Law of Attraction – or Distraction? by David Spetner

Law of Attraction – or Distraction?

Image by Anna Aristova

 “You are here to create the world around you that you choose.”
– Abraham-Hicks on The Law of Attraction
“To seek a special person or a thing to add to you to make yourself complete, can only mean that you believe some form is missing.
What form can be a substitute for God the Father’s Love?”
– A Course in Miracles
How could two spiritually-based philosophies be so radically opposed?  The answer is simple.  They’re each talking about a different world.  We live in two worlds simultaneously, one of spirit and one of ego.  (When I say ego, I don’t mean it in terms of us focusing on our looks or making ourselves more important than we are, the ego is simply our human identity in the physical world; our body, our gender, our name, race, beliefs, experiences, etc.)  As we pursue our spiritual paths, we make decisions guiding us towards either building our ego or our God-identity while alternating between the two as both are necessary for survival on Earth.  While Abraham-Hicks, the people who originally spread the idea of The Law of Attraction on a popular scale, confidently state, “The Law of Attraction is the most powerful Law of the Universe.” A key question is then who’s doing the attracting, your ego or your spirit?  Noting this conundrum, the Bible puts it rather succinctly, “You cannot serve two masters.”
I was a devoted follower of The Law of Attraction for a long time.  It changed my world – because it works.  If you can tune your vibration towards something what you want, you can attract it into your life.  But after listening to dozens of recordings, attending two live seminars and twice having the opportunity to speak to the channeled Abraham beings myself, it is evident that 75% or so of the participants are interested in fulfilling three primary desires; a loving relationship, good health (that was mine) and having enough money to do or buy whatever we want.  These are the basic things people in the western world want to make themselves happy in our egoic world.  But do these things truly bring happiness?  Aren’t they, as A Course in Miracles says, really yearnings for the things we only think will complete us – meaning that life and God are not adequate the way they are?  What happens to the concepts of living in the moment and accepting things the way they are right now?  Byron Katie calls this making friends with what is.
Whom we love, how much money or things we possess and having the perfect career all serve to build and strengthen our ego – which is fine if that’s all we truly seek.  But our spiritual being yearns only for one thing — connection to God — which we often call enlightenment, a state that is ever more fulfilling and joyful.  In addition, many spiritual teachers tell us that the joy of enlightenment lasts forever, beyond our limited physical life.
The next most obvious question is;  Can’t we have both?  We can, as they’re not always mutually exclusive, but sometimes, and I believe most of the time, they are.  For example, we might tune our vibration to attracting the perfect love relationship, but if we also want connection and guidance from God, that perfect relationship might fall apart soon after it starts.  Why?  Because when we ask for God’s love and guidance, it might include a lesson that what we ultimately want doesn’t come from this relationship.  As it is often said, true fulfillment comes from “Letting go and letting God.”  Also consider that we might attract the perfect love relationship and want it to last forever, but what if that conflicts with our mate’s desires?  What if after a year into the perfect relationship, our mate decides they want to move on by either leaving us — or even this world?  This is a question that Abraham-Hicks answers by saying that universal energy is like a big, complex computer that can put in all these apparently opposite desires into perfect resolution, to which my satirical side says, OK… maybe.
All this being said, I still recommend people explore Law of Attraction books, recordings and groups if they feel drawn to them, as the practice can provide valuable lessons in discovering what you ultimately want.  And once you get what you want, or even just see that it’s possible, you might decide to move on from nourishing your ego identity to nourishing your relationship with God.  And yes – we can tune our vibration to that as well.
Is it reasonable to discover our enlightenment if we ask for everything positive and then expect it?  If so, where does the enlightenment fit in?  Enlightenment isn’t shaping earthly forces to provide what we want.  Rather, it’s the strength and insight to realize that the real world is the spiritual one, not the one that says that cars, relationships and health will bring us happiness.  What if our aspiring happiness includes things like living in a world without hunger, without innocent people being slaughtered on a daily basis?  Is it possible to tune our personal vibration to end those things?  No, instead we’re going to have to reach a point where we accept what’s going on in this physical world, do what we can to make it a better one and always be willing to find true happiness in accepting what is.

Russia likely to lead the way.‏

Insights Into the Future of Russia

Kin’s Domain

Here are several quotes from the Edgar Cayce readings in reference to Russia:

“…out of Russia comes again the hope of the world” – Edgar Cayce
The following quotes are from Edgar Cayce’s predictions of Russia’s rise in spiritual stature, and therefore world leadership, in the upcoming global transformation. These quotes are posted on David Icke’s blog:
“…out of Russia comes again the hope of the world”
– Edgar Cayce

Edgar Cayce (1877-1945), the so-called “sleeping prophet”, made a number of remarkably accurate predictions of the future. In 1934, Cayce predicted the beginning and end of World War II many years before it happened. He predicted the end of Communism, and that Russia would be born again. He also saw a strong religious movement coming out of Russia.
Throughout the readings of the ‘Sleeping Prophet’ Edgar Cayce we again encounter amazing references to Russia’s special place in the cosmic plan. Cayce said:
“In Russia there comes the hope of the world, not as that sometimes termed of the communistic, or Bolshevik, no; but freedom, freedom! That each man will live for his fellow man! The principle has been born. It will take years for it to be crystallized, but out of Russia comes again the hope of the world.”
(Edgar Cayce, 1944, No. 3976-29)… for changes are coming, this may be sure — an evolution, or revolution in the ideas of religious thought. The basis of it for the world will eventually come out of Russia; not communism, no! But rather that which is the basis of the same, as the Christ taught — His kind of communism! (Edgar Cayce, c. 1930, No. 452-6)On Russia’s religious development will come the greater hope of the world. Then that one or group that is the closer in its relationship [with Russia] may fare the better in gradual changes and final settlement of conditions as to the rule of the world. (Edgar Cayce, c.1932)[In Russia] a new understanding has come and will come to a troubled people… (Edgar Cayce, c.1938)


Cayce’s Predictions Also Parallel Anastasia’s Visions for Russia

Reading these quotes from Edgar Cayce reminds me of Anastasia’s vision for Russia in which Russia becomes the cleanest country in the world ecologically, and partly because of this, the most prosperous country in the world. 
In her imagery of Russia’s future, most of the people become owners of their own garden/home plot of land referred to as a Kin’s Domain. The people are of exceptional health, growing remarkably tasty, healthful food highly sought after by the rest of the world. While other countries are steeped in their polluted cities with a sickly populous, the Russian economy became the wealthiest in the world – largely because of tourism where millions come to Russia to experience their pure water, clean air, and amazing food grown on their millions of Kin’s Domains. Russia leads the world in natural medical treatment, so the globe flocks to Russia for rest and healing.
The owners of the Kin’s Domains are some of the wealthiest in the world due to the massive volume of produce able to be grown on even a 2-3 acre parcel and the high prices they are able to get for their unparalleled quality in home grown food staples. 
The children raised on these Kin’s Domains are of exceptional intelligence, partly due to the powerful awakening influence of living close to the land in an unpolluted environment, consuming home grown food, pure water and pure ion-rich air. (In current time, it was not that long ago the one of Russia’s alternative schools based on Anastasia’s concepts sent their first 12 year old to get her PhD from a Russian University (children can complete 11 years of primary education in just 1-2 years, self-paced, in this kind of learning environment). 
The spiritual awakening that is derived from living close to the land, while living and educating the young in ways suggested by Anastasia, is beyond that which is taught in most religions. Imagine going back to the lifestyle of the Garden of Eden and realizing how that very lifestyle was designed to be an ideal environment for the development of the human soul. All of the best influences for human health and mental/spiritual development is built into such an ecosystem.  
It saddens me to think of how ignorant the political and religious leaders of our world have been, especially here in America, and especially when you consider how beautiful it could have been for all of us (including the political pawns), had the self-serving agendas of the ignorant elite and their followers been given up in favor of supporting the greater good of humankind. The world would already have become the Garden of Eden all over again. 
What an awakening this will be when it finally dawns on us as a human people that there is no better way to go than back to the land to commune with God through Nature.
The handwriting is on the wall. Russia is likely to lead the way, in fact, they already have. Remember this?:The Dachas of Russia Produce Over 50% of Russia’s Food Requirements on 10% of the Agricultural Land.

In 1999, 35 million small family plots produced 90% of Russia’s potatoes, 77% of vegetables, 87% of fruits, 59% of meat, 49% of milk — way to go, people!


In 2003 Russia passed a law to give Russian citizens 2.2-6.8 acres of land each and made the land tax-free. Today over 35 million Russians live on their “dacha plot” and produce over 50% of Russia’s food requirements on only 10% of Russia’s agricultural land, by far outperforming the big agra farms who own the other 90%. This concept of giving away land was inspired by the Ringing Cedars books and those in Russia who appealed to the President to make this happen. As a result of this one action, Russia is well on her way to becoming the wealthiest nation, and the cleanest ecologically, on earth. How this may become a reality in Russia, or any other country in the world, is explained in detail in the books on Anastasia, which I recommend highly. The books can be found here:



Why Russia in the lead?

My guess is that Russians are less burdened by the schism suffered in the  West between Spirituality and a intractably-bogged-down materialist $cience willfully out of touch with anything Real. Dominant Western science is a type of “fiat-$cience” polluted like bad coin & bad medicine by the un-Real.

For those with a Russian education or acquaintances Science and Spirituality are a continuum of truth, not a split-brain conundrum. I believe this to be true, culturally, of the BRIICS nations generally, among which some count Indonesia. We have Brazil, Russia, India, Indonesia and South Africa among the total of 8 large trading nations who intend to dump the $USD and the Euro and form their own currency bloc. Practical people.

Best wishes,

Study: Some Eco-Friendly Light Bulbs May Put Health At Risk

MIAMI (CBSMiami) Reporting Al Sunshine

Every time you turn on the lights, you may be putting yourself at risk, according to a disturbing new study.

Energy efficient bulbs are eco-friendly and can save you big bucks, but experts say that some could also have a dark side.

“When there is something in your house, you don’t perceive any danger, you wouldn’t get that close to an x-ray in a doctor’s office,” explained Miriam Rafailovich, Professor of Materials Science at Stony Brook University in New York.

Money saving, compact fluorescent light bulbs emit high levels of ultra violet radiation, according to a new study. Research at Long Island’s Stony Brook found that the bulbs emit rays so strong that they can actually burn skin and skin cells.

“The results were that you could actually initiate cell death,” said Marcia Simon, a Professor of Dermatology.

Exposure to the bulbs could lead to premature aging and skin cancer, according to doctors.

“It can also cause skin cancer in the deadliest for, and that’s melanoma,” said Dr. Rebecca Tung.

In every bulb that researchers tested they found that the protective coating around the light creating ‘phosphor’ was cracked, allowing dangerous ultraviolet rays to escape.

Homeowners expressed concern over the effect that the bulbs could have on children.

“That’s very unfortunate because the kids are getting exposed to so many different things at a younger age,” said Vicky Cobb.

As the federal government phases out the old incandescent bulbs in favor of more efficient bulbs like compact fluorescents, CFCs are among the choices of which bulb they use.

“Now that you’re telling me there’s a health risk, I really don’t think it’s fair that they would not sell the other kind of light bulbs,” said Cobb.

The compact fluorescent industry claims that the bulbs are safe, but admitted that they emit ultraviolet rays. The industry released a statement that said “the levels of UV radiation emitted are acceptably low,” and that they are safe under normal use.

Stony Brook researches advised that customers exercise caution and stay two feet away from the bulbs at all times, while storing them in an overhead fixture or lamp.

The Pure Soul is Granted to the One Who Works a Lot
… The main reason behind the dilapidation of body and illness is a laziness of man, his unwillingness to change for better. And a consequence of such spiritual laziness is Avidya, the ignorance. The rest of the sins take roots in ignorance. Oftentimes a human being does not realize that while he identifies himself with his body and mind – whatever he do on this planet will not lead him to God, but to the opposite. In order to make an earthling stop, ponder upon it and condemn his own thoughts and actions the Angel of Karma sends this soul an illness, a malady. Usually at first a light illness is sent by the Teacher. If a human fails to understand the meaning of an illness, if he resorts to various psychics, healers and doctors, but doesn’t wish to change from within, then the first illness is followed by the second one – a serious illness. And if an incarnated soul still doesn’t get the message sent with an illness, if unwillingness to perfect oneself continues, then the Angel sends an earthling an untreatable disease, so he do not take up space on Earth claimed by tens of other unembodied souls.
According to the theory of hermeticism, a human body lives by the rules of three-dimensional space, but a soul lives by the spiritual rules. A physical body requires: a constant strain of electromagnetic field between the planetary poles; water and vegetarian food charged with kind thoughts; pure air; warmness of green lands and woods. An incarnated soul requires energy supply from the astral and mental world, called Prana; positive impressions, reverential feelings, good emotions, harmonious information… When there’s harmony between seven subtle bodies comprising the human aura – there’s good health of a human. The absence of harmony means there’s illness… All the maladies are projected downward: from the soul to the mind, from the mind to the wishes, from the wishes to the body illnesses. The soul constructs thoughts, and thoughts construct human body…
The auric cocoon is made of matter much more subtle then the one that constitutes the physical world and our bodies. An aura of a healthy human being appears as an egg-shaped cloud consisting of clean, unmixed colors: blue, azure, violet, golden, pink, light green, white. …Subtle bodies of a human build each other from the spiritual center towards roughening of matter just like concentric water circles that derive and move away from the spot where the rock hit the water. The farther the wave is from the center the bigger the distortion is from the initial circle. That is why we always have to align all our subtle bodies to the first circle, in the image and likeness of the Spirit.
Any shade of brown or dirty color in the aura, the distortion of egg-shaped oval, the reduction of distance from the cocoon shell to 40 centimeters tells a clairvoyant that this human should expect problems with their health and strained relations with outside world. Approximately 80% of the people today don’t have an egg-shaped aura as they should, it rather looks like a mushroom turned upside down. Spiritual energy centers of such people are completely blocked; only two chakras are fully functional, two main energy centers out of seven – survival center and reproduction center. Also the abdominal chakra (solar plexus) responsible for logical reasoning and ego gets involved. Blockage of fifth, sixth and seventh chakras’ function results in Illnesses and misfortunes of the majority of people. … All the things and events per se are neutral. But we look at the events through the prism called aura. And a color of this prism is projected to the surrounding world, painting it into bright or dirty, dismal colors. That is why yogis say: «Change yourself – and the whole Universe will change».
… First and foremost, a human is an immortal spirit. And our bodies are merely garments that get replaced by the Spirit as they get old, they are only a tool for learning the laws of different worlds. There are plethora of rough and subtle universes. In each of these worlds the spirit has its own clothing, a “space suit” – the body.
… Unfortunately, the evolution of soul for the majority of people on our planet takes course unconsciously, thus any suffering during this process is the best teacher. And on the contrary, so called “earthly happiness” makes our souls lazier and prone to illnesses. Sometimes continuous misery embitters us, makes us aggressive – and this is our huge mistake which derives from our failure to understand the meaning of life and the meaning of illness.

The best cure for all illnesses is unity with God, that is yoga.
At all times people have been looking for an answer to the everlasting question: what is the meaning of life, what is the reason for illness, why do are bodies and souls get hurt? Usually an illness is considered to be a great misfortune, an evil by the common people. They try to fight their infirmities with help of other people and eradicate their illness by any means possible. People’s unwillingness to understand the meaning of illness and cure it on their own is a great sin before the Spirit. There are lots of drugs, diagnostic and therapeutic equipment available nowadays, and the more we use them the farther we move away from the true reason of illness – the character of an incarnated soul… Before people used to be treated by the priests who possessed knowledge of philosophy, religion, exoteric and esoteric medicine. These days people get treated by the narrow specialists (some specialize in eye treatment, some deal with nerves etc.). So we spend all our lives knocking on different doors, not realizing that this way we worsen the situation… It seems to us that the world reacts to us in a wrong way, but actually it is us who react to the world in a wrong way, while the world around us stays neutral. We forgot that the outside world of a human is only a replica of his inside world, a pale image of his soul. The message in our minds should sound like this: «I welcome the entire world with all its peculiarities!» Life is a stream favorable for our spiritual development, although its external manifestations might seem unfavorable to us. However, it is exactly misfortunes and illnesses that point out what has to change inside of us. Remember, my dear readers, that you are immortal, while fear of death turns you into slaves. All the situations and all the people we encounter make us constantly learn something and we have to be grateful for that… We have to foster courage and commitment in ourselves in order to fight our laziness, to change our thoughts and actions for better, to accept responsibility before God for our health, as well as the health of our planet.
Professor Kurt Tepperwein said: «Our bodies and all our lives are nothing but the exact reflection of our spiritual state, because the spirit is what forms the body and defines the fate». As far back as a century ago Edward Bach, the British physician (1886-1936) noted: «Illness is not a manifestation of cruelty or punishment, but merely an amendment and a tool used by our soul to point our mistakes out, to hold us back from even bigger delusions, to prevent us from doing even more harm and get us back onto our path to the truth and light». The illnesses of body make a human start learning the eternal laws of Cosmos: the laws of disinterestedness, compassion and altruistic love. It is exactly illnesses that make a human smarter, make him look for the reasons of suffering inflicted upon him in his own thoughts, rather than the physical world. They make us correct our way of life: change our mindset towards ourselves and understanding life, change our life style, make us love our body and take care of it not to satisfy our ego, but to satisfy the wishes of our soul. A physician should remember that every human is at the unique stage of his own evolution and therefore requires a unique approach. And illness is just one of the various ways to test a human, a pretext for change of personality for better, a pretext for the self-cultivation, one of the forced factors contributing to the spiritual development that fully depends on the willpower of the particular human.
…My dear readers, my opinion is that in half of the cases a physician shouldn’t treat the illness of a person consulting him. The task of the real doctor is to: perform an examination of an illness, explain its meaning to a patient. To induce a patient to actively fight for change of their own character and world outlook. By changing inside a human will treat both their soul and their body on their own. Only this way the Angel’s lesson may be learned. And if some psychic or doctor will try to prevent this lesson (an illness) from happening, then the Angel will punish both the doctor and the patient some day. The lesson will still be learned by this couple of earthlings. No one can repeal the Laws of Karma. Love your illnesses, because they are your best teachers that give you fare grades for the inappropriate behavior. Only these «teachers» don’t leave the grades in school record books, but leave them in your bodies. Develop yourselves and as you acquire deeper understanding of meaning and reasons of illness, independently strive for good grades with help of mental, psychical and physical exercises. Once you are healed, do not stop training your body and soul; quite the opposite, you should accelerate your propulsion towards the Creator with help of mastered exercises…
A truly spiritual person may not fear any maladies… And the spirituality is always aimed inwards, to the very sacral center of being. The spirituality is an ability to see God inside yourself and interact with Him without mediators! All the rest – Love, altruism, kindheartedness, purity, charity, righteousness are merely a consequence of spirituality. There is no one and nothing in the entire universe that would not be spiritual. Everything is by God and everything is a Creator himself. If during meditation we are increasing the vibrations of consciousness from chakra to chakra, then our soul stops identifying itself with the body and mind: at such moment our soul starts talking to God.
You should not be sitting and waiting for a wizard who would come and make you a highly spiritual person by the wave of his hand. No one will ever come and make your soul enlightened, this is your job!

Yes on Prop 37′s biggest supporter was…Monsanto

by Jon Rappoport

December 10, 2012

We’ve all heard about hidden agendas, divide and conquer, controlling the narrative, and problem-reaction-solution. These are certainly time-honored and effective strategies for political elites.

To get simpler, we could just say lie-cheat-steal-kill.

But let’s approach all this from a somewhat different angle.

A powerful elite group first forms a goal, an objective. It clarifies that goal. For example: domination of the global food supply.

With that goal in mind, and with the technology to genetically modify food crops, huge corporations like Monsanto, along with their politicians firmly in their pockets, decide to patent every kind of food seed possible.

Soon, they own food. They license/sell food seeds. They expand the number of GMO food crops.

But they also realize they have to deal with opposition.

There are many people who oppose GMO food. These people expose this food as nutrient-deficient and dangerous to human health. They expose the fact that much more toxic pesticide is sprayed on this new Roundup Ready food. They expose the fact that actual ownership of the food supply is passing into the hands of these elite corporations. They expose the fact that the inserted genes drift from crop to crop, field to field, and contaminate non-GMO crops.

What to do?

Monsanto and its allies have a time table. They believe they can accomplish, in a relatively short time, a fait accompli. There will be so many licensed GMO food crops and so many drifting genes, the very idea of ridding the world of GMO crops will be seen as impossible. continue to read

A new world will emerge beyond November 13th, 2012

We find this to be an incredible article, an in depth report by Astrologer Salvador Russo as to the potent significance of recent Total Solar Eclipse which goes on into the future in ways that are just amazing… According to Salvador, the old ways are on their way OUT!  And this is what the Mayan wise men and Astrologers saw so long ago, and why this time on Planet Earth is so significant.

This article delivers an indepth look at the amazing power of this eclipse today, which goes beyond today’s aspects, and into the future as the corrupt system begins to break down of it’s own inherent evil.

The Total Solar Eclipse in Scorpio, November 13th, 2012

On November 13th, 2012, a Total Solar Eclipse ] occurred [ in the House of Scorpio effecting a grand bifurcation and transmutation of all things upon the Earth.  Beginning with and beyond this event positive, obvious, and powerful life transformations of all magnitudes will manifest brilliantly within our lives.  The eclipse will provide the cosmic ignition to Saturn, setting its young transit in Scorpio ablaze, and it will have a crippling effect upon those who have attempted to subvert humanity’s predestined evolution.  A vibrational divide will commence which will separate lower vibrational beings from their higher counterparts, to include, and especially in the physical sense.  With rebirth being a potent theme, look for life to become far more profound beyond the shadow of this Scorpio solar eclipse!
Expect the following types of Scorpio solar eclipse synchronicities: supernatural psychic activations, literal and metaphorical deaths, total transformations of material circumstances, great transferences of power, investigations that shock and cause outcry, necessary and favorable conversions of resources, the relentless exposure of evil, crime, and secrecy, the purging of corruption, medical traumas and the sudden awareness of disease, sacred and paradigm ending revelations, sudden appropriations of wealth, great disruptions to secret societies, the breaking of entanglements, the deepening of spiritual devotion, breakthroughs in psychotherapy, the enforcement of accountability, public shamings, and revivals of health.
As a rule, all eclipses sync with divinely ordained experiences, the most powerful type being the total solar eclipse.  When an eclipse occurs currents of fate ripple throughout our lives.  It is important to know this because there are times in life where God shows His hand.  Eclipses qualify to be included among these times.  The nature of one’s eclipse experience will always reflect their Light Quotient, which is the composite of one’s mental, spiritual, and physical vibrations.  Eclipses are designed to quantum leap our lives and they have been heralded throughout history as omens of radical change – and rightly so!  By referencing one’s own horoscope, which is in fact a sacred document, one can very easily determine where an eclipse will have the greatest impact on their lives.  Their effects needn’t be secret.
Quite literally, a new world will emerge beyond November 13th.  The bifurcation effect of this eclipse, and of Saturn’s transit in Scorpio, will work to physically separate people based on their vibrational polarity.  People will begin to disconnect and reconnect in the most intimate of ways that allow for new strengths to emerge.  As a result, those of a lower vibration will find themselves unbelievably restricted and amidst impossibly difficult circumstances while others of a higher vibration will enjoy an empowering and beautifying metamorphosis that will allow them to advance in life and serve God’s will for our race and planet.  Polarity is one of the principle laws of nature so watch as people are divided and reconnected in accordance with it.
Two of the preeminent themes of Saturn’s transit in Scorpio will make dramatic entrances with this eclipse: that of sex and disease, and of all of the things connected to them.  Sexual indiscretion, to include past indiscretions, will now carry painful, costly, and potentially deadly consequences.  One would be wise to abstain from sexual activity lest it is accompanied with the love vibration.  Sexuality will become a topic of intense and sustained trial where the natures of gender will serve as a plane of challenge, growth, and learning.  We are wise to treat sex with respect because it belongs to the House that also encompasses what is sacred and what is deadly.
Victories against and manifestations of disease will also soon present as major life themes for millions and millions of people.  Recovery and cure will come to some while others are abducted by affliction and forced into dark territory, personal vibration being the determining factor.  The element of water will become more vital than ever so observe as the aqueous comes into focus as a carrier of pathogens, a course for healing, and a domain of adversity.  We have entered a time where hidden cures will become disclosed and where great swathes of our population will accept the grim reality that disease and death have been cloaked as food and medicine by our most trusted earthly agencies.  Revelation and transformation do belong to the same House: Scorpio.
This eclipse and its cycle, of a force so great as to cause the end of an international war, will bring the reality of the occurrence of the most heinous crimes powerfully into the collective consciousness.  In specific I am referring to human slavery, ritual sacrifice, pedophilia, torture networks, sex trafficking, drug smuggling, criminal conspiracy and coverup, and deeply entrenched satanic networks, all of which have been sanctioned and enabled by the highest offices and personages of modern international society.  It is promised that the filth of the House of Scorpio will be brought into sight.  Babylon will be seen as never before!
Organized crime syndicates will now begin to be dismantled and will be mortally wounded as Saturn transits Scorpio, the House of crime.  As the participants of this world possess some of the lowest vibrations imaginable reality itself will bleed them dry.  Criminal cooperation will become a thing of the past.  This miserable lot will implode from unrelenting stressors to include disconnection from logistical support, raw materials, and financial liquidity, criminal prosecutions, chain of command failures, and factional war – watch as they turn on themselves.  Spread the word: organized crime has no future.
It is of personal importance that beyond this eclipse and during its subsequent six moon cycle we each work to transmute every form and instance of darkness that we find in our lives into something resembling divinity.  A high eclipse calling would be that we all strive to become experts in the ancient alchemical art of transmutation.  With this focus we will need to re-allocate our energy and resources into the areas of our lives which are most in need.  Many of us will need to let go of things long held dear in order to fare well into the future.  Some will be bitter to arrive at such a crossroads but the time for the most drastic types of life transformations to occur has come, signaled by our shadowed sun.
With the goal of self-mastery in our hearts and minds we would each benefit from an internal inspection that focuses on the identification of flaws and of our ability to evolve beyond them.  To aid in this process I encourage my readers to purge things that are known to be harmful from their midst, in any shape or form, material or immaterial, internal or external.  The pluming of the psyche will be a required course where psychological self-reflection and awareness of self-limitation become crystallized in our consciousness.  As arduous as this type of inner-journey may be delight in knowing that the momentum and rhythm of life, as soon to be established by the coming eclipse, will promote the success of astonishingly positive re-creations of our character and our lives.
As many of us have become aware our minds can interface with the cosmos to alter our futures in tremendously favorable ways.  Spacetime is malleable to choice and intention.  On that note here is an example of an intention to set, during the upcoming eclipse, so that maximum benefit may be enjoyed: “I have transcended every lower vibrational aspect of my life beginning with and beyond this eclipse.”  November 13th is a wise time to set benevolent and encompassing intentions, by the way.  A quickened ascension in life is the reward for this verbal or telepathic effort.
A black sun approaches for all who are living, some won’t survive it, and this can mean singing.  A time of rebirth, but where will life take us?  Those rich in spirit know that nothing can break us.  Let’s purge all their poison, they think themselves clever, their methods grow obvious, we can easily sever.  A new world is dawning, one of virtue and Light, God’s hand is coming with the scorpion’s might.  This House is intense, like a coal into diamond, by vanquishing fear you can learn how to find Him.
Our cycle of life does include death, so while we’re all here let’s give this our best.  Mystery and water, mixed close by the Father, the elements have gender, like a son and a daughter.  As much as they try they’re promised to fail, Babylon’s is fallen, their leaders turn frail.  Now of all these last words, these next are worth most, pray to God dearly for our spirit’s rebirth.

Science overturns view of humans as naturally ‘nasty’

(AFP) – Feb 20, 2012

VANCOUVER, Canada — Biological research increasingly debunks the view of humanity as competitive, aggressive and brutish, a leading specialist in primate behavior told a major science conference.

“Humans have a lot of pro-social tendencies,” Frans de Waal, a biologist at Emory University in Atlanta, told the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

New research on higher animals from primates and elephants to mice shows there is a biological basis for behavior such as cooperation, said de Waal, author of “The Age of Empathy: Nature’s Lessons for a Kinder Society.”

Until just 12 years ago, the common view among scientists was that humans were “nasty” at the core but had developed a veneer of morality — albeit a thin one, de Waal told scientists and journalists from some 50 countries.

But human children — and most higher animals — are “moral” in a scientific sense, because they need to cooperate with each other to reproduce and pass on their genes, he said.

Research has disproved the view, dominant since the 19th century, typical of biologist Thomas Henry Huxley’s argument that morality is absent in nature and something created by humans, said de Waal.

And common assumptions that the harsh view was promoted by Charles Darwin, the so-called father of evolution, are also wrong, he said.

“Darwin was much smarter than most of his followers,” said de Waal, quoting from Darwin’s “The Descent of Man” that animals that developed “well-marked social instincts would inevitably acquire a moral sense or conscience.”

De Waal showed the audience videos from laboratories revealing the dramatic emotional distress of a monkey denied a treat that another monkey received; and of a rat giving up chocolate in order to help another rat escape from a trap.

Such research shows that animals naturally have pro-social tendencies for “reciprocity, fairness, empathy and consolation,” said de Waal, a Dutch biologist at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia.

“Human morality is unthinkable without empathy.”

Asked if wide public acceptance of empathy as natural would change the intense competition on which capitalist economic and political systems are based, de Waal quipped, “I’m just a monkey watcher.”

But he told reporters that research also shows animals bestow their empathy on animals they are familiar with in their “in-group” — and that natural tendency is a challenge in a globalized human world.

“Morality” developed in humans in small communities, he said, adding: “It’s a challenge… it’s experimental for the human species to apply a system intended for (in-groups) to the whole world.”
