Nutritional supplements kill ZERO people, while Big Pharma’s dangerous medications kill millions worldwide

Doctors who dismiss the healing aspects of nutrient absorption and utilization are quick to schedule unnecessary tests and prescribe synthetic formulas concocted by the price-gouging pharmaceutical industry. Sometimes patients pressure doctors to intervene this way. Sometimes doctors feel pressured by drug company salespeople to prescribe the latest side-effect ridden pill. To make matters worse, the physician's education is controlled by the drug more>>>>.

Exploring the Soul

Daily OM: Throughout the journey from birth to death, many people choose to question life, strive for improvement, seek out knowledge, and search for the divine. Simply put, this is the essence of spirituality. One’s spiritual practice can take on many forms, because embracing the spiritual is a very personal pursuit. While many people do relate their spirituality to a God or Goddess, this quest for the divine, or oneness with the universe, always springs from within. It doesn’t matter where you find your spiritual path. We are all fundamentally spiritual beings and the essence of that lies in knowing one’s true self and finding a peace that comes from within rather than the outside world. It is in remembering this that we awaken to our personal path. The spiritual path springs forth from a daily routine that reaffirms our personal connection with a purpose or a way of life. Practicing compassion, gratitude, appreciation, forgiveness, generosity, meditation, and taking care of one’s wellbeing can all be a part of one’s spiritual more>>>...

Is this the ghost of a drowned man? Lorry driver spots spooky figure running through a tunnel in Ireland

Daily Mail: A lorry driver claims to have caught the ghost of a drowned man wandering into a tunnel during rush hour. Stephen Smyth was taking pictures as he travelled through Cork, Ireland, with colleague George Furst. But, after checking one of the photographs, the duo spotted what they believe could be ghostly figure. Mr Furst, 45, said: 'When we looked at the picture Stephen suddenly said: "What the hell is that?"

'I couldn't believe my eyes - it looked like an old man wearing an old tweed coat walking down the road into the tunnel" more>>>...

Personal Tales

Daily OM: Everyone, at one time or another, has wanted to express his or her story. Writing a memoir to read privately, share with family or friends, or publish is an emotionally satisfying way to gain perspective on your experiences while sharing your unique voice. We’ve all experienced feelings and events in our lives that we are longing to write down. Giving in to that urge can give you an outlet for purging any frustration, anxiety, or long-dormant feelings. No one else has to read it. You may even want to write your story without reading it right away. Satisfying the need to tell your story is not predicated upon your writing ability. It does, however take effort to write down the truth in detail. Your memories, captured on paper as descriptive scenes, sights, sounds, and scents, may at first seem disconnected or incomplete. But rest assured that you possess the ability to shape your recollections into more>>>...

Acting as a Guardian

Daily Om: One of the greatest gifts we can give another human being is to act as their guardian. Whether this gift is related to a specific situation or is representative of an ongoing commitment, we each benefit from the association. To protect someone is to walk with them in challenging times and see them through safely to the other side. In doing this, we grow with them. And those under our guardianship derive confidence from our support and assistance, enabling them to persevere through almost any conditions.

There are many reasons we feel inspired to serve as guardians to those we care for. Sometimes just holding the space for somebody allows them to do what is necessary to grow or heal. We may simply want to see that our friend or loved one is taken care of and equipped to prevail over difficult circumstances. We may also sense that we are in possession of knowledge our loved ones are lacking yet need in their current stage of more>>>...

Totem Animal for the Day

Today's TOTEM ANIMAL is the Raven ...

The Raven has been dreaded as a bird of ill fortune; distruction and darkness; but in the spiritual world he is a bird who brings protection. He warns the forces of light of oncoming destruction and battle therefor giving us the power to guard and time for preparation. These destructive forces are a natural and necessary facet of life even though they are painful; but the raven's relationship to the forces of destruction does not mean he is the bringer of the destructive forces yet better considered the messenger.

The Raven is a bird of protection by warning the forces of light of upcoming destruction or battles; so they may prepare themselves. His association with destruction does not make him the bringer of it; but better yet the messenger. By heeding his warnings one is able to possibly change the impact of a situation even though they may not be able to change the inevitable. Like the Druids you can learn to read of the type of warning or message the Raven is sending you by learning to understand his flight behavior and even the sounds he makes

The Raven brings powerful healing qualities by a process known as the resolutions of opposites. This meaning in darkness there is light; and in light there is darkness- death is necessary for rebirth- destruction is necessary for renewal. There must be death in order to make room for birth. By using this process of resolution of opposites we learn to resolve conflicts that have long lain buried in our unconscience or our past. There must be darkness if we are to emerge into the light.

Daily OM: Walking through a Japanese garden, one truly feels the life force energy that is known as Hado. Hado isn’t just present in Japan, but it is a concept that has existed in Japan for centuries. The two Japanese characters that make up the word Hado mean “wave” and “move” - perfect words to describe the energy vibrations that permeate all life. Hado is present in all things, animate and inanimate. It resides everywhere, even in the air and in people.

The study of hado tells us that the energetic vibrations from our thoughts affect on our physical realities. Each of us has the ability to manifest a specific intention through the hado that we send out – from making our jewelry shine to changing the atmosphere of a room full of people to transforming the hado of an empty space. However, we are often unaware that our thoughts are creating vibrations in the world outside our minds. Once we know that this is the case, we can become more aware of our negative thinking and train ourselves to stay positive and think with more>>>...

Between The Sun And The Moon

"I stood on higher ground, between the sun and the moon. I felt those warming rays of first sun light penetrate my being to the right of me; I felt the emotional tentacles of moonlight touch me from the left of me. The feeling was like no other. Intoxicating. Magical. Enchanting.

So, so powerful.

I remembered then my pagan soul. My ancient part. My authentic self. I know the difference between a truth and the lie. Between the wolf and the coyote.

The trickster I acknowledge. I feel its presence in human veins. Its voice in our minds - insisting on ritual, on routine, on survival, on servitude, on being nothing more than slaves.

Then the sun's warmth penetrates, the imagination flares. We are freedom of expression, we are imagination, we are fire, we are light, we cannot be contained. And that is the truth, the light, the hope, the dream come alive ..." - Matthew James

The Contradiction

Duality:the state or quality of being two or in two parts; dichotomy

Black and white. Wrong and right. Night and day. Left and right. Joy and sorrow. The list is endless ... duality is the fact of life on this manifest plane. Comparision and contrast. The advanced software learning program which is life on the manifest plane.

It is what we are about, and what we have to survive. A realm of comparisons on a daily basis. As a man or a woman, either/or duality is our nature. It is unavoidable.

We have polar opposites within ourselves. Call it yin and yang. Masculine and feminine energies that course through our being. The male principle or power and the feminine principle or beauty. We have to balance these polarities. It is known medically as hormonal balance or hormonal imbalance. A fact of human life.

Because we are dualistic by nature, it cannot be denied. It needs to be controlled, but that is one of the many facts of life. We must be fearless when approaching our true nature.

There is only one energy, one magic. One nature. It is neither black or white. It is neither left or right. It is non-dualistic. It just is. Yet it is controlled by our inner polarities. Our intentions. Our fears. Our attitudes. This is the big lesson when dealing with magic. It is the attitude we have towards it. The attitude that dictates how we use the universal life force. Our polarities have to be in balance, which goes against the dualism within ourselves. Somehow we have to merge the dual natures. To do this we must go beyond the human and the mortal experience. Here is the contradiction.

To be non-dualistic means to exist beyond the mortal plane. The mortal plane exists only because of the contrasts. If you exist outside of the contrasts then you need not experience the dichotomy. Then why be here?

But to put ourselves in our true self state, which is a non-dualistic self, which we are supposed to do, we must defy this contradiction and exist as a non-dualistic being in a dualistic realm ...

This is the true meaning of spirit in the form of man. But how can spirit have conscious awareness in this realm? Consciousness here is prone to the rules of contrast and dualism. Therefore an entity of non-contrast awareness cannot exist in this realm. This is the crux of the contradiction - Matthew James

Trusting Your Gut

Daily Om: Gut feelings earn their name from the place in the body where they make themselves known. A pang in your gut when you may be doing the wrong thing, or a vibrant zing when your body approves, can guide you reliably at times when logic fails. Sometimes, when logic prevails, we ignore our gut and live to regret it, understanding later that a rational approach is only one way of determining what is going on in a situation and how we should react.

Our gut resides in the neighborhood of our solar plexus and the third chakra just above your belly button. When it is functioning well, we can trust its guidance and adjust our actions accordingly. Many of us have a tendency to hold in this area of our bodies. We may take shallow breaths that never reach this vital nexus that is the source of our more>>>...

Out-of-place artifacts suggestive of ancient high-tech civilizations

S.O.T.T: In Beyond Science, Epoch Times explores research and accounts related to phenomena and theories that challenge our current knowledge. We delve into ideas that stimulate the imagination and open up new possibilities. Share your thoughts with us on these sometimes controversial topics in the comments section below.

According to the conventional view of history, humans have only walked the Earth in our present form for some 200,000 years. Advanced civilizations appeared several thousand years ago, but much of the mechanical ingenuity we know in modern times began to develop only around the Industrial Revolution a couple hundred years ago.

Oopart (out-of-place artifact) is a term applied to dozens of prehistoric objects found in various places around the world that seem to show a level of technological advancement incongruous with the times in which they were made.

Many scientists attempt to explain them using natural phenomena. Others say such explanations ignore the mounting evidence that prehistoric civilizations possessed advanced technological knowledge that was lost throughout the ages only to be redeveloped in modern times.

We will look at a variety of ooparts here ranging in purported origin from millions of years ago to merely hundreds of years ago, but all said to show advancement well ahead of their more>>>...

Thought for the Day

"Trust your instincts, and make judgements on what your heart tells you. The heart will not betray you.” ― David Gemmell, Fall of Kings

Totem Animal for the Day

TODAYS' TOTEM ANIMAL is the Friarbird

These guys are a fantastic totem animal for people who work with balancing the chakras, or who fall out of balance very quickly.

Their habits are all about achieving the right balance, and being selective about what energy you allow into your body. Also fantastic for people who are making shields that let certain things in, and not others.

The Friarbird's message is "Balance, knowing how to balance your energy, being selective about how you receive and give out your energy, singing your song, possessing the ability to balance the energy of others, the unobtrusive healer, seeking and finding clarity, getting what’s yours, learning to be happy with blending into your surroundings."

Shining through the Clouds

Daily OM: When we’re in a good mood, we shine like the sun. But if we find ourselves in the presence of a person, or people, in a grumpy mood, it can feel like a dark cloud approaching to dim our radiance and block our positive way of seeing the world. We can remind ourselves that clouds pass, while the sun and stars continue to shine above.

Then it’s easier to think of these “grumps” affectionately, knowing that they only have the power to affect our mood if we allow it. With the power of change firmly in our hands, we can choose how to respond to a grumpy person, or a grumbling group of people, with confidence and understanding.

Like a lighthouse, we can continue to shine through the darkness, offering our light to help others find their way back to their more>>>...

It stings like the crack of a whip across mortal flesh. But the wound is not of the physical body. It is a ripping scar within the etheric persona. It is a constant burn. A constant reminder. It is the harshest of lessons to learn within mortal flesh.

The pain being described is the punishment for giving total trust to another human being. Only to have that trust completely abused. 

It is the torture of watching another human being acting without apparent conscience. Rubbing salt in the wound, seemingly oblivious to the wounding of a fellow being, they have caused.

The pain being described is betrayal.

Completely trusting a human being, considered as a friend. Only to get it completely wrong. The punishment for being a caring, helping and generous human being. Somehow the punishment cannot be right, when there is no crime
