Creating a future during an age of extinction requires changing ourselves profoundly. Any person joining a movement to change the future must also deeply examine themselves. Changing yourself is not for everyone but it is for the five percent of humanity on a journey to evolve. There are 400 million people in every region on Earth and we are not another generation just passing through this world like every previous generation either. We are an emerging new humanity who can create the future of humanity.

The task that is great seems daunting until you look around and see our whole world has changed overnight. Rather than sit on the fence paralyzed by doubt, our time to write a new human story is now right in front of us.

The pandemic sweeping today’s world has set in motion the final chapter of a global civilization no one can reverse because the Earth herself is rebalancing. People may want to believe everything will be normal just around the corner, but the human race is not going to return to its unsustainable production and consumption obsession. Like other great civilizations that slowly degraded and perished, the United States is among the many nations that are fracturing, fraying and winding down today.

During an age of extinction, it is the new humanity that can create the future of humanity.

No disrespect is meant to the person who assumed recovery was just around the corner. I know it is hard to imagine that humanity cannot end the pandemic and then repair some of the worst functions of our unsustainable society. But returning to normal is not in the cards.

Consider the top 1 percent of society. The top of our world has surpassed the combined wealth of the bottom 80 percent of our world’s population. With a minimalist conception of government with a dereliction of civic duties and mutual obligations, the sources of capital have lost the wisdom to reform an unsustainable economy in freefall whose population has exceeded its load limit on the planet. .

A new generation is called to cut the Gordian knot on the human condition and create a new way of living on Earth. The hope for humanity is found in a completely new field of possibilities.

A large global family is living in every region of the world at the present time. We have been quietly reflecting on the state of humanity for decades. We share a spiritual outlook. 

We honor nature’s intelligence. We possess a vast collective understanding about the soil, water, desert reclamation, biochar, mycelium, permaculture, biodynamic farming, holistic energy medicines, Earth Whispering and breakthrough technologies that exist in inventor basements that would change the human experience with free energy and other discoveries.

Among us is the complete know how for evolutionary building, based on whole system solutions. We are simply the best group on Earth to replace humanity’s entire, unsustainable way of building with a new way of living.

We will build a new living showcase high on a hill where a despairing, worried public could see with their own eyes how people can collaborate and respect without blame and finger pointing. In a time of social collapse, we can create a new living showcase where energy is free, food is nutritious, building materials are green, and holistic health and wellbeing practices navigate disease and pandemics into a post pandemic healthy, thriving era. 

Energy medicines new to the world would be available. New living homes would be affordable, practical, durable, and inspiring. As our global civilization slowly figures it out that humanity is in an age of extinction, a new human Earth accord can emerge showing the way for the people who want to live and thrive from a new living nation for the future of humanity.

Changing yourself is not for everyone. It is for the individual who wants to check their own negative egos, stop their blame and finger pointing and be the change that transforms the future themselves. We don’t have to change them. Humanity will follow this path to the future when each person is ready to change themselves.

BruceChaos1The Truth about ‘Chaos’

If you have watched the news lately, browsed the web, or even looked out the window, you may have noticed that something is going on. In the face of economic upheaval, religious violence, racial bloodshed, climate change and now, a viral pandemic, civilization is in a state of upheaval. The globe is enveloped in chaos.

Chaos? That sounds pretty scary! The reason is that most people confuse the word chaos with the word random. Random simply means the outcome or result of a process occurs simply by “chance.” In contrast, the opposite of random is the word determined, which means the outcome of a process can be predicted by understanding a sequence of cause and effect events.

BUT WAIT! Fact: Chaos is not random!

Chaos is actually a special case of determinism. While the outcome of a chaotic process is indeed determined, the number of inputs contributing to the process is so great, that it is mathematically impossible to calculate all of the data to predict what will inevitably result. Remember the story of the butterfly effect; in which a butterfly that flaps its wings in South America influences a storm in North America?

The weather is an example of chaos. You could make a totally accurate prediction of what the weather will be at twelve-noon on Monday in Paris … but one would first have to calculate the flapping wings of every butterfly and every other insect around the world, as well as measure every breeze on the planet, and a myriad of other contributing factors. Theoretically, the collective data would be able to make an accurate prediction of weather at every spot on the globe. The problem is that it is impossible to record all of the data necessary for that accuracy. So, weather prediction, using only a small data set, would not provide an accurate prediction but would represent more of a ‘probable’ prediction.

In regard to the current global chaos, the influence of human behavior has undermined the web of life and precipitated the planet’s Sixth Mass Extinction event. Is the current chaos expressing civilization’s end or is it signaling a new beginning for civilization?

Stepping into A New Phase of Civilization

Surprise! Nature is an expression of fractal geometry, the science that emphasizes the principle of “As above, so below.” Getting to the point, the evolution of human civilization is an expression of a fractal, self-similar, image of vertebrate evolution; the pattern of evolution that went from fish to amphibians, to reptiles, birds, and finally, mammals. Human civilization has completed the first four stages and is on the threshold of manifesting the fifth level, the ‘mammalian’ version of our evolution. The earliest version of civilization represented the ‘fish’ phase, a time when the lives of the early people were tied to the proximity of water, living off the fruits of the sea and traveling the planet from coast to coast.

Once humans developed the ability to dig wells and use viaducts to control the availability of water, they were able to move on to the land and generate agriculture. This was the equivalent of the ‘amphibian’ phase of human evolution, starting at the water and moving onto land. The introduction of technology pushed humanity to the next higher level of civilization’s evolution, its ‘reptilian’ phase. Reptiles, from lizards to dinosaurs, move and behave as powerful, Earth-bound digital ‘machines.’ When humans entered the industrial age, civilization advanced beyond agriculture and created a mechanized civilization. Interestingly, the ‘blood’ of the dinosaurs, oil, is the fuel that powers our ‘reptilian’ civilization.

In 1902, the industrial revolution enabled the Wright brothers to manifest human flight in North Carolina, an event that birthed the ‘bird’ phase of civilization. Civilization’s ‘bird’ phase culminated when humans landed on the Moon in 1969. The event was marked by the astronauts’ picture of the distant blue-green planet Earth on the Moon’s horizon.

This one photograph changed human civilization and launched the Earth Day movement, a time of Hippies and a time when people began to consciously recognize that we must take care of the children, the oceans, the lands and the air … a focus on nurturing Nature. It is not a coincidence that the character of mammals is that they are, by definition, ‘nurturers.’ The moon landing, the fullest evolution of the ‘bird’ phase, precipitated the evolution of the ‘mammalian’ phase of civilization.

Opportunity for a New Beginning

The current global chaos is a symptom of the pending mass extinction event. It is an expression of an inherent fractal pattern, in which Nature is informing us that our destructive ‘reptilian’ phase of exploiting Nature must come to an end. It is necessary that the ‘reptilian’ dinosaurs, the corporations that control government, stop desecrating Mother Nature for profits. It is time for us to collectively evolve to a higher level of consciousness and adopt the indigenous people’s insight as being ‘gardeners’ that nurture the planet. Nature is now calling us to adopt our ‘mammalian’ character as nurturers.

So where are we at the current moment? The most important point we must recognize is that the current chaos is not a ‘random’ character; it is an expression of an unfolding predetermined pattern. We are observing the collapse of the current destructive ‘reptilian’ civilization while simultaneously seeing the rise of the new, nurturing ‘mammalian’ culture.

The important conclusion of this communication is that the planetary upheaval we are now experiencing is not an ending, but a new beginning, offering an opportunity to birth a new, healthy, sustainable civilization. Employing an understanding of Nature’s inherent fractal pattern will enable human beings to create a social structure that will nurture the planet and its web of life, an evolutionary uprising that will ensure all of life has a chance to thrive into the future.

The conclusion is simple: Don’t focus on the structures that are collapsing. It is time to direct our intentions and our efforts in supporting the rise of a holistic, healthy and harmonious new civilization!

Humanity is set to face a rare convergence of three massive cycles of change. In this episode, Gregg Braden guides us through the evidence, which charts the simultaneous peaking of economic, human conflict and solar cycles. The rise and fall in each of these cycles holds major implications for our civilization. As all three cycles are beginning to peak, a new story about humanity emerges. For us to understand how this story will unfold, we must first take an honest look at who we really are and where we came from.

1583773870851-GettyImages-1205739129The blazar—powered by an extremely bright black hole that can blast a hole through galaxies—is the most ancient ever discovered, sending radio signals from the early universe

By Becky Ferreira

Scientists have discovered the oldest and most distant “blazar,” a supermassive black hole that spews out mind-boggling amounts of light, at the edge of space and time. The object is nearly 13 billion years old, but scientists were able to detect it because it is so “radio-loud,” meaning it is incredibly luminous even from afar.

A team led by Silvia Belladitta, a graduate student at the University of Insubria in Italy, announced the discovery of the blazar on Friday in the journal Astronomy & Astrophysics. Named PSO J030947.49+271757.3 (or PSO J0309+27 for short), it is the first known blazar at such a high “redshift,” which is a scale that measures the distance of luminous objects based on the distorted color of their light.

Blazars are a special class of active galactic nuclei (AGN), which are galactic centers defined by supermassive black holes that feed on large volumes of infalling gas, dust, and stars. As this material falls into the black hole, it becomes extremely hot and energetic, sparking the release of luminous jets of matter and radiation that travel close to the speed of light. This transformation into an AGN can create explosive beams that are forcefulenough to punch holes clear through galaxy clusters.

What separates blazars from regular AGN is their orientation toward Earth: In order to be considered a blazar, the jets from these objects have to be pointed directly at us. As a result, they are among the brightest objects in the sky, and can be used to estimate the overall population of similarly radiant AGN.

“Observing a blazar is extremely important,” said Belladitta in a statement. “For every discovered source of this type, we know that there must be 100 similar, but most are oriented differently, and are therefore too weak to be seen directly.”

Belladitta and her colleagues were able to spot PSO J0309+27 by combining data from several different observatories. First, the team examined bright radio sources captured by the NRAO’s Very Large Array (VLA) in New Mexico, the Panoramic Survey Telescope and Rapid Response System in Hawaii (Pan-STARRS), and a space telescope called the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE).

Those results revealed the existence of PSO J0309+27, but it took measurements by the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT) in Arizona to confirm that this object is by far the most distant and ancient blazar ever observed. Further examination of its emissions, sourced from NASA’s Swift space telescope, showed that it is also “the most powerful radio-loud AGN ever discovered” at this distance, according to the study.

“The spectrum that appeared before our eyes confirmed first that PSO J0309+27 is actually an AGN,” Belladitta explained. “In addition, the data obtained by LBT also confirmed that PSO J0309+27 is really far away from us, according to the shift of the color of its light toward red or redshift with a record value of 6.1, never measured before for a similar object.”

The combined observations enabled the team to estimate that the supermassive black hole at the heart of PSO J0309+27 is about a billion times more massive than the Sun. By comparison, the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way is puny, at only four million times the mass of the Sun.

The discovery of PSO J0309+27 sheds literal light on the origins of supermassive black holes, which are now abundant throughout the universe and influential to its evolution. “Thanks to our discovery, we are able to say that in the first billion years of life of the universe, there existed a large number of very massive black holes emitting powerful relativistic jets,” Belladitta said.

“This result places tight constraints on the theoretical models that try to explain the origin of these huge black holes in our universe,” she added.

What’s more, the team predicted that other ancient blazars are likely to be discovered as a hyper-sensitive generation of telescopes comes online in the coming years, especially the Vera C. Rubin Observatory in Chile. These facilities will put the distant universe into sharper focus, enabling unprecedented insights about how we ended up with our modern cosmic surroundings.

conscious-being-in-prayer-optiBy Jaime Tanna

People are worried that with an ever increasing population we won’t have enough land to live on… that we won’t have enough food, or clean, drinkable water in the very near future… Yet, this is truly a matter of consciousness! 7 billion conscious, awake human beings would create a VERY different world to the state of our world today.

With conscious behaviours, we could certainly have 20 billion people and life would flourish! Yet, the sad fact is that the earth is dying with just 7 billion people, and we are all suffering, because of our own ignorance (darkness).

We have allowed our governments and mega corporations to make mock of us. They feed us death, and call it life. By continually bowing to the tremendous power of the rich elite — who run mega corporations that promote truly selfish agendas — our politicians and other authority figures are guilty of putting profits before people and we are seeing the dire consequences reflected back to us in practically every area of life as we know it. Human, land and animal life has never suffered more!

Chemtrails, pesticides, harmful GM foods (marketed as safe, and the “solution” to world hunger), tortured farm animals filled with all kinds of antibiotics and bred as fast as possible to feed the ever-growing & virtually insatiable demand for (poor quality)meat/junk food, fracking, mass deforestation to “create” land for breeding such meat, unsafe, ineffective pharmaceutical drugs pushed to market with misleading information (the vast majority of of Pharma drugs cause chronic, debilitating illnesses whilst treating only the symptoms of a patient’s disease), suppression of at least one known natural remedy (which has the power to heal many debilitating illnesses of the body including Cancer!), making it illegal to even grow in one’s home/backyard, are all pointers to a marked dysfunction of human consciousness.

It’s not that we don’t have the ability to heal our world, it’s just that we lack the collective willpower.

Our blindness is self-caused, however.

Most people refuse to even look… and if they do care to see it, they quickly say to themselves, or others, “It’s not MY problem… what can I do?”

Children and adults continuously engage in “entertainment”, often where horrific violence is accepted as ‘normal’, just to avoid the pain of facing their pain…

We drink copious amounts of alcohol and fall into a hypnotic slumber, ingesting all those wonderful advertising messages about which new product we must have!

We read about the massacre of children and adults in different countries on the front page of the newspapers — it’s okay though because some of them are really terrorists… the mainstream media says so! — and then quickly flick to the Sport section to see if “our team” won last night, and which player got that multi-million dollar contract!

Back to work, gotta pay those bills… no time to worry about the world’s troubles! Really, what can we do?!

So, who will heal our world?

Surely we cannot leave it up to the politicians who betray our trust every day…

Surely we cannot leave it up to the corporations whose only motive is the profit of the shareholders.

Surely, we cannot leave it up to the priests or pundits either…

People go to their church, or mosque or temple to be “absolved” but the guilt lingers on…. they stuff their pain with junk food, alcohol, violence and worse…

We must remember who we are, and stop living a half life! We must forgive ourselves and then take whatever small action steps we can, from a place of clear perception, and love… Love for ourselves and this planet.

Act locally, think globally.  Let this be your intention, and your ‘default program’.

You may be overwhelmed when you think of how to help the whole world, but you cannot be overwhelmed by helping your own community. By being willing to lend a hand, and to speak up when the truth is distorted or twisted to suit agendas that do not benefit the whole, you will play a great part in shifting the balance of power. For truly, we cannot know how our actions will empower others…

One woman refusing to give up her seat on a bus, changed the political landscape of America and empowered millions!

One man refusing to engage his enemy in violent confrontation changed the course of a country.

It is now up to all of us to change our world. We must choose to stand up against the corruption, and misinformation being spread by those in power at virtually every level.

Those currently in power are drunk from it – and benefit from keeping us drugged, physically and mentally, because it is only if they keep us in this dark, unconscious state that we will continue to fail to act.

But is is not too late!  We have a small window of opportunity to reverse the tide! If we can simply learn to trust our intuitive sense again about right and wrong, we will stop believing the propaganda that disempowers us. We won’t simply believe authority figures, particularly if we see they have vested interests in a particular outcome!

For example, if we admit children are at risk of being harmed from the current vaccines, then we will stop and ask what is being put in those “medicines”. We may not throw out all vaccines, but our dominant focus would be the safety of those coming into the world, not simply following fear-based laws that take away basic human rights.

We must raise our consciousness, and stop ingesting falsehoods. We must go inwards to connect with the deeper source of wisdom within, and then use our minds to critically assess situations with empathy and insight.

The world is still in darkness. And it is in danger. This much we can admit if we are fully present to what is going on around us. Many brave souls are speaking up, but they are in the minority. Mainstream media spins its devious tales, dancing to the tune of the power-brokers who lurk in the shadows of human consciousness. Watch and observe. They move swiftly to placate our increasing concerns and leak misinformation to distract us from the truth! But we will only buy it if we are asleep!

We need to be alert, vigilant to the dangers facing us and ready to take a stand whenever we can.  It starts with us – and it starts by changing our own behaviours first.

Will you be one of those to help switch on the light?  Will you heed the clarion call?

meditation-3338549_1280IN BRIEF

  • The Facts:Below, you will find 8 paths as described in the second book (out of four) of the Yoga Sutras, written by the Indian sage Patanjali about two thousand years ago.
  • Reflect On:The practice of yoga involves much more than the physical aspect of what many people do today.

Yoga is something that continues to gain a tremendous amount of popularity throughout the world as we move through 2015 and beyond. It’s not a religion, and it is used and practiced by theists, atheists, and everyone in between. There are two major components of yoga that are now being practiced in the West today: physical fitness through stretching (asana), and mental fitness through the practice of meditation (dhyana).

Many in the West do not know that for thousands of years, the true nature of yoga was to achieve states of insightfulness that helped to reveal the true nature of Reality, “before personal biases and cultural expectations have a chance to distort our perceptions.” (1)

Yoga predates Hinduism by centuries, possibly millennia, and is closely associated with Jainism and Buddhism. Its origins can be traced back three to five thousand years ago.

Below, you will find 8 paths as described in the second book (out of four) of the Yoga Sutras, written by the Indian sage Patanjali about two thousand years ago. I thought it would be useful to share, as reflecting on these teachings, for some people, can really improve mental states and life in general.

“The second book of the Yoga Sutras describes the practice of yoga. The goal of practice is to break out of the destructive habits that distract the mind and in turn create suffering. Patanjali describes a method known as ashtanga, or the eightfold path.” Dean Radin, PhD., Chief Scientist At The Institute of Noetic Sciences (1)

Here they are:

Path 1 is Yama: Restraining from harmful behaviour, or cautions on what behaviour to avoid. This includes violence, injury, telling falsehoods, stealing, lasciviousness, greed, and in general adopting ethical and virtuous behaviour.

Path 2 is Niyama: Developing beneficial behaviour, or guidelines on what behaviours to encourage. This includes cleanliness and austerity, along with cultivating an attitude of gratitude and contentment, and being engaged in a disciplined practice of focus, devotion, and self-study.

Path 3 is Asana: Developing of physical postures. These are designed to assist the mind and body in relaxing, through development of strength, steadiness, and flexibility. The purpose of the asanas is to prepare the body to comfortably withstand the rigors of long-term meditation.

Path 4 is Pranayama: Conscious breathing techniques. These further the mind’s ability to focus, and they energize the body.

Path 5 is Pratyhara: Withdrawing from ordinary sensory perceptions and limiting focus to a single object of attention. Restricting one’s attention frees the mind to concentrate on internal objects of attention, fostering even more tranquility of mind.

Path 6 is Dharana: Developing a steady, sustained concentration. The root word for dhri in dharana means “to hold”; one holds attention on a single object of thought. This type of concentration is similar to that experienced during highly focused intellectual work.

Path 7 is Dhyana: Developing prolonged levels of concentration on an object, with deeper absorption and greater sustained alertness. This is sometimes referred to as meditation.

Path 8 is Samadhi: Unity or mystical absorption with an object of attention. In this state, distinctions between subject and object dissolve and one “becomes” the object of meditation. This awareness is frequently described as ecstatic. That is, it is a super-aware state accompanied by intense, nonsensual pleasure.

https---blogs-images.forbes.com-brucekasanoff-files-2017-02-intuition-intelligenceBy Bruce Kasanoff

Intuition, argues Gerd Gigerenzer, a director at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, is less about suddenly “knowing” the right answer and more about instinctively understanding what information is unimportant and can thus be discarded.

Gigerenzer, author of the book Gut Feelings: The Intelligence of the Unconscious, says that he is both intuitive and rational. “In my scientific work, I have hunches. I can’t explain always why I think a certain path is the right way, but I need to trust it and go ahead. I also have the ability to check these hunches and find out what they are about. That’s the science part. Now, in private life, I rely on instinct. For instance, when I first met my wife, I didn’t do computations. Nor did she.”

I’m telling you this because recently one of my readers, Joy Boleda, posed a question that stopped me in my tracks:

What about intuition? It has never been titled as a form of intelligence, but would you think that someone who has great intuition in things, has more intelligence?

My “gut instinct” is to say yes, especially when we are talking about people who are already intellectually curious, rigorous in their pursuit of knowledge, and willing to challenge their own assumptions.

Let me put this a bit simpler. If all you do is sit in a chair and trust your intuition, you are not exercising much intelligence. But if you take a deep dive into a subject and study numerous possibilities, you are exercising intelligence when your gut instinct tells you what is – and isn’t – important.

In some respects, intuition could be thought of as a clear understanding of collective intelligence. For example, most web sites are today organized in an intuitive way, which means they are easy for most people to understand and navigate. This approach evolved after many years of chaos online, as a common wisdom emerged over what information was superfluous and what was essential (i.e. About Us = essential).

Theo Humphries argues that intuitive design can be described as “understandable without the use of instructions”. This is true when an object makes sense to most people because they share a common understanding of the way things work.

You might say that I’m a believer in the power of disciplined intuition. Do your legwork, use your brain, share logical arguments, and I’ll trust and respect your intuitive powers. But if you merely sit in your hammock and ask me to trust your intuition, I’ll quickly be out the door without saying goodbye.

I say this from personal experience; the more research I do, the better my intuition works.

Although this may be a paraphrase of his thoughts on the subject, Albert Einstein has been widely quoted as saying, “The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.”

Sometimes, a corporate mandate or group-think or your desire to produce a certain outcome can cause your rational mind to go in the wrong direction. At times like these, it is intuition that holds the power to save you. That “bad feeling” gnawing away at you is your intuition telling you that no matter how badly you might wish to talk yourself into this direction, it is the wrong way to go.

Smart people listen to those feelings. And the smartest people among us – the ones who make great intellectual leaps forward – cannot do this without harnessing the power of intuition.
