The review – originally spurred by a Post report in 2012 over flawed forensic testimony by Federal Bureau of Investigation lab technicians that may have led to convictions of hundreds of innocent people – was cut short last August when its findings “troubled the bureau,” according to the Post. The review was ordered by the Justice Department (DOJ) to resume this month, government officials said.

Most of the defendants in cases that involved possibly-botched testimony over microscopic hair matches were never told that their case was part of the review, which includes 2,600 convictions and 45 death-row cases from the 1980s and 1990s. In these cases, the FBI’s hair and fiber unit claimed it found a match to crime-scene samples prior to the age of DNA testing of hair.  Continue reading . . .

John Smallman ~ Fear Freezes, Misdirects, And Confuses

“When Love flows no one is in charge, there is no need because all can see what needs to be done and each does what is required and what her competence enables her to do, and a synergistic and cooperative flow ensues in which all are most effectively engaged. ” Saul

rp_smallman_trees.jpgHere in the spiritual realms – the numerous levels or areas beyond your illusory 3D environment – we are very busy preparing for your awakening and adding the finishing touches to the great celebration that has been prepared to welcome you Home.  And yes of course celebrations have often been talked about in reference to humanity’s awakening, so your interest now is undoubtedly in the actualization of those celebrations, in fact: WHEN!?  We try to suggest time lines bearing in mind that time is of the illusion, but time is what you experience and the seemingly endless waiting is very stressful, tiring, and disappointing for you.

The awakening will happen soon, and in reality it has already happened, because you never went to sleep for more than the briefest instant, but it still seems to you, caught up in the apparent reality of the illusion, that you have been kept interminably waiting for this wondrous event.  And we work hard to help you keep your spirits up while you wait by encouraging you to focus on its inevitability and its imminence.  Deep within you, and for the most part barely accessible to you, you do know that awakening is imminent and inevitable but, as you struggle with daily life and the hope and intense desire to awaken, that waiting can be exhausting, debilitating, and extremely frustrating.  That is why it is so extremely important to visit your inner and sacred sanctuary daily, and remain there until you feel a sense of relief, a strengthening of your faith, the warmth of our love for you, and even a sense of amusement as you consider that when you have awakened, and the illusion is gone, you will be absolutely overflowing with delight and merriment.

Julian Rose ~ Seizing Control Of Our Destinies

“We who have become ‘aware’ – are the leaders of the age. We must live up to this reality. We know that the status quo is beyond redemption. So we must take this knowledge to be the signal to build that which will redeem our collective Human status; which will carry us through the apocalypse.” J Rose

MiddleAgesEngland

In 1381, at a time of great repression for the British agricultural work force,an extraordinary people’s revolutionary named Wat Tyler sprang to his feet and announced “England should be a nation of self governing communities” to which he added “ No lord shall exercise lordship over the people, and, as we are oppressed by so vast a hoard of bishops and clerks, the property of the holy church should be taken and divided.”

His colleague, the priest John Ball, spoke out with equal fervour “The lords’ claims to be more lords than we are rests solely on their power to force us to labour that they may spend.”

A great surge of support for these proclamations swept through the farming communities of South East England, quickly spreading further North. The farmers took up arms – whatever appropriate implements they could find in the farmyard – and set out on their mission to free themselves from the wicked landlords and clerks, who between them were taxing the life out of the farming communities throughout the land, destroying the livelyhoods of thousands of countryside families.

Many a pernicious bureaucrat was confronted by this motley army, with the brave farmer, Wat Tyler, proudly riding at it’s head – and many a selfish landlord was forced to concede his greedy rental regime and bow to the demands of the British peasants.

And yes, blood was shed in the struggle to gain respect for basic human rights.

A great quest for liberation, justice and equality blazed amongst the downtrodden land-workers and villagers of fourteenth century England during those famous months of The Peasant’s Revolt. Only an act of royal treachery finally stopped this revolution from fully undermining the corrupted power of the State and the intransigence of King Richard II.

Why do I tell this story?

Because more than six hundred years after this peasant uprising shook the nation, we have come full circle. Once again the call is going out for peoples and regions under the hand of oppressive, dictatorial regimes, to cecede from the nation state and become ‘self governing communities’. Wat Tyler’s heroic stand echoes down the ages and nourishes the cause of non-compliance and community actions that stand up against the ever more insidious tentacles of centralised power.

Right now there are one hundred and fifty communities in the United States redefining their right to self govern and pushing forward their programmes for localised renewable energy and ecological food security. Not only this, they are also rewriting the laws that govern their communities and declaring citizens’ charters – banning GMO’s and initiating local seed saving actions. They are also declaring the right to clean water and are making ‘fracking’ a criminal offence.

In the process, through collective acts of civil disobedience, they are stripping the corporate world of its powers. These communities are able to show how the notion that corporations have some form of sovereign power – is a facade – how it is people who hold sovereign power, as Wat Tyler made plain all those years ago. And it is people who must again exercise that power.

All over the World such stirrings are gaining momentum. Actions to reclaim powers usurped by that toxic cocktail of government and corporate collusion, are breaking out. If such stands are being taken in the US heartlands of corporate and government connivance – then it proves that the will of the people is more powerful than the will of the heirarchical cabal whose ambition it is to control all aspects of our lives. We should draw strong inspiration from these game changing actions – and increase our own determination to go in the same direction.

The time has come for all awakening individuals to hone a definite life strategy.  A strategy that puts us in the driver’s seat and empowers us to set a new course – one imbued with creative inventiveness, courage and mutual support.

We have arrived here because of the accumulated evidence which overwhelmingly proves that the status quo is a fraud – designed to strip us of our powers of judgement and the determination to act on that judgement. There is no time for further deliberation of the pros and cons of this or that political polemic. It’s all a miasma. A massive sham. A sham which we continue to uphold as long as we go on playing along with its sense of self importance; giving it a status it does not actually possess, and then sheltering under its poisoned wing.

Everyday that goes by without putting into place a strategy to step out of this straight-jacket – is a day wasted – a sacrificial offering to to all that is sucking the life out of humanity.

Self government starts by taking control of the self. By shaking off the doubts about one’s capabilities and taking specific steps to enhance one’s powers: spiritually, mentally and physically. We need to be aware that there is no predestined design for this life that will fatalistically play itself out while we bury our heads in the sand.

Yet we are indoctrinated to believe that there is some kind of inevitability to the way the world lurches from crisis to crisis, war to war. That suits the cabal very well – because it is their war game that is being enacted on planet Earth – and the more people that see that war game as somehow ‘inevitable’ – the longer will it go on desecrating the fabric of life.

Just now, many are falling into the trap of declaring that we are inevitably heading for a Third World War. But in so doing they are merely fulfilling the ambitions of those craven agents of death whose game design includes that scenario. Our role is not to prophecy, but to change the goal posts so as to ensure that such horrors never take place. That is the meaning of ‘seizing control of our destiny’.

If, in spite of our efforts, such a war breaks out, it is simply because there is insufficient energy focussed on the true path of life. Insufficient self discipline to steer against the tide of doom. But every person who gives in to a sense of doom when confronted by the machinations of the war machine has failed to grasp the powers with which they are endowed. Powers to change themselves as well as the assumed course of events. Forging a path of truth where presently are deserts of desolation.

Wat Tyler, and his gallant peasant followers, did not stand back and allow repression to rule. Nor should we. He proclaimed that no heirarchical figure should rule over and repress the people. So should we. He called instead for England to become a nation of self governing communities. So should we – in whatever Country we reside.

Because this is surely the only practical antidote to the super centralisation of our lives and absolute rule by the despotic fiefdoms of the 21st century.

Self governing communities turn out to be our most instinctual socio economic model of survival and create the right setting for a fertile organic expansion of the spiritual and artistic path. Because to be ‘spiritually aware’ ‘self governing’ and a ‘caring community’ is fundamental to the growth of responsible and cohesive shared living.

Everything else that poses as a solution is already shot full of holes.

Humanity is an extended family. But as in the present tragedy which is Jew-v-Arab, Israel-v-Palestine, this truth has been riven with lies and ripped apart by ulterior motives. Modern ‘democracies’ are are now simply a perpetually repeating expression of this divide and conquer holocast. It is impossible to become awake and then continue to put both feet back into such a deeply compromised and incongruous system as we have today. Therefore we must change the script.

Everyone who follows my writings and the parallel concerns of others who contribute to this site, should already be concentrating themselves on the process of building – or contributing to the building of – self governing communities. Increasingly freed from dependence on the fallen model.

As the foundations of the status quo continue to crack apart, so do the seemingly reliable sources of life dependencies to which we are accustomed also go with them. There is no more time to sit on fences. They are themselves rotting away underneath us and will soon turn to dust.

We who have become ‘aware’ – are the leaders of the age. We must live up to this reality. We know that the status quo is beyond redemption. So we must take this knowledge to be the signal to build that which will redeem our collective Human status; which will carry us through the apocalypse. We know what the ingredients are that will make our arks self sustaining. We know what we need in order to come alive again. Now we must put them all together – for that is where they belong.

If we are to overcome that which oppresses us we must unite our creative powers and imaginations in common affirmation of the life force with which we are each endowed.

The quest for liberation, justice and basic equality so nobly fought for by Wat Tyler and the peasant’s revolt six hundred year’s ago is now our revolution.

Ethan A. Huff ~ Huffpost: GMOs Have Never Been Proven Safe

“If questioning the prevailing GMO dogma is merely an attempted subversion tactic by those who hate science, then why have nearly 300 scientists from around the world signed onto a joint statement agreeing that GMOs have never been proven safe?” E A Huff

gmo_wakeupNaturalNews ~  Proponents of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) often proclaim that the technology has been fully vetted in terms of human safety, and that anyone objecting to the continued unlabeled use of GMOs in the food supply is somehow dredging up unfounded conspiracy theories. But the truth of the matter is that GMOs have never been proven safe in humans, as no long-term safety studies involving humans have ever taken place.

The biotechnology industry rarely divulges this fact, instead flooding media reports with pejorative attacks on anyone who questions official GMO dogma. GMOs are completely safe, claims the industry, because our science says so. Never mind that short-term corporate studies involving only animals constitute the vast majority of what is held up as solid evidence that GMOs are safe for humans to eat — if you question GMO safety, you are anti-science, the industry purports.

Except this position is no longer generally accepted as valid, as evidenced by the many hundreds of scientists around the world who have signed onto a joint statement condemning current GMO policy as “irresponsible.” Registered dietitian Carole Bartolotto also agrees, discussing the problems with GMO science in a recent piece for Huffington Post.

Andrew Martin ~ One Of The Most Significant Pieces Of The Sustainability Puzzle

“The key to sustainability is awareness and simplicity.” A Martin

A Gradual Awakening

“When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.” – John Muir

Having spent many years working in the business world, being seduced by the gods of progress, I experienced a gradual awakening that reshaped the way that I saw the world. I began to realise that what I had been taught at university and other tertiary institutions just did not stack up. It became blindingly clear that the current economic model with its fixation on growth was highly unsustainable and detrimental to our society and environment.

Our entire financial, economic and social systems are hinged on the premise that markets will continue to grow. This concept itself is unsustainable as we live in a finite physical world. Yet every business listed on the stock market is dependant on continuous growth. My question was simple. How can economies continue to grow indefinitely? The answer. They cannot. After years of research and questioning it became obvious that we are on the verge of a quantum shift. Our society, economies and way of thinking will have to radically change if we have any chance of surviving as a species. We need a collective evolution and we need everyone to work together to make it happen.

Spirit Science 23 ~ The Sacred Geometry Movie [Video]

Jordan Pearce ~ Ever since I was struck with the realization that all things were connected, Sacred Geometry has been a gateway to a new awareness of the world in my life. The door to the 3rd eye, which only makes sense as the pineal gland is the lens for awareness of geometry and patterns in our physical bodies.

I’ve also seen a lot of people who have said they really get a lot out of the sacred geometry Spirit Science episodes… and so I thought we’d put together something special for you.

WHITE PEACOCK - BY BHAIRAVI'S REQUEST

WHITE PEACOCK – BY BHAIRAVI’S REQUEST

Crescent Moon in Virgo: challenges ~Ruling Mahavidya: Bhairavi (Goddess Who Fortifies the Heart)

Skill: answer the call of your heart

Negative Imprint: arousing to negative action; false fronts; deliberately upsetting others or causing pain

Positive Imprint: arousing to positive action; equality; interconnection; celebrations

Chiron’s themes of wounding, healing, and teaching are strong today with the Moon opposing Chiron and Mars in opposition with the Chiron Point. This wave serves to push any lingering pain out of our hearts so that our heart’s desire shines through.

Hungry hearts result also. We have an inner drive to satisfy something, possibly something that is developing as an overwhelming need. When we are healing, we eventually become hungry. It’s a good sign. So the mission today is to answer the call of your heart. The Wisdom Goddess (Mahavidya) Bhairavi is working hard to bring burning passions to life. She sparks all kinds of things to creation.

Challenges to the status quo/standard order of things arise today. This energy has deeply imprinted political tones and tones that are used to call things to action. It arouses things. Things also spread very quickly, so take care with what you say. Of course, this means GOOD things can spread quickly, too! Continue reading
