Luminita D. Saviuc – Negativity is poison – poison for the mind, poison for the Soul, and poison for the body. And it’s crucial for us to learn how to sail away from it.
On a regular basis, we interact with all kind of people – happy people, angry people, people who are frustrated and depressed, people who unhappy with themselves, their lives and everything that happens to them and all around them, people who might be going through some difficult times, etc.
And no matter how positive we might be and no matter how many times per day we might meditate and do our best to remain positive, we might encounter people with very negative energy that will manage to drag us down and to make us feel as drained and as exhausted as they are. And when that happens, you have to find a way to sail away from all that negativity and you have to make sure that you don’t let their negativity become your own.

The next lunar eclipse will be on 31st January 2018 UT in the 12th degree of Leo. Specific information about this eclipse can be found below.
Sarah Varcas – A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon is full and its light is blocked by the earth’s shadow. A full moon is traditionally a time of fruition and harvest, but when eclipsed it heralds, instead, hidden fruits and obscured results. Nothing is quite as it seems. If we think we’ve failed, think again – all is not lost.
If we’re congratulating ourselves on unbridled success, best take a moment to step back and check the details: things may not be as hunky-dory as they first appear and more work may be called for further down the road. A lunar eclipse is a time of mystery and magic, revealing the hidden face of who we are and what we do. It offers a precious opportunity to see more deeply into the consequences of how we live our lives. As such, reflection at this time is best focused on outcomes reaped thus far and any changes we can make to better hone future harvests.
In part, the moon relates to childhood, when we’re at our most vulnerable: dependent on nurturing protection and wise encouragement. A lunar eclipse may therefore bring to the fore memories, thoughts and feelings from early life, illuminating they’re impact upon us. We may want to make a gesture of gratitude towards those who so lovingly cared for us back then. Or we may need to acknowledge hurts inflicted and pain caused – intentionally or otherwise – by those we looked to for succour and support. We may be moved to do both: acknowledge the efforts made by those struggling with their own pain and unable, therefore, to effectively meet our needs. Or it may be necessary to maintain distance from those who shaped our past, knowing it to be vital for our own well-being.

Sean Adl-Tabatabai – Scientists at NASA claim that humans are born with a natural flare for creativity and innate intelligence which eventually gets eroded away once they enter the education system.
At TEDxTuscon, Dr. George Land told his audience about a creativity test he developed for NASA scientists, that allowed them to measure the creative potential of school children.
Ideapod.com reports: The scientists gave the test to 1,600 children between the ages of 4 and 5. What they found shocked them.
This is a test that looks at the ability to come up with new, different and innovative ideas to problems. What percentage of those children do you think fell in the genius category of imagination?
A full 98 percent!

Charles Hugh Smith – We are in a very peculiar point in history. On the one hand, we’re reassured that all is well because Every One of the World’s Big Economies Is Now Growing. (NY Times)
Yet at the same time, we read that “Something Is Very Wrong With The Global Economy”: Richest 1% Made 82% Of Global Wealth In 2017 and are asked, Can the World Survive a Winner-Take-All Global Economy?
Even the authors of the rah-rah NY Times piece on the wonderfulness of the global economy expressed concern that this “growth” may not be distributed any more equally than the previous 10 years of “recovery.”
We already know absolutely nothing will change because neither the inputs nor the feedback loops in the economy have changed. As Donella Meadows explained in her seminal paper Leverage Points: Places to Intervene in a System, the only ways to change a system’s outputs (in this case, widening income and wealth inequality and rising social disorder) is to change the inputs or add a new feedback loop.

Tyler Durden – FBI Director Christopher Wray was allegedly “shocked to his core” after viewing the four-page FISA memo Sunday night – hours before asking Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe to step down, according to journalist Sara Carter.
Hannity sat down once again with journalist Sara Carter, whose sources say McCabe may have instructed FBI agents to alter their “302” forms – the paperwork an agent files after interviewing someone:
Carter: What we know tonight is that FBI Director Christopher Wray went Sunday and reviewed the four-page FISA memo. The very next day, Andrew McCabe was asked to resign. Remember Sean, he was planning on resigning in March – that already came out in December. This time they asked him to go right away. You’re not coming into the office. I’ve heard rep[orts he didn’t even come in for the morning meeting – that he didn’t show up.

Mary O’Malley – I want to explore with you a truth that most human beings don’t want to look at, but something that if you do, will bring untold joy into your life.
There is nothing to hold onto. Everything that begins ends. Every breath has a beginning, a middle and an end. Every sunny day, every thought, every feeling, every great lovemaking, every bite of delicious food will end, and even our planet will one day dissolve back into mystery. Our experience of life is the experience of constant change, and infinite insecurity if we try to hold on.
And yet we all hold on. We resist, we grasp, we manipulate. We are always longing for the ‘good stuff’ to stay and the difficult and uncomfortable to leave. Thus, we live on the surface of life, cut off from our natural essence that is buried underneath the density of our trying to make life be different than what it is. We live tight and small, trying to grasp the illusion of control and safety. Continue reading “Live Fully! Live Truly”
