Navigating The Information War with Emotional Intelligence

16th April 2016

By Bernhard Guenther

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Many of us do our best to speak out about the atrocities, injustices, oppressions, environmental issues, and corruption in our world. That is certainly needed, and shouldn’t be ignored. However, I’ve also seen more and more that many “truth seekers” and activists tend to focus only on these issues and get stuck on “fighting the system” on a 3D level. Many renegades who bring the darkness to light in our world – researchers and people in the alternative media realm – also fight each other over relatively minor points of disagreement, which quickly devolve and shift into personal attacks. Be it on social media, message boards, or YouTube comments, with people hiding behind their screens, they behave in ways they would probably never do when interacting in person. Such is the price of living in the Internet Age.

However, if we recognize that shadow aspect in ourselves, without rationalizing it away by finding fault in others – and thus, take accountability for the way we communicate at all times – we can show more humility and have more compassion for others and ourselves, and focus on the information itself so that we can get at the truth together.

Being Enough

14th April 2016

By Jack Adam Weber

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

The feeling that we are not enough is often a throwback to childhood. No matter how much we tell ourselves that we are enough, it is not going change much how we feel about ourselves as adults. The cure to this bedeviling feeling is to go back and do the healing work from childhood, for the love we did not get. This was the unconditional acceptance of our beingness into the world nourished by the grounded forces of caring, respect, and honor that allowed to us to feel whole, and enough.

As adults, we carry our childhood inside us. Yet, many confuse insufficient feelings from childhood with the adult experience of being enough, as if to be enough as an adult is not to have to show up for anything and just be, or at least not have to show up more than we did as children. As adults, we are rewarded and recognized more for what we contribute to others and to the world, for our responsibility and generosity to the whole. In other words, as adults the bulk of our worth and enoughness is not just for being alive, but for what we contribute to others, for giving.

The Amazingly Simple and Cost-Effective Way to End Homelessness — for Good

13th April 2016

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

During a balmy 60ºF December morning, Rene Zepeda is driving a Volunteers of America minivan through Salt Lake City, Utah, looking for the homeless who may be camping by the railroad tracks or over by the river, sometimes in the foothills. Cold weather is on its way, so the van is packed with sleeping bags, thermal clothing, coats, sock, boots, hats, protein bars, nutrition drinks and canned goods. According to Rene, once the day is finished, everything will be gone. “I want to get them into homes,” he says. “I tell them, ‘I’m working for you. I want to get you out of the homeless situation.’”

Rene works for a program called Housing First. It has decreased the number of homeless by an extraordinary 72% — mainly by providing permanent free housing. Critics bemoan the expense, but once the numbers were thoroughly crunched, it was discovered the program actually costs the state far less than if people were left on the street. Moreover, in a nation where a large proportion of the homeless population are military veterans, adopting such a program is not only a social or financial imperative but a moral one.

Earth: This Is Our Realm

13th April 2016

By Zen Gardner

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Contrary to what we’re being told, that we’re a curse on this planet, we’re supposed to be here. This is our current and very real realm of existence, here on this planet. Our home. This is an important point to remember.

Many feel helpless, especially in times of confusion and spiritual distress, but they needn’t be. This is rightfully our world to peacefully dwell in, no matter what physical, spiritual or dimensional energies assail us. This is something to take great comfort in, but it does require awareness and vigilance.

Plastic Waste in the Ocean Will Outnumber Fish by 2050

11th April 2016

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

A dump truck full of plastic is unloaded into the sea every minute, and experts say the situation is growing worse, with plastic debris expected to outnumber fish by 2050.

With plastic production currently at a twentyfold increase since 1964, generating 311m tonnes in 2014, a new report by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation has revealed we are rapidly approaching an environmental catastrophe — especially where the world’s oceans are concerned. This number is expected to double in the next 20 years and almost quadruple by 2050.

New plastics will use 20% of all oil within 35 years, which stands at around 7% today. And, despite the increasing demand, a mere 5% of all plastics are recycled successfully — with 40% ending up in landfills and a third in delicate ecosystems like the ocean. The remainder tends to be burned to generate energy, which has its own environmental impact not only in the pollution this practice generates, but also because it causes more fossil fuels to be used in order to make new plastic products like bags, cups, tubs and consumer devices.

Addictive Behavior Related to Low Levels of Oxytocin, the “Love/Bonding Hormone”

9th April 2016

By Christina Lavers

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

The more we understand how nature works, the more we realize just how complex, intricately balanced and ingenious its systems are. One aspect that we are currently gaining more insight into is the human body’s ability to produce natural chemicals and their effects on our general wellbeing.

Oxytocin is a hormone secreted by the posterior lobe of the pituitary gland, a pea-sized structure located at the base of the brain. It is often referred to as a natural love chemical because it is pumped into our bodies when we experience love. It promotes bonding, trust and attachment. It enhances the connection between mother and baby when it is released in high doses during childbirth, and is responsible for the magical seeming way a mother’s breast instantly releases milk at the sight or sound of her infant. It also deepens the sense of union between couples at orgasm.

“Opposition Defiant Disorder” — Non-Conformity and Anti-Authoritarianism Now Considered an Illness

The Brave New World of “Mental Health Disorders”.

If Albert Einstein was a youth today, there’s a good chance he would be saddled with an Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) diagnosis, possibly even Opposition Defiant Disorder (ODD) as well. He ignored his teachers, failed college entrance examinations several times and was hard-pressed in holding down a job.

In Einstein: The Life and Times, biographer Ronald Clark argues that Einstein’s problem wasn’t attention deficits at all, but rather a hatred of authoritarian, Prussian influences in school. “The teachers in the elementary school appeared to me like sergeants and in the gymnasium the teachers were like lieutenants,” Einstein once remarked. The fact that he read Kant’s difficult Critique of Pure Reason for pleasure is quite revealing. He also refused to prepare for college admissions out of rebellion to his father’s “unbearable” path of “practical profession.” When he did gain entrance to college, one of his professors chided Einstein, “You have one fault; one can’t tell you anything.” The very characteristics that troubled authorities, were exactly the ones which helped him to excel.

New Moon in Aries – Giving Life to Our New Inner Reality

7th April 2016

Anchoring Our Inner Reality Into Creation.

Last month’s Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse showed us exactly what direction we are moving in and what action is required of us to make it happen. It offered us the long-awaited clarity we needed to see the structures and ideals we still hold within us that are holding us back, and helped us reconnect with the inner drive to anchor our unique vision into brilliant, sparkling reality.

The major theme for us now, reinforced by today’s New Moon in Aries, is about bringing to life what we know and believe so clearly, and taking active and innovative steps to actively bring the new paradigm to life.

Western Politics: The Pissing Contest of the Impotent Parasites

7th April 2016

By Zen Gardner

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Using the ongoing situation in Syria as an example, this particular incursion of the parasitic western powers, never mind their other psychotic maneuvers, serves as a perfect example of how the so-called ‘powers that be’ are simply pissing in the wind.

It’s ultimately futile. It never succeeds in the tides of time. We just happen to be living in the immediate moment.

That the world can stand by idly watching this ongoing madness is amazing. As if there’s any reason to this insanity. Yet onlookers literally entertain whatever comes at them, being boxed in by their previous and ongoing engineered mental and spiritual allegiances, however subconscious or conscious.

FDA Wants To Make Psychiatric Industry’s Billion Dollar Electroshock Therapy More Widely Available

6th April 2016

By Carolanne Wright

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

“The FDA has initiated a proposal that would reclassify Electroconvulsive Therapy Devices (ECT) from its current category as a high risk device, to a lower risk machine with less regulatory controls. This is despite the federal agency’s admission that the ECT device has not been proven safe and effective.” ~ CCHR Documentaries

The Judge Rotenberg Center (JRC) in Canton, Massachusetts has a long history of controversy for how it handles disabled children and adults. The school has been condemned by the United Nations Special Rapporteurs on Torture, a variety of disability groups, Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick, and an FDA advisory panel.

What is it about the school’s protocol that has attracted such criticism? The answer lies in the way the school handles “unacceptable” behavior — by using frequent electric shocks as punishment. Former teachers at Rotenberg have described how mentally challenged children would writhe on the floor, screaming in pain after receiving the shocks. And yet, the school still has around 200 students, with more referrals in the pipeline. Rotenberg is the only designated school in the United States that uses electric shock for behavioral management.

What If You Did Things Differently Today?

5th April 2016

By Open

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

We’re living in two worlds right now. The one of the old rules, the old systems, the soft synthetic shoulder to park your dreams on. But then there’s another world; one that is forming from the light cracking through the old system. It’s a magical place of infinite possibility. It rejuvenates your soul and breathes you back alive.

But you’ve got to look for it; you’ve got to work for it. The path isn’t easy, it’s a constant conscious choice to find it in every moment, then to open out into it. It’s about challenging previously accepted norms, approaching life differently then you have done before. It’s looking for something new — searching deep for that vibe that brings you alive…
