The Evolutionary Purpose of the Ego

The Evolutionary Purpose of the Ego

We live here on this Earth, in the world of individual “Selves”. We dwell in the empire of seven billion separate and isolated Egos, and in the domain of the Ego we tend to forget about the Miracle of Consciousness. The Ego only pursues its own dreams and ambitions, and so it very often embitters our life.

We must face reality: there is a tyrannic “small ego” in everybody’s head, and this small ego keeps grumbling and complaining all the time. It is a dissatisfied, possessive ego that often makes our life a misery. It is for certain that this small ego – or, more precisely, what we believe is our Self, our Ego – coiled up tightly in the back of our mind, is responsible for a tremendous amount of senseless and unnecessary suffering and destruction in the history of mankind.

New Moon in Leo: Moving With the Universal Flow

New Moon in Leo: Moving With the Universal Flow

An incredible turning point is unfolding for the collective consciousness right now. The nature of our existence on the planet is dramatically changing for us all, on a number of different levels, and these changes are calling us to reshape the very nature of how we will individually and collectively experience this great cosmic play.

Are you ready to embrace these changes and courageously walk the unique new direction we are embarking on?

Astrologically, there are two very powerful themes flowing through our energy field and reshaping the way we experience our humanity right now. First, the alignment of Saturn in Sagittarius, Neptune in Pisces and Mercury in Virgo is bringing about a sense of crisis and chaos for those of us trying to hold onto the ideals and securities of our past. Second, powered by the recent cycle of the Moon and Sun through the sign of Cancer, we have recently been offered an energetic opportunity to develop the self-trust and inner security we need to confidently follow our new path.

So now, with today’s New Moon in Leo, the question becomes: Where are you in this new story?

A Saltwater Powered Sports Car? It’s True — and Europe Just Made it Street Legal

A Saltwater Powered Sports Car? It’s True — and Europe Just Made it Street Legal

2nd July 2016

Not so long ago, excitement rose to a fevered pitch with the announcement of a budget Tesla car slated to hit the streets in 2017. The cars are gorgeous, seemingly easy on the environment and in a price range the average Joe can afford. But over the last few years, there have been disgruntled murmurings about how electric vehicles aren’t that environmentally sound. Some feel they can actually be worse for the planet than combustion engines, since they often rely on conventional electricity sources to recharge. So while the idea is appealing in theory, the reality isn’t so rosy when we look at their actual impact. The same can be said for other technologies like hydrogen fuel cell and hybrid cars.

There is one advancement, however, that could be a genuine game changer in the realm of eco-friendly cars: saltwater powered vehicles.

The Price We Pay for Fighting Pests With Chemicals and Genetic Engineering

The Price We Pay for Fighting Pests With Chemicals and Genetic Engineering

By Dr. Joseph Mercola

As noted in a recent article by The Atlantic,[1] history is rife with pest control experiments gone terribly wrong. Today the stakes are higher than ever, as scientists are increasingly turning to genetic engineering to affect environmental change.

Earlier this year, the Zika virus, which is carried by the Aedes aegypti mosquito, was declared a worldwide public health threat.[2],[3] Besides calling for increased use of chemical sprays against mosquitoes, focus quickly turned to the idea of releasing genetically engineered (GE) mosquitoes to control populations.

The male transgenic mosquitoes, which are released to mate with females in the wild, carry a “suicide” or “self-destruct gene” that gets transferred to the offspring, killing them before they reach breeding maturity.[4] To achieve this, protein fragments from the herpes virus, E. coli bacteria, coral and cabbage looper moth were inserted into the insects. Biotech company Oxitec refers to their GE mosquitoes as a “non-chemical insecticide,” and these controversial creatures are now another step closer to being released on U.S. soil.

The Top 20 GMO Foods and Ingredients to Avoid – and Why

The Top 20 GMO Foods and Ingredients to Avoid – and Why

31st July 2016

By Dr. Edward Group

Guest writer for Wake Up World

In the very short time since GMO foods were first introduced, they have tainted ecosystems, created financial strains for farmers, and introduced unnatural elements into the local, national, and global food supply.

GMOs pose a danger to all of us and the evidence is irrefutable. Environmentally, they have created superweeds that destroy farmland, and they have eliminated some organisms from ecosystems, leading to new superbugs to fill the void. Much talk also centers around the health considerations. Unfortunately, researchers who attempt to test the alleged safety of these GMOs – and have found them decidedly unsafe! – get shouted down by the rank-and-file industry yes men who are intent on protecting the empire. Despite this, the research has shown a dramatically higher risk of health problems from eating GMOs and research shown that toxic DNA from these plants may survive digestion. It’s even been found in the blood of pregnant women and their fetuses! [1]

How Words Rewire Our Brains, For Better or Worse

How Words Rewire Our Brains, For Better or Worse

“Just seeing a list of negative words for a few seconds will make a highly anxious or depressed person feel worse, and the more you ruminate on them, the more you can actually damage key structures that regulate your memory, feelings, and emotions. You’ll disrupt your sleep, your appetite, and your ability to experience long-term happiness and satisfaction.” ~ Andrew Newberg, M.D. and Mark Waldman

If you’ve ever been on the receiving end of a harsh, angry word, you are well acquainted with the racing heart and rise in blood pressure due to the fight-or-flight stress response. On the opposite end of the spectrum, kind, loving and gentle words have a calming, spacious effect. Both scenario’s tend to be familiar ground in our day-to-day interactions. What we may not realize, however, is how words restructure the physical composition of our brains in an ongoing process. And it’s not just spoken words — the same is true for those that are in written form or thoughts of particular words. As it turns out, words hold incredible power — and can determine our level of happiness, health and success in both business and relationships.

Are Psychic Readings a Diagnosis for Disaster?

Are Psychic Readings a Diagnosis for Disaster?

30th July 2016

By Nanice Ellis

Contributing writer for Wake Up World

Visiting a psychic can be a fun and exciting experience, but if you are not fully conscious, it can also be a very dangerous game, and, in fact, psychic predictions can be a formula for disaster.

Firstly, your future is not set in stone – before you lies an infinite number of possible paths, and with each turn “left or right,” and each choice “this or that,” your probable future shifts and morphs accordingly, and since your future is always changing courses, there is no possible way for anyone to accurately predict the journey or the destination. In addition, how you feel at the time of the reading influences the results, so having a headache or being worried about a deadline can impact the reading, and, of course, even the psychic’s own filters and issues can influence the outcome.

The Metabolic Model of Cancer: How Nutrition and Diet Influences Cancer

The Metabolic Model of Cancer: How Nutrition and Diet Influences Cancer

Is it possible that chromosomal damage is simply a marker for cancer and not the actual cause of the disease? Compelling evidence suggests this is the case, and in the featured lecture, orthopedic surgeon Dr. Gary Fettke reviews some of this evidence.

Having battled cancer himself, Fettke came to realize the influence of nutrition on cancer, and the importance of eating a diet high in healthy fats and low in net carbohydrates (total carbs minus fiber, i.e. non-fiber carbs). Fettke is not the only one promoting the metabolic model of cancer.

Earlier this year I interviewed Travis Christofferson, author of a phenomenal book on this topic, called “Tripping Over the Truth: The Return of the Metabolic Theory of Cancer Illuminates a New and Hopeful Path to a Cure“.

How a City in Denmark is Fighting Terrorism With an Unconventional Strategy — and Winning

How a City in Denmark is Fighting Terrorism With an Unconventional Strategy — and Winning

“Every minute, I just imagine him in that solitary confinement, facing 20 years, because I cooperated with the government. It’s a horrible feeling. I can’t get rid of it,” said Sal Shafi, father of Adam, a 22-year-old American suspected of Islamic extremism.

Last year Mr. Shafi phoned the American embassy in Cairo, Egypt while visiting family because Adam had disappeared and flown to Turkey, apparently to witness the plight of the refugees there. After the family’s return to the United States, Mr. Shafi was contacted by the FBI. Against the advice of his attorney, he answered their questions on several occasions. “We don’t have criminal minds,” Mr. Shafi told the New York Times. “Maybe I’m naïve. I’ve never dealt with the authorities before. I wanted to cooperate.” Shortly thereafter, agents showed up in the early morning hours with guns drawn, looking for Adam. Arrest and prison time is the only option in America for suspected radicalized individuals. If Mr. Shafi had known how the situation was to play out with his son, he would have chosen a different path to help Adam. As it stands, he warns “Don’t even think about going to the government.”

Do you feel sometimes like you’ve been betrayed, abandoned and cast adrift on the ocean of life? It’s like nothing seems to add up, life doesn’t always flow like it really should, and there are ‘shadows’ everywhere who seem to make it their purpose to slow you down.

Don’t worry, even though sometimes you may feel alone and cut-off from the wider universe you know as home, you are not powerless — you have gifts beyond measure, and as long as you let the flow speak through you, it will find a way to connect you back up to the source. If you let the fullness of you express, it doesn’t matter what odds are ranged against you, you’ll overcome any obstacle and challenge they throw in your way…
