The Return of the Feminine Principle: A Question of ‘Thriving Life’ or ‘Destructive Death’

14th May 2016

By Christa Mackinnon

The feminine has become a much-talked-about subject; feminine leadership, feminine ways of working, feminine structures, values and attitudes are topics discussed everywhere, from the underground media to the boardrooms. The return of the feminine seems well under way. 

It will be a long and exciting journey — and it is not without obstacles, not without resistance from those who would like to turn the clock back, and certainly not without the interference of market forces, trying to press this diverse movement into formats that ensure its adaptation to the existing patriarchal structures and thinking.

Nevertheless this journey will continue, as the current global crisis is rooted in humanity’s loss of ‘heart, soul and connection’ – all domains of the feminine – which have been replaced by a materialistic view of the world, by lateral thinking, greed and self-centredness. The more we accept that the latter have brought with them immense destruction in place of the nurturing qualities all life so urgently needs, the more we will be forced to explore the feminine and work towards its emergence and integration into every level of our existence.

The Man Box and the Cult of Masculinity

14th May 2016

The man box is full of proof. Except that there is no man box, the man box can never be filled, and real men don’t need proof.

Let’s start with Abraham and Isaac. You know the story. God tells Abraham to slit his child’s throat. Abraham ties up his son, raises the knife, and at the last moment God says it was a test. End of story. Lesson? Abraham shows, by his willingness to violate his own child, the proof of his worth. And Isaac learns that his father was willing to kill him rather than act against the cult of masculinity — against the rules of the man box.

There are many rules of the man box, even though there is no man box, and there are no rules. Why call it a box when it’s the way things are? And why call it a rule when it’s who you are?

A Brief History of the Rockefeller/Rothschild Empire

“The real rulers in Washington are invisible, and exercise power from behind the scenes.” – Felix Frankfurter, Supreme Court Justice, 1952

‘Rockefeller’ and ‘Rothschild’ are two of the most common names discussed in the conscious community, and if you’re like me, all of the talk about them (and the so-called ‘elite’ families in general) has made you want to know more about what they’re doing and how they came to power.

In the interest of satiating curiosity, I’d like to look briefly at the history of the Rockefeller and Rothschild families and, in doing so, provide a glimpse of what these families did to become so powerful that they essentially own the government.

“If the Government cannot create happiness for its people, there is no purpose for the Government to exist.” ~Legal code of Bhutan, 1729

Lodged between two of the most populated countries on earth — India and China — Bhutan may be small at 700,000 souls, but it has a mighty role to play in showing the world how to preserve the environment, while also cultivating happiness in its human population. In fact, the Bhutanese believe that nature and happiness go hand in hand, that it’s impossible to have one without the other.

“Preserve our natural rich heritage do not pollute the surroundings. Remember nature is the source of all happiness.” ~ Drukgyel HSS

How Money From Pharmaceutical Companies Sways Doctors’ Prescriptions

12th May 2016

By Dr. Joseph Mercola

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

If your doctor receives money or gifts from a drug company, be it payment for a lecture or a free meal, does it influence the medications he or she in turn prescribes? This represents the burning question in an industry saturated with pharmaceutical company involvement.

A ProPublica analysis revealed nearly nine in 10 cardiologists, and seven in 10 internists and family practitioners, included in their study received payments from drug or device companies in 2014.[1] But the analysis didn’t stop there.

It also looked into whether or not such payments were associated with prescribing practices, and here’s where things got interesting.

5 Solutions for a New World

12th May 2016

By Tim Bryant

Guest writer for Wake Up World

With the rise of alternative media, seeing the flaws in the mainstream media is quite easy if one knows where to look. It’s also particularly easy these days, thanks to the dawn of the Internet, to dig deep into history and discover that it has been completely misrepresented, along with the many forces behind it. As an alternative community, it seems the focus has been solely put on pointing out everything that is wrong in society. But what about solutions? It would seem that everyone is in this journey to change the world together. If that is the case, then it’s important to start focusing mass amounts of energy on the solutions to these problems rather than just simply pointing out the flaws. Finding the holes is easy; putting sustainable solutions in place is much more difficult.

This article aims to provide a brief introduction to real life solutions already in place.

Spiritual Life is All About the Process!

Contributing writer for Wake Up World

In my frequent travels around the world, I’m blessed to meet with lots of evolving people, all from different walks of life, but all with commonality about this great shift into the New Paradigm we’re experiencing. You’re yearning for a new sense of equity and justice for all — a vibration where all sentient life is respected and supported. And another phenomenon that’s uniting people is how tough the path is being right now. There’s lots of density and resistance people are experiencing, lots of earth-shattering challenges. It’s like you’re being tested to the limit. My heart goes out to you. What’s it all about? Continue Reading – Spiritual Life is All About the Process!

Wandering Toward Unhappiness: How a Drifting Mind Can Make You Miserable

For Matt Killingsworth Ph.D., studying happiness is a full-time job. A Robert Wood Johnson Health and Society Scholar, inventor of the Track Your Happiness app and doctorate in psychology from Harvard University, he’s driven by the idea of learning what’s behind being joyful. So much so that he embarked on a groundbreaking journey to study people’s happiness in daily life — on a tremendous scale, around the world. Through the use of the app, Killingsworth and his research team were able to compile a massive amount of data concerning what makes us happy (or unhappy) at any given moment.

“My results suggest that happiness is indeed highly sensitive to the contents of our moment-to-moment experience. And one of the most powerful predictors of happiness is something we often do without even realizing it: mind-wandering.”

Dreams, Timelines and Parallel Worlds

10th May 2016

By Zen Gardner

Contributing writer for Wake Up World

Like many of you, I have had dreams in my life, including recurring ones, that were clearly significant. I can’t say I’m an adept interpreter but many of us try to consciously get whatever message we think there may be for us from dreams.

Let’s face it, virtually one third of our lives are spent in the sleeping state yet we know our full consciousness never shuts off. This dream world is a significant one to know about that could teach us many things. That observer inside each of us is getting it all and we need to pay attention and learn.

Several times I have had a strong sense that it’s a parallel existence I was experiencing where perhaps my life had split off and continued on in some different direction, perhaps due to some fundamental decision that I made somewhere along the timeline leading to the one I’m now living in this currently shared 3D existence.

And that can happen every minute of our lives. Quite the mindblowing thought. Continue Reading – Dreams, Timelines and Parallel Worlds

Imagine a World with More Participation, Less Government and Less Tax

10th May 2016

Contributing writer for Wake Up World

Less government and less tax are two widely held desires by many people of the world, regardless of whether they live in overtly repressive regimes or supposedly enlightened democracies.

Around the world, we are drastically over-governed and over-burdened with excessive regulation and bureaucratic bullying from petty tyrants. As the Roman historian Tacitus wisely said, the more corrupt the state, the more numerous the laws.

On an energetic level, the preponderance of government cannot exist without the citizenry enabling it. It’s a codependent relationship; if you act like a powerless slave, you will manifest a harsh master, or conversely, if you already have a harsh master, you can tend to fall unconsciously into the role of powerless slave. We cannot expect to magically have less government and pay less tax if we don’t also do something to address the underlying balance.

However, there is a practical solution that is within the grasp of everyone: more participation.
