The Deep State Institutions That Make Up The “Secret Government”

The Deep State refers to a coordinated effort by career government employees and other individuals to influence state policy without regard for democratically elected leadership.

“Democracy is popular because of the illusion of choice and participation it provides, but when you live in a society in which most people’s knowledge of the world extends as far as sports, sitcoms, reality shows, and celebrity gossip, democracy becomes a very dangerous idea. Until people are properly educated and informed, instead of indoctrinated to be ignorant mindless consumers, democracy is nothing more than a clever tool used by the ruling class to subjugate the rest of of us.”

– Gavin Nascimento

When Eisenhower coined the term “Military Industrial Complex,” his main concern was the potential for the “disastrous rise of misplaced power.” After him, John F. Kennedy (JFK) warned the citizenry that we are living in “a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.” He went on to state that “its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed.”

Before both of these two, 28th President of the United States Woodrow Wilson revealed:

Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.

Perhaps one of the most revealing statements from modern history by a president comes from the 26th president of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt, when he explained how little people know of how government really operates:

Political parties exist to secure responsible government and to execute the will of the people.

From these great tasks both of the old parties have turned aside. Instead of instruments to promote the general welfare, they have become the tools of corrupt interests which use them impartially to serve their selfish purposes. Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.

To destroy this invisible government, to dissolve the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day.

What these presidents did, as many others have done, is reveal the existence of a government within the government that has infiltrated the United States. To see some quotes similar to the ones above, you can refer to this article we published a couple of years ago.

It’s no secret that government policy is largely dictated by corporations, and the financial institutions that sit above them. We no longer live in a democracy, but rather, a “corporatocracy.” This is easy to see if you simply follow the money.

“As difficult as it was for me, I’ve come to an inescapable and profoundly disturbing conclusion. I believe that an elite group of people and the corporations they run have gained control over not just our energy, food supply, education, and healthcare, but over virtually every aspect of our lives; and they do it by controlling the world of finance. Not by creating more value, but by actually controlling the source of money.”

– Foster Gamble

Below is a great clip from the Thrive documentary that explains the modern day banking industry perfectly.

The Deep State 

The military industrial complex, the Deep State, those who the presidents above are referring to, is comprised of a small group of people and the corporations/institutions they run. It has been this way for many years, as so many presidential candidates, like Dr. Ron Paul and Bernie Sanders, have exposed. This organized power completely controls politics, and they do not care who you vote for.

Regardless of who is elected president, this hidden power has an agenda, and they use politics to justify it. Just look at the destabilization of the Middle East.

Our perception of politicians and presidents largely comes from mainstream media, not our ability to think critically about what is going on. If mainstream media praises a candidate, like Hillary Clinton, that’s who the masses prefer. Their power to influence us is tremendous.

Despite the fact that Donald Trump has been vilified, he’s actually taken more action against this powerful group of elite and their interests than most, but it’s hard for people to see this because these corporations (who own the mainstream media, incidentally) continue to slander him — not that he hasn’t made it easy for them.

Below is a great clip from the late Senator Daniel K. Inouye.

1. The Terror War Industry

One great example is the terror war industry, and the presence of a supposed “Islamic Threat.” This perceived threat is maintained through false flag terrorism, a concept that even the mainstream has acknowledged, particularly since multiple politicians and academics have revealed it to the world. Vladimir Putin, for example, recently said the attack in Syria was a false flag, and the globate elite use “imaginary” and “mythical” threats to push forth their agenda.

He, along with many others, also called out the United States and their allies for funding terrorists organizations. In his recent visit to Saudi Arabia, Donald Trump did the same.

The term “terror war industry” comes from FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds, who referenced it during an appearance on RT news. She is a former FBI translator and the founder of the National Security Whistleblowers Coalition (NSWBC). She gained a lot of attention in 2002 after she accused a colleague of covering up illicit activity involving Turkish nationals, which included serious security breaches and cover-ups, alluding to intelligence that was deliberately suppressed.

The Deep State institutions involved with this would be the arms industry and the oil industry, among others.

2. The Federal Reserve

The federal reserve is a privately owned central bank system in the United States disguised as a government owned system.

“The federal reserve is an independent agency and that means basically that, there is no other agency of government which can overrule actions that we take.”

– Alan Greenspan, former Chairman of the Federal Reserve (source)

Henry Ford said, “It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.” 

No matter who you vote for, the banking system remains the same. These people have the ability to print money in a way that keeps them protected, and bleeds everybody else dry. As the quote above from Alan Greenspan illustrates, it’s an independent agency that can make decisions no other branches of government can oppose. The people that control the money control the government, and the presidency. If an institution like the federal reserve isn’t considered a Deep State institution, I don’t know what is.

Every four years we look to somebody to spark change, but perhaps that whole process is meant to distract us. Perhaps we are looking for change in the wrong places.

3. The Military Industrial Complex

Former Republican Congressional Aide Mike Lofgren, who retired in 2011 after spending 28 years as a congressional staffer, defines the Deep State as follows:

It is a hybrid of national security and law enforcement agencies: the Department of Defense, the Department of State, the Department of Homeland Security, the Central Intelligence Agency and the Justice Department. I also include the Department of the Treasury because of its jurisdiction over financial flows, its enforcement of international sanctions and its organic symbiosis with Wall Street.

The military industrial complex is huge, and full of private contractors, intelligence agencies, and other defence agencies that have, just as Eisenhower warned us, amassed a great deal of power. The crazy thing about it is, nobody knows what’s going on in here, not even the President. If the President and the United States Congress doesn’t even have access to this information, just ask yourself, who does?

We’re talking about Special Access Programs (SAPs), in which we have unacknowledged and waived SAPs. These programs do not exist publicly, but they do indeed exist. They are better known as “Deep Black programs.” A 1997 U.S. Senate report described them as “so sensitive that they are exempt from standard reporting requirements to the Congress.”  Welcome to the world of secrecy. You can read more about the Black Budget in detail here.

These programs don’t change, regardless of who you vote for. These are the institutions, agencies, and ongoing programs that are above the law, beyond scrutiny, and operating in near total secrecy.

Business Insider reports that the U.S. intelligence community consists of 17 discreet agencies that operate with enormous budgets and incredible secrecy, bringing total surveillance and total information awareness to bear on the people of Earth.

The United States has had a history of government agencies existing in secret for years. While the National Security Agency (NSA) was founded in 1952, its existence was hidden until the mid 1960s. Even more secretive is the National Reconnaissance Office, which was founded in 1960 but remained completely secret for 30 years.

If Voting Doesn’t Make A Difference, What Will? 

“This is the way the system works, it’s a rotten system, and I see elections as so much of a charade. So much deceit goes on. . . . whether it’s a Republican or a Democrat president, the people who want to keep the status quo seems to have their finger in the pot and can control things. They just get so nervous so, if they have an independent thinker out there, whether it’s Sanders, or Trump, or Ron Paul, they’re going to be very desperate to try to change things. . . . More people are discovering that the system is all rigged, and that voting is just pacification for the voters and it really doesn’t count.”

– Dr. Ron Paul, three-time presidential candidate (source)

Voting is simply the illusion of choice. As former New York City Mayor John F. Hylan stated:

The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government, which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation . . . The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both parties. . . . (source)(source)

These Deep State institutions have been in place for a long time, and remain in place regardless of who votes. So what changes things? Let’s take a look at some examples.

Take Genetically Modified Foods, for instance, an issue for which activism and awareness alone have created groundbreaking change. One example would be the fact that a federal lawsuit forced the U.S. government to share disturbing facts about genetically engineered foods. You can read more about that here.

As a result, a number of countries have since completely banned GMOs and the pesticides that go with them. This is where change comes from: us, not them. If we constantly look to one person, who is usually part of the “1 percent,” to make significant changes, nothing will ever change. Politics seems like one big distraction, a place for powerful people to play games with the population and keep our attention. It’s become more of an entertainment platform as opposed to a real platform for change.

But there is a massive shift in consciousness occurring. The veil that blinds the masses in so many ways is becoming transparent. Our thoughts and feelings about our world are changing, and as a result, we are beginning to manifest a new one. We are definitely living in a time where new information and evidence will conflict with long-held belief systems

Seeing through this Deep State and the institutions that really call the shots is a key step. We must create more awareness about these issues and speak up about them instead of just giving all of our power over to one individual, hoping that they can make some sort of change for us. We have to do it.

New Study Shows Intermittent Fasting May Be Powerful Tool To Increasing Longevity

Manipulating the mitochondrial network that resides inside our cells, either by dietary restriction or genetic manipulation, may promote health and even increase lifespan, according to new research from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

Recently published in Cell Metabolism, the study highlights the biology involved in cells’ declining ability to process energy over time, a decline that eventually leads to various age-related diseases. It also explores how periods of intermittent fasting can promote healthier aging and thus longevity.

How Does This Process Work?

Mitochondria are the structures in your cells that produce energy, and they exist in networks that change shape depending on the energy demand they face. This elasticity declines with age, however, and the reason why this happens has been a mystery, at least until now. In this new study, researchers were able to show a casual link between the changes in mitochondrial network shape and longevity.

The Study

Using nematode worms, which have a lifespan of only two weeks, researchers were able to study aging in real-time in the lab. While mitochondrial networks usually alternate between fragmented and fused states, researchers found that by restricting the worms’ diet and mimicking dietary restriction by using an energy-sensing protein called AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK), they could maintain the fused mitochondrial networks — those in a more “youthful” state. They also determined that these more youthful networks increased lifespan by directly communicating with organelles called peroxisomes to modulate fat metabolism.

“Low-energy conditions such as dietary restriction and intermittent fasting have previously been shown to promote healthy aging. Understanding why this is the case is a crucial step toward being able to harness the benefits therapeutically,” said Heather Weir, lead author of the study, who conducted the research while at Harvard Chan School. “Our findings open up new avenues in the search for therapeutic strategies that will reduce our likelihood of developing age-related diseases as we get older.”

“Although previous work has shown how intermittent fasting can slow aging, we are only beginning to understand the underlying biology,” said William Mair, associate professor of genetics and complex diseases at Harvard Chan School and senior author of the study. “Our work shows how crucial the plasticity of mitochondria networks is for the benefits of fasting. If we lock mitochondria in one state, we completely block the effects of fasting or dietary restriction on longevity.”

They then explored the role that mitochondrial networks have in the effect of fasting in mammals, and whether mitochondrial inflexibility might explain the association between obesity and the risk of age-related diseases.

So, What Is Intermittent Fasting, and Can It Help You?

Intermittent fasting is the process of restricting your eating to an 8-10 hour period. So, if you choose to eat from 12 p.m. – 8 p.m., you must fulfil all your caloric needs within this window and refrain from eating the rest of the day. If you are thinking this sounds difficult, it’s because it goes against much of what we have been taught to believe about our energy needs, including the notion that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Transitioning to this schedule may be difficult at first, since it marks a dramatic change from what most of us are used to, but it is possible to adapt with time. There is also a good chance you will start to notice the benefits quickly, which will motivate you to stay on track.

From my personal experience with intermittent fasting, I was surprised by how much energy I had in the mornings, right up until when I would break my fast (break-fast) with a fruit and veggie smoothie. When we eat late at night, our sleep isn’t as restful, because our bodies are using up energy to digest the food we’ve eaten rather than resting and recovering. Yet while fasting, your system is clear, so there is nothing fogging up your mind, and again you aren’t digesting food that you just consumed, so you have more energy to devote to other things. It may seem backwards, especially considering what we’ve been taught about food our whole lives, but considering we’ve been conditioned into accepting many other unhealthy habits as well, this practice is worth investigating seriously. Intermittent fasting provides the digestive system with a much-needed break; it’s not designed to constantly be digesting food.

It should be noted that most people recommend a wider fasting window for women — 14-16 hours — so a woman’s fasting schedule will look a little different. Our hormones function differently and therefore our bodies have different requirements, too.

This isn’t the first study to show the benefits of intermittent fasting, which include weight loss and immune system regeneration, and we have covered this topic extensively in the past.

Researchers Show Where The Aluminum Travels To In The Body & Stays After Vaccination

When it comes to the most widely used adjuvant ingredient found within vaccines, aluminum, many questions have yet to be answered, particularly when it comes to where the aluminum goes after injection, an issue known as biopersistence.

One reason this question arises is because a causative role has been established in what’s known as macrophagic myofasciitis (MMF) lesion in patients who have myalgic encephalomyelitis, or brain inflammation. Myalgia, arthralgia, chronic fatigue, cognitive dysfunction, dysautonomia, and autoimmunity have been temporally linked to aluminium adjuvant-containing vaccine administration (Gherardi and Authier, 2003; Authier et al., 2003; Exley et al., 2009; Rosenblum et al., 2011; Santiago et al., 2014; Brinth et al., 2015; Palmieri et al., 2016).

“Evidence that aluminum-coated particles phagocytozed in the injected muscle and its draining lymph nodes can disseminate within phagocytes throughout the body and slowly accumulate in the brain further suggested that alum safety should be evaluated in the long term.” (source)

This study has prompted further research evaluating the potential hazards of injected aluminum, which begs the question, why hasn’t proper evidence and evaluation been published showing that it’s safe to inject aluminum into babies via several vaccines in a short period of time? Aluminum adjuvants may be effective for stimulating an immune response, but to simply presume there are no consequences for doing this, or to not emphasize or even state the adverse effects that have been discovered, is, I would argue, criminally negligent.

Such negligence is not uncommon when dealing with pharmaceutical companies, however. For example, a study published in the British Medical Journal and conducted by researchers at the Nordic Cochrane Center in Copenhagen showed that pharmaceutical companies were not disclosing all information regarding the results of their drug trials.

Even the FDA has been caught manipulating media and science press. 

Examples of such fraud and corruption are endless, and the result of what many have dubbed the “corporatization” of science. Many from within the field have published a lot of work with the intention of creating more awareness about this grim reality.

Dr. Marcia Angell, a physician and longtime Editor-in-Chief of the New England Medical Journal (NEMJ), one of the most prestigious peer-reviewed medical journals in the world, has said that “it is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.”  (source)

She is one of many. You can read more about this here: Peer-Reviewed Science Losing Credibility as Large Amounts of Research Shown to Be False

It’s good to see that we are entering a time when these vaccine ingredients aren’t just assumed to be safe, especially aluminum, which had no place on planet Earth until humans made it, and it definitely has no place in the human body. Because vaccines have, historically, been viewed as non-toxic substances, the FDA and vaccine manufactures simply didn’t conduct appropriate toxicity studies to prove the safety of vaccine ingredients, like aluminum. (source)

A study published in BMC Medicine showed that alum-containing vaccines were associated with the appearance of aluminum deposits in distant organs, such as the spleen and brain, and were still detectable one year after injection. The same group from France published another study two years later, emphasizing that there are “several gaps in the knowledge on alum particles, including their exact mechanisms of action, their fate after injection, their systemic dissemination, and their safety on the long-term. Efforts have been done in the last years to develop novel adjuvants, but attempts to seriously examine safety concerns raised by the bio-persistent character and brain accumulation of alum particles have not been made.”

Fast forward to this year, and multiple in vivo studies have been published showing that injected aluminum, and aluminum used as an adjuvant within vaccines, does not come into the same method of excretion as aluminum that accumulates in our body from our food, for example. Our bodies do a good job at eliminating this type of aluminum, but the same cannot be said of injected aluminum. This is why multiple studies are implicating injected aluminum with multiple neurodegenerative disorders, like autism in the short term, or Alzheimer’s in the long term, because aluminum could be going to the brain and staying there for life.

Apart from observed behavioural abnormalities, the 2017 study showed that the “measurement of cerebral Al (aluminum) revealed a significantly higher Al level in brains from animals injected . . . than in brains from control group.” (source)

What’s also interesting is that there was “no significant increase” detected in the animals that were injected with a higher dose.

It’s concerning, especially because we already know that environmental aluminium has long been suspected to act as a co-factor in several chronic neurological diseases (Van Rensburg et al., 2001; De Sole et al., 2013; Exley 2013, 2014). Please refer to these studies to see the mechanism by which these authors are suggesting aluminum is transported to the brain.

“Experimental research . . . clearly shows that aluminum adjuvants have a potential to induce serious immunological disorders in humans.”

–  Dr. Lucija Tomlijenovic (source)

Here is a great quote from Dr. Jose G. Dores, a professor at the University of Brasilia’s Department of Nutritional Sciences who recently published a study in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. In the study, he offers the following observation: “Despite their long use as active agents of medicines and fungicides, the safety levels of these substances have never been determined, either for animals or for adult humans—much less for fetuses, newborns, infants, and children.”  (source)

Below is a video with Dr. Christopher Shaw, a professor from UBC, explaining why injected aluminum is a concern. We also recently conducted an interview with him, and will be releasing some of that out to you soon.

Here is a great video by Dr. Christopher Exley, a Professor in Bioinorganic Chemistry at Keele University and Honorary Professor at UHI Millennium Institute. He is known as one of the world’s leading experts on aluminum toxicity.

With So Many Studies Raising Concerns, Why Do So Few People Know About This?

The same thing has happened with mercury. Not long ago, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Chairman of the World Mercury Project (WMP), announced a $100,000 challenge and initiative aimed at putting an end to the inclusion of mercury, a neurotoxin 100 times more poisonous than lead, in vaccines administered in the U.S and globally. He held a press conference presenting a number of scientific publications raising several concerns with regards to injecting mercury into children. As with aluminum, there are no studies proving it’s actually safe to do this.

And a fairly recent Meta-Analysis published in the journal Bio Med Research International found:

The studies upon which the CDC relies and over which it exerted some level of control report that there is no increased risk of autism from exposure to organic Hg in vaccines, and some of these studies even reported that exposure to Thimerosal appeared to decrease the risk of autism. These six studies are in sharp contrast to research conducted by independent researchers over the past 75+ years that have consistently found Thimerosal to be harmful. As mentioned in the Introduction section, many studies conducted by independent investigators have found Thimerosal to be associated with neurodevelopmental disorders. Considering that there are many studies conducted by independent researchers which show a relationship between Thimerosal and neurodevelopmental disorders, the results of the six studies examined in this review, particularly those showing the protective effects of Thimerosal, should bring into question the validity of the methodology used in the studies. (source)

You can read more about that here.

So why does nobody know about this? Political insider Robert F. Kennedy Jr. explains:

Vaccines are big business. Pharma is a trillion-dollar industry with vaccines accounting for $25 billion in annual sales. CDC’s decision to add a vaccine to the schedule can guarantee its manufacturer millions of customers and billions in revenue with minimal advertising or marketing costs and complete immunity from lawsuits. High stakes and the seamless marriage between Big Pharma and government agencies have spawned an opaque and crooked regulatory system. . . .

Public health may not be the sole driver of CDC decisions to mandate new vaccines. Four scathing federal studies, including two by Congress, one by the US Senate, and one by the HHS Inspector General, paint CDC as a cesspool of corruption, mismanagement, and dysfunction with alarming conflicts of interest suborning its research, regulatory, and policymaking functions. (World Mercury Project)

Related World Mercury Project Article:  CDC: Corruption, Deceit and Cover-Up

There are real life examples of this too, like, William Thompson, a longtime senior CDC scientist who published some of the most commonly cited pro-vaccine studies, which showed that there was absolutely no link between the MMR vaccine and autism (Thompson, et al. 2007, Price, et al. 2010Destefano, et al. 2004). Dr. Thompson recently admitted that  it was “the lowest point” in his career when he “went along with that paper.” He went on to say that he and the other authors “didn’t report significant findings” and that he is “completely ashamed” of what he did. He was “complicit and went along with this,” and regrets that he has “been a part of the problem.” (source)(source)(source)

I could go on, but I’ll conclude by saying that we must continue to raise our voices and demand transparency. We must not let the corporate world continue to wreak havoc and sacrifice our health for their greed.

Sacrificing Animals For Science 

Collective Evolution is a platform of animal activists, and it does conflict me to constantly look at studies where animals are bred and grown for such a sacrifice. That being said, perhaps for now, in some cases it can be looked upon the way the indigenous looked upon the animals they used to sustain themselves. You can read more about that here, in an article discussing what Native North American elders might say about a vegan diet and the modern day meat industry.  Some of the things animals are subjected to in the name of “science” are actually horrible. The cosmetics industry, to name one, is a heart-breaking example. Why are animals considered lesser beings? If these products are for us, they should be tested on humans. Perhaps one day we will be able to grow human bodies, devoid of any consciousness, to advance science, but then a number of other questions come into play.

As far as vaccines go, injecting aluminum into an animal is almost unnecessary at this point in my opinion, because as far as I’m concerned, we already know the result is not going to be good, so what’s the point of continuing to do so? Unfortunately, the language of science is far different, and perhaps these animals, on some deeper level, played that role so we can open our eyes and see the bigger picture. This type of perspective is discussed in the article linked in the previous paragraph, stories of Native North Americans and their relationship with animals might help with this perspective.

Not in all cases, but in many cases, alternatives to animal testing are sometimes more effective, quicker and cheaper. But this may not be true for all cases.

Why Many Women Don’t Have Orgasms

Did you know that only 25% of women are consistently orgasmic during sexual intercourse?

According to an analysis of 33 studies over the past 80 years by Elisabeth Lloyd in her book The Case of the Female Orgasm, 50% of women have orgasms sometimes, 20% seldom do, and 5% never have orgasms.

Can you imagine?

As I travel around the world attending workshops in tantra and conscious sexuality, there are always a number of women who can’t feel pleasure because their clitoris and vagina are completely numb and there is at least one woman at every retreat who has NEVER experienced an orgasm – even after decades of having sex.

Many of the women that I work with have lost their desire for sex, have been abused and are fearful, or think that there is something wrong with them because they don’t feel the pleasure that they hear other women talk about.

Let’s look at some reasons why.

1) Vaginas are not Cylinders for Penises

In procreative sex, the penis pumps the vagina, gaining excitement in order to focus all the orgasmic energy to shoot sperm through a tunnel to hopefully impregnate an egg. This is similar to winding up a toy car and then letting it go. It’s great fun. And in this case, the vagina is truly the vessel for the penis to become excited within and to help direct the sperm where it needs to go.

But beyond this procreative sex model, the vagina (also called yoni) has much greater capacity. She is an organ with luscious folds and muscles and, quite honestly, a mind of her own when she is happy and excited.

In the procreative model, she must be tight. But this lessens her sensitivity for pleasure in the same way that a fighter tightens his abdominal muscles in order to take a punch. The tighter the yoni is (and the harder the penis is), the less sensitivity there is. As the years go on, and she has more and more procreative-style sex, her yoni naturally becomes de-sensitized – like armour – since she is always having to be tight for the penis to be ramming in and out. She is literally protecting herself with every thrust. There are times when this is enjoyable. But an armour is created nonetheless.

But when she is allowed to be relaxed and have connected intercourse, her walls are allowed to come alive. When the penis enters and “plugs in” without continually “unplugging,” she is able to relax completely and truly feel what is going on. Depending on the pleasure she is feeling, her walls might start to oscillate – literally rolling in waves of pleasure along the shaft of the penis. This is often described as the yoni “milking” the penis… which is incredibly pleasurable for both partners.

With every wave of pleasure that her yoni experiences, the delicate nerve-endings in her vaginal walls send waves of pleasure throughout her whole body. She will feel this orgasmic flow all the way to her fingertips and the top of her head. Her partner simply needs to stay connected to her and they can ride this incredible orgasmic wave together.

2) Her Heart Must be Open

We are magnetic creatures. In many tantra schools, we learn that a woman’s positive pole is her heart and her yoni is negative. The positive pole “gives” and the negative pole “receives.” (It is the opposite in men – hence the circular energy flow that is possible in intercourse.)

If you want the negative pole to be activated, you must stimulate the positive pole. (If we stimulate a woman’s negative pole through aggressive clitoral stimulation, as pleasurable as this is, it causes the yoni to tighten and become positive. The pressure will build in her similar to a penis and she will want release. This can feel very good. But it leads to “friction sex” and doesn’t allow for full-body orgasmic flow.)

Stimulating the positive pole can be done through caressing the breasts in a way that is enjoyable to her. This can be challenging since many women’s breasts and nipples have become de-sensitized through breast-feeding and rough handling. Many women say that they feel nothing in their breasts. But with gentle, conscious touch and healing, this wonderful sensitivity can be brought back.

But the greater way to stimulate her positive pole is through LOVE.

It is through true connection and open-hearted love that her positive pole is the most stimulated. It is through showing your love by doing kind things for her, connecting intimately with her and simply loving her completely that will fill her heart the most. When a woman feels loved, her yoni will naturally open and she will long to merge with you. But if the love comes with strings attached, she will stay protected and closed.

3) Healing the Feeling of Being Used

The tantra teacher Barry Long used to say that “Women are tired of being used as men’s sexual spittoons.”

This might seem harsh. But historically, it is very accurate. Women had roles in the home and in the marital relationship. They weren’t supposed to say no to sex. They were married. It was their obligation.

It was only the sexual revolution of the 60s that truly made it widespread that women could enjoy sex and have orgasms. For centuries before that, it wasn’t even believed that it was possible (let alone important). So, it certainly wasn’t focused on.

Just imagine how much painful and unwanted sex women felt (or were) forced to have.

This is the historical foundation for our heterosexual relationships today. Phantoms of this history still live within us as fears, trauma and the ideas that we still hold about sex and committed relationships.

But now we are learning what it means to truly make love.

In tantric intimacy, we often teach non-ejaculatory sex. Not that there is anything particularly wrong with ejaculating – it is an important part of procreative sex. But in order to go beyond the procreative model, we must imagine being intimate for the intention of connection and simply making love. The intention and goal of ejaculation keeps us locked in the small box of procreation when our goal is to experience what is beyond it.

In many of the couples that I work with, the women would love to try making love with their partner without the need to ejaculate. They don’t enjoy sex any more. They have had too much unwanted sex already. Their bodies have shut down.

But the idea of just being loving – of gentle touch for simple pleasure – of being close – of feeling loved… Yes, they want this very much.

But Things are Changing

We are now seeking something more. We know that there is so much more to sexuality and intimacy than the generations before us. We have rights and freedom and choice that our grandparents couldn’t have imagined.

We are learning what our bodies are about – far beyond our animal instincts and abilities to procreate.

We are learning how to play with the divine and infinite parts of ourselves.

We are understanding what miracles our bodies truly are – inside and out.

We once chased orgasm because we thought that that was the ultimate (which is true in procreative sex). But now the true goal is to be totally orgasmic. This is our true nature.

And as women learn how to be this way, we will no longer be chasing the orgasm. We will not worry about having an orgasm this time or the next time.

We will simply be orgasmic – all day long – and definitely in the bedroom.

How Statins Can Cause Heart Problems, Neurodegenerative Disorders Like Parkinson’s

If you’ve never heard of the commonly used pharmaceutical drug “Statin,” it’s basically a prescription used to decrease “bad” cholesterol levels. It’s common for people with heart disease to take them, despite the fact that half of all heart attacks occur in people with normal cholesterol levels.

In reality, cholesterol doesn’t necessarily cause heart disease. The French have the highest average cholesterol in all of Europe (approximately 250), yet they have the lowest number of people with heart disease and only experience about half the amount of heart attacks that Americans do. This is where the cholesterol myth comes into play, a belief system that’s perpetuated by Big Pharma. How else would they be able to convince 20 millions Americans to take Statins to lower their cholesterol?

How Does the “Cholesterol Myth” Relate to Heart Disease? 

MIT Scientist Raymond Francis answers this question in his paper titled “The Cholesterol Myth,” arguing that “the answer is a story involving the triumph of money and power over science.”

Francis goes on to explain:

Atherosclerosis—the main cause of heart attacks and strokes—is the accumulation of fatty plaque inside the walls of major arteries. As the disease progresses, arteries become increasingly narrow, making it easier for a blood clot or piece of dislodged plaque to completely block blood flow, resulting in either a heart attack or a stroke. When cholesterol was found to be a major component of arterial plaque, the “cholesterol theory of heart disease” was born, thinking that high cholesterol levels cause atherosclerosis. The truth, however, is not so simple. Cholesterol is an anti¬oxidant, a repair and healing molecule. The body produces more of it in response to stress and tissue damage, when repair and healing are needed. Remove the causes of the body’s distress, like inflammation and oxidation, and you lower cholesterol. It turned out that blaming cholesterol for heart disease makes as much sense as blaming the Red Cross for the disasters it responds to.

Drug companies took advantage of this theory, investing millions in R&D into cholesterol-lowering drugs, and so Statins were created. As many of you know, Big Pharma plays a huge role in manipulating and writing legislation, and creates much of the scientific literature and knowledge taught in medical schools. They’re in the ears of doctors, and then they make their way into their pockets as well. Doctors are actually paid to prescribe us more drugs, and you can even discover how much your specific doctor makes here.

Statins are also heavily advertised in the media, which plays a key role in over-diagnosis in North America. Keep in mind that advertising for prescription drugs is illegal in most other parts of the world. In regards to Statins, one study published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine found that people who watched ads for this specific cholesterol drug were 16-22% more likely to take Statins as well as 16-20% more likely to be diagnosed with high cholesterol.

The authors of this particular study concluded:

Our findings raise questions about the extent to which direct-to-consumer advertising may promote over-diagnosis and over-treatment for populations where risks may outweigh potential benefits. In addition, we found no evidence of favorable associations between exposure to statins in television advertisements and statin use among those at high risk for future cardiac events.

Not only are Statins unnecessary for many of the people who take them, but they pose numerous health risks as well. A new study conducted by Penn State College found a correlation between use of Statins and increased risk of Parkinson’s disease.

Statins May Increase Risk of Parkinson’s Disease

The researchers in this Penn State study analyzed data from a database of over 50 million people, 22,000 of whom had Parkinson’s disease. Of that sample, they reduced it to 2,322 patients with new diagnoses of Parkinson’s. Then, they paired each person within the sample size to another individual without Parkinson’s, and those people made up the control group.

Researchers then established which patients had been taking Statins and how long they’d been taking them for before they developed Parkinson’s symptoms. Their findings suggested that prior Statin use resulted in a higher risk of Parkinson’s and, interestingly enough, “was more noticeable during the start of the drug use.”

“Statin use was associated with higher, not lower, Parkinson’s disease risk, and the association was more noticeable for lipophilic statins, an observation inconsistent with the current hypothesis that these statins protect nerve cells,” explained one of the researchers, Xuemei Huang, Ph.D.. “In addition, this association was most robust for use of statins less than two-and-a-half years, suggesting that statins may facilitate the onset of Parkinson’s disease.”

Other Health Issues Related to Statins 

It’s not just Parkinson’s that relates to Statins, either. These drugs can have a whirlwind of side effects and increase one’s risk of developing a number of different diseases. Since Statins block the body’s production of CoQ10, taking Statins can result in fatal muscle inflammation as well as congestive heart failure (which is ironic given that many heart disease patients take them).

Another study published in Expert Review of Clinical Pharmacology revealed that, despite Statin drugs being marketed for their ability to decrease the artery disease called atherosclerosis, they may actually stimulate it and cause heart failure.

Another study published in the American Journal of Physiology found that some of the effects of Statins advance the process of aging, and pointed out that long term use of Statins have been associated with several adverse health effects including myopathy (skeletal muscle weakness), neurological issues, and an increased risk of diabetes.

The researchers stated: “In addition, considering their possible side effects, long-term adherence to statin treatment poses a potential risk, especially among individuals without cardiovascular disease. The primary use of statins should be critically assessed, especially when considering the potential risks associated with statin use.”

Other cognitive issues caused by Statins include temporary amnesia, and even Alzheimer’s. Statins can also cause cognitive decline in general as well as heightened anxiety, depression, and violence. Lastly, Statins have even been linked to liver damage, immunity issues, cancer, cataracts, and birth defects if taken by women.

It’s clear the risks of Statins outweigh their benefits in many cases, and if you or a loved one is taking Statins, then you should consider asking your doctor about other alternatives immediately.

Study Finds Higher Mortality In Infants Who Received The DTP Vaccine Compared To Those Who Didn’t

For many years, public health advocates have vainly urged the CDC and WHO to conduct studies comparing vaccinated vs. unvaccinated populations to measure overall health outcomes.  Now a team of Scandinavian scientists has conducted such a study and the results are alarming.  That study, funded in part by the Danish government and lead by Dr. Soren Wengel Mogensen, was published in January in EBioMedicine.  Mogensen and his team of scientists found that African children inoculated with the DTP (diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis) vaccine, during the early 1980s had a 5-10 times greater mortality than their unvaccinated peers. 

The data suggest that, while the vaccine protects against infection from those three bacteria, it makes children more susceptible to dying from other causes. 

The scientists term the study a “natural experiment” since a birthday-based vaccination system employed for the Bandim Health Project (BHP) in Guinea Bissau, West Africa had the effect of creating a vaccinated cohort and a similarly situated unvaccinated control group.  In the time period covered by this study, Guinea-Bissau had 50% child mortality rates for children up to age 5.  Starting in 1978, BHP health care workers contacted pregnant mothers and encouraged them to visit infant weighing sessions provided by a BHP team every three months after their child’s birth.  Beginning in 1981, BHP offered vaccinations at the weighing sessions.  Since the DPT vaccine and OPV (oral polio) immunizations were offered only to children who were at least three months of age at the weighing sessions, the children’s random birthdays allowed for analysis of deaths between 3 and 5 months of age depending on vaccination status.  So, for example, a child born on January 1st and weighed on April 1st would be vaccinated, but a child born on February 1st would not be vaccinated until their following visit at age 5 months on July 1st.

In the primary analysis, DTP-vaccinated infants experienced mortalities five times greater than DTP-unvaccinated infants.  Mortalities to vaccinated girls were 9.98 times those among females in the unvaccinated control group, while mortalities to vaccinated boys were 3.93 times the controls.  Oddly, the scientists found that children receiving the oral polio vaccine simultaneously with DTP fared much better than children who did not.  The OPV vaccine appeared to modify the negative effect of the DTP vaccine, reducing mortalities to 3.52 times those experienced among the control group.  Overall, mortalities among vaccinated children were 10 times the control group when children received only the DTP.

Mogensen and his colleagues hypothesize that the DTP vaccine might weaken a child’s immune system against non-target infections.  They conclude, “Though protective against the target disease, DTP may increase susceptibility to unrelated infections… DTP was associated with 5-fold higher mortality than being unvaccinated.  No prospective study has shown beneficial survival effects of DTP.”

The Mogensen study supports the conclusions of previous investigations into child survival following vaccination.  An earlier study by Dr. Peter Aaby, of the introduction of DTP in rural Guinea-Bissau, indicated a 2-fold higher mortality among vaccinated children (Aaby et al. 2004a).  The Aaby report is one of several early studies that documented vaccination status and followed children prospectively.  All of them indicated that DTP-vaccinated children died at rates far exceeding mortality amongst the control group.  A meta-analysis of all eight known studies found a two-fold higher mortality for DTP-vaccinated compared to DTP-unvaccinated (Aaby et al. 2016) (Appendix A).

In 2014, The World Health Organization (WHO) Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on Immunization (SAGE) conducted its own literature review of the potential non-specific effects (NSEs) of several vaccines, including DTP, and found that the majority of studies reported a detrimental effect of DTP (Higgins et al., 2014; Strategic Advisory Group of Experts of Immunization, 2014) due to its penchant for increasing susceptibility to unrelated infections.  SAGE recommended further research.

Moreover, Mogensen and his colleagues observe that the studies reviewed by SAGE probably underestimated the lethal effect of the DTP vaccine because of unusually high mortality in the control groups, ”Unvaccinated children in these studies have usually been frail children too sick or malnourished to get vaccinated and the studies may therefore have underestimated the negative effect of DTP”.  The Mogensen study sought to avoid this pitfall by using controls selected by birthday and by eliminating underweight children and orphans from both the study group and the control group.  It included only children who were breastfed.  All the infants were healthy at the time of vaccination.  Nevertheless, the Mogensen authors point out that, even in their study, the unvaccinated children had slightly worse nutritional status and travelled more – biases that would tend to increase mortality. They conclude that, “The estimate from the natural experiment may therefore still be conservative.”

The significance of the Mogensen study findings is underscored by the observation that, “Unfortunately, DTP is the most widely used vaccine, and the proportion who receives DTP3 is used globally as an indicator of the performance of national vaccination programs.”

The authors close with a bracing rebuke to public health regulators, “It should be of concern that the effect of routine vaccinations on all-cause mortality was not tested in randomized trials.  All currently available evidence suggests that DTP vaccine may kill more children from other causes than it saves from diphtheria, tetanus or pertussis.  Though a vaccine protects children against the target disease it may simultaneously increase susceptibility to unrelated infections.”  Those words should serve as a cold water wake-up call to the World Health Organization (WHO), the CDC and other public health officials.  The public in both poor and rich countries has a right to scientifically-based evidence that international vaccine programs are as safe as possible and that they have been thoroughly safety-tested.  The best metrics for measuring safety are studies comparing health outcomes of vaccinated versus unvaccinated cohorts.  Yet, both the CDC and the WHO have aggressively discouraged the pursuit of such studies.

Finally, it’s important to note that the DTP vaccine used in Guinea-Bissau in the early 1980s almost certainly contained high concentrations of both mercury and aluminum. Vaccine makers first created the combined diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis vaccine in the 1940s, mixing in an aluminum adjuvant and a mercury preservative (thimerosal) from its inception.  At that time, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended DTP for mass use in children. Prior to 1990, DTP was the only thimerosal-containing vaccine recommended for infants.

Five manufacturers supplied UNICEF with the DTP vaccines used in West Africa in the late 1970s and early 1980s.  One of these, Biken of Japan, described the industry standard in its 1987 lab report: “Outline of Method of Manufacture—The preparation [of DTP] also contains thimerosal as a preservative.”

By the early 1980s, a cascade of lawsuits filed across the United States on behalf of vaccine-injured children were driving DTP manufacturers from the market and threatening to shut down production of the DTP shot and other vaccines. That threat led the U.S. Congress to bestow legal immunity on vaccine makers via the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Program in 1986, followed in December, 1987, by the rollout of “Vaccine Court.”  Following the recommendation by the Institute of Medicine, vaccine makers removed thimerosal from the American DTaP between 2001-2003.  However, multi-dose DTP vaccines given to tens of millions of children across the African continent continue to contain massive doses of thimerosal (25mcg of ethylmercury per injection) that exceed the EPA’s maximum exposure levels by many times. Neither the CDC nor the WHO has ever published a vaccinated vs. unvaccinated study that would be necessary to determine the overall health impacts of this potent toxin on African children.  The Mogensen report is a loud call for such a study.

Here’s Why They Give Ayahuasca To Prison Inmates On Their Path To Redemption

In a quest to ease pressures on the Brazilian prison system, mental health workers have opted to give prison inmates the psychedelic brew ayahuasca, in the hopes of helping them to work through their deeply-rooted emotional traumas. 

It is no secret that the current prison system lies in shambles. Overcrowded holding spaces, abusive staff, unsanitary living conditions — such environments rarely lead to redemption and rehabilitation, but instead almost always seed further violence, aggression, and feelings of alienation from society.

While some prisons are now offering holistic services such as yoga, meditation, and Reiki, prisoners’ rights advocacy group Acuda is taking it one step further, offering Brazilian prisoners a real shot at a new life through the use of the traditional Amazonian brew, ayahuasca.

Ayahuasca is a psychoactive brew that combines a specific Amazonian vine (Banisteriopsis caapi) with a leaf (Psychotria viridis), creating an extremely pungent, orally-active cocktail of DMT, a powerful psychedelic known to induce mystical and life-changing experiences for its user.

At first, Acuda had trouble finding a place where the inmates could drink the ayahuasca, but they were finally accepted by an offshoot of Santo Daime, a Brazilian religion founded in the 1930s that blends Catholicism, African traditions, and the trance communications with spirits popularized in the 19th century by a Frenchman known as Allan Kardec.

Many people in Brazil believe that inmates must suffer, enduring hunger and depravity,” said Euza Beloti, a psychologist with Acuda, to the New York Times. “This thinking bolsters a system where prisoners return to society more violent than when they entered prison. [At Acuda] we simply see inmates as human beings with the capacity to change.”

Supervisors at Acuda, who obtain a judge’s permission to take about 15 prisoners once a month to the temple ceremony, say they are mindful of the risks of ayahuasca, commonly called Daime in Brazil or referred to as tea. At the same time, Acuda’s therapists consume the brew with the inmates, as well as with the occasional prison guard who volunteers to accompany the group.

This is how it should be,” said Virgílio Siqueira, 55, a retired police officer who works as a guard at the prison complex that includes Acuda. “It’s gratifying to know that we can sit here in the forest, drink our Daime, sing our hymns, exist in peace.”

But in a country where conservative views are ever-growing in response to continual violence and crime, not everyone is convinced this intervention is okay.

Where are the massages and the therapy for us?” asked Paulo Freitas, a 48-year-old manager at a leather factory whose 18-year-old daughter, Naiara, a college student, was kidnapped, raped, and murdered in Porto Velho in 2013 by a group of men — a crime that stunned many people in this corner of the Amazon.

Whether or not we should be providing convicts with therapies that could be considered “luxury” is a justified question, no doubt. However, we cannot ignore the fact that many criminals eventually return to society after their sentence. Do we want to see these people as a product of years of violence and aggression, most likely repeating their offences, or would we rather have them come out of their sentence with new insights, a new perspective on their past choices, and a chance to do things differently?

We are considered the trash of Brazil, but this place accepts us,” said Darci Altair Santos da Silva, 43, a construction worker serving a 13-year sentence for sexual abuse of a child under 14. “I know what I did was very cruel. The tea helped me reflect on this fact, on the possibility that one day I can find redemption.”

The Journey To The Centre Of The Earth — Just How Far Down Have We Gone? (Video)

The journey to the centre of the earth: is this a myth, a story, or is this something that we have done or are in the process of doing? We know about drilling into the Earth’s crust for resources such as fossil fuels, mine shafts that go deep, deep down, and we know, to some degree, about some underground bunkers etc.

But how far into the Earth have we actually gone, and how much has been left undiscovered? We know what science has told us about the composition beyond the Earth’s crust, but what may be surprising for you to know is that we have barely even scratched the Earth’s surface in comparison to what is still waiting to be discovered. After watching the video below, it may leave you questioning whether there may be something to those inner earth theories after all.

After watching this video I was completely floored. I actually remember in Science class being taught about what the Earth is made of: the crust, mantle, inner core, and outer core comprising rock, liquid iron, and solid iron. I asked my teacher how they knew this, and she replied, “oh because they’ve drilled down and have been able to find out.” Of course I just accepted this answer.

I did not realize how impossible that actually would be (drilling down). But now, I’m feeling a bit skeptical, and more so just open to the possibilities of what the Earth might actually be made of.

Now, in no way am I presenting this as fact, but merely something to consider for those of you who enjoy exploring the unlimited possibilities of what could be, despite what mainstream science has led us to believe. No, I’m not about to state a case of the flat earth theory, quite the opposite actually.

Enter, Agartha — The Hollow Earth Theory

There are many theories alluding to an ancient city that lies deep within this Earth’s centre, where either beings once lived or in some theories are still living. It is well known that Hitler himself was fascinated with this theory and made efforts to find the inner earth; there were even maps drawn up that support this claim.
Then there is the story of Operation Hyjump and Admiral Byrd, who apparently flew to the centre of the earth through an opening in the south pole – many believers claim that the entrance to the inner earth is via either the North or South Pole, and interestingly, nowadays, aircraft are prohibited from flying over either of these poles. Once there, he apparently saw lush lakes, greenery, and woolly mammoths, which we all know have been extinct, on the surface of Earth anyways, for thousands of years.

Numerous writers throughout history have been inspired by this story. Creator of Tarzan Edgar Rice Burroughs At the Earth’s Core, 1914, Edgar Allen Poe The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket, 1838 and, most famously, Jules Verne, whose 1864 novel A Journey to the Centre of the Earth has been adapted into film a few times.

There is a huge amount of research and theories that back up this notion, and if you are intrigued by this story I highly suggest looking into it some more. The theory of the inner earth has been tied to many different civilizations throughout our history, and is intriguing to say the least. When you consider the sheer volume of the Earth and how massive it actually is, then it makes it easier to believe in possibilities such as this. At the very least, it’s a very compelling story that has been told for thousands of years.

What do you think of this theory, could it hold some truth? Is it truth? Or is it absolutely, positively impossible? Let us know!

The Four Key Elements of True Love, According To Thich Nhat Hanh, A Vietnamese Buddhist Monk

You must love in such a way that the person you love feels free.”

– Thich Nhat Hanh

What is love? What is ‘true’ love? Can it even be defined? Today, our ideas about love are largely defined by fairytales, movies, and television shows, and its definition continues to change. But we all have certain conditions attached to our idea of what love is, or some sort of criteria drawn up for what our ‘perfect match’ would look like. The right partner is required to have certain things, be a certain way, and like certain activities — and that’s okay.

But perhaps true love is simpler than popular culture would have us believe. As Thich Nhat Hanh, a Vietnamese Buddhist Monk, explains below, if there is love/kindness, compassion, joy, and inclusiveness, according to Buddhist teaching, you are experiencing true love. It’s pretty simple. True love doesn’t necessarily have to be something magical that sprung out of a fairy tale.

Main points taken from the video:

  • Love and kindness have the power to create happiness. When you are able to develop  feelings of joy and happiness in yourself, that’s true love, offered to yourself. If you can generate these feelings, and help the other person generate these feelings, that’s true love. So, if you are a source of joy and happiness for another, that is true love.
  • True love is the capacity to make yourself suffer less, and help the other person suffer less. “There is an art of suffering. If you know how to suffer, you suffer much, much less.”
  • Practice compassion and it will grow.
  • If love does not generate joy, it’s not love. If love makes the other person cry every day, it’s not love.

“True love is capable of generating joy for yourself and for the other person.”

What do you think ‘true love’ is? Please feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.

A Video of John Lennon Explaining A Truth About Our World That’s Become More Obvious Since He Passed

Between the wars on terror and on drugs, recurring  economic disasters and the disappearing middle class, racial wars, Big Pharma, GMOs, and corporate lobbying, it’s clear we’re in desperate need of change, and you have to wonder how we got here in the first place.

It was in my later years of high school that I began to feel relief about something that had bothered me for a long time: I started to realize how the world really works. Now, at 30 years old, I’ve interviewed and worked with many of the top researchers in the field of truth seeking. These conversations have illuminated many truths about our world, but none more so than this one: Our world is run by psychopaths.

I want to be very clear here — my aim is not to judge these men and women or call them evil, nor is it to stir up strong emotions amongst my readers. This is about taking a good, hard look at what’s really going on in our world so we can actually begin the work of changing it.

“As difficult as it was for me, I’ve come to an inescapable and profoundly disturbing conclusion. I believe that an elite group of people and the corporations they run have gained control over not just our energy, food supply, education, and healthcare, but over virtually every aspect of our lives; and they do it by controlling the world of finance. Not by creating more value, but by actually controlling the source of money.”

– Foster Gamble

Why It’s Important

You know it; you feel it. Something is not quite right with our world, and as each day goes by, more and more people are realizing this in a big way. In 2016 we witnessed millions begin to realize how elections are rigged and that we truly have no choice about who governs us.

We began to learn that our world leaders are closely involved with companies who fund terror and that the War on Terror is fabricated to justify certain actions.

Coming to understandings like this shows a shift in our overall consciousness as a planet and helps us to realize how we can move forward. Should we keep voting expecting to see change when that’s not how our world actually works? Should we spend money supporting companies who are harming us and our environment? Should we support the medical system blindly rather than working to create better health and wellness so we experience fewer illnesses overall?

The more we understand how the game works, the more we can determine how to change it. Think of it this way: Imagine you are playing a game and you find out someone is cheating, rigging the rules so you always lose. You might get up, walk away, and refuse to keep playing. Since that person can’t play alone, they’re forced to stop altogether. In a sense, this is exactly what we need to work towards.

A transformation in consciousness comes from understanding, which leads to taking new actions, which helps to create a different world and bring solutions. But it starts with knowledge and consciousness.

John Lennon Speaks Truth

John Lennon’s name is synonymous with peace and political activism. He was always a bit of a rebel, even early in life, and helped millions to think differently about their world. His song “Give Peace a Chance” became an anthem for the anti-war movement and is still heard today during peace marches around the world.

Best known for his time with The Beatles, John has always had strong views about politics and today might be equally as known for his activism and wisdom.

Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us, and the world will be as one.

You don’t need anybody to tell you who you are or what you are. You are what you are!

My role in society, or any artist’s or poet’s role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all. 

Lennon had a deep sense of wisdom about him, and even to this day, his words have the power to affect millions.

On June 6, 1968, Peter Lewis chatted with Lennon and Spinetti about a new play they were working on. The filmed interview would air on BBC-2 as part of the arts program Release. This is a clip from that interview.
