“Saruman believes it is only great power that can hold evil in check. But that is not what I have found. I’ve found it is the small things, everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keeps the darkness at bay. Simple acts of kindness and love.”

Must Watch Documentary: ‘Cowspiracy’

Must Watch Documentary: ‘Cowspiracy’

Sep 15

Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret is a groundbreaking feature-length environmental documentary following intrepid filmmaker Kip Andersen as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today — and investigates why the world’s leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it. Animal agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation, water consumption and pollution, is responsible for more greenhouse gases than the transportation industry, and is a primary driver of rainforest destruction, species extinction, habitat loss, topsoil erosion, ocean “dead zones,” and virtually every other environmental ill. Yet it goes on, almost entirely unchallenged…

Excerpt: ‘Dreams: A Portal to The Source’

Excerpt: ‘Dreams: A Portal to The Source’

Sep 06

“Each dream can be seen as aiming toward a widening of awareness. It offers comments, correction, and contributions toward problem solving. Thereby it strengthens, coalesces, or balances the dreamer’s (and/or analyst’s) waking views, and, thus, it serves as an important vehicle to support psychological development. It can also be seen as giving evidence of a source within the dreamer that does see and present metaphor and symbol for the sake of potential psychological insight — a source which comments, corrects and teaches.

“Indeed there is much evidence to suggest that dreams are manifestations of the guiding and ordering center of the personality, the Self, in Jungian terms. Both dreams and outer events can be fruitfully related to as symbolic messages coming from a source that sustains and directs the individuation process throughout the dreamer’s life. The art and craft of dream interpretation, whether the interpreter is aware of it or not, is an act of reverence toward this transcendent guiding power. Working on dreams in therapy serves to provide access to this source…”

Mass Murders & Psychiatric Medications (Updated)

Mass Murders & Psychiatric Medications (Updated)

Aug 30

David Kupelian writes: “Since last month’s horrifying and heartbreaking school massacre in Newtown, Conn., politicians and the press have, as everyone knows, been totally obsessed with firearms… But where, I’d like to ask my colleagues in the media, is the reporting about the psychiatric medications the perpetrator — who had been under treatment for mental-health problems — may have been taking? Perhaps you’re wondering why this issue of psychiatric medications should be so important. As I documented in “How Evil Works,” it is simply indisputable that most perpetrators of school shootings and similar mass murders in our modern era were either on — or just recently coming off of — psychiatric medications…”

Quotes: Baskett & Jones

Aug 23

“A trick I discovered last time I had a pesky, up-to-no-good kitten. When you’re tired of the hassle — the attacking of legs, the destruction of houseplants, or those loud, midnight, party-for-one shenanigans) — take a nice big scoop of yogurt (sugar free) and smear a few globs of it in their fur. They became happily preoccupied forever. Quiet grooming takes over.”

— Amphianda Etta Louise Baskett

“When my kids were little, I would sit them on a towel and smear yogurt on their toes. The cat would lick it off, the babies would laugh till they cried, and everyone was happy!”

— Dana Roach Jones

The Pacific Northwest Earthquake & Tsunami (The REALLY Big One)

The Pacific Northwest Earthquake & Tsunami (The REALLY Big One)

Jul 16

We now know that the Pacific Northwest has experienced forty-one subduction-zone earthquakes in the past ten thousand years. If you divide ten thousand by forty-one, you get two hundred and forty-three, which is the average amount of time that elapses between earthquakes. We are now three hundred and fifteen years into a two-hundred-and-forty-three-year cycle. When the next full-margin rupture happens in the Pacific Northwest, everything west of Interstate 5, including Seattle, Tacoma, Portland, Eugene, Salem (the capital city of Oregon), Olympia (the capital of Washington), and some seven million people will suffer the worst natural disaster in the history of North America. FEMA projects that nearly thirteen thousand people will die in the Cascadia earthquake and tsunami. Another twenty-seven thousand will be injured, and the agency expects that it will need to provide shelter for a million displaced people, and food and water for another two and a half million…

Andrew Cohen & The Dark Side of Enlightenment

Andrew Cohen & The Dark Side of Enlightenment

Jun 05

As human beings, we all have the tendency to focus too strongly on the vertical, spiritual side of our natures, or too strongly on the horizontal, human side of our natures. In order to live healthy, happy, balanced lives, we have to balance and integrate these two forces. When we swing too far one way or the other it’s only a matter of time before we get into serious trouble. This situation that arose around Andrew Cohen is a text-book case of what can happen if vertical and spiritual perspectives are overemphasized…

To Thine Own Self Be True — Or Else…

To Thine Own Self Be True — Or Else…

May 25

The advice, whether from Shakespeare or a modern self-help guru, is common: Be true to yourself. New research suggests that this drive for authenticity — living in accordance with our sense of self, emotions, and values — may be so fundamental that we actually feel immoral and impure when we violate our true sense of self. This sense of impurity, in turn, may lead us to engage in cleansing or charitable behaviors as a way of clearing our conscience…
