A book titled “Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness Are the Keys to Understanding the Nature of the Universe” has stirred up the Internet, because it contained a notion that life does not end when the body dies, and it can last forever. The author of this publication, scientist Dr. Robert Lanza who was voted the 3rd most important scientist alive by the NY Times, has no doubts that this is possible…..

Vote third party… this will have the same effect as voting for Trump #Drumpf or #Clinton. #JillStein is someone who is anti-establishment as well… We have more than 2 choices. We need to get the word out.
Much LOVE and Light on the difficult Journey we face as a Nation. I just ask myself, who represents my vision of Peace for ALL. Neither candidate holds any values that bring us closer to Peace. You cannot bring Peace through War. This must be only a “LAST RESORT” not the first option. Open your eyes and awaken to the possibilities. Or are we afraid that we will once again have to think for ourselves???? Imagine…I would prefer exactly that!
The macrocosm of the universe is playing out in the microcosm of our lives. From the smallest amount of inhumanity, to the fullest scope of our potential kindnesses, we have reach a turning-point in our existence. The choice from here is our own, and is a testament to the types of humans we choose to be from thus day forward.
Personal attacks on those who speak for Peace and transparency are under attack from the established socio-economic establishments we as humans have allowed to control us for generations. Personal attacks on the integrity of the human race is prominent. We have more hatred and anger than many generations before us. We fight endless wars in the name of said Peace, and this is the most detrimental contradiction we face. Peace cannot come on the backs and blood of other living beings. It has the opposite effect on the collective unconscious.
If we continue to blindly follow without question and blatant disregard for all life, then we are no better than those we judge. We need to not discern other cultures with our own ethnocentrism. We cannot turn a blind eye to the horrors and atrocities committed by the “Powers that Be,” within our own personal psyches, and under the guise of “religion.”
Admit that our own behaviors may have contributed to the current state of unrest in our hearts and our souls. Ask ourselves daily what kind of humans we want to be as an example to future generations.
We preach hatred and wonder why our children hate. We preach violence as a means to an end, and stand in horror as our children become violent. We blame everyone else and refuse to take our own actions into consideration. What kind of lessons are we teaching the world about whom We the People truly are?
We are patriotic, pragmatic, compassionate, empathetic, wise, and proud as a culture. However, we need to note that we are also angry, afraid, unaware, warlike, and held captive by our own insecurities. We cannot and should not judge others. We need to remember that we are a melting-pot of culture and experiences, and this is the United States that our founding fathers hoped we would become.
WE must Strive to do Better! Much LOVE and Light on Your Journey…. JoJo
Written by Christina Sarich, Natural Society, June 17, 2014 – http://naturalsociety.com/successfully-overturning-feds-hemp-ban/Growing hemp without a federal permit has been banned since the 1970s, but regulations and restrictions on the sale of Cannabis sativa as a drug began as early as 1619. It is currently classified as a controlled substance on Schedule I, just like marijuana and heroin, even though you couldn’t get high off of hemp if you smoked a truckload of it. Hemp cultivation is currently only allowed in pilot studies in a few states as part of the latest federal farm bill, but its widespread cultivation in still illegal. Why?The Michigan House overwhelmingly passed a bill which allows industrial hemp research, and Kentucky got their seeds back from a Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) seizure which took place when it was accepting delivery from Italy for pilot studies planned throughout the state with over two dozen different Universities participating in cultivating strains for commercial and industrial use.Furthermore, the South Carolina House gave final approval to a bill that authorizes the cultivation and production of industrial hemp within the state, effectively nullifying the unconstitutional federal ban. Tennessee also has a bill up for review, (HB 1392), which would allow hemp cultivation in the state. It has already passed through a House subcommittee vote.Twelve states currently have laws allowing hemp production via the farm bill allowances – California, Colorado, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oregon, Utah, Vermont, and West Virginia — according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.Read: What You Should Know About the Hemp AmendmentThe Many Uses of HempSo why has hemp been banned all this time? It is simply a threat to oil companies, tobacco companies, pharmaceutical companies, alcohol companies, and many chemical corporations. Some have likened the nation-wide allowance of hemp and marijuana cultivation as being equivalent to an industrial atomic bomb. The plant is so useful, it could wipe out entire industries.Hemp can be used for so many things, including:1. Clothing and textiles – Hemp has been utilized since 8000 BC. It is an incredibly strong fiber which grows quickly and needs less water and no pesticides. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson grew hemp, but this is often glossed over by modern-day government. Hemp paper could also replace our dependency on trees, and counteract clear-cutting which is eliminating our forests faster than we can replace them.2. Hemp can replace toxic plastics that are currently made from petroleum and contain numerous carcinogenic ingredients. Hemp bottles, for example, would be 100% non-toxic and 100% biodegradable, as well as recyclable.3. Hemp oil and hemp seed have tremendous use as both a food source and as a medicinal supplement; also as a form of fuel – Hemp oil can also be used in soaps, shampoos, lotions, and other cosmetics without adding toxic chemicals. It can moisturize the skin, be used as a cooking oil, and even as a biodiesel fuel. Some say that Henry Ford and the inventor of the diesel engine, Rudolf Diesel, never intended to use oil as fuel, but actually hemp. You can bet the oil companies have made sure that hasn’t happened.4. Hemp provides great building materials – Companies in the Netherlands and Ireland are doing incredible things with hemp. There is a wonderful video that explains how to utilize hempcrete, a sustainable building alternative to concrete.In much the same manner that oil companies have blocked solar and wind power, Monsanto and Dow have blocked organic farming and independent studies proving GMOs are toxic. Industry special interests have kept hemp from Americans – but no longer. We’re overturning the federal ban one state at a time.Other Popular Stories:Limiting DEA’s Reach: House Votes on Bills Allowing States to Grow Hemp W/O InterferenceKentucky Sues DEA to Free 250 Lbs of Impounded Hemp Seeds: WinFederal Customs Stops 250 Pound Legal Hemp Seed Shipment from Italy Due to Government OverreachWhy the U.S. Should Legalize Industrial HempWhat You Should Know About the Hemp Amendment, Even if You Don’t Use MarijuanaFarmers Begin Planting Hemp Under New Colorado Hemp LegalizationRead more: http://naturalsociety.com/successfully-overturning-feds-hemp-ban/
More prominent evidence continues to arise on the falsification of peer-review studies, ghostwriting pharmaceutical studies by academics; especially related to vaccines, thimerosal and autism. The close coupling of commerce and academia is largely to blame, but what is clear is that the scientific enterprise is no longer built on a foundation of trust.
Just months after U.S. Congressman Bill Posey compared the Center for Disease Control (CDC)’s vaccine safety studies to the SEC’s Bernie Madoff scandal, malfeasance in the CDC’s studies of thimerosal-containing vaccines has, for the first time, been documented in peer-reviewed scientific literature.
165 Studies Have Found Thimerosal to be Harmful
While the CDC states on its website that “low doses of thimerosal in vaccines do not cause harm, and are only associated with minor local injection site reactions like redness and swelling at the injection site,” the journal BioMed Research International now provides direct evidence that the CDC’s safety assurances about the mercury-containing preservative are not fact-based, according to the article’s lead author,Brian Hooker, PhD.
What most people do not realize is although the FDA gave a two year deadline to remove thimerosal from vaccines after the deadly neurotoxin was banned in 1999, they continue to appear in vaccine formulations to this day.
Factually, Thimerosal is a mercury-containing compound that is a known human carcinogen, mutagen, teratogen and immune-system disruptor at levels below 1 part-per-million, and a compound to which some humans can have an anaphylactic shock reaction. It is also a recognized reproductive and fetal toxin with no established toxicologically safe level of exposure for humans.
There are dozens of scientific inquiries and studies on the adverse effects of thimerosal, including gastrointestinal abnormalities and immune system irregularities.
The BioMed Research International paper opens by citing over 165 studies that have found Thimerosal to be harmful, including 16 studies that had reported outcomes in human infants and children of death, acrodynia, poisoning, allergic reaction, malformations, auto-immune reaction, Well’s syndrome, developmental delay and neurodevelopmental disorders including tics, speech delay, language delay, ADHD and autism. These findings by multiple independent research groups over the past 75+ years have consistently found thimerosal to be harmful. “Substantial scientific evidence exists and has existed for many years that the vaccine ingredient thimerosal is a developmental neurotoxin” says George Lucier, former Associate Director of the National Toxicology Program.
Studies showing harm from thimerosal sharply contradict published outcomes of six CDC coauthored and sponsored papers the very studies that CDC relies upon to declare that thimerosal is “safe” for use in infant and maternal vaccines. Dr. Hooker, biochemist and vaccine industry watchdog, said of the six CDC studies, “Each of these papers is fatally flawed from a statistics standpoint and several of the papers represent issues of scientific malfeasance. For example, important data showing a relationship between thimerosal exposure and autism are withheld from three of the publications (Price et al. 2010, Verstraeten et al. 2003 and Madsen et al. 2003). This type of cherry-picking of data by the CDC in order to change the results of important research studies to support flawed and dangerous vaccination policies should not be tolerated.”
More researchers are finding equally finding distrust in that their colleagues have gathered data carelessly, have used inappropriate analytic and statistical techniques, have reported their results inaccurately, and have treated the work of other researchers with disrespect.
With this trust now misplaced and the professional standards of science being violated, researchers are not just personally affronted–they are feeling that the base of their profession has been undermined. This is impacting relationship between science and society.
More research in the area of vaccination and thimerosal is representing a “significant departure from accepted practices” and has been “committed intentionally, knowingly, and recklessly” with a preponderance of evidence which is the hallmark of misconduct.
Dr. Boyd Haley, international expert in mercury toxicity and a co-author of the recently published paper said “There is no doubt that authorities in the CDC have initiated and participated in a cover-up of vaccine-induced damage from thimerosal to our children—-and this I consider criminal.” The paper, “Methodological Issues and Evidence of Malfeasance in Research Purporting to Show Thimerosal in Vaccines is Safe,” was published on June 6 and contains eight pages of evidence that the CDC has had knowledge of the vaccine preservative’s neurological risks, yet continues to cover them up.
The paper concludes, “five of the publications examined in this review were directly commissioned by the CDC, raising the possible issue of conflict of interests or research bias, since vaccine promotion is a central mission of the CDC. Conceivably, if serious neurological disorders are found to be related to Thimerosal in vaccines, such findings could possibly be viewed as damaging to the vaccine program.”
Dr. Hooker has submitted over 100 FOIA requests to the CDC over the past 10 years and has amassed thousands of pages of documents showing malfeasance in the CDC’s vaccine safety program. Hooker revealed that one CDC document quoted a top official instructing CDC employees to “Review all correspondences and documents to see if there is ‘foreseeable harm’ to the agency if they were released” so the documents could be redacted by CDC attorneys prior to release.
In late 2013, a notice by the Health and Human Services Department was given in that the Office of Research Integrity (ORI) has confirmed findings on Dr. Dong-Pyou Han, former Research Assistant Professor, Department of Biomedical Services, ISU, who engaged in research misconduct in research supported by National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), National Institutes of Health (NIH).
ORI and ISU found that Dr. Dong-Pyou Han falsified results in research to develop a vaccine against human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV-1) by intentionally spiking samples of rabbit sera with antibodies to provide the desired results.
It’s one of dozens of findings that are now being exposed by such agencies.
Barry Segal, founder of the Focus Autism Foundation said, “We are in the process of exposing what may be the biggest federal scandal ever with immense damage to our economy and our people, especially our children who are the future of our country. Their health has been compromised by mercury in vaccines. We need Congress to take action now. Thimerosal must be banned.”
More than 33% researchers are now engaged in at least one behavior judged (by university compliance officers) to be “sanctionable” offenses, however official estimates may be much lower than actual incidents.
Researchers conducting studies in vaccination are now routinely:
– Falsifying/fabricating data or results
– Selectively withholding data that contradict their research
– Misusing the data of others
– Presenting data in a sloppy or deceptive manner
– Failing to maintain accurate laboratory notebooks
– Sabotaging research of others
– Misusing research funds or university resources
– Developing inappropriate research/industry relationships for personal gain
– Failing to comply with federal and/or Rutgers guidelines for the treatment of human or animal subjects
Until more accountability is taken for potential violations of scientific standards, including researchers examining their own biases and motivations and their ability to remain objective, we may never know how many vaccine safety studies in the last several decades have been falsified.

This how-to list will give you a reference point for exercises and ways to help with pineal gland decalcification. Your pineal gland, also referred to as the 3rd eye, is a small endocrine gland in the geometric center part of your brain. It is home to the ajna (brow) chakra and its energy is of psychic and spiritual phenomena….
This march may well have been another one of those “lightning strikes“. It’s clear to me, that these GMO “giants” are hearing (and fearing) the will of the people.
It is clear that we have just witnessed the largest single worldwide protest against a company and their products. What is also clear is the major public disgust for anything bearing the words ‘GMO.’ Monsanto’s only refuge lies in massively funded mouthpieces in the forms of news clips and certain public figures, combined with a legal stranglehold on scientific research and medical inquiries. Yet in the age of information, their propaganda is laughable. Meanwhile the townspeople gather, having replaced their torches and pitchforks with signs and banners. We see this time the battle being fought from a place of higher consciousness. Our weapons of choice are the devastating methods of non-compliance, civil disobedience and free enterprise. It appears while the smoke is still clearing from what may be the final March Against Monsanto, momentum favors the people.
Tipping points are historically difficult to pinpoint or predict. They often manifest in the form of some event or consciousness action that ignites the minds of the public in a “now I can see” moment. During that exact second, and no sooner, a mass movement locks into a single idea that once cemented in stone, will never die. We are at such a point. The once obscured battle lines in the sand have now been illuminated with neon signs, doused with gasoline and set ablaze in our collective DNA. Into the future we march knowing only one thing clearly, genetically modified food will not be a part of it.
Years of brave activism and mobilized populations of unhappy mothers, disenfranchised farmers and educated consumers have brought us to this point. Surging forward comes the real work with instant rewards. Led by the recent examples of Mike Adam’s Forensic Food Lab and the continuous work of the Food Babe’s army going mainstream, it is clear that companies fear our voice and will instantly comply to the people’s wishes. How do we keep the heat on Monsanto? The company’s actions have shown us that their plan will move forward at all costs. So it is up to us to take the reigns and destroy their market share by voting with our dollars.
The Battle Plan
You money is your megaphone, your soapbox and your most important vote. This is a fact cemented in the pages of history’s empty political promises and arrogant corporate attitudes. We have always been taught throughout life that change would require a struggle. Yet, regaining your right to be healthy, eat healthy and live absent from the constant assault of weaponizied food is perhaps the most energizing ‘struggle’ you could engage in. Plus it’s a real community builder!
Know Your Farmer
Most independent farmers these days struggle to make a living unless the are subsidized by Monsanto, Dow, et al. That is why supporting those farmers that choose to ‘go it alone’ and use organic methods and non-gm seed is now vital. Learn who those individuals/families are and support them. Now is the time. Evey dollar in their pocket is one taken directly from the ‘GMO machine.’
Grow Your Own
This is the best option and truly gives a win-win. By growing your own you will knowwhere your food is coming from, that it’s organic, non-gmo and free. All are luxuries that are slipping through the hands of everyone on this planet. For the non-gardeners, gather neighbors and utilize the monocropping technique. This is accomplished by having each participant grow one crop. You can see in a neighborhood of ten participants there would be greater variety and more yield than any one individual could do alone. In addition, you only have to specialize in learning to grow and harvest one type of plant.
Keep The Social Media Heat
We have won the hearts and minds of the people. While plowing through this tipping point, it’s important to keep circulating information via all social media platforms. When petitions become large enough, the right people listen. Since our wishes have continually fallen upon the deaf, unempathetic ears of Monsanto and the man who calls himself president, it’s time to start focusing on smaller targets. Individual companies and suppliers can be effected. Subway, Whole Foods, McDonald’s, Jell-O etc have all recently witnessed this first hand. Pressure put on them via social media, petitions and emails to remove GMO in large numbers will serve to disrupt profit margins, take over board meetings and steer internal policy. In a beautiful twist of fate, those companies then join our sounding board pointed at Monsanto et al. Do you think Monsanto could ignore scores of large corporations terminating business with it because they find themselves no longer profitable from a simple social media campaign or collective movement to boycott GMO’s? Game over!
