How to Save the Planet According to the World’s Greatest Minds

Discovering More Humane Ways of Being

We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if mankind is to survive. ~ Albert Einstein

If you turn on the news, the human species seems to be at a crisis point. Poverty, racism, political division, ecological destruction, social instability and other seemingly ‘unsolvable’ problems appear to be getting worse. And yet, when walking in a forest or looking up at the night sky, there is a sense that we live in a Universe of great balance, mystery, and beauty.

The wise among our species have repeatedly offered very simple solutions to humanity’s difficulties. Walt Whitman and Van Gogh were overwhelmed by the beauty that surrounds us and sought to share that in their poetry and paintings. The Dalai Lama has often said that we just need to prioritize peace, gratitude, love, and wisdom. That the human family’s problems are caused by closed hearts and minds and will be solved as more and more of us open them. Could it be that simple?

Cycles of Abuse and Control

Meet Stan:

Stan’s boss spent the night drinking.  He was depressed and hurt because his wife left him.

The next morning when Stan got to work, his hungover and miserable boss made his day hell.  Criticizing his work, moving up deadlines, forcing him to work the weekend and all around being cruel in his tone.

That night when Stan got home from work he took out his frustrations on his wife.  He began to criticize her every action, and nothing she said or did was good enough.  His tone with her was pure venom.

Drug Cop Who Spent 14 Years Undercover Tells Truth About the Drug War

Yet another police officer is speaking out against the drug war, this time in the United Kingdom. Former officer Neil Woods worked as an undercover drug cop for 14 years, infiltrating some of the most violent gangs in Britain only to learn his tactics were worsening the drug epidemic. Now, he advocates ending the drug war and decriminalizing drugs as he admits his own role in fueling violence and the proliferation of narcotics.

Woods recently spoke with the Independent to make his case and recount the struggles he faced enforcing the British government’s drug war. He was first enlisted by the Home Office to tackle the crack cocaine epidemic in the early 1990s, an effort that apparently ‘pleased the crown.’

4 Things You Need to Know About Anarchy

“The most useful piece of learning for the uses of life is to unlearn what is untrue.” ~Antisthenes

Anarchy is often a confusing term to most people, but it needn’t be. It simply means no masters, no rulers, the absence of political authority. Unfortunately, most people think it means chaos and disorder. This is due, in no small part, to statist propaganda and a kind of Orwellian doublespeak that keeps the masses ignorant and confused. It’s also due to a simple misunderstanding about the human condition. Most people assume, either due to cultural conditioning or political brainwashing, that they need to be ruled over, forgetting the very obvious fact that people are fallible, including the people who would rule. They fall victim to the classic logical fallacy-appeal to authority; while also getting caught up in a vicious tautological reasoning – people are bad therefore they need to be ruled by people are bad therefore they need to be ruled by people are bad…on and on, ad infinitum and ad nauseam. It’s all psychological. But people don’t need rulers, they need leaders.

Rumors of the “USA Republic”– What It Means, Actually

Regarding the “Republic” and its “return to a gold standard” and other rumors —-this is all “internal domestic” reshuffling of the “United States” and its corporations. Strictly speaking has nothing to do with us or with our states of the Union.

Think of it this way— you hire a lawn care company to take care of your grass and hedges and tree trimming, etc., They incorporate (1868) —- no big deal so far as you are concerned. They spud off some subsidiaries (municipal governments, 1878)—- and again, no big deal in your view. Who cares how the lawn care company decides to organize itself, so long as the work gets done at a price you can afford? Right?

Stop Wasting Energy on Negative Thoughts

Wandering Thoughts

Our minds get side tracked so easily. One small thought can take us on a journey into the past or into the future. It is hard for the mind to stay in the moment, the now.

The mind elaborates, embellishes, exaggerates, distorts, assumes and can take us away from the truth of a situation.

It can invent all sorts of stories and mischief around quite harmless incidents that on reflection have a perfectly logical explanation.

Add emotions to the mix and chaos ensues.

Our past fears and anxiety’s can distort truth beyond recognition. We use our past feelings and emotions to make sense of new experiences.

6 Things You Lose When You Become Spiritually Awakened

An awakened mind allows you to show admiration for those who do well and strive to follow in their footsteps. It also helps to remove any malicious or jealousy and appreciate the accomplishments of others.

As we grow, become more aware, and love, our thoughts and actions change as well. This is not only due to our goals changing but the resources we draw on become more productive. As we ‘wake’ to the world as it truly is, the truth of it all changes us from the core outward. We are till human so we still experience and project negativity, but the magnitude and length of time being negative changes.

Bloodline of the Holy Grail — The Hidden Lineage of Jesus Revealed

Today we shall embark upon the time-honoured Quest for the Holy Grail. Some have called it the Ultimate Quest, but the Christian Church has condemned it as a heresy.

A Christian heresy is described as ‘an opinion which is contrary to the orthodox dogma of the Christian bishops’ and, in this regard, those other quests which comprise much of today’s scientific and medical research are equally heretical.

The word ‘heresy’ is, in essence, nothing more than a derogatory label – a tag used by a fearful Church establishment that has long sought to maintain control of society through fear of the unknown.
