ZEN MONASTERY LESSONS ON LIVING HERE AND NOW

http://liveanddare.com/zen-monastery-lessons/

“[O]ne of the hundreds of meditation benefits is developing equanimity, which is the capacity to maintain internal calmness and composure in all moments, instead of being swayed by the opposites. To meet pleasure and pain, praise and blame, good and bad luck, with the same state of mind. This virtue will give you almost “superhuman” powers of clarity and strength through challenges that make most people experience confusion, anxiety or stress.

No matter what is happening outside yourself, or even inside yourself, you have the ability to meet life with presence of spirit and wisdom. You don’t need to be a puppet of your thoughts and feelings – they only have the power you give them. For this truth to be your own, you need the courage and discipline to be present, mindful and open throughout all challenges in your life. And to realize that how you react to events is a choice – however automatic it may be – and not a necessity. You have the power to change it.”

Truth About 9/11 Bush Crimes Hidden in Comedy Central Sketch

“[I]t seems this ridiculous take on a parallel universe ruled by cats is about as close as anyone will get to an official explanation about the truth of 9/11 – a subject most are too wary of confronting outside of satire and humor.

This is an alternate history of life after the JFK assassination that – far from being goofy and made up – is strangely “exactly like ours.”’

10 Reasons to Consider a Plant-Based Diet – For Yourself and the Planet

http://www.richroll.com/blog/10-reasons-to-consider-a-plant-based-diet/

“Our planetary problems are perilous and profound. The U.S. is the most prosperous nation on Earth, yet we have never been more unhealthy. The standard American diet isn’t just making us sick. And it isn’t just inefficient.

It’s outdated tech.

It’s time for a food system reboot. The good news is that version 2.0 is a pretty elementary, albeit profound, upgrade.

Adopting a plant-based, or at least plant-centric approach to your plate is the single most powerful and positively impactful choice you can make as a conscious, compassionate consumer. A choice that will help prevent and reverse disease; reduce your carbon footprint; and preserve the planet for our children and animal friends alike.”

How Animal Agriculture is Contributing to Planetary Environmental Collapse

http://wakeup-world.com/2015/08/13/how-animal-agriculture-is-contributing-to-planetary-environmental-collapse/

“Chances are, if you’re concerned about the health of the planet, you’ve most likely come across the following facts and figures: On average, vegans save 1100 gallons of water, 45 pounds of grain, 30 square feet of forest and 20 pounds of CO2 equivalent every day.

But what you may not realize is that animal agriculture is responsible for 18% of greenhouse gas emissions, more than the combined total of all worldwide transportation — including cars, trucks, planes, trains and ships. So we can drive our hybrid cars and bicycle to our heart’s content, recycle religiously and conserve electricity like crazy, but if we consume meat, dairy or eggs, we’re still making a major contribution to the world’s environmental crisis…

[I]f we truly care about the environment — and want to take action that has immediate impact— reducing or eliminating our reliance on animal products is the most significant step we can take.”

“You cannot be an environmentalist and eat meat.”

Don’t Be Fooled By the Political Game : The Illusion of Freedom in America

http://www.infowars.com/dont-be-fooled-by-the-political-game-the-illusion-of-freedom-in-america/

“It really doesn’t matter what you call them — Republicans, Democrats, the one percent, the elite, the controllers, the masterminds, the shadow government, the police state, the surveillance state, the military industrial complex—so long as you understand that while they are dealing the cards, the deck will always be stacked in their favor.

Incredibly, no matter how many times we see this played out, Americans continue to naively buy into the idea that politics matter, as if there really were a difference between the Republicans and Democrats (there’s not).

As if Barack Obama proved to be any different from George W. Bush (he has not). As if Hillary Clinton’s values are any different from Donald Trump’s (with both of them, money talks). As if when we elect a president, we’re getting someone who truly represents “we the people” rather than the corporate state (in fact, in the oligarchy that is the American police state, an elite group of wealthy donors is calling the shots).

Politics is a game, a joke, a hustle, a con, a distraction, a spectacle, a sport, and for many devout Americans, a religion. In other words, it’s a sophisticated ruse aimed at keeping us divided and fighting over two parties whose priorities are exactly the same.”
~John W. Whitehead

“The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls. They got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls…” ~George Carlin

“A NASA camera aboard the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) satellite captured a unique view of the moon as it moved in front of the sunlit side of Earth last month. The series of test images shows the fully illuminated “dark side” of the moon that is never visible from Earth.”

Paladin : An Open Letter to the Elders

http://projectcamelotportal.com/blog-archive/77-paladin/2625-an-open-letter-to-the-elders-2

“The only thing standing between the truth and the cabal is the paid off, owned, whore media. Destroy the protective propaganda force field around them and the ground troops will handle the rest. They’ll be defenseless in their quest to continue the manipulation of the masses and the main reason they’re able to accomplish this is because they control the information flow and its nothing but lies and cover-ups. You really don’t think they pay their liars in the mainstream media multi millions per year just to give us the news do you?

If you reveal the truth, the people will respond and they will do it swiftly. Release the technology and you start the process of evolution again as the prison planet the cabal maintains separates each of us from our true purpose of being on this planet and that is to evolve our higher self. After thousands of years of existence, if not more, we’re still trying to just survive….rather than pursuing the loving spirituality that resonates within us all and should be the objective of every civilization.

Along with releasing the technology, release the KNOWLEDGE too. The knowledge sequestered in the bowels of the Vatican, the knowledge of our universe and the knowledge accumulated throughout time. This includes our off world friends, visitors and enemies.”
