Graham Hancock : Magicians of the Gods

https://www.goodreads.com/author/quotes/18520.Graham_Hancock

“If ever a society could be said to meet all the mythological criteria of the next lost civilization – a society that ticks all the boxes – is it not obvious that it is our own? Our pollution and neglect of the majestic garden of the earth, our rape of its resources, our abuse of the oceans and the rainforests, our fear, hatred and suspicion of one another multiplied by a hundred bitter regional and sectarian conflicts, our consistent track record of standing by and doing nothing while millions suffer, our ignorant, narrow-minded racism, our exclusivist religions, our forgetfulness that we are all brothers and sisters, our bellicose chauvinism, the dreadful cruelties that we indulge in, in the name of nation, or faith, or simple greed, our obsessive, competitive, ego-driven production and consumption of material goods and the growing conviction of many, fuelled by the triumphs of materialist science, that matter is all there is – that there is no such thing as spirit, that we are just accidents of chemistry and biology – all these things, and many more, in mythological terms at least, do not look good for us.”  ~Graham Hancock

This is the remarkable Graham Hancock’s latest & newest presentation. An utterly astonishing ‘must-see’ presentation… He reviews his recent discoveries, as well as an opening discussion (with film) of his ‘debate’ with Zahi Hawass in Egypt. Hancock is a true champion of bringing credible ‘alternative’ views of human history on the planet. Academically researched and articulately presented by one of the sharpest minds in modern study, his evidence is quite compelling, beautifully structured, supported & defended in a credible manner. Hancock is a true pioneer, and his courageous body of work is changing the paradigm by formidably challenging the ‘old guard’ of main stream resistance to astonishing evidence of advanced civilizations of the past.

In The Future, Our Attention Will Be Sold

http://markmanson.net/attention

The problem is not the technology itself, it’s how we choose to use the technology. Is it serving us or are we serving it?

These are the new challenges new generations must face. Our grandparents had to learn to master their time and their energy in order to take advantage of the labor economy. Our parents had to master their minds and their problem solving in order to take advantage of the knowledge economy. We must learn to master our focus and our self-awareness to properly take advantage of the attention economy.

Limitless access to knowledge brings limitless opportunity. But only to those who learn to manage the new currency: their attention. In the new economy, the most valuable asset you can accumulate may not be money, may not be wealth, may not even be knowledge, but rather, the ability to control your own attention, and to focus.

Because until you are able to limit your attention, until you are able to turn away, at will, from all of the shiny things and nipple slips, until you are able to consciously choose what has value to you and what does not, you and I and everyone else will continue to be served up garbage indefinitely. And it will not get better, it will get worse.

In the future, your attention will be sold. And it may be that the only people able to capitalize, are the people that can control their own.”

FULL MOON + SOLSTICE – June 20th 2016

“Full Moon is paired within 12 hours with the powerful point of solstice boosting both their energies… That’s astrological gold! …

We have great opportunity to turn this summer time frame into preparation for major growth and movement in our ability to align our hearts, our lives, our vision, our thoughts with Spirit and center our selves in true power like never before.

We must strengthen our personal and collective containers to receive these gifts; otherwise, we cannot hold the increased energies coming our way…

Saturn wants us to show up, do the work, accept the limitations, challenges, or cosmic reprimands, and put into demolition anything that just isn’t working and is no longer in line with what we want to embody

Jupiter rules this Full Sagittarius Moon so the message is set your sights on where you want to end up and examine and root out dogma, judgment, and fearful prejudices of all kinds within yourself

Solstice is such a magnificent, powerful time; engage it with presence and gratitude and reap the rewards.”
