Neil Kramer : The Power of Peace

http://neilkramer.com/the-power-of-peace-with-regina-meredith/

Neil Kramer talks to Regina Meredith to discuss ‘The Power Of Peace.’

Regina writes: “While we continue to tear back the curtain of conspiracy, and dig under the rocks of suppressed information, we are often missing the obvious – how to craft the most beautiful and meaningful life possible. In my conversation with spiritual philosopher, Neil Kramer, we delve into the most basic of subjects – peace and will. What does peace actually mean and what is required to establish it at the core of our lives? What kind of strength does genuine peace bring? With a strong background in Hermetics, Neil shares his wisdom in his typically clear and high overview of what it means to live a substantial and beautiful life.”’

“The consensus view is generally wrong… whether we’re looking at NASA, whether we’re looking at science or religion or culture or politics or food, you come to a point where you realize that everything that we’ve been taught in the mainstream is garbage; you have to wipe that away and start again. And that’s the point where humility is necessary.

So, you can’t proceed down this path to equilibrium if you’re full of doctrine and dogma… You can’t do that, you have to say: I am confident enough as a spiritual entity, a spiritual human being, a spiritual man to say — I don’t know what I am, I don’t know what I’m doing, I don’t know what this means, and I’m okay with that. And at that point… something opens and wisdom comes inside…

Wisdom is totally experiential and it will only come in it’s pure form to the man or woman who has found a good measure of equilibrium. So, you can test somebody’s wisdom by the amount of equilibrium that they embody…

So if I think of the great wise elders in my life, whether they’re 25 years old or 85 years old, it makes no difference, they all have a measure of equilibrium that they have earned and brought about and crafted within themselves… The person of distinction who has made themselves substantial says: Nobody can make me feel anything. My feeling, my contact with reality, is mine and there can be no outside influence on that, unless I give my consent to it.” ~Neil Kramer

The War on Men

“There is something sinister taking place: a giant reeducation campaign aimed at turning boys and young men into total pussies.

Not only are we under chemical assault from plastic products and foods that lower testosterone, we’re mass unwitting participants in a huge social engineering experiment based around vilifying masculinity and demoralizing men, and the #MeToo Movement has been co-opted to serve that agenda.

What kind of warped scheme needs to dilute or destroy masculinity and traditional gender roles to succeed? One that seeks to completely annihilate the fundamental structure of western society so the annihilators can completely remake it in their own image.

This is about the pursuit of raw power. This is Marxism re-branded. Identity politics. The very ideology that belittles and denigrates men, particularly white men, is just a new form of an old Marxist trick; Divide and Conquer

These postmodernists are so pathological, so deranged, they have convinced themselves that fundamental biological science is a grand conspiracy invented by the patriarchy, and now they’re going to convince everyone else by law, by force, by silencing dissent, and by mass indoctrination. They are literally rebelling against reality. They’ve declared war on logic…

We need to reject the collectivist tyranny that because some men do evil things, all men need to bear the burden of evil.” ~Paul Joseph Watson

Stare into the Lights, My Pretties

http://truthstreammedia.com/2017/12/29/stare-lights-pretties/

“We live in a world of screens. More of us would know this, if we look up, and look around. The screens are everywhere, pervasive: fingers that are glued to the screen which are glued to the eyes which are glued to the screen. We use them for work, play. But it’s much more than that. The screens use us, too. How did we get here? And where’s this journey leading us? What does that even look like? And is it what we want? Is this culture’s technology changing us and our societies for the better? Does it empower all of us—like it claims to—or does it only empower a select few at the expense of the many? What’s the price we pay to live in this pervasive electronic world?

This era is unprecedented, and perhaps never before has technology been so prolific and shaped our lives so intimately. But there’s a dark side we don’t talk about. Why is that? Is it because we’re too busy being glued to the screen? Why do we shy away from questions about our collective addiction? What’s lurking under the surface?

Could it be that with this era, the stakes have also never been so high that we’ve got it all wrong?”

Hacking Into Your Happy Chemicals: Dopamine, Serotonin, Endorphins, & Oxytocin

http://theutopianlife.com/2014/10/14/hacking-into-your-happy-chemicals-dopamine-serotonin-endorphins-oxytocin/

“Dopamine, Serotonin, Oxytocin, and Endorphins are the quartet responsible for your happiness. Many situations can trigger these neurotransmitters, but instead of being in the passenger seat, there are ways you can intentionally cause them to flow.

Being in a positive state has significant impact on your motivation, productivity, and wellbeing. Here are some simple ways to hack into your positive neurochemicals:

Dopamine

Dopamine motivates you to take action toward your goals and gives you a surge of reinforcing pleasure when achieving them. Procrastination, self-doubt, and lack of enthusiasm are linked with low levels of dopamine…

Break big goals down into little pieces. Rather than only allowing your brain to celebrate when you’ve hit the big finish line, you can create a series of little finish-lines for frequent dopamine release. And it’s crucial to actually celebrate—buy a bottle of wine, or head to your favorite restaurant whenever you meet a small goal…

Serotonin

Serotonin flows when you feel significant or important. Loneliness and depression are present when serotonin is absent…

Reflecting on your past achievements allows your brain to re-live the experience. Your brain has trouble telling the difference between what is real and what is imagined, so it produces serotonin in both cases. Gratitude practices are popular for this reason, they are reminders and mental pictures of all the good things you’ve experienced. If you need a serotonin boost during a stressful day, take a few moments to reflect on your past achievements and victories…

Oxytocin

The release of oxytocin creates intimacy, trust, and strengthens relationships. It’s released by men and women during orgasm, and by mothers during childbirth and breastfeeding… Oxytocin is the glue that binds together healthy relationships.

Often referred to as “the cuddle hormone,” a simple way to keep oxytocin flowing is to give someone a hug. Dr. Paul Zak explains that inter-personal touch not only raises oxytocin, but reduces cardiovascular stress and improves the immune system…

Endorphins

Endorphins are released in response to pain and stress, and helps to alleviate anxiety. The surging “second wind” and euphoric “runners high” when running are a result of endorphins. Similar to morphine, it acts as an analgesic and sedative, diminishing your perception of pain.

Along with exercise, laughter is one of the easiest ways to induce endorphin release…

Aromatherapies: the smell of vanilla and lavender has been linked with the production of endorphins. Studies have shown that dark chocolate and spicy foods will cause your brain to release endorphins.”

They’re Trying to Ban Another Harmless Plant [Kratom] That Helps People

http://truthstreammedia.com/

“What’s more of a health crisis to the American people? 15 people who mixed a plant [Kratom] with other drugs, anti-depressants and pharmaceuticals and they died of a comminatory effect, or over a hundred thousand people who died taking legal drugs as directed, or the thousands upon thousands of people who die every single year from prescription pain-killer overdoses? What’s the bigger crisis here?

The reason that this is happening right now… is because of this: Between 2008 and 2016, pharmaceutical companies synthesized three different opioids from Kratom – the ‘dangerous horrible drug’ the DEA wants to add to Schedule 1 and the FDA wants to ban. It’s so ‘dangerous’ and so ‘horrible’ that pharmaceutical companies synthesized it and patented the synthesized alkaloids from this plant, and that is why they want to ban it, because they know that people aren’t going to buy the synthesized pharmaceutical version when they can get the real, actual, natural plant.

This is disgusting, and it should piss everyone off… If we become a country that allows another harmless plant that actually helps people to be added to a schedule where they can ban it and put people in jail for this, to try and force everyone to take poisonous pharmaceutical concoctions, then we really are a country of total slaves…

The bottom line here is that they’re trying to ban another harmless leaf. They want to take away the natural substances so that you can have your legally approved fake one. The bans are not about keeping anyone safe. If the system wanted to keep people safe, they would restrict the prescription drugs that have killed hundreds of thousands of people in this country. It’s about insuring that people will have no natural alternatives to healing themselves except for giant pharmaceutical corporations who synthesize their products to ensure addiction and death. The war on drugs is a war on us.

To leave your comments on Kratom and the FDA’s puke-inducing level of hypocrisy, call them at 888-INFO-FDA (888-463-6332) and dial 3, then 4.” ~Melissa Dykes
