(Dr. Wayne D. Dyer, "The Shift")
"Thoroughly unprepared we take the step into the afternoon of life. We take this step with the false presupposition that our truths and ideals will serve us as hitherto. But we cannot live the afternoon of life according to the program of the morning. For what was great in the morning, will be little at evening. And what in the morning was true, at evening will have become a lie."

I have been trying to remember if there was a specific moment in my life when I realized that our groceries in stores were not to be trusted. When did food become something other than food? Ingredient descriptions have become, almost entirely, chemical formulas, synthetic and, yes, even toxic, then all wrapped in plastic or placed in plastic containers which leak into food much like aluminum cans do. I began wondering what was still in the jar that was "free" of the main ingredients you would have expected, e.g., in fat-free "cream" cheese, un-sweet "sweets" and milk without lactose. Concurrently, people developed all kinds of allergies and immune deficiencies and digestive problems. I only know it was long before the invention of GMO's, which was preceded by the era of "smart foods," with certain medications or vitamins added, whether or not we needed or wanted those. Recently, I have heard such "foods" called "Fortified Foods" (Natural Awakenings Magazine of the Upstate, SC, February 2017, p. 17). They are said to reduce our need for nutritional supplements, but the source of the added nutrients--synthetic and isolated?--is unknown under such circumstances. They are also found in unnatural combinations with the food itself, despite much evidence of lessened or no health benefits when using nutrients in other than their natural occurrence. A modern-day commercial for One-A-Day Supplements makes it quite clear that even very health-conscious cooks and consumers no longer get the nutrients they need from food. However, the question, "Why?" or, "Why not?" is not being asked or addressed. Is the problem with seeds, soil, environment or with our own, altered digestive system? Could it be all of the above? The over-abundance of digestive aids and probiotic commercials, even targeting children already, would certainly point to something seriously wrong with food, eating and digesting. Upon investigation, we inevitably arrive at the man-made, genetical modification of much of today's foods (GMO's), as well as the unsustainable, most unnatural methods of agriculture and farming, with heavy reliance on use of chemicals to achieve crops. These chemicals, like the artificially added "nutrients," post hoc, infiltrate everything we eat--plant and animal sources alike. For starters, I would say that, if your body gives you signals that it doesn't want a particulr food item any longer, please consider to skip that item, instead of replacing it with a "free" version of itself. Body signals are naturally and ingeniously there for a good reason, i.e., in support of our life and health.
Following the research, soon one bubble of illusion after another begins to burst. We find that we have been equally betrayed by cosmetics, building materials, medicines and, increasingly, by harmful (subtle-energy/radiation) effects of modern techology. The drinking water is laced with massive amounts of fluoride and chlorine, and dry-clean chemicals, non-stick cookware and paints produce/contain toxins as well...poisions wherever we look! Man is no longer fighting against nature--which was never a good idea--but trying to survive his own inventions.
At some point, ca. ten years ago, I started to have dreams about tiny, colorful particles raining down on us from the sky. These dreams led me to much information about geo-engineering--the articificial manipulation of our weather and atmosphere, altering the jet stream, causing ozone depletion, droughts and floods, storms, snow and ice, and evern earth quakes. i learned that we absorb these miniscule, aerosol particles sprayed overhead, day and night, to achieve such manipulations, through skin and membranes and with every breath we take. This has been very silently ongoing before our very eyes for sixty or more years! I began noticing the strangest cloud formations, literally painted into the sky, shimmering in all kinds of colors when reflecting light from beneath or at an angle, and I observed the massive tree deaths all around me, and that my garden could no longer thrive. The horror in my soul is now complete: WHAT HAVE WE DONE??? WHAT HAVE WE TOLERATED AND CONDONED, unwittingly, and hailed as proud hallmarks of our civilization and way of life? Don't we see that our insides and the natural world around us are dying? Still, there are laws in place that prevent restrictions to corporate profit, even when those corporations produce nothing put poison! We ourselves have created a double-bind which locks us into further abuse and death, with both hands tied behind our backs, to do anything about it. Isn't this newsworthy and extraordinary? However, the daily news broadcast pictures of oh-so-beautiful (but toxic) sunsets in orange and purple, and of artificial clouds, even naming those new cloud formations, and they speak of "Mother Nature" with regards to snow storms, floods and blizzards, as well as the unnatural, extreme temperature fluctuations from one day to the next, which we now have gotten used to. Make no mistake: With the exception of the Northern Lights, perhaps, clouds are supposed to be white (not purple or blue), and skies are supposed to be blue (not pink and orange)! There are also still those who believe that outdoor, aerobic activities, like running or bicycling, are good for us, and we still call the chemical (ozone?) smell rolling in through the open window "fresh" air!
I am doubly concerned with much of the rhetoric in politics and news, focusing on anything but all this man-made destruction. Aren't we targeting the wrong terror, enemies and fears? In particular, all the artificial dichotomies created by public officials and the media (e.g., around wiretapping, transgender bathrooms, etc.), appear only as distractions from the sinister, much more pressing issue: WE ARE ALL WALKING THE GREEN MILE! So, dear reader, beware of being side-tracked by the public "issues of the day." Those are but diversions from all the real issues.
Under spiritual rule, we give our life energy to everything we repeatedly think, emote and talk about. Alas, we give our power increasingly to diversions and to the people behind those. We also give our energy to continued limelight and gaslighting by exactly those who thrive on having the spotlight on them. By feeding them with light, by means of our own energy, we make them more and more powerful.
At this moment, one can hardly have a conversation any more without mention of certain politicians and folks in power, in a gossipy and sensationalist kind of way. Folks, beware of which wolf we feed (in the native American fable), becauses that's the wolf who will win out. Let's refuse to enter into this misguided, unspiritual gossip and rhetoric, causing further division between people from which only the puppet maters benefit. Let's stick to the most pressing issue of CONTINUED LIFE OF EARTH AND NATURE, which we all share. Instead of rescuing certain politicians from their own, fabricated agendas, cover-ups of their errors and childish dramas, let's rescue ourselves from their mental/emotional grip and return to the only things that really matter: Our families, communities, healthy gardens, clean air, food and water and, above all, love and our love-ability.
This is not to say that we don't need initiatives. We need those more than ever, since our elected leaders continue to ignore or even perpetrate our collective dying. However, exercising our right to demonstrate and picket has now become a dangerous undertaking, under new rule of threatening incarceration to all who participate in an event that leads even to one aggressive incident. How is anyone to know beforehand what will happen, or if some violence may even be intentionally provoked? There is also the new prohibition for government scientists to provide answers to the public regarding the toxicity and extent of their programs that affect us all. DO YOU SEE WHERE THIS IS GOING? We have to take a good, long look at the clock and determine exactly what time it is and then become ingeniously creative and flexible in our approach. "Together" around particular areas of interests and skills, appears more promising than going solo, to become proactive and inspired toward a positive goal, rather than fighting against negativity. Let's turn a fight against a certain politician into a movement for life, for clean water, and for clean air. To this end, please go to the bottom of this article, view the suggested links and get involved.
Covertly, our leaders seem to be preparing for collapse, as the development of GMO's themselves demonstrates: Why develop geo-engineering-resistant seeds if there's, allegedly, no geo-engineering and impending food shortage as a result? Why forever increase geo-engineering efforts to mitigate or steer climate change, while denying that there is global warming? Why increase the military budget and build walls: Aren't these signs of increasing withdrawal inside one's own boundaries, arming heavily to guard what's left? Aren't the elimination of national oversight over and curbing of pollution, while returning to unlimited fracking and mining of natural resources, signs that an end is in sight, like saying, "What does it matter any more"? The same is true for ever-speedier approval of toxic medicines, with ever more devastating side-effects, and after but minimal testing, like saying, "Who cares if they kill or cripple, if we're all going down anyway."
However, on a positive note, on Iran's Revolution Day, we could see banners giving thanks to people from other countries who support Muslims and religious freedom, in general and in their countries. This means that our spiritual and humane actions and expressions on social media have gone a long way toward all-inclusiveness, peace and unity. These are the mental attitudes and actions which decrease divisiveness and hence hostility and, therefore, threats of terror and war. God--who understands and forgives all--is necessarily the most tolerant and patient of us all, showing that our spiritual development naturally goes from less to ever more inclusive attitudes. Let's not underestimate our power to unite, regardless of all the gossip and news drama of the hour. And unite we must, to collectively stop the bigger assaults on life on earth, on all species and on life support systems, globally.
