Congressional Reform Act of 2017
1. No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman / woman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they're out of office.
2. Congress (past, present, & future) participates in Social Security.
All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.
3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.
4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.
5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.
6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.
7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void effective 3/1/17. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen/women.

Love it. Where do I sign?

KRCG

JEFFERSON CITY —

In a free speech ruling that contradicts six other federal circuit courts, the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld a district court ruling that says Americans do not have a first amendment right to videotape the police, or any public official, in public.

The court of appeals filed the opinion July 25.

The case stemmed from a lawsuit brought by Matthew Akins of Columbia, who has had numerous run-ins with police as he attempted to videotape them pulling cars over and making arrests. Akins was typically standing on public property such as a street or sidewalk while videotaping the encounters. Akins was videotaping the encounters on behalf of a group called Citizens for Justice, which he founded in 2010.

According to his lawyer, Stephen Wyse of Columbia, Akins was threatened numerous times for his actions, his employer was hassled, and he was ordered to stop videotaping by police on several occasions. He had charges filed against him, many of which were later dropped, according to the Eighth Circuit ruling.

Akins sued Boone County Prosecutor Dan Knight and several Columbia police officers, citing violations of his First, Second, Fourth, and Fourteenth Amendment rights.

Judge Nanette Laughrey ruled that Akins, and by extension, any citizen or the press, has no right to record the activities of public officials on public property. The Eighth Circuit affirmed this ruling.

Wyse has filed a motion for the Eighth Circuit Court to reconsider its ruling. If it refuses, Wyse said he will petition the U.S. Supreme Court to hear an appeal the ruling this fall.

He said that right now, the seven states of the Eighth Circuit do not have the same first amendment rights that all other citizens enjoy. “The First Amendment is a core American value,” he said. “The right to free speech and a free press are central to our liberty and our ability to hold our government accountable.”

The National Press Photographers’ Association took exception to this story, posting this to it’s website:

“The 8th Circuit ruled on the case but not on the right to record police in public. On 8/2/16 the lower federal court only found that the plaintiff “has no constitutional right to videotape any public proceedings he wishes to.” She also cited a 2004 8th Circuit case holding that “Neither the public nor the media has a First Amendment right to videotape, photograph, or make audio recordings of government proceedings that are by law open to the public” (emphasis added). This is far different from the right to record police performing their official duties in a traditionally public forum (street or park) and only applies to the jurisdiction of the federal trial court not the full 8th Circuit. Akins is now seeking an en banc review or motion for rehearing of the 7/25/27 8th Circuit ruling which basically dealt with affirming the lower court’s decision to grant summary judgment to the defendants and also affirming the denial by the trial court judge of the motion for her to recuse herself from the case. The First, Third, Fifth, Seventh, Ninth and Eleventh Circuits have all ruled that the right to record police officers performing their official duties in a public place is clearly established which will negate a claim of qualified immunity by police.”

Columbia City Counselor Nancy Thompson says the original district court ruling has nothing to do with the public’s right to film public officials such as the police. However, she declined to comment further because the case is still pending.

KRCG stands by the facts of the story.

Azozeo's News-FEMA National Shelter System Database
« Reply #62 on: August 23, 2017, 09:44:23 AM »
http://www.theblackvault.com/documentarchive/fema-national-shelter-system-database-complete-list-70386-locations/



The Black Vault
Background

The FEMA National Shelter System is a coordinated nationwide database of emergency shelter information where thousands of profiles of potential shelter resources, as well as virtually any type of facility associated with the care of disaster survivors, are maintained. FEMA, working in partnership with the American Red Cross, used lessons learned to develop a new easy to use system that includes operational data to assist emergency management professionals in times of disaster and for planning purposes. The system has the ability to track virtually any type of facility used in response to disasters.

The new system also includes an enhanced GIS mapping function that will allow emergency management professionals to see in real time, shelter locations, critical infrastructure, flood plains, fault lines, and other geospatial elements.

Additionally, FEMA is working to ensure the system is interoperable with the Red Cross National Sheltering System and several other commercial emergency management programs, allowing data to be shared between systems, eliminating the need to enter data in multiple applications. This system is available to emergency management professionals with a demonstrated need for this information. Use of the system is free of charge and accessible from any internet connection, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

In addition to general population shelters, the system includes:

    Medical shelters, shelter-in-place locations (SIP)
    Household pet shelters, kitchens
    Points of Distribution (POD’s), warehouses
    Warming, cooling, and respite centers
    Embarkation, Debarkation, and Reception processing sites
    Any type of shelter or facility related to the management of the people affected by the
    operation.

Rare United Nations Warning—Signals Potential Civil Conflict In America

A UN Committee tasked with combatting racism on a global scale has issued an ultra rare “early warning” for the United States citing ‘alarming racism’ trends. This rare signal often preludes the potential for civil conflict.

In the past 10-years, the early warning has been issued in Burundi, Iraq, Ivory Coast, Kyrgyzstan and Nigeria.

The United Nations Committee on the Eliminations of Racial Discrimination has called on high-level politicians and public officials of the United States to condemn “racist hate speech and crimes in Charlottesville and through the country”.

Anastasia Crickley, Chairperson of UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) said:

    We are alarmed by the racist demonstrations, with overtly racist slogans, chants and salutes by white nationalists, neo-Nazis, and the Ku Klux Klan, promoting white supremacy and inciting racial discrimination and hatred

As per UN News Centre:

    In a decision issued under its ‘early warning and urgent action’ procedure, the Committee, which monitors implementation of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, stated “there should be no place in the world for racist white supremacist ideas or any similar ideologies that reject the core human rights principles of human dignity and equality.”

Let’s take a moment to gain another perspective from Los Angeles Times writer Jesse Walker asks in an Op-Ed: Are we headed for a second civil war?

    Not inconceivable? That’s a low bar. It’s certainly possible to imagine America returning to the violence of the 1960s and ’70s, and beneath the overwrought language, that’s what some — though not all — of these civil war prophets seem to have in mind. But a near-future war with two clear sides and Gettysburg-sized casualty counts is about as likely as a war with the moon.

      These “new civil war” stories frequently take a bait-and-switch approach. They invoke the violence at demonstrations like the rally in Charlottesville, Va., last weekend, where a man reportedly sympathetic to Nazism drove his car into a crowd of counter-protesters, killing a woman. In the same breath, they discuss the broad divisions separating “red” America from “blue” America. If you flip quickly between small violent clashes and big political disagreements, those big disagreements will look bloodier.

Conclusion: It’s clear that the United States is being purposely divided. The United Nations is clearly playing into the hype of issuing an early warning that has only been issued for third world countries in the past 10-years. In our opinion, the continued division in America will only be achieved through more events such as Charlottesville that will polarize the sheep into the streets for slaughtering.

Azozeo News U.S. Regulators and Blockchain Advocates to Discuss ICO Implications
« Reply #64 on: September 25, 2017, 01:30:55 PM »
https://news.bitcoin.com/u-s-regulators-and-blockchain-advocates-to-discuss-ico-implications-on-october-12/


Bitcoin News

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) declared this summer that initial coin offering (ICO) tokens were subject to federal securities laws. Just recently, the regulatory agency announced that it would hold an investor advisory committee meeting on October 12 to discuss the implications of blockchain technology for securities markets.

The SEC’s Investor Advisory Committee Plans to Discuss the Implications of ICOs

U.S. Regulators and Blockchain Advocates Plan to Discuss ICO ImplicationsIn two weeks, the SEC intends to hold a committee meetingto discuss blockchains and initial coin offerings (ICOs). The meeting will be held at the SEC’s headquarters in Washington D.C. and will be open to the public. In addition to the discussion, the organization has added two new members to the investor advisory committee; Allison Bennington and Mina Nguyen. The committee was established through Section 911 of the Dodd-Frank Act and has nineteen members.

“Agenda: October 12, 2017, a meeting of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Investor Advisory Committee,” explains the SEC announcement. “Discussion regarding blockchain and other distributed ledger technology and implications for securities markets.”
SEC’s Prior Warnings

The meeting this October follows the regulator’s recent warnings about ICOs and startups selling ERC-20 tokens. This year, the ICO market has raised billions so far despite having any regulatory infrastructure. Three weeks ago, the SEC agency warned of ICO schemes again and forced four firms to shut down token sale operations. The regulator even called the crowd sales “‘pump-and-dump,’ and market manipulation schemes.” Additionally, the SEC chairman, Jay Clayton, explained during a panel discussion this month that ICO investors don’t truly understand the risks involved with token sales.


The Meeting’s Participants Will Include Blockchain Advocates

The meeting will include a few speakers from other regulatory departments and the blockchain industry. This includes the former financial tech advisor at the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), Jeff Bandman; the president of the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC), Michael Bodson; the co-founder of the blockchain company Chain, Adam Ludwin; and a representative from Nasdaq. Ludwin has presented blockchain topics to U.S. congressional leaders and members of the Federal Reserve in the past.

The SEC’s meeting in October should bring more light to how U.S. regulators perceive the nascent ICO industry and how they plan to protect investors and apply legislation to these popular token sales.

Azozeo's News-THE REAL SHIFT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH POLITICS

Waking Times

If you still believe a word the politicians say, it simply means you are living in a trance and subject to mind control. Those who have already awakened to the true matrix of political reality are laughing through their tears. They are laughing because they can see through the nicely packaged lies, fabricated for you by those you trust your life to. But they also cry, because they feel helpless to change anything.

This is the reality in which we all live today. Can we affect change in our diseased world run by the least among us?How did we come to a point when we the people have lost our voices, our confidence in ourselves and our minds along the way?

We were slowly cooked in the pot like a frog, which didn’t jump out because it didn’t feel the rising temperature of the water. Then when the water boiled, it was too late. The frog was cooked. The same is happening to us. Little by little our freedom and liberty are being stripped away.

Regardless of countless warnings from those who dedicated their lives to fighting for freedom, we remain asleep and entertained. But these warnings are not designed for entertainment. Their purpose to share and wake us up so we can do something about the growing trend towards tyranny, which eventually will swallow us like whales eats the fishes.

Unfortunately, a dystopian world is no longer a matter of science fiction but a reality waiting us around the corner. Living in the 21st century, it is hard to imagine that a world like that of Nazi Germany or the Communist Soviet Union can rise from the ashes like an evil Phoenix and enslave humanity once again, leading to an imprisoning and extermination of a large portion of the population. To us it seems rather unlikely. But is it? Do we not see it already happening? Some of us do.

The same authoritarian voices, whose echo reaches us from the archives of history, can be heard on TV every day. The preachers are different, but the message is all the same. The mainstream media, which has lost credibility during the last election in the United States, is continuing to spread propaganda regardless. The factory of lies is relentless and will keep going until the very last consumer keeps buying it. But propaganda has reached new heights. In recent days, it has employed some famous actors, who use their authoritative voice to spread the lie.

The latest video made by Morgan Freeman deserves contempt.

It was rather sad to see him do it. Up until now, he was among my favored actors. I liked his acting, look and voice. In his video he makes a statement that we are at war with Russia, which is reckless and dangerous. Let’s analyze it for a moment. Morgan Freeman is known for playing authority figures in numerous movies, a sensible voice, which many of us love and respect. But now, after playing God in the movie Bruce Almighty and Evan Almighty, Professor Samuel Norman in Lucy, Malcolm Beech, the leader of the human resistance in the movie Oblivion and many other roles in which he assumes authority, is now preaching insanity and lies.

No war has been declared with Russia, no shot or missile was fired. Not even a word of hostility has been said by president Putin toward the U.S. So how we are at war? Just because a famous actor says so?

Then he continues by saying that Putin himself, while being angry at the collapse of his country, gets revenge on America by helping Trump win. But according to what president Trump is supposedly trying to do, this makes no sense whatsoever. The attempt by the president to protect the sovereignty of the U.S.A by securing American borders, enhancing the economy by creating jobs, cutting taxes and restoring the Constitution, which is the only protection from tyranny, increasing the birth rate, trying to give Americans a better healthcare deal and building an even stronger military, thus making America great again, points clearly toward a constructive approach, beneficial to the American people. Consequently, if Putin helped Trump to become president, then logically speaking, Putin would be the best friend of American people, not an enemy as Morgan Freeman is trying to portray him. Thus, the actor’s statement is simply illogical.

Interestingly enough, another great actor, Leonardo DiCaprio, has recently given a speech at the U.N. about global warming. Regardless of the validity of the notion, the use of actors for political gain is obvious. Who will be next to come from one stage to another to play their worse role? The powers that be are rather desperate if they resort to use of famous actors to push their propaganda forward.

In fact, the message of this video is openly hostile towards Russia and can cause an escalation of tension between the two superpowers, which in fact has more in common than not.

Essentially, and perhaps without realizing it, Morgan Freeman promotes a nuclear armageddon, which could result from the continuous effort of teasing the nuclear bear.

All this, of course, does not have to happen. The future is not written in stone. We can change its course by changing the present state of our minds, choosing peace over war, sanity over madness, friendship over hostility, cooperation over competition, constructive dialogue over destructive threats and so on. Our choices are much greater than choosing an aisle or window, paper or plastic, Coke or Pepsi, as the great Gorge Carlin has pointed out.

Freedom is like a muscle, which needs to be constantly exercised. Otherwise, it gets atrophied. The same goes for our thinking. If we don’t do it for ourselves, there will be others who will do it for us and generally speaking, this kind of social affair does not result in a healthy lifestyle.

Meanwhile, as all of this is happening, people seem to be distracted by things that simply don’t matter. Obsession with lifeless objects, shallow ideas, wasteful researches, celebrity life, etc. It is shocking to observe preoccupation with meaningless stuff in our society, when the very foundation of it is at risk.

It is puzzling to see a great deal of money being spent on a search for microbial life on other planets, which are light years away, when evolved, intelligent life on our own planet is ignored, devalued, misunderstood and destroyed. What is the point? Would it not be wiser to use this money on cancer research and save human lives instead? Just an idea. I’m sure there are more.

No wonder Elon Musk is working hard to colonize Mars. I have no doubts that he understands the threats we are facing as humanity, but is escaping our only option? We have the money, technology and the mind to affect change in this world. All we need is to come together as a human species and decide our future for good. This is within our reach. What are we waiting for? Neither the Messiah, nor aliens will arrive to help us out. Our tendency to externalize responsibility is destructive and must be re-adjusted towards ourselves. And that is the real SHIFT, which must be made, not waited for.

You Are a Sovereign Being – Start Acting Like One!

November 9th, 2017

By Jeff Street

Guest writer for Wake Up World

There is a growing awareness and indignation about the injustice and inequality running rampant in our world, and growing interest in creating the better world that we all know can exist. One of the key changes that needs to happen to enable the transformation of our humanity is to reclaim our personal power to think for ourselves, to discern truth from disinformation, and to stand firm for what we know is right.

The Source that created us endowed us with free-will and the power to create with our own thoughts, words, and deeds. Yet many of us are squandering these endowments, squandering them so badly that the probable future of humanity is not looking very bright. Humanity is at a critical junction in its history — one road leads to a very bleak future, and the other has the potential to be a new golden age. The outcome depends on us, each one of us, starting right now and it starts by freeing your mind!  The key to reclaiming our freedom and creating a better world is for each of us to reclaim our sovereignty.
What is Sovereignty?

The word “Sovereign” refers to the power or right that a nation/state or individual has to determine its own destiny — to not be controlled by others.  The ability to determine one’s own destiny has been termed SELF-DETERMINATION and it is one aspect of the timeless ideal called FREEDOM.  Self-determination and freedom are said to be intrinsic rights bestowed on us by Source/God.  The American founding fathers firmly thought so and called these “inalienable” rights.  Personal sovereignty refers to the intrinsic right of an INDIVIDUAL to self-determination.

But having the right of sovereignty is not the same as BEING sovereign.  One must assert a right through one’s thoughts and actions, or the right is essentially lost.  Ultimately your sovereignty has to be demonstrated.  The classic saying “Freedom is not free” echoes this idea — rights must be claimed by the constant application of attention, thought, and engagement.

An important part of being truly free is the responsibility to be highly discerning about the ideas, beliefs, and attitudes that we choose to accept from our society.  In fact, we must be independent minded and confident enough to form our own ideas, beliefs, and attitudes — despite the pressure that society puts on us to conform.  We must not just blindly accept everything our government, religions, teachers, and so called “experts” want us to believe. Doing so gives away our power and allows the “powers that be” to create a world that serves their agenda — a world that might not be in our best interest.

    “Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken by man. Do not believe in anything simply because  it is written in books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because the have been handed down for many generations. Only after careful contemplation, if you find that it rings true with your heart and is conducive to the good of all, then embrace it.”

Why Personal Sovereignty is Important

If we don’t start forming our own beliefs, trusting our inner knowledge, and standing for what we know in our hearts is right, the future of our world will be defined and created by a very few with a very self-serving agenda.  In this world that worships the almighty dollar commercial interests are steering the ship.  We have allowed them to hijack our government, our religions, our media, and our beliefs and attitudes — materialism, consumerism, separatism, and fear serve their interests.
Giving Away Our Power

But the “powers that be” only steer the ship because we’ve bought into all the beliefs and attitudes and have let ourselves become apathetic and disengaged.  So let’s not point fingers and blame those that we perceive are manipulating us.  Realize the we are ALLOWING ourselves to be manipulated, allowing ourselves to be taken to a future not of our design.  We are fully responsible for everything about our lives including what we let happen to us, and we are letting a lot happen to us.  Don’t fall into the “victim mentality” trap and get caught up in the blame and complain game — that only gives away your power.

    “As long as the general public is passive, apathetic, and distracted by consumerism or hatred, then the powerful can do as they please, and those who survive will be left to contemplate the outcome.” ~ Noam Chomsky

Far too many of us are just are letting our beliefs and values be determined by others.  Far too many of us are just going along with what we are told, following what our government, church, teachers, or idols have told us to believe, or do, or be, explicitly or implicitly.

Far too many of us are deferring to the opinions and ideas of the “AUTHORITIES“.  This gives away our power and allows others to control us.  And often times the “authorities”, or those that control/influence them, have hidden agendas that are not in our best interest.

    “Mass beliefs in the power of outside authorities are firmly entrenched in your psyche …  raising many questions about the truth of who you are and why you place your trust outside yourself.” ~ Barbara Marciniak, Path of Empowerment

To reclaim our power we need to start forming OUR OWN beliefs, trust our inner truth, and do what WE KNOW is right, not what others tell us, or society expects.  We need to engage our hearts and minds and stand firm in what we know is true and right.  If we don’t do this soon, we might find ourselves living in a dystopian future like the ones explored in numerous fiction novels.
The Erosion of Freedom in The Age of Distraction, Obsession, and Fear

In this era dominated by consumerism, materialism, and the pursuit of the almighty dollar many of us are so busy and distracted by chasing the money, and the possessions, and the thrills that we are failing to see that we are gradually giving away more and more of our power and freedom.  This slow erosion is going on all around us, subtly and not so subtly, on many levels.

Our obsession with the accumulation of possessions — materialism and consumerism — keeps us distracted from what really matters.  Our fixation on all the dangerous, bad, fearful things happening in the world keeps us distracted from what’s important.  All the wars including the “war on terrorism” and the “war on drugs” keep us mesmerized in fear.

    “Your power ends where your fear begins.” ~ Barbara Marciniak, Path of Empowerment

And who does this all serve?  It serves shadowy commercial and political interests and the military-industrial complex and keeps them in the power and in the money.  For them it’s all about the money, nothing else seems to matter, no higher purpose than to serve themselves.  And they are masters of manipulation and are capitalizing on our weaknesses and our fears.  Isn’t it obvious?  Haven’t we had enough of this?
Reclaiming Our Power

It’s our divine right and responsibility to own our beliefs, ideas, principles, and values.  It’s time we reclaim our confidence in our inner knowledge and have the courage to stand for truth and justice despite what our institutions, the media, and others may be telling us.  We need to stop blaming the system and wake-up from our laziness, distractions, and dependencies to reclaim our power so we can create a better world!

It’s time to remember who you really are, not who others or society says you are or can be.  It is time to stand in your own personal truths, not what others have told you is true.  It is time to form your own beliefs, rather than just adopt what others believe.  It is time to stand for what you know in your heart is right, rather than what society tells you is right, even if it means standing alone.

You are a slice of the powerful infinite being that we call the Universe, the source of “All That Is”.  Stand in that power confidently!  BE TRUE TO YOURSELF and STOP being a FOLLOWER!

You don’t need teachers, experts, professors, gurus, priests, pastors, church leaders, or heroes/idols to tell you what to believe, or what the truth is, or to show you how to connect with God.  You don’t need THEIR beliefs, ideologies, or specific practices that they swear are the one and only way to reach the truth.

    “We don’t need no education, we don’t need no thought control…” ~ Pink Floyd, Another Brick In The Wall

It is all within you, all the knowledge of the universe is deep within you. You are connected to all of it, to Source or God or whatever you choose to call it, just go within and become quiet and trust what you find, what you feel, what you know.

Awaken to the divine intelligence within.

A bright future for humanity is still very much possible, but we’re going to have wake up out of our haze of consumption, distraction, laziness, apathy, and fear and start paying attention and getting engaged.  Even though all our experiences expand Source’s understanding of itself and the nature of its existence and, therefore, are all valuable, surely we’ve had enough of the many less-than-desirable themes repeating in our experiences.  Surely we’ve had enough of wage and debt slavery, of going to a job every day that we hate or bores us to tears, of all the competition and conflict, of all the pain and suffering — have we not? I think it is safe to say that our Source would encourage us choose a higher and grander vision of what we could be.  I think it’s safe to say that our Source would prefer the experience of joy, abundance, and freedom — for all.

Let’s make it happen!
I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why you’re here. You’re here because you know something. What you know you can’t explain, but you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world.
You don’t know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind

Energy Balancing And Attraction Relative To Electromagnetic Frequencies
« Reply #69 on: February 27, 2019, 10:27:24 AM »




As a now-retired former healthcare professional, but continuing-to-write researcher and journalist, I candidly have to admit I have seen an unbelievable, but verifiable, decline in public health and an acceleration in morbidity statistics, especially within the last three younger generations—infants and children—and official statistics[1] prove that.

Adults, too, are affected; many experiencing health anomalies their allopathic healthcare providers seemingly can’t confirm, but still patients complain about while finding no relief.

And then there’s a troubling ‘phantom’ health anomaly, which can exacerbate any existent health condition, which has been accelerating exponentially since the rollout of high technology ‘smart’ appliances and devices.

That totally exasperating condition is identified as Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS) or Idiopathic Environmental Intolerance (IEI) per the World Health Organization (WHO). It is brought on by over-exposure to radiofrequencies produced by technologies using microwaves within a broad spectrum of wavelengths, e.g., cell phones and cell towers; utility companies AMI Smart Meters; all smart home appliances, i.e., dish-and-clothes-washers, dryers, refrigerators, TVs, computers, etc.; plus the very networks from which those smart gadgets get their power to function, spy, report back and even addict users to their constant usage.

This is going to need real, verifiable and replicable research, but it really bears watching. It's a question that communications giants actively don't want to investigate for fear of the answer.

It all starts at the quantum level. If your energy is screwed up, it will manifest in the physical realm.

Thanks for looking....

Is Your Life Crisis Really a Spiritual Calling in Disguise?

February 28th, 2019

By Mateo Sol

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

    So many are alive who don’t seem to care. Casual, easy, they move in the world as though untouched. But you take pleasure in the faces of those who know they thirst. You cherish those who grip you for survival. You are not dead yet, it’s not too late to open your depths by plunging into them and drink in the life that reveals itself quietly there. ~ Rainer Maria Rilke (Rilke’s Book of Hours)

In our journey towards “civilization” we’ve found more and more ways to numb and disconnect ourselves from Spirit. We live and work in gated communities, shopping centers, and office buildings, with air conditioned houses and cars, fences, landscapers, animal controllers, and we spend our leisure time immersed in complex and absorbing technological worlds.

In order to deal with our soul starvation, we drown ourselves in prescription medications, alcohol, recreational drugs, consumerism and other soul-numbing forms of escapism. We even suffocate ourselves in rigid belief systems that moralize and judge others, promising to alleviate our sense of alienation from life and existential turmoil.

But our souls are wiser than all of this. There comes a moment in our lives where we grow out of the collective values and ways of living common to our societies. At a certain point in our lives, we realize that the values, attitudes, relationships and beliefs we’ve held no longer contribute to the development of who we truly are: our authentic selves.

This life crisis, although painful, provides a vital opportunity for us to begin our spiritual journeys towards wholeness.

The Power of Words and Why Words Can Manifest Life
« Reply #73 on: March 02, 2019, 12:54:20 PM »

To innerstand how powerful words are, we need to know what the term word means on an esoteric and spiritual level. Before we explore its esoteric and spiritual meaning, it is important that we study its common definitions and investigate other words related to it.

The term word is defined by TheFreeDictionary.com as, “A sound or a combination of sounds, or its representation in writing or printing, that symbolizes and communicates a meaning and may consist of a single morpheme or of a combination of morphemes.”

According to OxfordDictionaries.com, the term word means, “A single distinct meaningful element of speech or writing, used with others (or sometimes alone) to form a sentence and typically shown with a space on either side when written or printed.”

When you think about it, words are symbols that transmit information.
