14 US Governors Prepare State Militia Defenses, To Be Ready Against Obama’s Rogue Federal Forces!

 

From Before It’s News

By John Rolls (Reporter) – October 15, 2012

The Blade Report

Obama fearing a revolution against him by the states, has moved swiftly by nationalizing nearly all National Guard Forces in multiple states; Georgia, Alabama, Kansas, Minnesota, Tennessee, Virginia, Louisiana, South Carolina – to name a few.

The Governors of the Great States of Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia still have under their Command-and-Control the State Defense Forces to go against U.S. Federal forces should the need arise.

Also important to note: There are NO U.S. laws prohibiting National Guard troops from also joining their State’s Defense Forces.

This dilemma occurred during the Civil War with many “citizen soldiers” choosing to serve their states instead of the Federal Government.

Obama is angered by the several State Governors who have re-established “State Defense Forces.”

These forces are described as: “State Defense Forces (also known as State Guards, State Military Reserves, State Militias) in the United States are military units that operate under the sole authority of a state government;

they are not regulated by the National Guard Bureau nor are they part of the Army National Guard of the United States.

State Defense Forces are authorized by state and federal law and are under the command of the governor of each state.

State Defense Forces are distinct from their state’s National Guard in that they cannot become federal entities.”

Mr. Obama is fearful of these State Defense Forces, in that he does not have control of said forces, and with the U.S. Military stretched to near breaking from multiple deployments and theatre actions in Iraq and Afghanistan,

these State military forces would be under the direct command and authority of the Governors in which states have said forces.

(Xaniel’s Note : And that was how it was originally designed by our forefathers in which to deal with an out of control Government, much like what we are seeing today ! )~~~Xaniel777

In essence, the Governors would have “de facto control” of the United States.

( Xaniel’s Note : AND AGAIN, this is the way it was designed by our forefathers to be ! Despite what the Federal Government thinks, it, (the Federal Government), works for the States which in turn, work for ‘ WE THE PEOPLE ‘.)~~~Xaniel777

The two Governors leading this move are: Tim Pawlenty, Governor of Minnesota; and Rick Perry, Governor of Texas.

Both of these State Governors stated they have: “…deep fear the President is destroying their Nation.”

 Governor Pawlenty’s fear of Obama is that since Obama took office he has appeased America’s enemies and has shunned some of America’s strongest allies, especially Israel.

(Xaniel’s Note : Israel IS NOT our friend or ally, but a virus and drain on our Country and the World !! WAKE-UP PEOPLE)~~Xaniel777

Governor Perry has declared that Obama is punishing his State of Texas by dumping tens-of-thousands of illegal Mexican immigrants into the cities and small towns of Texas.

Governor Perry further recently stated: “If Barack Obamas Washington doesn’t stop being so oppressive, Texans might feel compelled to renounce their American citizenry and secede from the union.”

Don’t Vote For Evil

A Case for Abstention in the US Presidential Election

 

 

Dont Vote For Evil

From SABBAH Report

by  – October 16, 2012

Back during the George W. Bush neocon regime, President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela in his UN speech summed up George W. Bush for the world.

I am quoting Chavez from memory, not verbatim. “Yesterday standing at this same podium was Satan himself, speaking as if he owned the world. You can still smell the sulfur.”

Chavez is one of the American right-wing’s favorite bogeyman  because Chavez helps the people instead of bleeding them for the rich, which is Washington’s way.

While Washington has driven all but the one percent into the ground, Chavez cut poverty in half, doubled university enrollment, and provided health care and old age pensions to millions of Venezuelans for the first time.

Little wonder he was elected to a fourth term as president despite the many millions of dollars Washington poured into the election campaign of Chavez’s opponent.

While Washington and the EU preach neoliberalism – the supremacy of capital over labor – South American politicians who reject Washington’s way are being elected and reelected in Venezuela, Ecuador, Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, and Bolivia.

It was the Ecuadoran government, not Washington, that had the moral integrity to grant political asylum to WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange. The only time Washington grants asylum is when it can be used to embarrass an opponent.

In contrast to the leadership that is emerging in South America as more governments there reject the traditional hegemony of Washington, the US political elite, whether Republican or Democrat, are aligned with the rich against the American people.

The Republican candidate, Mitt Romney, has promised to cut taxes on the rich, taxes which are already rock bottom, to block any regulation of the gangsters in the financial arena, and to privatize Social Security and Medicare.

Privatizing Social Security and Medicare means to divert the people’s tax dollars to the profits of private corporations.

In Republican hands, privatization means only one thing: to cut the people’s benefits and to use the people’s tax dollars to increase the profits in the private sector.

Romney’s policy is just another policy that sacrifices the people to the one percent.

Unfortunately, the Democrats, if a lessor evil, are still an evil.

There is no reason to vote for the reelection of a president who codified into law the Bush regime’s destruction of the US Constitution,

who went one step further and asserted the power to murder US citizens without due process of law, and who has done nothing to stop the exploitation of the American people by the one percent.

As Gerald Celente says in the Autumn Issue of the Trends Journal, when confronted with the choice between two evils, you don’t vote for the lessor evil.

You boycott the election and do not vote. “Lessor or greater, evil is evil.”

If Americans had any sense, no one would vote in the November election.

Whoever wins the November election, it will be a defeat for the American people.

An  or Romney win stands in stark contrast with Chavez’s win.

Here is how Lula da Silva, the popular former president of Brazil summed it up: “Chavez’s victory is a victory for all the peoples of Latin America. It is another blow against imperialism.”

Washington, making full use of the almighty dollar, was unable to buy the Venezuelan election.

How will a Romney or Obama win be summed up?

The answer will be in terms of which candidate is best for Israel’s interest; which is best for Wall Street’s interest, which is best for agribusiness; which is most likely to attack Iran; which is most likely to subject economic and war protesters to indefinite detention as domestic extremists.

The only people who will benefit from the election of either Romney or Obama are those associated with the private oligarchies that rule America.

Thoughts at Perhaps the Most Perilous Time in World History

 

 

From The Intel Hub

By Stephen LendmanContributor

October 16, 2012

Daily events should scare everyone. Consider the times.

Wars rage without end. More threaten. One conflict follows others. So-called democracies wage them.

Popular needs go begging. Conquest, occupation, colonization, and exploitation are prioritized.

Ordinary people are on their own sink or swim.

Rich societies plead poverty. Nothing’s available for social needs, they claim.

War making priorities matter most. So do policies favoring bankers, other corporate favorites, and super-rich elites.

Today’s upside down reality endangers everyone. Protracted global Depression deepens.

Policies adopted make things worse, not better.

Criminality is rewarded, not punished. What better explains than Friday’s headline announcement.

Imagine Nobel Committee members granting NATO their most coveted award.

Warmakers won their Peace Prize. Perhaps they’ll be encouraged to keep ravaging countries globally.

Why not when war is considered peace.

Leaders who wage them reap huge rewards. Peacemakers are vilified. So are social democrats. Hugo Chavez stands out.

Most Venezuelans love him for good reason.

He cares and shows it. He keeps promises he makes. He shares Venezuela’s oil wealth with everyone.

Voters rewarded him with six more years. He thanked them responsibly.

He’ll deepen Bolivarian principles. He called 21st century socialism a work in progress.

He wants it advanced and improved, saying:

“We are obliged as a government and as the state to speed up the administration of efficient responses and solutions to the thousands and thousands of problems that the Venezuelan people still suffer from.

We are obliged to be more efficient, precisely so we can continue every day with greater force.”

He’ll launch “Mission Mercosur.”

It’s the Common Market of the South.

He wants it used to advance Venezuelan development.

He has railways, deep-water ports, and other projects in mind.

He wants more jobs created and exports increased.

It’s “extremely important….to convert La Ceiba, Trujillo state and the Lake of Maracaibo into international ports. Further, we should start at once to begin the construction of the railway line between the Orinoco and the Caribbean,” he said.

He also wants social programs expanded. He’ll implement what he calls “micro missions.” 

He wants local communities given more control. Let them prioritize needs.

“We are drafting up ideas, revising notes and the specific and fundamental objectives of the micro-missions, as there will be many. They will be applied in towns, regions, factories, schools and the different places where they are needed.”

“We must keep giving power to the people, that is the solution, it’s not the power of the bureaucracy and elites that is going to solve the problems of the people.”

He also announced a new social missions ministry.

It’ll work cooperatively with local communities.

At issue is helping all Venezuelans.

Under Chavez, those most in need come first.

In America, other Western societies and Israel, austerity is policy.

So is war making. People needs be damned.

They never mattered much.

Now they’re entirely off the table.

It’s been that way for decades. Today it’s worse than ever.

Imagine denying them during hard times when help is urgently needed.

It’s not forthcoming.

US policymakers promise deep social cuts ahead. They made plenty so far.

Republicans and Democrats are in lockstep.

Rhetoric alone differs.

Conquest, corporate favoritism, and benefitting super-rich elites matter.

Ordinary people are left high and dry.

Resources go increasingly for war and other ways to reward America’s privileged.

Warmakers may go global.

Perhaps they plan destroying all societies to save them.

Body counts don’t matter and never did. Only wealth, power, and privilege count.

That’s what makes their world go round.

Wage enough wars and they won’t have one.

Today’s isn’t safe to live in.

At age 93, Doug Dowd’s commitment for equity, justice, and peace remains strong.

His academic career spanned six decades.

He’s still writing cutting-edge books and articles.

He’s a radical economist in the best sense. He wants upside down societies right-sided.

By email, he sent this writer and others his latest thoughts. He covered much ground.

He headlined “We Must Stop Today’s Lurch Toward Disaster and Clear the Path Toward a Decent Society.”

Who can disagree! With America’s elections three weeks away, he’s justifiably concerned.

However it turns out, ordinary people lose.

At the same time, Republicans scare him most.

Democrats also are up to no good.

He urges third party activism.

Another way entirely is essential.

In 2008, Dowd hoped Obama might change things if only modestly.

Now he’s one of his sharpest critics.

At the same time, Romney is menacing.

He and like minded uber-hawks may “take us toward self-destruction.”

It’s time “We the People” used “our brains, energies, and values” responsibly.

Given the alternatives, Obama’s the best of two bad choices.

He’s woefully short of good enough. Once past November 6, working for “a strong, truly democratic” society is vital.

It won’t happen by accident. Wishing won’t make it so.

Nor will voting Republican or Democrat.

Something entirely different is needed.

What passes for normal in America includes wars without end, eroding social services en route to eliminating them, and police state harshness for non-believers.

Wars threaten to go global. Dowd is justifiably scared.

“Today’s weaponry is insanely more destructive both quantitatively and qualitatively than” decades earlier.

“Future wars are almost certain to bring life on the earth to an end.”

At the same time, it’s “unlikely that anyone will do what is necessary to bring government to sanity and decency regarding war.”

Bipartisan “enthusiasm” urges more. Syria and Iran are prioritized.

Romney seems especially eager.

What kind of leaders think blowing up countries makes sense.

What kind of people support them.

Real change is urgent, and not just on foreign policy.

Dowd discussed domestic needs. “Militarism is bad enough,” he said.

What about making matters worse by homeland social deprivation.

 Vital services are being destroyed in plain sight, in real time.

They include healthcare, education, housing, and much more.

Devastating consequences are certain unless stopped and reversed.

Ordinary people must act on their own behalf.

No other way works.

Witnessing what’s ongoing “makes for screams,” said Dowd.

Elites benefit while millions most in need go begging.

Politicians are in bed with corporate crooks.

They don’t give a damn about life, liberty, equity, justice, and human need.

Policies they support show it.

Growing inequality is institutionalized. America’s heading for oblivion.

People needs are ignored.

Depression conditions threaten to become catastrophic.

Policymakers able to act don’t notice or care. Self-interest defines them.

They infest Washington like a metastasizing cancer.

The longer injustices persist, the worse they get. A race to the bottom assures disaster.

It’s happening in America, across Europe, and in Israel. Who wants to live this way?

Millions are unemployed. Poverty’s expanding exponentially.

So are homelessness, hunger, and overall deprivation. 

Environment dangers are ignored.

Dowd quoted a frightening analysis, saying:

“It is clear that unless we make substantial changes in how and what we produce and consume the world will sink into irreversible and increasing dangers to air and water and much else upon which our very existence relies.”

“There has always been destruction and waste, of course, but in the past century their qualitative and quantitative explosion are on or over the edge of becoming lethal.”

“Modern ways of what, how, and the ways in which we produce and consume have increasingly poisoned what we depend upon for life.”

“The products we consumers depend upon for life, industry and agriculture depend upon for their profits. Pushed by their needs and desires, all too many producers – most, immorally, and successfully the giants among them – have through endless product changes and advertising brought out the foolish in consumers, and dangerous levels of waste of our natural resources.”

“We must awaken ourselves from such enhancement, now, for time is running out in our resources. Life was difficult for most before the age of consumerism. Because of our increasingly frail environment we have made it dangerously so.”

“It is no secret that today we are facing a planetary environmental emergency, endangering most species of the planet including our own, and that this impending catastrophe has its roots in the capitalist economic system.”

Try finding media scoundrels explaining what everyone needs to know. Western ones turn a blind eye.

Most people have no idea what’s going on or how it harms them.

Bread and circuses matter more than their own welfare.

Worsening crisis conditions are not understood. Nor is knowing the urgency to act.

Change depends on grassroots activism.

Nothing else works and never did.

It’s not a left, right, or centrist issue. Survival’s at stake.

Everyone who cares must cooperate together or suffer.

Independent activism is key.

America’s two-party duopoly is too corrupt and dysfunctional to fix.

Another way is essential.

In the 1960s, Dowd was one of 18 anti-war activists.

Together they created “The Mobe: Mobilization to End the War in Vietnam.”

Diverse interests were represented.

Included were “socialists, communists, women, unionists, priests, Blacks, academics,” and other ordinary people who cared.

He and two others were invited to North Vietnam to observe things firsthand.

They met Pham Van Dong. He was prime minister from 1955 – 1976.

He served unified Vietnam in the same capacity until 1987.

“He told us that as long as our movement kept up its demonstrations, the US. would have to hold back from using its atomic bombs, and could not win the war without them.”

Anti-war efforts are always needed.

It’s important they become part of “wider political activism.”

Today it’s essential. “Mobe” and similar efforts helped end the Vietnam War.

Something similar today can work again.

It’s never easy, quick, or without dangers. Unless people try, conditions are sure worsen.

Inaction guarantees “more misery” for most people. It also assures eventual “war (to) end all.”

If that’s not motivation enough to act, what is?

Best SHTF Shotgun?

 

 

From the Trenches World Report

Posted on October 16, 2012 by # 1 NWO Hatr

Reality Survival 

 What type of emergency are you preparing for (economic collapse, terrorist attack, Electro-Magnetic Pulse, natural disaster, hyper-inflation, etc)

Nobody knows what exactly the future holds; therefore nobody knows specifically how to prepare. 

When selecting a weapon, the shotgun seems to prove more versatile than most of the others. 

This jack of all trades weapon can do all things from put food on the table (bird shot) to defend against hostiles (buck shot) and put down wild predators (slugs).

I won’t attempt to argue that there are better weapons for some specific applications.  

Many law enforcement agencies across the US have moved away from the shotgun toward AR platforms due to increased accuracy, effective range, greater ammo capacity, lighter weight and reduced recoil. 

That said the specific mission of a law enforcement carbine is limited to tactical applications (not so great at shooting birds)

The shotgun is sufficient for combat engagements greater than 100 yards with slugs and is superior at ranges under 35 yards with Buck shot.

The vast majority of tactical engagements one would expect to encounter in an emergency SHTF situation would be within those ranges (beyond that a tactical retreat should be considered if practical).

A Shotgun Offers Variety!

The variety of ammunition is what makes the shotgun so versatile.

The ability to switch types of ammo depending on the application is equivalent to having several different weapons.

Loading a slug is ideal for hunting big game, engaging hostile threats at distances (or through barriers), and protection from wild animals (bear).

Loading a round of 00 Buck is equivalent to approximately 8 or 9 rounds of 9mm.  

A round of birdshot is great for hunting small game (bird, snake, and squirrel) and also pretty good for breaching door locks at contact distance.  

A 12 gauge flare round is a great way to signal people well over a mile away.  

Additionally there are several variations of “less than lethal” 12 gauge shotgun rounds that offer you an opportunity to incapacitate an individual (rather than kill them) if the situation presents itself.

These rounds include bean bag rounds, rubber slugs, pepper rounds, etc.

 The latter option (less lethal) may prove practical for many potential scenarios when you actually think about it (only having a “deadly force” option can really limit you both tactically and strategically).

Of all the types of shotguns available I prefer a good pump shotgun for a survival platform.

I feel a pump offers the best compromise of capacity, simplicity and durability.

Obviously a double or single barrel shotgun is simpler to operate and has less to malfunction; however, it is less ideal as a defensive arm due to limited capacity and slow reloads.

A semi auto would be faster to operate as a defensive weapon, however, they have many more parts to break, more prone to malfunction, and many do not reliably cycle low powered ammo (like less lethal rounds).

I think the Remington 870 is probably the best choice for a SHTF shotgun

Of the pump shotguns available, my personal preference is the Remington 870 with the Mossberg 590 (and 500) being a close second. Take a look here to see the specification of the Remington 870.  

Both of these shotguns have seen military and law enforcement duty.  Also there is a huge aftermarket for accessories for them. 

Common aftermarket accessories include side saddle shell holders (carry extra rounds), tactical lights (identify a threat in the dark), ghost ring sights, folding and recoil reducing stocks, rifled barrels, tube extensions and much more. 

If at all possible I would stick to the 12 gauge platform for the survival shotgun with the 20 gauge being a suitable substitute for recoil sensitive individuals.

As I said, the shotgun may not be the “best” weapon for every situation, but for the “Jack of All Trades” weapon that will do most jobs reasonably well (and some of them best of all), the shotgun is hard to beat.

How Facebook Is Trying to Kill Independent Media

 

 

From OFF GRID SURVIVAL

October 16, 2012

Is the Internet Really Free?

Facebok Zombies

For years we’ve been sold the lie that the internet was the last great refuge for the freedom of speech.

People talk about how the internet has helped small business and independent media sites compete with the large corporations of the world.

But is that really true anymore? Was it ever true?

What most people fail to realize, is these corporate powers have rigged the system.

The whole thing is complete bullshit!  99.9% of people who use the internet use one of three search engines to find their information.

They primarily use one social network to communicate with their friends and family, and most of the video and news consumed online is done so through YouTube.

What’s the problem?

That’s a lot of power in the hands of a couple large internet corporations.

Now I know the powers that be would like you to believe that these corporations can do no wrong, but a growing number of people are starting to wake up to the fact that these large internet corporations are manipulating what you see, choosing when you see it and determining  how you share it with your friends and family.

“What that can’t be” you say.

Well then let me share with you a small example of how the system is becoming increasingly rigged against small independent news websites. In fact, I’ll share with you an example from our own site.

Facebook Sponsored Posts

The picture above is what I have to spend in order to have my posts shared with my friends and followers on Facebook.

You see, Facebook has a new policy that completely screws independent news companies and small business owners.

Even though over 15,000 people have subscribed to receive our updates, via our facebook page, the corporate bigwigs over at Facebook have decided that you no longer get to choose which type of media you actually see.

If I want my posts shared with the 15,000 people who specifically asked to receive them through facebook, I will now have to pay over $75 per article.

If more people subscribe, that price can get even higher.

Well, I can’t do that. I’m not selling products, I’m reporting on the news and helping people become better prepared.

So Facebook has effectively censored my posts, along with hundreds of thousands of other small business people and independent media companies, in favor of promoting posts that can now only be purchased by major media companies and large corporations.

Yes, we still have our loyal readers who come directly to the site, but how long will that last?

With a growing number of companies following the Facebook model of Censorship, the internet will soon resemble the crap we see on T.V.  –

A couple of large corporations deciding what we can and can’t see, what news we can and can’t hear about and what product and services the drones should buy.

WHAT CAN WE DO?

Fight back using their own technology against them. 

At first I thought about leaving Facebook altogether, but then I realized I would be helping to perpetuate the problem.

Sometimes the best way to fight the war is from within the enemy’s camp.

While I refuse to share anything created by the corporate media; I will continue to share my posts  (even if only a fraction of the people actually see them) I hope you’ll do the same.

While I am in no way against people making money, I would rather see small business owners  have the opportunity to compete.

What’s most ironic about that statement is the fact that companies like Facebook are the ones out there talking about “greedy business owners” and supporting candidates who talk about the “evils of capitalism”, all the while screwing the small guy every chance they get.

Share and Promote independent media. 

The Corporate bigwigs have all the money in the world to promote their propaganda.

The only way we can fight back is to start setting up our own networks and promoting each other.

As part of this effort we list a number of survival websites and then promote it on ever page on this site.

We will soon be setting up a section for independent news media.

While technically some of these people may be our competitors; if we don’t stand together, pretty soon none of us will have a voice.

While I may not agree with everything that’s said on some of these sites, at least the opinions expressed are not scrubbed through mass media filters.

Break out of the Matrix. Although I still think we should use some of these systems to spread other independent viewpoints – especially to those who haven’t woken up – it’s time to start networking outside the system.

  • Visit other independent websites.

  • Join the discussion and talk to people who are commenting at the end of articles.

  • Instead of wasting your time commenting on Facebook, where they decide who sees the message, start engaging in conversations with people on this site and other sites like it.

In fact, if you have a unique point of view or think you can help people that visit this site, please join the conversation.

Ancient history…meets ‘now’

 

 

From Half Past Human.com

By Clif High – October 15, 2012

Starting our ‘way back machine’ in the year 2001, we meet an interesting character (see this video) by the name of Jay Weidner.

Now Jay got me in a whole lot of trouble with Cathy by stating that i had retired from Major Software company with millions of dollars.

Cathy, rightly, wanted to know where i had stashed these millions since we were obviously NOT living at that level.

Nope, sorry to say, no millions.

That part, Jay had wrong.

He doesn’t get much wrong, as history shows.

He was correct about the data reporting [food shortages] for the year 2012….from way back in 2000/2001.

What is important to take away from that brief clip is that, in 2001, the data was reporting the language that we are now seeing in the msm, or the ‘mainstream media’ (also known as ‘presstitutes’, and ‘whore press to the powers that be’, and ‘pimps for pedophiles’).

This language is all about up-coming, that is, predicted, food shortages, as we reported to our early readers in the years 2001/2002.

This meme was available to be seen then, as demonstrated by our reports of that time.

Now we are living it.

It has been no ‘accident’ of history that my radio interviews have frequently mentioned pies, and their production over these last 10 years.

It is also no accident that i frequently used the wording ‘calorie economy’.

This is a hint about the future.

Now that even the mainstreamwhorepress is reporting the exact language that we forecast way back in 2001, it may be appropriate to revisit your relationship with the food body of the planet.

In so doing, the idea of an expansion of the possible is encouraged by times such as these.

An example of the range of possibilities includes the idea of sun eaters.

Now please note that as a linguist, i am compelled to point out that the site at the link above uses language in a ‘loose’ manner.

As an instance, i am unaware of the ‘wide reporting’ of this phenomena as cited in their opening statements.

Their lack of precision of statements aside, the phenomena is real, and has been documented, as well as hoaxed, for centuries.

There is even a particular protocol, or regimen, that the 3rd century CE Taoists used to ‘access sun (as) food’.

It is known in yogic centric traditions going back as far as records of hatha yoga extend; even being cited as an offshoot, or side effects of some of the body siddhis (special powers gained through enlightenment practices).

And please note that the leaner the biologic machine, the more efficient its functioning.

Stating this as a duality, it takes less food to maintain a healthy, lean body, than a healthy, fat body, as the lean body is simply used to getting more movement with fewer calories, while the fat body has a ‘mind set’ toward keeping those fat cells plumped up.

So, as a general rule, and a general state of health being assumed, it is better to face hard times and restricted caloric intake with as efficient a biologic machine as possible.

Lest you, the reader (assuming terrestrial humans only, all readers of other species exempted from the following), think yourself not the inhabitant of a biologic machine, i would like to note that 99 per cent of the mass of your body is primarily composed of only 6/six elements, and that carbon (by mass) is the second most plentiful.

Outside of water, the most dominant, and dense ‘matter’ in your body is carbon. 

Further, and perhaps even more shocking, of all the (naturally occurring) elements in universe, carbon has the highest melting point!

Thus your biologic engine, the ‘body’ (word actually derives from old english bodig meaning ‘trunk, torso, or shell’ of an animal or plant), is in fact, composed of material that is tougher than uranium. At least as far as melting points go.

Such is our nature as humans that the siddhis are possible, and that possibility is clearly supported by the materials of which we are composed.

To those readers ‘fresh off the ignorance boat’, let me answer the question that will ultimately occur “how can such things as sun eating and yogic siddhis be real? I see my own flesh and it is incapable of living off light.”

It is your mind imposing limits to the body, not the reverse. It is the mind of the perceiver that must first be educated, and the body follows.

Further, since both mind and body are illusionary at so many levels, we need not take either as too much of an impediment to our range of possibilities.

At its core, much of real education involves the removal of the barriers placed in our minds by our schooling.

Hmmmm…by the way, guess who wants those barriers placed on your mind by their schooling?

The prepared (educated) mind will constantly examine its own thinking as an integral part of the process of decision making in an attempt to seek out, and eliminate barriers to effective ‘viewing’ of the context in which the decisions must be made.

By actively seeking to expand the scope of mental vision, the prepared mind makes itself available to the opportunities placed about by universe.

As chance/universe favors the prepared mind, it promotes this expansion of vision within the species.

Universe is engineering change in humanity through change in the context of life here on earth.

Change, and chance, do NOT favor rigidity of thought, which is why fascism and dictatorships always fade, their point of view limits their understanding of the changing nature of universal context, and thus denies to them, opportunities that are plainly visible to the less inhibited mind.

So as our friend Sam Clemens notes, ‘i refuse to allow my schooling to limit my education’.

Or more pertinent to the times…..a man (or woman) standing in a field of plenty, with a mind trapped in a context that only sees weeds, will starve.

What are you seeing these days?
