“Sometimes you gotta create what you want to be a part of.”
~ Geri Weitzman Two and a half years ago, Humanity Healing was started from a very simple concept: when we help others through Compassionate Action, we help our own healing and through us, Humanity as a whole. We “opened our doors” as a Yahoo Group with the intention of bringing together “wounded” Healers with those in need of healing. Little did we know how that one tiny pebble in the pond would ripple out. Our original Yahoo Group is still doing what it was created for; but today, Humanity Healing is a multifaceted, multidimensional organization. OM-Times Magazine is the newest addition to the Humanity Healing family. The intent of this magazine is not only to bring our readers new perspectives in healing and spirituality, but to open the debate to new voices. As a result, we will not only be featuring internationally-known experts, such as Dr. Judith Orloff in this issue, but opening the doors to new and talented authors from our extended networks. Humanity Healing is an extended family, and we are blessed that you are a part! Much Metta,

in the muck of negativity, you can’t lead a liberated, happy life. As a physician, I see that most people don’t have the everyday tools to transform frustration, depression, anxiety, worry, and fear into positive emotions. This book is a how-to guide that offers you these tools. I work in a mainstream medical system that doesn’t generally deal with emotions in an expanded way. As a UCLA psychiatric resident I learned to prescribe medications and use traditional psychotherapy. In this book, I also bring spirituality, subtle energy, and intuition into this equation and offer strategies that go beyond mainstream medicine. Another powerful reason I wrote this book is that I watched my mother, a physician, literally loose her life to stress and fear. I loved her more than anything, but I didn’t want to do the same thing to myself, as I have similar tendencies.

Emotional Freedom: Liberate Yourself from Negative Emotions and Transform Your Life
An Interview with Judith Orloff, MD on her new book, Emotional Freedom By Barbara Stahura

Barbara: What is emotional freedom, and why is it so important for individuals and our world today?

Barbara: Why did you write Emotional Freedom? Judith Orloff M.D. I’m passionate about teaching people to transform negative emotions into positive ones. If you get mired

Judith Orloff MD: Emotional freedom is your ability to love by cultivating positive emotions and being able to compassionately witness and transform negative ones, whether they’re yours or another’s. This skill liberates you from fear and lets you navigate adversity without attacking someone, losing your cool, or being derailed by negativity. With emotional freedom you can choose to react constructively rather than relinquishing command of the situation when your buttons get pushed (This book is

unrelated to the tapping technique of the same name). Barbara: What is the role of compassion in emotional freedom? Judith Orloff MD: Compassion is key because unless you have self-compassion, it’s hard to heal difficult emotional states. And also when a loved one is going through a trying time, being compassionate without judging them is essential. My spiritual teacher says we make progress on the spiritual path by beating ourselves up a little bit less each day. I believe that. It’s about baby steps. Traditional psychiatry often views them more as tormentors, something to get rid of. I believe that emotions come to us—even wrenching ones like depression—to spiritually awaken us. Each emotion is a prompt for us to get more in touch with our hearts and expand our light. This perspective really changes how you deal with all emotional challenges. Barbara: How can emotional freedom help us to not absorb negative emotions from others?

Barbara: You say that emotions have four crucial components. What are they and why is it vital to know about them?

Judith Orloff MD: To experience emotional freedom it’s necessary to understand these four basic components of emotion: their biology, spirituality, energy, and psychology. With fear, frustration, loneliness, worry, and more, the book teaches you to proactively shift your biochemistry as well as your energy, and to see the spiritual and psychological meaning of what you’re going through. This will give you all the tools you need to change. Barbara: You believe that emotions are a path to spiritual awakening. Please explain. Judith Orloff MD: I see difficult emotions as a laboratory for spiritual growth--whereas

Judith Orloff MD: Many sensitive people come to me, as patients and in workshops, who’ve been labeled “overly sensitive.” These people, including me, are what I call “emotional empaths.” Because we are so sensitive, we absorb the energy of others. We sense their fear, anxiety, and stress and take them into our bodies. Then we get exhausted or feel ill ourselves. As a child, I couldn’t go into shopping malls or crowded places because I’d walk in fine and then walk out exhausted or with some ache or pain I didn’t have before. I didn’t realize what was happening. I went to my mother, a

physician, who said, “Oh, no, dear, you just don’t have a thick enough skin.” Not a good thing to tell an intuitive child! But as I’ve matured intuitively and as a physician, I’ve realized that people on a spiritual path tend to gain more sensitivity as they develop. Thus, they need to learn how not to absorb outside energy so they can feel joyous and free. This book discusses how to be compassionate but stay centered without becoming a n emotional sponge.

Barbara: In the book, you also define four emotional types. What are they and what can they tell us about ourselves? Judith Orloff MD: They are “the intellectual,” “the empath,” “the gusher,” and “the rock.” These are the filters through which you see the world—the default setting of your personality to which you revert, especially under stress. Each type is determined by inborn temperament, upbringing, and perhaps karma. Since emotional freedom means being able to remain sensitive but centered in an overwhelming world, it’s essential to know your emotional type. Without this knowledge, many people dysfunctionally hunker down in their type for decades without examining which aspects do and don’t serve them.

Barbara: When dealing with difficult personalities, it’s easy to lose our cool or attack back. How can Emotional Freedom teach us to cope in a calmer manner?

Judith Orloff MD: There’s a chapter on emotional vampires, which is my term for many difficult people—for instance, a criticizer, a victim, a narcissist, or a controller. I say, let them be our teachers, rather than tormentors. We must ask ourselves: How do they teach us to communicate with more heart and better boundaries? How can we deal differently with feeling irritated, controlled, or insulted? The old way is to get nasty or withdraw. The new way is to not simply react when your buttons get pushed—a behavior that perpetuates war. Practice what I call “the namaste effect,” which is, ”I respect the spirit within you even if I don’t like what you’re doing.” Your victories over emotional vampires are not small—they’re huge. With every success, you are creating more hope for the world. From an intuitive standpoint, we are all interconnected: my emotional freedom affects your emotional freedom affects everyone in the world.

Barbara: Your section of the book about sleep and dreams is fascinating. What can they teach us about emotional freedom?

Judith Orloff MD: Sleep and dreams are a conduit for emotional freedom. Sleep is a great awakener because your linear mind quiets down, and you enter a purely intuitive state where you can better understand your emotions and other realms. Dreams are revolutionary states of consciousness that impart intuitive wisdom about being free. Here’s a personal example. Once, I went through a period of complaining a lot when nothing was working. Projects were falling through, patients were canceling appointments, I couldn’t even get the plumber to come and fix the toilet. I was in victim mode. Then I had a dream in which my deceased father came to me, and he was

moving from one location to another. I asked, “Daddy, is there anything I can get you?” Smiling, he said, “No, darling, I don’t need anything except a pen and a piece of paper in case I want to write a thank-you note.” For me, this was a wake-up call that highlighted the importance of gratefulness here and in the Hereafter. It was all I needed to adjust my attitude to being more grateful for my life. Barbara: The world seems to get wackier and scarier every day. How can your book help us overcome fear during times of terrorism, economic turmoil, and natural disasters?

to use emotions as a chance to become stronger, brighter, more. This is critical on a personal level because it frees you from suffering. But it’s just as important on a collective level because if we don’t face the fear and anger in ourselves, then we risk projecting it onto a global sphere. This creates war and massive suffering to our human family. We must find inner peace before we can have outer peace. That’s why I consider emotional freedom an inner peace movement.

Judith Orloff MD: To be free, we must view fear as something to overcome, not something to be defeated by. When you see a world with so much to be afraid of— skyrocketing gas prices, the failing economy, and violence—you must chose not to come from fear. Part of emotional freedom is making a vow not to lead a feardriven life. That must be a deep desire in your heart. Then do everything possible to overcome fear and worry with faith in goodness, and trying stay in the moment rather than catastrophizing the future. I’ll show you how to develop the courage to be centered and find non-fear based solutions to anything! Courage or fear is a choice. It’s not something that just happens to you. Barbara: I love that you say emotional freedom offers us opportunities to be heroes in our own lives. Would you elaborate? Judith Orloff MD: Absolutely. If you suffer loss, if you’re having an anxiety attack or feeling depressed or lonely—these are all very spiritual experiences to me. You become a hero in your own life as you learn

YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT... SO EAT WELL....
By M Johnson

You are what you eat….! You are what you eat, so eat well. A stupendous insight of civilizations past has now been confirmed by today's investigative, nutritional sciences. They have shown that what was once called 'The Doctrine of Signatures' was astoundingly correct. It now contends that every whole food has a pattern that resembles a body organ or physiological function and that these patterns acts as a signal or sign as to the benefit the food provides the eater. Here is just a short list of examples of Whole Food Signatures. A sliced Carrot looks like the human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye…and science shows that carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes. Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function and yes, they look exactly like the human kidneys. Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb and more look just like bones. These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you don't have enough sodium in your diet the body pulls it from the bones, making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.

A Tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart is red and has four chambers. All of the research shows tomatoes are indeed pure heart and blood food. Grapes hang in a cluster that has the shape of the heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell and all of the research today shows that grapes are also profound heart and blood vitalizing food. A Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds are on the nut just like the neo-cortex. We now know that walnuts help develop over 3 dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.

The EarthMark
Individuals tend to label themselves as belonging to separate groups: race, nationality, religion, gender, age, to name just a few. We do not see these labels. We see Souls. Peel away all the outer layers we wear, and at the core of each individual there exists a beautiful Soul, no more or less deserving than any other. We each are deserving of love and we each are deserving of the chance to live a life without fear, whether that is fear of violence, fear of hunger, fear of acceptance or just fear of living.

There is just One Planet. There is only One Humanity.

We all bear the Earthmark.

The Earthmark represents the Seal a Soul wears when it is incarnate here on Earth. It is the Soul’s bond to our common humanity. Each of us has one. The time has come to remember it is your Earthmark that is more important than any of the external labels we wear. The Humanity Healing logo is the Flower of Life with a transparent Earth in the center. The Flower of Life is the symbol of the growth and the interconnection of the human spirit. The globe is centered and transparent because we do not see boundaries separating humanity and shows our growth must be together and world-wide. Our evolution as race is not limited to a few "chosen". The Flower of Life encompasses us all.

energies into life force energy that is useful to the body. The area needs to be clear of congestion and tension so that energy can easily flow in and out. Sri Param Eswaran some times does psychic surgery, during which he removes ones inner demons via the Navel. Para-Tan uses the bija sounds of the center to remove all forms of blockage, thus returning the navel to its original state. In the past the navels that you see below generally belong to older people who have lived a stressful life, but today you can see this distortion in very young children. These distortions are more so seen in women then men. Women tend to internalize their emotion and men externalize it. The navel forms the center of the physical and spiritual body. When the navel moves from its original rounded shape to any other direction, it can cause many physical, emotional, and mental problems.

The Unhealthy Navel

By Shri Param Eswaran
The navel is considered the most important center in both the Ayurveda, Kundalini Yoga, and Taoist healing practice. Energy enters the human fetus at the navel and circulates prana, and harmonizes the moon (female) and sun (male) energies. The body is nourished from the navel energy. It balances all forces and is the center of physical gravity. It processes and transforms the Universal, Cosmic and Earth

These navels belong to models, between the ages of 18 to 25, who aspire to actresses, failing which will remain models. Looking at their navels, what would their lives be when they in their thirties.

This girl has a pull both right upwards, and downwards. She also has bad circulation. Hate to consider her life, with internal pain, menstrual, urinary tract and sexual organ, frequent bad dreams, pain in the lower part of the body, coughs and cold will be a common feature.

This person and both upward and down wards pull, and very narrow navel.

sensual pleasure. Body piercing reduces inner vitality, and then what good is enhancing stimulation and sensual pleasure. Looking at the navel piercing navels above, they all look sick. There is scant evidence in the literature of body piercing actually transmitting hepatitis B or C virus, or HIV.1 However, body piercing, like a tattoo, is a recognized epidemiological marker for increased risk of hepatitis B and C and HIV infection,5 and the practice carries the real risk of blood borne transmission. Canadian Blood Services will not accept blood from a donor who has had body piercing within the year

What navel piercing has done to this navel and person? Body piercing is a popular art form, where the traditional piercing was the earlobe and the nose in India and other Asian countries, but now the ear cartilage, nasal septum, eyebrow, tongue, cheek, nipple, navel, labia, penis. The other areas mentioned above should be free form piercing, as one can block the nadis from flowing, this can bring about energetic imbalance. Apart from normal ailments, one will lack energy, and age faster.

This will create problems with rectum, acetum, appendix, and anus, as they are also pulling towards their reproductive organs.

Shri Param Eswaran is the Father of Para-Tan healing from the Mahavidya Temple, Tamil Nadu, India. The nature of Para-Tan is to awaken and activate the Divine Feminine within, whose primary qualities are: LOVE, GRACE, and COMPASSION.

Look how deformed all the navel are, all were taken from girls between the age of 18 to 25. What would their lived be when they grow old. Functionality is not a motivating factor for body piercing. According to a survey of 134 readers of Body Art magazine, most people do it because they like the way it looks and because piercing enhances stimulation and

Negative emotion/stress creates disease

By Dr. MTKvis, MD
~ Everything is Energy ~ Everything in the universe is energy. Nothing is actually solid. Instead objects are made up of microscopic particles vibrating at such a fast rate that they appear solid. Our limited sense of sight doesn't let us see the movement, or vibration, of the particles. Every object, including the human organs, has a natural healthy vibratory rate referred to as "resonance". If a part of the body begins to vibrate out of resonance or harmony, it creates what we term dis-ease Jonathan Goldman, says: "If parts of the body become imbalanced, they may be healed through projecting the proper and correct frequencies back into the body" ~ Disease Prevention is Possible ~ Part of the intense interest in the field of vibrational medicine is the knowledge that disharmony shows up in the energy field before it becomes a problem in the body. If imbalances can be detected while still in the energy field, theoretically dis-ease can be avoided altogether. Another plus for vibrational medicine is that it seems to have no negative side effects. It does; however, tend to produce more smiles, more energy, and an overall feeling of wellness. Most vibrational medicine techniques are complementary to one another and to traditional medicine (acupuncture, yoga, meditation associated with adequate nutrition, healthy lifestyle)

~ Negative Emotion Creates Disease ~ Gregg Braden, author of Awakening to Zero Point and Walking Between the Worlds, has research results which indicate that negative emotion causes the frequency of the body to decrease. On the other hand, feelings of love, joy, laughter, and other positive emotions cause the frequency of the body to increase Jane Buckle, M.D., international lecturer, and former Assistant to the Queen's Physician of England, says that if a person has an auto accident and doesn't deal with the fear that it caused, within 2 years it will show up as disease in the body

The Harmonic Scale of Emotion, as described by Robert Tennyson Stevens, indicates which emotions is high frequency and which ones are not. The highest frequency emotion is enthusiasm. Love and joy also fall into this category. This is followed by pain (emotional or physical) which is followed by anger. The next lower frequency emotion is fear, which is followed by grief. Below grief is apathy. Finally, the lowest frequency emotion is unconsciousness (meaning it is so awful we have completely blocked out those situations from our lives) . If we are experiencing anything less than enthusiasm in any area of our life, we have lowered our frequency and are running the risk of dis-ease. In order to be healthy, people must increase their frequency ~ Chakras and the Human Energy System ~ Ancient Indian texts accurately describe the human energy system. Information and diagrams describe in detail where the main energy centers, called chakras, are located. They also suggest what part of the endocrine system each chakra center works with and how imbalances in the

chakra affect the physical, mental, and emotional state of the person. Specific vibrational healing tools are suggested for correcting imbalances depending on the particular energy center involved. These energy centers and the energy field surrounding the body, called the aura, can now be seen using Kirlian and other special photographic equipment. The latest technology in the health is called "Vibrational Healing" or "Energy Medicine". Vibrational healing and energy medicine are nothing new. These healing modalities have been successfully practiced in numerous forms all over the world for thousands of years. Only recently has it come to the forefront in western society. That's because scientists have finally developed instruments that are sophisticated enough to measure how and why this mode of healing works. Considered "quackery" in the past, many of these "alternative techniques" are now being used in tandem with mainstream medical treatment. The new term is "Complementary Medicine"

Using the Mind to Heal the Heart
By Laura Fine
In Saint Exupery's The Little Prince, he states, "It is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye."

natural life force impulse is to move. If you restrict its path, in one direction, it will look for movement in a different direction. If you continue to restrict its path until it can no longer find a path for movement, it will pulsate

The heart is not just a physical organ, it is an energy center, a place of consciousness, a space of expanded awareness of the existence of essence, the essence of the universe which is love, that lives and pulsates inside of us. It is our most natural state. Our "other" states are those of lifetimes of learned distortions of the essence of our True Self. My teacher says, "We use the mind to heal the mind." He is referring to the True Mind, which lives near the physical heart, not the brain. All distress that isn't life threatening is based in learned distorted perspectives of our mental patterns, sometimes referred to as "belief systems." These belief systems repetitively replay like cassette tapes in our mind. Our belief systems can either perpetuate a state of well being and ease, or a state of distress. Some of us who may already be working with positive thinking, understand this concept. But the question is, if "positive thinking" were really that effective, why hasn't it worked for me consistently? Why do I still struggle with old repetitive negative hurts? If you look at a cell under a microscope its

In place, its walls will begin to thicken, and finally, it dies. Inherent in our nature are spontaneous creative impulses looking for life force expression in every direction. When one direction is thwarted, we create defenses; we then look in another direction until we can find movement. The more restricted our possibilities for movement, the thicker our walls become. These restrictions and walls create rigid patterns in the neurological matter of the mind. The subconscious and unconscious mind retain these deeply patterned thought rigidities. These patterns have an energetic dynamic that originated in our childhood, infancy, and

uncountable past life times. These unconscious patterns express themselves as restrictions to our present life interactions, relationships and ambitions. They cause us pain, distress, a sense

cognitive understanding, release the cellular trauma from its rigidified state and allow that once stagnant rigidified energy of the belief systems to again flow freely.

It can feel something like an internal shower of tingling sensations that can be experienced as invigorating, highly stimulating, small body spasms or fluid electricity that floods throughout the body. This energy then "washes" over the mind, the experience itself bringing new insights and clarity where there might have been confusion or doubt. This process is not "magical," it is physiological, though our responses to it sometimes feel as though it is miraculous, enlightening, and uplifting. This process is the activation of the body's natural innate self-correcting healing mechanism bringing us closer to the heart's natural state which is one of unconditional love and The True Mind's natural state, which is one of clarity and serenity.

of low self esteem, insecurity and other limitations. As much as we may possess an intellectual, rational understanding about "why" we may feel defensive or insecure in a particular situation, it often does not diminish our feelings of discomfort. Our frustration lies in the knowing presence of our True Mind that senses we are capable of more pleasure.

When we explore the invisible electromagnetic realm of the physiological and energetic dynamic that contains the constricting experience of discomfort, the light of consciousness exposes the distorted cellular memory message and brings about a "combustive experience" that necessitates change. Conscious awareness of the emotional content, life force (unconstricted breath), and

Spiritual Awakening: From the Unreal to the Real
By Michael David Lawrience "Lead me from Darkness into Light, from the Unreal to the Real, from Death to Immortality." *Sanskrit Prayer.

The voices of all of humanity thunder in an agonizing roar, clamoring for the unreal upon our planet. In this din a voice like that of the Golem from Lord of the Rings raises above all sounds, My precious … mine … all mine, which echoes the voice inside us that clutches at having more and more material stuff. Inside each of us lurks a facade of illusion. Within this facade we believe we know our real selves. We, however, attach our identity to the facade, which is unreal. This facade attaches to all the false things around us. Our facade struggles in a war within us as most things in the world reflect and maintain the illusion of the facade such as accumulation of more and more products, clothes, cars, houses, and money. If we had more sensitivity, we would feel the pain this illusion of reality creates in our bodies For example, what we grasp for as money exists only as electronic bits passing from one computer to the

next with no real value. Our paper money has no real value either for no gold standard backs it. We accept the illusion of the value of money yet; it has no inner value within itself as gold does. This unreality we live in calls out to destroy life. It crushes our souls. It creates misery, pain, and suffering. Yet, we cling in desperation to our unreality for fear of losing all the material “stuff” we have accumulated and create more suffering for ourselves. What if we could move beyond this unreality rather than being trapped within it forever? Would we be willing to take the necessary steps? What if we could gradually loosen the hold of illusion upon us? This would mean a shift in our

consciousness from material accumulation and comfort to a yearning for spiritual awakening.

may take many years or lifetimes. This occurs as we evolve in consciousness when we become a fuller expression of our Soul. All the aspects of our warring personality come under the influence of our Souls. Our Soul replaces the illusions of our unreal self held in our mind. The seed of illusion binding us tightly to our unreal self breaks open. This seed loses its foothold in our body and only memory remains, which also eventually dissolves. For the seed to dissolve, however, we need to enter the pain, to go inside the pain. Outside exists only illusion. Lana on her path of spiritual awakening explains her experience of the seed of illusion dissolving. "I awoke with the weight of all of humanities illusion crushing down upon me. Voices of all the false selves in the world roared in my ears. I sensed the world’s illusion in every cell of my body and in my spine and neck. I feared I would implode from the agony. My husband, a healer, physically held my left and right occipitals. As I writhed in pain upon the floor, he remained in an empty place neutral of any emotion or reaction. Unwilling to hold on to my unreal self any longer and the illusion I had lived for all my life, I entered the pain, which moved up my body and head and into the frontal lobes of my brain where I saw with inner vision light circulating. Then I sensed movement down my body, bit by bit, until it reached my tailbone and legs. The false, the illusion of my unreal

One of the first steps towards spiritual awakening means desiring and practicing methods to bring more light into our physical bodies. It means shifting from the outer to a focus on improving our inner lives. More light enters our bodies once we experience a “soul merge.” Receiving more light assists to begin to know our Real Self, shifting from the unreal to the real, from death into life. Our Real Self has also been known as our soul and the divine spark with us. I mentioned a soul merge, which

self, finally moved out of my body. I sensed it like a giant jellyfish with tentacles. Throughout my ordeal the music of the Moola Mantra played. It has been given by two spiritually awakened masters from India, Amma and Bhagavan. They say it awakens the divine presence in our heart, among other things. For me it sounded as the voice of freedom and like the breath of the Divine moved through my body. As the light came through the body, it also came back up my body. My body opened like a rose. As a result of my experience, which differs for each of us, I aligned more with my life purpose, which involves realigning the DNA in people. I believe most humans remain unaware of their attachment to illusion. Like hermit crabs humans constantly shift the sands of illusion on the lookout for more and more things to consume. Like some hermit crabs some humans seek a bigger shell to settle into to feel safer because of fear of attack from others. The illusions of our unreal self held in our minds drive us to anger and attack. These illusions cling to life at any cost, which keep us trapped in suffering. In reality we really only attack ourselves, like one arm wielding a knife and slicing away at our other arm, for we only fight against our own misery. Our unreal self has no life, it only believes in the illusion of life. We need help to unlock the illusion which has become trapped in our

own physical bodies. Inner and outer teachers can only take us so far. We need spiritually awakened beings in physical bodies to take us the rest of the way to awakening. These awakened beings embody Divine Grace, the other 50% of the equation to liberate us from suffering, which we otherwise would be trapped in forever. Amma and Bhagavan, two awakened beings, from the Oneness University in Chennai, India have assisted me. “They are like the spirit, all pervading yet abiding in the deepest recesses of one's Being,” Oneness University. I have traveled twice to India to retreats where I received daily Oneness Blessings – a transfer of divine energy, which dissolves the illusion of separateness. A neurological shift in the brain results as awakening gradually occurs. I will clarify that I have had no direct contact with either Amma or Bhagavan. They instruct and bring their students known as “dasas” into awakening who than work with the public giving Oneness Blessings and teachings."

Bhagavan also gives public transmissions of the Oneness Blessing and teaching over the internet, which reaches people all over the world.

Only Divine Grace carries us through the doorway beyond suffering into feeling and knowing the oneness of all life.

I stress again we can only make the final shift from the unreal to the real, from separateness into oneness, and from suffering into joy and compassion through the Grace of awakened beings.

RESPONSES TO STRESS AND ANGER
By Mary Cook

Stress and anger are natural, normal human responses to internal and external elements in life. Expressing these feelings in ways that do not harm us or others, and ultimately focusing on what will help us recover, and find solutions, improvements or insight, is healthy and mature. It is when anger and stress become chronic or intense enough to exacerbate or create problems that a re-evaluation of our responses is in order. Our bodies react to stress and anger by becoming tense, rigid, constricted or destructively expansive. With stress, we tend to have scattered, fragmented, or low energy. Anger generally results in narrowly focused high energy with adrenalin surges. People can become addicted to the excessive adrenalin associated with anger. Its’ feeling of exciting high intensity aliveness can hide feelings of depression, lethargy, a sense of inferiority, fear and emptiness. The stress hormone cortisol is present in high amounts with anger or stress.

When we allow ourselves to experience underlying feelings of sadness, pain and loss, our tears lower the level of cortisol. Breathing during periods of stress and anger tends to be shallow, erratic, withholding, hard, and rough or hyperventilating, which increases stress and anger. Our bodies maintain the energies of unhealed anger and stress in tissues, muscles and organs. They become weak areas of the body, vulnerable to aches, pain, injury, disease, lowered mobility, strength or functioning. Destructive behavior increases the amount of negative energy held in the body, thereby lowering immune system support. Chronic anger or stress hijacks our internal guidance system, giving us physical sensations that promote greater strife, rather than healthy selfcare. When we lack healthy personal caretaking, we are more dependent upon others for gratification. This inevitably leads to more disappointment and anger. If we were physically or sexually abused, especially in childhood, our brain may have protected us from painful body awareness. Whether we disassociated, denied or repressed painful sensations, we learned to disconnect from signals of danger that in later life can prompt us to set boundaries, disengage or cry for help. Sometimes in the absence of healthy bonding, harmful interactions are defined as positive, because they are the only sign of attention. In this case we may have learned to idealize abuse. We may think that our tolerance for abuse indicates strength, adaptability, lack of neediness and vulnerability. This can also precipitate self-harm. Willfulness and excessive need for control is typically a reaction to earlier trauma over which

we had no control. Significant self-centeredness likewise, is a common response to an absence of sufficient attention, interest, value and feelings of love in childhood. When our childhood experiences with vulnerable feelings were not met with acceptance, understanding and helpfulness, we may deny them. This then sabotages our ability to identify the roots of problems and resolve them. This denial also prevents us from developing a firm identity and a supportive, nurturing, positively empowering relationship with ourselves. Our relationships with others then lack acceptance and tolerance or have excessive fear associated with them. Other consequences of past maltreatment include maintaining tension in the body, having startle responses, being hypervigilant and hypersensitive to any cues of danger, and needing to control our environment and people around us. If we keep our body braced, tensed and alerts, we think we’ll be prepared for any necessary defensive or offensive actions to protect ourselves. Conversely we believe that if we allow ourselves to relax and be vulnerable, then when we are hurt, it will hurt more. The truth is contrary to this notion. Maintaining the tension or intention of harm, attracts harmful people and situations to us, creating a selffulfilling prophecy. And we are not learning resiliency, recovery, or healing, nor are we cultivating positive emotions in our bodies. This stance also places us in an adversary role with life and keeps us in a child dependent reactive state. Hopefully at some point, we realize that our relationship with stress and anger has compounded our problems. We can find healthy, safe support in which to heal earlier pain, and explore, understand and release vulnerable feelings and physical tension. We

can choose which thoughts to empower and which to disempower. We are not meant to be puppets to dominant habit thoughts, nor to our childhood experiences. We can learn calm, deep, relaxed breathing, and practice feeling peace inside of us. We can develop greater tenderness and empathy for ourselves and others. We can accept the constancy of change and know that it is enough to choose responses to life that further our psychological and spiritual growth.

We can appreciate being an adult and accept responsibility for our own well being, rather than over-depend on others through blame, intimidation or submission and passivity. We can meet stress and anger with compassionate inquiry that leads to support, insight, healing and solutions. We can develop greater faith in a Higher Power by accepting periods of emptiness, confusion, and loss of what is familiar, in order to become more enlightened. We can understand that what allows us to move forward is what we leave behind. And we can use daily prayer and meditation to remind ourselves that the greatest power does not come from stress and anger, but from spiritual love.

mind...... For an easy kick-off I recommend to read "Thich Nhat Hanh" - he is just amaaaaazing! He will instantly change your life, because he teaches you why you should SMILE even at the red traffic light or in traffic jam, because this is a god-sent whiff to give you a little extra moment of peace and rest, especially (!) when you are in a hurry..... And you can't change the situation anyway..... Then I'd recommend that you continue with Neale Donal Walsch "Talks with God" - fascinating! God is my best friend and just a brilliant coach, who does both: supporting my dreams but also slowing me down in order to re-reflect or to have me see the reality behind the veil of the reality; i.e to see the fourth dimension (i.e. my and other soul oscillations and vibrations which delete our visually very delimited threedimensional view of constantly "higher, further and faster") If you want to dig deeper in your soul and spirit, then read Viktor Frankl : "Man's search for MEANING" - stunning! This doctor-philosopher from Vienna propelled a new era of psychology, called logotherapy! As opposed to the Freud'ian and Adler'ian narrow perspectives on lust- and/or status-driven neuroses, he emphazises (wo) men’s FREE WILL to find proper MEANING in everything we do or experience: provided we listen to our sound and quiet conscience which is telling us what we shall (divinely become) and devote ourselves in self-distance (yet self-awareness!) with humility to personal missions and / or other people. The key to a meaningful life is hence "taking on

Three ways to empower your soul
By Dirk Boehmer Dear friends, I'd love to share with you three spiritual jewels which you may enjoy in little slices in quiet moments in your daily life (i.e. in bed, when you are on vacations or go on a retreat).... They are fairly easy to read and grasp, chapterby-chapter, leaving ample time to reflect and let your thoughts, spiritual perceptions and selfawareness slowly sink into your soul and

full responsibility" in everything we do, in the sense of answering the abundance questions life poses us each day, every minute (and not vice versa ;-) Hence the word Response.ibility and not Ask.ibility ;-))) And our free will heals us to always decide to act in this way or in that way or in another of 1.001 possible ways. Therefore, if we fill our decisions with love and dedication and devotion, than we find true meaning. We even can find meaning in suffering; it is just a question of the adequate perspective. Hence, finding true satisfying meaning in life every day is the result of proper selfquestioning: What. FOR (divine destination) am I inborn here onto this planet? And not: WHY did I land just on this weird planet and what the heck am I actually doing here? ;-)) (Btw: Frankl earned for his thinking’s nearly 25 honorary doctorates and various lecture seats at America's top ten Universities in the 60's-90's ....) But reaching down to your soul and living inside-out (and not vice versa) might feel like a butterfly's arduously emerging out of his cocoon..... ;-)) But I am sure that one day you will fly and soar and feel light like a hot-air balloon without all this parental, social, conjugal etc. pseudoballast which so far kept you involuntarily grounded all the time..... As to Frankl, Walsh, Thich N.H, Csikszentmihalyi and many other great modern spiritual minds,

LUCK and FLOW are NOT the result of having reached the top of the Maslow pyramid in terms of self-actualization (if not often even mental self-"masturbation") - LUCK and FLOW are just the outome of the quite simple fact that we excel in striving and aspiring to just BE (according to our sound conscience! - and not to our narrow alleged consciousness - this is a very fine distinction! ;-)) Hence we should appreciate and LOVE who we really ARE (as given upon birth!) , because each of us is in truth an individual and UNIQUE uncut jewel - and it is our OWN response.ibility to cut this divine gift to perfection - and not to let others to mis-shape and squander us ... And that's exactly how we should educate our children... because education means in Latin educare "to bring up / bring out", in the sense of ex- "out" + ducere "to LEAD"... Proper education is hence help for self-help of our kids to "lead" their own TRUE lives according to their own kernel of being, their own predispositions, skills, virtues and soul vibrations, which (if properly interlaced all together) form a human being which manages the evolution from pure being over person up to being a (hopefully sustainable) true authentic personality..... So start to climb your own evolutionary spiritual "ladder" right now.....

World Visions
Iran and the need for international election monitors

By Rene Wadlow

Dear Friends, Since the protests concerning the contested elections in Iran continue and have become 'front page news', the call of citizens of the world for permanent UN election monitors is timely. Thus I would be glad if you could share it with others. With best wishes, ~ Rene Wadlow

massive show of democratic stirring by a show of force and by cutting off means of communication — web sites and cellphones. However, the fact that hundreds of thousands came out on the avenues of Tehran and in less numbers in other cities indicates a failure of the repressive policies. Even if large protests do not continue, a ‘wind of change’ has blown over Iran.

The post-election demonstrations in Iran which have led to deaths and arrests indicate that a large number of Iranians believe that the election count has been the result of fraud. The regime had hoped to prevent a

The Iranian government had declined the offers of international monitoring of the elections, and thus the world community is left with only the word of the Iranian government that the election process was free and fair. The wide victory of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad — 62.6 percent against some 34 percent for his main challenger, Mir Hussein Moussavi, goes against earlier opinion polls and an increasing popularity of Moussavi in the late stages of the election campaign. Mir Hussein Moussavi had been Prime Minister during the long and costly-in-life war with Iraq (1980-1988). After four years of President Ahmadinejad’s weak economic policies as well as his confrontation with many other countries,

many Iranians were looking for a change. For the elections, President Ahmadinejad tried to build his support in the rural areas with last moment rural development efforts which his opponents saw as transparent ‘bribes’. He had lost much support among educated Middle Class urban voters who wanted a better standard of living, employment opportunities for the young and greater personal freedoms. Thus, the election could have been close even if Ahmadinejad had won fairly, having the resources of the State at his control. Now, there is great scepticism concerning the outcome both in Iran and in the world community. The scepticism is so great that a promise by the Guide of the Iranian regime, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has been made concerning a recount in certain contested areas. However, electoral fraud is rarely at the counting stage. One can recount a stuffed ballot box and come up with the same number of votes. This is why the whole electoral process needs to be monitored by independent election agents.

rights, to strengthen the rule of law and to ensure pluralistic democracy. Election observation work is an important activity for the 56 member States of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and its Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights housed in Warsaw, Poland. The Office for Democratic Institutions, originally called the Office for Free Elections, first played an important role in the democratic transition in post-communist countries. While its observation of elections is its most visible task, the Office also conducts a number of other useful election-related activities: reviewing electoral legislation, training observers, and publishing guidelines and handbooks about electoral issues.

Citizens of the World have often called for international, basically UN supervision, of elections. The organization of elections remains a prerogative of the national – administrative sub-divisions of the State, and local governments. However, in cases where the election campaign can be tense and prone to violence as was the presidential election of Zimbabwe, or when there has been a past history of fraud, international, independent monitors are important agents of fair elections and help to protect human

The Office for Democratic Institutions is concerned with a” wholistic” approach to election monitoring including the following:
- Respect for basic fundamental freedoms such as the freedom of assembly, of association, and expression; - Respect for the civil and political rights of the candidates and voters; - Compilation of accurate voter lists;

- Equal opportunities to campaign in a free environment; - Equitable access to the media; - Impartial election administrative bodies; - Unhindered access for international and domestic election observers; - Effective representation and participation of women: - Effective representation of national minorities; - Access for disabled voters; - Honest and transparent counting and tabulation of the votes; - Effective complaints and appeals process with an independent judiciary.

to request international monitoring for its presidential elections. Now it is too late. It is unlikely that a new election will be held to replace the contested one. The Iranian elections have indicated a wide current of support for change. The hesitations of the ruling circle concerning post-election manifestations have highlighted division of views within this ruling circle. The demonstrations have also indicated to the world community as a whole the need

for independent election monitoring. Steps should be taken quickly for the UN to provide such services drawing on the rich experience of the OSCE.

The United Nations has no comparable permanent election monitoring office, but on an ad hoc basis the UN played an important monitoring role in the first multi-racial elections in South Africa, and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights has provided election aid and monitoring in countries such as Nepal as that country was coming out of a decade of armed violence. The Iranian government would have been wise

Iran
By EtherEagle

There has been a very strong push in the mainstream media to demonize the government of Iran. This has been going on a long time. Every since they were declared part of the "axis of evil" there has been constant negative attention given to them. I remember when the propaganda machine was rolling on another country within the "axis of evil", Iraq.

The nightly declaration of weapons of mass destruction, Iraq was linked to 9-11; the people are being oppressed by the Iraqi government. Does anyone else see the correlation?

The murder of one young woman, as tragic as it was, pales in comparison to 1 MILLION murdered in Iraq. It saddens me to no end to live in a world where anyone must be murdered. I understand. I understand more then I want to. My whole point of this post is to ask you to look beyond the mainstream propaganda, and let’s not turn Neda into another mass murder, made possible by the weapons of mass deception. We speak out for Neda, as well we should, but we should speak out for All victims of murder, oppression, and genocide.

I find it resonating with truth. Sometimes the truth is very hard to accept. We learn a great deal about ourselves when we see how easily we can be deceived. The great spiritual people of our time were rarely deceived by the powers that be. If we are half the spiritual beings we think we are, we will learn to be honest with ourselves. We must, as spiritual beings stand up to all oppression, not just what the nightly news tells us to! Let’s not let the rising consciousness of this phenomenon known as Neda, go on without turning the brilliant shining light on ourselves. Let us have the same courage and shine that light in our own backyard. We might be amazed at what we shall find. Thank you, and may all who are oppressed and weak of spirit find the courage and strength to stand up and civilly disobey their oppressors. For in my mind that is the ultimate act of love, to peacefully stand up to the oppressors and say no! For in doing so you are giving the ultimate gift to your fellow man, the chance of true freedom.

But in time I've realized, she does indeed--and sees it much better than most of us. She sees it for the illusion causing it. What she sees truly is the amazing, powerful being the person truly is--yet they have decided to stay in the cloud. In fact, they have decided to BECOME the cloud. Now, I have certainly experienced a lot of pain myself, and to those of you especially who still are in the pain of losing a loved one, ill-health, financial mess-- my heart goes out. But I am learning, time and time again, that those things we feel IN that pain-that we are alone, that we are a failure, that we are corruptible, weak, vulnerable at the core of your being, as your true self--simply are not true

Relationships
The interconnectiveness among all human beings and, consequently, the relationship among all beings is the limelight of this section.

We are always connected. As you learn to really feel this connection, you will know. Make a habit each day to remember your connection-- pray, meditate, and think happy thoughts. Hold the intention that you will be more aware of your true self and your connection to God, Source, and the Universe. You will be answered. You are not the cloud. Connect with the light and let it shine.

But I thought I was the cloud!

I've seen several energy workers in action, and with one in particular, I thought--doesn't she seem a bit callous about this other person's pain and issues? Callous is far too strong a word--just a little impatient, listening in a "get to the point" sort of way. Being the sensitive person I am, I wondered at this. Doesn't she see their pain?

Why do we hate?

"DO WE HATE BECAUSE WE DO NOT LOVE OR DO WE HATE BECAUSE WE LOST WHAT WE ONCE LOVED" By Lourdes Pagan
We move thru life wondering how we got there and trying to figure out "WHO WE ARE", after all that is the whole point for us as we join the human race experience. There are going to be trials and tribulations that will be happen as we move thru everyday life, even when we try to avoid them, we still have to accept them. Things that perhaps are out of necessity we all most learn even when our hearts are saying "NO". That include letting go of people that are in our lives, when we do not want to. There are times that we are going to experience blessings and there are going to be times that we are going to experience turmoil. But because of all of these "DO WE START TO HATE". Because our lives had changed! Do we hate as a Defense Mechanism so as to protect ourselves from others? Or do we hate because we do not know how to deal with our lives anymore. We surround our lives with a wall so as to protect us, it is almost as if we place all

our pain, miseries, anguish inside a chest and we lock it and throw the key away. See the problem is that no matter what we all do life goes on with or with out us. Do we really want to be standing still? oo Do we live for the moment and face the future without regrets or do we continue a path of destruction by endless hate?

Spiritual

Journey

Specialness
By Chris Anderson/Onefeather As a teenager I often roamed throughout the foothills of the Rocky Mountains and sought out places along the Arkansas River that I imagined to be “sacred”. I revealed one of these hallowed areas to my grandfather and he asked me what it was that I thought made this particular spot unique. I was at a loss for words and finally I said, “I don’t know. I think it’s just a feeling that I have when I go there.” He smiled and asked me to think about it more.

The following day he told me that there was not a spot anywhere in the universe that the presence of the Creator did not fill; I could not, in fact, find a place that was not sacred. Over the next few days I considered his words and visited a number of places where I had felt a separate and personal connectedness that I could not recognize in the greater world that I inhabited. I knew that “my places” were special for me even if God was all pervasive and everywhere. While he (my grandfather) had not rebuked me, he had caused me to consider the bigger picture.

Finally, I approached him, looking for resolution in the quandary that he had presented me with.

“Why do some places seem different ... special?” “You have made them special because you still imagine yourself to be apart from the Greater Life that surrounds you. This dirt, these trees and stones ... everything that exists, knows itself to be within the mind of God and therefore God’s expression. Only man reasons himself to be apart from all existence. In your life you shall meet many who hold one idea of God above others, people who look for specialness as a way to validate their separation. Do not confront them, allow yourself to honor them and their need to make a place or an event especially their own. But know that whenever you place one thing or one person above another you have created a belief that ultimately puts gaps in the presence of the Creator ... places where you will fall through the web of life and imagine yourself to be weak, vulnerable ... separate. It is all one ... all one life; and therein lays your power, your strength ... your invulnerability. The little man who is separate can be maimed and destroyed. The man who has come to know that he is Life can never be overwhelmed ... he’s invulnerable ... he will exist forever. Always know that you are that Life.” To the mind of a fourteen year old his words were an ocean and I was standing on the shore, afraid to enter the surf and attempt to swim. Three years later his death caused me to recognize that I was standing on the beach alone. I began to allow the tide to engulf my feet but it was not until after I returned from Viet Nam that I started to enter the sea. It has taken me nearly forty years to learn how to swim. Writer, artist and mystic, Chris now devotes himself , in the latter half of his life to the quest for spiritual truth. His first novel, written under the pen name of Sanyasuk Andekshkwe (Silver Crow) is about to be released in late July of2009. http://www.songofsilvercrow.com/

A Song of Silver Crow

The Story
A Song of Silver Crow
A Song of Silver Crow is the story of a descendent of Indian and White ancestors, a man raised and educated in the prevailing White Man’s society... yet schooled in the ways of the Red Man by his Native American grandfather. Hip to the living conditions of Twenty First Century America and being of a mystical and intuitive bent, Silver Crow recognizes he’s being drawn into a quest that will eventually aid in resolving his personal inner conflicts and, ultimately, those between the two races of his origin... presenting the world with a new understanding of the transcendental nature of love and truth. Aware of First Nation legends of a pale-skinned healer who had walked among “the People”, Silver Crow has long held this teacher of peace and forgiveness in great respect. A revered part of their history, the legend has been passed thru oral tradition by storytellers from generation to generation within his and many other tribes on both continents. He realizes why, upon first encounter with the White Man, the Indians found the Gospels of the Apostles to be familiar ... even comforting. The Story is the tale of elemental wisdom, inspiration and optimism that takes the reader from a cottage on a small lake in the backwoods of Wisconsin to Jerusalem, the spiritual heart of three of the worlds great religions... and beyond. Packed with intrigue adventure and mayhem, the pace is sensuous, engrossing and rich in detail, often filled with rational conjecture and verifiable yet little known fact. Secret societies like the Illuminati and the Knights Templar run a dark current of opposition to the quest, seeking to gain control of or destroy the prize being sought by Silver Crow, his client Timothy and their cohorts along the way.

What Is Truth And Does It Exist?
(Excerpt from the Original Article)

By Posted Un1v3rs@t1l3

Truth is a child of Time - Don Ford.
Certain truths change as time goes on. It was once believed that the world was flat. We now know this idea to be false. Scientists claim Pluto

can no longer be considered a planet because it does not meet the new definition of a planet. This is a more recent discovery hinging on our experience with space. New species are discovered everyday in the depths of the oceans; places humans were unable to reach

before now. Time continues and we discover things previously believed to be non-existent or deemed to be untrue. So, what is truth? By definition truth is conformity to fact or actuality. Is that to say that truth conforms to facts? I think that might be a human misconception. It seems as though facts conform to truth since facts change with the passage of time. Truth is and always will be. Nothing will ever change it. What will change are our perceptions, understandings, and evidence brought forth by the ever inconclusive quest for the truth. Plato says truth relies on knowledge. According to Descartes anything that can be doubted cannot be true. James countered that truth is always personal. These men hold a few of the many beliefs that form the structure of the universe. Some believe objectivity equals untruth. Objectivity stifles the oneness of the individual. Others proclaim truth be subjective. It is manipulated by our ideas of relativity. What the real truth is, we shall never know. There are no forms of truth that can be agreed on by everyone. Hence, the truth remains on the tips of our tongues and fingers; well within reach. It will always rest in the palm of our hand, only to slip through our fingers as we close our iron clad fists, destroying a large part of that truth. Plato’s position was that truth is relative to knowledge and that knowledge must be determined first. Meaning, one must first come up with a way to differentiate opinion from genuine knowledge. Knowledge is defined as true belief. Also, knowledge is categorized as being theoretical or practical. Practical knowledge consists of those things that we need the skills to do, such as, play an instrument, use appliances, or make a cake. Theoretical knowledge is that which has to be proven through evaluation of systematic

correlations. This is likened to the transformation of a hypothesis into theory using the scientific method accepted by psychologists. Next, reality is divided into two forms: the sensible and the intelligible. In other words, the sensible world changes and has a sense of order to it; seasons, growth, etc. The intelligible world is unchanging. What is true will be true for eternity since it transcends space and time. Plato exemplified this notion in his theory of forms labeled Platonic Form. These forms are “independently existing, no spatial, no temporal “somethings” (“kinds,” “types,” or “sorts”) that cannot be known through the senses. Knowledge is always about Forms”. Plato’s forms are ideas in the mind, yet are free from the mind. These forms are real and pure in actuality. They do not rely on changing times and opinions. Meaning, they are real, but are not physical. Examples of these forms include: virtues like goodness; mathematical relations like triangularity: the concept of having three sides; and sensible properties, like, beauty. He claims there is only one form of a particular thing. There are many things, though, that can share the qualities of that form. Ex: One owns a red car. Due to sun exposure the color fades over time becoming less red. Meaning, it is still a form of red, yet due to fading its shared properties in the form red decreases. However, this does not change the original form of the color red. So, we are to believe that the truth does not exist solely due to our belief in it. Truth exists independently of perception and perspective. Descartes on the other hand felt that truth, in general, is what we conceive of with clarity and distinction. In reality then, only mathematical deduction is reliable in discovering the truth. Descartes was a rationalist. He rejected knowing anything that was not clear and

distinctive. Rationalists’ belief is that reason is the main source of knowledge. Therefore, anything that can be doubted is not true. Two kinds of knowledge are: a posteriori and a priori. A posteriori knowledge is verifiable through empirical means. This particular knowledge is changeable and not regarded as universal. A priori knowledge is reasoned and without reliance on the senses. Experience does not play a role in this knowledge. The coherence theory of truth evaluates new ideas on their basis of rational coherence and on previously tried and proven truths. There were rules to be followed in finding the truth. In his work, Rules for the Direction of the Mind, Descartes laid out twenty-one rules. His method for finding truth is known as methodic doubt which holds one to doubt everything that can possibly be doubted. Even by the most miniscule doubt. Before then philosophy did not demand individual, rational comprehension. He elaborated on his beliefs through a series of meditations titled Meditations on First Philosophy. In his second meditation he queried a piece of wax for its truth. This piece of wax was found to have certain qualities about it, such as, taste, shape, color, etc. When heated this piece of wax took on completely different characteristics. The color and consistency changed. It was liquefied and did not taste of the sweetness of the honeycomb as it once had before. He found this to be the same piece of wax, yet different due to his perception of it. So, the truth found in that piece of wax is not based on sensory information. It must be left to the intuition of the mind. William James felt that truth was always personal, being contingent on the eye of the beholder. He was a philosopher and a psychologist who believed in pragmatism. “Pragmatism is the belief that ideas have

meaning or truth value to the extent that they produce practical results and effectively further our aims”. We live in accordance with beliefs that match our own feelings and experiences. The will to believe rests on the foundation that life demands two things: response and action. We must believe in something. Forced options are decisions that have to be made one way or another. Not deciding on something is a decision, also, and life does not allow us to live unattached, without interest. The pragmatic theory of meaning states that truth happens to an idea. In essence, we test ideas to see if they are true. Only when we have tested an idea against our own experience and deemed it to be so can we accept that truth. Beliefs are viewed as adaptations. They are only valid if they help us through life. Truth is not important. What is important is the usefulness of an idea as applied in our personal lives. James’ belief in self-fulfilling prophecy justifies how we manifest truth in our own lives by believing so strongly in something that it comes true. Ex: A friend believes they are unintelligent and cannot pass a class they are enrolled in. Meanwhile, they continue to do all their assignments constantly reminding themselves of that belief. This leads to self-sabotage and they end up fulfilling that prophecy that they are unintelligent and will fail the class. Therefore, their belief was so strong in this that they caused themselves to fail the course. Henry Ford was credited with reasoning, “Whether you think you can or think you can’t, either way you are right”. If one believes something is true about them whether negative or positive, either way it is true due to their belief in that truth. Many different beliefs are prevalent in the study of philosophy and the ideas contained therein. Kant’s belief in truth encompassed

both empirical and rationalist views. Empiricism is the belief that all knowledge is derived from the senses only. Rationalism believes all knowledge comes from reason. He united these two views with his findings that knowledge is subject to both sensory experience and reason. This is referred to as Kantian Formalism. Bertrand Russell introduced what we know as the correspondence theory of truth. This asserts that an idea, belief, or thought is true if what it refers to actually exists. This theory is the foundation of empiricism. Nietzsche chalked truth up to a matter of mere perspective. Truth transcends what we believe religiously or morally. He deemed knowledge to be merely an invention. Kierkegaard reasoned to discover truth is to find the truth that works for me, individually. If one does not recognize the truth when one sees it, it becomes inconsequential to them. Accepting objectivity is a bias in itself. David Hume’s position opposed that there is no logical way to trust in the existence of an external reality. We create our own world of truth and lies through the imagination. Also, our experiences have a pattern to them. We are able to accumulate different perceptions of ourselves looking in a mirror while changing our stance, but we can never see the whole perspective at once due to the shift of our perceptions. These views can be seen and expressed through the many different cultures and individual belief systems that we encounter through contact with others. From my point of view, truth is a first cousin to knowledge. It seems as though truth relies on the fundamentals of knowledge. Truth for the most part is relative. So, truth is a fundament of perception. Some examples are: Time is restricted to a twenty-four hour period, yet it is said that time waits for no man. God is the ultimate creator, although, He gave us the

ability to think, reason, and believe in ideas that spawn new creations. Nietzsche said that God is dead. He has been killed off by our ideas, restriction, and advancements. Our true faith rests in ourselves. We have killed God and named ourselves to be his worthy successors. Humans have the ability to explore space through the invention of spaceships. What we are raised to believe keeps us in these beliefs. Where we are from, what religion we believe in, and what is common in our culture backs these beliefs. Truth exists, but is relative and dependent upon individual factors: culture, experience, and knowledge. For instance, I have four children by an African man from Gambia. So, I speak to Africans on a daily basis. Some of them are still in Africa and some have made it to the United States. Most Africans still residing in Africa believe that the streets of America are paved with gold and it is one of the greatest places to live. The Africans I know who live in America all say, “If I had known it was this hard to survive in America, I would have stayed in Africa.” This leads me to believe that truth is relative. It is a game of perspective and perception Truth is relative. Opinion or “truth” is subject to many things that can alter it. Real truth is unchanging. Many times we lack the ability to see the truth clearly. The truth may present itself to us in a variety of ways. We see it when it becomes relevant to us. An old adage says love is blind. The same could be said about truth representative of the fact that Lady Justice stands with her double-edged sword unsheathed and the scales of truth tipped in time’s favor. At the same time her eyes are blindfolded against the injustice of belief, knowledge, and relativity.

Will we ever unite in our search for the truth? Or will we forever leave this boxed belief of relevance, time, and truth to stagnate within its own walls. Are we doomed to endlessly sit Time is the beholder of this truth and all humanity can do is patiently wait for the day of reckoning. Three main things came up time after time in my research on truth: belief, knowledge, and relativity.

One must be able to differentiate belief from knowledge and relativity from actuality. Therefore, time is the bearer of all relevant truth and only the universe knows what that truth may be.

Cellular Memory Release
By Gary Jacobsson

No matter how deep the challenges are that you meet in life, no matter what limitations you face, there is the possibility for you to permanently free and heal yourself. If you are seriously willing to take responsibility for everything that manifests and has manifested in your life, then you are capable of getting to the root causes and allow transformation and healing to take place at all levels.

Cellular Memory Release (CMR) is an effective, practical synthesis of tools for accessing and freeing the trapped, stagnant life force held inside the cells of your body. The crystallization of this life force within the cellular memory of your being is the root cause of most manifested life imbalances, be it physical, emotional, psychological or spiritual. There is a vast intelligence in you just waiting to set you free. It has the wisdom to heal, the knowledge to share, and the information to help show you how to live life at your maximum potential. There is an urging within all of us to know a permanent peace with whatever it is we face, but somehow we feel blocked from or unable to access what is truly our soul's birthright. Just as our potential is trying to come out, we seem to be shut down by unconscious strategies. These unconscious strategies are manifested in a way to match the energetic field of repressed fears, traumas and wounds that are stored within the

Cellular memory. We make decisions about ourselves and others and carry out behaviors that resonate with the energy field inside that we are experiencing in the moment. This dynamic only reinforces and strengthens the unconscious smokescreen that leaves us unaware of it as the cause of our afflictions and illnesses. We were never taught a healthy way to get in touch with our own unique truth and face our fears directly. Through carefully guided sessions in Cellular Memory Release lies the opportunity to transform our fears into peace allowing the process of healing to begin. As we unveil and release what is no longer serving us in the present moment, we open the door to newer, lighter and healthier possibilities of living. The vast intelligence within you never manifests what you cannot overcome, and it is longing to set you free.

"Humanity Healing Hour" is geared toward interviewing a wide array of interesting, diverse and highly knowledgeable souls who work in different arenas within the world of healing and spiritual or peaceful activism or advocacy throughout the globe. It is the purpose of this show to openly and honestly discuss, in depth, the myriad of modalities which they employ; their unique gifts they offer this world, their experiences and their graciousness to allow us to share their lives
