Zen Gardner talks about the manufactured Ebola crisis on Volcania Radio
Thousands of years ago, in the pre monarchic era, sacred plants and other entheogenic substances where politically correct and highly respected for their ability to bring forth the divine, Yahweh, God, The Great Spirit, etc., by the many cultures who used them. Often the entire tribe or community would partake in the entheogenic rites and rituals. These rites were often used in initiation into adulthood, for healing, to help guide the community in the decision process, and to bring the direct religious experience to anyone seeking it.
In the pre literate world, the knowledge of psychedelic sacraments, as well as fertility rites and astronomical knowledge surrounding the sun, stars, and zodiac, known as astrotheology, were anthropomorphized into a character or a deity; consequently, their stories and practices could easily be passed down for generations. Weather changes over millenniums caused environmental changes that altered the available foods and plant sacraments available in the local vicinity. If a tribe lost its shamanic El-der (El – God), all of the tribe’s knowledge of their plant sacraments as well as astronomical knowledge would be lost. The Church’s inquisitions extracted this sacred knowledge from the local Shamans who were then exterminated…It is time to recognize the fact that this Pharmacratic Inquisition is still intact and destroy it.
Randy and his son, Dawson, were fishing on a lake in British Columbia and noticed a bald eagle in the water, clearly in distress. Its wings were completely soaked and could not manage to fly itself out of the water.
The fisherman made a brave decision, risked their own safety, and brought the eagle on board to give it proper care and dry it off.

Police corruption is to be investigated by a powerful committee of MPs amid fears of widespread impropriety – as The Independent reveals that thousands of officers are suspected to be crooked.
The Home Affairs Select Committee will launch an inquiry next month into the police’s relationship with organised crime, focusing on the infiltration of forces by criminal networks. The inquiry, which will allow MPs to hear from witnesses under the protection of parliamentary privilege, follows a series of scandals including the inquiries relating to Stephen Lawrence, Daniel Morgan, phone-hacking and Plebgate.
It comes as The Independent can reveal for the first time the Government’s official estimate of how many members of police staff were suspected of being compromised by dealings with criminals.
An analysis of intelligence by Home Office researchers found between 0.5 and 1 per cent of the 200,000 police officers and civilian employees in England and Wales in 2003 were “potentially corrupt”, and involved in leaking information to criminals, stealing property during raids, fabricating evidence, helping villains to escape prosecution and “using their power to obtain money or sexual favours from the public”.

In a recent article, “In The Internet of Things YOU Will Be The Key,” I outlined the many ways that the human body will become the next-generation identification system. The move to give everyone a global unique ID that can be verified across all human activity has been in the works for some time and the applications are pervasive.
The fear of identity theft and cyber-banking crime has been the latest sales pitch to encourage accepting identity tech such as vein scanners , facial recognition, voiceprints , iris scans – even tears - as well as their attendant databases. There is an ongoing cooperative effort between global banks and corporations to ensure that there will be standardized, centralized entry into the consumer/Internet/banking matrix of the future.
Another data point to note in the evolution of biometric ID is that MasterCard is now partnering with a Norwegian company called Zwipe to introduce the first fully biometric credit card, which will dispense with a PIN and instead use a fingerprint sensor for verification.
The FBI director has slammed Apple and Google for offering their customers encryption technology that protects users’ privacy. “Deeply concerned” James Comey wants to push on Congress to “fix” laws to ensure police can still access private data.
“It’s the equivalent of a closet that can’t be opened. A safe that can’t be cracked,” Comey, speaking at the Brookings Institute in Washington DC, referred to the encryption technology calling the new service “a marketing pitch.”
“But it will have very serious consequences for law enforcement and national security agencies at all levels,” he warned.
Apple has recently presented its latest Mac OS X operating system for desktop and laptop computers, encouraging its customers to use FileVault disk encryption technology to keep their data secure. The tool would also prevent NSA or FBI from having access to phones and computers.

I’ve never been very politically minded. I’m not a conspiracy theorist. I’ve never been arrested and I don’t like to get in trouble. I do like, and always have, to think for myself. I’m a natural skeptic and pragmatist. These days, there are a couple of issues that are getting under my skin, and connecting the dots between them helps to establish a framework for a truth in science “sniff-test”. Be warned, you may find that many arenas in which you have come to believe that you were being protected by your authority figures and government, in fact, you’ve been led down a blind path, and will be left there to fend for yourself when it all goes down. That’s why I advocate for consumer empowerment and thoughtful decision-making about what we put in our bodies.
Humans suffer from hubris – we think we know better than nature, can fix it, manipulate it, and master it. There are (at least) two major transgressions that follow similar patterns, raise important red flags, and most certainly do not pass the sniff test: GMOs (genetically modified “foods”) and vaccination. Here’s what they have in common:
Bhang, the Holy Drink of Lord Shiva, is LEGALLY sold in India and its use is not restricted to the Sages and Holy Men (Sadhus) who have renounced the material world to maintain singular focus on Shiva, for everything is Shiva in the eyes of an initiated Shaivite. All bhakti (devotion) finally leads the bhakt (devotee) towards the realization of absolute oneness with the deity, whoever the deity might be. The use of Cannabis in the form of Bhang is deeply rooted in the Indian culture and has references in the Vedas as well. The Atharva Veda, estimated to have been written sometime around 2000 – 1400 BC, mentions Cannabis to be one of the five sacred plants and the guardian angel resides in its leaves.
In certain Vedic rituals, Cannabis stems were thrown into the ritual fire (yagna) to overcome enemies and evil forces. The Vedas also refer to it as a source of happiness, joy giver and liberator. One version says that, when the devas (gods) and demons churned the ocean, nectar (amrit) as well as poison (vish) emerged. No one wanted the poison, so Shiva drank it all up, which earned him the title ‘Neelkanth, the Blue Throated One’. As per one version, the poison remained in his throat as Parvati held his neck tight, not allowing the posion to go any further into his body. When a drop of Amrit fell on the ground, the Cannabis plant sprouted from it. This plant is believed to bestow supernatural powers to its user.

Slate has enthusiastically supported vaccinations and in particular, establishment talking points and narratives regarding them, as well as a particular focus on dismembering mainstream anti-vaccine views. In a recent article titled, “Endangering the Herd,” Slate argues that those refusing to receive vaccines should be penalized, and the act of refusing to be vaccinated be criminalized.
The article would claim:
Parents who don’t vaccinate their kids may have the most heartfelt reason in the world: fear for their own children’s safety. But the basis for that fear is simply unfounded, and their decisions are putting other kids directly at risk. The bottom line is that the government’s interest in protecting children from getting the measles should trump parents’ interest in making medical decisions for their kids
In an attempt to lend credibility to the article’s premise – particularly that fears of vaccinations are unfounded – it cites a fictional television show and repeated assurances from governments that there is no link between vaccines and otherwise unexplained conditions like autism.

A judge yesterday ordered the release of Beechwood abuse survivor and witness, Melanie Shaw, from Peterborough prison after a long awaited bail application was granted with stringent conditions attached. Melanie is set to face trial on October 28th on a charge of arson, after her neighbour’s shed burned down.
A rising tide of public outrage at Melanie’s imprisonment, widely believed to be unlawful due to the absence of evidence of her involvement in the alleged incident, may have influenced the judge’s decision, some believe.
Observers reported seeing a very frail and ill looking Melanie, who spoke briefly when called up. One commented: “The judge said it’s very unusual for somebody to be released so close to a trial. I think that was more or less a nod to public support that’s been so evident both in this court and the protest in Peterborough.”
The hearing was almost transferred to a private chamber at the last minute, but Judge Dickinson QC persisted with proceedings in a public court to the relief of supporters packed into the gallery.
Dog Poet Transmitting…….
May your noses always be cold and wet.
Last week I was struggling to find a way to explain something. As is most often the case, it’s usually something that happened or is happening to me and if it is something I perceive as useful, I pass it on. So… I was thinking, imagine the mind as an apartment with a lot of rooms, or a few rooms, depending on the personality and these walls are all on sliders and they can be pushed out and they merge with the walls they come up against so, theoretically, you can turn any mental apartment into a single room of variable dimensions. Imagine, as is the case with most people, this apartment is cluttered with artifacts and there are many shelves upon which are stored all manner of objects that made an imprint on the consciousness and so they remain there, resonating from the point of their relevance and time of impact.
Of course there are three floors to the apartment but one seldom has access to either the one above or below. The bottom floor is reached through dreams in sleep and sometimes in meditation. The upper floor is reached through states of exalted consciousness or via the engine of sacred comestibles and even in these cases, most often, only a certain level of the top floor is accessible. It should be noted that when people move out of the apartment (AND should they return, at a later date), they will not be coming back to the same apartment and when they vacate, they exit through the bottom floor OR the top floor. This is a critical piece of information but not something that most people pay any attention to, unfortunately.
I’ve often said the awakening is happening at a fantastic rate. This has been met with some skepticism, and understandably so, as evidence of this catalytic process can seem unapparent in the barrage of negative news and the absolute stupor most people are still in. Our outside world only appears to be more insane by the day while the reaction of earth’s inhabitants seems to be minimal, even regarding their own openly threatened freedoms and very survival.
But I affirm otherwise.
I’m simply presenting spiritual realities at work that are actually more evident by the day. It just takes the eyes of consciousness to see it fully – in fact, to feel it. We’re learning to rely on new awakening senses and this is a big part of the process. Allowing those vibrations to surface in our hearts and minds and listening to them is the next stage we’re encountering. And then to act on them.
That may seem a stretch to some, but actually we all do this every day. It just depends on our source of information. We take the input and mix it with our levels of understanding with a lot of emotional and past history usually mixed in. We weigh up where we think things are going, try to evaluate it, and then it becomes part of our worldview and in turn affects our actions.
This is exactly why getting to the place of detachment from old patterns and into a more full conscious awareness of the big picture, especially spiritually, is so very important. Otherwise we’re going to reinvent the matrix within and without us with a new look and coat of paint.
Fungi are incredible organisms that are vital to the earth’s ecosystems. They assist in the bioremediation of poisoned soils and oceans, and are also a source of food, and even building material for us humans. Some, like American mycologist and founder of Fungi Perfecti, Paul Stamets, have famously asserted that fungi will save the world — no off-hand statement, coming from a man who has spent his life studying and promoting fungi and the end of “fungi-phobia” worldwide.
Historically, a wide range of mushrooms have been used in medicine, and there may be one mushroom that might hold the key to the future of medicine. For years, Stamets has been on the look-out for the agarikon (Fomitopsis officinalis or Laricifomes officinalis, depending on the tree it grows on), a rare and endangered mushroom that grows only in old-growth conifer forests of North America and Europe.

Maya suffered with a severe form of eczema since she was a young baby. At the age of one, red, flaky skin broke out all over Maya’s body forcing her mother to resort to the conventional doctor-recommended treatment for eczema, steroid cream.
As supplemental advice, Maya’s pediatrician also recommended removing cow’s milk from her diet and replacing it with goat’s milk (about 15% of infants experience a dairy protein allergy, with common allergic symptoms manifesting on the skin). After doing so, Maya’s mother noticed that it had worked, but this only lasted for a short while.
It wasn’t long before Maya began to experience constant colds, a side effect Maya’s mother figured was due to the steroid cream. Steroid creams have a remarkable skin-penetrating ability which can flood the bloodstream and kill the cells which provide immunity against pathogens. Maya’s mother worried that the cream was only covering up the problem, rather than solving the root of the issue.
The largest haul of Viking treasure ever found in Britain has been unearthed by a metal detector enthusiast, it was revealed today.
The discovery was found on Church of Scotland land after the detectorist painstakingly searched the unidentified area in Dumfries and Galloway for more than a year.
The hoard, which consists of more than a hundred artefacts, many of which are historically unique, is now under the care of the Treasure Trove Unit and is regarded as being of significant international importance.
The hoard also includes a complete metal vessel containing more objects. It has not yet been emptied and the first step will be to examine its contents by X-ray.
Finder Derek McLennan, 47, was left speechless when he made the discovery in early September and was so emotional that when he called his wife she thought that he had been in a car accident.
Within the find is an early Christian solid silver cross, thought to date from the Ninth or Tenth centuries.

Dr. Masaru Emoto a renown scientist that had been visually documenting molecular changes in water by means of his photographic techniques, and in doing so, had expanded our concept of Consciousness has passed away this morning in Japan.
His beloved wife was with him.
Since he became ill in Shanghai, he has received so much love and gratitude from his dear friends of all over the world. He was very encouraged and happy to receive your kind messages with love.
His last word was “Arigato”. (“Thank you” in Japanese) We believe his last word was to you, everybody. He was so grateful for you and thanked you all so very much.
He used to say, “Life is LOVE which is a gift from God and parents, and DEATH is gratitude for going to a new dimension”. So now he is in another dimension and continues to look over us warmly with love and gratitude.

When You Have the Right Vibe, It’s Not a Coincidence: Synchronicities, Energy Healing, and Other Strangeness in the Field
The following is an excerpt from: Active Consciousness: Awakening the Power Within  R.L.Ranch Press, September 2011, http://www.activeconsciousness.com
One piece of evidence for the holographic nature of nonstandard fields that have been proposed in recent years — the zero-point field (a candidate for the unified field ), the psi field of psychic phenomena, Ervin Laszlo’s Akashic field , and the morphic field proposed by Rupert Sheldrake  — is that they all share a common feature: sensitivity to similarity in vibration.
If a holographic image has many different holograms embedded within it, shining a laser of a specific frequency upon it will cause only those holograms made with lasers of the same frequency to stand out. That’s because things with the same vibration naturally resonate and reinforce one another — just as two violin strings at the same pitch resonate with one another. This property of resonance has also been used to explain how each of us might interact with mysterious fields like the psi or Akashic fields … People pick up only that with which they personally “resonate.” Each individual’s resonant frequency, determined by their life experience, physical body, and energy body, limits what they can perceive.
Biologist Rupert Sheldrake’s theory of morphic resonance also depends upon similarity in vibration. Members of the same species, being “on the same wavelength,” are able to tap into information that pertains uniquely to them. And while members of an entire species might be able to tune into a fairly broad spectrum of frequencies (think of Carl Jung’s notion of the collective unconscious that humans supposedly tap into ), smaller, more tightly connected groups — such as members of the same family or loving couples — resonate in more focused zones of vibration; they have access to their own “private frequency.” In fact, Sheldrake goes even further and suggests that morphic fields can explain how human memory operates. Instead of being stored in our brains, he suggests that memories are stored in the morphic field. Our brains then pick them up via resonance, like radios tuning to their own private stations.
Bill Gates, Rockefeller and the GMO giants know something we don’t
This article was first published in December 2007.
One thing Microsoft founder Bill Gates can’t be accused of is sloth. He was already programming at 14, founded Microsoft at age 20 while still a student at Harvard. By 1995 he had been listed by Forbes as the world’s richest man from being the largest shareholder in his Microsoft, a company which his relentless drive built into a de facto monopoly in software systems for personal computers.
In 2006 when most people in such a situation might think of retiring to a quiet Pacific island, Bill Gates decided to devote his energies to his Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the world’s largest ‘transparent’ private foundation as it says, with a whopping $34.6 billion endowment and a legal necessity to spend $1.5 billion a year on charitable projects around the world to maintain its tax free charitable status. A gift from friend and business associate, mega-investor Warren Buffett in 2006, of some $30 billion worth of shares in Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway put the Gates’ foundation into the league where it spends almost the amount of the entire annual budget of the United Nations’ World Health Organization.
So when Bill Gates decides through the Gates Foundation to invest some $30 million of their hard earned money in a project, it is worth looking at.

Ironically, the lyrics in the song painted a very negative picture of marijuana users, and was told from the perspective of a pothead who had their life ruined “because they got high.”
The story was told of a stoner who forgot to clean their room, failed school, got arrested, forgot to pay child support, and a number of other disasters, all thanks to their use of the cannabis plant.
For the most part, the millions of people who loved this song knew that every word of it was a complete joke, and according to many sources, that is how Afroman intended it, because after all, he was high when he wrote it.
Now years later, Afroman is watching the world change in ways that he could have never expected when he released his smash hit in 2000. People everywhere are starting to learn that marijuana is not as harmful as they were led to believe, and actually has a number of beneficial uses.
To commemorate the changing times, Afroman released a “Positive Remix” for his classic track, where he speaks of cannabis as the cure for glaucoma, anxiety, and an alternative to harmful drugs and alcohol. In the remix, Afroman also calls attention to the black market violence that is caused by prohibition.
