protect your basic human rights & liberties

so, i began this blog with the intention to spread as much consciousness as possible by empowering individuals to harness their inner warriors- with an ethos on self mastery, nourishment and whole-istic healing, we vowed to follow what is the dharma of every awakened being walking the (5) path(s) of the bodhisattva…bringing light to the darkness that shrouds the visions of society closing in like a tunnel… blind in the peripherals….deaf to the truth…

through this mission i’ve shared much wisdom on ‘alternative’ healing, perspective & methodology unconventional to northamericancorporatizedanticuresandthebigpharmafueledbeaurocraticdestructionofourwellbeing, as well as much perspective on compassionately, mindfully, consciously and courageously striving against all obstacles – to reclaim what is rightfully ours, a thriving life.

this has become evermore difficult in the last year, particularly in these last 6-8 months or so; as i began a #WTFU call, and through a series called ‘the tentruths you need to know’ – began to really dig into the reality that is so programmed for suffering- posing ‘theories’ and sharing ‘opinions’ on what we so blatantly are meant to ignore. This series whilst meant as an act of compassion, an attempt to share awakening, began to feel a little like whistleblowing. Although the knowledge is out there, the information not new…

i’ve published 2 of the 10- which were met with much appreciation and gratitude from all whom stumbled upon them, with the remaining 8- sitting quietly, unobtrusively in various states of draft status- as the world around us ever so predictably began to tighten like a belt across our eyes, and with those whom have sobravelyunveiledinsideknowledge criminalized, demonized and cut down by those who wish to suppress… it is more challenging than ever to stand in the light.

that said, i’ve struggled with whether to publish any more of this series, however desperately it seems that its needed. and there is a new bill that affirms this general uncertainty- heading for passing.

i’ve been receiving updates from the avaaz network recently, with a petition to stop this from happening and i’d advise any who value their basic liberties to exercise a voice.

here are some excerpts from various media sources:

“They won’t be able to kill or harm us, or “violate our sexual integrity” — but the Prime Minister just introduced a new anti-terrorism act that could let CSIS do just about anything else. Unless we make this Big Brother bill politically untouchable.

And worse, Stephen Harper is using the fear of terrorism to give our spy agency crazy new powers like letting them get secret warrants to break into our houses, copy or take documents, and even install monitoring devices.

The Conservative and Liberal parties are planning to vote for the bill — and the only way to stop it is to show them that Canadians value freedom more than fear.

Under the cloud of fear produced by repeated hyperbole about the scope and nature of the threat, he now wants to turn our domestic spy agency into something that looks disturbingly like a secret police force.

Canadians should not be willing to accept such an obvious threat to their basic liberties. Our existing laws and our society are strong enough to stand up to the threat of terrorism without compromising our values.”

” Some legal experts questioned the constitutionality of its crucial measures,

while political opponents accused the prime minister of exploiting those killings in an election year.

The platform for this year’s election had been based on the country’s economic performance. But the collapse of oil prices has changed his approach.

The voting majority held by Mr. Harper and his Conservative Party in the House of Commons all but ensures that the bill will pass without amendment.

it was suggested, even before opposition leaders responded, that only the Conservatives would ensure national security. “We do not buy the argument,” he said, “that every time you protect Canadians you take away civil liberties.”

masses.

time to expand your vocabulary

a-z compendium of healthy, exalted, positive states of being.

* ACUTE FLUENCY. Happily immersed in artistic creation or scientific exploration; lost in a trance-like state of inventiveness that’s both blissful and taxing; surrendered to a state of grace in which you’re fully engaged in a productive, compelling, and delightful activity. The joy of this demanding, rewarding state is intensified by a sense that time has been suspended, and is rounder and deeper than usual. (Suggested by H. H. Holiday, who reports that extensive studies in this state have been done by Mihaly Cziscenmihaliy in his book, Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience.)

* AGGRESSIVE SENSITIVITY. Animated by a strong determination to be receptive and empathetic.

* ALIGNMENT WITH THE INFINITY OF THE MOMENT. Reveling in the liberating realization that we are all exactly where we need to be at all times, even if some of us are temporarily in the midst of trial or tribulation, and that human evolution is proceeding exactly as it should, even if we can’t see the big picture of the puzzle that would clarify how all the pieces fit together perfectly.

* COMPASSIONATE DISCRIMINATION. Having astute judgment without being scornfully judgmental; seeing difficult truths about a situation or person without closing your heart or feeling superior.

* INADVERTENT NATURE WORSHIP. Experiencing the rapture that comes from being outside for extended periods of time. (Suggested by Sue Carol Robinson.)

* INGENIOUS INTIMACY. Having an ability to consistently create deep connections with other human beings, and to use the lush, reverential excitement stimulated by such exchanges to further deepen the connections. A well-crafted talent for dissolving your sense of separateness and enjoying the innocent exultation that erupts in the wake of the dissolution. (Suggested by Sue Carol Robinson.)

ƒ*#$&*#wtf$$ – the MonsantoMafia suing Vermont for law to label GMOs in a continued battle of corporate vs. human – Nourished Warrior Wellness: EMPOWER

well it’s official, Corporations now have more rights than Humans do. ( maybe that’s been official for some time but this new kickinthepants against the campaign to label GMO’s is one toke over the line sweet jesus.

Just when i’d finished marching against them and was feeling a tiny smidge confident about the cresting-wave-collective action that is taking place across the globe, The Monsanto Mafia pulled out a (cancerridden,filthydirty) ace from its genetically modified ass – and is filing suit against the state of Vermont. The GMA ( grocery manufacturers association –  which reads like a who’s who of corporate criminality includes Monsanto, Dow, General Mills etc. )  filed suit in U.S. Court in the State of Vermont to pre-empt Vermont’s H.112 ( read it here ) a law requiring mandatory labeling of foods sold@ retail containing genetically modified organisms ( the law also prohibits food companies from labeling GMO foods as “natural” or “all natural.” )

The huge achievement for grassroots social justice that came to fruition on May 8th, with Vermont whilst defying threats of legal action, passed the US’s inaugural law requiring mandatory labeling of GMOS is now under threat by the World’s largest supplier of genetically modified organsims ( and the billion dollar backers- spending and threatening and lobbying endlessly – to keep you in the dark. )

Up until then Monsanto and the GMA had been successful in their attempts to block GMO labeling legislation in 30+ states.  Just to put some perspective to it ( for the peeps who need to see hard numbers attached to gauge impact ) The cost to run their anti-right-to-know, anti-life, lobbying and advertising barrage cost around $100 million from 2012 until 2014, ( otherwise known to them as pocket-change )  & according to several sources 12 of that $million went to laundered donations to I-522 ( The Washington State GMO labeling ballot initiative ) All of the filthy money that funds this ridiculous and at once, horrific corruption comes from the giants who compose the GMA. ( and very likely put food on your table daily )

So until now this stronghold’s been enforced as such, this cash-saturated battle against humanity has been waged and won across the country of America, now that Vermont has passed their law with Oregon following in November – the balance is shifting- but it needs to shift more. 60+ countries have banned GMO’s- is North America really so hog-tied and enslaved? Beyond the righttoknow, transparency and ethics issue of labeling, peeps really ought be concerned when a multi-billion dollar corporate lobbying group sues to overturn a state’s hard-won-right to govern for the health and safety of its people.
This is an important time we are now in, that will literally set precedence for the rest of the United States ( and inevitably the rest of the GMO-ridden world ) The GMA is currently also pushing a bill in congress that would pre-empt all states from passing GMO labeling laws; There are 25 other states currently holding bills with similar labeling laws and you can be pretty certain that many of them, especially the ones who are already one-foot-in- and- one foot out the door- with clauses in their bills that are contingent entirely on whether other states also pass the laws- will drop that shit like it’s hot.

Whilst i read that Vermont took extended pre cautions in putting the bill together that would protect them from this inevitable legal action, ensuring that if taken to court the bill would stand- stranger things have happened when there are corporate dollars and shareholders profit-margins involved. So whether this suit will stand and abolish the good that’s been done, or whether this is an intimidation tactic aimed at fucking with the heads of state holding yet-passed bills around the country, into fearsome retraction, all around  it would be wise to think if Vermont beats it- that the rest of the country ( and hopefully Canada ) will be on its way to making it mandate to label ( and eventually, prayerfully abolish ) GMO’s. Those at the helm of the GMO death machine really hate the idea of labeling as it forces them to not only take on the massively high
cost of reprinting what’s likely to be nearly all products in a line depending on the brand – expand that across hundreds if not thousands of brands and product lines. To get an idea of what this would cost from a packaging perspective alone, for one single SKU – say like a bag of frozen corn- redesign alone could be in the thousands if they employ an agency for their marketing needs.
Multiply that by the 300 corporations within the GMA and all their architectures and products. Not to mention the reality That they will be required to divulge all their dirty secret poisons now hidden in your food. Pick up any label at the grocery store and there is already cause enough for concern around the chemicals, carcinogens and heavily toxic shit that is already on display for all to see, I can only imagine what the unveiling might look like should it become a mandatory duty of corporations, now duping you with claims of all natural and deliberately doing harm via other ingredients.  So while this labeling law is not really a realist’s or idealists answer to the issues facing humanity and its food systems, it is a small step towards awakening, it’s a win for truth and it will effectively put the purchasing power into the hands of an informed consumer. 

I published this piece and returned hours later to add an important point I left out – the reality of most of middle class North America.
The economic status of the 99%
Is as such that labeled or not most cannot afford to eat clean- meaning consciously, organically, outside the failed food paradigm.Despite having the most billionaires per capital, the US is a country where poverty levels are ever rising and the luxury of being mindful of what is in the food, becomes secondary to actually having food on the table. Families: in more debt than ever and tethered by so much that even if you flat out told an average american they were feeding their family genetically modified meals they might very well be inclined to say fck it for fear of not making the mortgage otherwise. an orchestrated reality and vicious cycle with no forseeable overnight remedy.
as a counterpoint to the campaign to label – i pose the question would an average blue collared american living paycheque to paycheque be better or worse in the short term, for having the knowledge that their food was genetically modified shit?
would it be just another burden atop already weighted shoulders?
would it cause an onslaught of lawsuits of its own once peeps discover the health impact of GMOS?
would it overwhelm the already flailing healthcare system?
Deliver an influx of revenue to big pharma by way of peeps, who barely now holding by a thread – to meltdown and in turn become part of the Prozac-Ed masses?
or would it be a welcome veritas, opening eyes and challenging us all to do better? to fight harder? to re-direct billions from a poisonous food system and see revolutions and evolutions in how humanity eats?
will people wisen and rise up to reclaim their rights to live well?
Questions I can’t answer, however feel the need to ask. This issue of labeling GMOS is really such a small piece of such a monstrous puzzle with pieces constantly morphing in size…
My vote is always for truth.
For awareness.
For freedom and justice and the right to information that is intrinsically already theirs-in a system based on buying..
But it serves to be said without education around all of what we face, without understanding of the magnitude of the scheme,
Without proactive, conscious choices we are complicit in our ultimate destruction.

While this crazy battle for control over what goes knowingly into your body is all taking place under the bane of the great land of the free- it effects the entire world –  your Right-to-Know is a legal principle,  your health & wellbeing, the future of your children, grandchildren, the food chain as a whole- all vital to protect. So while a lawsuit which doesn’t receive much mainstream media attention may not seem like something incredibly important to put your energy, intention and support behind- this is so much bigger, it’s about people vs. profits, corporate vs. human, your life.  = weighty stakes.

In other words, these battles between multi-billion corporations versus consumer health and rights belong to all of us.

the real solution for a life-sustaining, functional food system  goes beyond the obvious act of corporations implementing a cradle-to-cradle ethos in their product lifecycles… to actually shifting the fundamentals upon which our beliefs are built. To retrace the steps of the ancients, our distant ancestors, people in far off countries with no clue what a GMO is or why it would be in their food- and make a return to living from the land, in harmony with it vs. in a mode of constant violent rape and destruction, learning how to sustainably utilize natural resources and rebuild the ecosystems and environments destroyed over hundreds of years of useless industrialization and excess that some call progress, honouring the earth for what it provides- which at heart, is every single thing we need to thrive.

i will as a prologue offer ideas and resources for this. in the meantime- please use the power you do have, use what you have in your arsenal to ensure a better life for future generations, make the small steps that are large in impact and importantly- learn the practice of forgiveness and compassion, for all people. This is the only true freedom we have in this life.

In all of this, you have the power to shift the balance. Here is how to get empowered:

activism, education, avoidance, 

quick ways to add your voice:

blog, reblog, share, tweet, fb, whatever social media suits your fancy- about these issues. Share the infographics and the lists and the reasons why. Speak the fuck up, tell whomever will listen- The more peeps get in the faces of big corporate, the more they will begin to actually see us, recognize the humanity that they are striving to destroy. Use social media as the incredible force that it is to make positive change- its being done all over the world. Every brand has a facebook page, a twitter account, write on their timelines, tweet @them and ask them tough questions, ask them to stop the destruction. It may be like talking to a wall – however every brand has a brand image to protect that is massively valuable to them and with the transparency that social media forces- there is nowhere to hide, they cant choose to just ‘leave you off the labels’ that are their pages. You can effect change.

The Organic Consumers Association rallied 500k to help Oregon pass their GMO labeling initiative, and are currently vying to raise for Vermont as well as intensifying their efforts of grassroots lobbying and marketplace pressure to defeat Big Business in the eyes of public opinion.

For years i worked to empower ethical business through promoting the positive purchase, instigating you into harnessing your collective consumer buying power – precisely what i would advocate now, it’s the most powerful weapon in your arsenal.

Boycotting the brands:

of the Parent companies /any brands part of the Monsanto Mafia  ) is a feat not always easy, nor without complexity as every day it seems an organic brand is gobbled up by big business- keep that in mind while either printing out these infographics or saving them on your smartphone

for a list of the ‘terrible twenty’ members of the GMA- visit: http://www.theboycottlist.org/

NO-monsanto

Choosing to buy from small businesses and independent and organic brands. Organic doesn’t always mean organic, nor does it mean GMO free, nor does it mean independently owned, sustainably produced, ethical or without an evil parent puppeteering its supposed healthy strings- However you look at it, Big Business is lurking in your cereal. Weed him out.

which corporations own your organic brands?

 

most sugar substitutes are chemical cocktails + GMO’s, Monsanto invented the cancer-causing saccaharin back in the day, which has now evolved into so many other names- all as sweetly evil:

lastly, if you need a refresher on the deeds that define Monsanto:

monsanto's crimes against humanity- a dirty dozen

march against monsanto Toronto 2014 – Nourished Warrior EMPOWER

It began on a long awaited- summery- late May morning, insomniac the night before, filled with endless thoughtloops spinning round my consciousness left over from the previous evenings refresher on the top evil deeds perpetrated by what was voted by Natural News readers as 2013’s ‘ most evil corporation ‘ of the yearthe one, the only, the notorious, the vile and villainous Monsanto. It was a gorgeous day in Queens Park and slowly the gathering of Activists, Concerned Parents, Conscious People and Political groups began to grow.

The peeps behind the day: Millions Against Monsanto the Organic Consumers Association, plus Toronto Non-GMO coalition (a group of organizations from the Toronto area who are working together to increase awareness and effect positive change around GMO issues. ) and The Kids Right To Know. With a Facebook event confirming the attendance of at least 1500, not to mention those of us who refuse to use social media channels – the hope was to reach numbers in the several thousands, people trickled in bit by bit as the little hand crept past the 11, a seeming disorganized mob of protestors began to rally into  a semblance of order as those of us bearing signs were beckoned to the front for photos.

There were some fantastic pieces of work, a few of my favourites ” im so angry i made a sign ” although sarcastic and a bit of a joke, nurture nature, give bees a chance, the angry corn, the bee in a gas mask, we are not your science  experiment, and the 5 armed mutant octopus ( insert obvious symbolism here ) with far-reaching tentacles each grasping one of the evils Monsanto stands for that my Brother had artfully crafted the night before and affixed mcgyver-like to a tennis racket, which quickly became a celebrity with endless photo-requests and paparazzi-esque attention that lasted all day… my choice to go straightup and simple was expressed with an acronym: G-ive M-e O-rganic, i happily affixed a rope to it and slung it around myback.

me@march                                                                                                                                                

One of the highlights of the morning was a most inspiring 16 year old ( and a Friend of my Friend’s Daughter ) – Rachel Parent, who founded at the tender age of 12 ” The Kids Right To Know, & “GMO Just Label It! Campaign”  helping to create mass awareness about the risks of GMOs and pushing for mandatory labeling)  This is the type of teenager that gives me hope for the future of humanity. In a world where the average person hasn’t a clue who Monsanto even is- and would rather watch American Idol than educate themselves on what harm they are doing on the daily, the notion that there are youth who aren’t prey to device disconnect and instead harness this world of mass connection to campaign for unity on the shit that really matters, fills me with appreciation and trust that the future generations may not be entirely lost. With brave and educated young leaders to rally their peers, we have a chance at uniting to save this world from the clutches of all that which we march in protest against. A brief speech on the importance of labelling GMO’s and banning neo-nics gave way to a slew of gratitude, cheers and drum beats as we began our anti-gmo journey.

The crown jewel of the march was a large black coffin filled to the brim with one million dead bees, lost over just a few short months. The death of the bees is a result of the Canadian Government’s ignorant allowance of the use of agricultural neonicotinoid pesticides, ( which harms not only bees but butterflies and birds as well ) primarily used to coat GMO corn and Soy, yet once airborne can traverse its toxicity far and wide…  As we began our march in requiem for the bees we made a quick stop at the parliament building at Queens Park, staging a funeral for today’s casualties of neonicotinoids- one million dead bees, brought to their funeral by Ontario Beekeepers, pallbearers in full beekeeping garb solemnly led the service in honour of the one million lost over a short winter season, followed by a speech aimed at educating masses on the dangers of neonicotinoids and their continued use in our food supply.

 1922288_10151998664087245_8089749291607626645_nBee-Wise:

One in every three bites of food you eat, is made possible by the efforts of our bees. A requiem for so many lost inspires a great deal of fear, and as well it should as many, government included, continue to support mega-corps like Monsanto, and their efforts to corrupt and destroy our food chain from every perceivable angle. And you’ve gotta give ’em credit really, evil ninjalike villains they are- populous isn’t consuming poisons quickly enough to meet their motive, and with so many awakening- what is the most effective next step to take? Whomever had the ah-ha moment, must have let forth a great villainous cackle as they set plans in motion to unleash the swift mass-murder of the very thing that renders our food supply edible.

just to be clear- Colony Collapse Disorder is serious threat to all of us. It is estimated that nearly a third of honeybees worldwide have already been wiped out. Without these bee colonies, pollination crucial for harvest does not happen. At the very least lower crop yields mean higher prices, and eventually all access to produce will diminish entirely.  That’s of course assuming we are referring to organic crops, because GMO crops are engineered to ‘self-pollinate’ – meaning they have no use for nature or for bees, and what happens when an evil giant has no use for something? it gets wiped out. ( the intention here is to gain a total domination strong-hold over the entire world’s food supply, effectively meaning everyone, everywhere has no choice but to consume their genetically engineered and patented seeds )

so WTF does Monsanto care about Bees?

Monsanto, is well aware that pollinators throw a proverbial wrench into their monopoly, ie: Bees allow for crops outside of their total control agenda. Therefore the more GMO’s planted, the more toxic chemicals like Neo-nics used, the more bees will die as they attempt to pollinate. This is a sad reality that has been happening since the introduction of GMO’s into the food supply.
Hilariously, to counter the notion that they are responsible for this mass genocide of bees, Monsanto stealthy decides to buy out a company called Beeologics, the largest bee research firm, previously dedicated to studying the colony collapse phenomenon and whose extensive research named Monsanto as the primary suspect. Shortly after they held a summit with beekeepers which outlined research findings asserting that instead of Beelogic’s previously confirmed GMO crops and deadly insecticides responsibility for bee decimation- the real culprit is actually a small insect called the ‘varroa mite.’ ( a germ that sparks bee viruses)
Beeologics has had a cozy relationship with the USDA, convenient for Monsanto as it will no doubt exploit Beeologics’ ‘biological tools’ in the development of more GMOs, crop chemicals and god knows what else, under the pretense of championing sustainability and progress- all the while obliterating the bee population, the natural environment, organic food and inevitably- humanity itself.

march2014hey, ho, GMOs have got to go, Hey ho, go fuck yourself Monsanto”– whatever chant you were singing that day- you can be certain is was a mantra of shared essence, to make ourselves heard through the streets of Toronto, as typical drivers slowed to look at us slant eyed, some honked in approval and others scowled in inconvenience, ignorant to the notion that we marched for them, their children, their future generations. As we made our way to the beat of a rhythmic tribal drum, the experience became something more than simple protest, chant and assembly of activism- it transcended immediate action into something of a ritualistic, tribal ceremony. Signs waving, mantras repeated like so much japa prayer, and we marched, and we danced and we laughed our way through Toronto’s busiest intersections- immune to the passers-by with put-upon looks, empowering the observers who emanated prideful looks.

Throughout the duration of the 60 minutes or so we marched, chanted and made clear our message to the big blue skies,  i remained continuously astounded by one thought- that fellow activists, advocates and concerned, conscious citizens ‘on five continents, 52 nations and at least 400 cities- round the globe were joined with us, in shared intention. And despite the fact that mainstream media coverage was minimal if not, non-existent, despite the fact that we were lobbying against a super-giant villain with the deepest pockets on the planet, despite the fact that every day it becomes more and more of a foraging hunt and gather to find untainted food options, despite the fact that we were effectively on mute to many of the programmed masses, on this day, across the world we were gathered in shared purpose, setting a collective intention, cultivating a massive wave of collaborative energy that despite all those despites – was shifting something… it was electric in the air and beyond any shadow of doubt- i felt this shifting that brought peace to my troubled mind full of protest for all the evil that i stood against, full of anger for so much death and mass destruction, a shift that only an allegiance of awakened souls could bring about.

Even if that’s just my own singular perspective in an infinite sea of subjective views,  the truth is so much bigger than that- we’d created a global wave of love, and a message of momentum against tolerance– for the oppression, the destruction, the corruption, the degradation, the monopolization… that the genetic engineering of our world is impossible- as long as we sustain this shared intention. Continue to generate this potent and powerful energy of positivity, of progression, of revolution- real change starts with one step. And that day we made many steps, marching for the future of our world.

A monster so much bigger than our organic farmers and our small businesses, our fair trade foods and mom and pop shops- our untainted fields and our legal rights- we may be small. But the magnitude of the monster is dwarfed by the size of our hearts. The capacity of our hope and the energy of our collective voice for change.

the reality remains, unless drastic action is taken to stop Monsanto in its continued quest to dominate global agriculture, the food supply as we know it will continue to destruct, organic farms will disappear one by one. Clean food and safe futures will diminish. This is why we march. This is why the somewhat annoying chant ‘hey-ho G M O’s have got to go, ‘ rolled ’round in my head for days to follow that march, this is why i cannot sleep at night, this is why i petition you to use your voice. to make change within yourself. to educate, to awaken, to share the message as far and wide as you can. The mass media outlets who did not cover our march have vested interests, they cannot broadcast the truth, nor spread the information that is so vitally needed to preserve the future of our planet and ourselves. It’s grassroots efforts, grassroots media, grassroots business that must rise up in collective effort to take back what is rightfully ours.

for those who are unfamiliar, or need a refresher- here is an infographic detailing the dirty dozen- perpetrated upon the world by Monsanto. Please share, PIN, instagram, tweet, print, post and promote the awakening as far and as wide as you can. You don’t have to march nor be an activist, you dont have to give anything up- aside from any mis-guided beliefs that turning up the covers will make the monster stay in the closet. please use your social media prowess to make change.

Nourished Warrior Wellness: EMPOWER: 10 truths that you need to know – WTFU vol. 2~ TETHERtruth

warriorwelnneswtfuWTFU aint what the fuck, but wake the fuck – up. it’s a harsh acronym perhaps, but the intention behind it is relative to the importance of the call to action.

…in case you missed my intro, here’s a precised recap:

there’s alot of misinformation, disinformation and saturation of useless information in the world we live in. My purpose with the #WTFU series is to unveil that which is unseen, hidden, spoken only under the breath, ignored or straight up accepted – from toxins to control- pulling back the proverbial curtain that keeps the masses asleep.

2012 and the massive energy shift therein saw a quickening that empowered so many more people to begin the awakening process, so much truth unveiled ( and often times quickly veiled over again by mainstream media or discredited by those whom want to keep the masses under their programmed spell. The reality however is that humans, blessed, wonderful, amazing creatures that we are- are meant to evolve. Our destiny is mapped out in the cosmos before we are born and henceforth long after we leave this earthly incarnation ) We certainly aren’t meant to live superficial lives in fearsome apprehension to dive into the deep end of our consciousness… resting in oblivion on material gains, striving for empty existence shrouded by shit that makes no difference.
You can strive for money and you can buy yourself a temporary belief that standing on your stacks will get you higher up any ladder to the top, but those who follow a conscious path of course know that ascension can’t be charged on no platinum visa.

in reality there are thousands of tiny truths that bring happy daily a-ha moments, and there are massive truths that are often indigestible given what we are, in essence, ‘programmed’ to believe. The point in short is, that this life in this time, is a miraculous, exciting and powerful opportunity… There are more of us than ever before- answering the call to WTFU and making it their dharma to assist others in the journey to awaken.

And to all of you, you know who you are- bless your journey. Please continue. To new discoverers on the path to understanding, Please remember the importance of balance in the quest to consciousness- its power is invaluable to you as you wake up out of complacency for opening the eyes for the first time can be blinding without the shade of balance. Balance is the secret of universal harmony. balance is key. This may be an obvious statement- especially relevant in modern life where its a struggle to survive and pull in the revenue you need to cover your nut- no matter how big or small your nuts are, balance is the only thing that will provide depth and meaning, enrich a life spent working.
At the centre of every system of order, every measure of success in relationships, everything in the natural world requires a centrepoint built on fortitude and wise and economical distribution. Ying, Yang, Creation, Destruction, Light, Dark, Hot + Cold = warm… and all life thrives in warmth- from bacteria to humanity- humans thrive when they meet warmth… allow it to flourish in their lives. The concept of balance can apply to personal life vs. work in the world, to finding your core on the yoga mat and mastering that arm balance, to learning the lesson of moderation when indulging in the deliciousness of life. Food, Substances, Technology, Sex…Too much makes you sick, too little and you starve. It’s that point where you meet a sense of satisfaction where your awareness ought spark pause on consumption. this particular lesson of balance applies to those on the conscious path …for in knowing how much truth you can handle, when seeking out what’s behind and underneath the surface-finding balance is vital.

And all said thus far- your best bet is to get educated in the art of avoidance. And further to that- grant yourself the gift of keen sight as not to miss the opportunities appearing every day…

” The opportunity to secure ourselves against defeat lies in our own hands, but the opportunity of defeating the enemy is provided by the enemy himself. “
Sun Tzu- The Art of War

‘Enemy’- i choose that word carefully and for emphasis – knowing that the truth is – often our only real enemies are ourselves as we are by nature, equipped with the capacity to be unconditionally victorious against any enemy… ) Every day the ‘enemy’ reveals itself to those who open their eyes to see the revealing. Those who are at a certain point in their awakening will realize that once you’ve cracked open the box to allow the light to flood in- the dark is illuminated, thus the enemy – has no place to hide.

Part two in our ten truths series starts here:

#2 tetherTRUTH:

teth•er ~ the utmost length to which one can go in action; the utmost extent or limit of ability or resources.


staff

#2- #TETHERtruth: we are willingly yet unwittingly, being controlled.

The distorted version of reality that we are living in is a programmed falsity that is oppressing us often without our direct knowledge.

preface:

This truth is one that is a bit slippery- i have never been the kind of writer who edits themselves or whom even thinks of what to say before the words come out- every thing i write is almost always a stream of consciousness seeming channeled from elsewhere- this however will need to be the exception. I will be avoiding use of particular words, names and terms particularly throughout the paragraphs on media and mind control for protection of what it is i am seeking to do with this blog at an overall.

Having said that- i will offer the basis for this tethering truth- i make no proclamations one way or another, no devotion to any particular path and certainly no advocacy for any anti- anything.. I am a believer in truth art and love as a means to my own end, that end- is always peace… so i put it to you as a human of this earth to dig and to seek to find your own path to this truth.

I will not speak directly, nor will i divulge any name, label or entity responsible for this mass vy for control- but off the top- just know, it is a deeply intricate matrix of interconnected efforts to repress what you, me, we… already know; to confuse and divert you from what is encoded in your DNA as a human. What we have been put on this earth to do, is in part – to reignite the wisdom within, to power forth through endless obstacles, and in this battle for our lives we need armor, we need an arsenal, the greatest weapon that an individual can have- is a conscious understanding of its opponent in the ever-changing war for one’s freedom.
I bow – in lakesh to the others who are out there sharing this wisdom and empowerment, striving to unleash humanity from the grips of toxic truths and repressive wills of ‘others’ whom come not from a place of light and love but from a darkness with calculated aim.

Prior to deep diving into this particular truth it serves to be said that there are infact countless ways by which we are controlled, influenced and dominated and tethered on a daily basis, from our food to our news to our health- it’s an interconnected web of motive, a massive onion that once peeled will continue to reveal itself layer upon layer. Control is such a widespread phenomenon that it literally can be traced to nearly every aspect of human life. Of course this is nothing new, control itself is a force of power that has been sought after since the dawn of humanity and its evolution has only seen it proliferate further and further – like urban sprawl into the far reaching edges of the landscape of our lives. Safe to say that what ought be obvious in terms of control has been obviously omitted from this installment of #WTFU– those certain truths that are engrained into us; such as the reality that religion and government seek to control us through systems of belief, they do so quite effectively taxing us at almost every level of life from economic to spiritual. The culture we live in, in the western world is one cultivated upon desire and greed- power hungry, money hungry and just plain hungry hoardes make up our city-scapes, and for the most part we exist in manifested boxes with small portions of liberty over our lives. We exist in many cases primarily to fuel the agendas of the elite and those who we unwittingly give our power to regularly. We hand over freedom as simply as if it were a paid transaction – which in many ways- it is. The economy of the western world has been built around the concept of currencies-Monetary, Belief and Power currencies- and most, spend the entirety of their lives toiling just to amass a substantial amount of any of those three.

Within that never-ending toil to acquire currency you never really own nor control- that is the reality of control…My belief has always been that in this life the only things we do control are our actions and our reactions- and as such i believe that whomever is behind the neverending vy to control you is also keenly aware of this and as such, they cultivate ways in which to remotely access both action and reaction- whether it’s through manipulation of perception and cultivation of false belief… aka: the influencing one’s emotions to motivate one to a motive. The programming itself is to inspire reaction and consequent action…The only liberties you truly own. The truth is the choice is yours, to educate yourself in the art of avoidance, to open your eyes to what’s true, to act with kindness over anger, to work to manifest the qualities within that will protect you from becoming a slave to your own (re)actions.

connecting TOXINtruth with TETHERtruth:

WTFU vol.1 #toxintruth made clear the harsh reality of our systematic poisoning through air, water, food, people and pretty much everything around us- and while i offered a list of the top toxic offenders – the real truth is that list keeps growing moment to moment. While the 10 truths are stand-alone realities, they, much like all else in existence are inextricably connected… The toxins that suppress us are tools – tools to meet agendas- both economical otherwise, all nevertheless dominating… To illustrate this connection- take Fluoride. The very first mention in my array of top toxins was Fluoride, Its presence as a poison does not necessarily upstage its presence as a control mechanism. Indeed, Fluoride is a blinding control mechanism;
one of the most viable and easily executable forms of control alive today- aside from imprisonment. ( although it could be argued most definitely as a prison in its own right )
Since WW2 when the leader of the Third Reich hatched a dastardly plan to seize dominance on a massive level- Fluoride has been a key tool.

The following is an excerpt from a letter received by the Lee Foundation for Nutritional Research from Mr. Charles Perkins, a chemist: ( 1. )

” … In the 1930`s, Hitler and the German Nazi`s envisioned a world to be dominated and controlled by a Nazi philosophy of pan-Germanism. The German chemists worked out a very ingenious and far-reaching plan of mass-control which was submitted to and adopted by the German General Staff. This plan was to control the population in any given area through mass medication of drinking water supplies. By this method they could control the population in whole areas, reduce population by water medication that would produce sterility in women, and so on. In this scheme of mass-control, sodium fluoride occupied a prominent place. …

Repeated doses of infinitesimal amounts of fluoride will in time reduce an individual`s power to resist domination, by slowly poisoning and narcotizing a certain area of the brain, thus making him submissive to the will of those who wish to govern him.

The real reason behind water fluoridation is not to benefit children`s teeth. If this were the real reason there are many ways in which it could be done that are much easier, cheaper, and far more effective. The real purpose behind water fluoridation is to reduce the resistance of the masses to domination and control and loss of liberty.

I was told of this entire scheme by a German chemist who was an official of the great IG Farben chemical industries and was also prominent in the Nazi movement at the time. I say this with all the earnestness and sincerity of a scientist who has spent nearly 20 years` research into the chemistry, biochemistry, physiology and pathology of fluorine–any person who drinks artificially fluorinated water for a period of one year or more will never again be the same person mentally or physically.”

1. Charles Perkins – excerpt from a letter received by the Lee Foundation for Nutritional Research, ( Milwaukee Wisconsin, October 2, 1954 )

Now some may look at the above and think- that sounds like the mad ramblings of a chemist who may have ingested too many fumes from his beaker. It’s incredibly difficult to believe that in the year 2014, In the great western world whom prides itself continent-wide on liberty, justice and remaining strong and free- that we could be subject to the plots of a dictator set in motion decades ago… And indeed it is a fearsome and tough to swallow truth- But if you look at the evidence posed in toxintruth – and the horrific affects that result from fluoridization of our human bodies, this 70 year old missive- begins to have a strange resonance of accuracy.

There are other accounts of this ‘mass medication’ plan throughout history that well-prove its truth. Here is another brief excerpt from Einstein`s nephew, Dr. E.H. Bronner (a chemist who had also been a prisoner of war during WWII) ( 2. )

“There is a sinister network of subversive agents, Godless ‘intellectual’ parasites, working in our country today whose ramifications grow more extensive, more successful and more alarming each new year and whose true objective is to demoralize, paralyze and destroy our great Republic–from within if they can, according to their plan–for their own possession.

Fluoridation of our community water systems can well become their most subtle weapon for our sure physical and mental deterioration…As a research chemist of established standing, I built within the past 22 years, 3 American chemical plants and licensed 6 of my 53 patents. Based on my years of practical experience in the health-food and chemical field, let me warn: fluoridation of drinking water is criminal insanity, sure national suicide. Even in small quantities, sodium fluoride is a deadly poison to which no effective antidote has been found. Non-organic sodium fluoride used in fluoridating water is instant poison to the body and fully water soluble.The body refuses to assimilate it.”

2. Dr. E.H. Bronner – letter printed in the Catholic Mirror ( Springfield, MA January 1952 )

Is there really more to say on the subject? Do you really still believe that fluoride is ‘good for the health’ because it’s recommended by Dentists? Or for that matter, the millions who consume it in the form of ‘Prozac’ – do you truly feel that your free will is a fair exchange for a dulled and numbed state of reality – where you may or may not feel ‘less- depressed’ that before? The choice we are making really, is between liberty and oppression. It may seem a drastic statement at first glance, but realistically- given the evidence there is no grey area, it’s a black and white debate.

A chemical that quite effectively shuts of our pineal gland- our ability to awaken and clearly see the truth, that causes crippling painful death in many of its victims, leaving others docile and ready for domination is quite simply not one you want in your body. period.
please click below to watch a fellow bringer of truth speaking in detail on the pineal gland and sacred geometry among other important revelations including ‘looking glass’ symbolism, syrians and other key truths of which i will not tag herein…

. In vol#1 I offered tips for de-fluoridizing the pineal gland and removing this toxin from the body- which in the warrior’s fight to be free, is elemental. it begins of course with the cleansing yes , but moreso knowing what it is that we need to cleanse, what we seek release from, the understanding that we are even tethered in the first place must be challenged and in that challenge- we reveal the endless ways by which this concept expresses itself…reclaiming control begins with the understanding of that which binds and tethers us to a fast-declining state of freedom to thrive. There are a vast array of tools by which we are tethered- from big ideas to seeming small beliefs, from drugs to music to the morning news, it’s the ultimate understanding of perceptions and triggers that will unleash us from the grasp.

#mechanics of mindcontrol: media parasites, MAOI, SSRI, and the robbery of liberty

via Wikipedia: Mind control (also known as brainwashing, coercive persuasion, thought control, or thought reform) is an indoctrination process which results in “an impairment of autonomy, an inability to think independently, and a disruption of beliefs and affiliations. In this context, brainwashing refers to the involuntary reeducation of basic beliefs and values” The term has been applied to any tactic, psychological or otherwise, which can be seen as subverting an individual’s sense of control over their own thinking, behavior, emotions or decision making.

The mechanics of mind control are so precise, so stealth, so smartly-engineered it’s barely possible to notice unless your eyes are open…The orchestrated strategic systems of control are run so deep and so wide there have been novels written on the topic ( read the rise of the fourth reich by Jim Marrs —>

– the orchestration of subliminal domination is happening everywhere you look, in every song you dance to, in every ‘Idol’ episode you watch, in every hour you spend fucking around on your smartphone, in every app you purchase in every page of every glossy-marketing-driven magazine lining the checkouts of every shopper marketing strategy implemented in every grocery store continent wide. To most the list i just wrote ( apps, idol, smartphones, pop music, consumerism… ) represents important elements of a culture that defines their lives… but that culture is cultivated to control…

Imagine if you will you are laying in a field on a summer’s day… looking down you notice an ant climbing a blade of grass and falling down over and over, only to climb back up again… Is there a purpose to this act? you wonder, is there rhyme or reason to this repetitive action?… is there meaningful explanation to why the ant is doing this- or is the action a fluke?… indeed it is a fluke- a lancet fluke. A lancet fluke is a parasite that resides in the stomachs of cows and sheep and in the brains of ants.

The belief that parasites rule the world has long been a notion held in veracity – and as such i use this notion to begin to draw a metaphor- the lancet fluke is a microscopic parasite that throughout its lifecycle requires different hosts in order to fulfill its destiny- it passes from snail to ant to cow rather effortlessly by invading the body of its host, and ultimately commandeering its mind in order to fulfill its ultimate dharma. Once the lancet fluke has infiltrated the ant, it infects the brain of the ant- and morphs its regular patterns of behaviour in such a way that it literally begins to control its mind. Instead of seeking comfort in the ant hole with the other ants, the lancet-inflected ant goes rogue and traverses its way up a tall blade of grass and therein waits patiently to be eaten by a cow. It climbs the blade of grass over and over and over until it succeeds in staying on top- where it is successfully able to kamakazee itself into the ultimate destination- the belly of a cow or sheep. The lancet fluke isn’t the topic of interest here but what the lancet represents is the seeming meaningless, mindless repetitive action of a living thing; once that organism has been ‘infected’ by something else.

This infection applies to ‘tether-truth’ – as it is a perfect representation of what happens to people once they have been infected or infiltrated or compelled by an idea. The idea itself thus becomes similar to a parasite. This concept itself however being expressed as microscopic + parasite sized- is in reality, quite vast. From the seed of an idea fluorishes transformation. It ought to be noted though- that this concept of ‘infection’ is not something that i mean to articulate as solely negative. We have all experienced at one time or another the capacity a seeming foreign entity or idea has to transform, whether it’s the big political statements such as that of Malcom X or the dogmatic expressions written in the holy bible which are followed by millions world-wide, Whether it is a simple mantra or affirmation spoken each morning in the mirror that leads to manifesting an intention, or the clean-toxin free diet that cleanses the body and thus transforms its host… Indeed the metaphor can be traced back to life itself- the notion of conception: the meeting of a man’s sperm with that of its counterpoint egg, the infiltration of the womb by a foreign body results in a miraculous metamorphosis, giving birth to new life… Not all transformation by that of idea or belief or infectious substance leads to ultimate demise. In truth it is this very notion- that drives me to create this series, that compels my hands to type the words, that pushes me to hit publish… the notion that the seed of a truth-based perception has the capacity to infect and to grow and to flourish into something that transforms life for the better is the ultimate rationale for the existence of these words you are reading; and it is the truth behind much of what we consume, what we watch, what we read, what we buy and what soundtracks our days as we move through our lives like ants marching to ultimate fate.

The lancet fluke concept, has many expressions- as many as there are people on earth. And my goal in this volume of #WTFU is to reveal the true nature of some.

Tethering Tools and Triggers:

SSRI’s, SNRI’s. MAOI’s, TCA’s,

WTFUfromSSRIS

When i was about 15 years old, just a few years after my first awakening experience- i read a book called ‘Brave New World’ – a classic by all rights, this Aldous Huxley Dystopian Novel takes place 600 years into the future wherein all the world is unified under a ‘One World Government’ A totalitarian society that is achieved via test tube babies, hypnotism, and psychological programming… which inevitably results in a rigid, pre-ordained caste system; intelligent humans in the highest positions and slave-like beings who are genetically programmed to do menial subordinate labour; wherein everyone belongs to everyone else in a system of forced-promiscuity that is literally brainwashed into people at birth. This world divided into alphas, betas, gammas, deltas and epsilons- exists entirely in a drug-induced, brainwashed state of false-happiness- by a drug called Soma.

When i was just a teenager reading this book was a thrilling and entirely fascinating fictional experience. I borrowed the book from the public library in the small town in which i lived – and i kept it for well over its due date, for anyone that’s read this piece of literature knows it’s a terrifying world of intricacy that now as an adult- rings all too true. For the last few years as the energy of the universe has forced a quickening i began to have utterly un-instigated flashbacks of this book. The experience of reading it seemed to be something that engraved itself into my memory and even 15+ years later my recollection of this world created where all appear to be contented on the surface, every whim available to be satisfied- pleasure and excess at fingertips, is haunting. The undercurrent of course was that this so-called paradaisical stability was achieved only through the sacrifice of liberty and personal freedom. And as the proverbial onion peels further and further and the truths are ever-revealed- the similarities are all too coincidental when viewed through a conscious-lens.

Soma, In the novel “Brave New World” was a legal drug made abundantly available by the one-world government, ( ultimately to mask the fact that the ‘utopian dream’ was really a dystopian nightmare) its users encouraged to pop soma at any sign of discomfort or unhappiness ..”one cubic centimetre cures ten gloomy sentiments” ( 3. ) its beneficial side effects included those under the soma-coma being a vacant, docile, distracted, dis-engaged populus,

“half a gramme for a half-holiday, a gramme for a week-end, two grammes for a trip to the gorgeous East, three for a dark eternity on the moon…” (4. )

4. Aldous Huxley, Brave New World 1932, United Kingdom: Chatto & Windus – chapter 3. 239

In Huxley’s opus – the drug itself became a primary control mechanism as the dystopian society began to unravel and the protagonist began to see the truth, he tossed his soma from a tall window to reclaim his liberation.Drawing terrifying similarities to the modern day anti-depressants that mute the masses. The staggering statistics do not lie- in the last two decades anti-depressant use is up 400% ( 5. ) and an estimated 24 million Americans are now on some daily-form of Anti-depressant or another. Canada it seems just made a leap to the top of the list with the highest amount of users per-capita of various SSRI’s ( 42 million prescriptions were filled @ Pharmacies in 2012) ( 6. )

6. Psychiatrist warns against trying to cure ordinary sadness as Canadians among top users of Antidepressants: National Post, Ottawa 01.19.2014

Having a little experience with anti-depressants and their effects myself i find these numbers terrifying… when i was in my late teens i had a case of insomnia after i moved home from my California paradise, left my family and was in an intense growth phase; instead of suggesting some yoga or talk therapy i was prescribed a series of 7 or 8 different drugs which i would have filled at the pharmacy, take for two days and discontinue for fear i was losing my mind. The longest i lasted on any of the drugs was ‘wellbutrin’ i think, which i successfully took for a period of two weeks. Last year while digging through my hope chest filled with notebooks and journals i came across some writing from that period in my life, which was riddled with darkness and a profound state of numbed out detachment from myself. Finally i put my foot down with the Dr. who was using me as her guinea pig- and after gaining around 40 pounds and losing pieces of my mind i set out to find my own therapeutic answers… Ultimately all i remember from that period of about 9 months was this wall that went up this wall between myself and the rest of the world, this wall that separated me even from my love who i slept with each night, this wall that forced me into feeling that i was an impotent, incapable being – with no connection to the universe.

“Soma had raised a quite impenetrable wall between the actual universe and their minds.” – Brave New World.

The damage done to countless people by this tethering tool is a multi-leveled masterpiece executed with ease. The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Clinical Psychiatry ( 7. ) discusses Perhaps the best known psychological side effect of SSRIs is “amotivational syndrome”, (8. ) with symptoms clinically similar to those of frontal lobe brain damage, This condition is characterized by apathy, dis-inhibited behavior, de-motivation and a personality change similar to the effects of lobotomy. ( interesting that Charles Perkins letter above on fluoride said something similar ) When Yale University’s Department of Psychiatry analyzed the admissions to their hospital’s psychiatric unit, ( 9. ) they found that 8.1% of the patients were “found to have been admitted owing to antidepressant mania or psychosis” Other psychological effects include: insomnia, agitation, anxiety, nervousness, restlessness, mania, dysphoria, poor concentration, low libido and appetite, diminished impulse control among other well documented side effects. There are also several reports that associate these drugs with parkinsons disease and akathisia ( severe inner restlessness) If that’s not enough there are also reports that those who suffer from akathisia are also prone to aggression and suicide. After what could only be thousands of suicides the FDA finally let it slip that a the risk of suicide for children receiving SSRIs can be up to three times higher than placebo, in Adults that number goes up to 4. 10.

If you are lucky enough to be outside the ratio at risk for suicide, Antidepressants produce long-term, irreversible chemical & structural changes to your brain and body.

The administration of Prozac and Paxil raises cortisol levels ( which is the chemical responsible for stress – elevated levels can cause weight gain, immune issues, depression etc. ) In addition to this a recent study reported by Natural News, (11. ) has shown that taking anti-depressants during pregnancy doubles your chances of giving birth to an Autistic Child. A large Swedish study published in the British Medical Journal included more than 1,600 autistic children whose mothers took any kind of antidepressant during their pregnancy. The results showed an increased incidence of autism in the antidepressant group compared to a control group. A second study published in 2011 showed a 2-fold increased risk of autism if mothers took antidepressants in the year before delivery and a 3-fold increased risk with antidepressant use in the first trimester of pregnancy. These results were compared to mothers with a known history of mental illness, but without use of antidepressants and their children did not show an increased risk of autism.”

11. Do antidepressants in pregnancy cause autism? -Randall Neustaedter OMD, May.10.2013

Yet another study has suggested that exposure to SSRI’s can arrest the very development of neurons in the brain; which when given to developing brains of children, coupled with the onslought of toxins they are up against from their very conception, doesn’t give us much hope for our future as free people.

It’s not difficult to conclude why these numbers are so high, when in Canada alone the anti-depressant sales account for upwards of $1.8 billion per year. ( yes big pharma’s profit margins are the becoming the highest of any industry ) The bulk of prescriptions are written by general practitioners or ‘family doctors’ with little to no experience in diagnosing mental illness, but a great deal of license when it comes to potentially altering someone’s existence permanently. The kick-backs from big-pharma are no secret, even hollywood revealed them in a film called ‘Love and Other Drugs’ – trips to Hawaii, cash rewards, neverending incentives to continue to dole out the drugs- and its really not all their fault when it comes down to the truth, anti-depressants are celebrated, they have become it seems, just like soma, as a cure-all for nearly every ill emotion. According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, psychiatry’s official guidebook of mental sickness, people can meet the criteria for major depressive disorder if they experience two weeks’ worth of a depressed mood most of the day, loss of interest, changes in appetite, reduced energy and problems sleeping ( consider the last time you went through a break-up or lost your job or simply experienced the often negative emotions that express themselves in normal-daily life, these emotions do not signify illness but moreso the spirit’s need to evolve, to transcend the manifested feelings caused by humanity’s oppressed destiny to awaken )

Instead of meeting the challenges of life, the challenges of evolution, the challenge of ‘waking-up’ with bold tenacity, we are quick to hit the help button and the result is repressing our spirits. The shocking number of children and teenagers whom are regularly put on drugs is tragic degradation to the future of humanity; when the reality is that growing up is tough, adolescence is tough, kids behaviour regularly mimics the so-called basis for diagnosis, but as easily as that behaviour could be a chemical-imbalance it could be a hormonal-imbalance ( please read the first volume of this series wherein i discuss ‘hormones gone haywire’ …hormones cause all manner of seeming mentally ill’ behaviour- if you do not believe this statement, talk to a pregnant woman. The medicating of un-happiness is a tool. It tethers us to our unhappiness, it tethers us to our negative emotions, it tethers us to the belief that there is something ‘wrong’ with feeling anxious or sad or with the expression of dis-satisfaction, when the ultimate truth that is overlooked is that happiness is our default state- and that default state is altered by an ever-evolving plethora of toxins and factors that herein i strive to reveal- happiness is an expectation that people put upon themselves because of the cultivated culture of instant gratification yields.

Over-diagnosis is an epidemic that is progressing at an alarming rate and given the ultimate outcome of these drugs- it’s society’s biggest enemy. At the same time, it is the responsibility of each and every person to question, question the veracity of the drug ads on TV, question the quick diagnosis of a Dr. getting kickbacks, question your emotions, question why they exist, what is it they are striving to teach you; as with every feeling we have that is manifested from our brains there is a lesson to be learned that we often ignore. The most beautiful sentiment i’ve heard was shared with me by a Spanish Yogi, who i fell in love with in Tulum- as i sat next to him on a bed the day before i was to leave, the tears streaming down my face, he said that sadness was so beautiful, as beautiful as being happy for in ultimate understanding they are the same. The yin side of sad and the yang side of happy create the balance that we need to sustain.

final words:

Realistically when it comes to control and mind control- the use of pharma and other drugs extends far beyond simple SSRI’s etc. the systematic drugging of human beings as part of programming was and continues to be a reality in North America. Whether its through chemicals in your food, in your drinking water, in your ‘harmless’ Western Medicine, in your flu shots, in the vaccines your thoughtlessly and routinely administer your children- there is an all out war happening for your mind, your body and your spirit.

There are under-cover operations in use throughout the world as a means to rewire and control people for specific motives and to serve specific purposes. There are currently individuals in the media spotlight who are victims of this programming which involves acts beyond moral-minded comprehension. There are those who you watch regularly who upon cue, ( a specific hand gesture or word ) can be snapped into or out of a particular state of mind- similar to a robot or machine- thus unwittingly forced to carry out the plans of their oppressors. There is not much else i wish to communicate on this subject for the reasons stated in my disclaimer, however there is ample information out there for those who wish to take their understanding on the role of mind control programming, pharmaceuticals, drugs etc. in modern mainstream media – further, unraveling its deliberate use in tethering the masses.

#MassMainstreamMediaMindcontrol

Those on the conscious path are no doubt, to some degree, aware of the strategic, methodical orchestrated plan to dominate our free will, beliefs, and our actions- trapped in a cycle of consumerism, escapism via celebrity worship and an endless string of programming of every flavour.

Again- this particular aspect of tethering is one that is so incredibly vast, so deep and so wide that diving into it runs the risk of inadvertant drowning. The understanding that every aspect of our senses is being categorically assailed through all that we consume – is a frightening truth that can overwhelm and bombard even as it is meant to heal.

at present 5 major corporations control all media in the US- in Canada we are not much better. That 5 is ever shrinking with continuous acquisition of startups and countless other media business of every kind from tv station to apps and the continuous strive to push out the little guys and blanket the masses with strategic image, message and means to its own end.

the medium is the message: television, music, mayhem:

#Device Disconnect:

Is a term i have come to use when referring to the degradation of our social systems, communication structures and the individual ability to engage in healthy interpersonal communication, the millenials coming up just under me seem to be of an entirely different species and breed altogether as the gen X&Y that defined those like me, who came up in the age where call waiting was the newest innovation and we barely touched a computer until the age of 18 ( that’s true, my first computer was an IBM my parents bought when i was in my senior year of high school ) The new generations are raised entirely on technology, and nearly come fresh out of the womb with the ability to text. No longer is cursive handwriting or literary and grammatical standard upheld in education and prose has given way to acronyms. A generation that relies on emoticons to convey their feelings to one another. Behind a screen, whatever the size- seeking connection in so many social media outlets, defining who they are through carefully crafted profiles projecting what it is they wish to be vs. striving to be who they are. Once a friend described the rise of social media as a ” self absorbed ticker tape of egotistical delusion” i laughed as this was in the early days of facebook and twitter feeds and while both coming from a communications background we saw the rise of this movement as something groundbreaking for marketing yet devastating for authentic communication. Selfies are the new skill teenage girls and boys strive to master, neverending duck-faces with bathroom backdrops, amidst the deconstruction of any photographic standard – a generation, a world disintegrates from itself…  in a world more connected than ever before, with more ways to unite and come together…we stand divided. The communications and technology industry has shaped the evolution of youth to become more of a shrinking shadow, endless masses coming up with a gaping hole of inequity around what true, honest, real communication is. Social retardation is a disease perhaps propagated in silicon valley as more startups find more ways to disconnect people from themselves and one another, a multi-billion dollar industry profiting from impersonal, disconnection. It’s a travesty really, when considered, those of the younger generation are no longer rewarded for good grades with the promise of cars and college funds but indulged with tablets and wifi hubs that promise a potential future filled with face to face impotence.

What i am striving to say here, is not the systematic slander of technology, god knows i appreciate my Skype-ability it allows me freedom from cell phones, and i definitely wouldn’t know what to do without my iMac, but i also have the blessing of understanding that a face to face apology certainly counts for alot more than a text-breakup, and i have wisened to the ways that ‘they’ have capitalized upon this culture of device driven living. Endless apps and countless convenient ways to make ones life better, never-wavering wifi signals mean that wherever you are, you can be tracked. Like a dog with a homing device in its collar- wherever you go, with your smartphone engaged you are potentially a moving target. The NSA ‘spying’ scandal is no news nor is it a joke. It’s a reality that those who are aware and take seriously- and in our day to day communications we wisely choose to take many of our important discussions ‘offline’

In an internet age we face possibly as many obstacles as we do benefits, all things considered. The rise of the web has been an irreplaceable opportunity for connection and considering the many issues, scandals and obstacles that its safety- as a space of free expression, freedom of information and freedom to unite and to fortify- faces, let’s pray it remains that way. The reality is that there is a consistent threat to privacy, a consistent threat to anonymity that is inherently promised by the web, a consistent threat to your ability as a free person of your nation to gather and disseminate information, to assemble, to unite and to seek the truth. What was invented as an infinitely wide bridge between gaps- continues to run the risk of becoming infinitesimal in its ability to provide security to cross those bridges.

Think you aren’t affected by this? Think that you aren’t being programmed by your technology?… consider basic human interaction- have ever broken up with someone via text? basic written communication skills… do you think UR and LOL are reasonable forms of speech to use regardless of circumstance? Take an inventory of devices, how many do you own? How many hours per day do you spend staring at a screen, the size is irrelevant- for infiltration cannot be measured in pixel ratio or in widescreen – of what nature is the information that you consume on these devices? Immediately subtract the hours spent toiling for whatever your means for revenue generation is, and specifically focus on what manner of ‘entertainment’ you consume. How much television do you watch on a weekly basis? What is the nature of that programming? What is your favourite show? All of these questions, regardless of individual answer- have the same answer really- no matter what screen size you consume your data from, you’re prey to manipulation, there’s an app to tell you what to eat, track where you are at all moments, an app to remind you, an app to get you laid, an app to show you where to go, what to see what to wear, how to think, feel and breathe- a culture becoming ever more reliant on smartdevices in place of smarts. Artificial intelligence has taken on a whole new meaning in the new millenium and most would be at a complete and paralytic loss without their iPhone to help ‘program’ their life.

So whether it’s a tablet screen or a TV screen, and whether you watch CNN or MTV- you can bet what’s left of your freedom- that your reality is being strategically and fundamentally altered, engineered and encoded with subliminal messaging enough to change your mind.

#a word from your sponsors …  

Consider first, the term ‘programming’- how often have you meditated on the whys and whats behind the purpose of using this term to describe what is shown to you on the screen? there is a reason it is called programming, and that is far less to do with scheduling than it is brainwashing. From ‘reality’ shows to Fox ‘news’ info-tainment, switch on the TV at any time of the day and you will witness what has become a full-scale attack on your consciousness. The foundation that allows this assault on your reality to go on, is funded largely in part by product placement and 30 second spots that subliminally and blatantly play upon your weakness, your uncertainty, your self-esteem, your emotional intelligence being consistently manipulated to serve the bottom lines of brands that have built this modern world. In essence you are being told what to do, who to love, what you are worth and consequently what you are not worth unless you buy that new cosmetic or cadillac. Indeed the very essence of your spirit is being drained from you at an energetic level, while your ego is being played upon to drive the quarterly sales figures.

Marketing itself will have a spot on this list all to itself so i wont waste too much precious time articulating its place in the formula; however elemental here is that you understand the level of control that marketing has on your life; especially when you are engaged both visually and verbally, the television commercial has its roots in control- mastered, is the art of influence, certain is the notion that you will buy.

By the age of 23, i was brought to a decision that would change my life forever. Staring at University course catalogs i had narrowed my focus down to 2 separate paths- i would either go forth with my god-given talent, follow the sound of my soul and enroll in Journalism- or i could choose Advertising, Something entirely foreign and entirely opposite to my character in so many ways. Never in my life had i any interest in marketing, advertising or any semblance of sales- in fact i felt a guttural disgust when pondering what it must be like to live life as a salesperson- pushing product and whoring useless junk that no person really needs… yet the moment of truth came- and as i weighed out my decisions i took an unexpected turn. I suffered for a while under the weight of this decision.. ( did i make it just to please my partner – did i follow the dollar instead of my heart? why did i do this?!!)
It was only a year or so after graduating and taking a gig at my first agency that it became clear to me- the choice i made to go against the perceived current of my life, diving into unknown waters and potentially committing to a life of whoring product – was in fact one of the single most brilliant decisions i have ever made. It became clear to me, as i learned the sinister, smarmy nature of the industry and became wise to the clever sociopathic strategies that compose campaigns to convert and control consumers- that by mastering this knowledge, by becoming enlightened to the manipulations of marketing i could never be controlled by it. In effect i was holding the key to freedom in a very real way. Equipped with the hard won wisdom of what is in many ways beyond deplorable, i was armed with the capacity to create change on an entirely different level.

Back to the topic at hand- much of the funding for television programming is based on advertising dollars- primetime spots during superbowl are sold for millions, american idol and other fabricated circuses of exploitation no doubt garner the same- millions of viewers each week tune in to watch mindless drivel that is doing unspoken, unrealized damage to their lives and the deep pockets behind all of this belong to the brands that invest millions in hiring agencies to hock their shit to consumer masses who will, without doubt venture off to purchase their junk if its spotted on a celebrity, or product-placed within a sitcom or sponsoring a show that they invest their lives in following… Marketing is an original mind control. Its strategies are built to play upon your needs, ignite your egos, harness your weakness, influence your actions, convince you to endlessly fall prey. billions spent each year on researching your behaviours, taking stock of every move you make, every minute you spend and how you spend it. This information is used to develop the slogans and create the images, compel the clicks- that sell you your shoes and make you hungry for poisonous food that will give you cancer. It’s psychological warfare and most are unaware they’re in a battle.

#television programming

The programs on television itself are another beast- sitcoms are scripted to engage your emotions, to showcase circumstances that resonate with your own, or to showcase worlds that humble folk only dream of. Useless digressions that are propped up by the funding of corporate criminals who are earning their filthy fortunes on the backs of your demise. Has Reality television has been crafted to hold a mirror up – to show the viewer himself? To portray ‘reality’ ?…a reality that is riddled with strategic manipulations, sociopathic experiments full of petty bickering, chaotic and useless competition hoisting up ego that all serves no constructive means but to further confuse your senses. Competitive television programs that feature ‘normal people’ who are following a dream being whisked off to hollywood to sing or to dance and be judged upon their talents or in 99% of cases their lack thereof) as they are edited from the script. Whatever fuels the ratings that commands more expensive media space is what makes its way to your home plasma and hearts; Not only that; but the content of most of what makes it to the screen is heavily laden with subliminal messaging beyond the advertising, its intentions are built upon the systematic sensationalism of destruction, desensitization, disconnection and devolution. Behind the TV set lays an intricate world of corruption and ill will, behind the glammed up red carpet events, beyond the stages of idol and away from the eyes of the millions who pay millions to play unwitting victim, there is an army of elite with an agenda that certainly does not align with the morality that the Nation is supposedly built upon. The relentless assault on your senses is a 24 hour a day affair that requires no guest list, no need to leave the comfort of your couch and no path to awakening. Simply tuning in to that channel is a frequency of discord – regardless of soundtrack. The energetic impact alone is an attack on vitality. Sapping your life force without ever touching you.

Perhaps the most devastating aspect of all of this is a semi-newly coined term- ‘ TV Kids’ tv-kids are described as children who are regularly cared for, distracted, and raised up from infancy by television sets. Plopped in front of them – sit the future of humanity, being raised by commercials and animated manipulation. This is the equivalent of feeding your children nothing but cheetos and chocolate bars every meal for a month- make no mistake, It’s both junk food for the mind and programming for the behaviour- Dangerous and stealth like an asymptomatic disease that creeps up slowly and destroys your insides, turning generations into disconnected, apathetic, angry, aggressive, desensitized and entirely programmed versions of themselves.

Here are some statistics to bring some clarity to this disease.

According to the A.C. Nielsen Co., the average American watches more than 4 hours of TV each day (or 28 hours/week, or 2 months of nonstop TV-watching per year). In a 65-year life, a person will have spent 9 years glued to the tube.

• Number of minutes per week that parents spend in meaningful conversation with their children: 3.5
• Number of minutes per week that the average child watches television: 1,680
• The average child will watch 8,000 murders on TV before finishing elementary school.
• An average American child will see 200,000 violent acts and 16,000 murders on TV by age 18
• Media technology now offers more ways to access TV content, such as on the Internet, cell phones and iPods. This has led to an increase in time spent viewing TV, even as TV-set viewing has declined. 41% of TV-viewing is now online, time-shifted, DVD or mobile
• A University of Michigan researcher demonstrated that watching violent media can affect willingness to help others in need : Read about the study here: Comfortably Numb: Desensitizing Effects of Violent Media on Helping Others.
• According to the AAP, “Extensive research evidence indicates that media violence can contribute to aggressive behavior, desensitization to violence, nightmares, and fear of being harmed.” Watching violent shows is also linked with having less empathy toward others.
• Even having the TV on in the home is linked to more aggressive behavior in 3-year-olds. This was regardless of the type of programming and regardless of whether the child was actually watching the TV
• Advertisers target kids, and on average, children see tens of thousands of TV commercials each year This includes many ads for unhealthy snack foods and drinks. Children and youth see, on average, about 2,000 beer and wine ads on TV each year . ( see resources @ the end )

Don’t be fooled. Beyond these statistics are agendas.

So. Why cultivate nations of disconnected, apathetic, angry, aggressive, de-sensitized and morally questionable people? I ask you to meditate upon that as you continue to read…

When it comes to media it goes so far beyond simply the television programming, it’s a multi-trillion dollar, multi-dimensional, multi-media campaign to mold you.

Beyond television alone, there are of course the hollywood big budget manipulations rife with symbolism and blatant tactic- effectively reaching billions via the box office. There are apps, ads, sites, shops, sites all carefully crafted by a shadow elite, there have always been billboard top 40 soundtracks that fuel the agenda- puppeteered pop stars programmed with their messages, music videos hiding imagery in plain sight revealing point blank who it is that programs your entertainment, and your entrainment.

Media is a trillion dollar feast for all, greedy corporations gag you with their filthy cocks and with eyes wide shut – it’s welcomed with open-mouths.

Multi-trillion dollar mega-empires continue to be built up and torn down by ‘they’ whom strive for your ultimate destruction. Just watch the tabloids and the entertainment news shows- watchdogs for whichever celebrities happen to be executing their programming flawlessly, and for those who aren’t well there is always rehab…

As far as we could go with media, we’ve made the choice not to delve into the music industry to exemplify its power. prowess and persuasion over the populus, trust us when we say soundtracking your life has a much different meaning when looked at through the lens of truth.

The medium is the message and the message needs to come through without distortion. There are thousands of peeps who have dedicated thousands of hours to out-ing the hidden messages and exposing the true nature of major mainstream media – and while its true- up against mainstream programming and without billions of advertising dollars behind them they become not much more than wielders of nonsense and conspiracy. However there are more and more and more every day who are #WakingTFU and wherever you look, if you can cut through egoic overtones and personal agenda pushers, there is always truth to be found and there will always be propoganda, projection, psychological warfare and political agendas in the strive to lead you astray… We leave it with you to distill your own understanding…it’s yours for the taking.

excerpt: ” Type ‘television’ and ‘low vibrational energy’ into a search engine, and it’ll quickly return the fact that watching a lot of TV is like undressing your mind and submerging it into a bath of negative energy.

Essentially, you go on ‘auto-pilot’.”

Final Words:

Beyond marketing and media’s grip, beyond the things you consume which end up controlling you – beyond the reaches of anyone… is your spirit.

Obviously the aforementioned is only just a glimpse into the vast array of ways in which we are subject to being tethered… albeit within those few is a vile landscape of endless and interconnected proportion. Even just the small measure of this truth shared herein- ought be enough to instigate action in those willing to embody and live within the truth. Consider the reality that This is only number two in a list of the 10 truths- and already we have covered a mammoth amount of challenges facing modern day warriors in the battle to ascend.

This volume of the ten truths series, as profoundly intricate and vast in proportion as it is, took me over 2 months to write. …Sitting down for hours at a time in front of my computer, gathering resources and diving into research to backup the truth that i so desperately wanted to deliver- left me exhausted each time i undertook to finish it, regularly i would write a few paragraphs, gather sums of information and regularly it would render me physically ill or suffocated- due to the sheer weight of it all… ( this happened over and over 15 times according to wordpress’s ‘revisions count’ ) and as such i would have to return to the primary piece of advice offered with this series, which is the teaching of balance. I would walk away for days, sometimes weeks and wait for the call to return in fortitude to strive to finish it. Please hold the lesson of balance in your consciousness always, and especially during this quickening, this time of great awakening, being in balance grants warriors the fortitude to keep striving to thrive.

Humanity was not always like this, we did not always live under a paradigm that places manufactured wealth higher on the food chain than human happiness or basic personal liberty. At an overall what has happened to us, is that we have forgotten our identities. Humans were once ( and will again become ) 4th and 5th dimensional beings with the ability to manifest any reality they dreamed up at the blink of an eye. We were once a great and noble race that lived in harmony with the understanding of the ultimate truth of existence which is that we are all one. Interconnected and unified in the great cosmic consciousness. Encoded in our DNA is the truth of our capabilities, written within our essence are the answers we spend a lifetime seeking. This life is a great remembrance, and bless the blood in our veins we are waking up from amnesia.

watch: the hidden history of humanity:

The ultimate understanding is that we already are everything we can be- but an ever widening gap in memory and an ever-increasing opposition that seeks to keep us blinded and divided – keeps us from this truth. Seeks to control our ability to reclaim our birthright and remember ourselves.

The path to this remembrance is fraught with so much chaos its often as if we are akin to salmon struggling our way against the stream to make our way to fertile grounds.

Elemental to reversing the flow of the current is identifying that which opposes us, that which seeks to catch us in its nets and splay us across tables of rich folks on cedar planks, smoked with a side of fragrant dill.

Those who exist in the darkness, who toil to create tragedy, who traverse miles and spend millions to build intricate strategies to keep you from what is already yours- the biggest travesty is that those feeble, anti-heroes should win you over. That you should leave this earthly incarnation without ever truly knowing the taste of freedom, without ever truly understanding all that’s within you. Without ever truly loving yourself completely. Without ever truly returning to your default nature of thriving. That is what drives me to write, that is what keeps me moving forward, that is what i sacrifice for, what i continue to push myself with- the belief that by inspiring you to your ultimately beautiful nature – you might ultimately awaken to yourself.

may you be nourished by your knowledge and may your Warrior’s arsenal be ever-expanded as you shed your ignorance for awakening…

With continued service to the light,

our best defense and our only hope of salvation really given the state of reality in the world we live in is to in essence- crack our genetic code and reclaim our divine understanding, our birthright – which is a default state of unity, thriving and empowerment; is to learn to be mindful in our lives. Not only mindful in the sense of being present for each moment of our lives- but mindful in our consumption, mindful in our actions, and mindful of our wellness. Love your temple, ignorance is not bliss. The luckiest woman on earth is one whom knows herself, embraces the truth of herself wholeheartedly, embodies gratitude for the earth and with beloved appreciation of the interconnectedness of all things, strives to walk the path in loving, artful reverence. Evolution follows a path of release and cleansing, the cycle of creation follows destruction and after we learn to wield our own light- we have the capacity to challenge the darkness…

I was asked just now…
“Do you ever wonder if our entire universe is quite simply the dream of some random fifth dimensional being… And we are but details and dynamics that craft the most intricate, beautiful and rich tapestry of a deep delta REM”…
an entirely nonchalant inquiry that led me to recall my own relative curiosities previously pondered… Perhaps we are indeed as simple as the tiniest seed of a dandelion floating across a vast verdant field, blown by the hopeful breath of a child wishing for a life of love…

what do you think?

How we like our oil:

Organic, Cold-pressed & Unrefined: ( virgin or extra-virgin) – this oil is from fresh nuts, sans-processing or heat, it is the purest, most organic form of the tropical nectar. Also the tastiest, and most nutrient-dense, this pristine virgin nectar carries with it a deliciously mild sensory experience.

please purchase no hydrogenated, refined, blasphemized BPA-packaged abominations.

when considering which brands to buy here in Canada- we have a slew of options- but as a small digression it serves to be said:  where coconuts actually grow is a whole different level, i recall the first time i was taught to make coconut oil in Tulum, from fresh coconuts that were harvested by a Spanish-bearded Hippie from Montreal who shimmied up a tree in some manner of renaissance ancestral throwback to our ape brothers. These treasures were so abundant on the beach- those months and months i lived there i nearly became ( nearly ) sometimes too accustomed to the bounty and had to remind myself what a gift it was; this is especially resonant now, back in Canada when the tetra packed mass packaged and horrifically priced knock-offs of coconut water are more and more prevalent on store shelves. making the oil is actually a simple process that requires only a few items and some patience. baby coconuts yield not only the best meat but the best by=products all around- the water is potent, but not like that that comes form older nuts- and is borderline kombucha-esque… in a gentle means-business manner.

so needless to say those other lucky warriors whom have also had the luxury of living in a climate where wacking down a bunch of coconuts and indulging in all day replenishment is a natural part of daily life- will attest to the difference between authentic and what is available in the upper north america. that said, there are some leaders in the coconut oil bottling business that i believe are doing a bang-up job at harnessing the best and most authentic goodness…

let’s get down to the list: and please note, this piece is definitely going to be on-going, there is no way i will be able to spell out every use, every wonder and every benefit in one piece without writing a novel-length discourse. consider this vol. 1 of a never-ending series. 🙂 

Coconut Oil & Overall  Health and Wellness

1. Appetite controller – the goods fats in the oil actually trigger release of hormones which slow down movement of foods through the digestive tract – and thus prolongs the feeling of fullness after eating
2. Breastfeeding – this is a no brainer for sore nips but also for enriching the milk itself, by taking a few tablespoons a day it actually helps increase the production of milk.
3. Bones and Teeth – aids the absorption of calcium and magnesium which empowers bones and teeth
4. Blood Sugar Stabilizer: by improving insulin secretion, and how your body actually uses blood glucose. it’s a great choice for diabetics and those who suffer from issues with glycemia / blood sugar levels
5. Digestion –  saturated fats in coconut oil help control bacteria, parasites and fungi that lead to digestive issues like crohns, IBS and gastric ulcers; also noted here is its ability to aid in the absobtion of vitamins, minerals, amino acids etc. boosting the bio-availability factor of your daily supplementing regime.
6. Energy Boost – gives you a boost of energy and is often rccod to athletes or those in intense physically demanding conditions as a quick pickmeup- as it also helps with endurance.

10. Prevents oxidation of fatty acids
11. Skin care – the benefits for your skin, are endless- and could be an article within itself ( and most likely will be ) so i will just hit a few topnotes here, ( skincare companies have been trying to mimic the healing and nourishing goodness of this liquid goddessesence; all of them failing miserably but still making billions in profit via consumer ignorance and glossy marketing tactic ) – coconut oil is a protector from free radical and oxidative damage to your skin, it promotes firmer, smoother, more hydrated, more radiant skin-  ( ok. seriously- there really aint nothin’ this DOESNT do for your skin. )  and those who worry about the notion of putting oil on your face need not, coconut oil ain’t that kind of oil. its medium chain triglyceride molecular makeup is not the proper size to clog pores ) – on top of it all – coconut oil provides up to 20SPF, making it a fantastic alternative to chemical-filled sunscreens and liquid gold for getting tropical glow.
12.Stress Relief – if the notion that you are at once losing weight, becoming younger, preventing disease, reversing aging, replenishing your body’s vital nutrients and pretty much all around tapping in to the fountain of youth by incorporating coconut oil into your life, doesn’t reduce your overall stress level; you can look to it to relieve mental fatigue by perhaps indulging in a coconut oil massage– apply it to your head, hands, torso, and everywhere else you can reach and massage in a circular motion, the scent itself will soothe you into an aromatherapeutic state of beachy-bliss-like relief. -(  the aroma of coconut is a known therapeutic stress reliever. ) and if you want to get sexy, have someone else rub you down with it. it makes, bar-none, the ultimate massage oil… and if you get sexy, it also makes unbelievably fantastic lube. 😉
13. Vitamin and nutrient absorption – boosts the bioavailability of other important supplements.
14. Weight loss – medium chain fatty acids contribute to overall weight loss by producing energy in the body vs. fat. meaning even though it is a saturated fat -it actually boosts metabolic rate contribute to weight loss and also increases metabolic rate, stimulates metabolism, improves thyroid function, and with the boost of energy you are also getting- acts as an all around must-have dietary supplement. helps build lean muscle mass.

 A note on wee ones:

From cradle cap, to colic to diaper rash to teething to a healthy and hydrating addition to formula, the incorporation of coconut oil into baby’s life is essential. There are countless products on the market that are riddled with toxins- literally try going into the children’s department at any store and seeking out a product sans PEG, paraben, sulfate, or petroleum-based ethanols; it’s nearly impossible and terribly frightening to be introducing these carcinogens so early in life. So please take this guide and adapt it as you see fit for use in your young one’s life. I can almost guarantee that even replacing the essentials like diaper cream, baby wipes and talcs will result in a far more even tempered, healthy child.  There are no doubt countless mommy blogs out there singing the praises and offering up the recipes and secret weapons for integrating this into daily-life. If you are a mommy or a mommy to be, do your whole family a favour.

Coconut oil cleans up

• use it to clean counters, floors, stoves, sinks, toilets, remove stains from laundry, take wax out of clothing, clean silverware, protect ceiling fans from dust accumulation, wax your car, clean carpet stains and remove odours, clean walls from fingerprints and assist in the removal of stubborn wallpaper, clean and deodorize your fridge, remove stickers and other sticky substances from nearly any object, add lemon, baking soda and vinegar to make bar-none the best eco- cleaning product of all time.

…all that and you can eat it!

As if all of those sublime uses were not enough, the most prevalent use in modern culture for coconut oil is in cuisine. Since the dawn of time this oil has been held sacred an incorporated into daily diets in a plethora of creative ways that contribute to optimal health. Use it as a cooking oil or butter substitute in your gluten free baking-( use a 1 cup to 1 cup ratio when replacing butter in recipes with coconut oil.) Add it to shakes, smoothies, juices and teas for a superfood supplementation, Use it frozen into ice-cube trays, as a salad dressing, or soup-addition, steep herbs in it for delicious extracts… the ideas are as vast as your beautiful imagination.

A Secret Weapon with more uses than duct tape.

From bases for homemade products to clean fuel for cars, to lubing up your shovels in the cold winter for easy snow-catching action ( seriously i just did this today after a massive february-dumping of snow )  to cleaning paint from your brushes, to removing gum from your kid’s hair, to freeing a stuck zipper, to stopping a squeaky mattress to lubing your guitar strings to lubing your lover… the benefits are endless and the best part is you can get as creative as you like. I will continue adding to this list as i discover more uses, but no doubt at this point – like myself you are probably asking the question- is there truly, feasibly anything this miraculous oil can’t do?!?! and my dears i believe the answer is a resounding no. In fact if there is something that you discover coconut oil is not good for, let us know and we will purchase your next jar for you. In the meantime feel free to go all cocoloco.
