3 Logical Reasons GMOs Should Be Banned

A GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) is defined as “the manipulation of an organism’s genetic make-up in order to create or enhance desirable characteristics from the same or another species” (Australian Department of the Environment and Heritage, 2001).

While it’s true that natural genetic manipulation of crops can be traced throughout history, it wasn’t until 1980 that scientists discovered how to isolate specific DNA that could then be transferred into another organism. This differs from natural plant breeding as “GM (Genetically Modified) uses laboratory techniques to insert artificial gene units to re-programme the DNA blueprint of the plant with completely new properties.

This process would never happen in nature. The artificial gene units are created in the laboratory by joining fragments of DNA, usually derived from multiple organisms, including viruses, bacteria, plants and animals.

18 Signs of High Emotional Intelligence

Emotional Intelligence

Travis Bradberry, Guest
Waking Times

“Emotional intelligence is the “something” in each of us that is a bit intangible. It affects how we manage behavior, navigate social complexities, and make personal decisions to achieve positive results.”

When emotional intelligence (EQ) first appeared to the masses, it served as the missing link in a peculiar finding: people with average IQs outperform those with the highest IQs 70 per cent of the time. This anomaly threw a massive wrench into the broadly held assumption that IQ was the sole source of success.

Decades of research now point to emotional intelligence as being the critical factor that sets star performers apart from the rest of the pack. The connection is so strong that 90 per cent of top performers have high emotional intelligence.

The Deliberate Trashing of Planet Earth

trashed-earth

Zen Gardner, Guest
Waking Times

Ultimately those who awaken invariably come up against a very big question; why would the so-called “elite” self-appointed rulers of this planet bring the house down around their own ears? Don’t they get irradiated, chemtrailed and ultimately modified like the rest of us? Aren’t their children in peril just like ours?

Underground bunkers or not, the rapid deterioration of our environment is leading toward a dead planet if their machinations aren’t halted some time very soon.

What these manipulators are up to is not life giving, it is death dealing. For humanity and all of nature. Why would anyone/anything do such a thing? To answer that, people first need to realize that that’s what they’re doing.

Deliberately trashing our planet.

Robbie asked, “God, When Will the Happiness Come?”

Yes, Robbie, when will the happiness come? I will answer you, yet I won’t give you a date. 
 
It isn’t so much that I answer questions. I answer the hearts of people who ask questions. If I answer: The world will sparkle in amazing Divine Light on a specific date in 2016… this isn’t really a helpful answer. It doesn’t help you to grow. Let Me tell you more.
 
My children tend to think that happiness is an outside job. It is such an inside job, you have no idea. Heavenletters that emphasize this point already exist. You have read them. Still, you are waiting for happiness to be handed to you. I tell you not to wait.
 
Let Us just say as an example that you won the $280,000,000 million dollar lottery. Let’s just say this for the sake of convenience. You would be happy, yes? Extremely happy, and this happiness will last a while, but not forever.
 
The happiness you gain will last longer than the happiness you might get from a lollipop, yet the happiness doesn’t last forever. You find you have other problems to solve. You have people asking you for money. Do they like you for yourself or for your money? You still have to handle your money. Meanwhile, you still are longing for your true love.
 
Okay, let’s just say that you won the lottery today. You are very very happy indeed. Excited. Overjoyed. Delirious with joy. You even have a little smile on your face right now with the thought of it.

Qi: The Vital Force That Holds The Balance Of Life

The concept of Qi has a long theoretical and practical history in traditional Chinese culture. Qi (pronounced ‘Chee’) is considered to be the vital energy that circulates around the body (and throughout nature). The concept is a key principle in Chinese traditional medicine where the cultivation and circulation of Qi through appropriate exercise is responsible for maintaining and improving the health of the mind and body.

Conversely, deficiencies or blockages in Qi flow result in imbalances that are the root causes of all sorts of disease and ailments. For many centuries, Chinese medicine has been mainly directed towards the ultimate goal of maintaining Qi balance in the body through certain exercises known as Qigong, acupuncture & acupressure massage and medicine concoctions from natural herbs and roots.

GFP Newsletter - 3/27/2015

MAN IS UNCONSCIOUS, ALTHOUGH HE BELIEVES HE IS CONSCIOUS. That very belief protects his unconsciousness. Man is ignorant, although he believes he knows. That very belief keeps the ignorance intact. Man is just the opposite of what he thinks he is. To understand this is the beginning of a great revolution.

To see where you are, what you are in actuality, needs courage. It is nice to believe in beautiful ideals. All ideals function only for one thing: they hide your reality; that's why we go on creating beautiful ideals. Not that we are really interested in those great ideals; our real interest is how to hide the ugly facts.

Warning Signs Your Chakras Are Out Of Balance

There are 7 main energy centers in the body, known as chakras. Each chakra is located throughout our body so that it correlates to specific body ailment and physical dysfunctions; each energy center also houses our mental and emotional strengths. When we have a physical issue, it creates weaknesses in our emotional behavior. When we release the stale energy from the body, it can undo any tightness, stiffness, or malfunction of that area.

The clearing of the energy can also balance our emotional state of mind. The Chakra Mind-Body Balance is a two-way street: if there are certain fears and emotions we are holding on to, we experience physical restrictions, too.

If you have achiness or stiffness, or certain reoccurring emotions and fears, read along and you may find out which chakra is affected or blocked.

1st or Root Chakra

Sits at the base of your spine, at your tailbone.

Physical imbalances in the root chakra include problems in the legs, feet, rectum, tailbone, immune system, male reproductive parts and prostrate gland. Those with imbalances here are also likely to experience issues of degenerative arthritis, knee pain, sciatica, eating disorders, and constipation.

Leave Facebook if you don't want to be spied on, warns EU

The European Commission has warned EU citizens that they should close their Facebook accounts if they want to keep information private from US security services, finding that current Safe Harbour legislation does not protect citizen’s data.

The comments were made by EC attorney Bernhard Schima in a case brought by privacy campaigner Maximilian Schrems, looking at whether the data of EU citizens should be considered safe if sent to the US in a post-Snowden revelation landscape.

“You might consider closing your Facebook account, if you have one,” Schima told attorney general Yves Bot in a hearing of the case at the European court of justice in Luxembourg.

When asked directly, the commission could not confirm to the court that the Safe Harbour rules provide adequate protection of EU citizens’ data as it currently stands.

10 Things to Let Go of That Will Make You Happier and Freer

HJ: Sometimes it’s not about creating happiness, it’s really just about removing everything that’s blocking our natural, organic happiness shinning from within.  Often times we already have what we seek but because we are looking outside of us for it, we miss the fact that it already exists within us.

Your Spiritual Evolution Is Calling You

by Veronica Lee

Just when we think we have an area of our lives dialed in, some spiritual guru will remind us, “the only constant is change.” Even if our ducks aren’t exactly in a row, the thought of change will often ruffle our mama-duck feathers as we worry about a whole host of “what if’s.” Our steadfast egos like constant constant, not constant change!

But, alas, we are ever-evolving, ever-shifting; physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. The transformations may be great or miniscule, but they are always there moving us along our journey of life.

As humans, there are times when our changes are so great that we clearly identify and acknowledge them. Physically speaking, our major transitions are the touchpoints of our development. Everything you want to know about such as What to Expect When You’re Expecting,, Your Growing Child, Adolescent Development, and Aging Well can be answered in a multitude of books.

Costa Rica Has Been Running On 100% Renewable Energy For The Past 75 Days!

Source: www.trueactivist.com | Original Post Date: March 23, 2015 –

costa-rica-has-been-running-on-100-renewable-energy-for-the-past-75-days

The Costa Rican Electricity Institute announced this week that the country has been using nothing but renewable energy for the past 75 days. For an area this large to go this long running on strictly renewable energy is truly unprecedented, although Costa Rica is a small country.

This year, Costa Rica saw heavy rainfalls, which were harnessed by a number of hydroelectric plants that have been built in the country. According the government agency, there have been no fossil fuels used to generate electricity since December of last year.

In addition to the hydroelectric plants, the country also has a number of geothermal energy sites, which account for 10% of the region’s energy reserves. New geothermal projects are expected to develop in the coming year as well.

Yes, Music is a Form of Meditation


Credit: Mariomorataya.tumblr.com

By Wes Annac, The Culture of Awareness

I’ve been saying for a while that I think music is one of the most spiritual things we can do, and I’ll always stand by that opinion.

I have people like the Marley family to thank for this profound realization, and through their music, they’ve helped me see that we can use this incredible medium to connect with a higher aspect of our consciousness.

Music has been called ‘the language of God’ or ‘the language of the soul’, and for good reason. If consistently practiced for the right reasons, it can connect us with the Supreme in a way that nothing except meditation can help us achieve.

Company Claims Their Flying Car Will Hit Markets In Two Years

company-claims-their-flying-car-will-hit-markets-in-two-years0

While “Back To The Future” may have been the trigger for many people’s dreams of owning a flying car, the idea has actually been floating around the minds of man since not long after cars became widely available at the beginning of the 20th century. Designs for such vehicles began appearing as early as 1923, albeit they weren’t predicted to hit the roads until the ‘70s. Henry Ford even warned that a hybrid airplane and car was coming back in 1940. And even though we have been teased over and over again with prototypes and promises (thank you Terrafugia for repeatedly getting our hopes up), flying cars are still not a reality for consumers.

But excitement was renewed once again last year when Slovakian company AeroMobil tantalized us with their prototype car/plane hybrid, the AeroMobil 3.0, which was unveiled at the Pioneers Festival in Vienna...

Power-Packed Longevity Fruit a Boon for Diabetics (and Health Enthusiasts Too)

Power-Packed Longevity Fruit a Boon for Diabetics (and Health Enthusiasts Too) - Luo Han Guo Ye - Monk Fruit

By Carolanne Wright

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

A fruit belonging to the gourd family is causing quite a stir among health conscious consumers as an all-natural sweetener that won’t aggravate diabetes or contribute to maladies like cancer, heart disease, obesity, candida or tooth decay. Many times sweeter than sugar, Luo Han Guo (Siraitia grosvernorii) only contains 2 calories per serving and will not elevate blood sugar levels. The secret to its sweetness is found in mogroside, a compound from the same glycoside family as stevia.

A humble melon, the fruit was reportedly eaten by monks in 13th century China and is frequently known by its common name: monk fruit. Considered a longevity superfood, local residents of the Guangxi Province in Southern China consume the fruit regularly and enjoy exceptional life spans.
