Small Victory in Indonesia as Rainforests Returned to Indigenous Control

Vic Bishop, Staff Writer
Waking Times

When government controls a resource, that resource will be sold to the highest corporate bidder and will be exploited at the expense of any plants, animals or people living in the area. The battle for stewardship of our forests is one of the most important questions of our time, and in Indonesia, home to a significant portion of the world’s remaining rainforests, control of a number of disputed areas was recently returned to the indigenous populations which inhabit them.

As European colonialism in the 1800’s overtook the thousands of sprawling islands which now make up Indonesia, Dutch state rule over the millions of acres of forests in the region was hotly disputed, even flatly rejected, by many of the native tribes in the region. Having been a region of intense conflict for generations, a recent move by Indonesia’s President Joko Widodo will end clashes over this matter by returning authority of some rainforest areas to indigenous people.

Pesticides are NOT Needed to Feed the World, Says New UN Report

Alex Pietrowski, Staff Writer
Waking Times

The argument for the extreme overuse of agrichemicals in global industrial farming is that supposedly without the advances made by Monsanto and other chemical giants, the world would starve. We need products like glyphosate, terminator seeds and genetically modified foods to feed so many people, they say, but this is really nothing more than a popular myth, pushed on the public as part of a marketing effort to convince people who thousands of years of organic agricultural history is outdated and inadequate for the times we live in today.

Awesome Invention Allows You To Bake Edible Spoons To Reduce Plastic Waste

by Amanda Froelich, True Activist

A neat invention allows one to bake a set of four flavored spoons in just three to four minutes.

Because it’s so easy to use single-waste plastic, such as cutlery, plates, and cups, one rarely thinks twice before tossing the materials into the trash. It’s because of this, however, that the world is becoming increasingly burdened by plastic pollution.

According to statistics compiled by The World Counts, humanity’s wasteful habits are already wreaking havoc on the environment. In the North Pacific Ocean, for example, there is 6x more plastic debris than plankton. Additionally, 90% of the trash that floats in the oceans is made up of plastic (equating to 46,000 pieces per square mile). As materials composed of plastic slowly break down, they release toxins into the environment. The trash is also oftentimes ingested by animals and in some cases, traps innocent creatures such as turtles and fish.

$2.5 Trillion Asset Manager Installs Statue of Fearless Girl In Front Of Wall Street Bull

by Amanda Froelich, True Activist

On the eve of International Women’s Day, an asset manager on Wall Street had a statue of a fearless girl installed to face the iconic bull statue already in place. The intention of doing so is to highlight a lack of gender diversity and equality in the workplace.

Created by artist Kristen Visbal, The Fearless Girl statue has drawn hoards of attention for a beneficial purpose. According to a statement released by the State Street Global Advisors (SSGA), the statue is part of a call on more than 3,500 companies that benefit from clients’ investments to ensure that their governing boards are diverse. Ron O’Hanley of SSGA commented:

China Is Building The World’s First Migratory ‘Bird Airport’

by Amanda Froelich, True Activist

The avian airport will offer sanctuary to the more than 50 million birds who journey along the East Asian-Australian Flyway each year.

While most modern architecture encroaches on wildlife habitats, the world’s first migratory ‘bird airport’ – to be built in Lingang, China – will do the exact opposite. Designed by McGregor Coxall, the wetland bird airport is to be constructed where a landfill is presently situated and will offer sanctuary to more than 50 million birds each year as they journey from the Antarctic along the East Asian-Australian Flyway (EAAF).

Reportedly, 1 in 5 globally endangered waterbirds presently uses the EAAF, and coastal urbanization continues to make the route increasingly dangerous. It’s for this reason that the Port of Tianjin sent out a call for international designers to design a wetland sanctuary for the migration birds. McGregor Coxall was one of many architecture firms who responded.

Daily Message ~ Wednesday March 8, 2017

As you consistently respond to yourself from a place of love and compassion, you automatically start to heal old wounds and reassure your way back into wholeness. It is showing up for yourself as your own loving guide, parent, and best friend. It is moving beyond abandonment into secure attachment and security.

When you start to love and nurture yourself, this will not mean that you do not need others. Far from it! It means that you will release others from the thought that they are responsible for your emotional state, which will allow you to show up for others from a space of giving rather than taking, honour rather than neediness, love rather than blame. This shift supports acceptance and unconditional love, ease and beingness with each other, and connection from a space of authenticity which is what you truly crave from each other.

Once you start to assume responsibility for self, this does not mean that you will not help another in need. Enlightening human beings are kind, tender-hearted and compassionate beings. You will, of course, assist each other if it is required, but the shift will be that it is done in a way that is empowering for all involved, which allows every single being to start to connect to their own divine capability.

8 Ways The Global Elite Manipulate Our Perception of Reality

by Kalee Brown, Collective Evolution

We are all free-thinkers. We hold the ability to form our own opinions, daydream, overthink, critically think, and even conjure up tales of adventure and loss using our creative minds. Our minds are separate from the Self, so even though the mind is essentially an illusion, it can be thought to represent a portion of our individuality.

Have you ever thought about how much of your thoughts are truly and authentically your own? The fact of the matter is that we are subject to propaganda, false advertising, and other methods of manipulating our thoughts and perceptions every day. For a long time, the elite have used different tools to influence our thoughts and actions, a tactic often referred to as frequency control.

Here are 8 ways the elite manipulate our perception of reality:

Growing Into…

How long have you been sitting in the light and cursing the darkness that may or may not exist in your reality? How often have you placed blame on circumstances and experiences in which you have put so much of your energy because doing so made/makes you feel ‘safe’ and ‘in control’ of your environment? How many times have you chosen to stay in your victim mode because it is easier than looking toward something brighter, different and better?
My darling, my love, my child; the time of change is upon you. Whether you remain static, stationary and stubborn (smiling – ‘one of my favorite human attributes’) or stand up, leap into and explore the light around you will always be your choice! The excuses you create to ‘sit this one out’ will, very shortly, no longer be a valid reason for denying the reason you are here…to grow into and become Love. ~ Creator

GFP Newsletter - 3/7/2017

I am not against sex. To me sex is as sacred as everything in life.

There is nothing profane, nothing sacred.

Life is one - all divisions are false.

And sex is the very center of life. So you have to understand what has been happening down the centuries. The moment you repress sex, your energy starts finding new ways to express itself.

-Rajneesh

Daily Message ~ Tuesday March 7, 2017

You have had much contrast in the energies of late. While most of you understand the shifting, releasing, and integration process that is happening, you may not be aware of another purpose of such intense and differing energies. They teach you how to move with whatever the energies are supporting at any given time. This allows you to practice the new, more efficient way of navigating your path, which consists of riding the energetic waves and creating with grace and ease through flow.

During times of intensity, the energies insist upon certain things. The fatigue will be so strong that you can't help but lie down. You may feel so activated that you can't help but move around. You will be drawn to certain foods, to activities that soothe the soul. You will simply need to honour the phase you are in because nothing else will suffice.

This is a great teaching tool. It allows you to truly see how pushing against times that require rest is futile, and also how riding a wave of forward moving energy allows you to accomplish far more in a shorter amount of time. It shifts you out of the old paradigm of pushing through and doing something no matter what, into the new, wiser approach of waiting for the right energetic wave and then harnessing that universal energy to serve you and what you desire to achieve.

Living on the Beach of Life

God said:

You favor the concept of more and more. You live this concept of more and more. There is something you can't quite put your finger on, yet you crave it. More wealth, more food, more stimulation, more sedatives, more and more "something", and yet nothing seems to satisfy. Whatever this more and more you crave may be, you don't have enough of it. Something is missing -- something you are meant to have and you don’t see that you do.

You know you don't want to slough off on Life. You don't want to be idle in Life. Perhaps it is a High Purpose that you are missing. You don’t exactly want to drift from day to day. Oh, you might wish to be at the beach every day, basking in the Sun, yet you don't even live near the ocean, or you may even drive by it every day on your way to work where you feel cooped up.

It's possible that your Life on Earth is simply a search, yet what you are searching for, you don’t quite know. No one knows, yet you keep seeking.

As you desire more and more, even as you don’t know what it is, you are seeking it. What you crave could be more of Me, more closeness with Me, yet you may find yourself stuck, unable to establish yourself in more of Me. You wish, yet you perhaps feel that your pocket of God has a hole in it. No matter how you wish and how you try, you are not aware of More of Me. Unwittingly, you just haven't had the deep pleasure of Me. You would if you could.

BREAKING: Wikileaks Releases "Largest Ever Publication Of Confidential CIA Documents"

by Whitney Webb, True Activist

WikiLeaks has published more than 8,000 CIA documents as part of "Vault 7", a series of leaks on the agency originating from the CIA's Center For Cyber Intelligence in Langley, VA.

After hinting for months about its forthcoming releases, Wikileaks has once again delivered, publishing its first batch of leaks on the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency. The leaks, code-named “Vault 7”, is – according to Wikileaks – the largest ever publication of confidential documents on the agency, with just this first release comprising 8,761 documents. The documents are said to have originated from within the CIA’s Center for Cyber Intelligence located in Langley, Virginia.

The first “Vault 7” release focuses on the CIA’s “global covert hacking program” which includes its “weaponized exploits” of common technology products such as “Apple’s iPhone, Google’s Android and Microsoft’s Windows and even Samsung TVs, which are turned into covert microphones.” It has also been revealed that the CIA has the capability to bypass the encryption on applications such as WhatsApp, Signal, Telegram, Wiebo, Confide, and Cloackman by hacking the phones on which the applications are installed and collecting its message traffic before encryption is applied.

Ikea’s Hydroponic System Allows You To Grow Vegetables All Year Round Without A Garden - TruthTheory

By Jess Murray Truth Theory

Ikea’s indoor garden system is the perfect option for those who wish to grow their own food all year round but don’t have the garden space to be able to do it.  Ikea’s indoor hydroponic garden allows anyone to grow fresh produce at home without the need for soil or any previous gardening experience.

The hydroponic system of the garden means that adequate light and water are everything that is needed to grow the plants successfully, meaning that there is no need for soil. According to the report, many of the vegetables that are widely available today are grown using this method. The absorbent foam plugs that come with the Ikea system enable the seeds to sprout, and then proceed to keep the seeds moist without over-watering them. Following the germination of the seeds, all that needs to be done is to transfer the entire foam plug into its own separate small pot and fill it with pumice stones, which can retain a lot of water.

Monsanto Has Lost $11 Million As Indian Cotton Farmers Begin To Use Indigenous Seed

by Jessica Murray, True Activist

After illegally pushing a form of Bt cotton into India and Africa over 10 years ago, agrochemical company Monsanto is now losing millions of dollars due to farmers now planting their own indigenous seed. In the past, Monsanto has been accused of writing laws and breaking them in order to enter the Indian market. However, the company has now begun paying heavily for their misdeeds, following more than 300,000 farmer deaths between 1995 and 2013, many of which were attributed to Monsanto. Farmer suicides throughout Maharashtra, which is considered to be the ‘Cotton Belt’ in India, have also been linked to the greed of the corporation, according to reports.
