The Four Key Elements of True Love, According To Thich Nhat Hanh, A Vietnamese Buddhist Monk

by Arjun Walia, Collective Evolution

You must love in such a way that the person you love feels free.”

– Thich Nhat Hanh

What is love? What is ‘true’ love? Can it even be defined? Today, our ideas about love are largely defined by fairytales, movies, and television shows, and its definition continues to change. But we all have certain conditions attached to our idea of what love is, or some sort of criteria drawn up for what our ‘perfect match’ would look like. The right partner is required to have certain things, be a certain way, and like certain activities — and that’s okay.

New Moon In Scorpio: Deep Feelings And Making Adjustments

by Carmen Di Luccio, Collective Evolution

There will be a New Moon in Scorpio on November 18 at 11:42am Universal Time. This marks a new wave of energy influencing the upcoming lunar month, yet the astrological configurations at this time will be the strongest over the following two weeks leading up to the Full Moon on December 3.

We have been in Scorpio season since October 23. Although we will be going into Sagittarius season on November 21, Scorpio themes will still be active throughout this Lunar month due to this New Moon and other planets travelling through this sign. As mentioned in previous articles, Jupiter will be travelling through this sign for a year, which can help bring out more of its positive aspects.

Keystone Pipeline Leaks 210,000 Gallons of Oil In South Dakota: This is Why We Stood With Standing Rock

by Arjun Walia, Collective Evolution

Keystone XL, the tar sands pipeline that connects Alberta, Canada, to Gulf Coast refineries and carries nearly 1 million barrels of tar sands oil per day across the U.S. to be refined, exported, and burned, has just leaked 210,000 gallons of oil in South Dakota.

This comes after a massive protest gathered thousands upon thousands of people, including CE team members, in North Dakota, near the lands of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, to oppose the pipeline. Peaceful protestors and water protectors were threatened and physically abused by a militarized police force working for the corporation.

It was truly an unbelievable sight. The pipeline threatens a water supply upon which many people depend. Yet officials have said, according to the Guardian, they “do not believe the leak in TransCanada Corp’s pipeline . . . affected drinking water.”

An Infographic That Shows The Healing Power of Cat Purrs

by Alanna Ketler, Collective Evolution

Cats have been human companions for at least 4,000 years. Worshipped as gods in ancient Egypt, it’s easy to see how they developed a reputation for arrogance. It’s not that cats are entitled, it’s that they do what they want, when they want, and where they want it — okay, so maybe they are a little entitled. As cat owners, we do what we can to cater to their needs, ensuring they have food and water, plenty of love, and a clean box to poop in. But what makes a cat worth all this effort?

Someone who dislikes cats or simply doesn’t understand their appeal might question why anyone would give so much to a creature who doesn’t even greet them at the door, but this relationship between cats and humans isn’t all take and no give; our kitty companions give us something in return, and it’s more than just head rubs, cuddles, and cute little meows (though that’s payment enough for most cat lovers). In addition to these signs of affection, they actually emit a healing frequency when they purr.

That’s right, those little jerks are healers, too.

Report Sheds Light On How Many People Die From Overdosing On Marijuana

by Joe Martino, Collective Evolution

Marijuana legalization has been the talk of North America for years now. It’s arguable that one of the biggest campaign promises made by Canada’s new Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, was his goal to legalize cannabis countrywide. In the US, cannabis is legal in some form in 23 states, and with that we see a staggering number we should all consider. The number of Americans who fatally overdosed on cannabis in 2015 was: 0.

No one. Not a single person.

This of course is a huge increase from the year before which was also, zero. So it begs the questions: why is marijuana illegal? And why are other substances like alcohol and pharmaceuticals legal, yet they actively contribute to killing people in large numbers?

Why Harvard Medical School Has One Of The Largest Energy Medicine Research Programs

by Arjun Walia, Collective Evolution

Below is a clip from an interview we recently conducted with Dr. Natalie Leigh Trent, a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Harvard Medical School and Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, where she investigates the mind-body practices of yoga and mindfulness for health and wellbeing. She obtained her Bachelor of Science from the University of Toronto in 2006 and her Doctorate in neuroscience from Queen’s University in 2012.

In this part of the interview, we discuss the ancient healing art of Reiki, a healing modality that has been practiced and taught around the world for thousands of years. As Dr. Trent shares in the interview, it’s a relatively new field of science and medicine that’s continually growing, with approximately 80 studies that’ve been published so far.

With scientific research now emerging attesting to the ability of human thoughts, emotions, and intentions to affect the physical material world, an increasing number of scientists, and quantum physicists in particular, are stressing the importance of studying factors associated with consciousness and its relation to our physical world. One of these factors is human intention.

50 Facts The World Needs To Know About Mainstream Media’s Relationship With The US Government

by Arjun Walia, Collective Evolution

James F. Tracy is a PhD from the University of Iowa. A former professor of communications at Boca Raton, Florida Atlantic University. He is one of many critical thinkers within the world of academia, and as result of presenting the following information that might spark some cognitive dissonance, he has been singled out due to his activism efforts.

For example, he was fired from his tenured professorship at Florida Atlantic University for questioning official narratives of terror events. Now, his Blog has been taken down by WordPress with no clear explanation.

You can listen to what he has to say on the matter here.

You can support the James Tracy Legal Defense Fund, and find out about what is going on with him at the moment HERE. He made national headlines, as many academics who are not afraid to stand up for truth do, in an attempt to ridicule them.

There’s An Organ In Your Brain Which Seats Your Soul: Meet Your Pineal Gland

by Jeffrey Roberts, Collective Evolution

“The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light…”
Matthew 6:22-23

Situated at the anatomical center of our brain lies a mysterious gland that may be the intermediary gate that bridges our physical and spiritual experiences here on Earth. Seventeenth-Century French philosopher Rene Descartes coined this organ, called the pineal gland, as the “seat of the soul”, as he believed it provided people with a medium from which our soul could be expressed through our physicality. The pineal gland has been a topic of great debate over the past couple of decades as the science community is still trying to discover its complete biological function. Dr. Rick Strassman, M.D., author of DMT: The Spirit Molecule, has dedicated years of research to the pineal gland as he suggests that this gland is the factory for a powerful brain chemical called DMT (Di-Methyl Tryptamine) which when produced induces a person into a psychedelic and mystical experience.  Many different cultures talk about our “third eye,” and modern theories suggest that this may be a reference to the pineal. Even more peculiar is the fact that pineal gland symbology can be traced to many civilizations such as the Romans, Mexicans, Egyptians, Babylonians and the Greeks. It is interesting to note that even the Catholic Church displays pineal gland imagery, as the Vatican Square contains the largest pineal-like statue in the world. So what could all of this mean? Is there ancient knowledge of this gland that previous cultures had access to? Furthermore, what role does the pineal gland play in our spiritual experiences and how can we explain this in physiological terms?

Transparent Solar Panels Like This Could Harvest Energy From Windows & Replace Fossil Fuels

by Alanna Ketler, Collective Evolution

Have you ever thought of how great it would be if all windows were able to conduct solar electricity? Well that fantasy might soon become reality, as a new transparent solar cell technology has been designed to harness the endless solar potential of building and car windows — even cell phones, and any other object with a transparent surface, for that matter.

I wrote about this technology a couple of years ago when it was still in its infancy, but now, scientists at Michigan State University have detailed in a paper published in the journal Nature Energy that these highly transparent solar panels could “nearly meet U.S. electricity demand” in just a few years and therefore reduce our reliance on fossil fuels.

Corey Feldman Releases Another Video On Hollywood Child Sex Rings Just Days After His Arrest

by Arjun Walia, Collective Evolution

Corey Feldman has been exposing what many believe to be the number one problem in Hollywood today, and that’s child pedophilia sex rings. He’s not the only one who’s been doing so, as many powerful figures have been implicated in this behaviour by actors of all ages and genders. From military and political elite to Hollywood executives, it’s a serious issue that needs more attention.
