The Matrix of Time and How to Transcend It

RJ Spina, Contributor
Waking Times

Many people who have already begun to question the very nature of their reality will inevitably come to the persistent yet illusory experience we call time. What is time? How does it work? And why do we experience it in the way that we do?

Some are concerned that we are running out of ‘time’ both individually as well as collectively for our individual and planetary spiritual awakening. Some subscribe to the seemingly obvious notion that time is the enemy and the eventual death of all physical life. The unrelenting march of time traps us all in a downward spiral of entropy, decrepitude and eventual demise. This seems to be the current paradigm Humanity agrees to. And then there are those who simply desire to experience a better time, even for a moment, where chaos, confusion, greed, manipulation and a lack of awareness were not so pervasive.

Somewhere beyond all of this exits what truly is.

3 Proven Things Schools Can Do to Curb the ADHD Epidemic Without Prescribing Drugs to Kids

Alex Pietrowski, Staff Writer
Waking Times

We really just don’t know what the long-term, generational effects of such widespread use of ADHD medications will be on our society and the individuals who’ve been taking these meds their whole lives. There have never been long-term studies because the medications have not been around for very long, yet the FDA and Big Pharma are perfectly comfortable pushing these pills onto the public.

The truth is that they do not want people to be healthy and free of dependency on pharmaceuticals, they want customers and cash flow and don’t care if children as young as one year old are being put on these drugs.

3 Characteristics of a True Political Awakening

Sigmund Fraud, Staff Writer
Waking Times

History is written by the winners, or so they say, but there is an agreed upon version of our story that is taught to us in school and reinforced in everyday life by the media and government propagandists. Coasting through life haphazardly believing in this standardized version of reality is a form of consciousness, a contemporaryt way of relating to a world where the individual is consumed by the group, and truth becomes evermore out of reach.

The typical level of political awareness in our society is fairly basic, simplified and incomplete, but it serves as a functional trap for the mind and the imagination, pigeon-holing individuals into a conformist. This psychological trap preys upon two basic human traits: conservatism and progressivism. And because these traits are biologically hardwired into the human psyche, they are exploited as a fissure to create disharmony and division amongst the public.

Many people only rise to a level of political consciousness which allows them to understand their predisposition to one or the other of these traits. Awareness often ends here, with extreme devotion to one side of the publicized political spectrum.

Game-Changing Study: Epigenetic Memories are Passed Down 14 Successive Generations

GMI Reporter, Guest
Waking Times

The past of our ancestors lives on through us: Groundbreaking research illustrates how parental experience is not only epigenetically imprinted onto offspring, but onto an unprecedented number of future generations. Rather than occurring over the elongated time scale of millions of years, genetic change can transpire in real biological time through nanoparticles known as exosomes.

Until recently, it was believed that our genes dictate our destiny. That we are slated for the diseases that will ultimately beset us based upon the pre-wired indecipherable code written in stone in our genetic material. The burgeoning field of epigenetics, however, is overturning these tenets, and ushering in a school of thought where nurture, not nature, is seen to be the predominant influence when it comes to genetic expression and our freedom from or affliction by chronic disease.

Happy Holidays - California City Demands Church Stop Feeding the Homeless

Vic Bishop, Staff Writer
Waking Times

It’s tough to say when our societal values shifted so dramatically, but for some reason now, government at large has decided that charity for the homeless is a crime. In a society with such stunning abundance, efforts to feed the homeless are being met with legal challenges and even police action in America. This is a disturbing trend which has been gaining steam in recent years.

In the latest publicized event, authorities in California have demanded that the United Methodist Church in Malibu, CA stop its meager yet hope-giving program of offering hot meals to the city’s homeless. The church has been giving away only 100 meals a week, on Wednesdays, since 2014, which is a relatively small humanitarian contribution in a wave of homelessness which has descended on the West Coast since the housing crisis of 2008 and now spurred on by the excesses of the regions tech industry.

The Science Behind Kundalini Yoga

GMI Reporter, Guest
Waking Times

You’ve probably heard about the health benefits of yoga, but did you know there is an ancient practice called the “mother of all yogas” that can reverse symptoms of anxiety and stress in as little as three minutes? 

It has been estimated that as many as 2 billion people worldwide practice some form of yoga. Some are drawn to the gentle mode of exercise that yoga provides, seeking a more mindful way to work up a sweat. Others are drawn to yoga as part of a process of awakening, finding deep affirmation of the mind-body-spirit connection through their practice. A person may be introduced to a particular style of yoga through a friend, or through what’s available at their local yoga studio, and may never give any thought to the fact that yoga exists in many forms, with each style possessing significant differences in form and function.

Another Record Breaking Year for Opium Production in U.S. Occupied Afghanistan

Isaac Davis, Staff Writer
Waking Times

Now officially a national federal emergency, the opioid crisis is gutting America. The roots of this complex issue lie in supply, not demand, and while we are beginning to see major pharmaceutical executives being indicted for conspiracy and bribery of doctors, we have a long way to go to turn this thing around.

Pharmaceutical and synthetic opioids are a major part of the catastrophe, but the other side of the supply chain is actual opium, and the world’s biggest opium market just happens to be occupied Afghanistan, the epicenter of the global heroin trade. The United States military has been operating in Afghanistan as part of the war on terror for over 16 years now, and opium production in the war-torn nation continues to increase, year-over-year, coinciding with the rise of the opioid crisis.

HomeBiogas Device Turns Food Waste into Clean Cooking Fuel and Nutrient-Rich Fertilizer

Anna Hunt, Staff
Waking Times

Imagine being able to turn your food waste into clean cooking gas and nutrient-rich fertilizer, while at the same time reducing potent greenhouse gases. This was the exact vision of Israeli-based HomeBiogas, which resulted in the creation of an affordable consumer appliance that efficiently produces sustainable fuel out of kitchen scraps. In addition, the device creates a high-quality organic liquid fertilizer that can be used to nourish the plants in your garden.

Environmental Impact of HomeBiogas

Most people don’t realize that food waste is a significant problem. According to estimates, about 365 million pounds of food per day is wasted in the U.S. In other words, about 30 percent of food produced in the U.S. ends up in the landfill.
