Laughter is the Best Medicine

Hilarious work by Pete Vincent of Raw Humour.

'Laughter is the best medicine' because it is the release of tension as we are jolted (often by some collision of concepts) out of limited left brain reality into the wider expanses of the right hemisphere, not only a happier but healthier place to be because the right hemisphere runs the body better.  Sorry to be so clinical.

if you change something....something changes

Paul Jackson give an overview of the scenario described in Tony Wright's
book Left in the Dark...thanks Paul!

..the book is amazing, truly when you understand the implications. The basics are simple - we developed in the rain forest our brain expanded rapidly as the trees and flowering plants fed us an amazing variation of high octane fruit (in competition with each other) to get us to spread their seeds. the human brain expanded rapidly and then stopped dead. something happened, the forest was gone, food was gone. (garden of eden) so we were out of the forest, and had to eat anything to just survive. not what our brain needed any more but a subsistance diet. all this happened about 200,000 years ago.


so the story so far is we're eating glorified bird seed, animals, and god knows what to survive. 
basic engineering is "if you change something....something changes" and everything changed, our environment, and chemicals that our structure and brain is built from and then fueled by.  There is a feedback loop here as generations pass - it gets worse over time.  Even minute amounts of chemicals will effect how our brain works, functions and our perception as we know. (think about LSD, ecstacy, and of course the pharmacutical business is based on this). 

When you bear in mind the idea that small amounts of chemical changes will affect us, the idea that a shopping trolley full of stuff being ingested has no effect on us becomes ludicrously untenable.  And remember the human brain is the most complex thing we actually know of in the universe and is acutely susceptable to minute changes in its environment. Like a really finely tuned car but infinately more complex.

for reasons explained in the book..... the left hemishere has come off worse. it has gone crazy (schizophrenic) it is dominant and it is in charge. our perception is governed by what it allows us to percieve (what comes to consciousness).
it lies to us and we don't even know it.

The right hemishere is connected to all reality. The left hemisphere is disconnected from every thing. the left hemisphere is as far as we are concerned who we think we are. because of this disconnection, madness, schizophrenia, it is afraid of everything. it builds the world in its own image and society becomes ever more schizophrenic, controlling and violent and fragmented...from personal relationships to war, know the rest.

The people worse effected are attracted to schizophrenic jobs and positions of power and they make the job, organisation and our world more mad, in their own image - go to church on sunday bomb brothers and sisters on monday. no problem?????

Ancient texts, bible etc have been telling us of this for a long, long time.

Natural skin care

Totnes being what it is, I wandered into our largest health food store, Greenlife, today to buy a cucumber and found an old acquaintance, a lovely local mother, demonstrating the wares of her new company, Gentle Green.  It's  skin cream made completely with pure,vibrant, natural and very potent ingredients.  I tried some - it smelt and felt wonderful.

I personally use only fresh home-grown aloe vera gel on my skin - the other skin nourishment comes from my food, copious amounts of fresh water, the sun, the rain and fresh air from vast amounts of walking. However, I know people with  stubborn skin conditions, such as eczema, rosacea and psoriasis, need some extra help and this cream is getting excellent results with these conditions.

As 60% of what we put on our skins is absorbed internally, we should only put on our skin things which are fit to eat. (I like to think that the aloe vera is getting into me this way because it has important nutritional properties).  And this cream passes this test.  All the ingredients are carefully sourced from small scale growers, as locally as possible.

You can obtain the cream from the website
where selected suppliers are also listed.

Conscious Convergence

A Wave of Unity July 17-18, 2010:

Creating the intention for the unity consciousness
of the Ninth Wave of the Mayan calendar!

Main article points:

    * The Mayan calendar is about you.

    * According to the ancient Maya the creation of the universe is effected by nine waves.

    * We are now approaching the end of the eighth wave and, on top of this, the activation of the ninth and highest level that will cap off the evolution of the universe.

    * This ninth level of the universe is designed to generate unity consciousness.

    * The manifestation of the unity consciousness brought by the ninth level will require an intention on the part of the human beings to co-create this.

    * The Conscious Convergence, July 17-18, 2010, is for those that are willing to set the intention to create unity consciousness in the ninth wave of the Mayan calendar system.

Creating the intention for the unity consciousness
of the Ninth Wave of the Mayan calendar!

In recent years there has been a radically increased interest in the Mayan calendar and especially its end and so many ask what this tells us about the future. Surprisingly, many people ask this question as if the answer had nothing to do with themselves or the choices they make. Few seem to have considered that the fulfillment of the cosmic plan will require of them to step up to the role of co-creators with this divine plan. This is not to say that human beings can just create anything they want at any point in time. The waves of consciousness brought by the Mayan calendar still defines the framework of our existence and what we may or may not be able to create in any given era. Yet, only the creativity that is consistent with a new wave will be favored and this will again be evident as we enter the ninth, and highest, wave of the Mayan calendar system. It is thus pertinent to ask what consciousness the ninth wave will create and what it will require of us to be able to step up to becoming co-creators with this wave.

To address this we need to consult the ancient Maya and look at their only inscription, which describes the meaning of the end of their calendar, the Tortuguero Monument 6. This says that at that point in time the nine-step entity, Bolon Yookte, (Fig 1) will “descend.”* What this means in a more straight language is that a combination of nine cosmic forces, nine wave movements, will simultaneously manifest fully. In this ancient Mayan way of looking at the meaning of the end of the calendar there is thus nothing that speaks of an end to the world. Rather, what the end of the calendar system is all about is a completion, or fulfillment, of evolutionary processes that have been going on from the beginning of time and led the world to what it is today.

From what we may understand of the Mayan calendar the unity consciousness will set an end to all forms of dominance of one human over another and especially those generated by the left brain. What this likely will mean is that instruments of dominance, such as the current financial system, weapons, national borders and many other structures upholding authority in this process will come to crumble as an effect of this unity consciousness coming into existence and so conclude with the birth of a new world where a divine harmony characterize the human relations. This end to dominance will also affect the relationship between the genders on a global scale that as a result will profoundly shift. Needless to say, there will never be any return to business as usual. Instead we will need to approach the birth of the new world consciously and with an intention of co-creating it in a positive sense and not just react to the various difficulties that lie ahead. I believe that such a collective intention of co-creating the new world will be the best way of easing the consequences of these difficulties.


*(Cheyenne Prayer)

The following is the Shared Intent provided by Mayan Grand Elder, Don Alejandro. Note that it is important to FEEL the words as they are spoken, in order for them to have any effect. Whether you're alone, or in a group, allow your consciousness to expand and remember those with whom you are united around the world.

I, as a sovereign being, join together with All That Is to call forth the presence of balance and unity within me and in our world. I am the conscious presence of harmony and reconciliation and I am grateful for the wholeness I bring forth in this and every moment. -- Grand Elder Don Alejandro Cirilo Perez Oxlaj, "Wandering Wolf”

Clinical Kinesiology

by Paul Morton

Every symptom be it physical, emotional, mental or spiritual is simply a display of the forces in your content or inner.

Address the causative factors in content and the display is automatically resolved.

As humans we get stuck, entangled or ensnared by our feelings and emotions, by our beliefs and mental constructs and also by our ancestral patterns.

This therapy will liberate you, lift up your vision and change your state. Essentially it places you in control of the lower life forces within you.

The result of this is a permanent change of state taking you one step closer to a more dynamic life in rhythm with your essence.

How it can help?
All symptoms or life problems can be resolved at the inner or causative level of existence. Once we label, understand and shift our perceptual and feeling states in respect to any dysfunction then it must change, it is natural law.

Paul Morton practises clinical kinesiology from Totnes, Devon.
