SandraWalterAs a prerequisite to this article, please review my definition of AscensionYou cannot be pressured into Ascension, because it must be a personal choice to raise one’s consciousness. Wayshowers set an example, provide intel, teach, and walk hand-in-hand, heart-to-heart with those dedicated to the Shift in Consciousness. Sometimes we run ahead so we can tell people what is down the road, or what is on the other side of an unopened door. Continue reading

ZeroHedge – It Begins: Ukraine Army Given Power To Use Weapons On Civilians – Live Feed – 19 February 2014

ZeroHedgeJust as we warned earlier, the stealing of the weapons cache and labeling of the break-away region as having undertaken “terrorist acts” has led to the military getting involved:

Laura Bruno – ANH – Monsanto “Goes Organic” And Wins “Sustainability Award” – Right! – 19 February 2014

laura-of-the-rocksThanks for taking that 1984 Doublespeak just a bit too far! The following article has accomplished what months of my own warnings and alarm soundings have failed to do: convinced some locals that “sustainability” does not always mean what they assume it means. We need to peek “Behind the Green Mask,” and write our own definitions and protections, lest our “Sustainable City” and “Responsible Regionalism” usher in an entire fleet of Trojan Horses.
