Lucas – A Poem – The Quest – 20 August 2014

Logo Lucas_square_wordsSearching for the hidden word that acknowledges your view.
Looking for all answers in a methodical strange inconsistent way.
Feeling the one answer is still not given.
It is not out there but in reach and so near.

An investigation for truth is finding perceptions.
View the differences that make up the whole.
Energetics leave the answer in a sea of peace.
Opening up in tears as within Eureka is found.

The new developing is timeless balance.
The heart of the one is found beating within.
Connection to the field of all is the knowing.
Questions become pointless.

The quest is over.

Much Love and Light,

Lucas

Laura Bruno – The Sunflower Saga, Synchronicity And The NAP – 20 August 2014

laura-of-the-rocksIn a life of extreme synchronicity, prophetic dreams and generally inexplicable things, the following series of events comes in very close to the top of strangeness. To those few of you who’ve heard part of the sunflower saga as it relates to my ticket to the North American Permaculture Convergence, I can only say, “But wait! There’s more.” I hadn’t planned to share this in public, but the entire situation has become so odd and so illustrative that I feel called to do so. Warning: this will be a mighty long and mighty weird post. 🙂 Continue reading

UK Lobbying To Keep One Of Europe’s Dirtiest Power Plants Open For Business – 20 August 2014

RT logoThe British government is currently lobbying the European Commission (EC) for a legal exemption to keep a south-Wales power station open, despite the fact its nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions exceed EU legal limits by 500 percent.

Concerns about Aberthaw Power Station’s emission levels have been compounded by an alliance of NGOs’ recent criticism of the company being one of Europe’s highest carbon-emitting plants. Both Carbon monoxide and NOx are known to cause lung disease and respiratory failures.

In October 2013, a report by the European Environment Agency (EEA) found that more than 90 percent of people living in European cities breathe dangerously noxious air. Against a backdrop of mounting concern that the continents’ air pollution levels require stringent action, the EC has initiated infraction proceedings against the British government.
