CLN – The Real Consequences Of Corporatism, “Smart” Grid And Corrupt Government – 16 January 2014

consciouslifenewsOriginal article from : Josh del Sol | Activistpost | Jan 16th 2014

At the federal level, the illusion of representative government is now over. With a few exceptions, for-profit interests have colonized government systems that were originally intended to serve people.

The danger of allowing this virus to continue, of course, is that the casualty always eventually becomes life itself. Like any virus.

consciouslifenewsJoyce Walker | Commondreams | Jan 2nd 2013

For all I have gained as the result of my financial struggles, I consider myself blessed. You might wonder how I can say that, when, at the end of December, I’m still working with my winterizing kit, consisting of staple gun, duct tape, and cardboard, trying to insulate against the air leaks that drive my heating bill up. But because of my hardships, I have become more(Photo: posixeleni/ cc via flickr)sensitive to the hard times many around me are facing, and feel compelled to share what little I have.

consciouslifenewsAllgov | Dec 26th 2013

Food manufacturers who use genetically modified (GMO) ingredients want permission from the federal government to stamp their products with the word “natural.”

The Grocery Manufacturers Association has asked the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to approve their plan, which would mean any food containing GMO corn, sugar and other such ingredients could be sold as “natural.”

consciouslifenewsHayley Weatherburn, Contributor

It’s coming to those last couple of days before Christmas and for those who struggle with the concept of spending hundreds of dollars for material objects that are supposed to express how we feel for someone, it can be stressful.

CLN – The True Cost Of Following Your Bliss (2) – 27 November 2013

consciouslifenewsMarcus T Anthony, PhD, is Director of MindFutures. He refers to himself as a futurist, intuitive and life alignment coach. He is the author of Discover Your Soul Template and his website is www.marcustanthony.com.

Recently here on CLN I wrote of my own difficult experience in making my way in the world using spiritual principles. I am an educator, futurist, writer and speaker whose passion is for Deep Futures – futures where the technological and economic is more evenly balanced with the deeper spiritual aspects of human existence.

In that article I wrote of how, in the years after I begun my own spiritual journey, I had more than a decade of largely positive outcomes and experiences. But this was followed by several difficult years where I struggled, primarily at a professional level. During the “good” years I found work easily, almost effortlessly gained a PhD, successfully published books, academic papers and articles. Money flowed to me easily.

“It explains that many kinds of hallelujahs do exist, and all the perfect and broken hallelujahs have equal value.” Continue reading
