Open Letter From A Chronic Pain Sufferer

As Oro’s spouse I watch as he wages war everyday with his chronic pain. There is nothing like the feeling of helplessness when you know you cannot ease the pain of the person you love.

This article is copied in its entirety with links to the original site I discovered this post on. I didn’t write this but it is amazing to me how much it mirrors what I have been wanting to say for a long time.

Having chronic pain means many things change, and a lot of the changes are invisible.

Unlike having cancer or being hurt in an accident, most people do not understand chronic pain and its effects, and of those that think they know, many are actually misinformed.

In the spirit of informing those who wish to understand: These are the things that I would like you to understand about me before you judge me.

  • Please understand that being sick doesn’t mean I’m not still a human being. I have to spend most of my day in considerable pain and exhaustion, and if you visit, sometimes I probably don’t seem…

The Individual vs. the Staged Collective

The Individual vs. the Staged Collective

by Jon Rappoport

July 9, 2017

Trumpets blare. In the night sky, spotlights roam. A great confusion of smoke and dust and fog, and emerging banners, carrying the single message:

WE.

The great meltdown of all consciousness into a glob of utopian simplicity…

There are denizens among us.

They present themselves as the Normals.

Beyond all political objectives, there is a simple fact: those group-mind addicts who have given up their souls will rage against the faintest appearance of one who tries to keep his. And in this rage, the soulless ones will try to pull the other down to where they live.

And somehow, it all looks normal and proper and rational.

In the 1950s, before television had numbed minds and turned them into jelly, there was a growing sense of: the Individual versus the Corporate State.

Something needed to be done. People…

Maps of consciousness as a form of mind control

Outside the Reality Machine

Maps of consciousness as a form of mind control

By Jon Rappoport

Let’s start here.  There are maybe five people on the planet, if that, who genuinely want to contemplate existence and DO NOTHING ELSE.

Everyone else WANTS TO DO SOMETHING.

Since civilization dawned on Earth, various teachers and groups have been making maps about consciousness and how it works and operates.  A thousand groups and a million teachers, and they all have some kind of map of consciousness that supposedly yields up crucial insight.

Let’s cut to the chase.  If a person is using one of those maps and finds it helps him DO WHAT HE TRULY WANTS TO DO in his life, GOOD.

Good, assuming he isn’t kidding himself about what he really wants to do.

If he uses a map to sit around and do very little, and he isn’t one of those five people I mentioned…

Independence Day … a Few Facts

Oro Cas Reflects

Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence?

Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before they died.

Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned. Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army; another had two sons captured.

Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War.

They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor.

What kind of men were they?

Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists. Eleven were merchants, nine were farmers and large plantation owners; men of means, well educated. But they signed the of Independence knowing full well that the penalty would be death if they were captured.

Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader, saw his ships swept from the seas by the British Navy. He sold his home and properties…

A Shared Spiritual Origin in Celtic Europe and Indo-Aryan India?

If you work from the teaching that all things originated in Egypt …

Metal Gaia

The-Peshwa-copy

DISCLAIMER: METAL-GAIA DOES NOT SUPPORT RACIST IDEAS, SUCH AS WHAT WAS FOUND IN NAZI GERMANY. THIS IS A DISCUSSION OF INDIA, EUROPE AND WEST ASIA’S SPIRITUAL PAST. FOR METAL-GAIA’S THOUGHTS ON RACISM, REFER TO PAGANISM AND RACISM.


The word Aryan immediately has many controversial connotations. Merely speaking the word “Aryan” in most Western countries will conjure the image of Nazis and a flaxen haired, blue eyed people from the north. Yet the reality is that the Aryans (if they did exist as a singular people) were most likely from West Asia, not Northern Europe, and that Aryans were a Hindu topic for thousands of years before the Nazis came along.

The reason why people associate Hindu spiritual concepts like the Swastika and Aryans with the Nazis is because the Nazis appropriated many historical Hindu concepts. Even the swastika that is now famous as a Nazi symbol, was historically a Hindu symbol of well being…

October Apples

Oro Cas Reflects

 Prologue

It was easy to tell when it was time to start preparing for the annual Apple Butter making ritual. The leaves would start to show a hint of color as the nights got cooler. Soon the first hard freeze would bring out Autumn in all it’s colorful beauty. Labor Day weekend was a distant memory as the calendar stated it was time to prepare for Halloween. The second week of October was usually unseasonably warm during the day with cold nights which was perfect weather to put the finishing touches on the apple orchards and their bounty.

I grew up in a family that believed in things like planting a big garden every year so there would be plenty of food to be preserved by either freezing or canning. There was also hunting to be done during this time of year for rabbits, squirrels, wild turkey, and deer. The…

Law of Polarity ~ Amy Brucker

By Amy Brucker

LawOfPolaritySymbolicMeaning4

Have you ever had a desire for something, like an income or career breakthrough, but instead of moving forward you ended up feeling stuck in a never ending loop?

And no matter what you did, you couldn’t make the shift, so you lost hope and gave up?

If so, I have something fun to share with you.

It’s called the Law of Polarity.

This is one of many universal laws that were inspired by simple observations of nature, and it just happens to be my favorite.

I discovered the Law of Polarity years ago when I was struggling financially and desperate to figure out why. I was doing everything imaginable to create a successful business, but nothing helped.

Desperate to figure out why, I did a shamanic journey to uncover the source of my stuckness, and every time I did a journey, I got the same response:

I’d see an aerial view of myself standing in a field looking at a wasteland of dry, broken earth, but directly behind me, so close my feet were touching it, was a beautiful, lush green field.

Clearly, I was being shown that I was simply focused in the wrong direction.

How the Law of Polarity Can Help You Move Forward

The Law of Polarity shows us that everything that is whole is comprised of polar opposites and shades of grey in between.

The Equinox is a great example. It’s a 24-hour period during which we have half light and half dark, and it perfectly illustrates that we cannot experience one without the other.

You can’t have light without dark.

Or day without night.

Good without bad.

Up without down.

Sickness without health.

Problem without solution.

And the ultimate reason I love the Law of Polarity…

You can’t have an unexpressed desire without expressed desire.

You can’t have a want without having a possible fulfillment of that want.

In other words, if you are poor and you desire wealth, your poverty is the unexpressed or unmanifested version of money. Using the Law of Polarity, we can deduce that there has to be a manifested version of your desire as well, which is wealth. Money is comprised of poverty and wealth, and everything in between, at the same time. Which means that money exists and therefore, there is a way for you to cultivate more money, because wealth exists.

However…

The Law of Polarity Doesn’t Guarantee HOW Your Desire Will Show Up

To use another example, if you want to have a baby, but no longer have a uterus, it will be darn near impossible for you to give birth naturally. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have a baby. There are many alternative options. You can adopt, have someone else carry a baby for you, become a foster parent. Or you can become a daycare provider.

In the Law of Polarity, the “how” is not guaranteed, but when you have a desire for something, there is always a way to fulfill that desire. It just might not look like how you imagined. (So don’t be attached to *how* it might work out.)

Moving Forward with the Law of Polarity

The reason I love the Law of Polarity so much is because I used to lose hope easily. If something I desired with all my heart–like making money doing what I loved to do–seemed like it wasn’t working out, I’d give up.

But after the shamanic journey in which I saw myself standing on the edge between deprivation and abundance, I realized that where I put my focus was directly related to what I was able to create in my life.

I had a habit of focusing on lack and so I was experiencing lack in my life. I saw lack everywhere I looked, and that’s what I experiences.

Yet all I had to do to turn my money situation around was to shift my perspective and see that money and opportunity were every where. Money didn’t suddenly fall from the sky, of course, but once I started focusing on wealth, I automatically started noticing things I hadn’t noticed before. I attracted the right business coach. I felt inspired. Hopeful. And my money situation changed dramatically, for the better, almost over night.

Your Turn

Reflect on your health, wealth, life, or love (relationships) and notice where you feel less than satisfied.

What did you give up on or say “no” to that caused you to feel this dissatisfaction?

How might you use the Law of Polarity to inspire you to move forward?

Now hold that vision in your mind and follow the leads as they show up. They will take you where you want to go. It may happen overnight. It may take years. But it will happen, I promise.

Sweet dreaming,

Amy

The Ankh

ankhrelief

The Ankh is one of the most well-known and widely used symbols of ancient Egypt. It is in their myths, hieroglyphs, texts and art. What is the Ankh symbolizing? Mainstream ideas are “life”, “breath of life”, or “death and resurrection”. As you will see, they are all way off base. The Ankh has to do with you, your higher self to be exact.

The Ankh is pure Egyptian. It is found in different civilizations, but only because they originated from Egypt. The Christians stole the symbol and used it for their cross. If you understand the true meaning of the christ, you will see why they stole the symbol. Who the hell would worship the symbol that killed their god or prophet? You don’t see Hindus worshipping an arrow. The arrow being what killed Krishna. Mohammed was killed by a wild boar and is the reason why muslims will not eat ham. So why do christians venerate the cross? Christianity is Egyptian and the cross is just a stylized Ankh. […]
