Don’t Grope Me, Bro!

I support Ron Paul’s recent legislation to stop the TSA from taking draconian measures to treat all boarding passengers as criminals, including body scanners using health-damaging radiation and, if you opt-out of those body scans, a full-body groping.  This is absurd.  To show my support, I’ll be making T-shirts with the following logo I designed, itself a parody of the TSA logo.  This is a rough draft, but shows the long, groping arm of the government accosting the symbol of our nation, the bald eagle, and featuring an upside-down flag symbolizing our nation in peril!

Don't Grope Me, Bro!

 

On the backside:

Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects,

against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated,

and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause,

supported by Oath or affirmation,

and particularly describing the place to be searched,

and the persons or things to be seized.

.

Yes, the Fourth Amendment applies directly to the actions of government.  Yes, TSA is a government agency.  It doesn’t matter if the search is done on private property – such as in airports.  It is being done by a government agency without due process.

The Controlling Frequency of Fear

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

(This post is a rework and repost of a blog of the same title from October 2008)

.

Energy is a vibration, and the Universe has an unlimited supply.

One of the fundamental laws of physics is the conservation of energy: energy is neither created or destroyed. It does change forms all of the time, however.

Energy is something that each and every one of us has, and our bodies carry out some of the most complex changes of energy observable anywhere in the world.   While we may consciously observe some of these changes – as in digestion, respiration and exercise – most are relatively unaware of the vibrations and complex changes that thoughts and beliefs make.  The vibrations of our thoughts ripple through the universe  in all directions, like a stone tossed in the middle of a lake,  and the magnetism of our beliefs draws upon the unlimited reserves of energy that the Universe has at its disposal.    This is the process of creation, and every one of us is here to learn the lesson of responsible co-creation.

Our thoughts and beliefs can generate and attract certain frequencies, some of which are beneficial for our body and state of mind, while others are damaging, limiting, restricting and poisonous.   Thoughts and beliefs are energy.   Our bodies are an extension of thought and maintain a vibration all their own,  and yet  are in constant relation to the whole universe.  Like a single instrument in an orchestra,  our thoughts and actions are small movements within a larger body of vibrations.

In an ideal state of optimum health, the body’s overall frequency (understood as a personal energy or vibration) is clear and more “in tune” or in harmony with the Universe of energy, or Spirit.  This resonant harmony operates like a magnetic field, and until something comes along to disrupt that magnetic field, the frequency remains clear and unwavering.   In this state, one experiences health, vitality, energy, happiness, and openness.

On the contrary, a chaotic or diseased mind is one that is not in harmony with the Universe, and the body is suffering from a dissonance. Like a sour note stands out in a choir singing in perfect harmony, the mind that is not in tune with the Universe suffers the clashing vibration. This vibration, like an energy field surrounding the body, resonates through every cell, which begin to vibrate at that frequency as well.   The higher, clear frequency is overcome by the lumbering waves of discord – the cells vibrating with negative belief.  Over time, this can lead to physical ailments, mental disorders, mood swings and disease.

The only way that human beings direct energy is through thought, and through the underlying beliefs and belief-structures formed from those thoughts.   Thoughts occur in our minds, not as apparitions that appear from nowhere and disappear again the next moment in to the ether, but as real, rock-solid choices.   Thoughts are chosen – accepted as true or untrue by our minds.

The thoughts we accept lead to larger structures of thought called belief.  These larger structures of belief are more rigid representations of the original thought and, in turn, give rise to future thoughts, which most often seek to validate the belief and the original thought.  In this way, our thoughts reveal a lot about the mental structures we have created in our mind.  Every thought that we do not challenge becomes an accepted belief.  These may clash with other thoughts we have, or they may compliment and enhance them.

Thought directs emotion, not the other way around; and emotion, like thought, is a vibration.

Each emotion has its own corresponding frequency, which is beyond the scope of this article.   For now, let us consider the frequency of love vs. the frequency of fear.  I choose these because they are mutually exclusive.   Imagine thoughts of love as a single, high-pitched and unwaveringly clear sound.  This is the sound of creation – Being Itself.   Our thoughts of love, acceptance, openness, empathy, unity, forgiveness – all harmonic variations of the one clear sound of Life – keep our body and our mind “in tune” with the universe.

On the other hand, emotions such as fear are like deep, long, lumbering and wavering sounds, which clash with dissonance with every falter.  These vibrations do not meld with the vibration of Life.  This dissonance causes disruptions at many levels and the body and mind suffer the consequences.    A mind in this state may think this dissonance is desirable or unavoidable and create belief structures based upon this thought.  In this way, the mind conditions itself to vibrate with the dissonance and reinforces the “reality” of chaos and fear.

Expectations are formed from reinforced thoughts and beliefs. Our thoughts have a “magnetic propensity” to attract events, persons and situations that fit with those thoughts. Thoughts of fear and death always attract fearful experiences to validate the thoughts that called for them. That is the nature of creation – a fundamental precept that most of us have been taught to ignore or be fearful of. The vibration of fear is both instinctual for the preservation of one’s life and a source of limitation. It has been used against us to enslave our minds.  This is because fear represents uncertainty and discord.

Our thoughts create our perception and experience.

I take certain biblical passages to mean just that: “Ask and you shall receive.” and “As you sow, so shall you reap.” and “Ye shall know them by their fruits.”

Our thoughts direct energy to create a frequency and that frequency, like a magnet, attracts universal frequencies that resonate with that frequency. Thoughts always seek to be self-validating. Watch your mind to see how this works. “I’m sick of x” or “I’m tired of y” can eventually manifest in sickness and fatigue. It is what you are telling your body to react to – frequencies to seek out and resonate with -what your mind wants.  It is the reality your mind seeks.

As my father told me, “Your mind is attracted to what you think, and what you expect to see you draw out of the universe.” He told me of an instance when he wanted to put a walkway in his yard and thought that distressed bricks would be a good material to use. As he was driving with my sister along a stretch of road they have driven down a thousand times before, they started talking about the walkway and where they might find distressed bricks.

He went on to explain that, along that drive, she and he were suddenly inundated by all sorts of distressed bricks that appeared in certain spots next to the road. “THAT would be a perfect brick to use,” each exclaimed as another one “stuck out” in their perceptions. The bricks were there all of the time, no doubt, but it wasn’t until they were thinking about a need for those bricks that their minds were open to the perception of those bricks.   At the level of their experience, the bricks were not there until they were called forth from the universe.  This is the true of all thoughts we choose and the experiences we have.

Our thoughts create our perception and experience. We have been taught to be distrustful of the mind, however, and of our thoughts. This has been by design and has been perpetuated through society by the elite of this world who understand the power of thought and the nature of the mind. In fact, most of us have been through a long period of mind-programming since we were born to separate our mind from itself so that it does not know or experience this truth.

We are taught what to think, how to think, what to do, who to go with, what to expect, what not to expect, what to dream for, what to avoid, how to be “good” Christians or patriots or children, how to be law-abiding citizens, and not to be critical of things going on in the world. In effect, our own creative abilities have been short-circuited by society, religion, schools, media, government, parents – you name it.   Yet when we realize that our thoughts go out like feelers to pull out of the universe what we expect, then we are suddenly empowered and our thoughts are seen as alive.   We then realize that our fears were mistaken and mis-given.  They serve to short-circuit experience, creativity and thought.

Part Two

Fear is increasing in the world.  The preceding statement is both a thought I have and a thought that mankind shares.   Much of the fear in the world lives under the shadow of deceit, ignorance and guilt.  There are a lot of things to be fearful of: cancer, the economy, war, terrorism – you name it. All of these are being manipulated, controlled and amplified to produce a global, mass reaction and a global frequency of fear. Our pastors, our teachers, our politicians, the talking heads of corporate media, and Hollywood all teach us to be fearful and reinforce the global frequency of fear, which effectively locks the planet up like a prison.

The frequency of fear keeps us fixated upon the most basic, fundamental levels of survival and unable to understand deeper areas of ourselves, our psyches and the influences of this world, as well as our own creative source and the inextinguishable part of ourselves that exists quite apart from the perceptions we choose.

Politics and world news are full of things to be fearful of, and those things that cause the most fear generate the reaction those in power want. According to the Hegelian dialectic of problem-reaction-solution, they manipulate events to create a problem, which generates fear and a need from the public for a solution. So they step forward with the solution they had in mind from the beginning and the fearful masses are willing to accept the solution to get rid of the fear.  This happens everyday in our society, and more and more, our society is becoming closed.

In my opinion, September 11th, 2001 is one such psychological attack on the minds of the world. Look at the media coverage, the references to the event from politicians, the ensuing Global War on Terror, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the curtailing of liberties … all of this – problem-reaction-solution – and a huge stage for a performance of shock and awe, fear and death. And all of this amplified by the little box nearly every American has in their living room.

It has been proven that television is a great mind-control mechanism. While the person is watching in a trance, they are actually using less energy than when sitting doing nothing at all. Likewise, their brainwaves are slowed down to the level of hypnotic suggestion, combined with the flashing lights and images to keep you “tuned in.” That is why Time Warner Cable’s logo is the hypnotic eye.  You are being manipulated – your thoughts and beliefs hijacked – for the sake of control and capitalism.

Brainwashing Made Easy

No one wants to feel fear, yet it is there to keep each of us safe from danger. The elite, however, have learned to manipulate that to their advantage. With global media corporations in place, controlled and operated BY the elite, they can amplify that fear quite easily. Turn on the news, open a newspaper and you’ll see exactly what I mean. Fear sells! Think of how much fear has done to our country over the past several decades, beginning with the Federal Reserve’s engineered depression in the 1930’s. Then Pearl Harbor, then the Korean War, then the Vietnam War and the Cold War, then the war on drugs, OKC bombing, September 11th and global terrorism. It’s a big business, controlling your mind.

If you are caught in a frequency of fear, you can be easily led towards whatever solution is offered up to end that fear. Your innate power as Spirit is turned into an instrument of power for them, as you give away your power to feel safe – with their protection. In fact, they’ve got all sorts of solutions:

.

Afraid of crime? Hire more police and build more prisons.

Afraid of unemployment? Work harder.

Afraid of AIDS? Don’t have sex.

Afraid of immigrants? Keep them out.

Afraid of foreigners? Bomb the hell out of them.

Afraid of terrorism? Restrict civil liberties.

Afraid of chaos? Support the status quo.

Afraid of failure? Don’t take chances.

Afraid of being alone? Conform.

Afraid of going to hell? Obey the Church.
.

Obey. That is the name of the game of control. And controlled you are if you do not recognize how innately powerful, creative and safe you really are. This life is not all you are, but it is everything you’ve been taught to believe. Who taught you? What is the source of this “knowledge”?  Under all of our thoughts and beliefs is the Source of thinking itself.

Ultimately, all fear is fear of death – and death is the ultimate form of control. Images of death abound in today’s society, glorified by Hollywood and taken to extreme and grotesque levels, saturating our news and intruding upon our lives through measures of control to prevent our untimely death. Think about it.

The Politics of Fear utilized by the White House and certain members of Congress is an attempt to control you, plain and simple. Real and engineered events will occur to validate that fear and keep its frequency strong. Buildings collapse, bombs explode and “terrorists” are being watched for everywhere you go. In fact, you may be held in suspect. You should be fearful of your neighbors, too – they might be the next militant jihadist. Terrorism, political and economic, is the name of the game for the elite right now, as they can use it to instill fear, get the masses to conform, and exercise an increasing amount of control, coercion and restrictions upon freedom.

Fear is maintained through lies and deceit and I’ve had all I can take, especially from our government. There are few among us who do not believe that politicians are liars, yet we believe them when fear is involved. That is why, on the path for the search for Truth, we must, of necessity, come face to face with our thoughts, beliefs and fears. Before we can resonate with the Truth, all of the dissonant beliefs must be seen for what they are in the light of day and discarded. The illusions must be exchanged for the truth.  Our fears must be dispelled before we see how ultimately safe we are.

That is the process of waking up.

Are you “awake”?

EPA to Eliminate Regulation of Neurotoxin in Drinking Water

Nothing is more plentiful in the world, nor more vital for our existence than water. Water is essential for all functions within the body, but especially for transferring nutrients and eliminating wastes. When drinking water is contaminated, the body is especially vulnerable to accumulated toxins, so it makes sense to have the cleanest drinking water obtainable for optimum health. In my opinion, the decision by the EPA and the Bush Administration to exempt the ubiquitous neurotoxin, perchlorate, from federal regulation and oversight is a step in the wrong direction. Just like earlier decisions to fluoridate public drinking water, putting a known toxin IN the water, this decision just stinks. For those of you who are not familiar with perchlorate or its associated health effects, it is worth your time to check out the information at ewg.org.

Perchlorate is a common additive in rocket fuel, which has known neurotoxic effects on humans.

Feds Set to Eliminate Water Regulations for Neurotoxin

Wired, Brandon Keim
Published December 3, 2008

Among the Bush administration’s final environmental legacies will be a decision to exempt perchlorate, a known neurotoxin found at unsafe levels in the drinking water of millions of Americans, from federal regulation.

The ruling, proposed by the Environmental Protection Agency in October, was supposed to be formalized on Monday. That deadline passed, but the agency expects to announce its decision by the year’s end, before president-elect Barack Obama takes office. It could take years to reverse.

Critics accuse the EPA of ignoring expert advice and basing their decision on an abstract model of perchlorate exposure, rather than existing human data.

“We know that breast milk is widely contaminated with perchlorate, and we know that young children are especially vulnerable. We have really good human data. So why are they putting a model front-and-center?” said Anila Jacobs at the nonprofit Environmental Working Group. “And they used a model that hasn’t yet gone through the peer-review process.”

The ruling is one of dozens planned for the final days of the Bush administration. Others include a relaxing of air pollution standards for aging power plants, and a reduction of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s traditional role in evaluating the impact of federal projects on endangered species.

These have received more attention than the status of perchlorate, a chemical found mostly in jet rocket fuel and detected in 35 states and 153 water public water systems. It is known to lower thyroid hormone levels in women; it poses a particular threat to pregnant women and breast-feeding children, whose long-term neurological development can be stunted by youthful hormone imbalances.

As many as 40 million Americans may now be exposed to unsafe levels of perchlorate, and the EPA’s own analysis puts the number at 16 million. The most comprehensive human exposure study, which measured unexpectedly high perchlorate levels and correlated them with thyroid hormone drops, was concluded by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2007.

Environmental health advocates saw the study as supporting tightened restrictions on perchlorate levels in drinking water — something the EPA had been loathe to do under the Bush administration. The study was not considered in the anticipated ruling, which could effectively end federal monitoring of perchlorate in drinking water.

“If you used the human studies from the CDC, then you would be forced to regulate it, because we know there are health effects at current levels of exposure,” said Jacobs.

Benjamin Blount, co-author of the CDC’s study, would not comment on the EPA’s decision, but said that infants — who consume, proportional to their body weight, about six times more water than adults — “are thought to have a higher dose than at any other life stage.”

The EPA declined to comment on why they used a model rather than the CDC’s data in deciding that regulating perchlorate would not provide “a meaningful opportunity for health risk reduction for persons served by public water systems.”

In a November letter to EPA administrator Stephen Johnson, the EPA’s own Science Advisory Board questioned the model. “Its soundness will not be publicly vetted,” they wrote. Only one of two peer reviews invited by the agency has been received, and that was announced only today on the EPA’s website.

“The Science Advisory Board believes that more time is needed for the decision process and for scientific input,” said Joan Rose, a Michigan State University water researcher and chair of the Board’s Drinking Water Committee.

Even Michael Dourson, a researcher at the nonprofit Toxicology Excellence for Risk Assessment project who accepts the EPA’s model, doesn’t understand why the EPA favored it over human studies.

“The data is on pregnant women and babies, and these studies are quite powerful,” he said. “If they could spend more time to make their decision, I’d recommend looking at it.”

According to EPA spokeswoman Enesta Jones, the agency expects to announce a decision “by the end of the year.” There is little reason to think the ruling will change from its current form.

“This administration has been adamant about not regulating perchlorate,” said Mae Wu, an attorney at the nonprofit Natural Resources Defense Council.

If the rulings go through, Congress may still take action. California congresswomen Barbara Boxer and Hilda Solis, both Democrats, have each drafted legislation that would force the EPA to regulate perchlorate, though it could take years to go into effect.

States still have the option of regulating perchlorate on their own — but this is not easy, said Charles DeSaillan, New Mexico’s assistant attorney general for natural resources.

“We have fairly limited resources. Historically we’ve relied on the federal drinking water standards, and adopted those,” he said. “In order for us to adopt our own, we’d have to do all the science, all of the research, hire the experts, and go through a regulatory process which would be opposed by the Department of Defense and Department of Energy.”

New Mexico is home to several prominent military testing facilities, and has the highest average perchlorate exposures in the country.

“It’d be long and difficult. Eventually we may do it. But it’s easier for us to rely on the EPA. This is their job. And in the case of perchlorate, they don’t seem to be doing it,” said DeSaillan.
