 - The hype about Ayahuasca caught on quick with many people from around the world flocking to the Amazon seeking the amazing benefits of an Ayahuasca ceremony.

Yes, the trip you have leads to very interesting experience but there is more to it than a high full of exciting visions. This substance takes you to a completely different dimension and changes you on an energetic and spiritual level. While it can create a life changing experience, you may want to understand exactly what you are getting yourself into.

This is a powerful plant that must be understood on an energetic, chemical and spiritual level. The same goes for other psychedelic drugs. Regardless of what drug you take, it shifts the strength of the body’s aura. The changes that occur result in doorways — energy portals to a person’s energy or aura. By opening these doorways, the person in some way relinquishes control or power over themselves making it easier for them to come in contact with lower vibrational energies.

 - In the busyness of our contemporary life we are drawn into ceaseless activity that often separates us from the deeper dimension of our self. With our smart phones and computer screens we often remain caught on the surface of our lives, amidst the noise and chatter that continually distract us, that stop us from being rooted in our true nature. Unaware, we are drowned deeper and deeper in a culture of soulless materialism.

At this time I find it more and more important to have outer activities that can connect us to what is more natural and help us live in relationship to the deep root of our being, and in an awareness of the moment which alone can give real meaning to our everyday existence. Over the years I have developed a number of simple practices that bring together action and a quality of mindfulness, or deepening awareness, that can nourish our lives in hidden ways. These activities, like mindful walking, cooking with love and attention, can reconnect us with the web of life, our natural interconnection with life in its beauty and wonder. They can help us “declutter” our outer life and instead become rooted in what is simple and real. One of these practices, which combines action with mindfulness, is cleaning.

 - Of the many concerns surrounding the dominance of agrichemicals companies and GMO foods, the most frightening dimension is that corporate manufactured seed is wiping out global biodiversity in food crops and creating a punitive legal framework for our total dependence on these companies for food.

Monsanto, Syngenta and other majors in agribusiness are presently colonizing Africa with the help of international aid programs which force nations into agreements requiring dependence on patented seeds, thereby prohibiting traditional seed exchanges.

Reporting on the situation in Tanzania, Ebe Daems of Mondiaal Nieuws informs us of recent legislation which puts local farmers under the threat of heavy fines of up to €205,300 and even prison terms of up to 12 years for violating the intellectual property rights of agrichemicals companies if individuals sell or trade in non-patented seed.

 - Boyan Slat was just a regular Dutch high-school student when he went on a diving trip to Greece. Once underwater, he was surrounded by plastic waste. “There were more plastic bags than fish,” he told MNN a few years back. “That was the moment I realized it was a huge issue and that environmental issues are really the biggest problems my generation will face.”

Like many of us, Slat had heard about various giant garbage patches the world over, and he figured that someone, somewhere, was working to solve it. During his research after the Greece trip, he learned that there were a few cleanup ideas out there, but most of them relied on using nets to filter the plastic out of the water. Those nets also scooped up a lot of fish, turtles and other sea life, and weren't practical. So he worked on developing his own solution.

"I finally decided to put both university and my social life on hold to focus all my time on developing this idea. I wasn’t sure if it would succeed, but considering the scale of the problem I thought it was important to at least try,” said Slat.

Our Universe Thrives As An Integrated Whole. Why Should Our Food Be Any Different? - We live in a universe — a reality — that is made up of circles within circles; interconnected, interdependent, and whole. Sages have been saying this for thousands of years, and in recent times scientists in an array of disciplines — from physicists to demographers — have come to this same conclusion. You may be wondering what this has to do with nutrition and your health. In one word: Everything.

If our world is so entwined and interdependent, why is this not readily apparent to most people? We have the distinct misfortune of living according to the Westernized paradigm wherein marketing rules the mind and heart. And the marketers include not only Wall Street ad agencies, but also leaders in the fields of religion, education, politics, medicine, psychology, and even natural healthcare This marketing, relentless and ubiquitous, has shaped the thoughts of people to the point wherein they think in terms of fragmentation instead of holism. Everything has been divided up into smaller groups, specialties, special interests, pieces, and isolated entities that exist out of context.

 - Addiction is a result of the environment directly around us. Many people are born into chaotic environments that they cannot control, and as a way to escape, numb pain and cope with life, they create dependencies on external things. Without the right kind of support, people can lose themselves in their pain. 

In this modern world, the idea of addiction is a lot more common place than we think. So many of us are addicted to the internet, facebook, media and different forms of distraction. When this can be used productively and positively, then it doesn’t become a dependency or an escape. That is the balance we are trying to achieve.

Humans are meant to live naturally in interconnect and supportive communities around the world. It doesn’t take a scientist to see that our world is greatly unbalanced, chaotic and demanding. Addiction is a result of our society, and how we collectively understand human consciousness. With the right kind of environment and support, addiction can be easily overcome.

 - Kanyini is best expressed in English as the combination of the two words ‘Responsibility’ and ‘Unconditional Love’, but it is actually a relationship; it is an enormous caring with no limit – it has no timeframe: it is eternal. – Uncle Bob Randall

In our modern times, we are faced with the greatest challenges in human history. Never before has our conscious evolution been so required. There is growing consensus that we need to change and learn to work together for the solutions to address these challenges.

We know in our hearts that technology is not the sole solution. Somehow, we understand that a much deeper shift is needed, and sometimes we can feel this as an aching pain in our hearts and sorrow in our minds. Many of us do not feel whole and it may seem difficult to even experience a sense of peace in a world that demands us to constantly divide and be fragmented.

 - Sources in China are reporting that the government of Yulin will prohibit restaurants, street vendors, and market traders from selling dog meat at the city’s now-infamous festival this year.

The ban is set to come into effect on June 15—one week prior to the start of the event on the summer solstice. It’s meant to be strictly enforced, with hefty fines and the risk of arrest for violations. However, the ban is only temporary, and many dogs and cats will still be killed before the ban goes into effect.

You can help make the ban permanent. Please thank Mr. Mo Gong Ming for taking a major step toward stopping the cruelty at Yulin, and ask him to end the slaughter once and for all.

karimic-tools-144 - 6/4 ~ Sun (core essential Self) ~square~ Neptune (illusions & delusions): This activation can cause self-doubt, self-delusion and an overall confusion that seems to be sourced within or self-directed. It's only temporary, this is just the Universe's way of slowing you down so you can see where your goals may have been unrealistic or based on flights of fancy...

 - Are you one of those whose truly seeking, truly searching for the deeper meaning of the moment to ignite your life? Plenty say they are, but then the Path Less Traveled is littered with people who fell by the wayside, those who took the soft, comfortable option of staying where they are, in that safe, predictable space. But if you’re reading this, then for sure at the heart of you, is a burning light, that although may get stuck in a lay-by from time to time, is yearning to return to the highway, to be a constant flaming brilliance, all the time, as a way of living.

So what does it really mean to be walking this “Path Less Traveled?” How might you be inspired to continue, when all around often seem conforming and conservative?

Yes, in the spiritual mainstream, you’ll hear plenty about surrender and letting go. But how often is that used as an excuse for non committal? For giving up at the first hurdle: “Oh it’s not meant to be.” Says who? Did you check all the signs, or just the convenient ones?
