A Path With Heart – The Christmas Message

(My apologies to Jack Kornfield for borrowing the title to his best selling book - A Path With Heart)

Christmas is a hard time for many people. It is often made harder because there is this pressure to be 'happy' coming at us 24/7, it seems. It's hard when many of us are grieving lost friends and lost hopes. Why do we get this pressure; this pressure to be happy? And where does it come from, anyway?

It is an odd kind of happy, isn't it? There doesn't seem to be any appeal to be kind to go along with it, as far as I can tell. It seems to be a 'happy' without a heart. And without any heart, how can there be any peace? And Peace is the Christmas Message, is it not. So I'm wondering, “what is going on”?

Ron Paul and Economic Theories (and other backwards thinking)

(This following post grew out of some questions and comments on a comment thread at APea's invaluable Twelfth Bough blog)

Many moons ago scientists thought the heavens revolved around the earth. They had fashioned theories and equations to verify this. But every now and then a planet would be observed to be moving backwards. How was this possible?

Explanations were put forward including epicycles whereby planets revolved around an imaginary centre point as they traversed the sky. Some of this involved very complicated maths to 'prove' how this was possible though no cause was ever explained. Of course, only educated/trained and intelligent people could follow these explanations. So the average person of average intelligence and average education had no way of credibly arguing with these 'scientists'.
But a critical foundation that these complex calculations were based on was wrong.

There was one crucial piece of information, one crucial assumption that was backwards. And that was that the heavens, including the planets, revolved around the earth. They did not, of course. Now with this piece of missing information, the average person today can see that all these complex calculations and theories and all the disputations that occurred between the scientists were meaningless nonsense. So it is with economists and their theories today. And similarly, we don't need to understand the complexities of their false arguments to understand how they are simply wrong.

There is a fundamental equation in economics and understanding it is crucial to seeing the nonsense that is peddled as economic management today. It is simple and well known to economists yet seemingly few economists have any idea of the truth and therefore the power that rests in this simple equation. It is the economic equivalent of Einstein's E=MC2.

It is this. P=MV

This Cancer Amongst Us

Another cure for cancer is being repressed and has been for decades. Surprised?

APea of Twelfth Bough had put up another excellent post on government sponsored bio-terrorism and the attempt to criminalise anyone who does any research and publishes it refuting their lies and exposing the truth. It is called BS labs and can be viewed here

At the foot of that article is a link to Burzynski The Movie - Cancer is Serious Business

From their website-

Burzynski, the Movie is the story of a medical doctor and Ph.D biochemist named Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski who won the largest, and possibly the most convoluted and intriguing legal battle against the Food & Drug Administration in American history.
His victorious battles with the United States government were centered around Dr. Burzynski's gene-targeted cancer medicines he discovered in the 1970's called Antineoplastons, which have currently completed Phase II FDA-supervised clinical trials in 2009 and could begin the final phase of FDA testing in 2011–barring the ability to raise the required $300 million to fund the final phase of FDA clinical trials.
When Antineoplastons are approved, it will mark the first time in history a single scientist, not a pharmaceutical company, will hold the exclusive patent and distribution rights on a paradigm-shifting medical breakthrough.
Antineoplastons are responsible for curing some of the most incurable forms of terminal cancer. Various cancer survivors are presented in the film who chose these medicines instead of surgery, chemotherapy or radiation - with full disclosure of medical records to support their diagnosis and recovery - as well as systematic (non-anecdotal) FDA-supervised clinical trial data comparing Antineoplastons to other available treatments—which is published within the peer-reviewed medical literature.
One form of cancer - diffuse, intrinsic, childhood brainstem glioma has never before been cured in any scientifically controlled clinical trial in the history of medicine. Antineoplastons hold the first cures in history - dozens of them.
This documentary takes the audience through the treacherous, yet victorious, 14-year journey both Dr. Burzynski and his patients have had to endure in order to obtain FDA-approved clinical trials of Antineoplastons.

Towards the end of the movie, the figure of 10 million is given as the number of American people who have died while the FDA has sought to keep this cure from the public. This is, of course, to protect the profits of the pharmaceutical companies who have shown throughout their sordid histories absolutely no compunction in causing deaths to make money.

"Burzynski The Movie - Cancer is Serious Business" is an extremely well put together movie and is a real eye-opener, as they say. Though it is 1hr 45mins long it is engaging all the way through. The first thirty minutes is taken up with personal stories of cures and heartache which make the following information about the FDA tactics all the more revealing and appalling at the same time.

The movie can be viewed at Amazon for a small fee and is well worth supporting.

Or it can be seen on youtube for free here

These Pharmaceutical companies and their captive organs, the FDA and governments around the world are a spiritual cancer in the body of humanity. Perhaps the cure would be for their senior management and board members to take their own medicine.

The Asylum. You're standing in it.

the corn maze - a guided walk

Don Smith left a really good comment on Winter's post on the 10th anniversary of the demolition of the three towers at the World Trade Center which can be read here.

Don started by saying-
"To even think about the possibility that the government,(George Washington, the cherry tree, Abe Lincoln, emancipation, the red white and blue, it's a grand old flag,etc), has set us up as suckers in a big con game is too painful to contemplate for most." read the rest here

It prompted me to enlarge on his insightful comment with my own thoughts on the subject.

The PTB know that if we make what we think is a free choice, we will defend it against all logic to the contrary. It is one of those nasty perversions of theirs where they use our human nature against us. Free will is foundational to us being human beings and we perceive this one way or another - usually intuitively. And because we think we are exercising free will in our choices, it is this free will that we think we are defending when we perceive we are being attacked for those choices from the people or the circumstances around us. Hence 'brand loyalty', 'party loyalty' and many other conditioned responses.

Lucifer the Light Bearer

This poem came to me thinking about Israel's infatuation with fire and death and our western govt's wholehearted support of that after reading at A. Peasant's Twelfth Bough and various articles and poems at Richard Edmondson's excellent Left Wing Christian.net.

the attraction of power


They hate us for our freedom
to light up their ever shrinking sky

For the unquenchable fire
that destroys their children as they cry.


the effects of power


They stare uncomprehending
at the dreadful loss for us

As our humanity is cremated
in the hail of white phosphorus


the truth of power
