Bad Sleep is Becoming an Epidemic: 1-in-3 are Victim of a Racing Mind

November 27, 2012 2 comments

“The bad sleep epidemic: Forget insomnia, are you a victim of ‘semi-somnia’? Triggered by stress and computer use, this low-quality sleep is wrecking millions of lives…” Full article here: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2238401/The-bad-sleep-epidemic-Forget-insomnia-victim-semi-somnia-Triggered-stress-use-low-quality-sleep-wrecking-millions-lives-.html#ixzz2DO5mVNKc

Looks like more and more people are suffering from poor sleep, where one might wake up several times in the night or just generally have only a light sleep throughout the night without every going into a deep sleep, and waking up feeling unrested. According to the above article, one-in-three Britons are suffering from these sleep problems. That’s a lot.

The reason for this interrupted or light sleep is that it’s because our minds are racing with information that keeps us up and keeps us from getting a good night’s rest. What’s interesting about this is what it shows us about our relationship to/with our mind. That we are essentially existing as victims to our minds, as our minds are racing and not letting us sleep properly, and we can’t apparently simply stop our mind from racing so that we can sleep effectively. How is it that we don’t even question the fact that we have so little directive control of our minds, yet our minds practically drive who we are in each and every moment. How is it that we’ve become so separated from that mechanism which we essentially allow to make all our decisions for us, and determine how we experience ourselves from one moment to the next, that things have gotten so out of hand that now our minds run amok to the point that our physical body and thus our daily living is compromised? And this sleep issue, is just one case where our separation from our minds is ruining our lives.

It’s actually taken completely for granted that we really have no power/say when it comes to the mind, as that’s how we’ve existed for so long, in this relationship of a victim of the mind, not able to actually direct the mind, basically at its whim, and like one of the suggestions in the article, is to take time to ‘allow the mind to wander’, as if this is really as far as we can go in working with the mind to come to some sort of solution, hopefully.

‘Too much exposure to electronics’ is pointed to as the cause, that there is so much information coming into our minds, in this age of electronics, that it’s like an information overload. And yet, what’s missed in this? How do we not have any say in how our mind handles information? And what is not looked at/investigated is what is our actual participation in our mind, while we go about our day, whether it’s while working, while using electronic devices, or laying in our bed getting ready to go to sleep. In the article there’s the suggestion to have a ‘black out’ time where you literally turn of all your electronic devices at a certain time of night and don’t turn them back on until morning. Yet this is rather limiting, what if we could use electronics non-stop all day and have no problem? We’re quick to find physical things that are the reason/excuse/justification for what we experience, yet usually fail to consider our own participation, and what we are actually creating ourselves. What hasn’t been considered is our mind-participation that is going on, meaning, what is taking place in our minds as thoughts, feelings, emotions, reactions, toward that which we face in each moment of our daily living. What kind of experiences are we experiencing within ourselves as a result of our participation in the mind? And is any of that necessary or beneficial to us? Or is it getting in the way of living, as this epidemic of sleep issues indicates?

What this shows is that it is really time for us to get to know ourselves as our minds, so that we can establish self-direction and self-will to no longer be subject to the mind, that is compromising our daily living and ability to function in reality, before it gets any worse, as the longer we wait, the more ‘out of hand’ it gets, as this ‘sleep epidemic’ shows.

For an in-depth look at how the Mind functions/operates listen to the Quantum Mind Interview Series on Eqafe starting with Step 1: Quantum Mind Self Awareness – STEP 1

At Desteni, we’ve been investigating the mind for many years to get to know how it operates, and have designed courses – the Desteni I Process Pro & the New Free DIP Lite course – for the purpose of walking an individual through a personal process of getting to know one’s own mind – in order to be able to direct oneself and one’s mind, and so one’s life/living, to no longer be a victim of one’s mind.

For perspectives and to ask questions and get answers from those who have been walking the process of getting to know/understand the mind for years now visit the Desteni Forum.

For fascinating perspectives on why it is we can’t sleep with a racing mind when our body is tired, and our relationship to the mind and our physical human body, listen to this interview also available on Eqafe: My Mind won’t Let me SLEEP – Life Review.

Members of Parliament spend £1.4m on Exotic Trips while Millions can’t afford a Dignified Life

October 30, 2012 2 comments

“How MPs’ foreign junkets have cost taxpayers £1.4m: Accounts show bill for ten trips topped £40,000 each” – Full article: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2224541/How-MPs-foreign-junkets-cost-taxpayers-1-4m-Accounts-trips-topped-40-000-each.html#ixzz2AlDu01lE

So here we have some members of Parliament taking some very expensive trips, racking up a total of nearly £1.4million. Quite an obvious example of the corruption taking place within the current system, which we are allowing. I mean, when we’ve got most of the world’s population who can’t afford to have a dignified life, and then individuals who are spending millions on trips, there is an obvious disparity there. We all have agreed on the current money system, whether we realize it or not, because we’re busy participating in it, and our participation in it and acceptance of it is our agreement to it. It is like some sick joke we’re playing on ourselves, by allowing a few to horde most of the money in the world, while this directly means that others are going to go without.

I mean, we know this, we know there is corruption and greed, and that a very small few have way more than they could possibly ever use in a hundred lifetimes, while thousands are busy starving every day. And there is no possible justification for this. No matter how ‘philanthropic’ one might try to be, by donating to charities for example, that is not real caring, because real caring would be to make sure that all has enough from the very moment they enter into this world, til the moment they depart. But they won’t do that because they want to hold on to their money which is their ticket to an extravagant lifestyle, even if it means that billions suffer, because they haven’t realized that we can All actually live like Millionaires.

In an Equal Money System, this is the foundation principle, that all are equally supported and none are left out, within the realization that You would Not want to be the One Left Out. And within this, ensuring that All live a life of the Utmost Quality. Where everything that’s produced is of the best quality, because there is no actual reason to create anything of lesser quality. I mean, that is abuse. It’s massive abuse that we cause and do to ourselves.

In the case of these MP’s taking expensive trips to exotic places on ‘inquiries’ – will these ‘inquiries’ lead to creating a world that is best for all? Is it money well spent? No, because no one is calling for an actual change to the current money system. In a world with the technology and ability of internet communication is it necessary to go take a trip somewhere to have a discussion? It’s not. In the Equal Money System, we’ll utilize our technology in the interest of all life. See, there’s nothing wrong about enjoying traveling to places, it’s that it’s not cool to be taking exotic trips around the world that cost millions, when we haven’t first sorted out the suffering that we’re allowing, and make sure that we aren’t massively screwing billions of beings, not to mention the very environment we depend upon to live and to have these nice places to vacation to. That’s just pure evil. So, first we sort out this world that we’ve created by sorting out our economic system, and implanting one that actually supports everyone, as the Equal Money System, and then we can all have fun for real.

When we actually take real care of our world/environment, everywhere will be a nice place, and you won’t have to travel to go to someplace nice, though one might still like to travel and visit/learn about/explore different places in the world. But it won’t be about allowing most of the world to be disregarded, so that there’s just a few nice spots here and there. We should be taking care of everywhere. And government jobs should not be about taking vacations to those places, but should be actual administration of facilitating the distribution of resources to all of humanity and ensuring effective care of our world/environment, as it’s our home and we depend on it to live. Visit the Equal Money website and wiki to learn more about the Equal Money System and to see the foundational policies that lay out the blueprint for a system that actually supports life, through taking responsibility to sort out the mess we’ve created here and transforming our economic system from one that feeds on life, to one that cares for life in all ways.

Inches away from being America’s Fukushima: Nuclear plant dangerously close to being engulfed by Missouri floods

July 3, 2011 2 comments

“A nuclear plant was inches away from being engulfed by the bloated Missouri River after several levees in the area failed to hold back its surging waters, raising fears it could become America’s Fukushima.” Full article here.

Isn’t is rather disturbing when we can come so close to what would be a truly horrific disaster, with tons and tons of suffering, and yet life for the most part, just seems to continue on as if nothing is happening?

If this nuclear power plant were to flood, the repurcussions of this would effect everyone, not just the local people, just like the Fukushima disaster has had world-wide effects. We live in a closed-system where nothing is actually separate.

For the most part, it seems as though, most of us think this is ‘not my problem’ or that there’s ‘nothing I can do about it anyway’ – it’s just something you hear about on the news, and hope that it gets taken care of, by whoever is supposed to be taking care of such things.

For the most part, none of us even question that we even find ourselves in such a position – don’t even question how such a situation has even come to be. I mean, when we look at even just the most basic factors involved- a nuclear power plant built along a river – or even just a nuclear power plant, regardless where it’s built is insane enough considering the risks which we are fully aware of due to events such as Chernobyl and the catastrophic damage to life that has caused, the extensive cases of a whole variety of monstrous health defects, children born with all kinds of abnormalities, a bloated hospital system desparately trying to, and simply not able to, provide the needed care to all those suffering from that cataclysmic event still to this day.

Faced with the reality of the risks involved of which we’re well aware, why would we even consider to continue using nuclear energy? Well, actually there are many who are not aware. It is not something you see much in the news or learn about in school. And for the most part, our perception of what’s going on in the world, and what is important, is dependent on how and what is presented to us as important — we don’t seem to be able to determine for ourselves what matters — after all, we are generally taught and raised by our parents to believe that only ‘professionals’ or ‘authority figures’ can actually know, see, understand, and thus tell us what is important and what is not. We are not allowed to develop a ability to see for ourselves what is actually important.

Well, that is not entirely true — we are taught to see some things as ‘important’, because it was realized that if you can control what the individual sees as important, you can take advantage of that. Just look at some of the things that’s taught as ‘important’, like for example, ‘entertainment’ is taught as something that is an important and necessary part of one’s life, to make up for and to help one cope with the extensive amount of labor one must do to ‘make a living’ within the current system, and this ‘entertainment’ is even quite specifically defined into specific types of entertainment, all which are linked to a specific consumer market- i.e. movies, video games, alcohol, sports, etc. You’ll notice that, forms of entertainment that do not make money are not advertised. So, through this selective advertising, the human is trained to seek only some forms of entertainment — those which make money — and to ignore everything else.

This way, the human’s attention is ‘channeled’ onto these specific points of seeking entertainment, keeping the human occupied and distracted from what’s going on in the world that’s actually important. Like when power plant is inches away from becoming generations and generations of physical maladies like tumors and brain damage and various forms of real physical suffering.

The human is also taught there is nothing they can do it about- only the ‘professionals’ know what to do and can do anything about it, apparently. This is just another ‘trick’ to keep humans from actually doing anything — as long as they think there is nothing they can do, they won’t be able to do anything. All the various institutions that are currently responsible for disseminating information to the ‘public’, such as the television new stations, news radio, schools and universities, etc.– are businesses within and dependent on the current money system, thus they support the current system, and as such are not going to share information that would ‘threaten’ the current system. They are not going to share with the public how the system operates so that the public could actually be participants in the creation and operation of the system- because if that were the case, most people would not choose to allow the system to continue the way it is now.

Most people would rather not live in a world where so much suffering is allowed to go on, every day, every second. Where children are subjected to needless horrific tortures. Where we must spend the majority of our lives slaving away at some irrelevant job that only serves to make someone rich at the expense of the well-being of life- like nuclear power plants.

This is why at Desteni, we are standing up from within this current system, to say that there is another way, and to expose the massive deception that’s taking place and has been for some time — to show that we do not have to accept the system as it is, and that we can live in and create a world where none have to suffer– we are debunking all the lies and misconceptions that’s been propagated so that we’ll accept the current system as it is, despite it’s deleterious affects on ourselves and our world. Desteni is humanity coming together to say ’till here no further’ will we accept and allow such atrocities to be committed, which only lead to more and more suffering. We are standing up and taking self responsibility to create a new system in which life will be supported, where all will ‘profit’ from our labors — not only a few as in the current system, while the rest toil and suffer the consequences of such an abusive system.

If you are ready to stand up for a world where we can actually Live as who we are, as our Real Expression as Human Beings here on this Earth — where we should be the Custodians of this world — not the destroyers of it — join us at Desteni in bringing about a world where we can live in Dignity and in a way which is Best for All – where none must suffer or experience the horrific consequences of nuclear radiation, where we can consider how to do things in such a way that actually supports life here, and does not destroy the very ecosystem as nature as that which we actually require to live and exist here in the physical.

If you’re ready to participate in something that is Real for once, and not simply a marketed form of entertainment designed to channel your attention into a specific market for someone’s profit to keep you distracted from what really matters here — join us at the forums at the Equal Money website, where we’re busy developing the new system which will support us as life here, to live as how we would have really liked life to be — as a world free from suffering and exploitation, where we can actually have time to enjoy ourselves and express ourselves as physical beings here!

Radiation Detected on the West Coast- What To DO??

March 23, 2011 Leave a comment

.

.

Radiation from Japan has been detected on the West Coast of the United States. At this point, the UN is claiming that the levels of radiation are far below dangerous levels. However, since the World Health Organization and the International Atomic Energy Agency have had a long-standing relationship, I would think twice before trusting the UN on anything they have to say about nuclear energy. Here’s a quote from an article written by Oliver Tickell from The Guardian in 2009:

.

“Fifty years ago, on 28 May 1959, the World Health Organisation’s assembly voted into force an obscure but important agreement with the International Atomic Energy Agency – the United Nations “Atoms for Peace” organisation, founded just two years before in 1957. The effect of this agreement has been to give the IAEA an effective veto on any actions by the WHO that relate in any way to nuclear power – and so prevent the WHO from playing its proper role in investigating and warning of the dangers of nuclear radiation on human health.” Read the full article here.

.

So you see, what happens in this world, happens to us all. It doesn’t matter if it happens in Japan or the Gulf of Mexico- we live in a closed system- the effects, the outflows and consequences, reach us all eventually- thus it’s in our best interest to consider what is going on this world, in all parts.

.

We need to come together as a group and work together on these points. For so long we have been separated from each other, fighting each other, killing each other, harming each other, really we have done everything horrible you can imagine.

.

And now we suffer the consequences which are growing everyday and will continue to do so until we actually stand up and have a look at what we’re doing, and consider the consequences- realize how we are abusing each other, so that we can finally stop. How many are going to suffer horrifically from this radiation? How many are suffering from any number of vicious problems that are happening in this world, constantly.

..

It’s time we stand up and stop this. It is not beyond us, it is not ‘too difficult’ it is not ‘impossible’ to stop- of course it’s not- because we are the ones doing it- it’s simply a matter of just stopping.

.

How bad do things have to get before we’ll consider just what it is we’re doing here, and just what matters? Let’s not let it become too late.

.

.

The first thing we can do is implement an Equal Money System- this will ‘free us up’ from the ‘survival game’ so that we can actually slow down and get out of the ‘rat race’ and actually have the time to consider things. Like using nuclear power, for example- it’s probably something we should’ve never used, but we bought it because we wanted more power, and ‘they told us’ it was safe and they told us it’s an improvement and will make your life better, they sold it to our self interest and the human bought it. And now look at Japan, and remember Chernobyl..

.

Why is it we haven’t developed any safer method of energy? Does it have anything to do with that the Electric Utilities is in the top third industry for highest total amount of money spent on lobbying from 1998 to 2010, for a whopping total of $1,417,601,382? In 2010 alone, $191,304,085 was spent on lobbying.

.

So, how much do you have to lobby for an alternative? Yeah…

.

This is exactly why we need an Equal Money System- so that our system can no longer be controlled and dictated only by those with the money, which is of course the ones who own the businesses, and therefore, are going to use that money to support their businesses! Not You or Me or Life period. That’s why and how the world’s resources are being consumed faster than can be regenerated (which by the way we need those resources to be able to live, otherwise we DIE).

.

.

So for those of you who’d like to Live, and Live in a world where we can consider common sense what’s best for Life- Support an Equal Money System. Stand Up and Speak Out! Be the Change you want to see in this World- it won’t happen any other way, and when you are at the end of your life-

.

-will you look back and see that you did everything you could to leave this world better than you found it?

Help Japan- Don’t Donate to Capitalism- Support an Equal Money System

March 16, 2011 Leave a comment

You know, it’s in the face of violent natural disasters, that we get a unique opportunity to really see who we are- To see just who we are in the wake of such a disaster, how do we react, how do we respond, when nature strikes a devastating blow? Perhaps we should ‘make the most’ of a tragedy, and see what we can learn about ourselves in our reaction to the situation that’s going on in Japan.

People living near the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant have been evacuated from their homes due to the risk of radiation leaks. However, despite the risk of radiation contamination, some 180 plant workers have remained behind, to continue to try to keep the plant from having a meltdown.

They are being referred to as heroes, as the radiation levels they are likely being exposed to are extreme. And while these workers are possibly sacrificing their lives, all we are doing is saying ‘how brave’. This is the extent to which we simply don’t give a fuck. That this kind of situation was even possible to happen in the first place.

This situation never needed to happen in the first place, and the least we can do is ensure that this never happens to anyone else again. When we have an Equal Money System in place, we will be able to fully explore alternatives, but perhaps even more dramatic than that, we’ll be able to cut down significantly on how much energy we require, thus we won’t be tempted to put in nuclear plants because we’re trying to get the most we can just to try and keep up with the demand of the Capitalist system, which sucks the life out of the planet and everyone and everything on it with total disregard for Life whatsoever. And in an Equal Money System, we will have to make jobs as safe as we possibly can, otherwise no one will do them, because we won’t be forced to do jobs that are hazardous to our health just to make a living and maybe be able to survive and breathe another day in this world.

In an Equal Money System, we’ll be able to prevent these kind of tragedies, and we won’t be simply watching this happen to people on a TV screen, and just calling them heroes…

Those who try to buy away their Responsibility and Guilt by donating money supposedly to Japan, within this current monetary system, no that you are doing nothing to help, and in fact are only adding to to the problem, by supporting the current system in which things like this happen. It’s Time for a New System which Considers Life, you want to Help Japan-  Support Equal Money.

Dolphins Die- Science Don’t Know Why

February 26, 2011 Leave a comment

29 corpses of newborn dolphins have washed up on Mexico’s shores, so far this year. This is far more than usual, so scientists are investigating whether there’s a link between these deaths and the BP oil spill, which they’re saying is a definite possibility.

Some experts speculate that the oil spill could have compromised the pregnancies and development of the calves. Some reports have said that some of the corpses appeared to be covered in oil.

However, scientists say these deaths could be cause by disease or decrease in food supply or a sudden dip in water temperature, and pollution could also be a factor.

This is not, however, the first case of mass dolphin deaths in the area, there was one before the oil spill even happened as well, although the article makes no mention of any further details on that.

Here is a funny quote from the article: “Just because there was a horrible, horrible, horrible oil spill last year doesn’t mean that is what caused the deaths of these babies right now – though it could very well,” Randall Wells, a conservation scientist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, said.

This shows basically we don’t have a clue what the fuck is going on. How long have scientists been studying the earth and we still don’t have a clue- obviously this is not effective- we are not being effective in how we are going about understanding this world, this physical reality, the physical systems which we live in and are part of.

But this is what we get in a system where most of the people, the grand majority in fact, are too busy with such basic points as ‘survival’ and ‘making a living’ that it’s only a very few of us, those who’s taken jobs as scientists, that are actually busy with these points of researching the world’s system of nature.

In an Equal Money System- we will be ‘freed up’ from this ‘survival mode’ and thus more people will have more time to study these points, and we already know that ‘more heads are better than one’, so to speak, meaning that when we have more people working together on points as a group collaberating and sharing information, etc, you get results much faster and you can cross-check those points with everyone to make sure the point is effectively understood.

In an Equal Money System, we can have Real Science, which will study the World from Common Sense perspective, considering our Responsibility for and Outflows/Consequences of our Actions in this World.

As it is now, Most Science is used for businesses to make profit, so not only do we know almost Nothing about the very Ecosystem in which we Live and Require for us to Exist Here, but tons of scientific studies is made up bullshit for the purpose of selling pharmaceuticals. I mean, wtf?

Science has always ‘promised’ to ‘improve’ life, but it’s only actually gone to improving profit for those with enough money to manipulate and control the science industry, and in this current system, you can’t get around that, it’s built in- because a company or organization must do a monkey dance to earn a buck to do it’s research, and since everyone needs to have a job all the time to be able to afford to support themself, this means lots of unnecessary jobs must be created, therefore many scientists likely choose this profession not because its what they wanted to do, but because they had to do something and it pays better and has a better ‘image’ than most other jobs which are mostly ‘shitty’ retail jobs that no one really wants to do.

Unfortunately an extensive amount of abuse comes from this, animal testing for unnecessary makeup and other vanity related products, testing vehicle safety and sports gear effectiveness. Wherever the money is, that’s where science has had to follow. Therefore, we give ourselves an Equal Money System, and then science can be ‘freed up’ to be what it’s really intended to be, as support for life here and how best we can life here in a way that is sustainable and actually use science to support us to live better and better understand our world. Science can no longer be bought and sold, made to ‘fudge’ not simply test results, but even whole tests themselves, in order to protect the interest of the paying, interested parties.

Time to stop living in a World that is existing for profit- Time for Equal Money System.

Cutting Funding Kills- Equal Money System Needed

February 24, 2011 Leave a comment

So, just recently, in this article from CBS, two children died and four other children and four adults were hospitalized in either serious or critical condition from a house fire in Olney on Tuesday. And there is questioning going on as to whether these deaths are the result of Engine 61 being on a scheduled ‘brownout’, as that would have been the first engine to reach the scene. Another Engine took over, which according to Fire Department Lt. Mike Grant, “got there in good order”. However, Mike Kane from the Philadelphia Firefighters Union Local 22 said that Engine 61 could have been there in half the time. The scheduled brownouts are to help Philadelphia cut costs.

So here is one example of what happens when there is not the available money to effectively provide these services- people die. What’s it going to take, how many will have to die, before we will consider a system where we will be able to have these important services- and really it goes way beyond that, simply having funding for a fire department, there is many more dimensions even, as to why and how events like this happen, and people die as a result. It’s quite unfortunate.

And, in this article, the fire department in Wayne County in Michigan has to lay off some or possibly all of it’s fire fighters. And it’s likely they’ll have to lay off some of their police officers too.

We’d better get busy implementing a new system, because this one is failing, and people and children are dying as a result. It’s not because the labor isn’t there, we have the labor, people who’s willing and able to be the fire fighters and the police officers, but there is not enough money to facilitate these points- and money is just pieces of paper or values stored as information in a computer- so really, lets stop being fucking stupid- and give ourselves the money we need to facilitate our movement, so we can be effective here. Give money the value of life, wherein money only has value as a tool for life, wherein life is the value that gives money it’s ‘value’- so we can no longer be enslaved to pieces of paper! This is what the Equal Money System is about- a system which will actually support us to express ourselves here as who and what we really are. Investigate Equal Money.
