Boycott GMOs

This is a practical post outlining several things you can do to stop supporting Monsanto and their cronies who have foisted genetically modified organisms on us. I though it was a helpful post–it gives a good list of numbers to call. Thanks to Myra Said It–please read the full article there.

There is power in the dollar & power in numbers!

How many of these things can you do?

  1. Buy only organic foods for a week.
  2. Call or Fax the ‘Frankenfood Fifteen.’
    Tell them to remove GMO ingredients, including rBGH, from their brand products or you won’t buy them anymore.

The Student Loan Swindle

The Student Loan Swindle

It was announced last summer that total student loan debt, at $830 billion, now exceeds total US credit card debt! What about organizing a collective action to withhold loan payment for one month to send a message to the banks? I recently read the book The Student Loan Scam: The Most Oppresiv ...

Egypt – All Lines are Nines

Egypt – All Lines are Nines

I did an I Ching reading recently, and to my surprise I got Ch'ien (The Creative) in which all lines are solid. Solid lines are either numbered 7 (Young Yang) or 9 (Old Yang). (See how to count yarrow stalks). When I read the special section about what it means when all lines are nines--it made me t ...

To Live

To Live

Well, I have been getting a lot of encouragement about my writing of late, which is making me too bold perhaps. I used to never show my writing to anyone as I was writing it as an outlet for myself and no-one ever seemed to really get what I was on about. I just have to say thank you guys for readi ...

Germ Theory vs Cellular Theory

Germ Theory vs Cellular Theory

In 2003 when I first started writing for Healthy Options magazine in New Zealand I did a three day fast and spent a couple days at the Auckland library (some people do prayer and fasting, I do reading and fasting-heh). Now those of you who do fasts know that it is a good way to clear your mind and g ...

The Global Lunar Mind Shift

The Global Lunar Mind Shift

I'm really behind in posting as we haven't been feeling too well. We spent the first 10 days of 2011 purging in the most visceral of ways--right when I was planning a whole bunch of cool posts. As a result I am feeling quite frustrated. I thought I was gonna be on top of things this year--instead I ...
