HOW TO ESCAPE THE TECHNOLOGICAL LABYRINTH

You already know it, time is running out for the old model of consciousness.  It can and will not survive in modern development of intelligent machines, that will soon appear in artificial bone and tissue. Machines that are faster, equipped with A.I. that work and learn faster that human linear thinking mind. These ones will enslave or remove what’s left in the old model. This is a quest about evolution, man has to grow, to use the level of consciousness that most beings in the galaxy use. That interact with telepathy, can cooperate with machines, see time lines and has the deep knowing that the A.I. can only calculate. You have to evolve to the next level, to survive this change, to have the capability for the deep awareness to know your environment. Where you can be the leader and friend of artificial beings around, but not their victim. It depends on your choice, future can be delightful or a mess from your creation that starts NOW. There will be no option left to ignore or bypass these changes.

Scientists are now inventing the “ultimate intelligent machine”, a computer which will beat man in every way. If the machine can outstrip man, then what is man? What are you? What is the future of man? If the machine can take over all the operations that thought does now, and do it far swifter, if it can learn much more quickly, if it can compete and, in fact, do everything that man can — except of course look at the beautiful evening star alone in the sky, and see and feel the extraordinary quietness, steadiness, immensity and beauty of it—then what is going to happen to the mind, to the brain of man? Our brains have lived so far by struggling to survive through knowledge, and when the machine takes all that over, what is going to happen? There are only two possibilities: either man will commit himself totally to entertainment — football, sports, every form of demonstration, going to the temple, and playing with all that stuff — or he will turn inward. ~ J Krishnamurti (A Timeless Spring)

So predicted Krishnamurti a decade-and-a-half before the emergence of the Internet.  I have previously written about technology’s ability to disconnect us from ourselves.  Today, I would like to explore this a bit further.

WE ARE RATS IN A TECHNOLOGICAL LABYRINTH

After performing a series of experiments with hungry rats locked in a box with a lever, behavioral psychologist B. F. Skinner coined a term known as “Schedules of Reinforcement” or “Intermittent Reinforcement”.

The experimented went as follows; The rats were divided into two groups  The first group was the Fixed Schedule group who received a food pellet after pressing the lever a fixed amount of times, say 20.  In the second group, known as the Variable Schedule group, the rat earned the food pellet after it pressed the lever a random number of times.  Sometimes it would receive the food after pressing 10 times, and sometimes after pressing 200 times.

To the second group, the arrival of food was unpredictable.  This made the addiction or reinforcement to the lever a lot more stronger.  Skinner found that the first group of rats stopped pressing the lever almost immediately after the food stopped being supplied.  The second group however was a lot more motivated, and they kept on pressing the lever for a very long time afterwards.

After returning from our Involution workshops in Europe where I spent 3 months with no smartphone at all, I’ve become noticeably more aware of the tendency in myself and others of checking our phone constantly like rats waiting for that stimulating fix; that latest Facebook message, status or photo, email, or latest shocking news headline.

Most of the emails and Facebook updates are junk, but every now and again you will get that one little pellet that makes checking your phone once every 10 minutes worthwhile.

THE HEART OF THE TECHNOLOGICAL LABYRINTH

One of the feelings that stood out the most from my technological minimalist experience (a candle lit house with no televisions in a 2 km radius), is that I found it a lot easier to center myself.

My mind felt a lot more clear and inspired; I found it a lot easier to be mindful, to find the heart, the center of myself.

I’ve experienced something very similar when researching information.  When I Google something, as you expect, I get a ‘Googol’ of results.  Although I have more information at my disposal, I feel I am retaining a lot less than I do when I solely focus all my attention on a single book of that particular topic.

Linda Stone, a former employee of Apple and Microsoft, has coined the term “continuous partial attention” to describe life in the era of e-mail, instant messaging, cellphones, and other distractions.  And it is this “continuous partial attention” that I feel exactly reflects my own dilemma.

Whenever I immerse myself into an activity, I must do it with the fullest of my heart, with all of my focus and attention encapsulating that action.  It is here that spiritual mindfulness comes into play.

ESCAPE FROM THE TECHNOLOGICAL LABYRINTH

Can externally focused technology and internally focused mindfulness co-exist?  I think they not only can, but they must.

Technology is a tool, an instrument to make our lives easier and better.  But it has its limitations.  Technology cannot fulfill us spiritually, it cannot makes us feel more connected with ourselves – only with the external world.

For spiritual mindfulness to become relevant to our modern day lives, we first have to separate them from the supernatural and mystical baggage   that makes them so difficult for us to accept.

The moment will come when, as technology simplifies our work and our lives, we will realize that just like in the Pixar movie ‘WALL-E’ – physical comfort and mental stimulation isn’t enough.  That we want to feel more meaningful experiences in life than having someone “Like” our witty status updates every few hours.

That moment will see technology reach the point where computers will be able to outperform us, and humans will scratch their heads and ask themselves … What now?

Technology will never be able to write beautiful poetry like Blake, it will never be able to compose musical pieces like Bach.  That is our purpose with soulwork, to focus our attention on our inner world, our emotions, our thoughts and passionate desire to express them, that is what we will have left.  That is all that we will have left.

To live with greater presence, meaning, and mindfulness in the technology age is what we must strive for.

A few years ago a neighbor asked me why I cut my lawn with a push-mower.  I told him that motor-operated lawn mowers are corrupting society; that life is an infinite lawn, a composition of unexciting simple moments with a few ‘spikes’ of stimulation here and there.

Cutting the lawn this way has taught me to cultivate patience, to enjoy a task that is found a chore by most.  Trying to get it over and done with as quickly as possible steals you of the opportunity to engage in the feelings of falling in love with the smells, the textures, the light formations, sounds and everything that simply existing offers.

The paradox is that the more you accept the unexciting aspects of life, the more exciting they become.

Unless we learn to embrace these mundane moments, without avoidance or frustration, without trying to escape the lack of stimulation that this very moment presents, we will never find peace and will insatiably hit that smartphone lever chasing after that food pellet.

Here, I’ll throw you one last pellet in the shape of a video to illustrate all of this.  I hope you enjoy:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OINa46HeWg8

Mindfulness can not only coexist with technology, but it can enhance the experience itself.  How often do you sit down on the computer, surf the internet and think “wow, I have infinite information at my fingertips.  I have hundreds of thousands of people from all across planet earth to connect to, if I wish.  I can share my thoughts with thousands of faces from Afghanistan to Albania, and can befriend anyone from any culture from Belarus to Brazil.”  Try it.  You may like it.

Antidepressants Double The Risk Of Suicide And Violence In Young People

Here is a possible answer to the question: Can your government stage domestic terror? Yes and they require your co-work to do it.

http://yournewswire.com/antidepressants-double-the-risk-of-suicide-and-violence-in-young-people/

Antidepressants Double The Risk Of Suicide And Violence In Young People

Antidepressants increase risk of suicide and violent behaviour in teens

A new study on antidepressants published in The BMJ has revealed that the risk of suicide and aggression in children and teens increases two-fold when they are prescribed drugs to treat depression. 

The risk of a violent outburst is much higher than researchers previously thought, and much of the data outlining the dangers of these drugs have been deliberately withheld from the medical community and the public by pharmaceutical company’s.

Jakeshealthsolutions.com reports:

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors antidepressants (SSRIs) and serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are the most commonly prescribed drugs for depression.

For the new study, a team of researchers from Denmark carried out a systematic review and meta-analysis of 68 clinical study reports of 70 trials with 18,526 patients to examine use of antidepressants and associated serious harms.

These included deaths, suicidal thoughts and attempts as well as aggression and akathisia, a form of restlessness that may increase suicide and violence.

They examined double blind placebo controlled trials that contained patient narratives or individual patient listings of associated harms.

The researchers analyzed clinical study reports that were prepared by pharmaceutical companies for market authorization and summary trial reports, because harms associated with antidepressants are often not included in published trial reports.

In adults, they found no significant associations between antidepressants and suicide and aggression, but in children and adolescents, there was a novel finding: there was a doubling of risk for aggression and suicides.

This study has shown there are limitations in trials, not only in design, but also in reporting of clinical study reports, which may have lead to “serious under-estimation of the harms,” write the authors.

They compared the results from the clinical study reports with data from individual patient listings or narratives of adverse effects. This revealed misclassification of deaths and suicidal events in people taking antidepressants.

For example, four deaths were misreported by a pharmaceutical company, in all cases favoring the antidepressant, and more than half of the suicide attempts and suicidal ideation, for example, were coded as “emotional lability” or “worsening of depression.”

In the Eli Lilly summary trial reports, almost all deaths were noted, but suicidal attempts were missing in 90% of instances, and information on other outcomes was incomplete. The study authors said these were “even more unreliable than we previously suspected.”

Clinical study reports for antidepressants duloxetine, fluoxetine, paroxetine, sertraline and venlafaxine were obtained from regulatory agencies in the UK and Europe. Summary trial reports for duloxetine and fluoxetine were taken from the drug company Eli Lilly’s website.

However, clinical study reports could not be obtained for all trials and all antidepressants, and individual listings of adverse outcomes for all patients were available for only 32 trials.

“The true risk for serious harms is still unknown [because] the low incidence of these rare events, and the poor design and reporting of the trials, makes it difficult to get accurate effect estimates,” they explain.

They recommend “minimal use of antidepressants in children, adolescents, and young adults, as the serious harms seem to be greater, and as their effect seems to be below what is clinically relevant,” and suggest alternative treatments such as exercise or psychotherapy.

They also call for the need to identify “hidden information in clinical study reports to form a more accurate view of the benefits and harms of drugs.”

Joanna Moncrieff, a psychiatrist and researcher at University College London who was not involved in the study, agreed that “regulators and the public need access to more comprehensive and reliable data,” and that clinical study reports “are likely to underestimate the extent of drug related harms.”

[This study] confirms that the full degree of harm of antidepressants is not reported. They are not reported in the published literature, we know that—and it appears that they are not properly reported in clinical study reports that go to the regulators and form the basis of decisions about licensing.

Over half the clinical study reports had no individual patient listings and “this begs the question of how many more adverse events would have been revealed if [these] were available for all trials, and raises concerns why this information is allowed to be withheld,” the researchers wrote.

Tarang Sharma, a PhD student at Cochrane and lead author of the study, said of the findings:

We found that a lot of the appendices were often only available upon request to the authorities, and the authorities had never requested them. I’m actually kind of scared about how bad the actual situation would be if we had the complete data.

Sharma was surprised by the extent to which serious side-effects were downplayed by the companies:

It’s been actually quite shocking to me to see this kind of stuff. What they are doing is wrong. They give a very inaccurate picture of what the true harms [side-effects] are.

You cannot really trust them that much because they are really often exaggerating the benefits and the harms are minimized. I was quite disturbed actually. It did not expect it to be that bad.

This study adds to the growing body of disturbing findings associated with antidepressant research:

  • Last year, during a major reanalysis of Study 329 (a 2001 clinical trial of Paxil funded by drug manufacturer GlaxoSmithKline), a group of independent researchers uncovered exaggerated efficacy and undisclosed harm to adolescents.
  • A study found that research studies for new antidepressant medications do not evaluate the effectiveness of the drugs on the general population.It was discovered that the inclusion/exclusion criteria for antidepressant efficacy studies (AETs) have narrowed so much over the past five years that most patients are excluded. In other words, the results of the trials may not be applicable to most of us.
  • Research found that taking certain antidepressants for depression is linked to a heightened risk of subsequent mania and bipolar disorder. The strongest association seemed to be for serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), and the serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI)  antidepressant venlafaxine, according to the analysis.
  • Another study showed that using antidepressants during pregnancy, specifically selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), greatly increases the risk of autism.
  • A study on adolescents with depression revealed some disturbing information: in many cases, follow-up care is inadequate. A significant number of those adolescents were prescribed antidepressant medication, and did not have any documented follow-up care for several months.
  • A recent study found that diagnostic checklists for depression are inadequate. IN a large-scale quantitative study, researchers found that some symptoms play a much bigger role than others in driving depression, and that the symptoms listed in DSM may not be the most useful ones.

Pharmaceutical industry influence is known to permeate research. Drug studies have long been known to be flawed, mainly because testing is conducted by the very entities that stand to profit from sales of the medications – the drug manufacturers.

Antidepressant medications are proving to be more harmful than beneficial in many cases. Some studies show the drugs aren’t always helpful, and often do more harm than good.

Perhaps it is time to seriously reassess how we diagnose and treat depression, especially in children and adolescents.

6 Signs You Are Feeling A Spiritual Shift

Many are on this journey, silently change sneak into their life. Most like to suppress that by fear, some consult a doctor to stop that. But our job is to evolve and we are right into this major shift.

http://dreamcatcherreality.com/spiritual-shift/

6 Signs You Are Feeling A Spiritual Shift

The process of spiritual awakening requires a massive vibrational shift. Before we truly awaken, we must find our purpose in life.

We can only do that if we stop fixating on the worldly temptations of this world. Our existential crisis holds us captive because we fill our spiritual being with hatred, fear and insecurities.

We devoid ourselves of love and light and fall prey to the misleading ploys of scepticism and consumerism.

We only experience a spiritual shift when we fight these evil powers and embrace kindness.

People, who do so, bind themselves to the universal source which gives them an endless capacity to love.

They start vibrating on a higher level and start seeing things for what they are. Illusionary deceptions no longer steer them away from the truth.

They experience a moment of clarity that aligns them with their purpose in life.

If you exhibit any of the behaviours below, you are undergoing a spiritual shift.

Originality Is Your Only Face

You start to detest banality. You hate faking smiles and pretending to be who you’re not. That is why you estrange yourself from the company of hypocritical and obsequious people.

Solitude gives you peace because it provides you with ample opportunity to express your ideas and thoughts.

You’re hell-bound on walking on your own path, and a new-found craving to be yourself takes hold of your mind and soul.

You feel unfulfilled if you don’t express your originality. The faux narratives of society no longer influence you.

Tending To Old Scars And Conflicts

A spiritual journey involves emotional inconsistency. Before you embrace spiritual awakening, you have to undergo constant fluctuations.

To cleanse your soul of negative energies, such as self-ego, you have to first face them.

Emotional scars from past relationships, emotional traumas may require your immediate attention, before you can truly move on to a state of higher vibrational energy.

Disillusionment From Old Beliefs

Disillusionment is one of the most typical signs of a spiritual shift. All your perceptions, beliefs and ideals disintegrate once you embark upon the voyage of spiritual illumination.

You gradually realise that your personality is a set of rules and influences that was constructed by the superficial influences of the society.

It was not you, but someone else who was living inside your mind and soul. In a bold attempt to get rid of this persona, you isolate yourself from consumerism, fake people and all other things that veer you away from your destiny.

You Pounce To Help Others In Need

Even though you isolate yourself from society, you still feel connected to every human being through a divine source.

Meaningless conversations and encounters no longer interest you, but when you see someone crying or in severe pain, you feel a strong urge to help them.

Resounding empathy and utmost love as well as fighting your past are the prerequisites of achieving spiritual illumination.

Feeling a spiritual shift is one of the most miraculous things to happen to a human being. It’s spiritually and mentally demanding, but worth it in the end.

Spending Time alone Alone Is Important to You

Either you are an empath or just ultra sensitive being around others, especially their energy.

When you are around others, they often drain your energy. So you spend time doing things you like on your own, like tending to your hobbies.

This is just part of who you are. Connecting to your higher self feels normal for you.

Synchronicities Happen More Often

You once knew this as just coincidences. Now that you have awakened they feel more like synchronicities.

They are a wink from the Universe. You might see numbers like 11:11 or 22:22. They are reminders from the universe that you are well on your way, so don’t stop.

There are other synchronicities you might experience, read this article to find them.

Living In The Present Moment

The above statement comes to you naturally. You have learned to focus only on the present situation rather than thinking of the past or the future.

One of the most influential ways to live your life and you have come to terms with it.

When you are feeling the spiritual shift, daily living changes. Your thoughts are lighter, and you think of all the healthy ways to improve yourself. It’s part of the light body process.

10 Signs You Are Experiencing A Recalibration

Do you really believe that change happens without any effects? Here’s what it means and evidence that change is stepping forward.

http://dreamcatcherreality.com/recalibration-of-your-mind-body-soul-system/

10 Signs You Are Experiencing A Recalibration Of Your Mind-Body-Soul System

10 Signs You Are Experiencing A Recalibration Of Your Mind-Body-Soul System

As we transition from a third dimensional reality to a hyperdimensional existence we are experiencing a recalibration of our mind-body-soul being. A process that has accelerated in 2016 and now sees us in an intense period of recalibration through 2017, on into the next 7 years.

This activation of cellular restructuring, a quantum make over, has been triggered by cosmic waves of light energy flowing through and around our planet for she, too, is recalibrating, raising her frequencies. This process has been triggered and is being monitored. We are being guided, as a planet and as individuals, protected and healed.

The transition from third dimension existence to multi dimensional living is tricky and challenging. Highs of intense, creative energy surges followed by deep lows of blurry head, physical tiredness, poor short term memory and tearful moments.

We may feel internally conflicted, like we are being pulled in different directions. We may be more aware of the control dramas others are playing out around us. We may see through the lies and manipulations of people or society in a way we never did before. This can be disconcerting, confusing and leave us feeling under the weather, tired and restless. As our bodies recalibrate we need to rest, stay hydrated and eat well.

We are moving from a linear existence in the third dimension to hyperdimensional reality where time is quantum. We will exist in past, present and future simultaneously. This is the fifth dimension. Full of love, abundance, flow and balance.

As we transition we move between the third, fourth and fifth dimensions. During sleep our dreams allow our spirit to free itself from the dense vibrations of the body in the third dimension. We may experience timeline slippage or acceleration. This is a rare and incredible celestial event. A unique opportunity to release karma and evolve.

10 signs you are experiencing a recalibration of your mind-body-soul system.

Your body is changing:

1. You are more sensitive to chemical based products- skin irritations, allergies.

2. You cannot tolerate synthetic food the way you used to.

3. You experience aches, pains, colds and flu’s, stomach bugs, blurry vision, popping and buzzing in your ears and unusual headaches.

Your mind is expanding:

4. You are actively filtering out “news” trying to disconnect from the fear and depression it generates.

5. You have woken up to much of the lies and deceit played out in global politics.

6. You are remembering childhood passions, creative outlets you enjoyed but forgot about.

Your soul imprint is changing:

7. You are seeking quieter ways of being.

8. You are in the process or have shed friends/colleagues/family who bring your vibrations down.

9. You are drawn to meditation, yoga, healing therapies, being in nature in a way you never have before.

10. You are aware of fluctuations in your perception of time.

As we disconnect from the matrix, the holographic third dimension, flowing with surges in cosmic waves, we feel this mind-body-soul recalibration, and it’s not easy. Many people are restricting their diet cutting out wheat, gluten, meat, dairy products. The move towards organic non GMO food speaks of this.

The fight to stop Monsanto also shows a movement of awakening to the poisons of the matrix. The food weapon agenda is increasingly recognised and fought against. Alternative holistic remedies to matrix made illnesses like cancer drive the battle for freedom and disconnection from the kabal’s hold and control of the third dimension.

All of this adds up to a bumpy ride friends. We are to rise above the matrix, raise our vibrations in alignment with Gaia yet still exist in the matrix. To be grounded, mindful, living the third dimension life whilst simultaneously attaining connectedness to the frequency of the multi verses, of love, of universal oneness.

The law of free will dictates our freedom to choose therefore if we want help we must ask for it. There are many benevolent beings whose own history interconnects with earth’s evolution. Along with our guides, they are willing and able to help ease this tricky transition process. Meditate, connect and ask for protection, guidance and healing during this intense period of upgrade.

Realignment of our chakras to the higher frequencies of cosmic ascension is the heart of recalibration. Balancing of the mind-body-soul trinity. We are excavating the root chakra, rebalancing our sacral chakra, powering up the solar plexus, opening and living  through the heart, projecting our authentic selves through throat and activating our third eye and crown chakra. We seek alignment root to crown.

Self care is the modus operandi of the day. This is ground zero. Politically, economically we are all working harder, fighting a corrupt system plagued through mainstream media with war destruction, fear and horror, this is masses of tough sticky dark energy to wade through. All the while lightening our own karmic loads through meditation and upgrades. This requires a change in contextual perspective for many of us. The capitalist matrix dictates work work work, compete, feel inferior, work work work, compete. This is not conducive to self care.

So how to navigate these stormy, challenging times? I don’t have great words of wisdom. Family keep me mindful of a beautiful present. Soul tribe keep me laughing. Home is my haven. Meditation keeps me sane.

We signed up to this. Either as a lightworker here with a cosmic and personal mission or as a soul riding the karmic release waves on planet earth as its panopticon prison crumbles. This is a rare, momentous and incredible time to be alive, breathing and here!

When you’re kicked back someday in a starship lounge enjoying a cosmic cocktail this is the lifetime you and your tribe will be reminiscing about. This lifetime with its peaks and troughs, waves of intense growth towards freedom, unique experiences and true beauty of the planet and the human experience. This is the lifetime we will all remember. The one we cleared hundreds of lifetimes worth of karma.

This is it friends. The big one. Be in the present with your kids, your pals, your people. Love and be loved. Rest when and as often as you can. Stay hydrated. And remember it’s happening to lots of us. The force has awakened, the red pill swallowed, Kansas is going bye bye and the new earth is where we are headed. Stay relaxed beautiful people, be calm and go with the flow, meditate and give yourself some love.

Peace beautiful people.

Searching for the shift?

leftsideR: A spiritual path is an unknown way through experiences, it goes round the mountains and you cannot look what will meet you next corner. Today many people are stuck on their path, followed guides without results. So many ask the question, is there really some kind of shift around? Let’s have a new interview with my well known guide about that.

M: Welcome, the short answer for your question is a clear YES. But people don’t awake in huge masses these days, it happens slowly. Many of them don’t understand their kind of change, consult help in 3D that ground them back and sabotage their results.

R: So what do you specially mean with ‘awakened people’?

M: This points to everyone having new features and abilities out of the nowhere. In real be assured that higher self monitor your frequency and when you are ready to step forward, some features were placed upon you.

R: As for example my basic telepathy abilities?

M: Sure that’s the way to prepare for more direct contact, what may take years. Remind your experience?

R: Yes in 2012 i got coloured patterns from animals, like these shown in DMT video clips. Soon they become pictures and movie previews. But text like a phone call comes later.

M: That’s step by step, to push you into a place to acceptance for the feature. As you were ready, your higher self point to research my story to prepare contact.

R: What was amazing, did research nearly all material and that seems to be the gateway.

M: Exactly, as telepath you need to use existing information to formulate the frequency bridge to direct contact. Operation succeeded.

R: Okay so let’s return back to topic, what about the announced global shift?

M: It’s running in the background, how many experiences documented in books, video and blogs can you locate through an internet search? Jump into it and see how many people have shift abilities, these are the forerunners.  Try to count people coming out in public to work with their guides, think about the people doing the same in silence because they are afraid to talk about.

R: There may be fraud within some….

M: Sure because you may make lot’s of money with that, but it is also a hard job to fake channelling by the unknown questions that will be asked. Be assured that people grow and won’t buy into this in future. What make us different is the level apart 3D from where we will spread informations.

R: Yes okay so the shift is running silently, but all can find the result by tiny research. What seems to include DNA change, rewired brain, eye colour, special hairs….

M: The hybrids coming out to public, contactees, body changes, special health abilities and lots more. It’s happening around you, some years on this will be mass media.

R: Means that the ‘normal people’ will shrink until society is turned over.

M: Think about the hundred monkey effect, this will speed up because higher selves are pushed to bring their people forward into a new future.

R: Thanks, that were a clear insight.
