- Mona Delfino: Diagnosis vs. Condition
A good primer for grasping the difference between medical science and more holistic healing.
- Scientists Link Autism To These Toxic Chemicals During Fetal Development
With Autism rates rising sharply in parts of the world, it’s worth finally examining the toxic chemicals we have in our environment that come from everyday products and industrial processes–that are absolutely unnecessary. I’ve always thought that a good first step toward real and lasting environmental awareness is to start researching the ingredients lists on products you buy. A lot of it isn’t good for anybody.
- Scientific American: Autism Linked to Environment
This “new” study from 2009, in case a site like Collective Evolution is too granola-crunching for your taste.
- Riptides and the Emotional Guidance Scale
Feeling chaotic energies about lately? This is for you!
- The Schumann Resonances
- Godzilla – The Mutant Reptilian Release Valve
I’m really flummoxed why it’s almost rebellious to not go to the movies nowadays. Being the target of emotional manipulation is tiring. Any feel-good factor (shallow as it is) is about as nutritious as the overpriced popcorn. Plus there are too many things I’d rather be doing.
- Hell Is Real, If You Can Believe It
A lot of good questions and thought experiments in here that I also mused in my younger days. I believe hell exists–the hells we create for ourselves. It was one of my proudest moments in a previous job (as educator and tour guide) to explain “Hindu hell” to a bunch of young UK teenagers about to visit a Shivite temple in Singapore. I pretended, after introducing the concept, to complain about the tour, the weather, the traffic jam, the discomforts of a physical body, and the kids joined in the bitch-fest heartily. I then whipped the topic back to the point: “Kids, THIS IS HELL.” Mortal existence: One problem after another. No lasting satisfaction, challenges of different scales and types, all of them to be surmounted while in the “prison” of our own bodies until the cycle of rebirth was broken and an individual reached moksha–liberation. The reactions ranged from stunned silence to a bunch of loud OMGs. It was a triumphant moment. As I said, they were teenagers. Do you know how hard it is to reach teenagers? (Janet pats self on back.)
