“Spending time in nature is healing energy for the mind, body and soul.”
Thank you for posting this. Between all the spills, fracking the everglades, dumping waste on the Great Barrier Reef and more idiocy like this law-one begins to wonder if the war on nature is a metaphor after all??
Thank you for sharing this.
Thank you for sharing this. I’m so grateful for all of you who make up this supportive community online!
Beloved Light Tribe, I will get the article series finished and up this week.
This is not a busy-ness energy coming in; we truly need to pay attention to the inner world, the inner transition, in order to be the calm, loving, centered wayshowers as the frequency rises.
Kindwhile we all need to breathe, receive the new light, have responsible clearing sessions – on behalf of yourself and the collective – and fully accept the Shift. The next waves are deep core-busting energetics which will get more intense, however they are also heavily encoded for the activation of Grace. These light waves are intended to amplify distortion on our behalf – Watch the illusion, but don’t embody it. Feel the revelations within and without.

Thank you for posting this. When will we choose to do things to prevent this instead of suffering the damage ?

Duke Energy unsure how long it will take to stop ash leak that has discolored Dan River
The Dan River turned grayer and grayer downriver as the ash traveled, and by Tuesday the familiar brown of the river running through Danville had changed to a depressing gray; even some of the vegetation along its banks was covered in gray ash.

For most of my life, I’ve believed myself to be a person. Apparently, I was wrong.
I’ve recently become privy to the fact that I am, instead of human, a parasite. Specifically, I am a life-draining, blood-sucking, economy wrecking, nation dooming species of parasite. Apparently, I became a parasite a few years ago when I started drawing Social Security Disability checks. According to various authorities on arthropodology, among them Conservative talk radio hosts (Rash Limburger springs to mind), some more strident members of the faction of the GOP ironically called the TEA Party, and certain friends and family members who are unaware of my source of income, I am a parasite and if me and my kind could be eradicated from the face of the Earth, this planet (or at least the portion occupied by the United States) would be a much healthier, safer, economically sounder, and altogether more wholesome place…

Thank you for sharing your understanding of this issue. I know it is possible but find it highly unlikely that a young woman would make up such an experience decades later and publish it for attention or any other manipulative reason. I agree that it is much more common in our society to repress people who tell the truth about such traumatic experiences and punish victims because perpetrators are wealthy, famous, popular etc.
I personally have never seen any talent in mr Allen’s productions. I find his art shallow, insipid and utterly entrenched in the colonized patriarchal worldview.
His so called art makes the case that personal indulgence in morally reprehensible behaviour is just part of life and therefore must be accepted and even excused.
A man who has sex with a teenage adopted child even if he does marry her is already obviously a pedophile so Dylan’s experience is hardly unlikely given the outside evidence the whole world already saw in the news 20 years ago.
Derrick Jensen explains very clearly in A Language Older Than Words what is going on in our culture with repressing and punishing those who tell the truth about abuse and defending the abusers.
Our culture (colonized patriarchal culture) is rooted in and based on power over, hierarchy and abuse.
It can’t operate without those repulsive things.
So imho the discussion is not just about Dylan’s horrible experience but about do we continue to agree with and support that vision of reality?
Is “talent” a free pass for criminal behaviour? Are women and children people or not?
We can have academic discussion and politely contemplate this but the raw open non1% side of patriarchal culture has long had a very short clear answer to this kind of cruelty to children. Bikers (as in Hell’s Angels etc) take such individuals and bury them with a dead dog on top to make finding them harder.
As a dedicated practitioner of ahimsa and nonviolence I am not recommending this just pointing out for the apologists what most people in non academic settings think about people like Woody Allen. This is why pedophiles frequently end up in solitary for their own protection in prison
Even in a culture based on violence and power over the basic instinct of care for children will not tolerate this
I don’t know what kind of a person Woody Allen is. Actually, I don’t even believe in “kinds” of people – you know, racists, sexists, rapists, good, bad, ugly. I have seen people I otherwise like engage in awful behavior, and people I find difficult have impressed me with unexpected acts of kindness. So let me rephrase it like this: I don’t know what Woody Allen has done, aside from his work in cinema. I find some of it compelling, and some of it boring, and some of it self-indulgent.
Allen’s talent was initially a large part of what some internet commentators are disingenuously calling a “controversy” over his daughter Dylan Farrow’s accusations of sexual abuse. (If you are somehow unaware of this, come out from under your rock and do a quick Google search.)
At first, the issue was whether one can appreciate the films of a sexual predator…

Thank you for posting this. So many who refuse to process their own internal issues and baggage seem determined to enforce their dysfunctional perspective on others. No good comes from allowing them to drag us down with them.
There will always be someone that will attempt to tell you the who, what, where, when, how of your life. They will push, pull, poke, pinch, and prod you into conforming to fit into what they consider a “normal” existence. There will be times where standing in your truth and in The Light will feel like a sobering, lonely experience.

Mike Ludwig, Truthout: Democrats in Congress have introduced legislation that would restore net-neutrality rules struck down last month by a federal appeals court. But the bill faces a steep uphill battle in the House, where some Republicans oppose any expansion of regulatory power at the FCC.

Dr. Brian Moench, Truthout: On January 25, away from the spotlight of Washington DC and the news media, one of the largest and most significant environmental protests in years took place in the most unlikely of places – Salt Lake City.
Dimitris Dalakoglou and Anna Christofidi, Truthout: The growing ideological intimacy between centrist-right and extreme-right parties throughout Europe provides fertile ground for the increasingly brutal treatment of refugees and migrants – most recently in Greece.
The Daily Take, The Thom Hartmann Program: Republicans are outraged that Coca-Cola would dare “tarnish” a patriotic American anthem with foreign languages. The fiasco that was the conservative reaction to Coke’s Super Bowl ad is symbolic of a bigger issue: The Republican Party has become the last refuge of bigots.
Anis Shivani, Truthout: Simple-minded devotion to so-called “behind the scenes” consultations among candidate Romney and his family plunges the documentary Mitt into the abyss of know-nothing, self-affirming reality TV.
Michael Z. Youhana: Contrary to conventional wisdom, US actions in Fallujah during – and even before – the Iraq War played a role in bringing the latest eruption of violence to the city.
Barbara Garson, TomDispatch: Health care isn’t the first boon that President Obama tried to give us through a public-private partnership. When he took office, more than 25 percent of US home mortgages were underwater. The president offered those homeowners debt relief through banks and shied away from direct government aid.

Jesse Lemisch, New Politics: We will never get good health care for all if we fail to face head-on the problem of superior access to health care for the privileged – these are aspects of a central problem of inequality in our society.
Concentrated Wealth and Democracy Are Incompatible
