Thank you Denise! I really appreciate the confirmation that some of these things like the exhaustion, wackos reactions and just knowing more, and more often than before are part of the process. No idea if this will help anyone else as we are all different but I’ve noticed chi kung really helps with the energy balance.

Chi kung is nice if you are ill or out of shape as it requires little to begin except the intention-you can find explanatory videos on YouTube. Master Wong Kies Kit is my recommendation as his books are excellent but there are plenty of good teachers with free videos.
Thank you Aisha! Apologies everyone for posting this a few minutes before gathering time-i just saw it right now!
The constant companions wanted me to share this update with you today as we get ready to connect at 21:00 Oslo time for this month’s Gathering around the Pond:
“As you already know, this evening you will begin a new phase of your co-creational efforts, for as you once again sit down to connect, you will find connective doors that has so far been kept hidden from you, and through these doors, your combined energies will start to coalesce and merge in such a way, they will literally serve to wash away any resistance that may still linger anywhere in your systems. For you will truly become as if one, and you will truly merge into a field of energetic empowerment that will serve not only you, but this entire planet.

Victoria Collier and Ben-Zion Ptashnik, Truthout: Americans only have a small window of opportunity to break the grip of moneyed interests on our government before an advancing oligarchy consolidates power and locks in tyranny. A mass-based political movement must urgently be organized to restore democracy.
Roberto Cintli Rodriguez, Truthout: There appears to be a cottage industry of those who love to critique Cesar Chavez and the United Farm Workers movement, by people who have little first-hand knowledge of the events in question.
L Michael Hager, Truthout: In a decision reversing an earlier order that barred the forced feeding of a Guantánamo prisoner, a federal judge effectively re-sanctioned the painful and medically dangerous procedure that is internationally condemned as torture.
Stephen Leahy, Inter Press Service: The world is increasingly hungry because small farmers are losing access to farmland. Small farmers produce most of the world’s food but are now squeezed onto less than a quarter of its farmland, with commercial interests pushing them out.
Laura Carlsen, Foreign Policy In Focus: Mexico’s oil privatization scheme will hurt the environment, scar the landscape and leave Mexico at the mercy of transnational firms.
Henia Belalia, Waging Nonviolence: This question of intersectionality isn’t the first time that science is playing catch-up to traditional knowledge, and it won’t be the last. It relates all the systems of oppression we’re fighting against, such as white supremacy, colonialism and patriarchy, in our complicated identities, and within our own relationships.
Brad Friedman, The Brad Blog: The GOP’s leading contender for the office of California secretary of state has been cagey about his views on his party’s push to disenfranchise voters with voter ID laws.
Apostolis Fotiadis, Inter Press Service: The evolution of immigration and border control policy in Greece and its interdependence with European funding suggests an agenda which has been decided above national legislatures with strong coordination between European political actors and economic interests, while ignoring the human suffering it produces.
Norman Solomon, NormanSolomon.com: The Freedom of the Press Foundation calls the government’s effort to force The New York Times’ James Risen to reveal a source “one of the most significant press freedom cases in decades.”
Phyllis Bennis, Foreign Policy In Focus: Pope Francis’ seemingly impromptu prayer at Israel’s apartheid wall hinted at a radical critique of Israel in an otherwise carefully-orchestrated trip. By far the most lasting image of the trip was the popemobile’s seemingly unscripted halt at the wall, where he read “Apartheid Wall” and “Bethlehem is like the Warsaw Ghetto” on its 24-foot-high cement panels.
