Watching Our Health Go Up in Smoke

Brian Moench, Truthout: Medical waste incineration never made any public health or economic sense, but now that the science overwhelmingly demonstrates its noxiousness, capitalist ideology prevents it from dying a necessary death.

Oslo Radhus~

Thank you Cindy! I love seeing the beautiful possibilities where people focus on what’s good instead of what is wrong. I would love it if our capital in Washington, D.C. had more colourful art, murals and beauty and less of the gridlock and unkindness that seems to “colour” it now.;-)

Oslo’s radhus or town hall is covered with phenomenal artwork and murals.

Full Moon Phase/Total Lunar Eclipse: illumination

Moon in Aries

Skills: embrace life; watch

Negative Imprint: guilt, self-delusion, suppression, operating solely from base instincts, mistrust, selfishness, fear, tension, loss

Positive Imprint: transcendence, change, new perception, discovery, unseen assistance, attraction, resonance, passion, endurance, self-reliance, mysticism, magic

Welcome to the dance of life today. The dawn of the Blood Moon reveals a very special change.

Today marks the time when the energetic wave that values freedom, life, and love (natural world order) overpowers the energetic wave that values control, death, and fear (unnatural world order).

The Mahavidya Kali joins us today, leading the dance. She shows us that rebirth comes from the churning chaos. So today we will watch the lunacy of the Total Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon with a different understanding. We see destiny in the changes. We see the structures of the control paradigm turning to sand. It’s happening right before wise owls’ eyes. The matrix is falling down from under itself.

It does not appear this way on the surface. But it is true.

On the individual level today, the Blood Moon brings fiery emotions with the activation of planets in fire signs and aspects of Pluto and Uranus. Storms of emotional “wild-fires” can rage. Most of this is the projection of the shadow side clashing with the full light of clarity. We see our own and other’s delusions. If the truth hurts today, understand that all that is being revealed is taking you to another level – a place that is better suited to you. Destiny is unfolding and it asks you to join the dance that transcends limitations.

Even when we are taking the perspective of viewing the energy as a shift to a better way, it can be draining. Shifts can be quite taxing. Physical energy levels tend to be lower under today’s astrological conditions. So don’t push yourself too hard. Feel yourself merged with the rhythm of the Gaia Sophia, a strong and steady beat that ensconces us.

A new day dawns today, but no matter what transpires for each of us, we will embrace it with the knowledge of the Sabian symbol for the Full Moon: spirits dancing in the setting Sun. It’s our dance now.

Thank you for supporting the Oracle Report. Blessings to all!

Instead of writing ticket, Michigan cop buys booster seat for girl (+video) – CSMonitor.com

To watch the video, or read the rest of this article, please click the link below the text. I wanted to share this because we see the opposite so much more in the news-and of course we *should* see it until it is changed.

But it does no one any good to demonize or prejudge any group of people. We have to stay open to the positive possibilities inherent in the humanity of those who are in positions of power. We have to keep the positive examples in mind alongside of the monsters to keep our own hearts open.

I have personally met plenty of jerks from police officers to politicians and every power level in between-but I have met a lot MORE of all professions who were like this officer.

Love is our natural state. Cruelty, racism, violence are all dysfunctional. They only arise in broken people.

When we no longer have to protest the insane violence at all levels of our society because THIS behavior has become standard; then the Shift will be evident to all.

Bless this man and everyone like him who continues to act from love in spite of the cultural programming toward fear.

Instead of writing ticket, Michigan cop buys booster seat for girl (+video)

(Read article summary)

By Jacob Axelrad, Staff writer / October 7, 2014

(Read caption)

“The easiest 50 bucks I ever spent.”

That’s what the Michigan police officer said after purchasing a booster seat for a 5-year-old girl who was riding without a car seat.

This instance of gift-giving began as an ordinary traffic stop. Last Friday, Emmett Township Department of Public Safety Officer Ben Hall stopped a vehicle in the southwest Michigan community after someone reported there was a young child riding without a car seat. Alexis DeLorenzo and her daughter weredriving in the car of a friend who was at the wheel.

When they were stopped, Ms. DeLorenzo grew worried. She thought they were going to get a ticket. She told the officer she had recently fallen on hard times and could not afford a seat for her daughter. Her car had been repossessed with her daughter’s booster seat still inside, Fox 17 News reports.

“We’re living paycheck to paycheck, hand to mouth, borrowing money from friends,” she said.

Instead of writing the woman a ticket, Officer Hall told her to meet him at a Walmart in 15 minutes. There, he bought a booster seat for her daughter. The act “changed my life,” DeLorenzo said. “I’m never going to forget him. And neither will my daughter.”

In an interview, Hall explained how it felt natural to go beyond the call of duty and make a difference in these people’s lives. His words also expressed humility – anybody in his same position would have done what he did, he said.

“A ticket doesn’t solve the situation,” Hall told Fox 17 News. “What solves it is the child being in the booster seat like she should be.”
