Sen Tester Kills Monsanto Protection Rider
by Karen from Maui Sep 25, 2013 12:06pm PDT
Despite the efforts of House members like Rep Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) to kill the Monsanto Protection Rider, it passed in the House version of the short-term appropriations bill, the Continuing Resolution (CR).

Today the Senate was successful in stripping this provision out of the CR.

According to Sen Brian Schatz (D-HI)

“The Monsanto Protection Act is bad policy for the country and the State of Hawai‘i. The Senate version of the Continuing Resolution does not include this provision, effectively repealing the Monsanto Protection Act. This provision took the ability of the Secretary of Agriculture to fully exercise his regulatory power over GMOs, and compromised the role of our courts as a check on the legislative and executive systems, making it significantly more difficult for concerned citizens to present their case.
I strongly urge the House not to sneak the Monsanto Protection Act back into the final version of the appropriations bill. However, if it is slipped back in, rather than letting the issue be deliberated with full transparency and public input, I will immediately introduce legislation to repeal it.”

Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT), a farmer himself said:
Stripping the Monsanto Protection Act is a victory for American consumers and family farm agriculture. Corporate giveaways have no business in a bill to fund the government, and I’m pleased that the Senate stood up for accountability and transparency and against special interests. I look forward to continuing to work with Senator Schatz to make sure that this damaging provision never again makes it into law.”
Hawai’i has been called “ground zero” for GMO/Agricultural Chemicals development. Its mild climate allows two growing seasons and its small legislature is easily bought out. In fact only 10 members of the Hawai’i legislature are notrecipients of GMO/Chem money.
The GMO seed companies such as Monsanto, Syngenta, Bayer, and Dupont are the biggest agricultural chemical manufacturers. Their controversial claims of GMO seeds cutting down on pesticides are exactly opposite of reality. According to Organic Consumers herbicides account for about one-third of the global pesticide market, and around 80% of GM seeds involve herbicide-resistance.

Agriculture chemicals have poisoned aquifers on Oahuand Maui.

Kaua’i now has a bill pending that would require companies like Syngenta to disclose what pesticides they are spraying. Kaua’i residents are concerned not only with existing EPA registered pesticides but the experiments with the unregistered pesticides these GMO companies are developing.

Fruit and Nut Burfi, an Indian-Style Fudge

Fruit and Nut Burfi

Desi has a monster sweet tooth and I try as much as possible to keep it happy with homemade goodies like this Fruit and Nut Burfi. Made with no added sugar and with the wholesome goodness of dry fruits and nuts, this is a treat that’s not just delicious but also as healthy as a sweet can get.

Burfi, for those of you unfamiliar with the word, is an Indian-style fudge. If you were to walk into a sweets store in India, you’d find yourself face to face with burfis in every color of the rainbow. Burfis, like fudge, are cloyingly sweet and they are mostly made with milk or nuts. Because they are eaten on special occasions, they are almost as a rule cooked with ghee.

Fruits and nuts
My very vegan Fruit and Nut Burfi is blissfully dairy-free. I had some beautiful dates gifted by my friend Margo that I wanted to use for something special, and I always have figs and almonds on hand because Desi loves chopping some into his breakfast each morning. Into all of this fruity goodness I stirred in some almonds and walnuts. And instead of ghee, I used some delicious coconut oil which, like ghee, thickens at room temperature, helping the burfi firm up, and adds amazing flavor.

This is a very simple recipe with just six ingredients, and there is not much that can go wrong — it’s almost fool-proof. But there is a little hard labor involved in stirring up the fruit and nut paste until it’s cooked, about 25 minutes altogether. To my mind, that’s not a high price for a lot of deliciousness.

News Flash — CIA Invents “CONSPIRACY THEORY” | Thrive by Foster Gamble

It is a little-known though well-documented fact that the origin of the campaign to ridicule research into conspiracies wasinitiated by the CIA in 1967 to undermine the credibility of those who questioned the official claims of the Warren Commission regarding the so-called facts of the Kennedy assassination.

Given the challenge we and others feel when speaking out about conspiracies, I think Lance deHaven-Smith is right when, in his new bookConspiracy Theory, he suggests “the CIA’s [covert and illegal] campaign to popularize the term ‘conspiracy theory’ and make conspiracy belief a target of ridicule and hostility must be credited…with being one of the most successful propaganda initiatives of all time…”

Of course not all proclaimed conspiracies are true. There are competent conspiracy analysts and incompetent ones, just as there are skilled and shoddy reporters, historians or practitioners of any discipline.

What Does “Conspiracy” Actually Mean?

The Merriam Webster dictionary defines “conspire”as: “to plot, to contrive, to scheme — to join in a secret agreement to do an unlawful or wrongful act.”

It is well documented that many conspiracy theories are true. (See resources below.)

Energetic Synthesis – Bifurcation of Time Lisa Renee September 2013

Dear Ascending Family,
Bifurcation means the splitting of a main body into two parts. In the mathematical study of change that occurs within a structure or space, bifurcation occurs when a parameter change causes the stability of an equilibrium (or fixed point in a field) to change. The comprehension of the mathematical change that is currently shifting the geometric value of frequency, which further, generates abifurcation in the structure of time and space, is very relevant to us now. This is directly related to the forthcoming split occurring between timelines which govern our continued consciousness (energy) expression on the earth plane as it is moving into future time. Thus, the planetary fields and humanity are coming to experience the next phase of the planetary Ascension cycle, which is the nature ofBifurcation of Time. For many years the sequential phase of gradually increasing the frequency sets on the earth is the byproduct of Stellar and Solar Activations transmitting frequency to the planet (and humanity) during the Ascension Cycle. The accumulation of progressively increasing frequency being integrated into the overall planetary

Think With Your Heart | Healing to Whole: the birth (part II)

Healing to Whole: the birth (part II)

BY LAUREN ONSEPTEMBER 7, 2013 ·156 COMMENTS · INTHE 5D REPORT

PageLines- 5DreportLOGO.gifIf you are reading this, even if prone, kudos to you just for making it to September.

Because of the way 2013 opened for me personally, with the sudden and unexpected passing of my mother, I had a very strong feeling…despite all the magical things I was hearing and being shown from the higher realms…that the entire year was going to, yet again, mimic the last 13. Of course, I didn’t want to admit/accept/surrender to that knowing, but it was definitely there.

What I didn’t expect, is that this year would/could possibly feel any worse than 2012, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2 or 1.

Because the ascension volume was turned up so LOUD this year, and because each successive month has been more excruciating than the last, for the first time on this whole journey, I literally couldn’t see how I would get to September. And at times, I was so deflated that I wasn’t even sure I wanted to.

But somehow, someway, I/you/we did. And that alone deserves a giant (soul) group hug because f.i.n.a.l.l.y, a tiny flickering light at the end of an unacceptably long and dark tunnel is beginning to emerge.

In case you hadn’t noticed, we have been anesthetized under the veil of forgetfulness (separation) again…pretty much non-stop since the last (and second) grand sextile/merkaba activation on August 25th. Some say longer, but the point is that if you are here now, you are well on your way to returning/reconnecting/recalibrating to your true (power) Source as the final stages of assimilation from that recent energy blast stabilizes and takes hold within our physical cells. And yes, that integration period was another EPIC one.

This is a random non-sequitor, but each time we reemerge from these clearings after a major rewire, I marvel at the seeming similarities to dementia…where I eventually return to a state of full consciousness after a usually lonnnng period of memory (of home) loss, distinct (karmic patterning) personality changes, and impaired (limited) reasoning. Makes you wonder.

Part II of this 2-part series is aptly subtitledthe birth because, according to the voices in me head, we are gearing up for what Pleiadian High Council calls the “soul merge”, which is the last (?) requirement to step fully into the new world. This sacred (masculine/feminine) merge will apparently propel us into the unified state of being we have been working so unbelievably hard to attain, what they callthe soul’s complete expression of self.

I am also hearing that this meeting of the sacred mindsprecipitates the separation of worlds(within), and will enable us to drop a ton of old/karmic baggage which ultimately grants us the ability to uphold 5D+ as our resolute reality.omgyesssspleeeez Can you even imagine what it would be like to NOT carry around the accumulated weight of our personal pasts??? Without it, there is literally nothing to weigh us down…no wonder the unseens say we will no longer be bound by gravity.

In the super insightful words of Stephanie Azaria: karma IS gravity! That brilliance has never been more apparent to me than right now.

Anyway, before I break this information down into bite size pieces, let me first present you with the Pleiadian perspective of what the potential of this month in particular holds for us…

Tho September is always a month of major review, contemplation, and ultimately the integration of all we have been growing into during the 9-month gestation journey that we embark upon every calendar year, I am also hearing that this month we begin to solidify (birth) our 5D experience and that before us are some openings that will precipitate both a major ending and simultaneous new beginning.

The PHC say that we are going to be bothcompleting a level of incarnation, as well as beginning a new incarnation. This present incarnation experience I am told, will end with our soul’s merge into unity, and our new incarnation will begin with our connection to the full truth of who we are. Pretty trippy.

This ending that we are referring to is one of great magnitude. It is not only the end of a major phase in your earthly life, it is the end of an accumulation of many lifetimes, for many souls here, in what we would call…the lower world of form.

Once you release yourself from the lower world, you will be able to maintain the unified, LOVE-filled consciousness, in every delightful cell of your radiant being. –PHC
