Seeing that everybody, gods of the world and mankind, says that nothing existed prior to chaos, I, in distinction to them, shall demonstrate that they are all mistaken, because they are not acquainted with the origin of chaos, nor with its root. Here is the demonstration.
How well it suits all men, on the subject of chaos, to say that it is a kind of darkness! But in fact it comes from a shadow, which has been called by the name ‘darkness’. And the shadow comes from a product that has existed since the beginning. It is, moreover, clear that it existed before chaos came into being, and that the latter is posterior to the first product. Let us therefore concern ourselves with the facts of the matter; and furthermore, with the first product, from which chaos was projected. And in this way the truth will be clearly demonstrated.
After the natural structure of the immortal beings had completely developed out of the infinite, a likeness then emanated from Pistis (Faith); it is called Sophia (Wisdom). It exercised volition and became a product resembling the primeval light. And immediately her will manifested itself as a likeness of heaven, having an unimaginable magnitude; it was between the immortal beings and those things that came into being after them, like […]: she (Sophia) functioned as a veil dividing mankind from the things above.

Birds and butterflies
Rivers and mountains she creates
But you’ll never know
The next move she’ll make
You can try
But it is useless to ask why
Cannot control her
She goes her own way Continue reading Within Temptation – Mother Earth
Dr. Paul is one of my heroes. He is a shining example of how one solitary voice can inspire and bring necessary change. He is nearly single-handedly leading the charge to address the perversion that multi-national corporations have done to the U.S. government.
Not only has Dr. Paul been making quite an impression during the recent Republican presidential debates, he’s also introduced a bill that would strongly and positively affect Mercola.com and many other natural health organizations and advocates, and the field of natural health in general. Continue reading Dr. Mercola on Ron Paul
During the recent GOP debate the discussion touched on a variety of subjects such as: abortion, war, health care, road infrastructure, and the “fair” tax. The first part of the debate focused on abortion the Neocon’s war in Iraq, in the latter minutes of the debate the debate focused on taxation.
Most of the candidates backed “the decider,” while Ron Paul was the only candidate who expressed his disagreement with the unconstitutional wars in a meaningful and consistent manner. Interestingly, Tom Tancredo re-asserted his view that bombing Moslem holy sites in the wake of a nuclear strike on the united States of America would be helpful.

video: Jim Mattatall addresses The Granada Forum on the Income Tax
In this video, Jim Mattatall addresses The Granada Forum, providing irrefutable evidence which proves that the so-called “income taxes” are voluntary. He explains the fact that the authority of the United States government, with regard to the Internal Revenue Code and the Constitution, only gives Internal Revenue power over D.C., Guam, Puerto Rico, Federal Buildings, National Parks, etc (insular possessions of the United States).
It is also interesting to note that the monies collected by Internal Revenue are required, by law, to be given to the Treasury of the United States, not an agent of Federal Reserve or Puerto Rico Trust #62 (Internal Revenue).
Indeed this organization is operating outside of its lawful bounds, as it has no authority to unwittingly rob the sweat equity from the citizens of the united States of America, though it does have the lawful authority to tax citizens of the United States. If we read the Constitution we can see who is a citizen of the United States, and is therefore subject to the so-called income tax.

video: Police State & Critical Mass in New York
WeAreChange.org attends a Critical Mass gathering in New York City during the summer. Critical Mass started in 1992 in San Francisco as an organized event to promote bicycle transportation but has evolved over the years as a loose gathering of people who enjoy biking, roller blading and other means of alternative transportation. Throughout the years a central location and time have been established in cities around the world and therefore there is no need for an organizer. Since 2006 the mainstream press has attempted to define Critical Mass as a “demonstration”. They also call it “monthly political-protest rides” despite the absence of signs or speeches. Read more here. Continue reading Police State & Critical Mass in New York
Recently a Chiropractor I have been seeing, who happens to be well versed in the eastern art of Chi cultivation, told me of a man named Mantak Chia, who wrote the books: Awaken Healing Energy Through the Tao, Taoist Ways to Transform Stress into Vitality and Awaken Healing Light of the Tao.
The following is excerpted from the books listed:
Preparation for Chi Cultivation
Wait at least an hour after eating to begin the practice.
Choose a quiet spot. Later on (as you become more experienced) you will be able to practice almost anywhere with any noise.
Dress warmly enough not to be chilled.
Sit comfortably near the edge of your chair with your feet flat on the floor. Keep your back straight, but not stiff. Stay relaxed, and clasp your hands together in your lap, left palm on bottom, right palm on top.
Close your eyes and become aware of the soles of your feet. Feel their connection to the ground and the energy of the earth.
Create a source of smiling energy up to three feet in front of you. This can be an image of your own smiling face, or of someone or something you love and respect, or any memory of a time in which you felt deeply at peace, perhaps feeling sunshine, being by the ocean, or walking in a forest.
Become aware of the midpoint between your eyebrows through which you will draw this abundant smiling energy in front of and around you. Let your forehead relax, and allow the Third Eye to open. As the smiling energy accumulates at the mid-eyebrow, it will eventually overflow into your body. Continue reading Chi Cultivation: Awakening the Healing Energy Within
