How Can We Survive?

Well, here it is 3:00 AM again with me still wide awake; four nights in a row, unable to sleep, or to command my mind to stop thrashing about seeking some clarity amid the chaos of mankind's dark night of the soul. 

I light up another cigarette with bemused disgust, knowing it's bad for my health, knowing it probably makes no difference, considering.

When this Ebola outbreak began I told myself that it was just more of the same old fear pandering we are so accustomed to, tried to pass it off as just that; despite knowing better.

For most of my life I've been prone to psychic flashes, even full-on visions every so often.  The strongest visions have always happened during dream states, but occasionally when I think I'm drifting off for a nap it will blossom into a kind of mini-vision, or lucid daydream.  

It was back in 1979 when I had one of those afternoon mini-visions.  I was living in the Alaska wilderness with my family at the time; and the news was all abuzz about an Ebola outbreak, I think it was in Sudan.  Sitting down to take a break following my afternoon chores; I quickly "nodded off" into one of those visions from the morph, whereupon I "saw" a map of the world showing the Ebola virus spreading from country to country like a wildfire.  I "heard" a voice saying that this is how they will do it - not now, but many years in the future." The vision played on a bit longer, showing the virus covering the earth, and a speeding clicker showing millions of deaths. 

I remember back when Henry Kissinger referred to the masses of world population as "Nothing but useless eaters."  You'd think we'd take the hint and get rid of everyone in power who thinks like that, but no, not us, we just kept grazing away contentedly.  

Back in 1995 we became aware of the aerial spraying program.  Collectively we did nothing about it, left it for someone else to stop and now our skies are filled every day with the poisonous toxic chemtrails.  They tell the school kids the planes are re-building the ozone layer to protect us; but to everyone else they deny everything, and we let them, every damn time

I want to know why?

With the emerging news that there may well be a second, airborne Ebola strain I guess it's safe to say that "Airborne Toxic Event" isn't just a rock group anymore.  Coming soon to a paradigm near you!

We have known for some time now that the Neocons of the NWO fully intend to reduce the human population of Earth to about one fifth it's current number.  One of Kissinger's pals recently even said that it is now cheaper and easier to kill large groups of people than it is to control them.  Still wondering what they have planned?  Naturally, they knew going in there would be mass resistance & protest; which is why they have softened us up with pacification technologies such as chemtrails, HAARP, GWEN towers, fluoridated water, & GMO foods just as appetizers.

The main course is now being served up across the planet: Fukushima/Ebola/Chemtrail cocktail with a Corexit chaser...this is a catered affair with more than enough for everyone; ensuring horrific nightmares for generations to come and a future where genetic mutation will be the norm rather than the exception. 

I hope you like the future they are now implementing, you voted for it with your silence.

TV and media have become the slave master's oracle; telling us how we should feel, and when to feel it, and of course what to think.  Because these ghouls actually feed off the fear they generate, they like to whip us into a frenzy with TV shows like Helix, & The Strain and ads for new movies like Mad Max: Fury Road, and the latest installment in the Hobbit franchise: Battle of the 5 Armies; as preview of the coming attractions they have planned for us in real time.

How can we survive?

We cannot.  But we can transcend it!

Argue in favor of your limitations and you get to keep them.  If you believe that you are your body and there is no way to survive that which I speak of; then the universe will create that reality for you because it thinks that's what you want.  If that isn't what you want, quit thinking it!

Of the steps involved with transcending this genocide of madness, the first is the most important because it requires an expansive adjustment in thinking, and a top down reassessment of your picture of reality.

The Lakota people have within their traditional culture a specialized type of shaman known as Heyoka, the contrarian who speaks and acts in ways opposite of what would be normally expected.  The Heyoka may speak backwards, wear clothing inside out, complain about the heat at night; all as ways to point out the obvious thru satire and wit.  I encountered a little Heyoka spirit in  a recent post I read which talked about the practicing of "crazy wisdom"* in our grappling with emerging planetary disaster; and I found it quite refreshing, even helpful.

For those who still don't believe despite what they see, I suggest you review the track record of the responding government authority to mega-disasters such as Katrina, BP's gulf oil spill, Fukushima, etc.  What they want you to see as merely cosmic level incompetence is actually a planned agenda of allowing, if not creating such disasters to further their goal of depopulation.

This is not the way it is supposed to go down. 
I never heard the words Ebola or Fukushima in that 60's anthem "Aquarius."

In light of the future awaiting us my successes seem inconsequential
and my failures more profound as I seek higher vibrational ground.

The only way out, is in.

In unguarded moments my thoughts are of my daughter and grandchildren in Alaska, just downwind from Fukushima.  She's well aware of the dangers yet elects to remain; a spiritual decision.  I think if I were asked to, I would return to Alaska & join them for the duration.

These days I find myself thinking often of the one great love of my life, wondering where she is and what things her chosen path have brought her, and wondering what will become of her.

My waking nightmares are filled with the utterly detestable violations of human rights around the globe, and our collective indifference to it. 

Will we still be so indifferent when its our lives being snuffed out?

How can we survive our collective apathy and inaction?

I always wanted to be a lighthouse keeper.

May the Source be With You

Marijuana Enlightenment

I didn't trust the process when it first appeared, so I opted out and have been avoiding it ever since.  Even when those around me, including my best friend embraced it; I kept my distance.  For over five years I've refused to climb on the bandwagon; but recently the universal law of three caught up to me, and I finally went to get my medical marijuana card.  Within less than two weeks, three different sources encouraged me to get the card, including my new primary care physician at the VA.  Yup, the universe was speaking to me in no uncertain terms; time to change.

It isn't that I thought the whole idea was wrong or anything, just the opposite; I've been a supporter of legalized marijuana for years, but I don't feel like the government has any right to register me as a cannabis user, (considering how well that went for native Americans!)  If I sound like a dinosaur it's because I've been smoking the weed for almost fifty years, and for the majority of that time doing so illegally.  Not only did many of America's founding fathers grow hemp, for a time it citizens were required to grow hemp.  You see, over the years the U.S. government has had a love/hate relationship with hemp; they want to tie up the ships without turning on the troops.
Cannabis has long been hailed as a medicinal healing herb, in fact the Sears catalog of 1853 carried several cannabis based medicines you could order.  In 1937 the Marijuana Tax Act essentially made using the weed legal, if you had the right paperwork.  This continued till 1969 when it was thrown out because it violated the fifth amendment.  During WWII; American farmers received draft deferments for themselves and their sons; if  they grew hemp.   Henry Ford once designed and made a car out of hemp.  It was 30% lighter and 10 times as strong as steel.  It was never produced because of pressure from the competition, who couldn't compete with it.  For very similar reasoning, the AMA has led the charge against legalizing marijuana, despite evidence that hemp cures cancer.  The pharmaceutical industry isn't interested in a cure for cancer because their profits come from selling treatment, not cures.

There is of course the nobility of smoking marijuana despite it being illegal; as a way to push back against the matrix; but let me just tell you how quickly that wears off and it becomes a constant hassle to avoid legal entanglements.  I always figured that I'd get my medical marijuana card at some point...when it became a necessity.  I haven't needed to have my card until recently due to my connection with a local grow op, which caters exclusively to the dispensaries and clubs.  In return for my help with getting the crop harvested, and security; I got my medical marijuana at a nice discount before it ever got to the retail outlet.  After two years of law enforcement harassment; and defending against crop robbers breaking in, my friend gave up and shut down the grow op a few months ago.  Several other local grow ops have closed for the same reasons; the underworld is getting more dangerous all the time.  Another good reason to go legal!

My interview with the pot doctor was as thorough and professional as I expected.  Eighty bucks and 20 minutes later I was walking into a marijuana dispensary for the first time, all nice and legal.  Many of my friends have described various "pot clubs" to me but even that doesn't prepare one for the real thing.  As a rogue marijuana user I would have to be good friends with at least 20 dealers to have anywhere close to the array and variety of products available at even a modest dispensary.  Most will have a printed menu of their offerings for smoking or vaporizing; as well as a mind boggling selection of marijuana edibles.  Some dispensaries have "vapor rooms" where one may sample the wares prior to purchase.  The phrase "Kid in a candy store" comes to mind.  Since growing your own is part of being legal, some dispensaries also offer cuttings, and starter plants, as well as seeds.  One stop shopping.  On the drive home from the day's adventures, with a nice assortment of marijuana products in the car; there was the unmistakable feeling of something being missing...oh yeah, the apprehension of being busted for carrying weed!  It really is a stay out of jail free card!  Upon stopping at my friends place, he discovered that one of the items he'd purchased didn't make it into his bag.  No worries!  Just call the place up with receipt in hand, and the problem is solved.  Try that with your underground drug dealer!  And yes, getting a receipt for my weed is a very strange experience, but one I'll get used to quickly enough.

The really hilarious side to all this, is even though the mainstream is embracing legalized marijuana, they still want to change all the street lingo to more antiseptic & politically correct terms.  Some folks get downright puffy about using only approved terminology within the establishment of a "club."  You ought not call it Marijuana any longer, the correct term is now Cannabis; likewise weed, bud, & dope is magically transformed to medicine!  It isn't a "pot club" but rather a cannabis collective, or dispensary, and you aren't buying from a dealer but rather donating to a provider/vendor.  Hash is now properly referred to as concentrated cannabis in polite society and when you take your medicine you aren't stoned, baked or fried; your medicated & relaxed.  Don't be requesting Dank, Chronic or Phatt when what you really mean is High Grade Medicine, and remember employees are now volunteers and instead of a manager, the place has a spokesperson.  If you can keep all that straight you should be fine. 

Now that more states are legalizing marijuana, and dispensaries are popping up everywhere, those businesses must be competitive to stay in business; and because of this the dispensaries are becoming better and better every month.  I will admit to laughing a bit when the news came out of Colorado recently about folks having trouble with the marijuana edibles; the chocolates, cookies & brownies.  Some users thought they'd been slipped something like LSD, while others reported they thought they were dying!  Somebody should have told those folks what they were getting into and to go easy at first with any of the edibles, because when eaten marijuana is like five times more potent than if smoked.  Some of us have known this for a while now; and it certainly wouldn't be funny if an unsuspecting child ate an entire medicated candy bar, so, show some responsibility and keep all edible marijuana products away from children of all ages!

I must say that Friday's trip to the pot club made Sunday's 49er game more enjoyable to watch.  Not only were they up against the very quarterback they just traded away, but ya just gotta appreciate a running back named Gore going up against a defensive center named Kilgore.  Then there's the running back named Carrier and the fact that the shadow of the NFL Spider-Cam looks just like a giant ass insect buzzing the players!  Reminds me of something someone once said about fighting in the Vietnam war: "When flying men kill elephants for sport people are just naturally going want to get stoned."  Like many people of my generation, I began smoking marijuana because it seemed a sane response to an increasingly insane world.  Half a century later I am still smoking it for all the same reasons, as well as a few new ones.  Not only does marijuana help me cope with nightmares & memories from Vietnam; it also relieves some symptoms of other health issues folks my age generally have.

Cannabis contains over 80 active compounds known as cannabinoids; the two most important are the THC, and CBD types.  THC is the main psychoactive euphoric ingredient in cannabis.  Medical effects include relief of pain, depression and nausea.  The CBD cannabinoid compound by itself lacks the noticeable effect of "getting high" yet is very good for treating inflammation, muscle spasms, insomnia and anxiety, as well as a wide range of other illnesses.  We are learning important things about marijuana that weren't known even ten years ago, which perhaps is why it has been called the miracle plant.

The legalization of marijuana is possibly the most progressive and enlightened thing modern society has attempted, and is long overdue, if not too late.  Getting the card and going legal is by no means an indication I believe the current social system & government will survive; but rather an indication I want access to the very best pot products available until everything goes mad max on us.  Now all I have to do is get the VA to pay for all my new medicine.
