H1N1 – don’t get the vaccine!

I’m going out on a limb here, forgive me but I share this information as most people believe that vaccinations are necessary and or the law. The media is creating fear, almost hysteria in people about getting the H1N1 flu shot which hasn’t even been properly tested on humans/children and some doctors say it is worse for you than the flu. If you want to educate yourself about the vaccine and not just hear what the drug companies are supplying the newspapers and newscasters, then check out the links below as well as the article about exactly what is in the flu vaccine that isn’t good for our children. Regarding other vaccines.

If you choose to not to continue vaccinating your children after discovering what is in them, you need to get an affadavit signed and given to the Public Health Department and or your school as they will say your child isn’t allowed to go to school unless immunized. This is another fear tactic. The Statement of Conscience and Religious Belief Affadavit is the form you need. See below.

Hi everyone…Dr. Russell Blaylock is a retired neurosurgeon. I’d read what
he has to say about the swine flu vaccine if I were you..Scroll down to read
his article.. Also go to his website (russellblaylockmd.com) and read his
research summaries on the general flu vaccine..

Dear all:
A collegue and friend just returned yesterday from a conference in
Washington with the National vaccine Information Center. Please read this
article and take it very seriously.

Dr. Jordan Plasker
201.5050.WELL(9355)

http://www.drplasker.com

An FYI on swine flu vaccine.

Please read and discuss with your doctor.

A friend sent me an email from Dr. Blaylock, which I have recopied below
along with the link to his bio. I have also included the long article from
his web site.

His email regarding the swine flu read:

“No  one should take this vaccine – it is one of the most dangerous vaccines
ever devised. It contains an immune adjuvant called squalene (MF-59) which
has been shown to cause severe autoimmune disorders such as MS, rheumatoid
arthritis and Lupus. The newsletter for August covers this and it may not be
out yet. This is the vaccine adjuvant that is strongly linked to the Gulf
War syndrome, which killed over 10,000 soldiers and caused a 200% increase
in the fatal disease ALS (Lou Gehreg disease). This virus H1N1 kills by
causing a “cytokine storm”, which means that it causes the body’s immune
system to overreact and that is why it is killing young people and is a mild
disease in the elderly. (The elderly have weakened immune systems) This
vaccine is a very powerful immune stimulator and carries the real
possibility of making the lethality of the virus much greater.

One’s best protection is vitamin D3…One should take  5000 IU a day now and
when the disease begins to spread increase the dose to 15,000 IU a day.
Vitamin D3 modulates the immune reaction, reducing the chance of an
overreaction and stimulates the body to produce what are called
antimicrobial peptides, which are powerful killers of viruses that does not
involve immunity. This is dose related, which means the higher the dose of
D3 the better the protection. Fish oils (the best is Carlson’s Norwegian
lemon flavored fish oil) also reduce immune overreaction. One teaspoon a day
should be sufficient. For severe symptoms, one teaspoon twice a day.
Antioxidants of various kinds also help.

Feel free to spread this around. People need to know to protect themselves.

Dr. Russell Blaylock: Vaccine Maybe More  Dangerous Than Flu

Vaccine May Be More Dangerous Than Swine Flu
Tuesday, July 7, 2009 9:54 AM

By: Dr. Russell Blaylock

An outbreak of swine flu occurred in Mexico this spring that eventually
affected 4,910 Mexican citizens and resulted in 85 deaths. By the time it
spread to the United States, the virus caused only mild cases of flu-like
illness.

Thanks to air travel and the failure of public health officials to control
travel from Mexico, the virus spread worldwide. Despite predictions of
massive numbers of deaths and the arrival of doomsday, the virus has
remained a relatively mild disease, something we know happens each year with
flu epidemics.

Worldwide, there have only been 311 deaths out of 70,893 cases of swine flu.
In the United States, 27,717 cases have resulted in 127 deaths. Every death
is a tragedy, but such a low death rate should not be the basis of a
draconian government  policy.

It is helpful to recall that the Centers for Disease Control with the
collusion of the media, constantly tell us that 36,000 people die from the
flu each year, a figure that has been shown to be a lie. In this case, we
are talking about 300 plus deaths for the entire world.

This virus continues to be an enigma for virologists. In the April 30, 2009
issue of Nature, a virologist was quoted as saying,”Where the hell it got
all these genes from we don’t know.” Extensive analysis of the virus found
that it contained the original 1918 H1N1 flu virus, the avian flu virus
(bird flu), and two new H3N2 virus genes from Eurasia. Debate continues over
the possibility that swine flu is a genetically engineered virus.

Naturally, vaccine manufacturers have been in a competitive battle to
produce the first vaccine. The main contenders have been Baxter
Pharmaceuticals and Novartis Pharmaceuticals, the latter of  which recently
acquired the scandal-ridden Chiron vaccine company. Both of these companies
have had agreements with the World Health Organization to produce a pandemic
vaccine.

The Baxter vaccine, called Celvapan, has had fast track approval. It uses a
new vero cell technology, which utilizes cultured cells from the African
green monkey. This same animal tissue transmits a number of
vaccine-contaminating viruses, including the HIV virus.

The Baxter company has been associated with two deadly scandals. The first
event occurred in 2006 when hemophiliac components were contaminated with
HIV virus and injected in tens of thousands of people, including thousands
of children. Baxter continued to release the HIV contaminated vaccine even
after the contamination was known.

The second event occurred recently when it was discovered that Baxter had
released a seasonal flu vaccine containing the bird flu virus,  which would
have produced a real world pandemic, to 18 countries. Fortunately, astute
lab workers in the Czech Republic discovered the deadly combination and blew
the whistle before a worldwide disaster was unleashed.

Despite these two deadly events, WHO maintains an agreement with Baxter
Pharmaceuticals to produce the world’s pandemic vaccine.

Novartis, the second contender, also has an agreement with WHO for a
pandemic vaccine. Novartis appears to have won the contract, since their
vaccine is near completion. What is terrifying is that these pandemic
vaccines contain ingredients, called immune adjuvants that a number of
studies have shown cause devastating autoimmune disorders, including
rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis and lupus.

Animal studies using this adjuvant have found them to be deadly. A study
using 14 guinea pigs found that when they were injected with the special
adjuvant, only  one animal survived. A repeat of the study found the same
deadly outcome.

So, what is this deadly ingredient? It is called squalene, a type of oil.
The Chiron company, maker of the deadly anthrax vaccine, makes an adjuvant
called MF-59 which contains two main ingredients of concernqualene and
gp120. A number of studies have shown that squalene can trigger all of the
above-mentioned autoimmune diseases when injected.

The MF-59 adjuvant has been used in several vaccines. These vaccines,
including tetanus and diphtheria, are the same vaccines frequently
associated with adverse reactions.

I reviewed a number of studies on this adjuvant and found something quite
interesting. Several studies done on human test subjects found MF-59 to be a
very safe immune adjuvant. But when I checked to see who did these studies,
I foundo no surprisehat they were done by the Novartis Pharmaceutical
Company and Chiron Pharmaceutical Company, which have merged. They were all
published in “prestigious” medical journals. Also, to no surprise, a great
number of studies done by independent laboratories and research institutions
all found a strong link between MF-59 and autoimmune diseases.

Squalene in vaccines has been strongly linked to the Gulf War Syndrome. On
August 1991, Anthony Principi, Secretary of Veterans Affairs admitted that
soldiers vaccinated with the anthrax vaccine from 1990 to 1991 had an
increased risk of 200 percent in developing the deadly disease amyotrophic
lateral sclerosis (ALS), also called Lou Gehrig’s disease. The soldiers also
suffered from a number of debilitating and life-shortening diseases, such as
polyarteritis nodosa, multiple sclerosis (MS), lupus, transverse myelitis (a
neurological disorder caused by inflammation of the spinal cord),
endocarditis (inflammation of the heart’s inner lining), optic  neuritis with
blindness and glomerulonephritis (a type of kidney disease).

Because squalene, the main ingredient in MF-59, can induce hyperimmune
responses and induce autoimmunity, a real danger exists for prolonged
activation of the brain’s immune cells, the microglia. This type of
prolonged activation has been strongly associated with such diseases as
multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, ALS and
possibly vaccine-related encephalitis. It has been shown that activation of
the systemic immune system, as occurs with vaccination, rapidly activates
the brain’s microglia at the same time, and this brain inflammation can
persist for long periods.

So, how would the gp120 get into the brain? Studies of other immune
adjuvants using careful tracer techniques have shown that they routinely
enter the brain following vaccination. What most people do not know, even
the doctors who recommend  the vaccines, is that most such studies by
pharmaceutical companies observe the patients for only one to two weeks
following vaccinationhese types of reactions may take months or even years
to manifest.

It is obvious that the vaccine manufacturers stand to make billions of
dollars in profits from this WHO/government-promoted pandemic. Novartis, the
maker of the new pandemic vaccine, recently announced that they would not
give free vaccines to impoverished nationsverybody pays.

One must keep in mind that once the vaccine is injected, there is little you
can do to protect yourselft least by conventional medicine. It will mean a
lifetime of crippling illness and early death.

There are much safer ways to protect oneself from this flu virus, such as
higher doses of vitamin D3, selective immune enhancement using supplements,
and a good diet.

Dr. Vinay Goyal is  an MBBS,DRM,DNB (Intensivist and Thyroid specialist)
having clinical experience of over 20 years. He has worked in institutions
like Hinduja Hospital, Bombay Hospital ,Saifee Hospital ,Tata Memorial etc.
Presently, he is heading the Nuclear Medicine Department and Thyroid clinic
at Riddhivinayak Cardiac and Critical Centre, Malad (W).   The following
message given by him:

————————–

The only portals of entry are the nostrils and mouth/throat. In a global
epidemic of this nature, it’s almost impossible to avoid coming into contact
with H1N1 in spite of all precautions. Contact with H1N1 is not so much of a
problem as proliferation is.

While you are still healthy and not showing any symptoms of H1N1 infection,
in order to prevent proliferation, aggravation of symptoms and development
of secondary infections, some  very simple steps, not fully highlighted in
most official communications, can be practiced (instead of focusing on how
to stock N95 or Tamiflu):

1. Frequent hand-washing (well highlighted in all official communications).

2. “Hands-off-the-face” approach. Resist ALL temptations to touch any part
of face (unless you want to eat, bathe or slap).

3. *Gargle twice a day with warm salt water (use Listerine if you don’t
trust salt). *H1N1 takes 2-3 days after initial infection in the throat/
nasal cavity to proliferate and show characteristic symptoms. Simple
gargling prevents proliferation. In a way, gargling with salt water has the
same effect on a healthy individual that Tamiflu has on an infected one.
Don’t underestimate this simple, inexpensive and powerful preventative
method.  NOTE: (He does not say to use sea salt,  but rather regular salt.)

4. Similar to 3 above, *clean your nostrils at least once every day with
warm salt water.  Blowing the nose hard once a day and swabbing both
nostrils with cotton buds dipped in warm salt water is very effective in
bringing down viral population.*

5. *Boost your natural immunity with foods that are rich in Vitamin C (Amla
and other citrus fruits). *If you have to supplement with Vitamin C tablets,
make sure that it also has Zinc to boost absorption.

6. *Drink as much of warm liquids (tea, coffee, etc) as you can. *Drinking
warm liquids has the same effect as gargling, but in the reverse direction.
They wash off proliferating viruses from the throat into the stomach where
they cannot survive, proliferate or do any  harm.

The Altar of This Moment

The Altar of This Moment

red oak leaf

Place everything you can perceive—
Everything you can
See,
Hear,
Smell,
Taste,
Or touch,
Upon the altar of this moment
And give thanks.
It is over so soon—
This expression,
This single moment of your precious life,
This one heart
pounding itself open
with fear or wild joy,

This one breath rising
in the cold winter air
smoothly and gently
or coughing and sputtering,

Bow, while you can, before
This one taste
Of afternoon tea
Warming its way to your belly,
Or the fragrant orange
exploding its sweet juice
in your grateful mouth.

You have to love
The antics of your mind,
Imagining life should only be sweet.
The bitter makes the sweet; and life is both.
It is whole, like you,
Before you think yourself to pieces.

Place this moment’s pain and confusion on the altar, too,
And give special thanks for such grace
That wakes you up from sleeping through your life.
Pain is greatly under-rated as a pointer to Unknowing,
yet greatly over-rated when taken as identity.

In this one moment,
Your eyes meet mine and there is
a single looking.
What is peering from behind our masks?
Can it touch itself across the room?

Place your palms together;
Touch your holy skin.
In another moment it will shed itself.
What will you be then?
What were you before you had two hands?
What are you now?

You cannot capture That
and place It on the altar of this moment.
It is the altar,
And this moment’s infinite expressions,
And the Seeing,
And its own devotion to itself.

You are That.

What?

What is not doing anything? What is not striving, seeking, looking, wanting, needing, believing?

The whole grasping energy inside….. what is that? IS the grasping or clinging of a spiritual person clinging to the ‘idea’ of belief of God any different that the energy or grasping of a person wanting a new car to complete their life?

Feel inside and think of something that you want.. what does it feel like inside? Now think of a spiritual desire if you have any…. does the basic energy feel any different?

On spiritual paths, it is easy for people to think they are ‘better’ than others who are not on a spiritual path-  consciously or unconsciously.  Check inside and see.  OMG I grew a huge spiritual ego that fueled my life for years and got me ‘nowhere’ hohoho.

Pull out all the weeds and what remains?

Christmas Day, what is it for YOU?

A ramble to myself from the Self.

I was driving to a friend’s house for a wonderful crepe breakfast this morning, Christmas Eve day, and was wondering about what does Christmas mean to me or other people? We take it for granted as a day to give gifts, see our families and eat a feast together. But is there anything more to it? I used to go to church regularly as a young adult, I was really into mystical Christianity. More like experience God rather than just believe in someone else’s ideas about God.

Winter Wonderland

At this point in my life, (30 years later), I see Christmas as an invitation to connect to let the love that IS here and be born more deeply in my everyday life, especially in relation to all my human-ness and conditioned ‘hell’ that I inherited and lived.

Go for it! Don’t hide anymore. I resonate with love in relationships, family, friends and teachers, but how about resonate with the LOVE that is silently witnessing THIS life………HERE NOW … inside? I see/feel love in another’s eyes…….. have i noticed the love coming out of THESE EYES? Can I allow myself the noticing…… of that LOVE that is LOOKING out of these eyes to turn in? Can I allow everything = all the ^%^%^%$ from God knows where……to Rest in the simplicity….. the Love under it all.

Merry Christmas ! Merry Truth! Merry the LOVE that could perhaps Simply ….BE … You !
May it blossom fully fully and more fully every moment of every day.



Yoga because i simply enjoy it!

For 30 years I’ve been waking up with the thought I should meditate and do asanas(postures). That is alot of stress to have that for so long every single morning all these years. I had periods when I would get up at 4am, 5am, 6am and do many hours – to now…. I would say my formal practice has been non-existent this past couple of summer months. I just realized yesterday that it has been 30 years! What about waking up and not having that ‘should’ present anywhere in my mind whether conscious or unconscious?

I’ve been feeling inner division alot…. the old part thinks i should be doing yoga whether it it meditating or asanas, the fresh part that has accomplished sooo much in the relative world these past few months, is relaxed and enjoying life in whatever I am doing. I have wondered if there is something wrong with me because I am not meditating, am I afraid of something, is there somewhere inside sabatoging the Truth here?

Today I am noticing that because I’ve seen the absolute impossibility of any yoga practice bringing one to true ‘awakening’ or enlightenment, then why do it is one thought thread I’ve had inside this summer since going to a 5 day silent retreat in June with Adyashanti. The absolute hopelessness, complete impossibility and the deep utter failure of the so called ‘you’ ,,,,, ‘attaining anything’ in the spiritual realm.

It is all a set-up for failiure. I’m not talking about gaining experiences that come and go.

How about practicing yoga not for any goal in the future? How about practicing yoga because something here simply enjoys it!!!! How about simply for the love of IT!

Yahoo! What freedom… I can’t even describe it! Or I could say that maybe it feels like a kid jumping off our tower into the pond.

Human Being Human….or Human being Spiritual!

The LOVE which i have flown all over the world to sit at various teacher’s/guru’s feet is available right here – in everyone I meet, in my children, husband, students…. the distinction between human and spiritual is falling away…..

This is a note to my Self from my Self.

dscf3424.jpg

Yes to BEING HUMAN! Ever thought about the words ‘Human Being’ ? Who picked the word ‘being’ to go after ‘human’ ? I think they were smarter than most notice. How about meditate on the words ‘human BEING’ instead of a some sanskrit mantra some teacher thinks is going to give you salvation. Is it possible that the answer could be truly SIMPLE and already right here in our human-ness? DO we have to go to India (which i have done 3 times) on a spiritual quest, get sick, recite mantra, practice meditation, pranayam , asanas, rituals etc for year s on end… ultimately loosing site of the original goal….. just continuing to slave away at what i think or believe is important…….

How about starting where YOU ARE rather than for years trying to ‘get somewhere’, or be something else – that someone has told you you should strive for…. or fit a mold you read about in a so called spiritual book…or believe they all are smarter, know what is best, are holier and more pure and worthy than you and follow and imitate them as if you are a frigging grovelling idiot ?

I think i began treading the so called spiritual path due to not wanting to feel the pain that was threatening to explode inside…. I suppose there were other reasons.. but avoiding life i now realize was a big part of my ‘so called spiritual life’. You might think i sound kind of cynical or something… but it is more that i just don’t buy it all anymore….

I used to divide my life into – this is spiritual – that is not…. seems like…. I’m discovering what it is to BE in this human form….. if that makes any sense…. a big huge laugh…….Ok…. more is falling away and opening up.

It seems that as the fear drops away to simply feel and notice all that I’ve feared, love and compassion appears. Being spiritual is not separate from being human anymore….. meditating because I was trying to not feel the pain inside or because i was escaping into a trance state to help me not feel what is here is not the answer for me anymore. I know it is believed to be the answer for many, but I am discovering that the more human i allow myself to be, the more I drop into all that is feared, the more love appears.

In trying to be spiritual – I discounted or ignored what was truly here. Only for my whole life. What a hoot to discover. What a relief…. the jewel really always was here, is here…..

A tender flower delicately blooming, spreading open its petals… completely…simply…. expanding – discovering Love….Space Simply Being Human.

New eyes opening.

New Year’s Resolution

Nothing about you has to change.
The only thing that has to change
Is that you stop trying to change.
Then your true nature can spontaneously come forth.

My being and your being is the same being.

Think this: what if there was no such thing as a true thought?

©Adyashanti

I opened up this morning a beautiful pamphlet of Adya’s called ‘Emptiness Becomes Love’ and the above quotes spoke to me.

May you recognise the Truth that is born in each moment

Happy New Year whatever that means for YOU.

Rumi and the dishes!

Dishes and Laundry are like thoughts, they never stop or go away!

The Guest House

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.

Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
Rumi

Can we treat the dishes like an honourable guest?

The more I resist the normal household duties, the more heaviness and inertia come in.

Oh, I think I’ll just go and have a nap rather than do the dishes for example. But this doesn’t make the dishes go away, which is what something inside thinks it wants. It just makes the resistance/suffering grow bigger. Just like the pile of dishes that grows every day of not dealing with them! Just as everything we try and hide from inside grows bigger and will continue to influence us consciously or not…… until we stop, take notice and let BE.

If the dishes for example can be done or not done in the space of a 5 year old playing with bubbles and the miraculousness of IT all……noticing the energy of joy that underneath in the clean dishes or dirty…..or I could put it this way……let a ‘doing’ without the sticking to the ‘thinking commentary in the head happen…..or let a ‘doing’ without believing the continuous commentary in the head……

What do you think…..is that enlightenment? hohohohoho

My sadhana (spiritual practice) often is to notice the resistance to the dishes , drop into it physically in the body, feel the energy inside and get to know what it is all about. Let IT inform me. The part (or habit or movement of energy) that has been addicted to pain and suffering loves the resistance and attempts to keep it going by letting the pile grow bigger.

If i stop and notice…. what is not resisting the dishes? Hang out in THAT!
I’ve noticed if I do the dishes with something inside sticking to the thinking thoughts that are usually judgements, or wishing to be somewhere else kind of feel = suffering.

If I simply do the dishes then all is ok. It is like the ‘me’ isn’t’ doing them. If the ‘me’ commenting is in the driving seat, then the energy of resistance or suffering enters in.

If i wait until the energy comes to do them rather than forcing the issue….than all is ok. Even feeling the resistance is ok. Can’t even resist the resistance as it is often HERE.

I’ve discovered that if I do the dishes when the energy is simply present to do them… it is different than believing that I have to do them right now….

There appears to be kind of a free feeling inside, when i am not stuck in the resistance of dishes, dinner, laundry etc. Believe it or not when doing the household duties lately, I’ve noticed a real laughing space of peace – . Can’t say always… but moments are peeking through more often. When there are no distractions it becomes like a meditation. Meditation on dishes or no dishes! Is there any difference?

.Dishes are like thoughts…..

And then….. not even labeling dishes, negative feelings, patterns as distractions, or bad…just what is arising…

For me the important thing seems to be to STOP and NOTICE! Do I want to live with suffering/resisting inside driving every living moment of life or freedom in the driving seat? WOW!!!

Thoughts/feelings/patterns come up and can be noticed without the ‘stickiness’ more of a ‘oh what is this’ or ‘here you are again’ as Rumi said in his exquisite poem. They pass through or get stuck like a huge pile of dishes that grows and the more the ‘I’ takes ownership, the more pain…..

yahoo! the sink is clean today!

off to learn how to downhill ski …ahahahah theres an interesting place to see  fears emerge – as i’m screaming down the hill in snowplow!!

Enlightenment – Simply Resting!

Don’t Miss the Stop Sign written by Mukti

Landscape by MuktiEnlightenment is consciously being that which is entirely unmoving and yet moves all things. In order to know what is unmoving, consciously, one must end all investment in movements of mind and attend to what is always and already stopped.

When one no longer invests in movements of mind, the searchlights of your attention withdraw back to source. Abiding as source is true stopping.

This return to source—whether by letting energies withdraw and recede from outer attentions or by tracing movements of mind back to their origin—is the way Home.

Often in spirituality, there are teachings that assert the need to focus attention on given objects of perception. You may have been taught to focus your attention on a goal, a mantra, your breath, the third eye, the hara, or on sensation, but it is the very assertion of focus and the assertion of the focuser, the “me,” that keeps you forever at a seeming distance from the root of attention: your Self as pure Awareness.

In your natural state as Oneness, there is no need to focus in order to discover yourself—any more than point A can know itself by focusing on point B. Point A can only know itself by letting all focus, attention, and searching subside back to its origin.

This is an open invitation for a simple resting, a return to the ground of being you have always known. ©Adyashanti

Pecan Puffs – Grandmother’s recipe for enlightened taste buds!

My Nana used to make these over 40 years ago and I admit I make them every year for the family.

Her old cookbook describes them as RICH and DEVASTATING and it is true. They are also very easy to make. I challenge you to meditate on the flavour of these! Also…. when you are rolling out the cookies…. only roll one at a time….. there…. another Christmas meditation for you….hohoho!
Since I am immersed in the baking of cookies and wrapping presents, thought I’d share this recipe. I love the simplicity of the recipe and I usually triple the recipe and they turn out just fine.

Here is my daughter who loves these cookies. Her big brother took this picture. She had just had a make=-up lesson from the big girls at dance class.
