Rumi (1207-1273) was a 13th-century Persian poet, Islamic scholar, theologian, and Sufi mystic. Over the past seven centuries, his influence has transcended international borders and ethnic divisions, and his poems have been widely translated into many of the world’s languages and transposed into various formats. Often described as the “most popular poet” and the “best selling poet” in the United States.
His poems and quotes are some of the most favored amongst spiritual communities, but the lesser-known inspiration and spiritual influence of Rumi’s work comes from his mentor – a man named Shams-i-Tabrīzī (1185-1248). Continue reading 20 Powerful Quotes From Rumi’s Spiritual Teacher, Shams Tabrizi

I’m in the midst of a realization, though taking the time out to record it may end it, for now.
It began when I noticed, in meditation, that I could at that moment simultaneously access all the moments in my life when I felt transformative love, bliss, joy, and all the other divine qualities.
It was as if, when I breathed in and out, a wind would pass through me containing a mixture of all these good things, rather than just one of them at a time.
And then I realized: I could see, at this moment, no natural, internal barriers. I have no barriers to any of my previous experiences – with lovers, on travels, on projects. I can access them all, at one and the same time. Continue reading No Natural Barriers

(ANTIMEDIA) On Friday morning, a large-scale hack of an internet domain hosting provider took prominent websites including Netflix, Amazon, Reddit, Twitter, and Vox offline.

(ANTIMEDIA) Beijing — As Anti-Media has covered in recent days, controversial Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, along with hundreds of Filipino business leaders, is visiting China this week in a move aimed at strengthening regional ties between the two countries.
On Tuesday, we reported that, for all intents and purposes, the United States had lost the Philippines to China as an ally, with President Duterte saying during his visit that “It’s only China that can help us” and “I just want to talk with China” on the issue of the South China Sea.

Spinal cord injury can have devastating, and often irreversible effects. Conventional treatment relies on steroid drugs and surgery with lackluster results. What if an extract of turmeric works better, and is safer?
A promising new study published in the journal ‘Neurology Research International’, entitled “The Potential of Curcumin In Treatment of Spinal Cord Injury”, suggests that the ancient Indian spice turmeric, and its primary polyphenol curcumin, may provide victims of spinal cord injury (SCI) a safer and more effective approach than conventional treatment which relies primarily on surgery and corticosteroids, a class of anti-inflammatory drugs notorious for adverse health effects. Continue reading Turmeric Heals Spinal Cord Injuries Better Than Drugs and Surgery, Review Suggests

It’s inspiring to witness many of the earth’s people, especially in the Western world, becoming aware of the deep corruption in our social system, particularly because society is building its innate capacity to actually do something about it.
More and more people now understand that we are ruled via a corporatocracy where the money supply, banking, governmental policy and other vital public infrastructure has been hijacked by the oligarchs and the corporate elite. Continue reading The World is Waking Up and it’s Magic to Watch

Geo-engineering, a term to describe the deliberate and large-scale intervention into the earth’s climatic system. 10 years ago the concept of chemtrails and weather modification was scoffed at as conspiracy, now it’s becoming more a reality every day.
We’ve covered the geo-engineering reality in depth over the years, bringing forward information from insiders, whistleblowers and scientists all speaking about the issue.
But now there is even more coming to the surface for us to consider. Our friends over at Intellihub reported recently: In a recently aired clip on CBS, Physicist Dr. Michio Kaku talks about experiments that scientists have been doing with weather modification. The experiments that he discusses sound strangely similar to what we know about the HAARP facility in Alaska. These experiments seem to operate in the same way, by shooting lasers and nanoparticules into the sky. Continue reading Scientist Dr. Michio Kaku Admits Government ‘Weather Control’ On CBS News

“If tomorrow, women woke up and decided they really liked their bodies, just think how many industries would go out of business.” ~Dr. Gail Dines
Something is terribly wrong with how we as a culture view the female body and what we think of as beauty. Perhaps it has always been this way, to a degree, however, with the rise of the chemical cosmetics and the cosmetic surgery industry, coupled with a shift towards more materialistic cultural values, women are now more than ever before taught that beauty is anything but natural, and that their bodies need to be modified in order for them to happy and to be accepted.

A striking new study published in JAMA Psychiatry links hormonal contraceptives to depression, especially in teenage girls.
The findings aren’t surprising to many women.
A professor at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark and lead supervisor of the study, Dr. Øjvind Lidegaard said:
“We have known for decades that women’s sex hormones estrogen and progesterone have an influence on many women’s mood. Therefore, it is not very surprising that also external artificial hormones acting in the same way and on the same centers as the natural hormones might also influence women’s mood or even be responsible for depression development.”
