Life is a balance between exhalation and inhalation. If you are afraid of exhalation your breathing will become shallow. Then your inhalation cannot be very deep. it is impossible. Exhalation is giving, giving whatsoever you can give. And the more you give, the more you become capable of receiving.
And when you give completely, utterly, totally, that is the moment of acceptance.

Be calm. Becalm the fright within you. Undo fright. Bring out the coolness and casualness of your Soul. As it is, you take great pains at being tense. You tense up. You are on the ready for flight or fight, as if these are the only choices you have. No longer inhibit yourself from full expression. Your life is not an either/or. Credit your Life with Sunrise.
In your Life on Earth, We can say you have many rose petals to pluck. Your Life goes beyond: Love or not Love. Life goes beyond the old refrain: He loves me, or he loves me not. Anyway, the quality of your Life does not depend upon any so-called individual but you. Love is not an outside job.
You keep up the pace of Life you keep. You race as if you are out of breath. You run for dear life. Take a new lease on Life. Try ambling. Amble down the Path of Life. Pull up at a rest stop.
Look at the sky and the trees. Those are two good sights to look. Do not be in a rush to catch up to what you feel hangs over you. Catch on to how to release yourself from bondage. You claim yourself a prisoner. Ah, beloveds, you are in your own thrall.
You can take a cat-nap. There is no need for you to ever be on the alert for danger. Abandon danger. Drink deeply of Peace. If you must escalate anything, escalate Peace. Peace is at hand. If something must dominate your life, let it be Peace. Give Peace an open invitation. Peace is good at any time.
Peace of what? Peace of knowing Peace without hesitation, Peace without storm. Peace as easy as pie, Peace as easy as allowing. Be in favor of Peace. Align yourself with Peace. Know its cooling nature. Peace is an avowal. It is not a contrast with something else. Let Peace be a foregone conclusion. If you drive a car or ride a bike, let it be named Peace. Make Peace your good friend.
Lean back. Ignite no fires. No need to put fires out either. Don’t rub two sticks together in the first place. Peace is being at Peace. May your Name be Peace. May you collect peace as a rebate due you. Chalk up Peace. Tally Peace. Long live Peace. There is no other alternative. Peace is the choice of Kings.
Consider that there is Peace in the wings, Peace is on a grand scale. Consider there is no opposite to peace. There are no opposites.
Peace is a cooling pool. No need of heated fumes. Refresh in the cooling pool of Peace. War does not exist outside of you. There is no need for war anywhere. There is no advantage to it unless you think turmoil is an asset. There is no need for you to speculate danger, no need to speculate an opposite to Peace. Be at peace. Peace is a priority. It really is Peace at all costs. There is no cost to peace. Anything else costs you dearly. There is no minus to peace.
Begin peace today. Make an end to any war within you. Nip it in the bud. It is not even necessary to abhor war. Dispense with any debate. Take no pride in argument. End all thought of war today. No walking on its edge. No anti-war. Let war not be your topic. Everyone already knows war is awful. War is in no shape or way lawful. War is no nut to crack. Put away uniforms.
No negotiations. No uprisings. Plant Peace everywhere. Declare Peace. Undo the concept of battle. Don’t build walls. Knock walls down. Walls are not Truth. Peace is Truth.

In recent years there have been some very promising studies conducted on the efficacy of using MDMA, more commonly referred to as ecstasy, to treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The results have been truly astounding, and it seems using this substance to treat PTSD is becoming a very real possibility. Unfortunately, MDMA is currently classified as a Schedule 1 substance under the Controlled Substances Act, meaning it is still highly illegal in North America. This makes acquiring funding and permissions to conduct studies on the substance difficult.
Just prior to the Psychedelic Science 2017 Conference, which was held in Oakland, California, last week, Dr. Bronner’s — the family owned maker of North America’s popular natural soap brand — announced it will donate $1 million per year over the course of the next five years to the non-profit organization Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS). This generous donation was gifted after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gave MAPS permission to begin Phase 3 drug trials using MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for people with treatment-resistant posttraumatic stress disorder. Good news all around!
This five-year pledge represents one fifth of a $25 million drug development budget that was set forth by MAPS to hopefully make MDMA an FDA-approved medicine.
CEO of Dr. Bronner’s, David Bronner, had this to say:
There is tremendous suffering and pain that the responsible integration of MDMA for treatment-resistant PTSD will alleviate and heal. To help inspire our allies to close the funding gap, my family has pledged $1 million a year for five years—$5 million total—by far our largest gift to an NGO partner to date. In part, we were inspired by the incredible example of Ashawna Hailey, former MAPS Board member, who gave MAPS $5 million when she died in 2011.
What Has MAPS Accomplished Using MDMA So Far?
MAPS has concluded a series of Phase 2 pilot studies involving MDMA assisted psychotherapy for PTSD, which will ultimately enable them to conduct two larger, multi-site Phase 3 trials — required to prove to the FDA that MDMA is a safe and effective substance, when combined with psychotherapy, for patients with treatment-resistant PTSD.
The $5 million donation from Dr. Bronner’s combined with the other $5 million gifted from Ashawana Hailey brings MAPS significantly closer to their goal of raising the estimated $25 million needed to develop MDMA into an FDA-approved prescription treatment. It’s incredible to see how far we’ve come when it comes to using psychedelics legally to treat psychological disorders.
“MAPS intends to use the income generated from selling MDMA once it’s an FDA-approved medicine to train therapists and set up treatment clinics around the world,” explains founder and Executive Director of MAPS, Rick Doblin, Ph.D. “Investment into making MDMA a legal medicine will turn MAPS into a self-sustaining organism, exponentially increasing our ability to heal suffering in the world.”
Why Did Dr. Bronner’s Decide to Support This Cause in Such a Big Way?
Dr. Bronner’s has long been known for donating a portion of their profits to various social and environmental causes as part of their mission to put forth the social and ecological principles from which the company was founded upon and to uphold Dr. Bronner’s original philosophy, which can be found on their iconic soap labels. If you are unfamiliar with this company or would simply like to know more, check out “15 Things You Didn’t Know About Dr. Bronner & His Magic Soap.” This will give you a glimpse into the incredible morals that guide this company. This is truly a company that is worth supporting, especially if voting with your dollar is important to you.
As Dublin explains, “Our larger goal is to see psychedelic medicine responsibly integrated into American and global culture, readily available to those who need it most, while helping the rest of us open our hearts and minds to each other and to the miraculous living world we live within.”
Much More Psychedelic Research Underway
Many promising studies have been conducted on an array of psychedelic substances like psilocybin, iboga, and ayahuasca to treat a variety of different ailments, including depression, anxiety, addiction, PTSD, and many other psychological disorders. If you are interested in learning more about using psychedelics to treat issues like these, check out the documentary Neurons To Nirvana. CE has also covered many of these studies before. (See links below.)
There are many more available. Just search “psychedelics,” “MDMA,” “ayahuasca,” or “iboga” to find them.

We are having a New Moon in Taurus on April 26th at 12:16pm Universal Time. New Moons are the beginning of a new wave of energy that lasts until the next one occurs 29 days later. However, the astrological configurations at this time mostly have a stronger influence over the following two weeks.
Mercury has been retrograde since April 9th/10th and will be finishing up during this window. It will slowly begin to change motion from moving backward to forward on May 3rd/4th, though it will appear stationary. From this point on it will pick up speed, and many of the lessons, insights, and changes that occurred over the previous three weeks will start to make more sense and things will start to fall into place and flow better. Some of the common Mercury retrograde complications can still occur during the following days after this shift in direction, but will minimize and then disappear as its speed increases.
Venus finished its retrograde on April 15th; however, it is still moving slowly, as some of the themes, both developments and challenges, around our relationships, money, values, worth, and beauty/creativity will continue to sort themselves out. Since Mercury is partially retrograde in the Venus-ruled sign of Taurus, it is giving some of the same themes an extended run. A few days after this New Moon, on April 28th, Venus returns into Aries at the starting point of the zodiac, which can possibly mark new beginnings for some and also more assertiveness toward the Venus-ruled areas mentioned above.
New Moon in Taurus Sextile Neptune in Pisces
Taurus is an Earth sign of a ‘fixed’ quality. Therefore, it is like a rock: solid, strong, and grounded to the Earth. It is practical, dependable, determined, and it is associated with Venus-ruled areas such as values, beauty, money, and self-worth. The sign of Taurus is more invested in the physical/material world, as food, nature, and anything to do with stimulating the senses are all under the domain of this sign.
Taurus energy can also be stubborn and overindulgent. As a result of its ‘Fixed-Earth’ orientation, it can also be stagnant. Taurus is a sign that works best on momentum, and while this can be a key to productivity under the influence of this sign, it could also be a catalyst for consistent laziness.
Considering that Mercury retrograde is also partially in Taurus, and its ruler Venus is in its post-retrograde period, now and in the upcoming weeks we can see significant changes and beginnings in some of these areas that may have already been playing out in the weeks or months leading up to this period.
This New Moon is making a harmonious and supportive aspect to Neptune in Pisces, which is associated with spirituality and creativity. Taurus and Neptune energy combined in this way can suggest a great time to find tranquility and stillness, which can help us to receive insights from spirit during this Mercury retrograde period. This Neptunian influence will be strongest on the day of the New Moon as well as on May 3rd/4th, when Mercury begins to change motion.
Mercury Conjunct Uranus, Saturn Retrograde in a Tight Square With Chiron
Mercury retrograde is joining Uranus in Aries on the 28th, just over an hour before Venus enters the same sign at the beginning of the zodiac. In a positive light, it can represent a time of new or inventive ideas, sudden insights, or breakthroughs in communication. It can also manifest as conflicts with others, which could be rebellious, or with communications/agreements in relation to breaking free or separating from something. This Mercury-Uranus conjunction will still be prevalent over the following few weeks until it peaks again on May 10th at the Full Moon, when Mercury is in a ‘moving forward’ period.
Saturn is returning toward a tight square with Chiron. This square energy started in early winter and will conclude in early fall, but we are currently getting a strong taste of it this week following the New Moon. For many people, this has been a time for putting effort and discipline toward any types of personal healing, whether it is physical or spiritual, and it may be associated with negative patterns. Alternatively, it can also be time for us to improve any problems we have around Saturn-ruled areas of discipline, responsibility, and commitment.
Saturn has been retrograde since April 6th and will be until late August. This is a time of revisiting, reflecting on, and making changes for anything related to the Saturn themes mentioned above, which can help us with new developments coming into our lives in late Summer and Fall. The outer planets that orbit beyond Mars are retrograde for a significant amount of time overall, but we astrologers do not emphasize them as much as when the inner planets (aka ‘personal planets’) go retrograde, such as Mercury, Venus, and Mars.
Pluto started its retrograde on April 20th and will last until September 28th. Pluto rules power, control, manipulation, underworld, secrets, hidden matters, sex, and transformation. When it goes backward, these are the types of things that we are reflecting on or revisiting in some way. The last time Pluto was retrograde was from mid-late April 2016 until late September 2016.
Making Intentions and Things to Consider
What are your personal values and interests that you need be considering right now? What can you do to make your life more abundant financially and/or be more aligned and connected with the Earth? What are you worth?
These are some examples of what your New Moon intentions can revolve around, but they can also be related to other Taurus themes mentioned in this article, or perhaps other things that come up. The exact time of this New Moon will be at 12:16pm Universal Time on April 26th. You can click here to find out what that is in your time zone.
It is best to make your intentions as close to the New Moon is possible, but they can even be done within the first 24 hours following. However, the best time for making intentions would be within the first half hour following or just prior.

Dear Ones, if we could have one wish for you, it would be that you give up your tendency to immediately make yourself wrong the second things become difficult or aren’t coming together as you think they should. It amounts to kicking yourself when you are down and serves absolutely no purpose at all. In fact, it only makes you more uncomfortable and resistant to what is happening behind the scenes that will always be for your highest good.
You are part of a process – a glorious process of discovering your divinity and beauty as an individuated aspect of Source energy. Your soul knows exactly what it is doing! You are also committed to your growth and mindful of your journey. You are not going to mess things up. In fact, starting to demonstrate faith and trust in yourself is an integral part of moving forward into your mastery and creating with far greater grace and ease.
If you are uncomfortable at any given time, know that it will pass. It could very well be due to the shifting energies on your planet, which you will integrate much more efficiently if you can stay in a space of acceptance. Are you practicing self care? Are you being loving and supportive to yourself? Are you surrendered to the flow? Are you recognizing and honouring your own capability and taking the time to connect with your inner knowing? Are you remembering to ask for help from your guides and helpers?
If the answer is yes to the above, there is nothing left for you to do but to ride it out and know that the moment the energies are ready to shift again you will be primed and ready to go. A wise human being knows there are times of tangible creation and movement, and also times where much must come together behind the scenes. No matter what phase you are in, your acceptance and faith and trust in yourself are key to a more comfortable enlightenment experience. ~Archangel Gabriel

You would like to receive the true teaching without any change. You would like to receive the true teaching as you are. That is not possible. It is not possible because of the very nature of the true teaching. I cannot do anything about it, nobody can. It is in the nature of the very phenomenon; you receive it only when you accept it.
God is available, Truth is available, Light is available, but you are such a miser in receiving. You are not only a miser in giving, you are a miser in receiving also. A miser has to be a miser whatsoever he does. You cannot give; you cannot receive. What type of life have you got? Giving and receiving are two aspects of the same coin. If you can give, you can also receive. Hence, so much insistence on giving – giving to people whatsoever you can give – giving in love. There is so much insistence from all the religions to give; give more and more. Why? – so that you can become capable of receiving more and more.

Don’t interfere in Life very much. If you’re on a bus and can’t get off until it stops, wait until the bus stops. Then get off. Don’t jump out the window. Know when to save your energy. Know when to get out of your own way.
There are changes that can be made. There are changes you can make. Not all changes can be made at the very minute you would like. In that case, wait. Wait a moment, or wait a year.
Be spontaneous in Life. When you can’t seem to get spontaneity off the ground — when a big hand seems to keep you in place — then sit and wait or take a roundabout tour.
Sometimes you have to bide your time. You can’t be both patient and impatient at the same time. You don’t have to be clever. You don’t have to fight windmills. In some cases, you wait for the wind to speed up or to slow down. Whether slow or fast, you can grow leaps and bounds. You can even outgrow your thoughts.
What is inevitable is that you grow. You will never not grow. You are destined to grow. Allow yourself to grow at the rate of speed you do grow. There are many ways to grow, in this way, and in that way, and many ways in between.
You don’t call all the shots. You call the shots that you can. Life is not always out of your hands, yet Life is not all your domain either. Not every detail of your Life is yours to decide. Who is to say that Life doesn’t turn out just right even as it is not all you wanted. You can learn from Life withheld as much as you can learn from Life Abundant. Of course, one way or another, your Life is abundantly yours as it happens.
You can’t push Life into a mold. Sometimes Life is not what you would choose, yet, somehow, Life rushes to you, or Life may even skip past you and turn back or go past you again. Life can please you, or Life may do a number on you. You take your chances. Some choices you have to abide by, and some you can let go of or not.
It is said that Life is in the cards, or it is said that Life is in the roll of the dice. There is that, so it seems, yet it is you who chooses a card or not, and it is you who rolls the dice, yet how they come out, nobody knows. It is you who gets in the way, or it is you who gets out of the way, yet Life has choice as well that may be irrespective of your choices in the short haul or long haul as far as you can see at present or not.
What does it matter! You are engaged with Life! Disappointment is what you say it is. Certainly, disappointment is your decision even when it is not your first choice. What you see as Fulfillment is also your decision.
Yet, how can it be that Life lags? Can it be? Even when Life is lagging, you can’t be far behind. Tomorrow you could sprint ahead. In Life, what is not possible? Everything is possible — and in leaps and bounds?
Of course, you can set the compass in one direction for India, and then find yourself in the Americas. What you may see as a loss can be a great Treasure. What you may see as a loss may not be a loss at all.
It can be that you have missed something and are yet to discover it.

The wax worm has a special compound in its digestive tract that biodegrades polyethylene plastic, converting it into a form of alcohol found in antifreeze.
At present, landfills around the globe are full of polyethylene shopping bags, an item which takes approximately 100-400 years to degrade naturally. Not only does plastic slowly leach chemicals into the environment when it is discarded in nature, it is not uncommon for wildlife to ingest plastic bags or other items, harming themselves and in some cases, dying.
Fortunately, a handful of researchers may have discovered a potential solution to the global plastic conundrum. As the Daily Mail reports, scientist Federica Bertocchini accidentally discovered that the wax worm, a caterpillar known for ingesting the wax within beehives, is able to devour and biodegrade polyethylene plastic. The insect converts the material into a form of alcohol found in antifreeze.
The scientist who works at the Institute of Biomedicine and Biotechnology of Cantabria uncovered the worm’s unique abilities when she attempted to clean up a wax worm infestation in one of her home beehives. Reportedly, she collected the worms then placed them in a plastic bag, hopeful that they would die. After leaving the bag in her home, Bertocchini was stunned to return and discover that the worms had chewed through the plastic and escaped.
Disgusted yet infatuated by the finding, she decided to examine the species more closely. In a new paper published in Current Biology, Bertocchini explains how 100 of the worms can chew through a normal polyethylene shopping bag in 40 minutes.
Because Bertocchini and her colleagues believed the worms had simply chewed through the plastic and shredded it, they conducted a somewhat nauseating scientific experiment to discern the worms’ abilities. First, they pureed the worms, then they left the paste in contact with the plastic itself and waited. Incredibly, 13% of the plastic has dissolved and degraded into ethylene glycol (the main component in antifreeze) after 14 hours.
The results helped the scientists conclude that the worms had not shredded the plastic. Rather, they have a compound in their digestive systems that is capable of breaking down and digesting the material. As Inhabitat points out, there have been several attempts to degrade plastic using fungus and bacteria, but none have proven to be as efficient as worm paste.
More research undoubtedly needs to be conducted, but it is possible that the wax worm could be an instrumental part of solving the global plastic crisis. What are your thoughts? Please comment below and share this news!

By: Jack Burns/The Free Thought Project) Saudi Arabia isn’t known for gender equality. In fact, the Saudi government’s idea of fair play among the sexes is ensuring women their husbands can only have three more wives. Saudi women truly have zero rights in society. Ranking Saudi Arabia among the 10-worst-countries for women, the Toronto Star wrote, “In oil-rich Saudi Arabia, women are treated as lifelong dependents, under the guardianship of a male relative. Deprived of the right to drive a car or mix with men publicly, they are confined to strictly segregated lives on pain of severe punishment.” So, imagine the surprise and dismay the world is now exhibiting with the knowledge the United Nations has elected Saudi Arabia as a member of its Women’s Rights Commission called the “Commission on the Status of Women.”
Geneva-based UN Watch president Hillel Neuer likened the election to, “making an arsonist into the town Fire Chief!” Neuer went on a Twitter tirade to drive home the significance of his opposition to allowing Saudi Arabia to have a seat anywhere near a women’s rights council.
“The news the @UN never wanted you to see—but we made it go viral. Saudi Arabia elected to women’s rights commission,” he tweeted. Calling on opponents to rise up, he stated, “But why not show moral courage & condemn this UN betrayal of Saudi women’s rights activists? UNESCO’s chief condemned its election of Syria.”
And in another tweet, he said, “How does Saudi Arabia win seats on U.N. human rights bodies? Cash & secret deals—even with adversaries like Russia.” Neuer’s reference to Saudi money, certainly a factor in buying their way onto the commission, is nothing new. The Free Thought Project has been chronicling their monetary influence for years.
Earlier this year we told you the Saudis heavily influence John McCain’s politics, leading some to question his motives for encouraging the U.S. to join the Syrian Civil War. And on the Democratic side of the two-party-paradigm, the Saudis have given millions to the Clintons. So, it should come as no surprise watch dogs like UN Watch are saying the same thing about the Saudis.
What does it mean for the world now that the Saudis have a seat at the women’s rights table? Glad you asked….UN Watch describes the election as very significant.
The election, also, was anything but transparent. The kingdom of Saudi Arabia was elected by a “secret ballot” last week at the U.N.’s 54-nation Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). The U.S. reportedly objected to a Saudi nomination and pressed the countries of the world to take a vote, in protest of the ECOSOC’s customary practice of “rubber stamping” nominations. Unfortunately for women, the vote passed and the Saudis were placed on the commission.
Saudi Arabia, who was exposed by the 28-pages for helping to fund the 9/11 terrorist attacks which brought down the World Trade Center’s twin towers, and who is being sued in court by families of the victims, is the same country which kills homosexuals and stone adulterers.
When 9/11 happened, instead of going after the Saudis — who made up the majority of the hijackers — the George W. Bush administration attacked and overthrew Saddam Hussein’s regime in Iraq, and destroyed the country of Afghanistan.
If you need any evidence on just how oppressive the Saudi regime is, look no further than the video below that aired on national television — an instructional video on how to beat your wife.
The video features a Saudi doctor, Khaled Al-Saqaby, who deals with the often ‘thorny’ issue of how and when to beat your wife. Al-Saqaby begins the video by telling husbands not to immediately attack their wives, but to discipline them properly first.
When speaking of how women some women say they would like to be treated with equality, Al-Saqaby called this a “very grave problem.”
He says, “The first step is to remind her of your rights and of her duties according to Allah. Then comes the second step – forsaking her in bed.”
The third step, beating, has to correspond with the “necessary Islamic conditions” before taking action.
“The beating should not be performed with a rod, nor should it be a headband, or a sharp object.”
Instead, husbands should use a ‘tooth-cleaning twig or with a handkerchief’ to beat their wife.
Hopefully, then, the wife will “feel that she was wrong in the way she treated her husband.”
At the end of the video, Al-Saqaby lets the wife-beating husbands of Saudi Arabia know that sometimes, you may have to dole out an extra beating outside of the world of just discipline. Sometimes, according to this sicko ‘doctor,’ they just deserve to be beaten.
