The Earth If Left M.N. Hopkins

The Earth if left alone will adjust and balance itself back to a healthy state of being just as the human body was designed to do the same without the help of outside interventions.  Your modern medicines and psychologies have done more harm than good.  One must step outside the current human systems if there will ever again be the possibility of a healthy existence in your jointly created world of Man.

MANIF-POTLUCK contre le contrôle corporatif et les OGM

5-7PM Monday July 20 across from the Palais des congres, Montreal
Bring your costumes, banners, some food to share and enjoy some great music!
Organized by Vigilance OGM and the Canadian Biotechnology Action Network
Join us across the street from the World Congress on Industrial Biotechnology, organized by the largest biotech lobby group in the world (BIO) – whose members include Monsanto, Dow AgroSciences and BASF. Companies are meeting to plan how they can make new products from genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and synthetic biology.
Companies want to turn plants and elements of living organisms into biofuels and chemical factories. They are trying to sell the idea of a “bioeconomy” based on synthesizing and engineering the genetic make-up of crops, trees, microbes, algae, and other life-forms.

We need real solutions. We need to reduce consumption and respect life. Come to share good food and music with us. Stop corporations from taking control over food and life.
Thank you for helping to promote this event!

10 Gandhi Quotations

The Indian luminary, famous for leading the Indian nation to independence in peaceful means, is deemed an inspirational figure to this day, over 60 years after his death in 1948. 
As a tribute to Gandhi, here’s a collection of some of his thought-provoking quotes. 

"My life is my message."

“I regard myself as a soldier, though a soldier of peace.“

“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty."

“Nonviolence is the first article of my faith. It is also the last article of my creed.”

“Seven social sins: politics without principles, wealth without work, pleasure without conscience, knowledge without character, commerce without morality, science without humanity, and worship without sacrifice."

“An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it. Truth stands, even if there be no public support. It is self sustained.”

The only tyrant I accept in this world is the 'still small voice' within me. And even though I have to face the prospect of being a minority of one, I humbly believe I have the courage to be in such a hopeless minority.”

“I’m a lover of my own liberty, and so I would do nothing to restrict yours.”

“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.” 

“A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes."



Speak Out - A Poem by Lawrence Ferlinghetti

Speak Out - A Poem by Lawrence Ferlinghetti

And a vast paranoia sweeps across the land
And America turns the attack on its Twin Towers
Into the beginning of the Third World War
The war with the Third World

And the terrorists in Washington
Are shipping out the young men
To the killing fields again

And no one speaks

And they are rousting out
All the ones with turbans
And they are flushing out
All the strange immigrants

And they are shipping all the young men
To the killing fields again

And no one speaks

And when they come to round up
All the great writers and poets and painters
The National Endowment of the Arts of Complacency
Will not speak

While all the young men
Will be killing all the young men
In the killing fields again

So now is the time for you to speak
All you lovers of liberty
All you lovers of the pursuit of happiness
All you lovers and sleepers
Deep in your private dream
Now is the time for you to speak
O silent majority
Before they come for you!

Gardasil in Italy: My Daughter’s Two Year Battle With New Medical Conditions by Simona

Gardasil in Italy: My daughter’s two year battle with new medical conditions

By Simona 
Rome, Italy

Sane Vax, Inc.   27 June 2015

My daughter Chiara is 13 years old. She was an athlete with a history of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis with elevated levels of anti-thyroid peroxidase antibodies. We discovered it much before receiving HPV vaccine.
I can tell you that she was a good athlete. Hashimoto’s did not stop her from participating in the World Championship Karate in Caorle twice. In 2010, she won the brown belt. Chiara’s other hobbies included painting, singing and practicing sports. That was before Gardasil.

Chiara’s story after Gardasil is as follows: 

She received the first injection of the HPV vaccine Gardasil in March 2013.  It was about ten days before her menstrual cycle. Afterward, she was sick for three days showing nausea, headache, stomach-ache and faint.
In April 2013 she was again sick for five days but the doctor said that could be just a strong menstrual syndrome.
In May 2013 she received the second shot and she was sick again for seven days.
During June 2013 she stayed sick for ten days.
By July 2013 she had an osteocondrite (a joint condition whereby a variable amount of bone and its adjacent cartilage loses its blood supply) at her astragalus (ankle) so she had to stop practicing sports. We contacted the gynecologist and she suggested to give her magnesium.
On September 2013 after the third shot, she started to have seriously strong stomachaches, like an acute allergic reaction. She did endoscopic exams, but all negative. She was treated with proton-pump inhibitors and she followed a diet without milk and derivatives, but no success.
In December 2013 she started to experience vasovagal syncope with strong stomachaches, headaches and insomnia.
During January 2014 she was kept in hospital for ten days, she repeated the endoscopic exam, and they found some eosinophil cells (eosinophilic esophagitis is an allergic inflammatory condition of the esophagus) and low levels of vitamin D.
During February 2014 she started to take vitamin D, B1, B6, B12, selenium. She started feeling better but, the heavy pain, insomnia and syncope episodes did not stop.
During the 2013-2014 school year, she missed more than 90 day of classroom for the above pains and symptoms.
In July 2014 the endocrinologist/gynecologist suspected endometriosis and decided to give her a contraceptive (Claire), but through NMR analysis everything appeared negative.
Although we brought Chiara to several medical doctors only one, a gynecologist, suggested that everything could be related to Gardasil treatments. All the others to which we talked about this idea treated us like mad people.
I have read several articles, but I am very impressed with one by Lloyd W. Phillip (Gardasil Syndrome). I think I have finally realized what happened my daughter.
At the moment she is taking selenium, magnesium, vitamin D, B1, B6, B12, melatonin and live lactic cultures. Although all the celiac tests were negative we discovered that celiac diet and low level of histamine related food seems to have some positive results.
The gynecologist changed her contraceptive with a stronger one to stop the menstrual cycle flow.
In the last month she is doing better, she had just one episode of syncope, less pain and the number of normal days have increased.
The syncope episodes seem to be related to her menstrual cycle, in particular the worse days are those overlapping with ovulation and menstruation days.
After two years she was finally able to go to school for two consecutive weeks. Before, she could not eat without vomiting, study or sleep. Meeting her friends for a day out was nearly impossible.
I wrote my daughter’s story to give you an idea about the injuries that Gardasil could cause. I hope our experience could help you decide to investigate before you decide to use an HPV vaccine.
Above all, I hope Chiara and all the other survivors of new medical conditions after HPV vaccinations find treatments to help them get their normal lives back.

101 Reasons To Live Off The Grid

Self Sufficiency Magazine,    22 June 2015

101 Reasons to Live Off The Grid – People go off grid for all kinds of reasons, the biggest one I think is that people seem to think life will be easier, less stressful and perhaps even make them happier. Well, it’s WORK, and work is a four letter word. It’s not easy, it’s not luxury and it takes time and effort and determination. Having said that, these are some of the more uplifting and positive aspects of living off the grid. This list touches on the basic and fundamental reasons why we do what we do. This article was originally published in the October 2014 issue of Off Grid Living magazine, our premiere issue of our flagship publication. We hope you enjoy the article.

It's Only A Matter Of Focus - A Discourse by M.N. Hopkins

We see so little real kindness today within your world.  A meanness or lacking of awareness of what is possible when one but just calm one's emotions long enough to touch again to oneSelf, which will again put you all in touch with the better or higher angels of your being.

It's only a matter of focus or concentration.  If you concentrate upon your fears and ego needs for more and more and more then you will have less and less and less of that which brings with it happiness and contentment.

See what has happened in your world recently as a few of dark determination driven by greed and a lust for more have brought the world's financial institutions to a state of collapse.  This could have been avoided with some wise and competent leadership that is seeing to the welfare of all the citizens of your planet, not just a few of your imaginary rich nations.  How can a nation be rich when so many live in poverty, when there is so much crime against humanity, when so many are lost within their own despair and fear of a future in which they fear failure and disappointment and an emptiness that comes from misguided and misdirected or in many cases a misuse of their God given abilities to create a world where all can feel a part of the One?

Yes, we are all a part of the One as the One is a part of us only waiting patiently for you to recognize and accept your inherent abilities of being co-creators in this world that you call, Earth.

Instead of actively joining in a world where the inhabitants love and care for each other, you have chosen to remain isolated not only from each other, but from yourSelves.

You have chosen a bitter fruit rather than the sweetness of Life.

It's no wonder there is a rise in sickness and poverty.  We each feed each other and this helps us maintain and encourage greater emotional and mental health through our positive interactions.  Instead, we have chosen to fight each other and project negativity upon each other which has resulted in a world of war, disease, and financial crisises that are fueled by the greed of a few whose sole aim is to enslave humanity as they have been enslaved by their own weaknesses and needs for control and power over others.

It is as if an evil spell has been caste upon the Land and the citizens are led to their own destruction through the deceptions and lies of the few who foolishly believe that they can control the many.  It is not one's ego that can control others, but only the Self that can control the ego.  Once under control, then ego and Soul become joint creators of reality.  Any reality that the Soul determines will enhance and enrich the world around It.

The Soul is connected to God, so it has access to beauty and balance and That which brings Love, Peace, and Joy into you physical realm.

Trouble Sleeping? - Try Cherry Vanilla Juice

Cherry juice (and vanilla) drink
I have made cherry juice a regular part of my morning and nighttime routines since the first time I tasted it. To make it even better, it is one the easiest sleep tonics you can concoct!
Why tart cherry juice: Tart cherries are incredibly rich in melatonin, the hormone responsible for regulating our sleep-wake cycles, so indulging in a glass of the tart but sweet ruby red liquid every morning and night will help you keep your sleep schedule on track.
Why vanilla (optional): Vanilla has a soothing scent, and adding a drop of extract to your cherry juice can provide aromatherapy benefits that will help you doze off.
You will need…
-5-8 ounces of tart cherry juice
-A drop or 2 of vanilla extract
In the morning pour yourself about 5-8 ounces of tart cherry juice and drink it in its entirety. At night 1 hour to half an hour before bed repeat, adding a drop or 2 of vanilla if you desire. I would suggest sticking to using the vanilla only at night, since you don’t want to get too relaxed first thing in the morning!

A Vision Of Mankind's Future by M.N. Hopkins

Source of picture:

The population in the future will decrease due to the manipulation of crops, thus poisoning man's food supply, the widespread use of drugs, with their detrimental effect on the human body, and the total breakdown of organized and planned action due to the weakening of will and the lack of inspiration and leadership within your human communities.

This will pass in time and from the ashes of your former communities will arise a renewal of leadership that will take the reigns and move Mankind closer to it's true nature and a tried and true means of the use of their natural power to create, to heal, and to conquer their childlike fears that have a hold on the release of fresh and creative energies that can and will be used for the development of new views of power and the implementation of Man relying on his own talents and skills that are guided by Soul, that is guided by God toward a new world order.  Not the one envisioned today by the tyrants that now rule, but a world that is truly ordered and planned and actuated by the inherent goodness that sits within Man's heart center.

No longer driven by corruption and greed and imbalance, but now driven by thoughtful planning through a balanced approach to the living of ones life.  No longer will greed prevail and now will we have the natural cycle of creation, transformation, transmutation, renewal and then a return to be used in another way through another device that is better suited for the reality of the times.

The past habit of creating out of non-realities that lead to a chaos and confusion will no longer exist.  Now will Humankind discuss and plan systems that are suited to the realities of that time and the environments that exist.

We will plan for the now and past and future will take care of themselves.  We will live in harmony and balance with the Earth and each other.

You will have no choice but to change your archaic methods that no longer work.  Education will be as it was intended to be.  A way to adapt and adjust one's thinking to the task at hand in the time and place at hand.  The Elders and those with true skills and knowledge will lead the way and all will prosper in this system.

Each generation will build upon the past and modify their structures according to current realities.  In this way, and effective means of production and services can be maintained and adjusted over time along with the cycles of Earth communities and the human communities in a syncretized manner.
