Part I of this three-part documentary series explores the determinants of behavior to dispel the myth of “human nature” demonstrating that environment shapes behavior. Part II illustrates how our social structures impose our values and behaviors demonstrating that our global monetary system is obsolete and increasingly insufficient to meet the needs of most people. Part III, to be released this year, will depict the vision of The Venus Project to build an entirely new world from the ground up, a “redesign of the culture” where all enjoy a high standard of living, free of servitude and debt, while also protecting the environment.

We want to send a heartfelt thank you to all of our Kickstarter donators & The Venus Project supporters who made it possible for us to produce Part I & II of The Choice is Ours.

A special thank you also to LTI (Linguistic Team International) & the many people who volunteered to create multiple language subtitles, possibly 30 or more!  To help with translations, introduce yourself at:

Zen Gardner: A Time of Revelation

Reposted from zengardner.com

by Zen Gardner – Mar 2, 2015

I don’t know about you but the schism between truth and lies seems to be widening pretty drastically lately with a lot of confusion and disorientation sewn into the mix.

Just recently I’ve seen friends facing personal upheavals, con jobs, personal attacks from very strange quarters, new and very revealing understandings of personal perspectives and relationships, and just about everything, for myself as well.

It’s like we’re viewing the perceived world as being fractured into shards of broken off new perspectives to be grasped and understood, making the big picture that much more lucid.

If we connect the dots.

I’ve said for a long time the split between the willing awakeners and the willful asleep would widen and we’d see more and more psychotic behavior on the part of the truth resistant. The revelation of what’s really going on within these vectors of society, as well as in the so called Truth movement, are something to look out for and be consciously aware of.

Apocalypse Now

Apocalypse means the unveiling, the revealing, hence the term revelation. Quite a far cry from the end of the world, it’s just an end of a very limited understanding and the opening of another.

As the world becomes more and more aware of what is really driving society, via enlightened thought, archeological and scientific or otherwise discoveries of profound truths about our realm and where we came from, our dimensional reality, the real history of our planet etc., things take on whole new dimensions even for mainstream thinkers.

Settled science is famous for concealing not just information, but its implications. That’s really the world we’re up against. “Mustn’t make any rash decisions or paradigm shifts. We’re still processing this data”….yada yada.

We’re in for a fun and wild ride. Things are going to be revealed that are going to peel eyeballs back. Then observers are going to have to deal with the cognitive dissonance as mainstain purveyors make mush out of what could be empowering truth which the unaware will have to swallow. As the information field shifts and steps up its vibrational intensity we’re going to be seeing some real doozies and these seeming controllers won’t be able to keep their tracks covered.

Meanwhile we’re experiencing what we’re experiencing, faster than any mainstream or even alternative narrative can keep up with.

There’s so much being released as this fractured shift and partition of the old paradigm takes place it will be mind boggling. But a great ride to take nonetheless…if you’re conscious, awake and aware…and on the offensive.

The Moral of the Story?

Don’t let it throw you, but pay attention to all of this. It might be seeping up through some personal issues you might have but let it bubble up and see it for what it is. Maybe dreams are surfacing to your consciousness, or old relationships or new situations are under scrutiny. Just pay attention.

Truth invites inspection. Never be afraid.

We are being empowered by the mightiest force in the Universe. The Universe itself. We can steer through this madness with calmness of heart and soul and a determined mind, or let it disturb us and send us into lower level thinking and vibration.

The choice is ours.

Don’t let anything throw you. Examine everything carefully in conscious awareness, and never fear your conclusions, or path along the way.

Trusting our awakened hearts is imperative.

Steady on your way.

Much love always, Zen

As a Tree

10428456_10153175717465850_2372710360012574991_n
A friend of mine posted this image on Facebook.   Such a fantastic concept!

Which prompted me to share this thought:

“How cool would it be to create a “living cemetery” of these that is a Food Forest ~could literally feed one’s descendants, and they would be fed by their ancestors…   [see the link below for a description of a food forest]

Then someone else made this comment:

I like to think of me as a tree !!!

Which inspired me to write this little poem:

I like to think of me
as a tree ~
with roots sunk deep
into ancestral dreams
and ever nurtured
by the fecund earth
with a willing embrace
of this world of form.

I like to think of me
as a tree ~
with branches reaching
toward what is to be
and ever enlivened
by the radiant sun
with a willing embrace
of the Élan Vital.

I like to think of me
as a tree ~
transmuting
past into future
heaven into earth
energy into form
dwelling within
the omnipresent.

And as long as I’m dwelling upon thoughts of trees, it feels fitting to share this talk that I delivered at a 911 Tribute in 2005.  (I was speaking in front of 3,000 people, and was so nervous that my knees were wobbling the entire time.)

TREE DEDICATION

As we begin our program this evening and prepare for the invocation, I would like to first bring everyone’s attention to the tree festooned with ribbons and streamers that stands to the west of the band shell. This is a Valley Forge American Elm, a testimony to survival – it is naturally resistant to Dutch Elm disease, and it has just been donated by area businesses to serve as a living memorial to all those who died in the attacks on September 11, 2001.

Throughout time, trees have always served as inspiring symbols, symbols of hope, of strength, of peace, and even the symbol of life itself. And in our country specifically, trees have been a symbol of the political principles that we treasure so deeply. The first Liberty Tree, located in Boston, was an Elm tree, just as this one is. The Sons of Liberty gathered and held their meetings in the shade of its branches. They flew their banners from its branches. In time, all 13 colonies each had their own Liberty Tree, which served as rallying places for the ideals of the American Revolution.

The original Liberty Elm in Boston was cut down by British soldiers, as an act of war, in 1775. The last of those original 13 Liberty trees to die was in Maryland, in 1999. It died as a result of a hurricane.

So in trees we see living symbols of our guiding principles, and we also see how those principles might be lost. We find ourselves gathered here this evening with two events in our minds and in our hearts – one, an act of war, 4 years ago, the other, a natural disaster, hurricane Katrina, mere days ago. Both of these events have presented our country with immense suffering and sorrow. Both of these events have presented us with immense challenges. They have challenged us to respond in a fashion that maintains and upholds the democratic principles that we hold so dearly, “that all people are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

It has been said that the true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit – to plant trees for generations that are yet to come. The founding fathers and mothers of this country planted many trees, in the principles they fought for and the institutions they created. We benefit from these trees which they planted so long ago. And so it is now our turn to plant trees. Thus, tonight we dedicate this Elm tree, as a living memorial, as a testimony to survival, as sign of hope for healing and peace. May we also plant trees of principles and institutions that will shelter and serve generations yet to come.

Welcome
The goal of the Beacon Food Forest is to design, plant and grow an edible urban forest garden that inspires our community to gather together, grow our own food and rehabilitate our local ecosystem.

What is a Food Forest?
A food forest is a gardening technique or [Permaculture] land management system, which mimics a woodland ecosystem by substituting edible trees, shrubs, perennials and annuals. Fruit and nut trees make up the upper level, while berry shrubs, edible perennials and annuals make up the lower levels. The Beacon Food Forest will combine aspects of native habitat rehabilitation with edible forest gardening.

Laura Bruno: The Tower Card

bornoutsidethebox:

Excerpt from Laura’s blog post: ” The Tower represents a radical shift accomplished by sudden realization (lightning) that ejects both left and right. Old paradigms tumble from their former heights — into what, we do not know. Left and right can mean left brain/right brain, liberal/conservative, perceived morality codes, or any other polarized issue that fails to integrate itself.”

A few days ago, I mentioned how the increased militarization and decreased rights of the US all feel “very 9 of Swords to me,” as in “Awakening from the Nightmare.” Some people dread that card, yet emphasis and attitude determine how the card plays out. Do we choose to focus on the Awakening or the nightmare? Do we look around with an intense sigh of relief, feeling so grateful for the contrast between the Real and what only seemed “real” in a fear-based dreamscape? Or do we continue to scare ourselves by fixating on the nightmare? Tarot cards offer glimpses of our current possibilities. Ultimately, we decide what we do with any given energy or opportunity.

Another card that keeps leaping to mind lately is The Tower Card, which shows a giant tower being struck by lightning (haha! Freudian typo’d lightening) and people on either side catapulting from…

Zen Gardner: Stormy Weather on High Cosmic Seas

Stormy Weather on High Cosmic Seas
by Zen Gardner Feb 12, 2015

I don’t even need to ask who’s feeling this. We’re all experiencing turbulent vibrational times right now. It’s a very real challenge. Whatever the source, we’re going through a kind of vortex of change and disturbance that needs to be acknowledged and addressed.

I don’t know the so-called “reason” for it, but it’s there. This is confirmed by good friends and a variety of sources, but with even a cursory look at the world around us, we’re passing through some serious stuff. And it can be quite disconcerting.

I’ve said many times this was coming in previous articles, but as always, when it hits it’s another story. We can observe something inside the “washing machine” with a safe distance between the event and ourselves, but when we’re actually in it personally – man o’ man.

Symptoms and Possible Contributors

The affects in times like this include scrambled sleep cycles, a sense of tension and difficulty in concentrating, low energy and health challenges, emotional turmoil, and even degrees of confusion in our thinking processes. It really helps to look outside for influences so that we don’t lose perspective on the event we’re part of or get lost in futile introspection.

Astrologically speaking, we’re in a very powerful vortex. Currently the mercury retrograde is having its usually somewhat disempowering effect. It’s said to always be a good time to back away from major decisions in our lives when this is happening.

More substantially is a major influence called the Pluto-Uranus square, an infrequent alignment that has drastic implications on social and personal situations. This was brought to my attention by a dear friend Kit Walker who has been deeply immersed in astrology for much of his life and follows these trends passionately. Apparently this same squaring happened in the ’60’s and contributed to the rise of the cultural and spiritual revolution at the time, and is about to happen again once the direct squaring passes.

Which happily is soon! Beginning March and April this year, it portends an uprising of convergence of social activism and increased awareness which will give tremendously greater impetus for spreading this awakening amongst a much larger swathe of humanity and help dismantle the ruling oligarchy.

Happy thought? I thought so too.

Surreal Signs and Screwing with Humanity

I don’t know about you, but just observing the daily news and events is enough to make your head spin. The obvious lies, reversals, omissions and outright blather, negativity and fear we’re being bombarded with is surreal. That so few can stand back and take notice of this charade is another mind-blowing factor.

It’s increasingly hard to even peruse the headlines as it’s so shockingly bad. But remember, that’s the intention – “shock and awe” at their sorcery and draconian power plays.

For many of us, that anyone can even begin to fall for the mainstain portrayal and explanation of anything is hard to believe. But to so many this is their way of life, as incredible as that may seem. How they’ll snap out of the hypnotic trance is a question we all ask ourselves.

Again, remember that detachment is the key to keeping a well balanced and conscious outlook.

What’s Going on in the Etheric Realm?

Good question. There are a lot of explanations being posited. Spiritual and inter-dimensional attacks, electromagnetic influences, chemical, radioactive and genetic degradation, mind control programs and on and on. Personally I take them all seriously and put them into the mix. It’s out there to be investigated.

The point being, a very serious affront, or bombardment if you will, is now accosting our planet and spiritual sphere. That’s what we’re feeling and is twisting and turning so many and causing this sense of disassociation. We can’t lose our conscious footing due to “circumstances” and outside influences.

This may seem like ethereal cereal to some but those who are experiencing what I’m talking about understand.

Know you’re not alone, first and foremost. This is hitting all of us. But it can be weathered with full empowerment. Those on the cutting edge of understanding and consciousness already know this, as it’s not a new routine. We’ve faced these onslaughts many times over, and much of it continually.

My intention here is to bring clarity and a general sense of common awareness. In unity we are strong, and as we share these common influences in open communication we’re able to better understand and ward off these affronts.

Much love, and power to the True People,

Zen
