Recently I have been reading quite a bit about concerns over the falling rates of fertility and the declining birth rates, especially in the US. People are questioning what is happening and citing all kinds of reasons.
After 15 years of research, working with women who had abortions, women from all walks of life, cultures and beliefs, from different countries and experiences, I wrote a book on our findings. Primarily I relied on the information we gleaned from working with women to talk about and counsel regarding their abortions.
OF course, no-one wanted to publish it because what we learned flew in the face of any information on abortion that was available at the time. Publishers either declined outright or they wanted permission to use the information (and myself) to further their agendas. By the time I wrapped up my work (due to my husband’s illness and subsequent death) I was focused solely on the information we had gathered on the women who had aborted, and the what the impact had been on them if any.

There are two types of people who will see paedophilia become an accepted practice in our society – those who embrace it and participate in it and those who do nothing.
There are far too many who refuse to believe it is happening. There are those who look at the evidence and some, instead, attack those who are trying to get the information out. No-one wants to look at any of this. Why should you? Because the children who are caught up in this are dying because what is happening to them is difficult for us to see. Not seeing, allows the paedophiles and traffickers to get away with what they are doing and children are being horrifically tortured and killed. If this disgusts you then you have to say something, do something to stop it, even if it is just to educate your own circle of people.
Do your own research, check out what happened to the children in Haiti and other disaster-torn countries. Check out the charities that have been brought down for having been part of the trafficking of children. Check out the number of agencies, websites, groups and individuals who have been brought down for paedophilia and human trafficking around the world. Check out how they are all connected. Check out how many of these children are being taken from their own countries by rings using the immigrant floods many of our countries are now contending with. Check out Pizzagate, Pedogate, Epstein Island, NXVIM and Allison Mack, the sexual predators among the Movie Stars, the many people associated with the Clinton Foundation who have been charged with either trafficking or paedophilia. 800,000 missing children in the US alone. How has the foster care and CPS system and family courts been used to gain access to these throwaway children? How have we all been manipulated in an ever increasing slope towards disregarding human life, especially children? Continue reading
I fully get that many people on my social media pages have put me on “unfollow” and that those few posts that even get through are often passed over because let’s face it – people don’t like to feel uncomfortable.
We have been conditioned that when someone says something that contradicts our inner narrative we react with abhorrence. Instead of wondering why an idea brings up that reaction and searching ourselves, we attack the person presenting the idea and label them “bad.” What is the fear of examining an idea, of allowing the possibility it could be true and doing our homework to verify or nullify? Even if we find it to be true we still have the option of ignoring it or of taking it onboard and adjusting our approach to life because we now have more information that changes the game. What is wrong with changing? Why are we so afraid to be wrong? When did being right or wrong become a competition that we must “win?” Continue reading
“The person who is most capable of disturbing your state of peace is a person who is reminding you that you are not truly in the state of peace and enlightenment that results from trust. At that moment, this person is your greatest teacher. This is the person whom you want to treasure and thank God for sending into your life! When you can transcend the rage, anger and upset which that person appears to provoke, and instead say, “Thank you for being my teacher,” you have acknowledged a soul-mate relationship.
Everyone in your life who can still push your buttons and send you into that frenzied state is a master teacher disguised as a manipulative, inconsiderate, frustrating, and non-understanding being. The peace that is enlightenment means that you are not only at peace with those who share your interests and agree with you, and with strangers who come and go, but also with those master teachers who remind you that you still have some work to do on yourself.” Wayne W. Dyer

“Truth is a strange thing.
There is a danger in seeking it, for one might find it.
That one does not like a truth does not make it false.
How few people understand that!
But there are many sorts of truths, as there are flowers and beasts. Some truths are hard and cold, and sharp, and if one touches them one might cut oneself and bleed. Some truths are like dark stones which do little more that exist unnoticed; others are green with the glow of life, like moist grass rustling in the morning sun/ some truths are like frowns; and some are like smiles. Some are friendly; others are hostile; and, in both cases, their nature is just what it is, not what they may be said to be. Politics is not the arbiter of truth; it may be the arbiter of comfort, safety, conformity, and success, but it is not the arbiter of truth; the arbiter of truth is the world and nature; they have the last say in these matters.
Many may wish it were not the case; and many will pretend it is not the case; but it is, for better or for worse, the case.
Truth does not care whether it is believed or not; similarly, stone walls and cliffs do not care whether they are noted or not; so then let us leave it to the individual to do as he thinks best. Truth, the stone wall, the cliff, are not enemies; but they are real.” John Norman

“A true warrior is never at war with the world. And it takes this understanding to begin a revolution with one self. There are no shortcuts in the human journey. As much as we dislike it, the mud in which we all swim is necessary to bloom. Many times we get confused and think we are the mud. We are not. In Eastern traditions the Lotus flower symbolizes perfection because the flower raises unstained above muddy waters. I choose to be the Lotus.” Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
“We may lose our best piece of pottery in the firing, the charter school we work so hard to create may fold, our start up business may go under, our children may develop problems beyond our control. If we only focus on the results, we will be devastated. But if we know the cup is broken, we can give our best to the process, create what we can and trust the larger process of life itself. We can plan, we can care for, tend and respond. But we cannot control. Instead we take a breath, and open to what is unfolding, where we are. This is a profound shift, from holding on, to letting go. As Suzuki Roshi says, “When we understand the truth of impermanence and find our composure in it, there we find ourselves in Nirvana.” Jack Kornfield
