Today we are in need of a massive and rapid local and global mind change that redefines the contours of a new worldview based around a deep integration of the material and spiritual worlds.Across all disciplines, cultures, businesses in every aspect of our being we are being confronted by the urgency and necessity to instigate positive enlightened change... And things are now beginning to shift. The need to unite and embrace new systems of thinking and doing is now paramount, that within the web of life that we are embedded in, there is no separation as we work towards oneness.We are noticing that: "Things are getting better and better ... worse and worse and faster and faster...”
And we also know that it's our children and grand children's life that hangs in balance on what we individually and collectively do. Hear about the new '100 critical shifts' in the coming 'Blue Economy' from metabolic materials in living buildings, such a painting buildings to absorb Co2, to mushrooms to eat and absorb nuclear waste. The increase of Wellness centers in the USA in the form of body, mind, emotions and spirit to promote full spectrum wellnessInnovative healing methods being used by heating the body to high temperatures prior to cancer treatment, break through's in power and a quantum leap in energy generation based on Zero Point Energy. To artistic expression of 100s of participants from many countries individually singing in together in choir over the web, to tapping into our intuitive capabilities and the gift of going beyond time, and why 'equal societies' almost always do better.Finally to how Paul Hawken sums it up with the millions of non governmental organisations and people like you, unifying as if under one banner to shift the paradigm from the old to the new ... and this is happening now.Listen as Jeff Hutner explains that far beyond 'dysfunctional mainstream news', a new worldview is becoming manifest.http://newparadigmdigest.com
As the pace of life gets faster and faster and days appear to rapidly recede behind us, NZers appear to be like possums at night time staggering in the middle of the road mesmerized and caught in the glare of headlights of a fast coming vehicle, not knowing what is happening and therefore not appearing to take any action.Will the possums wake up in time and do the correct thing by taking action to control their own future, ... or ...?Plus, what is the table talk at cafes, restaurants, bars and lunch times around NZ? Is the populace happy and even ecstatic with how we the people are governing ourselves? (Yes or No?) That in fact the talk of both town and country people is that there is nothing at all to be concerned about, with our Democracy, Governance and Sovereignty? That we can safely leave everything in the hands of the Act Party who in this escalating drama of tension, play the bad cop in the National Party scenario of being the good cop?Listen to young independent voices talk about the need to be exceptionally alert to what is happening and the necessity to NOT get our news from mainstream media that is intent on jamming sensationalistic insular drivel into our homes 24/7.
But instead, be adroit and astute by accessing our own news via the web, uTUBE, videos, DVDs, network parties and spontaneously showing up at events and friends places.

How come little Nuclear Free NZ, safely situated in the South West Pacific has become the focal point of Government agendas that were in most cases, not signalled at the last general election? Is this the way to ACT?From out of right field NZers find themselves on the back foot as the Government maneuvers to place restrictions on the electorate and their freedoms, or on the other hand loosens them for exploitation.Some see these actions as a blitzkrieg when most people are struggling to hold jobs, pay bills and give their children a good loving quality of life.
We are being asked to make submissions if we disagree with the agenda however, most find they are too tired at the end of the day to attend meetings, research their submissions and attend rallies to show solidarity.
Thus, the perception is that the Government is deliberately wearing the constituents down, but worse are only allowing 'we the people' a very short time span to respond back to the government.Is this not strange? NZ has in most cases carried the moral high ground in local and world affairs, we have been seen as a fair country, an honest player, but where and who are the politicians who will stand in integrity and carry the flame of honest virtue working for the betterment of the community and the whole? There are 120 elected servants in Parliament, who will stand up to be countered? Watch this space!And where are the Civic Elders, the Pillars of Society?"Full Spectrum Dominance!" These below are some concerns that NZ is under pressure from: DEMOCRACY: With the disbanding of 7 local Councils in Auckland by central Government as well as Environment Canterbury ... where is this heading?Inclusive of this are 'we' going to experience:1) More Genetic experimentation and possibly food grown throughout Aotearoa?2) The Australian TGA and CODEX Alimentarius being enacted to stop natural health practitioners producing products and selling them here. Note: originally many National MPs supported health freedom, but the NZ bureaucracy is still forcing this agenda, compromising some genuine National MPs word.3) Caving in and allowing whales to be killed globally because we are fearful of the Japanese yen?4) The Security and Intelligence Bill being foisted upon a basically peaceful country which already has very secure borders?5) Having overseas mining corporations extract minerals from conservation land, with minute royalties going to the NZ people?6) Foreign Investment and countries overseas buying land into NZ, when NZers are not allowed to buy land in certain countries that are allowed to buy here.7) Community owned assets like the airport and Auckland water being readied for sale to overseas ownership or 'contracted' to them for up to 35 years at a stretch.8) Privatization of Prisons.And more...The list is growing, why is the National government steam rolling us with this agenda, when it has always been their stated aim to have as little government interference as possible?These issues have to openly debated 'point for point' via local town meetings as well as TV but with a neutral host over the next 1 to 2 years, why the hurry and why give the electorate so little time to respond.
Are MP's not "our elected servants?"
