***** Repeat of February 2010 Interview *****Wade Doak is NZ’s equivalent to Jacques Cousteau having spent over 50 years as a aquanaut around New Zealand's coastline, interacting underwater with all species, researching the local ocean ecosystems, especially where the land meets the sea and the diverse interactions take place in these environments.Author of a large number of books, films and documentaries, Wade is better known overseas than he is here in NZ.Wade is also a world authority on dolphins having studied and swum with them in the wild and he has traveled extensively overseas sharing his knowledge on these most intelligent of creatures.
Yet, his knowingness on so many levels as to how the ocean systems work and the biota that inhabit them and the urgent need to lock away more areas as reserves and sanctuaries is now an important issue that Wade speaks passionately for.As we gain a greater knowing that our planet is a gigantic living super system that connects all biota into a complex web of life, what are we going to leave future generations is foremost on his mind, as it is becoming for more and more people on this planet today. Listen to an engrossing story of contact with inhabitants of the undersea world.www.wadedoak.com
***** Repeat of March 2010 Interview *****Formerly of Stanford University USA, Bruce enthuses us that by changing our belief system, and letting go of fear we can co-create and change evolution, and that knowledge is power and at a cellular level a minimum age of 140 years of age is within our scope.The interview ranges over: working in groups in community, collectively with shared aspirations and creativity - we shape a positive future. Including, science and spirit, matter and energy fields, what is visible and what is not, everything being connected ... we are in relationship ... even if we don''t realise it!
Also, native indigenous peoples and a sense of connection with the hidden. Avatar is the telling of the myth that in so many ways is the reality of today, as we have become disconnected from the living earth and the subtle energies beneath our feet. Many essences, one being?Today, Gaia is is living scientific reality.Listen to a spontaneous full-on expression of passion and joy as Bruce tells it ... as it is!www.BruceLipton.comwww.BeliefBook.comwww.SpontaneousEvolutionBook.com
***** Repeat of April 2010 Interview *****2012 - Mayan Calendar - What is it about?We in the Western world have been influenced by the historical events of what came out of Greece and Rome, however, when London had only a few thousand people in 800 AD, Tikal which is now in Guatemala was an advanced civilisation of 80,000 Mayan people, with a fully written language and living in elegant, architecturally built buildings with a pyramid as their center piece. Intrinsically integrated into their cosmology was an advanced calendar that has its culmination point in 2012.So why did the Maya have as a focal point of their civilisation a calendar that they "built on" that has a prophetic date, when their civilisation basically collapses around a 1000 years ago, yet only in the last 30 years researchers uncovers a profound understanding that humanity is at a point of cosmic timing that states that we are at the culmination of our evolutionary cycle?
And when we look around our planet today, with the synchronistic convergence of ecological, economic, societal and warlike disorder, what are we to make of this timing?
Carl Calleman, is a serious scholar and researcher from Sweden, whose insights show that there is intelligence embedded in not only the Mayan pyramids as 'time keepers' but also in the universe itself, and that we as a humanity are on the threshold of a great awakening that if we are astute and open to possibility will open the door to opportunity, growth and "unity consciousness" never before envisaged by humanity up until this very moment!
This is an exceptionally positive and optimistic analysis and interview by a world leading scholar!
***** Repeat of March 2010 Interview *****Listen to Bruce Lipton talking about the ‘new edge of science’, his experiences in that realm and of the necessity for a massive shift in our belief systems to realize our connectivity to the invisible world, of energy fields, consciousness, quantum physics, the journey of our soul … of spirit, Avatar and specifically, that it is essential for humanity to come into alignment at a very deep level within nature - as community.
Following the current Darwinian line of survival of the fittest, winner takes all, is taking us all (if we remain a semi conscious species) to the abyss. Particularly when the current leadership and business model that is running the present reality has no relationship to the sacredness of being, let alone nature, the source from which we spring.With the “new knowing” that we individually and collectively can actively shape a totally new paradigm and transform human endevour on this, our home planet - is the imperative of the moment! So let’s take an impassioned in-breath, let go of old thought forms and actively be this change.www.BruceLipton.comwww.BeliefBook.comwww.SpontaneousEvolutionBook.com
Listen to a clear and lucid understanding of what the many grass roots and volunteer groups are doing to make New Zealand sustainable and the excellent work they do, what charitable trusts support them, and how local government needs more consciousness to see that an ecological approach to environment, health and community are critical to where we are going as a nation.That at a national level, the Government still sees the environment as 'something' to exploit, when for example, in England, Marks and Spencer (the huge super store) has gone sustainable and is producing larger profits, because of going more into organics and a healthier lifestyle.On top of this the NZ Resource Management Act is perceived as woolly, in that there are no numbers in it, no targets, or standards, and that we are 20 years behind Europe in writing and complying with policy, when in fact we could be the planetary leader!
Finally, an exceptionally clear summary about the Supercity, Governance and Loss of Democracy. Plus, what is the Search and Surveillance Bill that is being foisted upon us, a peaceful nation of only 4 million kiwis? Why such draconian measures and who in their right mind would conjure up such a hideous concept?http://www.ourauckland.org.nz http://www.pavingparadise.nethttp://www.gag.net.nz
