Science is rapidly moving to recognize that our human body is far more than a highly organized cardiovascular machine, that it is a conglomeration of 50 trillion or so cells, all coalescing into a dynamic whole. Yet, at a deeper level a 70 kilogram human would have approximately 7*1027 atoms.That is, 7 followed by 27 zeros: 7,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.What this translates to, that every one of these atoms are part of a highly organized matrix, an ‘energy field’ if you will, all oscillating at the same frequency as that of the Earth our sustainer, which is also oscillating at a particular frequency.
New branches of the science of ‘energy medicine’ are becoming more predominate, under the names of — fractals, biophysics, neuro-quantology and researchers are exploring the role of connective tissue — our cytoskeleton, a fractal web of protein and water with crystalline properties that extends into every cell of our body.
Everything is connected by electrical properties and evidence is emerging that the Chinese meridians are another step to interfacing with the “quantum” field.With science closing in on the chakras that go up our spine to the top of our skull, we are also breaking through into the areas of the ‘subtle bodies’ that are layered throughout our body.This is taking us closer to the understanding that our physical body, the vehicle we inhabit is an exceptionally complex, profoundly dynamic, supremely magnificent temple, we can call "home".We could even say, we are a "holographic being".Listen to an easygoing conversation of how to perceive ourselves as this holographic being - opening to intuition, creativity and love as we heal ourselves into a higher level of understanding and an extended expression of consciousness and spirituality.www.RobinKelly.co.nz

Our Common Future?After 30 years of having an independent foreign policy NZ has now been maneuvered back into ANZUS, under the US umbrella in what is said to be the 'Subversion Of NZ’s Independence.'In the last 10 years there has been a concerted effort within both the NZ Military and Treasury to get NZ back under the wing of the American eagle.This is now virtually complete.But why Treasury? What are the ramifications?Waihopai in Blenheim, SAS in Afghanistan are our key chess pieces, however US troops in NZ, NZ engineers in the US and Navy exercises (Rimpac) are all part of the greater plan.
Nick Hager in his book 'Other Peoples Wars' clearly shows that there is another agenda running, that which entangles us in a dark and brutal side of secret missions and 'black ops' that defines the challenges that confront NZers who have no idea what is happening behind the scenes.Where once NZ had a strong nationwide network of peace groups, these have faded away many having been lead by older matriarchs, dedicated to their children's future. The same for journalism, we once had insightful articles that were actually published and occasional documentaries on TV also. Now, we have virtually nothing!Warren Thomson's call for NZ to let's have no enemies, let's have friends instead and that we send out emissaries of goodwill, assisting in education, health, housing, justice and conflict resolution as being a sane one to involve ourselves.Where NZ has been a moral force in the world that was seen as a fair an honest broker, there has now been a shift in the balance to one where we are clearly perceived as not the independent country we once were.If you love your children, what kind of future do you want to leave them?www.converge.org.nz/abc
John Seed is an Australian environmentalist and director of the Rainforest Information Centre which successfully campaigned to save the sub-tropical brainforests of New South Wales, other forests in Tasmania and across Australia and beyond.He is also a prominent figure in the deep ecology movement including eco psychology and is co-creator of the Council of All Beings, and other re-earthing processes.An activist to his last breath, John encourages us to keep hurling ourselves at this question of how do we usher in a new change of consciousness and to awaken to who we are … whilst furthering our connection within the web of life and the planet as a whole, that of deep ecology - Gaia.Listen how he uses Facebook to fundraise globally, calling on the spirit of voluntarism as one of the few hopes the world has.
Encouraging the locavore diet, eating food from your local area, as against importing it from the other side of our planet. Including, connecting weekly into a local food cooperative called 'Food Connect' to purchase a box of fresh organic veggies.(The NZ equivalent is Ooooby)Transition Bondi where John again connects into is an extension of Transitions Towns http://www.transitionsydney.org.au where they have as an example, their own bees and an aquaponic system.Our equivalent here in NZ is www.transitiontowns.org.nzListen to a man who remains a leading activist around the globe, tell stories that empower and encourage us to instigate positive change to restore the earth and bring community closer together. Be it India, Africa, and Ecuador.In 1995 he was awarded the Order of Australia Medal by the Australian vGovernment for services to conservation and the environment.For more information about deep ecology experiential workshops, please see;

A two stage interview, where Bruce passionately states the challenges to our collective future and then enthuses us to individually - spontaneously evolve a new way of being and thinking.He says we are so more fortunate here in NZ where community is far closer, and that by taking the opportunity to participate and leading within our neighborhood, we can work together. This by strategising and activating innovative templates embracing an ecology of commerce, that embeds a social and community component into our daily lives. This takes us back towards being more pristine within nature plus going forward, embracing more joy, connection and creativityBruce covers his visit to India, the resurgence of organic farming across India in particular Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh and how larger numbers of people are changing their lives through right livelihood, not only by farming sustainably, but eating healthy produce, as well integrating Ayurvedic principles into their daily life.
This superbly successful enterprise show's the way for others to replicate across the sub-continent.www.organicindia.comIn another example Bruce enthusiastically tells of a student radical Paul Soglin, getting elevated into local politics in the small city of Madison, Wisconsin USA, that then reinvents itself as a dynamic, innovative and caring community, introducing the first day care programs and reforms to the city's hiring of women and minorities. Plus visionary inner city building programs, planning and much more. Enabling, Madison's bond rating (per Moody's Investment Services) to be upgraded to AAA status.Under the Mayors Leadership, Paul Soglin, inspired the council and community to enable Madison to be named to the most livable cities list several times during his second tenure as mayor, capturing the number one spot in 1996 and again in 1998 in the USA.http://www.cityofmadison.com/mayor/about/bio.cfmSpontaneous evolution starts with us 'in the moment' and as a being composed of 50 trillion cells, it is how we connect with who we are in the inner world and the outer environment that supports us. When we realize the dynamics between these two interfacing realities and recognize the possibilities of momentous change - magic happens!And we are all collectively responsible for what he says we can call 'the garden.'Bruce Lipton: www.brucelipton.com
