Allowing 18 year olds to drink…

Lately there has been a resurgence of the debate about letting 18 year olds buy and drink alcohol. This is a funny question to me because the answer is so obvious. But for those of you who haven’t thought about it, and for those of you who know the truth but have to lie because your soul is owned by Alcohol companies, let me clear it up for you.
Yes, we should allow 18 year olds to buy and consume alcohol. And here are the reasons.

  1. Making alcohol and other drugs illegal removes any type of normal encounter someone might have with a substance. It leads to over consumption and encourages binging because of the limited access to that substance.
  2. 18 year olds are able to vote in elections. If these people are able minded enough to “Pick” the leaders of our Nation, then surely they are mature enough to consume alcohol.
  3. Someone 18 years old can own a handgun and serve in the military. If you are able to buy and possess a firearm, and represent The USA in a military theater then you should be able to have a drink of alcohol.
  4. Someone 18 years old can have Medical Marijuana, Pain medication, and Nerve medication. Someone who can legally smoke weed, take Oxycontin, and take Xanax should be allowed to drink alcohol.
  5. And finally the greatest reason: Prohibition of any substance is a vicious cycle that leads to a thriving black market, unsafe situations, and higher costs. Humans have always drank alcohol and experimented with mind altering substances. Demand creates supply. When you make something illegal you automatically create a criminal class. A thriving black market is created around the illegal substance leading to shady situations and lots of illegal money transfer without taxation.

These large alcohol companies and politicians know this, but it suits their agenda to have prohibition. If the drinking age was lowered and drugs were legalized, people would actually consume less. That would lead to alcohol and pharmaceutical companies making way less, and the government having less access to everyone’s lives.
So in summary let me say again: Prohibition is bullshit! Lower the drinking age! End the War on Drugs! Set the Captives Free!

Is the Earth Quarantined?

NASA suffered yet another botched launch yesterday.  They were planning to fly “Hypersonic” vehicles out of the atmosphere.  The stated goals were “The Falcon Hypersonic Technology Vehicle program is exploring high-speed air vehicles designed for rapid, around-the-world reach. Project goals are to develop hypersonic technology for a glided or powered system, as well as advance small, low cost, and responsive launch vehicles.”  The Hypersonic vehicles can reach Mach 19 (19 times the speed of sound). 
NASA has suffered many botched launches in its career.  Every time it has been rumored to be taking “Star Wars” technology or Space Weapons off of the planet.  Of all the Governments many agencies, NASA and The Air Force have been well informed of all UFO and Extraterrestrial phenomenon on Earth.  The Air Force would have been in the perfect position to both investigate and also cover up the phenomenon.  While NASA would be in the perfect position to benefit from any contact or reverse engineering that may result from the phenomenon.  Many high ranking Military officials have theorized that the “Star Wars” missile defense system is really an offensive weapon intended to be used against Extra Terrestrials.  AlfredLambremont Webre, a Vancouver based futurist; author; Yale educated eco-lawyer and White House liason says Star Wars and the militarization of space is part of the information war against the integration with Universe society.  Star Wars is an ‘inside code word’ for this war among the military planners.  The issue is whether our space technology will be in accord with Universal principles, or controlled by a military empire. The USA will ultimately suffer ignominious defeat by Universe society should it persist as a space military power.”
This sentiment has been echoed again and again.  But ‘why would Earth be quarantined’ you might ask.  Well if you ask this question then you probably have not been paying attention for the last 3000 years.  Humans are brutal, we not only are capable of primal battles for ones existence.  We are also capable of the much more chilling use of fear and manipulation to control.  Our leaders have not been above using totally false propaganda to distort reality in the past.  And there is the very real possibly that Extra Terrestrials have already made contact with humans, but that it has been covered up, or that there was some sort of technology swap for a base on earth or the access toabducties for research.  Our primary goal on this planet with both science and religion has been the study of warfare.  How to kill and submit someone else.  If you disagree I encourage you to take a closer look at your religion.  Although the Great Teachers of your faith may say one thing, their followers seemingly do another.  Leading to Religious conflict that has lasted for ages and seems to be nowhere near stopping, in fact it is escalating.  The same thing with Science.  All of the technologies that we have as a society have come down from the Military, who screened them first to see if there was any way to use that technology to control or kill people.  The explosion of technological growth that we have seen in the last 50 years has increased this exponentially.  The amount of deaths in each major war of the last century grew exponentially from the previous war.  Hugo DeGaris predicts a “Gigadeath” in the next major war, resulting in at least a billion killed.  These all seem like reasonable reasons to quarantine the earth.
In the Multi-verse there are bound to be civilizations that are both ancient and God-like compared to earth.   These civilizations will have no doubt passed beyond our current state of paltry struggle.  They may look at earth with a sense of pity and wonder, allowing us a bit more time to work out our petty differences before they reveal themselves.  Or they may look on us with a sense of concern and dread.  Our technological explosion appears to be just a taste of what is possible.  And we have used it only to destroy and oppress.  Perhaps there is Universal Concern that a promising seed seems about to flower, but that it may destroy itself first.  However we are perceived by The Universal Community, we can be sure of being bared entrance and acceptance as long as we use fear and greed to manipulate and control.  Why would someone healthy choose to admit a deathly ill and contagious madman and thief into his inner sanctuary with his loved ones and treasures?  Why would a Great Teacher, Leader, & Scientist give a murderer a God-Like technology?
So what do you think?  Is the Earth Quarantined?

Pictures from Punsavana

A couple of recent pictures.  The top one is Natalie and I on our unborn babies Punsavana.  And the lower one is Natalie from a couple of weeks ago.  She is much rounder now.  Little Los is growing quick! 🙂

A recursive phenomenon

When I was younger I had a veracious appetite for The Divine. My quest led me many places associated with many faiths. One place that it led me was to a Pentecostal Christian Church. For several years I was an avid Christian, on fire for the Lord and willing to go to great lengths to “save” souls. The Bible was my Sacred Scripture, even going so far as to get a concordance and checking the passages in the original Hebrew and Greek. While going to church, I would play music and dance passionately. I would literally beg and cry for Jesus and God to fill me with the Spirit, and to speak through me. I would empty my mind of self and roll around on the floor babbling meaninglessness and laughter like a madman. All with the intention of connecting to a higher power. All with the willful intention of opening my mind to other consciousness.
One night, while alone and sleeping on my mother’s living room couch, I was awoken by a strange phenomenon. My body froze in paralysis and I felt a pressure on my chest. The room was pitch black but I sensed a presence near my feet. My primal reaction was one of terror. Suddenly a high pitched, whisper breathing like voice rang out loudly and clearly inside my head. “I am Jesus…” it said. This was no voice from without, this voice came from within. The strange and scary voice was accompanied at the same time by a wave of “chills” and “goose bumps” that ran from my feet to my head covering my entire body. Instantly the paralysis broke and I sat straight up and turned on the lights.
That was nearly 10 years ago. Since that time I have lived many places and been many people. I have grown and I have most definitely learned. But since that time, maybe 15 times I have awoken with a similar experience. Never have I heard the voice again. Never have I so clearly received a telepathic message. But each time I awake paralysed and filled with terror. There is always a fear that there is something near my feet at the bottom of the bed. Sometimes I feel as if there are several presences circling me and attacking me unawares. On some occasions I have attempted to yell for help or to reach out and touch my lover. On other occasions I have attempted to harness a powerful blast of mana or chi directed at them in the name of The True Creator & Destroyer. Most times I wake up with a sore neck, always in the same spot on my spine.
This could be a recursive dream that is highly lucid, but I never “wake up”, I just become unparalysed. It’s not as if I am having a bad dream and I snap out of it. It’s more as if I awake from sleep into the phenomenon.

But a Dream…

This is a new song that I am working on.  But a Dream…

Yesterday is but a dream…
Things are not what they seem…

Pictures of our baby boy- Carlos Gabriel Edwards Cardona II

Natalie and I found out that we are having a baby boy! Praise JAH! His name is Carlos Gabriel Edwards Cardona II. I send out a prayer of guidance, inspiration, and Divine Protection over his life. AUM

In this picture he is laying on his left side and holding his right hand up to his ear.  He is also flashing a peace sign.  I like to think that He is a peace activist and that he is hosting a “sit in” for babies rights!

Happy Punsavana! 120 days in the womb…

In many traditional cultures, the 120th day in the womb marked a rite of passage.  Muslims believe that at 120 days an Angel is sent to blow a spirit into the fetus.  The Angel then carries out 4 instructions :  to write down his livelihood, the span of his life, his deeds, and whether he is wretched or fortunate. Hindu’s also believe that a baby’s Spirit enters the fetus at 120 days, celebrating it with Punsavana, when special prayers are intoned for the protection and safe development of child and mother.  Science has come to back up these claims.  Brain activity truly picks up after 120 days, leading up to the baby dreaming at 161 days.   There are numerous other things which the fetus can do in this period. Such as expressing emotions (happiness, fear, disgust etc.) through it’s facial expressions. It can show anxiety through the sucking of the thumb, assert itself and protest through kicking, and it develops memory.

One other important development during this stage is the ability to distinguish and recognize sounds. Experiments have been carried out that proved this: – A newborn will prefer a story that has been read twice a day to it, when it was a fetus, to a new one.  –  A newborn will recognize and copy its mother’s words.  –  When a music was played, a newborn whose mother listened to that music during pregnancy, will calm down.

Today Natalie and I celebrate our baby’s 120th day in the womb!  Happy Punsavana!!  We have a thinker on our hands…


Is it real?

The desires and fears that we suppress, manifest physically.  Our life a symphony of synchronicity and miracles.  Think of all the decisions that each one of your ancestors made that led you to being here, now.  Every step, every choice.  Every life in the family tree that allowed you to be at this place at this time.  This is the Time of Great Potential.  A Time to weave magic and wonder into tapestries of mystery that will last all time.  This is also a Time of Great Deceit.  Ancient forces, controlling the world since the dawn of history, do not want to loose their grip on your mind and body, your spirit and soul. 
Now our Great Creator reveals Him/HerSelf.  Now our Great Destroyer triumphs.  Who will lift their voices in Praise during Tribulation?  Who will sing The Lords Name while crying?  Where is the Torch to light my path, the Lighthouse to bathe the shore in luminescence?  The aware wait vigilantly like monks, noting the seasons and looking daily toward The ONE.  To be alive now is a Most High Honor.  We are the most important link in the chain.  All of our ancestors led up to us.  And from us our descendants will flow, with more numbers than the stars in the heavens.  But the Earth is sick.  Our minds are sick.  The Universe is sick.  As above, so below.  This is a time of Great Confusion and Deceit, fear and greed being tuned and played like a dark orchestra.  To think independently is a crime.  The speak out about injustice, lunacy. 
Is it real?  My senses deceive.  The soft summer breeze kisses my cheek lightly.  Birds sing ancient melody.  But is it real?  What is it?  What is real?  Like a brain in a jar hooked up to electrodes, or a piece of self synthesizing software becoming aware, my spark is bright and flashing, my wave traveling outward at the speed of light.  But is it real?
