The Power of One

The Nineteen-seventies was the decade of the digital revolution. Computers existed long before that penultimate chapter of changing history but they came to the fore during the Age of Disco and the “Me Generation.” It was the 1970s when the world began to quantize the universe into a series of ones and zeroes. I was in Los Angeles at the time and perhaps no field popularized the acceptance of digital reality more than the field of recording popular music.

For the first century of recorded music, recorded sound existed in the same way that it exists in nature: as a continuously variable energy wave, an analog sound wave. The pulses of sound in air were actually waves of air molecules…

How We Lost Our Mind

Let’s start with something we all know. Every adult understands the concept that we have two parts of the mind, a conscious mind and a subconscious mind. We know the conscious mind’s role. It does stuff like analyze and calculate. It looks at data and offers opinions as to right action. In short, the conscious mind thinks. But it wasn’t always that way.

The subconscious, on the other hand, runs everything else. It controls all bodily functions, ranging from digestion, heart rate, blood pressure, immune system, muscle movement, eye focus, perspiration to everything else. It organizes the repair of damaged cells in the event of trauma, operates body systems when we sleep and more. The subconscious doesn’t think. It feels.…

The Hidden Pitfalls of GMOs

Heartland Healing and The Reader are hardly late-comers to the GMO issue. The Reader published our first cover story on the subject way back in 1996, before most people could spell GMO. By now, most people realize that GMO is the popular acronym for “genetically modified organism.”

Simply put, GMOs are the product of major corporations like Monsanto, Syngenta, Bayer, DuPont and BASF. By arcane science, a piece of genetic material is removed from one species (like fish, bacteria or mice,) and inserted into another species (like a tomato or corn plant or soybean). It’s obviously something that couldn’t be accomplished in Nature or by regular husbandry techniques such as cross-breeding cattle. That is, unless some alchemist wizard farmer out…

They Don’t Teach These in Medical School

The Journal of Patient Safety puts the number of people killed in American hospitals by preventable medical errors at 440,000 yearly. The complete number is much higher, but even using the 440K figure, that’s the equivalent of 60 Jumbo Jet crashes every month killing all on board. How long would we let an industry operate that crashed two Jumbo Jets full of people every day? Would you willingly get on a Jumbo Jet with those odds? Think you might look for an alternative?

American medicine is amazing when it comes to trauma and emergency medicine. But for chronic complaints and illnesses, general overall healthcare, our conventional approach is pretty narrow. The majority of Americans now turn to alternative medicine before…

Top Ten Rules for Healthy Living

Being healthy is our natural state. When we’re not healthy, it means something has gotten out of balance. In order to keep the body in harmony with that natural state we must align with — wait for it — Nature. That’s not always easy to do considering how modern society has assaulted and insulted the planet. But with only a modicum of effort, we can modulate the damage by adjusting behavior. This Top Ten List is loaded with seemingly simplistic suggestions, in no particular order. When you try them, you’ll see the discipline required.

Drink Water. The planet and our bodies are both about 75 percent H2O so it makes sense to keep it that way. Here’s the rub: most…

Fear is Not an Option

Life is simpler than you thought. There are but two emotions that energize our existence, that drive our behavior. At any given moment we are experiencing the emotion of Love or of fear. Once we examine the choice, we realize fear is not an option.

Love expands, includes, welcomes. Fear is Love’s opposite. Fear blocks, constricts, immobilizes. When we are afraid, expansion is impossible. Fear temporarily blocks the flow of Love. Love will continue. That is why fear is futile.

When a system blocks energy, whatever that system is, it will fail and destroy itself. A car engine that runs out of the oil that keeps the resistance low will blow up. The electricity flowing through the wall of the…

Don’t Be a Toaster: Redux

In Heartland Healing for June 2, 2015, we wrote about the swamp of seemingly dangerous energy we’ve created with our Age of Technology. Massive power lines drape the continent, indeed, the world. Long-range Extremely Low Frequency radio waves, dozens of miles long, batter the earth’s crust, core and oceans just for the sake of communicating with our submerged war machines. Our homes course with dirty electricity radiating from the walls, now enhanced by mandated Compact Fluorescent Lights. We microwave our food. (How good a practice could that be since we nicknamed it “nuke,” and “zap”?) We sit with energy-radiating laptops and iPads nestled near our gonads. We handle cell phones that generate powerful signals, pressing them against our brainpan, some…
