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…

<p>It's a future of skin and bones.</p>Thinner

The next trend in food will be something called" decalorization" -- the opposite of our current trend to provide food with as many calories in them as possible. Instead, vending machines will offer food with miniscule calorie counts, and food scientists will seek to make existing foods less caloric. Chemical processes will develop that will prevent the human body from effectively making use of calories in food, which will mean that we will be able to eat the same amount of the same sorts of food, but take in a much smaller amount of calories.

The result of this will be a reversal of a national trend toward weight gain. Indeed, some people will find it hard to get enough…

Get In The Game

When I was a little girl, I knew I was going to grow up to be an athlete. I went to bed at night imagining my career as a figure skater or a basketball star or a ballerina, but that one would really be a hobby. I saw the adult world as one of fun and possibilities.

Then I grew up.

There are no long days practicing my triple lutz, and I haven’t picked up a tennis racket since I was 17. What happened to this exciting world of sports and athleticism?

The lack of regular physical activity available to the standard American desk jockey has obesity rates skyrocketing. We sit on our couches expanding and the plot of the movie WALL-E becomes dangerously close to a reality. 

As I…

<p>It's time we started publishing rambling books in the US.</p>I wanna ramble

Thanks to wearable devices like the FitBit that encourage users to walk long distances, American will soon adopt the English tradition of rambling. More than just a long hike, a ramble is a leisurely walk, but one with special laws applied to it. There is the right of way, in which walkers are given priority in traffic situations, and the right to roam, which allows ramblers to walk on privately owned but uncultivated land. This allows ramblers to walk long distances, often in unexpected places, with impugnity.

These sorts of public hikes will become so popular that trails will develop, even in urban settings, where it will be common to see ramblers at all hours. These trails will develop intro…

Sea of Energy

You can run from it. It will find you. You can descend into the deepest cavern of our planet or zoom out into the farthest galaxy but you can’t hide. It is everywhere. It is the essential substrate of existence and it is all that is. It is energy. We live in a sea of energy that is very real and is completely and wholly pervasive. There is nowhere in the entire universe of creation where energy is not.

Fortunately for us, along with the other living beings on this planet, we have adapted well over millions of years to the presence of energy in the natural universe. Certainly there are variances of the energy spectrum that can put us…

<p>There will be a lot of these in our future.</p>The future of little folk

There are many odd things ahead thanks to science's unprecedented ability to alter the human genome, but the strangest of all will be a religious sect known as the Tuatha De Danaans. This cult will draw inspiration from ancience Irish legend, and will alter their genes so that every generation becomes more and more like characters from Irish myth.

There will be tiny men who are very similar to leprechauns, and wailing women known as banshees, and giants named for the great Finn McCool. Their genetic modifications will allow them to do things ordinary humans are incapable of: Bog witches will glow in the dark, while wild men will have thickened soles that allow them to walk across bramble and…
