Mysterious Skin

Masquerade

What is beauty, this mystery that shrouds my skin?
This thing that casts an odd glow on my rather-not-mentioned sins.
Here I stand with wrinkles and lines, still the same person only slower,
Still the same person only duller.

Do my lines define me?
I think they do…
They define not what I think of myself but what is viewed of me.
I’ve grown to loathe all the grey bits that sporadically appear on my head,
Not until I’m fifty! Or closer to agéd death.

How does one keep their cool while trudging this line called life?
How does one stop the clock that slowly penetrates the nights?
My greys and aged skin do not bask humbly by the window –
Willingly waiting for moments of thrilling youthful endeavours.

I, nay, we all sit by this folly,
Braving the days… or maybe not so much bravery when it comes to the uncertain.
Still, life gives little choice to those who breathe this air,
And eventually, unless we die young, we all face the call of the aging glare.

Happyness – Where Art Thou?

enhanced-28101-1403894385-12-1

 If you try to find happiness outside of yourself with people or things, then it is fleeting, and it’s not true happiness. This is surfaced. True happiness lies within. And in order to be happy with people and the things around you, you first have to be happy with yourself.

So, here are some steps to being truly happy:

  1. Sit down and get to know who you are… people spend their entire lives with themselves, and some leave this world not even knowing who they truly are. Get to know yourself. How do you do this? Talk to yourself… If you find that you’re reacting a certain way to something, ask yourself why you do that. Mind you, an external voice won’t answer but keep asking yourself questions and you will eventually get answers. No one knows you better than yourself.
  2. Like yourself. This is sadly not as easy as it sounds. But here’s the crazy thing… If you find that you don’t like yourself, then you’re doing something or some things that you know isn’t/aren’t aligned with who you really are. Find out what those things are and avoid doing them. Not liking yourself is never just a surfaced thing like – being too fat or skinny or short or tall or pale or dark. These are all surfaced, and this surfaced dislike is coming from somewhere deeper – sit down, be patient with yourself and figure it out. Aren’t you worth it?
  3. After learning to like yourself, now what you do is love yourself. Treat yourself like you treat a loved one. Appreciate yourself, do things that you like to do, and find and follow whatever makes you feel good in a positive way. Over time, you’ll find that you can call yourself one of your best friends. You know who you are, you appreciate yourself and you love yourself.
  4. Happiness for all. Once you start to love yourself, you will find that being truly happy is not a fabled existence. Once you’d gotten to know yourself, you’d have found out what makes you feel good and what makes you feel shitty. In order to have true happiness, you should constantly be aware of steps 1-3 and ceaselessly put those steps into play. This is a continuous journey, once you stop any of those 3 points, there’s a good chance your inner feeling of happiness will become stilted and stuck. But, being happy is not something that’s difficult – you just have to be patient with yourself and follow your little joys every day. And, before you know it, you’ll be living a happy life. heavy-black-heart

Rhyme and Rhythm

For years I lived relentlessly as a juggernaut,
Souring through space like an astronaut.
Then you cracked me open like a coconut,
And soon I was no longer an argonaut.
As my veins split open and you seeped through,
I could no longer think clearly with the same views,
I was drowning in emotions of what I couldn’t tell,
Like you’d found me and put me under some voodoo spell.
You made me yearn for your touches and your smiles,
You made me cry with your words and your wiles.
I felt weak ‘cus you turned me into a puddle,
So I would seek just to corrupt this riddle.
But now I’m simply chilling by the side,
Letting these waves wash over me like a tide.
I’ve given up on trying to figure out this love thing,
And will just wait for my death by your heart strings.

 

Motionless Movements

Sometimes I feel like I’m fading – like I’m drifting between worlds at such a pace that my movements become blurred and distorted.

There are times when I feel the intensity of my existence, and it calms me – lulling me into a sense of blissful awareness.

While other times, I feel suffocated by the pull, by the noise and the hushed breaths that escape my lungs.

My existence is in motions, but I feel stilled sometimes, like I’m standing in quietude while the world moves around me.

I know I’m not still. I’m never really still. I’m always moving, feeling, knowing and screaming.

This is my insides, but I remain still.

The Theory of Love

pinky-love

Love, such a tricky thing. Where does it come from? Why do we experience it? And, is it really the root of all evil? Okay, maybe that last question is a bit off, but love does hold a certain kind of je ne sais quoi that makes it easy to theorize until we’re personally satisfied.

We all have our stories and different approaches when it comes to love – some try to avoid it at all cost, many search for it with an almost obsessive passion, and others, well, they just leave it to fate.

Scientists suffice that the brain produces its own substances that are involved in bonding. That it’s thanks to certain chemicals and hormones why your heart swoops. According to science, there are a variety of different neurochemical processes and external stimuli that have to click in the right complex and the right sequence for someone to fall in love. Plausible…possibly… But one cannot help thinking that the beauty of love is not just because of neurotransmitters and chemicals like serotonin and dopamine. That’s not very romantic now is it? And love is supposed to be this amazing, romantic thing, right?

That’s why many of us find it so easy to believe that we are destined to be with someone – that one mate for our soul. We meet, fall in love, and (for those who are a bit dreamy) live happily ever after. But is that really love? Is it really that beautiful romantic thing that so many of us crave to find with that one special person? Or, is it something of a more sinister nature? I mean, many have died because of love. And a heartbreak, oh a heartbreak can be the worst kind of pain. Still, we search, whether intentionally or not, we all have, at one point or another, been a slave to those four letters.

We cannot orchestrate falling in love with someone, either it’ll happen or it won’t. And many times we’re not even aware of that exact moment when it does happen. If you think you do, then you, my friend, are reaching because when you sit down and really think about it you will find that it’s not actually that exact instant when you fell in love that you remember, but it’s the epiphanic moment when you realized that it had, in fact, already happened.

Maybe it’s chemicals dancing up a storm in our brains, or maybe it’s a fateful connection on a soul level. Whatever it is, the bottom line remains, it’s called falling in love for a reason. Because once you’re in, baby, and I mean truly in, it can be one of the most heart-wrenching and agonizing experiences to get out of. But, hey, don’t let that deter you from enjoying it when it does happen. Love, despite the pain and suffering that goes along with it, does hold the absolute best feeling you’ll ever have in this lifetime – especially when the person that you’re in love with loves you back with just as much passion, or more.

Fluoride, the Pineal Gland and the Masses

f3011b72eb61b7e95a9e98f82b25068863bb2983

It has recently come to my attention that fluoride is being added to our breakfast tables, lunch fixes, snacks and family dinners. How? Through fluoridated salt.

In 1987, at the encouragement of a dentist (don’t know who this dentist is) from the country’s Ministry of Health, Jamaica’s only salt producer began producing and selling fluoridated salt. The Ministry of Health and the Jamaican Parliament completed the necessary legal and regulatory framework, and the government provided biological and chemical monitoring of the salt. This decision to fluoridate our salt came after the fact that it was not feasible for them to implement water fluoridation beyond the capital city of Kingston.

Now, Jamaica is just one of several countries around the world that has implemented a mass fluoridation system to an (unsuspecting) population. And I say “unsuspecting” without reservation because it is very clear that most people, subjected to this level of control, have very little or absolutely no awareness of the actual harm and damages that this highly toxic substance is doing to their body and mind.

In terms of acute toxicity (the dosage that can cause immediate toxic consequences), fluoride is more toxic than lead, but slightly less toxic than arsenic. This is why fluoride has long been used in rodenticides and pesticides to kill pests like rats and insects. Did you know that an accidental over-ingestion of fluoridated dental products – including fluoride gels, fluoride supplements, and fluoridated water can cause serious poisoning incidents, including death?

In India, an estimated 60 million people have been poisoned by well water contaminated by excessive fluoride. These effects are particularly evident in the bone deformations of children. Additionally, a similar or larger problem is anticipated in other countries – including China, Uzbekistan and Ethiopia.

It’s simply amazing that governments around the world would go through such lengths in the name of cavity fighting, right?

A meta-analysis conducted on 27 epidemiological studies (most from China), concluded that exposure to “high levels” of fluoride in childhood was associated with a reduction in IQ. Not only that, but toxic levels of fluoride have also been associated with a weakening of bones and an increase in hip and wrist fractures. Is the health of our teeth really worth all that? I suppose I’m one who would rather take my chances without it.

Furthermore, studies over the years have shown that fluoridated salt (or water) does not show a direct effect in the decline in tooth decay, as other countries (who have never added fluoride to their water supply or salt) show the same results. According to data from the World Health Organization, there is no discernible difference in tooth decay between the minority of developed countries that choose fluoridation, and the majority that do not. A well-known toxicologist, Dr. John Doull, stated that the safety of fluoridation remains “unsettled” and “we have much less information than we should, considering how long it has been going on.”

In 2006, Doull’s committee at the National Academy of Science (in the US) published a lengthy 500-page review of fluoride’s toxicity. The report concluded that fluoride is an “endocrine disruptor” and can affect many things in the body – including the bones, the brain, the thyroid gland, the pineal gland, and even blood sugar levels. Further investigation is therefore called upon by the NAS to evaluate if there is a correlation between fluoride exposures and chronic health problems such as bone disorders, thyroid disease, low intelligence, dementia, and diabetes – particularly in people who are most vulnerable to fluoride’s effects.

There is indiscernible proof that fluoride not only affects your body but your mind. That’s not a ‘possibly’ or a’ maybe’ – it’s a fact. All you have to do is open your eyes and do a little investigating of your own; the information is already out there for you. The reason I got started looking into fluoride was because of my discovery of the pineal gland and what it’s capable of – what all of us are capable of.

The pineal gland looks like a pinecone, and was once said to serve no purpose to us, yet it so happens to exist as a giant statue in the courtyard of the Vatican; as well as on the pope’s rod; it’s a symbol also found in freemasonry; and in various paintings and statues of gods in different cultures and religions around the world. Curiously, the pineal gland is the sacred pine cone in man – the third eye.

So, let’s get down and dirty a little bit. The pineal gland is also known as the “seat of the soul”.  It actually affects your sleep/wake cycle, dreams, emotions, behaviour, intuition, memory, learning, and even your body temperature. Located in the middle of your brain, tucked in between the two hemispheres, the pineal gland is associated with discerning truth from illusion, spiritual growth and evolution, trusting intuition, intelligence, among others. Of course, scientists have only recently acknowledged its functionality – although they leave its purpose to the mere basic production of hormones.

It does, however, seem slightly strange that such an ‘innocuous’ organ seems to have quite a huge influence in cultures and religions around the globe for so many centuries. So here’s a list of interesting facts about the pineal gland:

  • The pineal gland is small, about the size of a pea.
  • The pineal gland becomes calcified around puberty.
  • The pineal gland produces serotonin, which is considered the “happy hormone”.
  • The pineal gland produces melatonin which is considered the “hormone of darkness” because it’s released in the dark, during sleep – and regulates daily body rhythms, most notably the day/night cycle (circadian rhythms).
  • During meditation, the pineal gland and pituitary glands have been shown to vibrate in unison.
  • The pineal gland produces DMT (dimethyltryptamine) which is known for otherworldly spiritual experiences.
  • The pineal gland has the second highest blood flow in the body next to the kidneys.
  • On the back of the US one-dollar bill is an image of a “third eye”. Hmmm
  • The pineal gland is outside of the blood-brain-barrier which technically makes it not in the brain.
  • The pineal gland has a lens, cornea, and retina like your physical eyes.
  • The pineal gland is light sensitive so it is stimulated by light.
  • ELF waves (extremely low frequency) adversely affects the pineal gland – unplugging all electronic devices (ELF devices) while you are asleep will help increase dream recall, lucidity and astral projection
  • Herbs like mugwort, wood betony, alfalfa, parsley, and gotu kola are great for the pineal gland.
  • Alkaline and distilled water help decalcify the pineal gland.

Additionally, unlike our regular eyes, the pineal gland has the ability to see both physically and intuitively. The metaphysical properties of the third eye are most noticeable when we are asleep. Try remembering almost falling asleep and then starting to see your surroundings with a 360-degree. Yup, this is your third eye being activated by your pineal gland. It is the all-seeing eye. This is why when you close your eyes and imagine hard enough, you can sometimes see what you are imagining in your mind’s eye.

Now, besides being beneficial for our physical health, this mysterious organ is also important for our spiritual health since it is the gland that anchors our soul to our body. This allows our soul and body to bond and communicate.

I know, at this point you’re probably wondering what fluoride has to do with any of this. Well, fluoride is proven to calcify the pineal gland by disrupting its natural functions and hardening its interior walls. Most of the fluoride in the body accumulates in the pineal gland, which is one of its reasons for calcification.

With a decalcified pineal gland, we are more connected to our soul; our higher senses are more active – allowing us to feel more connected to others, the universe and creation; our higher senses also make it harder for people to manipulate us. For these reasons, finding truth and inner peace becomes way easier.

A world where everyone is able to find their true potential, feel more connected to each other and the universe, and have a clearer sense of peace and happiness?  Why? When everyday billions of dollars continue to keep the (few) comfy, comfy – and the majority of the population under control? How better to do that, but through supplies that can easily penetrate our homes and everyday lives – water and salt. Is all of this really in the name of cavity fighting? Come on! Remember decades and centuries ago when ‘civilised Christian’ men would go to faraway lands in the name of Christianity to convert the ‘savages’ and help them on a new path, but what they really did was pillage, take lands that didn’t belong to them, kill, rape and enslave. Well, a similar thing has been happening for many years – however, it’s not Christianity and the word of God that’s being spread this time, it’s the fighting of cavities. Unfortunately, people who have more power tend to take advantage of those who are weaker, usually under a guise – and to keep a person weak and powerless is to take away the knowledge of their actualised potential and true individual powers.
