"Earth, the only planet with free choice in the Milky Way Galaxy"

“.. A billion years ago, they (Pleiadians) went through a change and they went through a shift, and they had free choice. Back then, they were the only planet that did in their time, and eventually they went through a metamorphosis of consciousness. ”

“.. So again, we tell you that the ones who came to help seed you approximately 100,000 to 200,000 Earth years ago were the Pleiadians who had gone into graduate status and who had changed consciousness. They had become quantum with free choice, and you have parts of their DNA within you. ..”

“..You're surrounded by divine beings who keep you safe and will continue while this planet of only free choice – the only one at the moment – makes its decision. You're turning the corner of consciousness and they all know it, for they've all been through it and they remember it. Oh dear ones, consciousness is volatile! You've seen it change so slowly, but it's about to change faster. It's not going to take generations and generations as in the past. Instead, you're going to see real-time changes. Humans won't wait to have children for them to grow up and have children. ..”




"The Quantum Factor" – Apr 10, 2011 (Kryon channeled by Lee Carroll) (Subjects: Galaxies, Universe, Intelligent design, Benevolent design, Aliens, Nikola Tesla (Quantum energy), Inter-Planetary Travel, DNA, Genes, Stem Cells, Cells, Rejuvenation, Shift of Human Consciousness, Spontaneous Remission, Religion, Dictators, Africa, China, Nuclear Power, Sustainable Development, Animals, Global Unity.. etc.) - (Text Version)

“.. In time, the quantum factor will be discovered on this planet. When it is, it will be highly controversial, and it's going to fly in the face of logic and 3D and the way things work via the scientific method. The ramp-up to all this is difficult. The old souls in front of me have signed on to work this new energy and they've waded through lifetimes, just waiting for this. What would you do as a scientist if the experiments before you had "a mind of their own"? What would you think if magnetics, gravity and light could only be assembled in a certain way that created healing and never a destructive alignment? All this is going to redefine some of the basic forces in the Universe. Intelligent design is only the first, and even today many astronomers and physicists still think it's an anomaly. 

That will be the next largest discovery on the planet. It's been held back from you because it takes a higher vibrating consciousness to create and understand it. When any planet discovers a quantum energy and is able to use it, you could go to that planet and know that you will meet high-consciousness entities. This has never been given to you before that, for within the quantum factor contains the secret of interplanetary travel using large, entangled states. There are ways of doing things you never thought could happen. You can throw away your rocket ships. You're on the edge of that.  ..”

“… And so, dear Human Being, you have the ability to start to return to an energy that you thought you'd lost, where Human beings are allowed to live longer and it doesn't destroy the environment. They don't overcrowd themselves because they can control it through their minds instead of laws... and through wisdom.

Some day you'll meet the star seeds, your Pleiadian sisters and brothers. They're even here now, since they are quantum. You've got Pleiadian ancestors who live a very, very long time in a graduate situation in a planet that went through the test just like yours. And it developed a quantum factor. They have benevolence and they have quantum energy. That's how they get here instantly and return, and they'll never interrupt your free choice. That's also why they don't land and say hello. Instead, they sit and cheer on the sidelines for what you've finally done. They are waiting with you to celebrate the December solstice of 2012... the half way point of the 36 year shift you are in. …”

Buddhist sutras bring 95-year-old Yunlin woman back from the dead

Want China Times, CNA and Staff Reporter 2014-11-24

A 95-year-old woman in Taiwan's southern county of Yunlin came back from the dead last week after her family played her recitations of a Buddhist sutra, the China Times, sister paper to Want China Times, reported Friday.

Yang Chang Yueh-yun, 95, was pronounced dead from multiple organ failure on Nov. 14 after being hospitalized for over 10 days, according to her son Yang Shun-wen.

She was then taken home, which funeral directors had made ready for a service. Recitations of a Buddhist sutra were played, in keeping with local religious tradition.

The next day, Yang's cousin decided to put earphones around her aunt and played her a different sutra, according to her family.

Yang Chang surprised her family when she started clapping and reciting the sutra about five minutes after a recording of the sutra was played.

Yang Chang surprised even more people when her son took her mother back to the hospital where she had stayed at the following day, to the utter astonishment of the doctor who had treated her.

On Thursday, members of a Buddhist group visited the old lady in the hospital. She greeted her visitors with smiles, while patients next to her said they felt amazed after she made conversation with them.

"REVELATIONS OF DARKNESS" – (a message from Kryon channelled by Lee Carroll)

Kryon.com, October 11, 2014

This live channelling was Given in Philadelphia, PA

Lee Carroll
To help the reader, this channelling has been revisited [by Lee and Kryon] to provide even clearer understanding. Sometime information is even added. Often what happens live has implied energy within it, which carries a kind of communication that the printed page does not. So enjoy this enhanced message given in Philadelphia on Oct 11, 2014.

Greetings, dear ones, I am Kryon of Magnetic Service. In a three-dimensional world, those here are in a meeting, sitting in a chair. Some of you are listening, but it's only your limited reality that has you listening with your ears. The truth is that this message goes beyond 3D information. My message is for old souls at this exact time on the planet, and the message is the revelation of darkness. It's not a dark message, but rather one of congratulations, of explanation, and more details perhaps than you wanted to know about things you would never want to know. But we cannot leave it alone, since you can't. We approach this subject gently, as gentle as we can for a Lightworker, an old soul on the planet who has felt nothing but high consciousness and love for most of their lives.

The Old Scale of Light and Dark

Where do we begin? Have you looked at your news lately? Are there some surprises about the way things are going? If you say yes to this, I will say to you that you weren't listening to my information that I've given many times. For two years, I have given information about this exact time. I told you that crossing this bridge of recalibration is going to upset the dark/light balance of energy on the planet.

Perhaps you have seen something called the scales of justice? The icon is a weight scale held by a blindfolded figure. The scale has two platforms balanced on each side. It looks like a chemist's scale, which some of you know about, and you are familiar with the metaphor. It represents the desire for balance in life, and especially in fairness and justice. It is the quest for balance in consciousness. I think you get the picture in your mind.

In the paradigm of light and dark, for thousands of years it hasn't been equal at all. It never has been in balance. One platform has what we will call dark consciousness and on the other platform, light consciousness. The one representing the dark has always been the winner.

Now, before we start, I want you to see what I did not say above. I did not say that on one platform there were evil spirits and dark entities. I didn't say that; I said dark consciousness. On the other side, I didn't say there were angels and spirits, devas and leprechauns. I didn't say that; I said light consciousness. I'm teaching now. I want you to know the difference in all of these things, and the difference is that the dark and light I'm speaking about right now is the consciousness developed by Human Beings.

For eons the scales have existed, and dark Human consciousness has outweighed the light. It has been out of balance and you know that. Your past life history has been part of the wars, the death and sorrow, and the survival consciousness that the planet has been engaged in. This is the main battle of the old soul on Earth, and you know it.

Envision that scale right now, in its lopsided manner, tilted, as the dark consciousness side weighs heavy. The light consciousness cannot get ahead and there is no balance. This is the way it has been lifetime after lifetime for you and all around you. It's the story of humanity on Earth.

What are the odds that you would turn this around? For 25 years, I have been telling you that the scales are changing. More than 25 years ago, they started to change and the light became more powerful and there was more of it, more quantum portions of it, more connection to the other side, and the balance started to change toward a more equal balance. World wars stopped, did you notice? Things actually got better on the planet, did you notice? Many countries have been working together with former enemies, instead of perpetuating old warring energy. Did you notice? A whole new concept had begun, a new paradigm, and the scales were beginning to be equal. The battle had begun.

The Battle Begins

When 2012 came along, the precession of the equinoxes occurred, and the new calendars of consciousness were applied. Humanity had made it, and I started talking about what would be next. I spoke about planting the seeds for a new paradigm of thinking, and in every channel I told you that the battle begins now.

I want to tell you something, Lightworker. When those scales started to move in the direction of balance, light did not become heavier in order to create that. Instead, what had to happen was that the light dismissed the dark. It reduced the amount of darkness and the scales started to move. The dark was losing its substance. Do you understand? As the darkness lost its substance (influence), the light started to rebalance the scales in its favor. We have always told you that darkness has no energy by itself. Darkness is simply the absence of light. Therefore by default, if there is more light, there will be less darkness.

Now, if you look at the scales right now, the light is winning. You've passed the marker into the potentials that the ancients spoke of. In a channelling some weeks ago, I identified this marker in West Virginia as The Wisdom Barrier. I instructed my partner to put this particular channelling in a place you could hear it and he did [Kryon free audio]. You'll be able to hear what the wisdom barrier is, what the benevolence factor is, and what these things are that have started to change the energy consciousness of the planet. But don't forget what you've done. You've provoked the dark consciousness! You've poked it and it's mad! You took out a bat of light and swiped at the nest. Are you hearing this? Darkness, for the first time, is in survival mode! Two years ago, we told you to be ready for the darkness. It will not give up without a battle, and now the battle is here.

Do Not Despair

There's too much information to give you in one channelling, in one sitting, so I refer to past messages for you to better understand and reference the information in order to get the bigger picture. So I wish to remind you of something I also told you in a recent channelling called Do Not Despair. You're winning! It's because you're winning that the dark consciousness on this planet is feeling it, and the humanity that represents darkness is pulling out everything it has to survive.

It Has Always Been There

Let's look at it, because it's all over the news. Are you shocked at the sudden existence of the organization that will remain unnamed [for this channelling]? Where did it come from? How could it be so organized? How could it be so well funded? This organization could have its own country soon! They might as well name it, “The Old Energy Dark Country”, for that's what it will represent.

The barbaric past of humanity comes forward to show its face. It has always been there, hiding under the rocks and between the cracks of civilized humanity. It couldn't show itself until now, but now it has to. It's ugly and it's not for the faint at heart, is it, dear ones? Seeing evil personified in Human action is abhorrent. It is so ugly and so dark that you cannot look upon it with a gentle heart. God is not a part of it and this is obvious.

You're winning! Light is winning! The uprising of dark consciousness would not have shown itself with this strength, or this quickly, if this were not so. This is exactly what I told you to look for, and it is proof that those representing this dark consciousness are in trouble. Dear ones, dark consciousness has always had a tried-and-true system. It lurks in the shadows and influences all the power places of the planet - government, commerce, finance. Suddenly, it can't hide there as well anymore and it's out in the open.

Where is the funding coming from? It is coming from a storehouse that has always been there, dear ones. It uses income that has been generated from low consciousness acts, collected for a very long time. Funding didn't just appear. It has been stored, waiting to be used in order to spread fear and darkness to save what they believe is their way.

Who Will Win?

Dear ones, they haven't got a chance! But it looks like they do, doesn't it? Everything that they are doing is calculated to scare you into submission. Are they winning? Now, that's a question I want you to take from here and examine every day.

Fear is black. If you're in fear, there is no light. You can be the grandest Lightworker, or even be the channeller, but if you're in fear, it doesn't matter how many years you've done light work, or how much light you've accumulated personally. It all goes away with fear, and then they've won the battle for your mind. Do you understand this?

The Strength of the Old Soul - YOU

Old souls, Lightworkers reading this, the experiences you have had over lifetimes and lifetimes are incredible! The old soul knows fear. I don't want to be too graphic, but I want you to understand! What was it like when you put your head in the guillotine because you talked about God in a way that was inappropriate? What was it like to be bound hand and foot when they lit the match at your feet? Old soul, that's fear! You carry those experiences in your Akash.

I want to tell you they haven't got a chance to scare you! You absolutely know what fear is, and they haven't got a chance as long as you cling to that part of you that is the strength of God. You've been through it all. That means you've got the weapons of truth, wisdom and light. Don't forget it. Don't forget who you are!

Do you see how fast they assembled? It seemed like only yesterday that there was no organization at all. Where did they come from? Have you noticed a certain hesitancy to fight them? Why is it that the citizens of the lands that they are invading are hesitant to fight them? Instead, these leaders are calling on others to help. Why is it that the others are also hesitant? I want to show you that there are some anomalies of logic that are not making sense, because this is a battle you have never seen before on this planet. We've expected it, but you haven't. It's about consciousness, not land or resources.

How to Win?

We gave you the secret before of how to defeat them without taking even one life: Simply take away their funding. They cannot exist without their funding. The funding has to be organized, stored, and distributed. It has to be generated in such a way that it must also go through institutions. Did you hear that? All you have to do is stop the system. Winning won't be done with bombing. It's going to be done with intelligence, clever thinking and financial forensics. It's time to get smart on some of these things and not to be afraid to look at this puzzle differently than you have before. Do not apply the energy they are using in order to fight them, because you won't win. Figure it out. It's the last bastion of organized darkness and evil thinking on this planet coming together to try to survive the assault of your light. Don't be afraid to look at the funding trail, no matter where it takes you.

Fear is Their Weapon

I want you to know something as you look at your news. It may appear that you are unable to stop them. In many places, they will gain strength as they create fear. The fear is easily created in those who are not old souls and who don't know fear like you do and who don't have the armor of your spiritual experiences. This puts you in the front line, dear one. Did you realize that? But you don't have to go fight them on their terms. All you have to do is broadcast light. High consciousness will beat fear any day.

Definitions of Darkness and Evil

There's more. Would you define evil for me? This is a lesson that some of you need to hear and that some of you will not look at, because Human Beings want to assign evil to entities. Many Humans want to put evil in another box, not a Human box. The old energy wants to stick to traditional mythology, and it's time you knew the truth. For years, there has been belief in evil spirits and evil entities. These are thought to be outside forces that battle humanity for control of the light.

Dear ones, I would like to tell you what evil really is. Evil is the manifestation of a dark energy within a Human Being or group of Human Beings who, on purpose, take this darkness and generate it, amplify it, and focus it. Certain dictators of the planet did it perfectly, and you saw them. No outside evil spirits were involved or needed. A few Humans were able to focus and manifest it so well that everyone around them cooperated with it and bought into it. That's evil. They didn't even need a convenient entity with horns and a tail. They did it themselves. This is what Humans can do!

This is a powerful attribute of humanity, and light and dark energy can go both ways. Through free choice, humanity can create light or dark. This ability is generated by the incredible power of humanity and the duality it carries. Humanity does not need outside help to create evil.

We told you before that in your Human civilization, free choice has placed humanity at the crossroads of existence four times before on this planet. This is because the dark consciousness won those time periods. It's not that surprising either, since humanity was in survival mode all through these times and there was very little light from expanded spiritual thinking.

The Role of Gaia in Human Consciousness

One of those times might be frightening for you to know about, since it was a full cooperation with Gaia for your termination, and a pandemic almost wiped humanity off the map. A pandemic! Now, you say, "What has that got to do with Human consciousness, Kryon?" Pay attention, dear ones, because this is the day where the teaching was given by my partner, and he put together the Nine Human Attributes. One of the attribute sets included three Gaia attributes and one of them was the consciousness of the planet. Gaia is related to Human consciousness!

Are you starting to connect the dots? You are connected to this planet in a profound and spiritual way. As goes humanity goes the planet's consciousness. Gaia, Mother Nature, whatever you want to call it, cooperates with Human consciousness. If you spend 1,000 years killing each other, then Gaia will do its best to cooperate with your desires! Gaia will look at Human consciousness and try to help with what you have shown you like to do! Did you know this role of Gaia with you? It's a partner with you, fast tracking what you give to it. You may wish to review what the indigenous of the planet still understand. Gaia is a partner!

Pandemic: Don't you find it odd that in the last 50 years, when you have a population of seven billion Human Beings, with up to 2,000 airplanes in the air at any given moment, going between almost every conceivable place, that there has not been a pandemic in your lifetime? There have been five starts of potential pandemics over the last 20 years, yet none became serious. Did any of you put this together? Dear ones, when the world was far less populated a few hundred years ago, with no mass travel to spread a virus, there were still millions wiped out by a pandemic. With the increased population and mass travel, there is far more danger today than before. It doesn't make sense, does it? What happened to stop it?

When you know humanity's relationship to Gaia, it makes sense. Gaia is a life-force that is your partner, watching you change the balance of light and dark and reflecting what Humans want. It has polarity, too! Perhaps it's time to start your meditations with thanking your planet Earth for supporting you in the spirituality of your Akash, for always being with you, a life-force that is always present. The ancients started their ceremonies in that way. Have you forgotten?

Ebola

Now, I've just set the stage for the next subject, haven't I? Ebola. Are you afraid yet? Gaia is a life-force that is a part of Human consciousness. My partner put it on the screen today so you could see the connections [during the lecture series]. Now it's time to connect the dots. Dear one, Gaia is in the battle, too, for here comes something scary that you haven't had in your lifetime and you're afraid of it - the potential of a pandemic on the planet.

There's a very famous film that has some dialogue that my partner will quote. Some of you will know it and some of you won't, but here it is: "Have a little fire, scarecrow?" What are you afraid of? Darkness? Gaia is in the battle with you and is actively pursuing solutions through light. The energy of the planet is with you in this fight! The ebola virus is a shock and a surprise. It is propelled by ignorance and fear, so it can flourish. Look at where it started and look at how it gets its ability to continue. It expands its fear and power easily with those who believe it's a curse instead of those who understand the science.

Villages are filled with those who refuse to leave their family members because they believe the disease is a curse! FEAR! Instead of understanding that they should be in isolation from the virus, the family dies together through ignorance and fear. This represents how darkness works. Are you going to become afraid also? Dear ones, ebola will be conquered. Know this and be at peace. Pray for light for those in the villages who are afraid, that they can know more about how to keep the spread of this disease and live to see their families.

You Are Changing History

You are the ones who have caused this change, dear ones. Congratulations for shining a light so bright that you've got darkness on the run. The proof of this is in everything I just told you. Against all odds, you've got a virus without a cure. Against all odds, you've got a barbarian movement that is as evil and dark as you could imagine and has seemingly organized overnight. Against all odds, this organization has multiple funding sources, financial distribution, and plenty of help to scare everyone around it. So frightening is it that there are coalitions between countries that would never get together and agree on anything, yet they are now at the table figuring out how to fight the darkness. That's evil!

Evil is not created through outside forces any more than light is created through outside forces. Light and dark is a balance that humanity has the ability to pull in either direction. Did you hear that? You can go as dark as you want or as light as you want, and you have always had that ability. This is the duality that you have seen through your history, forever. However, you are in a situation where you have now come out of a barbarian age - thousands of years of conquering and killing and war - and you've turned a corner.

Again, I say to you: Do not despair! Generate the light that you came in with and stand tall and out of fear. "That's too simple, Kryon." Oh really? How do you think this planet has turned this major corner, dear Lightworker? Old soul, do you not understand that the light that you have is a multidimensional force? It is not linear. It is not the amount of it that is important. It's the intent of it and the truth of it. That is to say, a little goes a long way and old souls are extremely powerful in this department.

I close with this. More than 20 years ago, I sat in a chair just like this one with my partner. He was starting to open his mouth for the first time in front of a group. One of the first metaphors that he ever gave was called The Room of Darkness. I'm now going to give it again. For now, of all times on the planet, you need to hear it again. The dynamics of dark and light are not about quantity.

The Room of Darkness

You're in a room and it's dark and it's filled with many Human Beings. The room is so dark that you bump into each other. It's frightening not to be able to see who is next to you, or who they might represent, how big they are, what gender they are, or anything about them. You feel isolated.

You cling to your neighbor by holding hands. You find others who will hold hands with you, and you're safe as long as you hold hands. It's dark! Don't bump into the others! You don't know who they are or what they want. Only trust those you know who are holding your hand! The others are only after your resources! It's best if you can come together, perhaps build a little city of your own, then put walls around it so that the "others" can't get you. You can't see! It's dark. They could have weapons, they could be after you. You just don't know. You can't see them.

For hundreds, if not thousands, of years, this parable represented the consciousness of the planet. You separated, you combined, you defended. Others who were, indeed, in the dark, conquered any lands that they could overrun with their power.

In this dark room, suddenly there appears a Lightworker, an older soul. He lights a match. Now a match doesn't create much light, but if you're in a totally black room, a little light goes a long way. Suddenly, the room changes. It's not flooded with light, but you can start to see around you, dimly. You can see your neighbors for the first time! They are just like you - afraid! Shortly, Humans start to drop the walls; they break the circle and stop holding hands with only their family. Instead, they find other hands to hold, and they find other circles are just like they are.

Many want to know where the light came from. They don't even know the name of the match bearer, do they? Did the match bearer have a doctrine? No. Did the match bearer have an organization to join or promote? No. What did the match bearer have? Light! Many want more of it. They look at the match bearer and they say, "May we share the fire from your match?" The answer is yes, and suddenly there's even more light. Others then go and share their light from their matches. With every match, there's more light, and now many can see each other clearly. With the light, there's no reason at all for fear. The darkness is gone.

This is the metaphor of the light consciousness on the planet, slowly increasing. We gave this story to you 20 years ago. We did it then because we knew about the potential of today and your battle with the dark.

Shine your light by how you react to all this and by staying out of fear. The whole world will be brighter for it. The darkness, the pandemic, no dark thing can survive your light! This is the truth of the time you have waited for. I want you to carry this concept home. It's profound, isn't it?

I told you it was coming and now here it is. Deal with it, dear ones. I just told you how. You're winning the battle. Don't watch the news for your truth, for it will make you fear. After all, it's their job. Understand this, and be wise in a time of change.

And so it is.

Jack Ma's problem: what to do with all his money

Want China Times, Staff Reporter 2014-11-16

Jack Ma. (File photo/CNS)

Jack Ma, the founder and executive chairman of Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba, recently said that he is looking for ways to use his wealth to give back to society and wants to compete with Microsoft founder Bill Gates to spend money more efficiently on charity.

"It's even more difficult to spend money than to make it," Ma stated while elaborating on his business operating philosophy at this year's Singles Day shopping festival event on Nov. 11.

He added that he was unhappy of late and found being the country's richest man "a great pain." He believes that the record-setting US$25 billion that his company's IPO was valued at may have contributed to this stress.

Ma saw his fortune swell to US$19.5 billion after Alibaba stood at a record-breaking US$25 billion IPO on the New York Stock Exchange on Sept. 19. The company's share price closed at US$114.54 on Nov. 12, almost twice its offer price of US$68.

He further noted that Alibaba's listing was not meant to make money. Instead, it was meant to make the company's governance more transparent by putting it under the supervision of its shareholders and users around the world.

"The primary reason for going public was that it calls for more transparent corporate governance and puts stock investors and users around the world in a position to supervise the company and take part in its development," the executive chairman explained.

Ma also pointed out that he intended to get Alibaba listed in the stock market in Shanghai. "For various reasons, Alibaba cannot be listed on the A-share market, but we hope Alipay can list on it in the future," he added.

Alipay is the country's most popular online payment tool launched by Alibaba.

Since Alibaba went public, Ma said that he has been under tremendous pressure due to high expectations from investors. "The stock value may rise; people may have high expectations of you; I may just think too much about the future and have too many things to worry about," he said.

The founder of the e-commerce giant admitted that while being a rich man was good, being the richest man in China was not. "It's a great pain because when you're (the) richest person in the world, everybody (is) surrounding you for your money," he stated during an interview with CNBC at his company's headquarters in Hangzhou the same day.

In order to get rid of this "pain," Ma noted that he was looking at ways to use his money to give back to society.

He affirmed that he is considering establishing a foundation that can "spend money following a business-like framework." He may even compete with the other global billionaires in this regard.

"The competition is probably between me and Bill Gates-who can spend money more effectively and who can be a better philanthropist," he said.

India seeks to cash in on global demand for ancient remedies

India's new government has launched a drive to promote the country's ancient therapies as it seeks to cash in on the multi-billion dollar global market for holistic medicine.

India claims to have natural remedies for everything from cancer to the common cold, but ministers say it has failed to capitalise on its traditions as the world has woken up to alternative medicine.

Hindu nationalist Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a teetotal vegetarian who practices yoga daily, has said he wants the world to make Ayurveda "a way of life" -- and in doing so expand India's share of the growing global market for holistic medicine.

Earlier this month he appointed India's first minister for Ayurveda, yoga, naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and homeopathy -- known as the AAYUSH ministry -- and has also called for an international yoga day.

"Call it whatever -— Ayurvedic medicines or herbal medicines or traditional medicines –- the global market is estimated at about $100 billion today," former health minister Harsh Vardhan told a recent conference on Ayurveda in New Delhi.

"India's share in this is negligible because quality standards are not maintained to international specifications. The government has decided to address this lacuna."

Ayurvedic medicine -- which means the "science of life" in Sanskrit -- treats the physical and mental sources of illness through, for example, prescribing herbs in conjunction with yoga or massage.

Much of the knowledge has been passed on through the generations by word of mouth and predates written records, but two volumes of remedies and prescriptions have survived, called the Charaka Samhita and the Sushruta Samhita.

'High priority'

Critics say that Ayurvedic remedies have no proven curative properties for disease, and instead work as a placebo.

"It's like superstition -- it's in your head that it helps. But in real life, you need actual pharma drugs," said P.K. Goyal, a Delhi-based physician.

But Modi, who as a young man wandered the Himalayas on a spiritual quest, said Ayurvedic remedies should be seen as complementary to modern medicine.

"If a person adopts Ayurveda, he can protect himself against various infections," said the 64-year-old.

"(Formerly) health was a part of life. But today we have outsourced health... we consult one doctor and then the other."

In India, domestic companies such as Dabur, Emami and the Himalaya group have pioneered herbal products, combining ancient traditional medicine with cutting-edge technology to make pills, creams and oils.

Ayurvedic centres and clinics have also sprung up in Europe and the United States in recent years, and global chain The Body Shop has created its own range of Ayurvedic products.

On Tuesday the new AAYUSH minister, Shripad Yesso Naik, said he would make promoting Ayurveda a "high priority" as he began his newly-created role.

"We will do whatever it takes to make India a healthy India in the days ahead," he said, praising the preventive qualities of yoga and Ayurveda.

According to the World Health Organization, 65 percent of India's rural population uses Ayurvedic remedies, mostly due to poor access to modern health facilities.

Modi has vowed to provide affordable healthcare to India, where nearly 25 percent of the population lives on less than $1.25 a day and more than 40 million people have been pushed into poverty because of the cost of medical treatment.

His Hindu nationalist government, which swept to power in May on a promise to revive India's flagging economy, has already announced plans to establish a state-funded Ayurvedic research centre and hospital.

And many are already converted to the drive. One fan at the conference -- where everything from massage chairs to digestion and blood pressure pills were on display -- needed no further persuading.

"It's natural, so no side effects, and it's cheap," said 20-year-old Delhi student Ashima Beri.

"Honestly, these worked on my acne better than any other cream or drug."

Rosetta probe Philae declared 'stable'

Scientists are awaiting news from the Rosetta comet mission, its Philae module landed on the surface of comet 67P. Early data suggested the probe may have hit a snag, although the situation has been declared stable.

Deutsche Welle, 13 Nov 2014


With communications severed as the "mothership" Rosetta spent a period of its orbit on the far side of the comet from Earth, information was limited about the degree of success of Philae's landing.

Mission chiefs based in the German city of Darmstadt said the European Space Agency (ESA) lander, Philae, failed to anchor to comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, after landing on Wednesday. However, the probe still managed to send back some scientific information and was declared to be in a "stable" situation on Thursday.

The 100-kilogram (22 lb) module appears to have landed on a soft surface, but it is feared that it is not anchored. The harpoons that Philae had been due to fire to secure itself did not deploy successfully.


It is believed that the probe touched down largely as planned, except that it may have bounced once off the surface before coming to rest. "Hopefully, we are sitting there on the surface at a position different to the original landing and can continue our science," landing manager Stefan Ulamec said after Philae's descent.

Rosetta, which carried Philae on a journey of some 6.5 billion kilometers (4 billion miles) was launched into space on 2004 and took over a decade to reach its target - comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko - "Chury" or "67P" for short. It arrived in August, having been propelled to its destination by using the gravitational pull of both the Earth and Mars as a slingshot.

The probe is equipped with 10 instruments that will examine the chemistry and structure of the 67P, drilling into the comet's surface. It is hoped that the information gleaned might provide scientists with a greater understanding of the origins of the solar system.
Comets are thought to be clusters of ice and carbon dust left over from the formation of the solar system.

One theory is that comets may have seeded the Earth with water and the necessary carbon molecules for life to evolve some 4.6 billion years ago.

Controversial book makes new claim about 'married' Jesus

Yahoo – AFP, 12 Nov 2014

London (AFP) - A new book was launched in London on Wednesday claiming to have fresh evidence that Jesus married and had children with Mary Magdalene, but it drew derision from some quarters.

The authors of "The Lost Gospel" make their claims based on a new translation they have made of an ancient manuscript held in the British Library, and two accompanying letters.

The manuscript, "Joseph and Aseneth", elaborates on the story of Joseph as recounted in the Book of Genesis and is thought to date back to the sixth century.

Simcha Jacobovici, an Israeli-Canadian documentary filmmaker, and Canadian academic Barrie Wilson say they found a code in the document and believe it refers to Jesus.

"It presents the courtship, marriage, children and an attempt on his life in coded, symbolic terms," they said in a statement.

"Because the early years of the Church were so rife with conflict, important manuscripts were disguised in this way to protect it from those who sought to alter or destroy it."

Critics have rounded on the new book, which is accompanied by a television documentary.

The Church of England dismissed the claims, and Diarmaid MacCulloch, professor of church history at Oxford University, told AFP they were based on a "mistaken reading" of the text.

"What they've tried to do is say it's an allegory of the life of Jesus. But it isn't," he said.

Wilson, a professor of religious studies at York University in Toronto, dismissed the "off-the-cuff negative comments", saying they were motivated by "theological protectionism".

An ancient piece of papyrus found in 2012 contained a mention of Jesus' wife but did not name her. It too caused a stir, as Christian tradition has long held he was not married.

Question: Dear Kryon, did a person named Jesus actually exist, or was it a group with the Christ energy that the church made into a person?

Question: Dear Kryon, I’ve looked at birth charts for Jesus over many years and found one which I believe, if not real, is the most intriguing. Therefore, I ask: Can you please reveal the exact date and time of Jesus Christ’s birth? And which DNA layer is the "astrology layer" that you’ve mentioned? I really believe that this may help in realigning astrology with the energy you’ve talked about

Question: Dear Kryon, when Jesus came here, did he know of our eternal work of Universe building? Does he know how much we love him?

Question: Dear Kryon, I’m not a Christian, but am curious as to whether the story of Jesus is accurate. Did he die by crucifixion, or was he spared to live a full life with a family of his own, elsewhere?

Question: Dear Kryon, was Jesus nothing more or less than a Crystal Child? Did he possess something that simply wasn’t understood during his time? Did he have different DNA or advanced DNA? This time is so exciting, and things have become so clear, that I want to be able to tell others what I now understand.

Answer: Dear ones, we posture this answer with great respect for those who love this Human master. It serves no purpose to give information that would be detrimental to any study or search for the divine by any Human alive. This is why we often do not give you the actual history of some of the masters who walked this earth. We see the search for the divine as the most important thing a Human can do. Even if the facts of history are incorrect, sometimes the benefits of the search still bring the Human into the light and into the realization that God is inside us all.

Jesus was a real person. His birth and death were far different than have been reported, but he walked the earth as an enlightened soul whose miracles and teachings were the beginning of a new dispensation. He taught unity, and the principle that all men could speak personally to God. He said, "You can be just like me!" and that is what our message is, also . . . that master-hood is within each of you. If you really want to know more about the real history, it’s very clearly in the scrolls, but it’s not in your scriptures!

If you feel that Jesus might have had a special consciousness, as many of the new children do, you’re right! His DNA was without some of the restrictions that you have, but had those that you’re now learning about. The astrological layer of his DNA (the layers that respond to other planetary energy movements) were void and neutral. (This particular layer will be exposed this year for you, along with a name.)

And yes, he knows of your love, and all the things that your divinity knows. Like all of you, he is multidimensional, and is in many places at the same time. Did you know that you are, too?

Spiritual enlightenment is not about following any Human Being or any entity in the Universe. It’s about knowing that God resides within you, and that you’re an eternal part of His universal plan. This information has been brought to you from many masters and is within many cultures throughout the history of the earth.

Jesus, as well as other masters who walked the earth, not only gave you messages of empowerment, but then "walked the walk" so you could see that a Human Being could actually do what he said could be done. Many of you are poised on the edge of realizing this same thing.

Human thoughts used to switch on genes

NewScienstist, Helen Thomson, 11 November 2014

Could a futuristic society of humans with the power to control their own biological functions ever become reality?

It's not as out there as it sounds, now the technical foundations have been laid. Researchers have created a link between thoughts and cells, allowing people to switch on genes in mice using just their thoughts.

"We wanted to be able to use brainwaves to control genes. It's the first time anyone has linked synthetic biology and the mind," says Martin Fussenegger, a bioengineer at ETH Zurich in Basel, Switzerland, who led the team behind the work.

They hope to use the technology to help people who are "locked-in" – that is, fully conscious but unable to move or speak – to do things like self-administer pain medication. It might also be able to help people with epilepsy control their seizures.

In theory, the technology could be used for non-medical purposes, too. For example, we could give ourselves a hormone burst on demand, much like in the Culture – Iain M. Banks's utopian society, where people are able to secrete hormones and other chemicals to change their mood.

Mouse meet man

Fussenegger's team started by inserting a light-responsive gene into human kidney cells in a dish. The gene is activated, or expressed, when exposed to infrared light. The cells were engineered so that when the gene activated, it caused a cascade of chemical reactions leading to the expression of another gene – the one the team wanted to switch on.

Next, they put the cells into an implant about the size of a 10-pence piece or a US quarter, alongside an infrared LED that could be controlled wirelessly. The implant was inserted under the skin of a mouse. A semi-permeable membrane allowed vital nutrients from the animal's blood supply to reach the cells inside.

With the mouse part of the experiment prepared, the team turned to the human volunteers. Eight people, wearing EEG devices that monitored their brainwaves, were taught how to conjure up different mental states that the device could recognise by their distinctive brain waves.

The volunteers were shown meditation techniques to produce a "relaxed" pattern of brainwaves, and played a computer game to produce patterns that reflected deep concentration. They also used a technique known as biofeedback, in which they learned by trial and error to control their thoughts to switch on a set of lights on a computer.

By linking the volunteer's EEG device to the wireless LED implant in the mouse, they were able to switch on the LED using any of the three mental states. This activated the light-responsive gene in the kidney cells, which, in turn, led to the activation of the target gene. A human protein was produced that passed through the implant's membrane and into the rodent's bloodstream, where it could be detected. "We picked a protein that made an enzyme that was easy to identify in the mouse as a proof of concept, but essentially we think we could switch on any target gene we liked," says Fussenegger.

Behaviour controlled

The possibilities this could open up extend as far as your imagination. For example, the implant cells could produce hormones, so how about giving yourself a burst of oxytocin before a stressful social event – just by concentrating on a computer game?

That's possible in principle, Fussenegger says, but for now his team is focused on creating a device to help people who are locked-in, or those with chronic pain, medicate themselves. For people with epilepsy, a similar device could potentially pick up the specific electrical patterns that appear in the brain just before a seizure. It might be possible to engineer cells to react to this pattern and release drugs to lessen the seizure.

While the applications are futuristic, the work itself is very interesting, says Florian Wurm, head of cellular biotechnology at EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland. He says it shows for the first time that you can link together two really important ideas – synthetic biology and mind control.

"But we have to consider the ethical and legal challenges associated with this kind of technology," Wurm says. "The moment you can control genes by thought you might be able to interfere with human behaviour, perhaps against someone's wishes." He doesn't want to paint a negative picture, though. "We shouldn't close our eyes to these inventions. It's not going to be made into a medical device any time soon but it's interesting to consider who it could help."

Fussenegger says he would like to start a clinical trial within 10 years.

"... Mining the Akash - The Role of Innate

What I'm going to tell next, we have given you before. However, I wish to explain it better in this communication. Your innate is also a governor of what you personally need. Let me explain: Turn a page with me. We have talked in the past about mining the Akash. So let us open that door for a moment. Is it possible, dear one, that you could go into the vast storehouse of the attributes of your past lives and pick out something that you need today? The answer is yes. It's called mining the Akash, and it is a staple of the Kryon teaching. However, the way it's accomplished by the individual Human is really difficult to describe. It's a personal intuitive process. However, one attribute of it that is often misunderstood is that permission from the innate is needed. This is because the innate smart body knows what you need. It is then the governor, or the filter, giving you permission regarding what can be pulled out of your Akash and used. It will say no to frivolous things and yes to the things that will allow you to cure yourself of disease, live longer, and increase the efficiency of your DNA. It's a smart body regulator.

Innate doesn't care how you look. It cares about your health. If you want to go into your Akash and pull out something that you need for survival, it's right there with you. If you want to make clearer skin, it won't respond. Do you see what I mean? It's the governor for mining the Akash. By the way, the Akash is very ready to be used for this. [Kryon wink]

You have earned what you've lived, dear ones, and it's very available. It lies in a quantum soup of lifetime information that is ready to be used. If you have a disease in your body right now, and perhaps you want to mine the Akash in a way that will create healing, you can. Like all nonlinear things, it requires a new, mature consciousness and practice to work. But the body is ready for you to "go get" the cellular structure of a past life that had no disease. The blueprint for this resides within you since you earned it and lived it. The innate is responsible for spontaneous remission! Science has no idea how a Human does this. The innate can help you "go get" the things within your earned Akash and place them into your cellular structure. That's how smart it is! Imagine clearing disease so completely that there is no sign it was ever there? It happens all the time. Imagine being able to drop a chemical dependency overnight? It's exactly the same principle.

Did you ever sit in a meeting and something is said or a feeling can happen, and you get chills? What are they? You might say, "They are chills of validation." Guess where they came from? The innate! The innate has the ability to signal you the truth. The brain does not. In fact, your brain will often get in the way. It's the brain that contains your box of belief. It's the brain that contains the perception of who you are based on experience and memory. It's your 3D survival instrument. But the brain can't give truth. It can only give you what it perceives as the truth, based on logical, processed, computed, synaptic reasoning and only based on your past experience.

Your brain can tell you not to touch the stove because of what happened once before. But it can't give you chills of validation from information it does not have. The intellect wants you to believe that your brain is supreme. However, the brain is only one part of the body system and not a very intuitive part. It is the innate that knows the truth. The innate is connected to the quantum parts of your DNA and, therefore, also knows of your spirituality and the truth of God inside.

The Next Step

One of the attributes of the future Human Being is to build a bridge between your Human consciousness and your innate. This is one of the three things in the cellular parts of the nine attributes lesson, the Human energies part. This needs to be a bridge of new tools so you no longer have to muscle-test. In fact, you can become your own medical intuitive. Doesn't this make sense? So, when a virus or bacteria invades your body - something your brain can't warn you about - you will know it anyway! This bridge will begin to complete the Human Being's evolution and is a logical next step for longer life. I know this makes sense to you. You should be able to sense these things when they occur rather than going to a doctor for tests. Going to a doctor for tests is not a bad thing, but it should validate what you know is happening and not be the discovery of it. ..."

Mormon founder Joseph Smith had as many as 40 wives

Yahoo – AFP, 12 Nov 2014

Washington (AFP) - The founder of Mormonism, which for decades allowed polygamy, had as many as 40 wives including one who was only 14, the US-based church has acknowledged.

Joseph Smith (1805-1844), founded the Church of the Latter-day Saints, Mormonism's formal name, and is regarded by followers as a prophet.

The Mormon church said in an online essay last month that Smith is estimated to have had between 30 and 40 wives, some of whom were already married.

The New York Times, which first reported the disclosure Tuesday, said Smith probably did not have sex with all the wives because some were "sealed" to him only for the next life.

The Mormon essay said the oldest of the women "sealed" to Smith was 56, and the youngest was 14.

"Marriage at such an age, inappropriate by today's standards, was legal in that era, and some women married in their mid-teens," the Mormon essay states.

According to the essay, "an angel appeared to (Smith) three times between 1834 and 1842 and commanded him to proceed with plural marriage when he hesitated to move forward."

During the third visit, the angel supposedly threatened to kill Smith with a sword unless Smith obeyed the commandment.

The Times said Smith has long been portrayed by the church as a loyal partner to his first wife, Emma.

An official Mormon website says that today, "the practice of polygamy is strictly prohibited ... as it has been for over a century."

But polygamy was part of the church's teachings for 50 years during the religion's early days.

"Much of what you'll find in the essays on polygamy has been published in diverse sources and known among long-term and well-read members, historians and Church leaders for many years," Mormon spokesman Eric Hawkins told AFP.

"The Church has now gathered this information into a single location as a convenient means of placing these resources in the hands of all members."

The Mormon church has written several essays in recent months addressing contentious topics, including a ban on black people from becoming priests that was only lifted in 1978.

The Mormon church claims 15 million members worldwide, including six million in the United States.

The faith is also known internationally for its practice of sending young missionaries around the world.

In 1820, a 14-year-old Smith claimed he'd had a vision of God, while living in western New York state. The event went on to be seen as a founding moment in the history of Mormonism.

Facing persecution, Mormons moving westward eventually sought refuge in what is now Utah, making Salt Lake City their "capital." Followers of the faith are to this day concentrated in this western part of the United States.

Smith was killed by an angry crowd while in prison.
