10895849488?profile=originalNestled into lush surroundings in Prescott's Granite Dells, the home of Happy Oasis and her Beloved, John Light, is a treasure, a sanctuary for life of all kinds.  They call it Heaven on Earth.

Just eighteen months ago, the sanctuary that Happy spent nearly twenty-five years cultivating and nurturing, met tragedy. In March 2014, when John and Happy were wintering in their RV in Mexico's Baja California del Sur, the people renting their home subleased it to a group of young women, one of whom accidentally burnt the house down with the toss of a cigarette.

"We are non-smokers," Happy said, "but one cigarette changed our lives. We were shocked. Together, we lost about a cup of tears."

Almost a quarter of a century ago, Happy first fell in love with the Granite Dells just after moving to Prescott. She soon bought her home, then became an advocate for protecting the Dells, and was the force behind Prescott's decision to procure the track of neighboring wild land that is now home to the Granite Gardens Trails network.

When their home was destroyed in 2014, Happy and John weren't sure whether to sell the property or rebuild.

"For about a week, we were in constant prayer wondering what to do," Happy said. "Then I heard my inner spirit say, 'You cannot sell this land. You need to stay here and rebuild to protect this sacred land all around you.'"

10895850065?profile=originalShe listened, and in order to protect the trees and vegetation, Happy and John tore down the remains of their home by hand, then hauled away thirty-nine tons of ashen remains. Happy called the process "extremely labor intensive."

John gave Happy free reign to design her dream home, and his contractor's skills—which he hadn't used in years—quickly resurfaced. The demolition, removal, design, permitting and building of their new home, Heaven on Earth, took nearly eighteen months.

This resulted is what Happy and John call "a co-created paradise." They consider it "a sanctuary for not only wildlife, but also for cultivating a beautiful wild life inside the soul - to live in ever greater harmony with our highest self, with each other, and with nature.”

It was the couple's architectural goal to bring the outdoors in, to create a joyous ambiance for indoor living rich with plants, including the fruit and nut trees Happy has nurtured for twenty-five years. Happy wished to encompass splendid views of nature's grandeur by highlighting flowers, shrubs and herbs amidst the cliffs.  To achieve this end, Heaven on Earth features as many windows as the structural engineer would allow.

Each window creates an artistic frame for a captivating natural scene, such as granite boulders surrounding the flagstone-rimmed pool, towering canyon walls lush with vegetation above the lawn and its shady fruit trees (apples, figs, plums and peaches to name a few) and an antique European stone fountain amidst the granite cliffs.

10895850084?profile=originalBecause Heaven on Earth is tucked away inside a protected canyon aside a pond in the middle of the Granite Dells, its microclimate delivers moister, milder seasons than the rest of Prescott with verdant scenery year-round.

"We prefer to let the landscape grow somewhat wild to create a jungle-like effect," Happy said. "Guests often say that it looks and feels as if they have been magically transported to Maui, Kauai or Thailand."

In addition to the natural landscape, Happy and John have planted gardens attractive to butterflies, birds and wildlife. Porcupines, raccoons, ring-tailed cats, foxes, bobcats, javelina, coyotes and mountain lions have all made appearances at Heaven on Earth.

"Rare" Arizona tree frogs are regular visitors, too, convening to "sing the evening away in the pond and occasionally even dip into our swimming pool," Happy said with a grin. The pool is extremely low chlorine, so it's safe for critters who need a drink.

10895849895?profile=originalA variety of birds are residents or occasional visitors, too, such as Great Horned Owls, Mourning Doves, Quail, Roadrunners, Green Herons, Great Blue Herons, Kingfishers, Poor Wills, Mallard Ducks, Wood Ducks, Canyon Wrens, Wood Peckers, Hummingbirds, Nuthatches, House Finches, Ravens, Scrub Jays and Red Tail Hawks.

The home's exterior features local pastel flagstone in tones of red, pink, and peach.  Happy hand-selected it from a quarry a few miles north of Paulden. “Flagstone seemed to be the most ecological choice,” said Happy, “not only because it is local, natural, and non-toxic, but also because it blends in perfectly with the environment of the Granite Dells and perhaps most importantly, it will endure for centuries to come.”

The 3400 square-foot home’s subtle lemon and light peach walls create a soft, soothing glow all day long. Swirled natural marble and rustic hardwood floors throughout the home provide a calming backdrop for the cherry cabinets, knotty-pine doors, and granite and marble countertops.

10895850463?profile=originalVisitors are greeted by French doors at the base of a tall cathedral wall of picture windows. Visitors then walk into a generous great room with high ceilings and an open floor plan. The kitchen features many windows plus a large, cashew-shaped, marble-top, peninsula dining area that sits to one side, with another dining table by a spacious window that overlooks the pool, seasonal pond, patios and decks. The living area sits opposite to the kitchen and dining spaces.

A master suite and a guest suite (which has its own kitchen) extend from the interior of the great room, and the downstairs features yet another spacious guest suite.

The bed in the master suite faces windows that overlook a vertical column of granite boulders down which waterfalls flow after it rains. The room is laid out so that the  flickering flames of the wood-burning stove can be seen from the bed, the desk and the corner bath tub.

The tub, a deep oversized haven of its own, has a story behind it: As an adventure anthropologist and ardent explorer, Happy said she lived in India for more than a year when she visited many ruins of Queens' Baths. She decided to incorporate one into a particularly viewy corner of the master suite.

Happy carefully selected brass faucets and crystal knobs to place throughout the home because, she said, “Gold and crystal elevate the spirit which is why these materials are featured in cathedrals and other holy places.”

"Heaven on Earth also features arched entrances and arched alcoves for statues and flowers," Happy said. “To heighten a sense of cozy serenity, we built many meditation nooks, private patios and hidden decks throughout the premises.”

The home features an abundance of skylights and sky tubes to enhance the natural light, thereby reducing the need for artificial lighting.

Despite the arduous challenge of losing one home and rebuilding another—and living in an RV with an outhouse for fifteen months—John and Happy are more in love than ever.

Though they are creative hermits by nature, they are also community people. They occasionally host educational and inspirational gatherings, to which they invite neighbors and friends.

In addition, Happy now leads international visitors along spectacular hiking and bicycling trails that lead through the surrounding canyon forest to nearby streams, peaks and lakes.

"It's a wonderful way to earn a living," she said. "For many years, I've been inwardly cultivating a dream of being 'The Granite Dells Guide.'"

This summer, they enjoyed sharing Heaven on Earth with visitors from around the world including: Bali, Haiti, Iceland, Denmark, Canada, France, Australia, Maui, California, Colorado, the Midwest, New York, Australia, Jamaica and England.

At the same time, the couple prefers to live simply, quietly and close to nature. "This area should have been a national park," Happy said. "Since we live here, we feel it is our joyous duty to protect the other species with whom we share this special land."

"We designed our home and gardens as a reminder to us all that living in heaven on earth is possible. It is a conscious choice that requires effort. Our home also serves as an inspiration to us as poets, authors, musicians, artists, naturalists and athletes," Happy said.

As Happy and John return to their nomadic lifestyle, they wish to share Heaven on Earth with a selective long-term guest or two. They envision hosting guests who treasure beauty and serenity, those who are seeking a creative haven, a spiritual sanctum, a health enhancing residence or a restful retreat.”

Happy said, "It's a quiet place to dream, to ponder about what is possible."

This comprehensive book, goes far beyond the immediate impact of the “pandemic”, but, along with the reader, imagines how our human world may be altered, both positively and negatively, long into an uncertain future.

Clearly, the economic, political and social impact is more long-lasting and harmful to human life than a seasonal infectious disease such as a generic “coronavirus”, which generally fades in the summer and rises in the winter months. However, the overarching tyranny and authoritarian control systems being imposed are far more devastating in both the short and long-term effects than this virus.

This pandemic has revealed the psychological makeup of our modern society,  how fearful, apathetic and obedient many of us have become, how spoiled for comfort and convenience, how quickly some of us blame others for our problems and refuse to take responsibility, and how thoroughly we can avoid, resist and ignore the truth.

Yet others are seeing the light at the end of this tunnel, the opportunity which may present ourselves to create a better world, not a dystopian nightmare. 

After being bombarded with contradictory and confusing health advice by numerous public health “experts” and our “friends” on social media, how can any of us remain in denial about the profound and life-changing implications of the rapid changes being foisted upon us. If we take off the blindfolds, we might very likely see a pre-planned and well-orchestrated pandemic, a “plandemic"? 

Let’s remove the blindfolds and masks, take notice what’s actually happening around us. It's to our benefit to do so.

Let’s take a good look at what we have learned so far and see how we can still “live free in an unfree world”.

Together, let’s imagine a “Dawning of the Corona Age!”

By Happy Oasis

At the sold-out Sacramento Bliss Conscious Communication Playshop recently, a budding Blissologist told our group that beggars really bother her, said she cannot relate to them, and asked, "What can we do about this"?

Few will deny that beggars are abounding. In fact, beggary may be the fastest growing profession in the USA today. How can beggars positively contribute to the emerging ecstatic economy? Read on to discover how.

Having abided in third world countries for nearly a decade, I grew accustomed to the omnipresence of beggars. In India, I observed myriad anomalies, yet generally three kinds of beggars, namely 1. spiritual sadhus, 2. deformed performers, and 3. those who are down and out temporarily or permanently such as single mothers with young children, the mentally ill, and the elderly.

Important Observation: within two generations the majority of this new, rising phenomenon of widespread American beggars have the option to ascend into the first type of mystic beggars who bless, amuse and offer inspiration to passerby's or to descend into the abysmal practice of cutting off limbs of their children or otherwise graphically mutilating their family members, including themselves, for the purpose of evoking monetary pittances from unsuspecting, compassionate passerbyers.

"I am A Beggar Too" song by Happy Oasis (mp3)

I have seen this first hand in many third world nations. Now that you know this great potential for tragedy or sagacity, it is ALL OF OUR response-abiilty to inspire and train the up-and-coming growing class of beggars. This includes YOU by response-ably educating beggars or begging response-ably yourself wherever you go in every conversation in which beggars come up. Instead of apathetically, fearfully, disgustedly or annoyingly passing by a beggar, it is our joyous duty to inspire beggars to inspire others.

For example, I told a young, strong-looking 20-something years young beggar that if he could say something inspiring ~  anything at all ~ I would give him a dollar.He said he could not think of anything positive to say. I told him I would come back with the dollar the next day. Upon seeing him in the morning, he beamed. "Good Morning, Happy! Isn't it a beautiful day?"  A dollar was dropped in his bowl. He beamed.

We all know professional women (and men) who would donate an offering to a beggar to compliment and/or inspire them as they enter their office building in the morning. How many people could benefit from hearing a compliment when walking down the sidewalk? Why stop at compliments? What about jokes? Poems? Prayers? Blessings? Philosophical Inspirations?

Moreover, the most stirring lines of classical and spiritual literature can be joyfully shouted out to someone walking by.

With persistent uplifting encouragement and suggestions from everyone of us,
America's beggars can be esteemed, valuable members of society as some of the greatest poets, mystics, comedians, friends and sages of this century, just as many beggars are in India today, a spiritual tradition that has endured there for millenia.

Think of the influence beggars could make by uttering a profound phrase from Thoreau or Hafiz or Swami Beyondananda before someone enters a courthouse. The simple act of instilling a slice of wisdom or joy into a judge, lawyer, prosecutor or defendant entering the court house could make an impact in legal decisions and consequently, lives.

Revealing it is that the root of the verb "beg" orginated from the Latin "bede" and means "to pray". The word bead also comes from "bede". What is the correlation of begging, praying and beads? They were considere the same activity. Today in India, millennium or two later, beggars are still the ones who pray for everyone in their midst while wearing and rubbing beads while begging. Today is an opportune day for us to re-ignite the tradition of such holy men and women in America.

Beggars are often the ones with the most time on their hands with their ears to the ground. Why not train them to lovingly let the rest of us know what's happening in the world? "Be sure to wear your coat tomorrow, Sir. The forecast is snow."

Have you considered giving a literate book-loving beggar one of your favorite books to read aloud to you or others next time you walk by? Most beggars are in need of friends, family and income-earning ideas. We can let them know that by reciting inspirational or humorous lines that their pay will likely increase. In addition, they will benefit the world, make new friends, inspire old 'customers', elicit smiles, catalyze conversations and giggles, and meanwhile feel happier about themselves as valuable contributors to society.

We need not beg to be able to bless and bliss everyone we meet. Sharing little kindnesses is the basis of the emerging ecstatic economy. How we speak to each other will soon become more important than almost any other aspect of living.

Why are the poor of Africa and Asia considered to be among the happiest people on the planet? Because, despite circumstances, they cannot afford anything but to live in a continuous state of joyful, love, humor and kindness. I have lived among the "poorest" and the happiest. They treat each other as if they are in the presence of royalty, because they are. We are. Every one of us.

Realizing all this, Blissology University, Bliss U is in its founding state. One branch of it will soon offer a free course regarding "How To Be A Beautiful Beggar", including, most importantly, how the rest of us inspire beggars.

What does beggary have to do with the Raw Spirit Community News? This is the Community News after all. At our most recent Bliss Shop, a dynamic conversation broke out about beggars. Some said they never give to beggars. Some said they always give, which is wonderful, if it is possible.

I pointed out that in India before approaching a prominent temple, there can be a line of 1000 beggars. One could spend all day every day just giving to beggars, and then join them (!), due to consequently being completely penniless oneself. The massive numbers of beggars in India teaches us to be intuitive. Who really really needs these rupees the most? Not from egoic judgement, and outside appearances, but coming from an deep place of spiritual insight. This inspires us to spontaneously connect with source.

In this way, the presence of beggars can teach us to be present, to go within, to get in touch with our mystical wisdom so that we can respond originally in each moment rather than reacting or following a prescribed system of "always giving to beggars" or "never giving" or "once a week" or "only organic gmo-free apples or avocados with leaves of kale".  Any habit is a kind of opt out for having to think afresh.

With beggars, being conscious or unconscious can make a huge difference in someone's life. It is also important to refrain from always giving a habitual amount. "I always give a dollar" or "my spare change" or "organic gmo-free kale leaves and an avocado". There could be one beggar among many in extra real need. A quarter does not buy anything these days, and one is hard pressed to eat much with a dollar. It is not an equal world; however, regardless of appearances, we can be open to co-creating moments of mysterious, kindness, compassion, connection, beauty and joy. The subject of beggars, if handled well, can serve to uplift our spirits and inspire smiles upon the faces of America. This way we can all be "smile millionaires", bliss billionaires, and life-style godzillionaires.

Let us bliss forth and inspire our brother and sister beggars with blissful begging tips and healthy organic gmo-free offerings, not only today, but for the rest of our lives.

We are starting to teach how easy it is to live a raw-billionaire, godzillionaire, blisstrillionaire lifestyle.

Meanwhile, Maui's ocean was crashing, sub-tropical birds chattering in chorus with weed whippers singing during this acoustically-challenged, nonetheless raw-awe-inspiring phone interview with the illustrious Dr. Gabriel Cousens who was at the Tree of Life in Arizona at the time.

Dr. Gabriel Cousens is the author of seven internationally acclaimed books including Spiritual Nutrition.  He is known worldwide as a spiritual teacher and the leading expert in live, plant-source nutrition. The New York Times calls him, "the fasting guru and detoxification expert".  His multi-cultural background as an ordained rabbi, an prominent yogi, and a four-year Native American Sundancer, adds insight to his “whole-person enlightenment” teachings.

As founder and director of the Tree of Life Foundation in Arizona and the Tree of Life Center US, Gabriel has taught extensively in twenty countries and has initiated humanitarian projects in Mexico, Ghana, Nigeria, and Ethiopia. In his latest book, There Is A Cure For Diabetes, Dr. Cousens presents his rejuvenation center’s program for successfully reversing diabetes naturally in 21 days. www.DrCousens.com.

I would to tell you that these beau­ti­ful harps are now receiv­ing the bless­ings of the vor­texes of Sedona .  They are being blessed by all these amaz­ing ener­gies that affect Sedona.  In fact, Archangel Michael and the blue ray energy is so strong here I feel so blessed to be here.

The lady reported to the healer that she and her fam­ily were in a van .  The harp was in her lap and a pink harp brochure with my pic­ture on the front of it was on the dash of the car.  They had just stopped for a light and began enter­ing an inter­sec­tion.  All of a sud­den, the brochure floated out of the car in slow motion as a truck began to enter from the side street when it should have been stopped.  The brochure con­tin­ued to sail thru the inter­sec­tion in slow motion as they noticed the truck com­ing toward them.  All of a sud­den they were just on the other side of the inter­sec­tion safe and unhurt as if time had just changed and the truck had made it thru and so did they, with no one hurt.  The lady seemed to loved to speak of the way the pink brochure just seem to shim­mer and float.   Maybe the angels use the brochure to dis­tract the people’s atten­tion.  Per­haps, so the angels could do their work.  The lady shared this story with sev­eral peo­ple and the story is con­sis­tently the same.  The Mirac­u­lous is the order of the day!

The Angels have blessed these harps from the moment they came into my med­i­ta­tions many years ago.  Whether it be the beau­ti­ful Indian Tun­ing that this amaz­ing lady had or The Angelic tun­ing with the Drag­on­fly or The new Sedona harp is called the Celes­tial . The vor­texes of Sedona has just increased the energy of these harps.  They are so filled with bless­ings from the Angels and par­tic­u­larly, the blue ray of Archangel Michael  already that I will not be Amazed at what sto­ries I hear next !  Mir­a­cles are our gift as we look beyond this world to that which is really real.

Maybe Next We will talk about some of the peo­ple who came up to me  at shows and what they told me about their near death expe­ri­ences and the harps.  Or maybe the repeated reports of  who sang when I left the Booth at shows.  Did you want to hear more about the new Sedona harps and the vor­texes?  Leave your com­ments if you will.

Thank you for being the heart's harvest of this bountiful season! An interview yesterday afternoon with Gangaji in the garden of her simple, elegant, antique home office in Ashland, Oregon reminds us that we are the treasure and the trove. With a subtle shift of perspective, we are free in each moment to give up futile pleasures to enter the inner palace of ceaseless bliss.

Loved by millions, renowned spiritual teacher Gangaji is "one ofAmerica's most pragmatic, homeostatic ecstatics" (according to me) in that she not only loves to effortlesslly meditate moment-to-moment, enjoying almost every aspect of creation; she also loves to run, to laugh, and to nourish her body temple with a raw vegan-friendly diet. Results?

Approaching 70, Gangaji is virtually wrinkle-free and glowing with youth. Gangaji offers a fresh message of sanity and serenity via yesterday's intimate acoustic garden interview. Gangaji just released her new book "Hidden Treasure: Uncovering the Truth in Your Life Story." www. Gangaji.org

By Don Miguel Ruiz Jr 

I began my apprenticeship into my family’s tradition in San Diego, California, when I was fourteen years old. My 79-year-old grandmother, Madre Sarita, was my teacher and the spiritual head of our family. She was a curandera, a faith healer who helped people in her small temple in Barrio Logan, a neighborhood in San Diego, with the power of her faith in God and love. Since my father was a medical doctor, the juxtaposition of the two forms of healing allowed me to see our tradition through different points of view.

Though she spoke no English, my grandmother gave sermons and lectures across the country. My apprenticeship began with translating my grandmother’s lectures from Spanish to English. For many years, I awkwardly stumbled over her words, and my grandmother would just look at me and laugh.

One day, she asked me if I knew why I stumbled. I had all sorts of answers: you are speaking too quickly, you don’t give me a chance to catch up, some words don’t have a direct translation ... She just looked at me silently for a few moments and then asked, “Are you using knowledge, or is knowledge using you?”

I looked at her blankly. She continued, “When you translate, you try to express my words through what you already know, what you think is true. You do not hear me; you hear yourself. Imagine doing the same thing every single moment in life. If you are looking through life and translating it as it goes along, you will miss out on living it. But if you learn to listen to life, you will always be able to express the words as they come. Your knowledge has to become a tool that you will use to guide you through life but that can also be put aside. Do not let knowledge translate everything you experience.”

I nodded in response, but it didn’t dawn on me until many years later what my grandmother was truly talking about. Throughout life, we constantly narrate, or commentate on, everything we do, say, see, touch, smell, taste, and hear. Asnatural storytellers, we continuously keep the plot moving forward, sometimes missing millions of subplots that are developing on their own. It is like taking a sip of wine and saying, “It’s a bit dry; it has definitely aged well, but I can taste the bark. I’ve had better.” Instead of simply experiencing the joy and flavors of the wine, we are analyzing the flavor, trying to break it down and fit it into a context and language we already know. In doing this, we miss out on much of the actual experience.

This is a simple example of how we narrate life — explaining it, but, more importantly, justifying and judging it. Instead of taking an experience for what it is, we create a story to make it fit our beliefs. During Madre Sarita’s talks, I had to completely shut down my thoughts, because if my mind’s commentary got in the way, I would miss out on her message. With this simple process, my grandmother showed me that if we only see the world through the filters of our preconceptions, we are going to miss out on actually living. After much practice, I eventually learned to close my eyes, shut out the world that existed outside my head, and translate every single word she said accurately.

Seeing beyond our filters — our accumulated knowledge and beliefs — does not always come naturally. We have spent years growing attached to them in various degrees, and they feel safe. Whatever we become attached to can begin to shape our future experiences and limit our perception of what exists outside our vocabulary. Like blinders on a horse, our attached beliefs limit our vision, and this in turn limits our perceived direction in life. The stronger our level of attachment, the less we can see.

Think about your set of attached beliefs as a unique melody repeating itself in your mind. In a way, we are constantly trying to force our melody — the one we have become accustomed to hearing — onto other melodies, without realizing that often the melody is not our own, and perhaps it’s not even the one we want to be playing. If we continue playing only what we know, never opening ourselves to listen to the other songs flowing around us, we are letting our attachment to our particular melody control us. Instead, choose to listen to other melodies playing. Perhaps you will contribute to them, adding a harmony or a bass line and just seeing where the music takes you.

By letting go of your attachment to what you think the melody should be, you open yourself to the potential to create a unique and beautiful song of your own composition or a collaboration that can be shared with others.

Regarding the outcome of Proposition 37, Congratulations! How can I be offering "Congratulations" when it appears that Americans have not yet gained our right to know what we are eating? We got it on the ballot, did we not?! Moreover, we won the attention of the nation, which is huge. It is time for us to celebrate and rest for a moment to consider the big picture, to regroup and unite with more confidence than ever. Why was the opposition so great? Because we are a powerful force!

We Give Thanks to All who voted to protect our health or promoted voting for GMO labeling in CA, and especially to the many hard-working noble friends in California who put forth tireless effort to protect all of us from the pervasion of Frankensteinian GMOs. 

The outcome of the election was not surprising to me. It is educational in that it more clearly reveals to those who did not comprehend how entrenched and pervasive are the reaches of this insidious force. To be effectual we need to clearly understand the extent of the strengths and weaknesses of the opposition. Californians have put forth a magnificent effort. We deeply acknowledge that effort. Honestly, are Californians opposed to knowing what they are eating? You know the answer.  Was there voter fraud, advertising fraud, ignorance, cohersion, threats, dirty deal-making or a combination of these? I think you know the answer.

This experiment will go down in history ~ if there is a history.  Let us remember that slavery was not overturned without many fights. Women were not given the right to vote overnight. Gandhi's efforts took lives and time. For millenia, countless people have been jailed, imprisoned, robbed, tortured and killed for standing up for what is right. The imprisoned Mandela was freed, then voted into Presidency.

By all of us choosing to step up our combined efforts from this moment, GMOS will be labeled, then outright banned. Like some of you, who have shared with me, I too have been secretly subjected to death threats, character defamation, computer system failures, embezzlements and more due to standing up for what is true by those who do not wish for the power of eating an organic gmo-free raw vegan diet to be understood. This started happening back in 2008, Raw Spirit was about to start lobbying against GMOs in D.C. Meanwhile, I continue enjoying life to its fullest, remembering that the power of Love is the only real power and that Love eventually overcomes.

The Next Steps: This is a federal issue, (actually planetary) and requires lobbying against the most powerful force in Washington. Thank goodness for Californians who started the conversation. At the same time, what can we do? What about starting with banning GMOs from our own bodies, labeling ourselves, our cars, our homes, our streets, and our health-food stores as GMO-free? Remember bumper stickers? To do this requires educating ourselves and finding alternatives to any GMO-containing foods. Once this is achieved, we can label our villages and towns. We can ban GMOs from entering our neighborhoods and put up signs. History has shown that with any major issue, it takes time. We the people need to educate, think and approach this from myriad angles including those more grass roots than we have yet attempted. Are you willing to label yourself with a button saying,  "I'm GMO-free. Are You?" Plus, I trust that you will conjure up your own brilliant approaches.

In 2006, for the first time in the world, a lawsuit against Coca-Cola was initiated in Turkey over the composition of the drink. The label usually states that Coca-Cola contains sugar, phosphoric acid, caffeine, caramel, carbon dioxide, and a little "extract."
 
 
This fragment only created suspicion. Coca-Cola's concern was forced to reveal the secret of what they actually make coke out of. It was fluid from the cochineal insect. Grasshopper is an insect that lives in the Canary Islands and Mexico. The insect sucks itself into the plant, drinks its juice from it, and never moves from its place. A special field is being prepared from this insect. The villagers collect insects.
 
The females and eggs of these insects produce a pigment called carmine, which turns coca-cola brown. Dried clippers look like raisins but are actually insects! Now we know what the word "coke: means in a drink. What's behind "Cola" to do this you need to tell the story of an employee who worked in the Coca-Cola factory for 23 years.
 
The raw material for cola is sweet carrots, many animals are fed with these roots. mammals, including mice. Big coke companies harvest these roots in tons with excavators. When you harvest many tons, pulling out the mice is impossible. Therefore, the roots are crushed along with what was between the roots. After this only remains wool legs etc, are removed from such a mass!
 
Because the drink has a darker shade, it is not noticeable that it contains blood and juice from the mouse's stomach. Of course, the giant Cola companies try to neutralize the harmful substances with chemicals. For 23 years, the employee who told the story never had a glass of coke.
 
Researchers in Washington have broken down the ingredients that makeup one of Coca-Cola's ingredients. Caramel turned out not to be melted sugar, but a chemical mixture of sugar, ammonia, and sulfur received at high pressure and temperature. It can cause lung, liver, thyroid cancer, and leukemia. It turned out to be a ghost in the gas: this is the basis of this top secret supplement "7x."
 
A few drops of aromatic oils, coriander, and cinnamon are added to the alcohol. And beats the insect leakage, thanks to carmine, it did not pass certification at all, which is why coke is not produced in any Country.
 
The body reacts to cocaine (even though most of it was taken out years ago):
 
After 10 min. 10 teaspoons of sugar will "beat" our system, after 20 min. there will be a spike of insulin in the blood. The liver turns all sugar into fat. After 40 min. caffeine intake is off and the mucous membrane expands. Blood pressure rises because the liver releases more sugar into the blood. Adenosine receptors are blocked, preventing drowsiness. After 45 min. your body increases the production of dopamine, which stimulates the pleasure center in the brain.
 
The same goes for heroin. 1 hour later phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium, and zinc in the intestines and increases metabolism and increases calcium excretion through urine. In 1.5 hrs. the urinary tract is involved. Calcium, magnesium, and zinc in bones are excreted, as are sodium, electrolytes and water. In 2 hrs. the body becomes sensitive or apathetic. All Coca-Cola is excreted through urine.
 
Coca-Cola under the microscope: The active ingredient in Coca-Cola is orthophosic acid. Its pH is 2.8, To transport Coca-Cola concentrate, the truck must be equipped with special containers designed for corrosive solid material.
 
Within 1 day or so a small nail will dissolve in a glass of Coca-Cola. Imagine what it does in your stomach and kidneys.
 
Detailed composition of the advertised decaffeinated Coca-Cola Light product: Aqua-carbonate, E150d, E952, E950, E951, E338 and E330.
 
Be aware of what they do to Humanity for many decades!

10895848654?profile=originalStudio Live presents Folk Legend David Wilcox on Friday, November 30th at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 for general admission, doors open at 7 p.m.

Cleveland-born David Wilcox was inspired to play guitar after hearing a fellow college student playing in a stairwell. His lyrical insight is matched by a smooth baritone voice, virtuosic guitar chops, and creative open tunings, giving him a range and tenderness rare in folk music.

He released an independent albumin 1987, was a winner of the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk award in 1988, and by 1989 he had signed with A&M Records. His first release on the label, 'How Did You Find Me Here,' sold over 100,000 copies the first year largely by word of mouth. Now, 17 albums into a career marked by personal revelation and wildly loyal fans, David continues to find and deliver joy, inspiration, and invention.

Considered a 'songwriter's songwriter', his songs have been covered by artists such as k.d. lang and many others.

In addition to his writing prowess, his skills as a performer and storyteller are unmatched. He holds audiences rapt with nothing more than a single guitar, thoroughly written songs, a fearless ability to mine the depths of human emotions of joy, sorrow and everything in between, and all tempered by a quick and wry wit.

Reflecting on well over 20 years of record-making and touring extensively around the United States and world, Wilcox says, "Music still stretches out before me like the head-lights of a car into the night. It's way beyond where I am, but it shows where I'm going. I used to think that my goal was to catch up, but now I'm grateful that the music is always going to be way out in front to inspire me."

For more information please contact the Sedona Performing Arts Alliance/Studio Live at (928) 282-0549. Tickets are available online at www.studiolivesedona.com or at the Studio Live box office located at 215 Coffeepot Drive in West Sedona.

The below is absolutely 100% true and as a doctor I have been telling people this for 15 years now. No one wants to listen. Folks need to wake up. Cancer treatment is about making money. It is a 120 billion dollar a year industry in the United States alone and estimated to be a 600 billion dollar a year industry worldwide.

A successful cancer case according to the American Cancer Society and the American College of Oncology and Hematology means that the person survives for 5 years. Both the American Cancer Society and the American College of Oncology and Hematology admit that a person is likely to survive cancer for 7 to 10 years even if they do absolutely NOTHING. Of course, only the doctors get those magazines - not you, the cancer patient.

Alternative medicine's track record of curing cancer is 10 times higher than that of conventional medicine. Note that I say CURE.

Remember another thing. A TUMOR is just a symptom. It is not the cause of cancer.

Science is cause and effect. Remove the cause and the effect disappears.

I am in my third battle with cancer right now. I have not done any chemotherapy or radiation or surgery for any of my bouts with cancer. I survived leukemia, I survived Non Hodgkins Lymphoma and now I have Glioblastoma which is supposedly an incurable form of brain cancer. I was given two months to live 5 months ago.

I have been using Chinese herbs, high doses of vitamin C, acupuncture, chiropractic, homeopathy and nutritional changes. Yes, at first it got worse. It had metastasized to my lymph nodes, my lungs and my bones. As of this week, I am happy to say that there is no evidence now of any cancer in my lymph system or my bones. I had 6 tumors in my lungs, now there are only two. The tumors in my brain have shrunken tremendously. I never did any of their chemo, radiation or surgery.

Here is a very interesting statistic that you can only have access to by being a doctor. Every year more than 1,000 doctors oncologists (cancer doctors) are diagnosed with cancer. Less than 10% of them choose to do the treatment that they have been giving to their patients. Sort of like the fact that less than 25% of all pediatricians vaccinate their own children because of the fact that the risk of sudden death or serious side effects from the vaccination is higher than the risk of catching the disease one is being vaccinated for. This is not bullshit people - it is truth.

Medicine is about money, not about your health and the system traps people, especially the elderly, disabled and poor into a deadly treatment regime that puts them in an early grave. Meanwhile, all the jet set billionaires are flying off to Europe and paying big bucks for alternative treatments and getting cured.

Does alternative medicine work all the time? No. Of course not. Nothing works all the time. But there is a reason for that. You don't die until it's your time to die. Nothing can make you live longer than that time.

However quality of life comes into play. Those cancer patients who use alternative therapies for their cancer, yet still die from the illness, suffer a much higher quality of life. They die able to spend time with their families and even recognize their family members. They don't become emaciated like those who do chemotherapy or radiation do and rarely is a person who goes under the treatment of chemotherapy able to recognize anyone for the last few days of their lives. Their bodies become ravaged to the point that you can't even recognize them either. They suffer at a much much higher rate and they have one let down after another as doctors tell them, ahhh - it's looking good, only to tell them on the next visit it's looking worse, you need more chemo and radiation.

What is criminal about this is that YOUR DOCTORS KNOW THIS SHIT.

I took an oath as a physician. I have always followed it. That has certainly not made me successful financially as a doctor because I have consistently refused to go along with conventional medicine's bullshit.

- Rick Cantrell, PhD, MD, PsyD

Cancer Update from Rick Cantrell:

  1. \Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.
  2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime.
  3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.
  4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, but also to environmental, food and lifestyle factors.
  5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet to eat more adequately and healthy, 4-5 times/day and by including supplements will strengthen the immune system.
  6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastrointestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.
  7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.
  8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.
  9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.
  10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.
  11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply. CANCER CELLS FEED ON:
    > Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses , but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in color Better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt.
    > Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk cancer cells are being starved.
    > Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little other meat, like chicken. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.
    > A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C)..
    > Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer fighting properties. Water-best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.
  12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines becomes putrefied and leads to more toxic buildup.
  13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.
  14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the bodies own killer cells to destroy cancer cells.. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.
  15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger, un-forgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.
  16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help  to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

About Mirabai Ceiba...

10895848682?profile=originalA gentle yet expansive spirit pervades all the music of Mirabai Ceiba. The delicate sounds of harp, piano, and guitar blend with lovingly intertwined voices amid lush celestial soundscapes. Their concerts are group celebrations for peace—joyous and loving occasions that embody the duo’s profound belief in music as a universal language uniting all the world’s peoples, cultures and traditions.

Mirabai Ceiba is a duo consisting of guitarist/singer Markus Sieber and singer/harpist/keyboardist Angelika Baumbach. They come from different parts of the world. Markus is East German. Angelika was born in Tucson, Arizona, and grew up in a small village near Mexico City, the daughter of a Mexican mother and German father. Markus and Angelika first met at a street fair at Scotland’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival and quickly fell in love. Markus was pursuing a successful acting career at the time, and Angelika was touring the world as a singer/ songwriter. But the newly formed couple decided to share their love with the world through uplifting music steeped in spirituality, tenderness and beauty.

Together, Angelika and Markus have forged engaging new style of world devotional music blending Gurmukhi mantras from the Kundalini Yoga tradition with original songs in English and Spanish that reflect a Native American influence and also draw words of wisdom from Rumi, Thich Nhat Hanh, Guru Nanak and Yogi Bhajan.

Through exquisitely crafted recordings like their CD A HUNDRED BLESSINGS, Mirabai Ceiba weave a beguiling tapestry from these diverse influence and sources. And that’s what the music feels like: a beneficent and abundant gift from the universe. In concert, they inspire all present to chant together in a spirit of

compassionate love and Oneness.

Even the name Mirabai Ceiba embodies the influences of both India and Native Latin America. Mirabai (1498- 1547) was a Hindu mystical singer. Her songs express the longing of the individual self to be one with the universal self, represented by Krishna. For Angelika and Markus, the name Mirabai „is the exploration, the

devotion, the inspiration in all the different aspects of divinity.“

And the Ceiba is a sacred tree of Latin America which is never cut and grows very tall. „We wish our music could be like the Ceiba tree,” say Markus and Angelika, “with roots deep in Mother Earth and branches extending far and wide into Father Sky.“

They recorded their Album Debut „Flores“ in 2004 with Spirit Voyage Music, followed by „Ocean“ 2008, nominated as ‚Best Vocal Album of 2008‘ by New Age Reporter, and ‚A hundred Blessings‘ 2010, named by ‚LA Yoga‘ magazine among years best of 2010.

“Mirabai Ceiba, with their music, take us into this divine realm of spirit that we all long for.” Snatam Kaur

“Their Music comes from a pure space of Love.” Deva Premal

“Mirabai Ceiba’s album is titled A Hundred Blessings. And that’s what the music feels like: a beneficent and abundant gift from the universe.” Alan di Perna, writer for Yoga Journal and Rolling Stone

The Mayan Calendar | Devotional Tantra

10895847486?profile=originalBy Rundy, Devotional Tantra

Today is the Aquarius New Moon, the Chinese New Year: The Year of the Dragon, and in numerology an 11 day 1 + 23 (5) + 2012 (5) = 11. The new moon represents new beginnings, what begins anew in your life today? And 11 is the number (vibration) of mastery, together these energies present lots of heavenly possibilities.

At the end of this email are the updates for classes, radio-show, etc.

But first I want to delve into the topic of the Mayan Calendar for this is an area of in depth study for me. As we begin to head full force into 2012 the December 21, 2012 date of the Mayan Calendar looms in the backs of many peoples minds -- many people are curious as to what to expect. Fortunately there are many scholarly books written on the subject, the Argüelles and the Calleman books in particular, are quite interesting and inspiring to read. There are some astrological and numerological insights as well, which give us a pretty clear indication as to what to expect.

Because the Mayan Prophecies are based on the astrological orbit of Venus we can assume that the 2012 planetary alignment will be like other similar planetary alignments, which means, usually on the date they actually do occur no one notices much of anything. Yet, later, we see that many things did in all actuality shift.

Does anyone recall the much ballyhooed Harmonic Convergence of 1987? It was not as well known as the Mayan Calendar, but it was quite significant at the time nevertheless, and looking back we can recognize its influence, and also that it served as an energetic cleansing that prepared us for where we are now as a civilization.

Using the system of numerology look at the date of the Mayan Prophecy and what do you see? 12 – 21 – 2012. Every number is either a one or a two. Ones represent the visionary. Twos represent collaboration. In numerology the numbers are always added and then reduced so 12 becomes 1 + 2 = 3. Three is the number of communication. 2 + 1 = 3 is repeated. Then we come to 2012. 2 + 1 + 2 = 5. Five is the number of freedom and the progressive. Together we get 12 (3) + 21 (3) + 2012 (5) = 11. Ahhh, now there is the ticket, for 11 is the number (or vibration) of mastery. The sum total of the numerological numbers on that date indicates vision, collaboration, communication, progress, and mastery. In a nutshell the numbers on that day tell us that we are entering into a new age when the expression of progressive global communication will be redefined and by some, mastered.

But wait, you might be asking, global communication has already happened with computers right? Yes, on both a superficial and a technical level, but humanity is being called to communicate in an entirely new way – a way founded in compassion, empathy, and understanding. Until now almost all global communication has been male oriented with an emphasis on speed and efficiency. It has been primarily cerebrally focused and devoid of heart. While tolerance and acceptance of that which is different are positive steps in today’s world they are not the same as genuine respect, interest, and curiosity in that which is different. We are being called to slow way down and to care about each other, to inquire and learn about each other, and to show this in the way we communicate. How do I know this? That is where Venus and Neptune come in.

As mentioned previously the Mayan Calendar is based on the orbit of the planet Venus. Additionally, right around the Mayan December date the sign of Neptune enters its original sign of Pieces for the first time since its discovery. Venus is the lower octave of love, Neptune the higher. Make no mistake here; The Mayan Prophecies represent a huge purification and shift in global consciousness and the foundation for this new and elevated consciousness is unmistakably love.

The planet Venus represents the expression of love, romance, affection, beauty, pleasure, happiness, luxury, manners and social graces. Neptune is the planet of mysticism, cosmic transmissions, spirituality, idealism, mystery, intuition, dreams, singing, surrealism, archetypes, fantasy and imagination. Together, these planets will serve to redefine mankind’s concept of beauty, serve to open humanities collective heart, and place an emphasis on all things feminine such as intuition, receptivity, mutuality, adaptability, compassion, kindness, service, connection with the earth, and reconnection to humanity at large. Naturally this energy will affect all consciousness on this planet, but those who are humble and pure of heart will hold the keys to the kingdom and have access to never seen before psychic, cosmic, spiritually, and creative abilities and gifts – the Light of God will literally shine through them.

Edgar Cayce and many other great mystics’ have prophesied about a time in the not too distant future when man would be ready to finally step into his true divine destiny; Cayce spoke of strategically placed crystals and other healing modalities that were hidden around the earth and once discovered would be great tools for healing and peace. These tools, he predicted, would elevate mankind if and when mankind was ready to work with such powerful energies. Is that time here? Sadly I don’t think so; as long as we live in an apathetic, material-obsessed world filled with hate, prejudice, corruption, and self absorption the answer is an unequivocal no.

“So there’s a lotta sense in living when the world we know starts giving, we can spread our wings some sunny day and fly away. But ‘til we all fly together what sense does it make?” - Seals & Crofts

But just as the Harmonic Convergence prepared some numbers of light-workers, the Mayan Prophecies will prepare even more, and soon the numbers of those serving the light will be great enough to create the necessary shifts to save our planet and each other and reclaim heaven on earth.

For true spiritual seekers – those who truly love and serve God --the Mayan Calendar transmission is going to be an awesome time. It is going to be a time when there are no limits to human/divine expression, a time to experience unlimited divine gifts while still living in an earth-bound body. Many people are already working with these incoming frequencies through spiritual practices like daily meditation.

But for much of humanity, those living a low chakra existence, nothing much will change. The world around them will just seem to spin faster and faster until the energies become too much – too intense and they will either continue to numb themselves or choose to leave their bodies and return home to God.

Have you noticed how many people have been dying the past 2-3 years? It is astounding. But mourn not the dead, for they are at peace and merely retuning “home” to God; mourn the living, those who are paralyzed with fear who are sleepwalking through life. Many souls are retuning “home” to regroup and reincarnate again right away in this new and glorious global consciousness, and still others will want to leave earth and work as light-workers on the other side.

Just remember, no matter how bad things may appear with wars, poverty, social, economic, and environmental issues, all this was expected; as polarity and duality are natural laws of the universe. We cannot expect great light without first experiencing great dark.

“There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.” - Leonard Cohen

So start preparing now! Practice love, kindness, generosity, and selflessness, let these qualities define who you are. Help anyone you possibly can in any way you can; become a smile millionaire. Focus on Neptunian pursuits such as yoga, meditation, prayer, dream-work, creative pursuits, nature rituals, moon rituals, bathing rituals, and learning to be still and quiet. Reach out to your Angels and guides. Read books about astral-projection, crystals, dowsing, psychic healing, intuition, channeling, clairvoyance, horse-whispering, astrology, numerology, and kundalini. Get out in nature, go to bed early. Go for walks and stretch to strengthen and purify your body and prepare for the divine energies at hand. And most important of all, commune daily with God, for that is the Source of all this magic. No matter how fast the world may spin we are safe, for God is holding us all. The Mayan Calendar promises to awaken divine gifts in those who truly aspire to serve. You can do or be anything you want; the only limits to the human potential are those that exist in our own mind. Do you want to serve self or a higher purpose? The choice is yours. God is waiting for you - God is waiting for us all.

The on-line Radio show “tantra-talk” is a show focused entirely on answering listener’s questions about the topics of sacred sexuality and sexual healing and will be on the air any day now. In the blog section the Men’s health blog has been updated and there is a new blog in the Metaphysics section. It is an astrological profile comparing the lives of Michael Jordan and Michael Jackson. New classes are on the way, and I am available for private seasons. See the Services tab on the website.

That’s my two cents worth, thank you for reading.

My wish for you all is that you will continue to develop your minds, question everything, impact change, and most important of all, keep your hearts open and pure, and your face always to God.

With Love,
Rundy

By Happy Oasis, Raw Spirit Community News

SouthYubaRiver-288.jpg?width=288How we wash our clothes intimately reflects the quality of our relationship with nature, joy and life. My Beloved, Johnny Light, and I are traveling indefinitely in our cozymost, humble, little eco-rv, fondly called our "Creational Vehicle". Arriving at a new town today, the appeal of going to a laundromat feels less than tantalizing.

For 20 joyous years I lived out of a backpack, two-booting it around the planet, gladly washing my two changes of clothing by hand in mountaintop stream springs near forest fire lookout towers, in East Indian riverfront ashrams' community baths, Buddhist Thai and Burmese jungle temples' pools, beneath Malaysian island waterfalls, between venerable trees at Mexican mortar and pestle outdoor 'laundromats', occasionally doing the twist with a foot in each bucket, sometimes resorting to the loveliest and laziest of all: swimming in my dresses.

Just between us, I'd like to share this private conversation with my beloved.

"Happy, Did you say, 'Wash our clothes in the river?' Why would we do that?, he winced. "Nobody washes their clothing by hand!"

"All of humanity has been washing its clothes by hand," I reminded him, "for several millennia, except a recent abberation where in a few dozen countries washing machines have gained popularity for the last 60 years ~ a mere drop in the bucket of humanity's timeline."

"At the laundromat it takes only an hour and a half," he reasoned.

10895848452?profile=original"If we do it together," I smilingly persisted, "it will take us only about 20 vigorous minutes of dunking, scrubbing, splash-slapping and squeeze-wringing". "Then," I explained, "we simply spread the clothes out on the largest, darkest, hottest boulders. After a half hour we flip the clothing. After an hour in the tepid weather, our clothing will be as if starch-dried, stiff as a board, and crisp as raw crackers!"

"What about the ecology?", he wondered aloud, not convinced.

"Exactly. Imagine this. No industrial machines. No electricity. No grumbling, rumbling noises. No detergent. No whizzing traffic. No dreary ambiance. No coins. $10 saved and better spent elsewhere on green drinks and smoothies."

"I mean, what about getting soap in the river?"

"We use no soap at all," I said. "Yet, the aroma of clean river-washed, sun-dried clothing exudes the freshest scent imaginable!"

"With our clothing strewn across the boulders, people will think we're from the Backwaters of Goodness-Knows-Where."

"We will be in the backwaters. People will think we're living in a state of joyful wild abandon."

"We are!", he exclaimed. "Every day!"

"And night", I added.

"What kind of wild adventure are you taking me on next?"

"What you will find most precious of all, Treasured Beloved, is how we enjoy our time while "waiting" for the sunshine to do the work. At Nature's River Laundromat, we are free to dip our feet into the river, listen to the giggling currents, gaze at the water shimmer-glistening..."

"...We are free to swim, splash and stretch; to sunbathe alongside our clothes; pick fat blackberries, suck on wild grapes, and feast on succulent figs, maybe even hike to some hidden valley with a guitar and songs in our hearts… we could possibly even make beautiful love in a secret spot beneath the trees."

"All this while waiting for our laundry to dry?," he smiled.

"Yes! Or we could just go to a laundromat if you find that more inspiring." ~ Happy

The GuruGanesha Band is the latest project from the mind, heart and guitar of world devotional music pioneer GuruGanesha Singh. Renowned for his work with sublime vocalists like Snatam Kaur, Nirinjan Kaur and Tina Malia, GuruGanesha steps into the limelight with his latest musical venture, a multi-talented ensemble culled from the A-list of players and singers on today’s rapidly-expanding kirtan/chant/yoga music scene.

Long noted for the effortless grace and mellifluous lyricism of his acoustic guitar work, GuruGanesha has turned his talents to his first love, the electric guitar, to ignite the incandescent sound of The GuruGanesha Band. With shimmering, glassy tonalities and evocative textures, he takes the vast sonic potential of modern guitar electronics to a new and blissful place. Accompanying him on this musical journey are master cellist/multi-instrumentalist Hans Christian (RASA, Krishna Das, Robbie Robertson, Harry Manx, Jai Uttal and Donna De Lory), tabla/percussion stalwart Daniel Paul (Jai Uttal, Jaya Lakshmi, Donna De Lory, K. Sridhar), beguiling and unforgettable newcomer Michelle Hurtado on vocals, Spirit Voyage recording artist/ kundalini yoga teacher Sat Kartar Singh on acoustic guitar, and kundalini bass guitar magician Gurusangat Singh (recording artist and producer of the popular Miracle Mantra Series).

“This is a project that I’ve had in my heart for many years,” says GuruGanesha. “The idea behind The GuruGanesha Band is to bring to the world music scene a group that can musically hold its own with the great guitar bands of all time, but instead of conventional lyrics, singing mantras and divine poetry to transport audiences to a profoundly beautiful and transcendent place. All of the spiritual and musical work I’ve done for the past 39 years has been preparing me for this.”

10895847859?profile=originalGuruGanesha describes the GGB sound as “a unique blend of kirtan, raga, rock, and deeply meditative folk music. I will primarily be playing electric guitar and I’ve hand-picked the musicians not only for their musical virtuosity but also for their ability to channel the spiritual energy that the band will be serving. The vocals will be a group effort with plenty of rich two and three part harmonies though Michelle will regularly step out and blow people away with her amazing vocal improvisations. The audience will be encouraged to fully participate, whether it be singing along, dancing or just meditating deeply on the music.”

Come share a magical evening of music, stories, joy and inspiration with GuruGanesha and his incomparable band. All profits from the concerts will be donated to some of GuruGanesha’s favorite charities.

If you have ever heard talk or been to a seminar about “sovereignty”, then very likely those conversations were influenced by the foundational research of the author and educator.

His research and educational journey reaching millions of people worldwide began in 1992 and culminated in 2022 with the 3 Volume book release - his final word on the subject. At the turn of the millennium his books and audio courses facilitated in part –  a sovereignty and tax-honesty movement that involved millions of Americans.

This 3 Volume series comprises the life’s work of Johnny Liberty filled with comprehensive insights into the last few hundred years of history, law, economics, money, citizenship and governance.

These books show how it is supposed to be done in a constitutional Republic. How did We the People get to where we are today? What can we do to reclaim our inherent sovereignty and natural rights?  Many of the answers may be found within these revolutionary pages. Available as a Paperback, E-Book (PDF) or Amazon Kindle format. Thank you for supporting the author.
