What is the price of telling the Truth? - A Tribute to Whistleblowers

WHAT EXACTLY IS THE PRICE OF TELLING THE TRUTH in a society where telling lies seems to bring the most benefit?

Not benefit to the majority, mind you. Only benefit to the MINORITY - lead by a few selfish individuals who have very narrow ideas of "what works" in society.

AREN’T WE ALL TIRED of the lies our own governments tell us? Of LISTENING TO THE HYPROCISY of "DO AS I SAY, BUT NOT AS I DO!"??

In the UK, we are seeing the present government insist on bringing FRACKING to blight the beauty of our natural landscape and poison our water supplies, despite massive public protest.

Now, instead of listening to the people, the government is trying to rush through a GAGGING LAW to prevent charities, NGOs, and other non-party organisations from speaking out against them, whilst their LOBBYISTS continue to pay them huge sums of money behind the scenes to ensure a "favourable" outcome.

The UK government - supposedly democratic - wants to censor the Internet, including "esoteric material". It speaks of "protecting the children" but has decreased the budget of its leading Child Protection Agency. Why doesn't it EDUCATE PARENTS to take a more active role in their children's lives?

Isn't it time for a NEW PARADIGM? One that honours Freedom and Justice for ALL?!

The only way for this to happen is for us to stand up and SPEAK THE TRUTH, when prompted by our INNER VOICE.

A voice which cares more about the Unity and Oneness of the HUMAN RACE, than the greediness and narrow-mindedness of self-serving authority figures.

We would to well to exercise BETTER DISCERNMENT as to who we put in power over us. And when we (the public), do put others in power, there must be TRANSPARENCY and ACCOUNTABILITY!

We must act each day! Whenever we can! We must not leave it to others to do the work!

Let a NEW DAWN rise!

Listen to this short clip on "a tribute to whistleblowers".

Earlier this year, in July, the UK Media were wholly engaged in disseminating the propaganda about Prime Minister David Cameron’s plans to put in filters to block pornography from harming children, whilst failing to mention that a host of other categories were also involved, with alarming ramifications down the road.

What could the public do, except cheer and advocate that this was the “right thing” to do? 

Worryingly, there was no critical analysis of exactly what Mr Cameron was discussing with the major ISPs, which deliver internet access to 95% of British users! 

Luckily, a few people smelt a rat, and investigated further… what they found was shocking!

Firstly, it was discovered that the filtering company that would implement Prime Minister Cameron’s deal with the four biggest ISPs was Chinese firm Huawei.

Politicians in both the UK and US have raised concerns about alleged close ties between Huawei and the Chinese government but, not surprisingly, the company says the worries are without foundation.

Are they?

Customers who do not want filtering still have their traffic routed through the monitoring system! In other words, they are being spied upon, without consent!

Additionally, and of interest to all of us here in the UK, Huawei were actually banned from bidding for Australia's biggestinternet project, the National Broadband Network (NBN), because of concerns it might lead to cyber attacks due to their strong ties with China. 

Secondly, Open Rights Group was amongst the first to discover that Mr Cameron’s plans also include possible plans to block “esoteric material” and “web forums” amongst other categories. This was also reported on Wired and The Huffingon Post.

Esoteric material? Web forums?


Who will determine what the word "esoteric" means?  It is painfully obvious that the word "esoteric" is a broad catch-all term/category that is ripe for misuse by our government and their lobbyists. Certainly, 'esoteric material' could mean anything that the government wants!

Usually, the word esoteric points to spiritual teachings and/or practices that fall outside of mainstream religion – for example, information about paganism, about witchcraft, shamanism, and those that contain “alternative” spiritual ideas - all of which the government would deem "radical" and "unsuitable" for children.

The highly interesting phenomena of UFOs and Crop Circles would undoubtedly fall into that category also.

"Esoteric material” could easily be extended to any websites that mention “healing”, or are seen to be “cult like”. Of course, we have no idea who is deciding all this, as it is being done behind the scenes.

Reiki, for example, is a popular alternative healing modality in the UK. Yet, when Reiki first came to the USA, and then to the UK, those practising it were seen as weird and Reiki societies were branded as “cults” or “sects” by those outside of Reiki circles.

If so-called cults or sects are automatically blocked by the intended filters, less and less people will come to know about esoteric material that could actually benefit them! Thousands of people have benefited from Reiki, and hundreds of books have been written on the subject now. 

Pharmaceutical lobbying continues to influence governmental decisions about healthcare, and they would no doubt rub their hands with glee if they could block many alternative websites that don’t conform to “mainstream thought” on health!

Censorship is seemingly happening everywhere as “those in power” seek to control what information we have access to. TED Talks, once a platform for cutting-edge talks on science, has now been hijacked by those who wish to dumb down what information is disseminated to the general public.

TED’s rulership has censored the “radical” ideas of leading British scientists Rupert Sheldrake and Graham Hancock because both Sheldrake and Hancock spoke about “consciousness” (very unscientific, apparently) and also raised very pertinent questions about scientific dogmas that prevail within society’s worldview of reality. 

Isn't it valid for a leading scientist to question the mainstream scientific approach? Apparently not!

When you understand that the parents of the children will also not access this type of "esoteric" information, we can see that the UK is at serious risk of going backwards in consciousness! The UK is being positioned as a big kindergarten in which even adults will be treated as children that need to be 'protected'.

Yet, education is far more effective than dogmatic rules and regulations ever could be! Education empowers society, whereas covert rules and regulations disempower us at a stroke.

Mr Cameron and the UK government could easily demand that all schools have a duty of care to EDUCATE PARENTS about installing anti-porn software on their home computers, and instruct them on how to more effectively monitor their children’s behaviour. Surely, we want parents more involved in their kids’ lives, not less?!

“Set it and forget it” is a terrible example to children!




Do you really want to open the doors to full-blown censorship of the internet down the road? This pretext of blocking pornography provides Mr Cameron and his government with the perfect opportunity to decide what websites are secretly removed from the public eye down the road. Not immediately, but down the road.

Yet, could it be YOUR blog? Could it be YOUR business? Could it be YOUR livelihood?  

Does your website or blog mention anything that the government deems to be “unsafe” or “unfit” for “the safety of the children?” How will you know exactly?

The implications of Mr Cameron’s censorship are not only worrying but they are also totally unworkable, and out of touch with the reality of the internet.
What if advice on dealing with sexual abuse is blocked? What if a child or teenager is abused at home, and the finding of such a resource online could literally save that child’s life from further harm?
Wikipedia founder and high profile adviser to Prime Minister Cameron, Jimmy Wales, has repeatedly called Mr Cameron’s online porn filter 'an absolutely ridiculous idea'.

On top of all this, we have to ask why the government hasn't been doing anything to protect children in real terms, apart from its public announcement to censor the internet?

Ex-CEOP chief says that the Prime Minister's child-abuse police figures are wrong, and Tracy Edwards MBE, the former round-the-world yachtswoman who worked as a project manager for CEOP in 2007, insists that reduced funding is letting known paedophiles escape punishment. 

"CEOP has incredible intelligence on people who are abusing children," she said. "They have the intelligence on who these people are, where they are, but they don't have the resources to go and arrest them, and they certainly don't have the resources to go through their computer drives."

Her comments were backed up by Jim Gamble in an interview with Radio 4:

"This government has stood still for two years with regards to CEOP - CEOP's budget has, in real terms, decreased," he said. "There are 50,000 predators, we're told by CEOP, downloading images on peer-to-peer, not Google, peer-to-peer. Yet from CEOP intelligence, only 192 were arrested last year." 

More food for thought!

When I found about the government’s intention to block esoteric material, alongside pornography, I immediately started a petition on because I was seriously alarmed by the implications of this manoeuvre. 

The government is supposed to be accountable to the general public. The very fact that this is a closed-door process should ring alarm bells for all of us! What exactly is the government’s agenda? Nobody really knows!

Alarmingly, this is not the only instance of the government trying to silence the public voice, or suppress information that could be seen to “harm” its own agenda.

MP Chloe Smith has recently been trying to rush through a new "gagging law" which would stop charities and other non-profit organisations running campaigns one year before elections because it could "harm" those in power. Quite rightly, there has been a massive outcry against this legislation by charities and other non-party organisations across the UK, leading to a U-turn by the government.

Now it is time for another massive outcry against the proposed “pornwall” filters that are set to come into effect next year (2014).

There has already been a dangerous precedent set here in the UK, with public WiFi hotspots at McDonald's and Caffe Nero blocking "alternative belief/spirituality" websites, and Orange blocking websites that promote “esoteric practices” on their pay-as-you-go phones.

This is simply unbelievable – and actually contravenes the Human Rights convention! But does the UK government care?

The Guardian recently picked up that the UK government wishes to scrap the Human Rights Act and withdraw from the European Convention on Human Rights! 

Should we be concerned about living in a country that appears democratic on the surface but is actually acting more like Big Brother every day? Absolutely!

Can we do something about it? Yes! But we have to take massive, consistent action against it and demand that the government act openly and accountably towards its public.

Adult filtering amounts to censoring legal content. The UK would be the first "democratic" society to do this, and this sets a terrible example to other countries with interests in suppressing information!

If we sleepwalk into censorship in the UK, other countries will surely follow suit. Other governments are watching carefully to see what they can get away with! 

Conservative MP Joy Smith says she wants to see Canada adopt legislation that requires residents to request access to pornography from their internet service providers or have all pornographic material preemptively blocked.

Bill No. 2511/2012-CR introduced by Congressman Omar Chehade and the Nationalist caucus raises serious questions about individual freedoms in Peru. The project aims to establish a national system of mandatory filters for all Internet providers to prevent access to pages with pornographic content. This filter would be applied by default to all users of the Internet and the only way around it would be by expressly asking the operator to turn it off.

So let's stop this from being a run-away train RIGHT NOW! Write to David Cameron and copy your own MP in now! Express your extreme concern about what is being planned!

You can contact No. 10 Downing Street via its web form, or write directly to David Cameron at If you are emailing him directly, please be polite, and also include your full postal address.

A sample letter can be found here.

act NOW!
Make sure you tell all your friends and family members that their internet freedom really is at stake. Then sign the petition on before it’s too late!

This could easily be OUR last chance to maintain internet freedoms. If we allow this, there will be no turning back! At the very least, it would be a huge struggle. Freedom lost is not easily regained.

You take the blue pill - go back to sleep, and believe that David Cameron's internet censorship really is about 'protecting the children'. You take the red pill - stay informed and see just how deep the implications of default online censorship go.

The Case of Sarah Colwill - Foreign Accent Sydrome or Xenoglossy?!

Sarah Colwill, 38, suddenly gained a Chinese accent since falling ill with a migraine in 2010, conveniently labelled as 'Foreign Accent Syndrome'.

"...since that fateful 2010 day, Sarah's focus has been almost entirely on getting her voice back. But with doctors and scientists equally mystified, it's been a struggle. There is one clue though - Sarah is a migraine sufferer. She gets them, she says, around 10 times a month and so far, medics have been unable to find anything that gets rid of them completely. This could be important, as one of the few things known about Foreign Accent Syndrome is that its linked to headaches and is thought to be a type of neurological brain damage." 

[Excerpt from Daily Mail article:]

This article makes no mention of the Soul, or the idea that Consciousness extends beyond the actual physical body.

It is a well know fact (yes, fact!) that people can access "other lives" through past-life regressions or even spontaneously. This is another piece of evidence - and, once again, ignored!

According to the past-life research of the late Dr Ian Stevenson, there have been many instances of Xenoglossy, meaning the ability to speak/understand a foreign language that has not been learned in the present lifetime.

In addition to the recovery of a language from a past lifetime, in some xenoglossy cases, the entire past life personality emerges and essentially takes over the body of the contemporary personality.

In Sarah Colwill's case, she has not taken on the personality of the life, just the accent. A "doorway" in the inner mind has opened. Remember, the brain is receiving signals from the field of consciousness - it is not a self-contained box!

If you're interested in the subject of our real nature, and the journey of the Soul, you may like to read Dr Semkiv's excellent, and highly accessible, book on the subject of reincarnation here:

These ideas of "past lives" and "reincarnation" are so horrific to modern, scientific, reductionist thought, that we now have an entirely stupid name for this trans-personal phenomenon: Foreign Accent Syndrome.

I know which theory intuitively and also rationally makes the most sense; yet, to even look at the evidence for Xenoglossy, we have to at least be open to the understanding that we are not simply our bodies.

Isn't it time we stopped overlooking the multidimensional nature of our souls?

The War on Consciousness and the Rise of Ayahuasca

Take a few minutes to listen to this inspiring video titled "The War on Consciousness" by Graham Hancock.

If you are on a mobile device and can't see the embedded video, here's the link:

This is a removed TED Talk since the very notion that humans might have consciousness was so offensive to the TED "high priests" that they felt the talk needed to be suppressed and removed it from circulation. Luckily, it is still active on YouTube (but for how long?).

In his talk (recorded earlier this year), Graham Hancock talks openly about the increasing use of Ayahuasca to help raise one's consciousness, highlighting a desperate need for mankind to wake up in the face of massive, self-destructive tendencies that are combining to threaten a world-wide ecological disaster of gargantuan proportions. We are honestly on a sinking ship, but our governments and those who wield the most power just want it to be "business as usual"!

Control, power and greed underpin the vast majority of the western world's business, economic and political activities. Even worse, the east is now copying the west's approach, diminishing its rich spiritual heritage.

Could the rise of individual consciousness be so threatening to the current paradigm, which only benefits the few (i.e. "the rich and powerful") while the majority suffer, that those in power would do anything they can to suppress it? The answer is a resounding "yes"!

Ayahuasca (if you haven't heard of it already) is a natural hallucinogenic that helps to elevate consciousness.

Peruvian shamans commonly mix the leaves of DMT (dimethyltryptamine) containing plants like Psychotria with the the Banisteriopsis caapi vine, which is a source of monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI), allowing humans to drink the plant (rather than smoking it) in order to receive its potent effects.

The use of ayahuaca continues to remain illegal in many western countries, so it is interesting to note that many people are flocking to the Amazonian Jungle to try it for themselves. It is not something to be tried lightly, as it has severe physical, mental and emotional effects.

My friend, and astrologer, Mark Flaherty's world turned upside down when he was diagnosed with an "incurable illness", but a voice within insisted that the answer lay with ayahuasca—a sacred, visionary plant medicine.

Mark left his home, here in England, to live among the shamans of the Peruvian Amazon, and participated in hundreds of ayahuasca ceremonies.

His book "Shedding the layers" is a truly captivating true story of his fight to heal himself through unorthodox means, and a demonstration of faith in a healing power that shapes, yet transcends, the human experience.

The purpose and intent of the ayahuasca brew typically brings about an ascension in consciousness.

DMT naturally occurs in humans in trace amounts , where it functions as a neurotransmitter - but it has been deemed "illegal" by "those in power"!

Don't you find it extremely interesting that a drug that helps people connect with their inner spirit (or spiritual self), and thus ascend in consciousness, is clamped down very hard upon by a hypocritical "authority"?

This same authority (our governments) actively encourage the use of other drugs, such as alcohol, which typically bring about a sharp devolution in consciousness (just go to any pub or bar on a weekend!) as people indulge in "boozing benders" to escape their long working week, and jobs they typically hate!

This behaviour, of course, keeps them exactly where the government wants them to be - nursing their hangovers, and not questioning their day-to-day reality! The bigger questions of life are simply avoided entirely: "Who am I?", "Why are we here?", "What is the purpose of life?" and so on...

Of course, the government gets a nice fax tax, and it pretends that it's doing a good job for society by "cleaning up all those drunk bums" on the street, and tackling alcohol-fuelled crime and anti-social behaviour caused by drinking copious amounts of legally provided alcohol.

Oh, did I forget to mention all the advertising that is allowed to make drinking look cool, since the government continually receives nice, fat paychecks from the pro-alcohol lobbyists!

Society needs alcohol, apparently, but not ayahuasca.

Society, apparently, also needs anti-depressants and other drugs created by Big Pharma to save itself from its own self-destruction - typically created by an ever increasing sense of isolation and disconnection - but doesn't need ayahuasca.

Did I forget to mention the incredible amount of money that our governments receive from the leading pharmaceutical companies to ensure their products reach the market as "safe" and "effective"?

Did you know that people who routinely drink lots of alcohol (which is highly toxic to the brain and body), and then drink lots of caffeine to "wake themselves up" after a night out,  will eventually become severely dehydrated and often suffer from depression, not to mention other ill effects of long-term "social drug" abuse. Just go to any hospital and see for yourself!

Eventually, our "social" habits do catch up with us!

Of course, Big Pharma kindly supplies all the hospitals with its radical new drugs to take care of you, once your body fails. Who's constantly getting richer from other people's misery? Drugs for life, anyone?

God help us all if we don't all wake up soon! Let's help each other - the truth is out!

Well done Graham Hancock!
