Petrified Tree Spotted On Mars?
“This image was taken by NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity on March 25. It appears to show a three-foot-tall petrified tree stump. Yeah, I know about pareidolia and realize people have claimed to see machinery and animals that were nothing more than obvious rocks. However, this doesn’t look like a rock…it looks out of place and actually looks like a tree stump. Well, if it is a rock, it certainly doesn’t look like anything I’ve seen before on Mar’s surface.”

Melena Hall Remote Viewing Mt. Etna Eruption
This is a remote-viewing training session done at The Farsight Institute. Melena Hall is remote viewing an eruption that occurred at Mount Etna during February 2017. The remote viewer is blind to the target, as with all remote viewing done at The Farsight Institute. No one else was in the room when this video was recorded. Prior to that which is shown in this video, there was a 1 hour meditation and a paper and pen session that was done as a “warm-up” for the video session. The viewer did the paper and pen session totally solo, with no one present in the room. Check our our Young Masters Series here: http://farsight.org/YoungMasters/index.html

How Living More Zen Can Change Your Life

Make Room for All Your Feelings
“Psychiatrist Mark Epstein says that traumatic stress is the very texture of our lives. Accepting that fact, he says, allows us to lean in to our suffering and emerge as more complete people through that experience. Epstein’s most recent book is The Trauma of Everyday Life. We spoke with him about the everyday nature of trauma, the strategies people use to avoid it, and how, if approached with an open heart and mind, trauma can be our greatest teacher.”

Secrets of the Centenarians
“If you make it to the ripe old age of 100, hardly a day will go by that someone won’t ask you what’s the secret of living to such a ripe old age. There’s only about a 1 in 1,000 chance that a 100-year-old person will become a “supercentenarian” —live to see their 110th birthday. So how did these folks make it that far? Here’s how these old-timers answered the question.”

Prof Says Technological Aliens Once Inhabited Solar System
“That’s the focus of a paper by Penn State University’s Dr. Jason T. Wright, an associate professor in astronomy and astrophysics. Published this week in arXic, “Prior Indigenous Technological Species” is based on Wright’s idea that an ancient species inhabited Earth and possibly one or more other planets in our solar system billions of years ago. Those species may have come from outside the solar system, but he also addresses the possibility that they originated on Earth. So where are they now? And if they‘re gone, where’s the evidence that they were here?”

AbeBooks’ Most Expensive Sales in January, February & March 2017
“A rare first edition showing the ruins of the ancient Syrian city of Palmyra in 1753 has sold for $12,926. The Ruins of Palmyra, otherwise Tedmor, in the Desart by Robert Wood and James Dawkins contains numerous illustrations, including a stunning folding panoramic plate offering a dramatic view of the ruined city in the 18th century. This book contained valuable historic information even before Islamic State forces destroyed sections of Palmyra in 2015. One plate oddly shows Wood and Dawkins arriving at the ancient site dressed in togas – the Romans were one of the later civilizations to take control of Palmyra. The book features three full-page engravings of inscriptions in text and 57 full-page engraved plates. This copy once belonged to the Marquis of Stafford and contains his bookplate. Our top 10 sales for this period also includes an encyclopedia, a book of sermons, two important books from Rene Descartes, a classic from JD Salinger, surrealist art, and the book that gave us Hamlet.”

Laurie Huston and Tom Campbell: Consciousness of Relationships
“Laurie Huston from News the Heart is talking with physicist Tom Campbell on the Consciousness of Relationships, Grab Bag (LOL). This is a deep conversation about the choices we make about relationships. We explore ways to BE happy and it can’t be from seeking it out. Happiness comes from letting go of our fears. Examining our fears based on when we get triggered. We added through this discussion how our reactions in relationships are always our fears and once we identify them, become authentic with them, accept them, then we can stop reacting from a place of fear. We also looked at our desire to be authentic and how to also express love to ‘other’ and accept other (as in relationships) we can grow towards love. Our biggest problem we come from this place we are in ego, placing conditions on Love and justifying everything that ‘happens’ as happening to us and bringing in our story. We need to understand that when we want something (happiness), our need to validate BEing right, we aren’t “loving” and it is all ego. Acceptance and BEing authentic are the first ways to face our fears and evolve towards Love. Accepting who we are, will assist us to understand ourselves and face our fears. Coming from a place of Love will always create what it is we desire most. Join us for this important discussion! We’re Getting to the Heart of what Matters!”

Your Basic Fairy Primer
“While we’re all waiting and transforming, we thought some of you might be interested in this. We saw some questions in the comments on Lynn and Da-da’s latest Five for Friday and wanted to chime in about fairies. Yes, there really are fairies and elves and minehunes and leprecauns and all sorts of elementals. In terms of fairies, several of us have firsthand experience with our “Good Friends” (how fairies like to be referred, they hate the name “fae” as it sounds like ‘fey’ which means ‘doomed to die’ in the old UK variants). All of the information below is our actual knowledge of fairies, based on direct firsthand observation, it’s not an opinion or something we’ve read in books.”

Ray Kurzweil Discusses His Optimism for the Future
“Futurist, author, inventor and Google Director of Engineering Ray Kurzweil spoke recently at the CeBIT 2017 Conference. In the talk, Kurzweil covered many of his common themes and extrapolations of his Law of Accelerating Returns, an extension of Moore’s Law. Kurzweil is famous, in large part for this postulation, which he uses to track many technology models that, when distilled to information, point to exponential progression trends.”

A guide to why your world is a hallucination
“In 2015, the MIND group founded by philosopher Thomas Metzinger of the Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz, Germany, set up the Open MIND project to publish papers by leading researchers. Unusually, the papers were published in open access electronic formats, as an experiment in creating a cutting edge online resource – and it was free. The first volume, spanning everything from the nature of consciousness to lucid dreaming, was a qualified success.
The second volume, Philosophy and Predictive Processing, focuses entirely on the influential theory in its title, which argues that our brains are constantly making predictions about what’s out there (a flower, a tiger, a person) and these predictions are what we perceive.”

New Moon 26 April ~ Blossoming
“The New Moon April 26 2017 falls in Taurus decan 1. The springtime, mythical theme continues with yet more activation of grain goddess Ceres/Demeter. This New Moon makes no aspects to the conventional planets, but is actually conjunct Asteroid Demeter, the Greek version of Ceres. The New Moon aligns with Fixed star Metallah, connected with Ceres also! We have Mercury retrograde traveling through this part of the sky which highlights the myth of Andromeda too, which is yet another mother/daughter theme. This New Moon clearly symbolised a rite of passage then. The idealistic but naïve virgin blossoms into the responsible and realistic mother.”

Roundtable Forum Thread(s) Of The Moment

Let’s all have a walking meditation


Walking Meditation: Peace is Every Step. It Turns the Endless Path to Joy by Thich Nhat Hanh. “What if every step you took deepened your connection with all of life and imprinted peace, joy, and serenity on the earth? With Walking Meditation, you will enjoy the first in-depth instructional program in this serene spiritual practice to help you walk with presence and peace of mind whether in nature or on a busy city street.

Walking Meditation features esteemed Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh along with one of his principle students, Nguyen Anh-Huong, as together they illuminate the central tenets of this powerful meditative art, including:

  • How to recognize the miracle in simply walking-not as a means to an end, but as the opportunity to touch the fullness of life
  • Reversing habit energy through the unification of body and mind
  • Using walking meditation to work with difficult emotions such as anger and anxiety, and much more

There is a Buddhist concept known as Apranihita, or the spirit of wishlessness, in which one neither pursues desires nor flees from discomforts. With Walking Meditation, practitioners from every spiritual tradition will rediscover our home in the here and now, as the long road we all must walk turns to quiet joy.”
