8 Different Types of Love According to the Ancient Greeks ~ Mateo Sol

8 Different Types of Love According to the Ancient Greeks.

There are many paths in life. But the longest of them all is the path to the heart. If you resist this path, you will take lifetimes to find it again. If you surrender and embrace it, you’ll be home.
We’ve all been blinded by the blanket of emotions that comes from falling down the precipice of union into love. While we only have one word for it, the ancient Greeks in their pursuit of wisdom and self-understanding, found eight different varieties of love that we all experience at some point.
When we understand the different types of love out there, we can become conscious of how deep our connection is with ourselves and the other people in our lives.
 

8 Different Types of Love

What different types of love are you currently experiencing and how are they impacting your life?

1. “Eros” or Erotic Love

The first kind of love is Eros, which is named after the Greek god of love and fertility. Eros represents the idea of sexual passion and desire.
The ancient Greeks considered Eros to be dangerous and frightening as it involves a “loss of control” through the primal impulse to procreate. Eros is a passionate and intense form of love that arouses romantic and sexual feelings.
Eros is an exulted and beautifully idealistic love that in the hearts of the spiritually mature can be used to “recall knowledge of beauty” (as Socrates put it) through Tantra and spiritual sex. But when misguided, eros can be misused, abused and indulged in, leading to impulsive acts and broken hearts.
Eros is a primal and powerful fire that burns out quickly. It needs its flame to be fanned through one of the deeper forms of love below as it is centered around the selfish aspects of love, that is, personal infatuation and physical pleasure.
Love Catalyst: The physical body

2. “Philia” or Affectionate Love

The second type of love is philia, or friendship. The ancient Greeks valued philia far above eros because it was considered a love between equals.
Plato felt that physical attraction was not a necessary part of love, hence the use of the word platonic to mean, “without physical attraction.” Philia is a type of love that is felt among friends who’ve endured hard times together.
As Aristotle put it, philia is a “dispassionate virtuous love” that is free from the intensity of sexual attraction. It often involves the feelings of loyalty among friends, camaraderie among teammates, and the sense of sacrifice for your pack.
Examples in Films: Girl with a Pearl Earring, The Girl Next Door
Love Catalyst: The mind

3. “Storge” or Familiar Love

Although storge closely resembles philia in that it is a love without physical attraction, storge is primarily to do with kinship and familiarity. Storge is a natural form of affection that often flows between parents and their children, and children for their parents.
Storge love can even be found among childhood friends that is later shared as adults. But although storge is a powerful form of love, it can also become an obstacle on our spiritual paths, especially when our family or friends don’t align with or support our journey.
Love Catalyst: Causal (Memories)

4. “Ludus” or Playful Love

Although ludus has a bit of the erotic eros in it, it is much more than that. The Greeks thought of ludus as a playful form of love, for example, the affection between young lovers.
Ludus is that feeling we have when we go through the early stages of falling in love with someone, e.g. the fluttering heart, flirting, teasing, and feelings of euphoria.
Playfulness in love is an essential ingredient that is often lost in long-term relationships. Yet playfulness is one of the secrets to keeping the childlike innocence of your love alive, interesting and exciting.
Love Catalyst: Astral (Emotion)

5. “Mania” or Obsessive Love

Mania love is a type of love that leads a partner into a type of madness and obsessiveness. It occurs when there is an imbalance between eros and ludus.
To those who experience mania, love itself is a means of rescuing themselves; a reinforcement of their own value as the sufferer of poor self-esteem. This person wants to love and be loved to find a sense of self-value. Because of this, they can become possessive and jealous lovers, feeling as though they desperately “need” their partners.
If the other partner fails to reciprocate with the same kind of mania love, many issues prevail. This is why mania can often lead to issues such as codependency.
Love Catalyst: Survival instinct

6. “Pragma” or Enduring Love

Pragma is a love that has aged, matured and developed over time. It is beyond the physical, it has transcended the casual, and it is a unique harmony that has formed over time.
You can find pragma in married couples who’ve been together for a long time, or in friendships that have endured for decades. Unfortunately pragma is a type of love that is not easily found. We spend so much time and energy trying to find love and so little time in learning how to maintain it.
Unlike the other types of love, pragma is the result of effort on both sides. It’s the love between people who’ve learned to make compromises, have demonstrated patience and tolerance to make the relationship work.
Love Catalyst: Etheric (Unconscious)

7. “Philautia” or Self Love

The Greeks understood that in order to care for others, we must first learn to care for ourselves. This form of self-love is not the unhealthy vanity and self-obsession that is focused on personal fame, gain and fortune as is the case with Narcissism.
Instead, philautia is self-love in its healthiest form. It shares the Buddhist philosophy of “self-compassion” which is the deep understanding that only once you have the strength to love yourself and feel comfortable in your own skin, will you be able to provide love to others. As Aristotle put it, “All friendly feelings for others are an extension of a man’s feelings for himself.
You cannot share what you do not have. If you do not love yourself, you cannot love anyone else either. The only way to truly be happy is to find that unconditional love for yourself. Only once you learn to love and understand yourself, will you be ready to search for the spiritual freedom of the Self.
Love Catalyst: Soul

8. “Agape” or Selfless Love

The highest and most radical type of love according to the Greeks is agape, or selfless unconditional love.
This type of love is not the sentimental outpouring that often passes as love in our society. It has nothing to do with the condition-based type of love that our sex-obsessed culture tries to pass as love.
Agape is what some call spiritual love. It is an unconditional love, bigger than ourselves, a boundless compassion, an infinite empathy. It is what the Buddhists describe as “mett?” or “universal loving kindness.” It is the purest form of love that is free from desires and expectations, and loves regardless of the flaws and shortcomings of others.
Agape is the love that is felt for that which we intuitively know as the divine truth: the love that accepts, forgives and believes for our greater good.
Love Catalyst: Spirit

Final Thoughts

Thanks to the ancient Greeks, we can learn from all the different types of love in our lives. Because of these distinctions, we can learn that in order to truly enjoy eros we must also search for greater depths through philia and cultivate ludus, avoiding mania as our relationships mature. It’s through these efforts that we’ll find pragma in our soulmate or twin flame relationships.
Finally, through the power philautia and agape we can come to understand how amazing our human hearts really are. Our hearts are the only things in the universe that grow larger the more they give to others.

The Body Language of Lying: Top Secrets Revealed by Psychologists ~ Margaret B.

The Body Language of Lying: 

Top Secrets Revealed by Psychologists.

By Margaret B.

January 25th, 2019. 

 

body language of lying.

 

 

The body language of lying is something that is very important to learn. This is not to say that everybody you meet will be a liar and a cheat, of course.

Simply put, knowing how to spot the signs of lying will make your life easier. Body language is a dead giveaway when it comes to this kind of thing. Knowing when somebody’s body language is giving away their true thoughts and intentions is critical. When it comes to business relationships, in particular, knowing the body language of lying is critical.
The underlying theory of the body language of lying is that people can’t control that body language. When body language and oral language matches up, everything is fine. Otherwise, something is wrong.
Read on for secrets shared by psychologists that can show you when somebody is lying!

Inconsistencies

People normally have a specific body language. This tip is only useful if you know someone well enough to know what their normal is, unfortunately. Sometimes people who normally act one way can act in another. The body language of lying will tell you that this means that they are not being honest with you.
One prominent example of this is when people use the wrong hand to gesture with. Most people will use their dominant hand to make gestures which are important. If they suddenly switch, that means that the person is most likely lying to you.

The eyes have it

Prolonged eye contact isn’t normal, but you should expect people to look at you at least some of the time. If someone is not looking at you, then this can be a sign of lying. It can mean that people are very uncomfortablewith what they are saying.
If someone is not looking at you, and their eyes are darting around, this can also be a sign. Darting eyes indicates discomfort. It means that people feel trapped by the situation, and also that they are trying to get out of it. Often by any means necessary.
Rapid blinking is another good tool to see the body language of lying. Most people blink a certain number of times a minute – and men blink less than women. If someone is blinking rapidly, it could just mean that they have something in their eye. It could, however, also mean that they are lying. People blink more rapidly when they are stressed.
As a corollary to this, check how long people close their eyes for. A blink doesn’t last very long. If someone is closing their eyes for longer, they are doing it as a defence mechanism. This defence mechanism could be in relation to them lying to you.
The way people look can sometimes be a giveaway. The direction of someone’s gaze often corresponds to their dominant hand. If a right-handed person looks left, they are accessing their imagination.
The same goes for left-handed people, except in reverse. The body language of lying has them act in opposition to their own normal. Think of why someone might need to use their imagination while talking to you…it could be because they are lying.

Smile!

Many people have a fake smile to go with their real one. A real smile will have an effect on the face as a whole. People get smile wrinkles and nose scrunches when they smile.
If the person you are talking to has them, it is a real smile. If not, then it is not a real smile. A fake smile could be a sign that people are lying to you.

Touch

People quite often touch their face when they lie. This is part of them being uncomfortable with what they are doing and saying. Keep an eye out for it! This part of the body language of lying is especially true for people who don’t normally touch their faces when speaking to someone.

Movement

Fidgeting is very common for people who are uncomfortable. Much like blinking, it is a defence mechanism, meant to keep us on the ready for anything bad happening.
It can function as a way of detecting lies with the body language of lying. If someone is fidgeting, it can mean that they are uncomfortable with what they are saying. If you want to see if someone is lying, watch for any untoward movements.
Body language, as has been said, should match the situation. It is very difficult to conceal your own body language, which is why so many people keep an eye on it. Whatever you are saying is mimicked in whatever you are doing. This can make lies and deceit very easy to spot, particularly when you are talking to someone you know well.
It would have a detrimental effect on your life to constantly be on the watch for signs of lying. It would probably be best if you didn’t try and find out if everybody you speak to is lying, but it can be helpful. In business terms, or when having a difficult conversation, it can be very helpful.

About Attachment ~ Thought Adjuster, Oscar.


About Attachment.

Teacher: Thought Adjuster

Message received by Oscar. 

Alabama, US of A, March 19, 2013.

Posted 2019/01/25




Thought Adjuster: “Most human dissatisfaction and sadness has its origin in misguided expectations of insisting in courses of action that do not provide true hapiness nor help one grow. This is the realization the Budha had a long time ago when he declared that the source of unhappiness is attachment — the obsessions of your mind. However, the advise of leaving all impulses and motivations behind is not productive. 

“There are purposes to which your mind should be attached. The purpose of attaining progressive perfection and understanding the will of the Father is a valuable one, that should not be abandoned when the first challenges and defeats are experienced. The purpose of loving more your peers should not be forgotten when you face ingratitude, mistrust and the attacks of those who still have not awakened to the realities of spirit. 

“It is wiser to let the mind focus its attention and resources in the eternal goals and to let behind the temporal enterprises in favor of those things that will bring you closer to your true being — your purpose in life. Human beings need a purpose, a motivation to elevate their lives above the animal level. When this motivation aspires to the supreme achievement of a human life — establishing an effective relationship with the Creator through His Divine Presence — the energies that transform a material creature into a potential spirit are unleashed. 

“It is you who has the control and the ability to choose where to invest your time and energy. Those who invest their treasure in material things end up in spiritual poverty, because everything that is material is tied to the matter and will be left behind when you move to the next level of existence. But those who invest their treasure in eternity are smart investors, because they have placed their hopes in a bank that will never fail and their wealth will be safeguarded by the Perfect One through eternity.”

The Battle For Control of Your Soul – The Fight For and Against the Future ~ Umair Haque.

The Battle For Control of Your Soul 

The Fight For and Against the Future.

By Umair Haque.

Posted January 24, 2019 by Edward Morgan.

I think there’s an unseen battle raging in the world today. It’s not a battle, really, over politics, society, or even the world. It’s about you. Who you really are, why you are here, and what your life means. It’s a battle for control of your soul.
You might think that’s overstated. I just want to put it simply and clearly — and you can be the judge. This battle is between between two ways of thinking, seeing, understanding the world. I’ll call them reductionism and expansionism. Now, I mean them in a subtle, difficult way. What is “expanded” or “reduced” is us, in the end, our better selves, our possibilities for meaning, happiness, purpose, our truths— but let me explain how.
To illustrate it, I’ll use the example of capitalism, which is today’s — and maybe history’s — greatest reductionist system. You can skip it, and go straight to the marrow if you want.
What do all today’s great problems have in common? Some — nationalism, extremism, neo-fascism — are forms of reactionary backlash to capitalism, what happens when capitalism degenerates into its raw elements, greed, fear, and hate. Some — climate change, inequality, middle class implosion, precarity, democratic decay — are direct consequences of capitalism, which, left to its own devices, will happily eat through everything. Today’s great global problems are all results of capitalism because capitalism is a form of reductionism. It’s a system that reduces everything in the world that matters, more or less, to nonexistence, erases it, beginning with you.
Hence, the more capitalism there is in a society, the more people feel a sense of meaninglessness and emptiness and futility. Our lives don’t matter very much, we feel, all too often — and so we try to fill the hole in our souls by doing what we’re told will make us happy, which is going out buying stuff. But what’s the point of buying stuff? It’s not the stuff. It’s status. So we buy something to relieve ourselves of the pain of meaninglessness — and maybe it works for a day or two. We feel like someone again. Until everyone else has it, and then the race starts all over again. We call all this “consumerism” — but I think that word fails to convey the sense of desperation, of hopelessness that drives the process.
Maybe, though, we don’t have the money even to do that. So what do we turn, for a sense of meaning and belonging and status? Nationalism, extremism, various forms of neo-fascism. We’re not at the bottom of the pecking order anymore. They are — those dirty, filthy subhumans. Now there’s not just a void — there’s a darkness, which is better, at least, than a nothingness. Hate, spite, and rage fill up the absence of a live which has gone nowhere. Now there is status, and with status comes pleasure, comes relief, comes the thrill and exhilaration of dominance and power. Control of your soul, remember?
(So when we say “capitalism”, we turn into a great abstraction what is a simple reality. Before, you might have been a carpenter or tradesman or farmer. Along comes capitalism. It says: now you work for us. Who’s us? Us is a “company” — only it’s not really a company, it’s those who own the company. Who’s that? Nobody really knows anymore. It’s some bizarre cocktail of billionaires, hedge funds, private equity groups, and whomever else holds the “shares” this week, month, nanosecond. Your job now is to maximize profits for them, whatever the costs. If it shreds your community, if it cheats your neighbours, if it impoverishes your town — so be it. Now you are working, you’re told, for a greater cause. That cause is everyone’s greater good, apparently — at least according to the theories of capitalism.
Only you don’t really see it turning out that way. What do you feel? You feel a sense of emptiness. Of meaninglessness. Nothing you do ever changes the basic fact of your exploitation, and nothing you do under the terms of exploitation ever gives you a sense that you matter. As your social bonds fray and tear, your sense of belonging erodes. As your community withers, your sense of being at home falls apart. You begin to feel like a little disconnected atom, alone in the universe, at odds with everyone else. It’s every person for themselves, isn’t it? Isn’t that the best — and only way — to live? Only the strong should survive — that is the principle of the moral crusade you are on, after all. Your job is to make a world where that is the only law.)
Capitalism has now produced in you it’s own internalized psychology — bang! It’s got your soul, somehow . You have become a true believer in the moral crusade. You prize self-interest, being on top, cruelty, possession. But you don’t quite connect the dots of your own unhappiness. Why does life feel so empty? Why do you feel like you’re never quite at peace, like you’ve never really arrived, like you’re never really at home? Why is there a constant sense of anxiety and unrest and dread in you? Wait — isn’t that normal, even good? Don’t only unquiet and harrowed minds produce great and wonderful things? And so there you are, pretending with one face — the public one — to be happy, while dying a little inside, every day, and keeping it bottled up, hidden away, carefully apart, where no one can see. Weakness is forbidden, after all. This is the birth of the false self, the inauthentic thing that capitalism makes of you. It has broken you now — your spirit, your true self, all the best things in you — only you don’t quite know it. You are being conditioned to reduceyourself to the smallest, shallowest part of you. You are becoming a reductionist — only you don’t know it yet.
Now, what can an inauthentic person do about great and grave problems? What can one who has internalized capitalism’s moral law — only the strong should survive, and the weak perish? So there is the world, being wracked by inequality, climate change, extremism, and so on — and here we are, foolish human beings, squabbling over petty things. Capitalism has left us not just economically and socially weak, but also morally and psychologically broken, too. It had deprived us of our courage, empathy, wisdom, and clarity — all the truest kinds of strength we have, and that we need. At least enough of us that the world’s problems are things not to solve — but to bicker over. It has made enough of us foolish and weak — more interested in status, power, greed, and hate, which is to say, obsessed with death, instead of fighting for life — that the world turning into a kind of gruesome dystopia is perfectly alright with us, as long as we come out on top. That’s reductionism.
(That might strike some of you — especially Americans — as baffling: “isn’t that just how people are?” Of course it’s not. People are not the strange and foolish machines of appetite capitalism makes them out to be. But that is how enough of us have been conditioned to see ourselves, to limit ourselves to being — and, crucially, that is what such people are now trying to limit everyone else to being, too. Do you see the link?)
So here we are as a world. Some of us say, we must do better, and come together to solve these great problems, in ways that transcend greed, spite, hate, all the narrow forms of self-interest. And others of us say — led by a weird coterie of American intellectuals and pundits, mostly — “No! That is forbidden! We are just machines of appetite! Nobody is allowed to be anything more than a profit-maximizing robot, an algorithm in human form, a pleasure-guided weapon of mass self-destruction!! That is the only kind of world we will let you have!”
That, my friends, is the true battle of now. It is between two kinds of people, ways of thinking, seeing, understanding. Between reductionists and expansionists. I’ve worked through the the (overly long) example of capitalism to illustrate for you one form of reductionism, so now let me go a little deeper.
The reductionists are those who wish to reduce human beings to predators and prey — that is their reductive view of all nature, and therefore, also human nature. All they see when they look at the world is what capitalism allows them to see: violence, competition, dominance, possession. They don’t look at the way the sunlit rain nourishes the sea, or the way a little elephant who has lost his mother grieves, or the way a dog protects an epileptic child from fits, and see something remarkable and beautiful — something improbably transcendent. They only see brutal conquest, shark and serpent devouring fish and fowl — because that is all capitalism has conditioned them to see. In other words, their view of nature is trivially false — nature competes and nourishes and nurtures, not just demolishes and destroys — how else could it live? — but they cannot see even that far.
(Hence, reductionists commit the same old intellectual mistake time and again, and “debate” it — they reduce everything to “nature versus nurture”, when it’s patently obvious that nature nurtures, and nurturing is nature, yet so is death, decay, and letting go — but I’ll come back to all that.)
The reductionists wish to reduce human beings, their societies, their morals, their norms, their values, everything, to one thing — the principle they see in nature, of predator consuming prey. Their moral law is that the strong should survive, and the weak perish — hence the inherent definition of “strong” is the one who has the sharpest teeth, the most ruthless and abusive and cruel — so the greater good is had.
Hence, they command — “you can never have any kind of society but one in which people are pure appetite! Anything else is forbidden!! You can’t have any other kind of system — not a polity, not a city, not a town, not an economy. That is all anyone is, or can be!” Everything in human life is reduced, in this way, to predation, to consumption, to exploitation, which is valorized as a triumphant, noble, worthy act. But is it? If “nature” isn’t that simple — are we?
Then there are the expansionists. They are those who wish to transcend the predatory logic above — with nurturance, care, gentleness, and concernWe realize ourselves not through harm, but through grace. They say, looking around at the world a little more carefully, just the opposite: “If we are to go on coexisting, surviving, prospering, then we must let this foolish idea go. Even animals are not just programmed things, algorithmic predators and prey. They groom and love and grieve and mourn, too. You see only that because that is all you can see. And that is all you can see because it is all that capitalism lets you see. Making everything a machine of appetite — beginning with ourselves — is a false and reductive view of nature, and assigning it to us is something we reject inherently. If that is the world we build — one where everything is mechanized appetite — then we are moral failures, intellectual bankrupts, and historical disgraces. We have not become our fullest, truest, selves this way.”
Now, the fact is that the reductionists are winning. The Jordan Petersons slash Steven Pinkers of the world, the “intellectual dark web” (LOL), “effective altruism”, American capitalism, and so on — what unifies all these painfully foolish ways of not-quite-thinking is the belief that people are just machines of appetite. The reductionist view is ascendant because in truth, is just another name for the same old ways of exploitation, violence, and inherited domination that underpinned feudalism, tribalism, and empire, too, and now undergird capitalism, too.
So the battle of now is really between two visions of nature, or the meaning of the relationship between us and the world. “Nature”, by which we purport to mean what is “natural” — but we are really saying something more like: what is true, genuine, real, and worthy about us? What is our rightful place here, in this world, in this absurd and strange position we find ourselves in, mortal, knowing, fragile, full of despair and love and mourning and laughter? What are we? “Nature” contains all that — and so it is a bigger question than we allow ourselves to really ask.
That is what I mean by the battle for control of your soul. “Capitalism” is only really then the latest ideological label in that battle, which is one as old as time — a battle over the place humankind holds, in its essence, its truth, its meaning and purpose here in the world. But I don’t want to reduce it to “Hobbes vs Locke!”, because its truth is subtler — and less Western than that. Even in the East, this battle over the nature of humankind has been fought, too, in just the same way, reduced or expanded.
I think you know, by now, which side I fall on. I am an expansionist — not a reductionist. And I am one not just because it’s obvious to see that reducing “nature”, which is a reductive idea to begin with, to brutality and predation is trivially, laughably false (have you never seen a monsoon?), but also because of the consequences of making such a foolish mistake. Are people just machines of appetite? What lies that way? A reversion to feuds, to tribes, which produce kings, which battle over empires, which means endless war and violence. If people are just machines of appetite, if the strong should survive, the weak perish, then the only moral principle is the satiation of the hungriest predator. Does anything but folly, ruin, and misery really lie in that direction — no matter how capitalism has conditioned to want to be above everyone else?
But if people aren’t just machines of appetite, damned and predestined to be mindless and blind things who are only here to harm and abuse and ravage as much as they can, laugh numbly, scream in self-revulsion, and then die — then what are they? Ah, you see. It’s a subtle, difficult question. I would say the answer is as simple and timeless as it is beautiful. Then they are free.
If you ask me, all that is the battle of now. It’s not about the world, politics, or even society, really. It’s about you. Your soul. Who you really are, and why you are here, and what you mean. Between reductionists and expansionists. For a truer kind of freedom — or for a dead past, confined by all the mechanisms of reduction, from the algorithm to the corporation, to stagnation and subjugation. The reductionists say, essentially, that only through violence do we realize ourselves. Fools throughout history have said that, haven’t they? But expansionists understand, I think, a truer truth. The grace and peace we find beside one another are the measures of the depth of us.

7 Different Types of Anger and the Hidden Causes Behind Each ~ Sherrie.

7 Different Types of Anger and the Hidden Causes Behind Each.

By Sherrie.

January 24th, 2019 

 

types of anger.

 

 

Anger is an interesting emotion which comes from many different places. Understanding the various types of anger helps you also harness this feeling.

Before you start being judgemental about anger, take pause for a moment. Anger isn’t a “sin”, but what we do with that anger is what we deem to be wrong. There are so many types of anger developed from various emotions and experiences. Depending on what life is throwing at us, anger could be a number of things.

Anger in its many forms

Without delving too deeply into religion, I will give an example. In Christianity, Christ became angry one notable time. He walked through a temple and tossed tables and kicked over stands. Why did he do this? Because he was appalled by the gambling and other “unholy” things he witnessed in a holy place.
Now, it’s not for me to say what’s good or bad, but this is an example of what I call “righteous” anger and a testimony to how anger in itself is not bad. Righteous anger, for example, is anger based on morals and beliefs, many times spiritually based, you see. There are many types of anger as well, as I have said before.
There are many types of anger, yes, and these types represent reasoning of some sort. While some anger is slow to form, others can be a rapid burst of seemingly uncontrollable rage. In this rage is where we see anger taking on negative action.
So, let’s examine the different types of anger and the causes behind them.

1. Moral or righteous anger

As I stated above in the example, there are such things as righteous anger. It’s also called moral angerbecause it comes from being upset when someone breaks rules.
If you have rules set in a household and someone in that household breaks these rules, you will experience righteous anger. This is because most rules come from beliefs. Unfortunately, some people use the defense that you think you’re better than everyone else. It’s a common defense, and usually, just a way to deflect their guilt.
Now, let me tell you a secret about righteous anger. There is a hidden meaning behind this feeling. It seems that when someone gets strict in their righteous anger, it could be their attempt at control.
The truth is, righteous anger can go too far and turn you into a controlling and manipulative individual. So, be careful with that flaming sword.

2. Behavioral anger

Of all types of anger, this one is the most volatile. Behavioral anger is usually so strong that it turns physical. Now, this doesn’t mean that this anger always causes injuries.
Sometimes individuals who use this type of anger may only throw things or punch walls. Unfortunately, sometimes this emotion does result in attacking other people, and can certainly cause injuries and even legal consequences.
There are a few hidden secrets about this type of anger. Behavioral anger can come from past trauma or neglect. Without proper upbringing, a person cannot learn to control their emotions correctly, and with trauma, behavioral anger may be the only way to deal with hurts experienced early in life.
While so dangerous, this anger can still be treated and channeled in the right direction.

3. Habitual anger

When you’ve been angry for so long, it can be hard to stop being angry. This is not a joke, it’s a real problem. Habitual anger is a perpetual state of unrest and dissatisfaction with pretty much everything and everyone. When you try to deal with those who exhibit types of anger such as this, they will most often get angrier.
The hidden aspect of this anger lies within the past and trickles down through the years. Although this type of anger may have been born early in life, it has grown, due to various negative experiences in the years following.
For instance, if you are in your 4os, like me, then you’ve had several decades to feed and grow this anger. if you’ve had issues with habitual anger, then by now, your life may be a walking nightmare. Sorry, the truth hurts….but the good news is, you can learn to heal from this too.

4. Self-harm

Yes, self-harm is more than just depression. The act of self-harm can actually be a form of anger against one’s self. When people cut their skin, they could be exhibiting anger for how they look or their own conditions. It’s a complicated matter to understand sometimes, but it’s a negative emotion which must be revealed.
The hidden aspects of self-harm can come from many places. Self-harm can come from past abuse, trauma, neglect and so on. It can also come from repeated disappointments and broken relationships.
Basically, instead of focusing anger outward, people who suffer from self-harm may focus these emotions on the person within.

5. Vengeance

One of the most common types of anger is vengeance or revenge anger. It’s a basic form of anger which has been around since the beginning of time. With this form of anger, there’s usually not a lot of premeditation, except for the plans of getting revenge which come along with the emotion.
To be honest, there is little-hidden meaning behind this type of anger. It is straightforward and to the ones who feel this emotion, it is pure in its intent. Those who exhibit vengeance feel the emotions and actions are warranted.

6. Passive-aggression

While this type of anger may seem harmless, it sometimes can do quite a bit of damage. It just doesn’t leave scars in the way you think. With passive aggressive anger, emotions tend to be pushed down for the most part.
There is resentment, sarcasm, and mockery, all hiding behind a façade. Because of their inability to express themselves in a healthy manner, those who suffer from passive-aggressive emotions will internalize what they really feel.
One hidden secret about this form of anger is that it’s said to come from childhood emotional abuse. Some children are taught to not express negative emotions, and so they grow up to think passive aggression is a logical way of dealing with problems.

7. Incidental anger

One form of anger that most people see as normal is incidental anger. The truth is, this is pretty much a normal reaction to certain situations of injustice. To have incidental anger is to witness something which should be changed and have the patience to address this in a healthy manner.
There are usually no hidden agendas or secrets where this type of anger is involved.

Dealing with the anger of all types

Different types of anger must be addressed in various ways. While some forms are easy to deal with, others can be dangerous. Sometimes even professional help will be needed when dealing with certain situations.
As I stated before, anger in itself is not a bad thing. It’s all depends on the actions and negative thought patterns that you choose to utilize when you lose your temper. For future references, learn more about what makes you angry and how you can deal with this anger in the right way.

Getting in Touch with Our Feelings ~ Steve Beckow

Getting in Touch with Our Feelings

By Steve Beckow, Golden Age of Gaia.

January 23, 2019. 

 
 

 

 
I think feelings have received less attention than they deserve from us in spirituality. We tend to focus more on our thoughts – our self-commands, conclusions, decisions, beliefs, etc. Our feelings often go unnoticed.
Getting in touch with our feelings is not taught in school or in most homes. Just as sexuality, communication, and parenting are not.
If I ask many people how they’re feeling, they may say, “I feel like….” But that isn’t actually a feeling. It’s a thought.
Or they may say: “I feel that….” That’s really not a feeling either. We mistake our thoughts for feelings quite commonly.
If I ask a person how they feel, often they cannot come up with a precise word for it.  They may not know where to look to find out how they feel.  (I’m equally out of touch, by the way.)
I may think of my feelings as the great army that supports me. But extreme emotion can also unhinge me and send me off in directions I wouldn’t ordinarily pursue.
I used to use strong emotion – primarily anger – to temporarily fuse back together again when I was dissociated (as the Humpty Dumpty Man). (1)
The answer is just to observe my feelings, to “be with” them, rather than indulging the extreme ones.
And that’s what I intend to do for the next while. Just observe the feelings that arise without acting on them. Feel into the being I am when strong feelings do and don’t blow across the inner landscape.
Just as the word “I” can refer to any of our bodies – physical body, ego, mind, Self, One – so the word “feelings” is used to refer to a wide range of phenomena.
Usually we use it to refer to our ordinary emotional states such as happiness, anger, jealousy, arrogance.
But it’s also often used to refer to the divine states.
What’s the difference? Well, the difference I’m most aware of is that our ordinary emotional states give way to the circumstances whereas the divine state of love transforms them. (2) It doesn’t yield to them. As long as we’re in it, it sweeps them away.
I won’t be referring here to the feeling of love but to the divine state of love (or perhaps “Love”).
It took me six weeks of a three-month encounter group to realize that I was out of touch with my feelings. And when I did, I ran down the trail, shouting at the top of my lungs, in awe and wonder, “I’m out of touch with my feelings!!!!”
Being in touch with my feelings – recognizing them, flowing with them –  is a very desirable state. (3)  It’s a doorway into the divine states. When we’re in touch with them, it’s easy to feel love and bliss arise; when we’re not in touch with them, we seldom notice the wisps of love and bliss that are there just waiting to expand upon our recognition of them.
Footnotes
(1) See “Putting Humpty Together Again – Part 1/3,” 
(2) This is so in two ways. In the first place, the inner tsunami of love strips away all impurity from us as if it were the wind scattering leaves.
In the second place, after the tsunami of love left me in an Ocean of Love, the divine state prevented negative feelings from coming anywhere near me, like a protective or insulating barrier.
(3) The experiential domain is more refined than the intellectual domain. Immediate experience is more of a motivator than thoughts. Being in touch with our feelings places us in the latter domain. Either it leads to or is co-existent with conscious awareness.

Believe in yourself as you move forward ~ Angel Wisdom, Sharon Taphorn


Trust.

Believe in yourself as you move forward.

Angel Wisdom with Sharon Taphorn

January 24, 2019

 
 
.
 
 
 


 
Things are not always as they seem when you are navigating the world of the physical. Stay true to your inner knowing, what you know to feel right and true, and you will be doing just fine. 
There is always a level of trust when you leap forward into the unknown, but your thoughts and feelings are the best tools to use to assure a safe landing.

Blessings are all around you when you choose to look, as are sorrows, so choose wisely where you hold those thoughts and feelings, and you will see a great difference in your creation process.
 
Thought for today: Raise your thoughts and feelings to the higher vibration of joy, abundance, and alignment. Trust in the knowing that so much more is to come.    
 
And so it is.

 
You are dearly loved and supported always, the angels.


 
Thank you, Mahalo, Merci, Gracias, Vielen Dank, Grazie, Спасибо, Obrigado, 谢谢, Dank, 謝謝, Chokran,Děkuji

Too Late to Change ~ Arcturians, Suzanne Lie

Too Late to Change.

 

Message From the Arcturians.

Through Suzanne Lie.

January 23, 2018. 

 
.

 

 

Dear Ascending Ones,
 
Today, we wish to remind you not to allow anything or anyone to diminish you or make you feel less about yourself! Some people may be intimidated by your Higher Dimensional SELF. In this case, that person could become angry when they are confronted with anyone that needs assistance.

Please remember that each person has their own issues which frighten them. Therefore, one could become angry when frightened by messages that they do not yet feel ready to address. One who is not ready to face the truth about what is happening in their daily life and/or in their country may be frightened by the challenges before them, and they may “take their fear” out on others.  
 
 
When a leader does NOT send out unconditional caring and higher dimensional self-confidence, it is more difficult for those who are threatened by that leader's decisions, and it is more difficult for those who work under, and/or are led by that being, to feel secure.
 
Leaders who send confidence, kindness, and hope to those whom they lead may sometimes be replaced by leaders who “take out their own insecurity and hidden fear” on the ones who they are supposed to be leading.
 
However assured a “selfish and unfair” leader may appear, the truth is that they know how they feel, and live in constant fear that others will realize how worried they are that their fear will be revealed.  Therefore, these types of leaders rule others via the very fear that lives within their own heart and mind.

However, these “lost leaders,” as we the Arcturians call them, will eventually have to face their own fear, as well as the great damage that their fearful leadership has created. Unfortunately, leaders who lead via their own fear, poor self-esteem and lack of confidence, usually “ACT” as if they are not afraid, and seem to love themselves in a very narcissistic manner, while they constantly find fault in those whom they should be guiding and protecting.
 
 
Therefore, these “leaders” must keep their “opened door to fear” closed to the vision of others, while they try to face that fear alone.  Whenever a “lost leader” needs the strength and wisdom that a good leader lovingly and consistently offers, they often choose to insult, degrade or frighten those whom they should be leading with strength, courage and loving confidence. 
 
One can only give to others what they have within themselves. Therefore, in order to send love, confidence, dignity and hope to those whom they lead, that lost leader must first have those attributes within themselves.  
 
It takes a great deal of courage to lead others by speaking the truth in a positive and courageous manner. Therefore, a leader must be positive within their own thinking and, most importantly, remember that in order to be positive within themselves, they will need to have love and respect FOR yourself.
 
Others may not know about a lost leader's struggle to maintain self-confidence for themselves and to be able to maintain a positive and courageous outlook for themselves and for those that they lead. Being a good leader is not just a gift. Being a good leader is something that a person has thought about from their youth and have taken responsibility for “being a good leader” at a young age.
 
A good leader, must always remember that FIRST, they must lead themselves. They also must remember to be conscious of their own thoughts and emotions because, “What they THINK about, they BRING about. 
 
Please remember that anger hides just below fear and anxiety. However, if that fear and anxiety is unknown to the leader, they will unconsciously hide that secret from themselves and use anger and judgment of others in their leadership. 
 
It is in this manner that the lost leader attempts to deflect their own fear into the hearts and minds of those whom they are leading. This behavior is like a doctor that gives the patient that which will make them more sick, rather than giving their patient that which would heal them.
 
Unfortunately, those who have lived in the shadow of "power over others, greed, and hidden insecurity" for most of their lives, see their negative behavior as being positive because it gets them what they think they want.
 
However, ALL humans want LOVE. But some lost leaders have become so lost in themselves, that they cannot see outside of themselves, or perceive themselves in the same manner that others perceive them. Fortunately for these lost leaders, there are always other lost ones who are ready to perceive the lost leader as a good leader.

These lost leaders do not see themselves as having the selfish, “me first” manner that others perceive them as having. In fact, lost leaders seldom see any of their shortcomings, as these kinds of leaders only perceive what they want to perceive. 
 
 
On the other hand, those who live via “power within” instead of “power over,” send out the love and respect they have gained for themselves. A lost leader's fear can interact with others in any moment that the lost leader feels threatened, which is very often.

Therefore, when others need their assistance, the lost ones cannot take the time to understand why others come to them to gain that which they cannot even give to themselves. 
 
 
Since these lost leaders cannot be honest with themselves or with their reactions to challenges, they get angry that they are being called on to leave their safe, protected illusions in order to be bothered by thinking about, and caring for, others.
 
Of course, these lost leaders are unable to notice that they are the source of their own fear, as facing their fear is something that they will do anything to avoid. If it harms others, they don’t care because they ONLY care about their own unsolvable problem of chronic UNHAPPINESS.
 
However, if they can find a way to make others “unhappy,” then they can pretend to be the hero and rescue them from the very problem that the “rescuer” created.
 
The lost leaders may try to lie to themselves that they are really trying to be a good person and do the right thing, but they constantly wonder why they feel so frightened, angry and alone. Yes, yes, it is the fault of others that they feel this way. Therefore, they never need to look at themselves and can always blame their “problems” on others.

One of the biggest problems for lost leaders is those who live via Love, Power Within, Caring for Others and constantly consulting their own Higher SELF. Why do these people seem to somehow be happy, be in love, have good friends and a sense of Inner Peace and SELF-confidence.
 
 
“HAH,” say the lost leaders. “Who needs love and friends and confidence and inner peace, when I can have MONEY AND POWER OVER OTHERS?”
 
When these lost ones “stand before their maker” perhaps they will get the answer to that question,

BUT, then it will be "too late to change!"
The Arcturians

As Being, as pure Consciousness, there are no needs. ~ Jesus via John Smallman, 2018/12/21

As Being, as pure Consciousness, there are no needs.  

 Jesus (Isa) via John Smallman

 

December 21st, 2018 

 

 

 
 


 

 
As you wait expectantly for the dramatic shift in personal feeling experiences, and in outside events, to demonstrate absolutely conclusively for you that awakening is occurring in this now moment, be cheerful and spontaneous as you go most positively and hopefully about your daily human lives.  You know, deep within yourselves, that the tipping point has been reached, and that the human collective is awakening rapidly and most enthusiastically, despite all the negative mainstream media news reporting which is most definitely suggesting otherwise.  Your awakening, as you have so often been told, is a done deal!
There is no going back, and increasing joy and wonder lies before you because you are opening to your natural human state of being – Christ Consciousness – the divine state from which you can and will operate consciously and lovingly in each and every moment.  You have been heading back towards this, your completely natural state, since the moment that your sense of separation from your Source filled you with fear.  This is because your Source, the divine field of Consciousness, Love – or, if you wish to personalize It, Mother/Father/God – in Its infinite Love and Wisdom wills for you nothing but everlasting Joy, andthus set up the plan for your reawakening into eternal life as soon as you entered into the unreal state that you are experiencing as separation.  And the divine Will is always achieved.  No other outcome is remotely possible.
So, dear readers and listeners, as the awakening process becomes firmly established, and the essential changes that result become increasingly apparent to all of humanity, make a point of shining your light on high.  You are all intensely bright beings – as all sentient beings, all humans are – and by choosing to shine brightly in every moment you are extremely effective in assisting and encouraging others to become aware that they too are beings of light, brilliant beings of light.  How could you not be, since you were created perfect, and all that is created is, by definition, perfect in every way?
Let go of your fears and doubts, the anxieties that dissuade you from sharing the truth of who you are.  All that you have to do is be yourselves!  Not the personalities that you donned as masks when you were small children growing up, and seemingly found yourselves inadequate and even worthless compared to the adults and authority figures with whom you had to interact; even compared with your elder siblings!  Many of you feel that you have no one with whom to discuss your true feelings about the meaning of life, of your life, of who you truly are.  And the reason for this is because everyone you know or meet is hiding behind their own fear-formed mask or persona.  And you mostly accept those disguises as who they truly are, because in their apparent confidence or certainty in that disguise, they successfully hide from others their own intense sense of inadequacy.  So many of you feel “less than,” and this sense is encouraged by your egos to keep you in fear, because it confirms your sense of separateness and also your need for a clever and intelligent ego, your apparent human identity, to keep you safe.
When you choose to be yourselves, and show that self fearlessly to others, it frees them to do likewise, often with an enormous sense of relief, as they realise that they are not the only ones suffering from a sense of “less than.”  Being yourselves is truly THE most loving and effective gift that you can offer to others.  Then they feel safe in your presence, accepted, seen, and honored for themselves, just as they are, unconditionally.  And that, as you can most surely understand, is the most precious thing you can give to anyone, because it is what you yourselves have been seeking all your lives.
All humans are, as you have been told so often, perfect divine beings experiencing severe limitation in form as humans.  And that experience of limitation has indeed convinced you that you are separate beings in form, as you struggle to survive in an environment that seems vast in comparison to the size of your seemingly small and insignificant human bodies with which you mostly completely identify.  No wonder you are fearful!
But, in truth, you are immensely powerful beings because Source imbued you with everything that is Source at the moment of your creation.  It could do nothing else because Source is everything, constantly creating Itself in myriad ways as It most willingly shares with Its creation the infinite joy of just being.  As Being, as pure Consciousness, there are no needs, because that is an infinitely uplifting and satisfying state of existence, it is the only state of existence!
Some of you have experienced a brief sense of this, when your thinking has momentarily ceased, and you find yourselves enraptured by beauty in one of the many forms in which it shows itself to you while you are experiencing life as a human – a brilliant and stunning sunset, the intense freshness of spring growth, clear snowy mountains, the beauty of a child or loved one.  It doesn’t last, because the energy of such an experience is far too intense for your human frames to live through for more than a moment without disintegrating.
Love, Source, Mother/Father/God, Consciousness, Presence, is All that exists, isinfinitely vast and is infinitely gentle.  All sentient life is most lovingly enfolded in the Divine Field, always.  Anything that is experienced that is not of Love is unreal and will not last.
However, as humans in form, you do experience time.  Time, although in your present age measured by atomic clocks and collectively agreed upon, is an illusion.  It is an illusion that you all, without exception, have experienced when something you enjoy is gone in an instant, or something that causes you suffering appears to linger interminably.  You do have to deal with it constantly in order to come together physically at agreed places to interact with one another.  But, when you are not using it for this purpose, make the intent to be present in the now moment, the only real time, the time in which everything that you ever experience actually occurs.
The easiest and most effective way to enter into this state is through making the intent to quieten your minds, and to arrest the flow of thoughts by allowing them to flow through your minds without engaging with them.  This does take practice, and you need to practice daily.  Therefore, go within, to your holy inner sanctuary, and intend to open your hearts to the divine Embrace awaiting you there.  Choose to sit there in silent meditation, contemplation, or as you create a sound such as aum that you focus on by humming or singing, thus shutting out the distractions that tend to withdraw you from that place of deep peace.  That place of deep peace is always within you, so learn to find it through regular practice, and delight in the peace and joy that it brings you.
With so very much love, Saul.

Terence McKenna Explains Why Television is the Most Dangerous Addictive Drug in Society ~ Dylan Charles

Terence McKenna Explains Why Television is the Most Dangerous Addictive Drug in Society.

By Dylan CharlesWaking Times.

January 24, 2019. 

 
.

 

 

So much insanity is being broadcast into our society that people are beginning to crack and turn on each other. Just this week we saw how the mainstream media nearly instigated angry leftist mob lynchings by misrepresenting a confrontation between some Catholic high school kids and a Native American elder. Just a few days prior to that, those on the politically right side of the aisle were in a frenzy of outrage over the contents of a men’s razor blade commercial.
People have become totally obsessed with their own beliefs, opinions and biases that their behavior is going completely unexamined. Their reactions to the latest news item are automatic and predictable. The late iconoclast Terence McKenna pointed out that obsessive and unexamined behavior in pursuit of familiar stimulus (such as what we see with each moment of media outrage) is what drug addiction is about.
McKenna went a step further to say that television was the greatest drug ever introduced into society. What else could persuade people spend an average of 5-7 hours a day sitting in front of the TV? All the while consuming, in hypnotic states of mind, the scientifically crafted messages of corporate and government propagandists?

READ: TERENCE MCKENNA’S EXPLANATION OF WHY OUR CULTURE IS KILLING ITSELF

Here, McKenna expounds on the idea that television is a drug that is having negative consequences on individuals and on society at large:
“Unexamined behavior is what is alarming about drug addiction, that people behave like they are obsessed. Well on that scale, then, the most powerful drug of the late 20th century is television and propaganda. And the way in which we consume propaganda is amazing. I mean the most intelligent of us, the ones who hold ourselves most aloof, are probably junkies through and through when it comes to the media.” ~Terence McKenna
He goes on to talk about how being able to see violence on tv has changed the nature of warfare, and that if we are to watch violence, we need to see real footage of it, rather than theatrical violence so that we can understand that we have a responsibility in creating a world in which war and violence is so prevalent.
Here he explains how similar watching television is to consuming a drug:
“In fact it is shaping our value systems in ways that are very hard for us to suspect or even detect. I mean television, for example, it’s a drug. It has a series of measurable physiological parameters that are as intrinsically its signature as are teh parameters of heroin or its signature. You sit someone down in front of a TV set and turn it on. Twenty minutes later come back, sample their blood pressure, their eye movement rate, blood is pooling in their rear end, their breathing takes on a certain quality, the stare reflex sets in. They are thoroughly zoned on a drug.” ~Terence McKenna
Here he talks a bit more about the nature of addiction, tv, and our true purpose on this planet as human beings.

 

What do you think? Is television and mass media making people crazy?

Collect those Gems and Store your Treasures. ~ Uteah, Chris Maurus.

The Salvation of Urantia.

Trinity Teacher Uteah (U-tee-ah).

Received by Chris Maurus.

Asheville, NC, USA, January 6, 2019.




 
 

Teacher Uteah: “Today, my dear students, we shall explore our feelings at the soul level of our being and I shall lead you to discover those deep heart-felt thoughts and feelings that are present within you, but are sometimes buried behind the wounds of your temporal existence. Living on a world like Urantia, at the present time, it can be difficult to maintain a peaceful loving outlook when many are having to struggle just to survive. Many are themselves dealing with the dysfunction of relationships that are also suffering from a disconnect with their souls stemming from a similar disparity. Let me guide you back to a place where your love of life still exists and where compassion and mercy lives within you. Let us consider the common ground of all humanity and you will see that you are not so different from one another. 
 
“Understand that you were born in a world of confusion where little information is given about the soul life of a human — it is only available to you when you look for it. It is not something that is taught to you from birth or in your education systems. You must construct this soul-life from the pieces of your experiences here that touch your soul in times when you and others have discovered a common exchange of Truth, Beauty, and Goodness (TBG). These can be rare exchanges in a human life or they can be abundant — it depends on many things and conditions and personality traits. It is not your fault or your ignorance of such things, but your awareness to the feelings that you have when an experience reaches into that deep place within you. What you do with that experience and how you ‘file it away’ in your soul can make all the difference on how you use that experience when living in your world. 
 
“Become aware in these moments of TBG when they touch you and learn how to incorporate those experiences into your personality as a reflection of the agency of the Indwelling Spirit — the Thought Adjuster. When you discover that you can have an actual relationship with this Indwelling Spirit of the Father, you can share these moments of TBG within and take note that these unique experiences and exchanges with your fellows, that matter, are something worth keeping for eternity. When you begin to build a library of soul-worthy experiences like this they become the values that you reflect out into the world and in the relationships you build with others. You shall soon begin to notice that you attract more of these deep soul-touching experiences the more you become aware of them. 
 
“Recognition of these values is a very important part of soul and personality growth. Take pause in those moments when something extraordinary happens when you ‘feel something’ and share that ‘something’ with your Higher Self. Let it sink deep within you and recognize the value it has. Experiment with how you may attract more of these special moments by reflecting these values out into your world and in your relationships — the TBG of those things that have touched you deeply. 
 
“Start collecting these gems throughout your life, my dear students, and you will have a much richer and more exciting life — even here in one of the most challenging places to live. The paradox here is that the opportunity for having these deep reaching soul defining experiences are more abundant on Urantia than on many worlds in the universes of time. Take pause to consider when you have just collected a gem and hold it up to the sun and let the light shine through it into your naked eye — see the glistening beauty in it and then hold it close and show it to others that they may also want to collect such a gem and cherish it. 
 
“Collect those gems and store your treasures, for they shall serve you well here and hereafter. 
 
“Peace and love to you, 
“I AM Uteah.”

Fascist 4th Reich collapsing as roundup of war criminals continues ~ Benjamin Fulford.

Fascist 4th Reich collapsing as roundup of war criminals continues.

By Benjamin Fulford.

Posted January 24, 2019 by Edward Morgan. 

 
.

 

 

The removal of Fuhrer George Bush Sr. has exposed a new layer of mass-murdering fascists in the U.S. and Japan to arrest or sudden death as the war against the satanic Khazarian mafia rages on.
In Japan, fascist Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his regime are headed for war crimes tribunals.  As a start, French police have charged Tsunekazu Takeda, head of the Japan Olympic Committee, with corruption.  This is only the beginning of his legal troubles.  Takeda is the son of Prince Tsuneyoshi Takeda, a cousin of Emperor Hirohito who was responsible for setting up the notorious germ warfare Unit 731, according to U.S. military police sources in Japan.  The Abe regime has also been caught trying to set up their own bioweapons lab disguised as a veterinarian college, the sources say.
Also, the projected costs of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics have tripled to over $30 billion to pay bribes to gangsters and politicians, the sources say.  One of the main ways this money is being laundered is by having government officials tell gangsters where Olympic venues will be built so they can buy up the land and sell it to the government at a huge markup, Japanese gangster sources say.  The money thus generated is divided between the corrupt politicians and the gangsters.  Other money goes to Olympic “security,” or payments to gangsters for “guard services,” the sources say.
This is to replace the funds they have been embezzling from the so-called Fukushima “cleanup.”  Any journalist who actually goes to Fukushima with their own Geiger counter is forced to admit there is very little radiation.  The money allocated for the “cleanup” is put into dumpsters and transported back to Tokyo for bribes, the sources say.  Abe and his group need to go to jail or hell ASAP.
In the U.S., meanwhile, it turns out that special prosecutor Robert Mueller is the son of Gestapo Chief Heinrich Mueller, according to CIA sources.  While the crimes of the father are not the crimes of the son, Robert Mueller is going to be indicted for his involvement in the 9/11 cover-up as well as for his participation in the ongoing fake Russian witch-hunt in the U.S., the sources say.

It is interesting to note in this context that the top political leaders attending this year’s fascist-run World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland are Shinzo Abe and German Chancellor (and Hitler’s daughter) Angela Merkel, respective heads of the fascist allies of World War II.  Meanwhile, the heads of countries that fought against the fascists, British Prime Minister Theresa May, French President Emmanuel Macron, U.S. President Donald Trump, Chinese President Xi Jinping, Russian President Vladimir Putin, and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, are all boycotting Davos.  A slew of business leaders are also cancelling their appearances there, as they did for last October’s Saudi “Davos in the Desert.”  This is no coincidence, Pentagon sources say.
Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) sources say, “The U.S. military, along with the Chinese and Russians, took over all of the Global Accounts including the Vatican and Federal Reserve accounts, to effectively start …
… triggering the Global Currency Reset.”  The first part of this will involve paying off “Tier One” account holders, the sources say.  “Tier One are the account owners and certain key sovereigns who practically will be paid off to ‘move out of the way’ and stop interfering or delaying the global reset process.  Basically, this is karma coming full circle.  It means that the offer made to the Vatican, Fed, Jesuits, etc. is to either take gold or lead [bribe or death],” one source says.
The rest of the financial reset is still being debated, but there is a broad agreement to set up a Western future planning agency to work in harmony with the Chinese One Belt One Road (OBOR) project, European royal family sources say.  It will have an initial budget of around $300 billion, they say.  Also, China has agreed to buy $1 trillion worth of U.S. exports in order to stop the drain of jobs and money from the U.S. economy, various sources agree.
One visible sign of this reset is the fact that a bill has been introduced in the U.S. Congress to remove the U.S. from the United Nations and boot the UN out of the U.S.  Remember, the UN is a privately owned corporation and not genuinely representative of the people of the world.  The healthy parts of the UN will be taken over by a replacement for the UN that will be headquartered in Asia—possibly Laos, according to Asian secret society sources.

A cleanup of the UN has also begun with an investigation of corruption at the WHO (World Harm Organization) involving the misuse of Ebola funds to do things like pay for a girlfriend’s travel expenses.  The WHO is also being accused of rampant racism and sexism.  As these investigations proceed, the world will learn about their role in faking or actually causing pandemics to promote vaccine campaigns and pharmaceutical sales in exchange for payoffs.

The summit between Trump and North Korean strongman Kim Jong Un is planned for late February after the Asian lunar New Year holidays, and will probably deal with the financial reset and issues like the fascist regime in Japan and Korean reunification, Pentagon and Asian secret society sources say.
The cleanup of the satanic cabal in the West should be near completion by the time the summit takes place, the sources say.  In the U.S., in particular, the shutdown of the government is paving the way for a major purge.  “After the shutdown passes 30 days, Trump can fire federal employees in oppressive agencies like the TSA, IRS, corrupt ones like the FBI, DOJ, CIA, State Department, and Deep State operatives or Senior Executive Service (SES) mandarins installed by [former U.S. President Barack] Obama,” Pentagon sources note.
Also, “with Federal courts running out of funds on January 18th, military tribunals can begin in earnest,” the sources note.
Furthermore, the purge of the U.S. government continues with Congressman Tom Marino quitting just after re-election because of his involvement in the opioid crisis now raging in the U.S., the sources note.
Plus, the reformed FBI has started probing foreign corruption in Congress, they say.  This has already started to bear fruit in the form of the cancellation of various COngressional DELegations (CODELs), “starting with the trip of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan,” the sources say.
“Apparently the CODEL was to take orders and bribes from globalists in Brussels, stir up the Muslim brotherhood in Egypt and back door into Israel via the Sinai, and prolong drug trafficking in Afghanistan,” the sources say.
The trip to Israel was meant to provide bribes to the CODEL so they could fight to protect U.S. transfer payments to Israel and protect satan-worshiping Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.  Fortunately, the bribes could not be paid and now the Israelis are finally moving to indict their crime minister.  According to Israeli press reports, Israel’s attorney general Avichai Mendelblit will recommend indicting Netanyahu next month.

Meanwhile, the losers gathering in Davos this week can contemplate their failures both in the service of humanity and in the protection of the environment.  A report last week by the Institute of International Finance shows that their Babylonian debt slavery system has put a 318% debt-to-GPD burden of $244 trillion on humanity.  All of this while 46% of the world’s people live on less than $5.50 a day, and the richest 6 people own as much as the poorest 50%.

And of course, while the super-rich steal from the rest of us, the poorest of the poor are forced to steal from nature, resulting in what is becoming the worst extinction event in the history of this planet.  Enough is enough.

A Vision for Humanity ~ Alignment Project

A Vision for Humanity.

The Vision Alignment Project

 

It is our Intention that we are seeing Humanity in its Highest Light. Accordingly, we intend and envision a world where our children, no matter where they live, are nurtured and cared for as if they were the most precious gems on the planet - for, indeed, they are;

where the elderly are treated with dignity and the honoring they deserve as their right of birth in this world;

where the sick are comforted and healed, the discouraged find new heart, the downtrodden find new strength, the lonely are befriended, and the lost find their way home;

where our leaders are true leaders, worthy of their position, where our teachers prepare others to respect all of life; and where our businesspeople, everywhere, have taken a stand, firm and strong, for the Highest Good;

where soldiers and fighters are a thing of the past because all of Humanity has finally, without any equivocation whatsoever, seen that fighting and violence have never given them the results they were looking for.

We see a world where all debt has been forgiven and we have started over with a new system of exchange that insures equality and a high standard of living for all people everywhere;

and where, as true stewards of the Earth, we have risen up and out of our old ways into the light of a new day where people - each and every one of us - is helping, honoring, loving, and caring, deeply, for everyone else.

That is our Intention, for the Highest Good of All!

What Is Agitated Depression and What Are Its Symptoms and Treatment Options

What Is Agitated Depression and What Are Its Symptoms and Treatment Options.

By Valerie.

January 23rd, 2019. 

 

agitated depression.

 

 

Agitated depression falls under the umbrella of the depression diagnosis. It is a form of depression where the individual is often agitated, restless and angry often.

In the past, agitated depression was known as “melancholia agitata”, but is now referred to as “mixed mania” or “mixed features”.
Agitated depression is often seen in people who are middle-aged and elderly. Younger populations tend to have more melancholic and sad features of depression. However, agitated depression can affect any person.

What Is Agitation?

Being agitated or feeling agitation can manifest in different ways. A person who is agitated will feel a severe sense of uneasiness. He or she may find it difficult to control this restlessness and uneasiness. As a result, they feel discomfort.
There is an inner restlessness that cannot be explained or controlled by the individual. When people are uncomfortable, they tend to have a short temper, uncooperative, and lash out at others.
Being agitated interferes with one’s work and social life. In worse case scenarios, they will hurt others or hurt themselves.

Symptoms of Agitated Depression

In order to be diagnosed with agitated depression, one must experience a depressive episode. Being agitated or irritable is a prominent symptom in agitated depression. A person may be described as “short-tempered”. He or she may “snap” at family or friends easily. Small things tend to annoy them.
A person with agitated depression will have outbursts and poor impulse control. This individual will be easily upset or angered whether they are big or small problems. Controlling their reactions and emotions are harder when having agitated depression.

BFRBs

Hair pulling, nail biting and skin picking are common symptoms of agitated depression. Nail biting and skin picking fall under the umbrella of body-focused repetitive behaviors (BFRBs).
Skin picking
Skin picking is known as excoriation in the medical field. This occurs when a person repetitively picks, rubs, scratches, or digs at his or her own skin. Some people pick at their skin as a form of relief with agitated depression.
This act can be relieving to the person who is currently uncomfortable or agitated. It may also be a way to distract their thoughts. However, picking at one’s skin can result in skin discoloration, scarring, and damage to the skin.
Nail biting
Excessive nail biting over time causes damage to one’s fingernails. Nail biting can also cause dental issues, mouth injuries, and infections.
This is because nail biting has the ability to open the skin. From there, numerous bacteria on a person’s hands can travel into to their mouth, and open cuts on the fingers. As a result, infections and viruses can get into the body.
Hair pulling (trichotillomania)
Hair pulling (trichotillomania) is when a person repetitively pulls out hair from their scalp, eyelashes, eyebrows and other body areas. Like with nail biting and skin picking, pulling out hair causes a sense of pleasure and relief to the individual.
On the other hand, pulling out hair can cause permanent damage and scarring. As a result, the hairs will not grow back and can hinder one’s social and work functioning. If a person becomes agitated, they may consciously or automatically start to pick at their skin, bite their nails, or pull out hairs.

In addition, an individual must have two or more of the following symptoms:

Motor agitation
Motor agitation, such as fidgeting, hand-wringing, pacing, etc. is a common symptom found in agitated depression. These actions give the individual a sense of relief, calming, and distraction from their agitation.
Psychic agitation
Psychic agitation or intense inner tension is described as internal conflict or inability to provide relief to oneself. This can manifest in a number of ways, such as irritability, anger, outbursts, excitement, and mania.
Racing thoughts
Racing or crowded thoughts are a common symptom. One’s thoughts will be simple thoughts or ruminating thoughts on the events of the past or present. They can be good or bad, and whatever comes to the person’s mind.
The individual experiencing this will find it hard to control or stop their thoughts from coming up in their consciousness. Because of this, it can be difficult concentrating at school or work.
Falling asleep may also be hard because of incessant thoughts and worries. They may also have a hard time making everyday decisions.

Bipolar Disorder

Agitated depression is commonly seen in people diagnosed with bipolar disorder, but it can also be seen in people who have a major depressive disorder.
In bipolar disorder, agitated depression is seen during the hypomanic state. Hypomania is a symptom seen in the bipolar II diagnosis, where the individual does not reach a full, manic episode. During this time, the individual will experience heightened irritability and will be easily distracted and unable to control their racing thoughts.

Depressive Disorder

Symptoms of agitated depression in major depressive disorder tend to be around not being able to calm oneself down. This individual will pace wring his or her hands, and have difficulty sitting still.
Stress can be a trigger that causes agitation symptoms to appear. Trauma and reminders of a traumatic event are also a trigger for agitated depression.

Treatment

Recognizing the signs of agitation is a good first step in treatment. When a person can recognize the signs, they can take steps to manage the feelings in a healthy manner. Agitated depression can be treated in a number of ways.

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy is a common treatment for agitated depression and its symptoms. Common psychotherapy interventions include cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness. Often times, psychotherapy and medication are combined as a way to treat agitated depression.

Medication

Medication is another treatment option for agitated depression. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and mood stabilizers have been effective in helping to alleviate agitated depression symptoms.
SSRIs and mood stabilizers have also been shown to work well with the agitation symptoms experienced during depressive episodes. They also help to alleviate other symptoms, such as anxiety, panic disorder symptoms, mania, and PTSD related symptoms.
The downside of SSRIs is they can take 4 to 6 weeks to feel a therapeutic response. This can cause frustration in patients as they look for faster relief from their agitated depression.

Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT)

Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is another treatment option for agitated depression. ECT involves administering electrical stimulation to the brain. These electrical currents cause small, brief seizures.
Before undergoing ECT, the patient is given anesthesia and muscle relaxer before the procedure. This procedure is usually used after other treatment options have been used.  If the other treatments have been ineffective, ECT is an option.
Agitated depression is a type of depression that can affect a person’s overall quality and happiness in life. Those diagnosed face a number of daily challenges, as well as a higher risk for self-harming and suicidal thoughts and behaviors.
With proper care and treatment, agitated depression can be managed and significantly improve a person’s quality of life in many aspects.

Cmdr. Lyur Sit Rep ~ January 2019 ~ Jean Michel

Cmdr. Lyur Sit Rep.

Jean Michel Surmely.

January 2019. 

.


Hello to all this is the Captain, Cmdr. Lyur. January 2019.
I will make a short 'Sit Rep' as a text this time.
You may have heard the events unfolding in France and Europe (other countries are starting also the yellow vest thing) Very shortly -more will come in videos in my channel Golden Starseed Report – my current feeling – and guidance – at this time is that we are witnessing an awakening of humans who want to liberate themselves from the dominion. It is very well explained by David Icke, please watch as many of his videos as you can, and he is talking about a 'Vibration of Truth' rising on planet Earth at this time. I agree... Naturally the elite do NOT agree and are trying to put it down, with little success see videos below.
Last attempt of the Archons to control humans with savage repression worthy of the darkest hours of Europe in the 1930's and 1940's:
 

With many casualties – 3000 wounded, 98 mutilated for life, 17 young boys and girls lost an eye and 4 had a hand exploded in shreds, 64 volontary shots at the head while this is forbidden to police to do so, and many arrested and even condemned to prison just because of manifesting in the streets – this movment for freedom continues and is growing by the day. You can see in one of the videos above the tarot card published by the Rothschild's magazine The Economist in 2017, showing already the yelow vest movment, as it seems. Please understand that this movment is a grass root thing with very good people and pure hearts trying to change the whole picture on Earth and abolish the 'system' of control. So the elite knew in advance, and they are trying to manipulate and control this movment for freedom and truth, again with little success. You will understand by watching this lecture here :
Quantum computers as explained by the C.E.O of the company building them, a totally psychotic guy :
 

These computers are fully in use nowadays by gougoule, fakebook and the like.
So Quantum computers travel in time. If this technology is out for the public (sic!) now you'd better believe they are in the hands of the elite since a long time, to help them register tendancies in the time line (are they so stupid to believe there is only one time line? See stories about the Montauk Experiment) and so to be able to change events along the time line, even to built a fake time line to suit their nefarious plans. All this is explained in my series of videos on the fake time line. Please watch all videos and share, make them known, they have very little hits :
 

yes there are 10 parts, please watch them all and share all the way to the last one :
 

I explain in my videos about the Universal Law of Free Will that states that you cannot control or take any life forms as slaves without the consent ot these. Humans have consented to this for a long time thru many systems, the religious system being one of the best, but now it is required, by 'higher laws' that humans at this time have to be fully conscious and vote specifically to accept to be slaves of the Archons. (explanations about the Archons are found in great details in David Icke's videos)
Such vote was given in France in 2017 – since the so-called elected president was known as a Rothschild agent and designated at the Bilberberg meeting of 2014 – But now a good number of people in France are taking back this consent and want to be free.
Please remember that the Archons and their puppets hybrids, know this law very well and have to apply it as well.
A very important point here : our Inter-Galactic Fleet of the Galactic Confederation of Free Worlds cannot – and will not – intervene without the Law of Free Will fully applied on Earth. This means that humans of Earth have to choose freedom and higher consciousness, or to agree to remain – this publically stated now – slaves of the Archons. This will be concluded by the separation of the worlds (christians call it the separation of the wheat from the schaff) and a % of humans could then move into the 5th dimension with the planet. Please watch my video :
 

I will conclude by now this little Sit Rep (situation report). At this time I need help to make known my YouTube channel Golden Starseed Report as much as possible.
I also need support for this in green energy, first to be able to buy a better camera that could have a good microphone plugged to it – my first price Canon camera cannot do, that explains interferences in the sound from wind and such -. I also need at this time help to get another better used car, mine is too old and going too much in repairs now. You can provide help with my Paypal account :martineindigo144@orange.fr or by snail mail with a bank check, or with Western Union, in that case I will receive a code to my mail ulve144@gmail.com and I can get money in any Post office near by me. Address to use : 
Jean Michel Surmely,
7 rue du Pountarrou, 11140 Artigues, FRANCE.
 
Bless the Universe in each of you. See you in my channel Golden starseed Report !
Golden Love. Captain.
