“Our findings indicate the fundamental processes behind the emergence of scaling in modern cities have structured human settlement organization throughout human history, and that contemporary urban systems are best-conceived as lying on a continuum with the smaller-scale settlement systems known from historical and archaeological research.”

What we found here is that the fundamental drivers of robust socioeconomic patterns in modern cities precede all that.”

Tom Shroder, AlterNetIn the past decade, after thirty years in the deep freeze, research into the medicinal use of psychedelic drugs, ranging from psilocybin to Ketamine, and from MDMA to LSD, has begun to accelerate. FDA-approved pilot studies and clinical trials using the drugs under controlled conditions and in combination with talk therapy have shown they could be used safely, delivering promising results in a wide range of tough-to-treat maladies, including opiate and tobacco addictio [...]View Article Here Read More

We understand that you wish to examine what is going on with the some enlightening human beings at this time. We are hearing that many are falling into despair. They are bone weary, soul weary if you will, and wonder where on earth they will find the energy to go on. Our answer is nowhere! You will not find the energy on earth to continue, however, through aligning with the endless spiritual supports that are in place, you will be able to navigate this quite beautifully.
We understand that this is a play on words. However, we wish to point out that if you are looking around you on the earth for support, that is not where it exists. It exists in your alignment with Source. Do you see? All of the loving supports are in place for you. You have worked hard to move yourself into this alignment yet many choose to step slightly out of it. When you are in your highest alignment you understand that there is nothing to do but just Be. You understand that everything is divinely perfect and you can observe without being unpleasantly effected by what is going on around you. By being in alignment, you choose to take that higher perspective that brings peace and love, acceptance and excitement for the change energies that are swirling around.
Now if you have, for whatever reason, stepped out of your highest alignment, you will find yourselves very uncomfortable indeed. When you are out of your highest alignment you lose your sense of Creator Self. You fall into the illusion that things can be wrong or bad. You lose sight of the purpose of the wonderful process that is going on around you. Sadly, you lose your view of the beauty and the sense of love and support that is always available to you. You buy into the illusion. It is so unnecessary, Dear Ones.
This is an amazing process that is happening on the earth right now. You have chosen to be here, to experience this. It is a great highlight to your existence. You planned for this. You were filled with the excitement of the potentials of the planet when you were planning this life expression. Most of you couldn’t wait to come in and have this experience. There is no way that you ever would have chosen more than you can handle. It will only feel that way if you allow yourself to step out of your highest alignment.
People will ask, well Gabriel, how do we do that? Give us the steps, give us the instructions. It is very simple, Dear Ones. You get there by choosing it. We tell you to simply Be. This instruction is dissatisfying to many. They say that it is too simple. We laugh at this because in it’s simplicity, it seems like it is a very difficult thing for the enlightening human being to do! We say, do whatever brings you joy. Again, this advice gets dismissed.
In reality dear ones, when you are just Being, you are allowing yourselves to align. When you choose activities that bring you joy, it is through that joyful activity that you align. When you allow yourself to stay in your highest alignment, you will not only see things from the higher perspective where everything is divinely perfect; you will also be embracing your Creator Self. And while you are doing this, you will be doing exactly what you came here to do which is supporting the planet and each other during these amazing and unprecedented times.
Honor yourselves, Dear Ones! Just for a second allow yourselves to see yourselves as we see you, shining in your light and integrity, your courage and your love. Take a moment to see, truly see, how far you have come in the last year, five years, ten years of your time.
Nothing can be wrong in this process because you are the ones who are creating it! And you truly are doing it magnificently. It is simple, Dear Ones. Do not make it more complicated than it needs to be. You have an entire universe supporting you and cheering you on. This is all we have for you today.

"You live now with unprecedented opportunities to evolve spiritually. It may seem to be the worst of times, with chaos and catastrophes seemingly at every turn. You may question how you can advance when your world is so full of hate. You may wonder how, in the window of 2012, with its many question marks, you can achieve the kind of realization modeled by the Buddha.
You may doubt that the jewel of enlightenment can be yours this life. For just a moment now, set aside these doubts.
Let go of your preconditions, your impatience, and your judgments about what is possible.
Trust that there is a Divine intelligence within you that can guide you along the path of enlightenment. This wise part of you can connect you with insights about the baggage you will want to let go of in this current cycle. It can help you to prioritize your energies, your focus, and your actions in the world. It can lead you to the people, teachers, and transpersonal help you need to view yourself and your life differently.
You can discover new resources, new applications for transformational tools, and simple methods to greatly accelerate your forward movement. You can learn to connect more with the synchronicities of life, and with eternal time rather than linear time.
Here are 5 things you can do daily to progress rapidly:
1. Monitor your emotions, thoughts, and body. Each will give you very helpful clues about what is out of balance and why.
2. Set specific intentions for what you want to have, be and do. State these intentions in a positive way, rather than negative. Example: I am feeling more and more confident each day.
3. Take action on the things you say you want to create. Act on one thing at a time, allowing your intuitively guided wisdom to help you prioritize. Even if all you did in one day was to take the 1-mile walk you intended to, acknowledge yourself for doing that.
4. Find one or more simple practices to help you open your awareness. These can be straightforward spiritual practices like deep breathing, moments of silent contemplation, or just being as loving as you can in each moment with your words and actions. The important thing is consistency and finding something you will do daily. You will want to have your "practice" in your mind and awareness during the day, allowing it to become a part of your routine.
5. Begin and end each day with some positive and loving thoughts. Loving thoughts include those of gratitude. Remember that your inner state will determine how you experience your day as well as your sleep state. Therefore, be as loving as you can towards yourself. Allow that self-love to grow over time, creating an energy field inside of you and around you, effortlessly broadcasting from you in all directions. This love will begin to attract fortunate circumstances, opportunities, and the love you seek from others and your world.
As you continue the journey of rediscovering your Divine nature, we surround you with our love and blessings. We are The Council of 12."

Apart from a day where all went unexpectedly well, there was this tiny matter of deciding what to eat on an empty wallet. But even that turned out to solve itself magically:
Voila, my macaroni minestrone for this week, or at least three days of it....
Looks yummy, right? And believe me, it is! But why do I call it fringe food? Because it is a sign of so-called just-in-time Abundance. Here's the story:
Last saturday I bought a pound of meatloaf, which was on sale at the local supermarket. Add to that a bag of elbow macaroni, and all you really need is something to give it some taste. While working I figured I could use the two cans of minestrone soup I still had in my cupboard. Thinking about it on the return trip home, I figured this would be one of those successful intuitive cooking jobs, so by the time I got home I couldn't wait to try it out. Sorry for the delay in the evening update, but some things take precedence....
So, I opened the cans of soup, and threw them in the strainer to remove the more watery parts. That left a mix of various vegetables, vermicelli, and various undefined ingredients, that taste good in soup. Put on some water for the macaroni, and stirfried the meatloaf to a crumbling mess while waiting for the water to boil. It was nice and crispy by the time the water boiled. I threw the macaroni in the water, could have added a pinch of salt, and had to wait for another eight minutes to get it done. Drain the water off, throw in the meatloaf and minestrone ingredients, and stir until it's nicely mixed. Anybody wanna try?
Come to think of it, that may have been one of the last times I really need fringe cooking: this morning, I got a mail about a 'Brand name dispute'. Sounds ominous, right? Apparently some chinese company wants to use 'Moorelife' as a brand name at least in China and Asia, and they detected that I hold the domain moorelife.nl.... Talk about a fortunate synchronicity. I'm not saying we're moving yet, but did send them a nice reply to indicate willingness to vacate, should they figure they need that. Probably a scam, but stay tuned.....
Love your Light,
