Quick Finds: Litefoot – Native American Hip-Hop

Quick Finds: Litefoot – Native American Hip-Hop

FILM REVIEW: “Inside Job” Documentary (2010)

FILM REVIEW: “Inside Job” Documentary (2010)

inside

REPOST: When it comes to banking and the economy I am pretty much an idiot. When the economic crisis happened back in 2008 as well as how it occurred, I was a bit clueless on what happened and how it happened. “Inside Job” is a well put together documentary going step by step in getting the layman, such as I, in understanding what happened with the Markets and how millions of people and billions of dollars virtually disappeared because of the actions of a few bankers and politicians.

Tom McDonald – “Castles”

Tom McDonald – “Castles”

Verse 1
I see you at the liquor store leaving with the cheapest can of beer on the shelf
You ain’t living on the street, but you barely making rent, and I relate because I’m struggling myself
I see you smile at the clerk while you fumble through your purse, I just wish I had a little more to help
I imagine where you living, how you feeling, what you love and who you’ll be if you can make it out your hell
I see you at the bus stop, looking at the sidewalk, smoking half a cigarette, waiting for a ride
Kinda limp when you walk and look away when you talk, you’re ashamed, I can see it in your eyes
Probably got a NASCAR shirt and a car that you love, but you’re here ’cause you’re too afraid to drive
It’s been almost ten years since the day that you crashed, can’t forget about the little boy’s life

Stateless

Stateless

by Leo Babauta

Every day, we are dealing with a thousand things, overrun by emails and messages and tasks and chores … and it can become overwhelming and shut us down.

I’d like to talk about an idea I’ve been working with, called the Stateless Protocol.

It’s meant to reduce the overwhelm and help us to focus and be more present.

Let me explain the idea, then we’ll talk about how to apply it.

The Physics of Consciousness

The Physics of Consciousness

By: Jason Lincoln Jeffers

REPOST: Quantum physics posits that nothing really happens in the physical world unless a conscious mind observes it. In other words, consciousness must perceive what it creates in order for that creation be real. This theory can be corroborated in the dream world. When we dream, we create our dream and perceive our dream at the same time. We do it so seamlessly that we are unaware that we, are in fact, the dreamer.

Bad Things Happen to You Because You Are Attracting Negative Energy – Let’s Change That

Bad Things Happen to You Because You Are Attracting Negative Energy – Let’s Change That

By Belinda Daly:

What is Law of Attraction? Well Law of Attraction is the belief that you completely draw everything to you – good and bad.

Remember this does not mean that if something bad happens to you that you wanted it to happen to you. What I am saying is that, for some reason, you have ingrained the belief in your inner being that something bad is going to happen to you so inevitably something bad actually happens to you.

Duality Vs. Polarity

Duality Vs. Polarity

by: James Renford Powell
REPOST: The one concept that above all others plagues human beings, and has done so for all of recorded history, is the concept of duality. It is a hidden enemy, created in wrong thought (relative consciousness), and fed by fear. It has divided the world of man and has been the instrument of more death and destruction than all the terms we commonly use to describe evil. And yet the people of the world, as a whole, continue trapped in the same belief pattern. What is this thing called “duality”? Virtually every Church and most of the religions of the world have propagated this idea in their doctrine. Why is it such a pervasive idea, and why has it attracted such a following?

Do Yoda Proud: Meditation 101

Do Yoda Proud: Meditation 101

by Dr. Janette Marie Freeman – http://www.janettemariefreeman.com

REPOST: Meditation is most commonly associated with monks, mystics and other spiritual disciplines. However, you don’t have to be a monk or mystic to enjoy its benefits. And you don’t even have to be in a special place topractice it. You could even try it in your own living room!

Although there are many different approaches tomeditation, the fundamental principles remain the same. The most important among these principles is that of removing obstructive, negative, and wandering thoughts and fantasies, and calming the mind with a deep sense of focus. This clears the mind of debris and prepares it for a higher quality of activity.

IMMORTAL TECHNIQUE – Civil War featuring Killer Mike and Brother Ali

IMMORTAL TECHNIQUE – Civil War featuring Killer Mike and Brother Ali

Intro
Like anybody, I would like to live — a long life; longevity has its place. But I’m not concerned about that now. I just want to do God’s will. And He’s allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I’ve looked over. And I’ve seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the Promised Land. So I’m happy, tonight. I’m not worried about anything. I’m not fearing any man. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord – MLK Jr

Five Heavy Metal Songs That Made Me Realize the Reality of Death.

Five Heavy Metal Songs That Made Me Realize the Reality of Death.

REPOST: Yeah, I’m one of those long haired Metal-head types that grew up listening to aggressive music, getting into the mosh pit at concerts, stage diving into crowds, and a bit of headbanging at times. One thing that drew me to Heavy Metal was the depth of some of the lyrics in some of the bands I listened to. I contribute music in being one of the main vehicles that made me question the reality of life as well as death. Below is a small list of songs that made me open up to the understanding of the last aspect of life….Death.
