Furthering New Science, Awakening to the Delusions of Mainstream Science

Further to the issue of scientific validity and what is Science, here is a website link and an article that came to me and which adds more points for those who believe and work on the new science.

And here is a talk of Rupert Sheldrake on Science Set Free Science Set Free by Rupert Sheldrake

Another find that gives us a comprehensive presentation of the new science is Spirit Science
It contains videos of various topics and the comprehensive one so far may be viewed here .

Yogic Farming, A Quantum Agriculture approach

There are many ways to quantumize farming. Approaches are varied and diverse. Here is a cartoon video of one, based on Yoga: Yogic agriculture. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DbBINFKxto0&feature=share&list=PLvItrIn_gNDXZNNW7VfLv90gdz5KwKzXB

Sustainable Yogic Agriculture

The basic needs for human sustenance such as food, clothing, shelter and health etc. depend directly or indirectly on

farming and associated activities. The economy of a developing country like India is broadly based on agriculture.

The farming sector almost contributes 26% of the national production, and 64% of the population in the country depends upon

agriculture for their livelihood. India has been primarily regarded as ‘An Agriculture Economy’.
There are many countries in the world where farming activities are either undeveloped or underdeveloped. These countries

depend upon the imports of Agricultural produce ancient to present time or from death to birth, it has greater contribution

in the human life.

The Rural Development Wing of the Rajyoga Education and Research foundation, the sister institution of Prajapita

Brahmakumari Ishwariya Vishwa Vidyalaya , has been bringing awareness about the Sustainable Yogic Agriculture Project among

the farmer brothers and sisters for over three years. Many Rajayogi farmer brothers and sisters of Maharastra and Gujrat

(states of India) which are in touch with this Vishwa Vidyalaya (University) have applied the powers of Rajayoga Meditation

to their farming process. They have also evolved newer and innovative methods and techniques of preparing organic

fertilizer on their own and have used them in their farming. They have succeeded in getting better crop output at lesser

costs. It is a novel step towards bringing a new era, the golden era on earth.

Quantum Initiatives Springing from Mt Makiling, Philippines

Societal Threefolding, Presencing… these are tools or techniques to achieve quantum leap or do quantum change. Sustainable societal change must be animated by a critical mass of enlightened committed citizens. That is the basis of the Liwanag World Festival that happened last 29th Jan to 2nd Feb 2013, in Davao City, which is part of the island of Mindanao. The festival aimed to let the special light from the Philippines and other parts of the globe be seen by the whole world… light from the Philippines, being collectively lit by imaginals or individuals who have a vision of the future and are connected to their special life task (purpose) and are doing strategic projects in society. MISSION of Imaginals is spearheading events like the Liwanag. To get a glimpse of the event one may visit the website of  Liwanag, or view some photos of  the Liwanag event which I put together for sharing and memory aid. Select individuals who live in, or have at one point lived in Mt Makiling (or are doing something elsewhere but are connected to Mt Makiling initiatives), have been presented at the Festival through an exhibit. Special feature is on the visionary (Flor Pablo) who is in touch with spiritual teachers or guardians; her mission is described in a set of slides. In the same event I also described  my own “quantum” initiative.

Here are some videos to give one an idea about the Liwanag event.

Light from a Visionary in Mt Makiling: Revelations on Agriculture, Spirituality, History and Culture, Genesis

There is a very interesting phenomenon occurring in my area… Mt Makiling , a mountain bounded by Laguna and Batangas provinces in the Philippines. One would find extraordinary happening in her area. The lady (Flor Pablo) is in touch with spiritual beings and receives various messages, from gardening, to mushroom production and others which come to her intuitively or through her writing using an ancient Filipino script called Baibayin (or baybayin as populary spelled). Instructions are often out of the box or beyond textbooks. She learned only later that what she was writing was Baibayin. One thing that intrigued me was her affirmation of scientific and biblical facts and sometimes she reveals some aspects which baffled scientists and the religious alike… a true meeting of science and spiritual science occurs in her garden. She is revealing some teachings in anthroposophy, such as homeopathy, earth and human evolution, and many others. She is also blending this with some vedic truths and practices. She is into Agnihotra-Homa Therapy and use of Sangeevini healing symbols. New messages come to her almost every day… I will be posting more later. But for now here is a set of slides which I prepared for the Liwanag World Festival ( Exhibit section) which concluded last week. http://liwanagworldfest.net/web2.2/.

Here is Liwanag or Light in a nutshell: There is another world and another Philippines emerging in the very midst of decay and pain. To reveal, see, experience and fully appreciate this world, is the task of Liwanag: World Festival on Creativity and Sustainability… From 29 January to 02 February 2013, thousands of people (and millions more thru tri-media) will converge in Davao City, Philippines to see the glowing contours of such a world. Liwanag will showcase brilliant, heart-centered initiatives in all dimensions of sustainability: ecological, economic, cultural, political, societal, human, and spiritual… Our hearts will pound with resonance, excitement and Love as we start to truly see and experience this diversity of inspiring initiatives. For these initiatives, taken together, are the elements of the future world that is alive and growing amidst us today…Come to LIWANAG. Contribute your inner Light to the flame of hope and Love that is permeating the world!

The Liwanag Festival is an initiative of MISSION  (http://www.imaginalmission.net/web2.0/) aiming for societal transformation through a quantum approach. The meaning of MISSION explains it all:

MISSION stands for Movement of Imaginals for a Sustainable Society through Initiatives, Organizing, and Networking.

Wellspring of Initiatives for Spiritual Development

 

This artwork-mushroom image may be found in the internet, but the way it found itself into the laptop that Flor was using is most amazing; more mysterious is the Baibayin writing that appeared on it minutes later.

Lectures and movie to help in understanding and internalizing quantum

For learning about quantum agriculture intuitively or the usual way, there exist many helpful videos, lectures, articles and the like. What I present here are some short and simple ones, or are highly inspiring ones that would connect us to the greater whole, to the cosmos, the universe, and even (or especially) God… to our Home. We are a holon and learning about a small part would actually already reveal the greater part. We are grateful to have now rich materials for knowing and what is left is the greater challenge of applying and doing. More will be posted later…

Overview …

The documentary chronicles the present day state of the Earth, its climate and how we as the dominant species have long-term repercussions on its future. A theme expressed throughout the documentary is that of linkage—how all organisms and the Earth are linked in a “delicate but crucial” natural balance with each other, and how no organism can be self-sufficient.

The first 15 minutes include footage of the beginning of the natural world, starting with single-celled algae developing at the edges of volcanic springs. By showing algae’s essential role in the evolution of photosynthesis, it also explores the innumerable species of plants which all have their origins in this one-celled life form.

In the rest of the first hour of the film, the documentary takes on a more human-oriented focus, showing the agricultural revolution and its impacts, before moving on to talk about the harnessing of oil, leading to fire, industry, cities and inequality gaps like never before. It portrays the current predicament regarding cattle ranches, deforestation, food and water shortages, the use of non-renewable “fossil water”, the over-quarrying crisis and the shortage of energy, namely electricity. Cities such as New York CityLas VegasLos AngelesShenzhenMumbaiTokyo and Dubai are used as examples of the mismanagement and waste of energy, water and food. The recession of marshlands and glaciers are shown in vast aerial shots of AntarcticaThe North Pole and Africa, while mass emigration and refugee counts are shown currently and forecast in the event that these events remains unchanged.

It is at this point that the film begins to focus on global warming and the carbon crisis. Home shows how melting glaciers, rising sea levels and changing weather patterns are ravaging the people who have least to do with climate change, but also how it soon will affect rich populous areas.

Here, about three minutes of film is given to displaying harsh facts in large white text on a black background followed by a video representation of the fact. This is followed by a positive conclusion. The documentary claims to show the “awful truths” regarding our impact on the Earth, but also what we are now doing to combat and reverse it, including: renewable energy, the creation of more and more national parks, international co-operation between various nations on environmental issues and the extra education and reform being had across the globe in response to the current problems facing the earth. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Home_(2009_film)

WAVE OF CHANGE

A new wave of change is here. This wave permeates all aspects of human and earth existence. On the other hand, new knowledge is being revealed and new tools are being developed to answer current challenges: illnesses, pests and diseases, climate changes, calamities, etc. Approaches have been 2-pronged: one hangs on to the old mechanistic reductionist model, the other explores what is beyond that, as well as the fundamental role of human beings in addressing all these challenges in a synthesis way. Einstein’s premise is that we cannot find solution to our problems with approaches that come from the same framework that created the problem in the first place. These solutions must be coming from outside the box. And that outside the box space has been there all along, among ancient practices and teachings, and is now confirmed by the new science of “quantum”.
