For a long time I was a practicing advocate of willful ignorance, I refused to watch the news or have any idea about what was going on around me. No listening to war reports or even what the latest news on the Ebola virus was. Mainstream media (all owned by one of how many companies is it now) is nearly all fear based and does nothing but help to control the masses with whatever propaganda they are getting the most $$ to support.

What I didn’t realize at the time was how PRO independent media I really was. From 1996, yes, I was ‘online’ even back then, I was researching what I thought to be the truth. By 1999 I had eliminated anything in my cabinets that contained High Fructose Corn Syrup, the first step in a long journey to live a healthy life. My journey is to not just believe what I hear but to actually do some research and draw my own conclusions.

For example –the population of the United States is over 300 million and we have had 18 reported cases of the Zika virus, literally .0000057% of the total population has been affected. YET the media has many convinced that you shouldn’t even go outdoors as you might get this virus and DIE. Yet they tell us NOTHING about the dangers of covering our bodies in poisons like DEET which affect far more people daily!

I can tell you what has changed since all of the Zika virus scare – our beautiful, glorious firefly population. It went from plentiful before they sprayed our neighborhood to nearly non-existent. If it is killing off our fireflies, what else is this mosquito spraying killing? Spraying for mosquitos is also making those beautiful outdoor organic gardens not so organic.

What you don’t know, can hurt you and if you believed the old adage that says the opposite, “what you don’t know can’t hurt you”, than I am sorry to be the barer of bad news and let you know that this is just one more thing that we have to unlearn. The more I learn about everything, the more I am compelled to learn and the more determined I am to do my small part in bringing awareness to those ready to wake up to what life is meant to be.

Whole Organic Foods no more poisonous pesticides, no more torturing the animals we feed on, no more listening to mainstream fear mongering media, for a start. We do have a choice let’s take back our power & tune into independent media. 

Namaste Y’all,
