In our video Transformation of Humanity we addressed the unjust and inequitable ways of society – overcoming the senseless exploitation of humanity and other sentient life through the Power of Non-Compliance. Fueled by consumer demand, large corporations are exploiting the earth and seriously damaging the environment. What can we do about it? The power is in our pockets. Money makes the matrix go around! You have enormous power in your decisions of what not to buy. Here’s an insightful video of how people are making a difference in the global fashion industry by taking up Greenpeace’s “Detox” mantel…
The video demonstrates that conscious consumerism can make a difference. And remember, every thing you do, every step you take, every item you consume affects your evolutionary vibration!…
Artemis: ”The power is in our pockets.”
Every night and every morn
Some to misery are born,
Every morn and every night
Some are born to sweet delight.
Some are born to sweet delight,
Some are born to endless night.
From the poem Auguries of Innocence
From Wiki: ”Auguries of Innocence is a poem from one of William Blake’s notebooks now known as The Pickering Manuscript. It is assumed to have been written in 1803, but was not published until 1863 in the companion volume to Alexander Gilchrist’s biography of William Blake. The poem contains a series of paradoxes which speak of innocence juxtaposed with evil and corruption. The poem is 132 lines and has been published with and without breaks that divide the poem into stanzas. An augury is a sign or omen.”

From Wiki: ”The ney (Persian: نی/نای; Turkish: ney; Azerbaijani: ney; Arabic: ناي; also nai, nye, nay, gagri tuiduk, or karghy tuiduk, Kurdish: Shimshal; Uzbek: nay), is an end-blown flute that figures prominently in Middle Eastern music. In some of these musical traditions, it is the only wind instrument used. The ney has been played continuously for 4,500–5,000 years, making it one of the oldest musical instruments still in use.
"The Persian ney consists of a hollow cylinder with finger-holes. Sometimes a brass or plastic mouthpiece is placed at the top to protect the wood from damage, but this plays no role in the sound production." The ney consists of a piece of hollow cane or reed with five or six finger holes and one thumb hole. Modern neys may be made instead of metal or plastic tubing. The pitch of the ney varies depending on the region and the finger arrangement. A highly skilled ney player can reach more than three octaves, though it is more common to have several "helper" neys to cover different pitch ranges or to facilitate playing technically difficult passages in other dastgahs or maqams.
In Romanian, the word nai is also applied to a curved Pan flute. ruhu tedavisi ney”… Read more on Wiki: HERE
