Scientists Warn Geo-Engineering Can Kill Billions of People

Geo-engineering is an umbrella term for deliberate climate intervention that includes spraying
the sky with aerosols to reflect solar radiation away from Earth in order to cool the planet and
to save the environment and humanity from the effects of supposedly man-made global
warming. There is evidence that this program has already been implemented for many years
using unidentified chemical aerosols, known as chem trails.
Geo-engineering is touted as a last-ditch effort to save people and the planet from global
warming. But the truth is that Geo-engineering can alter rain cycles leading to droughts and
famine that could result in billions of deaths!
Therefore, Bill Gates appears to be using his concern over global warming to cloak his real
intent of controlling weather and/or depopulation.

Mount Pinatubo Model for Geo-Engineering Drought, Famine & Death

The Mount Pinatubo volcano in the Philippines erupted in 1991, spewing 22 million tons of
sulfur dioxide (SO2) into the upper atmosphere/stratosphere. A 2008 study from Rutgers
University based a model on Mount Pinatubo sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions and applied it
to Geo engineering; the scientists said that they expected overall global cooling, but some
regions would experience an increase in greenhouse gases and warming, as was recorded
after Pinatubo erupted.
Based on the SO2 volcanic model, the scientists reported that Geo engineering aerosols
sprayed in tropical or Arctic regions are likely to disrupt African and Asian/Indian summer
monsoons, threatening the food and water supply for billions of people!
Additional negative consequences include ozone depletion, reduced strength of hydrological
cycles resulting in decreased river flow and soil moisture.
While the scientists, led by Alan Robock, who performed the experiments appear to believe in
man-made global warming, they do have stern warnings against the dangers of Geoengineering.
climate.envsci.rutgers.edu2012 Geo-Engineering StudyThe Max Planck Institute conducted a study of Geo engineering models based on volcanoes,
but the study was unrealistic because it used climate models with 400% more carbon dioxide
than the pre-industrial era. However, their results showed that Geo engineering will cause a
strong decrease in rainfall (a 15% loss in North America and Eurasia and a 20% decrease in
South America). Overall, global rainfall would be reduced by 5%.
Unless one considers the financial benefits (government and private grants), it is bewildering
why the academia would support Geo-engineering.

Geo-Engineering Can Cause Warming

Geo-engineering can actually cause global warming when tampering with clouds in the upper atmosphere/stratosphere. The Gates-funded scientist lobbyists propose spraying sulfur
dioxide 30 miles above Earth and the New Mexico experiment proposes spraying 15 miles
above surface- both of these fall within the parameters of the upper atmosphere/stratosphere.
The troposphere is the lowest portion of the Earth’s atmosphere, extending an average of 4 to
12 miles above surface. Clouds that are in the lower troposphere are generally thick white
clouds with a high rate of albedo or reflectivity of the sun’s rays away from Earth that produce
a cooling effect. However, the experiments are to be conducted above this level in the upper
The upper atmosphere is called the stratosphere and extends as high as 31 miles above the
Earth’s surface. The clouds in the higher stratosphere are generally thin, have a lower albedo
reflective rate and act like a blanket that traps
heat.Both experiments propose dumping SO2 in the upper atmosphere/stratosphere, creating a
heat-trapping blanket that would theoretically increase warming. This is the opposite of
Gates’ stated goal to cool the planet.(Note: most long-distance planes fly at 6 miles above
surface, in the lower atmosphere/troposphere)

What About the EPA?

Given that the EPA claims that sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions cause health problems and early
death and that they are shuttering coal plants over emissions, you may be wondering why the

\EPA isn’t screaming bloody murder over Gates’ SO2 aerosol-spraying experiments.The answer
can be found on the EPA’s own website where they promote giving regulatory power over Geoengineering/chem trails to the UN and/or developed countries that fund the programs. The
EPA is abdicating power to international interests.Bill Gates’ failure to address the EPA’s dire
warnings of the dangers of SO2 is proof that he is aware that the EPA’s claims are
grossly overstated or that he doesn’t really care about the environment and has ulterior
Global Warming and UN Control Global warming is a ruse that claims that life on
planet Earth is in grave danger- this alarmism is used for political gain. Global warming is a
hoax based on manipulated science from the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate
Change. The UN currently is assuming control over Geo engineering through its Convention
on Biological Diversity treaty that declared a moratorium on experiments, except in
some cases. 
ConclusionGeo-engineering is either a risky adventure to test ignorant theories or a scheme to control
weather, water and food supplies.
Bill Gates’ record as a depopulation enthusiast supports the argument that Geo engineering is
a weather domination scheme that may be used as a weapon threatening the lives of billions
of people.

Cancer Patient Given 18 Months To Live Is Cured By Cannabis

33 year old David Hibbitt from Staffordshire cured by cannabis oil (which cost £50 a gram from a local dealer)  after he refused chemo. Now he’ll live to get married to his bride to be and start a beautiful life together.
We are so excited to see this being carried in the mainstream news.
Cancer Cured By Cannabis
Friends had told me about cannabis oil and I dismissed it at first. I’ve never been into drugs,’ the father-of-one said.
‘I felt like the chemo was killing me and I had nothing to lose. I could not really accept I was going to die.’
He had underwent grueling  sessions of chemotherapy and radiotherapy before having surgery to remove his large bowel in March 2013, which were all unsuccessful.
But after his cannabis ‘cure’ he is now looking forward to the future after tying the knot with his partner of six years Heather Martin, 26, at a registry office earlier today.
What great news! He’s been with his partner 6 years (who has stood by his side) and now can finally stand by her side to walk down the aisle!
For years now parents of kids cured with cannabis or stories of people like David were squelched by the mainstream media but finally, people are realizing that chemotherapy so often fails and cannabis is a safer alternative with fewer side effects -and in cases like David’s (and countless others) it’s working. It’s really working!
We’re thrilled that it’s becoming more readily available and only hope that they’ll pass a law in the state where I live for the use of medical marijuana. We see pregnant women prescribed oxycontin like it’s candy, yet people suffering with cancer cannot get marijuana to help them? The good news is cannabis oil is available to most people now, but it’s still got a way to go so that everyone can it. We’re also happy to see Cancer Research UK supports clinical use of the drug (or plant as most people call it) but wonder if they’ll ever really admit how it can cure cancer.
I’ve been going to NORML meetings since my teens starting in 1990 and hope that someday it will be completely normal for folks to walk into a store and get cannabis oil for them, their family and loved ones. Bravo David. We love stories like this!

The REAL history of cancer in the US

We’ll start this off with the year 1905, when the American Medical Association (AMA) hired thugs to run what they called the Department of Investigation (DOI) to hunt down doctors who were using natural remedies and shut them down. This would ensure the rise of AMA profits. The DOI kept files on anyone who was cured of cancer by natural medicine. The DOI also kept notes about health foods and vitamins. A crook heading up the AMA at the time, Morris Fishbein, was an extortionist who required large payments to the AMA by pharma companies for the AMA’s golden “Seal of Acceptance” (sounds like today’s Fast Track drug approvals), even though the AMA didn’t have any facilities to test the highly experimental, chemical drugs.
It was a huge scam, but no medical doctors in America were privy to it. At the same time, all nutrition education was covertly removed from medical colleges, and chemical drugs were the only legal “medicine.” The tsunami of preventable diseases would ensue, including Alzheimer’s, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, and cancer. Before the early 1900’s, barely a case of preventable disease and disorder existed. The infamous AMA we know today started it all and they’re still “working hard” today to perpetuate the nightmare.
What exactly is cancer? Cancer is the uncontrolled division, multiplication and spread of mutated and warped cells that attack healthy cells and organs. Most cancer stems from the consumption of chemicals that cause an acidic body to be deprived of oxygen and nutrients. Though cancer was not literally created in the United States, the toxic food and medicine environment that catapults it was, so let’s take a look at how we got to where we are today, where one in every three Americans gets cancer in their lifetime, and half of those unfortunates are terminated by it.

Timeline of cancer propagation in the United States

1900 – Cancer (especially lung cancer) is rare. Only about 90 people out of every 100,000 are diagnosed with it.
1905 – The AMA begins suppressing known natural cures for ailments of all sorts and removes nutritional education from medical college curriculum.
1930 – Any scientists and physicians who discover cures for cancer find their labs destroyed or materials confiscated, then they’re arrested, silenced or murdered (this is still happening today, by the way).
1930s – FDA, AMA, and CDC suppress and deny natural cures and prevention strategies for cancer.
1930 – Microbiologist Dr. Royal Rife proves that if microbes inside cancer cells are killed, the cells revert back to normal ones.
1931 – Doctors from around the country join Dr. Raymond “Royal” Rife, who invented the first high-powered microscope that could directly observe bacteria and viruses, as he isolates a filterable virus of carcinoma and succeeds in destroying the typhus bacteria, not to mention the herpes virus and even strains of polio.
1937 – The AMA indicts Dr. Rife for “fraudulent” medical practices.
1938 – The AMA visits all doctors who support Dr. Rife (and those who use his instrument inventions) warning them that if they continue they will “lose their medical license.”
1939 – The AMA and the FDA destroy Dr. Rife’s lab (and attempted to destroy all of his research, including his academic committee records) because his cancer cure rate was 100 percent among his patients.
1939 – The AMA literally pays a cancer researcher, Dr. Arthur Kendall, over $250,000 (that would be worth about $5 million today) to stop working on cancer cures and retire in Mexico, where he owned land.
1944 – Dr. Kendall dies of mysterious, unknown causes.
1940s – Lung cancer is scientifically discovered to be caused by smoking cigarettes, yet the AMA and 20,000 doctors endorse cigarettes as healthy and good for digestion for thirty more years.
1945 – The auspicious beginning of water fluoridation begins in Grand Rapids, Michigan just as WWII ends. Hitler had previously used the same type of fluoride in the drinking water in concentration camps to weaken the Jews to keep them from rebelling.
1950 – Post WWII food factories and plants begin processing American food in cans, adding cancer-causing chemical additives and chemical preservatives.
1955 – Dr. Jonas Salk removes kidneys of rhesus monkeys, injects them with three different strains of polio and incubates them to stimulate growth of the virus. Then he dilutes the combination of strains with formaldehyde to weaken the virus, then injects it into live monkeys, mice and rabbits and claims, along with CDC, the new “miracle vaccine of the century!” has been discovered and that it’s “safe, potent and efficient.” Fake polio vaccine cure is shipped in vials all over the world. The false “herd theory” is invented.
Late 1950s – Polio vaccines given to nearly 100 million Americans contaminated with hidden leukemia and SV40 cancer viruses (it was all admitted and recorded by Merck scientist named Dr. Maurice Hilleman, who was there at the time and witnessed it all). He’s now called the “Forgotten Hero.”
1963 – Researchers inject cancer cells into 19 elderly, debilitated patients at a Jewish Chronic Disease Hospital in Brooklyn, NY. The pharma-funded experiment was carried out on blacks and Jews that were prisoners because “they were cheaper than chimpanzees,” according to pharma industry officials.
1970s – Invasive medical procedures become the “norm” for treating cancer, including surgery, radiation, mammograms, chemotherapy and other dangerous toxic pharmaceuticals.
1971 – President Nixon declares the fake “War on Cancer” by launching the “National Cancer Act” while dishing out a cool $100 million to front groups, including NCI (National Cancer Institute) funds for promoting toxic chemotherapy.
1970s – Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski finds an advanced, cutting edge and non-toxic gene-targeting cure for even the most lethal forms of cancer (such as brain cancer and tumors on the spines in children).
1977 – The FDA raids Dr. Burzynski’s clinic, steals his patented formulas, seizes 12,000 patient records, purposely dilutes the most important ingredients of his neoplastons formula, then claims it doesn’t work after running tests (Dr. Burzynski is still curing people of cancer today at his clinic in Texas).
1980s – Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) introduced to corn and soy across USA. Genetically engineered and mutated produce in America would now be infected with insecticides and herbicides from the inside out.
1980s – Komen Foundation, American Cancer Society, National Cancer Institute, Karmanos Cancer Institute, and many more front groups all raise money (for administrative salaries and costs mainly) while pretending to “search for cure” for cancer.
2010 – Google, YouTube and Social Media controllers begin massive purge of all information about curing cancer, natural remedies, CBD oil, hemp, etc.
2012 – National Cancer Institute (NCI) spends over $1.2 billion annually to bury natural cures.
2018 – Mercury is still used in vaccines, including flu shots, while CDC lies and says that it is not. There is no safe level of mercury, formaldehyde or aluminum that can be injected into a human.
2018 – Toxic sodium fluoride is still insidiously dripped into municipal tap water for the majority of Americans to consume.
Cancer cures are still being buried by the FDA, CDC, and the cancer industrial complex of the USA. Where should you begin to find answers? Consider the information shared in the video below by Dr. Leonard Caldwell.

The U.S. Is Not A Democracy — It Never Was

One of the most steadfast beliefs regarding the United States is that it is a democracy. Whenever this conviction waivers slightly, it is almost always to point out detrimental exceptions to core American values or foundational principles.
For instance, aspiring critics frequently bemoan a “loss of democracy” due to the election of clownish autocrats, draconian measures on the part of the state, the revelation of extraordinary malfeasance or corruption, deadly foreign interventions, or other such activities that are considered undemocratic exceptions.
The same is true for those whose critical framework consists in always juxtaposing the actions of the U.S. government to its founding principles, highlighting the contradiction between the two and clearly placing hope in its potential resolution.
The problem, however, is that there is no contradiction or supposed loss of democracy because the United States simply never was one.
This is a difficult reality for many people to confront, and they are likely more inclined to immediately dismiss such a claim as preposterous rather than take the time to scrutinize the material historical record in order to see for themselves.
Such a dismissive reaction is due in large part to what is perhaps the most successful public relations campaign in modern history.
What will be seen, however, if this record is soberly and methodically inspected, is that a country founded on elite, colonial rule based on the power of wealth — a plutocratic colonial oligarchy, in short — has succeeded not only in buying the label of “democracy” to market itself to the masses, but in having its citizenry, and many others, so socially and psychologically invested in its nationalist origin myth that they refuse to hear lucid and well-documented arguments to the contrary.
To begin to peel the scales from our eyes, let us outline in the restricted space of this article, five patent reasons why the United States has never been a democracy.
To begin with, British colonial expansion into the Americas did not occur in the name of the freedom and equality of the general population, or the conferral of power to the people. Those who settled on the shores of the “new world,” with few exceptions, did not respect the fact that it was a very old world indeed, and that a vast indigenous population had been living there for centuries.
As soon as Columbus set foot, Europeans began robbing, enslaving and killing the native inhabitants. The trans-Atlantic slave trade commenced almost immediately thereafter, adding a countless number of Africans to the ongoing genocidal assault against the indigenous population.
Moreover, it is estimated that over half of the colonists who came to North America from Europe during the colonial period were poor indentured servants, and women were generally trapped in roles of domestic servitude.
Rather than the land of the free and equal, then, European colonial expansion to the Americas imposed a land of the colonizer and the colonized, the master and the slave, the rich and the poor, the free and the un-free.
The former constituted, moreover, an infinitesimally small minority of the population, whereas the overwhelming majority, meaning “the people,” was subjected to death, slavery, servitude, and unremitting socio-economic oppression.
Second, when the elite colonial ruling class decided to sever ties from their homeland and establish an independent state for themselves, they did not found it as a democracy. On the contrary, they were fervently and explicitly opposed to democracy, like the vast majority of European Enlightenment thinkers. They understood it to be a dangerous and chaotic form of uneducated mob rule.
For the so-called “founding fathers,” the masses were not only incapable of ruling, but they were considered a threat to the hierarchical social structures purportedly necessary for good governance. In the words of John Adams, to take but one telling example, if the majority were given real power, they would redistribute wealth and dissolve the “subordination” so necessary for politics.
When the eminent members of the landowning class met in 1787 to draw up a constitution, they regularly insisted in their debates on the need to establish a republic that kept at bay vile democracy, which was judged worse than “the filth of the common sewers” by the pro-Federalist editor William Cobbett.
The new constitution provided for popular elections only in the House of Representatives, but in most states the right to vote was based on being a property owner, and women, the indigenous and slaves — meaning the overwhelming majority of the population — were simply excluded from the franchise.
Senators were elected by state legislators, the President by electors chosen by the state legislators, and the Supreme Court was appointed by the President. It is in this context that Patrick Henry flatly proclaimed the most lucid of judgments: “it is not a democracy.”
George Mason further clarified the situation by describing the newly independent country as “a despotic aristocracy.”
When the American republic slowly came to be relabeled as a “democracy,” there were no significant institutional modifications to justify the change in name. In other words, and this is the third point, the use of the term “democracy” to refer to an oligarchic republic simply meant that a different word was being used to describe the same basic phenomenon.
This began around the time of “Indian killer” Andrew Jackson’s presidential campaign in the 1830s. Presenting himself as a ‘democrat,’ he put forth an image of himself as an average man of the people who was going to put a halt to the long reign of patricians from Virginia and Massachusetts.
Slowly but surely, the term “democracy” came to be used as a public relations term to re-brand a plutocratic oligarchy as an electoral regime that serves the interest of the people or demos. Meanwhile, the American holocaust continued unabated, along with chattel slavery, colonial expansion and top-down class warfare.
In spite of certain minor changes over time, the U.S. republic has doggedly preserved its oligarchic structure, and this is readily apparent in the two major selling points of its contemporary “democratic” publicity campaign.
The Establishment and its propagandists regularly insist that a structural aristocracy is a “democracy” because the latter is defined by the guarantee of certain fundamental rights (legal definition) and the holding of regular elections (procedural definition).
This is, of course, a purely formal, abstract and largely negative understanding of democracy, which says nothing whatsoever about people having real, sustained power over the governing of their lives.
However, even this hollow definition dissimulates the extent to which, to begin with, the supposed equality before the law in the United States presupposes an inequality before the law by excluding major sectors of the population: those judged not to have the right to rights, and those considered to have lost their right to rights.
(Native Americans, African-Americans and women for most of the country’s history, and still today in certain aspects, as well as immigrants, “criminals,” minors, the “clinically insane,” political dissidents, and so forth).
Regarding elections, they are run in the United States as long, multi-million dollar advertising campaigns in which the candidates and issues are pre-selected by the corporate and party elite.
The general population, the majority of whom do not have the right to vote or decide not to exercise it, are given the “choice” — overseen by an undemocratic electoral college and embedded in a non-proportional representation scheme — regarding which member of the aristocratic elite they would like to have rule over and oppress them for the next four years.
“Multivariate analysis indicates,” according to an important recent study by Martin Gilens and Benjamin I. Page, “that economic elites and organized groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on U.S. government policy, while average citizens and mass-based interest groups have little or no independent influence. The results provide substantial support for theories of Economic-Elite Domination […], but not for theories of Majoritarian Electoral Democracy.”
To take but a final example of the myriad ways in which the U.S. is not, and has never been, a democracy, it is worth highlighting its consistent assault on movements of people power. Since WWII, it has endeavored to overthrow some 50 foreign governments, most of which were democratically elected.
It has also, according the meticulous calculations by William Blum in America’s Deadliest Export: Democracy, grossly interfered in the elections of at least 30 countries, attempted to assassinate more than 50 foreign leaders, dropped bombs on more than 30 countries, and attempted to suppress populist movements in 20 countries.
The record on the home front is just as brutal. To take but one significant parallel example, there is ample evidence that the FBI has been invested in a covert war against democracy.
Beginning at least in the 1960s, and likely continuing up to the present, the Bureau “extended its earlier clandestine operations against the Communist party, committing its resources to undermining the Puerto Rico independence movement, the Socialist Workers party, the civil rights movement, Black nationalist movements, the Ku Klux Klan, segments of the peace movement, the student movement, and the ‘New Left’ in general” (Cointelpro: The FBI’s Secret War on Political Freedom, p. 22-23).
Consider, for instance, Judi Bari’s summary of its assault on the Socialist Workers Party: “From 1943-63, the federal civil rights case Socialist Workers Party v. Attorney General documents decades of illegal FBI break-ins and 10 million pages of surveillance records.
The FBI paid an estimated 1,600 informants $1,680,592 and used 20,000 days of wiretaps to undermine legitimate political organizing.”
In the case of the Black Panther Party and the American Indian Movement (AIM) — which were both important attempts to mobilize people power to dismantle the structural oppression of white supremacy and top-down class warfare — the FBI not only infiltrated them and launched hideous smear and destabilization campaigns against them, but they assassinated 27 Black Panthers and 69 members of AIM (and subjected countless others to the slow death of incarceration).
If it be abroad or on the home front, the American secret police has been extremely proactive in beating down the movements of people rising up, thereby protecting and preserving the main pillars of white supremacist, capitalist aristocracy.
Rather than blindly believing in a golden age of democracy in order to remain at all costs within the gilded cage of an ideology produced specifically for us by the well-paid spin-doctors of a plutocratic oligarchy, we should unlock the gates of history and meticulously scrutinize the founding and evolution of the American imperial republic.
This will not only allow us to take leave of its jingoist and self-congratulatory origin myths, but it will also provide us with the opportunity to resuscitate and reactivate so much of what they have sought to obliterate.
In particular, there is a radical America just below the surface of these nationalist narratives, an America in which the population autonomously organizes itself in indigenous and ecological activism, black radical resistance, anti-capitalist mobilization, anti-patriarchal struggles, and so forth.
It is this America that the corporate republic has sought to eradicate, while simultaneously investing in an expansive public relations campaign to cover over its crimes with the fig leaf of “democracy” (which has sometimes required integrating a few token individuals, who appear to be from below, into the elite ruling class in order to perpetuate the all-powerful myth of meritocracy).
If we are astute and perspicacious enough to recognize that the U.S. is undemocratic today, let us not be so indolent or ill-informed that we let ourselves be lulled to sleep by lullabies praising its halcyon past.
Indeed, if the United States is not a democracy today, it is in large part due to the fact that it never was one.
Far from being a pessimistic conclusion, however, it is precisely by cracking open the hard shell of ideological encasement that we can tap into the radical forces that have been suppressed by it.
These forces — not those that have been deployed to destroy them — should be the ultimate source of our pride in the power of the people.

Want inner peace? Let go of these 9 beliefs

1. “I need to be doing something right now.”

This is an incredibly subtle belief that most of us don’t even realize we are holding onto. It stems from our obsession with productivity and achievement, and it manifests as a constant, itching discontent.

Though our ego tricks us into believing we need this feeling to get things done, when we can let it go we see a lot of our anxiety dissolves and our relaxation deepens. We’re also much more likely to enjoy what we need to do without the constant internal pressure of feeling that what we’re doing in this moment is never enough.

2. “When I get what I want I will be happy.”

This is another cliche that I’m sure most of us are aware of. But despite acknowledging that we don’t need to get anything to be happy, it’s easy for us to get caught up in the chase.

To overcome this, we need to be mindful of when we have the feeling that we need something before we can be happy. When we see we’re doing this we can practice letting go of that need, even if only for a brief moment. The more capable we become at doing so, the more we will naturally experience happiness in the present, and the less our minds will fixate on ideas of the future for fulfillment.

3. “Finding inner peace is difficult.”

This is another myth that gets in the way. Many of us feel that we are far from inner peace, and we idolize those who seem to have found it. Because of this, we unconsciously believe that it’s a long way away from where we are in our lives, and we need to go on a long journey to find it.

Maybe we’ve read books that suggest that fundamental change in how we feel or act takes years of difficult training or some sort of pilgrimage. But often it is letting go of the belief that what we want is so far away, and understanding that when you stop striving so aggressively you will start to see the calm you’re looking for. It is this process of turning your beliefs upside down that becomes the journey in itself.

4. “If I express my emotions honestly people will think I’m weak.”

We’re often taught, as we grow up, to keep a lid on our emotions. This is common for responses that are considered socially inappropriate such as anger, fear, and sadness. Though in many ways we’re also taught to limit how much we show our positive emotions such as joy and excitement. This leads us, in adulthood, to believe that honest expression will be met with disapproval by others.

The irony in this is that as everyone is dealing with the urge to be authentic, those that actually do so are often met with respect and admiration.

5. “If people knew the real me, they wouldn’t like it.”

This is similar to the issue we have with emotional expressions. We hide certain aspects of our personality, defining ourselves publicly by what we show and privately by what we’ve hidden. The reality is that you are a lot more than either of those stories, and people will gravitate toward the real you because they appreciate honesty.

6. “I should be happier right now.”

In our culture, we fixate too much on social comparisons between individuals. When we don’t feel good, we look at what we have and feel guilty for not being happy enough. Or, we look at what we don’t have and wonder why we’re not as happy as the next person. Happiness isn’t something you need to have all the time; it comes and goes, like any experience, but it’s not a prerequisite for being human.

7. “Not being the best me isn’t good enough.”

There’s been a huge movement in the last twenty years toward personal development. Though a lot of these ideas are healthy, they can be driven by toxic motives. Most people don’t feel they need to better themselves out of a genuine need to improve their community, but out of the feeling that they’re not good enough in the first place.

When you can strip yourself of this idea you’ll soon realize that the chase to being your best self is infinite and anxiety-inducing. You’ll see that you can love and appreciate yourself now, as you are, without needing to be someone else before feeling okay.

8. “I owe the world.”

This is a tough one and is related to the feeling of needing to be your best self. Though gratitude is important, it doesn’t mean we should walk around with the feeling that we’re in debt to the universe. We see this when people pathologically try to prove their worth to others. When we let go of the deep feeling of debt and obligation, we can then really start to give people what we have to offer.

9. “There was a time in my past that absolutely sucked.”

Often we become so identified with bad times in our past that they get in the way of us enjoying the present. We define ourselves with these past experiences and feel they we need to share them with everyone we know before they know the real us. But when we come to realize that they are far less significant than we initially thought, we stop feeling like imposters and we let old memories fall away.

More than 48 hours after the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history, police still don’t have a motive for the horrific crime.
But a more complete profile of the killer is beginning to emerge.
Stephen Paddock, the Las Vegas shooter who killed 59 people at a country music festival Sunday night, worked over a 10-year period as a letter carrier for the U.S. Postal Service, an IRS agent and a defense auditor.
A spokeswoman for the federal Office of Personnel Management told the Associated Press Tuesday that Paddock’s employment included two years as a mail carrier from 1976 to 1978.
That was followed by a six-year stint with the Internal Revenue Service until 1984. And then he worked 18 months as an internal auditor for U.S. Department of Defense.
The latest revelation suggests the U.S. government should have an extensive file on Paddock, who not only worked directly for the government for nearly a decade but then worked another year-and-a-half for federal weapons contractor Lockheed Martin.
With his institutional knowledge of how the federal bureaucracy works, Paddock was anything but the typical mass shooter. He would have been able to cover his tracks in the planning stages of his attack.
The Islamic State, or ISIS, has doubled down on its claim of responsibility for the attack, saying Paddock had converted to Islam in recent months and become a “soldier of the caliphate.”
But given the rapidly degrading status of ISIS, some analysts believe it could be entering a new phase where it is willing to risk credibility in its propaganda messages in exchange for a short-term boost in its prestige among Islamic terrorists worldwide.
In other news, leaked photos of the scene inside Paddock’s hotel room at the Mandalay Bay Resortappeared to show a note on a small table near the shooter’s dead body. As of this report, no details have been released about the contents of the note.
Photo reportedly shows Vegas shooters body after he killed himself in his hotel room Sunday evening

Video everywhere
Meanwhile, Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo says his office has partnered with the FBI on the investigation but still has not come up with a motive for the shooting.
Lombardo said at a Tuesday press conference that Paddock had set up cameras both inside and outside his hotel room, with at least one placed on a service cart in the hallway.
“I anticipate he was looking for anybody to take him into custody,” he said. “The FBI took all digital and electronic evidence into custody and is evaluating.”
Lombardo said he did not know if Paddock transferred any of the video he captured to any third parties in the U.S. or overseas before taking his own life.
“We’ve completed our investigation at the properties, three separate locations in Mesquite and Reno, at the hotel and the suspect’s vehicle,” he said.
An additional five handguns, two shotguns, electronics and “a plethora of ammunition” were found Tuesday on top of the approximately 30 guns uncovered Monday.
Ammonium nitrate fertilizer, used for bomb making, was also found in Paddock’s vehicle.
The sheriff confirmed earlier reports that at least one of the rifles was modified with a “bump stock” device used to speed up the discharge of ammunition. Paddock had enough ammunition “to continue shooting a lot longer” than the nine minutes he fired on the concert goers but was engaged quickly by police and private hotel security.
The sheriff said his agency learned from studying other active-shooter operations, including the one at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, that it’s better to go in quickly and engage the shooter than to wait for an army of police to arrive and seal off a perimeter.
The sheriff said the quick police action saved dozens of lives that potentially could have been snuffed out by a man with such firepower at his disposal. He had 17 guns and at least 1,000 rounds of ammo in the hotel room.
Girlfriend back in the spotlight

Also in the spotlight during the Tuesday press conference was the shooter’s girlfriend, Marilou Danley. Her location is now confirmed to be in the Philippines, and Lombardo called her “a person of interest” who has not necessarily been cleared of charges as was widely reported Monday. She will be thoroughly questioned as soon as she returns to the U.S., which is expected later this week.
Ammonium nitrate, found in Paddock’s car, is the same substance Timothy McVeigh used to blow up the federal building in Oklahoma City in the 1990s.
Danley will be asked about any knowledge she may have of this substance as well as other weapons used in the attack, and any plans her boyfriend may have shared with her.
In the weeks before the shooting, Paddock wired up to $100,000 to the Philippines for unspecified reasons, possibly to Danley or her family.
Danley may also be asked about her trips to Japan, the Philippines and Dubai in the Middle East.
Paddock did not have a Facebook account, which makes him unusual, compared to other 21st century mass shooters and terrorists.
“I assure you this investigation has not ended with the demise of Mr. Paddock,” Lombardo said.

When asked if the shooter’s motive had been determined, the sheriff said: “No. We are making progress, but I don’t have complete answers yet. I anticipate substantial information coming in over the next 48 hours.”
Paddock continued shooting for approximately nine minutes.
“The world has changed,” Lombardo said. “Who would have ever imagined something like this? I would have never imagined it.”
He said some victims were shot “outside the venue,” and others were shot in the venue but continued to run away and died “several blocks” from the venue.
All but three of the 59 victims have been identified, Lombardo said.
“This individual was premeditated, it was preplanned extensively, and I’m sure he evaluated every one of his actions,” Lombardo said. “I pray that a citizen who sees something says something. A citizen sees things and thinks it’s trivial, ‘Oh, I don’t want to bother the police.’ We ask you to bother the police, because housekeeping and other individuals could have seen something,” but none of them reported anything unusual about what they saw in the room.
It’s important, he said, because, “I don’t know that there won’t be future prosecutions.
“Did this person get radicalized, unbeknownst to us? And we want to identify that source.”
