Throughout our evolution as a human species we have survived because of this uncanny ability we have to adapt to our environment, which up until now has been an important factor in our survival. But I would like to bring up something that many of us have never thought of. What if the very aspect of adapting that has assured our survival has become the very thing that will assure our demise? We see it everywhere we look—we are adapting to a world that is toxic, not only on a physical level but emotionally and mentally also. I hear people say things all the time like “Well, that’s just how things are” or “Things are different now and we just need to get used to it” and even in business we hear it’s a “Dog-eat-dog world” and “Hey, don’t take it personally, business is business.”
Many of the people I observe are begging to be led by corrupt leaders because they don’t want to accept the responsibilities of life. We vote, not for the best leaders anymore; we vote for whomever is the least of the evils. And here lies the danger for those who are sleeping. The only way to continue sleeping is to “normalize” the world so we no longer need to be concerned and can continue to sleep.
I was watching a Kevin Klein movie in which he played a professor in The Emperor’s Club, and he was asking his students if they knew who Shutruk-Nahunte was. None of them knew who he was, even though his very name would make the Earth and its people tremble in the 12th century. He was the king of Anshand and Susa and sovereign of the land of Elam and by the command of his God destroyed Sippar. In the movie a plaque over the door of the classroom says, “Conquest & Ambition Without Contribution Is Worthless & Forgotten About.” Kevin told his students, “This is why you don’t know who Shutruk-Nahunte is; he never contributed to society so he was forgotten.”
That quote comes to mind today when I see the men, and women, who dominate the news on the world stage; they also go out and conquer with the blessings of their God, and sometimes their gods can be anything from blind ambition and financial profit to the narcissistic ambitions of a sociopath. It’s true—they make the ground tremble with their rhetoric and their actions dominate the media with daily press releases from Reuters and the Associated Press, which are repeated verbatim on our news/entertainment channels. But I would like to challenge everyone to turn off the TV and start paying attention to the people in our community who are actually contributing and making this world a little better place to live—many have ads and articles in this magazine, in fact. The Chico News & Review along with Upgraded Living do some excellent coverage of amazing people in our community who are doing incredible things, but we all need to start paying attention and taking action and being supportive.
I suppose one of the reasons I started a nonprofit radio show called Spiritual Activist is that I wanted a media platform where I can step into the realm of “conspiracy facts,” because we are far past the theory stage now when it comes to conspiracies. I see so many “false flag” operations going on that are meant to control society through fear. And if you go to YouTube you will find hundreds of YouTube channels that do nothing more than ridicule without a shred of supporting evidence. There are YouTube sites making a small fortune right now showing that the Earth is actually flat; what worries me is how easy it is to get people to believe, not only without supporting evidence, but with mountains of evidence to the contrary.
We all find ourselves living in a world with conflicting beliefs and ideas about truth and how we should be living our lives, but most of us have absolutely no experience with the very truth that we believe in; all we have is the belief that was passed down through many generations that disappear back into ancient times. I know people who vote only Republican or Democrat, no matter who is running. Then there are others who support only people and movements that agree with their ideologies and belief systems no matter how much they might conflict with others who are doing the same, even when they realize it will create more combatants in the process.
A subject with a little less of an emotional charge is the financial system on our planet and the elites who run it. I was listening to Bill Moyers interview the economist Paul Krugman about a book called Capital in the Twenty-First Century by Thomas Piketty. It runs more than 700 pages so I won’t be able to do the book justice here, but one of the things that took even Bill by surprise was the eye-opening fact that we have very few self-made billionaires any more. Most of the wealth, 40 to 60 percent, is being controlled by less than 1 percent of the population and is being passed on through their lineage. And study after study shows clearly that “we the people” have at best a minimal impact on public policy or congressional decisions; we live in what is officially now called an “oligarchy.”
As I mentioned before, these ideas and others are no longer conspiracy “theories,” so if you want to step out of the matrix of control and start envisioning the world as we know it should be, keep on reading our magazine, listen to my interviews on BBS Radio, and watch my interviews on our YouTube channel. I don’t want to mislead you here so let me say this: I don’t have all the answers but I do know that we all need to start “questioning the answers we’ve been given” because they simply do not work in today’s world. Many others on BBS Radio are opening minds and hearts so tune in. Sometimes it’s just nice to know that you’re not alone and there are some highly intelligent and conscious people coming up with solutions to problems that quite frankly, we have created by nonparticipation in the process we call “our lives.”
One of the reasons I love to talk with Bruce Lipton is that he has this uncanny way of overlaying biological processes onto world problems, which usually gives a clear answer or solution to what’s going on. I believe we live in times of great danger and at the same time, great opportunities, but only “if” we rethink the way we approach life. For instance, one of the aspects of human evolution that has guaranteed our survival has been our ability to adapt. And I can see that we are still doing this and creating new realities of normalization in the process. However, I can also see that the world we have created is the last thing we should adapt to; it’s toxic, environmentally unstable, with world governments that are corrupt and systemically unable to sustain themselves even on a moral level, a financial system that mimics the very structure and agenda of a Ponzi scheme, and the list goes on. But we are entering a period when polarities are dissolving and the old regime is transforming and becoming the foundation of a new vision of what we can become. Now let’s talk with an old friend, Bruce Lipton, and remember that you can watch this entire interview at www.YouTube.com/LotusGuide.
Lotus Guide: Hello, Bruce, we’ve been doing this for a long time now, about 12 years. You were in one of our first issues.
Bruce Lipton: I’m happy to still be here; it’s a blessing.
LG: If nothing else, just to see how this all plays out, because we are down to the wire and it does look like life as we know it is going to collapse, which is a good thing, actually, while we still have some resources left and maybe be able to save the environment.
BL: I’ve been talking to people for a long time about this because we cannot build a sustainable foundation on the existing structure, because the structure itself is corrupt. I try to tell people that this is actually good news. But people look at everything and are afraid, not realizing that the worst thing that can happen is for nothing to happen.
We are headed into and are actually in the midst of the sixth-greatest extinction period, but we are used to thinking of extinction periods lasting centuries or millennia, but what’s happening now is in decades. The truth is, if we want to build something new, we need to build it from the ground up because we can’t, and shouldn’t, fix this system. So we need to look at this as good news because it’s happening so fast that it’s waking a lot of people up.
LG: We definitely don’t want to fix the very system that got us into this mess in the first place. I sometimes use the analogy of our global civilization being like a building that was built on a foundation strong enough for 10 stories; now, we are up to 180 stories high and the foundation, and the building itself, is no longer sustainable. And if that’s not bad enough, the only way the building can continue to exist is if we keep building higher and higher; this is our financial system. Its survival is predicated on infinite growth based on commercialism and products, which in turn is dedicated to the false and somewhat insane assumption that we have infinite resources.
BL: What I can say regarding this is that our economic system is based on an unsound biological reality, because there are no organisms that continually grow. Like us, for instance. We reach a certain size and after that it’s all about replacement of what’s lost every day. In biology there’s the phase of growth and the phase of maintenance, which levels out in a flat line.
This has to be a wake-up call in the financial world—that nothing on Planet Earth continually grows and is able to perpetually sustain itself. I’m actually working with a friend of mine in Australia on a book on the economy based on biological principles. (Bruce goes into an interesting talk about ATP which is used to transport energy within cells for metabolism and how this explainss his position on financial economies, and you can watch the interview online, where he goes into this and many other views much more deeply … it’s a one and a half–hour interview.)
In biology, there are different levels to the economy/ATP. On one level, there is no wealth in the system until every cell in the body has the basics of life; in other words, no individual can have wealth until every person has the basics of life, food, shelter, health care, and so on. There comes a point where the cells have all they need and after that the accumulation of more ATP could be a liability. So the system has a way to store more ATP in case the body breaks a leg or has special needs. (In the next phase of our conversation we get into a socially sensitive topic, population control. Bruce explains the biological imperative and how this goes against the traditional survival-of-the-fittest mentality that we’ve been taught. Again, this is far too much information to include here but let me say this; birth control is not the answer. I guarantee you that this is something you’ve probably never thought of.)
LG: So, Bruce, let’s get into the “Three Amigos” (The Three Amigos is what Bruce, Joe Dispenza, and Gregg Braden call themselves) for a moment. In our spring issue of Lotus Guide, we had Dr. Joe Dispenza and it seems as if you and Joe and Gregg are all approaching the same problems in life but from different perspectives. Don’t ask me how I know this, but somehow by doing some of Joe’s meditations I feel like I’m rewiring my brain. I can see that old patterns are being canceled out by this process of rewiring and making new neural connections, which are giving me a new perspective on life and what it means to be a human being. We all have ancient neural networks that may have been appropriate for our survival in a different age, but now they have become dangerous in and of themselves.
BL: Here’s the point here, based on false perceptions of a Darwinian belief that life is based on struggle, which it isn’t. We came from a garden, call it the Garden of Eden, but now we’ve broken it up with borders and battlegrounds, which will ultimately need to be broken down. But here’s the thing: We are in the process of breaking down the old structure because it simply can’t survive because it can’t sustain itself any longer. In evolution, crisis provokes evolution and we’re there. (What he says next is very important to understand.) Every human on this planet is a cell forming a new structure of a new organism called humanity, which is part of the nervous system of our planet. In a deep sense, the Internet is an outer manifestation of this process and is connecting humanity in ways we still need to understand. What’s different now is that we have a whole generation, the millennial generation, that grew up with the Internet. They see no borders, language is being translated, their world is no longer the narrow world of their parents, who only had relationships with people in their neighborhood. Now here’s something important to understand. The millennial kids are looking at a world in which they have inherited massive debt, and education based on a world that’s quickly disappearing, parents who had a five-car garage and they share an apartment with three other people because they can’t afford an apartment of their own, and they feel left out, completely disenfranchised from society. Now here’s an important fact: The government can only stand in regard to how many people support it.
LG: In a sense, the old system has built into it the seeds of its own destruction. Even the Internet, which our government, corporations, and educational systems have created, is the very tool that’s being used for dismantling outdated, dysfunctional, and corrupt systems.
BL: Exactly, and if you say to millennials, “Hey, the stock market is going to crash,” they could not care less because they, along with most of the people on the planet right now, are not invested in the old system. Here’s an interesting point: The millennials are the key to change and for the most part they don’t see that right now; they are just starting to realize how powerful they are and actually have very little to lose by changing the system to something entirely different.
Bruce and I talked for another hour on topics important to our survival as a species—everything from Copernicus, Newton, and Einstein to Jesus and the Buddha. Here’s my question for anyone reading this: “What will it take to bring in a new consciousness, a new vision on this planet?” Maybe we’re doing it by simply “Questioning the answers we’ve been given for centuries that no longer serve us.”

Comments Off on Standing Rock and the Dakota Access Pipeline
By Rahasya Poe
It’s not necessarily because I’m 25 percent Cherokee, or even that it’s the right thing to do, which it is, that I’m throwing in my two cents on this issue. I was thinking of writing this article anyway, but it was confirmed when I started reading what traditional news media was saying. An example is CNN. Here’s one of its reasons that the protest should be abandoned: It interviewed Robert “Fool” Bear, who lives in a nearby town called Cannon Ball, where some of the inhabitants (840 population) sometimes have to drive 40 miles out of their way because of the protests. He said this at the same time he said, “It irks me. People are here from all over the world; if they could come from other planets, I think they would.” they also said that Robert Fool said, “The presence of all [these] people has become a downright nuisance to his community.”
CNN goes on to say that Robert Fool also said, “If he [Dave Archambault II, the Standing Rock Sioux chairman] had any balls, he’d tell [the protesters] to go home.” And then CNN validated this by saying that Bear is not alone in feeling this way: “Two women who listen in as he talks keep nodding in agreement, but they don’t want to speak.” As further proof, they said a man who lives 10 miles away and who doesn’t want to be named actually looks forward to the pipeline. Then there’s Carl Bruce, a Standing Rock Sioux who said, “The pipeline doesn’t matter. If it breaks, I’ll just work around it.” Carl goes on to say that if a break did occur, “Oh hell, I can move north of the break and get my water over there.” 
I’m sure that there are mixed feelings about this situation but as always, we are not getting a “fair and balanced” report here. Ask yourself this: “Would you want 470,000 barrels of crude oil a day to flow through your main drinking water supply in pipelines that are known to leak after a few years or less?”
Books could be written on the misinformation, disinformation, and the deception going on but let’s take this in another direction called reality. How much crude oil is in the Bakken shale oil fields? Continental Resources President Rick Bott told the IHS CERA Week energy summit in Houston (2014) that the Bakken holds nearly a 900 billion–barrel potential but when that fact was questioned later by a senior petroleum analyst, Gregg Laskoski, it turned out to be 32 billion barrels of oil. Then there’s the U.S. Geological Survey, which calls it “the largest continuous oil accumulation it has ever assessed.” 
The estimate of how much oil there is ranges from 7.4 billion barrels to 900 billion barrels. Are you confused yet? Let’s “follow the money.” The pipeline is going to cost $3.7 billion and whenever we start talking about investments this large, we always need to question it because greed can always become a factor. Of course proponents say that it will generate $55 million a year for schools, roads, and so on. But I think we can all remember how we were told that our education problems would be solved by allowing casinos to operate in California a few years ago … where is that money? The statistics sound pretty good, although they are very vague and confusing. 
When I started doing research for this article, it’s true, there’s a lot of ‘fake news’ out there along with our traditional news media that simply aren’t doing their jobs according to most public opinion polls. So what can we do when nothing makes sense and you can’t trust what you are being told? I can only say what I do and it’s what all of us can do; we all know what is right and what is wrong. That’s really not the problem if we have the facts; the problem is doing the right thing without regard to the bottom line or personal comfort. I know a few things for sure:
We should be spending money on alternative renewable energy sources.
Everyone has the right to protect his or her land, water, and air.
Future generations are just as important as this generation.
The very word secrecy is repugnant in a free and open society.—JFK
Everyone needs to stay away from polarized opinions and be better informed.
We all need to push to get our news media to start doing investigative journalism again.
I am sorry if you think I haven’t given you a clear answer on this but in today’s world clear answers are difficult to come by, which is why we sometimes need to follow our hearts. It is good to know that the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers denied the easement over the lake in December 2016. One last thought: If we let the “powers that be” trample yet once again on Native Americans’ rights, we need to consider more than the immorality of it and how it looks to the rest of the world. We need to take very seriously the question: “Who’s next?” The onlything that really put a temporary halt to this was when over 4,000 veterans showed up as a human shield to protect the protestors. This is not over, which is why we are still putting attention on this.
Comments Off on The Speed and Complexity of Change
By Rahasya Poe
Change—it is the one thing we have always been able to count on. But the times are different now, and the complexity and the speed of change are growing exponentially. We were on fairly firm ground until recently, when the advancement of technology reached a point at which technology itself is creating even more advanced technology; without supercomputers a lot of what we see, and don’t see, happening in our world would not be possible.
Some may ask, “If change is inevitable, why even be concerned? Whatever is going to happen is going to happen no matter what we do or don’t do.” Well, that’s true to a certain extent, but picture it this way: We are driving down the road and the accelerator gets stuck and we are going faster and faster. One could say, “Whatever is going to happen is going to happen,” and let go of the steering wheel, and that driver would, to a certain extent, be correct. But it would also be to everyone’s advantage to at least take hold of the wheel, watch the road, and have some control over where we are headed, even if it is way too fast.
But here’s the real problem as I see it. Along with the rapid advance of technology, which has brought us unprecedented advancement in the medical world with technology that can make all of us a lot safer, there are other areas of advancement that consistently slide in under the watchful eyes of most of us. Take Senate Bill HR 4919, which was passed in July 2016 as a “companion” bill. This will allow tracking devices (RF devices—microchips) to be put into people with autism, mental disabilities, Alzheimer’s, bipolar disorder, and a list of other developmental disabilities. And as with most new laws that are kept out of the media, we have to ask why? The red flag for me popped up when I looked deeper and found that this will be under the scrutiny and control of the attorney general and the Department of Justice and state and local law-enforcement agencies instead of the Health and Human Services.  To put this in a larger context, think about this: The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention says “about” 1 in 68 children has been identified with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). From 2006 to 2008, about 1 in 6 children in the United States had a developmental disability. Some verifiable statistics say these estimates are much higher now. During the 1970s and ’80s 1 in 2,000 children was diagnosed with autism. Without getting into what’s causing autism, which is being researched extensively at the moment, one has to ask what this means to almost 4 million autistic children: Are we going to start “chipping” all of them now? This in itself may or may not be a good thing, but we need transparency with programs such as this and we don’t have it.
I bring this up because this and so many other things are happening under the radar. Actually, the only thing we hear about are the events where the people make so much noise that the news finally hits the corporate media outlets, for example the DAPL-Standing Rock protests, but even then it’s so distorted that it usually lacks credibility. (Read my article in this issue)
As some of you know, I have a segment on the Golden Road television show called “Rahasya Uncensored,” in which I bring things such as this to the attention of the public. It’s never my intention to tell others “what” to think; I am thoroughly satisfied if I can give them enough facts to get them “to” think. If there’s one thing I believe in, it would be the power of the human spirit to make good choices, but only if they have good information.
My last show was an interview with Dane Wigington of GeoEngineeringWatch.org on climate change and how almost all of the climate engineering programs (more than 50 programs at the moment) are going on without the attention or even knowledge of the vast majority of the uninformed public. If you go to my Facebook page (www.Facebook.com/rahasya.uncensored) you will see that most people are starting to wake up to this and many other stories we’ve been fed through the years. As John Adams once said, “Facts can be stubborn things.” You can also visit www.RahasyaUncensored.com to watch the edited versions of my “Rahasya Uncensored” segments on Channel 11, which is out of Chico but broadcasts in five counties. Most people are craving information because we are waking up to the fact that something is terribly wrong and we are not being told the truth. The way I see it is that it’s all of our duties to “Question their answers” and demand the truth. I will post a very interesting Ted Talk on my website in which a former CBS reporter exposes everything from media lies, Internet shills, and astroturfing. It’s important to also realize that there are a lot of disinformation websites and You Tubes out there so always use discernment when looking for truth.
We do have some great technology also
As a final thought I would like to thank the readers of Lotus Guide for their support and feedback on the “Rahasya Uncensored” column and the fact that I am touching upon some issues that so many of us are thinking about. The truth is, I would rather be writing about how I see that we are approaching a time when something amazing is on the horizon, something beyond our human understanding. This isn’t to say that it won’t be challenging, but if we can all pay attention and do what we can to steer us in the best possible direction, we can avert a mountain of suffering for the vast majority of people on this planet. The communities we live in here in Northern California have their problems but for the most part, we have some incredible people and organizations working in the background like hospitals and emergency medical services to care for us when we are sick or injured, the local police and fire departments that protect us when we are threatened, and basically put the fires out in our lives, both figuratively and actually. So when you finish with this article take a moment and feel gratitude that we still live in a great country where we still have the right to say what’s on our minds and disagree publically without “too much” fear of retribution. Yes, it’s true, I am a realist, but I’m also a dreamer, so it’s nice to know that I’m not the only one, as John Lennon once said.
My next TV show will be January 22, 2017 at 6pm on a Sunday on Channel 11 and some cable networks. Read the article on Golden Road television in this magazine for more information.
Comments Off on Spiritual Activist Radio Donations
In today’s world of Misinformation and Disinformation we need to be wise and use discernment whenever we read or watch the news. I go to great lengths to fact check anything I talk about or write about so I can bring you the best information possible; not to tell you what to think, but simply to get you to think armed with good solid information with no agenda behind it.
To make this happen I must stay independent of advertisement so your “Tax Free Donations” is what makes that happen. You can get a glimpse of what I’ve been doing on my You Tube Channel (www.YouTube.com/lotusguide)
If you aren’t impressed enough to make a Donation yet, then take a look at the magazine my wife, Dhara, and I have created here in northern CA that is over 12 years old now, www.LotusGuide.com
You might also want to check out my Rahasya Uncensored TV segment I have on the Golden Road Television Show where I also do interviews and talks about world and local affairs, www.rahasyauncensored.com
Why do I call the show “Spiritual Activist”? Because in today’s world we need to start looking at the solutions to our problems from a higher level of consciousness because that’s where the lasting solutions will be found. That’s the “Spiritual” aspect. But then we need to take action in the world we live in and stop hiding and just hoping things will get better, that’s where the “Activist” aspect comes in.

Comments Off on Power vs. Force—What’s the Difference?
Power vs. Force—What’s the Difference?
By Rahasya Poe
OK … those of you who have been reading my articles in the past few issues know that I’ve touched on everything from the misinformation and disinformation being pumped out by corporate think tanks, and government conspiracies, ancient prophecies, and even UFOs and extraterrestrials, all of which have a mountain of supporting evidence. But now it’s time to take things to another level and I will attempt to keep our feet on the ground so those of you who are not necessarily in the “choir” will be able to digest this information. But you need to know the difference between Power and Force.
So before I get into this, I need to create a firm foundation to stand on because we will be looking at a world that is multidimensional and very complex. In David Hawkins’ book, Power vs. Force, he equates “Force” as something we have used throughout history as competition, manipulation, violence, control, and coercion. As we look at our world, we can see clearly that this has been the normal way of life, especially in politics. Most of our presidents, emperors, dictators, and yes, our priests and religious leaders, have all used this type of energy. They also wrote our history books to cover this up and burned anything that pulled back the curtain.
However, through time, we, or most of us, have evolved and are stepping into our “Power,” which is … everywhere; we live in it, breathe it, and we are “it.” The tools we use when we are in our power are cooperation, empathy, reason, tolerance, understanding, and love. This is why young adults and kids have such a tough time with the 12-step program and specifically the first step, in which you have to give away all your power. They have evolved and are coming in on frequencies that demand that they step into their power so they can change the world by changing and evolving themselves. (Read The 12 Spiritual Laws of Recovery & Meditations for the 12 Step Program by Rahasya Poe & Dhara Lemos.)
So you might be saying, “But how can things like compassion and love [power] stand up against competition and treachery [force] and the hardened foundations of our world?” Think on this, and observe what happens time and time again when power, for example a hurricane, meets up with all the technology and force we can throw at it through the inferior efforts of humanity. Nature will always have the last word … or laugh.
At this point you are probably thinking, “But wait a minute, look at the world’s military, the corporate media, and politics … aren’t they in control?” It may appear that way but look more closely. While we are standing up to things such as GMO foods, climate engineering, mandatory vaccinations and political corruption with our admittedly sometimes-feeble attempts to change things, there are forces far beyond this planetary realm working from the top down.
Do you think it’s just a coincidence that we have suddenly developed a way to communicate, the Internet, that’s not dependent on traditional media? Don’t you think it’s strange that we have politicians who are falling apart mentally and physically and being exposed on every level as sociopaths and criminals? And for centuries the “forceful” people in charge have been able to hide their pedophiliac needs for young children, but their dark world cannot exist when exposed to the light of consciousness and love from not only within us, but from far beyond us.
Deep Underground Military Bases
Some of you who know me are probably smiling because you know where I’m going with this, but for those who are wondering … fasten your seat belts.
And this is how they do it-7 Miles Per Day
Do you know that we are almost $90 trillion in debt and that most of that debt is unaccounted for and lost in black ops and operations such as D.U.M.B. (deep underground military bases) and the “not-so-” secret space programs? It’s been statements by arrogant “forceful” people such as Alan Greenspan that have global financial institutions on the verge of collapse. He told Congress, “The United States can pay any debt it has because we can always print money to do that. So there is zero possibility of default.”Don’t they realize the world is listening?
“I thought about the core tools we EHMs (economic hit men) used in my day: false economics that included distorted financial analyses, inflated projections, and rigged accounting books; secrecy, deception, threats, bribes, and extortion; false promises that we never intended to honor; and enslavement through debt and fear. These same tools are used today.”
—John Perkins, The New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
Then we have people such as Catherine Austin Fitts, a former Wall Street banker and former assistant secretary of Housing and Federal Housing commissioner at the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development in the first Bush Administration, who has come to the conclusion that the global debt may very well be owned by off-planet entities who operate planet Earth as a real estate investment and use that debt to control our destiny.
“Let me bring it down to some of the important questions you have to ask if you ask the question, ‘Is this an open or closed economy.’ I got great statistics on who would issue debt, but for the life of me I couldn’t get great statistics on who owned it. I don’t know who owns it. I know they control. And they control through the debt because that’s how you control a company [nations] in invisible ways, by controlling through the debt. Who owns the debt? Is it humans, or is it somebody else?”
~Catherine Austin Fitts
Catherine Austin Fitts also brings up an important and interesting point; if no human being on the planet can be shown to own the debt and it is the root cause of war and suffering to almost every human being on this planet, one has to ask, “If all it would take is a couple of key strokes to zero this debt out, who among “us” would not do this?”
I’ve talked with people who were ministers of defense, congressmen, and high-ranking military personnel and they all say the same thing: The people we think are in control are nothing more than puppets. I know how this sounds and believe me, I have second thoughts writing about things such as this every time I do, but if we don’t start opening up to the idea that we are not alone I fear the wake-up call might be too much for many of us to handle. Put it this way: I have talked with and interviewed many skeptics on this subject only to find out that they have never looked at the evidence. Through the years I have watched those same skeptics become totally involved in the movement to disclose.
Most people simply do not realize how serious almost every country on this planet is when it comes to this subject. The United Nations has already appointed astrophysicist Mazlan Othman as the official Earth Ambassador for contact with aliens, her official title is “Extraterrestrial Ambassador.”
This subject obviously goes far beyond the scope of this article so I would like to implore you to do some research on your own because when you do, you will see a much deeper meaning under the headlines than most people see and it starts to make a little more sense. And stop buying into the force that we traditionally use and that is used against us, and step into the power that surrounds us, above and below, and be part of something amazing that is happening, a very sacred reality emerging as a new era of human conscious evolution. We. Are. Not. Alone. So the question becomes, “What do they want and why are they here?” The answer to this question will determine the future of the human race.

Every once in a while I feel compelled to reach out and connect with what I see as the fastest-growing segment of our population. Now I have to admit, it would be very easy at this point to get into how other countries, such as Portugal for instance, have decriminalized drug use and have substantially fewer violent crimes associated with drugs and far less usage … but then again they don’t have a billion-dollar prison industry to support like we do and pharmaceutical companies putting millions into the pockets of their politicians, but this is a subject for another time. This is a spiritual crisis.
(I really need to add something here; the underlying cause of a lot of addiction is the fact that it’s actually being supported by our government. For instance, our soldiers are guarding the poppy fields in Afganistan (Over 93% of the worlds heroine comes from Afganistan, who do you think is making all that money?) as you read this. many people know this but never really think about the fact that if we are guarding it, who do you think is smuggling the heroine into our country? And if we are smuggling it in, as we were doing all the way back to Viet Nam war days and the drug cartel/CIA days, then we are also setting up distribution chains for the drugs to hit the streets. No one wants to admit that their government is doing such things, but this little fact should help…it’s not our government and hasn’t been for many years. It belongs to secret organizations and breakaway aspects of the CIA, the FBI, FDA, CDC, NSA and almost every international corporation and banking cartel there is. You may be asking, “Isn’t this a harsh indictment?” My answer is no, actually the truth gets far worse. If we want Justice we must learn to respell it because it should be spelled “Just-Us.” Did I mention that YOU are paying for this?)
And believe it or not, this article isn’t about the millions of people on drugs, legal and illegal, who are suffering all over the world and who are in the grip of a system that is dysfunctional, to say the least. This is about stepping back and taking a realistic look at “why” we go down this path in the first place, because the answer to this question is also the answer to “how” we stop going down that path (this statement is at the heart of this article so remember it). I think most anyone who gives this subject some honest thought has wondered why some substances that are relatively harmless with no lasting side effects are illegal while others, such as alcohol, pharmaceutical drugs, and tobacco, are legal and actually drive a lot of our political machinery. It becomes obvious that the laws are not meant to protect us; they are meant for something else entirely with respect to drug use. This too is a subject for another time.
Now we are getting close to the “why” in relation to drug use. The answer seems to have been lost in the legal system with a barrage of disinformation and misinformation. Meanwhile, we have millions of people, young and old, who are suffering while the rest of us stand back and legislate laws, judge, and separate ourselves from one basic truth: Human beings are adventurous souls and we should have the right to explore our own consciousness as long as we are not harming another person. I think we all intuitively know this and as adventurous souls we explore the most amazing thing in the known universe … our conscious awareness.
Drugs & The Heart of the Matter-Consciousness
So here we are at the heart of the matter, consciousness. A number of years ago I wrote a book along with my wife, Dhara, specifically for young people. I was a drug counselor for adolescents going through drug recovery in San Diego. As a house manager, I had some freedom to really get to know the boys coming through the program and in the beginning it was my plan to impart all of my knowledge and wisdom to them. Well, I quickly learned that it was I who was being taught. Asking these kids why they took drugs was like asking a fish what it felt like to be wet; in the world they grew up in, they had no normal frame of reference to compare their lives to.
The Final STEP-Freedom
It was no surprise that they weren’t resonating with the 12-step program, a program that was created back in the ’30s for alcoholics hanging on to the last remnants of reality. I remember Ram Dass saying that he worked with the program for many years and noticed one big problem: There was no way out. Even John Bradshaw, a well-known supporter of the 12-step program, said that after almost 30 years of being in it, he had to admit that the greatest value was as a resocialization step for addicts wanting to get back in society but that it was unfortunate that there was no final step to exit the program. I will always remember this young kid in the recovery program who was sitting with the other five kids I had taken to a 12-step meeting one evening. He was quietly listening to Joe: “Hello, my name is Joe. I’m an alcoholic; I’ve been sober for 22 years, three months, two weeks, and one day.” It was at that point that the kid stood up and screamed and ran out. I followed him out and asked him, “What’s wrong?” He said, “If this is what I need to do for the next 22 years to stay clean I can tell you right now … it’s not me!” The next day in group we all talked about it and I found that every kid who came through the program sincerely felt the same way.
What was the biggest complaint? The first step: “We admitted we were powerless over alcohol/drugs and that our lives had become unmanageable.” I know a lot of you 12-steppers are going to go crazy right about now, but hear me out. The reason our lives became unmanageable in the first place was because we “gave” our power away to drugs and/or alcohol. As a society we have been indoctrinated into giving our power away to local and world leaders, churches, schools, doctors, institutions, governments, you name it. But something amazing has been happening right under our noses and most of us, especially the older generations, have missed it. An awakening is happening and with that comes the power to change things, including our lives.
The Big Difference Between ‘Fault’ & ‘Problem’
Something else I noticed in almost every client who came through the program was the tendency to “blame” and place fault on the world around them, which made sense because everyone from the parents to the courts was blaming them. It was easy to get them going in the “blame game” in group sessions; I would let them get all worked up and at the height of the conversation I would ask them a question, “OK, settle down for a second and let me ask you something. If I made all of you take off your clothes and shoes, tied you up, threw you in the van, and took you out in the desert 500 miles from nowhere with no water or food and kicked you out of the van and drove off, whose fault is it that you are there?” Of course there was an immediate response, “It’s not our fault, it’s your ‘!@#*ing’ fault, Rahasya.” Then I would quietly sit back and ask the next question, “Yes, it is my fault … but whose problem is it?” The whole room would get quiet and they would “always” look at each other for group coherence and say, “It’s our problem.” This is why asking them to give their power away to what they see as the very system that put them in this position is completely out of the question, but getting them to realize they have a problem and take responsibility for it is within the realm of possibility.
Just a Different Form of Slavery
For years I experimented with all sorts of drugs and it was a long, strange trip indeed. When it came time to quit, I realized that giving away what power I had left was not an option for me, so I embraced my addiction as a transformative tool and it was ultimately a meditation that I learned that brought me out of it and showed me another aspect of consciousness. This is why the 1st Spiritual Law in our book is “What you resist, persists.” It was through meditation that I learned about the truth, which was what I was actually looking for in drugs … an expanded consciousness, an awareness of a deeper aspect of being.
No matter what we are declaring war on—poverty, terrorism, or drugs—it simply does not work. So it’s time to think out of the box, take charge of our lives, be responsible, and recognize that we are powerful spiritual beings exploring every avenue of consciousness. It was a lifetime of experience and my short career as a drug counselor that provided the material for this book. And since it was a particular meditation practice that brought me out of it, Dhara’s contribution of developing a meditation for each step was invaluable. She brought more than 25 years of meditative experience to this project.
Here are the links that I was talking about in the Print version.
Brain Restoration has been show to have dramatic affects when it comes to addiction. If you’ve read our book, The 12 Spiritual Laws of Recovery & Meditations For the 12 Step Program you know that I covered this with something called “The Bomb” which is a strong megadose of vitamins and nutrients. The reason for this is because I found that many people go back to drug use simply to feel better so the quicker you can get healthy, the better. CLICK HERE for BRAIN RESTORATION INFO
The Wildness of Children: If you take the time to read this article you will quickly realize that one of the biggest contributors to addiction is not the drugs, it’s everything from the environment and civilization to us. This is why kids must take back their power and we must support that process. There has been research that clearly shows that rats that are addicted will break their addiction if they are put in an environment that’s 200 times larger than their cages, has fun toys to play with, and the opportunity to fornicate 🙂 If you are a teacher or a parent I highly recommend that you read this: CLICK HERE

Here is the rest of my interview with David Sereda on…well, almost everything.
You can watch my first Rahasya Uncensored segment on the Golden Road Radio/TV show that will air every 3 weeks on Sundays at 6pm in 7 counties. Here’s an edited down version of my first show. My next show will be December 11th, 2016.
Update: Jan 22nd will be my next show on Channel 11 with an interview with Dr. Bruce Lipton
Here’s an edited version of my 2nd Rahasya Uncensored show on the Golden Road Television show that airs in 5 counties and some cable networks.
Here is an interview I did with Dane Wigington of GeoEngineeringWatch on Dec 1st, 2016 and will be the meat of my Rahasya Uncensored Show on Dec 11th
This page is the beginning of me, Rahasya, telling it like it is, which is not meant for everyone in today’s sedated society. But if you are reading this you should bookmark this page and come back frequently because this is the “Uncensored” section of Lotus Guide where we are allowed to do that lost trait called “Thinking for Ourselves.”
I’m in the process of starting an Internet Live Radio show that will be a community supported non-profit endeavor once I can get my non-profit status. To talk about the things that need to be talked about I need to be free of commitments to advertisers so it will be entirely a non-profit mission driven show. The show will be called “Spiritual Activist Radio with Rahasya…Uncensored.” The reason for this is because after many years of looking, and dealing, with life’s problems I have come to understand that they are by their very nature, “Spiritual” problems which means that the solutions need to be Spiritual solutions. When I use the word ‘Spiritual’ I could just as easily use the word “Consciousness.”
Albert Einstein once said that we will never find the solutions from the same level of thinking/consciousness that created the problems. I’m sure you have noticed that no matter what we do we end up making it worse or the situations connected to it worse. Over the past few centuries the only thing we have progressed at is to come up with more efficient ways to annihilate each other and destroy the world around us. Martin Luther King once said that “We have guided missiles and misguided souls.”
We have cut ourselves off from the very nature around us that supports us and we need to reconnect. Without an evolution of consciousness…this will not happen. The answers we seek lie within.
So we all need to be a “Spiritual Activist” which simply means that we need to take action in the world around us using a higher level of awareness. Our world leaders, sorry to say, are on legal and illegal drugs and for the most part are sociopaths making decisions about our lives. It’s time to Wake Up from THEIR madness!

You are not alone when you get this feeling that something amazing is happening even in the face of all the chaos and destruction in our world. Our strength lies in our ability to come together with other like-minds and together we can and will change the world…Join Me and millions of others.
“Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness.”

Before we get going I want to share something personal with you in the hope that it may help somehow when processing information about what’s going on in our world. I think this is the key for us to evolve to greatness; there may be other keys but there’s only one lock that we need to open to envision and create a new world.
This is something that happened to me when I was around seven years old and I’m sure it’s happened to many of us, but the subtle nuance of what happened usually goes unnoticed. I was learning to ride my bicycle and was constantly falling; first to the left, then to the right; all the time making mental adjustments trying to avoid the inevitable. These were rational decisions; if I’m falling to the left then I need to pull to the right. It was awkward and seldom successful. But then…something happened. I was effortlessly riding my bicycle and what was once inevitable, falling, was now impossible…I ‘couldn’t fall. What just happened? It took me years to figure it out but what happened was a new level of consciousness, new neural networks, a ‘Body-Mind’ connection that was beyond my normal awareness.
So here we are today, left and right, up and down, good and evil, Republican’s and Democrats, Communism and Fascism, and the list goes on. First we pull to the left, then we over correct and pull to the right only to fall down time and time again. But we are learning to ride/live in a polarized world of opposites. But what if we are unknowingly searching for a new connectivity, not of ‘Body-Mind’ but of ‘Body-Mind-Spirit?’ If this is the shift we are talking about it will not come from being totally blind to the opposites in our world. It will come about by holding fast to our vision and beliefs of a better world and at the same time dealing with the world we live in with all of its evils, dangers, and complexities.
Could this be the key to ‘Evolving To Greatness’? I meet many people who are immersed in fear and depression when they look at what’s going on in our world. Why? Because they fail to see the greatness of the human spirit and the power of the human mind when awakened. Then I also see some of my ‘spiritual friends’ who are oblivious to the world around them and are blinded by the idea that if they look at what’s going on in the world they will ‘attract’ it to them. I know I’m fighting centuries of indoctrination but ‘Faith’ should not be ‘blind.’ We are meant for something greater that staying ignorant in order to feel blissful.
I hope what you just read, in a Heinleinian sense, can be “Grokked’ because it will help to keep you from falling to the left in fear or to the right in blindness. So…that being said, let’s go play in the world of illusion filled with…everything.
We all know in the Wizard Of Oz story when she pulled back the curtain only to find a frightened aging old man with his hands on the levers that were creating the fear in the Land of Oz. We are in much the same situation in today’s world except we have different names for everything. The aging old man is the men and organizations that work in secret behind our government, actually, the global governments. This has been known for many years, Theodore Roosevelt once said, “Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people” The truth be told, they, along with our apathy and complacency, have created a system that is unstable, dangerous and is collapsing right before our eyes from it’s own internal weight of corruption. That’s why people such a retired U.S. Army Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, who spent years as an assistant to Secretary of State Colin Powell during both Bush administrations and was the national security advisor to the Reagan administration, are speaking out. He plainly states that the corruption inside the establishment, and the corporate interests driving foreign policy, make what is going on “unfixable.”
As I was sitting back wondering what is the most important topic to write about I thought of all the usual suspects; GMO foods, vaccinations (especially mandatory vaccinations), geoengineering and chemtrails, the electro-magnetic frequencies that bombard our airwaves, water/air/and land pollution, over-population, global debt, drug cartels encroaching in on us at our borders, human trafficking…OK, I’m sure you get the message. There’s no shortage of what to write about because the global problem is ‘systemic’ at its very core.
So you may ask, why in the world would I write about something like UFO’s and the extra-terrestrial interference into world affairs knowing it would diminish my credibility by doing so? The answer is simple…this could be the common denominator that links so many of today’s problems that on the surface look unconnected. I won’t get into this particular aspect because there are too many unknowns and it reeks of conspiracy disinformation and misinformation. So let’s talk about what we do know and is based on facts from well-established people from all walks of life. You might be saying, “But wait, I haven’t heard about this.” Of course you haven’t heard about this…you live in the United States of Secrecy.
So you may be asking, where is this evidence? Good question, and please, keep asking ‘good’ questions. I would like to tell you about a little trip to the UFO Congress that my wife, Dhara, and I took in February 2016. I will post this article along with some of the interviews I did at www.lotusguide.com/ufo-congress-2016.
Then there was Emily, the young woman, who spoke for the first time about her encounter to an audience. Along with over one hundred other young children ages six through eleven or so, who went to a Christian missionary school in Ruwa, Zimbabwe, watched a circular craft come down, land and two alien beings walked over and communicated telepathically with her and some of the other children. Later, Dr. John Mack, a Harvard psychiatrist, and the BBC came to document it and aired it on TV. The BBC said that the conclusion they had to come to is that it either happened the way everyone there said it did, or it’s the strangest unsolved mystery they have ever encountered. Oh…you say you didn’t hear about this; of course not, you weren’t supposed to and you live in the United States where our media is dominated by the men behind the curtain.
Dhara, Emily and Rahasya
Then there was Sasha who has researched the Sumerian Clay Tablets and pre-Sumerian societies. He has taken Zecharia Sitchins’ work to a whole new level and corrected and expanded on many of his interpretations. If you aren’t familiar with the ancient ‘god’s’ called the Anunnaki, you should because this information will unravel traditional religion’s as we’ve know them for centuries. Many religious organizations, especially the Catholic Church, are already positioning themselves to adapt to this information as it gets disclosed. You can watch my interview with him below.
Nick Pope-England’s Minister of Defense
I talked with Nick Pope, who was the Minister of Defense for England and handled their UFO investigations, yes, they still investigate even after the United States closed the Blue Book Project in 1968 saying that they no longer were interested in UFO’s and aliens. Nick was telling me that England along with many other countries like France, Belgium, Brazil, Mexico, Canada, Sweden, Russia, Germany, Ireland, and even the Vatican City are making their evidence public, or at least a good portion of it. The United Nations even appointed an ambassador (Mazian Othman) to speak for planet Earth when the time comes.
While at the UFO Congress I spoke with high-ranking military personnel, scientists and research investigators, and many contactee’s and experiencer’s who are all telling the same basic story which is that we are being visited by many different advanced races and have been for many centuries. Jacque Valle who is a long time researcher and has worked with people like J. Allen Hynek told us that if he had to make his best guess at what’s really going on it would be that we are being visited by inter-dimensional beings on a regular basis and it would account for many of the myths and folklore throughout history. By the way, J. Allen Hynek was hired by our government to head the Blue Book Project because he was a true skeptic; trouble is, after a couple of years of investigating he became a true believer. The same is true with Dr. John Mack, the Harvard psychiatrist who started researching people who said they had been abducted. He started with the notion that there had to be an underlying psychological reason for their ‘hallucinations.’ He came to the conclusion that they were having actual interactions with alien beings on some level of reality. This was a disastrous stand for him to take in the academic community, so he had nothing to gain and everything to lose.
It’s a well-known fact, or it should be, that NASA has systematically airbrushed objects from their lunar missions. Why? Are there ‘rock’s they don’t want us to see? While at the conference I interviewed Frank Jacob who made the documentary Packing For Mars. I’ve heard about the Secret Space Program for years and now there are many whistleblowers telling us that our suspicions are correct…and then some. After all, where do you think trillions of dollars disappeared? I highly suggest ordering his DVD at www.PackingForMarsMovie.com.
I’m sure you see by now that this information touches on every aspect of human existence and the disclosure will be the greatest event in human history by far. It will affect every person on this planet now and for every future generation to come. It will rewrite religion, history, science, and most of all, it will change the perception of who we are and our place in the universe. This prospect alone is more than enough to keep most people from looking at this information; after all, we’ve always seen ourselves at the top of the food chain and the dominant species on this planet. What if we need to come to grips with the fact that there are species who are thousands, millions, or even billions of years more advanced than us?
There’s little doubt that the disclosure of this information will unravel almost every aspect of our reality. But think on this: If it’s true that “As Above, So Below” and life is but a dream, what happens as you are awakening from a dream? As you enter into your everyday awareness the dream disintegrates and you rise up in a new reality full of new wonders. Here’s my question: Could it be that we are awakening to a new level of consciousness and in the process observing that our present day reality no longer makes sense. The turmoil and apparent chaos that we see may be part of a natural evolution as we evolve to greatness, our next step in our eternal journey.
A final word for those who think we are in the ‘end times’ as talked about in the Bible. We were all taught that the word ‘Apocalypse’ meant the complete and catastrophic destruction of the earth. But the actual meaning from the ancient Greek translation of ‘apokálypsis’ is ‘a lifting of the veil’ meaning uncovering, or ‘pulling back the curtain’ so the truth can be seen clearly.

Professor Barnhardt: There must be alternatives. You must have some technology that could solve our problem.
Klaatu: Your problem is not technology. The problem is you. You lack the will to change.
Professor Barnhardt: Then help us change.
Klaatu: I cannot change your nature. You treat the world as you treat each other.
Professor Barnhardt: But every civilization reaches a crisis point eventually.
Klaatu: Most of them don’t make it.
Professor Barnhardt: Yours did. How?
Klaatu: Our sun was dying. We had to evolve in order to survive.
Professor Barnhardt: So it was only when your world was threated with destruction that you became what you are now.
Professor Barnhardt: Well that’s where we are. You say we’re on the brink of destruction and you’re right. But it’s only on the brink that people find the will to change. Only at the precipice do we evolve. This is our moment. Don’t take it from us, we are close to an answer.

So much politics surrounds this question that it takes a lot of investigation to get … well, let me be honest, “confused.” Saudi Arabia is thought to have a never-ending supply of oil, according to the Saudis, but many experts suspect that they are lying because they are in the planning stages of making solar energy account for 20 percent of their energy consumption … by the year 2032, which most see as too little too late. According to Nasser Qahtani, who is the vice governor of regulatory affairs for Saudi Arabia’s Electricity & Cogeneration Regulatory Authority, Saudi Arabia spends more than 10 percent of its GDP on subsidies for energy, which ends up promoting energy waste within the country. This equates to around $80 billion per year, which is more than a third of the kingdom’s entire budget. Obviously this is not a sustainable situation.
British Petroleum (BP), you know, the company that continually lies and seldom, if ever, takes responsibility for its accidents, says that we have 53 years left of reserve oil at today’s consumption rate. What’s strange is that BP says that as if it were a good thing because we have years before we really need to worry. It isn’t factoring in population growth or the fact that third world countries are on the fast track to “modernization,” which is an extremely misleading term.
I don’t have the space to really explain how insane all of the agencies and countries are when it comes to their estimates of oil reserves—let’s just say it is highly dependent on the politics of the day. There are a few facts I can see when it comes to oil.
We will destroy the ecosystem long before we run out of oil.
We will continue to trade blood for oil at an ever-increasing rate.
The global tension over this alone will most assuredly march us toward another world war from which we will not recover.
Global power will rest in the hands of the countries that embrace alternative energy sources and work toward sustainability on every level.
So, you may be asking, “Where does Science FACTion enter into this?” Simple. Believe it or not, we have the technology to solve our energy problems. The real question is do we have the will? There’s one obvious alternative energy source that is literally glaring at us every day, which is solar energy. At this point, solar is the most viable option because it’s something we can do as individuals, because as Margaret Mead once said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
So what’s the problem—let’s do it? A lot of people are doing their part. Elon Musk, CEO of TESLA Corporation, built a $5 billion battery plant in Nevada that will start producing some amazing batteries in 2016. Ken Grossman of Sierra Nevada Brewing Company spent $12 million on solar arrays and is more than 80 percent off grid with his alternative energy systems; schools and businesses and private homes are transitioning over little by little and private contractors are stepping up to the plate.
When I look at a country such as Germany that gets far less sun than we do and see what it has done, I have to tell you, the United States needs to catch up and we can help by keeping our eyes open and talking with people who know the business and the politics surrounding it. At this point, I’m out of my depth but there are local companies that can answer all your questions when it comes to saving on your electric bill. You might want to read Rich Varlinsky’s article in this issue about that very thing called Going Solar
