Writing in 1870, from Dresden, at the time of French-German war, Dostoevsky comments:
“Oh, God, I wish you knew what a revulsion had Europe produced in me during the last four years. We have so many stereotypes and fantasies about Europe. Isn’t this Russian a child (and almost all Russians are like that), who believes that the Prussians would win due to their education and schools. This is almost obscene. What kind of education is it, that robs and tortures, like the Attila’s horde? (Maybe even more than Attila)…
I read some letters of German soldiers from France to their mothers and fathers… Oh, God, what they write. How ill they are, how hungry… By the way, here is an observation: First, I did observe the patriotism of a crowd, but now it is gone. Those who got themselves into frenzy are professors, doctors, students, but not the common people. But professors are very proud of themselves. I meet plenty of them in a library. One, utterly gray and highly respected scholar, was screaming the other day: “Paris muss bombardiert sein!” That’s the results of their science and education. Well, if not education, then stupidity. Let them be scholars, they are terrible fools as well. Another observation: everybody here can read and write, but simultaneously they are ignorant, stupid, and given to the most base interests.”
Very sad observation, indeed. Common people know very well that hostility and war means hunger and deprivation for their sons. And they back off fast, once their children begin to suffer. But not the intellectual elite, who are more than happy to betray their calling and promote the most virulent hatred from the sidelines.

In case you didn’t know, the Arctic Ocean ice is going away at a rapid rate, and things could get dicey really quickly. Things like life as we know it.
Things like most of what we take for granted.
To whom it may concern: this is no longer a hypothetical.
Those who can, should be doing. Although 10 years ago would have been a better starting point. Alarmist? Naw…
Those who have been FB friends with me for a long time can perhaps recall my entreaties to prepare by getting relocated to a place that suits survival possibilities for ‘hard times’… Research is your friend. And water is life. Pay attention. ~ djo

December 28, 2017 Laura Eisenhower, Kevin and I both felt a core strength returning after taking the C60 Purple Power

* December 28, 2017 Laura Eisenhower
Kevin and I both felt a core strength returning after taking the C60 Purple Power. It has kept us very well so far through the cold winter weather and is also helping our nervous systems calm and it is boosting our energy levels. We look forward to taking more, as we both feel it is bringing us improvement on all fronts with things that have been a challenge physically."
Lots and lots of Love, Laura

[Recommended by my MD Physician]
As you know, on October 26, 2017 I began using the C-60 “BuckyBall” in C60Purplepower.com to help heal my vision, specifically after a DEW attack on July 30, 2017 that gave rise to a “stroke” in my right eye.
Prior to my starting C-60, my ophthalmologist had warned that my vision was deteriorating and that he might have to recommend me for cataract surgery after my next quarter visit, scheduled for December 18, 2017.
After my Dec. 18 visit, I was able to write you: “I just got out of my eye doctor appt. A-OK! Vision greatly improved since last quarterly visit. Danger of cataract surgery has disappeared. All good! No need for check-up for another 6 months.

The C60 in coconut oil has no taste that I could discern. I asked that the trial bottle not come with any description of possible effects, so I could sense it for myself. The first thing I noticed is the profound clarity of thought. It not only enhanced my short-term memory, but it also seemed to make it easier to think rapidly. I did not experience any jitters or a speeding up of my metabolism. I did not experience sleeplessness or discomfort. The C60 is a good supplement for making it easier to recall and express information. I don’t think I have gotten that benefit from anything else I have tried. Thank you so much."

AT 88 YEARS YOUNG I AM NOT EXACTLY “DANCING WITH THE STARS” ! MUST ADMIT I AM A BIT PEPPIER AND LAST THROUGH THE DAY LONGER. I WILL KEEP TAKING MY SPOONFUL EACH MORNING. I THINK I AM LESS FORGETFUL.

I received my C60 Purple Power early October, and literally as I was beginning a cold that I could tell would be a doosy! I’ve had colds like this before, and they normally last 8-10 days, with a bad cough, body aches and a sinus infection. I thought ‘well, now we shall see if this miracle elixir really works!’ I was badly needing the cold to end as I was leaving on a much anticipated trip in 7 days, and so thrilled to see that the main symptoms of my cold were gone in 3 days! I had the residual sniffles and coughs, but NOT the body aches, hacking cough and total weariness that I would normally have had for another week. I am happy to testify that C60 works, and although it does all kinds of wonderful things, most people would be happy if it just ended their colds that quickly!

Right now, I can say that I feel better than I have in a long time. My energy level is way up and my mental clarity is so much better. I haven’t been taking it long but I expect to just feel better and better. I have noticed my legs cramps have dissipated as well. It works on so many levels. You don’t think of all the ways until one day you think, "hey. I don’t have ‘such and such’ anymore. My husband will be joining me on this journey as well as soon as he gets through some personal medical issues. I will def do a follow-up statement after a while

Thank you scientist Ken! I was able to go back to work as a massage therapist and got my life back together after taking C60 for a few weeks, and now I’m pain free on my joints and muscles, feeling happier and my brain is sharper. I’m 52, I love C60 and I’ll take it for the rest of my life! I’m eternally grateful to you. Thanks Patty! Great interview. Much love to you from Maui, Aloha.

I received the C60 Purple Power as a gift, and after only a few weeks have noticed a marked decrease in my allergies; an increase and stability in my energy over the day; skin that was threatened by pre-cancerous red spots is healing and becoming smooth and clear; better sleep and much greater ability to remember my dreams; and an improvement in my eyesight. I’m going to keep going with it and see.

A friend recently gifted me a bottle of C60 Purple Power. I’ve been taking 1 tablespoon in the morning for over 90 days now. I’ve noticed my usual symptoms of PMS have disappeared. I haven’t had any cramps since taking C60 and any hormonally induced mood swings I previously experienced, have completely leveled out. I’m no longer experiencing emotional highs and lows during the month — my mood feels consistent and stable. With C60, I’ve noticed I feel emotionally stable and balanced, I have a general sense of well being and on most days, I feel very optimistic.

Bike trip on Pike’s Peak with Brandon

Bike trip on Pike’s Peak with Brandon. You’d think it would all be down hill, but there are 2 locations going down where the road goes upward, and steeply. One is near the top at about 14,000 ft. Afraid of looking and being old, I pedaled the bike up that! All the way to the top! OMG! I was 52, haven’t rode in years, smoked cigarettes for some 35 years, just recently had quit, 14,000 ft, and I did it!! Then I had to stop and wait for everyone else because everyone else got off and walked up. Everyone including the thrill seekers in their 20’s who must have been panting away as they walked their bikes up, watching and thinking "Whoa! Look at that old dude go!" "I’ll bet he ends up needing an ambulance!" There was a moral to this story. It’s great to kick ass! But don’t be stupid.

Even Muong people are divided into four main Muongs, having certain autonomy in each place, making it somewhat confined.

What if relationship was a practice, and intimacy was by design? TODAY at 3pm PST I’ll continue that thread by speaking on “The Trap of Modern Day Romance” on The Becoming Love Telesummit, hosted by Tamala Baldwin.
What I’ve found along my personal and professional path is that people who are drawn towards spiritual growth feel limited by the box that society has created for what it means to be in “romantic relationship”. We desire a new way to engage in intimacy and connection where we don’t have to shut down aspects of who we are to experience true fulfillment in relationship.
Register for free at www.becomingloveproject.com and tune LIVE at 3pm PST as I wax poetic about a new model for intimate relationship.

TONIGHT from 7:30-9:30pm at Heartspace Studios Fairfax, I’ll be hosting Essential Intimacy: An Evening of Authentic Connection Games

TONIGHT from 7:30-9:30pm at Heartspace Studios Fairfax, I’ll be hosting Essential Intimacy: An Evening of Authentic Connection Games. (And FYI, It will be the last in-person event I hold in the Bay Area for several months).
✨This gathering is a place to come and practice removing the masks that we’ve been conditioned to wear by society–telling us who to be and how to be in order to experience the love and connection we’re yearning for.
✨It’s a place to explore vulnerability, judgment, and desire, all within a safe and structured container of love and approval for who you truly are.
✨I understand that this work can be scary, confronting, or overwhelming at times–I get it. One secret I want to share is that I’m terrified of intimacy also, which is why I do and teach this work–to create a conscious user manual for navigating the nuanced art of intimacy and connection.
✨I’ll tell you another secret–I do this work of vulnerability, intimacy and connection in community and in my relationships because of how these practices have completely transformed the way I manifest my reality.
✨In fact, I’m about to leave for an epic 3 month adventure that is a direct reflection of the intimacy work I’ve been committed to over the past 3 years…and I’ll share more about that with you next week.
✨This will be the last in-person event I hold in the Bay Area until May, so if you are curious and want one last opportunity to experience these intimate gatherings before I depart on my journey, I invite you to come out and play.
