URGENT INTERNATIONAL APPEAL! Immediately Stop Implementation of 5G (5th Generation) Wireless Networks on Earth and in Space

URGENT INTERNATIONAL APPEAL! Immediately Stop Implementation of 5G (5th Generation) Wireless Networks on Earth and in Space

To the UN, WHO, EU, Council of Europe and governments of all nations: We the undersigned scientists, doctors, environmental organizations and citizens from countries named in this appeal, urgently call for a halt to the deployment of the 5G (fifth generation) wireless network, including 5G from space satellites. 5G will massively increase exposure to radio frequency (RF) radiation on top of the 2G, 3G and 4G networks for telecommunications already in place. RF radiation has been proven harmful for humans and the environment. The deployment of 5G constitutes an experiment on humanity and the environment that is defined as a crime under international law. Executive summary Telecommunications companies worldwide, with the support of governments, are poised within the next two years to roll out the fifth-generation wireless network (5G). This is set to deliver what is acknowledged to be unprecedented societal change on a global scale. We will have “smart” homes, “smart” businesses, “smart” highways, “smart” cities and self-driving cars. Virtually everything we own and buy, from refrigerators and washing machines to milk cartons, hairbrushes and infants’ diapers, will contain antennas and microchips and will be connected wirelessly to the Internet. Every person on Earth will have instant access to super-high-speed, low- latency wireless communications from any point on the planet, even in rainforests, mid-ocean and the Antarctic. What is not widely acknowledged is that this will also result in unprecedented environmental change on a global scale. The planned density of radio frequency transmitters is impossible to envisage. In addition to millions of new 5G base stations on Earth and 20,000 new satellites in space, 200 billion transmitting objects,...
The Story of Marpa

The Story of Marpa

Marpa was an extremely frightening child. When he was 3 or 4 years old, everybody in the city was afraid of him. He had an immense power in him, and everybody said, “This child, either he is going to become a spiritual teacher, or he is going to destroy all of us as soon as he gets a little older.” It is said that if you see the pictures of Marpa, you will understand. It is said he is an incarnation of the mind of Padmasambhava (lit. “Lotus-Born”), also known as Guru Rinpoche. Padmasambhava himself, before dying, mentioned he will be reborn again, his mind would reincarnate as that person.He found some teachers in Tibet, but none of them were great enough, so he traveled to India to meet the greatest teacher of that time, Naropa. Since Marpa is an incarnation of Padmasambhava, he was clean karmically. He was ready and could just receive the teachings. He went there, and Naropa looked at him and said, “yes, you have all the spiritual credentials.” He gave him the teachings, and Marpa, the Great Translator, translated all these yogas and brought them to Tibet. And until today, everywhere you study yoga in Tibet, you study by the scriptures that Marpa took from Naropa. Marpa had the feeling he had to make a lot of money to give his teacher when he met him and he was very powerful, so he made a ton of money, and he came with sacks of gold. He said, “When I find Naropa, I will give him the gold and be worthy of the teachings.” He...
The Story of Tilopa, Naropa, and the 6 Yogas of Naropa

The Story of Tilopa, Naropa, and the 6 Yogas of Naropa

The great yogi Tilopa, after he attained very high spiritual initiations and a very elevated state of consciousness, became a fisherman and lived the life of an ordinary fisherman for many years. At the same time, in Bengal, there was a great scholar, Naropa. Naropa was from a very respected family that was very rich and well-known in the land. He had married a princess, and he lived a life of wealth. Naropa was attracted to spirituality, so he became a scholar of Buddhism. He was extremely charismatic. At that time, Hindus and Buddhists would hold spiritual matches in public: there would be a great teacher on each side, accompanied by smaller teachers. For hours and hours, sometimes days and days, they would debate which religion is better. The Buddhists would say that theirs is better, the Hindus that theirs is the best. They would go from the very practical to the very philosophical aspects. And Naropa, who became a very learned scholar of Buddhism, was becoming a superstar of these matches. After one such contest that Naropa won, 600 people converted from Hinduism to Buddhism. This made Naropa very well-known and respected. Then at one point, a woman who is described by the texts as one of the ugliest possible women – she had 27 defects of ugliness, an atrocious nose, hair, and forehead with wrinkles and pimples, and all sorts of things – this woman, who was extremely ugly, (in fact, just like Tilopa), came, and she told Naropa: “Do you know the scriptures? Do you know them intellectually? And do you have the experience?” Naropa said,...

Tantra for Women: A New Podcast with Maria Blandine Wegener

Tantra for Women: A New Podcast with Maria Blandine Wegener

Recently I sat down with Mahasiddha teacher Maria Blandine Wegener for a two-part podcast on Tantra for women. In an in-depth conversation for my Humans in Love podcast, Blandine and I discussed a wide variety of topics relating to Tantra for women, Tantric sexuality, and the impact of Tantra on relationships with family, lovers, and friends. Our chat was focused largely on Blandine’s personal experience with tantra, and tantra-curious women may draw a lot of insight and inspiration from hearing the intimate details of one Tantric’s journey. Blandine is a teacher and life coach for applied Yoga and Tantra, implementing elements from a variety of yoga traditions, Ayurveda, and psychology.  She is also one of the most insightful and knowledgeable women I’ve ever met with regards to relationships, spirituality, and sexuality. She taught me a lot over the past six months or so. I was thrilled to have her on my podcast, and I hope you enjoy our conversation. Some key takeaways from this two-part Tantra for women podcast: On soul awakenings   I feel like I “came out this way” a little bit… Feeling extremely connected to the universe around me, and having states of divine ecstacy when I was a child…   I remember having many revelations before entering the yoga path around how love works, and how somehow by love we are all connected… By having a heart, we are all a little center of the universe… All of a sudden, it was all falling into place with this focus upon entering the heart, and Tantra really being a path of the heart where the whole first...

My spiritual journey started about a year ago with a series of traumatic and unexpected events: first, I had just officially (and reluctantly) finalized a divorce after seven years of marriage, followed almost sequentially by an internal power struggle at my global management consulting firm (which, after several months of fighting, I lost and was “gracefully” requested to leave of my own volition…as if I had a choice).
