Fear is a limiting and negative energy. Not just where it concerns our spiritual development but with everything we do in our day to day lives. Just think about being afraid of going out at night for instance. Just suppose you want to go out at night but you are afraid of doing so out of fear of getting robbed. You are then limited in your desires and only because of that fear. People go out at night and have never been robbed, but because society tells us it’s dangerous to go out at night due to crime we stay indoors when darkness falls.
Fear of failure, fear of success, they all get in the way of our personal development and since spiritual development is a huge part of our personal development it is very important to rid ourselves of fear or any other negative energies such as doubt or lack of faith which are also a result of fear.
Everything is energy
As science has proven this fact to be true we should be very aware of energies. Everything, including you and me, is made of energy and vibrates at different frequencies or energy-levels. The energy-levels can be measured on a scale from 1 – 1000 as Dr. David Hawkins was able to establish. Please click here for further reference.
Quantum physics shows us that we live in a thought-energy environment which literally means that our thoughts create our reality, it’s a manifestation process. We are the creators or our lives and surroundings. So when we feel fear which is a negative energy, we produce negative thoughts, thus we create a negative reality.
What we do when we want to develop our spiritual side is in fact start the process of manifestation. So if we want to succeed in this process we must rid ourselves of all negative energies in order to succeed in a positive way. In our rational society these facts are heavily overlooked if not completely ignored with as a result that humanity is completely out of touch with the spiritual side of things. Hence, a society that is very dysfunctional.
We are surrounded by negative energies and most of us are completely programmed in a negative way. This works very destructive as we can see with our own eyes when we have an honest look within and around ourselves.
Spiritual development or going back to the core of who we really are?
Spiritual development is going back to our original selves. The ones that we were before paradigms of fear, lack of faith and doubt kicked in, which shaped our beings into powerless and limited creatures.
Drop the fear because we are multi-dimensional beings with tremendous power but have completely forgotten that. So when spiritual development starts to trigger your subconscious mind go for it and journey back to who you really are, an infinite and unlimited being.
The debt ceiling is a cap on borrowing, usually self-imposed. The debtor has to raise this cap to borrow more and balance budget deficit. Increasing revenue and/or decreasing expenditure constitute two alternatives to raising the debt ceiling. Failure to take any action leads to payment defaults.
Explaining the National Debt Ceiling
The national debt ceiling is the maximum amount the government chooses to borrow at any given time. The US government has increased the debt ceiling 91 times since 1960 to match the budget deficit. The ceiling stands at $14.3 trillion as of July 2011.
Failure to raise the debt ceiling when the total borrowing reaches the debt ceiling means a cap on further borrowing, and thereby, the inability to make payments for expenditures incurred, repay existing loans, or honor commitments. Raising the debt ceiling to a higher figure, balancing the budget by reducing expenditures, and/or increasing revenues may avert a default.
Balancing the Budget
The alternative to raising the debt ceiling is to balance the budget by raising fresh revenues, cutting down on expenditures, or both.
The government incurs two types of expenditures:
Obligatory or fixed commitments such as loan repayments, salaries, and other liabilities. Discretionary expenditures such as spending on infrastructure, stimulus packages, and many other types of spending as outlined in the budget.
Not repaying an obligatory commitment, like a matured bond, constitutes default. As such, the government makes spending cuts by making fewer allocations for discretionary items, such as infrastructure, in the budget. Discretionary items are those that the government is not under any liability or obligation to pay and can choose to spend only if it wants to do so.
Closing tax loopholes, raising new taxes, widening the tax net to include more people, and stimulating economic growth all increase tax revenues. Balancing the budget usually requires a combination of all these activities.
The opponents to balancing the budget opine that reducing government spending and/or levying higher taxes result in less cash in the market. The cash crunch forces businesses to cut jobs. This increases unemployment, thereby increasing spending on social security and welfare programs, which makes the purpose self-defeating. Increased unemployment reduces the demand for goods and services, which in turn fuels further job losses and creates a vicious cycle leading to recession or depression.
The proponents of balancing the budget argue that living within means is the fundamental basics of sound financial management, and federal expenditure should not exceed revenues.
The debt ceiling, although a self-imposed limit, also represents the ultimate borrowing power. The government may fix any amount it deems fit, but the availability of such an amount as debt depends on whether the lenders consider the government capable of repayment.
Raising the debt ceiling would work only as a short-term measure. The added liabilities of the new loans would add to the budget deficit, and soon a stage would come when the lenders refuse to lend any more money because of doubt about the government’s ability to repay. This would lead to permanent defaults and an economic catastrophe.
The following are some of the suggestions made by advocates of balancing the budget.
Link social security cost of living indexes to the chained consumer price index (CCPI). The CCPI works by compensating for the price increase of a product by using less of it, finding a cheaper substitute, using something different, or avoiding it as appropriate. The Bureau of Labor Statistics first published the CCPI in 2002. Linking social security to CCPI would reduce social security outgo by an estimated 10 percent through 2020. Institute tax reforms to ensure that the wealthy pay more on a progressive basis. One suggestion is to revise the Alternate Minimum Tax to make it serve its original purpose of countering the effect of people taking advantage of tax shelters to pay zero taxes. Another suggestion is to cut tax breaks such as mortgage reductions that benefit high-income taxpayers Rollback some of the recession-induced welfare programs. Repeal of the CLASS Act that created a program of voluntary long-term-care insurance would, for instance, reduce the federal deficit by $70 billion over 10 years Re-evaluate federal spending priorities. Federal tax revenues total an estimated $2 trillion in 2011. Setting aside $0.5 trillion to service existing debt, the government still has about $1.5 trillion to fund constitutional functions. To put things in perspective, the entire federal budget was only about $1 trillion in 1990, and the crux of the debt crisis is this figure quadrupling in the last 20 years. Stimulate economic growth by means such as a pro-enterprise legislative climate, which would increase tax revenues
All these proposals have pros and cons, and their effectiveness in the overall scheme of things requires working out.
The present debate on whether to raise the raise the debt ceiling as the US government heads for a default by August 2, 2011 brings the issue to center-stage. The debt ceiling at present stands at $14.3 trillion, and the government requires $2.2 trillion more, through 2012.
Raising the debt ceiling is only a short-term measure. Balancing the budget through a careful evaluation of federal spending to make the necessary changes and tax reforms will make a permanent fix.

As most of you are aware by now, Thrive Movement was set up to expose the Illuminati and its worldwide conspiracy to dominate and control the world by creating a One World Order – a fascist government, stripped of nationalistic and regional boundaries, that is obedient to their agenda.
Foster and Kimberley Carter Gamble behind the Thrive Movement are illuminating our innate transcendent state and our natural tendency to thrive – not be driven by greed and fear and the darkness that drives it. They are shining a light for us to follow and I have total respect for their work and for the other light workers who are contributing to this drive to wake us up.
David Icke (in his book The Biggest Secret) has brought to our attention how the Illuminati have been successful by creating a problem and its reaction and the solution. Take for example the gun control scenario in the US. today, bearing in mind that one of their known agendas is to disarm the people. The media release horrific and heart wrenching coverage to create the desired reaction for which they come up with the solution. They did it in Australia – lets see if the Americans are so easy to disarm. Foster Gamble claims that most of the major wars, political upheavals and economic depressions of the last century were carefully planned and instigated by the machination of these conspirators.
Most people react with disbelief and skepticism towards this topic, unaware that they are being conditioned (brainwashed) to react with skepticism by institutional and media influences that in themselves have been created by the NWO to start with. By nature, most people have built in ‘slides’ that short out the mind’s critical examination process when it comes to certain sensitive topics. “Slides” dead-end a persons thinking and terminate debate or examination of the topic they find confronting. But in reality, what most people believe to be public opinion is in reality carefully crafted and scripted propaganda designed to elicit a desired behavioral response from the public.
For those of you who don’t know, the Illuminati is said to be made up of 13 bloodline families and their offshoots that make up a major portion of this controlling elite. Some say they are occultists or black magicians. It is said that these original families set a plan for this New World Order that goes back centuries.
According to Ken Adachi (editor of educate-yourself.org), The Illuminati strive for:
“A One World Government and one-unit monetary system, under permanent non-elected hereditary oligarchists who self-select from among their numbers in the form of a feudal system as it was in the Middle Ages. In this One World entity, population will be limited by restrictions on the number of children per family, diseases, wars, famines, until 1 billion people who are useful to the ruling class, in areas which will be strictly and clearly defined, remain as the total world population.
There will be no middle class, only rulers and the servants. All laws will be uniform under a legal system of world courts practicing the same unified code of laws, backed up by a One World Government police force and a One World unified military to enforce laws in all former countries where no national boundaries shall exist. The system will be on the basis of a welfare state; those who are obedient and subservient to the One World Government will be rewarded with the means to live; those who are rebellious will simply be starved to death or be declared outlaws, thus a target for anyone who wishes to kill them. Privately owned firearms or weapons of any kind will be prohibited.
All of this is very well, but we in Australia, we need to look to our neighbors – China.
China has a population in excess of 1.2 billion. It is a communist dictatorship with atomic super powers extraordinaire, and it boasts the world’s largest army of over 3 million soldiers. It is currently on its own plan (of 250 years) to buy up as much of the world as it can. In the last decade China’s share of world savings has risen from 10 percent to 25 percent. That’s one quarter in ten years. When they have bought up enough of our corporations, property, mining companies, waterways and technology – They can and will dictate the terms.
And the world can’t compete. Take the fashion industry for example. From the moment a model steps on the catwalk to strut the latest stuff to the world, the Chinese – with their stolen laser technology – have reproduced the designer collections and have them ready to be shipped by the following morning to anywhere in the world at a tenth of the cost than the western world. They are smart. Their children are considered to be a failure if they get less than 96% at school.
This battle of dark against light is not a new battle, but we have entered a new cycle which promises to give us hope if we are aware enough to take up the challenge.
Christianity is a dying religion, and thank god for that! It might have served the 13 original bloodline conspirators to help dumb down the population for a century or so, but people of this era now find it insulting and barbaric. And there is power in the people. I suppose – putting aside the Machiavellian deceit of the dark lords whose aim it is to suppress the rest of us – at least the Chinese, in some way, have remained true to the Tao, even if their Wu Wey is slightly grey.
Perhaps their dictatorial methods are being driven by the same evil intent as the Illuminati but their religious inclinations, familial loyalty, ancient medicinal methods are more in tune with the nature of things.
But there is another force at hand.
There is a wave of consciousness hitting our beautiful blue planet as we enter this golden age of illumination. Every day there is more and more focus on how to take care of our bodies and our minds and our souls. Meditation is now a house hold word if not habit for millions. The gym has become the new church. Healthy eating is a fashion. The internet – with all its potential blue-tooth big brother innuendoes – is giving us access to knowledge of all kinds. And knowledge IS power. And there is our basic human nature which ultimately yearns to love and be loved, and if enough of us learn to follow the ancient teachings of compassion and self empowerment, which has seeped through all the cracks of every religion, there is hope.
Once you’ve chosen between UNIX and Windows hosting services, there are still more decisions to be made. Do you have a preference for the version of operating system used? What are things to look for when selecting a particular provider and package?
Varieties of UNIX and Windows
Throughout this series, we’ve been using the terms UNIX and Windows in our comparison of web hosting options as if there were really no variety within each of the two operating systems. In fact, this isn’t the case at all.
Although the options in each of the two hosting categories are varied, they do share enough commonalities that they can be grouped together when exploring the pros and cons. However, when trying to decide on a particular web host, it’s important to find out exactly which version of the operating system is being offered.
The UNIX hosting category is something of a catch-all that includes the different varieties of UNIX and all its derivatives, such as Linux and FreeBSD. Windows on the other hand, is a bit more narrow in its scope of choices with Windows 2003 Server and Windows 2008 Server dominating the current market.
Experience of Provider
Since UNIX hosting services are typically cheaper to maintain and the associated upfront costs are much lower, many hosting companies began their business only offering this option. Then, as time passed, and the business became more profitable, Windows hosting services were added to the menu. A natural result of this is that a lot of hosting services have much more experience working with the UNIX platform.
Now, just as there are differences in UNIX and Windows hosting services, different skills are needed to manage each environment. While the duties involved overlap in many areas, there are definitely some tasks that are distinct for each operating system.
If you do choose to go with Windows hosting, take some time to do a little research and see how much experience the service provider has in this area. The hosting company may have been working with UNIX platforms for years and only recently added Windows to their list of options. This certainly doesn’t mean that they’re not qualified to offer Windows hosting as a product, but having some experience in the field can make quite a difference, especially when dealing with unplanned outages or malicious attacks.
In short, a company may have a great deal of experience with web hosting in general, but it may be brand new to the Windows hosting side of things. If this information isn’t available on the provider’s web site, don’t be shy about sending an email and asking.
After making the decision between UNIX and Windows Hosting, many people start looking for the cheapest provider they can find, only paying attention to that one basic characteristic. Be careful not to fall into this trap. Unless you only care about creating the most basic of web sites, take some time to read the full package details to see what’s included. In the long run, buying a cheap hosting package may end up costing a lot more than you planned if you’re continually having to purchase add-ons or upgrades.
Nowadays, a lot of web host providers also sponsor community forums where customers can share information, ask questions, and report problems. When shopping, take some time to see if the host you’re interested in has such an open forum and spend a few moments browsing the topics. If there are habitual problems with server downtime or poor customer service, they’re sure to be noted there.
Though the scientific cause/effect behind most of the environmental issues is still being debated by many, the fact that more and more consumers are showing real interest in eco-friendly products such as household cleaning products, personal hygiene products, etc. also cannot be denied.
Consumers Are Becoming More Aware than Ever
One of the major reasons as to why some green product innovations are finding success is because of the increased level of interest from the consumers. An elaborate poll conducted by the Time Magazine shows that more than 50 percent of the American people gave more importance to environmental protection than economic growth. The poll also found that almost 60 percent of the people had bought organic products in the previous years, and more than 40 percent of the purchases were made based on the political/social values of the company.
Even though organic food consumption still hasn’t grown much and occupies a tiny part of the overall food market, the segment is rapidly growing with an estimated annual growth rate of 20 percent. This clearly shows that consumers are starting to care more about the green industry and have the needed resources to discover/find products that successfully meet their requirements.
Green Trends to Watch for in 2013
#1: Eco-Superior Products: The fact remains that going green is becoming more and more popular each year. This year we will be finding a higher number of eco-superior products in the market; products that are not just environmentally friendly but also give better performance/results than the non-green products. Trendwatching.com reports that we can expect many known brands to focus on green by showcasing better quality/design, along with an increased level of durability/lower cost of running for products. This is why you find green brands such as Pure Formulas website creating products that are not only eco-friendly but are also superior in cost/quality than the other “non-green” counterparts.
