What Are You Going to Do About It?

You gave it your best shot. You had faith, did the work and worked hard at it. You courageously supported, promoted and pushed all your chips onto the table in this deal in an “all or nothing” proclamation of your earnest belief that this was the answer.

Now, you realize – more than ever – sometimes things don’t turn out like you had planned.

when-things-dont-go-your-way-what-are-you-going-to-do-about-it

You are mad, your feelings have been hurt, you feel betrayed, embarrassed even victimized.

As others are silently watching you, they are waiting to see how you are going to respond to this situation. After an uncomfortable state of shock, you react. Onlookers are taking note of the words that escape you mouth (or fingertips) in this moment.

Some people may unjustly mock, attack or ridicule you based on those first words acknowledging your pain or disapproval of seeing your hopes and dreams demolished. It is a brutal world, full of self-centered cynics who could care less about your emotional state in this tender moment, when you feel as though your world – undoubtedly the one that you so believed in – has crumbled to dust.

Inside each tragedy of life, there lies a hidden treasure chest. Only you have the key to see what’s inside. It’s in times, like these, that we can be empowered for massive growth and change.

there-is-treasure-in-your-tragedy-only-you-have-the-key-david-m-masters
There is treasure in your tragedy only you have the key

When I look back on my own setbacks, like the loss of a marriage and family, betrayal of family or friends whom I trusted, investments that evaporated or the loss of a son in a battle while he was serving offshore in Afghanistan, all of it – no matter how ultimately tragic it was at the moment – was an opportunity for me to grow and live a better life.

Many of us have suffered though what appeared to be insurmountable obstacles. Even though we may have felt as though life was so awful, we were able to push through and enjoy what life was holding for us on the other side.

So, after you’ve gained your balance, it comes down to this:

What Are You Going to Do About It?

This is where the rubber meets the road, or as my grandfather would say, it’s what “separates the men from the boys.”

Maybe you’ve expressed your feelings about your loss shouting from the rooftops, or you may have held your shattered dreams close to the vest, either way, following the realization that things didn’t turn out like you had hoped,

What are you going to do about it?

You could do nothing. You could play the role of the victim, or you could take action, determined to live a better life, your best life, and make the world a better place.

This is when you come face-to-face to the person you were meant to be. You can turn these inner feelings – that could ultimately destroy a normal person – into the fuel necessary to launch your new life or change the world in a major (or even some small) way.

You could talk about it, or you could rise up and take action. In times like these, you give birth or bolster the leader or warrior within.

Start evaluating your life. Look around and see who truly has your best interests at heart. Do some social housecleaning. Maybe it’s time for a change, possibly massive change of career, or location.

Is it time to leverage your skills, to assemble a team or mobilize a movement?

Once you’ve taken action, you realize what a powerful force for good you can be. Go forth in love, with understanding and benevolence, without judgment or disrespect and make the world a better place.

This is your moment.

This is your time.

It has all come down to this,

What will you do about it?

All Things Work Together for Good

In a world that appears to be so unstable, when life tosses you about like a rag doll, it’s easy to settle into the ol’ Charlie Brown line, “Why’s everybody always picking on me?”

As you begin to awaken, live more life and live it more fully, compassionately, enthusiastically and lovingly, you also begin to see this life through a new set of enlightened eyes. With these eyes you can see that even when you thought things were at their worst, looking back you can see those things were moving you toward something better.

Even in those deepest and darkest moments, something beautiful springs to life within you or around you and in retrospect you realize, though it was painful, it was necessary, in your best interest and may have been the only way, you could have redirected you to live a better life.

Enjoying the long distant vistas from the mountaintop of your life experience, you can see how all the events, the good, the bad and the ugly, were all perfectly conceived and enacted in such a way to bring you to this place as your heart wells up with gratitude and love for every inch of the journey.

all-things-work-together-for-good

In fact, on the map of your life, you can see each event – even those that you thought were accidents or coincidental – were perfectly precise pins, strategically placed leading you to where you are today. It’s almost as if, each step was divinely guided (you might be surprised to discover that each step was). In this way, we can rest in the assurance that,

All Things Work Together for Good

Then you ask yourself, “Is ‘good’ good enough for me?”

You believe there is more to this life. You desire more, and you begin to query as to,

What else is possible?

and/or

How much better does it get?

This is the moment you decide to take a proactive approach to creating your own experience in the world.

For instance, you can look around at the world to see it as it is. In your mind’s eye you can see the world as you might like to see it, not only for your own enjoyment but for the benefit of all creatures inhabiting our planet. And you ask yourself,

What can I do to make the world a better place?

While there is so much beyond your control, you reason there must be something you can do to make the world a better place, even if only in some small way. As you ponder these things your mind is quickened with ideas about how you can make a positive contribution, affecting change in the quality of your life, your community and/or the world at large, without having to fight.

Want a different world?

want-a-different-world-donald-trump-no-president-will-do-it-for-youI don’t know if you’ve noticed

No leader, politician or

President will do it for you.

Only you can change your world.

As you take personal responsibility for changing your world for the better, you realize the time has come for you to

Live a Better Life, Your Best Life and Make the World a Better Place.

And so it is.

Sometimes Things Don’t Go as Planned

You may be a doer (you know I love doers, happen to be one myself) and if you are, you may find yourself at risk of finding yourself in awkward situations resulting from your tendency to do a thing (rather than just sit around and talk about it, like other folks).

We all have to deal with fear of the unknown whenever encountering a new opportunity in uncharted territory. While some people allow this fear to overtake them, some of us rise to the challenge, muster up as much courage as possible and forge a new path through an unfamiliar terrain.

While many onlookers watch us in amazement doing things like nobody’s business, they are thinking or caught saying things, like

Wow, I wish I could do that

Or alternatively

Whoa, I’m glad that’s not me

Depending on the circumstance.

sometimes-things-dont-go-as-planned-swing-batter-batter-swing
Swing batter-batter, swing!

It’s not unlike a batting average. You have to swing at a lot of balls to hit a few out’a the park. The more you swing, the more you are going to totally miss. Some will be good base hits, and a few will be home runs.

Regardless of your confidence level, if you keep swinging, your chances are you will do one of two things

You will achieve a level of success or competence

Or

You will learn something and do things differently next time

Of course, there will be those who will internalize the circumstance, fueled with self-doubt will bail out of the game altogether; never to play again because they believe they were better off not having tried at all.

Nonetheless, there are those moments when things do tend to get awkward, or embarrassing. Not just in business, as we tend to apply these very same stormtrooper methods to other areas of life also.

All the while, our friends continue to look on in amazement, uttering those very same lines, “Wow, I wish I could do that,” or, “Whoa, I’m glad that’s not me.”

Being the doer that I am, I have a laundry list of faux pas that could fuel a career as a stand-up comic, though I remain focused on my personal mission and message. So, I’m more likely to find myself staying on track, rather than try my muster at the local comedy club. But, it is great fun and entertainment to swap stories with other doers who have similar tales to tell.

Although, I’m tempted to relate a few of those stories here for your amusement, I don’t really see any value in memorializing the most awkward or embarrassing moments of my personal and/or professional life. Suffice it to say, that no one who is gathering enough courage to go where no man has gone before (or, at least where the individual has never been before) is likely to do so without dealing with challenges, obstacles or unforeseen occurrences, only to find themselves thinking, “Well,

“That’s not the way I planned it.”

How could anyone have known?

Okay, maybe a little more due diligence may have avoided this or that. Maybe a better background check might have been warranted. Maybe projections were off, finances could have been handled better, packaging or branding should have received more attention, and what is it they say about location, location, location?

The list goes on and on… because hindsight is always 20/20. And this is how we learn.

Sometimes all the education, practicing and planning in the world cannot adequately prepare you for that moment, when you’re staring down the pitcher, noting the position of all the other players on the field. Bases are loaded as you wind-up… It all comes down to this.

Crack!

That ball travelling at 80 MPH lands smack dab in the pitcher’s mitt.

It happens.

Just as Tennyson wrote, “Tis better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all,”

it-is-better-to-have-tried-and-failed-than-never-to-have-tried-at-all

It is better to have tried and failed, than never to have tried at all.

This is the most common regret of those approaching this life’s exit point: “If only I’d…”

Don’t let this be you.

Dare to do that thing, and…

Don’t quit.

What Are You Attracting?

Ever wonder why things are the way they are in your life?

The people, peculiarities, situations and circumstances that appear in your life do so according to your beckoning. You called all these things into being by the power of your thoughts, or even more powerful: your spoken words.

what-are-you-attracting-vibration-frequency-law-of-attraction

According to the Law of Attraction, what you think or speak about is what you are attracting to you, even if it your thoughts are in the negative form. For instance, if you were to think, “I want to see a black cat,” or alternatively, “I don’t want to see a black cat,” the universe responds by providing you the opportunity to see a black cat.

If you add an enormous amount of energy to what you don’t want, like emphatically telling all your friends that you don’t want to see a black cat as long as you live, possibly scream it at the sky or pray fervently about how much you never want to see a black cat again, guess what?

You got it: A big black cat… maybe even a barrage of many black cats.

If this is true, then everything in life that surrounds you is a product of your thoughts or the words that escape your lips. And it is likely, the more things you don’t want (especially if you’re enthusiastic about not wanting it and/or clearly express your not wanting it) the more opportunities you have to interact with what you do not want.

What do you want?

The answer is easy: Start thinking about and professing what you do want.

Even religious texts urge us to think about good things, so this is nothing new. For if we focus on the negative, this is what we get, on the other hand if we think only about those things that are good and lovely, beautiful, honorable and bring us joy, then more of these things are added to our life.

Stop thinking, speaking (or even worse: obsessing) about what you don’t want and start focusing intently and enthusiastically about what you do want.

The people who seem to have the best lives, the best luck and attract the best opportunities and circumstances think and speak positively about their expectations and (here’s the next piece) believe these things will come to pass.

You are energy

As much as we’d like to believe that we are flesh and bone, there is a much greater more powerful version of ourselves accompanying us on our journey on this planet. We are actually more energy than we are matter. Our energy emits a certain frequency and everything that exists around us is a perfect match to the energetic frequency we send out.

When you have a powerful, energetic thought which is contrary to your normal frequency or vibration, a powerful burst of energy explodes disrupting the vibration to which you have been so accustom.

While this creates a weak spot in your normal vibrational frequency, it is not enough to permeate your field of vibration for longstanding change.

Sustain

That is where belief comes in. Thinking and/or speaking disrupts your current vibration and belief sustains the new frequency. In this way, the more you focus on the new thought pattern and the longer you trust or have faith that it will come to pass, the more certain your positive results.

What if I doubt?

Doubt is an explosive energetic demand that the universe return you to your previous vibration or state of affairs. You can correct for this by immediately initiating an emphatic positive affirmation, in essence, changing the channel back to your higher frequency or vibration. Continued doubt, will result in sustaining the old vibration and returning you to that which you’re more used to.

What about the how?

We can get distracted by trying to figure out the how. This is where logic gets in the way of the power of the universe. If we can stay focused on only the end result as non-specifically as possible, this allows the universe to fully engage bringing to us on that which is our highest and best, in ways we may not have been able to imagine, with a far greater end result.

To change your life all you need to do is to change your thoughts/words (the more enthusiastically the better), continue to believe the new results will appear, to be open and allow the details to be delivered in the best way possible, and you will find yourself enjoying having the things you want in your life, the way you want them, or even more.

Lead With Love

Gone are the days of heavy-handed leadership in the civilized society. Civilians are less likely to respond well to militaristic management styles. As we continue to evolve beyond our basic humanity, there is an awareness emerging, a sense that there is something more to life than just being a simple worker bee.

This urge to sense there is more to discover is the root of an enormous awakening in humanity, though the professional communities are more likely to convince you the urge can be (and should be) focused on your individual quest for meaning and purpose through your career choices or working environment.

Excellent upgrades are permeating the workforce of America – and the world – as we look at better ways to treat workers, because the militaristic methodologies or slavery-style leadership is being viewed as cruel or inhumane as workers feel they bring more value to the planet than being reduced to simply being a cog in the wheel.

As humanity continues to evolve society must discover ways to accommodate the evolution of the human mind, body and spirit as we head into the future.

The emergence of a kinder, gentler counter leader approach to leadership is gaining ground among professional management, rather than leading with an iron-fist, we are finding that the most productive leaders

Lead With Love

play-your-cards-right-lead-with-love

While this may be a difficult concept to embrace when you are first introduced to it, we all can agree with the idiom, “You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.” It becomes necessary for leadership to treat their workforce with respect imbuing them with a sense of belonging, dignity and worth to achieve maximum effectiveness and higher retention.

It follows, if leadership were to turn up the volume on respect to its highest level you would be looking at “love” face to face. Hugely uncomfortable for some, but a brilliantly enlightened approach to team-building and the creation of uplifting support staffs.

Promoting camaraderie and a joyous work environment is trending in business cultures and the effects are paying off for the businesses and corporations utilizing these tactics… but as the workforce continues their evolution, there is an increasing sense of finding more meaning in what they do.

The most basic need of humanity is to love and be loved. Though we try to beat the sense of love or being worthy of love out of our societal structure (and certainly society has initiated many campaigns to persuade us to believe that love is folly and fleeting) innately we know that we were created to love and be loved, even if we’re unlikely to agree with the concept in the moment.

Work for Free

I work with leaders who lead with love. They are bold about it and their cultures radiate it within their organizations and to the communities they serve. Even though these workers are being well compensated, they are not motivated by the money at all. In fact, they have said – and I believe them – that they would work for free because they love their work.

To them, love is all there really is.

Now, that got the attention of leadership. Think about it, to have a team that was so in love with you, your business or organization (and each other) that they would work for free to support your vision.

Of course, leading with love and creating a culture of loving lovers is a daunting task if you are not truly a lover yourself. For those I know who lead with love, they are supported by the most amazing love cultures, and it just comes naturally to them.

Their business culture is an extension of who they are. As they are evolving into more loving individuals the love bug infects their entire organization like a sacred virus.

I am confident that as more people awake to the enlightened sacred virus, they will expect and eventually seek love in their daily lives even more than monetary reward.

How can you better lead with love?

 

Cancer of Giving

‘Tis better to give than receive.

That’s what they say.

Cancer of giving give from abundance not lack 20 ways to fund giving

So, the most benevolent of us often finds ourselves giving and giving upon giving for the benefit of others, while we sacrifice ourselves to death. It is not uncommon for these massively unselfish individuals who would give you the shirt off their back, the shoes off their feet and even their rent money to develop cancer and die. In some cases, the cancer and the idea of passing from life to death is comforting because the patient feels as though their reward for their selflessness waits on the other side.

Yet, not all who give of themselves unselfishly get sick and/or contract cancer, some actually are flourishing as others deteriorate suffering from a variety of ailments.

So what’s the difference?

You

You are the difference. How do you feel when you give?

Givers who give from abundance and joy give from a cup that is full… and they may have multiple full cups to give from. These are they happy, healthy givers. Giving from one cup – which may be low – may be emotionally financed from another overflowing cup.

In this way, you could have two people both with the same amount of money in the bank. They both give all that they have in their bank account to help a family who has lost everything due to their home being burned to the ground. One is enthusiastic, energized and happy about the gift, while the other is discouraged, depleted and depressed about the gift. Though I have used money as an example. I’m referring to giving of anything, like time, attention, talent, belongings, location, etc…

Those who are constantly asking, “What can I do for you?” and those who are inclined to offer unsolicited acts of kindness are superheroes in our society. But if your giving is not making you feel good, then you may be practicing unhealthy giving and this unhealthy giving could be killing you.

Self-sacrificially giving to make you feel better about yourself (if you’re not feeling well, suffer from feelings of inadequacies or unworthiness). while there may be a temporary surge of feeling better (it does make you feel good to help someone else) the longer term effects can exasperate your health and wellness.

All resources are not created equal, some balance sheets have a greater value than others but combined they could represent a healthy portfolio from which healthy giving could flow, even if one account is low, the other accounts can subsidize the giving.

20 Ways to Fund Your Giving

These various accounts represent things other than the cup the gift originates from. In example, here are twenty cups that could help you finance your giving to others, such as (1) Food/Shelter/Clothing, (2) Self-confidence/esteem, (3) Optimistic Outlook on Life, (4) Good Health, (5) Loving Family, (6) Good Friends, (7) Cuddly Pets, (8) Transportation, (9) A Good Job, (10) Low (or no) Debt, (11) Worry-free, (12) Creative Thought Processes, (13) Enthusiastic Hobby and/or Ongoing Projects, (14) Reading Good Books, (15) Trying or Learning New Things, (16) Extra Time on Your Hands, (17) You Treat Yourself First, (18) Open to Receiving, (19) Happiness (present and past) and (20) Gratitude.

It is the combined balance of all these accounts which fuels your ability to participate in healthy giving.

If you are giving due to lack of any of these accounts, the results can be destructive to your body, soul and spirit.

Does it mean to stop giving?

Well, if your giving is killing you or making you susceptible to attracting cancer or other diseases, it may be time to cut back on your giving until you’re able to build up balances in other accounts first.

This is an exciting journey.

Manage what you can in the best way possible for living a better life.

Stars and Stripes Motivation Fuel

In my work with people and their businesses to increase their prospects in life, I find the underlying motivations for increasing their market share has a long reaching impact on their potential success and sustained longevity in a particular marketplace.

stars-or-stripes-motivation-fuel-egocentric-stars-or-soul-centered-stripes

Stars and Stripes

They can be basically represented by two categories, Stars: those who are driven by a desire to achieve fame and/or fortune and alternatively, Stripes: those who are driven by a deep sense of purpose and/or desire to disseminate information, skills, techniques or insights that may significantly impact our planet or its inhabitants.

Stars are those who will do anything to raise their status whether in terms of celebrity or increased cash flow or financial status.

Stripes are compelled or inspired to help others and/or make the world a better place. They would serve the greater good or community regardless of recompense.

All personality types and economic conditions are represented in both categories of Stars and Stripes.

The only significant difference is found within the heart of the individual which fuels the fire of desire.

There are basically two types of fuel that powers the engine enabling a person to take quantitative action toward establishing a particular goal. One is ego-centric, while the other is soul-centered in nature.

The ego-centric fuel burns brightly for the shining Stars but does not sustain power for long requiring more fuel to be added to the motivational furnace. Ego-centric fuel originates from outside the body. It must be measured and obtained from exterior sources, such as the response from, or comparison to, others.

The soul-centered fuel which powers the Stripes comes from within, it may not burn as brightly but sustains a consistent flow of energy that is both efficient and sustainable over long periods of time. Although approval and support from others may increase the ultimate effectiveness of the impact of Stripes, it is unnecessary for sustainable results.

While Stars may leave behind a decent degree of recognition or in the best case scenarios a significant inheritance, Stripes leave behind a legacy and an aura of having made the world a better place, even if only in some small way and may also have acquired substantial wealth doing so.

We may often think that money is the result of hard work or the ability to take from others to achieve a desired result, but money also seems to come to those who are congruent with their sense of purpose and service with a pure heart, if they are open to the idea of receiving. In terms of abundance or the Law of Attraction, the process is effective if worked properly regardless of whether you are a Star or Stripe.

The main difference between Stars and Stripes comes down to the way they feel about what they do.

Stars tend to experience more anxiety and are driven by measuring themselves in comparison to the competition. Always measuring their level of fame or success which may (or may not) sustain the power required for pushing through boundaries with little more than brute strength, leaving one feeling exhausted in trying times.

Stripes experience more peace, a sense of losing track of time because they love what they do, as they focus their efforts to achieve the results they are so compelled to pursue. While they, too, may face obstacles and challenges they keep moving forward with a sense of doing the right thing, though they may tire and reward themselves with a bit of relaxation to regain their composure.

Are you among the Stars or Stripes?

Angels and Dimensions

You have an angel who is individually and acutely attuned to you whether you believe in them or not. Angels exist in another (higher) dimension, so we cannot see them but they can see us. Though intelligence existing in higher dimensions cannot be seen by lower dimensions, they can affect the environments of lower dimensional participants.

For instance, we populate the third dimensional plane of existence, which maintains a particular vibrational frequency. We are able to move around freely while being able to view and interact with second and first dimensional planes of existence.

There are other vibrational planes that exist which maintain higher vibrational frequencies. For the sake of simplicity and as a basis for this particular example, allow yourself to consider the idea that other intelligent forms exist in these higher spiritual states of vibration.

angels-and-dimensions-third-dimension-human-spirit-demons-angels-heaven

Let’s take a look at some of them to gain a better understanding. For instance,

Dimensions 1-3

We can agree that we exist in the third dimension. This is widely accepted, and we understand that we are able to view and interact with the second and first dimensions below our vibrational frequency.

Fourth Dimension

The fourth spiritual dimension vibrational state is what I lightly refer to as the state of confusion. It is the mysterious plane of existence closest to ours and it is the vibration where the human spirit realm exists. This includes our ability to increase our growing ability to raise our vibration through various methods to visit the fourth dimension.

The reason I refer to it as the state of confusion, is because it is in this dimension that the human spirit can be relegated to following death (commonly referred to as ghosts) or transitions through between here (the third dimension) and the afterlife. It is also the vibrational plane that is used by intelligence from higher dimensions to interact with us in the third dimension and where two-way communication can take place.

Fifth Dimension

This is the plane of existence populated by intelligent entities that have never existed in the third dimension. Being closely associated with the third dimension, entities in the fifth spiritual dimension can interact with us easily, influence our thought patterns, circumstances and/or the elements. In religious texts, these entities are referred to as demons or fallen angels.

Sixth Dimension

This is the plane of existence inhabited by beings we refer to as angels. Here they are able to view and interact with lower dimensional vibrational planes. This dimensional plane is more heavily populated than that of the fifth spiritual dimension. While one (or more) of these beings are individually attuned to each living being in the third spiritual dimension, other angels are always nearby and observing (and/or interacting with) us in our current vibrational state.

Seventh Dimension

This is where we exist in our highest state of existence. It is where we ascend to following our life, here in the third dimension. The seventh spiritual dimension is such a high state of vibrational existence it is not possible to fully understand it from a third dimensional existence. Religious texts refer to this dimension as “heaven.”

Higher Dimensions

Are there higher dimensions above the seventh dimension?

I didn’t think so in the seventies and eighties, when I first became acquainted with various dimensional planes of existence. But now, with our growing knowledgebase, accumulation of expanding scientific data, quantum science and spiritual awakening – even at this stage – I believe there is so much more out there to be discovered.

The possibilities are endless…

Modern-day Witch Burning

Back in the day the paranoia of our forefathers included legal restriction, punishment and even killing people who practiced therapeutic modalities which were not understood by either the masses or professional communities of the day. In some cases these individuals were burned, drowned or hanged to death following accusations of practicing witchcraft throughout the 1500s to 1800 or so.

modern-day-witch-burning

While not killed for their abilities to heal and treat disease, witches’ accusers would create falsified accounts as the result of their investigations to conclude the witches had used their powers with ill intent, like using spells or potions not recognized by the professional community that ultimately caused harm to others.

They were accused of everything from causing the death of others by undiagnosed and untreated disease as well as other bizarre accusations everything from causing erectile dysfunction to having intimate relations with the devil.

Prior to the proliferation of medical schools in the 1200s, anyone could practice the healing arts. Early on, if you practiced (especially if your family had a history of practicing) a particular healing model for a particular disease or specialty, you could simply place a sign outside your door indicating such expertise. Your success or failure in disseminating your particular healing practice was based on your results. If people visited you and were healed, your business thrived, if not it failed.

Medical schools changed the entire landscape of healing throughout the world. The cost of attending medical schools relegated practicing the official healing arts to the elite who could afford to obtain their degrees entitling them to practice medicine, regardless of their ability to actually heal.

It is rumored that the organized medical community was a proponent of accusing unauthorized, unqualified and unorthodox fringe medical practitioners of witchcraft (regardless of their actual ability to heal). The medical community did turn a blind eye to religious healers and recruited the church to ally with them in persecuting witches who practiced the healing arts claiming the witches’ allegiance with the devil.

In the mid-1800s the creation of the American Medical Association was formed and was able to establish a unified list of requirements that would qualify an individual to practice in the healing arts leading to the licensure of medical practitioners.

This eliminated the need to further burn witches because they could simply be prosecuted in criminal courts for practicing medicine without a license and prevented from the unauthorized practice of medicine by any means legally available.

Modern-day Witch Burning

Today medical universities are funded by the pharmaceutical companies who supply their practitioners with the latest patented fashion medications which are disseminated to patients throughout the United States. Still, even with increasing regulations and legal restrictions as bio-tech companies lobby for even tighter control, there is an underground movement promoting natural healing modalities.

This underground movement of natural healing has begun to expose the medical community from immense profit garnered from the prolonging of sickness and disease in patients. Other truths brought to light are factual accounts of prescription medications based on chemical recreations of natural ingredients, which can be patented and sold to the masses. As well as a myriad of other subversive and potentially lethal treatment modalities and laws enacted (even mandated) to support their use.

Doctors within the medical community are beginning to take notice and to tell the truth, turning their back on the recognized medical community and embracing more natural approaches to treatment of disease and healthcare without all the negative side effects of conventional medicine.

While not having to fear being accused of witchcraft or being burned at the stake, the doctors who have decided to jump ship and educate others of the dark truths of the American medical system are silenced by other methods. They unexpectedly “die of natural causes” or mysteriously disappear without a sign.

It appears not much has changed, though the tactics may have become more sinister.

Or not.
