True or False? Can we Tell the Difference, & Belief Systems: Going Once, Going Twice…

Rupert Murdoch

Rupert Murdoch

If the commercial TV media tell the truth about ‘Big Pharma’, they will lost perhaps 70% of their advertising revenue.  If the military contractors/media conglomerates speak too harshly about the truth of war, the casualties to both our own and to innocent civilians, that billions and trillions of dollars are being spent pre-, during and post-war, hell would break lose and Americans would demand an end to the madness.  So they periodically report that there are wars going on, but rather quickly and just in passing, without too much gruesome, honest detail. Who needs it?


Edward R. Murrow

I was watching Good Night, Good Luck again recently, the story of journalist Ed Morrow and his reportage and critique of Senator Joe McCarthy at the time.  Fascinating to see how the news has changed and how the TV stations willingness to really speak truth to power has muted.  The whole trajectory of what news reportage has become has not only muted but has become moot.  News is entertainment folks! and is predicated on ratings.  Truthful reporting just has no place in the hierarchy, until or unless you turn to alternative news, such as you’ll find on Progressive Radio Network, Pacifica Radio, Free Speech TV, Link TV and of course, on A Better World.  We aren’t really a news show as such, though we comment on and dialogue about items in the news to elucidate aspects of human nature and how to address, then transform parts of it.

Now what’s going on is our belief systems and assumptions are being challenged across the board.  What modern medicine has taught us, rather, programmed us to ‘believe’ throughout the childhoods of the baby-boomers, we are finding to be largely untrue.  We’ve also found much of what was framed as medically scientific was really a series of constructed deceits, designed to minimize ignorance and maximize profit.  Why would a doctor talk about cigarettes as “stress reducing” on TV?  Why would doctors recommend vaccines if they really understood what was in them, the effects of mercury on the body or the recommendation of chemotherapy when so much science indicates that it has very little therapeutic value? 


Mary Baker Eddy

Our belief systems are being challenged across the board, which is why this week’s shows are, from this point of view, particularly interesting.  Lillian Schwabe, at age 100 is as nimble as she may have been at less than half her age, and more than most at half her age.  In Christian Science, drugs, surgery, radiation, not even nutrition are the bases of the healing.  The mind, heart and soul are united in faith, in imagery in commitment to health and God’s will for healing.  How interesting! and it has worked countless times at this point, since Mary Baker Eddy came up with it in the late 19th century.  So talk about belief systems changing or a paradigm shift occurring.  Can you imagine if millions of people believed and practiced this, what would happen to our healthcare system?!  Want to change things?  Change your beliefs.

And to continue the metaphor, Lynne McTaggart’s work, in a different way but wholly analogously, helps us to shift paradigms and shake up/revise belief systems as well. Our entire sense of Self can be wonderfully disrupted when you read any of her work, from The Field, to The Bond, because life ‘ain’t’ what we thought it to be.  It is actually a good deal richer!  More chockful of potential!  But to get this, you must leave your old beliefs at the door and enter empty-handed. 

So I invite you all to tune in Monday eve. to hear Lillian Schwabe and I, and Tuesday evening to watch Lynne and I, in both cases, wholly disrupting the ordinary view of what life is and what’s possible.  And bring it closer to probable.  Both are special, intelligent and gifted women and it is my honor to get to know them and spend time.

Meanwhile, in order to survive on our lovely planet, if there are massive belief system changes rather immediately, our survival may be at stake.

Meanwhile, while we’re trying to get our own belief systems altered and opened, people are dying all over the world in wars begun by the U.S., perpetuated by the U.S. with our tax dollars (how does that make you feel?), by policies perpetuated by our U.S. government, and children dying daily of cholera in Haiti.  We have answers, we have some solutions.  On our website at www.abetterworld.net we will have a series of products that you can buy through us for the children and people of Haiti.  Please take a look and become part of the solution.

Detoxify, Nourish & Feel-Look Younger at A Better World Wellness


Gazzy Parman

When people drink IN Extreme Energy Complex to amp up the bio-electricity of their cells in the morning, they feel better all day. When they take Maxodin to keep their brain and nervous system working harmoniously and coherently their mental clarity, memory and health begin to change.

Is anti-aging or “healthy longevity” interesting ideas to you? If so, look at GSH-IGNITE and Adrenal Reboot which, when combined with a good dietary and exercise regimen, one gathers a significant amount of energy and can lose weight as well. Glutathione, one of the body’s most powerful anti-oxidants, is the basis of GSH.

On weekends, for exercise and pleasure, I play paddle-tennis, a scaled-down form of tennis. When I get up in the morning, I take IN Extreme Energy daily, and just before going to work out or to play, I take GSH-IGNITE and oh my, has my game improved due to greater strength, energy, stamina and endurance. My fellow teammates probably think I’ve been taking steroids! Because these are all-natural and largely organic, A Better World makes these available to its community and the public.

To read more in depth about these or to order them, go to: www.abetterworld.net/wellness. This is one of the easiest, least expensive ways to seriously care for one’s health. There is more….look out for next issues!
