OSHO - The Rebel


"People are afraid, very much afraid of those who know themselves. They have a certain power, a certain aura and a certain magnetism, a charisma that can take out alive, young people from the traditional imprisonment....

The enlightened man cannot be enslaved - that is the difficulty - and he cannot be imprisoned.... Every genius who has known something of the inner is bound to be a little difficult to be absorbed; he is going to be an upsetting force. The masses don't want to be disturbed, even though they may be in misery; they are in misery, but they are accustomed to the misery. And anybody who is not miserable looks like a stranger.

The enlightened man is the greatest stranger in the world; he does not seem to belong to anybody. No organization confines him, no community, no society, no nation.

The master of his own destiny. On his shoulder is an emblem of the sun, and the torch he hold in his right hand symbolizes the light of his own hart - own truth.

Wether he is wealthy or poor, the Rebel is really a emperor because he has broken the chains of society's repressive conditioning and opinions. He has formed himself by embracing all the colours of the rainbow, emerging from the dark and formless roots of his unconscious past and growing wings to fly into the sky.

His very way of being is rebellious - not because he is fighting against anybody or anything, but because he has discovered his own true nature and is determined to live in accordance with it. The eagle is his spirit animal,
a messenger between earth and sky.

The Rebel challenges us to courageous enough to take the responsibility for who we are and to live our
truth."

Richard C. Hoagland - Comet Elenin as a Time Capsule, Norway Attack & The Messengers of Horus



Richard C. Hoagland is a former museum space science Curator, a former NASA Consultant and was science advisor to Walter Cronkite and CBS News. In the early 1970's, Hoagland proposed to Carl Sagan (along with Eric Burgess) the placement of a "message to Mankind" aboard Pioneer 10 -- humanity's "first" unmanned probe of Jupiter. Since then he has been pioneering the pursuit of uncovering the hidden data of our solar system. 

He is the author of several books, probably most famous for his theories on the face on Mars. His website enterprisemission.com, is updated regularly with analytical research into current anomalies on our planet and way beyond. In this interview, Richard shares his convincing theory about Comet Elenin, its symbolism, purpose and message which is a positive one. He rips apart the fear-porn propaganda about Comet Elenin as this is a key point in time and someone or something is intervening to steer consciousness into another direction. 

Could it be that Elenin is a time capsule sent by our ancestors containing important information crucial for this time? Then, Hoagland weaves together an intense eye-opener which connects Comet Elenin with September 11, the original masonic message, the bombing in Norway and the secret space program.

De Noorse massamoordenaar schokt ons moreel gevoel en tart onze verbeelding. Maar hij is niet gek, of althans: er is method in de madness. En het is niet zomaar een misdaad. Dit is een politieke daad, schrijft Lieven De Cauter.

Natuurlijk is het ook waanzin. Maar het één sluit het ander niet uit.

Als deze wandaad iets bewijst, dan is het wel dit: ‘politieke waanzin’ is niet langer een overspannen beeldspraak en de jihadi’s hebben er zeker geen monopolie op. Hun meest extreme tegenstrevers zijn even waanzinnig. We hebben hier te maken met wat ik zou willen noemen ‘psychotische politiek’. De aanhangers ervan lijden aan een vorm van ‘politieke psychose’.

And Ethiopia, a center of the drought, has virtually sealed off its rebellious Ogaden region from outside observers and aid providers, including the International Red Cross, in order to conceal its brutal, collective punishment of ethnic Somalis.

'Neo-Nazi, masonic-lodge mindset - Norway's new brand of terror'



The man facing 21 years in jail for carrying out Friday's twin attack on Norway is due to make his first appearance in court to explain his actions. Prosecutors are set to ask for his trial to be closed to the public and media.

32 year old Anders Behring Breivik has admitted responsibility for a bomb attack in the capital, and a massacre at a youth camp. However he's denied any criminal guilt. 93 people reportedly lost their lives, but police say that number could be revised downwards.

The bomb in Oslo targeted buildings connected to Norway's governing Labour Party, and the youth camp on Utoya island was also run by it. Investigative journalist Tony Gosling told RT the case highlights a new brand of terrorism.

Max Keiser: Obama financially lynched by racist GOP



Greece let out a sigh of relief this week as - after long talks - EU leaders finally agreed on how to help the country avoid defaulting on its debt. Athens will now receive a new bailout worth an estimated 109 billion euros. 

The plan was agreed after Greece approved severe austerity measures, sending thousands onto the streets in protest. The rescue will also involve lowering interest rates on Greek debt and extending the repayment period. The package also doubles the time given to bankrupt Portugal and Ireland to pay back their own loans. 

Meanwhile, Spain - which has the highest unemployment rate in the Eurozone - saw thousands of protestors converge on Madrid on Saturday. They camped out in the city centre, after marching from across the country. For more on where the Eurozone is headed RT talks to financial analyst and host of the 'Keiser Report' here on RT, Max Keiser.

Wie heeft er baat bij aanslagen in Noorwegen?

Zonder terrorisme zou de wereld een stuk vrijer zijn. Burgers wensen een vrije wereld , en zijn dus dientengevolge fel gekant tegen terrorisme. Regeringen wensen geen vrijheid. Zij willen controle en macht. Wie heeft er dus baat bij terrorisme? Cui bono? Zij die de macht in handen hebben, en alleen zij. Waar is de meeste macht in deze wereld geconcentreerd? Niet in het regeringscentrum in Oslo, maar in de spelonken van de KKKnesset, de holen van de roversbendes in Washington en New York, en in de paleizen en de Zwitserse en Britse hoofdkwartieren van de rijkste familie op deze planeet. 

Terrorisme geeft de Macht de kans om steeds verdergaande repressieve wetten te bedenken, het land vol te hangen met camera's en de luchthavens te voorzien van kankerverwekkende naaktscanners. Lees verder.

Strong explosion rocks Oslo, two dead, 15 injured in 'car bomb' blast



Norway's capital Oslo has been hit by a powerful explosion in the very center of the city, damaging parliamentary buildings including Prime Minister's office. Two people are reported to be dead, and at least 15 injured, but witnesses say dozens are lying in the streets covered in blood. Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg is said to be safe.

Preliminary reports suggest it was a car bomb, but some sources say the explosion took place inside the building of Norway's biggest tabloid newspaper VG. The blast was so powerful that it smashed all the windows in the 17-storey building. Witnesses say the nearby oil ministry building nearby has caught fire, with thick smoke seen coming from the block. Some reports suggest the blast was followed by a second. Police are evacuating surrounding buildings, and searching the area for more explosives.

Analysis: Is Britain more corrupt than it thinks?

(Reuters) - Britons love to lecture the world about integrity and the rule of law, but the News of the World phone hacking scandal has laid bare a web of collusion between money, power, media and the police.

Far from the innocent, upright democracy of its self-image, Britain is showing a seamy side that anti-corruption campaigners say is getting worse and may be politically explosive as society becomes more unequal due to the financial and economic crises. Read more.

It was meant to be the first day of their summer holidays. But MPs were hauled back to parliament for an emergency debate on the phone hacking scandal which is shaking the core of the British government.
