My project in Sanctuary is in one of the lowest population density areas in the world where the word pristine still has some meaning.
In the area many even drink the Divine Wine or what is known as Ayahuasca, which is a very potent plant medicine and is what many consider a spiritual teacher plant. It is used primarily for physical, psychological and spiritual healing.
The main function of Ayahuasca is to repair the body as well as the wounded human soul. Interesting that it is legal in both Brazil and the United States. Purifying and cleansing ourselves brings about a sense of lightness, a greater sense of ease and movement within our bodies.
Life force can flow through us with less effort, with more power. Rarely does this happen if we are toxic. The above picture is from the last fifty meters of a river that meets another just 100 yards below the retreat survival center we hope to restart and finish building this year.
One can drink right from this river 365
days a year though when it rains it surges up and last year washed
our suspension bridge away.
This photo is the same river area at the foot of our land taken when the river is up during the rainy season.
It matters where we live and it matters
where we heal and often the only way we can cure ourselves of the
diseases we have is to retreat back to nature to detoxify our mind,
body and spirit. The most toxic place to be is in a hospital and of
course most cities are toxic gas chambers.
I started talking about Sanctuary three years ago. I hope that things will remain standing in commodity countries like Canada and Brazil but there is no previewing with clarity what a collapse of the first world will engender.
I feel anxious and it is difficult to
plan ahead because so many things are in the process of falling
apart. But I am already in the southern hemisphere and for all the
money in the world would not want to be in the States or in Europe.
As the Earthís current El NiŮo dissipates, the planet will return to the long term temperature decline brought on by the Sunís historic reduction in output, the on-going ďsolar hibernation.Ē
In follow-up to the specific global
temperature forecast posted in SSRC Press Release 4-2009, the SSRC
advises that in order to return to the long term decline slope from
the current El NiŮo induced high temperatures, a significant global
cold weather re-direction must occur.
Itís the place where I will go if there is a widespread collapse in Brazil or if there is a nuclear war for Sanctuary is situated in a valley ringed by mountains and ridges. Meanwhile we will continue to live in a delightful city on the Brazilian coast but will support all aspects of the project from a distance except when I go on my own healing retreats.
But it will be no joke living in any
city in the world if things collapse down as far as they are
previewed to. As I say these words I know few can stomach the truth
though I am not the only one shouting out this message.
The overwhelming debt and exploding deficits will lead to,
Tie that in with crop failures and food shortages and winter weather that gets colder and colder and do we need to know anything else to do everything we can to get out?
I know the virtual impossibility of this for most people; pulling up ones roots is not only not easy but very expensive in our modern world. Some say that people who can already afford to pick up and leave the country or have their feet in two places have already done that.
The ones who can afford it have already
purchased land abroad and are moving their assets out.
Cash karma time for the human race.
I talked recently to Bryun Kayler, who is without doubt and extraordinaire guitarist.
I am presenting links below to his music not only because many of you will enjoy sampling his music but also because he will donate 50% of music sales to our Sanctuary Retreat Center Project.
His overwhelming passion for his instrument and his music has produced an incomparable guitar style that has him using all his fingers simultaneously, like a keyboardist, creating truly astonishing results.
He can play the bass part, rhythm
(accompaniment) and melody together for each of his unique and
amazing arrangements or compositions, while at the same time
embellish them with harp-like arpeggios, generating a rich,
full-bodied sound. His songs contain great melodies, a good musical
feel and catchy, clever songs that stick with you.

My older readers know of my project in the interior highlands of Brazil.
This picture is the view from the top of
the valley and as you can see overpopulation is not a problem here.
It was in 1991 that I parachuted into this beautiful region, whatís
called the high chapada about 200 kilometers north of Brasilia the
federal capital. My heart has made a good home in this beautiful
country though presently I live far away on the northeast coast in a
There is only two nuclear plants, no
coal fired electrical plants emitting friendly CO2 and
highly poisonous mercury, plenty of good food and friendly people.
We have our problems here but insane economics is not one of them.
Brazil has prudently been paying down its international debt for
years and is now considered a creditor country with enough money to
spare to pay off all its debts if the leaders thought that was a
prudent thing to do with the countryís cash.
To write a book (HeartHealth) on love
and the nature of the human heart because this is a land that still
has heart and soul, at least when it comes to music and football
Sorry the Garden of Eden can only be
found right now in ones own heart and perhaps with a life partner or
a small group consciousness.
Just in terms of its water resources
itís a water mine and a water park.
This is me walking across the bridge we built that got washed away last year in the rainy season.
The tiny little town of about perhaps a 100 houses is the setting on one side of the river and we are on the other. Right now one has to walk across the stones that are set in the river but thatís impossible when it rains. Part of the project integrates with the townís people who are simple good folk and some are actually decedents of the slaves that were once in the area.
There are plenty of hippies and end of
the world people from Europe and other parts of Brazil there as
We have a whole network of affiliates
who are supporting our work and we are open to forming partnerships
with others to bring IMVA publications into other languages and
countries. Already we have IMVAR coming on line in Russia and are
trying to do the same in the Far East.
This is an extremely serious moment with a huge part of the worldís population now vulnerable to catastrophe though would you believe, in the city I live, you would never ever think there were problems in the world.
I have published an essay called It
Matters Where You Live and it was in great part about mercury
pollution, something most people just do not want to talk about.
It would take a lifetime to explore all the sweet spots in the region and really itís impossible to count all the waterfalls on the high chapada.
Yes some people have all the luck and
can live in places like this though it is my belief that we are all
going to struggle with what is coming.
When I shared about our shrine dedicated
to Mother Mary with this woman yesterday who owns the land upstream
she also felt these Goosebumps. It is my belief that one can set
ones sails from such feelings.
It was a good place I came to 18 years ago. Emigration from ones country is not a little thing but if one is living in the first world and has the resources itís probably now or never. I would have thought many would have fled the states just because of the mercury pollution.
See the following map:
In Texas the mercury pollution is so intense it was possible for researchers to measure autism prevalence by education district finding of course that areas with the highest mercury emissions had the highest autism rates.
I would have thought things like this
would have driven out hordes of people but that is not the nature of
people in the first world. Now there are many reasons to try to
escape with fewer and fewer that have the resources and courage to
Luckily I have a builder partner on site
that I can trust with my checkbook and my life and his brother is
the one who this woman from Uruguay trusts.
When I was young I took myself much too
seriously and suffered with the terrible disease of self-obsession
and self-pity. Luckily through two decades of meditation and
devotion to love I found my way out of that nightmare.
In terms of Sanctuary and getting
involved with us please inquire only if you have the strongest
feelings about participating and have the resources to do so.
So to build a fortress of Light I obviously need a lot of help.
Brazil has already emerged from the worst of the recession.
Posting new stock market highs, decreasing unemployment and strong GDP figures which along with all time low lending rates and a pro-active government, Brazil is currently one of the strongest economic powers in the world.
This summer Brazil lent $10 billion to the IMF, which is amazing, given that only a few years ago they were borrowing from the IMF.
Brazil also holds historically high USD deposits (not a very good idea), an abundance of newly discovered oil and an export industry that is going from strength to strength though in the future there is no security as the first world tanks.

He is my builder but now he is also a partner in the project, for without him I simply could not have continued on. He has eight brothers and sisters in the area and I kid with people that he has a cousin behind every tree.
remember three years ago leaving him with my blank check book as I
had to be elsewhere (with wife and kids) for three months.
A great part of Sanctuary is bound with the local peoples and their support has been crucial.
I fully intend to demonstrate another
way of being in the world that transcends social and economic
levels. Those of us who have more need a new way of relating to
those who are far less fortunate in a material sense if we are ever
to see a better world. Seems like the elite have been more like
sucking vampires rather than giving, and thatís mostly how we got
into the mess we are currently experiencing.
The structure will also double as a
model for my builder Macondes. The mayor of our town helped him
organize a building company and we will support and promote him and
his team that can provide full support to purchase land and build a
survival center for those who have the resources to escape to a
warmer and more pristine environment.
When I had trouble with someone trying to steal my land and building away from me last year most of the local town people came to my aid in a formal petition to the judge and that won my cause. Learning to develop deep and meaningful community relationships are important for everyone today because together we will stand, divided we will fall.
That is, by the way, the name of a
future essay of mine in progress.
Vladimir Paar said,
The Ice Age ďcould happen in five, 10, 50, or 100 years, or even later. We canít predict it precisely, but it will come. The reality is that mankind needs to start preparing for the ice age. We are at the end of the global-warming period.
The ice age is to follow.
Paar says it will still be possible for man to survive in the ice age, but the spending on energy will be enormous.
With prices of food set for large
increases, investing in
survival foods makes financial sense as
well. Everyone who has paper assets should transfer that affluence
to gold right now as the ultimate store of wealth that will protect
hard work and savings.
Assumptions are one of our basic ego processes, and when they get shattered we tend to shatter. We build much of the edifices of our consciousness on assumptions but in the end, if they crumble, an average person (TV couch potatoes for instance) will go down like the World Trade Towers.
But the cause is not from above (like
the planes hitting the top floors) but from below, like in the
foundations being blown out at the roots of the structure. In this
case itís the structure of our consciousness and our ability to cope
and understand that we need to deal with next.
I donít talk about this kind of stuff
much but something must be nudging me in the moment to do so. I
guess what I am saying or trying to admit is that I have a divine
mission - a deep purpose - that is one of the most precious things
one can have in life. Many psychologists define fulfillment in terms
of meaning and purpose.
Yes my purpose has been to lead a
revolution in medicine and provide to as much of humanity as
possible a life raft of safe and effective medicinals - the kind
medical officials and even other people (as we shall see tomorrow)
donít want you to know about or use.
Doctors and medical organizations, as
well as government officials, love to use fear when talking about
medicine, but the greatest thing we should fear is the principles
and practices of contemporary medicine.
Imagination is more important than
I am under no illusion about being divinely led by the nose into what I have discovered, into what I have created.
Funny I did not even open up my
imagination until I was about 38, and thatís now 20 years ago.
Thatís when I started writing my first poetry, which eventually
evolved into divine verse. Then divine medicine. I donít think any
of us is that intelligent but when we plug into the divine beings
that surround us we get supercharged with what they have to offer
our minds and beings.
It suddenly became obvious to me that if
I could not imagine the changes necessary for myself, and if we as a
race cannot imagine how we need to be to become a nobler race of
beings, neither I nor we will get to a new landing that we can be
more proud of.
Creating the full picture would be a
long-term detailed challenge but the first piece of the puzzle is
clear. Those at the top, those who aspire to take responsibility for
the life and wellbeing of others, have to be perfect listeners.
If we reach a point that we can listen to anything, even the things that point to our own weaknesses, our own Achillesí heel(s), then we qualify for the noblest of all the necessary works that there ever was for humanity.
We can become servants of earth,
servants of a race of beings whose divine mission and purpose is the
evolution of our race as a whole. Perfect listeners cannot separate
themselves from anybody or anything because thatís the meaning of
listening on a perfect level.
That too can be ours again, luckily,
before we are perfect and in truth, pure love and pure listening are
one and the same thing.
