Would Buddha take the Swine Flu Vaccine?

As of October 23, 2009, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention continue to inundate us with chilling swine flu tales: 46 states report a swine flu outbreak; 20,000 hospitalized with the Swine Flu since April; 1000 swine flu deaths in the US alone. In response, President Obama declared the Swine Flu outbreak a national emergency.

Chilling facts but There's Other Information

Behind this statistical mask, the pharmaceuticals tout their latest miracle drug to combat this enemy. In turn, our government urges and even demands our participation in a massive inoculation.

Panicked, many of us respond in fear. Due to this, people across the country wait in line to receive the swine flu vaccine. In Los Angeles County, according to Dr. Jonathan E. Fielding, the county's director of public health, the county clinics vaccinate about 300 people an hour.

Given this information, what would Buddha do?

Want to Sleep or Feel Better? Change the Energy

An example of Joey Korn’s Prayer Blessing:

To bring your Bed Pattern and Human Energy Pattern into balance, stand at the foot of your bed and say this prayer.

“If it be Thy Will, may the Powers of Nature converge to increase and enhance the beneficial energies and balance any detrimental energies within my being and in my living environment, especially here around my bed, to bring healing and balance to my (our) complete being(s), physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. Work especially with the Bed Pattern and the Human Energy Pattern, for now and into the future, for as long as is appropriate. Amen.”

Dowsing: A Path to Enlightenment — by Joey Korn

When most people think of dowsing, they think of an old-timer using a forked tree branch to find a place to drill for underground water. That's what I used to think too. Now I see dowsing as a powerful tool for self-exploration, for understanding the natural forces of the Universe, and for working knowingly with the Divine and with Nature in our lives.

I learned to dowse in 1986 from a kindly old gentleman who helped me find our septic tank with a pair of cut up coat hangers. He had fashioned them into L-shaped wires (that's why they're called L-rods) and he walked with the long parts pointing ahead of him, using the short parts as handles.

Freedom to Feel

In November of 2004, I suffered a grand mal seizure and was diagnosed with epilepsy. My life changed dramatically, and I began searching for answers. I read book after book with a hunger to find out more about the universe around me as well as the one inside my head.

I later realized that this was the beginning of my path toward self realization. All of my research on subjects ranging from physics to psychology, from cosmology to biology, from science to religion, lead me to the essence of my search: The answer to the question, "Who am I?"

During this period of time many people have come into my life offering me guidance of all kinds. This has always been the case, but I learned to welcome it because I knew there was a message meant for me in everything I experienced.

To paraphrase Eckhart Tolle, "Treat everyone you encounter as a noble messenger." I have done my best to heed his suggestions, as well as those of other spiritual teachers, in the search for my Self.

Finding, Losing and Recovering Heaven on Earth: A Personal Journey

Like most people, I first witnessed Heaven on Earth as a child. Sublime beauty, sensuality, timelessness, serenity and wonder permeated creation. I needed no words for this experience and naturally assumed everyone shared my joy.…
