Some facts about how great it is to be so spiritual in America
As you read this, don’t only be shocked, think about why and what this actually says.
First watch this….
The video is from the small ego centered view of America, within America. It will actually blow your mind so yes, really, go back and watch the entire thing.
More facts for ya to put into perspective.
I say we live in a police state. I have been involved in many many arguments about this very fact over many years, but now, today, with all the civil liberties that have been revoked by our wonderful government now after 9/11. You are not free, but you never were. that was a complete facade.
The incarceration rate in the United States of America is the highest in the world. As of 2009, the incarceration rate was 743 per 100,000 of national population (0.743%).

Expenditure on our Health in America. Remember, you need to spend on health when you are not healthy!!! and most of what America is touting as healthy today is actually not healthy what so ever. Maybe better than Burger King but not much due to the state and health of the vessel itself but check out all the other posts for that information and what is health.
The United States spends the most on health care, but this does not translate into better care for everyone, as the United States has one of the highest inequalities in health compared to other developed countries. The United States ranks among the worst OECD countries for child health well-being, having an inequality higher than average. Although the United States has the highest national income per person, it continues to rank as the worst country for income inequality. This inequality is thought to explain why it has the highest index of health and social problems (mental problems) compared to other wealthy nations.
North America has 34 percent of the world’s biomass due to obesity, yet it only makes up 6 percent of the world population.
I wonder if all that weight is throwing a larger wobble or bulge off on the rotation of the earth on its axis, slowing us down even further as we move on the ecliptic?
25 percent of adults take at least 4 prescriptions regularly
Obesity rates in the United States are among the highest in the world. Approximately one-third of the adult population is obese and an additional third is overweight; the obesity rate, the highest in the industrialized world, has more than doubled in the last quarter-century. Obesity-related type 2 diabetes is considered epidemic by health care professionals. The infant mortality rate of 6.06 per thousand places the United States 176th highest out of 222 countries. Infant mortality rates in Finland, Japan, and Sweden are one third the US rate.
Number of deaths for leading causes of death in America:
- Heart disease: 597,689
- Cancer: 574,743
- Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 138,080
- Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 129,476
- Accidents (unintentional injuries): 120,859
- Alzheimer’s disease: 83,494
- Diabetes: 69,071
- Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis: 50,476
- Influenza and Pneumonia: 50,097
- Intentional self-harm (suicide): 38,364
Key indicators of health and the health care system are substantially lower in the United States compared to other countries. The United States has some of the most state-of-the-art health-care facilities, yet behavioral factors such as physical inactivity, smoking, and dietary choices, combined with inequalities, result in poor performance.
As I have said it before, Disneyland is the perfect explaination of America, its fake. You as an American are so amazingly ignorant to the reality of the world out there. The idea that we have the “most state-of-the-art health-care facilities, yet behavioral factors” …. as above, well it states the health of the mind, it states the health of the consciousness. While we might pat ourselves on the back for being so green and recycling we are also the highest consumer. That is how sick we are.
Per capita ecological footprint (EF), or ecological footprint analysis (EFA), is a means of comparing consumption and lifestyles, and checking this against nature’s ability to provide for this consumption. In 2007, the average biologically productive area per person worldwide was approximately 1.8 global hectares (gha) per capita. The U.S. footprint per capita was 9.0 gha, and that of Switzerland was 5.6 gha, while China‘s was 1.8 gha. The WWF claims that the human footprint has exceeded the biocapacity (the available supply of natural resources) of the planet by 20%.
|Country||Population in millions||Ecological Footprint in gha/pers||Biocapacity in gha/pers||Ecological remainder (if positive) in gha/pers|
|United Arab Emirates||6.25||10.68||0.85||-9.83|
. . . the average world citizen has an eco-footprint of about 2.7 global average hectares while there are only 2.1 global hectare of bioproductive land and water per capita on earth. This means that humanity has already overshot global biocapacity by 30% and now lives unsustainabily by depleting stocks of “natural capital” – Rees, William (2010), “The Human Nature of Unsustainability”, in Heinberg, Richard and Leich,Daniel, The Post Carbon Reader: Managing the 21st Century Sustainability Crisis, Watershed Media, ISBN 978-0-9709500-6-2
Yet, we continue to want kids not even thinking about that we are bringing a soul into this world, making it about them or the cost to the world with our over population but because our clock is running out and WE want kids. How selfish and self centered. Amazingly so.
Most American families want two children. To achieve this, the average woman spends about five years pregnant, postpartum or trying to become pregnant, and three decades—more than three-quarters of her reproductive life—trying to avoid an unintended pregnancy.
• Most individuals and couples want to plan the timing and spacing of their childbearing and to avoid unintended pregnancies, for a range of social and economic reasons. In addition, unintended pregnancy has a public health impact: Births resulting from unintended or closely spaced pregnancies are associated with adverse maternal and child health outcomes, such as delayed prenatal care, premature birth and negative physical and mental health effects for children.
You can read “The Secret Life of the Unborn Child” by Thomas Verny with John Kelly for more on birth trauma and it’s results in later life.
• For these reasons, reducing the unintended pregnancy rate is a national public health goal. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Healthy People 2020 campaign aims to reduce unintended pregnancy by 10%, from 49% of pregnancies to 44% of pregnancies, over the next 10 years.
• Currently, about half (51%) of the 6.6 million pregnancies in the United States each year (3.4 million) are unintended (this is how conscious we are really)
1 out of every 4 people on this planet live without electricity and live with and in tune with nature as humans were meant to. They do not stay up late messing up our biorhythms and health and make night into day with electricity.
If humans were truly at home under the light of the moon and stars, we would go in darkness happily, the midnight world as visible to us as it is to the vast number of nocturnal species on this planet. Instead, we are diurnal creatures, with eyes adapted to living in the sun’s light. This is a basic evolutionary fact, even though most of us don’t think of ourselves as diurnal beings any more than we think of ourselves as primates or mammals or Earthlings. Yet it’s the only way to explain what we’ve done to the night: We’ve engineered it to receive us by filling it with light.
This kind of engineering is no different than damming a river. Its benefits come with consequences—called light pollution—whose effects scientists are only now beginning to study. Light pollution is largely the result of bad lighting design, which allows artificial light to shine outward and upward into the sky, where it’s not wanted, instead of focusing it downward, where it is. Ill-designed lighting washes out the darkness of night and radically alters the light levels—and light rhythms—to which many forms of life, including ourselves, have adapted. Wherever human light spills into the natural world, some aspect of life—migration, reproduction, feeding—is affected. But we don’t really even think of those things… our luxuries and comforts are more important.
And really…. you don’t think for a second what health hazards on yourself that has and Western Science hasn’t really looked too deeply into it either. But just think….
Happy Planet Index
|2009 Happy Planet Index
Nine out of the ten top countries are located in the Caribbean Basin, despite high levels of poverty. The ranking is led by Costa Rica for the second time in a row, and its lead is due to its very high life expectancy which is second highest in the Americas, and higher than the U.S., experienced well-being higher than many richer nations and a per capita footprint one third the size of the U.S. Among the top 40 countries by overall HPI score, only four countries have a GDP per capita of over US$15,000. The highest ranking OECD country is Israel in 15th place, and the top Western European nation is Norway in 29th place, just behind New Zealand in 28th. Among the top five world’s biggest economies in terms of GDP, Japan has the highest ranking in 45th place, followed by Germany in 46th, France is placed 50th, China 60, and the U.S. is ranked 105, mainly due to its environmental footprint of 7.2, the seventh highest of all countries rated for the 2012 index.
and now, just to throw it on the top like a cherry…. as of 2013…..

313.9 million population in America, 15 million practice yoga and spend how much??????? on yoga “products” each year.
20% of america “does” yoga.
That is…………… way beyond…..
and you certainly are the elite. Mostly with those Lululemon yoga duds your sporting. Could have supported a family for weeks for what you paid for them.
A study by the World Institute for Development Economics Research at United Nations University reports that the richest 1% of adults alone owned 40% of global assets in the year 2000, and that the richest 10% of adults accounted for 85% of the world total. The bottom half of the world adult population owned barely 1% of global wealth.
- An American having the average income of the bottom US decile is better-off than 2/3 of world population.”
- “The top 10 percent of the US population has an aggregate income equal to income of the poorest 43 percent of people in the world, or differently put, total income of the richest 25 million Americans is equal to total income of almost 2 billion people.”
- In 2005, 43% of the world population (3.14 billion people) have an income of less than U.S. $2.5/day. 21.5% of the world population (1.4 billion people) have an income of less than US$1.25/day.
- In 1981, 60.4% of the world population (2.73 billion people) had an income of less than US$ 2.5/day and 42.2% of the world population (1.91 billion people) had an income of less than US$ 1.25 /day.
And you spent how much on YOGA. So aware! so conscious!
So let me get this straight……
you live in the most so called technologically advanced country that makes poverty look like Beverly Hills compared to the rest of the world
You live a lavish life beyond anything you can possibly fathom
You spend excessive amounts of money on yoga toys that have absolutely nothing to do with yoga nor would anyone that is really living a yogic life be involved in that consumption
Even the price of your YOGA magazines is more than many people in the world make in a week and even a month.
That BS 200 hour yoga teacher training you took when you went to Curacao or the Bahamas or where ever it was for two weeks…….. you spent more than most people on this planet make in a year for a certificate in something you can now teach that you know nothing about…. but now you belong to the club.
Yeah, just checking to make sure you knew….
Oneness my ass.
