Last night on Voices from the North I had the pleasure of interviewing an extremely selfless and caring man. Erwin Alber is the founder of the Vaccination Information Network (VINE) which has been helping parents and their children for well over a decade. The VINE page on Facebook currently has over 4400 fans. I encourage you to visit and become a fan of this highly worthwhile cause:

Erwin Alber in Thailand

I call Erwin a selfless man. He does this work altruistically out of a genuine, heartfelt concern for the risks of vaccines with developing children. For a time around the turn of the millennium Erwin published a quarterly magazine called Informed Choices. He had hundreds of subscribers and in its pages gave numerous examples of the risks of vaccines and the experiences of families within the immunization arena.

There is one message from our interview it is imperative to pass on. Through his work with VINE Erwin has had contact with many families with children who have suffered vaccine-induced brain damage to some degree. In most of these cases there was a severe reaction in the child to a vaccine. This could have taken the form of screaming, convulsions, very high fever etc. When the concerned parents contacted their doctor it was explained that severe reactions are common in some children. And they were encouraged to continue vaccinating. It was the subsequent inoculation(s) that caused the debilitating, life-changing response. I cannot state too strongly here: if your child has an extreme reaction to a vaccination do not have them jabbed again. Take the time to get informed.

And aside from following the Vaccination Information Network (VINE) on Facebook here are two books Erwin recommends that can be very helpful for parents:

Dr. Leon Chaitow claims in his informative and extensively researched book, Vaccination and Immunization: Dangers, Delusions and Alternatives (What Every Parent Should Know), that research shows vaccines are of questionable efficiency in terms of long-term disease protection. When an outbreak of, say, measles occurs vaccinated children sometimes get the disease and unvaccinated children don’t.

Measles, mumps and chicken pox are childhood illnesses and many claim it is best to allow children to be exposed to these diseases. They then build up immunity for life. Erwin gave an example in the interview of German families getting together to have Measles Parties when there was an outbreak to ensure there children got the disease and then developed a natural, lifetime immunity.

James P. Hilton has written a book titled Burden of Proof : Surviving Cancer, AIDS, and Most Other Diseases. He writes that the viruses causing AIDS, cancers, leukaemia and lymphomas are present in the cultures with which vaccines such as those for measles, mumps, rubella, flu and polio are made.

Erwin has created a couple of offshoots of VINE on Facebook. The first, the Vaccine-Injury Support Network, contains video of neurosurgeon, author and lecturer Dr. Russell Blaylock and more. The second, the Childbirth Information Network, includes stories of childbirth and related issues.

I just bumped into this post this morning and would love to share it here. This is the second time in the last while this concept has come up. As you grow some friendships endure and others fall by the wayside. You find yourself in different company reflecting the new person you have become. Are you happy with that person? Consider how the people around you affect you. Consider with whom you truly wish to invest your time.

Have a great day filled with meaningful, uplifting interactions.

John  

Who Do You Associate With?

It Is Better To Be Alone than In the Wrong Company
Tell me who your best friends are and I will tell you who you are.
If you run with wolves, you will learn how to howl.
But if you associate with eagles, you will learn how to soar to great heights.
A mirror reflects a man’s face, but what he is really like is shown by the kind of friends he chooses.
The simple but true fact of life is that you become like those with whom you closely associate for the good and the bad.
The less you associate with some people, the more your life will improve.
Any time you tolerate mediocrity in others, it increases your mediocrity.
An important attribute in successful people is their impatience with negative thinking and negative acting people.
As you grow, your associates will change.
Some of your friends will not want you to go on. They will want you to stay where they are.
Friends that don’t help you climb will want you to crawl.
Your friends will stretch your vision, not choke your dream.
Those that don’t increase you will eventually decrease you. 

Consider This:

Never receive counsel from unproductive people.
Never discuss your problems with someone incapable of contributing to the solution, because those who never succeed themselves are always first to tell you how.
Not everyone has a right to speak into your life.
You are certain to get the worst of the bargain when you exchange ideas with the wrong person.
Don’t follow anyone who’s not going anywhere.
With some people you spend an evening: with others you invest it.
Be careful where you stop to inquire for directions along the road of life.
Wise is the person who fortifies his life with the right friendships.
Choose to rise…

Don’t settle … and go for your dreams!!!

Knowing one’s Self is only being one’s Self, as there is no second existence. This is Self-realization.

Enlightenment doesn’t care how you get there. ~Thaddeus Golas

I was on the phone last night with an old and dear friend, Geoff, who recently returned to his home in Wellington after living for a couple of years with his family in London. We hadn’t spoken together since his return. He told me a lovely story I’d like to relate to you here. Geoff has been a coach for a long time. About ten years ago he had the privilege of hosting and being the guide for an Indian man (we’ll call him Michael) who’d come to share some of his knowledge with coaches in New Zealand.

Wellington Harbour

Here’s the story in Geoff’s words:

Michael wouldn’t call himself a guru. He is a little man who is very calm and has much wisdom to share. When he walks across a room it is as if the space around him is lit up. Part way through his visit we were sitting together in a busy café in downtown Wellington. I was drinking a coffee, he a green tea. In the course of our conversation he could hear that I was a keen seeker of truth.

Michael asked, “Would you like to know the secret to enlightenment?”

This got me excited. After all my searching I was finally going to find that which I was seeking. “Yes,” I replied with genuine enthusiasm.

“First of all the word ‘enlightenment’ is wrong. It’s ‘lighten-up-enment’”

I was on the edge of my chair, hanging on his every word.

“You see all the people walking past us. Do you think that because they believe something, it is truth?”

“Of course not. Just because we believe it, doesn’t make it truth.”

“Then what makes you think you have exclusive access to truth, Geoff.”

At this point I was feeling a little deflated; much flatter than I had been earlier.

Michael continued, “OK, here’s the first step to enlightenment…”

I was really eager, ready to absorb the coming pearls of wisdom.

“The first step to enlightenment is that you’ve got to realise you are full of shit.”

I looked at Michael, slightly shocked. This definitely wasn’t what I was expecting.

“The second step to enlightenment is that the moment you think you’re right and start using that ‘rightness’ to teach or dominate a conversation go back to step one.”

I was stunned. I sensed there was deep truth in what he said, even if it cut sharply across all my expectations.

“The third step is that the moment you think you’ve got it you haven’t. Go back to step one.

“Keep practicing these three steps and eventually you’ll transcend your ego.”

Have a great day and a great year and may your every step illuminate those around you.

On December 7th, 2009 at 1:30pm GMT Starbucks invited musicians from all over the world to sing together at the same time to raise awareness for AIDS in Africa. In that one breathtaking moment, musicians from 156 countries played “All You Need is Love” together. Watch now, as musicians from all around the world come together and share a song.

Join the million-plus viewers of a stunningly edited music video of people from 156 countries all singing the same song. This is touching stuff. Love is all we need.

My special guest on Voices from the North last night was musician, singer/songwriter, dance-caller and showman extraordinaire, Pete Grassby. Pete is based in the UK but New Zealand is almost a home away from home for him. Aside from last year (when, as he explains, he and his band had too many lucrative gigs in England and Scotland during the Christmas holiday period) Pete has been performing around the North and South Islands each summer for many years.

Pete is a talented hammered dulcimer and melodeon player, although even Pete doesn’t claim to play both at once. We feature selections of tracks from two of his CDs—Cilan and Malvern Hills—during the hour and he sings one ballad a cappella in the studio as well as a set of three songs on one of his melodeons.

Pete will be hosting the Mangonui Ceilidh on Saturday night, January 16th and if it’s anything like the last time he was here two years ago it’ll be standing room only. And, amazingly, considering Pete’s considerable prowess as an entertainer, admission is still only $2 per adult plus a plate to share for supper. Accompanied children are free.

The selections played during the show were:

  • The Metalled Road (or The Forty Pound Wedding) (from Cilan)
  • Orange in Bloom (from Malvern Hills)
  • The Cottager’s Reply (live a cappella)
  • The title track from Malvern Hills
  • A melodeon trio of Jack Robinson’s, The Pleasures of the Town and an untitled Swedish reel
  • We finished with a bit of the last track from Cilan called Trowie Burn

The complete interview can be heard here:

I had the recent pleasure of viewing a DVD called, Be Your Light. The subtitle on the cover is, ‘Igniting the light within ourselves ignites the light in others.’

Be Your Light is a New Zealand-made documentary covering such ground-breaking topics as:

  • The power and effect of cellular memory
  • Goal setting and resonance
  • Powerful healing techniques

It was filmed throughout New Zealand at the Our New Eden gatherings of the film’s producer, Mary Dwen, and her husband, Tony. Music is skilfully provided by The O’Connors.

Amongst the many inspiring contributors is Gary Cook. He tells a delightful story of a man, legally blind, who was able to read an article of Gary’s in a magazine as clearly as if he had the perfect vision of a child. The rest of the magazine’s type was a blur to him.

I came away from watching the 45 minute production feeling uplifted and, frankly, proud to be living in a country populated by so many visionaries with their feet on the earth and their heads in the heavens. This is highly recommended viewing for anyone wishing to find ways to contribute to a saner, healthier planet and intent on reconnecting with nature.

To view three short inspiring clips from the DVD visit: http://www.ourneweden.co.nz/webapps/site/79782/155878/shopping/shopping-view.html?pid=393708&b_id=&find_groupid=27307
