Manly Palmer Hall was a Canadian-born author and mystic. He is perhaps most famous for his work The Secret Teachings of All Ages: An Encyclopedic Outline of Masonic, Hermetic, Qabbalistic and Rosicrucian Symbolical Philosophy, which is widely regarded as his magnum opus, and which he published at the age of 27.
He has been widely recognized as a leading scholar in the fields of religion, mythology, mysticism, and the occult.
In 1934, Hall founded the Philosophical Research Society (PRS) in Los Angeles, California, dedicating it to an idealistic approach to the solution of human problems. The PRS claims to be non-sectarian and entirely free from educational, political, or ecclesiastical control, and the Society’s programs stress the need for the integration of philosophy, religion, and science into one system of instruction. The PRS Library, a public facility devoted to source materials in obscure fields, has many rare and scarce items now impossible to obtain elsewhere.
In 1973 (47 years after writing The Secret Teachings of All Ages), Hall was recognized as a 33º Mason (the highest honor conferred by the Supreme Council of the Scottish Rite), at a ceremony held at PRS on December 8th, despite never being initiated into the physical craft.
In his over 70-year career, Hall delivered approximately 8,000 lectures in the United States and abroad, authored over 150 books and essays, and wrote countless magazine articles.

You are God. A very important message for all to hear. I have been lead to the same understanding over the few brief years I have spent here on Earth. I do hope as many people as possible can hear this message and consider it. Our world cannot wait for us to awaken much longer. We must make the change within so we can save all that is without!

“If we’re all one then why are we all divided … ?” ~ Nahko Bear
Greetings California Roots Family! Here is the their entire set of Nahko & Medicine For The People performing at the 5th annual California Roots Music & Arts Festival in Monterey in May of 2014. This was one of the highest energy sets of the entire weekend and commented on as a favorite performance of many. If you haven’t heard of Nahko before, your in for a treat. Be sure to check out and follow them on all their social sites and buy their music right now. It is truly medicine for the people.
Oregon-native Nahko, born a mix of Apache, Puerto Rican, and Filipino cultures and adopted into an American family, suffered an identity crisis from an early age. But the unifying power of music entered his life as a healing remedy, when he took up the piano at age six. Armed with his newfound talent, he set out to bridge the cultural gaps dividing his own psyche and began producing a public, musical journal of his journey toward personal, spiritual, and communal healing.
From his hometown of Portland to the shores of Hawaii or Bali, wherever he has traveled, Nahko is joined by a tribe of culturally alienated truth seekers for whom Nahko’s story resonates with their own, and who find redemption in his voice, guitar, flute, and drum. Whether solo or with the dynamic group of musical troubadours known as “Medicine for the People,” Nahko delivers a soulful dose of curative vibrations that moves audiences to dance, laugh, and cry. His ‘spirited redemption music’ lays bear the scars of cultural wounds, environmental wrongs, and social injustices. His lyrics bear the burden of heavy messages, but the load is lightened by agile melodies and driving rhythms that coerce all who bear witness into spirited, purifying, movement. His humor disarms, and his lyrical stories open listeners to the power of “Real Talk Music”—songs that reveal an honesty and depth so raw, it inspires an internal revival that echoes out into the world. Sometimes exuberant, sometimes savage, but always transformational, Nahko makes the movement move.

One of my favorite modern electronic artists!
During the last 13 years I have
been composing a lot of music
for different compilations around
I felt that today most of those
tracks have fallen into shadow.
I decided to collect some of the
tracks, make up-to-date mixes
and give them a fresh mastering
to bring them back to life again.
The outcome is 3 albums that are
called Red, Green and Blue
— the RGB collection.
All music written and produced by
Magnus Birgersson @
Studio Jupiter during different time periods.
Graphic design and concept:
Front Cover Design: Magnus Birgersson &
Compiled: Magnus Birgersson
Audio mastering: Vincent Villuis @ Ultimae Studios
World Wide release on all Major Digital platforms : 5 June 2014

This show from National Geographic looks at drug use and abuse and the effects drugs have on a human body.
National Geographic has a very negative view of any drug use and so their take is biased in my opinion, but the series does offer some good insights into the chemical games we all play with our bodies and minds. Please enjoy this clip from “Drugged – How Marijuana Works”.

Petteri Sariola (1984) is a phenomenon, mostly known for his percussive approach on the acoustic guitar. He picked it up at the age of 7 but after countless non-functional bands he ended up developing a virtuosic style of his own, covering all the sounds of a full band on an acoustic guitar while singing his heart out. No loops, no backing tracks. Sariola has played almost a thousand shows, toured solo around Europe, USA and Japan and reached millions of viewers on YouTube.
Sariola’s solo albums “Silence!”, “Phases” and Dead Sirius 3000’s “Get Sirius” have all been released in Europe and they are available in Japan by King Records. His latest solo album “Through The Eyes Of Others” is released by both King Records and the American CandyRat Records, the most notable label specialized in fingerstyle guitar music.
He has been awarded with Nokia Young Talent scholarship, Honorary Prize in the Helsinki Funk Awards, City Magazine Guitarist of the year and as the cover article of Akustik Gitarre, the biggest acoustic guitar magazine of Europe.
Sariola shares his time between playing solo acoustic guitar and rocking out with the electric as the frontman of Dead Sirius 3000, a band of pure energy that combines raw rock & roll with killer melody hooks and fusion elements.
Beside his solo work he has collaborated with Doug Wimbish (Madonna, Living Colour), Jon Gomm (UK), Mike Dawes (UK), Don Johnson Big Band, Felix Zenger (James Brown, N.E.R.D.), Osmo Ikonen (Sunrise Avenue), just to mention a few. He enjoys coffee and long walks on a beach. Unfortunately Finland is snowy and dim 8 months per year so you can find him traveling pretty constantly. ~ Candyrat Records | https://www.facebook.com/pages/Candyrat-Records/37903721208 | http://www.candyrat.com/artists/PetteriSariola/
Petteri Sariola’s 3rd solo album “Through The Eyes Of Others” is now available worldwide.
