Tomorrow/Today, Saturday, there is a live stream of Ramtha at the mini-Assay. I am looking forward to spending the day with the old man.

Earlier this week JZ spent some time interviewing on Coast to Coast radio. The entire audio of the interview is posted on youtube and we have posted the links for you in the newsletter. Link Here

Our featured story this week is a real adventure story of a very good friend and fellow RSE student, John Glennie.
John earned Ramtha’s acknowledgement as “Master of the Sea”. Read his amazing “real life” drama of 119 days adrift at sea. This story will be in 2 parts. Watch for part 2 next week Link Here

Did you hear about the freak snow storm in New Zealand? Watch the video of skiers at the beaches.
This is just another sign of global weather changes upon us. Link Here

There is a buzz in the masters’ community about essential oils. Jan LeBaron of Healthy Harvest shares her knowledge of cooking with essential oils. Sounds like a great way to spice up a drab bucket of beans! Link Here

Richard from the Survival Center sent out a summary of this week’s NASA press conference about solar flares and coronal ejections. Thanks, Richard, for keeping us informed. Link Here

I ran into Bruce Palmer today, he told me that he sold so many Rocket Stoves he ordered some more. He has got a super price on them for our community. Link Here

Finally, if you listen to the news you would think that our world is not only financially bankrupt, but morally bankrupt as well. This beautiful story about the integrity of the Japanese people will restore your belief that nobility is alive and well. It might be isolated to a small island in the Pacific, but indeed it flourishes in these humble people. Link Here

Have a great week til we meet again.

Article of the Week
By John Glennie - “Master of the Sea.”

John Glennie, Ram’s “Master of the Sea”, here in his own words is his story of adventure on the high seas. John and his crew hold the world record for survival adrift at sea for 119 days! John is a fascinating, talented character who lives life to the fullest whether on land or sea. This week we are bringing you part one of John’s epic tale. Enjoy part one and stay tuned next week for part 2....

New Zealand is a boating nation where one in four have a boat in their backyard. Our family was no different, except that without knowing where it would lead, I took on a five year apprenticeship in the boat-building trade.

There is also a tradition of young guys building yachts in their backyards and suddenly taking off for Polynesia to loose their virginities. Again we followed tradition. We too had something to loose.

My brother and I sold our motorbikes and bought the plans for a 35 foot plywood trimaran which we built in our parent’s backyard, except for the mast, which we built inside the house after we'd knocked out a couple of walls.

Within two years on apprenticeship wages, we had built and launched “Highlight” then set off for a life of adventure.

No income, no insurance and no knowledge of sailing was no deterrent. Nor were the storms, the fact that I was always terribly seasick the first three days out, and the occasional brutal encounter with whales and rogue waves. Over the ensuing years we covered something like 30,000 nautical miles in “Highlight,” working only long enough to make enough money to buy stores so we could head for the horizon once again.

We were pitifully equipped. No GPS, no winches, no lifelines on the boat. Nothing.

It’s a whole new world out there now. Expensive yachts replacing the build it yourself boats and adventure is relegated to the wealthy or watching it on TV.

We learned the hard way. By going out and doing it.

JZ Knight interviewed on Coast to Coast AM

On Sunday, August 14 from 11PM – 2AM PDT, “Guest host Rob Simone was joined by Founder and President of Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment, JZ Knight, for a discussion about her experiences connected with the channeling of a 35,000 year old warrior from the lost continent of Atlantis, called Ramtha. Knight detailed how she first began channeling this being and how that relationship has evolved over the last three decades. She explained that, initially, people misunderstood her experience, thinking she was a medium. To that end, Knight credited Ramtha with creating the term “channeling,” in the 1980’s, as a way of differentiating what was happening with her, since, when she channels Ramtha, he actually takes over her brain and she leaves her body.”

NASA Press Conference Report

Well, the NASA Press Conference was held on schedule...and....

First, we'll commend the NASA and NOAA scientists who took part in today's press conference for explaining their missions and goals when it comes to studying the sun, Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) and hopefully forecasting space weather with better accuracy in the future.

Second, we'll say that as press conferences go, this was a complete information vacuum.

If you were a scientist interested in the heliosphere and the tremendous difficulties involved in separating data streams and making plasma stand out from the background of space, you might have been really impressed with what has been achieved in that regard.

Recipe of the Week
Cooking with Essential Oils
By Jan LeBaron of Healthy Harvest

Essential Oils Are More Potent Than Herbs
Being concentrated, the essential oils contain virtually all of the plants healing nutrients, oxygenating molecules, amino acid precursors, coenzyme A factors, trace minerals, enzymes, vitamins, hormones and more. And because they are concentrated, Essential Oils are from 50 to 70 times more therapeutically potent than the herbs or plants they are derived from.
Unlike dried herbs, which lose up to 90% of their healing nutrients and oxygen molecules, essential oils do not. Best of all, 100% pure, therapeutic Grade A Essential Oils are freely available and safe for cooking and home use. They are not considered medicine by our governments regulatory agencies, but best fall under the food category.

Gold devotees say they saw all of this coming.
40 years after US stopped using it to back currency, it trades at record highs in part due to economic fears.

Gold, and only gold, will be our salvation when the value of companies, banks, countries and even money itself melts away. Gold, not shifting currencies, is the foundation of wealth and security. Gold is back, for good.

This is the song of the "gold bugs" — the fervent fans of the precious metal who have clung to its investment value for three generations and now glow in the reflected luster of a record price approaching $2,000 for just one ounce.

Monday will mark the 40th anniversary of the United States' abandonment of the gold standard. But gold bugs kept the faith — even when prices stayed under $500 for nearly 25 years after their 1981 peak.

Their passion derided, dismissed as hopelessly out dated doomsayers, their love for the metal seemed irrational.

The gold bug label itself goes back to master of the supernatural Edgar Allen Poe and his story of that name, a tale of golden beetle whose bite sends the hero to a chest of gold and jewels.

It's Time for a Food Fight
Are you as aware of what you are eating as a cow? Cows reject genetically modified food. They can’t read labels, how do they know? We haven’t developed that sixth sense, so we need labels that disclose the presence of GMO’s. Are you ready to take on that fight?

Something Worth Knowing
Sun storms 'could be more disruptive within decades'

Within decades, solar storms are likely to become more disruptive to planes and spacecraft, say researchers at Reading University.

The work, published in Geophysical Research Letters, predicts that once the Sun shifts towards an era of lower solar activity, more hazardous radiation will reach Earth.

The team says the Sun is currently at a grand solar maximum.

This phase began in the 1920s - and has lasted throughout the space age.

Genius Ideas
379-year-old NH farm unsold but gets new farmers

What a great, unlimited idea! I love it when people take action on their inspirations. Perhaps this idea will inspire your own genius idea. Share it with us at

DOVER, N.H. (AP) - It's a good season for the beloved sweet corn on the 379-year-old Tuttle Farm. It also looks good for the crops that weren't there a year ago, produced by a group of visiting young farmers - eggplant, peppers, pumpkins and sunflowers.

The New Hampshire farm, one of the oldest continuously operated family farms in America, raised a lot of interest - and emotion - a year ago when members of the 11th generation of Tuttles announced they were putting it up for sale. Faced with debt and their own mortality, they said the 12th generation is either too young or too entrenched in other careers. A bit of history and tradition was drawing to a close.

Today, the 135-acre farm is still on the market, even though the asking price has been dropped $800,000, from $3.35 million to $2.55 million.

While the Tuttles wait for a buyer amid an uncertain economy, a new group of farmers unrelated to the family is helping to keep the operation going, trying a variety of crops, livestock and organic farming practices, and may even stay on after it's sold. They receive coaching and equipment from a nonprofit group that acts as a business incubator for farmers.
