Multi-award-winning author Sol Luckman receives yet another major recognition, this time for Humor in the 15th Annual 2018 Best Book Awards.

The Best Book Awards, sponsored by the American Book Fest, selected Sol Luckman’s irreverently hilarious book of satire for the awake and awakening crowd, The Angel’s Dictionary: A Spirited Glossary for the Little Devil in You, as an award-winning Finalist in the Humor category in the most recent contest.

The competition was open to titles published from 2016-18 and drew over 2,000 entries vying for recognition across numerous categories.

Jeffrey Keen, President and CEO of American Book Fest, commented that this contest attracted “a phenomenal mix of books from a wide array” of independent as well as mainstream publishers.

Keen added, “Our success begins with the enthusiastic participation of authors and publishers and continues with our distinguished panel of industry judges who bring to the table their extensive editorial, PR, marketing, and design expertise.”

St. Martin’s Press, Penguin Random House, Simon & Schuster, Hay House, Palgrave Macmillan and New American Library are just some of the hundreds of publishers that entered books in the competition.

Already established as the Winner in the Humor category of the prestigious 11th Annual 2017 National Indie Excellence Awards and a Finalist for Humor in the 2018 International Book Awards, The Angel’s Dictionary is a comical lexicon for coming to terms with modern culture (or lack thereof), politics (so-called), and life (such as it is).

In its five-star review of this knee-slapping “tour de farce,” Readers’ Favorite had this high praise: “Irreverent in its honesty and take-no-prisoners approach, The Angel’s Dictionary: A Spirited Glossary for the Little Devil in You is an honest appraisal of words in terms of today’s sensibilities. Sol Luckman has picked up where writers like Mark Twain and Ambrose Bierce left off over a century ago, identifying new associations for words and phrases to match what they really represent today […] They say many a true word is spoken in jest, and perhaps Luckman’s humor is a well-timed wake-up call to be heeded while we still have time to ask important questions.”

Taking a page from Ambrose Bierce’s satirical masterpiece, The Devil’s Dictionary, The Angel’s Dictionary reinvigorates satire to prove that—though we might not be able to change the world—we can at least have a good laugh at it. Then again, maybe laughter can transform the world!

Interviews are available upon request. Read an online excerpt here. For a limited time access your free copy here. Contact Sol Luckman here.

Previously, Sol Luckman’s critically acclaimed spiritual adventure novel, Snooze: A Story of Awakening, won the 9th Annual 2015 National Indie Excellence Award for New Age Fiction. Luckman is also known for his bestselling nonfiction books, Conscious Healing and Potentiate Your DNA, which explore the role of consciousness and DNA in personal healing and transformation.

1. Your Body Is a Projection of Consciousness & Thought

Alex Pietrowski, Waking Times

At the cutting edge of science and technology today is artificial intelligence and robotics, which are being driven by ever-increasing computational speeds made possible by quantum computing. When the capacity of technological computation rivals the speed of our capacity to think and process information as humans, then we will reach the singularity and a superintelligence will emerge in our society, triggering runaway technological growth.

While this is coming in the very near future, we are also now learning how this very type of quantum creative power is already at play in our world via the interplay of human consciousness and the material world. In the early 1900’s, the famous double-slit experiment demonstrated that material objects can actually change their composition based on what is being held in consciousness when said objects are observed.

In other words, the world around us is being created moment by moment, and our expectations of what the world should be is what gives it form. In order to alter its form or to change course, we can use the directed focus of the mind to envision and feel something different for ourselves, and in time and through repetition, this reality will eventually take form. The feeling is the key.

This is something we do all the time. The best example of this, perhaps, is the human body, which can by some measures be considered a projection of human consciousness. We see this everywhere. For example, just look at people’s bodies and consider their health, and you’ll be able to get a fair idea of what type of thought patterns and belief systems are at work in the everyday silence of their own minds.

The best example is someone with radiant health, high energy and intense vitality. This person didn’t get to be this way by happenstance. The patterns of thought in their mind support their belief that their body can be a radiant storehouse of health. This, in turn, supports the development of habits which create such well-being. This type of person engages in clean, clear thinking about their health and body, and the result is this very type of body. They intentionally feel how they want to feel.

On the other hand, a person with an out of shape, obese, or disease-ridden body undoubtedly engages in thought patterns and beliefs about health which support such poor health. They never believe that they can be disease free or of ideal weight, and so their thoughts reinforce habits which deteriorate their health. Inside this person’s mind are chaos, confusion, fear, self-loathing and other patterns which create dis-ease.

There is more to this, though, if we consider the possibilities unfolding in the realms of quantum physics and superintelligent technology. We are beginning to get a clear idea of what the quantum field actually is and what it can do. It appears to be waiting for us to purposefully interact with it.

The quantum world is waiting for us to make a decision so that it knows how to behave. That is why quantum physicists have such difficulties in dealing with, explaining, and defining the quantum world. We are truly, in every sense of the word, masters of creation because we decide what manifests out of the field of all-possibility and into form.

The thing is, the quantum level of reality isn’t a local and insignificant aspect of creation. It is all around us, and it is the most fundamental level of creation aside from the unified field itself. The human energy field is interacting and influencing the quantum field all around us at all times and the energy of our beliefs and intentions are infused into our energy field because they are defined by the energy of our thoughts and emotions. —Brandon West

Final Thoughts

This may sound to some like a woo woo way of looking at the world, but there is immense practicality in this world view for improving your life, your health, your relationships, and your overall happiness. The takeaway here is that you must take control over your own mind, and plant thoughts that support the projection of a healthy body and life. As Dr. Joe Dispenza notes, you’ll need to decide what you want, then put your attention on creating that reality.

“Whatever it is that is your vision, you’re just going to have to be passionate enough to invest your attention and your energy into that future over and over again, till all of a sudden you start seeing feedback in your life.” —Dr. Joe Dispenza

2. New Study Shows Time on Social Media Can Make You Lonely & Depressed

Anna Hunt, Waking Times

Pretty much everyone will agree that too much time on social media will leave you feeling a little inadequate. Why? Because when you’re scanning people’s Facebook and Instagram feeds, you’re taking in the best moments of their lives at full throttle. And let’s not forget that there’s always a good dose of fictitious perfection.

Face it, people strive to make their social presence as perfect as possible, like they are living the ideal life. As a result, if you spend too much time scrolling through people’s social profiles, you may end up feeling a little depressed. You may even view your life as somewhat lacking. This is no longer just a hypothetical theory. Now, research proves it!

Research Looks at How Time on Social Media Affects Well-being

Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania found a connection between Facebook, Snapchat and Instagram social networks and well-being. Psychologist Melissa Hunt, associate director at Penn’s Psychology Department, published the study recently in the Journal of Social and Clinical Psychology. She claims that the study was more comprehensive and rigorous than past research that assessed the impact of social media.

The study included 143 participants from the University. Initially, each student completed a survey to help the research team determine their general mood disposition and assess factors that affect well-being, such as level of anxiety and loneliness. In addition, the researchers determined the average social media consumed by each participant.

During the experiment, participants were split into two groups. One was a control group, where users maintained their typical social media consumption. The second group limited their time on Facebook, Snapchat and Instagram to only 10 minutes per day. Hunt’s team accomplished their data collection by tracking usage automatically via iPhones.

The experiment lasted three weeks. Each week, participants shared iPhone data that clearly tallied usage time. Hunt and team also assessed seven measures of well-being. These included anxiety, loneliness, the fear of missing out and depression.

Hunt outlines the main findings:

Using less social media than you normally would leads to significant decreases in both depression and loneliness. These effects are particularly pronounced for folks who were more depressed when they came into the study.

Social Media Leads to Enormous Social Comparison

Does limiting screen time on social media mean you’ll lead a happier life? Won’t you feel left out if you don’t know what’s going on in other people’s lives? Here is Hunt’s assessment:

Some of the existing literature on social media suggests there’s an enormous amount of social comparison that happens. When you look at other people’s lives, particularly on Instagram, it’s easy to conclude that everyone else’s life is cooler or better than yours.

It’s important to note that Hunt’s study is limited to 18-22-year-olds. Therefore, we can’t necessarily conclude that all age groups would react the same way to less time on social media sites. That said, how many times have you compared yourself to others when looking at their Facebook or Instagram feed?

Regardless of age, spending time looking at someone’s picture-perfect life eats away at your time of actually doing something that will make your life richer.

Furthermore, if you find yourself getting wrapped up in the social presence of a friend or family member, perhaps it’s time to give that person a call and set aside some time to see them and catch up. When you actually talk to your friends, you’re likely to learn life isn’t perfect. You learn that they use a really fun photo filter to take out blemishes and dark eye circles. You learn about their troubles—because everyone has them but they don’t share that stuff on their feed. And consequently, you both feel more content because you’ve spent time with someone, truly connecting.

3. Mental Disorders Do Not Exist

Jon Rappoport

To say that a person should have a right to consider himself mentally ill and to take a drug is one thing. This is an argument from the principle of individual freedom.

To say that such a person knows what he is doing by some objective standard is quite another thing.

Objectively speaking, mental illnesses and disorders do not exist.

Officially, all mental disorders are said to be chemical imbalances in the brain. Not just any imbalances, but specific ones. But, this is assertion is unproven. There is no evidence for it.

For example, for any of the 297 so-called mental disorders listed in the official publication of the American Psychiatric Association, there are no defining physical tests. No blood tests, no urine tests, no saliva tests, no laboratory tests of any kind.

This is a fact.

Since it is a fact, it is odd that all psychiatrists are medical doctors. What are they doing that is medical?

Well, they are prescribing drugs. Yes. But I could prescribe drugs if I had a license to do so and a prescription pad.

The profession of psychiatry asserts that these drugs erase or alleviate “the brain chemical imbalances” that form the basis for all mental disorders. Yet the brain-imbalance hypothesis is unproven. It may “make sense” to some people, but that doesn’t constitute evidence.

People, of course, are free to believe the brain-chemical-imbalance hypothesis is true. Belief doesn’t make it true.

People are also free to believe the hypothesis that strange behavior emanates from the Devil or a Karmic curse.

A person says, “I was diagnosed with clinical depression and I took Prozac, and ever since then I’ve felt much happier.”

Yes. Fine. I have no interest in challenging that statement. I merely point out that there are people who have felt depressed and took a crystal they claimed was sacred, rubbed it on their heads, and felt better from then on.

There are people who have joined a church and prayed and felt better.

Why is the Prozac experience more compelling than crystals or prayer?

I’m not talking about what a person says makes him feel better. I’m talking about what psychiatrists claim is science. And when you scratch the surface of that, you come up with: no compelling evidence.

Yet, in courts and in doctors’ offices and at academic conferences and in the pages of professional journals and in political gulags, the science of discrete and separate and definable mental disorders is treated as settled, confirmed, verified, certain. That is a baldfaced lie.

All 297 official mental disorders, listed in the (DSM) publication of the American Psychiatric Association, are defined and approved by committees of psychiatrists. Whether it is schizophrenia or autism or ADHD or clinical depression or bipolar disease, the definitions consist wholly of described behaviors. That’s all.

Psychiatrists will tell you these symptomatic behaviors are signs of underlying chemical imbalances or genetic aberrations, but again, they have no tests to back up this assertion. Therefore, all they left with are the behaviors and their own menu-like collections of those behaviors.

Yes, people suffer in life, and they experience confusion and doubt. They have problems. They have trouble with relationships. They feel sad. They feel all sorts of things. They feel pain. They don’t know how to move ahead with plans. They sometimes feel their lives are at an impasse. Yes.

This is far different from claiming they have a specific and detectable chemical imbalance which can be tested for.

“Well,” many psychiatrists say, “the hypothesis of chemical balance is confirmed if the drugs work, because the drugs are, in fact, based on the idea that chemical imbalances underlie mental disorders.”

Let’s examine that approach. Take, for example, Ritalin.

The 1994 Textbook of Psychiatry, published by the American Psychiatric Press, contains this review (Popper and Steingard): “Stimulants [such as Ritalin] do not produce lasting improvements in aggressivity, conduct disorder, criminality, education achievement, job functioning, marital relationships, or long-term adjustment.”

Not a ringing endorsement.

How about, say, the antidepressants prescribed to children?

A shocking review-study published in The Journal of Nervous and Mental Diseases (1996, v.184, no.2), written by Rhoda L. Fisher and Seymour Fisher, called “Antidepressants for Children,” concludes: “Despite unanimous literature of double-blind studies indicating that antidepressants are no more effective than placebos in treating depression in children and adolescents, such medications continue to be in wide use.”

Here is a link to the official psychiatric definition of autism disorder. It’s worth reading:


Notice that all the criteria for a diagnosis are behavioral. There is no mention of laboratory tests or test results. There is no definitive mention of chemical imbalance or genetic factors.

Despite public-relations statements issued by doctors and researchers, they have no laboratory findings to establish or confirm a diagnosis.

But, people say, this makes no sense, because children do, in fact, withdraw from the world, stop speaking, throw sudden tantrums. Common sense seems to dictate that these behaviors stem from serious neurological problems.

Let’s briefly examine that. What could cause the behaviors listed in the official definition of autism disorder:

* a vaccine injury;
* a head injury in an accident;
* an ingestion of a neurological poison;
* an environmental chemical;
* a severe nutritional deficit;
* perhaps the emotional devastation accompanying the death of a parent …

However, in that case, why bother to call it “autism?” Why not just say vaccine injury or head injury? The answer should be clear: By establishing a label like autism, medical drugs can be sold. Studies can be funded. An industry can be created.

In fact, when it comes to the US government’s vaccine injury compensation program for parents whose children have suffered vaccine injury, the government can engage in a con game. The government can say, “In order to establish a cause for autism, we must find a single underlying factor that applies to all cases of autism. Since we know that some children who are diagnosed with autism have not received vaccines, or have not received vaccines containing a neurological poison (mercury), we do not compensate parents whose children are vaccine-injured on the basis that they have autism.”

But, of course, what is called autism (merely a label) is not one condition caused by one factor. It is a loose collection of behaviors that are caused by various traumas.

The official mental disorder called autism disorder does not exist.

People find such statements very unsettling. They argue, “My child’s life was stolen away from him. He must have autism.”

This proves that a label provides some measure of relief for the parents. It doesn’t prove that the label actually means something. In fact, the label can be a diversion from knowledge that would actually help the child. Suppose, for example, that after receiving the DPT vaccine, the child went into a screaming fit and then withdrew from the world. Calling that autism tends to put the parents and the child in the medical system, where there is no effective treatment. Outside that system, there might be some hope with vaccine detox or, say, hyperbaric oxygen treatments.

What is stated here about autism applies to all 297 official mental disorders. They are labels. There is no reason to suppose that, for each label, there is a single cause. There is no reason to suppose that the labels name actual conditions. Research that attempts to find a single cause for a label stands no better chance of succeeding than research designed to prove a man on the moon is selling land leases to citizens of Fiji.

Again, people have every right to believe they have been helped by a psychiatric diagnosis and a prescribed drug. But they also have the right to reject that paradigm and seek knowledge and help elsewhere. The whole thrust of official psychiatry and its allies is to monopolize their self-appointed territory and use all necessary means to eliminate the competition. This approach has nothing to do with science. It has everything to do with profit and fascist control.

“But my cousin was depressed. He took Zoloft and felt much better.”

Read this article again. It neither denigrates your cousin nor makes your cousin’s experience the basis of actual far-reaching science. This article is about science.

4. Stress & Why I Don't Do Salivary Cortisol Tests Anymore

Kelly Brogan, MD, KellyBroganMd.com

Stress: Is it real or imagined?

Stress. It has become our constant companion. We know when we feel it and when we don’t feel it, we actually may even go looking for it. Have you ever had a moment of peace and quiet, only to watch your mind pounce into action in a desperate effort to figure out what you “should” be doing?

America is a culture predicated on an endless marathon toward the promised land of ease. We goad our populace along with fear of illness and death, fear of pain, fear of suffering, fear of failure. Ten minutes of television is enough to convince you that deadly enemies are lurking around every corner. We are ever layering quick fix upon quick fix, self-medicating, and digging ourselves deeper and deeper into dark holes. Then we wonder why we feel the need to scream, freak out, and wave the white flag.

This is why stress is such an important topic—it is biological, psychological, and spiritual. But ultimately, it is a reflection of misalignment with our highest expression. We are now learning that stress can travel from your mind to your brain to your gut1 AND from your gut to your brain to your mind!2 The language that it uses to communicate this message appears to be inflammation. We hear this communication as a feeling of tension, agitation, exasperation. A sense that we are being pulled beyond our capacity.

Modern science, and specifically the science of psychoneuroimmunology, has taken us on a tour of what stress looks like in the body. And while stress is no longer just in your mind, it can, in fact, be controlled by your mind, giving us a powerful way to affect our immune systems through our perception.3

Stress: If you believe in it, it’s real

We have been told there is good stress and bad stress. That good stress, or eustress, helps us grow, and that bad stress makes us sick. I would say that the perception of stress is the determining factor between whether we are sending our body a signal of danger or safety.

In a recent review by Ray et al,4 the authors refer to this definition:

More modern concepts view stress as a consciously or unconsciously sensed threat to homeostasis, in which the response has a degree of specificity, depending among other things, on the particular challenge to homeostasis, the organism’s perception of the stressor and the perceived ability to cope with it.

I often illustrate the role of perception to my patients by describing the following scenario:

Let’s say you are walking down a dark alley way at night, alone. You hear footsteps rapidly approaching from behind. What’s going to happen? Your mouth will go dry, your heart will start pounding, your breath will quicken, and you may have intrusive images of catastrophic possibilities.

If, then, you hear your friend’s voice coming from those footsteps, that entire cascade is going to reverse and you may even start laughing to release all of that tension.

The only thing that changed, of course, was your perception that there was danger. Your mind commandeered your body.

Can stress perception make you sick?

McEwen5 has written about the principle role of perception in the stress response that leads to bodily expression of illness. He refers to the burden on your bodymind as allostatic load, with perception of stress playing a major part in the development of physiologic response and illness.

Relatedly, Cohen et al report that the response to this simple question was the most meaningful determinant of clinical experience of the common cold: “In general, how would you rate your health?” After being inoculated with cold viruses, participants in Cohen’s study demonstrated that negative health perception led to the experience of common cold symptoms regardless of whether the immune system was reacting. In other words, if someone had a positive health perception, got exposed, and had antibody confirmation of immune response, they did not manifest clinical symptoms of the cold (i.e., get sick). Now, it’s possible that positive and negative perceptions result from a sensed experience of an inflammatory state that would lead to more frequent infections, but this relationship between thoughts, emotions, and the immune system is tridirectional. Each arm as significant as the other.

Do we need to measure stress?

When I first started out in functional medicine, I had transferred my mechanistic appreciation of the body to a greener approach. I still worked, as a clinician, from the perspective that biochemistry was reducible to cycles and pathways, except that now I was interested in the vitamins, amino acids, and minerals that made them “work.” Over time, and my own evolution, I began to appreciate that this quantification-focused healing was distracting both me and my patients from the larger shifts in consciousness that needed to happen. And from the personalization of the journey.

I began to understand the role of a test for stress response—the salivary cortisol test—in the ritual of healing and the potential placebo effect of seeing your own stress mapped out on paper, inspiring you to commit to bettering that line.

A deeper skepticism around the true meaning of measured salivary cortisol arose when I learned more about epigenomics and the role of receptor function in genetic expression. When we measure a hormone in blood, saliva, or urine, we can certainly get a bird’s eye view of whether there is something dramatically amiss, but we cannot be sure about how that compares to your optimal range, and what that hormone is doing on a cellular level, and in its interactions with the greater systems within your body.

A paper entitled “Mind-body Therapies and Control of Inflammatory Biology: A Descriptive Review”6 speaks to this complexity.

Bower et al reviewed 26 randomized controlled trials of “mind-body therapies” including Tai Chi, yoga, and meditation. What they found, in a nutshell, is that despite reports of improvement in stress levels, subjectively, study subjects showed mixed effects of inflammatory markers including CRP and IL-6 that have been correlated with stress and depression. They did find, however, that genomic markers revealed a more nuanced effect with a decrease in expression of inflammation-related genes and reduced signaling through the pro-inflammatory transcription factor NF-kB.

They suspect that these modalities exert their effect through a top-down self-regulatory process involving the autonomic nervous system, the endocrine system, and behavioral conditioning. It could also be, of course, that these ancient technologies serve to simultaneously use the body as its own healing instrument and connect consciousness to a place of expanded receptivity.

This is why I found it amusing that the paper ultimately speaks to identifying the “active ingredient” of these practices, seeking to reduce these complex tools into pharmacologic-like interventions.

Healing your stress response

While I believe in the symphony of lifestyle changes including detox, nutrition, and targeted supplementation, I believe a daily commitment to meditation to be the most powerful tool in the stress response arsenal. An intense type A, I destressed my human experience when I began meditating, pre-dawn in a dark moment of desperation after my mentor’s sudden death. I haven’t missed a day since because my perception of adversity, challenges, and conflict changed within two months of starting. I don’t need genomic testing to confirm what I already know—that I have greater access to my life force energy, every day, thanks to meditation.

This is why I champion the do-it-yourself approach to medicine—spend one month working with lifestyle interventions before you run to a consultation with a fancy doctor.

Try it and you’ll see, no tests necessary. Here’s one to get you started: it’s called Meditation for Negative Mind and it has the capacity to flip the switch on your inner alarm system dissolving all of the walls that were keeping you captive.

5. Graham Hancock Recently Drank Ayahuasca & Returned with This Important Message for Humanity

Vic Bishop, Waking Times

Such chaotic and divisive times these are. Corruption, stress and strife are chipping away at our happiness, clouding our purpose, and keeping us from reconnecting to what it means to be part of the human family.

But there is a messenger of truth in this world, found in the Amazonian shamanic plant medicine ayahuasca. It has a unique way of challenging those who have the courage to look deep within and attempt reconcile the real you with the person whom you pretend to be. In this is the power to transform into your greatest self, and when the individual awakens and transforms, then we can have hope for the world.

Author and researcher Graham Hancock has been a leader in the global movement to expand consciousness, and after taking a three-year break from drinking ayahuasca due to unrelated health concerns, he recently returned to ceremony, leaving us with a hopeful note about the condition of the human race on planet earth.

Here he reflects on the incredible transformative power of ayahuasca, pointing out that it has the profound capacity to remind us of who we really are.

A Message to Humanity

From Graham Hancock’s blog, December 1st, 2018 [emphasis added]:

I have witnessed the almost miraculous effects that Ayahuasca has had on many members of our group during this week. There have been such profound realisations, such life-changing and life-affirming experiences, such beauty, such joy and such love. It is as though my closest family has suddenly expanded to encompass this wonderful new soul family that I have been integrated with through the enchantment of the brew and the magic of the ceremonies. There are people here from many different walks of life and from many different nations and ethnicities and what we have all found is the common ground that unites us.

Would it could be so, always, for the entire human family! There is so much division in the world today, so much hatred, so much fear, so much suspicion and so much greed that our species seems close to tearing itself apart and rendering the Earth uninhabitable in the process.

What fools we are to allow such a state of affairs to persist, and to allow politicians and religious mis-leaders—for their own short-term gain—to divide us from one another in order to rule us.

Brothers and sisters, wherever we are, no matter on which land or under which political or religious system chance brought us to be born, the time has come to awaken from this nightmare of our own making and remember the truth about ourselves—that we are all members of one family, no matter how widely scattered, that none of us have the slightest justification to claim superiority over any other, and that we all share the same hopes, fears, courage, fragility and capacity for love.

United we stand. It is just plain madness to continue to allow ourselves to be divided and defined by the artificial barriers of nation, race or creed. We must remember our common humanity, remember that we are one family, and put that realisation first before all other considerations if our species is to survive the challenges of the coming years and return once again to being good stewards of this precious garden of a planet.
