  5. Spinning is not a new thing, there are many parts of the world where various religions/sects practice spinning. One of the most well known is the muslim sect the Whirling Dervishes Known to the west as Whirling Dervishes, the members of the Mevlevi Order (named for their founder Mevlana) from Konya lived in what we might call coisters or monasteries - what to them was a Mevlevihane. The one at Galata in Istanbul is a product of late Ottoman architecture, and quite elaborate in having a tomb, a large chamber for the ceremony of the whirling dance (Sema), a fountain from which water was charitably distributed to the public, a time keeper's room, cells for the dervishes, separate quarters for the Master, a section for women, a chamber of silence, a large ornate fountain for ablutions, and a laundry room. Yes they allowed women in the same Monastery as men, something you don't see very often. They where known as the gentle ones and their rituals included spinning (whirling) to achiev ecstasy and spiritual enlightenment The rituals of the Rumi's followers (Whirling Dervishes) are among the enduring as well as the most exquisite ceremonies of spirituality. The ritual whirling of the dervishes is an act of love and a drama of faith. It possesses a highly structured form within which the gentle turns become increasingly dynamic as the individual dervishes strive to achieve a state of trance. The music that accompanies the whirling from beginning to end ranges from somber to rhapsodical; its effect is intended to be mesmerizing. Chanting of poetry, rhythmic rotation, and incessant music create a synthesis which, according to the faithful, induces a feeling of soaring, of ecstasy, of mystical flight.

  7. Learn the Anti-Thought-Form Hack Technique to Escape from the Matrix Some interesting thoughts from Arno Pienaar Learn the "Anti Thought-Form Hack Technique" and free the mind once and for all. How aware are you of these beings each stealing the limelight from awareness? We all desires stillness and control within our minds, and prefer our inner domains to be free from disruptive thoughts that cause us to react. Reacting in this context means thinking more thoughts resulting from one that was primarily implanted by the Luciferian Archons that know you better than you know yourself! (The ego) These entities live by thought alone and use it to manipulate this reality by implanting thoughts into all of humanity by suggestion. We direly need to be free from all thought-forms. A thought-form is a thought that has been energized to the point of gaining its own life and dominion within the psyche of the captive’s mind. It literally is a created entity that lives within a person that wants its own way. A thought-form can be compared to a stuck tape — its patterns and reasoning are repetitious and serve to keep you in frozen malfunction, or an unconscious existence. You become like a computer trying to function with a virus; everything is a struggle and your frequency is slower than it should be. Thought-forms become ingrained into your mind and rule your life while you are unconscious. Many of us have become slaves to the consequences of being a victim to the Luciferian egregore group of thinking entities, that gain more access to our minds through matrix-based information constructs, such as words, numbers, shapes, colours and sounds. The sad fact is that the more thought-based illusory knowledge and information you have uploaded, that has arisen out of this 3-dimensional experience, the easier it is for you to become a victim from the very data that you have absorbed. Once you start considering this holographic realm to be real and science or religion guiding beacons to the truth, then you become imprisoned into the Matrix. The longer you live by the thought-based laws, the harder it becomes to regain your conscious mind from within the holographic reality. Remember that words originate from thoughts, and that thoughts create light. Thoughts are a frequency because they have an energetic vibration; vibration is energy and energy glows as light. Although this light cannot be perceived with our limited sight, it is real and it is what creates this light-based reality that conjures matter. We learn the alphabet and the number system in school so that we may curse ourselves and render ourselves spellbound by all those letters and numbers that quantify our eternal, omnipresent nature. We all have thought-forms uploaded into our consciousness, otherwise we could not manifest in this reality. At the very least, you believe you are real. That thought will, by all means, keep you around on the face of the Earth. Gravity is a thought-form, energy is a thought-form, and even time is a thought-form. None of these written thought-based laws are real, but they are made very real by us, by the beliefs we absorb from the mainframe thinking construct that permeates its frequencies through our minds, which are programmed to receive from this false light, which is the great deceiver. Everything of the light is broadcasted from all knowledge-based institutions that insist reality is only what we are able to perceive with the five (very limited!) senses. The senses are open to though-form suggestions All the senses are, are receivers that are tuned to tune into the third dimensional matrix experience. They only serve to experience the illusion. The belief that they, alone, experience reality creates the limited world of a physical third dimensional existence. Once you believe that all the input you receive through them is real, then you subconsciously give yourself away to this light-show going on around you. Believing this is all there is to it, you use this light-show every time you have a chance for addictive pleasure that your senses find gratifying (not you!), and if you are anyhow religious, you then feel guilty, for most of the pleasures are considered to be sins. And guilt manifests a whole lot of remorse, regrets and fear. If a human being experiences fear in any form, then it is like a bleeding seal in shark infested waters. Fear opens you wide open to the destructive thoughts that lead to all sorts of devastating effects. Those that experience the most fear, exhibit the highest degree of dysfunction in their realities. The further you sink into fear manifesting from guilt, the deeper you sink into the vortex of negative imagery and destructive thought patterns, which you cannot yield in any way. You may term this “demonic possession” if you like. Possession is much more common than most people believe. Most people are indeed possessed today by all sorts of thought-entities living inside them. Understand that thought gave birth to your demonic opponents. "I think, therefore I am" — René Descartes Descartes was half right, but, it is not you and never was you that thinks, although if you understand that the word “I” actually insinuates EYE, the all seeing eye, representing God/Thoth (i.e. Thought), which conjures up reality, then Descartes was right on cue! The deeper the consciousness resides in duality, the more thoughts may be implanted to freak out about and react to, triggering you into bouts of unconscious feeding to the illusion, that is mostly conjured by negative streaming. That’s why religions are all fear and duality based. What a clever plan by the secret societies, such as the Freemasons, to erect a platform and a foundation for the reality construct of this world! It is very important to remove yourself out of duality so that you may not feed two different sides of the same illusion with thoughts. Once duality is un-programmed, you have much more space available to you, where before you had conflicting thoughts between good and bad. Life and death is also duality based. The two conjured notions are only made real by the existence of each other, and if you remove one, then the whole paradigm seizes to be. The unnecessary fear of the bad one (i.e. death) would have never originated. The ancients were never afraid of death; they knew that dying here meant “waking up” somewhere else. What if there was only life? What if there was only death? It’s all thought-based deceit, mean to confuse us. The real you is eternal and now you are only in a third-dimensional illusion that has thought itself into something, which you believe to be real. It is time to come out of the box and play!

  12. The Crashing Matrix and Last Ditch Trans-Everything Agenda Another interesting article by Zen Gardner The out-dated matrix programming by the engineers of deceit can’t keep up. The vibrational changes are exceeding their capabilities. The imitators of creation can’t maintain a current operating system any longer in the face of this massive Universal shift we’re undergoing. And it’s driving them nuts. Just look at the desperation we’re witnessing. Crude military and police state manoeuvres are only one aspect, of course working in concert with dastardly economic manipulations and an outlandish propaganda barrage. The biggest clue is seeing the previously incremental and now hyperbolic use of technocratic programs from mass surveillance and data gathering to the advent of cyber warfare and artificial intelligence, while crazed maniacs at CERN try to crack into other dimensions. The magnitude and desperation of their insane agenda has become completely transparent to just about anyone. This last techno-based stage is a draconian move to try to delete our innate humanity before our awakening reaches critical mass. They’ve openly admitted this. Hence their attempt to transmute everything from genes and humans to automated monsters and geoengineering. Agreed, when it comes to realizing what’s happening there are the entranced apathetic who swallow anything, but we’re witnessing what’s bound to lead to a total meltdown of their dark designs before our very eyes. If you can’t see it, look again. The Proof is in the Dot Connected Pudding First of all you’re in the wrong mind-set if you’re looking only for data or left brained evidence that they are in their death throes, although it’s out there for those who can see. When we come to understand the vibrational workings of our holographic reality everything takes on new dimensions and opens us up to understanding these more esoteric notions. Those with awakened hearts can feel this. I say hearts because much of what we need to grasp or at least track is intuitive and somewhat metaphysical. Taking all of the information and dot connecting and personal spiritual experience together paints very clear pictures, we just need to trust what we’re seeing and learning. When we explore these realities we’re sensing, we start to notice how they’re manifesting. Forbidding free speech, shooting civilians with no cause, obviously propagandized news, wars with no possible end, deliberate poisoning, starvation and dumbing down of populations are all completely transparent. Add these next levels of technetronic and genetic morphing’s and the picture is as plain as day. They’re as obvious as the desperate, flailing, and dying aberrant parasitical species that they are. It’s kind of a conscious or spiritual symbiosis we’re experiencing as our awakening dissolves their machinations. They all work together. But ignoring the spiritual and metaphysical as “evidence” in conjunction with such obvious manifestations is why this world has devolved into its current state. Previous enlightened civilizations and earth connected tribes took this type of understanding to heart. Our current imposed paradigm does nothing of the sort. Of course, because it only exposes their perfidy. They Can’t Control the Shift Their programs can’t keep up with the changes the cosmos is bringing to our planet and race. The perfect metaphor. While they’ve literally gotten away with murder for millennia and are working furiously to enforce their “programs” at so many levels, the time’s up. We have news for you boys, you’ve been superseded, or should I say “super seeded”. The new upgraded paradigm is taking over one awakened light infused body at a time. It’s just a matter of time before your whole wicked system crashes. The shift is moving through their lower level grip and on into massive human empowerment and transcending beyond the net they’ve laid for humanity. It’s got to be frustrating the hell out of these creeps. Imagine, the very thing you’re trying to encase in every way possible keeps morphing before your eyes and slipping through the grate. They can throw up matrix program after program but their perceived petri dish subjects just keep finding ways to survive and grow beyond their control or even imagination. What irony the Universe has. But again, this reality is in the eye of the beholder. Perhaps it’s those who grasp this that transcend. Something to think about. Hence the Trans humanist Agenda – Things They Think They Can Control Humanity is getting out of hand, in their eyes. All the while we’re being empowered not only by our own awakening and resultant commitment to truth, but also by a fundamental vibrational shift we’re undergoing. No saviour, no galactic battle stars. It’s us, and an organic consciousness evolution at the deepest level with a living, expanding and all enveloping Universe. We’re awakening with Creation Itself. Anyone who’s woken up to almost any degree understands everything is interconnected. Even “modern” physics is arriving at this reality, all while mainstream thinking ignores the profound ramifications of such a liberating concept. That we’re all interconnected not just as a race, but with the earth and the cosmos in such a fundamental way is a game changer. While this has been known for eons and is now finally being identified, our current control model cannot even begin to acknowledge this fact. To these oligarchs and self-appointed maniacal masterminds, no matter what powers they’re summoning, that truth is something apparently well beyond their debased comprehension. It’s out of their league. Sure, they have their satanic rituals and tap into other dimensional powers and entities, but it’s child’s play compared to the True picture of our all Powerful Creative Universe. That they live in rebellion against this Force is a known reality for millennia, and even alluded to by spiritual traditions and native shamanic teachings alike for ages. Bringing this understanding “down to earth” is another story. This is why genetic engineering and the Trans humanism agenda are so important to them. This attempt to fundamentally change human nature and the merging of man with machine has been in the works for a long time. Clipping the link with our humanity by short circuiting the human creation is an obvious next step for these would-be controllers. Agreed, they’ve made it a fad and carefully groomed acceptance of such a trend, but it’s going to fritz and die in the junkyard of temporal existence. It can’t stand, never mind last, in such a creative force field. Time will bear this out, as has happened to previous off-course civilizations. The Time the Warrior Arrives it’s up to us. We have everything going for us but our will and actions need to be aligned with this transition. We can ignore it or respond. The sanctity of our free will cannot be violated. Either we fully awaken and get paddling and ride the wave or it crashes on us and perhaps dissipates on the shores of time for lack of recognition or response. And the whole cycle may need to be repeated. Not a nice destiny. I don’t know. I know I’m not coming back. I’m pretty sure I’m done with this insanity while doing my damnedest to change things this time around. If enough of us did it won’t get repeated, but time will tell. Not many seem to be willing to respond, even though their lives and their children and grandchildren’s lives are at stake as well as the future of humanity. Talk about self-imposed defeat and debilitation. But people are waking up. Either way, the matrix will collapse over time. We have an opportunity to make it this round. Let’s take it. The true civilization of love, peace, harmony and abundance awaits manifesting. Is it time? I think so. It is for me. How about you? http://tinyurl.com/nvr8dk7

  14. An interesting article by Greg Calise The Final Trick of the Matrix Control System When you pull back the curtain on all of the illusions, what you find is quite preposterous. It is so absurd, so far removed from what we perceive as reality, that not many people would ever believe it. It is beyond science fiction. “The truth is paradoxical to the extent of being exactly contrary to the usual perception.” – Georges Bataille Consider what actually lies behind that curtain? Behind the facades we perceive, are truths that are contrary to the perceived realities. It is not what we think it is. We have been trapped, enslaved for thousands of years, without us even realizing it. We are in a labyrinth of illusions, with gate keepers at every step. Sometime, long ago in prehistory, inter-dimensional demiurges came to our Earth to plunder her. They enslaved humanity and proclaimed themselves as almighty god, the creator. The Gnostics called them the archons. They are the predators, who keep us as their herd, just as we keep farm animals. We are their food. We have been in their grip for thousands of years. The very gods that we pray to for hope and salvation are the very culprits that prey on us. They are our keepers, and they enslave us, yet we are convinced that they are our creator and saviour. Isn’t that ironic? Yes, it all seems quite preposterous. Not at all what it seems. All of this has been recorded in ancient legends, writings, histories and religious and cultural records. It’s not just some wild story conjured up by some person with a creative imagination. Reality really is stranger than science fiction. I can understand why not too many people even want to know the reality. David Icke has spoken extensively on this, as well as Michael Tsarion and many others. I write a lot about the matrix and waking up from it. As the misty veils of illusion are lifted, the reality becomes more visible. But the matrix is far reaching. Beyond the earthly matrix is the cosmic matrix, which is quite vast from our perspective. There are layers, or dimensions of the cosmic matrix, as it extends through the eight dimensions of the cosmos Within the cosmic matrix are many false light constructs, each created by a demiurge, an impostor god. Each false light construct can extend through eight dimensions, and also they are vast in size, each one of them could seem as large as a universe, and yet they are only a tiny fraction of the entire universe. But when you are inside them, they seem all compassing. Just another illusory trick. Many of these false light realms extend upon our planet, through the programmed minds of people. For example, Jehovah is an impostor god that has created his own matrix of false light. His realm stretches throughout all of the cosmic dimensions and is vast in scope. It appears on our planet through the minds of the followers of Jehovah, as they are programmed to believe in his doctrine, they then perceive a world tinted by those beliefs. There are many religions and new age doctrines on this planet, so we have many false light realms existing here simultaneously, each generated through the programmed minds of their followers. You can have a room full of Hindus, Buddhists, Moslems, Christians, Jews, etc. and each of those false light realms exists within the same room, each within the programmed minds of the followers. Each person, through his programmed mind, perceives reality through the filters of his beliefs, and therefor places an overlay of illusions of the false light matrix over the truth. Each of these false light realms has many levels of their heavens. In the Puranas, there are many descriptions of the realms of the Hindu gods and goddesses. There are also descriptions of the seven layers of the realms of the demons. These are the heavens. From what I have gathered, there seems to be many demiurges, each with their own false light realm, and they are all under one umbrella. George Kavassilas describes from his journeys, that they are all under Jehovah. What I have described so far is the stage on which a very heinous crime is perpetrated upon humanity. You see, it’s not enough for them to simply enslave us and feed off of us in this life. We are trapped in their web. It is called the wheel of Samsara. In Reincarnation Is Enslavement, I explained how the souls are recycled into new bodies in the matrix. “So the next question is: What happens when we die? When we die, we enter the cosmic matrix, another false light construct which we call heaven. Our souls are trapped within this prison of the gods. After some time in the false heavens, we return again in the same cycle. This is called the wheel of samsara, the cycle of birth and death.” What the religions and new age call heaven, are all false light constructs, where the souls are given a reprise from the pain and suffering inflicted upon them in their earthly incarnations; pain inflicted by the very god they pray to. Yet, even in “heaven” the souls are still being fed upon. Then they are recycled into another body in the matrix, with a short duration of life; far too short to be able to find their way out of the Labyrinth. There are gatekeepers everywhere. This is the plight of humanity. This little video gives a glimpse of the reality one faces at death. This is the final grand trick. No matter what you do or believe here in your earthly body, at the time of death, we are yet tricked again. We are tricked to enter into the heavens to be recycled. When one first leaves his mortal coil, he is quite disoriented. He may encounter angels or loved ones who will urge the newly departed soul to follow them. Or he may encounter a tunnel that leads to a light. He is urged to ascend the tunnel, where he is greeted by angels, guides, loved ones etc. The newly departed soul believes he is in a true heaven. But all of these angels, loved ones etc. are not actually who they are pretending to be. Val Valerian is a pseudonym of an ex CIA operative that wrote books about the matrix a decade before the movie. He writes: “It is they [Grey aliens] who await in the light when a human being dies. The human being is then recycled into another body and the process begins all over again… Hence the Light and Tunnel at death trap. Scanning someone they wish to recycle as they near death, the aliens discover who the person was close to has died. They project the person(s) image in the white light tunnel and the image waves you in deeper. If you CHOOSE to follow you can be trapped and sent to another incarnation of their choice… these entities view Earth as a big farm.” — Val Valerian, Matrix II & Matrix V In Matrix V, Valerian writes: “They want to recycle low to lower mid-level spirits into another breeding productive incarnation. Hence the Light and Tunnel at death trap. Scanning someone they wish to recycle as they near death, the aliens discover who the person was close to has died. “They project the person(s) image in the white light tunnel and the image waves you in deeper. If you CHOOSE to follow you can be trapped and sent to another incarnation of their choice. “This shows the Empire does have an understanding of the spirit, but it attempts to short this out. The Light and Tunnel trap is a relatively new device, but one that will fail and they now know this. ‘Go into the Light’ say those who have had near death experiences. They are the salespersons chosen to advertise this alien venture. NEVER enter that light. Go up, left, back, right or anywhere but there. The mass media exposure of the Light and Tunnel trap (seen in the film ‘Ghost’, where the hero willingly enters the glittering trap) is to try to get people to buy the destination.” I agree with what he has described. We are recycled over and over until we break free. The light and the tunnel at the time of death are traps. The final nasty trick. There are so many books being written about the death experience, NDE, people communicating from heaven, going toward the light, etc. They all speak about going towards the light as the doorway to heaven. It’s only a larger cage with more toys. Again, these books are all there to lead you astray, just like the waiter Andrea, in Monte Python’s The Meaning of Life. What they describe is the repose between bodies, where little do they realize, they are still being fed upon. It’s the energies of the captured souls in heaven that help create the heavenly false light construct. The head honcho god also feeds off of the captured souls to satisfy his addictions. Yikes! Holy Shit! This really is a nasty trick. Just about everyone assumes you are supposed to go through the tunnel to the light at the time of death. Everyone assumes that the loved ones and angels meeting us are genuine. Everyone assumes that at the time of death, god would claim us back to his abode... well, he does. It’s just not the god that you were expecting. Everyone assumes that after death, they are free of bondage. I’m happy to put a hole in that grand illusion. Welcome to the cosmic matrix. The rabbit hole just keeps getting deeper. For rest of article:- http://tinyurl.com/nrak8ho
  15. 8 Ideas to Help You Unplug From the “Matrix” Below are some strategies for those wishing to live more rewarding, connected, and sustainable lives. 1. Eat Healthy Organic Foods Consider incorporating more plant-based whole foods into your diet and eliminating processed packaged foods. Eating a healthy whole food diet facilitates the cleansing of the body of unwanted toxins, and can contribute to greater clarity of mind and increased physical and mental health, as well as reducing your chances of developing degenerative diseases later in life. Living with clarity is the first step to realizing your true potential and freeing yourself from the system. This also makes you less (or non) reliant on the industrialized food system, pharmaceutical grade drugs and the conventional medical system. 2. Downsize Your Life As housing affordability deteriorates and economies continue to contract, more and more people are seeking alternative ways of living. With most Western nations spending one-third to more than half of their income on housing (mortgage repayments), living small offers greater freedom to the alternative of being tied to a mortgage for decades. There are many options for simple living today with choices including a combination of micro-apartments, tiny houses, yurts, container homes, shipping containers, and customised small homes, all offering affordable and sustainable housing. Prefabricated tiny homes can cost the same price as a new car, ranging from $20,000 to $50,000. If you want to build your own tiny home this can be even more cost effective. See: Living Big in a Tiny House 3. Get In Touch With Nature Over recent years, urbanization has increased, to the point where more people live in high density urban environments than at any time in history. This has alienated many from the natural world. Connection to the land and natural environment has been replaced by freeways, cities, and concrete landscapes, which bring little solace and opportunity for reflection for individuals. Inner peace and happiness can be hard to find in a world of constant diversion and distraction. M. Sanjayan, Ph.D., lead scientist for “The Nature Conservancy,” outlines how humans are integrally connected with nature: “For 5 million years, humans depended on nature for just about everything, including food, shelter, and the regulation of sleep cycles. It is only in the last fifty years people have become less connected to nature with much of the global population living in large urban centres.” Studies have shown that people need some connection with nature. Getting out of artificial environments helps with overall health and well-being, supporting a stronger immune system as well as stimulating creativity. 4. Become involved with or Move to an Eco village The Eco village movement offers a model which requires a paradigm shift from the take, make, waste mentality pervasive throughout our Western culture and economy. The Eco village movement aims to foster local production and long-term sustainability by maintaining economically and ecologically sustainable communities. The movement tries to integrate ecological, economic, social, and cultural dimensions of sustainability in order to regenerate social and natural environments. Eco villages range in size from small villages of fifty to a couple of thousand people. Designed to be self-governing, Eco villages try to create employment and a greater sense of community. Many incorporate and offer services such as libraries, forests, gardens and orchards. Energy supplies and community based entertainment in the form of markets and festivals are also features of Eco villages. See: http://gen.ecovillage.org/ 5. Try WWOOFING WWOOFing is an acronym for “World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms” or “Willing Workers on Organic Farms.” It is a network of national organizations that facilitate placement of volunteers on organic farms. The WWOOF model is simple. WWOOF hosts provide volunteers with first-hand experience in organic and ecologically sound growing methods. WWOOF volunteers generally do not receive financial payment, instead exchanging their assistance with farming or gardening for food, accommodation, and the opportunity to learn. WWOOFing is a great way to see your own country or other countries and learn about local culture relatively inexpensively. It allows you to meet like-minded people and learn new skills, and you can specify how long you wish to stay at a host’s residence. This can range from anywhere from a week or two to many months. There are some awesome retreats and communal living properties which host WWOOFers. The great thing about the WWOOF experience is that you never know who you will meet or where this might take you. See: http://wwoofinternational.org/ 6. Learn about Land share/Shared Earth Land share is a growing movement which brings together people who have a passion for home-grown food, connecting those who have land to share with those who need land for cultivation. Since its launch through “River Cottage” in 2009 it has grown into a thriving community of more than 60,000 growers, sharers, and helpers. Land share has spread to numerous countries including Australia, Canada, UK, New Zealand, and the U.S., connecting people who want to grow their own fruit and veg (but don’t have anywhere to do it) with people who have land to spare. If there isn’t a Land share set up in your region this may present an opportunity to develop. Similarly, Shared Earth (based in the U.S.) is a free online service connecting land with gardeners. There are an estimated 10 million acres of front and back yards in America alone which are unproductive. These could be put to better use than simply growing grass! 7. Reassess Where You Live During the start of the industrial revolution people moved from smaller rural and regional areas to larger cities. Today, the most urbanized regions of the world include Northern America (82 per cent living in urban areas in 2014), Latin America and the Caribbean (80 per cent), and Europe (73 per cent). This rapid transformation from rural to urban has occurred over the last century, correlating with the growth and exploitation of fossil fuels and the abundance of cheap oil. Increasing populations have driven demand for real estate in certain cities, making many unaffordable. Cities can be expensive places to live and it is easy to become trapped in a never ending cycle of debt. Opportunities exist for a re-ruralisation of certain areas. With the average age of farmers increasing in most countries there will need to be a new breed of Permaculture trained people and eco farmers. In many countries, rural communities have dwindled and or been abandoned entirely. This presents opportunities for those wishing to make a change from an urban environment to rebuild and create a new future. 8. Become Involved With or Help Establish a Cooperative In the aftermath of the global financial crisis of 2008 and the resulting recession, co-ops have been recognized for their resilience. They have the ability to preserve jobs and economic infrastructure and support rural communities. Across the globe there are people working to rebuild local and regional food systems, and co-ops have a unique role to play. A food cooperative or food co-op is another model of food distribution coordinated and operated by members. Like most cooperative models they follow a number of principles designed to facilitate more socially responsible interactions. The primary distinction of a cooperative is that they are not influenced by external shareholders, being strictly managed by members. http://tinyurl.com/nmrozln
