Maude Barlow, an expert with Council of Canadians and Food and Water Watch, has said that this has been a trend for years now. In , the Syrian regime deregulated land use and gave vast quantities of land and water to its wealthy allies, severely diminishing the water table and driving nearly one million small farmers and herders off the land.

Many of them migrated to Aleppo where they are being targeted again. Also, more than four decades of Israeli occupation have made it impossible to develop or maintain infrastructure for water in Gaza, causing the contamination of drinking water and many deaths, declared Barlow.
In Southern Africa, Botswana is the only country cited among countries that use water as a weapon in ongoing conflicts against Basarwa indigenous hunter-gatherer people of southern Africa , which is facing the threat of shale gas fracking by international companies. Years ago, when Barsawa were displaced from their own land and yet insisted on returning to the deserts, government smashed their water borehole in an effort to force them back to the settlements.
They recently won a case and regained access to water. Grim prognosis A US report, released in , had said that beyond , says the use of water as a weapon of war or a tool of terrorism will become more likely, particularly in South Asia, West Asia and North Africa.

The report had also warned that the upstream nations—more powerful than their downstream neighbours due to geography — will limit access to water for political reasons and that countries will regulate internal supplies to suppress separatist movements and dissident populations. With only five per cent of the country getting at least millimetres of rainfall per year, Libya is one of the driest countries in the world.
But it has a hidden treasure and weapon.
According to reports, lying beneath the four African countries Chad, Egypt, Libya and Sudan, the Nubian Sandstone Aquifer System NSAS is the world's largest fossil water aquifer system, covering some two million square kilometres and estimated to contain , cubic kilometres of groundwater. Fossil water is groundwater that has been trapped in underground fossil aquifers for thousands or even millions of years.
And this can trigger further wars in the region that is already facing unrest. Report: Asian water development outlook measuring water security in Asia and the Pacific.

The meditative technique of focusing on the breath must be understood as simply a way to divert energy from the mind, and to bring consciousness deep into the unconscious aspects of your being.
The technique is not something to add to your mind or self-structure. As you move closer to Samadhi there is less mind, less technique, and less self, until there is a cessation of all activities of the self-structure. This cessation of identification with the self is Samadhi, and in that recognition of the dimension of stillness, the dawning of wisdom or prajna is possible.
Our first award-winning documentary film series Inner Worlds Outer Worlds took five years to complete, and since its release in has reached over 30 million people in over 30 languages. The Samadhi films, our most recent series, are enjoying the same widespread attention, and several other projects are in the works. Samadhi is an ancient Sanskrit word, for which there is no modern equivalent. Saints, sages, yogis and other seekers who have looked within themselves have come to realize that there is one vibratory source that is the root of all scientific and spiritual investigation.
The Pythagorean philosopher Plato hinted enigmatically that there was a golden key that unified all of the mysteries of the universe. Every scientist who looks deeply into the universe and every mystic who looks deeply within the self, eventually comes face to face with the same thing: The Primordial Spiral.

The spiral has often been represented by the snake, the downward current, while the bird or blooming lotus flower has represented the upward current or transcendence. The ancient traditions taught that a human being can become a bridge extending from the outer to the inner, from gross to subtle, from the lower chakras to the higher chakras. We have become slaves to our own desires and craving.
This is Maya, illusion, the endless play of form. It is not wrong to desire to be awake, to be happy, but we must come to realize that it can not be found outside of us. Part one of the film Inner Worlds, Outer Worlds. As Einstein realized, empty space is not really empty. Saints, sages, and yogis who have looked within themselves have also realized that within the emptiness is unfathomable power, a web of information or energy which connects all things.
This matrix or web has been called the Logos, the Higgs Field, the Primordial OM and a thousand other names throughout history. In part one of Inner Worlds, we explore the one vibratory source that extends through all things, through the science of cymatics, the concept of the Logos, and the Vedic concept of Nada Brahma the universe is sound or vibration.

The golden key is the intelligence of the logos, the source of the primordial om. One could say that it is the mind of God. The source of this divine symmetry is the greatest mystery of our existence. The primordial spiral is the manifested world, while Akasha is the unmanifested, or emptiness itself.

All of reality is an interplay between these two things; Yang and Yin, or consciousness and matter. To balance the inner and the outer is what the Buddha called the middle way, or what Aristotle called the Golden Mean. You can be that bridge. The full awakening of human consciousness and energy is the birthright of every individual on the planet.
We are so distracted by the outer world of form, thoughts and ideas, that we no longer take time to connect to our inner worlds, the kingdom of heaven that is within. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. In the Buddhist tradition, Samsara, or the endless cycle of suffering is perpetuated by the craving of pleasure and aversion to pain.
Even a simple organism like the paramecium does this.
It is called a response to a stimulus. Unlike a paramecium, humans have more choice. We are free to think, and that is the heart of the problem.
