Forgotten History

Once upon a time in Atlantis...

Yeah, there was an Atlantis. I have clear memories of being there and even remember what I was doing and who I was with. Science limits itself by its definition of evidence, and needs to expand. There are a lot of people throughout the world who remember living in Atlantis – the Hopi used to live there; so did the Mayans and Egyptians; and peoples from Mongolia; and many peoples in South America, like the Kogi, remember a time they lived there.

… a small group of people living there had developed consciously to a very high level, a level of awareness that many might find impossible for humans to attain. These few had broken the bonds of gravity and were able to levitate at will and do all sorts of amazing things. Most of the people living on Atlantis were much like us, however, with third-dimensional consciousness. Between the ordinary people and these very high level beings were another group that we know of called the Mayans, essentially the priesthood responsible for translating through ceremony.

Everything was fine for the longest time until a meteorite just missed the western shores of Atlantis, off the eastern shores of the U.S., destabilizing the continent when it hit. Four thousand years later, or about 13,000 years before now, the Earth experienced one of its cyclical pole shifts. The weakened continent of Atlantis could not withstand the pole shift and sank beneath the waves.

The high level beings on Atlantis knew this was going to happen well in advance, so they prepared for the event. One small group of these advanced beings built a very large pyramid out of stone. That pyramid sits today at the bottom of the ocean off the coast of Bimini. Inside the pyramid they built a technology called the merkaba in an attempt to control the fate of the continent of Atlantis, and eventually the entire planet. In their attempt they lost control of this technology with a devastating result. It unexpectedly split open dimensional levels between the third and fourth dimensions, exposing the ordinary people of Atlantis to a level of consciousness they were not prepared for, and allowed beings from other levels of existence to enter their world. The last two hundred years of Atlantis were very painful, with people sick and dying, and ended as a disaster bigger than one can imagine.

As a result of this unfortunate mistake, three men of this exclusive group, all Ascended Masters who had escaped the cycle of birth and death – Ra, Araragat, and Chiquetet Arlich Vomalites - came up with a novel solution to the crisis. Their idea was to restore our consciousness to the way it was before, so they built the Great Pyramid in Egypt before the collapse of Atlantis through a manipulation of consciousness. Modern science, to this day, can still not explain how the pyramids were constructed. We could not build them today. These three men built the Great Pyramid in a matter of hours, without laborers, and most amazingly... they built it from the top down at a specific place on the Earth in Egypt. When scientists checked the mortar between the stones, they are baffled that the mortar on top is older than the mortar at the base.

Form and structure have power, and some places on Earth have different energy than others. The Great Pyramid was not the only structure they built; there was actually a web, or network of structures built all over the planet at sacred sites. 83,000 of these buildings were built over time with the objective of changing the way the Earth functions. While these have been built largely by normal means over the past 13,000 years, the overall network itself was assembled by consciousness in a matter of hours in the fourth dimension. There still stand today thousands of amazing pyramids on every continent, but this number of structures also includes amazing churches, mosques, monasteries, temples, and such everywhere.

This was the beginning of an ancient science called Geomancy that we know only a little bit about. Geomancy is essentially a technology using stones, rocks, crystals, and even metal wires to change the energy flow of the Earth. All of these thousands of special buildings are situated on very precise points on the Earth's surface. They contribute to changing the flow of energy inside the Earth and the energy that flows above it. The net effect of doing this was to create a new consciousness grid to replace the one lost in Atlantis, where our planetary level of consciousness dropped down a level 13,000 years ago. (This is the same fall of man spoken of in the Bible.)

Without this grid, which surrounds the entire Earth, we cannot return to where we once were. All of this construction over the past 13,000 years has made possible the transformation in consciousness that we are now experiencing on the Earth. Without this grid, there would be no ascension. We are approaching a time when the entire collective human race will make the jump in consciousness back to where we were before the fall, back to a more harmonic way of interacting with the world and one another.

Welcome to the Dawning of the Age of Aquarius

In case anyone missed it, one month ago today there were two events which took place at exactly 6.22 pm UTC, and for the following 10-15 seconds, on the 21st of December 2020 during the Northern Hemisphere's Winter Solstice and the Southern Hemisphere's Summer Solstice.

First, a Grand Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn (in Aquarius) happened. Second, at that instant, 400,000 benevolent lightworkers across the world engaged in a long-planned activation meditation.

The positive energetic changes in the planet which those two events triggered in the lithosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere and sub-lunar space, at several dimensions and in several parallel quantum realities, are likely to change near-present and future human history on Earth permanently.

Most of these changes will be deeply and radically shocking to those who haven't yet got what has been going on behind the scenes, beneath the surface and above the atmosphere in recent years. But the changes themselves will be strongly benevolent for human civilization, culture, health, governance and finance. They will also, at last, be powerfully beneficial to the climate and the biosphere.

This being the case, it is tricky to make predictions in the usual, incremental and gradual way. So much now is happily uncertain. And so many people who know are observing a deep public silence about the likely specific outcomes.

There will, however, never be another year like 2020. That year was the last dance of the devil before its un-creation.

The pulse of new energies which flooded into Planet Earth on the 21st of December 2020 were the energies of pure galactic Love: Aquarian Goddess energies; the energies of transformative nurture, coherence, togetherness, sisterhood and brotherhood. They came through from the M87 galaxy in the Virgo cluster.

That pulse of new Aquarian energies flashed through the surface planetary grid and stabilized the positive ascension timeline for the planet. The good news timeline for humanity is now settled in place.

The pulse also set in train the deconstruction of the negative quantum matrix surrounding the Earth which was depressing the spirits of many in the surface human population, limiting their consciousness, making them ill and keeping them ill.

This matrix had been in place for 25,000 years and was originally constructed by negative entities from the Andromeda galaxy. These ETs had humanoid bodies and lived inside the Earth in subterranean cities. The matrix they constructed surrounded the whole planet on all sides and was, originally, a sort of scalar electromagnetic fence ('The Veil').

The Andromedan negatives had no direct or substantive contact with the surface human population until the early twentieth century. Then, in the West, their influence slowly became evident. Germany turned evil at the top levels of national governance.

Back to the present, after the new 21.12.20 energizations were grounded, benevolent ET lightships working in the sub-lunar space, and larger motherships stationed further out, were able to anchor pure Light on the surface of the Earth for the first time since 1996. The details of the races, species, people and processes involved in all this are esoteric and in some particulars have extreme X-files or Star Wars characteristics. It is time for Full Disclosure. Ready or not, we are all citizens of the stars, and the world is going to change incredibly fast... for the better. Welcome to the dawning of the Age of Aquarius!

Inauguration Day

On this momentous day – Inauguration Day following a fraudulent election – most Americans remain oblivious to what is happening. The number of citizens who appreciate the gravity of the nation's predicament at this crossroad is staggering... but not surprising. In most revolutions, it is the two percent that have assessed the situation properly and take the risks that avert the rest from going over a precipice. The same is true on this day. A very small minority of patriots realize what is at stake if we do not act decisively today.

Most of the public is content to be oblivious and maintain the status quo, come what may. Some may truly be called cowards, but most are simply ignorant or do not have the constitution to act in the face of dire circumstances. In such times, the heroes step forward. Not every one has what it takes to be a hero.

General George Washington knew in his time that most of the public was asleep during the Revolutionary War. He knew full well that there were just a few individuals that understood what was really going on. This is what he said: “The reflection upon my situation and that of this army produces many an uneasy hour, when all around me are rapt in sleep. Few people know the predicament we are in.”

Most people in the country, even Trump supporters, do not fully understand the predicament we are in. In time, we will sing songs about and erect statues to the gallant men and women who put their lives on the line to overthrow the weight of tyranny that looms should we not act. Thank God there are men and women who put justice and integrity above personal gain. They are heroes, heroes all.

Out My Back Door


Today is a day that will change everything – a day when a new direction for the world will be confirmed. It will be noted as a pivot point between before and after, between corruption and healing, between fear and confidence. But for me, the sun rises beautifully as I take this photo out my back door, as on any other perfect day here on earth. In my remote world, away from the noise of the world of “tambourines and elephants”, today is like any other – perfect and holy. The chickadees at my feeder sing the same song, not matter what. The world of men is anxious, but for the rest of nature, it is a never-ending celebration as usual.

Rather than wax political, I prefer to dote on Jung's reflection: “... silence surrounds me almost audibly and I live in modest harmony with nature. Thoughts rise to the surface, reaching back into the centuries, accordingly anticipating a remote future. Here the torment of creation is lessened; creativity and play are close together.”

Let the cards fall where they may. My life is an endless game of creativity and play. The world follows its timeline, I follow mine.  “Bother me tomorrow, today I'll got no sorrows. Doo, doo, doo, looking out my back door.”

God Bless America: Enjoy the Show

 

Shifting the Human Collective

There is massive corruption in our political system here in the United States – but it is also all over the world as well. There is massive corruption in our media. We have been massively lied to and brainwashed. The election was massively fraudulent. There was cheating, lying, stealing, and massive manipulation. The reason that a lot of people still cannot accept this is because of cognitive dissonance. They can't believe something like this could happen... and so they are not going to believe it. And they're okay with that. It doesn't seem to matter that it is an established absolute truth and that it did happen and continues to happen.

The reason everything is being shown to us this way is in order to show us the darkness. We have to see the darkness that has surrounded us; we have to see the shadows. We have to see it for ourselves so that we can come to believe it exists and so that we can choose a different and better way; so that we can choose to no longer listen to the mainstream media; so that we can choose to have a different kind of political system. But in order to choose, we have to confront the darkness, not only in the world... but within ourselves.

From a larger perspective, as a collective species, we are clearing our external consciousness and shifting into higher states of awareness. In order to do that, we must see the shadow of the world. At the same time our own shadow is being shown to us. As humans we often don't recognize that when something external like this happens, like when we are watching our political system be dismantled or watching the corruption come to life, it triggers the shadow side within each of us.

We need to allow ourselves to to find an understanding, to feel it, and allow it to be. Instead of just loving ourselves in detachment, we get emotionally involved and project those negative attachments out into the world as anger and rage. We may feel sad and defeated and great despair. It's okay. Really! We are only human, after all. But it is necessary to dive into the darkness, the shadow within each of us, in order for a genuine shift of our own consciousness to occur.

If you tune into your higher knowing, your intuition, your fundamental read on the world, you already know that in the end the light wins. Before that final victory, each of us may have to navigate some very intense moments. If each of us can honor everything that we are feeling in each now moment, not projecting it out on the external world, not only will we individually be able to shift more quickly into higher states of consciousness, but so will the human collective.

All we have to do, no matter what happens, is love ourselves, have compassion for ourselves, and have empathy for ourselves. That is all that is necessary for our energy to shift where we want it to be. The moment when you make the space to allow yourself to feel what is happening within – and not reflect it outward – is the moment everything shifts.

Whether you see it approaching or not, there is a lot of change coming – a lot that will create uncomfortable emotions. If we don't change how we react and just continue to perpetuate a thoughtless external reaction, we are only perpetuating the consciousness we seek to clear.

Just go inside and feel it. Maybe it will take hours and hours of time alone to feel it, but when you put in the time, the release will come, and generally quickly. The anger and rage that you may have felt simply evaporates as you move up in frequency. Peace and calm will find you if you just allow yourself to feel the sadness, to feel yourself out of control, to just go with whatever you are feeling inside.

Feel whatever enters in moment to moment. Take time out and just feel what is inside you. Feel it deeply. Whatever it is you feel, ask yourself, “Can I love this? Can I love this emotion right now? Can I love myself feeling this way?” Ask yourself, “ Can I just let go?”

A lot of the suffering and a lot of the emotional experience we are having is because we have been restricted, trying to control outcomes. Just let it go. Don't try to control how you feel. They're your feelings. Own them. Let them go. Forget about trying to change external outcomes. Let it go.

Ask yourself, “Can I trust? Do you trust that the light wins? Do you trust that what is unraveling is for the good of humanity, no matter how it may appear? Can you trust the fact that by letting go of trying to control everything you are feeling, you are shifting yourself... and shifting the greater human collective at the same time? Can you trust that?”

Feel what comes through you. It's not about anybody or anything else but you. This is how you shift yourself. This is how we all shift together.

Can you love this? Can you let go and trust it? The sooner we acknowledge our shadow as a part of us, the faster we allow ourselves as individuals and as a collective.

It's alright to still get angry. Go ahead, stand up and speak your mind. We're talking balance here, not one extreme or the other. It's okay to get upset. Then go inward and ask yourself, “What needs to be felt?” If it is sadness, then feel it. Cry, break down if you feel it. If that is the way you feel, then allow it, because by allowing it you are able to come into a very empowered, very centered and aligned state of being. Your frequency shifts the moment you allow yourself to feel.

If you get stuck in anger and getting upset at what is transpiring it is only going to take longer for the entire human collective to shift. It's alright to get upset by all that has been going on, but don't project those emotions outward. Feel them to their fullest extent, then let them go. Take a deep breath, then exhale. Yelling at someone, fighting, blowing things up, burning things – that is a human not wanting to deal with their own shadow.

We are clearing the human collective and clearing our own frequency – we are going from a lower frequency to a higher frequency. We cannot do that without seeing the shadow within as well as the shadow on the outside. When we witness physical aggression on a riotous scale, what we are watching is unconscious humans feeling their shadow, but unable to deal with it internally, so they project it outward.

This is what we came here as humans to learn. We are here to feel it all and to bring it all back into balance. This is all about you. This is all about me. This is all about how we are collectively shifting that insane dark consciousness that has surrounded us our entire lives. The U.S. elections have allowed a lot of shadow to come into the light. Some of us are ready, but some of us are still not ready to go inward to feel so that we can all shift.

Things are going to get even more intense. We will see things we may have never imagined were real. Terrible things. The amount of corruption is more than most of us could ever imagined. Now it is all coming out into the open. And it does not feel good.

But it is allowing us to shift on a large scale, like never before. It is allowing us to stand in our hearts, in our sovereignty, in our own light, in our own integrity, allowing us to love ourselves to such a degree that we will love everyone else in the process.

The moment you sit alone in your sadness will be the moment you know it is all okay. We are going to get through this. The dark has to be seen. We have to witness this difficult time in order to shift out of it. You've got to feel the lower frequencies within to springboard to higher frequencies. Be courageous. Come home to your heart, your breath, your light, and to all the emotions you are feeling. Take it all in and just let it out.

The True Story of the Tortoise and the Hare

The famous story of the ‘Hare and the Tortoise’ was written long ago by Aesop.

In this story, you recall, the hare lost the race. Thereafter, an adage was coined, wherein everyone in the world started quoting the example of Tortoise by saying the slow and steady winner of the race demonstrates the values of persistence and dedication.

But, no one has ever bothered to ask the Hare his version of the story. So let me tell you the story from a different point of view. I once met the Hare and sat down with him for a heart to heart talk. And this is what the hare had to say after we spent the better part of a balmy summer afternoon getting to know each other.

It was a wonderful experience talking to the hare and this is what he had to say.

Yes, I am the hare who lost the race. No, I did not get lazy or complacent. Let me explain how I saw things.

I was hopping over the meadows near the hills and looked back to realize that the tortoise was nowhere in sight.

Assured of my healthy lead, I decided to take a short nap under the large banyan tree near the pond.

The pressure of the race had kept me up all night. For days, that old silly tortoise had boasted about his ability to plod for hundreds of miles without stopping.

Life is a marathon, said the hare and not a sprint. So, I wanted to show him that I could run both far and fast.

The shade of the tree was like an umbrella. I found an oval rock, covered it with grass, and turned it into a makeshift pillow.

I could hear the leaves rustling and the bees buzzing – I felt they were collaborating and even conspiring to put me to sleep. And it didn’t take them long to succeed.

I saw myself floating on a log in a beautiful stream of water. As I came near the shore, I found an old man, with a flowing beard, sitting on a rock in a meditative pose. He opened his eyes, gave me an all-knowing smile, and asked:

Who are you?”

I am a hare that is running a race.”

But why?”

Just to prove to all the creatures in the jungle that I am the fastest.”

But, why do you want to prove that you are the fastest?” asked the old man.

So that I get a medal which will give me status which will give me money and that’ll get me food…”

There is already so much food around.” He pointed at the forest located at a close distance. “Look at all those trees laden with fruits and nuts, all those leafy branches. It’s all for you. Go eat.”

But I also want respect. I want to be remembered as the fastest hare who ever lived.”

Do you know the name of the fastest deer or the largest elephant or the strongest lion who lived a thousand years before you?” asked the old man.

No” said the hare.

Today you have been challenged by a tortoise. Tomorrow, it will be a snake. Then it will be a zebra. Will you keep racing all your life to prove that you are the fastest?” asked the old man.

Hmm. I didn’t think in that manner. Sorry, I don’t want to race all my life.”

So then, what do you want to do?”

I want to sleep under a banyan tree on a makeshift pillow while the leaves rustle and the bees buzz. I want to hop over the meadows near the hills and swim in the pond.”

You can do all these things this very moment, so forget the race. Life is so uncertain. You are here today, but you will be gone tomorrow,” said the old man.

And I suddenly woke up from my sleep. The ducks in the pond looked happy. I jumped into the pond, startling them for a moment. They looked at me quizzically and asked.

Weren’t you supposed to be racing with the tortoise today?”

It’s a pointless race. An exercise in futility. All I want in life is to be here,” said the hare.

Hopefully, someday, someone will tell the world my story. That I lost the rat-race but won the life race.

The idea of a good life is a balance … friends. Hare tells us that.

Letting Go of Outcomes

We all have to reconcile when things don’t go our way. The current state of political affairs in thie world will ultimately conclude with a large percentage of people being unhappy. Sometimes the act of reconciliation is more important than getting what we originally wanted, however.

Somewhere in our past as children we learned that crying or pouting might get us that treat in the grocery store from Mom. Memory of that behavior is still there, somewhere in the recesses of our minds; the urge to try this strategy as adults may still linger in the background, but it likely would be far less effective, if not embarrassing, since we are now adults.

Does it still seem that more things seem to not go the way we want them to than the other way around? Murphy's Law states that if anything can go wrong, it will. When things go wrong, as they seem to so often do, do you sometimes want to crawl off into a corner or have a temper tantrum?

There is always another alternative way to respond - we can handle misfortune gracefully. Grace isn’t about suppressing heart-ache or failure so much as it is about being present and honest about things while holding our dignity. That’s why we always love stories about the underdog becoming triumphant... and why we empathize when they are not.

About twenty years ago, a dear friend of mine was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Her doctor performed surgery, but the cancer was so extensive she was told she did not have much longer to live. As a new mother with a little girl, it was the most crushing news she and her husband could receive. Since orthodox medicine did not have a solution and sent her home with a terminal prognosis, Shari abandoned their forecast outcome and immediately set about to fully live in the moment – every moment – and dig down into her health imbalance to seek solutions both within and in the world at large.

Living well past her two-month prognosis, Shari lived seventeen years in defiance of all formal medical understanding, bringing three more healthy little girls into the world during that time. Abandoning the bad news, she set about to change everything about her lifestyle and thinking that she believed contributed to her health challenge. Though she ultimately passed, leaving a heartbroken husband and four sweet daughters, her wisdom continues to inspire everyone who knew her, including her doctors. She was such a great example of grace under the worst possible duress – the threat of losing it all.

Most of us have heard, “It is the journey, not the destination” or “It’s not about winning or losing, but about how you play the game”. Such words of wisdom have become so clich├ęd that we may forget to embody them. Life is full of challenges for each of us. Remember that is why we came here in the first place – to learn lessons from the challenges we agreed to. Throughout our lives we are called to embody the spiritual wisdom that invites us to remain present in the moment, to love fearlessly and cultivate compassion for ourselves and all those around us.

It is possible to be at peace at any time you choose if you pierce through the false reality we have been made to believe, based upon the idea of life and death, to touch the ultimate reality in which the energy we are made of can neither be created nor destroyed. By recognizing the interconnectedness of all existence, we can move beyond the idea that we are separate, and expand our compassion and love in such a way that we take action to better meet our challenges and overcome them as best we can with grace.

A crisis such as we find in the world at this moment may be one of our greatest opportunities to take a look at things that are not working and change our course in history. It is essential for our creativity and health to always choose love instead of fear as a lens through which we see the world – especially now.

Stress is almost always the result of fear, or worrying about outcomes. Peace almost always arises when we can be fully present in the moment. If we make now the destination then we will find that we are already here and outcomes in the future will mean a whole lot less. Right action is its own reward, we don’t need to chase dangling carrots.

We will not have this world as we know it forever, but right now the sun is still rising every morning. We have so much that we overlook as we gaze into the future. The solutions we seek may just present themselves effortlessly if we can become fully present and receptive in the moment. If the world ends tomorrow, what will it matter if we took the time to enjoy it today?

Alien Invasion

@ Randy Cramer, United States Marine Corps, SSP Earth Defense Force

Sources at the Earth Defense Force have received recent credible intelligence that Earth has become a planet of interest to a certain aggressive insectoid alien civilization. It is believed there is more than a reasonable chance that we may see them in our solar system sometime soon and that they intend to land on Earth. At a time when the entire planet is in upheaval both politically and financially, it is more than a little bit concerning that our damaged planet may be facing perhaps an existential challenge of an alien invasion.

It is not the first time there has been an incursion of similar insectoid aliens. Near Crestone, Colorado, in the shadow of Blanca Peak in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, a group of Marines were sent in to gas out a visiting contingent of ant beings that began setting up a hive there because they were displaying unfriendly characteristics, and were too close for comfort to underground military installations near there. Blanca Peak and the area to the west where the Great Sand Dunes are located provide access to a vast hived network tunneled out by ancient ant species long before there were humans on the Earth. The extensive sand of the dunes came from those tunnels deep underground, piled up the way all ants do when they tunnel. Interestingly, the Navajo people claim that it was the ant people who saved their nation by taking them underground when the surface was being destroyed long ago. Their legends say that the ant people led them back to the surface when it was safe where they emerged from a supapu (entrance to the underworld) in the vicinity of Blanca Peak, one of the sacred mountains for the Navajo.

Regarding this particular insectoid species, quite a bit is known about the way it operates, but it's not good news. Can we fight them? Certainly, but we'll have to use technology that as of yet has not been shared or introduced on the planet. Tech in use against enemy combatants in space by Secret Space Forces (largely Marines) like hydraulically-operated battle suits and plasma rifles with a higher melting point like a plasma ball or Gauss rifles with higher penetration projectiles. These insectoid aliens have exoskeletons, often three inches thick, that are resilient enough that lead bullets just bounce off of them. It won't matter if the public is armed with firearms and standard munitions, citizens will be defenseless unless they have phosphorus rounds that heat up to higher temperatures.

So one might ask, if we have this Space Force that most of us heretofore have not been made aware of, is it planning to take measures to block a ground invasion before they reach the surface. Whatever level of technological advancement that our Space Force currently has, while it is certainly effective, does not mean a ground invasion can be avoided. It's all going to come down to how many ships they bring and how large of a battle group we have to meet them in space, whether or not we can enlist the support of other alien allies, and whether resident species in our oceans and underground choose to join in the surface conflict. We are not going to know what we are dealing with until we are able to measure the size of their fleet as they approach and secure commitments of allied support. Like ant species on Earth, this species has a hive mentality. There is no individual thinking or chain of command. The loss of individual members is immaterial. They will bring a very large force and fight relentlessly until they prevail or every last insectoid is vanquished. That is why they are so formidable. The SSP will use everything they have learned tactically as a defensive and offensive military space-faring species, but there are no guarantees on how successful our space force will be against a large aggressive force like this. Have Marines in space faced this species before? Yes, so there is experience with them.

This insectoid species has got considerable experience with hostilities. Aggression and conquest is their way of life. Because the citizens of Earth have never had a serious disclosure as to the abundance of lifeforms that humans interact with in space, in our own oceans, and within our planet under the surface, we are at a great disadvantage in preparing for such an event. There will need to be a forced disclosure event, and soon, so that the planetary citizenry can quickly get up to speed before the invasion begins. Two things could quickly result: Either a significant majority of the human population will become casualties or we will somehow unite and work together to exercise a coordinated defense of the planet. This is not a battle that Earth can win without off-planet support, however

Most of their fleet will consist of landing craft for personnel transport. Big ships will have smaller lander ships filled with fight-to-the-death soldier drones that will be dropped off to wreck havoc. This insectoid species is essentially giant bugs that do all the things that giant bugs do - like swarm in vast numbers and overwhelm. These creatures stand between seven and eight feet tall; they walk on all fours and use their arms and manipulative digits when they stand. They are big, fast, and scary – and carnivorous, so they can quickly bite off a person's head, eat people, or just tear them apart. We are their food. They are a lot like driver ants that can take down a tethered horse in a short period of time – relentless, aggressive, and hostile.

As a concerning caveat, Randy Cramer emphatically suggested at the conclusion of his disclosure on the Gaia Network on January 12, 2021, that we are going to find out soon enough. Intuitively, I don't sense this as being imminent – certainly not in 2021 or 2022, and I don't have any sense of dread hanging out there until toward the end of the decade. Perhaps in some unforeseen manner the crisis it portends may ultimately be averted. One can only hope we are that lucky. Certainly enough time to stock up on bug spray!!!!! Being familiar with Randy Cramer for several years now, however, and appreciating his impeccable credibility, I would say we should nonetheless be vigilant for any further information in this regard.

The Warrior's Path

There are only two paths in life to choose from. One is the carefully examined life of the warrior who follows a path of righteousness in service to Spirit by design, while patiently waiting to return from whence he came. The warrior understands what he is waiting for. Then there are those who tire and lose faith and patience with the examined life. They follow a heartless path that revolves around their own personal history. Everything is personal for those who give up.

The warrior knows that nothing can befall us except for what we consciously choose to experience. There is no fear on the path with a heart. Ultimate freedom comes from surrendering choice, paradoxically, and yielding the personal to the Divine Rule. It is the self-importance of the ordinary man that destroys his spiritual energy. Without a warrior's self discipline, self-importance gradually reduces the average man to a self-indulgent, pitiful, spineless creature waiting in fear to die.

Anonymity and obscurity are the greatest treasure and most powerful weapon of the warrior, When you cease the struggle, you surrender to nothingness before your time. There are no second chances when facing the unknowable powers of the Universe. The warrior's path connects one to a Universe that is always full of challenge, but one that can only be followed alone. Only through discipline can one learn detachment.

A warrior tunes himself through arduous discipline. Without false hopes, he faces death as the next stage in his travel along the path. A warrior's life is based upon impeccability instead of faith. Each action plays a role in determining whether total freedom (heaven) is ever achieved.

Time to Fear We the People

This famous quote defines two different states of relationship between the U.S. Government and the people they allegedly represent. Either a state where the citizens of this country hold their government accountable to their oaths to uphold the Constitution, or a state where the nation falls into tyranny because the citizens fail to do their job and hold their government accountable. There is no doubt which of these two states is the state of this country today.

The citizens of the United States still live in fear of their government, and the country has been seized by tyrants. By the term “government” I am not simply referring to our “elected” officials, but also to those who benefit from the government as well as control it, which include the Central bankers and Wall Street billionaires, primarily using Big Pharma and Big Tech to enslave the population.

While this group of Big Pharma, Tech, and Government officials may appear “big” and “powerful,” they really are a small minority among us. Because they are few compared to the rest of us, the one thing they fear more than anything else is YOU and ME! The government fears the people disobeying them and rising up against them, but recently we, the people, have given them nothing to be afraid of, and so they are making their boldest move yet to enslave the American people.

If Americans want to take their country back and drain the swamp, we better start planning to do it ourselves, and not leave it all to Donald Trump to save the rest of us. If we the people want to make the government fear us, we don’t need President Trump to help us, although he is certainly welcome to start overseeing the arrest and prosecution of treasonous officials and others, particularly pedophiles involved in Satanic ritual abuse. But we should not be depending upon Trump to do all the work. We the people, united together to fight our common enemies, can and must be able to do it without him.

We need to stop fighting each other over fake political divides like Right vs. Left, and Liberal vs. Conservative. The government and all of the actors that empower the government, which includes domestic as well as foreign players - all bad actors - are our common enemy.

The second American Civil War has already started, and our common enemy has fired the first shots in a cyber warfare where the opposition has struck first by using Big Tech to silence the speech of its opposition, seeking to control all communications. This is all part of a plan that has been unfolding for decades; the COVID Plandemic was the fuel they needed to advance their agenda of expanded control over the rest of us. It is a battle that has been built on fear - fear over an “unseen enemy” that is nothing more than an ordinary virus blown out of proportion.

We who live in the United States are very fortunate, because we already have blueprints to take back our country called the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. We certainly do not need the police state to issue martial law and suspend the Constitution. Massive public resistance, all done legally within the written law of the Constitution, is all that is needed.

Could there be violence? Sure, if honest citizens and peace officers trying to make peaceful arrests meet resistance from proxies of the tyrants. In such case the Constitution provides for its citizens to bear arms, and form militias. Those are the principles from which this Republic was founded, and such actions done appropriately are within our legal right.

What is illegal are the actions of the tyrants and the some of the current police state. The police state is so well armed, that it may ultimately take good men and women defecting from the military and law enforcement to join citizens to counter any resistance with local militia groups. But maybe even more crucial than armed militias will be defectors from the intelligence communities, and Big Tech corporations, as our civil war is more of a cyber war.

Any actions taken in this cyber war that involve protecting our Constitutional rights such as the right to privacy, our right to free speech, our right to assemble together, should not be seen as illegal, but fully Constitutional and legal. The swamp has fired the first shot, and we have every right to use whatever means is necessary to disrupt their networks and communication systems in defense of the Constitution to defend our rights.

Big Tech has become arrogant and has over-played its hand. It is very vulnerable, and it is time it fears the power and authority of the people. Criminals now run this country, both in the government and in the private sectors. Let us no longer fear our government; it is time to give them cause to fear we the people.

The Tyranny Nobody Talks About

All the tricks to hide our unaffordable cost structure have reached marginal returns. Reality is about to intrude.

There is much talk of tyranny in the political realm, but little is said about the tyranny in the economic realm, a primary one being the tyranny of high costs: high costs crush the economy from within and enslave those attempting to start enterprises or keep their businesses afloat.

Traditionally, costs are broken down into fixed costs such as rent and fees which don't change regardless of whether business is good or bad, and operating costs such as payrolls, fuel, etc. which rise and fall with revenues.

To some degree, this division no longer matters, because the entire cost structure of our economy is tyrannically high: if rent, insurance, taxes and general overhead don't eat you alive, then labor overhead (healthcare insurance, etc.) and other operating costs will.

The major players in the U.S. economy used four tricks to offset the ever-higher costs: globalization, financialization, reducing quality/quantity and turning the workforce into neofeudal gig economy precariats. By offshoring high-wage manufacturing to nations with lax environmental standards and enforcement, Corporate America scored a two-fer: drastically lower costs of production in both labor and environmental controls.

The feudal lords of our financial system, the Federal Reserve, cemented capital's complete dominance over labor by dropping interest rates to zero and flooding Corporate America with trillions of dollars of essentially free money. The 20-year decline in interest rates allowed Corporate America to refinance debt at absurdly low rates, and borrow trillions more at absurdly low rates to buy back stocks, enriching the managers and top 5% who own the vast majority of equities.

The Fed's free trillions also enabled Corporate America to leverage and arbitrage resources, staff and capital around the world at a nearly frictionless cost of capital. (Meanwhile, the precariat labor force was still being charged 18% and higher for credit. Nice spread if you can get it - thanks, Fed, for distorting the cost of credit and risk to benefit the few at the expense of the many.)

As for drastically reduced quality and quantity - all you have to do is open your eyes and look. Cold cereal boxes are now so tall and narrow (to maintain the illusion of quantity via the size of the box on the shelf) that they cannot even stand upright on their own any more. As for the contents - barely half the box contains a product; the rest is air.

The list of products that fail by design or cost-cutting is essentially endless, as is the list of products whose ingredients have been cheapened and the list of manufactured goods stripped of quality so when the cheapest component (often a sensor or chip in today's digital-obsessed consumerist paradise) fails, the entire device must be tossed in the landfill because repair is now either impossible or too costly.

This ceaseless reduction of quality and quantity has reached the end of the line: the cold cereal boxes are already falling over, the can of tuna has already shrunk to a few ounces, the paint is already peeling off the new appliance, the sensor has already failed in the new dryer - there's nothing left to cheapen or reduce. The game of fooling an oblivious or resigned consumer is over. The price will now have to rise with actual costs.

As for the stripmining of labors' security - there's still room to run here as permanent workforces become a thing of the past and everyone becomes a precariat. The problem here is precariats can no longer afford to consume or borrow more money at 18% interest and so what do we do now to support expanding consumption and debt?

We have the federal government borrow trillions and distribute the dough to the precariats, under-employed and unemployed, essentially forever. This will appear to be without consequence until it's too late to save the financial system and economy from imploding as the dollar loses another 95% of its already-diminished purchasing power.

So why don't we look at the sources of the high costs that are eroding the economy? Because every high-cost structure is someone's gravy train: some politically sacrosanct and untouchable special interest or class of insiders depends on ever-higher costs to fund their ever-higher wages, benefits, profits, etc., and they will not be denied their gravy train.

Since healthcare, higher education, local government, etc. is unaffordable, let's print money and give it away as the "solution" to unaffordability. This faux "solution" merely transfers the rising risk of collapse to the entire economy.

Cryptos: New Tool of Tyranny or Liberation?

Alex Jones was in full agreement with the Bitcoin crowd for about five seconds this week, when he proclaimed the slow death of fiat currencies. However, in the next breath, he warned that the replacement for the inflated fiat corpse would be something even more terrifying: a “blockchain or Bitcoin-style system” run by the globalists.

Even among Bitcoin believers, the question remains: is BTC really the freedom currency it’s made out to be? Or is it simply the final digital pawn in the globalist endgame? As with everything Jones says, there’s room for interpretation. But if Bitcoin/blockchain is being set up as the next globally-controlled system, then the new boss is no better than the old boss.

In fact, it may be many magnitudes worse. At least with fiat, you can hide the money under your bed, and trade it in local circles for banned/illegal goods and services. Right now, the proliferation of darknet markets is evidence that Bitcoin can play the latter role. Likewise, the ongoing Craig Wright saga is proof that millions can be kept private, despite the best efforts of the legal system.

But if Bitcoin really is the future, and the future is ruled by the same people who rule the present, then that won’t be the case for long. The only way for Bitcoin to succeed with its virtue intact is to destroy the current system – not to become a part of it. Otherwise, blockchain will be remembered as the harbinger of economic tyranny, rather than its liberator. As Alex Jones warns, we’re at the end of an age. Given the rapid decline in the use of cash for everyday purposes, there seems little doubt that the future of money is digital. But who’s going to be in charge of those digits – them or us?

Wanted: A Valiant Few

The great nation of the United States is under a curse, or so it would seem. In the Scriptures, it says that when people are under a curse, when they are out of step with God in the way they conduct their lives, they may think they have it all because they lay up wealth and treasure, but it's all no better than putting money in a bag with holes in it. No matter how full you stuff it, you are just going to leave a trail of money.

We've been doing something like that here in America for a long time. Most of us know something is wrong. We sense it, but we have trouble pointing the finger. We work hard and do our best to accomplish great things. We know we are smart, yet we are missing something right in front of us – we are missing the curse on the land that comes from events that heretofore have not been dealt with, nor reconciled. When a murder was done in times past, until the murderer was found and brought to justice, the crops wouldn't do well, the rain wouldn't come. It was widely recognized by the people that you had to bring justice to the world before things would again be right.

Such is the time and place we have arrived in America today. Something is wrong, and until we make it right, we cannot move forward and reclaim our destiny. Another place in the Scriptures, it is asked: “Who will be valiant for justice' sake?” Who among us will stand up to make it right again? We have a whole country full of people who are just satisfied being observers. The stolen future that we have lost - all the promises, the beautiful dreams of things we saw that we were going to accomplish and enjoy in our generation have been stolen from us. Sure, we've done great things - we went to the moon, and that was great. But since then all we have been doing is just going in circles – round and round and round with never a straight answer about what is really going on.

Big doors turn on tiny hinges – since one event in our history – the future of generations has been lost. So how do we break the curse? What is required? Those who have blocked us from apprehending and prosecuting those behind the theft are the very same criminals holding us back. They perpetrated one event in 1963, the murder of not just a remarkable individual who had great influence here in America, but one whose aim was to never again kick the can down the road.

The coup that brought him down has been going on a long time – call it the stealing of America, the cutting of holes into the bag where we keep our wealth has been perfected and amplified over generations. The final dagger into the heart of America was one murder. Since that event, those dark angels have restrained, choked, and bound America from doing that which was its destiny. Our future was stolen from us by men whose sole aim was to advance their own interests, selling their souls in the process for as much power and control, as they could grab, enslaving their fellow man to serve their agenda, ever pursuing gain in this world without thought to the next.

There are many among us who are called to break this curse, like sentinels who have observed and are now ready to act. The country and world need those willing to step forward and act right now, to stand our ground and not give up, no matter what the cost. and never again ignore the injustice perpetrated on the people of this great nation. The question each of us must ask remains: “Who among us will be valiant for justice' sake?”

Remembering Snookie

Today marks one month since the passing of our kitty cat Snookie. Despite the passing of time and the easing of emotional distraught, it is still with a profound sense of loss that I sit and reflect on our time with her over the past sixteen years. The lifespan of a pet is far shorter than ours typically, and while one would think there is adequate time to prepare for the inevitable end, when it finally occurs it still leaves a big hole in our hearts and lives.

I still catch myself inadvertently looking for her when I return from a trip or from a run. It was as much a habit to greet her as it was to kiss my wife whenever I was away for any length of time. Snookie was not just a furry friend that enjoyed being touched and loved, she was an integral part of most every aspect of our daily routines.

Snookie's grave is by a large rock in the woods in view of my office window, so I continue to greet her often, but of course it is not the same. While it was Ann who found Snookie as a baby kitty hiding under the neighbor's porch, frightened and hungry after being abandoned, she has always been my cat. Snookie and I always had this special connection, obvious to most everyone. She absolutely adored me, or so it seemed – allowing me to handle her in ways that she would not tolerate others doing. She was my kitty wife, and I can only guess at how she must have looked at me - certainly with a profound love, something I never shared to such a degree with another pet, or ever expect to find again.

I could pick her up any time and hold her in my arms on her back like an infant, with all four legs up in the air, and for long periods we would just look into each others' eyes in a wondrous sustained stare of mutual affection. As a feral cat, there was always a certain wildness in her that one would expect, but I found a kindred spirit in those round wonderful black eyes and in her steadfast, unwavering love. In some way, we were two of a kind; it goes beyond explanation and always will.

Snookie is the name we called her, but she seemed to acknowledge the use of other “pet” names. My son Keith always called her Caitlin, while I would call her Poogie Pie or Purr Ball more often than not, and generally referred to her as “the Beast” when speaking to Ann about her. There was nothing I could do that would compromise the affection this kitty cat had for me. All I needed to do was make a threatening low guttural growl when approaching her, and she'd start purring warm-heartedly. Any other cat would have run for the hills.

Snooks slept between my legs most every night all of her life, at least until I got restless. It was her place of comfort and safety; her home base. All was right in her world when she was with dad. She loved mom too, increasingly so in the latter years. Our evening ritual for dinner and an hour or two of television was for Snookie to take up her position between Ann and I on the couch where we each could rub her belly or her head and share morsels of dinner or a lick of ice cream before bedtime.

Snookie always liked her back feet held when she would lay down between us. If I wasn't already holding firm the pads of her back feet, she would maneuver around so that she could push her feet into my hand. Then she would move around so that Ann could rub her head and neck. It was enjoyable, for both of us, to hold her back feet and rub her tummy at the same time. Life was good and she purred a lot.

I hated to see her decline in her latter years. Snookie was such a vibrant wild cat much of her life. In a house we owned across the road from where we live now, my office/bedroom was in a loft that opened onto a balcony. I would leave the sliding glass door open at night so that she could come and go as she pleased. She could sit on the banister on the balcony and survey much of her domain before climbing down ten feet to the ground where she would hunt in the surrounding woods and yard most every night.

Her biggest success was with capturing flying squirrels, many of which she would climb back up to the porch and bring into the house by the cuff of the neck for show and tell. I had never seen a flying squirrel before Snookie started bringing them in to show off her catches. Those that were still alive I could set free; holding these bug-eyed flying creatures in your hands, they were the gentlest of God's critters.

Snookie captured and ate more than her fair share of wild things, especially chipmunks, birds, and mice. She'd go after frogs, snakes, and lizards too, but their entertainment value dropped off quickly after a couple cold-blooded captures. She'd even bagged a few rabbits in the early years. One large adult rabbit that she brought to the front door for show and tell served as dinner that evening for Ann and I, thank you very much. Over the years her hunting prowess gradually diminished and she was satisfied staying indoors most of the time and didn't venture much further than to watch the birds at the feeder through the picture window.

Like all cats, Snookie would watch at the window at night. It is hard to tell what creatures or mysterious sights she saw in the dark in all those years of feline vigilance. Cats and people are different enough that there will always be much we don't know about or understand of the other. Her time with us was meant to be, I sincerely believe; she just seemed destined to be a part of our lives all these precious years. Now that she has left us, I miss her terribly. 

On the morning of her last day, Snookie was stretched out on the carpet with her head between her front paws, lying still to ease her obvious discomfort from severe stomach pain.  Laying down flat beside her, she didn't have the energy even to lift her head.  I looked into her listless eyes and stroked her back without saying a word. Her eyes focused on mine as if to say "dad, I really hurt bad" and she reached out one paw to gently touch my eye as she often did in a gesture that I will always regard as her way of saying goodbye, I love you so much.  The look in her eyes at that moment is etched into my memory permanently; I have a clear visual memory of it every time I think of her.  It was a final deep exchange between two lights of consciousness that shared a bond of wildness and profound affection for too brief a time on this earth.  I take a certain degree of comfort in believing that when it is my time to also leave this physical realm, Snookie will be waiting to be held so that we can again stare into the depths of each others' souls and take up where we left off.

A Land Full of Love

A land full of love, color and surreal prosperity.
I am sad to see our world in a nocturnal way,
profoundly dark and dingy. The light
carried away by hatred and evil, riots and corruption.

Our earth, home, planet, safety net
of which makes us feel at ease… is struggling
with us and our loss of humanity.
Global error of sadness offering nothing
but forthcoming pain.

My mind is whipped to dust and my
soul is coping with internal pressure
to become something more than the world I see.
Once was a followed flower by many
shining stars, now a shell of once was.
Dull, gloomy and afraid.

I wish the rainbows would return
and we can live again, never to worry.
Not to ever lose hope and to
always make room for love and kindness to all.

What an Old Man Knows

Across a lifetime, with the piling on of years, I often reflect upon whether I have gained in wisdom or whether I have, on net, lost more in the bargain than I have gained. I like to think my sword is still sharp, mostly, and that I am open-minded to fresh perspectives. When I used to teach high school science and would wander off from time to time into topics of interesting esoteria, I would often conclude a class by admitting that I might be wrong about all that I just spoke of.

But maybe I'm avoiding an obvious truth, after all is said and done, that I'm just like most guys my age and suffer with a condition of all-knowingness called “Old Man’s Disease” (OMD) - defined as the mental condition that causes us to believe that we know everything. Sufferers of Old Man’s Disease know how all things were, are, and will be. The victims of this affliction generally can’t be told anything new that will change their minds. They like to argue, but aren't interested in your side of the argument. While I think I am amenable to new ideas, perhaps I am like most OMD victims; I like to think I know about health and politics and history and how to handle most any problem that comes along, but at the same time I'm still not shy about admitting “I may not know for sure” when confronted with someone stubbornly convinced that they know more than I.

You don't have to be a man or even be old to have OMD. Old Man’s Disease is probably more prevalent than anyone suspects. I've seen a lot of it lately with the covid and political crap we've been facing. How often do you say “I don’t know”? If you’re like me, you probably stretch the truth more than you'll admit. There’s not much in our daily lives most of us “feel” like we don’t know, for better or worse!

I come to find out that this ubiquitous illusory sense of all-knowingness may not be our fault after all. According to Nobel-prize-winning psychologist Daniel Kahneman writing in his book “Thinking Fast and Slow,” this know-it-all tendency is part of our genetic heritage and is a feature of what he calls System One, a part of our awareness that evolved to deal with potential survival threats represented by the unknown. Kahneman says System One operates on a survival imperative, reacting first and asking questions later. This part of our built-in decision-making apparatus is fast-acting, automatic, intuitive, and non-rational. When we see a photograph of a snarling lion or a cop having a bad day, it’s the part of us that knows that it’s looking at the appearance of anger and it arrives at its conclusion instantaneously, without deliberation or rationalization. And what’s worse, it never questions its assessments. It simply “knows.”

The problem with our sense of certainty and knowingness is that it has a tendency to close us off from new ideas and concepts. There’s a type of tyranny to knowledge. How many wars have been fought and how many people have died because someone ”knew” what was good and right and moral. In our personal lives, “knowing” closes us off from exploration and originality. Knowing is the antithesis of curiosity. And worst of all, knowing can shackle possibilities and potentials, for when we “know” how and what something is and we “know” how and what something is not we will be less likely to look for possibility. On the other hand, when we open ourselves up to “I don’t know” through acknowledging our ignorance and diving into the mysterious un-known, we can experience an entirely different universe and a brand new reality. The boredom and ennui that inextricably linked to our tired old way of doing and being will give way to thrillingness and excitement, a freshness that is the chief feature of the nascent and new.

The hallmark of human consciousness is our capability for creativity and innovation. It’s what is called genius and is marked by the ability to come up with original solutions and conclusions. But to access that genius we need to be able to step outside our familiar cognitive frameworks and resist the urge to fill in the blanks of unknowing with our preconceived notions and antiquated answers. We need to respect the unknown and the mystery and by extension what could and might be. Perhaps D.H Lawrence expressed it best in his 1922 book “The Fantasia of the Unconscious” when he wrote: “The supreme lesson of human consciousness is to learn how not to know.”

Forever Young

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.

May you grow up to be righteous
May you grow up to be true
May you always know the truth
And see the light surrounding you
May you always be courageous
Stand upright and be strong
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.

May your hands always be busy
May your feet always be swift
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
May your heart always be joyful
And may your song always be sung
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.
