Raising Vitality, Fulfillment, and Power

You, as a consciousness, seek to know yourself.

There is a portion of All-That-Is

that is aware of itself as you

...focused within your existence,

whose energy is directed within you

and to whom you can call for help

when necessary.

Consciousness, seeking to know itself,

therefore, knows you.

And to some extent or other

you become aware of your self

as a distinct and individual portion of

All-That-Is.

You may draw upon this overall energy.

The extent of your realization of this fact

mirrors the extent of your own

vitality, fulfillment, and power.

Seth ~ Session 311

Nixon and Trump

During the four years that Donald Trump occupied the Oval Office, over his left shoulder above the Resolute Desk was framed a letter from Pat Nixon, President Nixon's wife. The letter said, “Dear Donald, I hope someday that you run for President. I know if you do that you will be a great President.”

After President Richard Nixon left office, unbeknownst to most, he and Donald Trump became very close friends. Nixon schooled Trump the businessman in depth on exactly how the Washington machine works, telling him everything he might expect should he ever seek the office of the President. President Trump was very aware of exactly how cooked Washington D.C. is, how fixed it is. He was well aware that someone can't just come in there with good intentions and fix Washington D.C. There have to be other solutions to come to bear. It was never about coming in and fixing it. It has always been about just shutting it down and moving power away from the evil corrupt swamp that it has become.

Washington D.C. is currently a spectacle locked behind chain-linked fences for all the world to see it for what it is. It is a virtual prison for the treasonous criminals that run the government and will never be reoccupied when a legitimate government is restored to power. Parts of it that are not ultimately bulldozed will become museum exhibits for future tourists to be reminded of the dangers of tyranny to a republic of free people. A new Capitol will be established in a different part of the country in a revitalization of the Constitutional authority of the people, by the people, and for the people. Pat Nixon shall be proven historically prescient and the honor of Richard Nixon shall be restored.

Being a High Performance Person

 After a certain point in one's life, a person can reasonably ask themselves whether they are winning the game of life, or not. Then once one has gotten beyond the productive years, it should be self-evident whether one is able to sum up their life as that of a winner or that of a loser. What makes one person a winner? And another a loser? What actions can one take to up their game and perform at higher levels?

I see myself as a winner, and always have. Despite not being ridiculously wealthy, I still consider that I have won the game of life. I am happy and have more than enough of what I need and want, and I did it my way. But... nobody may have failed at more endeavors than I have if life. If I sat down to record my journey, I could write more about the things that didn't work out than about those that did – because I have tried a lot of things – more than most – and continue to do so.

Failure is just testing, after all. I didn't really fail at anything. Perhaps I came up short, and perhaps I have some regrets, but by and large, I wouldn't do it any other way if I had it to do over. Making mistakes is okay. That's how we learn. If you don't make mistakes, you aren't going to get better. Get comfortable with making mistakes. If we pay attention, we won't make the same mistakes a second time. That is applied wisdom.

Ever been told you can do anything you want to do? You can't. I never told my kids that. There are always limitations as well as hurdles, and life isn't always fair. It is we who place the greatest limitations on ourselves. And every inequity can be overcome.

You can be successful at anything you have a passion for. Doing what you love eliminates most of the challenge. But most people don't follow their dreams. They settle for less. Their lives are a sad saga of living compromise to compromise. Your dreams will never be achieved unless you follow them. Maybe I am a winner because I never stopped dreaming and never ceased chasing my dreams.

You will never achieve anything greater than your highest aspiration. If you want a million bucks, you won't make a million and a half. If you want ten million, you won't make a hundred million. You cannot exceed your aspirations. You have got to dream of winning if you hope to win at the game of life.

Then you have to do what you often don't want to do, but you know you got to do it to get to where you want to be. It is work to be a high performance person. Lots of work. You have to be disciplined and you have to be focused.

How do you get disciplined and more focused? Study people who are successful. Study the people who are winning. Two-thirds of all Fortune 500 CEO's have one thing in common: a military background. Two-thirds of those two-thirds have something else in common: martial arts. What do you learn in the military and martial arts? Discipline. Focus.

A lot of people believe they don't deserve to succeed. Believe in yourself. Practice being successful today and every day. Feel successful. Do what successful people do. Wear suits that you cannot afford. Eat the most expensive item on the menu. Drive a better car than you can afford.

Maybe you need to find new friends. Hang out with winners. Billionaire Dan Pena said, “Show me your friends and I'll show you your future.” Maybe it is time to lose your loser friends. If you are losing at the game of life, you are going to have to make some tough lifestyle changes somewhere. All successful people have to sacrifice somewhere along the road to winning.

Begin today. Be a winner. People procrastinate because they are unsure. Just do it. We overanalyze because we're unsure. The truth of the matter, however, is that we're not so much worried as to whether something will work or not - we're worried that we may be embarrassed. Quit worrying. Time is expensive. Don't waste it.

Full Wolf Moon 2021

The first full moon of the year rises tonight. The Full Wolf Moon is a powerful time for both releasing what no longer serves us, and harnessing powerful lunar energy. Traditional peoples lived by the cycles of the moon. It is still important to learn to live in harmony with the Moon, especially when it is at the peak of its activity, and it is especially beneficial to exercise intellectual activity during this time. It is also an opportune time to go inward and release what one has been holding back.

The full moon of January is the most ferocious of the year and was one of the least welcome of all the full moons to Native Americans and early European colonists. It arrives during the harshest, most unforgiving time of the year. They called it the Full Wolf Moon because of the packs of hungry wolves that often patrolled just outside the protection of their villages.

I was born under the sign of Gemini. For my sign this is a time when the events of the world encourage me to share some of my more esoteric views through my writing. I know that not everyone accepts my worldview or opinions, but the lunar energy during this time serves to strengthen my powers of communication at this time. It is a good time to journal my thoughts such as I do in this blog and express those ideas that I have been holding back from sharing with others through writing. There is much that I sense approaching that would cause the sheep to tremble under the light of the moon. A wolf must be extra vigilant with the shadow he casts in these anxious times, attempting not to rouse an unnecessary panic among the befuddled sheep.

The Silence Between the Observer and the Observed

At the moment of tremendous joy,

there is no observer—

the heavens are filled,

you are part of it,

there is bliss.

This state takes place
when the mind sees

the falseness of attempts

to become, to achieve.

There is a state of timelessness

only when there is no observer.

~J. Krishnamurti

Bombay 1961, Talk 8


...the very attention you give to a problem

is the energy that solves that problem.
When you give your complete attention–

I mean with everything in you–
there is no observer at all.

There is only the state of attention

which is total energy,
and that total energy

is the highest form of intelligence.

Naturally that state of mind

must be completely silent

and that silence, that stillness,
comes when there is total attention,

not disciplined stillness.
That total silence in which there is

neither the observer nor the thing observed
is the highest form of a religious mind.

But what takes place in that state
cannot be put into words

because what is said in words

is not the fact.
To find out for yourself

you have to go through it.

~ J. Krishnamurti

Theta Network Explained

Theta Network is a blockchain-based, content-delivery platform that enables high-bandwidth content delivery using decentralized technology. Theta Labs is the blockchain arm of San Jose, CA-based IPTV company Sliver.tv. The platform is focused on bringing esports streaming onto the blockchain, enabling microtransactions in a secure environment. It believes it has the bandwidth for worldwide scalability and adoption with these key pieces.

Most blockchain projects focus on data storage, but video streaming platforms like Netflix and Hulu need more than just drive space. Transfer speeds and bandwidth are key for these services, as 140 million people simultaneously accessing thousands of files can burden a server. Video quality of 4K can take up to 48 Mbps, and high-quality VR resolutions of 16K can take up to 768 Mbps. Needless to say, we’re going to need a better internet.

Decentralization is based on blockchain technology and allows you to cope with the high demand for transactions for this purpose. The network is distributed from users who provide transactions to ensure quality and a large number of live viewers (peer-to-peer networks). These users are nodes of decentralized THETA network.

Theta uses two tokens: THETA and TFUEL, which function as a staking and utility token, respectively. THETA was sold in a private token sale, while TFUEL is generated by staking THETA. Theta was designed to allow users to publish high-quality videos; it removes intermediaries who charge expensive fees for placing video content on their sites; it establishes transparent interaction between creators advertisers and creators of video materials.

Today's current internet environment has two problems. The current system for publishing video content is centralized. Due to this, intermediaries can influence authors and set unfavorable conditions for their cooperation. The second issue is a slow delivery of content from the manufacturer to consumers. In future, most users will start using virtual reality technology. It will multiply the load on the network, and the current centralized system will not be able to function correctly.

The solution is when an author uploads his video to the platform and sets the rules of the use in settings; users watch the published material, and provide free power of their PCs; due to new capacities, content is transferred to other participants; all users who support the network are rewarded with Theta tokens. This model of operation eliminates intermediaries and forms a decentralized network with a high speed of streaming video distribution.

‘Theta innovation is set to disrupt today’s online video industry much in the same way that the YouTube platform did to traditional video back in 2005. One of our biggest challenges had been the high costs of delivering video to various parts of the world, and this problem is only getting bigger with HD, 4K and higher quality video streams. I am excited to be part of the next evolution of the streaming space, helping Theta create a decentralized peer-to-peer network that can offer improved video delivery at lower costs.’ ~ Steve Chen, Co-Founder of YouTube

The Theta Token is based on the Ethereum blockchain and are earned via a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) algorithm. Tokens are staked to become validator nodes and secure the network. Relayers earn TFUEL for lending bandwidth to video streams, and THETA hodlers earn it simply for staking. The THETA coin was built according to the ERC20 standard, and supports all wallets supporting Ethereum by design. Theta Token uses Ethereum smart contracts to provide live, peer-to-peer, decentralized, secure, and robust betting platforms for users. The currency can be a reward for providing transactions (caching video streams). This can also be achieved by creating or viewing content. You can then use THETAs to donate, unlock premium content, pay for ad campaigns, or resell.

Theta is a quickly rising star in the blockchain sector. If it can leverage its Sony investment to gain access to the PlayStation Network and Sony’s expansive streaming audience, it’ll be well on its way to beating even BitCoin.

And a Pair of Ears Listened

 

Slow down, young reader, 

For you are still both young and old
in the ages of your reading.

Slow down at the beginning of a book;
Slow down and listen to the first page.
There is no rush.

Books don't rush; they wait.
Sometimes they wait for centuries,
Anticipating the arrival of the right reader.

So breathe slowly and deeply as you attend to the page;
Deep breathing helps deep listening;
Deep listening helps deep hearing.

Make friends with your book if you can.

Books like to be listened to with both eyes and ears.
But human ears work slower than human eyes;
And human ears need space to listen into.

Look at the page:
There are words and there is white space.
Your mind will add the pictures.

But look how much more white space there is than words.
Most of the page is space.
The space is there for long ears to listen into.

There's a lot of it.
The words are completely surrounded.

But it is not empty space.
The words vibrate quietly
And fill the space with unseen sound.

Ears must pay attention.
Close listening is needed.

What sounds are the words making today?
Listen to the space around them.
Is there a breeze?
Is there a breeze blowing gently
through the leafy woodlands
of words and whispers?
Is there bird song?
Is there a secret rustling in the undergrowth?
Sometimes there is.
And sometimes it can be heard.

How good is your earsight?
Do you know?

Quite a lot of the words on the page are invisible.
Often it is the invisible words which make the most noise.
Only ears can hear them;
Only ears which take the trouble to slow down and listen closely.

There is no rush.
Books don't rush; they wait.

Conspiracy Obverse

Things are not what they appear to be. Many things are the other way around.

What appears to be the reverse may actually be the obverse.

A conspiracy theory may be 100% conspiracy fact. Conspiracy Obverse.

Establishment news reports and establishment histories may be 100% deliberate disinformation. 70-80% would not be unusual. If so, they are information conspiracies.

There is a basal level of intellectual response to élite-broadcast current affairs narratives. Agendas of perception can be tuned by oft-repeated false-world narratives.

A higher level of response is also possible. This response is spiritual.

Planet Earth is a mystery school, but it is a mystery school for only one species.

Of all the species living on the planet only one doesn't know who it is. The plants, the animals and the waters are its teachers.

In the midst of a carefully-constructed matrix of illusions that species is now awakening.

The trick is to wake up, become aware of the matrix, stay strong, stay free and watch the manufactured illusions crumble and fall apart.

This is now happening.

A language older than the planet itself has a word for the global mystery: माया

That language was originally brought to the planet by an old race of humans who certainly did know who they were.

From Sanskrit the word of mystery can be written: māyā́

Are We Living in a Simulation?

Who Are We Really?

We seem to be characters living inside

a slash-and-burn computer game

which gets crazier each day it is turned on.

Has the entity once known as God

forgotten to update our surrounding software?

The device you are reading this on looks real, doesn't it? Tap it with your finger. It feels real too. Kiss the screen lightly with your lips. Yes, it's really there. Lips never lie, do they?

If you think like this, you probably also think that you are living in a base reality. Look around you. You seem to live in a real place which actually exists in physical reality and occupies a demonstrable physical location which can be visited by others, looked at through binoculars and trodden underfoot, sometimes with a crunchy noise.

Other people live in this base reality with you. Some of these you think of as human people. You can see them and hear their vehicle noise and catch diseases from them. If you want to, you can communicate with them without using any device other than your vocal cords. A physical mixture of gases around you carries sound waves which makes this possible.

These gases include nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide, water vapor, argon, xenon, neon and krypton. Each of these gases can be isolated from all the others. Any one of them can be put in a container on its own, in solid, liquid or gaseous form. That container can then be plonked down in front of you next to your device. You notice that the container is there. A little while ago you also noticed that it wasn't there (yet).

We live in a most convincing base reality. It's actually there. We actually experience it ourselves.

Most Westerners thought like this until 1999. Then they went to see a film called The Matrix. This got some of them them thinking in a different way.

Then, in 2001, Nick Bostrom of Oxford University privately circulated the first draft of a paper. It asked a question: Do we live in a simulation?

In other words, rather than living in a physical base reality, could we, and all that we experience as physical, actually be constructed simulations created inside somebody else's computer?

Might we be virtual beings who have been made capable of thought and consciousness? Or, during the years-long ongoing processes of the simulation, might we have evolved into a conscious state from an original unconscious state because of the creative way the simulation was set up?

Such a simulation would take a very big computer and someone who was very good indeed at writing creative computer code.

Whose computer might it be? One possibility is that it belongs to the entity once known as God.

And where might the big computer be kept? Perhaps it is kept everywhere. The totality of what we think of as the physical universe might actually be a huge quantum computer.

And what might we call the clever bunch of computer code which produces the simulacrum in which we live and move and have our being? One possibility is that we call it AI (the All-Seeing I), 'artificial intelligence'.

So then, what is the likelihood? Are we virtual beings living in a simulation or not? It depends on who you believe. According to the academic specialists working on the thought-flows which followed the original publication of The Simulation Argument, things have changed since 2003. These days the chances are reckoned to be about fifty-fifty. That is to say it is as likely as not that we are virtual beings living in a simulacrum.

This leaves a final question. If, one day, looking around inside our simulated existence we happen to find evidence of it being a simulation - we notice a fundamental glitch in the fabric of the illusion - something really crazy and mad - or something getting crazier and madder and more unbelievable each time we look - how the hell do we get out of the simulation before it's too late?

That's easy. We just go to sleep and choose not to wake up again. We return to where we belong and to where we are actually real and always have been. Our time in the mystery school on Planet Earth will be over.

Alternatively, we go to sleep and wake up somewhere else. But there's another option. We get it, choose to wake up inside the simulation again and put the news around.

If we do this, and the AI notices, which it certainly would do if it is the All-Seeing I, would the AI then (1) Delete us? (2) Limit the visibility of our influence inside the simulation? Or, (3) Have a good laugh and invite us to join it in creating something new, something more and something better?

There's another perspective. We have considered the possibility that if we are actually characters living inside someone else's computer-generated simulation, one day one or several of us might notice 'concrete' evidence of this fact. Looking around inside our simulated existence we might notice a fundamental glitch in the fabric of the illusion in which we are immersed. It might be something totally mad-looking; something absolutely ridiculous, impossible and unique which doesn't at all fit with our established understanding of the world we perceive ourselves to be living in. What then?

We might just call the glitch-event supernatural. Perhaps it's a miracle. If the glitch in the fabric of the simulacrum repeats itself, we might start thinking of it in terms of a revelation about the existence of other powers, other realities, other worlds. If the mad-looking stuff continues episodically, and enough people see it or hear about it, the anomalies might be turned into the bases of a religion. They could be collected, recorded in writing, discussed, argued about, and condensed into scriptures. What might happen then can only be imagined.

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 clichéd 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.
