Sexual Harassment?

We have a lot of news about sexual harassment and sexual predators, people – mostly well-known men – who are charged with misusing their positions of power or influence to harass others sexually.  Because it has been easier than usual to isolate these incidences and charge the people with these abuses, it has been very easy for many people to jump on the band-wagon to condemn and judge those who are singled-out.

The trouble is that the problem has a deeper core.  On the surface, we can easily imagine and see how these harassing incidences play out.  We can also understand how people can take advantage of others.  We have been doing this to each other for millennium after millennium.

But, in looking at this, I’m seeing a deeper issue and cause that is across the board – human related – rather than just being isolated incidences.  I’m seeing sexual harassment on the job as only a symptom of this deeper human-wide issue.

What I see is that the issue is not about sex and power.  It is about respect.  It is about whether we respect other people in other situations, in other circumstances of life, in other genders, other religions, other cultures, other races.  The question is put to us – do we respect others?

It’s easy to say, ‘well, respect has to be earned.’  No, it doesn’t.  No infant has ever been charged with ‘not deserving respect’ because they haven’t yet earned it.  No child has ever been labeled in school – “undeserving of anyone’s respect because they haven’t fulfilled anything deserving it”.  We don’t say at some point, ‘they’ve now grown up, and we can decide whether they’ve earned respect or not.’

As human beings, we don’t think about these things, but in the back of our minds, as family and friends of those infants and children, and without thinking, we hold some level of respect for them automatically.  That level is usually based on the amount of respect we generate in our own heart for human beings in general.

As souls, we are innately born into existence with respect from the Father/Mother God.  As souls, we recognize the reality of each of us having our own parcel of the Godhead within our own existence and spirit.  We are all sparks of the Infinite Consciousness of God, and from this Infinite Consciousness of God comes respect as well as the other Spirit Qualities of Love, Compassion, Mercy and others.  These qualities reside within us waiting for us to express them outwardly towards others.  By the very nature of our existence, we are children of God and innately are already deserving of respect, and called to give respect (as well as deserving of love, kindness, mercy, etc. – then called to give love, kindness, mercy, etc) by our very existence.  Yet, we don’t always automatically receive them from others or give them to others.

As human beings and spiritual beings, we are already deserving of Love, of mercy, of kindness, etc., … and of respect.  But, across the board of all human existence, we can see where we fall extremely short on giving that respect, or love or kindness, etc. to others.

When we actively work to respect another person – consciously – we treat that person so much better.  We work to not harm them.  We work to be kind, generous and merciful to them.  We work to forgive them, to support them and to offer them as much of the best of ourselves whenever they need it.

When we actively don’t respect someone, it becomes so easy for us to demonstrate that lack or small amount of respect through abuse of all kinds, harassment, insults, condemnation, judgmental criticism and every other means to demean them and look down on them.  It becomes easy for us to charge them with “no longer deserving respect’.  When we choose to not respect, it becomes easy to mistreat and abuse them.  When we have little or no respect for another person or group of people, it becomes easier for us to enslave and kill them.  (When we have little or no respect for others, subconsciously, we can have little or no respect for our self.)

We usually have in our individual minds and hearts that measuring stick which we hold up to them and say, ‘they don’t deserve respect because…’.  The reasons are vast and numerous.  They don’t deserve respect because of . . . their gender, their race, their religion, their lack of religion, their social status, their occupation, their age, their spiritual beliefs, their country of origin, their education, their location, their behaviors, their lack of behaviors, their affiliations, their past, their present, their future, their X, their Y, their Z and on and on.

Look across the board to all humans and look for some person or group who is giving respect to every human on the planet.  Not someone who is “saying” I give respect, but rather someone who is giving that respect without being asked.  Look far and wide, because when we are honest with ourselves, and respecting what honesty really is – and the level of honesty within ourselves – we will find all of ourselves wanting and failing at respecting all others.  Many women (and men) have been on the receiving end of sexual harassment. All human beings have been on the receiving end of being shown little or no respect.  All human beings have also been on the giving end of ‘little or no respect’ towards another individual or a group (and ourselves.)

For myself, I can think of only 1 man who, in His heart, mind, and soul respected each and every human alive – albeit all life.  And while He may have chastised and warned people against those who said one thing and did another, when it came to His end, He recognized the respect all deserve as children of God in His words of equality and humility -“Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.”  In essence, saying “Father, they are deserving of forgiveness.  They are deserving of mercy.  They are deserving of the Love You have for them – even that Love through Me.  They are deserving of consideration, of patience, of encouragement, of all You have to give, … and they are deserving of respect… even though they don’t know it or take it on for themselves to bestow it to others.”  He saw then, and He sees today, all of us as His equals deserving all that God gave Him and all God has to give.

Every effort we make to change our own ‘lack of respect’ into ‘respecting’ moves us one step closer to creating a better world for all people.  It could help if we remember His words, “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do”, and take them on for ourselves to bring into the world towards others and to ourselves.  In a world one day filled to the brim with our respect for one another, (and other qualities), then we will have Peace on Earth and Goodwill Towards All Men and Women (and all life).

Weather Predictions for 2017-2018 winter

Do you have a winter forecast for the US for 2017-18? A.K.

First and foremost, you’ll always find me writing that the meteorologists/scientists who are involved with predicting weather, are valid in their research, understanding, and predictions.  This is true for the short term – one season, as well as the long term – decades ahead.  The science is valid and worthy of serious attention and response with regard to Climate Change, Global Warming or whatever any of us calls it.  When examining these statements against any who oppose them, look more at the hearts of the individuals, and what anyone’s hearts cause to come out of one’s own mouth.  Weigh that which is within one’s heart and look for this one’s agenda and motivation.

***

The US has a variety of weather areas and each one will be somewhat different.  I’ll add also that the weather is like a stairway, each level is dependent on the previous level.  Each “stairstep” builds itself off the previous “stairstep”.

The Southwest: last year was warmer than average.  This year is going to continue this pattern.  Dec and January will be comparable to last years, with only slightly colder temperature.  February will see the 2 middle weeks being slightly colder than last year, but warmer than would be called “average”.

The Southeast:  I see a dryer winter for the S.E. for all 3 months.  I also see higher temperatures than would be considered winter temperatures.  This is for the 1st 2 months, then some colder weather in February, than in the Dec and Jan months.

The Northeast:  There’s no escaping the cold weather in the N.E. I see frozen temperatures – solid frozen.  I see an average amount of snow.  While Dec will come in weak, January will be windy and cold.  February will be frozen cold, but warmer temperatures will come in earlier in March than years past.

Midwest:  The M.W. is going to get hit with cold wind.  Lots of snow will cover the plains regions.  This is getting to be a new normal winter for this region.  In future years, there will be very few winters that are not like this.  Except for a slightly warmer 2018-2019 winter, all other winters for this decade will be COLD for this region.  Absolutely this will affect crop growth.

New England area:  December is when winter usually starts, but all meteorological predictions for November are already in and they predict cold in the Autumn month of November, also.  December will be much colder than November.  January will be a full-blown winter weather for the region.  February will be disastrous with serious winter weather related problems.  I see ice, wind and water problems.

Western US:  For the most  part, this region will not strongly experience serious winter weather.  January will be slightly colder, but still not a hazardous situation.    February will be slightly colder, but again, not serious and more closer to average.

Pacific Northwest:  This region will experience what could be called an average winter.  It will be slightly colder this year than last year, though in all 3 months.  However, Spring will come in earlier for this regions – close to the end of February.

Western Central states:  (Utah, Colorado, Wyoming and surrounding areas) Again, meteorologists have mentioned cold fronts coming in November, and I would add this will build in December.  There will be MUCH snow in the regions – for those who ski.  The cold fronts coming through will cause temperatures to dip into icy temperatures.  Much of the snow will turn to ice as the winter continues into January and the 1st 3 weeks of February.  Again, I’m seeing an earlier than normal spring with regard to temperatures.  The last week of Feb. will see temperatures rise, but there will be some late cold fronts in April and one in May, though not as bad as if it were Jan or Feb.

There will be a few anomalies this winter.
New Mexico will have several weeks of arctic temperatures in mid-January.
Eastern California will experience some warmer than average temperatures in the High Sierras overall.  The winter temperatures will hinder the fires, but not stop them completely.  A remnant of one fire believed to be burned out, will start up again in late November in the lower Sierras south of Yosemite, north of Kings Canyon Nat. Forest.
Tennessee will experience a pocket of warm weather with the Sun breaking through the clouds, in the midst of a cold front that would be happening all around them. It won’t last long.  (1st half of January)
Any other “anomalies” are so insignificant and small that they could be considered normal, and so I won’t bother with them here.

I’m ready for questions.

Las Vegas Horror

Spiritual law exists and is fulfilled. This is immutable, but it can vary as to the many methods it can be fulfilled. The spiritual law I’m referring to here in this example is – “The experiences we give others are the experiences we give ourselves.” This means that those experiences we put others through will be the experiences we put ourselves through (not always by choice). This is law, commonly called karma, but can also be known as the law of creation.

The vast majority of fulfilling events for this law are not manifested all in one particular lifetime, but rather in other lives we’ve lived or will live. In fact, looking only at one lifetime very few spiritual laws and principles appear to be true. Looking at the same laws and principles in the context of each soul living many lives, things start to make sense.

With the horror that happened in Las Vegas, we can see great suffering happen to many people. Even more people suffer from learning about this event afar – via TV or the News and the like. As sorrowful as it is to say this, these events too are fulfillment of law.

No, the people as they lived their lives this time around did not deserve this. No one ever deserves this. But, these things are bound by law to happen. And the soul from whom these things come – great woe, suffering and pain is theirs and sometimes for thousands of years both in physical form and outside of physical form.

The Bible tells us through various wordings, roughly, “everything we’ve ever done to harm or cause suffering, we must clean up.” Every i must be dotted and every t must be crossed. This means that every experience we’ve ever created for someone else to experience, either we will experience or we must heal and dissolve. Every ripple in time we create, will return to us. This is the fulfillment of the creation of experiences which exist within an Infinite Consciousness – of which all of us are a part.

Yet, this law is not in place to punish. This law has no judgement of any soul, even though we may project judgment into it. This law exists to help us raise our vibrations to the vibration of Infinite Love.

You see, these events like the killings in Las Vegas, can be healed, resolved, dissolved, and dismissed long before they ever happen. The purpose of all things is to raise our vibration to the level of Infinite Love. The simple truth is that we can raise our vibration to the levels at which these horrific events can be removed from having to manifest.

The how is as we’ve mentioned many times before – through those acts that raise the vibrations in the Earth – prayer, meditation, forgiveness, mercy, compassion, long-suffering, patience, charity, kindness, Love, and the other fruits of the spirit.

Any event, both horrific or wonderful, has its own vibration. The vibrations of prayer and meditation, love, kindness, forgiveness, mercy, patience, etc., are a higher vibration than these destructive and harmful events. Higher vibrations have a greater power than lower vibrations and can greatly impact energy that otherwise is destined to manifest as suffering – like the event in Las Vegas.

Our prayers, our meditations, our efforts to bring forth the fruits of the spirit from within our own hearts and onward into the Earth, are the ways to heal souls and heal the energy of our past created experiences which are still waiting to find the appropriate channel to manifest.

These acts can be healed through prayer and meditation – for humankind. But, without prayer and meditation, these acts will manifest. As I’ve said before, the more prayer, the more healing. The more meditation, kindness, forgiveness, mercy, compassion, understanding, patience, support, charity, long-suffering, cooperation, tolerance and love – the more healing.

If we look for proof that this law is possible and in effect, we will find none that is suitable. No physical proof exists of a non-physical reality. The physical reality is the reflection of the non-physical reality. No reflection ever offers any substance of that which it reflects. No part of a reflection in any mirror has physical substance of that which is reflected.

Yet, we live each day with the choice to pray, to love, to show mercy and compassion towards others for their own sake, knowing inside our very soul that these things are worthwhile, and are needed in a weary, weary world in order to bring that world out of the manifestation of those destructive acts which we created lifetimes ago, yet haven’t yet healed.

We can heal events like the one in Las Vegas, before it happens.  We have already done so much healing.  Events destined to manifest, have been dissolved and healed.  We need only keep on keeping on with this work.

Question about the Economy

Would you please elaborate more on the future economy of the U.S. I have followed you for several years, and I recall that you mentioned we should be prepared for what was coming a little beyond 2018 . I took your comments to mean food shortages and difficult times ahead. Do you still see this happening? Tee M.

First, I’d like to say, there is good and bad in all circumstances.  With that said, there are many factors which will lead to times which are “more difficult than current life circumstances”, – I’m seeing in the next 10-20 years.  Also, difficulties will not hit everywhere equally.  As of this date, September 20, 2017, we’ve already seen hurricanes cause hundreds of billions of dollars of destruction for the Caribbean and the U.S.  We’re also see massive fires destroying so much in the western states.  Other events like this will also contribute to the overall economic problems.  There will be more events like these destructive events which will impact the economy.  But, many societal factors will contribute to the overall problems, as well.

Countries like Venezuela and others that have unstable societies are already experiencing economic problems as we can see via news reports.  Mexico has had a devastating earthquake, and this too, will affect not just Mexico but indirectly, the US and other Latin American countries.

Unfortunately, there are few economic remedies being put forth or that will be put in place to help in this country.   Other nations will have varying success in dealing with their own.  Each of these disasters and those yet to happen over the next 9 years, (what I’ve categorized as “the 3rd of 3 events” – which is a conglomerate of many events linked together) will contribute to the economic difficulties.

What I see psychically for the U.S. is a slow decline in the overall economy.  As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, it will begin in the summer of 2017, progress into 2018, and continue downward into 2019 and 2020.  We’ve seen it begin with the hurricanes this summer.  Fuel prices have begun to rise, which in turn gives rise to commodity/food prices due to increasing delivery costs.  Because recovery is slow, the destruction in the US will impact many levels of the economy, including production, tourism, industry, and many other areas.  Remember, millions of people who have lost their homes and cars won’t have disposable income for quite some time which would otherwise help the economy. The logistics of recovery will be extremely slow to unfold.  As demand for recovery resources increases, (materials for rebuilding) this will drive prices up.

And this that I describe is only part of problems that arise over the next 3 years.

The Good News

The good news for 2017 is that at the community level, people are able to connect and help each other.  Local economies can recover in practical ways when people act to figure out how to work together, to make do and to help one’s neighbor.

More good news is that as people pray and meditate, the level of energy destined to manifest destructively lessens because much of the energy is either transformed, dissolved, or blended with higher healing/spiritual energy.  As I’ve mentioned, higher energy being prayed forth and meditated into existence affects destructive/lower energy like tuning forks that raise the vibration levels of the lower energies.  This means there is less manifested destruction.

This is the purpose of prayer and meditation.  Even if we don’t see or realize the change and transformation happening around us.

Specifically for 2018, worldwide, I see the economy taking strong hits throughout the year.  This will leave the economy weaker by the end of the 2018 year.  I see this in general, with specific events happening that will bring about this general state.

Specifically, I see man-made influences being half of the influences bringing this to happen.  I’ve seen an event in May, 2018, that we can pray for, but will be a major event.  It will be a strong enough event to overwhelm the White House.

The events will be half physical Earth disasters and half actions which will lead to unintended economic problems.  25% of this will be the first 6 months and 75% of this the last 6 months.

I see some chance that the current Health Care program will stay in place, but I see efforts yet to happen in 2018 to try to end the ACA, once again.

Climate change is having an affect on tectonic plates via the fluctuation of pressure and weight placed upon these plates.  This can cause more earthquakes and/or volcanoes in the spring and summer of 2018.  Prayers can help diminish these, but not remove them completely.

We have a lot of help at higher spiritual/energy levels, but humanity must take the lead on changing both within ourselves as well as the world outside us.

The alternative energy companies will quietly and slowly continue to create a presence in our society and the world.  While loud arguments abound about fossil fuels, the alternative energies will be slowly increasing.  [As I’ve mentioned to people before, from the higher realms, fossil fuels were meant to provide 10% of the total energy on this planet, because of what they can offer, but we’ve gotten off balance.]

There are some parts of the economy which will continue to crank along.  2018 will not be a depression, but will be a rocky road leading to what I see as being rockier roads.

“Sell All You Have and Give it to the Poor…..”

“Sell all you have and give to the poor, then come and follow me.” Mark 10:21

This is a well known story in the New Testament. Most people, if not almost all people, automatically think Christ is talking about money and possessions. After all, the story says Christ was talking to a rich man. The rich man then walked away sad, because he had so much.

I haven’t found any Bible version that says, the rich man was a man with lots of “money”. We assume the story refers to money and material possessions, because the term “rich” usually means this, but take another look at this in relation to the whole of Christ’s message.  Perhaps “rich” means something else.

Christ worked with people all the time. He traveled with them, ate with them, slept with them, and all of these things took money to pay for and required ownership of material things. Food cost money back then like it does today. Clothing cost money back then, too. Sandals, water, wine, all the needs of the body cost money back then.  His followers owned homes, boats, nets, tools of their trades.

So, was Christ saying these words to the ‘rich’ man, and all people with money and possessions? Was Christ saying sell all your possessions and give all your money to the poor?  Was He saying sell your possessions to someone, so that particular someone else will have more possessions?  This is close to what we’ve come to understand from reading this in the New Testament.   Yet, is this all it was?  Money is a tool or resource that can be used wisely. Possessions are useful tools also, to accomplish tasks.  Houses are needed to live inside.  The gist of what Christ said in looking at Christ’s entire message of His life is “Give what you have to those that do not have.”

Looking at this story in relation to all stories of Jesus, perhaps Christ was referring to something greater with more meaning.

What is it that God and Christ gives to us abundantly and without hesitation? What is it that God and Christ bestows upon us infinitely, even though we don’t accept it infinitely?  It  is these things that we have been given and possess in varying degrees of abundance.

It is the Fruits of the Spirit – loving kindness, patience, mercy, forgiveness, compassion, long-suffering, charity and more. This alone does God give us without hesitation, and without limit – even to the point that He could fill us up to overflowing were we open as much.

It is us who then are called to let go of, giving out these qualities, from within ourselves, pouring it forth to give to others that which we have within us. In this light, the message to the rich man becomes something else altogether if he was rich in the presence of Spirit and Love within his heart.

The message to us then becomes “take all the loving-kindness that you have within you, release it from holding on to it, and give it to the poor – those who appear to have no loving-kindness. Take all the mercy that you have within you, and are holding onto, and give to those who demonstrate having no mercy. Take all the patience and forgiveness that you have taken  possession of inside you and give to those who are poor of patience and forgiveness inside them. Take the compassion, the support, the charity, the fruits of the Spirit that you claim as your own bestowed upon you – and give to those who seem to possess none of these qualities.”

This is a different message altogether. To give away our money can be a superficial message referring to that which is external of our Self.  It is appropriate at times, yet, it can also be thought that giving money will buy our way into heaven, even though there’s no such thing as “buying our way into heaven”.

Christ’s message is always more about what is WITHIN us.  With understanding Christ’s life and message as a whole, we can begin to understand this story in a deeper way. His message has always been “Love one another as I have loved you.” And He repeats this to the “rich man”. Take the love I give to you and that you now have within you, and give this love to those who do not have love.

We can now understand why the rich man walked away, also. Because, just how easy is it to love those who don’t love? How easy is it to show compassion to someone who has very little compassion inside him/her? How easy is it to show kindness, patience, mercy or charity to someone who has no mercy inside them, or kindness, or patience or charity inside them?  It isn’t easy at all.

In our world today, we have many that we see as having no compassion, no mercy, no kindness, no patience, and we are called by Christ to “Don’t hold on to all the mercy, kindness, patience, etc that we have been given and is now within us, but rather give it all to those who have none inside them.”

We can understand how such a daunting task today could cause us to turn and walk away.  How can we show mercy and forgiveness to someone who is showing no mercy and no forgiveness? How can we show patience and kindness to someone who is showing no patience and no kindness?  How can we show these qualities to someone who we recently have shown contempt towards or slandered.

Again, there is only one way that we can do this, because “for man, this is impossible. But, with God, all things are possible.”

With God, we can release the loving-kindness within us sending it to someone who has no loving-kindness within them. With God, we can let flow the compassion, understanding and patience to someone who has no compassion or understanding or patience. With God, we can forgive and show mercy to someone who has no forgiveness or mercy within them.

With God, we can patiently and mercifully love those we never thought we could patiently and mercifully love – others, as well as our self. With God.

Hurricane Harvey and Facebook

For anyone interested, I’m also on Facebook.  Type my name and my postings will come up.  All my postings are public, so there should be no difficulty in reading them.  I don’t do predictions on FB.

I mention FB because during hurricane Harvey, I haven’t posted here, but rather on FB.  There’s massive destruction as people have seen.  I know many people who have been hit hard and many who are helping those who are suffering the worst of the destruction.

Unfortunately, there are some that are using this as a criminal opportunity.  Looting and scamming is happening.

Please, continue to pray for all the people involved and connected to this event.  All.  If you feel you want to help, help in whatever way you feel you can.  Don’t worry about any that are adding more problems to the situation.  As Edgar Cayce said in one of his readings, “Do what is in your lap, to do.”  As Christ told Peter, “You don’t concern yourself with what others do or don’t do  I’ll concern myself with them.  You follow me.”

May God be with everyone during this time.
