The Rosetta Stone of Consciousness

As surprising or confusing it might seem, Jesus’ words, “Love God above all else, and love your neighbor as yourself” are the key to understanding existence of EVERYTHING. It’s not readily understood at a human level, but it is the key that unlocks all the mysteries of existence within this Universe and all Universes. I say this not because I think it is true, but because the very life within these words, rings out this meaning and this awareness. The very vibrations of these words carry forth the effort and desire to unlock not just people’s hearts but their minds to know that which awaits us in our understanding.

What the human race is missing so far, is that these are not just pretty words. Rather practicing these words opens up the step by step approach to understanding and putting together the puzzle that is our self and our relationship to God and the Universe of Universes. We are putting together the puzzle of all things, and these words are the blueprint for finding the pieces, then learning how they fit together. They are not just spelling out how to live in this Earth, nor just how to live in the physical universe. But, they spell out how to discover and open the non-physical dimensions of existence.

These words are the Rosetta Stone of Consciousness and of understanding the realms of existence/consciousness. These words are the primer to help us unlock piece by piece – awareness of all creation – helping us climb the stairs one step at a time to that place where we understand and integrate, and live from this awareness.

With each step on the stairs of understanding, as we practice these words and all teachings that emanate from these words, we gain another piece of the puzzle. That which we learn and practice becomes part of us – part of our flesh and blood in the physical world, and the spiritual world.

This is true, because we exist in both worlds at the same time, whether we are aware of it or not. (Side note: We are spirit beings, for all times, whether we are aware of it or not. We are physical beings only while we inhabit (and are fused to) this body.)

Meditate on His words.

On Our Death Bed

With Covid-19 causing many deaths in the US and everywhere on the planet Earth, this blog title is sadly realistic for people dying “before their time” or what we would think would otherwise be before their time. Who among us is ready for when our last moments on Earth arrive?

None of us or perhaps a very extreme few of all the billions of people on Earth.

However, we don’t consciously choose which moments are our last moments. It is a sober experience to consider. This experience is seemingly forced upon each and every person that gets Covid-19 – to consider the outcome – recovering or dying. Along with this experience forced upon us, is what we assume is part of the experience – looking back on our life –

“…when there’s no more lying
about living or dying,
when there’s nothing left,
but life or death.”

Usually we don’t look back at our life, unless we’re forced to … like some people who are in the hospital, either recovering or dying from Covid-19, but alone and separated from family, …

In a person’s final moments, I don’t think anyone on their deathbed thinks…

I wish I’d spent more time at the office.
or
I wish I’d watched more television.
or
My regret is that I didn’t get better at video games.

Many are dying from Covid-19, right now, … and dying from many other things. As I mention above, some are dying alone, with no family around them – away from those who love them or they love.

Are their last questions to themselves:
“Should I have shown more disrespect to others in my life?”

Who among us dying in a hospital bed might think:

“I wish I would have had even greater resentments and bitterness towards people in my life?” as they lie in the hospital bed hoping they could see their loved ones.

or “I wish I could have placed more guilt and shame on people with whom I’ve been in contact.” while their family and friends are somewhere else.

In the same way, who among us would consider,

“I wish I could have blamed more people for problems in my life and problems in the world”,

or

“I wish I could have been even more condemning and judgemental of people.”

Sadly, I can’t help but think that there are many of us human beings who are walking around in the world, making the choice to be bitter, to blame, to condemn, placing shame and guilt, choosing these attitudes in our lives, not dying from anything at this time in our lives, and not looking back on ourselves and the life we live.

But, if we think about it, at anytime we can consider other questions to look at how we’ve lived our lives so far – questions usually kept back to only ask ourselves on our death bed:

Did I ever love anyone?
… so that they could know what being loved is?

Did I ever forgive anyone?
… anyone who was not a friend or family or who I knew?

Was I ever kind to anyone?

Did I ever show mercy to anyone?
… anyone who was not someone I liked or loved or even knew?

Did I ever help comfort anyone suffering or in pain?

Was I ever patient with anyone who desperately needed it?

Did I ever experience suffering for the sake of the lives of any others?

Did I ever feel compassion towards anyone?

Was I ever unselfish with what I had, in any way with anyone?

Did I ever give of myself for someone else’s life?

Was I ever humble among others who had less?


In some ways, we can indeed say “Yes” to many of these questions, which, obviously, in our last moments of life, will be the more important questions to us. But yet, we don’t have to wait. We can ask ourselves these questions at anytime – like when we wake up each morning, or when we go to bed each night.

Invitation for 2021 topics

I am inviting 2021 questions and topics for psychic examination for the annual “Psychic Predictions for 2021” posting. You may use the comments section for this post to add your questions or request a topic to examine.

2021 will be a year where humans will face either having to dig in to face the things coming forth, or hide in the closet of our own mind and soul. For Human freewill, both choices will be made by one or the other. The fear of failure is a factor, but failure only comes to those who never try. If we find ourselves using the words, “I can’t”, then change the word “can’t” to “won’t” and we have the real sentiment underlying the statement. Because, it is true, if we’re not willing, we will accomplish nothing – if we are willing, we will accomplish all we can think … because if we’re willing, God gets on board to help.

In 2021, we are called by the Universe of All Things to “try”, regardless of whether we reach that which we think we’re supposed to. Believe it or not, in God’s Heart for us, reaching for the stars is worthwhile, and if we only make it 1 foot off the ground, we’ve progressed.

Finally, I send this message to all: Be aware, that we already are “enough” of “this”, “that” and “everything” … to be loved. We are already good enough, smart enough, accomplished enough, successful enough, everything enough …. to be loved. The vast majority of all humans do almost all things in order to be loved more … without realizing this. We all want to be loved, and this motivates us unconsciously. And we can become aware that – We are already enough…. to be loved.

God bless us, Everyone.

The Good Within the Bad; the Bad Within the Good

The Edgar Cayce Readings tell us “There is good in the worst of us. There is bad in the best of us.” Who else may have said this? Martin Luther King, Robert Lewis Stephenson, Bishop Fulton Sheen, Abraham Lincoln, Thornton Wilder, Carl Jung, and many more.  It is consistent throughout time and recognized for its forthright honesty about we human beings.

Each of these sources are talking about human beings. They are reminding us that everyone has both the light and dark within us, both selfishness and unselfishness within us, both the light and the shadow, both the left and the right, the forward and the backward, the up and the down, etc within us. (And as I have said, “There is a liberal within the consciousness of every conservative, and a conservative within the consciousness of every liberal.”  “There is a Republican within every Democrat and a Democrat within every Republican.”)  And if we’ve come across this saying and taken it to heart, we’ve pretty much only considered it relevant to human beings.

But, it can be considered in other ways, too. For example – the choices we make as human beings.

When we make choices of how to proceed, we weigh both the good and the bad.  When we finally make the decision/choice, neither the good nor the bad disappear or are dissolved from existence.  Neither are both the good and the bad turned into both good or both bad.

There is no choice that is made that is 100% “good”, and no choice that is 100% “bad”.  (Notice the quotation marks.)  This is because we are individuals deciding only for ourselves (or our group) as to what is a good decision and what is a bad decision.  What is a good decision for our self, can absolutely be a bad decision for someone else.  That which can bring good results for our self from our choices can absolutely bring bad results for others.  In other words, the circumstances of our own personal choices and decisions are good for some people in our lives and bad for other people in our lives.

This is the world we so often see when we look around on this planet.  We many times see everything in our lives and in this world as black and white, good or bad, right or wrong, but rarely ever as both, or the gray area in between.  Oh, sure, we know life is a mixture of gray areas.  But, when push comes to shove, we back ourselves and others into the corners of black/white.

Right now, you may think I’m writing about race issues, but I’m not.  However, since you’re right and I’m wrong, then I must be writing about race issues.  Except that I’m writing about that which is within the one individual, so this must mean that I’m writing about the issue that within every white person is a black person, and within every black person is a white person (especially if we see the other person as a stereotype, as well as if we see the other person as a cosmos unto themselves.)

Or I’m writing about all of the above – how we see the world – and how we aren’t yet seeing our self.

In our political arenas, in general, many of us are seeing things as black and white, liberal and conservative, Democrat and Republican, as well as vice versa.  Therein lies our problem, that if we only see these factors, we’re only choosing to see the black/white side of our choices.  And this carries over into our everyday lives – with our relationships, with our attitudes, and with our religious/spiritual beliefs – and whether we choose violence or nonviolence, abuse on not, insults or not, disrespect or not, and compassion or not, patience or not, kindness or not – eventually with whether we choose to Love God above all else, and Love our neighbor as ourselves…. or not.

Yet, it is still possible to step back from black/white, right/left, them/us thinking, feeling, and responding.

We all value different things in life.  We come by these values through our experiences and learning.  We find what we like and dislike – what we hold more important – through living life.  Since everyone lives a different life than everyone else, we’re going to learn, experience and come to value different things in these different lives.

With our values, we can sometimes come to believe that our own values are the only values worth …. valuing.  Without realizing it, we are then saying our experiences are the only experiences one can gain from – our learning is the only education worth learning.

Of course, we would never consciously acknowledge this lopsided thinking, but when we choose black/white thinking, like we generally are tending to do right now in our world, this is what we are inferring.  Our views are the right views, our values are the real values, our education is the correct education, our values are the only values worth having.

In actuality, for the most part, none of us are this 2 dimensional in our thinking.  We do have room in our paradigm for people who value different experiences and learning.  But, ultimately, we’ve taken up the habit of judging others because of the reason that they have different thoughts, beliefs, and values.

God alone knows what all is in a person’s heart – that which we think, which we fully believe and that which we value.  We human beings don’t, even during those times that we solidly think we do.  But, we are almost automatic in our judgement of another person for what we think, believe and value.  In addition, we can compare that which we individually value to what God values, and the one thing that’s true in this comparison is how monumentally we fall short compared to what God values.

It is in the judging that we get off track.  It is in the criticism of others’ differences that we start missing the greater learning.  It is in the diminishing of others’ experiences and of what others have learned through living life.  It is in not recognizing that others value different things in life based upon their soul’s different journey.  This shortcoming becomes a form of disrespect of the soul that God created, and the circumstances in which the soul is experiencing human life with all that comes with their life.

In the judging, we are, once again, taking a bite of the apple from the tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil.  We are, once again, moving ourselves out of the garden, within which we have been meant to be.  In the judging, we are also judging ourselves and that part of our self of which we are yet unconscious – the yin within our yang, and our yang within our yin – or possibly in this case – our liberal self within our conservative self and our conservative self within our liberal self… and on and on.

Sure, we can always choose to hold onto our black/white thinking – our right vs. left thinking – for an eternity if we so choose, and an eternity after that, and another eternity after that.  Or we can begin to let go of our judgement of others since they have come to learn to value different parts of life than we have.  We can begin to let go of our judgement of others who hold different things in life to be important.  We can let go of our judgement, in effect, letting go of thinking that our life path is God’s life path for all human beings which would thus “teach all humans the same values and same beliefs” as our self.

It is in letting go of our judging others (and everything about them) that we can begin putting the apple back on the tree.  It is this that helps us to step out of the duality of the current world – the conflict and discord of the current world.

Oh, sure, there is still learning from each other and challenging each others’ beliefs that we still go through and experience.  Good thing, too, for what would life be like if no belief or thought were ever challenged – ever?

Letting go of judgement doesn’t mean there are no consequences, for who among us thinks God would no longer have karma be alive and well.  The principles of karma, or as I call it, “soul activity echoes”, would simply happen without judgement – AS IT DOES NOW without our being aware of this fact.

It is judgement which has created duality.  It is letting go of judgement that brings unity and oneness back for us to experience, and perhaps in turn, value, and perhaps value more so than so many other things in life – to the point that we practice letting go of judging regularly – to the point that we find our way back to caring for the people who used to be in our life and who we cared about before – and still care about except for the fact that they think differently and believe differently.

And except for the fact that when digging deep down, it turns out that we find that we value the same or similar things as people who we care about – like love, kindness, compassion – like forgiveness and mercy – and like letting go of judgement for where they are at in their life, heart and mind, and the feeling of oneness and unity with which letting go of judging them then brings us to experience.

God bless you all.

Praying for Now

When we see what is happening in our world, our nation, our state, etc., regardless of what our POV’s, our paradigms, our opinions, and our feelings are, one real thing we can do is pray :

“God, help us.  God, help us.  God, help us….”  … ALL.

On ALL sides of the issues are souls.  Through eternity are all the souls struggling, in sorrow, in pain, seeking …. that which is a better way …

… EVEN WHEN horror, more sorrow and more pain is what we create.

It is the prayers and meditations for ALL that flows through the Christ.  It is the healing of ALL life that is the source of power within Christ.  Not just the people or things we personally want…. but ALL life.

When we leave the prayer to God to fill in the rest, which requires us to believe that God/Christ knows better than we do where and how our prayers can help ALL, God carries our prayers to help heal ALL.

When we pray for ALL souls – which includes ourselves – who bring forth pain and suffering for others – which we all still do in some way in our lives – this is when we connect to the way that leads to accomplishing the purpose of the prayers and meditations.

“God, help ALL life.  God, help ALL life.  God, help ALL life.”

*******

We will see things get worse for so many of us.  As I’ve said in so many postings on this blog, we are entering into THE dark times, or more accurately “darkened times” – darkened because these times include the manifesting of more events which have little love and little light in them – far away from Love and Light.

These times are the “3rd of 3 Events” which I’ve spoken up for years.  These times are created by consciousness which seeks to not manifest Love and Light.  This consciousness has been growing from and is the combined consciousness through thousands of years, and through hundreds of millions of souls, if not over a billion souls throughout time on this planet – throughout the existence of mankind.

We are experiencing the manifesting of much of this darkened energy in order to engage the higher part of ourselves to bring forth Light and Love, and forgiveness, and mercy, and compassion, and patience, and long-suffering (which we’re experiencing) and more….  into the relationships we have with people and ALL life – both directly in our life and indirectly in our life, because we are on the same planet with ALL human beings.

Our prayers and meditations are the medical response to ALL souls suffering, in sorrow and pain, right now.  We are the front-line of the energy of this planet – and our prayers and meditations are the treatment and medicine for ALL.  This energy doesn’t just create a new environment, but it can and does strengthen, raise, and enliven/activate the Spirit, Power and Love active in the planet – within the hearts and minds of individual people/souls.

And remember, we are not the Master Physician.  We are the healing assistants saying, “Here I am, ready to help.  Guide me in how I can.  Use my prayers and meditations for God’s plan for ALL life.”

There is much more to be said about right now, and I will add as much as I can as time continues.

God, help us, ALL.  God, bless us, ALL.

Breathing In and Out

So many helpers, gurus, speakers and teachers speak of our choosing to change ourselves and showing better qualities for our life and times – for on into the future. But, I don’t think we need to do that – for the future, that is. I think we can simply do it for a single moment of our lives.

I think we don’t need to take on such a huge-future task.  I think we can choose from our better heart and mind to love and show the many forms of love, … yet only in a moment – a moment of our life – that particular moment in which we find ourselves taking a breath in and letting it out – in the moment of our life in which we find ourselves breathing.

It is whenever we find our self in that moment that we’re breathing, in that moment, it is easiest to choose to express the better qualities of being human.

Whenever we find our self in a moment that we’re breathing in and out, in that moment, it can be easier to choose to show kindness and mercy.

If we find ourselves in a moment that we’re taking a breath into our lungs, in that moment, we can choose to be patient with another.

We don’t need to offer these qualities in those moments in the future which we haven’t yet taken a breath. We don’t need to show these qualities during the breath that has already gone into the past.

This awareness is only for a special moment in our lives – the moment in which we are breathing air into our lungs in our chest. Are you breathing air into your lungs at this moment? If so, then try this and see.

In this moment, we can choose to learn and understand about another person’s human experience. In this moment, we can choose compassion for the person we see going through hard times. In this moment of breathing in and out, we can choose to extend mercy from within our heart and mind. In this moment of taking a breath, we can forgive.

Taking a breath in and letting it out is a unique experience happening in this moment right now in our lives. I don’t think we need to do it in the future. I think our choosing how to love our neighbor as ourselves, can be for only in the moment while we’re taking a breath in, and while we’re letting the breath out.

Realizing this sure could make it easier to love, since we only are asked to love in that moment that we are breathing.

God bless us, Everyone.

Q and A – Shut downs of April-May, 2020

Are you seeing another shut down like we just experienced? Thank you, in advance!  M.

Yes and No.  M, for the area you’re in, even though you don’t say what area you’re in, I see a continued need to follow all protocols in your area.  I see a continuation of high numbers of infections in the August-Sept months.  I don’t see an official shutdown, but rather many officials strongly considering it, AND rightly so, IMHO, BUT – the step I see them choosing is to strenuously enforce the guidelines.  There is a real possibility that high numbers can go into October if guidelines are not followed strenuously.

Remember, unemployment and financial difficulties will be temporary.  There is some financial help, but it will be difficult for so many people.  For other, many people, the alternative to temporary difficulties is permanent death.  If anyone feels that some deaths are okay to sacrifice for a better economy, then pick which family members you’re okay with dying of Covid-19.  Everyone who dies is a family member to many people.  It is equally likely that it will be in your family.  God help us all.

In Other Areas

In other areas of the US, and the world.  Yes, there will be some re-shutting down.  There will be conflict around shutting down.  There are many who like the adrenaline rush of gambling, and this is what the conflict is about – adrenaline.  Adrenaline is connected to fear, to aggression, to conflict, and to the “fight or flight” feeling with which we are all so familiar.

Put another way, … Adrenaline is related to living from the 3rd Chakra.  However, it is living from the 4th Chakra into which humanity is working to be lifted.  Many choose to live from the 3rd Chakra and don’t want to live from the 4th Chakra.  It is their right.

The different areas will all have a different  consciousness of people and this is what will eventually determine how the virus progresses.  The elected officials have the monumental charge of deciding what to support – opening up which will be a gamble with family members’ lives or shut down and have many unhappy, but alive, people most likely voting them out in November.

Make no mistake about this – do not ever think that things will ever be like they were before this began.  In the totality of the world, this virus has changed and will continue to change how we live our daily lives.  In the same way that 9-11 changed the whole world, the Covid-19 virus is the next thing to change the world.  It won’t be the last thing.

I advise everyone to expand one’s options and possibilities.  We tend to close our minds to new possibilities, because we mostly DON’T want to start anything new – including thinking of new ways.  We tend to like what’s worked in the past regardless of whether it has become harmful or not.  If any of us have trouble with pursuing expanding choices, then approach God to decide what is possible for Him and one’s self, and go from there.  Imagine different ways of making an income or making one’s life work out.  The old ways of the past are in the process of slowly dying out.  We are called to create new ways of living for the future.

Word of caution:  Throwing a tantrum doesn’t phase God, when it comes to whether we cooperate with God in the ongoing changes, or whether we fight it kicking and screaming – through violence, rage, judgement, criticism, insults or the like.  We’ve seen examples of the ‘kicking and screaming’ on TV and in the news.   We are called to be examples of how to cooperate with God’s efforts to help us.

Finally,

Obviously, every location will have some differences all around in facing the virus and it’s path.  But, the imagination, ingenuity and creativity of the people of each area will determine a great deal about how to go about reopening.  The old ways have become harmful and now, just how fatal they can be is “in our face.”

*******

I see the 2nd – 3rd week of June being the best time for most places to open up.  And I see, in general, in many specific locations. the 2nd wave happening late July to a possible 2nd week of October.

 

A Short 2020 Update

With the virus changing things – our lives – I’ll give a momentary 2020 update for the circumstances. For the US, in general, the people will continue to struggle against staying home. I’m still seeing mid-May to Mid-June averaging out to be when society opens back up slightly. This will not be a time of “controlling the Covid-19 virus”.

If society were to stay in place, we would have been able to avoid a resurgence of the virus, but this won’t happen. There will be an upswing again in the numbers. I’m seeing them go up in the 2nd half of July, then more in August. This means that the election in November will still have the air of the Virus about it.

If you’re still playing in the stock market, stop. The ups and downs will blindside people. Losses will contribute to the economic bad times. You cannot juggle knives when you’re blindfolded, and you won’t get specific enough information from psychics to save you from financial losses. The storm waves are too high.  Sit on what you have for the long term – at least 5-6 years.

This is a long process for the whole world. There are areas in the world that will still see devastating numbers in the fall.

At the same time, with a Democratic win for the presidency in November, the Republican Senate leaders will still announce they will obstruct everything they can. This bodes badly for helping the American people.  Even as individual people, they have the right to choose arguing and fighting as their mode of living – just like you, and/or me, if we wanted.

This is one reason why I have said this many times – don’t look to the Federal government for help during this time. Help for individuals and communities will come from local sources. And being a part of community efforts will be what helps people.

Helpful steps to take:
THE MIND
1. Express creativity in whatever is necessary for you to carry out. It is creative expression which will help to enliven people. Your own mind will have new ways to be creative if you slow down your “racing”.
2. Use your hands, use your mind, be active – all in creative ways.
3. To get a sense of how to be creative, sit quietly, resting the mind, eyes closed for a few minutes – allowing your breathing to slow down, and allowing your adrenaline to slow down. This process will allow creative ideas to bubble up. It is adrenaline activated in the bloodstream which also causes one to grind their teeth and be on edge.
4. Sometimes it takes priming the pump for new ways and new ideas to come forth. Don’t censor yourself. There are no bad ideas, just ones that need tweaking.  If we can think it, we can do it.
5. Challenge your own mind. There are plenty of ways – games are just one suggestion.
6. Read. To yourself or to others. For children – read “The Princess Bride” book. Read to them as they’re laying down with their eyes closed – the associated images in their minds will be magnified. Don’t believe me? Have someone read to you as an experiment with you lying down and having your eyes closed.
7. There are 10,000 other items that also can be listed in this category.

THE BODY:
1. Drink water. Pay attention – to help you drink more water. Or tea. Dehydration can occur without knowing it, and this can mess up your brain function in subtle ways. Drinking more water will help your body in ways you’re not even thinking of right now. It helps with washing your physical body’s systems of which some may be contributing to your current stress hormonally – both male and female.
2. Let go of using the whip on yourself. If you don’t have all the answers on how to handle this time and these experiences, then realize that only you were thinking that you should have all the answers – you can change your mind and give yourself more time. This will help your adrenals to calm down.
3. The world won’t come to a standstill if you take a nap. You can get back on the world, when you wake up. You’re going to be tired.  Sometimes, you won’t know it and you won’t know why.
4. Yoga, exercise, riding bicycles, walking, gardening, building something or making something with your hands, sitting in a rocking chair, and other physical activities.
5. Try an activity which you’ve heard others try, but you’ve never tried before. Try it only once just to see what it’s like.
6. Focus your attention on “what to do today” and only today.
7. There are also 10,000 other items that can be listed in this category, as well.

THE EMOTIONS:
1. Reach out via whichever method is available to anyone you feel comfortable with contacting. Remember, they need to have contact with someone, too. Even if they’re across country.  They are feeling scared, antsy, and other feelings, as well.
2. When still working at a job, remember, by your example of following the guidelines set in place, others will be helped to feel more comfortable with following the guidelines.
3. Don’t criticize people for following guidelines if you don’t agree. They care about and want their families and friends to be safe, and these ways offer the most hope to make them safe.  People don’t care who’s right.  People care more about saving their loved ones lives.
4. Be brave, but also be wise. Trust God, and tie your camel. No one is harmed by following guidelines. No one is helped by condemning the guidelines. There’s an old Texas saying, “Trying to demonstrate that we’re smarter than everyone else by condemning others efforts, always has the opposite effect.”  (Hmm.  It could be a new Texas saying.)
5. Ask questions of other people in your life, and of yourself — about life. It’s time to check in with others on what they feel, too. You will discover something new about them. Find the book, “1000 Questions for Couples”.  Check out the questions available.
6. Someone once said, “There is no excuse for being bored.” Answer one of these questions – “What do you like most about being bored?” or “What do you like most about enjoying yourself?”
7. There are 20,000 other items that could be listed in this category.

THE SPIRITUAL PATH:
1. Talk to God inside your own mind and heart. Be honest. If you’re afraid, say so. He/She is not mean.
2. Pray a short prayer, when you think to do so. Praying doesn’t need lots of words when only 4 will do – “God, please help us.”
3. Sit down for 5 minutes, just to rest. You’ll know when to get back up.
4. Meditate for the benefits it brings. Meditate in order to sit in silence with a very kind “Friend”.
5. Bless people as you go through your day. “Bless you.” can be said to anyone who is helpful.
6. There are 30,000 other items that could also be listed in this category.

 

God bless you.

Evolution: What It Is Not vs. What It Can Be

A lot of people have very unique images in their minds about what this world will look like “after the evolutionary time” passes. I have some abrupt news for some people. This evolutionary path is not going to manifest as “a wonderful world where everything goes the way we want”. It’s not going to manifest as everyone knowing how to cooperate and get along. It’s not going to manifest as a dream world. Take a look around and realize that we have been on an evolutionary path since the beginning of time, and an Earth-based/human/spiritual evolutionary path since Adam and Eve. Now is a unique time for this process, but there has never been a time when evolution has not been or will not be happening.

Evolution – namely our spiritual evolution will manifest from within our hearts. What we put forth from our hearts is what will come into the world – not one or the other, but rather BOTH – the beautiful and the ugly, what we’re conscious of and what is hidden in our subconscious, all that is good and all that is bad – within our self. This is what will then manifest as our social evolution in the Outer World.

The evolution is activated by how we respond to the world events, both large and small, both global events and individual life events. Evolution begins with what is in our hearts and minds. So, don’t look for it only and simply to independently manifest in the outer world around us – the arena and circumstances of our day to day life. It will grow from our own responses to these outer world circumstances of our day to day life. Our outer world always comes from our inner world and not the other way around.

How we respond (to the outer world,) is the source of what we create within us. It is this consciousness and energy within us, which is that which is evolving. This consciousness will eventually bring about the different life that we seek for ourselves and in turn, what we then contribute to the community of which we are a part.

 

The Decade of the Heart and Mind

Artist-Mark Lewis Wagner

Artist: Mark Lewis Wagner

In the next 6-7 years in particular, we will be faced with many challenges to let go of things we thought were established reliable ways of thinking, acting and living and choosing for our lives. We will have to let go of thinking that we know what we’re doing, and let go of thinking we have a good head on our shoulders. We will be called to learn things that we don’t even know are things we didn’t know. We are being put in situations where we either change how we do things, or think things, or else we could bring suffering of many different kinds or even death into people’s lives. We can see that happening already.

Don’t look to the outside world – any outside-ourselves person or thing – to be the source of any evolution or “saving us” from the next 6-7 years. All evolution and “saving” comes from within us in our choices and responses – when we respond from kindness, love, patience, forgiveness, etc.

We use this guidance to make better choices and/or to manifest more heart-centered responses. We will be helped to see that we do not have the wherewithal to evolve ourselves. We will be helped to learn that all of us are called to let go of that which is holding us back, individually.  And of course, some of us will say “NO” to this evolution and these changes, because freewill will not be taken away from anyone.

If we are willing to evolve, then the evolution will come about, and our responses – either unselfish-centered or selfish-centered, either “my way” or “Infinite Love’s way”, either “what I think should be how people and life should be” or “how God creates the world from the heart outwardly” – our individual responses are what will fuel the evolution of our “self towards our higher self” individually.

Act (Love) Locally – Family, Friends, “Your Neighbor”

Yes, there are people who are willing to respond and help us in our day-to-day lives, but we are called to help others, as well. Not just “help” in the ways we think, but in new ways that we’ve never considered, which we will not even know until the moment that we decide to help. We are needing healing, and we are the ones to help bring healing – the Wounded Healers.

Willingness is everything to this evolutionary process. When we are willing, all things in life then happen in ways that will “help us to evolve”. When we are unwilling, all things in life then happen in ways that will diminish our efforts to prevent evolution. What this means is that God is all about evolution of our awareness of our being spirits who are the Children of the One Infinite Consciousness – God. God is committed to this evolution for all souls, or rather evolution for all life.

Be aware of: don’t look for the capacity to control evolutionary processes in the outer world. Our only control is our willingness and decision of when to go within to reconnect with Infinite Life that exists within our hearts and minds. The only control we have is when to turn within, and if need be, cry out to God for help, or say quite accurately, “Thank you God for your presence in my life, for your kindness and deep love, and for the support and help you extend to me every moment of every second, of every minute of every day.”

The Greatest of Challenges and the Calling to Love

Finally, the greatest of challenges has been given to us, (alongside remembering “with God, all things are possible.”) As Christ said, we are called to love our enemies, pray for those who hurt us, forgive those who spite us. This includes the call regarding the following — if we don’t change how we respond to people who we tend to think of as “everyday enemies”, those who severely irritate and make us angry, online, on social media, in our own family, in the political scene, etc, and etc, then we are not doing the work we’re here to do. One of the hardest lessons waiting for us to grasp is that the qualities we see in others are also the qualities within ourselves, otherwise we wouldn’t see them. Even seeing others DENIAL of this truth – is one of our own lessons about ourselves. Hence, why one of the most important prayers we can give forth is, “Lord, help me be honest with myself!”

If we don’t change ourselves, then our world, which reflects our inner selves, will not change in any way.  We do the work. We are the water that yet is to be changed into the wine. If we don’t pour ourselves forth from the source of kindness, compassion, patience, understanding, forgiveness, long-suffering and more, then our world will not evolve.

We start with only ourselves, individually. If we are not willing to heal/change our own hearts, minds and souls, then we can never expect to be successful at healing/changing the world. The outer world appearance and circumstances are simply a reflection of the inner world within each of us.

As the Course in Miracle says, “All we need to do is be willing and the Holy Spirit will do the rest.” This is why, “With God, all things are possible.” This is why this calling is possible. This is why it is possible for us to change our hearts within ourselves.

God bless all of you, and may God bless everyone’s effort put forth to demonstrate the best that exists within our hearts, minds and souls.

“Giving to the Poor” (?)

So many of us have thought, “if I had money, I would give to those who need. If I had more money, I would donate it to many charities.”  “If I won the lottery, I’d donate so much of it.”  So many times, so many of us have had this sentiment – that if we had lots of money, then it would be possible – that we would not miss it if we gave to those who were in need. It is an easy thought to have, and it is a common belief to have, even at the same time that we may realize the “WE” are the needy.

It is in these statement moments, in these moments of belief that we think, I don’t have enough to give to others.  It is in these moments, also that, simply put, we are thinking of our bank account, thinking that money is the only thing the poor need.  In essence, we are not considering the riches beyond what is obvious.  Most certainly we’re not thinking of anything of which we do have.  We’re not thinking in other directions with this idea, especially when we aren’t even aware of any “riches” which we do have.

Instead, in these moments of wishing in our hearts that we could be monetarily generous, why not look at the “riches” which we do have and give of that?

While we may look around and think to ourselves, “What riches? I’m taking care of my family and myself as best I can. What riches do I have?”

What I refer to is the riches which are given to us in every moment. These are the riches which are conceivably infinite in supply. We merely need to be aware of these riches and we can then begin giving them out… if we so choose to be this generous.

These riches are hidden, sometimes to ourselves. We don’t even know we have them, sometimes. But, we do face the experience of knowing them, because we come face to face with the “storing house” where we keep these riches. Do you understand where I’m going with this? Not yet?  These riches are meant for people who are in need, and I mean “IN NEED!”

But remember, with these riches, we also can be stingy, and give nothing, if we so choose.  However, if our willingness stays in our hearts and minds, and our generosity is the spirit which we wish to be a part of, then we can begin giving the riches which we do have (and these riches are abundant indeed.)

The riches are the ones in our hearts.  Beginning with  – the richness of forgiveness being one of the most abundant, IF we so choose it to be, and IF we’re willing to continue to give out an abundance of forgiveness which others need. There is infinite forgiveness within us, and the question then is if we are willing to give to those who need forgiveness.  There-in is the rub.  We are faced with the question, are we really wanting to be generous and give to those in need?  If so, then we can start with those who are in need of forgiveness.

In the same way, Mercy, is another richness, which exists in infinite amount within our heart and soul, and which we stand ready at the counting house door, able to give if we so choose to give.

We’ve been at these riches’ storing house doors many times in the past, and failed to realize how rich we were, … and … at the same time that we’ve chosen to not give out our riches to those who need.

We all know people who need forgiveness. We all know people who need mercy. We all know people who need kindness, and understanding. And we all know people who need our patience, and our tolerance, and many more of that which is within our own heart.

We can give out every amount we think we have, because no matter how much we give out, we do not reach the bottom of the amount which exists within us. Yes, we may reach points where we choose to not give out any of that of which we have an infinite supply – of that which the person desperately needs, but we never reach the end of the supply.

We can give out our riches in the quiet of our own thoughts and feelings. We can give out forgiveness in the silence of our time alone, thinking of another. We need not be in anyone’s presence or any specific location. We don’t need to trumpet it to the crowds. It is not a matter of where or how or why. It is only a matter of willingness to give, and then giving.

Forgiveness, Mercy, Kindness, Patience, Understanding, Tolerance, Love, Gentleness, and more, – we have a massive storehouse for these – a storehouse so great in size that it has no end and no limiting walls. It comes from within us and there is no limit within us – except when we decide to say “No. I won’t” and we close the door to that which is within us that we otherwise would have given.

Then and only then, do we close the door to our storehouse and not give of that which we have an infinite supply – and usually to someone who is more in need of what we would give them, than anyone could ever know.

The final decision is ours.  We can be generous with the riches we have within us ready to give, because there is no end to these riches. There is no limit. Within us is the Infinite Forgiveness, the Infinite Mercy, the Infinite Loving Kindness, the Infinite Patience, etc, which we are learning exists within God – and which we are learning God makes available to us, within us, ready to give out, as soon as we are willing to decide to give to others, … and to ourselves.

We can fulfill our own wish to be generous, perhaps not with money, but with some things that are more valuable than money.  And if we so choose, we can even give to ourselves.

First, Consider This: Preface to the Psychic Predictions for 2020

Where to Start ?

In just a few “seconds”, it will be 2020 !

First, consider this with regard to what many of us are seeing psychically.  The entrance into the difficult years of 2021-2026 with what I mention here – will be both somewhat gradual, and somewhat quick.  This time period will challenge the whole world, and in many different ways.   Some will need saved, some will need help, some will be in positions of being able to save and some will be in positions of being able to help.

Because some of what I discuss will be gradual, some of it won’t be noticed too easily or quickly.  This does not mean it isn’t happening.  Because some of it will be quick, some will have a more dramatic impact.  This doesn’t mean that we can’t do anything about these related problems.

********

In 2020, how much effort we put into bringing forth very real energy of real love – the love that comes with real effort to try to bring forth kindness and mercy, forgiveness and understanding from within our self – will determine how open we can open the door which will lead to the new age of Man – which is closer than close, but yet will not come by itself if no effort to bring it is put forth.

2020 will be the transition year.  It will be a “hinge” year. Not only will certain things of decade of the 2020’s be influenced by the year 2020, but the hinge will “open the door” to 2021-2026 and the events of the next 6 years-some of the most significant (and challenging) of this age of Man. How “open” the “door” is opened is changing. The door is the door to potential progression and/or potential digression depending on the freewill choices every individual makes.

The door hinge is rusty. And it will take sincere effort to open, because this door is the door to our individual, as well as collective Heart – Our Collective Centered Heart, wherein the Infinite Consciousness of God is able to come forth into this world through the love, understanding and compassion we extend to all life – including all human beings – and YES, even all elected officials.

Through the ways we walk on our path in 2020, so will we then be able to extend into 2021-2026 the energy and consciousness which has been built on all years’ efforts leading up to and including the year 2020. Like a stairway, whichever level we are able to achieve in 2020, the next steps/years will be determined and measured by the previous steps/years’ efforts.

No special grace will save us if we ignore the call for Love in our lives both individually and collectively, and to manifest this Love, in the varied available potential forms in this world; the call which we have named ‘spiritual work’ for which humanity is desperate. While we are not called to be individually perfect or species perfect, we are called to be determined and willing to work at bringing forth the better and the best parts of ourselves – even when what we see in others makes us think others are doing the opposite, even when what we see in others, reflects what we consider the worst of humanity.

Christ’s Demonstration

At this point in human time, it is important to hold in our minds that Christ walked His path of Peace and Willingness to Help as our Brother, even when violence from all groups was erupting around Him. He walked His path of Love, of compassion, of healing, even when hatred surrounded Him. He neither condemned individuals nor governments for their “sins” (mistakes, bad decisions, harmful acts, hateful feelings, etc), but rather offered patience, mercy, forgiveness, long-suffering, and no judgement whatsoever – taking the High road in all ways, which, in turn, began the path of bringing Joy, through transformation, to a weary world.  This example is for us to work at, as well, when we face that which is happening in the world today and in the days to come.

In 2020, there will be many conflicts, both loud and visible, and quiet and in secret.  (I will get into some of them.) These will be mostly more as social conflict than military conflict, but some will be conflict between the military and civilians, as is happening already.

In 2020, sadly, there will be even more chances even for the elect to stop walking the spiritual path and return to where we were as a people.  Therefore, 2020 is a time for us to remember, “Yes, render unto Caesar, that which is Caesar’s” but don’t let it pull us away from or ignore/forget the next part – “to render unto God, that which is God’s.”

Give to God that which is God’s – including mercy, patience, compassion, kindness, long-suffering, and the love which we forget already exists forever in infinite time within our hearts – to the people we, personally, come in contact daily. Give to God that which is Gods – including Willingness – to build brotherhood, sisterhood, understanding, cooperation, charity, any so-far-learned wisdom, Oneness, and an open heart and an open mind in how we respond to the events of this day.

Freewill Choices

In the coming times, it becomes more significant to know that we have a choice between 2 options – Love or Fear – the 4th chakra or the 3rd chakra – “Loving kindness” or “Fight or Flight”. We cannot tell another person to choose what we, ourselves, haven’t chosen. In addition, our walking our own path of Love – how we relate to other people – can not be determined by or based on other people’s freewill choices about how they conduct their life.

2020 is a year of preparation and transition. Around the world, 2020 is also going to be a year dominating in both verbal dreams and verbal wars. 2020 will be a time of continued seeing the hopeful possibilities, as well as the real dangers in the years and decades ahead.  In 2020, we can begin recognizing that the ways of living of the past did, indeed, create the problems of the present, and we need individual effort (building to collective effort) in the present time in order to find new ways of living for the future.

All of Us

The coming 6 years which 2020 will lead us into – 2021-2026 – are of lower vibrations (also considered darker because this vibration of the actions which will be carried out is further away from the Love/Light vibration level.)  This energy is the remaining unhealed, yet transformed energy which would have manifested as a physical changing of the Earth’s poles – the Pole Shift (a tilting on its physical axis) which Edgar Cayce predicted if humanity had not done anything to change in the decades which followed his psychic reading. The Pole Shift’s source is a combination of natural evolution in the planet, as well as massive karmic energy which had been waiting to manifest all at once as the physical Pole Shift – but which has since been worked with so it won’t manifest all at once, now.

That remaining supreme turmoil energy being manifested through the Earth and through people, which will be experienced by many people of the Earth in the coming years is NOT the result of any one person. Neither Donald Trump becoming president nor Hillary Clinton, had she become president, is the cause of the problems in the world. Neither Republicans nor Democrats are responsible for the problems of the world – but rather individuals in all walks of life – also known as “All of Us”  It is the consciousness of the people of the world, throughout this Age of Man, heretofore unresolved in our subconscious, that gave birth to the leaders in this world, and the movements these leaders represent – not vice versa. The diversity of leaders also is representative of the consciousness of the people.

In the U.S., Donald Trump becoming president is the result of both the fears of things in the world, and the hope of alleviating these fears through victory and control over those things or people perceived as enemies- all third chakra.  It is the Collective Social Consciousness of the People of the World afraid of what “others” would do to bring harm that brought forth the “problems” which came from unmanifested consciousness energy waiting to be expressed in people’s lives.  This is not just in our time, but also throughout human history.  AND the challenges that I speak of are from energy, which has also come from all different times of human history.  Blaming others for our own contributions to this rather than acknowledging our own past life involvement, and subsequent challenge to forgive, does not help.

The Work

There already has been much work by millions of people to bring forth the higher minds and the energy of the higher minds with the energy of the Centered Heart. This work has been slowly elevating much of the energy in the Earth in preparation of entering into the coming 6 years as a crucible precursor to the next age of Man beginning in 2038.  This is the work which has transformed us away from the physical Pole Shift spoken of before.

There has been limited success. We are somewhat successful, but success in this case is not 100%. The potential results are not either black or white – yes or no, 0% or 100%. The amount of energy is based on the level of effort put into holding to the Centered Heart of Infinite Love, and ever returning to a connection to the Consciousness of the Higher Forces.

These referred to “forces” are the forces of practicing patience, and the forces that teach taking the higher road. It is the consciousness which sees the whole human race struggling and in pain, with no side being the right side or the wrong side. All people have within us, all traits, including those we go to war against, regardless of whether we acknowledge it to our self or deny it to our self.  This means that every person is equal in potential character to every other person and equally both right and wrong.  As the Edgar Cayce Readings said, “There is good in the worst of us, and bad in the best of us.”  This also means there is good in the worst elected official, and there is bad in the best elected official.  This reality is true for all human beings.

As we make effort to forgive instead of blame, to be understanding instead of criticize and condemn, feel compassion instead of rejection of others, walk the path of long-suffering instead of attack and condemnation, then we are working on bringing higher vibrations into this world which will in turn help heal and resolve the energies of disasters which are physical, social, spiritual, mental, financial, or emotional each ready to manifest.

In this time, all of us are not called to be perfect, but to pour forth our effort to forgive. We are not called to be saints but to try again, and again, and again, when we stumble on our path. We are not called to heal all that needs healed, but rather address today what lands in our laps, today.

You’ll see the Paypal Retreat purchase page – enter your fee grand total, (the ‘quantity’ will remain 1), then select Continue.  Then you should  see the Paypal login page.  Instead of entering Paypal, scroll down on the login page and you’ll see the Credit Card payment link.  The Paypal Link page does not itemize the fees. Insert the total amount of your payment.

No one will be turned away at the door for not registering beforehand, but IT SURE HELPS IF YOU REGISTER BEFORE, (so we can give Camp Capers office an accurate number of people for whom to prepare rooms and meals.)

For the address and map to Camp Capers, click on any Camp Capers link here.

For anyone wanting to attend Sunday only, and arriving in the morning, then I’ll have registration before breakfast, from 7:45-8am at the office front patio.  If you can’t find me, look for me in the Dining Hall.

As always, if you wish to pay by check, you can pay by mail, or when you arrive, and it is still a good idea to register beforehand, as soon as you know. C.C. needs to prepare many days before for the number of people eating any of the meals.

Thank you for your interest.

Who or What Are We Changing?

It is said, “what does it benefit a man to gain all he wants, if he loses his soul in the process?” It is the same for all of us. What does it gain us, if we save the Earth, but lose our souls, our own selves, our community, our society, our nation, our civilization, our human race in the process? We can do both, but we can only save the Earth, if we save our own Self, as well.

Put another way, the Earth is a reflection of humanity’s consciousness, and we will create in the Earth that which is in our own consciousness. If we are polluted, we will pollute the Earth, as well. If we are destructive, we will destroy the Earth, as well. If we are abusive, we will abuse the Earth, as well. If we are in conflict with each other, we will be in conflict with the Earth, as well.

But, if we are kind to each other, we will be kind to the Earth. If we show compassion to each other, we will show compassion to the Earth. If we are forgiving to each other, or show mercy to each other, we will be forgiving and merciful to all things of the Earth. If we are tolerant of each other, our tolerance will extend to our planet and all life on the planet, as well.

We can be willing to try to save the Earth all we want. But the real issue is are we willing to save our own SELF – our own heart, mind and spirit?

We, human beings, too often, choose conflict over and over and over again. We, too often, choose war and violence towards others, whether in entertainment or in real life. We, too often, choose abuse of others as a way of expressing ourselves.

We may easily condemn those we see as doing this, but if we were to walk in their shoes, we could easily be the ones doing this. We condemn those who sell the weapons of death, those who make the money, those who pollute the world, those who stand on the backs of others to make their own infinitely short life easy and themselves rich, but…. we are the ones who attend movies watching superheroes show us how to use violence to save the world, buy the products to make our lives easier, who buy the stocks in the companies to make the money, who imagine ourselves living easy and suffering-free.

We can and do point the finger at corporations and companies who sometimes make the world a worse place to live, but we are the workers at these places, we are the managers, we are the ones who make money in the offices, and we are the ones who say, “I care about my life first. I can’t afford to save the world. I’ll do something if it’s easy and convenient.”

*******

If we don’t start with our self – our own hearts and our own beliefs and our own thoughts – changing where the conflict and warring starts – inside ourselves – as individuals – then we will only create the same problems over and over again.  No change will happen externally of ourselves, if no change happens internally within ourselves. We might be willing to work on ourselves or change things in the Earth – for one generation – but without the change inside our own soul, we are simply changing things for others who are just like us – in wanting war, and in wanting conflict, and in wanting the golden calf.

A spiritual life is “building for eternity”. I’m not talking about a constructed “religion-based” heaven of “spending eternity with the angels singing hymns in perfect bliss” – but the eternity where we work on ourselves to change who we are inwardly, how we relate to other people – how we relate to our brothers and sisters at whom currently we throw bullets of every kind.  I’m talking about the eternity of growth, change and possibilities referred to when He said, “With God, All Things Are Possible.”

We are born to come into the Earth, challenging us to learn about our real relationships to others – not our physicality and not our religio-city, but our spirit existence – inhabiting a body for a very short time to grow and learn to find better ways to be among ourselves as people.

God sends us into the Earth to practice Love in every manifestation. God sends us into the Earth for a very short time, to demonstrate the bounty of Love- through Kindness, Compassion, Patience, Service, Mercy, Forgiveness and other fruits of the spirit.

And when this very short life is over, we get a chance to examine how much we learned, how much we extended kindness, compassion, patience, mercy, tolerance, and more. We get the chance to look back and see if we learned anything, and what it is we actually then taught to others.  We get the opportunity to look forward to see what we can work on during our future sojourns.

We get the chance to look back at this life compared to all our other previous lives, try to understand what helped and what hurt our efforts.  We can ask where we used this opportunity to help, where we used this opportunity to harm, or both. Did we change? Did we grow? Did we learn? Did we waste anything of this life ignoring our purpose?

“With God, all things are possible”, includes learning, growing, and bringing forth love.  This includes, learning, growing and practicing changes within our own hearts and minds.  With this, we find encouragement to help us get back up and dust ourselves off when we get tripped up by the billions of things that we thought were important, but turned out not to be, or at least, not to be as much as we thought.

“With God, all things are possible” includes helping change to come into the Earth, and it then to come in via the changes we make in our hearts and minds – bringing real change, lasting change, and the change that is passed down to generations instead of being lost in the next generation.  The external changes of the world are like dust in the wind.  The internal changes are built on that which lasts for eternity.
