Some of what I have written in response to the questions, are general in their statements, rather than specific. This is because part of our growth is to learn the general principles of Spirit and apply them in personal ways in our lives. We are not meant to be like computers – told what to do and do only what we’re told to do. We’re meant to take our understandings and apply them in personal and unique lives, practicing the wisdom and the principles, so that we can make these learned lessons real and applicable to a human life in the world. At no time will freewill be taken from us to turn us into machines answering only to commands. We are meant to develop our comprehension of all we learn and practice in order to learn more. We practice by applying the lessons in our real life situations.
1. I think you mentioned … about the children now seeing things in their lifetimes that we can’t imagine. I am very interested in First Contact. I would love to be around when that happens. Do you have a rough ballpark estimate? Are they waiting until we collectively evolve more; stop this senseless violence towards each other, ourselves, animals, the planet? D.
First contact has been “made” thousands of times already. There is regular interaction with many species for generations and even today. What you’re talking about is a public recognition of regular and recognized interrelations. This won’t happen in a “Star Trek”-like way for many, many years. There is possible public recognition in 30 years to 60 years, but not in a big way. More in the “long distance” phone call way. Then the times will be un-exciting again. So, lots of time will pass, yet.
Look at our world and all the conflict and wars we have. THEY DO NOT WANT TO GET CAUGHT UP IN THAT!! Look at the ways that the politically powerful people want more power or the place in our lives where we humans place money. WE DON’T WANT TO GET MORE PLAYERS INVOLVED LIKE THAT!! Look at what we’re doing to this planet. THEY DON’T WANT US DOING THAT TO THEM.
There are some that think that technology is our savior and that is absolutely an incorrect understanding. Atlantis had higher levels of technology than we do today and wiped itself off the map and out of historical records. Technology is the external to our internal inner spiritual guidance – and the external is never where the Savior exists.
There are some ET visitors that would help and some that would harm. In the 2nd half of this century, we will be able to go beyond the moon. Help with this from ETs will begin in very small ways sometime at the end of this/beginning of the next century in ways more than they have so far. You and I will not see that this life, but more in future lives. As a planet we are moving in this direction and it is our species future. You will be able to see this evolution as a soul, as you continue. Your interest in this is because you like being a traveler/ adventurer.
2. You gave an overview of this year, 2019. What will 2020 be like? I know those challenging years of low energy are coming and soon. I also know that so much hinges on choices made so I am aware that you can only do this from a big picture perspective.
I’m waiting to talk about 2020. I’ll be posting as much as I can about 2020 in the Fall, near the time that we enter into 2020. It is a very significant and important year. I will also post this year’s 2019 predictions publicly in October, 2019. [My 2019 predictions were available to the public beginning in January, 2019, for a fee of $6 – through this blog.]
3. Speaking of those years of challenge (i.e. great opportunity), how can I prepare myself best to make it through those years and even thrive? While material comfort is certainly nice, I guess the question really ought to be how to best prepare myself spiritually. That’s always the key, isn’t it? The real foundation of all things?
The years of challenge, 2020-2026: the best spiritual way to prepare is to practice, practice, practice. There is no romantic activity to be a part of and no special outward or external participation that we are called towards – except —- Service and help to those who need help – including giving the help and service to our own inner being, because sometimes we are called to — “physician, heal thyself”.
The call is to respond to the outward struggles with our inward connection to the Christ or God or Higher Self or Buddha within (whichever name we use when referring to the Father/Mother God within our own hearts). We prepare through the manifesting of the fruits of the spirit in our everyday lives: patience, loving kindness, mercy, compassion, understanding, faith, forgiveness, support, comforting, humility, charity, long suffering and the others, as well as continue to pray and meditate. This is not just for extending and expressing to others, but also to ourselves as one more who must find our way, as a being who is united with others – and others who are united with us.
We are called to go deeper within to discover ourselves, and to discover why we sometimes choose to not love, choose to not be kind, choose to be afraid, choose to not pray or meditate. All of this is the walking of the spiritual path, at times alone, and at times in groups and communities together. It is from this learning process and practicing process which we develop the inner tools to help each other and make it through the Time of Challenge.
Be open-minded and open-hearted, as Christ was/is. It is the open mind that God fills with wisdom, understanding, and insight. It is through the open heart that God’s love and consciousness come into this physical world.
4a. With the evolution of computer processors and AI, how is this all likely to play out over the next 20-30 years? I mean, there are two extremes in predictions. The free market libertarians always say that advances in technology create more new jobs than what gets destroyed. The doomsayers are claiming that half of us will be made redundant and rendered useless.
The doomsayers are not saying those things for the reasons they think they are. The libertarians are not saying those things for the reasons they think they are. Many Doomsayers say this, because they aren’t seeing the Infinite Creative Spirit of God within each living spirit living in the Earth. Many Libertarians say this, because they seek to promote their views of the future, and know nothing other than seeing technology and money as the primary force bringing creativity.
Both fall short in seeing this as having an evolutionary potential, and both fall short in understanding how God, mankind and technology relate to each other. No amount of technology will cause souls to Love God above all else and Love our neighbor as ourself. We advanced to the point of splitting the atom and putting a man on the moon, but did these advances help us to unite as human beings across the planet? We have created the Internet, but has the Internet ended hatred, prejudice, condemnation of those who are different or who hold different beliefs? Technology is not a savior, but like all tools, they have their purpose and uses. It is through the human heart that Infinite Love can come into this world. Infinite Love is the Infinite Savior.
The extremes are not where we will be going – but sometimes we human beings have the desire to want to be important to others or promote our own views. We want to be loved, we want to be held in high esteem – and mostly because inwardly we tend to believe just the opposite about our own self – that we are not lovable and we are not worthy of being respected, well-regarded or even to be alive on this planet. Of course, this is a simplistic explanation, but we are faced with dealing with two directions – selfishness or unselfishness – us against them or all of us uniting together as One – putting ourselves first before others or putting all of us together on equal standing.
And although it is easy to see these issues played out in others, we are not called to heal others where these issues are concerned. Rather, we are called to heal ourselves. Jokingly, I offer that after we have made ourselves perfect, then and only then, we can make others perfect.
To say human beings will be useless is like saying God is useless, evolution is useless, eating and breathing is useless, growing, learning, evolving is useless. Humanity and evolution are synonymous. They are equal. There is none of one without the other. The fear comes up, but only because fear comes with looking backward.
The “new jobs” come and will continue to come and will continue more – being created as needs arrive. To say there will be no jobs is to say there will be no needs to be fulfilled. Having no needs to be fulfilled has never been the case with human beings, and will never be the case, because human beings as physical beings have needs, which are always evolving. Human beings are constantly evolving, and therefore, our needs are always evolving.
Look at the technological influx we have now as compared to 500 or 1000 or 2000 years ago. Question: In our times, now, are people sitting at home with nothing to do because all their needs have been met? No. However, the idea is still in our consciousness that this is what we want. The surprise to humans, as we continue to live our life is that we don’t want to “do nothing”, we want to evolve, and with this, we always have “needs”. One of these needs will only be fulfilled by going within and developing our awareness and awakening to our relationship with God.
Creativity comes in to the picture for us to come up with “something to do” and “fulfilling the needs”. This creativity is Infinite and is a manifestation of the Infinite Creativity of the Infinite Consciousness of God.
4b. Where on this continuum do you see the true being located? Of course, my concern in all of this is where and how do I fit in with the emerging economy? Anyone who claims that age discrimination is not widespread needs to talk to people over the age of 50, which I am approaching before too long.
The TRUE BEING can and will continue to create the methods and processes AND avenues in which to fulfill learning, and evolution, whether in the Earth or out of the Earth. Many “forms” (like jobs,) are created when they are needed. We manifest what we, as souls, need, when we need it. Notice I didn’t say, “…as humans…”
The emerging economy is one where we will ALL face the up and down cycles, … each in their own way. The Bible tells us, “It rains and sunshines on the good and bad.” It also rains and sunshines on both the rich and poor.” Living in the Earth, all are subject to the Earth’s laws and circumstances. Your own circumstances, although not the same as the other 7+ billion, they also will not be different than the other 7+ billion. Your own situation will go through cycles. This is a time for ALL souls to make decisions and choose.
There is no human being who has not been discriminated against in some way, whether during this life or a past life. The fear of this coming forth again in our own current life, can trigger more discrimination. In other words, we manifest towards others what we are afraid will happen to us. But, we don’t always learn the lesson of not participating in discrimination towards others, the first time we experience it. So, here we are on Earth, smack dab in the middle of discrimination alley.
While the demonstration of discrimination is noticeable, it can serve to teach spiritual lessons to those who had discriminated against others in the past. The avenues used for spiritual lessons which are available to any who are ready to “get busy and get their hands into the good soil” – get to work on our spiritual path – are readily available – just, not always in the way we want or have decided in our head that they must look like or must show up. Therefore, the experience of pain and suffering, including discrimination, while painful and full of suffering, have been chosen by souls as a way to experience spiritual lessons – the main one being – That which we create for others to experience, is that which we are creating for ourselves to experience.
Many souls have chosen to inflict pain and suffering onto others (including ourselves choosing to inflict pain and suffering onto others). By choosing this, we have deemed pain and suffering to exist and if it then exists for one, it exists for all of Infinite Consciousness. The experiences of pain and suffering which we create for others will then go full circle and come back home to the one who created them, for the creator of the experience to then be on the receiving end. Can you see areas of your own life where you’ve experienced pain and suffering? We all have, which means we all have helped create pain and suffering for others – whether in this life or in past lives.
The way things work is not – “God, make my will happen, not yours.” but that is how we want things to happen sometimes, isn’t it. We want others to learn their lessons, but not always our self. Therefore, as with other forms of harm inflicted on others, discrimination is also a “created” experience, and therefore also subject to this “full circle” principle.
The healing of discrimination, like the healing of pain and suffering, is the same principle. The experiences we create for others is the experience we create for ourselves. Some say a person must go through their karma, guilt, shame, pain, or on and on. If that is what we are creating for someone – to go through their karma, guilt, etc, then we are creating the experience of going through karma, guilt, etc for ourselves, as well. If we create the experience of sincere forgiveness, compassion, tenderness, mercy, kindness, patience, understanding, support, etc, then it is that experience which we are creating for ourselves.
This means that recognizing others in ourselves and ourselves in others is the way to healing discrimination as well as other forms of pain and suffering. When we see someone else suffering in some way, we are also witnessing our self suffering, because when it is created for one person to experience, it is created for Infinite Consciousness of God to experience. All souls are part of Infinite Consciousness, therefore all souls are impacted in some way by the experience.
To see one person suffer, is to see all people suffer. When this lesson is learned, many will choose something other than pain and suffering for others to experience.
The creativity of God is infinite, and creativity is infinitely happening. Infinite creativity is always creating Infinity. We can see this in a small way with the ever expanding physical Universe, but won’t understand the Infinite part until after we integrate an awareness of the existence of life beyond the physical world – into the spiritual plane of existence – something which we can “see” with our “beyond the physical plane” senses.
As we connect to the Infinite Spirit of God within us, and ask/seek that guidance from within, we tap into this Infinite Creativity which is creating brand new possibilities and opportunities always. Those who say we will be rendered useless are unfamiliar with Infinite Creativity. Look back hundreds and thousands of years in the history of human beings. Question: When was there never evolution occurring (socially, physically, etc)? When was there ever lives who were rendered useless? Now remember, though, technology has never, in all history, been the savior of mankind. The higher mind/ heart-centered learning and evolution guided by the Infinite Spirit of Love – has indeed been the savior of mankind – regardless of how much technology or lack of technology has existed.
5a. One place of interest I would like to live in for a time is the UK. Big reason for me is the awesome National Cycle Network. With me being an avid casual bike rider, that is the place despite the rainy weather. I am curious about the future of the UK and Europe in general. The native population is ageing, becoming more atheistic, and more pessimistic about the future. It’s like they have been taught to hate themselves and everything about their culture and traditions. Then you have a growing population of Muslims.
As the years progress, in the UK as other places, the different cultures will make efforts and some successes at coexisting. It’s like trying to fit more people at the supper table when they weren’t expected. Things get shuffled around, effort is called for, but the world is now this way and no one is exempt from being in the world of today. While there are conflicts, (some at the supper table get upset with having to make more room at the supper table) there are also lessons for every single individual that is alive in the UK, and the Infinite Consciousness of Infinite Love is actively working to help every single person alive in the UK. All the forces at work at all Infinite levels of Consciousness are at work to help all these people who exist there. Sound familiar?
Yes, there will be “butting heads” between people who want to keep life in the UK the way that it never was and never will be. There will be “butting heads” between peoples who want to make life in the UK shape into ideas they hold in their own heads. Sound familiar?
The UK will not be free from the cracking of the eggshell of consciousness, with the new chicks being born. All children of God cannot stay where we were in our awareness and consciousness of Spiritual truth – not even those of us who think we are aware and conscious of Spiritual truth. All of us are being remade in the image and likeness of our maker and our maker is the Infinite Consciousness of Infinite Love. Who among us as a finite human can claim that we are Infinitely Aware of the Infinite connection to Infinite Consciousness? :-)
5b. Europeans overwhelmingly eat pork, drink alcohol, and have casual attitudes towards sexuality and how revealing they dress. What is going to likely happen between the two groups: native Europeans and Islamic newcomers? I hope both of them learn to simply coexist and accept one another.
The absolute need for infinitely diverse circumstances of life, which we all find ourselves in – are what is needed for all the diverse souls that enter into the Earth in order to evolve in our journey of spiritual awareness and learning. Eating, drinking, casual attitudes towards sexuality, revealing dress codes are all manifestations of the different needs and manifestations of the different levels of consciousness of souls.
Look at any one human being, even one’s own self for example, and we find lessons specific to our self and our own learning. Look at any other human being and we find lessons specific to that person that are so foreign to us as to make us think they’re from another planet or they’re literally insane. These are not similar souls but diverse souls, … and not all the same lessons to learn the same principles, but diverse in lessons and diverse in principles. Different foods, different drinks, different attitudes towards sex, different political views, and more and more are all manifestations of the Infinite Creativity of the Divine, for helping all of us to struggle and learn of who we are as a diverse humanity.
This is why our beliefs being different from each other are not as important as what our beliefs motivate us to do to each other. Different attitudes towards drink, food, sex, politics, etc are always going to be different from one person to the next. This is why our most important spiritual lessons are practicing compassion, patience, tolerance, mercy, forgiveness, loving kindness, understanding, and the like – especially with people who are very different from ourselves. (Continued after the July 29, 2019 segment.)
Added July 29, 2019:
Practicing the fruits of the spirit-loving kindness, patience, mercy, forgiveness, tolerance, charity, etc – are not just meant to provide something to do, biding our time, until the day comes that we all believe the same way so that there is peace among us.
It is the opposite – it is the diversity of thought, beliefs, and ways of living that have the purpose of calling us to practice the fruits of the spirit.
It is for the development of the fruits that all the diversity exists. The purpose of diversity is for us to do the work of developing loving kindness, patience, mercy, forgiveness, tolerance, charity, etc – in order to create peace among us. Put another way, the purpose of diversity is to have relationships, environments and circumstances in which the practicing of the fruits becomes the path to finding peace and goodwill towards all men.
(Continued from previously) For myself, my learning has taken me to learn that it is not what is external of ourselves (eating, drinking, clothes) that causes problems (“sins”), but what is internal – those attitudes and feelings within us — the heart and mind, the feelings and judgements, the openness or closed-ness of our own heart and our own mind. There is plenty of open heartedness and openmindedness in society, but there is also plenty of closed heartedness and closedmindedness. It is the open mind that learns more from God. It is the closed mind that stops learning from God. It is the open heart that loves more. It is the closed heart that stops loving.
Choose for yourself, and know that it is the judgement of the Infinite Existence and possibilities which the Infinite Consciousness of God brings forth – that throws us off balance on our spiritual journey – and what we judge becomes a magnet to which we are drawn into, if we refuse to learn what is it like for the soul who we are judging, and instead judge and condemn them. That which we judge and those whom we judge – mirror parts of our own infinite consciousness which we have yet to learn to “Let Go of Judging” as well as that part of ourselves being judged — will come forth if we are needing to learn to let go of judging this aspect, but instead have chosen to only let go if we come face to face with it within ourselves.
Remember, all that exists, exists inside the Infinite Consciousness of God. There is nothing that exists that does not exist inside the INFINITE Consciousness of God. So, those souls we judge, we are blocking out a part of the Infinite Consciousness of God. We need not experience all things on the Earth, nor do we need to create pain and suffering for others, but to judge and condemn others’ lives is to judge and condemn the efforts of God to teach and bring forth growth. We can choose the path we walk – the life we live, but because we are not yet Infinite in our own understanding of the evolution of all life, we cannot take the Infinite Consciousness of God’s place in being a judge over another person’s life or over another person’s circumstances. We cannot judge different possibilities in Infinity with having a human finite understanding of all the different ways to live life.
However, we all have freewill to listen to the guidance of God, and we all can learn from both experiences of 1. listening to the Still, Small Voice of God within our hearts or 2. not listening to the Still, Small Voice of God within our hearts. We can pray for others and send light to others, so that they (and we) can hear the guidance of the Infinite Consciousness of God. And through Infinite Mercy, God can take our “Not listening” experiences and turn them into learning lessons for us.
6. If Donald Trump gets reelected, then what do you see in the Middle East in terms of war and peace? I asked you with my last reading about that. Right now everyone is sort of waiting to see what happens in the US. If Trump gets reelected, then support for Israel will be such that they have carte blanche to keep doing what they have been doing (my hypothesis). If he does get reelected, what are the consequences for the US and the world at large?
Regardless of the political leanings of readers, I will write what I see.
The percentage chance of Donald Trump getting elected is less than 3% in the range of possibilities. It is so low that I’m not going to look into that time line. We are not in that timeline or dimension. The percentage would have to move from 3% to over 50% and the forces in our world are just not there for that to happen. In 2012, I foresaw the Republicans winning in 2016. It was clear. But, look how many people believed Hillary Clinton would win – a shoe in. I’ve foreseen the 2016 winner being a 1-term president for years and there is no “change” to this.
To use a metaphor, (positive to some, negative to some) the door is being bolted shut for that to happen and the only thing that has not happened yet to make it complete is that we haven’t removed our fingers off the bolt knob as we are locking the door.
While that can come across as anti-Trump, if Hillary Clinton had won, I would be saying the same thing, only it would be about Hillary Clinton – and that the Republicans would win in 2020. Whomever won in 2016, both candidates would have been 1-term presidents. Also, regardless of peoples’ feelings about Donald Trump, both sides can truthfully say, that he is someone who got in the game and gave it a shot. Many become the target when they get in the game, but getting in the game is how the game is won (and sometimes lost). No one wins if no one gets in the game. Those who criticize others the most need to throw their hat in, and GET IN THE GAME! Don’t pity those who get in the game and get criticized for their level of play. Pity those who never choose to get in any game. It is one thing to try and then win or lose, but it is another thing to never try.
7. I am interested in getting a glimpse into China and its future as well as how the rest of the world will be impacted by their growing role in global affairs. Will they dominate, become part of a multi-polar world, or will they get old before they become that powerful? Their society is ageing too, more quickly than ours.
They will change much in this century, however, it will be a natural, evolutionary change and not a radical change. Their energy and change comes through different ways than the US and other parts of the world. This works for them. They are a billion people and this force is one that is strong enough through natural evolution to make changes that are right for all the people. This means that we won’t automatically see much change unless we study the country and people in depth. The “controlling” part of some people’s attitude will all but disappear naturally through government officials’ policy to meet the changing times — by the end of this century. Change naturally happens when the older generations (people) die and newer generations (people) are born.
No section of people of the earth “gets old” culturally or socially from physical aging. It is more a shifting of focus. The physical aging process merely adds to the anchoring of the evolution energy which I speak about earlier. They are a dominant group, but the other 6.5 billion people currently elsewhere on the planet have their own intentions on which way to go, also. The Earth is governed by all souls living on it, and the needs of each soul to grow in our/their spiritual awareness.
We will see the individual level of activities there and have the chance to catch quick glances at different parts of their society, but these are small points to consider and like tides in the ocean – will come and go in cycles. On the small time scale, in our lifetime, we will see them solidify their commercial base in their own country. Trade is their best avenue. And their desire to “control” things will only be manifested in the short time scale.
