Q-A: Truth vs Lies – What Fruit from What Tree?

I received this [conspiracy] E-mail [message] a couple of days ago… which you may have as well, & I’m overwhelmed at the specific info it entails. … This may or may not resonate with your intel, but have a look.” S.S.

My response regarding what the conspiracy email message says…..

Everyone of us, has our God-given freewill to choose our own path, our own beliefs, and our own choices about participation to learn and grow. This includes our choosing our own struggle with discerning truth and lies. Of our own freewill, we can even choose to be honest —— with ourselves and others – or we can choose to lie and mislead others and ourselves.

Yet, stepping back and looking objectively, when we consider the intentions or “agendas” of others, we can understand that every soul has both good and bad within us. We have both selfishness and unselfishness in us. As Edgar Cayce said in one of his readings, “There is good in the worst of us, and there is bad in the best of us.” There is no situation, circumstance, vocation, organization or anything where this is NOT the case. Everywhere there are human beings – souls – Edgar Cayce’s statement is true. No one is all good or all bad.

This principle of human character includes those people who have chosen to go into public service – our elected officials – who are people – souls – who have chosen this path (for many thousands of reasons,) and this truth does not change within them just because they disagree with each other and sometimes ourselves…. or just because they get accused and blamed – in other words, ‘demonized’.

There is no escaping the fact that we are all human beings, and they are all human beings, no matter how many times we humanly demonize these human beings inside our own human heads. They are people who experience all the feelings and emotions, ups and downs that all people experience. And there is bad in the best person who has chosen to be an elected official. There is good in the worst person who has chosen to be an elected official. —- As I said, there is good in the worst of people, and there is bad in the best of people.

When it comes time to decide who we trust, we must recognize this duality within ourselves, first. We have both good and bad within our self. At the same time, we must face that where trust is concerned, we do the best we can at figuring out who to trust and how to trust. And we don’t always get it right. If we try again, … and again and again, we can learn from our mistakes – whether it’s ourselves who bring both good and bad, or another person who brings both good and bad.

Because this principle of character is true, no one person is all trustworthy and no one person is all untrustworthy. Therefore, we must recognize that learning about trusting is a learning path only, and never a path of all-knowing who to trust and all-knowing who to not trust.

In our world, now, there are many that want us to buy into their version of the horrors of humanity and their version of the evils of the world, that they are willing to sell to us, with their intending us to follow their instruction on how to save ourselves from “All those others” who they claim “are the evil ones.”

It is very, very easy to sell fear, horror and evil. It is very, very easy to find ourselves overwhelmed, and then believe their claims of the horrors, which they tell us they alone can save us from – when they then tell us, they alone should be trusted.

Even if we are on any type of spiritual learning path, it is easy to be pulled away from the Truth which Christ teaches, because those who sell the story of the evils of others, yell loudly and scream often. They tell us that they alone know what is going on with the evils of the world, and they alone know who is at the center of the evil.

But yet, at the same time, Christ teaches Truth with a soft voice which quiets fear and turns away wrath, which makes us to lie down in green pastures and leads us beside still waters – from the place of loving kindness. We can ask ourselves, is there a stillness or kindness in those that sell their version of horrors and fears?

Christ teaches from patience and from compassion. Does anyone find patience and compassion in the messages meant to further demonize, or warn others to fear the “evil people” which they selectively chose for us?

Christ teaches from forgiveness and mercy. Does anyone find forgiveness and mercy in the writings of those who want us to follow their version of their fear reality and their version of their “secret truth”?

Does anyone find support for mankind’s brotherhood, encouragement for God’s Unending Acceptance and Love, or help with God’s unity and understanding in the writings that tell us that we should be afraid of the people who they tell us to?

If we find no love, no forgiveness, no mercy, no compassion, no patience, no kindness, no brotherhood, no understanding towards others, no support, no courage, no unity with Life and with other human beings, in these writings, or what they tell us, then Christ is not the source of what they offer, nor does He have any connection with it.

They live from triggering adrenaline by their words, selling panic and worry, and marketing fear, for the purpose of bringing harm and abuse, for their own gain. They will sell their panic, worry and fear to anyone who tends to have little interest in seeking God’s Truth, or who does not care about what Christ has to offer. They will sell themselves as “savior”, and claim only they have “truth”.

The Edgar Cayce readings will always tell us that there is good in the worst of us, and bad in the best of us. This reality helps us to see that all of us are equal in our struggles and challenges of being human, and also equal in the eyes of God, who Loves us without reservation – and without even thinking twice about it – all of us equally regardless of how many times we stumble and how great we create a mess in the world.

Eventually, we come to realize that we have the freewill to choose which we act on – which we decide to bring into the world – the good or the bad, the selfish or the unselfish. We then step forth in doing the best we can with bringing forth our choices.

In the same way, we have freewill to choose what to bring into the world with regards to: fear or love. The Light offers kindness, compassion, encouragement, forgiveness, mercy – this FRUIT from the TREE of Christ’s teachings of love, kindness, compassion, forgiveness, brotherhood, courage, faith and the like. Those who peddle fear offer fruit from the tree of fear: separation, isolation, hatred, anger, abuse, harm, confusion, darkness and despair – for these are what grow from the seeds of the fear being sold.

What do we then choose to give to others? What do we then choose to give to those we love? From what tree do we choose to give fruit? There are many of us souls who will choose – of our own freewill – fear and all that grows from this fear. There are many of us souls who will choose – of our own freewill – love and all that grows from love. But, we cannot choose both at the same time. We cannot choose both good and bad at the same time.

We choose day or we choose night. We choose light or we choose the dark. And we choose LIFE or we choose DEATH. We choose Love or we choose fear. But, we choose. And, we choose every single day. And we choose every single hour and minute and second.

We are called to learn, as best we can, what Christ offers. We are called further to try to put the seeds of the Tree of Love within our hearts, so that we can bring forth the fruit which is kindness, compassion, patience, courage, faith, forgiveness, brotherhood, courage and more. If we don’t know what Christ offers, we need only ask Christ directly, “Lord, what do you offer me – me, who is your brother and sister?”

Who do we want as our savior?

Choose.

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.

Falling Flat on Our Faces

Even though no one ever wants to do this – it’s embarrassing in front of others – it reduces our self-view – it gives us even one more chance to belittle ourselves – etc., etc., etc., it also has its good points.  Falling flat on our face has good points, if we look at it from a perspective of being on a spiritual path.

There are real benefits, or rather real things to learn with falling flat on our face.

  1. The experience gives us a very clear view from the inside out just exactly how it is for others who go through the “Falling flat on our face” experience.
    • This is probably the most important reason of all, because it helps us to experience what it is like to be a human being.  Human beings fall on our faces all the time – even with the act of walking a spiritual path.  While we talk the talk of “walking in someone else’s shoes”, the experience of FFOOF, or FFOYF (Falling Flat on Your Face) puts our feet in the shoes.
  2. The FFOOF experience helps us to see our fellow human beings “eye-to-eye”, instead of being “above them” (or below them).  All humans have all the qualities available to all humans.  (Remember that.)  Seeing ourselves and others “eye-to-eye” not only puts us on the same footing, but can actually show us that we’re bonded together among our fellow humans with the fact that we all have human experiences.  Human beings are alike, no matter where you go.  This includes the having of the FFOOF experience.
  3. The FFOOF experience can help us restart at “Go”, instead of pulling the “Go to Jail” card (in Monopoly).  When we’ve been throwing ourselves off balance with a skewed perspective of ourselves, (thinking we’re all “spiritual” and stuff) we can start over by once again, being human.  There is a phrase somewhere in the Edgar Cayce Readings that states, “God loves a soul that’s willing to start over.”
  4. The FFOOF experience allows us the chance to laugh at ourselves, while we dust ourselves off, and try again.  If we actually do have a sense of humor, we can get the best material for laughs by looking at ourselves when we puff ourselves up.  Human nature is the best place to go to get a good laugh.
  5. To learn to give ourselves a break.  Many of us beat ourselves up – a lot!  And we do so thinking that it’s justified and that we should beat ourselves up.  (Just be careful not to over do it.  If we’re going to beat ourselves up, we need to do it just the right amount – not too much and not too little – just the right amount of beating ourselves up.)  Once more, lesson #5 is “to give ourselves a break”.  We have eternity to accomplish it all.  Eternity.
  6. Okay, I’ll say it before someone else does.  Humility.  Put another way – eating humble pie.

I’m sure there are many more reasons why FFOOF is an opportunity to learn and grow… and laugh.  These are just a few.  For anyone who acknowledges that they are on a spiritual path, don’t try to avoid the FFOOF experience at all costs.  It’s meant to teach, and we’re meant to learn.  When we try to place ourselves above others, we throw ourselves off balance.  Thank God we have the FFOOF experience to help us back to our place of equality as a human being among all human beings.

PS.  Having Eternity to do something or figure something out can be very helpful.

2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

Do you think the agenda 21, well,now agenda 2030, is a bad thing? people are going around saying that its an evil plan to take away our rights and will eventually lead to killing off over 90% of the population. thoughts please.  T.

That which you’re referring to is at https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/post2015/transformingourworld
The people who are saying what you’re repeating have as their basic premise and belief that ‘people are bad’, and that ‘we should believe the worst about people.’ This is the message these people are giving out. If you believe the same way they do, then believe what they say.
But, for me and mine, we will believe in and follow the Living God. God created us from the substance which God, Him/Herself, is made of. We are parts of God. What they say about people, they must believe about God, also.
You can decide what you believe. I believe the opposite of what they believe. Remember, there were people who spoke the worst about Christ, also – a person who loved and demonstrated love to such a degree that people’s lives have been changed just by touching the hem of his clothing. Still, they said horrible things about Him, because their message was “People are bad.” and “believe the worst about people.”
Now, it’s up to you to decide what you want to believe, but I would suggest that you look around at the people in your life.  Do they reflect the worst things in life or do they have hope for the future, and strive to do their best as much as possible to add to a better future?  And you, what do you reflect?  There is your answer.
