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.

Commencement Address: Do Something Hard to Do

We live in a time where living is difficult.  We live in a time where living is easy.  We live in a time where the Light is coming forth.  We live in a time where darkness is coming forth.  We live in a time where learning is cherished.  We live in a time where ignorance is cherished.

The times of change are upon us. The times to change how we live are upon us. Instead of seeking to have an easy life, we can argue that it’s time to do the hard things in life.

Many of the greatest things of life in our human history have been things that have been hard to do. Meanwhile, many of the worst things of our human history are from people seeking to have easy lives at the expense of others.

***

In looking at our history, the greatest accomplishments and the greatest changes of human life have come as difficult choices – not easy choices.

Instead of looking for something “easy” to do, look for something hard to do.  Not to punish oneself, but to challenge oneself.  Not to keep the old, seemingly easy ways of life, but to create new, challenging ways of living.

Set your sights on a goal, even one that is hard to do, and if it takes your whole life, go for it.

Do something hard and not something just for oneself, because helping only oneself is easy.  Look for something very worthwhile and not just to make one’s own life easy, but to help others, as well.

Do something hard.

Look at today, and feel the challenge to look not for only an easy way out, or an easy this or an easy that, and instead look for that something that you know is hard to do, but better or greater.

Look for that something hard that is right and good and worthwhile, and helps oneself AND can help others, and makes life – not easy – but better because of that hard thing to do.

Do that something that is hard to do.

Look for ways to be more respectful. Look for ways to be kind when we haven’t been before.  Look for these ways.  Look for ways to forgive yourself, and then others for the very same thing. or for different things.

Do that something hard.

Be willing to seek ways to be compassionate to those one doesn’t want to be compassionate towards.

Do something difficult.

The only thing stopping its accomplishment is the not doing of it.  The only thing stopping kindness is not doing of it.  The only thing stopping being patient with another is not doing it.  The only thing stopping forgiving is not doing it.  The only thing stopping showing mercy is not doing it.  The only thing stopping learning and growing is not doing it.  The only thing stopping “loving one another as I love you” is not doing it.

Doing that hard and difficult task has brought all of us to here, today. Doing that difficult task has already brought us to what we’ve accomplished up to now.  We can look back at our lives, and see many things that we’ve accomplished that were hard to accomplish.  Was doing that which was hard to do worthwhile in doing it?

Do something that is hard to do.

Like loving. We think loving is easy. We think all we have to do is find the right person and we’ll love.  We think all we have to do to love someone is to be open to loving and it will fall in place.

But, loving those we don’t love is a hard thing to do. Loving those who we don’t like is a hard thing to do. Loving others as human beings when we’d rather take the easy road to disregard them, dislike them, hate them, disrespect them, insult them, not care about them, or even wish them dead or kill them.

Do something  hard.  Stop disrespecting another.  Stop hating.  Stop insulting.  Stop wishing others dead.

Do that something that is hard.  Stop.

Stopping these things is hard.  Then turn around 180 degrees from hating, disrespecting, and wishing others dead.

Turning around from these things is very hard.

Do that something that is hard to do.  Turn around.

Instead, let love exist as potential within us in the same way that Christ is within us with all His potential and all possibilities when He said, “With God, all things are possible.”   Let God’s eternity of Infinite Love exist for us to hope for that we can one day share.  Let it be the place to start to let tolerance grow inside of us, to let patience with another or others grow inside of us, to practice acceptance of others and the diversity of who we are, to check our own reflex fear, and our instant preconceptions to stop looking at ourselves and others only on the surface of life, and dig deeper into who we are individually and as people.

Do something hard.

Strive for that something that we know in our hearts is absolutely valuable and absolutely worthwhile for ourselves and everyone else.

Do something that’s hard to do.  On purpose.

Live life from the heart instead of from resentment.  Live life with a willingness to forgive someone at a moment’s notice, just for the purpose of forgiving, rather than to gain something.  Live life from a place of showing mercy only for the sake of mercy existing more in the world – rather than to gain something in return.

How many of us feel that what we’ve achieved in life so far has been hard or difficult? How many know others who have gone and done something that is hard to do?

It’s the hard and difficult things in life that we value and that are worthwhile to us. It is the hard things to do that we’re happy about looking back on our lives – raising and loving our family, education, vocations, contributing to our community, helping others, working on changing ourselves for better ways of living. It is the love that we’re glad about as we live life. It is the compassion and healing which we offer to those who’s lives we touch.

How many people do you know who have said on their death beds, “As I lay here dying, I’m so glad that I’ve been able to be bitter and resentful throughout my life, .” or “I’m so glad that I never apologized for any of the suffering and pain I contributed to in other’s lives”?  It doesn’t get said, but it does happen inside many of us and  it’s the easy thing to do.

Do something that’s hard to do. Forgiveness is hard to do.  Sometimes, it is.  Apologizing is hard to do.  Sometimes, it is.  Live from a deeper place in the heart. Think hard on how to help not just ourselves, but all of us, everyone.

Do something that’s hard to do.  It is a decision that one makes.

Not an Easy Thing to Create

It’s a call to give of our time, our resources, our prayers, our thoughts and our heart – to ourselves AND to others – everyone. It’s a call to work at balancing ourselves in all aspects of life – giving even to ourselves when we are the one in need, but not stopping with ourselves but rather going further to give to others equally.

Do something that’s hard, because too often, these hard things don’t get done on the road to wanting only an easy life. But, doing something hard to do, is so often the very thing that is worthwhile to do, and brings the greatest of all riches into our lives.

Finally, another challenge of a prayer to pray – presented to us through the movies –

“God bless us – everyone.”

Q and A’s (Questions 1-7)

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.

Animal Rescue Efforts

“Miracle” (Rescued Oct 2016)

“Tigger” (Rescued Oct 2018)

If you ever wonder if I regret having to ask for help, on my GoFundMe page and Facebook, to care for the animals – the answer is both yes and no.  I run up against my own erroneous thinking that I need to be a man and do it all alone, stand on my own two legs, get a better paying job, to make lots of money and pay for it all by myself…..
And in my mind I hear Dr. Phil saying, “And how’s that thinking working out for you?….. or all other males?…. or all other people?”

But, then another part of me thinks, with regards to my asking, and caring more and more and more for the well-being of these cats and dogs, which I’ve taken in to care for, I remind myself of a very important spiritual lesson – God didn’t create us to need no one. God created us to need each other.  We are designed to need one another. Needing each other is designed into us. For the purpose of coming together, joining together, uniting together, helping each other, relying on each other, leaning on each other, giving and receiving from each other, sharing with each other, loving each other and eventually learning to see ourselves as all being One, together.

“Smart” (Rescued Nov 2011)

I am caring less and less what others think of me, because I’m letting go of being judgemental of others who may judge me… and letting go of judging myself. I work at letting those who think differently, go ahead and think differently, and also accepting that I’m slowly releasing my own erroneous thinking.

And so, I applaud all of you who have joined in on helping with the animals I care for, and other animals, and other rescue centers and other people in need, and other … everything. We’re in this together, learning that more and more we all are fitting into one family – a very big family – a Family of all Life. God bless you.

“Lucy” (Rescued April 2015)

Finally, please, if you’re willing and also able, I’m asking for your help via my GoFundMe page. All the money goes to pay for the animals’ needs.

Just of few of the animals.

Shifting Sands: Predictions, Changes to Predictions, and Creating Experiences

The road which the future unfolds upon is always available for change.  This is because we have freewill to choose our own paths, actions, feelings and thoughts. At any time we can change our minds, heal our hearts, cry out to God for help, and thus change the road we’re going down.

First, … that which we call “good” from the human perspective in our lives is the good that we create and build for both ourselves and others.  That which we call “bad” that enters our lives, many times is from our created experiences in our past lives (and present lives) – that which we created and built for ourselves and others from our past which has returned home to us.  “Good” doesn’t happen by itself.  We must willingly create it – bringing it forth through our own heart-effort to give the experience of being loved to others (and ourselves).  In the same way, “bad” doesn’t happen by itself, either.

Generally speaking, I’m seeing some of the previously predicted darkness for humanity during these times (which I’ve described in past posts as being the years leading to 2026 then coming out of the worst times during the late 2020’s and into the 2030’s, and expanding on to 2038) be as clouds and some breaking up of the clouds. Some of the unbalanced and harm-centered energy being set to manifest is being healed/dissolved/re-integrated at the Earth plane level into the Higher vibration energy.  This is done through bringing forth into the Earth (people’s lives) that which has its source being the Highest Vibration – Love, Kindness, Forgiveness, Patience, Persistence, Oneness, Mercy, and meditation and prayers.

While the times/years of manifestation stated are still the expected time frame which I’ve been seeing, I’m seeing fragments of these times not be as dark as they had been before.

As I’ve said many times beginning with a reading done for the A.R.E. in 2012, then again in my election reading recording of November, 2016, (available on this blog site) in the US arena, Donald Trump is a one-term president. The democrats will win back the House of Reps. in Nov, 2018.  There is no change to this. While I’ve predicted the Affordable Care Act will be eliminated in 2018, the fulfillment or non-fulfillment of this prediction will give some indication of how much success is occurring in healing the energy which would cause these manifestations.  As of this posting, the ACA has not been eliminated even though the current elected people have been trying to end it.  Meanwhile, the intention still is to harm it in some way and 2 months still exist in 2018. This would absolutely be harmful to the lives of many, many people.  Continued effort with meditation and prayers can help with this.

I’m still seeing events happen in different parts of the Earth – individual events which act as anchors of the low-vibration (darker) energy. These events will be devastating to some masses of people. We’ve seen natural and man-made disasters happen in our lifetimes. For the man-made disasters, the mindset and willingness to create these is still dominant.  Still yet to come – in the 2020’s – some of these natural disasters could happen to millions at once, and with super-high death tolls.  Meanwhile, watch for the years 2021-2024, then the end of 2025 and beginning of 2026.  Something is going to happen.  I’m not yet clear on what it is. It’s not as far away as you think.  Remember 2010 & 2011?  That’s the time distance.

We also have the very real potential for man-made serious problems – like disasters in the economy, and even more weather related disasters – of which much of the dark energy will manifest as.  There is not enough centered/balanced/high vibration energy to dissolve these.  To use a metaphor, the ball is now set in motion and will pick up speed through 2019.  We will see a big difference between the start of 2019 and the end of 2019, then again to the end of 2020.  I see greater poverty for a significant and noticeable number of people, loss of economic possibilities for people – in pocket areas.  Getting onto the road to reversing this won’t be successful until 2026.

While it could seem to be unreal or impossible, these are the “end times” – the end of this age of mankind. A new age of mankind begins in 2038 (but not with a noticeable event.)

Looking forward into the next decade, in the US, we will see horrendous conflict between the 2020 president (Democrat) and the Republican Senate. There will be so much animosity – beyond what can be repaired – without great pain and prayers. The venom will be massive – retribution for the animosity towards them during the previous years.   From 2020 to 2024, then diminishing through to 2026.  This will be worse than we’ve ever seen in this US setting.  Sorrow and pain for people across the nation will be the result.  Unfortunately, I see it only changing when people in office are eventually voted out.  Beginning in 2026, newly elected officials will seek to find ways to reestablish working to find common ground.

——-

Now the good news:  Yes, there is good news and real good news.

There is an unrevokable principle in place that those who create the mess and problems in the world and in people’s lives are responsible for cleaning up or fixing the results of this mess. This is part of the real balance in the Spiritual/Physical Universe.  This is another facet of karma that is not usually perceived, because of the fulfillment of karma usually being in future lives.  However, this can be easier to understand if thought of in this way: we don’t’ just go through karma, we are responsible for healing/transforming it, because this process brings us back into the balance and center of the soul’s evolution of full awareness of our Higher Selves and the oneness we have with the Infinite Consciousness of God.  The purpose of karma – the creation principle in action – is to raise the energy vibrations.  We can do that in countless ways when we meet ourselves in the manifestation of the returning home of that experience we created for others – also known as “our karma”.

We can take a look at our own lives and perhaps see areas where we are working to heal, transform and “help clean up”, in order to give us an understanding of how this has been in effect in our own lives, as well.  We seek to create a better world than the worse one we helped create in one or more of our past lives.  The reward is the MASSIVE Joy of bringing light and healing to that part of our own world and that part of ourselves.  This redeeming principle is now, has been and will always be in effect – and fulfilled via one day at a time of the thousands of years yet to come for the purpose of helping all souls.

The Earth is now at a higher vibration, and will increase towards the higher vibrations as we continue our work here.  This is not up for debate, and is happening without regards to any “belief or non-belief”.  The world as we know it now is not the world we will have – but we must create the new world through our spiritual efforts in all areas of life.  And !!!   — one day at a time.

With regards to the fulfillment of this principle of karma, it is somewhat voluntary (because of freewill) as to when we choose to bring forth our own effort to “transform our mistakes”, but it is necessary for our own healing of ourselves and the world we live in. We cannot individually heal without these pockets of karma being unresolved.  Painful?  Yes.  Bringing forth tears at times? Yes – which is why we give each other comfort and compassion, patience and kindness – but this principle and it’s manifestation in our lives brings forth massive and exponential transformation beyond what has ever been on this planet before. Hence, why it also brings forth joy. With this transformation is the awareness of – the MASSIVE Joy and Light which lifts us beyond what we’ve ever known.   Yet…. not happening in full in just one day, or one week, or one year or one decade.

Our own willingness to help, to serve, to contribute, to pray, to meditate, is not just a healing process and evolutionary process for ourselves, but also for the Earth, and vice versa. Our learning, our helping, and our participation in bringing forth manifestations of love – is our evolution and our “salvation” (to use that term. I usually say, “healing”.)

This is what I see right now.

“The experiences we create for others are the experiences we are creating for ourselves.  The heaven or hell we are creating for others, is the heaven or hell we are creating for ourselves – down to including every part of the experience’s ‘DNA’ ”  (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2018, Jodie Senkyrik)

With God – 2000 Years Ago and Today

Photo from markbordeaux.comThe behaviors that are demonstrated today were seen 2000 years ago, as well. The struggle for power meant that there were many in authority who rejected Christ’s teachings so that they could gain in material power. This penchant will increase now, in our days today, and for awhile yet, which I’ve spoken of, because this method of madness has worked in the past, and is believed to be a tactic which will work, again.

Some people’s efforts to attack and destroy their opponents will become louder and louder, because they are coming to the end of their time – not time as in their own lives, but time as in the time of mankind to begin a new age. The collective voices will be the loudest – screaming at the end.  This is a pattern for many of us when we don’t want to give up something that has been what we want.

There are many who seek to war – and war these will do – in whatever arena possible – including governments, today’s social media, all public venues – ever speaking to whomever will listen – to *try* to gain more numbers following them. But, no amount of numbers will change the evolution of mankind being brought about.

As odd as this may sound, the increase of the Light hinders the effort to stay deep in darkness by removing the availability of that which leads to darkness. Put another way, that which leads to darkness is kept from being fed and prevented from being allowed, therefore the impact of the Light has ever greater influence on environs. It is the principle of the raising of vibrations. That which continues to raise vibrations prevents that which would lower vibrations, albeit this transformation is done “one hair at a time.”

We are in the times of which Christ mentioned “Even the Elect (not ‘the elected’) can find themselves being misled.” “It is ever a time to be alert – to not go back to sleep – to practice one’s true spiritual practice – not for vengeance and destruction of one’s hated enemies, but for the fulfillment within our own hearts of the Fruits of God’s Spirit, which will come upon us and come from within us … if we keep on keeping on, drawing from the Infinite Spirit within ourselves for the purpose of bringing forth the best parts of what it means to be a member of this human family and children of One God.

Our vigilance comes from our efforts to be honest with ourselves with doing the best we can each day, and with what we best hold is honest, rather than what is said by anyone, anywhere, at any time, for a self-only agenda. Our effort is for expressing what is deep within us at the core of our spirit which is one with the Infinite Love and Compassion that is Christ knocking at the door to our hearts. Our call is to give to “the poor” that which God has placed within the essence of our souls – our kindness to those who are poor of kindness working to deny it to others, our compassion to those who express little compassion, if any, except to those of their own beliefs, our understanding to those who seek to understand no one but their own kind, to listen to those who hear no one, to forgive those who forgive no one, to be merciful to those who show no mercy.

Yet, the astonishing question is – How in the world can we even begin do this or offer these qualities to people who demonstrate little of these qualities ?!  I will say first that of ourselves we *cannot* do these things.  Alone – there is no way.  We cannot stand alone and think we can do any of these things – alone.  But, as we’ve heard over and over, and can benefit from hearing over and over and over again, reminding us everyday – with God, “all things are possible”. In fact, only with God are these things possible.  But, not just in our heads – but in our hearts – the place of Love, where God lives as Love.

Only with God, can we give mercy to those poor in mercy. Only with God, can we be kind to those who share no kindness with another. With God, we can and do bring forth from within us the Fruits of the Spirit of which Christ said, “It is from their demonstration of these Fruits that you will know my true followers.” Only with God, can we demonstrate the deepest kindness, the most important patience, the understanding, the mercy, the forgiveness, the compassion, the brother/sisterhood of humanity, and more.

…only with God – when we pray, “Lord, teach me the truth.”  “God, make me into the good soil.” “God, help me be honest with myself.” “God, teach me the wisdom and discernment I need, so that I may not mislead my own self down a mistaken road because of my own hatred or bitterness that I may still be trying to change within myself.” “Lord, help me not use my own pain and my own suffering as the weapon that inflicts even more suffering onto yet another person.”

Many look out from our own perspectives and see the world with great amounts of turmoil, selfishness, greed, suffering and violent hatred happening. But, again, with God – we will also be able to see the healing that comes from an individual’s prayer for family, friend, or a stranger, who is suffering. With God, we can find it within ourselves to give the gift of compassion to one other person whose suffering we cannot fathom. With God, we can listen to another person’s stories of their life and pain, and understand that their level of suffering can be much greater than anything we’ve experienced in our life, even if we don’t see theirs.

Only with God, can our hearts and minds be lifted up to greater heights of compassion, love, and unity. With God – is the path where we can honestly say, “I love you.” With God, is when we can be honest with ourselves and say, “I forgive you.” With God, we can give the healing words, “I’m sorry.”  With God, we can look within and even say, “With God, I love myself, too, and I forgive myself, as well.”

With God, we can come to realize that what we see happening in the world, is not the view where we will see God’s continued effort to bring peace to each of us.

There are many people in the world who seek conflict and war, because it serves them, but with God, it is ever true that “With God, within us, we will have that peace which – though we begin by thinking it must be lost to the world – will be reawakened in the world through *us*.”

With God, will come the transformation of the world in which we live – from within us expressed outwardly – like artists creating masterpieces – like gardeners growing green life – and from He who put the stars in the skies and set the heavens in motion.

With God, all is possible – including God being visible in the Earth – through the expression of the Fruits of the Spirit from those of us who keep on keeping on our path of – with God – Love.

Politics !

We’re right in the thick of it. And it has become more serious for many people in today’s times than it has been ever before. There is a spiritual factor unseen in the world, which also is having an influence. But, the spiritual factor is not what one might assume right off.

From the Spiritual perspective, everything requires looking “deeper into the waters” to understand the fullness of the circumstances and happenings in the world. If we only see things “as we always see things”, we are looking at the surface of circumstances. Rarely does the surface give any clues to what is in the depths where the spiritual forces and influences reside.

To begin with, anyone who has listened to my Nov. 2016 election reading which I’ve made available free of charge, here on the blogsite, knows that, contrary to popular beliefs and feelings right or left, “Things are happening the way they’re supposed to happen.”

How can I say this? I say this in this same way that Christ said to Pontuis Pilate as Christ stood waiting for his fate, “You have authority over me, because God gave it to you.”

This is true today just as much as 2000 years ago. The challenge then put to Pontius Pilate as it is put to all of us given authority or power of any kind – “Now, what are you going to do with this authority?”

All souls are given their turn to pursue that which they believe is their opportunity. This means that God holds no soul as more or less deserving to have a chance to pursue Earthly positions of authority or power. Everyone gets their chance – not all in the same lifetime – but, whether in a past life, the present or a future life, at some point, our turn comes up.

Because we tend to see the quality of work others do, and in turn, think we can do a better job, we put it in our soul to pursue “doing that better job”. Whether we’ve built a spiritual foundation within our hearts determines how we do in our turn.  By spiritual foundation, I mean living from that place which can never be touched by politics – the place from within us in which loving kindness, compassion, patience, forgiveness, mercy, understanding, brotherhood, gentleness, honesty, charity, and other fruits of the spirit come.

This spiritual foundation is based on Unselfishness at the deepest core within our very soul – the part of our soul that stands in front of the face of God and says whether we’re ready or not to move forward. We can choose to speak the truth to God of our readiness and desire, and in doing so, speak the truth to ourselves, or we can choose to lie to God and in doing so lie to ourselves.

FYI, God accepts our choice to lie and does not punish us for lying to God or to ourselves. This is because we have the opportunity then to learn from the results of our lying for ourselves. The saying, “God punishes souls by giving them what they want” plays out in this circumstance, although it’s not really punishment and in truth, comes from our own chosen actions.

This is relevant to politics in some obvious ways and some hidden ways. Politics is mostly a 3rd chakra arena – win/lose, fight/flight, control/controlled, and the like. Service for others, however, begins a movement into the 4th chakra. So, there is a potential for blending of the two chakras.

The individual ideals which we hold at the center of our journey into politics can guide us into either focusing on our 4th chakra energy or reverting back into our 3rd chakra energy.

Although politics tends to be viewed as one side against the other side, there are some that view it as trying to find ways to try to bring both sides together. Our ability to step back and observe our self determines which of these two is our self. Is there a middle ground we can meet in?

Some of us hold on to the “us vs. them” paradigm all the way through, but it doesn’t have to be that way. The Bible tells us, “Agree with thine adversary quickly.” This is because of the principles of perception – that we only know our own experiences – having only walked in our own shoes 24/7, 365 days a year for our entire life. We’ve never experienced living anyone else’s life.

This is why that “other” person’s experiences which has led them to develop their own particular paradigm, are relevant and worthy of being considered, and in turn, be recognized as having been learned – FOR THEM – with they having walked in their own shoes all their life. This is how others can “be right” and yet be 180 degrees opposite of our own “being right”.

We gain a “knowing” of our experiences and learning by walking in our own shoes. The other person gains a “knowing” of their experiences and learning by walking in their own shoes. It is the way of things. The heads side of the coin will never be the tail side of the coin and vice versa. But, yet, there is a way to bring both sides of the coin together.

All souls are valid in our path of learning. All of our paths are different and will teach us many different things. We value what we’ve learned more than what we haven’t yet learned, because we “know” it, and in the “knowing” of it, also know it is worthwhile to have learned it.

Christ’s words, “What does it benefit us to gain all we want if we lose our soul in the process?” are relevant in politics. There is a lot of “wanting” and “gain” and “us vs. them” in politics. The challenge is to pursue what we seek, but learn how to stay in the 4th chakra with regards to what we pursue, and hold on to that which is the most important factor involved in this arena – that quality and energy held within the 4th chakra.

As voters rather than someone running for office, our unselfish service can come in the form of praying for others, including our elected officials, or letting go of the “us vs. them” paradigm, while holding on to the awareness that our brotherhood/sisterhood/human-hood is more important than what we seek to gain in the 3rd chakra arena of politics. When we move into the 4th chakra, we move into an arena of service. We can then recognize that with this level of service, everybody can win, because we’re “all in this world together”. In turn, being aware that each opposing “side” holds only 1 part of the whole, and is not the whole by itself.

We have a lot to learn being human. Having walked in our own shoes in life, we have gained an understanding, and can share what we’ve gained, but there are so many other souls’ shoes we haven’t walked in, and can only gain that understanding when we listen to others share the stories of their walking in their own shoes.

PS.  Let there be no mistake – this takes a lot of work – to return ourselves to our spiritual center over and over, each time we stumble and close off our 4th chakra to those “others”.  But, each time we work to stay on or return to our spiritual path – to stay open to all life, we can feel our own return to our path and understand the importance of our efforts.  It is these efforts which will change the world far beyond anything politics can ever offer.
