Where to Start ?
In just a few “seconds”, it will be 2020 !
First, consider this with regard to what many of us are seeing psychically. The entrance into the difficult years of 2021-2026 with what I mention here – will be both somewhat gradual, and somewhat quick. This time period will challenge the whole world, and in many different ways. Some will need saved, some will need help, some will be in positions of being able to save and some will be in positions of being able to help.
Because some of what I discuss will be gradual, some of it won’t be noticed too easily or quickly. This does not mean it isn’t happening. Because some of it will be quick, some will have a more dramatic impact. This doesn’t mean that we can’t do anything about these related problems.
In 2020, how much effort we put into bringing forth very real energy of real love – the love that comes with real effort to try to bring forth kindness and mercy, forgiveness and understanding from within our self – will determine how open we can open the door which will lead to the new age of Man – which is closer than close, but yet will not come by itself if no effort to bring it is put forth.
2020 will be the transition year. It will be a “hinge” year. Not only will certain things of decade of the 2020’s be influenced by the year 2020, but the hinge will “open the door” to 2021-2026 and the events of the next 6 years-some of the most significant (and challenging) of this age of Man. How “open” the “door” is opened is changing. The door is the door to potential progression and/or potential digression depending on the freewill choices every individual makes.
The door hinge is rusty. And it will take sincere effort to open, because this door is the door to our individual, as well as collective Heart – Our Collective Centered Heart, wherein the Infinite Consciousness of God is able to come forth into this world through the love, understanding and compassion we extend to all life – including all human beings – and YES, even all elected officials.
Through the ways we walk on our path in 2020, so will we then be able to extend into 2021-2026 the energy and consciousness which has been built on all years’ efforts leading up to and including the year 2020. Like a stairway, whichever level we are able to achieve in 2020, the next steps/years will be determined and measured by the previous steps/years’ efforts.
No special grace will save us if we ignore the call for Love in our lives both individually and collectively, and to manifest this Love, in the varied available potential forms in this world; the call which we have named ‘spiritual work’ for which humanity is desperate. While we are not called to be individually perfect or species perfect, we are called to be determined and willing to work at bringing forth the better and the best parts of ourselves – even when what we see in others makes us think others are doing the opposite, even when what we see in others, reflects what we consider the worst of humanity.
At this point in human time, it is important to hold in our minds that Christ walked His path of Peace and Willingness to Help as our Brother, even when violence from all groups was erupting around Him. He walked His path of Love, of compassion, of healing, even when hatred surrounded Him. He neither condemned individuals nor governments for their “sins” (mistakes, bad decisions, harmful acts, hateful feelings, etc), but rather offered patience, mercy, forgiveness, long-suffering, and no judgement whatsoever – taking the High road in all ways, which, in turn, began the path of bringing Joy, through transformation, to a weary world. This example is for us to work at, as well, when we face that which is happening in the world today and in the days to come.
In 2020, there will be many conflicts, both loud and visible, and quiet and in secret. (I will get into some of them.) These will be mostly more as social conflict than military conflict, but some will be conflict between the military and civilians, as is happening already.
In 2020, sadly, there will be even more chances even for the elect to stop walking the spiritual path and return to where we were as a people. Therefore, 2020 is a time for us to remember, “Yes, render unto Caesar, that which is Caesar’s” but don’t let it pull us away from or ignore/forget the next part – “to render unto God, that which is God’s.”
Give to God that which is God’s – including mercy, patience, compassion, kindness, long-suffering, and the love which we forget already exists forever in infinite time within our hearts – to the people we, personally, come in contact daily. Give to God that which is Gods – including Willingness – to build brotherhood, sisterhood, understanding, cooperation, charity, any so-far-learned wisdom, Oneness, and an open heart and an open mind in how we respond to the events of this day.
In the coming times, it becomes more significant to know that we have a choice between 2 options – Love or Fear – the 4th chakra or the 3rd chakra – “Loving kindness” or “Fight or Flight”. We cannot tell another person to choose what we, ourselves, haven’t chosen. In addition, our walking our own path of Love – how we relate to other people – can not be determined by or based on other people’s freewill choices about how they conduct their life.
2020 is a year of preparation and transition. Around the world, 2020 is also going to be a year dominating in both verbal dreams and verbal wars. 2020 will be a time of continued seeing the hopeful possibilities, as well as the real dangers in the years and decades ahead. In 2020, we can begin recognizing that the ways of living of the past did, indeed, create the problems of the present, and we need individual effort (building to collective effort) in the present time in order to find new ways of living for the future.
All of Us
The coming 6 years which 2020 will lead us into – 2021-2026 – are of lower vibrations (also considered darker because this vibration of the actions which will be carried out is further away from the Love/Light vibration level.) This energy is the remaining unhealed, yet transformed energy which would have manifested as a physical changing of the Earth’s poles – the Pole Shift (a tilting on its physical axis) which Edgar Cayce predicted if humanity had not done anything to change in the decades which followed his psychic reading. The Pole Shift’s source is a combination of natural evolution in the planet, as well as massive karmic energy which had been waiting to manifest all at once as the physical Pole Shift – but which has since been worked with so it won’t manifest all at once, now.
That remaining supreme turmoil energy being manifested through the Earth and through people, which will be experienced by many people of the Earth in the coming years is NOT the result of any one person. Neither Donald Trump becoming president nor Hillary Clinton, had she become president, is the cause of the problems in the world. Neither Republicans nor Democrats are responsible for the problems of the world – but rather individuals in all walks of life – also known as “All of Us” It is the consciousness of the people of the world, throughout this Age of Man, heretofore unresolved in our subconscious, that gave birth to the leaders in this world, and the movements these leaders represent – not vice versa. The diversity of leaders also is representative of the consciousness of the people.
In the U.S., Donald Trump becoming president is the result of both the fears of things in the world, and the hope of alleviating these fears through victory and control over those things or people perceived as enemies- all third chakra. It is the Collective Social Consciousness of the People of the World afraid of what “others” would do to bring harm that brought forth the “problems” which came from unmanifested consciousness energy waiting to be expressed in people’s lives. This is not just in our time, but also throughout human history. AND the challenges that I speak of are from energy, which has also come from all different times of human history. Blaming others for our own contributions to this rather than acknowledging our own past life involvement, and subsequent challenge to forgive, does not help.
There already has been much work by millions of people to bring forth the higher minds and the energy of the higher minds with the energy of the Centered Heart. This work has been slowly elevating much of the energy in the Earth in preparation of entering into the coming 6 years as a crucible precursor to the next age of Man beginning in 2038. This is the work which has transformed us away from the physical Pole Shift spoken of before.
There has been limited success. We are somewhat successful, but success in this case is not 100%. The potential results are not either black or white – yes or no, 0% or 100%. The amount of energy is based on the level of effort put into holding to the Centered Heart of Infinite Love, and ever returning to a connection to the Consciousness of the Higher Forces.
These referred to “forces” are the forces of practicing patience, and the forces that teach taking the higher road. It is the consciousness which sees the whole human race struggling and in pain, with no side being the right side or the wrong side. All people have within us, all traits, including those we go to war against, regardless of whether we acknowledge it to our self or deny it to our self. This means that every person is equal in potential character to every other person and equally both right and wrong. As the Edgar Cayce Readings said, “There is good in the worst of us, and bad in the best of us.” This also means there is good in the worst elected official, and there is bad in the best elected official. This reality is true for all human beings.
As we make effort to forgive instead of blame, to be understanding instead of criticize and condemn, feel compassion instead of rejection of others, walk the path of long-suffering instead of attack and condemnation, then we are working on bringing higher vibrations into this world which will in turn help heal and resolve the energies of disasters which are physical, social, spiritual, mental, financial, or emotional each ready to manifest.
In this time, all of us are not called to be perfect, but to pour forth our effort to forgive. We are not called to be saints but to try again, and again, and again, when we stumble on our path. We are not called to heal all that needs healed, but rather address today what lands in our laps, today.
There’s a story that describes a child in prayer and the child is simply saying the alphabet over and over. An adult asks why the child is simply saying the alphabet. The child replies, “God already knows what I’m praying for, so the words don’t matter.”
First thing to consider, as many of us know, the act of praying is not the act of reciting words. Even though words are used and reciting can occur, as in saying The Rosary, anyone who prays, knows that it isn’t the words that are the most important part. It is the feelings, determination, effort and “meaning it” within our hearts which are the most important parts – not for trying to “reach” God, but rather to open ourselves up to God.
Second thing to consider, God does not make barriers to love. That’s the same as thinking God makes barriers to God. This is not the purpose, desire or essence of The Infinite Consciousness of Infinite Love who tells us, “Come unto me, and I will come unto you.”
This also means that Death is not a barrier to love or rather Nothing is a barrier to love. It is our own mind and heart that establish barriers to love, and hence the barriers to our loved ones who pass away. It is our beliefs that establish barriers. From our beliefs, we get our motivation. So, the question is, “Are we motivated to pray for our loves ones who have passed away?”
Our Guides and Angels
Each of us has a host of beings on the other side of the veil of death who want to help us in our life here on Earth. But, we can help them, as well.
If we are willing to allow the belief that “with God, all things are possible”, then it is possible to send our love to those who have passed on. And it is possible that they will receive it. In fact, for those who have been able to develop their intuition or psychic ability, we can see the benefit that is made for those on the other side, when we continue to send them our love, throughout our life. They receive the energy of this love and they are helped and strengthened by the love – in similar ways that we are while we are in the Earth. Sending them our love, buoys them, helps them to acclimate to their new surroundings, helps them to further their ability to learn while on the other side, helps them to greater recognize the connection and oneness which we have with each other, and much more.
At the same time, our prayers for them are like for them to stick a finger in an electric prayer plug and absorb the prayer energy which is for them to receive. Prayers for those who have passed, can help them to open their own consciousness to the omnipresent consciousness of the higher forces. This can bring a spiritual healing and consciousness healing in the same way that it would if they were in the Earth when prayers were given for them.
Whether in the Earth or no longer in the Earth, our love sent to another (or others) and our prayers sent for another (or others), are worthwhile and brings forth the “Living Food” which each of us are starved for, to our body, mind, and soul.
“The prayers of a few will save many,” and these many can be anywhere in the Infinite realm of the Infinite Consciousness of God. We can choose to open our minds and our hearts to realms even beyond death, or we can choose to believe that death is too great a barrier – it’s always up to us to decide which beliefs we will select. If we put ourselves in our loved ones shoes, would we want to be on the receiving end of them sending their love beyond death’s illusionary veil? If we were on the other side, would we hope that others care for us enough to pray for us?
Our love and our prayers for those who have passed on, can accomplish a great deal for the well-being of those we still love even though they are no longer with us.
“We select our beliefs from all the beliefs presented to us throughout our life.” (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2019, by Jodie Senkyrik)
“Pray for All Life.” Christ
“Where there is willingness, there are ways. Where there is no willingness, there are no ways.” (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2019, Jodie Senkyrik)
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.

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.
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.”
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.
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.
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.
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.
