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.

Changes to “The Sum of Ourselves” 24-hour retreat

My apologies to everyone.  Because of a mistake in how I worded the retreat’s registration and my not listing a registration deadline, I’m faced with moving the retreat to May 4 – 5, 2019 in order to set up a new registration deadline giving everyone more information and time.

This is official.  The April 6-7th weekend retreat will not happen.  Instead we will meet May 4-5, 2019.  Everything else stays the same except now the mid-priced Health Services rooms will be available (2 single beds).

My previous registration information was misleading.  I had listed Registration from 2:30-3:30 on  April 6th.  This was actually “Check-in” time and not registration.  Registration and sign-up had a deadline of March 6th, and has since passed without anyone knowing of its existence.

I apologize for this mistake and I hope this will not create problems for anyone interested.

Please note the few changes below marked with *****.

*******

We think looking at our past lives is like looking into the distant past. But, our past lives are with us all the time. We lived them. We thought, felt and learned through our own previous times of being a person in the Earth. We walked in our own previous shoes. We spoke our own previous languages.  We sat at our own previous tables.  These past lives are our own, and we can learn from them any time we’re willing by simply scraping underneath the thinnest of surfaces.

Bio: Jodie Senkyrik began having psychic experiences growing up, but didn’t begin his spiritual path until his early 20’s during the 1980’s. He began giving clairvoyant readings in 1985, yet broadened his clairvoyant readings with a background in psychology, being trained in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology and having earned an M.A. degree in Transpersonal Psychology in 1993 at John F. Kennedy University’s Graduate School for Holistic Studies.

Jodie has been, and is still, a regular workshop presenter for the A.R.E. in Texas during some of their Spring and Fall retreats since 2001, having given workshops on such topics as The Karmic Connection to the 9-11 Attack, A Psychic View of Love & Death, Psychic Ability in Human Beings, Meditating for Answers, Prayer without Words, Atlantis, the Atlantean Hall of Records, Creating Heaven on Earth, and many others. On the blog are posted 300 plus articles on spiritual and psychic topics. He continues to present regularly at retreats and workshops in the Texas area.

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)

Question on Karma

This is a little off the subject, but in regards to karma we having coming into each incarnation, I have always wondered what happens when a child is adopted? My understanding is that the soul picks its situation based on the parents? M.C.

There are many different factors that are at work in the process of a soul’s incarnating through “parents”.  Our world offers such a variety of experiences.  Sometimes the soul has choices, sometimes the soul has choices made for them.  All of this depends on the lessons the soul needs to learn – including going through any experiences the soul themselves created for others – that which we know as karma.

One pathway which is common for souls who may have taken life in the past, is to seek to help bring forth life, in the present – by giving birth to another soul.  However, with this pathway, it is not always a part of their path to be responsible for the other person during the entire lifetime.  The human adoption process then becomes an avenue, where one woman may give birth – bring forth life – but another couple may raise the child as their own.

The bonds of healing can exist with the birth mother soul which stay with the soul born and the mother soul, while the soul or souls chosen as parents have soul connections to carry forth with raising the child.  This means that all involved have been connected in past lives in various roles and in various degrees.

Because there is such a diversity of experiences in human life, there are also a diverse number of pathways for human adoption to serve as a venue where souls can come together to become a human family.  The key phrase being “diversity of experiences”.  This is why we can feel that we’re family members with those whom we are not blood related.

Of the Soul

Love is of the soul. The soul has both masculine and feminine. Both of these are capable of and regularly incarnate into a physical body. AND! because the soul benefits and grows from the enrichment of different experiences, the masculine and feminine can both incarnate into either the same or opposite gender bodies. We have such a diverse potential within this Earth to manifest and experience that we can create opposite gender experiences in order to develop greater understanding of the human experience.

Hence, why we create gay, lesbian and transgender experiences in our world. The diversity of experiences related to these can help souls learn. This doesn’t mean that being gay, lesbian or transgender will be forced upon a soul (unless karmic law is in effect). It means that each is a viable and useful incarnated experience. It also means that the feminine in a male body and the masculine in a female body is an available Earth option, should one wish to experience it.

Love is of the soul. We can experience love in opposite physical bodies than the gender aspect which manifests. Since love is of the soul, it is possible to love beyond the physical – to the soul. Those we’ve loved in a past life, can still be those we love in the current life. Still, freewill is active for both souls in such a reunion, and this does indeed give chance for either joyful or painful reunions as human beings.

That Worthwhile Deep Within

If you’re wondering what effect government actions will have in the long term, you don’t really need to wait and see. You also don’t need to hang your hopes on promises. We can look at the human race all around the world – not just in the United States – and see the pushback that is happening from people who don’t want human, social and spiritual evolution to occur. The pushback is happening in the form of attempts to revert back to previous states of consciousness and previous states of life.  Peace and cooperation  – not chaos – are products of God’s presence and guidance.  Christ never taught chaos, He taught better things than this.

There are issues and “sicknesses” deep within so many human consciousnesses in the Earth. In fact, one can easily say that we all have issues and illnesses within us. For all of us, these are coming to the surface, becoming visible and even being pseudo-supported by some. The racial, religious, and cultural prejudices all around the world that are now more visible than ever before, are a major part of that which is coming to the surface, having been repressed and buried deep within before now.

There are many that, if possible, would like that these “sicknesses” never came to the surface – that one could hold onto them throughout all time. There are many that think that it is right and just to hate a different culture. There are many that think the only way to have peace and harmony is if everyone is the same – starting with the same skin color, then religious beliefs, then political party, then this, then that. To some degree, no one is completely immune to these thoughts and feelings.

Of course, that argument comes from declaring that love is not the center of our existence and therefore not the center of spiritual law. For some, Love is only an emotion that has little power for healing.

The truth is all of us are the same, and all of us are different. We are the same in that we all – in fact all of life – are spirits of the One God. We are all spirit beings. All life is first a spirit being. All life! That means from the smallest thing that exists to the largest thing that exists – we’re all spirit first.

We are different in that the Infinite Consciousness of God creates Infinitely and not finitely. Infinite Consciousness has created Infinite Possibilities, Infinite forms, Infinite manifestations of Spirit and has given spirits in these Infinite manifestations freewill.

When we choose the path of healing our own issues and illnesses within us, we make a more open path for healing for those that follow us or who may be in our lives.  We open to our own Infinite possibilities, because we open to a greater presence of the Infinite Consciousness.  This changes the status quo within ourselves and within our own environment.

____

Difficult times are ahead. It will be easy to hate – as easy as it comes. It is one of the easiest things to look down upon, to dismiss, to diminish, and to disrespect. It is as easy as it comes to consider others to be less than worthy of respect from us, less than worthy of being afforded dignity and less than worthy of human kindness from us.

It is difficult – it takes sometimes dogged, persistent effort to do that which is worthwhile – to show respect – to show human kindness – to recognize that every soul is equally worthy of all human rights and all compassion and consideration. It is difficult to change the deepest part of our own souls, because we then have to let go of benefits that we think we gained through countless lifetimes and years of being prejudiced and condemning – putting ourselves above others – pushing others down beneath us.

For some of us, it will be impossible to change, because some of us will consider ourselves alone in the world, and having only our own prejudice and contempt of others as our companions. But, with God – the Infinite Consciousness of God, all things are possible. With God, all things can be accomplished. With God, our deepest fears and selfishness, our deepest disregard and contempt for any others can indeed be changed. With God, we can open to the truth that all others are our brothers and sisters in God’s Infinite Consciousness and Spirit for each of us has that Spirit of Oneness within our very being – giving us our very existence – uniting us all at our very core of our self.

With the Infinite Consciousness of God, we are one, and we will find our way out of our selfishness and our illusion of being alone.  As human beings, we can find our way back to being in the Family of Man.  As souls, we can find our way back to being enveloped in Infinite Peace and united again with the Infinite Love of our Infinite Source of Life.

Boomerang Karma

Those of us who recognize and directly experience the spiritual reality of past lives and future lives, know that what we send out there comes back to us. Karma is simply a boomerang. The trash we send out is the trash that returns to us, and we have to clean up. The problems we create for others (and ourselves) are the problems that return to us, and we are responsible for cleaning up. The disasters we create are the disasters that we’re responsible for cleaning up.

So, when we look at others, it is aaaaaaalllllllllwwwwwwwwwwwwaaaaaaaaaaaays! easy to point out the boomerang that they’ll be dealing with in their future lives. But, what good does condemning others do for ourselves? None.

Only when we look at our own lives and clean up the messes in our own life are we fulfilling the task that “Boomerang Karma” calls for. The healing we do in relationships, the resolving of issues within ourselves, and the prayers and meditations for others in need – these things are what cleans up our own boomerang karmic messes.

If our life is screwed up, messed up or we’re dealing with problems in any way at all, then we’ve simply received back the boomerang that we sent out. Even judging ourselves is its own boomerang mess.

We can look at the world and fret, gripe, become angered at all the @$#%^#%& that others are dumping into the Earth – our Earth. But remember, if we’re dealing with @$#%^#%& in our own lives, it means only one thing. This phrase is appropriate in this case – “Let He/She who is without sin, cast the first stone.” We all have heard that phrase and know what it means, because we’ve walked that messy path, also.

We created messes in this world, and we now live a life trying to clean them up. We try any number of acts to help make the world a better place.  We are meditators, activists, pray-ers, light workers and more.  And it pisses us off when we’re trying to clean up our mess and others come along and mess it up again.

Others create messes in this world, and they will be responsible for cleaning up their messes. Like watching children make a mess on the floor, or the carpet, or the walls, or the ceilings, or they set the house on fire, we can remember that there is no mess that cannot be cleaned up.  All things broken can be fixed.   All things demolished can be rebuilt.  Life goes on, and as Christ told Peter after Christ had risen, “You don’t worry about them. I’ll worry about them. You follow me.” Put another way, ‘Helping all souls  everywhere through all time is my job.  Cleaning up your life now is your job.’

It is our own work on our self that transforms the energy of who we are. It is this work that in turn, impacts the Earth. It is this energy that transforms the world. The raising of our energy through inner work, raises the Earth energy, which in turns slowly helps those in lower energy be brought up to higher energy, also.

One could say, we are physicians seeking to heal ourselves of the wounds we’ve inflicted on others and ourselves, and in turn, demonstrate to those who observe us (and learn from observing us), how to heal one’s self of one’s own self-inflicted wounds. The Infinite Consciousness of Infinite Love is the foundation of this path and will carry it all the way through to it’s conclusion, and in a way that no soul shall perish or be left behind. The Infinite Consciousness of God has the Infinite Patience that this job calls for.

Here’s a thought – after souls are finished in the Earth plane – souls have innumerable other greater dimensions to go to and from which to learn. Don’t worry, we have eternity to do this – plenty of time.

Creating Experiences

We are the authors of all the experiences which we go through – as souls. We won’t see this or understand how this can be if we only look at this one life as being all there is to human/soul existance on the Earth. However, we are the authors of all the experiences which we go through.

Consider this more in terms of eternity – the eternal past and the eternal present. If we go back into the past of our soul (this life and beyond this life) we will find when we wrote the beginning of the story of each particular experience. For example, our parents – very few people DON’T have issues with parents, when perceived from the human level of perception. But, looking from the soul’s perspective, one can say that we created or wrote the script in which our parents acted out the parts.

Yes, our parents had and/or have their issues, and in “acting out the parts” they helped solidify our issues. But, if they had chosen to not “act out” those parts, we still would have our script out there ready for someone to come into our life at some time to “act out” the parts that tie into our issues.

So, in actuality, we have issues, imbalances, patterns in our psyche, (whatever we want to call them) within us. We have them when entering into our life, and these issues are of our own creation  during some point within our soul’s existence – including possibly in previous human lives, (but not always a human life as the beginning source.)

Hence, we can see that we are the authors of our own experiences. We created the circumstances by acting out in some other time and place towards someone or something else. This started the ripple that went out into the entire infinite universe for all life to be on the receiving end of that experience in some fashion, … including ourselves. And so the experience of being slapped, or killed, or betrayed, or shunned, or hated, or beaten, … or the experiences of being loved, or welcomed, or accepted, or cared for, or being shown mercy, or forgiven, or being shown patience… all of these experiences are in our lives because we created them for another person or persons, in our past and the ripple of that creation then went out into the entire infinite universe for all to be on the receiving end of that experience in some fashion, … including ourselves.

While this may set the stage for understanding, this by no means is the end of the story of the purpose of the return of these experiences. The purpose of the return of these experiences – the experiences which we created for others to receive from us – is for us to find a different response and create a different experience for others. It is for us to create an experience of response to other persons that comes from the place within that God resides.

It is for us to express this God that resides within our own heart via the fruits of the Spirit. You’ve read this here before. When we respond to experiences with patience or long suffering, kindness or understanding, cooperation or forgiveness, or mercy, or letting go of our judgement/criticism or any of the other Fruits of the Spirit, whether towards others or even towards ourselves – we are bringing a real balance back to our own consciousness.

So many times we don’t bother responding from our heart. Or we give up “this one time.” Or we decide it’s too hard or too late or unnecessary or any other number of our very clever reasons not to use effort to let God guide us in our hearts. (I think of the “given up” notion more for myself.) We may continue the status quo once again creating an experience of pain and suffering for others.

However, in that moment of instant willingness and freewill, when we bring forth mercy or patience, etc, we bring God back into our creating, and healing begins, balance begins, and resolution happens. The new healing and balance with the energy and consciousness of forgiveness or mercy or any of the F’s of the Spirit then becomes the experience we create for others and send out into the infinite universe. In time, again, because creation is happening, we create this for all, including ourselves and we will be on the receiving end of what we create for others.

As we do for others, we do for ourselves. The experience we create for others to experience, we create for ourselves to experience. Some call this Karma. Some call this Creation. It is both. But, it is not law without it also being a living process happening within all life.

******

PS. A World of Peace won’t happen without forgiveness, mercy, and all the Fruits of the Spirit. It is these that bring about the world of Peace. How? As individuals. Once again, if we, as an individual, create a World of Peace for another person or being, we are creating for all. And remember, patience is one of the Fruits of the Spirit, also. It takes patience to create a new world. Just ask Christ.

“Astral City: A Spiritual Journey”

I’ve had requests for the title of the movie, “Astral City”, which I mentioned during a recent retreat/conference at which I attended and spoke.  It chronicles the experiences of Andre Luiz, after his death, and also parallels Echo Bodine’s Out-of-Body experience which she writes of in her book, “Echoes of the Soul”.

The movie is taken from the book of the same name written in 1944 by Francisco Cândido Xavier.  The Wikipedia link:  Astral_City:_A_Spiritual_Journey.  The Youtube preview: Astral City: A Spiritual Journey.

I do recommend watching it.

Freewill vs. Predestination

“…then everything in life is predestined, is this true?” Z.

No.

God gave everyone freewill and this means we can choose, and then change our minds, at any time. No one can take away what God has given us.

A basic simple beginning of understanding prediction can be as follows:

Prediction can  be like having the ability to see that A leads to B, which leads to C, which leads to D, which leads to E, which leads to F, which leads to G, which leads to H, which leads to I, which leads to J, etc., etc.  For example, I can predict that Spring will come after Winter, because that’s our planetary design.

Prediction with individuals comes from the ability to see that if a person went to work 5 days a week for many years, then they are on the path to go to work again.  However, it is still a person’s freewill to quit their job today, and do something else.  Each individual has millions of patterns like this.

Prediction also comes from seeing that if a person is going down a path, and they make certain choices, then certain factors will come into play depending on the decision they make.  For example, if a person chooses to go to college, certain factors and life situations will come into this person’s life.  If they choose not to go to college, different life situations will come into this person’s life.

Prediction also comes from seeing that if we’re going down a certain road of life, to reach a destination in life, and there are warnings on that road of life, saying something like, “Bridge Out Ahead”, and the warnings are ignored because they’re not believed or not understood, certain things (sometimes harmful things) will happen because the road taken has not been changed.  Choosing to smoke cigarettes is an example of the last statement.

Predestination can be a part of life, but only in presenting choices for a person to decide – to act respectfully or disrespectfully, to forgive or not forgive, to be patient or to be impatient, to judge and criticize others, or to be kind and understanding, to cooperate with others or to fight against others, to make someone else’s or one’s own life heaven or to make someone else’s or one’s own life hell, to be selfish or to be unselfish, to choose life or to choose death.  Life situations happen, circumstances happen, but how we respond to them comes from our own freewill.

See, we make decisions everyday and these decisions lead us down different paths.  Interestingly, we’ve made decisions 10,000 years ago that are affecting our life, today.  We’re making decisions today that will affect our life 10,000 years in the future.

The Secret Life of Fear

Once, in giving a presentation about fear, I asked the audience to raise their hands to answer several different questions about who was afraid of what. My last question, of course, was, “Who has a fear of raising their hands to answer questions from a presenter?”

Consider these:

  1. Fear is like a huge pile of dirty dishes. Dirty dishes just sit there in the sink – not moving – not going anywhere – not disappearing – not getting washed – not doing anything. They just sit there staring at you – forever. Until the time comes that we get up and start washing the dishes.
    Fear just sits there, inside us – not moving – not going anywhere – not disappearing – not getting washed – not doing anything – until we get at it and start scrubbing away – cleaning it up – washing it. This is called – “doing the work that needs to be done.”
  2. Sure, it’s possible for us to choose of our own freewill to be afraid for all eternity. Is that how long to hold onto fear – eternity? Who would choose to live in fear for all eternity? Or we can ask God to help us “wash our dishes”.
  3. Fear is not the truth. Caution might be the truth – and is wise to take hold of. Responding might be the truth – and also can be wise to take hold of. But, fear is not the truth.
  4. Fear is the soul’s recognizing a situation where the soul in some form – once before – faced, stumbled, and failed. And as such, God has brought this situation back in that moment, and specifically meant for us to face in that moment under those present circumstances, so that we can find the better response – a response that will also bring God into the moment.
  5. God does not approach us with any criticism, nor judgement in His heart. When calling on Him for help, consider thinking of Him as a best friend, who has no criticism or judgment – only acceptance and loving kindness.
  6. What we fear is more often that which we’ve caused others to fear because of our actions towards them – most often from past lives, but sometimes in the present life. We get to understand the fear we caused, by “walking in their shoes,” and we then get to understand them – and then ourselves and the whys and wherefores of the fear we have.
  7. When we let go of needing others to be afraid of us, we can let go of being afraid of others.

Prejudice of Ages

How silly this country and humanity in general has been with so many years of prejudice against those involved in interracial marriages, same sex marriages, cross-cultural marriages, mixed political marriages, this or that marriage, and on and on and on.

Unlearning prejudice found in any human experience or human arena is a slow process.  The prejudices come from learned fears, from desire to fit in, from the desire to be loved and approved from those who are supposed to love us, and from our own past life experiences with different races and subcultures – whether those past experiences are cooperative or combative.

Many, many, many, many times, the prejudice and hatred comes from past life connections where there are still grudges and resentments towards a particular group or people.  Acts like “raids on groups”, raiding, pillaging and killing in wars, make for many prejudices.  All races and groups have been targeted at some time in some way, and many different groups have been slaves or bought and sold. Sometimes, in human history all that was required to be enslaved was to be defeated in battle.

Many groups have been perceived as second class, or lower class, or lower caste, and these experiences sometimes are hard to go through.  Still others use these experiences to justify their grudges or resentments or even to build new ones.

So, it will take time for prejudice to heal.  Since it can come from very real damage and harm done to each other in the past.  And each person will have to resolve it in their own time within their own heart, mind and soul.  Do you think?  This is also a contributing factor in the Middle Eastern conflicts and in the attack of 9-11.

What is interesting is that there is no one on this planet that has NOT experienced being on the receiving end of prejudice.  Everyone has, whether based on race, religion, gender, financial situation, spiritual belief, disability, weight, physical features, ethnicity, sexual preference, sometimes their job, etc.  And I say this regardless of whether we may see how that possibly could be true “for that other person over there who looks way better off than I am.” (Having this thought is a symptom of prejudice.)

I can go into a room of any number of people and show you how each person has been singled out in at least 3 different ways, just by being who they are.  Women, men, black, white, brown, red, Hispanic, Asian, European, Native American, Christians, Jews, Muslims, tall, short, small, large – no group has been free from being on the receiving end of hatred, disrespect, fear, attack, ridicule, different types of abuse and the like because of their group – even psychics.  Yes, there are groups that have predominately received recent prejudice, but all groups of peoples and different subcultures have received it at some time in the past, and even now in the present.

Prejudice has been the source of much human pain and suffering.  Pain and suffering is something that no human ever escapes.  Jesus Christ didn’t escape it then or now, and Robin Williams didn’t escape it, either.  Pray for all who suffer – whether on this side of the veil or the other.  When we are in pain and suffering, we tend to strike out at whomever we think is the cause.  This is the birth of prejudice.  Pray for all who are in pain.

Demons?

So are you seeing the demons coming out of hell? [From a comment in the “Tribulation…” article]

Be warned.  You’re not going to like my answer.  It’s not the answer you’re wanting.  But, it is the answer that will be presented here.

God calls no soul “demon”.  All beings/souls are equally seen and truly loved by God.  The “demons” you and so many of us are really afraid of are the demons within ourselves that we’ve done nothing to change or heal.  It is these inner demons that we’ve used as a channel to inflict pain and suffering onto others in the past and present – whether in this life and remembered, or in past lives and forgotten.

Change the demons within one’s self through effort, willingness, study, forgiveness and letting go of judgement and in time, you, too, could find yourself no longer calling God’s creations/children, “demons” – whether they are incarnated into a body or not incarnated into a body.

When we’ve faced our own demons, how we see others – including those we’ve labeled with insulting names – will change.

The Edgar Cayce Readings state, “There is good in the worst of us, and there is bad in the best of us.”

Have you ever been labeled with an insulting name by someone else who sees you as “bad” through their negative and hurtful lens?  They may see you as a demon.  If anyone has received insults, it then behooves us to ask ourselves if we’re sure we want to look at other souls, spirits, entities of any kind negatively as being demons, when, at the same time, we haven’t done anything to change the demons we have inside of ourselves.

There are many in the world that are willing to label other life forms or souls, both incarnate and discarnate, with insulting names, and they have been willing through all ages.  If any of us chooses to be one of these many that insults others, then remember, an unwillingness to change the demons within on anyone’s part, points to a continued willingness and desire within to inflict pain and suffering onto others.

“When we insult God’s creations, we’re insulting God.”

“All of us have lapses in our willingness to change ourselves.  It helps to remember that we can get up, dust ourselves off and get back into the ‘transformation through forgiveness’ game.”
