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.
We are at a time in our world, with technology, politics, social media and “everything else going on in the world”, where we sometimes don’t know what’s true or what isn’t. Very “loud” conflicts are happening with people on each side claiming the people on the other side are disseminating fake news. The “noise” level is so loud, that it can be very easy to not know what to believe or who to believe.
Now, in a “seeming” change of topic, at last count, there are more than 7.3 billion people on this planet. Of these 7,300,000,000 people, there are no two who are exactly alike. Because we’re different, because we’ve experienced different things in life – all through our life, we, therefore, have experienced different experiences, met different role models, mentors and teachers, felt different feelings, and thought different thoughts about and through all our lives. I mention this, because there are no two people who believe 100% exactly the same in all things of life. So, therefore, all 7.3 billion of us believe different things to be either true or false.
We may not know what is true, but so what. Our own dogged search for the truth via our seeking it from God can be chosen or not chosen per our own freewill. 7.3 billion people believe different things are true. Throughout all of mankind’s history, this has never been the actual source of the problem – beliefs being different. Having different beliefs has always been the way life is, anyway. It’s not a problem, because it’s not the cause of problems. Believing different things are true, is not a problem.
The problem is with how we relate to our beliefs, and therefore, motivate our own actions. In other words, what do we do with our beliefs? What actions do we take regarding our beliefs?
This is where problems arise. With different beliefs, do we choose to bring forth cooperation with others or do we choose to create conflict with others? Do we use our beliefs about what is true or not true to feel an underlying compassion for others or instead an underlying condemning of others? Do we use our beliefs to bring pain and suffering into people’s lives, or do we use our beliefs to motivate us to offer mercy, understanding and tolerance?
The issue is not what we believe, but what we do with our beliefs. Our actions and behaviors – how we relate and respond to others – determines how we walk in this world. It’s possible to believe exactly opposite than someone else, but with both people choosing for themselves to be kind, tolerant and compassionate, there will come to be peace and respect among them. We know people in our lives now, who believe differently than we do, but because they choose to show kindness, respect and patience, we enjoy their company. And there are people in our lives who we may believe so very similar, but yet they choose their behaviors towards others in such a way that we can’t wait to leave the room when they’re in it.
How do we use our beliefs? To help build separation and animosity, or to help build mercy and unity? We can profess to have the highest of beliefs, and even believe that “we know the truth”, but our behaviors and actions will speak more truth than our mind will hold or our mouth will speak. Our behaviors can become so loud, that no one can hear what we profess, anymore.
Actions speak louder than words, and our actions that we demonstrate – loving kindness or condemning judgment – are what shows how we relate to this world full of people. It is truly possible that billions of people can live in peace… and even with different beliefs.
Still, you may believe differently than this, …
and God bless you for it.

The argument has been made that “If extraterrestrials existed, they would let themselves be known”. While this argument can be popular among many, it lacks an understanding of the factors involved and therefore doesn’t give insight into the reason why they don’t. In turn, this argument usually seeks to dismiss any discussion or anyone who looks to go beyond the box of one’s beliefs.
Look at the Earth today, with the current number of nations and the different types of governments. As a whole, look at the conflicts we have between countries. Then look at the conflicts we have within each individual country’s borders. We have many different ideologies that lead to disagreements, and conflicts. We have wars based on selfish efforts to overpower others for one’s own agenda. We have many organizations and groups that have their own agendas based on affecting others’ lives according to the most powerful groups decisions. This is the very real situation on the whole Earth.
No country, government or group is immune to this or free from some nations, groups or factions displaying this behavior or other efforts made to gain control or have power over someone else. As long as there are individuals and governments who seek their own agendas over the good of all, this will happen. We are very aware of this here in the U.S. since we’ve seen it play out in our own society.
Take a look at the technological leaps we’ve made in the last 100 years. We’ve gained nuclear power, computer technology, cellular phones, and the list goes on almost forever. None of these have “saved” mankind of been made to be free from the agendas of those who greedily seek financial or political power over others. Instead technology still also gets used to serve the quest for greater power and more deadly weapons. We can see examples where the hunger for more power and weapons grows still.
In addition, the craving for energy sources is great as well. We have over 7 billion people on the planet and will have 8 billion in a decade. We’ll move towards 9 billion after that. Looking down the road, our energy needs will be way more that they are today. The effort to get that energy to sell to consumers will be greater, also.
What do you think will happen when another (albeit, FRIENDLY) civilization comes forth that has technology and energy sources far more useful or powerful than our own?
In general, each country, each nation, each governing body, each corporation, each industry will be clambering for the technology and energy sources. On the whole, with current human thinking, the clamor and acquisition for the best technology means making the most money. With current human thinking, the race to get the energy sources ET’s have won’t bring different people’s into cooperation, but rather, more likely into more fighting. That is what is happening now. The level of technology and energy which non-Earth civilizations would bring – would trigger even greater conflict and even worse wars, because the fighting for these would continue. After all, wars have been the ways for many to accomplish getting what one wants, in the past. The motto, “Use what works.” is still alive on this planet.
Right now, the effort to get the technology and energy wouldn’t unite humans. Look at what nuclear capability brought. It did not unite peoples. Look at what computer technology has brought. There are still great imbalances among the different nations of the world – and how to disseminate and control that technology. Look at oil, electricity and the like. The struggle among humans for power over others still goes on even with the advances in technology and energy.
Those that are from other planets, or rather, those with benevolent intentions from other planets, don’t seek to get in the middle of the conflicts we have here on Earth. They know that their technologies and energies could lead to even greater conflict with the tug-o-wars that would happen. Governments would demand their share of technologies in the name of “keeping the balance of power” with many going to war to maintain this balance. Even greater wars than we’ve ever had, could happen.
Greater technologies will never be what saves humankind from our self and our own selfishness. We have much evolution to go through, yet. We can only be that which, and who, we are. Currently, all across the planet, we are still the humans that we are.
The day is coming that people from other planets make their presence known publicly. But, today, the human race as a whole is not where we need to be in order to avoid making a conflictual situation even worse.
No benevolent race of beings wants their arrival to destroy the people they come to “visit”. The human race, with its conflictual behaviors, and examples in history of the human drive to conquer rather than coexist, plus today’s examples of abusive behaviors to life here on Earth – and our not having the full collective will to stop the abuse – all point to this time in our lives not being when they should make themselves known.
Until that day comes, they may make themselves known to individuals or to small groups. They may make themselves known in secret. They may make themselves known as rumors and half-believed stories. They may make themselves known in ways that only a few believe are real. But, much has to happen among the human race before they make themselves known publicly to all people and all nations as visitors from another star system.

Because I’ve been so busy and haven’t had any opportunities – that’s why I haven’t gotten my 2016 predictions up yet.
I don’t see ***a lot*** of change happening on a Global scale comparing 2015 to 2016. By this I mean, I don’t see many major events making large changes from what we have in 2015. A few – but not many.
What I do see for 2016 more often is a continuation of that which has already been brought forth in 2015.
In general, the World’s economy will overall stay steady as she goes. The economy at the beginning of 2016 will pretty much be where we are at the end of 2016. However, there will be some economic problems or scares related to Europe, up and down, but ending at a stable place at the end of 2016.
India’s economy is still slowly growing and I see it continue to grow in 2016. China’s economy, too, will grow, but not as strong as India. Although, we won’t get any word of it, the country with the initials, NK – I see their economy getting worse. Sad indeed. The citizens there will suffer. The citizens of NK need our prayers, as they always have. The leader(s) don’t see a need to do anything about it.
Russia’s economy will fluctuate some because of their ties with Europe and Asia both. They’re invested in the countries around them, as well as their own. Some of their “investments” in other countries will bring bad results.
For the most part, except for the continued warring, the economies of the Middle East are stable, because they’re based on the sale of oil in the regions. Moving away from oil in any way will trigger some fluctuation, but in 2016 I don’t see any major disasters for any countries based on oil.
The US economy will continue as is it in 2015. At the end of Spring, 2016, I see an announcement from Washington that will help boost the economy more, even.
A Presidential Year in the US
As of December 29, 2015, a total of 1,458 candidates had filed a Statement of Candidacy with the Federal Election Commission. No, that’s not a typo. 1,458. That’s the total of all party candidates, independent. write-in, and non-affiliated candidates. Some of these were “meant as jokes”, but the majority are real people. There will not be 1,458 names on the ballots, because not all candidates register or meet the requirements to be on the ballots in all states.
As we get closer to the November, 2016 elections, we will see more and more what we can term as -“bizarre behavior” in our government officials. It’s hard to describe what it will be, but that word – “bizarre” – will be used by many.
What I see is that the diversity of opinions and beliefs in the U.S. can do nothing but remain the status quo. I’m seeing no success by any candidate in unifying the country. Every person who has their own opinions and beliefs thinks they’re opinions are right and the other people need to wake up to it. With this way of thinking, there is no middle ground where people are willing to come together.
I see extremism in American politics being the theme of the November, 2016 campaign trail.
The economy for the US will stay stable and doing well. The gasoline prices will remain at a lower level, but look for them starting to inch up around the end of the summer. I’m seeing a “flash” of an average price around $2.25 being the high by the end of the year. This will be an average with some areas of the nation being only slightly higher. What I’m also seeing is how volatile this price is – moved by human consciousness which moves like flocks of birds in the sky.
I’m seeing several medical breakthroughs announced in 2016. These will get little press time. What is getting press will be several more mass shootings happening sometime around May. Prayers can help to curb, minimize and even stop some of these shootings.
Overall, 2016 won’t be a “great” year for the Midwest large-scale farming or the US car industry. Although starting strong throughout the spring, midsummer will bring downward trends and struggles.
I see the immigration issue in the US as being a mud wrestling pit. There is no clarity and cleanliness to this issue. The politics of this issue will increase the separation of the divided camps. I see no worthwhile progress, just running for office dictating what is said and done. Congress will have another year of passing a low amount of legislation.
The economy will be good in general and overall. Food prices won’t increase much. Local farms will continue to serve their local customers. The drought will hit somewhat, but not as bad as in the past (in general. Different states will have different levels of it hitting.)
I see Africa struggling with similar issues as 2015. I see areas where government officials ignore the needs of the citizens in need, illnesses and diseases getting a toe hold.
I also see other nations reaching out to help African nations and this will keep Africa’s problems from getting too much worse – it won’t remove or solve the problems, but it will help it from getting much worse. A few areas will have serious problems.
Europe’s nation-cooperation will become more a stormy struggle and will require a great deal of hard work. Some of that hard work will come in 2016. The Syrian refugee issues will still be a major issue through the 1st half of 2016. The hugely vast majority of refugees will come to be seen as good citizens in the years ahead. But, it will also be years before the stigma is worn away.
The Middle East
I see an optimistic announcement coming from Washington sometime near the end of spring to mid-summer that a breakthrough has come in negotiations for better cooperation and acceptance among nations in the Middle East. This will be an uneasy breakthrough – and will come from a “compromise” – the definition of this compromise being “when both sides are equally dissatisfied with the results.”
Australia’s economy will not gain but will not lose much either. It is relatively active, but won’t increase, even with the incentives brought in. The problem is the vast amount of foreign investments are going to wait and see what happens, rather than take an aggressive or optimistic approach for 2016. On the plus side, the economy won’t lose that much because of it. Were foreign investments to take a more aggressive approach in vast numbers, Australia’s economy would grow.
Meanwhile, the drought will continue through 2016, as well. I see more potential for fires. Even with this happening, I see Sydney continuing in positive and growing ways. The energy of the city will be more celebratory than discouraging.
They will continue with some major earthquakes in the same old areas – mostly western S.A. Mudslides will accompany the earthquakes. The differences between 2015 and 2016 in so many areas of comment will be almost unnoticeable, except in Southwest S.A. which has a potential large destructive event which would be reported in world news. Prayers for this area will bring the destruction down to a small event – hardly worth mentioning and therefore not by news agencies.
The Pope will be more active in the 1st half of 2016, continuing to be in the public eye, but will stay more close to Rome in the 2nd half with much less visibility and press. His speeches will focus mostly on the poor, needy and suffering people in the world – some about the refugees. His messages will carry some sternness towards world leaders for the recalcitrance towards compassion and helpfulness of many nations’ leaders.
While the world will continue to experience natural disasters, I’m not seeing a hugely world event in 2016. The 2nd of 3 events I saw for August, 2015 has been broken up into smaller, better handled events over a number of areas, including what I think is deep water earthquakes off the coast of N.W Africa. If this does happen as I’m seeing it, it will be in the same area near where the southern tip of Atlantis existed over 12,000 to 200,000 years ago.
Because of the lower fuel costs, there will be less incentives for automakers to proceed with more efficient vehicle production. However, the research into electric vehicles will continue – especially in Japan. In the years ahead, the progress made in Japan, in the electric vehicle batteries will lead the industry, while American manufacturers will do more observing than research. The Tesla company will have some improvements, but Japan’s research is still ahead. Japan’s intention is to move the auto industry further into the electric vehicle direction by 2020. They see the China market – with it’s current pollution problems – and envision Japan’s cars as being a solution for China’s problems along that line. This is in actuality a positive move and will put them ahead of the game again, leaving the American manufacturers playing catch-up in electric vehicles as a solution. The growing China economy and growing spending power, plus China’s growing numbers of younger car buyers will be very open to electric vehicles. There will be a push for this to happen in 2019 and 2020, but will lessen going into 2021-2023. The focus during 21-23 will be on trying to come up with the next generation of technology for electric cars.
At the same time, during these years gas powered vehicles will still have the dominate share of the market. Unfortunately, for American car manufacturers, they are looking to much to the present and past, while Japan’s are looking more to the future.
Medicine and Medical Care
We won’t see much change over all from 2015 to 2016. A few unmentioned breakthroughs in medicine will be announced in a few medical journals. The controversies with vaccines will continue with the same arguments happening on both sides, but little pursuit to solidify any deeper insight or understanding of vaccines and autism. If more medical research were to happen in the field, more would be revealed that hasn’t been understood before. Currently, the status quo is pursued by pharmaceutical industries and the medical community (which doesn’t have research to say anything else.) The opposition to vaccines won’t go away soon, and may get louder until the medical community starts asking more questions about what is possible with vaccines and autism. Research is happening, but only in small pockets and effort is made more to ignore it.
Update: A New Energy
A new type of energy which I’ve been seeing coming into our lives within the next few decades is being delayed. The person I foresaw as spearheading the research is taking a longer approach in his research and therefore could add another 7-8 years before he finally develops his theories. The delay may only move the completion of the research into working models from 2045 or so, to 2050-2052. This also will change the timeline for the world’s beginning to make welcome contact with extraterrestrials, who, more than anything else, are waiting for humans to develop our own technologies to help the planet – technologies in energy that will move us away from polluting, non-sustainable energy sources.
The Spring of 2016 will see a bountiful harvest of local producing small farms. The weather from 2015-2016 will help bring water to the farms. Even though flooded, many areas will benefit from the water for food crops. As mentioned earlier, the large-scale farming operations will have trouble from the same weather. The small farms can recover faster.
2017 is different.
Take a look at the world we live in. In looking at the world, look at what human beings’ pursuit of education has offered the world. At the same time, look at what people’s lack of the pursuit of education – ignorance – has offered the world. Which state of the mind has offered the best and which has offered the worst for mankind?
There are many that will criticize both – and in doing so, seek to justify their own position. One might easily argue that it is education that created the atomic bomb and put the whole world in jeopardy. One might easily argue that it is education that created weapons of destruction, which led to terrorism. One might equally argue that this or that particular ignorance is the cause of this or that failure in the world.
But, it is ignorance that makes all these arguments. It is ignorance that takes education and shapes it into tools to serve ignorance. It is the ignorance in people that look at technology and think different technologies are either good or bad, instead of seeing that deeper within people’s hearts and minds that use technology lies the motivation for how technology is used – for good or for bad. It is also ignorance that says that this or that shortfall is the cause of a certain problem that the world faces.
The greater ignorance of which I speak is the ignorance of all of humanity being one family. I speak of the ignorance that we are all brothers and sisters. This ignorance leads people to further their beliefs of separation based on subjective measurements – like where a person was born, or what color skin a person has, or what religion a person chooses.
While some may think these factors are important, they simply are looking at the surface measurements – which change as rapidly as time. The boundaries of countries have changed throughout time and will continue, for all countries – all – in time. The differences of the pigment colors in the skin are superficial, at best, and comparable to what size feet a person has, at worst. Can you imagine if we chose our cultures and groups based on the size of a person’s foot? or whether they have freckles? or if they’re left handed or right? or if they gesture with their hands when they talk? In addition, the use of religious beliefs to separate different groups of people totally defeats the purpose of religious beliefs, which have been meant to help unify people, and not separate people. Many people who have educated themselves on many religions see the vast number of similarities of religious principles. The people who haven’t, see much less – the surface.
Education leads a person to examine deeper than the surface. Ignorance leads a person to believe only what they see or experience on the surface. Education takes work. Ignorance is easy. This is why we find it so easy to choose ignorance.
We all think that we choose education, because we’ve been to school. Yet, schools aren’t exactly known to teach only truth – more often it is what is accepted in that particular moment in time. To see this, we only need to compare what specifically was taught in schools 500 years ago, and what is specifically taught in schools, today. Then looking further, compare what is specifically taught today, to what will be taught in schools 500 years from now. (Don’t be fooled by the argument of ignorance saying, “We don’t know what will be taught in schools 500 years from now.” Anyone who looks deeper than the surface can come up with some understanding of what the future holds by looking at how education evolves and progresses.)
Beware of Ignorance. We all have ignorance of some type within us. All of us. There is only one way to move away from ignorance – to continue to look deeper into all things – including our own hearts, minds and souls – educating ourselves throughout our entire lives – learning more about our own humanness, our own self, each other, what life is really meant to be about, how to enrich our own minds and hearts, how to interact in the Earth in better ways, how to love, forgive and join with others, how to move beyond our own chosen prison bars, and how to expand ourselves and the planet we live on.
The alternative is ignorance of ourselves, of our own hearts, our own minds, our own souls and our world – hearts, minds, souls and a world which, with ignorance, will shrink and eventually die from a starvation of life and growth.
To continue to learn requires choosing to learn more. Learning requires informing ourselves and seeking out that which is beyond our current “paradigm” of understanding. To learn and grow requires seeking beyond the surface of what we think is both true and false to test the validity of our beliefs. To fear to go beyond our own beliefs leads to ignorance.
Everyone is inspired, enlivened, and enriched by something. Find what inspires, enlivens and enriches. It will lead to knowing one’s self in ever deeper ways.
