I was wondering what you thought about Democrats retaking control of the House. N.F.
There are many levels and aspects to this event. Some aspects are progressive and some are regressive.
It is progressive in that it can help people to witness the strength and accomplishments which come from joining together. When we join, we become strong. When we find common ground, when we seek to “meet in the middle”, we can accomplish much more than we would even imagine. When we seek to cooperate with each other, we can accomplish so much more.
It is regressive, in that the win moves people to believe that politics, or rather what some think of as “the right politics” and “the right people” can save the world. This isn’t a truth, because the real issue is not who is the correct person to elect, or what is the better political party, but rather, what is in the hearts and minds of the people that are seeking the positions? Do they have the heart and mind to serve others, or is their heart and mind set to serve only a few. This inner state can be in any person and in any political party.
In the Edgar Cayce readings is a statement pointing out a truth about human beings. There is good in the worst of us, and there is bad in the best of us. Every one of us humans has a burden to carry and a challenge of character within ourselves to face.
All of these points are relevant to the Democrats retaking control of the House of Representatives in the 2018 mid-term elections. In this moment in time, very earnest people are looking at all the factors and issues related to humanity in the Earth. Some are pointing out one set of issues and factors with which they are familiar, and some are pointing out the opposite set of issues and factors with which they are familiar.
This event can be compared to Jesus standing in front of Pontius Pilate and saying, “You have authority… because God gave it to you.” The question then for everyone chosen is “Now, what are you going to do with this authority?”
Everyone deserves a chance to throw their hat in the ring, and see if they can help make the world a better place than when they came into it. The diversity of opinions and thought which we have and which shows itself in the political arena in the US, offers the potential for much greater to be accomplished than if we all thought and believed the same way.
Pity the nation, organization or group where all its citizens or members believed exactly the same way. No growth would happen. No challenging of ideas would happen. No deeper examinations would happen. No one would look beyond the surface beliefs and understanding. No one would expand on the single ideas that would be in place. No evolution, no questioning and no creative inspiration would ever take place.
While we may hold to one political party or the other, for every member of the Democrat Party, there is an inner Republican within them. For every member of the Republican Party, there is an inner Democrat within them. Yes, sometimes these are unconscious even to ourselves, but existing nevertheless. For every Yin, there is an inner Yang. For every Yang, there is an inner Yin. For every male, there is an inner feminine and for every woman, there is an inner masculine. There is no getting around this. It is the truth of consciousness for all life. The Infinite Spirit of the God has both masculine and feminine, and this spirit exists in the same way within us all regardless of which visible form we demonstrate.
Finally, we are at a time where there are important issues in this moment. I see a need for the people who elected Democrats as their representatives to also join in on the pursuing of the ideas and ideals that are sought to come forth. Ultimately, progressive ideas will only come from effort by the citizens who manifest their effort – and not by the elected officials alone. 450 or so people can’t affect the US by themselves that much, but 300,000,000 can. It is the spirit within the 300,000,000 (even if that spirit is in disagreement) as to where the 450 get their direction and strength.
What do I think? I think and I see that we have the opportunity to choose selfishness or unselfishness – benefits for all people or benefits for only a few. All of us have both selfishness and unselfishness within us, and we have the freewill to act on one of the other. A change in direction can come, but only if there is effort by the people of this country to pursue change. It won’t be quick and it won’t be without battles that show themselves in the media, but no failure will come to those who are determined enough to succeed. And cooperation is a spiritual quality.

High School science teaches us why deserts are cold at night – due to the high heat dissipating/rising quickly into the atmosphere at the end of the day – causing wide swings in high and low temperature from day to night. It also can teach us the opposite – that forests hold the heat in at night – acting as a regulator of the heat buildup of the day – preventing wide swings in highs and lows.
So, when South America deforests the Amazon rain forest in millions of acres, it’s easy to understand how no longer having trees over millions and millions of acres causes much greater heat dissipating/rising into the atmosphere. Then it can be understood that when this massive amount of heat from millions of acres of bare land moves over the Atlantic from the winds in the atmosphere, (here it comes) that the Atlantic waters off the northeastern and eastern coast of South America heat up, as well.
And, when the Atlantic Ocean’s waters heat up, this means there are more hurricanes and tropical storms. And, because of the increase in heat in the atmosphere from South America added to the normal heat buildup of summer and fall, the high temperature builds even more in the Atlantic creating, not just more, but bigger storms.
With the high pressure systems already over the US during summer and early fall, from the very real Climate Change, the high pressure systems more now push the hurricanes up the east coast instead into the Gulf of Mexico, instead of which happened during the 20th century. This pattern will continue to happen in the decades ahead because there will be little change to the circumstances contributing to this pattern.
I see even more destructive hurricanes over the next 7 years and some even worse than what we’ve seen so far. Watch for them beginning in 2020, then worse in 2021, then even worse in 2022 and 2023. Then lessening some in 2024, then less in 2025 and 2026.
These processes can be and are understandable to those “who have eyes to see”, meaning who still have open minds and a willingness to learn the reality that is upon us. This is one small and simplified explanation about how we’re all in this together, all over the planet. If anyone is wondering if something that happens on another continent can have a direct effect on us here in the US, ask the people living on the East Coast of the US.
It is appropriate to say, “What a small world we live in.”

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)
We’re moving into a time in humanity’s present and future (through this century and the next 2) when souls will have less of a chance to incarnate again because of personal actions and intentions against life – human beings’ freewill choosing against the Light.
The vibrations of the times are ever moving higher, and the times will not have for humans an avenue to be born within arenas/circumstances of the lower vibrations, which in turn, would facilitate humans to continue to manifest lower vibration (hate-centered) actions. This is a natural process because of the spiritual principle of “Like attracts like.” In other words, in most dimensions, we gravitate to the vibration level at which we personally vibrate. (I use the word “most” because in this different case, the Earth plane, in particular, throws us all together in this physical dimension.)
There will be other processes, arenas and circumstances for those of us, with other physical/Earth-like environments, whereby any of us will be able to face ourselves and our own karma. Many of us will be in Earth of the future. Even with this vibration induced limitation, no soul shall be forgotten or metaphorically “left behind” or left without a path which will help those souls to find the Light.
To help understand this further, as this process of raising the vibrations builds in the Earth, which comes from the efforts of billions of souls, there will be fewer and fewer opportunities for those souls who seek to manifest dark (non-love centered) activities to enter during these times of higher vibration. The strength of this effort means that there will be fewer souls able to incarnate into their vibratory level which would otherwise allow many opportunities to decide to turn one’s paths towards the Light.
Those described here will be denied Earth opportunities for many years and some for thousands of years – a few for eons because the vibratory level will not be available. These will be in limbo for these years with little opportunity to work out karmic debts – except within one’s self and only one’s self and one’s actions in consciousness, until the strength of the higher levels is diminished from vastly fewer souls in the Earth plane AND from the internal shadows within human souls coming forth within human consciousness because of the unwillingness to resolve any of our internal shadows previously.
While some may see this as punishment or even unfair, it still is not. This process is one where we are hindered from making things worse for ourselves. In other words, our own behavior and thought patterns are such that we would only make things worse for ourselves if allowed to incarnate back into the Earth at times of lower vibrations.
Sometimes a soul doesn’t care if they make things worse for oneself. One’s only thought is how can we cause pain and suffering onto others – because the pain and suffering within ourselves is so great and we want others to know our pain.
We have the healing key within each of us to heal the pain and suffering. It is this – the experiences we create for others are the same experiences we create for ourselves. The pain and suffering – or the peace and healing experiences we create for others to go through are the same experiences we will go through. Everyone is part of the Infinite Consciousness of God. We create experiences as part of the Infinite Consciousness and of which all of the Infinite Consciousness experiences – including our self as part of that Infinite Consciousness.
This is one of many motivating factors for billions of souls currently in the Earth (and out of the Earth) to choose healing paths for ourselves and others. The healing we choose for others is the healing we choose for ourselves. Likewise, the pain we choose to inflict on others is the pain we are choosing to inflict on ourselves. Healing examples of this can be seen in the actions of those who seek to and are motivated to help others – regardless of the arena this help may be directed to. In essence, they are answering the call to heal themselves (albiet unconsciously), as well as other lives.
An allegory for this time period can be read in the Revelations book of the Bible. 1000 years of peace is our destiny, but only when we build the foundation for it to begin. Then after this time, the book says “the devil will be let loose again.”
Yes, this is related to the time Christ returns, but only God knows when that will be. However, we can build a foundation for it via our inner work, our prayers, our meditations and healing of our relationships. As we raise the vibrations of the planet, we are creating relationships and an environment whereby the Christ Spirit becomes welcome. In essence, this process and work refers to the phrase and message of “I stand at the door and knock” – with our inner work, and the subsequent manifestation of that inner work in the relationships and environments in which we live our lives, showing whether we open the door for Christ to enter into our Earth again. “I stand at the door and knock” is not just referring to our own hearts, minds and souls, but also the Earth itself.
PS. The saving grace for all souls is “We have eternity to work this out within ourselves.” and “No soul shall be abandoned.”

1. My questions: The disasters in Aceh and Japan as well as Haiti and the Caribbean seem to have a depopulating factor. Will the population of the US decrease due to this economic crisis? I don’t necessarily mean that people will die, but will they migrate from the US (much like Puerto Ricans are leaving the PR)? If so, where will they go? Does this have anything to do with the eclipses that could be seen across America?
[A second look at this question with more details:]
With regards to the population – No, I still don’t see a decrease in the population in the next few years or going into the 2020’s. I’m not seeing a drastic drop in population world wide, at all. Quite the opposite. However, I see a lessening of the rate of increase in the mid-2020’s. I see this as a result of economic struggles world wide, as well as in the US. As economic times get better in the 2030’s, I see the rate of increase in population going up. I see population rising to about 8.9 billion by the mid- to late- 2040’s. 2050’s and 2060’s could potentially cross the 9-9.5 billion count. And yes, this will be a great strain on resources, if it happens.
While the disasters in the areas you mention do affect the local population and are readily in the news and can be seen on the internet, the percentage drop is only in a small time period.
The migrations of peoples in the world over the next 10 years, will mostly be seen in the middle east and Mediterranean areas – almost exactly as it is today. Some still from South America coming into North America. Migrations around the world will happen but be at a relatively unchanged rate compared to today. Mostly war and natural disasters will be the motivating factor. Searching for work is next and the overall economy is after that.
With regards to the eclipses affecting these factors, I see the effects of the eclipses, during the times before/after the eclipses, being to inhibit energy which stimulates movement and change. [An eclipse inhibits the sun’s energy. The sun’s energy stimulates movement and change.]
2. Is this climate time period similar to the ‘dust bowl days’ of the Great Depression? Will we see similar consequences with cold as we did with dust during this 11 year period? There is also a theory that the earth is expanding – what was once the Pangea has broken apart due to the expansion of the earth from the inside out. Is that what we are experiencing now? Is the volcanic activity due to an expansion process that the earth is going through? Do you think that major faults all over the world will begin to shudder – such as the giant and overdue San Andreas fault line? Do you ever see the lower part of California breaking up into islands, like I am told that Edgar Cayce foresaw?
In the arguments over climate change, some can argue that natural weather forces similar to the ones in the 1930’s, and the solar impact, are what is driving the current climate changes. I psychically see the “dust bowl days” during the 1930’s being a culmination of weather patterns of many decades leading up to that time, (even forces beginning to take effect going back to the mid-1700’s). The weather forces then were mostly natural, with some “lesser than today” influence from karmic forces. The impact from human consciousness was not as strong as today. Human impact on the weather, today, is real.
The extremes in both heat and cold and other weather events are what we have been and will continue to experience. The younger generations will have to carry the full impact of today’s decisions regarding climate change. We have NOT experienced the worst that can happen. If the conflicts around decisions and actions continue, then during the decades ahead, there will be some great/difficult/dangerous/harmful times that the younger generation will have no choice in going through. If people continue as we are now, with regards to lack of major steps taken, in the same way that we are experiencing serious and deadly weather problems now, the next few generations will experience even worse – not “can experience” – “will experience”.
The Pangea effect is evolving continuously and will continue even to the point of creating new continents in future millennia and eons. However, it’s affects are too slow for us to be impacted in a major and noticeable way. An example of this is the volcanic activity in Hawaii. This is a small and slow process measured in human terms. It happens, but does not create new continents in our time. The Pangea process does influence the magnetic field that surrounds the Earth, but again, we won’t see this process by itself affecting quick change – more like 100 to 1000 years measurable impact with measurements via scientific instruments rather than Earth changes.
The Earthquake activity on the planet now is under what is considered as “normal” forces influencing it, – this includes the increase of activity at this time in history. Included in these manifestations are karmic energy which aligns human and social patterns with that which goes on physically in the Earth. These both will continue. We are in a time where much is happening and “natural” happenings are in line with karmic manifestations. Supporting this: remember the journey of the planets around the sun are a natural occurrence, but they still have impacts and influences on people and human patterns of behavior – not causing these human patterns but influencing them. At the same time, human consciousness impacts the natural occurrences, in return.
Finally, I see any potential of land mass changes of significance in the California area happening over several hundred years and being thought of as a natural occurrence. I see it not being in the whole state but in the southern area – Los Angeles/San Diego area down to the midpoint of the Baja Peninsula. I see more changes happening in Florida than California. More happening in the Northeastern coastlines than the Pacific coastline. Over many hundreds of years, I see the Pacific Northwest rising slowly out of the ocean due to the Earth’s “creation of new land” process. Meanwhile the east coast will be losing its shorelines.
Edgar Cayce’s predictions were accurate for him during that day and time, and came with statements saying, in effect, if all things stay the same, these things will occur. This meant that if mankind’s spiritual neglect stayed the same, and humanity’s life on Earth kept being run by the darker nature of mankind, the energy of the times would fulfill themselves and manifest as Edgar Cayce predicted.
But, mankind had and still has a spiritual awakening in many different arenas on the planet, thus healing much of what Cayce described. While many may see the spiritual awakening which has happened in all the decades since Edgar Cayce predicted these, as being a fad or “Woo-woo”, this path is the source of the increased energy vibrations that has lifted us out of many of the karmic disasters previously destined to manifest. The increase in meditation, prayer, efforts to change away from humanity’s patterns towards war, the continued increase in social awareness which would lead to better goodwill, as well as helping the welfare of all people – these are the practices and influences which bring a Higher level of consciousness and higher vibrations – the vibrations of the Christ Consciousness (Love), which in turn helps to bring healing at many, many different levels of existence for all of life.
Remember, Christ was met with the same resistance and “push-back” that exists today. He was mocked, ridiculed, and eventually killed. But, His involvement and His teachings lived on, and live on through those who sought to, and still seek to help create a better world and better relationships throughout the world for All people and all life. The same is true of the spiritual awakening that has been happening in our lifetime. No resistance can hold up over time to the evolution of consciousness in this planet. However, this evolution can and will only happen – as Edgar Cayce says – “one hair at a time” – meaning “slowly”, so that all souls can be brought along in this evolutionary process. The planet gets included in this evolutionary process, as well.

The behaviors that are demonstrated today were seen 2000 years ago, as well. The struggle for power meant that there were many in authority who rejected Christ’s teachings so that they could gain in material power. This penchant will increase now, in our days today, and for awhile yet, which I’ve spoken of, because this method of madness has worked in the past, and is believed to be a tactic which will work, again.
Some people’s efforts to attack and destroy their opponents will become louder and louder, because they are coming to the end of their time – not time as in their own lives, but time as in the time of mankind to begin a new age. The collective voices will be the loudest – screaming at the end. This is a pattern for many of us when we don’t want to give up something that has been what we want.
There are many who seek to war – and war these will do – in whatever arena possible – including governments, today’s social media, all public venues – ever speaking to whomever will listen – to *try* to gain more numbers following them. But, no amount of numbers will change the evolution of mankind being brought about.
As odd as this may sound, the increase of the Light hinders the effort to stay deep in darkness by removing the availability of that which leads to darkness. Put another way, that which leads to darkness is kept from being fed and prevented from being allowed, therefore the impact of the Light has ever greater influence on environs. It is the principle of the raising of vibrations. That which continues to raise vibrations prevents that which would lower vibrations, albeit this transformation is done “one hair at a time.”
We are in the times of which Christ mentioned “Even the Elect (not ‘the elected’) can find themselves being misled.” “It is ever a time to be alert – to not go back to sleep – to practice one’s true spiritual practice – not for vengeance and destruction of one’s hated enemies, but for the fulfillment within our own hearts of the Fruits of God’s Spirit, which will come upon us and come from within us … if we keep on keeping on, drawing from the Infinite Spirit within ourselves for the purpose of bringing forth the best parts of what it means to be a member of this human family and children of One God.
Our vigilance comes from our efforts to be honest with ourselves with doing the best we can each day, and with what we best hold is honest, rather than what is said by anyone, anywhere, at any time, for a self-only agenda. Our effort is for expressing what is deep within us at the core of our spirit which is one with the Infinite Love and Compassion that is Christ knocking at the door to our hearts. Our call is to give to “the poor” that which God has placed within the essence of our souls – our kindness to those who are poor of kindness working to deny it to others, our compassion to those who express little compassion, if any, except to those of their own beliefs, our understanding to those who seek to understand no one but their own kind, to listen to those who hear no one, to forgive those who forgive no one, to be merciful to those who show no mercy.
Yet, the astonishing question is – How in the world can we even begin do this or offer these qualities to people who demonstrate little of these qualities ?! I will say first that of ourselves we *cannot* do these things. Alone – there is no way. We cannot stand alone and think we can do any of these things – alone. But, as we’ve heard over and over, and can benefit from hearing over and over and over again, reminding us everyday – with God, “all things are possible”. In fact, only with God are these things possible. But, not just in our heads – but in our hearts – the place of Love, where God lives as Love.
Only with God, can we give mercy to those poor in mercy. Only with God, can we be kind to those who share no kindness with another. With God, we can and do bring forth from within us the Fruits of the Spirit of which Christ said, “It is from their demonstration of these Fruits that you will know my true followers.” Only with God, can we demonstrate the deepest kindness, the most important patience, the understanding, the mercy, the forgiveness, the compassion, the brother/sisterhood of humanity, and more.
…only with God – when we pray, “Lord, teach me the truth.” “God, make me into the good soil.” “God, help me be honest with myself.” “God, teach me the wisdom and discernment I need, so that I may not mislead my own self down a mistaken road because of my own hatred or bitterness that I may still be trying to change within myself.” “Lord, help me not use my own pain and my own suffering as the weapon that inflicts even more suffering onto yet another person.”
Many look out from our own perspectives and see the world with great amounts of turmoil, selfishness, greed, suffering and violent hatred happening. But, again, with God – we will also be able to see the healing that comes from an individual’s prayer for family, friend, or a stranger, who is suffering. With God, we can find it within ourselves to give the gift of compassion to one other person whose suffering we cannot fathom. With God, we can listen to another person’s stories of their life and pain, and understand that their level of suffering can be much greater than anything we’ve experienced in our life, even if we don’t see theirs.
Only with God, can our hearts and minds be lifted up to greater heights of compassion, love, and unity. With God – is the path where we can honestly say, “I love you.” With God, is when we can be honest with ourselves and say, “I forgive you.” With God, we can give the healing words, “I’m sorry.” With God, we can look within and even say, “With God, I love myself, too, and I forgive myself, as well.”
With God, we can come to realize that what we see happening in the world, is not the view where we will see God’s continued effort to bring peace to each of us.
There are many people in the world who seek conflict and war, because it serves them, but with God, it is ever true that “With God, within us, we will have that peace which – though we begin by thinking it must be lost to the world – will be reawakened in the world through *us*.”
With God, will come the transformation of the world in which we live – from within us expressed outwardly – like artists creating masterpieces – like gardeners growing green life – and from He who put the stars in the skies and set the heavens in motion.
With God, all is possible – including God being visible in the Earth – through the expression of the Fruits of the Spirit from those of us who keep on keeping on our path of – with God – Love.

“It’s impossible for a closed mind and an open heart to exist in the same person both at the same time. One will eventually overcome the other. Either the closed mind will close the heart, or the open heart will open the mind. Choose for yourself, today, and remember, a closed-minded person loses a little bit more of their heart, everyday.” (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2006-2018, Jodie Senkyrik)
