Human Progress

Human progress advances one grave at a time.

This is a modification of the famous quote by Max Planck, founder of quantum physics: “Science advances one funeral at a time.” Which is to say that human beings are resistant to new ideas and to change.

I used to think that if enough people woke up, a rapid change in consciousness would occur. I’ve given up on that idea! Human progress advances one grave at a time. Change occurs slowly, over generations. The old-timers die off and the new children come in. That doesn’t mean things don’t improve! It just happens slowly. It sucks, because aware people can see that the system is broken. It needs to be fixed ASAP!

The Current Paradigm of Knowledge

In physics, dark matter and dark energy comprise fully 95% of the universe. Current science only understands (at best) 5% of universal phenomena. To quote NASA:

It turns out that roughly 68% of the universe is dark energy. Dark matter makes up about 27%. The rest - everything on Earth, everything ever observed with all of our instruments, all normal matter - adds up to less than 5% of the universe. Come to think of it, maybe it shouldn't be called "normal" matter at all, since it is such a small fraction of the universe.[1]

Moreover, over 90% of human DNA is not understood. Less than 10% of our DNA is protein-encoded, that part of the human genome that programs the physical characteristics of individual human bodies. The other 90% must have a function, but it is not understood. Therefore medicine also understands only a small fraction of human biology.

We may conclude that our current knowledge of the universe, and of ourselves, is woefully insufficient. Why is it then, that new ideas are so often ridiculed, even though our understanding is so limited? The famous statement about the progress of an idea perfectly encapsulates this: First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

What gets people to accept a new idea that was, a short time ago, strongly opposed? Like the automobile and the computer, the stubborn ones who will only accept the status quo must first die off.

This begs the question: Is science as we know it today at the pinnacle of knowledge? Perhaps ten percent is as good as it gets! The rest may be unknowable. If so, then the current fossil fuel economy is the pinnacle of evolution. Medicine is at its highest point. Communications and travel can’t get any better than they are now.

Most people under the Bell curve will accept the status quo without comment, or could care less. But these people are almost never change agents. They are the followers, not the leaders. It is the old souls and the introspective ones who come up with the new ideas that change society. If you are intuitive at all, you suspect that the current paradigm cannot possibly be the pinnacle of knowledge, or technology, or evolution.

The work of Dr. Steven Greer of the Disclosure Project shows us that exotic technologies have already been developed, but are hidden away. See the national security briefing by Greer at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-heKCgFjlBA&feature=em-subs_digest

We also know that the Patent Office has issued over 5,000 Patent Secrecy Orders, suppressing new technology under the guise of national security.

It seems that we are not even close to the highest possible level of knowledge.

It doesn’t matter whether you believe Greer or not. In order to develop advanced technology that will save the planet (or, if you believe Greer, get already existing technology released) the mass consciousness must accept new ideas. If we want to advance we must not be satisfied with only ten percent!

Some New Ideas

Let’s say that the human race is always at its highest level of knowledge, corresponding to its current level of consciousness. We know that there are lower and higher levels of consciousness; we see it every day in life! Some people are with it, some are not. If you have ever talked to a macho-man about compassion and harmony, you have experienced this! Macho-man is at his highest level of awareness based on his own personal self-awareness.

In general, we can only know that which is reachable from our level of awareness, because we can’t know what we don’t know. So science is always at its highest level of knowing. The question is, are there levels of knowledge beyond what we don’t know? If there are, the only way to reach them is by raising our collective vibration via a change in consciousness. This opens up new levels of information.

However, the evolution of human consciousness is not guaranteed. The old generation dies off and the new generation comes in, but if there is no one on the planet to spread the light, to raise the collective vibration, the same old shit happens generation after generation. This is what has happened on planet earth for millennia.

That is why the 2012 marker is so important: we made it past all the prophecies that said we should have already destroyed ourselves in a nuclear war. World War III isn’t going to happen, despite the thrashings and flailings of those stuck in the old paradigm. When the new kids come in, they will be coming in to a planet that has evolved, and is evolving (slowly), to higher levels of consciousness. Eventually this generational shift will provide solutions to intractable problems that don’t have a solution at the current level of consciousness.

When new ideas are proposed they are often shot down by orthodox science. Reading Wikipedia is instructive. If you look up frontier science topics like electrogravitics and energy from the quantum vacuum, you will find ridicule backed by science.

Scientific pronouncements still have a big effect on the mass consciousness. However, science assumes that the materialist paradigm is the only paradigm and that the dimension we live in is the only dimension. But if the universe is multidimensional, our level of knowledge is dependent on what dimension we are in. At the third level, the level of materialism, we are trapped in a box. Consciousness – the change agent for advancement – is not even recognized, or if it is, is postulated to be dependent on matter. At this level, human beings are just meat bodies. Poverty, injustice, and conflict is the order of the day. A civilization at the third level is unaware of the higher vibrations, unaware that there ARE higher vibrations and a much higher level of human consciousness. That is why new ideas are ridiculed, and also why new ideas are so important! They postulate concepts beyond the box of 3-D.

The function of the old soul, from lifetime to lifetime, is to keep knowledge of the higher vibrations alive in the consciousness of society. An old soul is one interested in the spiritual and the esoteric. The old soul can think beyond the box of 3-D. If you are reading this, you are probably an old soul! The old soul is approximately one-half of one percent of the population.

For the past 5,000 years the old soul has been fighting the old energy in a sort of retrenching operation. Nothing much changed on the planet until the 2012 marker. Most people would say that nothing changed; that things are even worse now. But they aren’t. They’re better. The light is penetrating the darkness in ways it never has before. That’s why we are seeing so much horrible stuff coming forward. And some funny stuff too.[2]

 

String theory tells us that there are other dimensions, and that these dimensions are infolded within the fabric of spacetime. This is a scientific statement that we do live in a multidimensional universe. A multidimensional universe is one with a spectrum of vibrational differences. As one travels up the dimensions, new wisdom, and a new physics and a new medicine, make themselves available. The earth is slowly ascending to a higher vibration. This means that the discovery of heretofore unknown information is coming. The discovery of new technology that can literally create a paradise on earth and eliminate scarcity, poverty, and disease is coming (slowly). But only if we continue and expand our spiritual connection with Gaia and with our higher selves. Technological advancement is dependent on spiritual advancement!

The competition for scarce resources creates the evils mankind experiences. But this situation is wholly consciousness-dependent. Scarcity, competition, and conflict is unavoidable within the paradigm of a scarce fossil fuel economy, and fossil fuel science. Disease is inevitable within a paradigm of a materialist medicine.

The seeming inevitability of conflict, struggle, war, and disease has been blamed on “human nature.” But this belief is a distortion. The current paradigm is just a reflection of the current state of human consciousness and thought. In the past, humanity believed that consciousness proceeds from neurons firing in the brain. Within such a vibrational box, a low level of consciousness is inescapable and cannot be changed. Within that box “human nature” must always stay the same.

The idea that human nature is unchangeable is not natural law, but an imposed paradigm of thought. In less conspiratorial terms, it is a strongly held belief, a self-fulfilling prophecy. Before the 2012 marker, the resonant frequency of human civilization did not change even as scientific advancement completely altered the physical nature of human societies. The new children came into a planet that was always at the same level of consciousness. Therefore science and technology cannot be the basis for the true advancement of the human race.

Human Nature Is Not Fixed

Human nature is alterable. Human nature is dependent on human consciousness. Human consciousness is based in thought, and thoughts are changeable. Human consciousness has a physical component, but also a divine component. In order to change human consciousness we must discover that divine component within. In this way we advance the consciousness of humanity and proceed to higher dimensions, where new technology and information is available that will transform our societies. Our advancement as a species is dependent on how well we are able to access our spiritual/divine component.

When it is discovered that energy is abundant, the evils that result from scarcity will disappear. Let’s see what NASA says about this:

In this theory [the quantum theory of matter], "empty space" is actually full of temporary ("virtual") particles that continually form and then disappear. But when physicists tried to calculate how much energy this would give empty space, the answer came out wrong - wrong by a lot. The number came out 10120 times too big. That's a 1 with 120 zeros after it. It's hard to get an answer that bad. So the mystery continues.[3]

Some forward-thinking physicists don’t think this is wrong at all! If indeed there is anything close to 10120 joules of energy in every cubic centimeter of space, that’s enough energy to power the planet until the sun novas. For free! Compare this to the primitive internal combustion engine, coal-fired power plants, and even nuclear energy. It’s a complete paradigm shift. Unfortunately, research dollars in the sciences go almost exclusively into already established channels, thus supporting the status quo.

We will never know if such exciting technology exists unless there is a change in consciousness to a higher vibration. It will never happen at the level of materialism. Even if such technology exists within the “black” programs, as some like Dr. Steven Greer have asserted, it will never be released until human consciousness is ready to accept it. To do that more people with new ideas and higher expectations are necessary.

A “higher vibration” or a “rise in consciousness” just means an increase in tolerance and compassion. A lessening of competition and conflict and an increase in cooperation and harmony will result, which leads to higher creativity and intuition. It seems crazy to say that raising the vibration of mankind will open up a new physics and a new medicine. Sheldon Cooper would at once pronounce this as “hokum.” But it’s only hokum if you believe that ten percent knowledge is as good as it gets.

Drama and Consciousness

Consider that our galaxy has AT LEAST 100 billion stars, and could have as many as 400 billion. If most of those stars have planets, there are several hundred billion planets out there. Some of these planets must have intelligent life. (Nature wouldn’t create such a huge collection randomly, without a purpose. That idea is a materialistic one.) If all planets with life have an equal chance to graduate out of materialism, there are probably a lot of civilizations that don’t make it, and some that do.

The civilizations in the “Star Wars” franchise have galactic technology but not spiritual wisdom. Despite their advanced technology, they have just carried their materialistic nature out into space. They compete and fight with each other on an interstellar scale. BORING! In science fiction this scenario is called “space opera.” Space opera is drama. All conflict is drama, and indicates immaturity. Adolescents (and emotionally adolescent adults) thrive on drama. If you have ever had teenage children you know what I mean.

Drama has been occurring for millennia on this planet. Look at the Middle East. The Shia and Sunni conflict. The Serbs vs the Croats, the Hutu vs. the Tutsi, Darfur, The Hatfields vs. the McCoys, etc. etc. etc. Drama comes from the inability to forgive and to get over yourself. It’s a symbol of a consciousness based in materialism.

The spiritual component of the human being is what will create a new civilization. New technology is an offshoot of the rise in human consciousness, driven by the spiritual component. Discovery of the divine within, on a planetary basis, will lead to a “golden age” society where disease, poverty, injustice, and conflict are things of the past. We advance dimensionally (vibrationally) past the drama of “Star Wars.”

The demarcation line between a true civilization and a barbarism is cooperation and compassion. Jabba the Hut had interstellar technology, but he was still a degraded being of low consciousness.

The significant datum is consciousness. Where are we on the scale of cooperation and harmony? Where are we on the scale of compassion? These are divine qualities and will lead to a divine society as well as an inevitable advance in technology.

The problem for old souls and other spiritually oriented people is that we are a tiny fraction of the population. Very tiny. I don’t know the reason for this, but if you have woken up, it’s your job to keep your light shining! Your work has made the difference, lifetime after lifetime. And it will continue to make the difference.

In the Beginning

The Bible tells us that at the beginning of the world, Adam and Eve were given fruit from the Tree of Knowledge and that was the beginning of human civilization. Of course this is just a metaphor, but there is an element of truth to it. The Bible story tells us several things. First, Adam and Eve are portrayed as homo sapiens, looking just like modern humans. That is unusual because at the beginning of the world there were several species of humans – Cro-Magnon,  Neanderthal, Home erectus, Homo habilus, etc.[1] Every other species on this planet has more than one variety, but there is only one type of human. Something happened (in a non-evolutionary fashion) to the human race to eliminate all of the other competing human species.

David Brin, the science fiction writer, has an excellent series of books he calls the “uplift series.” These books are brilliant, and describe a universe where evolving species on young planets (like earth) are given genetic enhancements by older, established species. This enables younger, promising races to evolve in consciousness, with the hope that they will eventually make it into galactic society. Moreover, creation stories from various cultures all describe “gods” coming to earth and giving humans a “divine spark.” Something like this must have happened on earth: one species of human (maybe the most promising one) was “uplifted” via genetic enhancement and had such an advantage over the others that it became dominant.

It is not understood how modern humans evolved from the apes. Geneticists now think that "the ancestor of great apes, including humans, underwent a dramatic genetic change. Small pieces of DNA replicated and spread across their resident chromosomes like dandelions across a lawn."[2] These duplication blocks of DNA, called core duplicons, are thought to be the basis for new genes and are thought to be a missing link in  human evolution. How and why these duplication blocks of DNA spread throughout the human genome is a complete mystery.

The idea that the human race could have been genetically manipulated violates the sacred academic assumption that the earth is alone in the universe and that we have evolved completely free from non-terrestrial influences. All right, then explain to us how this happened!

We live in a galaxy teeming with intelligent life and it would be absurd in my opinion to assume that this planet has not been visited by civilizations in our galactic neighborhood.

Over 90% of our DNA is unclassifiable. It is not protein-based but scientists cannot discover what it's doing in the human genome. According to Scientific American, "In 2000, when scientists of the Human Genome Project presented the first rough draft of the sequence of bases, or code letters, in human DNA, the initial results appeared to confirm that the vast majority of the sequence—perhaps 97 percent of its 3.2 billion bases—had no apparent function."[3] Now biologists are revising their idea of junk DNA by finding "previously hidden switches, signals and sign posts embedded like runes throughout the entire length of human DNA."[4]

How did these genetic signposts get into the human genome? Yeah, probably just by accident. It just happened randomly. Maybe. And maybe it’s time to expand our view of the universe and humanity's place in it.

The Duality

The Bible implies that when Adam and Eve tasted the forbidden fruit it opened up a can of worms: we were given the duality, the knowledge of good and evil. Most of these Bible stories are just metaphorical, as are the creation myths of the earth's cultures and civilizations. But they would not have survived over the millennia if there were not a kernel of truth in them. All right, let's assume the "Garden of Eden" story has some truth to it. What is that truth? What is the purpose of the duality?

The duality has two aspects: free choice and evolution. The duality inherently creates free choice because there are always at least two options for every action: You can either go to the light or the dark. Obviously all choices are nuanced, so there might be dozens of choices for every situation.

(1) The idea that free choice comes from the duality is something I never really granted any credence to, mainly because it seems stupid to have the option of choosing misery, injustice, cruelty, and all of the other evils that afflict mankind. But a 50-50 balance (the starting point) in consciousness  between light and dark means there is an inherent choice offered in every life situation. There is an equal chance to choose one or the other, or gradations between them. So choice is built-in to the duality. The Bible seems to imply that the duality was a gift from God and that free will or free choice is a God-like attribute. There must be some benefit to having the choice to choose light or dark. That brings us to the second purpose of the duality: evolution.

(2) The choice between good and evil provides a tension; an energy. Without the darkness there would be no impetus for improvement. The duality provides contrast  that allows  for learning. When you take the wrong road you get smacked in the face. Karma becomes activated; through many incarnations a species gradually gains in wisdom and understanding.  The duality provides lessons that, if learned, allow a civilization to transcend it and become spiritually aware.

Some argue that the Bible story of Adam and Eve provided a paradise for mankind; that we were already spiritually aware and that we descended into darkness BECAUSE of the duality. But here, mankind is in a state of innocence; completely inexperienced and without wisdom. In third density, this state of perfection isn't going to last very long! And so the duality is a way of evolving consciousness in learning and wisdom. It becomes a force for advancement and evolution to a divine state.

Regardless whether the human race started off as an uplifted species from the apes, or descended in consciousness from a state of innocent perfection, it is clear that humanity had to start over after the last Ice Age 18,000 years ago. Let's broaden our perspective and look at the evolution of planets from a galactic perspective. The universe is 13.5 billion years old. The planet earth is around 4 billion years old. Humanity appeared on the scene as homo sapiens a few hundred thousand years ago, which means there are probably a lot of much, much older graduate races out there. A young race like humanity is just beginning its journey (again?) and is not advanced in consciousness. The planet earth is sitting firmly in third density, which means it is mired in ignorance and materialism. Humans are clueless cavemen looking out at the lights in the sky; thinking that the earth is the center of the universe. Humanity has very little wisdom or spiritual understanding. If you are a graduate civilization how do you uplift  a species like that? You give it the "gift" of duality. You allow the species the opportunity to lift itself out of third density through its own conscious choices.

The Starting Point: The Divine

Ultimately everything in the physical universe is a creation of a universal intelligence. All incarnated beings on all planets and galaxies are aspects of the Creative Source. So the baseline, the origin, the starting point, of anything physical is consciousness. Although human consciousness has an obvious physical dependency, incarnated human consciousness returns to its higher state of physical independence after the death of the body.

For some reason the physical universe was created and aspects of the divinity incarnate into it. The object of the game is, apparently, to evolve physical structure  and physical consciousness to the starting point of the Divine. The very beginning of that process, the very first step, is experiencing the duality, and evolving out of it to higher states of awareness.

How many planets in our galaxy have intelligent life? Who knows, but I’d image there are millions. Do all planets with intelligent life achieve spiritual awareness? I’d imagine not. Here in third density, the duality doesn’t stop at the earth’s atmosphere. Some make it, some don’t. What would a planetary civilization that didn’t make it look like? It would probably have a strong resemblance to earth, with a lot of misery and conflict. Such a civilization wouldn’t have evolved to the point where beings recognized that they have a spark of the divine within them. They’d go on mindlessly fighting each other, and if they got out to space they’d probably be pretty aggressive and warlike. We’d get the Star Wars sce­­­nario.

Then there would be the civilizations that made it. These civilizations would “graduate” out of the stupidity of materialism and third density, and set themselves upon the path back to their divine origins. They would have transcended the duality, the basic tool of spiritual evolution. When that happens, graduate civilizations discover a multidimensional universe and multidimensional physics, which allows them to travel within their own universe and between other universes and dimensions.

And, perhaps, graduate civilizations would “seed” promising young planets (like earth) with the divine spark, and give them the opportunity to evolve out of materialism. That seed would include the duality and free choice. It couldn’t be any other way, really. A planet has to decide for itself whether to go to the light or not. To evolve out of materialism requires self-awareness, and you don’t get that by others doing it for you. The motherships aren't going to land on the White House lawn until AFTER we eliminate conflict and war and there is peace on earth. Transcending the duality (choosing the path toward the light) is the first and most important step. Duality creates contrast and allows free choice. It provides beings with experience, through karma and past lives, and a planetary civilization with the opportunity to advance. Therefore the duality is a gift, but disguised as a curse.

The duality is the spiritual testing ground that determines whether a planet makes the jump to higher awareness where all the good stuff is. If you don't make that jump then – even if you become technologically advanced – your civilization stays mired in conflict even on the interstellar level, a la Star Wars. And if you don't advance technologically your economy stays at the primitive fossil-fuel level, your civilization suffers resource depletion, and you basically die out, like a plant that doesn't get enough water.

This is where the planet earth is now. Are we headed for a Borg-like fascist planetary society with control at the top, and advanced technology devoid of any spiritual component? That is the path to eventual death as a species. Technological advancement without spiritual understanding leads to a sterile, soulless society that cannot advance past the third density.

The solution is to advance spiritually, but all uplifted civilizations don’t make it. Planet earth has the chance to do so. We avoided WW III and extinction events. We got our plane off the ground. Now it’s up to us to fly to a good place; a place where we can fulfill our potential and join a community of graduate civilizations at the multidimensional level.

We are sowing the seeds now, right after 2012, for the next several thousand years. Trans-humanism and dependence on technology as some kind of savior are dead-end paths. We must understand and develop our own consciousness and discover the divine within. If we do that an entirely new level of technology will be discovered; a multidimensional technology that works in cooperation with consciousness. A multidimensional physics will be discovered, disease will be a thing of the past, our cellular structure will be able to heal itself quickly and even grow new limbs.

Transcending the Duality

How do we transcend the duality? Here's a situation that comes up a lot on earth: a criminal goes on a rampage; killing people, destroying property, stealing. When the criminal is caught  the question becomes: What do we do with this dangerous lunatic? The standard solution is punishment and at the extreme, execution. But punishment and/or execution just places us back in the duality; it continues the karma created by the criminal and also attaches it to the punishers and to those who acquiesced in the punishment. Both sides of the situation are enveloped within the duality. The solution? forgiveness. Does this mean we let the psychopath back out on the streets? Nope. But a sane society makes it clear that a human being is valued and important, and acts on this principle. Criminals and psychopaths are created from karma (abuse from parents to children), which continues to the next incarnation, and the next, and the next, until forgiveness and tolerance finally breaks it. You don't have to love the unlovable to break karma. But you do have to have tolerance.

How is it possible to even show tolerance toward a murderer or a child molester? Isn't that itself an act of insanity? Here is where the master shrugs and says, "What kind of future do you want for yourselves and your children? There is only one path out of the duality. That path is love and tolerance." The master says, "Why do you think you have a divine spark inside you? It's your ticket out of misery and karma and short lifespans and disease and injustice. Either use it or lose it."

And that's the truth ladies and germs. It's hard, it's really hard. Because when a civilization is mired in the duality it makes sense vibrationally to have solutions that resonate to the duality. So, "an eye for an eye" makes sense. Punishment makes sense. "Why should we let criminals ruin our societies? We have to make the penalties for crime so harsh that no one will want to misbehave." Again the master shrugs. "I told you 2,000 years ago to turn the other cheek. I got killed for daring to mention the path out of the duality. I'm telling you, there's only one way out. There are thousands of justifications for not showing tolerance and love even when it makes sense to not do so. It's your choice."

That's the reality. As Red says in the Shawshank Redemption, "Get busy living or get busy dying." The duality represents death and karma. The way to "get busy living" is, at a minimum, to show tolerance even when the person you are dealing with is an asshole. Because love and tolerance sets up a vibration within you of love and tolerance, and then you don't meet up with any more assholes. And you break the cycle of karma.

There are probably thousands of civilizations on thousands of planets who didn't have the courage to find God inside. Those civilizations didn't make it. They are doomed to a continuation of their karma until, eventually, their civilization collapses and they have to begin again, or they just die out. We've seen it on earth over and over again with the rise and fall of empires. Now, we are approaching planetary consciousness. If that planetary consciousness is still mired in duality, we become just another civilization that didn't make it. We go out into space and fight wars and get into disputes and compete and never realize a fraction of our potential. Instead of transcending the duality and graduating to a higher level of consciousness we become like the Brooklyn Swami: "I told you guys to center yourselves, but you was too stupid to understand what I was talkin' about."

Summary

The duality inherently leads to free will and to a state of potential evolution to a higher state of consciousness. "Uplifted" races such as humanity have a seed, or a divine spark, of divinity inside, that enables them to transcend the duality, to choose love and tolerance over hatred and intolerance. It's a test, basically. A test of energy. There are thousands of perfectly legitimate justifications for remaining mired within the bubble of duality. In fact, that's the setup. The test is to see if we can go beyond the Brooklyn Swami and attain mastery. It's up to each and every one of us.

Introduction

For the past 5,000 years the human race has been operating on the principle of karma. Karma is an energy that pushes you into situations in order to resolve issues that crop up from lifetime to lifetime. On a planet where people routinely lived only 50 years or less (80 years within the last century) there is never enough time to learn anything or gain wisdom. Just when you begin to get enough experience and you are starting to figure things out, it’s time to take a dirt nap. The spiritual system that has evolved, then, is to resolve issues in previous lifetimes during the next lifetime. When a human being incarnates the next time around, he or she picks up the energy (karma) from all previous lifetimes. There is a proclivity, or a set-up (karma) that pushes you willy-nilly to meet people and to become involved in situations that give you the opportunity to resolve the karma from previous lives. Before the Shift the veil was so thick, and lifetimes have been so short, that karma was really the only system that gave any chance to bring light into the darkness of a civilization that descended from cavemen.

I gave an example of this in a previous blog post, about a guy who gets robbed by two footpads, so I won’t repeat it. All of the issues of karma come into play in this example, which is typical of situations people find themselves in, lifetime after lifetime. Almost always they don’t involve robbery, but they do involve issues that everyone faces: problems with the boss or a co-worker, problems with mother-in-law, sister, or brother, difficulties with women or men in relationships, problems with money; the list is practically endless.

Karma is a Spiritual System

Karma is a spiritual system because it gives all involved an opportunity to resolve these issues. Very often these issues are not resolved because spiritual awareness is so low, and more karma builds up (see the example of the robber). However, every so often a miracle occurs and someone will become self-aware and bring light into the situation. When this happens, the karma resolves for all beings involved, and can even resolve karma connected with the issue for  previous lifetimes. Thus progress is made, even if it is slow and painful. However, sometimes karma builds up to such a degree that an entire civilization is destroyed (such as in Atlantis) and the process has to start all over again. On a smaller scale, nations or empires rise and fall because of karmic buildup. When a nation collapses it has simply built up too much unresolved karma and the culture implodes.

The point is that karma is a spiritual system for advancement. It is often thought of as a curse for humanity. When something bad happens people sometimes say, “My karma brought me this.” Well yeah, but on a planet with such a low consciousness, how are you going to advance the species? On a planet where people think that fighting and violence is the only way to resolve issues, where a desire for power or influence is regarded as the highest attainment, and where most people believe themselves to be meat bodies, karma is the best spiritual system possible, particularly when free will is in operation. Karma is a spiritual system that can bootstrap a civilization up the ladder to greater awareness by offering the possibility to make enlightened decisions. On a planet with over 7 billion people, it happens billions of times every day. Therefore karma is not a negative, it’s a positive.

The importance of the Shift is that our civilization actually resolved enough karma over the past 5,000 years that we were able to make it past the threshold point of destruction. This only happened very recently, around 2012 during the completion of the 26,000-year precession of the equinoxes (which is what the Mayan Long Count calendar was all about).

The more people on the planet, the greater the opportunity for more positive life decisions to be made. Because light penetrates darkness it is more powerful. Therefore a relative handful of persons compared to the rest of the population have made (and are making) a huge impact on the planet’s spiritual balance.

Now we are headed off into unknown waters, but those dangers do not include a destruction of civilization. The balance of light and dark has shifted now in favor of the light. This doesn’t mean we are home free at all, but it does mean we have a much stronger potential to create peace on earth and to begin the process of actually building a planetary civilization that cooperates and recognizes its higher potential.

Old and New Souls

The Akash – the record of all thoughts, intent, and actions from all lifetimes – is, however, filled with the karma built up over the millennia. Fortunately, the population buildup has resulted in 5 billion or so “new” souls who only have a few lifetimes here. Therefore the karmic accumulation in the vast majority of souls is low, and can be changed rather quickly in comparison to “old” souls, who have hundreds or even thousands of lifetimes on the planet. And so, old soul, the clearing of your karma is the most important thing you can do, for the greatest source of the old energy is us! Old souls not only have more light to shine out into the world, but also more karma to clear.

It is almost certain that if you are reading this you are an old soul, for old souls are interested in esoteric and spiritual subjects. That’s because we’ve been here so many times we have a lot invested in how it turns out. In the higher vibration after the Shift, the Akash speaks to us: old feelings, thoughts, and intentions boil to the surface and we don’t know where they come from. It’s just old karma coming up to be cleared, like when you open that old closet door and junk comes spilling out into the hallway. You can either trip over that old stuff every time you want to go somewhere, or you clear it out of the way.

There is good news, however. The shift in the balance of consciousness has made it possible for individuals, and even cultures and nations, to completely eliminate karma as a method of spiritual advancement. This means that even after millennia of war, by using pure intent, we can clean up the Akash in our personal lives. If enough of us do this it will have a profound effect on the planet, for Gaia’s consciousness is tied to human consciousness. The Bible tells us that man was given dominion over the earth, which just means that the planet and the life upon it was set up to advance the human race and provide a system that would advance consciousness here. I’d imagine that this setup is common to many planets out there in the galaxy.

The key is raising awareness on a collective basis to the tipping point, where people recognize the stupidity of war and fighting. When the collective Akash of humanity is cleaned up enough it will change belief systems. Right now the vibration of the planet is still mired in conflict and war, but that is changing. Waiting for us in the planetary grids are laws of physics and medicine that will allow us to tap clean energy safely from the quantum vacuum, and medical breakthroughs that will completely eliminate disease. These templates of knowledge, however, can’t be accessed until the collective vibration reaches a certain threshold.

The keys to this new knowledge are vibrational ones. The “door” behind which these new discoveries wait is a vibrational door, because we live in a vibrational universe. ALL progress is dependent on advancing spiritual awareness of who we are. As long as humanity is mired in a paradigm of scarcity and unworthiness, and believes in the stupidity and denseness of materialism, we will struggle at a low level of knowledge, but as soon as we raise our vibration enough these discoveries will open to us. In other words, getting past a primitive, polluting, and inefficient fossil fuel economy is directly dependent on raising consciousness.

The spiritual system of karma was the best possible one during the old paradigm, but is outdated after the Shift. A person’s karma can now be fully resolved in this lifetime. How can this happen? First, by realizing that it’s possible. Second, by the use of affirmations and pure intention. Free will allows us to make these choices, but we will make them only if we begin to understand the power of consciousness and co-creation. This stuff used to be esoteric and almost nonsensical to many before the Shift; it was a pipedream in a world of low consciousness dominated by the foolishness of materialism. But we made it out and now it’s possible.

The Cycle of Birth and Death

What is an “old soul?” I have always thought of karma, and the Cycle of birth and death, as a very linear, straight-forward, one-way street. The explanation I’ve always heard is that you live a lifetime, time passes, you go back home, you try again the next time during the next incarnation. I’ve always thought of past lives like a string of Christmas lights wired in series; first you live lifetime A at time A, then you live lifetime B at time B, and over a long, long time you have a very experienced being that has had a ton of experiences. You could have 1,000 lifetimes on earth in this way, gaining experience, knowledge, and wisdom in each separate lifetime.

But this way of looking at spiritual evolution now seems a bit myopic to me. It is completely linear and time-based, which is the way we experience time on earth. However, the all-that-is isn’t linear; it’s dynamic, quantum mechanical, and inter-dimensional. Out of the physical universe there is no time, because Spirit sees everything at once. What is really happening, I believe, is that when you terminate your physical expression you go back to the One and reunite with all of the “pieces,” or aspects, of yourself (selves). You are actually living every lifetime all at once from the POV of your non-physical, Higher, self. In other words, when you come back from this lifetime you meet up with all of your Expressions that have been living lives on the earth timeline at the same time. One piece of you goes into lifetime A, the other into lifetime B, and so on. Because this is all happening at the same “time” from the non-physical POV, every single lifetime immediately affects every other one. “Past” “present” and “future” are irrelevant concepts. If you, in lifetime 233, have a breakthrough, that will affect all of your other lifetimes concurrently. If you have a breakthrough in lifetime 878 (the present lifetime, say), it affects all of your other “past” and “future” lives simultaneously, quantumly.

So an “old soul” isn’t a being who has lived many previous lifetimes one after the other on some linear timeline, it’s a being who IS living multiple lifetimes all at once. An old soul is “bigger,” meaning the old soul is capable of splitting off more and more of himself/herself to incarnate into the physical universe. As the planet evolves spiritually, more and more beings gain more and more experience and power. More and more are able to live multiple lifetimes at the same “time.” So when you have your life review, all the “pieces” of you come back together and you see how in lifetime 345 you did something really good, but how you messed up big-time in lifetime 27. When you go again, all 878 “pieces” of you go back onto the timeline simultaneously to try again. The system, in this way, is basically a “re-do” or a reboot of the entire timeline of your presence here on the planet.

The potentials for each lifetime are known because of the Akash, which is an experiential record of every soul that has/will ever come here. These experiences can be analyzed and “set-ups” can be constructed to maximize the spiritual potential of all souls who incarnate on the planet. Before the Shift this had to be done with Karma: there was so little awareness that for the common good you had to be “shoved” into situations in order to resolve them. But now, with awareness rising, it’s possible to vacate that karma and set up an entirely different paradigm, or configuration space, for the evolution of the planet and humanity. This is something really, really new and we gotta get used to the idea that life is dynamic and quantum mechanical, not linear. For old souls this is going to be a lot harder than for the young “kids.” (The age of your physical body has nothing to do with it.)

Right now there are a lot of “young souls” who aren’t experienced enough to split off too many times, so you have a lot of beings here for the first or second or third time. Newbies. That’s how the population rose from 2 billion in 1926 to over 7 billion in 2011. Lots of beings, apparently, wanted to come here during the denouement of this 26,000-year cycle of the precession of the equinoxes, but they don’t have a lot of experience on earth. So we got a huge population explosion, and a lot of people who aren’t quite with it yet. The advantage of this is that most of the planet has very little karma build-up.

You don’t get 5 billion more people by accident. Something this monumental isn’t a “coincidence.” The planet earth right now is apparently a pretty big deal.

This explains why the present lifetime after the Shift is so important. Because all souls on this planet are living their past lives concurrently, they are all inter-connected. The Shift has allowed us, in the present life, to make huge spiritual gains and affect all of our other lifetimes, both past and future ones.

In effect, every soul who isn’t a total Newbie (first-timer) is a collective, or group, consciousness. Old soul, there are more than one of “you” living concurrent lifetimes.

Joe Schmoe Has a Conversation with His Higher Self

Joe Schmoe comes back Home from lifetime 878 (the present for us) after doing nothing important his entire life. The few friends he had thought Joe was pretty much a nonentity, and Joe thought that about himself as well. In this lifetime Joe was taking a vacation. He didn’t give a crap about the Harmonic Convergence, or Y2K, or spiritual advancement, or metaphysics. Ten years before he “died,” one of his friends dragged Joe into a spiritual conference where somebody was channeling. Joe thought the whole thing was hilarious; all he saw was a self-promoting charlatan sitting in a chair, pretending to be a psychic. He could hardly prevent himself from laughing out loud, especially at all the dupes in the audience. After it was all over his friend said, “Wow, wasn’t that great?” and Joe said, “That was the biggest bunch of bullshit I’ve ever seen.” Anyway, ten years later, Joe takes a dirt nap. Just after he breathes his last breath he sees a whole bunch of people he is intimately familiar with but almost all of whom he has never seen before in his life. These people are all congratulating him on his life. Joe’s first thought is, “What the f---? I’m supposed to be dead!”

The conversation goes something like this:

“Who are all of you people?”

Joe recognizes the guy who was channeling at the meeting ten years ago. “It’s OK you thought it was stupid. You were taking some time off.”

“But...”

“Hi Joe!” Joe sees a beautiful woman who strangely reminds him of his grandma Jessie.

“Are you... no, it can’t be! You’re supposed to be old!”

“Grandma” Jessie laughs. “Oh no, Joe, angels don’t get old.”

Joe is confused but his whole being is infused with a sense of love, joy, and well-being. When Joe was perplexed on earth he automatically reached for a beer, but he realizes for the first time that he doesn’t have a body anymore. Joe isn’t used to feeling this good. He’s used to thinking of himself as a zero. “Where am I?” he asks.

“You’re home, Joe.”

Joe looks around and feels a fantastic feeling of connection with everyone there. He can’t believe it. Joe didn’t have many friends when he was on earth, but there are so many people here patting him on the back he feels like a hero.

After he gets acclimated, Joe gradually gets to know everyone. Suddenly he understands that a lot of those present are HIM.

“So that’s what you meant about the Higher Self,” Joe says to that part of him that was the channeler.

“Yup, that’s it.”

“I don’t understand the purpose for my life,” Joe says, realizing how dense Joe Schmoe used to be.

“Oh, don’t worry Joe. You were there at that meeting so that another person in the audience felt comfortable, because she was just as skeptical as you. After you talked with her and joked around, she had an epiphany at that meeting.”

The Great Experiment

Joe gradually understands that all of the “pieces” of him are engaged in a gigantic planetary experiment, a test of free will the results of which have a profound effect on everything in the universe. As he gets to know all of his aspects Joe feels a sense of power and wisdom. As he integrates back with himself Joe feels like God, and understands how important he is to the rest of the universe. He understands that he is an old soul, original to the planet, and that by splitting himself off into so many pieces he is able to carry his light all down the timeline of the human race. Joe understands that there is a purpose for everything, that the universe is intelligent, and that nothing happens by accident.

Joe feels great love for himself and for all life everywhere. He is greatly admired for the work he has already done and at this point his feeling of self-respect is unlimited.

Joe sees that he is one soul of billions that are associated with the planet earth and that every incarnated being is part of a gigantic human family. He sees that earth is just one of quintillions of planets in the universe with intelligent life, and that each planet has its own family of souls, and that they are all engaged in a monumental universal experiment. Joe is so happy he would probably have crapped his pants if he were still human.

After a while he meets with a being who is responsible for meeting and greeting souls who “die” and sending off souls who are ready to be born again. Even though Joe is reveling in a feeling of power and joy, he begins to get excited about “going back in” for another try. All 878 of his physical Expressions (for Joe is fully re-integrated with himself now) are chomping at the bit, ready to see if they can raise the vibration of earth a little more and enhance the evolution of all life in the universe. Joe sees how magnificent the Creation is, and the memories of his troubles and sorrows on earth have been long forgotten. He understands how trivial they are, even though they seemed monumentally important when he was just Joe Schmoe.

Joe finally understands that what he used to think was an insignificant, rubbishing little life actually had immense importance because he made thousands of important decisions that had the potential to change the balance of light and dark on the planet.

Joe understands that misery and sorrow are all self-fulfilling prophecies, and that after the Shift on earth, when he comes back in again, he will remember a lot more about the between-lives area the next time around. He will be able to have a greater influence all along the timeline and enhance his own life and the lives of everyone on the planet. Joe looks forward to peace on earth and being part of the blossoming of the human race, which now has a chance to finally realize its true potential.

Joe begins the process of “splitting” again, and says goodbye to all of his aspects before incarnating in another human body.

But this time around it’s going to be a lot easier.

Over the next few years and decades, organizations, systems, and people who do not demonstrate integrity will have a harder and harder time of it. Even materialists understand that something is changing on the planet. There is a new energy here. That which in the old paradigm was the province of metaphysics is slowly becoming more manifest, and is becoming more and more a part of daily life.

That doesn’t mean that earth will turn into a planet of metaphysicians who all love new-age stuff. Even in the new paradigm there is going to be contention, because along with a more harmonious background energy will also come enhanced creativity. Creative people can be very insistent on their point of view! There are going to be more new ideas and new approaches, and that will lead to clashes: Whose way is right?

Fortunately, there will also be greater harmony. There will be more willingness to at least consider the other person’s point of view. We all know what happens in the old energy: Opposing viewpoints are fought for, people get emotional, people get insulted, there is a lot more acrimony than there should be: Because “everybody knows” there is only one right way to do anything! But in the new paradigm there will be a general acknowledgment that “more ideas are better.” There will be less insistence on “my way or the highway,” because this viewpoint is non-inclusive. Like it or not, more harmony leads to greater inclusiveness and acceptance, which can be summarized under the general heading of tolerance.

Paradoxically, more harmony means more creativity and more ideas, which leads to MORE diverging viewpoints. But more harmony also means a greater tolerance for different ideas. That’s the way it’s going to be in a couple of decades, and it’s going to be so generally accepted that conflict and “I’m right” will seem childish. There will be a Renaissance on earth. It may not always be peaceful but it will sure be exciting. The possibility for conflict and war will lessen as the years go by, even as more ideas circulate, because the old guys will die off and the new children will come in. It’s exactly what Max Planck meant when he said that old scientific theories only become accepted when their proponents leave the planet. Apparently the transition from the old paradigm to the new paradigm of thought must happen slowly.

Big Pharma

The medical profession is being bought by the pharmaceutical industry, not only in terms of the practice of medicine, but also in terms of teaching and research. The academic institutions of this country are allowing themselves to be the paid agents of the pharmaceutical industry. I think it’s disgraceful.  — Arnold Seymour Relman (1923–2014), Harvard professor of medicine and former Editor-in-Chief of The New England Medical Journal [1]

Dr. Peter Gotzsche, who co-founded the Cochrane Collaboration (the world’s foremost body in assessing medical evidence), found in a separate analysis that 100,000 people in the United States die each year from the side effects of correctly used prescription drugs, noting that “it’s remarkable that nobody raises an eyebrow when we kill so many of our own citizens with drugs.” 1

Big Pharma is one of the first outfits that will experience problems doing things the old way. That portion of the pharmaceutical industry which makes products only to make money – even when there are serious side effects that harm people – will experience an implosion.

I have noticed on TV and in magazines an almost desperate effort by pharmaceutical companies to hawk their drugs. An advertisement for a quit-smoking drug had, as one of its side-effects (and I quote), “suicidal thoughts and actions.”

Think about that for a moment. If you or I promoted a product that could cause people to kill themselves, we would – rightly – be put in jail. Because such a person would clearly be a danger to society. How do pharmaceutical companies get away with this? Because that’s how the system works here in the US. Even on sports websites now, I’ve seen the lead ad be one for drugs.

Some of the pharma ads on TV are scary. I saw one ad where people are looking (rather crazily) up into the sky at skyscrapers, where the drug ad is positioned. The ad starts with, “if you have (blah blah condition), consider taking (drug).” The look on their faces is blank, as if the people in the commercial are hypnotized. It is totally discomfiting to a rational viewer. Then the list of side effects is shown, and that’s pretty scary too!

According to prescriptiondrugsProCon.org, the United States and New Zealand are the only two countries in the world that allow DTC (direct-to-consumer) advertising on TV for prescription drugs. Canada allows more limited advertising that are called “reminder” ads. The television airwaves (which are supposed to be public property) are being used by drug pushers here in the US.

(I just want to say I am not banging on all prescription drugs, only those advertised that cause serious side-effects. When I had a kidney stone last year, I thanked God for my Percocet!)

The point is that certain sections of Big Pharma clearly lack integrity. We’ve all heard of the problems with various prescription drugs. Amazingly, properly prescribed and used prescription drugs are the third leading cause of death in the United States, after cancer and heart disease. This is per Dr. Peter Gotzsche, Professor of Design and Research Analysis, University of Copenhagen. This appalling statistic is an example of how humanity has let itself become engulfed by a false medical paradigm. This is not an attack on doctors – who are great people often overwhelmed by this paradigm, and who are doing the best they can within it – but on the pharmaceutical industry.

Pharmaceutical drugs can do wonderful things but sometimes they kill. To knowingly advertise a drug with serious side-effects (like suicide) is unsupportable in a sane society. Those who participate in systems that lack integrity will, as the years go by, become an endangered species.

What happens in organizations will also occur for individuals.

We often say in the metaphysical community that “consciousness is rising,” but what does that mean? It means more tolerance, more compassion, and more harmony. Institutions and individuals that already manifest integrity will continue without extraordinary difficulty, but those who do not – or which are based on a “dog eat dog” consciousness – will experience greater and greater difficulty. The “dog eat dog” people will complain (and are already complaining) that the world is getting “soft.” Well, they are right! The “macho” consciousness is going to have a difficult time of it because fighting and conflict – however it manifests – is vibrationally incompatible with greater harmony and tolerance.

In the political arena, institutions such as the US Congress, which spends 99% of its time in childish contention and blame, will either have to adapt or it is going to collapse internally. Interestingly, the Congressional job approval rating, according to RealClearPolitics.com, has risen to 20.8% (in the period 3/1 – 3/21) from around 14% before the election. This is still a horrible percentage however! Either Congress will manifest greater cooperation and tolerance or it will go by the wayside. That’s true of any political body. People are very tired of contention and they want solutions! Solutions can only occur when people actually listen to each other and work for the greater good. These are characteristics of greater tolerance and greater harmony. Look for it! In a group, the integrity of an organization is proportional to the level of cooperation it exhibits internally and with other groups.

100% Responsibility

Part of being a being of integrity is accepting responsibility for your actions. Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len, a practitioner of the Hawaiian healing method of Ho’oponopono, says that taking 100% responsibility for anything you do is the only way to become free. That’s because, if something is unwanted in your life, you share the same “program” with anything or anyone that is causing your problem. A program is a way of looking at things. For example, in the sentence above, “But more harmony also means a greater tolerance for different ideas,” I originally wrote, “But more harmony also means a greater tolerance for competing ideas.” The latter statement came from an internal program of mine that says, “There is only one right idea on any subject, so all ideas must compete with each other and fight it out.” I’m beginning to understand that the manifestations in my life come from my “programs,” which is just another way of saying, my “belief systems.” I like the word program better because a program is an instruction set that dictates action.

According to Dr. Len, one way of dissolving unwanted programs and feelings is to take 100% responsibility for them.

In this vein, my friend Khurshid in Germany has written a profound statement: “To feel elated when in favorable circumstances is child's play, but creating that feeling in adverse circumstances is a heroic deed.” When you get fired from a job (which just happened to me) it is difficult to feel good about yourself. However, when I realized that the other person had nothing to do with my problem – that I was creating a program that caused the client’s reaction – I was able to very quickly step out of it. The program I was running (and which was responsible for the problem) immediately made me feel hugely upset, then feel angry indignation. My first reaction was to make myself right and blame my situation on the other person. But when I kicked in the  program of “take 100% responsibility,” I determined that the situation was an opportunity to open up my heart. It was a blessing, not a curse! It was an important life lesson. As soon as I realized that, I felt a wave of relief flood into me. I can honestly say now that I have no diminution of affinity for the client, and that’s because my situation had nothing to do with the client! As Chris Rock used to say on an old Saturday Night Live sketch, “It’s all about ME,” not about the other guy.

When you start living life in 100% responsibility you eventually reach a feeling of personal power. You understand that nothing happens to you unless you had a hand in causing it. At first (at least for me) there is petulance and indignation (“Look what that idiot did to me!”) but with practice the Responsibility Program kicks in. The important thing about this program is that it prevents your affinity for people, and for life, from diminishing. Taking 100% responsibility seems like a burden, but when you apply it to yourself honestly it can be very freeing.

So how can you tell if you have a “program?” If there is a situation in life that keeps coming up. Relationship issues, work issues, whatever the area of life, programs dictate states of being, and actions, that get you in trouble. The 100% responsibility program is a way to cut to the chase; it’s a relief program that allows you to look inside and recognize what it is inside you that keeps causing the problem. The Infinite is inside of every individual; we are all pieces or aspects of God, Spirit, the Creative Source.  Therefore, by looking inside we can contact any person or thing known to us on the planet.

Ho’oponopono works by clearing your negative feelings. It has nothing to do with the other guy. If you aren’t clear within yourself in an area of life you can’t be happy with yourself in that area. This has been brought home to me in crystal clear clarity – my negative emotions, which are self-generated (they don’t come from others, or from evil interdimensional beings) prevent me from seeing others, and situations, clearly. The Responsibility Program tells me to get to work on myself and clear the negative feelings. It’s hard work. Just when I think I’ve gotten things cleared up something else comes up! Well, too bad. All that means is that I still have more work to do. The great part is that my work doesn’t involve the participation of others. It’s something I can do within myself, so it’s something I can take 100% responsibility for. I don’t have to get permission from anyone except myself! Ho’oponopono is freeing and it’s clearing and the more you do it the better you feel.

The Akash and the Old Soul

Why do negative emotions continue to come up? Perhaps you are a person who experiences happiness all the time or almost all the time. If so, congratulations, you can skip this section. But I’m not one of them! I have realized that negative emotions can come from your Akash, which is the complete record of all of your lifetimes on earth. Daily life can be a restimulator of your Akash. It seems that this junk is coming from nowhere, but it’s actually coming from an old energy paradigm. If you are an old soul you have LOTS of lifetimes on the planet, and many of them probably involved getting beaten down when you tried to show your light. If you are an old soul ALL of your Akash has been generated in the old energy, when the light was weaker and the dark stronger. Things didn’t always turn out well for the old soul, and all of those experiences have been imprinted and recorded. When you incarnate you pick them all back up again (karma), so it’s necessary to deal with them. The confusing bit is when you don’t realize that a lot of these negative emotions don’t come from the present life, but from the energy of previous lifetimes. You say, “I meditate, I live a clean life, where is all this garbage coming from?” It’s coming from your Akash, old soul.

This will seem preposterous to a being who has only had a few lifetimes on the planet, and for these beings, it is. Almost every negative emotion you experience, young soul, is probably coming from the present life. (There are over 5 billion new souls since around 1930 out of a population of 7.5 billion. That’s the vast majority of people on the planet.)

Since the Shift after 2012, the light is getting stronger – but your Akash, old soul, is still filled with the old energy. It keeps telling you that it’s not going to end well, because that’s what happened lifetime after lifetime, so why should it be any different this time around? (I talked about this in an earlier blog post, “The Vibrations of Doom.”) So you keep getting negative emotions coming up, courtesy of your previous life experience, even though the paradigm has shifted. (One of the consequences of the Shift is the readier accessibility of your Akash.)

How do you handle this? Using affirmations. You just keep thinking or saying, “My Akash is clearing and the balance of it is shifting to the light.” I’ve found this helps me a lot. It is actually possible, but it can be hard at first,

If you are metaphysical and call yourself a lightworker, well, nobody said it was going to be easy! There’s a lot of crap to clean out folks, but after the Shift it’s a lot easier to do it, you just have to be persistent. I spend a lot of my conscious moments nowadays clearing out my Akash, because crap just keeps coming up. But the reward are those moments where I feel a sense of personal power, a feeling of love, and an inexpressible feeling that all is well. That happened to me this morning before I went to work and got stuck in more crap. According to Lee Carroll, it gets easier. You just gotta be persistent.

Young souls don’t have this problem. They have only been here a few lifetimes, and their Akash hasn’t got anywhere near the negative stuff that an old soul has. If you have friends who are young souls and you envy their seemingly easy and uncomplicated lives, remember that these people are just figuring things out. Old souls have so much experience we don’t need to make the mistakes our young friends will make. Our problem is clearing our Akash. But if you look at time not as a linear, straight line that only flows one way, but as a circle, in which the future, the present, and the past are connected, you can literally clear the past and the future from the present by your meditations, visualizations, and affirmations. The energy goes round in a circle to the past and to the potentials that lie in your future directly from the present moment. So a clearing in the present affects both past and future.

In my lifetime I have been exposed to many doomsday scenarios. During the Cold War we lived under the threat of nuclear annihilation. The Cuban Missile Crisis almost plunged us into World War III. Over the years, events in the Middle East nearly did the same. The worldwide electronic and computer infrastructure was supposed to collapse during Y2K. 9/11 was supposed by many to be the beginning of the end. When the Deepwater Horizon oil platform exploded in the Gulf of Mexico, some said it was the beginning of an extinction event. A meteor was supposed to hit the earth and destroy all life on the planet. The poles were supposed to shift, creating calamities such as floods and tectonic events. The world was supposed to end on December 21, 2012. But none of this ever occurred.

Now, I look back on these very fearful events and laugh. "Oh, they were just conspiracy theories! We all totally overreacted." But were they? If something doesn't happen, there's no way to determine the probability that it might have happened; we just know that it didn't happen. For us on the safe timeline, we never know what the potentials were. We assume that events either happen or they don't, like an on-off switch. But what if the universe operates quantum mechanically? In quantum mechanics a system can have multiple states that all exist at the same place and the same time, superposed upon each other in a "soup" of probability. Whatever manifests is just one of many possible states, but many other states may still coexist alongside the manifested one. There may only be one timeline with many possible outcomes, or many timelines that manifest all probabilities. Either way we only know the timeline we're on and the manifestations that did occur.

What determines which of those potentials or timelines is manifested? A materialistic science says it is random, that certain events occurred because the system just shifted, and that everything else is a conspiracy theory. But this explanation ignores the variable of consciousness. Consciousness is the quantum mechanical operator that selects, from among the many different potentials, which one finally becomes real. Metaphysically this is called co-creation. Co-creation is the conscious selection of a future outcome.

Using this idea, the human race did not select World War III from among the probabilities for the planet. But we did select 9/11, Fukishima, and all the other events that did happen. If consciousness is the quantum operator, we could make a list of everything that did and didn't happen over the years, using the current news of the day as a database, to determine the "state" of human consciousness at that time. We could get an idea of the balance of light and dark on the planet at any period of history.

Let's say that human consciousness is the selection operator, determining, through the balance of our beliefs and expectations, which of the potential outcomes that are possible actually comes true. What happens when an outcome manifests? Do all of the other probabilities immediately vanish to zero? Is it winner-takes-all? My guess is no, because we live in a vibrational universe. When you drop a stone into a pond you get ripples, but those ripples don't vanish immediately. The effect of the stone dropping into the water continues until the ripples gradually fade away. Perhaps the same is true with consciousness and manifestation. Like the stone dropped into the pond, the ripples hit the edge of the water and come back, interfering with the ripples still going outward, which also sets up further disturbances called interference patterns. The event is in the past, but the effect of that moment of impact continues through time.

Similar to the pond, the earth is a closed system, a self-enclosed sphere travelling through space. If the potential for two events to occur (say, conflict leading to a world war, or conflict that is contained locally) are both high, the one that does not occur may still have a ripple effect, even though the other one manifested – because the potentials were high for it to have happened. In this case, you would still be able to detect the feeling or the vibration of the probability that didn't manifest. The potential for it to occur in the future, then, is still there. Therefore there could still be strong vibrational remnants from the unmanifested potential. Sensitives, or just people in general who are sensitive to energy, may pick up on these ripples.

Let's say that on December 21, 2012, we passed an energetic marker that makes impossible the potential for World War III, or any extinction event. The vibrational ripple effect of that doomsday scenario, however, is still with us, because that probability has been in the minds of billions of people. In other words, the potential that didn't manifest is carried forward in time.

Some people can feel that we have gone past the marker, but there is still a prevalent feeling of doom from the old vibration in the minds of many – even though there is no longer a chance of doom. But because of the co-creative power of human consciousness, the vast majority of humans still postulate a doomsday scenario! In other words, we passed the marker but people are still co-creating disaster. They can still feel the remnants of the old vibration even though it has been superseded by a new reality. A “doomsday” scenario has manifested after the U.S.  election. I know a lot of people who seriously think we are doomed now that Trump is president. They talk about a breakdown in society with a sense of inevitability.

That is why it's so important for aware and awake people to keep a positive attitude. When your friends moan and groan about Trump, or the state of the country, inject something positive without making people wrong. "Well, I think that we're headed for a positive future in the long run." You can do this without negating another's personal beliefs. This will be very important in negating the negative ripple effects from the old potentials. The more human  consciousness can project a positive future, the easier it's going to be to transition out of the old paradigm of thought.

There are still negative potentials! Not catastrophic or extinction events, but things like a financial collapse, or a civil war, or a coup d'etat. We can negate these things IF we postulate a benign future and not one filled with turmoil. I don't know about you but I've had enough turmoil in my life! (Don't look now, but some people are forecasting another cataclysm (surprise!). The latest is a gigantic solar flash that will (supposedly) generate a huge EMP that will take down the electrical grid all over the planet. Supposedly the sun does this every so often, because of the different rotational rates of the solar equator, the mid-latitude regions, and the poles. Well, we can begin to co-create that now, lol! Or we can co-create something else.)

Most people don't understand esoteric stuff like this. Most people (even if you could get them to understand) might not even care, and that's OK. But people like us, who understand the importance of metaphysics and consciousness to manifest events on the timeline, have the responsibility to smooth the waters and create a future of peace and prosperity for everyone. There's never a crowd on the leading edge, as Esther Hicks used to say. If you are an old soul (one who has had many lifetimes or expressions on earth) you will feel the power and the validity of this statement.

The Field

Sensitives can FEEL that the energy on the planet has changed. It's been turning me inside out, I can tell you that. It's to the point where I literally cannot think negative thoughts without feeling uncomfortable. That's because this new energy, which Lee Carroll calls "The Field," is a harmonizing energy. It's an energy of peace, cooperation, and coming together. Those individuals and organizations who don't go with the flow will find their organizational and cellular chemistry failing. It's cooperation, literally, or you begin to fall apart. This tendency is going to strengthen over the years and the decades. The balance between light and dark on the planet is gradually going to increase in favor of the light.

Therefore, it's gradually going to get easier and easier to be compassionate and to shine your light. It's going to become more accepted. The tough guys, the fighters, they are going to have a harder and harder time of it. We will begin to see the dark spots showing up against the white as the vibrational background becomes brighter and brighter. The dark side doesn't know how to change and doesn't want to change; they are stuck with the same methods they have always used in the old energy: coercion, intimidation, force; and their tools, fear and anger. These are the fermions and the bosons of the dark side; but these people and groups are going to stick out more and more; they will be seen to be less and less in the mainstream and more and more outlandish! And more harmful. That's just the opposite of what it was when I was growing up in the 1950s, and I am grateful for that.

What is The Field? It's a term that represents a cooperative, esoteric background energy. In quantum field theory, every subatomic particle is just an excitation of an underlying quantum field. Well, The Field is the basic substrate that underlies all vibration, from which all quantum fields arise. Because it is created by the great central source it is love-based and operates harmoniously. You’d think that the immediate effects of The Field will be to quickly turn the earth into a paradise, but what’s going to happen (as we are already seeing) is a battle between light and dark, a battle that was forecast by the indigenous on our planet. When the light penetrates the darkness the cockroaches come out and are exposed. It’s going to seem like the planet is going to hell for a time. There will be greater contrast and a greater expression of intolerance as those who want the old system fight to keep it; but at the same time we’re going to see more tolerance as well expressed by the forces of light. Enlightened ones, shine your light! By doing this you help to transform old potentials and create a brighter future for everyone.

Precession

The earth has an approximate 26,000 year cycle called the precession of the equinoxes. It's the time it takes the earth's wobble to complete one full cycle. Everything I’ve read says that this cycle has tremendous esoteric significance. The end of the last 26,000 year period was, according to the Mayan Long Count calendar, on December 21, 2012, which is 5 Long Counts of approximately 5,126 years. Apparently, at the end of each of these 26,000 year cycles there is a window of several years duration with the potential for massive change. We are in one of those periods now.

It is a time of shift, where consciousness on the planet has the potential for a quantum leap in evolution. Within the window of that shift many potential futures or probable outcomes present themselves. Human consciousness gets to choose what will happen until the next precession, whether we are ready or not! If we want 26,000 more years of madness, then OK, so be it. But if you are an old soul who is tired of coming back to the planet and struggling, lifetime after lifetime, it's time to step up, as they say in sports. Old souls in particular must choose a positive future, in harmony with The Field, because most of the population is clueless. They are living their lives and are working on their brands and doing all the things that human beings do, and that's fine. But with great knowledge comes great responsibility. Only a relative handful of old souls compared to the rest of the population can make all the difference in which potential future humanity chooses. Are you an old soul? Well, if you are interested in esoteric subjects and have an innate feeling of understanding about the planet, you probably are. Your past life experiences, recorded in your Akash, “leak” into your consciousness and sya to you, “You have been here before.”

  Old Souls and Co-Creation

Because we are only 4 years from the Dec. 21, 2012 marker there are still potentials for darker outcomes hanging around in human consciousness. It's our job to apply the co-creative abilities of consciousness and use its quantum operator function to select the appropriate outcomes from the soup of possibility, thus negating potential negative outcomes that, although not cataclysmic, can still be uncomfortable if they manifest. Human consciousness, through individual choices, is doing this all the time, whether we recognize it or not. Keeping to the same belief systems keeps the quantum operator selecting the same old same old, decade after decade. Change means changing what we think and what we expect and what we anticipate – and that can be hard work! But that new expectation will create a new future.

Those of us who can feel the shift past the Dec. 21, 2012 marker are also feeling the release of our past life karma. If you are an old soul – one  who has been on the planet lifetime after lifetime – you are having the hardest time because you've been burned at the stake, executed, and in general spat upon when you've dared to shine your light during the previous cycle. During the previous Long Count the balance on the planet between dark and light was in favor of the dark. But now it's tilting slowly toward the light. Enough brave souls made miraculous decisions to overcome the darkness and embrace the light, despite the danger. Thank you!

If you are an old soul you have more karma but also more wisdom. That's because you've been around so long you know how earth works. You have an innate wisdom of what to do, and what not to do. You understand the power of co-creation, and your connection to the great central source. There is power there! The power to change the future, and to make the present a much pleasanter place. Even if you are not an old soul– and it makes no difference to the planet, or human consciousness – you can use the power of co-creation to choose the brightest possible outcome for humanity and the planet. We are at the beginning of a new 26,000 year cycle! Let’s start things off on the good foot.

The nature of the duality is opposites. Contrast is simply part and parcel of living in a physical universe. We get hungry, we feel full, night gives way to day, injustice coexists alongside justice, and feeling bad is seemingly inevitable at some point after feeling good. I get my life to a really good point but it never stays that way. That probably happens to almost everyone unless you are some kind of master.

I am 65 years old now, and getting tired of the rollercoaster ride.

I have taken endless seminars, read books by the dozens, employed a host of meditation and other self-help techniques – but nothing seems to change the duality for me. Bad always follows good, which is then followed by good again and then, eventually, bad. This led me to a re-examination of the idea of karma.

Karma has been defined as “what goes around comes around,” but that is much too simplistic. When we consider that many of us have had multiple lifetimes on earth, karma becomes very complex. Moreover, the veil of duality obscures the previous lifetime(s), so we are always coming in “cold” – ignorant of what we have done in our past lives. We have to live for decades before we discover what our karma even is – unless we get a really good astrology or numerology reading, or go to a psychic who isn’t a fake. I studied numerology when I was in my early 40s, in an attempt to understand why I kept going up and down the rollercoaster of duality and karma. A good numerology reading will tell you, in a general sense, what your karma in past lives has been. For example, my reading told me that I had a karmic lesson in the area of responsibility and family, and another in the area of inner awareness and spirituality. This was spot-on, and gave me a general idea of what I had to work on. However, even a good reading cannot tell you exactly what you did in previous lives. If you knew that, you would have a much better idea of how to handle your personal karma.

My astrological sign in Scorpio. Scorpios often have a volatile temperament and feel things very strongly; we have high highs and low lows. My former podcast host on the Interview With Spirit Show, Amanda Goldston, is just like me. And so in my life I have suffered from suicidal depression, but have also experienced the most exquisite joy. But I look around at my friends and family members, who all are on a more even keel than me. I asked myself, “Why am I so up and down all the time?” The first thing I did was remove any physical reasons for my ups and downs. I went to see doctors and alternative health practitioners; I took care of the physical reasons for any ups and downs (for me this involved, finally, going on a high fat, low carb, and no sugar diet, which has put me physically in a good place). That was great, but I was still experiencing emotional ups and downs; so what was the reason for that?

I eventually discovered that ups and downs is simply a part of life in the duality. It took me a long time to finally come to grips with that. “But that isn’t the way it’s supposed to be!” I would say. “The idea that you have to experience ups and downs is nonsense. I should be able to feel great ALL the time!” And so I embarked on a spiritual quest to find the magic bullet that would allow me to always be in the light.

I took seminars, meditation courses and energy healing courses, all designed to put me in the light. After all, light transforms darkness, I thought; so the more light I am the less darkness I will experience. However, after 20 years of this I was STILL experiencing ups and downs. I was stumped! I concluded that life in the duality means that you take the good with the bad (as billions of other people have concluded, I suppose).

Then one night last month I had a horrible nightmare. I was trapped in a massive war where people were killing each other left and right. I was spotted and a whole bunch of fire came my way. I knew that I would be dead very soon unless I started killing a lot of people. However, as death and destruction rained down on me and I began to fire back, I realized that my situation was hopeless. I simply couldn’t kill enough people to get myself out of the situation. That’s when I woke up with the word “love” resonating in my consciousness. The first thing I did was re-live the nightmare and put love into the situation. I had to do this because I was still resonating to the horrible feelings of war and death and hopelessness. I did this for about 10 minutes until a quote from Albert Einstein came into my head: “You can’t solve problems with the same consciousness that created them.” Then I had a realization, and all of the bad feelings associated with the dream disappeared.

I understood that behind my “downs,” behind every negative emotion I experience, is a lesson. Sometimes this appears as an energetic “jewel” or packet of information, but it is always BEHIND the negative emotion.  I understood the reason for my experience of the duality, and why the downs occurred: I needed to look behind the downs for the lesson. To do that I had to embrace the negative.

Suddenly I understood: By trying to be in the light and ignoring the darkness, I was avoiding the lessons, the jewels, that the duality was presenting to me. It was just an excuse to avoid the lessons I had to learn! The negative is just a signpost telling me that there is something important behind it.

For the past three weeks I have been embracing my negative emotions, throwing love on them, and looking “behind” them. It’s been great! I’m realizing that the duality isn’t evil, it isn’t a punishment, it just IS.

Throughout my life negative emotions continued to pop up. I understand now that if the lesson isn’t learned, it will simply repeat. I learned that I must embrace the duality if I am ever going to make any real progress. So the answer for me is not to try to be in the light all the time, but to embrace my personal darkness and then infuse it with light. I’m sure many people have realized this over the years, but it’s new for me in a very powerful way. I understood that the darkness isn’t evil. It’s just there, perhaps as a result of my karma from past lifetimes. By trying to avoid the unpleasantness I was ignoring the lessons. Now I infuse my negative feelings with love and look for the lesson. It seems to be working. And I also understand that I needed my seminars, my meditations, my energy healing courses, so that I could get myself to the point where I was aware and strong enough to confront the duality. It’s pretty cool.

The duality has a purpose: to get you to see your karma. At this point in the development of human consciousness it’s possible to simply look behind the negative emotion and transform it. You don’t have to do 3-year amends projects, or embark on grueling or expensive self-help programs. You can use the inherent power of your own consciousness, your power of thought and intent, to quickly move past the karma.

On a less personal level, I understand much better how karma works.

How Karma Works

Person A and person B, or group A and group B, or nation A and nation B, come into confrontation somehow. Their desires are different. Eventually the situation escalates into conflict. Over millennia a very powerful vibrational meme gets developed: the resolution of problems via fighting and war. Fast forward, say, to the beginning of the scientific revolution. Human consciousness is beginning to understand more about the world and the universe we live in; we’re beginning to understand more about ourselves. The population is increasing; hundreds of millions more beings are coming onto the planet. One day Joe Schmoe goes to the bank and takes out some money. On the way home he is surrounded by footpads who try to rob him. Joe is carrying a weapon. He now has a choice: to kill these bastards or to take the peaceful path. The only problem is that the peaceful path makes Joe a lot poorer. He gets madder and madder as the footpads approach him with the obvious intention of robbing him. He thinks, “Why should I let these worthless parasites take what is honestly mine?” So Joe gets into a fight, kills two of the robbers, and gets killed himself.

Upon his ascension out of the body, Joe and the two robbers see what really happened. The footpads were there to allow Joe to make an incredibly important choice: between love and hate. To transcend the duality and the wheel of karma. All three of them see that Joe’s decision put more negative energy into the human consciousness grid. All three of them see what could have happened: a rise in the vibe of the entire species, if Joe had chosen differently. (Note that the opposite is also true: the two footpads could have made the decision not to rob Joe! That is the opposite side of karma, and perfectly represents the duality: the “bad guys” also get a powerful chance to overcome their karma and add good vibes to the human consciousness grid, as well as letting Joe off the hook. In other words, both sides of the duality have an equal opportunity to raise the collective consciousness, not just the “good guys”!) Joe and the two robbers don’t get angry at themselves, because the veil was there to obscure the truth. They all vow to do better next time. Thus, when Joe and the two robbers come back during their next lifetime, they will be presented again with similar choices between love and hate. Perhaps this time Joe will be the footpad and the two robbers will be the good guys. That’s karma.

In order to advance the species, enough people have to make the incredibly hard decision to allow themselves to be robbed and take the peaceful path, or to decide not to commit the crime even though it is their karma. Tolerance and love has to create a strong enough morphogenic field to overcome millennia of intolerance. That’s how the duality works. In order to get to a higher vibe, there must be good guys and bad guys, who both have the choice to (hopefully) make a decision based in love, and raise the vibe of the entire planet.

Karma on a National Scale

Here’s an example of karma on a national scale. During the Revolutionary War for U.S. independence, the colonists were divided between those who were loyal to the British government (Loyalists, or Tories) and those who favored independence (rebels). You might think that after Yorktown (the last battle of the war)  everyone settled up, peace was reestablished, and the country was united. But that’s not what happened at all.  During and after the war many Loyalists were killed and about 60,000 or so of the 300,000 Loyalists were driven out of the country, and their homes and property were seized. The nature of that civil conflict was aptly summarized by Thomas Jefferson when he said, “Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading.” At the founding of our country we didn’t choose the path of tolerance, so the lesson repeated. One hundred years after that we had the Civil War. Apparently we still didn’t learn the lesson because one hundred years later, that karma is coming back to haunt the United States in obvious ways: our country is bankrupt, corruption in government is rampant, the people are under terrible stress. Hillary vs Trump is just a reflection of that old conflict between the Loyalists and the rebels, the North and the South. The lesson always repeats. That’s why tolerance is so important now after the election of Trump.

Tolerance

The masters who came down to the planet were so important. In order to give the species a chance, somebody has to start the vibe. People like the Buddha, and Jesus the Christ, came to earth to start a powerful vibration of love in human consciousness. If enough people (like Gandhi, who, when confronted by his killer, instantly forgave him) pick up on that and apply it, the morphogenic field of love becomes more and more powerful. Only a relatively small handful of people have to do this for the human race to begin advancing, because hate is just a lower harmonic of love, and is subsumed within it.

The reason why it takes so long for a species to advance is because it’s so hard to make these decisions. It’s almost impossible to find love in a vibe that supports so much hatred. It’s almost a miracle when it happens. But the lesson repeats and repeats and repeats, because life is a far grander play than we see behind the tawdry, ignorant veil of materialism. Karma isn’t about getting robbed or keeping your money. It isn’t even about “what goes around comes around.” It’s about love versus hate, and what kind of society we want to have on this planet.

You can break it down very simply: the hallmark of fascism and tyranny and misery is intolerance. Hatred manifests itself in intolerance and leads to all of the ills in human society. Love manifests itself in compassion and tolerance. That’s human history, that’s the fundamental human expression of the duality for the past 5,000 years.

Situations change because the lesson must repeat. It must repeat because life is benign, because life wants to move forward to a higher state. Beyond the materialism of the duality is the One consciousness, which wants to experience and advance itself in understanding. Behind the duality is love.

As I said already, it’s not about Trump vs Hillary, it’s about tolerance vs intolerance, no matter which side you are on.

When we execute psychopaths and psychotics who cause death and destruction, for example, we take them out of the world so they can’t cause more trouble, and allow everyone else to live in peace. We think we’re doing the world a favor, and it does work for a time. But it’s the wrong decision because it reinforces the consciousness that causes psychopaths and psychotics to come into existence: intolerance and hatred. Warped people are simply people who haven’t been shown tolerance or compassion.

The lesson repeats century after century because the physical aspect of life is only one part of it. The other part is beyond the veil and programs physical action. It’s the spiritual aspect and it transcends the material world.

The “bad guys” come back, over and over again, until we finally get it. As Walt Kelley once said, “We have met the enemy and he is us.” That precisely describes the wheel of karma: One lifetime you are the good guy, the next lifetime you are the bad guy. Karma continues because we haven’t yet learned the lesson. The lesson is, when do we exercise tolerance and compassion?

This is why Jesus the Christ said, “Turn the other cheek.” I totally get that now. Why? Because there is no other solution than tolerance and love. There just isn’t. That nightmare I had illustrated the point vividly for me, in unmistakable terms: You can’t kill enough bad guys, you can’t fight hard enough to overcome the situation; and even if you do, it’s only temporary. You can be a tough guy and carry a gun and kill the bad guys, but you’ll just come back the next time as a victim. The lesson will repeat over and over and over and over on the broadest scale: the wheel of karma will continue, and you’ll still be on it. You can’t solve problems with the same consciousness that caused them.

To transcend the duality we have to learn the lesson. To learn the lesson we have to dissolve the negative vibe that holds it together. The only way to dissolve the negative vibe is through love and tolerance.

I used to hate that saying, “Turn the other cheek.” To me it meant give up and roll over. “Why should we reward criminals and punish honest people?” I would think. “That just adds more injustice to the world. Besides, nice guys finish last. Just look what happened to that guy who got robbed!” But things are not always what they seem. It’s perfectly reasonable to not reward criminals and to punish honest guys! If we do, the law of attraction says we will get more criminality.

However, by smashing and executing the criminals we create more criminality because we strengthen the vibration of hatred and intolerance. The lesson repeats. The only way to ensure zero criminality is to always take the path of tolerance. It’s really, really hard; especially in a world where it often appears that crime does pay. The only reason we have made it this far is that enough people performed little miracles of tolerance in their daily lives. They strengthened the vibe of love enough so that the human race is finally able to BEGIN to confront the evil we have created on this planet. We still have a long way to go.

The real action is beyond the veil of duality. The duality is just there to help us see past the overt materialism of our world. The duality presents us with non-optimum situations so we can see the real purpose behind the situation. That purpose is always benign because consciousness is pure love.

I don’t understand why this is, frankly. I don’t understand why places like earth exist; I’m not that aware yet. I don’t understand why we have to go through this nonsense in the physical universe – the suffering, the injustice, the misery. Consciousness is pure love, we don’t need physical bodies, really. When we release attachment to the body we find the One consciousness, and pure joy. But apparently we decided to play the game of “Physical Universe,” and now it’s a really, really big deal. We made it that way, I guess, by our accumulated karma, so now we have to release that karma. The only way to do that is through tolerance and love. That’s what enlightened people throughout history have been telling us.

It took me long enough, but I’m finally listening.

Introduction

It is clear now that the new Trump administration has a heavy military flavor. Some people think that Trump is assembling a bunch of reactionaries who want to impose overt fascism, in some sort of coup d’etat. The positive interpretation is that the corruption in our nation’s capital has reached such an extreme that military action may be necessary to clean up the mess.  There are two potential timelines, and we the people will collectively determine which road we go down. No one knows what the future will bring. However, we can influence what will manifest in the future by understanding the power of our own co-creative consciousness.  One thing is certain: Trump’s election is making people think about the future.

Corruption Is Endemic

It is clear that our political process no longer works. When my snowblower broke down, it had to be taken apart and a new carburetor installed – the old one was simply unusable. When a political system breaks down, you have to clean house and start over. CBS News reported that the Congressional approval rating in November 2015 was 11%. An average of all polling data between October 28 and December 20, 2016 shows the Congressional approval rate at 14.2%,[1] slightly up after the election. However, when 86 people out of 100 don’t approve of what their elected officials are doing, representative democracy no longer exists. The system is corrupt, it is rigged, and we all know it.

240 years ago we faced the same problem: an unresponsive government ruled by special interests. Remember that our country was established during the Revolutionary War. Our founding fathers were armed combatants, determined to overthrow an established government that did not represent the common good. Today, we face the same problem. Our government is controlled by a private corporate elite, but the solution back then is not the solution we need today.

Although America’s War of Independence was a military conflict, the revolution itself was grounded in ideas (not dogma or ideology). Read the Federalist Papers, a collection of essays by those who built the philosophical foundation for the new country back in the 18th century. The founders of this country were idealists; but in the 1760s and 1770s we were still mired in the old consciousness. It was important to have a philosophical underpinning for the new country, but it was also necessary to take to the streets. Fortunately, in 2016, violent revolution is no longer necessary. We now have an almost instantaneous worldwide communication network where ideas can be transmitted around the world almost instantaneously; in this environment violent revolution will be harmful, not helpful. The final battle between good and evil is being fought in the mental plane; in our hearts and minds. It is a battle of ideas, not armaments and soldiers. The ideas we choose will determine the timeline and the manifestations that occur on that timeline.

The election of Donald Trump – like him or hate him – was a wakeup call to the entire nation, just as the Boston Tea Party was three centuries ago, on December 16, 1773. If you recall your history, the Americans threw 342 chests of excellent British tea into Boston Harbor. The British Parliament, outraged by the destruction of British property, then enacted the Coercive Acts in 1774. The Coercive Acts closed Boston to merchant shipping, established formal British military rule in Massachusetts, made British officials immune to criminal prosecution in America, and required colonists to quarter British troops. The colonists subsequently called the first Continental Congress to consider a united American resistance to the British.[2]  Today, the passage of the Patriot Acts, the Military Commissions Act, the Homegrown Terrorist Protection Act, the Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act of 2016 (which essentially creates a U.S. Ministry of Truth) and many others, have essentially gutted our constitution. Historically the parallels are never exact, but history tends to repeat itself if the lesson isn’t learned. Well, the lesson is again up for review, but this time we cannot fail!

Who Is to Blame?

Before we blame Trump or the Republicans (if you are a Hillary supporter) or Clinton and the Democrats (if you are a Trump supporter) for the mess we’re in, consider the idea that these actors were placed on the political stage by the decisions we have all made. We the people have caused the problems our country faces. Our collective consciousness determines what is possible and what isn’t, just as the condition of the soil determines what can and cannot grow.[3] We have voted into Congress and the White House, decade after decade, people who were less and less concerned with the common good than with their own political and personal good; who abandoned their responsibility to the nation. When President Eisenhower told us to beware the military-industrial complex in January 1961, we didn’t listen. When JFK was assassinated in 1963 we did nothing. As our country has become further corrupted we have continued to vote for representatives from the same two parties, over and over again, trying to get different results. As a result, during the past 70 years, a private, trans-national security state has developed. Their unacknowledged special access programs have been out of the purview of our elected officials since Eisenhower’s warning. We the people have allowed that by choosing security over freedom; consumerism over idealism. Now, the situation is totally out of control. This planet is now a corporate fascism run by an unelected planet-wide security state. Public governments and their – our – elected officials are almost completely out of the loop. We are living in a Matrix of lies and deceit, and the heart of it is here in the United States.

On the surface, it is perfectly reasonable to conclude that the election of Trump is a continuation of the inevitable march into darkness – and many people have already so concluded.  But things are not always as they seem. When the truth comes out people are going to be shocked. Our nation is going to be turned upside down, and the Trump election was just the beginning. Now, discernment is more important than ever. Some mainstream press outlets, in a desperate attempt to save the old order, have come up with a list of “fake news” sites from a group calling itself PropOrNot, most of which are guilty only of expressing alternative opinions, and some of which are on the leading edge exposing corruption.  (Yes, there ARE fake news sites, but “fake news” is rapidly becoming a symbol for “information I don’t agree with.” Please use your own discretion).

One of the best ways to get a point across is to constantly repeat it. However, just because something is repeated over and over doesn’t mean it’s true. Repetition is an accepted tenet in advertising and in propaganda. Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi propaganda minister, said,

“It would not be impossible to prove with sufficient repetition and psychological understanding of the people concerned that a square is in fact a circle. What after all are a square and a circle? They are mere words and words can be molded until they clothe ideas in disguise.”[4]

Goebbels also said,

“Not every item of news should be published. Rather must those who control news policies endeavor to make every item of news serve a certain purpose.”[5]

In journalism this technique is called framing. (I have always wondered what the little phrase at the top of the New York Times meant: “All the news that’s fit to print.”) If you watch or listen to the news with discernment, you can tell if framing is occurring: do the stories have a similar theme, or do they make you think a certain way?

And finally,

“Propaganda must facilitate the displacement of aggression by specifying the targets for hatred.”[6]

This last quote is illuminating because politics today (at least in the US) is mostly emotional rabble-rousing and argumentation against someone or something; rational debate and tolerance for opposing viewpoints is almost totally lacking. Moreover, as in the second quote, there is a disturbing trend toward propagandizing the news, even in traditional, professional outlets, making it very difficult to discern truth from disinformation.[7] For example, on November 24th the Washington Post published a story – "Russian propaganda effort helped spread ‘fake news’ during election, experts say" – that has been the basis for ridiculous claims that Russian hackers interfered with the U.S. election. The Post has since distanced itself from that story with an editorial comment appended to the article, which you can read here: https://www.washingtonian.com/2016/12/07/washington-post-appends-editors-note-russian-propaganda-story/

However, the idea that “the Russians” tried to undermine the U.S. election has made it into the public consciousness. It has been repeated by other news outlets and is now accepted as factual. This is a good example of Goebbels’ first and third quotes above.

What about Trump?

Donald Trump has made things worse with his crudity, but I believe that Trump himself is just a passing character on the stage, a bit character, a man who can and will be swept aside if he goes too far. The intelligence I read says that Trump right now is backed by white hats in the military and intelligence sectors, but that could change if he doesn’t do what history has placed him in the White House to do – act as a true change agent for the common good. As I said in a previous blog post, Trump is the smelly, ugly guy with the wrecking ball who is here to help knock down the decrepit old structure so the bright new shiny building can be erected. He is only a precursor to real change, not the end result. If he screws up he may be quickly removed.

This opinion, of course, presupposes a positive outcome. But what’s the point of living at all if you believe events will inevitably take us into the dumpster? What’s the point of nattering and thus creating potential negative outcomes?  All of our complaining (and inspiration) goes directly into the planetary consciousness, thus shaping the collective consciousness, and our collective future.

We either believe in the ascension process or not. Ascension is the idea that the human race can finally cease our petty squabbling and work together on a planet-wide basis. Being negative just brings about negative outcomes. Personally, I have an unshakeable belief that we are headed toward a positive future. It may get ugly for a while as the filth gets cleaned up, but when light penetrates darkness some horrible stuff is going to be uncovered. Are we in the light enough to confront it and hold to our spiritual beliefs? I think we are / will be.

2016–2019 are going to be whirlwind years for change here in the US and on the planet. The momentum has just begun in 2016 with the election of Donald Trump.

The Second Revolution

In the US we have now reached a level of tension and polarity that, historically, could only be resolved by a revolution. We’re either going to embrace the Constitution and the Bill of Rights – the ideas laid down by the founding fathers – or we’re going to go down as a nation. That is what the old order is hoping. Get ready folks: Soon, names are going to be named, and butts are going to get kicked. And some of those butts belong to people that will shock us.

Personally I think Trump is just a temporary catalyst to get the changes underway. The rats nest in Washington DC needs cleaning up, and we are on our way to that. My guess is that we are going to have a peaceful revolution, backed by white hats in the military and intelligence community who are going to obey their oaths to uphold and defend the constitution of the United States. But chicken littles, “experts,” and press outlets – both mainstream and alternative – are going spread chaos, fear, and anger as fast as they can in an attempt to keep people fighting each other, as Goebbels’ third quote above advises. A good “straw man” is always helpful to stir up the emotions! The point is that despite perfectly good reasons for it, contention is contention, no matter what opinions you hold, and contention creates negative energy.

Problem resolution through conflict and fighting is the paradigm of the old order, and insanity is doing the same things over and over, expecting different results. We can’t solve problems with the same consciousness that created them in the first place. Therefore, we can’t just talk about peace, tolerance, and love, we have to demonstrate it. We have to walk the walk and not just talk the talk in our lives, every day.

(In the near future, if I am right, the names of those who have committed crimes against humanity will become known. Well, the only solution to that is tolerance even though it is perfectly reasonable to put these guys up in front of a firing squad. At that time the feeling will be, as King Steven said to his executioners about 100 discovered traitors, “I want them all out of this world before nightfall.”[8] But to kill those who have killed is to immerse ourselves in the consciousness of the old paradigm for another 5,000 years. The solution to injustice is not more hatred! My suggestion is to create a website called Revelations that has a pic, a name underneath, and a list of crimes committed. Getting outted in front of 7.5 billion people is punishment enough! That is down the road a little way though. We are still in the beginning stages of an ascent to fourth-level consciousness [planetary consciousness]).

The Final Battle

The battle between good and evil is here, right now, and it’s in the hearts and minds of the people. Either we raise our consciousness to the next level or we will sink back into the darkness. Donald Trump is just a symbol of the coming battle. It was never Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton, or even freedom versus fascism; it’s love versus hate. It’s ALWAYS been love vs. hate. If hate prevails during this 2016–2019 window, expect war, poverty, injustice, crime, scarcity, and violence to continue during the current millennium, for we will have burned our future path into the collective consciousness. Our civilization will collapse and it will be OUR fault, not evil bankers, politicians, or David Icke’s alien masters. We are writing the script; the actors on the stage can only say the lines and do the things we write into the script. It’s called co-creation. Every planetary society is sovereign IF the people stop fighting each other and pull together!

The benevolent ETs aren’t going to land on the White House lawn; the angels aren’t going to come down from the skies and save us. We’re going to have to do this ourselves. Tolerance and compassion are the keys to a spiritual victory, and action when required. In our daily lives we are always presented with choices: get mad at people or try to understand them. Millions of these choices are made every day in this country and around the world, and every single one of them counts. Collectively, they have a profound effect on the mass consciousness and are tallied up on the board, energetically. Winning those battles will give us the victory.

All of the significant action is on the mental plane now. There is an invisible, holographic, programmable field of subtle energy that surrounds our planet, containing the thoughts, beliefs, and choices of 7.5 billion people. It dynamically interacts with every person on the planet. It’s what makes co-creation work. It’s real, not new-age bullshit. Our thoughts and actions create and maintain it.

The human energy grid stores all thoughts and, through the law of attraction, influences our individual thoughts and actions. Some guy in New Delhi is contributing to the collective consciousness just as much as someone in Berlin or Chicago or Beijing. Distance is irrelevant. This invisible grid of energy is consciousness-based; it’s like the script to a stage play, and determines what the actors think, say, and do on stage. We are writing that script, we have been writing it for 5,000 years. Now, as awareness increases, we are finally becoming aware of our co-creative power. It’s time we understood that our spirituality is the most important factor in whether we make it to a new civilization. In this crucial period, the decisions we make every day are counted in the ledger, and determine the balance. Make your decisions for a bright new world! It’s easy to say, “Choose compassion over anger,” but it’s the most important thing we do in our lives.

[8] Quote from  an Ellis Peters novel about the English Civil War in the 12th century, One Corpse Too Many.

For most people in the US, this election was a shocker. No one really expected Donald Trump to win. Trump is looked on by the majority as an attention-seeker, a TV personality, a buffoon, almost a cartoon character. However, an interesting fact emerged from the exit polling: 60% of voters on both sides felt that their candidate was not a good one. In other words, 60% of the people who voted for Hillary thought she wasn’t a good candidate, and 60% of the people who voted for Trump didn’t think he was a good candidate! But Trump won because everyone felt that a radical change was needed.

In essence, Hillary was the candidate of the old system. Trump is a change-activator. He’s a temporary solution. You are looking at a property and you see a really nice piece of land. But the property itself is falling apart. The first guy you call is the wrecker – who comes in with a big crane and destroys the place with one of those huge wrecking balls. It’s dirty, it’s messy, and it makes a lot of noise and destruction. But you have to get rid of the decrepit structure before you can rebuild that nice, shiny new property. Trump is the wrecker. He’s only there for a short time, and everybody can’t wait until he’s done so they can get to work building something meaningful. Almost all of my friends are appalled that Hillary didn’t win – especially the women, who see Trump as some kind of barbaric rapist who hates women. In the last post I talked about “historical forces.” I believe Trump is a necessary part of the energetic shift to a new consciousness. He represents the action component of the collective decision to reach a higher consciousness.

Of course this will seem ludicrous and absurd to most people, who regard Trump as a major step backward. One African American guy even said it was a return to the Jim Crow days. It’s perfectly understandable why people think this. However, things are not always as they seem! Hillary was the step backward, even though she appeared to represent a step forward: the first woman president. But Hillary represented the status quo, the same old two-party dictatorship that has ruled America for the past century, the old decrepit house. If we are going to truly make a shift forward, we have to remove the corrupt political system that exists. Ladies and germs, you don’t have a democracy when the Congressional approval rate is around 10% – 13%! How can we say we have representative democracy when 9 out of 10 people don’t approve of what their representatives are doing? The simple answer is that we can’t. We need a barbarian at the gates of DC to knock down a few of those gates so we can reset to a system that works better and represents people instead of corporations.

The Clinton campaign blew it for the Democrats. Hillary and her crew forced out Bernie Sanders, who was the true alternative to Trump. If Bernie would have gotten the nomination he might have won. But the old order had to assert its authority and Bernie was swept aside, just as Hillary was swept aside. Still, my intuition tells me that Trump, in the long run, is the stronger, and necessary, personality who will force change. Bernie is too nice a guy.

I wouldn't be surprised if Trump didn't finish his term. If The Donald goes overboard, or pisses off too many people, an impeachment vote might succeed in the Congress.

I didn’t vote for either Hillary or Trump; I voted third party. However, Trump is the kind of bloke who has a chance to make a big dent in the endemic corruption that is Washington DC. Like a bull, Trump doesn’t seem very bright – but once he sets his mind on something he will go after it fearlessly. We need someone fearless right now in Washington who will represent the people of the United States, not the corporate network and the special interests that run this planet. Trump will not be intimidated by threats. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if some “lone nut” took a shot at The Donald. He represents (like the wrecking ball) a serious threat to the Matrix of lies and corruption that has been established on the planet.

The Republicans won both the House and the Senate so if Trump has an agenda he will likely be able to push it through if he can mend fences with the rest of the party. The problem is that although Trump ran as a Republican he is a maverick (and a former Democrat). He alienated many of the party big-wigs in his run to the presidency. All of this speaks to a chaotic period for the new president.

This is fitting because the US right now is in a chaotic situation. I’m speaking more in a mathematical sense: In a chaotic situation the number of possible outcomes increases very rapidly as the old system breaks down. Look for a lot of uncertainty and even bewildering changes during the next year or two in the US as the old order falls apart and a new international system of finance comes on board. Keep in mind that chaos is necessary to advance to a higher level, and that chaos leads to a situation of flux as the old rules become outdated and new rules are written into the public consciousness. During periods like these the system has an opportunity to advance to a higher level. Pay no attention to Chicken Littles in the media who predict disaster (they ALWAYS predict disaster).

Unlike almost everyone I see this election as a step forward: a firm and determined choice to leave the old order behind. The problem is that we have not decided on a course for the future. Right now Donald Trump is a perfect representation of the collective consciousness of the US: a guy who knows that something is very wrong but isn’t quite sure how to set about changing it. Trump is a person of action who will sweep with a very large broom. That broom may sweep out some of the good with the bad, but history will eventually see this election as the first step toward a true change in consciousness (for the better).

 

Seminal Events in History

I have always been fascinated by history, and what appears to be historical forces that seemingly change the course of events.

The Mongol Empire, for example, was the largest contiguous land empire in world history. Back in the 13th century it had literally overrun all of Asia and was on the verge of conquering Europe as well, when their khan (Great Khan Ögedei) died in 1241. The western Mongol army withdrew from Central Europe the next year to choose a successor. What would have happened if the Mongols had completed their conquest? They would have controlled most of the continent of Asia and Europe as well. World history may have changed on this one event.

In 1066, William of Normandy invaded England and won the Battle of Hastings. The infusion of Norman blood with the native Saxons created a new race that established the British Empire throughout the world, and encoded democratic principles in all of its colonies. The American Constitution was based on these principles.

Led by a young British MP named William Wilberforce, the Slavery Abolition Act or Emancipation Act of 1833 led to the legal abolishment of slavery throughout the British empire, and eventually throughout the world. This was an important step toward equality for all races and cultures.

The signing of the American Constitution and the Bill of Rights created a document that led to the establishment of a country that affected the entire history of the twentieth century.

Obviously there are many other events as well. Were these events merely coincidence, or were they part of some grand divine plan? Is there really such a thing as “historical forces” that guide human evolution?

Here is a more concrete example. I have been reading an interesting historical fiction book about the French Revolution, titled Master at Arms, by Rafael Sabatini. In it he describes the attempt in 1793 by the Comte de Puisaye and French emigres in England, with English help, to reestablish the king of France and the monarchy, during the Reign of Terror. The narrative is a sympathetic portrait of Puisaye, who is determined not to allow the sanscoulottes to further (in his estimation) damage France, and an indictment of Colonel d’Hervilly, the leader of the French emigres, who is portrayed as supercilious and incompetent. The story shows how d’Hervilly, with no battle experience, intrigued to place himself at the head of the combined Royalist forces, and destroyed the Royalists’ effort almost single-handedly.

Here is how Sabatini narrates it:

At Portsmouth [England] a fleet under Sir John Warren was rapidly fitting out, and the supply ships were loading the materiel, which comprised 24,000 muskets, clothing and footgear for 60,000 men, and a vast store of food and ammunition. Puisaye might flatter himself that all this was the miracle wrought by his energy, vision, and intelligence, and persuasive powers. His satisfaction, however, was darkened by the jealousies and intrigues that seldom fail to poison any Gallic enterprise. At every step these came to create obstacles for him and to add to the difficulties inseparable from so Herculean  labor as his. The vain and pompous d’Hervilly perceived here his chance to magnify himself. Endowed with few talents save the talent of intrigue, and endowed with this one to excess, he so shrewdly exercised it as to obtain, despite the fact that he held only a colonel’s rank, the chief command of the actual emigre contingents. In view of the support he had won, the four generals commanding the four brigades made no protest beyond relinquishing their commands, since it was impossible that they should serve under a man of inferior rank. Of those nobles who had raised the other regiments, La Chatre, Dresneay, and Hector adopted the same course. Nor did it end there. Every colonel in the service retired rather than submit to one whose rank was not superior to their own, with the result that the regiments were left under the command of lieutenant-colonels, who were not of the same authority over either officers or men.

The story goes on to show how the arrogant d’Hervilly, at every turn, almost single-handedly ruined the chances of the Royalists, and how the Royalists’ own arrogance and contempt for the Chouans – the peasant Bretton guerilla army who would do most of the fighting – lost the battle before it ever began.

All of Sabatini’s stories are engaging, and I found myself (as the author intended) getting very angry at d’Hervilly and the other Royalist officers as their laziness, incompetence, and hauteur toward their troops ruined the effort of Puisaye and thousands of his loyal followers.

This story got me thinking: Why are there antisocial persons like d’Hervilly in the world? Are people like d’Hervilly part of some historical force that is placed to alter history? When I say antisocial I don’t mean people who lack life experience or intelligence, but those who consciously work to destroy those around them. We’ve all met at least one in our lives.

If we look for a metaphysical explanation we might find an answer, because it doesn’t seem that Spirit would ever create a useless person, despite Henry Kissingers’s categorization of the elderly as “useless eaters.”  The great masters and spiritual leaders have always told us that each person is a valuable and divine aspect of a higher consciousness, and that from Spirit’s POV, all incarnated beings are of equal importance.

While I was contemplating the deviousness of d’Hervilly, I was shown a ... vision, I’d suppose you’d call it.

The Vision

The One consciousness, of which we are but physical aspects, divides itself into “good guys” and “bad guys” in order to play a game. To the good guys – those who are aware of Spirit – the actions of the bad guys are despicable, as they destroy families, groups, and causes. But from the viewpoint of Spirit, perhaps, the bad guys are necessary, and in fact, sometimes play important roles. Men like d”Hervilly are sometimes in place to break up movements that do not lead to an evolution toward the light.

The mission of the Royalists after the French Revolution was to reestablish the old, rigid caste system whereby the aristocrats lived in splendor on the backs of the other 99% of the population. Thus d’Hervilly (according to the vision) was there to ensure that Puisaye’s reestablishment of the monarchy failed. The “bad guys” were actually the good guys, from Spirit’s POV. I was also shown that in order to play the part of “bad guy,” a being must by definition have minimal awareness of self and the dynamics of life, and must be selfishly self-centered. How else could a divine aspect of the Creator perform such a role? It would be a defilement of their own integrity.

From this POV, to perform the role of “bad guy” is an immense sacrifice and a sacred duty. Consider the being (the vision said) who incarnated as d’Hervilly, just before he entered the body. He is going through his life mission and is being shown the potentials of what might happen in his life. The potentials exist for the Revolution and the breakup of a stifling caste system that has no potential for evolvement toward the light, and the inevitable attempt to reestablish it. The being known as d’Hervilly says, “All right, if the potentials are manifested I will intrigue and destroy the movement to reestablish my group, becoming a traitor to it and ensuring that I am reviled.”

Now that’s an unenviable life assignment! That would be a heavy assignment even for an old soul, but a very important one that appears on the surface to be of the dark, but is actually working for the light Thus the saying, “Things are not always as they seem.”

In Master at Arms, another dilemma is presented. The Vicomtesse Ballenger, herself a Royalist and the wife of the second in command, falls in love with General Hoche of the enemy Republican army, surreptitiously sending him the Royalist battle plans. She is regarded by the Royalists, after their defeat, as a traitor and a harlot. However, we know that love is the Om, the fundamental vibration of the universe.

Is it possible for love to act falsely? Can love cause evil actions? As I contemplated this I realized that love might cause one to change course; and to a political faction, or someone with a cause, such an action might be regarded as a betrayal. But the fundamental intention of love is always to uplift and support. Love, it seems, is an emotion that transcends the duality.

The next vision I was given was the earth, the human race, as a gigantic circuit board. I was told, “The resistors in the circuit board diminish and stop the flow of electricity to certain areas. These are the bad guys. They are necessary in order to redirect the flow of energy in a different direction, like a dam that redirects water for irrigation.”

“Are the resistors evil because they do not allow a free flow of energy?” I was asked. “All of the components are necessary for proper functioning of the electronic device. Without the resistors there would be chaos.” As with all of these visions from Spirit I have had over the decades, it came with complete, 100% certainty and a completely loving, positive feeling.

A part of me says that this is absurd, because antisocial people like d’Hervilly maim and kill and torture without mercy, and seemingly at random. There cannot be an enlightened purpose for activities like this. I simply don’t believe that all of these “bad guys” are necessary. But of course I don’t see the whole picture.

Consequences

Interestingly, the defeat of the Royalists paved the way for the dictator and militarist Napoleon, who further shook up French society. After Napoleon was finally defeated in 1815, the Bourbons were restored to the throne, with the brother of executed King Louis XVI becoming King Louis XVIII. On the surface it appeared that nothing had changed – but appearances can be deceiving! The old France – the rigid France where the supremacy of the aristocracy was unquestioned, by all social strata – was dead forever. This was, I was told, an advance because it allowed a little more light to penetrate into the planet.

In a previous vision I saw the purpose for both world wars in the 20th century, which was  the opening of communication lines, and greater understanding, between cultures and nations of the world. The two world wars allowed a LOT more light to penetrate through the veil. My reaction to this was shock and anger. “You are telling me that 40 million people were killed in WW II and 20 million in WW I just for that?” The answer was, “Every single being was shown the potentials before they incarnated, and agreed to it.” Oh really, I said. You are saying that 60 million people had to suffer just so that more light could come into the planet? And what about all the other wars in the 20th century? The answer I got was a feeling of incredible love and understanding. “YES,” was the reply.

Again, I think this explanation is not only absurd but contemptible. However, Spirit never argues with me. When I become too intellectual or too angry I just get a big smile and a hug and no more explanations (probably because my vibe becomes incompatible with the higher vibrations of Spirit).

When something like this happens to you it simply overpowers you with love and total certainty that everything is perfect, and that the world is evolving exactly as it should. It completely negates my intellect, knocks out all arguments, and I experience literally 100% certainty that everything is perfect. I can’t explain it rationally because it makes no sense intellectually. It isn’t FACTUAL! But the reality of the communication from Spirit is so powerful it cannot be denied, even though, when it’s over, my humanness DOES deny it. That is the curse of being me – with increased self awareness comes greater perception, both of the good and the bad. As I grow in self awareness I can see more of the bad and where it is coming from. Sometimes it’s terrifying. And, frankly, I no longer believe in the necessity for suffering: it seems evil and pointless. But again, I am just an average Joe with no claim to any superior understanding of life or people.

I think that the visions come to remind me that Spirit does exist, that all of us are playing an incredible, amazing, magnificent game here on earth, and that death is completely illusory. Part of that game is that the vast majority of us remain clueless (“the veil”). Sometimes life on earth makes little sense to me. I know that in our non-physical state we are perfect and filled with joy and love, so why do we need a physical universe where there is so much suffering? The answer always comes back, that not one of us down here would miss this for all the gold in the world.

My father always used to say to me, “Kenny, what if the answer to everything is that there is no answer?” I think my father was very wise, because the older I get the less I know. Maybe there is no answer, maybe there is no Theory of Everything, except that the world is perfect, that all of us are perfect, and that these lives we lead have incredible purpose, even if  many of us don’t know what that purpose is.

The Elephant and the Fly

Here is a humorous story told by my friend Khurshid Ali, who lives in Germany.

One day an elephant was searching for a way to cross a swollen river and discovered a sturdy bridge. Just then a fly alighted on his back. “Dear elephant,” the fly said, “Would you carry me on your back across the water? My wing is broken and I can barely fly.”

The elephant said, “Sure.”

Just as the elephant was about to take the first step, the fly said, “I am very worried about this bridge. Our combined weight may collapse it.”

The elephant smiled and began to walk.

“Look out for that loose board!” the fly advised as the elephant took his first steps, but the elephant, unperturbed, kept going.

“Do you see that rock up ahead?” the fly said anxiously. “Don’t trip on it!”

The elephant did not reply, but kept going very calmly.

In a similar fashion the elephant and the fly successfully negotiated the bridge, the fly pointing out obstacles for the elephant to avoid. After they reached the other side the fly said, “Whew! That was a harrowing journey! But with my help we made it.”

The elephant flopped his ears in amusement.

The fly pulled out his business card and said, “If you ever need any more advice, my number is on the card.”

“Thank you,” the elephant said gravely, trying not to laugh.

In the story, the fly represents the ego and the elephant represents life.

I thought this story hilarious because that is just how my own ego works.

What if we lived in a multi-dimensional universe?

What would such a place be like?

A multiverse would contain multiple universes and dimensions, and would allow communication and travel within them and between them (obviously). That’s a real stretch from current scientific belief, which states that the earth is the only planet with intelligent life, and only one universe exists – the one we see with our telescopes or are able to detect with current instruments.

A multiverse would have to have some sort of barrier or threshold – something that denied primitive, aggressive, immature, or barbaric races from access to it. That barrier would be a barrier of knowledge and physics, as well as spiritual advancement (consciousness).  A multiverse with many dimensions would separate the wheat from the chaff and prevent crazy beings from hip-hopping around, destroying everything in existence. Beings with lower awareness would only perceive one universe and would be contained there.

What would a multiverse barrier be? Well, the sound barrier is around 750 mph. Once you break through the sound barrier you hear a pop and then you are travelling faster than can be traced by hearing. In a multiverse, the access point might be the light barrier. Our physics tells us that the speed of light is constant in all frames of reference – no matter what your velocity in your frame of reference, all reference frames measure the speed of light the same. Our physics  regards the speed of light as unattainable. The Special Theory of Relativity says that as you approach the speed of light time contracts, length dilates, and mass increases. This is a direct consequence of the immutability of the measurement of the speed of light in all reference frames.

But we know that the Milky Way galaxy is 100,000 light years in diameter, which means that it takes light 100,000 years to go from one end to the other at the speed of light. To say hi to your friend at the other end of the galaxy and get a reply would take 200,000 years. This physics is clearly absurd and unworkable in a multiverse.

There are hundreds of billions of galaxies just in this universe, and the number of stars is at least 1022, an almost uncountable number. The number of planets is even greater than that. Unless the designer of the universe is a moron, there would have to be a way to quickly access the galaxies, stars, and planets in the universe. And there must also be a way to access universes at higher or lower dimensions or vibrations. Therefore the barrier of light must be crossed before a civilization has access to the multiverse. Moreover, in order to access the multiverse you would need advanced physics, and an advanced consciousness. Without an advanced consciousness your vibe wouldn’t be high enough to access the stars, much less go to other dimensions. You couldn’t comprehend the physics, much less develop it. That is where we are now on planet earth.

Let’s leave out the possibility of temporal travel. Whistleblowers from the secret space programs and other black programs have discussed temporal travel and say that it exists. There must be rules regulating travel in time so that paradoxes and temporal discontinuities don’t wreck the fabric of existence. However, for the moment, let’s talk about communicating and traveling in a multiverse. To access a galaxy on the other side of the universe, some sort of wormhole or “spacetime folding” must exist. But this physics is at a level far beyond the physics in a fossil-fuel matrix. Such a physics is beyond the light barrier, and even the conceptualization of it is beyond a spiritual threshold that cannot be crossed without a shift in consciousness.

In a multiverse it would be possible to phase out of 3-dimensional space and into another location or dimension. To a person trapped within the barrier, this manifestation and de-manifestation would appear to be magic. A being from a higher dimension or location could communicate with a being in a lower dimension even though that higher being would not be fully materialized. A person communicated to in this way might conceive the idea of angels and demons. A burning bush or a cloud might appear, and a voice out of it giving instructions to the inhabitants, who would write them down and declare that they came from God (or perhaps a demon). Entire religions or occult beliefs might be created around this phenomenon. A person who had such an experience might be deemed crazy, and placed in a mental institution.

When a civilization advances in knowledge far enough, an entire genre called “science fiction” might appear. The concepts in this genre would be presented as something unrealized – things that might be attained someday – fictional because of course we are the only planet with intelligent life in the universe, and fossil fuel technology is as high as it gets – even though the concepts presented might already be a reality. A multiverse would be billions of years old, and so would have a continuum of civilizations at various levels of knowledge and spiritual advancement, and advanced technology beyond the imagination of a fossil fuel civilization.

Some planets would be at a very low level of development, and some would be at a very high level. In a previous blog post we talked about one galactic year being around 225 million terrestrial years, and how a civilization at a higher level of vibration would experience time much differently than a civilization at a lower level of vibration. To a very young civilization with a primitive physics, one galactic year would be an incomprehensible period of time, even though the universe itself might be at least 13.5 billion years old according to their own science, with civilizations highly advanced spiritually.

In a multiverse, communication and travel would be possible within universes and between universes and dimensions. A planet like earth, which is just starting out, would be at a very low level of knowledge and advancement compared to other civilizations. In fact, on such a planet the belief might exist that they were the only planet with intelligent life in the entire universe! On this planet, people would also believe that when you die you are dead, which would lead to a frantic competition for scarce resources. Resources would be scarce because fossil fuel technology is as high as it gets, and a fossil-fuel physics would be incapable of extracting energy from the vacuum. Such advanced concepts would be pilloried as laughable “perpetual motion machines,” or “science fiction delusion,” and the people who promoted them regarded as lunatics.

The people on such a planet wouldn’t be able to get along because, as James Stewart said to Clarence the angel, all of their ideas would be “screwy.” On such a planet the inhabitants would be easily led. Billions of people could live out their lives in a sort of “matrix” of false beliefs, even though technology existed from the multiverse that could solve all of their problems.

However, the inhabitants of such a planet would still possess enormous co-creative power. To get beyond the barrier, they would have to understand themselves as incarnated aspects of a divine consciousness that created and maintains the multiverse. Unless and until they did so, the inhabitants would continue to struggle, sweat, and live lives that were much more difficult than they should be.

In a multiverse billions of years old, medical technology would exist to cure all diseases at all dimensional levels, even primitive and dense levels such as existed on a struggling, “new” planet with a very young race.

However, civilizations would exist that wished to take advantage of such a young planet – civilizations that have gotten their hands on galactic technology, but who have not advanced past a primitive, confrontational consciousness. The inhabitants of such a young planet would therefore be very vulnerable to psychological manipulation, and could be easily subjugated, just as Europeans with superior technology conquered indigenous races on earth.

Within the matrix or cocoon of consciousness and belief of a very young civilization, the above discussion and its concepts would be officially rejected as the ravings of mentally unstable persons. Such people would be described as kooks or nuts, because “everybody knows” that human nature is savage and barbaric, and being tough and aggressive is the only way to advance in life. Being a good fighter would be highly admired whereas cooperation, tolerance, and love would be regarded as weak, soft, and “sissified.” The military would be highly regarded, and criticism of the military, or war, would be met with ridicule and contempt.

On a planet with these belief systems, it would be possible for breakaway civilizations to plunder the planet’s economic wealth, building infrastructures on the other planets and moons of the solar system, while the inhabitants believed that the resulting scarcity is “just the way it is, that’s life.” An entire culture or civilization could be built off-planet while the inhabitants lived their entire lives within this planetary matrix, with only a few outliers being any the wiser. Even tangential mention of these ideas would, of course, be regarded as insane by the inhabitants in their matrix.

A corporate network would be a very efficient way of organizing and controlling society within the planetary matrix. By definition a corporation is a separate and independent legal entity, and the people running them would be greatly shielded from prosecution. Therefore a group of allied corporations could act independently and with much freedom from the governments within the matrix. By giving technology to this corporate network, the planetary matrix could not only be maintained, but the network could release dribbles of technology to fund the corporations who manufactured it. Those corporations would effectively use slave labor in their manufacturing facilities (and place netting on the roofs of their buildings to prevent workers from jumping off), thus increasing their profits, and new versions of this technology would come out every so often, accompanied by commercial advertising that claimed remarkable new innovations in the latest electronic devices.

Fossil fuel technology would be maintained by showing primitive fossil fuel travelling carriages, accompanied by commercial advertising showing these vehicles to be the latest and greatest, pointing out features like “blind side” technology, self-guided parking, and hatchback doors that opened with a remote control! The inhabitants within the matrix would be very pleased, knowing that they all had the very latest and greatest technology. The inhabitants would even be encouraged to buy vehicles with remote starters, with apps that could control the vehicle  by anyone in the world through the planetary internet. This appalling feature would be promoted with idea of how cool it is, and commercial advertising would show people with IQs of 90 and the emotional intelligence of children, being very pleased with a new development that would allow anyone on the planet to steal or even remotely control their vehicle, even when it was in motion. Vehicles could be locked, unlocked, or even started from a remote desert island while the inhabitants were on vacation.

Keeping the population occupied would be a masterful way to keep the system in place. Academia would promote the “one world” idea, ridiculing even the suggestion of life from other planets, or higher technology. Religions would also promote the “we are alone” idea, in order to glorify their deities. The primary fossil-fuel space organization on the planet would promote the idea that “someday, we might find microbial life on Mars.” Popular movies would be made, showing how a fossil fuel astronaut landed on another planet in the solar system, and claimed that he was the first human on Mars. The inhabitants would chuckle with glee, knowing that rocket technology was as high as it gets, and hope one day to travel on a rocket vehicle to another planet.

Psychological counseling would be based on talking about ones problems. An artificial compartmentalization of the psyche would be promoted, suggesting that a person had an ego and an id and a subconscious mind, all of which could affect him or her, willy-nilly. Inhabitants who desired to help their fellow human beings would eagerly study various counseling systems, convinced that they were getting the latest and greatest advances in mental health.

A medical system would be promoted that managed disease, with just enough cures to give the inhabitants hope. Diseases like cancer and heart disease would be extensively researched, but decade after decade there would be no cures. People would be encouraged to “stand up” to these diseases, or “fight” them, thus making the inhabitants very happy that they were contributing to a system that was doing all it could to bring health to the population.

When the inhabitants began to get tired of struggling and dying, decade after decade, disclosure of the new technology would be very gradual, keeping the system in place for as long as possible. Those who came forward, suggesting that the people of the planet were being lied to and robbed blind, would be ridiculed as “conspiracy theorists” even as the primary nation on earth had a deteriorating infrastructure and a $20 Trillion debt. “What are you on about?” would be the hue and cry to those who went public. “That’s crazy talk! Shut up and stop whining.”

Distracting the masses would be easy, as professional sports like the “NFL” would promote tough guy concepts, working hand-in-hand with the military, showing fighter planes, soldiers, and flags of the nation before sporting contests, promoting the idea that “fighting for freedom” was the highest calling. The military would be seen as fighting for democratic principles as it conducted brushfire wars in various countries with resources that the corporate network desired for its own use. Persons who protested in any way would be seen as “unpatriotic,” malignant malcontents who do not have their heads on right. Respected public figures such as Supreme Court judges would pillory such people, calling them misguided and stupid. “Just play football dumbass, and keep your mouth shut” would be the cry.

During presidential debates, staged entertainment would be provided. Questions would be carefully chosen, ensuring that nothing of substance was debated. One candidate might be criticized because her husband seduced a woman while still married to the candidate, while the other was criticized because he used locker room language. The inhabitants would be very pleased with this controversy, discussing it at work and which showed that they truly lived in a democracy. Meanwhile the corporate network would ensure that the leaders of the public governments were at least 35 security clearances below need-to-know level, ensuring that no one in the public governments or the fossil fuel militaries rocked the boat, and locking them out of advanced technology.

The inhabitants of such a planet would be entertained by shows depicting human beings as emotionally and intellectually attenuated, or showing them competing with each other in singing contests, or contests of physical strength, or clapping with glee when they won prizes on shows that promoted products from the corporate network. Entertainment that promoted spiritual subjects would be rigorously censured, even though a few might make it to the airwaves. Programs that exposed the matrix would be shuttled off to little-watched channels and networks, and would be roundly jeered for daring to suggest that all was not well.

Civilizations outside the planetary matrix – spiritually advanced civilizations that have already advanced past the barrier – would not be able to interfere overtly. Only that help could be offered that the level of consciousness of the inhabitants had graduated to. Those who looked on would see a population completely ignorant of their power of co-creation, and their complete ignorance of the mental plane. They would see a planet surrounded by a holographic field of subtle energy that maintained all of the ecosystems on the planet, and sustained life. They would see that within this subtle field of energy exists all of the knowledge necessary to graduate to a level of abundance, prosperity, and creative brilliance. They would see that the mechanism necessary to trigger this wonderful data dump for the inhabitants is simply a collective decision to change the direction of their thinking – but the inhabitants, mired in self-defeating beliefs, might never have the intelligence to make this decision. They would shake their heads, wanting to appear on the television sets of the inhabitants and tell them all about it, but they wouldn’t be able to. That’s because free will is the prime directive for all incarnated consciousness, and the inhabitants must make this decision on their own. As a saying goes on the planet, “either use it or lose it.”

The question always is, will the inhabitants of the matrix be able to see past the bullshit that hits their fans every single day?

On this particular planet – which exists in an area of the galaxy devastated by war for millions of years – non-terrestrial races have inserted their DNA into the inhabitants of this very young race, hoping that the inhabitants will discover their spiritual birthright and elevate multiple star systems, many of whose civilizations have degraded to the point where they have lost their spiritual integrity, and knowing they cannot advance without help. This is known as the Great Experiment, and is a very important initiative within this sector of the galaxy. These non-terrestrial races are awed by the emotional range of the inhabitants and their spiritual potential, even as some of them try to take advantage of the inhabitants. On this planet there is a story which illustrates this concept. A scorpion asks an otter whether he can ride on his back to cross the river. “I can help you navigate while you swim as fast as you can.” The otter agrees, but halfway across the scorpion stings the otter and they both go under. Just before they draw their last breaths, the otter asks the scorpion why he stung him. “We will both die now.”  The scorpion replies, “Because I am a scorpion. It’s my nature. ”

The inhabitants within the matrix believe similarly, thinking that “human nature” is savage and barbaric and cannot be changed. Spiritually advanced races see the cosmic irony in this situation, the inhabitants being just a collective decision away from recognizing their incredible co-creative power with the divine consciousness – which fills the multiverse – and is present in every dark nook and cranny, and exists under every rock and in every hermetically sealed prison, whether natural or artificial.

Another irony is that the most recent breakaway civilization, originating from the nation called “Germany,” still operates on a primitive, low level of consciousness and cannot survive the coming energetic shift, despite their advanced technology. Their modus operandi is a top-down, controlling, spiritually dead civilization that resembles the dictatorships of the planet, all of which, without exception throughout the planet’s history, have failed.

This tiny little planet, which the inhabitants have called earth, has been battered for millions of years. Ever since the first vestiges of intelligent life appeared on it, it has been a battleground. The little planet was the focus for the Great Experiment long before the human race was seeded upon it; it has seen planets explode near it, an artificial moon placed in orbit around it, and its solar system infested with races that have agendas on the planet.

But perhaps the little planet that could can graduate, despite the odds against it. From the Great Central Sun, new energies are being released into the universe that travel through every galaxy and every star to every solar system with intelligent life. Perhaps it will be enough. But the inhabitants of the little planet must still make the collective decision to realize their co-creative potential.

The entire sector of this galaxy is waiting with bated breath to see what the inhabitants of the little planet will do.
