I am a writer, editor, and web developer interested in spirituality, science, geometry, and disk golf. I have written 8 books and produced 3 flash movies on You Tube. To see my bio, go to

The social justice movement is (depending on which “side” you are on) either a way to reduce the gross disparities in income between rich and poor (along with a host of other social inequalities) or a Neo-Marxist attempt to destroy Western Civilization.  The truth is somewhere between.

In 1949 George Orwell wrote his famous book 1984, in which he postulated what the world would look like 35 years later. Orwell saw the rise of fascism, Naziism, and intolerance, and speculated that if present trends continued from 1949, the world would eventually turn into a vast surveillance/police  state, which he nicknamed “Big Brother.”

The world HAS turned into a surveillance state, led by big tech giants Google, Facebook, Twitter, Apple, etc., who monitor our communications 24 hours a day. I just saw an Apple commercial for a new “feature” – retinal scanning – which would allow your retinal patterns to be transferred to a database somewhere. That database is likely sitting somewhere in an intelligence agency. We already know that apps like WeChat (which is being used by President-for-life Xi Jinping to create a police/surveillance state in China) and Facebook, and mobile technology, monitor us all the time. Facebook was founded on the same day, in February 2004, that DARPA’s Project Lifelog was terminated (look this up). Big Tech is essentially a tool of the intelligence community. Google’s goal is to collect information on everything and everyone everywhere in the world, and they are doing a good job of that!

So part of Orwell’s nightmare is already happening. But this is the last gasp of the dark army. It will eventually fail. It was begun in the old energy, before December 2012, and must play out in the new timeline. The point is that lightworkers need not be afraid of something that must run its course.

It is instructive to examine the tools used by those with dark agendas. The battle on earth at present is not one between  good and evil, it is one between light and dark. But the battle is being framed as one between good and evil (see my post “Good vs. Evil – Light vs. Dark” on this blog). The “good vs. evil” debate is guaranteed to spawn hatred and contention. That’s the goal of the dark army.

The social justice movement (regardless of its origins, which was probably from the generosity of classic liberalism) has unfortunately morphed into a contentious philosophy that pits victims versus oppressors. Victims are now entire classes of people: women, African Americans, Hispanics, LGBTQ+ – anyone who is considered a “minority.” Oppressors are usually old white guys like me, or entire philosophies like capitalism. The social justice movement now sees capitalism, and even Western civilization itself (which after all was largely built by white guys) as inherently racist and oppressive.

There is little room for discernment, or intelligence, or reasonableness here. It is a worldview based entirely on materialism, which is the hallmark of the dark army. The value of persons  no longer depend on their qualities or abilities, but on their bodies, their skin color, their sex. Those who do not conform have committed what Orwell called thoughtcrime. A thought crime, according to the Oxford Dictionary site, is

a word used in the novel to describe the act of thinking socially unacceptable thoughts or holding opinions that are ideologically distinct from The Party’s.... Thought police, the term for the group in Nineteen Eighty-Four that monitored the populace for any signs of unorthodox thought or action, has also become popular to signify any organization that attempts to suppress freedom of thought.

Source: Oxford Dictionaries, “A look at Orwell’s Newspeak,”

Intelligence is the ability to discern differences between things. The social justice movement in its present form negates the necessity for original thought, objective observation, and discernment. Oppressor classes are automatically racist (or inherently have other pejorative qualities); victim classes are inherently non-racist and socially acceptable.  In Orwell’s book, The Party used the language of doublespeak and newspeak to gradually dumb down populations, so that citizens could be easily manipulated and controlled.

Here is what the Oxford Dictionary site has to say:

Newspeak intended not only to force the populace to conform their thoughts and ideologies towards those of The Party, but to make it impossible to even conceive of any other point of view. For example, one character in the novel mentions that one of The Party’s most chiefly known slogans, “Freedom is Slavery,” will eventually change; for when Newspeak has reached its goals, the very idea of Freedom as defined in this fashion would be impossible for the populace even to imagine. Other Newspeak words illustrate such attempts to control thought and even the populace’s ideas about reality itself: doublethink, for example, means to hold two contradictory beliefs to be true, but without any cognitive dissonance, allowing one to be unaware of actual contradictions. The slogans of The Party, “War is Peace,” “Freedom is Slavery,” and “Ignorance is Strength,” are perfect examples of this phenomenon. Doublethink as a concept is what allows the totalitarian party to thrive without collapsing in on itself: for example, members of The Party can commit acts they know to be immoral while accepting the idea that no act they commit could possibly be immoral.


Does this sound familiar? Examples of doublethink and newspeak are abundant in today’s political landscape. On both “sides.” Here’s one example:  Personally, I couldn’t care less about the Heritage Foundation or their opinions. But the article illustrates some of these Orwellian concepts that are taking hold in society.

In Orwell’s 1984, discernment by the population was frowned upon, for intelligent people see the difference between freedom and tyranny. Dictators don’t like this! In the US today, the fake “good vs. evil” debate perpetuates Orwell’s degenerative Newspeak ideas. People are automatically racist or evil depending on their body type, or what they believe, if it contradicts the prevailing ideas as promoted in mass media. It’s a great way to negate the principle of free speech, and religious principles such as freedom of belief. This, again, is the work of the dark army. Dictators and totalitarian governments throughout history have suppressed and banned free speech and freedom of belief and religion. It is happening all over the world today.

But there is a solution to this madness for individuals, as I pointed out in the last post. Good and evil are entirely subjective and will lead to pointless, never-ending arguments and conflict. But light and dark transcend “sides.” It is easy to see whether a person is exercising tolerance, compassion, and love. It is easy to see whether a person demonstrates hatred and intolerance. People are not inherently anything (except children of God)  – because every human being has free will. Therefore, each individual can change his or her mind at any time.

Having your entire life and person pigeonholed into a simplistic category such as “racist” because you believe a certain way, or you have a certain sex or body type, is hurtful. But it is understandable, which I will explain in a second. Being categorized as a “victim” is also hurtful to those with ability and higher consciousness, so it works both ways.

Such narrow-minded accusations suit those who hate – but remember that the primary quality of those in darkness is ignorance and a lack of discernment. Let’s take the viewpoint of the light here! One might say that those who hate aren’t evil at all, but are merely operating on a lack of information that results from lower consciousness.  They have little discernment and can’t see past simplistic white and black categories. Nuance, which comes from discernment and higher consciousness, is lacking. Therefore, responding with hate to hate will only exacerbate the situation for you and for them. Behind the newspeak and the thoughtcrime and the doublespeak and the accusations and the intolerance is stark, raving, fear. People who do this are genuinely troubled.

The job of the lightworker is to spread light, but it gets hard sometimes. However, if you can make the distinction between the false good-evil paradigm and the light-dark paradigm, life gets a little easier.

The good guys always say that crime doesn’t pay, but for some men there’s no other way. The bad guys always say, both sides are the same. The good guys and the bad guys.

These are the lyrics to an old song I heard once, can’t remember the band or the song title. But the lyrics express the idea that “good” and “bad” are subjective. A pro-Trump supporter will call themselves “good” and call Democrats the bad guys. A Democrat will refer to Trump supporters as the bad guys and themselves as the good guys.  Such a debate is pointless, for it automatically generates contention and intolerance. A society that frames public policy and conversation in this way will turn in on itself. This is precisely what is happening right now in the US.

“Good” and “evil” are not measurable. These concepts are entirely subjective. However, light and dark are  measurable, or at least observable.  “Good” and “evil” actions will be interpreted, or measured, by an entirely different set of parameters depending on the side you favor. Agreement is not possible. But light and dark can be assigned parameters that all can agree on.

Light = tolerance, love, and compassion.

Dark = intolerance, hatred, and hard-heartedness.

This framework eliminates the categorizing of actions into “boxes.” All that is needed is to determine whether the activity is based in love and compassion or in hatred and intolerance. Immediately, the “pro-Trump” and “anti-Trump” components are eliminated. Doesn’t matter which “side” you are on. Democrats and Republicans can both be the good guys.

“That is crazy,” you say. “Low consciousness cannot recognize high consciousness. These [pro-Trump][anti-Trump] people are too dense to even recognize love and compassion. They will automatically categorize their actions as good and the other side bad.”

Maybe. But a rational, objective observer can look at a situation  and see who is generating love and who is generating hate. Tolerance and intolerance are still subjective variables, but they eliminate actions based on one agenda or another. All that is necessary is to feel the love or the hate behind the action. Moreover, it also eliminates “fact” based arguments, where people on both sides marshal arguments and opinions to support their “side.” It gets beyond the intellect and the ego and goes to the heart and to the God template that is within all of us.

It’s why spirituality and even religion are important. (I am not religious, but many people are. Religion is at least an attempt to find God, whereas atheism is a turning away from God. The dark army uses religion to foment intolerance and hatred.)

The dark army on this planet has several products: hatred, intolerance, death, materialism, anti-spirituality and anti-religion. ALL of these parameters can only exist in a consciousness that, with free will, has  turned  away from the light. Darkness is an absence of light, an inability to get beyond the biology and see the God within.

Actions based in love and tolerance are easily recognizable, even by those with low consciousness. A person who responds tolerantly, or ignores another who insults him or her is acting in love. A person who responds to an insult by firing back in an intolerant manner is practicing intolerance, no matter how justified the person is in responding negatively.

“That’s stupid,” you say. “A low consciousness person interprets tolerance and love as weakness. You have to teach people like that a lesson. They only understand force because by definition they are in the dark.”

Yeah. People on both sides think this way about the other side. That’s why there’s so much hatred.  This is a remnant, a time fractal, from the old timeline.

In an old energy this was the way it was. You responded to force with force, or you got run over. Occasionally, a guy like Gautama Siddhartha, Christ, or Mahatma Gandhi would come along and show that the way of higher consciousness was the path out of the darkness. They inspired many men and women (like Mother Teresa) to go that route. And that’s how civilization advances. It’s how low consciousness gets transmuted. Lightworkers, despite all of the reasons not to, respond to intolerance with tolerance, to hatred with love.

Who said it was easy?  The path to the light goes through the darkness.

We are on a new timeline now. The old energy has been transmuted enough so that the light is more powerful. The old patterns from the old timeline, thousands of years old, are losing their force. The old energy is becoming more and more obvious as the light infuses human consciousness. The forces of darkness are desperate now. Their continuous attempts to start World War III, for example, are futile. Their activated sleeper cells, who go around shooting up mosques and synagogues to create fear, chaos, and hatred, will fail in their objective. Fear and hatred are their only weapons. People are waking up; they are getting tired of the politics of confrontation, both nationally and internationally. The pedos who molest children are being exposed. Regardless what you think of Trump , he is finding and breaking up the pedo rings and arresting the child molesters. Right here in Michigan a pedo ring was busted; it’s happening all over the country if you look for it on the internet. Here’s a Blind Item from Ent Lawyer, an unidentified Hollywood observer who is exposing the abuse of children in Tinseltown:


The dark army operatives are exposing themselves, and are being exposed. That’s because the light is penetrating their hiding places. They can be seen by actions based in hatred, confrontation, and intolerance.  They are on both “sides.”

When you are in the light you can step back and go into your personal God template. This leads to a feeling of oneness and a detachment from the hurly-burly of emotional and intellectual confrontation. There’s a feeling of love that permeates your being and you can see that it’s everywhere, in all things. This doesn’t mean you don’t get pissed off, or lose it sometimes. But the more you connect to that feeling, the easier life gets.

Man, it’s HARD fighting the good fight. There’s so much vigilance and stress involved making sure those “other” guys behave themselves and don’t get away with their dirty tricks.

Maybe it’s time to take a step back, go into the core, and live life from a more tolerant attitude. If you can do it, even for a few minutes every day, life is a lot easier and more rewarding.

Here is a photo of Julian Assange after he was dragged from the Ecuadorian embassy in London a few weeks ago:


Excuse me, but why is this man smiling? He is under indictment in the US for publishing the stolen emails of Hillary Clinton and John Podesta, and the UK has an extradition treaty with the US. It’s a convoluted story, but I choose to interpret the Assange saga this way:

Trump’s attorneys filed a motion in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on Dec. 29, 2017, in the case Roy Cockrum vs. Donald J. Trump for President. Trump’s attorneys said that the Trump campaign (and by inference anyone, including Julian Assange at WikiLeaks) had a right under the First Amendment to publish the DNC and John Podesta emails, even if the emails were stolen. (See

When Assange heard about this, he posted his famous tweet on December 31, 2017, showing a hash, and a video to a song called “Paper Planes” by M.I.A.

 Assange uses hashes to unlock and make public any information given to him by whistleblowers around the world, so this hash was recognizable to anyone who knows Assange. The lyrics of the Paper Planes song say, “If you catch me at the border I got visas in my name…and…I've got more records than the KGB…So, uh, no funny business.”  This was a thinly veiled message that if anything happened to Assange, he was going to do a data dump. Why did Assange respond in this way? Because he found out about the offer from Trump – essentially forgiving him for his leaks of stolen info – and responded positively.

This is how people sometimes communicate at high levels – in code. That’s why he’s smiling, IMHO. His 9-year ordeal may finally be coming to a close.

After a lot of other stuff happened, some of which is too conspiratorial even for me, on April 11, 2019, British police forces in London announced that Assange had been “arrested on behalf of the United States authorities.”

(See “U.S. Extradites Julian Assange for ‘Conspiracy with Chelsea Manning in 2010,’” Allum Bokhari, Breitbart, April 11, 2019.

This was another move on the chessboard by Trump against the deep state, because Assange has a treasure trove of data he hasn’t released yet. The counter move by the deep state? On May 13, 2019, the Swedish government announced that it was re-opening the rape case against Assange. (See  “Sweden Reopens Rape Case Against Julian Assange,” Megan Specia, May 13, 2019, the New York Times.

Remember that (from the Times article) “The [Assange] investigation stems from an accusation in August 2010 made by a Swedish woman who said Mr. Assange had sexually assaulted her.”

Now, Britain has a choice: Either extradite Assange to Sweden, where he will face trial for the rape case, or be sent to the US, where he will be in the hands of Trump. Since Assange has already accepted Trump’s offer to come to the US, I have to assume that he is ready to spill some deep state secrets. Assange knows where a lot of bodies are buried, and can answer the question of, “Where did Wikileaks get the stolen/hacked DNC emails from?”

 The answer to this question will silence a lot of conspiracy theories, among them, that Russia stole the emails, that DNC staffer Seth Rich stole the emails, that KimDotCom stole them, etc.

It is interesting that the Special Counsel, Robert Mueller, could have interviewed Assange but didn’t. If Assange got the stolen emails from Russia, Mueller could have taken his testimony and the 2-year investigation would have been over pretty quick. Trump’s involvement (or non-involvement) would have been confirmed. If he was involved, impeachment proceedings could have quickly moved forward, with evidence for it. So why Didn’t Mueller ever talk to Assange?

That’s what I can’t figure out.

Will the UK extradite J.A. to Sweden or to the US?  The answer to that will be interesting.

Postscript: The Two "Coups"

What is interesting is that the (alleged) Democratic attempt to overthrow Donald Trump is eerily similar to the one the Republicans used to try to overthrow FDR (allegedly).  The first one was organized in 1933 by wealthy Republican businessmen and was called the “Business Plot.” Roosevelt's election was upsetting for many conservative businessmen at that time. From Wikipedia:

Some writers have said concerns over the gold standard were also involved [FDR took the US off the gold standard in 1933]; Jules Archer, in The Plot to Seize the White House, wrote that with the end of the gold standard, ‘conservative financiers were horrified. They viewed a currency not solidly backed by gold as inflationary, undermining both private and business fortunes and leading to national bankruptcy. Roosevelt was damned as a socialist or Communist out to destroy private enterprise by sapping the gold backing of wealth in order to subsidize the poor.’

During the McCormack–Dickstein Committee hearings General Smedley Butler testified that Gerald C. MacGuire attempted to recruit him to lead a coup, promising him an army of 500,000 men for a march on Washington, DC, and financial backing. Butler testified that the pretext for the coup would be that the president's health was failing. Despite Butler's support for Roosevelt in the election and his reputation as a strong critic of capitalism, Butler said the plotters felt his good reputation and popularity were vital in attracting support amongst the general public and saw him as easier to manipulate than others. Given a successful coup, Butler said that the plan was for him to have held near-absolute power in the newly created position of ‘Secretary of General Affairs’, while Roosevelt would have assumed a figurehead role.”

The (alleged) spying campaign on Donald Trump (Republicans call it no less than a coup – an attempt to overthrow an elected president) – has been organized by Democrats, former CIA director John Brennan and former DNI James Clapper, with the cooperation of officials who served in the Obama administration.

In 1933 it was conservatives concerned about the rise of socialism and Communism. In 2018, it was liberals concerned about the rise of fascism. In 1933 the pretext for the coup was FDR’s failing health. In 2018 the pretext was about Trump’s supposed mental instability. In 1933 Gen. Smedley Butler refused to cooperate with the Republican coup plotters. In 2016 Admiral Mike Rogers, Obama’s head of the NSA, refused to go along with coup plotters in his party who were tapping Trump’s campaign. Rogers, on his own time, went to the Trump Tower in New York to inform the incoming president that he was being spied on. (Trump immediately moved his campaign staff to Florida).

History repeats itself in odd ways!  

A lot more will be coming out about the “coup” against Trump in the run-up to the 2020 elections, which will be, in my opinion, the most important election in the history of the United States.

Having lived through the Watergate scandal and the Nixon administration (we all called Richard Nixon “Tricky Dicky” at the time) and now Trump, Mueller, and Russiagate, I have noticed similarities in both of these historic events. The connection is the intelligence community and the CIA.

The Watergate scandal originated with a ridiculously incompetent burglary by five members of President Nixon’s re-election staff at the Democratic National Committee HQ at the Watergate hotel complex. The ensuing scandal, which lasted from 1972 to 1974 and resulted in Congressional hearings and Nixon’s impeachment, is so complex that I have never understood why or how it happened. It has been surrounded with confusing info and disinfo. One thing is clear: Watergate had all the hallmarks of an intelligence operation. So does Russiagate.


In the first place, the Watergate break-in was led by a former CIA agent, James McCord (See “The mysterious life of James McCord, Watergate burglar whose death went unnoticed for 2 years,” by Steve Marble, Los Angeles Times. April 12, 2019, at

McCord and four Cuban operatives clumsily broke into the DNC on the night of June 17, 1972. Here’s what the article says:

Of all the Watergate characters, McCord was the most puzzling, a retired CIA operative who cloaked himself in several layers of mystery and somehow ended up on a security detail for Nixon’s reelection team. Carrying briefcases and walkie-talkies, McCord and four Cuban nationals who made up a clandestine burglary team known as the ‘plumbers’ broke in to the Democratic headquarters in the Watergate building. While McCord and the others scoured the offices, Liddy and Hunt — equally compromised ex-spies — ran the operation from another hotel room. But the break-in was as sloppy as it was bold, and the five plumbers were arrested when a security guard noticed the door ajar to the Democratic headquarters, a piece of tape covering the lock. Liddy and Hunt fled but were arrested the next day. McCord later said that it was never altogether clear to him what they were looking for and that he was working on vague directions to take photos of anything that appeared to be related to money. [emphasis mine]

A piece of tape covering the lock? It’s almost as if the “plumbers” wanted to be discovered! And why do you break into a place without knowing what you are looking for?

The most famous person connected to the Watergate incident (other than Nixon) is Bob Woodward, who at the time was a little known reporter for the Washington Post. Woodward claimed he got his info on the burglary from FBI agent Mark Felt (look him up) who he claimed was “deep throat.” What is little known about Woodward – even though he has written publicly about this – is that Woodward worked in the intelligence community and was an officer in the ONI, the Office of Naval Intelligence. Woodward was assigned to Admiral Thomas Moorer, then chief of naval operations, and disliked Nixon. Moorer favored George Bush (Bush 41), who later became the head of – you guessed it – the CIA.

(See “Who IS Woodward anyway? Untangling the skein of his intelligence connections,” Daily Kos, November 16, 2005. )

Now let’s turn our attention to Russiagate. I don’t mean for this to be a long article, so let’s just say that John Brennan, former head of the CIA, and James Clapper, former Director of National Intelligence, conducted a spying operation on Trump, Supreme Court justices, and millions of Americans. This was made clear in the material on HAMR. No, not heat-assisted magnetic recording a la hard drives, but an intelligence spying operation.

This is according to an article by Mary Fanning And Alan Jones, “Obama’s surveillance Hammer on Trump worse than Watergate,” on Jun 8, 2017 in Communities Digital News,

The article says,

On June 5, whistleblower and  former CIA/NSA contractor Dennis Montgomery filed a federal lawsuit [Dennis Montgomery, et. al, vs. James Comey,] against former President Barack Obama, former CIA Director John Brennan, former FBI director James Comey, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, the NSA, the CIA and other former and current government officials...Although the suit does not identify the surveillance system by name, audio recordings released in 2015 by United States District Court Judge G. Murray Snow in Maricopa County, Arizona identify a secret government surveillance system called “the Hammer,” allegedly used to spy on Trump, 159 judges including Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, and millions of other Americans.

I mean, are we really surprised? John Brennan, former CIA director, has admitted publicly that he lied to Congress and conducted a spying operation on members of the Senate. It’s not like the NSA, Google, Amazon, Twitter, and Facebook  hasn’t been gathering info on us since 2004, during Democratic and Republican administrations. But the entire Russiagate narrative is based on the idea that the evil Russians hacked the DNC on behalf of Trump, to the detriment of Hillary. The sad fact is that Hillary was a bad candidate; she couldn’t even win against a politically inexperienced businessman best known for a goofy TV show.

We also know from the New York Times in their article, “The Shadow Brokers,” that the NSA has software that can hack into computers and networks and leave a digital footprint to anyone or any organization. According to the Times, this software was stolen by a hacker group of the same name. According to the Times in another article, “After Arrest of Julian Assange, the Russian Mysteries Remain,”

Numerous significant questions are left unanswered, including what, if anything, Mr. Assange knew about the identity of Guccifer 2.0, a mysterious hacker who American intelligence and law enforcement officials have identified as a front for Russian military intelligence. operatives.

Guccifer 2? No one has ever identified this guy, or the mysterious Shadow Broker people. More intelligence community operations? Julian Assange – who published the hacked DNC emails – has recently stated that the DNC emails he received did not come from anyone in the Trump circle (even though Donald Trump Jr. exchanged emails with Assange during the campaign). So where did they come from? William Binney, former top NSA tech guru, in an analysis of the time between the stolen email signatures, has shown that the emails were either stolen on site or close by in the area. KimDotCom claims that he received the hacked DNC emails from Seth Rich, a former DNC staffer who was found murdered a short time later, and sent them to Assange.

Believe whoever or whatever you want, but the common thread in Watergate and Russiagate is the CIA and the intelligence community, which is out of control. The secrecy surrounding these agencies has been undermining our democracy for decades.

It’s time to look into the secretive world of spooks and uncover the cockroaches hiding under their protective rocks. In my opinion, if this is done, we will find out who is behind the dark and evil drugs, arms, and human trafficking networks.

Something you might not have known about Russia: Communism has been banned in Russia since 1991.

Source: “Yeltsin Bans Communist Party,” Jeff Berliner, UPI, 1991.

Whatever you think about Vladmir Putin, he is a Christian and friendly to Israel. So is Trump. Obviously Putin is a Russian nationalist (and so is Trump a nationalist), and that might be distasteful to you. But a lot of people still associate Russia with the USSR, and communism. The USSR hasn’t been around since 1989. Here is what the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) has to say about John Brennan, former CIA director, Russia, and communism:

“Should former CIA Director Brennan, indeed, intend to seek political asylum in Russia in order to escape a treason trial facing him in the United States...MoFA national security analysts stunningly state they’d strongly encourage President Putin not to grant it—not because of the incendiary bombshell explosion it would create in US-Russia relations—but due to Brennan’s past membership and support of the American Communist Party, and no one being able to explain how he was ever allowed into the CIA in the first place—which is a vital national security issue in Russia where the communists have been outlawed since 1991—and where no tentacles of this deadly and vile political disease that in the past 100 years has killed 100 million people will ever be allowed to infect and kill again.” [emphasis mine]

Quote Source:

When I read this I was astounded. I grew up in the Cold War where Russia was synonymous with the Soviet Union. To most people who are older than 40, Russia=Communism=tyranny.

It was shocking to me to read the visceral contempt and dislike of the Russians for Communism. For many Americans, Russia and Communism are synonymous. But that hasn't been true since 1991, over 28 years ago.

 We know that Trump is a Christian and Putin is a Christian. The US is still (nominally) a Christian country. Russia is Eastern Orthodox Christian. Both men have stated publicly, more than once, their intent to have good relations between the two countries. If the US has an enemy, it certainly isn’t Russia. It’s China, with its annual $500 billion trade deficit. China is still ruled by the Communist Party, and so is anathema to the Russian and the US governments. It’s probably one reason why Trump has been so dismissive of the Trump-Russia collusion narrative and why he has been so tough on the Chinese.

(To understand why Trump is using tariff hikes against the Chinese Communist Party, listen to this:

Here is a tweet from John Brennan after the meeting last year between Putin and Trump in Helsinki:


This viewpoint was reflected all over American media, including the New York Times, Washington Post, NPR, and almost all of the other major media.

This is what the Russians said about it: “How could a man who admitted voting for the communist party candidate, first of all get a job in the CIA, then become director of the CIA and then once the USSR falls, have a problem with Russia? Who is he to call anybody else treasonous?”

In America we have been bombarded, for the past three years, with the idea that Russia interfered in US elections and is the enemy of the US. But this narrative has been promoted by people like John Brennan. It makes you stop and think what the CIA is up to! Remember that Trump’s very first stop after becoming president was at CIA HQ in Langley. It is instructive to read what he said in that speech.

Trump and Russia are intimately connected, but not in the way we think.

Here’s an example from Newsweek:



“A senior Russian diplomat responded positively to President Donald Trump's remarks regarding his desire to seek total denuclearization, saying Moscow was ready to begin working toward that end. Speaking to Fox News host Sean Hannity via telephone Thursday night, Trump welcomed Russian President Vladimir Putin's offer to assist in the U.S.-North Korea peace process. The president said, “We want to get rid of the nuclear weapons,” not just in North Korea, but “we all have to get—Russia has to get rid of them and China has to get rid of them” in comments subsequently supported by Moscow, which had accused Washington of loosening restrictions on its nuclear posture.

“Given the increasing role of nuclear weapons in U.S. doctrine-related documents and their gradual transition to a class of weapons that can be used on the battlefield, such statements can be only welcomed,” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said Friday, according to state-run Tass Russian News Agency. Ryabkov then laid out a potential road map toward total disarmament at a time when the two countries appeared more distant than any time in recent history.”

Things are not always as they seem. The media only emphasizes the negative and never the positive, but there are a lot of positive things happening in the world.

How can you love others if you can’t love yourself? The answer is, it’s hard. Stand in front of a mirror and look yourself in the eyes, then say, “I love you.”

How did that come out?

If you are an old soul you have experienced a lot of shit on this planet. You’ve done things to others and have had things done to you. All of that is still in your Akash, even though you can’t see it.

Loving yourself is the first step to a feeling of oneness. We’ve all experienced that feeling, even if only for a few seconds. It’s the feeling of connection to everyone and everything and it fills your body and your entire consciousness with love and well-being. I don’t know how you can consciously get that feeling to come at will. It never happens to me unless I feel in charity with myself. That feeling of love comes from inside you. It’s part of you.

The purpose of human life on earth is to get past the biology and find it. The human race is slowly raising its collective consciousness, but there’s nothing preventing us from going faster. When enough of us find that feeling of oneness human nature will change from one of contention, competition, and struggle to one with greater compassion, tolerance, and harmony. When this happens the human race will begin to discover its true potential.

Current events are a madhouse partly because we have to walk through the darkness we have created and confront it; we are in the process of resolving thousands of years of karma. But the light side of this is that, as individuals, we are cleaning out our Akashs. We are preparing ourselves to hold more light. Light automatically vanquishes darkness, so our task will get easier and easier.

What is preventing individual human beings from advancing spiritually? NOTHING. The light-dark balance has shifted in favor of the light. Yes, we see madness, hatred, and intolerance everywhere. But this is a passing phase. Don’t believe anyone who says that the world is going down the tubes; it’s just the opposite.

Star seeds know this, and there are plenty of them on this planet. If you are reading this you are probably a star seed.

A star seed is simply one who has woken up in this lifetime, and understands they have a soul mission to raise the vibration of this planet to graduate status. Star seeds have lived on other planets and have gone through this process before. Some of us are waking up to this. There’s a feeling of spiritual certainty about the process; that the light will inevitably win. For me, this is now a 100% certainty, and I write this confidently. Lightworkers are showing the way.

Human beings have 23 chromosomes; all other hominids on the planet have 24. That fusion of the second chromosome was not a genetic accident (I talk about that in my book The Old Soul). Our biology has been enhanced by a galactic race who has already achieved graduate status. Our biology contains a subtle God template that allows us to access the higher self, and the feeling of oneness. Therefore every human being is potentially a star seed, no matter how many lifetimes we’ve had on the planet.

A skeptic will say, “Where is your proof?” The answer is simple: Look inside to find the God template. It’s there, within every one of us. A skeptic will never find it because he or she can’t see (by choice) past the materialism of their biology. Interestingly, within that very biology is the God template. But the God template is subtle, beyond the 3D materiality of our physical world.

This is the test of earth: Can you see past the limitation of the five human senses? If not, c’est la vie. A star seed, however, recognizes there is something more, even if he or she doesn’t know how to access it. Concurrent with the madness and the intolerance is a huge rise in self-help books, courses, and seminars. More and more people are trying to find the light. This process MUST inevitably lead to a change in human nature, and peace on earth. It will also inevitably lead to new inventions that can get us past the primitive, polluting fossil fuel matrix we are currently living in.

When will that happen? It’s up to us.

The snowball is rolling downhill now, collecting dark debris and making a very big mess. But lightworkers have given that snowball a huge shove and gravity (light) is taking over.

I don’t have a can’t miss formula for you, or a ten-step program that will cause you to find the God within you. That’s because there isn’t one! Every human being has his or her own path, and that’s the way it should be. The good news is that you don’t need anyone to tell you how to do this. And the good news is that you can do it yourself (you see, there is no bad news!)

When you are in the feeling of oneness, the duality disappears. There’s just well-being and a feeling of connection to everything. The madness on the news fades away; life problems are dissolved. That’s the power of the light.

The Duality

The stronger the duality, the more fighting, competition, and intolerance. But the duality isn’t some outside force imposed on humanity. The strength of the duality is decided, collectively, by individuals. You can go with the hate and the contention, or you can get above it. Getting above it doesn’t mean hiding your head in the sand and ignoring current events. It means confronting life’s problems with the knowledge that 1) humanity, collectively, is on the way up; and 2) inside each one of us is the God template.

Fear and hatred destroy this certainty. “When the darkness comes it always brings a destruction of society; it’s been happening over and over for thousands of years.” Yeah, that’s true. But what is also true is that we are on a different timeline now. We have made it past the marker. The old fractals of energy can still be re-created, but why would anyone want to do that?

“Because human nature never changes. Just look around, you fool.”

I am looking around. I’m doing a lot of looking around. I see a planet that is in the middle of a psychic cleanse. A lot of crap is coming out of every orifice. The shit is hitting the fan. People are getting triggered because the light is opening up truths that have been hidden for millennia. I’ve talked about that in previous blog posts under the “Current Events” heading. It’s a freak show out there. People are working out their karma on a planetary scale, and that’s a good thing.

What can an individual do to stop the nonsense?


That’s because nothing should be done. The old energy has to work its way through the system; human consciousness must be cleansed. It’s happening; it’s good. What individuals can do is to find the God within.

“That’s ridiculous,” you say. “We have to stop the evil ones.”

That’s not going to happen because there is good and evil in all of us. No one can or should stop the process of the light invading the dark spaces in the human psyche. It’s what we need, it’s what we have all been working for. We can see it on the news every day.

“Maybe it’s what you have been working for, but not me. People are getting killed every day! Guns and shootings and ......”

That’s right. That’s what happens when a planet of free choice makes the decision to go upward into the higher vibrations: The lower vibrations immediately get exposed and they have to be confronted and handled.

Individuals have two choices (the duality again): Get triggered into current events, or stay centered and find the God within. I can’t stop it, you can’t stop it. It’s part of growing up as a species and finding planetary balance at a much higher level.

Everything we are seeing, in the eyes of God, is positive. Those who die immediately go back Home.

There has never been an incarnated soul on earth who has failed to go back to Oneness. It’s never happened and never will happen, because the nature of consciousness is pure love. What we do here on earth stays here. ALL endings are happy endings. Yes, even Adolf Hitler had a happy ending. Even the mass murderer Josef Stalin went back to Source.

Percentage of people on earth who have the God template: 100%

Percentage of people on earth who will be trapped or suffer punishment for their lives on earth: 0%

That’s what happens on a planet of free choice.

“Then why bother to be good if the evil ones are treated the same way as the good guys?”

Because an evil person lives a miserable life. They are trapped in lower vibrations and don’t know how to get out. An evil person also develops heavy karma that must be resolved in future lives.

This is why lightworkers are so important. Sending your light out into the world (through meditation or interaction with others) dissolves karma. The situation would be hopeless if this wasn’t the case.

Evil isn’t a force. It’s a decision to turn away from the light.

Yes, there are dark networks on the planet that literally try to bring demonic beings into the physical plane. But these demonic beings are creations of the human psyche. They are local to planet earth. They don’t exist outside the psyche of humanity. They are not powerful in themselves, because the darkness is simply an ABSENCE of light. The darkness is not a force in itself; its impetus comes from the light.

“Light can’t create darkness,” you say.

That’s right. But on a planet of free choice, individuals can shut out the light, just as you can pull a curtain over your window. The decision to pull the curtain down is yours. The consequences of that action you are responsible for. BUT – the God template still exists within you. No one is totally evil! All beings have light within them. The power of free choice creates a true test of energy on the planet.

“But why have an energy test that involves so much suffering? Surely this is not God’s intent!”

I don’t know why there is an energy test on this planet. That knowledge is hidden from anyone who incarnates here; otherwise the test would not be fair. Why play a game if the outcome is pre-determined? Clearly there must be some huge, divine purpose for an undertaking that involves 8 billion souls. Lee Carroll, channeling Kryon, just says that the energy test helps the galaxy. That’s very unsatisfying to me; but again, Kryon can’t tell us otherwise it would spoil the game.

If you figure it out, tell me!

Postscript: Current Events

The battle between light and dark is reflected in current events. But the game is very complex. It resembles a chess game where the pieces can change their color (free choice), depending on their position in the game, and how much danger they are in from surrounding pieces. Pieces (human actors) can change their color more than once, depending on what messes they create for themselves, and how much pressure is brought to bear on them from either side. A piece might decide to flip from dark to light, and vice-versa, and then back again. So the game isn’t static, it’s constantly changing. But the primary factor in the game is the infusion of light energy into the dark spaces. This is providing all of the impetus for change. 

Postscript: Current Events: Big Pharma Beginning to Crack

Insys Therapeutics CEO John Kapoor, 4 other execs found guilty in fentanyl bribery case


“BOSTON — The billionaire founder of the pharmaceutical company Insys Therapeutics and four other top executives were found guilty on Thursday of racketeering in a scheme that involved giving bribes and kickbacks to physicians to prescribe large amounts of a fentanyl spray to patients who didn't need the painkiller.”

This is just the beginning.

Postscript: Big Tech Companies Are Essentially Information Gathering Organizations

Don’t take my word for it. Here’s an article from “CIA Jeff” Bezos’s own paper, the Washington Post:

Here’s another take: The Myth of Internet Giants Being Private Companies:

This dude explains the difference between platform, publisher, and private corporation in relation to data collection sites like Google, Facebook, and Twitter.

The old systems of human thought are breaking apart. This is causing some people to become imbalanced, emotionally triggered by current events, afraid of the future, and lashing out at others for no apparent reason. In old souls it is also causing the opposite effect: a feeling of greater serenity and a growing confidence that the craziness of current events and all of its hatred and contention, is a transition to a higher level; a passing (but necessary) phase.

Why would anyone feel calmer and more confident in the current atmosphere, where a person is judged by how he or she voted in the last election, and a growing intolerance for other points of view? Isn’t that delusional? Not really. More and more people are waking up to their spirituality. By that I mean the understanding that a person is much, much greater than their biology. Human consciousness is that part of the soul that can “fit” into a human body. The human body is surrounded by the merkaba, a 24-foot sphere of light. The merkaba is the biology’s connection to the eternal soul (if the person wakes up enough). At this point human beings cannot “see” the merkaba or understand it. There’s just a vague feeling that “I’m a lot bigger than I think I am.” Sometimes a person has a soul mission and wakes up to that. This is accompanied by a feeling of purpose and passion.

The feeling of optimism occurs because the human merkaba is a direct connection to the soul, and to God.

Because a human being is not a piece of meat, everyone has a spiritual component. Only a little bit of your soul can incarnate into a human body, so most of you is on the other side. However, the spiritual system associated with earth provides a set of “guides” that help you along the lifepath.  Because free will exists, these spiritual helpers cannot interfere in a life unless the human being requests it. But when you do, they are there. I have called upon them several times in the past few years when I fell into spiritual black holes. These spiritual helpers are real! When you connect with your spiritual helpers you feel a sense of well being and optimism about the future.

The Release of Karma

What is happening on the planet now is the release of karma.

There are almost 8 billion human beings. Everyone who has ever had a lifetime on earth is here. Imagine the karmic relationships between billions of people who have had lifetimes over thousands of years. Even newbies have some karma. A lifetime or two is enough to meet lots of people and interact with them. The various soul groups and soul families are all here now in the new energy. All of the past relationships that generated karma are being worked out. The internet has enabled people who live across the globe to work out karma. Is it any wonder so much chaos has resulted?

The “new energy” is a result of the decision of the human family to clean things up. This is a very recent event, because we only passed the marker on December 21, 2012. It made a planetary house cleaning possible. December 2012 was the approximate end of a precession cycle. Once the human race voided prophecy that we would destroy ourselves it was possible to begin a spiritual evolution out of the darkness.

This planet’s primary esoteric cycle is the precession of the equinoxes, a 25,770-year cycle where the earth makes a wobble on its axis. It is five of the Mayan long counts from their calendar. There have been two precession cycles since the time of Lemuria. After 2012 we are entering a third cycle.

The spiritual/belief systems of humanity are being “tossed.” This is the decision of the entire human family. All of the souls who have ever incarnated on the earth saw that when thc 2012 marker was passed without an extinction event, the path to higher consciousness was possible in the physical. The human race is working on a planet-wide resolution of karma that has been generated over the millennia.

The sky is not falling, the darkness is not advancing, the human race is not on the edge of extinction. What we are seeing is how karma resolves between 8 billion human beings! The old is being replaced by the new. The collective “box” of beliefs of humanity in an older energy is being gradually replaced by new ideas. This is causing chaos in the physical universe. The chaos is not the result of a turn toward the darkness, but a turning away from it (see Postscript below). 

The dark is organizing for its survival; therefore, it has had to come out into the open against its own wishes. The hidden arms, drugs, and human trafficking networks do best when no one sees them. We are seeing more dark activity because it is being exposed to the light of day, in accordance with the decision of humanity on the other side to initiate the karmic cleanup.

Many will never wake up; but the majority doesn’t have to. Only enough people to start the process. If you meditate enough you will get an inkling of this great decision. Whether your physical self agrees with this decision or not, the karmic cleanup has begun! It is glorious.

“You are crazy,” you say. “People are killing innocents with guns in public places. Corruption is at an all-time high. If you call that glorious you are insane.”

Think about it. Combine free will with the new cleanup energy and what do you get? Exactly what you see happening in current events. Don’t try to figure it out because it’s impossible. There are so many variables, the interactions are so complex, no physical modeling system could even begin to approach the level of sophistication necessary to analyze it. All you can do is reach beyond your biology to the God within, which will give you a feeling of calmness and serenity and optimism about the process.

The craziness in current affairs will force you to look inside precisely because events are so chaotic. The mind can’t handle it, which is why so many are becoming unbalanced. At the same time, even more are waking up! The unbalanced ones will become triggered into their karma, yelling and screaming and shouting and lashing out. The ones who wake up will largely be quieter, although there are some who have soul missions to confront the darkness and become playas (see the March 2019 blog post). The entire earth play is being orchestrated from the other side by the various soul groups and soul families. We, the incarnated human souls, are here to do the work. It is an exciting time to be alive!

Just remember that the play is going according to plan, with the variable of free will being paramount.

Earth is a planet of free will. This means that no one will interfere: not even our own Higher Selves, unless we ask for help. The benevolent space brothers are not going to land on the White House lawn and save humanity; we have to do this ourselves. Why? I don’t know the answer to that. What I do know is that the earth is in communication with every other planet in the galaxy through a “cosmic web” of energy that you don’t discover until you reach a certain level of consciousness. We haven’t gotten there yet, but it’s coming.

Those who observe us know that each planet that goes through what the earth is going through MUST make it on their own. To help at this stage would be counter-productive. If the earth makes it to a higher dimension, it must be our collective choice.

This choice cannot be accomplished by “educating” people, it cannot be accomplished by marching and demonstrating, it cannot be accomplished by killing or silencing people, it cannot be accomplished by hatred and intolerance. The way out of the darkness is through the darkness, exercising as much tolerance and compassion as possible. Nobody said it would be easy. People are dying in wars and from drugs, children and women are being abused, injustice and intolerance is becoming more and more obvious. It’s all part of the process. It sucks; but humanity made its bed over the last several thousand years. It’s now our job to clean up the mess we made.

It’s happening!  

Postscript: Current Events

We have to talk about current events, even though it’s not “spiritual.” Actually, it is. The battle between dark and light is happening in human consciousness. That battle is reflected in the physical universe and we can see it in current events. As above so below.

The light is revealing the dark underbelly of human societies. The darkest of the dark is the trafficking in human beings, and especially children. There is an ancient “religion” on this planet that believes in sacrificing children and drinking their blood. (Apparently, ingesting the blood of young children has positive health effects.) This ancient practice of child sacrifice and blood drinking is surrounded by dark rituals. It has been done all over the world for thousands of years. It is continuing and it is ongoing.

In our so-called “modern” societies we think we are beyond this. That is a myth. It is continuing, it has continued for a long, long time. There are organizations that literally breed children and sell them to global pedophile networks. These children do not have birth certificates and so are not traceable. Children go missing every year and are never found. Millions of children are involved. I saw a vid last year of a Mexican woman walking out of a store carrying a child. A SUV drove up, a man got out and grabbed the child. The mother screamed and almost lost her child until a couple people came to her aid on the street. This stuff is real, but it’s hidden here in the US.

In the coming years the child trafficking networks will be exposed (some have already been shut down), but the process will be slow because people don’t want to believe it occurs.

We cannot have peace on earth until this appalling and evil practice is rooted out, and those responsible are identified and removed from society.

Underlying the hard-line politics in the US is this one million pound gorilla. It’s almost never spoken about because it’s totally unreal to 99% of the population, and because it’s so dark. I hate to talk about this, but it’s necessary.

A society that allows the abuse of children is insane. Right now humanity is living in a corporate matrix of lies and corruption that allows the abuse of children to continue. In the past, the subject has been avoided in the news and in debate. Until the population wakes up to this appalling practice, we cannot make spiritual progress ahead.

Those who talk of ascension are way, way ahead of the curve. It’s a great idea, but ascension is never going to happen until the corporate drugs, arms, and human trafficking networks are identified and disbanded. That’s because ascension applies to the entire human race, not just an enlightened few. We’re in this together, all for one and one for all. As I said above, the collective decision of the entire human soul family is for a massive cleanup of karma. No one makes it unless we all make it. Only then can there be peace on earth. We are all brothers and sisters, no matter what the crazed U.S. media tells you.

This is why I have had to throw my support to President Trump. He’s doing a lot to uncover these networks, and is being viciously attacked for it (but the attacks are masked – the real reason isn’t being disclosed). Don’t be fooled by the false Republican-Democrat, liberal-conservative hatred. The people who hate the most are the people behind these dark corporate networks. They are on both sides.

Is Trump a savior? Of course not. He’s contentious and egotistical, but I will support anyone who is in a position to do something about it, regardless of his or her personality flaws. The people who are involved in these dark practices are in so deep they have no choice but to fight to the death. To me, the elimination of human trafficking is the single most important issue facing human societies. Destroying human beings through drugs, war, and sexual abuse is the way of the dark, and represents how the dark values human beings.

Trump is emphasizing the southern border here in the US because that is where almost all of the human trafficking into the US is coming from (and the guns and the drugs). The mass migration to the southern border in the US is being underwritten by the drug cartels.These outfits use their human packages as diversions at the border to tie up U.S. Border Patrol agents so they can run deadly opiates and other drugs into the country.

Some of those who want open borders are in the light; they see that an ideal society would be a completely free one, where anyone and everyone is welcomed and helped. These people see Trump as a reactionary; an old-energy doofus who doesn’t get it. But there are others who want open borders because it facilitates the trafficking networks.

Is it preposterous to assume that a few U.S. politicians are participating in the flow of money via drugs, arms, and human trafficking at the southern border? I hope we are beyond the naivete that all pols are working for the good of the country. There’s a war on, folks. A war between light and dark. The dark side does not have a party, a country, a culture, or a religion. It is composed of those who have chosen to turn their backs on the Light.

We aren’t quite at the stage yet where open borders are possible; only after the identification, cleanup, and elimination of the trafficking networks. That is why Trump is necessary, and why he is (hopefully) a temporary phenomenon. Trump would tell you the same thing, I’m sure of that. This is a guy who feels he has been forced into the position of president. What person in their right mind would want to be attacked day and night in such a high profile job? There have already been four attempts on his life that I know of, and members of his family have received death threats. I didn’t vote for him, but I support the cleanup he’s trying to oversee.

Most lightworkers (rightly) want nothing to do with these dark subjects. The job of the lightworker is to spread light, but part of being a lightworker is not being delusional (“We are almost to Ascension now!”). We have to know what we are facing so we can send light to the millions of people being affected by these networks. Many of the people involved in these networks have themselves been abused, and are looking for a way out. (This has nothing to do with fanciful theories about reptilian aliens or other evil ETs. This is a human problem, created by humans, and must be resolved by humans.)

Here is a tiny little snowflake on the huge mountain of human trafficking.

Child Brides In Africa Are Advertised On Facebook And Sold To Old Men

Do you think this only happens in Africa? It’s all over the world.

You’d think the Boy Scouts of America would be pretty clean wouldn’t you? From NBC New York: Thousands of Boy Scout Leaders Face New Child Sex Allegations; Names Expected to Be Released Tuesday

“An attorney claims the BSA has files of child abusers within their ranks, going back to the 1940s. The allegations came to light Monday night and a group of alleged victims were expected to hold a press conference in New York Tuesday to speak out publicly, alleging a pattern of sexual abuse within the scouting organization. The victims’ attorney, Jeff Anderson, called it a system of denial and cover-ups. He claims the BSA has files of child abusers within their ranks, going back to the 1940s. ‘The lives of the survivors and their families have been shattered and destroyed in so many ways,’ Anderson said. He says the new allegations accuse more than 7,000 leaders of abuse, with more than 100 in New York.”


Here’s another: the death of Irish journalist Lyra McKee on April 18th:


Accidental? Maybe.

The child trafficking problem can be summarized best by this article:

I don’t go looking for this stuff: it’s everywhere. Child abuse is a planet-wide epidemic and involves ordinary people and influential people. It is the heart of the dark networks.

But then there’s the Light side:

You get the idea.

You get the idea. It’s simple: The silly Democrat-Republican hatred is a false dichotomy. “Mueller! Russia! Trump! Clinton!” The media inspired frenzy of hate is designed to draw attention away from the dark networks.

This subject is going to rear its ugly head more and more as the light gets stronger and the dark fights for its survival. Over the months and years people involved are going to be identified, and it’s not going to be pretty. But it’s necessary. It’s a positive, not a negative development.

The first step in handling anything is gaining the ability to face it.  Humanity is finally beginning to confront its dark side. When you stand in the light you can safely walk through the darkness.

Postscript Two: The Beginning of the End for Big Pharma

“First drug firm CEO to be charged in the opioid epidemic is paraded in handcuffs: Retired exec 'boasted he was the "knight in shining armor" for pharmacies and sold them huge hauls of oxycodone and fentanyl, without asking questions.'”


Postscript Three: Pepe the Frog

I’m including this link without comment. You may have heard of Pepe and become confused. This link explains everything.

I’m a curious bloke. All my life I have asked “Why?” when faced with something I couldn’t understand. This has led me down many paths of research and inquiry, which has increased my knowledge base. But the asking of Why? has been a blessing and a curse.

As we move through the Shift to higher consciousness, we also move through our karma, both present life and past life. Humanity as a whole is moving collectively through the darkness we have all created during hundreds or even thousands of lifetimes on earth. This evolution means that on our way upward we encounter negative stuff.

Recently I have been doing some powerful meditations and affirmations, trying to place myself in a very high state of consciousness, and in the light. However, this has inevitably led to encounters with the barriers of negativity from my past actions, thoughts, and emotions. We have all experienced this: the paradox of advancement into the light means we must work through the darkness we have created along the way.

I have been experiencing both physical and emotional barriers as my meditations get more powerful and build on themselves, but I have not been able to fully accept these barriers. “I’m supposed to be in the light! Why am I experiencing this negative stuff?”

It’s one thing to preach, but it’s another thing to practice what you preach! The practicing part, that gets hard.

Curiosity is a wonderful thing, but sometimes it can get in the way. When something happens that I don’t understand, I always ask Why? I realized this morning that curiosity about something fascinating or exciting or informationally new is a good thing. But asking Why? when something bad happens sticks you in the bad thing. Asking Why? puts you inside it, and then you begin to feel crummy. The problem is that asking why is an intellectual exercise, and it doesn’t help you to resolve emotional or physical difficulty.

For example, I have been having balance issues. I’m walking around OK, but I feel that I’m going to fall over. In the past this has been resolved by seeing my chiropractor, but that hasn’t worked this time. So I ask “Why am I feeling so crummy?” This is the wrong question! It isn’t surprising that I’m having balance issues, because the entire planet is unbalanced right now, especially in the US, where the hatred is just getting stronger and stronger, and people are taking sides. Apparently, if you aren’t screaming invective from the Left or the Right, you’re not even in the game.

In my meditation this morning I decided that instead of asking Why? when something negative happens, I decided to replace the why with the love of God. Lee Carroll and Kryon are really big on this. We are all an aspect of God, so why not use that to our advantage? Replace why, with love. Since love is the basis for all emotions, both positive and negative, replacing a crummy feeling with love should dissolve it.

This sounds pretty obvious when you write it down linearly on paper, but it was a profound realization for me. That’s because I always ask Why? Moreover, asking why is a God-driven impulse, because the Creator is the most curious entity in the universe. The Creator sends trillions of souls from the Great Central Source into the physical, to gain experience and discover Itself. We are all little pieces and part of the One.

So, wanting to understand is a Godly impulse. But asking why about negative stuff just flips you more into it. The solution is non-linear: replace the negative emotion with pure love, as much as you can generate. When something unexpected happens to me my first impulse always was, “Why?” Now it’s going to be acceptance, then love.

It doesn’t matter to me anymore why something happens. It happened, so what, accept it. This is an old philosophy (stoicism), but in the old energy it was usually followed by apathy, because the dark was stronger. “Nothing I can do about it.” “You can’t fight City Hall.” So you just grind it out, hoping things will get better.

You Are Your Best Counselor

The good news is that you don’t need anything outside yourself to advance yourself spiritually. You don’t need the latest procedure to enhance your DNA, or remove your karma, or whatever spiritual marketers are hyping. Folks, I don’t want to step on any toes, but there are a lot of spiritual people out there trying to make money. I’d bet almost all of them are genuine, and genuinely believe that their program is the greatest thing since sliced bread (that’s an old phrase my grandpa used to say). But we are all aspects of God. Therefore we all have God inside. The path to enlightenment isn’t through your spiritual guru or the latest and hottest self-help book or program. It’s through your personal connection to God. And that you have complete control of. Your personal path leads through your personal connection to the One, and only you can do that.

This is why I have abandoned all spiritual teachers except Lee Carroll and Kryon. Lee offers his audio lectures for free on his website, you can hear everything he does. Sure, he sells books and tickets to his talks when he channels Kryon. But Lee makes it clear he isn’t in it for the money, even though he’s probably pretty well off (hundreds of people come to his presentations all over the world). I have no problem with that. He doesn’t hype his talks, even though he is hands-down the most genuine channel on the planet (IMHO). I’ve heard other channelers but they don’t even come close. Kryon is the real deal: that energy is coming directly from the other side of the veil. If you are looking for inspiration, go to and click on “free audio.” There are channels all the way back to 2002, and it’s not new-age bullshit. If you haven’t heard Kryon before, you are in for a pleasant surprise.

Information Chaos Is Good

I realize now that my understanding of Why is a logical progression from emptying my box of beliefs, as I talked about in previous posts. My belief box was so cluttered with “now I have tos” and “now I’m supposed tos” and “scientist A says this” and “my trusted information source says that” and “here are the facts I am marshaling on this, and this, and that to support my arguments” that I got too emotionally riled by stuff that happens in my life. I was getting too “triggered” by events that were just the opposite of what I wanted, which is peace on earth.

Here in the US, almost everyone gets triggered because the lunatic media spews hatred of the “other side” 24 hours a day. I’ve learned to simply ignore the news programs, because they just marshal facts (or lies) to support a political agenda.

Objective journalism is dead in the USA, but that’s a good thing because before the Shift, the fix was in. Reporting was more “objective” but it was all about keeping the darkness and the status quo firmly in place. I used to read the New York Times, the NYT Book Review, the Economist, the New Republic (when it was liberal), Rolling Stone, NPR, and the Guardian, and convince myself I was “informed.” Hah! I was informed all right, but informed about memes that supported the old energy and the old paradigm. If you think mainstream media are giving you the full picture, think again.

The current information chaos is a great thing because now the darkness is being exposed. People are talking about things that really matter to them, even though the information isn’t “objective.” There’s a lot of hate, but it’s genuine hate! not covered-up bullshit. The fix is no longer in – well, the old order is trying to keep the lid on, but it’s blowing off folks. By election time in 2020 we’re going to know a lot more about the true state of affairs, and who is truly working for the light, and who is working for the dark. As the old energy paradigm releases its hold, we are going to see that things (and people) are not always what they appear to be.  

So don’t panic about the current scene. Believe it or not, it’s much more honest. The old energy paradigm is dissolving before our eyes. People are waking up. The world as we know it, which has been surrounded by a shell of darkness, is breaking apart like new life coming out of the egg.


If you are like me you can see a disconnect between what is reported in the news, and what is going on in the spiritual realms. Some old souls are feeling a massive increase in awareness, which has led to almost a feeling of separation from the world. We know we are IN the world,  we operate in the world, but some are beginning to see past the world as it is and into a higher realm. For me, this has led to some frustration.

It can also lead to an emotional roller-coaster as the Shift in human consciousness ramps up. Have you found yourself flying along and then, wham!? This phenomenon is happening to a lot of old souls. However, old souls are less than 1% of the population now. If this is happening to you, you might feel weird, strange, or even “picked on.” Relax! It’s perfectly normal for old souls. We have so much in our Akash that needs to be cleared, from hundreds or thousands of lifetimes. It happens gradually (thank God!) Fortunately there is a rule: You never get more release of old energy than you can handle. Sometimes the release of old energy seems almost unbearable; certainly, when it happens, it is uncomfortable. I have noticed myself having trouble sleeping. Usually around 3 or 4 in the morning I will get another “cleanse.” I often have very vivid  dreams in which the old energy gets released. Sometimes these dreams are very positive as well; I dream that I have new abilities I don’t have in real life.

If this is happening to you, you are not alone!

This is what old souls signed up for: the Shift. We’re cleaning up our Akash’s and in the process, releasing more of our  light into the world. For me this is happening in a funny way.  I find myself becoming quieter and quieter. I don’t talk a lot these days; I just go about my business.

Most people who aren’t old souls (if you are reading this you are an old soul) simply go to work and live their lives as if nothing has happened since the year 2000. Their concerns are work, kids, try to find some free time to have fun. That’s great; it’s necessary. But there is an entirely new world of awareness that is opening for people who are sensitive to it.

I have to keep my mouth shut (mostly) when people talk about politics or life. I am finding that with increased awareness comes increased responsibility. It’s not my job to educate people into anything. It has to be enough for me to do the research that results from an increased awareness, and be satisfied with that. I am finding my outlet in listening to inspiring music, and in writing books and this blog. I am beginning to understand the phrase, “love is quiet.”

I think this is how God, or Spirit, feels. Souls come forth from the Creative Source, and God lets them experience and learn. Spirit doesn’t try to “educate” them, or force-feed them.  God lets human beings make decisions and live with the consequences. God knows that all endings are happy endings. No matter how miserable the life, the end result is that the soul goes back Home to perfect unity and love.  It’s a benevolent spiritual system. God’s formula is, “What happens on earth stays on earth. Have fun!”

Last month I wrote about my “box” of beliefs, and how I have tried to empty out this box. It really is easier to live without all of those beliefs and opinions banging around in there. It is causing me to think a little more clearly. It’s refreshing to understand that I don’t have to have an opinion about anything. My mind is quieter, and so I feel more serenity. That’s important for me because I was born with a volatile Irish temper, which still sometimes gets the better of me.

Linear vs Multidimensional

A linear mindset goes, do this, then do this. If I believe this, then I must believe that, because it logically follows. I then need facts to support my beliefs and opinions. This fills up a person’s box of beliefs, which becomes cluttered. People object to your opinions, which then have to be defended or you look stupid. This is a stressful way to live life.

A more multi-dimensional mindset might go like this: Opinions and beliefs are unimportant. Feeling inspired and creative is important. This leads to doing more things that are inspiring, and increases the intuitive ability. It enables synchronicity and more coherence. It results in less planning and a less stress. It quiets the mind.

If you have kids and are financially squeezed, life can get frantic. This leads to survival mode, and we all know what that is: an almost frantic feeling that impels action toward the goal of making it in the world. Your box fills up pretty fast because the mortgage or the rent has to be paid, the kids have to be fed and clothed, and you have to figure out how you’re going to do that. A career has the same characteristics: How am I going to get ahead?

Survival mode is enabled by the corporate state we live in.

The Corporation

Our corporate society fuels anxiety. Corporations rule humanity. Our food, our technology, the organizations who make the devices we depend on in life, are corporate. Most people in the workforce are employed by a corporation. Unfortunately, the corporation was created to limit the responsibility of human beings for their actions. A polluter can hide behind the corporate shield, for example. Financial collapses and booms are engineered by corporations; the small investor is squeezed out. A corporation is responsible only to its shareholders, and the motive for the corporation is almost always monetary profit. The corporate world is so pervasive we never think about it. “I need to get a job so I can pay the rent/mortgage.”  No one asks, “What does this corporation do? Does it treat its workers properly? Is it environmentally responsible? Does it benefit humanity and the planet?”

Even government agencies are corporate. There is really no such thing as a “private sector” or a “public sector,” it’s one big corporate sector. For example, take a look at the United States Senate, which is listed as a private corporation at Bloomberg.

The meme structure of corporate/business culture is almost completely profit-money driven. Business culture is all about “get ahead” and “beat the other guy.” Is it any wonder so many people are stressed?

When the American colonists declared independence from England in 1776, they also freed themselves from control by English corporations that extracted their wealth and dominated trade. The young government of the United States had a healthy fear of the corporation, and until 1886, the states could routinely revoke a corporation’s charter if lawmakers felt it was not operating for the public good. The industrial revolution changed the pastoral nature of U.S. society and also empowered the corporation, which united with other corporations to create vast private fortunes.  The courts began to apply legal doctrines that made protection of corporations and corporate property the center of constitutional law. State charters, which had been used to limit corporate power, were undermined by Federal laws and Federal court decisions. Citizen and state sovereignty was undermined. The key decision came in 1886, in the Supreme Court case Santa Clara County v. Southern Pacific Railroad, which was used as a precedent to say that a corporation was a “natural person.” Since then, federal courts have struck down hundreds of local, state, and federal laws enacted to protect people from corporations. As a result, corporations were legally able to increase their control over resources, jobs, commerce, and politicians via the tremendous corporate pocketbook. A United States Congressional committee concluded in 1941 that “the principal instrument of the concentration of economic power and wealth has been the corporate charter with unlimited power….”[1]

This planet is run by corporate networks who buy off entire governments. Individuals have tried to protect themselves by incorporating their small businesses, and even themselves! This is backwards. Corporations are not natural persons, but have been used to shield their human controllers who pollute, bribe, and accumulate vast fortunes to private owners. The corporation has been humanized, but has de-humanized human beings. The planet-wide corporate structure is never challenged by citizens; we just accept it to our detriment.

What does the future look like?

Human beings have built planet-wide corporate networks that have far more power than national governments. Apple, Google, Twitter, and Facebook, and other social media are essentially intelligence-gathering organizations. We’ve all heard that your phone, your Alexa, your Nest listens to you and tracks your movements, your emails, your online shopping (everything is online!). Facebook is actually DARPA’s Project Lifelog, which was set up to track a person’s life from the moment of birth until death. These communications corporations are so pervasive and influential that governments are demanding that they be regulated. Facebook and Google execs have been hauled before Congress and the European parliament. Corporate networks traffic arms, drugs, and human beings.

A rational person, if he or she looked at current events, would conclude that humanity is going quickly down the tubes. But that is not how I see it. The light is shining brighter and brighter, exposing the dark underbelly of human societies. This is the first step to dismantling the private corporate networks that control our lives.

In 2019 and 2020 we are going to hear about the human trafficking networks that involve modeling and casting agencies, children’s organizations, and some respected international agencies. It all has to come out before there can be peace on earth. It’s going to be messy folks, but don’t despair. Dark activities have been a part of human societies for millennia. Now, we have advanced to the point where the darkness, and the people behind them, will be exposed. This uncovering is happening because the consciousness of humanity is rising. Light is penetrating the darkness, and it’s planet wide. For the first time in human history humanity has the opportunity to clean itself up completely! The exposure of darkness is a startlingly positive development.

One of the great things about spring is that the weather warms; the snow and the ice melts and you can breathe fresh air again. But then there’s spring cleaning! The carpets have to be cleaned, the garage has to be cleaned out, cars have to be vacuumed, the junk in the basement and the closets has to be sold or thrown away. That’s where we’re at now. Humanity is cleaning out the junk from thousands of years of buildup. This process is in its infancy dear ones; we have a long way to go. But it’s necessary; absolutely vital, for a fresh start.

Peace on earth can never occur within the current corrupt planetary structures. Corporate networks must be cleaned out. Drugs, arms, and human traffickers must be exposed and their influence eliminated in our societies. During the next several years (if things go right) we’re going to learn a lot. People and organizations we thought were good guys will turn out to be not so good, and vice-versa. The rate of progress will be determined by 8 billion individuals on earth. Will we be able to confront the darkness, or will we ignore it?  Humanity must accept the inevitable house-cleaning or the old system will perpetuate. Therefore it is up to you and me to not panic, not despair, and understand that the exposure of dark activities is a positive development.

It’s so easy to hate on Trump or Clinton, or whoever your favorite bogeyman is; it’s so easy to go into agreement with friends or family who say the planet is going down the tubes. Well, it isn’t! Lightworkers have to shine their light. This is the time old souls were born for, for a very good reason. We have been here for hundreds or even thousands of lifetimes. We have the light to shine, so let’s shine it!  Many of us are star seeds who have come from more advanced planets to help humanity. Now is the time to do our jobs! Stay positive, we’re going to make it, and spectacularly. 


Postscript – Current Events: Player vs Playa

On the stage today there are a lot of players. I use playa to distinguish someone with great influence, as opposed to a regular player. The chief playa is, of course, Donald Trump. The number of Democrats vying for president in 2020 is now up to 15, I think, as of this writing. It takes 15 normal people to make one Donald Trump. Mueller’s investigation, after dominating the news for two years, is now over. That was all about Trump as well. Say what you want about Trump, he is a planet-wide figure. Without Trump several media outlets would have gone broke probably. The guy dominates coverage and events in the US. Trump has an agenda, but the Democratic agenda seems to be, simply, to bash the guy. That’s how you know he is THE playa. The Green New Deal, for example, wasn’t a serious proposal (which is why it disappeared so quickly from the news cycle); neither is spending money even more recklessly than we are doing now.

The Right hates the Clintons, the Left hates Trump and his coterie. But are these really the most powerful playas in this drama? They are certainly the most visible; but visibility doesn’t always equal true power or influence. What if I told you that billions of dollars that were earmarked for the California bullet train actually went to construct underground tunnels and bunkers in order to facilitate the transfer on the southern border of illegal arms, drugs, and trafficking in human beings? Would you think I was a nutter? The news highlights people crossing the border on the surface. But there is a lot of other traffic underground.

Here’s a pic of the Cali bullet train:

As you can see, it looks like an erector set toy built by a child who lost interest. Kinda like Trump’s Wall. But this thing cost billions in taxpayer money. Where did that money go? Who has the power to divert billions in Federal funds from a public transit project?  “The California high-speed train is a poster child for how badly awry these projects can go, with gross mismanagement and billions of dollars in waste that could have been used productively elsewhere.”[2] Well, my point is that maybe it wasn’t mismanagement; maybe the money was used elsewhere. We are always told that money is wasted, but the people wasting it are never identified.

The Federal “black budget” is operated in a similar fashion. Over the decades, trillions of dollars have been diverted from Pentagon and classified programs into hidden programs, using a fake accounting system that charges $5,000 for a toilet and $300 for a wrench.[3]

Who is doing this? Certainly not the evil Donald Trump or the evil Hillary Clinton. The Pentagon has no idea where their money is going, but someone(s) are diverting it. Congress has no oversight over hidden programs. No, ladies and germs, such massive diversions of money can only be done by the truly powerful people who influence events behind the scenes. These people are not known, and so havc been called the “Cabal” or more popularly, the “Deep State.” They aren’t players or playas, because their power is seemingly exercised invisibly, behind the scenes. Visibility is not required for influence.

I categorize such powerful people as eminence grises, or grey eminences, after François Leclerc du Tremblay, the right-hand man of Cardinal Richelieu of France. From Wikipedia: “Leclerc was a Capuchin friar who ... never achieved the rank of cardinal, [but] those around him addressed him as such in deference to the considerable influence this ‘grey’ friar held over ‘His Eminence the Cardinal’.[4] Other powerful historical figures were John Dee, court astrologer to Elizabeth I, and more modernly, Dick Cheney, former Vice President, who was often considered the eminence grise in the George W. Bush administration. However, these historical figures, and politicians like Cheney, were known. Whoever is exercising the power to move billions, even trillions, of dollars in our society are yet to be identified. These people, whoever they are, are operating in secrecy. That should tell you whether they are dark or light.

The point is that informationally, despite the worldwide web, we are still in the dark. I believe that in 2019 and 2020 we are going to find out what some of the playas who are in the news have been doing. But who are the true movers and shakers, the eminence grise’s, behind the scenes? When we finally understand who these people are we will have penetrated the darkness all the way to its core. We will then discover who is behind the terrorist acts, the global pedophile networks, the gun and drugs networks, and the government corruption. After that it will be possible to have peace on earth.

So, we have a lot of work in front of us, a lot of darkness to confront. But that’s what happens when you follow the path to the Light.

This month’s post is all about being your own counselor. In an age where almost everything you see or read is suspect, how are you supposed to know what truth is? The answer is that you can’t find truth outside yourself. You can find facts to bolster an opinion, but are these facts truth? If you are a Trump supporter you can find lots of facts to support your position. If you are a Trump hater you can do the same. All you’ve done is find structural elements to support your box of beliefs. That’s what people do these days: they find facts to support a belief or an opinion they feel comfortable with. Frankly, almost all of this is counterproductive because it leads to a hardening of attitudes. Then you get the current intolerant political atmosphere.

In my new book The Old Soul (coming in March),I describe an uplifted earth. Uplift is a term coined by the great SF writer David Brin. In Brin’s universe, space-faring races with high consciousness “seed” races who are just starting out. This seeding involves an enhancement, or uplift, of their DNA, which advances their biology and intelligence. In the book I take this a step further. The enhancement of DNA also contains an esoteric overlay; a template of God, or Spirit, that is laid on the DNA of the new race. The challenge for the Uplifted race is to find higher consciousness. The only way to do this is to get past materialist belief systems that only involve the body. Skepticism, a “prove it” mentality, over-intellectualizing, etc. are all dead ends because they look for truth “out there.”

The Uplift of humanity came from the stars; from a race with higher consciousness. Our 24 chromosome pairs became 23. This is explained as a genetic “accident,” but an evolutionary accident doesn’t create a successful new species whose population is now closing in on 8 billion. All hominidae on this planet have 24 chromosome pairs, not 23. So something cool happened to the human race a long time ago, and it wasn’t an accident. I prefer to think of it as divine intervention, and that that human DNA has a  divine component. The Uplift is a kind of test: Can human beings find the God within? It’s a hard test because esoterics are not provable. At least not now. If you are interested in metaphysics you are often countered by people who say “prove it,” and you can’t. You are called a kook, a space cadet, or your writings are pronounced “pseudoscience.” (If you want a good laugh go to Wikipedia and look up “Epigenetics,” then go to the “Pseudoscience” section.) Look what happened to cell biologist Rupert Sheldrake, who has a PhD. His TED talk was banned because he had the audacity to suggest that science is dogmatic and that psychic phenomena like telepathy are not impossible.[1]

The test is hard. You know there’s something bigger than you but there’s no way to definitively show others. All you can do is write, blog, and make movies that suggest it.

How do you find higher consciousness? Well, that is the wrong question because it looks for a formula or a process or a system. None of that is going to get you to the promised land. The promised land is inside your uplifted DNA and it is activated by your intent.

Enhanced or uplifted DNA contains a multidimensional component that is a gateway to higher consciousness. This gateway is esoteric, not physical. By definition it is not common sense, it is in no way obvious, and it is not subject to scientific measurement (at this point). It will be rejected by science, medicine, political opinion, and mainstream media. It can’t be found by marshaling facts to support this opinion or that, no matter how enlightened that opinion is. On the other hand, materialists can’t prove to you that you’re wrong. It works both ways!

For me personally, it has been very helpful to inspect my box of beliefs. When I did that I wound up throwing most of them away. Opening up that box made me realize that I don’t have to have an opinion. On anything. In fact, it has been most helpful not to have too many beliefs. This frees me up to more easily change when circumstances change. I can more easily let go of anything I’m holding on to that makes me feel uncomfortable. As a result, I feel a lot quieter inside. The chatter of the mind has lessened considerably because I’m no longer trying to defend or support my beliefs.

“What’s your opinion on the Wall, Ken?”

“I don’t have one.”

“That’s stupid. [Argument for or against goes here: ‘A wall is needed to keep out criminals, drug dealers and human traffickers.’ ‘A wall is the last refuge of a dying society that is ready to collapse in on itself.’ Etc. , Etc., Etc.] 

“All of these are great arguments,” I say. “There are lots of valid facts and opinions on this issue. My stance is that people will do what they want to do and are in a position to do. Whatever happens I’ll live with it.”

“If everyone was like you we’d have [fact or opinion on either side goes here].”

My opinion is that people should do what makes them happy. Now that I don’t have a box of beliefs rattling around in my consciousness, I feel a lot better about it.

“If everyone was like you nothing would get done. Without an opinion you are just an empty shell; a do-nothing waste of space.”

So be it. I’ll forego an opinion on the Wall, or Trump, or Ocasio-Cortez, or Jussie Smollett, or whatever the latest drama is out there promoted by a news media that seems to love chaos.  I can tell when something has hit my box when I get angry at something I see or read. When that happens I understand that something has triggered my box and I try to look at what it was. Flow a little love at it. Then I calm down and get on with my (pointless, some would say) life.

I’ve come to realize that everything important comes from inside. The higher emotions and feelings are the rudders of my life now. Facts are useful when I’m writing something because it’s important to fact-check and not spread disinformation. It’s also important to keep informed on things. For instance, in Whole Foods magazine there’s a good article about how GMO foods are going to be labeled “bioenhanced.” That’s a good fact to know, but facts aren’t opinions. I have pretty much thrown out all of my opinions about stuff that isn’t factual, like whether Trump is a racist or a demigod, or whether Jussie Smollett staging a hate crime on himself makes him a bad person, or whether the Green New Deal is a bunch of crap.

Almost all of the “news” today is just opinion. (I have a subscription to the Washington Post. Almost every article in the Post email is an opinion piece.) It’s too hard to maintain my box and keep everything settled in there, so I decided to empty it out as much as I could.

There isn’t a formula for higher consciousness, or happiness. Hey, take all the courses and seminars you want if it floats your boat. Keep yourself informed; I do! But you aren’t going to find the answers you’re looking for unless you look inside. That’s what the masters and enlightened ones have been saying for thousands of years. They say this because they know about the Uplift of humanity, and that the gateway to higher consciousness lies within your own enhanced DNA.

No one can tell you how to do this. It’s the most personal, intimate thing you have: the relationship of you with you.

If you’re just a regular Joe like me, you have to practice this. I try to find a feeling of love and happiness and let that soak into the cells of my body and my consciousness. At the beginning of each day I try to place that feeling all along the time track. It’s easier for me because I’m mostly retired now. If you have kids and go to work every day, life can get frantic. But it helps if you can empty your box a little. Then when life  rattles you, there’s less junk banging around in there. It’s less painful. You get triggered less. You feel a little quieter inside.

I’m pretty sure tolerance and compassion come when you can empty out your box of beliefs.

“I’m offended by ____” “How can anyone do something like that?” “Are you crazy to think that way?”  “Have you heard the latest outrage about [fill in the blank]?” It just goes on and on, the stuff you object to, and then the way those objections make you feel.

“That’s stupid,” you say.  “We have to stop criminals and human traffickers and other evil elements like [fill in the blank]. If you were in charge all that bad stuff would continue.”

Maybe. The good news: I’m not in charge. I don’t have an agenda. People in charge have agendas! They like “getting things done.” In order to get stuff done you need leaders and followers. You need people to believe in causes. The current political atmosphere demands that you choose sides, and then argue with the other side by finding facts to support your position.  What would happen if people threw out all those beliefs and let other people get on with their lives? Maybe there would be less tension in society. Maybe people would find it safer to look inward and find the God within. Just  sayin’.

My advice for those who want to stop others: try it and see where it gets you.

I find that listening to inspired people helps. My two favorites are Sadhguru and Kryon, but you may have your own personal favorites. I download or listen to a lecture every night before I go to bed, and afterward put good energies on my timeline for the following day. Then I go to sleep. When I wake up the next day I feel a little boost. I find that I have to practice this every day, week after week, month after month, because of my Irish temper and my Scottish and German stubbornness. But it gets better as time goes by.

Try it and see if it works for you. Get your box out and start inspecting those beliefs. Try not to have opinions about things. See what happens.

God bless!

Postscript ­­– The Trickster

Joseph Campbell (and others) describe a trickster god, one whose purpose is to sow confusion. The Trickster is actually a teacher, and he is alive and well in society today.

One day the Trickster walked along the main road with a large, pointed hat that was white on one side and black on the other. Some of the villagers said, “Eshu is a good guy because he wears a white hat.” The other villagers disputed this. “Eshu is a demon because he wears a black hat.” The village started to debate this and tempers flared. The next day Eshu came walking toward the village from the opposite direction. Now those who had seen him as a good guy saw a black hat. Those who saw him as a demon saw the white hat.

Everyone was confused. Eshu said, “There is good and bad in all of us. Do not fight and argue, but seek wisdom.”

Our current society is just as confused as the villagers. We see disinformation everywhere, but this is a good thing, because it shows that the truth isn’t “out there.” The truth is inside. You are your own wisest counselor. Learn to trust the divine voice within you.

Postscript Two – The Kim-Trump Summit: The Duality on Full Display

President Trump arrives in Hanoi, North Vietnam, with crowds lining the streets, to talk peace with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un. Meanwhile, Michael Cohen testifies before Congress and accuses the president of being a liar, a cheat, and a conman. While Trump is trying to negotiate the de-nuclearization of North Korea, the U.S. press (and Congress) is very excited about getting rid of Trump, and impeachment is in the air. It’s dark and light: the duality on full display in brilliant contrast.

I’d imagine that 90% of Americans don’t know that the Korean War has never ended. It has been ongoing for 70 years. U.S. troops still occupy a demilitarized zone between North and South Korea. North Korea has been a threat for nuclear war for 40 years. Although no agreement was signed at the Vietnam summit, further dialogue and communication at the highest levels was undertaken. The president – whatever you think of him – has mitigated the NK nuclear threat, and that’s a good thing.

1) Interesting fact: The North Korean embassy in Madrid, Spain, was broken into last Friday, just before the summit between Kim and Trump. Several unidentified men entered the North Korean embassy, bound and gagged staff, and stole documents and computers. The North Korean ambassador in Spain is Kim Hyok Chol, the person who prepared the summit between Trump and Kim Jong Un. He is a top Korean nuclear negotiator. Make of that what you will. (Source: Afterward, Jim Acosta, the CNN reporter who has had many run-ins with Trump, gloated that the president was walking away empty-handed.

It’s duality time! (said to the tune of, “It’s Groundhog Day!”)

2) Do you remember the EMS broadcasts in Hawaii and Japan last year?

These texts appeared on cellphones, saying that a nuclear missile was on its way from NK to Hawaii. A similar text was sent in Japan. Was a nuclear missile really launched toward Hawaii? Was it launched by North Korea? What was the purpose of these messages? Why would anyone want to scare the crap out of millions of people if it wasn’t true? Was it sent by the dark or the light?

The Trickster is alive and well, but the light is winning. That’s why so much stuff is happening, and why there is so much chaos.

I remember vividly the War in Vietnam. The idea that an American president could travel to Hanoi for peace talks with North Korea is, frankly, astonishing. Younger readers will shrug their shoulders and say, “Who cares?” Well, we’ve come a long way to peace on earth. We’ve just begun, actually, because this planet has been dark for millennia. But it’s lighting up.

We are making tremendous progress. The chaos we see is what happens when light penetrates the darkness. The light is spotlighting the darkness in all of us. That’s why we’re taking one step backward for every two steps forward. President Trump is in the big spotlight. His bad points and his good points are all showing up. The same is happening to all of us.

The point is, there is dark and light in all of us. If you are looking for the good guys or bad guys in politics, you’ll never find them (yet). That is why it is so pointless to argue about it. I quoted Solzhenitsyn several posts ago: “If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?” Compassion and tolerance is the key. It’s important to recognize when something inspires you and when it makes you angry or puts you into fear. That’s what the inner voice is all about: transcending the duality.

The key is not to have opinions, but recognize facts.  Be on the lookout for those who stimulate the emotion of hate and fear within you, no matter what side they are on. Recognize when you feel inspired by something, no matter what “side” the information is coming from. That is the God within you lighting up. The goal is peace, tolerance, and compassion.
