Brit goes to Ukraine. This is crazy.
According to History.net, the civil war between the Republican Party (abolitionist states) and the Democrat Party (slave owning states) killed between 640,000 and 700,000 Americans. https://www.historynet.com/civil-war-casualties
The population of the country at that time, according to the 1860 census, was 31,443,322. That is an enormous figure, and dwarfs casualties during WW 2 as a percentage of the population. According to the World Atlas, this figure was 419, 440 from a population of 140 million.
So the Civil War was a big, big deal.
Interestingly, the events surrounding the election of 1864 – when Democratic Party candidate George McLellan faced off against the first Republican president, Abraham Lincoln – are repeating themselves here in 2020.
Opposing Lincoln were antiwar Democrat Party forces embedded in the northern states, who were called Copperheads. The Copperheads wanted President Lincoln defeated so they could make an immediate compromise with the Confederate rebel leaders and end the abolition movement to free black slaves. The Copperheads were also called Peace Democrats, and many of them were simply anti-war, people who were opposed to the modernization of society represented by the Republicans, and who were essentially agrarians.
According to Wikipedia,
During the American Civil War (1861–1865), the Copperheads nominally favored the Union and strongly opposed the war, for which they blamed abolitionists and they demanded immediate peace and resisted draft laws. They wanted President Abraham Lincoln and the Republicans ousted from power, seeing the President as a tyrant destroying American republican values with despotic and arbitrary actions [sound familiar?].
Some Copperheads tried to persuade Union soldiers to desert. They talked of helping Confederate prisoners of war seize their camps and escape. They sometimes met with Confederate agents and took money. The Confederacy encouraged their activities whenever possible.”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copperhead_(politics)
In 1864, hatred of Lincoln was even more intense than the hatred of TRUMP. According to Wikipedia, quoting Mark Wahlgren Summers,
Copperhead newspapers were remarkable for their angry rhetoric. Wisconsin newspaper editor Marcus M. Pomeroy of the La Crosse Democrat referred to Lincoln as "Fungus from the corrupt womb of bigotry and fanaticism" and a "worse tyrant and more inhuman butcher than has existed since the days of Nero [...] The man who votes for Lincoln now is a traitor and murderer [...] And if he is elected to misgovern for another four years, we trust some bold hand will pierce his heart with dagger point for the public good.”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copperhead_(politics)
TRUMP haters have compared him to Hitler, just as writers in 1864 compared Lincoln to Nero, who, interestingly, was accused of playing his fiddle while Rome burned. Sound familiar? If you’ve seen footage of the riots in Portland, Seattle, Chicago, and New York, you can see American cities burning.

I personally don’t care what happens to stores owned by big multinational corporations, but if those were MY stores I’d be pretty pissed.
Mail-in Voting in 1864
But what is really interesting is that during the 1864 election mail-in balloting played a prominent role!
A fascinating Washington Post article (reprinted in Chron, so you don’t have to pay to read it) tells us what happened back then. A mail-in voting scam was perpetrated to shift votes to McLellan. According to the Post,
Traveling to Baltimore in the fall of 1864, Orville Wood had no way of knowing he would soon uncover the most elaborate election conspiracy in America's brief history.
Wood was a merchant from Clinton County in the most northeastern corner of New York. As a supporter of President Abraham Lincoln, he was tasked with visiting troops from his hometown to ‘look after the local ticket.’
New York legislators had only established the state's mail-in voting system in April with the intent of ensuring the suffrage of White troops battling the Confederate Army.
Troops from New York were allowed to authorize individuals back home to cast a vote on their behalf. Along with their mail-in ballots, troops would assign their power of attorney on slips that required four signatures: the voter's, the person authorized as a recipient, a witness to the signed affidavit and a fellow officer. These documents would be sealed in an envelope and shipped back home to be counted in the final vote. This was the process that Orville Wood intended to uphold, he would testify in court later. He quickly found out what a challenge that would be.
Wood arrived at Fort McHenry in Baltimore to visit with the 91st New York Regiment. There, an Army captain suggested that there had been some "checker playing" when it came to the gathering of soldiers' mail-in ballots. These suspicions of fraud were echoed when Wood visited wounded men at the Newton University Hospital. The rumors of wrongdoing led Wood to the office of Moses Ferry in Baltimore.
Ferry had been selected by New York Gov. Horatio Seymour to help oversee the voting process for New York's enlisted men. Seymour had vetoed the initial bill to establish mail-in voting and would go on to run against Ulysses S. Grant in the 1868 presidential election.
Wood masked his suspicions as he entered Ferry's office, portraying himself as a strong supporter of Lincoln's opponent, George McClellan. This was enough to gain Ferry's trust, he testified later.
Ferry told Wood that the votes from New York's 91st Regiment had already been tallied: 400 for McClellan and 11 for Lincoln.
Wood returned to the office later and, following Ferry's instructions, began forging signatures of the 16th New York Cavalry. Meanwhile, a clerk sat across the room signing ballots from the roster of names Wood had brought with him from home. Wood asked to personally deliver these fraudulent ballots, but Ferry said they would have to receive final approval from his colleague in Washington - Edward Donahue Jr.
Donahue soon arrived in Baltimore and met with Wood. It was revealed during this conversation that around 20 co-conspirators were already at work in D.C. to aid in the plot to deliver votes to McClellan. The following day Wood watched as Donahue and his crew formed a sort of assembly line, passing blank papers along to one another to be signed with the names of active enlisted men, wounded and dead soldiers, and officers who never existed.
“[...]Also discovered in Ferry's office was a list of around 400 names belonging to sick and wounded soldiers under treatment at a nearby hospital. In reference to the roster, Ferry joked, ‘Dead or alive, they all had cast a good vote.’
Ferry, Donahue, and their fellow conspirators found humor in their work. One accomplice mocked the outcry he expected from abolitionist newspapers following the corruption of the election. The men bragged about their past successes in fixing local elections back home.
Together, the men had shipped crates of fraudulent votes back to New York. But their scheme was over. Wood reported the operation to authorities. Ferry's office was searched, and on the morning of Oct. 27, 1864 - less than two weeks before the election - he and Donahue stood trial before a military commission.
Ferry offered a full confession that same day, even offering up the names of others involved in the scheme. Donahue proved more of a challenge.
Following the first day of the trial, a reporter for the New York Times wrote, ‘The honest electors of the state of New York have escaped an extensive and fearful fraud, a fraud in keeping with the proclivities of the party in whose behalf it was initiated, but one that, if unexposed might have subverted the honest will of the people and left the state and the nation at the mercy of those who would make peace with rebellion and fellowship with traitors.’
[...] In the months following Lincoln's victory – he won 221 electoral votes to McClellan's 21 – anti-abolitionist newspapers attacked his legitimacy, calling the trial another aspect of a conspiracy conducted by the president to ensure his reelection.”Dustin Waters, "Mail-in ballots were part of a plot to deny Lincoln reelection in 1864,", The Washington Post, reprinted in Chron.com at https://www.chron.com/news/article/Mail-in-ballots-were-part-of-a-plot-to-deny-15507606.php

Wow. The more things change, the more they stay the same! Perhaps this is one of the reasons TRUMP is so against mail-in voting, even though it happened 150 years ago. I think we’re in a lot better shape than we were back then, even with the USPS’s inefficiency, but we’ll see what happens. It’s going to be a wild ride to November 3rd, and even beyond, because there’s likely to be lawsuits challenging the vote counts in many states, especially if the election is close.
Interestingly on February 17, 2020, the U.S. Postal Service filed a patent application for a secure blockchain voting system! The patent application was published on August 13, 2020. It says,
A voting system can use the security of blockchain and the mail to provide a reliable voting system. A registered voter receives a computer readable code in the mail and confirms identity and confirms correct ballot information in an election. The system separates voter identification and votes to ensure vote anonymity, and stores votes on a distributed ledger in a blockchain.”http://appft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PG01&p=1&u=/netahtml/PTO/srchnum.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=20200258338.PGNR.&OS=&RS=
Is the Post Office a Hopeless Mess?
Politico, no friend to TRUMP, posted an excellent article on the Post Office on August 20, 2020, “Five Myths about the Postal Crisis.” Among other things it says,
Congressional Democrats may well force a vote this weekend to give the Postal Service between $10 billion and $25 billion. They tried to do this in early March, as well, claiming that the agency was going to go broke due to a plunge in mail volume caused by COVID-19.
For his part, Trump last week said Democrats “want $25 billion, billion, for the Post Office. Now they need that money in order to have the post office work so it can take all of these millions and millions of ballots.” And Trump said he wouldn’t let the USPS have the money.
Both sides are talking nonsense.
The Postal Service is cash flush. It has $13 billion in its Treasury account, more than it has had in years. The flood of parcels into the Post Office during COVID-19 has lifted the USPS’ third-quarter revenues higher than last year by $550 million. The CARES Act, signed by Trump in late March, also gave the agency an additional $10 billon borrowing line from the Treasury.”https://www.politico.com/news/magazine/2020/08/20/5-myths-about-the-postal-crisis-399584
Perhaps we’re in better shape than we thought with mail-in balloting.
Simone Gao interviews Steve Bannon
Update on the corona virus in China.
Governments around the world are finally coming to grips with the spread of the COVID-19d virus. Today the markets around the world were off sharply as investors and business people understand that the globalist system of just-in-time manufacturing -- much of it centered in China -- is threatening supply chains all over the world, from the production of pharmaceutical products like antibiotics to smartphones.
With Steve Bannon and Simone Gao. Skip the intro if you want, I always do. Start at 3:40
One of the elements within the battle of dark and light on the planet is the resolution of technological advances with the awareness of the spiritual nature of the human being. We live on a planet of free will. That means individuals can freely decide to go to the dark or the light.
Right now the dark army on the planet is represented in the US by Big Tech and Big Pharma. In China the dark army is concentrated within the Chinese Communist Party and the PLA, the People’s Liberation Army.
In China, for example, dissidents – the Uyghur minority, the Falun Gong (Chinese religious group), dissident Christians, and others who won’t toe the party line – are held in concentration camps. Organs are taken from these dissidents and placed in organ banks for wealthy recipients in need of hearts, livers, and other organs. If you don’t believe it, listen to this.
It was Google who helped the CCP censor their internet, and who also helped Xi Jinping design his Sesame Credit social credit/surveillance system.
The dark armies in China and in the US are cooperating.
With a 5G network, smart phones will be obsolete. Every electronic device will have a camera and a listening device. Light poles, traffic lights on the outside, refrigerators, stoves, TVs, toasters, computers, and anything else you use that is electronic on the inside. And of course your phone if you have one. Therefore, all citizens will be monitored 24/7. When the 5G network is fully operational it will be able to send voice, text, data, and multimedia almost instantaneously, anywhere in the world. The Alexa and Nest devices are trial runs for 5G, as are AI like Apples’s Siri. The commercials promoting this are everywhere. “Alexa, give me restaurants near me.” The idea is to make people dependent on AI and attenuate their cognitive abilities. (Research it yourself? What a novel idea!) This is the plan of Big Tech and the global elites, to monitor the plebes/deplorables anywhere and everywhere. The next step after that in the plan, 6G, is to use the 5G network in partnership with brain implants. Then the authorities will be able to monitor even your thoughts. Dissidents will be easy to identify. For the elites in the CCP and Big Tech, this is a dream scenario.
How do you like it so far?
Of course this will never come to fruition on a planet where the consciousness of everyone is rising. But it’s the plan, and it’s being implemented. The question is, will people wake up in time to see it? My guess is yes.
I love technology, and don’t know what I would do without it. Technology is a good thing, and I think AI will eventually be used in a helpful fashion. But technology that promotes and advances materialism at the expense of a human being’s higher potential will eventually result in a stagnant society, ruled from above. This has been known and written about since before WWII. Books like Escape from Freedom by Erich Fromm, Animal Farm by Huxley, and 1984 by George Orwell have shown us the dark army plan. I wrote about this in my new novel, The Old Soul. I also wrote about this in my blog post, “The Global Elites vs the Citizens.”
Wealthy elites, for obvious reasons, love centralized governments. The more totalitarian the better, for then access is restricted to a tiny few (them). (The fake debate between “left” and “right” obscures the real dichotomy: between tyranny/materialism and freedom/recognition of human divinity.) This is what is occurring in China, as a dozen or so powerful families consisting of a few thousand people, through the communist party and its military enforcement arm (the Peoples Liberation Army), control a nation of 1.4 billion. The same thing is being tried here in the US, as Big Tech censors the internet and mass media march to the “party line” of political correctness and hatred in the fake debate between liberals and conservatives.
Fortunately, here in the US, more and more people are waking up. This is occurring partially because of Donald Trump, the most polarizing figure in the history of the world. But why is this guy so polarizing? Because he is the actor playing the role of dismantling the old, dark world of gun running, drug running, and human trafficking. And because of his gigantic ego of course.
When the scope of human and child trafficking is finally exposed, and the organizations that are involved, most people simply won’t believe it. For that reason I don’t think it will be fully exposed to the public. A few people will get arrested, a few prominent politicians and corporate executives will be thrown in jail, and the world will gradually improve. We’re already seeing this.
The exposure is going to accelerate as we approach the 2020 election, which eerily resembles the 1860 election of Republican Abraham Lincoln, who was virulently opposed by slave owning Democrats in the south. We know what happened to Lincoln, as he was assassinated during the end of the Civil War at the Ford Theater by John Wilkes Booth in 1865. Prominent people like Tom Arnold, and others, have already spoken or tweeted about killing Trump.
Some people say we are approaching a modern-day civil war, but that is fantasy. There will be no kinetic warfare, because this battle is being fought within the information realm. The light is exposing the darkness on both “sides” of the duality. And it’s going to continue until the duality is transcended.
I’m actually excited to see what the timeline will bring forth. I am an eternal optimist about the future of humanity. I see ups and downs, but eventual success. How fast that happens is utterly dependent on the activities of old souls. The duality will be transcended not because of people like Trump or Hillary, but because of old souls on the planet who send their light everywhere, through meditations and visualizations. That’s because the collective level of consciousness defines the parameters for action in the physical world. In a lower consciousness, violence and intimidation are accepted. In a higher consciousness, people don’t think of confrontation, but more peaceful ways of resolving conflict. It’s a gradual process.
The real action, as I’ve said many times, is on the mental/spiritual/esoteric plane, for thought and intent controls action. The esoteric grids of the planet absorb and record every thought, and the Law of Attraction works to manifest them. People like Trump and Tom Arnold and Hillary are just actors on the public stage. Their actions are constrained (or enabled) by the collective consciousness of humanity.
That’s what this war of dark and light is all about.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that."
--Dr. Martin Luther King
The Harmony Project is a way for individuals and small groups to directly and positively change the world and themselves with a minimum of effort. Its a simple, uncomplicated and powerful way for individuals to positively change consciousness.
What is the Harmony Project?
The Harmony Project consists of two simple activities:
1) Walk quietly down the street with love in your heart. The more crowded the street, the better! Repeat as many times as you feel like it. Or, sit quietly in a caf or a coffee shop, and feel love. You dont have to DO anything, or make a big speech, or make a spectacle of yourself. Just sit there feeling love and observe what happens. You can do this anywhere people gather. I like to do it at the checkout counter in the supermarket!
You don't sing, or chant, or talk loudly, because that would be distracting to others, and could morph into an ego thing. Just sit or walk quietly and unobtrusively, blending in with the scenery. When you are around people and feel love, you quietly affect everyone around you. That's because love is the most powerful vibration in the universe.
What happens is that the vibration of love goes quietly, but powerfully, outward from you to everyone around you, and subtly affects the biofield of others. When I am truly in tune with love, people will often look up and smile. Sometimes, they'll even stop and want to talk. What you are doing is literally changing the vibration of those you meet, without having to argue with them, or raise their consciousness. You cant know how powerful this can be until you actually do it! And do you know the best part? It makes you feel great! It can be addicting, in a good way.
Don't be discouraged if you don't see a miracle right away. The idea of the Harmony Project isn't to show everyone how awesome you are (even though you ARE awesome!). Its not an ego thing. The idea is first to feel love inside of you, and to share that love quietly with others. What you are doing when you radiate love around others, is vibrationally altering their consciousness. This occurs invisibly, just as radio and micro waves travel invisibly and find their way to your hand held communication device.
2) The second activity is even easier. When you talk or chat with your friends, bring up something positive and exciting, and get people talking about it.
What excites you? It doesn't have to be profound! It could be a good tune you heard, or a podcast, or a movie, or a book you read. Whatever it is, make sure it is positive, not negative. Get people thinking and talking about something inspiring.
Thats it! If you are ready to create some miracles, go to it!
The Harmony Project is based on two simple ideas: (1) the inherent spiritual/divine nature of every human being. (2) Quiet Power.
1) Everyone on earth has a spiritual aspect. In that profound sense, we are all linked on a very fundamental level. In the Harmony Project, we use this idea to raise our own vibration, and others as well.
A human being is a divine, immortal Spirit temporarily associated with a physical body. You either understand that, or you dont. If you do, you are capable of reaching the state of love. Love is the quintessential expression of our inherent spiritual nature.
If you know what love feels like, then you are qualified to participate in the Harmony Project. By love I mean that powerful, awesome feeling of excitement and connection that unites all life everywhere. Its easy to get that feeling back in your heart. All you have to do is remember a time you fell in love. Or got a wonderful present. Or saw someone smile. Or looked into the eyes of your pet. Love is a feeling of warmth that is inherent to all life everywhere. Love keeps the universe working. It is who we are at the core of our being. All else is an illusion.
2) What is Quiet Power?
Quiet Power is the expression of love. Love is serene, calming, quiet, confident, and enormously powerful. Love doesn't jabber, shout, or scream. Love is not ostentatious or ego driven. Love is unconditional. When you love, you give your heart and soul. Love is exciting, but in a peaceful way.
Love is like giving someone a present. You wait silently, with eager anticipation, for the smile that comes when a friend or a loved one opens your gift. That smile is your reward. It is an acknowledgment of your shared divinity, of your shared spirituality. There arent words good enough to express that feeling. Thats why I call love, Quiet Power.
The expression of love finds many forms, in every area of life.
Have you ever noticed that the most influential people are always those who lead by example? It could be a teacher, a coworker, a musician or an artist. Regardless of who it is, the people you admire most walk the walk, and dont just talk the talk. Theyre not in the streets yelling and screaming, but quietly going about their business, demonstrating competence, integrity, and compassion, showing others the true path by their example.
The idea of the Harmony Project is to quietly open yourself up to the world, leading by example.
Don't panic! The Harmony Project isn't hard, its fun. Anyone can do it. Its done quietly, at your own pace, and in your own time. You dont have to sign up for anything, or study anything, or ask permission from anyone. There arent any rules. Everything you need for the Project is already inside of you.
You can do the two steps of the Harmony Project by yourself, or with friends. You can walk silently down the street as a group radiating love, or sit quietly in a coffee shop, caf, or any other appropriate place. Remember that love is quiet and powerful, but not ostentatious. The idea is not "wow look at us, we're awesome," but "we are here to saturate this place with good vibes." A group of people radiating love together is an enormously powerful force, like the warming rays of the sun that reach out and touch others. And the best thing is that when you radiate love, you feel it inside yourself first. So the first person who benefits is you!
How can you tell whether something you bring up in part 2) is positive or negative? The answer is, observe how people react. Are they happy, or sad? Angry or joyful? Apathetic or excited? It's pretty simple.
Experiment with this and soon you will be much better at recognizing emotions, and become much more sensitive to people and how to make them happier. Your relationships will improve, because you will be more observant. You will also feel more powerful, because sensitizing yourself to others also makes you more sensitive to what you like and dislike. So you achieve a state of higher discernment ands knowledge of self, as well as knowledge of others.
You can test to see how you are doing. In the first step, one person acts as an observer. That person determines the emotional level of the area before you begin, and then assesses the emotions of the area afterwards. In the second step, you (or an independent observer) can monitor the emotional tone of the group before and after the introduction of a topic. In all cases, the idea is to raise the emotional / vibrational level of the group. Of course, these observations are subjective, but so is a feeling of love, or a feeling of happiness, or any positive emotion.
Send in your ideas, experiences, and successes. The Harmony Project is as much about raising your vibration as it is about transforming others!
People will respond to you in proportion to how much love you are feeling. Most of us are creatures of habit. The Harmony Project is an opportunity for you to practice love. The better you feel, the more amazing result you are likely to get.
How do you feel love?
Well, you just sit quietly and remember a time when you felt loving towards someone, or someone felt loving toward you. Then you pick up on that feeling and let it saturate your consciousness, and the cells of your body. You know what love feels like, or you wouldnt be interested in the Harmony Project. Did you know that of all the emotions, love is the easiest feeling to let in? Thats because love is the OM, the fundamental vibration of the universe. Love is in every cell of your body. Its who you ARE. Love feels warm and fuzzy and powerful and generous and when you really feel love, you feel invincible and wonderful and you want to share yourself with the whole world!
You can get that feeling back any time, you just have to practice! Its the most rewarding practice you can do for yourself, because it sets you up to have a perfect day. People naturally respond positively to those who feel love. Thats the idea behind the Harmony Project.
The Quiet Revolution
You dont have to be famous to have a positive effect. In the past, trying to change the world through person-to-person contact was time consuming and inefficient, but not anymore. Today, person-to-person contact is the best way to make positive changes, because all of us belong to social networks. When someone gets exited about something, he or she tells everyone in his or her network and it spreads rapidly. A positive idea can literally spread itself all over the planet in almost no time at all. This is how we can create a new paradigm of thought in the consciousness of humanity.
The idea behind the Harmony Project is to raise the background vibration of society, and make it possible for positive solutions to occur. The human population is growing, and more and more people are rejecting the old values of deceit, dishonesty, greed, domination, and war. You wouldn't think so by observing our current politics, but the people behind the hatred and the contention are a very, very, very small number. The rest of us are just going along with a bad program. The idea of the Harmony Project is to start a Quiet Revolution.
How Can This Happen?
Imagine society not as a bunch of powerless individuals, but as a collection of dynamically interacting social networks. Governments and corporations are social networks as well! They exist, like ships, floating upon the ocean of national consciousness. That consciousness is established by we the people, through our social networks. We are the soil upon which our nation's institutions grow. If these institutions are now corrupt to the core, it is because we have allowed our planetary and national soil to become fertile for them. We unconsciously repeat, through our social networks, the same old stale ideas that have allowed the present situation to occur.
The idea is to spread love and inspiring ideas all over the world. We all know how impossible it is to get large groups of people to agree on what is best just look at politics! The Harmony Project bypasses ideology and belief, and focuses on love. Love is so powerful that it immediately knocks out these lower vibrations. If you dont believe this, then you have to actually try Step One. If you do it right, you wont believe the positive results you will get!
Humanity needs a spiritual, not a political, economic, or scientific solution to war, hatred, and injustice. The Harmony Project is itself an evolutionary leap, for although we are in the streets and in the shops, and everywhere people congregate, we are invisible to the gross forces of authority, and outside their purview. Even with the new AI systems of Big Tech, which exist to create a dystopian surveillance state, those who participate in the Harmony Project are harmless even to dictators and other psychopaths. Simply walking down the street or sitting quietly in a caf cannot be censored. We simply participate in a Quiet Revolution that exists beyond the reach of "authority." We are Revolutionaries of Love!
Harmony Project Theme Song
Choose your own song!
I have a bias, and I admit to it. I don’t believe in self-promotion. Hell, I don’t even promote the books I write, other than listing them on my website, Amazon, and a few other digital platforms. A lot of people do believe in promoting themselves. I’m sure 99% of them do it because they just know that their spiritual system is THE answer for everyone.
If you’ve lived long enough and wake up enough, you know that’s just not true. There are 7.5 billion incarnated souls on this planet, and every one of them has a different life path and soul mission. Some of these life paths and soul missions do overlap, so there is a congruence of interest among different people. That’s where spiritual marketers come in.
I get a lot of stuff from spiritual marketers in my inbox. Today, I got this:
“ **** is a Philosopher, Visionary, Author, and Syndicated Radio Show Host who delivers high energy messages that empower audiences to live courageously, tune into their brilliance, and maximize potential. For twenty-three years, **** has Coached and Mentored CEO’s, Entrepreneurs, Executives and Senior Professionals to take the courageous path, expand their limitations, and free their spirit to bring in harmony, happiness and bottom-line results to their businesses and lives. **** specializes in inspiring learners and leaders to live up to their highest potential.”
Let’s take a look at this, because there are a lot of marketing keywords in here. You find keywords using SEO, and surveying your target audience. These words are supposed to trigger an emotional or mental response from the reader. This thing reads to me like a series of marketing keywords strung together for maximum impact.
Is there anything wrong with that? Nope. Maybe this person can actually produce fantastic results. Maybe this person wants to attract as many people to the seminars as possible, because they believe it’s so important. Marketing is a great way to do that.
These spiritual marketing messages are all over the place. Spiritual marketers are competing with each other, using keywords to get people to buy their stuff.
Is there anything wrong with that? Nope. I’d rather see a lot of spiritual marketing messages than the corporate marketing crap that sells their junk to us all day. People on the spiritual path have to make a living. But I wonder where the line is drawn between making money and helping people. I was never able to find that line, so I stopped.
Maybe it’s my problem. Maybe I should start promoting myself and my books and services like this. I tried, but I just couldn’t do it. I started to get a big head, thought I had the answers to everything. All I know is, I have the answers for me and my life. The longer I travel my own spiritual path, the less I know. I’m getting quieter and quieter, not louder and louder. That’s just me.
Sometimes I wish I had those five big-screen TVs in my house, like one spiritual leader said in the introduction to their book. Maybe it would be great to drive a Porsche and have a sailboat, like another said in a lecture one time. All that stuff would be great, and if I worked hard enough I could get it. But, somehow, the motivation to do that escapes me. I’m just lazy I guess!
High consciousness can see and understand low consciousness. But low consciousness can’t see or understand high consciousness. This idea has an analogy in physics, as I point out in this article.
This creates an obvious problem in human relationships!
First let’s try to pin down what “high” consciousness and “low” consciousness is. High consciousness is the ability to recognize that you have a divine component, that a human being is more than the physical body. High consciousness recognizes the value of love, tolerance, and compassion. Low consciousness is materialistic, and cannot see past the body. A materialist believes that a human being IS the body, and has no conception of God or the higher self. A low consciousness person has no spirituality, would laugh and scorn the idea (“prove it!”).
So a nuanced person has difficulty with a person who is self-centered, is fixated on one or two ideas, or who has no idea that helping and caring for others is valuable. A self-centered person is a “look out for number one” sort of bloke. The laws of the universe (the law of attraction and the law of vibration), however, guarantee that what you focus on you get more of. Therefore, self-centered people are often very successful because they are laser-focused on goals that benefit themselves. These are the people who have risen to the top of human organizations, and who are the leaders in the current globalist corporate state that humanity has created. A system has been set up to benefit the very, very few self-centered people and organizations at the expense of the many.
I have been noticing a curious phenomenon, which I wrote about in my book Beyond the Beginning: the law of attraction is bringing together persons of higher consciousness, as well as person of lower consciousness. Eventually two groups will form.
This has been ongoing for a long time, actually, as cliques of people form in any organization, at work, in families, and in even in cities. As the duality intensifies, this trend will become more and more evident.
For example, the great Western writer, Louis L’Amour, describes a typical old West town with citizens leading normal lives on one side, and gunfighters, criminals, and other low-lifes hanging out on the other side:
In more traditional [old West] towns, there were generally two sections. There was the part where the saloons and the red light district were...where most of the rough stuff like gunfights went on. On the other side there were churches and schools and citizens carrying on their lives like normal people would. Sometimes all the law-abiding people knew about the gunfights across the way was the sound of gunfire. They didn’t know who was shooting whom until they heard about it later.”(Source: The Outlaws of Mesquite, Authors Note)
In other words, higher consciousness people hang out on one side, lower consciousness people on the other. As the dark-light balance shifts in favor of the light, we are going to see those who have chosen the dark side come together into geographic areas, and those who have chosen the light do so as well. Sociologists will try to explain this as a socio-economic phenomenon, but I believe it’s a result of an ongoing spiritual battle between dark and light.
People are waking up and choosing sides; this is obvious now. It started with the wildcard Trump, who is the catalyst for a restructuring of society. The current result? An intensification of the duality. A large group of people hate Trump so much, they would prefer an economic collapse to get him out of office. I had someone tell me this last week. Another group of Trump supporters regard “the Democrats” as pure evil, as if “good” people are all Republicans. This simplistic, childish thinking (on both “sides”) is the precursor to an eventual sorting of society into those who want the light, and those who choose the dark. Right now we are all mushed together.
The light is ever-so-gradually getting stronger. People are being forced to choose. The good news: more people will go to the light than to the dark. Those who choose the dark side will be in a gradual, ever-shrinking minority. This minority will get louder and louder in their complaints, not understanding that the solution is to go to the light; to choose cooperation, tolerance, and harmony.
Right now it is not possible to see who the light guys are, and who the dark guys are, because so much disinformation is present. But Trump is forcing people to make choices; he is holding a big stick and stirring up the pot. It’s chaotic, but necessary, in a broken political and economic system that just isn’t working anymore.
Pockets of Darkness
As more and more people go to the light during the coming years, the dark will become more and more strident as their numbers decrease relative to the population as a whole. In any geographical area we’ll see pockets of darkness surrounded by (or adjacent to) areas of prosperity. This is already observable. This will lead to further cries of discrimination and racism, fascism, (fill in the blank to whatever form of “ism” you like) from the dark side. For those who choose the dark side, these complaints are entirely reasonable, for they will see a larger and larger group of people being against them. The dark can’t see (or choose not to see) the light. The dark will feel attacked.
As this separation increases, the dark will largely fight it out amongst themselves in their pockets of darkness, just as in the towns of the old West, and in certain areas of our densely populated cities. The violence will, of course, occasionally spill out into society at large. Eventually, those who go to the light will completely understand the value of cooperation and the tolerance of opposing views. These areas will gradually get more prosperous and vital, whereas the dark pockets will shrink, and sink further into conflict. Eventually we’ll have peace on earth, with a few pockets of die-hards who choose the dark side (because earth is a planet of free choice). But that is down the road a bit. Right now the dark is still embedded within the larger society. Unbalanced persons emerge into society and lash out by shooting innocent people. This will change as the unbalanced persons congregate with others who have chosen the dark side. For them, the higher vibe of the light will become intolerable.
The Star Wars franchise had it right: we are in an all-out battle between dark and light This battle will be won or lost on the spiritual plane, as consciousness manifests into the physical universe. The higher the consciousness, the more positive will be the manifestations, and vice-versa.
An All-Out Assault on Liberty
We’re seeing an all-out assault on liberty from the dark side now. Google helped the CCP (Communist Party of China) develop the algorithms for their “Sesame Credit” social rating system, which seeks to impose rigid standards of behavior on 1.4 billion people. Don’t look now, but the same thing is happening here in the US.
What is the problem with Big Tech using algorithms to identify online behavior? Most websites use algorithms and other keywords in SEO packages for our businesses. What’s wrong with Big Tech identifying anti-social behavior? Well, it’s an end-run around the legal system, allowing the heads of a few big corporations to decide who is good and bad. I’d rather let Santa do that! Consider this:
Nobody likes antisocial, violent, rude, unhealthy, reckless, selfish, or deadbeat behavior. What’s wrong with using new technology to encourage everyone to behave? The most disturbing attribute of a social credit system is not that it’s invasive, but that it’s extralegal. Crimes are punished outside the legal system, which means no presumption of innocence, no legal representation, no judge, no jury, and often no appeal. In other words, it’s an alternative legal system where the accused have fewer rights.
Social credit systems are an end-run around the pesky complications of the legal system. Unlike China’s government policy, the social credit system emerging in the US is enforced by private companies. If the public objects to how these laws are enforced, it can’t elect new rule-makers. An increasing number of societal “privileges” related to transportation, accommodations, communications, and the rates we pay for services (like insurance) are either controlled by technology companies or affected by how we use technology services. And Silicon Valley’s rules for being allowed to use their services are getting stricter.
If current trends hold, it’s possible that in the future a majority of misdemeanors and even some felonies will be punished not by Washington, D.C., but by Silicon Valley. It’s a slippery slope away from democracy and toward corporatocracy. In other words, in the future, law enforcement may be determined less by the Constitution and legal code, and more by end-user license agreements.”(Source: Mike Elgan, “Uh-oh: Silicon Valley is building a Chinese-style social credit system,” https://www.fastcompany.com/90394048/uh-oh-silicon-valley-is-building-a-chinese-style-social-credit-system)
‘Nuff said. The “social credit” trend in Big Tech is just another example of the dark-light battle going world-wide. But now Big Tech’s control systems have been exposed, greatly nullifying their influence. (You can go to the Project Veritas website to read testimony and docs from Big Tech whistleblowers.)
The current trade tensions between the US and China are not just about trade. It’s about freedom vs dictatorship. We still have the remnants of democracy here in the US. But President Xi’s China is a few hundred persons in the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) hierarchy ruling over the entire country.
Big Tech is the US Deep State version of the CCP’s ruling junta. The trade war also involves the values of freedom and democracy vs. Big Tech totalitarianism. We’re facing it here in the US, just as China is facing it. In Hong Kong the people know what’s happening to their society, and they are objecting to the imposition of totalitarianism. In France the Yellow Vests are still protesting against the imposition of a corporatist/elitist agenda against the people. Good on them!
Consciousness and the Field
The origins of this great dark-light battle are in the spiritual realm. As above, so below. Materialists, and those with low consciousness, will NEVER see this. These people will be content to pointlessly argue and shout, trying to make themselves right and “the others” – those who disagree with them – wrong.
Those who meditate and work for peace are performing a great service for humanity, even though it seems hopeless sometimes. The invisibility of the process makes it seem that nothing good is being done. Nothing could be further from the truth! Lightworkers, and those who exercise tolerance in their daily lives, are propelling the consciousness of humanity upward. As a consequence, more light is pouring in and exposing the darkness. Unfortunately, exposing the dark is necessary to achieve peace on earth, even though it results in chaos for a time. You may reach 5D consciousness, you might become ascended, but your work still isn’t done. World peace won’t happen unless we all make it.
This POV isn’t popular, I know. People want to hear that just a few old souls reaching higher consciousness can magically carry billions of souls (who have karma from past lives to work out) into a wonderful new world of peace and harmony. Sorry folks, that aint happening. We’ve got a lot of work to do. We all have to make it, not just the chosen few. The path to the light leads through the darkness, for every one of us. That’s the best way, and it’s the only way. Each one of us must attract and create peace, harmony, and serenity through our meditations and actions in the physical universe. The planetary vibe is raised a little at a time, not all at once.
The physical universe is, essentially, a gigantic and complex perturbation of an underlying universal “field.” This field (for want of a better term) is a latency. It is programmable by consciousness. Hindu thought calls it the Unmanifest. Physicist David Bohm called it the implicate order. James Clerk Maxwell called it the ether. Subatomic particles are excitations of the Field. Ultimately, everything physical is an outgrowth of consciousness programming the Field, and the Field responding. Therefore, anything that occurs in the physical universe is a manifestation of consciousness programming the Field. This is the meaning of the word “co-creation.”
That’s why your meditations, your expectations, and your intentions are so important. All of these program the Field. The mindless (or should I say unmindful) squabbling that is the current hallmark of American politics only places lower vibes into the earth’s grids, and into the Field. It’s up to us, as old souls, to do the job we came to earth to do: raise the vibe of the planet. We can do this because we are wise. We have been through it all in previous incarnations. There’s a knowingness in our Akash, an intuition that tells us what to do and what not to do in life situations. We need to access that intuition and strengthen it.
Peace on earth will come from the higher realms, from higher consciousness. It’s a lot of work, but it’s exciting work. It’s our soul mission to do this work!
The light is exposing the dark underbelly of human society. The Jeffrey Epstein saga, which gets more bizarre by the day, is the trigger point. An event, a person, acts as a trigger or a catalyst that releases hidden activities. We know that Epstein kept meticulous records of his interactions with the people he associated with. A lot of powerful people (so-called “elites”) are worrying right now.
The idea that Epstein committed suicide is improbable. Only one prisoner has been able to commit suicide within the Manhattan Correctional Facility, and that was back in 1998. The Washington Post reports today (August 15)
An autopsy found that financier Jeffrey Epstein suffered multiple breaks in his neck bones, according to two people familiar with the findings, deepening the mystery about the circumstances around his death. Among the bones broken in Epstein’s neck was the hyoid bone, which in men is near the Adam’s apple. Such breaks can occur in those who hang themselves, particularly if they are older, according to forensics experts and studies on the subject. But they are more common in victims of homicide by strangulation, the experts said.”
The New York Post reported this, also on the 15th:
Jeffrey Epstein was confident he could fight the child sex trafficking charges against him and was in “great spirits” just hours before his jailhouse death on Saturday morning — even telling one of his lawyers, “I’ll see you Sunday,” The Post has learned.
The convicted pedophile also told his lawyers that the neck injuries he suffered in an earlier incident at the Metropolitan Correctional Center were inflicted by his hulking, ex-cop cellmate, which led the lawyers to request that he be taken off a suicide watch, according to a source familiar with Epstein’s case.
Epstein’s optimism behind bars — expressed during daily visits with his lawyers that lasted up to 12 hours each — was so great that it struck some of those around him as “delusional,” the source said.
“He thought he was going to win the double-jeopardy motion” that his defense lawyers were planning to file in connection with his 2008 Florida prostitution conviction, the source said.”
Lawyers for Epstein's victims are also dubious:
Jeffrey Epstein is not going quietly into the night. Unlike Jimmy Saville, who abused children for decades while working for the BBC, Epstein is eventually going to blow open the lid on the worldwide pedo networks. It’s going to take some time, but this is a positive development. As I’ve been saying on this blog for quite a while, humanity cannot make progress toward peace on earth until enough people confront the dark side the human race has created over the past several millennia. Epstein and his activities are part of that dark side. Pedophilia and child abuse has existed since before the time of Christ, in Babylon and even in Sumeria thousands of years ago. It has existed in every human society; no one culture or country is exempt. The time to expose it, and those involved, is now.
Why IS the duality Intensifying?
In the midst of the Epstein saga, the hatred between “left” and “right” is intensifying, fanned by politicians and media on both “sides.” #ClintonBodyCount vs #TrumpBodyCount (a recent Twitter trend) is a perfect example of how the duality has polarized, and how phony and superficial the debate has become. Alec Baldwin has even said that “the Russians” killed Epstein! I thought we had finally dismissed that idiocy with the testimony of Robert Mueller before Congress, but I guess people will believe anything.
Why is the duality intensifying?
Because the so-called “elites” are involved: “important” people in politics, business, and entertainment. They are fighting back, mainly against Trump, who was the moving force behind the arrest of Epstein. A lot of people hate Trump because of his divisiveness, but some of the “important” people hate him for fear of exposure. Some people say Trump himself is involved in pedophilia, but I don’t think so. We’ll see.
The driving factor behind the intensifying duality is a metaphysical one: the light is penetrating the darkness and exposing it. This is happening because the human race is experiencing a collective rise in consciousness, driven by the desire of the collective to change conditions for the better. That which has always remained hidden is now coming into the light.
Those who have no understanding of self, or lack spiritual awareness, won’t get this; it will sound like airhead nonsense. But it’s true! These days materialists are totally confused, for there is no “scientific” explanation for the insanity that surrounds us.
As I’ve said before, we cannot reach ascended status unless the darkness within the human psyche, and in human societies, is exposed and dealt with. That’s just common sense. If you are one who refuses to even look at darkness, wanting to stay always in the light, you are going to be faced with the dark sooner or later. Either it will come from within your own Akash or you will see it in current events. The duality will probably intensify even further; it will reach even those who choose to ignore the current situation.
Staying in the light should be the goal of all self-aware persons; but those who resist the dark will attract it, simply because of the law of attraction and the law of vibration. A balanced person will be able to see both dark and light, and not be afraid of either.
I’m not saying that you have to listen to the news, or keep up with current events. But we are living in a co-created reality, and some of us are creating a dark reality. So, unless you are already a Master, you are going to be confronted with the dark side.
What does the dark do? Those who embrace darkness take the natural, divine, God-given duality and enhance the lower consciousness aspect. On a planet of free choice, this is a conscious choice.
In God’s design, the duality is a good thing. Contrast, or opposites, provide an impetus for change and advancement. It’s why people tell you to get out of your comfort zone. However, there is one aspect of the duality that is almost a universal law: low consciousness cannot see high consciousness, but high consciousness can see lower consciousness. This means that the bully, the predator, the anti-social personality, the child molester, are so limited they cannot see the higher vibrations of harmony, peace, and understanding. People like this say that pedophilia – having sex with children and even babies – is a natural human impulse.
Therefore, when confronted by low consciousness, the higher consciousness person has a harder time. You cannot reason with a person like this; they firmly believe they are justified in their twisted, dark activities. In the past, the only argument a low consciousness person understood was force. And so war and conflict prevailed on the planet for thousands of years. “Re-educating” someone in the old energy was hopeless. Dark army actors like Stalin, Mao, Idi Amin, and Pol Pot used “re-education” to justify the murder of millions.
How Does High-Consciousness Deal With Low Consciousness?
The vibration of the planet, although slowly rising, is such that a higher consciousness person may not be able to muster enough tolerance and love to transmute the lower consciousness person, who uses the tactics of fear, intimidation, and intolerance. We all know how it feels. In everyday life it’s called “having a bad day.”
What to do?
A lot of us take seminars and courses, go to inspirational lectures, or take a vacation. But that usually only works for a short time. Then you’re back to the grind.
What works for me is to understand that the darkness is part of the duality. When it comes into your life, recognize that it’s a natural phenomenon on a planet that is throwing off the dark and going to the light. The duality must intensify if the darkness is to be confronted and then transformed. That’s because most people simply ignore events. How did Jimmy Saville, the UK pedophile, get away with abusing kids right on the properties of the BBC, for decades?
Pedophilia is reported in the news almost every day, but people ignore it.
Therefore, the darkness is going to intensify until it is in the faces of everyone; until it is impossible to ignore.
This is true for individuals, groups, and nations. When the light hits it harder and harder, the dark gets exposed. The dark army will be forced to come out from under the rocks and openly organize for its very survival. When the planet was more low-consciousness, the darkness could remain hidden. Now, it cannot. So now it’s more visible. It’s being recognized and reported, so it seems that the planetary vibe is worse, not better.
Nope. It’s way better now, despite the insanity. Chaos is the natural result when light penetrates darkness. The dark guys go nuts.
It isn’t pleasant. Makes me wonder why I volunteered to come to this place!
Unfortunately you don’t get to wave a magic wand and make everything go away. In an advancing civilization that is coming out of the dark, the path to the light MUST lead through the darkness.
The Path Out of Darkness
That path, for each of us, is slightly different. However, there are some common elements that all who go to the light must master: tolerance and compassionate action. I didn’t say unconditional love, because that’s impossible except for the Masters.
Tolerance can often be, simply, biting your tongue. You want to lash out at the low consciousness person, but you know it will escalate emotions and make you (and them) feel worse. So you zip it and walk away. It works because when you get into a fight you almost always regret it afterward. Even if you think the other person is a bozo, by not manifesting anger you keep the social vibe from going to low-consciousness. That’s a win for everyone.
Humans in this society have been taught that backing down is a sign of cowardice, but not engaging is actually a sign of great strength. Anyone can get angry and let off their feelings. Adolescents do that all the time. But grown-ups are bigger than that. Simply by NOT getting angry you are raising the vibe of the entire planet.
In other words, you don’t have to express love to an angry person because for most of us this is impossible. Just not expressing your anger in the moment to another living being is an enormous accomplishment. Then you go home and smash something on your workbench, or go for a walk. Tolerance isn’t love, but it’s a great beginning to a personal state of higher consciousness.
Compassionate action is recognizing when someone is in trouble and helping them.
Tolerance and compassionate action is what is needed now amidst the chaos and the intensifying duality.
The election of Donald Trump was a wildcard in human affairs, as I have mentioned before. Like him or hate him, Trump’s election was a bomb exploding within the old system, breaking it apart. Here’s just one example of a crack in the old paradigm:
NY Fire Commissioners Call for New 9/11 Investigation, Citing ‘Overwhelming Evidence of Explosives’
History was made this month in regard to 9/11 as New York area fire commissioners called for a new investigation into the tragic events that unfolded that day. The resolution called for a new investigation due to the “overwhelming evidence” that “pre-planted explosives . . . caused the destruction of the three World Trade Center buildings.
On July 24, 2019, the Franklin Square and Munson Fire District, which oversees a volunteer fire department serving a hamlet of 30,000 residents just outside of Queens, New York, became the first legislative body in the country to officially support a new investigation into the events of 9/11, according to Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth.
The resolution calling for a new investigation was drafted by Commissioner Christopher Gioia and it was immediately and unanimously approved by the five commissioners.
‘“We’re a tight-knit community and we never forget our fallen brothers and sisters. You better believe that when the entire fire service of New York State is on board, we will be an unstoppable force,” said Commissioner Christopher Gioia, adding, “We were the first fire district to pass this resolution. We won’t be the last.”’
“According to the report
“The complaint cites the failure of the FBI and its 9/11 Review Commission to assess key 9/11-related evidence that the FBI can be shown to have had, or been aware of, regarding:
- the use of pre-placed explosives to destroy World Trade Center Buildings, 1, 2, and 7;
- the arrest and investigation of the “High Fivers” observed photographing and celebrating the attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11;
- terrorist financing related the reported Saudi support for the 9/11 hijackers;
- recovered plane parts, including serial numbers from all three crash locations;
- video from cameras mounted inside and outside the Pentagon; and
- cell phone communications from passengers aboard airplanes.”
Those of us who have been following “conspiracy theories” for decades are about to see a few of them, at least, become validated. I am excited to finally learn the truth about what happened on 9/11. The official explanation that airplanes took down the Towers was always preposterous to me. We’ll see.
