what goes around comes around

Straighten Up and Fly Right is the title of a tune by the great Nat King Cole. Written in 1943, it was based on an old folk tale of a buzzard who offers rides to various animals. When the buzzard gets hungry he throws them off and eats them. But when the monkey gets on the buzzard’s back he wraps his tail around the buzzard’s neck and tells him to “straighten up and fly right.”

Why would something from an old song written in 1943 have any applicability today, in these crazy End Times, when social mores and norms are breaking down?

Because there are time-honored human values, based on natural laws of survival, that humans have practiced for millennia. If these natural, behavioral laws are broken, chaos and misery result. “Straighten Up and Fly Right” (SUFR) is both advice and an admonition. It covers both the Light and Dark aspects of life.

 Implied in SUFR is a warning that being devious and untrustworthy will eventually result in a big fail. A con man, for instance, bases his life on lies. He may experience success for a while, but will eventually fail on a personal level. The same thing will happen to a government or a society.

SUFR is also positive advice to practicing integrity in life. Integrity means “wholeness” and leads to discernment. Discernment means seeing clearly, seeing something (a person or a situation) for exactly what it is. This can only come from having and maintaining a clean personal space.

American society is in a SUFR crisis right now. Our government agencies lie to us routinely, from the mantra that the gene altering mRNA medical countermeasures were “safe and effective,” to the quite obvious propaganda about the unemployment rate, the inflation rate, the jobs reports, the immigration figures, and even about guys burning themselves in public across the street from one of the Trump trials in New York.

What happens when personal and institutional integrity breaks down? Well, it’s hard to even trust what appears to be a straightforward news report, and you get lots of conspiracy theories.

Max Crosby Azarello and the breakdown of institutional integrity

When I saw the pics of  Max Crosby Azarello when they put him on the gurney, his hair was untouched as far as I could tell. How do you self-immolate and not have your hair singed? That’s the first thing to go in a fire. Later reports said that Max Crosby Azarello died in hospital, and maybe he did; end of sad story and I am a nutcase. But there is something fishy about that incident if you ask me. Particularly after I read his manifesto.

This may sound cynical, but “on fire” stunts like that are common in Hollywood. Check this out:

And this:

Max’s uncle, Brian Azarello, has written the popular Dark Knight, Joker, Batman, and 100 Bullets comic book series’, and has film industry connections. So Max may have been familiar with how to properly set himself on fire. But why would he want to do that? Well, my explanation is just as plausible as the manifesto.

Max’s motive and his manifesto

What was Max’s motive for killing himself? For me, his manifesto is entirely too rational and reasoned for a guy who is going to SET HIMSELF ON FIRE and die painfully. The manifesto is essentially a rant against what he calls the Ponzi scheme of cryptocurrency. It is not suicidal – there are only two sentences I found, where he apologizes to his family for what he is about to do – and these sentences seem almost an afterthought. It reads like a blog post, not a suicide letter. Does a man really get so upset about crypto Ponzi schemes that he kills himself? Protesting a war, sure. Being in total despair about a cause you are deeply committed to, sure. But crypto?

Who stands to benefit if crypto goes away? Well, that same gummint Max was raving about in his manifesto. A new Fed Coin will usher in a central bank digital currency that the government owns lock, stock, and barrel. The act of mandating a central bank digital currency as the only legal tender would sweep away all of the other pesky crypto exchanges and coins (like BitCoin). The Federal Reserve’s new coin would be the only game in town. Then, the feds will own your money and could monitor every one of your transactions. The gummint would be able to shut down your account at any time if you go against their wishes.

Call me a crazy conspiracy theorist if you like, but this “on fire” incident could have been an Op. Max – obviously an intelligent guy – rails against crypto corruption but never mentions the obvious and most corrupt crypto scheme: the Fed Coin central bank digital currency. Besides, I just can’t see a guy killing himself because he is just so upset about crypto.

The good news is that if this “on fire” incident was staged, Max is still alive. That makes me feel better at least.

Panicky Feds?

I think the feds panicked when Elon Musk issued his Doge Coin, although it didn’t go anywhere. But what would happen if a gold-backed  crypto coin was issued? Or an alternative currency backed by gold? The latter is precisely what the BRICS countries are trying to do: Create a new gold-backed currency that avoids using the weaponized U.S. dollar. China, India, and Russia are buying and storing as much gold as they can get their hands on in preparation for a new non-dollar world currency. That means trouble for a U.S. government that is simply printing money to cover its massive overspending.

Has the U.S. dollar really been weaponized? Well, the new REPO bill was just included in the $90 billion “foreign aid” bill. The REPO bill confiscates $300 billion of Russia’s money placed (in good faith) in U.S. banks that came from selling legitimate products like LNG, oil, and other products.  So yeah.

What goes around comes around

American society is breaking down into two loose camps: Those who follow SUFR (as hard as that may be at times) and those who don’t. We have seen our federal government act against the wishes and best interests of the people for far too long. Resentment is building underneath the surface for many people. The open corruption in government, in corporations, and in the media is undeniable. These are all signs of the End Times. Some commentators wail that “society is falling apart.” But that is too general. Institutions and people who do not SUFR are falling apart. They are imploding and creating gigantic messes.

But these messes will be seen by everyone, and people will start asking questions, and complaining. In Chicago, Mayor Johnson has budgeted $50 million more for illegal migrants, and the citizens are getting more and more angry. “Why isn’t that money for us citizens?” a citizen asked at a City Council meeting the other day, and pointed out the need for services to the communities in Chicago. When you deal honestly with people you don’t piss them off. When you have a hidden agenda and lie to people, they get angry.

The federal government in DC knows it is rapidly losing support among the citizens. So why not bring in 10-15 million “newcomers” who will be very grateful to be housed in 4-star hotels and given monthly stipends for food and basic necessities? That’s going to generate a lot of gummint support. And a lot of votes.


There is nothing complicated about what is happening in American society. We are being attacked from within and without, because our own government has been attacking and overthrowing foreign governments (and killing their people) since Allen Dulles and his CIA overthrew the democratically elected Mohammed Mossadegh of Iran in 1953.

Imagine doing that for over 70 years all around the world. Quite a lot of karma has developed over that period.

What goes around, comes around.

In the upcoming election, voting in people with personal integrity is much more vital than which political party they belong to.

Straighten up and fly right!

Intention and expectation are the force multipliers of human consciousness.

What will your future be like? That question can be answered by, “What do you expect to happen?”

Expectations determine, in a general way (and sometimes specifically) what will happen to you. A person who constantly thinks that he or she will come down with the latest cold or flu or illness has a much better chance of getting sick, because a very strong resonance has been established toward disease. This isn’t rocket science, really. The entire universe contains energies of every different kind. Every atom, every element in the Periodic Table, has a different energy. Every object in the universe has a distinct and unique energy pattern, otherwise it would not have an independent existence. Every person on earth has a distinct and unique energy.

What if human consciousness itself is also an energy? What if the timeline of a person’s life is an actual, definable energy path? In that case, the expectation that the future will be a certain way places that energy on the future timeline. Then, when you get there, you say, “It’s just what I expected. The same old shit.” And it feels comfortable! Because it’s your energy, so it feels totally natural. “Just more proof that the more things change the more they stay the same.”

I have experienced this so many times, and you probably have too.

All of us are working the puzzle of life with energies that are esoteric, and invisible to the five human senses.

But this isn’t what we are taught.

We are taught that only matter and visible energy (such light and color and mass, and “the current reality”) are valid. But this solution to the puzzle guarantees that the future never changes, for nothing new is created. The energy that is put forth into the future remains the same.

But intention is a force. When a person is motivated or passionate, that can be felt. When a person has the expectation that all will be well, it can be felt. We say that person “has a sunny personality.” A person who expects the future to be dark can also be felt.

So why don’t we pay more attention to our own intent and expectations? Because we are taught that doing this is stupid.

Oh, there is a fringe element in society that talks about “positive thinking” and “the power of thought,” but no one really believes this anymore. Our society seems to be coming apart at the seams, and people are at each other’s throats.

But all of this is learned behavior. IT is programmed behavior.

The American Heritage dictionary defines intention as, “an aim that guides action; an objective.” Merriam-Webster says that intention is “the state of mind with which an action is done.” defines expectation this way: “An expectation is a belief about what might happen in the future, like your expectation to stay close with your best friends your whole life.”

These definitions involve aims, state-of-mind, and belief. These terms are not objects, but qualities or aspects of consciousness. They cannot be quantified or measured. All of them, however, have a unique feeling to them. They are energetic projections (vibrations) of human consciousness. They have an independent existence, they can be felt, they are not negligible.

An aim is something a person might visualize. This visualization will have a distinct energy pattern, a unique feeling. A state-of-mind is a person’s attitude toward something. Attitude is also a feeling, an energy. A bad attitude or a good attitude is recognizable, it can be felt. A belief is a person’s decision about something that will guide their actions. Someone’s beliefs about an issue also create an energy that can be felt. If beliefs are criticized this may trigger someone to anger. We have all experienced this.

So intention and expectation are energies, not just something esoteric and stupid that has little meaning or effect in the world. They are just as real as the “real” world around us.

So what happens when a respected or popular person or political commentator comes up with a vision of the future that is dark? Well, it’s their vision. It’s their energy. It doesn’t have to be yours or mine.

Let’s imagine the power of the energy when the intent and expectations of EIGHT BILLION human beings are accounted for. As individuals we are, via our expectations of the future, placing energies on our personal future timelines that we eventually encounter as individuals. Humanity is also doing this collectively.

We are now at a critical inflection point in the history of humanity and this planet. We have been taught to expect negative outcomes (“peace is just an interval of quiet between wars”), but as people awaken more and more are rejecting this pre-programmed nonsense.

We don’t need 8 billion human beings all intending and expecting a positive future to get a positive future. That’s because the Light is so much more powerful than the dark.

It only takes a relative few of us to create a tipping point in human consciousness, which is in chaos right now.  Maybe we can give it a new direction and a new momentum. Those who understand the power of the Light can be spiritual warriors in this effort. And we can do it quietly, with our family and friends, and in our meditations. And it will spread across the planet, because the Light illuminates the darkness and people respond to the Light.
