Apocalypse now – like, NOW

I couldn’t think of a better or more fitting title for this post today. This morning, shortly after logging on for work, news of the bombing in Afghanistan came across the wire. The whole situation over there has been a mess over the last 20 years, but noticeably so especially over these last few weeks as the US has started pulling out. A number of people were killed, including US service persons. Another tragic loss of life. But even so, this alone certainly isn’t “apocalypse worthy.” But one has to take in the context of everything else that’s going on right now. And it’s a LOT.

And the thing about what’s going on is that some of the events are global, and pose existential threats to our species. Of course the major one in that category I am speaking of is climate change. It has been just relentless this year, and reared its head in SO many different ways and places: killer heatwaves, unprecedented rainfalls that have caused deadly flooding, rain in places it’s never rained before, extreme drought in other places, exacerbating/contributing to massive wildfires. It’s just off the charts this last year or two. Even the most skeptical folks are starting to wake up to the reality that the climate is changing, RAPIDLY.

Then there is the covid pandemic – a truly global phenomenon that has touched every country on earth I believe. Of course, chances of it wiping out the entire species are extremely low, especially considering the fact that humanity has made it through other ones – the flu of 1918, the Black Death in the Middle Ages, etc. However, it exposes something else that most certainly DOES pose an existential threat, and that is a level of willful ignorance and disregard for the lives of others, including children, that is truly shocking – even to old cynics like me. The stuff that is going on in Florida and Texas right now, it’s right out of a dystopian novel. And it’s easy enough to just tell ourselves that those are isolated pockets of insanity. But I have a number of friends whose spouses or other family members are avid conspiracy theorists. My wife works with a woman who is one, as is her husband. There are far more of these people out there than any of us would like to believe – and they definitely pose a threat to our species. Imagine if covid had like a 90% mortality rate, and we were trying to contain it, with all their misinformation. It would be a BAD thing for humanity, for sure.

And what drives that existential threat is the rise and global reach and influence of social media. In fact, someone who commented on my last video mentioned that and asked if I would address the dark mentalists more in my next one, especially in the context of social media, explain if/how they are using it to do what they do. Absolutely, they are using it, and it is DEFINITELY having a negative impact on our world, as referenced above. Another effect is has is creating this situation right here:


Now to be sure, social media didn’t create the whole “women as sexual objects” thang. No, that’s been around for a long, LONG time. But it has certainly increased the visibility of women and girls as she, and also increased the expectations on what a “pretty” girl is supposed to look like. It has also laid bare just how screwed up our values as a society are: we value this woman more for her face, butt and boobs than we do her skills as a healthcare worker – and all of this in the time of a pandemic. Honestly, that article is what sent me over the “apocalypse edge” today. If there were any better example of a modern day Babylon…

This is all good and well, we are in the apocalypse, the end of days is here, yadda yadda yadda lol. But so what – what can we do about it? Well, that’ what I’m here for! I am planning on doing a 2, maybe more, part video series called “Crash Course on Spiritual Survival” during which I am going to talk about the spirituality I practice, how it is grounded (as I see it) in science, why that’s important, and then the actual spiritual dynamics of what’s happening, the focus on ignorance over evil, and how – just as Willy said – we all have the same ultimate destiny – to be healers. I even made an outline, on the suggestion of a fellow “doomscroller” I have gotten to know via Twitter.

I’m looking forward to doing the vid, and am going to try a different technique for video capture – going to just use my phone instead of the computer. It will give me more flexibility, and I think the video will look better. I will be curious to see if anything ELSE happens between now and then. I did notice a post about this sunspot today, and had a bit of a prescient feeling about it… who knows, we’ll see if it pops off like I am thinking it might. If it does, well, there will just be another thing to talk about it!

Holy crap – the synchronicities are INSANE!

Ok, this is getting to the point that I am almost losing ability to function in actual career, as the number of synchronicities and coincidences is piling up so much, so often – it’s just astonishing. To think that at one point, not that long ago, I was afraid I might never again experience a period like that one all those years ago. I’m about one miracle away from saying that what’s happening now actually ECLIPSES that, if you can believe that.

I should probably try to list them all out here for posterity or something, but I’m vibing way too hard right now, if that makes sense lol. So here is a bullet list – this is all just today:

  • Was pondering the organization of the Eternal Temple last night, then saw the post from Anna about people need to create stuff together, basically
  • Chatting with Kristi about the golden eagle being hurt, how she prayed in the Temple about it, “Love it if We Made it” came on ALT Nation at that very moment
  • A few people posted some stuff about dreams involving the sun, I posted a poll about it, this afternoon a friend posts a spaceweather notification that the sun popped off 2 C class flares and small CME
  • Tessi finally checked her mail, and sent me a text flipping and tripping out, because she was literally JUST going to text me to ask for a crystal or necklace, only to open the mailbox and find one

I think I even missed a few, but this is the gist of what’s been happening. Reading this over as an objective observer (I just tried that), it’s easy enough to say “meh,” and I wouldn’t blame anyone. That’s the thing about synchronicities – there is a major aspect to them that is subjective, that another person can’t necessarily “get” without having experienced it themselves. Some are easy enough to get the general specialness of, like the story Jung tells about the beetle showing up on the window outside his office when he was working with a patient. But some require a little more background, or intimate, inside knowledge.

In any case, even my daughter said that she has been experiencing a ton of them too, and was actually feeling some anxiety about it. I get it. It’s so unreal, that it doesn’t quite feel right – almost unsettling. Hmmm… that sounds familiar.. wasn’t there a video titled that or something? Lol

But I told her to embrace it, to recognize it as magical and spiritual and that it was a sign in being in Flow with the Universe. She seemed to feel better after that. It truly is magical, and the thing this time is, I’m SOBER! And it’s not just me this time either – it’s a bunch of different people! Wow… I swear, I am literally vibrating. I find myself wishing SOOO much again that I could just win the lottery or something so I could have all my free time to devote to this, to the Temple. This stuff is happening, like, really, and I want so badly to be able to help bring focus to this energy to assist in the creation of something truly grand!

I pray that the opportunity will manifest in my reality soon. I always had an intuition that when the time was right, it would happen. And I have been wrong many, MANY times before. I am really hoping and praying that

1 – it was/is real intuition and not just wishful thinking, and

2- that this really is the time, because I feel like I have been waiting FOREVER. And

3 – this is my destiny I believe, like the thing I am really good at, the thing I want to give back to humanity, to Mother Earth, to all the plants and animals and other living things, to all the Teachers who have come before.

In a phrase from Hamilton, “I don’t wanna’ miss my SHOT!”

If there was ever a time, it is now. If ever there was enough high strangeness, synchronicity, and magic happening, it is now. Please Spirit/Creator/Source/God, let it be NOW!

Cast ye not your pearls…?

Yesterday, I was feeling a bit inspired, really grabbed on to the “Grand Attunement” idea, was pretty stoked, and actually thinking about doing a video on it. That was yesterday.

Today, whatever inspiration I had is pretty much completely gone. I checked back on my YouTube channel, and interest seems to have completely fallen off a cliff. My first vid got like 70 views – the next 2, like only 20 or so. Which indicates to me that over half of the people who watched the first one weren’t interested enough in whatever message I had to offer to watch any more. Or perhaps the awesome production value was just too much for them lol.

Now of course I know, have known for a long time, that it is a very small population of people indeed who are truly interested in the stuff I am, to the depth I am. It’s always been that way. I had thought, hoped, that the community on twitter was a bigger audience, and certainly, 20 views is like 18 more than I would have expected. I guess I was just hoping for a little more interest. To be sure, I have a few people who are extremely interested, and I don’t want to downplay or take that, or them, for granted. I GREATLY appreciate them (you know who you are lol), and I would happily continue making videos if it was only them interested.

I guess I never really gave up on the dream I had all those years ago of truly being some kind of “prophet” for the current age. That probably sounds very self important, or like a delusion of grandeur, but if one knows about the fate of most *true* prophets, it’s not a position of fame, fortune, acclaim, etc – hence Jesus saying “And he said, Verily I say unto you, No prophet is accepted in his own country” Luke 4:24.

So I guess I pretty much answered whatever question I had then, didn’t I? True prophets – not that I am one, mind you, though I aspire to be – don’t get rich, don’t have tons of followers, don’t become “influencers.” We are the voices in the wilderness that cry out to those who will listen. And what do we really know anyway? Honestly, it doesn’t take any prophetic skills to see where we are right now in this world, and where we are headed. No, it’s become painfully clear even to the skeptics.

I do have some kooky ideas about some things I thought/think might be possible, and throw them out sometimes to see if others think they might be so too. I always hope that someone will. And as I mentioned, there are a few people who are there with me; for them, I am extremely grateful. But maybe my thoughts and ideas aren’t really “prophecies” or divinely inspired – maybe they are just what they are, kooky ideas I have that are more wishful thinking than anything. Maybe other people see that, and that’s why they don’t stick.

So maybe I need to start keeping those ideas to myself and to my inner circle of friends who truly are interested. Maybe there is no real value in exposing myself and my deepest thoughts to the world; maybe it’s the “cast ye not your pearls before the swine” – not that they are pearls, and certainly not that I think anyone out there is “swine.” But maybe putting myself out there is doing more harm to me than good for others. I don’t know. That’s certainly how I’m feeling today.

So I won’t be doing any video today. I spent some time doing some personal research on some Native American teachings about the True White Brother/Pale One, but will probably just save them for a later blog post. UFOs are far more interesting and glamorous than this stuff. And if it’s hard to provide any proof for them, well – good luck proving ANY of this drivel! This prophet is out for the day, maybe the week or month a far as videos go. I will continue posting here on my lightly trafficked website where I can whine and wallow in self-pity mostly unnoticed. I guess if there is any real benefit in having very little interest, it’s that!

You call it “coincidence” – I call it “coin-incidence”

I swear, I have to do a video for those who don’t, and will probably never read this blog – so I can let everyone know what I mean by that. But in short, a “coin-incidence” is a coincidence that is much more than just that – most often, something directly related to my spiritual path. And today, I had just such an experience.

When my wife and I went to Sedona a few weeks back (posted selfie on Twitter, I think it was the most “likes” I’ve ever received lol) I bought a few crystals. I bought an azeztulite for me, which I planned on setting and wearing, had been wanting one. I also bought one for my daughter – an aqua aura quartz, because I thought it was pretty, and I liked what it said about the properties, thought it would be nice for her.

I thought they were really pretty, so I also picked one up for myself, figured maybe I would wear it sometime, or maybe set it and give it to someone else.

So yesterday, I finally got around to setting all of them, and they turned out pretty nicely.

This morning, I put the azeztulite (the one in the middle) on.

A little while later, a friend IM’d me saying she was feeling some anxiety, depression – feeling overwhelmed with everything that’s going on in the world. I told her I got it, and sent her this message:

After sending this, I noticed a little while later that I wasn’t really resonating with the azeztulite. I wore it for a few hours, but for some reason, it just didn’t “feel” right. So I took it off, and put the aqua aura quartz I had made for myself on. I really liked the feel of it, and kept it on – have it on now.

I started looking around on the web a bit to see what more I could find out about them. The card at the shop I bought them at said they are good for calming emotions, soothing anger, and attracting peace and prosperity – all stuff I thought would be great for my daughter. Well, I did a little looking, and wanna take a guess about what I found out about that stone?

Go back up and look at the tweet I sent earlier, the words in quotes.

Then look at the first line on this:

(from https://www.healing-crystals-for-you.com/aqua-aura.html)

Or maybe this:

“Aqua Aura safeguards against psychic attack, energy drain and spiritual vampirism, and provides profound peace during meditation, opening gateways to the angelic realm. “

(from https://www.crystalvaults.com/crystal-encyclopedia/aura-quartz/)

Now I get it, someone could read this and say, “Dude, it’s just a coincidence. Those crystals all say they are for a bunch of stuff, something was bound to match.” Ok, true.

But I can say now that I can’t remember the last time (?) I used the term “psychic attack,” and in fact, as I said, it’s not something I really put a lot of thought into. So there’s that.

And of course, there’s the timing – that I just happened to say that phrase that I don’t know that I’ve said ever in the last (?) years. And the fact that I had no intention of wearing that aqua aura quartz originally – I wanted the azeztulite. And I had no idea that it was for the “psychic attack” stuff.

So, for me, on my path, this is a perfect example of a true “coin-incidence.” This is not just mere coincidence – no sirree, not to me. No, this is more. And it’s deeply meaningful, as well as reassuring, and just freakin’ cool! I mean, it’s just a bit unreal, isn’t it? But it isn’t – it really happened. And I LOVE that!

It’s somewhat interesting this happened on the day Anjali had her presser too. She got savaged by a lot of people, and in all honestly, I was a bit disappointed, and didn’t think it was the best presentation for her. That being said, I really like her a lot, find her sweet, authentic, and I love her message. And I know what it’s like (ahem…) to have something happen that a lot of people just wouldn’t believe unless it had happened to them.

I can’t speak for what happened to her, as I wasn’t there. And I hope that in time, more will be revealed in that situation. But I know what happened to me today, and while it might just seem like a silly little thing to some people, this is IT for me – this is the stuff I live for – those moments when I KNOW I am on the Path, because the Path reaches into my life, my conscious awareness and experience, and says “We see you! You’re on the Path! Keep going! We’re right there with you!”

To that, I say “Thank you God/Spirit/Universe/Source/Creator/One!!!”

Now, on YouTube!

That’s right – if this blog posts aren’t boring and confusing enough, I’m on YouTube now to further confound you! Lol.

Gotta’ be honest, I was pretty nervous, and although pretty happy with the first vid, know I have a lot of room for improvement. My favorite part was the little “Ding!” when I gave a shout out to this site – oh man, that cracked me up. So I want to try to loosen up a bit and inject more humor. We are in some pretty heavy times, for sure. But if there is one thing I KNOW, it’s that God/Spirit/Universe/Source has a sense of humor. So look for more of that.

And I will probably try to keep them a bit shorter, if I can. It’s just tough, because there is SO much, everything truly is connected. That’s why I’ve not yet been able to get a book together – just too much.

So we’ll see how this goes. People have been telling me since I was young that I should have been a comedian – perhaps that was their nice way of saying, “You’ve got a face made for comedy” lol.

Not sure if I will keep posting here too or not, but guessing I will, especially when I don’t have the time or the conditions aren’t right to make a video. It will be nice to have an additional outlet. Maybe I can figure out the perfect mix – a little blog, a dash of Twitter, maybe just a HINT of Facebook – throw some YouTube on that thang and let it rip! Modern prophet gotta’ prophesy somehow, am I right?

The Coming of the Light – Part III

I’ve been stuck on twitter today, going back and forth between reading posts about the pandemic and the IPCC climate change report – neither of which bode well for humanity. Denial of science has become a platform for a certain party in this country and is having devastating effects – ones that will impact the whole world. In the midst of that hopelessness, grief and frustration, I thought it would be the perfect time to talk about something that can provide real hope – a real light to shine through the darkness. And for me, that comes in the form of part III of my post on, what else, the coming of the light! Appropriate, doncha’ think? Lol.

In the first post, I talked about the times we are currently in, and the “superpower” I would pick if I could choose one. In part II, talked a little about the scientific possibility that DNA could be altered spontaneously, that mutations could arise suddenly – science allowed for that. And for me or anyone to have any hope of actually becoming a photosynthetic being, that would need to be possible – we would need to be able to alter our DNA to enact such changes. This post, I am going to talk about how that might happen, by what mechanism(s) our DNA could be altered. Turns out, there are more than one. And if you think about the symbolism of the various methods, a lot of teachings from mysticism come – ahem – to light (I can’t help it, ok?).

Before I get going on this, I need to point something out. When I was a kid, I used to play an RPG called “Gamma World.” And for the true nerds out there, of COURSE I played D&D too! I played all kinds of RPGs. But I digress – back to the point. The premise of Gamma World is (from Wikipedia):

“Gamma World is a chaotic, dangerous environment that little resembles pre-apocalyptic Earth. The weapons unleashed during the final war were strong enough to alter coastlines, level cities, and leave large areas of land lethally radioactive. These future weapons bathed the surviving life of Earth in unspecified forms of radiation and biochemical agents, producing widespread, permanent mutations among humans, animals, and plants. As a result, fantastic mutations such as extra limbs, super strength, and psychic powers are relatively common.”

What does that have to do with my point? Today, when one reads any kind of scientific literature or article, mutations are ALWAYS described as harmful, destructive, or deadly. And, most often, that probably is the case. However, that doesn’t mean it always is the case. In Gamma World it wasn’t. And indeed, one would have to think that just by chance, there would have to be mutations that incurred some kind of advantages sometimes too. Just look at the coronavirus – the Delta variant has mutations that have been positive for it, causing it to be much more transmissible; no reason to think a comparable positive mutation couldn’t happen in a human. So keep that in mind when I reference some of these articles, and the mutation is always referred to in a negative light.

Oh, and one more thing – I am not a nuclear scientist, biologist, etc, so I’m sure I am going to make some leaps, assertions and assumptions that might not hold up to strict scientific scrutiny. But chances are, if you’re reading this, you know that already. That being said, I’m not completely ignorant of science either, and am not the dimmest bulb on the porch necessarily lol. I definitely won’t be defending or arguing any of these points thought. It’s my beliefs, thoughts, intuitions, conclusions, and I could be full of it – or not. Time will tell.

One of the ways mutations can happen, and this one is REALLY cool, is via the mind, mediation to be more exact. I’m not going to go too deep into this, the point being mainly to provide some evidence from a credible source that our minds CAN impact our DNA.

“Lead investigator Dr. Linda E. Carlson and her colleagues found that in breast cancer patients, support group involvement and mindfulness meditation – an adapted form of Buddhist meditation in which practitioners focus on present thoughts and actions in a non-judgmental way, ignoring past grudges and future concerns — are associated with preserved telomere length. Telomeres are stretches of DNA that cap our chromosomes and help prevent chromosomal deterioration — biology professors often liken them to the plastic tips on shoelaces. Shortened telomeres aren’t known to cause a specific disease per se, but they do whither with age and are shorter in people with cancer, diabetes, heart disease and high stress levels. We want our telomeres intact.”

(from https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/changing-our-dna-through-mind-control/)

And then there’s this:

“Eric Kandel, the winner of the 2000 Nobel Prize for Medicine also showed, contrary to what had long been believed, that even our genes can change. Not only can our brains change, we can also change the genes we inherited or the personal characteristics we’ve created in those genes and consequently lessen, or eliminate totally, our beliefs about genetic predisposition.

Kandel’s research proved that our thinking, behavior and the way we stimulate our brain can actually influence the aspect of the gene that causes it to turn on or off certain proteins, proteins that influence our level of awareness, what we believe is possible, our emotional reactions and how much motivation, creativity and happiness we have.”

(from https://www.demingheadlight.com/story/news/2016/03/20/can-your-brain-change-your-dna/82048262/)

I don’t know about you, but what I get out of those is that it is possible, there is valid scientific reason to believe that thought, behavior, mediation CAN change DNA. Now the question is, just how much can it be changed? What are the limits? Are there any? And what is possible if someone truly BELIEVES it can be changed and engages in a course of thought and action in an attempt to make some changes – what might be possible?

Of course, our minds aren’t the only thing that can cause mutations. There is always good old radiation, just like in Gamma World. In that scenario, the radiation is primarily from nuclear attacks – fallout and such. But there is another giant source of radiation that we are all exposed to every single day – the sun. And again, current knowledge says that all solar radiation is bad for us. Lord knows, I am acutely aware of that. My family knows me as the “sunscreen king” lol. I have extremely pale skin, and after some extremely painful sunburns when I was young, I decided I would not let that happen again.

That being said, the greater point is that solar radiation causes mutations.

“UVB light interferes directly with the bonding between the nucleotides in the DNA. The two main DNA lesions formed by exposure to UVB are cyclobutane pyrimidine dimers (CPD) and 6-4 pyrimidine pyrimidone photoproducts (6-4PPs), and its Dewar isomers.”

(from https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/28109890/)

“The mutations induced by radiation can also occur spontaneously. When humans are exposed to low doses of radiation, it is difficult to estimate what small increment of mutations is induced by radiation above that from spontaneous background radiation. However, radiation has been found to be mutagenic in all organisms studied so far, and there is no reason to suppose that humans are exempt from radiation’s mutagenic effects. “

(from https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK218706/)

So what’s the takeaway here? Well, here’s what I get:

  1. Spontaneous DNA mutations are possible, do happen.
  2. Mutations can actually be caused by meditation, thinking, behavior, etc.
  3. Mutations can also be caused by solar radiation.
  4. Science tells us, and most often it is true, that most mutations are negative, detrimental to an organism.
  5. Mutations can confer benefit to an organism, and do, as is evidenced currently by covid selecting positive mutations.

I, we, are creating a bedrock of belief upon which to build the future.

A number of posts on twitter lately have been asking what people know about the future, how they can know that there will be some “great awakening,” or that the aliens will come down to save us, or that the world will end, what it will be like. And I, like many people, get confused sometimes because there are SO many different moving parts, so many things going on at the same time, and so many different possible outcomes. I do know that our society is in a real pickle, between the rapid climate change the and pandemic. I also believe, based on prophecy, my intuition, and what others tell me, that there is something much deeper, more poignant going on on different levels of consciousness, of manifestation. So how is it all going to go?

I don’t know exactly, but in my next post, I am going to try tie this all up with a nice bow and hopefully provide something that might give you some comfort, some food for thought, some material for meditation, and maybe even spur something in you that you can bring to the conversation. Maybe a little seed will be planted in your consciousness that will unlock some keys we need to help get us to that next level. I know I am SO ready! Aren’t you? Until next time – blessings of Love, Light and Unity.

Ancient Prophecy about Patriotism

Ok, a little hyperbolic lol. This is the content of a post I created 12 years ago. I re-read it today, and was blown away by how timely it seems. Maybe I’m tooting my own horn too much, I do try to practice humility. But this really is good, and quite prescient too, IMHO.

June 29, 2012

In the alternative news/conspiracy circles, we all know about the evil plans of The Illuminati, The Bilderbergers and all the other power brokers that make up The Cabal. We know all about their plans to institute a “New World Order” in which we will all be subjects in their totalitarian regime. We all know that we need to hold on to our individual liberties with all our might and be willing to fight and die for them if we have to, right? We CANNOT let them win – we must stand strong! I am guessing that if you agree with all or most of that, this next bit is probably going to bum you out, but guess what? They’ve already won.

“Nonsense!” you shout back as you look at your gun safe full of weapons, reading all of the conspiracy-busting sites on the web and taking pride in the fact that they will only take control over your dead body! But see, the thing is, it’s not your body they are worried about – never has been : it’s your mind. And in the realm of the greatest mind game ever played by the greatest minds never known, we the people of the planet earth have lost already – we have been completely duped, and we don’t even know it yet. I’m sure you want an explanation of what the holy hell I am talking about, and so I will do my best to give that.

First off, think for a minute about what “freedom” means to you… what does it mean to be completely free? Freedom to say what you want to say? Freedom to own and possess firearms? Freedom to worship as you wish? Freedom to own land and conduct commerce? Most people would probably agree with all of these and even add a few more. Here in the USA, we think we have a pretty good idea about what freedom is (I mean, we are the “land of the free”, right?) and we have already fought many times to defend that freedom.

Now, think a little further… do you consider yourself free now? Of course I know we could all say that our freedoms have been paired back due to the Patriot Act and other things, but in all reality, has any of that impacted YOUR freedom? Have YOU been rounded up by the FBI and taken away to be water boarded? (of course, if you have, this is probably not sitting well with you, but please bear with me – I think the underlying message will still get through). My guess is that 98% of the approximately 3 people that might end up reading this will answer “no” to that question, meaning that, for all intents and purposes, we are still free.

Going even further, what if none of us were really as free as we think we are? What if we were being manipulated at such a level – stay with me here – that even though we think we KNOW what they are doing to ‘control’ and manipulate us, that is actually part of the great manipulation itself? What if ‘they’ were the ones who were driving all these conspiracy theories to trick us into thinking that, if nothing at all happens – no mass roundups, no trains being loaded for the FEMA camps, no mass gun confiscations – we have “won”? Those who don’t follow any of this stuff wouldn’t care or notice one way or the other, and the fact that they haven’t taken notice or heed of any of this stuff at all is a testament to the fact that mentally and spiritually speaking, they are already ‘dead’. But for those of us who have struggled for wisdom and awareness and have vigilantly sought out the truth, what would it mean if nothing at all happened? At least nothing like we expect anyway…

At this point, you are probably wondering why I said they’ve won already, and I will tell you : they have won because over the last 6000 years or so, ‘they’ have instilled in our heads that violence and war are necessary for us to maintain our ‘freedom’; they have conditioned us to accept that we must defend what is ours against others who think differently; they have taught us that we must have money – whether it be shiny metal, clear stones, or pretty paper – to exchange for the things we need to survive; and in their greatest victory, they have taught us that it will NEVER be possible to truly have world peace – that it is the pipe dream of pussies and pansies, and that our “God” actually wants US to be the victors in this grand battlefield earth. That my friends, is the victory that they have accomplished.

Don’t believe me? Think about it : even while our young men fight and bleed on the fields of battle, do not our so-called ‘heads of state’ meet in air conditioned rooms to “talk” about how we can end the violence? Why aren’t they fist fighting and wrestling around or shooting each other? And don’t the captains of industry still trade with one another, even those from countries who are at war with each other, while those who are using their goods are killing each other en masse in the blood stained fields and streets? Have you ever wondered why it’s not like it used to be back in the days when kings rode out onto the battlefields themselves and fought with their troops? (ok, that’s been a LONG time ago, but still). I’ll tell you why – because they don’t need to anymore. THEY aren’t fighting anymore – they’ve already WON – all of them!

And their favorite weapon, the insidious secret that they sell to ALL of us, the thing we get SO worked up about, the thing that we all rush and die for in every country of the world, is patriotism – defined at dictionary.com as “devoted love, support, and defense of one’s country; national loyalty. ” Now I’m sure the very SUGGESTION that patriotism is a bad, or at least non-beneficial thing, really riles some people up, and at this moment some probably want to beat me senseless. But hear me out for a minute – please.

The problem is not with patriotism itself, but with what it represents, and that is DIVISION. It inspires the thought that we all live in separate countries that we should love and be willing to die for, without taking into account that we all live on the same planet, and indeed, in essence are all the same and want the same things : happiness, health, good lives for our children, purpose and meaning, usefulness, creative expression. Let’s face it – strip away all the religious dogma, the differences in language and cultural specifics, and all humans basically want for the same things. The real question is, if that is the case, why is that we cordon ourselves off from each other and believe we have to fight and die for beliefs?

If we look back through history, time and time and time again, amazing human beings have come along and tried to tell us that war is not the way, that violence is not the way. The Prophet Muhammad said “Shall I not inform you of a better act than fasting, alms, and prayers? Making peace between one another: enmity and malice tear up heavenly rewards by the roots.”  Jesus said “But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.” The Buddha said “All beings tremble before violence. All fear death. All love life. See yourself in others. Then whom can you hurt? What harm can you do?” And there are quotes from other teachers from other traditions that say the same thing, over and over and over. Many people try to ‘interpret’ what the great teachers said to justify their own means, but do these sayings really need interpreting?

It is clear to me that it is war/violence itself that is the tool ‘they’ use to control us. It is war/violence that is the true Antichrist. It is war/violence that is the Great Deceiver and that which will bring the end of the world as we know it. By keeping us all riled up and ready to go to war, not only against other nations, but even against ourselves and our own government, they have us right where they want us. Look at the world right now, and ask yourself – is violence really going solve the major issues that face us as a species? I submit that it will not – not at all. In fact, it will only add to our woes.

But it will do some things – things that will benefit ‘them’ : it will take all of our attention off of some REAL problems that could cause true misery for all of us, in every country; it will revive economies that are now faltering badly; it will ensure (hopefully) that the winners will have control of precious natural resources that are dwindling rapidly; it could help reduce the population of the world, ensuring that what resources are left will be enough for those that remain; and of course, it will keep us all hypnotized and blind to the fact that while we think we are being good Americans/Russians/Chinese/Syrians/Egyptians/Chileans/Germans etc by taking up our guns and showing our “patriotism” we are merely doing EXACTLY what they want us to do – bowing before the true Master of the Human race, the true Antichrist, the true ruler of the NWO, the Beast of Revelation, the bad guy of bad guys, and the enemy we have never been able to quite see for what it is : WAR/VIOLENCE.

The hippies back in the 60’s gave the idea of world peace a bad name because of their outlandish behavior and often times excessive substance abuse. People like John Lennon sang about it, but were seen as “peace loving radicals” who were against everything we hold dear. But if we look back through the teachings of the masters of old, we see that there is a peace – a new kind of peace not based on long hair and pot smoking, but based on a higher understanding of our global connectedness and the insanity that is war – that we as a conscious and mentally and spiritually evolved species could work towards on this planet. We could defeat them – the NWO, the Cabal, the money mongers, the Rothschilds, the Bilderbergers, the Illuminati, all of them – if we just put the guns down and quit killing each other. Think about that for a while.

If we all, as a species, could somehow find a way to shake ourselves awake and see just how insane and unnecessary war is; if we could make a conscious decision to stop buying into their bullshit and see that we have been duped for thousands of years; if we could read back over The Bible, The Koran, the Dhammapada, The Baghavad Gita, The Torah and see that in essence they all say the SAME things; if we could just let go of everything that’s happened in the past and start anew – then maybe, just maybe we could finally defeat them, for once and for all. But I can tell you this – as long as we think taking up our guns and fighting and killing is the way to maintain our freedom, we will NEVER be free. They know it now, they have always known it, and they will continue to feed us whatever we need to be fed to keep us rallying around our flag poles – all while the world is burning down around us, and they laugh as they all sit together – the American, the Russian, the Egyptian, the Chinese, the Christian, the Jew, the Muslim, the white man, the black man, the Arab – in air conditioned rooms, watching the next episode of “The World’s Dumbest Citizens – at War Again,” starring a cast of 6 billion – hoping that the show gets renewed for season 5,875.

The Coming of the Light (cont.)

Part II

I guess it’s rather obvious that the “superpower” I was referring to in my last post is photosynthesis. I came to this conclusion after pondering, seriously, for several years, what one power or ability I would wish for myself should I be given the opportunity. Of course I thought of all the usual suspects – the ability to fly, to heal myself or others, psychokinesis, super strength, etc. Eventually, I realized that none of these would really give me what I truly desired, which was a way to be independent of the economic system that we all rely on for our survival, and to be able to do so in way that was least impactful to the planet – to be able to live without the need to consume other living things, thereby contributing to resource depletion and climate change. And so, after countless hours pondering, I landed on photosynthesis – something most probably wouldn’t consider a superpower.

But just think about it – without the need to consume food, if we could literally sustain our physical bodies by absorbing sunlight, just how much would that change the world? No more hunger or famine; no reliance on an economic system for our very survival; no more raising animals for consumption, and all the related resource depletion that entails; and on and on. It would truly free us from dependence on money and the life-sucking system they have created to keep us all dependent upon them.

That’s all great and well, but not really worth much if it’s just a pipe dream. I mean, we all wish for superpowers. But what if it wasn’t just a pipe dream? What if it really was – is – possible? What exactly would it take?

For starters, it would take belief that it could actually happen. If I don’t believe it can happen, I won’t be willing to put any time and effort into making it so – why would I? So there has be some mechanism, some theoretical way that it COULD happen for me to believe it. I am, even though a mystic at heart, a pretty scientifically-minded person. So when it comes to subjects like this, I tend to seek out scientific information that might provide at least hints of a way in which something like photosynthesis in humans could actually become a reality. It’s fairly clear that what would need to happen would be some kind of genetic mutation that would alter our cells, at least those necessary, in such a manner that they could perform photosynthesis. But how could such a mutation happen? And even if it could, it would take at least a few generations, right? Turns out, that’s not necessarily the case.

From “Quantum Physics Can Cause Mutations in Our DNA, Study”

https://www.techexplorist.com/quantum-physics-mutations-dna-study/38165/ :

“Scientists found that hydrogen bonds hold the two strands of the DNA‘s double helix together. Under certain circumstances, the hydrogen bonds can behave like spread-out waves that can exist in multiple locations at once, because of proton tunneling. This prompts these atoms to occasionally being found on the wrong strand of DNA, prompting mutations.”

From “Why Does DNA Spontaneously Mutate?”

https://www.livescience.com/quantum-physics-dna-mutations.html :

“In a recent study, published Jan. 29 in the journal Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics, researchers explore another explanation, showing that a quantum phenomenon called proton tunneling can cause point mutations by allowing positively charged protons in DNA to leap from place-to-place. This, in turn, can subtly change the hydrogen bridges that bind the two sides of DNA’s double helix, which can lead to errors when it’s time for DNA to make copies of itself.”

So it turns out, DNA can spontaneously mutate via quantum processes, and even more –

“Despite having a short lifetime, these mutations can survive the DNA replication mechanism inside cells.”

That means that changes can happen, then replicate in other cells.

This was my “AHAAAA…” moment. Here we have a valid, scientifically verified, physical mechanism whereby spontaneous mutations in DNA CAN happen, and even be replicate in other cells. So, theoretically speaking, it SHOULD be possible.

But what exactly does it take to cause those mutations? By what mechanism can they be initiated? That will be the subject of my next post.
