Rothschild and Me

I want to repeat something that I first published year ago, but needs to be said again.

I think it was Mayer Rothschild who said: “Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes its laws.”

But I say: “Give me control of a nation’s consciousness and I care not who controls its money.”

Measurement and me

There is a rule of thumb in science that says:

“If it can’t be measured, then it is not real.”

But I say:

“If it can’t be felt, then it is not real.”

“Robes” excerpt #1 – World War III

When the Robes visited, they said that IF there was another world war, it would not look like the first two world wars. They also made a comment that now means much more than it did back in the early 1980s. They said that most of the battle would be between those who wanted to hold onto old ways of doing things, and those who wanted to move ahead to new ways. Now I’m seeing this battle with sharp clarity. The Robes didn’t categorize the two sides in any way, nor did they point out any flaws in the thinking of either side. However, if one side is the cabal of corporation-based corruption that has taken over the U.S. and is pushing their ideas of a completely controlled New World Order, and  the other side is the growing movement to challenge that corruption, what are our alternatives? The last sentence in the excerpt below will give you something to think about.

“As the old ways come to a close and the new ways open, you will see the unfolding of struggle, fighting, and destruction in nearly every corner of your world.

“In the beginning there will be no nuclear weapons used in these battles, and there will be no major, international military conflagrations of a protracted sort that characterized World Wars I and II. But many kinds of serious conflict will spread across every land, bringing quick invasions based on greed and the desire to control others.

“As the nations begin breaking apart, this fighting will escalate and spread to many new places. Along with the ‘official’ international conflicts, there will be regional conflicts everywhere. This will include conflicts between cities and states, within cities and towns, and between tribes and old groupings as neighbor suddenly turns against neighbor…

“…These battles will be fought for all kinds of reasons – over food, water, land, air, animal rights, mineral rights, trade rights, and human rights. There will be arguments and bloodshed over boundaries, the right to govern, the right to speak the truth, the right to live where one wishes, to be spoken to with respect, treated with dignity, and to die when and how one chooses.

“…there will be few places left to run to that are not engaged in fighting, or where human beings are not suffering small wars, persecution, death, environmental disaster, or serious deprivation in large numbers….

“At this point you will realize that, for all intents and purposes, the world is engulfed in what will eventually be termed World War III. It will not look like the first two world wars with a common battlefield, trenches, and two sides lined up to confront one another, but it will be a world war due to the fact that almost everyone is fighting over everything.

“In order to survive you will have to regain a sense of purpose and direction in life, and to gain a sense of direction you will have to do things very differently. Therefore, a great number of the battles will be between those attempting to hold on to old ways of doing things and those who want to move ahead to new ways…If you are wise, you will work to find peaceful and creative ways to help one another.”    (from “Robes – A Book of Coming Changes” based on information the Robes gave me from 1980-1982, and published in 1997.)

If one of the sides in the battle is corruption…then what?

The Real Problems

We don’t have a population problem, we have a problem of arrested human development.

We don’t have a political problem, we have a leadership problem.

We don’t have an agricultural problem, we have a disconnection from Nature.

We don’t have a financial problem, we have a lack of survival skills.

We don’t have a pollution problem, we have a lack of common sense.

We don’t have an educational problem, we have a creativity problem.

We don’t have an immigration problem, we have a problem with equality and compassion.

We don’t have a corporate problem, we have a loss of integrity.

We don’t have a climate change problem, we have an ignorance of the planet.

We don’t have a communication problem, we have forgotten how to listen.

We don’t have a religious problem, we have a loss of inner authority.

We don’t have a media problem, we have a problem with illusion vs. Truth.

Justice vs. Personal Preference

A question that has been slowly forming over the past few years crystalized in my consciousness with the ‘Hobby Lobby decision’ from the Supreme Court.

Is it just me and my imagination… or does it appear to anyone else that the ‘law’ as managed by our legal system is looking more and more like the personal preferences of whoever happens to be in the judge’s seat?

For some naïve reason, I thought that the law represented something higher than personal bias. I thought it had something to do with universal good, and whether you liked a particular law or not was irrelevant because it stood for what was intrinsically right, fair, and just. It symbolized a higher consciousness that would guide us in daily life.

However, there have been a series of legal decisions and their reversals that have made it look like the law is not really law. It looks more and more like a system based on some other guy’s beliefs. If a law is nothing more than that guy’s belief, what makes his beliefs any more of a law than my own? That might sound like playing with anarchy, but if we are going to have a nation based on the rule of law, that law better damn well be something that stands up under rigorous tests of consciousness – not conscience – since the whole idea of conscience is much too tangled with religious biases.

This latest entanglement seems to be a blatant violation of the ‘separation of church and state’ principles that our country was founded upon. People fled Europe in the Middle Ages because of cruel and unreasonable persecutions based on religious bias. It looks to me that Hobby Lobby and a huge number of other corporations are leading us right back down the primrose path to the divisiveness, greed, and distrust fostered by religion.
