12 Wishes for Christmas – #7

#7 – Each day of the next 365 days may a few more people begin to understand that the kind of food you eat affects the kind of consciousness you can have. The condition of the perceptual equipment affects the quality of the signals you pick up and give off.

12 Wishes for Christmas – #5

#5 – May the people of Earth reconnect with that Earth and re-establish communication with all the intelligences of nature. May we remember that when we hear the words, “We are all in this together,” that it includes the trees, the chickens, the roses, the sun, the wind, the houses, the deer, the whales, and every single pebble and rock that exists. Everything is alive. Everything communicates.

We Are Not All One

We are not all one! We are all different in weirdly wonderful and unique ways. Think of it like this. The world is a giant barrel of flour. The flour is used to make bread dough. Some of the dough is made into loaves to become toast or sandwiches, some into cinnamon rolls or dumplings, and some into bagels, pizza, or croutons. Additional ingredients can be added or left out to make pita pockets, a simple form of paste, maybe gravy, cookies, or pie crust. There is flour in all of these, but each is different and has different reasons for being. It is the same with us. Are we all one? No, not in a practical sense. Do we all have a common ingredient? Yes. We are all made of light. Is there only one kind of light? Nope. There are many frequencies, each a unique color and sound. How much does the average human know about light? Not much. Why are we made of light? Who knows! However, light has the capacity to perceive, to hear, to communicate, to move about, and to organize or re-organize itself. Using modern industrial language, we could truthfully say humans are a product of the light. What do we usually say?  “I have been created by God.”

All One?

I get this question a lot, so I asked the person who sent it if she would mind if I used her question to put the answer out there again. She wrote:

I am having a hard time understanding how our people, husbands, wives, brothers, sisters and so on who are soldiers would ever walk against the people in our own country. They are us, how do we come to grips with that?

The effort to understand how some people can go against others is a HUGE step in understanding the nature of reality. We are all here to evolve and change. It is very difficult to change if you are not in a physical system. We come to this physical system after having made all sorts of agreements and contracts with one another to teach certain things. Before we get here there is a great deal of time and energy spent planning a life and getting others to come back with you and play certain roles that will force you to change. The people who love us the most will often take on the role of the most frustrating people in our life. Why? Because only someone who cares for you a lot will have the stamina to withstand your anger and continue to teach until you get it. Of course, we usually set things up so that our favorite people are teaching one thing, and we are teaching them something they need. It’s a beautiful system for evolution and change.

As for your comment, “They are us, how do we come to grips with that?” Most people take the “we are all one” concept way too far. Yes, we are all made of Source material, which is Light, however, in a physical system, we are all separate, all different, and it bothers me a lot that people try to lump everyone together instead of celebrating our differences, exploring the mystery of another human, and making space for the collective reality to grow and evolve because of the millions of unique contributions of all of us here. We are not all one – except in terms of the Light that we are all made of – and insisting that we are defeats the entire purpose and joy of individual existence within a physical reality system.

The Shiny, Red Prius and I

A month ago I was driving home from Kalamazoo with my son, Nathan. Traffic was very heavy, and I had to get into the lane to my left or I would have been stuck in a ‘turn right only’ lane. There was just enough room, so I put my blinker on and pulled over. However, the instant I put my blinker on, a bright, shiny red Prius tried to speed up to try to block me from getting over. The driver literally laid on the horn, but I kept merging, thinking, “No…I need to get over now…and there’s enough room…”

I drove along for a few miles and through several more traffic lights, noticing that the shiny new Prius was RIGHT on my bumper. When it was time for me to turn, the Prius turned right with me and I thought, “Oh, she’s going in the same direction I’m going!” There was a second right turn I was supposed to make, but I missed it because it was sooner than I expected, so I went down the street to the next right turn, thinking I would have to find a spot to turn around. When I made that second right turn, the Prius was still right behind me. I noticed this but was busy looking for a place to turn around.

I spotted a driveway and turned left into it. I put the car in reverse and started to back up just as I looked in the rear view mirror – and just as the woman in the bright red Prius laid on the horn again. I slammed on my brakes to avoid backing into her and naively thought, “Oh! I wonder if she lives here and wants to get in her driveway.” She was still laying on the horn and her car was half-turned, which left her blocking both lanes of traffic. She had me pinned in, so I sat there thinking, “Lady, how can I get out of your way when you’ve got me blocked in?”

At that point Nathan became irritated. He snapped, “Mom, she’s been following you for miles!” then hopped out of the car and went back to yell at the woman in the red Prius. She was a big, blonde woman who opened her car window and the two of them began a shouting match. The windows of my car were barely open so I could hear the loud voices, but I couldn’t make out what was being said. When the shouting match went on long enough to stop several cars in both directions, I got out of my car to see if I could calm things down. But the woman in the red Prius suddenly jammed her car in reverse and took off, special finger high in the air, her words trailing back at me, “Get off the roads…you’re dangerous!”

When I was finally back home again, I reflected on the whole incident. How could that woman have been so angry that she would follow me for miles, intending to…to what? Yell at me? Why would anyone be so upset at not being able to position themselves 20 feet farther ahead on the road that they would irrationally drive miles out of their way to try to punish the imaginary offender?

In the end, I realized that Americans are ridiculously, dangerously angry. I see it in the way people treat one another as if everyone is an enemy, a threat, or a competitor. I hear it in the way people talk to one another with demanding, disdainful or imperious tones and words. I witness it in the way people act out their vengeance, their greed, their selfishness, their fear. I feel it in the arrogance and the automatic assumptions that others bear us nothing but ill-will and judgment.

At this point, probably half of the anger is the unrelenting corruption that everyone is swimming in and doesn’t know what to do with. The other half is the diet that people eat that has no nutrition in it. Without plenty of magnesium, you will not want to be touched physically and will become defensive and angry if someone touches you. Without calcium, you will be fatigued, irritable, and impatient. Without potassium, you will not be able to perceive correctly what is really going on around you and will be unable to stay ‘present.’ Without sodium chloride, you will not be able to recognize patterns or put facts together in a way that alerts you as to proper behavior. Without zinc you literally will have dim sensory input from this reality and will spend an inordinate amount of time in daydreams or outright delusions. Without iron, you will not want to move your body, thus exercise never happens and frustration builds up. And these are only the 6 major minerals. What happens when the major vitamins and the many trace minerals needed are not present either? You get criminal behavior!

How can we work together – cooperate, collaborate, communicate – to build a new world if we are all angry? People are NOT bad, they are just sick, mostly from malnutrition. When we are healthy, we are naturally joyful and at peace within the self and with one another. Whether the internet goes down or not, whether the financial system crashes or not, if we want a new world that works better, we’re gonna have to get some real food into us…food without GMOs, Round-up, or other harmful stuff in it…and that’s just a start. A new world means a lot of personal responsibility!

The Grid – Update #3

I have been watching things quite closely in terms of the possibility of an internet collapse and/or fall of the financial system. There hasn’t been much change in the trajectory, although the energies shifted a little after last Monday. I’ve been thinking deeply about what I’m seeing, and have taken a little action that I thought I would share.

A friend of mine and myself got together a week ago or so and did some anchoring of what we call The Paradise Codes. My messages beforehand were, “Do not interfere or try to stop what is happening. Many changes need to be made.” So we were careful not to interfere with anything that may be in the works regarding the internet or the financial system. However, we spent a good hour anchoring things like resilience in people, cooperation, collaboration, communication and a deeply felt sense of community here on the Earth so that if anything did happen, we would tend to pull together rather than pulling apart.

The last time this same friend and I worked on a Paradise Code project, which was a couple years ago, out goal was to shut down the HAARP installation in Alaska. Within a month of our work, HAARP closed down. It reopened very briefly for a month or two, and then closed completely.

Money and Trust

If you were an alien being standing just far enough away from Earth to watch the events going on every day, you would see billions of people trading things back and forth among themselves in order to make sure that everyone has what they need. You would see that in some places life is quite simple (say…rural Indonesia) but most have what they need, while in other places (say the U.S.), people think they need much more than they actually do, and as a result of this, those people really work hard at getting things for one another. You might notice that a few areas really don’t have what they need, but overall, most true needs are met.

From your point of view as a watcher of all this, you might marvel at the amount of collaboration going on all over the earth, especially in those places where big group projects are being worked on. You might also notice lots of people dealing with some imaginary stuff called money, and if you didn’t understand or believe in money yourself, you might wonder why they bother with money when it’s clear they are all plenty busy making sure that the participants in their world have the real things that they need.

It is fairly well-known and documented that the dollars we use to transact business among ourselves are not backed by anything “real.” In other words, the dollars are printed and distributed to everyone, and then we all pretend that they have great power. We use them to buy milk and bread, gas for our cars, shower gifts for a pregnant niece, a boat, or a house. This is the equivalent of playing the game Monopoly®, but we don’t seem to see that it’s a game. We really believe in the dollars and their power. We believe in these dollars and their power so much, that we have even moved them into abstraction as imaginary dollars inside a debit or credit card. But what is that power based on? It is based on trust.

We go to work every day trusting that at some point in the near future, someone is going to give us money for showing up. We go to the store, get our milk and bread, and hand our debit card to the clerk. She swipes the card through her machine, hands us a receipt, and we leave the store…leaving the store merchant to trust that some dollars will now be moved into his account so he can go and get what he needs. It is the same at the gas station, your local dentist office, your favorite restaurant, or your own small business.

Our financial system operates 100% on trust. If it crashed and there were no dollars available, could we continue to operate on that same trust? Could we just keep making an effort to make sure that everyone is taken care of and has what they need? Wouldn’t we be surprised to discover that if the money went away or was cut sharply, all of the trust, the resources, the cooperation, and the willingness to help one another are still there and still exquisitely real?
