Paris Parallels

Isn’t it amazing how many similarities there are between the Paris attacks and the attacks of September 11th in the U.S.?

The alleged attackers in both scenarios came from Middle Eastern countries that the cabal has been wanting to take over – Iraq then, and Syria now.

The attacks weren’t even a few hours old when French President Hollande accused Syria of being involved. He sounded just like the Bush gang accusing Iraq of being involved in 9/11.

Someone very conveniently found the I.D. of one of the Paris attackers in the trash, just like someone found the I.D. of one of the men allegedly involved in the Trade Center bombings. Additional incriminating evidence of bombs and jackets have been found in other trash bins, making the whole thing look and sound so hokey.

Even before they found the I.D., police began going after people they said were involved in the attacks. How did they know who these people were? How did they identify them so quickly? Other murder cases languish for years, sometimes forever. It turns out, they had been watching some of the attackers for years, and then carefully looked away as the attackers planned and carried out their attacks. The same tactic was used in the U.S. around the 9/11 attacks.

I can’t help but think about the regular surveillance that goes on by U.S., British, and French authorities and how easy it would be for them to keep their finger on the pulse of what’s happening among the so-called terrorists. Using this ‘inside information,’ they could then use the old Rothschild habit of pretending to support both sides of a conflict in order to create a desired situation, and then betray the attackers by turning on them! Of course, the attackers usually end up dead once their usefulness has been exhausted so they can’t talk about who funded or supplied them.

All of France shut down, just as the U.S. did, on the basis of fear. Suddenly people are being checked at train stations, airports, and borders – a total invasion of privacy. Even more disturbing is the reappearance of closed borders, razor wire, and distrust. We didn’t see the borders close or razor wire here in the U.S., but we did see the distrust of anyone who looked like they were from the Middle East.

In Paris, there is a clear attitude of “stay in your house, stay out of the way, and don’t ask questions.” We’ve seen that here in the U.S. in both the Boston bombing, and after 9/11 when George Bush threatened everyone by saying we either had to be ‘with the government or against it’ – no room for anything in the middle that might question what just happened or why.

In the U.S. the sorely misnamed Patriot Act was rushed through after the 9/11 attacks. We’ll probably soon see what France will try to push through as part of their attack agenda…sigh…so tired of all the terrorism stuff. It’s like a never-ending game of cops and robbers. How long do we have to keep playing? I wish the government would grow up.

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!

Holding Fear and Facing Hopelessness

I have a little story to share. Years ago, when I first moved to Kalamazoo, I got a job at the Upjohn Company, a major pharmaceutical company. This was in the late 1980s or early 1990s and the first wave of “new age” thinking was moving slowly through corporations. I was not at Upjohn very long when I noticed that everyone had a very carefully upbeat tone of voice, attitude, and outlook. They chose their words with great consciousness, and admonished one another to think positively when someone spoke in a judgmental or negative way.

One day my boss asked me what I thought his future was within the company. My response was, “If the people of this company don’t drop all that positive crap and look at themselves honestly, there isn’t going to be a company. The world changes. Upjohn is not acknowledging change. I’ll give it five years at the most and if people don’t wake up, the company will go down, people will lose their jobs, and you’ll all be forced to be real.” Five years later, Upjohn, struggling  with rising costs and hopeful decisions, merged with Pharmacia. Two years after that, it split, part of the company going to Monsanto and the rest to Pfizer. Caught in the stress of all the job losses, changes, and new demands, my former Upjohn boss had a heart attack and died.

All of us want to think that the world is safe, that life is good, tomorrow will look at least somewhat like today, and that daily events will be manageable. However, this moment in time on this planet – specifically from 2014 to 2021 – is “crunch time.” This brief cycle of seven years is the change point that will set the tone and shape the events for the next couple hundred years. What we do or don’t do is critically important.

Do pay attention to what is happening in the world around you both far and near. Do not panic. Fear is one thing; panic is something else altogether.  Do not try to pretend that all is well when it is not; this is insanity. Some information is bound to make us fearful. That’s okay. It is normal to feel fear when scary things are threatening. To insist on avoiding truth because it makes you afraid is putting your head in the sand. You cannot use power wisely with your head in the sand.

Do go about your business with as much serenity as you can muster. Do not make decisions as if disaster had already struck, but do know what decisions you need to be ready to make. Have discussions with family and friends in which you come up with all sorts of questions about what you might have to face if… Talk about answers to these questions at another time. Create a small notebook containing the questions that are important to your survival along with a wide variety of answers for each question. Stress shuts off access to the thinking part of the brain and it is very difficult to come up with useful solutions when you are caught in the stress syndrome. You don’t want to be limited to knee-jerk, fight or flight reactions at the very moment you most need access to open, out-of-the-box possibilities.

Do have a few essential supplies on hand and do not shop on a “just in time” basis. Neither should you spend the last dime of your savings buying things you think might save you. Be sensible. Part of that notebook mentioned above should contain lists of what you have on hand for emergencies and where these items are kept.

Do stay in good physical shape so that stress does not overcome you. Do not avoid talking with family and friends about what may happen; you need to be in alignment with your people if trouble should arise.

Do learn to be comfortable with paradox. Do not insist on being one-sided in your approach to life or you will create trouble for yourself and be unprepared for a lot of things. Holding paradox means holding opposing views or a multiplicity of views and being consciously flexible enough to choose what is appropriate at any given moment.

An example of a set of paradoxical positions is knowing that war is coming, loving your homeland, holding a vision of light for all people, preparing to leave your home if necessary, taking time to learn and understand the dynamics of why you are being attacked, planting a garden as if you weren’t going anywhere, and celebrating a child’s birthday as if all is well. Another set of paradoxical positions might be knowing that the economy is unsustainable or doomed to collapse, investing in a company you truly believe in, setting aside money in both savings and alternative forms of currency, putting a child through college knowing that it is preparing him or her  for an economy that probably won’t be there, helping people financially whenever you can, and improving your own skills so you can get a raise or make more money.

Do not insist that people say only what is positive. This is immature thinking and not helpful in the long run. Do insist on truth, even if it scares you. To hold fear and face hopelessness while remaining alert, aware, and informed is a challenge for even a mature consciousness. Take on that challenge. To stay alert and act wisely in the face of fear is to force that fear into the service of wisdom and power. Each of us has an immense amount of power. Do not shut it down because things are not as you wish.

Some Things Never Change

In the 13th century, the Crusades were called and organized by the very powerful Catholic Church as a vicious persecution of ordinary people who had different beliefs. “Their choice was either to recant or die. Initially none recanted, and …on the feast day of Saint Mary Magdalene…a huge fire was prepared. While it blazed and roared, the prisoners were brought out before it and more than one hundred and forty of these heretical perfecti (priests of the persecuted belief system) were flung thereon at one time….The following year…more than 400 perfecti, both men and women, were burnt on a gigantic bonfire.”             from “The Master Game” by Graham Hancock and Robert Bauval

Last week, in the city of Odessa in Ukraine, dozens of people occupying the Trade Unions House in protest against the US-backed regime change were burned to death when “Neo-Nazi mobs loyal to the unelected regime now occupying Kiev” set the building on fire, trapping those inside.              from NSNBC.me, “Odessa Massacre Pushes Ukraine to the Edge” May 3, 2014

 

CNN and the 2014 Winter Olympics

I don’t listen to CNN very often, and when I do I am always dismayed. Their reports of the opening of the Olympic games in Sochi was truly saddening. I hope no one in Russia or elsewhere in the world was taking the CNN reports to heart. Everything in it was designed to be a subtle insult to Russia, from the disgusted tone of voice describing the accommodations, to the ‘I-told-you-so’ attitude in their report about no Americans being there other than immediate family and friends of the athletes who had to be there.

I have to ask, “Do you really believe you appeal to anyone who thinks for themselves, anyone with an education, or who cares about other people across the world?” If you represent anyone at all, it would have to be the lowest common denominator in society.  I’m sorry CNN, but you don’t represent me or my views – or the views of anyone I know – at all. You are an embarrassment to us all.

Marginalizing the Cabal

I was reading some financial reports from investment managers and listening to the news, and then feeling generally worried about what was brewing in the world. My mind was flitting here and there, thinking about the hidden people who were running our government, controlling our news and our money, and who seem bent on causing suffering, pain, and death while also destroying our constitution.

After a few moments of this, I began to reflect on my own work, “If only I could get people to awaken, to shift their consciousness, and develop a bit of power, I might be able to teach them to see what is happening around them…to develop some insight…some wisdom…”

The feeling that came with this was of a need to hurry, to reach more people. I thought about the past 30-some years of effort to teach people about the mind, about how consciousness works, and how mind and consciousness create the body and physical reality. I thought about the New Age movement and how it had been ridiculed, laughed at, and marginalized.

Suddenly there was an explosion of awareness in my mind! It was a shift to the awareness of millions of people who were quietly awake and watching the goings-on in the world, and the few thousand – perhaps only a few hundred – who were putting out a barrage of fear-inducing news from their bully-pulpit. Those few were the marginal ones! They were hoping against hope and betting with all their petty might that the vast majority would never see through the smoke they were producing! They were praying the majority would never recognize their own power or realize who was marginal and who really had all the numbers and the power.

The cabal is marginal, not us!!

A saying or quote I have read from time to time, said by Mayer Rothschild, goes something like this, “Give me control of a country’s money supply and I care not who runs the government.”

But I say, “Give me control over consciousness and I care not who runs the money system.”
