Media, Truth, and Perception

There have been a number of people asking me what sources I use for my information. The latest was Janet, so I decided to answer in a post.

When it comes to television, I watch it rarely, maybe once every couple of months. When I do, I watch Link TV with Amy Goodman. The rest of TV has been a wasteland for a long time and network TV will probably never fulfill the promise of its potential to develop and educate us.

Regarding newspapers, the mainstream newspaper I still read most often is the New York Times – mostly to get a good feel for the propaganda being perpetrated on the U.S. The NYT seems to have suddenly tempered some of their reporting a tiny bit since the election, but is still very biased and still failing to report all of what is going on in a balanced way. As for radio, I no longer listen to radio or NPR at all – most of that stuff is milktoast.

A side note… Since I travel to the east coast a fair amount, it is clear to me that the people in Washington DC and New York – all of whom have been lost in some very comfortable illusions for a long time – are about to experience a taste of what Detroit experienced when the Big 3 automakers suddenly found themselves ousted by Japanese carmakers…uncertainty, loss of income, abrupt expulsion from the illusion of security, a total paradigm shift, and a feeling of their world being turned upside down. My point in mentioning this is that all of the mainstream media has been totally controlled by the people in Washington DC and New York.

To get an idea of what is really going on and how people think and feel outside of DC, New York, and the U.S., I visit sites like NSNBC (my favorite), InfoWars, DrudgeReport, Breitbart, Truthdig, ZeroHedge, RealistNews, NewEasternOutlook, Xinhua News Agency, Jon Rappaport, RT News, Veterans Today, Washington’s Blog, Gmail News, French news, English news, Russian news, and a number of sites that are not well known at all but still provide a serious context for what is happening in the world around us.

I think it would be important to say that I am not looking for “the truth” from any of these sources. I am looking at the consciousness and assessing the language that is represented by each of these outlets. I then put together a picture for myself of what people are saying, thinking, and doing here and there. I weigh all of this along with what my own inner knowing is telling me, and out of this emerges a picture of what might be called “What is.”

This picture of ‘what is’ gets sifted, sorted, added to, subtracted from, dumped, retrieved, tweaked, and re-shaped again and again over the ensuing days and weeks, eventually resulting in something much broader and deeper than any media outlet could ever present. It allows me to see what is happening and to examine all of the factors that are in play at any given time.  In other words, “the truth” is something I discern for myself, and I am never in a hurry to declare what that truth is. What most people think is true, is usually just a momentary snapshot of where they are pointing their perception and attention.

9 Guidelines to Use When Navigating the Alternative News

This started out as a reply to Tom Van Berckel, but became an entire blog. Thanks for the inspiration, Tom! And thanks for the compliment.

You aren’t the only one who gets confused when trying to figure out what to believe or who to listen to when wading through the ocean of alternative news. In my experience, and from conversations with many others, it takes at least a couple of years to learn to navigate that ocean and develop the capacity to put together a realistic picture of what’s going on out there. Along the way you discover several things that really have more to do with consciousness than anything else.

#1 – everyone has their own point of view and whether we think their views are right or wrong is somewhat irrelevant. Their point of view tells us where they are at with their perception, NOT where we should be at with ours! We each NEED our own point of view because that is the center point from which we communicate, learn, change, and grow.

#2 – we live in a consensus reality system – but that consensus is VERY loose. In my view, it is amazing that it holds together at all given the huge diversity of beliefs, experience, and perception that exist here. It is only because of our tolerance (unspoken) for one another, and our gratitude (unacknowledged) for their willingness (unconscious) to help hold it all together, that we are able to continue with the reality.

#3 – the idea of “proof” is useless. Even the best of scientists rarely think in terms of “proof.” They say, “This is what most of us agree on at the moment,” and they know that new insights and information will eventually go beyond the current agreement. My own stand is that there is no proof, there is only what we each experience, and each of us is responsible for assessing that experience from moment to moment and responding to it wisely and well. For most of us who are trying to wade through the huge amounts of alternative news, a good rule of thumb for judging any news is that the reporter should at least have some evidence to show, and when they have finished offering evidence, they should make it clear when they are switching to their own interpretation of that evidence.

#4 – you will resonate deeply in your gut, your heart, and your mind when you see or read news that is true and important for YOU to know. Not all news is relevant to all people.

#5 – listen to what people say, but watch carefully what they do. Keep a notebook handy in which you jot down lists, or create a folder on your computer in which you save speeches of key promises and predictions that people make. Then pay attention to whether they do what they said they would do, or how they behave when the prediction doesn’t come true. A few people will complain that this is too much work, but this is the burden of being a real citizen. We are where we are in this country because the hens have been selling eggs AND fresh chicken to the fox – and no one is paying attention!

#6 – find news sources that do a fairly good job of synthesizing lots of information and presenting a well-thought-out view of the big picture, or that consistently present smaller slices of information in a clear and honest way. The task here is to eventually find news sources you trust and that you can return to again and again because their information is always presented in a straightforward,  thoughtful way that makes you think.

#7 – learn to discern the difference between sources that sometimes get excited or upset about something, those who are continually outraged and spouting off about it, or those that are always trying to incite fear and dread. It’s like the difference between fresh milk (news), sour milk (news with an attitude), and fermented milk (news with a hidden agenda). In each case it’s milk, but you will respond differently to each.

#8 – you have a right to be interested in some things and not others. Follow the threads of conversation and information that you find interesting, and let yourself become knowledgeable and aware in the areas that you are interested in. Some people love politics, others love to read about the economy, some are only interested in technology, or science, or war, or psychology. Some follow music closely, or entertainment, or sports. So follow your nose, consuming information and arguments about the things that interest you, and occasionally graze in other pastures that offer other topics.

#9 – as for “truth,” there is only one unchanging and reliable truth – and that is that everything in existence is made of an intelligent Light that we call God, or Source, or The Universe, or whatever. All the stuff that emerges from that Light is temporary, which is why we say it is an illusion. It’s really not an illusion, it’s just temporary in the sense that it is not eternal and forever unchanging like that Light is. But you can damn well count on having a sore foot if you drop a brick on it. You can’t just blow that off as “illusion.” The truth is that it hurts!

In closing…we are in the middle of a paradigm shift of global proportions. A paradigm shift is a change in consciousness. If you are going to make that shift along with everyone else, you have to take responsibility for what you feed that consciousness and what you do with that consciousness. We are moving out of the paradigm of one-size-fits-all-and-one-story-informs-all. How you assemble the world is up to you!

Mainstream News and Thinking For Yourself

People have forgotten how to think for themselves. Are you one of them?  You are if you still watch and listen to mainstream news. Mainstream news is little more than baby pablum put together and spoon fed to you in nice, neat sound bites to make sure you never get the whole truth. Mainstream news is useful for only one thing – to get an idea of what the people in power want you to focus your attention on. It doesn’t matter whether it is truthful or not. It doesn’t matter that it is shallow or heavily biased. It doesn’t matter that the entire background and much of the story is missing. It doesn’t matter whether you believe it or not. It only matters that you spend your precious consciousness focused on it because that means you’re NOT focused on anything else that might tell you the whole truth – or develop your ability to discern the truth for yourself.

In the same way that we now have to bag our own groceries, do our own bank deposits, pump our own gas, figure out our own healing programs, and put together our own music, we now have to put together our own news. You have to do your homework when it comes to the news. Look around. Dig for info. What shows up? What fits together?

There is a ton of misinformation, bias, disinformation, nonsense, fear, propaganda, and crap out there. There have been plenty of times I threw my hands in the air and thought, “This is ridiculous! Everything I read or watch contradicts the thing I just finished reading or watching.” But learning how to put the news together is like anything else, you have to start somewhere. You will pass through stages.

The first stage is usually shock. You think the majority of what you are reading and hearing can’t possibly be true.

The next stage is overwhelm. Who and what should you believe? There is too much to even begin to assimilate a small amount of it. You drift from one extreme website or YouTube report to another.

The third stage is sorting.  Some of what you read begins to sink in and you begin to see certain themes again and again, read certain sources frequently, and develop a loose framework of ideas about what is actually happening in our world.

The fourth stage is arguing. You begin to get a fair but flawed picture of what is going on in the world and try to tell your family and friends – who are not really interested and who sometimes accuse you of becoming a conspiracy theorist. You back away in embarrassment and uncertainty.

The fifth stage is going deeper. Stinging from the criticism of family and friends, you expand your reading and listening in order to get a more accurate picture. You listen to all sides of a topic and a wide variety of reports – pro and con – about events taking place or continuing to unfold, and you begin to develop a well-rounded picture of what is going on in the world. You find yourself following certain threads more closely than others. You also begin to recognize who is grounded and accurate as well as who gets totally caught up in hyperbole and melodrama.

The sixth stage is discernment. By now you have a number of sources you go to regularly. You know how to listen to what is being said and what isn’t being said, and you are putting pieces together to make a fairly accurate assessment of the situation in many areas of life on our planet.

The last stage is thinking for yourself. At this stage, you have a sense of the history and background in the issues of our time. You know who is pushing one set of ideas and who is peddling a competing set of ideas, and you’re pretty clear about how each source is most likely to present the information at hand, what their positon and their biases are. You also know what your position and biases are as well. In other words, you have begun to know yourself, achieved the ability to see, hear, and think for yourself, assess what is likely to come down the pike, and to make appropriate decisions. Nothing is more critical for you in the development of your own consciousness!

Sasquatch

Someone sent me an article about Sasquatch and asked me to read it and let them know what I thought of it. I read it and thought it was a perfect example of the problem with so much “new age” media. So I decided to respond to it on my blog as well as to the individual who sent it. The article was about a gentleman in British Columbia who said he had established physical and telepathic communication with a Sasquatch elder. It was an interesting read, although quite cliché in its narrative.

If you would like to read the full article, click on this link… (I had to break up the link to get it to display properly, so you may have to put it back together to get it to work.)

ArcturianAscensionTools+%28Arcturian+Ascension+Tools%29

As for what I think about the article, the positives are:

  • I have every respect for people who are attempting to communicate with a life-form that is not part of everyday experience for others.
  • I know the message of encouragement to connect with Mother Earth is true and necessary.
  • The article contains a message of warning about the need to awaken and evolve toward peace or suffer the destruction of our world, a warning that I am very aware of already.
  • I know how reclusive the Sasquatch are and how resilient they are.
  • I know people who have been communicating with Sasquatch for some time, so the article is not totally out there in left field.

The negatives are:

  • Anyone who has experienced telepathy and then tried to write about it is forced to put it in their own words. This kind of translation is challenging, and inexperienced people usually do a poor job at best because they do not know how to separate the message received from their own already-existing beliefs. The translation ends up being full of the biases and beliefs of the author, and this article is no exception.
  • The grammar is atrociously bad! I know that not everyone has excellent writing skills, but it does not help to raise the level of discussion about these matters when the grammar is not even sixth grade level. People are barely willing to read anymore, and bad writing only makes reading more difficult. Worse, such bad writing is dismissed before what it says is even considered. If you don’t write well, find someone who does to correct what you put out there.
  • The use of singular verbs that are inconsistent with the plural nouns they refer to is maddening and creates a feeling of confusion in the reader. If you are going to put something out there for others to read, for god’s sake do some editing. Just because someone wrote it that way (poorly) doesn’t mean it has to be published that way (poorly).
  • The use of the made-up word “uncivilization” sounds like a modern and very current construction. The Sasquatch do not have much of a language and it is highly unlikely this word would fit the language skills of the Sasquatch, so the best we can say is that this is a good example of author bias. It does get the point across that someone – either the author or the Sasquatch – does not think we deserve to be called “civilized.”
  • The references to Atlantis and Mu are cliché and out of place. The author’s statements do not match what I have seen at all. (Not that I am an expert on either Atlantis or Mu, or the final arbiter of what went on back then.) Neither Atlantis nor Mu was destroyed because they were “bad.” They were simply located in low-lying areas that were inundated when the glaciers melted and the sea level rose over 350 feet in three distinct flooding episodes. All the stories about them being punished for having strayed from “divine law” are projections of current religious themes that we are caught in.
  • The photos or drawings inserted into the text of the article are completely inappropriate and take away from the seriousness the author seems to want to convey.
  • While there are very advanced beings from other dimensions and other star systems who work in teams to seed new worlds, the way this is often portrayed is inaccurate. This article offers one of those inaccurate portrayals.
  • I am very uncomfortable with people who use the concepts of punishment, war, and extraterrestrials to justify their beliefs, to frame their beliefs, or as reasons for us to do something different.
  • I am very suspect of people who project the concepts of God, devils, punishment, war, money, extraterrestrials, patriarchy, or even the supremacy of humanoids, etc. onto the rest of the cosmos. These are memes from our current, very primitive culture. We are in the habit of assuming that these concepts form the main framework of life in all places and all times. They are not, and thinking they are is cultural arrogance coupled with ignorance.
  • The entire article has the flavor of entertainment that is being used to get a personal message across, something common on the internet.
  • The title of the article, Arcturian Ascension Tools: Sasquatch, gives the impression that someone is trying to connect extraterrestrials to Sasquatch. It’s always possible that this is the desired goal, but in my small experience with extraterrestrials, they don’t need many tools, especially Sasquatch. They do have technology, but their main tool is consciousness and they use it to perfection.

In closing, I am very uncomfortable with writers who are unable to give the human race credit for anything. Thus, someone else created us, someone else cheated or manipulated us, someone else is responsible for keeping us down, and someone else will rescue us. This is crap. We are powerful beings who have made poor choices again and again. If we don’t take responsibility soon for what we’ve done, we will just blow out like a candle in the wind.

The gift of life has to be nurtured. No one owes us a life. The great freedom, which we refer to as free will, is to do whatever we want with the life we have. Life is meant to be enjoyed. It offers all kinds of beauty, feelings, experiences, pleasures, and surprises. But the law of life is, “Nurture life or die.” Our world is pretty far out on one of the limbs of the tree of life. One good storm and it’s over. The great freedom and largesse that comes to us with the gift of life is given to us without interference because the end result is guaranteed…Either figure out how to nurture life, or the civilization will collapse due to its own violence and stupidity, thus insuring that no really bad civilizations endure.

Snapshot

[This is longer than I like my posts to be, but I couldn’t make it any shorter. It is structured as one brief introductory paragraph and one long, run-on paragraph because I wanted the information in the long paragraph to engulf you without a break in the same way the world engulfs us all…without a break, without time off, and without the ability to take little bites in the form of separate sentences that allow us to grasp things in neatly segregated pieces that we never put together as a whole.]

When I give a talk somewhere, I am frequently surprised that so many people have no idea what is going on in the world. They can hardly believe some of the things I mention, and I can hardly believe they don’t know what I’m talking about. At a talk last June, I promised to put together a list of newspapers and websites that I read frequently. As I was putting the list together, I ended up reviewing what is happening in the world. That led to forgetting the list of links and news sources, and putting together a “snapshot” of what is going on at the moment. I think the reason people don’t know what is going on is because U.S. media is feeding them drivel in order to keep things under control. You have to go outside our media to get the truth…or at least a broader and deeper view.

There are wars raging across the northern tier of Africa, all the way around the eastern end of the Mediterranean, up into the Ukraine, and over into Afghanistan. All of these wars have been started by the U.S. in an attempt to keep Russia landlocked, cut off Russian pipelines, and encircle China in order to contain the once-sleeping giant. Russia is bombing the strongholds of the U.S.-created, U.S.-trained, and U.S-financed terrorist groups known variously as al Quaeda/al Nusrah/ISIS/ISIL/IS. Japan is arguing with Russia over the Kuril Islands to the north of Japan, and Taiwan is the subject of arguments between the U.S. and China to the south. There is a ferocious but hidden war going on within the U.S. to wrest control of the U.S. from those who have taken over our financial system, our legal system, and the republic itself. When the corrupt ones in the U.S. were in full control, the goal was to get control of poor Syria, kick out Assad, and put in a “democratic” puppet. Now that the corrupt ones are teetering, the good guys in the white hats have made deals with Russia, Iran, and Iraq to make sure Assad stays, which is why Russia is bombing the heck out of ISIS strongholds in Syria…and why the U.S. really can’t say much because if they do, they’ll expose the truth about the fact these are U.S.-backed terrorists doing U.S. dirty work. Brazil is reeling from the same kind of corruption that has taken over the United States. Venezuela and Spain are arguing between themselves, even as Venezuela is fighting within itself and assassinating grassroots leaders who try to improve life for all. Somalia continues its fight against al Shabaab while it tries to deal with refugees from Ethiopia. Ethiopia continues to struggle with Eritrea and is the source of the second biggest refugee crisis in Africa. Eritrea is struggling with itself, its poverty, its martyrs, and its requirement of unending education and then unending “service,” which never allows anyone to leave. “The unfortunate ones who try to escape are kidnapped, or deported, held for ransom, sold, or used as body parts and left in the desert.” Egypt has seen a drop in their foreign reserve financial accounts from $35.8 Billion down to $16.8 Billion, making it clear that tourists and investors don’t like revolution. Yemen is still bombing and being bombed, caught in the foibles of the West and its northern neighbor, Saudi Arabia. Jordan is in bed with the Israeli-U.S.-Turkey corrupt ones and is involved in training terrorists. Europe is being swamped with refugees from Syria, Iraq, Libya, and other countries in northern Africa who are trying to get away from the wars that have bombed them back to the Stone Age. An international court has declared that data mining by the NSA is illegal, thus closing off NSA access to information from U.S. and E.U. corporations. Mexico is struggling to retain at least a little of its power, quite a bit of which has been smuggled away by drug lords who control whole cities. Afghanistan was a major site of fighting until the U.S. pipeline went through in the south of the country. It seemed to move to the back burner, but has recently re-emerged because the problem of how to keep control of that pipeline out of the hands of the Taliban have come up again. China’s economy has lost 40% of its value since June. It is being slowly smothered by coal smog, and the Chinese are not sure what to do after vicious attacks that tried to explode their main financial supercomputer in Tianhe, a computer that is twice as fast as anything the U.S. has. Canada seems frozen in a position of subservience to the corruption in Washington DC and can’t admit that their involvement in current wars is in direct violation of their own national laws. Ditto for France. Israel-The-Paranoid continues to pull the strings in Washington DC, because the U.S. military is the major military arm of Netanyahu’s cabinet. Fighting may have slowed between North Sudan and South Sudan, which recently broke into two countries, but both are uneasy. Chad, Niger, and Nigeria continue to fight Boko Haram – another bunch of terrorists started, funded, and trained by the United States. Turkey continues to play monkey-in-the-middle between Russia, Israel, and the U.S., while all four countries continue to exploit the amazing fighting skills of the Kurds who usually get dumped once the fighting is over. Libya may never recover from the various factions now fighting for control within it. It, too, may as well be back in the Stone Age. Ukraine continues to fight, then smolder on the back burner, then fight, then smolder on the back burner, depending on whether or not the U.S. needs it as propaganda against Russia. Australia can’t seem to find itself or a humane position from which to operate and suffers from serious foot-in-mouth disease as it struggles with the fact that it is located within the Asian sphere of influence while strings are being pulled from yonder England. Japan is under the thumb of the U.S. and their Prime Minister Abe is one of our puppets. Their struggle to get free of this has been ongoing since their loss to us in WWII. There has been a serious financial war going on between East and West that centers around the price of oil and an attempt to sink the Russian economy, which is based heavily on oil. Stupidly, we put sanctions on Russia, which merely taught them to be more resourceful and more creative. Within the West itself another war unfolds between the Rockefeller camp and the Rothschild camp. The Rockefellers are losing, mostly because the Rothschilds are older and have more experience. They also have the good sense to read the writing on the wall and have learned over time to go along with big changes while watching for ways to re-establish control. The Rothschilds don’t waste time trying to win petty battles only to end up losing the war. I think it’s quite interesting that, 1. An article in an Iowa newspaper presents an amazing and coherent story containing considerable evidence, including dozens of photographs belonging to Otto Skorzeny, that Prescott Bush and his son, George Herbert Walker Bush, were originally Nazi operatives and George’s real name was George H. Scherff. 2. That many Nazis fled to South America and assumed new identities, and 3. The Bush family has purchased huge amounts of land in South America where they intend to run if things get difficult for them here. Is the Nazi history trying to repeat itself? The Israelis are doing the same thing to the Palestinians that was done to them by Hitler. How will we ever heal Israel when she has cast herself as the perpetual scapegoat child of Earth’s family? In Argentina they are still using the excuse of “no birth certificate or paperwork – no rights” to deny hundreds of thousands of people the right to education, medical care, and income-producing work. The fastest internet systems in the world are not to be found in the Americas – either north or south. Almost all are in Asia or Europe, which brings the question, why doesn’t the U.S. have decent internet? Are they afraid of what full connectivity would do? There is talk of the coming Balkanization of the United States – a breakup into half a dozen regions – which has been the fate of many places, especially in Eastern Europe, and now the Middle East and Africa. Why? Because a small regional power will not have the ability to challenge a one-world government. The U.S. will run out of money on November 5th of this year. There are serious droughts in Zambia and faltering efforts to keep what little electricity they have going. South Africa is having similar problems. The islands of Kiribati continue to sink slowly as the seas rise. Germany is making the same attempt to distract its citizens with sports and movie drivel as the U.S. does to its citizens. That may backfire as the Germans try to absorb 1.5 million refugees from everywhere who are hungry and tired and have no interest in drivel. And if you have any doubt that Americans are being fed a lot of belly-button gazing, narcissistic crap designed to keep us distracted and dumbed down about what is happening, take a quick look at this website!!:

The great paradox about this age of perfect communication, of course, is that nobody knows anything about what’s going on.” – Wolcott Gibbs, from Backward Ran Sentences, written in 1941.

“The Grid”

Back in early 2015, I kept picking up something unusual happening in October 2015. I am a consultant for a number of people who have a great deal of money, and in doing some work for them, I kept seeing something that I could not identify other than that it was big and would affect everyone.

I continued to keep my eye out for pieces of additional information that might come to me. On June 14, 2015, one of my Washington DC clients asked what I sensed for the second half of the year. I said I was picking up things that were basically good, although there were rumblings in the financial markets, and something else that kept coming up that I hadn’t been able to get many details about other than it “started in August, became bigger in September, and engulfed the world by October…something that turned the applecart over.”

Because of my clairvoyance, I have an 8-track mind and I watch information coming in on many mental screens at all times. One day in late July I was doing something in the office when one of my “screens” opened up. I glanced at it, thought, “Oh, that’s the October problem,” and went back to what I was doing. A second later I was electrified and thought, “Hey! That was… what was that???” But I could not remember what I had seen.

I gave myself directions to see that screen open again, and about four days later the same thing happened. This time I managed to get two words, “the grid.” I wasn’t sure if that meant the electrical grid, the communications grid, the financial grid, or some other grid.

I then gave myself directions to gather more information about what was happening with the grid, and about two weeks later a piece came to me that “the grid” referred to the internet. I had the question in my mind, “Is the internet going to go down?” A response came… “The internet will not so much “go” down as much as it will be “taken” down.

When I asked “Why?” the answer came back, “To stop the free-fall.” I then had a picture of computers being stopped because if they had been allowed to keep going, the banks would be empty and everyone would be bankrupt. By shutting down the whole system, the wealth of a few would be preserved and the authorities could then say, “Well, we had this problem, but everything is now okay. We just need to sort things out and get back online and everything will be fine.”

But everything was not fine. It was chaos.

I received a video link yesterday. Today I clicked on it and found it to be a news report from a place called Real News. It was an analysis of a 10-part television series called Mr. Robot, which has evidently been shown on national TV over the summer. It concluded with the 10th episode, which spelled out the exact scenario I’ve been seeing – the grid goes down and our financial system is destroyed. Here is the link:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b015nM4GPK4

The newsman observed something I have heard many times before, that the Cabal LOVES to warn us of what is going to happen next in our world by making a movie full of ‘hidden information’ about the future. He then went on to point out what the TV movie series was saying – or warning us about – and it is exactly what I’ve been seeing…with a little more detail added.

In the television series, a group of hackers were hired to insert a virus into the banking system. This would begin September 23 and would eventually collapse the system everywhere – Europe and China included. September 23 is 2 ½ weeks away. That doesn’t leave much time to prepare, should the scenario be accurate.

The government is in complete control of the financial system and if the financial system collapses, the government is going to collapse with it. The government cannot afford to let the financial system go down because it knows that doing so will be the end of government. Thus, it would seem they would go to extreme lengths to keep the system from collapsing.

However, if I assume that the predictions offered by the Mr. Robot TV series are true and I look at the situation from an intuitive point of view, it appears that the government is responsible for inserting the virus. This is somewhat confusing. Why would they engineer a financial collapse? And then shut down the internet?

The answer might be just what I saw – so they would be able to claim that the internet is to blame, that the financial system is still viable, and the government is still legitimate. They would claim that we just have to sort out the mess and carry on with life as usual…and no one would ever know the truth about why it happened, what went on in the background, or what was really lost.

First, the U.S. is bankrupt. Could they be trying to hide this fact?

Second, besides the bankruptcy, there have been more and more exposures of corruption, and the people who have been directly involved in the corruption are under tremendous pressure. If the truth came out, it would destroy them and the government. Would destroying the financial system help cover this fact?

Third, now that all of the bankers who could point fingers and blame anyone have been murdered over the past three years, is the government going to destroy the computers – i.e. burn the books – that hold all the evidence of illegal transfers and payoffs, and that also reveal that they’re bankrupt?

Ruining the banking system using a virus is a very selective hack. In the TV series, the whole internet doesn’t go down, just the banking does. How convenient for the government, which needs to keep the drama going! If we can all just be kept occupied with Facebook and texting, we’ll be too distracted to do anything else – like think clearly or act with intention.

Fourth, looking at the whole thing from another point of view, it looks a lot like the September 11th bombing of the Trade Center buildings in New York in 2001. That was a massive gold heist of money that had been moved into the Trade Center in order to begin shipping it back to the East on September 12, 2001. We all know what happened. The gold disappeared. The take down of the internet/banking system may be another situation just like the Trade Center. Neil Keenan and Group K have just announced what appears to be a deal with the UK in which the Global Accounts are now being set up in several locations. According to Neil, $1.7 trillion in gold has already been deposited and more is on the way. What happens to the records of that gold if the financial system gets a virus and collapses? The take down of the internet or the banking system sets the stage for the gold to disappear and the elite to act as if there never was any gold in the first place.

Fifth, with all of the intelligence and tracking capabilities of the CIA and Mossad, how was it that Keenan was allowed to remain alive? Was it because they let him do all the heavy work of finding the gold, convincing the elders that it would be used to rebuild the Earth, and get the gold shipped into the hands of the Western bankers – who already had plans to insert a virus into the banking system computers and make the money disappear? Or maybe to make the old system disappear and when the internet comes back on line to fill out their balance sheets with numbers from the gold Keenan sent them, as if nothing was ever wrong in the first place? In Neil’s latest blog post, he says point blank that London is the financial center of the corruption…and in the same post announce that he has made a deal with the UK!!

In concluding, it is not clear whether the grid would be taken down more because the Cabal doesn’t want the Global Accounts to be available to rebuild the world…or because they just want the gold to replenish their own coffers…or because they are trying to avoid admitting that they cannot pay China…or because they want to screw Russia…or whether they really just want to make sure the extent of their corruption and bankruptcy will never be known. If they can hide the extent of their corruption and bankruptcy, AND get their hands on more gold, they have a chance of maintaining their power and keeping control over everything.

All of this really comes down to a massive attack on Russia and China because they hold billions – no, trillions – of dollars in U.S. currency. If a bad-boy virus wipes out our system of currency, then…oops! It’s not the government’s fault! Somebody did it to us, and we’re trying hard to fix it, but it just isn’t fixable, so we’ll just have to start over…unless…you have records, Mr. China? Oh! What’s that you say? You’re having difficulty with your computers too?! My, my! I guess we’ll all have to start over. Darn. That’s too bad.

And just like the Robes said, the corporate dinosaurs would go after one another and take each other out in a fierce competition to be able to say, “I rule the world!!!” I always expected this to be corporations like General Motors, or the coal companies vs. the solar companies. But now I’m realizing that it could very well mean the Corporation of the United States and the other countries who have incorporated or at least adopted capitalism. If those nation-state structures are now in a battle to the death, their death throes will shake us all.

Of course, if we could wake up and take charge of things, we might begin to understand the game, realize that we’re the pawns providing the pinball drama that entertains the big players as they pull the levers and watch the chaos created by their games. Perhaps it is time for us to learn to shake or slant the table to make things go the way we want them to go. We might discover our power and learn to use it wisely and well.

Community vs. Connection

There is a great deal of talk among New Age people about ‘community.’ I have a little experience with this idea of creating a place where like-minded people could come together and live in peace and harmony. I’ve been involved in several attempts to establish community. What I learned from each attempt has been very instructive. I can sum it up in a few sentences.

The people who want community are often people who want to escape from the pressures of everyday reality. They want to drift into a situation where all is beautiful and light. It takes a great deal of money and work to run a community, but these are precisely the things most people are running away from. They want a boss or leader to put the community together – and they will participate. However, they will also resist in the way that they have always resisted authority. Living with other people is stressful and the old saying, “Wherever you go, there YOU are,” is doubly true in community. Squabbles, misunderstandings, and scapegoats are everywhere. I have loved the people who came to be part of our small attempts at community. Even though the community didn’t last, these were important steps on the road to wisdom, and I am very grateful for that.

In a conversation with a friend the other day, he commented that more and more people are living alone. I have noticed the same thing. We talk about community…but in actual practice we are pulling away from one another in many ways. No one wants to be under anyone else’s thumb, or even their roof. We don’t want to be stuck with someone’s mess, their spending habits, their diet, their TV programs, their snoring, or their bad moods.

As this pulling away continues, our need for connection intensifies – which is why the smartphone and social media have been so successful. I’ve heard a number of people decry the direction we are moving in as a culture, and I can’t help but think we are exactly where we need to be. In any healthy healing process it is necessary to back away a bit and get a new perspective. The gurus call it detachment. We have all backed away from one another, but we’re still connected…and that may have to be enough for now as we feel our way along to a new way of seeing and being in the world.
