It’s Not About the Money, a Guest Post from Michael Brine, by Linda Schurman

From Michael Brine, Valued Contributor at NAtP

“Someday after we have mastered
The winds, the waves, the tides, and gravity,
We shall harness the energies of Love.
Then, for the second time in the
History of the world, humankind
Will have discovered fire.”

~Teilhard de Chardin [1881-1955]

A dear astrologer friend of mine, who lives in a rural community in Upper New York State with her husband, recently wrote to me. Thank you Linda for these words that come from the heart and carry so much wisdom.

“The real issue, as I see it, is not about money. It is about the direction humanity needs to take so that we can operate sustainably on planet earth, in harmony with nature and co-operatively with each other. In order to do this, we must give up the notion of “endless” expansion and consumption and instead manage ourselves like adults who have the capacity to live responsibly, voluntarily limiting our populations, raising our food with care, and sharing prosperity in a more egalitarian way. All people are simply not equal in their abilities and talents, but must be honoured with a life of dignity and given a place in the scheme of things. The gigantic disparity between rich and poor in the world only leads to genocides, wars, plagues and eventually, the failure of civilization itself.

Let us all work together with whatever talents we have to co-create something much greater than anything dreamed of before. This is my hope and inspiration.”

On the Feminine Role in the New World, Quoted from the book: “Servers of the Divine Plan”

“This book is dedicated to all those intrepid souls who have sacrificed their exalted spiritual freedom in voluntary service to humanity and planet earth at this time of greatest need.”

Quoted from: Servers of the Divine Plan, Pg. 49

“It is evident that there has been an extreme patriarchal imbalance upon Earth for a very long time. The innate creative and intuitive qualities of the feminine spirit have been long-feared by distorted male perception, and as a result women have been repressed, dominated and persecuted throughout history. In order to bring equilibrium in a world that has known so much control by the male force, the majority of Server-souls upon Earth at this time have chosen to incarnate in female bodies. AS agents of change, these valiant envoys of the New Spirit bring to the planet a very high concentration of feminine power that will presently resolve the patriarchal problem upon Earth once and for all, restoring much needed balance and harmony that will benefit everyone in the New World, both women AND men. During the time leading up to the Great Transition, however, and since male authority is still presently the controlling global power, female Servers will continue to experience something of the anguish of the collective persecution endured by so many women over the ages. Nonetheless, they are assured that their long awaited time of liberation and victory is today at hand.”




Be Inspired All Year

I envy nature photographers—their eye for beauty and that their job is taking gorgeous pictures. My mom gifts me a wall calendar every year that is filled with breathtaking photos from nature and inspirational quotes from the Bible. Every time I look at it, it is a gift from the hearts of the manufacturer and my mom.

I think the most beautiful American calendar, though, is the one published every year by the Self-Realization Fellowship, which was founded by Paramahansa Yogananda soon after he came to America in 1920 (to share his timeless teachings on India’s ancient practices: the philosophy of Yoga and its tradition of meditation. He blended teachings of the East with the teachings of Jesus Christ from the New Testament, to demonstrate that God’s Love is the basis of everyone and everything.)

The SRF’s annual calendar is a desktop version; each page is seven inches by nine inches, with the date-pages divided into seven days. Each week’s page is paired with a beautiful photograph from nature and sayings from the writings of Paramahansa Yogananda. The quotation for the cover picture (shown above) is:

“The scenery of mountains painted on the ever-changing azure canvas of the sky, the mysterious mechanism of the human body, the rose, the green grass carpet, the magnanimity of souls, the loftiness of minds, the depth of Love—all these things remind us of a God who is beautiful and noble.” ~P.Y.

Another saying paired with a scene of wildflowers in California is:

“Underlying all life is the silent voice of God, ever calling to us through flowers, through scriptures, and through our conscience—through all things that are beautiful and that make life worth living.” ~P.Y.

There is something special about this calendar. As I write appointments or notes on the pages next to striking photographs and the wisdom of P.Y., things seem quieter, deeper, more real—as though touching the pages somehow links me with universal peace. I can’t think of a better gift to give to ourselves or those we love—something for the soul, for hope, for encouragement in these difficult times.

Even though he crossed to the other side in 1952, Paramahansa Yogananda still changes lives with his endearing book, AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A YOGI, and with the INNER REFLECTIONS calendar. The calendar costs $13.95 (a true bargain) and can be purchased at bookstores, and from the Self-Realization Fellowship at (323) 225-2471 or at the link above.

How Can We Help the Hopi People? A Guest Post by Thomas O. Mills

By Thomas O. Mills
tmills1870@aol.comAuthor: The Book of Truth and Stonehenge, If This Was East

I am sometimes asked, “How can we help the Hopi People?” Having lived with the Hopi for a number of years, I can assure you that they do not need our help. They have been trying to help us, all four races of man, black, yellow, red, and white, from the beginning of time.The Hopi society is not based on money, owning property or collecting things. Green fields, rain, traditional ceremonies and laughter are all that they really need. Whenever electricity, running water, heaters, televisions, automobiles, freezers, or jobs enter the villages, only problems arise. How do I pay the bills for these things? I have ceremonial obligations and crops to plant; how can I work five days a week? How can they expect me to devote all my time for money? I never needed money before; why do I need it now? These are just some of the things I have heard on the reservation. An old Hopi joke is: Before the white man came all I did was farm, hunt, and take part
in my ceremonies. Now I have to work, to make money, so I can farm, hunt, and take part in my ceremonies.

I have always been amazed at how eager a true Hopi is willing to fast, pray, and devote his time for the wellbeing of all four races of man, no matter how terrible these races have treated the Hopi. It is still remembered how Kit Carson road up to an old unarmed Hopi man planting his crop and shot him in the head for no reason. We name cities, streets and mountains after Carson, and the Hopi lost one of their ceremonial leaders and had to eliminate the ceremony he was responsible for. Continue reading

A Time for Everything Under Heaven

I was watching PBS tonight and I think it was Pete Seeger singing, ‘To Everything There Is a Season, Turn, Turn, Turn.’ He put the words from Ecclesiastes to music in 1959 and it’s lovely. The Byrds made the song popular in the 60s—theirs is the version I still hear in my head.

Below are the lyrics, a message I wish I had better understood in my teens and twenties: Life is not always light or always dark—always good or always bad. We live in a rhythm of stages and cycles and it is so worth it—the living, I mean. ‘There is a time to gain, and a time to lose.’ This has been our collective time to lose; it’s vitally important to remember that we grow our wisdom from the things that hurt the most.

Here’s Ecclesiastes, where this is expressed so beautifully:

“To everything – turn, turn, turn
There is a season – turn, turn, turn
And a time for every purpose under heaven

A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap
A time to kill, a time to heal
A time to laugh, a time to weep

To everything – turn, turn, turn
There is a season – turn, turn, turn
And a time for every purpose under heaven

A time to build up, a time to break down
A time to dance, a time to mourn
A time to cast away stones
A time to gather stones together

To everything – turn, turn, turn
There is a season – turn, turn, turn
And a time for every purpose under heaven

A time of war, a time of peace
A time of love, a time of hate
A time you may embrace
A time to refrain from embracing

To everything – turn, turn, turn
There is a season – turn, turn, turn
And a time for every purpose under heaven

A time to gain, a time to lose
A time to rend, a time to sew
A time to love, a time to hate
A time of peace, I swear it’s not too late!

The Final Freedoms and a Comment by Michael Brine, A Guest Post

To Notes Along the Path’s readers: I recently received an extensive email from Robert Landbeck, email:, regarding a book entitled The Final Freedoms; he left this link:

I was struck by the introductory message, but found it intellectually demanding, so I asked my online buddy, Michael Brine, to read it and tell me what he thought. His thoughts are below the quoted material. I also found the information that follows from Klatu, which gave a summary of the book and helped me to better understand the intention of the writer.

Quoted from the second website, written by Klatu, (dedicated to the future of our planet and mankind):

“Almost four years ago, a manuscript started circulating on the web titled, The Final Freedoms. The ideas contained within it are profound and new not just in the public domain but to history itself, and however implausible this may sound to the modern mind, this small work may hold the potential for changing the very course of human history. The reason for such an audacious statement becomes self-evident to those who take the time to fully explore its insights.

Using a synthesis of scriptural material from the Old and New Testaments, the Apocrypha, The Dead Sea Scrolls, The Nag Hammadi Library and some of the world’s great poetry, it describes and teaches a single moral LAW, a single moral principle offering the promise of its own proof; one in which the reality of God responds to an act of perfect faith with a direct, individual intervention into the natural world; correcting human nature by a change in natural law, altering biology, consciousness and human ethical perception beyond all natural evolutionary boundaries. Intended to be understood metaphorically, where ‘death’ is ignorance and ‘Life’ is knowledge, this experience, personal encounter and liberation by transcendent power and moral purpose is the ‘Resurrection,’ the justification of faith and foundation of righteousness.

Trials of this new teaching are under way in several countries. For those individual who can set their sights and measure progress above the existing political status quo, who are able to think for themselves and imagine outside the historical cultural box, who are willing to learn something new and stand against the stream of fashionable thought and spin, an intellectual and moral revolution has already started with the most potent Non Violent Direct Action any human being can take for peace, justice, change and progress. Here is a link to the book itself, which is free to download at:”

By Michael Brine, A Response to a Robert Landbeck Email

I was very impressed with this. One thing they should do is to make clear at the
beginning that in talking about ‘religion’ they are talking about the three Abraham based religions–Islam, Judaism and Christianity–which are Western-based. In fairness, the more Eastern religions are not so much religions in the accepted sense of the word but more spiritually-based, should I say, philosophies? They are also much more tolerant of each other and share by gathering together and sharing feelings/thoughts.

I experienced this when I lived in Malaysia in the late 1950s. A friend and I would go down to the Buddhist temple about once a week and sit on the porch of the head monk–The Venerable Dhamananda–originally from Ceylon, now Sri Lanka, and explore our insights in a most tolerant and respectful way. At that time, I was a member of the Theosophical Society founded by a woman named Madam Blavatsky (around 1875).

I applaud the recognition (by the author of The Final Freedoms) that Emperor Constantine’s influence in all of this was politically based. I feel this is a most important element and dove tails with what Anastasia ( has told us and the fact that the fire that destroyed the Library at Alexandria was no accident, but effectively destroyed all our true past history which had been preserved there on parchments, scrolls and other recording elements used in earlier times.

There was also a reference to ‘Understanding the Natural World,’ which I liked, but the
email contained no mention that we are a part of this ‘natural world’ and not separate from it. Perhaps the book itself explains more. In this, of course, I am also focusing on the cyclic element that all nature passes through and the population explosio occurring at this time. Both elements are not considered, most likely because the consequences of what the Mayans call the “End Times” are hard to handle.

The email on ‘Final Freedoms’ also talked about a ‘direct intervention in the natural
world to create a new moral reality’ — not quite sure what they mean by this. To interfere or try to interfere with Nature will cause our collective downfall and to use the word “morality” smacks of a religious influence, which, of course it may be. Perhaps they mean a divine intervention.

They make a statement that, “The world is literally dying for want of new direction
and this teaching may hold both the potential and means for change,” etc. Again as I have said so often, ‘You cannot build a new building on a rotten foundation, so there must first be a Cleansing before the rebuilding.’ It is this, in my opinion, we are seeing and will witness more dramatically in the immediate days ahead. Increasing weather anomalies, earthquakes, and other upheavals would appear to be increasing at a substantial rate–wouldn’t you agree?

On health issues, I applaud their recognition that by building up our immune system we can stay healthy way beyond what we are witnessing within our societies at the
present time. Sadly, the email mentions building up the immune system, without
focusing on the true CAUSE of our ill health. This ‘cure’ mentality is good for the pharmaceuticals and the Allopathic doctors, but not for us as a whole. “There’s none so blind as those who don’t want to see.”

Regarding ‘war,’ et al, I have always felt that if we can get rid of the lines on a map
that we call countries, that so effectively divide us from each other, and learn to work together as in communities, this would create respect and healing between our different races. As with dogs we are all one humanity, just different breeds! 🙂

When we use this reference to our “Oneness” do we really understand this? All life, I repeat, ALL life, is One in this sense. The energy that resides within us is the same energy that resides in ALL things whether in humans, dogs, trees, fish, water, wind or even a stone. If the energy stops passing through it that form, whatever it is, it no longer exists.

One final comment that is very important is that we must stop these sickening divisional attitudes of the superiority of men over women! We see this especially within
the more extreme Islamic faiths but it is also true within our own culture also–maybe a bit more subtle–but it is there.

In closing, may I recommend a web site that is very profound and visionary: Start with the film; then go to the interviews with Doctor Neruda found on the left hand side of the screen. Then check out the teachings of the Wingmakers, especially the “Lyricus” teachings. Yes, there is a lot to see on this site but I feel the time taken to ingest its essence will more than compensate for the
time taken. Good luck!

An Answer to Our Collective Prayer, A Guest Post by Sharie from Sending Joy

Happiness is Essential by Sharie of Sending Joy

“I want to see the world through God’s eyes today.”

There is only one way to see the world and still be at peace.  That is through the eyes of God. Whenever we can’t understand what we see or the reason we are having a particular experience, let’s not try to figure it out. We can’t.  Our job is to simply be still and pray, “God let me see this through your eyes.” And peace will flood through us and we will know that beneath the devastation and beyond the insanity, there is a place where all is well.

No matter how terrible things look, there are always underlying miracles and blessings working to make corrections. Those miracles are God’s gifts and we must allow them and trust in them, be grateful for them and surrender everything else. In this way, are we now an instrument of peace, a channel for healing and a part of the solution.

One of the biggest mistakes we make is not recognizing our part in the healing of the world. We may think we want to be happy, but if we’re not it isn’t hurting anything. The fact is our happiness is essential to God’s Plan for our healing and the world’s.

May you walk in the world today with a happy heart and God’s vision for seeing all things through His eyes.

Egyptian Murals Seen From the Perspective of the Hopi Creation Story, A Guest Post by Thomas O. Mills

A Universal Language That Time and Scholars Cannot Change
By Thomas O. Mills
Author of The Book of Truth A New Perspective of the
Hopi Creation Story
and Stonehenge, If This Was East

When I look at translations of Egyptian writings and murals, I see where many of their ideas are really based on just on one idea: The pyramids were built for a pharaoh’s tomb and after that, everything else just seems be added on to fit this hypothesis of death and tombs.

When I look at the murals with an open mind, and a point of view based on the Hopi Creation Story, there seems to be a different conclusion . . . a universal language that scholars or time cannot change.

It is the Hopi belief that we are in the fourth world or time. The Creator has had to come back to Earth and help populate (Create) the planet after three global catastrophes. The first world was destroyed by fire, the second by ice and the third by a flood of biblical proportions.

Figure 1

Figure 1: Creator is Creating when seen at this angle. Figure 1 shows the order of creation; From Peter Tompkins, Secrets of the Great Pyramid, Page 258

Figure 1 Explanation: My definition of the mural is: Positive, fertility, productivity, procreation and life giving. The Creator is shown with an erect phallus, a universal symbol of creation, creating four beings or guardians that represent one of each of the four worlds or times, past to the present. Whenever you see these figures represented in another mural, you know which world or time the mural is talking about. The first world is represented by a human figure with a beard; the second world is represented by a baboon-headed figure; the third world by the jackal or dog figure; and last, the fourth world (the present world) is represented by a hawk-headed figure. The Creator is lying at an angle that I imagine has to do with the earth’s tilt or angle, based on the Hopi Creation Story. He has the head of a snake in his right hand and its coils represent our path through the different worlds or times.

Figure 1 is a twenty-first century Dynasty drawing from Albert Champdor’s The Book of the Dead. The standard definition is that Figure One shows a mummy with phallus erect sliding into the Seventh Region of the Lower World, described as being “filled with serpent’s coils and the four sons of Horus who protect the viscera of the dead.” My research has not yielded an explanation of why or how the Egyptologists came up with this explanation.

There Will Come a Time…A Guest Post from the 11:11 Progress Group

August 28, 2011
Teacher Ophelius, Received by Chris

Teacher Ophelius: “Today we will speak about a time of unity. This is a time when all people, races, religions, and nations will come together and ‘feel’ that they are a part of the human family–brothers and sisters of this planet called Urantia. No longer will differences in culture or religion be viewed as something foreign or something to assimilate or eradicate, but such will be looked upon as something to treasure and revere as a rich rainbow of diversity that adds value to the whole of humanity.

“There will come a time when all peoples will revere the planet as the nursery and mother of their terrestrial home and will see to it that She is cared for, respected, and made beautiful for generations to come, for She is the soul generator of the Creator.

“There will come a time when women in every nation will stand on equal ground with men and be viewed as the temple of the Creator’s Indwelling just as all are — men, women, and children, for it is the feminine energies that will transform and bring the planet into balance.

“There will come a time when the raising of children will be the most important duty and never again will they be cast aside as inconveniences or distractions, but will be cherished as the future tenants of a world that is evolving and achieving greatness — where the values of truth, beauty, and goodness are instilled in their souls.

“There will come a time when corporations will become responsible and use philanthropy as the cornerstone of their success to provide jobs and to help solve world problems, while respecting the earth and building a sustainable future.

“There will come a time when governments will actually serve the many and care for the populace by making laws and policies that promote a realistic and sustainable future where all will have access to equality of opportunity–true life, liberty, and happiness.

“There will come a time when wars will be no more and military forces are used for good — to rescue people from unforeseen natural disasters or protect the virtues of equality of opportunity where a life of dignity is available to all men, women, and children.

“Presently, for the majority of the planet, this is not the case, but if you can dream it my friends, you can realize it by focusing your thoughts and directing your actions toward this attainable goal. There are people on this world now who are making a difference and working toward this dream. Seek them out, partner with them, and help grow these sustainable ideas. Only through the unity of our ideals can we realize this very attainable life we all dream of. What things can you do today to start moving in this direction? Meditate on this and put your thoughts into action.

The Dalai Lama’s 18 Rules for Living, A Guest Post by Linda Daniele of Adventures in Writing

At a lovely WordPress blog, Adventures in Writing, created by Linda Daniele, I happened upon her posting of the Dalai Lama’s 18 Rules for Living. Wondering along with me what the post-2011, post-2012 world will look like? The Dalai Lama’s 18 Rules are like a guidebook to the future. Yay!

From Linda’s blog: “With all the busyness that surrounds each and everyone one of us there needs to be moments when we stop to reflect on things. I would like to revisit the Dalai Lama’s 18 Rules for Living – I have always preferred a minimalistic approach to challenges, however, there are just too many important points below to omit any one area.

1. Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

2. When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.

3. Follow the three Rs: Respect for self; Respect for others; Responsibility for all your actions.

4. Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.

5. Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly.

6. Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

7. When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

8. Spend some time alone every day.

9. Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values.

10. Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

11. Live a good, honourable life. Then when you get older and think back, you’ll be able to enjoy it a second time.

12. A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life.

13. In disagreements with loved ones, deal only with the current situation. Don’t bring up the past.

14. Share your knowledge. It’s a way to achieve immortality.

15. Be gentle with the earth.

16. Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.

17. Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.

18. Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.

Which of these rules resonates for you? You may prefer the video clip version at 18 Rules for Living.”

Exact Location of the Hall of Records Based on the Hopi Indian Creation Story, A Guest Post by Thomas O. Mills

By Thomas O. Mills

Before I lived on the Hopi Indian Reservation, I had always been told there were only two options as to where we came from or how we were created on Earth. One option was that a Spiritual Being created all of us from a white man and white woman, and the other was that we crawled out of the sea or evolved over many years of evolution.

After living with the Hopi for four years, I now believe we have a third option and if the Hopi are correct, this is the fourth time the Creator has tried to populate this planet. I believe there is a location, a Hall of Records, where he documented this information for us, using murals, text, and statues.

It is the Hopi belief that the Creator was traveling through space when he found Earth wobbling in space. He instructed his Nephew and the Nephew’s Female companion to stabilize the planet, to create all four races of mankind: black, yellow, red, and white; to distribute them around the planet and provide guardians to each race to teach them language, traits, customs, and religion.

The Nephew and his Female companion were to stay here on Earth to get the job done. They needed a place to stay, tools to do the job, and a labor force. It is my belief that the location where this happened is the pyramid complex in Egypt. I
think many of the temples located around the complex actually form the outline(hieroglyphic) of the Nephew, his Female companion, and the Newborn, or the Embryo, they created.

If I am correct, the Nephew’s tomb has already been found; he was buried in four gold coffins in a room full of treasures. The Female companion’s tomb, who the Hopi call Spider-Woman, has never been found. I believe when it is, it will contain the hall of records or the knowledge from the past. Edgar Cayce predicted the chamber would be
located beneath the right front paw of the Sphinx. Now we have a reason to look.

Please see the illustration below. To read more from Thomas O. Mills on this subject, go to:

Signs of Our Times

I posted the video, The Quickening, yesterday (below this entry) after having watched only the first third of it and did not write an introduction. I should have and this is it.

The film is about the coming shift in consciousness; its producers (Awakening As One) align themselves with Carl Calleman’s view that the Mayan calendar end-date is October 28, 2011—not Dec. 21, 2012. The video can be summed up as a one-and-one-quarter-hour wakeup call that explores the history of the world through the steps of the Mayan pyramid/time capsule, which can be viewed as a record of humankind’s preordained invitation to spiritual evolution.

The main point of the video is that death and destruction, the end of the material world as we know it, long predicted by native cultures, is looming because a large percentage of us humans are stuck in materiality and will not move out of the false world of materiality into the oneness of spiritual unity until faced with our own death—perhaps not until we witness us destroying ourselves and the world in a nuclear WWIII. Therefore, the coming destruction of the material reality is the will of Spirit/God/Creator, a final invitation to join with Light and Love, to live a life not just about ourselves, but of service to Spirit and to others.

The Quickening depicts two ways of experiencing the next months: living with fear, in negativity and hate; or rising from the flames with a strong faith born of a spirit-based perspective, with hearts full of love and gratitude that Truth will, at last, be known. Those who choose unity, the producers report, will experience the destruction of this false reality with grace and ease. Others will live more like rabid animals, searching for food, for example, killing and stealing from whoever is in their way. The filmmakers recommend leaving large cities for the forests and mountains but remind us, also, that we are each exactly where we are supposed to be and if we cannot leave a city, we can connect with Mother Earth by thinking of water, a tree, or the earth under our feet.

To me, the most important point of the film is one that still echoes from the messages of Jesus Christ: Judge not lest ye be judged. The film suggests that the United Nations could call for (after severe destruction by natural disasters and terrorists, nuclear war and the appearance of fake or real alien beings) a one-world government, with a false leader who, for the price of obedience and subservience, will provide for our material needs. Some will accept these terms and others will rise against the one-world system, but it will be those who remain centered in spirituality, in oneness with the Divine Plan/Christ Consciousness, who light the way to healing by forgiveness of everything, offering love and acceptance to all who will accept it. During this period, we may each be asked to face the results of our own imbalances and errors—to see the seeds of darkness within ourselves, not just in others. This experience of humility will lead to oneness if we are willing to let go of our current warring mentality.

Also important are dates in August and September. During the period August 18-September 5, 2011, the filmmakers say a terrorist attack that could collapse the economy could happen, causing another depression and perhaps lead to WWIII.  The Hopi Indians have a prophecy that four celestial bodies will become visible in the ‘end times.’ Two Brothers (who had a hand in Creation), one the guardian of the north pole and the other the guardian of the south pole, will appear in the sky to return the earth to her natural rotation, counter-clockwise. The Blue Star Kachina will arrive and last, the Red Star Kachina, the Purifier. The makers of The Quickening state that the comet Elenin is the Blue Star Kachina and that when we can see the Blue Star, we will know that change is upon us. They also refer to the comets Honda and Levi.

Significantly, when Elenin was in some kind of alignment with earth on Feb. 23, 2010, there was a major earthquake in Chile; on Sept. 4, 2010, there was a large earthquake in New Zealand; and on Mar. 11, 2011, the catastrophic earthquake and resulting tsunami occurred in Japan. Elenin will be aligned with earth again on Sept. 26th and Oct. 16-17thth of this year. During this period we could see an orchestrated alien invasion, three days of darkness (which will come to an end–remain faithful) and more huge earthquakes. The filmmakers also report that on Nov. 3, 2011, earth will pass through the tail of Elenin. (Here is a link to NASA about Elenin, which states that the comet will have no effect on earthlings and there is no other celestial body, i.e. the Red Star Kachina, following it that threatens earth. Here is a link re: Elenin from

I’m posting this introduction to the video because the greed and self-possession of the powerful, which threatens to destroy our world and way of life (that is yet lacking for so many) could lead to our total annihilation. These men are out of control; we Americans, and others, have bought into their plans and Mother Nature and the Great Spirit are, at the very least, shaking us out of our stupor. Some people believe a peaceful, spiritual shift in consciousness is coming. I don’t know, of course, what will happen, but it is our obligation at this moment in time to discuss and consider the possibilities.

Do We Choose Our Lives Or Not?

Yesterday, Kim P, who writes the reflective and soulful blog, Afternoon Storm, left a comment at my latest post, Hopes of the Heart (see below). She called it a powerful post and said that we humans do need to be knocked out of our complacency. In return, I said that the post probably reflected my own sense of despair over the situation in Somalia—that life-sustaining water (only a dream due to a severe drought) and food (only a dream because of militia groups) cannot reach the starving mothers and children we see on the news. My children—who have always had water and food and shelter—are at the heart of my world and I cannot fathom what these mothers must be feeling. I had asked myself, “How can these mothers know that God is Love, that God is with them, under these circumstances?”

Then, attempting to meditate this morning, I felt this: “How can I write that all humans, through their souls, in the space between lives, choose what is best for them for their spiritual growth, and then not accept this when confronted with physical horrors in others’ lives?” A friend once had a feeling that I could have lived and died through the years of the Irish Potato Famine (mid-1800s) and that I had kept telling others, “God is coming. Do not despair. God is love.” As I measured it back then, God did not come and the impression is apparently seared into my genetic memory.

At some deep level, I do know that we choose our lives for spiritual purposes and that it is through the most troubling of situations that we grow the most. Whether we live long lives or not, it is our need to know God, to know that Divine Love is real, that pulls us back toward the Heart of the universe. Yet, Divine Love is reflected also in compassion. Perhaps through these very difficult lives, these souls can, at last, climb off the reincarnation-wheel; let us pray that those who die before water and food reach them return to the Great Heart of Love at the center of the universe.

Are Those Thoughts Yours?

“Life issues are personal depending upon the lessons chosen to be learned in this lifetime, but they are also general in the sense of a world consciousness of ignorance. In ignorance you have allowed your minds to accept any old impersonal beliefs floating around in the universal consciousness. Every belief anyone has ever had is floating about for you to accept or reject.

Most believe that when they have a thought, it is theirs. This is not true and this knowledge is a tool for you to start rejecting all you do not wish to be a part of your consciousness. It wasn’t all that long ago that man accepted the belief that the world was flat, but evolved beyond that. This is what you must do with every old third-dimensional belief that comes your way wanting entrance to your belief system.

Your intuition is guiding you to choose truth, and although at present the outer appearances may be very difficult for you, always let your first step be the recognition that you can never be separate from your divinity. You can never in life or death, sickness or health, rich or poor, be separated from that which you are! Rest in that dear ones, and let that be your very first action; then
proceed to take the human footsteps necessary for the particular task at hand…This is how you change and move beyond the old and outgrown belief system. The only heaven or hell there is, is what you create for yourself through your state of consciousness.

Meditation is important because it opens the door to your Higher Self. It says: “I am ready. Show me the way.” Paraphrasing Edgar Cayce: “Meditation is like riding up in an elevator and as the doors open at each floor you see interesting activity
taking place. Those who choose to stay and get involved in the activities of each floor will never get to the top.”

Dear ones, it is time to start walking the walk instead of just talking the talk. Many think because they read books, have taken or even teach classes, and understand spiritual principles that they have arrived. Knowledge is simply the first step. You must live it. It then unfolds into that which is new and higher and not known on earth yet. We would like to add that the Earth will soon experience a major energy shift. Be prepared and ready for change.”
