The Path to Peace

I have often been asked in radio interviews and by viewers what I feel is '...the single most important issue facing the human race?” The latter is something I’ve given a great deal of thought and always come back to the same place - integration. We are not an integrated species, though we could be. Some people call it living from the heart and it’s true that this is a big part of it. But there’s even more. I am speaking of integration of the physical/emotional animal being that is us and the transcendent, sublime portion that is known as our spirit or soul.

It’s an almost unfathomably comical, yet profoundly unfortunate, enigma. We are controlled by our emotions and mind when we have at our disposal a source of calm and wisdom that is beyond most people’s imagination. But, because we either ignore our soul or deny it exists, we are cast into a kind of ignorance that beings from other planets, dimensions and universes must scratch their varying types of heads over.

Any part of ourselves that we feed, or give attention to, gains in strength and power, just as in training the body for strength. If we are addicted to fear or anger, then we will tend to put ourselves in relationships and situations in which there is an abundance of drama, even something as innocent as watching scary movies. It feeds that emotional muscle, which allows the emotional part of us to keep itself in the driver’s seat. The mind does the same by seeking opportunities for control, judgement or separation. But the soul/spirit does none of the above.

This part of ourselves exists in a field of potential beyond our physical reality and is experienced as a subtle sense of joy and expansiveness. It is beyond judgement, blame and anger. It is the part that knows beauty, kindness and truth. We can feel it, especially in meditation, but we don’t know how to live within it. If we did, this world would look nothing like what we are seeing in front of us! Could there possibly be any endeavor more worth the effort?

Instead, we are dragged around by our noses by the institutions of the world - corporations, banks, media, religion, education, local culture and tradition - when we have peace, joy and harmony sitting right there inside us, largely ignored or underused. We also have vast psychic abilities available to us once we connect with our spirit. We could no longer be hoodwinked by the previously mentioned institutions or each other. Wouldn’t that be a world worth living in?

It’s the season dedicated to peace and joy. What if we chose to truly live within these concepts? In my next blog I will share the means by which we can begin this journey - the most meaningful journey of our lives bar none. Meanwhile, I’m wishing you peace and joy in every way you can find it!

Merry Christmas and love to all!

Otherworldly Mystery Missile?

November 8th was being touted as a day to watch. Insiders said global money markets could come crashing down, The Fed was about to buy up its own debt and protest was mounting in Seoul where the G-20 summit was about to commence. But what dominated headlines that evening was the Mystery Missile.

A KCBS-TV news helicopter caught the red vapor trail from what looked like a missile whizzing by off the coast of Southern California at 5:00 in the afternoon. The Pentagon immediately attempted to soothe the public by saying that there was no threat to national security. All divisions of the military admitted they had no idea what it was nor where it came from. Rumor and conjecture were blooming like algae across the internet. Soon fingers were pointing at China followed by blame that our military could be so unprepared - again.

Meanwhile, the mainstream media began the spin - it was the contrail of a jet. The story died on the airwaves within 48 hours.

I took a break from the hysteria and meditated on the situation. A larger question rose to the surface. While this may seems like a fringe line of thought, it is not out of the realm of possibility. What if alien presence that resides in an underground base was responsible for the missile launch? What if the launch was intended to be perceived as a terrestrial military threat to throw the world into chaos so that the various agendas such as martial law could be implemented. This would be the beginning of the larger agenda of creating an official police state within the United States that the elites have been working for so long to accomplish. Knowing of the economic tensions with China, it would be assumed that this was an aggressive move by the Chinese.

Meanwhile, I pondered a CVF (counter veiling force) intervening on humanity's behalf from having studied the issue of ETs and UFO phenomenon. Its my understanding that, while it is not permissible for ET cultures to interfere with other developing species such as ours, intervention is allowed if the event was perpetrated by another "off-planet" ET species. There is Universal Law to that governs such actions. Perhaps an underwater ET group that could have created such an event in collusion with the earthly Elite. We have heard of this relationship in the work of many contemporaries including the recently deceased Zecharia Sitchin, Dolores Cannon, Barbara Lamb, David Icke and Michael Tellinger.

As preposterous as this may sound, I am comfortable with the realization that our planet is teeming with life of all sorts and that ETs are part of earth's history as we are. I have taken the time to study some of this first hand in connection with the Disclosure Project and many of our interviewees and learned that there is historical precedent of friendly/protective ETs taking down missiles. This was well chronicled by the Disclosure Project.

Through my time with Command Sergeant Major Robert Dean (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Dean_(ufologist) I learned of the underwater and underground ET bases, which have likely been here for thousands of years if not from the beginning of life on earth. You can look into this yourself.

A few days after the event I was watching a History Channel documentary on Unidentified Submerged Objects (USOs). It was stating that the most often reported USO activity by witnesses was in the very region the missile had been seen originating from on November 8th - near the California Channel Islands off the coast of Southern California.

Today another internet article came to my attention. Within it a man claiming to be retired U.S. Navy Fire Control Technician said there was no question that the mystery missile was just that - a missile, not a contrail. He also stated that this was not an American missile. The same article went on to build a case against the Chinese. Personally, I do not believe for one moment that the Chinese would be either stupid or rash enough to make such an imprudent move.

So, what I am left with is a sea of possibilities and am open to all of them. I do not think that the proliferation of programs on television and on the internet concerning aliens and UFOs is an accident. These trends occur either by design and for purpose or as a result of collective consciousness expressing itself. Either way, it’s coming close to a time in which we are going to have to face the reality that we are not alone and all of the potential consequences and benefits of this reality.

Is it possible that November 8th offered us a glimpse of both?

Surviving Everything: Part 2

A CMN viewer posted a comment regarding Surviving Everything stating that it would be psychologically and spiritually challenging to think of stocking up on food and water when so much of the world is suffering to the point of starvation. I would guess others feel the same way, which is why I am writing this response.

This is a very delicate topic as what I am about to say can be easily misconstrued, but I would like to say it nonetheless. Understand that these are my perceptions only.

My orientation is toward personal responsibility on all levels, which includes the soul’s choices.

Life on earth is for learning, playing and experiencing as much as we can in any given incarnation. There are built in parameters within this experience. As I spoke about in my November Fifth Element, incarnations are not random. There is a great deal to take into consideration before one incarnates into an earth life. If a Being has not been making conscious choices from one incarnation to the next, our options begin to narrow.

First is a matter of our DNA, which is associated with the tribe/family/bloodline. We have a set of opportunities and challenges that are presented within particular familial bloodlines. A given bloodline may represent a type of physical body, mind, spiritual understanding, emotional development and/or karma.

Each of us has been caught in cycles of familial/bloodline/DNA patterns throughout our personal history of earth incarnations. The mere fact that most of us have been doing it for a while would indicate that there has been an accumulation of inter-connectedness that may be laden with habitual patterning and/or obligation.

Once a Being has learned what can be learned within a bloodline or type of experience, they generally choose another type of experience. Because there needs to be a DNA compatibility, they need to find a body that allows easy integration while, at the same time, attempting to break out of an old pattern.

Much of the suffering and poverty on this planet has to do with these incarnation cycles, and the difficulty one may have with releasing themselves from this pattern. There is not a single Being on this planet who did not choose to be here now, and be here in the family/tribe/DNA pool that they live amongst. The soul has full knowledge of an incarnation path prior to incarnation. So one might wonder why would anyone choose poverty?

I think it’s rare for a soul to choose poverty and degradation. This may happen where one is trying to learn a lesson or repay karma and is choosing to do it the most direct way possible. This takes courage and is a bold choice.

What I think happens more often is that a soul is stuck in a certain reality and does not understand how to release themselves. This takes an extra degree of determination, will and courage for any of us to free ourselves of any kind of pattern, no less centuries or millennia of habitual circumstance.

While recently speaking of how time and the process of aging is changing, a friend was telling me she felt it to be so unfair that we live so well, relatively speaking, while women in Haiti have such a burden of abuse, poverty and hunger. How can it be that these realities exist side by side? Where is the fairness?

She then went on to tell me of a Haitian woman she knows here in America and how the woman had told her of the reality of old age in Haiti. The Haitian woman said life is over at 60, that you simply wait to die because you have no further place nor purpose after this age. My friend thought this to be very sad.

I shared with her thoughts similar to what I am sharing now and I told her that what brings tears to my eyes are stories such as this Haitian woman who has found a way to educate herself and free herself of her suffering by beginning a new life in the United States. This woman has made a bold choice that will forever alter her incarnation patterns. It is unlikely, knowing all she has learned, that she would choose to incarnate into her previous poverty ridden circumstance. She has made a break. The beauty of this brings tears to my eyes because everyone of us has been here - at choice points - to choose to say “yes” to an unknown or even frightening option on the intuition it could bring something better. This is how we change our experience from one incarnation to the next.

I say this because, while it hurts most human beings to see another truly suffer, to stop our own learning and experience because another is suffering may not be the wisest choice. Did you choose to have a lifetime of suffering? If you did not, then why not focus on what you can do now for yourself, your loved ones and anyone else you choose to be of service to, and not negate your own purpose this lifetime?

Our life on earth is the school in which we make real choices and take real actions that will determine what will be available to us now and in the future. If we choose to take care of our physical bodies through the minor or major disruptions life may offer in the form of having food and water on hand for the body, who is harmed in this? Should we feed ourselves even if we cannot effect change for all of the other bodies who are hungry and suffering? People who are starving would say ‘yes.’ This does not limit us from lending a helping hand where possible.

An incarnation is not to be wasted, and to die prematurely and unnecessarily serves no Soul. In the end, every single Soul on this planet is going to get through even the most severe upheaval alive and well, and likely ready to do it again, because we do not die, we only change densities back and forth. When we depart one dimension we are born into the other. Still, we have this golden opportunity of earth life now and we must take care of our body the best we can. This is our journey.

Too Small to Fail

I’m sitting at Peet’s Coffee sipping peppermint tea on a sunny afternoon, writing this blog as the U.S. fills virtual ink cartridges with a few tons of virtual green ink to create $600-billion of more virtual money while an ounce of gold just hit $1400. What could possibly go wrong? It sounds like it’s all under control as long as the price of virtual ink doesn’t rise. Still, something keeps nagging at me......

In juxtaposition to the Freakonomy driven side-show of the Back-to-Bush politics that swept America last Tuesday, I sat with John Perkins on Saturday for an interview on the muck that is the real underpinnings of our global geo-political reality. This reality does not discriminate between democracy and totalitarianism, fascism or communism.

You could call our current type of governance a corporatocracy or corporatarianism, it doesn’t matter. The same handful of CEOS (and their masters) run the whole game. The global corporate goal: to enslave poor countries possessing valuable resources with un-payable debt, which allows, upon default of the loan, the ravaging of their resources by multi-national corporations. This pisses off the country that has just been plundered, and it’s leaders, forcing them to make strong threatening statements, such as an intention to nationalize their resources. Then you send in the CIA's private contractors to create unrest among their people, overthrow the government, and get a more U.S. friendly leader in office to allow the U.S. (and other exploitive corporatocracies) to continue plundering free of any regulations or restrictions.

Another agenda is to enslave the populations of formerly well-to-do nations with massive debt that can never be repaid to support military efforts from which the same players profit, and to bail out the financial institutions operated by, yes, the same players. Sometimes the game backfires. One small example is Somali piracy.

John has met with pirates, and just about every other kind of disenfranchised and indigenous people. The multi-national fishing companies have wiped out and polluted the Somali coastal fish populations, their traditional means of support. Angry and hungry young Somalian men have adapted. Once the line is crossed into unlawful and violent behavior, it’s difficult to turn the page back. Besides there is nothing to go back to.

This is one small example of backlash for the West’s reckless and usurious agendas, all of which exist far beyond the reach of any voter anywhere. We are all being hoodwinked by our world's governments, a sentiment that is reflected in the title of John's newest book. The problem is so large that the only way out is small - you and me, one determined person at a time.

For me, the only thing that is making sense anymore is that we each need to begin the profound undertaking of building a new ‘economy’ from the ground up, and we don’t need the permission from any our governments to start exploring and implementing something that works for us.

On our small note, Scott and I are gardening, have some food and water in reserve and are exploring other sustainable community endeavors including Time Banking.

I addressed Time Banking/Contributionism in my current interview with Michael Tellinger and past interview with Stephanie Rearick. With this option, we simply have to answer a few primary questions - What do I love doing? Where do my skills lie? How much of my time am I willing to give?

In this spirit of Contributionism, I phoned the mayor of our small town. He returned the call explaining that, not only is he interested in the concept of Time Banking, he is also exploring establishing a local currency and is well into development of sustainable local food programs.

We have heard from some of our CMN friends that they too are taking on the task of inspiring their communities to do the same or joining in similar efforts. This makes my heart happy.

Meanwhile, I think we need to honor the simplistic, good-hearted and naive among us because these are the traits that will be needed while attempting something this profound.

I’ll update you after I meet with the Mayor.

Surviving Everything

I have been inundated with forecasts of every kind as to the outlook for our national and global economy, our planet’s solar activity, our spiritual crisis of awakening, astrological indicators pointing to grand scale change and the call for contact with alien beings. If I hadn’t been in these circles for so long ‘overwhelm’ would be the appropriate word here. But as I allow it all to wash over me, my focus comes back to simple themes. What is it that I can personally control?

From the physical level, the forecasts of economic collapse, hyper-inflation and potential weather events effecting food supplies, I have chosen to focus on putting together a few months supply of food. The supporting advice for this course of action comes from everyone from Gerald Celente, Clif High and George Green to Catherine Austin Fitts. Catherine is the only one among them that seems to believe that the meltdown will be a slow burn rather than a catastrophic upheaval. They have all been making such suggestions for a while, but on an intuitive level it feels like it may be a good time to put a plan into action. Scott has seen to the flashlights, water filters, hatchets and all things manly, while I am taking care of our stomachs and health.

As I analyzed how I would like to experience life in the event of food shortages and chaos, I choose a life with a little spice. This means I’m putting together a slightly different kind of food supply than the military style rations you hear advertised on Coast-to-Coast. Survival isn’t enough for me. I want to live while I’m riding out any potential storm.

First is organic basmati brown rice. This is basic good thinking as brown rice is a staple that works for almost every human being as virtually no one is allergic to organic brown rice.

Next comes the dried beans, again basic. Then canned tomatoes, various canned vegetables, olive oil, spices, gluten free flours, raw sugar, condiments, canned chicken breast, canned tuna, rice pasta, canned fruits, almond butter, dried coconut, raw nuts, raw honey, raw cacao, evaporated milk, coffee and teas and a variety of other good tasting foods that make survival worth the effort.

The magazine Mother Jones made us an offer we couldn’t refuse on Chicken Coop books so we accidentally bought two. We think about five feathered girls should do and will begin building the their abode in a couple of weeks as we need to keep the chickens out of our garden and the dogs away from the chickens.

Once the bulky foods and water are secured, I am adding super foods. Dr. Mercolas Miracle Whey protein powder (made from raw milk) works for protein supplementation, though I may need to procure a small loan for this purchase. That’s assuming anybody would loan me money.

I use super greens, which are easy to store and light weight. Goji berries are a great anti-oxidant and source of vital nutrients. The list of obvious supplements such as a good B Vitamin mix to keep the nerves in tact and Vitamin C for the immune system is growing. I have also begun begun collecting key homeopathic remedies, particularly all the flu remedies.

Once our bodily needs are taken care of comes relationships. One CMN viewer recently wrote me about his financial dilemma with investments due to the declining dollar to which I replied, my opinion only, that the new currency is the quality of our relationships with one another. If they are broken, we had better fix them because we may need to rely on the good graces of our friends, neighbors and family at one time or another if the excrement hits the fan. Or they may be relying on us and we had better be feeling generous.

As for the ethereal part of our existence, meditation and strengthening the connection with our essential/eternal self seems appropriate. If we take it to it’s logical worst case scenario, we could end up with no need for our gourmet survival kit and flashlights because our bodies have ceased to exist for some reason. This could be disconcerting for anyone who has yet to consider the bigger questions such as “Who am I?” I don’t think it’s wise to be caught out on this one. We are more than our bodies and if any catastrophe hits we do not want to be drifting in some confused out-of-body state when we could make a smooth transition to our other dimensional state. This means some soul searching, quality meditation time and, perhaps, expanded esoteric understanding might be wise.

If we are confronted with ETs, I suggest we relax. Not much we can do about that one as they may be more in control of the situation than we are. If they’re friendly, they may be able to add some clarity to the “Who am I” question if you haven’t already worked through this one.

There’s my list. Food, friends and spiritual understanding. I think that should do it. Oh, and a solar powered radio and CD player because the music should keep on playing, no matter what.

Godshill Enigma

As Scott and I continue our journey around England conducting interviews and visiting Scott’s family, we found ourselves on the Isle of Wight yesterday for an afternoon visit with David Icke.

As David drove us around the island I would oooh and ahhh at the quaint little villages, tea shops, hardware stores and pubs. “David, this is so cute!” I said as we drove through a tiny village called Godshill. He, in response, explained that the Isle of Wight was perhaps the most heavily implicated community in England, per capita, in terms of pedophilia, drug running, satanic rituals and other Masonic activity with some of the people in and around Godshill seriously implicated. My mind immediately jumped to the comedy film Hot Fuzz in which the sleepy English village was struggling with a series of grisly murders. An earnest, but naïve, policeman was brought in from London to investigate, only to find out that at the core of the town was a secret society of townsfolk who murdered their fellow citizens over various mundane quarrels.

Godshill appeared to be just such a sleepy, lovely spot. Tourists wander through shops adorned with the traditional flower boxes hanging from the windows overflowing with petunias and geraniums. No one would guess such a dark heart lie at the core of this vision of English gentility, an example of dark using beauty to disguise its hideous face.

David further explained the means by which a great deal of information has been made available to him. It’s as organic, on one level, as any town gossip, only the stakes are enormously high. The wife of a Mason, or the secretary of some local elite, the spotting of certain license plates in suspicious locations, secrets even at this level cannot be kept in one’s backyard. By simply being on the island, which David has been drawn to since the age of 5 while on family vacations, David has been positioned to break the code of silence. He reveals this agenda on stage as the fearless investigator.

Later, over lunch, the conversation turned to, among other things, the vast amount of comment that has followed my last blog. He was reflecting that it should not surprise anyone that he has his own personal issues that must be played out in the third dimensional arena. It’s here, on earth, that each of us must grapple with the forces being presented us so that we, through this density, can ultimately shift the holographic reality. David is not exempt from this human struggle. On the contrary, it takes a unique individual to play the role he has taken on in this lifetime, one with big enough shoulders to withstand the constant bombardment of judgment, interference and personal strife, much of which is being purposefully projected his way from the obvious opposing interests to serve as intimidation or to simply wear him down. This is not to dismiss the fact that some of the hardship is a result of his own choices as a human being. It still surprises him that anyone would expect him to be beyond mistakes, which are often part of our soul’s plan or agreement, and tribulation as he has always said that the words he imparts on stage apply to himself as well as anybody.

His job is to share his findings, not claim his own perfection. He is still pulling the pieces together as to how his personal journey reflects the larger portrait of the matrix, of humanity reclaiming its innate sovereignty and dissolving the control systems. And, while the man on the stage has put many pieces of the picture together for humanity’s benefit, the human being is contending with life just like the rest of us.
