Many years ago I discovered an article written by John Perkins. I believe he was/is a karate instructor in New Jersey. He was very accomplished in his craft and was teachings rookie cops who had just gotten out of police academy. They had been taught the skills of a policeman but there was an ingredient that could not be taught at the police academy and that was how to train your mind to act in an immediate situation of dangerous chaos. The article was entitled “Think and Prepare Like a Warrior”. I believe he has written a book on self-defense and not the easy stuff taught by your local YMCA or gym. It is quite hard core.
For the past 20 years I have been writing and speaking about the foolish notion of retirement. My old adage is that the Soul doesn’t come here to retire. It is a man-made construct and gives people the false sense that somehow they can stop working, planning, being productive and creating new careers. The Soul doesn’t come to earth to retire. It has a long blueprint even going out 120 years and some of the most productive years are from 60 onward. Finally, there are some statistics to support this thinking. Not only have we shortened our lives by planning on retirement, getting monies together so we can live on less, or have enough to last as long as we do–or not, heaven forbid; we begin to accept the deterioration of our health as if that should go along with our ideas about
As we advance further into the Aquarian Age and away from the Piscean Age, the forces of change continue to push against the dying Age to birth the new. It has been happening for ions and it assists in the progress and evolution of the earth species. In our case, humans. Our Aquarian Age will only gather strength as new horizons open up for enlightenment, individual freedom, expansive use of the mind, a greater understanding of the “Source”, “God”. We are leaving an old Age of structure and form–rigid rule, rigid doctrine, rigid law. We have thought that God was eternal and sitting out there in the sky with a whip. Fear has been used as the teaching tool in the old Piscean Age. It was during this time that Christianity created “celestial monarchies” and institutionalized “guilt”. The church militants even sing about “Onward Christian Soldiers Marching Off to War”. It was for humans to begin to understand and discover that there is something beyond herself or himself and move away from the “sky God”.
Over several years we have been experiencing school shootings that are mainly acted out by young men and consistently around the age of 15 years. Why is it so common to see this age pop up for the shootings? Sometimes we see the young man at 14. Other times we see the young man’s age at 16. It is usually right in this window of 14-16. What can we understand about this critical age that is completely unknown to psychologists and others who try to study this phenomena?
From the latest headlines coming out of Washington, you would think that America will both gradually and swiftly get rid of its immigrants. The latest of which is the announcement to remove 200,000 El Salvadoreans by September, 2019. This is on top of the Haitians and the continual push across the states to remove those who are “illegals”. It seems not too much has changed since the end of the revolution when the big complaint was about the Germans and how to get rid of them as they were ruining our language and changing the street signs. America is the land of immigrants, including the history of all those who run the government theater.
As we begin the New Year of 2018 and promise many things we will change about ourselves, we might just go back to the very basics, what we say, how we say it and what it does to our lives. We can memorize affirmations, change our eating habits, promise ourselves we’ll be better with our
Last week I was up on the Central Coast of California enjoying a few days of rest. It is just about my most favorite area of California. It has a wonderful pace of life and mile after mile of coastal beauty. I like to go there and just hide away in one of the lovely
I have been repeating for a least 20 years that woman would begin their visible presence when we reached the year 2,000 and we begin to work with the feminine energy of the number two. You are watching it slowly show up and have been made more aware with each passing year. Remember we have only been working with the first 17 years and the entire 2,000 year period lasts 1,000 years.
John Maudlin, a great financial writer and consultant, recently wrote a piece about the “Bonfire of the Absurdities”. He was using it as a financial metaphor. The actual book he was referring to is Thomas Wolfe’s “Bonfire of the Vanities.” It was written several years ago about the financial markets. I think it was made into a movie. Nevertheless, that’s not the point of this post but it is a reference marker.
I have written several times about the rise in power of women and especially middle-aged women but it hasn’t seemed to change–or has it? You are experiencing the rise in her power every day and in almost every media feed. The recent and continual exposure of unwanted sexual advancement by men both in and out of power will only get louder.
