Not from successful love alone, Nor wealth, nor honor’d middle age, nor victories of politics or war; But as life wanes, and all the turbulent passions calm, As gorgeous, vapory, silent hues cover the evening sky, As softness, fulness, rest, suffuse the frame, like freshier, balmier air, As the days take on a mellower light, and the apple at last hangs really finish’d and indolent-ripe on the tree, Then for the teeming quietest, happiest days of all! The brooding and blissful halcyon days!
For those of you on the edge of your seats as the Mayan calendar rolled over, welcome to The Rest Of It. If a shift is yet to come, we might be well advised that no one will know the day or the hour. Meanwhile, we find ourselves still in these same meatsuits facing a job yet undone. We cannot live for an end; we must strive for a beginning. We must be the change – we must live the shift.
We still live in a time of chaos, destruction and collapse. Things are intense out there. In fact, sometimes I look out and wonder whether the Mayans were actually right, but we just don’t recognize the signs anymore. Around us, the world is choking. Mega-corporations destroy Nature for greed; senseless murder, death and war terrorize; Big Brother tightens his grip; economic disparities abound, and collapse looms; our food, water and air are poisoned; the earth is cracking, shaking, exploding, and sinking; climate change and geoengineering are causing massive storms, floods and drought; possible inbound bogies and nuclear disaster threaten the world as we know it. Demons are running amok, and “The End is Still Near.” Are you still ready?
But we also live in a time of social revolution and evolution. Around us, powerful positive memes await the hundredth monkey. “The Beginning is Here.“ Can you hear them?
Divisiveness is a powerful tool of the dark side. I believe it was Machiavelli who first wrote about such ideas; not sure, because it is surely an ancient practice. Will we be able to rise above the crashing waves, to find balance? Will we overcome before we are overcome?
The word “Apocalypse” actually means “a revealing of something hidden.”
Knowledge can save us. Knowledge of what is right and good; knowledge of who the bad guys are and what they could really be up to; knowledge of the power we hold to change the very foundation of our civilization. Knowledge of love, of community, of neighborhood and Nature. Will we have to survive planetary upheaval to realize the truth? Will Creation have to wait for Destruction to pave the Way?
While skeptics gleefully dance circles around others who were anticipating a Last Day, perhaps it’s time for us all to consider that we are living in a season of change. Maybe these strange days are a kind of Galactic “days out of time”. In the Mayan’s rather imperfect Haab’ calendar, the five days of Wayeb’ are the five extra days added to the 360-day year as “unlucky” days during which time, “portals between the mortal realm and the Underworld dissolved. No boundaries prevented the ill-intending deities from causing disasters.” Sounds kind of familiar, doesn’t it?
We know it literally is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius, astronomically speaking. The Kali Yuga and its monstrosities are winding down, perhaps to the consternation of those monsters who so thrive. And perhaps that is why we currently live in an often horrific world imprisoned by electromagnetic grids, debt, ignorance, violence and deceit. We – apparently at least most of us anyway – are seriously not on the right wavelength in any sense of the word. Are the powers-that-be trying to keep us from understanding our potential with an induced frequency haze? Are we rapidly spinning towards a Golden Age of Enlightenment, whether they like it or not? Is this the darkness before the dawn? As crazy as it sounds, this article on an alleged secret space war actually makes all the insanity seem saner. It really might have to be something that mind-boggling to begin to make sense of the mind-boggling senselessness going on out there. Frankly, I am not finding any satisfactory answers in the “mainstream” media, science and history they seem so desperate to keep us attuned to. (Like this, or this.) And I know I’m not alone in that. All I know is that I don’t know. And that is a better start to the truth than the crap we are force fed.
So allow me to continue. Perhaps, these cosmic “days out of time”, however long they might stretch, would end with the start of a new and different calendar, in a new era. Even mainstream science is discovering strange things like our solar system is indeed “passing through an interstellar cloud that physics says should not exist.” Some believe we are headed through something like a Photon Belt towards Alcyone, the center star of the Pleiades. Others that a Galactic Wave looms. These theories do seem to resonate with ancient teachings and lost histories, which rumored of “Golden” ages, as well as Dark ones.
Call me a dreamer, but it is interesting to further consider that the “Halcyon Days” are the mythological seven days each winter when storms never occur. They are days of peace. While the poetic phrase may recollect bygone nostalgia, we should be open to the idea that happy, carefree days are ahead of us. In fact, they might be here already, if we’d only open our third eyes and Know; if we’d only listen to the ancient teachers and their kind, simple words. Perhaps a trip through the Pleiades would serve as a cosmic wake-up call to all the still-asleep sheeple…
Hey – just sayin’. Anyone got any better ideas?
As the Mayan red herring (psyops?) swims by, I cannot help but think yet again of the boy crying wolf. How did a misinterpretation of an ancient calendar cause this much panic, preparation and paranoia? Were we all just lab rats in a global laboratory? Were they curious to see what kind of fear they could perpetuate, or did something really happen we are just not aware of yet? Are we now well put off to ever consider heeding any further warnings – like this for example? Is catastrophe still ahead of us? Because many of the possible scenarios imagined for the “Mayan Apocalypse” are still possible, but many will no longer listen, now that The Date has passed.
I am aware that some people are disappointed that something major didn’t happen, like aliens landing, or a pole shift or a massive solar flare, or even a consciousness shift. I find myself sympathizing with that train of thought and I think it’s because so many of us feel disenfranchised and disillusioned with the status quo. We just want something to change in a big way, because much of what’s going on out there hurts our hearts.
I agree: something has to change, and in a Big Way. But look around – things are changing, and it’s not always easy. Sometimes the bad parts have to be called out and torn down, kicking and screaming, before we can rebuild. And let us not forget the the most important change comes from within. As many have been discovering during some hard times recently, simple compassion and mutual aid work quite well. So no matter what happens, let’s keep walking towards this powerful love that might indeed be the Force that deals the final blow to our oppressors, and ends the world as they knew it.
The Art of Peace is not easy. It is a fight to the finish, the slaying of evil desire and all falsehood within. On occasion the Voice of Peace resounds like thunder, jolting human beings out of their stupor.
I stopped posting here regularly a long time ago, for several reasons. First, I’d said pretty much everything I had to say, and so many other people had taken up similar work I figured it was becoming redundant and frankly, a waste of my time. So I decided to walk the walk instead, and have concentrated my efforts on things like living life outside the Matrix, gardening and survival skills.
But when the earthquake/tsunami hit in March 2011, I decided to put up a new blog with more localized information for emergency preparedness here in Hawaii. I don’t write much on that one either, since the really relevant information can be found in my sidebar links. Occasionally however, I have reason to write again, like now. (And, I reserve the right to come back here now and again, as puzzle pieces warrant.)
There are a lot of things one can say about this unusual storm, and we may never know the whole truth. But in the short term, it doesn’t really matter whether Freakstorm Sandy was caused by climate change, weather modification programs, HAARP, solar flares, Planet X, weather wars, none or all of the above – people just need to pay attention, prioritize, prepare and keep their loved ones safe as best they can. Even one life lost is one too many.
Throughout history many people have named dates for the apocalypse. So far, only ridicule and derision have been successfully predicted on such days, as these proverbial boys cry out about nonexistent wolves to a few townspeople. However, the Mayan calendar may put all those others to shame for the sheer number of minds focused on this date around the world. Some say that calendar ends mysteriously on our equivalent of December 21, 2012. Internet searches now bring up millions of results on these topics, major motion pictures have tantalized multitudes, and perhaps billions will be holding their breath that day if we haven’t already been annihilated by then. So welcome to 2012. It should be a banner year regardless with all that energy behind it.
My mission from the beginning of Surfing the Tao years ago has been to prepare hearts, minds and spirits for a great change to the world as we know it now, coming in our lifetime. Just take a look around – it’s already happening, one could argue. Warnings are everywhere, in what is being said as well as in what is not being said. Though I personally don’t expect something earth-shattering to happen next December 21 exactly, remember that in the end the wolf did indeed destroy the flock. We may not know the hour or the day, but we can know the season. And I do believe we are in that season.
So be ready, and don’t let anything surprise you. Don’t be surprised if something earth-shattering does happen that day, or months before or years after. Don’t be surprised if a tremendous earthquake and tsunami – and subsequent nuclear disaster – hit somewhere in the US. Don’t be surprised if a massive solar flare fries global power grids for years to come. Don’t be surprised if Iran, China, North Korea or some other rogue nation hit us with EMPs or nukes. Don’t be surprised if erupting volcanoes shut down global air traffic for months. Don’t be surprised if a deadly virus infects and kills millions. Don’t be surprised if the world’s economies crash and our dollar is worth only the paper it’s printed on. Don’t be surprised if the moon crumbles and falls to Earth in a million pieces. Don’t be surprised to see a swarming army of red demons flying out of the skies, false Messiahs broadcasting on our airwaves, UFOs landing on the White House lawn or plague-ridden zombies shuffling down your street.
But also don’t be surprised if next New Years, millions of people ring in 2013 with a lot of pointing and laughing. If you’re one of the preppers who is convinced that 2012 holds something special, be prepared for the idea that this is not the year. And if it isn’t, don’t stop your preparations. It may be the oldest trick in the book.
This is why I write about so many of these alternative topics instead of what people might imagine they would find in a place called Surfing the Tao – I was warned to expect as much, and also taught how to ride such a seemingly unpredictable and monstrous wave, spiritually and psychologically. As I was led from one piece of the puzzle to the other and the shock became numbing, I was also being taught to “let go” and allow things be as they are, no matter how horrible they seemed to my small human brain. That there was a larger plan at work, that we are not alone in more ways than one, and that things were going to be ok – in fact not just ok, but incredibly wonderful. Just that there were some hard bits to get through first. That destruction can be a pathway to creation.
“Letting go” is not an easy concept for most westerners, especially when one is guided to be prepared at the same time. That irony is part of the Taoist side of it I suppose, though I’ve heard Christians use the “let go, let God” thing too so there must be something deeper there. Many might be surprised, as I talk about the Tao, that I will say how important Jesus is to it all. Not worldly religion, mind you – the Dude Himself. He is a crucial part of the Tao, and our story. Because as long as you’re listening and paying attention – in other words, participating as a loving God would guide – then you can easily catch the wave, no matter how monstrous it seems to be, or how many sharks are circling. You can’t control it, but you can navigate it, and love is the key. If you continuously lose balance with selfishness, greed, fear, anger, etc., you will crash and burn. But I’m no evangelist. I have yet to find any earthly organization with 100% truth in word and deed. They’ve all warped over time, been misunderstood, abused, mistranslated and even infiltrated and intentionally misinformed. Even some modern Taoist interpretations, for that matter. It just happened that I found the simplicity of ancient Chinese wisdom to be a relatively unadulterated spiritual tool as I researched things like flying saucers and angels and secret brotherhoods and ancient aliens and mysterious megaliths and various other topics you won’t find on CNN or in traditional interpretations of the Bible. Christ the Eternal Tao is one of my favorite books.
During the past decade, many, many others have begun waking up to alternative interpretations of our reality and by now, much of what I’ve written about is common knowledge amongst a certain group of people. Unfortunately, a much wider spectrum of our population still knows nothing of these topics, and smirk and pish-posh as they turn their attention back to their smart phones. For example, some people talk about a people’s revolution in the works – but just take a look around. Whatever you may say about the Occupy Wall Street movement these last few months, whether Illuminati-funded or truly grassroots, when we hear that record numbers of people waited hours in line this holiday season and even physically attacked each other for the chance to spend more of the fake money printed by our criminal banksters for more useless stuff sold pretty much by those same criminals – well, *sigh*. So it goes.
I can therefore assure you that if you are still reading this and have had preparations for something earth-shattering cross your mind, you will probably be one of the relative few, though those numbers are rising. 2011 experienced more disaster than any previously recorded year. And check the news, it’s not over yet – hurricane force winds, massive storms, tornadoes, floods, landslides, sinkholes, earthquakes, volcanoes, mass unexplained animal deaths, even a potential China Syndrome in Japan. You name it, it’s happening. Heck, if we can have a 5.5 earthquake on our east coast of all places, I think really anything could happen, anywhere, anytime. I could go on for pages about what could be WWIII has been brewing for quite awhile, and isn’t getting any less likely. Economic crises around the world threaten stock markets, currencies, jobs; hungry and homeless people are lining up at soup kitchens more and more here in the US while foreclosed homes sit empty…it doesn’t seem to be getting any better, though the talking heads on the “news” continue slogging their propaganda to keep us hypnotized and none the wiser. And don’t forget about all the strange happenings in the skies: rumored deadly asteroids, meteors, falling satellites, second suns, HAARP signatures, chemtrails, UFO sightings and more and more entertainment programming about visitors from other worlds whether friend or foe, and apocalyptic scenarios. Disclosure, at least on their terms, may indeed be in progress, and Planet X may actually be around the corner.
It might be easier to sit in our bubbles and call this kind of talk fear-mongering, but pay attention to what the elites are up to. Personally, it all makes my hackles go up. The secrets behind closed doors, secret underground bases, secret technology, secret science and secret history make up the base of an enormous iceberg of which we can only see a tiny tip. We may know some of the puzzle pieces, but there are many, many more. It’s an ongoing and for now, often disturbing project, one I hope to complete in joy, and in peace, once the hard times are past – because, regardless of the difficulties we surely still must face, there will be a happy ending. Like I said – it’s a bit like surfing, and does require faith, balance and love, in some measure. And, we are not alone – in the good Way. I can’t prove that though, I can only pass it along to those with ears to hear.
Could be that the Mayans were actually trying to tell us something, and that even our scientists were right as to the actual day in translation. Or perhaps their calendar-maker just got tired. It’s also possible the dates could be a bit off. Days, weeks, months, even years. Could be sooner, or later. Point is – if you’re still here reading this, it’s time to get ready, because you, like me and others, sense more is coming, Mayans or no Mayans. Things will change – are changing – historically, devastatingly, and also, finally, beautifully. But perhaps not on any date you might expect.
I anticipate a series of events, in fact it is my belief that they have already started and that we are indeed in the season. It would be my suggestion not to wait for December to prepare, or lose faith if it comes and goes. The wolves are elusive, but that doesn’t mean they’re not out there. Build up your resources now. Wax your boards so you won’t fall off riding that swell. Make a plan as best you can, and don’t wait. But also realize there is no way you, I or anyone can perfectly anticipate exactly how, if, when or where things may happen. Be emotionally prepared for that too.
So welcome, again, to 2012. I’d like to simply blithely wish everyone Happy New Year and move along; I hope that there really isn’t any wolf this time either. But in my heart, I know I would regret not saying one more time…be prepared in your home and in your heart, for anything, everything…or for nothing at all this year.
Bees sip honey from flowers and hum their thanks when they leave.
The gaudy butterfly is sure that the flowers owe thanks to him.
– Rabindranath Tagore (1861 – 1941)
May you live in interesting times.
That phrase, of assumed Chinese proverbial origin, is considered by many a curse to be wished upon an enemy.
There is no doubt we are living in very interesting times indeed. So to endlessly mourn that our trip through this life may be fraught with inequities, confusion, hardship and disasters? Or be grateful to have had the opportunity to participate in this era of great change on this rapidly evolving – even swiftly tilting – planet?
Many spiritual philosophies, including Taoism, teach to “surf the wave” you’ve got, so to speak, the best Way you can. The more massive the Wave, the more rewarding our ride will be in the long run. And in order to connect as it rolls towards us with both promises of untapped potential as well as possibilities of certain destruction, one needs to be in a grateful, receiving and balanced state of mind. Gratitude begets greatness. Talk to any surfer.
Perhaps like many growing up in middle America during the 70s and 80s, I had a lot of things I took for granted. I was doted upon, encouraged and supported as so many others around the world were not, but didn’t really realize it at the time. So the first place I owe thanks is to my parents. Fortunately I can tell them that now. But I never consciously thought about gratitude on this level until my 30s, when I experienced my own radical transformation of spirit, as many have by now. It left me literally gasping with love and gratitude for the immense scope and beauty of the Multiverse I now realized I was a part of. It was a powerful and heady time, which eventually led to a book, and then a blog. We are part of a Greater Whole, with a Greater Plan, and if you’re lucky enough to have grokked that too by now, I can skip the next part. If not – sorry, I’m skipping the next part. I can’t give that experience away, even if I wanted to.
Coming out the other end of that, one of the lessons that has stuck with me is something Lao Tzu wrote in the Tao Te Ching, “he who knows enough is enough will always have enough.” Having been born into a materialistic society which seems to congratulate selfishness and immediate gratification, it’s not an easy statement to understand. Of all its possible interpretations, I believe the most powerful is that what we really need, is already within us. If we view life in the simplest of ways, with thanks for all things great and small, we will realize what abundance there really is. We don’t need fancy cars or even a refrigerator full of food to be grateful for life. Often, it’s those of the poorest of circumstances, or poorest of health, who have the sunniest dispositions. They appreciate the little joys of life, and choose to rejoice regardless of their circumstances. They are choosing love and passing it on in the world. On the other hand, the guy made miserable by a scratch on his new Jaguar will not – he will moan and complain and make his family and friends suffer as well by his state of mind. Jesus Himself taught, it’s not things, but our spirits that bring truth and enlightenment, “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God” (Matthew 19:24).
So is it possible to be grateful during bad times? To mourn the losses, and still hope for the future? I can only answer for myself, and the answer is, yes. I am grateful for the world, even in its present state: through all the war, confusion, evil people, hard times and disasters, there is still compassion, beauty, and love, not to mention the promise of Something Greater. In these most uncertain times, it is even more vitally important that we focus in such a manner. It could be our saving grace. It could be what enables us to see a Doorway into our Future, when it appears.
Don’t get me wrong – simple things are not always easy. This is a conscious choice which requires constant practice. A skill to be developed. As far away as we’ve gotten as a civilization from the understanding that we are All One, is about as far away we are from a planet in complete harmony. Gratitude is no longer a natural state of being. Perhaps long ago, ancient cultures praised that simple yet profound understanding, rather than wealth, power and ego. My husband, for example, wakes every single morning with the words, “Lord, thank you for this beautiful life, and thank you for my wonderful wife, and thank you for this day and all the blessings you pour upon me,” upon his tongue, no matter what, and he is the sunniest and most blessed person I have ever known, despite hardships he has suffered. So for some people, gratitude seems to come so easily, as if they were throwbacks to a mysterious time.
But for others, it can be challenging. Especially when much of what I research and write about – that information which I have always felt is incredibly important to pass on, to whoever is listening out there in these uncertain times – is so seemingly full of doom. It would be easy to say I never experience feelings of foreboding, or great sadness, as I bear witness to the daily news. I do. And yet, in the next moment, I am reminded that we still have an opportunity to recreate our world, one person at a time, or suddenly, as the case may be in terms of our future. Destruction is a Pathway to Creation. I often link back to that old post I wrote, It’s All Good, because – it really is.
A friend asked me the other day, as we were talking about emergency supplies, why I would want to survive if the world was ending. I thought, that was a very good question. But if you ask, I’ll tell you; I don’t believe in the end of the world. Maybe, “the end of the world as we know it”, but that’s not the end of the planet, or even our existence as a species, and on this point I stand firm. If the “worst” happens, I don’t imagine only surviving, but thriving. I see opportunity, not doom. This is the message I hope to pass on, even as the news of the day seems to center around the negative.
Yes, it’s possible that earth changes or economic upheaval could come to your town, and ours. And yes, I am concerned that people are woefully unprepared for this transition. And it is never easy to witness terrible destruction and loss of life and livelihood. But, it doesn’t stop me from being hopeful, or prepared for a better future, both physically and spiritually. I suppose, I don’t have proof; it’s just my own inner barometer of what I believe is possible for our world. And I might not have that appreciation, if I were not aware of what it means to be truly grateful for the incredible diversity of wonder and possibility, and the love and joy which is sitting right here in front of us, waiting to be chosen. But we cannot expect to participate in such a future world, if we don’t prepare ourselves now. Yes, have extra provisions nearby…but as important is our psychological, emotional and spiritual state of readiness. We can’t get to the next level in a state of panic, fear, or even doubt.
And we cannot do this alone. In Hawaii, when surfing the huge 50-75 ft waves on the North Shore, Oahu and at Jaws on Maui, you need someone to tow you in on a jet ski; to watch over you, and rescue you if you get pummeled. Fortunately there are others out there to share support and wisdom in trying times, each with their own specialties. I am fortunate enough to have a profound faith, a loving family, and an extended network of like minds. This post is the result of encouragement from friend and fellow blogger, Daniel Brenton, whose work continues to uplift and inspire, even in trying times. So I give credit to Daniel for recharging my gratitude batteries, and my thanks for his long-standing support in this strange online world. It’s nice to know there are real people out there, practicing real, useful and tangible skills, and I am happy to pay it forward.
May we all appreciate the interesting times in which we live, humming our Way to the next flower.
Floods, tornadoes, earthquakes, radar anomalies, landocanes, Comet Elenin, Gulf/Jet Stream anomalies, UFOs, December 2011 Mayan end date, zombies, and more.
If we really were surfing a swiftly tilting planet, I’d say the waves are looming large. Since my last post in January, we’ve witnessed the horrific earthquake, tsunami and ongoing nuclear meltdown in Japan, historic ongoing flooding along the Mississippi, the northern US, Canada, Australia, Brazil and Africa to mention a few, severe ongoing drought and wildfires in Texas, Europe, China and Africa, and another deadly earthquake, this time in Spain. Bizarre cracks, fissures, sinkholes, sinking islands, and landslides are appearing in various places around the globe. More volcanoes erupted including another one in Iceland, again disrupting air travel. Unexplained bird and fish deaths are still happening all over the place. Tonight, news of 100 mph winds in Scotland. Australian television aired “100 days of Disaster” awhile ago about 2011 so far – pretty incredible, but it needs an update already.
Ok, maybe this kind of thing is “cyclical” but then I think it must be a very, very, very big cycle. How about 12,900 years? Science has no way to compare this kind of historical data, in my opinion. Obviously the mainstream will continue to refuse to publicize anything other than “normality” but even a climate scientist quoted in Scientific Americansaid, “It’s a new normal and I really do think that global weirding is the best way to describe what we’re seeing.” Really?
An article from May 13 was titled, Tornadoes, floods and blizzards… U.S. is hit by a record FIVE billion-dollar weather disasters in 2011 (and it’s only May). Wonder what it is now after the unbelievable tornado storm that has hit so many US states this past week. There was even a “rare” tornado in California yesterday. As I’m writing this, there is a tornado warning in Vermont. Dr. Greg Forbes from the Weather Channel actually called the system “rare” on the air and added that we don’t normally see a supercell formation 40,000 feet high with large hail and tornadoes in Vermont. Ya think? The other night on CNN, the meteorologist pointed out the powerful counter-clockwise moving storm system that caused the week of mayhem and said it almost looked like a hurricane. In fact it did; some Youtubers and bloggers have been pointing out this “landocane” or “landicane” all week – and I found, it’s not the first time. Back in October, this new term even found its way onto mainstream news sites during that giant storm. It reminds me of a video I watched recently of a talk by former Special Forces officer John Moore, who claims to have been privy to some secret government warnings from back in the ’70s about a violent, catastrophic global shift that is to come – soon. Very soon. He’s in his sixties, and he was told it would be in his lifetime, not his kids or grandkids. In that video, he said that one of the warnings he was told to look for was hurricanes forming over land. It makes me think of The Coming Global Superstorm or The Day After Tomorrow.
As I watch the weather radars, and there are plenty of radars to watch on the Internet, it’s hard not to notice strange ring signatures, beams and other anomalies appearing ahead of the storm tracks. (Radars to watch: here, here, here, here and here for a few to start you off. Please leave links to others you find.) For instance, check out this incredible video from today over Kansas. Is it HAARP? No one knows for sure. Youtubers Dutchsinse, Patrioticspace, WaronErrorDKos, Rvermill47 and many others are continually watching and updating on these and other notable details such as radiation and chemtrails which the mainstream is not talking about. In fact as I was writing this, Dutchsinse uploaded a new video letting us know that someone alerted their Congressman about these apparent weather modification anomalies. We’d like to think – great, maybe someone will do something about it but – likely as not, we will never hear any reply. If we do, I’ll let you know (follow me on Twitter). Poor Dutch has already been harassed and threatened, had family members threatened for his work by someone claiming to work for DARPA if memory serves, and I think he had to call the FBI. It’s scary to think if you’re making note of such things you might be putting your life – and your family’s lives – on the line. Here is an article about Dutch and what he’s been doing in terms of getting the word out. A St. Louis local news station even did a spot on his independent radiation testing recently as well.
I also happened to notice this strange happening on Lake Washington a little while ago, which nagged at me for a few days until I remembered the X-Band sea-based radar had just arrived in Seattle the night before. A pretty powerful piece of machinery I wrote about back in 2008; who knows what all it really does. In that vein, I also happened across this Youtuber following the track of the super-secret X37B and the coincidence of earthquakes in its wake. Plenty of people are also still waiting for The Big One to hit the US; the New Madrid seismic zone is likely under enormous pressure with the weight of all that flood water there now. And we haven’t even started hurricane season yet.
Last year an Italian scientist, Dr. Gianluigi Zangari, released a paper that the Gulf Stream has broken – at the time it was thought it was due to the BP oil spill in the Gulf. I can’t find the original paper; the link is broken (which seems appropriate somehow). But here is one detailed explanation. Of course that influences the Jet stream and we can all see how that has been very unusual the past few months, if not longer. Dutchsinse posted this video in December 2010, noting how the weather systems were moving backwards. And it is still happening. Do your own research, and watch the radars. The Weather Channel certainly isn’t boring anymore. It’s all really very interesting; the frustrating part is, we can speculate all we want, but we may never know what is really going on. Planet X? Weather wars? HAARP? False flag? Climate change? Are the powers-that-be trying to keep a catastrophe from happening, or the opposite? Maybe it doesn’t really matter. We need to be prepared regardless. Obviously, the results are disastrous anyway.
Comet Elenin has been in the underground news quite a lot as well. Some believe it’s not a comet at all, but a brown dwarf star (Planet X?) which makes a regular swing through our galactic neighborhood every few millennia. It would explain why it is so difficult to see even through telescopes, as it is very cold (but if we start seeing two suns this summer, something in the news as I wrote my last post, heads up). This video is quite startling, as it points out the last few megaquakes (Chili, New Zealand and Japan) were on days of Elenin’s alignment with the Earth. Recently, a scientific paper from the European Royal Society was published that also mentioned Elenin in regards to earthquakes and celestial alignments. Apparently its effects are not insignificant (including, I might posit, the weather). And there are further alignments coming as the “comet” is getting closer – later this year, in late September through October, it will be extremely close – in fact some people think that around September 26-27, it could cause a pole shift here on Earth. In October/November the earth will be in its tail, which is also not good. Here is another very informative video on what could be coming later this year. Please take the time to watch these and inform yourself, whatever you tend to believe. Last October, the White House released a memorandum regarding preparations for a near-earth object collision. That in itself is pretty noteworthy. There has also been rumor that due to unexpected course changes in the comet’s trajectory and strange unidentified clusters following the comet, a Chinese scientist believes it may be guided by intelligent forces, i.e., UFOs. Something to pay attention to in terms of Sitchin’s Nibiru. And don’t forget about the sun; it’s 11-year cycle peaks in 2012, and we are still getting warnings of “potentially devastating effects” from official sources. Keep an eye on it. Spaceweather, SOHO, and SolarWatcher are recommended sites.
I thought it quite interesting to find this video clip of an old In Search Of episode from 1978 stating the Mayan calendar end date was December 24, 2011 – not December 21, 2012. If you read more of my blog you’ll see I’m not one for setting dates but, just found it worth noting. What if 2012 was a red herring, and we were all left woefully unprepared?
So, please be prepared for anything, anytime. I’ve read quite a few articles recently about demand for bunkers, shelters and dried emergency food going through the roof this year. Some companies are even running out of supplies. People are prepping. It’s a good thing. If you’ve been putting it off, do it NOW. Put some emergency gear in your car – extra water, food bars, first aid, flashlight, radio, jacket and walking shoes – really, girlfriends, please have a change of shoes in your trunk if you wear high heels. Have a whistle to call for help just in case. Have extra supplies at home too. A few months of food, and a water filter or two, wouldn’t be a bad idea; we might be prepared for food shortages and economic catastrophe as well that way, if nothing else happens. Have a place to go if the worst seems to be coming to your door. Have an emergency plan with family or friends. And think about self defense. Even the CDC warned about zombies. But really. Protect yourselves from whatever.
Standing outside tonight, waiting for my dogs to pee and watching the glittering Kona night sky, I did a double take at a star moving in the southeastern sky. I watched it for about a minute….it was very bright, moving relatively quickly, but not so fast as a shooting star, and had no tail; it had a downward sloping arc, and as it moved it faded out into the black. Satellite?
As I have repeated again and again – this information is not posted to create fear. There is already enough of that out there. And I would be pleased as punch if the next couple of years went by without another catastrophe. But I don’t think so. And being aware and prepared is the best way to avoid panic. Knowledge is power. Please find some time to center on what is most important to our existence on this planet – love, and compassion. Lean on your higher power, your loved ones and your own Knowing of what is right and true. Remember that destruction is an opportunity for creation. Discernment is an opportunity for growth. To move forward, we must, indeed we really must, work together, peaceably, and in harmony. I will be writing more about this soon.
For seven days and seven nights
Man will watch this awesome sight.
The tides will rise beyond their ken
To bite away the shores and then
A fiery dragon will cross the sky
Six times before this earth shall die
Mankind will tremble and frightened be
for the sixth heralds in this prophecy.
The great star will burn for seven days,
The cloud will cause two suns to appear:
The big mastiff will howl all night
When the great pontiff will change country.
- Nostradamus, verse C2 Q41
My last post, Spirals, Stargates, and Suspicious Sneaky-A** Strangeness, is dated exactly one year ago today, I just happened to notice. And it still pretty much says what I’ve been thinking the past 12 months. 2010 saw plenty of calamity, from earthquakes and storms, to oil spills and economic and political malfunction. 2011 has already given us a continuous stream of unusual news that may or may not portend some great changes are in store for our near future. But the task of connecting the dots, of putting together the puzzle of headlines into a complete understanding of what is really happening, is challenging. Can you see the fnord in the empty spaces between all these memes? Everything is connected in some way, of course, but are these various unusual news items part of a larger scenario, the whole truth of which we are not completely aware?
The 2012 Mayan calendar end date has had many talking not just about Apocalyptic scenarios, but a shift in consciousness, and I do believe this is already beginning to happen – at least for those paying attention. Despite my unwillingness to jump on the bandwagon of setting dates for an Apocalypse, I don’t completely disregard them either. Sometimes the force of so many psyches focused so intensely can make things happen. So I just want to reiterate that my work has always been about increasing awareness, so that when and if big changes do happen, people won’t be caught off guard. If we were prepared spiritually, psychologically, emotionally and even physically for whatever comes, there should be absolutely no need for fear or panic. And we should all be doing what we can anyway to make our world a better place, and our lives more harmonious. Going local, working together and treating each other with kindness and compassion is a great place to start, no matter where you are or how much money you have, apocalypse or no apocalypse.
Unfortunately it is clear that there will still be some very hard times for many people around the world. These days all you have to do is read the news or even look outside your door to see bizarre headlines, strange weather, unprecedented disasters or hear neighbors screaming political self-righteousness at each other. The world is koyaanisqatsi, in more ways than one, and it could get worse before it gets better. Be ready for change, pay attention, and tune in your personal discernment to determine what it could all mean, both to you and in the larger scheme. Here are some of the things I’m paying attention to.
Nearly two years ago I wrote the post 2012: A Perfect Storm? In it, I outlined some of the concerns about the 2012 solar maximum, about which we are still being warned. As far back as 2006, NASA issued an official warning that 2012 would also be “the most intense solar maximum in fifty years”. In 2010, we were again given “dire warnings” both from the U.S. and the U.K. that solar flares (or nuclear or electromagnetic attacks) could disrupt power and communications for months or even years. It’s been unusually quiet the past few years. Does that mean we’re in the set-up for a really gigantic storm, timed just right about when the Mayans might have said it would? The fact that scientists are out there warning us about this is good reason to read up on our sun, and pay attention to the news about it. To check on the sun’s daily activity, you can go to SpaceWeather.com or this site, used by ham radio operators.
A related topic also in the news is the earth’s magnetic field, which is created by currents in the earth’s core. The poles – not the geographic north and south pole, but the magnetic poles – are moving more quickly than they have been since we started recording their locations in 1590. National Geographic has been covering the story for the past few years: in 2004, Earth’s Magnetic Field is Fading (the disaster movie The Corepicked up on this, check it out). In 2008, their article Earth’s Core, Magnetic Field Changing Fast is notable because one of the geophysicists was quoted as saying, “What is so surprising is that rapid, almost sudden, changes take place in the Earth’s magnetic field.” And then in 2009, North Magnetic Pole Moving Due to Core Flux. So when you see mainstream headlines early this year talking about the speeding up of this magnetic shift, so much so that at least one airport has had to redraw its runways and controversialZodiac sign changes and the (re?) addition of Ophiuchus had many people regretting their tattoos, it’s time to perk up. Some suggest we are indeed in the midst of a magnetic polar reversal, which may or may not be part of a process that culminates in a final, sudden and potentially calamitous global event. Mainstream science insists these changes takes hundreds or thousands of years to complete, but we also know there have been at least a few sudden, worldwide extinctions. This site will start to explain some of the alternative sources which may lead us to consider the possibility of a more abrupt and drastic event. You might also be interested to read up on controversial cataclysmic [geographic] pole shift theories.
A telling indicator of magnetic changes is our earth’s magnetosphere, which is created when the earth’s magnetic field interacts with charged particles, such as the solar wind. It protects the earth from deadly solar radiation and without it, life on our planet would not be possible. Normally it is shaped like a teardrop, with the tail end blowing away from the sun. During times of polar reversals, it gets tangled and twisted. I found a site which posts real-time simulated images of the Earth’s magnetosphere. When you look at a video of recent images, it does look like it is twisting and tangling, which scientists say is a sign that a reversal could be underway. It reminds me of a few past articles, including Giant Breach in Earth’s Magnetic Field Discovered. Also, remember the Danish study from 2009 which concluded that the earth’s magnetic field impacts our climate.
Are the magnetic field changes related to the other unusual news, the sudden and unexplained deaths of thousands of birds, fish and other animals continuing to happen worldwide? Maybe. But seems to me they might then just get lost – not die from “massive trauma”. Other speculations have included some sort of man made electromagnetic cause for this “aflockalypse”. If you don’t know about HAARP yet, it might be time to go down that rabbit hole. It’s a giant ionospheric heater, which the government claims is a harmless academic project, but others suspect has scary military applications and potentially dangerous effects on our planet. There are rumored to be HAARP installations in many of the areas where these unexplained animal deaths are occurring worldwide, including Arkansas, which also happens to be on the New Madrid faultline. In 1811, almost exactly 200 years ago, there were several huge earthquakes there in the mid-section of the U.S., and scientists believe it could happen again any time. Mike over at Patrioticspace points out on this video that an upcoming FEMA training drill (NLE 2011) is being planned for that area this coming May to prepare for such an event. Over the years there has been suspicion about the “coincidences” surrounding the timing of FEMA’s (and other governments) “drills” and subsequent disasters – 9/11, Katrina, the Haiti earthquake and 7/7, for some examples. Seems like they just happen to be there when stuff happens, which is strange in itself. So some people – including Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez by the way – believe that our government, and perhaps others as well, is deliberately causing some of these events using technologies like HAARP. It’s also possible they are using such technologies to try to prevent something big they know is coming. (By the way, talk about unexplained – ever heard of the Dyatlov Pass incident? Wonder what Tesla might say about all this…)
Either way it’s probably not good to be fooling with Mother Nature, especially on a scale involving the earth’s ionosphere. Many have likely already seen the article published in 1998 by the Russian scientist Dr. Alexey N. Dmitriev called Planetophysical State Of The Earth And Life which talks about the Earth’s ongoing magnetic changes being irreversible. In it he mentions man-made effects, “Earth’s ability to adapt to these external actions and transferences is aggravated, made more difficult, by the technogeneous alterations we have made to the natural quality or state of our geological-geophysical environment. Our planet Earth is now in the process of a dramatic transformation by altering the electromagnetic skeleton through a shift of the geomagnetic field poles…”
It’s not clear which technogeneous effects he is referring to, but when you’re talking about magnetic fields, HAARP sure comes to mind. Even if they accidentally caused all those birds to die trying to prevent the huge earthquake there we all know is coming one of these days, would they tell the public? Probably not. By the way, in investigating the New Madrid earthquake potential I came across this FEMA procurement site post from January 20, 2011, “The purpose of this Request for Information is to identify sources of supply for meals in support of disaster relief efforts based on a catastrophic disaster event within the New Madrid Fault System for a survivor population of 7M to be utilized for the sustainment of life during a 10-day period of operations…All meals/kits must have 36 months of remaining shelf life upon delivery.“ Why would they requisition that much food if NLE 2011 is only a drill? Patrioticspace has a great update on all of this that is worth watching, and he suspects the geophysical instability in the region could have been made worse by last year’s Gulf oil spill/drill. In coordination with NLE 2011, the authorities are also planning “The Great Central U.S. Shake Out” to help citizens get prepare for earthquakes. So if you live in the New Madrid seismic zone (or any earthquake zone for that matter), you might want to get your earthquake kit ready, just in case.
Then there’s the weird debate lately that something seems wrong with the moon, that it has tilted. Not really sure about that one but it seems to fit with the general sense that things seem out of balance. Searing summers and frigid winters break records every year, gigantic earthquakes kill hundreds of thousands, and unbelievable floods and storms all over the world round it all out to the extent that many people are not even shocked or surprised by natural disasters anymore, even though 2010 was the worst year yet. Disaster has become the status quo – that is perhaps until ARkstorm, for which by the way they are also planning a disaster training drill.
Another strange item to consider is the report that the sun rose two days early in Greenland this year – on 1/11/11, instead of 1/13/11 as expected. A little more investigation revealed some controversy there. Mainstream science, as in this article, says this is impossible, because it would mean the earth-sun orbital parameters have changed and they insist, this has not happened. But in the linked article, Ice Ages Blamed on Tilting Earth, we learn that the tilt, or wobble, of our planet has changed throughout the ages. A little more investigation reveals that the earthquake/tsunami of 2004 actually changed the planet’s shape, and shaved a few microseconds off our day. The earthquake in Chile altered our earth’s rotation, and took a few more tiny moments from us. So, official data notwithstanding, it might not be that far off to imagine, something could change, has changed, or is even changing rapidly, with our earth, it’s magnetic field, rotation and/or tilt.
The world’s volcanoes are getting busier and busier as well. Last year Der Spiegel published an article warning of an impending mega-eruption of Indonesia’s Mount Merapi. Recently another disconcerting piece of news about the Yellowstone supervolcano bulging, as the magma chamber there continues to swell. When physicist Michio Kaku is out and about talking about pending catastrophes, as he has done before warning about monster solar storms, I pay attention; recently he discussed massive earthquakes and volcanic eruptions which could destroy any one of several major cities in the near future. Even more recently, here he is talking specifically about the recent bulge at Yellowstone. Interesting timing.
Does any of this have to do with “Planet X” (which I actually believe, if it exists, is not a planet but actually a star, perhaps even a companion to our sun)? You can find all kinds of information on the ancient myth and lore of this enigmatic “lost” star or planet and the destruction it brings as it swings through our solar system, though it is not accepted by mainstream science, at least as far as we know. But let’s face it – would you tell 6 billion people that the earth was about to be rocked upside down overnight a week from Thursday? Probably not. So, just because it’s debunked and ignored by the mainstream doesn’t mean that a large perturber blowing by every few millennia isn’t the reason for all the magnetic weirdness, earthquakes and volcanoes. Every now and then I come across articles that ring a bell for Planet X. Giant Stealth Planet May Explain Rain of Comets from Solar System’s Edge is not comforting news in light of the huge meteorites seen around the world lately. How about this one, “A new set of all-sky maps from NASA’s Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) shows that conditions at the edge of our Solar System are more dynamic than first thought.” Ya think?
Knowing this, I definitely perked up when I heard in the mainstream news that we could be seeing what look like two suns in our skies for a while, if the red giant Betelgeuse goes supernova. But even though shock-value headlines declare this as a possibility by 2012, perhaps feeding into the Mayan calendar end date hysteria, in reality it could happen anytime in the next thousand(s) years, which led some to suggest it could be a cover story for Planet X. Space.com (and others) pretty much debunked the idea that Betelgeuse would go supernova anytime soon, true or not. So it is interesting that some mainstream sources seemed happy enough to run with the story again even though it already kinda made news and was also debunked a few months ago as a result of a discussion on a forum. Maybe someone out there knows what’s really going on, and wants to give us an “acceptable” explanation for something that might cause worldwide panic otherwise, and this seemed like a pretty good one. Or, maybe we really do have something to worry about – here is a scary take on it at Rense from back in 2009.
Betelgeuse, one of the brightest stars we know of, is a red giant in Orion, which is notable in terms of Planet X theories because the lore warns about seeing a red object in the sky coming from the direction of Orion. Scientists seem to have a hard time measuring both its size and distance – it seems to bulge and vary in brightness, and researchers believe “it it is likely that Betelgeuse has not always had its current motion through space and has changed course at one time or another…” So, intriguing, but certainly not a sure thing in terms of Planet X. The famous Washington Post article from 1983 quoted by many including myself in Planet X discussions did say an object in question was found in the neighborhood of Orion, but it certainly wasn’t a red giant they found. That was a brown dwarf, a type of star which is so dim its distance is difficult to establish, and even to detect in the first place. (Did you know the mythology about Orion and Ophiuchus by the way?) One other note I found interesting on Wiki, “In August Derleth’s short story “The Dweller in the Darkness” set in H.P. Lovecrafts’s Cthulhu Mythos, Betelgeuse is the home of the ‘benign’ Elder Gods.” Well how about that. Nibiru anyone? Wonder what Zecharia Sitchin would say about that if he was still around.
The idea of seeing two suns is not a new one, even aside from Star Wars mystique. I found an old thread on ATS talking about this back in 2007. I got chills when I was reminded of Share International’s press release regarding the timing of Maitreya’s appearance, “In the very near future a large, bright star will appear in the sky visible to all throughout the world – night and day.” Beetlejuice indeed. Or how about this prophetic warning from the “Blessed Mother” in 2008 about two suns? Cheery. Here is a website with a bunch of people dreaming about two suns and talking about various prophecies. Here is one of likely many Biblical takes on it. How about another completely different interpretation from Goro Adachi from back in 2000? Nostradamus of course (see top), despite the difficulty in interpretation. The Kolbrin Bible people have a lot of interesting information out. Many have filmed what they believe looks like two suns in our skies and posted on YouTube. According to this site, the Freemasons are no strangers to the two suns theme in their writings and symbologies. Andy Lloyd wrote about the two suns of the Incas in terms of his Dark Star theory. Velikovsky of course with his Worlds in Collision. And I’m sure there are many more.
So, the sun is set to be dangerously active in the next year or two, and our magnetic field is shifting so quickly, many believe we are in the middle of a polar reversal. That means the normal protection we have from the sun could be unreliable. Those two things should be considered in tandem, for it does not bode well, whether you suspect Planet X or not. But if we actually do start seeing two suns, it might be time to start connecting the dots. One other thought; if a big quake rocks the New Madrid fault, what effect might it have on Yellowstone, or vice versa?
I think the powers-that-be are perfectly aware of what could be coming. That’s why there are hundreds (or thousands) of underground corporate, government, and military bunkers all over the world, and why they are saving documents, seeds and establishing continuity of government procedures. And why we are being kept busy with the misery of political hotbeds and economic meltdown: pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. And why we’re being entertained with so many disaster movies: see, this is fiction, it couldn’t happen; or, see, you should be aware, this could happen, but we’re not going to tell you.
And it could. I found an interesting post at Montalk, who doesn’t post very often anymore either, that the mention of neutrinos in the Betelgeuse/two suns thing in the news recently might not be the good news scientists are hoping for; he suggests it could actually be a problem similar to that which was fictionalized in the movie 2012. Well, huh. Anything to do with this mystery particle? Food for thought.
With the dawn of 2011, the 2012 Mayan calendar end date looms tantalizingly – or frighteningly, depending on your perspective – within reach. Whether December 22, 2012 will be just another day, or whether we will be in the midst of global cataclysm remains to be seen (unless you’re Harold Camping, who used the Bible to predict the end of the world for October 21, 2011 – and Judgment Day for May 21, 2011, interesting if only for its confluence with the New Madrid FEMA drill).
I am not alone in my suspicions that there is a lot going on behind the scenes, veiled in secrecy as it perhaps always has been. Suspicious global cabals have been the subject of many of my own articles as well as thousands of others across the Internet and in book stores. A surprising recent article in The Economist attempted to casually “out” these organizations and call them harmless, though their too-little-too-late explanation was far less entertaining than the commentsposted. I will certainly be paying attention to the ongoing revolution in the Middle East, the timing of which is also of note. Is it truly a grass-roots movement for freedom? As Americans, we naturally welcome democratization and support the people’s choice, and mourn those killed or injured in the fight for liberty. But if we are aware of the powers-that-be and their agendas, we might also not be surprised to hear this report from RT, which suggests otherwise, citing Wikileaks. Is this another move towards “totalitarian democracy” as suggested by William Engdahl? Could democracy in these Arab countries, whose public opinion is heavily anti-Israel and anti-U.S., actually lead to increased tensions? Whether the global elite stand to benefit from this at all, or whether it could blow up in everyone’s faces, remains to be seen.
We know there are things that we know, things that we don’t know, and things that we don’t know we don’t know. So, perhaps there are some who know those things that we don’t know that we don’t know, George Lucas notwithstanding. And what would they do with this knowledge? A lot of debunking for one thing. Can’t have a society of panicked people all quitting their jobs and moving to a cabin in the woods with their hunting rifles and an assortment of seeds. Civilization – I should say, their high-tech, low-love version of civilization anyway – would fade away and then they’d lose their power. And clearly if we all knew what we didn’t know we didn’t know, the powers-that-be wouldn’t be so powerful anymore. No one would fight in their wars, and we’d never need to buy gasoline or pharmaceuticals, for example.
And as many prepare for and debate the topic of disclosure, we are also bombardedwith TV shows and films about alien invasion of one sort or another. Other than Wikileaks, the latest UFO rumors are that the U.S. is set to announce their ongoing relationship with extraterrestrials in a kind of E.T.-space-race with the Chinese. Or maybe “They” are here to help us deal with the chaos of this coming shift…or take advantage of it, as the case may be. Trouble is, hard for most people to distinguish truth from non truth. And sometimes people just don’t want to know. They would rather be right. For those aware of Biblical End Times prophecies which supposedly necessitate the rebuilding of the Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem where the Dome of the Rock currently stands, you might be interested to know that recently several videos surfaced of a strange light hovering right over the Dome on January 28, 2011. This one was pretty wild. Is it real?
If there are things we don’t know that we don’t know, maybe it’s also true that there are things that we don’t know that we do know. I believe many people are subconsciously attuned to some kind of internal messaging system. If they are listening, many of them are going back to basics, learning skills not used for generations, thinking locally and sustainably. Perhaps they are also preparing for something – perhaps they might not really know why, or for when, or if they do maybe they might not really believe anything big like that could possibly happen to them – but they do it anyway. Maybe they also are beginning to realize that our civilization can only really survive if people learn to live in harmony with each other and the planet, and that that will have to happen regardless of whether or not there is an Apocalypse. There seems to be a low, rumbling wave of change, growth and understanding rising from the ashes that have not even fallen yet.
Sometimes, unknown knowledge sits at the very root of our existence on planet Earth. Perhaps the Earth gives a little wobble now and then to remind us what we’re supposed to know.
To change the world as a Surfer of the Tao is to ride light energy and heavy energy simultaneously; as one lifts up, the other presses down, and that resistance gives us the impetus to project ourselves forward, like squeezing a watermelon pit between your fingers and shooting it.
We can use technology to learn and survive, even as it is destroying us. We can use what we don’t know to fill in the empty spaces. We can use destruction as an opportunity to create anew.
Life is not in iPods, 3D movies, video games, cell phone apps, or on television. It’s not in the way we argue, accuse, and hate. Life is not anger, cruelty and division. Life is not harshness of tone, unwillingness to forgive, intolerance, or lack of understanding. Life is not rote knowledge, or trivia.
Life is in the trees, the flowers, rocks, sky and clouds. It’s in the depths of our souls, our atoms, our breath. It’s in the way we love, smile and laugh. Life is forgiveness, compassion and service, generosity of spirit and selfless creativity. Life is the Knowledge and Appreciation of Life.
Some are finding their way back to Life. Some never left in the first place. Many have a long, long ways to go. Some will never even see there is a Way of Life.
Some easily find knowledge in a blade of grass; others must first fight and struggle their entire lives only to discover in their dying breath how simple it all really is.
Be well my friends. Be in the Know, be safe, be prepared, be open and clear.
Allow things to be as they are without troubling your peace of mind. Everything is as meant to be. The Tao is a conscious, living field of energy and rooted in love, so teach all great spiritual masters. One can connect and Know this independently. No matter how bad or chaotic things seem – it’s all good, and it’s all in control.
In the synchronous sequence of events that are unfolding, there are no accidents; there are no coincidences. React with thoughtfulness, brevity, calmness, righteousness and love when a situation presents itself. Practice to leave anger, fear, worry, anxiety, violence and frustration behind. Letting go of attachment means learning how to not react with negative emotion. Surf the Tao. Allow life to carry you, without perpetuating dissonance. It is a difficult but imperative skill, and a delicate balance.
Some things which seem bad, hurtful or unfair – even all seemingly great underlying evils – will be used in the creation of something new; something wholly without these negative distractions. As if all negativities we currently experience are being crystallized in clear structure now, in order to be sorted out for the great shattering to come. Destruction often necessarily precedes creation. So, be informed, yet be at peace.
It could mean our existence in the coming years will become more and more difficult, as the noose continues to tighten.
It could mean it’s all an illusion and we would slip silently and gloriously into the next resonant octave.
Prepare your home and family; prepare your inner self. This is being a true warrior. Stand strong within and without. Do not fear physical death, and don’t fall victim to the lies. This kind of faith takes practice, as we are so conditioned to fear.
I’ve continued to follow news and events (follow my occasional links at Twitter) though the need to comment seems less and less pressing. By now the fundamental truths have become obvious to those with ears to hear. Those things which cause confusion and ripples in the sea of serenity are working against the flow. Pay attention. Truth is simple.
I continue to work towards inner and outer preparations myself. Often there is no one right answer, aside from love.
After having written a book and blogged for nearly four years now, and found myself now to be much preoccupied with the reality of living with the world in its present precarious state, I really wonder how much more I have to say here. At what point has one proved their thesis on a blog such as mine? The state of our world is nearly perfectly aligned with many ancient prophecies. It’s now a matter of living through the transitions as they come, and they are already present in various incarnations. 2012 doesn’t have to come and go to know we are in for some big changes.
Personally life has not gotten easier; I know many may feel the same way. Economic hardship has hit us all one way or another. It’s been useful to find so much support in terms of raising consciousness, because at the same time, the world is sure making it more challenging to overcome. At least we know we are not alone, and I have great appreciation for all the great thinkers and writers I have met online.
But the actual living through it, in a nutshell, is what Surfing the Tao is all about. Like I’ve said many times, if I had perfected the living of this philosophy myself, I wouldn’t be here anymore to write about it. I go through my own daily ups and downs, and am grateful for the support of friends and family – believe me. I couldn’t do it all without them. You know who you are.
I hate to admit that Twitter is about all I have time for these days – that 140 character limit makes it easy for me to get a few headlines and thoughts out, without the hours spent writing, editing, and searching links. Still, I go days without signing in even there. It’s unfortunate, I know. But there it is.
I am discovering what it means to grow vegetables in Hawaii and battle the bugs. And it’s hard to discover that some of your dear chickens are roosters, instead of the egg-layers you signed up for. It’s a learning curve, to be sure, and I’m grateful for the lessons – I also recognize these are important lessons that deserve my time right now, and along with all the other normal daily dilemmas, the schedule is simply overbooked.
The job situation is too much to even write about. It’s agonizing on so many levels, and not just for me, but for people close to me as well. Many of us are discovering how time seems much, much shorter than it used to; the days flash by and our creative projects languish. If there’s not a quickening currently afoot, I’ll be a monkey’s uncle.
Meanwhile I am still somewhat languidly watching the headlines, and not being surprised at anything. We are living in the times I was warned about many times over. Behind the scenes, the p-t-b are busy. Frankly I’m even a little bored by it. Yes, our food is contaminated. Our drug and oil industries are corrupt. Politicians are not who they claim to be. Powerful control mechanisms, such as mind and weather control, are no longer only the realm of conspiracy theorists. Wars and catastrophic earth changes loom on the horizon. Bizarre synchronicities abound. The eschaton is being immanentized. Story at 11. Moving along.
I do sometimes have moments of panic, that I’m not being present enough for those who might need more support during these times. But that doesn’t mean the bad guys have won – far from it. The good guys have already won, but we need to live through it right now. In other words; once you’ve educated yourself on the Truth, step back, cease the panic, and take stock. Love is the only thing that will truly matter in the end. And – til I’m blue in the face – it’s all good.
I, as many others, have years of work behind me, a book even, so I’ve done my part, as best I could. Read my archives. And I’m not disappearing altogether. When more sh-t hits the fan I will be here to comment and advise; that is, if there still is an Internet at that point. But right now, I have to concentrate on my family, my livelihood, my own immediate reality. Perhaps it’s what we should all be doing right now. Get up from the computer, take a look around and wonder what you would do if the power went out – permanently. Even if it doesn’t, you would be well-prepared not only for emergencies, but in your own personal development and relationships. At some point we must all realize that the next step takes place within ourselves.
I have had my own set of personal warnings. How about you?
The Master does nothing, yet he leaves nothing undone.
