Do you have a metaphysical viewpoint or insight into world politics or world events? Keep your comments limited to a metaphysical perspective, rather than bashing political parties, leaders or others' beliefs that are the same as yours. What does it all mean on a grander scale? What is the big picture? How might "bad" things turn out to be positive after all, and cause spiritual growth in humanity?

I actually find that world events are intriguing, and watching how mass consciousness works as an entity unto itself is fascinating. I am wondering what in humanity has drawn a year so full of disaster to ourselves, there is the Tsunami, Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Rita, Hurricane (?) in the southern gulf of Mexico, the earthquake in Pakistan, and probably countless other smaller diasters that didn't get quite so much news coverage... I don't remember a year when so much has happened in such a short period of time. Is there something in the mass consciousness that is creating a reality of disasters? Are we creating it ourselves in some way? Will these disasters serve to "wake us up?" Are these disasters part of the "quickening" that is predicted to happen in humanity?
I try to look at it from a positive angle, where the disasters are giving people a chance to exercise their compassion for others, or using these events as triggers to realize that life is fragile and that we should live every moment as it comes for it could be our last, and become more aware. These disasters are showing that we are more dependent on each other than we thought before, and that the government isn't necessarily equipped to rescue us, so we must be helpful to each other. Most of the people rescued in New Orleans were rescued and fed by private citizens with boats, and it was those helpful souls who did the most groundwork when it really counted...
Anyhoo, just some thoughts...

I think the world is in some kind of quickening process too. And if you think about it, there is a higher poplulation here on the planet than there ever was before, so perhaps everyone and anyone who has ever been involved with the Earth plane is here to see the show go down! After all, it has been being predicted for thousands of years that some kind of showdown would happen, so is this it? Are we in the righ time zone for it? It seems to me just by the logic that the poplulation is so large that something has got to happen!

I do not know how it is else where but here the cities are corrupt.My sister worked for the local police in the records bureau.Without telling the whole sorted story. The city froze her out of her job so she sued. The cheif of police wanted her to go with the program even though it was illegal.I will give you some examples.Expungements. If you dont know what they are I will tell you.If you get arrested and it turns out they were wrong you can go in front of the judge and get your records expunged. if the judge issue a expungement the police are supposed to take your fingerprints(the original)and give them to you. Only thats not what they do. They copy all your records including fingerprintsand they keep a copy.So if you go years later and get a records check you might not get the job because your imformation that souldn't be there comes up.This may seem small compared to the big picture, but all the cities im my area are battling corruption.All the new upcoming election seem to be basing their campaign on integrity and ethics. We are tired of greed.All i know is people are sick of outrageous spending.My sister lost her job because she stood up for the people of our community.She is going to run next election and I personally hopes she wins for the peoples sake. I think this kind of thing is happening all over america.The cities policies have to change.abuse of power is a big thing today.In our town the tyrant was the cheif of police.We finally got rid of him. I took 5 lawsuits. MY sister sued under the whistleblowers act. she was a true whistleblower.The greed has to come to an end. but accountability for our officials i think is around the corner.It is difficult to coment on the world view at this time because I would like to see some new directions here first. It is difficult to tell others how run their affairs when our is so corruopt.

I believe that it is going to get a lot worse before it gets better, for it seems like humans have to hit bottom first before they wake up. In the meantime, we are supposed to become as enlightened as we possibly can, and help others do the same. I am just trying to focus on being in the present moment and doing what I can to make the world a better place in my little corner of the universe! I figure that's all any of us can do.

I was in hurricane Rita and Ike, still have some PTS form Rita, but in the weeks after both storms I witnessed how everyone going through this, no electricity, food/water shortage, the loss of homes and lives, everyone worked together with such great compassion and love. We all worked together to get through it, even neighbors who we've lived by for 30 years and never met. We made sure everyone had food and water, helped each other clean up, and helped most keep their sanity in such a scary time. It's horrible that it took and takes such bad things to bring us together like we should already be, but the love and compassion for others is there when brought to light, with of course the exception of the people who are out for themselves only.

In one of our lessons at UMS (Predictions) The author stated "The world may end, it may not." And as we have learned that it really doesn't make a great deal of difference to us we will survive at any rate. WE are eternal spiritual beings and cannot die.
The situation as I see it is that if enough people think something will occur, it simply will. We are all connected as part of The All That Is. His concsiousness created us and by doing so connected us one to another. Our thoughts become things and the Law of Attraction works each and everytime. In addition to that, nothing happens by chance.
The earth may change and civilizations come and go. There are those here now who lived in Atlantis. There are those who have lived in many different eras and locations. We are at the edge of a new awakening a new age of understanding. Remain calm, for if is truly the end times we can know that we will be better for it.

More species have died than now currently survive. Many have been and now are again. I am a new soul but a very old spirit. I will go on for many more experiences. I will be making new friends as well as renewing old ones. The circle of life moves in and out of the universal ether. We pass from one to the next in a blink of the Almighty's eye.
"In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return." and return and return. Many have been and will be again.

I believe that there is no real death... only change. When we lose Earth, we will have many millions of other planets to dwell on, to experience if we so choose. That is if.... we choose.
Nobody has a set fate.... everyone has free will. Even after leaving (graduating) Earth.
I also believe there is no such thing as failing. For it's ourselves that will judge our own self, until we don't. I may forget some, but forgiveness is just an illusion that happens when it finally feels better, enough to let it go.

Jill, Rose and I had a discussion this very morning about such things. It was Zennia who told me to tell the people that nothing will happen in December 2012. The problem arises that in a world of connected peoples (as we are all made of universal materials), will only be affected by their own thoughts.
As Seth stated in "The Individual and the Nature of Mass Events" "Inner reality and private experience give birth to all mass events. Man cannot disentangle himself from the natural context of his physical life. His culture, his religion, his psychologies, and his psychological nature together form the context within which both private and mass events occur. .....What is the relationship between the individual and the gigantic mass motions of nature, of government, or even religion? What about mass conversions? Mass hysteria? Mass healings, mass murders, and the individual?"
As an example, our media can often play on our subconscious mind. The media says it's time to stock up on your favorite cold and flu medicine. That thought prompts us to recall, "yes, by golly, it is that time of year that I become sick" and sick you will be. Your body has the ability to fend for itself. However it is by placing that thought in your subconscious that the drug companies relie upon to make millions od dollars. By playing with your subconscious minds.
In that same vein, we are told by some that 2012 will create a situation of mass changes upon the earth. This is rubbish and if we buy into it, then yes, perhaps we can cause mass hysteria. Thoughts become things.
At this time Seth is busy working on this very issue and doing his best to communicate with those who have ears to hear. Dear friend Jill, the earth is scheduled to go on for many thousands of years.
You are correct in the belief that we don't exactly fail, it is more like getting it right. If we don't suceed in this life experience, we get to try again. It is much like an earlier thread in which (don't recall who) stated the our being on earth is much like a school.
For those of you who are not aware of Zennia, He is a nonphysical entity, in fact my wifes's spirit guide. Much more in fact that he is The Master OF All Things. I have been told that we of the human species are only about half way thriough our development, that equates to several more million years to the finish line. That of course means that we will obviously need earth to accomplish the feat.

Christine, In a brief sumation, there is nothing wrong with the earth. It is doing what the earth does. It builds up emense heat and pressure and by doing so must find ways to relieve said pressure. This has been a process that has been going on since it's creation. Now, the world has become a much smaller place, a global village if you will. News travels not by word of mouth but by the internet. Consequently, an earthquake in china a hundred years ago would not be known for perhaps months.
This has been told to me by my spiritual mentor (Zennia The Master Of All Things). He tends to simplify things or bring it to our level of understanding. My wife channels Zennia as well as others, of course as Zennia is my wife's spirit guide. He will be making his presense known in the not to distant future.

The Universe (with our participatory input) is unfolding according to it's own needs. That unfolding creates possibilities - it creates conditions (much like we have right now - according to our weather reports the conditions are right for severe weather this afternoon. That is not a prediction of a severe storm, only a statement of conditions) - we respond to those possibilities and conditions through free will, with our individual actions.
Politics and World Events are part of that unfolding.

"there is nothing wrong with the earth. It is doing what the earth does."
Not in a million years is the earth doing what the earth does. We are our own executioners. All the Doctors and Doctoresses of Goodvibes are not going to change that. In my view, we need to realize the essence of our existence, which is energetic and to realize that when this is all but a bunch of ashes and dust, we will be essentially the same..just in another movement of place and time. We did not originate here....and we shall not end here. We are special, in that our journey takes us to our creation; and we become one with that. We are Homo Sapienses......we try to place ourselves in line with the other Homo speciations, such as Habilus, Erectus etc.; and even try to differentiate ourselves form Neanderthal. There is not too much difference from Neanderthal and some classifications as erectus and africanus....I think we guess almost all the time as to who is who. BUT, homo sapiens are different in so many ways that I am surprised that most investigators do not readily see it. The difference is not evolutionary...it is extraordinary.
Leo, look at your image. The Egyptians had a fairly stable society and domain for close to SIX THOUSAND years (I'll grant you about 50 years for the Akhneton heresy period). No other society has lasted as cohesively for as long as that....none...zero.....zilch....no Greeks, no Romans, no Brits....none as long as the Egyptians.
They lasted because of many historical factors, but they also lasted because of outside intervention...perhaps divine intervention. Artists draw what they can "see" and the Egyptian artists drew EXACTLY what they saw!

Marty, We aint going anywhere soon. I've recently read a book that pretty much ties together what you've said. It's "The Science of God" by Gerald L. Schroeder, if you haven't read it, I'd put it on top of all the other books you've amassed. Schroeder is a physicist and a biblical scholar, he says that "current findings of biochemists, paleontlolgists and physicists arguing that the latest science and a close reading of the bible are not just compatible but interdependent." I found it to be an extrodinary read.

Only in my opinion the earth has a body as we do and that which created all gave the earth the same capabilities as we human to cleanse itself. After all the destruction we have caused with chemicals, CO2, ect..., ect. I truly believe the earth is doing what is natural to keep itself as clean as it possibly can, and can't have much regard for us in that process. We have not been able to help the earth cleanse herself for we have not attained that level of consciousness yet. Normal tornados, earthquakes, and tsunamis would still happen for normal cleansing but probably not as often maybe never come the day we understand a butterfly effect. (A butterfly flaps its wing in Peking and we have rain instead of sun). Full consciousness guided would probably bring the degree of weather of the mass consciousness. In many ancient writings though it speaks of planets and stars being greater beings than we understand and earth seems to be our mother as we all call it. And remember when Christ was angered by the apostles fear of the storm when he needed to sleep, Christ said peace and was one with the earth and the storm in one word? Just a guess though.

Again (for Paul) but new to Lil Wulf, I go back to the dinosaurs which dominated this planet for 50-60 MILLION years. During that time, the planet was not always in a state of equilibrium, but it was fairly stable. The big guys adapted to the environment, and, as Evolution dictates, did not change very much since there were no environmental challenges great enough to force the selective process of survival of the fittest and survival of the adaptable while creating strong gene pools for rapid reproduction.
It was cataclysm that ended Godzilla, Mothra and Rodan's rule.....certainly not the Japanese Army and not the fluttering of the wings of a Japanese beetle.
MHO is that the wings of the butterfly are most likely not the cause of even a tiny part of what happens in this world. My deeply regretful suspicion is that WE are the cause of most, if not all, of this world's ills.

As you well know(?) I have argued with Aqua on this precise theme on more than one occasion. The astrology that I understand, from an education provided by the Rosicrucians accurately predicted the Aquarian age to be exactly what is happening today. And, I think I posted the names of prominent (but unpopular) astrologers who agreed with me.
I am truly sorry that it offends many who come to this website and discussion board as they might rather sing "Let the Sun Shine" and consult internet astrologers and even learn to parrot a very misinformed concept of astrology as it relates to the Aquarian Age.
We are all free to believe as we want, but the stars do NOT lie. They are what they are.....and even if we do not like it...there is not a d(*& thing we can do about it.
As a side comment, folks can believe or not believe in mankind generated climate change. But, it really doesn't mean a hill of beans and a month of Sundays at this point. WE have caused a set of conditions to occur that HAS changed our climate and we are only seeing slight results of what we did. We won't feel the full effects and even the youngest of our posters won't think to much of it. But, there will be catastrophic changes and, as I have said before, there is not a D(*& thing we can do about it.....it is irreversible.....future planet evolution will base itself on the new dynamic that WE created.

Greets and Meets to all:
Driving along home in Koko-san (my 2006 Toyotah Corollah, whose killer airbags have been remediated, rehabilitated, refurbished, rebuffed, retooled and reschooled as to their proper role and function in society and in an automobile) a song by a group from Guilford, Surrey, Jolly Olde England ( ya see, when you add an e at the end of old, it makes it more old than it was before it was just plain old----sorta like a shoppe is better than a shop---it don't rate with me if it ain't got that e) whose title is somewhat like "I Think I'm Turning Japanese" sung by The Vapors; all of this made me think of Paul's post and his words "and being kind to one another".
Externally, Japan is a mess; but internally Japan is a fairly successful society as compared to other societies, in particular the United Space. I had to look at the reason why and it slapped me in my historian face. If anyone cares to notice, most Japanese are Japanese. As a matta-o-fac, the overwhelming majority of Japanese are Japanese. The diversity officers at Nippon universities suffer from terminal boredom simply because there just isn't very much diversity in Japan. So, folks tend to get along and be kind to one another since they ALL share the same concepts and values.
Now, let's take just a quick look at the Ewe Knighted Stakes of A-mare-ick-a, a country where no one is American, even the Native Americans (since they came from Asia major/minor across a land bridge in olde times...which means a long time ago since old has a e on the end. In my country, the Eastern Dalmatians hate the Americon system since "we" (and no one knows who the we is truly composed of) don't respect the Eastern Dalmatian custom of wearing yellow bloomers while darting in and out of traffic. What makes matters worse, is we pass laws that to even think that the Eastern Dalmatians are not exactly trying to fit in by doing what they do is a CRIME and the thinker should be punished and then repent by wearing yellow bloomers while darting in and out of traffic. IN THE MEANTIME, what no one has realized is that the Western Dalmatians are even more pissed at us Amerikans because we are paying so much attention to and catering to the Eastern Dalmatians, whom the Western guys find abhorrent since they believe in Mal Torme as their supreme big bad God, while the Eastern Dalmatians just think that the God is not so big, bad and supreme but just sings insipid songs.
The Japanese don't have such problems as they just really and truly do not have a whole lot of Dalmatians, either Eastern or Western or even Central-which is a whole other set of social problems....since they like to emphasize things being discussed by farting. This has caused the Brits lot's of problems unless they all are on double decker buses, since you can hop up to the top and be in fresh air. But, if you are in a little council bus with a bunch of Central Dalmatians, you have a "bother" as the Brits are wont to say. Any of the passengers would gladly take two Pakis, a Pole, one and 1/2 Estonians but NO Romanians for the Central Dallys. The Brits don't want the Romanians since EVERYONE from Romania is a gypsy, notwithstanding the fact that the Gypsys come from India and speak an indecipherable language whereas the Romanians were (and many still are since news travels slowly) part of the Roman empire and speak a Latin based language.
Thus, with the passing of recent events, including the end of an abysmal presidential reign by Baruch O'Bama (why we ever elected a Jewish Irish guy I will never know) and the new Prez with the hair Fez, I have realized that my darkest thoughts are most likely true.....and that is.......
People really don't like each other UNLESS they are somehow the same. To say that we are all human, or that all our lives matter does NOT foster friendship, compassion and understanding. People actually don't want to understand each other, what they want is for others to act and think the same as they do.
You may say, Oh Marty, give us proof of what you say.....and I will.....even if you didn't say that.....
There were demonstrations to rename the stadium at the U I work for (don't fret, the University of Metaphysical Sciences stadium is not under attack-all events will go on as scheduled) because the person who it was named for was President of the U while there was a policy of segregation. The stus who are the protestors ALL gather, sit and congregate by themselves to this day when there is no and hasn't been any segregation and all have been free to integrate. BUT, the other homogenous groups of stus ALL gather, sit and congregate together likewise. Why? Because love for each other is a myth and not a reality except in the misunderstanding of the Aquarian Age, for which I cannot quickly forgive astrologers who should have been brave enough to speak up, instead of copping bucks on the Internet.
There is a universal justice, though.....at least for those students who protest the lack of cultural sensitivity.....the U is planning on admitting at least a hundred Central Dalmatian students AND the U is signing a contract with Tacoh Belle to be the food service vendor. When those Central Dalmatians get to digesting those Tacoh Belle Crispy Doritah Supersize Supremos and exercise their Dalmatian rights of expression, we will see how much love for fellow human kind other groups have.......
In closing, Paul is witnessing a miracle.....I AGREE in a very basic way with Aqua, as much as I could and can understand her.......as she has imparted to me that things will be the way they will be until there is an evolution of mankind.....I actually am starting to see that that is true. HOWEVER, I will not stop fighting for folks to realize that we are all in the same desperate boat, and that we need not love each other, but we do need to get along together. It is no longer about whether Bobby Mac uses the "c" word in referring to the Central Dalmatians or TanekaKenshasha uses the "e" word in referring to the Eastern Dalmatians, IT IS about how are we to survive on this planet until we figure out a way to get off of it, since we ruined it and will die out as what "we" are if we don't.
There was a guy named Martin who said "I have a dream"; and so do I......
Peace to all!

Hello Paul and Doc Jay....
Nope, not in Nippon (NIN) but am in the State of Flux. Because of my inability to roll my tongue, a large majority of people found me distasteful and undesirable and told me that I cannot possibly fit into society and should, therefore, go flux myself, and thus I did. I entered the state quite a few times, a process that they call "getting fluxed" but the powers that be were of very little help. They stressed standing on one's own two feet and told me to go flux myself. To gain the proper knowledge to do this, I enrolled in a very popular University, affectionately called Flux U. An older female tutor took pity upon us parentless newbie flux students and helped us along, She was known by many of us affectionately as Mother Fluxer.
Yet, mainstream society still does not accept us and many turn a cold hand and cold heart to our plight and, even at this festive time of year will not part with even the most trivial of trinkets because we are who we are....hence the term "I don't give a Flux" anything.
However the grass seems greener on the other side of the fence, in the State of Entropy. I may try to move there, unless my plans get fluxed up.....which happens to us all no matter where we are.
