“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.

We are beginning to assess the possibility for the changes that you all have been seeking within your governments and political systems. We have been big supporters of you taking your power back, and we are not talking about taking that power back by voting or running for political office. When you take your attention off of what the politicians are doing and saying, and you put your emphasis back on what you are feeling and vibrating, that is when you start to take your power back.

And that is what it will take for you all to release yourselves from the grip that those in power have over you. The power is given to them, and it is given to them by those of you who think that they are somehow more significant players in how you live your lives than yourselves. When you live your lives in a state of joy then you are being yourselves. There was a time when people needed leaders to guide them, to give them a sense of morality, and to make them feel safe, but those days are behind you now, and it is time for you all to empower yourselves.

And when you do, that will open the door for massive and sweeping changes to the way you govern yourselves, to the world economy, and to the way that you experience contact with extra-terrestrials. We are telling you this because we want you to see how much more powerful you are when you stop taking sides politically and you start embracing each other, regardless of beliefs, religion, or political affiliation.

You need to unite first, and then you can see the changes that you want to see. And the key to that unification is taking your attention off of the news about politics and politicians and putting your attention back on yourselves. Go within, and feel how much power you have.

We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”

All in this together

Thom, after watching the debates the last two nights (June 26th and 27th) and listening to your podcasts in response, the thought occurred to me that one way for democratic progressives to take the wind out of the sails of republican and establishment democrats who are trying to neutralize their impact is to define their platform as “humanitarian democracy” (voluntary cooperation or pooling our resources), instead of “democratic socialism.” The word “socialism” is too often associated with the idea of communism or forced cooperation by both democrats who depend on Wall Street for reelection support and republicans, who depend on corporations and billionaires for reelection support.

When we make who we are, how much money, power and privilege we have, more important than how we are, how we treat each other, we create polarization and conflict. We set the stage for authoritarianism. The result is hidden agendas and propaganda to lull people to sleep or bully them into submission, as policies are put into place that favor the few at the expense of the many.

I think it’s essential to acknowledge that we’re all in this (life or Being and Creation) together because we are! Climate balance will not return unless we all participate in making it happen in every way we can. We don’t need heroes. We need common sense, love, and cooperation. Let’s build momentum by sharing our personal stories about what we’re already doing to reduce our impact on the environment. Many of us everywhere have already begun to take action. What’s your story?

Questions Can Help Us Gain Clarity Too

What can we do today for the selves we’ll be tomorrow?

What do we want most for our children, ourselves and the world?

What works best and makes us happiest in our oneness with and separation from All That Is, as both products of creation and creation itself?

We think, feel, act and react; therefore, we ARE.

As we think, feel, act and react, we create.

To change what we create, we must change what we think and feel, how we act and react. If we don’t do it ourselves, who will, and what might their agenda be?

Love what you do, Thom!

What others will not or cannot do for us, we must do for ourselves, if we think it’s important enough.

“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.

We are continuing to examine the ways in which you are affected by the energies that we and other benevolent beings send to you. We cannot know for certain how something will affect you until it does, and we witness it. We want you to recognize that the same is true in your lives. Oftentimes, you don’t know how something is going to affect you or someone close to you, and so, you have these experiences that help you to refine and help you to define, and all experiences make you more advanced beings.

Therefore, we want you to embrace everything. We want you to see that the goal of your lives is not to get it right or to be perfect. The goal of life is not to be the most spiritual or most awake person that you could ever be. Your goal is truly to be you and then to recognize that everyone else also is on that same mission, and as such, they need to be allowed to be who they are. Certain problems and conflicts arise within humanity when you believe that someone else being who they are is going to interfere with your ability to be who you are.

Once you are fifth dimensional, you will realize that this is a complete fallacy. Nothing could be further from the truth. All beings can co-exist as they truly are without stepping on each other’s toes. You can choose to resist someone else and what they are doing or saying, or you can allow that person to help you get clearer about who you are and leave it at that. We’ve said this before and we will say it again. Ascension is not about defeating anyone, and it’s certainly not about defeating any ideas or thoughts. You certainly give yourself a growth experience when you feel something, no matter what it is, as a result of something that someone else has done or said or even what they believe.

Trusting that everyone is on their own path, has their own guides, and will be given opportunities to evolve and ascend is a part of your own spiritual evolution. Sometimes, all you can do is make that shift from your judgmental mind to your compassionate heart and send someone who has done nothing to deserve it a transmission of unconditional love, because that is who you are. That’s your full, complete, whole self in a nutshell, and that’s all that really matters. Remember that, and do your best not to get sucked into an argument or a state of resistance. It is important that you not do those things because you are the ones who are there to raise the consciousness for all of humanity.

We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”

“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.

We have been very impressed with the way that all of humanity has been exploring the depths of your being-ness. We see and feel more self-awareness within the average human than we have ever witnessed previously on Earth. Therefore, it is a wonderful time for those of you who have been awake and on the leading edge of consciousness to be talking about your experiences with handling the darkness, the negativity, the things that you were once ashamed of, but have now been able to integrate.

Sharing your stories is a wonderful way to assist others in getting to the place where you are on your journey. People need to know that they are not alone in their exploration of all aspects of themselves, and in sharing your stories, you will also be sharing your methods, your techniques for getting through the dark times, the times when you were not sure whether you would make it.

Many of you who are awake have felt suicidal at some point, and as sad as it may sound, that is a normal consequence of being awake. And so, letting others know that you’ve had that type of experience will help them to get through their own dark night of the soul. The awareness of who you have been in prior lifetimes, the negative thoughts and actions that you have all engaged in in this lifetime, these are the types of experiences that when shared, created a dialogue.

You want to demystify these types of experiences and remove the emotional and energetic charge that they have. People often feel imprisoned by their own thoughts and feelings, and because they feel they are the only ones having those thoughts and feelings, those individuals tend to shove all of that darkness down.

We are suggesting that you help others to make peace with what they encounter inside of themselves and that you do that through your blogs and your social media posts. You do that by talking to people in your lives, letting them know what you’ve experienced and how you got through it. This is an act of kindness and an act of service to the rest of humanity, and it is time to normalize these experiences for everyone so that you can let it go and get on with building the future, a better future for all of humankind.

We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”

Seth: About Life After Death

Hi Seth friends, even in death it seems it ain’t over until we say it’s over… – Seth Quote posted on Facebook by Lynda Madden Dahl, June 4, 2019.

“Perhaps your life span runs for seventy-seven years. After death you may, under certain conditions and if you choose, experience the events of those seventy-seven years at your leisure—BUT NOT NECESSARILY in terms of continuity. You may alter the events. You can manipulate within that particular dimension of activity that represented your seventy-seven years.

“If you find severe errors of judgment, you may then correct them. You may perfect, in other words, but you cannot again ENTER INTO THAT FRAME OF REFERENCE as a completely participating consciousness following, say, the historic trends of the time, joining into the mass-hallucinated existence that resulted from the applied consciousness of your self and your ‘contemporaries.’

“Some choose this rather than reincarnating, or rather as a study before a new reincarnation. These people are often perfectionists at heart. They must go back and create. They must right their errors. They use the immediately-past life as a canvas, and with the same ‘canvas,’ they attempt a better picture.

“This is a mental and psychic exercise, undertaken by many, demanding great concentration, and is no more hallucinatory than any existence.”

Seth Speaks, Session 539

Roger Peterson Is it safe to say we’re all doing the best we can with what we know in this moment and learning more to do better; that, as multidimensional, vibrational Beings of Aware Energy, it is in our nature?

createsforgivenessyard

Lynda Madden Dahl I think it’s up to each of us individually to agree or disagree what you state above, Roger, about doing the best we can with what we know in this moment, etc. It’s not a universal statement that can be made to cover all…nor should it be, since we’re all on different paths and at different locations on those paths. 😉

Roger Peterson Yes, we are on different paths in one sense, but in another, we are on the same path, the path of the greatest possible fulfillment of all Being and Creation. If Aware Energy (Consciousness) is the Source and Substance of All That Is, doesn’t that make us both one with and separate from each other? Doesn’t it make us both products of creation and creation itself? If one of us discovers something of value, doesn’t compassion tell us to share it with others who might be suffering from the same dilemma as us previously.

As creators in our own right, which message do we want to send out into the world, the idea that we’re bad and can’t be forgiven until we repent (as judged by who?) or, the belief that we’re doing the best we can with what we know and learning more to do better? Isn’t the value of an idea in the reality it creates and what we can learn from it? Yes, we’re all free to think and feel what we want, until we fail or refuse to take responsibility for the consequences of our thoughts, feelings, actions and reactions, and someone suffers as a result.
Having an exchange like this can lead to greater awareness and understanding if our shared goal is value fulfillment and we practice idealism, do the best we can with what we know and learn more to do better.

Lynda Madden Dahl Physical reality isn’t meant to lead everyone on to a ‘spiritual’ path this time ’round, Roger. There are myriad lessons to be learned here that cannot be learned outside of physical reality.

Here are a couple Seth quotes that express exactly that:

* I want to stress that I am speaking here not so much about a kind of spiritual evolution as I am about an expansion of consciousness.

* You cannot appreciate your spirituality unless you appreciate your creaturehood. It is not a matter of rising above your nature, but of evolving from the full understanding of it. There is a difference.

* When you try to be spiritual by cutting off your creaturehood you become less than joyful, fulfilled, satisfied natural creatures, and fall far short of understanding true spirituality.

* The vitality of the universe is creativity and joy and love, and THAT is spirituality.

Lynda Madden Dahl Here’s another interesting comment from Seth on when a physical life may not be focused on ‘spirituality’, but instead on other important purposes:
“According to many schools of thought, artificial drugs, so-called, or chemicals, are considered in a very negative light, cutting you off from nature. Yet such experiments represent a strong line of probability only in its ‘infancy,’ in which man could sustain himself without draining the earth, live without killing animals, and literally form a new kind of physical structure CONNECTED to the earth, while not depleting its substance.
“This does not mean that some biological confusion might not result in the meantime. It does mean that even in THOSE terms, AND consciously UNKNOWING, mankind is experimenting with a probable species and working out quite spiritual issues.”

Roger PetersonLynda: “Physical reality isn’t meant to lead everyone on to a ‘spiritual’ path this time ’round, Roger. There are myriad lessons to be learned here that cannot be learned outside of physical reality.”

I agree with your observation, Lynda. I also agree with the Seth quotes you listed. However, I feel it’s important for me to say that I don’t agree with them because you or Seth say it or because it represents some kind of generally accepted orthodoxy. I agree with these observations because I can see them in myself and All That Is. The same holds true for Seth’s later observations.

Back to your original response to my question: Is it safe to say we’re all doing the best we can with what we know in this moment and learning more to do better; that, as multidimensional, vibrational Beings of Aware Energy, it (self-development) is in our nature?

You responded back: “I think it’s up to each of us individually to agree or disagree what you state above, Roger, about doing the best we can with what we know in this moment, etc. It’s not a universal statement that can be made to cover all…nor should it be, since we’re all on different paths and at different locations on those paths.”

First of all, it is my understanding that we are both on a shared path as well as our own path, simultaneously. If there is any truth to this idea and the idea that we’re all telepathically linked then sharing our personal stories with each other should have some meaning and value.

With that in mind here is the experience that led me to write about The Healing Power of Forgiveness. It occurred during meditation when I was in my early to mid-forties. For some reason I began to think about my parents and our strained, lifelong relationship. As I began to review old memories of our relationship, the words, “wait a minute” came up that set me on a new track of thought. Just like that, instead of thinking about all the things they made me do that I didn’t want to do, all the things I wanted and didn’t get, and all the ways they failed to measure up to the model of what I thought were ideal parents, I began to think about all the good things they did for my brothers and me. In addition, I found myself thinking about how challenging Being and Creation (life) is for everyone and everything. It’s hard enough to take care of ourselves, let alone raise a family with all the things required to make that happen.

When I placed the memory of how challenging life is for All That Is together with the appreciation of how much our parents actually did for us (food, shelter, clothing, warmth and more), I couldn’t help but cry in shame and forgiveness. I couldn’t believe how stubborn, insensitive, and blind I had been as a child to all they had done for us, while, at the same time, trying to live and make something of their own lives. After the emotions of guilt and shame finished playing out in my mind, they were replaced with thoughts and feelings of forgiveness, love, and lots of imaginary hugs. Forgiveness automatically turned into love. As it turned out, it was all a matter of perspective and limitation and all those things can be changed. As we think, feel, act and react, we create. To change what we create, we change what we think and feel, how we act and react.

After this experience, I began to look around and see that everyone around me, myself included, was doing the best they can with what they know and learning more to do better. The more I think about this idea, the more often I see it peeking out at me, and take joy from the sight of it.

Cheers!

“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.

We have been looking into the various possibilities that are in front of you as you move forward as a collective, and we have seen what growth potential there is for humanity when you as individuals drop your resistance to others and to the ideologies and beliefs of others. We have seen how much progress can be made towards bringing you into the fifth dimension with ease and joy when you let down all of your defenses.

We are talking about your desires to defeat those who have a difference of opinion. We are talking about letting go of any and all ideas of separation and polarization, and we are talking about letting others have their beliefs no matter how much you feel in response to those beliefs.

When someone else is triggering you, that person is doing exactly what you have asked him or her to do. Remember that the next time you get riled up by what someone else is talking about in regards to their beliefs. We know that you also have to present your beliefs. We know that you have to speak your truth and act according to your truth, but we also know that you can do so with peace and harmony in your hearts, with no resistance to those who hold the polar opposite view.

And when you do that, you will be bringing yourselves closer to the truth of who you really are as Source Energy Beings and you certainly will be bringing yourselves closer to the experience of yourselves as fifth dimensional beings, as your higher selves. Everything that you resist in this lifetime, you have been a proponent of in another lifetime. You cannot resist another without resisting a part of yourself.

And so, you can stand up for what you believe in, but you can do so peacefully. You can do so with peace in your heart and with no desire to defeat anyone who disagrees with you. This is what you are moving towards as a collective, so you might as well go willingly.

We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”

“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.

“We have begun to explore the hidden human potential that we see inside of you, because we are curious to see which of you is going to tap into that hidden potential and when you are going to do it. This is something that intrigues us very much because we see glimpses of that potential realized by certain humans in moments where you are accessing abilities and aspects of yourselves that cannot be explained in any conventional way. You have within you so much potential, and we are certain that once a few of you begin to realize that full potential, the ripple effect will occur, and we will see hundreds, and then thousands, and then millions of people accessing that potential that lies within you.

“Now you must be wondering how to do it. It’s not about what you do. It’s not about you having the right crystals, speaking the right mantras, or going through the proper motions to access the full, beautiful human potential that we see. You get to that potential by feeling for how magnificent you are, and you can only get to that feeling by dropping the limiting thoughts and beliefs and by being with yourselves. We want you to feel for this potential. We want you to feel for it as an energy because that’s what it is.

“In the same way that some of you have been able to access your kundalini energy by feeling for it and inviting it up your spine, you can access this potential by acknowledging that it is there and feeling for it. Don’t think of your potential as being limited to your abilities, because it is so much more than that. It is the full merging of the human and the Divine. It is the moment where you know yourself as both simultaneously and you recognize what a powerful gift that is. To be able to have a physical body and to also feel your Divinity fully actualized is the best possible experience you can have in this universe.

“So here is your invitation. Focus within yourselves and realize that you can unlock this potential at any time. You don’t have to wait for the shift to be completed. You don’t have to wait for anything. In fact, this experience is waiting for you.

“We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”

What are we trying to teach ourselves?

What do we want to learn?

Does God, or the collective consciousness of All That Is, care more about how much we suffer from the consequences of our thoughts and experiences or how much we learn and evolve as a result of them? I suspect that God cares very much about how much we suffer, but he cares more about how much we learn from our experiences. Imagine that you’re God, or the collective Consciousness or All That Is; how would you set the stage for the greatest possible fulfillment of your potential? To give yourself a boost, ask yourself: as a human being, how would I set the stage for the greatest possible fulfillment of my potential, in my oneness with and separation from All That Is, as both a product of creation and creation itself?

In The Story of Creation cited in Christian, Jewish, and Islamic bibles, Adam and Eve each took a bite of the fruit from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil in the middle of the Garden of Eden. They did it against God’s express Command not to eat fruit from this tree, “for in the day that you eat of it you shall die.”Chapter 2, Verse 2:17. What’s interesting is that He only gave names to two trees, the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil and the Tree of (eternal) Life. He also made it a point to let Adam and Eve know that both trees were planted in the middle of the garden.

As the story goes, after God learned that Adam and Eve ate of the fruit from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, He clothed them with skins, told them how punishing life outside of Eden would be, then kicked them out, never to return. Whether this story is true or hypothetical doesn’t matter. It still tells us much about ourselves and the role of choice-making in our lives or Being and Creation.

Here are direct quotes about this part of the story. They are taken from the Vatican version of the Story of Creation in Genesis, the first book in the Old Testament. They also appear in my account of What I Learned in Catholic School:

Chapter 2: (As the Story of Creation unfolds):

[2:9] Out of the ground the LORD God made to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food, the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
[2:15] The LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to till it and keep it.
[2:16] And the LORD God commanded the man, “You may freely eat of every tree of the garden;
[2:17] but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall die.”

Chapter 3: (After Eve is created out of one of Adam’s ribs):

[3:1] Now the serpent was more crafty than any other wild animal that the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God say, ‘You shall not eat from any tree in the garden’?”
[3:2] The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden;
[3:3] but God said, ‘You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the middle of the garden, nor shall you touch it, or you shall die. ‘”
[3:4] But the serpent said to the woman, “You will not die;
[3:5] for God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

(Later, in chapter 3, we deal with the consequences of Adam and Eve’s disobedience):

[3:6] So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate.
[3:7] Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made loincloths for themselves.
[3:8] They heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden at the time of the evening breeze, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden.
[3:9] But the LORD God called to the man, and said to him, “Where are you?”
[3:10] He said, “I heard the sound of you in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.”
[3:11] He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?”
[3:12] The man said, “The woman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me fruit from the tree, and I ate.”
[3:13] Then the LORD God said to the woman, “What is this that you have done?” The woman said, “The serpent tricked me, and I ate.”
[3:14] The LORD God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, cursed are you among all animals and among all wild creatures; upon your belly you shall go, and dust you shall eat all the days of your life.
[3:15] I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will strike your head, and you will strike his heel.”
[3:16] To the woman he said, “I will greatly increase your pangs in childbearing; in pain you shall bring forth children, yet your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you.”
[3:17] And to the man he said, “Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten of the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You shall not eat of it,’ cursed is the ground because of you; in toil you shall eat of it all the days of your life;
[3:18] thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you; and you shall eat the plants of the field.
[3:19] By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; you are dust, and to dust you shall return.”
[3:20] The man named his wife Eve, because she was the mother of all living.
[3:21] And the LORD God made garments of skins for the man and for his wife, and clothed them.
[3:22] Then the LORD God said, “See, the man has become like one of us, knowing good and evil; and now, he might reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever”–
[3:23] therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from which he was taken.
[3:24] He drove out the man; and at the east of the garden of Eden he placed the cherubim, and a sword flaming and turning to guard the way to the tree of life.

Again, if you were God, or the Collective Consciousness of All That Is, how would you set the stage for the greatest possible fulfillment of your potential? Would you care more about how much you suffer or how much you learn as a result of our experiences? As Beings of Aware Energy that exist only because we think, feel, act and react, that translate the energy of ideas into dramas of every type and experience, is it possible for us to truly die? Out of an infinite number of choices, what works best and makes you happiest?

For further reference, read The Hidden Hand, Part 1. Believe me, it will throw you for a loop!

Want most for

What do you want most from each other?

Ask yourself each question with an open heart and mind. If it helps, imagine that each one is a key that unlocks the door to all possible and probable answers that lie hidden outside this moment in your life. Or, imagine that, by asking these questions, you automatically open the door to greater awareness and understanding. To get the answers that work best and make you happiest, treat this process as though it is a grand treasure hunt, because it is!

Remember, too, that as a Being of Aware Energy, you are both one with and separate from All That Is; you are both a product of creation and creation itself. Green light!

To give you a head start, here is what my wife, Sandra, and I came up with for answers to these questions and other variations of them. My answers came quickly because I work with inner consciousness every day. As I thought about what I want most for and from myself and others, “love and understanding” popped up in my mind. When Sandra asked herself these questions, the answers that came up for her were happiness, love, understanding and wisdom.

When you ask parents what they want most for their children, a majority of them choose happiness. How do you feel about that? I used to agree with that. However, how can anyone make happiness a big part of their lives without having love and understanding first? Isn’t not having love and understanding a major source of unhappiness? Now that I think about it, I would add honesty to this framework of ideas too. Without honesty, how can balance and integrity be part of our lives?

If thoughts are “things” with a reality of their own and each of us an artist, isn’t it important for us to learn from our experiences instead of judging ourselves by them? If, as we think, feel, act and react, we create, to change what we create, shouldn’t we change what we think and feel, how we act and react?

Think about it. Every thought is a suggestion, a blueprint for action, whether we use it in the form of a belief, attitude, value or expectation. What do we want most for our children, ourselves, and the world? What can we do today for the selves we’ll be tomorrow? Change what we think and how we act, and we change what we create. Green Light!

Save Social Security from Trump's Sabotage

Donald Trump has a new scheme to cut Social Security, and it is up to us to expose his false populism.

Ever since seizing office, Trump and his cronies joined the long-running Republican attack on Social Security that one advocate describes as “death by a thousand cuts.”1 Now, the Trump Social Security Administration is planning a new fee for replacing a Social Security card that amounts to yet another cut to our earned benefits.2

Paying to access benefits we already earned is nothing more than a cut – one that hurts women the most, since they disproportionately request new cards, usually upon marriage. We need to pressure the Social Security Administration to drop this plan and expose Trump’s attacks on Social Security.

Tell the Social Security Administration: Stop helping Trump undermine the Social Security system.

Trump’s latest budget would cut our earned Social Security, Medicaid, and Medicare benefits despite his false promises.3 Trump’s repeated claim that he would not cut earned benefits set him apart from other Republicans during the campaign, and helped him win over some skeptics. Now, his constant attacks on Social Security are denying people benefits they earned through hard work, and even costing some their lives.4

Low wages and Wall Street scams have left countless Americans unable to save for retirement. Yet instead of protecting the best and most stable retirement program we have, Donald Trump and Trump Republicans repeatedly attack it. Trump and his cronies cut funding for the Social Security Administration itself – leading to office closures, massive loss of staff and long waits for disability benefits.5 The new fee to replace a Social Security card is more of the same Trump-Republican strategy to cut into already-modest earned benefits.

Social Security is one of the most successful government programs in our history, helping to keep tens of millions of Americans out of poverty over the past 80 years. It can pay all the benefits we earned through 2034 and nearly 80 percent after without any changes. We can shore up and expand Social Security simply by forcing the wealthy to pay their fair share. But instead, Trump and his pals are trying to cut Social Security without anyone noticing. We cannot let that happen.

Tell the Social Security Administration: Stop helping Trump undermine the Social Security system.

Thank you for speaking out.

Is it time to be honest with ourselves? Is it time to ask ourselves questions like:

  1. What do you want most from me and what do you want most for me?
  2. What do I want most from you and what do I want most for you?
  3. What do I want most from me and what do I want most for me?

Questions like these allow us to access hidden thoughts in our subconscious minds and change them if they’re not to our liking. Once we clearly understand and make peace with what we want most for and from each other, others will no longer be able to polarize and manipulate us because of unclear, fear-driven thoughts and emotions hidden below the surface of our waking consciousness. Others will no longer be able to use our power against us once we’re clear about who and what we are and what we want most for and from each other – in our oneness with and separation from each other – as both products of creation and creation itself.

After some thought, individually and between ourselves, my wife, Sandra, and I came to the conclusion that what we want most for and from ourselves, our children, and others is love and understanding. Try it yourself! Write these questions down or memorize them. Find quiet moments during the day to think about them or at night, when you’re lying awake in bed.

Also, share them with others to see what they come up with. When most people are asked what they want most for their children, their first answer is, “I want my children to be happy.” Think about this, how can anyone be happy if what they think and do is never good enough in their own eyes or in the eyes of those around them? Unless we can see the importance of love and understanding in our lives, how can we expect to experience true happiness in life? How can our children and others experience true happiness in their lives?

As we think, feel, act and react, we create. To change what we create, we must change what we think and feel, how we act and react. This is where the wheels of spiritual reality (thought and feeling) meet the road of material reality (action and reaction).
