The Way We Were!

September 25, 2013

What Just Happened? Three weeks ago it appeared we were being prepared for the next in the long series of our Perpetual 21st Century Wars. We were fully justified in this next war because some of our brothers and sisters had killed some others of our family. An eye for an eye! But as Gandhi said, if we follow that rule to its logical conclusion we will all be blind. Instead, we all woke up…..almost over night and changed the world!

Our representative government actually got the message. We began a new experience in using our power to change the world! Before that we had convinced ourselves we had no say in the government or any power to change it.

The churches we attend mirror some of that convincing as well. Even though Jesus uses the words sin, sinners and sinning only 22 times in the New Testament, many churches magnify sin as a way to keep us in control and caged by the fear that we will have to pay for our mistakes in hell.

We have been created by Love and Love is the core of our being. We are hard-wired to know and are fully capable of acting in a loving way in any situation. We also sometimes push the override button and pretend we have forgotten what is right. But, fear cannot exist where love is present.

God does not forget His creation, which allows us to use His power in the universe. But we resist using this power….out of fear. Marianne Williamson says: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

It falls to each of us to remember who we are and to help our brothers and sisters remember themselves along with us.

Instead of focusing on using our power to change the world for the better, we distract ourselves, standing in lines to buy new iPhones and pretending that we have not befouled our global nest by ignoring how our actions and ignorance are destroying the environment. We pretend that the highest good our brilliant minds can create are unstoppable machines of war and mass destruction. We pretend that our need for guns far out-weighs our concern for native terrorist attacks as we watch 250 mass murders (that is defined as 4 murders in one event) take place in this country in the first 250 days of this year. We live in a society that each day looks more and more like an interrogation room and the government is watching us from the other side of the mirror.

We can change this. Our turning away from destroying Syria is the first step in re-awakening to our power and God’s real help.

The wonder of this recent event forced us to see ourselves in a new light. We are not lowly sinners damned to Hell and pleading for Jesus to come save us, nor does a government hell-bent on corralling us into a free-range prison victimize us as helpless citizens.

We are being led, by our higher selves into a time when we will look again and realize we are not human beings struggling to have a spiritual life, we are divine eternal spiritual beings having a human experience, as Pierre Teilhard de Chardin said.

As we make this transition, this shift in consciousness, this experience of a new paradigm we will begin to see more and more often that we are here to love the whole experience of life and each other…..and the day will surely come when we will be astounded that we ever spent any time trying to kill another human being.

As we see each other in this new way and look back on who we used to be, we will exclaim in wonder about our former selves: Who was that?

Kathryn Tatum, ARTIST!

Kathryn Tatum became an artist on her own as a result of her spiritual quest which has now become the matrix for her art. Her art has grown from simple and good to complex and powerful and she is constantly seeking ways to express her conscious connection to all that is in her art and her life. As you will see in this magic interview, she is very bright and insightful about her life and the surroundings in which she lives it.

You can see fine and recent examples of Kathryn’s art at http://www.kathryntatum.com

Kathryn says: “During the past several years, my paintings have pointed towards the sky. The horizon has become a faint line dividing the familiar world in which we dwell and the mysteries of our expansive souls. We stand balanced between solid forms in nature, energetic elements of weather and the intangible awareness of the awe-inspiring universe. This balance point, a state of grace, serves as inspiration for my loosely interpretive paintings.”

Come and See!

Notes From the Masters Class 2013-09-17

This is the next in the series of Notes and it is based on comments by both Sanat Kumara and Isis, Ascended Masters who have been interviewed by Karen and myself. You can listen to all of these interviews and new ones weekly by using the Angel Readings tab above on the right side.

“Hi this is Chuck Robison and today is Tuesday the 17th of September, 2013, and this is Notes From The Masters Class.

A couple weeks ago I was at the Costco store, maybe 15 miles down the road from where we live, and I got to talking to one of the managers and he was explaining to me that they were stocking up everything they could with Christmas stuff because they were opening a new store closer to here, and they were going to be completely ready for Christmas. And this was in the beginning of September.

I thought about that and I thought, you know Christmas is something that we all look forward to, and we all know the script, but it has a much deeper meaning. And the meaning is Peace on Earth, good will to men and women. And we seem to forget that, and yet at the same time, last week something really remarkable, really remarkable happened. You will recall, this is Tuesday, so that would have been a week and a half ago or so, when it was pretty well agreed that we were going to attack Syria. And the funny part about that was that nobody in the leadership thinks that, you know, there must be a better way.

There must be some way to do this and accomplish this without missiles and bullets, and bombs, and all this other stuff we knew would go on. And on top of that there wasn’t a tremendous amount, in fact there wasn’t very much discussion at all in the populace about it, everybody just said, hmm, what are we going to do now.

And then almost overnight we did something that is as profound, even more profound possibly, than when we ended the war in Vietnam with our protests. That is, more people changed their mind almost instantly, and when they changed their mind, some of them wrote to their Congressman, some of them wrote to the President, some of them talked across the back fence. But people began to communicate telepathically, with letters and other things, and they said, you know what, we don’t want another war.

And somehow or another, the leaders of the government had to confront the fact that nobody wanted to do it, it’s like that wonderful poster from Vietnam, you may remember this, I remember it. It said, “suppose they gave a war and nobody came”. That’s basically what’s happened in the last week here. We were invited to a war and everybody said we’re sorry we’re not going to be going to this.

Now what this suggests to me, and may prove to you is, that when we change our mind, and when we focus on things that are a little bit higher than killing our brothers and sisters, regardless of the reason, we can find a better way to solve problems. And I’m not talking about politics, I’m talking about peace on Earth, good will toward men. And when you’re preparing to go to war, as Einstein said, you cannot possibly create peace. They don’t go together, they’re like fear and love, they are total opposites. And it’s our job, that’s you and me, to use whatever power we have, and we have an incredible amount of power, to change things for the better.

There must be a better way, and we are the ones who can find it. Now think about this a little bit this week, somehow or another enough of us found the right way to see to it that what we didn’t want didn’t happen. That’s the negative way to say it. But the positive way is the power way. We wanted something better than just another war, and, by the way, I remind you that every war we’ve gotten into since 1945 has resulted in this same thing. We just keep doing this over and over again, assuming that sooner or later we’ll win one of these. Well, we’re not going to win one of these because they don’t work anymore. And you know that, and I know that, and lots and lots and lots of our brothers and sisters know that just as well.

It’s time to say war for any reason, especially for energy, carbon energy is now finished. And we can do that. We can make up our mind and we can discover what we’ve done, and then make up our mind we are not going to let this happen again. So, let’s go back to that Costco manager that I talked to. He’s getting ready for Christmas with all the supplies and stuff that supposedly makes Christmas whatever it is. But you and I can get ready for Christmas this afternoon. We can change our mind across the board and say, you know what, what we really would like to see is peace on Earth and good will to men and women, and even little black dogs that make too much noise when their father is trying to say something to his friends. So folks, thank you for joining us today. It’s been fun. I look forward to seeing you again. Peace on Earth, good will to men.”

Secrets of Kundalini in Panchastavi by Gopi Krishna

PAN.COV72 Although Panchastavi was written more than a thousand years ago, it remains one of the five most important books in the world. You might wonder why it came to light at this particular point in time. The answer is simple: Because today the world is being decimated by sectarian wars, and Panchastavi can solve the problem.

The book had been lost to all but a tiny few Kashmiri pandits until Gopi Krishna brought it to light. Only he could have translated it into English accurately. This limited first edition is also unique because it includes the original Sanskrit text for future scholars.

“Judged from the point of view of Karma, this little book, containing no more than 146 verses, couched in a metaphorical vein, crowded with archaic and mythical concepts and notions is yet a valuable guide to a science, still in the making, concerned with the baffling mystery of consciousness. The unknown author of this work unfolds in figurative language the germs of what time will prove to be the greatest discovery ever made by mankind. This discovery, when pursued further with the methods known to science, will not only throw light on the still obscure problems of mind, but also start a chain of revolutionary thinking till the whole area of human life becomes transformed in consonance with the still hidden laws ruling the spiritual destiny of the human race.” — From the Introduction to “Panchastavi.”

Printed on 70 lb. acid-free stock, and case-bound in bonded leather, the book is meant to be passed on from one generation to the next for centuries. 280 pages with Gopi Krishna’s introduction.

The price is $40, plus $5 for S.&H. in the U.S. $15 S.&H. overseas. Order from Bethel Publishers, 86 Wallacks Drive, Stamford, CT 06902.

Our Call With Dr. George Armstrong, Ph.D. on September 8, 2013

We got a response from Dr. Armstrong to our article, There MUST Be a Better Way! (see elsewhere on this site). Dr. Armstrong got his Ph.D. in Theology from Princeton in 1973 and is a Lecturer in Systematic Theology at The Theological College of St. John the Evangelist in Aukland, New Zealand.

We realized that insights into the Syria situation from a theologian half way around the world would be valuable and we were not disappointed.

The quality, due to Skype issues, is less that excellent, but the message comes through and you might be interested in his insights about how the world is ‘improving’ despite the issues confronting the global community in this Syrian Crisis.

I am writing this description at noon on September 10, 2013 and the situation in Syria is looking better every minute.

There MUST be a better way!

September 6, 2013

By the time you read this, we will probably be past the Congressional Debate on our Next War.

The original rationale and plan for the perpetual wars of this century is contained in a document titled Project for the New American Century. Sponsored by William Kristol and Robert Kagan, this Neo-Con Manifesto outlines the plans for our take-over of the Middle East and our military domination of the rest of the world as well. This plan is predicated on our position as the sole remaining Super Power.

So far in the Congressional Debate the two choices are either “Go To War” or “Not Go To War”, as if there was only one possible choice! The Go To War justifications include the awe-fullness of the gas attacks in Syria and the need to “stand up as the leader of the world” and show the world that we are as strong and manly as ever.

Ask yourself this: Surely there must be a better way? Our National Leadership displays a remarkable lack of diverse thought and creative problem solving. We say our goal is to prove we stand for freedom and want to help others find it. Yet we, ourselves, are not able to create unique solutions.

Killing is killing whether by bullets, bombs or gas. All of it is terrible, wrong and gruesome. We have spent all of our national treasure on creating perfect killing machines, including the gasses we surreptitiously supply to governments like Syria. We use our treasure to prove to the world that we are right and our leadership of and incursion into their problems is the best and the only way to solve very complex issues.

If we really wanted to model good leadership to the world, we would lead in a different direction. America could win the respect and admiration of the world community, something we hope to get by going to War in Syria, by acting creatively, rather than doing the same thing over and over again and hoping to finally, some day, get better results than we have had in every war since 1945.

Winning in the world struggle requires a paradigm change or a shift in consciousness. More bullets, bombs and gasses are not going the win the minds of anyone involved in an apparent civil war. But a shift in our own thinking could quickly allow us to model a new kind of leadership.

Currently, it is estimated that roughly 3 million refugees have been shoved out of their homes, neighborhoods and country in this civil war, partly funded and supplied by The United States, Russia and a large army of profit oriented arms dealers.

Fully one third of these refugees are children, lost in a foreign desert, living in tents, missing their dead family members, starving, searching for a sip of almost non-existent water, feeling alone and abandoned.

America The Beautiful, right now, could shift and recognize that in civil wars, only the citizens themselves can bring about peace. We cannot. However we can bring compassion, healing, hope and health to these 1 million children and 2 million adult refugees who have been abandoned.

Imagine how the world would view us if we chose to lead compassionately in a direction that has a serious chance at success. Rather than sending bombs, missiles, planes and ultimately American soldiers to create more destruction and more refugees, we could take that same energy, money, and power and create for these refugees, a real place to live, schools, hospitals, access to water, healthy food, jobs and a support system that would create a new direction for these people when the war we currently seek to expand in Syria is over.

But here is the stunning consequence of a shift in national consciousness: We might find that our caring for others, rather than killing them, would open the way for us to show compassion to our own citizens. That’s right. We could model powerful leadership for the rest of the world by treating our citizens in the most positive ways possible. We could say to the world, the Real Red Line for America is how we treat our own citizens.

We have the power to decide that never again will an American child go to bed, night after night hungry and scared. Never again will such a large percentage of our citizens live in decay and depression because our government refuses to repair existing infra-structures and aid broken cities. We could create new transportation, free energy sources, educational systems and other civic projects that would create jobs for our citizens and hope for the future. We could declare an end to the drug war, throw open the for-profit prison doors where more than 1.5 million people are serving time for having small amounts of street drugs that are used regularly by people who will not be arrested because they are white and affluent. We could stop our government treating each of us as potential terrorist threats and subjecting us to constant surveillance and fear-based control of our daily lives.

Right now we could lead the way to a real New American Century that would show the world that wars over carbon-based energy are a thing of the past, and real enlightened self-interest is the way of this millennium.

Michael Tellinger and South Africa’s 250,000 year old ruins.

Michael Tellinger, author, scientist, explorer, has become a real-life Indiana Jones, making groundbreaking discoveries about ancient vanished civilizations at the southern tip of Africa. His continued efforts and analytical scientific approach have produced stunning new evidence that will force us to rethink our origins and rewrite our history books.

Michael has become an international authority on the origins of humankind and the vanished civilizations of southern Africa. Scholars have told us that the first civilization on Earth emerged in a land called Sumer some 6000 years ago. New archaeological and scientific discoveries made by Michael Tellinger, Johan Heine and a team of leading scientists, show that the Sumerians and even the Egyptians inherited all their knowledge from an earlier civilization that lived at the southern tip of Africa more than 200,000 years ago… mining gold. Michael covers that part of our history in his book, Slave Species of God. mt1
Michael’s research reveals many of the latest scientific measurements and presents evidence that this vanished civilization had an astute knowledge of the laws of nature and the generation of free ENERGY from Mother Earth for all their needs. They used the power of sound and frequency as a source of energy, which underpins the scientific conclusions reached by Michael. In his book Temples Of The African Gods he graphically exposes these discoveries that will be the catalyst for rewriting our ancient human history.
