Posts Tagged ‘Mother Nature’

This past week has been one of shifting, changing and moving resulting in the fact that my mind is in more chaos than normal. I am in Ashland, Oregon, a small community one hour north of Mt Shasta, CA (where I used to live) and nestled in a valley of the beautiful and also mystical Rogue River. Ashland is known as a cultural and “awakened” community and for the past 76 years has hosted the Oregon Shakespeare Festival drawing audiences from all over the world. Also within the community are a variety of other theater styles and with music and dance have strong followings. Alternative fuels, building, agriculture, education and lifestyles are also well represented.

So far many of the people I have met  are “long time residents” most having visited and fallen in love with the area back in the 60s and 70s. It is the heart of the “State of Jefferson”  http://www.jeffersonstate.com/. Back in the early 1940s there was a strong movement by residents of Northern California and Southern Oregon to become self governing and secede from the greater states of CA and OR because they felt their needs and desires were not being represented appropriately. Their role model was Thomas Jefferson’s vision for America. As timing and fate would have it, just days before the secession was to be signed into Law, Pearl Harbor was attacked and the “patriotic” call went out from the government and the secession was put on the back burner never to be revived. Yet there are still signs on Hwy 5 stating you are in The State of Jefferson!

“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them, will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.” ~Thomas Jefferson

As coincidence would have it, in 2004-05 I lived in Charlottesville, VA, the birth place of Thomas Jefferson and the place he, as father of American education, established the education model with the University of Virginia. While there I began my television program called “Have You Ever Wondered…Stepping Beyond Status Quo”.  This program came out of the mis-truth I discovered of Jefferson’s own birthdate, thus opening up my musings of “have you ever wondered if everything you have ever been taught and told is true…usually it is not!” As most of us learn through the everyday media outlets, information is subjective and creative in expression and interpretation, even mine! Yet unlike “the big guys” I am the first to say and encourage readers and listeners don’t believe everything you read, see or hear; do your own research to discover what is right and truth for you – no matter what the situation or topic!

Where Has All the Money Gone!

Over and over again this past week I have heard and been part of conversations referring to the state of the economy, this and that businesses have closed because of the lack of funds, cutbacks, etc. People are struggling. These days I am not immunize from the fear and doubt either and I know better….at least in the big picture. The Powers that Be want us to continue to believe this, to keep us enslaved to their illusion.

Yet all I have to do is remember how once a year Forbes Magazine proudly announces the 400 BILLIONAIRES IN THE USA – 400 individuals whose personal/corporate wealth/assets/holdings/bank accounts/stocks/ bonds/minerals and whatever else one can OWN total up to SOME UNGODLY AMOUNT THAT IS UNFATHOMABLE. Then when you add the TOTAL BILLIONAIRES IN THE REST OF THE WORLD who collectively have a far greater TOTAL WEALTH, we are talking HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS OF $$$$$ OR ANY OTHER CURRENCY.  And this is not counting the billions and trillions (and whatever comes after that) of funds within governments, corporations and those who haven’t made the billionaire list……HOW MANY ZEROS CAN YOU FIT ON THE PAGE!

At tops they tell us we have 7 billions people currently living and taking up space on Planet Earth, yet a good 2/3s live at or below an acceptable poverty level. What is wrong with this picture?

None of these people and corporations did it alone! We collectively supported, purchased and worked tirelessly to create this massive imbalance.   My beef is not with those who have…..it is with those who have and do such a good job of convincing everyone else that they are not allowed to have because there won’t be enough left – those who mismanage, misuse or misunderstand budgets.

I have had the personal experience of turning around  the perspective and reality of a Non-Profit, Federally Funded Community Service Program.  The previous director only saw lack and for the 25 years she was director there were never enough funds to last the year. She did nothing wrong, no illegalities of any sort; it was her mind conditioning that the federal funding was never enough, therefore it wasn’t!  I took took the exact same budget, looked at it differently, had the same previous book-keeping staff and within six months we had increased our office space, provided more services, improved the community image and at the end of each year (four years total) we had $$$$ we had to spend to take the budget total down to ZERO. There were no tricks, no misuse, no mismanagement.  Granted all the other directors in the region were not happy when I challenged their argument of not having enough….yet I had the full support and surprise of my supervisor. It is for this reason I NEVER accept the need or argument for budget cuts of social and service agencies – federal, state or city and neither should you!

If you don’t believe me, let me see your budget and program to test it out!

In the void between winter and spring does Mother Nature sends out the message through the earth matrix to the roots of ALL growth….some of you can’t grow and produce this year because I want to store my energy in my PET PLANTS  for them to flourish and make me rich. The rest of you will just have to struggle and steal what you can from each other! If you don’t get my rain..too bad; if you don’t get my sun…too bad! I am going to create disasters, earthquakes, floods, plagues, droughts so you know I’m in charge and more powerful and wealthier than you!

No, this is not how the natural world works….the disasters we experience are created from the imbalance between the Natural World and the Human World.

As the great zodiac sign of Libra shows – Imbalance has to be equalized…..it is time for appropriate equalization relative to humanitarianism, relative to personal and global consciousness, relative to gratitude, relative to compassion and relative to the health of All Life!
