Remembering The “Good Times”

I have to say that these days, as I am in my seventh decade of life, that I do a lot of remembering.  Memories of the “old days” bring me joy and contemplation. In our rural farming community it was common for neighbors to visit each other.  We didn’t just drop in.  It was always based on an invite and a plan.  The whole family went.  The grown-ups talked or played cards.  The kids played together outside or played board games inside.

By no means did we visit every neighbor.  Just like now, certain families were drawn to each other, and those are the ones who shared these visits.  We always had a little fresh baked snack of cookies, cake, pie, or some other tasty treat.  We knew the identity of all the other neighbors.  Some were considered a bit eccentric and kept to themselves.

Crime in those days was highly unusual.  We never locked out doors.  Our home was never invaded or broken into.  I do not recall break-ins of any of the neighbors’ homes either.  So the conversations were not about crime.  Conversations were focused on the daily work required to running the family farm.  Each neighbor had their own little enterprise.  The families were of different religions.  They had different family backgrounds and ways of doing things, which was always respected.

People talked to each other.  Politics were discussed, for sure, but never in an intolerant abusive way that we see today.  My parents were always Democrats, who they believed to be the proponents of farmers and the “little guy” as my Dad used to say.  How times have changed!  It is pretty obvious to me at this time in history that Democrats no longer stand for the American “little guy.”  Truth exposed over the past several years and the Democrats’ current outrageous behaviors are unbelievable.  My parents would be abhorred today if they saw the activities of the Democrats now.

Who? What? Where? Why? When?

Who are we?

What are we?

Where did we come from and where are we going?

Why are we here?’

When did we begin?

I think I’ve always been interested in the possibilities and excitement of human potential, which makes sense when I learned that my birth numbers all point to the number 9.  And more recently, through reading the book, “Soul Signs” by Rosemary Altea, I discovered further verification that I am definitely a humanitarian by nature and natural means, and anything out of sync with that is just not the way I think.

And like many people who reach a point in their lives through a traumatic event that they are compelled to search for a meaning in life, that happened to me in 2007.  Since that time, I have been on a journey, almost an obsession to seeking the meaning of life.  It became totally not enough to patter along in the usual day-to-day events of a “normal” life.  There had to be something more.  My search has led me to reading countless books, listening to many many interviews and discussions, and viewing lots of videos.  The things I have learned has “rocked my world.”

I have learned that pretty much everything I have been taught is either not true at all, only partially true, and in general, is all under suspect.  I have learned that not only have mistakes been made in researching, publishing and reporting information down through the ages, but that much truthful and revealing information has actually been suppressed.  And once a person has gone down that road, there is no turning back.  And, of course, I have learned the importance of carefully discerning the information, as there are hoaxes, misleading intent, incomplete information, etc.  As a small example, there are far far more mysteries and wonders of the world than the typical “Seven Wonders of the World” that I was taught.

If one is interested and reads my former posts, one can see that I have puttered around and dipped my toe into the waters of blogging and sharing my thoughts for awhile.  I’ve been uncertain about what I can possibly bring to the table, as there are so many incredible amazing folks out there who have put forth amazing information.  But what I have also learned is that everything is truly energy, even our thoughts, and if I can contribute in the slightest way to awareness and transformation, I am inspired to put out my little bit of contribution.

An excerpt from “The Seth Material” written by Jane Roberts in 1970.

(This book contains metaphysical channeled information from the collective Seth.)

“You have been given free will. Within you there are blueprints; you know what you are to achieve as individuals and as people, as a race, as a species. You can choose to ignore the blueprints. Now: Using your free will, you have made physical reality something quite different that what was intended. You have allowed the ego to become overly developed and overly specialized. In many respects, you are in a dream. It is you who have made the dream too vivid. You were to work out problems and challenges, but you were always to be aware of your own inner reality, and of your nonphysical existence. To a large extent you have lost contact with this. You have focused so strongly upon physical reality that it becomes the only reality that you know.
When you kill a man, you believe that you kill him forever. Murder is, therefore, a crime and must be dealt with—because you have created it. Death does not exist in those terms.
In the dawn of physical existence, in the dawn before history began, men knew that death was merely a change of form. No God created the crime of murder, and no God created sorrow or pain….Again, because you believe that you can murder a man within your reality and must be dealt with…The assassin of Dr. King believes that he has blotted out a living consciousness for all eternity…But your errors and mistakes, luckily enough, are not real and do not affect reality, for Dr. King still lives.
There is never any justification for violence. There is no justification for hatred. There is no justification for murder. Those who indulge in violence for whatever reason are themselves changed, and the purity of their purpose adulterated.
I have told you that if you do not like the state of your world, it is yourselves that you must change, individually and en masse. This is the only way that change will be effected. ..If your generation or any generation effects a change, this is the only way it will be done. What I am telling you has been said before through the centuries. It is up to you …as to whether or not you will listen.
It is wrong to curse a flower and wrong to curse a man. It is wrong not to hold any man in honor, and it is wrong to ridicule any man. You must honor yourselves and see within yourselves the spirit of eternal vitality. If you do not do this, then you destroy what you touch. You must honor each other individual also, because in him is the spark of eternal vitality.
When you curse another, you curse yourselves, and the curse returns to you. When you are violent the violence returns…I speak to you because yours is the opportunity (to better world conditions) and yours is the time. Do not fall into the old ways that will lead you precisely into the world that you fear.
When every young man refuses to go to war, you will have peace. As long as you fight for gain and greed, there will be no peace. As long as one person commits acts of violence for the sake of peace, you will have war. Unfortunately it is difficult to imagine that all the young men in all of the countries will refuse to go to war at the same time. And so you must work out the violence that violence has wrought. Within the next hundred years that time may come. Remember, you do not defend any idea with violence.
There is no man who hates but that hatred is reflected outward and made physical. And there is no man who loves but that that love is reflected outward and made physical”

Perspectives of Being

As human beings we each experience our reality from our own perspective which includes things like our unique viewpoint, cultural conditioning, gender, ethnicity, etc. And our perspective does indeed create our reality by shaping our expectations and therefore, how we react to our environment, whether that environment is the weather, the geography that is present in our situation, the community around us, and the larger community.  Even hearing the same words spoken will cause different reactions and therefore, different realities within different people.

We also have different reality perspectives based upon whatever activity, position, or situation we are engaged in at any given moment.  We see our reality perspective differently when we are lying on the grass than when we are walking upright in the forest,


or when we are running on the beach.  OCT 17 2010Edit014

We have a different perspective if we are enveloped in darkness as opposed to being in a lighted area.  We get a different perspective when we are in sitting a calm situation of listening to quiet music than if we were in a crowded area with lots of people talking and moving about.   We experience different perspectives according to our state of mind, for instance, if we are very worried or frightened about losing a job or some other aspect of our lives than if we are secure, comfortable, and have no worries about that job.

We all know this if we stop for a moment to ponder our day to day experiences of reality.  We tend to get stuck in experiencing our reality perspective according to all the things we have been conditioned to such as what we learned from our education, our family, our government, our religion, our community, and our culture.  This stuck reality is what causes prejudices, hatred, misunderstandings, judgments, etc.

The good news is that we can change these reality perspectives.  All we have to do is change our belief systems.


Being Human

Are we living interesting times?  I believe we are living in very interesting times.  I’ve been thinking about that statement which I have heard many times from various sources. I believe we are, but as that is so, the interesting times vary greatly, depending on one’s perspective.  And that depends upon a person’s experiences, their age, gender, ethnicity, etc.  As I am now a senior citizen, it is interesting to experience these days from the point of view of an older person.  And being older is only one aspect of my perception, but it is a very important aspect.

I have the privilege of time now in my life that I did not feel I had in days gone by.


Time in itself is a whole new subject and concept that I now realize is totally different from my previous view of it.  That’s a subject for another day, but for now, I will just focus on the perspective of living in these days as an older individual.

With that in mind, and as I now realize, almost everything I learned from the usual sources, such as school, mainstream media, religious experiences, etc. were either lies or only contained partial truths, and everything was totally mixed with a large dose of manipulation.  I was being trained to think a certain way, not as my natural self would have chosen to think, but instead twisted and molded into a “normal” average person with similar views and lifestyle as everyone else.

It feels kind of like I’ve been wrung inside out, and have slowly been being born again into new ideas, new concepts, and a whole new world of being.  One of the things I have thought about many times is what is a “human being?”  The “being” part is what is intriguing to me.  “Being” what; “being” how, “being” why; “being, being, being”; “being” who—-“being” an average person living a lifetime in this reality doesn’t make any sense to my mind anymore.  I really didn’t think about such when I was younger.  After all, I was busy just trying to learn “being” a child, a teen-ager, a young adult, a wife, a mother, an employee, a member of the community, a citizen, etc. etc.  But all of those experiences for each of us carry with them enormous variations, and yet, it appears we have all been manipulated into “being” what some unseen “beings” want us to be.

True News Update: 30 July 2014.

Folks, I SWEAR…you just can’t make this stuff up! Even if you found one of Hollywood’s worst screen writers, and asked them to concoct a plot that would start World War III…even they wouldn’t try to pass any of this stuff off as being plausible…but then again, this isn’t a movie, it’s real life, and it’s messy, and here are the FACTS as we know them now:

1.)    In 2010: Brazil, Russia, China and India formed a new international trading bloc called BRIC.

2.)    In 2011, South Africa joined this union and it was renamed BRICS.

3.)    As of 2013: the five BRICS countries represent almost 3 billion people which is 40% of the world population, with a combined nominal…

Consciousness Unfolding

Wow, I just got back to this blog.  Forgot I even started it, what six years ago!  So much has happened.  With all the new  information I have exposed myself too, kinda feel like I have been “born again”!  Not in the traditional “religious” perception, at least not the way, I perceive the traditional concept.

I have quite a few years behind me since my “formative” years when I was a child, went to school, etc.  But in those days, life was pretty fixed or so I was taught.  Energy was movement; matter was solid, and religious principles and doctrines were not to be questioned.  Things were the way they were.  The ABC’s, reading, writing, arithmetic, science, health, geography and history that I learned were called “facts and figures” that had been taught for generations, and were unchangeable.  It never occurred to me that the history lessons I learned were biased and taught only from the perspective of the “winner of the battles”, and the self-proclaimed ruling entities.   I have now learned that the same is true for science, math, health, geography, etc.  I don’t know what the textbooks contain today, as I have not opened one for many many years.  But I do remember that I was taught that the information contained was never questioned as to its total truth and integrity.

Religion as I was taught as a young child was of great fervor, intensity and massive components of fear injected in the sermon’s teaching that we were all sinners, and very likely bound for “hell” unless we were somehow able to repent enough, of which I never understood, and so remained fearful for many many years, and has been a very hard concept to release from my consciousness.

As I did move toward and enter young adulthood many many years ago, I did begin to question religious doctrines and tried to make some sense out of them and tried to live in a way that might prevent me from someday experiencing that awful hell destination that had been so thoroughly injected in my consciousness and so severely impacted my belief system.  I moved away from the authoritative Lutheran “fire and brimstone” preaching that was my initial childhood religious experience, and into “kinder” churches, and I attended Methodist, Baptist, and other Christian churches.  I was even baptized two more times (previously as an infant in the Lutheran Church).  Later on in my twenties, I joined another authoritative but “progressive” church.  As a member of that church we were required to study religious beliefs, religious history, etc.  So I gained a fair amount of knowledge at that time about different religious in general, which, however, led me to more questions than answers.  In due time, that church also became part of my personal history, and so life went on with no further relationship with an organized religion and no desire for such a relationship.  I felt “spiritual” without having any idea why, but with absolutely no interest or personal need for “religion.”

Anyway, enough about that, and skipping quite a few years, over the last several years, particularly with intensity over the last seven years, I have been on a self-induced crash course of mind expansion as a result of my huge thirst and personal need for gaining as much knowledge as I could in my yearnings to understand what we are, who are we, why we are here, where did we come from, etc.

And what I have been awakening into is a vastly expanded universe filled with exciting, inspirational, and abundant information in all fields of study and experiential realms.  For me, it’s been a slow process of  one idea and concept building onto another, and then another, etc.  I’ve been open minded, but also holding a healthy skepticism so that I’ve felt a need to receive information from a variety of sources and allow the passage of time and feeling to transcend my thoughts into acceptance of very different possibilities and a gradual evolution of my belief system.

I have not counted the number of them, but probably have read and/or listened to audiobooks of hundreds of titles, and of course, website articles, radio interviews, utube videos, and my local library have been and continue to be incredible and essential resources for exposure, contemplation, and exploration of information.

Here are a few of my favorite links to websites that I feel totally confident in sharing, as I believe the authenticity of most of their content, and are definitely sites to explore that contain tremendous amounts of information for anyone who is interested in expansion of their minds and reality.
