Governance of Love – Vs – Dark Force Machinations

“In your patience possess ye your souls . . . And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh . . . for these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.”  —Jesus (Luke 21:19-22)

A COLLEAGUE and long time friend, Will Wilkinson, sent me a presentation by Martin Cecil, a spiritual mentor to many, that struck me as being quite relevant to what’s afoot in the world today.  With Will’s agreement, I am publishing it here on my blog.  Pay particular attention to Will’s word substitutions, which he explains in his preface.  The subheadings in Martin’s presentation are mine.

WILL: Martin Cecil, leader of the Emissaries – a spiritual community I habituated for 21 years – spoke the following words extemporaneously in 1980 during a summer session I attended in Colorado. To make his insights more widely accessible, I’ve substituted for the Christian terms, specifically, God for Love, priesthood for spiritual government. Martin used the term “devil” often. I changed this to “wetiko,” a Cree term for “mind virus,” a malady affecting white men (I’d say affecting everyone). I renamed the piece; the original title was Worldwide Machinations. Today, forty years later, this message seems remarkably relevant.   

[Note: This is rather lengthy. You may want to print it out for reading later.  Also, for a direct connection with Will Wilkinson, and to join in his “Love Casting” event, go to his website at http://www.noonclub.org.)

THE GOVERNMENT OF LOVE

   Martin Cecil

 MARTIN: Consistently we concern ourselves with what is necessary to uplift—uplift toward a true point of centering. We ourselves have recognized this requirement in our own experience. There is always something higher than we ourselves are. The orientation should be upward if there is to be provided what is necessary from the standpoint of spiritual government. We make use of all our circumstances to extend the spiritual government.

We ourselves have upward orientation. We are very much aware that this is what is required of the whole world: upward, right orientation. In any pattern of government there is always the necessity that those who govern should be oriented upward. Of those in spiritual government it has been said that they rightly represent Life to the people and the people to Life. To do this those individual spiritual governors must be oriented upward.

When this country in which we now are was first initiated this requirement of orientation upward was in the consciousness of those concerned. “One nation under God.” Of course what that might mean may not have been too clearly understood, but at least there was this recognition that there was something higher—if there was to be anything of value in the nation which was forming, it would have to be oriented in that direction. Clearly this was the basic foundation of the country as it began to put in an appearance.

One might say that it had been the basic foundation for almost any nation that began to put in an appearance. Monarchies, for instance, were established on the basis of the representation of deity. The British monarchy is based in this idea—in a sense it’s become a figurehead, so that it isn’t real, and yet in another sense it is real because there is a sense not only of duty but of necessity, to play a role that is fitting in that position. That’s a very controlled situation, isn’t it? There is a role to be played upon which a great many people are depending. It’s important to many people that there should be a representation of something that is true to their highest vision. So there is value to the British monarchy on this basis. The Queen is also the head of the church. The divine right of kings was one of the factors in times past because the king was supposed to represent God. Well that’s right. He didn’t do it perhaps, but that’s the proper role he should have been playing. Seeing that there’s not all that much power exercised by monarchy these days, in a direct sense, then people are more comfortable with it actually. They feel the need of something higher, other than what they themselves have elected—most people have little confidence in that—they have little confidence in themselves. It is good to have someone in whom one may have a certain amount of confidence.

LUST FOR POWER

In this country there was a recognition of the need for the point of focus in deity; but that was rather a vague thing that was to be known individually speaking, because church and state were separate. And if the population ceased to be concerned with letting God (Love) be supreme in their own living, well the nation would disintegrate, because this was the basis upon which it had been initiated. For any government, in any nation, there always is the requirement of something higher. It is because of this that those who are interested in power—there always has been a lust for power in human beings, which comes to special focus obviously in some people; we have seen it exemplified in someone like Hitler, and there have been many such aspiring persons seeking to be supreme in the world; so there are those who have this particular lust for power. This may be interpreted in different ways by different people, according to the level from which you view the situation.

There is a presidential election coming up [in 2024] and there are those, strangely enough, who aspire to that position. The idea may be on the part of the electorate, more perhaps than on the part of the individual who is elected, that someone is being put in a position of great power. But in any pattern of government, if it is to work at all, there is always something higher. We recognize that this should be Life, from the true standpoint.

Someone who is put in the White House finds himself put in a box. There is very little freedom of movement there and one has to wonder where the enormous amount of money required to be elected to such a position actually comes from, because I don’t know many people in the world who are going to give away their money for nothing in return. Where you see very large sums of money being bandied around, you may be pretty sure that somebody is going to benefit from it. It may still be the fiction that anyone can become President of the United States, but that’s really not the case anymore, at least not unless you have considerable backing from somewhere. And if you have that backing from somewhere, there is an obligation too, somehow. So there is something higher than the President of the United States, in fact.

DARK FORCE MACHINATIONS OF ANTICHRIST

 Now of course there has always been the idea that there were shadowy figures in the background who were pulling the strings, accomplishing this and that on this basis; but it has been difficult, thus far, for these shadowy figures really to be located. You find someone who is in a position of apparent authority, such as the President of the United States, then you look beyond him to see why he’s there. “Oh he was elected by the people.” Well there were usually just two candidates who have the possibility of being elected, and they were both backed by somebody or other. It doesn’t really matter who’s elected, there is something higher. And whether it is clearly seen or not—it isn’t for the most part—there is always something higher wherever there is government. Here is a principle—because there is no true government on earth without Life, something higher than all those who participate in the processes of government.

We recognize the need for spiritual government and therefore acknowledge that there must be something higher than we are. If we provide the means by which the spiritual government can be extended, we only do that because there is something higher than we are. The same principle holds true in the governments of the world. There is no government that is supreme to itself. It may look that way. This is particularly so in the areas where there are dictatorships—but there is always something back of the dictator; there is always something higher. In this upside-down world we can say it’s higher. It’s really lower until we have the world the right way up.

There are nefarious controls in operation in the world, relative to the governments of the world, which are not on the front pages of the newspaper—because the same sort of controls that are back of the governments are back of the newspapers too. So we have rather a tight situation here which relates to what has been called the antichrist.

If we recognize that there is the Christ (the spirit of Love) springing forth from God (Love), which is the means for true spiritual government on earth, and every place else in the universe as far as that’s concerned, and we see that this operates on the basis of human beings insofar as this world is concerned, then we may recognize that the same principle is at work in the reverse sense, in view of the fact that it might be said that the wetiko virus runs the world the way things are now. Perhaps it’s changing a little. We trust that it certainly will, because we do what is required of us. But there must be human beings to do it. And if there is the government of Love on earth, which is the government of Life on earth in a specific sense relative to this world, then the government of the world as it now is functions on the basis of the same principle, only in the reverse.

WHAT YOU READ IS NOT WHAT’S HAPPENING

We look at the governments of the world as though they were separate entities vying with each other. We know the principle: divide and conquer. So here on the surface are all these things occurring between the countries of the world, between the governments of those countries, which look like conflict and no doubt is warfare. We see the massive confrontation that occurs between the superpowers. And it is supposed that they have sort of traded things off so that a balance might be maintained. But we recognize human nature everywhere. If human nature is on both sides, then the ultimate focus relative to human nature in fact is on both sides. And the fact of sides is something that keeps people from recognizing the truth of the matter. If we can all be embroiled in conflict, then we are looking at happenings that are not the real happenings. The things that are described in newspapers and read about in books for the most part are not the real happenings at all. Political science, for instance, is phony. It’s dealing with things that are on the periphery and never seeing what really is going on behind the scenes. If the reality of divine nature experienced on earth through human form comes to focus somewhere—we have some consciousness of what that focus is—then we may see on the reverse side of the coin that human nature comes to focus somewhere.

In all generations there have been those who have delved—particularly in recent times—into the picture to see if they couldn’t come up with this nefarious bunch who are playing both ends against the middle, and maintaining a focused control relative to what is happening on earth for all people—the antichrist. We could say that if there is a focus of Love, there is a focus of anti-Love. In the true state one might say there isn’t either; there is just the way things are. In view of the false duality that has put in an appearance, we can see from this stance the focus of Love and the focus of anti-Love—disputing over the body of mankind. That dispute comes to focus in Love on one hand and in wetiko on the other hand. The wetiko mind virus requires human form to operate, just as Love requires human form to operate. As there begins to be a focus for the operation of the government of Life on earth, we may recognize that there will be a balancing—seemingly balancing for the moment—focus in form of wetiko.

MONEY, A SUBSTITUTE OPERATING SUBSTANCE

Wetiko is pictured as a rather obvious sort of an entity. He’s really wetikoish! But we know very well that good and evil are opposite ends of the same stick, the stick of human nature. Therefore if you are seeking out some obvious wetiko in human form somewhere, you are not likely to find it. Virtually all the troubles that have come into the world may be traced back to good people. So wetiko would likely be related to some of the best people. This is an interesting thought. But when we come right down to it, we need to recognize two things—one relative to the focus of the government of Love and one relative to the focus of the government of wetiko: in either case it is essential that there should be the substance of operation. We are beginning to become increasingly aware of the spiritual substance essential to government. After the fall of man that spiritual substance insofar as human experience was concerned began to be dissipated quite rapidly. Those who were on hand at that time had some awareness of what was required to maintain government. This spiritual substance was required, but it was dissipated. So there had to be a substitute made which would serve the same purpose, but in the government of wetiko, the government of the anti-Love. We know what that substance is; we know what the substitute for pneumaplasm is; we call it money. Therefore the control of wetiko on earth requires this substance to operate, and it is through this substance that the operation of government is carried on. 

We are aware that there are great concentrations of money in various areas. Do you think all this happened just by chance? Or that conflicts have arisen this way and that way just by chance? There is always seemingly a reasonable explanation. Human nature is very good at that, isn’t it? We have great experience in justifying, excusing ourselves for doing things that we know darn well we shouldn’t do. We have expertise in human nature, which is very competent in rationalizing, explaining away almost anything. This spreads a veil of confusion over the whole human consciousness. You can’t seem to get ahold of anything. And there are all kinds of red herrings flapping around, and people catch sight of these things and go greedily after them with the best of intentions—good people trying to make a better world but doing everything actually to make it worse. And yet you could never convince such good people that what they were doing was destroying the world or playing into the hands of wetiko.

Now, wetiko is very specifically human beings—not the vast majority of the population of the world, but certainly the focus of wetiko could not put in an appearance if there wasn’t something to be focalized. What is focalized is the human nature that is present in everybody.  And if one can devise a method of utilizing human nature which is universally present, then you can really build an empire.  And people have done this—empires have come and gone; great leaders have come and gone. We live in a world these days which has, like it or not, become very much one in the external sense. So the prize is considerable if one is interested in such a prize: the world, to be exact. Heretofore, within recorded history, it has not been the whole world because it wasn’t as unified as it is today—one couldn’t call it unified; but it is in a certain sense, with communications and so on. Here is a prize indeed.

We might recall something with respect to Christ’s experience as it is recorded for us—the occasion of His temptations, as they have been called. The first one was, “Make these stones bread,” and relates in that sense to food, I suppose. The world is full of starving people. Human beings look for bread. One of the best controls that can be exercised over people is to get them hungry. They will do almost anything to get food. So this is a very usual ploy in the world, used at whatever level it may be, sometimes on a grand scale, sometimes on a small scale, a method of keeping human beings subject to the wetiko because they have got to eat, after all. Withhold the food and human beings will behave like animals in the sense of their subconscious drives. They are worse than animals, aren’t they? But it can readily be seen how control can be established over people on the basis of bread. And if people don’t have bread, they are not interested in the word of Life, the proper element of control. They are willing to sell their souls to the wetiko. We can see that that, from the standpoint of those who are starving, is quite reasonable. But there are others who are taking advantage of what human beings do under that sort of a circumstance.

SURENDERING OUR RESPONSIBUITY TO THE GOVERNMENT

Then there was the matter of casting oneself down from the pinnacle of the temple. Nowadays in the welfare states in which we live, there is less and less need to take any responsibility. If human beings relinquish responsibility, they are relinquishing it to someone. It isn’t as though all responsibility vanishes. But someone assumes responsibility and those who have relinquished it are then slaves. Here is a way of convincing people that they are acting for their own benefit by surrendering responsibility. You surrender responsibility to the government. But then, who’s the government? The people you elect or Mr. Moneybags behind the people you elect? And so it’s a sort of con game, isn’t it? Everybody is being conned into surrendering their responsibility in order to receive—they are paying for it with the surrender of their responsibility—in order to receive security; “We will be borne up. It doesn’t matter what we do; somebody is going to hold us up.”  And everybody becomes completely flabby, depending upon everybody else supposedly. It’s a democratic country, after all. When the fact of the matter is that in the surrendering of these responsibilities to some parental government, one is reverting into childhood and is then beholden to whoever it is that has taken over the responsibility. But then you have to keep going back and back and back because whatever level of government may be considered, there is always something beyond it, something higher than that. We see it from the standpoint of municipal government, county government, state government, federal government. Are you going to stop there, do you think? No. There is something back of the federal government. It doesn’t look as though it’s one thing that is back of the federal government of the United States. It doesn’t look as though it’s the same thing that’s back of the federal government of the United States as is back of the government of the Soviets. No, after all these are in conflict. Well as long as everybody can be conned into a consideration of the conflict, the real state of affairs is not seen.

I bring this out so that there may be a recognition that the more the government of Love comes into form and expression on earth, the counterbalance of the government of wetiko appears in focus. If we recognize that the restoration is the restoration of the government of Love through human beings on earth, then from the standpoint of the opposite end of the stick—it’s not the same stick by any manner of means—there is the government of wetiko coming increasingly to focus. This occurs out of the sight of virtually everybody, just as, thankfully, the government of Love has been out of the sight of virtually everybody. But we might anticipate, from the standpoint of the government of wetiko, that somewhere along the way they have it made, as they think, in which case there is no more need to keep out of the sight of anybody, because nobody can do anything about it anyway. It’s a fait accompli.

We see something a little differently here, because the same thing may be said to be true relative to the government of Love. There is a certain point at which it is a fait accompli. The government of wetiko doesn’t know that. It has no way of knowing. In fact what is happening in this unification process from the standpoint of wetiko can be most useful from the standpoint of Life. There is a point when the victory seems sure for wetiko. They can come out of hiding, so to speak. And suddenly everybody is amazed to see what has really been going on and how they have been fooled and conned—and in a position now that they can’t do anything about it. But all the world has been unified in this fashion. Here is an irresistible force present, the government of Love, which can overtop anything that wetiko can do. We think of wetiko as utilizing nuclear weapons, for instance; here is the power. But if you have nobody to fight, if the whole world is enslaved, what do you want these weapons for? They are useless. There is nobody to direct them at. Certainly not against the government of Love, because those who compose that government—who are they? They aren’t all in one place anyway. The only value of nuclear weapons is if you can get everybody in one place.

NO NEED FOR NUCLEAR WEAPONS

This one aspect of the government of wetiko relates to fear, doesn’t it? Fear is something to control people. Get people looking at these fearful things and they are hypnotized. So from the standpoint of individual human beings there is an awful danger here. The thing that is projected is not the danger—nuclear weapons—because if there is in fact a unification taking place in the world, do you suppose that there is likely to be a nuclear war? Those concerned are not interested in destroying themselves. But it’s a good ploy: scare everybody to death—that on the one hand; of course, greed on the other. Greed and fear are the two things which keep human beings in line. People think they are going to benefit by being taken care of so nicely by a government of benefaction. Do you think that’s really what it is? For the moment it seems all right, but gradually the moral fiber is being sapped out of people.

Do you see how it is, that there is nothing that can meet this state of affairs except on the basis of the government of Life—on the basis of those who are no longer in any way subject to the controls which operate to the benefit of wetiko? Could we say that’s true of us yet? If there are some apparent seeming benefits around, well let’s use that to the advantage of doing what needs to be done. We can use wetiko’s weapons against himself. The only way that people subject to human nature can see to deal with such a threat that is present, if they awaken to it, is to get into a battle with it, to protest, to object, and if necessary to pick up baseball bats or whatever and go to war. But against whom? That is not the way. That merely insures the slavery, the subjection. It looks so reasonable and anybody can argue about it. From our standpoint there is only one thing that is reasonable, and that is to stop being subject to wetiko in our own living moment by moment, so that there is something emergent which cannot be manipulated. Greed and fear are the two factors of manipulation. It doesn’t matter what the fear is about, as long as it’s there. And there is the greed element, isn’t there? “Well we want more. We want principally more money.” Aha, that’s the substitute substance, isn’t it? That’s wetiko’s substance. Well if we have some spiritual substance, this substitute substance can be allowed, if it’s freed up, to conform with what is present in the spiritual substance, and therefore be of value. But it isn’t a substance that we would use in any way to manipulate anybody. And we ourselves rightly cannot be manipulated by it.

We participate in the government of Love, which is possible by reason of spiritual substance. Spiritual substance in the government of Life brings everything into the dominion of Life. And we anticipate this. But it is not going to be done by wetiko’s methods. And it’s not going to be done because we get into a battle with wetiko.  It’s not going to be done because we become afraid of what we begin to see—and we are going to need to begin to see what is really happening. We have seen a very low level thus far, never penetrated very far. There are some people in the world who think they have seen something working, but we need to see what is really happening. So I draw all these things to your attention so that you may be aware of the absolutely essential fact of being clear of wetiko, so that nothing of wetiko’s domain can manipulate us. It still does to a certain extent. But by reason of our passion for Life we can be easily brought clear. On no other basis will we be brought clear. Passion for Life: the First Great Commandment. “Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him.” Absolutely! Then we are in position to allow that true government to be a reality on earth and capable of handling anything that wetiko may do.  (Martin Cecil, August 13, 1980)

We’re at war . . . with dark forces of evil over the Body of Mankind and the Earth herself.  However, the lust for power and control is a futile and fatal hunger.  In the larger context, there are cyclical events of cosmic proportion to which those who seek control of the world and ownership of the planet are either totally oblivious or arrogantly ignoring.  As these earth-toppling events unfold—and they will come to pass—the “powers that be” in this world will see their assumed power and control reduced to naught, and that all power and control are, always have been and will ever remain , in the hands of the Lord of hosts. 

Let this war against all that is good, right and holy, be met by the power of Love.  For only love can and will overpower fear, hate and greed.  Lust after Love, the only real Power that is, that cannot be contained, but must be shared and cast abroad.  Hunger and thirst after righteousness.

Reclaiming Our Hearts & Our Home, part 2

I received a response to my last post from my friend and favorite poet, Don Hynes, in which he takes the consideration to another level.  It prompted me to write a second article on the subject of reclaiming our hearts and our home.  Here’s Don’s letter:

Thank you Tony. This is an inspiring and very well presented issue of your blog. I found the interview with Vandana Shiva enlightening and grounded with the facts at hand as presented by RFK Jr.

Gates may be a psychopath but I would guess more likely he feels he is doing good for the world, good in his own eyes. This is the very same problem with human nature in general, doing “good” in their singular mental framework without seeing how ultimately destructive the result. This is why the Master could say, “Father forgive them, they know not what they do.” I’d guess the Pharisees and Sadducees as well as Pilate and the Romans thought they were doing good by attempting to murder Christ Jesus, getting rid of a dangerous radical, ban him from Facebook and Twitter.

What I gather from all this is that the substance of the Lord, of Creation, is present, and though oppressed, is waiting to be activated in a positive and wholesome way. This is the new heaven arising in the east and the new earth that will surely follow.

FROM ANOTHER POINT OF VIEW

IS IT CURTAINS for the human race, or can we save our species from total obliteration, as environmentalists warn we’re headed?  Or is there a plausible alternative view and option?

There may well be both if philanthropist Bill Gates has any credence left in this highly critical social and political environment.  I know that I’ve been looking at Mr. Gates and his philanthropical activities askance over the past year or more, projecting ulterior motives onto his promotion of the Covid-19 vaccines, for one thing.  Well, I suppose someone with lots of money had to do it, even someone who is viewed as a “psychopath,” an impression one may have gotten from Robert Kennedy, Jr’s interview with Dr. Vandana Shiva in my previous post.  I’m not a psychologist, but I don’t believe the term applies in his case.   

In all fairness, and after some critical thinking, I’ve stopped to do a little research and listen to Bill Gates as a fellow human being who, as my poet friend allowed, may simply be doing his part to make the world a better place to live, if only “in his own eyes.” So, let’s have a look and a listen.  After all, it wouldn’t have to change how some of us may view him . . . although it may.  My view and opinion of him and his endeavors have changed considerably, for whatever that’s worth.  

BILL GATE’S VISIONS OF THE FUTURE 

Bill Gates has been developing and promoting ways to “save our planet” for a number of years, funding “Green Energy” endeavors and projects with his considerable wealth, much of it allegedly accruing from his interest in the Covid-19 vaccines.  Bill Gates was worth $125 billion the first of this year, and would be worth much more were he not such a generous philanthropist.  He gained the distinction of “THE richest man in the world” after his successful launching and promoting of Microsoft, currently worth $1.674 trillion on the market. His share of ownership, after stepping down from the company altogether in 2000, is 1.3%, or $7 billion.  

In 2010 he and his wife founded the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation as a vehicle for their philanthropic activities. Ten years ago, Bill and Melinda Gates and Warren Buffett founded the Giving Pledge. Today, there are more than 200 billionaires from across the globe that have pledged to give away most of their fortunes to charity. The Gates foundation today has $50 billion in assets.  Bill and Melinda have pledged billions towards the effort to fight the virus and develop a viable vaccine.

Sadly, lately, Bill Gates has been the target of a number of wild conspiracy theories surrounding the coronavirus pandemic. Fortunately, a post about how Gates has spent decades of his life and many tens of millions of dollars supporting humanitarian causes went viral. The post states the very real fact that Gates has pretty much done “more to better life on earth…than any other human being to ever live.” While this is somewhat hyperbole, the fact is that Gates has given more than $50 billion to charity since 1994. The amazing thing is, his wealth has grown at an even faster pace than he’s given it away.  (Celebrity Net Worth)

Here’s a short clip in which Bill Gates offers an optimistic message about the future:

Listening to this, one could critique it by noting that Bill says nothing about the spiritual dimensions of consciousness as he lists assets along the path we might take, such as education, reduced population growth, extended life span, more science, more global understanding and sense of our common humanity, taking advantage of our innate curiosity and capabilities.  All these things are obviously mental and physical assets and activities that require little spiritual resource other than life energy.  Perhaps that’s not his role to play.  Others are offering spiritual inspiration and guidance of a transformational nature in the multilevel and multidimensional consciousness of the Body of Humanity.  We each have our unique and diverse roles to play.

Returning to Don’s comment above, I am compelled to ask the question “How is the “substance of the Lord, of Creation” going to be “activated in a positive and wholesome way” if not through human beings—through you and me?  We are the appointed keepers of the Garden of Eden here on Earth.  All through our biblical history, the delivery of the Lord’s salvation has been done through human beings: Abraham and Moses, for instance, and later on the Buddha and Jesus—not that I’m equating Bill Gates’ stature with that of the Buddha or Jesus, or even Abraham and Moses.  He is, however, a human being, one of us, who is also providing a dynamic focus of light energy in the field of planetary existential issues that impact all of humanity, such as climate control, global warming and world hunger; added to these now is the fresh water crisis and this pandemic.  His focus is at the mental level, like a light-bearer shining the light of possibilities in the darkness of global fear and uncertainty. 

Don concluded his comment saying “This is the new heaven arising in the east and the new earth that will surely follow.”  Well, I think the new heaven has descended upon human consciousness over the past few decades.  It awaits activation through human beings.  In its own season the new earth will follow and continue to unfold on the planet, and all of us are part of the means by which it unfolds, including Bill Gates and his fellow donors to the “Giving Pledge.”  They are part of the means by which the new earth emerges, perhaps even by which the old earth is held in place long enough for the new earth to take its place without too many perishing?  And perhaps the means by which it passes away.  Is this the provision of the Lord that I am questioning and judging as just another example of human nature’s bright ideas that result in destruction?  There’s nothing wrong or evil about human nature under the dominion and activation of the spirit of God.  It’s only in its self-active state that human nature is lost and therefore dangerous and destructive.  

To be honest, I don’t know how it is all to unfold, other than out of the new heaven. I am giving myself pause in my judgement of wealthy philanthropists in our world today.  Surely even “they” have a purpose in the Divine economy and plan for the restoration, as we each one have.  In reality there is no they, only US.  We are one human race and one Creation under the Sun.  Let me not think that I know what those who take the initiative to do what they see is theirs to do, what they should and shouldn’t do. Let me rather be about what is mine to do while sending them love and gratitude.  For, as the co-founder of Chiropractic Dr. BJ Palmer wrote:

”We never know how far reaching something we may think, say or do today will affect the lives of millions tomorrow.  It’s better to light a candle than curse the darkness.”

Perhaps I’m giving away too much of the store here.  I don’t know.  I want to believe . . . NO, I KNOW that every angel now incarnate on Earth is here to take part in the restoration of the Earth and of Humanity in one form and another, and what Bill Gates’ part is, or anyone else’s part to play, is not my business. It’s the Lord’s business. 

My part is to be about my Father’s business, and writing this blog is just one part of my role at this stage of my earthly sojourn of eighty years.  I write about what’s on my platter in the moment and Bill Gates has been on it for some time.  God bless him . . . and, yes poet, Father forgive him and all others who may not know what they do.  God knows, and that’s enough for me.

Speaking of sending love, during my Attunement sessions these past several days I’ve noticed a marked increase in the intensity of the current of love moving through my heart and hands. We have crossed a threshold into a new dimension and layer of cosmic energy pouring out from the radiant core of the Milky Way Galaxy and of the Sacred Heart of God.  Love’s light is increasing.  Praise be to God in the Highest Heaven.

Do send me your thoughts . . . and your vision for a new world.  I may share them unless you prefer not. Until my next post, 

Be love. Be forgiving

In celebration of the blue-sky sunshiny days we’re having in the aftermath of harsh winter storms, I share this exuberantly jubilant poem by E. E. Cummings, “I Thank You God.”

i thank You God for most this amazing
day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything 
which is natural which is infinite which is yes. 
(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun’s birthday; this is the birthday
of life and of love and wings: and of the gay great
happening illimitably earth)

“Rewilding The World”. . . . . . To Save Our Planet and Ourselves

Sir David Attenborough and BBC have produced a sobering, yet hopeful, documentary entitled OUR PLANET a couple of years ago which is being featured on NETFLIX as a television series.  We’ve seen a few of the episodes and I have to say I am shocked and saddened by the reduction in the size and scope of the earth’s wilderness and utter destruction of wildlife and their natural habitats.  Their numbers have decreased at an alarming rate pretty much in proportion with the rate of exponential growth of the human population. 

David’s answer to saving the world and the human race is largely based on what he calls “rewilding the world“— since we depend on a balanced and healthy biosphere in which wild animals play an integral and important role. They are not separate from us in the ecosystem.  Our existence is dependent upon how we live on this planet in balance with Nature.  This is not the case now and hasn’t been for several decades. 

Just this year David published a message to humanity, and last year he produce “A Life on our Planet,” a trailer of which I’ve posted below. I invite and encourage you to take the time to view the videos below.  It’s past time we do something to save our planet . . .  and ourselves.  Take 12 minutes out of your day to spend with David Attenborough via these three clips. Let the information and messages he presents enter the larger consciousness of humanity through your consciousness.  When you’ve finished viewing them, share this post with your friends and relatives.  And if you have NETFLIX, look for David’s documentaries and enjoy them.  I am finding them most inspiring and hopeful. The photography alone is incredible, taking you up close and personal to these beautiful creatures, both great and small, where you can hear them breathing.  I am moved to tears at times seeing the beauty of our planet and its wild inhabitants and seeing how badly we’re treating them.  I am so aware that the Creators enjoys his/her creation through our eyes and ears.  Lend them yours.  Enjoy!

APRIL 2019 — “REWILDING THE WORLD”

SEPTEMBER 2020 — A Life On Our Planet

JAUARY 1, 2021 — A Message from David Attenborough

There are many authors and concerned planetary citizens, such as Richard Heinberg (The End of Growth) and Sir David Attenborough, who have been sounding the alarm and wakeup call for at least half a century.  Yet little has been done in the way of significant and essential changes in the industrial complexes of human society. Well, we’ve run out of time.  The eleventh hour has struck.  The brick wall is right in front of our faces: “THUS FAR AND NO FURTHER” reads the handwriting on the wall — Simon and Garfunkel’s “words of the prophets . . . written on the subway walls And tenement halls, And whispered in the sound of silence.”  The whispers and silence of the sixties have been shattered by the shout-outs of Sir David Attenborough, Richard Heinberg and others.  The question is, Who’s listening?  

Apparently, Some Are Listening.

We do see some withdrawal from fossil fuels taking place in certain countries.  Here in the U.S. President Biden is focusing his attention on clean renewable energy, intent on weening America from fossil fuels altogether in two or three decades.  It appears this trend in the area of renewable energy alone has gone global.  It’s a start, but we’re still cutting it close.

There are other areas calling out to us for stewardship, as Sir Attenborough features in his documentaries. Coral reefs are bleaching in warming and acidic sea waters and dying, along with their aquatic inhabitants.  Palm oil farms in Africa are replacing wildlife habitats, driving our apian brothers and sisters out of their familiar dwellings into smaller forests.

On the High Seas, the ocean home of Blue Whales is under threat.  Unsustainable fishing is depleting the coastal herring fish that whales and sea lions feed and depend on.  In some coastal sea waters, fishing restrictions are being put in place where cormorants and boobies feed on sardines and anchovies, allowing our airborne creatures to multiply and grow.  Biodiversity is increasing in protected areas allowing the fish population to increase in number, eventually spilling over into fishable waters, benefitting both sea and human life. 

But in the wild, grasslands are being lost to agriculture, except in places like Mongolia where wild horses survive and thrive — and in India where the great grasslands are aggressively protected.  Where the grasslands are protected, the grazing herds are bouncing back. (www.ourplanet.com)

I am encouraged by Sir Attenborough’s documentary OUR PLANET that we can do this: restore our planet’s wilderness to a healthy and balanced ecosystem, the very foundation upon which the human species entirely depends for its survival and longevity.  So, let’s just do it, by God, the only way we can do it.  Although David refers to the planet as “our planet,” Earth does not belong to us.  We are tenants along with the inhabitants of the wild kingdom, put here to steward this Garden of Eden and care for the birds of the air and fishes of the sea and the creatures that crawl upon the earth.  In the words of the psalmist: 

“The earth is the LORD’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.” (Psalm 24)

We were given dominion over creation, not ownership. The word dominion literally means lordship.  As lords and ladies under the loving reign of the Lord of lords, we tend the Garden in partnership with Nature.

I welcome any thoughts you may wish to share.  Until my next post,

By love.  Be loved

Anthony
