The Candidates, Aquarian or Piscean?

The Candidates, Aquarian or Piscean?

I have noted before that the vast majority of Bailey students as well as new agers in general support the politics of the left. My estimate is that around 80-90% of them take this stand.

That is fine. I realize that many seekers and even initiates may disagree with each other on a number of things. The great work will still go forward if all do their best in seeing the soul within their fellow workers.

On the other hand, something about this upcoming election has brought out the worst in many people high and low in evolution.

In some circles people are not only plugging Bernie Sanders for president, but insulting anyone who may wind up voting for Donald Trump. Hillary is kind of seen that a middle of the road candidate and her supporters, though not cutting edge, are given a pass.

The talk of Bernie Sanders vs Trump goes something like this.

Bernie represents the Aquarian age, the Brotherhood of Light, reflects the teachings of DK and the Masters. If Bernie can get elected spiritual evolution will receive a great shot in the arm. Those who support him are the more enlightened of society.

Trump, on the other hand, is said to represent the old ways of the Piscean age. He is a strong authority patterned after the likes of Hitler and Mussolini and needs to be defeated at all costs. His supporters must be backward indeed for anyone in contact with the Christ within would surely shun the guy and support Bernie.

Since I would vote for Trump over either Bernie or Hillary this then places me with the Neanderthals and zealots of the Piscean age that is supposed to be dying out. It looks like my hand is forced to stand up for truth as I see it.

Here is the question to ask. Does Trump really represent the passing age of Pisces that must be discarded and does Bernie herald the Age of Aquarius?

Let us look at Bernie first. Why do his followers associate him with the age of Aquarius and the Brotherhood of Light?

There is basically one reason for this and that is that Bernie is a big government socialist and hopes to transform America into a socialist utopia. Because many new agers love their ideal of socialism being forced upon the people they equate this with the coming age of Aquarius, not the passing age of Pisces.

So, is Bernie’s idea of socialism really Aquarian in nature or is it from the old order of things?

To answer this we must realize that there are two basic types of socialistic endeavors. One is accomplished by force through the strong authority of a powerful government and the other is accomplished through free will cooperative endeavors.

Both have been around since the beginning of civilization and both existed in the days of Jesus. At that time Rome was the entity that had great authority over the lives of the people and they taxed the people to provide various social programs for the citizens.

There is not one instance of Jesus supporting such an endeavor. The only mention of taxes in relation to Jesus was a criticism that he was not paying them. (See Matt 17:24-27)

On the other hand, Jesus was an advocate of free will socialism. He told his followers to donate directly to the poor. That was a much different injunction than if he had advocated paying higher taxes for Caesar so the state could redistribute more wealth.

Today we see many examples of the type of free will socialism as advocated by Jesus in the various churches. They collect free will offerings and redistribute the wealth to the poor. The Salvation Army is a great example of this.

Other examples of free will socialism are various insurance plans that customers can take or leave, community gardens and employee-owned businesses. Free will socialism rises or falls its own merits whereas government enforced socialism can just tax the people more to compensate for a program that is not efficient or badly managed.

So which kind of socialism better represents the new Age of Aquarius?

The obvious answer is free will socialism. The Age of Pisces was governed by strong authority and powerful control over the people by both church and state. America struck a great blow at the powerful authority of the beast with the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution that limited the powers of outer authorities, especially the government.

The Great Seal of the United States struck the keynote of the new Aquarian Age with the words, Novus ordo seclorum, Latin for “New Order of the Ages.”

And what was this new order of the ages supposed to be? It was a limited government supporting a free people free from the control of strong authority and free from taxation without representation.

Socialism enforced by powerful authority represents the passing age whereas socialism by maximum free will is an ingredient of the new. The falling of the Berlin wall and the Old Soviet Union signaled the failure of strong social Piscean ideals enforced by strong authority.

In addition to strong authority let us look at another characteristic of the Piscean age. Pisces is the strongest water sign and water is a symbol of the emotions. Aquarius is an air sign and air is a symbol of the mind. DK tells us that the great shift of focus to move us into the new age is a change from polarization in the emotional energies to that of the mind.

Pisces is governed by the sixth ray of whose keynote is idealism which works hand in hand with emotional energy. Emotion fixes the image of the ideal in the mind and adds to its power over the individual. Conversely, emotion attaches itself to the ideal and seeks to manifest it any way it can, even if the rights of others are trampled upon.

Christ presented the divine ideal that stimulated the higher emotion of love, but the flaws of men degenerated the two from being centered in the heart to the solar plexus. We thus saw much that was negative manifested though emotion and idealism during the Age of Pisces. Examples range from the Roman Empire to the crusades, the inquisition, The French revolution and the bloodbath that followed, to burning witches at the stake to slavery, to the Communist Revolution and the idealist authoritarian rule afterwards.

The air sign Aquarius promises a move from idealism, sacrifice and strong emotional authority to a period of time where people will be polarized in the mind and discover the joys of living in a reasonable and logical world governed by wise choices.

Will the Aquarian Age be a replay of the Piscean where we start with a great example and degenerate into the wrong use of mind, which can slay the real and enhance darkness if misdirected?

The expectation of the Hierarchy is that this will not be the case. They tell us that humanity has made major strides in spiritual evolution and we are at the cusp of entering the world of mind, “the plane whereon the Masters can be found.

Part of the reason that a grand opportunity awaits us is that we are not entering a normal Age of Aquarius. Instead, the age we are entering is a lesser age within a cycle of Aquarius that is much greater, over 25,000 years. These strong energies of mind related to service only come along with a double potion about once every 310,000 years. The last time it happened Atlantis was flourishing.

We have just moved over the cusp of the new sign but the old energies of Pisces are fighting strong for survival. They are like the power of a great Dweller on the Threshold fighting for its own survival seeking to hold us back. The old Pisces emotional and authoritarian energies are powerful indeed because the majority of humanity is still strongly polarized in their emotional astral self. They are influenced more by slogans and catchphrases than logic and reason. The emotional pull is so strong that it is likely to take us a couple hundred more years for humanity to take full advantage of the Aquarian energies of mind.

Until humanity itself makes the shift that catches us up with the shift already made in the Zodiac the negative energies of lower emotion and fixed idealism will pull strongly upon us.

When we look at Bernie Sanders we see a person fixed very strongly, not in the Aquarian energies of mind, but in the Piscean energies of idealism authoritarianism, dominated by strong emotion that often does not listen to reason.

The obvious sign of the Piscean, sixth ray idealist is a life that is spent endorsing and promoting an ideal within the mind, but making little if any headway in accomplishing anything of practical value.

This description fits Bernie very precisely. Up to about the age of forty he spent his time promoting his ideals not even having a full time job, accomplishing little of value – not even writing a treatise or book of significance. Then when he did get a full time job it was in the government. He’s never been involved substantially in any private enterprise that creates a thing of value.

Speaking of a dreamer who never accomplishes anything DK says:

A dreamer whose dreams never materialise, a builder who stores up material which he never employs, a visionary whose visions are of no use to gods or men, is a clog upon the system universal. He is in great danger of atrophying.

Letters On Occult Meditation, Page 97

Bernie is indeed a visionary who wants the world to conform to his ideals but so far has made little happen in that direction for which he is responsible.

If he were to become president would he then have his great opportunity or would he wind up just being “a clog upon the system universal”?

We have already had a number of presidents who have accomplished little and either just maintained the status quo or got in the way of Aquarian energies. We do not need another one.

As stated, one of the hallmarks of the Piscean age is the strong emotion that accompanies it. It is the most heavily weighed water sign and water is a symbol of emotion. Powerful misplaced idealism and raw solar plexus emotion dominated much of that age. The quintessential example is perhaps the French Revolution. It was led by a number of idealists with strong feelings who promised a better world for the common man. Maximilien Robespierre was one of the leaders promoting hope and change but wound up incorporating a reign of terror that made the world shiver with abhorrence. It became so bad that he became of victim of his own methods and was himself guillotined without the benefit of a trial.

So, does Bernie and his supporters show signs of wrongheaded zeal in furthering the ideal and destroying the opposition.

Indeed they have. They have made every effort to not only stop Trump from speaking or being heard when he does speak, but they have blocked traffic, tried to shut down main roads leading to Trump rallies and crash the meetings and attempt to prevent anyone but themselves from being heard. A recent (as of this writing) example of their shenanigans happened Friday March 27 in California as CNN reported that about 35 people were arrested by police in riot gear. These people were out of control resisting every effort of the police to protect attending Trump supporters from harm.

Ever since thousands of protesters were able to completely shut down a Trump rally in Chicago last March they have been charged up wanting to create more mayhem and interfere with freedom of speech in any way possible.

All but the conservative media have given mere surface coverage to the forceful attacks of the Sanders supporters until it affected their own party. When the Sanders supporters threatened violence at the Nevada Democratic convention, then the left leaning media gave some serious attention to the matter.

Here is a clip from an article in Newsweek:

The unseemly tirade of Sanders supporters was a marvel, the kind of behavior more likely to be seen among British soccer hooligans than people claiming to be interested in politics. A chair was thrown. People screamed “bitch!” at Senator Barbara Boxer, a staunch liberal from California. Even the Nevada state Democratic chairwoman, Roberta Lange, who had endorsed Sanders, needed a security detail just to go to the bathroom in order to protect her from the hypocritical “humanity lovers” who seem to hate everyone but themselves and their idol. Afterward, the goons kept up their hostile hysterics. Protesters vandalized the offices of the state Democratic Party. Lange’s personal contact information, including her cell phone number, were posted online, and she has since received thousands of death threats, according to state party officials. One of the text messages to Lange said, “Praying to god someone shoots you in the FACE and blows your democracy-stealing head off!” (Only in the delusions of Sanders-land could democracy be stolen when the winner of the popular vote was winning.) Voicemail obtained by Jon Ralston, the dean of Nevada political reporters, contain such delightful statements as, “People like you should be hung in a public execution…. You are a sick, twisted piece of sh*t, and I hope you burn for this!” And, “You f**king stupid bitch! What the hell are you doing? You’re a f**king corrupt bitch!” And, “You’re a c*nt. F**k you!” And, “You probably just guaranteed fire is in Philadelphia.” Yeah, these are exactly the kind of people who Americans want to have as the next president’s base—vicious, sociopathic misogynists.

LINK

Barbara Boxer, a long time Democratic stalwart reported to CNN, “I feared for my safety and I had a lot of security around me … I’ve never had anything like this happen. It was a scary situation … If I didn’t have a lot of security, I don’t know what would have happened.”

Through all these disruptions and infringements on free speech and threats of violence Bernie has mostly just stood back giving the impression that he silently approves of such behavior.

All this brings to mind a saying from Jesus,

Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Matt 7:16-20

Part of Bernie’s fruit are the out of control supporters and that fruit is quite distasteful.

“But,” says the Bernie supporter, “everyone knows that the Trump people are the ones who are really out of control and should be feared.”

If one only listens to the reporting of the left this opinion is understandable for Trump and his supporters are presented as being a fearsome and violent bunch.

Here are the facts. All the problems at Trump rallies are created by Bernie supporters (maybe a few from Hillary) creating blockades harassing otherwise peaceful Trump attendees and forcing themselves into rallies creating mayhem to interrupt free speech.

If this infringement happened to any other group on the planet there would be some negative reaction take place. Let a thousand protesters try to stop Pope Frances from speaking to a large group and see what happens. Believe me, as saintly as you may think the Pope and his supporters are you can bet there would be some type of negative response take place.

The fact is this. All the attacks with intent to disrupt have come from the left, from Bernie and Hillary supporters, not from Trump. Of all the 17 original Republican candidates there has not been one group of any of their supporters who have attended a Bernie or Hillary rally and attempted to shut them down.

Now considerer what would have been reported if a couple thousand Trump supporters crashed a Bernie rally and blocked toads and entrances. You can bet that the Bernie people would have reacted violently and the supportive media would have placed all the blame on Trump.

When you tabulate the number of defensive attacks by Trump supporters, made only at Trump rallies which have been invaded, you have to give them credit for restraint, instead of blaming them for the problem. If Bernie supporters had remained peaceful there wouldn’t have been enough negativity from the Trump people to make any news.

So, let us examine these two groups – Bernie and Trump supporters. The Trump people just want to attend their guy’s gathering, listen and then go home in peace. On the other hand, the Bernie people are just not happy leaving well enough alone. They feel they must invade the space of the Trump people and prevent them from even hearing their guy. This is sad indeed and certainly does not speak for Bernie as one who is a herald of the new Age of Aquarius.

Another point to consider is that Aquarius is ruled by Uranus which is dominated by the seventh ray. On top of this the seventh ray is coming into incarnation and having an increased influence as we move into the new age. This means that if we want to find a true Aquarian candidate we would want to see aspects of the seventh ray manifested.

The seventh ray governs business, finance, organizational ability, ceremony and law.

Bernie is the strongest anti business, anti finance with the least organizational experience in the presidential equation and Hillary is not far behind. In many cases he does not support compliance with the law.

Trump on the other hand, is very strong seventh ray in this regard He has been in business all his life and has had many dealings with the financial world. He also runs and has run a number of large organizations. He is also a supporter of obedience to law. As far as the seventh ray aspect goes Trump is the Aquarian candidate, hands down.

As far as the sun signs of the candidates go Trump is a Gemini, Bernie is a Virgo and Hillary a Scorpio. Aquarius is an air sign and Trump is the only one who has a corresponding air sign – Gemini. Bernie’s is an earth sign and Hillary in Scorpio is a water sign. In fact water related to the age of Pisces is very strong in her chart.

Air and space exploration is also strongly related to Aquarius. Through the years Bernie has been one of the least supportive in Congress of the space program. He says that social programs are much more important than exploring space. Hillary has a similar attitude, but not as pronounced.

Trump not only has his own private jet but has been a supporter of space exploration and strongly criticized Obama for cutting funds. He wants to get the space program revitalized after he gets the economy headed the right direction.

Another strong characteristic of the Aquarian Age will be law which is an aspect of the seventh ray which is both coming into incarnation as well as being strong in Aquarius by being the dominate ray of Uranus which rules this sign.

So, why is law and order an Aquarian characteristic? After all, many new agers kind of see the coming new age as something existing in a laid back atmosphere where people do their own thing, kind of like a hippie commune satiation.

The hippies had their place in our societal evolution, but their casual adherence to law was not what we were supposed to incorporate from them.

Many seekers do not realize the importance of law and associate law and order with the old age that needs to be left behind. Nothing could be further from the truth. Laws that are accepted and respected are essential to create a peaceful, strong and progressive society. Where there is a breakdown of law you have a descent into either chaos, tyranny, or both.

When you have laws that are properly enforced and respected by the people as being just then you have a general population that can plan their careers, their activities, their recreation, their gatherings, their families, their business etc in a methodical order which can achieve positive results. Without good law constructive progress is greatly hindered.

What interferes with the implementation of constructive law? There are a number of items.

(1) A leader or leaders taking too much authority to themselves so that their word is law above that of the written law passed by legislative bodies. In tyrannies many victims may not break any law but merely offend some authority and are punished on a whim.

(2) Authorities that are tolerated in picking and choosing which laws are to be enforced.

We have a prime example of this with immigration. Many authorities are choosing to ignore immigration laws thus creating a volatile situation where many are upset and few are satisfied.

Many think laws should be ignored if they are seen as bad, but no less than Abraham Lincoln, a quintessential Aquarian, would disagree. Some of the worst laws we have had concerned slavery, yet even though he strongly disagreed with them he recognized the importance of adhering to law to prevent chaos. He had the attitude of supporting written law whether it be good or bad, but then worked to change that which did more harm than good. On this note he made one of the greatest changes in law in history and became the Great Emancipator, bringing freedom to the slaves.

To have a stable society we must follow Lincoln’s example. We should follow existing law, but then change that which does not work with better law.

If we think immigration law on the books is wrong then we should not ignore it, but work to change it and improve it.

Trump has been strongly criticized for expressing intent to enforce immigration law, even though he says he will create a wide door to let the harmless ones back in. What the critical new agers do not understand is that this is the correct attitude of the true leader in the coming Aquarian Age. Such a leader must be like Lincoln and work with existing law, but then make effort to change it if it is imperfect.

Picking and choosing which laws we will enforce as Bernie and Hillary are doing is not the Aquarian way.

(3) Too many laws and rules. If there are too many laws then confusion results. People will be breaking the law just because they do not even know it exists or the shear number can create frustration and chaos.

An example was Obamacare which consisted of thousands of pages. Few read much of it before voting and afterwards even supporters found problems with the wording.

The key to order is not to pass lots of law but pass essential and just law and then enforce it. Once we realize the importance of this we can begin to create a society worthy of the New Age of Aquarius.

I could go on and write a book on this subject, but this will have to suffice for the moment. There should be enough food for thought here to convince the objective reader that it is wrong headed to just make the knee jerk assumption that Bernie is the herald of the Aquarian Age. A Piscean idealist does not an Aquarian make.

The Trump Category

March 7, 2016

The Trump Category

lwk Quotes me as follows:

“…the dark brothers are dishonest and they will lie to you and never tell you exactly what they believe and what they think. You cannot tell what they believe by listening to them. They will tell you what they believe is necessary to get them elected or gain your trust.”

Then makes this comment:

Sounds exactly like Donald Trump in spades. How so many people place any trust in him given his history is amazing. The ability of humans to practice self deception is amazing. Trump wrote “The Art of the Deal” and proved over and over again he would renege on any deal he could if it was in his interest at the time.

JJ

I wouldn’t put Trump in the same category as the numerous politicians, past and present, who try and present themselves as different than they really are in order to get elected.

There are generally two types who run for office.

The first category is in the minority, and that is the fairly honest politician who is up front about his beliefs and tells the people what he will do. If he is asked a question he will give a reasonably honest answer.

Examples of this first category are Ted Cruz, Ben Carson and Bernie Sanders.

The more common politician will tell his or her voters what he thinks they want to hear in order to get their trust and their votes. It is not until they get elected and we actually see their actions in office that we see what their core beliefs are and how they stand up under pressure.

The strange thing is that even when many politicians betray the trust of their voters they are still able to come back and lie to them near election day and make them think their vote of betrayal was justified, or an anomaly, and that they have listened to the common guy, get the message and will really represent them this time.

Examples of politicians who say what people want to hear to get elected are President Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton and Marco Rubio.

This category of politician fools many of the common people who do not pay attention, but they always give clues in advance that are available for those who are alert.

Obama was one of the best in recent times at presenting a false image of himself and what he was going to do.

When campaigning in 2008 he convinced many that he was all for fiscal responsibility. He was going to go through that budget line by line and streamline and trim like no president ever has. He would save us more than Obamacare was going to cost. In fact the average person would pay over $2000 less for insurance.

He said he was a big supporter of the Constitution and the Second Amendment and reasonable free enterprise. He was not a socialist by any means, just a common sense guy who believed in fairness and giving people a shot at the American Dream.

He presented himself as a standard Christian who wasn’t aware of the inflammatory words spoken by his minister of 20 years, Jeremiah Wright.

Sure, he said he was going to fundamentally transform America, but that was going to be a good thing that everyone was going to love.

Those who paid attention were not fooled and not surprised by anything he did or attempted to do while in office.

Those who read his book, Dreams of My Father, saw that he had many radical socialist and communist influences that he embraced in his youth.

Those who watched the interview with Joe the Plumber got a giant hint about his true feelings of sharing the wealth.

Those who heard his leaked speech condemning those “who cling to their guns and religion” got an idea as to his true feelings toward standard Christians and Second Amendment supporters.

I also heard a teacher from the University of Chicago testify that Obama had told him when teaching there that he didn’t agree with the Second Amendment and he would disarm the people if there was a way to do it.

The only thing that Obama has done that surprised me was how much money he has spent. I knew he was going to be a big spender and was not going to trim the budget as he promised, but $10 trillion? Now that’s a lot of money. Up to $6-7 trillion was more in the range of my expectations, though his outrageous spending was not completely off my radar. I would have thought that some Democrats would have been alarmed with the massive borrowing, but many of them think he has not burrowed enough. It is like insanity is a contagious disease going around.

Now I see Donald Trump as being in a third category – I would call this the Dealmaker. The last real dealmaker we had as president was Lyndon Johnson, but there is a difference between him and Trump. Johnson’s top priority was his own agenda and power. I think Trump really is motivated to run because he thinks he can fix some of the messes we have gotten ourselves into. He likes personal power but fixing our major problems comes first in his mind, rather than just enjoying the perks of being president.

I do not see it as being deceptive to start with an outrageous offer and then modifying it to reach a deal. In deal making it is expected that the first offer may not be the final one. If I am at a garage sale and offer $10 for an item that does not mean that I will not pay $15 if I think the deal is worth it.

If elected I would expect that Donald will do his best to get the economy moving again and negotiate better deals with our potential enemies as well as friends.

I have two concerns with him. The first is that he may be too authoritarian and bypass Congress to get his way as has Obama.

The second is that if he is too harsh on his trade restrictions with China that China could retaliate and we could face physical conflict.

Japan attacked us at the beginning of World War II partially because of trade restrictions that starved them of raw materials.

I have concerns with all the candidates. You never know what you will get until the person is in office for a while.

Let us hope the best person wins.

Richard:

The left is ruled by the academic community

JJ

This does indeed seem to be true. In most colleges fewer than 10% of the professors are Republicans. This seems to have been the trend for about a century or so.

It is interesting that many of our liberal universities though were founded by very conservative Christians. It would be interesting to calculate how long this liberal/conservative educational cycle is. I would guess we will be swinging back toward the conservative cycle within the next few years. Both cycles have their good and bad points, but each new cycle brings us closer toward the center.

Trump Supporters

Jan 30, 2016

Trump Supporters

I read the article about Trump referenced by lwk and I must say that he really plays loose with the facts and seems to have a great bias against Trump. He draws conclusions that are not based on any recognized reality. For instance, Mr. Schwimmer says:

“Here is a man who has never held public office and has achieved less in business than Paris Hilton.”

True, he has never held public office but to say he has achieved less in business than Paris Hilton is madness. Paris has never managed a multi billion dollar enterprise, never made deals comparable to Trump and never built or managed any huge real estate endeavors, never authored a best selling how-to-succeed book and never had people support her for president. True they both had television shows, but Trump’s required a lot of savvy and judgment whereas Paris just had to be her silly self.

In his book, The Art of the Deal Trump describes a typical day:

Most people are surprised by the way I work. I play it very loose. I don’t carry a briefcase. I try not to schedule too many meetings. I leave my door open. You can’t be imaginative or entrepreneurial if you’ve got too much structure. I prefer to come to work each day and just see what develops.

There is no typical week in my life. I wake up most mornings very early, around six, and spend the first hour or so of each day reading the morning newspapers. I usually arrive at my office by nine, and I get on the phone. There’s rarely a day with fewer than fifty calls, and often it runs to over a hundred. In between, I have at least a dozen meetings. The majority occur on the spur of the moment, and few of them last longer than fifteen minutes. I rarely stop for lunch. I leave my office by six-thirty, but I frequently make calls from home until midnight, and all weekend long.

It never stops, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I try to learn from the past, but I plan for the future by focusing exclusively on the present. That’s where the fun is. And if it can’t be fun, what’s the point?

I would guess that is much different than a typical day for Paris Hilton.

Schwimmer continues:

“who, except for the real estate knowledge, connections, and fortune, all of which he inherited from his father.”

Trump helped his father’s real estate business become successful and when he branched out on his own he borrowed $1 million from him. His father was never worth more than about $250 million and had five children to divide up the inheritance at his death. Trumps assets today are valued at $10 billion so obviously he did not inherit this from his father. His father, I’m sure was helpful, but not the cause of his success.

Schwimmer

“has failed at pretty much everything except real estate and, of course, self-promotion;

That’s like saying Bill Gates has failed at everything except his business ventures. Until running for president, real estate and his TV show were his main focus so calling him a failure in all but this is strange indeed. He co-produced and starred in the very successful Apprentice for over a decade.

Schwimmer

who touts himself as a champion of the little guy

I’ve never seen him do this. He talks about greater prosperity for all Americans.

Schwimmer

“switched political party affiliations at least five times since the late ’80s, according to voting records.”

He’s been a registered Republican since 1988. Reagan also switched parties.

Schwimmer

Who says he will “bomb the **** out of” ISIS” but is afraid of a five-foot-six blonde bombshell.

We do not know that. Many think this was merely a strategy to put the focus on Cruz and take him out as a competitor.

Next Schwimmer tells us we should not support Trump because he referenced Second Corinthians 3:17 as Two Corinthians 3:17. He was technically correct, but that is not the way fundamentalist believers reference scripture. So trump is not a big Bible scholar and doesn’t use the lingo. Who cares!

Then Schwimmer reminds us that Trump tells us he will make deals with all kinds of entities, including Democrats. He seems to think this is a terrible thing.

What is terrible is making bad deals. If a deal is good and benefits the deal maker’s side then why complain? The Republicans are terrible at making deals that benefit them. Instead they go along with the Democrats and doing this is called a deal. If they make no movement to fulfill promises to those who elected them then the deal is bad. For instance, budget deals that needlessly increased our debt are bad deals for all.

Trump has proven himself to be a good deal maker. Schwimmer seems to think he will use this talent as president, not to help America, but only himself. I see no evidence of this. One of the main deals he says he would like to have a part in is making a better deal with Iran so they do not obtain power to lob nuclear missiles our direction. Sure, that is in Trump’s best interest, but also the best interest of you, me, the whole country and world.

Schwimmer then goes on implying that Trump supporters are bordering on madness and delusion, following him without reason as if he were the second coming of Jesus.

There are a number of candidates I like and would be much happier to have as president than Obama, but I support none of them blindly.

I do not think I would get everything I want in Trump but one thing I like about him is that he understands the value of a dollar and knows how to get things done. Right now our biggest problem is our perilous economical situation and increasing debt. I believe he has the intelligence to set the economy on a stable footing and eliminate some of the wasted spending.

He is the only one running for president who has run a major business.

Back in the 1990s Trump was about two billion dollars in debt. That would have finished a lesser man. Of this time he said: “I refused to give in to the negative circumstances and I never lost faith in myself. I didn’t believe I was finished even when the newspapers were saying so. I refused to give up. Defeat is not in my vocabulary.”

Instead of giving up he focused and turned an apocalyptic situation into great success. He is noted in The Guinness Book of Records as having the biggest financial turnaround in history.

That’s not proof that he can do that for America, but it gives us more than the blind faith that Schwimmer accuses supporters as having.

The Pope and The Donald

This entry is part 18 of 73 in the series 2015

The Pope and The Donald

I believe that Pope Francis is the first pontiff in history to single out the United States as the evil empire. He hasn’t used that exact phrase, but his criticisms of us reveal that he sees us this way.

First, he criticizes us as being unchristian and greedy because of our free enterprise and capitalism. He seems to think that Jesus wants us enter into the forced sharing programs advocated by socialists and communists rather than leaving sharing up to Christian free will.

Then he lectures to us about destroying the planet though burning fossil fuels, as if we are the only country who has inhabitants driving cars and heating our homes. I wonder if he would have the courage to go to China or Russia and tell them their way of life runs contrary to God’s will.

Then he breaks down the barrier between church and state and addresses both the U.N. and the United States Congress.

Now he adds fuel to political/religious fire and division he has created by attacking a leading presidential candidate. On Thursday, Feb 18, he was asked his views on Donald Trump. The interviewer told the pontiff that Trump “said that if he were elected president he would build a 2,500-km wall along the border. He wants to deport 11 million illegal immigrants.”

To this Pope Francis said

“A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian. This is not in the gospel. … I say only that this man is not Christian if he says things like that.”

Well, Donald did say things exactly like that so Pope Francis is definitely stating that Trump is not a Christian.

Some are trying to whitewash the Pope’s statement saying he didn’t mention Donald by name, but this is silly because the question specifically mentioned him by name meaning the answer was directed specifically at Donald Trump.

To his credit Trump didn’t take the accusation lying down. He said:

“No leader, especially a religious leader, should have the right to question another man’s religion or faith,” He added that people in the government of Mexico “made many disparaging remarks about me to the Pope.”

Then he wrapped it up with this creative possibility:

“If and when the Vatican is attacked by ISIS, which as everyone knows is ISIS’s ultimate trophy, I can promise you that the Pope would have only wished and prayed that Donald Trump would have been president.”

So, is the Pope justified in attacking Trump as being unchristian for wanting to build a wall to keep illegals out? Is there anything in the Bible that teaches against keeping out undesirables with walls?

To the contrary the scripture are full of support for wall building. The first thing David did when he established the city that would become Jerusalem was to build more walls.

Later the city was destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar, but after a period of captivity the Jews rejoiced when Ezra and Nehemiah were allowed to return to Jerusalem and rebuild its walls and so Israel could dwell there safely.

Jerusalem has been famous throughout history as the walled city, but the real clincher in this story is not the Old Jerusalem, but the New Jerusalem. The New Jerusalem is portrayed in the New Testament as the City of God where dwells God and the redeemed. Of this it is written:

“Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife. And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, Having the glory of God … And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels.” Rev 21:9-12

And why does God’s own city have a wall? It is to keep out those who are not citizens of the kingdom of God for the following scripture says:

“And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.” Rev 21:27

“Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without (outside the wall) are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.” Rev 22:14-15

Someone needs to tell the Pope that even God needs a wall to keep out those who are not authorized citizens of is kingdom.

It’s almost funny when you think of it, especially when you consider that the Vatican has a giant wall 50 feet high and has such strict immigration rules that Donald Trump looks like Mother Teresa by comparison.

The United States should be the last country that Pope Francis should preach about inclusiveness as we take in more immigrants here than any other nation.

In 2013, approximately 41.3 million immigrants lived in the United States and if we add in U. S. born children the number reaches 80 million or about a quarter of our population.

By contrast the whole United Kingdom only has about a half million, France 332,000, Germany, 693,000 and Italy, wherein lies the Vatican only 307,000 less than one percent of the USA. Then as far as the nation which is called the Vatican goes one is much more likely to win the lottery than become a legal immigrant there.

With such a huge number of immigrants already here it is only logical that we should follow the example set by the Christian God and his city, and establish rules and secure our borders so we can make sure that decent people are allowed to come in and to keep out those that would do us damage.

Handwriting Analysis of Prominent 2016 Presidential Candidates

Jan 23, 2016

Handwriting Analysis of

Prominent 2016 Presidential Candidates

 

Donald Trump

Donald has the most interesting handwriting of any recent presidential candidate. He is the most intelligent candidate since JFK.

trump-hw

 

What is quite interesting is that he is not seeking attention toward self so he can get recognition and draw attention, as is the case with most candidates. Indeed he draws attention, but not because of a personal need, but because of his passion, intelligence and charismatic personality. Most any project he tackles with his creative mind will draw attention to himself whether he wants it or not. He is not the egomaniac that is conjured up in the minds of his enemies. He draws attention to himself to further his goals, not for a need for attention.

The thing that stands out in the handwriting is the great difference between his regular handwriting and his signature.

The signature shows how the person presents himself to the world and the regular handwriting reveals more of what the person is like away from the spotlight.

You’ll notice that his signature has sharp points in every stroke, almost like spikes whereas the regular writing is much softer. The signature gives the impression that if you mess with him you will suffer puncture wounds. That is what he wants you to think. He is indeed the dealmaker he claims to be. His tactic is to come across as hard as nails, but then when the real negotiations get underway he will soften up, make friends and the guy on the other end of the table will often think he came out on top when it was Donald that really got what he wanted.

He doesn’t give in easily though. If you want to change his mind you have to make a solid case. This can be done but one has to make perfect sense. Otherwise, he will go full stream ahead with his own ideas. He hates to change his mind but will if the situation warrants it.

The problem people have in dealing with him is that most will not understand what is going on in his mind. Donald rarely will put all his cards on the table. His inner circle and loved ones will see quite a different side of him than the general public or those doing business with him.

He is extremely versatile and intelligent and has great organizational ability. He is great about visualizing a thing on the physical plane and then turning it into a reality.

Notice the beginning and ending strokes on his name. They look like two buildings. He had to go out of his way to get that effect at the end because the P looks nothing like a P. If there was ever a signature of a builder then this is it.

In this one small sample we see three different modes of writing. The first is the regular writing in the note. The second shows up in the word, AMAZING. And the third mode is in his signature. This shows a versatility and adaptability that few people possess. If the situation calls for it he will change on a dime to make things work out as desired, though his inner goals and mindset will change slowly.

He is not as hardnosed as many think and is influenced by others and willing to listen and consider thoughts of others. He is willing to make what he considers to be reasonable compromises to make things work, but he is not a pushover. He always proceeds with the end in view.

So, how would he deal with world leaders like Putin and the Chinese leaders? Some are afraid he would start World War III.

Indeed he has strong passion, but he has the best self control of any of the candidates. He is very measured and puts a lot of thought into the actual actions he takes.

He says he would have a good relationship with Putin and he probably would. He would first present the image that we are not to be messed with, but then in private meetings he would break the ice and find much more common ground than would other lesser thinkers. He would make deals and both sides would come out feeling positive, but Trump would make sure our country got the best advance possible.

To fix the economy we need someone very bright who can see through the illusion and resist the selfish influences of those who would continue the status quo. Trump has the intelligence to be the man for the job.

Ted Cruz

I found numerous samples of Ted’s signature but only one sample of his regular writing. Here it is along with three sample signatures.

Cruz Samples

It is interesting how much Cruz has in common with Trump. There are four that stand out.

(1) The signature is a much different style than the regular writing.

(2) They both write in all capital disconnected letters in their regular writing.

(3) They are both driven and passionate men.

(4) They are both very intelligent.

The most similar trait is that they both write in all printed caps wit disconnected letters.

This reveals a rebel instinct in both of them. Neither is afraid to go against the grain. They do things the way they see as the right way to go. In work or play they are competitive and strive hard to win or it is not much fun. Neither wants to reveal the full hand they may be playing.

As I said the signatures of both men have quite a bit different style than their regular writing. This tells us that both men desire to project an image that may not correspond to their true self in order to achieve certain ends. Trump wants to project an image of a person you don’t want to mess with, but his bark is worse than his bite.

Cruz tries to project the image that he is more of a team player than he is and that he should be looked upon as someone others can lean on to win the good fight. He has more glamour about this than most.

It is a little surprising to learn that Cruz is partially driven by the desire for recognition and a desire to be the center of attention. He shares this characteristic with Obama, but with less intensity. Even so, he loves the limelight more than does Trump. People assume that Trump wants to be the center of attention because he keeps winding up being at that center, but his efforts are more focused on accomplishing his goals rather than drawing attention to himself. On the other hand, attaining center stage is a strong motivating factor with Cruz. Not the only one to be sure, but it is a strong factor.

Both men are very intelligent, but Cruz is more one directional, focused on a limited range of goals. This could work fine to make him an above average president for he would focus strongly on the job and try and limit distractions.

Trump’s intelligence is more versatile, diverse accompanied by great passion. Whereas Cruz would devote 100% of his energy to being president as the job requires, Trump may figure he can do the orthodox job successfully using half of his energy and intelligence and then expand his endeavors into new territory and go where no president has gone before. We would have to wait and see to see where that would be.

Even though Cruz is very independent and likes to do things his own way he is willing to compromise more than the public image of him reveals – as long as his principles are not violated.

Cruz is honest, straightforward and likes to make efficient use of his time. He likes to cut through the red tape and stick to the essentials. He would like to see rules, regulations, taxes etc honed down to what was necessary for the health of the nation.

Cruz is very driven, has a strong sense of purpose. He makes his goals challenging to himself looking into the far future with his planning. He has good self control and desires to improve himself. He places a lot of attention on the material side of things despite being a religious person. He wants this physical earth to be a heaven as well as the hereafter.

Let me add that one thing that handwriting does not reveal is the ideology and belief system that motivates a person. One must examine the words and works of the person to determine that. Some people with a lot of intelligence and talent could make bad decisions based on illusionary beliefs they have picked up. This always needs to be taken into consideration when assessing a leader through his handwriting.

 

Hillary Clinton’s Handwriting Analysis

I analyzed Hillary in 2008. I will include that analysis below but first make an update with some new analysis. I have more samples this time which provides some additional insights. Here is a sample:  Hillary writing

New Insights

Critics may wonder if her perceived flaws would show up in her handwriting. For instance, she obviously lied about the Benghazi attack being caused by a video as evidenced by an email to her daughter at the time that the attacks were from an “Al Queda-like group.”

Overall her honesty level is about average. With her friends and inner circle, when not under pressure, she is likely to be fairly open and honest. She has two flaws that may lead her to be deceptive. First, she has a tendency to take the line of least resistance, to make the easier of two choices, even though the more difficult would work out for he best in the long run. The immediate future is important to her.

The second flaw is her willingness to accommodate or please those important to her or having authority over her. A certain amount of this trait can be a good thing, but too much creates problems. She sometimes shows this characteristic to an excess. To illustrate note this signature:

Hillary Signature

Look at the two L’s in Hillary and the stem on the H in Rodham. Note how they bend much more than typical writing. This shows a bending of the will in an effort to please others.

My guess on the video lie was that it was done in an effort to please or help the president. It is quite possible she was ordered to report the story and didn’t want to let her boss down.

Many think it is odd that she actively helped suppress the Bill Clinton sex scandals even to the point of attacking the female victims and minimizing them. Critics figured she did it to save her own skin so she could eventually run for president herself. That may have been a factor, but the writing reveals that a most likely bigger factor was pressure put on her by Bill to cooperate and a desire to accommodate him. It was also appealing because it seemed to be the best short term solution.

Many wonder why she would have been so careless with her emails. Why would an intelligent woman put herself in such a perilous situation? Some think it is merely because she doesn’t think the rules apply to her. It goes deeper than that.

Having the server in her home was following the line of least resistance for her and a reason for carelessness in sending and receiving classified data is indicated in this sample signature:

Hillary_Signature 3

Notice how letters are blurred out. This is significant because it is different than her regular fairly clear signature in the past. Nixon’s signature went through a similar evolution as he approached Watergate. This change indicates that she is not being as careful about covering her tracks and taking care of details as in the past.

In the past samples her signature I had on hand revealed a normal desire for attention, as the signature is a similar style as the regular writing. But then I came across this signature in her book

Book Signed

Note the size. It is huge indicating a tremendous desire to be the center of attention. It is interesting that this anomaly appears in a book that tells her story. This variance indicates that in normal relations she tries to appear as one of the people but deep within she has a powerful desire to be the ultimate center of attention as president.

I’ve been looking over several samples of her general writing I did not have in the past and see that there are quite a few changes depending on her mood. Normally she is quite controlled, but she goes through mood changes from time to time.

Highlights of my 2008 Analysis

Hillary is fairly intelligent. This must be respected whether one agrees with her or not. She has a very sharp mind, very perceptive and almost psychic in tapping into her gut feelings. Overall her basic intelligence is higher than her husband’s. This doesn’t mean she will be right more than him but that her capacity to use her brain to get what she wants is higher. If she had an affair she would be much less likely to get caught than Bill would be.

She’s very good at thinking on her feet and strategizing. Critics often have said that nothing happens by accident with her but everything is planned. There is probably some truth in this as she is much more capable than average of staging events to create an outcome.

Her writing reveals that one area where she does not hold back on compromise is with her husband. Some think she stays with him for political reasons only, but this is not fully the case. She sees him as a fun-loving guy to be with and goes out of her way to accommodate him. He brings out the free spirit within her and she likes that and this causes her to cover up and forgive his sins as much as political ambition.

She has been much more aware of his infidelities that she has let on and has calculatingly formed a defense time and time again.

She has a healthy emotional intelligence and does not suppress. If she gets angry she will release it and if she is hurt she will work through it.

She loves politics because she is a true believer in her ideology. She actually has lower self-confidence and esteem than average and doesn’t have as much faith in herself as appears.

She overcomes this self-image problem with dogged determination, self-control and a calculating mind.

As far as revealing her thoughts goes she is all over the map. With some people she will be very open and candid and they will feel special because she is extremely open. With others she will hold back and reveal little. With some groups (probably Republicans) she will be very secretive as well as deceptive.

She has a lot of male energy and if I did not know who had written the sample I see I could not tell if she were male or female.

She is careful about choosing her close friends.

She has many things she wants to accomplish but has difficulty in creating the steps to accomplishment the follow through even though her desire to accomplish is great.

She is sensitive to criticism.

She likes to make up her own mind and doesn’t like people making decisions for her. Once she makes a definite decision she holds to it strongly and proceeds with determination.

The bottom line is this. If she has a practical belief system she can accomplish much good, but if she has illusionary beliefs then she can take many people with her along an undesirable path.

You can’t tell belief systems from handwriting alone, but it can help in making an educated guess. From her public record we can get a good idea of her belief system and the handwriting can give us indications of where it may lead.

Before I analyzed her handwriting I assumed she was in politics for the glamour as are most politicians. There is much less glamour than I expected and much more calculation. I would guess that she reached certain conclusions when she was young and decided that was what was needed by the world and she was going to do her darndest to act as an agent of change. People who give her too much adoration probably bore her, though she wouldn’t publicly acknowledge this.

We know she has a very socialistic leanings and supports the basic democratic ideals. Her handwriting reveals that this is not because of strong emotional empathy as she is very emotionally reserved and holds them in check in many cases. Her belief system is an intellectually calculated one and probably inspired by a number of authors and teachers in her past.

The bright spark is that she is capable of changing her mind and following a practical solution.

If elected she would try and please her supporters while implementing her ideas, but would back off when dead ends are reached.

She would probably get on well with most heads of state and leaders but if someone seems to be opposed to her she is likely to act as they do not exist.

She is an interesting combination of being aggressive yet lacking confidence so it is difficult to predict what she would do in a crisis. She may overreact to prove herself on one occasion and be overly cautious in another.

 

Bernie Sanders

Here is a sample of his writing plus a full signature.

Bernie Letter Bernie Signature

Bernie’s strong emotional sensitivity catches my eye first. The previous three candidates seek to control their emotions with their minds. They are all three intense and passionate, but also calculating about the steps they take. Not so much with Bernie. His direction is governed more by his emotions than any calculating mind.

He is sensitive and caring and has empathy for the pain and distress of others. When we add to this the fact that his mind dwells a lot in the abstract ideological side of life with his mind consistently expanding on ideas he likes – accompanied by a desire to share and give – it is no surprise that he is a socialist.

He is evidently drawn to this belief because he sees it as a vehicle to relieve humanity from the pain, distress and suffering they have. Because he has good emotional intelligence and appeals to emotional people with his speech he has an ability to attract many not so interested in the three other major candidates who are more mental.

His intentions are good and he wants to help people, but decisions on how to go about it are governed by his feelings and strong idealistic view of how the world should be. Unfortunately, he has not thought through how he will accomplish is vision.

And vision is a key word here as he is driven more by his ideals and vision than he is in accomplishing any personal gain. A huge part of him would rather not run for president because of personal insecurities, but he pushed himself forward because in his mind it was the right thing to do for the greater good.

With Bernie what you see is what you get. He has no interest in projecting any image in public that is any different than in private, though he is secretive and most are not aware of all his thinking. His emotional connection is part of the reason he has been as successful as he has.

There are several drawbacks to him accomplishing his goals as president.

(1) He does not think things through to their logical conclusion, but just feels that if he does the right thing (in his eyes) that things will work out.

(2) He doesn’t always finish what he starts – if too many problems get in the way he will stop and do something different leaving the job undone.

(3) He is more insecure than he lets on.

(4) He can be fooled by adversaries more than the other three candidates.

(5) He bottles up emotion and this can be dangerous. He is normally warm and friendly but if too much internal pressure mounts he is likely to make a quick retaliatory decision or outburst on impulse that he would regret.

(6) He is very secretive. There are a lot of things in his past he does not want to discuss and if he were president he would not share with us all of his plans.

(7) He is not much in to making deals or compromising.

His intelligence is a little above average, but his emotional appeal is quite a bit above average. He is quick on his feet though and never lacks for something to say.

We’ve covered the major candidates. Now I’ll go over a few points on three others who have an outside chance.

 

 

Michael Bloomberg

Here are a couple samples of his writing.

Bloomberg Final

The first question one might ask is how is it that the guy made about $40 billion?

Take a look at his Y for a huge clue. Notice how far down into the lower zone it extends. The depth of the lower zone shows the amount of attention one places on the material side of life and his focus there is pretty intense. Another clue is found in two huge hooks. The most prominent is found in the Y on the bottom signature and a second is the beginning stroke on the M in the top signature. These huge hooks show a powerful desire to acquire that which he desires (and he has strong material desires) and even more powerful impulse to keep the gains which he has achieved. This focus plus considerable influence though charm and emotional appeal – plus an aggressive drive for what he wants gives us some insight into his success. I would guess that he has also had considerable good luck, as many others with similar traits are not billionaires.

The strange thing about one with such a material focus is that his mind also stretches into the philosophical, spiritual abstract areas of life. In this way and emotionally he has a lot in common with Bernie Sanders. The two would find each other interesting when the conversation is centered on political philosophy, but Bloomberg would lose Bernie when he started talking finance or capitalism.

Bloomberg is more honest with his words than most politicians, but is careful about revealing his feelings. He doesn’t like conflict and tries to get along with fellow workers by being more cheerful than he feels at times.

He loves variety and change. That is one reason he wants to be president – it would be an interesting change for him, though he would complain about the isolation of the office if elected.

Marco Rubio

Marco Final

The thing that first catches my attention in Marco’s writing is his unusual treatment of the latter part of his name – Marco. In the first sample the first two letters are legible and the latter two are just a large smudge. In the second sample all but the M is represented by a small smudge. In the third he just writes Ma and leaves the last two letters out completely. Finally, we note that the capital letters are much larger than the lower case. Putting this all together it appears that there is a part of his life he would like to blot out from existence, but another part that he wants to draw attention to. It would seem that there is a part of himself he just wants to leave behind and concentrate on who and where he is now. There appears to be some emotional pain in his past he wants to forget.

He likes the limelight he has achieved and getting recognition for his strengths is one of the things that motivates him. A strong sense of responsibility is another motivator. He sees what he thinks is the right direction and feels responsible to do something about it.

He oscillates from time to time between being very conservative to fairly liberal. Sometimes he takes a stand and no ne can change his mind and other times he relaxes and goes with he flow.

He is charming, likeable and likes to concentrate on essentials. He tries to take a mental approach, rather than emotional to situations that require a decision.

Ben Carson

Ben Carson

You wouldn’t think that Carson has a stronger desire to be center stage than does Trump. He shares this with the other Republican candidates analyzed here.

What has garnered his success though is that is a plodder, a team player and has good determination and organizational skills. His journey through life has been a step-by-step process, ever moving onward to greener pastures and more recognition.

He is a dreamer and is anchored enough to the real world to make some of his dreams come true. He focuses a lot of attention of the spiritual, philosophical side of life.

He doesn’t like a lot of friction and is hesitant to sharply criticize. He has a secretive side and doesn’t want to reveal all his thoughts.

He has the intelligence and stability to make a competent president.

I could write much more about all the above candidates, but this should suffice to give a few useful highlights.

Keys Writings, Part 2

This entry is part 4 of 34 in the series 2011C

Belief – Faith
July 1, 2011

Ruth: So we should always question our soul and intuition? Isn’t the Spirit within the true voice anyway? Entering the Kingdom is entering the spiritual consciousness, rather than the lower consciousness.

JJ The trouble is that we have two voices within. The first is a voice created by the emotional/astral self. This was that which was called in the Bible “the heart which is deceitful above all things.” This does not represent the true heart energies but is the closest thing to it until the energy of spiritual love is recognized.

Many people seek the inner voice for lifetimes and the highest they achieve is the astral voice that always leads them to upside down truths and keeps them in illusion.

The seeker must question all things, including the astral inner voice before he can find the sure voice of the soul.

Then when he first discovers the true voice he will have difficulty in accepting it as real at first and will question its reality. It is only after the true voice proves itself a number of times that the seeker finally accepts it as reliable and begins to trust it. After he has proven its reliability and trusts it the power of the voice is increased until it becomes strong enough that there is no question that the seeker is hearing the true voice when it comes.

A sure reliance on the true voice will take a number of lifetimes and for the seeker who has mastered it in the past – he will still have to remaster it in the current life – though it could be much quicker because he doesn’t have to start from scratch.

Ruth How does one first prove or test that Jesus will raise another person from the dead, until the actual deed has taken place?

JJ Martha had already seen Jesus perform a lot of miracles and this increased her faith. To her credit the inner voice confirmed that Jesus could raise Lazarus and she accepted this.

Ruth quoting me: “He who masters intuition knows, and knows that he knows, and knows why he knows.”

JJ But before this happens the seeker will mistake the astral voice many times for the true voice. After all, he has nothing to compare the astral voice to until he hears and recognizes the true voice.

Ruth: Oh now I get it. So when God told Joe Smith to go west and save himself, he said no because he was too skeptical of that inner voice and had to test it, so he went and got killed instead?

JJ He wasn’t skeptical of the inner voice. He knew he should have followed it but the pressure from his wife, brother and others just got the best of him and he ignored the voice to his peril.

Ruth: For the rest of my life and the next and next one, I am supposed to question all of JJ’s teachings, all of Jesus teachings and all of the DK teachings, just in case they are all wrong?

Interesting.

JJ It doesn’t matter if God himself is speaking question anything that doesn’t make sense and seek understanding until you can make sense of a thing and have it register positive with your soul. I question DK regularly and this helps me see his teachings from a wider angle.

Ruth Glad Mary and Martha and all those other women did not question their soul voice when it came to Jesus depending on their faith and belief in those healings.

JJ But they did question it many times previously until they learned to recognize the difference between the true voice and the astral.

Ruth If I was to continuously question that which I know is true, then I will never truly believe in myself or my ability to know truth via soul.

JJ Use the things you are sure is true as a foundation, but ever so often one must reexamine himself and question all things. I do this with myself. If I didn’t do this I would probably still be a regular church member as when I was younger I was very sure that I was on the path of highest knowledge, but because I was open to all things I discovered I was wrong and reset my compass.

However, the true principles that were confirmed by my soul when I was younger are still true today. I just needed a path correction and needed the realization that the soul only gives you the portion of a picture that you can handle at the time.

Trump Quote
July 4, 2011

Here’s a great quote from Donald Trump that Sterling dug up:

Let me get this straight . . . … We’re going to be “gifted” with a health care Plan we are forced to purchase and Fined if we don’t, Which purportedly covers at least Ten million more people, Without adding a single new doctor, But provides for 16,000 new IRS agents, Written by a committee whose chairman Says he doesn’t understand it, Passed by a Congress that didn’t read it but Exempted themselves from it, And signed by a President who smokes, With funding administered by a treasury chief who Didn’t pay his taxes, For which we’ll be taxed for four years before any Benefits take effect, By a government which has Already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, All to be overseen by a surgeon general Who is obese, And financed by a country that’s broke!!!!!

‘What the hell could Possibly go wrong?’

Re: PI is wrong?
July 6, 2011

Here was a readers comments in PI which I thought was interesting:

What’s the big deal? We cannot handle doubling a constant? Besides, while some formulas are simpler, others are more complex. Circumference becomes Tau x R instead of 2 x Pi x R, but at the same time Tau x D / 2 instead of Pi x D. Area of the circle is now Tau x R^2/2 instead of a simpler Pi x R^2. I think what this “innovation” shows is that we have gotten so bad at math that we are not able to perform trivial algebraic and arithmetic transformations intuitively. But if calling 2xPi Tau saves space in some formulas, why not use it? At the same time, we still need Pi to keep others simple.

Re: From Self Consciousness to Initiation
July 6, 2011

Glad you like that series. I got distracted and never returned to finish that book. I still plan on doing so one day not too far away now. When finished it may capture some attention.

I liked it better when we could just click on the next chapter or go to an index of all these works. > > I know your not very busy these days so I thought I would give you something to do for a change… ;D LOL! > > For those of you who have not read it or its been a long time here you go… > > Blayne > > http://www.freeread.com/archives/1633.html > http://www.freeread.com/archives/1635.html > http://www.freeread.com/archives/1637.html > http://www.freeread.com/archives/1642.html > http://www.freeread.com/archives/1645.html > http://www.freeread.com/archives/1648.html > http://www.freeread.com/archives/1650.html > http://www.freeread.com/archives/1654.html > http://www.freeread.com/archives/1658.html > http://www.freeread.com/archives/1665.html

What lives fuse to enter the kingdom?
July 7, 2011

JJ [archives]: > “… each time a new kingdom is entered lives are fused to create a greater life.” – http://freeread.com/archives/1633.html

Dan: So, when a human “graduates” to the god kingdom, what lives fuse?

JJ First remember that higher correspondences are loosely like the lower but are also different. The correspondences are never exact and the higher must be discern intuitively. Seeking an exact correspondence will never reveal the full truth for the life of God is always applying new intelligence on each new level.

We are all fragments of a greater whole. When a successful human molecule is created the various entities create stations for the atomic units but these may not be your true fragmented parts. As you enter the next kingdom your soul searches for your true parts that you will fuse with. It may be some time before this happens as other parts of yourself may not yet have entered the fifth kingdom but are regular humans not yet aware of you.

The Five Tibetans

Dan: So for those of us not at the gathering, what are the benefits of spinning JJ? And why is one direction (clockwise, if you laid a clock face-up on the ground) better than the other?

JJ I got an email from a woman’s only website that was supposed to contain a weight loss secret connected to spinning. I guess with a handle like “JJ” they didn’t know I was a guy. I decided to check it out. The site is at: http://www.weightlossguideforwomen.com

The author says she has received many positive comments of improvements in health from people who practice spinning clockwise, but if they spin the other way nothing much happens.

I found the book you linked to enlightening, however, because it explains the principle of activating the spinning energy centers in the body with a number of exercises. I plan on diligently applying these and monitoring the results.

Spinning (was Re: The Five Tibetans

Ruthangel I’m wondering if clockwise or counter clockwise had anything to do with the hemisphere???

JJ The body needs to spin clockwise not because of anything esoteric but because the energy centers it stimulates spin that direction. The clockwise spinning stimulates the spin of the centers in their natural direction and this increases energy flow to the whole body. That is the teaching anyway.

It is true that the natural spin of our various centers is linked to higher things but that is another subject.

I’d recommend reading the booklet Larry and Dan referenced.

Diet Sodas
July 11, 2011

I want to thank all those who came to the gathering. It was one more special occasion. A lot of the attraction for the group is just meeting each other and mingling.

The theme for the gathering was health and we covered a lot of good material but there were several things that I forgot to mention. One very important one was diet sodas and artificial sweeteners.

From the time I first tasted artificial sweetener I knew that they are not good for you. It tastes like nothing natural on earth – like it is manufactured from some chemical waste dump.

What really amazed me is how many people used them and seemed to actually like them. The only explanation I can think of is you acquire a taste after you use them for a while. As for me this was not something I want to acquire a taste for but even so a couple times a year I may drink something with artificial sweeteners as it is in so many things that it is difficult to avoid completely.

It is difficult to tell what has artificial sweeteners from the label as there are so many variations of them with numerous names. I read that they are sometimes added to natural sweeteners and not listed in the ingredients. Sometimes the only way you can tell is from the taste.

Below is the results of several studies showing some of the disadvantages. It is interesting that people use them to save calories, but those who drink diet sodas gain more weight than those who use regular sugar drinks.

I think the problems it causes are much greater than revealed by any study so far. Michael J. Fox was famous for endorsing Diet Pepsi and look at he poor guy now. I wouldn’t be surprised if the diet drinks weren’t largely responsible for his condition.

Anyway – here’s some thought provoking data.

The Studies

People who drink diet soft drinks don’t lose weight. In fact, they gain weight, a new study shows.

The findings come from eight years of data collected by Sharon P. Fowler, MPH, and colleagues at the University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio. Fowler reported the data at the annual meeting of the American Diabetes Association in San Diego.

“What didn’t surprise us was that total soft drink use was linked to overweight and obesity,” Fowler tells WebMD. “What was surprising was when we looked at people only drinking diet soft drinks, their risk of obesity was even higher.”

In fact, when the researchers took a closer look at their data, they found that nearly all the obesity risk from soft drinks came from diet sodas.

“There was a 41% increase in risk of being overweight for every can or bottle of diet soft drink a person consumes each day,” Fowler says. More Diet Drinks, More Weight Gain

Fowler’s team looked at seven to eight years of data on 1,550 Mexican-American and non-Hispanic white Americans aged 25 to 64. Of the 622 study participants who were of normal weight at the beginning of the study, about a third became overweight or obese.

For regular soft-drink drinkers, the risk of becoming overweight or obese was:

26% for up to 1/2 can each day 30.4% for 1/2 to one can each day 32.8% for 1 to 2 cans each day 47.2% for more than 2 cans each day.

For diet soft-drink drinkers, the risk of becoming overweight or obese was:

36.5% for up to 1/2 can each day 37.5% for 1/2 to one can each day 54.5% for 1 to 2 cans each day 57.1% for more than 2 cans each day.

For each can of diet soft drink consumed each day, a person’s risk of obesity went up 41% http://www.webmd.com/diet/news/20050613/drink-more-diet-soda-gain-more-weight

New research that links diet soda consumption with an increased risk of heart attack and stroke has doctors urging caution about the controversial and preliminary results. According to a study of more than 2,500 people presented today as a poster at the American Stroke Association International Stroke Conference in Los Angeles, people who drank diet soda daily had a 61 percent increased risk of cardiovascular events compared to those who drank no soda, even when accounting for smoking, physical activity, alcohol consumption and calories consumed per day. “This study suggests that diet soda is not an optimal substitute for sugar-sweetened beverages, and may be associated with a greater risk of stroke,” Hannah Gardener of the University of Miami and her colleagues reported at the conference. http://abcnews.go.com/Health/HeartHealth/diet-soda-linked-heart-attack-stroke-ri\ sk/story?id=12868269

Watch your kidneys, folks.

Researchers analyzing the health habits of thousands of nurses found that women who drank two or more diet sodas daily had a two-fold increase in the risk of a significantly faster drop in their kidneys’ ability to filter blood compared with those who drank one or none.

Another analysis by the same pair of Harvard researchers found that eating a lot of salt also hurt kidney’s filtering power over time.

“While more study is needed, our research suggests that higher sodium and artificially sweetened beverages are associated with a greater rate of decline in kidney function,” Dr. Julie Lin, a kidney specialist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, said in a statement. http://www.npr.org/blogs/health/2009/11/diet_sodas_may_hurt_kidneys.html

Does Obama Exist?

I figured someone must have checked this out and there would be some evidence of his past, but considering the meager evidence of his existence in the past I thought “Does Obama Exist?” was a funny question to ask.

JJ I have found all these fact check places to be suspect and partisan. They all seem to originate from the left and attempt to make the right wing seem like the crazy ones as if the left is where reason resides.

Sex & the Throat Center
July 15, 2011

There were questions a while back regarding sex and the throat center. Here are a few interesting things from the Bailey writings on the subject:

This point has been enlarged upon because so many people, and particularly men, find that the animal nature requires attention when they begin to meditate. They discover within themselves uncontrolled desires, plus physiological effects which cause them acute trouble and discouragement. A person may have a high aspiration and a strong urge towards spiritual living and yet have aspects of his nature still uncontrolled. The energy that pours in during meditation pours down through the mechanism and stimulates the entire sex apparatus. The weak point is always discovered and stimulated. The cure for this situation can be summed up in the words: control of the thought life and transmutation. An intense mental preoccupation and interest should be cultivated in other directions than the line of least resistance sex. There should be an endeavor at all times to keep the energy contacted in the head and to permit it to work out through creative activity of some kind. The eastern teaching tells us that energy, usually directed to the functioning of the sex life, has to be raised and carried to the head and throat, particularly the latter, as it is, we are told, the centre of creative work. To put it in western terms, this means that we learn to transmute the energy utilized in the procreative process or in sex thoughts and use it in the work of creative writing, in artistic endeavor, or in some expression of group activity. The tendency in modern times to find the one-pointed thinker and purely mental type evading marriage and as he frequently does leading a purely celibate life, may be a demonstration of the truth of the eastern position. It is causing a good deal of concern among those who study our falling birth rate. Transmutation is not surely the death of an activity or a cessation of functioning on any level of consciousness for the sake of a higher. It is the right utilization of the various aspects of energy wherever the Self feels they should be used for the furthering of the ends of evolution, and the helping of the Plan. The mind, illumined by the soul, should be the controlling factor, and when we think straight, live straight, and raise all thoughts and energies into the “Heavenly places” we shall solve our problems through the development of a spiritual normality which is greatly needed at this time, particularly among aspirants and esoteric students. From Intellect to Intuition, Pages 259-261

The first indications of glamour arose when the disciples and the aspirants of the Lemurian world (whose problem was the right comprehension, correct functioning and control of the physical body) began to differentiate between themselves, as self-conscious beings, and physical and vital forces. That immediately set up a tremendous activity in the throat centre which is the higher aspect of the sacral centre (the sex centre) and thus led to the initial glamour and to the first definite recognition and consideration of the sex impulse, of sex attraction, and for the initiate of that period of the necessary sex transmutation. This went hand in hand with the earliest Yoga, or the cult of the physical body with the objective of its control by the soul, and the consequent merging of the conscious and the subconscious. Glamour Page 107

Rule 11.

Let the disciple transfer the fire from the lower triangle to the higher, and preserve that which is created through the fire of the midway point.

This means, literally, the control by the initiate of the sex impulse, as usually understood, and the transference of the fire which now normally vitalises the generative organs to the throat centre, thus leading to creation upon the mental plane through the agency of mind. That which is to be created must then be nourished and sustained by the love energy of nature issuing from the heart centre. Initiation, Human & Solar, Page 204

Apart from a consideration of this along the lines of the conservation of energy, there is another angle from which the aspirant approaches the problem and that is the transmutation of the vital principle (as manifested through the physical organism) into the dynamic demonstration of it as manifested through the organ of sound, or creation, through the word, the work of the true magician. There is as all students of occultism know, a close connection between the organs of generation and the third major centre, the throat centre. This is apparent physiologically in the change of voice seen during the adolescent period. Through the true conservation of energy and abstention from incontinence, the yogi becomes a creator on the mental plane through the use of the word and of sounds, and the energy which can be dissipated through the activity of the lower centre is concentrated and transmuted into the great creative work of the magician. This is done through continence, pure living and clean thinking, and not through any perversions of occult truth such as sex magic and the enormities of the sex perversions of various so-called occult schools. The latter are on the black path and do not lead to the portal of initiation. Light of the Soul, Page 200

The energy of the sacral centre which feeds the generative organs is in due course of time transferred into the throat centre. The creative process is then carried on by thought, sound and the spoken Word. Hunger and thirst are the two aspects of desire, the one, hunger, being positive, masculine and grasping; the other, thirst, being negative, feminine and receptive. Those two words are but symbols of the two great impulses underlying the sex impulse. When these impulses are dominated and controlled, then the energy of the centre lying behind the organs concerned, can be carried upward to the throat, and hunger and thirst are arrested in the esoteric sense. It should be borne in mind here that these two words are the physical plane analogies to the great pairs of opposites which the yogi has to balance and which he does balance when the solar plexus is performing its highest function. Light of the Soul, Page 312

First, the energies below the diaphragm have to be lifted up and blended with those above the diaphragm. With the process and rules for so doing we cannot here deal, except in one case, the raising of the sacral energy to the throat centre, or the transmutation of the process of physical reproduction and of physical creation into that of the creativeness of the artist in some field of creative expression. Through the union of the energies of these two centres we shall come to that stage in our development wherein we shall produce the children of our skill and minds. Where, in other words, there is a true union of the higher and the lower energies, you will have the emergence of beauty in form, the enshrining of some aspect of truth in appropriate expression, and thus the enriching of the world. Where there is this synthesis, the true creative artist begins to function. The throat, the organ of the Word, expresses the life and manifests the glory and the reality behind. Such is the symbolism lying behind the teaching of the fusion of the lower energies with the higher, and of this, physical plane sex is a symbol. Mankind today is rapidly becoming more creative, for the transfusion of the energies is going on under the new impulses. As we develop the sense of purity in man, as the growth of the sense of responsibility is fostered, and as his love of beauty, of colour and of ideas proceeds, we shall have a rapid increase in the raising of the lower into union with the higher, and thereby the beautifying of the Temple of the Lord will be tremendously accelerated.
