Traveling the Spiritual Path in a Material World

Once you get past the renunciation of marriage and material things, being a monk or nun is easy. You just meditate, pray, study and serve, and trust that somehow your needs to survive will somehow be met.

It’s not quite that cut and dried for those who travel the path while still being part of the regular world, with things like career, family, bills, health and possessions to look after for yourself. The spiritual rules are the same, but the demands and distractions of daily like make it much more complicated.

As you know, much of living is learning to keep all the balls up in the air that are required to have the kind of life you want. But consciously traveling the spiritual path brings several more to juggle which often can seemingly take precedence over the need to survive.

For instance, surrendering one’s will to the Divine as expressed by spirit through your inner voice can put you in conflict between where it leads and what you think you need to do to keep the lights on and a roof over your head.

This conflict is not readily resolved, and in fact may not be resolvable at all. For spirit often leads us into situations of catalyst to bring experiences needed by our souls. And the attendant concerns over one’s unmet outer affairs can result in all sorts of issues to work through, like self-judgment, struggle and lack, not to mention outright failure and frustration.

But these are just bumps in the road for the awakening soul. For “let go and let God” becomes more than an optimistic mantra; it often is the only way to move through such situations without driving yourself crazy in the process.

That’s why learning to sense and go with the flow of your life is so important. It doesn’t do much good to exhaust yourself fighting to swim upstream, and then die after an unhappy and unfulfilling life.

So if you’ve taken the spiritual path, know that it probably won’t be a bed of roses. But the challenges it brings will force you to find a deeper peace and joy for just being alive, among other benefits.

Be patient with yourself, and with God. It isn’t that your prayers are going unanswered. It’s just that you’ve chosen a path to grow closer to source, and a lot of inner restructuring may be required to get there. Your life will show you the way and provide the experiences that will bring you what you came into this life to get.

However your journey unfolds, know that it is by your consciousness choice that you are on it. But it’s not set in stone. You may make another choice in another moment if you want or need to.

But like my mother always said, trust that somehow things will work out. They usually do, despite how bleak things may seem at times. I do, and hope you do, too.

God bless you indeed. Go with love.

Plastic in Chicken Eggs and Rubber Yolks?

Things are getting curiouser and curiouser out there. Just when you think you’ve seen it all (meaning all the ways they’re trying to do you harm and force you into going along with their global agenda), now some are suggesting that plastics and rubber are being introduced into chicken eggs.

Here’s a video recently posted by SGAnon on Rumble (yeah, I know — conspiracy central), that you may want to watch. It’s short, only a couple of minutes.

Storm Clouds are Gathering to Threaten Us on Many Fronts

Where’s a soul to find peace these days? Everywhere we turn storm clouds are gathering, and with them bringing threats on many fronts with ominous implications to our lives.

Hunter Biden’s laptop and his father’s private possession of classified documents raises the specter that our leaders don’t serve the people. Instead, it suggests a persuasive corruption and homage to money and power that has settled into all aspects of government and the rest of society.

Culture wars are all around, as foundations like family, church and livelihood are under attack from the wokist ideology that is pitting the people against each other and imposing once-marginalized ideas and lifestyles over all aspects of society.

Free speech is no longer free, with a partnership between progressive partisans, government officials and Big Tech imposing their propaganda narratives and censoring all dissent.

Free will is nearly as restrained, with lockdowns and mandates imposed by those who think they know best how we all should live out lives.

Food supplies are poisoned by toxins, plastics, heavy metals, and sterilizing agents. And soon, MRNA vaccines and fertilizers will put graphene oxide into everything we consume.

War is underway in Europe, with escalations expected as arms flood into the conflict. China wants Taiwan by hook or by crook, and many think they’ll take it by force — setting off another war.

Chemtrails spray who knows what into the air. Pollutants and plastics flood our seas. Politicians and WEF power brokers are pushing draconian measures to restrict energy supplies and impair industry under the guise of concern for climate changes, all to impose their control agenda upon the world.

The financial system is breaking down, too, as fiat money is shown to be a fraud the ultra-wealthy perpetrate on the rest of us. And some speak openly about the rich owning the world and the people nothing, promising we’ll be happy with whatever crumbs they drop for us to fight over.

Oh, it is a grand time to be alive. But for those who are awakening to it all, it doesn’t feel so grand. Instead, they feel under attack, assaulted from all sides and unsure which way to turn to fight back, much less how.

Mankind is at a turning point, and our individual abilities to influence which way it goes are minimal at best. Sure, we can band together to fight back here and there, but the systems and institutions of our civilization have been captured by the forces wagng the assault.

Going back to the way things were isn’t possible. But where do we’re go from here?

Well, we can go along to get along. That’s certainly where most are headed. But the future they’re moving torward doesn’t look so bright, particularly for those who believe in the sovereignty of every soul.

I see no hope of compromise or moderating their plans. They’re too entrenched in their ways, and the captured media are keeping the sheep fast asleep while they impose their will on the world ahead.

Rather, I only see conflict and uncertainty, with those who don’t breaking away from the pack to create parallel networks, institutions and perhaps even enclaves of their own societies so they can go their own ways.

Peace in the world is and will continue to be hard to find. So the only peace we’ll get has to be inside, detaching from the cares and concerns of a turbulent world and focusing on the little joys we find in our own lives.

From there, we can expand our peace and joy and try to show it so others will want the same. But most will be too blinded to see or even care.

The great clash will sweep us all away if we let it. Maybe solutions will appear as we resist the onslaught. But for now, we must prepare ourselves and steel our wills to face the challenges at hand.

If you must fight, give it your all. But try to first find peace in your time, here and now.

It’s the only way to avoid carrying the seeds of today’s problems into the future we hope to create.

Godspeed, and God bless you indeed. Go with love.

The Coup We Never Knew – Victor Davis Hanson

One of my favorite free thinkers these days is Victor Davis Hanson. He just tends to see things another way. Here’s a recent article of his on The Coup We Never Knew.

The Coup We Never Knew › American Greatness

What happened to the U.S. border? Where did it go? Who erased it? Why and how did 5 million people enter our country illegally? Did Congress secretly repeal our immigration laws? Did Joe Biden issue an executive order allowing foreign nationals to walk across the border and reside in the United States as they pleased?

American Greatness

Hanson raises many questions that need answering. But of course, our government won’t tell us. And if they did, they’d lie.

You know the government isn’t serving we the people very well. But nothing’s going to change until we do. And that means making our stand for doing right by us, instead of the wealthy and powerful and the politicians and bureaucrats who do their bidding.

Of course, you could just sit there and let it wash over you. But maybe, just maybe, that inner voice is whispering in your ear that the time for just sitting there and taking it is over.


Frustration of Purpose on the Spiritual Path

Frustration of purpose is one of those things we lawyers learned about in law school. It refers to a legal defense for the non-performance of a contract in an action for remedies studying from is breach.

The same principle can apply just as really to our journey through life and intentions for what we try to do along the way. It offers the soul a built-in excuse for it’s failure to manifest it’s intentions or to create what we think it wants to experience.

Now, such a perspective itself is a paradox. On the one hand, the soul wants to do or accomplish something and directs the ego to pour all it’s energy and attention into accomplishing it On the other, it creates circumstances that thwart its purported intent, setting the ego up for failure, and leaving it to suffer all the unpleasant ramifications it brings.

Most of the time we are only able to glimpse the lesson behind such a life plan, but even then it doesn’t make the failure much easier to bear. Instead, it brings us face-to-face with attributes we thought we left behind, like self-judgment and questions of self-worth.

So following the inspirations and guidance of your inner voice doesn’t automatically bring success wherever it leads. It only brings experiences needed by the soul, whatever those may be.

Often the ego is left wanting, shaking it’s head at following such guidance yet still continuing to do so, even though it usually means just beating its head against an invisible wall it can never break through.

Still, catalysts being catalysts, we’re left to make the best of a bad situation, regardless whether it steals our peace, joy or prosperity along the way

Maybe the answer is to quit and let it all go. Maybe it’s to keep going in hopes the soul has had enough of the impasse and opens the door to some measure of later success.

I can’t tell you how to meet this challenge, for there is no right answer. There is only experience.

But that’s why we’re here anyway, whether we understand or not. They say ignorance is bliss, but to those caught in the vindaloop, that bliss can be hard to find.

If this happens to you, just do your best. Make whatever choices feel right to you when you face them. And until then, try to be at peace despite frustration of the purpose you seek to fulfill.

God bless you indeed.

How to Raise Your Vibrations per Nikola Tesla

We’re working to manifest a new world of 4th density consciousness. We each have to do our parts.

Whether you’re on a mission to make some difference or not, the most important thing you can do is raise your vibrations to match the bright and uplifting future you want.

Don’t know how? Focus on the basics. Here’s a quick guide.

Credit, however,, goes not to Tesla but to the extensive work of Abraham as channeled through Esther and Jerry Hicks on the vibratory law of attraction.

Now, practice it. Try to match the vibration of what you want our world to be. Peace and joy are where I focus, but you do you.


Ascending to 4th Density Consciousness in a 3D World

Those of us who are awakening are taking on an enormous task. Not only do we have to face the tremendous changes going on in us that have estranged us from the lives we once knew. We also have to deal with a 3D world hell-bent on its own destruction that wants to take us down with it. But such are the challenges facing those who are consciously ascending into 4th density consciousness.

Contrary to what many believe, there is (and will be) no magical shift from 3D into a new 5th dimension (dimensions referring to a reality with certain features of space and time). Rather, think of it as an innate reaction to an increasing bombardment of light that transmutes how we think and see the world, as well as certain aspects of our physical bodies that better respond to the higher frequencies that come with them. So rather than moving into a new dimensional space, what is in actuality occurring is an upliftment in our capacity to love and be loved through greater inflow of light. In short, as the density of light that flows into us increases, so grows our ability to embody our highest attributes and set aside our lowest. This state of being is described as 4th density consciousness.

Since there as of yet is no sudden shift to uplift the entire world at once, it must happen one heart and mind at a time. But those who expand still find themselves living in a 3D world that plays by 3D rules and brings down upon them all the horrible things like suffering and conflict that 3D is so well-known for.

Those whose consciousness is opening to these higher energies are said to be in 4D, yet they’re still here and subject to the same harms, fears and uncertainties that their slumbering brethren do.

In a sense, they have a foot in both worlds, unable to go forward any faster, and unable or at least unwilling to go back to the old ways of thought and action.

It is a disconcerting time. There are no rules or books and few teachers to guide them. Yet here they are, stumbling around in the dark while fighting against a world that wants them to stay here, even as they search desperately for others to come along with them, often to no avail.

Alone. Afraid. Cut off from all they’ve known and often under attack from all sides, these brave souls are the vanguard who must not only figure it out for themselves, but leave breadcrumbs so others can follow.

Some of us, though, have taken on an even bigger challenge — suffering the onslaughts of that 3D world while meeting its darkest aspects head-on in order to create a more habitable environment in which to live. These awakening servers are still few and far between, but can be seen by those who look. Find then. Support them. Maybe even join them if inspiration calls.

Just don’t negate them or block their way, for they do it for you and the rest of humanity. Their efforts lift the energies of us all and enable the collective consciousness to slowly rise so the increasing light can be felt by all. And as it does, a new and better tomorrow will unfold here on earth.

Whether you are among them or not doesn’t matter. What does is that you do your best to walk your talk and embody the best you know inside. Be the love that you are, and encourage your ego to step aside so your soul can shine through.

The 3D problems of your life may not go away quickly, if at all. You may even attract more troubles as your ability to perform in their world diminishes with your turn to the light. But your ability to weather the storm and roll with the punches will increase, as will your ability to manifest by intention a better tomorrow for yourself, and hopefully others.

So stay the course. Be strong in the face of adversity. Stand for the light and what you know is right. For you are working for justice for every soul, so that one day all may know heaven inside, if not also here on earth.

God bless you indeed.

Agorism, Volunteerism and #TheGreaterReset

Want a better world? Maybe the way isn’t to put your energy into a system that isn’t serving us very well. Instead, explore creating parallel networks through agorism, volunteerism and #TheGreaterReset.

They’re in the middle of conference now with a lot of engaging speakers, including Kathryn Austin Fitts on building wealth in a new economy.

Here’s a link where you can watch it live:

It really does offer a better way. You may want to check it out.

While you’re at it, also check out this website of one of its organizers, Derrick Broze.

It offers a free download of his book How To Opt-Out of the Technocratic State by Derrick Broze. For those who don’t like to read on a digital device, you can buy a print copy there as well.

The new earth won’t build itself. We each have to do our parts. What’s yours? Maybe some of these ideas can help you get started.


What Does Ascension Have to Do With Standing Against the Storm?

My readers know that I have encouraged them to “stand,” Why is that? And what does standing against the Storm have to do with their Ascension, or that of humanity, into 4th Density consciousness?

First some background. Ascension is all about expanding consciousness to begin knowing what more you are than what you know yourself to be. That knowing of Self leads to the release of certain beliefs and perceptions that lock you into a perspective that this 3D reality is all there is, and that you are the confusing mishmash of thoughts, emotions and actions that conducts your affairs in this world.

The Storm, on the other hand, is that onslaught of synchronistic events now assaulting our world — and possibly your life — that is forcing you to confront how you see and relate to the world around you. It is a series of events that, taken together, act much like a hurricane that requires you to prepare to meet the force of its winds and rains, shuttering your windows and then riding out the storm, hoping and praying it doesn’t blow you away with it.

It need not be as sinister as the theft of your freedoms or attempt to manipulate humanity’s future like is happening right now at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos. It can be something as common as a personal or business relationship gone sour in which you were sorely wronged that threatens to wreak havoc on your life and affairs.

What’s it all about?

What is important about all of this is that you must know and stand for yourself and what you believe is right (generally as guided by your inner voice), not only for the benefit of your own personal affairs, but also to do justice for your soul that demands recognition and alignment of you and your life with the best it holds for you inside.

That doesn’t mean you have to win. That’s not up to you, though your will, determination and effort will have a lot to do with it.

What it does mean is that you have to put your fear and hesitation aside and take the leap of faith that this is what you must do and that somehow and some way things will work out. Your back is to the wall, and you’re being forced to fight like hell for what you believe in and know is right.

This is no time to go along to get along, nor to hedge your bets and settle for something less than whatever will allow you to live with yourself and your life when the battle is done, however it turns out, knowing you gave it your all.

In short, standing against the storm may at some point require you to push all your chips to the center of the table, to borrow a metaphor from the game of poker. And though it may portend life and death consequences to you or those you love, this is indeed a game being played by the Presence within through the consciousness you know yourself to be (and theirs), to not only meet your needs in this life, but also to advance your journey back to the Creator from which you came.

It is your way of shouting to the Universe, “I matter, and I deserve to be treated fairly and my free will and right to evolve on my own terms should be respected.” And so you bring all that you are to the table, and maybe even all that you’ve acquired or worked to create over the years for yourself and your family, to make sure that it hears your voice.

If you look around, you’ll see many instances of it happening. Those who stood against forced vaccination were making such a stand. So are those who fight to be heard when their voices are stifled or suppressed. The examples are everywhere for those who would see. When you do, draw upon them for strength and inspiration to make your stand when and where you must.

I can’t tell you how or where that will be. Only you will know that for sure, and probably only when you reach the point where you don’t have any other choice.

What’s it got to do with Ascension?

Why is this important for Ascension? I’m glad you asked that question. Or at least, I was hoping you were.

Ascension is the process of moving to new densities of consciousness, where greater love and light can flow into and through us into our lives and world. As it does, it requires we let go of many of the old ways of a three-dimensional world that keep us locked into struggle and conflict. One of those ways is acquiescing to power and living on our knees.

In the old days, if a serf would dare to stand in the presence of his king, he risked having his head cut off. And your standing may have a similar effect now, if things don’t go well.

But at this moment in humanity’s evolutionary journey, the power of the soul and the presence within take precedence over the power of the sword. And though adversaries may smite you down, destroy your career or take all your money, the real battle is within you and your fear of the worldly repercussions of standing up for the best you know inside.

Until you release that fear, or at least act in spite of it, you will always stay chained to this 3D reality and may never ascend into the higher planes of existence. The war is not just for your life in the here and now, but for the future course of your soul’s journey through existence. As the saying goes, it’s better to die on your feet than live on your knees.

Well, your soul wants to fly. It wants to experience the possibilities of love and light that are so limited in much of our lives, and to set the stage for its own metamorphosis into higher levels of expression of the consciousness within that is waiting to be unleashed. It wants SPIRITUAL JUSTICE.

And so you must stand. How, when, where and for what is up to you (and your soul). Why is the promise of becoming more, both for you and the world around you.

For as you evolve into higher expressions of you, the energies you send out into the collective consciousness will begin to create a new world in which the old 3D ways can no longer exist, and others will be naturally uplifted along the way. If you don’t and stay locked in fear, succumbing to the tremendous pressures that will be placed upon you, things won’t change in our world, and most probably will get worse.

You see where it’s going. Only you standing up for you and what you know is right can turn the tide. Perhaps not alone, but if you don’t do your part, who will?

Please, stand. Stand! STAND!!!!!

God bless you indeed. Go with love.
