NESARA, Global Accounts, Rapture, ETs; Who or What is going to save YOU?

Wouldn’t it be just grand if we didn’t need to do anything for ourselves and someone else would come along, bail us out of the mess we’ve created, make us instantly wealthy, and bring on the new age without us lifting a finger?

Now everyone who is convinced that any of this is really going to happen move to the left side of the room.   The rest of us needs to move over to the right side of the room so we can have a little conversation about reality.

As I talk about in the pages associated with this blog, I’m pretty much weird and have a different type of philosophical and political viewpoint.   Because of those two factors, plus others, I often sit back take things in and then just mull them over.   Such has been the case with all of the feel good, I don’t have to do anything solutions to the current conditions we find ourselves in.

Anyone who truly believes that ETs will come in to release us from the influence of TPTB [The Powers That Be] or some miracle act will relieve us of the ongoing exercise of survival will badly misinformed should consider a reality check.

What is it going to take to get people to readily see that nothing changes in their personal lives until they take responsibility for it and make change happen?  Just as that is the reality as to our personal lives it is also the reality in our homes, communities, states or provinces, nations and planet as a whole.

Changes happen in our relationships and homes only after we start to change the way we are.   Once we understand that it is not what the other person does that creates the problem but how we react and what we do that is at issue.   It’s not that a husband leaves his socks on the bedroom floor but how we react to the socks being on the floor of the bedroom that contributes to the problem.

If we react by getting angry and yelling about them leaving their socks lying around what do we expect but an angry confrontation in return.   We should try to look at why do we react in such an extreme manner to find out what truly is the issue that lies hidden underneath.   By changing how we perceive the events in our lives and what constitutes right and wrong reaction does our energies begin to effect others into making changes themselves.

Thus by each of us making individual changes does the social memory complex fabric begin to change in such a manner that the actions of the individuals are molded into a more cohesive harmony.  Only by changing the “moral” standards which we dictate to be acceptable behavior will we get the world to change.

“To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must first put the family in order; to put the family in order; we must first cultivate our personal life; we must first set our hearts right.”

Common Law and Sovereignty-Not The Answer!

Because of my occupation I have been around the sovereignty movement for most of 30 years.  Yes it’s that old and has been around a long time.   Just like the old time snake oil salesmen, I’ve seen the sovereignty concept pitched for use for just about everything.

As for the current common law/sovereignty movement, the underlying desire and hunger for change and something better which is systemic to the current conditions we find ourselves in today is the foundation being used for personal sovereignty being pitched as the way to gain fulfillment of those desires and hunger pangs.

The problem with that is it is purely based on a lack of knowledge and the failure to be open minded enough to not see all effecting factors.  There is no such thing as personal sovereignty!  Sovereignty is supreme power or authority over something and that something is usually control or the governing of a group of people.  Truthfully we don’t and can never have supreme authority or power over these bodies we inhabit at all.  The mere fact we can’t control the health or death of it should be sufficient to make that point obvious.

Back to a more direct point, let’s begin with an overly simplified investigation of what is “common law”.  Common law is what arose in the 12th and 13th centuries as civilizations, especially the civilizations on the British Isle, came out of the “dark ages”.  The justice system that existed prior to that was a chaotic system based on feudal law over ridden by the authority of the monarchy.  Under that system each feudal estate was under the control of the local landowner who set the laws for his estate but owed allegiance to and was subject to the taxation of the crown.

As an example of how the free man faced justice, If I was to steal an apple on one estate I might be made to do sufficient extra work until I paid for that apple with the amount of work determined by the head of the feudal estate.  On another estate for the theft of an apple I might be placed in some type of confinement for 10 years.

The system of justice was riddled with inequity.  To attempt to solve the problem the English system began evolving not because of the inequity for the common people but because those of titled nobility got tired of the burdensome actions of the monarchy.

This evolving was manifested through the creation of certain documents that specified that limited the power of the monarchy and established certain rights for the nobles which bled down to the common people.

What came out of the discontent of the nobles began, as far as the legal system was concerned, with basically three different courts being established within the English system.  Laws were drawn up and put into place by a two house parliamentary system.

It was the duty of the crown to enforce the laws while the courts decided how those laws were applied.

As the courts decided, or issued rulings, on how those laws were to be applied in various circumstances those rulings then became how they were used in applying the laws to future cases.   This then is truly what is “common law” and to be more specific the common law as we know it is really something called case based law.

[Remember I said this was an overly simplified view so don’t ding too hard with the comments!]

What most people today are thinking about when they refer to “common law” is more akin to the inalienable rights that Jefferson described in the Declaration of Independence.  They are trying to say that each of us at birth have certain rights that should be sacrosanct.  They see that even that “rights” are being abused and infringed upon by those abusers of power.  They desire to regain a semblance of being in control and they look for a way to protect those rights and make them inviolable.

They have reasoned that the people have a right to do whatever necessary to seek out the way to make them inviolable.  Someone then came along and said look I have the solution and its based upon the “common law”.  But the “common law” that they seem to think exists, doesn’t and never has.

The promoters of this approach then came up with something they are calling a common law jury. The create this system for creating and running these juries but when they try to give it legitimacy through historical precedent that they go astray.

Since there has never been anything even close to what they are trying to create or remotely conceived of in any document, for them to say the power rests in common law is a fallacy and deception.

They point to the U.S. grand jury system and use a single statement by a single judge as proof.  However, if you research the case the statement was made in regards to you find it was referring to a very limited definition of a single characteristic of the grand jury system.

The grand jury that exists in the U.S. Constitution was created to correct a flaw in the English case law or common law system.  In the English system at the time of the American Revolution the representative of the English crown had the sole authority to decide who and with what crime a person was charged with.  This of course led to abuse of power by the representatives of the crown, hence, the need to limit the power of the representatives of the government.

To correct that abuse of power problem the founders of this country established a panel of peers system to decide and determine when there was cause enough for a person to be charged and tried of a crime.  The way that system is implemented has evolved through the years influenced by our three branch and checks and balances system.

To begin the process a representative of the government (Federal prosecutor) has to convince a Federal district judge that there is sufficient reason to believe that it would be in the best interest of the welfare of the people to seat a grand jury.  The prosecutor has to prove that it is in the best interest of the people to further determine whether there is sufficient evidence to warrant charging a person with a crime.

Once a judge is satisfied he will authorize the calling of jurors to make up a grand jury.  A grand jury is composed of between 16 and 23 members and most times with 2-3 alternates.  To protect the “target” of a grand jury investigation and the identity of those  testifying in case there is no indictment the work and session of a grand jury are secret.

That doesn’t mean that the “target” of a grand jury isn’t made aware of the presence of a grand jury investigating something about them as all grand juries issues a letter, called a target letter, to those that the grand jury will be focusing upon.  Those targeted by the grand jury are given the opportunity if they so choose to appear before the grand and give testimony but the government cannot compel them to testify.

A grand jury does not have unlimited time to make up their minds whether to indict or not.   A Federal grand jury is limited to 18 months plus one 6 month extension to reach agreement on an indictment or fail to indict.  To reach indictment only requires that 12 members of the 16-23 members of the grand jury reach agreement for an indictment.

The biggest problem with the grand jury system is a tendency for the grand jurors to believe that even if there really isn’t enough evidence to prove the crime that the next phrase will correct any mistakes they may make.  [Hence, the old remark that a Federal prosecutor could indict a ham sandwich for murder.]  Once a “target” is indicted they are then arrested, processed and then goes through the long period until he gets his day in court to face the determination of whether they are found to be innocent or guilty.

However, the fallacy in the notion that the grand jury’s findings are cushioned by the system is that simply having to endure the arrest and trial process usually winds up destroying the person even if they turn out to be not guilty.

What the common law/sovereignty movement is trying to do today is create some kind of pseudo-grand jury.  However, there is no grounds of legitimacy or legality for the existence of such a jury.  The minimum that would be needed for such a jury to have any power would be societal acceptance, which is sorely lacking. Without a basis to draw the power for simply existence from then the actions of the so-called common law jury becomes nothing more than kangaroo justice and vigilantism.

The more they try to “indict” people on grounds not truly supported by legal evidence but instead upon human emotion, the more they will be seen as a lunatic fringe element as bad if not worse than the ones they claim to be against.   You cannot end tyranny by using the tactics of a tyrant yourself.

They try to convince others and justify themselves by speaking to those longings, desires and characteristics which are inherit traits in all people to want to be free.   They try to justify that because there have been those who have been prone to abuse of power that the only way to correct the situation is to “take justice into your own hands”.

All this will do over time is lead to violence in some form or the other by either members of the movement itself or by the government in “protection” of those being targeted by the common law juries.

Those basic human traits at the heart of all of this can, in most cases, be defined as rights.   These would of course include the right to exist and be, the right to do as one pleases as long as what you do doesn’t infringe upon another individuals right to do as they please, and the right to do whatever one wants to make themselves happy as long as you do not infringe upon others’ right to find happiness as well.  These are the most common of those human traits to which we should be entitled to simply because we exist as a human.  These are also the inalienable rights that I spoke of earlier that Jefferson saw as so important, so fundamental, that he addressed those same rights in the Declaration of Independence.

I agree with the desire that change needs to come but disagree with the how it should come to pass.  The United States was created to be the bellwether for this planet to show how a nation can be a leader in the area of personal liberties.  However, a few men from the very beginning have tried their very greatest to usurp that power and distort it to their own use creating a delay in the achievement of our nation’s highest and best purpose.

Change will come when the people themselves have become weary of being the downtrodden.   No person can be forced to succumb to the will of another without his own willingness to allow it.

Are there times when there is a price to pay for taking such a stand? Absolutely!   Is it too high a price to pay?  Never!

The only thing that keeps one from standing strong against tyranny is fear.   Fear mostly of death and dying.  If one can overcome that fear then the battle is won.

If tomorrow morning when the sun arose 200 million Americans said, “no more will we allow our liberties to be trampled”, those who are attempting to subject us to their will could not ever create enough force to be successful.

All it will take for lasting permanent change is a leader to appear that will guide this nation toward a new beginning, a new life, a new dawn where the rights of the individual not the rights of the masses is the primary focus of this country.   A leader that will be the captain that will steer this country into an era of economic growth and prosperity.  A leader with vision and integrity.

Such people do exist!  We had such a leader to some degree in John Kennedy but he was too much too soon without the support that he needed to make him unstoppable.  Now is the time, we only need to find the person.  LET THE SEARCH BEGIN!

Thoughts

As I was contemplating this morning how much goes through my mind I was drawn to the fact that I can tell the difference between those thoughts that are “my” own and those that originate from a source other than “me”.

When I say that I have thoughts that come from me I mean that there are thoughts that my mind originates about things that deal directly with things in the physical existence world. Such thoughts I would consider that they would mostly be about mundane everyday things. What clothes to wear or things that I need to get done as an example.

Thoughts that come from a source other than my immediate ego/personality self have a different “feel” and “knowing” about them than my “ego” generated thoughts do. These thoughts are always concerning more lofty things than my everyday thoughts.

These are thoughts that can be about what I should be doing in a higher sense, books that need to be written or more abstract and philosophical ideals. They not only have a different “feel” to them but they also come from a different location than the originating place for my thoughts.

It really is hard to explain but if I make the effort to put myself into the mode of awareness of my thoughts I can easily tell which are which. Often I find that the thoughts continue and expand on various avenues of thought that I start to think about.

As an example, I might start to think about where I am in my growing and expansion during this lifestream and suddenly I find that my thoughts are moving along a line that says I wouldn’t be where I am unless some person or persons had not come before me and provided a source for knowledge and learning that was needed to get me to that place.

I started thinking about an idea that I had for a book based on the channelings of LL Research. As I was mentally pursuing that line of thinking I suddenly found my thoughts channeled toward the fact that had it not been for Don, Carla, and Jim there would have been no RA communications and I would not have had the exposure to so much vital information to help me proceed along my journey of awakening.

Each of us if we were to choose to do so could look along the events that make up our own lifestream and find many examples of where if it had not been for some far off strangers having played their role in the cosmic dance the ingredients to make us what we are would not have been. From the Infinite Creator’s mind it all rolled forth to be kept rolling by all that exists including those consciouses that exist as the unseen.

RAISING CONSCIOUSNESS

ORIGINALLY POSTED JANUARY 22, 2012.

You hear a lot of people, including so called gurus and New Age experts, using a lot of buzzwords and terms that are specific to what is going on in the world today or at least should be going on. I often wonder if the people using the terms much less those hearing them really has any idea what they mean.

Personally, I agree with the late Neville Goddard that unless you can truly explain something to someone else in a way that they can understand it you do not really have sufficient knowledge of the subject to fully grasp its meaning. The term “raising consciousness” is such a term. Many of the so called experts and gurus use the term but never seem to get around to explaining it so anyone has enough knowledge about raising consciousness so that they can pass that meaning it to someone else.

Those sitting in an audience at a seminar/workshop go “oh, okay, I got that” but you know in your heart that they don’t really? When the seminar/workshop is over, can you really tell whether your own consciousness is rising or not? As you walk out the door can you on your own put together a plan to raise your consciousness? Do you have any idea what it takes to literally elevate your consciousness to a “higher dimensional thought pattern”? Do you have even a minor understanding of what particular consciousness is being referred to that is being needed to be raised?

Sobering thoughts, aren’t they? How much money have you spent trying to find answers to that question that often defies the ability to form into some sort of mental picture of? I know that the reason you’ve paid for and sit in those seminars and workshops was because somewhere deep within you there was a feeling that something wasn’t right. A feeling that life isn’t as it seems and you know you are missing some knowledge about what life is really like. That feeling can be very disconcerting and frustrating if you can’t find the knowledge you need to feed that nagging desire. The desire that for millennia has often been described as a thirst.

To try to point you in the right direction and help start you toward finding some meaning about this subject, together let’s take a look at how we can take a general look at what we’ll call your consciousness or the sum total of your daily thought patterns. The actual thought patterns we’re talking about are the ones that you can become actively aware of. There are thoughts that almost take place without us being able to consciously control them, we aren’t talking about those, as they begin to take care of themselves in time if you simply address the ones you can do something about.

Our consciousness is the sum total of our thought patterns for a minute, an hour, a day, a week, a month, it doesn’t matter what period, we simply need to look at it as the sum total of how we think about things. Let me try to break that down a little further so that you can get a better grasp of the concept. An average person has between 12,000 and 50,000 individual thoughts every day which combined make up the sum total of our thought pattern for a given day.

Now that’s a lot of thinking about things. We could think about the attitude of the clerk at the grocery store, how sexy that person was that just walked by, what errands we need to do on the way home, the fight we had with someone in our life or any of an infinite number of things. You know it’s just normal everyday mental processing.

The interesting thing is that science has determined that out of those 12,000 to 50,000 thoughts that we have every day approximately 80% is generated with a negative viewpoint attached to them. Take for example the clerk in the grocery store with the attitude, your thought would probably be along the line of how dare that clerk to force their negativity on me which in turns causes me to move toward anger or hostility or some similar pattern but you get the idea. So you see, this is how you go through most of your days. Pretty much reacting to events in your life from a less than positive point of view!

So you see when we speak about raising your consciousness to a higher level or dimension of thought we are simply indicating that what you should be trying to do is raise that average up toward a greater level of “positive” thoughts. Now, how could I possibly achieve that?

Well one easy way is to begin to make yourself to be aware of what thoughts you are generating. Again with the grocery store clerk, if I am trying to keep myself attuned to the type of thoughts I am having I might catch myself taking in the stimulus of their “bad” attitude and catch my mental gears beginning to regurgitate that through in a way that I feel myself beginning to “get a rise out of the situation”. At that point I can with effort stop myself and begin to “rationally and consciously” redirect my thoughts along the line that they probably have had a very bad day and that instead of giving them an “attitude” back I should simply smile give them all the understand and love I can to try to “lift their spirits”. In this way I begin to reprogram my conscious mental processes along a more “positive” path.

I’m not going to tell you it’s a quick or effortless process because it’s not. It isn’t difficult, it just takes perseverance, dedication and a true heart based desire to make yourself better than you are. That’s all. You will not be able to catch yourself “in the act” all the time or even most of the time in the beginning. Even if you simply go back as soon as you realize what happened after the fact and evaluate how you thought about the situation, decide how you should have handled it, make an intention to catch “in the act” and to handle it differently next time, and do so this regularly, you will find that before you know it you’ll be catching yourself “in the act”.

So until next time form yourself an intent and declaration that you will do this, keep a daily journal where at the end of each day you go back over your day before retiring writing down every situation that you can identify, what thoughts were created by this situation, how it was handled correctly or how it should have been handled, and if you fail off the wagon get right back on again. Don’t ever give up!
