It’s NOT a Game, Man! – 111520

The focus of today’s post, originally dedicated to a positive super New Moon, has changed, superseded by equally positive political events. It was originally called There’s No Ending Without a New Beginning.

I intended to pick up where I left off in The Choice Ahead. There, the I Ching reading FINISH says just this. Today’s implication: although radical operatives have the gall to claim the presidential race is a over — a done deal, President Trump and team are just getting started.

My second choice for a title was Chutzpah. That’s part of today’s message, but just one piece. (I’ll get back to Camp Biden’s gall in a bit.)

The title I finally settled on comes from one of a several prescient posts. To Tell the Truth describes a game show. It speaks so directly to 2020’s current events that I quote from it verbatim.

The point here: Trump is the current and future President. Biden’s cabal can posture and pretend all they like, but Don’t Be Fooled. With Mike Pompeo, Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, Sebastian Gorka, Steve Bannon, Dan Bonjino, Charlie Kirk and a whole host of other loyal patriots on high alert, the steal isn’t happening. No way.

Bogus claims . . . remind me of the long-running TV game show, “To Tell the Truth.” In this format, three challengers are introduced to a celebrity panel, each claiming to be the featured guest.

Impostors can lie and pretend to be the central character. Only the real one is sworn to tell the truth. Panelists are challenged to ask penetrating questions, see through deceptions, and correctly identify the truth teller.

In this game reality, the best liars are rewarded. But that’s not how it works in the real world. There’s nothing entertaining or ultimately rewarding about deceiving the public. Yet, at this stage of history, it’s nigh unto impossible for all but the most discriminating (in the positive sense) tell the difference between imitators and the “real deal.” Shameless parodies . . . abound.

Hucksters out to make a quick fortune while basking in their 15-minutes of fame misrepresent both their intentions and abilities. The sure-fire get-rich formula . . . is to tap into people’s deepest desires and fears. . . .

Offer gullible marks whatever it is they want on the one hand, and guarantee protection from the consequences of stupidity on the other.

In a crowded market place full of unscrupulous pretenders, how do messengers of substance and integrity stand out from the noisy crowd? Even screaming isn’t heard over the ruckus. Their only option is to play by the rules – quietly, persistently Tell the Truth.

Further down, it continues:

Still more ridiculous is the assumption that we as individual drops of water can make the tidal waves of history change direction – as if puny humans had the superior wisdom and power to influence the forces of nature and nature’s God. . .

A basic premise of New Age distortions is that superior humans, if they don’t like the current course of history, can just rewrite history, avoiding the consequences of past action. That is not positive change. The attempt is a delusional waste of precious time.

Today’s place in history is the cumulative consequence of thousands of years of poor choices. To continue an earlier thread, keep in mind the Old Testament prophet Daniel. He foresaw an end time followed by a new beginning. There is no short-cut from here to there that by-passes the tough part of the process he envisioned.

Those who intend to survive to partake of that new beginning would be far better off to heed what is written and align themselves with the tides of Titanic times, rather than resisting or presuming to circumvent them.

. . replace the unsustainable, corrupted foundation of false paradigms (feet of clay) with a complete and correct paradigm. Like childbirth, the process isn’t necessarily fun, but the outcome is worth it.

* * *

Daniel 2:44. And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed . . it shall stand for ever.

Daniel’s vision of this basic truth was written long ago. (Daniel 2:45. . . The dream is certain; and the interpretation thereof sure.) He’s a central character who told the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but.

* * *

In combination, the carefully planned, highly organized attempt to steal an election, preemptively set a dispensable traitor up under the false flag of “President Elect,” and self-righteously plagiarize Gorke’s War for the Soul America language, represent a cascading tide of unmitigated gall.

I was hard put to find a word strong enough to describe it, but Chutzpah includes them all.

It comes from the Hebrew word ḥutspâ (חֻצְפָּה), meaning “insolence,” “cheek” or “audacity.”

The superlative form, chutzpadik, means impudent, impertinent, brazen, and not showing due respect. Now, that’s key. Radical operatives have no due respect for the will of the people, not for the will God, nor for law on any level:

  • Divine Law – truth, conscience
  • Natural Law – human nature, timing (evil will be outed & routed)
  • Human Law – constitutional fair election rules

And, consistent to form, insolent dems point the finger at the “Orange Man,” accusing him of exactly the crimes against civilization that they’re in fact perpetrating.

But let not your heart be troubled. In the last post, I shared the Chinese legend of the wise old fox who treads lightly across a frozen lake to safely reach the far side. I laughed long out loud over the orange fox image I found. It suits our President well.

Backed by seasoned advisors, he’s let foreseen corruption play out so Americans can finally see and appreciate what he’s been up against from the beginning. Way over-confident, depending on deplorables’ timidity, dems have brazenly over-stepped the limits of what we’ll ignore and acquiesce to.

Let chutzpadiks be ware. Some things can’t be stolen. As the President knows and depends on, LOVE is one of them.

  • Love of God
  • Love of Life
  • Love of Family and Country.

At end-stage 2020, here’s another basic choice we must face. What is the purpose of language? Is it:

For those who scan through blogs, I’ve created an image to catch your attention. This list is just a hint. Feel free to edit, elaborate and expand on it however you like.

So. I’ve used up my allotted space for today. I’ll conclude by supplying links for those who’d like to see more. A first set includes other prescient posts. A second set includes links to videos describing the alignment of today’s New Moon energies. (BTW, Traditionally new moons are regarded as the best time to release the old and set your intentions for a new beginning.)

NB. For those who by programming dismiss the I Ching and other unfamiliar forms of e=energy information: knowledge is power. Yes. In the hands of Mickey Mouse apprentices, magic has its dangers. But this is no excuse to ban it. In right form, used right way, for the right reasons, it is a way to return power (which elites hoard for themselves) to the people.

Good News & Bad News for Millennials

In duality, every gift has positive uses as well as opposite and equal abuses. The two-edged consequences of working with the Book of Change are no exception.

So when an ambitious millennial marketer of digitized experience – simulated sex, happiness and good mood “music” – tweeted me that his software products are based on the binary-digital code of the I Ching, I cringed. What?? Not possible. The primary purpose of this discipline is to quiet the emotional mind-body as a necessary first step in listening to conscience and making better decisions.

After a review the business website (I won’t embarrass him by naming it), I tweeted back indignantly. “This is an abomination. No connection. Don’t compare.” He quickly backtracked, replying he only intended personal respect for the book.

Why such an intense response? Let me refer back to the Old Testament, which repeatedly mentions the laws of nature codified in the I Ching in their correct, larger context. Many are familiar with King Solomon’s verses about natural change:

For ever thing there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven.

Here, nature is placed between reason (purpose) on the one hand, and heaven on the other.

But how many recall the prophet Daniel’s vision of nature in necessary relationship to the unchanging Creator. From the King James Version:

2:20 . .  Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:

2:21. He changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and seteth up kings:

and giveth wisdom unto the wise . . .

The Book of Change can be instrumental in the mindfulness practice of slowing down, regulating and reconnecting an individual’s noisy mind with the intuitive, True Self. Correctly used, it is compatible with timeless Truth. But in the larger scheme of life, it serves as a gatekeeper. Nothing more.

Here’s an illustration worth 1000 words that pictures the valid and necessary place of the natural law codified in the I Ching.   It shows both what it is – a two-directional gatekeeper – as well as what it is NOT.

0 Only Way Out

Worshipping nature instead of God is upside-down. Stimulating senses with the effect of obliterating reason and blocking out the voice of conscience is an abomination. It is neither mind-expanding nor “spiritual.”

Daniel the prophet dream-seer interpreted important end-time visions for King Nebuchadnezzar (more on “the feet of clay” another time). He also interpreted the fatefully ominous message of handwriting on the wall for Nebuchadnezzar’s son, King Belshazzar, who indulged in natural sensations to the exclusion of nature’s God. (See wp.me/p46Y5Z-cm.)

It would be well worth the Millennial entrepreneur’s time to revisit the larger context of 2 John 1:11. “For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.”

This is why it’s so important that I take a stand. Indulging the senses out of context is seductive but desperately foolish. It is a choice for the dark side. I cannot silently allow the claim of connection with this precious gift to anyone who abuses it.

Similarly, in larger, holistic context, math-based, computerized sciences are gifts bearing opposite and equal potentials for good or evil, depending on how and why they’re used, and by whom. They can facilitate friendships and connection, educate and spread useful information – OR – lull the sheep into deadly sleep . . . simultaneously facilitating the ends of genocidal murderers who wage wars of mass destruction.

Life, time and attention are all precious gifts. The gift of free will grants each of us the personal choice of whether to squander them or use them wisely.

So, there’s good news and bad news. The choice is up to you. Failing to choose is also a choice.
