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The focus of today’s post, originally dedicated to a positive super New Moon, has changed, superseded by equally positive political events.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.

We Share This in Common – IC – 101520

Today, we’re already under the influence of a super New Moon that perfects tomorrow in Libra – the sign that rules relationships. This includes legal justice as well as relationships with ourselves, family, friends, community, and Source.

FYI, it’s called “super” because closeness to Earth intensifies its affect.

Be warned, we’re in for another rocky ride. One astrologer foresees “a lot of butting heads.”

Another sees it as a day to “Expand your life!!” Yet another focuses on the higher octave, recommending in the midst of chaos and breakdown, to “BE OPEN To A Higher Love”

Then, of course, there’s Pam Gregory. Followers find her insights immensely helpful. “You are getting me through 2020, Pam. You are my #1 ‘news’ source and I’m infinitely grateful to you.”

She sees two major themes this month. First is “deconstruction of the old order,” establishment clashing with strident demands for equality. Second comes shocking, seismic events: earthquakes, volcanic eruptions or political scandals.

Coinciding with this Libra New Moon, the U.S. Senate’s Supreme Court hearings have attracted unusual interest.

Now, I know some object. Astrology is pagan. It’s morally and/or scientifically wrong to pay attention to New Moons.

My answer: “It depends.” Natural Law is an integral (often overlooked) piece of the larger puzzle. Taken out of context, worshiped to the exclusion (or in defiance) of Source, Agreed. Not wise.

However, it’s useful to know about astral energy information for several reasons.

First, over thousands of years, sages have looked to the stars (not just planets) for information. Certainly, they were on to something important. They couldn’t all be wrong.

Second, whether consciously or unconsciously, no matter how immune we like to believe we are, planetary energies have a powerful affect on moods and behavior. It’s a primal thing we share in common, but have woefully forgotten. (Personally, I prefer be forewarned of “disturbances in the force,” the better to adjust and respond compassionately.)

Third, many follow astrology. Predictions shape expectations. Even when they’re silly, many believe them. So be aware of what people are thinking.

Fourth, again, knowledge of the middle, e=energy level of the Life Wheel is neutral. Its value, positive or negative, depends on the motives and skill of the user. Folks with Hitler-like motives are exploiting 2020’s dynamics to further their ends. They count on programmed, head-in-the-sand attitudes to get away with their schemes.

It behooves the spiritual warriors among us to be more skillful than they are, able to redirect and unify fragmented energies.

The I CHING READING

We’re not trained to come to the Book of Change for answers to our deepest questions. That’s why I’ve chosen to bring the book to you. Through the end of 2020, these bi-weekly blogs are intended to make what was unfamiliar now familiar.

ORIGIN is the first answer to today’s question, “What should we be aware of now?” It picks up where the last post, Where Do We Come From, left off and carries forward the theme of discovering inner worlds:

All people thirst to know the roots of their ORIGIN. At one level, learning about family and cultural traditions fills this need. At another level, this quest is satisfied by seeking for deeper knowledge. The vitality of all races flows from a single source which never runs dry. Avoid narrow-mindedness.

Family and tradition represent the outer rim of daily experience; vitality is the middle, energy level of the Life Wheel which links surface with Center.

In 2020, the chief complaint of “not-enoughness” comes from a powerful thirst for deeper knowledge. Relationship conflicts at every level reflect a programmed, socialized disconnect from Source.

For those who avoid narrow thinking, ORIGIN changes twice. On a hopeful note, line three advises, “Let others know what you can do. Opportunities will develop.”

When the advice is followed, the line changes to DANGER:

DANGER is the true test of character. Be as careful of negative emotions which cloud inner clarity as you are of external dangers. Face all challenges with fearless grace. Hold fast to the goals and ideas which guide you. Act according to what you know to be right. Avoid cowardice.

The Book of Change has warned me of Danger many, many times. I’ll have more to say about this a month from now, when it reappears as a stand-alone. Here, the key is to protect against negative emotions.

The advice of the 4th line supports the 3rd. It hints at the way to explore new worlds. “Withdraw from activities long enough to rest and re-energize yourself.” Meditation, however it’s practiced, is an important counterbalance to 2020 conflict.

Heeded, the 4th line changes to INNER STRENGTH:

When difficult situations come to a head, rely on INNER STRENGTH to endure. If it becomes necessary to retreat, do so with courage and self-confidence. Make sure your inner and outer resources are secure. If you must begin a new life, you will have to depend on them. Avoid helplessness.

This confirms what many of us sense. In 2020’s year of critical mass, situations are coming to a head.

Resources on the surface include family, friends and community. Deeper, they include emotional maturity, mental clarity and steadfast faith in Source.

NOW. When heeded, the changing lines combine to form a familiar outcome. Arrived at in a different way, it’s the same as last time: DEPRESSION:

At times when it seems as if one’s resources are exhausted, care must be taken to soften the harmful effects of DEPRESSION. Whether the cause of depression is mental, emotional or economic, do not despair. The time will pass. Use hardship to develop inner strength and calm. Avoid negative thoughts.

Here there are two keys. First is Inner Strength, which repeats and reinforces the 4th changing line. Second is avoiding negative thoughts, the way to overcome Danger.

Depression too occurs on all levels of the Life Wheel. On the outer rim, it takes economic forms. In the middle, e=energy realm, it manifests as negative emotions. Deeper still, it registers as attachment to false beliefs.

Today’s take-away: rest assured, Depression will pass. In the meantime, benefit from its hidden blessings by exploring inner worlds, the better to return stronger, wiser and prepared to meet whatever may come next.

Collected posts will be published as The Lessons of 2020: Using the Wisdom of CHANGE to Build a Better Future. Look for it on amazon in January of 2021.
