Words of WisdomYou gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. —Eleanor Roosevelt
To him who is bound to the sense world, the Chaos appears waste and void. But he who penetrates it in a spiritual sense can hear the harmonies of the spheres resounding through it.” Rudolf Steiner
“My question is: Who are these people?” Paul wrote. “Who paid for their hotel rooms? Who flew them in? Law enforcement needs to look at the funding of violent criminal activity like this. And national Democrats need to confront it. It’s organized. It’s paid for. It’s violent. It’s not about Black lives or any lives; it’s about anarchy and destruction.”

Science, philosophy, and religion complement each other harmoniously and constitute different aspects of the same truth. – Paracelsus.
Cauduceus: it is not a medical symbol as incorrectly interpreted in the US – it is a Hermetic symbol of equal balance, exchange, reciprocity. I am inquisitive of her presentation of the symbol. In this modern interpretation, “…the pin actually represents the Mace of the United States House of Representatives: the long, blunt battle staff that has embodied the legislative branch’s authority since 1789.” (Friedman 2019).
“The original artifact, created in 1841, sits in the House chamber and serves as a symbol of the sergeant at arms’ authority as well as his or her role in maintaining decorum. The historic mace is composed of an eagle atop a silver globe on which the world’s continents are etched. The central shaft is actually 13 bundled rods representing the original colonies, along with the idea that we are stronger together than we are individually. …It has long been there, and presumably it always will be. It’s represented the role of Congress, and it’s been a call for comity. But it has also become a symbol of endurance.” (Givhan, R. 2019).

When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” To this day, especially in times of “disaster”, I remember my mother’s words and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers—so many caring people in this world.
The Church (pick your Christian organization of choice here) promotes mortality and its positive effects on family and speaks out strongly against the opposites of it. Theology purports that immorality has a detrimental effect on a society eventually – presented here is some hard science to back it up. The following is an excellent article on one of the most detrimental trends in society – and the thesis is being proven in today’s social order. Presented in the book is the finding that immorality is a cause of the fall of society within three generations; therefore chastity has a valuable effect. A post about this work was found on Facebook of all places; and posted there by a prominent teacher of the hermetic sciences, Mark Stavish – director of the Institute of Hermetic Studies.
I am not a political expert, so I welcome your views on this – I could be wrong. But when you have a new president that is preaching national sovereignty in a globalist world, resistance is what you get. The following are some quick historic notes that attempt to put it all together.
NEW WORLD ORDER: A good thing – if done the right way. Trump’s latest speeches do not seem support this goal.
Watch the historic January 16th, 1991 New World Order speech here: https://www.c-span.org/video/?c4659934/user-clip-bush-world-order
The term “new world order” has been used to refer to any new period of history evidencing a dramatic change in world political thought and the balance of power. Despite various interpretations of this term, it is primarily associated with the ideological notion of global governance only in the sense of new collective efforts to identify, understand, or address worldwide problems that go beyond the capacity of individual nation-states to solve.
The phrase “new world order” or similar language was used in the period toward the end of the First World War in relation to Woodrow Wilson‘s vision for international peace;[a] Wilson called for a League of Nations to prevent aggression and conflict. The phrase was used sparingly at the end of World War II when describing the plans for the United Nations and the Bretton Woods system partly because of its negative associations with the failed League of Nations. However, many commentators have applied the term retroactively to the order put in place by the World War II victors as a “new world order.”
The most widely discussed application of the phrase of recent times came at the end of the Cold War. Presidents Mikhail Gorbachev and George H. W. Bush used the term to try to define the nature of the post-Cold War era and the spirit of great power cooperation that they hoped might materialize. Gorbachev’s initial formulation was wide-ranging and idealistic, but his ability to press for it was severely limited by the internal crisis of the Soviet system. In comparison, Bush’s vision was not less circumscribed: “A hundred generations have searched for this elusive path to peace, while a thousand wars raged across the span of human endeavor. Today that new world is struggling to be born, a world quite different from the one we’ve known”. However, given the new unipolar status of the United States, Bush’s vision was realistic in saying that “there is no substitute for American leadership”. The Gulf War of 1991 was regarded as the first test of the new world order: “Now, we can see a new world coming into view. A world in which there is the very real prospect of a new world order. […] The Gulf war put this new world to its first test”. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_world_order_(politics)
NAFTA: Bringing the Americas together. The North American Free Trade Agreement is an agreement signed by Canada, Mexico, and the United States, creating a trilateral trade bloc in North America. The agreement came into force on January 1, 1994, and superseded the 1988 Canada–United States Free Trade Agreement between the United States and Canada. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_American_Free_Trade_Agreement
ARAB SPRING (Tunisian Revolution): The Arab Spring (Arabic: الربيع العربي) was a series of anti-government protests, uprisings, and armed rebellions that spread across much of the Islamic world in the early 2010s. It began in response to oppressive regimes and a low standard of living, starting with protests in Tunisia (Noueihed, 2011; Maleki, 2011). In the news, social media has been heralded as the driving force behind the swift spread of revolution throughout the world, as new protests appear in response to success stories shared from those taking place in other countries (see Howard, 2011). In many countries, the governments have also recognized the importance of social media for organizing and have shut down certain sites or blocked Internet service entirely, especially in the times preceding a major rally. Governments have also scrutinized or suppressed discussion in those forums through accusing content creators of unrelated crimes or shutting down communication on specific sites or groups, such as through Facebook (Solomon, 2011; Seyid, 2011). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arab_Spring. These changes in government across a wide span of Arab countries happened in rapid succession – Does this look like the work of government-promoting factions such as CIA/MI5? The NWO, NAFTA, ARAB SPRING appear to be the process to a global government.
TRUMP UN SPEECH PROMOTES SOVEREIGNTY: UNITED NATIONS, New York — In his third annual speech to the United Nations General Assembly, President Donald Trump delivered a clear message in favor of nationalism and national sovereignty and against globalism.…Trump, in an oddly subdued speech in New York on Tuesday, reprised his case that all nations should exert their sovereignty, protect their borders, and reject any mutual and international cooperation that doesn’t put their country’s own interests first. For Trump, it’s “America First;” for everyone else it’s “[Insert Country Here] First.” “If you want democracy, hold on to your sovereignty,” Trump said. “And if you want peace, love your nation.” “The future does not belong to globalists; it belongs to patriots,” Trump said at the start of his speech. https://www.vox.com/2019/9/24/20881781/unga-trump-speech-2019-nationalism-sovereignty-again
“Looking around and all over this large, magnificent planet, the truth is plain to see: If you want freedom, take pride in your country. If you want democracy, hold on to your sovereignty. And if you want peace, love your nation. Wise leaders always put the good of their own people and their own country first.
The future does not belong to globalists. The future belongs to patriots. The future belongs to sovereign and independent nations who protect their citizens, respect their neighbors, and honor the differences that make each country special and unique.
It is why we in the United States have embarked on an exciting program of national renewal. In everything we do, we are focused on empowering the dreams and aspirations of our citizens.” https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefings-statements/remarks-president-trump-74th-session-united-nations-general-assembly/
The New Order of the Ages has been the goal among philosophers for centuries. The plan has been well underway for a long time. Trump is interrupting this plan; with the expected severe resistance. So do you still wonder why there are impeachment proceedings?
They want him out.

“The ordeals and oppositions which we undergo become our crosses when we remain beneath them, and yet they become ladders of ascent when we rise above them. The wisdom which makes us their subject has no other end than our elevation and healing, and not that cruel and vengeful intent which is commonly attributed to it by the uninitiated.”
Louis-Claude de Saint-Martin
Trust in God’s goodness.
Be wary of what humans do in God’s name.
– Jonathan Lockwood Huie
Faith is not the belief that God will do what you want.
It is the belief that God will do what is right.

Srimad Bhagavad Gita Saar (Summary)
Why do you worry without cause?Why do you fear without reason? Who can kill you? The soul is neither born, nor does it die.
Whatever happened, happened for the good; Whatever is happening, is happening for the good. Whatever will happen, will also happen for the good only. You need not have any regrets for the past. You need not worry for the future. The present is happening.
What did you lose that you cry about? What did you bring with you, that you think you have lost? What did you produce, which you think got destroyed? You did not bring anything, whatever you have, you received from here. Whatever you have given, you have given only here. Whatever you took, you took from God. Whatever you gave you gave to Him. You came empty handed, you will leave empty handed. What is yours today belonged to someone else yesterday and will belong to someone else the day after tomorrow. You are mistakenly enjoying the thought that this is yours. It is false happiness that is the cause of sorrows.
Change is the law of the universe What you think of as death, is indeed life. In one instance you can be a millionaire and in another instance you can be steeped in poverty. Yours and mine, big and small, erase these ideas from your mind. Then everything is yours and you belong to everyone.
The body is not yours, neither are you of the body. The body is made of fire, water, air, earth and either and will disappear into these elements. But the soul is permanent. So who are you?
Dedicate your being to God. He is the one to be ultimately relied upon. Those who know of His support are forever free from fear, worry and sorrow.
Whatever you do, do it as a dedication to God, this will bring you the tremendous experience of joy and life freedom forever.
Meditation is a transformation of consciousness. When we meditate we change our state of receptivity, like tuning to a higher wavelength. Meditation is attunement.”
