I mentioned my vision of a terrible hurricane in an area not normally used to hurricanes. I had a dream this afternoon while taking a nap, it was one of those dreams, the kind I knew was a premonition. I was visiting a close friend in Virginia. We were driving south toward Florida. The weather was abysmal. There was horrible pounding rain and winds, flooding all along the eastern seaboard from where she lived into the southern United States. She told me it had (so this was the future maybe 1-5 years from now?) that this was just the way it was now all the time. Hurricanes were constantly bombarding the southeast and south, most of the time they didn’t make landfall but they left horrible flooding and devastation along the coast from where she lived all the way down through the Florida pan handle and I believe into the Gulf of Mexico although she didn’t specifically say that. She drove through it. People got used to it and it was just the new normal. I suppose people no longer lived close to the ocean at least during the hurricane season because it seemed that there had been an adjustment to this new pattern.
The other thing I want to mention here is something I believe could turn very dark if not turned around. Right now the Republican house is trying to pass a budget that would give the wealthiest one percenter and major corporations a cap of 25% tax. Right now the most they pay is 35%. They want to take away health care for the aged and children and do away with entitlements which of course we are entitled to since we pay into them via our work. This horrific greed is going to backfire if passed. There is already talk that the government might shut down for a period and government workers are afraid they will never get paid for the time they are required to work – so in essence our government will be sanctioning a new kind of slavery. Bringing me to the point that this appears to be the case in all fields. I have seen the record industry fall to pieces first hand, now the film industry and people are working not just for less than what they did before – often they are working literally for free hoping they will get something out of something on the back side.
This is a trend and it’s not a good one. The richest 400 families who make the same amount of money as half of all working Americans combined seem to believe that keeping what they have and letting everyone eat cake is their ticket to maintaining power and securing their personal futures – but let me assure you that this will not be the case – in fact I’m certain if this trend continues we will see the destruction of our country through violent revolution. Perhaps not today, or tomorrow but in our life times. When a country slides from being middle class to looking like a bombed out version of itself, with income levels sliding and people desperate to survive eventually we will get to the point where people will no longer be able to sustain their lifestyles – children will go hungry, people will die and this will push the next generation into a corner where they will be forced to fight for the things that generations fought for a hundred years ago – like unions and fair wages and decent working conditions. People died for these privileges that some grew up believing were rights. Combine this with an unsustainable number of human beings on this earth and a dependence on unsustainable, finite resources for fuel (which literally enables our way of life) and we are headed for a human disaster of unparalleled proportion.
I really wish we had a government that was a democracy instead of a bunch of power-hungry vultures who feed on the desires of lobbyists and multinational corporate interests. Those interests are in direct opposition to the interests of life here on earth – not just for humans, but for all beings. I’m sure many of you are as angry as I am about this. I’ve thought long and hard about what to do and how to change things, however the way things are going it’s nearly impossible for a person to just keep their head above water and survive let alone take on these huge issues which is exactly what our government relies on in terms of our complicity in their Faustian pact with multinational corporations.
Anyway, if anyone has ideas on the subject I’d love to hear what you have to say.
Many blessings, to all,
Oh, and I want to mention I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about the recently discovered “dwarf” planet Eris. It’s interesting she was found and finally named fairly recently. She is the Goddess of discord – sister to Aries, her son was God of strife. She is best known for hurling a golden apple into a wedding party addressed to “the fairest” which caused an argument among the Goddesses. Zeus had Paris judge the competition (wisely since it was between his wife, Hera, and two of his daughters Venus and Athena – I might be mixing Roman and Greek pantheons here so forgive me). The interesting thing to note here are the two things that came out of this – one was the seemingly innocuous golden apple which was really a malicious, manipulation to cause a fight and the second was the Trojan war which also had that element. It was a fake horse sent as a supposed gift that the guards let in and became the city’s downfall.
So it seems the theme here is a “gift” which is really a pathway to destruction. Interesting that we are seeing the middle east explode with the advent or gift of the internet, and social networking sites supposedly inciting the youth to rise up and demand democracy. So either Eris has been misrepresented in a way and strife is a way to get people to act for the better good, or there is something we are not fully aware of in terms of how all of this will eventually play out on a larger scale.
Love to hear your thoughts! I’m going to continue to look into these new planets and try to figure out how they are related to things going on in our world. They are clues for sure. If anyone has ideas about the myths and associations in our world in regards to them please post them!

Thank you for your postings. When you asked for how to work with this train of the corruption in this country, I think of 1) Sen. Bernie Sanders of VT, who champions the issues of the working people, the environment. He is a voice, though often ignored in the Congress. Perhaps we can support him with emails, on Facebook etc. Or even with $. Give him our positive energy; 2) I think of the collective consciousness, its power to change a dire situation when we are all aligned. The Chilean miners rescue is a great example. We ALL wanted them to survive and unscathed. I reflect on this a lot. Why can’t we turn things around quickly in Japan? Or as you mentioned, in the US Congress? We are not aligned with love. Most outside of blogs like yours aren’t even aware. I post things on my FB page, knowing that I could look like a major pessimist, attempting to inform friends and family in the comfort of their suburban, professional lives.
Perhaps each of us can spread the real news and frame it in a what can you do about it kind of manner. That takes courage and balance, like what you are doing here. I believe that when people are aware, they will do something. We have been lulled by media/materialism to blindly follow for so long.
All goodwill, Sue
Thanks for sharing your visions and for standing up for what is right. I do think we are going into a period where many people are in denial, and will accept “this was just the way it was now all the time”. It is time for citizens of the world to wake up, start by taking back control of their lives, helping each other rather than relying on government, and get back to basics.
Thanks for all you do all your goodwill.
Some thoughts on your recent postings, and what is to come. As you know, I am psychic myself, and get stuff all the time. I have been thinking about the japanese reactor situation. At the moment, it is a crisis, but not a catastrophe, in the sense of millions being killed by nuclear fall-out. In spite of the sensationalism, the existing fallout elevels are going to give some people illness and cancers, but a minute proportion of the population, so far.
The reactors, and I get this psychicly, asre not going to blow. We are in for months of badly handled rescue work, but eventually Fukushima is going to be shut down, and the radiation contained. I think there will be a large “Dead zone” around the Reactor, equal to the present evacuation and fall out zones. Bad for the japanese, but it will be tamed, like Chernobyl was tamed. The rest of us will not be greatly effected.
I also get psychicly that I will live to a very great age, which sounds unlikely, given what is to come, but I get this repeatedly. Also, what kind of World I am in then. Horrible, but fascinating, like a science fiction film of the future. Even more technology, gadgets, etc etc, and permenent political, economic and social crisis. The Global crisis we are now in the first part of, will deepen, rapidly. The impact of peak energy supplies, (no more oil soon) and peak food, plus massive natural disasters, and the urge by the main great powers to seize everything for themselves, will make for a very nasty, blade-runner type society. (see the movie, to see what is coming!). The smaller countries will be integrated into a tight system of interaction/cooperation, and exploitation of their natural resources. Democracy will become a bare sham. Society will split in two, with the massive underclass, and a small elite. (The 400 familes, in Amerika.)
The underclass will rebel, in ways not forseen. The internet is only the beginning of this new world. Like I said: See the movie. Bladerunner. how did they get it sooo right?
Thanks, its usefully
There are all kinds of win win win win win solutions, humane ones at that. We put a man on the moon and developed mega computers that fit in our hands. We can solve the economic and political problems, but people need to stop waiting for others to move forward. Others need to get out of the way of those who have historically produced. The problems begin with fear, or “faith” in “loss.” Seeds (money) needs to be spread like fertilizer. Everyone, rich and poor have lost and are afraid to release the seeds they are holding – for planting. Those holding the seeds need to stop “eating” the seeds or letting them rot in their pockets.
We must stop “usury”; it is evil and historically never worked.
We must return to justice. Justice is needed for balance in nature and with an economy; yin and yang, positive and negative, right and wrong, faith and despair.
We are afraid that the “spreading of the wealth” has turned into stealing of the wealth. If you take away from those who have created the wealth and give it to others, it will, after much loss end up back with those who believed for it in the first place. If you don’t earn it, you don’t appreciate it, you don’t take care of it, you lose it.
Those who may feel as is fair game may learn they have killed the goose that laid the golden egg – for the world. Put it another way: maybe America was the motor of the machine and some want to move it into the front seat of the car.
Prayer is focused thought. Fear is focused thought. Fear is prayer for what is wanted least. Hate, envy, greed is focused thought. We need to overcome these focused upon evils and get back to being a nation under God!
Please forgive this 2:31 am I-phone questionable grammar opinion!
I have been catching up on U.S. news last night — cannot believe the fed gov is contemplating a shutdown. I did not see even a year ago how things could get so bad people might riot, as you and others have foreseen, but now I do. Let’s see..massive foreclosures, no jobs, gov shutdown, no future prospects = a formula for what do we have to lose? @ buddhadreamer – my cousins in the U.K. say there are riots there that are going unreported or are given almost no coverage…
Denise: What you are describing is what I call “structural greed.”
I have been studying its history recently. After FDR’s New Deal we saw the largest period of economic growth in the U.S.—egalitarian growth that benefitted everyone (with a few exceptions like the African-Americans). But this was an exceptional time in history…everything basically changed during the Reagan administration.
During this time a subtle ideological shift has slowly changed the mindset of many people, resulting in the notion that the stockpiling of wealth or hoarding by individuals and corporations has become not only acceptable, but actively encouraged by social structures.
We have seen opposing economic theories juggled around to cut social programs and safety nets while cutting taxes for the wealthy. The Republicans have maintained slicks campaign that used the fear of the fundamentalists in the heartland to get votes by attacking issues such as “family values,” abortion and gay marriage. They continue to get people to vote against their own interests this way.
And then they all blew themselves up in September, 2008. But instead of letting the (evil) institutions that created the mess go…they GAVE them over a trillion dollars, plus trillions more in loans. Here is what Matt Taibbi said about Wall Street in his book, Griftopia:
It invented a mountain of money in the form of a few trillion dollars worth of bogus mortgages and rolled it forward for a few years, until reality intervened . . . [and] We the Taxpayer had to buy it from them, at what they called face value, for the good of the country . . . we paid for a this instead of a generation of health insurance, or an alternative energy grid, or a brand-new system of roads and highways. With the $13-plus trillion . . . we could not only have bought and paid off every single subprime mortgage in the country (that would have cost $1.4 trillion), we could have paid off every remaining mortgage of any kind in this country—and still have a new house for every American who does not already have one.
Sorry to go on so long!
