History shows that everytime Peace came to a nation/civilization (Golden Age of Ireland when the fierce Irish put away their swords & stopped their piracy & raiding & took up Druidic Christianity) or an Empire (Pax Romana) that as soon as they became complacent, the have-nots from somewhere else or within invaded & destroyed them(a bit simplistic for Rome, but you get the drift). Volunteer or Privately funded armies of the Etruscans & their holding on to a simplistic pessimistic spiritual system led the Romans to trample that great culture. Warfare has been the terrestial major sport at least for the last 7000 yrs if we can believe what Plato said the Egyptians told Solon.
So does the world have to be turned into a United States where the only warfare is peaceful, regulated, economic competition & styles/fads? Where each 'state' controls its own resources & exchanges fairly for what they need from other states? Where Global Sports are the new battlefield? Perhaps? I'm just thinking in terms of the long run. How do you eliminate wars & warlords? The money saved from Military expenditure cud then be used to balance out inequities.There's going to be a New World Order whether we like it or not. How that new World Order is set up depends on us. Will the military be just flipped over to a Police state? There are several possibilities & a power struggle for each version. How do we create a New Global World Situation where warfare between Humans & Nature, The Sexes, Races, & Ethnicities can be channeled into a more peaceful & productive way of living for our whole Earth?
There are people & groups who are working on this as I write. I'm hoping that the 3 steps forward, 1-2 steps back progress can turn into just 1 step forward & no steps back. We all on a global consciousness level have designed our Reality on this planet. Our Mindsets & Belief Systems control the outcomes. We need to continue to support those who are mentally, physically, spiritually & emotionally are thinking, believing & projecting that this Earth experiment blossom into something we cannot even conceive of how wonderful. If the peaceful explosion of technology is a physical foreboding of what will happen on the Mental, Emotional & Spiritual levels we have nothing to fear. We all must do our part. Action is the Western way. We cannot sit & be complacent in our caves assuming this will happen as parts of the Orient have done for ages.
Look at India, with all its diverse tribes, religions & groups, a 'backward' spiritual nation now awakening at the forefront of technology & science. Perhaps what goes on there will mirror how the whole planet will behave. Or will it be the new experimental China controlled by a 'Agnostic/Atheistic' elite who will realize their own 'spirituality' & that the future of the world may depend on how they behave. Or will America with its daily growing diversity & the conflicts arising from that be the forerunner? Will the worlds most amazing experiment(in 7000 yrs), our Democratic-Republic live up to its own Dream? The American Dream, our version of the Pax Romana?
Amazing things are happening in our world. We must Think & Feel & Project that the best will happen because if not the doomsayers will get what they want, each thinking that their 'enemy scum' will be wiped out & they, the righteous of whatever persuasion will have a paradise to themselves. Even if you are an Atheist you must reconize that Quantum physics has proven that the attitude & belief of the experimenter on the outcome of their research has an effect on what they perceive as the end result. This translates to our everyday world. This makes our Minds more than just Brain machines. It basically says we have a Consciousness inhabiting a construct of Mother Nature called a body. If we blew up the nucleas of a hydrogen atom to the size of a pea, the space between its orbiting electron wud be six football fileds cubed. So thats alot of space. Our reality is a Construct we have all agreed upon. An Illusion of sorts, but a Definitive Valid Illusion.
On the most simplistic level you every once in awhile close your eyes & see yourself in some future time enjoying yourself doing what you like, say snorkeling in Mauii & the World is wonderful & at peace. Their are groups who meet & do definitive creative visualization of the future. There are factions in the govt & industry who realize this & hope to use it to their ends. The destruction/implosion of Bldg. 7(which housed the nerve centers of the NYPD, CIA, FBI, NSA, NSC, AI, etc.) of the WTC under cover of a left alone 'Islamic' Terrorist attack while they stole billions of gold bullion & destroyed their records in the 911 attack. There are Govt agencies who fight wars on the so-called Astral Plane & some conspiratorationalists say there is a Space War going on right now & that Chemtrails are to cover it up, not prevent Global Warming. Who knows what to believe with all the Info pumped at us via the WWW?
However we can still see each of as individuals or families or partners being in a wonderful future environment in our Minds Eye. This is a Free Will Universe no matter your beliefs. The Future cannot be predicted only guessed at because of the natural Spontaneity built into Free Will. If it wasn't there the Universe would stagnate & Entrophy wud take effect. They now know that the Universe is in constant expansion & will not reach a point where it will contract. Too many new 'souls' or stars coming into being. So be Loving. Be Joyful. Be Creative. Be Forgiving. And most of all be thankful that you are an eternal indivisible part of a greater whole, the eyes & ears in our dense dimension of a Benevolent Beingness beyond our wildest Imagination.
Jane Roberts the 20th c. Poet & Novelist who channeled her 'Personality Essence' called 'Seth' had along w/her husband Robert Butts written a dozen or more books (& was probably more responsible than anyone for kickstarting the whole 'New Age' movement & its offshoots) about what this part of her consciousness related. Many Physicists attended her classes to ask Seth questions which later on in Labs were proven. Seth said that "We live in a Safe Universe.", "We Create our own Reality", "The Present is the Point of Power.", "Time is Simultaneous, not Linear, so we can change the Future & the Past but only from the Point of the Expansive Present." among bookloads of other stuff. Seth said he did not want to start a "Cult" or be regarded as any kind of Messiah, as though no longer embodied he was equal to us & we all to the tiniest particle wave of consciousness. He just wanted to help along a change in our consciousness to help us thru what was coming. His only prediction in all the books was that our planet would not be destroyed & that the 21st c. would show constant improvement if we wished & that by 2075 we would have a amazing planet beyond our wildest dreams. My favorite quote is his response to someone concerning a quote above: "I said "We live in a Safe Universe". I didn't say it was Perfect."
