Ascended Master Mother Mary, August 19, 2014 through Kim Michaels

******************************************************************************************************************

 

My beloved hearts, I am Mother Mary, the ascended

master who holds the office of the Divine Mother for earth. It is possible for me to attune my consciousness to the pain and suffering that is happening all over the earth. This is not something I do often. It is not something I encourage you to do, for you might easily be overwhelmed by the cries of pain that are rising from human beings in embodiment, from elemental life, and even from the body of the earth Mother.

Yet, it is necessary, once in a while, to take a look at the world and see where there are situations that cause more pain than normal. It is necessary, once in a while, to allow your attention to focus on the issues that need your calls, your invocations, your decrees, your visualization of a divine solution to a man-made problem that has no man-made solution.

A prophecy about the Middle East

Thus, I will begin this discourse by focusing on the situation in the Middle East, where you have seen the civil war in Syria going on for years, and now you see something that is beginning to approach a civil war in Iraq. My beloved, I would draw your attention to a prophecy I made on the first of January 2008, and therefore, I ask the messenger to read from that dictation:

“Unless the moderate people in Islam finally rise up and take a stand against extremism, well then, it will be impossible to stop an escalating conflict that will literally tear the Islamic world apart. And you might think that this will lead to a war against the West, but I tell you, it will not be a war against the West. For once the cat is out of the bag, so to speak, there will be so much infighting amongst the Islamic nations that they will have very little energy, weapons, and attention left over for fighting against the West, being so concerned about first killing their own brothers. I can assure you that there will be a great fracturing of the Islamic world where entire nations could potentially disappear and dissolve into smaller areas, each ruled by their certain chieftain or warlord who is against all others. Such an upheaval is the potential in the Islamic world that it will literally be like the scorched earth, where entire cities can be destroyed; entire cultures can be almost wiped away.”

My beloved, what you are seeing right now is the beginning of this prophecy unfolding. Entire cities have been wiped away; entire cultures have been forced to flee out of where people have lived for centuries. There is no joy in a prophecy being fulfilled, but there is a certain sense of realism that needs to dawn upon the nations of the world.

I have said it before that it is impossible to impose a Western-style democracy on the Middle East. But what needs to dawn on the Western nations, and which has not dawned until this moment, is the realization that you cannot treat people in the Middle East the same way you treat each other in the Western world or in the modern, developed world. The entire ideal that you can solve conflict through peaceful negotiations is simply not applicable to the people in the Middle East. What, then, should the Western nations do? What, indeed?

Why man-made problems have no solutions

This is a man-made problem. It is not a problem made in modern times. It is not a problem made by the Western nations, even though there are people in the Islamic nations who are always pointing the finger at the West. The Western nations somehow feel responsible for this situation, but this is a false sense of responsibility.

I am not in any way denying that the Western nations have always, at least in the recent century, attempted to influence events in the Middle East. I am not denying that there are huge, international, world corporations that have attempted to influence nations. I am not denying that Western nations want to maintain a steady supply of oil from the Middle East. What I am saying is that the Western, democratic nations need to stop feeling responsible for stopping a conflict that they have not created, regardless of the rhetoric coming out of certain Islamist extremists. The Western nations are not responsible for the current misery in the Middle East.

As I have talked about before, no people on the face of this earth are more divided amongst themselves than the Arab people and the people in the Middle East in general. This is the problem that Islam was meant to address: to stop the fighting amongst the Arab people. But this has not happened. As you can clearly see, Islam has been used to divide Sunni and Shi’a but also other factions. How many other factions are there, my beloved? I can of course count this, but there are so many that, for most human beings in embodiment, it is impossible to even keep track of them, for they morph all the time and change their names and do this and do that.

This division is the problem, this division where you are willing to kill your brothers and sisters indiscriminately in order to further what you see as a desirable end. You may say that it is God’s Will to establish an Islamic state based on Sharia law. You may say that because this end is so important, any means that you deem necessary to accomplish that end are automatically justifiable. You may believe that they are justifiable in the eyes of God and that he will reward you for doing his work on earth, but you are mistaken. And because you are completely mistaken, you become a tool for the forces who oppose God. There is no other way to state this from a sense of realism.

How the West furthers the conflict in the Middle East

What I said in 2008 was that the moderate people in Arab nations needed to awaken and make their voices heard. Have they done so? They have attempted to do so, but have they yet done so to the point where it has had a major impact on the region? No, they have not, my beloved. What needs to be questioned is the entire mentality that the ends can justify the means. Then it needs to be seen honestly that Islam, Judaism, Christianity, and other religions and political philosophies have been used to define an end that justifies the means of killing your own brothers and sisters.

This is the very consciousness that needs to be acknowledged and addressed. My beloved, it is the overcoming of this very consciousness that is the foundation for Western-style democracies. This consciousness has been overcome to a critical degree, or democracies could not have been established and have survived for as long as they have. What the Western world will not recognize is that the progress made in their part of the world has not been made in Islamic nations in the Middle East, and that is why there can be no negotiation on equal terms with such people. What, then, can the West do? Clearly, we are not encouraging a military intervention like the invasion of Iraq, but what they can do is stop supplying the arms and the credit that enables this fighting to start and to go on, and to go on, and to go on.

My beloved, how is it possible that a small group of people in a nation like Syria and Iraq suddenly have such an abundant supply of weapons that they can wage a war against an established and well-equipped government with a trained and fairly large army? How is this possible unless they received those weapons from some source outside their own country? This, my beloved, is something that the Western world has not been willing to address openly and honestly.

It is partly because the Western world itself is engaged in supplying arms to various groups around the world because they still have remnants of the consciousness that there are certain ends which justify killing and justifies the supply of weapons to those who are willing to kill. This must end, and I look to you who are the spiritual people to make the calls and hold the vision that there will be a major exposure of arms dealing around the world, how it is tied to governments even in the West.

Have you not seen in the last few years how even the American nation has been embarrassed by the leak of information? Do you think, my beloved, that there is no more information that could be leaked? I tell you, there are mountains of information that could be leaked, and that potentially need to be leaked. The governments themselves are not willing to do the necessary house cleaning and recognize that you cannot, on the one hand, claim to have a free nation with a democratic form of government and at the same time, under the table, be supplying arms to various groups who are not loyal to democratic ideals, but are simply seeking a temporary advantage, and are willing to kill in order to accomplish it.

What has happened time and time again is that democratic nations have made severe karma – and, quite frankly, none have made more severe karma in the democratic world than the United States – by supplying weapons to various groups that have no reverence for life. How long can a democratic government, a democratic form of government, survive if it loses reverence for life, if it sets aside reverence for life in order to achieve some temporary goal?

Why people are willing to kill each other

What is this willingness to kill in order to further some kind of end? It is, my beloved, a perversion of both the Divine Mother and the Divine Father. What you see is, of course, that the Mother is the physical realm. This is where things manifest as physical events. So what human beings do is that they look at the situation, as it is right now in the physical octave. Based on what they are experiencing right now, they define a goal. In many cases, there are unpleasant circumstances that cause them pain or other inconveniences, and they want to get away from the pain. Therefore, they formulate a goal based on the temporary circumstances they see right now. This is a perversion of the Mother because the Mother should be in complete alignment with the long-term, timeless goals of the Father. What is the long-term goal of the Father? It is that all human beings on earth are raised in consciousness.

It is not the long-term goal of the Father to establish an Islamic state that covers the entire world, nor is it the long-term goal of God to establish a Christian state that takes over the world. It is the long-term goal of the Father that any circumstance on earth serves the purpose that is the only purpose on earth, namely the raising of consciousness. This is the goal.

God does not have a specific physical outcome that is his supreme will. Throughout history, both religions and political philosophies have been used to come up with a definition that says: “This is the overall, supreme, absolute goal for what should or should not happen on earth.” This is the perversion of the Father where you take this idea of an absolute goal and you say: “The establishment of an Islamic State, of a Communist world, of a Christian nation, or even of democratic and free nations around the world is so important that it sets aside the reverence for life.” The Father’s overall, absolute goal for planet earth is that people are allowed to exercise their free will until they have had enough of a certain experience and say: “We want more.”

It is now possible to say, as many people have said over the centuries: “Well then, should we not allow people to do whatever they want without interfering?” This, my beloved, is exactly what you should do; you should not interfere with the internal affairs of a country or a group of people. Of course, in the present situation on earth, it is necessary for you to defend yourself against those other people interfering with you and your nation. Therefore, it is, unfortunately, necessary to have a certain form of defense. I am not saying that this is ultimately justified. I am saying it is necessary in order to prevent a greater calamity, but this is a double-edged sword. It is a very delicate balance, and that is exactly what I am seeking to point out.

You are not responsible for how people outplay their minds

It is not that we are sitting here as the ascended masters having a black-and-white judgment of the nations of the earth. There is, again, a long-standing tendency of wanting to have this black-and-white view where you can look at any situation and say: “This is right. This is wrong. Those people are wrong, and we are right. Because we are right, it is justified that we do what is needed to stop those who are wrong.”

My beloved, it is God’s will that free will on earth is allowed to outplay itself. There are certain times where you must stand by and watch while there is such fighting in a nation that it literally tears that nation apart. I know that you can come up with humanitarian concerns and say: “When does it become the international community’s responsibility to go in and stop, for example, the massacres and the torture you have seen in Syria and Iraq?” But you see, again, there are times when the international community must allow these events to outplay themselves, but they should do everything possible to stop the flow of arms into these nations.

This, of course, is not a simple issue. I am, again, not saying there is an easy solution. What I am saying is that there needs to be a raising of awareness where you recognize that the ends cannot justify the means. This means that, for a modern, democratic nation, it is necessary to recognize that when you have dedicated your nation to a peaceful resolution of conflict, you cannot go in and use force and violence in a nation or an area that has not reached your level of consciousness.

You must stop feeling responsible for those people who are still living in a medieval state of mind and have not yet outplayed it to the point where they have had enough of it and want more. This is the test that the modern nations are facing right now and will be facing potentially for one to two decades. Hopefully, they will rise above this test before it, but if they do not, you will see more and more of these man-made conflicts, problems, and atrocities that will seemingly defy any solution.

You see, my beloved, a perversion of the Mother is to be willing to kill in the name of some superior goal. This is one perversion of the Mother, but the other perversion of the Mother is where you take sympathy so far that you try to prevent any kind of suffering. Both of these perversions of the Mother spring from a failure to understand the absolute nature of the Law of Free Will. You do not, according to the Law of Free Will, have the right to forcefully stop other people from exercising their free will. The Omega aspect is that you are not responsible for mitigating or alleviating the suffering caused by people exercising their free will. This is a very difficult test that all of us who have ascended have had to face.

You cannot be indiscriminately compassionate

Jesus himself faced it because he did come to a state of consciousness, a level of Christ attainment, where he had the ability to heal the physical ailments of any person he encountered. There was not a single person among the tens of thousands of people that Jesus met during his three-year mission that he could not have healed. Jesus was many times moved by compassion of seeing the suffering of other people, wanting to alleviate that suffering by healing the person.

In the beginning of his mission, he did, in several instances, heal people out of pure compassion. It was only later – and again, I had some role in helping him see this – that he came to the realization that there were people who, regardless of how much they were suffering, needed to not be healed. Because only by experiencing the suffering, would they eventually come to the point where they had had enough of experiencing life through this filter of being a victim that is constantly suffering. Only then would they be willing to start taking responsibility for themselves, look at themselves and say: “What is it that I can change in myself?”

So many people who are suffering are constantly looking outside themselves for solutions or alleviation from their suffering. In a universe where free will reigns supreme, your suffering is never caused exclusively by other people. Now, be careful to use discernment here.

In a universe where free will reigns supreme, there are many times where you are not in control of the actions of other people, where they come in and use force against you. Nevertheless, what you need to ask yourself is: “What is it in my consciousness that caused me to be magnetized to this situation? There are people in the world who are not being forced by others. So why have I magnetized myself to a situation where I am being forced? What is it I need to learn from this situation? What is it I need to see in myself that is keeping me trapped in these reactionary patterns of reacting against others who are using force against me? What is it in me that is preventing me from being free to live without this oppression?”

What you must do in order to ascend

My beloved, how do you ascend? You ascend by realizing that the prince of this world cannot force you to stay in this world. The prince of this world cannot keep you out of the kingdom of the ascended state. How do you come to the point where the prince of this world has nothing in you? Only by being willing to look at yourself and ask yourself: “What is it that the prince in this world has in me that gives him an inroad into my consciousness, that makes me think there is something I cannot let go off? And precisely because I cannot let go of this, I am not free to ascend.”

You see, my beloved, those of you who have the potential to ascend after this lifetime need to look at the life of Jesus and his words. You need to look beyond what I have talked about earlier this year of feel-good spirituality and realize that Jesus’ form of spirituality was not radical, not extremist; it was simply realistic. Jesus was realistic in realizing that when it is your last embodiment and you are seeking to qualify for your ascension, you have to take some steps that will seem extremist to ordinary people in the feel-good consciousness. That is why he told you to forgive seventy times seven, to be willing to lose your life for the sake of following Christ, in other words, to be willing to give up any attachment to anything in this world in order to follow Christ. This is the only way that you can personally qualify for your ascension.

It is also the only way that the nations of the world, who are the more developed nations, can move out of the quagmire of seeking to solve man-made problems with man-made means. Do you not see that if the more developed democratic nations are to get out of this pattern of feeling that they have to react to everything that is going on in the Middle East and elsewhere, they have to ascend in consciousness? They have to ascend to a higher level where they are not pulled into any of these conflicts that are going on around the world. Otherwise, you will bind yourself to doing what the United States did with the invasion in Iraq, which I think has been generally recognized was a mistake. You cannot continue to do this because there are too many nations that are so far back that there is no way the democratic world has the means or the money to fight all of these battles.

What can you do? You can raise yourself, regardless of what others do. This is the step you can take when you personally are ready to go beyond what I have called feel-good spirituality where you think: “It’s all good.” What you do is that you look at the situation in the world, and then you look at your reaction to it, and then you make a very critical assessment.

As I said in the beginning, it is necessary for you to see what is going on in the world so that you know where to make your calls. This may also apply to your personal situation concerning the people you meet. You see that there are certain people that are trapped in a certain pattern. You make the calls for them to be cut free or be healed. You may take action in the form of talking to them about this but always by respecting their free will and not seeking to force their choices. If you find yourself being attached to producing a certain result in terms of changing other people, then you know here is the hook that the prince of this world is using to tie you to this world.

Internal spirits are formed and react in pairs

My beloved, let me give you a deeper teaching on how this works and why this is so critical. We have talked about many things over the years that can help you understand the patterns in yourself that keep you trapped, imprisoned in this world. We have talked about the ego. We have, in the last few years, talked about the creation of internal spirits. In previous dispensations, we talked about something called the dweller on the threshold, which can be seen as an internal spirit that is waiting on the threshold where you rise to a new level of awareness.

Before you can rise, you must deal with that dweller, with that spirit that seeks to keep you at the existing level. Until you see that dweller and resolve the belief that gives it a hook in your consciousness, you cannot rise. This is just another word for the internal spirits. What I would like to draw your attention to is that we have actually now given a higher teaching than the teaching on the dweller because the dweller was presented as if it was one being, one entity, one spirit. What we have said with the creation of internal spirits is that they are always created in pairs. This is an essential teaching to contemplate, and here is why.

Let us say that you observe your own reactions to certain other people or to what is going on in the world. Let us say, for example, to keep this impersonal, that you look at the Islamic extremists who are massacring people deliberately to instil terror. Let us say that you become very upset over this and you say: “This is absolutely wrong! Our government should send in troops or planes to stop this. These people should be killed because they obviously will not stop killing other people.” I am here deliberately not talking about the outer situation. I am only talking about your reaction. What I want you to see here is how this relates to the creation of spirits in pairs.

People are trapped between two spirits

There is a worldwide spirit that causes people to believe the ends can justify the means, and therefore it is justifiable that they use force in order to achieve an end. This is what you see with the people in Iraq. They have completely surrendered their free will to this worldwide spirit. They are feeding their energy into the spirit, and the energy released when they massacre and torture other people is also fed into the spirit. They feel a temporary sense of empowerment by doing what they are doing, but in the end, it depletes them of energy, and they end up feeling lower and lower.

Nevertheless, my point here is this: This is one spirit. It does not exist in isolation. It was created along with another spirit. The one spirit says it is okay to use force and to kill other people to achieve a goal. What does the opposite spirit say, my beloved? It says that the first spirit is wrong. The opposite spirit says that the people who are embodying the first spirit must be stopped even with force, if necessary.

Can you not see, or at least begin to see, how human beings on the individual level and even on the national level, even on the worldly level, have been trapped in the interplay between those two spirits? Some people have become completely blinded and overtaken by the first spirit, and then others have seen the atrocities committed by those people. They have felt the compassion of how wrong this is. I am not saying it is not wrong. But these people have then reacted by saying: “It is justifiable for us to kill those people who are doing what is wrong.” Can you not see that by doing this, by reacting this way, they simply opened themselves up so they are taken over by the opposite spirit of the first spirit? Now both sides in this conflict are feeding their energies into these spirits.

A pattern that you can apply to yourself

Now let me take this to a personal level, and let me make it personal to this messenger, who since 2009 has been exposed to a very direct attack on his person and character by certain people. In the beginning, he reacted exactly as most people do. He realized it was wrong what they were doing. He felt it was wrong, and he wanted it to stop. What he did not do was take action, forceful action, to stop it. He could have engaged in a fight against these people, trying to prove them wrong, but he was able to stop himself from doing this. But he was not able to stop himself from reacting to it, and this is the point that I want to bring out. What was it that caused his reaction? It was the opposite spirit of the spirit that was causing the other people to attack him.

My beloved, this is a pattern you can apply to yourself. Remember, your goal is: “I want to qualify for my ascension. In order to qualify for my ascension, I have to overcome all internal spirits in my being. In order to overcome an internal spirit, I have to see it. What is the most effective way to see my internal spirits? It is to see how I react to other people. If I am disturbed by other people doing something, if I am attached, if I go over this again and again, feeling these people should be stopped, these people should change, they should be made to see what they are doing, and I need to try to make them see this.” My beloved, whenever you see this reaction, this is your internal spirit that is reacting against the spirit you see in the other people.

One spirit can see the faults of its opposite

It has been said that it is so easy to see the faults of others. Jesus talked about seeing the splinter in the eyes of your brother but not seeing the beam in your own eye. Well, what you could actually say is that you are seeing the spirit in the eye of your brother, but you are not seeing the spirit in yourself. Why not?

The reason you see the spirit in your brother is that you are seeing through the perception filter of the spirit in yourself. Because you are seeing through the filter, you cannot see that it is a filter. Therefore, you cannot see the spirit, which can hide behind the filter. Do you not see, my beloved, how this works? Be willing to look at yourself. How many times have you been so good at seeing what other people are doing wrong? How many times have you found yourself come up with arguments: “They are doing this wrong. They shouldn’t be doing this. They should be made to see this, and they should be made to change.”

My beloved, when you approach other people from this state of mind that they should be made to see what they are doing, how many times have you been successful in changing them? Here is the reason why, as we have already given some teachings about, but I want to bring it up again. Why is it you cannot convince them that you are right?

It is because they are looking at the situation and their own behavior through the perception filter of their internal spirit. You are thinking that you are looking at it neutrally, that you have the right vision, that you are seeing reality, but you are not. You are looking at the situation through the perception filter of your spirit. Your spirit is not better than the other spirit. They were both created at the same time because they were created as a pair. The reason you can see the faults in the other people is precisely that there is no one who is better at seeing the fault in the opposite spirit than the spirit that you have.

When you have two spirits that were created as a pair, is it not logical that the one spirit can see all the faults in the other spirit and vice versa? You are looking at the situation through the perception filter of one spirit that sees all the faults in the spirit that the other person has. Of course, the other person is looking at the situation through the perception filter of that spirit and that spirit can see all the faults in your spirit and the arguments raised by your spirit. Will there ever be a meeting of the minds, my beloved?

No, because two opposing spirits can never meet. You never have, in the entire history of the universe, seen two opposing spirits who got together and said: “You know what? I think we got this all wrong. Let’s just sit down and agree.” This, my beloved, never happens. But two human beings can do this if each of them – each of them – is willing to transcend their internal spirit. If both transcend their spirit, then there can be a meeting of the minds of the people. Spirits will never meet, but people can because people are more than the spirits. This, my beloved, I trust you can see.

Don’t be attached to a certain outer result

What is it that you need to do? You need to look at your reaction and say: “What is my spirit?” And then you need to make the calls to me, to any ascended master who is close to your heart, to your Christ self, to your I AM Presence: “Show me the spirit!” Then, you need to decide honestly: “I want to see the spirit! Even if it causes me some temporary pain and embarrassment, I want to see the spirit because I want to move on.” Why do you want to move on? Because you are dedicated to life.

Do you remember Jesus said: “Let the dead bury their dead,” “Unless you partake of the body and blood of Christ, you have no life in you,” and “I am come that all might have life and that they might have it more abundantly.” What is life? Life is a process, my beloved.

Life is an ongoing process of the transcendence of consciousness. This is the Father’s supreme will—ongoing transcendence of consciousness through free will. That is why I said: “It is not God’s will that a specific physical result be achieved on earth.” Do you see that, in the process of life, there can be no absolute or final outcome? Any outcome is just a step in the ongoing process of self-transcendence. Therefore, life never stops. It is only the ego and the spirits who want to stop life. It is only they who want to focus on a result.

Do you not see that one spirit is created to achieve a specific result on earth, and the opposing spirit is created to prevent the manifestation of that choice? Therefore, they will never agree, and the people who are trapped by them will never make peace. You may have people who are attacking you. They may never change. They may stay trapped in that attacking spirit for the rest of this embodiment. But that is not your concern because the Law of Free Will is set up to make sure that they will receive what they are sending out. That same law will also make sure that you are receiving what you are sending out. If you are sending out something through a spirit that opposes the spirits of other people, then you are producing a force-based impulse and this will come back to you.

Transcending the reactionary pattern of internal spirits

What you need to do – if you want to ascend – is to stop sending out any force-based impulses. You need to stop sending out anything through the filter of these spirits, and therefore, you need to stop opposing anything. You are not here, my beloved, to oppose anyone or anything through force. You are not here to produce a specific physical result.

My beloved, this messenger recently had a discussion with a person who advocated the idea that you can instantly change your consciousness and then your problems will go away. This is part of what I call “feel-good spirituality.” Now, it is perfectly valid that you do need to change your consciousness. You do need to become more heart-centered. There is no question about it. But what I want to point out is that discouragement is the sharpest tool in the devil’s toolkit.

There are many, many people on earth who cannot instantly change their consciousness because, as this messenger pointed out, they have so much misqualified energy in their energy fields that it keeps pulling them into the old patterns. Unless they do the work to transmute that energy, they will not be free. Unless they do the work to look for the spirits that cause them to maintain self-destructive beliefs, they will not be free.

What happens is that when you come and say: “Oh, just change your consciousness. Be positive. Be heart-centered.” And then, people cannot do this, they feel: “Well, if other people can do it, and if these people are right, and this is all I need to do, there must be something wrong with me.” Then, they become discouraged, and they might give up on the Path, or they might simply continue, but still they feel inside that they are deficient.

This, my beloved, is another spirit. There is a spirit that says: “Oh you should be able to just walk away from everything and pretend like you never did anything wrong. You never misqualified any energy, and you don’t need to transmute it.” Then there is an opposite spirit that says: “If you can’t do this, there is something wrong with you, or there is something wrong with the path, or there is something wrong with this guru or that guru.”

You see, again, how these spirits are created deliberately to oppose each other so that if you are not trapped in the one spirit, you will be trapped in the other, and you will be damned if you do or damned if you don’t. My beloved, it is time to rise above this reactionary pattern, to look at these spirits and say: “Get thee behind me, Satan. I will have none of you in my being, neither this one or the opposing one or the third one and its opposing spirit and so on.”

Use the tools to free yourself and the world

It is time, and we have prepared you by giving you all the teachings and the tools we have given you, that you can make that step if you are willing. My beloved, we have, since 2002, released sufficient teachings and sufficient tools through this messenger that anyone who applies them with a willingness to change will experience lasting results.

I cannot guarantee you that, if you follow the outer teachings and use the tools, you will automatically make a shift in consciousness. What I can guarantee you is that if you apply the teachings and the tools, you will come to the point where there will be absolute minimum resistance to you making the necessary choice, the necessary shift in consciousness. You can suddenly see this menagerie of spirits and start saying: “Oh, I don’t want you anymore. And I don’t want the opposite one either. You are both gone from my being.” This, my beloved, is your personal potential to be free. It is also the best way you can help the overall situation on earth and help the more evolved nations transcend this same pattern of reacting against something else. Can you not see this happening again and again?

Logical questions about the situation in Ukraine

Look at the situation in Ukraine. The Russian-speaking people and the people in Russia have surrendered and are blinded by one spirit, but most people in Ukraine are blinded by another. They are opposing each other, instead of being able to find a different solution that transcends the old patterns. My beloved, as much as we do not encourage, in any way, that Russia interferes in Ukraine, it must also be stated why Ukraine has attracted this situation. It is, again, because there is not enough of a willingness to transcend the old.

It simply, my beloved, cannot be logical that a nation as large as Ukraine – with the potential it has, given its natural resources – cannot have a sustainable economy. This is not logical. It can only be because there is an elitist tendency where certain people are seeking to exploit the population. The population has been allowing this because they are not willing to take responsibility for themselves and for their nation. They are not willing to transcend, as I have talked about before and as we have talked about several times, the consciousness of the Soviet era, the consciousness of being oppressed by an outside force.

The downing of Flight MH-17 over Ukraine

My beloved, let me briefly comment on the event of the downing of the airliner in Ukraine. This should be an event that would shock everybody to realize that this entire situation needs to be reassessed and approached from a higher perspective.

How can it be that there is the availability of a weapon that can shoot down a plane flying so high in the sky that it could not – in any way, shape, or form – be a threat to the two factions in Ukraine? There is no way you can construe that this plane was seen as a military threat to someone on the ground and, as a defensive measure, they shot down this airplane flying at thirtythousand feet.

Therefore, you can only reason that someone deliberately shot down that plane, knowing what they were doing, that this was not a military aircraft, and therefore, it had to be a civilian aircraft. Now then, it needs to be asked why someone would do this? What is the state of mind of the people who did this, the people who supplied the weapons, and the people who supplied the experts and the training that allowed them to operate this fairly complex weapons system?

It also needs to be asked why certain forces in Ukraine would not allow the international community to come in and investigate the crash site and recover the bodies of the civilians who had been brutally and unnecessarily murdered. If you claim that it was the others who did this, why are you then resisting an international investigation to establish the cause? If you know you are not the cause, why would you resist the investigation? Why indeed, my beloved?

Be free from the illusory world of opposing spirits

I have given you more than enough in one installment, and I shall return at some future time to give you, perhaps, a more uplifting message. But then again, if you do not see this message as uplifting, I would submit to you that it is because you are experiencing this message through a particular spirit.

Truly, anything that comes from the ascended masters is an expression of realism, and realism is always uplifting. Reality sets you free from the illusory world of opposing spirits.

I am a Spirit, a free, ascended Spirit. There is no opposing spirit, for we of the ascended masters have no opposition, regardless of what certain spirits in the lower realms might claim. We are God-free Beings, and we have become God-free by transcending all opposing spirits.

This is the vision I hold for you, and I am willing to help you hold it for yourself. You only need ask. Mother Mary, I AM.

Michael Forrester – Mathematical Proof That Cooperative, Forgiving and Generous Populations Succeed In The Long-Term While Selfish Ones Fail

Prevent Disease .com

September 5, 2013 BY MICHAEL FORRESTER
War is the epitome of a selfish and power hungry mentality that destroys the true spirit of humanity. University of Pennsylvania biologists offer a mathematically based explanation for why cooperation, forgiveness, altruism and generosity succeed in the long-term benefit of populations where selfish and disharmonious intentions fail.

Their work builds upon the seminal findings of economist John Nash, who advanced the field of game theory in the 1950s, as well as those of computational biologist William Press and physicist-mathematician Freeman Dyson, who last year identified a new class of strategies for succeeding in the classical game theory match-up known as the “Prisoner’s Dilemma.”

Postdoctoral researcher Alexander J. Stewart and associate professor Joshua B. Plotkin, both of Penn’s Department of Biology in the School of Arts and Sciences, examined the outcome of the Prisoner’s Dilemma as played repeatedly by a large, evolving population of players. While other researchers have previously suggested that cooperative strategies can be successful in such a scenario, Stewart and Plotkin offer mathematical proof that the only strategies that succeed in the long term are generous ones. They report their findings in this week’s issue in PNAS.

Dr. David De Cremer of Maastricht University in the Netherlands and New York University in New York previously found that leaders can inspire cooperation in group members if they simply treat everyone fairly, and give group members a voice in decision making.

“These types of leader characteristics are able to influence people’s motives in such a way that they no longer care only about their self-interests, but also the goals of the group and the organization,” a transition that is crucial to the success of the entire group, de Cremer stated.

Understanding Why Cooperation and Generosity Win

“Ever since Darwin,” Plotkin said, “biologists have been puzzled about why there is so much apparent cooperation, and even flat-out generosity and altruism, in nature. The literature on game theory has worked to explain why generosity arises. Our paper provides such an explanation for why we see so much generosity in front of us.”

“Last year William Press and I proposed the ‘extortion strategy’ in the game of Prisoner’s Dilemma, enabling one player to maintain a dominant position over the other,” said Dyson, who is retired as a professor of physics at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Princeton, N.J. “One year later, Stewart and Plotkin turned our strategy upside down and showed that it enables one player to coax the other gently toward collaboration. They understood our strategy better than we did. They reached by rigorous mathematics the happy conclusion that, in a game between ruthless antagonists, generosity wins.”

The Prisoner’s Dilemma is a way of studying how individuals choose whether or not to cooperate. In the game, if both players cooperate, they both receive a payoff. If one cooperates and the other does not, the cooperating player receives the smallest possible payoff, and the defecting player the largest. If both players do not cooperate, they receive a payoff, but it is less than what they would gain if both had cooperated. In other words, it pays to cooperate, but it can pay even more to be selfish.

In the Iterated Prisoner’s Dilemma, two players repeatedly face off against one another and can employ different strategies to beat their opponent. In 2012, Press and Dyson “shocked the world of game theory,” Plotkin said, by identifying a group of strategies for playing this version of the game. They called this class of approaches “zero determinant” strategies because the score of one player is related linearly to the other. What’s more, they focused on a subset of zero determinant approaches they deemed to be extortion strategies. If a player employed an extortion strategy against an unwitting opponent, that player could force the opponent into receiving a lower score or payoff.

Stewart and Plotkin became intrigued with this finding, and last year wrote a commentary in PNAS about the Press and Dyson work. They began to explore a different approach to the Prisoner’s Dilemma. Instead of a head-to-head competition, they envisioned a population of players matching up against one another, as might occur in a human or animal society in nature. The most successful players would get to “reproduce” more, passing on their strategies to the next generation of players.

It quickly became clear to the Penn biologists that extortion strategies wouldn’t do well if played within a large, evolving population because an extortion strategy doesn’t succeed if played against itself.

“The fact that there are extortion strategies immediately suggests that, at the other end of the scale, there might also be generous strategies,” Stewart said. “You might think being generous would be a stupid thing to do, and it is if there are only two players in the game, but, if there are many players and they all play generously, they all benefit from each other’s generosity.”

In generous strategies, which are essentially the opposite of extortion strategies, players tend to cooperate with their opponents, but, if they don’t, they suffer more than their opponents do over the long term. “Forgiveness” is also a feature of these strategies. A player who encounters a defector may punish the defector a bit but after a time may cooperate with the defector again.

Selfish Strategies Never Succeed In Benefiting Long-Term Populations

Stewart noticed the first of these generous approaches among the zero determinant strategies that Press and Dyson had defined. After simulating how some generous strategies would fare in an evolving population, he and Plotkin crafted a mathematical proof showing that, not only can generous strategies succeed in the evolutionary version of the Prisoner’s Dilemma, in fact these are the only approaches that resist defectors over the long term.

“Our paper shows that no selfish strategies will succeed in evolution,” Plotkin said. “The only strategies that are evolutionarily robust are generous ones.”

The discovery, while abstract, helps explain the presence of generosity in nature, an inclination that can sometimes seem counter to the Darwinian notion of survival of the fittest.

A leader who uses his or her personality to instill people with a personal motivation to cooperate can be more successful than one who relies on so-called “extrinsic” motivations, such as denying them a promotion or raise if they don’t work for the group. In these situations, they are just motivated to get around all these negative things and once the penalties are lifted for not cooperating, people are often no longer inspired to do so.

“When people act generously they feel it is almost instinctual, and indeed a large literature in evolutionary psychology shows that people derive happiness from being generous,” Plotkin said. “It’s not just in humans. Of course social insects behave this way, but even bacteria and viruses share gene products and behave in ways that can’t be described as anything but generous.”

Previous Cooperative Experience is Key

A study by researchers at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid and Universidad de Zaragoza has determined that when deciding whether to cooperate with others, people do not act thinking in their own reward, as had been previously believed, but rather individuals are more influenced by their own mood at the time and by the number of individuals with whom they have cooperated before.

After analyzing the information, the main conclusion drawn by the researchers is that in a situation where cooperating with others is beneficial, the way the individuals involved are organized into one social structure or another is irrelevant. A first analysis contradicts what many researchers have held based on theoretical studies.

“A population that encourages cooperation does well,” Stewart said. “To maintain cooperation over the long term, it is best to be generous.”

Ruling out that network organization influences in the cooperation of people, and having discovered that what is important is reciprocity, that is, cooperating according to cooperation received, will radically change the focus of a significant number of researchers who are developing theories on the emergence of cooperation among individuals.

Sheldan Nidle Update – April 30, 2013 – Spiritual Hierarchy – Galactic Federation

 

SheldanSelamat Balik! We come again! Everywhere, your world is shifting quietly toward its divine transformation. Heaven continues to prepare for the sacred moment when a new reality is to be proclaimed, officially. Agartha is also preparing for this moment by reminding its numerous surface operatives to get ready to reveal publicly who they truly are. Our many liaison teams, as well, are preparing to disclose the work they are doing to bring your new reality into existence. We are also working with the many Ascended Masters to bring each of their secret sacred societies into public view. A unique moment is approaching when you will be able to learn how it was that your entire globe was able to switch so quickly into a new mode of local, regional, and national governance. This changeover will be followed swiftly by a series of special official announcements, and soon thereafter by the instigation of several unprecedented social services, helmed by these same sacred society spokespersons. These programs will be your first official glimpse of what is to come. A new reality is to be born which will include formal announcements about first contact and our benevolent presence.

 
   We are presently placing more liaison personnel on your world and they will be working closely with the Agarthans. It is important to bring out the fact that the geophysical constitution of your home world is actually far different than is believed by most of you. As you absorb these new facts and the accompanying new relationships they bring, the relevance to your lives of the activities of the sacred societies will become much clearer to you. Beginning to understand the makeup of your reality and the presence of the Agarthans can prepare you for what is to follow. We of the Galactic Federation are here primarily to get you ready for your return to full consciousness, and thus it is important that our introduction to your world be not only official but in conformation with the precepts of divine law. Your trust in us is paramount! Once we have your trust, we will be able to set the scene to prepare you on all levels for your three days of metamorphosis in your individual Light chambers. We possess many teaching modalities which will allow you to understand all aspects of what is involved in your return to full consciousness, and we are ready to go over everything with you, step by step, and to answer all of your questions and doubts.

 
   Your return to full consciousness is something that Heaven has mandated for you all. The surface population of Gaia has always been destined to return to this blessed state of Being as soon as your reality is given the green light to lift out of the present darkness. Your unusual state of limitation was only granted on a temporary basis after Atlantis sank and its fully conscious residents fled to the stars. The resulting rapid change in the energy makeup of the surface forced Mother Earth to alter her everyday reality. On top of this, the Anunnaki decided to take up residence in your solar system and negotiated with Heaven for a divine dispensation. This was granted, and a timetable and conditions were set up for the duration. You were then appointed by your Heavenly Administrators to be prototypes for limited consciousness with a view to then being capable of helping Anchara’s children at a future date to also achieve the same divine state of Being. This is how you began a long sojourn through the shadow lands and now it is coming to its predestined end.
 
   Your reemergence as fully conscious Beings provides a way for us to turn this immense galaxy to the Light. Your first tasks in this endeavor will be to arrange an ongoing liaison with the former star-nations of the Anchara Alliance as well as to use your good offices to help many fully conscious Beings, who are now Galactic Federation members, to interact harmoniously with one another. The goal here is eventually to produce a fully conscious realm which emits a most exquisite Light. As this new realm takes shape, you will shine and be most honored for accomplishing your grand and sacred task! Your home world will become a center for the movement that has already spread to over 50,000 galaxies?and this is just the beginning. You will be fêted and your accomplishments rejoiced in by both Heaven and physicality. Your name is to be proclaimed throughout physicality and your glorious history made known to every Being in service to the Light. Truly, you are about to catapult into the Light to create a most remarkable time for your new star-nation.
 
   Namaste! We are your Ascended Masters! We come with a blessed message of Love, Light, and Truth! Your realm is now moving away from the darkness that has gripped it for the last 13 millennia. During this time each of us passed successfully through the various trials and tribulations that brought us to the very portal of Ascension. Once we crossed this threshold we ascended into the realm of Heaven and into the absolute joy that is divine service. What is so exceptional is that Heaven has given each of you a divine dispensation, a holy means for achieving quickly and easily what took us so long to achieve: namely, your specially created Light chambers. This work of the Most Divine is to provide you with a unique path to Immortality. In this way you can return to physical Angelhood and your vital service to the divine plan. We bless you and cry Hosannas to the Highest for the Grace and Mercy that you have been shown.
 
   The moment has come when Heaven can lead you to a sacred, physical life full of joy, miracles, and blessings for each of you. We, too, prepare for our divine service, which is to explain the misjudgments that the dark foisted upon you those many millennia ago. The dispensation for your return to full consciousness is another indication of who you were truly created to be. Inside each of you sits the divine master appointed by the Supreme Creator to morally guide you in the holy truths of Heaven and Earth. This inner guidance was externalized by your need for an outside leader when you fell into limited consciousness and thus lost your connection to the Divine. Now the time comes for the resurrection within you of this sacred mentor. Some call it the Higher Self, while others refer to the I Am Presence. In either case, look within, blessed Hearts. What you will find is a master of Truth and integrity, who can provide you, day by day, with unerring guidance for all situations.
 
   The coming days will be marked by a series of unusual events which are to manifest your new realm. In these messages we have been providing you with the context to enable you to understand that what is to happen is not some sort of salvation but a natural progression of events prophesied to lead you to a new land filled with prosperity and Love! Too long you have dwelled in a world of falsehoods, suspicion, and alienation. Now a wholly opposite reality is to unfold before you! Do not be in disbelief or mistrust at receiving the basics of a natural life. Your freedom and personal sovereignty are divine gifts bestowed on you when you were first conceived. Be once more the blessed children who are open to receive their divine bounty, and be willing to help your fellows as this prosperity spreads across the world. Use your talents and your Love to create a new realm gifted to you by the Heavenly Hosts. A time of great joy has arrived!
 
   Today we talked about what is happening around your globe. We also reminded you that first contact is almost upon you. Each day we fly missions around your world which prepare us for the moment of our landings. As your inner Spirit advises you about full consciousness, so too do we remind you about what our mentoring is to provide. Know, dear Ones, that the countless Supply and never-ending Prosperity of Heaven are indeed Yours! So Be It! Selamat Gajun! Selamat Ja! (Sirian for Be One! and Be in Joy!)

Young Greeks Create Self-reliant Island Society

NTDTV·18,620 videos

On the slopes of Mount Telaithrion on the island of Evia, a group of young Greeks have left the busy city and created a self-reliant rural community.  Their goal is to eat only the organic produce they grow themselves, to free themselves from the national electricity grid, and to exchange what they grow or make instead of using money.   The project, whose ultimate goal is to create a school for sustainable living, was the idea of four Athenians who met online back in 2008 and bonded over their dissatisfaction with the daily grind of city life.

In their second year of living permanently on a forested patch of land next to the village of Aghios, 80 percent of the food they eat now comes from their two herb and vegetable gardens and the fruit they pick off the trees.  The group, almost all of whom follow a strict vegetarian diet, sleep communally in yurts – portable, tent-like dwellings made of tarp often seen in Central Asia.
Whatever is left over from their gardens, they exchange in the village for the supplies they cannot produce.

32-year-old co-founder Apostolos Sianos quit a well-paying job as a web site designer in Athens to help start the community, which is called ‘Free and Real.’   [Apostolos Sianos, Co-Founder of ‘Free and Real’]:   “The crisis or the austerity measures doesn’t actually affect you because you create your life and your future everyday, it has nothing to do with the outside circle. It may (have) affected us, but only in a good way because more and more people are willing to be self-sufficient and sustainable, so they contact us, and more and more people after the crisis want to get involved.”

The group actively use social media, and last year over one hundred people from Greece and abroad asked about joining or collaborating in some way.  Dionysis Papanikolaou, for example, gave up a lucrative academic career to be closer to nature and far from the heavy atmosphere of the financial crisis in Greece.  [Dionysis Papanikolaou, Group Member]:
“If you keep on reading news, watching TV and the crisis, the crisis, the crisis, even subconsciously you say the crisis!

Here, there is no crisis. I mean, it makes no difference.”  The group take pride in being self-sufficient.

Introduction to “The Code” – Foster Gamble

3rd Dimensional Shift

#rd Dimensional Shift

The Shift Is Up To Us

2

Waking Times

To address the media hype around Dec 21, 2012, it will be important for us to hold a positive energy and convey an optimistic message. We really don’t need to repeat the fear that Y2K created. To that end, we would like to emphasize that there is a shift occurring, but how that shift plays out is up to us. The emotions and intent we send out into the universe will either maintain or transform our frequency, and thus our vibration. Which earth would like to be a part of?

The galactic energies of 2012 are stronger than ever. They started to arrive almost three decades ago. It is a continuum of energy that we are in and it won’t just take place on Dec. 21, 2012. The decreasing magnetics of the planet, along with increased solar flares, have already been impacting our consciousness, global warming, and Earth changes. We have witnessed the dismantling of structures that no longer work such as Wall Street and the Berlin Wall.

From a spiritual perspective, this time is associated with the co-creation of New Earth which has been happening over the last several years. There will not be a marked delineation of Old World / New World on the planet, but rather a spectrum of energies. Some countries will carry more Old World energy and others will have more New Earth energy. Some will be more receptive to the infusion of light and some will remain in the dark. Within our cities there will be pockets of light; even within our neighbourhoods there will be folks of the Old World and those who carry the vibrational signature of this time onto 2013.

Within yourself, you will have parts, sub-personalities or archetypes that have ascended to the New Earth, and others which will live in Old World energies. Some aspects of yourself may still be influenced by the negative ego or resist transformation. These energies will co-exist within you, and for those on a spiritual path the balance will definitely favour the resonances of the New World. In this sense, the microcosm always mirrors the macrocosm. This is not an all-or-nothing event. We are in the process of being reborn as the Sacred Human as we acquire more light. The esoterics say a gradual transition from Homo Sapien to Homoluminescent will occur. It can only occur through a deeper intellegence and collective consciousness.

Collective Consciousness

Collective consciousness is a mode of awareness that emerges at the first transpersonal stage of consciousness, when our identities expand beyond our egos. A crucial capacity that accompanies this awareness is the ability to intuitively sense and work with the interactions between our and others’ energy fields, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. For example, just as Gene Rodenberry imagined a future where Star Trek’s Spock could “mind meld” with others, more of us are now becoming aware of our capacity not only to intuit each other’s thoughts and emotions, but also to consciously think and create together without communicating through our five senses.

Collective Psychosis

C. G. Jung, the great doctor of the soul and one of the most inspired psychologists of the twentieth century, had incredible insight into what is currently playing out, both individually and collectively, in our modern-day world. Jung never tired of warning that the greatest danger that faces humanity is to unwittingly fall into our unconscious en masse such that we become instruments for a psychic epidemic to wreak havoc in the world, just like we see today

Jung writes that psychic epidemics “… are infinitely more devastating than the worst of natural catastrophes. The supreme danger which threatens individuals as well as whole nations is a psychic danger.” We are in the midst of a collective psychosis that has become so normalized that very few people are even talking about it, which is itself an expression of our collective madness.

How things actually turn out depends upon how consciousness responds to the situation. During a collective manifestation of the unconscious, the great danger is a mass movement where millions, or even billions of people fall into their unconscious together, igniting a psychic epidemic which spawns an apocalyptic war that ravages life on earth and destroys the biosphere of the planet. To quote Jung, “the unconscious works sometimes with most amazing cunning, arranging certain fatal situations, fatal experiences, which make people wake up.” Catastrophe can only be avoided if enough people wake up to what is being revealed to us as we act out the unconscious, and then connect with each other so as to de-activate, assimilate, and transform the potentially deleterious effects of the activated daemon. We can then, under the guidance of the Self, our intrinsic wholeness, help each other to usher in a new era of sustainable peace, understanding and mutual co-operation. Our very continued existence as a species on this beautiful planet depends upon this realization.

Blessings in Drag

When we become taken over by the unconscious, to quote Jung, “… the unconscious in large measure ousts and supplants the function of the conscious mind. The unconscious usurps the reality function and substitutes its own reality. Unconscious thoughts…manifest themselves in senseless, unshakable judgments upheld in the face of reality.” When we find ourselves ignoring factual evidence and holding a “magical” belief that we rationally know not to be true, we are under a spell, being “driven” by the unconscious, which is at that point in the driver’s seat. The psychic factors which make possession possible are suggestibility, lack of critical discernment, unwillingness or inability to self-reflect, fearfulness, propensity to superstition and prejudice. The contents that take us over when we are possessed by the unconscious appear as phobias, exaggerated affects, peculiar convictions, idiosyncrasies, stubborn plans, compulsions and obsessions, all of which are not open for discussion or correction.

We must realize that every moment of our experience is inseparable from our own consciousness, which is to recognize the fluid, non-objective and thus, “dreamlike nature” of reality. Just like figures in a dream, the way we observe the world literally evokes the very world we are observing. This means that it is through our awareness itself that we can intervene in the underlying matrix of creation and find the leverage point where we can change the waking dream we are having, which is “evolution-in-action.” Interestingly, we wouldn’t have woken up and had this realization without the antagonistic co-operation of other forces that are secretly allies in disguise, catalysts of consciousness appearing as adversaries, blessings in drag.

Duality to Oneness

As we connect to higher realms of consciousness, we move beyond the existence of a polarized world where things are only black or white, good or evil, and instead we experience a continuum of energies. To transcend our duality, we need to move to a state of unconditional love and non-judgment of our self and others. For our planet, we will overcome duality with the archetypal blending of the Divine Feminine and Sacred Masculine.

Karma and Ego

When we are living in higher dimensional energies, the law of cause-and-effect or karma takes a back seat to the law of attraction. The magical process of synchronicity guides the art of co-creation and manifestation. If we are creating from a conscious, enlightened part then our results will be magical, and without the burden of unfinished business and painful lessons. We are learning how to manifest from light, love and joy.

If we are creating from an unconscious part, then karmic lessons and transforming shadow will be involved. Due to our wounding and the resistance of the negative ego, our lessons may be challenging and painful. But there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Once we transform our darkness, that aspect moves into light.

We are not trying to kill or annihilate the ego. The ego should be the willing servant of our soul. We want to be soul-guided as opposed to ego driven. The egoic selves are transformed through the process of love, pain and suffering. Love moves us beyond narcissistic self-absorption. The higher purpose of suffering that coincides with difficult lessons is the transmutation of the ego. With the loss of the egoic selves comes a void and emptiness. Replenish this void with the higher octave emotions such as love, gratitude, joy, and energies currently present as we approach 2013.

Descending Heavenly Energies

The current alignment we are experiencing through the process of transformation enables us to bring more sacred, heavenly energies to Earth. They move down to us, allowing us to connect more consistently with Source energy. We don’t need to die and “go up” to experience facets of heaven on Earth.

We are meant to rejoice in these divine vibrations, celebrate the rebirth of Paradise within, and create beauty and harmony in our lives. Let’s remember this is not a polarized experience, but one that lies on an array of frequencies. We will still have bad days. We can slide up and down this spectrum based on what level of consciousness we are coming from.

As messengers of these energies, we don’t need to convert others, but through role modelling, a ripple effect will occur. Those who are ready but not there yet will be magnetized to this higher energy through the law of attraction and synchronicity. These are indeed exciting times to be living and at times they are tumultuous. Remember, this event only happens every 26,000 years. Aren’t you glad you showed up for it!

In conclusion, then, it is of the highest importance for our individual and collective flourishing to appreciate the importance of global consciousness and spirituality in opening deeper access to our encounter with Reality. There is more to Reality than any one cultural, religious or disciplinary narrative. And awakening the global lens, the global heart and mind has been a perennial concern of our great spiritual traditions through the ages. Our future now depends on making this shift together.
