We must follow the Laws of Nature.
There is no other route to Heaven.
First apologies that it is taking me longer to complete these posts than I expected – my summer is turning out to be quite busy and I am trying to do Mike’s book before the blog. I find it works better that way. I spend a lot of time writing the same ole same ole same ole same ole, but then I sit down to enter it into Mike’s book and my words change completely (that’s why there are so many crossings out and little arrows for inserts). The pictures and articles certainly help to edit my words, but mostly I find I scrap all my waffle and strive to get to the heart of the matter – the kernel of truth – that can give him understanding, comfort and courage if I am not there with him at the End/Purification Time. That sounds dire, but it’s not, it’s insurance. Right now he’s outside on this beautiful sunny morning watering the garden, tending our vegetables, oblivious that anything may change. On mornings like this I too think it will last forever. But I know better. I’ve told him this story, but I don’t know how much he remembers, or cares to remember. When life is good we become complacent, thinking it will never change. But change is integral to life, essential to development. Life is transformative, biologically, psychologically – and at an evolutionary level. That is what this story is all about – the developmental cycle of all humanity. And we are not done, not yet fully cooked, we have one last step to take, one last change to make and we are blessed. All we need to do is sit tight, have faith and allow our loving mother Earth to take us to our final destination.
Quoting Earth Mother Our Womb of Life:
One of the greatest truths, passed to us by indigenous peoples, is the knowledge that our Earth is a great living being. Our modern world tends to see the Earth as dead, inert matter; while native peoples perceive a life and consciousness in the Earth, and beyond, that most of the world has forgotten.
The universe is alive. It is a living universe whose life and awareness ensouls every star and world. Within our universe, life is nested together from largest to smallest, life within life— the universe is alive, so our Galaxies are alive, so our solar systems are alive, and so our Earth is also a living, conscious entity from whom we receive our own life. Life cannot be supported by something that is dead; if our Earth was dead, we would not have life.
Science currently explains the formation of our solar system – the planets, moons and life on Earth – as the result of random cosmic events: planetary collisions, meteor strikes, mass extinction events and mutations in DNA – all arbitrary, unrelated and violent. Always violent.
Our Wild Wild Solar System, National Geographic July 2013
The July 2013 issue of the National Geographic (see left) exemplifies this assumption in its article It All Began in Chaos. And yet among it claims of “extreme violence, heavy bombardment, epic mayhem and gravitational instability” is a very interesting discovery – planetary migration!
“Who would have thought the giant planets might move, that the entire layout of the solar system could change?” says Alan Stern of the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado. But it took new telescope surveys to reveal them.“
It was once believed that the solar system formed as it is now and then remained constant:
“In practice no one saw evidence that planetary orbits had ever changed. So the clockwork solar system stuck with us—enduringly stable.” But … ” “Once the Plutinos were discovered, it was a slam dunk,” she [Renu Malhotra, chair of the theoretical astrophysics program at the University of Arizona] says. “Planet migration practically became a textbook idea.”
The article doesn’t say a system is at work. But that’s not surprising. Our scientific history shows that this is common. We see formlessness in Nature, until we recognise form. We see chaos, until we recognise order – this seems to be our default mode. That is until our technology improves. As the National Geographic article says, planetary migration was only discovered because: “It took new telescope surveys to reveal them.”
There is a wonderful article on NASA website space.com. about Nicolaus Copernicus that illustrates this point. Here’s an extract:
“In Copernicus’ lifetime, most believed that Earth held its place at the center of the universe. The sun, the stars, and all of the planets revolved around it. One of the glaring mathematical problems with this model was that the planets, on occasion, would travel backward across the sky over several nights of observation. Astronomers called this retrograde motion. To account for it, the current model, based on the Greek astronomer and mathematician Ptolemy’s view, incorporated a number of circles within circles — epicycles — inside of a planet’s path. Some planets required as many as seven circles, creating a cumbersome model many felt was too complicated to have naturally occurred.
The Copernican Planisphere – showing the planets orbiting the Sun for the first time.
Illustrated in 1661 by Andreas Cellarius.
In 1514, Copernicus distributed a handwritten book to his friends that set out his view of the universe. In it, he proposed that the center of the universe was not Earth, but that the sun lay near it. He also suggested that Earth’s rotation accounted for the rise and setting of the sun, the movement of the stars, and that the cycle of seasons was caused by Earth’s revolutions around it. Finally, he (correctly) proposed that Earth’s motion through space caused the retrograde motion of the planets across the night sky (planets sometimes move in the same directions as stars, slowly across the sky from night to night, but sometimes they move in the opposite, or retrograde, direction).
It wasn’t until he lay on his deathbed at the age of 70 that Copernicus published his book, De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium (“On the Revolutions of the Heavenly Spheres”). In it, Copernicus established that the planets orbited the sun rather than the Earth. He lay out his model of the solar system and the path of the planets.” ~ NASA
Even though Copernicus’ model made greater sense, it took more than hundred years before it was accepted scientifically. And that only happened because one of the best and most respected minds of the day – Galileo Galilei built a telescope strong enough to provide empirical evidence in support of Copernicus. Even then the notion was only accepted after Galileo’s death.
Our Earth as alive and we are Her children. Our evolution (and the evolution of all life) from our raw material to our final forms, follows a specific cycle of growth. Evolution isn’t chaotic or random, because nature doesn’t develop life that way. All life develops in systems.
Our Evolutionary Cycle
Perhaps the greatest difference between native and other
religions is this: we believe in God and evolution. We
believe God’s greatest work is through evolution. God
is the divine artist; evolution is the divine art. Evolution
is God’s Kiln, and man is still in the making.
(Native American Priest)
Systems Thinking (extract from Wikipedia)
The explanations given in this blog are in line with “systems thinking”. Quoting from Wikipedia’s entry on systems thinking:
“Systems thinking is the process of understanding how things regarded as systems, influence one another within a whole… Systems thinking is not one thing but a set of habits or practices within a framework that is based on the belief that the component parts of a system can best be understood in the context of relationships with each other and with other systems, rather than in isolation.”
Throughout the blog I explain how the system works and provide supporting evidence. But there is a very easy way to determine the truth of the explanation – if the predictions come true. What is being proposed is a living system and within all living systems there are periods of transformation. So if the predicted changes arise – this surely gives support to the explanation.
And that is exactly what is happening. Quoting from the book:
Our Earth Mother is now in labor. The increasingly severe weather and geological disturbances are more than what most scientists believe; they are birth pangs originating from deep within the heart of the Earth. The Earth is laboring to birth what some native peoples have referred to as Her Egg (Her Core), which will emerge from the Earth’s birth canal in an Antarctic sea.
I’ve written about the warming of the deep waters of the Weddell Sea.
And I’ve written about the increase in earthquakes and other geological disturbances. The severity and occurrence of earthquakes are increasing, but so often I read articles that dismiss their significance, saying things like:
- “The earthquakes have always been this strong, we just didn’t have the technology to record them.”
- “There are more people in the world now, so the disasters seem greater, because more people are affected.”
- “With social networking sites like Twitter we hear about disasters we never heard about before.”
“I think people have become very jaded and desensitized to news about earthquakes, to the point that anything under 8 is regarded as inconsequential.” (post in ATS Forum)
We must be careful and not fall into a trap of ‘disregarding what we don’t want to hear’.
Between 1939 – 1976 (38 years) there are 71 earthquakes of on/over magnitude 7.
Between 1977 – 2011 (35 years) there are 164 earthquakes of on/over magnitude 7.
If you put a frog in boiling water it will jump out.
If you put a frog in cold water and turn up the heat, it will not jump out, even when the water boils.
Are we like the frog in denial of hot water?!!
It is very interesting to note that the changes we are experiencing on Earth – climactic instability and geological upheavals – are also happening on the other planets in our Solar System. This agrees with the explanation laid out in the book, which says that all of the planets eject their Cores and move an orbit closer to the Sun simultaneously. This is how evolution works – every planet is a Mother evolving Her children step by step from the outer orbit of the Solar System towards the Sun.
God’s Evolutionary Process: The Sacred Path of Planetary Migration – The first line shows the Solar System as we know it now, with all the planets orbiting in set paths around the Sun. The second line shows the coming Purification Time (or ‘punctuation’ in equilibrium) when the planets eject their cores (to become moons) and then the planets (which are now lighter in mass) are gravitationally pulled one orbit closer to the Sun. During each Purification, the planet and moon in the first 2 orbits enter the Sun to create energy. The third line shows the planets returning to a state of ‘equilibrium’ where life once again returns to the planet – but as the planet is one orbit closer to the Sun, it is exposed to more heat and energy. This enables the jumps in biological improvement we see in our fossil record.
If you want to read more about the changes on other planets, then please have a look through the articles linked below:
You may not have heard about the dramatic changes throughout our Solar System because it’s a controversial idea.
Quoting from Sun Blamed for Warming of Earth and Other Worlds (LiveScience 2007):
“Earth is heating up lately, but so are Mars, Pluto and other worlds in our solar system, leading some scientists to speculate that a change in the sun’s activity is the common thread linking all these baking events. Others argue that such claims are misleading and create the false impression that rapid global warming, as Earth is experiencing, is a natural phenomenon.”
The last sentence makes an important point – changes on the other planets in our Solar System goes against the man-made climate change model for Earth. And there are many people who do not want to hear that. Perhaps they think it is a way of dismissing the enormity of the changes here on Earth. But questioning ‘man’s’ involvement, does not mean denying that the world is changing – it means that changes are beyond man’s influence.
Though the title of the article above says ‘Sun blamed for warming of Earth‘, the content of the article dismisses the sun’s activity as being the cause:
“The radiation output of the Sun does fluctuate over the course of its 11-year solar cycle. But the change is only about one-tenth of 1 percent—not substantial enough to affect Earth’s climate in dramatic ways, and certainly not enough to be the sole culprit of our planet’s current warming trend, scientists say.
“The small measured changes in solar output and variations from one decade to the next are only on the order of a fraction of a percent, and if you do the calculations not even large enough to really provide a detectable signal in the surface temperature record,” said Penn State meteorologist Michael Mann.”
The Sun is therefore dismissed as the cause of global warming on Earth and the other planets in our Solar System. So why are most of the planets experiencing the same changes?
“Global warming on Neptune’s moon Triton as well as Jupiter and Pluto, and now Mars has some [scientists] scratching their heads over what could possibly be in common with the warming of all these planets … Could there be something in common with all the planets in our solar system that might cause them all to warm at the same time?”
Benny Peiser [social anthropologist at Liverpool John Moores University, who monitors studies and news reports of asteroids, global warming and other potentially apocalyptic topics] included quotes from recent news articles that take up other aspects of the idea.
“I think it is an intriguing coincidence that warming trends have been observed on a number of very diverse planetary bodies in our solar system,” Peiser said in an email interview. “Perhaps this is just a fluke.”
It is not a fluke. We are part of a larger system – a living system. And like in all living systems – things change.
Hopi Elders Statement
But it is not a time to be afraid. No more than a caterpillar should be afraid of becoming a butterfly. There is a beautiful quote from the Hopi Elders Statement which reads:
There is a river flowing now very fast
It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid
They will try to hold onto the shore
They will feel they are being torn apart
And they will suffer greatly.
Know that the river has its destination.
The elders say we must let go of the shore,
Push off into the river,
Keep our eyes open,
And our heads above water.
Look around, see who is in there with you and celebrate.
I say that scientists assume that the cosmos is left-over debris from the Big Bang, but that’s not entirely true. Scientists are uncovering complex forms in the universe and some are beginning to question if it makes sense – if there is structure. The video below from astrophysicist and Nobel prize winner George Smoot shows stunning images from deep-space surveys, and “prods us to ponder how the cosmos — with its giant webs of dark matter and mysterious gaping voids — got built this way”.
Quoting from the book:
We cannot change the natural order of creation according to how we choose to believe. There is only one road that takes us to our promised place, and that road has always been with our Mother Earth, and the calendar Time God has provided us with Her. Nature operates as it has been made, its purposeful cycles all arriving in their appointed times. Whether we know it, or not, we are all being carried within its purposeful scheme.
