All Is Well in the Land of Goshen

Thank you for sharing this. I have often thought, rather sadly, that massive long term disasters would be required to knock loose the programming of colonization and allow people to reconnect to one another and their/our inner life, to return to Earth honoring lifestyles and stop the juggernaut toward mass extinction. Some days lately I feel like it won’t require that, others I feel like it’s ok if it does or not because we will be ok either way. I’ve been feeling heart-heavy today after encountering racism from a person I respect and your post really helped me place that but of colonized programming in perspective. If we are to survive as a species all those unkind old patterns will have to fall away.

Laura Bruno's Blog

Several people have already contacted me, very concerned about how we’re doing in Goshen after 60 tornadoes plowed through Illinois and Indiana today. Thanks for your concern. We’re doing well here. I always tell people I cut deals with the Nature Spirits, and I’m really not kidding. Thor is the God of Thunder, associated with the THORN Rune of protection. I mentally draw that Rune all over our property every time I hear of or sense any sort of major storm. Synchronously, just as I sat down to post this announcement, Yahoo news flashed some story across my screen about THOR the movie. Yes, thunder and lightning and wind were very active today! But not so much right here.

I talk to the Nature Spirits like I talk to the bees who get mad at me for interrupting their meal while watering my bee friendly flowers: “Hey, don’t sting me…

Ben Fulford Answers Some Readers Questions November 17, 2013

Benjamin Fulford Responds To Readers Questions – November 17, 2013

http://benjaminfulford.typepad.com/benjaminfulford/2013/11/fw-believable.htm
l

Posted: 17 Nov 2013 12:57 PM PST

Ben:

A few questions:
1. re:
The White Dragon Society promises to take care of the French Rothschild
faction if they cooperate with the new financial system and take care of
them if they do not. The same thing goes for the Israelis and the Saudis.
What is meant by “take care of”? Is that literally or do you mean to
eliminate them, as in the mafia “take care of…”?
2. re:
Last week a representative of a hitherto unknown (to me) foundation claiming
to have Â69 digits worth of dollar assets contacted this writer (through a
call to my mobile), offering to contribute to the White Dragon Foundation.
If you go with the current mainstream calculation that world GDP is about
$100 trillion, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gross_world_product then this
number would be 54 digits more than World GDP. That beats the previous
personal record financial number shown to me by the P2 lodge that only had
46 more digits than world GDP. She also said Âdigital movement of Gold [sic]
is happening now, and has been for quite some time.Â

a. If someone has this kind of money, why do they need to contact Benjamin
Fulford to make a contribution to the WDS?

b. A “personal record financial number” means what? That this is the
amount of money possessed by one person in the P2?
c. Why do you accept this extraordinary amount of money as even possible?
“Dollar assets” means actual paper money, correct? Where on earth would
such an volume of bills be stored?
d. Really, anyone with this much wealth doesn’t need to make a contribution
to any project. They can carry out any project they want without the WDS.

3. As the national blackout and the presence of Chinese troops on US soil
did not happen, how do you account for the inaccuracy of this news which you
considered believable enough to report
and
why do you think it did not happen?

4. Your earlier descriptions of the WDS said that they were made up of old
Asian families who wanted their gold back; but later you said the WDS is a
western group who wants to stop world hunger, end environmental destruction
and distribute wealth among humanity.

Your reports make the WDS out to be some monolithic group with such great
power that the cabal is running in fear of it or doing all it can to slow
its inevitable takeover of the wealth of the world and reverse the terrible
results of the cabal’s rape of the planet and its living beings.

Can you explain who the leaders are of the WDS, their positions in society,
what real power – economic, political and military – they possess – and,
perhaps most vitally,
why they are so cohesive and unified that they appear to be almost a council
of god-like elders?
Are they made up of the monotheists you say want to only help the planet and
humanity rather than behave as monotheists and convert the world and claim
its wealth for God?

You see, we know the cabal, whether a Jesuit operation or a Zionist plot,
has been building its pyramid of power and extending its tentacles into
governments and societies and corporations while accumulating immense wealth
for centuries.

How is it that a WDS can appear on the scene and have the organization, the
philosophical unanimity, and the connections and faithful following
throughout the world, not to mention the wealth and the blackmailing
leverage, sufficient to counter the Jesuit/Zionists cabal – which, as we
suspect, possesses the super technologies to destroy continents, murder with
invisible rays, and control the minds of perhaps entire populations as well
as of any individual they select?
Bottom line:

I am finding it difficult to believe the WDS is what your reports imply it
is.
Cheers,

D

Answer from Benjamin Fulford

1: The phrase “take care of,” was deliberately meant to be vague.

2a: Perhaps they think the White Dragon Society has the best plan for the
future of this planet and its living beings.
b: “A personal record” means it is the highest number I have been shown by
any of the groups who have lived above the public financial system. The P2
Freemason lodge showed me the picture of a bond with 46 digits, that is to
say 33 more than world GDP and that was the previous record.
c: The money would only have meaning if delivered in the form of goods and
services and environmental protection efforts. My belief is that $700
trillion, or $10,000 for each man woman and child on earth, delivered in the
form of goods and services, would be enough to trigger the start of the
golden age.
d: The money is frozen due to a deadlock at the top of the financial system.
We are trying to break that deadlock.

3: The national black out exercise took place as scheduled but it was just a
training exercise although there were temporary sporadic black outs as part
of it.

4: The WDS speaks through actions, not words. The formal name of the White
Dragon is ????? or the Dragon God King of the White Waterfall. It is pure
undiluted energy of the universe.

Believe it when you see it.

Today’s photo: Comet ISON as seen from Kahler Asten, Germany onNovember 16, 2013 (photo by Waldemar Skorupa, posted onSpaceWeather.com)

COMET ISON has just increased its brightness tenfold after an unexplained “outburst” on November 13 and 14. It is now bright enough and close enough to Earth to be seen by the naked eye.
And, for those with telescopes, there is a rare “comet bonanza” occurring right now, with four individual comets being visible in the pre-dawn sky: ISON, Lovejoy, 2P/Encke, and LINEAR (C/2012 X1).
Comets are some of the “wild cards” in astrological interpretation. They do not follow the same rules as the traditional planets and asteroids we use in everyday astrology. Because of this, we can consider comets to represent ways and times in which we are supported in “breaking the rules” — breaking free from the karmic patterns and restrictions that have formed our lives (and perhaps lifetimes) until now.
ASTRONOMERS believe that comets come from one of two places, either the Kuiper Belt, which is beyond Neptune, or the Oort Cloud, which theoretically lies beyond Pluto. The Oort Cloud is thought to be about one light year from the Sun, but has not yet been proven to exist. It is from this hypothetical Oort Cloud that Comet ISON is said to originate.
Using those characteristics, we can also surmise that all comets represents ways and times in which we can receive new information and insights, that some might judge as being “far out.” In particular, with comets from the Oort Cloud, we are receiving information from sources that are not yet proven or that seem “other worldly,” but that clearly have effect on us.
Considering that those Oort Cloud comets come from distant reaches of space, we can also think of them in as coming from our “future,” since their light would usually take at least one year to reach us on Earth. In that sense, Comet ISON’s arrival in our space may represent opportunities to integrate aspects of our future selves.
WE HAVE OTHER clues as to the purposes of Comet ISON. We’ve talked a lot in recent months about the ongoing Pluto-Uranus square and its effects and challenges. This square (in effect from 2012 to 2015) is actually the first testing point in a cycle that began in the mid-1960s, when Pluto and Uranus were aligned and many social and political changes were initiated.
That is why my jaw dropped a bit when I read this on thecometinformer.com website this morning:
“The orbital similarity between ISON and the Great Comet of 1965 suggests that the two comets could have actually broken off from the same parent body.”
The synchronization of the two timeframes is pretty compelling. September-October 1965, which is when “the Great Comet” was visible from Earth, was also when Uranus and Pluto were exactly aligned, in middle degrees of Virgo. And, Comet ISON is now traveling through the constellation of Virgo, as seen from Earth.
WE CAN CONSIDER this time, these last two to three months of 2013, to be pivotal in many ways. This is the time for greater insight into the changes that are taking place in our personal and collective lives. It is time for us to call upon our knowing of cosmic truths, whether or not we can explain them or pinpoint their origins.
It is also time to call upon our self of the future to be integrated into our self of the Now. That future self may be healed in some way, may be more enlightened, may be more courageous or more loving, or more ___________ (fill in the blank). This timeframe, these comets, this Pluto-Uranus square — they are all conspiring to help us break free from the limitations and definitions of the past that continue to affect our present, and we can use their energies with those intentions in mind.
I’m sure there are many meditations out there that utilize the imagery of calling one’s future self into the present. If you know of a good one, please send me an email and I’ll consider putting it on my blog. I also wrote a simple visualization and posted it to my blog this morning, if you are interested. (See “On comets and futures”.)
LOOKING at the planetary aspects for the week, we find that the planets in our solar system are also supporting this healing work and alignment with our higher selves. Mercury aligns with the North Node on Monday, bringing into consciousness some truths about our purposes here on planet Earth and helping us let go of the mindsets that have held us back.
Chiron, the Wounded Healer, stations direct (starts moving forward) on Tuesday, completing its retrograde (backward motion) phase that started in mid-June. As always, a planet that is changing direction imprints its energies more fully on our awareness, due to its proximity to Earth and its slowed motion.
This increase in Chiron’s influence emphasizes the healing possible now. In particular, Chiron in Pisces is showing us how we have limited our progress by trying to do everything on our own, and by trying to control outcomes. The healing of the Pisces wound results in a greater trust in the unseen support that weaves through our lives, and a more open heart through conscious application of compassion and acceptance.
THE WAVE of positive energy continues on Wednesday, when Chiron and Pluto form supportive aspects with Mercury. These aspects encourage us in our expanding awareness of the meanings and purposes of events in our daily lives.
And, on Thursday, the Sun enters Sagittarius for its yearly visit. Sagittarius is know for its enthusiasm, humor, generosity and optimism — and these traits are more available to all of us while the Sun traverses the sign, from November 21 through December 21.
Blessings,

Pam

Anon is the southern Baptist convention of our era. What this guy did out of conscience knowing the penalty he could face is heroic. I pray for him and all our heroes whether hacktivists protestetd monkeywrenchers or other kinds of activists. All of them are taking risks and suffering on behalf of every one of us.we owe it to them to stand up for what is right in legal ways at the very least. Thank you very much Ann for posting this!

Daily Kos :: Pope Francis: “Thou shalt not frack!”

This is very worth reading and there is more useful stuff in the comments section at the link below. I am very impressed with how knowledgable the commenters in Daily Kos are-info links and videos are posted at the link below the article.

Pope Francis: “Thou shalt not frack!”
by citisven Nov 15, 2013 10:40am PST

Pope Francis holding up anti-fracking t-shirts following a meeting with a group of Argentinian environmental activists to discuss water and fracking issues. The shirts read “No To Fracking” and “Water Is More Precious Than Gold.”

Meet the Newest Anti-Fracking Activist: Pope Francis.

I haven’t seen this covered prominently here, but thought it’s worth a mention when the guy with a direct line to 1.2 billion people’s ears says that it’s not cool to frack. This week theTwitterverse went ablazewhen Pope Francis met with Argentine filmmaker Fernando “Pino” Solanas (La Guerra del Fracking — The Fracking War) and environmental activist Juan Pablo Olsson at the Vatican to discuss fracking and water pollution. Olsson posted the photo of himself, Solanas and Pope Francis.

Next Up For Pope Francis: Anti-Fracking Activist?

Finally, a logical pope. If your belief tells you that God gave us the Earth to be stewards of, then injecting millions of gallons of water and chemicals into the ground to fracture massive rocks for their extra oil and gas and in the process threatening the air we breathe, the water we drink, the communities we love and the climate on which we all depend, seems like a really bad idea.

For a pope who has demonstrated that he is able and willing to connect some serious dots by coming out against poverty,inequality, and bigotry, stepping into the environmental arena is the next logical move. After all, it is the poor and underprivileged who have not only been taking the brunt of industrial pollution and environmental degradation that comes with the fossil fueled life but are also at the forefront of suffering the consequences of climate change. He reportedly told the group he “is preparing an encyclicalabout nature, humans, and environmental pollution.”

I’m really digging on Francis who is actually living up to his name as the patron saint of the poor. What I didn’t know is that St. Francis was named the patron saint of ecology by John Paul II in 1979, because of his theological connection to poverty.

“It is my hope that the inspiration of Saint Francis will help us to keep ever alive a sense of ‘fraternity’ with all those good and beautiful things which Almighty God has created,” Pope John Paul II later explained. “And may he remind us of our serious obligation to respect and watch over them with care, in light of that greater and higher fraternity that exists within the human family.”

And, of course, simply bypissing off Sarah Palin you know you’re moving humanity in the right direction.

According to one report of the meeting, His Holiness’s concern was “clear” when hearing about the Chevron deal in Argentina and other environmental disputes in the region. On Tuesday, Sarah Palin said she was shocked by the pontiff’s “liberal” statements. Wait ’til she hears about his new role as the face of Argentina’s environmentalist movement.

What I’m thinking is why stop here? What if Francis became known as the Solar Pope? Advocating for Creation Windows andHeavenly Energy, like his Lutheran brother, Pastor Peter Hasenbrink, whose church in Schönau Germany has 431 solar modules on its rooftops, generating more than 40,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity each year, enough for eight churches of its size.

Pastor Hasenbrink & Bergkirche

Follow me below the fold for a few statements from my interview with Pastor Hasenbrink about tying Christian theology into environmental action. Lutherans in Germany have long been on board with theEnergiewende, but their Catholic brothers and sisters are starting to get into it too. So this is some of the “theosolar” language Francis could use.

“God has put a lot of love into this creation,” Hasenbrink says, explaining what he considers the natural affinity between faith and environmental stewardship. “When you look around, you can only be in awe of how well-conceived everything is, and we humans are called upon to not only be beneficiaries but to intelligently and responsibly sustain this creation.”

Bergkirche

In his sermons, Hasenbrink would point to the importance of combining inner and outer work, citing St. Paul’s letters in Romans 8—“For the creation is eagerly awaiting the revelation of God’s children”—as a call to action for us caretakers to relieve the strain on the earth, to signal our participation, and to move toward salvation. “Not that we humans can or should salvage the world—Christ himself must do this—but we are God’s collaborators in sustaining this work of creation.” Hasenbrink says. “For me, and for the Christian community, this is the task of our time.”

solar-jesus15

The name “Creation Windows” was a cinch. “We thought, wouldn’t it be a great metaphor of what a church should be doing anyway, transforming the power of God into energy for our daily life? Just as electricity is a symbol of light and power, faith is a symbol of the power that God gives us to have hope and trust in humanity, to help each other and to co-create.”

9493917509_968c59e81c_z.jpg

With Germany’s recent decision to phase out nuclear energy by 2022 and switch to 100 percent renewables by 2050, the small church community suddenly finds itself at the cutting edge of a new energy age. Together with EWS, the Schönau energy rebels’ cooperative, which today employs more than 50 people, provides renewable power to 115,000 homes and businesses throughout Germany, and earned Sladek the Goldman Prize. They are leading the way in a shift of both policy and consciousness that few could have imagined just a decade ago. “If we wait until powerful leaders start to do good, the train will long have left the station,” Hasenbrink says. “You have to start wherever you’re at, but if it’s many of us, then one drop will turn into a big lake. And that’s what happened here.”

Tag, you’re it, Francis!
