The following originally appeared in Newtopia Magazine

“Imagine a world where abandoned McMansions become sustainable intentional communities where people, by sharing their resources, skills, and work, and renting rooms to like minded but more temporary guests, find not only congenial social lives but the time to work on art, music, inventions, writing, film, whatever dreams drive them.”

Noam Chomsky | The “Axis of Evil” Revisited

Noam Chomsky, Truthout: In mainstream discourse, it is considered natural that Iran alone should make concessions. There is a different perspective, little heard, though it might be worth at least a mention. It begins by rejecting the American assertion that the accord breaks 10 years of unwillingness on Iran’s part to address this alleged nuclear threat.

A TIME OF VIGILANCE AND THE GIFT FROM THE COMET ISON Patricia Cota-Robles

A TIME OF VIGILANCE AND THE GIFT FROM THE COMET ISON

by Patricia Cota-Robles

www.eraofpeace.org

This is a time of vigilance for awakening Humanity and the millions of Lightworkers who have worked so tenaciously to cocreate the Cosmic Moment we are now in the midst of, but this is not a vigilance based in fear. It is a vigilance based in the inner peace and the elation of knowing that we have God Victoriously made it through the most fragile and complex, yet the most monumental, shift of consciousness ever attempted in any system of worlds.

The Heavens are rejoicing, andevery man, woman, and child on Earth is being bathed in the most intensified 5th-Dimensional Solar frequencies of Divine Love that we are capable of withstanding without being vaporized. This unfathomable Divine Love is flowing into the mental and emotional strata of Earth from the Divine Matrix of our omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent Father-Mother God, the Cosmic I AM, ALL That Is. This Divine Matrix is the Body of God within which every particle and wave of Life throughout the whole of Creation lives, moves, breathes, and has its Being. Within this Divine Matrix we are not only One with our sisters and brothers in the Family of Humanity, we are One with our Father-Mother God, the Legions of Light throughout Infinity, and every single facet of Life ever breathed forth from the Core of Creation.

With this realization comes the awareness that since we are One with ALL Life the concepts of separation and duality are illusions. This means that every thought, word, feeling, action, belief, or memory we express reverberates through all Life everywhere. Amazingly, with every breath we take we are either adding to the Light of the World or to the shadows depending on what we are thinking, feeling, saying, doing, believing, or remembering. The vigilance that our I AM Presence and the Company of Heaven are invoking from every one of us at this time, is the vigilance of deliberately adding to the Light of the World through our thoughts and feelings, instead of empowering the obsolete and fear-based patterns of separation and duality from the old Earth.

In many instances, we just muddle through the day allowing our thoughts and feelings to buffet us about without any conscious direction. Consequently, monitoring what we are thinking and feeling moment by moment seems very tedious, or maybe even impossible. But please know this, EVERYTHING HAS CHANGED! Now, due to the miraculous events that have taken place since the Shift of the Ages and the Birth of the New Earth, vigilance over our thoughts and feelings is easier than ever before.

For one thing, every single person on Earth, that is correct every single person on Earth, has experienced an activation within his or her pineal gland which has allowed them to experience the initial impulse of their return to Christ Consciousness. This miracle was victoriously accomplished under the guidance and Divine Intervention of each persons I AM Presence, which was possible because awakened Humanity reached a critical mass of Divine Love after the Birth of the New Earth. That event created an unstoppable shift of consciousness on this planet that allowed each persons I AM Presence to activate their dormant pineal gland. Our pineal glands became dormant when we fell into the fear-based consciousness of separation and duality aeons ago.

The pineal gland is the spiritual brain center that directly receives the Light of God from our I AM Presence. This is the Divine Light that lifts and sustains us in the enlightened frequencies of Christ Consciousness. Our newly activated pineal gland is also connecting us once again with ALL of the multidimensional aspects of our own Divinity. I know that many people were expecting to witness an instant transformation in the hearts and minds of the masses with this activation, but that is not the way this shift into Christ Consciousness will manifest. The outer world effects of this activation and the reconnection with our own Divinity will not manifest in the physical plane instantaneously. This shift into Christ Consciousness will evolve within each person and manifest as subtle changes in their behavior patterns.

As Christ Consciousness and the awareness of Humanitys Oneness with ALL Life filters into the hearts and minds of the multitudes, the atrocities people are inflicting on each other and the Nature Kingdom will no longer feel right, or seem necessary. The dog-eat-dog survival consciousness of our fragmented and fear-based human egos will no longer be a viable option. Even though that self-obsessed consciousness has become the order of the day for millions of people, it will begin to feel wrong.

Day by day, people will start thinking twice about their behavior. Their old reflex responses based in selfish and often corrupt actions will not be their normal mode of operation any more. People will not be willing to gain whatever they are striving for by harming other people or the environment. Instead, through the eyes of Christ Consciousness, they will see the bigger picture and figure out how they can accomplish their goals in ways that will enhance life not only for themselves but for everyone involved. Then win-win situations will be the order of the New Day on Planet Earth. With this heartfelt intention based in Oneness and Divine Love, viable solutions will filter into peoples conscious awareness and they will realize that functioning from a consciousness of Oneness, Divine Love, and Reverence for ALL Life is not only life-transforming it is uplifting and fulfilling in wondrous and glorious ways.

Now, in perfect Divine Order, we have received a gift of Light from the Heavenly Realms that has moved Humanitys shift into Christ Consciousness forward by leaps and bounds.

Comet ISON, an Amazing Gift from On High!

Since the initial impulse of our fall from Grace, the Company of Heaven has been working with Humanitys I AM Presence in unprecedented ways. The Divine Intent of this celestial assistance was designed to help us reverse the adverse effects of our fall from Grace. This reversal consisted of two major steps. The first step involved reclaiming the power that was usurped by our fragmented and fear-based human egos as we descended into the chaos of separation and duality. The second step involved assisting our I AM Presence to reactivate our spiritual brain centers, so we could return to Christ Consciousness.

The Comet ISON has been a factor in this Divine Intervention from the very beginning. I know that astronomers consider comets to be nothing more than dirty snowballs, but that is inaccurate. Even the most minuscule subatomic particle or wave of life pulsates with energy, vibration, and consciousness. In other words, everything that exists in the Divine Matrix of our Father-Mother God has intelligence and a purpose and reason for being.

Comets are actually forcefields of consolidated Light that pass through the atmosphere and break down the crystallized patterns and thoughtforms that no longer serve the highest good of the particular Solar System they enter. In their wake, they leave a fluid field of unmanifest Divine Potential upon which new patterns and sacred knowledge can be encoded from On High to assist the evolving Sons and Daughters of God in that system of worlds.

Since its inception, the Comet ISON was destined for this moment in the evolution and Ascension of our Solar System. Astronomers have stated that the Comet ISON is 4,500,000,000 years old, but this is the very first time it entered our Solar System. Four and one-half billion years is also the time line that coincides with the creation of our Central Sun and the Suns and Planets in our Solar System.

The Company of Heaven revealed that the Comet ISON has been preparing for its service to Earth and our Solar System since the beginning of time. It is not by chance that this comet completed its 4,500,000,000 year sojourn through the Divine Matrix of our Father-Mother God during this auspicious moment in the evolution of Planet Earth. 2013 is the first year of the recently birthed New Earth and the initial impulse of the masses of Humanitys return to Christ Consciousness. Unprecedented influxes of Light have taken place this year through the unified efforts of Heaven and embodied Lightworkers. These events paved the way for the Comet ISON and its Divine Mission of moving all Life evolving in our Solar System, and specifically on this sweet Earth, forward in the Light a quantum leap.

Some of the miracles that occurred with the Shift of the Ages and the Birth of the New Earth on December 21-22, 2012, involved every man, woman, and child on this planet God Victoriously making it through the Shift of the Ages. This event, which far exceeded even the greatest expectations of Heaven, allowed Mother Earth to reclaim her rightful place in our Solar System. This, in turn, created the sacred space for every single persons I AM Presence to activate the initial impulse of his or her pineal gland, which initiated Humanitys collective return to Christ Consciousness.

After the success of those events, Humanity was able to receive and assimilate higher frequencies of Divine Light than we have experienced since our fall from Grace aeons ago. This greatly empowered influx of 5th-Dimensional Crystalline Solar Lightbegan to bathe the Earth for the first time during the September Equinox of 2013. Following that Gift of Light from our Father-Mother God, the Portal of Transfiguring Divine Love above Italy was opened to full breadth. This is the portal through which the patterns of perfection for our newly Birthed Renaissance of Divine Love will enter the New Earth. That activity of Light was followed by the most intensified Lunar and Solar Eclipses the Earth has ever experienced. The Light bathing the Earth during those Eclipses enhanced the ability of Humanitys I AM Presence to release and transmute the obsolete patterns of separation and duality from the old Earth. That purging paved the way for another powerful influx of Light that took place in mid-November. Through some very powerful Solar Flares and celestial alignments, the final preparation for the Gifts of the Comet ISON were completed.

The Divine Mission of the Comet ISON is complex and really beyond the comprehension of our finite minds, but this is a very brief description of what the Company of Heaven is sharing with us. 4,500,000,000 years ago, the Comet ISON was breathed forth from the Core of Creation simultaneously with our Solar System. At the moment of our inception, every particle and wave of Life associated with our Solar System was encoded with the full Divine Potential of our Father-Mother God and the Divine Plan for this system of worlds. Comet ISON likewise was encoded with the Divine Potential destined for our Solar System. When the Earth and Humanity fell into the chaos of separation and duality, the Comet ISON maintained the activation codes for the Divine Potential of our Solar System and Humanitys return to Christ Consciousness as Sons and Daughters of God.

For millions of years, since our fall from Grace, the Company of Heaven has been working diligently with the I AM Presences of Humanity. The intent of this Divine Intervention was to help the Sons and Daughters of God return to the path of Divine Love and Christ Consciousness. The hope was that we would awaken in time to reclaim our position in the Solar System and to Ascend with the Earth and the rest of our Solar System into the 5th-Dimensional Realms of Light during the Cosmic Moment known as The Shift of the Ages. No one knew if the masses of Humanity would awaken in time to pull this off or not, but no one was willing to give up on us.

After decades of dedication and thousands of activities of Light that were cocreated by people around the world who were working in unison with the Company of Heaven, it became crystal clear in 2012 that indeed Humanity and the Earth were going to make it through the Shift of the Ages. That is when the Comet ISON was summoned by the Mighty Elohim, the Builders of Form, to fulfill its unique facet of the Divine Plan for Planet Earth and our Solar System.

In September 2012, astronomers discovered the Comet ISON. They were astonished by the size of this rare comet that was traveling toward our Solar System. They surmised that ISON had the potential of being the Comet of the century. Because this comet was as old as our Solar System, scientists were looking forward to studying its properties after it completed its journey around our Sun, but that was not ISONs Divine Plan.

On November 28, 2013, the day when the United States of America was celebrating Thanksgiving and focusing on everything we were grateful for, the mission of the Comet ISON was brought to fruition. As ISON completed the final phase of its 4,500,000,000 billion year journey, it was pulled into our Sun. In an awesome explosion of Light, Comet ISON exponentially expanded the activation codes for the Divine Potential pulsating within the core of purity in every atomic and subatomic particle and wave of Life associated with our Solar System.

On Earth, this influx of the activation codes of our Divine Potential meant a monumental acceleration in Humanitys awakening process and our shift into Christ Consciousness. This incredible expansion of Light is now entering our newly activated pineal glands and assisting our I AM Presence to heal the short circuits that occurred within our original 12 Solar Strands of DNA during our fall from Grace.

The double-helix DNA that our scientists acknowledge is but a minuscule fraction of our Divine Potential. Scientists actually call 98 percent of our DNA junk DNA, which of course is absurd. The activation codes from the Comet ISON that are now dramatically affecting each and every one of us are going to make our ability to control what we are empowering with our thoughts, feelings, words, actions, beliefs, and memories much, much easier. The Beings of Light have said that this is just the beginning of the changes we will notice from this incredible Gift from the Comet ISON.

Remember, EVERYTHING HAS CHANGED! The Company of Heaven has assured us that if we will take the time to invoke our I AM Presence every morning, and then deliberately strive to add to the Light of the World with every breath we take, we will be successful beyond our wildest hopes and dreams. So lets give this a chance.

Becoming Master of Our Thoughts and Feelings

Know that the Love of God and the patterns of perfection for the New Earth are eagerly awaiting the opportunity to manifest in Humanitys everyday life experiences. In order for this to occur however, the Divine Love and the patterns of perfection must be drawn through the Divinity pulsating within the Heart Flames of the Sons and Daughters of God who are abiding in the physical plane of Earth; this means you and me. We will only accomplish this by staying focused in the Light and by being vigilant of every thought, feeling, word, action, belief, and memory we are empowering moment to moment.

So how do we go about doing this? What is the easiest way for us to become the masters of our thoughts, words, feelings, actions, beliefs, and memories instead of the victims of our unconscious mental ramblings? Well, the key is for us to be consciously aware of the profound Truth thatWHERE OUR ATTENTION IS THERE WE ARE!

Remember, we are One with ALL Life and there is no separation. Every single moment of the day we are either adding to the Light of the world or the shadows depending on our frame of mind. To determine which one we are empowering, all we have to do is pay attention to what we are thinking and feeling as we go about our day. This may seem like a difficult task, but actually it is just a slight adjustment in our awareness. We need to simply ask our I AM Presence to help us to be cognizant of what we are thinking and feeling moment by moment. In the beginning this may seem like a lot of work. Time and again, we will have to deliberately bring our attention back to what we are thinking and feeling. But gradually, with our newly activated pineal glands and the activation codes from the Comet ISON, paying attention to our thoughts and feelings will become very natural and automatic.

So lets begin.

The best way to start this process is by invoking your I AM Presence and aligning with the I AM Presence of all Humanity every morning. This is easily done by simply stating…

I AM my I AM Presence, and I AM One with the I AM Presence of ALL Humanity.

Then ask your I AM Presence to help you be consciously aware of what you are empowering with your thoughts, feelings, words, actions, beliefs, and memories as you go about your day.

Throughout your day periodically ask yourself…

Is what I AM thinking and feeling now what I want to empower and sustain in my life? At this moment, are my thoughts and feelings adding to the Light of the World or the shadows?

If your thoughts and feelings are not empowering what you want to create in your life or adding to the Light of the World then blaze the Violet Flame of Gods Infinite Perfection through them and ask yourself…

What do I want to focus my attention on and create in my life instead of that? I ask my I AM Presence to reveal to me ideas and viable options that will help me empower and sustain what I want to create in my life while I AM adding to the Light of the World. I want to accomplish this with the highest good of all concerned.

After you ask your I AM Presence to help you, take a moment and go within the Divinity of your Heart to listen for the answers that your I AM Presence will reveal to you. The answers from your I AM Presence will help you create what you want in your life in the most positive and Loving way. The more you focus your attention on what you want to create in your life, while simultaneously invoking the Violet Flame to transmute everything that conflicts with the vision of what you want, the sooner your life will reflect the changes you desire.

The more vigilant you are in paying attention to your thoughts and feelings, the faster your life will change and the sooner the New Earth will become a tangible reality in your everyday experiences. Day by day, as you become the master of your thoughts and feelings, you will see evidence of the shift into Christ Consciousness that is manifesting not only in your heart and mind, but in the hearts and minds of people everywhere. Know that this is not a shift of consciousness that is destined for some future time. Christ Consciousness is beginning to manifest through the hearts and minds of the masses of Humanity right here and right now. And so it is.

New Moon Phase: intend, begin, renew, set a wish or intention

Moon: Capricorn

Diamond Sky Dakinis Rule This Lunar Month, Not The Mahavidyas

AUDIO UPDATE 11/24/2013https://www.freeconferencing.com/playback.html?cid=conferences/-17-65-67-17-65-67116-17-65-67281390-17-65-6736-17-65-67-52-1022272250.mp3&e=1640926800000&cn=94-43-28-63

The “rebalancing” energetic is opening up opportunities. It is easy to see this with “positive” events and situations, but it is also happening through events and situations that seem to be “negative” or upsetting. The “upset” is because things are coming into balance. Things are not only being corrected and repaired, but also supported or re-supported. An unpleasant situation is a sign that something better is waiting if we can see the opportunity – the signal. Action is required to get to that better situation.
Rigidity is being busted up; systems reliant on power and control over freedom are collapsing under their own weight; limitations are dissolving. But since the Moon has now moved into Capricorn, joining Pluto today, the focus will be on structures, frameworks, foundations, and bedrock. This means the structure of everything – relationships, situations, jobs, nations, people – is undergoing transformation. They are changing from one thing to another.

The aim of this effort is to bring a more harmonious, settled, happy experience of life. This is the frequency of the planet, our Mother, and as we are coming into balance within ourselves, we are coming into balance with her. We are matching up with her frequency. She is the source of the rebalancing.

The pull toward retreat is strong today. Retreat means many things. But primarily the word is meant here in its form as turning away from chaos and turning toward calm. We much prefer an internal, spiritual “retreat” today. If you find yourself unable to tolerate noise, you are in the right tune. (Joyful noise is not noise in this sense.) The real core of it is when we turn from the noise, what do we hear? What do we want to hear? Are they the same?
