New Web Exclusives on Jubilee and Debt Abolition | Tikkun

New Web Exclusives on Jubilee and Debt Abolition

One in three Americans is currently being pursued by a debt collector, and debt cuts across many different religious communities. How are people of faith pushing back against unjust debts? If you enjoyed our Winter 2015 print issue [ http://www.tikkun.org/nextgen/winter-2015-table-of-contents ] on this topic, don’t miss these web-only perspectives from Buddhist, Jewish, Hindu, Catholic, and Episcopal writers, along with secular political analyses from prominent economists and activists. Contributors ask: “How do we adapt the Jubilee of Leviticus to contemporary society?” while seeking creative solutions to the staggering debts of homeowners, students, and developing countries alike.

Fulfilling Our Debt to Humanity: A Hindu Perspective on Jubilee
by Murali Balaji

Once we expand the definition of debt beyond material considerations, the idea of Jubilee becomes more than just debt cancellation-it becomes a broader push to institutionalize the fulfillment of our debts to humanity and Mother Earth.

by Alan Collinge

Sharing Empathy, Sharing Power: A Catholic Take on Debt and Jubilee
by Susan Wilcox

If we are going to demand just and fair debt relationships no longer hijacked by power plays, perhaps we need to instill in our systems and ourselves an understanding of childhood and adult development and build toward a capacity for perspective-taking.

The Jubilee and the Global Economy: Lessons from Leviticus
by Norman Solomon

Undoubtedly, the present economic order is marred by social and economic injustice among and within nations and by the overexploitation and destruction of natural resources. Scripture is not concerned with designing an economic system, but rather with prescribing how to implement justice and compassion within any given system.

Debtors All: Facing, and Embracing, Our Ecological Indebtedness
by Fletcher Harper

In our ecological age, our most common narratives of debt, which conflate salvation with independence from debt, fail to capture the counterintuitive dynamics of our indebtedness to nature and to recognize that our real salvation is in an intelligent and deeply felt interdependence with natural systems.

Reforming Money and Banking: Keys to Debt and Jubilee
by Hazel Henderson

In the face of economic instability, we need to consider creative solutions-like jubilee, public banking policies, and currency reform-that take into account the complexity of the environment, the nature of money itself, and the possibility for social innovation.

A Buddhist and Interfaith Response to Debt Capitalism
by Susmita Barua

In order to alleviate mass suffering, there is a spiritual urgency for the interfaith community in the United States to bring attention and public awareness to this global issue of debt crisis and jubilee.

The Oracle Report | Thursday, February 12, 2015



The Oracle Report – Thursday, February 12, 2015

“Outposts” – Aquarius Lunar Cycle: January 20 – February 17, 2015


“The Black Moon Transit of Virgo: November 27, 2014 – August 25, 2015”


Thursday, February 12, 2015

Third Quarter Moon Phase: revise, reassess

Moon in Scorpio/Sagittarius (11:45 am ET/4:45 pm UT)

Ruling Wisdom Goddess: Matangi (The Goddess Who Takes Care of Details)

Skill: bring balance

Positive Imprints: confidence, endurance, completion, applied creativity, following intuition, gaining awareness of something, satisfied desires, basic interpretations, simplicity

Catalysts for Change: class systems, servitude, neglect, rocky roads, running on empty, ignoring the physical body, dissatisfied

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: “an old adobe mission” (projecting plans into the future, inner spiritual retreat)

Ironically, as the last three days of this year’s hyper-dominant, aggressive energy of “the ruler of a nation” is completing, today’s energy favors pure intentions and innocent motives.

Balance tries to be restored today to places that are out of balance or are overcompensating. Is something out of balance for you? Does something need to be adjusted? If a breath of purity and innocence blew through, what would change? What would it cause you to do?

Balance within romantic relationships is particularly highlighted with this energy. A transformation is trying to occur within hearts. The energy aims to restore and rekindle dimmer flames. It also aims to redistribute the “fuel” of heart fires, so that both people share in giving and receiving. If the relationship heavily tilts toward one person doing most of the giving and one person doing most of the receiving, this issue will surface for revision (though it may mask as another issue).

Balance within the body is also highlighted today, so if you have been neglecting your body, make up for it today. Your body will thank you because today’s energetics amplify any effort to strengthen the health of the body. All bodies are connected, so when we work on the physical body, we are simultaneously working on the emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies.

Balance within our work comes today when we bring a creative element into the logical realm. Projects or tasks that have been mired in detail and need a little creative boost receive it today if we draw down the mental chatter and draw open space for something new to enter – to change it up. Mercury has stationed direct and things are beginning to untangle, bringing air and area for movement.

The Moon will conjunct Saturn at 7:30 pm ET/00:30 am UT at the degree of “an old owl up in a tree.” As the day progresses, wisdom seeks us, though we may be too weary to receive it. It’s best to not overthink things after the Sun goes down wherever you are tonight. Be the wise owl in the tree, observing and taking it all in, then turn it over to a higher power when you go to sleep. Let go and let the field transform.

The field of consciousness is shifting as we energetically close out the past year and prepare for a new (and exciting!) year. We continue to hold the line as the year abates, vigilantly watching the patterns change, and remaining firmly connected to nature and the beauty it brings to help us live in the full, present moment.

Thank you for supporting The Oracle Report!

The Hon. Paul Hellyer interview with Luke Rudkowski on Government Cover Up of Alien Contact

Leave a comment

“Lying is the Modus Operandi of the Whole System.”

Alexandra Bruce
February 11, 2015

This is a hot-off-the-presses and explosive interview by WeAreChange’s Luke Rudkowski with the first and only cabinet-ranking official from a G8 nation to have publicly stated a belief in extraterrestrials: the impressively sprightly 91-year-old, The Hon. Paul Hellyer.

Paul Theodore Hellyer, PC is a Canadian engineer, politician, writer and commentator who has had a long and varied career, which included being Canada’s Minister of Defense. Hellyer is the longest-serving current member of the Privy Council.

Hellyer goes into detail about his face-to-face meetings between US officials and of these officials’ direct experience with extraterrestrials and about the sharing of alien technology with humans, under the aegis of US Black Budget programs.

Hellyer suggests that the reality of UFOs and aliens and the official secrecy and the hoarding of information regarding same, is inextricably tied to the plans of of a powerful, fascist group of people, who plan to institute, by means of extreme force and genocide, a completely fascist New World Order (although he does not use that last term, specifically).

This is one of the themes of his recently-released book, ‘The Money Mafia: The World in Crisis.’ [Much to my surprise, an FKTV subscriber has informed me that I am personally cited twice in this book – so I’ve got to buy it, now!]

He suggests that the full disclosure of the alien reality on Earth is something that could help foil the large-scale genocidal plans, which this fascist group has planned for
the people of Earth.

To this end, Hellyer advocates Amnesty for all participants in Black Budget human-alien projects, so that they can be held immune from the crimes they were forced to commit while employed at these jobs and so that they can come forward without fear of reprisals 
for breaking their oaths of secrecy and freely share their information about these projects, which are illegal, in and of themselves, having been conducted without any legal oversight, with the use of US Taxpayer money.

Hellyer also suggests that official ET disclosure must come sooner, rather than later, as the current trajectory of US-dominated geopolitics can only lead the planet to disaster.
