The Present World Crisis and Solutions — Becoming Normal Again
One would have to be asleep if you are not concerned about the present world crisis, which includes wars and rumors of wars, economic collapse, injustice in many areas (including the healthcare field), weather and earth changes, political upheavals and unrest, environmental and ecological devastation (including our water and food supplies being ruined), toxins everywhere, genetically modified food that can mess with our natural body systems, the diminishing of our Constitutional rights in America, and corporate corruption.
When thousands and, indeed, hundreds of thousands of people die on a continuing basis within short periods of time, life should not go on as if normal anywhere on the earth. The Earth Mother is crying out for change, individual change. She is crying out for the souls of the planet to have a relationship with her Creator, the Universal Father. She will continue to cry out, if she is not heard, until the earth is totally destroyed.
When genocide occurs, life should not go on as if normal. Whatever country has the military power to stop genocide (especially the United States), it has the responsibility before God to stop it—and immediately—not just where the American oil- and other interests are at stake.
All soldiers need to be brought home, and the wars ended—including U.S. soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, and in other countries where former wars with these countries have been long over but thousands of American soldiers are still stationed in these “occupied” countries. The U.S. federal government needs to reduce military spending and put that money into domestic programs that will improve the national physical and social infrastructure that is beneficial for all citizens.
When millionaire, multi-millionaire, and billionaire white-collar thieves can get away with stealing millions of dollars and pay themselves salaries of close to $400,000,000 annually, life should not go on as if normal. Not only should they be arrested and jailed, but the key thrown away. Instead these thieving CEOs and others in top positions are given subsidies and bonuses by the U.S. government. White-collar crime of all kinds exists, harvesting off of the middle class and the poor. This upper-echelon thievery creates a huge social problem of a dwindling middle class that is economically descending to join the ranks of the poor and the already-existing poor suffering even more.
Healthcare in America is problem-ridden and increasingly withholds from those who cannot afford its ever-rising costs. People in Arizona on AHCCCS (Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System), who are in the lowest income bracket, now have to pay $15 before seeing a specialist. Depending upon how many children are in the family, that $15 can add up in one month, and some families can’t even afford for one family member to pay $15 to see a specialist.
No one can clean up the healthcare situation in America without drastic and radical changes, which involves giving every American free quality medical care. Call it what you want—socialized medicine or whatever—but it is the right of every citizen to receive free healthcare from qualified health practitioners. And those health practitioners should be receiving a salary based upon their education and experience. There needs to be a ceiling on doctors’ salaries and a ceiling on many executives in any field.
Quality education also needs to be free for every hopeful student, and professors and teachers need to be paid a salary they and their families can live off of too, by the government that is supposed to be “for the people, of the people, and by the people.”
Both the Republican and Democratic parties have to become one party: the party of common sense; the party of cooperation; the party of justice; the party of the spiritualized mind. Many in both parties claim relationship with God but are not really listening to the voice of God—which speaks of love, fairness, and justice—and instead are listening to the voice of greed and self-interest. Individuals in the United States get voted into office by a majority of voters who all too often are themselves narrow-minded and full of hatred, greed, and prejudice, and who lack higher consciousness and a diversified view on very important matters.
Unfortunately too many individuals elected into office are lower thinkers themselves, and this is an ongoing problem in America. If an individual with a good mind and good ideals and ideas comes into office (as is currently the case in the U.S. with the President), the bureaucracy and political rivalries stop him or her from implementing any policies that are beneficial to all U.S. citizens of all economic levels.
In these problematic and conflictive times within America, one solution is that the President of the U.S. (who should actually be an appointee of God as well as elected by intelligent and unselfish citizens) needs to take command of any situation and begin to implement what he or she realizes is needed—regardless of opposition—for he or she has the power of the presidential office behind him or her and must use it for the common good of all. At this point in the politics and conditions of the United States, this is the only way in which much-needed true change can come.
In order to withdraw U.S. troops from various countries, whether there in war or in peace, after hearing and considering the military stance in each situation, the President should have a meeting with the Generals of each military branch and inform them of his or her decision, regardless of their opposing opinions.
The President should dictate that extremely rich white-collar criminals be subjected to suffering the consequences of their thievery within a just legal system, rather than buckling to the pressures of the status quo within a corrupt and powerful financial system and bailing them out. And the President, within the power of his or her office, should change unfair and unethical laws that protect these criminals to continue doing their damage and implement laws and regulatory methods that prevent this type of thievery, regardless of strong opposition from political and corporate forces.
Regardless of political and corporate opposition, the President, within the power of his or her office, should insist on programs that provide quality healthcare and education for all citizens, regardless of their financial status.
And, even in a democratic country certain individuals should simply not be allowed to run for any office because they are not qualified due to limitations in their understanding of reality and life choices they have made that have not contributed to the common good of all. This should be decided by the President and his or her immediate council.
In formulating policy and making decisions within the government, who should assist elected officials and the President in coming to the highest decisions for the common good of all, taking into consideration future generations? The Ethics Committee of Heath. The Ethics Committee of Industry & Trade. The Ethics Committee of Scientific Research. The Ethics Committee of Education. The Ethics Committee of the Arts. The Ethics Committee of Food & Material Welfare. The Ethics Committee of Revealed Religion. The Ethics Committee of Agriculture & Animal Husbandry. The Ethics Committee of Law.
These Ethics Committees should all be appointed by the President and his or her council, and there should be three individuals (male or female) on each committee, as a triad, and individuals in each triad should be experienced in the field of their particular committee. For example the Ethics Committee of the Arts would include actors, musicians, artists, etc.
Life should not go on as if normal when you begin to recognize the problems and desire a solution. How could it? Individuals need to go on strike any way they can. Let God tell you what you must do—not through violence, but through Spiritualution™.
Spiritualution is the Solution™
The citizens themselves need to make drastic changes in their lives. A Spiritualution is needed because only through a spiritualized mind can individuals help to change the world. It begins with a personal relationship with the Creator, to be in the Creator’s perfect will, to be able to hear from God on a moment-to-moment basis, just like you would hear from the voice of greed and selfishness (which are also inside you). God’s voice must be stronger. You must have faith in God and learn what faith is—not faith in the paycheck, not faith in man’s organized religions.
God will tell you then to stop purchasing DVDs and going to films that promote sexual immorality (the sexual act is for the privacy of the bedroom not for Hollywood’s public exposure to sell movies), violence, greed, selfishness, and shallow thinking. God will lead you to stop making heroes out of those movie and rock stars who do not deserve to be admired due to their lower choices. You must become normal again. Let your heroes be spiritual men and women of all walks of life who live sustainable goodly lives, particularly teachers and true spiritual leaders. You must pray for wisdom to know who they are. Many professors today have sold out to an educational system corrupted by the materialistic values of financial institutions and corporations, and God may tell you to leave that university and the direction that will not serve you or the people of this planet.
God may then tell you to move on to another job or career that is more beneficial to humankind. You must become normal again. You may have to move from your geographic location. You would have to find others who have made this Spiritualution with you. I am not telling you join a church. As a matter of fact, because of the state of the country and planet, religion does not work and is not the answer and can only make you a follower of man and man’s distorted doctrines of God and God’s truth. You must seek God’s truth within you. True spiritual elders can help you, but you must be careful who you go to.
When you find such elders, treasure them. They most likely will not be connected to an organized religion, but there are some who are. They themselves, at some point in the near future, will have to leave their church and religious affiliations behind and come into the true kingdom of God—not as a Baptist, Methodist, Lutheran, or Catholic but as an ascending son or daughter of God. Again, I am making these previous statements concerning Christian denominations because America is mostly a Christian country. But people of all faiths need to put their relationship with God before their relationship with their religions. In the future there will only be one true religion: the religion of love, goodness, kindness, and being your brothers’ and sisters’ keeper, worshipping one Universal Father—“One God, One Planetary Family.” Then you will become normal again.
You will find now, at this time on the planet, that you will have to continue to move geographically and at some point if you have a calling deep within you to really want to make a difference—up and beyond other brothers and sisters of the planet—you should come to Divine Administration in Tumacácori, Arizona and be trained to become a Destiny Reservist, as you may have already been chosen by God for such a role. You feel that deep inside you already. But you will need training to become a world leader, and that’s what The University of Ascension Science and the Physics of Rebellion in Divine Administration are all about.
If you do not have such a calling, then you should join like-minded people and start a community where you are or a location where you can plant food and there is a good water supply, for the days ahead will be times of trouble and tribulation. You will need the support of others, where you have all things in common, where you can raise your children with a tribe of like-minded individuals. You cannot become a normal human being when you are surrounded by others who continually make wrong decisions before God, when their thoughts and actions are harmful to the rest of humanity.
Never take up weapons, for violence is not the way of God’s true change. The change is inward, one person at a time. But when that one person becomes two, and the two become four, and the four grow to four-hundred, and then four-thousand, then four-million, and then on to four-billion, that change and quantum leap can happen rapidly on a planet. The planet then can come into what is called the first stage of light and life where the majority of people are of higher consciousness. Through cooperation and in non-competitive reality, more things get done and rapid changes in all areas of life occur. This is the future for Urantia/Earth. The future is normalcy.
The choice of what kind of world you want is up to you.
Let the perfect happen.
