On this day in 1955, Bertrand Russell, et al held a press conference in London. They originally reserved the lower, smaller room at Caxton Hall, a local community center. But as people started to arrive, Russell moved upstairs to the much bigger room to accommodate the press who were coming from around the world.
The Russell Einstein Manifesto was Albert Einstein’s last great public message to the world. He signed it nine days before he died. These were his last burning questions that he took with him to the grave.
Another of the authors was Joseph Rotblat, a nuclear physicist who worked on the Manhattan project until asking to leave on the grounds of personal conscience. Rotblat believed that scientists should always be concerned with the ethical consequences of their work and became one of the most prominent critics of the nuclear arms race, dedicating his life to campaigning against nuclear weapons.
Although the Russell–Einstein Manifesto was launched in July 1955, this was the result of several months of discussion between those who became the signatories. These visionaries’ words about the dangers of weapons of mass destruction read today with even greater depth than when they were first voiced in 1955. All the while we have moved closer to deciding which way we will go.
What can us ordinary people do? Make choices as we are being advised: find creative solutions to our conflicts without fighting or war. Become that change that we want so badly for the world. Be an inner and outer peacemaker. Make decisions to work for the good of the whole. We must get to know ourselves and where we may inadvertently be contributing to the conflicts around us.
Then get to work in one of the many arenas that are bringing together concerned citizens to be the change. Below is some information on “presidential first use of nuclear weapons,” including a short video on topic of “Presidential First Use of Nuclear Weapons. Is it Legal? Is it Constitutional? Is it Just?” from a conference held November 4, 2017 at Harvard University.
You can also sign on to a movement directed at Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden asking him to pull us back from the brink of nuclear war.
The longer I work with my Imagined Einstein and this Party, the more I am convinced that they really have reached us from beyond the grave and are working with us for world peace, one person at a time, starting with ourselves. It is an honor to serve.

Transcription Meditation and channel
I invite you to close your eyes if that is comfortable for you and settle into a position and posture that feels good to you …
Welcoming you to begin by bringing your attention to your heart center … let’s start to connect with the breath … allowing each out breath to assist you in letting go of all the places your mind has been so far this morning …
Setting aside the rich conversation we just had which you can come back to. Relaxing the muscles in your body and sinking into the support of the chair or the floor or cushion you are sitting on …
Today in our meditation, we are going to energetically visit the three human dimension points taught to Barbara by Einstein … beginning with the Observer, then into the Lens where our bodies reside, and finally into the Source …
If this is your first time here today, listening to these terms … do not be concerned … simply allow yourself to enjoy the journey of following the words and sense into your experience … it will be perfect …
Imagine now that there is a part of you that is up in the heavens above the earth … along with the stars and planets … out in space … and this part of you has the ability to turn around and look at the earth … you can even sit on a bench there if it feels uncomfortable to float … but imagine you have a clear view of our planet earth … much like the pictures that have come back from NASA of our beautiful planet … looking at our big blue marble …this is the Observer. It’s a place outside of the lens of your day-to-day human life …imagine it’s watching over you … having the wide-angle view of the big picture of all of life on planet Earth …
In front of you is a string, grab on to that string as we each follow our own individual strings … down through the atmosphere … past the clouds … and into the lens of your life on the surface of planet Earth. This is our second point…imagine now you’re still following this string as it reaches the crown of your head …
Dropping down through your head and neck … down into your heart center where we first began … continuing through your torso and down your legs … you might even see a light or feel a warm sensation as you following this string through your physical body …
As it continues out your body through the bottoms of your feet, feel your connection to the earth below you, the home which nurtures and sustains us …
Letting go now of the body … the ego … the masks we sometimes feel we need to wear … the voices of culture … the duality … the joys and challenges of daily living … as we continue following this string …
Into the earth … you might feel it … or sense it … or even see it continuing down through the greenery … and through the layers of soil and rock of earths crust … and continue to descend into the very center of the earth …
This is the Source and our third point where we are in the clarity … here it begins with just one, the self. At first let’s imagine we are there by ourselves as just one. This is where the I AM of your Essence begins …
Invite to your awareness now to the other people listening in the group … from their I AM presence … and then add the awareness of Einstein and the Party … where they are also connected to us … in the Source.
Here we are all together aware of both our body, but also of being in the source and the clarity together…
We will command that only the most divine light shine down upon you at this time and the greatest good be present here.
Welcome to the clarity. It is an honor to have you here in such a state of awareness. We are grateful for Robin to provide your entrance into this state. We wanted to connect you first today with your Human Intention to have you actually experience the multifaceted part of your whole operating system. Because right now, the part of your operating system that is in the Lens—in your physical body and in fact making the entire universe experience possible—is going through a transformation of such proportion that even we are at a loss for words as to how to explain it on a tactile, sensory level.
We have always said that your physical body is the projector and the perceiver of the entire universe. Without a physical body, you are down here in the clarity, in the Source, as potential consciousness. So the creation of the universe is absolutely dependent upon the creation of your physical body.
In all of these talks of transcendence that we’ve been giving in 2020, never before this day has it seemed quite so appropriate and so clear that the changes taking place in your world that are so extreme are the reflection of the extremity of the world being out of balance. There will be varying degrees of participation in the chaos. Some people, as you see in your small group, are far, far removed—isolated on the north end of an island far away. Others are directly in the chaos and the manifestation of that chaos. The balance is going to be giving of yourself from which place you are at. So if you are one of those who is directly in the midst of the chaos, then you have different needs and also different resources than people who are safe behind the lines—still connected to you. Being able to identify your specific needs is going to be the key to maneuvering through these changes.
The concept of constant self adjustment will be a way of life. In a particular perspective, that is not a bad thing. What is going to result from the chaos are good things, bringing balance back and changing the planet in a way that nothing else could. You can’t vote this out. You can’t legislate it out. You can’t change the imbalances from within the structures that are themselves so imbalanced that they are creating the imbalance in the first place.
So in many ways, it’s the natural result of the weakness of the system. There’s really little that can be done to stop it. In the same way, you wouldn’t want to. You want the justices to come forward. You want the balance to be restored much like if you had a terrible disease that was part of healing a deeper malady. You would want to push through that—go through that disease in order to get better. You wouldn’t want to have the disease in the first place, but if the disease is part of an imbalanced system, if having the disease and healing from it will bring you back to balance, that’s what you need, that’s what you want.
Despite how difficult it is to go through and to watch, this [change] is really coming from the heart of so many prayers. Not just the unprecedented number of prayers going on at one time right now across the planet. But as Penny was speaking of, there are ancient prayers. There are generations of holy people and masses of devout lovers and compassionate people who through the years have said prayers. They’re all coming at one time.
We have been preparing you for as long as we’ve been allowed to speak openly through Barbara’s voice. The messages of preparation are ancient and certainly not original to us. But our work with you has been an intricate, intimate examination of the structure of the consciousness of human selves.
There’s also a cheerleading aspect to our work: we’ve hoped to inspire you not just to read about those things, but pragmatically apply in action to your life the changes that the planet needs right now.
We have been doing this for decades, so today our message may not seem any different than any message that we’ve given prior. The difference is what’s happening in the energy of all of the humans on the planet right now collectively at one time. That’s the difference. You could not have had that without this kind of global pandemic. You may have had it if there had been World War III, but the physical destruction of landscape, air and water would have been far more devastating then this pandemic and would not have reached all corners of the world like it has.
As you are faced with the challenges of keeping balance in your system while the world is raging on, remember to focus on your inner balance. If you focus on the world outside yourself as if that is going to lead you somewhere, you’ll get caught up in it. Don’t stop participating in any support or action that you feel called to do in these chaotic times to help those who are in the midst of the present-moment chaos. Follow that, too. Use that Compassion, which is really the Source, to change what’s going on immediately around you.
While you are doing that, conduct also a continuing and daily examination of your own imbalances. Ask yourself to be shown what in your life are imbalances that you can bring a practice or a viewpoint or a pragmatic action to that will bring balance.
One of the things we frequently recommend is, when you’re in the wave of the chaos, often times that’s the best place to stop thinking. If you’re in a chaotic situation, often times the fear factor of being truly in danger (not a perceived anxiety of thinking about what could happen and making yourself sick, but actually being in danger), the intuition that’s associated with the fear will kick in and take over your thinking process in a supernatural way. It’s how people have been able to, say, lift a car off of someone who’s been run over. There’s a focus, a supernatural surge of energy and direction, supernatural in the sense that its going to guide you to do things to be protective of you and with a knowledge that your human mind couldn’t accumulate in that moment while you’re in the danger.
So if you’re in a moment of chaos: the feeling and the breathing and the having the wherewithal to have your intellectual mantra, that clears your head. People who panic are people who get too much in their head.
On the other hand, when you’re truly safe in your house, behind closed doors and away from the chaos, that is a time to really let the mind go. Let it unwind. Let it think. Sort of like letting your emotions out: let your thoughts to just run wild without letting them take control of the mechanism. Not that you shouldn’t be feeling and breathing, but step into your witness to be able to also watch your mind think.
Witness is different than the Observer. The Observer is way out in the heavens seeing the huge picture. The witness is here in your physical world in the Lens with you, watching with the capacity to observe yourself in your life.
There needs to be a time where your mind needs to unravel, too. So often humans are hesitant to do that because they are afraid if the mind unravels, then the emotions will unravel. If the emotions unravel, than the decision-making processes will unravel. That’s a good thing to be concerned about. It’s why the world is where it is right now.
But you’re a different kind of human. You’re here having this human experience in 2020 to be the change agents, to bring this balance. So when you go to a place where you let your intellect go crazy, you can step outside your mind and visualize it any way you wish. When we began with Barbara, she’d visualized her ego and that thought process as a very small, tiny little human sitting on a little rocking chair in the corner so you could barely hear that ranting.
Today you might have the facilities and the wherewithal to observe a wild mind without getting trapped in it to see what those thoughts are. To observe what they are and to understand that as you’re sitting in your witness and watching a river of thoughts, remember that they are from unidentified sources. Sometimes they are from past lives. Sometimes they are from former times in this life. Sometimes they are other people’s thoughts.
There is so much energy in the Intellect. And you’re so intertwined with each other that it’s no wonder that you can think each others thoughts, that you can pick up what other people are thinking. It’s a shared energy. You just have a little corner of it that’s separated by a electromagnetic membrane that encompasses your particular compilation of consciousness. That’s why you can’t take those thoughts very seriously.
Some years ago we delineated the difference between the different strata of Intellect: the deep, subatomic part of the intellect where you don’t hear it. You don’t hear the voice of Intuition saying, “Beat, heart. Beat, heart. Beat, heart.” You don’t hear all of that in this sub strata.
Then there’s the conscious level, where [you can hear] all of the voices of culture that were programmed into it. And the immediate imagination, as well as the voice of Intuition coming up where you can hear it consciously.
Then the Super-conscious thinking, where is the thoughts of the divine being, the thoughts of God, the thoughts of Compassion working for the good of all. That particular level of Intellect is being called upon now. But you can’t just deny the other parts. You have to somehow learn to integrate all of them—many moving parts on the human consciousness.
Look to your own imbalances not as a criticism, not as a defect, not that you’re doing something wrong, but that instead you’re doing something completely right because you have chosen to be born here at this time to jump into that river of change with this new body, this new physical transcendence where you are living in the world—definitely in the world. You’re feeling, your breathing, you’re feeling the whole planet right now. You’re opening up your heart in a way you never have before.
At the same time, you’re transcending above and outside of the physical world. That is why we asked Robin to do this meditation this morning. To give you a tactile, pragmatic creative experience of transcendence, where you’re in the world, you’re in the Lens, it’s true. The whole universe is being perceived and projected there in the Lens. But you’re above it and outside of it, too. You’re the Observer. You are here in the Clarity with us. This is where you go between lives as you’re all gathered here in the silence and yet the cacophony of all knowledge
Think about the Pentecost, where there came a moment where it didn’t matter what language you were speaking, it didn’t matter how you saw God. That when you spoke the words of God they were understood. This is the exciting time that you’re moving into.
Before we leave you today to go into your beautiful, amazing, miraculous, chaotic, ever-changing world, we want to ask you to take with you this vision: that you’re sitting in this place together. For simplicity sake, this place is just a white plane as far as the eye can see, except for the circle. You can imagine, there’s Penny and Barbara and Joan and Joanne and Robin and Lily in the circle. There’s also the Party, all of us speaking collectively. There’s all of your friends and family. There’s all your ancestors. There’s all the hangers-on that are all part of the Party—this great, collective voice of consciousness that is rising up in this day and age to say compassion is the only way and are going to commit themselves personally to becoming that compassion to the utmost of their ability.
That is all you can do and that is a gracious plenty.
So while you’re here in the Clarity with us, know that you can always lie down, close your eyes, turn in from the outside world and find your way to this vast expanse of potential compassion that exists within the source of this planet. And tap into it. Bathe in it. Let it guide you to take pragmatic steps to the extreme self care and care of others that are needed so right now.
We feel as if the analogy of the Clarity is a powerful effect. And as you sit here in this circle with us, of all eternity, all the joy, all the vision is possible here so you can see after the balance is restored. It’s not going to look like it did before and it’s going to take some monumental changes. But this is just the beginning.
The joyful part is that there are so many also volunteering to come down on the planet right now to be born today, tomorrow, next summer, next year—these children are going to be born into this new system and they already have a leg up because of all of the spiritual changes that have been happening. But now, they are also going to be the architects of a completely new world that is going to be the world where, in some years ahead, the child sits down with their grandmother and says, “Grandmother, did they really used to settle arguments with war?” Because that is what is needed. That justice is being administered now. It doesn’t look like it in the chaos. But step into the Observer and see this big, beautiful planet. Know that this is a lifetimes in the making.
We hope that you can feel honored and excited and humbled to know that not only are you here to be a difference in the world, but that you are making that difference. You may not be able to see it, but you are planting those seeds in ways you’ve never planted seeds before.
Keep at it. Keep going inside. Keep being that change. We are here for you. We are always here for you. And when you shed those bodies and come back to the Clarity, we will still be here for you, having this party.
So with that we thank you again for all of your service and your connection. We really felt it very important as you move forward to connect with each other. We can talk all day long. We will say the same things ad infinitum. But when you can share with each other what’s going on in the Lens, that is a powerful, powerful form of self care right now.
And so go with our blessings and truly watch and be amazed. Namaste
Channeled April 26, 2020
BARBARA: It is April 26, 2020. Welcome to everyone who is present here right now. To those who in the future who will be listening later from whenever you are, I hope everyone is hanging in there in all this pandemanium.
I am blessedly in Lake Superior on Madeline Island. And while I, too, as Lily had said before we started, have been experiencing many deep emotions, I think we all have had those experience. I have to admit, my life is not greatly touched negatively by this right now. I recognize there are other people than me. But if I have to just talk about my personal life, I have so much wonderful fresh food and I’ve got a beautiful home and clean water. I have access to nature 24 hours a day, and I live in this great community. It’s springtime. I have a little bit of a cushion financially. So I’m not greatly affected by all this in that way.
But it’s still pushed me into getting involved in the community garden, which is also being outside and in nature and in the sun and doing all those things that are good for us. So I think more than ever I send out my prayers and my energy and my vision to those people who aren’t in the same boat. I know a while back I said something about us being in the same boat. But it’s really not. We’re all in the same storm and everybody’s in their own boat. All our boats are together but we’re having different experiences. So more than ever, I send out my prayers, I think we all do, to this beautiful world, and everybody and everything they’re going through, to really understand what it means to be truly connected to each other. I’m grateful for all of that.
I’m so grateful for Robin, who has many talents, one of which, besides womaning the technology, is that she is an astrologer. I have asked her today to speak a little bit about what’s going on in the stars and the planets during this unorthodox and unconventional time we’re going through. Robin, would you want to share that with us. Can you give us some insight into what’s going on up there?
ROBIN: Yes, Barbara, thank you, it would be my honor to. I also love the analogy we’re all on the same storm but not on the same boat. I’m going to remember that.
I have to go back a coupe of months to set the stage for the astrology. Astrologers for many, many years have been “oohing” and “aahing” about what the stars are going to look like in 2020. So for astrologers, seeing all this unfold is, “Wow, we were expecting something big, but we really didn’t know what it would look like.” In 2008, the planet Pluto, which is a very slow-moving planet, entered Capricorn right around the financial fall. Then it goes through a sign for 16 to 20 years, and it will be in Capricorn until 2024.
But what’s unique is about 2020 we have had a parade of other planets also enter Capricorn. Five of them aligned with Pluto at the exact degree on January 12, 2020. So I think of this as a progression or procession where Pluto has been slowly moving through Capricorn. Pluto is the transformer. Capricorn is a sign of structures. It rules the government. It rules societal structures, which in and off itself isn’t necessarily a bad thing. But when Pluto comes through a sign or a placement in the sky or in your particular chart, it is surely going to create transformation in the places that need it. Like Shiva.
So we really began some of this transition, this transformation, when Pluto first entered Capricorn. Then on January 12, 2020, Saturn was there. The Sun was there. And since then, Venus has come through, Mercury has come through. Mars has come through. Around March 19th, on the equinox actually, Jupiter came through. That was a very powerful day because Jupiter touched Pluto in Capricorn. What that brings is expansion and innovation and new ideas. I’m an evolutionary astrologer. I think all of you can relate to that. The idea is that there’s nothing inherently wrong; we’re all here evolving. Like our series, this time we’re evolving to transcendence.
Each [planet] is bringing its gifts with it. Jupiter is going to be going back and forth across Pluto for this entire year. Saturn went by it, but it’s going to come back and touch. Pluto went retrograde yesterday. So we’re going to be doing this very big dance all of this year. Then some of those planets are going to be moving into Aquarius. What this is doing for us is, it’s helping us learn what is essential, what needs to be transformed in our structures so that when Pluto does move into Aquarius, that’s really ushering in the Aquarian age that everybody’s been talking about for who knows how long. That’s the official start of the Aquarian age.
We want to have our values straight because Aquarius also rules artificial intelligence. We’re going to be moving into a time of significant advancement there. That’s really even going to step up quite a bit starting next year because Saturn will be going through Aquarius.
So I like to look at it as, yes, it’s going to be a very intense year, but if we take the viewpoint that we’re never given a challenge without also all the skills and gifts to move through it, I’m confident that we can look at this as an optimistic time.
So that’s the synopsis, and I’ll hand it back to you, Barbara.
BARBARA: Wow, that’s a lot of planets. I remember you telling me that they lined up in January and now here in April undergoing what we’re undergoing … wow, what a pull. And what could have done what this virus had has done so decisively and worldwide? There is so many layers of what’s going on here. Thank you, Robin, for that. I like to look up in the sky and of course I love anything to do with Aquarius, even though I know some of the trials and tribulations of Aquarius, like we all have but …
ROBIN: Let me say one thing about. You know that the highest octave of Aquarius, which we see in you, Barbara, is a humanitarianism. Aquarius rarely does things of just themselves. They often speak in “we” and they are visionaries. They’re the sign after Capricorn, which means there’s the wisdom of Capricorn already rolled all in there. So Aquarius is at the stage that says, “How do we take everything we’ve learned through all the signs before and make a difference for the human collective?” It’s a beautiful sign.
BARBARA: The virus gives it this dividing line. It’s , like “before virus” and “after virus,” someone was saying. As we’ll learn today I’m sure in the channel, the perspective that we take into the “after virus” is going to be all crucial to what what we create.
ROBIN: Exactly The transformation will happen.
BARBARA: It is.
ROBIN: And I think the more we go into it consciously and coming together in groups like these and doing our work, we can succeed.
BARBARA: We are succeeding. I’m very excited about all of it. Thank you Robin, I sure appreciate your sharing.
BARBARA: When I started channeling groups with Kim and Teresa all those many years ago, it took a couple of group channels to figure out that the Angels had their own agenda. Ever after, for the most part (with the exception of a few channels that I’ve specifically asked for) I’ve pretty much just been told: here’s the series, here’s the lessons that we want to teach, and the same was true with this week’s channel.
I looked out to my backyard and said, “So what flavor of transcendence will we be doing this week?” Without a hesitation I heard sacred. Sacred transcendence. I, of course, grabbed the dictionary and I started looking stuff up.
But just for a review, transcendence means two things: one is “to pass beyond our human limits,” and the other is “to experience ourselves above and independent of the physical world.” Our work on being transcendent is a pragmatic practice of learning to live in the world but not become a victim of it.
One meaning of the word sacred is “being dedicated or set apart for worship of a deity” — being dedicated or set apart for worship of a deity. Then worship lead me to “the reverent love and allegiance accorded a deity” as well as “the ceremony, prayers or rights by which that love is expressed.”
Then deity led me to divinity which lead me to divine, meaning “being or having the nature of a God; of relating to, emanating from or being the expression of a God; superhuman; supremely good.” Then I found this: divine as a verb: “to know by inspiration, intuition or reflection.
So it sounds to me like the Angels are trying to tell us something about ourselves. All of this is about self love. As I told the girls back in 1994, we are God. Transcendence is about acknowledging the power of the divine within us and each other, and creating a daily ritual that reminds us of this great power of love that we have been gifted with and that no one can take away from us but us. Without self love, what do you have to give to anyone else? You cannot give what you do not have.
So sacred transcendence then in essence is a ceremony of love that we do for ourselves and the planet that helps us pass beyond our human limitations to recognize our godhood and experience ourselves above and independent of the physical world. We are in the world but we’re not victims to it.
During this extraordinary situation we’re all finding ourselves in, more than ever we need this ceremony for love every day. We need to be reminding ourselves of our own godhood. It is the perfect time to strip away as many of our habits as possible to show us a new perspective. Whether we like it or not, we are all being changed and like everything, the quality of that change will depend on the quality of our relationship to ourselves. Our relationship to the material world is filtered through our own self love or lack thereof.
Sacred transcendence becomes a simple way to make sure that we’re maintaining the highest relationship to ourselves that we possibly can have. Quite simply that means, one, feeling and breathing all of our feelings; getting those wild horses of the intellect under control; creating new definitions of who we are and what’s happening around us; and finding the time and the stillness to listen to our intuition.
Now I’ve been hearing from different sources that stress and fear diminish our immune systems. That reminded me of the opening of Diaries [of a Psychic Sorority: Talking With the Angels] where the three of us put forth this idea and I just want to read these few paragraphs:
Just for a moment, allow yourself to toy with a possibility: What if our fear is actually causing the violence in the world, not the other way around? What if by healing our own inner fear we could actually heal the entire planet?
And what if the “angels,” talking so clearly through us, could guide us with step-by-step instructions for bringing peace into the world? Not just the global peace we all pray for, but the peace that begins within each of us.
For how can we bring peace to the planet if we can’t even settle the conflicts we have win our own mind?
So this fear that is rising within all of us, it’s natural, it’s normal, and I think we should welcome it. It’s a chance for us to empty our basements, as we say in Conflict REVOLUTION. To make sure that we do not repress emotion. But if you also think about that fear as our way to heal the planet, it’s our way to feel so deeply what everyone is feeling. You know that when you’re in emotion, you don’t see a lot of visual things. When you feel really deep into mourning, you lose track of the external world. So like Lily was saying before, she has these ups and downs. If we can just roll with them, we can actually be have a great influence on the world right now.
So this is a time to feel everything: cry if you need to, rage if you have to (don’t hurt anybody, including yourself). Go pound on some nails or stomp on some sidewalks. But redefine your emotion—so keep the emotion flowing, but also keep control over the Intellect. Keep control of those thoughts
Remember, channeling any emotion into a positive, powerful sacred thought fuels that thought into reality. So you don’t just need the “good” emotions to fuel the sacred thought. If you’re stomping on sidewalks, feeling and breathing a bunch of anger and thinking, “I release repressed emotions—I’m healing myself and the planet,” you’ll experience anger and process it much differently then if you keep thinking the degenerative, depressive thoughts that you are fueling with that fear.
If you can’t stop thinking those degenerative, depressive thoughts, step into your Witness and at least watch yourself. Watch yourself thinking those things. Observing yourself is the beginning of that change.
If there’s one thing that I could tell the world—funny thing about that—right now, it would be the importance of separating the Emotion from Intellect. Treat your Emotion and Intellect as differently as you would treat your heart and your stomach. Separate them. Deal with them as independent energies in this way that we’ve been teaching you for so long. That’s how we start to make these miracles. That’s how we start to influence what happens around us. It’s also what keeps us healthy and flowing, no matter what’s going on around us.
So maybe we can take this time to settle in, start to breathe.
We will command that only the most divine light shine down upon you at this time and the greatest good be present here.
We will add our voice of gratitude and thanks to all of you who are listening at whichever time you might be. We are broadcasting today on April 26, 2020 from a place of sheer joyful potential. This joy that we are feeling where we are has to do with a completely nonlinear definition of what the post virus world is.
Our nonlinear experience has always been that way—our communication with you and through Barbara and bridging the gap between the physical and the non physical—we have always been in that nonlinear place. But now you, more than ever, are as well. All of you are being forced to live in a state where the voices of culture that we’ve talked about for ad infinitum are so intensely wrapped up in fear.
This fear—even if you intellectually get the wild horses of your intellect—out-of-control horses—if you get them into alignment, this fear exists still, still in its deep, repressed format. The intention of understanding this is the transformation. It is about the transformation of the entire human species. We’ve been saying that for so long. It sounds, even not too long ago, grandiose. But now you can see on a very tactile level what it is that we’re referring to, of the entire human species. Each and every human on the planet at this time has a relationship to this new energy.
Those of you who have been nurturing your identity with the nonphysical; those of you who have been able to invite your own death into your consciousness and understand and face your death before it ever happens and embrace it; for those of you who believe in changing from within in order to manifest what changes from without: you have a little bit of a head start on even evolved people. But so much of humanity is not anywhere near where you are.
This time that you’re in is really being dictated by the Earth. [This change] is originating in the Source, in the center of the planet. This change that’s being manifest outside yourself as a virus, this is going to be felt in every single human because it is sourced in the center of the earth. But as you hear us talk again, this is how it always is. But this change that needs to happen is a collective from every human being that’s been on the planet, every incarnation of every human being that’s been on the planet. It’s like it’s its own little atomic bomb that went off without actually destroying the surface of the planet, destroying the trees and the waters (all of that is taking place, mind you).
So in this change the important steps that you’re taking right now cannot be stressed. We cannot stress enough to every individual within earshot of our voice that now more than ever, to accommodate these perspectives in yourself are going to be your guiding light. Never before has it ever been more true that if you choose to make decisions that are not for the good of the whole, that will lead to your destruction. To your own destruction.
On a practical level, if you desperately need to rest and your Intellect is not making decisions for the good of the whole and is ignoring your intuitive impelling to please get some rest, get some rest for the good of everything that’s going on, and you keep driving yourself—that’s not for the good of the whole. That’s what creates the repressed emotion. It’s what creates the weakened immunity, the stress. In that inner world, that’s what changes your outer world, when you practice this kind of perspective. By practicing this kind of perspective, that’s what changes your outer world.
That’s why we say that the condition of what you’re going to experience in this new world is totally going to be based on the condition of your experience of your relationship to yourself. The condition of your relationship with yourself. There are many other things that you can look at during this time. You can take classes. You can enjoy live music. You can catch up on old movies you’ve wanted to see. There’s all sorts of things out there that you can or can’t do during this time. But what you do inside right now will have such a profound affect upon your life and also this growing new world that you’re making.
We want to stress that, more than ever, this is a time to focus on being the love, on being the one who is generous, on being the one who is working for the good of all. This time to build those things is so profound. One of the reasons is because, whether you all know it or not, you’re more susceptible because of the lack of patterns and habits, because of the lack of customs and familiarity. That has opened up this vast amount of space and unsurety and that vacuum that gets created right before creation. Right during creation.
While you’re moving through all of this, the simplicity of taking one step, one step, one step … we can’t obviously stress that enough either, in terms of the importance of self love in the sacred transcendence. This sacred transcendence is you. It’s fitting, too, and apt with the Easter season. Coming awake and then realizing this is your job. This is your calling. This is your life. These are your thoughts, these are your senses, these are your feelings. These are your actions and decisions. That’s what should be coming first and foremost: the mastery over all of those things. Because once you align in that way and you’re running the system on that intuitive power—the power of your Emotion, which is attached to Compassion, your fifth fundamental force of the universe that brings the intelligence to create the entire universe—that is within you. it’s all starting within you.
To that end, back to the virus: it’s beginning within you as well. As Barbara had said, what if fear were actually causing the catastrophes of the world instead of your fear being because of? This is an opportunity for all of you to feel that—when you have this deep abundance of deep emotion without a lot of thought behind it. You’re just feeling, feeling and breathing. By releasing this fear, you are cleaning up the non-physical conflicts and repression. You’re helping to move the entire energy into this new creation. You’re doing this for your grandchildren and their grandchildren. Because that’s the way organically and miraculously and yet, synergistically, human beings are going to push passed the point of extinction.
In throwing yourselves up on the land as fish in order to become amphibious, you are doing the same thing now—the emotion around who makes it and who is able to breathe in in transforming the physical body from breathing in with [gills] to changing that into adapting and breathing into lungs so you can walk on land. How quickly did that adaptation take place? What we’re saying to you is that the state that all of you are in, you are already—you have these new lungs to breathe in. Now it’s just a matter of your own acceptance of your power.
Part of what we hope gets stripped away from this habitual thinking and voices of culture is this idea that money is somehow a greater power than anything else in the world. We understand that money can buy a lot of things. But money can’t buy a lot of things. In the end, it’s the things that money can’t buy that you’re going to end up with, not the things that money can buy. The importance of adapting to this new understanding of life including trading and bartering also includes, with those of you with an abundance of money, being able to help those who need money for particular things. Those of you with an abundance of time and talent can give that to particular people. This idea of the money-based society can be at least within you, at least within your value—not that you don’t have to live in it, but you don’t have to be of it. You don’t have to be a victim to it, using other agencies that you have to be able to manifest those things.
These are all the powers of this new human consciousness. And you’re living and breathing it. To us, that’s far, far, far more important than fame or having a great deal of money or having huge followings of people to distract from the work that we’re doing so intently here in the laboratory. This work we hope will go on for a very long time. But we have to admit that we, too, are exceptionally grateful for having Barbara’s voice for this time. We hope for many years ahead for collaborations but she is not the only one. We hope that through our work with her we can open up channels to other people who also can hear and can be influenced by the greatest good that we are presenting here.
In that sense, our mission is also expanding in this time when humans are facing everything. When you get in deep feeling, the physical world disappears. You know that if when you’re going through the very worst of some loss or tragedy or pain or mourning, the wave of emotion comes over you. Suddenly you don’t even see the world around you. That’s where we meet, is the clarity.
In an odd way, in the center of the earth, the source—before the physical world where it’s all mathematics and consciousness in the nonphysical—we are seeing more and more people like yourselves who are aware, while they still have a body, that they are also awake in the clarity! This is very exciting for us. Perhaps for all of you, too! You’re experiencing that same kind of opening in your personal lives, where people you have loved who have passed on are very much alive and active. There’s a lot of joy going on over here! Not because we celebrate the suffering of human beings, but because we’ve seen a lot of transformation in the whole history of the planet and human beings. We’ve seen a lot of things change, through wars and death camps—we’ve seen a lot happen on the planet. This is a culmination of bringing all that together to then see what’s going to happen here now in the this new, complete, utterly virgin flowerbed, garden plot of manifestation.
We hope, as we always do, that we can inspire you to take that sacredness about life very seriously these days. Search for pushing yourself passed your little human, limited self and into your Superhuman capacity. Understand that you redefine how you describe what is real and what is not. You redefine your life to be sacred.
That’s your choice. That’s your power. We’ve tried to lead you there. We are so honored to have you listening and thinking and working and doing in this way with us. So thank you so very much.
With all of that said, we would be willing to open at this time for questions and conversations.
ROBIN: Wonderful. Thank you, Barbara. Joanne did you have a question?
JOANNE: I don’t know if it’s a question. Yes. Some time ago—quite awhile ago—in one of the channels that Einstein did, he made mention of at one point, we would all have a magic box—Tesla—Tesla energy free-for-all kind of thing, that would power everything. I am so looking forward to that. Oil was trading at -$37 a barrel the other day, which is ridiculous, but it had to do with future contracts and so on. They quickly rectified that, so the next day it was trading at $4 a barrel. Our economy in Canada is really oil-based, a lot of it anyway. The entire province of Alberta is just gasping because that’s big there. The Tar Sands are a horrible, horrible place. There’s so much oil stored on the earth that’s already been taken out of the ground. Can you speak to any of that? How we’re going to get away from the fossil fuels, the damage they do, and into clean energy?
PARTY: Yes, part of the importance of what’s happening right now is that you’re seeing it. You’re seeing it happen before your eyes. You’re experiencing what would it be like if the fossil fuel era died. This is one of those evolutionary “fish throwing yourself up onto the land” type of moments. Let’s take a look at the Tar Sands and what made the Tar Sands.
Very much like Adolf Hitler had admonished us to understand that he couldn’t have done it alone, there’s a lot of people who participated in creating this—basically raping and pillaging. It’s a cancer is what it is. So you’re seeing the earth as a cell that is being ravaged by cancer. There are certain things that make cancer happen (we won’t go into the depth of what they are) but we could go back to this cancer of our environment to say that it took a lot of people, who drove trucks and worked in the facility. There is no judgment upon any of those people. Hopefully, we don’t judge any of the people who’ve done anything only for their own good. But yes, if you make decisions for the good of the few at the expense of the many, you create a cancer.
These people may or may not have felt like they had choices, if you’re a very poor person living in Alberta, and you can make a lot of money driving something for the oil company to feed your family—again, no judgment. But ultimately—and this is what you are all facing in your own lives—ultimately, now, when the fossil fuel era is drawing to a close, that there’s casualties from that change. There’s a lot of unemployment from that closing down of that. So there’s a lot of people—so think about that channel, this is a time of building anew. There are people who are being faced with this. Everybody has the same challenge. Some of your ships are better equipped than others of your ships, it’s true.
If you’re in a ship that’s well equipped, it doesn’t do you any good not to feel worthy of it or to beat yourself up because somebody else doesn’t have as nice of a ship as you do. Maybe you made decisions along the way that planned for that. Maybe it’s just the grace of god that you happen to be in a good place. Whatever it is, there are people who won’t be. They will have to reap the rewards and the down trodden experiences of those changes. Those people in those oil fields are some of them.
Yet, as everything begins to grow back, the Earth takes care of itself. It adapts to the loss of oil. It changes and becomes something just as organic only in a different fashion as it was. It takes time to heal some of the damage, but not nearly as much time as ever thought.
As humans begins to see themselves as the human cancer to the Earth, then that changes in deeper ways. Like we were saying, if you can’t stop the wild horses of your Intellect, at least step out into your Witness and watch them run. Observing them will change them. Understanding yourselves as the potential to be the cancer, you have a choice as to how you’re going to change that. Some will be very hard choices if you’re accustomed to what had been. For some people, it won’t hardly seem much of a difference.
But all of the other technology is there.
JOANNE: Thank you. Yes, I think a lot of the technologies been suppressed by the oil companies.
JOANNE: Yeah, so yes, I’m so looking forward to that.
ROBIN: Thank you, Joanne. I also have a question but I want to see if anyone else on the call would like to ask a question.
Thank you so much for that dissertation. I really appreciated how you described the repression of fear and how fear being the Source vs what we’re experiencing. I would like to be someone that offers support for others. You had mentioned that a lot of people aren’t in the same place. I’d like to be someone that helps continue on this work and this message and support others. So I’m curious if there’s any particular way in which we can do that, knowing the state of consciousness that they’ll be coming to us with. So any advice you have on that I would welcome.
PARTY: We would say that one of the most effective ways is to get up every day and put yourself into service to God. You do a sacred transcendence morning ceremony, where you’re going to recognize your deity. You’re going to push your human self past its limitations. For you, you know that means that living in alignment to Compassion is the ultimate condition. It’s not achieving something outside yourself. It’s your own commitment to aligning your own energy to Compassion, no matter what’s going on. That’s such a different focus than “hang out a shingle.”
Then when you get up and you’re putting yourself in service—“I want to be in service, how can I help, where can I help?”—all throughout the day there’s a little voice in the head that’s going, where can you help, how can you help, without having to be afraid that you’re going to give away everything because you’re codependent. That fear doesn’t have to be there because you’re relying on Intuition and you’re asking for direction from it. How can I really be of the best service here today? What can I do to be in the best service?
That’s just a rudimental level. There’s any other number of ways to help people without any formal structure by just being that “how can I be helpful.” When you get into a situation with somebody who is maybe in need … again, it doesn’t become, “Oh here I have to take care of you,” helpful in that old way where you would just take over doing something because it was co-dependent. You’re listening. You’re feeling and you’re listening to that person and their needs. You’re so taking care of yourself that you’re not giving away stuff that you don’t have to give away in a codependent fashion.
Instead the creativity is going, so you’re thinking, “if I don’t have that resource, do I know anybody who would have that resource,” for whatever level, whether it’s spiritual guidance … if it’s food … if it’s any possible need that somebody might be having or is looking for a resource for.
Living that way is going to lead you into those sacred directions. Directions that are the result of you being reverent and devoted to your self love. Directions that are going to influence how those needs get met for that person or for yourself. As far as the practical, tactile, (we’ve said this, too, for, many years) there is never a lack of places that and people who need help and assistance. Anywhere. As long as you’re open to wanting to help them, then you will be able to find your way into service.
ROBIN: Thank you so much. Joanne did you have another question?
JOANNE: I’m watching the news every day now. Everybody seems to be banking on the discovery of a vaccine as the way to finally overcome this. I’m not one of those people. I’m totally in agreement with fear is the cause, not the effect—it’s both, but it’s the cause. That’s totally along the lines of what I feel.
When you talked about the fish throwing itself up on the—that wonderful analogy that you talk about. That is exactly what is causing this problem. It’s that same mechanism in the body that the fish had, way back then. 0:52:55.9 [inaudible] to retain water until the next wave comes. That’s what causes pneumonia. That’s the one thing that causes the fluid build up in the lungs.
So it’s interesting to watch how all this is going on and how so many resources are being applied to protective equipment. People are literally killing themselves working in the medical field. They’re all rushing to form this vaccine. They’re all cooperating at least. That’s one thing we’re seeing—everybody is cooperating and sharing information.
I am curious to see how that’s going to play out. I’m hoping they are not going to make everybody get a vaccine that I don’t believe in. Any comments?
PARTY: It’s important to understand that everyone is going to have their relationship to this virus. It’s true, there are great many people who share the same view of what to do about this virus in the short term [pro-vaccination]. But everyone sees it through their filter.
There are those who see [staying at home orders] as a total disrespect of constitutional rights, so they take action because of that. There are those who see it as God’s punishment from some biblical proportion. If they think that is true, then God has blessed them for being in there [with Him]. There’s the doctors and the nurses on the front lines who see it as the very worst, truly, of what it is, for whatever reason that it is. There’s people like Barbara who aren’t necessarily personally affected by it, and to a greater extent than most, not affected by the isolation of it.
You will have to pick your relationship to it. One of those things is, you are not alone in the number of people who will not want to be mandatorily vaccinated. No matter how much the people who see it as something that needs to have an outside vaccination for think they are right—that you are somehow endangering them by not getting your vaccination—these are the issues that culture is going to be forced to deal with.
The mandatory may be resisted consciously by many. The system has to change to accommodate that. Either it gets more tyrannical, or it gets looser. Those are part of why we’re stressing the self love and pushing yourself into being a deity, and populating the planet with those who would help to manifest the dissolution of the fear for the natural, organic manifestation of the healing of the humans on the planet. Because you’ll see. The planet will heal without the humans. We’re about healing the planet with the humans on it. This is your work at hand.
JOANNE: That’s great. I’ve often thought the planet could happily spit humanity off with no problem and that would serve us right. As another Aquarian, I always laugh when I remember the key phrase, the Aquarians are all about humanity, but not so keen on people. That makes for a lot of good revving opportunities for me.
ROBIN: Thank you, Joanne. I like to think of it as opportunity for us to be a part of the Earth as we’ve been taught so well here in this space—the energy coming through the Source, up and through us. That’s what’s so beautiful about that message.
If we bring together the answers to your question, Joanne, and my question, asking how we can be of service, allowing that to come through us, it brings another question about the fear being the root. I go down in the Source about what you said today: how the virus is created in the Source and it’s like an atomic bomb that has come up through the system being caused by the fear. Is it primarily the fear of death that has been going on for millennium that has been causing this abscess to come up through? Or is it fear of that goes beyond that?
PARTY: On a very rudimental level, it’s a fear of death that has accumulated for the all the time that human consciousness has evolved. Every time someone dies and then gets reborn, there’s also the fear of being reborn. There’s a fear of going from this infinite, non-physical space into a very tiny, small, cramped space that has you forgetting basically who you are, having to face what life has to throw at you, like what you’re going through right now.
That fear is not something that plants have, or soil. Even if there were a big, volcanic explosion and the Earth was disrupted, the soil wouldn’t have fear. The lava wouldn’t have fear. Fear is a human experience. It’s natural, it’s normal. It’s part of what we’ve always said: if the polar bear is chasing you to eat you, your fear is what inspires your intuition to make your feet run.
Anxiety is fear that traps itself with some thoughts to really lock up the fear into a thought process. But fear itself is natural. Every time you have died a terrible death or not wanting to die or being afraid of death, you take that back down the rabbit hole into the Source. The more you can detach from any kind of, A) judgment or B) construct around the fear, the more you just let it flow. Create your own construct of sacred affirmations of transcendence. You can [still] be feeling that fear.
When you’re really in your fear and you step into Witness to observe that you’re in your fear, then you can make a different decision about what you’re going to think. You step into that Witness of yourself being afraid. Then you see the thoughts: “doom, doom, doom,” or “I’m no good” or all that stuff. Now you’ve changed it a bit.
But then separate the two [the emotion of fear from the thoughts of why you are afraid] and put a construct that has a sacred, honoring ceremony of your love for yourself and the universe. It can be overwhelming in a profound way when you realize, wow, I have the ability to release this fear in the Source of the planet for the whole planet if I just love myself and let myself feel it. Then it transforms faster than if you’re feeling the fear and it’s attaching to the degenerative “doom doom doom,” self-degrading definition. It will hang itself up there just burning energy, making you suffer.
When you actually practice and open in this way, you can keep releasing it. If more and more people can do this, especially right now, the planet and humanity stand a chance.
ROBIN: Oh, that’s very helpful. I think it’s brought a lot of clarity to me this morning. A visual to store in the memory with it. So I greatly appreciate that. Are there any final questions?
JOANNE: I would like to echo that sentiment. That was the best, clear description ever. I’m going to re-listen to that one. I’ve recorded it, of course, being the scribe. That was great, thank you.
PARTY: Then we will close the channel with a couple of thoughts. One is, the gratitude is overwhelming on our side of what’s going on here. We knew when we started this experiment back with Kim and Teresa and Barbara and the groups, we knew we were breaking some ground back then that wasn’t going to be coming into full fruition until years later. Now that that era is over and there’s this absolutely brand new era, we are looking forward to the same kind of impact.
We want to reiterate the idea that there is absolutely nothing wrong, nothing that hasn’t been fulfilled, nothing that should have been happening that isn’t as far as listening to these voices. To practice on yourself, to become sacred transcendents is here. Recognize it, that you’re living in it.
You are the change. Really, if you doubt that, just watch and be amazed.
Happy birthday to Albert Einstein

Since our first 2017 Re-Boot Session last month, I have been consciously focusing on the intentions I set, one of which is becoming more dedicated to my spiritual practice. For me, that means using Conflict REVOLUTION® to stay in a place of compassion no matter what comes my way.
Where I need focus is on applying compassion to people who are doing evil things. It’s easy to be loving to those I agree with but equally as easy to project my righteous anger over those I see committing injustices and taking actions for the good of the few at the expense of the many (Einstein’s definition of evil).
My biggest challenge right now is the US political environment. In the first Re-Boot I named my conflict “The Trigger of Trump.” So many people are so angry about the new president and his sweeping orders. And why not? They truly are evil. Last week, he instigated a travel ban on Muslims, leaving thousands of people stranded, sometimes in their home airports. When they left the country with their green cards, they were legal; when they returned, they were not. This is outrageous!
Arriving back from a short trip to Jamaica, I turned the corner from customs at the Baltimore International Airport only to find throngs of angry people protesting the injustice of this travel ban. I was simultaneously shocked and delighted to see so many people standing up to support those being unjustly impacted by this presidential action.
But the travel ban was not my trigger. The challenge came when a friend said something about the “haters.” She quoted someone who said, “Don’t try to convince the haters … you’re not the Jackass Whisperer.” This triggered me.
* * *
As I grapple with these issues, I am constantly reminded of what Albert Einstein lived through during WWII. He must have struggled deeply as he watched the haters gain control of his government and eventually destroy millions of people in the holocaust. He has often said that it was Hitler who brought him off his stance of pacifism and inspired him to urge the development of the atomic bomb. Who can blame him? What else was he to have done in the face of the evil that Hitler was manifesting?
But what are we to do today?
If I am to uphold my spiritual practice, then to call [fill in the blank, in this case the “haters”] [fill in the blank, in this case “jackasses”] makes me judgmental, too. Yes, even this small morsel of expression becomes projection of my judgment and needs my loving attention. But what am I to do with my anger at the real injustices of evil without becoming ineffectual to it?
I know, it’s exceedingly intricate and intimate. But if I believe we are all one organism then what I give is my legacy to my fellow humans. Why would I want to do unto others what I do not want them to do unto me?
This doesn’t mean I allow myself to be abused by haters. It means to feel and breathe my anger, revolve my perspective, and take responsible for my own thoughts/decisions /judgments first. Detaching my anger from projecting judgments on others is exercising compassion. I literally become the change. Instead of projecting judgment, I marry that anger through breath to compassionate, positive intellectual messages and set my intention to be a part of a creative solution for the good of all.
By taking control of my own thoughts, feelings, senses, and intentions in this way, I practice self-love and align to compassion. Now that compassion can intuitively guide me to the action that will help right the evil in the world around me.
After Einstein arrived in the US (an immigrant), Joseph McCarthy, the right-wing senator who was conducting the communist witch hunts targeted him, calling him an “enemy of America.” Einstein’s response was that he was willing to go to jail for his convictions and compared McCarthy’s fascist rise to that of Hitler in Germany. He also advised others targeted by McCarthy to simply refuse to answer the questions. He never advocated hate or violence against anyone.
Below is Einstein’s comments made during a five-minute CBS Radio Network program hosted by journalist Edward R. Murrow sometime in the 1950s. Here he says that “service to our fellow man needs to take the place of the glorification of power” (another way of saying “making decisions for the good of the whole”):
Let’s face it, there are no easy answers. I certainly don’t have the answers to this current crisis of compassion going on in my government.
I will say that we need to find solutions outside the level of thinking at which the conflicts are being created. For me, this means experimenting with my own energy to become love as much as is humanly possible.
From there I will choose to stand up and project that love out into the world, without losing sight of the realities of the rising fascism we are now faced with. It means refusing to hate the haters. Or even call them names.
I have succeeded in re-focusing on my spiritual practice, just like I intended. The byproduct is I am more at peace. I sleep better knowing I am self-responsible, committed to compassion and to taking action for the good of all. This makes me part of the solution.
And that’s a gracious plenty.

My friend the history teacher lent me the Texas Teachers Edition of the world history curriculum taught at his high school as a way to prepare me for my trip to Romania and Hungary. Forget that it’s 998 pages, weighs more than my car and makes my ADHD all goofy with so much information on a single page. The tome just sitting in my lap vibrates with the history of the entire world from the beginning of civilization at 4 billion years BC right up through Homeland Security.
I turned to Chapter 31, “Years of Crisis 1919-1939.” Under the heading “Age of Uncertainty” was a picture of Einstein along with a sidebar about Freud. The caption under Al was about how his genius was partly due to his tenacity to stick with a problem until he solved it. Freud was credited with the idea that much of human behavior is beyond reason.
I was after the answer to a question: what happened that so many people could propagate Nazi Germany and what would one do if those circumstances arose again in current culture? What if, like Hitler and the Nazis, through the use of legal pathways a party rose to power so set on destruction and domination that it might arrange its own terrorist attack to kick off martial law? What did the ordinary citizens of Germany do during these so-called “Years of Crisis” as they watched Hitler march the Nazis on a blazing trail of human destruction?
Hitler pushed Einstein off his pacifist stance. Though he was using his rock star status to promote world peace, Einstein the pacifist did not know a way to face Hitler. And who can blame him?
What Einstein did know was that Hitler could not have done it alone. It required a mass effort on the individual parts of the Third Reich. The hearts of so many men and women had lost their moral compass. Is this his lament “It is easier to denature plutonium than to denature the evil spirit of man?” How does one get to the root of that kind of degeneration?
In these turbulent days, it’s sometimes difficult to believe any one of us can make a difference. What kind of impact can one human have against the terrorists, errant governments, and systems of culture that strive to keep citizens dull witted and unaware of the lies and nefarious dealings of subversive fundamentalists? Because according to the history book, this kind of behavior has gone on since humans first emerged from the apes.
It seems to me it can only begin within each individual, committed to looking at one’s own life to see where we might be driven by fear to inadvertently fall into lockstep with the voice of authority outside ourselves. It is our duty and responsibility to find our inner moral compass, align to compassion and learn how to measure our actions against it. We must quit lying to ourselves and refuse to propagate the “US vs THEM” mentality.
I believe Conflict Revolution® is the formula to denature our evil spirits, one person at a time, starting with self. And who else but Einstein would find a way from beyond the grave to create a simple formula to align our actions to compassion? Who else could come up with a scientific definition of love? Talk about sticking with a problem until it’s solved!
The beginning of the 20th century was indeed a time of great change and uncertainty. Einstein had brought forth E=MC2, which threw everything science had known into a new paradigm. Freud was dealing out concepts of the unconscious that had never been considered, putting psychology into new realms of thinking. Europe was spiritually, emotionally, and economically depressed and uncertain. People were disillusioned and hopeless. Their answer was to follow the leader, who eventually led them into ruin. People believed the lies, overlooking their own instincts.
Let’s not blindly follow some leader in times of insecurity. Let’s use those times to really examine our motives, our decisions, and ourselves and see where we can become the change. Where are you lying to yourself?
We have so much more power than we can even imagine. Let’s use it to create peace within. According to my imagined Einstein, when we do that we help reprogram the gravitational waves that manifest the Earth.
What’s it going to hurt to self-scrutinize? Knowledge is power, after all. So what will it take to get you to stand up and become the change?
