Ambassador Jack Matlock made an important speech at the National Press Club on February 11. Matlock served as US ambassador to the Soviet Union during 1987-91. In his speech he describes how President Reagan won the trust of the Soviet leadership in order to bring to an end the Cold War and its risk of nuclear armageddon. http://www.larouchepub.com/eiw/public/2015/2015_1-9/2015-08/pdf/10-14_4208.pdf
Reagan’s meeting with Gorbachev did not rely on position papers written by staff. It relied on a hand-written memo by Reagan himself that stressed respect for the Soviet leadership and a clear realization that negotiation must not expect the Soviet leaders to do something that is not in the true interest of their country. The way to end the conflict, Reagan wrote, is to cooperate toward a common goal. Matlock said that Reagan refused to personalize disagreements or to speak derogatorily of any Soviet leader.
Matlock makes the point that Reagan’s successors have done a thorough job of destroying this trust. In the last two years the destruction of trust has been total.
How can the Russian government trust Washington when Washington violates the word of President George H.W. Bush and takes NATO into Eastern Europe and places military bases on Russia’s border?
How can the Russian government trust Washington when Washington pulls out of the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty and places Anti-Ballistic Missiles on Russia’s border?
How can the Russian government trust Washington when Washington overthrows in a coup the elected government of Ukraine and installs a puppet regime that immediately expresses hostility toward Russia and the Russian-speaking population in Ukraine and destroys Soviet war memorials commemorating the Red Army’s liberation of Ukraine from WW2 Germany?

Your freedom is within your ability to respond to Life in a way that keeps you open, strong, focused and aware. At first, as you learn to actively create your internal experience, it seems a lot to focus upon. It can feel overwhelming as you determine, “Am I open in this moment or strong?” Only to eventually discover that it must be both, though they feel so different at first.
It can seem disruptive to your peace as you must observe every detail and shape your choices based on a changing, sometimes chaotic, vibration. There is so much data coming at you and from you as you smooth your vibration into the flow of creation you are desiring. The lag time of manifestation often clouds the clarity of which thoughts and feelings led to which creation.
There are open, yet focused, avenues of creation that will assist the overwhelm and allow you to adjust with greater ease. You are part of the engine of Life. In human form, your physical brain structure disrupted the full understanding. Thus it becomes a path of experience as you learn from a new vantage point. Do you see the loving process in that? You created it, for you are of creation and powerful beyond the physical form. As you open to the deep knowing that Life is leading you toward your potential of thriving, you ease the tension of the mental responsibility and open to your natural ability of response – adjusting. Allowing is a loving state, and adjusting is a courageous choice. Continue reading
The recent alchemical theme directs source energy inside our cells to excite themselves, fermenting within the flesh, causing divine illumination of the personality. The inner mitochondrial membrane is activated enhancing its ability to produce ATP, which generates intracellular light. This corresponds to the Transfiguration of the fleshly body or the integration of our ego/personality with the inner light presence. When the inner light shines on the histories of the ego mind recordings, it is similar to shining a bright flashlight on the skeletons in the closet. If you did not realize those skeletons were hiding in there, it can be shocking and painful to see. However, this forces transformation of the mental body to open into new dimensions of consciousness, which align us to levels of divine Gnosis.Gnosis signifies spiritual knowledge in the sense of mystical enlightenment or deep insight into our spiritual self.
On the path of Ascension, we evolve through many stages of evolution, which help us to reach increasing mystical levels of higher knowing. This is not linear and cannot be explained or proven through methods acceptable to mainstream scientists. The function of our Soul-Spirit activation is accessed through higher sensory perception, which stems from deep and powerful feelings in the initiated consciousness.
Once initiated, we have knowing and we cannot go back to not knowing. This fact of knowing changes our consent. When we are conscious and aware of the forces we are interacting with, we must make choices about what we are doing in our life. If we have knowing and we continue to make choices based on fear, we will suffer. The choices we make when operating from the internal knowing of an initiate, change everything we have ever known as an identity. We are catapulted to place ourselves on the altar of faith and trust, moving into the realms of the unknown, which force us into moral and spiritual dilemmas. Continue reading
Humanity’s journey through the illusion has been long and painful as you have failed to recognize one another as siblings, as beloved children of God, and instead have engaged with each other in conflict, war, and deceitful practices due to the fear your apparent separation from God unleashed. For eons you have seen each other as threats and enemies whom you needed to attack or defend yourselves against, and the suffering you have experienced as a result of this enormous misperception has been most painful for you. Now this misperception is dissolving because so many of you have come to the understanding, through the painful experiences that you have undergone again and again and again, that this kind of behavior can never bring you the peace you are so urgently seeking
You still lack trust, and so, rather than loving one another – which is what you will do as the Love field enveloping you penetrates the hearts of even the most fear-driven among you – you are attempting to negotiate non violently to find a path to peace on Earth. This is in fact an enormously progressive step forwards for humanity because until very recently most believed that the only way to achieve any form of peace was through force of arms and firm suppression of those who could or might attack you. Peace through violence – what an oxymoron!
Since you started to practice negotiating non violently, it is becoming apparent to all involved that trust has to be established and clearly demonstrated, with absolutely no “wiggle room,” if your negotiations are to have any chance of success. And for many this is a difficult concept to grasp because trust has been betrayed as a matter of course for eons when those doing the betraying found themselves in positions of power over the betrayed and “wisely” took advantage of the situation. To trust was seen to be naïve and childish, a laying open of oneself to violation, an invitation to betrayal, something that even small children soon learnt was a very dangerous opportunity to offer to anyone.

Beloved Ones, Upon the world there is a quiet revolution of consciousness occurring. As each heart opens to the greater energy influx, they begin to recall their divine connections to each other. They begin to go within to sit in silence and solitude and ponder the true state of their being. They take the time necessary to understand that the world they are living on is rapidly changing and they are questioning why that should be. They seek to find the answers to their many questions and turn to the internet where they have the opportunity to try many key words that act as portals to volumes of information which instantly unfolds before them in the vast library of collective knowledge. They are seeking answers to what life is really all about, to the existence of spirit and as they do so they are discovering information that opens up an entire new reality for them. They discern that which rings true within their own heart and soul.
It is an uncomfortable discovery in many ways for they now begin to understand that each person upon the planet is responsible for their own choices and actions in each moment, that their soul is held accountable for all their deeds during their entire lifetime and that the world they thought was real was just an illusion projected by forces outside themselves. From this awareness comes awakening and the desire to know where they stand in the eternal scheme of things. This awareness opens exciting new pathways and they discover new possibilities for their lives. As their hearts open to new possibilities, they see that it only requires their attention, intention and diligence. Their horizon is expanded in many ways and they begin to explore new potentials for their lives, in new thoughts, new actions that they can take to make their life better than before.

“Trust in the True Self strengthens over time into faith. Faith is the victory. Or, as Helen Keller said, “Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light.” Let’s celebrate your light and our light this Solstice.” – I Lawrence
I woke up this morning with such a feeling of gratitude that I am alive, in a perfectly wonderful body, able to watch an incredible unfolding of events, and participate in a change of worlds. I know there are people who feel like they don’t belong in 3D, where there is pain, and inhumanity. It feels so abusive, and they dream of going ‘home’. I understand the longing, but I’m not into the idea that home is somewhere other than where I am.
I’m at home within my universe, acknowledging this journey as the ultimate experience. Where else would I want to be? Now, people might say that none of this experience is reality. That’s fine. If I’m an actor on the stage, then I’m putting my heart and soul into the play. This play is where the action is.
Like most of us, I have read the various versions of how this world ends and begins anew, but I haven’t seen it through inner vision. So it is a comfort to re-read Stuart Wilde’s words, offered a few years ago: “I was shown how it ends. I was very honored to see that. It was a happy ending, very clean. I understood why the meek inherit the earth, it made me cry for joy. They deserve it. It is all in a divine order, trust.” Continue reading
“Life offers no guarantees, no assurances that our love will be reciprocated, and no control over the outcome of our efforts. Living a big life, full of purpose, connection, and contribution, requires an unprecedented act of trust and vulnerability.” – D Mahle
I always wanted to belong; to feel connected, feel loved, feel alive. I wanted people to like me, to respect me, to recognize my contribution in the world. I wanted to do something worth remembering, to create something beautiful, to help heal the suffering. I wanted my life to matter. But I was afraid.
I didn’t know who I was. I didn’t feel my power. I didn’t trust my heart. I was anxious – afraid of failure, rejection, and isolation. And I felt stuck playing a small game in a big world that I knew needed my gifts, my skills, and my heart, now more than ever.
It wasn’t long ago that I discovered a lesson that is changing my life forever: When I believe that I am powerful, connected, and capable of love – beyond my wildest imagination – I am.
My fears are all illusions; ancient stories that my younger self created to ‘protect’ me from harm. The only way to release them is to honor them; to tell that younger place within me that I am safe now and I no longer need them to protect me.
When I deny or fight my fear, it strengthens its choke-hold. When I embrace it and give it space to breathe, it loses its power over me.
Fear is rooted in shame. Brené Brown defines shame as “the intensely painful feeling or experience of believing that we are flawed and therefore unworthy of love and belonging.” Shame is fueled by silence and the illusion of our fundamental separateness. Continue reading
There is never a time in your lives when you are without support. There is never a time in your lives when you must solve a single problem on your own. Yet so many of you struggle for solutions to life’s challenges without reaching for help from the heavens. We understand that you have been let down by other human beings and we understand that, at times, dear ones, you even expect disappointment from God.
Can you have help in your life? We would ask, “Are you willing to believe and receive?” In truth help is always there. God is always there. Your angels are always there. We want to help you. We want to make your lives easier. But it is up to you to decide how much we are allowed to assist. If you are praying for help, but in your depths have a belief that “no one listens,”or “no one cares,” then dear ones we can only help to a degree. Continue reading
“Paying attention to the way your body and spirit respond to Truth can become a very powerful personal tool from which to move through life. By attuning our physical, mental and emotional self to Truth, we grow in self-trust, as we no longer need to look outside ourselves for answers.” – L Young
How do you recognize and trust what is Truth? With so much conflicting information available to us on every imaginable topic, how do you discern what is Truth, what is fabricated, or just confused half truths?
Here are 5 simple steps to recognizing truth.
1. Go to the Source
The easiest way is to go to Source.
Truth is actually an energy, a formula and a principle of Source. Before it is articulated into specific information or “fact”, it is an energy and a specific frequency. Because it is an energy, it can bypass the human mind and organically be registered by the body and spirit for confirmation. Many times we “feel” the Truth of something and cannot even explain it. We just “know” it is right.
The more you are connected to Source, the easier it becomes to recognize TRUTH. It plugs you directly into the main power hub of its distribution throughout our Universe, free of any human interpretation or manipulation. It re-aligns you directly with the Truth of your Divine Self and Blueprint. By calibrating ourselves to this Divine hook-up, it is immensely easier to know and recognize Truth. Continue reading
