I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the 102 quote comes from Chapter Seven and the section on when we go too far from normalcy in a system it acts oddly:

When we go too far from normalcy in a system it acts oddly

As we have said before through this instrument, what we see as we gaze into the mind and the heart of your people as a global tribe is a troubling tendency to seek aggression and war instead of diplomacy and conversation. This tendency multiplied throughout a power-hungry world could result in your nation-states acting aggressively in such a manner as to set off a true doomsday with their bombs. This is possible.

And we would ask each of you to be aware of this tendency in the human heart toward aggression instead of patience insofar as you are able personally. We would encourage each of you to “choose communication over aggression, patience over impatience, love over fear, and hope over exclusion”.

What you as a person do may seem to begin and end within yourself. But we say to you that you act not only for yourself but for humankind. The choices that you make, if made purely and with conscious intention, can change the world.” Q’uo, April 16, 2006

Whether the system we are talking about is a family, a community, or a nation the normal interactions between the members of any system of people would include clear communication, diplomacy, patience, and compassion. This is the normal and hoped-for path to the resolving of disharmony and the cooperation of people for the attaining of respective needs. However, if there are deviations within the systems of entities of any size—especially nations–manifesting as impatience, selfishness, jealously, or greed, then aggression and violence become more likely, and the system of peoples involved will very likely act oddly, to say the least. So it was Q’uo’s recommendation that we “choose communication over aggression, patience over impatience, love over fear, and hope over exclusionand while doing so realize that this kind of a choice, when made with a conscious intention to do so, can actually change the world.

In the following quote Q’uo again mentions how aggression and violence could cause great deviations from a normal and harmonious way of life:

Imagine in the days to come—the tsunamis, the hurricanes, the earthquakes, all of those things that surround the end of an age in which the heat of aggression and war has been stored in the earth and must be allowed to be released—the opportunities that you will have to witness to the light. You may see for yourself as you gaze at the events occurring in your Earth world at this time that the great majority of entities of the tribe of humankind are just a heartbeat away from giving and loving and caring and living in the fourth density where you may feed those about you and where you may expect those about you to feed you.

Certainly what this instrument would call the “loyal opposition” is delighted to fly above the radar with war and rumors of war. We simply ask you not to be dismayed but to move down into the roots of your being, down into who you are and why you are here at this time. It is a precious opportunity which you have to serve the light and to ask, “What is Your will for me today, for I give this day to You. This is Your day. I am Your servant. Q’uo, January 23, 2010.

Q’uo reminded us that our Mother Earth’s population has engaged for thousands of years in wars that have stored the “heat of aggression” in the crust of our Earth. Looking at Mother Earth as the largest system we have in our third density, these millenia of wars are the actions most easily seen as the furthest away from normalcy that one can imagine. This heat of aggression must be released by our Mother Earth in order for Her to be able to accept and harmonize with the fourth-density vibrations which have been surrounding our Earth for many years now. As this heat is released we all have the chance to both feel sympathy for all who are victims of this released heat and to feel joy for the approaching light of fourth density which is the final outcome of this release of the heat of aggression.

Q’uo also revealed that our “loyal opposition” of negative entities are most happy with the inconveniences that are occurring due to this heat of aggression that is being released and which is causing fear and doom to overcome many who are aware the potential for destruction in the years to come. Instead of partaking in this kind of fear Q’uo recommended that each of us can play a very positive role in these events by remembering who we are as wanderers and seekers of truth and that we have come here to lighten the planetary vibrations and help to open the doors to the fourth-density vibrations of love and understanding. Each day we can ask the Creator what we may do to aid Mother Earth and Her children in welcoming a new way of being in the fourth-density vibrations.

With all of this in mind, Q’uo completed their quote by reminding us that each of us, as members of humankind, can change the world by how we behave with each other. If we can see that we are all one then it is easier to choose to love each other as we love ourselves, and do unto others as we would have them do unto us. Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie said it well:

We Are the World

U.S.A. for Africa

There comes a time
When we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
Oh, and it’s time to lend a hand to life
The greatest gift of all

We can’t go on
Pretending day-by-day
That someone, somewhere soon make a change
We’re all a part of God’s great big family
And the truth, you know, love is all we need

We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day, so let’s start giving
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day, just you and me

Oh, send them your heart
So they know that someone cares
And their lives will be stronger and free
As God has shown us by turning stones to bread
And so we all must lend a helping hand

We are the world…

Today is Thanksgiving which is supposedly the result of the three-day feast in 1621 between Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Native Americans. But as time has gone on in recent years Native Americans refer to this day as Thankstaking because as history has shown there has been terrible violence imposed on indigenous tribes ever since in the history of America. Their land has been taken from them and, for the most part, they have been relegated to small reservations in various parts of America, and they have no political power to change this situation. Hopefully, the Land Back Movement will be able to change this situation for the better. Wikipedia described the Land Back Movement like this:

“Land Back is a movement that aims to re-establish Indigenous political authority over territories Indigenous tribes and activist groups assert belong to them by treaty rights. Scholars from the Indigenous-run Yellowhead Institute at Toronto Metropolitan University describe Land Back as a process of “reclaiming Indigenous jurisdiction: breathing life into rights and responsibilities.

In addition to the transfer of deeds, Land Back includes respecting Indigenous rights, preserving languages and traditions, and ensuring food sovereignty, housing, and clean air and water.”

This afternoon I took advantage of the warmer weather and went outside to do a few small jobs. First, I checked the air pressure in each of Stanley’s tires and filled the two that were quite low. Then I cleaned the filters in the fish pond and got the pump connected to the UV light working again. My last job was to fill the fish pond with another few inches of water.

From A Book of Days, channeled by Carla L. Rueckert:

Trust That Within You

I am the spirit of the living God. I greet you in the full consciousness of the love of Jesus the Christ.

The difficulty which living within the physical shell of the body creates in understanding that the spiritual path is a path of plenty and light is that the outer circumstances of the path of light seem anything but comfortable.

There is truly a narrow path whereby one may maintain contact within the self with the spirit which enlivens all things. It is best not to look for evidence of the spirit’s work within men and within the world but, rather, faithfully to rest in the trust you have in that which is unseen but which has been as a beneficent wind moving across and guiding your voyage of seeking and discovery.

Those attitudes allow one to become aware of the simple joy available to one who is not limited by the definitions of self which the limitations of the body seem to impose. Accept and respect that within you which is moved by the spirit. And listen to the inner voice as to an honored guest.

We leave you in the peace of this process of living by faith, now and ever. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

We come in the name of Love and open our hearts, our minds, and our souls to send love, light, and healing energies to Mother Earth as she brings forth a New Earth in fourth density. We ask that the infinite love, light, and healing energies of the One Infinite Creator heal the heart of each soul in pain on Earth tonight. May all souls on Earth feel our love, light, and healing energies in their hearts, in their minds, and in their souls. Amen.
