The Tipping Point

The sheer number of human beings on the planet at this time provides an engine of consciousness growth. That is because the volume of thought increases and amplifies. When the human population was a few thousands, the impact of human thought upon the planet’s natural cycles was minimal. But that has been changing rapidly.

Imagine that a grid of energy surrounds your planet, one for each species. This subtle energy is composed of thought, and it guides the formation of all of the earth’s structures and ecosystems, including the earth’s magnetic field. All physical structures are dependent upon thought templates. These templates are precursors, just as a blueprint for a house is the precursor to a house. When the architect hands you a blueprint for a house, you know it will be built because technicians and builders and materials exist that can come together to form the house.

And so too for the direction of humanity’s future on earth.

Each species has a grid and each species grid affects the others. The real action goes on “behind the scenes” as it were, as the dynamically changing grids modify their corresponding physical counterparts.

You have no idea how powerful your thought is.

Thought affects climate and weather, do you know that? When there is more anxiety, fear and hatred, this energy finds its way into the grid and eventually manifests itself in changing weather patterns. Of course this takes a while to happen, so there is a buffer of time before changes manifest. Nevertheless, humanity is writing it’s own script and to a large extent, the manifestations that appear in your planet’s ecosystems. The earth herself has her own rhythms and cycles, but these cycles can be affected by a dominant species like humanity. The species consciousness of humanity affects all of the other species grids, because human beings have the widest range or bandwidth of thought, and your grid is the most volatile. It is also the most powerful. That means that the animal, plant, and insect kingdom’s follow  your lead.

For example, the magnetic field of the earth results from the consciousness awareness of the living planet and the species that exist upon it. You are all cocooned within this field and your bodies respond to it.

Evolving templates of subtle energy exist within the species grids that determine how things grow. An avocado seed grows into an avocado, not a tomato. Why? Because that seed is surrounded by a precursor thought template that provides the blueprint for the formation of the plant. Nothing physical can form without a blueprint, just as a house cannot be built without a blueprint or a cake without a recipe. Because consciousness is involved in the process, however, and because consciousness can choose, and change its preferences (yes, even plants have consciousness) no two plants, insects, animals, or human beings are ever alike. Thought exists below even the quantum level, so changes in the species grids can affect biology on the micro and macro levels.

As the population of the human race continues to grow, eventually there will be reached what Malcolm Gladwell calls a “tipping point.” This tipping point  will occur when the species template for humanity becomes distinct enough and powerful enough to affect a chaotic change. By this is meant that the template becomes so complex and so dynamic that it creates the possibility for a quantum leap – a redefinition of initial conditions that can create an entirely new blueprint for your societies. Of course, it is entirely possible that the human race will continue on as before –– in the “follow the leader” mentality where hierarchical societies are the norm. There is a battle going on right now on your planet –– some have called it the battle between good and evil –– but the primary arena of this battle is being fought not in the streets but in the minds and hearts and consciousness of humanity.

There are those who live in fear and insecurity who are attempting to direct the thought of humanity along the same old lines. There are those who advocate ‘population control”. These individuals are not so much concerned with the depletion of resources as they are with the direction of the species blueprint. In which direction will you go?

Those who favor hierarchical societies (with themselves at the top, of course!) want to send you down a certain path. As the population grows, the greater the possibility for a quantum leap in consciousness ––  a tipping point –– which will formulate the new memes around which political and economic action will evolve. It is to your very great interest to allow growth of your populations until this tipping point is reached –– because when that point is reached, change will become effortless. Until the species grid becomes primed, or electrically activated through the energy of thought – change is extremely difficult, as anyone understands who has been involved in politics. That is why those of you who desire a new way of thinking and being for your species are having difficulty breaking through the currently established patterns of thought that have been so firmly established (some call this pattern of thought and belief “tradition”).  We want to encourage you never to abandon your dreams of prosperity, clean and abundant energy, compassion and tolerance. For this template is in your potential future. It exists as a more and more distinct possibility, if only you will continue to create it!

You still have a few years yet before the tipping point is reached. At that point, the predominant and most powerful memes will become the foundation for the new paradigm. It is at these times that great changes can be made on a planetary scale  –– and only at these points. Such planetary cycles occur regularly on earth. This time, however, because of the very great increase in population, there exists the possibility of a truly magnificent turnaround in the species consciousness of humanity.

Do you wonder why species are disappearing at such a rapid rate?  These species grids are evolving rapidly in response to the growing power of the human species grid. The power increase in the species grid of humanity spills over into the entire system, charging it and changing it. After the denouement, powered by humanity’s evolving consciousness, these species may reappear in altered form, new species will introduce themselves, and some species may not return.

This is the most exciting time to be on earth. The planet is approaching the close of a planetary cycle of consciousness and evolvement. Remember that the script has not been written and that you are writing it –– literally, each one of you is determining not only your own personal future, but the future of humanity and of the planet itself. At these supercharged “tipping points”, the direction of your evolvement is most sensitive to a change in thought. The moment you have all been waiting for is rapidly approaching. Keep your thoughts aligned to that which is your divine nature, and watch as the planet evolves suddenly in a new direction.


The LOA and Money

In my article “Politics: Bread and Circuses,” I assert that politics as it is practiced today is essentially a deception that hides an underlying economic reality. The fundamental reason for the existence of any established political party (like the Democrats and the Republicans) is to establish and maintain access to money and resources.

In this article, we will explore how the Law of Attraction relates to economics, and especially to money.

There have been many great books and articles written on how to become prosperous. I don’t want to go over that ground again, because I’ve already done so in a course called “The Keys to Deliberate Creation.” However, I think it is very important to understand how the Law of Attraction relates to economics and money in a more traditional, political setting. That is because governmental policies can affect the supply and value of money! When “times are tight,” there is either too much money in circulation, creating rising prices, or there is not enough money, causing a credit crunch. This is simply the operation of the natural law of supply and demand. Either way, it is important to know how money works!

Of course we can say, accurately, that application of the Law of Attraction to one’s personal life will always result in prosperity. But folks, let’s face it: all of us are affected, in some way, by the value and integrity of our currency! I believe it is vital for spiritually aware persons to be aware of fundamental economic truths that affect us all. After all, we are part of this society and we should understand how it works!

Let’s start by analyzing how money gets created. The U.S. government has had surpluses and deficits since the end of World War II, but overall has spent more than it makes. The Office of Management and Budget predicts that by the year 2012, the national debt of the United States will be 11.466 trillion dollars. This figure does not account for unfunded liabilities like Social Security. Last month, the Congress sanctioned a raise in the Statutory Debt Limit of $850 billion to 9.815 trillion dollars. This will cover spending through the end of the 2008 fiscal year. Remember that a government’s income is dependent upon how much tax revenue it can collect. However, raising taxes is a great way to get yourself un–elected! So Congress takes the easy way out, by simply printing more money.

It is a startling fact that the money we use is monetized debt. It has no value whatsoever. Today, money is not backed by anything tangible, other than the “full faith and credit of the United States.” What does that mean? It means the future work, sweat and productivity of the American people. If all dollar denominated loans and debts were paid off, all of our money would disappear. Therefore, even if Congress wanted to pay off the national debt, it could not do so without destroying the economy!

Look at the top of any bill of any denomination, and you will find “Federal Reserve Note.” Do you know what a note is? It is a promise to pay, a certificate of debt. The money we use are just fancy IOU’s.

So how does money get created? Well, the Federal Reserve creates it out of thin air! The process is complicated and obscure, so we won't go into it here. Suffice it to say that In cooperation with Congress, the Fed funds any governmentally created liabilities simply by printing/creating more money. Wouldn’t it be nice, if you were short on your bills next month, to have a printing press in your basement? Can you see where that would lead if everyone did it? You would have lots more money chasing the same amount of goods and services, and prices would rise.[1] In other words, the value of every dollar buys less and less, and that’s why prices rise. You have to work harder to maintain your standard of living.

The Law of Attraction tells us that when demand for something rises, we become vibrationally attuned to it, and so we get more of it. If more and more people demand prosperity, the economy will respond appropriately. The difficulty is that one of the dominant memes in human consciousness is scarcity. What happens when there are conflicting desires for prosperity within a vibration of scarcity? Exactly what we see happening in the U.S. economy at the moment. When you want something but don’t really believe you can have it, you take a “vibrational shortcut.” This has resulted in our current economic state, where a false prosperity is achieved by the creation of more and more money. The attractiveness of this false solution is that at first, the increased money supply DOES buy more goods and services! Until, of course, manufacturers and service people begin to be charged more and more for their raw materials. Then the price of everything goes up. Don’t look for understanding of these concepts in the general media, or even in the business and economic press.

In order to have prosperity in your personal life, even when the currency is being debased, you have to

1)  understand what money is

2)  focus on something you love and do it!

When you understand money, you won’t be frightened by media scares about rising prices, because you understand the underlying causes of inflation.  For those who are interested, you can read this book called “The Creature From Jekyll Island,” which explains the Federal Reserve, and money, in great detail. You can also read my e–Book, “What Is Money?” which is included in the 4 e–book collection called “The Path to Personal Power.

When you truly focus on prosperity (not just a wish for more money) you will be prosperous, no matter what the economy does.  The best way to start is to find something you love and do it. The Law of Vibration tells us that prosperity can only manifest within a vibration that supports it.

Money is not prosperity! Money is the by–product, or representation, of a vibration of prosperity. When you study up on money you will see that modern–day money isn’t truly money at all. It’s an idea of money. As such, it is becoming closer and closer to thought itself. Therefore, the greater is your understanding of universal principles, the more likely it is that you will have success.

Your internal dialogue about money and prosperity will tell you exactly where you are on the subject of abundance! Don’t lie to yourself. If you feel a vibration of scarcity within you, then changing your state of being about it is your first order of business. You can’t fool the laws of the universe! When you begin to feel prosperous, you will begin to manifest prosperity, despite what the economy is doing, or the Fed is doing, or what “everyone knows.” Fortunately, universal laws are senior to man–made laws, and you have access to them 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

For an in–depth, practical  discussion of the Law of Attraction and the Law of Vibration, see the book “The Vibrational Universe.

[1] Here’s an historical example: The Continental Congress, beginning in 1775, simply printed money to fund the colonial rebellion. By 1779, the Continental, which was worth 1 dollar in gold in 1775, was trading for less than a penny. A loaf of bread cost $5,000! In a letter to Samuel Cooper in 1779, Benjamin Franklin wrote,  “This Currency, as we manage it, is a wonderful machine. It performs its Office when we issue it, it pays and clothes Troops and provides Victuals and Ammunition, and when we are obliged to issue a Quantity excessive, it pays itself off by Depreciation.”
