A New World
"Behold, I will create new heavens and a new earth.
The former things will not be remembered,
nor will they come to mind." Isaiah 65:17:
"Shimmering. Yes, Like swimming in moonlight,"
that is how the Cherokee Indian, Dane,
describes the real world,
which is the spiritual world."
As you know we are living in troublesome times, with much talk of war but since this is a website for good news, I would like to talk about peace, how it is possible to achieve peace in individual hearts, and eventually in the world.
Humanity for the most part is still at what Ken Wilber*, calls the mythic membership of consciousness which first began around 12,000 B.C.E. However this is quickly changing. For the past several decades the consciousness of the human race has been evolving to the “mental egoic” level of consciousness and finally, (and as also described in the book, “The Celestine Prophecy”) many are evolving to the Intuitive level of consciousness. I believe that “HSPs” are generally at the intuitive level of consciousness.
What does all this have to do with peace? When individuals follow the “higher self,” are more highly evolved, and discover that peace is within themselves, that peace can spread out into the world.... into the mass consciousness. “Let there be Peace on Earth and Let it Begin with Me” is a song that is sung in some of our churches. But can world peace be established in our time? In theory yes, but in actuality the answer is probably no.
In “reality”, in today's world situation, and according to Bible prophecy, peace among nations will not happen until there is peace in the individual hearts of humankind.
However, even though world peace can probably not be achieved in our lifetime, we can still contribute to the future by being peaceful ourselves, by thinking peace, praying for peace, speaking peace, by being a peacemaker. "Blessed are the peacemakers " is one of the Christian Beatitudes and also one of the Eightfold Paths of Buddhism.
So what about the mythic membership level of human consciousness? What does it have to do with war? It is the reason some nations and some people still believe that war is the answer to our differences. This kind of thinking is of a lower level of consciousness. As I have mentioned, many of us are blessed with a natural Intuition . Develop your intuition and listen for the better way…. the higher life.. the highest life....
Over 25 years ago, the famous American evangelist, Billy Graham said that in the end times the “good” will get better, and the “bad” will get worse… the separation of the “sheep and the goats.” Which way are you going? Open your heart and mind to the true peace that God has to give…. Make that quantum leap… Once and for all, make a definite decision for life, for peace, for love and be open to receive it and ready to pass it on to your family, friends, enemies and eventually to all nations and future generations.
"The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.
"And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
"And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den.
"They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea." (Isaiah 11: 6-9)
Our Vision For Earth: Getting There
By Joanna Cherry
We look in the mirror one day--each one of us--and wake up. Eskimos, Brazilians, Scots, Americans, Indians, Nigerians, Russians, Australians, Israelis--we realize we are divinity, a being of light. We no longer deny the truth. Our hearts swell with joy!
Spontaneously we see all our lives, what we’ve been--slaves and slave owners, teachers and followers, saints and tyrants. We cry about our cruelties, but finally understanding comes. We have explored this plane with all its glory and terror, sorrow and joy. The purpose of each of our roles was the precious fruit of wisdom. And what a play it has been! A grand, sprawling adventure.
We forgive ourselves.
Throwing our arms around one another, tears again as mother and child reconcile, husband and wife, ex-spouses, estranged siblings, friends, co-workers, black with white with red with yellow, Christians with each other and with Moslems with Buddhists with Hindus with Sikhs; Israelis with Palestinians; Serbs with Kosovians with with. . . until all is reconciled between every person and every group.
We who govern, from small towns to nations, begin--at long last--to act for the highest good of all people and all of life. We forge a lasting peace between nations. We reveal the dark secrets of government oppression and omission, for there may be no more such secrets. And we are forgiven for the past.
Not a single person slips through the cracks. Every child, every man and woman is fed and warm, clothed and housed. We give not only physical needs; we work to restore every person to self-honor and wholeness. All orphaned children, and those who have been abused, are welcomed into loving, caring, healthy families.
We who are wealthy use our wealth to bless others. Our goal: the empowerment, freedom, joy, and fulfillment of every being.
We of banks and other financial institutions work to bring people and nations out of debt. We of corporations share our wealth with employees, and serve the good of humanity and the environment. Gradually, the money system gives way to higher ways of exchanging energy. People are able to leave unwanted work and fulfill their purposes in ease, joy and abundance.
Media share the good news! Movies and television shows are uplifting and enlightening.
In the prisons, we inmates become enlightened and begin to serve the world, and are pardoned and freed. We the insane regain wholeness of mind and heart. We the patients in hospitals, realizing how and why we created illness or accident for ourselves, gain the knowledge of self-healing and walk out.
Beautiful parks take the place of these sad institutions.
We who have lost loved ones are able to communicate clearly with them and realize they are still alive. Grief disappears! In the lower astral plane, all of us who are lost, in limbo or a hell of our own belief, are assisted into joy and freedom.
Our Vision For Earth: Being
There we have forgiven ourselves, each one, to the depths of our souls. We have forgiven everything and everyone else, all events and all circumstances of every life.
Family life is transformed; parents and children love and honor one another, and promote what is best and highest for each family member. Women are in charge of their reproductive faculties; only when a child is desired is it conceived. Each child born is lovingly raised.
Love relationships are between two whole and conscious people; heartbreaks are a thing of the past.
Men and women are recognized as perfect equals, expressing polarized aspects of divine nature. This equality extends to every arena of life.
Each religion of the world fully honors all others, as well as the teachings of wise people. We know Goddess/God is One, that spiritual reality is beyond any religion. We are each centered, first and foremost, on the divinity within.
Manifestation is instant and for highest good, so all know joyous, divine abundance. Buildings and all needs are created from concentrated thought.
Lawyers, doctors, psychiatrists, policemen--no one knows of these, for they no longer exist. Laws are obsolete, as we want only happiness for each other.
Our cities are a paradise mix of sacred geometry structures, beautiful trees, plants and flowers. Everything is beautiful.
Immortality is the natural way for each person, along with continuous beauty and health.
Travel by thought or by non-polluting ships has replaced the traffic jams of the past!
We communicate telepathically at will.
Our animal friends are treated as younger brothers and sisters. We don’t kill or eat them, but share a loving bond.
Our weather is mild and peaceful, and cataclysms are no more.
Earth’s purposes in the universe are known to us, and we work to fulfill them. Ours is a planet of complete peace, light and joy, one with God in full realization.
We plan and carry out joyful projects of music, exploration, communication with other star systems, and many other things unimagined in the 21st Century.

"Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth." Revelation 21:1:
"When man was originally placed by his Maker in a paradisiacal garden with its abundance of fruit trees and green leaf herbs, - God provided also invisible food - consisting of pure, undefiled fresh air (the breath of life) laden with the aroma from flowering shrubbery and luxuriant foliage of plants and trees. Clear, sparkling water, running stream, unpolluted by man-made poisonous chemicals, were available year round for man to quench his thirst - and the magnetic-impulses together with electrical vibrations coming direct from the solar rays furnished vital forces for the body. And the good earth added its share of these "invisible foods" for both spirit and body which are inexorably interconnected and require these essentially necessary vital forces for life." - Prof. Arnold Ehret in "A Religious Concept of Physical, Spiritual and Mental Dietetics"
"I dream of giving birth to a child who will ask, :Mother, whatwas war?" ~ Eve Merriam, Peacemaking: Day by Day
"The Second Coming of Christ can occur in two ways: with the end of time (only God knows when that is) or by our accessing the eternal dimension within us. The latter is what the liturgy and the spiritual journey are attempting to bring about. The values of eternal life are constantly breaking into the linear dimension of chronological time and putting us in
contact with the Ultimate Reality."
Keating, Thomas. "Awakenings" Crossroad, New York. 1997.
"We start the resurrection of man by reconstructing the Paradise, planting fruit trees, vineyards and gardens-as our new residence. We bring not only a scientific system of healing based on Natural laws, but a regeneration, - a complete resurrection of the flesh, - by water, air ("spirit, from the Greek word "spiro" meaning air) and by the divine food of God - ie: Fruits!" ~ Prof. Arnold Ehret "Physical Fitness thru a Superior Diet, Fasting and Dietetics"
"The "chosen ones" will not be the "church runners" - those sick in mind and body, but they shall be of Christlike health, a new kind of race; not planted in modern Sodoms, but in the garden of the new Eden. " ~ Prof. Arnold Ehret
