Thread: Thought For Today

    The virus is taking off, and we are told that the majority of those dying are the elderly. This worries my missus, I am older than her and take immune suppressants, especially in light of the apparently cavalier attitude of the Government. However, consider this. The average age of British MPs is 50 and the cohort of over 70's is larger than that of under thirties. We already have one junior minister and her assistant sick, plus one other senior figure who remains anonymous. The structure of our government could look very different in just a couple of months.

    To Jab Or Not To Jab – Part Twenty-Four

    The Latest About The Coronavirus Outbreak



    At the beginning of March 2020 one of my friends sent me the following: ‘Tremendous worldwide efforts are being made to understand the virus so a vaccine can be produced.’ That confirms my suspicions about the present Coronavirus outbreak and how the mass media are doing their best to whip the hysteria of the masses into fever pitch, so that the pharmaceutical companies can emerge after a while with the declaration that they have developed a new ‘wonder drug’. For further details see the relevant links at the end of this chapter, especially the one for the Ebola outbreak.

    BBC News reported on 5th March 2020: There is currently no vaccine available to protect people against the disease. But when could that change? Researchers have developed vaccines and are starting to test them on animals, and if that goes well there could be human trials later in the year. But even if scientists can celebrate having developed a vaccine before Christmas, there is still the massive job of being able to mass-produce it. That means, realistically, one would not be ready until at least the middle of next year. All of this is happening on an unprecedented timescale and using new approaches to vaccines, so there are no guarantees everything will go smoothly.

    There are four different types of Coronavirus that already circulate in human beings. They cause the common cold and we do not have vaccines for any of them [because no doubt there is no need for them].

    On the 11th March 2020 one of my friends brought the following video to my attention:

    The Symbolism Of The Six-Pointed Star



    The six-pointed star is a symbol of the healing that eventually takes place between the Great White Spirit, Father/Mother of all life and every one of His/Her earthly children. The downwards pointing triangle of the star represents our Highest Self and the upwards reaching one our lower earthly self. When the small self’s evolutionary journey of exploration on the Earth draws to its close, the two parts begin to reach out for each other and come ever closer. This continues until finally they have merged into a bright and shining Star and another Christed one is working hard to do their share of establishing God’s kingdom on the Earth.

    Spirit alone can create matter and destroy it at will and all matter is imbued with spirit. Any spirit that dwells in matter assists the matter surrounding it in its own evolution. When humankind was first introduced to an existence in physicality, planet Earth had been prepared for this event for aeons of time, to ensure that in due course it could act as a suitable learning ground and a school of life for our race. And so it came about that ever since some of us appeared for the first time, we and our planet have been evolving together. All of us are spirit and in due course we too shall learn how to create and destroy matter.

    The emergence of our race on the Earth enabled the Highest to provide us with countless real life opportunities for studying and learning, which would steadily expand our wisdom and understanding of life, ourselves and our world. Through this, in the course of a great many lifetimes, we gradually develop the skills we require to eventually be worthy of being called young Gods, which in truth every one of us is. Life itself will always be our teacher, but for the time being we have to make do with Mother Earth as our school. And although our earthly lessons are real enough while we are here, the more aware we become of our true nature and the higher purpose of our existence, the more we notice that taking part in earthly life is very much like children’s play-acting.

    Ever since the start of humankind’s descent into matter, tenderly cared for and watched over by our loving parent, the Great White Spirit, Father/Mother of all life, together with Its messengers, the Angels, the consciousness of us and our world has been expanding in wisdom and understanding. Through this every human soul in due course learns to differentiate between darkness and light, good and evil, honour and betrayal, love and hate, and so forth. And because the only way of learning the value of peace is through experiencing wars, as far back as historical records are available, human life on the Earth seems to have consisted of not much more that warmongering and destruction. This ensures that we shall truly cherish peace when it finally does come to our world. With all my heart and soul I do believe that this is going to happen and that we shall value it most highly.

    On the road to peace and reconciliation it is good to know that God and the Angels have always accompanied us, more than that: they have been and still are part of us. That’s why they are familiar with every bit of our suffering. At all times they are willing to help us, but they cannot do so until someone ask for it, for that is the law. As we move along the predestined pathway of our life, through our struggling our inner strength and resistance increases. To quote the Talmud: ‘The burden is equal to the horse’s strength.’ And to paraphrase the Roman Emperor and philosopher Marcus Aurelius, 121 – 180 C.E.: ‘Nothing befalls human beings, except what is in their nature to endure.’

    God and the Angels have the power to grant us the gift of sufficient courage and vigour to do what has to be done, so let’s not forget to ask them to supply us with them, so that regardless of how chaotic Earth life on its surface may frequently appear to be we shall be able to cope and deal constructively with whatever comes our way. Instead of being dragged down by earthly events, for us as budding seekers of God’s wisdom and truth it is of the greatest importance to focus on that which is at the same time happening on the higher and highest levels of life, where the way of all things is known. This perception of life lifts us above the material plane and into our Creator’s positive stream of consciousness and thought, and that helps us to steer clear of the thoughts and impressions of chaos and darkness the scaremongers of our world enjoy wallowing in to spread fear and doubt into the hearts and souls of humankind.

    Because we know what life really is about, there is every reason why we should trust the wisdom and power of the Highest. Therefore, let us not allow ourselves to be sucked into the negative stream where the worst is expected at all times for us and our world, but frequently remind ourselves that as one of God’s children of the Age of Aquarius we no longer need to join their thinking. We are here to practise tuning our whole being into the positive thought stream. This is not difficult when we know deep down in our heart of hearts that only the best is waiting for us, our race and world and that it is sure to emerge in the fullness of time, that everything will work out for the best in the end and that out of all the evil that still exists on the Earth much good is bound to come in the end. The law of life being love, it simply cannot be any other way.

    To assist us with this, the Christ Star, the Highest Star and the brightest light in the whole of Creation, at all times spreads Its light in the form of spiritual knowledge, wisdom and truth, through the channel of all awakened ones ever deeper into the layers of consciousness of our whole world. The only way the Christ Spirit can save and redeem all of us is by waking up in ever more hearts and souls. That is God’s truth which for so long had to remain hidden behind the myth of Jesus as the saviour and redeemer of humankind. Through our faith and trust in the Highest, the upper triangle of the Star, every last shred of darkness of ignorance, fears and doubts of our small earthly self, the lower triangle, as well as all the pain and suffering of our whole world are slowly but surely absorbed into the upper triangle, our Christ Self, who uplifts and transmutes them into blessing and healing energies for the whole of Creation.

    Regardless of what still has to take place in the world around us, the perception of life we have found by now helps us to remain positive at all times. Our way of thinking shows the wise ones in charge of us that we are indeed evolving into one of the Great Mother’s wise children. This continues until our thoughts have the power to penetrate the mists and darkness that to this day fill and surround so much of our world. The more positively we think, the more powerfully the rays of God’s light flow through us. Eventually it grows strong enough to fill the densest particles of matter with the Divine blessing and healing energies, which steadily absorb more and more of the gloom of earthly life. By listening to and following the guidance we receive from the living God, the wise one within, everybody who is consciously involved in humankind’s spiritual reconstruction is meant to go forward and lead our whole world home.

    The six-pointed Star represents the healing process, in which the higher and lower aspects of our nature gradually join forces and grow into one. A new Star appears on the Earth plane and a Christed one comes into being, who is capable of acting as one more saviour and redeemer of themselves, the whole of humankind and our world. For a very long time such a being may walk in our midst without they themselves and those around them realising that this is happening. The different developmental stages every soul has to undergo on its way to evolving into a Christed one is the Divine truth behind the surface words of the Jesus legend. That is the message the myth has been trying to convey to humankind ever since its first appearance.

    When we are sharing a nugget of God’s wisdom and truth that we are finding along the long and winding road of evolving into a Christed one in our own right, we do so in the hope that they in turn will pass their knowledge on to others. In this way slowly but surely ever more of the darkness of our world’s spiritual ignorance dissolves and turns into light. Robert Alden wrote: ‘There is not enough darkness in all the world, to put out the light of one candle.’ The same is true for every grain of Divine wisdom. Each one of them has the power of sowing a seed which, when the time is right for this to happen, creates a tiny spark of clear and distinct recognition in the receiving soul. That’s what happens when our inner guidance, the small still voice of conscience within us, upon hearing or reading something murmurs: ‘This is right, you know!’ A small shoot begins to grow within and the Divine spark stirs from its slumbers.

    This is how it comes about that in due course the higher and lower aspects of our nature are being integrated into our character make-up. They heal together into one single unit, which makes us whole and holy, and another one of God’s children of the Earth has developed into a Christed one in their own right. For us the vast cycle of learning and experiencing life in physicality closes, our earthly education is complete and there will be no further need for lifetimes on this planet. Upon our return into the world of light, our true home, a warm and loving welcome from the wise ones in charge of us is sure to await us. After the usual period of rest and recuperation they are going to release us into the spiritual freedom of the Aquarian Age and at long last we are allowed to move on to exploring and studying the higher and finally the highest levels of life.

    Not surprisingly the last lifetime before such a release can take place is a particularly tough and demanding one. This is because the remnants of the shadows of all lifetimes have to be cleared away, karmic debts paid and our sins against Mother Earth redeemed in some way. Every relationship has to be transformed into a friendship, to ensure that no unresolved issues or connections are left behind when we leave our present level of existence. We shall not be free until the balance of our spiritual account in the great book of life has been restored. But take heart all who are presently struggling with coming to terms and making their peace with earthly life. If you just keep on keeping on, you are sure to get there in the end, the same as everybody else when their time of liberation from Earth life has come.

    Counteracting The Coronavirus Mass Hysteria

    From A Member Of The Stanford Hospital Board



    This particular Coronavirus may not show signs of infection for many days. How can one know whether one has been infected? By the time someone has fever and is coughing, their lung is usually fifty percent affected by Fibrosis and it’s too late. Taiwan experts provide a simple self-check that we can do every morning. Take a deep breath and hold your breath for more than ten seconds. If you complete it successfully without coughing and discomfort, stiffness or tightness and so forth, there is no Fibrosis in your lungs and you have not been infected. During critical times please self-check every morning in an environment with clean air.

    Excellent advice also comes from Japanese doctors who are treating COVID-19 cases. Ensure that your mouth and throat are moist and do not feel dry. Taking a few sips of water about every fifteen minutes is a wise precaution because even if the virus gets into your mouth, drinking water or other liquids washes them down through your throat into your stomach. The acid in your stomach destroys any virus. If you don't drink sufficient water or other liquids regularly, through your windpipe the virus can enter your lungs. And that is very dangerous.

    Please Note:

    1. If you have a runny nose and sputum, you have a common cold.

    2. Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose.

    3. This virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature of just 26/27 degrees. It hates the Sun.

    4. If someone who is affected by it sneezes, the virus remains airborne for about ten feet and then drops to the ground.

    5. If it drops on a metal surface it will live for at least twelve hours. If you come into contact with any metal surfaces, wash your hands as soon as you can with an antibacterial soap.

    6. On fabrics it can survive six to twelve hours. Ordinary laundry detergent kills it.

    7. Drinking warm water is the most effective treatment of any kind of virus. Avoid drinking any type of ice-cold liquid.

    8. Wash your hands frequently as the virus can only live on your skin for five to ten minutes. Much can happen during that time, for example through rubbing your eyes, picking your nose and so forth.

    9. Gargle regularly as a preventative measure. A simple solution of warm salty water is sufficient.

    10. Most important, drink lots of warm water.

    The Symptoms

    1. The virus first affects the throat, so you'll have a sore throat lasting 3/4 days.

    2. It then blends into a nasal fluid that enters the trachea and then the lungs, causing pneumonia. This takes approx. another 5/6 days.

    3. With the pneumonia comes high fever and breathing difficulties.

    4. The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. If you feel like you are drowning, seek attention immediately.

    As a confirmation of my suspicions about the development of a
    new ‘wonder drug vaccination’, expressed in ‘The Ebola Outbreak’,
    I just discovered the following:

    Scientists close to developing Coronavirus vaccine after tests on mice

    By PA Reporter five hours ago

    A vaccine for the Covid-19 illness caused by the Coronavirus is on the verge of being developed, a team of scientists has said. Researchers, led by Mucosal Infection and Immunity head Dr Robin Shattock, told the Daily Express they have successfully trialled the vaccine in mice and are hopeful it could be ready for human trials by June.Senior researcher Dr Paul McKay, of Imperial College London, told the paper: ‘I’ve got results from a month after I injected (the mice) and the vaccine works really, really well.’

    Not to make light of anyone's demise, but the USA has lost about 900 people to ordinary flu for each Coronavirus death to date.

    Every winter flu kills over 10,000 people in the USA, mostly the old, and those with health issues.

    This seems to be getting a lot more attention than the numbers would suggest.

    The death rate for flu varies, the 1918 pandemic was probably about 2%, Modern pandemics rarely reach 1%. Difficult to say with coronavirus as yet, but estimates are at about 4+% , and that is with modern care.
    So, 10,000 dead each year will equate to about 1,000,000 people catching flu, but there will be some immunity from previous years and there are effective vaccines , so you can expect a much higher infection rate. The probability is that considerably more than four times the number of people will die of corona than flu this year the transmission rate is high also.
    There was a doctor talking on the radio who had had the virus and recovered. By their account it was a lot nastier than flu, with temperatures of 102, and a previously fit and healthy person still out of breath when walking up stairs a fortnight after 'recovery'. That, of course, is anecdotal, not everyone will get that ill, but I bet an awful lot do

    Follow Your Dreams



    If, while pursuing distant dreams,
    Your bright hopes turn to grey,
    Don’t wait for reassuring words
    Or hands to lead the way.

    For seldom will you find a soul
    With dreams the same as yours.
    Not often will another help you
    Pass through untried doors.

    If inner forces urge you
    To take a course unknown,
    Be ready to go all the way,
    Yes, all the way –
    If need be, on your own.

    That’s not to say we shouldn’t
    Learn our lessons from the best.
    Just don’t wait for lauding words,
    To spur you on your quest.

    Find confidence in your own heart
    And let it be your guide.
    Strive ever harder towards your dreams –
    And they will never be denied.

    To find the way to yours,
    Follow the Highest Star and the brightest light,
    Pursue your highest aspirations, give of your best
    And trust that God and the Angels will do the rest.
    As surely they will.

    If Luck Were A Raindrop



    If luck were a raindrop,
    I’d send you a shower.
    If hope were a minute,
    I’d send you an hour.
    If happiness were a leaf,
    I’d give you a tree.
    And whenever you need a friend,
    You’ll always have me.
