Example text

The strength of the magnetic field is weakening4, and if the strength of the field goes to zero, it will shift. This is a naturally occurring cycle on your planet, brought about by the shifts in consciousness and the peculiar rotation of your planet. This rotation has a little wobble in it, called precession, which completes once every 25,000 years or so. Why should the magnetic field shift, and the changing strength of the magnetic field be related to a shift in consciousness, OR the precession?

When you got to the TV you did not recall where it was. When you walked back into the computer room you saw it sitting right before the monitor. This is a good example of: what is perceived is what is real. Did the remote have an ‘objective‘ reality? ’ But you did not see it. So for you it did not exist. What is perceived is what exists. Now you might say, ‘But I could have perceived it and I did perceive it later. ’ This is how the game of perception, and reality, works. If the remote was made and it was sitting on the desk but no one in the universe is aware of its existence, can it be said to have an ‘objective’ or independent existence?

It is your decision. If you could analyze all of your thoughts at any moment when you feel bad, these will always be self–limiting. The difficulty is that when you reach the lower emotions, you are not so bright or aware of your own thought. However, the only way to reach lower emotions is through conscious thought! As we say over and over, you may draw anything into your experience and perceive it in any way you would like. I get it. Why do I get into these funks? (sigh) there you go again!!!!
