Journal Entry, 6 October 2017 – Storms Inner and Outer
A year ago Hurricane Matthew slowly churned northward along the Florida coastline, its Category 1 winds ripping up trees and its storm surge chomping through beaches and coastal highways. This year, Florida has endured the predations of Irma and Maria. The islands of the Caribbean fared even worse being all but entirely flattened by the two Category 5 storms, their infrastructure, homes, and businesses shredded. For the islands, including the Florida Keys, it will take a long time to make full recovery. Even in the relatively wealthy neighborhoods of Palm Beach County, clean-up proceeds. Power has been restored, stores and businesses are open, but there is still debris pick-up taking place. Piles of debris from Irma still sit in the front yards of my neighborhood waiting for the debris trucks. Clean up after storms of this magnitude take a while. For the islands, the process of recovery is a true test of the resilience of a community and the open-hearted (or not) assistance from the mainland.
Even now, Tropical Storm Nate is heading for the mid-Gulf Coast of the States. If it makes landfall as a Category 1 hurricane, Nat will be the third hurricane to make landfall in the States this season. Just about all of the Gulf Coast will have suffered from these storms, with an ensuing huge economic impact in terms of housing and jobs lost, people displaced, infrastructure needing to be rebuilt, and, in some cases just starting over from square one. Yes, it’s been quite a rainy season here in the subtropics of North America. After the drought last year, it’s been quite something to experience. I must admit I kind of miss the cooler temperatures of the Pacific Northwest, but even there the region experienced an unusually long drought and high temperatures during a long and smoky summer filled with forest fires. What’s worst – enduring hurricanes or breathing smoke all summer with lungs already damaged from second-hand smoke? Hmmm, I might consider relocating to another region or state entirely…
Today I finally got out on a proper nature walk with camera in hand. It was a joy to be in Nature, looking for birds and other creatures. I observed that some of the wild trees have put out fresh green growth. Nature does not complain; Nature endures, adapts and grows, inspiring us all with its resilience despite whatever comes its way, wind, drought, rain, sun or storm. I saw two alligators, an assortment of beautiful birds, one turtle and one iguana. I’ve learned a lot about herons and other marsh birds since taking up residence in South Florida. I can recognize the presence of some of the birds by the sounds they make, how they fly or their plumage. When I saw a grouping of photographers aiming in one direction, I glanced over to a distant hammock and noted a black and white bird, an osprey. I had already seen quite a few ospreys in North Florida… and they’re not rare in South Florida. I’ve seen them a couple of times, but the photographers seemed particularly intent on getting shots with their huge lens. I walked on. I enjoy looking at and photographing animals and birds but only as part of being out in Nature and being able to post a few of the best shots on this blog.
This past week has been difficult for people. On the evening of October 1st, there was a mass shooting that took place in Las Vegas. The official story is being questioned by many, including myself. In my humble opinion, the event was a false flag… meaning that while people did get wounded and died there was an alternative motive(s) for what took place. I suggest that people begin to question everything that comes out in police reports and especially what is presented in the mass media coverage. There is much more to this event (some suggest events) than is apparent from reading or listening to a report over your local news media.
This period of time is a period of transition. While some of my readers are not “into” metaphysics, I have a strong background in them. I have been aware for a long time that we would reach a period when choices had to be made, people would die/pass from this life often suddenly, and great change would be upon us all. It is in times like this that the innate ability of humans to adapt to change is called into play.
I realize that changing one’s life is often not viewed as a pleasant experience, but sometimes outside circumstances have a way of overcoming that resistance. Just ask the people who have lived through Irma and Marie how they are faring these days. You will get different answers to your inquiry, depending on the individual’s ability to adapt and respond to the need of the now moment. I’ve let go of a lot since I left Washington State and the changes are still coming, albeit they are currently gentler than it has been for some folks. During Irma, I chose to shelter in place and my decision proved a good one, if accompanied by some nerve-wracking moments (hours) as we watched the forecasts change the position of the eyewall of Irma. Fortunately, the storm was downgraded to a Category 1 when she finally reached Palm Beach County. That doesn’t mean there wasn’t any damage – not to our house – but the local beaches and trees, especially on the barrier islands really took a beating. Due to Matthew, Harvey, Irma and Maria, the local beaches are a shadow of their former sandy selves, with the waves of high tides lapping close to the existent dunes.
Yes, there are some people blaming “global warming” on humans, but that particular belief is, IMHO, shortsighted, ignoring the input from some farsighted scientists in order to pursue a politically motivated agenda. Our planet is in the process of warming up, but not entirely due to the actions of human beings. What is ignored is the fact that many other planets in this Solar System are also registering changes in planetary temperatures. In the course of 70 years, our Sun has changed from a yellow star to a blazing white one. There is a transition that is greater than any of us occurring in this Universe. Each one of us is a part of that change.
Our home planet, Earth, is undergoing a planetary ascension, a process that requires all of life to adapt to the rising frequencies. The brutal fact is that some species, including human beings, will not survive the coming changes. The powers that be (were) are aware of what is going on and have done their mightiest to resist the ongoing surge of cosmic radiation with all sorts of violence and crazy schemes, yet none of it, not any of their decades-long plans to take full command of this planet will prevail. The balance has tipped to the Light, and with this long-awaited change, all dark plots will come to naught. That is not to say, however, that some groups and individuals won’t continue to be hurt, wounded or killed. Karma, the Law of Balance, is in play, both at the macro and micro levels, from the Universe to the life of an individual or species.
Many of the tender hearts in the world claim to want to “save” the planet. That is not required. Your planet is a living being. Once your world passed through the last potential period of planetary reset, the balance tipped to the Light. The world as we have known it will not be destroyed, but she will be eternally transformed into something quite unexpected. Each one of you is also responsible for your own future. Are you able to open your heart and embrace the opportunities that arise in the moment or will you sulk and complain that your internet is not functioning. Put the phone down and go for a walk. Smile at the antics of pets, babies, people, life. It is a beautiful world but you need to open your eyes to see the beauty that exists in each moment you spend here on this amazing blue-green planet. Much more could be written on this subject, but I will bring this particular article to a close.
Feel the emotions that many of you are afraid of and be filled with wonder. If you survive as the frequencies rise, you will discover much about yourself, your planet and life. Life is a miracle. You are a miracle. Accept yourself as you are today and smile. The sun is still shining…somewhere… and the birds are still singing. Know that with every ending there is also a beginning.
