Market Monday: A Time to “Cat”

“Time to Cat…” A pleasant late-summer idiom:  Cats have the good sense to sleep 12-16 hours a day.  Human’s don’t.  We seem compelled to get up, eat three (or more) meals, and waste tons of effort on worry.  Which explains why, Zeus the Cat (our chief critic, grammarian, and editor) doesn’t trade markets.

Alleging myself superior to  him, I noted that futures were down half a percent in today’s early view.  Dow down 150-ish?

Noise trading, Fatso.  China was down 4-10th’s of a percent and exactly offset by Japan which was up 4-10th’s.  You are too anxious for profits.”

“Not so, rabid fur ball:  Europe is trending down  too and that could pick up steam as we roll through the week.”

Listen, Tubby, the real deal – and this is my NSS advice because I AM a black cat – is the crisis will come Halloween when Brexit happens and Europe finds it has screwed itself into a corner.  This fall’s what you ought to be looking at, none of this transient headline crap.  Go have a look and you’ll see what I mean…”

So I did.

“Hey!  What about this for a Big Story? “Jeffrey Epstein wasn’t checked on for hours before apparent suicide: report“?”

Betcha a bottle of catnip extract says he’s in WitSec and spilling the beans on Wild Bill and the rest of the flying perverts of the Deep State. Nice thought, ain’t it? Next?”

“Well, how’s about ” In fighting deep fakes, mice may be great listeners?  Sounds more your speed…”

“Fun guy, you mushroom.  You’re not looking at it through Cat’s eyes like I do.  Let me roll through some headlines on my MeowPad.  Here…look at these useless wastes of bandwidth:

You know, if you were as smart as you humans think they are, you’d take a day-long cat nap and call it good….”

“Can’t do that.  My whole schtick is being a writer.  Besides, what about stories like “Hong Kong International Airport cancels all departing flights as anti-government protesters occupy terminals?”  Doesn’t that count as big news?”

“Hell no.  You are NOT in Hong Kong and trying to leave, are you?  Not flying to HK for lunch, either?  So WTF does it matter?  China’s been hard of people since the Cultural Revolution and Tiananmen Square…so really, George, save the adrenalin hit for something worthwhile.  Maybe a little harder government works, I mean look around you….”

What about Modesto denying a Straight Pride parade a permit for a demonstration?”

See?  You get sucked-in every time.  Are you in Modesto or selling demonstration insurance?  No?  So STFU and let me nap.

“OK, but this is a land of Principles, is it not?  And they’re always under attack, right? That by-God is what news is about!”

Land of Principles? Zat so?  Tell me, is that why your own government doesn’t put its name on your phony money and instead issues paper in the name of a banker front-group, the Federal “Reserve?”  Is that why gold and silver aren’t money and Bitcoin seems to be?  Is that why your Supreme Court can’t figure out what natural born means? Or if medical insurance being a legal requirement that’s somehow NOT a tax?  No, Ure sadly mistaken, as always…  Get out of my face and let me nap.  I have big mousing plans for tonight….”

“What am I supposed to write about…I’m just trying to findf something compelling that will make my work “must-read” material…”

Stupid human!  There is NO MUST READ ANYTHING!  The world will continues whether you get worked-up or not.  Now leave before I take a swipe at you.  Be gone!  Turn off that damn computer on your way out…”


Damn cat.  Finicky editor!

Reluctantly, I tip-toed out to my office, being careful not to disturb Zeus the Editor-in-Chief on the wayHe’d made a few points. But I wasn’t done.  Sure there’s got to be something compelling from 7.6 billion people all trying to out Twit one-another?

Being an economist of sorts, I vowed to find something that would really fire people up.  Start Monday with a bang.

My first stop was on several financial calendar sites.  Maybe a big financial story would do the trick, people being greedy and all…

Unfortunately, this afternoon’s Treasury Budget will be like watching paint dry.  Red paint, but paint nevertheless.

Consumer prices will be out tomorrow and while they may show an increase of 3-10ths of one percent, at least a third to half of that is just the value of money cratering such that it takes more made-up money to but the groceries.  It’s the same reason gold is up.  Not like it’s a gold rush.  More like it just takes more “watered down paper” to buy the same goods as it used to.

There will be some entertainment value to the CPI report tomorrow since the Fed pretends that “core inflation” matters.  That’s overall price change minus food and energy.  Which frankly, is as “back to close asswards” as you can get.  People don’t care so much about the cost of toilet paper unless they have food and energy first…which is why farcical reserve banking with made up ducats is just a joke only a few people really “get.”

Wednesday import-export data will be skewed to the Max grounding.

Retail sales and Productivity will be worth getting out of bed for Thursday, but near as we can figure, except for the CPI headline and misdirection tomorrow, maybe The Cat  is onto something.

Tell you what:  You go read the lefty hand-wringing agenda stories  like “The desperate pleas of asylum seekers who “Remain in Mexico”” and I’ll go back to bed.

Zeus the Cat is onto something.

If I can’t change the direction of the news flow, why burden my soul with the weight of the world’s problems?  Got my own shit to keep squared-way.

And who knows, maybe I can learn to dream about catching mice instead of short-term statistical pricing aberrations in levered index exchange-traded funds.

Huff of catnip?

Write when I wake up,

    • I’ve been taking regular advice from a rather large (6 foot 3.5 inches, to be precise) rabbit I first met at a bar in Indiana Pennsylvania (coincidentally the hometown of Jimmy Stewart). Also coincidentally, the rabbit’s name is Harvey! Damnedest thing is . . . not many folks can see him, let along hold a decent conversation with him.

      Happy Monday!

      • “I’ve been taking regular advice from a rather large (6 foot 3.5 inches, to be precise) rabbit”

        I wondered where HARVEY went.. LOL…

        Recipe from harvey…
        1 garlic.. minced and sauteed (I use water) ( not just a clove..)
        1 tsp of italian spices.. ( I added dried onions )
        1 cup of parmesian cheese
        1.5 quarts of sweet cream
        2 sticks of real butter..
        salt and pepper to taste..
        sautee the garlic add the cream and butter and italian spices.. after the butter is melted into the cream and garlic etc.. slowly add the parmesan cheese..
        it is by far the best Alfredo sauce you’ll ever eat..

      • Damn stuff reduced my dating profile to the cellar back in the day. Then started dating Italian girls and women who were gourmet savvy. give Elaine a clove or two, some chicken and red wine…how we’re ciao’ing…

  1. How many people in North Korea are overweight – 1. Oprah won’t be opening a Weight Watchers Franchise there. The far east is not a growth area for Weight Watchers even though McD & Taco Bell are big there.

  2. George, remember your most astute advice. Ask the question, “Is it actionable by me?” If not, let it go in peace. Straightening out the world is accomplished by each of us taking care of our own bleep.

  3. Just finished the book and series “The Loudest Voice In The Room…I was trying to simultaneously read them as the series unfolded, but the book and series didn’t exactly sync up. One take away of both is how both sides of the news spectrum lie to their benefit. Fox’s strategy is to center their anti-liberal stance using the Clintons as their base of hatred. If I was a business and was trying to gain market share, I would also prey upon the weakest link of my competitors. The Clintons are no doubt the weakest link…but that link may be growing old. The Dems have pretty much banned her from any and all exposure. So, the new enemy is socialism…it’s a Roger Ailes/Fox strategy. Take the absolute worst case scenario, no matter if it is true or not and make it a mainstream belief knowing that there is a base that cares or falls for that stuff.

    The mainstream media does the same thing…They well overplay the racist and climate change angle, knowing that there is a good portion of America cares or falls for that too.

    In the end, it’s all about market share and not market wants or needs. How is Fox fighting CNN and the same in reverse help me and you? It doesn’t. It just takes up our time and energy and is a huge distraction while the PTB schemes up ways to make more money for themselves. It’s the outright Fox lies vs. the overt dramatics of CNN. Both are dangerous…Both do nothing to solve our nation’s ills. They are both distractions.

    The Loudest voice series ended with the John Lennon Song, “Gimme Some Truth” the 1971 hit from the Imagine Album. That song, released during the Nixon era and Vietnam war, has even more relevance today. We definitely need a source of truth, because everywhere you look, you just can’t tell anymore.

    • Truth is found within. Just ask Andy.

      The “left” and “right” are working toward a common goal – centralization of power and control. The differences are nominal, though the left tends to interfere with our lives more and the right tends to engender more perceptible anger. The left manipulates with guilt and the right manipulates with fear.

      While people are wringing their hands about “the refugees”, etc.; obamascare, tariffs, and internet taxes are taking an ever greater percentage of our disposable income. There’s a point beyond which the society will become unsustainable.

      • Truth is viewpoint from source. Ponder that until you get it. It may take you years, if ever.

      • “Truth is viewpoint from source”. The source is always from within yourself, viewing the world from the inside out, so all the outside noise doesn’t affect your judgement or control you.

    • Recommend HBO mini-series, YEARSandYEARS. Unsettling because it’s prescient. The show clearly shows how rhetoric has consequences. Based in England but could just as easily be based in the U.S. Story of a family and society over 20 years reacting to the forces and changes in society post-2019, especially media. Only six 1-hour episodes. High ratings. Will have problems getting past conservative viewers because the family is all in rainbow coalition. There is a good synopsis on Wikipedia.

  4. Dam.. I have had it..
    personally this is going to be my next papa’s project..
    screw the wood fired oven or the bird houses.. bat houses etc..
    I am going to take all this dammed junk mail that comes daily and some wood chips and toast it and make charcoal briquettes out of it..
    My father use to burn phone books.. after the ton of crap that is sent out.. I feel it is only fitting that I get some use out of it..
    If we only would do this on the important issues to our congressmen.. send a letter a day.. fifty thousand letters to each congressman would have them scurrying back to DC and taking time to finish the issues.. and you thought other issues were done in lightning speed.. do that and it will happen in a NY minute..

    • You wish. Most can’t – or don’t read – because every bill has a payoff and pork.
      No, best we just maintain that bit of our self reliance and independence outside an urban kill zone and work for survival on the backside. At which time, with money then worthless, justice will not be priced to the market.

      • You have to admit.. I would get a big bag of popcorn and watch the show if a group actually got together and did that. It would be the show of the century LOL LOL.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aeqOkYDqNw8.. granted they wouldn’t read any of them.. but for every member new or old.. in congress every day for a week.. LOL could the land fill handle them.. how many city boys would it take LOL OTFLMAO…
        LOL LOL you lived in DC.. it would shut that town down.. LOL LOL
        It wouldn’t make any difference on how many billions are legally given to buy legislation whether or not they are being trafficked etc…. it would be quick back to dc we don’t care what recess or fact finding mission your on and the news would have to cover the three ring circus LOL.. LOL lol and create a ton of jobs in the process.. no marches.. no threatening jestures just a simple I don’t like this letter would you look into the legislation on it…..

      • this has nothing to do with it or not.. but it is cute..
        I worked sound stage on a Christmas show with Johnathon winters when I was to young to care.. He was a hoot down to earth…. great guy and just as crazy and funny in real life as he is on stage….

  5. Regarding the bride: It’s easier to lose weight when you’re grossly overweight and take four months doing it. I actually read the article since I want to lose 10 lbs this week. No idea how, but I did a 36 hour fast and it helped a bit. Then the smallest possible breakfast to actually swallow my supplements. I think perhaps people were built for three meals a week, not per day. Now I need to get to doing some real physical work!

    That bride also has a full sleeve tattoo. I’m glad she found someone that likes her with it – I personally think it limits your choices far too much.

    • Tats to me are like “brands” on cars, clothes, and booze. They serve little useful purpose unless one is a complete egomaniac. A cheap vodka (1.75 liters for under $20, for example) will get you just as buzzed at the whatever Goose at twice the price. Cars to practical folks like us, Mike, will get 25+ MPG but it doesn’t matter if it’s a Lexus or Toyota – basically the same quality. And on clothes? Other than Jessica Simpson (Elaine when younger) there’s no functional difference between a pair of E’s $600 shoes and her $200 shoes. Strangely, the names are inside and you can’t see them when they’re being worn. Which led me to conclude that since only women can spot the $200 vs $600 difference, perhaps they have X-Ray vision.
      Damn shame the sexes ain’t equal in some regards.

      • “A cheap vodka (1.75 liters for under $20, for example) will get you just as buzzed at the whatever Goose at twice the price.”

        Run the cheap stuff through one more filter.. And you’d never be able to tell the difference..
        Distill it again and you’d boost the alcohol content up to everclear.

      • At that rate, it will clean out the innards, too

        I like just a bit of a buzz. Don’t want to be mistaken for an Aggie, a boilermaker, or Washington State alum…

      • Veering a tad…

        My wife is into clothing. As in designing , manufacturing her own brand ( overseas unfortunately ) and selling wholesale.

        Weve met and know many buyers from some well known companies.

        With this as my back drop , I can say for a fact , that more times than not , most people are truly paying for a label. Even moreso as of late , many retailers wont even change out the labels like they used to. Added expense ! Theyll leave the original label in. This leads me to one example then Ill stop.

        In a local Nordstroms womens section. The EXACT same blazer that I saw earlier in the week which wholesaled for $39 and change had a price tag in Nordstrom of $1,500.00.

        Its your money. Spend it as you wish !

      • Ah…you have made the common mistake of a young man in love.

        You went for a wife who is “into clothing.”

        Trust the old man…you want one “out of clothing…”

        (Gong!)

      • Filtered cheap vodka can taste like Grey Goose:

      • Try Sierra.com (Sierra Trading Post) for clothing. If you get on the Sierra email list, they post a 25% discount with .99 cent shipping once a week for a lot of the merchandise, which is already discounted. Finding name-label clothing 75% off list is no major feat; finding the 97.4% discounts isn’t so easy if you aren’t a reseller. I’ve tried some of the online used clothing places with limited success. Some of the Ebay clothing dealers are reliable.

    • “Regarding the bride:” Or groom..

      my father always taught us.. the same way I taught my kids.. be like a blind man..doesn’t make any difference you are attracted to the person they are inside.. a shell can be gone or marred in seconds..
      so Mike.. unless there is a medical issue.. then eat that piece of cake if you want it and it isn’t going to cause any real issues with your health.. seriously.. who do you have to impress anyway.. and if you have to be a size 29 waist and have the muscles of atlas.. then are they truly worth it..
      I have read some really great books that had the nasty plain covers.. and some really nasty books that had covers that were attractive and vibrant.. its the story inside that counts..

  6. George,
    What’s wrong, poor babies? You boys tired of the headlines? Mass shooters’ tracking Trump’s[George interrupts: KEYWORD TRIGGER: Redacted as useless political bashing and not responsive to what we do around here; hard work, invest, think, offer solutions…]

  7. “cannabis: ‘Now I understand its medicinal attributes’”

    Crack has a medicinal weight shedding ability.

    Afraid of the dentist? The medicinal quality of Meth is teeth removal. After a few months of Meth, no more dental fears.

    LOL

      • “Hell, I get my teeth cleaned because I love the NO2…”

        call me an old pervert.. and screw the NO2 if I had NO2 I would probably say something inappropriate .. I get my teeth cleaned because the hygienist is a sweetie and when shes busy cleaning and the way she snuggles in close to the chair…. well its a good thing they put that little apron thingy on LOL
        Then there is totally the possibility that she notices her affects on this old man and loves to get an old mans blood pressure to increase a few points LOL

      • You, my friend, need to revisit Crosby Stills & Nash (“Love the one you’re with”) and look into the link between NO2 levels and HGH.
        One of the reasons that the very (ultra – uber) rich us HGHG (human growth hormone) is that it really rocks the body’s systems and rolls back the clock. In this regard, there are some supplements like l=-arginine and others that also increase blood NO2 levels.
        But a dose of the real stuff? Which kids used to huff out of whipping cream cans, lol…well, laughing gas is no laughing matter!

    • kind of like that story about the crotch rot..
      guy walks in .. the doctor says oh no.. you have the Hong Kong dong disease..
      what can be done.. we have to surgically remove the infected organ..

      guy doesn’t like that goes into the second and third doctor.. the same prognosis.. finally he sees a doctor in china town..

      the doctor looks at it.. and says.. wow… you have the Hong Kong dong disease…
      the guy looks forlorn and says.. your going to have to cut it off aren’t you..

      Oh no not at all theres no need to cut it off…. the guy perks up.. the doctor then says… its going to fall off in two weeks.. LOL

      how people can get hooked on crack is way beyond my scope of thinking.. why not just snort draino LOL LOL..
      Marijuana.. now that plant has a list of potentials that is so long..it would fill up a semi trailer in paperwork.. amazing plant.. and those that will use it for recreation.. are anyway.. so why not legalize it regulate and tax it just like you do alcohol.. and alcohol has such a short list of potentials that I can really see why they made it illegal.. for marijuana.. the story I liked was it was all about toilet paper and some rich guy that had to much and wanted more…. no matter how much money you pile on the fire of greed you cannot quench it..

      • We need to keep national legalization as one of the gimme’s for the backside of the Depression onset./ So, that’s how you keep people happy in Depression…worked in ’34 will work in ’24 too. Just one major long wave cycle apart’s all

  8. Congrats, George. This is the most significant posting you have made in the last 10 years, since I commented that I was thankful that all of the stuff you write about has no relevance to my life.

    Unfortunately for you, you missed out on 10 years of peace of mind by not living in a place where world events are entertaining but no different from watching a tv show, which incidentally today is difficult to distinguish from a newscast. I think it’s a two way street between people modeling themselves to what they see in the media, and the script/news writers use the people/criminals for new ideas for the shows.

    Fortunately, after what you wrote, we will know that most of what you write is to maintain your business model, and not for anyone’s benefit.

    As long as you keep yourself entertaining and don’t have a large following, they won’t shut you down.

  9. A cat ?! Ure taking advice from a frickin pussy? Ohh noooooo – this can not have a good outcome – several good reasons why they are guardians in the Underworld..

    If U had cocked your head just so, and pricked Ure ears towards the German Shepherd Dog (GSD) you probably would have heard him say something about the Federal (not) Reserves feeble attempt to catch up to…wait for it…

  12. I really enjoyed the “Conversation with Zeus”.
    You might consider making that a regular feature.
    The wife and I have a black cat, so that whole conversation resonated with me.

  13. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the new policy. It is nice to get back to the basics of why I read your work and not the political crap that sets me off and fires me up for the day and ussually not for the good. Stupidity is frustrating enough and we see it every day with life. Throw in the politics and OMG it gets untollerable. But like other stupid things you can’t seem to just see it for what it is you ussually have to call it out.

    Thanks George for putting this pack to normal. Even if there are some stupid people like me still reading your work!!

    • Wayne, we are not stupid, and neither are you, we are life-long learners, and that was getting run over. Now we can get on board Sharing, as Edgar Cayce said: “Be happy–be in the attitude of ever being helpful to others. This will bring that peace within that is the promise from Him.”

      And: ““Keep an even, normal balance in diet of body, diet of mind, and the use and associations of same in every way; for as a man thinketh in his heart (not as he speaks, but as he thinketh in his heart) so is he. So, keep the body fit, keep the mind fit. Do not allow little antagonisms of body OR mind to undo that thou hast builded in thine experience.”

      George: EC: “Mind is indeed the Builder . . . what is held in the act of mental vision becomes a reality in the material experience. We are gradually builded to that image created within our own mental being.” Also: “Dreams are today’s answers to tomorrow’s questions.”

      And: George; for you who give so much: ““For all that ye may ever keep is just what you give away, and that you give away is advice, counsel, manner of life you live yourself.” The manner in which you treat your fellow man, your patience, your brotherly love, your kindness, your gentleness. That you give away, that is all that ye may possess in those other realms of consciousness.”

      And: “Keep the Pineal Gland operating and you will Never grow Old, You will always be Young.”

      And: “First, know thine own ideal – spiritual, mental and material; not as to what ye would have others do, but what ye would do for others.”

      And for you and Elaine: “Soul mates are brought together for a reason. All their lives they have been preparing for each other. When they look back at their lives they will see a new purpose to actions they have taken. Their lives take on a sense of oneness equalled by no other. Oneness of purpose, ambition, and love which can be a beacon to others along their spiritual paths.”

      For Elaine: “For, as has been indicated from the innate experience as well as from the longings within, a home – home – with all its deeper, inner meanings, is a portion of the entity’s desire; to know, to experience, to have the “feel” of, to have the surroundings of that implied by the word home! Is it any wonder then that in all of thy meditation, Ohm-O-h-m-mmmmm has ever been, is ever a portion of that which raises self to the highest influence and the highest vibrations throughout its whole being that may be experienced by the entity?”

      Andy: EC: ““The Word – is the key to life. – When man speaks the word “I Am” he directly links himself with God.”

      And: ““How to develop the psychic forces? So live in body, in mind, that self may be a channel through which the Creative Forces may run. How is the current of life or of modern science used in the commercial world? By preparing a channel through which same may run into, or through, that necessary for the use in the material things. So with the body mentally, physically, spiritually, so make the body, the mind, the spiritual influences, a channel-and the natural consequence will be the manifestations.

      And: “How best, then, to develop those latent forces in one now, those who have reached the years of maturity or responsibility in self? Let that mind be in you as was in Him who thought it not robbery to make Himself equal with God, yet took on Himself the burden of all, that through His physical suffering, His privation in body, in mind, there might come the blessings to others. Not self, but others. He, or she, that may lose self, then, for others, may develop those faculties that will give the greater expression of psychic forces in their experience.”

      And: “As God’s purpose is to glorify the individual [hu]man (or soul) in the earth, so the highest purpose of an individual soul or entity is to glorify the Creative Energy or God in the earth.””

      And: “For a man is a little lower than the angels, yet was made that he might become the companion of the Creative Forces; and thus was given–in the breath of life–the individual soul, the stamp of approval as it were of the Creator; with the ability to know itself to be itself, and to make itself, as one with the Creative Forces–irrespective of other influences.”

      NM Mike: EC: “Individuals do not meet by chance. They are necessary in the experiences of others, though they may not always use their opportunities in a spiritual way or manner.”

      And: “When ye are prepared for a thing, the opportunity to use it presents itself.”

      And: “A soulmate is an ongoing connection with another individual that the soul picks up again in various times and places over lifetimes. We are attracted to another person at a soul level not because that person is our unique complement, but because by being with that individual, we are somehow provided with an impetus to become whole ourselves.”

      And: “(Q)Please explain for me what is meant by “soul-mate” . . .
      (A) Those of any sect or group where there is the answering of one to another; as would be the tongue to the groove, the tenon to the mortise; or in any such where they are a complement one of another–that is what is meant by “soul-mate.” Not that as from physical attraction, but from the mental and spiritual help.”

      And: “Keep about the body congenial companionship, or make self express congeniality in whatever environ or sphere of activity the period may carry the body.”

      Mike/Mark: EC: “Know that the fault ye find in others is a reflection of a fault in thyself. Be to others just as you would have others be to thee, and ye will remove much of that.”

      And: “This is harder than it first appears: Try in thine own experience, each; that ye speak not for one whole day unkindly of any; that ye say not a harsh word to any, about any; and see what [such] a day would bring to you . . .”

      Nancy, for comfort: EC: “Birth in the physical is death in the spiritual. Death in the physical is birth in the spiritual.”

      And: “Meditate, oft. Separate thyself for a season from the cares of the world. Get close to nature and learn from the lowliest of that which manifests in nature, in the earth; in the birds, in the trees, in the grass, in the flowers, in the bees; that the life of each is a manifesting, is a song of glory to its Maker. And do thou likewise!”

      And: “For perfect love casteth out fear, and fear can only be from the material things that soon must fade away. And thus hold to the higher thought of eternity. For life is a continual experience.”

      Bryce: EC: “There is progress whether ye are going forward or backward! The thing is to move!”

      LOOB; for your constancy in goodness: EC: “Know in self that in giving a helpful influence, the magnifying of virtues in others and the minimizing of faults is the beginning of wisdom in dealing with others.”

      And: “You get to heaven on the arms of people you have helped.”

      And: “Thus the purpose of each experience is that the entity may magnify and glorify that which is good. For, good is of the one source, God, and is eternal.Then as an individual entity magnifies that which is good, and minimizes that which is false, it grows in grace, in knowledge, in understanding.”

      And: “For until ye become as a savior, as a help to some soul that has lost hope, lost its way, ye do not fully comprehend the god within, the god without.”

      For Everyone: EC:

      And: “You don’t go to heaven, you grow to heaven.”

      And: “There is so much good in the worst of us, and so much bad in the best of us, it doesn’t behoove any of us to speak evil of the rest of us.”

      And: “If you learn music you’ll learn most all there is to know.”

      And: “If you learn music, you’ll learn history. If you learn music, you’ll learn mathematics. If you learn music, you’ll learn most all there is to learn.”

      And: “For, as has been indicated from the innate experience as well as from the longings within, a home – home – with all its deeper, inner meanings, is a portion of the entity’s desire; to know, to experience, to have the “feel” of, to have the surroundings of that implied by the word home! Is it any wonder then that in all of thy meditation, Ohm-O-h-m-mmmmm has ever been, is ever a portion of that which raises self to the highest influence and the highest vibrations throughout its whole being that may be experienced by the entity?”

      And: “For, he that expects nothing shall not be disappointed, but he that expects much – if he lives and uses that in hand day by day – shall be full to running over.”

      And: “The entity should keep close to all of those things that have to do with outdoor activities, for it is the best way to keep yourself young–to stay close to nature, close to those activities in every form of exercise that breathes in the deep ozone and the beauty of nature. For you may breathe it into thine own soul, as you would a sunset or a morning sun rising. And see that sometimes–it’s as pretty as the sunset!”

      And: “Then, to be able to remember the sunset, to be able to remember a beautiful conversation, a beautiful deed done where hope and faith were created, to remember the smile of a babe, the blush of a rose, the harmony of a song–a bird’s call; these are creative. For if they are a part of thyself, they bring you closer and closer to God.”

      And: “To express love in thine activities to thy neighbor is the greater service that a soul may give in this mundane sphere.”

      And: “Great numbers of children will be born who understand electronics and atomic power as well as other forms of energy. They will grow into scientists and engineers of a new age which has the power to destroy civilization unless we learn to live by spiritual laws.”

      And: “For all prayer is answered. Don’t tell God how to answer it. Make thy wants known to Him. Live as if ye expected them to be answered. For He has given, “What ye ask in my name, believing, that will my Father in heaven give to thee.”

      And: “Actually, we have no problems, we have opportunities for which we should give thanks. An error we refuse to correct has many lives. It takes courage to face one’s own shortcomings and wisdom to do something about them…”

      And: “As there has been given, dreams are of different natures, and have their inception from influences either in the body, in the mind, or from the realm of activity without the body through the desires and purposes of the soul itself.”

      And: “Each one who has a soul has a psychic power–but remember, brother, there are no shortcuts to God!”

      And: “Anyone can find fault. It is the wise person who finds that which encourages another in the turmoils and strifes of the day.”

      And: “There is today, every day, set before thee good and evil, life and death–choose thou. For only self can separate you from the love of the Father. For it should be manifested to thee that thou art conscious in a living world, aware of suffering, of sorrow, of joy, of pleasure. These, to be sure, are the price one pays for having will, knowledge. But let that knowledge be spent in a way and manner to help others. For as ye do to thy fellow man ye do to thy Maker.”

      And: “Q- What is the highest possible psychic realization … ?
      A- That God, the Father, speaks directly to the sons of men-even as He has promised. 440-4”

      And: “Did you ever try to pray for somebody? That their lives might be changed?”

      And: “Don’t feel sorry for yourself if you have chosen the wrong road, turn around.”

      And: “Through prayer we speak to God. In meditation, God speaks to us.”

      And: “Live as if ye expected (your prayers) to be answered.”

      And: “Sound will be the medicine of the future.”

      And: “The medicine of the future will be music and sound.”

      And: “Forces of light on earth shall overcome the force of darkness. Complete spiritual enlightenment on earth will occur.”

      And: “Yesterday is but a memory, Tomorrow an uncharted course, so live today so it will be a memory without remorse.”

      And: “Make the world a better place because you have lived in it.”

      And: “Smile often. Speak gently. Be kind.”

      And: “Grace is the wonderful spirit that imbues every fiber of our being when we practice the fruits of the spirit: kindness, patience, understanding, forgiveness, love, gentleness, fellowship and endurance.”

      And: “It is not all of life to live, nor yet all of death to die. For life and death are one, and only those who will consider the experience as one may come to understand or comprehend what peace indeed means.”

      And: “For most people, lack of consistent, persistent effort is the biggest obstacle.”

      And: “The conquering of self is truly greater than were one to conquer many worlds.”

      And: “Know first that no urge, no influence, is greater than the will of the self to do what it determines to accomplish in any direction – whether physically, mentally, or spiritually.”

      And: “There may be different channels of approach, yes. For not all peoples walked in the field when the wheat was ripe. Neither did all stand at the tomb when Lazarus was called forth. Neither were they all present when He walked on the water, nor when He fed the five thousand, nor when He hung on the Cross. Yet each experience answered, and does answer to something within each individual soul-entity. For each soul is a corpuscle in the body of God.”

      And: “Through Russia, comes the hope of the world. Not in respect to what is sometimes termed Communism or Bolshevism – no! But freedom – freedom! That each man will live for his fellow man. The principle has been born there. It will take years for it to be crystallized; yet out of Russia comes again the hope of the world.”

      And: “For until ye are willing to lose thyself in service, ye may not indeed know that peace which He has promised to give–to all.”

      And in memory of my beloved Grandparents (3) and Mother and Father who art in heaven as they all demonstrated to us growing up: “There is no love without sacrifices.”

      • Duuuddddddde!!!!! ++++

        Heart to heart. ^^^^^ womdeful and sooo beautifu! This made me cry. So beautiful and very intuitively written. You touched my soul.

        You know the Masters say, there is a single sacred “rose” in every relm. This simple but elegant flower, is the conduit and creator of the entire relm. To touch it, would transport you to the center of the universe. <3

        "as he thinketh in his heart". 'The Bundle of His' is made up of purkinje cells, same cells found in the brain and are 100 times more active.

        Hmmmmmm…

  16. Dear Mr. Ure,

    If the world has become a global village, is it also moving towards idiocy? One may well wonder after reading this BBC “Future” article which describes a slippery slope as AI capabilities conceivably could direct the flavor of human-penned writings through predictive text. According to the article, some children of PTB tech company execs in Silicon Valley have been placed in an expensive private school that keeps digital soma out of the reach of impressionable minds. One imagines stupidity for all others will be suitably mind-numbing to process a predictive life going forward in the digital widget cube.

    Should be fun. Drink some cactus water. Hahah

  18. I’ve noticed discontent brewing with the Christian apocalytics:

    https://z3news.com/w/prophetic-dream-warns-deception/

    Sounds a lot like Stu’s stuff. Apparently a lot of this material has been held back until recently. I’m not really sure what to make of it, other than to think that some cracks are forming in the coalition.
    With the fuse lit on the Indo-Paki grudge rematch, it’s hard to tell whom is taking sides with whom, and which alliances are real. The idea that a nuclear slugfest will stay regional, and the neocons will enforce American neutrality doesn’t sound plausible. What’s the cat’s position on this ?
