... eventually; the illusion of time depends on it.
A reader asks:
I keep seeing online lots of discussion about some cataclysm taking place on the 23rd September. I can't see things being any different to any other day myself. But would [The Committee] be willing to enlighten us?
Says The Committee: Have you seen that day? You shall see, as shall we.
Before have we spoken on this subject and again we visit.
The Earth time illusion is created by rotation. We observe the sphere of Earth as it does, the steady circling of the planet about the sun and the spinning of the globe along its course.
For an arrow launched at Earth, a date on the human calendar and a time on the human clock will be marked by the precise location where the tip strikes upon the numbered revolution humans assign.
The arrow is a part of neither human calendars nor clocks.
Are recent earthquakes and storms not occurring close to this date? Accurate is the discussion, if not precise enough for some human preference.
A reader asks:
[Does] TC (The Committee) have any specific advice for weathering the current and upcoming upheaval events to the planet specifically regarding empaths (like me) who truly suffer mentally and physically under these circumstances?
Paraphrasing the reply for speed; everybody is empathic to a degree, the differences are acknowledgement of the effect, itself derived from willingness to recognize it exists. Saying you're an empath means you're far along with acceptance of it, which you can turn to your advantage. Blissfully unaware people might SEEM to be more insulated from the energy of major events, but they are not. The energy emerges at a different moment for them and it can be to the detriment of the person, in some cases. They can have symptoms of panic, anger, anxiety or fear AND not know why.
Step one, says The Committee: stop using words like "truly suffer mentally and physically". Such talent, ability and understanding are NOT an affliction, disease, debilititating condition or problem unless framed that way. Using negatively connotated words to describe a positive, enlightened aspect of your ability does you no good.
Here's an example they give; you visit or camp in a rural area. A wild boar or two, maybe a pack, comes snooping around, attracted by the smell of something you've brought. You scare the animal(s) and one comes on the offensive (fanged, wild hogs can turn aggressive and dangerously so, unlike the pink farm variety.) You are forced to fire a gun to protect yourself. The muzzle blast scares away the boar. Are you disturbed and do you suffer because of the noise, the sudden fear you felt and the good scare you put in the animal? Or do you look at the positive outcome to a risky encounter, glad that you were prepared and unharmed, and also relieved you were not forced to harm the attacking animal(s) to protect yourself? If the animal was badly hurt or killed, are you to blame for protecting yourself?
You can't control animal(s) any more than occurrences of serious events, such as Hurricane Maria, which has just done great damage to Dominica, St. Croix in the Virgin islands and Puerto Rico, or yesterday's Mexico earthquake. YOU CAN control your reaction by actively, affirmatively choosing to see the positive side of the feelings & sensations washing over automatically.
Packing & unpacking boxes, I just recently found and re-read parts of book I bought in 1993. Up to that time, its author had contributed to my favorite car magazine (and has occasionally since) leading me to his many excellent books.
As I ran over these quotes, The Committee leaped in to tell me they were channeled to the author. The purpose was to describe the human tendency & proclivity for organization of society and why this approach & view are a significant current source of tension, stress and desire for something to change. Change is coming and in fact, occurs as I write & you read these words, however effects and perception that change has happened, will not be obvious until nearly or entirely finished.
On with the quotes:
"Authority has always attracted the lowest elements in the human race. All through history, mankind has been bullied by scum. Those who lord it over their fellows and toss commands in every direction and would boss the grass in the meadow about which way to bend in the wind are the most depraved kind of prostitutes. They will submit to any indignity, perform any vile act, do anything to achieve power. The worst off-sloughings of the planet are the ingredients of sovereignty. Every government is a parliament of whores. The trouble is, in a democracy the whores are us."
"No drug, not even alcohol, causes the fundamental ills of society. If we're looking for the source of our troubles, we shouldn't test people for drugs, we should test them for stupidity, ignorance, greed and love of power."
- P.J. O'Rourke, Parliament of Whores, ©1991 Atlantic Monthly Press, New York.
Who should decide what stupdity, ignorance and greed really are? Love of power is a lot easier to define. How many world leaders since the early 1990s, elected and otherwise (e.g. Barack Obama, Saddam Hussein, Vladimir Putin, Donald Trump, Haffez Assad and Tony Blair to name a mere half dozen examples) fit well the 3 adjectives? They all ADORE the power we supply; the final line of the first quote refers.
Now reported are shortages of gasoline across Texas. Other places in the USA?
A good deal of what's produced at Texas and Louisiana refineries makes its way across the nation by pipeline, those are unaffected this time, if not moving much fuel.
A significant event causing not simply a shutdown but permanent closure of a significant portion of refining or transport capacity, will cause prices of fuel to shoot up until equilibrium is re-established; supply increases and/or demand falls. Repeated events will cause an ever increasing rise in the price.
We're seeing one effect of The Shift now, to be repeated. You are aware.
