| A PERSONAL NOTE
I'm feeling a little sad, as though the summer is flying by with such peculiar weather patterns that we in the Mid-Atlantic states have not had a stretch of what used to be
normal weather. We had a cool and rainy spring, then recently ten days of very hot sun - actually amounting to a drought in which all of our lawns turned brown and crispy and our trees and bushes drooped - and now our local forecast shows the potential for thunderstorms for at least the next ten days! As the summer days recede, and whereas my eyes have improved considerably from the recent cataract surgeries so that I can see better to drive at night, I don't look forward to the inevitable shortening of daylight and climate cooling that the approach of Fall brings.
Of course, seasonal weather changes are perfectly normal. But it feels as though the weather has been anything but ordinary; it makes me recall prophecies about the
End Times that include "weird weather patterns."
What are the End Times anyhow? Does it mean the end of the Age of Pisces and the beginning of the Age of Aquarius? Certainly, there's a lot of global turmoil besides weather catastrophes and abnormalities. Many people feel polarized, intolerant, and impatient, so maybe we're sensing a chaos that's ushering in a new age. Speaking to friends and clients, people have voiced anxiety, concern for their future, worries about their country, and doubts about whether we're really evolving upwards or devolving into brutish behavior.
One thing that always makes me feel good, more optimistic, and revitalized in my spiritual journey are the wonderful videos posted mainly on Facebook in which the animal kingdom including birds and even fish are responding to people's love, showing great desire to be hugged or petted, and even helping or rescuing others from different species as they are able. This makes me feel that the Earth itself is evolving upward in a spiritual direction.
So as storms rage, drought afflicts, the seasons and weather seem topsy-turvy, and we are faced with physical and emotional challenges, I can still find evidence that we're making progress as a world.
Now, as further antidote to gloom, I'm going to get a massage, read a book, and have a nice low-carb lunch!
Smiles and love as always,

JENNINGSWIRE BLOG POST
Judi Thomases is a frequent contributor to JenningsWire.com
and has her own page on the site. Annie Jennings PR is a National Publicity Firm that works with authors, speakers and experts in book promotion,
First let's say it: life isn't fair. That's a fact. There are the Haves and the Have-Nots; some people seem a lot luckier or blessed than others. But here's another fact: karma is absolutely and perfectly fair.
You reap what you sow. What goes around, comes around. Etc.
Lately, there seems to be a great deal of talk about entitlement and privilege. These concepts have even taken on some pejorative meanings in certain discourses. However, what is often left out of the discussion about who is entitled or who has (unfair) privilege is the entire idea of
There have been protests that certain groups of people having intrinsic privilege in our society. For example, the term
white privilege is used to protest unfair advantage that one race has over some others. But on the other hand, there are social programs such as Affirmative Action that can be interpreted as privilege for African-Americans over other races. The term privilege is defined in the (Cambridge English) dictionary as "a special advantage or authority possessed by a particular person or group;" or "a peculiar benefit, advantage, or favor, a prerogative" (Merriam-Webster) granted to this group, perhaps based on skin color, socio-economic class, hereditary status, and so forth. As a definition, it simply describes what a person or group enjoys as against what others don't. So, while it's always agreeable to have privilege, anyone who protests one group's privileges is immediately categorizing themselves as un- or under-privileged (in other words, as victimized). Thus, the group of this type of have-nots protests because it lacks whatever the privilege is.
Meantime, entitlement is another hot-button concept. Some groups are entitled in terms of legal status, even including government programs. This would be under the header of legal entitlement. For instance, Social Security benefits fall into this category. But other groups feel entitled psychologically. Wikipedia suggests three varieties of this type of psychological entitlement, including "unrealistic, exaggerated, or rigidly held", the latter being "especially prominent among narcissists." This negative sense of entitlement is often mentioned in regards to younger generations who were raised to feel that they should have certain rights, possessions, or ease simply by existing!
And so, we find ourselves as a society experiencing an upsurge of people protesting that they don't have all the privileges that they are entitled to (in their mind). The protesters feel outraged about this state of affairs but have no clear plan as to how society and government should meet the conditions to which they feel entitled or envious of those who are so advantaged.
Okay, so now let's talk about karma. Let's get back to Square One that life isn't fair. Why isn't life fair? Why are some people born with less privileges, or feel more victimized, than others? In a benevolent universe shouldn't everyone have the same rights, privileges, entitlements, and good fortune? Well, karma doesn't work that way. Your prior actions in life determine how much good fortune and benefit you deserve in this life as well as how much challenge you need to encounter in order to learn gratitude, humility, and compassion (these are the treasured components of wisdom). Not everyone was a darling or a saint in their past!
To realize that you chose the conditions of your birth - what race, what society, what gender, which parents, what faith, and what number of blessings or difficulties you would encounter - is to achieve understanding, learn acceptance, and continue your struggle from that point onward rather than to wallow in the unfairness of your victimhood.
This is not to say that society can't continue to strive to give its member the benefits of greater privilege and entitlement as far as is realistically possible. This might, for example, take the form of activism for social programs. However, once members of a society exhibit rage against their fate, insistence that others give them what they lack, and self-defeating behavior that moves them further away from their goals, then you have what in metaphysics is called
ignorance, ignorance being the total lack of ownership of your particular karma and all its predicaments. It's only when you acknowledge that the law of karma is perfect, and that if you lack privilege or what you feel entitled to, it was your doing in the first place , it's then that you can see the fairness of life. Until then, you will not evolve, and will stay stuck in your anger and attached to your suffering.

"Origin" - by Dan Brown (2017, Doubleday)
Dan Brown is the bestselling author of a number of novels such as The DaVinci Code and The Lost Symbol in which his chief protagonist, Harvard professor of symbology and religious iconology Robert Langdon, finds himself embroiled in what amounts to a fast-paced thriller with a mystery that must be solved. Brown's formulaic work explores themes connected to Christianity and arcane knowledge set in contemporary situations. Three have been made into major motion pictures because he is a good storyteller.
In this novel, the author weaves together a story in which science and technology are pitted against religion, with both intertwined around a bold conceit: an inventor is making the claim that his discovery will be the end of science and religion as we know it, and will answer the two key questions, Where did we come from? and Where are we going?
To tell his story, Brown sets it in Spain, and features the renowned architect Antoni Gaudi's amazing church, the Sagrada Familia, and other famous sites such as General Francisco Franco's monument to his terrible dictatorial reign called the Valley of the Fallen, as well as the Spanish monarchy, and a schism within the Catholic Church that's known as the Palmerians versus the Vatican, while using literary references to Nietzsche and William Blake that drive the plot. As his young tech genius billionaire, Edward Kirsch, Langdon's own former student at Harvard, readies the presentation that he hopes will change the world based upon the portentous announcement of his discoveries, he is assassinated on stage. The remaining two-thirds of the book tantalizes the reader with the reveal of this momentous discovery, and how Langdon and his various cast of characters suspensefully manage to facilitate the public downloading of the last remaining computer file containing the grand proclamation. As usual, the quest contains violence, mystery, and confusion, and seems to challenge religion only to bring the story full circle at its conclusion into a means of salvaging God from the wide-ranging atheistic attack.
The big reveal [SPOILER ALERT] is that science, utilizing codes and patterns, can now generate life in the laboratory, thus negating the role of a Creator. The author himself, wrestling with the concept of the origin and destiny of humans, thus conceives of a new evolutionary stage called the Technium in which humans and artificial intelligence (A.I.) form a union that no longer requires the intervention of an external figure (God). So, this becomes the fictional tech genius' "world-changing" finding.
To me, this book is not metaphysical because of two big issues: one is that the concept of God as something outside of creation is found primarily in the Western model of religion, whereas many other major world religions see God as immanent in creation, i.e., embodied in every bit of nature, in every material and non-material expression that ever existed or ever will exist. Thus, Brown's central thesis of destroying religion by removing an external God from the equation of creation is logical mainly to Western religion's worldview but fails to make sense from others'.
My second quibble is that science, especially on the quantum level, has recently in fact discovered that observation and thought are the energy-constructs that create the illusion of solidity. Therefore, the newest real science - quantum physics - has begun to fathom all of creation much as Perennial Philosophy's consistent viewpoint: it is simply The Great Thought. Maya. Illusion. The Holographic Universe. All material reality emanating from the singular mind or source of the Cosmic Creator (whatever that turns out to be as we might comprehend). Even if we are grown in a lab... even if we merge with robots... even if we remove an external anthropomorphic Being on a cloud in heaven... it's all still God (and we are becoming more and more godlike as we evolve). God, as seen spiritually rather than religiously, simply cannot be removed from the equation, as Brown is postulating via his tech genius' great discovery!
Entertaining fluff but ultimately unsatisfying. 2 stars.

Teachings of The Brotherhood of Light Workers
By Judi Thomases
The following segment has been received, word for word through a psychic process known as channeling. It is an invited procedure. The teachings always serve to guide
us through the journey of life. Compilations of many such messages are available in book, PDF and audio formats:
Compilation of BoLW's Messages
Today's world is not the same as any previous, any other, for it has been and is being created in the moment by all participants. And so, it certainly does not look like what is familiar, traditional, and at least considered controllable. Because of the sheer number of participants in today's world, globally from all cultures, ethnicities, backgrounds, and value systems, due in large part because of the internet and the sharing of experience, the composite looks and feels like a hodgepodge. And so, it is.
There has been no calm and gradual path to this state. Instead, it has been reached (relatively) overnight, and as such contains the seeds of many clashing goals, many differing realities, and much testing to achieve consensus and duration even while the sense of being overwhelmed, confused, angry and hopeless pervades and increases.
None of this is a mistake from our point of view, for as long as humanity was able to live in self-contained spheres such as families, tribes, and nations, inherent differences could prevail and last for centuries. But Planet Earth is being pushed into the requirement of unity, with the result that most everyone is kicking and screaming against this merging and is expressing the cumulative reaction that can be called RESISTANCE.
There is irony here, for as each previously separate group, be it clan or country, feels forced into a new pattern, a new reality, each feels the need to put up resistance and express anger that this has been thrust upon their quiet existence. The global village is, in this sense, not sorrowful but in a phase of being birthed. Some newborns slide down the birth canal easily and come into this world with a smile on their little faces and a readiness to tackle life, but many newborns are pushed down through that birth canal, fighting all the way against the forced evacuation from the safety and comfort of the womb. Humanity is like the newborn at this moment, that newborn which emphatically does not want change and tremendously resists the challenges of the new life, the new world.
If you can take this higher perspective on all that is going on, the struggles and the despair as well as the triumphs and the newness, as observer you will find serenity. You will see this process as necessary and you will not shake your fist at God or the fates for the state that the world has gotten itself into. In truth, much time must elapse for there to be more of a sense of consensus and equanimity. What takes time will produce good results. Have faith that this is so, and sit back and enjoy the show!
