Dealing With Gun Violence

Violence is an issue mankind has been wrestling with since Cain slew Abel. We are certainly not as violent a people as we were even a short time ago, but developments in technology have given today’s individual a killing power unknown in human history. We must, if we are to remain a civilized society, take steps to control the public exposure to this threat.

What's Happening?

A lot of people are asking the same question - "What in the devil is happening?" Maybe you've wondered the same thing. With the almost daily mass murders, cop killings, the messy political process, wildfires, immigration issues, racial conflict, the drought, refugees, global warming, the wars in Middle East and the Zika virus, it can seem like the place is coming apart!

End of The World

I am asked frequently about the “end of the world” predictions. First of all, the Mayans never predicted the end of the world. What they did address was the end of your world, and that’s a very significant difference. I want to investigate what that is likely to mean for you.

The Future

We are all concerned about the future, but dealing with it presents difficulties. Predictions are generally fuzzy and non-specific and it can be difficult to know exactly what to do with them. There is also a larger issue – we avoid making changes until we have to.

The End of Days I

Although it only erupts in limited locales today, a great global conflict is taking place between capitalism and socialism. It is not discussed in these terms, it is being positioned as a religious conflict between Christianity and Islam (and Judaism), but that is just political spin doctoring. The real conflict is about greed versus community and whether spirituality is more important than money, technology and economic power. If you have read the articles on my web site about Islam, you know that the Islamic world has a great many things it needs to change, but commitment to spiritual values is not one of them.

The End of Days II

Five thousand years ago the Hindus predicted that around the year 2,000 A.D. an end would come the age of Kaliki Yoga (The Age of Darkness or The Iron Age) and the Kalki Avatar would usher in the age of Krta Yuga – the Golden Age. Similarly, 5,260 years ago the Mayans predicted the end of the 5th Great Cycle in 2012. They predicted that the transit between ages would be a period of significant upheaval. The Hopi do not assign dates to their predictions, but their scenarios (the gourd of ashes) correlate very closely with those of the Hindu and Maya.
