Whither Goest Thou, America?

Atlantis was a dream

We all carry this hope, this dream of a once beautiful place within us, we try to create again. Perhaps, these mythical places, Atlantis, Camelot, Shambhala, are focal points of energy where our human destiny can be manifest.

It can be a place. It can be a person. It can be you or wherever you are.

I made a short statement after 9/11 on my web site, September 21, 2001: “More than any thing else at this time what the American people need is a person who can articulate all that is best about being American and inspire them to be the people they can be. I hope that person will show up soon”.

Barack’s the one March 08, 2008


“Barack Obama is the one I hoped would show up. If you look just at the karmic coincidence of his middle name, Hussein, and that he’s a black man now poised to be President, then that’s enough for me. America has too many crimes in its name to ignore the possibility of redemption here.

Please note I am not predicting he’ll win the nomination, let alone the Presidency. That will depend on the choices people make. The chances that the election will be stolen once again is high. But the possibilities!…

Yes, he’s inexperienced, but when greatness is inherent in you, you rise to the challenge. A good person may make mistakes, but the damage that can be done by profoundly flawed and compromised people like Hillary Clinton and John McCain, for all their ‘experience’, is infinitely worse. Good people, on the other hand, tend to do good things.”

And Now What? November 05, 2008

This is a time for greatness

“I had a vision a full year ago, and, when every one thought Hillary Clinton would win, knew he would be the Democratic candidate. I said as much, on a political website. Astrology helped confirm that to me, and also that it would not be the day for John McCain (bad time for Virgos) but didn’t want to raise hopes. Whatever I might believe, I would say that it would depend on the effort of people. It simply is unfair to put all our expectations on one person when in the end we all had to make the effort, not just him.

And in the years ahead, and they will not be easy, he must do his share, as we must do ours. But if he inspires us to be better people, then that will be enough. Yes, he has to end the wars abroad. He can cure the economy, if he allows compassion to take over from greed. He has to bring peace to the Middle East. He has to help heal America, and the World. But that isn’t his job alone, it’s ours.

It is so karmic, a racially mixed black man born of a Muslim father, to come to this place at this time in History. At a time of such division, this is a good sign. The future is so fraught with danger I will only say this: unless you make peace with the Muslim world, there will only continue to be war. And there is a lot more I can say, and I will later, but this is his day, so I am going to just give you a story about his essential humanity…”


Who knows?

“As we all know, the last four years have been deeply disappointing for many. I’ve heard all the excuses, and have no patience for them. Whoever wins the election, we have learned our lesson. There needs to be many grassroots movements, in every possible way, and all over the world.

But, for the next four years, keep this in mind. Obama’s humanity, his flaws, are reflected in us. The Great White Father (and Mother) resides not in heaven, or London, or Washington, but is within us. Hope, and change, will always come from you, and not another.

Yes, the ultimate source is God. Does God listen, and give justice? Yes, but not the way you think, because it happens here, on this plane, and in our karma. From now to the end of this year will be one of the most momentous periods of our lives. But, whatever else comes our way, I will always trust in the goodness of humanity.”

But there was also this, a rather long writing about prophecy, but briefly:

America, The Spiritual March 20, 2011

First, acknowledge the wrongs

“Yesterday, March 19, was the 8th anniversary of the war in Iraq. It also was the day of the supermoon, when the moon is closest to earth and coincides with a full moon. This rare event signifies great human change, and yes, it was interesting to see all that energy flow by. And yesterday, America went to war with Libya, another great historical wrong.

I have written a lot already about This Stupid, Stupid War and another, a prophecy I made in 1977 called War. I’ve written many times about my hope for peace but recognizing that peace can only come from inside us. But this article is about the change that must take place in America.

I have always been drawn to and studied the spiritual destiny of America. It was destined for greatness but so far has only been rich and powerful, and never, great. Without acknowledging and changing the wrongs of its past, it will never be great…”

So now we come to this. Several U.S states will be holding their primaries June 07 and we shall see what happens then. I’ve said many a time it will never be a political or social revolution, even though I wish my American friends all the best and hope the right person wins. We are too emotionally and spiritually divided, and so what we require is a different revolution to heal and make us complete.

You know where to find me.
