World Message of Peace

It is Christmas at Tea at Tympani Lane Records. As the winter rolls in, the warm temperate days feel like Archangel Ariel is hovering above Montreal beating his wings, keeping the city safe and warm.

I am holding an Open House to celebrate the Season on December 23rd – 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., friends of Tea at Tympani Lane Records are encouraged to drop by, it is B.Y.O.B. and optional Pot Luck.

The following are thoughts on the truth about poverty in North America . . .

The North American design machine is a patriarchal system that values money and sex, throws its children to the wind, often people become whores (karmically impure in serial relationships) or stuck in celibacy or ill-suited marriages or some version of dis-ease in their love lives. People look at street people and see pariahs or ask why is this happening? The system is a hypocrite, people who support the cursehold system of culture often wonder why street people exist when the act of cursing someone may make them a rape victim or celibate or some version of unhappy violence in their love lives, often leading to addictions, suicide or violence. Others may think of street people as pariahs, “they are taking monies from my cheque for their welfare monies.” People with jobs who are effectively raised and know what they are doing in their love lives and are effectively guided for their calling for work may sometimes be judgmental, as if they blame the poor for their poverty. It is time to stop blaming the poor for being poor. Often the poor, because they’ve suffered so incredibly may be artists and economic drivers, who are really “the talent” they come up with new ideas for the mainstream society. And everyone loves someone, love isn’t about how much monies someone has. The poor may be victims of unwise choices in lovers or a lack of socialization in culture or not knowing about the Spirit Rules, an unhappy and conflicted home life. It is a hidden agenda society, people with wealth and influence may have elite security paradigms, ex-lovers may be looking for you or you may be being punished for being perceived as not operating properly or for not having made the right decisions and this may influence your opportunities, job opportunities. In the reduced employment of the Transition Economy to a computerized society there is less work, it is intrinsic.

The white cursehold system is too easy to use and when people use it, often to keep ex-lovers, they have hurt someone, these people may end up in broken relationships, leading to addictions, mental institutions, addictions, suicide, prisons and violence. If they are very unstable, from rape and bullying, like a form of karmic reckoning they may end up out in the street. Sometimes people with conflicted and neglectful family backgrounds, may have trouble with their love lives and end up as addicts and street people. The white cursehold system is not about preventing violence and it is not particularly about who is righteous it is about making people suffer to feed the elites businesses and forcing compliance in love lives, often for elite security paradigms.

Better socialization - an explanation of the Way of the Spirit (the karmic rules of the Holy Spirit) and an understanding of cultural rules, better feedback about who you are (strengths, weaknesses, talents, someone who loves them and guides them). A society that cares about its children and actually gives them the information they need so they grow up to have happy productive lives and happy love lives.

A Healing of Wounds from the Original Family – Deep Process Work – getting rid of the anger about being rejected, bullied or neglected by the original family. Healing these wounds before getting into a longterm intimate relationship will set the groundwork for a covenant lovelife. Make certain you are fully socialized, rely on the grapevine, elders, friends, reliables (school teachers or anyone of good reputation and in a state of grace) and extended family members.

Better mentoring and discernment in love lives. Be aware of the Spirit Rules of marriage discernment (Star-crossed lovers, the discernment prayer) the unofficial rules of the economy/love lives and the unofficial rules of culture, including possible elite security paradigms. Know yourself and know what you want in an intimate relationship, you should be similar psychological types (perhaps sharing the same job type), have no serious mismatching soul colours, like their physical looks, may be distant cousins and love each others inner child (or be Star-crossed on a Sign from God). Have no enemies. Figure out other peoples “hidden agendas” for you. If there seems to be a problem with people, try to find confederates in your family, elders, friends or move to the city your family is from to figure out what is going on. The better mentored an intimate relationship is, the more likely they may wander back to you or make an accomadation for you if they leave. If you are a young person, each relationship (5) before turning karmically impure should be carefully considered so that it may become a happy longterm covenant, that being said, I suspect the majority of people do not marry their first lover. If a lover leaves do not curse them more than a slight of public opinion. (Ask a lot of questions.)

Disparity issues. I estimate only about half of the employable population is working full-time, the other half is in part-time, contract work or unemployed. And there are great disparities with a minority of people having huge amounts of monies, while the rest of the population is wanting. With the transition economy morphing into the computerized society, there are less traditional jobs and by the nature of the streamlining beast, less employment. If all people who could work and wanted to work were in part-time employment with a minimum take-home wage there would be incredible weight off the system, less welfare recipients, less burnout issues and health issues, less absenteeism. People should be better mentored, take free aptitude tests over the Internet and be in their calling for work. If you love your work it is like play and you are more likely to be happy and if it matches your talents/aptitude you are more likely to be good at it. If you had the choice to be on welfare or to work what would you do? Anyone who has been unemployed for an extended period of time will tell you how awful and boring it is – after awhile you make your own recreation and everyone does something, right? The other way to look at this is to regulate part-time work and everyone gets a minimum take home pay. You can work for someone, you can work for yourself, or you can do volunteer work and everyone gets a minimum take home pay.

Housing. The social welfare system works fairly well with Drop In Centers, Halfway Houses, Mission Houses, Soup Kitchens, Food Banks, Welfare cheques, Subsidized and Low Cost, Coop Housing. I perceive one of the largest problems for poor people is affordable housing. There is low cost, subsidized or Coop housing with rent geared to income but the wait lists are very long, anywhere from 5 to 10 years. Instead of instituting low cost housing that is usually government funded, why not regulate the apartment rental market? The average Welfare recipient receives about $675 per month, at 25 - 30% of this for housing, this person should be paying no more than $150 per month for rent. The occasional apartment is $500 per month (3 rooms in Montreal) but more likely $600 or more. Is this person staying with friends? Sometimes people may discriminate against welfare recipients and may not rent to them. Are they staying in less expensive rooming houses? Even rooming houses will charge anywhere from $350 to $450 for a studio or a room with a kitchenette, sometimes the washrooms are shared. Why not regulate the rental market to charge for example, $150 per 100 square feet. If 2 people apply for the apartment, all things considered, the apartment goes to one that it is 25% of their income. So if someone with $675 per month and someone with $1,000 per month applies for a studio that is 100 square feet, all things considered it goes to the person with $675 per month. For the implementation of this policy it would have to be federal across the board so that one community did not become a center for immigrant welfare people.

This housing policy gives the truly poor and the working poor a break, would lessen the stress on Food Banks/Soup Kitchens/Drop Ins, may help get people off the streets and in general give the consumer more disposable cash, potentially feeding the economy.

With food, affordable shelter, suitable work, education, healthcare and friends and/or family and a happy love life the world becomes a place of wonderment. Better education and socialization with people sharing information, helping each other so people can follow their true callings, preventing violence rather than hanging people so that they become sex toy impresarios embroiled in suffering. Happier marriages and part-time work ensures that people have more time for their children, so no child would be left behind. No longer held down by old systems of violence and other people’s hidden agendas the world becomes livable, a place of dance, a freehold democracy. If people have issues with the inevitability of death or conflicted soul essence colours, they can come up with constructive ways to deal with angst (meditation, yoga, exercise, support groups, an arts calling, journaling etc.) and dialogue in nonviolent ways within a strong Community. There is no fear of a hidden violence construct, when everyone is better mentored and in a happy love relationship, the old pagan/geopolitical/revenge/power/violence construct ends. With less karmically impure people and more people in happy covenant marriages, there is less of an impetus for war and anyone inclined to violence could channel these instincts into a calling for work, an arts calling or exercise and release work, just letting off steam without hurting people. The military construct society that presumes schizophrenia has died. Ahmen.

The Way of Peace.

Joyeux Noel!
