"Not on Our Watch"
June 2, 2019
Pop’s head got into a bit of a fog the previous night. It was part of his evolution, something that he had designed. He would slowly take himself out of any kind of societal programming when the time was right. His morning had been fantastic as was excited about his experience the previous day with Kma in Sedona and what came about as a result of that trip. He knew the time was right to begin advertising his Antichrist book since the show “Good Omens” came out, a fictitious story about angels, devils, and the Antichrist. He imagined it would bring a renewed curiosity about the end of times, the Antichrist, and 666. In the back of his mind, he still questioned where his wealth would come from. He and Kma only had so much in savings and it would run out soon. “Would it be from the sale of my Antichrist Poem?” he wondered. “Should I do something on Amazon to advertise it, should I change the cover or leave it like it is, should I not do anything with it the way I have for the last many years?” He finally decided to log into his Amazon book publishing account and advertise. He could choose automatic or manual advertising. He read a note that said “if you’re not quite sure what to do at this point with key words, then choose automatic.” He chose automatic and a budget of $10 per day until June 10, only for 9 days. If he saw that it was having some effect, then we would budget more; this was just play money. Nevertheless, the whole process, even though it only took a couple of hours, was cumbersome to him and loaded his mind with a firestorm of questions and along with doubt about the future; it was enough to put him in a fog, almost as if he was going to have his wealth flow to him solely by his own efforts, something he had been used to for much of his 50+ years.
He was learning to let go and trust the process, the Universe, God. He knew that he didn’t like the process of trying to figure out marketing. It wasn’t in his Genius and he didn’t have the time. The flow of income would come in a more easy and natural process. He realized that he was finding his NB or Neutral Buoyancy, in his 3D reality, it was an adjustment that he had to make on a daily basis; it was always a matter of finding out what worked and what didn’t. He found that marketing himself didn’t work. He had at least told himself many times that he wanted his readers to be naturally attracted to the writing, and if they weren’t that was okay. He wanted his writing to be spread by word of mouth, not because it had been hyped up on the Internet or some other mass advertising campaign. He and Kma had set themselves up as “Guinea Pig We,” a phrase derived from Buckminister Fuller’s “Guinea Pig B.” He had set out to experiment to see what would happen if he devoted all of his time and resources to serving humanity. Pops and Kma bought a year of time to be able to do this, just to see what would happen.
Before going to sleep that night, Pops could tell his mind was in some kind of fog. He asked his guides for help get out of it. He wished he could find the right thought or action to snap out of it, but he hadn’t yet found the magic words or actions; he did know that this was something that could be cured by his morning meditation and so he went to bed happily anticipating his three hour morning mediation routine that would always bring him back to his Neutral Buoyancy state.
What he really enjoyed after his writing was reading Williamson’s “A Politics of Love.” Her book is exactly what he had been waiting for, looking for, wanting to see as change in the world. She made him think more deeply about his actions. She wrote:
“The Grimke sisters took a huge personal journey that is relevant to our own day. Being antislavery in nineteenth-century America would have meant not agreeing with slavery, with practicing it oneself. It might have meant not living in a slave-owning state. But being antislavery, in and of itself, did not necessarily move the needle for one slave. A huge internal bridge was crossed – psychologically, emotionally, and spiritually – when one went from being antislavery to being an abolitionist. It meant going from “I don’t agree with it” to “Not on my watch.”
This resonated with Pops because he likened it to a Roger Hamilton analogy of a football game. There are the players on the field playing the game, and then there are those who only watch. They can scream and shout all they want, but they are not playing the game. As he thought about this analogy, he thought that the game of football is limited to only a certain select few who excel at what they do; very few spots are open, however, Roger created the 2030 World Game where everyone can play. Everyone can go on the football field and take a stand. At one end of the field is fear and at the other it is love. Pops wondered about the people of his generation, “Will they say, “Not on my watch? Will they come down from the bleachers and out of their arm chairs, put on some gloves and help to take the trash out of the ocean?
Williamson continues, “A politics of love, then, takes a stand. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.” This line and the Neutral Buoyancy concept helped Pops evolve to a state where he saw the importance of taking sides. He realized that he could still find his NB in the 3D reality while taking sides. If he didn’t take sides, he would feel regret. He didn’t like that feeling and so he was ready to strike while the iron was hot.
Pops lamented over the weakened state of democracy his beautiful country had fallen into. The concept of a democracy is beautiful but has many inherent difficulties. The idea of a democracy is that the country is ruled by the majority of the people, generally assuming that they all want to live by the Golden Rule. The difficulty is in determining who the majority are. This was the idea for different political platforms. Each platform is supposed to represent a set of policies and/or stances on issues. The stances that the majority of the people like win the election, but these platforms can be very decisive and cause more separation rather than unity amongst all. While the idea of a public servant is nice, the public servants don’t have the time to ask the majority on every decision that is made. The majority have to trust that the person they elect has their best interests in mind, that he or she is helping to create the kind of planet that they want their children and grandchildren to inherit. Pops understood this from his years of working as a school principal. For a leader, having the majority to make the decision is much easier. If there was disagreement with a policy, all he would have to do is say, "Look, I’m just doing what the majority told me to do.” He or she would never have to take any blame for the “wrong decision,” the blame would fall on the majority. Pops learned that there simply isn’t time to communicate the process, information, benefits, pros and cons with every decision that comes up during the day. The majority at a school could for big items, like the school calendar, books, schedule, important policies, but every day decisions were up to him, like whether or not they should use company A or B for cleaning the carpets, providing a janitorial service, using a particular internet provider, or deciding if a boy really did or didn’t hit a girl. Lack of time was the biggest barrier to getting a majority vote on issues. If they had more time, then all questions could be discussed and decided upon together. Teacher were already busy enough and usually exhausted at the end of the day. They had to prepare lessons, correct homework, and imagine the best way to interact with each student in the class. They didn’t have time to meet before or after school for one or two hours to hear what the principal was dealing with all day long. As principal, Pops was especially thankful to his school board because they were responsible for making sure there was enough money in the bank each month for all the expenses. If this had also been one of his responsibilities, it would have taken tremendous time away which he needed to helping facilitate the best teaching experience for teachers and thus the best learning experience for students. In the same way, Pops had to rely on his team, he understood that the President has to do the same.
Pops worked at an Islamic school in the prestigious town of Bellevue, Washington, just east of Seattle over the floating bridge on the I-90 or 520. The City of Bellevue and its neighboring city Redmond hosted some of the finest tech companies in the world like Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Boeing, Expedia, T-Mobile, Salesforce, and many others. He at one time was an extreme practicing Muslim, Catholic, Buddhist, and Non-Denominational Christian. He had learned a lot from these religions and knew they had a lot to offer. Was Pops a Muslim, Christian, Hindu, or Jew? He considered himself a “Student of Life,” which he called, ‘SOL.’ Pops likened himself to a curious octopus. He wanted to explore every inch of his 3D reality, not just the physical landscape, but also the consciousness, the beliefs that make up each person’s reality. Like the octopus who saw the dolphins disappearing for a couple of seconds out of the top of the water and reentering in a different location, Pops would seek others who seemed to have taken a brief jump out of the common 3D reality and gotten a glimpse of life above the ‘Known” barrier. They would tell him about the adventures they went on and what they learned, and so Pops went on a daily three hour adventure in early morning hours while most people were asleep inside and the stars were awake outside.
As Pops and Kma continued to explore both the 3D and 5th dimensions, they would find other travelers who caught glimpses and they listened to them with great intensity. They wanted to know where and what they saw and what adjustments they had to make to their human body and mind technology to see what they saw. It was on a daily basis that they made subtle adjustments to their human equipment to find the most ideal NB point while living in the 3D. When Williamson came along and described the politics of love as taking a stand, then it all made sense to him. It rang true. Pops and Kma would say, “Not on our watch,” not only for themselves, for their own consciousness, but for the generations for the next 1,000 years and beyond. They were adjusting their NB to take them to beautiful and wondrous locations they had never seen before. They were finding love and a new kind of open consensus reality.
Pops imagined democracy 300 years into the future. He knew it was currently falling apart. The founding fathers never imagined mass media, the flood of information, half-truths, the cult of personality, the negative effects of special interests, and an attitude that would keep people home on the day of elections. They did design, however, an open system that could be made even better, as Jefferson stated. The problem he realized was in determining the will of the people on the big topics because the desires of the people became clouded in their perception of political parties and personalities that were paved with good intentions.
If Pops were running for president, in his stump speech he would say, “I come to you as an average American. My parents never had the opportunity to go to college, travel to foreign lands, experience new peoples, religions, and mysterious plant medicines, but I have and because I have I gained a better understanding of the world that we all live in, I hold a vision of hundreds of perspectives, and the perspective that that majority holds is one of the infinite. We have found the ride to the infinite to be the most enjoyable rides of our life time and we only wish for all of you to experience joy no matter what road you take.
Our forefathers fled many countries to come to America, the land of freedom, to escape something that was missing in their own country. They had to have a good reason to come to leave family and friends behind. I am only here to speak the truth that I have learned. First, I want to say, that I will do everything I can to support the majority of people in this country. If there is a more qualified man or woman, then I would gladly support him or her. What I am doing today is asking you to shed all of your identities for 10 minutes. For this 10 minutes, imagine that you are only American Humans. You are not democrat, republican or any political organization. You are not any religious denomination or sexual orientation. You are human. Now, imagine just one issue, Clean Oceans, of the twelve 2320 Global Goals. You have all seen pictures of trash on the beach, millions of tons of trash floating around in our oceans, and pictures of sea animals dying because of plastic waste. Can I ask who amongst you, as a human on this Spaceship Mother Earth, where we are all connected, would agree that keeping the Oceans clean is a good thing?” Pops would wait for hands to go up in the air. As he looked from his left to his right side of vision, he saw what looked like 100% of the people having their hands up, he would say, now look at everyone. See what you all desire. Don’t you see the kind of planet you want to live on? Have you seen the videos of the people wanting to take care of the world? Now, the more difficult question; How many of you are ready to roll up your sleeves and clean the ocean? As Pops glanced side to side, it looked like 100% again. “We need all of you today to take an action. Take a stand. Make a decision. Do it for yourself. Do it for the future generations. Just do something. It’s no longer a point to talk about it. We don’t want to hear a lot of nice words. We want to see action. You don’t even have to put it in writing or post it on the internet, just help to make our planet a better place.
This was only one issue. What we must do as a modern democracy is to list all the major issues. We must decide where we stand on these issues so that we can inform our public servants what we expect. When all of you raised your hands and said that you wanted clean oceans, at that moment it didn’t matter who the president was, the political affiliation of your political party, your favorite presidential candidate, your neighbor’s sexual orientation, or the color of their skin. Do this with all the issues and you will see what the majority wants. And very importantly, for each issue, find out the concerns of the minority and address those. Know that you will be both a minority and majority. You may be a minority when you stand for reopening the Black Thunder coal mine in Wyoming, but you may be in the majority when you stand for lowering the voting age to 16. For each issue, examine and listen to both sides. This is how you evolve as an individual and nation.
Now, according to the polls, it looks like I may lose this election, but I only want to remind you that you are a democracy in the land of freedom. The least of all actions for you to take, is to go to the polls and cast your vote. As a majority, you have tremendous power and influence. Use it to heal the world. As I leave you today, I would like to quote Williamson as written three hundred years ago. These words still ring true today.
‘….Humanity stands at a crossroads now: will we serve only the dictates of our material selves, or will we rise to the full embrace of our spiritual selves? There will be consequences either way.
A world unaligned with the ways of our spiritual nature has begun to fall apart because anything unaligned with the ways of our higher nature inevitably falls apart. The mind unaligned with love becomes aligned with fear, and fear now threatens to overtake our planet. We are challenged to regain spiritual balance, both in ourselves and in our world.”
To do so is our purpose on Earth, and it is our only sustainable option.’ (p. 93 A Politics of Love)
Thank you and God Bless America.”
We must continue to carry the torch of the 2030 generation and remember to align ourselves with love and in doing so “We will shine, as the children of God do.”
The previous day, Pops had posted a two minute video on their website, 2030news.one; it was produced by the news outlet, The Guardian. It showed contrasting speaking styles between U.S. President Donald Trump and New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. As Pops was going to bed and when he woke up in the morning, this video had been on his mind, “Wait! What did Trump say?” This question was going through his mind. He knew that he had to watch it again, something wasn’t right.
Trump stated, “America is governed by Americans. We reject the ideology of Globalism and we embrace the doctrine of patriotism.” Pops was stunned. “Did he just say we reject the ideology of Globalism? What does he mean by Globalism? Pops wondered if Trump also rejected the idea of the Global Goals. “Was there a vote on Globalism in America that he missed? Pops wondered. If there was such a vote, he wouldn’t miss the next one. He couldn’t believe Trump’s use of ‘We’. Pops and Kma were Americans, well-educated, and well-traveled. They were proud to be Americans, but not proud of this statement that Trump stated on behalf of all Americans. He did not make this statement on their behalf. He wondered if he and Kma were the only ones in the minority. He wondered how Trump came to the conclusion that the majority felt this way. Were the majority of Americans afraid of the rest of the world? Pops was deeply disturbed. He then watched Prime Ministers Ardern’s point of view. She said, “In the face of isolationism, protectionism, racism, the simple concept of looking outwardly and beyond ourselves, of kindness and collectivism might just be as good a starting point as any.” Pops watched the remainder of her speech and thought, “I want someone as a public servant like that representing us.” The day before he had watched a couple other videos of Prime Minister Ardern. One video shows her coming back from maternity leave while she was in office. In that video and a couple of others, she talks about her partner. Pops wondered if Americans would be ready to have someone in office and talk openly about his or her partner rather than a traditional wife or husband. Pops wondered when Americans could move beyond sexism and take an outward look to the world and work together so that all would thrive.
Pops had been deeply religious ever since he was a little boy. He remember a time when he was only four years old and accompanied his father to their Catholic Church service. When they returned from the mass, he was honored when his father explained to his mother how well-behaved he was in church. “He followed along with everyone, kneeling and standing up at all the right times and listening to the priest.” Later when he was in high school, he considered becoming a priest until he met his first real girlfriend and fell in love. He knew then he could never be a priest, but while going to San Diego State University in California, he discovered non-denominational Christianity and a group called Campus Crusade for Christ. He joined their meetings and participated in worshiping God. He found out that pastors of these non-denominational churches can get married and so he thought his path was set. He changed his major from business to speech communication and after he received his BA, he would continue on to a school of Theology. However, the more he studied Christianity, the more he found himself caught up in judgement of others, it was too overwhelming for him and so he set aside modern interpretations of what Jesus had said. Pops didn’t give up on Christians, he instead looked for different interpretations of Jesus’ teachings. He explored Buddhism and was set to go to Japan to teach English to learn more about it, but he found that while he enjoyed what Buddhism teaught, he thought it was unfortunate that those who have found inner peace stay at home or in the monasteries while the world falls apart in front of them. He then came across Islam. Islam means peace. He studied Islam intensely for almost 20 years. To get a first-hand experience of Islam, he traveled to the Middle East to teach English and learn more about it. He lived and worked in the Middle East for 12 years in the countries of Saudi Arabia, Oman, The United Arab Emirates, Syria, and Kuwait. He made many friends while there and had the opportunity to go to Mecca and participate in the Hajj ceremonies. After the alleged terrorist attack of 9/11, things feel apart for the World Muslim communities. Pops again found himself caught up in judgement of others while study modern interpretations of Islam. In Truth, Pops didn’t know what God thought. How could he judge others when he didn’t know how God would judge? The only person in the whole world that he could judge was himself. After much internal reflection, Pops looked at all he had done with his life, all the actions he had taken, both good and bad. He had learned from his mistakes and continued to learn. In Islam there is a saying that God created 100 parts of Mercy and in doing so, he gave one part to man and kept 99 for himself. Pops, after much contemplation, forgave himself knowing that God is much greater than him and that God retained the other 99 parts of Mercy. As a student of life, Pops continued to study all religions and philosophies for any nugget of truth that would take him to a higher level that would aid in the understanding of the nature of reality.
He studied many new age philosophies and learned a lot. Pops always felt like he was on a journey by himself. He longed to find a guru, someone with a proven track record of practicing what he teaches. He wanted to find someone who would incorporate all aspects of life but he was never lucky enough to find that teacher, until he read Williamson and “A Politics of Love.” He knew that he had found what he was looking for and was going to do everything he could to learn from her. He felt that the world was moving into a direction of love not only for mother Earth, but for each other. It was a time to escape from the dictatorship of a few and into a new era where the decisions are made by the majority, the concerns of the minority are heard and acted upon, and most importantly each and every individual is able to find the Love and Mercy within. Williamson Quotes his His Holiness the Dalai Lama, “In order to save the world, we must have a plan. But no plan will work unless we meditate.”
This prompted Pops to come up with the titles for his new books. The first one is called “27 days of Me and C.” The 27 days start with the beginning of each new moon and the countdown of each day begins at day 27. Each day the title of book morphs:
Day 1: 27 Days of Me and C (1 minute exercise. Set a timer. Take a deep breath, quiet your mind and ask yourself, “Who am I?” What answer(s) did you get. You don’t have to write down your answer. It could change next month or in 5 years.
Day 2: 27 Days of Med and C (2 minute exercise. Set a timer. Take a deep breath in and out, quiet your mind and ask yourself, “Why am I on the planet at this time?”)
Day 3: 27 Days of Medi and C,
Day 9: 27 Days of Meditation and Contemplation
Day 27 : 27 Days of Meditation and Contemplation (27 minutes. Set a timer. Sit quietly. Take three slow deep breaths in and breath out slowly. Imagine a large root shooting out of your body down to the core of Mother Earth and feel yourself connected to her consciousness. Put your attention at your third eye and imagine it opening up. Breathe slowly for 15 minutes. Monitor your thoughts. Can you eliminate all thoughts and find peace within? After the 15 minutes, imagine the kind of world you would want to live in. Among all the Earthlings, what person or idea is a hero to you. Imagine more people like the hero you chose. Who would be next?
This would be followed by a 90 and 180 day workbooks called “90 Days of Me and C” and “180 Days of Me and C” respectively, with the latter culminating in a minimum of 90 minutes of meditation each day.
Pops completed his three hours of meditation. The brain fog that he started with had cleared and it became clear to him that he found his guru, but only this time his guru was not sitting and talking from on high, but rather working side by side with others embodying the teachings she had studied and used to effectively work with others for over 30 years. Pops thought, “Although I may never meet my guru, I will be working side by side with her because I have imagined, and I have felt and seen the return to love happen on our watch.”
