  1. Truly one of the most sophisticated tools available.

  2. Hi, thank you for your work.. it is very interesting.

    You said “I am already feeling what has been recently termed solastalgia; a distress at the rapid diminishment of our biological environment. So, I will continue to nurture my land and replenish it as much as I can.”

    I’m wondering what your ideas are or if you have talked with Michael about how we can live in a way that nurtures the earth?

    I have been working towards this for many years now but have become confused about what our relationship with the earth is. I have even found that I have much anger towards the earth. It is my desire to have a nurturing relationship with the earth both wanting to feel nurtured by the earth and wanting to nurture the earth through my actions. I often find myself paralyzed in inaction because of my confusion over how things work.

  3. Steve, This is a fantastic article and addresses much of what we experienced. I was painfully aware of maybe 5 of the shifts you mentioned, particularly the last 3. I’ve had to do a lot of soul searching and re-calibration in the past 6 months to a year, essentially tossing out many of my previously held beliefs. Since I’m an Intellectually centered Scholar-Warrior in pragmatism and power, I felt the need to better understand the use of power during this time. You made reference to Neo Liberalist Economics as a driving force, and indeed it is. You can find more about the details of our current situation in a book called Post Capitalism by Paul Mason, available in Amazon in all formats: https://www.amazon.com/Postcapitalism-Guide-Future-Paul-Mason-ebook/dp/B011I42XQ0/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1481038911&sr=1-1&keywords=postcapitalism

    Also a book of essays called Technicity, also on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Technicity-Louis-Armand-ebook/dp/B00E20UFTU/ref=pd_sim_351_1?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00E20UFTU&pd_rd_r=PBQJAZ50J42JA3P48FH3&pd_rd_w=Rziz1&pd_rd_wg=liyZt&psc=1&refRID=PBQJAZ50J42JA3P48FH3

    I also discovered the philosopher, Bernard Stiegler and Symbolic Misery: Volume 1: The Hyperindustrial Epoch, which is quite amazing. This is from the Foreword of that book: “Our epoch is characterized by the seizure of the symbolic by industrial technology, where aesthetics has become both theatre and weapon in the economic war. This has resulted in a misery where conditioning substitutes for experience.” And this from Chapter 1: Aesthetics and Politics: “The problem of politics is one of knowing how to be together, to stand each other and stand together, across and starting from our singularities (much more profound than our ‘differences’) and beyond our conflicts of interest. Politics is the art of securing the unity of the state in its desire for a common future, in its individuation, its singularity as becoming one.” And then (excerpted) “the heart of the economy, of industry, and of politics, the sensible community is today entirely fabricated by technologies of what Deleuze called ‘control societies’ and it is essentially on this front that the international economic struggle is taking place.” The next 100 pages go further. Here is the Amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/Symbolic-Misery-1-Hyperindustrial-Epoch/dp/0745652654/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1481041749&sr=8-5&keywords=bernard+stiegler

    I found these references illuminating and if you can get through them, there are some profound ideas presented.

    Thanks for all you do for the Community, Steve. Your work is important.

  4. Yet another comment, regarding Neoliberalism, this from the book PostCapitalism: A Guide to Our Future by Paul Mason. From the Introduction:
    “Neoliberalism is the doctrine of uncontrolled markets: it says that the best route to prosperity is indivisuals pursuing their own self-interest, and the market is the only way to express that self-interest. It says the state should be small (except for its riot squad and secret police); that financial speculation is good; that inequality is good; that the natural state of humankind is to be a bunch of ruthless individuals, competing with each other. … Among the 1 percent, neoliberalism has the power of a religion: the more you practice it, the better you feel — and the richer you become.”

    We have turned words into symbols (as discussed by Bernard Stiegler in Symbolic Misery) but one of the most profound ironies of our age is the word Liberal: it is used as an epithet or an identification, but Neoliberal Economics has a very different meaning than the one used in our common culture.

  6. […] When we raise our vibration, we deal with the same issues in life, just in a more positive, optimistic way. When we raise our vibration, we are more likely to move in a harmonious flow, toward the answers we need and things we must heal. This is a great image, from theThe Michael Teaching […]

  7. I so LOVED the movie “Defending Your Life”!!!

  8. I thought those were awesome questions!! 🙂

  9. I feel a strong connection to the Warrior Role.

  10. I am brand new to this, but the asking he cards function on here, seems pretty enlightening. 🙂

  11. Hi There !!

    In using the law of attraction and creation, how can we work with timing in manifesting our wants for due dates in this plane? Understanding the personality doesn’t beat the negative drum and blow the whole manifestation.

  12. I didn’t know you were writing, Stephen. I am looking forward to this book.
