2004 U.S. Election

November 2004    

  Dear Ones,


Many of you have asked me in recent days "What is the meaning of the U.S. election? Was this supposed to happen? Is it true? Is there a reason for this?"

I have struggled within myself to produce a meaningful answer that goes beyond conventional wisdom,
" This was meant to be. There must be a reason for this."

The reason is us. But what is it about us/U.S.?

I am reminded of several metaphysical moments in history that illumine the period we are about to go through.
One was during the Revolutionary War in America when an angel appeared to General George Washington.
The angel explained the future struggle and triumphs of America.
The other was in Germany in 1922 as the Nazi Party was rising to power.

I summarize both, and provide documentation at the bottom of this letter.
During the Revolutionary War, Native American Indians, British colonists, and British soldiers, witnessed bullets fired at George Washington at close range. At the last moment, the bullets abruptly veered away. An angel appeared to Washington to confirm that he was chosen to lead the birth of the New Republic, the United States of America. Without the intervention of God, the angel explained, the new nation would not be born. The American colonists, the angel said, were many times outmanned, outgunned, and outmaneuvered. The American colonists didn't even have shoes, much less guns!

But, the angel cautioned, the New Republic would be challenged three times before the nation
would become a beacon of light and freedom for the rest of the world.
The first time would be the Revolutionary War. The second would be the Civil War.
The third test, the angel said, would come when the nation would be attacked on her own soil in the early 2000s. America would not prevail until Americans remembered that God created the nation, and that God - not a person, money, or military action - would preserve it. When that lesson was realized - that God is determining the destiny of this nation - then, and only then, would the nation's final struggle be concluded.

I am also reminded of a group of spiritual seekers in Germany in the 1920s. Members of the group saw the rise of the Nazi party through contact with the astral world. This group of spiritual seekers, led by Rudolf Steiner, meditated and sent light to the leaders of the Nazi party. One by one, the members of the group disappeared and were killed. In a morning meditation in 1922, Rudolf Steiner foresaw his own death, to occur later that day, in the Munich train station, by members of the Nazi party. He left for the train station nonetheless. Meanwhile, his friends learned of the murder plot, and rushed to the train station to prevent him from boarding the train on which he was to be killed. They whisked him off to Switzerland, thus preventing his untimely death. Steiner continued his metaphysical work in Dornach, Switzerland, where the Goertheneum was built. Needless to say, the light work of Steiner and his associates was not immediately felt, nor was it successful in stopping the rise of the Nazi party, World War II, or the Holocaust. But there is more to the story.

In 1938, Adolf Hitler raided the Treasure House of the Hofburg (Hapsburg Palace) in Vienna, Austria, and took the Spear of Longinus. This is the spear used by the Roman soldier, Gaius Cassius Longinus, to pierce the side of Jesus Christ after the Crucifixion. Hitler, who long studied black magic, knew of the occult power of the spear, and believed it would best serve him. Using the Christ energy in the spear to malefic ends, he quickly rose to power.

An American soldier discovered the hidden spear in Nuremburg, Germany, in 1945, and took possession of it. (It has since been returned to the Hofburg in Vienna, Austria.) Within hours of the discovery of the spear, light began to return to the planet, and Hitler committed suicide in Berlin.

Where did this light come from? As if held in abeyance, light invoked by prayer and meditation done by many spiritual seekers across the planet slowly built over time, and when it was strong enough, suddenly poured back in. The light of Spirit, symbolically held in the spear, was symbolically taken out of the hands of someone who was using the energy of Spirit in a negative way, and fell into the hands of a power that was using the energy of Spirit in a positive way - at the time.

We have entered a similar period of darkness, where God, freedom, and justice are being used to justify killing and destruction in the Middle East. A high degree of confusion and inability to see the light has afflicted many people. Whether you are a Republican or a Democrat, pro-war or anti-war, you can perceive darkness on the planet. As this is being written, in fact, investigations have been called by members of Congress to address voting and ethical inequities.

Many people say there is nothing we can do. But there is something we can do. Just as spiritual seekers built up light in a "spiritual bank account" during World War II, we can do the same. We can meditate. We can pray. We can be kind to each other. We can help each other. We can be loving to each other. Each of these small acts brings more light to the planet. No matter what your party affiliation, think about others. Consider their needs as your own. Be honest. Give what you can, even if it's a listening ear or understanding. Try to see things from another's viewpoint. Even if you see others acting in their own interests and not thinking of you, do not do the same. You cannot fight dark with dark because it will only create more darkness. Invest in your spiritual bank account. Make as many positive contributions as you can. Like the spiritual seekers who prayed and meditated during World War II, we may not see the results immediately. But the effects are mathematical. Eventually enough light will accumulate to shine on the dark emerging on the planet.

It is a law of physics that every action has an equal reaction. Surely sending love will bring better results than sending missiles and tanks. Instead of waging a war (which only begets more war), why don't we wage a campaign of prayer? We might be surprised at what comes back to us.


Many blessings for love & light,

Laurie

The "Vision of General McClellan" is excerpted from "The Secret Destiny of America,"
by Manly P. Hall, Philosophical Research Society, Los Angeles.

General George Washington appeared to General McClellan, of the Union forces, during the Civil War. Washington related to McClellan the words of the angel who had delivered the prophesy for America to him. Washington's vision has been documented many times. The following is an interesting perspective.

Reported in Portland (Maine) Evening Courier on March 8, 1862:

"As he (McClellan) looked up, he saw the movements of the various troops and regiments, and a complete pattern of the enemy's lines. Then his elation changed to great apprehension, he saw the enemy's forces moving to certain points which he himself had intended to occupy within the next few days. He realized his plans were known to the enemy.

"You have been betrayed," a voice spoke from within a luminous light. "And had God not willed otherwise, ere the sun of tomorrow had set the Confederate (the Southern) flag would have waved above the Capitol and your own grave."

"His pencil moved with the speed of thought, McClellan transferred the troop positions from the living map to the paper map on his desk. McClellan became aware that the figure staying near him had increased in light and he looked into the face of George Washington.


(George Washington speaks:)
"While yet in the flesh, I (George Washington) beheld the birth of the American Republic. It was indeed a hard and bloody one, but God's blessing was upon the nation, and therefore, through this, her first great struggle for existence, He sustained her and with His mighty hand brought her out triumphantly. A century has not passed since then, and yet the child Republic has taken her position of peer with nations whose pages of history extend for ages into the past. She has, since those dark days, by the favor of GOD, greatly prospered. And now, by very reason of this prosperity, has she been brought to her second great struggle. This is by far the most perilous ordeal she has to endure; passing as she is from childhood to opening maturity, she is called on to accomplish that vast result, self-conquest (as is done in the maturation process of all Great Souls); to learn that important lesson, self-control, self-rule, that in the future will place her in the van of power and civilization.


"But her mission will not then be finished; fore ere another century shall have gone by, the oppressors of the whole earth, hating and envying her exaltation, shall join themselves together and raise up their hands against her. But if she still be found worthy of her high calling they shall surely be discomfited, and then will be ended her third and last great struggle for existence. Thenceforth shall the Republic go on, increasing in power and goodness, until her borders shall end only in the remotest corners of the earth, and the whole earth shall beneath her sheltering wing become a Universal Republic. Let her in her prosperity, however, remember the Lord her God, her trust be always in Him, and she shall never be confounded."
