HUGE, HISTORICAL BREAKTHROUGH.

ICELAND, THE FIRST COUNTRY TO DEFAULT ON THE BANKSTER ENGINEERED FRACTIONAL RESERVE BANKING DEBT, THE FIRST COUNTRY TO PUT A BANKER IN JAIL, IS NOW ALSO GOING TO BE THE FIRST COUNTRY IN MODERN WESTERN HISTORY TO END THE PRIVATE CREATION OF MONEY AND SWITCH TO SOVEREIGN MONEY.

THIS BLOG HAS ARGUED FOR A LONG TIME THAT TAKING BACK CONTROL OF MONEY CREATION FROM PRIVATE BANKS WILL BRING PROSPERITY AND STABILITY.

A report, commissioned by Prime Minister Sigmundur Davíð Gunnlaugsson, outlining the need for a fundamental reform of Iceland’s monetary system, was published today by Progressive Party MP and chair of the Alþingi parliament’s Committee for Economic Affairs and Trade Frosti Sigurjónsson.

The report considers the extent to which Iceland’s history of economic instability has been driven by the ability of banks to ‘create money’ in the process of lending.

“I am very pleased to receive this new report on monetary reform. The findings will be an important contribution to the upcoming discussion, here and elsewhere, on money creation and monetary policy,” the PM commented in a press release.

“Iceland, being a sovereign state with an independent currency, is free to abandon the present unstable fractional reserves system and implement a better monetary system,” Frosti maintained, adding, “Such an initiative must however rest on further study of the alternatives and a widespread consensus on the urgency for reform.”

The foreword to the report was written by Lord Adair Turner, former chairman of the UK Financial Services Authority and chair of the policy development committee of the international Financial Stability Board.

Lord Turner stated that the efforts to make the existing financial system more stable had “still failed to address the fundamental issue—the ability of banks to create credit, money and purchasing power, and the instability which inevitably follows. As a result, the reforms agreed to date still leave the world dangerously vulnerable to future financial and economic instability.”

The Icelandic economy has struggled with inflation and unstable exchange rates. Iceland also suffered one of the costliest banking crises in history, the press release stated.

The report describes how commercial banks in Iceland created far more money than was needed for economic growth and how the Central Bank failed to bring the money supply under control using conventional means.

The report considers various reform proposals and concludes that the Sovereign Money proposal could provide a sound basis for effective reform in Iceland.

According to the Sovereign Money proposal, the state-owned Central Bank would become the only creator of money in the economy. Furthermore, the power to allocate money would be separated from the power to create new money.

The Central Bank would handle creation of money while the parliament would vote on how new money is allocated. The proposal aims to reduce the risk and instability of the monetary system, reduce debts substantially and direct the income from creating money to the state instead of commercial banks.

It is pointed out that further study is needed before Iceland can decide whether to take steps to implement reforms based on a ‘sovereign money’ system.

The blessing of the animals

April 13, 2015

Today, a stunningly beautiful, warm day, I witnessed the blessing of the animals as part of the Orthodox Easter celebrations. A priest blessed all the horses, cows, sheep, goats, dogs, chicken and rabbits as well as the bees in a very sweet ceremony, reminding us that God created every creature and loves every one. Surprisingly (?), many animals gathered around and listened to the main service held in a stable.


The Holy Fire Ceremony of Orthodox Christians reminds us we are spirit

April 13, 2015

Orthodox Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ with a Holy Fire ceremony. The Holy Flame emanates miraculously from inside the tomb of Jesus Christ in Jerusalem on Holy Saturday. Clergy and pilgrims light their candles from the flame. The Holy Fire is then transported by plane to Orthodox countries, Greece, Russia and Serbia. From the airport, it travels to every church in those countries and the Holy Fire lights the candles of all the people in attendance.

We are all little sparks of Holy Fire. Only we have mostly forgotten it. To show us that we are in essence spiritual fire, and that the spirit is much more powerful than matter, Jesus Christ resurrected from phyical death and came among his disciples as a spiritual body. Jesus Christ invites us all to follow him on the spiritual path to attain heaven and eternal life.

“Yesterday I was crucified with Him; today I am glorified with Him; yesterday I died with Him; today I am quickened with Him; yesterday I was buried with Him; today I rise with Him. But let us offer to Him Who suffered and rose again for us— you will think perhaps that I am going to say gold, or silver, or woven work or transparent and costly stones, the mere passing material of earth, that remains here below, and is for the most part always possessed by bad men, slaves of the world and of the Prince of the world. Let us offer ourselves, the possession most precious to God, and most fitting; let us give back to the Image what is made after the Image. Let us recognize our Dignity; let us honour our Archetype; let us know the power of the Mystery, and for what Christ died.”
St. Gregory the Theologian – Homily on Pascha


Dr Mary Neal says going to “heaven” helped her grasp what the true purpose of life is

April 11, 2015

Orthopedic surgeon Dr Mary Neal returned from a near death experience of heaven unhappy to be back on earth. Desperate, she opened a Bible in the hospital where she was recovering from injuries sustained during a Kayaking accident. Her eyes fell on a verse calling for people “to pray without ceasing.”

That verse resonated with her. She had gone to another place exploding with beauty and colour and love of God, and had been overwhelmed, strangely enough, by the sensation of being home, of being where she really belonged. Now she was back in “this world, a street where a funeral is passing,” as Rumi might have said. She wanted to go back to that other place where “a wealth you cannot imagine flows through you,” (Rumi), and pray without ceasing seemed a way back.

Exactly that verse appears in the opening chapter of The Way of a Pilgrim, a treasure of Orthodox Christian spirituality, believed to have been written down in a monastery in Mount Athos.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Way_of_a_Pilgrim

The narrator, a pilgrim from Russia, would like to pray without ceasing, pray all the time without any interruption, be in constant contact with the life, force and power of the spirit. Yet, he cannot imagine how he can ever do such a thing. There are so many practical chores to get through every day just to survive. There are so many pressures from society.

Eventually, he finds a spiritual father who teaches him the Jesus prayer. His life is transformed. He learns to pray the Jesus prayer all the time no matter what he might be doing or whereever he might be.

You can read an excerpt here:
http://www.holycrossyakima.org/orthodoxPdfs/UnceasingPrayer-WayOfPilgrim.pdf

The full text in antiquated, obscure English is here
http://desertfathers.webs.com/thewayofthepilgrim.htm

The Jesus prayer is not an intelletual activity, but an activity of the heart or the intuitive faculty of the spirit in the heart, and has often been compared to a mantra.

As the pilgrim learns to say the Jesus prayer without ceasing, his life is transformed. He is in heaven while walking around in Russia in absolute poverty and without even a home to call his own because he is in constant communiciction with “secret places inside this violent world where we make transaction with beauty,” (Rumi). He says the Jesus prayer and “every second a voice of love comes from every side,” (Rumi). The Jesus prayer became more valuable and sweet to him than anything in the world, he wrote. It filled him with love, light, comforted him, inspired him and helped him in every situation including encounters with the bitter Russian cold and wolves.

Someone asked Dr Mary Neal, who was not an especially religious person but who had a vivid experience of the personal love of Jesus Christ during her near death experience, what her encounter with heaven had revealed about the purpose of our life on earth and how we can carry that purpse out.

Interestingly, she answered the purpose of life was being in constant prayer, in constant communication with God. The purpose was listening and being willing to say, yes, to whatever she is supposed to be doing, which is some act of service, different for each person.


She said she found it hard to pray formally, but a part of her brain is always listening and questioning, trusting in God, trying to stay open and reamin willing to say, yes. Saying, yes to God s plan for our lives is the hardest part, she said. Often we reject a plan to help others for lots of reasons, such as not enough money, time or ability. But when we do say, yes, to God s purpose for our lives, the resources, time and ability appear. God gives them, she said.
So, if we want to enter heaven, the presence of God, the “calm in the midst of lightnings” (Rumi), there is a way.

It is called the Jesus Prayer.

On Mount Athos and other monasteries in Greece, many monks and nuns practise saying the Jesus Prayer always.
We can call on the powerful name of Jesus Christ in the knowledge that he knows all our suffering, pain and problems, including the worst kind of betrayal, isolation, humiliation, abandonment and death. But he overcame them all in the resurrection and is with us all the time, helping us on our way.

Mary Neal said coming to understand the incredible love God has for each one of us, and the reality of an after life has transformed her life.

I pray this Holy Saturday, the day after Good Friday, in the Greek Orthodox church, we, frail human beings all over the world, come to understand Your great love for us, Lord Jesus Christ, and the great comfort of remaining in constant contact with You in pray.

This evening in Greece, as people prepare to go to church to celebrate Easter Sunday, many burdened with incredible difficulties because of the bankster engineered financial crisis, I pray that Greece may be resurrected to a new flourishing life by Your spirit and power, Jesus Christ! Amen.


We are eternal spiritual beings, say doctors who had a near death experience

April 10, 2015

“Get up. Let s leave this place. The enemy brought you here, led you out from earthly paradise. I will not only bring you back to that paradise: I will enthrone you in heaven.”

Resurrection

We are eternal spiritual beings. Jesus Christ illustrated this by his voluntary physical death in the crucifiction, remembered on Good Friday, which is celebrated today in Orthodox countries.

Although Jesus Christ’s physical body was killed on the cross, his divine, spiritual essence lived on, opening a door, a path, a knowledge, an understanding for all of us to return to a place of tremendous beauty, peace, love, called heaven.

We live in an amazing era. Amazing is the way we can now access on the internet and elsewhere tens of thousands of near death experiences confirming that we really are eternal spiritual beings.

Neurosurgeon Dr Eben Alexander, for example, has written bestselling books and given many talks about his experience of heaven when he was clinically dead from a virulent bacterial brain infection.

Orthopedic surgeon Dr Mary Neal has described her experience of dying and going to heaven in many videos and in her book.

By contrast, Howard Storm gives an account of how he died and went to hell. In this terrible place, he realized he was just receiving the cruelty, brutality and selfishness, he had himself shown to people on this earth.

Eben Alexander says his transforming experience taught him that the whole purpose of our life is to learn greater love, compassion, understanding and ascend to the divine. We learn love  in the afterlife by feeling the impact of our actions on others infinitely multiplied, he says. In short, we reap what we sow. That is why it is so important for us to live consciously, making conscious choices to do what is good, right and true in this world. Every moment, we are choosing heaven or hell.

There are many who have not read the Gospels. I urge people to look at them in a new light.  They contain incredible spiritual power and profound truths which science is now confirming.
