The Living Force
Thanks for a great session. Much to think about and a lot of work to do to get prepared, as well as spreading awareness of EE.
No time to waste.

A: More or less, but remember that some consciousnesses "weigh" more than others. Also recall that "His eye is on the sparrow." While it may seem grim from your perspective, even you care about your smallest parts.
I looked it up here and it's from a hymn based on some Bible verses. It means that God/DCM cares for even the smallest parts I think.
Wishing everyone the best of health, we know we're going to need it!
God looks at sparrows, animal life, and the whole created order with a different eye than we do. God values the created order differently. It was not God who placed the value of sparrows at half-a-cent. Who among us takes notice if a sparrow falls to the ground or a squirrel drops from a tree or the polluted streams kill the fish or toxins cause birds to have thin-shelled eggs that crack too soon? Who really cares? On the scale of human values they're insignificant. But, what did Jesus say about how God looks at those parts of creation, which are of little human value? Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father. God notices, cares, and values what humans consider of least value in the created order! The tiniest of birds does not come to the end of its life and drop from the sky without the awareness and consent of God. The Creator of billions of spinning stars, planets, and galaxies has an eye on the tiny sparrow.

The coming changes are pretty much what my gut and dreams are warning me about....but I doubt very much Hubby and I will be able to leave the country anytime soon, if at all.
Yeah, me either. I'm stuck in this ticking time-bomb too.
I'll just have to stay on my toes and hope for the best.
2135-1For it IS the law of love, of hope, of patience, of longsuffering, of kindness, of gentleness, that WILL succeed, that WILL bring its fruit in due season.
For He is mindful of the sparrow. How much more, then, is He mindful of His children, His companions that He would have as a portion of His very SELF?
Yes, we have the entity and those relations with the universe and universal forces, as are latent and exhibited in the personality of the present entity, .
In entering this present experience, as we find, the entity comes under the astrological influence of Mercury - afflicted with Saturn; Jupiter and Venus, also affliction in Saturn - with a benevolent influence in Uranus and Neptune. These, as we find, have made in this present experience rather unusual circumstances in the life of the entity. With the high mental development, with the aptitudes as experienced in the early portion of gathering from the associations, surroundings and studies, much of a nature that made for the entity an exceptional body among groups and individuals, in its social and its mental and material life. In the changes brought, there has come the fear of the conditions in the financial position, as well as bounty in these directions. As a promise in the associations in the filial and home life, as well as those that have brought heartaches, yearnings and longings that have reached in the PRESENT circumstances, conditions and surroundings, that as of almost unbearable conditions. As has been seen, as will be experienced by the entity through those activities of the body-mental, the soul development of the entity, these in MANY ways HAVE been, were, necessary - that there be the proper understanding of relationships and the proper VALUATION IN the life, in the soul, of those things in a material life that may be made as the criterions; for, as is experienced, as HAS been experienced in the present, those things - while they may be in a manner that bring contentment, or a satisfaction rather in the material things of life - yet through slights, slurs, misunderstandings, often fame, fortune, position, peace of mind - as it were - takes wings and there is naught but to rely on that promise as has been made to mankind, womankind, since the foundations of the earth, "Will ye abide IN Me, I will abide in you." Take little thought of those things that are but of today. Knowest thou not that, art thou in that way of being a light to few or many in HIS way, that He will preserve thee against every opposition? against thine enemies, against the things evil spoken of, against those conditions that thou art seemingly unable to center as this or that? but KEEP the heart in accord with that thou knowest. As thou gained in the first portion of the experience, and in the developments as the budding into the womanhood, with those same thoughts, those same ideals, keep those trusts that thou knowest are true! Be not unmindful that, art thou in HIS keeping, He will not allow thee to be tempted beyond that ye are ABLE to bear. Doth He not clothe the sparrow and the lily alike? Doth He not provide for those of HIS creatures? Be thou rather in the hands of the LIVING God, than in the hands of those who speak lightly of the things thou wouldst do!
This concerns me too. I sense though that there will be a natural drawing together of like minded Fellowship members in the coming months, especially after many are so fortunate as to be able to meet in person in France this October, that we will have enough connections in place to keep in contact, and hopefully we can have enough EE trained members and teachers of the Cass/Laura/Fellowship knowledge spread around to keep "carrying the fire," in the days to come when/if we lose the internet. (That quote "carrying the fire," is from Cormac McCarthy's apocalyptic novel "The Road"--I just finished teaching it a fews days ago and it haunts me lately--it's a terrifying look at an end of humanity scenario.)What will happen to the internet? Will we still have access to the network?? I mean, between corporate buildings going up in flame and the ice age... I am worried.

He never pulled those behaviors again - although I felt horribly guilty spanking him as I had been led to believe that physical punishment of a child was evil. However, in those situations, I didn't think a time-out would have sufficed. Most of his discipline involved time-outs that included no TV, computer or video games for that day. My son was allowed to read after the time-out period. (He was reading at the age of 2 1/2 - we didn't really teach him - he just started to read!) It was effective as we did enforce it whenever he misbehaved or didn't follow the rules. Once when he threw a tantrum in a store because he wasn't getting what he wanted - I just picked him up, left the goods in the cart and took him home. He never threw a tantrum in a public place again. When he got older, he was lectured about responsibility and that there would always be consequences for his negative actions
