Transform, Transmute Your Lower Self Elements

Your "person"ality is the lower range of your total vibrational spectrum and is your 'lower self'. It is not evil (though  it can become entangled in astral difficulties). That is one reason to purify and cleanse your etheric, memory, mental, emotional and physical bodies.

Your soul is of the next higher realm and your spirit the highest (roughly speaking). All are connected by the "crystal cord". And though godly goodness flows from higher to lower vibrational levels, no ungodliness can transverse to the higher.

So, in order to achieve more "at•one•ment" with your higher self, you need to increase the vibrational levels of the lower self. Misconceptions, negativities, irrationalities, hostilities, ingratitudes, fearfulness, weaknesses, etcetera need to be purified, cleansed, transmuted, transformed. The lower self becomes more en•light•ened. You become more Spirit•ual. This is a process that goes on and on and on.

You cannot do this by yourself, though it is you and only you that must make the decision to do so. You need to ask for your angels' assistance. They await your call. 

Helpful tips:
Write down specific incidents in your life that need forgiveness. Think of them one at a time while reciting decrees of the Violet Flame. 
"I Am a being of Violet Fire;
I Am the purity God desires."

Is Dementia Hereditary?

"Despite its prevalence in the aging population, Alzheimer’s is not a natural part of aging. Instead, damage to the brain results from abnormal clumps of plaque and fiber bundles collecting throughout the hippocampus, and damaged nerve cells compromise the neuron’s ability to transmit messages to different parts of the brain. Research has found that" Alzheimer’s disease is not generally inherited. 

“People with a family history of disease may have the most to gain from lifestyle changes and screening tests. In many cases, adopting a healthier lifestyle can reduce your risk for diseases that run in your family.”

Making chronic diseases disappear:

Prevent Dementia Using Simple Strategies

* A diet that increases inflammation, such as one that includes high amounts of wheat, refined carbs and sugar is one of the root causes and greatest risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease; diet is also a foundational prevention and treatment strategy
* To prevent Alzheimer’s, you need to focus on a diet that powers your brain and body with healthy fats, not net carbs
* Alzheimer’s prevention and treatment is best approached from a holistic perspective. Besides a ketogenic diet, lifestyle factors that come into play include exercise, sleep, stress reduction, sun exposure and social interaction

Why U.S. Antimissile System In South Korea Worries China

"The Chinese government worries that the American antimissile system, called the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense, or Thaad, could erode its nuclear deterrent — its ability to scare off potential foes from ever considering a nuclear attack."

"Its chief worry is not that Thaad could take down missiles: the system offers a canopy of potential protection over South Korea, but does not have the reach to bring down China’s intercontinental ballistic missiles. Instead, China’s complaint is focused on Thaad’s radar system, which Chinese experts have said could be used to track the People’s Liberation Army’s missile forces."

"Deploying Thaad’s current radar system “would undermine China’s nuclear deterrence by collecting important data on Chinese nuclear warheads,” Li Bin, a nuclear weapons expert at Tsinghua University in Beijing, wrote last week."

"He and other Chinese experts say the radar could identify which Chinese missiles are carrying decoy warheads intended to outfox foes. That would be like being able to see what cards China holds in a nuclear poker game, and that could weaken China’s deterrent, they say."

“For China this is a very important point, because its missiles are limited in number to begin with,” Wu Riqiang, a nuclear expert at Renmin University in Beijing. That meant, he said, “China could lose its nuclear retaliatory capacity.”

"For China, it does not matter that the American and South Korean governments have said Thaad is meant only to foil North Korean missiles. Mr. Wu said."

“What we worry about is the ability. It doesn’t matter to us whether the United States says this is aimed at North Korea or China,” Mr. Wu said. “If there’s this ability, then China must worry.”

Trump to Weaken Anti-corruption Efforts Further

The "Foreign Corrupt Practices Act" is the jewel in the crown of America’s fight against international business bribes and corporate favors. Intended to promote American business and foreign-policy ideals around the world, and give US companies a tool to battle corruption abroad, it has also helped other countries crack down on bribery, and has extracted billions of dollars in fines.

The FCPA makes it illegal for US companies and people working abroad to engage in corrupt acts such as bribing officials. It bans foreign firms and people from doing the same in the US. American companies with listed securities must keep accurate, transparent records and not hide payments in “off-the-books” accounts.

But under US president Donald Trump, it may lose its bite... he has killed a rule to crack down on foreign bribery by US energy companies, refused to release his tax returns, and canceled ethics training for White House staff.

Trump’s business has also come under public scrutiny regarding the FCPA. The New Yorker reported on March 6 that the Trump Organization had helped build a hotel in Azerbaijan owned by the family of a cabinet minister with ties to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, which the US government has accused of money-laundering and terrorism. Though it’s not clear if the deal itself violated the FCPA, in order to avoid breaking the law, US companies usually extensively investigate potential partners for corruption. One lawyer told the New Yorker, “I’ve had very few clients do so little due diligence” as the Trump Organization did.

Finally, Trump has nominated Jay Clayton, a Wall Street defense lawyer, to head the Securities and Exchange Commission. The SEC enforces the FCPA along with the Department of Justice (DoJ). In 2011 Clayton co-wrote a lengthy paper criticizing the law and its “zealous” enforcement......

Why Daylight Saving Time? Retailer Lobbyists.

"The powerful retail lobby, particularly recreation, bbq, and home and gardening remains invested in keeping DST. Longer nights mean people have more time to shop and go to baseball games (and use more gas—further cutting into the alleged energy savings)..... each year the convenience store lobby (a large supplier of gas) gives out gift bags to Congress to celebrate DST..... every 20 years the federal government adds another month of DST—the last one in 2005, in part, because the sugar lobby wanted to extend trick or treating hours. And each time we extend DST, America becomes more out of sync with the rest of the world.
The anti-DST movement doesn’t have the organization to compete with the retail lobby. The American economy has changed since the early days of DST. Now, retailers wield more power than the traditional voice of opposition, 2000 more Americans lived on golf courses than farms."

In short, citizenry counts less than lobbyists once again.

NAFTA's Legacy: Who Won, Who Lost?!

"The North American Free Trade Agreement was a 1994 accord between the U.S., Canada, and Mexico that lifted tariffs on most products moving between the three nations. It was the first trade agreement to include protections for intellectual property. NAFTA had bipartisan backing, having been negotiated by a Republican president — George H.W. Bush — and signed by his Democratic successor, Bill Clinton, after passing the Senate 61-38...."

..."Supporters say the agreement has helped employ 14 million Americans in fields such as retail, finance, and agriculture, and provided cheaper goods to U.S. consumers. About 5 million American jobs are directly tied to trade with Mexico, and 9 million are tied to trade with Canada .... (while) nearly 700,000 U.S. workers lost good jobs as a result, mostly in manufacturing; those who kept their jobs saw wages flatline, at least partly because of Mexican competition....
But economists say that NAFTA alone didn't cause their pain, citing the rise of China as an economic powerhouse, the 2008 financial collapse, and — above all, perhaps — automation and new technology that rendered many 20th-century jobs obsolete."

"Most economists agree NAFTA could use updating; one popular proposal is to require Mexico to increase wages, labor standards, and environmental rules, which would lessen the advantages of outsourcing. But most economists do not believe that changing NAFTA — or scrapping it — will usher in a Rust Belt renaissance. Far more jobs have been automated than outsourced. Most of the jobs that disappeared over the past decades can never exist again. Period."

How It's Made episodes:

My Comment: The progress of technology is further advancing the "industrial revolution". Worldwide, people as hands-on assemblage manufacturing workers, will continue to play a diminished role as they are replaced by machines. Note, however, there is a shortage of skilled laborers  overall.

Profitable Corporations That Pay Little Or No Taxes

"A new analysis of 258 profitable Fortune 500 companies that earned more than $3.8 trillion in profits showed that, although the top corporate rate is 35 percent, hardly any company actually pays that."

"The truth is that we have a rigged tax code that has essentially legalized tax dodging for large corporations. Offshore tax haven abuse has become so absurd that one five-story office building in the Cayman Islands is now the 'home' to more than 18,000 corporations."

"Tax reformers have long argued that the nominal 35 percent federal rate on corporate profits more often than not functions like a strike-through price — an artificially inflated number that sounds high but rarely applies. Thanks to a variety of loopholes and tax-dodging methods, those 258 corporations paid an average rate of 21.2 percent."

Plato's Cave and the "Mighty I Am Presence"

Plato gave us the "Allegory of the Cave":
Simplistically put, imagine a person is chained in a dark cave affixed facing the cave wall. There is a fire behind him (source of light). His form and anything else that passes in front of the fire casts a shadow on the cave wall. This is all that the prisoner has ever seen. This is his reality.

There's more to the allegory; but, let's deal with just this in the following way. If the fire is our inner 'fire' (God self) and the light passes through our Memory Body aka Akashic Etheric Body, what is manifested on the wall are the images of such contained therein, much the same as when you view pictures projected onto a screen from a film. Some elements are valid truths but others are not. The misconceptions create darkened images on the wall that create discord. Light shining through truths create ephemeral beauty that inspire goodness.

The goal becomes to dissolve misconceptions and irrationalities that create negativities, hostilities, weaknesses, ingratitudes and such that are disharmonious with spiritual and cosmic law. This will free you enough from the world of illusion (Maya) to allow you to break your self imposed chains and work your way out into the real Light.

Trump: Further Ado About Deepening National Debt

Our national debt started ballooning dramatically during the Bush years with the Iraq War and reduction of capital gains taxes. It further increased during Obama's tenure with the extension of the capital gains tax reductions and with the Affordable Care Act. Now, we have Trump who will add corporate income tax reductions. Our already staggering debt will become 'crushing'. This will lead to weakening the dollar and to inflation.
