THOUGHTS ON HANUKKAH AND CHRISTMAS
As we approach the Holiday Season and the celebrations of Hanukkah and Christmas, I would like to share some thoughts. All too often these holidays get us so caught up in the social activities of celebration with eating, drinking, shopping and giving of gifts that we lose sight of what the real spiritual meaning is behind these religious events.
Long before religions were created by humans and continuing after such creations, we received messengers of the Divine to help guide us on a path towards spiritual self- realization of Oneness with the Divine/God. Many of these messengers or prophets were disregarded, seen as threats to those in power or, as in the case of Jesus, killed.
The idea of Oneness is antithetical to the ego which can only thrive in a consciousness of separateness and self-serving desires and actions which manifest into much pain and suffering as we see today. Humanity has for millennia been at battle individually and collectively with the ego consciousness of individuation.
We have misinterpreted individuation as this desire to preserve self at all costs rather than recognize that the Creation process requires an expression of the Divine in the greatest diversity possible, otherwise Creation would not exist. The ego is that small part of individuation within each of us as a part of diversity within the Whole. It is meant to allow us to manifest the Beauty, Grace and Love of the Divine in our own special way as co-creators. Because of our misinterpretation of the ego, we have allowed it to overtake our Inner Being, our connection with the Divine and All That Is in the world and breed a consciousness of separation. It is this consciousness of separation which is the cause of all our problems today.
This egoistic separation and the continued journey to get beyond ego to the Oneness of All becomes more evident everyday as we look upon our world we have collectively created. A world of ego and separation has manifested in a totally collapsing ecosystem, famine, sea rises which threaten whole societies, a failing food system, corruption in government and other human activity all over the world, species die-off, manipulated weather and toxins from climate engineering and all kinds of human drama separating us from attending to the lessons we need to learn and addressing of the mistakes we have made.
So, what does egoism and its manifestation of a consciousness of separation have to do with Hanukkah and Christmas? In Rav Michael Lichtman’s article, The Meaning of Hanukkah, he offers a Kabbalah perspective on the Hanukkah story.
The war of the Maccabees and the Greeks is a symbol of the conflict between our ego and desire to raise our consciousness to That of God. The Maccabees represent our Inner Being and the Greeks represent our ego. “It marks the beginning of our experience of the spiritual reality, the initial crossing of the barrier between the corporeal (egoistic) and spiritual (altruistic) worlds.”
The war that we are fighting is an inner conflict between our ego and our Inner Being. The more challenging this war becomes and the more determined we are to raise our consciousness from that of separateness to Oneness, the greater our triumph. In fact, the Universe will continue to present us with ever greater challenges until we learn the lessons we are here to learn in the Earth School, most of which relate to the conflicting desire of the illusion of separateness and division and that of Oneness and connection.
The miracle in the story of Hanukkah where the light of the lamp lasts for eight days is the awareness and acceptance of the “spiritual light of unity, love and bestowal” which happens when we individually and collectively connect with our Inner Being and Divine Oneness. Having personally experienced this in my own way I can say that such an embrace of love and oneness, while seeming like a miracle, is truly what we are.
Jesus’ teachings were all about giving up the idea of egoistic tendencies of separation and division and accepting the Oneness of God and connectedness. Here are some sayings attributed to his teachings which reflect this:
“Love one another.”
“Inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of my brethren, you did it to me.” - Gospel of Mathew
“Jesus saith (Ye ask? Who are those) that draw us (to the kingdom, if) the kingdom is Heaven?... the fowls of the air and all beasts that are under the earth or upon the earth and the fishes of the sea, (these are they which draw) you and the kingdom of Heaven is within you; and whoever shall know himself shall find it. (Strive therefor?) to know yourselves, and ye shall be aware that ye are the sons of the (almighty?) Father; (and?) ye shall know that ye are in (the city of God?) and ye are (the city?)
-Second Saying (Reconstructed) New Sayings of Jesus and Fragment of a Lost Gospel from Oxyrhynchus, Bernard P. Grenfell and Arthur Hunt
(This saying is all about Divine Oneness and how knowing ourselves is knowing our connectedness to the Divine, each other, all living creatures all of life. The world we have collectively manifested is the result of a dominate consciousness of separateness. As this dominant consciousness continues and as we fail to learn the lesson of Oneness, life here on Earth will get increasingly more challenging and painful until we wake up.)
"I am no longer in the world; and yet they themselves are in the world, and I come to You Holy Father, keep them in Your name, the name which You have given Me, that they may be one even as We are.
“For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every evil thing.”
"God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth." -John 4:24
“If we walk in the light, we have fellowship with each other…” -John 1:6-7
“God resists the proud and gives grace to the humble.” -1 Pet. 5:5
This holiday season let us remember the true spirit of Jesus and Hanukkah and That of God: We are all connected, we are all One. Have compassion for those whose pain may manifest in fear and hate. Forgive those whose actions may cause harm because they are too tied to their egos to truly see; and embrace the Love of the Divine as your own to bestow on all those you meet.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and a Holiday Season full of warmth, love and awakening.

GEOENGINEERING: THE ULTIMATE HUMAN MISTAKE AND HOW TO SHIFT COURSE
The interest in Geoengineering is growing as people become aware and begin to realize how they have been deceived. You can view the documentary Hacking the Planet: The Climate Engineering Reality on YouTube. Currently, CSNBC is framing Geoengineering as something we might consider, while the practice has actually been going on for decades.
I would like to share some thoughts on this topic with respect to my broader work in metaphysics. Consider that Humans are co-creators as that of the Divine. We have the power to manifest form in this world of the Earth School with our thoughts interacting with Law – the Universal Laws. We have been given the gifts of free-will and immortality as our true essence. All of us are creators of our world either consciously or unconsciously. With such power comes the responsibility to understand how we create and to do so based on the Divine’s wishes which is to manifest the Love, Goodness and Beauty the Divine shines on us every day. And, to recognize the importance of Law as it teaches us the interconnection of everything in the Universe: All is One. What we do to others we do to ourselves.
We are all that of the Divine. That is to say as Divine Creation expands infinitely, somewhere in this process God desires to create Humanity. Kabbalah talks of the Creature God creates called Adam (Human in Hebrew). This is a purely metaphysical creature of consciousness (I refer to as Human Creative Consciousness or HCC) of which we are all pieces. This creature was designed to co-create with the Divine in the never ending and expanding creation process. Six thousand years ago HCC made a metaphysical mistake with the desire to be God, which it could not do and as the Kabbalah story goes, its soul shattered into 600,000 pieces which I view as 600,000 pieces of separation from God and today has grown to 7.5 billion pieces of separation.
This desire to be God has revealed itself in our world as the desire to dominate and all the manifestations of Human domination which has created our world today. Manifestations of the desire to be God in our world can be seen as: The desire to dominate manifested in men (which I am still researching), the sense of separation not only from God but from all living things and people, the desire to dominate peoples of all kinds, the desire to dominate markets, the desire to dominate discourse, the desire to accumulate things many times more than what we need, the desire to dominate the world resulting in billions of people, perpetual wars and the desire to dominate Nature. This desire to dominate is Humanity’s greatest mistake and the cause of much unnecessary pain and struggle.
Geoengineering or Climate Engineering is Humanity’s ultimate manifestation of the desire to dominate, particularly Nature. While all anthropomorphic activity based on the desire to dominate has and continues to cause much damage to our world, I view Geoengineering as the purposeful act of manipulating Nature – in this case the weather. And, for 70 years the conscious desire to dominate has done a lousy job of manipulating Nature resulting in total disruption of our hydrological system, the destruction of the ozone layer, the stratospheric spraying of toxic nano-particles of metals and our near- term collapse if we do not shift our consciousness soon.
With such dire results of our deep- seated consciousness to dominate, what can we do? Let’s remember how powerful we are. We collectively created this world and we collectively can change it. Remember our power to co-create. Remember our free-will and remember we are immortal.
This means that in the Earth School we get to come back again and again until we learn the lessons necessary to create a world of love and joy as the Divine wishes for us. Part of how we shift our collective consciousness is to shift our own consciousness. This shift requires Conscious Creation. Conscious Creation is necessary if we are to achieve a critical mass of consciousness to make the shift away from domination and separation and towards cooperation and Oneness.
By first understanding our powers to co-create and purposely living by the Universal Laws we can begin to be aware of how our thoughts and actions affect others. We can begin to look for the consciousness behind any of the manifestations in our world today. Personally, I find I read and listen to the news totally different today than I did before I shifted my own consciousness 4 ½ years ago.
In my mind, Geoengineering is the culmination of all the mistakes that the Human consciousness of domination has manifested. It interconnects with all that the consciousness of domination and separation has resulted in the last 6,000 years that has triggered a continuum of cause and effect which is now exponentially affecting all life on the planet.
Innately we all know this. Most people choose not to face our mistakes as parts of Humanity because it elicits emotions of fear and guilt. This is why we need to forgive ourselves, forgive others and have compassion for all that has been affected by our collective desire to dominate. We need to purposely shift our consciousness towards Oneness, interconnection, collaboration, acceptance, adaptation to an interconnected world, love, joy and move forward with the knowledge that we have the power to make a difference once we choose to make such a shift in consciousness a priority.
This can all be a challenge. The desire to dominate is strong and “All is not as it seems” as there is much untruth in the world today. We have to continue to question what is spoken and research that which we desire truth. This is why I am engaging folks in discussion and encourage you to explore this more at www.geoengineeringwatch.org. New information on this issue is coming out through corporate media now which is totally deceptive claiming that Geoengineering may have to be used when it is in practice every day in our skies now.
I need to be clear here that I am not trying to paint a picture of gloom and doom. While we are fast approaching a world much different than that which we lived in the past or even today, we are all immortal and can take solace in the fact that we can choose to do what we wish – with the corresponding results from the Universal Laws. We get to try again. However, as we each individually make the shift of consciousness a higher priority, we each receive the results of such desire. If we continue to ignore our mistakes for whatever reason, the Universal Laws will respond in kind. That’s just how the Laws work.
Remember, behind everything is a consciousness. The dominant consciousness today is quickly manifesting an uninhabitable world. Before we can change that which we manifest in our world we need to raise our consciousness, recognize our true essence as That of God, know our power to co-create, know the Divine loves us unconditionally and fearlessly seek truth. Even in the midst of such challenges we can still experience joy as we continue to learn in the Earth School, for joy is what the Divine intended for us. From struggle comes joy as we understand our true essence as co-creators and fully embrace the power and responsibility of that which we are.
THE HUMAN DESIRE TO DOMINATE AND WEATHER MANIPULATION
Geoengineering is No Longer a Conspiracy Theory
We have been duped for decades. No matter what your understanding of the climate change debate, whatever your concerns may or may not be with regard to this issue there is a major component not be discussed which is exponentially more threatening to our way of life than anything you might think you know. What I am referring to is the greatest affront to Nature that Humanity has manifested since its inception here on Earth.
What I’m talking about takes place right in front of our eyes every day and yet people are totally unaware. What I am referring to is being supported by our government and other major governments across the globe. The full ramifications of this blatant act of human domination is not even fully understood by its proponents. The results of this manifested human action produce toxins which permeate all aspects of our life: Food, soils, water, air, plants, trees and all living species including humans.
You’re probably thinking, “This must be some crazy conspiracy theory, some nutty people trying to conjure up fear in populations – it can’t possibly be our government is purposely causing such damage to us, can it?” “Who in their right mind would want to do something like this?”
Geoengineering is no longer a conspiracy theory as you will read below. Since the earliest days of human discourse, there has been the desire to control Nature. My work in Metaphysics is exploring this. Unfortunately, with advances in technology Humanity has found methods of controlling certain aspects of Nature resulting in imbalances which threaten our very existence.
For the last 70 years, so called scientists have been using technology to manipulate the weather. This purposeful manipulation of the weather is called Geoengineering. It allows those who have control of this technology to enhance, direct, stall and speed up weather conditions such as hurricanes through stratospheric spraying of nano particles of heavy metals and microwave blasts. It also allows the weather controllers to create fake snow, ice and hail through a process called chemical ice nucleation.
This Human desire to control the weather has exacerbated whatever else has been done to our environment by other anthropogenic activity. If all this other activity were to suddenly end and Geoengineering continued, our planet would still be in dire straits.
Geoengineering is the greatest existential threat we face today short of total nuclear catastrophe and has been purposely eliminated from public debate by every major institution including major environmental organizations. Now that our government has been spraying our skies with toxic nano-particles of aluminum and other metals for decades, corporate media is now saying that geoengineering might be necessary, though not necessarily a good thing.
What was once thought of as a conspiracy theory is now coming to light in so called “trusted” media, though not in a forthright manner. The desire to deceive is great as is the desire to dominate and with the skies laden with a milky white, the ruling elite now is seeking ways to explain away what damage they have done for decades. The power of those who are promoting this effort is that great.
There is one organization which has been researching and advocating this issue on behalf of all Humanity for nearly 20 years. That is geoengineeringwatch.org. This organization has a repository of information on this issue unsurpassed in its detail and relevance. They have also helped to pass anti-geoengineering legislation for the state of Rhode Island and continue to work to educate the public and our leaders.
I have been personally studying this issue for five years and connecting it with the human desire to dominate which has permeated our world for the last 6,000 years. It is now time for all of us to awaken to our own power to create the world we want, purposely seek the truth of who we are and shift the collective consciousness of Humanity towards the Goodness of the Divine. I will discuss this further in the next post.

HUMANITY – A METAPHYSICAL STORY
by Gary Rosenberg
by Gary Rosenberg
As those of you who have been reading my writings know by now, I spend a lot of time exploring the metaphysical world. This has been a strong desire in my search for answers to why our world is as it is, our role in creating it, how we create it and how we can make it a more loving place for all.
This search has led me to many wonderful messengers of God: Writers, spiritual systems, books, teachers, strangers and many people who carry much wisdom we can all benefit from. I take all this and combine it with strong messages – thoughts I receive which can keep me awake nights full of excitement and wonder. I then formulate what I believe are messages which can be helpful for others in their quest for connection with the Universal Mind/Divine/God. Below is my first such message to share in 2019:
THE STORY OF HCC
Kabbalah talks about the ‘thought of creation when the Creator decides to create a Creature upon which It will bestow love, joy, goodness and pleasure. As such this Creature is desirous of receiving this pleasure, for in order to receive it needs to want. The Creature is also bestowed with free will and the power to co-create with the Creator.
The creature is a metaphysical creature, creation of pure conscious thought stemming from the Creator/Divine/God. This Creature I refer to as Human Creative Consciousness (HCC) or Humanity. The Divine is excited about Its Creation and offers it a world of form to practice co-creation using its free will. This world can be manifested in any way HCC desires, though such manifestations are governed by Universal Laws which are impersonal, non-judgmental and always enforced.
The Divine continues to bestow thoughts of goodness, joy and pleasure on HCC. HCC takes these messages and begins to play, to manifest co-creations in this world and as HCC does this it finds some satisfaction, though not what it quite had in mind. So, co-creation continues to change and evolve. Remember, HCC is not independently creating these things, but only with the connection and help of the Creator.
Everything that HCC thinks of with the strongest desire is manifested in this world of form. Think of it like a child drawing on a dry erase board and as it creates something it doesn’t want, it simply erases it and tries again. This is in some ways how HCC practices co-creation in the world of form and as a participant in the Creation process everything co-created is subject to change. Change is a constant in Creation. Without it, Creation would stop.
The world given to HCC evolves as it practices and learns how the co-creation process works. God continues to bestow thoughts of goodness, love and pleasure on HCC. As this continues over eons at some point HCC with its design of free will wonders about where these thoughts are coming from. As a co-creator with the Divine HCC realizes that All really initiates from the Divine and HCC, with free will develops the desire to no longer be like the Creator, but to be the Creator.
In fact, HCC receives this desire to be the Creator from the Creator. In order for the Creator to exist it needs to desire to be It. So, being a part of and connected with the Divine, HCC picks up this thought/this desire to be the Creator and decides that this is what it wants to do.
This desire on the part of HCC to be the creator changed our world and created it as we see today. The desire to be the Creator resulted in what Kabbalah refers to as the Shattering of Adam’s (HCC) soul and what the New Testament refers to as the Fallen Angel. The Shattering often refers to Adam’s soul breaking into 600,000 pieces (or some number) and thus creating our world today. Think of it as hundreds of thousands of pieces of separation from the Creator.
This desire to be the Divine, to dominate is a metaphysical mistake HCC made which we are all living with today. The desire to be God interacting with the Universal Laws initiated a whole stream of new desires and manifestations.
Within Creation governed by the Universal Laws there is no way HCC could be the Divine no matter how much it desired to do so or how strong its intent. If the Universal Laws were to manifest HCC’s desire to be God, then there had to be a separation (or appearance of separation) of HCC from the Creator. So, began HCC’s desire to dominate, to be the only One which of course it could not do.
However, this desire was so strong that the non-judgmental Universal Laws (such as the law of cause and effect, the law of attraction) working with the Divine manifested what HCC wanted which was a’ world of illusion’ that HCC was the Creator. This set up a world of duality, separation (from the One and each other, Nature, etc) which has manifested much of the pain, struggle and challenges we continue to face today.
All of this is proceeding in the Earth School created by God for HCC to ‘practice’ and learn co-creation with free will. The intent of the Creator in creating HCC was to bestow goodness and pleasure on HCC as a partner or co-creator to assist in the process of Creation.
HCC is still learning and making mistakes. As part of the Shattering, we have become manifestations of HCC’s thoughts, direct spiritual descendants of HCC who is the child of God. As part of the desire to dominate we have multiplied in numbers in this world. How better to dominate a world than to overpopulate it? As part of HCC’s desire to dominate, our desires to dominate manifest exploitation of Nature, pollution, exploitation of women, children and each other, wars against ‘the others,’ a system of resource distribution based on individual profit maximization, greed, political corruption, chemical pollution and now weather manipulation, all for perceived domination.
HCC (Humanity) is out of balance at its soul level. All the pain and struggle we experience stems from this. And yet we still have this connection with love and joy, as does HCC because of our connection with the Divine. We still see manifestations of God’s original intent. Our job is to work to heal HCC and bring it back into balance. As we, with the strongest of intentions, desires and actions pursue HCC’s healing we will begin to see the corresponding manifestations in our world.
As the old Hermetic philosophic saying states: As above so below, as below so above.

"Hi Gary, I hope you are well. Interesting day today. Prayers answered!!! I got a phone call from my son. We haven't talked in over 12 years. He has been unsuccessful at getting my phone number from his mom's side of the family. Their sole aim was to cast me away, and it worked. The other day he found an old copy of my NY driver's license. He thought his girlfriend could use it to locate me, and it worked. He called the house phone today, talked with his grandmother and she gave him my number. We had a great hour- long conversation followed by texting each other pictures. It almost feels surreal. Did this just happen? I kept it together all through my conversation with my son, then just collapsed emotionally right after. What a beautiful moment. Then earlier today I randomly picked my own $25 gift card at work followed by being named September employee of the month which landed me another gift card. And I saw two rainbows yesterday. I won't lie, the last week saw some agitation, frustration, confusion over right livelihood etc but Infinite Intelligence is definitely manifesting some things. Be well Coach."
Mark, Life Coaching Client
I have not written in months and apologize for this long lapse, especially with the ambitious agenda I outlined at the beginning of the year. However, Life chose another direction for me and I followed.
I have been focusing my attention as a Life Coach incorporating the powers of the metaphysical or spiritual world in manifesting realities in our world. The quote above from a client describes just one of the results he has experienced in harnessing his own power to co-create in his life. Mark has made incredible progress in his own spiritual self-realization and is happier than he has ever been.
I have taken all that I have studied, practiced and meditated on and now share this with those ready to receive and use this knowledge for their own growth in all aspects of their lives. The exciting part of this venture is what I have learned I can now teach to others with good results.
What I do as a Life Coach is what so many sages, mystics, spiritual leaders, Yogis, Gurus and others have been doing for millennia. I have simply chosen to follow their lead in extending this practice to others. Essentially, I am now taking all that I have written about and practiced to purposely help others co-create their own lives.
It has all been very exciting. Now I am ready to share more thoughts with all of you.
As we celebrate the New Year let us take time to reflect on our connectedness with others, Nature and all Creation. For Moses, Jesus, Buddha, Gandhi, Martin Luther King and all spiritual leaders, teachers and prophets have consistently been sent to guide us towards out true essence which is Love, Oneness and our connection with all that the Divine has created.
In 2019 I will share concepts, ideas and teachings revealed to me which will take us on a journey into the metaphysical world of thought, co-creation, consciousness, joy, pain and all that we as humans co-create with the Universal Creative Consciousness which is what we call God.
As our world manifests itself in what seems like chaos it becomes more important to understand just how we, through our connection with the Human Creative Consciousness have created the world we live in today. And, given our gift of free will, how we can and must change it – bring it back into balance.
We have the power to individually and collectively do this, just as Mark found the power to individually change his life.
