The world we face today is one of anguish, suffering, and a whole lot of sadness. We all feel things are not right, but we cannot quite express what is happening. We know the world of economic hope is missing on a global basis. We know that politics and economies are rigged against us, but we have no idea what to do about it. In fact, we are resigned to a degree as to the current state of affairs.
However, if we really can understand what we could do “about it”, we most certainly would do so collectively. We contend that what has really been systematically stolen from us is JOY!

Ask yourself a quiet reflective question. When was the last time you really experienced joy? Sad huh? It is time we again found joy in our lives. Then ponder why it is that joy is so elusive being that it is after all just a state of mind. If we approach this in a scientific manner, then consider a study of true science is a study of God. Angels are organizations natural in accordance with God’s laws. They appear superhuman, because of our ignorance concerning the higher natural forces. They exist in exact accordance with the laws that govern the universe; but as yet the attraction between clay and clay-bound spirit is so great as to prevent the enthralled soul of man from communicating with them. The faith of the religionist is an example of the unquenchable feeling that creates a belief as well as a hope that there is a self-existence separate from earthy substances. The scoffing scientific agnostic, working for other objects, will yet astonish himself by elaborating a method that will practically demonstrate these facts, and then empirical religion, as exemplified by the unquestioning faithful believer, and systematic science, as typified in the experimental materialist, will meet on common ground.
The next several weeks and months will be fraught with much anxiety and bring great revelations that will astonish us all. Information that will makes us angry and create within us a state of disbelief. Every thing we thought we knew will be undone. It has already started. As these incredible events unfold, remember it is simply a sudden and dramatic expansion of our understanding of how the universe is really organized. Therefore, accept this knowledge with joy, knowing it is now time to understand truths that are universal and timeless. It is now time to open our eyes and for all of us a time to truly wake up!
