During An Ebola Pandemic All Of Your Rights Would Essentially Be Meaningless

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

Prison Fence - Public DomainIf there is a major Ebola pandemic in America, all of the liberties and the freedoms that you currently enjoy would be gone.  If government officials believe that you have the virus, federal law allows them to round you up and detain you “for such time and in such manner as may be reasonably necessary.”  In addition, the CDC already has the authority to quarantine healthy Americans if they reasonably believe that they may become sick.  During an outbreak, the government can force you to remain isolated in your own home, or the government may forcibly take you to a treatment facility, a tent city, a sports stadium, an old military base or a camp.  You would not have any choice in the matter.  And you would be forced to endure any medical procedure mandated by the government.  That includes shots, vaccines and the drawing of blood.  During such a scenario, you can scream about your “rights” all that you want, but it won’t do any good.

In case you are tempted to think that I am making this up, I want you to read what federal law actually says.  The following is 42 U.S.C. 264(d).  I have added bold for emphasis…

(1) Regulations prescribed under this section may provide for the apprehension and examination of any individual reasonably believed to be infected with a communicable disease in a qualifying stage and (A) to be moving or about to move from a State to another State; or (B) to be a probable source of infection to individuals who, while infected with such disease in a qualifying stage, will be moving from a State to another State. Such regulations may provide that if upon examination any such individual is found to be infected, he may be detained for such time and in such manner as may be reasonably necessary. For purposes of this subsection, the term “State” includes, in addition to the several States, only the District of Columbia.

(2) For purposes of this subsection, the term “qualifying stage”, with respect to a communicable disease, means that such disease—

(A) is in a communicable stage; or

(B) is in a precommunicable stage, if the disease would be likely to cause a public health emergency if transmitted to other individuals.

In addition, as I discussed above, the CDC already has the authority to isolate people that are not sick to see if they do become sick.  The following is what the CDC website says about this…

Quarantine is used to separate and restrict the movement of well persons who may have been exposed to a communicable disease to see if they become ill. These people may have been exposed to a disease and do not know it, or they may have the disease but do not show symptoms. Quarantine can also help limit the spread of communicable disease.

On a very basic level, we are already starting to see this happen in Texas.  Obviously Thomas Eric Duncan has already been “isolated”, and now his family has been placed under mandatory quarantine and ordered not to leave their home for 21 days

Texas health officials have placed the Dallas family of a Liberian national infected with Ebola under quarantine and ordered them not to leave their home or have any contact with outsiders for 21 days without approval of the local or state health department.

The “control order” also requires the family of Thomas Eric Duncan to be available to provide blood samples and agree to any testing required by public health officials. Officials said Thursday that the four or five family members could face criminal charges for violating the order, which was delivered to them in writing Wednesday evening.

Police have been stationed at the apartment complex to ensure residents’ safety, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings told a news briefing Thursday afternoon.

If we could all just stay in our homes during a national Ebola emergency, that wouldn’t be so bad.

But if thousands (or even millions) of cases start popping up it simply will not be possible for law enforcement authorities to monitor so many homes.

This is a point that Mike Adams of Natural News made exceptionally well…

When just one family is suspected of carrying Ebola, they can be easily monitored in a “volunteer home isolation” scenario. But what happens when it’s 100 families? 500? 1,000? At that point, there aren’t enough state or federal workers to keep an eye on these people, and the quarantine effort will almost certainly shift to forced relocation into quarantine camps.

Those camps will, of course, be called something nice-sounding like “Community Health Centers.” No one in government or media will call them camps, even though they are camps. The word “camp” brings up echoes of “concentration camps” and the government definitely wants to avoid that association.

If one particular town or city is hit especially hard with the virus, there is a likelihood of the entire town being quarantined. No one in, no one out. Everybody will be ordered to “shelter in place” in their own homes for at least 21 days while health workers wearing hazmat suits go door to door, identifying Ebola victims and “relocating” them to the “Community Health Centers.”

If that sounds like “martial law” to you, that is because it would essentially be martial law.

For the moment, public health authorities are pledging that nothing like this will ever happen because they have everything completely under control.

Others are not so sure.

For example, on Thursday a doctor from Missouri named Gil Mobley checked in for a flight at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport dressed in a mask, goggles, gloves, boots and a protective white jumpsuit.  On the back of the jumpsuit, he had written the following words:  “CDC is lying!”

Mobley believes that we are not being told the truth about the spread of Ebola.  And he is convinced that as Ebola continues to spread exponentially, that we will eventually “be importing clusters of Ebola on a daily basis”

“Once this disease consumes every third world country, as surely it will, because they lack the same basic infrastructure as Sierra Leone and Liberia, at that point, we will be importing clusters of Ebola on a daily basis,” Mobley predicted. “That will overwhelm any advanced country’s ability to contain the clusters in isolation and quarantine. That spells bad news.”

Mobley, a Medical College of Georgia graduate who had an overnight layover after flying to Atlanta from Guatemala on Wednesday, said that he feels that the CDC is “asleep at the wheel” when it comes to screening passengers arriving in the United States from other countries.

“Yesterday, I came through international customs at the Atlanta airport,” the doctor told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “The only question they asked arriving passengers is if they had tobacco or alcohol.”

Earlier on Thursday, there were reports of people being tested for Ebola in Hawaii, Kentucky and Utah.  None of those tests has produced a confirmed case of Ebola as I write this article.

Many Americans are still treating this Ebola crisis as if it was just one big joke.

But Ebola is no joking matter.  This is a very, very serious disease.

Just consider the experience of one British health worker that witnessed a young brother and sister both die one day apart

‘The next morning I came in and saw him lying as I had left him, on the bed.

‘He wasn’t breathing. I remember going up to him and looking at his face, his lips were drawn back in a grimace, and his eyes were vacant, lying in a pool of his own diarrhea.

‘I lifted his hand to try, just to confirm things and his whole body turned rigid and cold.

‘I put him in a body bag as his sister looked on.

‘She seemed more baffled than anything, not really understanding what was happening. I carried his corpse outside with the others.

‘The little girl, she deteriorated the next day. Overnight, the following night she had intravenous fluids and the line came out and she bled.

‘I came in the following morning and she was covered in blood. She still had a very puzzled expression on her face and she wasn’t breathing.

‘So I put her in a bag and left her next to her brother. She was a beautiful little girl.’

Hopefully our medical authorities are correct and this virus will not spread easily in this country.

But at this point even some of our top politicians are wondering if we are truly getting accurate information.  For example, check out what U.S. Senator Rand Paul had to say on the Laura Ingraham Show just recently…

“I really think that it is being dominated by political correctness and I think because of political correctness we’re not really making sound, rational, scientific decisions on this.” Paul said referring to statements issued by the CDC last week that assured there was little risk of an outbreak occurring in the US.

“We should not underestimate the transmissibility of this,” said Paul, a doctor himself, adding that medical workers have been contracting the virus even though they are taking precautions and covering themselves with gowns and masks.

My suspicion is that it’s a lot more transmissible than that if people who are taking every precaution are getting it. There are people getting it who simply helped people get in or out of a taxicab.” Paul said.

Let’s pray that this crisis fizzles out, because if it doesn’t, we could truly be looking at the greatest health crisis that any of us have ever seen.

And along with countless numbers of people getting sick and dying, we would also have to deal with government-imposed medical martial law.

The stakes are extremely high, and so let us hope that this crisis does not escalate any further.

    I understand quarantining in place, in a single family house. But putting people under quarantine in an apartment building is just dumb. Before I could afford my first house, I lived in apartments. Even with my neighbors windows closed and my windows closed. I could at times smell cooking oders. That tells me apartments are not exactly air tight. Those of you who have lived in apartments, would you feel safe being next door to a quarantine situation?

    • Firstgarden

      I can’t stand the rap music.

      • GSOB

        I love rap. It’s the violent rap that’s crap. It ain’t even music if you ask me.

        • Firstgarden

          I meant gangster rap. :-{{{

    • Cranky

      The alternative is to haul people of to a compound. Given the general populations unwillingness to stay under self-quarantine, I can understand why compulsory / enforced quarantine might need to occur.

    • Orange Jean

      This mornings news (Fox that is) has an article that says family members who’ve been exposed refused to stay home when requested, which is why they got quarantined legally.

      I agree to some extent with your comment about apartments… but what are the alternatives. If they started hauling people away to FEMA camps (as an alternative), we’d never hear the end of it… would we?

      • K

        I would hope a better alternative than a FEMA camp, could be found. But whatever it takes, the lives of the neighbors, should not be endangered. Also remember those neighbors are still coming in contact with the general public. And as far as I have heard, all the infected material, sheets and such is still in the apartment. I am sure some have already left temporarily. But what about the ones who can not afford to? .

        • Orange Jean

          I’m inclined to think if I lived in that apartment complex, and wasn’t quarantined… I’d get the heck out however I had to. Stay with family, camp out if necessary,etc. But this situation reminds me a lot of Katrina… I’ve read that specific complex basically has a slum lord, so probably most living there can’t afford much and they are in a city besides, maybe don’t have a car.

          Right now it looks like the health department has something in place to remove and properly destroy contaminated waste, which may help a bit. The fact the guy puked outdoors, not so good….

          It makes me think adding BLEACH to storage for prepping is a very important idea. (Bleach kills off even HIV, hanta virus, and Norovirus… I’d guess good to use with Ebola contaminated items also … but itself is highly toxic, so if you’ve got kids got to store safely).

          I really don’t have any other good ideas, but I don’t like the idea of someone who’s been exposed running around willy nilly (as apparently this guy’s family was).

          • K

            Glad to hear, they have finally decide to destroy the infected material, about time. Yes bleach is very important to have in preps. Even more important bleach wipes. I suspect they may be hard to find soon. Thanks for your input Jean

            Am inclined to think that the complex population may have access to emergency, temporary housing assistance.
            Would hope they have seen “case workers” for relocation assistance. That is…if such an Ebola Response component was put in place. But given the poorly executed processes thus far, I doubt authorities gave it a thought. Think Katrina & emergency relocation efforts.

  • GSOB

    The government entity CDC is not the enemy.

    There is no conspiracy to reduce the people.

    If it were to happen that I get this virus,…
    what choice do I have but to endure?

    I would expect to be isolated, tested and I hope for you all…the same…. to recover. That’s automatic.

    To have the virus is one thing .

    For someone to be concerned or not for others when they think they may have it,…….
    well…. that depends on who you are and sounds easy to manage.

    But when you are feeling really, really sink,… the fear takes over and you may be concerned with none other than yourself.

    There is really no way to get ahead, just to tracking it right now..

    If it gets worse and spreads….
    It can affect our economy terribly…. but this also could be America’s opportunity to shine, Lord willing.

    • Janice

      Nurse didn’t miss it. ER triage data is entered in patient data at point of intake.. Those medical personnel BEYOND that point…failed to fully read patient bio info. System failure! An automatic “red flag” should be programmed in as a high alert status for suspected Ebola symptoms.. Should be first entry in patient bio…in pulsating, large RED font. Too many system failures in Dallas.

      Not a good sign for any of us.

  • Bill

    Is there any sanity left? Can we rationalize anything? How could any human justify wiping out millions of fellow humans?

    Perhaps the chem trails have done us all in. Some day soon there may not be another day.

    • T.

      There is No sanity left. Due to the purposeful Gross Negligence by the Government and the CDC in protecting Americans from Ebola – We will soon experience Medical Martial Law and that will later be turned into Military Martial Law. That is The Plan.

      Maybe Thomas was sent by Muslims to spread this disease on purpose and to seek afterlife rewards from Allah; however he will burn in hell. Otherwise why would he knowingly expose his relatives? The kids need to be pulled out of the four schools involved never to return. Online education is free and the best bet now days, there’s that other disease spreading that causes paralysis that kids get. All flights coming out of west Africa must be banned . Some countries have banned incoming flights already. Our gov is stuck in stupid letting them in.

      • Mudpie

        I actually agree to some extent. But we need to prosecute him for negligent homicide if somebody else dies. He can answer to God for his sins.

    • neal

      He may have done something bad, then again had he been truthful about his exposure he would have likely died in some turd world dump. How many other people will tell the same sort of untruths to either get away from a similar hell hole (to avoid exposure) or to get to where they can get treatment if they think they might already be sick?

  • pk

    We need a fence like the one in your photo across our southern border. In between the two fences there should be hungry pit bulls.

  • Orange Jean

    Most of you may not be aware of this, but the laws in public health that apply to things like quarantine are not new…. it’s just that we’ve been lucky not to have needed to use them in most places for many years.

    I had a friend in San Diego, she worked in TB control for the County… and part of her job was issuing quarantine orders for people. Not an easy job, she actually caught TB from one of her “clients”… was sick as a dog for a year getting the necessary treatment. She was just very fortunate it wasn’t multi-drug resistant TB, or she would have died. She saw quite a bit of TB when she worked there, including multi-drug resistant TB, mostly among illegals.

    Unfortunately, there are times when laws like that are needed for the good of the rest of us.

    • Tom

      What happens when state and local authorities refuse to go door to door or pick people up for transport to “community health centers” if/when they get sick like Orange Jean’s friend?
      The civil unrest that will occur when people cannot adequately eat or move about freely could be very bad as well

      • Orange Jean

        You make a good point there. I work in public health myself. When I was hired, I had to agree that if there was a pandemic (they were assuming flu, but it could easily be anything)… and I was ordered to go into work and I refused, I could be jailed. In another job I was told I would be required to report to work if there was a disaster, such as a hurricane… as my department in that job was responsible for manning one of the emergency response phone help lines.

        So generally governments will put those rules into place because there have been times and places when health care providers simply abandoned their jobs and created a situation like you described. One might argue that “violates” the workers rights, but those of us who take those jobs do so knowing full well what’s required. It’s kind of like joining the military – a person can choose to go AWOL, but there are consequences.

  • Firstgarden

    A very interesting article!!
    It’s rather long, so skim-read if you’d like.
    But definitely well worth the read.

    US Visas Held By 13,500 People In Three Ebola Countries

    Roughly 13,500 people from the Ebola-stricken countries of Sierra Leon, Guinea and Liberia have visas to visit the United States, according to federal data.

    The data doesn’t show how many of those people are already in the United States, but visitors from those countries should be excluded until they can show they’re free of Ebola, said Jessica Vaughan, policy director at the Center for Immigration Studies, a group that pushes for low-scale immigration.

    “It would be reasonable [for the president] to designate Ebola as a communicable disease of public health significance. That would enable the State Department to impose tighter restrictions on visitors” from countries with Ebola outbreaks, she said.

    Under current policies, only people with obvious Ebola symptoms are excluded by border officials. But a person can be infected with the disease, and not show any symptoms, for up to 21 days.

    On Sept. 30, federal officials announced that a Liberian had flown into the United States on Sept. 20, and had began to show obvious symptoms of the disease on the 24th. Disease-carriers can transmit the disease once they have symptoms.

    The Liberian is now being treated in a Dallas hospital, and federal officials are trying to contact everyone who was in contact with the Liberian. For example, several medical professionals have been kept under watch after briefly treating the Liberian on the 24th.

    Without the visa changes, the federal government is encouraging foreign government officials, professionals and wealthy people to flee Ebola countries to get free medical services in Texas and other states, she said.

    “People are already coming here for ‘birth tourism’” to ensure their children has U.S. citizenship, Vaughan said.

    “There’s no reason that people won’t come here for treatment that does’nt exist in their country,” she said, especially “if there is no effort to recoup [medical] costs or to prevent people coming.”

    “People pay attention to our border policy and try to take advantage of anything they see,” she said, citing the surge of 130,000 poor Central Americans who have crossed the southern border since last October.

    President Barack Obama has the authority to limit visits from diseased countries, she said.

    Namibia, Kenya and Zambia have already barred or restricted travelers from the three Ebola countries.

    In contrast, “where immigration and travel security matters are concerned, this [U.S.] administration has a history of trying to sweep potential security and health threats under the rug,” said Vaughan. ”They’re on the side of acting like there not a threat, there’s nothing to see here,” she said.

    The United States is already spending at least $750 million, and deploying roughly 3,000 U.S. troops to the region, to suppress the disease in the three countries.

    Vaughan’s estimate of 13,500 outstanding visas includes visas for people that have already arrived, and people that have arrived and left. The federal data does not show how many visas remain unused.

    The State Department has also granted visas to 195,000 Nigerians. That’s important, because Nigeria is very close to the infected countries. However, Nigerian officials and Western aid workers have blocked one Ebola outbreak in Nigeria, which infected 19 people.

    The State Department’s website shows how many visas have been awarded to people in various countries. The total numbers have to be reduced because visas typically expire after one year or two years.

    Section 212(a) of the Immigration and Naturalization Act allows the federal government to exclude visitors who may be carrying diseases.

    Visitors with “a physical or mental disorder and behavior associated with the disorder that may pose, or has posed, a threat to the property, safety, or welfare of the alien or others … is inadmissible,” says the law.

    There are ways to defeat 42 U.S.C. 264 and its regulations. In court. Unfortunately, what is left of due process will be cast aside in a nanosecond.

      That’s what you need. A coughing ebola patient in a court house over several weeks fighting quarantine and disease. Good luck.

      • DesertPaine

        You’re sure right about that. The post, and your observation, highlight that there is always a reason to give up rights today and intend to retrieve them tomorrow. Except that tomorrow never comes.

        Ebola may well be the issue that is a worthy exception. But on some other day in some next article, plenty of people will lobby for that issue to be more convenient to exempt for a day, too. That thinking, day after day, issue after issue, is what has gotten us in the bind that we’re in now.

  • Firstgarden

    This is rather personal, but I feel this something I can share here. If we did have a widespread epidemic, I believe I would be ready for it. I’m not happy with this world, and I very much look forward to the next world.. the better place wherein dwells righteousness, peace and joy. To be absent from this body is to be present with the Lord.

    It’s not that I have a death wish. I plan on living a long time and am working hard on my health – diet, exercise and no drinking.

    But, in spite of any prepping for the prospect of disaster, if I were to contract the virus and was facing death, I would really be at peace with it.

    Perhaps I’d feel differently if I had a great deal of this world’s goods and stood to lose a lot. But still, my value system remains the same – being the Eternal value system as opposed to the temporal value system.

    I know this could be difficult for some to understand, and some of it may be my own quirk of character.. the odyssey I have walked through. Being a former chemical searcher, if you will, in the 60s, the mind drugs were my weakness. From there, I aspired to be a monk in the SRF Order (Self-Realization Fellowship with Paramansa Yogananda), seeking to attain “cosmic consciousness” and get off the “karmic wheel.”

    The Eightfold Noble Path Of Buddha was interesting, and the Buddhist state of desirelessness sounded appealing. Unfortunately, the desire for desirelessness is still a desire.

    The Rosicrucian Order (based on the Ancient Mystery Schools Of Eqypt) also was appealing, but rang hollow in their culty, secret society obsessed with power.

    Metaphysics and Mind Sciences seemed to offer so many answers, but were but a set of impersonal principles leaving one bereft of any kind of personal God.

    So many paths were but one more form of self-empowerment to accomplish one’s own will, and be one’s own “god”. It offends our sense of “godhood” when Messiah says things like,

The world is full of people who are their own “gods”, each an authority unto themselves, with existential thought, “situational ethics’ and relativity as their supreme rule. No absolutes!! Would that be absolutely?

    You don’t have to agree. We can disagree disagreeably. Search things out for yourself. I can only ask that you love Truth above all things. Even if it blows your whole trip, challenges everything you believe, and dethrones your ego. This has happened to me many times. “Being right” all the time is not important to me, if it rips me off of truth.

    All this to say, I really don’t give a rip whether I stay or go. Except for how I may benefit others. Blessings to all.

        I apologize for butting in but dope is bad. It gives one a sense of well being and fearlessness with no worries – a real sense of comfort and joy. But GOD considers Comfort And Joy to be his business only. “I will send you the Comforter (The Holy Spirit)” – to make this difficult life in this often times very scary and dangerous place bearable. Weed is God’s competition – it must be evil by definition. I know from first hand knowledge.

          The wine supply ran out during the festivities, and Jesus’ mother came to him with the problem.

          “I can’t help you now,” he said. “It isn’t yet my time for miracles.”

          But his mother told the servants, “Do whatever he tells you to.”

          Six stone waterpots were standing there; they were used for Jewish ceremonial purposes and held perhaps twenty to thirty gallons each.

          Then Jesus told the servants to fill them to the brim with water.

          When this was done he said, “Dip some out and take it to the master of ceremonies.”

          When the master of ceremonies tasted the water that was now wine, not knowing where it had come from

          No need for apologies, Lennie.
          Much of what you say is true.
          If I may split a hair here, weed is not intrinsically bad. God created the vegetable kingdom for all kinds of uses – food, shelter (wood), medicine, etc.

          Of course, “medical marijuana” in its current day usage is way overblown.
          It’s medical application has been a smoke screen more than anything else. (Pun intended.)

          The truth is, drugs and alcohol, or any particulate matter is not evil in and of itself. It is a TOOL of evil, ofttimes, and for that reason should be scrutinized.
          Kind regards.

            Drugs/Alcohol = Pharmakeia.

          • Firstgarden




            feminine noun

            Root Word (Etymology)

            From φαρμακεύς (G5332)Dictionary Aids

            Vine’s Expository Dictionary:

            Outline of Biblical Usage

            1) the use or the administering of drugs

            2) poisoning

            3) sorcery, magical arts, often found in connection with idolatry and fostered by it


            Is ALL drug usage Witchcraft?

            Over-the-counter drugs?


            Did Paul encourage Timothy to witchcraft by recommending “a little wine for his stomach”?

            Did Jesus turn water into Pharmakeia?

            How rigid or legal are we to take the word “Pharmakeia” in its application?

            To take an ABSOLUTE and make it relative – is liberalism.

            To take a RELATIVE matter and make it absolute – is legalism.

            Are all we, who occasionally take Ibuprofen, witches & warlocks?

            Or is more a matter of the heart? For man looks on outward appearances, but God judges the intents and motives of the heart.

          • corcorecorey

            No. Not all drugs can be categorized into Pharmakeia. Even though God is called ‘Our Great Physician, or Our Great Healer,’ sometimes an antibiotic is needed – sometimes you may have caught a bad bug. And, no. Jesus and other people of the Bible preached about consuming wine – is that pharmakeia? Not necessarily. When used in over-abundance, it can be. I should’ve clarified what I meant by the post instead of just posting. We are to remain sober, and vigilant. I was meaning more of an ‘influenced’ state off mind – when you don’t have those mental restraints, it is fair game for satan and his minions. You are vulnerable to attacks.

      I have never done drugs nor do I ever intend to do drugs no matter what.
      The only religion that even comes close to how I believe is Christianity.
      I think they are mistaken in a number of things concerning the after-life.
      But that is personal opinion.
      So is my belief in Christianity as a book of instructions on how to be happy in life.
      Basically the scriptures when translated correctly are right.
      Jesus Christ will come back. He appears to be one of the immortals. He is under the direct control of God. I refer to the God as described in the Bible. The Alpha and Omega, both the beginning and the end of the Universe as we know it.
      All three of the entities that make up the trinity are in agreement. I look at it as three minds networked together. God the father is in charge of everything. The other two entities follow God in everything. God does what is right for God. We often do not see that. Under God, everything has some ultimate purpose including death.
      When three Christians pray to Jesus, sometimes miracles occur. Mountains move.
      Under most circumstances, if you step off a step, you will fall. If you disobey the physical laws of the universe you will pay the penalty of doing so.

      Jesus disobeyed many physical laws of the Universe. Jesus is a god. We, on the other hand are mortal human beings. Without Jesus to help, none of the physical laws disobeyed will be changed.
      He attempted to get Peter to walk on water. It did not work. Jesus can walk on water all he wants.
      My point is act as if everything depends on you, pray like everything depends on Jesus.

      Sometimes, that makes the difference between success and failure. Jesus, through his father, God, does sometimes intercede.
      I personally think that Ebola will ravage the entire Muslim world. Why? Because they are cursed. They are cursed by the decision to kill Christians. But that is my personal opinion. I have no evidence that this is so except that it is happening.

      Disease is one of the four horsemen.
      They have killed Christ’s sheep. Now they will have to pay the price of their disrespect.

      Revenge is mine says the Lord. Well that revenge is likely to be very terrible to behold.
      ISIS has asked: Where is your Christ? We are killing and raping your women? Where is Christ to protect you?
      It doesn’t work that way. But those Christians slain are now with Jesus. And when you anger Jesus look out!
      I have seen this quiet behind the scenes thing happen a number of times in my lifetime.
      There was a reason that their prophet warned them to leave Christians alone.

      • Firstgarden

        “The only religion that even comes close to how I believe is Christianity.
        I think they are mistaken in a number of things concerning the after-life. But that is personal opinion.”

        I always liked your posts, John. They are well thought out. If it is, for instance, the doctrine of hell that you are referring to, I would concur that that is the most difficult doctrine of all. I would be considered a heretic by some Christians for some of my views. Yet, we find ourselves lumped in together with everyone else as “You Christians are all the same.”

        For me, some things are on the shelf awaiting further data. I take holy writ very seriously. Yet, I believe in the goodness and love of God, Who is not wishing that any perish, but that all come to repentance. I think He is a collector of hearts, more than a collector of fine doctrinal distinctions.

        If it all was about our exegetical exactitude and homiletical perfection, I’d be putting my trust in that more than in Him.

        “Jesus Christ will come back. He appears to be one of the immortals.”

        He is the character and nature of God stamped in human flesh, according to Hebrews. He is the the incarnation of Eternal Jehovah God. He and His Father are One. Not one and the same, but One.

        Some of what you said sounds a bit 3rd century Arian or Watchtower. But I doubt that you’re a part of that. Christ is indeed divinity, not just one dispenser for His time. The scriptures overwhelmingly attest to this. Now to the King Eternal—the immortal, invisible, and only God—be honor and glory forever and ever! Amen.

        “I personally think that Ebola will ravage the entire Muslim world. Why? Because they are cursed. They are cursed by the decision to kill Christians. But that is my personal opinion. I have no evidence that this is so except that it is happening. Disease is one of the four horsemen. They have killed Christ’s sheep. Now they will have to pay the price of their disrespect.”

        You may very well be right. But God’s timetable is not ours. The way we connect the dots don’t always give us an accurate picture, especially when, to our finite minds, so many pieces of the puzzle are missing. Time will tell.

        God loves the Muslims too. I think lots of them will be in heaven. Hindus, Jews and Buddhists, too. All kinds. And Christians might ask: “How did YOU get here??” And they’ll answer, “The same way you did.. through Messiah.
        As the old hymn said,

        Some through the fire
        Some through the flood
        Some through Great Trial..
        But ALL through the blood

    • Firstgarden

      A little clarification – I was describing the 60s and the early 70s. Certainly not my present lifestyle, which is very sober indeed. The main point was this:

      After being spoon-fed from youth Edgar Cayce, Swami Vivekananda, Ernest Holmes, Emmet Fox, Unity School of Reincarnation;
      after having multiple psychotropic experiences in young life, and ardently pursuing truth across a broad gamut of spiritual prospects;
      after trying to get off Hinduism’s “karmic wheel” of “cyclic rebirth”,
      and after Christ spoke of His Kingdom as not of this world and that we are but pilgrims passing through…
      I’m not going to be highly attached to a temporal world that is getting worse and worse, not “collectively enlightened”, as some like to say.

      There are many ways my comments (above) could be misunderstood, and I accept that. Living by modest means is okay by me. One could live in a tent and off wild edibles if it came down to it. But, no matter how well prepared you are, there are simply no guarantees in this fleeting life, outwardly speaking. Inwardly, one could enjoy great inner peace that is not dependent on outward circumstances. It is the peace that surpasses understanding.

      Of course, prepare. Do what you must. But remember, at the end of the day, and the end of the life, you take nothing with you. Nothing. Except for one thing…

      How you treated others.

      “Blessed are the merciful, for they are the ones who shall receive mercy.”

      Blessings to all.

      How sad that all you can think of is yourself and not the well being of others. Not at all Christian of you, only concerned with your own peace. If you’re not a saved reborn water baptized Christian you’ll be finding yourself in eternal hell where there is no peace without Jesus.

    is the only vaccine that will cure this deadly disease. We may
    boast of anything that we have achieved, but these achievements will pale into insignificance in the current
    context. Perhaps, all of us without exception have no idea
    about the power of this spiritual path designed by God
    to ward off all pains and problems of humanity that
    no democracy in the world howsoever powerful can
    eradicate now or ever!
    This is the only choice we have now if survival is our strong

      God calls on His believers to endure the hardships and imperfections of themselves and others in this life- as they abide in the truth of Jesus Christ…. the pneumatic Spirit.

      All of creation groans, eagerly waiting the glorious revelation of the children of God.

      They, having their sins forgiven and regenerated by the Spirit….there is no easy way out for any Christian this side of heaven, but victorious overcomers Christians they’ll be for sure.

      God has predestined ‘good works’ for us to walk in…. that is, if you have received Jesus the Chrsit…. therefore

      walk in Him.

      Abide in Him and you will be spritually and practically groomed and fruitful now and forever.

        Colossians 2:4-12
        Living Bible (TLB)

        I am saying this because I am afraid that someone may fool you with smooth talk.

        For though I am far away from you my heart is with you, happy because you are getting along so well, happy because of your strong faith in Christ.

        And now just as you trusted Christ to save you, trust him, too, for each day’s problems; live in vital union with him.

        Let your roots grow down into him and draw up nourishment from him.

        See that you go on growing in the Lord and become strong and vigorous in the truth you were taught.

        Let your lives overflow with joy and thanksgiving for all he has done.

        Don’t let others spoil your faith and joy with their philosophies, their wrong and shallow answers built on men’s thoughts and ideas, instead of on what Christ has said.

        For in Christ there is all of God in a human body; so you have everything when you have Christ and you are filled with God through your union with Christ.

        He is the highest Ruler, with authority over every other power.

        When you came to Christ, he set you free from your evil desires, not by a bodily operation of circumcision but by a spiritual operation, the baptism of your souls.

        For in baptism you see how your old, evil nature died with him and was buried with him; and then you came up out of death with him into a new life because you trusted the Word of the mighty God who raised Christ from the dead.

    I just watched the interview that Anderson Cooper did with the girlfriend of the ebola patient. There was something I thought was very interesting. On the one hand, she seemed so upset that nobody has brought them any food. But then later in the interview she said she wanted the CDC to just leave them alone. Well… you can’t have both. There is a lesson there– be self-sufficient. Don’t rely on any government agency to provide you with anything during a crisis. If you are not prepared already, get prepared! Get enough food and supplies to last you AT LEAST a month in case anything like that happens to you. We tend to think nothing like that will ever happen to us, but it is possible! And what’s the worst case scenario if you buy a month’s worth of supplies and nothing happens? You don’t have to go to the store for a month. That’s a pretty sweet worst-case scenario if you ask me.

    You are right. Suspects should be put into solitary confinement (quarantine) until their viral load is no threat anymore to their surroundings.

    A responsible government would have already sealed the borders, cancelled all flights from the hot zone and required quarantine of anyone coming from the hot zone. This has not happened. Why has it not happened? Answer, certain elements of the government want a pandemic so they can put selected members of the population into FEMA camps. Ask Japanese Americans of a certain age how this works.

    “During an outbreak, the government can force you to remain isolated in your own home, or the government may forcibly take you to a treatment
    facility, a tent city, a sports stadium, an old military base or a camp. You would not have any choice in the matter. And you would be forced to endure any medical procedure mandated by the government. That includes shots, vaccines and the drawing of blood. During such a scenario, you can scream about your “rights” all that you want, but it won’t do any good.”

    So, it’s pretty much business-as-usual for my family and I. They’re already doing this to us.

      The virus is a GMO, owned and patented by the US GOVT. The U.S. government patented Ebola in 2010 and now claims intellectual property ownership over all Ebola variants. That patent number is CA2741523A1.

      It seems to me, its very developers would also have the antidote, reserved for the elite.

    What about the right to work? Would that mess up the new fantastic unbelievable unemployment rate that just dropped below 6%?

  • DJohn1

    When it is your loved ones in trouble tell me about rights.
    I do suggest extraordinary rules need to be put in place to handle the economic ramifications of a plague.
    I think the quarantined should be able to obtain food for themselves. Getting the food to them is a challenge.
    I think their jobs should be kept in reserve for them while they are in danger to themselves and others.
    I think all bills should be put on hold until the disease is contained. No back bills to pay.
    With that said, that takes leadership on the part of the Congress. I think they should be in full session so that they are the first to go.They do seem to have better survival instincts than that so I doubt that will happen.
    Our Liar in Charge needs to stop lying and start acting as head of our country to contain this disease. Political correctness be damned. We need a leader to minimize the damage to the country and that means executive(dictator) type orders to contain the disease.
    Hopefully, it can be contained. That means we can go back to normal. But that might be a couple of years down the road.
    We have to close our borders. End of story.
    If you are caught outside our borders go to an embassy for temporary housing.
    Military law? I say we need military law during this crisis.
    That means bringing the entire medical facilities of all the bases in the country need to be put into use to contain any epidemic that occurs.
    Economics? We need to compensate anyone infected with aid. That is to keep the entire country’s economic system from collapsing.
    I suggest we start with charity at home. That means cut all foreign aid everywhere until the emergency is over.
    Use the money here to help our own citizens.
    ‘When EBOLA does hit, it means we have to have strong leadership. It also means when it is over with, that leadership must surrender the reigns of government with elections. We are not a dictatorship. Bringing things back to how they were before the epidemic occurred.
    Some things need to change. But let us allow our legislators the chance to make those changes by elected officials.
    This is basically a war. It is a war that can take all of your loved ones as casualties if it is not handled before it becomes a really big catastrophe.
    That is going to take a lot of thinking outside the box. It means having people in charge with a touch of intelligence.
    Unfortunately, I do not see that leadership in the current batch we have in our elected officials. Hopefully someone will step forward and take the reins of government during this crisis.

  • Carmencita

    That is exactly why Obama created this ‘panic’ and why he enabled the spread of the virus into this country. With a pandemic in full swing, he does NOT have to vacate office in 2016, he does NOT have to follow the constitution and will use this as an excuse to ignore our gun rights, our privacy rights, and our property rights. Wake up America, this man and his liberal supporters are truly evil and will stop at nothing, not even the intentional spread of a deadly virus, to give them a better stranglehold on this country. The Secret Service can do a GREAT service to this country by removing this usurper. I am sure they would be forgiven for past security breaches if they did so!

  • Carmencita

    Just remember . . . when the pandemic comes and we are living off of what we have carefully stored, all the ones that will be wanting to take what we have worked hard for will ALL be OBAMA SUPPORTERS.

This is a pandemic created by the Democrat Party to effectively prevent the return of the House and Senate and Presidency to the Republicans.

    (NaturalNews) All the disinformation being spread about Ebola by the U.S. government and the complicit mass media will unfortunately make the Ebola pandemic far worse. That’s because the public isn’t being told the truth about how Ebola spreads and how individuals can help prevent transmission of the disease.

    At every level of media and government, protecting the financial interests of drug companies appears to be far more important than protecting public health. So people aren’t told the truth about how Ebola spreads and how they can increase their ability to survive a global pandemic.

    Here are five of the biggest lies being spread about Ebola right now. Once you’ve reviewed the lies, learn the truth at BioDefense dot com.

    Lie #1) Ebola won’t ever come to the United States

    This lie was shattered just this week when the CDC confirmed Ebola in a hospital patient in Dallas, Texas.

    Not only has Ebola already spread to America, but a top scientist who used to work for the FDA now says this is only the beginning and that Ebola will spread in America.

    As printed in The Extinction Protocol:

    “…it appears several people were exposed before the individual was placed in isolation, and it is quite possible that one or more of his contacts will be infected,” he added. What’s more, he conceded that it was “only a matter of time” that the swift-killing African virus arrived in the U.S.

    Lie #2) Ebola is only spread via direct contact with body fluids

    This outrageous medical lie may soon cost the lives of millions of innocent people. In truth, Ebola can spread through the air over short distances via aerosols – airborne particles.

    Ebola can also spread via contaminated surfaces. When an infected patient makes contact with a surface such as a doorknob or ATM keypad, they may leave behind the Ebola virus which survives for many minutes or hours in the open, depending on environmental conditions (temperature, humidity, etc.) Another person who touches the same surface may then become instantly infected by simply touching their own eyes, nose or mouth.

    The ability of Ebola to spread via contaminated surfaces is why victims in Africa have become infected by riding in taxi cabs. This also means any form of public transportation — airplanes, ambulances, subways — may harbor the virus and accelerate the spread of an outbreak.

    Like all viruses, Ebola is destroyed by sunlight. But it can remain viable for a surprisingly long time in environments where sunlight never reaches — such as underground subways, which are the perfect breeding grounds for viral transmission.

    Lie #3) Don’t worry: Health authorities have everything under control

    The overarching lie about Ebola that’s being repeated by the U.S. government is “Don’t worry, we have it under control!”

    Of course, the fact that an infected Ebola victim just flew right into the country with Ebola, then walked around the city of Dallas for 10 days while carrying Ebola, utterly belies the false promises of health authorities who claim to have things under control.

    In truth, Ebola is completely out of control which is precisely why its sudden appearance in a Dallas hospital surprised nearly everyone. The sobering fact of the matter is that despite all the money being spent on “homeland security,” DHS has no way to stop Ebola from walking right into the USA, including on foot from our wide open southern border.

    If the U.S. government has everything under control, then why did the government just purchase 160,000 Ebola hazmat suits? Why did Obama just recently sign an executive order authorizing the forced government quarantine of anyone showing symptoms of infectious disease?

    While the public can be easily lied to and told everything is under control, behind closed doors at the highest levels of government, everybody knows this pandemic could rapidly become a global killer that no one can stop.

    Lie #4) The only defense against Ebola is a vaccine or a pharmaceutical drug

    This lie may get millions of people killed if the Ebola outbreak gets worse. In a desperate bid to make sure Ebola generates billions of dollars in profits for vaccine makers and pharmaceutical companies, the CDC, FDA and even the FTC routinely censor truthful information about natural treatments that might hold promise (such as colloidal silver).

    Companies that offer extremely beneficial essential oils and colloidal silver products have already been threatened with criminal arrest and prosecution by the FDA. The mainstream media remains complicit in the systematic oppression of natural cures, printing the FDA’s propaganda while completely avoiding any balanced reporting that might highlight the extraordinary anti-viral capabilities of many medicinal herbs as I’ve described in Episode Six of Pandemic Preparedness.

    If we really want to stop the spread of this viral pandemic right now, both government and the media should be urging citizens to boost their immune defenses by consuming more nutritious foods, herbal spices, superfoods and anti-viral plants (which include peppermint, basil, rosemary, cinnamon and oregano, just to name a few).

    Everyone should be immediately urged to make sure they have sufficient vitamin D circulating in their blood, and those who have low vitamin D — which includes just about everyone in America today — should be urged to take vitamin D supplements.

    But instead of urging the public to enhance their immune function and boost their natural defenses against Ebola, everyone is ridiculously told to “wash your hands” and wait around for a drug company to introduce an Ebola vaccine.

    Lie #5) Ebola came out of nowhere and was a random fluke of nature

    The modern-day version of Ebola that’s so aggressively circulating today may actually be a bioengineered virus, according to one scientist who wrote a front-page story in Liberia’s largest newspaper.

    “Ebola is a genetically modified organism (GMO),” declared Dr. Cyril Broderick, Professor of Plant Pathology, in a front-page story published in the Liberian Observer. [2]

    He goes on to explain:

    [Horowitz] confirmed the existence of an American Military-Medical-Industry that conducts biological weapons tests under the guise of administering vaccinations to control diseases and improve the health of “black Africans overseas.”

    Further supporting this genetic engineering research claim, the U.S. government patented Ebola in 2010 and now claims intellectual property ownership over all Ebola variants. That patent number is CA2741523A1, viewable at this link.

    Read more about the patenting of Ebola and control over its research in this Natural News article.

    This means the U.S. government claims all control over Ebola research, too, because any research project involving replication of the virus would violate the government’s patent.

    In fact, the vastly improved transmission ability of the Ebola strain currently circulating (compared to previous outbreaks in years past) has many people convinced this strain is a “weaponized” variant which either broke through containment protocols at government labs or was intentionally deployed as a population control weapon.

    Several U.S. scientists have openly called for global depopulation using genetically engineered bioweapons such as Ebola. Dr. Eric Pianka of the University of Texas at Austin reportedly advocated the use of Ebola to wipe out 90% of the human population, according to Life Site News. [3]

    It appears he may soon get his wish. If the current Ebola explosion continues, the global population may be in serious jeopardy and many millions could die.

      Fantastic info posted. We would all be clueless & kept in the dark without alternative media & public comments. MSM never fully, accurately presents info on anything. Tks. for an informative post. Am saving & passing it on.

    • It’s kind of interesting and indicative of the sheeple consciousness out there as well as here on Michael’s blog: A person call FristGardener post some dribble about nothing and s/he gets 21 up votes, while your very important post from Natural News gets only 4!

      Thanks for posting this very imporant information. One more natural way to deal with Ebola2 is something called MMS or Miracle Mineral Supplement (discovered by Jim Humble). Search for it online. It is very cheap and extremely effective in killing these deadly viruses and bacterial inside the human body naturally. It is able to cure, yes cure, a patient with malaria (currently not curable with conventional meds) in just 4 hours!

    I personally do not believe this is going to spread. We might see a few isolated cases, but no pandemic. Let’s worry about the radical Islamic elements…not Ebola.

    • Janice

      Maybe not, but can ISIS/ISSEL kill exponentially & replicate death tolls like Ebola? An expanding Islamic caliphate is no match for this virus. They’d better pray that none of the 2 million Hajjh travelers to Saudia Arabia have this virus. Despite banning Muslims from African countries attending…the risks are high that this 5 day celebration is the perfect environment for major global Ebola transmissions. Ebola could decimate this radical Islamic movement w/o our involvement.

          1976 was the first case found in the Congo, humans eating bush meat, gorillas, monkeys and chimpanzees, or if they handled caucuses of those primates. It is a combination of different viruses.

    Everything I said earlier need reiteration. God is changing
    the world from materialism to spiritualism of meditation.
    Every citizen of this world ha s to meditate if the survival is
    the strong desire.
    Quoting from any scripture will not help us now.
    Rather than harping on what will not help us, we need to
    wake up soon to embrace our soul through the process
    of meditation as is the dictum of God and pronounced
    to many authors.
    Already residents of Dallas are nervous, and fear that
    will grip everyone in a country will lead to blood pressure,
    and as we all know, blood pressure is the silent killer!.
    Antidote to fear is meditation – the only medicine,.
    Already eight solders in Liberia are infected with Ebola
    and they are quarantined. God and each one of us are not
    different We are ONE but to understand that, we need
    to practice meditation, divine designed tool to make the
    planet of earth heavenly. Individuals as well as democracies have failed to bring peace in the world despite the precious
    gift of mind that each one of us is endowed with.
    We are not able to conceive now how this disease will
    create chaos in America. What we witness in West
    Africa is nothing compared to what we will witness in
    America if it is not contained through the magical power
    of the mind. This disease will test our ability that we boast of. All our hypotheses will go awry as far as this disease is
    concerned. . Human mind has a
    limitation to comprehend the cosmic communication that
    is non-stop all over the world. Let us not take refuge in
    our own comforting expressions without comprehending the
    cosmic agenda to transform the world topsy-turvy.

    Dear Michael,

    Sexual energy of man is not for sexual pleasure alone. The

    powerful nature of this energy is not known to 99.0 percent

    of men around the world. It has the power to keep all

    disease away providing it has channelized vertically through

    deep inhalation daily towards upper chakras in our body.

    Without this energy meditation will not be effective.

    Meditation observed by one and all as a dictum of the

    Universe will cause disappearance of pharmaceutical

    industry . Mind remains calm under all explosive circumstances. Meditation takes away the sexual desire and

    all negative emotions. Please read below the process and

    perquisites for meditation:. .

    What is the process for meditation?

    Where: Meditation can be done in any place except in the

    bathroom. The beginners initially need to make the surroundings

    noise-free, switching off all noise-producing devices. The discipline to be silent by the other inmates of the house is a must.

    When: The first session of meditation should begin and end before

    sunrise. This is another discipline that everyone has to adhere to.

    It is not necessary that one has to take bath before beginning

    meditation. Symbol on the forehead is an option, but not compulsory. Subsequent meditation sessions can be any time, preferably when the stomach is empty.

    How: Sit cross-legged on a raised wooden platform or on the bed

    facing east. Close your eyes and focus through closed eyes on the

    point between two eyebrows..

    It is the focus on the third eye that brings gradual change. While

    focusing on this point, initially all thoughts will jam your mind; don’t

    worry. Drive them away and try to focus two minutes or three minutes initially. To keep the mind away from all thoughts will take weeks or even months depending on your practice. Focus is the key in the whole process. It is the focus that will make your mind blank -thoughtless! When you attain the level of blankness of your mind, you move away from conscious mind to super-conscious and supra-conscious minds where we meet the Creator! Conscious mind triggered all torments and turmoil. Blankness of the mind for a while, half a day or throughout the day will bring a dramatic change in you.

    As meditation is something to do with the mind, we

    don’t need to be unduly careful about what we need to wear

    how flowing our beard or hair has to be, and how to differentiate

    ourselves from the crowd!

    Who: Everyone has to embark on this path. This dictum of the

    Universe is universal. Every creed and caste have to obey

    this dictum, regardless of what they do and where they are!

    If obedience is not the thought, the soul has the prerogative

    to plan the next course of action !

    What: is meditation? Meditation is to see the perfection in

    us. It is to measure the immeasurable; it is to mine the mine

    that has no depth; it is to imbue us with love whose meaning

    we did not know; it is to be Creator-like to create what we could

    not create; it is to see the love in us that sees no struggle; it

    is the love that rewards us richly in many ways; it is the love

    that makes us see love in everyone and in everything; it is the

    love that is a balm as well as a boon; and it is the love that sees

    no bottleneck or boundary!

    Why: The new age that we will usher into is our own creation.

    We inspired God through our ineptness and inertia to do what

    we ought to have done on our own! Following a culture failed

    us to fathom our fathomless richness. Despite emergence of

    messengers of God that we keep boasting of, lack of learning

    to recognize the Kingdom of God in each one of us has led to

    the change now – though a wrenching one! “Regret” is not the’

    word we can repeat today, but recognizing Him and reaching

    Him remain the survival route.

    This opportunity of transformation is golden. This opportunity

    of transforming others through guidance is God-blessed.

    Transforming others through guidance is the only charity we

    can do today, and it is the only charity that is needed.

    Daily meditation too has pre-requisites , and missing them will lead to frustration and frustration will make you give up.

    First pre-requisite: For all men, celibacy is the first step as moderation is hard to maintain. Significance of celibacy can hardly be known unless practiced for at least five years. Being a celibate is vital for the physique,mind and soul! It is the energy, the lynchpin for his spiritual odyssey, that catapults him from where he is today to where he should be as per the dictum of the Universe. The other two pre- requisites outlined below are of no use if celibacy is not resorted to.

    Second Pre-requisite: Before beginning early morning meditation

    when the stomach is empty, deep inhalation in quick succession 30 times will raise the energy towards energy centers also called Chakras. The deep inhalation has to be through both the nostrils. While doing this, one should observe that there is no movement of upper part of the body from ribs.

    (This is for MEN only!)

    Third Pre-requisite: Daily physical exercise is a

    must for at least 15 minutes to 30 minutes. One can choose the

    exercise according to one`s age. Women need to observe the first

    pre-requisite and do the meditation daily, first one being before

    sunrise. Monthly cycle need not interfere with daily meditation,

    as soul, the Creator or God, is already residing in them. What is

    more important for both men and women is the focus on the point

    just above the two eyebrows, where one normally puts vermillion.

    Dear Michael,

    Please read this as swell.

    Dear Friends, Thurs 4th Sept 2014 1300 hrs

    Good Afternoon!

    270/14 The God We don’t Know!

    Should you choose the experience of communion with God,

    you will finally know peace, and joy unbounded and love

    fully expressed and full freedom – God

    1. We can expatiate eloquently on the existence of God right

    from conception stage to our death and beyond, His role in our

    life, His power, the power He delegates to us, His ubiquity etc .

    If we pose a question “who am I”, the answer is always ” I am

    the God ” camouflaged in a body! Without God in each one of us

    our limbs wont move nor can we perform any activity. Yet, we

    have not been brought up nor have we educated ourselves well

    to believe this. Today as a race we are caught up between

    illusion and reality. while living in illusion, acceptance of reality

    is a far cry! .

    2. When God is in each one of us we are still going to many

    places in search of God to propitiate for all the problems. When

    He has made our creation simple, we always tried to complicate.

    Complication is our handiwork and simplicity is His creation. .Are

    we capable to untangle the web of complication? We have come

    a long way with all our academic qualification and deep-rooted

    thoughts that it will be difficult for us to eschew complication and

    embrace simplicity!

    3. Of all the messengers of God, Ramana Maharshi espoused

    the existence of God in each one of us. His teachings in book

    form, very relevant in today`s globe-changing events by God,

    are not drawing the attention of people. We can still uphold

    our current belief that God is in the worshipping place until

    events make us think seriously and act quickly. Quickness

    might have helped us anywhere but not with God. When

    events overwhelm us, fear will course through our veins as

    fear is the outcome of addiction to sexual bliss, if we know it!

    4. If we don’t know who God is, we will not know what Ebola

    is. How nightmarish this disease alone is going to be is beyond

    the comprehension of medical professionals. Disease will lead to

    food shortage and people will die not only of disease but also of

    starvation. How ignorant we are of God`s actions and how our continued ignorance of God in us will make this disease far deadlier than solar flares hitting the earth! When we could not understand women as God in flesh and blood form, how can we understand God in each one of us. Lack of understanding now is not going to be an excuse!

    Dear Michael,

    Please read this as well.

    Dear Friends, Thurs 11th Sept 2014 0700 hrs

    Good Morning!

    278/14 Serene And Simple Living!

    You must begin with meditation and let

    everything else follow – OSHO

    1. Daily actions of God demonstrating His impregnable

    power, though ignored now, are a clear roadmap towards

    the goal He will lead us to. The goal will take us to only one

    “ism” burying deeply all other “isms” we embraced and espoused.

    No democracy in the world could have envisioned and initiated

    steps towards this only one “ism” that is proven to be the elixir of

    every individual! This “ism” – spiritualism , is a great built-in design

    to bring an about-face in our living!

    2. We resorted to medicines and methods to calm us and correct

    the situations. We embraced theories and eschewed actions that

    demonstrate the pitfalls of theories. We recognized degrees and

    diplomas but we could not recognize the rare design of our creation.

    We understood the ability of aliens undermining our own . Every

    race on this earth had a common rage to recognize the sexual power

    that does not demand any qualification. This rage spread faster than

    any knowledge that we ought to have acquired. But we did not know

    that this rage was a road to ruin.

    3. But meditation , as an “ism”, is the grandest built-in design to outwit

    every design we conceived and contrived to manipulate and mesmerize.

    For every design and duplicity laws helped us because laws had loopholes.

    What is admirable and astonishing in meditation is that it is self-regulated

    in action and approach, in comforts and communication, in desires and

    digestion, in demonstration and dress, in habits and health and in sacrifice

    and sleep! Meditation is the greatest medicine of all medicines mankind

    has ever invented. It is the grandest design to divine the divinity in us

    to be divinely now and ever!

    4. Meditation fosters serene and simple living. Meditation creates

    abundance, cause avoidance of wastage, cause us to cast off ostentatiousness, meets the needs, and does not create an

    embarrassment of riches. What is obtained with great efforts in

    materialism is obtained effortlessly in spiritualism of meditation!

    Everything outlined above is automatic but gradual! Attachment

    caused avariciousness but detachment that meditation gives birth

    to will drain all desires. Indulgence in three-course meals three times

    day will vanish automatically giving room for one good meal a day!
