I want to respond to your post, but I can assure you that I can't
answer your questons--that's a certain! : )

This is just as well, because I don't know if I really wanted to go
into more discussion on Icke--I needed a break! : ) I can see in
your post here that you have been thinking a lot which is good. It's
funny how one can see something one way, and then after some new
thought, see it another. Ever shifting and normal way to look at
life and what is going on. I'm not certain if or when we ever get it
all figured out.

of spiritual teachings. I don't think that is a bad thing--more
people should be into the spiritual. It is the most important aspect
of our life.

believe. Many people were not troubled by the Darwin/Harold event
and just kept believing. Your intuitive senses were aware of the red
flags here, it seems. You still wanted to believe because the belief
had helped to balance you, and perhaps you feared going back to
square one if you let go of the belief.

people do not understand what their real right are, or the lack of
rights! How government works, in other words.

are able to decipher and learn. If you are an honest individual,
which I think you are, you should be able to trust your own beliefs--
until they are no longer valid for you, that is. You don't need
others to tell you what to think. Will you make mistakes or be
mistaken? Of course, but you will be on the right course in finding
the spiritual truths you are looking for. So, what is out there for
you to believe in--it's you!

you. I hope your frustration and fatigue are short-lived. I do know
that laughter and fun is good therapy, especially when one is
feeling down. Funny movies, joyful times with friends and family.
And then there are people here open to discussion! : )
Sorry I can't offer more than this. Your question, even though a
good one, is difficult! I like your posts!
