The transparency of the 2000s is coming from within ourselves. The more deeply we are able to FEEL, the easier it is to see through the ruses and illusions that hold this system together. As a result, those parts of the system that need secrecy in order to operate are being exposed and falling apart. The pain and chaos in Ferguson, Missouri (and, frankly, throughout the world), is also an opportunity to prevent a painful history from repeating itself yet again.
On Missouri’s flag are the words: Salus populi suprema lex esto, Latin for “Let the good of the people be the supreme law.” Also on Missouri’s flag is the phrase: “United we stand, divided we fall”. The flag is dated MDCCCXX. That’s 1820 – the 11 global year, when on March 3 (3+3=6), ‘The Missouri Compromise‘ was reached between pro-slavery and anti-slavery factions.
The Missouri flag, and the history associated with it, is a rich reflection of what needs to be learned in the United States – the land of freedom and diversity. If the USA can pull itself together – in unity – the most amazing levels of peace and prosperity could be experienced by all. But if there is no UNITY in the UNITED STATES, then the USA loses its meaning and with it, its power. One of the greatest divides in this relatively new country, one of its deepest and most open sores, is based on the misguided idea that one group of people is superior to another. The roots of racism in America are located in the deep south, of which Missouri is undeniably a part. We must learn from history or forever repeat it.

In my original article about the killing of Michael Brown, WEEK 33 AND THE IMPACT OF FERGUSON, the focus on the number 6 is intense, and remains prominent as this sad and maddening story continues to unfold. Not only was the grand jury decision announced on the 24th day of this 11th month, (2+4=6), but also a 6 global day which means that all the numbers in this date add up to 6. (11+2+4+2+0+1+4=2+4=6). The unfairness of the procedure on which this ‘decision’ was based, and the ineffectiveness of the judicial system is glaringly obvious.
Before reading that article, it will be helpful to understand what 6 is all about:
6 represents JUDGMENT, JUSTICE, BALANCE, and EXTREMES (and the balance is shifting quite wildly now).
6 is also the number of RESPONSIBILITY, PROBLEM SOLVING, and REINVENTING ONESELF.
6 represents FAMILY, HOME, CHILDREN, PARENTS, UNITY, NEIGHBORHOOD, COMMUNITY, SAFETY, and LOVE.
6 = EDUCATION, HEALING, INSTITUTIONS, (courts, schools, hospitals, prisons, police, etc.)
6 is the number of PATERNITY, PATRIARCHY, AUSTERITY, TRADITION, THE ESTABLISHMENT.
6 represents SECURITY, CONTROL, ENFORCEMENT, DOMINATION, and OPPRESSION.
The obvious tension-building by Missouri officials demonstrated how easily events can be manipulated by controlling the emotions of a population. It illustrates how illusions are manufactured, and why we must become more aware of just how powerful emotion (feminine energy) is. Emotion is the human WILL, which, all over the world, is rising to free itself. Ferguson, Missouri, is a flashpoint in this struggle and is rich in valuable lessons – and valuable lives.
There is nothing wrong with anger unless it is constantly triggered – but constrained, held back, and denied. Anger can bring positive change if it is aimed in the right direction and expressed with peaceful intent. However, ongoing injustice brings both injury and insult, making peaceful intent so hard to maintain. Suppressed emotions will eventually explode.
“NO JUSTICE NO PEACE” is basic physics.. a law of nature. Justice is fairness. Fairness is balance. And balance is peace.
The USA is in a 9 Global Year – the number of endings – and Americans are experiencing the end of an entire era of their journey. But before the past can move into its proper place, behind us, the ills of the past must surface so that true justice and healing can occur. Anger, fear, and grief cannot heal until they are recognized, accepted, and expressed outwardly. When we understand this healing process, we realize that there is never a need to harm oneself, or anyone else, when expressing our feelings, no matter how strong or repressed they may be.
Young people are particularly vulnerable to emotional outburst, because they cannot understand how they came to be in this position, or how such injustice can go unchecked … and how they themselves, and others of their age are most likely to be the next victims of police violence.
