These comments were made on my 'LOVE FOR LOVE ITSELF' post, published in several discussion groups.
Chaos exists in order and order in chaos. Fractals demonstrate this tendency in their chaotic yet ordered beauty. When my life is in chaos (which it often is with our daughters and their mental incapacities) I try to find the predictable order that inevitably reveals itself. It's always there. I just have to remember to seek it and utilize it.
Thank you for your post and blog. In the last 3 weeks my soul woke up to its wholeness. Nobody knows what I’m talking about, but everything has shifted inside.
My diet my thinking.. I’m very in touch with my emotions, my understanding, my speech (the other day I wrote a lengthy poem to my wife as a text to explain something deeper I couldn’t otherwise do and it poured from me as if from nowhere.)
I sleep and eat very little now and no effort of mine can convince me that I want either of these things (which absolutely wasn’t true just a few weeks ago).
I feel elated on one hand and alienated on another… it’s not that people don’t just understand, but they don’t even WANT to hear me. Almost like it pains them to hear.
I’m 33 and I have been seeking all my life and from as many relevant sources as to which I’d resonate. I feel assured and I haven’t known fear since then… but my energies can be a bit much at times (especially by others)
I have an inner guide as I am now connected to my spirit and my will. But I have more questions than anything and I’d really love some direct contact with anyone in regards to this. However the only people I have to bounce this information off of is you people from various groups I’ve recently joined…but I have never been in contact with aliens nor have seen a ufo. I have no skills toward this in the sense of psychic or astral abilities.
All I have is sounds in the darkness, and in this way feel as though I’m watching you all explain in various ways the summation of my experience. This is the realest experience of my life and simultaneous unreal to anything real in my life as I can’t find anyone but strangers who’ve had experienced anything similar.
All of this is to say your way of writing and understanding on the topic is extremely helpful to me. Thank you 😢❤️
Thank-you for sharing this marvelous post, Gary R. Smith! The topics within have been favorite readings of mine. We are truly individual sparks of divinity. The love, wisdom and power of our hearts is how we can facilitate earth's ascension. In fact in my post below, it is these sparks of light (or bio-photonic light) and heartfelt positive feelings which will transform not only our DNA health, but also the world. (See post below.)

Wonderfully expressed , this matches with my thoughts and feelings on it perfectly . Indeed, it can be felt at the moment and is becoming more obvious by the day , we are on the cusp of a never before attempted shift in awareness and frequency . To do this while still embodied should be an interesting experience 😀Thank you for sharing brother , great post 💜🙏
This is such a juicy post and something I could talk for days on 🥰. Our Earth is ascending...everything is ascending in our entire universe. This is a natural cycle, previously unsuccessful for many reasons...but now guaranteed for those who choose to follow the ascension route in this ascension cycle. Love is the heart bridge to everything...love is a state of consciousness , a state of BEing. When you operate from this high vibrational consciousness corridor, you create beautifully and in line with the Law of One, and the restoration of the Christos mission principles.
1. Unity Consciousness
2. Love Yourself
3. Love Others
4. Love Earth & Nature
5. Service to Others
6. Consciousness Expansion
7. Responsible Co-Creation
Our timelines have already bifurcated and the new energy matrix is now visible. We are creating heaven on earth as we transition forward...for those that choose. As freewill plays a big part in everyone’s journey. And everyone is following their own individual path either consciously... or unconsciously...both long previously agreed at soul level.
Thank you for sharing. Great post 🌬🌹
This echos the wordless knowing within. Love of formless love and its expression across all dimensions and forms, known and unknown, is the essence of that which conducts All Love. The cosmic dance is a mysterious paradox, to be aware, conscious of this, is unconditional Loves gift to us, the very gift that creates unconditional Love. I love how you share your quantum journey with such a wise and open heart. Thank you 🙏🏾
Yes 'the wordless knowing within' says all that can be said. It is ineffable so cannot be fully expressed in words. Yet we bubble over with trying! You have expressed it so well, may I add your comment to the post?
From the same clouds
fall countless starflakes,
each unique yet each
in some way the same
So each person answers
in their own unique way,
within our same shared
Ultimately you will find your way.
In my experience, all my years
of seeking, studying, applying myself
and yearning to know
God, to find the highest truth,
to live what my knowing
tells me is true.... has led me
to one simple line which applies
to my every thought and action.
All that is needed
is to remind myself
continually, and think
and act accordingly. The line is:
'I am motivated by my love for Love Itself.'
In the debate on what happens
at ascension, or awakening,
some say it is determined by
whether a person serves self
or the Other. I have concluded
it is neither, but the degree
to which I motivated by
my love for Love Itself.

GS - My FB love of your comment is a response to the passion and level of understanding you put into it. Not that I agree or resonate with all of what you wrote. I do agree that whether or not the earth ascends in some way as many believe, it is not a given that all who are expecting to ascend (at least in the way I envision) will.
MP - Is Earth ascending? Interesting question.
Gaia, Mother Earth started out as a molten hot sphere. It cooled and formed an atmosphere. The rains came and filled the oceans and life eventually started. Since then the earth gave life to flora and fauna in a billion different ways. The planet was bountiful, healthy and good.
I am sure God/The Universe was truly happy with this wondrous planet in all its perfection.
Along came humans! For a time humans were grateful for all of the bounty this earth provided. Time passed and along came greed and avarice. No longer satisfied with what the earth was providing and wanted more, much more.
The earth has been raped for the riches and the waste discarded without concern. No restoration, just pollution. The rivers full of filth and toxins, forests stripped bare only to take away the earth's ability to breathe fresh air into our limited atmosphere. Fossil fuels destroying the ozone and allowing high levels of radiation from the sun's rays. Watering down of the Gulf stream which also affects the jet stream where the outcome is major climate change.
GS - You have my agreement on the above. Then you wrote:
MP - You mention water finding its own level, but Archimedes developed a screw to move the water uphill and let us not forget hydroponics.
GS - Does that contradict my application of water finding its own level?
And you added:
MP - Mankind finds ways to overcome constraints, some of which are brilliant, until making money overtakes the responsibility of caring for our planet.
MP - Sadly, I do not feel that the world and humankind is ascending. I think we are being given a serious wakeup call. A warning and example of how the strongest of all can be humbled. If we just gave thought as to how simple this pandemic has wreaked havoc throughout the world and all of its people, we may start to understand the need for radical change.
MP - I fear far too many short sighted, self important leaders are blind to the real and present dangers we have manufactured and witnessed. Unless we change, more is yet to come.
GS - Yes, I see a division taking place. Over-simplified, those who serve self will bear the consequences of their actions -- greed, etc. Those who truly serve Love may actually ascend, and live in a higher density/dimension still on this planet. I choose to believe it.
MP - Mankind is forcing disaster upon our planet. If God is looking at our lack of respect for this once perfect world, I can barely imagine how truly let down he must feel. Think about The Rapture and Armageddon, are we destined to face the wrath of God?
GS - I no longer am bound by the dogma of a separate, patriarchal God. All is God. Only in separated human consciousness are we separated. With expansion of awareness, the underlying oneness is realized.
MP - No I was not contradicting your water finding its own level, or your intended meaning.
GS - Thank you for the clarification. I didn't mean my question to sound as it did, either. We are on the same page, I believe. As I see it, even when man uses technology to modify what Nature would do on its own, the water is still finding its own level in hydroponics or the Archimedes screw. Those mechanisms cause water to overcome its tendency to follow the pull of gravity but even in Nature, water is pulled upwards to nourish plants and trees.
MP - I followed it up with how mankind overcomes. Although I am a spiritual person, I do not affiliate with any specific religious group.
GS - Yes, we are on the same page.
MP - I am an individual with an individual connection to a realm where intelligence and love are far beyond our primitive minds.
GS - Again, we are in resonance.
MP - You are welcome to add my comment to your post. I thank you for your respect in asking.
GS - Even though I haven't kept up fully with editing the whole post for readability, comments are posted here:
The second coming of the Christ (energy of unconditional love), is arising in the hearts of mankind who soul chose to experience Ascension. This process is a cycle of 26,000 years, where 3D ascends back to 5th dimension. This process is acheived in progressive waves and this is our last life in this 3D timeline <3

From my perspective,,for the most part I don't think there is any dispute amongst the awakened community of the fact that Mother Earth and humanity is ascending. The only ones without enough awareness to this fact might have a word to say about it and or dispute what we know as fact,,as they are not yet awakened. Additionally,,humanity's scientific knowledge level is completely based on intentionally limited and controlled intellectual capacity,,as are school text books,,and so forth.
Thank you for your honest feedback. I honor your perspective and see it a little differently.
To me, there are no awakened people, only awakening.
I post in many groups within the awakening community and encounter much confusion and uncertainty about the widely discussed ascension.
Yes, the earth is ascending, but what does that mean? Some of the awakening ones might says frequencies are raising. Can that be measured?
It doesn't have to be measured, for me, as I have an inner knowing and am content to leave it in general terms. Whether raising or not, I feel frequencies are changing. How it all plays out is largely a mystery. I can only watch to see what emerges.
Ascension implies upward movement. I don't think that is accurate, literally. But we can only use the language we have, to communicate something. Probably it is more an expansion of collective awareness, allowing innate capabilities to become more evident.
To see the 'Ascension' direction of the beautiful planet and human mental & physical health, simply open your eyes! Denial may feel good in the short term, but may take you down. It takes mind and heart training to recognize and accept the Divine Truth and reverse the trend. Evolution from single celled organisms through monkeys to humans is impossible according to our laws of thermodynamics. As per all ancient records and the sophisticated ancient architecture all around the earth, we fell. We devolved from more loving and harmonious star being dimensions to the disorder & limitation of humans in entropy, gravity and disease. As our consciousness fell, our technology improved to compensate. The answer is Divinely Guided love & harmony of each other & the planet. https://www.suzannamariaemmanuel-caeayaron.com/divine-pineal-gland-activations/ 💙❤☀😀🎉🎶☀️

This is beautiful. 😊💜
May you kindly share the ancient prophesies you've mentioned? 💜🙏
Thank you for asking!
Your question prompted me to do a search, and that brought up a great article on Medium. Here's an excerpt from the article, with a link.
The Many Ancient Prophecies that Point to These Times
The prophecies of many ancient cultures have spoken of these times. Underneath the public chaos, the uncertainty, the fear, and the dissolution of the old, there is something deep brewing. These are unprecedented times, exciting times to be alive. Though the waters on the surface may be choppy, below there is an undercurrent of deep calm. Something galactic, something cosmic, is underfoot.
The Hopi people spoke of the Purification Times, the Cherokee called it the Rainbow Prophecy, and the sacred texts of the Hindu culture, the Vedas, called it the Great Year and the Cycle of Ascension. A thousand years ago, the ancient Mayans predicted an ending of an era; that on winter solstice 2012, the sun, the earth, and the center of the Milky Way would be perfectly aligned for the first time in 26,000 years, ending the “fifth era of the sun.”
Their prediction about the sun’s position was right, but the modern interpretation, that it signalled the “End of the World”, was perhaps not what the Mayan prophecy meant. It is indeed the End of an Old World, but on a deeper level, it’s the rebirth of a new.
From a human perspective, it can surely all seem apocalyptic; a pandemic, climate change, economy collapse. However, from spiritual eyes, from the eyes of the soul, it all looks much different.
We’ve all heard of the end times and the end of the world as we know it, maybe even an apocalypse. But many ancient prophecies, as well as current intuition within many hearts, point to the truth that humanity will ascend into a greater state of consciousness. We are undergoing a planetary dark night of the soul, experiencing the deepest darkness before we wake up to a Golden Dawn.

Thank you for your kindness typing this. I just cant open any website aside from fb 😁. Well, sometimes some opens but this time the attached photo shows. 😅. Thank you so much. 😊💜🙏
Since Medium is a restricted site, and others cannot view the article, I made screenshots and put them in a slideshow below. It is not perfect for reading, I didn't capture everything, but it gives a good sense of the author's well-organized research.
I am finding it most difficult to separate my desire to serve mankind's greatest good for it's own sake without the fire to also benefit myself in some way -- also feel guilty for feeling that way knowing it is useless switching to higher dimensional thinking is harder than it looks because actually it's easy.
The ego-mind creates the struggle in us all. Not all find it easy to focus on the abstract. For me, it is natural, but I am Gemini and Asperger's. So I cannot say how it is for someone else. But, I've found it a great help to focus on and repeat to myself over the day, 'I am motivated by my love for Love itself.'
Like changing any mental habit, it requires some dedicated effort. I had an excess of baggage to work through, yet I am seeing the change in me.
I am in total agreement with all written here. This is rare for me. Came to this same understanding decades ago, and every thing that's happening since only confirms it for me. Darkest before the dawn. And the Schumann resonance of the planet has risen apparently and humanity is questioning everything, so a bit of chaos, but I feel it will settle out to respect, love and compassion. Still work to do .......💖
Yes I've read most of what you mention , in limited form,......
I tend to now go with the intent of many of these prophecies and focus on what I can do in the now. Nobody is going to wake to the Golden dawn if one does not open to the inner self. But I do feel the ascension is brewing.... But it's up to us all, or at least critical mass for it to continue . Nobody really knows, but it feels true to me💖
One so obvious truth, that is constantly in front of our eyes is that we have lack of compassion, not only to other human beings, but in far great percent towards animals. They are living beings, with souls and emotions.
My personal insight is that when I became vegan, just few days after that I felt great pain for animals and the next thing that showed up is compassion, which penetrated to my bones. I realised that my personal strugle to learn and feel self-love was directly connected to compassion for animals. What we give, returns to us, so if don't give our full compassion to all living beings, we can't feel compassion and love for ourselves in return. We are all one, but we must become aware in what way are we responsible for each and one living being and how our behaviour and habits are influenceing all living beings. Namaste🙏🤍
Yes, we all come through our awakenings in different ways. In 1968, as an 8th grader, I wrote a paper titled 'Man' about the way humans treat animals as objects and possessions. That's written in stories and following is an excerpt. I was raised in a meat eating family, and didn't become vegetarian until I was in my late forties, about 20 years ago. But being vegan can also be a trap, as I found when visiting Gentle World, a vegan community on the Big Island of Hawaii.
From 'Return to the River of No Return':
A dry, shuddering sound, vigorous and menacing, came from the direction of my tent. Cold reptilian eyes fixed their stare on me as I approached from the creek below.
I knew what it was, of course, but feared that my dog friend would not and shouted sharply for her to stay back.
The rattlesnake was coiled at the entrance of our dirt-floor tent, shaking its tail in warning.
At the creek I'd been carving on the forked end of a new walking stick. Still shouting at Kiche, I maneuvered around the snake, pinned the body to the ground under the fork, grabbed it closely behind the head and stabbed it through the brain with my carving knife.
Kiche and I had come here by bush pilot one week after my fifteenth birthday. We were dropped over the mountaintops in a sharp descent to a grassy landing strip along the river. The only other way is by hiking the trail for more than thirty miles from the end of the road.
Our tent was pitched at the base of a leaning tree near Cougar Creek. It was an hour’s hike from Jess and Dorothy Taylor, the old-timers who homesteaded at their hunting cabin – and many miles in any direction from other signs of civilization.
After killing the snake, I went on with gathering firewood – my senses on heightened alert. The sun set over the mountains and the high altitude air brought chill bumps to my skin. That night the stars were especially bright against the black void.
Why was a fifteen year old in this remote wilderness, alone with his dog? Well, it had to do with a paper I wrote titled, "Man."
My writing expressed the feelings I held towards mankind and his treatment of animals as objects and possessions and his inhumanity towards his fellow man. It was bound in a black binder when I handed it to my eighth grade science teacher and asked him for confidentiality.
Apparently disturbed by the writing, the teacher took it to the school counselor. They called my parents in for a conference, and I started seeing a psychologist as they feared I was anti-social. Somehow the plan arose to set me in the Idaho River of No Return Wilderness where Dad had done a bighorn sheep study years before. Perhaps by being away from human society for a summer, by myself, I would come to appreciate it more.
In the lower forty-eight, there is not a more raw or remote wilderness. It is rattlesnake country, and home to moose, great herds of elk, bighorn sheep, black bear and wolves. For centuries, up until the 1800s, a peaceful tribe who called themselves "People of the Sun" lived in the river canyons. Over the summer, while hiking the river trails, I killed eight rattlesnakes. Sure it was a contradiction of my principles. But I felt that if I did not kill the rattlers, they would kill Kiche or me. That summer I also found an arrowhead in an Indian mound, entered a cave with primitive paintings and had many dreams in the night....
It is different when our life is threatened, and our instinctive reaction is to defend ourselves from conscious decisions.
Yes, and the story continues. 33 years after my summer in the wilderness, I returned with my wife. It's a bit of a read....
Return to the River of No Return
Thirty-three years after my summer of '68 in the wilderness, I met my life partner Kati in Ashland, Oregon. She was in America on a tourist visa and could not stay. I had made the choice to go with her, wherever she went. The question was, where? Our choices came to India or Spain. The hub, Is Destiny Real? tells more of the story of our meeting.
Kati had heard me talk about my summer in the wilderness. One day I wore a t-shirt printed with a message from an Idaho river town. Kati said, “That’s it! We’ll go to Idaho and find a clear answer in nature.”
A lot of water had passed under the bridge in the years since my boyhood experience. Through the traumas and choices of life, I had trapped myself in stiff, narrow-minded thinking then broken out of the entrapment to live who I am. After the break-out, Kati and I met. Now we were in a new relationship with an unknown future.
The highway carried us from city to city. A two lane road took us through smaller towns. Then the pavement ended and we followed a dirt road for miles through thick forests until we came to Yellowpine, a settlement with three bars and a few houses. From there it was more dirt road to an outfitter with horses and cabins at the headwaters of Big Creek. And then we hefted our backpacks and hiked.
At times I felt overwhelmed by the wonder of being back in this remote wilderness which had appeared many times in my dreams since that summer long ago.
A few hours in, we saw an unusual circle of white daisies in a grassy patch between us and the river. We decided to make the widened, flat area around it our base camp.
Kati pitched her tent under the trees, and I nearer the river’s edge. The landscape had been changed by an earthquake which brought down parts of the mountainside. Already we’d seen a huge black moose tramping through the woods above us, a black bear cub curled around a tree, and signs of a wolf kill on the trail. I found later, on a hike deeper into the wilderness, that the forest had overgrown the small cabin of an old river hermit I had visited as a boy.
Returning to our camp site from a day hike late one afternoon, I heard the inner voice say “Be alert.” When we retired into our tents that night, I fell easily into sleep, lulled by the sound of the river. I was awakened suddenly around midnight when Kati burst into my tent. She was frantic and disoriented. My inner calmness took over and I eased her into a calm space. We didn’t discuss what had happened until the next morning when we sat together on a log.
Without knowing the history, we felt that the clearing where we camped was connected with a battle. And the psycho-emotional energies of the dying wounded were still bound to the earth. They were asking us to help them be set free. It was our first experience with such a thing, but we just knew what to do. We sat facing the daisy circle and went within again. There we followed our inner guiding to set free the earthbound souls.
When we came back out from the inner work, Kati asked for a sign that it was complete. The air had been perfectly still, but in that moment a breeze blew, bending the daisy heads as if to nod yes. In our state of heightened awareness, Kati had seen spirals of light lifting from the earth and I had sensed a lifting and clearing of the energies.
Deeper into the Wilderness
The next day we were determined to hike the thirty-some miles to the old Taylor Ranch, now a research station of the University of Idaho. I hadn’t had any contact and didn’t know what we’d find, nor was anyone expecting us. We had outfitted ourselves marginally for this wilderness adventure, as we were expecting to afterwards fly either to India or Spain.
Kati’s tennis shoes were inadequate for the trail made rocky by earthquake rubble and her feet were soon blistered. The grey clouds gathered into a light, steady rain and we were soaked to the skin. We carried sleeping bags but not provisions, counting on the hospitality of the research station. We had no choice but to make it there before nightfall. At this altitude it would be cold and miserable without shelter.
On the way we met a packer riding horseback, who told us it was a hard day’s ride to the research station. He did not see a chance for us to make it on foot in one day. But we pressed on. It was mid-summer and the berry bushes along the trail made a welcome feast. In one bush, another surprise was hidden, as a rattlesnake lay coiled there. This time, I apologized for killing his ancestors, and wished him peace.
As we topped a crest, a herd of more than fifty elk trotted across the large meadow. The shadows were growing long and the sun was starting to set behind the mountains when we saw the first horse corral. Further downriver, we finally came to the suspension bridge that carried us to the other side. It was further up the mountain to the main cabin of the old Taylor Ranch than I remembered, but the feeling from so many years ago came back in waves of wonderment to be here.
I don't want to disparage anyone, and of course not all vegans are like the ones of the Gentle World community. My wife and I have been vegetarian for twenty years, and in a more supportive setting would be vegan. But then we might consider also that plants are beings, with sensitivity. For me, the essential is to be motivated by my love for Love Itself, and respectful towards all beings as you wrote. Thank you.
