"The earth's body is a multi-layered, multi-dimensional vessel. The earth's crust consists of layers of energy that look and feel solid because of the density of the energy, but they are not. Your own body also appears quite solid and is not. Land mass seems as if it is separated into continents, countries and other arbitrary boundaries. It would be more accurate to think in terms of small islands of varying size and shape that are adjacent to each other rather than joined together. This is not meant to make you feel less safe, but to give you a deeper understanding of how your home is arranged.
Unseen bands of energy travel above and below the surface of the earth, guided by intelligent forces of nature. My body is not so different from yours. Beneath your skin layers of muscle and bone expand and contract, build and rebuild, performing several functions at once. What guides your body to develop as it does? Who or what instructs it to regenerate, rejuvenate or repair its health?
Those who study earthquakes would do well to set aside historical data in favor of a progressional study that takes into account how fault lines transfer energy from one zone to another, making areas more or less active. Some of the instruments already in use can be adapted to serve other purposes. Current technology does not yet allow for accurate prediction of earthquakes, but "trend research" is already sophisticated enough to be reliable. Just as satellites observe the formation of hurricanes, other probes placed at strategic points below the surface of the earth could do the same.
2010 will have more earthquakes than usual and some of these will be in places previously considered less likely in this regard. More of these can be expected near coastlines and at depths that are nearer the surface. Areas nearer the equator are also at greater risk. Gases escaping from undersea volcanoes, crevices and gaps are redirecting the flow of energy and creating new patterns. It is the earth's job to do this, do you see? One of the earth's most important functions is to create and preserve life, even when what you see on the surface looks entirely different.
Live compassionately and assess each day on it's own merit. Whenever possible begin and end each day with a note of acknowledgment for having lived well, rather than a sigh of relief for having survived only to repeat the same tasks tomorrow. Do not use your last thought, your last breath or your last bit of kindness. Reserve a little each day so that in unexpected moments you will have care, consideration and empathy for those who need it most."
