Certainty. On a…certain level, don’t we all love it? Certainty and the sense of security it can bring seem to be quite important to human beings. Even certainty about bad, negative, unpleasant things seems to take some of the anxiety away in some cases.

Personally speaking, I’ve been fascinated with esoteric and divination systems that seemed to offer some certainty, such as the I Ching, personality typing systems like Briggs-Myers, the Enneagram and astrology, etc. It’s paradoxical though that the only certainty about security I’ve known most of my life is in living with a lack of the kind most people strive to attain, i.e. a career or job wherein they are, at least for a time, guaranteed steady income, etc.

As can be seen, I’ve lived my life creating and recreating myself many times. As one door closed, usually unexpectedly, I learned to quickly go about finding, or building, another one. This was often quite challenging, especially when I found myself to be the single father of my then 10-month old daughter…and without having been trained in any particularly useful, marketable skills to rely on in order to support us. In a sense, I found that my security was really in having no security…but in coming to be secure enough in myself to know that I could create whatever I needed. Maybe another time I’ll go into the details of my particular adventure.

For the better part of almost seven months, we’ve had the topic of astrology being discussed, most recently as it pertains to the earthquakes that have intensified around the world. The main contributor and proponent of the validity of astrology in predicting specific information about earthquakes has been Tony Vasquez.  Tony’s also stated that he’s corrected the inaccurate terrestrial astrology systems so that his system would, if I understand it correctly, be considered the true and accurate astrology that the Plejaren have referred to. As can be seen from the specific astrology thread, things have been very contentious at times. I’ve been criticized for even having such a topic on my blog.

But I felt that the conversation should be held and that there may be an underlying reason for having it that wasn’t yet clear to me. It recently occurred to me that the reason could indeed be in relationship to the earthquakes. Tony’s recent warnings regarding a coming mega-quake in L.A., and his specific warning today about one coming to San Francisco, not only put his credibility on the line but raise other issues. It probably hasn’t escaped anyone’s notice that Tony has appeared to not only be quite confident in his predictions but standoffish and even arrogant in addressing not only criticisms but respectful questions and challenges pertaining to his accuracy, credentials, etc.

I’ve occasionally mentioned that, in my experience, Tony has been both accurate and…inaccurate. Because the subject of mega-quakes is quite in the news, as well as being discussed by various other astrologers, scientists, etc., we are reminded that Billy Meier predicted all of this beginning back in 1951. Now that it is upon us, it can increase our desire for certainty and security, to know when this or that next big event is going to happen. But human beings are funny creatures. We also tend to rationalize, deny, negotiate with ourselves, etc., in order to avoid or negate being self-responsible. We’ve seen many examples of people who refused to leave their homes, in the face of news warnings about hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, fires, etc. – even when the foretold events were upon them. Some survived, some lost their homes and even their lives.

Those of us who’ve studied and followed Billy Meier’s information most probably no longer have any doubts as to his incomparable and impeccable prophetic accuracy. So we’ve also wanted and asked for even more specifics, like exactly when this or that event is going to occur. In a way we’re trying to make things more…convenient for ourselves. But Meier has avoided being any more specific and has only reiterated what he’s said before, i.e. that certain places are extremely vulnerable to earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, etc., and that self-responsible people are sufficiently advised.

But that convenience thing still dictates many people’s lives and so even beginning to create alternative directions in life, locations for places to live and work, etc., are pushed to the back burner because of it. So I want to put a few things forward here in order to be very clear myself. First, by hosting the conversation about the earthquakes, prophecies, astrological predictions, etc., I am not in any way trying to tell people what they should do, nor to criticize them if they don’t see things the way I, or anyone else here, does. I refer back to the earlier part of the blog where I spoke about my paradoxical concern with systems that appeal to one’s search for certainty and security and my only being able to find it in myself, whatever the external conditions.

So, ultimately and literally, we’re all in the same boat…and on the same planet. How and what we decide to do, and upon what we base our decisions, are strictly personal matters of self-responsibility.

To also return to Tony’s astrological predictions about the certainty of earthquakes of specific magnitudes in specific time periods, I already said that he’s gotten certain things right…and that he’s gotten other things wrong. To balance the equation, therefore, I am listing a number of predictions* that Tony sent me in emails beginning last year that may not have occurred, or perhaps did occur partially. I should add that there were things that he appeared to foresee accurately, which I think he’s included in his own list on the blogs. I’ll let people evaluate these for themselves and of course let them ask Tony for more specifics if they wish.

Before listing the information I just want to put things in this perspective. We have meteorologists and weathermen/women who predict various conditions and the weather. Sometimes we base our decisions on what to wear, to carry an umbrella, etc., on what they say. Sometimes they’re right, sometimes they’re wrong. And sometimes it doesn’t hurt to have an umbrella, snow shovel, sunscreen, etc., handy just in case.

It still all comes down to self-responsibility.


*The following global predictions were from Tony Vasquez during August 2013 – January 2014:

Missiles being launched from planes and from missile launch pads. Large explosions in desert area’s. Very large bombs with great power and intensity. In the middle east in late 2013 into 2014.   I see one bomb explosion that wipes out an entire city. This city already has heavy damage. This blast looks to be nuclear.

There becomes a religious war and attacks involving others around the globe. The United States, Canada, along with Germany, all join together with the United States forces leading the way to help bring down a religious political leader – Iran?

A massive earthquake will take place in the ocean causing a rise of islands and the rise of Atlantis which I do believe will take place over the next ten of years.

In 2013 I do see a major seaquake that does take place in the middle of the ocean that will cause major destruction and in turn cause a tsunami that will hit a coastline that has never been hit before and has never expected to be hit before – US east coast?

A new war breaks out in countries that are least expected to cause war – Europe?

It seems like North Korea and its leaders are going to cause many issues to install fear into its own people and surrounding people which will bring complete failure to the country of North Korea and the fall of their current leaders

An assassination attempt will be successful on one of the leaders of North Korea.

There will be three different assassinations and assassination attempts on major leaders and political figures.

Camp/Fort Stanley will be attacked in S.Korea by N. Korea. Huge war, 1000’s die.

New discoveries come out of Egypt. That include an underground city that lies beneath the pyramids of Egypt. One that is covered by sand and large sand dunes in the desert unveils a large discovery of Ancient Egypt, something very sacred and powerful that has been sitting under the sand for thousands of years.

The Deaths of Nelson Mandela and George Bush Sr.

There will be another high school shooting soon – 14 dead, shot in a gym, 17 more in another building, 31 total dead.

I think they will attack Syria this week.

Mars is in Cancer. Many wars have started under this position. We’ll see, but my prediction is the attack will happen, and Israel and Iran will get involved, which could be very unfortunate.

I still predict an attack while Mars is in Cancer – 4 more weeks.

Looks like that school shooting/bombing will take place in Texas – still no time frame, but soon.

I’m hearing ” major earthquake in N. California in Dec. 2013.”  CNN reports catastrophic damage.

  • Tony Vasquez – Professional Astrologer says: “Michael,
    Firstly, the petition was your idea. Did you not think it through before you suggested it? Are you going to change your mind because of the nonsensical emotional rant of one person?”
    Tony let me make it perfectly clear to you and all that would want such a petition that I do not rant or come on to this blog to antagonise, upset, offend or to win over anybody, I clearly to the best of my abilities put my point of view or in this case my stance over a particular area under discussion calmly and with thought that is because I am a student of the spiritual teaching and by association with the Teaching I to a point represent FIGU, Billy and TheyFly but more to the point I try very hard to live by what I have been taught and what I have indeed learned so far and some of the credit certainly goes to you guys here which I thankyou for.
    Chernobyl nuclear power plant failure was known worldwide and some of the after effects of this disaster became a feature of T.V documentaries. Japan with its history of earthquakes built Nuclear power plants and we continue to build Nuclear power plants throughout the World even now. Three Mile Island was a potentially lethal disaster and since that incident the surrounding area’s population has increased. Hurricane Katrina a “natural” disaster of biblical proportions and people still live there, it is the same throughout the globe, a disaster strikes sometimes affecting millions and what happens they all go back and rebuild, San Francisco a major earthquake so let’s build a mega city there, just look what happened in Christchurch Newzealand a hot spot for earthquakes, they rebuilt, flood plains let’s build houses and the list is endless and it’s just has the Prophet states, he cannot be clearer but you want that little bit more!
    It would be fair to say would it not that MOST of the population of SanFrancisco understand that there is a massive earthquake coming their way would it not? So they have seen other disasters around the world and even in their own country in recent years so it is a logical conclusion that people living there are living there by their own choice they are aware of earthquakes and have been warned that a “Big one” is due, (by the way Billy was asked the question about the “Big one” and said that we would all have our angels wings).
    Let us assume that most of the population in S.F have not heard of Billy or any of his work or FIGU are you seriously telling me that most of the adult population there don’t realise these are dangerous times for them? Of course they do.
    With regards to saving my life there is a big difference to pulling me out of a burning car wreck and warning me about driving at a certain time on a certain day of a certain year especially if I know that that particular road is notorious for crashes.
    Now Tony there is one thing that puzzles me and that is your claim to have the best Astrology in the world today and you have predicted with utmost confidence the L.A earthquakes so why do you need the Prophet to tell you when the “ Big one” strikes S.F?
    Best Wishes


    • Curious, Dave…did Billy actually say “we” referring to “we” collectively as students of Spirit Teaching or “we” as in the audience he was addressing, which, I understood to be just two people? Perhaps MH can clarify that as I understood he was there? With the passage of time, I am certain people will come to appreciate the context of what BEAM says more and more, and not just words.

      Not defending Tony but just thought that perhaps the exact date was something to help people to prepare (even the naysayers would be foolish no to do some precautionary preparation just in case? — think Y2K and 2012, neither of which happened though many have prepared for it). Now with all the hoopla on Y2K and 2012 gone, I’d suspect even less people (read: skeptics) would prepare for any prediction from “prophets,” “seers,” than before.

      However, there is no disagreement here that people live and “die” by their own choice, all the time, whether they know it or not.

      • Hi Rob
        I’m under the impression that the “Big one” is still a good few years away yet, my personal intuition says at least twenty years from now and has much as fifty years from now, I’m not saying that there isn’t going to earthquakes in the area as it wouldn’t surprise me if before the “Big one” several “smaller ones” will have taken many lives.
        I know through the discussions about it the mirror less Car is an indicator of the near time however we don’t know what is under the bonnet/hood or the glass roof is a new solar panel or an aid to a self drive satellite system etc.
        Throughout history the “false prophets” have caught the attention of for want of a better word the “feeble minded” and I agree with you some people can’t work things out there confused so let us say you were given the date of the “Big one” ask yourself what would you do and could you live with yourself afterwards? How are you going to explain to people how you know and who told without sounding like another crank etc of which the world is currently full of in my opinion?
        If I told you that a major disaster was going to hit your home Town would you listen would you give up your job,home and life long possessions on my say so?
        Billy was asked the date and he didn’t give,so before a petition to demand the answer why not ask Billy why he won’t give it?
        Best wishes

        • My personal opinion is that other people’s destiny are not anyone’s to change. This is probably why dates are held back from the broader public, but the inner circle of BEAM knows more than everyone else, who is known to have access to unadulterated contact notes. When people are ready for change, they will, without the prompting of a prophet.

          Furthermore, my understanding from BEAM is that we are only to share spirit teaching knowledge when asked, in defense of wrongful accusation, or to make it available so interested (evolved) party can find it when he/she is ready.

          The chain of cause and effect would be tremendous given the number of people involved if actual date was given of such a event.

          Would you agree that leaving the date ungiven prompts self-responsibility/discovery to truly interested party than than if a date was given?

          By the way, I agree with you on your assessment of the time frame based on my own research. 🙂

          • I personally would not want to know any dates of any major disasters I don’t think it would help me – a good question though 🙂

            Best wishes

  • Quite frankly, I feel the issue regarding astrology on the blog may be getting a tad out of hand and seriously detracts from what the mission actually is here. It’s probably a foregone conclusion that we would all feel much better if there was more clarity with dates regarding possible ominous things to come for the sole reason of helping our fellow Humans. I think it’s a good idea regarding the petition, I just have doubts whether our Plejaren visitors will be very forthcoming, maybe I’m wrong. It may be wise not to concentrate on who was right about which date and try to construct viable ways in which the Earth’s population can access the truth. Some will understand it as truth immediately, others will balk at it. Nonetheless, all Humans both terrestrial and otherwise deserve to be at least exposed to it so they can begin digesting it on their own. Michael does an excellent job getting the word out there already and I’m sure we can all do our part to assist in some way. It’s already hard enough as it is to get people to wake up without having to quarrel over who got what right and when regarding the next horrible thing to occur to many innocent people. I don’t intend any disrespect to anyone whatsover. Maybe we can all pool our collective ideas together for some other methods of disseminating the teachings and the irrefutable proof of the visitors. Many people around the world still consider us “nut cases” but that is rapidly changing, thank goodness.

  • from the Goblet of the Truth:

    Those amongst you who are unknowing ones in the truth, you attempt to find out your foreordination (destiny) by objects referred to as a Lospfeil*, but this, like legerdemain (magic) and making fabulations from reading the stars, is only a harmful deceptive hallucination (delusional construction) of evil blabbermouths (charlatans) and deceivers and false seers who delude you and demand possessions and payment (money) from you for it; and do not fear their threats that you will be struck by a calamity or other terrible things, which they talk you into believing through their cunning and let you fall into grievance and fear, because these deceivers of you are entirely powerless (unable) to make truthful (unfalsified) predictions, although this is a capability of the true prophets and the true wise heralds (seers and harbingers), all of whom never take any payment for their insights into the future, just as they do not undertake commerce or swagger (boast) with their skill (ability), because they are truly wise ones and are dedicated to modesty, and do not make a fuss about themselves.

    All those amongst you, do not doubt your knowledge of the truth when you hear the blabbermouths (charlatans) and deceivers and the false seers telling lies about your foreordination (destiny), because all of their words are mere slander (calumny) of the truth; do not take their false words as the truth so that you do not begin to despair due to their deception and so you do not fear what the time to come (future) will bring you.

    And there are many amongst you who boast in your megalomania and selfishness and place yourselves in the light of attention of the people of your kind (human beings) in order to shine before them, but your nature is depraved and your psyche and inner world (consciousness) are ill through wanting to shine before the others; and truly, your efforts are based on immodesty and in the greediness to make a sensation about your person, but your present existence is therefore joyless and inequitable (unfair), and your happiness is as fragile as mouldy wood, and your life-conduct is as useless as a rotting fruit.

    Modesty is the true nature of the true people of your kind (human beings), who go along in honesty and equitableness (fairness/responsibility) and who determine their words and deeds accordingly; and it is not possible to trust anyone who raises themselves up and sets themselves above others in any wise, rather true trust can only be given to someone who leads their present existence in modesty and also displays modesty in their dealings with you.

    • Wow, how perfectly germane. May deserve to be re-posted on the astrology thread as well. I’m thinking we will not be hearing so much from our favorite professional astrologer as the year continues without certain events taking place…

      • Yeah, not to hard to find some applicable to the resident self-designated so-called “Professional Astrologer”.

        Not to mention how Mr. “Professional Astrologer” steals and uses the Prophets phraseology-language, i.e. – “the harsh or hard language of the truth”, to describe his highhanded & haughty put downs and insults to anyone who not only disagrees with him, but dares to question/challenge him, as if he were on a level of the Universal Prophet who had descended from pure spirit levels back into the material realms. In the same delusional non-thinking manner, he imagines himself to be the only human on planet earth who has figured out, has devoloped and implements a so-called ‘correct’ form of astrology, as practiced by the Plejaren, who are some 20 million +/- years ahead of the average earthling in their material-spiritual evolution. Should he ever get a response from Billy, on whether or not he indeed practices such a correct form of astrology, he will be experiencing the harsh and hard language of truth himself. But whether he would even let such hard truth-language in through his thick, fragile ego-protective/defensive shell-shield, remains to be seen.

        • Yup. As for your last sentence, I was thinking the same thing. But, because we haven’t heard from him in a bit, I’m thinking probably he has received a response and is currently trying to cope with it as reality slowly sets in. I actually kinda feel bad for the guy. Can hardly imagine what it’d be like comin to terms with the fact that a whole life and 34 year long career was based largely on delusion. On the other other hand, kinda hard to feel sorry for a guy who is not simply misguided, but extremely arrogant, disrespectful, high-handed, etc, etc. And indeed, Billy states pity is always out of place.

          In any case, the lively discussion was fun while it lasted, but probably a good thing that the focus can now shift to weightier matters.

          You are the Bruce with the translations, yes? Thank you! Really enjoying the recent self-assertion piece; some great, practical stuff there…gawsh Billy’s such a genius.

          Michael talks about the copy-righted predictions as the best evidence of the authenticity of the case – and I’m sure he is right about that, but I would think, to those who will give it a fair read, the spiritual teaching itself can serve as a huge indicator. The writings of the man just scream of sagacious-ness…Know I’m preachin to the choir here, but man, just so so so far above and beyond all the religious/new age mumbo jumbo.

  • Certainty… Is an interesting thing to think about. What is certain with or without security.
    If I am certain that bad things will befoul our world, will I ever be secure with anything else without having created some sort of security to comfort my thoughts/feelings(even if seemingly superficial on a physical level). Maybe a balance between what we see as certain and what we see as being able to create security within ourselves. As no matter what may befoul our dear earth we have within ourselves to try and evolve and continue the ever needed self responsibility to our world and each other… no matter what certainty we may think we will find on the ‘outside’. The world is a never ending string of events that lose the masses from one event to another… no security no certainty that things will get better, push this mass forward without thought and true self responsible security within treating each event as they are truly needed to be treated. I guess the only certainty that can be gained is that we are certain to learn from our mistakes eventually or face grueling conditions until we do. If my own way through life is any indicator to many others… the hard way always seems to be what we think is the easy way and we take security in that? Our we certain that this is the right approach?
