Building Nova Earth: Toward A World That Works for Everyone

In the Midst of the Maelstrom

A reader has written and called me “naieve” for my support of President Obama.

It is difficult to maintain course in the midst of a maelstrom.

While the storm howls, much worry surfaces. Am I doing the right thing? Do I need to change course? Do I need to tack or take in sail?

Conflicting reports pour in. The discomfort level rises. As SaLuSa said, the darkness is greatest just before the dawn – and it’s very dark right now.

Structures are falling. Rumors of war swirl around us. Charges and counter-charges fly. Even lightworkers are turning on their own and tearing them apart.

In the midst of the maelstrom, I – you – we – have to ask ourselves: what star do we steer by? What course do we follow?

The path for me is clear. I will not be spooked by rumors. I intend to remain calm during this period, above all else.

If I am being naieve in my support of the President, I intend to remain naieve for the present and take a second look once we are on the other side. I cannot get my bearings in the midst of pandemonium. And I don’t think I need to.

The equipment is sound. The course is well-thought-out. All systems were go before the hurricane struck. Yes, we may be out of contact with regular channels or our saner self while the world goes mad at this strangest time of the year in the strangest year of recent times and the strangest juncture of human history. Yes, all seems maximally confusing.

But I intend to remain on course, ride out the storm, and take stock again when the wind dies down.

Yes, I risk being wrong. Yes, I risk looking foolish. But remaining calm presents the best possible chance of coming through the maelstrom intact.

As the storm mounts, whether the storm of seasonal frenzy, or the storm of the cabal attacking Obama, or the storm of the New World Order trying to save itself, I intend to plunge deeper into calmness, following the best and most enduring spiritual wisdom.

I’ve chosen a life lived publicly. I don’t have the luxury of simply turning off the machine and retreating into my own space. And that lack of privacy feels uncomfortable at a time like this. I’d rather run and hide.

But this is the manner of service I chose and I won’t allow discomfort to sway me. I intend to remain calm, as the house burns up and the rafters fall. I won’t remain in the burning house but I also won’t lose my head and flee. I know that a New Era is dawning and what will then transpire will alleviate all pain.

This is the time of which the scriptures spoke – the end times, the time of troubles. We have steeped ourselves for the last few years in the best possible advice and now is the time to apply it.

Naieve? Maybe so. But now is the time to stay the course.

  1. Wonderful, Steve! I could not agree with you more. Now is definitely a time to remain calm with a clear view of what we want to bring into our future. Thanks for being willing to express yourself publicly and take the criticism which is unnecessary judgment on some people’s part. We should be supportive of each other in these times even if certain points of view are not entirely within our own belief system. But I suppose that taking criticisms is allowing others to express their views too. It’s a tricky business this tolerance thing! I really enjoy your site and find it one of the most balanced ones I have come across. Thank you!

  2. Thank you Steve, I really like what you said.

  3. Surely this is where Passive Awareness is most important?
    Stick to what feels right in our innermost selves in the knowledge that all is as it should be.
    I hope that most readers of this site feel a cool, informed detachment to the maelstrom. We are very fortunate to have the inside story so to speak. This is why it’s vital that we get the word around which, even if people seem disinterested, will prime them for future events maybe.

  4. Steve, even though I have question regarding Obama I respect your belief in him. That in no way affects my respect and gratitude of what you do for us here. Thank you again.


    • It needn’t come between us as people, Silent Wind.

      Thanks for your comment,


  5. I agree with you completely, Steve, I’ve been feeling like we are being tossed around and things seem to come from outside of me, making my life sad, but, I will stay calm, not let them rattle me. I have faith that all will be fine in the end. I am exactly where I’m supposed to be and all is well.

    Thank you.

  6. Steve:

    I agree with what you wrote in your essay.

    We cannot know the pressure President Obama is under from the Illuminati. Until they are removed from power, I believe President Obama cannot accomplish his goals, which are in line with Disclosure, Announcements, NESARA, and Ascension.

    On the other hand, President Obama is human, and concern for his safety and the safety of his family must be constantly on his mind. Even though he now knows he and his family are being protected by the Galactics, he most certainly remains cautious in his actions, and is likely following directions from the Galactics as to what he can accomplish in the present situation.

    Being human, President Obama could opt out of his mission . . . it is possible . . . although not probable. If he does, God will tap someone else to complete the mission, of that I’m sure. We are on our way to Ascension, and as far as timing is concerned, the Universe is always on time. The best advice pertaining to timing is: LET GO AND LET GOD.

  7. Remember what Hatonn said in November’s post about Obama from Suzie Ward? We cant see what is happening behind the scenes. Obama has been under extreme stress and if we knew what was happening we would all be cheering him on.I believe Hatonn and I am cheering on our President we are so fortunate to have. Being judgmental without all the facts should NOT BE WHAT LIGHT WORKERS ARE ABOUT!!!
