(You Gotta Fight) For Your Right (To Party)

Dear Erin,

LET'S be honest. Savannah has a black/white problem. Whenever I want to go downtown for a night out, some black dude starts up shit with me and my boys. It happens every single time and it's ruining our city.


Dear Scott,

I GOTTA be honest with you. I just edited the crap out of your letter, as it was one of the angriest, most racially charged rants I've ever read. I parsed it down to its most basic elements, so you might not recognize this as letter as yours, but it is.

Also, I am not going to try to talk you out of anything you wrote or to change your mind on the matter. As much as I wholeheartedly disagree with you, I respect the fact that your experiences have shaped your perspective of the world. I also acknowledge that I don't have the right to force my opinions on you just because I write some column for The Connect.

Currently, there are a couple of letters in my queue that address the ideas that I am going to present today, but I feel that your comments are much more timely and relevant to what's happening in the world, so let's roll.

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the Ascension process and its role in shifting the Earth from a fearful, warring planet to one of peace and love. That column ("Cancer Sucks and WTF?!" ) talked about the spiritual theory behind the Ascension process. This one will address the Quantum Mechanics involved.

In conjunction with the Ascension process, the Earth is undergoing a physical shift out of the 3rd Dimension and into the 5th. Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200.

The first time I heard this news, I couldn't wrap my head around it. My biggest point of skepticism: What the hell happened to the 4th Dimension?

It turns out that in the course of our planetary shift from the 3rd Dimension to the 5th, the 4th Dimension – which is commonly known as Earth's Ether or Astral Plane – is acting as a sieve that sifts the fearful/warring energy of the 3rd Dimension from the loving/peaceful energy of the 5th Dimension.

I gotta be honest with you, Scott. Every morning, I wake up, think about the prospect of this shift and pretty much ask myself, "WTF?!"

But as time passes and the wars, riots, mass shootings and police violence pile up, the notion of some science fictional type rip in the space-time continuum becomes far less shocking. In fact, nothing really surprises me anymore.

So what does any of this have to do with you and your boys coming to blows every time you head downtown?

Whether the conflicts we are experiencing revolve around our feelings about black/white, gay/straight, Christian/Muslim, Palestinian/Israeli, they are all rooted in the same vibrational frequency – warring energy. And as time goes on, it becomes increasingly clear that the warring energy has to go. I'm not saying that it's your responsibility to single-handedly stop it. I just want to ask you an honest question: Isn't all of this fighting wearing you out?

I ask from a point of pure selfishness, as earlier this year I came to the realization that I don't have it in me to fight anymore. In my case, it wasn't a physical fight, but a tenant/landlord dispute that got ugly. Once this realization struck, I discovered that most everyone I talk to is feeling the wear and tear of all this human conflict.

New Thought leaders don't believe that this collective worn out feeling is a coincidence; they attribute it to the planetary shift from the 3rd to the 5th Dimension.

According to one theory, as of 2015, the Earth now operates in the 3rd, 4th and 5th Dimensions simultaneously. Any moment that you are experiencing the fearful/warring energy, you are having a 3-D experience; anytime you feel loving and peaceful, you are having a 5-D experience; whenever you have emotional or physical purging (like mental or physical illness, confusion, spaciness and other Ascension symptoms mentioned in the previous column) you are having a 4-D experience.

This shift is expected to continue for the next seven years, with the transition to the 5th Dimension being complete by the end of 2022.

If you're curious to learn more, there are lots of people out there with insights on the subject. My favorite is Gregg Braden, a chemist who worked for a Big 8 oil company who teaches about the new frontier of science and spirituality.

In the coming weeks, I will publish two letters that specifically address solutions to help people process the Dimensional Shift and to neutralize Earth's warring energies, but now's not the time or place.

I feel that you wrote me because you wanted your feelings to be heard and acknowledged, not because you were looking for a lecture on solving the world's problems.

So thank you for sharing your letter, Scott. Even though we respectfully disagree, I appreciate your taking the time to write and to help clear these 3-D energies from the planet. Know that I am holding you and everyone you meet in the safest, most positive, loving light.

Your pal,
