The New Age movement is a non-religious Western spiritual movement that developed in the latter half of the 20th century. Its central precepts revolve around "drawing on both Eastern and Western spiritual and metaphysical traditions and then infusing them with influences from self-help and motivational psychology, holistic health, parapsychology, consciousness research and quantum physics" in order to create "a spirituality without borders or confining dogmas" that is inclusive and pluralistic. Another of its primary traits is holding to "a holistic worldview," thereby emphasising that the Mind, Body and Spirit are interrelated and that there is a form of Oneness and unity throughout the universe. It further attempts to create "a worldview that includes both science and spirituality" and thereby embraces a number of forms of science and pseudoscience.
Commentators favoring a naturalistic interpretation of Revelation 8:10 relate it to the last days, seeing Wormwood as a meteor fated to strike the earth and cause environmental calamities. Others, while not specifying a precise method, see in the verse a "personification of something God threatens to do to [His] people when they allow themselves to be deceived by false prophets."
Various scientific scenarios have been theorized on the effects of an asteroid or comet's collision with Earth. An applicable scenario theorizes a chemical change in the atmosphere due to "heat shock" during entry and/or impact of a large asteroid or comet, reacting oxygen and nitrogen in the atmosphere to produce nitric-acid rain. The bitterness produced by the Wormwood Star upon a third of the Earth's potable water could be the Biblical prediction of acid rain from the heat shock of a large comet or asteroid's impact with Earth.
The star Wormwood could also refer to the hypothesised Brown Dwarf of Nibiru or Planet X.
A number of Bible scholars consider the term Wormwood to be a purely symbolic representation of the bitterness that will fill the earth during troubled times, noting that the plant for which Wormwood is named, Artemisia absinthium, is a known Biblical metaphor for things that are unpalatably bitter. One interesting theory is that 'wormwood' merely represents nuclear weaponry. They do poison the water where they are detonated, thus explaining the correlation. Some even point to the Chernobyl disaster as a possible fulfillment of this prophecy, as the name Chernobyl is said to translate to "wormwood."
A scientific explanation for the wormwood star.
The Wormwood prophecy cites a "great star, blazing like a torch". Comets are well known for their blazing tails, due to ionization of their gases by the Sun. Either an asteroid or comet could manifest a blazing tail on their entry into Earth's atmosphere. With respect to a comet's impact with a planet, astronomers have recently tracked the collision of the "Shoemaker-Levy 9" comet with the planet Jupiter and were able to confirm many of their theories.

Those left in the shadow see and know not where the light squares reside nor do they understand what the final and last brings. The day will come that Earth shall be greatly shaken out of it's place, the mountains shall move, the waves shall roar, gravity IS gravity, those who remain attached to the (gravity of the situation) shall stumble and fall. One-1 who understands the (gravity of the situation) knows where they are, what Spirit they have, and where they stand (IS) where they should remain. Good (IS) Good and according to it's works will it receive. Continue doing good works and be wise that you may also arrive at that One-1 and Good Destination.
May the spirit of Love and Peace be with you always!
Yes, I totally agree, its always been about Love and striving, seeking to ask why you're here, what life is about, why does nothing add up? Why? Why? Why? Why do we spend so many billions in aid every year world wide (aside from government) yet the problems only get worse, who is blocking it? Why? This should be the biggest thing we have going, then seek within, ask for Creator/Spirit/and Higher Self/Infinite Self and Family to heal us of our lack of understanding, help us to grow and overcome all the blocks and stumbling blocks within to being Love and helping others, to doing the work we came to do.
How do we procure inner knowing, being in the right place at the right time, OR, protection for our family, OR a real rapid, twinkling of an eye SHFT wherein we never experienced meeting with disaster btu where suddenly home or in a better channel?
By what someone wrote on ATS, just a few days ago and I can't remember who, ARK. Well there are many ARKs, what kind do you want. This kind was: ACTS RANDOM KINDNESS!!!! Love and Give more, always. Seek for the way. Ask to be shown humbly ways to improve and to work with whatever is blinding us, or holding us back. In a recent meditation, I watched on youtube, the woman said to: connect within your heart to whoever is Light and Love to you, Jesus, Budda, Inner/Infinite/Higher Self, Light itself, whatever you see, and connect within, asking for all negative thoughts and all negative around you, this would include influences such as entities, to be removed, healed, transformed. And to sit in quiet contemplation, meditation for 5-15 more minutes.
Be humble, grateful, filled with gratitude. Really shine appreciation for life, gifts, sunshine, love, blessings, providence.
Never judge anyone, love especially those who are poor in spirit. That analogy, that there are those who think the last piece of pie is naturally theirs. And the scripture that says the first will be last, the last will be first. We often read it negative as if to think of a punishment reserved to those who are stealing first base here, they will get humble pie later.
Well really, it was pointed out to me, in a straight forward positive way, its that the parents, the mature ones, serve the little children, and they go first. But we don't blame the little children, we don't judge them for their immaturity, we forgive them and love them. The wiser more mature ones serve the little immature ones, the more naturally greedy ones. One way of looking at it is that we don't expect those rewards on higher levels but will give everything we to others, higher levels of consciousness.
MorningMayan suggested rating things in our lives on a scale of 1-13 on fequency, 1 being murder or hell and 13 heaven or very very high, altruistic. We can always change our lives by putting more and more high frequency, and altruistic behaviors, laughter, and nature into it, and connecting within and seeking our way.
Light as a Feather versus gravity.
