My Thoughts and Ideas

News Flash 12.11.14 Introduction

 My Name is Stacy Hill and I live in the beautiful Okanagan Valley in Supernatural British Columbia, Canada.  One of the safest, nicest places to live on earth!

Since February of 2010 I have had to opportunity to spend an inordinate amount of time by myself as I travelled  around North America.  This free time gave me the opportunity to do some research on topics that are timely; connect many dots on issues that impact our lives.  I now have the time to put pen to paper, so to speak, and express my thoughts.

I have followed, with compelling interest all my life Politics, local, national and international: Economics both micro and macro: The Environment and how the earth is coping with mankind or man is treating the earth (not well) : Religion (which is different than a relationship with Jesus) and its control on its followers, plus how limiting and counter productive it is to spiritual things. BUT God really and truly does have it (all of the above) under control . 

These topics Politics, Economics, Environment and Religion interestingly form the acronym PEER.  By learning truth about PEER hopefully it will allow us, you, me and others to prepare for what may lie ahead! 

I have followed closely world events from the recent US election to the Arab Spring, the pending break-up of the EU and the pending US financial Armageddon, and many other events that are going to shape our future, whether we like it or not! 

Make no mistake about it our world as we know it is about to change dramatically.  Some of these changes will be incredibly difficult; some changes may result in the wholesale taking of lives.  On the surface it is a rather ugly and even frightening.    

There is an old Chinese symbol that is one small symbol surrounded by another.  The outside symbol indicates danger and change, the inner symbol indicates new opportunity.   

I recently read an article in Maclean’s 3rd annual “RETHINK issue, 12.10.22.  There was an interesting interview with Brian David Johnson.  Who pray tell is that?  His job is to think….Nice job if you can get it… but think into the future.  He seems to be pretty good at it, as his title is “Chief Futurist at Intel[1]”.  For those of you who don’t know what Intel is, Check this out!  

Brian David Johnson made a very interesting comment in this interview.  He was asked, “Do you like our current dystopian[2] attitude toward the Future?”  This was a part of his response, “You can’t let the future happen to you; you can’t sit back and be passive.  We all, as human beings, personally build the future, whether it be our own, our family’s, the world’s.  We have to own that fact and we need to do something about that!”

I now have a little free time (for how long I don’t know), I have decided to share my thoughts about what I have learned and figured out with some degree of accuracy, (I believe)  Hopefully it will help you effective build your future[3].  I might also help someone, possibly you, understand how interwoven all of the above is…how it will impact your life, how to prepare for these inevitable changes (I don’t know where that will go) but one thing is for certain; “The more information you have, the better off you may be… may be as I have no idea as to the end game other than “GOD WINS”. 

I will try to post a couple of issues each week.  These issues will be not much longer than this edition.I hope you enjoy my meandering and musings!  Please feel free to comment and or start a discussion on the blog. Please forgive any errors in grammer, spelling and/or context…when you write something then profit it on you own it is really easy to miss someting!
