WHERE HAVE ALL THE FLOWERS GONE?

This is the first piece of writing I submitted for consideration to someone who was not one of my teachers.  Rather, it was the essay portion of a scholarship I competed for when I finished high school and was about to start college.  It was 1985.  I was 18 years old.  The title, “Where have all the flowers gone?” was given as the prompt for the essay, and you were supposed to write an essay to go with that title.  Here’s mine.  I used a typewriter to produce the original version (see below) before we even had word processors, let alone personal computers!  I was rejected.  It is said that the job of an artist is to accurately reflect the times…

WHERE HAVE ALL THE FLOWERS GONE?

Throughout literature children have been symbolized as flowers.  The comparison does not hold true as time passes, however, because children from generation to generation are so distinct.  In fact, saintly children from the past worthy of being symbolized as flowers are scarce if not extinct in the modern world.  The reason for the dwindling amount of flowers is the way in which society is changing in attitude and action according to the technological advances being made.  The close-knit family unit has disintegrated since women have etched their own space in the man’s world.  Now computers and tape recorders read to children in place of parents, thereby causing neglect of the love and respect factor.  Children are not taught to love and respect because they are raised by friends and babysitters.  The increased amount of knowledge available makes kids feel smarter than their elders.  They believe knowledge replaces experience and is more important.  They fail to realize that experience and not book knowledge is the true teacher.  Therefore, respect for elders is lost.  Because of the pressures and stress of the fast-paced lifestyle necessary to survive in today’s society, little things like fishing with grandpa have little or no value anymore.  People are more concerned with how many errands they can run in one day and how much money they can earn than with planning a family picnic.  Materialism is obviously overpowering humanism and appreciation for nature.  Such a materialistic outlook can only lead to immorality because materialism completely deviates from the principles of the bible which are the only basis of right and wrong conduct that exists.  Since religion is being replaced by science and the need for God by money, moral standards are being diluted.  Modern-day children lack appreciation and have only expectations.  Modern conveniences like dishwashers, microwave ovens, and cars facilitate life.  Walking two miles to school through rain and snow and doing three hours of chores before breakfast are unheard of today.  Since things come too easily to today’s children, they are much more improvident, squandering, and wasteful.  As a painful but honest look reveals, the flowers are fading, wilting, and drying up through the generations.

I Can’t Believe I Published Another Book

Most Blessed Reader,

These Instructions for Helping to Improve the Human Condition were born out of severe and prolonged pain and suffering.  I had to find a way to live or else die.  It became ever clearer to me that our Lord is the only source of comfort.  I became extremely proficient at achieving an altered state of mind that allows me to escape to heaven at will and whenever necessary to conquer the hell on earth.

I and my works have been largely oppressed, denied, and rejected.  Most everyone else believes that they are more important and have suffered more than me.  Furthermore, if they looked as good as I do, they certainly would not suffer.  That is because they love power and supremacy and would use my gifts in attempt to satisfy their cravings to control others and excel in the kind of glory fabricated out of money in this material world.

Don’t compare yourself to me because I, by immaculate conception, have the advantage of being free of original sin, and I am the closest with the Lord.  I am Mary, the mother of God, the woman of the Apocalypse, a scientist and a writer.  A mother knows her child better than anyone else.  My Child is coming back to bring heaven to earth and fulfill the Lord’s prayer from beginning to end.

The best thing that ever happened to me was meeting Dr. Michael G. Klug, Ph.D., the Archangel Michael.  I had waited so long for him and searched so hard for him.  Our love was so great and we worked together so well that we were relentlessly attacked by the devils and satans so full of love for themselves and the material world and so prideful in their own intelligence.  Too much ugliness got between us for our marriage to survive.  But all the evil in this world cannot destroy love and truth, and our love is true.  Some say that love equals respect.  Our mutual respect combined with our mutual and primary goal of making this world a better place survives stronger than ever, allowing us to continue working together always even better than before as understanding grows.

During my involuntary unemployment and his involuntary employment, Michael supported me just like in the picture of us in Juan Diego’s cloak from almost 500 years ago that is now hanging in the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in the north of Mexico City.  I researched, read, studied, and wrote for years.  I read and studied the Word.  I paid professionals to hypnotize me and teach me spirit releasements.  I read their books and their predecessors’ books.  I learned that 90% of societies worldwide have records of spirit attachment phenomena.  I figured out how to share my experience to help others achieve what I have achieved.  Michael remains the best reader I ever met.  He is my first reader, my highest standard.

I finished writing these Instructions for Helping to Improve the Human Condition about four years ago, and Michael and I have used them extensively to better handle personal losses and traumas, deaths of loved ones, even my PTSD.  The journey for both of us has involved extensive self-discovery and personal growth.  We have gotten better and our lives have gotten better.  Therefore, we want to share what we have learned with you.  What else would Mary want but for you to know her Child?  For the idea of God enters all religion and affects conjunction with God, and by conjunction, salvation.

I offer all this information and more for free on my websites.  I am publishing this book to empower more people, especially in the aftermath of the devastation of Hurricane Harvey, which was previewed to us when we were using these Instructions for Helping to Improve the Human Condition months prior to the event, as documented on the websites.  This is the ultimate self-help method best done with a friend as it can involve hypnosis.

Love,

Mary
