You either work with the power of the Divine that yearns to flow through you, or you work against it, obstructing its abundance through self criticism, and judgment of others.

Pace of societal progress; law of attraction; ego, consciousness; Barack Obama; Hugo Chavez; “sides” in controversial issues; lightworkers; densities; legal, economic matters; NESARA
With loving greetings from all souls at this station, this is Matthew. How we wish that you could view Earth from our vantage point so you could see that her tumultuous travels are over and she is in calm waters. Most likely “calm” is not how you would think about your world, but “When are all the marvels of the Golden Age coming?” well may be.
Many civilizations were authorized by God to help Earth reach safe harbor at this point in your linear time, but throughout her ascension process, her residents have been in charge of societal changes. No other civilization may do this on your behalf because Earth is your world and must be the kind of world that you, collectively, want.
Lightworkers, including the souls who don’t think of themselves as such but indeed they are by living in godly ways, managed nobly during the extremely difficult ascension decades. All of you have the greatest admiration and respect of light beings throughout this universe.
And we know how eager you are for the promised glories of the Golden Age to be manifested, so you are distressed because there’s little evidence that they are underway. Actually, a great deal is progressing in numerous areas behind the scenes, and even mainstream media are reporting instances that indicate an encouraging upward trend. Still, huge changes will not come as swiftly as you would like.
You know that everything is energy vibrating at one frequency or another, and because energy is neutral and has no reasoning capacity, it can’t differentiate between what is wanted and what is not. Consequently, as people’s thoughts and feelings shoot out into space, the universe provides individuals with circumstances whose energy matches the energy of whatever they have been focusing on—the law of attraction that’s in constant motion.
But most souls in your world do not know that’s how energy and their innate powers of co-creation work. They’re concentrating on situations that they don’t want to continue, thereby making more of them. Because so many people are sending out the energy of sad, angry and despairing thoughts and feelings about world situations, your society as a whole is affected by the result: the slow pace of change.
Another reason that things may seem to be moving at a snail pace also is due to lack of knowledge. Because most people in your world still are confined within third density’s limited consciousness, they don’t know to ask within, where all truths are known. Without that soul level knowingness, the consciousness processes information from the ego’s perspective; and since the ego supports personal ideas and perceptions, which often are rigidly set, rarely can the ego see a situation from other perspectives or discern between truth and falsehood.
We shall give you an example. We and many other messengers in the light have told you the truth about Barack Obama, a highly evolved soul from a civilization far advanced in spirituality, intelligence and ancient wisdom. The highest universal council asked him to leave his homeland and accept the mission of leading the United States and your world into an era of peace, prosperity and unity.
We have explained that his mission, which transcends politics worldwide, is a provision of the Golden Age master plan that is aligned with Gaia’s vision of Earth’s residents living in harmony with each other and with Nature. Then Gaia’s planetary body and all of its life forms will be in balance, wherein all is light. We have asked you to send light to President Obama because it will hasten the day when that balance is attained.
Also we have mentioned in previous messages that the tenacity of the dark ones caused about a ten-year delay in your progress as a society. The delay didn’t deter Earth’s ascension one whit—her timing was predestined—but it severely curtailed Obama’s ability to carry out his mission because powerful individuals within the Illuminati still had the power to derail, distort or detour his efforts.
A large part of their effectiveness has come from people whose third density perceptions have been sending forth the energy of “anti-Obama” thoughts and feelings. That energy has been refueling the dark ones and enabling them to keep a strong chokehold on the president’s endeavors to move your world toward Gaia’s vision.
It is natural to question why that would include killing, and many feel that Obama’s approval of using drones shows that he is not of the light. That perspective omits this essential element: The drones’ purpose is to kill as few persons as possible while ending warfare as quickly as possible.
Always military forces in Earth’s civilizations have operated within the third density mentality that says eliminating the enemy is a patriotic responsibility and you keep at it until you’ve won. So for millennia both sides in wars annihilated each other, using the most current weaponry. Now that includes drones, which target individuals who are considered the masterminds of terrorism and cause fewer casualties than drawn-out ground battles would.
Indeed it is lamentable that those weapons claim the lives of women, men and children who are not harming anyone. A brutal fact of war is, many civilians are injured and killed along with combat troops—we won’t go into the immeasurable psychic damage experienced by all souls in war zones. Be uplifted by knowing that as hearts and minds continue to open, no soul will want to kill another by any means for any purpose.
We also cite Hugo Chavez, recently deceased president of Venezuela, whom mainstream media in the United States have portrayed as a bad guy who worked against that country’s best interests. What Chavez worked against was the Illuminati’s dark influence in that country, his own and other Latin American nations, and he was quite successful in driving them out of Venezuela.
Chavez was not wrong in thinking that his cancer did not occur naturally. The media under Illuminati control labeled him a “conspiracy theorist” because they have conditioned you to believe that anything with that designation is pure nonsense. Chavez’ determination to rid his country of their tentacles and to improve the lives of those who are down-trodden did not fit with the dark ones’ agenda. They felt that a public assassination could start a firestorm instead of making it easy for them to regain control of Venezuela’s abundant natural resources, and since they had the means to initiate cancer, that’s what they did. His body just didn’t give out nearly as fast as they expected.
We know the truth about these two men whom third density minds perceive at best as controversial figures with political and ideological “pro” supporters and “con” opponents. But by no means are “sides” limited to national leaders—it is the very same in all divisive issues that are besieging your world! The “right” and “left” of any situation keep generating fuel for each other—heated feelings are intensified and the imbalance of stalemates is prolonged.
Consider: Governments with a stockpile of nuclear weapons tell other governments, It’s OK for us to have these but you can’t because we don’t trust you. The governments that are told You can’t are expected to trust the motives of the governments that do have these weapons?
If the most vociferous spokespersons in “have-weapon” countries would meet with equally intransigent national leaders that want to develop them, they could begin to rationally discuss their “unassailable” perspectives. Only by doing so can the sides move forward from their respective positions and reach the common sense conclusion that total nuclear disarmament is the only way to assure that never will those weapons be used.
Especially in the United States, gun violence is a hot controversy. The side that wants to ban sales of specific guns and ammunition is as stubbornly rooted in their view as are those who parrot their “second amendment right” to have all the guns and bullets they want. The two sides need to discuss their differing opinions so they can proceed from the shared desire to lessen shooting deaths.
Neither of those two issues will be resolved overnight, but there will be a starting point in both that ultimately will result in banning weapons of all kinds. Remember, the world you’re still co-creating in linear time already exists in the continuum exactly the way you want it and, as you shall see, your choice is that weapons have no place in Earth’s Golden Age.
Abortion is another issue with widely different views and so are capital punishment and dealing with national economies, unemployment and safe sources of energy.
Because all of those and many other vital world situations are causing serious unrest does not mean that the dark ones still are in charge! Some who defected from the ranks of the Illuminati became lightworkers. Some have died, and those who absorbed enough light during the December solstice to keep their bodies viable either will continue to embrace the light or they will die. However, those who formerly were able to cause widespread havoc have been removed from those positions or their influence is nil.
Civil wars still are raging because both sides wholeheartedly believe their cause is just. In some cases, the necessity of avenging assaults on their ancestors was inculcated in the fighters when they were little children. Equally strong feelings undergird the people who are fighting for freedom from tyrannical rulers, who view the fighters as traitors for destabilizing the country. Other individuals are fighting to keep their concept of religion, however twisted, from being overturned by nonbelievers. Gradually the strident sides in these various situations will be motivated to negotiate and cooperate for mutual benefit.
There are greatly differing opinions of how to govern countries that recently gained independence after a long dynastic reign, but again, there is no darkness in the hearts of the citizens. Simply, self-rule, or democracy, is new and the people are striving to find governing methods that can serve everyone’s best interests.
The most adamant persons on both sides of other issues we’ve mentioned have no dark intentions either. It is not with malice toward those who disagree with them that the people involved are “sticking to their guns,” so to speak. Like all other minds operating at third density consciousness, they are ego-bound by their beliefs and want their side to win at all costs.
Our beloved Earth family, we are not saying that all souls in your world need to have the very same opinion about everything before turmoil ends. What we are saying is that a willingness to listen and comprehend each other’s convictions must precede resolutions to conflicts. And this will come!
Earth keeps rising into the successively higher vibrations that are conducive to lightening—enlightening!—what you call “human nature.” Attitudes on both sides of all issues will change gradually from vehemently contentious to reasonable, setting the stage for the harmonious discourse that will lead to “parts of the problem” becoming “parts of the solution” for the good of all.
This is why you lightworkers are needed every bit as much now as before! The light you generate simply by BEing radiates out into the world and touches all other lives. By steadfastly focusing only on what will enhance life in your world, you expand light in the collective consciousness and hasten the manifestation of Golden Age glories.
Earth’s peoples must let go of the ego’s self-centeredness and often mean-spirited perspective and start living from the heart. LOVE, the most powerful force in the cosmos, is the key to ending the divisiveness, hatred, poverty, ignorance and violence that have kept your world out of balance. Love is the key to peace, abundance, unity of spirit and soul evolvement.
It is logical to wonder: Earth has reached fourth density, so how can it be that most of her residents still are in third? There are two types of density, scientifically speaking. One pertains to mass and the location of a mass— Earth is in the low “edge” of fourth density and will continue ascending until she reaches her destination in fifth.
The other density refers to the evolutionary status of a soul—that is, the level of spiritual and conscious awareness attained, and those two aspects can vary considerably. Some civilizations that are far advanced in consciousness, or intelligence level, haven’t an iota of spiritual awareness.
Earth’s population today ranges from third density through seventh in soul evolvement. Dedicated lightworkers are at fourth spiritually—they are steadily on the spiritual pathway—but some are lagging consciously; they still are working on becoming nonjudgmental, forgiving self and others for perceived wrongs, and getting past guilt, remorse, possessiveness and other feelings that emit low vibrations. The comparatively few souls in fifth and higher densities are those you call Crystal or Indigo or are members of other civilizations living with you.
Now then, we have spoken about the primary factors that are affecting the pace of change in your world, but there are others, too. For instance, all legal matters must run the normal course of your legal and justice systems, and you don’t need us to tell you that those wheels do not turn swiftly.
Some legal situations are economically-based, and switching from the old systems to the new is intentionally coming about slowly to prevent fear and chaos. This far-reaching process includes not only retrieving the Illuminati’s vast stolen fortunes and allocating those monies to the impoverished billions, but also moving to a global economy based on precious metals; instituting banking regulations worldwide; and establishing fairness in trade, tariffs, taxation, wages and salaries.
In this economic vein, NESARA, the acronym for National Economic Security and Reformation Act, is well known in some circles but not necessarily well understood, and no wonder. The US government’s Web site, where NESARA is given the name National Economic Stabilization and Recovery Act, is total DISinformation, and channeled messages from dark entities that claim to be respected messengers of the light also contain falsehoods.
Misunderstandings include the notion that the Act is the entirety of NESARA. How wrong that is! NESARA is no less than world transformation and spiritual renewal—it is the master plan for Earth’s Golden Age.
Also, there are various interpretations of some terminology in messages from light sources, such as “prosperity packages” or similar references to the economic aspects of NESARA. Misinterpretations include a large amount of money given directly to every person on the planet, huge sums given to some individuals for funding specific projects, and everyone’s debts wiped out in one fell swoop.
Part of NESARA does pertain to eradicating usurious interest rates, reducing some loans and eliminating others—in particular, IMF loans—and removing large bank accounts from the Illuminati’s “hold order.” But the economic thrust of the Act is ending the unconscionable disparity between the “haves” and “have-nots” in your world. That imbalance will be rectified as the Illuminati’s illegally amassed fortunes are used to relieve the plight of impoverished peoples as rapidly as possible and put them on firm footing henceforth.
The provision of NESARA that calls for the resignation of the entire US government no longer applies. The act was written more than a dozen years ago when the president was a top-ranking Illuminati—he is among the defectors who became active lightworkers—and almost everyone in Congress was either a member or under the control of Illuminati outside the government. Rejoice with us that this is not the case today!
Mother, for readers who want to know more about NESARA, perhaps why this transformative worldwide plan began as a United States law, please add the date of the message with comprehensive information. [August 13, 2006, Special NESARA Edition] Thank you.
We repeat our many assurances that whatever adversely affects life in your world will cease incrementally. This includes slave labor and oppression of women; unjust laws, policies, regulations and cruel cultural customs; all forms of pollution, from industrial sources, chemtrails and chemicals in food to pornography and mind control, including monstrous portrayal of aliens in entertainment venues; corporate monopolies; homelessness; false imprisonment. Whatever is harmful to you in mind, body or spirit will meet its end as your society continues to rid your world of everything that is incompatible with life in the Golden Age.
All light beings in this universe hold you in highest honor for your unwavering courage, ingenuity, patience and dedicated lightworking. Never have you been alone in your endeavors—all along you have been assisted by universal family members living among you and those in your skies. Until the crews can join you, they’re using their ships’ technologies to assist in the myriad ways we have recounted in previous messages.
Now we say farewell in unconditional love, which always has been and is forevermore.
LOVE and PEACE
The Universes are Gifting a ‘Get Out of Jail Free’ Card
Welcome to Brenda’s Blog
Channeled by Brenda Hoffman for www.LifeTapestryCreations.com
Summary of Brenda’s February 24, 2013 free, 15-minute, channeled “Creation Energies” show at www.BlogTalkRadio.com/brenda-hoffman: You’re becoming comfortable with your emotional and spiritual beings. It’s now time to do the same with your physical being. Many wish to shift to dimensions that do not include a physical body. Your physical body is a gift you have ignored or even disliked for eons.
The title of last week’s “Brenda’s Blog” – her free, weekly, channeled blog for www.LifeTapestryCreations.com: “Feeling Ill? There’s a Reason”
Brenda’s “Creation Energies” BlogTalkRadio.com show and “Brenda’s Blog” contain different channeled materials.”
This week many things are happening to remind you that you are of 3D as well as other dimensions. Even though you have hoped, prayed and meditated to remove yourself from all aspects of 3D, you are discovering this week that such is not possible. Of course, you continue to interact with 3D activities and people. That is expected. But what you are discovering this week is that you are uncovering 3D issues you thought you had left in the past.
Such thoughts are disconcerting to you. Not because you do not believe that such is true, but that you are so exhausted by your efforts to clear your 3D spiritual, physical and emotional issues. You are not a slow learner or a bad person. You are merely cleansing yourself of pieces that remain stuck.
You are clearing issues that have been deeply hidden for eons.
Many of you are proclaiming that you have diligently cleared those issues – that we have even told you that you have done so. And so you have. But as you grow, expand and shift to higher and higher dimensions more issues hidden deep within you are uncovered.
You have cleared much to feel comfortable within the fourth or even fifth dimensions. What you are clearing now is beyond anything we thought you were capable of in this lifetime on earth. You are going beyond extra credit – you are flying through your issues. Of course, you are not feeling at ease about this week’s cleansing, but we are. For we know how capable you are. If you decide to move far beyond what was thought possible in this lifetime – you will. And so you are.
We must tell you why this week is a cleansing of all parts of your being. You have completed the initial clearing of your spiritual and emotional beings. You have started the deep cleaning of your physical being. This week is almost like a “Get Out of Jail Free” Monopoly game card in that the astrological aspects are encouraging you to dig deeper, to clear what continues to be a 3D fear that does not allow you to fully enjoy your new being.
Just as there are different dimensions – you do not yet have words to describe the levels correctly by the way – in descending order from the infinite dimension to 1D, there are also different levels of clearing. Your psychological studies of the past century cleared many fears from this lifetime, as did more nontraditional modalities such as past life regression or visualizations. Once the New Age was introduced, you cleared issues that allowed you to feel comfortable in dimensions beyond 3D. This week, you are able to further clear issues that create a ‘glass ceiling’ for your dimension hopping and studies.
You do not need to use this energy if you do not wish to. You merely need to tell your inner-being that you are tired and wish to remain where you are for the time being or forever. For this week’s clearing may include several very uncomfortable physical elements from deep headaches to diarrhea or similar clearing/cleansing symptoms.
At the same time, the 3D elements that have directed your life on earth for eons will be exposed in a number of different ways. For example, if you have experienced abuse in various lifetimes, this week may see that piece come to the forefront for your review and final clearing. The same with care taking, victimization, financial fears, etc.
Your buttons will be pushed if you are willing to have them pushed. If not, this is the time to tell your inner-being that you have cleared enough for now. You will have opportunities to clear those issues at future dates.
Some of you wish to expedite your transition and that is the gift the Universes are giving you these next few days.
Of course, you can shift the level and speed of your transition at any time. You are in control of your life and the direction of your transition. If you feel too uncomfortable, you merely need to go within and ask if this is what is best for you at this time.
Your outer need to expedite your transition might not be appropriate for your physical being or you may be too exhausted emotionally, spiritually or physically to continue. That is fine. You can stop or change direction at any time.
The only piece no longer possible is a comfortable return to 3D life. Even though you have passed that entrance never to return, you have many other choices and entrances to select. One of which is this week’s clearing of deeply held fears. Fears that do not stop you from transitioning, but do hinder your feelings of bliss – and are probably doing so at this time.
Listen to your inner-being. Travel and clear at the speed that is correct for you knowing that you are of the New Age – an age that allows and encourages you to step beyond your expected boundaries. Just as the Old Age encouraged you to remain within the boundaries established by your others.
You are indeed free. Free to travel at the pace that is correct for you and to select any entrance that feels right at this time. This week’s unusual energies are merely one entrance among thousands that the Universes are gifting you as you move further and further into the New Age. So be it. Amen.

Rabbi Hillel and Jesus knew of each other from around town.
Whats interesting about this is, Rabbi Hillel teaches Gentiles about Judaism with the same story that Jesus uses to teach Jews&Gentiles about Christ.
One day, Rabbi Hillel was challenged by a Gentile. The Gentile challenged Hillel to teach him the meaning of the Torah in the time it took him to hop on one leg. Rabbi Hillel gently replied, “That which your neighbor does to you in hate, do not do back to your neighbor. That is the whole of the Torah. Now go study.”
Brilliant, elegant, kind, and true.
Jesus, on the other side of town, taught the other side of the story when he said, “Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”
At the time Hillel’s version is easier to understand. For at that time, no one really knew how to love your neighbor, because they had yet to learn how to love themselves first….
These two men where teaching two sides of the same golden rule.
From this perspective they are one.
In the Gospel of Mary,
Peter asks Jesus, “What is the sin of the world?”
To which Jesus says, “There is no such thing as sin; rather you yourselves are what produces sin when you act in accordance with the nature of adultery, which is called “sin”. That’s why you grow sick and die. Because you love what deceives you. For this reason, the Good came among you, pursuing the good which belongs to every nature.”
I can’t stop thinking about this passage…
Form this perspective it’s seems Jesus is defining “sin” as karma. “You produce sin when u act in accordance with the “nature” of adultery.”
The nature of adultery being the discordant behavior produced through unloving acts.
The Buddha says the same thing. He says you suffer because of your attachments to the illusion. In other words: “You grow sick and die because you love what deceives you.”
It then occurred to me:
Perhaps Jesus didn’t die for our sins. Perhaps his sacrifice was to show us that love expressed through community breaks our karmic bondage and sets us free.
Thus, any act against the communal good of all beings is the Anti-Christ.
That which deceives you from goodness. Goodness which is in every nature.
Praise to you,
You who appeared to the ancient prophets
and helped them rise to the station of
their sacred calling
so that they could serve the Divine
with courage and loyalty.
Make us all prophets, now.
In times of grave danger
you come with sword uplifted
to cut through the darkness and banish illusion….
Society is in turmoil and the earth is in peril.
Give us the strength and clarity
to effect conscious, loving change
in this troubled world
and inside our own souls.
A Native American proverb suggests that within man are two wolves fighting each other for supremacy. One is good, the other is bad. As the proverb goes, the one that wins is the one you feed the most. Tho I’m beginning to wonder what happens when you feed them both the same amount….
Since I posted this a few days ago some controversy as to the true origin of this story appeared.
Is this proverb truly of Native American origin, or is it some pirated version of a story found in a book authored by Evangelical Christian Minister Billy Graham in his book, “The Holy Spirit: Activating God’s Power in Your Life.” written in 1978?
Billy’s version goes as such:
“AN ESKIMO FISHERMAN came to town every Saturday afternoon. He always brought his two dogs with him. One was white and the other was black. He had taught them to fight on command. Every Saturday afternoon in the town square the people would gather and these two dogs would fight and the fisherman would take bets. On one Saturday the black dog would win; another Saturday, the white dog would win – but the fisherman always won! His friends began to ask him how he did it. He said, “I starve one and feed the other. The one I feed always wins because he is stronger.”
So the question becomes “Did Billy Graham pirate a Native American proverb and modify it for his book? Or, has Billy’s story been absorbed by the Internet and reattributed to the Cherokee….
Honestly I don’t care either way. The function of a proverb is to impart wisdom with a brief and poignant story. As I see it, both versions employ Native American characters to illustrate the point. In this respect, it is a Native American proverb. In either case, the proverb, whether its Cherokee or from Billy Graham, still originates from the North American continent. In this regard, one way or the other, it still makes this a Native American proverb….
So go fuck yourselves.
Dear @BarackObama & @NRA
I’ve been holding back on this a bit, but here’s what I don’t like about the current gun control debate. If we want to deescalate gun violence in this country through more ridged gun control laws, I feel law enforcement should take the lead and stop wearing firearms themselves. You’ll never see a police officer in England wearing a sidearm. The second amendment is part of our system of checks and balances. Right now a civilian’s right to bear arms is a check and balance to our police force that use plenty of firearms. How many assault weapons are in the hands of SWAT teams, FBI, DEA, and ATF agents? Think about it. Furthermore, the majority of gun violence in America is due to handguns not assault rifles. If the government is serious and wants to walk the talk, it needs to mirror it’s sincerity to stop gun violence by disarming police officers first. Otherwise it comes across as an Orwellian attempt to render the populace defenseless. If you want to disarm the public than you must disarm the police force too. I’d like to ask cops how they feel about walking around without a weapon. Not to keen about that I’m sure. Yeah, well there’s a major source is hypocrisy right there. Until all this political posturing includes talk of disarming police, it all smells like bullshit to me. Liberals, and Im one, may not like the fact that civilians can buy all kinds of lethal weapons, but I assure you it’s simply a check and balance to the fact that police officers are allowed to stockpile them as well.
You want to limit the use of firearms and change the Wild West culture of gun violence in America? Start with the Sheriffs and the people will follow. That’s the difference between leadership and hypocrisy.
Int. Gilbert House - Night
Stefan sits on the couch in the Gilbert house watching The National Geographic channel. Tears stream down his face as he tries to suppress his sobs. Just then Elena enters through the front door and throws her jacket over the banister. Stefan quickly wipes the tears from his face and shuts the TV off. He stands, trying to act as tho he’s fine.
Stefan: Hey. You’re back early. Figured you’d still be at the movies.
Elena: The movie was too gory. There was so much blood splattering everywhere my hunger was getting out of control. Had to leave before I caused a scene.
Stefan: What movie you end up seeing?
Elena: The girls wanted to see Leo in Django Unchained.
Elena then notices Stefan has been crying.
Elena: Oh my God, Stefan, are you ok?
Unable to hold back, Stefan begins to sob again as he sinks back on to the couch. Elena crosses over and sits next him, concerned.
Elena: Stefan, what’s the matter? What happened?
Stefan: I’m embarrassed to say.
Elena: You can tell me. What is it?
Stefan: The National Geographic Channel just ran this special on endangered animals. Did you know the Rhinoceros has been poached into near extinction? 700 killed last year alone.
Elena: Wait, what? What are you talking about?
Stefan: The Rhinos are almost dead! All of them! Killed by poachers who sell their horns on the black market to men in Vietnam who can’t get a boner.
Elena: Stefan, what do you mean they can’t get a boner?
Stefan: People believe that ground up Rhino horn taken in pill form gives them sexual power.
Elena: Really? Do you think it works?
Stefan: That’s not the point, Elena!
The point is these beautiful, majestic animals are being poached into extinction over voodoo Viagra! Superstitious supplements!
Elena: I’m confused, Stefan. Since when did you care about the wellbeing of animals?
Stefan: Never! I’m just as confused as you! This is not like me. But NatGeo showed this story about a baby Rhino who’s mother was killed before its very eyes, and I shit you not, Elena, I’ve never heard such a heart breaking sob as I heard come from that baby Rhino. It broke my heart into a million pieces. I haven’t felt like this in over a hundred years.
Stefan composes himself, and looks determinedly at Elena.
Stefan: Elena, something must be done to stop the senseless slaughter of these innocent creatures.
Elena, coldly leans back.
Elena: You’re not gonna get all animal crusader on me are you?
Just then Damon busts through the front door.
Elena: I’m right here, Damon.
Damon sees her on the couch with Stefan, and quickly crosses over to them. Damon then sees Stefan has been crying. His demeanor shifts into compassion.
Damon: Hey brother, what’s the matter?
Elena: Don’t ask.
Damon: What is it Stefan?
Stefan: The Rhinos are almost dead.
Stefan: The Rhinos are almost dead! Poached into near extinction!
Elena: I need a drink. You want anything Damon? Stefan?
They shake their head no. Elena gets up and exits to the kitchen
Stefan: I feel so helpless, Damon. I was watching this special on NatGeo about how animal poaching is killing all the Rhinos and destroying our ecosystem in the process. It made me so damn angry. I want to do something about it, Damon. I wanna see those poachers dead. I wanna kill them all and watch them die a slow painful death.
Damon: Wait. Just slow down here. I’ve never seen you like this before.
Stefan: I know, me neither. I hate myself for it too.
Stefan: Because it makes me feel weak and powerless… Damon. Damon, I need to do something about this. Help me.
Damon sees how serious Stefan is.
Damon: I know someone who can help.
Damon: He’s an actor I just read about. He’s started a foundation to raise money and help spread awareness about these very kinds of problems.
Stefan: What’s his name?
Damon: I forget.
Stefan: Has he been in anything Ive seen.
Damon: I don’t know, but I’ll find out. Look, don’t worry brother. I’ll help you. We’ll figure something out. Together. Even if we have to go to Africa and kill a bunch of poachers to help save the Rhinos.
Stefan smiles. Grateful. Damon smiles back.
Stefan: Thank you Damon.
Damon: Hey, I’m just glad to see your humanity is turned back on. Tho I’m a little surprised it took a baby rhino to do it.
Stefan: Hey, don’t tell anyone ok. I don’t want people thinking I’ve gone all soft.
Damon: Hey, don’t worry about it. You’re secret’s safe with me. Ya big softy.
In the background, we hear Elena sigh a sound of revulsion. She then crosses in the background grabbing jacket off the banister and exits out the front door.
Damon: What’s her problem?
Stefan: I don’t think she likes rhinos.
We fade out.
To be continued…
