Ending Wars

By Buryl Payne

For hundreds of years people have been fighting wars. Books have been written. Treaties have been written and signed. Treaties have been broken. People still fight wars.

The reasons for starting wars are thought to be race, skin valor, religion, resources such minerals, metals, trees, or food crops. That have ended.

Yet no satisfactory solutions to why there are wars have been found.

That may be because people have been looking in the wrong place. Causes for war are not on the Earth. Russian scientist, Alexander Chizhevsky, observed this over 100 years ago. Raymond Wheeler, professor in the United States, expanded his work to include wars going back to 2500 BC. Edward Dewey validated his data with clear statistical analysis.

Sunspot Peaks and Battles

Wars are often triggered by sunspot activity. Sunspots are accompanied by solar flares, which produce geomagnetic fluctuations if they strike Earth. Some people are sensitive to such tiny magnetic fluctuations. Their brain waves are disturbed and their hormonal system may be thrown off balance. There are more crimes, accidents, heart attacks, aggravation of other ailments, including suicides and psychotic episodes. Wars may start with small incidents of violence and escalate to major battles.

I observed sunspots are formed when two or more planets align with the Sun and therefore they are predictable. See the book: “Planetary Influences” at www.buryl.com under “Books”.

Georges Gurdjieff, an influential metaphysical teacher, explains that war is the result of planetary influences. Over sixty years ago he said:

“When two or three planets pass too near each other, even for a few seconds, tension results. For the planets, the tension lasts perhaps a second or two, but here on Earth, the influence causes people to slaughter one another for several years. People affected at the time feel hatred for one another and feel the need to slaughter each other for some exalted purpose; or to defend somebody or something due to exaggerated feelings of pride and nobility, or to act upon some other unrealistic and manic urge or endeavor. People fail to realize to what an extent they are mere pawns in the game. They believe they are choosing their actions. But in reality, all their movements, all their actions, are the manipulation of planetary influences. The Moon plays a big part in this. It must be understood that neither the president, nor the generals, nor the ministers, nor the parliaments, signify anything or can do anything on the grandiose scale of things. Everything that happens is largely governed from outside and governed either by accidental combinations of influences or by general cosmic laws.”

I have the tool you need to make your own predictions and also have found that sunspot can be reduced by global meditations. For more information see the “Dynamic Solar System” and my book: “The Power of Collective Thought”.


Warring behavior is triggered by the Sun’s activity. The Sun has nearly regular cycles. Wars often occur on the ascending or descending section of the solar cycle. This often occurs at times when Mercury, Mars, or Venus is close to Earth and the Moon moves rapidly from one to the other, producing geomagnetic fluctuations one after another, stirring people up. A typical, idealized Sun cycle is shown below with the possible times wars might start.

The solar activity changes rapidly when wars start (mathematically this would be called the derivative).

Changing solar activity affects brain rhythms and hormone balance in humans, mostly in men. I call it ‘Male Macho Syndrome’ or MMS, analogous to PMS in women, often triggered by the Moon, it is a real condition. War fever is an appropriate term. War fever is infectious. One individual may infect many others.

Dr. Becker found there were more psychiatric hospital admissions during geomagnetic storms. Apparently pre psychotic people sometimes ‘flip out’ during these times. Many political leaders, especially dictators, are more apt to be somewhat psychotic, coming to their positions by murder and violence. Often politicians are more apt to become psychotic due to geomagnetic storms. It seems that one has to be a bit psychotic, anyway to want such a job! There is possibly a remedy. See Chapter VIII in Buryl’s book: “Planetary Influences on the Earth” and in “The Power of Collective Thought” book.

Einstein said: “We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if mankind is to survive.”

The discoveries that wars are caused by planetary positions which cause sunspots which cause geomagnetic disturbances which disturb brain rhythms and hormone balance which can make some people psychotic constitute a new way of thinking.

This is a new manner of thinking of which Einstein might approve

On an evening during the winter holidays in 1988 I was invited to meet friends at a currently vogue disco club adjoining a new upscale hotel in Bellevue WA. We hadn’t been there long when a young man asked me to dance. After a couple of dances, it became obvious that he did not speak English and between the disco beat and the escalating volume of inebriated party revelers, it was impossible to have a conversation. My Spanish was imperfect and I was unfamiliar with Guatemalan colloquial expressions, but was intrigued by the little I had been able to understand.

We stepped into a secluded area which was relatively quiet, and this man began to share an extraordinary story. It seems he had displeased the political party currently in power in his country and he had been smuggled out of the country using his friend’s passport in the nick of time in the middle of the night. He had been pursued by agents sent to kidnap him! Of course, I wanted to know more. At first this story seemed incredible to me but as I asked questions I began to believe he was telling the truth.

I excused myself to gather my thoughts, then returned to my friends who were wondering where I had disappeared to and told them not to worry for me. The drama shared by Francisco Morales, the man from Guatemala had captivated me. I returned to this well groomed, pleasant, intelligent young person aware that he was frightened for his life, in a foreign country left adrift by associates in fear of reprisal from opposing factions in his country. After continuing to speak with him a little while longer, I gave him my phone number and told him to call me in the morning when I would have a Plan of Action for him to carry out. I felt that if he was really sincere, he would call, if not and he was merely looking for a lady friend, I probably wouldn’t hear from him.

By the time he called me the next day, I had contacted the Central American Embassy in Seattle and had information regarding the address of the office to report to and basic immigrant procedure. I gave no details, as I felt this was for Francisco to tell in his own language to people he could communicate with. I drove him to the embassy and when we found the process would take hours he told me to go on; that he felt safe with these people. We kept in touch during the next months and his story unfolded.

He was from a village in the mountains where the Indians were poor, but because his father was a doctor and curandero, (healer), his family was well respected and more affluent then many. He had learned healing skills since childhood, assisting with childbirth, common illnesses and injuries. In school he excelled and showed an aptitude for medicine, so was accepted to medical school in Guatemala City. Los Indios of the country are among the poorest group, as with many countries where the indigenous population has been impoverished over the last 400 years of colonization. Racism is everywhere and although mixed blood people of Spanish and native wealthy members of the old Mayan culture had blended into the ruling class over the centuries, the higher positions in the present government are all held by colonialists’ descendents. During the current civil war, the farmers and small mountain villages suffered the most because trade was blocked by rebels who disrupted transportation and travelers on every level. Many people were left homeless without supplies or income of any kind as they ran from the fighting.

Through personal connections and with fellow students, Francisco set up a small Foundation which assisted children in need. People of means heard about what he was doing and gifted clothing, food, and money. He approached the national broadcasting station to inform citizens about the dire problem, but was turned down for a news interview because the station did not want to become involved in political issues. Government agencies were supposed to be furnishing aid to the population, but were not. After writing letters to the network repeatedly without hearing any response he decided to go personally with photographs showing the reality of poverty and sickness caused by the war. When he asked if he could buy ‘air time’ he was told an amount which was beyond his means.

Meanwhile, an executive of the station anonymously filled out forms which verified the ‘air time’ had been paid for, but actually, gifted to Francisco a 15 minute time slot several times over the period of a month. His appeal was not for money to be sent, but rather that people go to pharmacies and purchase badly needed over the counter medications and supplies to be contributed to the local hospitals and clinics to tend the wounded casualties from the war zones. He and his friends were able to rent a house to collect and audit donated items for the refugees. A clothing manufacturer donated slacks of various sizes for the children; a shoe factory contributed shoes. Simple foods, vitamins, blankets, and jackets were also collected from well wishers. Trucks for transport were loaned for the purpose, and they were able to distribute 5 large truck loads to several locations.

Certain politicians were embarrassed and angered by how much this simple man had been able to accomplish with so little. The more effective his program was, the more notice he received and he unwittingly became a target in the struggle for political control. Even though he had no political ambitions, people were looking to him and his colleagues with real hope for the future. The situation escalated when he was interviewed on national television and talked about companies which had contributed either supplies or funds for his work. Members of the Rosicrucians were among those who had contributed to the cause. Churches throughout the country rose to help.

His father called to remind him of his family obligations, but when he responded strongly that ‘This was something he had to do…’ his father gave him his blessings, saying, “…this is a wonderful thing to do for now”. At the time Francisco was betrothed to a girl of an upper class family, but with all the publicity surrounding his project, her father came to his family to say that they could no longer go through with the marriage because of all the trouble with the government.

One day, Francisco received a call from his father telling him airplane tickets had been purchased for him to leave the country to Mexico City and then the U.S.A. He had 3 hours to escape the Federales who were being sent to put him in prison. The major airport had been alerted to detain him. His brother and a friend had gotten wind of the plot to imprison him and covertly contrived an impromptu escape on the backs of burros down winding mountain trails to a private air field where he was whisked away from the clutches of his adversaries. His best friend who looked like him, exchanged wallets with identification so Francisco could get through customs.

As he was an illegal alien in fact arriving ‘underground’ in the USA, when he reached San Diego, California, he asked for political asylum and took time to apply to Mexico City for a new passport. Since he spoke little English the only work available to him was as a farm laborer. He hitchhiked and migrated with whom ever felt a calling to help him and had eventually arrived in Seattle, WA.

He called me about two weeks later to confirm that temporary lodging and employment had been found for him, as an assistant nurse in a health services facility for Spanish speaking people. He wanted to meet and express his gratitude. I invited him to dinner and we caught up. At that time I passed on to him the name and phone number of the John Bastyr College of Naturopathic Medicine which was the only place I knew of in Seattle where he could further his studies in herbology. There was still the problem of language and he was to enroll in an English class to help him overcome that problem.

Over the course of a year and a half, Francisco Morales shared his life story. He felt more comfortable speaking in Spanish, his second language so I listened very carefully. As he recalled and shared the humble gratitude and simple joy of the children when they received even the smallest gifts, his whole being lit up and overflowed with Spirit. Here was this young man struggling to study medicine in English to return to his country to help people in need. It was a privilege to behold and brought tears to my eyes.

A few months later, we met at Lake Union Park and he demonstrated his cooking ability by broiling salmon steaks. My young daughter was there and we had a wonderful time. The next time I saw him the political strife in Guatemala had subsided somewhat, and his brother had come for him because his aging father was dying. In July 1989, he still had to quietly slip into Guatemala not to arouse the wrong people, but had made it there in time to see his father still alive, then return to the USA much the same way he had the first time. He told me all that had happened and that he would not be able to reside in his own country safely for some time to come. I told him that his life was much too filled with drama for me and I worried for his well being.

When I saw him again in early 1990, he brought me a beautiful bouquet of red and white roses and said he was doing well. He thanked me for my loving kindness to him, which he said had literally saved his sanity and his life. He called me 3 months later very upset to tell me his father had passed away. This was a difficult time for him and he needed somebody to talk to. I listened and calmed him, making helpful suggestions. I wished him luck and gave him blessings for his good work.

That was the last I heard from him.

Excerpt from the Prism Diaries 1988-90

Peace Prayer

Make me an instrument of Your peace;
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
Where there is sadness, joy.

Divine Master,
Grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled, as to console;
To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved, as to love;

For it is in giving that we receive,
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
It is in dying that we are born
To Eternal Life.

– Saint Francis of Assisi



Many people from all over the country and abroad have contacted Metempyrion recently asking questions about interactions with other people and processes they are currently experiencing. Many of us seem to be noticing signs of change that are puzzling and frequently involve frustration and grief. Although the situations vary from finances, housing, problems with family, employees, employers, projects, health, and accidents, they all have one thing in common:


Somehow our perception of the Laws of Physics seem to be shifting. Processes taken for granted in the past are not following the expected norm. People are questioning fundamental standards of conduct. Many of us expect that if we pay for a service we will receive cooperation; commodities that we purchase will be what we thought we paid for. Unfortunately it is as if we have crossed over into some alternative reality ‘beyond the point of no return’, where nothing and no one is what they seem to be.

Those of us who spend time in a reflective mode of thinking are comparing notes to come to a shared realization regarding these disturbing happenings which appear to be occurring more and more frequently. Factors taken into consideration must include the world economy, the boundaries of medical technology, the massive human population concentration in metropolitan areas, and shifts in climate which we are witnessing on a global basis. These facts are obvious and pervasive and therefore, not directly personal.

There is another major factor which is hidden from view and often ignored because as humans, we are all completely involved in the experience. This can generically and collectively be labeled ‘human response’, which hardly explains the complexities of the phenomena. Behavioral responses originate in the subconscious part of the brain and frequently never reach the frontal lobe more rational higher brain, which is where judgment calls between ‘right and wrong’ actions take place.

What are we talking about here? If you are confused by comments and behavior of relatives, friends and strangers in your daily interactions with them, are you the one who has lost touch with reality, or are these people actually seeing and acting from a completely opposite window of perception? This may be discolored by medication or some toxic exposure. After taking the time to audit your own behavioral responses to see if perhaps you initiated the miscommunication, try again to express yourself more clearly. This will have a successful result if the other individual involved is coming from a clear place of desire to cooperate. If the resulting encounter is equally frustrating, then your conclusion must be that some other influence or concealed motivation for bad behavior is involved.

At this point in the situation, most of us are inclined to walk away rather than follow through on further dealings with that person or group. In many instances, this is probably the wiser choice. However, if the situation has become perceived as critical to one’s health and wellbeing, we correctly find ourselves compelled to pursue the cause of the disruptive behavior on the part of the other parties involved.

Frequently personal pride may block an individual from agreeing to cooperate with someone just out of simple stubbornness. This may be a learned behavior through observation of responses among family and community members which causes a negative attitude of refusal about changes of any kind. The person is completely unaware of the problem, because of the surrounding collective mental state of the group as a whole. Creative thinking and commitment can be used by anyone to extricate themselves from continuing a destructive behavior pattern and passing it on unconsciously to descendents.

In a metaphoric context, the challenge to resolve the issue between persons involved, has now become identified as a challenge to survive. Speaking on the level that personal identity is in jeopardy, the personality must step up to the perceived challenge for the sake of justice if nothing more. Now the Ego is awakened to participate and higher logic must be initiated. This higher brain function is one of the gifts defining a ‘sentient being’; one who is self aware and conscious of purpose and responsibility for personal actions. Integrity and a moral compass to guide behavior is an definable trait in many respected individuals. Most ideologies outline a code of ethical behavior within a group and are most helpful when individual members choose to comply.

Defining Homo Sapiens as a sentient species and acknowledging that human nature is in part inculcated by association with others in a society, still the individual Free Will to make decisions is left to the single person. If the behavior does not fall within acceptable norms, there are consequences which are regulated in the forms of laws within a social structure. But what about the deeper underlying influences which gained the power over the individual that caused the bad behavior and disregard for damage to other people in the first place? Perhaps abuse of personal power causes chemical reactions in the brain that become addictive; like an adrenaline rush during aggression.

This distorted behavior becomes contagious, as bad energy is then passed on and ricochets from person to person. Through vulnerability and fear, distraction and concern for personal survival in an increasingly hazardous high density population situation leads to more and more disregard for courtesy and moral behavior among the larger group. People are asking if this is due to military or government activities involving ELF experiments, toxic industrial emissions or something to do with our sun’s cosmic eruptions. It has even been speculated that people are being compelled to self destruct by some off world intelligence.

Supposing any and all of these are possible, the priority course of action remains the same. Self-control of personal reactions to stimuli outside the individual life form is primary to survival. Taking the Natural Law of Cause and Effect into consideration, one’s own behavior must be defined according to Right Action in any situation. Over-reaction out of a sense of panic is common human behavior but is not an appropriate response in most cases. How does one discern what is right action? Sometimes the rage and deceit expressed by the other person comes without any hint of bad intention to warn a person of danger before the actual crime has been committed. We are called upon to shield and defend ourselves spontaneously in the moment.

Confidence in oneself and our own perceptions and decision making functions comes through practice. Now the complexity of human behavior extends exponentially because we must be attentive to both exterior interaction with others and more importantly our own perceptions and inner responses to outside influences. Actually the only thing any of us have control over is our own actions and our responses to the actions of others. Moderation is an important key, and the thinking person may seek a better form of stabilization of a situation, than an immediate strike in kind, again an abuse of power. Violence begets violence is the apropos cliché here. Even if we are talking about a battlefield in the minds, psychic violence can be the most damaging of all. A few common examples which are symptoms of a chronic toxic mental state are listed here:

slander/libel/ lies, setting another person up to fail at a project,
refusal to cooperate after an agreement or truce has been reached,
projection of one’s own deceit by blaming another for the wrong behavior

All of these are tactics used to undermine self confidence and to distract a person from productivity and fulfillment. The questions to ask are: Was this an accident or a mistake on the part of the other person, or was it done intentionally to cause harm? Was this done unconsciously by someone not in-touch with their own motives, or was this done maliciously and consciously by a person fully aware of their own actions? Once the injured party can be sure of the answers to these questions, a right course of action will present itself.

It is a time of testing for the Powers of Light as the Darkness becomes more pervasive. We are all feeling strained from the efforts needed to withstand psychic attacks in numerous forms including constant negative propaganda on radio and TV. Many of us are having to deal with unexpected deceit, anger and violence from people we have trusted who are involuntarily being influenced by this exposure. We feel we are being targeted because our responses and priorities are different from those around us. This is a test of Faith on several levels.

Recently local newspapers here are attempting to focus on uplifting fun community activities instead of war and violence beyond our control. If you find yourself and people near you distracted by the chaos, you need to change your focus and that of others around you if only temporarily. Think outside your usual context. The Shamanic Way teaches that there are ‘Times of Not Doing’ which are as constructive and necessary as times of activity. Sometimes inspiration comes which enhances spiritual growth and personal revelation. The ancient Buddhist practice of meditation is a similar concept that has proven highly successful in maintaining mental and physical health.


The major Planetary Shift anticipated is happening NOW and we are all going to be affected by it in unexpected ways physically, mentally and emotionally. A catalytic incident may be entirely unexpected, like being blindsided by another driver on the road which causes a radical readjustment in thinking as well as spinal and neck realignments to relieve physical pain. Emotional adjustment may be required as part of healing. Let’s reorient ourselves to a different way of living with others in a flexible context. Both interior emotional and mental environments and exterior ever changing factors need to be taken into consideration and factored into any and all behavior.

Realize that the 21st century is going to be different on earth for all of us than what we expected. Outworn paradigms need to be discarded as do old memories which are no longer relevant to our individual progress through life. Follow the golden path through the woods and even as scary and gloomy as they appear; as bazaar and irrational as the characters engaged may be; classic rules of courtesy and respect still apply. As unreal as the environment seems, maintain your integrity and faith to reach your intended safe haven.

We are all on the Planet, which is a finite environment with ecological and hence economical boundaries. In order to continue to thrive here we all need to cooperate for happiness and prosperity. Choose your path wisely with foresight into the future.

Pueblo Dawn Call to announce the Feast

All people awake, open your eyes, arise,
Become children of light, vigorous, active, sprightly.

Hasten clouds from the four world quarters;
Come snow in plenty, that water may be abundant when summer comes;
Come ice, cover the fields, that the planting may yield abundance,
Let all heart be glad!

The knowing ones will assemble in four days;
They will encircle the village dancing and singing songs…
That moisture may come in abundance.

Affirmation to be Said Aloud Three Times

The Light of God Surrounds You
The Love of God Enfolds You
The Power of God Protects You
The Presence of God Watches Over You
Wherever You Are God Is
