Editors Corner

MastersConnection2020 Newsletter readers are literally watching the skies around the world wondering where will the strange storms and ravaging cyclonic winds strike next? Sky watchers with telescopes are tracking the movement of the rogue celestial body some are calling Elenin, as it aligns with earth and triggers super quakes. Indeed it is an exciting time to be alive.

Have you asked yourself why you chose to be incarnated at this moment in time? What if, in a cosmic sense, this planetary timeline is the BIG EVENT and you have a front row seat? You won the evolutionary jackpot to be born here and now. Let's prepare, lean forward and enjoy the ride together.

This week we bring to a close our series on communication for future times. Teri Simpson calls us to action to implement what we have learned about creating a communication plan with our neighbors to safeguard our home and families now and in times of emergency. We have decided to use the MC2020 Newsletter as a tool to help Masters continue to connect even when cell phones and internet give way to CB and HAM radios. If you are interested in acting as community spokespersons/organizers, please email us your contact info together with your physical location. Email us here. We encourage students from all over the world to participate. Imagine a communication neuronet circling the globe of prepared master-minds.

In this issue we welcome our latest new advertiser, “ Bree” with Titus Will Dealerships. Imagine what a great experience it could be to buy your next car from a fellow RSE student. When you are ready to buy a car, give “Bree” a call. Click here

Check the Community Calendar—I am especially interested in the Mother Earth News Fair this weekend at the Puyallup Fairgrounds.

Next week you will not be receiving the MastersConnection2020 Newsletter. We are taking a week to retool the new website and devote all of our time and attention to launching it two weeks from now. See you then.

Article of the Week
Communication Part 4
Written by Teri Simpson of Optimum Preparedness

How do we use our radios in a cohesive and efficient manner once they are the only form of communicating

You have your neighborhood group. You’ve been meeting on a fairly regular basis so you know each other, how to contact each other and you’ve run a couple of tests to iron out the kinks in your phone calling circle. How long did it take to get one message to every member and have the originating person who initiated the test get a call from the last person? Did you improve on your time during your second trial run?

What? You haven’t gotten that far yet? Or maybe it just seems “kinda dumb” or you’d feel “kinda funny” doing a trial run of a calling circle? It is a hugely telling exercise and well worth the effort. If you won’t do that, what else won’t you do?

Here’s the thing: all of this is out of your regular “box”, out of your comfort zone, for most people anyway. So we can’t let our personality decide what to do, we have to use our Observer. Exercises like this can have a tendency to bring up fear in the personality – to the personality, getting a CB or Ham radio means no regular phones and no cell phones. To the personality this equals “scary” or “bad”, so the ever-helpful (not!) personality will try to get you to postpone taking any action along these lines so it doesn’t have to look at “scary” or “bad”. So we have to just observe what the personality does with this info, and then use our Observer to decide our course of action.

Winds of Change

Severe storms and deadly tornados have been terrorizing unsuspecting, ill-prepared populations all over the world this spring. We have collected a few stories worth reading about the experiences of those under the threat of tornados and first responders to the scene of destruction. Click here
We also have a detailed recounting by an emergency room physician. Click here

As many of our readers prepare for potential disaster conditions, we can learn a lot from the experiences of those who have found themselves staring in the face of nature's most dangerous threats. Follow this link to test your tornado survival I.Q. Click here

Questions remain. Is Mother Nature taking out her revenge on us? Is HAARP the villain of our intrigue? Is an invading comet exacting its toll?

Follow these links and see if you can piece together the puzzle of these turbulent times. This is the website that was shown at the Primary retreat.

Something Worth Knowing
Pruning Tomatoes
By Suzanne Wood of

Last week Suzanne's article taught us how to tell the difference between determinate and indeterminate tomato plants. This week's article is about how to prune the indeterminate plants. I hope you are learning as much about tomatoes as I am. I am expecting an abundant crop of big, red, juicy, flavorful tomatoes this year.

Pruning tomatoes affects the plant health in two ways. Reducing the number of leaves maximizes the efficiency of photosythesis and minimizes the risk of disease.

The goal is to prune the tomato plant so that each leaf presents itself to the sun. The tomato leaf is a sugar production factory. Too many leaves on a plant can rob the fruit of sugar and result in a poor tomato crop.

Your Feedback

Thank you so much!
You guys are fantastic!!!
I’m sure Stephany is proud :-)

Hi you two beautiful entities, I have always loved Mastersconnection - also when Stephanie was still creating it. Now what I love in particular, is the "practical" advice and input, on "how to do", and new creative ideas – be it for toiletpaper, canning cheese, pruning tomatoes, Ham-Radios, etc.etc. – this to me is a great enrichment and I appreciate it very much. I print those ideas out and put them in a folder – where I can look it up when needed! Thank you very much! Also I love the updates, Infos and links from the school and teachings.

I went to a Barbie on Monday and the article (Handling the Issue of Toilet Paper in a UG Situation) was THE topic for the first half hour or so – from folks who had read it, then those that hadn’t but wanted to know all the details… We sat around talking worms and TP, hampers, etc – good ol’ Yelm…. :-D

Thanks for the information about worms and toilet paper. Something I didn’t know but will try it out. I will give you a report in a few months.
