2024-05: Moving and Earth as School

Santa-John’s View from the Bridge
by Santa-John McDaniel

The View from the Bridge is an opinion piece which explores how political, societal, and other changes may impact the future.

Welcome Back, Artists of the World!

As we’ve previously explained, we are all artists who are experiencing life on this magnificent planet we call Earth.

Unfortunately, many around the world are suffering from war, climate change, Earth changes, and so on!  Most believe this is not acceptable!

In response to these events, we all are called to help however we can. We can send help in any way we feel called to — money, time, and prayers.

Then, in addition, send light, love, and pray for the most benevolent outcome for all who are impacted by these transitions.

On the Move Again!

After about two and a half years as residents of Albany, Oregon, the Universe has given us the opportunity to return to school. Can you imagine, an 81 and 76-year-old enrolling in higher education classes? Well, we’re doing it!

This move reminds us that everything in the Universe is in constant motion. If nothing else, every second I’m a second older. Every second, my body’s blood is flowing constantly, feeding nutrition to the cells of my body. (My body is a self-replicating Artificial Intelligence avatar for my soul.)

All this forward movement is unsettling for some. For others, facing the future is an exciting opportunity to manifest a beautiful, peaceful future for themselves and their families.

Side Notes 1 – Psychic Mediums seem to agree that Earth is a school where students, you, me, and every other person on Earth, is here to learn how to manifest. What do you think? Did you manifest your latest meal, life partner; your home; your transportation vehicles, your education and life path????

Side Notes 2 – Shakespeare reminds us that all the world is but a stage – which suggests that we are all actors following some script. Do you agree or disagree?

Side Notes 3 – Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius, known as the Stoic philosopher king, reminds us that death is as natural as birth. Do you know of any cultures that celebrate death as a release from the burdens of life?

In summary, I am here for a limited time. I am here to learn. When the time comes, I will transition off Earth for a while, and come back for more teaching, healing, and learning. How about you?

Psychic School?

As many of you may know, View from the Bridge is a Reader’s Digest version of news from a number of online news sources, legal commentaries, astrologer readings, and psychic medium postings on YouTube. What you may not know is that Holley and I have been doing that since we met. As for me, I was following Psychics with previous wife Judy prior to her transition (death).

In pursuit of exploring more in the psychic community, Holley and I have attended Psychic Fairs held within driving range of Albany, Oregon.

Our Land Yacht

About a year ago we attended a fair at the Linn County fairgrounds, which is walking distance from where our land yacht was parked at the time.

At the fair we were drawn to one display that was offering free Reiki treatments. It turns out we discovered a church that is led by psychic mediums.

This year we joined that church, the HOME Spiritual Center in Salem, Oregon. It turns out they have classes and programs that will assist in our spiritual growth.

If you would like to check out HSC, here is a link – HOME Spiritual Center | Metaphysical Spiritual Center | Salem, OR, USA. Or if you’re in the area some Sundays, stop by, service is at 11 am; free Reiki treatments starting around 10 am.

What is Coming to the View

  • More how to videos. Some updates from the archives.
  • An update to past articles in past issues.
  • Some focus on the future of transportation, EVs in particular. Let’s not forget that starting 1/1/25 all new cars offered for sale in California must be electric.


Everything is a creation of the One-Force. So, if you love God’s creations, be sure to include yourself in that love.

Do not fear the future. It’s being handled by forces much more powerful than any of our latest, greatest weapons.

I ask any politician that asks for my vote, what’s in it for me and my friends struggling through this life. Why should we vote for you? What’s in it for us and the World we live in. Oh, and stop whining, just answer the questions!

For us, just get out the popcorn – watch the show – and vote!

Remember those old movies? Without the villains, you know the Dalton gang, the heroes, i.e. the Lone Rangers, Tontos, and Supermen, would have little to do, boring. Know we have our own crop of real-life villains and superheroes to watch. Be assured we are living in a Halmark movie with a happy ending!

In Short

We know all things work for the good, even though we might not see the good at the time. We also know whatever we plant in this realm we will harvest. Plant corn seeds, harvest corn. Plant fear in others, harvest fear of others. Moral – plant and harvest Love.

For now…Thank you for your attention. Keep in mind that we don’t know what we don’t know. So, don’t take our word for it. Meditate and find what is right for you.

For 2024 and beyond, we pray for peace.

When the power of love overcomes the love of power, we will know peace.
