Water is life


I am the sailor who sails the sea
Water, the healer
The energy of Water
 
As I write this, peaceful protestors, the “water protectors” of the Sioux nation and supporters from across North America are being attacked with water cannons, CS gas, concussion grenades and “rubber” bullets in Morton County, North Dakota. The local sheriff says they’re trespassing and set off fires. The protectors say they’re protesting the violation of their treaty rights by the Dakota Access Pipeline company which wants to build an oil pipeline across their land. Their slogan, “Water is life”, echoes their concerns about the safety record of the pipeline companies and how a breach can endanger the water supply of 19 million people.
 
The water cannons, in below freezing temperatures, are causing many cases of hypothermia. The people say they started fires to warm themselves. The police say they were “acting in a threatening manner”, yet it is they who’ve set police dogs and attacked them several times over the last months.
 
A woman from New York had her arm almost completely severed by a "concussion grenade". She’s in hospital undergoing surgery, and may lose it.
 
In the meantime, President Obama, who met with Indigenous peoples in 2014 and promised to help them, is at a ceremony in Washington awarding the nation’s highest civilian honor, The Medal Of Freedom, to celebrities like Michael Jordan, Diana Ross and Ellen DeGeneres while ignoring pleas for intervention.
 
The pipeline, supported by Bank of America, HSBC, UBS, Goldman Sachs, Wells Fargo will go on.
 
This reminds me of a story I wrote on January 13, 2011, The Water of Life
When we left Atlan, we looked back one last time at our home. The Blue Planet, so called because it was covered mostly by water. And we flew here to Earth; once again, to a new, blue, planet. 
And when we fled the destruction of Atlantis, we were the sailors who sailed the sea, till we found new homes in other, distant lands. 
When I do my healing I see, once again, our relationship with water. The energies I pick up and cleanse myself with afterwards, are, water. (Fire and Earth and Air and Spirit too, but that is another article on the natural forces, or energies). 
I was reminded recently of how out of balance we are, with water. The number of people who are ill with emotional illness and pain, are out of balance with water. (Cancer is an emotional illness as well, but here I’m only dealing with the energy of water, and our relationship with it). 
If you search for Masaru Emoto’s images of water, you will see the beauty within it. His crystalline pictures are stunning. 
Our connection with the Psychic, or emotional chakras is thrown out of balance and only by exploring those energies can we start our own healing. But I want to speak about water. 
It is no coincidence that Australia and Germany had catastrophic floods recently. The Earth itself is out of balance and has lost its ability to nourish us, but must heal itself.  
Hence, the changes in weather and other disasters in the making. This time last year we had the earthquake in Haiti. The year before that the War against Gaza, another imbalance which is a result of the imbalance within us. 
And then again, the floods in England just after we arrived in 2007. The vision of the Asian Tsunami I had ten years before it actually happened. The visions of more, to come
The earth, like us, consists of water. The weather that affects our food supply depends on the oceans, our climate on the balance between warm and cold ocean currents, and human life, on a safe supply of water to drink. Yet we continue, in our blindness and greed, to exploit and pollute it in a manner that can only be called insane. If there’s one last pristine source of water left, we will want to exploit it for a mining company, or oil sand processing facility, or Coca Cola.  
And we add a known neuro-toxin like Fluoride to our drinking water and pay a ridiculous premium for bottled water. And, after vaccinations, the primary cause of cancer in society is the pollutants we pump into our air and water. As I said, insane. 
But you already know all that. You just don’t know how to fix that. 
There is a river that flows across the Universe. When it hits this planet it will sweep us all away. Don’t fight it, just ride it like a surfer riding a wave. 
Ps: As I write this in June 2011, radioactive waste from the Fukushima nuclear meltdown continues to pour into the Pacific Ocean. This may turn out to be one of the greatest environmental disasters, ever. What will it take to get people to wake up and heal the planet?
 This is why, Trump. Why I said if this is what you need to wake up, so be it. And why I said, the healing begins in 2017. Because you will need to protect the planet. And it starts with water.

Water is life.

What just happened?


I said he'd win.
 
Donald Trump has just won the presidency of the United States. I said he'd win (that didn't require prophetic ability-though that too :)

Still made a point of recording it, just in case.

Hillary will never Apr 17, 2016  

 

And




What's happened is an old fashioned voters revolt. And if the privileged elite were too dumb to see it coming, then, karma. Obama took the trust given to him and betrayed the working class, and Hillary was so vile she made Donald Trump look, the better choice.
 
It is boring to say I told you so, but:
 
 Donald Trump can win the presidency In head to head polls, Americans have made it clear: in an election between Clinton and Trump, Donald Trump will win. On the other hand, the Democrats would most likely win both the presidency and Congress if Bernie Sanders were the nominee.
July 01, 2016:  The corruption of the American Political Process
What matters is that neither Donald Trump nor Hillary Clinton are fit for public office, for reasons listed elsewhere. They are essentially, corrupt, running for office in a corrupted process; already compromised and easily blackmailable by those who care not for the poor and oppressed.
July 25, 2016: Don't give up
Pity America. They might well have a president Trump next year, as the polls show Trump leading Hillary. (But being beaten by Sanders).
And when I saw the millions of battered refugees stumbling across Europe, and abuse directed at them, something..snapped. America no longer has the 'mandate of heaven' to lead the world, and, if chaos be needed, there will be chaos.

It is no longer an American thing. It is a global thing. I've written what you can do to bring about change.

Ravens Return

 
"When people become spiritual again, the White Ravens will return" ~

I was reminded of the lines from Yeats The Death of Cuchulain

“There floats out there
The shape that I shall take when I am dead,
My soul's first shape, a soft feathery shape...”

which pertains to what John Kercher called the White Feather phenomenon in his book Meredith (Hodder, London 2013)

He writes that when he was at his lowest in despair a white feather appeared magically at his feet. Many of Meredith Kercher's friends also had similar visitations, which he believes was his daughter reaching out to comfort him from beyond the grave.

But this post is really about spiritual journey. In the native traditions, the appearance of white animals, especially White Ravens, denote a time when humanity will become more spiritual.

In my Spiritual Journey to the U.S.  I wrote how we saw a White Eagle driving through the Appalachian Mountains, then our son Raven was born in New York,  and my hopes for the American people. While we were there, a White Buffalo was born in Wisconsin, many more since then. That there were many delays and changes since then. What of it? People started to wake up.

There was a time when darkness covered the earth;
the sun had been stolen.
After much searching, Raven found the sun.
With the sun in Raven’s bill, Raven began the long
 journey to return the sun turning white during the
 trip due to the brightness of the sun.

And now, White Ravens have started to appear RARE WHITE RAVENS ARE INCREASINGLY BEING PHOTOGRAPHED ON VANCOUVER ISLAND B.C.

And when people supported Bernie Sanders in his run for the presidential nomination a bird magically appeared.

And when people went to Standing Rock to protest an oil sands pipeline, protect the water and heal the earth a herd of buffalo magically appeared..

Tomorrow, there will be an election, and it doesn't matter who will win, since the solutions will come from us, not them.

It has been prophesied the forces of resistance to change would get stronger, but so, too, those who would bring change.

As I wrote, only those who were teachers and healers would be able to change this world that has been created. Ravens, are beings of knowledge and creation, they are wise and helpful to all; this the message from White Raven.

But going back to Yeats plays, he also refers to Morrigu, the war goddess who gathers the souls of the great warriors and appears in the form of a black raven. Cuchulain says

Her black wing touched me
And all is intelligible..

And as Cuchulain takes on the bird form of the dead heroes,

"There floats out there
The shape that I shall take when I am dead,
My soul's first shape, a soft feathery shape...

And is it not a strange shape for the soul
Of a great fighting man?"

There will be wars and warriors, and the brave men and women who fight to change the future, will be my comrades, and, all will be intelligible...

A Remembrance Of Pier Paolo Pasolini


Just a gentle reminder how dangerous Italy can be, and how often, justice gets swept under the rug for political reasons.

Controversial Italian film director Pier Paolo Pasolini was a poet and public intellectual who hated the direction Italy was taking. He died November 02, 1975 under mysterious circumstances which still are subject to considerable debate.

As we come up to the anniversary of Pasolini's death, it helps to get background.

Supposedly killed by a single killer, a homosexual prostitute, many in Italy believe it was the state that killed him. A 2014 movie Pasolini by director Abel Ferrara starring Willem Dafoe was denied the Golden Lion at Venice's Biennale as Italy found the subject matter, too hot to handle.

Who really killed Pier Paolo Pasolini?

Ed Vulliamy, The Guardian August 24, 2014
Who really killed Pier Paolo Pasolini?
Ferrara says: "I know who killed Pasolini," but will not give a name...Pelosi was convicted in 1976, with "unknown others". Forensic examination by Dr Faustino Durante concluded that "Pasolini was the victim of an attack carried out by more than one person". 
On appeal, however, the "others" were written out of the verdict.
Pasolini's view of a new totalitarianism whereby hyper-materialism was destroying the culture of Italy can be seen now as brilliant foresight into what has happened to the world generally in an internet age. But his critique had been, for months before the murder, more specific. He had singled out television as an especially pernicious influence, predicting the rise and power of a type such as media-mogul-turned-prime minister Silvio Berlusconi long before time.

More specific still, he had written a series of columns for Corriere della Sera denouncing the leadership of the ruling Christian Democratic party as riddled with Mafia influence, predicting the so-called Tangentopoli – "kickback city" – scandals 15 years later, whereby an entire political class was put under arrest during the early 1990s. In his columns, Pasolini declared that the Christian Democratic leadership should stand trial, not only for corruption but association with neo-fascist terrorism, such as the bombing of trains and a demonstration in Milan...
 
 Again, a spine-chilling vindication: these were the so-called "years of lead" in Italy, culminating in the bombing of Bologna station five years after Pasolini's death by neo-fascists working with the secret services, killing 82 people...
So it was that, in the wake of the murder in 1975, those close to Pasolini saw the hand of power behind his killing. It would not have been a first: prominent leftists were often attacked or killed; feminist Franca Rame, who would marry the anarchist playwright Dario Fo, was gang-raped by neo-fascists, urged by the Carabinieri... 
Then, in 2005, the floodgates opened. Pelosi, interviewed on television, retracted his confession, saying that two brothers and another man had killed Pasolini, calling him a "queer" and "dirty communist" as they beat him to death. They frequented, he said, the Tiburtina branch of the MSI neo-fascist party. Three years later, Pelosi gave further names in an essay called "Deep Black", released by the radical publisher Chiarelettere, revealing connections to even more extreme fascist cells tied to the state secret services, saying he had not previously dared to speak, after threats to his family. 
One of Pasolini's closest friends, assistant director Sergio Citti, then came to the fore to say that his own investigations had produced evidence entirely overlooked: bloodied pieces of the stick dumped close to the football pitch, and a witness ignored by the official investigation who had seen five men drag Pasolini from the car...

....

Coincidentally, Pasolini's anniversary also falls on the day UK student Meredith Kercher's body was found in Perugia, November 02, 2007. The twists and turns of her murder case have in many ways also revealed the workings of the Italian deep state, and the unexpected outcome, where even though the courts ruled she had been killed in conjunction with others, only we are now left with a sole killer, like Pasolini, heightens the mystery..

It appears that certain powers in Italy, would not like the Knox/Sollecito case reopened. We have seen that already in the Monster of Florence murder investigations as well. In a country where neither prime ministers, nor judges, nor journalists, nor private citizens, are safe, people must indeed tread very lightly. They must keep silent and accept things the way they are since it's "over".

Kudos, then, to those who would not be cowed.

Flowers Change Spring

 


Flowers Change Spring~
 
One cannot change world 
Thought uninvited  dreams
Flowers change in spring.

Million butterflies 
Create breeze sweep across sky 
A plane, flying by

It is the sunset
Of our shared humanity 
Or dawn, flowers change spring

The Tao Of Trees

 
Our lives are like trees     

We ebb and flow day and night                        

Blowing with the breeze.


 

Be a growing tree

Reaching the brilliant sky

 
Because we are, try.

 
 
 
Sunlight shining down
 
Tree Of Life sustaining us
 
We are heaven, ground.

Don't Give Up


Good Times Ahead
 
A message to Bernie Sanders as the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia opens. Don't Give Up. You Have Friends. (From the Peter Gabriel/Kate Bush song)

A bird landed on Bernie Sanders platform then flew up to the podium in front of him March 25, 2016, in Portland Oregon. It was Good Friday, a nice message. It was a Finch. 
 
"When finches come into our awareness it is a sure sign of ebullient times ahead. Finches are a sparkly omen of high energy and bright days on the horizon. Also, happiness and enjoying the journey."
I know I have certainly enjoyed the journey with Bernie Sanders. I do not know if he will concede or fight to win the remaining superdelegates to his side and win the nomination, but the signs favour him (see below).

Finch Animal Totem Symbolism & Meanings
"The vibrant little finch animal totem is unafraid to express what makes its heart sing. It is an outwardly jovial and upbeat bird with many lessons to teach us. We often find ourselves overwhelmed by negativity in our lives and thus find it difficult to be truly and simply happy. This is where the finch comes in as the dutiful master does for its student. The Finches as bird totems remind us of the important attributes of joy, appreciation, high energy, positivity and optimism, and simplicity.  
They also implore us to be mindful of the Earth’s resources, careful and responsible with our diets, and to add some variety to the mundaneness of daily life. Life is a journey, and we should enjoy all the milestones along the way instead of solely focusing on the end results".
A very spiritual lesson we should all emulate, as those who voted for him lose heart after having supported him for so long, and now, despite all the scandals that have erupted around Hillary Clinton, she might secure the nomination. And yes, they ARE disappointed he's appeared to have endorsed her saying Donald Trump's more of a threat. They don't buy the "lesser evil" argument.

Perhaps he's being a pragmatic Virgo :) but here's what astrologers have been saying about him:
 
 
(This article written Feb. 2016 says his success so far was not surprising given his planetary placements).
Astrologer Pat Paquette: Most major media outlets continue to predict that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will win the Democratic nomination, but Sanders has changed the race, and likely the political landscape, for years to come.The pundits may be falling all over themselves trying to explain why they didn’t see this coming, but for astrologers, the charts tell the story."
I dislike predicting outcomes since they should depend on choices and while I will inform, don't want to influence. I did also write down something a while back but that really is all about potential.

There might well be a surprise when the roll call of Democratic delegates is read out. Or he will continue a political revolution from within the Democratic Party. Pity if he does not end up being nominated, but that will be up to the Democrats and the so-called superdelegates.. They have a knack of shooting themselves in the foot, as selecting the most divisive and least trusted candidate in political history, Hillary Clinton, will prove come election day on November 08, 2016.

Pity America. They might well have a president Trump next year, as the polls show Trump leading Hillary. (But being beaten by Sanders).

Yet I have looked at Bernie's future, and I say this: Don't Give Up.
