Oh Blessed Day


Passion is peace,
and peace is passionate~
 
Dante Alighieri ~ Paradiso
 
(A delayed blog, from March, because things were happening). We had a snowfall last night, and every thing is peaceful outside. But this has been a year of upheaval too, so my message is to help bring people back to the peace of the day. Dante's Heaven was the residence of God, and perhaps we see heaven as a place of peace, that we can escape to from this post apocalyptic world. Yet, as Yeats says in his masterful poem,
 
The Second Coming
 
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity
 
How can we bring the true peace inside our selves? Do we engage, or disengage from the problems of others and the world around us? What does being spiritual mean, any way? 
 
I know I spent rather a lot of time writing about the case of the Murder of Meredith Kercher. It was important to me because it was a promise that I made to her spirit, that I would help. I ended up helping a community of like minded people. That the Italian Supreme Court ruled, in violation of its own principles and a ruling, not yet explained, is a matter for it and the Italian people to resolve.

At what point do people give up on a struggle? It was interesting I decided not to go back to Italy. It was interesting I cancelled, for the first time, my group meditation. A lot of people gave up after this court decision. I didn't, but the question what do I do next, did come up :) Note that I believe we face a crossroads and make decisions that affect future direction every day.

I have been engaging more with people of rationalistic mindset, true. But what began decades ago, has always been following a spiritual path, for reasons not always clear but I was sure about, well this was a part of it.

Sure, there are things we ask and wish for, but when they don't happen, do you just give up on it? That is your decision to make.

I know that when I started one of the first classes in meditation in Toronto in 1971 I came to the attention of ex followers of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and Guru Maharaj Ji (Prem Rawat) but instead of starting another group and temple I said their temple was inside them, and they could follow their spiritual path from wherever they were. Then I left them to go to London, writing books, teaching that we had to work, not just on the spiritual plane, but also the emotional and physical.

Then the many special trips to the US, Iran, UK, and Europe, teaching many thousands. Along the way, you meet the people you must, those you will help and who will help you, and the occasion that shapes future direction. Why didn't I finish my books? Answer: I've already written more than, through the internet and affected and influenced many. Why not a spiritual healing and meditation centre? When the occasion demands it, it will happen.

The woman I found collapsed in the snow is well now. The man I knew with cancer is recovering. The man in a coma, well I hope I meet him one day. And one day, when I am able, I will write my books so others can read and be helped by them. Till then, I help through this medium.

As to the case of Meredith Kercher. I wrote this on March 27, 2015:

Those who think they 'lost', won,
Those who say the 'won', lost.
 
There are many struggles around the world. I was reminded today of the ongoing battle for the soul of the Jewish people. Does their never ending quest for peace end because the Palestinians are denied justice? Environmental degradation. Economic imbalance. Health. Injustice. Relationships that attract karma.
 
You are faced with the total collapse of humanity as radiation from Fukushima, the entering of GMO into the food chain, genetic damage from vaccines, and the poisoning of the water supply, all affect your health. Do you want to give up now? Or do you think somehow you will be OK? What world will you leave your children, or have you given up already? Will you stand around and let others carry that burden?
 
I have met and helped so many of you. But it is still up to you to help me change the world. And the time, finally, is now.

Russian Revolution


Russian Spirituality


I try not to attach too much to any one country. Each country, each region, has its own karma, just as individuals and peoples do. But I was reminded to write my long delayed piece about Russia when I met a Russian December 31st who needed help. I promised her she'd be all right..

There is an undercurrent of spirituality which is part of a country's ethos. It isn't religion vs. materialism, it's the choice we all face in balancing karma vs spiritualism.

I'm going to remind people of a blog I wrote three years ago, October 02, 2011 The Rape Of Europa which is now coming to completion. There, I referred to Vladimir Putin, who said the breakup of the Soviet Union was the greatest natural disaster it had ever faced. I've been watching him for a very long time.. and compelled to write about Russia now as it faces ongoing financial warfare to try to defeat it through economic means what the West cannot do militarily. Europe is foolishly, caught in the middle.

1990 was a very significant year for me. I quit my job to start a full time practice of healing medicine. I had my reincarnation love story Man From Atlan published, and, as promised, it's available for free on my website Man From Atlan . I was offered a chance to open a breakthrough clinical center in Croatia to continue my research into the causes of autism but declined because I saw this happening:

Breakup of Yugoslavia

"During 1990, Communists lost the power to nationalist parties on first multi-party elections held across the country, except in Serbia and Montenegro, where they were won by Milošević and his allies. Nationalist rhetoric on all sides became increasingly heated. In 1991, one by one republics proclaimed independence (only Serbia and Montenegro remained federated), but the status of Serb minorities outside Serbia was left unsolved. After a string of inter-ethnic incidents, the Yugoslav Wars ensued, first in Croatia then Bosnia." (Wikipedia)

Then I went to a medical conference in Spain in early 1991 where I met: 

Eugenia Davitashvili

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eugenia_Davitashvili

http://holisticka-energija.com.hr/en/djuna-davitashvili/

a Georgian healer of Assyrian descent who was the personal healer of  Russian presidents Leonid Brezhnev and Yuri Andropov. She invited me to visit her in Moscow in August 1991 which I declined as well:

Dissolution of the Soviet Union

"On 18 August 1991, a coup against Gorbachev was launched by the government members opposed to perestroika. Gorbachev was held in Crimea while BorisYeltsin raced to the White House of Russia (residence of the Supreme Soviet of the RSFSR) in Moscow to defy the coup, making a memorable speech from atop the turret of a tank onto which he had climbed. The White House was surrounded by the military but the troops defected in the face of mass popular demonstrations. By 21 August most of the coup leaders had fled Moscow and Gorbachev was "rescued" from Crimea and then returned to Moscow. Yeltsin was subsequently hailed by his supporters around the world for rallying mass opposition to the coup." (Wikipedia)

I went to the US instead because it was important; also knowing it would still depend on Americans to change. (Hasn't happened yet) And I kept an eye on Russia, and what it went through since then. Putin helped bring back Russian pride, in spite of all the institutional obstacles that prevent real reform. His horoscope is quite interesting.

Last year was immensely sad. the break up of Ukraine and civil war, downing of Malaysian flight MH17 (I do not believe those who blame Russia, see Malaysian Flight MH17 investigation ) and sanctions and attempts to weaken the country again. It won't work, sorry. Here's a video which explains how Russia will survive:

http://www.veteranstoday.com/2014/12/09/neo-putin-pipeline-moves-and-european-union-stupidity/

The interview with Deputy PM Dmitri Rogozin eased concerns about the direction Russia is taking. Resolving financing issues, becoming fully independent of Western technology, dual development of civilian and defense industry, creating a pool of young researchers and engineers to take over from the previous generation; all that was covered.

The host Vladimir Soloviev was a treat as well, asking the kind of intelligent questions we are not used to on our television networks.

Yes, the military industrial complex can be an engine for renewed economic and industrial growth for Russia, just as it and the space program was an engine for America's.

As Soloviev pointed out, even the US program was based on the accomplishments of German scientists and Russian rocket engine design. Good to see the Russian character is quite capable of coming together in defense of the homeland.

In the US, it appears the opposite. How many young people are now motivated by positive feelings for their country? Quite the opposite, it seems.

"When the most wicked member of a tribe becomes its ruler, and the most worthless member of a community becomes its leader, and a man is respected through fear of the evil he may do, and leadership is given to people who are unworthy of it, expect the Day of Judgment." Islamic Eschatology

This commentary by Russian nationalist philosopher Aleksandr Dugin is also informative:

Letter to the American People on Ukraine

by Aleksandr Dugin

"In this difficult hour of serious trouble on our Western borders, I would like to address the American people in order to help you understand better the positions of our Russian patriots which are shared by the majority of our society.

Difference Between the two Meanings of Being American (In the Russian View)

1. We distinguish between two different things: the American people and the American political elite. We sincerely love the first and we profoundly hate the second.

2. The American people has its own traditions, habits, values, ideals, options and beliefs that are their own. These grant to everybody the right to be different, to choose freely, to be what one wants to be and can be or become. It is wonderful feature. It gives strength and pride, self-esteem and assurance. We Russians admire that.

3. But the American political elite, above all on an international level, are and act quite contrary to these values. They insist on conformity and regard the American way of life as something universal and obligatory. They deny other people the right to difference, they impose on everybody the standards of so called “democracy”, “liberalism”, “human rights” and so on that have in many cases nothing to do with the set of values shared by the non-Western or simply not North-American society. It is an obvious contradiction with inner ideals and standards of America. Nationally the right to difference is assured, internationally it is denied. So we think that something is wrong with the American political elite and their double standards. Where habits became the norms and contradictions are taken for logic. We cannot understand it, nor can we accept it: it seems that the American political elite is not American at all.

4. So here is the contradiction: the American people are essentially good, but the American elite is essentially bad. What we feel regarding the American elite should not be applied to the American people and vise versa.

5. Because of this paradox it is not so easy for a Russian to express correctly his attitude towards the USA. We can say we love it, we can say we hate it – because both are true. But it is not easy to always express this distinction clearly. It creates many misunderstandings. But if you want to know what Russians really think about the USA you should always keep in mind this remark. It is easy to manipulate this semantic duality and interpret anti-Americanism of Russians in an improper sense. But with these clarifications in mind all that you hear from us will be much better understood."

I of course see all this from a different, spiritual view. Just as I appreciate many things about Americans I feel the same way about Russia, its blend of East and West.

From the poetry of Pushkin to the literature of Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Pasternak, Solzhenitsyn, the spirituality of Gurdjieff and the Russian Orthodox church, there is much that influenced and is appreciated by me. 

You have no idea how clearly I see the movement of people and trends. What happens to individuals depends on you, but as to what survives, and wins, then yes I have a keen interest in that.

The American Century is over. The Hegemon will be countered by a Russian/Chinese alliance. Asia is the economic powerhouse that will  rule the world, and Russian natural resources and developing technology will make up the balance.

Americans, already weakened in their body, always will have a choice to turn to spirituality. The Russians, with their church, their spirituality, and Chinese with Taoist/Confucian principles, are already quite ahead in that. 

There is a third power at play, that of Islam, much weakened. Sadly, I do not expect much of Sunni Islam. But Shia Iran and its allies might well make common cause with Russia and China.

Russia still has a long way to go. So does China. It will still be a Russo-Chinese century. And watch Putin very carefully. He has a great power. I hope he will use it wisely.

A Life of Purpose


Chloe, Arune and Raven in the Lake District, 2007

Why are we here? Discovering our purpose requires self-examination, including, of course, the illusions we live by that hold us back. Do what we can to help others, care about the world we leave for our children. Do not fear death. Do not regret anything.

I was sad not to make it to Flight School. That led to Canada.

I spent the first half of my working life not doing what I really wanted to do in medicine, but then got the chance to practice my spirituality.

While there was struggle in some areas of my life I ended up with three great loves and five lovely children, so, I am blessed.

To have children with autism was a challenge, but what I discovered with my research was enough to help hundreds of children, so again, it was an honour to have served.

To remember past lives and the gifts that came with it, not enough unless I could share with others.

We have the ability to heal ourselves.

Knowledge should be free.

You help because it comes from your heart, not for self aggrandizement.

Speak up against injustice. Make a difference.

To find your life's purpose, then first, you must discover your self.

From "astrology for beginners" by Joann Hampar:

Sagittarius ascendant: Outgoing personality and candor that throws people off guard. Your optimism inspires others; you help those who cannot help themselves. Fair-minded, you believe in equality for all. You live life to the fullest.

Capricorn Sun: Leadership qualities, honest and dependable. Your resolve is unmatched.

Scorpio Moon: Your passion for life helps give great success. You can motivate others and effect change. At your best when you channel your strong emotions to help others.

Aquarius Mercury: Processing information at warp speed, but conveying it more difficult. (Sigh, so true) Keen intuition and assessment help avoid problems before they happen.

Aquarius Venus: Humanitarian at heart, you prefer to be part of a bigger plan, group or organization with a purpose. Stir people up in a way that can educate them.

Aquarius Jupiter: Open-minded attitude about religion and spirituality, you embrace all faiths. Talent for innovation opens doors in scientific research. Get along with every one.

Libra Mars: Fair, nothing motivates like injustice. Generally easygoing, quite the warrior once cornered. Will fight to preserve freedom of choice. Relationships require balance between self-interest and self-sacrifice.

Libra Neptune: An idealist. Believes in love and peace. Idealizes those they love, sacrifices to maintain harmony.

Virgo Saturn: Detailed research or scientific study. Work is part of your nature. You tend to worry needlessly. (Who, me? :) Hard to relax.

Leo Pluto: The generation that challenged authority, and because they wanted change, they accomplished it.

Cancer Uranus:  You may have unique insight into the subconscious mind, your instinctive ability to understand emotional complexity enables you to counsel others.

Find who YOU are, and what moulds you, then you will discover your purpose.

Message From A Dove


Message from a spirit guide


My aunt 's sister passed away recently. She'd been suffering for many years. Had her in my special prayers all this time. Thought of her last week then got the news. Always remembered for her lovely smile.

This morning, Saturday November 29, got a very special message. I was washing dishes when a mourning dove thumped into the kitchen window in front of me, then flew off.

From my Pocket Guide To Spirit Animals-Understanding Messages From Your Animal Spirit Guides ~Dr. Steven Farmer: 

Dove: 

Express your love to as many people as possible in words and in deeds, even in small yet significant ways.

The soul of someone who has recently passed is making a smooth, peaceful, and joyous transition.

This is a powerful time of prophecy and clear vision, and now more than ever you're able to glimpse the future.

You're experiencing a spiritual renewal that's the result of a period of intense self-examination and challenges.

This is a good time to stay at home and enjoy your domestic side.

It's important to nurture yourself with loving care.

To my aunt and cousins; our condolences.


But it is still a message for all of you.

God Bless Scotland

From Arthur's Seat, Edinburgh 2007
 
I didn't want to write this until the results were in, but my hope still was, that Scotland would  stay within the union.
 
The results are now in with 55.3% voting NO for the question of Independence and 44.3% voting YES. Congratulations to the people of Scotland in this proud moment. That there was an 85% voting turn out, and, 16 yrs old being allowed to vote, were the amazing notes to this democratic process and the general civility of debate and discussion between both sides was appreciated. Alex Salmond's concession speech brought tears to my eyes when he said we are all Scots men and women and we move forward together.
 
There are other separation movements, like the now much set back Quebec referendums and ongoing noises in Catalonia and the Basque regions of Spain. From a previous life, and a book I wrote 40 yrs ago so my feelings are constant:
 
"Yes, he was a Catalan, he thought. And at school, he had seen the map and heard his teacher say, This is Spain. But though he had been born a Spaniard, he belonged to an even greater world. How small a place must we cling to, he thought, remembering how Catalonia had looked on the map of the world. Can we then go on and say of even smaller things, say, this is my village and I am different from the man in the next village? Our village should declare its independence from the rest of Spain, he said laughingly."
I visited Scotland twice in 2007. Once with my family as we travelled all over including ferry trips to the Isles, and once, when I was helping friends set up a healing center in the North of England but also made a trip to Edinburgh where from the mount known as Arthur's Seat I took this picture looking out over the city and castle. Looking and knowing there still was much ahead for these proud people and history to be made.

I've written about my feelings for this place called Great Britain formed by the Act Of Union 1707 Rule, Britannia
 
but should tell you that my feelings for Scotland from Robert the Bruce's time and The Declaration Of Arbroath 1320 have also, been constant.
 
"For as long as but a hundred of us remain alive, never will we on any conditions be brought under English rule. It is not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting, but for freedom — for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself."
From the Declaration, here, are principles laid down then that define those of us who care for justice:
  1. "Firstly, it set the will and the wishes of the people above the King."
  2. "Secondly, the manifesto affirmed the nation's independence in a way no battle could, and justified it with a truth that is beyond nation and race. Man has a right to freedom and a duty to defend it with his life."
These are the principles that we need to be reminded of, in the time to come, and God Bless Scotland for this reminder.

But I still feel its place is within the Union, for it is in union that we can become whole, if I may use a spiritual metaphor. England has lost its way. I saw that when I was there in 2007. And now, still bombing Iraq and crooks from around the world driving up London housing prices and buying football clubs? A system in which pedophilic networks are covered up? PM David Cameron's speech this morning was just, more of the same, jockeying for stasis.

But the problems are real. Aside from issues of unemployment, a stagnant economy, privatization of public resources and closing down the social safety net, there is a spiritual malaise sad to observe from afar.

With the extreme weather and other reminders being sent your way, I say this: watch out for shocks ahead, if you will not change.

Yet, there is much magic in these British Isles. And, within you.

Hare Krishna, Hare Rama


Hare Krishna
 


 
Hare Rama
 
I've been seeing forward, and reporting the spiritual crisis facing this planet for a long time now. I've seen it in the forms of psychopathy that occurs in ordinary murder as well as in the money class and political leaders, the wars that occur just in time for someone to profit from it, the destruction of our environment, the corruption of society, the fertility crisis and damage to our gene pool, which I hope to continue writing about as long as I live. And, when I am gone, trust me, I will incarnate again to help whoever prays, and asks for help.
 
I've written how I hold 4 meditations a year, and how they seem to coincide with significant events both before and after. No, I do not cause them, nor do I cause death and destruction. You, do, with your blindness and inability to change, to not accept a path of inner and outer peace, the path of spirituality. I am strictly neutral in this process. Karma is karma but I still help. Neutrality is a state of mind, not a policy of non-intervention, see?
 
I am a healer, but, I also teach. And if lessons are needed, then so be it. And as always, I am there.
 
There were a lot of events that took place. The ongoing barbarism of Gaza, civil war in Ukraine (aside: an astrologer said Putin, a Libra would have some sort of reckoning, I thought he would get stronger. My column on Russia will be next)
 
So, my meditation on August 24, 2014, planned well in advance. A 6.0 magnitude earthquake hit the Bay area that day Napa Valley Earthquake and I am grateful no one died, I have friends there, and quite a connection with California. As my readers know, I actually held a meditation in Northridge on January 15, 1994, and when I placed my hands on the earth, felt it move. The 6.7 magnitude Northridge Earthquake hit Los Angeles just two days after. Then, an idiot on Twitter said this to me:
 
Have a good night Ergon. Stay the hell away from Joan Rivers. I like her. Don't send her to heaven just yet.- Sept 03
I wish they didn't do that. Joan Rivers passed away the next day, after complications from a minor procedure. RIP. And now he wants to know if I caused it or claim to have caused it. I first came across her in a Playgirl interview in 1977 where she said "God, I hate the Arabs" then just recently, her callous comments about Gaza, grated. But no, I didn't hate her in turn.

However, and this is where you call it a coincidence or whatever: this gentleman is referring to the death of Terri Schiavo: she was in a coma too, I prayed for whatever was best for her, she passed into spirit. And now, Joan Rivers, and it was a mercy, and she is in a better place. Unlike him.

This is what I do. I help ease the passing into spirit, and the question of what happens when we do, or how to do it, is one of my interests and subjects of study.

Never mind. Death is sad, but just another step in our journey. It is the lack of spiritual knowledge that bothers me, because of the untold harm it causes, but, that's how it is. If something needs to happen to restore balance, it will. Revolutions, earthquakes, personal events.

But there is much that is good, and positive, to report.

Someone who lost a job, found a better one.

A cat was lost, then found again. A message of why do these things repeat themselves?

Mourning the loss of a pet rabbit, a wild hare showed up in our back yard. (Pictured here) It even had the same markings as the one who'd passed! Sorry, that isn't Joan River's spirit (smile) but the same pet, returned again. It wasn't for us, but a message for someone else, received, and hasn't been seen since.

Speaking of hares, they represent fertility, and someone we care for just told us she's expecting again, that from a previous story of how spirits go where they are needed and have the chance to do good. Plus another friend's daughter in the U.K.

In mythology, Krishna and Rama are avatars of God. And what else is mythology but a retelling of the spiritual or religious experience? And hares/rabbits are in the native tradition messages to get away, seek refuge from negative energies.

Seek refuge in God.

Hare Hrishna,

Hare Rama.

WE SURVIVE


Gazan girl, rummaging through the rubble to get her school books
 
What is it that people cannot understand? Because quite frankly, you're all losing the plot. This inhumane attack by satanic monsters on a defenseless population for 21 days and some are still making excuses for this? You should be ashamed. No amount of hand wringing will change what you allowed to happen. Because, make no mistake, until you go on the true spiritual path you do not know what lies ahead of you.
 
It is called wilful blindness, and it applies to all of us. I was reminded recently how I said something 9 years ago and it wasn't done, to sad consequences. The things I've been saying since 1972, all coming true, and it is accelerating.
 
On July 23, 2012, a massive solar storm almost destroyed all the electronics on this planet http://www.forbes.com/sites/bridaineparnell/2014/03/19/massive-solar-superstorm-narrowly-missed-blasting-the-earth-back-into-the-dark-ages/ and you can imagine how we would be if that happened. That it didn't happen was due to divine intervention, but don't think it, or worse, won't happen.
 
I wrote about the psychic impulse some time ago. How the challenge is not, to tune in, but to shut it all out. No, I don't do the psychic thing any more. I don't want to see people or what's going to happen to them, because it is too painful. I don't care to go through the psychic pain of not only feeling the spirits of  the poor passengers blasted out of the sky in the Malaysian jet or the people burned to death by right wing mobs in Luhansk, Ukraine in that horrible civil war begun by the demons that govern us, but, the pain in people that I know.

It is enough to say I help people, then move on. I don't expect people to follow, or believe. Who needs fear to convince?

Just ask your self if you're doing what is right for you. Is this your path, or are you wasting time? Do you have a goal? For quite a period of time, I was where I could make a difference. I will see that through. But, I also have other things to do, so heed my message. If you are not at peace, you're doing something wrong. If there's something you have to do, do it!

But be warned. Your wrong action, your inaction, will haunt you. Listen to the warnings you get.

As I said in my last blog, miracles happen. But you can't wait for it. Make a difference, and I will help those who try.
