Politickal Schnarr & Evil

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2018 —> +42˚F / +6˚C & sunny in Ithaca, New York at 3:05 pm.

— Let me start with something a friend blurted out once:

= = = = =

— “There are only two kinds of people in this world. — Angels in Training and Angels in Trouble. … And many of us have one foot in each camp. And quite a few of us are Centipedes…..”

= = = = =

Statue of Liberty Hiding her tears.

“The effects of testosterone poisoning on US Politiks as seen by the rest of the world?”

— And Ideas and philosophies that stuck with me: …

— “A society is judged by the way it treats its most vulnerable and least empowered citizens.”

— “The military model: ‘You get out there and you tell them anything you have to – to get them to do what I ordered you to tell them to do – or you can find yourself facing a courts martial!’ — isn’t just a symptom – it may be the basis of the “Information is power” / “Need to know” culture where the truth has no value as far as those who want to wield power are concerned. Disinformation rules – and only a select few at the top of the authoritarian food chain have a clue as to what “The Truth, The Whole Truth and Nothing but the Truth” actually is.”

— “The social pyramid is a complete illusion. If and when those who have been convinced that they are at the bottom of the delusional power structure refuse to believe that those who claim to be above them are any better than they are, or have any right to tell them what to do, and walk away – The whole thing will collapse in on itself.”

— I intend to Expound on this subject extensively in the next couple days, but right now, I’m at work and something important just came up, so, stay tuned for the rest of my thoughts on this subject.

The Cat Says, “Make The Snow Go Away-“

Saturday, March 17, 2018  —> -10˚C / +13˚F in the dark and clear atmosphere @ 11:11 pm in Atlantic Canada, on Cousin Ricky { Patrick } Conroy’s birthday 🙂 —

Moe

– Moe’s got his nose in the planter where he just finished off most of the cat grass and catnip –

— That’s three and four feet deep waves/dunes of snow outside Moe’s insulated window – Once a day he goes to the door and stares at one or both of us until we open the door, then he stares out at the snow and finally turns, looking heart-broken, with a desperate, “Make it go away-” look and something close to disillusionment behind his sadness, looks like he’s wondering what he needs humans for if we can’t magically make the snow go away and his wonderful green world appear  where it should be – Ya Know?

Moe looking at us.

– One of Moe’s “Make it go away-” looks –

— Moe was called “a cat and a half” by a friend near Ottawa – But that is a lot of fur around a lot of cat there –

Plants on our porch.

– Happy Plants – Basking in sunshine –

— The plants on our porch – patiently wait for warm weather when they can go outside and happily bask in the same sunshine Moe wants around him – but they don’t whine and complain the way he does.

Eslyn in the cat tails at the waterfall.

– Meanwhile – over the border in our game world –

— We had several of us corroborate on how to make a waterfall without a five or six thousand dollar graphics package. ‘Eslyn’ here loves the results.

Eslyn asa Ranger with the falls behind her.

– Eslyn posing with the ‘Exploded Rock Falls’ she helped clean up this evening. –

— About once a day even I wonder if getting this game world up in working order may be too lofty a goal. But then – A fresh face like ‘Eslyn’s ( Who was with us in like, um, 2012 but recently returned – ) shows up and goes, “Oh wow – This is great, I think I can fix your little problem there —” ) and gets it done.

March 9th, 2022 – This World Might Be Going Completely Insane – But Our Plants Are Happy –

– Wednesday –  March 9th, 2022 – -1˚C / +30˚F & cloudy – on – I forgot her name, but she was whatsisname’s girlfriend for a while – and it’s her birthday today – 🙂 –

- Porch Plants Enjoying Grow Light -

– “Porch Plants Enjoying Grow Light” –

— The pinkish sheen to the right of some leaves and pots is from the ‘Grow Light’.

— With so much anxiety-inspiring ‘news’ constantly bombarding us lately – As the Russian Federation’s President seems to be ‘losing it’ — believing randomly murdering Ukrainian civilians is the way he can protect his country – or his egotistic ‘legacy’? –

— And with me wondering if any of the news we’re getting from any side is actually honest — I walked out on our glassed in porch and glanced at the jade plant and felt like it was happily smiling at me.

— An extra 45 minutes of trying to clear my mind meditating this morning probably didn’t hurt either.

February 2022 – and the possibility of catastrophic world threatening events in Eastern Europe

Friday, February 25th, 2022 – 07:01 am in Atlantic Canada. { Corrected a bunch of typos by 08:42 am }

"Stop All War!"

– I can’t take sides on this one – I don’t know enough – I can’t trust that we’ve been told the truth from either side.”

 

{ “Love is but a song we sing – Fear a way we die….” }

 

If there is a war going on between the forces of Light { Love } and Darkness { the Forces of Lust for Power } ––> Those who believe they need power over others in order to assure their survival and prosperity { out of fear and anxiety? } seem to have convinced themselves and each other – that, if they can keep as many others in a state of fear and anxiety as possible, those others become easy to manipulate { they’d call it ‘controlling their ‘underlings’ }.

{ “Poor man wanna be rich. Rich man wanna be King. King ain’t satisfied ’till he rules everything.” }

Edgar Cayce said there have been something like 11 million years of intelligent life on this planet.

How long did we survive before some idiot came up with the idea of ‘Currency’?

The Spiritual Law of Prosperity is not linked to gold or oil or precious gems or anything physical —> It depends on attitude and karma. All other forms of Economics Theory stem from what George Bush { the first } sneered at and called ‘Voodoo Economics’. Those who want you to believe they are the most rich and powerful and therefore should have power over our lives – have convinced us that they are rich and powerful because they were born with superior genes and have seized and held more toys and shiny things than we have – things that they have convinced us are really valuable – They’re not. Those who die with the most toys do not win this game – if it is a game.

{ Gold does have Spiritual qualities when worn in contact with our skin. Various crystals effect us emotionally and/or consciously. Wool and silk can aid us in our meditations. That’s real value. The ability to empower others is another real value. The ability to convince wounded/traumatized people that they have real value and lift their spirits is another real value. Letting other people know that we support each other spiritually, emotionally, intellectually and energetically is real value – and you can call that real spiritual power. Loving people can inspire love in others. Compassionate people inspire others to be compassionate. Empathic people can inspire others to endorse and value empathy. }

There are several universes or dimensions right here. Let’s concentrate on the three that are most important to us in this life. { “What we see as ‘Miracles’ are the laws of the higher dimensions being applied in the lower dimensions.” }

The Material/Physical Universe is where we are.

The Emotional/Astral Universe is the next higher Universe – The size of the Astral Universe has been compared to the Material Universe as being a hot air balloon – with the Material Universe being the comparative size of the hot air balloon’s basket. Evolved humans have told us that we travel into the Astral Universe when we sleep and dream. The higher areas of the Astral Universe a light and bright – the lower regions are dark and unpleasant.

The ‘Higher Intellectual’/Causal Universe is the next higher Universe – ‘above’ or ‘beyond’ the Astral/Emotional Universe. Again, the size differential between the Astral { Basket } to the Causal { Hot Air Balloon } is about the same as the difference between the Physical and Astral universes. Residents who have evolved to the point where they can live in the Causal Universe can materialize anything they want or need.

The ‘normal’ evolutionary progress for our spiritual lives goes ‘up’ from the Material to the Astral and then the Causal – There is something beyond the Causal, but the most advanced individuals that we know of – those who have evolved beyond the Causal – have come back here and told us that it would be counter-productive for them to describe what is beyond that { Causal } level. We have been told that all the Great Masters who have evolved beyond the Causal Level – have chosen to come back and guide us toward our Spiritual Ascension. Jesus, The Buddha, Krishna, and quite a few others who reincarnated as ‘Gurus’ are in this category.

{ I was told that it takes a billion years from the time we are created until we reunite with God beyond the Causal Level. Some of us get there faster, some, who – for instance blow the circuit breakers in their nervous systems through drug abuse and other ‘traps’ – take longer. }

{ “No Spirit can stand to be Negative forever.” }

The ‘baddest’ among us will always find somebody ‘Bigger and Badder’ who will torture and seek to control them.

The Sufis have a term they call a ‘Wrong Crystallization’ which may describe a condition brought about by dedicating too much time and energy to negative pursuits – They go on to say that to overcome a wrong crystallization requires time and suffering. { An alcoholic who caused a lot of pain and doubt in his or her family members and friends will choose to reincarnate as the victim of an alcoholic parent or spouse in order to convince themselves to the core of their being that alcoholism is not the way to improve themselves and/or grow spiritually. }

God doesn’t punish us or condemn us to eternity in ‘hell’ – We choose to live lives that convince us that we would much rather struggle upward than choose the paths that lead us into more and more intense pain and suffering.

{ We may now be going through intense growing pains – not a world ending event. }

This earth revolves around our Sun. The sun revolves around the center of our Galaxy. Our galaxy revolves around the center of the material universe.

There are areas of this material universe where the ‘vibrations’ and/or ‘Gravity’ and/or ‘Other Forces’ – aid or detract from our ability to think and understand ourselves and the – intellectual, emotional, spiritual, social – environments around us.

There are four distinct levels of human consciousness that correspond with the four ‘Ages’ of Earthly life.

These Ages have been described as a ‘Golden Age’ at the top of the scale, a ‘Silver Age’ one step below the Golden Age, an ‘Iron Age’ below the silver and a ‘Stone Age’ at the bottom of the scale.

The Cycle from ‘rock bottom’ – up to the peak of the Golden Age and back down again takes about 26,000 years.

Descending and then ascending through the Rock Bottom Age takes a thousand years. Five hundred years down and five hundred years back up

There is a period of chaos as the planet’s population adjusts between the ages –

We are currently on the upswing – Ascending up through the various ages. Each Age on the upswing takes a longer period of time to play itself out. – The Golden Age lasts the longest, the Silver Age is the second longest, the Iron Age is the third longest and the Stone age is the shortest. Each age lasts the same length of time on the way up and on the way back down.

At ‘rock bottom’ the vast majority of people on this planet could understand nothing beyond the purely physical. We last hit rock bottom around the year 500 AD.

Around the year 1,000 AD we began to rise to the next level. Let me call this next level – the ‘Electric Age’ instead of the ‘Iron Age’ – People on this planet gained the ability to understand that water can move through a sponge – electricity could go through wires { or around them } – and a soul can live inside a human body.

We may now be heading into a very trying period of time as we attempt to reach the next ‘higher’ ‘Age’ – The ‘Silver’ or ‘Magnetic’ Age? – Where most of us on planet Earth should be able to understand that Magnetism can control electricity which can effect physical objects.

I’m not sure about the length of time the Electric Age should last – I’m not sure the normal progression is just a matter of time – or that it is ‘guaranteed’.

Again, I have been told that there is a period of ‘chaos and confusion’ as we move up or down from one age to the next. People born into one age may not be able to stand the vibrations in the next level up or down.

The ‘Golden Age’ will be defined by our understanding of ‘Spirit’ – most intelligent life on this planet will understand why we are here, where we came from, and be in the process of developing the ‘gifts’ of Spirit. Those who can live in the Golden Age will understand that Spirit can control magnetism which can control electricity, which can effect physical objects.

{ Between Rocks and Hard Places. }

The dialog between Krishna and Arjuna might have been literal, or it might have been a parable. The idea of going to war against his friends and relatives may be symbolic of making war on our bad habits and egotistical attachments.

If, like Arjuna, you’re feeling like you have to choose between failing to fulfill your duty to God and your country by refusing to kill those who would kill your virtuous country’s citizens and neighbours – or breaking a major commandment like, “Thou Shalt Not Kill” – which may not have been one of ten commandments in ancient India, but may have been something that all Indians of Arjuna’s Caste or place in society had impressed deeply into their consciousness as they matured from childhood to the age of responsibility.

—> If you’re faced with a heavy duty spiritual dilemma that feels like – ‘anyway you look at this you lose’ – or whatever choice you make will cost way too much… It might help to realize that you’re acting as well as you can without having the ability to understand exactly what God wants you to do – Maybe the best advice you could follow then would be to do your best to please God by acting on what you believe would be the most pleasing to God and dedicating those actions to pleasing God. Sound complicated? It’s part of a real spiritual path.

In the late 1960’s the Boston Globe ran a series of articles in their Sunday Magazine. One article I read was about stages of moral growth. One odd or unique characteristic of moral growth is the fact that people who have graduated to a higher level of moral growth often appear to be immoral or amoral to people who function on a lower level.

The scholarly professor who wrote the book that was quoted in that article delineated six levels of moral growth: Infantile, Toddler, Grammar School, Junior High School, Rigid and ‘Situational’.

At the infant level, whatever feels good IS good. – It’s bad to feel hungry, cold or wet – or be sitting in a mess of poop. It’s good to feel warm and have a reasonably full tummy or have your mother smile at you, hug you, and sing you to sleep.

At the toddler level your parents are the ultimate authorities in your universe – what Mommy and Daddy tell you becomes the laws of your universe.

At the grammar school level your peer group becomes more important than anything else. If your group thinks it’s cool to smoke cigarettes – you want to smoke cigarettes. If your little brother sees you smoking – he’ll be mortified because you’re breaking the rules that Mommy and Daddy laid down. If you tried to live by your parents’ rules instead of adjusting to the rules of your peer group you would probably be targeted for public humiliation. So little brother believes you’re ‘bad’ for breaking the rules that he has to live with and you think your little brother is an idiot/jerk because you have to live by your friends’ rules or suffer a fate worse than death { Humiliation }.

Junior High School? Here’s where ‘My country, right or wrong’ comes in to play. An awful lot of people never grow beyond that.

The ‘Rigid’/’Black and White’ level above ‘My country, right or wrong’ is where some people grow to believe that the ten commandments take precedence over ‘King and Country’ or ‘my country, right or wrong.’ People at this level come to believe that, “Thou Shalt Not Kill” – does not mean, “Thou shalt not kill – unless your King, President, Parliament, or other head of state – tells you to kill.”

At this level people have to face tough criticism from parents, friends, loved ones, and other important people who may believe that the conscientious objectors are gutless cowards – when it actually takes more courage and inner strength to stand on their principals. { “I shall die, but that’s all I’ll do for death.” }

The highest level of morality that the professor listed was ‘situational’ – where someone has dealt with questions like – for instance, “If I don’t take the chance of putting my immortal soul in jeopardy by shooting a mass murderer – am I then at least partially responsible for every murder he { or she? } commits after I refuse to take that chance?” – What would be obviously evil and immoral under some circumstances might be the only constructive moral action to take under other circumstances.

– – – – –

{ In every lifetime we are surrounded by friends and acquaintances from previous lifetimes who will either come into our lives to help us move ‘upwards’ toward Love, Compassion, Mercy, Forgiveness, self control – and all the positive things that bring us closer to God and Heaven; – or help us slide ‘downwards’ into egotism, anger, anxiety, fear, greed, the lust for power, control over others, vengeance, addiction – and negative habits and stuff that leads us away from goodness and light and closer to spiritual ‘darkness’ – and eventually pain and suffering. “God doesn’t want anybody in Heaven who want to be anywhere else.” – We live and learn in a “Free Will Zone” – where a vast Cosmic drama pulls us all into various roles that teach us the lessons that gradually lead us upward and out of ignorance – sometimes through rewards for upward progress, sometimes through pain and suffering that lead us to the realization that we really don’t want to do anything that leads us into more pain and suffering. We form close relationships with lovers and family members – some to help us know that we want to climb the heights toward Positivity, Love, Wisdom, and all the good stuff in life – sometimes to double underline the fact that we don’t want to spiral downward into darkness, pain, regret, fear, and everything negative in life. }

{{ “Egotism is the illusory/delusional state in which the infinite soul believes it is merely the physical body.” }}

{ “Russia versus Ukraine in the year 2022 AD…” }

Putin believes he is protecting the country he loves from forces that want to subvert and destroy it.

Many see this as the Karmic return from the Cuban Missile Crisis. The USSR moved Nuclear weapons to Cuba from which they could hit every target in the USA. That standoff could have resulted into a very catastrophic World War III and destroyed thousands of years of progress on this planet, knocked us back into a stone age. “The next war will either be fought with nuclear weapons or stone axes and clubs,” was a real possibility.

Now the shoe seems to be on the other foot and the USA is trying to move its nuclear weapons right up to the border of Russia. Lets hope and pray the Americans back down gracefully and don’t become the cause for another near extinction event that could knock us into the stone age again.

The Yogi who clued me into the school of Yoga that I joined – asked me on the day I met him, “Why do you think all the great leaders are not here with us now? It’s because they have graduated on to better lives in higher worlds.” This is not the only planet we can live on. There are always at least one planet in every level, every spiritual age that I described above – stone age, iron age, silver age and golden age.

Another friend, who believes he is living the last life he has to live in the material universe, was convinced that he couldn’t use his healing gifts without charging for them – giving the healing away would add to his earthly karma and force him to come back and chance making wrong choices under the influence of beings and forces that are always present down here – and adding more and more earthly Karma that he’d have to work through. Nobody told him that if he dedicated himself to using his gifts to please God, he would not be ‘rewarded’ with any new Karmic debts.

A man living in Switzerland who is reportedly the reincarnation of the Biblical Prophet Enoch { who was probably disenfranchised from appearing in the Christian Bible by those wonderful Romans who rewrote and edited passages in the official Christian Bible to ensure that they would remain in power and continue their way of life – by pretending to be fine, upstanding examples of Christian values – and may have ‘canonized’ false prophets whose messages are in direct contradiction to the messages that Jesus brought us – } has had conversations with higher spiritual beings and one of them told him that, “The Third Reich is alive and well and pretty much in control in Washington DC.” {{ Don’t take my word for this, I did not get that message from an undeniably Divine Source – I read it from a blog posting. }}

—> And the ‘guest writer’ who interpreted several messages that were given to the Swiss person told us that the messages indicate that ‘brain dead’ power hungry individuals in the Pentagon have long believed they should use a first strike nuclear attack on the heads of the government and armies in Russia to ‘Cut off the head of the snake’ – The so-called ‘brain dead’ generals may have been lied to and manipulated by dark forces whose agenda is to keep us from rising above their ability to convince us that we have to remain in the lower reaches of the material universe and never get higher into the more spiritually aware ages. There may be a ‘Cabal’ of disciples of the dark forces trying their damnedest to keep us down.

—> Putin is convinced that fascist/neo Nazi forces are in control of the government of the Ukraine – which he is convinced is corrupt. Russian spies are convinced that their enemies in the Pentagon have been plotting the first strike strategy for decades. They are ready to retaliate for any believable rumor that a first strike against them is imminent by striking against every nuclear facility and missile in Europe. EMPs would take down the European power grid. Nuclear facilities that weren’t obliterated with bombs would not have enough time and power to safely cool down their reactors and there would be Chernobyl type melt downs all around – and unprecedented high levels of radiation would be released – especially in Germany – where most ‘Allied’ nuclear weapons are housed – Germany would become 1,000% deadly to all human and animal life.

—> The best ‘Remote Viewers’ that I know about have been convinced that somehow we get past this threat and, ‘The next Nuclear bomb used in anger’ will most likely go off in Korea, detonated by the North Koreans.

—> We may have avoided a devastating nuclear war started when someone in North Korea might have kicked it off with a nuclear attack against China.

—> There are also rumors that a nuclear warhead could be set off in the middle east in an attempt to avoid something worse than a nuclear war, set off for ‘scientific’ reasons, that will probably backfire and ‘accidentally’ destroy Jerusalem and/or most of Israel.

—> There is evidence in India that nuclear weapons were used in the history we lost when morons burned the Great Library of Alexandria. { There may be other Great Libraries that may or may not be safe from those who want to keep us ignorant so they can control us and keep us down. } { Recently disenfranchised ‘experts’ and political puppets in Egypt may have discovered one of those libraries and kept it hidden out of a miss-applied ‘patriotic’ allegiance to the current lies about the religious and political history of our planet. }

—> Nostradamus told us that some catastrophic events can and should be avoided if enough people on this planet adopt a more spiritually positive attitude toward life and a higher allegiance to loving and serving the human race and all life on this planet.

— I thought I was having trouble concentrating on what I was doing/trying to do while I was meditating a little more than a week ago and this came to me :

— { Some things that would have hit me with a reaction like “Oh, gag me with a spoon-” several years ago feel like glowing revelations while I’m meditating lately. }

= = = = =

— “I breathe the Essence of the Divine —> The Gift of God, the angels and the arch angels.

— I breathe in Pure Wisdom and unconditional Love

— I breathe out my misconceptions, my illusions, delusions and negative reactions to misunderstandings.

— I breathe out the impurities of misled intellect, emotions, ideas, and impressions.

— I breathe out the impurities of heart and mind and body-

— God’s angels and arch angels collect all that I exhale in sacks of pure inescapable light and fly those things down into the Earth where they can be transmuted into cures for diseases, and the stuff that makes all flowers, fruits and vegetables grow –

— I give my carbon dioxide to the plants – which feed on that and give us back oxygen.

— I thank all of Creation that we are able to do this.”

“What you see is Perception, Not the Truth” – Marcus Aurelius.

— Wednesday, January 23rd, 2019 – -12˚C / +10˚F & cloudy in Atlantic Canada @ 11:11 am – & updated @ 4:35 pm Atlantic time = with -8˚C / +17˚F & ‘Heavy Snow’ falling here – according to my weather app. –

Red in the Morning.

– “Red in the Morning” – sunrise in Marysville, January 23rd, 2019 – 7:47 am – Atlantic Time –

— An opening line from the original “Kung-Fu” teevee series that stuck with me all this time: “To learn all there is to know about the good in this world, one lifetime is not enough – To learn all there is to know about evil – one hour is too much.”

—> The Hindu model of the cycles of life in the material world – and they kept knowledge from rumoured golden ages when we on earth may have had technologies that dwarf what we have today – says that at about 500 AD we hit rock bottom in a 26,000 year cycle that effects our ability to think and reason and live – at rock bottom most ‘intelligent’ life on earth could only understand the purely physical. The ‘vibrations’ in that region of the material universe are so dense they make it nearly impossible to use our minds to anything like our full potential.

— In about 1500 AD we progressed to the next level where most sentient life could understand the concept of electricity – electricity could travel through metal like water could travel through a sponge. { So maybe a soul could live inside a physical body? }

— We may be approaching the next higher level – where most of us will understand that magnetism can control electricity and effect the physical aspects of life. { I’m not sure whether human consciousness goes up and/or down through 3 or 4 levels of understanding and ability to perceive and think – The Hindu model says we have seven physical ‘chakras’ or energy centers in our bodies. The lowest one is the sexual center – which actually operates on energy that is higher and finer than some of the higher centers. There is a reason that human beings feel ‘religious experiences’ during and just after sexual experiences – especially when higher emotion, like love, empathy, or appreciation, admiration, and stuff like that is involved. – But human consciousness can almost certainly evolve to the point where we can use our higher intellectual functions to control magnetism and thereby electro-magnetic currents and forces, etc. – The physical center is next up the ladder, then the lower intellectual center – {{ego}} Then the emotional center – {{ Emotions happen faster and at a finer level than ‘academic thought’ – You can’t control your emotions with your ego }} –  Then there’s the higher intellectual center – where creativity and inspiration come through – above that we become aware of ‘super-consciousness’ where ‘saints’ and psychopaths can tune in on ‘spooky interactions at a distance’ and perceive stuff going on in parallel dimensions and either believe they’re losing their minds or cross their fingers and hope they’re experiencing evolution on a personal level. – above that individuals discover ‘psychic’/’spiritual’ powers – like telekinesis and astral travel and all that fantastic stuff that pseudo science calls delusion, because if they haven’t experienced something – it doesn’t exist in their understanding and when their egos are empowered – they have to strike out and convince themselves that anybody who ‘believes’ in that kind of ‘nonsense’ must be delusional at best and psychotic at worst – and probably dangerous. – Dangerous to anybody with a closed mind and shaky grasp of what reality just might be all about. } { When you are fully identified with your sexual center, guess what you want to do? – When you are fully identified with your physical center you probably want to remain at rest forever – When you click in to your lower intellectual center you like to learn and quantify and label and count – When you click in to your emotional center – you want to hug a lot and nurture a lot & you may want to get even with real and/or imaginary slights by people you care about – or anyone who threatens those you care about. — When you click in to your higher intellectual center – you want to know who we are, where we came from, is there a God? Is there life after physical death – do our parents and teachers have any idea what is actually happening here? – And you start to get answers and hunger and thirst for more — When you click into your ‘higher emotional center’ you feel overwhelming love and compassion for all beings and want to communicate with Buddhas and Saints and Sages and Spiritual Masters – and you start by hoping that it is true that all true religious teachers have discovered that the ultimate Truth behind all Religions is constant and all the truly ‘enlightened’ ones agree completely on what Heaven and Earth are all about and the perceived differences between religious teachings come about because that ‘One Truth’ has to be described in terms that people in all the various cultures and levels of understanding can grasp and believe in. —> And there may actually be more and higher levels – but if you haven’t been ‘infected’ with the experience of slightly higher levels – and never had the kind of experience that really opens your eyes and heart and mind – you probably won’t believe there is anything out there or up there – so ‘They’ tell us ‘we can’t get there from here’ and if you try to stay on top of the ocean – you sink – and if you try to sink – you float { Thank You Allan Watts } – and if you spend time and energy trying to see into the Divine before you’re ready, all you’re going to get is frustration – so for now – just believe that unlimited consciousness and immortality in the depths of your consciousness is possible { but a few attitudes and ‘states of mind’ might need to change along the way – and you’ll have to wait and see what all that is like when it happens to you. }

— The last big jump up for those of us in the material universe might come in a couple more thousand years when most of us understand that consciousness can control magnetism, which can control electricity, which can effect physical/material objects. – This would be the fabled ‘golden age’ When the majority of sentient beings on this planet begin to understand what life is all about, why we’re here and what ‘God’ might be all about.

{ This explanation of mine is probably an extremely basic, almost simplistic explanation of what Hindu philosophers and ‘saints’ discovered many thousand years ago, back before Göbekli Tepe days, possibly before Gilgamesh and his gang were here. }

— And the ‘Don’t take anything I say as the Ultimate Truth of all existence – Test it – and see if you can punch holes in it – run it up the flagpole and see if anybody drags it down and burns it – and then try to figure out what their agenda might be.’ – cautionary warning label here could be that no giant steps forward by our whole diverse population can be guaranteed when you add the monkey wrench of free will into that equation. – But without that monkey wrench we just might wither and die spiritually.

— I should quit here, but let me add that the Hindu philosophers have preserved the idea or ‘knowledge’ that the material universe is the lowest and smallest of several dimensional universes, with the ‘Astral’ or emotional universe being the next finest and much larger universe, where many believe we all go when we dream, — and then the ‘Causal’ or higher intellectual universe is that much finer and larger than the ‘Astral’ universe – and those who have progressed to that level can create anything they want to by exercising the power of their minds —> and there is something beyond the Causal universe that we’re not supposed to be able to comprehend until we graduate from the gross, mind-numbing electro-magnetic disturances that rule the material universe. } <— Could this be a decent hypothesis to test and think about and try to prove or disprove? Rumours from the Golden ages hint that science without an open mind is like trying to walk or run with one leg paralyzed.

Sunday, April 8th, 2018 –

Sunday, April 8th, 2018 —>  +3˚C / +37˚F & grey and cloudy @2:19 pm in Atlantic Canada – on Vicki Joyce’s Birthday & Rob Burnett’s birfday, & on this date in 1961 Mom told me that Nancy was on her way 🙂 –

Sunday Morning in Atlantic Canada

– Looking Toward Canada Street – at about 11:00 am this morning –

— Not feeling 100% – pretty good one minute, dull  & blah the next? Should I blame the weather?

— Yesterday I downloaded a newer Bento version and clicked ‘Try it’-  Because the danged thing will not allow me to buy it outright or enter my 35 digit key from the previous version I bought before we moved to New Brunswick — and thereby upgrade to that version without it committing software suicide in 30 days. This new version was a whole lot more user friendly than the previous version, but I’m afraid to upgrade my database because it might render everything useless when the month long trial period is over. ‘Filemaker Pro’ wants me to buy their latest and ‘greatest’ ‘offering’ —>  For a ‘mere’ $1,200.00 per year. —> Apple has died and been replaced by Bill Gates? —>  Schnarr!

— Ya think I’m kidding when I talk about Economic Warfare being waged against everybody?

Life And Death When Nobody Notices –

Life And Death When Nobody’s Looking –

There were feral cats on my two hundred
And fifty mile route through rural upper New York State

– One Night a week, on Fridays
The Weekend Papers came out at midnight
and we, the victims of economic warfare,
had until 8 am to deliver them.

One night, in the middle
of nowhere
I saw a cat
run out from a roadside hiding spot
right under the back wheels of a car
whose driver never saw what happened

– I pulled over and stopped
got out and knelt down beside the cat
Her back was broken
her insides were crushed
from the stomach back

I tried to comfort her, what?
Talk to her – Tell her she was on her way
To the Kitten Happy Hunting Grounds?

– all she wanted to do was crawl away and die in peace
And me, with my human sentiments and sensibilities
hoped I wasn’t scaring her to death while I knelt there and cried

– She tried her damnedest to crawl – drag herself to cover
But she couldn’t move at all

I stayed with her until the light went out in her eyes
And twenty years later I can’t forget that moment

– Can’t stop hoping I didn’t make her final moments in this life unbearable-

I hope she understands.

Ice Chunks –

Friday, March 16th, 2018  —> -2˚C / +29˚F with very light snow falling @ 6:39 pm in Atlantic Canada —

Ice Chunk.

– Let’s see- This monster is like two and a half to three feet long and a foot high – Solid Ice – and weighs about 80 to 100 pounds. –

— Ugh! Good thing Cathi was already scheduled to work from home today. If she tried to drive over the above chunk of ice, which was blocking our driveway where she usually turns to stay in her proper lane on her way out of here. It would either have stopped her dead in her tracks or sliced through any vital cables and/or gas lines, brake lines — thinks like that.

— While I was digging this thing out or the end of the driveway I was thinking it might be poetic justice to launch that sonofagun at the windshield of anybody driving a snowplow on this street. —> Luckily, I’m a writer and I can imagine that as a plot angle in a story and not believe I owed the ‘birty dastard’ who pushed that thing into our driveway the scare of his life.

— & by the way, in this photo the ice chunk is posing atop a three and a half foot high mound of packed cleared snow at the edge of our driveway.

Snow chunks.

– I thought yesterday’s snow chunks were bad. –

— If somebody hit you in the head with one of the above ‘boulders’ of tightly packed snow, it might make you angry. If you head was ‘thick’ enough the chunk of snow would break.

— Today’s monster Ice Chunk could probably kill a healthy adult male human being.

Paw prints in the driveway beside my size 13 boot print.

– On the lighter side, Cathi thinks these paw prints belong to a very small cat. –

— It felt like a waste of space to center that above this.

— Now, it might just be a bit of ugly formatting on my part.

— But, yeah, Cathi thinks those are a very small cat’s paw prints. She worries about a cat that size being outside in weather like we’ve been having lately. – Worries more that it might be homeless and shivering in the dark somewhere.
