Hello family, how are you today? I’ve been better. My cat Amber has something going on with her ear that we have to get checked out. I’ve done all I can for her but the condition doesn’t seem to be getting any better. I dread the thought of taking her to the vet. She’s about 17 years old now and I don’t want them to give me a litany of drugs and bad news like is typical for vet visits for animals her age. She’s the first name on my prayer list today! She gets the benefit of more than prayers. I’ve been trying to use the tools available to me – Quantum Touch, plasma….strong Love energy. All I want is whatever is best for her!
I want to share something with you that I shared with her…you know cats understand our every word! In these past few years I have found myself distancing from her and I realized why, I’m afraid to lose her. The logical part of me knows she can’t stay with me forever such as she is…..this is attachment of the most painful kind! So I haven’t spent the time and given her the attention I used to when she was younger….healthier because I know she’s going to leave me and the selfish part of me just can’t handle it! I feel so weak and ashamed about that! Does this resonate with you? What I’m describing is applicable to any form of attachment… to any person, place or thing.
Life is Suffering and freedom from suffering is losing attachment…..(4 Noble Truths of the 8 Fold Path: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noble_Eightfold_Path)
The Noble Eightfold Path (Pali: ariyo aṭṭhaṅgiko maggo, Sanskrit: āryāṣṭāṅgamārga) is one of the principal teachings of Śrāvakayāna. It is also known as the Middle Path or Middle Way. Its goal is Arhatship. The Noble Eightfold Path is contrasted with the Bodhisattva path of Mahayana which culminates in Buddhahood.
Also called the Eightfold Path of the Nobles, eight concepts constitute the path: right view, right resolve, right speech, right conduct, right livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness and right samadhi.
The Noble Eightfold Path is the fourth of the Buddha’s Four Noble Truths, and asserts the path to the cessation of dukkha (suffering, pain, unsatisfactoriness). The path teaches that through restraining oneself, cultivating discipline, practicing mindfulness and meditation, the enlightened ones stop their craving, clinging and karmic accumulations, and thus end their rebirth and suffering. It is used to develop insight into the true nature of reality, achieve liberation from rebirths in realms of Samsara, and attain nirvana (nibbana).
In Buddhist symbolism, the Noble Eightfold Path is often represented by means of the dharma wheel (dharmachakra), whose eight spokes represent the eight elements of the path.
Looks a little the symbol for the 8 Fold Path I realize this morning!
The dharmachakra (IAST: dharmacakra; Pali dhammacakka; “Wheel of the Dharma“), is one of the Ashtamangala of Indian religions such as Jainism, Buddhism and Hinduism. It has represented the Buddhist dharma, Gautama Buddha‘s teaching of the path to Nirvana, since the time of early Buddhism.[note 1] It is also connected to the Noble Eightfold Path.
We are called to enjoy the people, pets, places and things in our life while they are here and be able to, when the times comes, when they are broken, sick, in misery of one form or another to let them go…..to let “be” what is best for them without obstructing the path of it. Such is the lesson living a life with animals teaches me in shorter and shorter increments. It could make me hard in my heart and not allow any others “in” but no. It is in the passing of one that a space is made for another. Every time we have said good bye to one of our animal family members, there has been a spirit to appear needing the space the vacancy has prepared. This is my only comfort in this and time….lots of time.
Yesterday my friends Stacey Smith (Zen Tala) and Cyndy Morgan brought forth a couple of men to my consciousness that I wanted to share again. For those of you that are regulars, you already know about my love and respect for the late Dr. Wilhelm Reich and the author Erich Fromm. For those of you that have not been here before or are new, I introduce you to one of the greatest men of his time. The Listen Little Man recording is over 3 hrs…..I would encourage you to listen to it like you would a podcast or any book on tape and take the time. You won’t regret it. My alternative goal in highlighting Dr. Reich here is for the personal Empowerment of anyone who would listen…..I wish for your personal liberation and freedom.
WILHELM REICH’S BION-BIOGENESIS DISCOVERIES – EXPERIMENTAL VERIFICATION
In the 1930s, Dr. Wilhelm Reich made reports in published books and research journals, and to the French Academy of Science, on the discovery of a microscopical vesicle of around 1 micron, which appeared as a transitional form between living and non-living substance. Called the Bion, this vesicle could be derived in abundance as a break-down product from the incandescent heating and freeze/thaw disintegration of inorganic materials such as iron dust, charcoal, clay, or ground up rock powder or beach sand, as well as from deteriorating living tissues. Bions, he observed, were charged with a specific life-energetic radiation of blue color, possessed living properties, could be cultured, and also could re-organize into clumps out of which larger and more complex micro-organisms such as ameba or protozoans would arise. He argued this was an additional process in nature whereby new living microbes could arise from non-living or previously alive matter, aside from the known pathways of dormant spores or direct cell replication. Degeneration and rotting of dying plant or animal tissues, where the life-energetic cohesive charge had been lost, or the deterioration of inorganic matter in water, would give rise to bion formation, after which the chemistry and environment of the solutions would determine how far the life-process would go. Reich argued a similar bionous decay process was at work in the human body to give rise to certain microbes, including cancer cells, which resembled protozoans in many ways. The human bio-energy, or orgone energy as he called it, played a fundamental role in the cohesion of tissues and cells. This is not “spontaneous generation” but a specific developmental process with similarities to the works of Bechamp, Bastian and other nearly-forgotten pioneers in biology. Reich’s work on bionous disintegration anticipated such modern findings as the phenomenon of apoptosis, and new observations on unexpected abundant life in deep-sea hydrothermal vents or boiling hot springs, or life-like forms in incandescent-heated meteorites or deep within the Earth’s crustal rock. Reich’s bion vesicles thereby have many similarities to modern archaea or extremophiles, and his work suggests to the field of exobiology, that wherever liquid water exists in the cosmos, abundant microbial life should be found. As one of the earliest natural scientists to engage in open research on the Origins Of Life question, a regrettable ridicule and attack followed his work across Europe and into America. In spite of many replications of his experiments on the bions by a small group of credible scientists, professors and physicians world-wide, a great ignorance and hostility about his work still persists within the mainstream community.
This video was produced in hopes to stimulate more openness, particularly among younger students of biology and medicine. It documents one such replication study, undertaken by Dr. James DeMeo, Director of the Orgone Biophysical Research Lab, and presented as a PowerPoint lecture in 2000 to the Second International Symposium on Pleomorphic Microbes in Health and Disease. A reference list to books and articles are provided in the video, but similar information can be obtained from the weblinks to follow.
The presentation is difficult to fully appreciate in the small format of YouTube, and much of the fine detail (and some of the blue energy-field color around red blood cells) is lost, but this is only an introduction to a complex subject, and it is suggested to view at “double size” to optimize the microphoto images over the text, which remains readable.

Wilhelm Reich Orgone Energy – Documentary
Listen, Little Man! (Wilhelm Reich reading) – 3+ hrs worth listening to if you don’t decide to buy the book instead. I have done both. This message is something us “little men (and women) need to hear” – we are not powerless.
