8 Nov 2018 In the Dark Spaces

This morning, after processing yet another act of terror in this country, I kept my heart centered with love.  This doesn’t feel like a coincidence to be happening again so soon.  It feels like yet another very public distraction from other goings on in our country.  Instead of feeling anger and all the feelings I normally have felt, I choose love.  I choose truth.  I choose justice.  I pray for the greatest most loving good in all of this.  As a friend I once knew chose as his personal campaign, choose love not hate.  (choose love not hate in Simple Gematria equals: 202)

“Why empathy?” Silence. “Why compassion?” Silence. “Why should we care about each other?” No one answered. It wasn’t that we didn’t want to answer, we simply struggled to find the best reasoning for it. Perhaps we had never asked ourselves these existential questions before. Perhaps we couldn’t find an answer that wasn’t trite, naïve, or saturated […]

My thoughts:

What came to me, even before finishing reading this, “Fill the void with love.” This is something I am actively trying to do for myself. When there is a “space” a “gap” a lacking for an answer, put positive energy, love, whatever it is that generates warmth in your heart and makes you genuinely happy in that emptiness before hate, bigotry and all the “ism’s and “ists” go to fill it. When those who don’t know what love is go to fill the spaces, they will find love and may be we will finally start getting to where we want to go as a world. It doesn’t mean forget or denial that bad things are happening, wearing rose colored glasses and such. It’s transformation with love – alchemy of love.

Healer of the Broken Hearted (reblog Rachel Mankowitz post)

Personal stories about what violence like happened in Pittsburgh does to people and communities are not isolated to the point of impact but the radius that spreads from the point of impact. Violence of this magnitude is like the detonation of a bomb or any other form of violence against one, against oneself or the many….it spreads one way or another to us all.  When I read Rachel’s story and message, had to pass it on!  She is a beautiful example of courage and not letting fear determine the course of her life.

My comment to Rachel’s post best expresses how I see this:

“The phrase “staying in the warm space” came to mind reading this. “What do you love the most?” energy is what we were taught to tap into during my Quantum Touch Energy healing training. Pure, unconditional love, which our pet family often teaches us about the best, is what we need to take out into the world to help other see what love looks like. Many people in this world have no idea and so they turn to what they know and sadly that is often hate, bigotry and violence. They were taught this. I’m so sorry you and members of the spiritual world you are part of are having to endure this lesser aspect of human nature. Remember, they are broken. It’s easy to pray and love our family and friends, not so much the broken. I have to remind myself about this each day. Love and hugs to you sweet girl.”

(I’m currently reading A Wind In the Door by Madeline L’Engle and ironically loving your enemies is one of Margaret’s lessons.  When you love someone who seems unlovable, sometimes all that is unlovable ceases to exist to reveal who the person underneath all the hate and darkness truly is…worthy of love.  They always were lovable but their existence, for whatever reasons, made them forget.)

A question I have been asking myself a lot lately, “What brings you joy?”  Do I feel my heart in the center of me radiating warmth and light or has it fallen into my stomach or is it stuck in my throat?  The place of fear or obstruction being the throat most times!  You can consciously move where your heart, your fragment of the sun sits within you with your thoughts, feelings and actions.  You have a personal barometer placed right in the center of you to help you navigate this life.  As my Quantum Touch teacher Carol Lee taught me, “If it ain’t light, it ain’t right!”

*I am learning that 13 has to do with the struggle between our natures whether it is in yourself or the world.   The push and pull, the tipping and rebalancing of the scales.

We had a solidarity service at my synagogue last Sunday, in the aftermath of the shootings at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh. Four synagogues came together in one building, and by the time Mom and I arrived, twenty minutes before the service started, there was no parking left. People had to stand along the sides of the sanctuary after all of the seats had been filled. The clergy of all four synagogues led the service, with readings by the rabbis and songs by the cantors. There was an enormous amount of crying, but I couldn’t cry. The music was beautiful. The presence of clergy from all of the local Christian denominations was meaningful (the local mosque was planning another service for the following day). But the words didn’t reach me. I just wanted to find comfort, and to feel something, but I couldn’t feel anything.

Maybe if I…

28 Oct 2018 Stay in Love

28 Oct 2018 – message that came through for me today and I’m passing it along, “stay in love.”  The way it came to me was with sunshine at the end.  People close to me call me that sometimes.  A loving message to pass on in lieu of recent tragic events in our world.

Power is a force exerted. Love is a power only when expressed. The power of love is potentially transformative and when expressed is kinetic; transformation occurs because of love’s movement; through the power of love, the universe is both effected and perfected. Love is infinitely available and infinitely created.

From what is coming to me through my own personal journey, it is unresolved differences that are at the root of my own personal problems.  It is when I have turned to love to face them, instead of resentment, anger, hate, fear and violence,  I have begun to find healing within myself.  I have found some semblance of inner peace.
When I look at our shared history it is riddled with unresolved differences and it is layers of this “unresolvedness” that is passed on generation to generation.

25 Oct 2018 Blind Creator (Blade Runner 2049)

Yesterday it rained most of the day and I wasn’t feeling very well.  A good stay inside sort of day.  This morning we’ve had a slight break in things.  I got out back to visit our adorable neighbor Buster (a tiny Yorkie) through our shared fence.  He has peeked at me through the fence as long as we’ve known each other lol.  Now he has a gap wide enough so I can give him some attention and tell him how clever a boy he is.   He reminds me of Kyle’s parents much larger Yorkie and my Aunts little guy Tex.  Such sweet dogs!  His “Dad” is a very good neighbor.

23 Oct 2018 neighbor Yorkie Buster peeking through fence Alvarado TX DSC_0184

After time with Mr. Buster,  I had a thought I’ve had many times when I am listening to music and close my eyes, run my  hands through the air.  The thought was triggered by finally seeing Blade Runner 2049 the other night.  Kyle bought it along with Covenant (Aliens) and Beyond (Star Trek) at the Game XChange in Burleson (http://www.gogamexchange.com/stores/texas/burleson/).   I’ll be honest, we were disappointed with both Covenant and Blade Runner.  The original films are so ingrained into us that anything else just doesn’t have the same impact.  Blade Runner is my favorite science fiction film, one of Ridley Scott’s finest films in my opinion.  Kyle would say the original Alien is the best lol.  They are both really good lets just say!

There is a character, Niander Wallace  (Jared Leto) that as soon as I saw him made me think of Jesus.  He had the look of the Christ that has been painted and put before us through time.  Niander had to use technology as his eyes.  For those of you that have seen the movie, you know this character is a complete polar opposite to the Jesus of the Bible.   Niander was a Christ devoid of feeling or care for his creation.  They were a product.  They were expendable….a means to an end.

What has come to me many times is that what we see with our eyes is often a trick and deception.  Not quite a magic trick but close.  We focus on what we want to see and that is what we see even if their is tangible evidence that what we are seeing isn’t really there.  We just want it to be.   I think we are all guilty of this in one way or another be it politics, religion, sports, movies, music or other platforms where human beings are placed on the pedestal meant for God.

From what I’ve been able to figure out for myself, God doesn’t need eyes or a body to see….that’s what all of creation is for.   How else can God (energy) be everywhere at once?  This is why no one truly gets away with anything in the end.   You don’t have to have eyes (of your own) to “see” when you are God.

16 Oct 2018 Silence

Sometimes there are few if any words that come readily to mind when you are in the process of being frozen.  When you feel paralysis of character setting in.  When you feel like no matter what you say or do really matters that much in the scheme of things.   When you watch people get away with things they shouldn’t.  When you watch people say things they don’t mean.  When you have lost faith in yourself and the world around you.   When you realize too many of your thoughts and words have slipped to a darkened corner.  Then is a time for silence.

My only true comfort is knowing  in the end, those who profit from misery will not inherit the earth, they will feed it.   We all do.

22 Sept 2018 The Crossroads

Hello to you.  We are getting lots of rain this morning!  I opened the back door to let the dogs out and army worms and other creatures were clinging to it lol.  I am grateful for the water.   This morning the phrase crossroads and the subsequent message came to me.   I was curious to see what it would calculate in the Gematria calculator and 1775 was there which is a significant date in American and British history.  We’ve got a lot of “stuff” going on right now in this world.  Stuff that we are using to divide us instead of unite us.  How do we find a way to respect our individuality as countries, as family,  while still remaining united as a world.   This has always been and will remain a challenge for as long as we allow it to be.

Revolutionary War

The Revolutionary War was an insurrection by American Patriots in the 13 colonies to British rule, resulting in American independence.

The Revolutionary War (1775-83), also known as the American Revolution, arose from growing tensions between residents of Great Britain’s 13 North American colonies and the colonial government, which represented the British crown. Skirmishes between British troops and colonial militiamen in Lexington and Concord in April 1775 kicked off the armed conflict, and by the following summer, the rebels were waging a full-scale war for their independence. France entered the American Revolution on the side of the colonists in 1778, turning what had essentially been a civil war into an international conflict. After French assistance helped the Continental Army force the British surrender at Yorktown, Virginia, in 1781, the Americans had effectively won their independence, though fighting would not formally end until 1783.

I saw this article as I glanced at the news this morning.  So sad!  These people are still trying to recover from Hurricane Matthew.  I have seen several articles asking for donations from the public to help the victims:

https://www.forbes.com/sites/kellyphillipserb/2018/09/16/helping-out-after-hurricane-florence-where-what–how-to-donate/#529229597c55.

Where is the North and South Carolina  government in all of this?  Fighting.  Where is the Federal government in all of this?  Fighting.  Where are the people?  Drowning.  Living in rotting and flooded out homes hoping to ride out Florence.  Something just doesn’t seem right about all of this.

Why are so many people choosing to stay and ride out these storms?  Why don’t they have a place to go with their pets?  Do they have a place to go and they still don’t go? When they choose to stay in their homes then putting their lives and those of emergency personnel at risk?  I’m sorry but this doesn’t seem smart.

This disaster scenario is playing out over and over again and still it seems we haven’t learned much.  With all the technology, the wealth and resources and science still people are dying in these storms.  People are still making poor choices and expecting help that doesn’t seem to be there for them unless it comes from charity.  Do they have home owner’s insurance and if they do does it cover disasters like this?  If they don’t have insurance by choice or just can’t afford it then what?!  Where is all the money in this country going?  This is normal for a first world country?!  This isn’t climate change?!  Where is the breaking point with this?!

The Battle of the Boyne

1 July 1690

The Battle of the Boyne was fought in Ireland between William of Orange and James II in July 1690.

It was the last time two crowned kings of England, Scotland and Ireland faced each other on the battlefield.

William of Orange won a crushing victory, which secured the Protestant ascendancy in Ireland for generations. It retains huge symbolic importance in Northern Ireland, where it is celebrated by the Orange Order every 12 July.

Ancient Roman historians initially differed over the precise date of Rome’s foundation. By the end of the republic, however, it was generally accepted that Rome had been founded in 753 bce and that the republic had begun in 509 bce, following the overthrow of Lucius Tarquinius Superbus, the last of Rome’s seven kings.

2:33 pm — I did some more thinking about the natural disaster issue.  I know I haven’t even reached a fraction of all the factors.  It’s so complicated!  It is interesting what showed up in just these few words:

17 Sept 2018

What is interesting to see in just the numeric value of the words, no actual dollar values or other facts what you can see. It seems like a lot of different agents benefit and or profit from what happens before, during and after a natural disaster but it’s a 9 cycle, meaning it’s a hard way to turn a profit and or benefit from tragedy –

11 Sept 2018 Are you sorry you did something wrong or just sorry you got caught?

Kyle and I were talking today about whether or not most people are genuinely sorry when they have done something wrong.  Are they sorry about what they did or are they just sorry because they got caught.  It seems like there are so many laws that don’t get enforced or if they do they are not consistently enforced.  I honestly believe the lack of consistency goes to a lot more people are misbehaving than we have law enforcement to actually catch them at it.  I also suspect there are many laws on the books that really are either too complicated for the average person to understand or are out of step with our times.  Many people probably don’t even know they are even breaking a law there are so many of them and they are so complicated to understand.  The term “legalese” comes to mind.  I’ve tried to read some laws and it’s made my head hurt.  The language they use for a lot of laws are not the normal words that most of us use day to day.  Did they do that on purpose?  May be.

I’m going to take a break from here for a couple of days.  We are going to be having some extra four legged visitors for a few days and that will keep me pretty occupied!  Another reason I need to step away is I know I’m repeating myself.  I tried to draw today and I was empty – nothing came to me.  This isn’t necessarily a bad thing but it does make for a disappointment for those of you who started following my blog for my art works!

Anyhew… here is my brainstorm.  It’s not all inclusive but it’s interesting to see some of the common terms in numbers.  I am doing something a little different and making sure the dividing by 2 happens all the way through.  It’s interesting to see how some of these items really are not straight-forward and require analysis, which is pretty accurate to what is actually going on.

defamation in Simple Gematria equals: 88 is another word for libel

https://dictionary.law.com/Default.aspx?selected=1153

libel

1) n. to publish in print (including pictures), writing or broadcast through radio, television or film, an untruth about another which will do harm to that person or his/her reputation, by tending to bring the target into ridicule, hatred, scorn or contempt of others. Libel is the written or broadcast form of defamation, distinguished from slander, which is oral defamation. It is a tort (civil wrong) making the person or entity (like a newspaper, magazine or political organization) open to a lawsuit for damages by the person who can prove the statement about him/her was a lie. Publication need only be to one person, but it must be a statement which claims to be fact and is not clearly identified as an opinion. While it is sometimes said that the person making the libelous statement must have been intentional and malicious, actually it need only be obvious that the statement would do harm and is untrue. Proof of malice, however, does allow a party defamed to sue for general damages for damage to reputation, while an inadvertent libel limits the damages to actual harm (such as loss of business) called special damages. Libel per se involves statements so vicious that malice is assumed and does not require a proof of intent to get an award of general damages. Libel against the reputation of a person who has died will allow surviving members of the family to bring an action for damages. Most states provide for a party defamed by a periodical to demand a published retraction. If the correction is made, then there is no right to file a lawsuit. Governmental bodies are supposedly immune to actions for libel on the basis that there could be no intent by a non-personal entity, and further, public records are exempt from claims of libel. However, there is at least one known case in which there was a financial settlement as well as a published correction when a state government newsletter incorrectly stated that a dentist had been disciplined for illegal conduct. The rules covering libel against a “public figure” (particularly a political or governmental person) are special, based on U.S. Supreme Court decisions. The key is that to uphold the right to express opinions or fair comment on public figures, the libel must be malicious to constitute grounds for a lawsuit for damages. Minor errors in reporting are not libel, such as saying Mrs. Jones was 55 when she was only 48, or getting an address or title incorrect. 2) v. to broadcast or publish a written defamatory statement.
