Move beyond any attachment to names…..

Every war  and every conflict between human beings has happened because
of some disagreement about names. It’s such an unnecessary foolishness, because just
beyond the arguing there’s a long  table of companionship, set and waiting for us to sit down.


What is praised is one, so the praise is one too,
many jugs being poured  into a huge basin. All religions, all this singing,
one song.  The differences are just illusion and vanity. Sunlight
looks slightly different  on this wall than it does on that wall and a lot different
on this other one, but  it is still one light. We have borrowed these clothes, these
time-and-space personalities,  from a light, and when we praise, we pour them back in.

13 Nov 2017 Jackie Wygant out back with Spot and Link Alvarado TX

13 Nov 2017 – me out back yesterday. My hair is starting to turn the color of the gray skies we’ve been having lately! Lol!

Good morning to you. It’s 7:46 am as I begin to write to you on this gray and overcast Tuesday…missing that sunshine! How are you? I hope you are doing well.

Yesterday we were going to go and see Thor: Ragnarok (https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/thor_ragnarok_2017) at the AMC Theater in Burleson where we normally go to see movies. This particular Theater has started using the assigned seating system and we hate it! We bought tickets and admittingly sat in the wrong seats. It was a matinee and there were a lot of empty seats so we didn’t see a problem. A couple came in and apparently we were in their seats, so we moved. No problem. The opening credits started which included a war film starring Chris Hemsworth we were irritated to see a trailer for. We don’t like the reality war film genre at all…..makes sense when you don’t like war as much as we do. Anyways. Some more people came in and once again, we were in the wrong seat. We moved to what would be our seats but big surprise….people were sitting in them! Rather than ask those people to move like everyone had done to us, we just sat down in available seats nearby. Then Kyle, acting totally out of character for Kyle, was very angry and decided he just wanted to leave…get a refund. So we went to the poor man who had sold us the tickets. Kyle actually had beads of sweat on his forehead so I knew he was really mad and it was taking a lot to hold himself back from making a scene with the poor person who wasn’t responsible for a dysfunctional theater system. So I made sure to let the young man know we realized it wasn’t his fault the theater was being run in such a manner and explained why we wanted the refund. There was no way to make a complaint in the theater so Kyle did that when we got home. We probably won’t be going back to that particular theater as long as they continue with assigned seating. We could understand such a system for a premiere showing or a weekend….not a matinee. We really miss just being able to buy a ticket and find an available seat!

So I had a dream last night that was so vivid and wonderful I got out of bed at 1:54 am to write it down! I know the keys that unlocked this particular dream were my thinking and talking about the Distant Worlds concert Kyle and I saw together and reading poetry out loud, poorly in some instances as some of the words in the older poems are tricky, before bed.

I dreamt about reading stories written by children with disabilities like ADD/Autism at a benefit. I was reading as if I were the child with all the nuances of the way the child talked. The text I was reading was so vivid I actually remembered a couple of words from it and those were “hinged” and “hingeless.” These were used in the context of describing a person not a door. It wasn’t “me” reading in the dream. It was a young woman with a gentle soft face, brown curly hair and blue eyes. I remember someone saying thank you to her before I woke up.

The woman looked kind of like the character Darlene, actress Sara Gilbert, from the television sitcom Roseanne. As Kyle said to me after I told him the dream, “It probably was her, it’s who you cast for the role.” I guess the people who appear in our dreams could be like actors eh?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sara_Gilbert – in case you don’t know who Sara is

Anyhew….I loved that I remembered actual words from the dream and decided to see where they would lead me. Well I was lead to a bunch of pictures of people wearing glasses and the two articles I’m sharing that correlate quite well to what it means to be a “hingeless person.”

Being actively in the dream world is the epitome of being a hingeless person! I prefer that sort of definition to the one where a person can come completely unhinged and subsequently say and do very bad things! That correlates nicely to what happened with Kyle and I and our recent theater experience right?! Sometimes you need an extra set of hinges lol.

Time to close and get on with the day. I hope there is something for you here in all of this!

http://thechristianpulse.com/2015/04/18/a-door-without-hinges/this was the first article I found when looking for anything about what it might mean to be a hingeless person. I don’t agree with everything Marty writes here, but there are parts that really resonated with me and I’ve “bolded” those aspects. For those who are not Christians, this piece comes from that direction – just a heads up in case you walk a different path.

A Door Without Hinges

April 18, 2015 by admin Filed under Family Focus

By Marty Norman

A door is an interesting thing. Everyone has them, everyone uses them. A working definition, for purposes of this article is: an opening that allows a body to move between two places quickly.

Recently my granddaughter Lily stayed at our house for a week. She is into Webkinz, so our first activity was to go to Target and buy Hopkins the Elephant, and Hippie the Hippopotamus. Next we got online to “adopt” these animals and give them a name.

The Webkinz site is a clever one. Once signed in, each pet owner has his/her own house. Each new pet is given a room of their own in the house. Then the owner carefully picks out furniture, beds, room colors, and favorite objects customized for them to enjoy. Each “adoptee” can travel from room to room to visit the other “adoptees”. However, to get from one room to the next they must stand in a doorway. With the click of a mouse they then move effortlessly from room to room.

In this fantasy world, doors are the key. Only by going through the door can one advance forward.

In the spiritual world, doors are also the key. But the spiritual world is not fantasy. Jesus tells us in Revelation 3:20, “I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.” (NIV)

Another door – but one of greater importance – for this door leads to salvation, eternity, and to a personal relationship with the Savior. But this door is also an opening that allows our flesh and spirit to move quickly between two worlds, the spiritual and the physical.

I once read a meditation by my friend Cathy that described a door as having three hinges – a great description for physical and spiritual doors. It takes three hinges to hold a physical door in place. In the same way, in the spiritual realm, the three hinges are the Trinity, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, staples that hold a person in place, keep us on the mark, and help us advance to the next room.

But what happens to the door that has no hinges, the person who has no spiritual foundation?

Here are some characteristics of a hinge-less door.

First of all, a hinge-less door cannot be opened – no way, no how, without the ability to open and close, the door falls to the ground. There is no anchor, no connection to a foundation. A hinge-less person also has no anchor. With the slightest wind they fall for there is nothing holding them up.

A hinge-less door is also rocky. You never know when it will collapse. And when it falls, it damages that which it falls upon. The same with the anchorless person. Unaware of consequences they fall every which way, often damaging those with whom they come in contact.

A hinge-less door is unusable. It serves no purpose. The same with the anchorless person. How can they be used if they are not in step with God’s will and purpose? God uses those who stay close and in contact with him to love, heal, and bless his people.

A hinge-less door is out of control. There is no stability that orders its way. Without a Father who loves, a Savior who redeems, and a Holy Spirit that leads and guides, the anchorless person is without form or stability.

So hinges are a necessary part of the moving forward process. As believers of the “The Way”, it is up to us to carry extra hinges wherever we go, for we never know when we might be needed to stabilize a wobbly door. By introducing the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit to others, by helping to anchor hinge-less doors to the God of heaven, we will be helping the hinge-less attach to the firm foundation of life.

A Webkinz I am not, but anyone can be a carpenter that works with the Savior. Now that is a door I can stay connected to – and with just a click of the mouse! How convenient is that?

https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/the-second-noble-truth/201301/your-dream-worldthis piece stuck out at me because I am more actively paying attention to my dreams again. I have realized for myself and mentioned it many times in my blogs that our personal perception of the world is a key factor to the life we live. A key element to the life we share with other human beings and life forms on this planet. Just because you perceive a person, place, thing or situation a certain way doesn’t make you “right.” It is only your perception, which may be completely different from another. It doesn’t make you “wrong” either…just “different.” We need different to help us navigate this life. I think if we rely only on our own perception of everything, we could be living in a lot of untruths of what reality truly is.

Your Dream World

Don’t go through life unaware you are projecting the inner world onto the outer.

Posted Jan 06, 2013

This article isn’t about dream interpretation, though the analogy is apt. The post is about how projection, which is a staple in dreaming, occurs in waking life and affects what you see. It is about no longer walking through life in a dream like state and taking the time to delve inside of yourself, to interpret your life.

In Gestalt dream analysis, everything in the dream is you. Other theories, though not outright stating everything in the dream is subjective, recognize that projection is apparent. After all it is your mind creating the images, not an actual person invading your dream. Your unconscious projects an image. The real meaning of the image lies within you, not outside in another.

Dream interpretation is very interesting and can provide clues to the unconscious. The purpose of this post is to discuss how the waking hours can do the same. There are aspects of reality we all agree upon: the weather; who won which bowl game; there is little about these aspects of reality anyone will argue. There is a great deal of room in daily interactions and activities, however, for one to have their own truth, their own perception of reality. In fact, it could be contended that the vast majority of occurrences in a day have a large element of projection.

Projection is when an individual attributes something within him or herself onto another. Basically, you see what you are. This is not new; there are numerous quotes that impart this meaning: Anaïs Nin stated, “We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.” Henry David Thoreau proclaimed, “It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.” Carl Jung said, “Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.” These quotes, and likely many others, point to the theory that humans project their unconscious onto others. Simply, what one finds in the world is a reflection of one’s unconscious.

The idea that one is projecting much of what he or she perceives maybe difficult to accept. People rely on their thinking beyond reproach. This is understandable; one has more access to his or her thoughts than any other material. One’s thinking has likely served him well. The thought of not relying on thinking could be terrifying. However, the alternative is to walk through a dream world never interpreted.

In previous posts I have touched on the theme of subjective reality. One of my more popular posts is, “The Truth Will Not Set You Free.” The suggestion is similar here: question thinking. Evaluate it. Step outside of thought, look at it objectively and with an inquisitive mind, and evaluate it. Could all of these learned and insightful people, some of whom developed theories around projection, others who use the theories to assist others to increase happiness, have been wrong? Isn’t it possible or perhaps likely that what one sees is affected by their unconscious, by their experience, by their history? As such, how is projection affecting your vision?

To approach this differently, it is not being suggested that one simply cease having confidence in every thought and question everything. Nothing would get done. Automatic thinking serves the human race well. It helps discern between dangerous and benign situations. It allows for much more productivity. It eases living immensely. To be without it would be to become infantile.

Always functioning and trusting thinking, nevertheless, has its costs. Often one is not completely present in interactions, as the mind, the ego, is determining the next move. This might be what to say or considering what is next on the agenda. By not being completely present, and by allowing automatic thinking to operate unquestioned, one does not perceive reality accurately. Prior experience taints the present. One may not be able to see past their impression. Opportunities may be missed. Negativity focused on rather than positivity. Potential acquaintances judged and discarded without really knowing who they are. Others allowed into one’s life that one might have been better off without. All because an overused, albeit handy, tool has gone unchecked.

It is not the intention of this post to persuade one to give up on initial impressions or hunches. Often they serve an incredible purpose. In Malcolm Gladwell’s book “Blink”, he does an excellent job of describing how intuition and first impressions can be incredibly positive; while at other times they alter perception in a negative way leading to horrible outcomes. The purpose of this post is simply to encourage the questioning of thought and judgment, especially when it is leading to negative feeling and action. A good beginning would be questioning what we don’t like in another. Carl Jung said, “Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.” Another time to begin self-evaluation is when you misunderstand someone. It is likely you were projecting your own unconscious into the misunderstanding.

Evaluating oneself can be a daunting task. Days are filled with activity, deadlines, and tasks. Automatic thinking permits a smoother, and more efficient life. Evaluating if you are projecting the unconscious takes time and an open mind. It can be an arduous task to interpret the representations you put on another, or on a situation. Questioning one’s thinking, looking within, peering into the possible ugliness that lies in the unconscious is challenging to say the least. But self-understanding, a potentially less outwardly conflictual existence, and being in the present moment more often are worth it.

16 Nov 2015 Tragedy in France, war, Saints and Keshe Foundation Tech experiments

Hello my friends, thank you for coming by to visit today.  I know you all have busy lives and so it honors me you would take the time to come here for whatever reason.  I’m hoping you’re here for positive reasons and I apologize if what I am about to write about what happened in Paris France changes that.  Most of you who are regulars and know me by now knew this was coming!

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/nov/16/isis-attack-on-paris-may-be-an-act-of-war-but-retaliation-might-not-be-lawful

Isis attack on Paris may be an ‘act of war’ but retaliation may not be lawful

The attacks have renewed calls for greater military intervention in Syria, including military forces on the ground, but where does the law stand?

The French president, Francois Hollande, described the Paris attacks as an “act of war” that must be “mercilessly” countered and on Monday, France launched a major airstrike against an Islamic State stronghold in Raqqa.

France launches ‘massive’ airstrike on Isis stronghold of Raqqa

Fighter jets launch biggest raid to date targeting Islamic State bastion in Raqqa province of Syria

The attacks have renewed calls from some for greater military intervention in Syria; up to and including the launch of military forces on the ground. But is it lawful for countries to engage in greater military action against Isis?

 

So here we go again.  The cycle: Attack on unsuspecting innocents founded in religious idealogy and revenge a.k.a the civilized word “retaliation” and then “lets have a war” and send more young men and women to add to the body count so a few people can make more money off of the ways, means and aftermath of war.

 

I may be off base with this statement, but this is what I see and I’m so fucking sick of it.  I’m sick of the world “falling for it again.”  This whole mess is the responsibility of a few really poor, insane leaders who have used the principles of insanity to govern the world stage.  Let’s do what we’ve done thousands of times before and see if something different happens! YEAH that’s the ticket!  We have plenty of paid puppets to make it happen too!

Here is how it goes:

  1. Rich people want to stay rich and how do they do that? Control of the main resources the majority of the worlds population needs to survive. (all the more reason we need to support people like Mr. Keshe who want to liberate us from this endless cycle!)
  2. Resources and the profits associated with these resources is threatened. So “something” must be done about it. We can’t just start bombing and killing people who are responsible without buy-in from the international stage. Let’s arm and train the people where the resources are to do our dirty work.
  3. Oopsy the trainees have gone awol! They’ve been overrun by the people messing with the resources. Ironically the same people we trained the last time it happened! Oh gee! Time to get more buy-in for a bigger response. We need American and European troops for this one but it’s going to be expensive! YAY! More money for us but we have to make it look like its “justified.” Let’s sit back and let the people we want to kill stir up some shit for the cause! The masses always go for that!
  4. There is going to be collateral damage with this but it’s all for the greater good…..they will believe it and we stay rich and in power! YAY for us!
  5. The aftermath that Americans and so many other “civilized” countries seem proud of ensues. We salute the brave soldiers who are lead, through intense propaganda from sources to include You Tube (saw a recruiting commercial looking for the St. Vincent Trailer) manage to make it out alive with or without their limbs and mental faculties and bury the 19 year olds who didn’t.
  6. “Peace” is restored, the masses are placated into believing “all is well again” until the next time the coffers need to be filled.  Meanwhile the collateral damage of war, primarily military veterans and their families, have to rely on charity in one form or another to put their bodies and lives back together.  If you look, there are hundreds of charities like Wounded Warriors devoted to this cause.  God Bless them but I really wish they didn’t have a reason to exist!

http://www.va.gov/vso/VSO-Directory_2013-2014.pdf – here’s irony for you….this list is from the VA!  The very organization that should be taking care of the services those listed are being left to take care!

Anyone not “selling” the course of action to “go to war” is treated like they are unpatriotic and “insane” and the pundits funded by the people behind all this shit start jabbering…yay Ted Cruz.  Kyle and I saw him just this morning. Kyle said he looked like a wax dummy and I just wanted to throw up hearing and looking at him.  I guess the Koch brothers managed to clone him in wax so he can be melted in the sludge from one of their plants if he doesn’t comply.

I love the people of this world.  It doesn’t matter what country they are from. I didn’t change my profile pic on Facebook to show my solidarity with France because I don’t give a fuck if it’s France or any part of the world…I can’t change my profile pic to every flag of the world that’s been raped, pillaged, manipulated, stolen from and bombed to pieces by the whims of these idiots.

This said….wake up people.  Don’t fall for this shit again.  How many more body bags do you want to see unloaded from military aircraft?  How many more fresh graves do you want to visit at Arlington?  How many more veterans do you want to pay for to rehabilitate after this round of it is over?

UGH!

So this weekend we watched the movie St. Vincent starring Bill Murray and Melissa McCarthy and really enjoyed it.  We even cried at the end.  Ironically who was the star?  A Vietnam veteran with a totally fucked up life after being in the war.

http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/st_vincent/

Maggie (McCarthy), a single mother, moves into a new home in Brooklyn with her 12-year old son, Oliver (Lieberher). Forced to work long hours, she has no choice but to leave Oliver in the care of their new neighbor, Vincent (Murray), a retired curmudgeon with a penchant for alcohol and gambling. An odd friendship soon blossoms between the improbable pair. Together with a pregnant stripper named Daka (Watts), Vincent brings Oliver along on all the stops that make up his daily routine – the race track, a strip club, and the local dive bar. Vincent helps Oliver grow to become a man, while Oliver begins to see in Vincent something that no one else is able to: a misunderstood man with a good heart. (C) Weinstein

This weekend we did the smoker thing with the smoker Kyle made last year.  The cut of meat we got from the organic meat shop we use, Woods and Cuds, was absolutely horrible.  Most of it was inedible.  The dogs will be eating well this week.  This isn’t the normal for them either…they need Scooter back!

I used the fire to fire-nanocoat the coils we were using for our first attempt at a Keshe Foundation GANS battery. I had been soaking the coils in a salt water soup for a about a week.  I tried the battery test before the fire coating just using the salt coat coils…nothing.  I tried the test after the fire coat…nothing.  The voltage meter both AC and DC and Ohm settings..zero.  I’m not sure if it was a case of “crappy GANS” or something with the coils or something else.  I’m sure if was “operator error” but just don’t know how.  I kept wishing Mr. Keshe was standing next to me to tell me I specifically what I had done wrong lol.  This is why I need step-by-step instruction manuals and hands-on classes with the construction of this stuff.

Needless to say I was very disappointed!  I decided to try something else and remembered the Medipen people have been making and decided to make coils for that.  I did two of them and didn’t nanocoat them at all and we actually got AC current to register….barely but it was there.  Nothing on DC.  This made me feel much better!  If we could get a reading without the nanocoating I’m hoping if I decide to do that we’ll get a higher reading.

Anyhew…this is getting long.  I send my most loving and peaceful intentions to the people of the world, like France, who are suffering collateral damage from poor leadership and smoke-screened intentions of the Masters.  Now more than ever we must collectively open or eyes and see this dog and pony show for what it’s always been.  We’ve done this before people and it DIDN’T CHANGE A FUCKING THING FOR ANYONE BUT THEM!

4 March 2015 Intergenerational and Historical Trauma and Forgiveness

 

Yesterday I learned a new term I hadn’t heard before from watching this video, The Wellbriety Journey to Forgiveness posted by Don Coyhis on You Tube: http://youtu.be/vZwF9NnQbWM?list=PL_rYpWbrL6o4jGlLlnEAmBH9zpUhcwg26

The word is “intergenerational trauma, historical trauma.”

Excerpt from this publication from Whitebison.org: http://www.whitebison.org/magazine/2005/volume6/wellbriety!vol6no6.pdf

“As a result of all this we have historical trauma, which we define as cumulative emotional and psychological wounding across generations, including one’s own lifespan, because everything up to a minute ago is history.”

This morning I was contemplating on this word and started writing.  I apologize if I seem soap boxy or long winded but may be something here will resonate and make it worth your time.

Why does it seem like some people want to destroy the world? Why does it seem like these same people when given every opportunity to stop it do everything they can to escalate it or make it worse?

The answers seem only to be more questions because I don’t believe they even know why.

The reasons are layered so deeply in their DNA, in their blood memory.  I don’t think they even realize on a conscious level what they are doing.  They are merely consciousness in a pre-designed, pre-fabricated shell not of their own making.

Everything the people I speak of were born to be is decided before they are born.  The decision isn’t by God, but by those in expectation of their arrival.  The pre-fab humans already here.

Generation after generation is a predestined path paved in one way;  already well-worn and certain.

This predetermined path was paved for the First People, our Native Americans, African Americans, Asian Americans and in recent times Latin Americans.  The group of peoples omitted from the list and at the center of much of the what, where and why of our current world….us….White Americans.  Not all of us White People are totally at fault and are trying to change ourselves but most of us aren’t “running things” either.  In one way or another, every human being to have ever walked this earth has in some way been a victim of intergenerational/historical trauma.  Some of us are choosing change and trying to repair the damage of our ancestors, but sadly many of those in positions of power are not…are knowingly choosing not to.

For both perpetrators and victims of intergenerational trauma, a path is created for all who come after them.

This is what I see through of all American, World and well….human history.

As humans we want to blame someone else for what is happening, no one, except newborns and very young children are innocent.

Even as we’ve advanced as a species and learned better ways, we continue to choose ignorance. We choose violence/revenge to answer hurt, greed to answer hunger, power to answer real or perceived weakness.  We know better.  We could change everything for the better but we continue to make easy choices to solve complicated problems like a dog trying to catch its tail we go round and round.  We make the same choices to solve the same problems expecting new results.  We try to profit from providing solutions to problems we created.

Free is not valued.  Free is something those who rely on problems to generate profits fear.  There is no profit in free, there is no profit in freedom.

We say we believe Gods and some Goddesses.  We proclaim to revere, honor, respect and follow their teachings written and spoken but our actions defy all of them.  We are hypocrites!  Humans are some of the best cherry pickers in the world as we skim through sacred texts for answers to justify murder and genocide.  The original intention of all the religious literature across the globe carried out with distorted interpretations and perception.

We have lost faith in ourselves and in the source of our very existence, the earth.  Because of the choices of our ancestors and now us, we do not learn to love, honor and respect ourselves or anyone or anything else.  We do not learn to love, honor and respect ourselves; trust our inner and living wisdom and in turn teach this to our children.  The path of intergenerational trauma paved a little further each moment we live.  This truth is a truth for all human kind of today.  There are those who are awake to this truth and seek transformation and share their journey to help others.

There are those who view enlightenment and matters like these as moments not tangibly profitable or essential to their motives.  Those who seek money, resources and power vs matters of the spirit seem to be the ones who run our world.  Our world is what it is from their seeking and our being accomplices.

We say this world cannot change; these people cannot change.  It’s too far gone.  It’s too hard.  It’s too expensive.  If we do change things it will mean the end of our way of life; will cause us shame because so much of what we’ve learned and have done hasn’t been for our best good.  Instead of changing our course today, we keep doing what we’ve always done and hope we’ll die before we are discovered and held in account for our actions.

What I see, have lived and what I now say has been all these things many times before.  There have been SO MANY MESSENGERS!  We’ve written their messages and lives down, done audio recordings, made videos, documentaries and movies and yet here we are.

It’s time to see, live, say.  It’s time to listen, learn, act and change.  It’s time for the blood, sweat, tears and efforts of all those messengers who’ve tried to heal our shared intergenerational traumas to become manifest now.  We need to get “realz!”

We’ve had many chances, attempts and actual successes to forge a new path all of us can walk down peacefully together.  It seems at an escalating pace with the help of our instant media technologies, the powers that be want to pave a path where we shoot, rape, rob, stab, yell, lie, gossip, hate, bomb each other instead.  A road of blood littered with our bodies, not theirs.  This isn’t a new tactic; hence the trauma!

These powerbrokers stand at the edge of this bloody road handing us more ammunition along the way.  The gun advocates give us more guns to “defend” ourselves.  I hear far more about guns being used to resolve personal differences than in self-defense.  You can survive most knife wounds and can take bad unkind words….you can’t take back a bullet.  I don’t believe any of the guns pushed on to us in the guise of self-defense will matter when we are faced with their weapons like tanks and bombs.

The war complex builds more bombs and sends more of our young to fight wars and foreign people they trained to hate and kill us…terrorism is by their design for the spoils of war.

Sadly, those in charge of the war machine, food/agriculture, medicine, manufacturing, retail, mainstream media and entertainment, government and all other money generating systems are mere puppets on strings to the puppet masters.  The puppets do the dirty work so their masters can remain behind the curtain.

The question I usually ask when I watch Superhero movies with characters like Superman and Lex Luther or Batman and the Joker or any super-hero vs nemesis set on world dominance and destruction is if you fuck everything up and everyone is sick, dying or dead …what’s the point?!  Don’t these people read history?  We’ve been hearing a lot about Hitler these days.  His story wasn’t a real positive one!  The genocide of 8 million+  Jews accomplished what?!  World War II and in the end…

http://www.historyplace.com/worldwar2/timeline/death.htm:

“Hitler and his wife then went back into their private quarters while Bormann and Goebbels remained quietly nearby. Several moments later a gunshot was heard. After waiting a few moments, at 3:30 p.m., Bormann and Goebbels entered and found the body of Hitler sprawled on the sofa, dripping with blood from a gunshot to his right temple. Eva Braun had died from swallowing poison.

As Soviet shells exploded nearby, the bodies were carried up to the Chancellery garden, doused with gasoline and burned while Bormann and Goebbels stood by and gave a final Nazi salute. Over the next three hours the bodies were repeatedly doused with gasoline. The charred remains were then swept into a canvas, placed into a shell crater and buried. “

The puppet masters are themselves just puppets to their chosen stage manager, their God.  They, like we bow, kiss, shake, blow drugs up our nose with its inky flesh.

They will tell us what we want to hear and it honors their God.  They tell us they share our chosen walks of faith, beliefs, and our values but because we’ve followed their God for so long, we don’t even know for ourselves or have forgotten what our own faith, beliefs and values are.  Every time we vote for them, buy from them, watch them pitch rhetoric we become living sacrifices to their God.  Our personal energy feeds it and gives it life.

We are distracted with the gadgets, addictive substances and activities they’ve put in our way.  All of this honors their God while they continue to worship in private board rooms.

Their God gives them control over our food, water, clothing, shelter, education, healthcare, transportation, religion and education systems.

Their God gives them control over how well and how long we live….if we are born….how slowly or quickly we die.

Their God gives them control over our children and our future.  A future most of them won’t live long enough to reap what they’ve sown.

Fortunately I am seeing, and so are most others who are awake, the time of their God’s power comes to a close.

History shows us what happens to civilizations built such as ours has been.  As with all tangible Gods that build empires on the backs and blood of suffering peoples the life-span is mercifully short (even if it doesn’t seem very short to those who spend a life-time suffering!).

The empire built of their Gods fragile flesh will not withstand climate change…not the “weather” like the idiots keep describing climate change as.  The weather is today, climate change is over time!  A society such as this cannot stand up to climate changes flames, earthquakes, floods, sink-holes and air, water and soil pollution.

Mother always wins no matter what war waged against her….sometimes I wonder if the very word Mother and nature is why they insist on hurting her like they do.  Mother issues?  Father issues? Are these poor souls just a very public example of intergenerational trauma extreme?! Instead of running the world they should be in a therapist office like most of the rest of us are!   If they could just forgive their parents or whomever wronged them would they change?  As the First People, myself and so many others are learning on our quest to healing and inner peace, there is only one cure….forgiveness.

There is no worldly comfort for what ails them…us.  It is only when we at last seek and give forgiveness to all we  have harmed and all who have harmed us will we survive all of this.

Each day for me is an exercise in the act of forgiveness.  I will never stop trying to forgive as the brave First Americans seek to do now.  Forgiveness = lasting healing and peace within and peace in the world.

Again…not saying ANYTHING new.  Just my interpretation in this modern world.

If we do not seek to forgive and be forgiven we only pave the path of world destruction still further.
