Have you ever been faced with the job of re-decorating a room? You know what it’s like… You strip off the old wallpaper only to find that the plaster is full of cracks. This means either filling in the cracks or re-plastering with all the mess that entails. Well, this is what has been happening for the past months (or years) to everybody, either on a personal level, a government level or nationally.

These are the real symptoms of change. In order to become new, to find out who we truly are, we first have to demolish the old. This process of change we are undergoing requires that everything of the past is cleared out so that we can see the cracks that have been underlying our lives for some time. We cannot become what our potential demands as long as the world, and ourselves, are still layered over with the old paper, old ways of being, which covered up everything.

Through 2007, and particularly 2008, we have seen the removal of many layers of old paper which have served to blinker our view of reality. As we entered 2009, the blinkers really began to come off and we started to realise that we, as individuals, have to take responsibility for our own lives. We can no longer rely on anyone or any institution to save us. Those who have turned to the ‘quick fix’ for their problems realised, at long last, that there cannot be a quick solution. We cannot just add another layer of wallpaper. We have to face the consequences of re-building from the foundations up.

National Simplicity Day

Posted on Updated on

National Simplicity Day Photo

July 12th is another very busy ‘National Day’ with five celebrations. Simplicity Day is observed on the birthday of Henry David Thoreau. He was born on this day in 1817. As a philosopher, he believed in living a simple life:

“In proportion as he simplifies his life, the laws of the universe will appear less complex and, solitude will not be solitude, nor poverty poverty, nor weakness weakness.”

He was a world-renowned author, historian, abolitionist, tax resister (my hero!), a surveyor, criticized over-development, preferred the natural ways and transcendentalism and, was a friend of and mentored by, Ralph Waldo Emerson. Born nearly 100 years prior to Alan Watts, the two could have been contemporary peers.

In our overly busy lives, steeped in political battles, materialism, social media madness and the struggle to survive, slowing down, disengaging and walking in nature can be a refreshing break. De-cluttering and simplifying one’s life can, ultimately, bring peace and balance.

Also celebrated today:
National Different Colored Eyes Day
National Pecan Pie Day (Yum!)
Paper Bag Day
Eat Your Jello Day (I’m not kidding)

Cheers and enjoy!

The Roswell Incident

Posted on Updated on

Roswell Daily Record Photo

On July 8, 1947, something happened in Roswell, New Mexico. The Roswell Daily Record printed the story of the crash of a “flying saucer” on a ranch roughly 30 miles outside of Roswell proper. The Sacramento Bee picked up the story and printed statements from the Roswell Army Air Field.

Over the years, I’ve seen documentaries and read accounts of the initial debris field pieces that were retrieved from the owner of the land. I’ve seen the interviewees on camera and read their statements. I also know that there was a concerted effort by our military to keep what they found out of any more newspapers and, to quickly change the narrative to the “weather balloon” story.

I’ve actually been to Roswell, NM, spending the night in a local motel just for the complete experience in September of 2002. It’s cattle ranch territory and it smells that way especially in the morning. I’ve been to the Roswell UFO Museum. It is really quite fascinating to walk through it. Some of it is tongue-in-cheek but, there is a lot of information despite the government’s desire to make it “a joke”. A local waitress in a diner, where my *then* husband and I went for breakfast, said that the whole thing was a blessing and a curse. It brought in tourism dollars but, it was also a sore point for some of the older residents whom, at that time, still remembered the events when they happened. As she poured our coffee, she leaned over and told us that there were many locals that swore it was a craft…information passed quietly from neighbor to neighbor, family descendant to family descendant, much like Native American verbal history, handed down through time. Frankly, I never believed the official story. There were too many questions left unanswered and too many things that didn’t add up. Plus, our government lies to us all the time. Why should this be any different.

Fast forward to October of 2013… I stumble across Chris Thomas, his books, his interviews, his videos and, his articles and essays. Well, well, well… Guess what?

From The Universal Soul, pages 82 & 83 (an excerpt):

[…] these were a race we have come to call “The Greys”. The Greys originate on a star system many galaxies distant from us. […] their own name for themselves does not translate into anything pronounceable by the human voice box.

These beings have been observing Earth for many centuries […] The Greys behave a little like human teenagers in that they have a certain level of knowledge but, cannot quite put it into context.

The first real contact we had with these beings was with the Roswell crash in New Mexico in 1948 [sic]. This was an event where a Grey ship malfunctioned and crashed into the desert near the town of Roswell. As with just about anything that happens in America, the military took control. The crash provided them with an alien ship and three survivors. The Greys were reluctant to become involved in human affairs but, the American military had three of their beings. So began a relationship […] The American military looking for ‘advanced’ technology to give them global military advantage and, in return, the Greys received free access to the genetic material available on Earth.

[Administrator’s Note: Chris Thomas was many things but, not the best typist. His books have a few typos.]

From The Human Soul: Universal Soul 2, pages 125 & 126 (an excerpt):

Their home galaxy is too far distant for us to have a name for it.

This race is responsible for some of the human and animal abductions that have taken place on Earth in the past 40 years.

As they were causing some disruption to human plans, they have, effectively, been banned from our solar system since 2000. This race has been working with the American miliary since the Roswell crash in 1947 and has given over a great deal of its technology in exchange for permission to carry out some animal experimentation and medical examinations of people.

From Project Human Extinction: The Ultimate Conspiracy, pages 128-131 (an excerpt):

During the Second World War, a great many ‘unidentified’ flying craft were observed as the skies were watched with far more zeal than was previously necessary.

Several of these craft were shot down but, because it was war time and it was known that Hitler was developing many innovative weapons, it was assumed that crashed UFOs were Nazi in origin.

During the war, the American military began to experiment with many forms of weapons and energy devices and, in particular, energy devices that would help shield ships or aircraft from the newly developed enemy radar. […] the technology was kept for later experiments which the American military began in the late 1940s.

In 1948 [sic], the experiments began in a region of New Mexico, although this time, the machinery was land based […] They ran experiments for three days and each day at least one UFO fell out of the sky, the most famous one being the crash at Roswell.

There is so much disinformation spread about this race that the only way of finding out any form of truth is to look to the Akashic.

In exchange for new ‘alien’ technology, the American military ‘granted’ the Greys permission to abduct and study human physiology.

Since 2000, the Greys have been asked not to travel to our solar system, a request with which they have generally been happy to comply.

From Synthesis, page 40:

Their first real contact with Earth was the Roswell crash […] The military have mainly been interested in Grey technology which the military mainly use for psychic attack purposes.

The Greys are very interested in human physiology and are responsible for some human and animal abductions. Please note: the vast majority of human and animal abductions, and mutilations, have been carried out by the military.

Still believe our government? Still believe our military?

If you are unsure of what the Akashic is, that will be for another post.

I snapped these yesterday evening. I was stunned at how clear and brilliant this rainbow was. The companion rainbow above is harder to see.

It is a shame that my cell phone cannot truly capture what I see. The beauty is breathtaking.

It’s summertime and we’re getting the hot weather storms in the afternoons. I heard the thunder as the system rolled in and the sunlight dimmed. I didn’t really think much about it. I just happened to step outside to our recyclables bin and…wow. I ran back inside and grabbed my phone. I wandered up and down the street trying to get good shots.

Damn power lines. *sigh*

Sunshine Blogger Award

Posted on Updated on

Sunshine Blogger Award Photo

I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by fellow blogger H@rdip. Check him out. Thank you, love. I actually had to dig around to see what this was. It appears to be a blogging community way of saying “Hello. I like your blog.” and, the logo & questions change from blog to blog.

This is how it works…

Rules:

  • Thank the blogger that nominated you.
  • Answer the 11 questions asked of you.
  • Nominate 11 other bloggers and ask them 11 questions.
  • List the rules and include the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post.

My answers to H@rdip’s questions:

  1. Why did you start the blog?
  2. This blog is my third attempt to share. My first one was started in 2008 (I told you 2010 but, remembered, later, that it was earlier) and was pretty much all political. I’m not a political animal anymore…grew out of it. My second blog was about yoga and the 2012 event. It didn’t last long and I don’t even remember the name of it.

  3. Do you have any long-term goals for your blog. If yes, what are they?
  4. I’m at the age that I view long-term goals as mere suggestions…for blogs or anything else. Living in the moment, instead of dwelling on the past or worrying about the future, is a much easier place to be. That being said, I like to write, take pictures and “observe” my world. Sometimes, I share my thoughts and if my perspective helps someone, so much the better.

  5. What is your favorite pastime and why?
  6. Reading. I am voracious reader as I am curious about damn near everything.

  7. What is your number one go-to movie and why?
  8. OY. That is a tough question. I love many, many movies. I can list five movies that I could watch over and over, again (and have, many times):

    • The Ghost & Mrs. Muir…because love transcends life & death.
    • The Wizard of Oz…because there is no place like home (and everyone should visit this place: Land of Oz).
    • Grease…because it came out when I was a “tween” and I was a screaming Olivia Newton-John fan. And, high school should be that much fun.
    • Oblivion…because love transcends life, death & DNA.
    • Contact…because…

      “I’ll tell you one thing about the universe, though. The universe is a pretty big place. It’s bigger than anything anyone has ever dreamed of before. So if it’s just us… seems like an awful waste of space. Right?”

  9. If you could do anything, what would it be?
  10. “Hey, hey, I wanna be a rock star…”

  11. Who inspires you and why?
  12. Chris Thomas. There is a reason I maintain a page for him.

  13. Give two pieces of advice for new bloggers.
  14. That’s not a question and I’m not good at giving advice. I will encourage any blogger to express themselves in whatever way suits them. Everyone has likes & dislikes. Everyone has an opinion. It is innately human to want to share.

  15. What is your favorite type of music?
  16. I love all genres of music…some more than others. I can say that I prefer my music analog. Digital has no soul.

  17. Who were you in a different life?
  18. A nineteen year old man that took a round in the left shoulder and died of disease in WWI.

  19. What is your favorite book and why?
  20. Synthesis from Chris Thomas…because it was his last book and a wonderful synopsis of his previous work. I would encourage anyone to read it and his 10 earlier books. You will need a very open mind, tho…

  21. What does the “Sunshine Blogger Award” mean to you?
  22. Up until my nomination, I had never heard of it. It is kind of H@rdip to nominate me. I hope I continue to provide positive things for all who stop here.

Unfortunately, after all that, I can’t come up with 11 other bloggers to nominate as I just returned to the blogosphere, myself, just two short weeks ago. I have been absent for nearly four years.

I do like these few blogs and I will notify them of my reading affection. But, I haven’t been here long enough to properly “nominate & ask questions”. I will leave it entirely up to them if they wish to proceed:
Harsh Reality…for shining light into his own world.
The Darkest Tunnel…for shining light into her chaos.
Little Fears…for shining light on what might scare us.
Mani…for lighting a new candle.
James Radcliffe…for starting a fire.

National Postal Worker Day & U.S. Postage Stamp Day

Posted on Updated on

National Postal Worker Day Photo

The 1st of July is a very busy day of celebration for the nation, leading up to Independence Day. It’s National Postal Worker Day, established in 1997 by a Seattle area carrier. I have two high school classmates that are postmen. They both really enjoy it. It can be a tough job, though.

If you are thinking “Neither rain nor sleet nor snow…” or something along those lines, the U.S. Post Office doesn’t have an “official” motto, really. There seems to be a bit of confusion from a modified translation of Herodotus’ quote regarding the courier service of the Persian Empire:

There is nothing in the world which travels faster than the Persian couriers. The whole idea is a Persian invention, and works like this: riders are stationed along the road, equal in number to the number of days the journey takes – a man and a horse for each day. Nothing stops these couriers from covering their allotted stage in the quickest possible time – neither snow, rain, heat, nor darkness. The first, at the end of his stage, passes the dispatch to the second, the second to the third, and so on along the line, as in the Greek torch-race which is held in honour of Hephaestus.

National Postage Stamp Day Photo

It’s also U.S. Postage Stamp Day…naturally. The very first postage stamp was issued on July 1, 1847 but, no one seems to know who created the National Day for it. Lost to history, I suppose.

Also celebrated today:
National Creative Ice Cream Flavors Day
National Gingersnap Day

Enjoy, everyone!

Past Life Memories

Posted on Updated on

An Article From: The Chris Thomas Files

People often ask me, ‘If we have lived a series of lifetimes and, if the process of ‘reincarnation’ and our memories of these lifetimes is stored in our DNA, why is it that we do not remember these other lives?’

The answer is quite simple and has to do with the purpose of current human life.

When modern humans first appeared on Earth about 80,000 years ago, we were very much more advanced than we are now. This was at the beginning of the development of the land we know as Atlantis. In those times, human beings had the whole soul within the body. As a result, their full store of memories was intact and fully interactive with the body and, perfectly expressed in the body’s DNA.

However, as time went by, we began to notice that we were having trouble maintaining this level of being and our ‘fall’ from full consciousness was a contributory factor in our collective decision to destroy the Atlantean continent. When we returned to Earth to begin the human experiment again, 20,000 years ago, we once again adopted the same ‘human template’ and, again, encountered the same consciousness problems. The reasons for these problems are too complex to explore here but, ultimately, we formulated ‘The Human Plan’ which we fully adopted 7,000 years ago.

At that point, humans became as we are now: a soul divided into the higher self, or oversoul and, the physical self. This physical self was endowed with sufficient DNA memory to allow us to record our experiences so that, ultimately, we would find answers as to why it had been so difficult to maintain the whole soul within the physical body.

Each of those involved in this plan elected to go through a series of lifetimes including experiences that would enable them to learn how to be fully human again. According to my researches, we didn’t plan to spend forever learning this! Instead, we gave ourselves a time limit of round about 7,000 years, which is why, at the present time, the energies we are experiencing on Earth are so powerfully supportive of inner transformation and growth.
