Happy Float-Day on Januari Fourth!


From news-hound.net:

SeEJ7yI

It has been revealed by the British astronomer Patrick Moore that, on the morning of January 4th 2014,  an extraordinary astronomical event will occur. At exactly 9:47 am, the planet Pluto will pass directly behind Jupiter, in relation to the Earth. This rare alignment will mean that the combined gravitational force of the two planets would exert a stronger tidal pull, temporarily counteracting the Earth’s own gravity and making people weigh less. Moore calls this the Jovian-Plutonian Gravitational Effect.

Moore told scientists that they could experience the phenomenon by jumping in the air at the precise moment the alignment occurred. If they do so, he promised, they would experience a strange floating sensation.

Astronomers have long been aware that there would be an alignment of the planets on that date, when Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto would be on the same side of the Sun, within an arc 95 degrees wide. But now the effect could be expected as the gravitational effect of the other planets on the Earth’s crust is maximum even at their closest approach.

If you think you will be able to float around your house then you will be mistaken. BUT if you jump in the air at 9:47AM local time on January 4th 2014, it should take you about 3 seconds to land back on your feet instead of the usual 0.2 seconds.

 

ET’s Knocking on the Door.


Ralphie: I’ve heard from three or four different sources on the internet that governments are coming clean with information on extraterrestrials, which they’ve apparently kept from the general public(for security reasons 😉 ) for at least eighty years.

Further down I will show an excerpt of an article, where the Mexican president ordered disclosure of facts pertaining to visits from ET’s to Earth going back to the fifteen-hundreds and some say even as far back as three thousand years ago.

I’ve also read that president Medvedev of the Russian federation has admonished the US to come clean about this or they will.

Even the vatican has made preparations to deal with how this new information will affect their faith.

To me this can mean only one thing: somebody or something is forcing their hand, because I do not believe that they would admit to our not being alone voluntarily. I predict something really BIG happening in the near future. Maybe aliens making a public address to the world, I couldn’t say, but definitely something humongous.

This might also explain why big bucks don’t care either way about protecting the planet’s environment: they’ve known all along and have ‘their’ exit procedure planned already, I should think.

Mexican Government Releases Proof of E.T.’s and Ancient Space Travel

In what will soon be considered as the Holy Grail of extraterrestrial research, the Mexican government has released ancient documents proving the existence of E.T.’s once and for all.

Mayn Documents

[1] The two circles near the center of the artifact appear to be earth. [2] This appears to be a spacecraft of some type. [3] This appears to be a massive comet or asteroid headed toward earth. [4] Appears to be a specially designed spacecraft capable of deflecting a large comet or meteor, such as NASA “Deep Impact”. [5] Appears to be an astronaut in control of a craft. [6] What appears to be an intelligently controlled spacecraft.

How to spot the International Space Station.


From EarthSky:

More than a half a million people have signed up with NASA to receive alerts when the ISS flies overhead. Here’s how:

iss-dave-walker-580

Is it a meteor? Is it a plane? It might be the International Space Station (ISS).

Every so often, the ISS becomes visible in the night sky. To us on Earth, it looks like a bright star moving quickly above the horizon. The ISS is so bright, it can even been seen from the center of a city. Then, just as suddenly as it appeared, it disappears. How do you know when you can see the ISS in your night sky?

NASA has started a Spot the Station program where people from around the world can sign up to receive alerts when the ISS will be visible from your location. You can receive alerts via email or a text message to your phone. Typically, alerts are sent out a few times each month when the station’s orbit is near your location. Visit the Spot the Station website here to sign up, and view a list of upcoming sighting opportunities.

Notices will only be sent to you when the ISS will be clearly visible from your location for at least a couple of minutes. If you live north of 51.6 degrees latitude (for example, in Alaska), you will likely have to visit the website to find sighting opportunities because notifications in this region would be rare.

The notices contain information on where to look for the ISS in the night sky. Just note where the sun sets and you can easily find the direction where the station will appear (for example, in the southwest or in the northwest). The height at which the station will appear is given in degrees. Just remember that 90 degrees is directly over your head. Any number less than 90 degrees will mean that the station will appear somewhere between the horizon and the 90 degree mark. The station is so bright that it is really hard to miss if you’re looking in the correct direction. Alternatively, you can stretch out your fist at arm’s length toward the horizon, which is equivalent to about 10 degrees. Then, just use the appropriate number of fist-lengths to find the location marker, e.g., four fist-lengths from the horizon would be equivalent to about 40 degrees.

So far, more than half a million people have signed up to receive alerts from NASA’s Spot the Station program. I’ve seen the station fly over twice now and it’s a pretty amazing experience—gets you thinking about how far our technology has advanced.

 

The Poetic Edda.

Here are the first twelve stanzas of the Poetic Edda, as translated from the Icelandic by Henry Adams Bellows, [1936]. To read more click the link at the top.

1. Hearing I ask | from the holy races,
From Heimdall’s sons, | both high and low;
Thou wilt, Valfather, | that well I relate
Old tales I remember | of men long ago.

2. I remember yet | the giants of yore,
Who gave me bread | in the days gone by;
Nine worlds I knew, | the nine in the tree
With mighty roots | beneath the mold.

3. Of old was the age | when Ymir lived;
Sea nor cool waves | nor sand there were;
Earth had not been, | nor heaven above,
But a yawning gap, | and grass nowhere.

4. Then Bur’s sons lifted | the level land,
Mithgarth the mighty | there they made;
The sun from the south | warmed the stones of earth,
And green was the ground | with growing leeks.

5. The sun, the sister | of the moon, from the south
Her right hand cast | over heaven’s rim;
No knowledge she had | where her home should be,
The moon knew not | what might was his,
The stars knew not | where their stations were.

6. Then sought the gods | their assembly-seats,
The holy ones, | and council held;
Names then gave they | to noon and twilight,
Morning they named, | and the waning moon,
Night and evening, | the years to number.

7. At Ithavoll met | the mighty gods,
Shrines and temples | they timbered high;
Forges they set, and | they smithied ore,
Tongs they wrought, | and tools they fashioned.

8. In their dwellings at peace | they played at tables,
Of gold no lack | did the gods then know,–
Till thither came | up giant-maids three,
Huge of might, | out of Jotunheim.

9. Then sought the gods | their assembly-seats,
The holy ones, | and council held,
To find who should raise | the race of dwarfs
Out of Brimir’s blood | and the legs of Blain.

10. There was Motsognir | the mightiest made
Of all the dwarfs, | and Durin next;
Many a likeness | of men they made,
The dwarfs in the earth, | as Durin said.

11. Nyi and Nithi, | Northri and Suthri,
Austri and Vestri, | Althjof, Dvalin,
Nar and Nain, | Niping, Dain,
Bifur, Bofur, | Bombur, Nori,
An and Onar, | Ai, Mjothvitnir.

12. Vigg and Gandalf) | Vindalf, Thrain,
Thekk and Thorin, | Thror, Vit and Lit,
Nyr and Nyrath,– | now have I told–
Regin and Rathsvith– | the list aright.

Quantum Awakening.


1235509_10151631140245904_359506664_n

Beautifully written from Quantum Awakening:

We are all in the birthing of a new consciousness. The shift has happened. The mind is expanding into a new awareness of our unity and oneness. In Reality is the equality in identity. We are waking up to the awareness of our true Self. These are exciting, intense times. It is an exploration into the unknown. Diving so deep within the consciousness beyond good and bad into the divinity that exists within us all. It is a permanent state of Mind that awaits your homecoming.
Everything must be questioned. Through non-judgement the mind is opened like a flower, basking in wonder, not labeling or explaining. It just abides in stillness and is totally present. You get so high out of the 3rd dimension that you see that the only thing to do is to observe. In the pure Observation there is a let go, no need to explain or complain about what is on the screen of images.
It is the I AM of existence. Before Abraham was, I AM.
This is the miraculous awakening that is inevitable. You are dreaming a dream of illusion, unconscious thoughts just arising into a mirage of visual perception. You give everything the meaning that it has to you. I see an apple, you see an orange. All interpretation is judgement. A validation of self concept is maintained through the judging. The self-image always needs a defense. who is right and who is wrong and who cares.
Open the mind to anything and Everything and question everything. Through the questioning the natural opening occurs. The mind opens to wisdom and knowledge from the most High of High. To be sourced, to be done through is an exhilarating Living Experience that we long for. To step back and let Him lead the way, is a living experience to those who trust in the Divine Creator. It is not I that doeth these things, but my Father in Heaven, the Direct Experience.
Put the Kingdom of Heaven first and all things will be added unto thee. Oh the gift to know, that I do not know. Becoming like a child forever in the wonder and glee of the unknown. Love needs no defense, It just IS. This purity and innocence of Awareness radiates through out the Universe and extends forever and ever. The continual ever-expanding, blooming of the flower of Truth.
Wake up, my sweet, you are dreaming a dream of illusion. Be reborn everyday,hold onto to nothing, you are completely safe. Welcome home to a life ever new,fresh and clear of the past. Forgive Everything and you are free. Forgive Everything and you will open the door to a whole new fresh, awareness, be reborn today and everyday, forever in the Kingdom do I abide, along with you!

Comet-chasing mission Rosetta: 100 days to wake-up.


Rosetta-Philae-lander-on-comet-nucleus-e1381507940921

The Philae lander at work on Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. While Rosetta studies the comet from close orbit, Philae will obtain measurements from the surface. Immediately after touchdown in November 2014, a harpoon will be fired to anchor the lander and prevent it from escaping the comet’s extremely weak gravity. The minimum targeted mission time for Philae is one week, but surface operations may continue for many months. The measurements from the Rosetta orbiter will last from August 2014 to the end of 2015. Image credit: ESA / AOES Medialab.

From earthsky.org:

Rosetta will wake up soon from deep-space hibernation to reach the comet it has been cruising towards for a decade.

ESA’s comet-chasing mission Rosetta will wake up in 100 days’ time from deep-space hibernation to reach the destination it has been cruising towards for a decade.

Comets are the primitive building blocks of the solar system and the likely source of much of Earth’s water, perhaps even delivering to Earth the ingredients that helped life evolve.

By studying the nature of a comet close up with an orbiter and lander, Rosetta will show us more about the role of comets in the evolution of the solar system.

Rosetta was launched on 2 March 2004, and through a complex series of flybys – three times past Earth and once past Mars – set course to its destination: comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. It also flew by and imaged two asteroids, Steins on 5 September 2008 and Lutetia on 10 July 2010.

In July 2011 Rosetta was put into deep-space hibernation for the coldest, most distant leg of the journey as it travelled some 800 million kilometres from the sun, close to the orbit of Jupiter. The spacecraft was oriented so that its solar wings faced the sun to receive as much sunlight as possible, and it was placed into a slow spin to maintain stability.

Now, as both the comet and the spacecraft are on the return journey back into the inner solar system, the Rosetta team is preparing for the spacecraft to wake up.

Comet rained fire on Earth.


Comet rained fire on Earth 28 million years ago, study says.

From GlogalPost.com:

An artist’s rendition of the comet exploding in Earth’s atmosphere above Egypt.

An artist’s rendition of the comet exploding in Earth’s atmosphere above Egypt.

Twenty eight million years ago a giant comet smashed into Earth and exploded in the atmosphere.

The explosion rained fire over modern day Africa and left a layer of silica glass over the Sahara desert.

The glass was formed as the comet’s fire heated up the sands of the Sahara.

Further evidence of the cataclysmic event were lacking until now.

South African scientists said that they have found the first evidence of the comet in the form a small black pebble.

The pebble was discovered by an Egyptian geologist several years ago but chemical analyses were only recently completed.

Scientists found that the black pebble was part of the comet’s nucleus and is the first such specimen ever discovered on Earth.

“Comets always visit our skies – they’re these dirty snowballs of ice mixed with dust – but never before in history has material from a comet ever been found on Earth,” said Professor David Block of Wits University in a statement.

“If you compare it with meteorites … they contain only about three per cent carbon. And this thing contains 65 per cent carbon,” he said, according to AFP.

Scientists believe that the findings will not only help to better identify similar rocks but also help us learn more about planets and their origins.

One interesting fact is that yellow silica created by the impact was found in ancient jewellery in the tomb of King Tut.

The research will be published in the journal Earth and Planetary Science Letters.

 

What’s Your Celtic Sign?

For Ralphie:

Oak Wood

Strong  Masculine energy.  Oak is a sacred tree of Celtic Astrology 10 June to 7 July.  The Druids associated the oak with the Wren.  Closely aligned with the elements Earth, Water, and Spirit .  The Oak is considered to be the most powerful and the most sacred to the Druids.  Wizards consider this the most amplified wood to use to in spells that work with time and counter spells.  Sacred to the Irish God Dagda.

Magical Properties: Truth, steadfast knowledge, protection.  Oak wands bring vitality and long life.  To the ancient Celtic people, oak was the protector, provider, benevolent king of the trees.  Utilized as a healing wood, and very will grounded considering its strong connection to the earth.  This wood helps center the mind, allowing it to focus on the task at hand and ignore distractions.  Oak help promote both observation and intuition.  Oak magic inspires bravery, presence, leadership skills, prosperity, and strength.

OCEANIC BLACK HOLES FOUND IN SOUTHERN ATLANTIC.
 (http://ow.ly/o7UqG): Black holes are a tear in the fabric of space-time from which nothing escapes, not even light. They take on a mythic significance in popular culture as portals to alternate dimensions or grave threats to space travel. Astronomers are certain they exist out there in the universe, formed by the collapse of dead stars. Now, physicists have found mathematical analogs to black holes here on Earth, specifically in the southern Atlantic Ocean where eddies whirl about. Are we going to have our oceans SUCKED UP?! No. But they’ll still be pretty interesting: http://ow.ly/o7UqG

Mesmerizing GIFs of Breathing Earth.


BreathingEarth1-3

Posted by Jaclyn Skurie  on August 14, 2013:

The biodiversity of Earth as we know it is made up of millions of species—from Baobab trees to narwhals to tiny anemones attached to the ocean floor. But can we think of Earth in a holistic way, as one living entity of its own, instead of the sum of its parts?

This is what John Nelson illustrates in “Breathing Earth,” two animated GIFs he designed to visualize what a year’s worth of Earth’s seasonal transformations look like from outer space. Nelson—a data visualizer who works for software company IDV Solutions—stitched together from NASA’s website 12 cloud-free satellite photographs taken each month over the course of a year. Once the images were put together in a sequence, the mesmerizing animations showed what Nelson describes as “the annual pulse of vegetation and land ice.” (See: “Striking GIFs of Our Breathing Earth.”)

As the climate changes, the planet comes alive. Earth appears to breathe when ice cover grows and melts—in and out, in and out.

“I expected the poles to creep down and encompass lots of the northern hemisphere and I expected the change between green and dry, green and dry,” Nelson said.

“I expected there not to be much change in the southern hemisphere, and this [GIF] illustrates that change,” he added. “But when it came to life in front of me, I still had this ‘Gee, shucks,’ kind of moment.” (Related: “Earth’s Green Places Mapped in High Resolution.”)

Lapping waves of liquid light
behind the rainbow cascade down,
to effervesce in limpid pools
of angelic, quiet splendour.

Ghost sparrows release their loads,
ascending souls, to bathe therein,
and fully cleanse those gathering
of remaining earthly vestige.

Rows of seraphs wait in line,
to guide those charges, who answered
the Almighty’s call to Light,
into the arms of smiling kin.

Angels on Earth.

An angel on Earth
on loan from Above.
You present: its birth
and time of shared love.

But just for a while,
remember each smile,
for leave you she must,
though not back to dust.

For others are waiting,
their need just as great,
their time just as brief,
before starts the grief.

Please, do keep in mind:
to whom comes their kind?
To those who are blessed!
I speak not in jest.

Circles so tragic
do hold their magic:
Angels don’t forget
the bond they beget.

From Gypsy Spirit Wind:

O Great Spirit, who art before all else and who dwells in every object, in every person and in every place, we cry unto Thee. We summon… Thee from the far places into our present awareness.

O Great Spirit of the North, who gives wings to the waters of the air and rolls the thick snowstorm before Thee, Who covers the Earth with a sparkling crystal carpet above whose deep tranquillity every sound is beautiful. Temper us with strength to withstand the biting blizzards, yet make us thankful for the beauty which follows and lies deep over the warm Earth in its wake.

O Great Spirit of the East, the land of the rising Sun, Who holds in Your right hand the years of our lives and in Your left the opportunities of each day. Brace us that we may not neglect our gifts nor lose in laziness the hopes of each day and the hopes of each year.

O Great Spirit of the South, whose warm breath of compassion melts the ice that gathers round our hearts, whose fragrance speaks of distant springs and summer days, dissolve our fears, melt our hatreds, kindle our love into flames of true and living realities. Teach us that he who is truly strong is also kind, he who is wise tempers justice with mercy, he who is truly brave matches courage with compassion.

O Great Spirit of the West, the land of the setting Sun, with Your soaring mountains and free, wide rolling prairies, bless us with knowledge of the peace which follows purity of striving and the freedom which follows like a flowing robe in the winds of a well-disciplined life. Teach us that the end is better than the beginning and that the setting sun glorifies not in vain.

O Great Spirit of the heavens, in the day’s infinite blue and amid the countless stars of the night season, remind us that you are vast, that you are beautiful and majestic beyond all of our knowing or telling, but also that you are no further from us than the tilting upwards of our heads and the raising of our eyes.

O Great Spirit of Mother Earth beneath our feet, Master of metals, Germinator of seeds and the Storer of the Earth’s unreckoned resources, help us to give thanks unceasingly for Your present bounty.

O Great Spirit of our souls, burning in our heart’s yearning and in our innermost aspirations, speak to us now and always so that we may be aware of the greatness and goodness of Your gift of life and be worthy of this priceless privilege of living.

Taken by Apollo 8 crewmember Bill Anders on December 24, 1968, showing the Earth seemingly rising above the lunar surface. Note that this phenomenon is only visible from someone in orbit around the Moon. Because of the Moon’s synchronous rotation about the Earth (i.e., the same side of the Moon is always facing the Earth), no Earthrise can be observed by a stationary observer on the surface of the Moon.

of a Moon lake.

Myriads of Martians,

float by on cloud nine.

And lanky Lunatics
with crowns of ivy
grow green with envy.

An errant Dark-sider
struggles through the light
in search of ever-night.

Cosmic dust of the Andromeda Galaxy as reveale...

Cosmic dust of the Andromeda Galaxy as revealed in infrared light by the Spitzer Space Telescope. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

1. Time is a riddle:

About a year ago I asked myself the question: what is time? I told myself that the answer to this riddle is the key to innumerable mysteries. My subconscious has been working on this enigma ever since and I have finally seen a light at the end of the tunnel. I have come to some conclusions that befuddle me even more.

2. I am legion:

Some time ago I wrote: I am not, I never was and I will be… forever changing. I am a million persons to a million different people and more. I am a galaxy of swirling neurons, etc. in my own right. I am a purely subjective and changing perception of myself to myself. I am less than a speck of dust in relation to the enormity of the universe.

3. Relativity:

No thing is nothing and everything exists in relation to everything else. The abstract notion of 3 in a universe of 10 is not the same as 3 in a universe of 11. 3 changes all the while in relationship to an endless universe of numbers. I am a part of Andromeda, in the sense that I am an ever-changing energy being that is in physical contact with the universe, which includes Andromeda, which is also ever-changing, as is everything in between.

4. The times they are a-changing:

Everything, everywhere that was in the past is gone and will never return. It is forever being replaced by an ever-changing future. When we see a mountain, then the range that was there a hundred thousand years ago is gone forever through erosion and so forth, but so it is with everything. When we see a chair, the chair that was there a minute ago is gone to be replaced by an older chair in a newer future. This chair is also slowly decaying and undergoing any number of forces, such as gravity, magnetism, etcetera.

The present tense as we know it, the now, makes no sense either, because there is no point in time that can be caught or frozen, except in our inaccurate memories or fantasy. The only reality is change. We, and everyone and everything in the universe, are defined by our relationship to everyone and everything else in the universe, which is constantly changing. When we say that we live in the now, we are merely conscious of the changing nature of all things and are sharing in it.

5. Labels are lies:

A line is not a line, for it is a collection of dots between point A and point B that can NEVER be taken out of context of the whole and as the whole is ever-changing, the line changes with it. Remember that the places where point A and B are located in the universe are forever moving with that shifting universe. On Earth, they would move through rotation of the planet, which circles around the Sun, etcetera. And it goes even further than that. If you assume that the universe is expanding, then both points would be forever expanding with it.

Labels are an attempt to force order on the universe or to freeze-frame it and does not work. It’s like naming one grain of sand on the coast of the continent of Africa. Remember the parable about the pond forever changing with the pebble that was thrown into it? It goes further than that! The pond is a lie, a mental construct that exists only in our minds. In reality the pond is a cosmos in itself, full of living organisms and eroding walls, taking on more moisture or evaporating it all the while.

6. Jehovah:

The proper name of God in Hebrew translates into ‘I will be’ or in other words: ‘I, the whole of the universe, am forever changing’! I, the author, doubt everything but change. I have only questions and only one measly answer, which may be untrue aswell. Blessed be.

From the core of my being
I wish for the freeing
from the bonds of hatred

For the melting of frost
and the ice in their hearts,
for the knowledge that kindness
is stronger than might.

Go bring them my love,
whose supply is not finite,
for connected to many,
who stand in your light.

Together we stand, unafraid

The world is troubled, earth is torn.
Astral beings gathering strength,
Against the rising, terrible force, …
The beast has risen, now awake,
This path must run its course.
The sirens call, the banshees wail,
The armies will assemble,
Angels will gather arms of light,
Living and dead will tremble.
The core of earth will open up,
And lend dragons to the cause,
Earth and Fire, Air and water,
All will convene for these wars.
Spirits, sprites, elves and orcs,
And the children of the light,
Will subdue the deepest darkness,
And stand together in the fight.
The end will be a beginning,
The world will be reborn,
The darkness will be banished,
In the glory of the dawn.

What if you looked at Earth, the planet, as a machine, complete with silicone board and information highways? Or an enormous brain even?

Earth has fire in the middle for power, veins and  nodes of assorted metals (or minerals?) for relaying that power (and/or information?) across the grid, insulated by rock and sediment.

Water and air to cool it, although water might also convey information…

It has a positive and a negative pole and functions using a mysterious alternation or combination of magnetism and electricity.

Where do the ley lines come in? This could be a way of mapping the power pathways…

What if the gigantic monuments of the ancients were terminals to access this power and/or information?

About these monuments: on the, for them, paramount understanding of ‘as above,so below’, has anybody studied the bases or foundations of these monuments? What is underground should be equally, if not more, important than what can be seen above ground…

Ideas for a sci-fi book?

 

 

When is Forever?


rabbi nahman tomb

rabbi nahman tomb (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I know exactly on which day ‘forever’ falls. How do I know that? Let me tell you the story. I was in love with a woman, whom I thought was my twin soul. When I was with her, I could have sworn that she thought the same, silly me. Well, maybe she did but then, as is a woman’s prerogative and often man’s downfall, she changed her mind.

She actually pulled my sleeve a couple of times, with a twinkle in her eyes, telling me: “Hey, you, come back down to Earth, will you!” I was in seventh heaven and floating on cloud nine, but it wasn’t to be. First of all, she was a young widow and then, to top it all off, her beloved mother, who was my best friend, by the way, died of cancer. Those two deaths in two years time, messed her up to such an extent, that she decided she had to be alone, to recover from it all.

In no way was I to blame, she told me. Intellectually, I could understand this, of course. But my shattered heart was not so understanding. The higher you fly, the deeper the fall. This is how I know, that forever falls on March 31st. For she left me on April first, leaving me feeling like a fool and that the joke was on me.

This episode taught me a valuable lesson in survival. After six months of pure, unadulterated hell, I was ready to call it a day, but my indomitable spirit came to the rescue. It told me to stop hurting myself over something that could not be changed and to finally accept the fact, that she wouldn’t have me in her life anymore (for whatever reason). Acceptance is the key, hard though it may be. And believe you me, it was damned hard.

Three years later, I met a beautiful, wayward, gypsy princess, who swore to me, that she would love me till her dying day. We were inseparable and she told me, that I was the best thing that ever happened to her. And then, she had a brain hemorrhage and passed away, at the tender age of twenty-eight. She had kept her word, my sweet love, but…strike two! As you may imagine, I was a trifle upset with the Big Guy upstairs. There is supposed to be a reason for everything, but the only thing is, often I can’t see it.

So, I have been alone for almost five years. I’m a bit anxious to even look at another woman, for fear of “what next?”. And the misery of it all is that I do so love to love. “Without love, life has no meaning!” someone said. In my opinion, he or she was right. Rest assured that I have not given up hope.

In that, I agree with Rabbi Nachman from Breslav, who admonished us by categorically stating: “It is forbidden to despair!” Those are wise words and well worth listening to.But where is miss right? I am here, ready, willing and most of the time able. Fortunately, even though I am generally an impatient man, when it comes to things that really matter, I have the patience of a monk. And face it, until she shows up, I shall need it. But Lady, be warned, I have some serious hugging and kissing to catch up on!

Lunarized!

A full Moon tearing at my innards.

Mad wolves howling in my brain.

This ebb and flow of change…?

Dizzy, I wonder where is North?

Tidal waves of ferocious hope

crash against my fragile sanity.

A plethora of new prospects

spreads like rampant wildfire.

Drawn and quartered by indecision:

a collision of conflicting needs,

disintegrating and dispersing

on a searing wind of passion.

Destination: that alluring unknown,

Mistress of my dubious fate,

spins out of control

and cackles with irreverent glee

at the outcome only she can see.

 

 

 

Quintessence.

Man, born of stars:

his own galaxy.

Essence of four

birthed by the Moon.

Three times seven

reflecting the Matrix.

That illusive mirror

was always within.

Breathe sunlight

your progeny

is infinity.

Sirius-ly!

The Helix

is

everywhere.

Power.

Ions floating for eons,

bourne on the wind,

suddenly collide.

Lighting flashes

and seeks Earth

to embrace its power.

Slow-motion Thunder

follows suit,

rather LOUD,

but… as ever

too late

for the show.

Ballet of the Sea.

Drops of foam

defying gravity.

Endless body

stretching, flexing

awesome liquid muscles.

Edges tapping

a Titan’s rhythm

on Earth’s drum.

Paso doble

of the mighty twins.

The dance has just begun.

Beware!

From Sheila Kuhn

We return thanks to our mother, the earth,
which sustains us.
We return thanks to the rivers and streams,
which supply us with water.
We return thanks to all herbs,
which furnish medicines for the cure of our diseases.
We return thanks to the moon and stars,
which have given to us their light when the sun was gone.
We return thanks to the sun,
that has looked upon the earth with a beneficent eye.
Lastly, we return thanks to the Great Spirit,
in Whom is embodied all goodness,
and Who directs all things for the good of Her children.

Ode to Luna.

The first baby steps of all life
might well have died an infant’s death
were it not for out Mistress Moon
to stir the cauldron with her spoon.

For a mere stagnant pool of slime
would not have stood the test of time.
Only her tireless devotion
is what set the wheels in motion.

The soothing swing of ebb and flow,
that’s what started the merry show.
Her romancing of planet Earth
caused the miracle of this birth.

Allowing X to marry Y
is why we live and why we die.
When next Luna adorns the sky,
you should salute her and say: “Hi!”

A Rocky Heart!

When you last touched a rock,
did you feel it breathe
and its oh-so-slow heartbeat,
to the rhythm of the Earth?

Its thoughts may be somewhat sluggish
and its feeling not so sharp,
for its life does span the ages,
but its patience is renowned.

Ask the moss, who’s its companion
and is forever facing North,
if a rock is quick to change opinion
or direction or its course?

Nay, Sirs and Madams,
a rock is solid as a Pound,
dependable and trustworthy.
You ask anyone around!

Earth Song


I listen to the earth song

The humming of the land.

Wind howling round the eaves

And in the trees.

On the shore the sea

Rushes, gulls cry

Seals echo eerily.

Rain falls, drumming, pattering,

Streaming down the hillsides.

I hear the robin calling sweetly

At daybreak,

Tawny owls in the darkness.

Cat fights and the screams

of little creatures dying.

Hedgehogs crunching, frogs dropping

Ploppily into the pond.

The gentle base notes of the bees at noon.

Women singing lullabies.

Sky larks high above the dunes.

I listen to the earth song.

Enter The Magic!

Boadilla del Camino

Boadilla del Camino (Photo credit: notafalerni)

I landed in Portomarin at midday today, which leaves me with 86 kilometers to walk till Santiago. I´m out of money and am sitting by the side of the church to try to get the price of a bed and some food together. Some very nice German fellow invited me to join his little band of merry travellers for a picnic earlier, leaving me quite sated at the moment.

I slept in Barbadelo yesterday and went for a stroll through the village and in the surrounding countryside, when all of a sudden down an overgrown lane a strange felling came over me. It was as if a faery had touched me. I stopped and looked around  and my eyes came to rest on a oaktree that must have been at least eight hundred years old. Someone had put three big rocks into a hole in its trunk some decades earlier and the tree had by now half enveloped them.

I put one hand on a rock and the other on the trunk and felt a surge of energy wash through me. I thought for a second about trying to dislodge the rocks, but decided against it and let it lie(there must be a good reason for it!) I bowed my head in respect to this majestic giant and felt very young and foolish indeed with my paltry half a century of age. There was a wall next to the road, made up of rocks that seemed to have been put there when Mother Earth was still a virgin.

Vines were trying in vain to strangle the mammoth tress. I just stared and stared in wonder and clapped my hands with joy. I actually laughed out loud! I had found my magic at last. I´m reading a book by a professor named Park, called Voodoo Science, in which he scientifically proves that magic is not of this world. I beg to differ, for I am living it every day. Nothing spectacular, just little things, like items appearing out of nowhere just when you need them and so on.

I ask no-one to believe me, but should they travel at my side for a while, they would surely be astounded at what they´d see! I do worry sometimes(I´m only human), but every time something happens to show me that I really shouldn´t. If you are pure of heart and clean of mind, then things just come to you as and when you need them(at least on the Camino).

I´m reminded of that fellow in Boadillo, who told me that a pilgrim needs three virtues: humility, patience and the ability to adapt. O only hope that I´m not getting too big for y breeches, for Karma doesn´t like that.

I am missing my internet friends and family terribly though. I hope I can settle down soon and go online every day again as before. I´ve been giving the address of Ralphie´s Portal to everyone I befriend and pray that they pay us a visit. Here´s a big hug from yours truly, Ralphie!!!
