Tuesday, 09 September, 2014 – CBC News Headlines

Tuesday, 09 September, 2014  -( 58˚F / 14˚C & Mostly Clear in Ithaca @ 8:45 am )-  —Today is National Teddybear Day in the U.S.A. & Intergalactic/Inter-dimensional/International ‘wish Jim Wellington a Happy Birthday on Leo Tolstoy’s birthday’ day on planet Earth & ‘beyhond’.— 😉

{ I’ve been doing this because I believe that the CBC may be more honest and more respectable than Media here in the U.S.A., AND not a lot of people in the U.S. may know that or have access to anyone who might point them toward the CBC & their web site. }

{ & again, these are not links. If you want to read these stories, listen to sound clips, or see any video -if there is any video- go to CBC dot CA/news. —Thanks. ———djo——— }

Spiritual quote of the day, “In an interview, Mahavishnu John McLaughlin said that his Guru had completely changed a lot of his thinking when, after John said, “I can’t work with that guy-” the Guru said, -‘Yes you can, the difficulties you have in working with this person are a chance for you to grow and learn to overcome your self imposed limitations’ – & I mean to tell ya, that bit of inspiration blew a hole in my ability to believe that people who oppose us are tools of some hypothetical devil- That was an eye opener- or maybe a soul- or spirit-opener?” ———Jim Wellington  { I have that on tape- Happy Birthday, Jim —djo— }

This is essentially how science works. – But because we really don’t like the inconvenience or discomfort that can come with changing long-held beliefs and habits, we can instead resolve the conflict by seeking excuses to downplay the importance of the new evidence and rationalize away any need to change our ways. – We can see both methods at work in how we dealt with the emerging truth about the dangers of tobacco. We eventually changed our habits, but it took decades for us to face the truth. – In the end, the “inconvenient truth” always wins, but our desire to ignore it often costs us time and, as in the tobacco example, many lives. – We are now confronted with an issue that won’t allow us the luxury of decades to change our behaviour. Our pursuit of shale gas and continued use of fossil fuels have severe, undeniable and observable consequences. – We can stay on this course only by ignoring the evidence in three areas: public health, climate change and economics.” & There’s more at >>—-> Link: Opinion Page linked to this issue  —djo— } {*** & The people who crack the hardest are those who believe they are the most stable – & Those who believe they are fighting for a future prosperity they have been lied to and convinced that Fracking is the way to go are among those who believe they’re the stable ones and we’re wacko nut jobs protesting because we’re horny and looking for other wacko nut jobs to procreate with.

Moving Into A More Positive Future?

Moving Into A More Positive Future?

Screen Shot of Vernon Mahabal’s Book, “The Secret Code On You Hands / An Illustrated Guide to Palmistry “

In the second half of Coast to Coast a.m. tonight, George Noory is interviewing Vernon Mahabal (<— Link to Palmistry Website ). My first instinct would have been, “Well- I guess I’ll skip this one.”

But I’m working, too busy to change the station, and he’s making sense.

“Palmistry?” But he’s talking about trends that he sees coming. The message is very positive, although he sees a possible break-up of the United States into several regional governments with two basic polarities dividing those regional “Provinces” (he called them provinces a couple times) Those two groups will be “A”— [my distinction, he didn’t label them anything] The “Go-Getters” Materialistic, Patriotic, Nationalistic (( ESTJ’s)) and “B” — The more Creative, Perceptive, Community Minded (( Supportive, Nurturing )) types.

He says that the sneaky, demonic, string pulling, hidden, poisonous types who have been trying to run this Country and the World will lose their grip and in-fighting will destroy each other.

According to Vernon Mahabal, our world has moved into a much more Positive 18 year cycle, where most people’s idea of prosperity will be a lot different than it was from the 40′s to the 80′s. There may be some rough times ahead as the bad guys try to bring it all down, and the poisonous old ways die hard, but we will emerge stronger.There will be a kind of Hopi [a very spiritual tribe of Native Americans in the Southwestern desert] philosopy, “Create your own occupation and you will find your Freedom”, that more and more people will adopt and will lead to empowerment.

We will add a link to this page, where you can go find his site after this article is way down the list somewhere. (( We will probably add a link to Coast to Coast am, too, where you can go and sign up as an ‘insider’ ((( Not Free – they will charge you $ but you can sign up for a short time and download tons of interesting shows from their archives, I think they have 5 years of past shows available to subscribers ))) & if you do subscribe tonight’s downloaded podcasts may be a real good place to start. ))

{2:30 am, Wednesday, July 30 2014 here in New York State,  10°C / 51°F & the skies are dark and clear.}

—I just copied and pasted the above article here, from one of the other blogs I’m mixed up with, changed a couple words and added a little bit, like the explanation of who the Hopi are and where they live.

& Like I said this morning, I was impressed with this person. He is extraordinarily spiritual and reading palms is only one of the ways he expresses his gifts.

Things he said about Palmistry were intriguing, like -If your ring finger is longer than your index or pointer finger, you’re more likely to be creative, perceptive, introspective, possibly artistic, live in the moment, and not be as intense about being in control and achieving success the way most western cultures perceive ‘Success’. If your index finger (pointer) is longer than the ring finger, you are probably more organized, goal oriented and assertive- (He describes these people as being ‘Patriotic’ and materialistic.) { I’ve understood that these tendencies are built into your personality before you are actually born and you can’t change your nature on this level. You can’t take a thoughtful, sensitive, artistic kid and work him half to death, force him to exercise and practice physical skills, until he falls down totally exhausted every evening, in order to turn him into a football hero type. His (or her) soul and spirit are just not wired that way. People these days are becoming a lot more receptive to accepting the fact than not everybody can be, or wants to be, the epitome of the All-American Sports Hero, wearing a high school or university sweater with big letters to show the world they’ve achieved little town fame and prowess, and being followed around by uniformed cheerleaders with sparkling hope in their eyes. }

What if your first and third fingers are the same length? This might indicate that you are a balanced person. You might find success in both artistic expression and leadership. You might be the leader of a successful band, or the guiding force behind an art gallery that keeps local artists (including yourself) from starving to death.

—He also said that children who grew up after the internet was invented (and had access to that internet) and are just now graduating from universities or coming into their own as young adults have a completely different view of everything than those of us who came along before the internet. { That almost qualifies for a, “Well -duh-!” But since he said that last night, I’ve been thinking and feeling that, yes, this is going on a lot more deeply and profoundly than most people realize. }

—But what I am calling this guy’s ‘gifts’ are his intuition and his ability to sense where the people whose hands he has to touch to his palmistry work are heading in life and what obstacles they face and after doing so many readings (and teaching others to do those readings) he has practiced and developed his intuition to the point where he can see trends.

—I have to tell you that his impressions of the future include things that I only heard before from two people whose spiritual presence was so amazing and so strong, even I could feel something when I walked into the room where they were (and both of them turned and smiled like they felt my presence. One of them told me I had a gift and if I developed that gift I’d be able to share my hard won insights with others and I could be pretty good at it. At the time I was thinking they’d read somebody else and mistook me for that person, but it almost feels like my time is coming, and, like they told me, by sharing what I’ve learned (the hard way?) I might be able to zoom ahead with increasing speed and surprise myself with what I will learn in this second half of my life on this planet- They told me, (way back when I had to struggle to get up and go to work every day, just to make enough money to make sure Rachel had a decent, sensitive, attentive and trustworthy babysitter and enough food to eat and clothes to wear and all that… I thought my life had ended when my wife ran away with crazies from California-) They told me that the future was not one thousand percent stamped into stone tablets, but what might happen and could probably happen would be this regionalization and possible break up of the USA into  several “autonomous” regions that might not exactly get along very well- with intellectual and philosophical differences that would seem to be insurmountable- But that later on, everybody would slowly absorb and come to embrace higher ideals and understanding of who we are spiritually and a lot of our differences would seem less and less significant. Like when you’re growing up and the people who go to school in the next town are the enemy. A couple years later the people in the next town wear different colored uniforms when they play football, but they’re in the same league with you and the people in the next state might be your real enemy. Later, the people in a different section of the country might seem to be your enemies, and if you keep growing, you should hopefully come to the realization that you don’t need any enemies at all to be yourself. If you want to enjoy life to its fullest, you have to grow beyond the b.s. that seeped into your mind when you were a kid, sitting in front of the television, getting all excited over war movies. Or sitting at the computer, killing alien invaders or monsters from some nether world- ( Sorry I picked all these images that guys relate to. Maybe somebody else can join our staff and give us the women’s point of view?)

Monday, July 28, 2014.

We’re looking forward to tonight’s guest on Coast to Coast a.m., Peter Mathews. (<—- Link to his web site )

He has a book for sale on that web site, “Dollar Democracy:/with Liberty and Justice for Some;/ How to Reclaim the American Dream for All.” -by Peter Mathews.

I haven’t read the book, So I can’t add it to our “Must Reads” yet. But scanning his web site (“Powered by WordPress.org”) looks encouraging.

—Jassper uploaded this through a computer using Google Chrome on a mac mini that has an intel chip but not the latest and greatest, he gets constant messages that tell him the Google Chrome will no longer update or support his browser because his computer has out of date hardware. (We HATE this kind of B.S. Macs used to be above this kind of doo doo.  He complained that the editing / posting page gave him no opportunity to include any photos or use categories or tags. So he sent me the screen shot of the book cover and I think I got that loaded here, I think we’re good-)
