Wesak Full Moon Festival of the Buddha

8 May 2017

Celebrating Wesak Full Moon Taurus Festival of the Buddha, the spiritual intermediary between the highest spiritual centre Shamballa and the Hierarchy. The Buddha is the expression of the wisdom of God, the embodiment of light and the indicator of divine purpose. The Festival is fixed annually in relation to the full moon of May, it is the great Eastern Festival. The Forces of Enlightenment are active at the time of the Weak Festival.

These Forces emanate from the heart of God, they are related to divine understanding and can reach and strengthen those who love and serve their fellow beings. This energy transmits the second principle of divinity, love-wisdom, of which the Buddha and the Christ are the two outstanding expression. The forces of enlightenment initiate the new world education.

Keynote: ‘I SEE AND WHEN THE EYE IS OPENED, ALL IS LIGHT.’

I was born on a First Quarter in the constellation Aquarius.   This Birthday falls on a First Quarter Moon in the constellation Aquarius. Being born on a First Quarter Moon is less common than many of the other moon phases. Like the Full, New and Last Quarter Moon, the First Quarter occurs at a very specific time and on just one day of the moons cycle.    The moon is 50% illuminated and getting brighter each day until the Full Moon. Since the moon is gaining strength people born during this phase are very strong physically and mentally and constantly on the go.

Check out your Birthday!  http://www.moongiant.com/birthday-moon/

Much is being revealed to us, very slowly information is disclosed that has been known to the privileged few since a long time! The first I read about this was over 40 years ago! Technology helps with research and proof! Read for yourself without judging. If you think we, our human species, are only a few thousand years old, you can think again its more like hundreds of thousands! And if you think we always looked the same, you can think again too. Many civilizations have come and gone off the face of the earth, many of them more advanced and more civilized than we are.

Alma Deutscher Composer Singer Violinist and Pianist!

My thanks to Philippa and her blog entry Involution Science and God, Reality Redefined, about ‘Genius – The Saviour’ Alma Deutscher. Felt I had to blog about Alma myself after watching her on you tube, speaking and playing the violin and the piano. What a beautiful wise angelic creature! It seems like the spirits of Mozart, Bach, Schubert, Tschaikovsky and other felt compassion for us miserable ignorant suffering humans, got together and decided to have some fun within the spirit of this little girl to bring some joy to our world. She seems to be having great fun.

ENJOY! and please share share share! Spread joy to as many as possible.

 

When Baghdad was the Centre of the Scientific World!

In 2011,  I published my book ‘Once Upon a Time in Baghdad’ a creative non fiction book about my two decades life in Baghdad, where I was born. What prompted me to write my book at the time, were the many questions from my European and American friends. Was I a Moslem, did we also walk around covered from head to foot, were we also poor, and more such ignorant questions. Many were surprised to hear that Baghdad during the time I grew up there, was a cosmopolitan multi cultural buzzing town, that Christians Moslems and Jews and others lived and worked side by side, that I drove a car at the age of 16, that I attended a French Convent and learned 3 languages, that we watched the latest Hollywood movies, with Arabic subtitles, bought Vogue magazines for our fashion,  etc.  I decided to put down on paper what life was like in those years,  known as the golden decades of Baghdad, seen and experienced from a young Christian woman’s viewpoint. There were no chadors, hijab, niqab or burka, and only the illiterates and the farmer women walked around covered in a black abaya, their faces uncovered except for the very few, the very Moslem orthodox. The women were never dressed so drab and colourless in sad dark colours as they dress today and their hair was never covered. In fact, I was never even aware of these modes of Moslem dress until the past few decades when suddenly they appeared out of nowhere. They might have existed in Saudi Arabia or Yemen perhaps but these were considered backward countries. During the Moslem Feast days especially, the Moslem families, women and children, came out dressed in their most loud shiny colourful dresses of  taffetas and silks, singing and dancing happily.  We all lived respecting one another without imposing our cultures on one another. We, the non-Moslems, were all very aware that we lived in a Moslem country, but we were free to live according to our religious beliefs without fear. The local schools and businesses for example, had Fridays off, the Moslem day of rest, while the Christian community had Saturdays and Sundays off and of course the Jews their holy Sabbath. Everyone practiced their faith without any threats from anyone.

In my book, I take the reader on a journey through life in the city of Baghdad as I relate our family life. No one interested in history and who wants to know Baghdad as it was 50 years ago, should miss this. All young Arab men and women should read this to be aware that the Islam they know today was not always as they know it, namely, violent, artificial, limiting and debilitating, imposed on them by some religious fanatic leaders taking them backwards in time to ignorance and darkness rather than forward evolving to a bright future for the Arab world in this 21st century.

When I was writing my book I did a lot of research through libraries, also on the web. To my dismay only a couple of years after that, I discovered that much of the information that I had found at the time had disappeared, information changed, websites disappearing. By whom or why or to what purpose? Who knows!

Anyway I found this information today that I thought I’d like to share about the ancient history of Baghdad, the city of the One Thousand and One Nights. If you are remotely interested in history  you should read this article that appeared in 2010 in the Guardian. Read it before it disappears too by some crazies who want to change history!

Here’s the link to the article

And perhaps you’d like to read my book ‘Once Upon a Time in Baghdad’ so that you have an idea of what life was really like for normal families in a famous Arab City before the Islamic movement. The invasion of Baghdad by the US removing Saddam Hussein changed it forever to it worst ever for the Iraqi people. According to them they removed a monster, but what they created is far worse for the country, they created monsters who are threatening the whole civilised world. Perhaps this was the plan all along, again who knows!  Here’s an image of a street in Baghdad from the 1950s.

It literally breaks my heart to see what Baghdad and the Iraqis are going through today. Every one who I have ever known has left the country! But I have friends who have relatives who still live there and we get the real news of what goes on there and not that of the general media. It’s ironic that the people are far worse off today than they  ever were before the US, driven by greed for oil and power, invaded, killing thousands and looting the country. Of course you do not hear that from the regular media but any Iraqi living there today will tell you that. You can actually also find videos by guilt ridden US soldiers who tell the same story.

 

Alerts to Threats in 2015 Europe from John Cleese!

Remember John Cleese? he’s funny! Here’s a foto of him to remind you. I have to admit he still looks good! No puffed lips job, no eyes lift and jaws lifts, that give him that permanent surprise look! Of course he looks older, but still handsome and above all natural. And what more he still has a sense of humor! Screen Shot 2015-09-13 at 18.31.52

I am sharing this article posted on my private Facebook versus my professional Facebook page. Posted by Raja Choudry who shared Bernadette Bunge’s photo. So now that I have given the credit to where its due I shall copy the article here below for you to read. It’s brilliant.

ALERTS TO THREATS IN 2015 EUROPE From JOHN CLEESE

The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent events in Syria and have therefore raised their security level from “Miffed” to “Peeved.” Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to “Irritated” or even “A Bit Cross.” The English have not been “A Bit Cross” since the blitz in 1940 when tea supplies nearly ran out. Terrorists have been re-categorised from “Tiresome” to “A Bloody Nuisance.” The last time the British issued a “Bloody Nuisance” warning level was in 1588, when threatened by the Spanish Armada.

The Scots have raised their threat level from “Pissed Off” to “Let’s get the Bastards.” They don’t have any other levels. This is the reason they have been used on the front line of the British army for the last 300 years.

The French government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror alert level from “Run” to “Hide.” The only two higher levels in France are “Collaborate” and “Surrender.” The rise was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed France ‘s white flag factory, effectively paralysing the country’s military capability.

Italy has increased the alert level from “Shout Loudly and Excitedly” to “Elaborate Military Posturing.” Two more levels remain: “Ineffective Combat Operations” and “Change Sides.”

The Germans have increased their alert state from “Disdainful Arrogance” to “Dress in Uniform and Sing Marching Songs.” They also have two higher levels: “Invade a Neighbour” and “Lose.”

Belgians, on the other hand, are all on holiday as usual; the only threat they are worried about is NATO pulling out of Brussels ..

The Spanish are all excited to see their new submarines ready to deploy. These beautifully designed subs have glass bottoms so the new Spanish navy can get a really good look at the old Spanish navy.

Australia, meanwhile, has raised its security level from “No worries” to “She’ll be right, Mate.” Two more escalation levels remain: “Crikey! I think we’ll need to cancel the barbie this weekend!” and “The barbie is cancelled.” So far no situation has ever warranted use of the last final escalation level.

Regards,
John Cleese ,
British writer, actor and tall person

And as a final thought – Greece is collapsing, the Iranians are getting aggressive, and Rome is in disarray. Welcome back to 430 BC.

Life is too short…

Did you say People or Sheeple?!

Now that’s a new word for you! I’ve never heard it before. Yes I’ve heard of people being or acting like sheep but sheeple? Well, why ever not. New words are being invented all the time. So what does sheeple mean? These are the people who what in the spiritual world are referred to as being asleep! They go through life asleep, not literally sleeping but going through life on auto pilot, they eat, drink, have sex, talk, laugh, dance, shop designer clothes, smoke, drink coca cola, or eat hamburgers etc. but they are not really alive. They are not awake, they are not conscious. Sounds terrible right? Yes, it does, but it is very true. So you better have a good look at yourself and answer the question are you a people or you a sheeple? The article written by Dylan Charles on spirit science is worth reading.  Scary stuff!

Here are some questions for you and you alone can answer them. Be honest because if you’re not then you’re kidding no one but yourself. Are you an independent thinker? Do you question what you hear, what you see, what you read and what you’re told? Are you aware of your thoughts and actions, are you in control of your emotions or are you a slave to your emotions. Do you follow the latest fads in food, even if it makes you feel terrible? Do you follow the latest fads in fashion even if it means you spending your last hard earned dollar? Do you have to have what your friends have, go where they go? Do you care what the neighbours think or say about you? Questions only you can answer! Do you really believe you are free?

Infinite Spirit! Impossible to destroy!

Last year’s war between Israel and Hamas killed an estimated 2’205 Palestinians and 71 Israelis. Reconstruction is only just getting underway of the estimated 18’000 housing units in Gaza that were destroyed or severely damaged during the 50-day conflict. One of the big mysteries of life! You can kill and destroy as much as you want but Spirit lives on! The human Spirit and hope is alive and thrives. Here’s proof of that. Don’t you ever wonder how some people can survive the worst of atrocities done unto them and they still survive, not only that, but hope and create beauty to boot? I am always in awe of the human spirit! Here’s an article crossed my desk this morning about a colourful neighbourhood in the middle of Gaza Strip.

The injustice, horrors, indignities and humiliation that these people have to suffer on a daily basis and still……  Read the article and watch the videos. In a video from the Institute for Middle East Understanding, an American non profit org that aims to increase the public’s awareness of Palestinians, Saedi, a Palestinian artist, explains just how his vision for an environment filled with beauty came to spread. So far 30 homes in the neighbourhood have been painted, much to the delight of Al Zaytoon’s younger residents. They call it Al Zaytoon neighbourhood. Zaytoon is the arabic word for olives. Gaza Strip Their olive farms, their livelihood, that have been taken from them by force by the Israelis driving them out of their homes of many generations.  These Palestinians have no army no navy and no air force so how can it be called a war? It’s like David and Goliath. Goliath has stepped in, massacred destroyed occupied and taken what they ever want regardless and exercises an apartheid regime to boot, to trample some more on the weaker. Let’s just say it how it is. No matter on which side your sympathies lie  you have to see this injustice for what it is.  How can we find peace in our world if these things continue based on pure ugly hate. What leaves me speechless is the very fact that nobody ever mentions. The Israelis say nothing about what the Germans did to them, all their hate about the holocaust has shifted to the Arabs. Are they too scared of the Germans and they don’t dare, so they vent their hate against the weaker and now do the same unto the Palestinians? Or is this subject taboo? Not to mention so many other just as bad atrocities that people have suffered all over the world that have been forgotten and are never mentioned.

The way things are going for us today I think we have many other dangers that we need to really worry about, dangers that are much more serious and much bigger than what we can imagine, that are threatening our very existence and civilised way of life. Not enough attention is given to that. Again I wonder why. Give me beauty, peace, laughter, harmony, love, compassion and joy, any time all the time. That is what we are here to enjoy. To live and enjoy and let others live and enjoy too. Sounds naive, I don’t think so. Just aware and practical. Screen Shot 2015-08-09 at 08.36.07 From the stones of the destruction we will build plant basins to grow flowers. Said told IMEU.
