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.
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.
Here you can read Philippa’s blog Genius – The Saviour
and here you can be inspired, see and hear Alma Deutscher in action
Gives me personally great hope for humanity, that there will be light at the end of this dark tunnel of evil that we are currently experiencing, going forward to a Golden Age, as predicted by the ancients.
ENJOY! and please share share share! Spread joy to as many as possible.
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.
Here’s another image of my parents walking down al Rashid Street in the 1940s!

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.
I’ve been following world news the last weeks and getting more and more depressed! Needless to say it has not inspired to write at all. I wonder when the media will wake up to bring us good happy inspiring news of which there is much also around the world. If they would include just one such happy story in their news every day, it would lift up the spirit.
Here I found this which I’d like to share with you, it’s really food for the soul, listen to this 9 year old little girl Amira singing an aria from the opera Gianni Schicchi (1918) by Giacomo Puccini ! Sit back close your eyes and listen with your soul. You can find more about her on you tube.
There are so many gifted children around the world it’s uplifting refreshing inspiring and encouraging too. This in spite of all the evil ugly violent news of human beings full of hate and ignorance behaving more like animals than humans. I have to stop watching the general news on TV and focus more on surfing the web for the good news.
Take a few moments to relax and enjoy!
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. From the stones of the destruction we will build plant basins to grow flowers. Said told IMEU. True to his word they are off to a good start. Here’s the video
