5 Future Predictions For the Human Race

12 June 2016

This might be interesting for you. A little scary perhaps but it seems this is the reality of things to come. Many sic fi movies have been preparing us for this, and some of this is already in existence now. Keep an open mind, take it with a pinch of salt and a dash of humour. Our world today is so far away from what it was for our parents, so why would we think that the next generations will continue with life as it is for us today? Enjoy.

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.

Here you can read Philippa’s blog Genius – The Saviour

and here you can be inspired, see and hear Alma Deutscher in action

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.

 

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!

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.

 

WADJDA in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

The movie is an authentic Saudi Arabian, written and directed by a Saudi Arabian female, Haifaa al Mansour. It gives us a little peek into women’s lives in Saudi Arabia. I repeat only a little peek. If you are intrigued about this closed society where women are treated as second class citizens, who have to cover up in black, their faces hidden in public with no freedom rights, whose sole purpose is to please and do men’s bidding, then you’ll want to watch this. The dialogue is in Arabic but with English subtitles.
Its wonderful to see the spirit of this little girl, her motivation, determination, vision, desire, and I only wonder how long will it take to break her spirit! When she gets married off to an older man before she’s fifteen and then perhaps later even more, when he gets his second or third or fourth wife legally? They (I think you know who I mean by they) enjoy all the modern technology plus some because they can afford it but they have not yet evolved enough to understand that it is the male who determines the gender of the child and not the female, that woman is just as important as man in the scheme of life, that freedom is a universal law, that men who are evolved are able control their sex desires and do not have to attack a woman just because they see her face! (sorry I had to I just had to let it out)
And how dismal to see all those women walking around in black! ‘God’ which is Arabic for ‘Allah’ has nothing but abundance in the universe, just note all the colours of nature!
Do you see the bitterness, anger and despair in some of the teachers’ faces as they impose the impossible rules of their society on the younger girls?
More interesting even is to read about the director and how the movie was made
on wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wadjda Enjoy!

By the way I want to say thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart, to all who are following my blog, for all the encouraging comments, and those who share my blogs with their followers. I do enjoy reading all your comments so here’s an official thank you, and a huge warm hug to one and all.
May nothing but love and peace reign on earth! May there be an end to this chaos, madness and ignorance! If only intelligence were contagious, we would have heaven on earth!

Harcèlement de rue

Femmes de la rue, par Sofie Peters-
Young woman with hidden camera on the streets of Brussels.

This short video is really disturbing, for me anyway! I am at a loss for words. It’s about a young woman who moved to Brussels and her experience of day to day subjected to harassment and insults by men when she is walking innocently attending to her own business. As women usually do, she blames herself at first, ‘perhaps I’m too provocative’ ‘perhaps it’s the way I’m dressed’ she thinks, but no, she discovered that only she but all young women who walk alone on the street are subjected to the same primitive behaviour by fellow men in Brussels! We’re not in Saudi Arabia here nor in Egypt or Oman or Baghdad, but in Brussels in the heart of Europe, so tell me someone what is going on here. And why do Europeans stand for this? So this young woman walked with a hidden camera to video her experiences. It is shocking. The video is in French, so those who understand French will understand the ‘names’ she’s being called as men pass her by, and the looks she gets from men, you can see clearly, no language barrier here. I am from the Middle East myself and I ran away to escape this half a century ago. Now it’s arrived on the streets of Europe. And if nothing is done about this it’ll probably get much worse. Are there no men around with brains and intelligence left in this world or is the old saying proving to be true even in 2014 – ‘that men have their brains in their penis!’ and ‘women are here only to satisfy their sexual pleasures’ I can’t believe I am writing this here on my blog but I am so upset at this. And one can see clearly also on this video its Moslem men mostly who are attacking this girl. I’ve had my fill of being politically correct and this has nothing to do with being prejudiced, it has to do with facts. Fact is also that many western men share the same disrespect for women. As I understand as of September such insults from men are going to be fined in Brussels. And about time too I say. Bad behaviour is just not acceptable no matter who from. Human rights is for everyone and not only for one part of the population! Perhaps when these people who have no respect for women and others are fined or punished enough then they will think again. To make things worse I just heard about the two girls who were gang raped and hung somewhere in India! Are men ever going to evolve to be intelligent human beings? Are they ever going to evolved to learn to control their sexuality? Or is it their God given right that they can flaunt themselves whenever they feel aroused and force themselves on whomever they happen to fancy? Again I can’t believe that I’m actually writing this but something inside me is just boiling. I recall only too well when I was seventeen walking on al Rashid Street in the centre of what once was modern cosmopolitan Baghdad, happy with myself and the world, and a young man passing me by pinched my breast! I was in shock! It happened so fast he was long gone before I realised what had happened and my whole world came crashing down on me. There were people all around us, I was to ashamed to react in any way except to freeze! In that one second I was so mad so insulted I could have killed! OK, now it’s out! I’ve kept this to myself for half a century! I have never mentioned this to anyone ever before and this video just brought it all up again – this feeling of rage – at being abused for no reason at all other than being a pretty girl. I wrote a book about my two decades born and raised in Baghdad in the 40s and 50s. Once Upon a Time in Baghdad. I did not include this little secret in my book. Why? Because I’d forgotten it, or so I thought until I saw this video and suddenly wanted to throw up as it all came back to me. It just seems like some things never change. Somehow I think women have to take some of the blame because after all, men are raised by mothers, my question is – what are the mothers teaching their boys? I strongly believe it is up to us women, each one of us, to make the necessary changes in this world and to educate the boys who will soon be men.
Here’s the video

The Ross Sisters

Amazing 3 Ladies
This was in 1944!
During the first 50 seconds, they are singing, but next,
what they do, is amazing…

This you’ve got to see if you haven’t seen it before. This is the first time this video crosses my desk. Now what has this got to do with Conscious Evolution you might ask? Everything! After all controlling our physical body is one part of our evolution path and boy look at what these three pretty gals can do with theirs! This must have taken some training for some years! There’s team work, flexibility, fun, laughter, joy, entertainment, discipline, reliability, one pointed focus, precision, tenacity and more of same. All are attributes of an advanced soul. So watch and be amazed!

Switching Roles!

Here’s a video in French made by a young woman to make men understand how it feels to be a woman. It’s about men and women reversing roles! To show our earthly male companions how women feel when some men behave the despicable way they do.The person in the kindergarden all covered up is a man explaining its the law and God that requires him to cover up. Then on the street you see the girls behaving as some men do with women! In the police station not much help or sympathy that he’d been attacked and gang raped. The wife then blames him for being dressed the way he is insinuating it’s his fault and walks out on him. Very much true to real life for so many women.
