Some times folks, I truly do not like blogging.
I just wrote, on a roll, for an hour, every new awareness in the last week -- guess what a simple mistake of hitting the the control key disappeared my "masterwork" of the week.
I am going to take a rest now!
So my new awarenessess "column" will just have to wait.
And what's more, I NEEDED to post pictures on that blog entry. And my blog "will not support graphics or pictures" . why? I do not know.

No. 31 hexagram shows up ...
Success. It is advantageous to persevere. The strong subordinates itself to the needs of the weak. The two energies resonate together and encourage each other, stopping to delight in words. The masculine yields to the feminine, persevering to understand the feminine. When heaven and earth stir each other up, the myriad beings evolve and give birth; when the sagely person stirs up the hearts of the people, the world attains peace and justice. Through contemplating the stirrings of one's own heart and the passions of heaven and earth and all the myriad beings, it is possible to see clearly. One who follows the Way makes peace with people by virtue of emptiness.
“The men of the present age, if they occupy high office and are honored with titles, all think only of how serious a matter it would be to lose them. Eyes fixed on profit, they make light of the risk to their lives. Are they not deluded indeed?”-- Zhuangzi (Burton Watson)

New Orleans - One Year Later
by Bernard Grover
Exclusive to www.UrbanSurvival.com
This reporter spent the week in New Orleans shooting a documentary for Microsoft, following up on various grants the company gave to help rebuild the infrastructure and the citizenry. This article is the result of what was learned post-Katrina on this field trip.
New Orleans is a superficial construct of its former self. About the only industry in town is reconstruction, which is paid for by tourism and the various grants and tax dollars. The tourism is not nearly what it was, though. Many bars close around midnight (Louisiana has no closing time for bars) and restaurants struggle to fill window seats to appear full. The Quarter was relatively unscathed by the devastation, but the crowds are minimal and the area is virtually deserted by midnight.
Nearly every intersection is dense with signs advertising construction jobs or various remediation services. One enterprising soul must have spent a small fortune on plywood and green spray paint, as his signs offering "discount tree trimming" are ubiquitous.
Much of the non-tourist industry is still closed. The Blue Plate mayonaise plant is dark and the boat yards are hardly utilized. Rush hour is primarily composed of folks coming from or going back to Baton Rouge and environs each day. It seems a good portion of the workforce is non-indigenous.
Ninth Ward is a ghost town. Though some lots have been cleared, for the most part, it remains untouched since last August. The devastation there truly brings home the magnitude of destruction. The houses are gutted and many are further destroyed by fire. All are unoccupied. The streets are littered with flotsam and jetsam and the grass is already growing over the asphalt. Though the locals joke that it doesn't look much worse than before the flood, it is a sort of gallows humor betraying a dark resignation.
In a more upscale neighborhood off of N. Claibourne, the scene is quite different. Though many of the houses took up to 8 feet of water, construction crews are busy stripping and rebuilding. Here and there, water lines can be seen graphically demonstrating the depth of the flooding. One two-story house still bore the mark evenly splitting the second story from the first.Even in this neighborhood, though, nothing is perfect. One woman, Pat, a skilled professional, had flood insurance, over $1 million in the bank and a number of resources that poorer folk don't. Yet, a year later she is still fighting to get her insurance to pay. Their initial offer for a two-story brick, with a pre-flood market value over $200,000, was $39,000. They are up to $94,000 right now, and friends are advising her to take it. Her house remains unlivable and she is living out of a FEMA trailer in the front yard, as a great number of families are currently doing. In fact, the trailers are everywhere in this neighborhood.
Anecdotal reports from St. Bernard parish say that the area south of New Orleans is virtually wiped off the map. The various small towns from Cameron eastward are totally destroyed. There is no rebuilding because there is nothing to rebuild. It will take a complete ground-up effort to make the areas livable again, if they ever are.
For the most part, New Orleanians are resigned to the fact that it may be 20 years or more for the region to recover completely. Some doubt that it will ever be the same, while others are hoping and working to make sure it never will be.
Several non-profits and NGOs are using their efforts to correct the past and make the future quite different. They are taking advantage of the situation to rebuild New Orleans as a showcase city of the 21st century. They are seeking to improve not only the physical infrastructure, but to correct centuries of intractable social and racial inequities in education and access. They are finding sympathetic ears with the governor and mayor, however, when priorities are simply to plug the dike (literally, in some cases), it is difficult to get action on more amorphous problems like social inequities.
One thing seems certain: New Orleans has changed forever. Whether it is for the better or worse will only be proven in time. One other thing is certain, as well. If the city receives another blow even a fraction of Katrina, there may be no resuscitation. The current recovery is at a very fragile stage and many of the rebuilding efforts are based on a relatively quick remediation. However, should the city be hit again, sympathy and largesse may be extremely rare commodities in the Crescent City. And that assumes that there will be anything to rebuild after another blow.
Grover's report is echoed by the East Texans I've spoken with locally. A a lumber yard on Thursday I heard that "There was some fellas that had a skid loader and a dump truck - and they was doing over a thousand dollars a day," reported one local. "But, as soon as the debris was picked up, there wasn't much happening because the insurance money had dried up to almost nuthin'," chimed in another lumber yard customer. "It's still like half blue tarps down there now."
So much for the aftermath of the web bot's "city slips into the mud" forecast, one year on.
A Refutation of the Official "Collapse" Theory"
The explanations of the collapse that have been given by the 9/11 Commission Report and NIST are not physically possible. "
Now this is absolutely inrefutable evidence!!
And to see the power point presentations that were offered at the Chicago 9/11 conference (and I avidly read Professor Jone's entire 104 slide presentation) go to:
Truly a compelling and straight forward telling are MacElveen's strengths.
I particularly recommend a a viewing of WHY WE FIGHT. It's a about an hour and half of TRUTH TELLING .. Link is in the copy below.
There's only one successful
VHeadline.com commentarist Mary MacElveen writes:
After yesterday's terrorist plot was foiled by MI5 and Scotland Yard thru good ole fashioned police work, which revealed that fluids could be brought on planes scheduled to fly to the United States and then blow them up, I've been trying to think of how I felt.
At several points yesterday, I just shook my head, shrugged my shoulders and thought "Hey, they are up to it again."
Who are the they I refer to? Bush and company!
I also wondered if my fellow Americans would go running back to Bush almost saying, please save me. Oh please!
Plus ... Bush is on vacation (again!) and things tend to happen that put our country on alert when he goes on vacation. But, not to condemn Bush for taking yet another vacation, Blair is also on one ... to the Caribbean. In fact a news reporter for BBC Channel 4 news even commented on the fact and was quite miffed, so to speak. He even stated that "If the Prime Minister knew, in general terms, of the nature of this threat, he wouldn't have gone on holiday."
Again, as I shrugged my shoulders, not able to formulate into words how I felt about how this terror plot that was foiled, a VHeadline.com reader (who is often one of my biggest detractors!) emailed me: "Hey Mary ... So what did you think about the terrorist plot that was stopped yesterday? I'm sure somebody on the Chavez side will proclaim that it was a CIA hoax or something. I was just curious what you thought."
First of all, I was not even thinking of what President Chavez thought yesterday since any attack would have happened to my fellow Americans. They, not President Chavez were my main concern. The pulse of Americans, as we draw closer to the fifth anniversary of 9/11 were in my mind as well.
What was also on my mind were the mid-term elections coming up and where the editor of another e-publication asked me if they would be "show elections!" You know, just going through the motions.... I wonder if this will have folks running back to the Republicans saying "Okay, you get to stay in charge" Wake up, people.
So, here was my response to the reader: "I have my own independent thoughts that have nothing to do with President Chavez. But, I will tell you that I find it circumspect that Lieberman ... a pro-war Democrat (?) ... lost to an anti-war Democrat in Lamont. That primary alone told this government that folks wanted to move ahead and take this administration to task. That primary emboldened all that this is the most incompetent administration to date.
Hey, even Lou Dobbs has spoken out about its incompetence as he just did concerning the response by NORAD leading up to the attacks.
Bush fears that we are all forgetting the war on terror ... which in my opinion can never be won since there will always be those that hate us.
Hey, even Ned Lamont stated, in his acceptance speech, that we have to start treating the world with “respect” ... and for a long time we have not.
Right now, the Middle East is bogged down in so many wars and people have seen the White House’s inaction to stop it. Well, now all of a sudden, a threat was foiled, almost begging the American people to come back to Bush.
Will Americans cower once more and stand behind Bush ... and if they truly believe in fighting this war on terror, why aren’t our young men and women signing up in droves at their local recruitment offices?
Congressman Charles Rangel once called for the draft to come back and, while, originally, I raked him over the coals, I rethought my position and now hold that it should come back so that all Americans can share the burden.
Let's see if Americans are truly for these wars on terror.
Independent of Chavez, I just do not trust the Bush administration ... and have not since day one that it came into power.
I really want readers to watch all three of these videos: “The Power of Nightmares” You will see that these videos are not on any conspiracy theorist page... Then see what the war on terror is truly all about ... feeding the military industrial complex and again, please watch the video called "Why we fight."
One more thing ... as a result of my op-ed pieces on VHeadline.com, one group that tends to believe what I say, and are my biggest supporters, is the patriot movement which includes former military personnel. One former Marine I have spoken with time and time again, has given me tips on how to survive should civil war break out in this country, USA."
But, to get back to the seriousness of this threat ... have any of you hit a hornet's nest?
Well did they retreat? No, hornets will come after you, and rightfully so.
At the present time, we're taking a battle right to the doorsteps of the Arab world. Are they just supposed to cower, raise the white flag and say "We give up"? We are killing their fellow citizens in the "Bush War in Iraq" and funding the Israelis in their attacks on the Lebanese and Palestinians.
If you think that all Jewish people are for this Israeli offensive, on "Jews Against Zionism --The Hijacking of Judaism by Zionists" you will see the Israeli police beating Rabbis. You will also see devout Jews against this offensive.
Why isn't anyone listening to them?
No, we would rather listen to the right-wing religious fanatics in this United States of America calling for the end times. Forgive them God, for they know not what they do. They think that YOU want Bush to wage war, but how wrong they are!
If you think we are going to win any war on terror it is a fallacy!
Israel receives weapons from the US, so why shouldn’t Iran or Syria give weapons to Hezbollah?! In the first paragraph: "America, allied with Israel, is on a mission to gain control over the world. America is waiting for the day when Cuba will be theirs. Fidel Castro the leader of Cuba has stepped down and left his successor, Raul Castro, in charge due to a medical sickness. Even though the Soviet Union no longer exists, Cuba still has a powerful ally, Venezuela. Venezuela is also a producer of oil along with Middle Eastern countries."
I find it interesting that this writer mentions Venezuela ... not because President Chavez has severed ties with Israel, but for the sheer fact that it is an oil producing nation. Shades of Iraq in the future? You be the judge.
Now, read on: "Hezbollah is considered a terrorist group by the Americans and the Israelis. But if you stand on the other side ... Lebanon, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Palestine and others consider America and its best friend Israel terrorists. So who is the real terrorist?"
As you will see, the Arab world sees us as threat as we see them.
Quite frankly, I wish we had a competent administration in Washington, D.C. that was better able to get their hands on this situation so that there is no further blood loss on either side.
Should you wish to read how many Arabs were killed by the Bush administration, Why George W. Bush is The World's Leading Terrorist written by TVNewsLies.org, is one that everyone should sit down and read. We have killed off more Arabs than Americans that were killed on 9/11.
Is the Arab world just supposed to take this on the chin?
They are as angry as hornets ... and again ... this is just another blow-back to our foolish thought that we own this world ... this is the 'respect' issue that Ned Lamont spoke of.
Please pay close attention when the writer states "George W. Bush, in his unprovoked attack against the sovereign nation of Iraq, openly violated the UN Charter, to which the US is a signatory. The Charter's core principles contained in Article 2(4) and Article 51 prohibit one nation from attacking another except in self-defense or with the authority of the UN. In effect, George Bush launched an unlawful use of force against persons and property."
Wouldn't you call that terrorism?
He (Bush) broke the law and yet no one is holding his feet to the fire. I find that to be unconscionable, my fellow Americans.
To further anger the Arab world yesterday, Bush called those that would attack us "Islamic fascists." He also made mention that "make no mistake that we are at war" ... then if we are truly at war, why not reinstall the draft and let all Americans share the burden? No, we have military personnel serving extended tours of duty through the "stop-loss" program.
Is that really just to have only some shoulder this responsibility than all?
To those of you that support Bush and his policies, come on, go down to your nearest recruitment office and sign up to serve. Put your money where your mouth is. Nascar will be there when and if you come back and so will 'American Idol.'
There are no conspiracy theories out there as to why this is happening ... it is all in the news and not just the mainstream media, but in the alternative media. We in the alternative media write of provable facts often left out by the mainstream media and, to my dismay and anger, the American people often sit clueless as to why the Arab world is angry with us.
This is what incompetence by your federal government has gotten you.
This is why we have a bull's-eye on our backs.
To the Arab world: You want this to stop ... then tell the American people to somehow impeach Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice, et al.
That is the only successful outcome that I can think of...

Hazel's update 08/11/06
Good Morning from Grand River.
It's been a few days since Justice Marshall made his ruling that the contempt of court orders must be upheld, and that negotiations were to stop until the people and the barricades have been removed from the site.
Obviously that created quite a stir within the Six Nations as well as within the town of Caledonia.
Tuesday night became a night of venting when residents of aledonia came down and gathered within about 40' of the main entrance of the reclamation site. The people had gathered at the fire earlier in the evening and concensus had been reached that until such time as the Crown's representatives had officially stated that the talks were off, that we were going to continue toward the August 23rd date that had previously been set aside for talks to continue. It should be noted also, that all of the side table meetings that had been scheduled at this point were cancelled until further notice.
The people felt that for security and safety reasons, that the main entrance into the site should somehow be blocked or at least restricted in order to protect the people.
The Hydro tower that had been removed on July 11th was once again brought into the front entrance, and we believe that the caledonia people who were expecting roads to be blocked again, thought this action was an indication of that.
It was at that point that they came rushing toward the site. The OPP had to form their human line again between the Caledonia mob, and the six nations people. There was alot of racial comments being tossed around, and stones being thrown toward six nations, and at one point, a fire hydrant hose had been turned toward the caledonia mob to cool things down. A unity flag was taken down by a young woman from Caledonia and when the OPP tried to stop her, she slapped the OPP officer and was taken into custody.
We have no confirmation if any charges were laid, but we were however informed that the individual who sprayed the people with the hydrant hose would be being charged. Go figure eh!
I think for the most part, that is what is most frustrating. We've had over 50 charges laid against our people to date. While Caledonia people are crying that nothing is being done about the so called terrorism, how many of the Caledonia people have been charged with the racial violence and terroristic acts of hatred that have been displayed toward six nations and have been caught on tape by newscamer as as well as witenessed by the opp, have resulted in charges against those individuals.
Our count is zero!
By 1:30 a.m. things had quieted down and prettywell all of the caledonia people had gone home. Since then, it has been relatively quiet again, and the people on the site have stepped up the security to ensure that none of our neighbouring residents will be able to incite the violence that they have continually been trying to do.
The Caledonia Citizens Alliance (CCA) had previously indicated that their rallies were going to commence again because if the opp and the government wasn't going to remove us from the site, then they would. It is really sad that no matter how often we try to remind caledonia and the rest of the world that this is NOT a Six Nations vs. Caledonia problem but in FACT is a matter between Six Nations and the Crown; a small group of cca have continually tried to fan the flames of racism, in order to create a situation of violence that in their minds, will justify an action by the opp or other forces to come in and remove us from the site.
So far, greater minds of PEACE have prevailed and while small incidents have been created, our security and the people have been able to prevent the anticipated escalation of violence.
On Wednesday, the Attorney General's Office of Ontario announced that it would be appealing Justice Marshalls decision, and the federal and provincial representatives of the crown have supported this action so that the peaceful negotiations can continue. The tentative date for this as I said, is August 23rd and on that date, the crowns representatives and our representatives are to have all of their documentation available and ready to begin.
Lets get the proof on the table!
We know what we have, now show us what you've got.
Other than that, not a whole lot going on. The Youth Camp is going to begin next week for a 15 day period at which time there will be teachingson areas such as i) wampum identification and history, ii) storytelling from the Creation Story and Great Law iii) History: where we came from & migration to Grand River iv) knowing your clan and roles and responsibilites v) self disciplinetechniques vi) men's roles vii) women's roles viii) human and legal rights as well as Peace Power and Righteousness. We will also be working within the arts of lacrosse, dingball, rattle and drum making, soapstone carving, painting and drawing, beading, making mocassins and sewing. All of these areas were the areas in which the youth and shown an interest in.
Funding the program is being supported by the elected band council.
For today, that is about it as far as an update. We just wanted to ensure the many many supporters that we have out there, that our position has not changed, and we are maintaining our peaceful presence on the land.
If there are any further developments with respect to the appeal, or on the land, I will get it out to you as soon as I can.
Light and Love,
Spiritualizing The Planet
From the Daily OM
We are one with the cosmos whether we realize it or not.
Realizing it, though, quickens our spiritual energy and allows us access to higher realms. In those higher realms lies the awareness that we are more than just finite physical beings living one life in one place at one point in time.
Connecting with this awareness is to awaken to the truth and take a step forward, and upward, on our soul's journey. This upward movement is known as ascension because the more we remember who we are and embody that truth, the higher our energy vibrates; we ascend up the scale from the gross physical plane to the subtle spiritual plane.
As we ascend, we gain consciousness of the more subtle aspects of our being, with the ultimate outcome being a complete identification with the light body, an experience of unification with the cosmos.
As you look around you, you will see that many people are not even interested in these ideas. Others are open and paying attention. Still others have devoted their lives to deepening their understanding of the truth. All these people are on the path of ascension, but they will ascend at different rates.
Each soul chooses its own path.
The more devoted a person is to remembering and being guided by spirit, the more quickly the soul will ascend. These people are at the forefront of an important process of raising the energetic vibration of the whole planet.
The earth, made of the same energy we are, is undergoing this shift along with us. This evolutionary process, while seemingly chaotic at times, is as natural as the process that unfolds a flower from a seed and we are all part of it.
It shouldn't be forgotten that the earth too is on her own ascension path as she is sentient. The best way to support this process in yourself and in the world is simply to relax and be open to its unfolding. Listen to your inner guidance, and let it guide you to the path that brings your heart the most joy.
That's my favorite kind of news, too.
What is happening below is truly rEVOLUTIONary, imho.
Finally -- some focus in a distrurbingly "all over the place" spiritual activism.
I think he is one awesome man.
Date: Fri, 11 Aug 2006 20:00:00 -0400 (EDT)
From: Rabbi Michael Lerner RabbiLerner@tikkun.org
Subject: You did it! The ads appeared, cease fire imminent, but core issues
unsolved--so we must continue.
Dear Virginia, I just want to let you know how very much I appreciate the support you gave to our ad calling for an end to the violence in the Middle East.
Because of the generosity of some 3,500 people we were able to publish the full page ad in the New York Times on July 31 and in the Los Angeles Times on August 6th. Moreover, your willingness to support the ad made it possible for that message to be communicated to millions of other people as we got access to a few very good spots (Larry King Live, other CNN and Fox shows, articles in many newspapers, etc.).
We always took a balanced view, never forgetting the terrible human costs of Hezbollah’s shelling of Israeli civilians nor the even higher costs in lives lost by Israel’s assault on Lebanon (and the continued attacks on Palestinians which was obscured by the media in the past few weeks but actually escalated to the point that Israel’s IDF killed over 100 Palestinians out of site of media coverage).
The hopeful sounds about a cease fire, however, has not stopped the fighting which is actually intensifying at this very moment. I hope that will end soon.
Yet the central message of our ad remains as pressing today as when we published it this past week: the need to move beyond “cease fire” to use this bloody moment to focus the world’s attention on getting a final settlement agreement between Israel and Palestine, an agreement that must be based on security for both and justice for both.
The call for an international conference which might, if necessary, impose on all sides a final settlement agreement that was fair to all sides is still needed. So we’d like your help in making it possible for us to reprint most of the message in the full page ad. And we’d like your help in sending this request to everyone on your email lists—so that they too might sign on and also might consider donating. As I’m sure you saw, you can sign the ad without donating to it, or donate without signing it. Our plan is to wait till the beginning of September to publish an updated version of the ad, assuming we can raise money to do so.
So that gives you plenty of time to convince your friends to go to our website www.tikkun.org/PeaceAd and look over our new version (which should be ready in about a week’s time).
One of the typical media distortions was to argue that the position taken by this ad was “marginal” and that most Americans and most Jews were lining up behind the Olmert government’s decision to bomb Lebanon (which preceded the Hezbollah shelling of Israeli towns), and the continuation of the war (hence, against our call for a cease fire). But polls taken in Israel this week reveal a very different story, with many Israelis saying the very same things we are saying in this ad (cease fire now, negotiate, and deal with the whole panoply of issues, not just getting quiet for Israel on the Lebanese border). Our perspective has now been joined by Peace Now, the Meretz Party, and many others.
Yet our voice is still very important in pushing for an international conference and for using this moment to nail down a final settlement agreement. So I hope that you yourself will consider donating a second time to help get this message out, beyond whatever you do to to send this appeal to people to whom you have access.
Again, on behalf of the entire Tikkun Community, the Network of Spiritual Progressives, the Shalom Center, the Alliance for a New Humanity, Jewish Voices for Peace, and many other groups who endorsed this effort, and on behalf of the 3,500 other people who signed this in the hopes that you and your friends would also sign and donate, I want to thank you for helping this effort.

To God, I hope you don't mind
"Look at Us" By John trudell
I see your techno logical society devour you before your very eyes
I hear your anguished cries exalting greed through progress
while you seek material advances
the sound of flowers dying carry messages through the wind
trying to tell you about balance and your safety
But your minds are chained to your machines and
the strings dangling from your puppeteers hands turning you, t
wisting you into forms and confusions beyond your control
Your mind for a job your mind for a TV.
your mind for a hair dryer
your mind for consumption with your atom bombs
your material bombs your drug bombs your racial bombs
your class bombs your sexist bombs your ageist bombs
Devastating your natural shelters making you homeless on earth
chasing you into illusions fooling you,
making you pretend you can run away from the
ravishing of your spirit
While the sound of flowers dying carry messages through the wind
trying to tell you about balance and your safety.
Trying to isolate us in a dimension called loneliness
leading usinto the trap believe in their power but not in ourselves piling us
with guilt always taking the blame greed chasing out the balance
trying to isolate us in a dimension called loneliness economic
deities seizing power through illusions created armies are justified
class systems are democracy
god listens to warmongers prayers
tyranny is here divide and conquer
trying to isolate us in a dimension called loneliness
greed a parent insecurity the happiness companion
genocide conceived in sophistication techno logic material civilization
a rationalization replacing a way to live trying to isolate us
in a dimension called loneliness.
To God, I hope you don't mind but we would like to talk to you.
There are some things we need to straighten out. It's about these
Christians. They claim to be from your nation but man you should
see the things they do, all the time blaming it on you.
Raping the earth, Lying,
Taking more than they need in all the forms of the greed's.
They say it is God's will. I don't mean to be
disrespectful, but you know how it is,
my people have their own ways.
We never even heard of you until not long ago. Your
representative spoke magnificent things of you, which we were
willing to believe. But from the way they acted we know you
and we were being deceived.
It is time for you to decide what life is worth.
We already remember, but maybe you forgot.
Look at us, we are of Earth and Water
Look at them, it is the same Look at us, we are suffering all these years
Look at them, they are connected. Look at us, we are in pain
Look at them, surprised at our anger
Look at us, we are struggling to survive
Look at them, expecting sorrow be benign
Look at us, we were the ones called pagan
Look at them, on their arrival
Look at us, we are called subversive
Look at them, descending from name callers
Look at us, we wept sadly in the long dark
Look at them, hiding in tech no logic light
Look at us, we buried the generations
Look at them, inventing the body count
Look at us, we are older than America
Look at them, chasing a fountain of youth
Look at us, we are embracing Earth
Look at them, clutching today
Look at us, we are living in the generations
Look at them, existing in jobs and debts
Look at us, we have escaped many times
Look at them, they cannot remember
Look at us, we are healing
Look at them, their medicine is patented
Look at us, we are trying
Look at them, what are they doing
Look at us, we are children of Earth
Look at them, who are they?

CHECK THIS OUT
As the awful civilian death toll rises above 1000 in Lebanon and Israel, people around the world are seeking a place to voice their frustration and concern.
Over the last 4 days, 200,000 people from 148 countries have signed the ceasefire petition.
At this rate, we could soon be the largest global online petition in history.
The pressure is working. The global outcry over this crisis has pushed the Ambassadors to the UN Security Council to work around the clock to achieve an immediate ceasefire.
The latest word is that the Council may be close to a final vote today or tomorrow, but we've been this close before and negotiations have fallen apart.
We need more pressure now to close the deal.
Please forward this email on, spread the word to your friends, family and colleagues, post a link on your blog, bring up the campaign in discussions, and urgently encourage people around you to join this global wave of protest by signing up at the link below:

Its getting down to the wire now, these punks are trying to figure out how to keep control of the govt here with elections, i have a feeling we will see plenty of "terror" alerts in the next 3 months
...maybe more than that, lets hope not,
the consensus of the people I talk to is that people are just waiting now,
getting ready for any "surprises" that may occur.
Peace and Love to every being on this planet
Living in so-called democratic countries most of us . and that includes you, too, (although your head of state in Denmark is developing a bit of a backbone, or least a healthy survival instinct) .. we really fail to understand just how the alliance military is viewed by the rest of the world unless we WORK at understanding.
The military industrial complex has TAKEN over I doesn't spend billions protecting itself. Trillions are spent, but to pay for these weapons, taxpayers' money is used. The RICH GET TAX BREAKS. We are protecting very conservate interests with our dimes and precisely what good has that wrought now or during the cold war ...?
The world is literally on the brink of nuclear was on a daily basis these past few weeks.. NO JOKE, it could happen at ANY time. Meanwhile, nuclear proliferation and testing is ESCALATING, in the arena are India, the US (now about to explode in Hawaii, but not Nevada which is merely on hold, not stopped), North Korea, Iran, Pakistan, ad naseum.
9/1 WAS shocking at it was presumed with all these weapons and defense systems PLUS heavy surveillance of individuals going on, who believed that somone might really attack NYC and Pentagon!! The unthinkable HAPPENED. Of course we have more evident it was a set up now, but still .. It was a shock to NORTH AMERICANs and a surprise to the rest of the world.
What I am trying to suggest here is that the effect of living in strange times where the unthinkable happens is taking its TOLL.
Many more people are dieing daily in IRAQ, but deaths in the HOLY LAND get more coverage. we seem to be being set for a new crusade!
The earth is unstable and warning systems are NOT in place (since we've lost contact with paying attention to animals, humans are pretty hopeless to protect themselves in these events) All you say is TRUE.
The conclusion, to my mind, though must be to appeal to all sides to get with the PROGRAM that all is lost if this age of CONFLICT is not ended. We are all tolerating the intolerable .. genocide is an extremely nasty thing no matter who does it or (?)why .. It is doing the totally unacceptable ..
In some ways these katusha rockets and street bombs are symbols of spiritual fear!! We can only stop all this when the planet becomes SAFE for everyone.
A ceasefire right now would be a good step in the right direction.
The manipulation by the Powers that be that make money on armaments and strident war mongering. Notice how no ever suggests going after arms DEALERS ...?
Every single one of this terrorists plots has proved to be a DUD. Who thinks them up? It has been suggested that MOSAD sets them up, so that they can get their allies to fight their battles for them. Interesting that gas goes up and up in price, yet taxpayers are sending ca$h for jet fuel for Isreali planes. Who voted for that ..?
What people are going to be driven to do when the New World Order gets more firmly entrenched is anybody's guess .. however, it seems unlikely that ANY current government (save Lebanon which will probably be out soon!) would work along side people determined to have have self determination in this age of religious and resource wars.
The current Lebanonese war is about WATER so far .. there are more water wars to come if the human race cannot find a way to work together. and lots more fear bombs going off ..
It is strange that there is a terror plot when we see what happen in Lebanon, what happens there is accepted by the government in the western world.
If we count the numbers of dead people because of so called terror and compare them to the numbers of dead in natural disasters, we can see that the numbers is 100 times or more higher here.
Yes who can we trust. remember we can make a bomb out of anything and every one can do that if they will.
LOve and light to all,

The 1st thought I had when I heard was that it's a distraction - from Israel's Nazism, from up-coming elections in the U.S. of A., Iran's "wicked" atomic energy programme - from whatever the PTB have on their agenda that they wish to accomplish as "invisibly" as they can.
It's also a huge dose of fear from which the unseen can feed. For info. about the unseen, read Laura Knight-Jadczyk's writings at www.cassiopaea.org.
I simply don't believe that the terror attack on planes is for real - but DO believe that MI5, CIA & other alphabet soup barstewards are HAPPY to make it happen if it serves THE CAUSE.
Those arrested will, IMO, just be more patsies - as was Lee Harvey Oswald, Timothy J McVeigh & too many others to name.
The obscenity of the reality of 3D is a challenge I'd be happy to dispense with. The tragedy [to me] is that this is a surpassingly beautiful planet that all REAL human beings should be able to treasure & enjoy.

Government enforcers and frightened slaves are all hot and bothered about the latest supposed terror plot targeting UK flights inbound to the US. How long before the whole saga turns out to be hoaxed BS like EVERY SINGLE OTHER major terror alert there has been?

EMERGING FROM THE DEEP ...
.... EMERGING FROM THE SLEEP ...
(Please, go to the site to see the pictures; I cannot post them)
It may seem as if the world is falling apart with all the wars and the gathering extremes of weather, but there is another perspective from which all this can be seen.
When I first began to consciously 'wake up' amid some extraordinary experiences in 1990-91, a major theme of my life was of a coming transformation of human perception. There didn't appear to be much sign of that at the time, but as I traveled and met people we would call 'psychics' I was told on many occasions that I was destined to play a role in the coming global awakening when humanity, or large swathes of it, would break free of the amnesia that has held it in servitude.
I put all this aside to simmer while I got on with my life because if it was true the evidence would eventually be there to support such ideas and beliefs. But deep down I just knew it was true, despite all the messages to the contrary from mainstream society.
The rising sun may be an Illuminati symbol, but it also captures what is happening to human consciousness today ...
Now, 16 years on, it is clear that the wake up call is being heard by vast numbers of people, most of whom would once have laughed at the very idea. The end of the inter-generational amnesia is in sight and therefore so is the 'world' it has allowed to manifest.
It may seem that we are sinking deeper in the mire of control, surveillance and manipulation, but that is being expressed in the 'out there' realm of the still-unwakened - the great majority for sure. One step back from that, however, there is a stirring in the hearts and consciousness of rapidly increasing numbers of people and the time is coming when that will explode in massive global change.
I remember when I was a national spokesman for the British Green Party how we could see through 1988 and early '89 that the public was beginning to see the insanity of treating the planet like a factory floor and garbage dump. The mainstream of politics and media saw nothing because they operate in a reality cocoon, a superficial world in which the mentally blind mix with the partially sighted.
Then, 'out of nowhere', the Green Party attracted by far the biggest vote in its UK history in the summer of 1989. But it wasn't 'out of nowhere', that was just the perception of the media observing from its cocoon. The change in public awareness of the environment had been building, ever more quickly, for the best part of two years and the election result was the natural outcome of this - not an 'out of nowhere' mystery.
It is the same with the much greater awakening I am highlighting here.
I have observed the change in my travels since 1990 as I have seen hearts open and awareness expand. From no interest in these subjects when I began, it is becoming a spiritual tsunami. So what is happening and why? That's what I want to talk about this week after some wonderful awakening experiences of my own in Sedona and Mount Shasta in the last few weeks.
Those who have studied the Mayan Calendar say that it charts cycles of energy and the 'evolution' of consciousness. The ancient Maya appear to have originated in the Yucatan in Mesoamerica about 2600 BC, and they reached their peak around 250 AD in what has now become southern Mexico, Guatemala, northern Belize and western Honduras. They studied astronomy and developed hieroglyphic writing, but they are best known today for their magnificent temple-pyramids and their measurement of 'time' and energy cycles in the 'Mayan Calendar'.
Many believe that the culmination of major energy cycles identified by the Maya will happen on December 21st 2012. Others, like Dr. Carl Johan Calleman, the author of books such as The Mayan Calendar and the Transformation of Consciousness, say this date is actually October 28th 2011. Still other estimates I have seen say February 10th 2011. Whatever it may be, it's soon, and it correlates with what I was told many times in 1990, and on numerous occasions since, that a spiritual awakening of fantastic proportions has arrived.
A representation of the Mayan Calendar
The Maya believed that the earth has been going through nine cycles, made up of 'days' and 'nights' (good times and challenging times) and that each cycle contained 20 times more 'creation' than the last. Calleman says that this does not mean that 'time' passes quicker with each cycle, it only appears to because more and more 'creation' - activity - is taking place.
When you look back over the last few centuries alone you can certainly see this pattern very clearly with the pace of change and activity accelerating at an ever faster pace. What would have been considered 'miracles' and impossibilities not so long ago are now the commonplace and we have seen nothing yet. Ian Xel Lungold, who has worked with Calleman on decoding the Maya information, has come to similar conclusions. He says:
'A very brief example; the beginning of the 5th [cycle] of Creation's pattern was 102,000 years ago. This is when our ancestors learned to speak. Advancements in technology took approx. 7,900 years each. The 6th [cycle] began in 3115 BC and this is when we learned to write. Changes in technology took place about every 396 years. The 7th [cycle] started 1755 AD. Here was the invention of the mail service, the printing press, newspapers and the beginning of the Industrial Revolution. Major tech advances were achieved every 19.7 years. The beginning of the 8th [cycle] was Jan 5th 1999. Now we have the Internet and instant communications world wide. The same amounts of technical advancements now occur every 360 days.'
The Mayan pyramid at Chitzen Itza in the Yucatan. They were designed to reflect the Mayan cycles
These are the Mayan cycles, according to researchers:
Cellular cycle - beginning 16.4 billion years ago, developed the consciousness of Action/Reaction.
Mammalian cycle - beginning 820 million years ago, developed the consciousness of Stimulus/Response.
Familial cycle - beginning 41 million years ago, developed the consciousness of Stimulus/Individual Response.
Tribal cycle - beginning 2 million years ago, developed the consciousness of Similarities/Differences.
Cultural cycle - beginning 102,000 years ago, developed the consciousness of Reason.
National cycle - beginning in the year 3115 B.C., developed the consciousness of Law.
Planetary cycle - beginning in the year 1755 A.D., developed the consciousness of Power.
Galactic cycle - beginning January 5, 1999, developing the consciousness of Ethics.
Universal cycle - beginning February 10, 2011 [or in that period of 2011/2012], will be developing the unlimited ability of Conscious Co-Creation.
For me, what we are looking at here is the Matrix computer program, the Time Loop as I call it.
I do not believe, as most Maya researchers seem to think, that these cycles chart the evolution of consciousness. Infinite Consciousness, Infinite Awareness, does not need to 'evolve' by experiencing the virtual reality game here on earth. I would suggest it is far more related to the potential of consciousness manifest itself in this realm and thus influence the program.
Nor, is it all pre-ordained. These cycles may provide a backdrop, a 'road map' as some call it, but the way we choose to go is up to us. We can be dominated by the program, pawns of it, or we can use consciousness to change it. We are now in an amazing period when the program and Infinite Consciousness are coming into sync, so sit down and strap in. What a ride it is going to be and extremely challenging. Indeed, it already is.
The Illuminati and their other-dimensional masters have long known that this awareness explosion was coming and they are now desperately trying block it with their control, suppression and, most notably, with their microchips. This is their main hope to scramble the body computer so it cannot flow with the change as the cycle reaches its climax and transforms life on earth. The chemtrail 'soup' being sprayed from the sky and the electromagnetic and chemical bombardment through food, drink, and technology are all part of this campaign of panic and desperation to stop the awakening.
Pollution is clearly not a good thing, but what we call global warming is overwhelmingly the result of the vibrational change now manifesting, something I have been pointing out for years. The earth is transforming as we are and as we see our outer experience change, so does the planet. The global-warming-is-caused-by pollution scenario is a cover story to hide what is really behind it - the very transformation the Illuminati and Co are trying to thwart.
They are, however, but a fly to an elephant when awakened consciousness imposes itself.
The Illuminati cannot stop the transformation, but they can make it much more painful and frightening for people by suppressing the knowledge of what is happening and by manipulating the population to stay in its amnesic state.
I was saying many years ago in my books that there were two main ways to react to the energy flows that are now cascading through this reality. Taking the analogy of a rushing river, we can enjoy the ride by relaxing and lying back on the air bed, at one with the flow. Or we can stand up in the water, refuse to budge and use more and more of our energy just to stand still. Even then, at some point, the waves will be so large and powerful we will be smacked from our feet and into the energetic white water ride.
Anyone who has awakened from the program and begun to beat to another drum will know what happens next. Their lives change, often 'fall apart', and they wonder why they are going through such challenges when they just want to 'be spiritual'. But what is happening is perfectly explainable and necessary.
'Life is a Roller Coaster, you just gotta ride it ...'
All the time we are projecting a vibrational field that reflects our current mental, emotional and spiritual state. This attracts, through what I call 'vibrational magnetism', other energy fields that reflect that energetic state. We call these energy fields people, places, jobs, relationships, experiences and so on.
As we awaken to another mental, emotional and spiritual awareness, so the energy matrix creating what we called our 'lives' begins to break down and change. This must, and clearly does, reflect itself in the 'outer' world of people, places, jobs, relationships, experiences. As the inner transforms, so the outer must follow because one is a mirror of the other.
We experience this as the life we knew 'breaking down', but what we are actually doing is breaking through to a new reality and therefore a new life experience. It seems unpleasant and scary at the time, but it's just the old matrix coming apart so the new one can form.
Something very similar is happening in the collective world now as we watch, often in horror, the breaking down of the old world. What awaits us on the other side, however, is a world that reflects the awakened understanding that Infinite Love Is The Only Truth - Everything Else Is Illusion.
We are witnessing the extremely painful collapse of the old matrix to make way for the birth of a new reality
We can resist this change and try to hold on to what we consider our 'security', which is often much better described as our 'familiarity'. People like to cling to what they consider to be familiar because they fear the unknown. This is understandable in the world that we perceive, but the transformation, the vibrational shift, is urging us to let go and flow.
If we do that, have the trust to let go of the wreckage and just flow with the change, the outcome in terms of fear and stress will be transformed.
The difference in those two choices, those two experiences, can be measured in the chasm between bliss and joy and the fear and terror that comes from looking the unknown in the eye.
To sync with the flow, we need to literally be out of our minds. The mind is the level of awareness that relates to the physical body and the program. Intuition - knowing - is the Sat-Nav that will guide us through this extraordinary time with love and joy because intuition and knowing are Infinite consciousness speaking through the heart.
Out of the head and into the heart. That is the way home and we are now in sight of the door. The challenge is to walk through it.
