Regarding the Eternal Unavoidable Presence and Power of Virgo:

“The cosmic Breath of the Mother of the World is all-pervading. Verily, all is imbued with it. From infinitesimal grains of dust to immeasurable magnitudes, life moves and breathes by this Breath. How then not to cognize the power which moves the Universe! How not to ponder upon the essence of Being! Fathom the rhythm of cosmic energy and understand the rhythm of evolution. The essence of evolution is unalterable and is measured by the manifestation of Infinity.

You who fear the end, turn your face to the radiance of the Mother of the World and affirm yourself in the understanding of evolution. There is no limit to the sendings from the Mountains. There is no limit to the warranty of the far-off worlds. There is no limit to the natural treasures of the visible and invisible spheres.

You who fear the end, turn to all four directions and say, Let us realize Infinity! The summits and the recesses of Earth are your sources. Limitless are the currents of these sources. If people would only know how to gather the eternally flowing currents of Infinity, then verily the laboratory of life would be realized.

The Era of Fire is approaching. Find courage and wisdom to accept it. The symbol of the serpent seizing its tail represents the circle of the events of evolution. The spiral is applied to the path of ascent.

You who fear the end, affirm yourself in the power of the spiral of Light and of the Fire of Space. Let us say, Beautiful is the Breath of Cosmos!”

Dear Mr. President:

I was happy to hear about the impending meeting with the UN Security Council. A brief note at the end of a series of pending actions, I think it was the most important comment in the address.

You spent a lot of time speaking about “America’s” role as a separate nation in the world. There is no doubt that without that role, the planet would in a far worse mess than it is now. However, In spite of the billions of dollars and thousands of invested lives, the levels of insanity and hate are growing. The dooms day clock is still 5 minutes to midnight. I suspect that come the time change we will see that time grow shorter.

The path we travel, vis-à-vis, the ISIS insanity is a slippery slope. It very much looks like “some dumb stuff that does not work.” All of our efforts since the WW2 have been halfway measures. All have returned very much less than good results. The proposed measures with the exception of engaging the United Nations will be repeats of the previous halfwayness.

An article in today’s NYT: “American intelligence agencies have concluded that the group poses no immediate threat to the United States” The crucial point that seems to have totally escaped the “intelligence community” is that the days when wars were regional are over. There are no “regions” on this planet.

The Ebola epidemic,  (Sept. 9: WHO says the death toll jumped by almost 200 in a single day to at least 2,296 and is already likely to be higher.) is a world issue, all wars everywhere are world wars. We have the WHO to combat the medical issues. The only truly effective tool we have to combat the insanity of terrorism is the United Nations.

Doing it alone or even with the so called coalition will simply be another halfway measure. The United States is intact because it is a union of 50 states with Laws that pertain to all 50. This is the only path out of the ancient, no longer valid concept of National Sovereignty.

We need to find a way to return the UN to Its intended function. This will require real heartfelt Leadership. Intellect will not suffice. It is a matter of the intuition.

Lots of love

Dear Mr. President:

It is inconceivable that  7 billion humans can be held in perpetual fear and pain by the actions of a few madmen, in the fullest meaning of the word. I have the sense that you realize that the solution to this aberrant situation is to  first of all recognize that it is a world problem not a United States of America problem. I see that you are striving to unite other nations to confront the situation.

I think that it is time for us to involve not just the handful of other nations that you mentioned the other day, but the United Nations. The whole world is suffering behind the actions of a very small number of individuals. Few problems are national anymore, and this is clearly a world problem, and we need to involve the world in its solution.

The people of the world cannot tolerate this kind of insanity any longer. We, as a world people, must say ENOUGH and act as One.

Anything else will be a halfway measure. It may retard the slide down the slope to disaster, but will not, because it never has, stop it.

As it was pointed out in 1858, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.”   Then it was a national issue. Now it is a world issue. Involve the United Nations.

Rivers of blood were spilled to bring the UN into existence. It is the only tool we actually have that will work. Please, go there. Talk to the people of the world. It is our world.

Lots of love

Visions of Virgo

Virgo Revisited
Since my initial encounter with it, when I was eight or so, I have been very suspicious of the spin on the Genesis myth, re the 6 days and such, but especially the way the Adam and Eve bit was presented. It made me feel creepy and guilty. When I discovered, in my late twenties, that a day and night of Brahma was equal to 8,640,000,000 mortal years, I felt lots better.

However, the Adam and Eve spin really needs some clarification. So, just to offer a different view on the interpretation of the Genesis metaphor, here are a couple of things. The metaphor of breathing life into form is fine; however, the notion that the Divine Breath produced only a male and then had to take a rib from the male to make the female is simply ridiculous. Then claiming that Eve’s punishment for being conned by the Snake was to bear children! We wonder why Women have always been seen as less than.

The Breath lasted seven days and nights of Brahma. Plenty of time for a Cosmic Thinker to evolve self producing human forms, i.e., woman and man that could handle the Life Force.

Also, one should point out here that if the "snake-Eve scenario" actually happened, Eve took the apple, not because she was conned by an evil male snake, or because she was “just a weak female”, but because: A. She was a strong woman, born, as are all human beings with a Free Will, and had the courage to take a necessary step to birth or free Humanity from a pointless, dead end perfection, a so called garden of Eden where A Big Daddy called the shots, nobody knew anything, and life was a huge bore, and B. because Adam was busy doing guy stuff like naming animals and kicking back while eating grapes.

Also, who said the serpent of matter was evil? It makes more sense to me to think of this bit of the myth as an allusion to the coming of the Agni Agnishvattas, “the builders on the fifth or gaseous subplane of the cosmic physical, and—from the human standpoint—are the most profoundly important, for they are the builders of the body of consciousness per se. From the psychic standpoint of occult physiology, they have a close connection with the physical brain, the seat or empire of the Thinker….” A treatise On Cosmic Fire P.635

Sort of the opening round in phase Two of the Plan. This is more like evolution. The Garden of Eden was the “blissful ignorance” of pre-self-consciousness.(incidentally, with Tyrannosaurus Rex running all over the place it  was not that blissful either). Leaving it was absolutely necessary for the unfolding of the Plan. Eve’s courageous act actually got Humanity started on the Path of Return to the Father’s house.

Eve chose to take the apple. That is, Eve took action. It is the receptive, feminine aspect of the Will to Good that alone can manifest that Will.  She expressed her Free Will which was part of the package with which humans were equipped at the get go. Also, I think it would be wise to keep in mind that there are no Gardens of Eden or Endless Kickbacks. There is, however, the amazing and joyful journey into Cosmos which will always involve the next step and leaving the comfort of the known, or the “cemetery of the Spirit” behind.

Think of the sacrifice of giving birth. If the mother’s total focus was on the pain of the process rather than the effort of giving birth to the new, that emerging bundle of beauty and joy, one wonders how many children would be born.

Dear Mr. President.

I understand how you life is made up of facing a new crisis every hour or so, most of which are coming not from without, but from within our Nation. Thinking about this, I finally understood why you were elected against all odds. It was your time, and you were available and able. You know, of course that the energy that is behind you has and will sustain you through the present storms of fanaticism that are assaulting us on all fronts.

So, having said that, I am asking you to take a few minutes of your time to put the squash on a group of greedy little Babbitts, another form of fanaticism,  who are intent on desecrating  the Grand Canyon by turning it into a shopping mall for the unconscious.

I know that  you know what the Grand Canyon is and what it means to this Nation. An article in today’s NY Times  a cathedral under siege by Kevin Fedarko has all the details of this greedy materialistic assault on, well, a national treasure.
Lots of love

Dear Mr. President

Dear Mr. President:

You do not have to respond to this note because it was just a dream I had, but I thought you might find it interesting.

So, I was for some inexplicable reason sitting with you in the Oval Office when your phone rang and your secretary informed you that Mr. Putin was on the line. You said O.K. put him through. And then you said Hey Vladimir, what’s up?

 He was on speaker and said, “Apparently you have not heard about the insanity concerned with the downing of the passenger plane over  resistance controlled turf in the Ukraine.

You said, “Yeah, I was just getting an update on that.

Vladimir said. “Well, I want  you to know that I had no idea that this technology had been given to those people. I have been busting my balls trying to dial them back, ( my dreams translate according to the intent of the thought not the actual language the speaker might have used.) but some nut case in my operation apparently shipped a lot of this high-tech stuff to them without me of my immediate staff knowing about It.

You replied, “God, Vladimir, I know what you’re talking about. I have numerous problems in the same category. I have people with the Chaney/ Wolfowitz virus running around generating constant problems in  this category.

I see this as a shared problem. We both have these nut cases doing stuff off the official grid and generating lots of chaos. This airliner thing is over the top. I could not imagine that you or any of  your immediate staff would have authorized this.

We have to work together to figure out how to get these viruses out of our systems, or at least minimize the damage they can do. I have an entire congress of them to deal with.

Anyway, I am going to have to say some stuff to the press in a few hours, but I know that we are working together. Why did you want to be the President, anyway?"

Vladimir said. I appreciate your understanding, and I want you to know that I too am doing whatever I can to keep us from blowing the whole place up. I will let you know why I wanted to be President when I figure it out.

Thanks again. I know that you have to do what you have to do.


Good By.

Dear Mr. President:
The children who are coming into our country are seeking asylum in the same way that any person from another country who is fleeing persecution, rape, starvation, death flees from those specters. They are refugees rather than migrants, I think that we of all nations should understand this and treat them accordingly.

I was disturbed by the heartlessness of the article I read in the New York Times this morning. The article said that you were "lifting the lamp besides the golden door",  requesting some $4,000,000,000.00 from Congress to help deal with the huddled masses of children yearning to breathe free who are seeking asylum in The Land Of The Free And The Home Of The Brave.

Way to go! I thought.

Then I saw that over half of the $4,000,000,000.00 was going to "beef up" our security, and to protect our "Way Of Life" from these children. We need to get more border patrol agents, judges, aerial surveillance, and new detention facilities. And this of course means lots and lots of construction contracts, and hardware orders of all kinds and shapes, from mallets for the Judges to "aerial surveillance drones", uniforms, Humvees, and machine guns for the "border patrol."

So we can see where that 2+ billion is going.

But the most heartless thing was that all of these billions are being spent so we can be sure we are protecting due process as we "remove these migrants more efficiently."

Well, not one of better democratic gestures. However, I think that the children are really refuges seeking asylum rather than migrants. And I do hope that some group somewhere launches a lawsuit to pursue that. I think it is a no brainer.

I Know that this one gave you a super heartache as well as a the usual headache that goes with the toughest job on the planet..
