Pizza and Koch

February 24, 2011

Dioptase (Copper Cyclosilicate)

Dennis Kucinich provides his always-useful perspective on the regression of the USofA to the Third World…

Kucinich’s family was homeless while he was growing up, so he knows whereof he speaks.  The interviewer refers to some wise-guy from Buffalo calling the guvner of Wisconsin and pretended to be David Koch, one of the right-wing industrialists who fund the Tea Party.  The wise-guy recorded the call.  If you haven’t heard it yet, here’s Part 1…

and Part 2… .

And in case you missed the Pizza Story, here’s the national version…

and the international version… .

Miracles are hiding behind every blade of grass and every snowflake.

I Love Irony

February 23, 2011

Au“He who farts in church sits in their own pew” is one of my favorite sayings.  Not terribly compassionate, but pretty harmless really, unless you’re horrified by Natural Gas.  You know well that one of our primary aims here is to help folks recognize their self-sabotaging patterns so they can move to another pew.

The price of Gold since 2000 has gone from $300 to $1400 an ounce, and Silver from $5 to $33 an ounce.  This is not because the value of Gold or Silver has gone up, it’s because the value of the dollar has gone down.  It’s not much different when we look at Pounds or Euros or Yen.  Governments are heavily invested in hiding the declining value of their currencies from us, because currencies are like banks – if everyone tries to get out at once, everything grinds to a halt.  So it’s important to hold up the farce that everything is just fine with the Dollar and Euro and Pound and Yen.

The US and UK have hired two of their biggest banks, JP Morgan Chase and HSBC, to sell Silver and Gold derivatives “short” – that is, they borrow and sell, in order to drive the price down.  If you or I sold something short, we’d be doing it with the intention of buying it later at a reduced price, repaying our loan, and pocketing the profit.  In other words, selling short works when prices are falling.  But in this case, the big banks sell short in order to keep the price from rising even further.  They do this on a huge scale – their total derivative trades dwarf the size of the markets for the actual physical metals – which is illegal, since it’s a manipulation of prices.  But since the governments hired them to do it, it must be okay, right?

Last year, a savvy metals trader in London, by watching the pricing and trading patterns, and by listening to traders for the Big Banks bragging in the pub about how they were shafting the market, was able to discern their methods, and notified the US regulators about what they were doing and how they were doing it.  Even more, the savvy metals trader from London was able to tell the US regulators when they were going to do it and what they were going to do, before they did it.  Well, as you’d expect, the US regulators did nothing.

So now, after giving the regulators more than enough time to respond to his disclosures, the savvy London metals trader has opened up a service where, for $500 a month, he’ll sell you advance information about when the Big Banks are going to hit the metals markets, so you can “frontrun” them, or put in your trades before they put in theirs.  I find that hilariously and gloriously ironic!

The reason all this matters to ordinary folk like us, is that the values of our currencies are continuing to decline.  In the last week, the US Dollar has declined by 1%.  1% a week, if it were continuous, would add up to 50% a year, without compounding.  And that’s relative to other currencies.  The value of a barrel of Crude Oil, when measured in US Dollars as Crude Oil traditionally is, went up 3% in the last week.  You can see that in the sign at your local gas station.  Sure, it may not have been a typical week, but these kinds of weeks are getting more typical, aren’t they, as we tip toward 2012’s Big Pizza Delivery.  The 3% jump in the price of Oil gives a more accurate picture of the slumping value of the US Dollar.

If Oil goes up 50% from here, nothing much else will matter to our well-being, as the World economy will pretty much grind to a halt.  If the value of our currencies continue to drop, Food prices will go through the roof.  We’ve already heard, in comments to this blog, of people who have to choose between toilet paper and Food.  The initial impetus for the regime change in Tunisia, the first domino, was the self-immolation of a street vendor whose Produce cart was confiscated by the police because he couldn’t afford the appropriate bribe.  For folks who spend more than 50% of their income on Food, a 10% increase in the price of Food, or a 10% decline in the value of the currency they buy Food with, is devastating.

So the governments, in trying to hide the flimsiness of their currencies by holding down the price of Gold and Silver, are doing us a huuuuggge favor.  I know, extra cash is very hard to come by these days.  But look at it this way.  In two years a $10 bill, when measured by the amount of Food and energy it will buy, will be worth much less than it is today.  In the same time period, the value of the Gold or Silver you buy today for $10, will buy a lot more Food and energy.  You can go to a reputable local coin dealer and buy pre-1964 silver coins – dimes, quarters, half-dollars, dollars – that have no value to collectors.  They’re called “Junk” Silver coins – no value to collectors.  A pre-1964 dime is 90% Silver, or about 0.08 ounce of Silver, worth around $2.70 at today’s Silver price.  Including a “premium” to keep the dealer reputable, you’d be paying around $3, or a little more, per dime.  You can get the moment-to-moment Silver price, so you know how much to pay, at  Remember when those dimes were worth ten cents?

Pizza, Delivered

February 23, 2011


Golden Barite (Barium Sulfate)A reader comments…

“I don’t understand what being in the ‘permanent’ 60’s means.  It doesn’t sound good to me.  I was born in 1960, and remember my parents being worried about money.  OK, I think I just answered my own question.
My favorite memory of the sixties was, maybe 1964.  We actually had a pizza delivered to our apartment, and there were napkins included that had a chicken photo on them.  I was in pure heaven.  I loved the pizza, the napkins, and watching Guiligan’s Island on the television.  I was 4 years old.  This was a very rare treat and I knew that there was something very special about the occurrence.
I remember my father working and being gone all of the time, he worked two jobs.  I helped my mother clean and scrub the floors of the hallways of our apartment building.  My mother was always worried and spent her time watching soap operas.
We went to church on Sunday, that was our family time for the week.
Hmmm,,,,,,,,,,,, I guess we are there again.”

Yes, that’s exactly it, Magic was afoot.  The Universe was pregnant with possibility.

Helpless Hopeless

February 23, 2011

Rose QuartzHere’s a great article on possibilities for creating Miracles… .

And a clear-eyed view of recent history in the USofA… .

Not to mention the view from the Solar Plexus… .

Mars went into Pisces this evening; that may quiet the Clamor a little during March, as folks may not be so vociferous (Mars) about their Ideals (Aquarius).  Mars (action) moves into Aries (action) April 2.  Mars isn’t necessarily subdued in Pisces, just more emotional.  Less speechifying, more handwringing.  If The Movement (as we used to call it in the 60s) does quiet, it’ll just be going underground to solidify its emotional roots.  Expect folks to be back in April with deeper resolve.  Mars in Pisces could also make folks more intensely devoted to their Cause, as astral trance replaces detachment.

At 1am PST on Thursday, Mars crosses Chiron at 2 degrees of Pisces, “A squirrel hiding from hunters.”  That sounds a little more like a regrouping than a mad rush.  We could also see Miracles (Chiron) in Action (Mars), but I’m guessing we’ll be seeing more guerrilla action and less head-on confrontation for the next month.

Unfinished Business

February 21, 2011

Cuprite (Copper Oxide)We’ve been asked to be more explicit about Calleman’s notion that “2012” actually occurs on October 28, 2011.  It’s a graduate course, but Calleman’s website is .

He has a lot to say, more, I think, than any other 2012 commentator I’ve encountered, though the notion that the Planet’s crust comes unhinged from it’s “mantle” (the viscous zone beneath the crust) when the the Planet’s magnet field dissolves as the Poles shift, gives a sliver of credence to something on the order of John Cusack’s version of the story.

But as we’ve always said, in the version of astrology that I’ve been practicing for the last 40-plus years, 2012 is when The Sixties Become Permanent.  I really don’t think there’s any question that we jump from one Reality to another very frequently, or slip through the Veil from one into another, sometimes often in one day.  For instance, as I’ve been shrinking from, praying for release from, tapping out, and occasionally being able to embrace, these Ego Deaths that are streaming at us from the nethers, I’ve been popping in and out of any number of childhood dramas, past lives, and different flavors of “Present Moment Reality.”  In other words, there’s every possibility that ALL of the stories about 2012 will come true, and your  experience(s) of it will just depends on whether you turn right or left at the next light.

The myth that Reality is monolithic, is just another mass hypnosis like linear time.  That’s why various cultures and subcultures are so vehemently defending themselves against their competition, whether it’s in Cairo or Wisconsin, because the protagonists and antagonists are both terrified that the Veil is slipping off of their Monolith, and when it does, a lifetime of investment will be ruined.  I saw a great metaphor on this yesterday, the Wavy Gravy movie Saint Misbehavin’.  Talk to your local art house theater about bringing this to your town, as showings are limited at present.  Wavy assures us that there will be a DVD after the theater showings have run their course, but you wanna be sure not to miss it.  Here’s a trailer, a review, and the producer’s website, where the DVD information should eventually appear.

The other day I was talking to someone about current events, and I made some remark, and they responded with “No, this is The Sixties Becoming Permanent!”  I been talking about that for years, and almost always get a blank stare in response.  So now I hear evidence that I been heard!  And there’s no better verification than the return of Wavy Gravy to the limelight – if anyone personified the Sixies, it’s Wavy.  I haven’t gone on at length yet about just what I mean by The Sixties, but the sit-ins and love-ins in Cairo and Madison and elsewhere sure bring back memories.  Cairo and Chiron have different etymologies, Cairo rooting to something like conquest, and Chiron maybe rooting to something like healing hand, but their homophony is intriguing – exactly the sort of funhouse pun that the Master of Serendipity would use to show us the path.

It will be great to see our Chiron-Neptune Miracles arrive in the form of a shift in the Monolith, from kleptocracy to democracy.  The sit-ins, and the fact that they may be working in some places,  are amazing.  But the power vacuum must be filled by a different sort of leadership, if we’re to see anything but a shift from one kleptocrat to another.  In the US, Congress and the Presidencies have been stealing from the Social Security Insurance Fund for over half a century.  Now our erstwhile Hero of Change, Borat Obummer, refers to Social Security as an “entitlement,” not an annuity.  That’s called reframing.

Jupiter is rushing back into Aries ahead of Uranus, who still dallies in Pisces, and Chiron is rushing into Pisces ahead of Neptune, who still dallies in Aquarius.  Jupiter in Aries means our life is moving forward, ready or not, while our Soul Energy, still in Pisces, still has unfinished business to attend to.  That kinda leaves us hung out to dry, having to relate to daily life and its new challenges without the grounding strength of our Soul Chord.  Meanwhile, our Soul Energy is working with those childhood/pastlife Energies we’ve been unconsciously merged with, patiently working the barbs out so the hooks can be pulled out without making the wound bigger.

Uranus follows into Aries on March 11.  We should feel more supported after that, less like we’re out on a limb.  The last time Uranus was in Aries was 1927-1935.  That was an adventure.

Chiron meanwhile, the healing hand, which is to say, healing applied where it’s needed, has dived into the Piscean ocean.  We can expect to catch only glimpses of Chiron over the next few years, as he spends most of his time immersed in healing the lowest levels of our astral roots.  Leaving Aquarius, Chiron abandons our reframing efforts.  We’ve been attempting to heal by reframing our perspectives.  Like Einstein says, you can’t solve a problem by using the same thinking that postulated the problem.  Or as the Buddhists would put it, Change Your Mind.  Now the healing will happen in the emotional roots of an issue, not the intellectual hair on it.  Nothing ideological about the sit-ins in Cairo and Madison – simply, this is what we need.

The last time Chiron was in Pisces was 1960-1969.  Curious, eh?  The Uranus-Pluto Conjunction that marked the 60s – which we might call mandatory (Pluto) individuality (Uranus) – occurred Opposite Chiron, at 18 Virgo, “A Ouija Board.”  The reason we call 2012 When the Sixties Become Permanent is cuz the Uranus-Pluto Cycle reaches the Fourth Harmonic in 2012-2015.  In the first quarter of a cycle, from Conjunction to Fourth Harmonic, the Energy of the Cycle goes underground to fortify the roots of the Energy.  Once we get to the Fourth Harmonic, the Energy comes full into the Light.

Neptune follows Chiron into Pisces on April 3, and then again (after a return into Aqua to pick up a few forgotten issues in August) on February 3, 2012, if we’re still here then.  Neptune in Pisces is heavy.  The last time Neptune was in Pisces was 1846-1862.  Not sure it’s a reality yet in the USofA, as a great deal of the Energy behind the Tea Party and Republican victories is obvious racism, but on at least a technical level, 1846-62 saw the beginning of the move toward freeing the slaves.  Neptune is at home in Pisces.  Both represent the Ocean.  Total confusion when viewing the World through material eyes, and complete clarity when viewing the World through spiritual eyes.

“Mainstream Mystic is authentic, unselfconscious, candid, and unapologetic. Refreshingly perceptive. And absolutely inspiring. I couldn’t put it down. It made me feel closer to God/Source, to nature, to my intuitions, to life, to others, and to MYSELF. It made me feel more confident about my CONNECTION to everything. It reawakened me to the divine synchronicities that happen to me every day, the things that we tend to brush aside in the swift pace of today’s world. This is a book that—if everyone were to read and take to heart—just might begin to awaken the sleeper in all of us.” — C. Lambright / product page

Davidite (Lanthanum Yttrium Uranium Titanium Iron Oxide)While we were busy watching Hoseme get his comeuppance on the tube, the Corporate Media conveniently got to ignore what’s happening in the USofA.  From Wisconsin, for instance, a reader writes,

“All that I can say is ‘pray.’  I never thought that our country could come to such an ‘evil’ level and then blame the people for it.  In Wisconsin Governor Walker has called in the Wisconsin National Guard to protect,,,,,,, what?  Himself maybe?  He is taking away Unions, and 20% of public employee income.  I understand that we all have to give a little for the good of all.  But to call in ‘THE GUARD’ because he suspects there will be an upheaval is such a punch in the stomach it has made me so that I can’t even breathe.  He has no idea what living at poverty level is, and that is what I have lived at while being employed by the State of Wisconsin for the last 15 years.  I have been humble and have truly appreciated being employed.  We have so much to be proud of here in this State.  Now, our new governor has addressed State employees as ‘suspect.’  I am in shock and at a loss for words.  What is happening here?”

Reality is clashing with the Hype, is what’s happening.

The public school system in the USofA has been called the World’s greatest propaganda machine, selling the US system of government as The Best and Worth Dying To Defend many times over, because of our “freedom.”  In truth, the Winner Take All system in the US guarantees freedom only when you align with the “majority” – ask Julian Assange.  The World’s second-greatest propaganda machine, television, assures that the “majority” is aligned with $money.  Corporate raids of various kinds have stripped benefits and pensions from most private employees over the last couple of decades, and now there’s an organized effort to do the same for public employees.

There is a huge global trend that you don’t want to be on the wrong side of – the Rest of the World is raising their standard of living.  Since the World hasn’t gotten much bigger or more capacious, the correlate is that people in the “First World” are lowering theirs.  The Elite know this, and they’ve long since employed two strategies to milk the trend: sell things to the Rest of the World, and make sure that in the “First World” it’s other people’s living standards that fall, not theirs.  This is not new; it’s been going on for 20-30 years already, and it’s barely begun.  In the 80s Lester Brown estimated that the “First World” ate up some 22 times as many resources per capita as the people in the Rest of the World.  What do we think the ratio is today?  21?  What will it be when the trend finishes working it’s way through?  5?  1?  Less than 1?  22:1, when you look at it from the other side, is 0.05.

Another huge trend that’s been going on for even longer, at least several centuries: machines now make and do things, not people.  On a stage coach, the ratio of service employees to those served, not counting the back office, was 2:6.  Some trains now don’t even have 1 driver, the computers do it, and they carry hundreds of people.  And the back office is no longer in San Francisco, it’s in Bangalore, or untouched by human hands at all, on the internet.  The great propaganda machine has sold that to us as “productivity,” the glorious path to greater wealth and leisure!  For most people it’s the path to redundancy.  Two questions no one in the US has bothered to deal with, even centuries later – how will the excess people entertain themselves, and how will they eat?  The initiators of this great “Industrial Revolution,” the Brits, sent their excess populations to be used as arrow fodder to protect the Colonies.  In North America, we’ve run out of West for young men to escape to.

So, viewed from the Big Picture, everyday humans in the “First World” are simply a surplus “resource.”  That’s just the Reality.  How do we deal with it?  Yes, first we have to Grieve our loss.  Our Grief doesn’t care that our counterparts in China are now making five times as much as they were a few years ago, or how much we have to discount for inflation.  Whether or not we’re grieving for the loss of material welfare, we’re certainly grieving for the loss of our Idealism and our Optimism.  It’s so blatantly obvious that we can no longer trust that Great American Dream programming we got as children.  So the Media splashes us with images of displaced youth in Foreign Lands striving for freedom and democracy, just like us!  It’s pure bullshit.  They’re striving for food and jobs, just like us.

That’s what economic geography tells us about what’s happening.  What about astrology?  Well, there’s the New Global Paradigm (Chiron-Neptune) and how it has the potential to transform Despair into Miracles.  If the ghost of Ed McMahon is there in Cairo, hiring folks to go door to door passing out checks, then they’re on the leading edge of that trend.  If the military just replaces Hoseme with Squirtme, then maybe not.  Nothing has changed about the Monopoly game that the entire World is still playing.  The efforts to match up vacant houses with homeless people, and unused food with hungry people, exist, but the Corporate Media isn’t about to cover them, because it wants you to believe that you have no power, that their $money game is the only one that exists.

There’s the New Soul Chord Download that can revivify all of us if we’re willing to open to it.  What does that involve?  Well, we been writing about the Grand Cross for a coupla months now.  Means we gotta give up alotta old Identities.  Clearly the gradeschool propaganda about the American Dream is overdue for the dustbin.  It’s deep in our hearts, but it’s waaay outa date.  Strive for Self-Respect because you deserve it and you need it, not because of somebody else’s lies about what’s Right and Good.  Since Ronald Reagan read Ayn Rand, the “winners” have been using the mantra, I better get mine before somebody else takes it.  Since Jesus and long before that, some “winners” have been using the mantra, We’re all in this together.  Ram Dass’s guru advised him to Feed people.

So, what follows Grief?  Well, first of all, remember that Grief sets its own timetable.  It can’t be hurried, as much as we’d like to.  Tapping will help immensely, not because it’ll speed up the Grief, but because it’ll help us get back into the Present Moment and leave behind all those deep trances from our Past Deaths, about our Worthlessness and Powerlessness and Helplessness.  After Grief comes Response.  What’s first priority?  Are we tired?  Then sleep is most important.  Hungry?  Then food.  Do we have a bed that’s dry and warm, hot running water, and food for tomorrow?  Then Bigtime Gratitude will be very useful – most people on the planet don’t.  Political action?  You might have been able to muster some support ten years ago, when private industry was eliminating pensions and benefits, but now most people are too busy scrambling to protect their legacies.

We may not have much time to get our act together in the Garden; according to Calleman, the Whole Shebang hits crescendo a few days before Halloween of this year.  Given that the three major unconscious planets, Pluto and Uranus and Neptune, are all highly involved in the Grand Cross, pray is indeed an excellent place to start, as is meditate.  Some people say that prayer is talking, while meditation is listening.  Where there are no obvious answers, listening very carefully to the smallest, stillest voice we can hear, is paramount.

Trust follows that.  If we’re blessed to receive an answer to any prayer, we have to follow it.  An effective plan will sound way off base to our “rational” mind, because our mind will be stuck in the old paradigm.  That’s what minds do.  We need to practice appreciating the  mind’s contribution, but not necessarily acting on it.  We have to trust the instructions we get from the Other Side of the Shift.

Now, to respond directly to our friend in Wisconsin, the first question is whether there’s any competition between your very strong dynamism and very strong magnetism.  Like me, you’ve got an Outabounds Mars on one corner of the Grand Cross.  So you’re likely to have a strong sense of Doingness.  Combine that with a situation where power seems remote, and that makes frustration.  But your survival instincts are absolutely flawless – any frustrations you might be feeling about that are somebody else’s feelings, not your own.  As I’ve been working with my newfound Identity-need for Doingness, I’ve seen that my father always told me I’d never amount to anything unless I learned to get up early like him.  My natural schedule is to work late and sleep late, so my self-concept is that I’m lazy, and I hope nobody catches me at it, because it triggers shame that’s very debilitating.

So that’s your first job – healing ANY rift between your inner male, who’s always willing and able to do what’s necessary, and your inner female, who knows exactly what’s right.  As a team, they are unbeatable.  Unbeatable.  Seriously, unbeatable.  But if anybody in your past ever shamed you for either (or both!), and if the two of them judge one another at all, you’re frozen.  Any conflict there?  You gotta tap that out, and reprogram yourself to be loving and gentle with each of them all the time, so you can teach them to be loving and gentle with each other all the time.  Believe me, everything else will take care of itself just fine!

Oligarchs and Running Water

February 12, 2011

Serendibite (Calcium Magnesium Aluminum Boron Inosilicate)D’ya spose Wall Street would resign if all of the American unemployed camped out in Lower Manhattan and chanted Wall Street Elite Must Go! for 18 days?  Or camped in Washington chanting Wall Street Puppets Must Go! for 18 days.  How many days could the US go without a Police Riot “triggered” by planted thugs in black “Anarchist” uniforms, dressed to make sure the press recognizes them?  As Leonard Cohen puts it,

It’s here the family’s broken
and it’s here the lonely say
that the heart has got to open
in a fundamental way:
Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.

How would the US Military respond?  How many homeless are there in the US, and how many vacant foreclosed houses?  The Corporate Media goes on and on about Democracy, trying to get folks in the US to revert to their public-school programming and see themselves as heroes of “Democracy,” forget that they live under Oligocracy, and start fencing with their credit cards again for the good of the country.  Monkey #101 here.

My personal Chiron in Pisces Initiation metaphor has been quite literal.  Mutable signs are sometimes described as distributive – creating, organizing, and then distributing.  So the river of catarrh that the flu has been blessing me with, was a perfect picture of Pisces as distributing water.  Chiron advises us, Change your paradigm! But that’s pretty vague – the thing about our paradigms is that they’re invisible.  They define our Reality.  That’s a Tree, that’s a Road.  How can we change that?  They’re just facts.  But they aren’t facts, they’re selective discriminations.  What if we had defined them as a Vertical and a Horizontal instead.  Could be maladaptive, if we were accustomed to sleeping on just any Horizontal, and we hadn’t discriminated Heavy Moving Horizontal Objects from, say, Shrubbery.

The paradigm that the Oligarchs want us to use, is that Wall Street owns those houses, so of course they’ll lock them and board up the windows to keep out the Vandals.  Locked vacant house with cold family standing in the yard in the rain might suggest a different paradigm.  By Norman Rockwell, right?  Looks like Scarcity to me.  And criminal corruption on a massive scale.  We can illuminate our Identities, which are integrally embedded in our paradigm, by looking for our Yes, Buts…  YesBut, what about Private Property and the Rule of Law?  Isn’t that what creates stability and opportunity?  Hmmm.  Is that how the Wall Street robosigners and trick-mortgage pushers came to own the houses?

Aha, so Private Property and the Rule of Law are just tools for the Oligarchs to bully the Sheople?  That would be a change of paradigm, relative to our public-school programming.  Wait!  trick-mortgage pushers and contract jails hire janitors!  Well, sure, non-union, but Jobs!! Hallelujah.  Let’s see, was that Rupert Murdoch’s paradigm, or Michelle Bachman’s?

Now Chiron was unhealable, and the flu virus is very good at evoking feelings of helplessness and hopelessness.  Flu veterans tell me it lasts a month.  A month!  I don’t have a month to spare.  I’ve already wasted a week of Sunshine.  Okay, if Chiron is Grace to the Identity Grand Cross, then I need to relax and surrender and inquire.  Whoa – there’s an unconscious Identity I haven’t been aware of lately, Doingness! Relax, rest, give it over.  You have all the time in the World.  What a swarm of YesButs that triggers, on many levels, many quite deep into that old unfinished business stuff.  Okay, so I could spend about a month tappingYesBut, we’re out of time. The calendar is closing.  Is there one Summer left?  Two?  Seven?

But I know a great Homeopathic Physician.  Now that’s a change of paradigm.  What in the old paradigm is impossible, becomes in the new paradigm an everyday Miracle.

Whenever we encounter a glitch, we have to go back over the prior several days, to see what we’ve prayed for, asked for, affirmed, intended, or visualized.  We may have forgotten to also ask for a loving and gentle release.  It could have been a casual I wish… that we didn’t even think of as an intention.  We have no idea how powerful we are.  Our glitches, if we can embrace them so, are usually a fast route to removing the Limiting Beliefs that stood in the way of manifesting our recent intention.  What have I asked for recently?  Good health, healthy and flexible joints.  Is the flu – or the homeopathic – clearing away some latent inflammation?  Or just protecting my joints from working outside while it’s still cold?  Dunno.  May never know.  Does the release depend on the Beliefs coming into conscious awareness?  Dunno.

I do know, from hypermodern biology, that each mitochondria is directly linked to the Zero Point Field, from which it can draw infinite energy (and information) directly, if it’s not blocked by the Venetian-blind-like microtubules in the cell.  Toxins can “close” the blinds, and held emotions can close the blinds.  In this paradigm, an emotional release can produce Change that looks like Miracles.  And clearing can open us up to intuitive information that crosses the Veil from other dimensions.

Now remember the bottom-line issue we’ve been working on since the Solstice – Identity, clearing away unconscious Identities (Juno) to make space for our new Soul Chord Download (Jupiter-Uranus) that will transform (Pluto) our Karma and our future (Dragon) – the Solstice Eclipse Grand Cross.  If we hope to bring anything into consciousness at this time of the century, we need first to look for an Identity component!  I hadn’t realized it till a few days ago when reading an email from Lorraine Valente, that one corner of the Grand Cross was sitting on my Outabounds Mars – vitality and doingness.  Isn’t that a clue.

Remember when we said that because of Juno and the Dragon’s Tail we’d be graced with the opportunity to let go of our emotional attachments to our past deaths?  And that when we did that, the Liberation would be immense?  Lotsa people are still dying from the flu.  So I can tap my way out of a belief in sickness unto death – in fact, I have a history even in this lifetime with Kierkegaard’s book of that name.  A doctor prescribed that I read this book after he diagnosed me with MS.  I never did read it.  Instead I changed my paradigm and lost the symptoms.  My life at the time was spiraling into a big Victim trip, and I began to take Responsibility, and stepped out of it.  Responsibility is not Blame; it’s the ability to respond.

So we’ve uncovered unconscious identifications with sickness unto death, and with doingness.  Better throw in working myself to death as long as it’s in the ballpark.  I create my life so I don’t often have to do what I really don’t want to do, so I don’t have much resentment about mis-spending my time (except when I can’t take advantage of Sunshine), so I don’t even usually think of it as work – it can’t be work if you enjoy it!  But if I phrase it as DOing myself to death it’s not ambiguous.

Yesterday I got a letter from my (non-Wall Street) bank billing me for an NSF charge on a $5,000 check that I didn’t write.  Many years ago I was hiking with my friend Alan, and we were eating lunch, three days from the nearest road, far above timberline, when a lone stranger came over the ridge and asked to join us.  We finished lunch and hiked up onto an exposed plateau, where there was the usual crop of summer wildflowers, but they were all dwarfed, a fourth as big as normal.  I was fascinated by these, when Alan asked our new companion what his name was.  He said my name, and it was a good thing we were on a plateau, or I would have fallen right off the mountain.  I tranced off so far that I literally had to get out my driver’s license to verify that I was me too, not just this imposter!

There were a number of other “coincidences” – I was a geographer, he a geologist.  He was from the area where my mother’s people were from, not my father’s, so the family name was mismatched for him to be a relative.  I had recently rented an apartment, and in so doing had reserved one, then changed my mind and rented a unit in the building next door.  When I told the other landlord I had changed my mind, he gave me a really funny look.  Later I found out, yes, my namesake had rented that apartment, 30 yards from the one I rented.  He came over to use the pool in my building.  It gets deeper and deeper, mindboggling actually, but I’ll stop there.  He was a great guy, we had a lot in common, I wished I could be his friend, but his name made me nervous.  Brian Greene says he has “no evidence today of parallel universes.”  But I do.  When the Reality of your own non-uniqueness comes through like that, you lose a good deal of attachment to Identity.  It turned out to be a bank error, and not bleedthrough, but the Realities were triggered.

Then there’s the highly public national Identity that the Egyptians are living through.  It triggers the nationalistic programming we all share, and moistens our eyes with more running water.
