    Ok, here is this theory I have:

    When you balance everything, including balancing itself, you will start speeding up the growth process and go straight into Ascenscion mode.
    (Oops, there is that word again...
    quickly, Ulli, descend descend ....
    two steps forward, two steps back.)
    Ascension is not a dirty word, it's just another word for nothing left to loose (bad song refence).

    As for answering little one's question, my father's idea was to show me how to think my way through things and thus take my tender little building and budding mind, and put it in a direction of growth that wired it for growth in intelligence.

    he announced that he was not omnipotent, by helping answer as best he could. Then, when it came to things he did not know, we queried (brainstormed) together, and then he left me to brainstorm on my own when he really had no clue.

    thus...instead of licking my brain and sticking it to the television, or trying to be god for me and know everything, he licked my brain and stuck it to itself, into an ever expanding loop. one of constant growth via growing the mechanism required for self inquiry..as a base root function of my mental wiring.
    Well said. And lucky you that you had a dad who encouraged you to use your brain and mind
    in such a productive way that you know how to think for yourself.

    My use of the word "Ascension" is literal...which is the way I use most words...
    but then there seems to be a consensus as to what happens when meanings of expressions change...
    and I had just been reading it's association on this forum with the GFL, and channeled materials...
    so I was being facetious.

    Been on the interwebz again:

    Quote 'At what would turn out to be my last darshan of Maharaj-ji's physical body, I was petrified with fear about returning to the U.S. after so many years. I hadn't worn a pair of jeans or shoes for such a long time that I couldn't imagine what it would be like. I didn't want to ask Maharaj-ji what I should do in America, but all of a sudden I blurted out in anguish, 'Maharaj-ji! How can I serve you in America?' 'He looked at me with mock disgust and said, 'What is this? If you ask how you should serve then it is no longer service. Do what you want.' I couldn't believe my ears. How could doing what I wanted to do be of service to him? I didn't have that kind of faith. I just sat there, stunned. Then after a minute or so he looked over at me, smiling sweetly, and asked, 'So, how will you serve me?' 'My mind was blank. It was time for me to leave for Delhi, to catch the plane back to the States. He was looking at me and laughing. I bent down and touched his feet for the last time and when I looked up he, he was beaming at me, 'So, how will you serve me in America?' I felt like I was moving in a dream. I floated across the courtyard and bowed to him one more time from a distance. As I did, the words came to me, 'I will sing to you in America.' 'Soon afterwards, during the full moon in September, Neem Karoli Baba left his body. Now he had to be found within. The chanting, the meditation, the puja and all the wonderful time spent with Maharaj-ji turned out to be seeds that he himself had planted in my heart... seeds that would keep growing and blossom by his Grace.

    Beautiful! Thanks John. Dangerous stuff that going on the interwebz

    Those magpies or " Maggies " as we call them here can be
    very territorial . Here in nesting season you have to watch
    it if you are walking under big trees . They have a habit of
    swoopping people and dogs that come anywhere near their
    nests . As kids we often had a baby Maggie as pets as they
    would often fall out of nests or parents would get killed on
    the road .
    The favorite one was one we called Charlie who would come
    inside and stand in front of the fridge squawking at it the same
    way they do for their parents . Feed me feed me .
    It took a liking to our terrier dog too and would follow it
    everywhere . The terrier , Tammy used to go next door to
    our neighbor for sneaky second breakfast, Charlie learnt
    that was a great perk and used to turn up too , knocking
    on their slinging glass door with his beak .
    He couldn't fly for ages so he used to just trot around with
    the dog . Which would have saved him form certain death
    from the local cats . He even started barking like the dog
    Quite an odd couple they were .

    I love how this place is turning out to be the house of
    birds . I think I will make some bird baths for them in
    summer. And I must remember that sticky recipie we
    used to make for all the little finches . It was a honey
    oatmeal mix that we would put in a cup then push a big
    button on a piece of string into the centre of it .
    When set we would hang them up in the wattle trees and
    the little finches and honey eaters just loved them .
    I'm yet to see a cat here I think that's the difference
    last place cats were everywhere and. much less birds
    The greatest privilege of a human life is to become a
    midwife to the awakening of the Soul in another person.”
    ~ Plato

    These are the questions of the new..race(?)...of four year olds...
    "What are angels? Are you an angel? Where is heaven? Doesn't invisible mean it's bad? What happens when you die? Do you come back to life? Then what happens..."

    I sh*t you not...4 years and 3 months old...........may we be granted the wisdom to answer these appropriately...
    Glad things worked out OK with your daughter!

    A couple of years ago I listened to a soon to be 5 year old chat in the bath. I began paying more attention when I heard him talk about the "time before I was a baby".
    What do you mean, I asked? Before I came into your tummy, he answered, I was flying about with my friends.
    OK, I said. How did you choose which mother you wanted?
    I didn´t choose, he answered. A wave brought me to you. A wave, but not a water wave, he specified.
    1inMany and Swan, I totally relate. My son (7 now) would talk about the time before he was born and describe how he picked our family. He has always had this very deep knowing about spirit...even without my influence. In fact when he was toddler if he got to the tuner for the radio he would put on monk style chanting....I don't even know what station regularly would broadcast that, lol.

    1inMany very glad to hear you are having a peaceful moment....and things are getting sorted for Peanut, I would have done the same as her.

    Ok, so I am going to put a request out here for some "help" / good intent vibes....
    Tomorrow, the DA will be questioning my son to see if going further in pressing charges against my husband is a viable option...now I have come to the point that the personal consequences my husband receives are not the issue...for me, the main concern is that my son can be at peace with his response and that he stays safe from further abuse....

    This will be the first time we have had to officially deal with this ongoing issue since my mother's recent passing late June. I must admit that even though both Jonathan and myself know her to be "with us" I do find the lack of her physical presence to be more difficult than I'd like to admit. She had been there from the 1st moment the abuse was disclosed and remained more of our support system than I knew until she died.

    My son told me a few days after she died that grandma chose to go to heaven and take his pain with her and so she could be with him during the routines when he would have to talk about "it"...what profound wisdom for a child! Now I just need to keep that with me and remind him of his own words tomorrow....and just let him know whatever the outcome is, it is ok, and he is perfect and without fault ....

    So if you could keep us in your thoughts tomorrow 4pm est, we would truly be grateful.

    Freedom means that ...
    anything becomes possible.

    I read this book many years ago, and now that I'm manifesting reality faster than ever
    I can see how prophetic it was.
    To see if there is a catch one has to read the book.

    Sitting in bed with laptop. No mind function really, feelings subdued. I'm feeling a sense of release, that my husband will be at group 9-3 pm five days a week for a month. I need the time to rest. Not be on edge waiting for the snap. I've been merciless in response to the snap lately. You snap, I bite. He is taking my attitude with remarkable meekness. It is so fast, so involuntary, it is after the fact I become aware of what I've done. And then I scold myself for laying extra burdens on him just as he is getting started on his journey. Hey ho way to go Sierra, what is that about? I should be fading like a Boojun, only to re-apparate at my sister's house now so close down the way. And if it gets destructive, I will. Probably as he changes, I change, that is the way of it. Not sure about this change though.

    I've been sleeping day and night, while my husband has reorganized the pantry, moved all the spices to racks he has labeled that slide out in the pantry, hired two workers, moved rugs and furniture, fixed one of the sprinklers in the yard ...

    I live on the edge of a canyon, a precipice. The garden is bowl shaped, and there is a thousand foot drop in a little ways, down to the Butte Canyon Creek. It feels vertiginous at all times living here. Hard to describe. On the deck, I face five ridges covered in trees and there are pine trees marching up both sides of the garden bowl. It is so quiet. At night star gazing, I literally cannot stop smiling, at the beauty laid before me. The black pine trees feathering out to the sky clearing over the garden bowl, the dark blue sky, the stars glittering and slowly wheeling their way to dawn, the lessening of dark at the horizon, I've done it again, stayed up to watch the night pass.

    Eyes are funny. There is a branch of the pine tree, that looks like an eagle, legs out stretched, head stooping, ready to land on the deck railing. No matter how many pictures I take, I cannot see the eagle in the picture. Only with my eyes.

    Exhaling.

    I'm in awe of Peanut. I'm in love with Peanut. She is fierce, and quick.

    Anchor, you are creating a wake with the speed in which you are moving and I am surfing. Thank you.

    Love, love, love to you all, Sierra

    Jorge Strunz and Ardeshir Farah have been an acoustic guitar duo for some 25 years. Strunz, a Costa Rican, and Farah, an Irani, brought together a fusion of Middle Eastern, Latin, and Mediterranean music before world fusion music was commonplace.


    Rainmaker, from the 1990 album Primal Magic, features a traditional Tarahumara chant from Mexico, courtesy of wind player-percussionist Luis Peréz.

    The slides are of several rain deities, Tlaloc (Aztec), and Chac (Mayan), in addition to rain ceremonies from other parts of the world.

    Quote Posted by amandapoet (here)
    Ok, so I am going to put a request out here for some "help" / good intent vibes....
    Tomorrow, the DA will be questioning my son to see if going further in pressing charges against my husband is a viable option...now I have come to the point that the personal consequences my husband receives are not the issue...for me, the main concern is that my son can be at peace with his response and that he stays safe from further abuse....

    This will be the first time we have had to officially deal with this ongoing issue since my mother's recent passing late June. I must admit that even though both Jonathan and myself know her to be "with us" I do find the lack of her physical presence to be more difficult than I'd like to admit. She had been there from the 1st moment the abuse was disclosed and remained more of our support system than I knew until she died.

    My son told me a few days after she died that grandma chose to go to heaven and take his pain with her and so she could be with him during the routines when he would have to talk about "it"...what profound wisdom for a child! Now I just need to keep that with me and remind him of his own words tomorrow....and just let him know whatever the outcome is, it is ok, and he is perfect and without fault ....

    So if you could keep us in your thoughts tomorrow 4pm est, we would truly be grateful.

    ~blessings,
    Amanda

    Hello Village! I've been out of town on work for a while, I've finally just now caught up with the thread. Earlier, a few pages ago, Carmody and Amandapoet shared their dreams, and I don't think this is related, but it was within the same time frame, and I thought I'd share my recent dream. It's out there, and to restate, this was only a dream, of course:

    So, I was living back in my hometown with my family and parents in a large spacious, office-like home that bordered a parking lot of the local College (PL, you know the reference here). We were having a festive moment, and through the large windows of the spacious living/dining area, we saw and heard these small crafts/ships hover through the yard into the parking lot. The craft were shaped like the now retired space shuttles, but were the size of the hover craft that Luke Skywalker flew around in in Star Wars. The craft held only one pilot/occupant. They were blue and gray and with USAF insignia emblazoned on them. Three of them flew over the parking lot, but only one of them began its work, while the others hovered and maintained the perimeter. Some type of plasma beam shot out from underneath the craft that was hovering around twenty feet in the air, totally pulverized the asphalt into dust. This happened in a quadrant and revealed the earth underneath it. Not having found what they were looking for, the craft continued the same procedure by turning the asphalt to dust in large rectangles and exposing the earth in search for something. It was on about the sixth or seventh attempt that they found what they were looking for. Each craft made a formation and beamed down below, and we watched in disbelief from inside the house as this truly enormous crystal rose from the earth and was then lowered onto a covered truck bed and driven away. The only way I can describe it was a 20' X 10' X 10' piece of black tourmaline that glimmered with opalescence as with opal or labradorite. After the truck left, we were immediately visited by some brass. Along with them they had visitors. The fact that we were threatened not to talk about what we saw was not weird; what was strange was that there were three mutant like humanoids with them, the visitors, each grotesque and frightening in their own manner, and they were the ones who threatened us. As vivid as the dream was, the details of these creatures were left out of my memory, because they were so threatening and grotesque, that I realized the dream and awoke within it, blew the whistle and exited the menagerie.
