3 Bobcat Visitors

What a gift it was to see these three endangered bobcats.

One morning a few days ago, these 3 bobcats, Mama and her two babies came to check out the fake deer that are in our front garden. The 2 young bobcats came to sniff it to see if it was real. They disappeared into the forest across the street, followed by Mama watching very closely. The coloring of these bobcats was much lighter than the one I saw last March.

Bobcats usually breed between February and March, but with the climate change bringing global warming to the Northeast, these bobcats obviously bred earlier.

Today I noticed they left their footprints in the snow this morning after the driveway was cleared and after we came back from shopping.

I followed the prints to the Mountain Laurel bushes in the back yard.

Metaphysically speaking, Bobcat Medicine represents:

KEYNOTE: Silence and Secrets.

CYCLE OF POWER: Late Winter and Spring

According to Ted Andrews book, Animal Speak, the Bobcat is also called the wild cat. It can be confused with a lynx, which is usually grayer and always larger.

The bobcat is usually a solitary animal, and those of us with this totem often find themselves in the same situation. Coming to terms with that – learning to be alone without being lonely, is part of what bobcat teaches. The females often have a small territory, but the males can be quite nomadic, overlapping territories of five or six females.

Because it is solitary, those who have the bobcat as a totem will find that their friends often share secrets. It is important for anyone with a bobcat totem not to break confidences.

The tail, being at the end of the spinal column, relates to the kundalini life force energy. Like with these pictures, the tip of the bobcat’s tail is black, and its underneath is white, reflecting the ability to turn on and off the creative forces as needed.

The bobcat’s keen eyesight, sensitive whiskers, and tufted ears make it a superb nighttime hunter. Those with a bobcat totem will be most effective at night. These characteristics have ties to most of the predominant psychic arts.

March 3, 2022, a bobcat crossed the road in front of my car around 8:45 p.m. At first, I thought it was a domestic cat, but it was a very large cat. Then I observed that this cat had no tail. It was quite a muscular cat. When I got home, I researched what I saw online and discovered I had observed a bobcat. Then I wondered if bobcats were native to my area in Massachusetts. I was surprised to find out they are.

Bobcat Front Footprint

After that bobcat sighting last March, which had a light snowfall the night before, I notice what I thought were domestic cat footprints walking up the driveway from the old forest across the street, by the car, and into the backyard.

Now I see that our property is part of its natural habitat. It has not bothered us and keeps to itself all the years we’ve lived here.

But the prints last March were like these I saw today, which were larger than past cat footprints I had observed, and had four larger toe pads in the front, and one in the back of it. I believed then it was a bobcat that walked up my driveway, by my car, close by the side of my house, and into the back yard. Now I am certain of it.

I gratefully thank the bobcat and fox who live in the wild area I have chosen to live. This year is the first year that I have caught only two mice in the house. I think the Bobcat and the fox are fantastic at mouse catching.

The following is from Learn about bobcats | Mass.gov :

The bobcat is the only wild cat now found in Massachusetts. Bobcats are common in the central and western parts of the state, present in the northeast, and expanding into the southeast.


The bobcat is a medium-sized feline, approximately twice the size of a domestic house cat. It can be easily identified by its short, “bobbed” tail (up to 12 inches), prominent face ruff, and slightly tufted ears. Its coat of short, dense fur can vary from a yellowish to reddish brown with distinct or faint black spots along its flanks and white underparts that are also spotted with black. In summer, the fur tends to be shorter and more reddish in color, becoming longer and much paler in the winter, although there can be much variation in color among individuals. Adult bobcats weigh 15–35 pounds and measure 28–47 inches in length. Size varies depending on sex, as male bobcats are approximately 33% larger than their female counterparts.

Life History

Bobcats breed from February through March. They are polygamous and do not form lasting pair bonds. The young are born after a 62-day gestation period in April or May. Females produce one litter each year consisting of 1–4 kittens, with an average litter size of 2. The female is the exclusive provider, and the male does not participate in raising the young.

At birth, the kittens are blind and helpless but have a thick coat of spotted fur. The kittens are born in a den lined with dried grass, leaves, moss, and other soft vegetation that the female scrapes into the den. Dens are located in rock crevices, under rocky ledges, in caves, in brush piles, or in hollow trees, stumps, or logs.

Females may use the same den sites for several years in a row. The female nurses the kittens until they reach two months of age. At one month of age, the young begin taking solid food and venturing from the den. The young remain with the adult female until they are full grown, usually through their first fall or winter.

Females reach sexual maturity at one year of age, although they do not typically produce their first litter until two years of age. Males do not reach sexual maturity until two years of age.

Bobcats live an average of twelve years in the wild and females continue to produce one litter per year until death. Although some young fall prey to owls, coyotes, and adult male bobcats, food abundance is the primary factor affecting the survival of both kittens and juvenile bobcats.

They also like to eat wild rabbits, which we have in our yard, along with owls around here.

Bobcats are an important natural resource in Massachusetts. They are classified as a furbearer species, for which a management program and regulated hunting and trapping seasons have been established.

Everyone walking small dogs in old forest roads, please remain alert.



We have spent most of our lives forming sharp opinions and cutting-edge judgments like the sharpening of ice-skating blades for precision skating.

It is the opinions and judgments that tear down, compared to those that build up, which make humanity backtrack in social integrity and maturity. Nothing ever stays the same. Change is always in flux.

What distinguishes advancement in human endeavors rather than reverting back into old and dysfunctional patterns?

Empathy, care and concern of others included in the mix of our decision making, is the pinnacle point that must be addressed. By not taking in the cause and effect of our thoughts, words, and actions upon others, we begin the regression back into the animal kingdom from which we came.

Advances in technology, medicine and the sciences will matter little if we use them for the destruction of ourselves and the planet.

Even Jesus said in Matthew 7:1, “Stop judging!”

Still, we all have free will, to usurp the rights of others, or to have empathy for others. The choice is ours.

History Repeats Itself Until Someone Stands Up For Peace ~ Integrity ~ Truth ~ Honor

My husband, John Hourihan, won a national award in the National Society of Newspaper Columnists in 2008 for the following post which is just as poignant today as it was then. His columns have won numerous awards on local, state, national, and international news. He has had his hand on the heartbeat of our Nation and the world. John stands up for truth in the face of adversity, no matter what the cost. Truth matters to John.

“I wrote this column decades ago, during W’s administration. I remembered it on (Jan. 6) as I watched the president instigate a coup as if we were some humiliating third-world pit.

“I’m sure she still slumbers in your memory, that first real beauty of your youth.

“For every young man who has stepped from childhood into the world of the differences between men and women, there was that one first beautiful girl, so physically perfect you would do anything just to stand near her.

“It was the same feeling as when you were first told as a child about the red, white, and blue of a shining country and how lucky we were to be born into the most wonderful place on Earth.

“Looking at her features was such pleasure you would do anything for her just because of her appearance. When you first saw her you were in love, wanted to protect her, stand guard for her, stand beside her, and keep her in your heart. Her physical beauty was so impressive that nothing else mattered.

“She was perfection. Remember her?

“Mine was on a California beach in the mid-60s. We soldiers-in-training had all flopped into a Corvair convertible at the Presidio of Monterey and unloaded in Carmel. Reclined on the beach, propped up on my elbows, I watched them walk by.

“Then, her dark silhouette appeared in the heat haze above the sand, coming up from the water. Ten yards or so in front of us, in the bright sunlight, she stopped and lifted her surfboard high above her head. It balanced horizontal for a split second and then she stuck it into the sand. Her actions passed frame by frame; her wet blond hair flipping back, her bathing suit barely winning the battle to hold her decent, her back arching and then snapping forward, and then as she let go of the board, she looked directly at me and smiled, a perfect white smile, burning blue eyes and a flame red bikini.

“Most on the beach just admired her from a distance, but I wanted to be closer, to see the curve of her lip, the softness of her eyes, to feast on her tanned skin.

“We spent an afternoon. She tried to teach me to surf on a board that was too small, and then we passed part of the night at a beach party somewhere down the coast.

“By the time I returned to the barracks I was in love. I couldn’t close my eyes without seeing her face, her lips and everything else a young man would look at. It was burned into my brain.

“As I stumbled into the bright lights of barracks 14, there on the bed in the cubicle next to mine, the guys I had been at the beach with were all hovering over a magazine on the bunk, and when I came in, they turned to me in awe. “This is her, right Hourihan?” Biloxi asked. I looked. The centerfold was the girl I had spent the day with. “No,” I lied, “That’s not her,” and walked off feeling betrayed: proud, but betrayed.

“Years later, a still young but grizzled combat vet, heard she had been arrested. She even did time for hard drugs. Even later, I saw a picture of her. Her beauty had been bruised and misshapen, and she didn’t look at all like the picture embedded for years in my brain – the standard by which I had judged all other beauty.

“I sat that night in an EM club drinking and thought of how she was like my country. I had loved both for their initial beauty. But in a few years of revelations, my country had been laid bare, battered beyond recognition. So many times over the years I thought of the beach and the eyes and the bikini and wanted her back the way she had been that day — so beautiful you could die for her.

“And when I look now at my country, I want the red, white and blue beauty of her returned. I want someone to return to me the fantasy of perfection that used to be America. Return to us our rights; return our love; return to us our country. I felt betrayed that night under the desk lamp in the barracks to see her laid naked and folded out for everyone to see. And I feel betrayed now that my country has been splayed for the world by our own government.

“We have been told it was OK to torture people in some instances; it was OK to deny the Bill of Rights to some people all the time, and to all people some of the time; and we built walls around our borders; and attacked half the world for religious reasons and lies.

“No longer will anyone die for her just because she is so beautiful, so perfect.

“It is foolish now to tell young people they are supposed to love their country, when as a group of adults, we don’t love her anymore. Not like we used to.

“But sometimes, in a quiet moment, I remember how awe inspiring she has been, and how, for one shining moment, she was America the Beautiful, the perfection of youth.

“Remember her?

“It would be nice to feel that way again.”

John taught Little League how to use the shift in the field for positional advantage. After this book came out, I noticed major baseball teams all over the country started using “the shift.”

Picture of the former St. Mary’s Central Catholic Grammer School. This book is laugh-out-loud funny.

John’s life in a barrio in Arizona having knife fights at 10 and 11 years old.

John’s life in a white, Anglo-Saxon Protestant town. This is an insight into the paradox of dreams and realities of a brilliant mind in a youthful body.

He’d survived elementary school with the nuns. He lived through a year in the southwest, making friends in the barrio. He endured the class warfare of his Massachusetts high school. So when college did not work out the way he’d thought it would, John did the next best thing: he enlisted. Nothing could have prepared him for what was about to happen.

John is now retired after having won state, regional and national awards for his opinion columns in several New England newspapers. He received the Cross of Gallantry for valor in Vietnam, where he served three tours as a Vietnamese linguist.

It is my hope that you enjoy reading these insightful books on accurate history which always keep a thread or a party of humor throughout. These books are hard to put down once you open them.

Happy New Year!

Paying for sex, bartering sex for payment, and human trafficking on a larger scale is beneath the human dignity for which we are created to experience. In every culture, in every country, regardless of race, color, creed, and gender; reducing men, women and children to a means of making other people money, or paying debts, or payment for food or material goods, or even as means of payment for sex for human pleasure, is a misunderstanding of the full potential and dharma of every human being. There is a reason every person is born on this earth. It is not for other people’s financial gain, or the misuse of sex.

Each and every person has the God-given right to the privacy of their own body, and to live their own life, without threat, harm, manipulation, bribery, or any other means of usurping their own personal power.

Below are statistics that may surprise you.


People do not own people. People are not for sale, not even for five minutes. Any and all practices of buying and selling people in any form goes against The Creation of humanity.

Some cultures practice various forms of caste systems, in order to keep certain people down, while elevating others. However, this practice goes against the God-given human dignity of all people, in every country, in every situation and circumstance. We even see financial forms of caste systems in all countries.

How does your country take care of its poor?

Sometimes people like to say one thing but do another. In some shady practices, someone might say they want to go and get a massage. Therapeutic massage is extremely beneficial for healing stress, and for the recovery of sore muscles. But in less than reputable parlors, “happy endings,” those sexual favors that do come with a price, take place worldwide.

What is the problem?

The charts and graphs in this post are dated. Today’s financial gains at the expense and misuse of humanity is staggering. After recent discussions with people yesterday, who seemed unaware that human trafficking still exists, I decided to repost this article which I first put on my blog in 2014.

Human dignity that each and every human being is born with, which comes directly from God, and no other human being, cannot honorably be taken away by any other human being, without being in direct violation of the Creator himself. Some may attempt to justify their actions by erroneously thinking that it is a “win-win” for all involved, someone gets paid for a service, and someone gets that service. However, people are not things to be used, nor to be bought and sold.

The conscience knows.

Please join me in praying for people caught in these less than human roles, that they might be helped and regain their dignity as The Creation of All intended for every human being to have.

The National Human Trafficking Hotline is supported by the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) of the United States (U.S.) Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as part of a financial assistance award totaling $4.5 million annually with 78% percentage funded by ACF/HHS and $1.3 million and 22% percentage funded by non-governmental sources.

Is Your Spirit Enslaved By A Cult? ~ 14 Cult Markers ~ The Law of Invisible Secret

There is a way to recognize and get out of all cults, religious, political, social, or otherwise. There are 14 tell-tale makers to watch out for. Reclaim the personal power you were first born with prior to your indoctrination into false truths which seek to rob you of your integrity, and possessions, including your Spirit and Soul. You hold the rights to your life, not any social agenda, religious structure, or political power play.

Below is from pages 181-184 of the book And they called his name Immanuel by the Phoenix-Journal #02. It is Jesus, who also is known by Immanuel, Adoni, and Sananda speaking. Please understand that these literary works were written long before the political and social “correctness” of our time. Seek to understand the deeper meaning behind human dated language. It is not correct to impose on important past written material the evolution of human language. If you stumble on the word “man” for example, rather than today’s comprehension of “humanity,” you will miss the point.

Also, And they called his name Immanuel by the Phoenix-Journal #02, states on the opening publication information page, that these texts are deliberately not protected by copyright to get the best possible dissemination. It is stated on page 6 that the words of the Phoenix Journals cannot be copyrighted since these books are compilations of information already available on Earth.


“I said it two thousand years ago and it has come to pass, I believe, that there would be many cults established in my name, but only for the purpose that man can be enslaved in his spirit thereby giving the cults great power over the people and the land, and over money. Therefore, I tell you that no cult is justified unless it solely recognizes The Creation as the HIGHEST.

“Therefore, in all the years there would be no cult which preached Truth, Knowledge, and Wisdom. But I further stated; this WILL happen in two times a thousand years when the time comes that my teaching will be preached anew, without being falsified. I foretold that until this time there would be so many false cults that they could not be counted. Further, they would be found on the blood of MEN, and on hatred one against another, greed, and power.

“But as they are established, they shall be destroyed again, for the Truth shall triumph. THERE IS NO UN-TRUTH (LIE) THAT SHALL NOT BE DENOUNCED AND THERE IS NOTHING HIDDEN THAT SHALL NOT BECOME EVIDENT.

“Men shall recognize what is in front of his face, and what is hidden from him will reveal itself to him when he searches for truth and the explanation of wisdom. But truth lies deeply in the Laws of The Creation, and there shall man seek it and find it. But he who seeks shall not stop seeking until he finds, and when he finds he will be deeply shaken and astonished, but then he will rule over the universe. For that man shall recognize that the kingdom is within himself and outside of himself.”

I interject here to point out the 14 well-known cult markers for your consideration for yourself and others.

There is more than one cult present in the world today. All of them deny that they are a cult. There are 14 tell-tale marks present in all cults. The following points out these life-altering pitfalls to watch out for.

All cults have similar characteristics. Here is a list of 14 characteristics that help to define a cult:

“1. • The group displays excessively zealous and unquestioning commitment to its leader, and (whether he is alive or dead) regards his belief system, ideology, and practices as the Truth, as law.

2. • Questioning, doubt, and dissent are discouraged or even punished.

3. • Mind-altering practices (such as meditation, chanting, speaking in tongues, denunciation sessions, or debilitating work routines) are used in excess and serve to suppress doubts about the group and its leader(s).

4. • The leadership dictates, sometimes in great detail, how members should think, act, and feel (e.g., members must get permission to date, change jobs, or marry or leaders prescribe what to wear, where to live, whether to have children, how to discipline children, and so forth).

5. • The group is elitist, claiming a special, exalted status for itself, its leader(s), and its members (e.g., the leader is considered the Messiah, a special being, an avatar or the group and/or the leader is on a special mission to save humanity).

6. • The group has a polarized, us-versus-them mentality, which may cause conflict with the wider society.

7. • The leader is not accountable to any authorities (unlike, for example, teachers, military commanders, or ministers, priests, monks, and rabbis of mainstream religious denominations).

8. • The group teaches or implies that its supposedly exalted ends justify whatever means it deems necessary. This may result in members participating in behaviors or activities they would have considered reprehensible or unethical before joining the group (e.g., lying to family or friends, or collecting money for bogus charities).

9. • The leadership induces feelings of shame and/or guilt in order to influence and control members. Often this is done through peer pressure and subtle forms of persuasion.

10. • Subservience to the leader or group requires members to cut ties with family and friends, and radically alter the personal goals and activities they had before joining the group.

11. • The group is preoccupied with bringing in new members.

12. • The group is preoccupied with making money. The group will disagree with this statement, but will be interested in you handing over your home and possessions at the end of your life.

13. • Members are expected to devote inordinate amounts of time to the group and group-related activities.

14. • Members are encouraged or required to live and/or socialize only with other group members.” Taken from the online article Characteristics of Cults,” by Janna Lalich and Michael Pantone.

Now back to the words of Immanuel:


“Man shall look up to the stars, for there rules majestic peace and sublimity. In unchangeable, timeless order, there takes place the infinite change through days and months and years, running into centuries, millennia and millions of years.

“Man may look down to Earth also, for there too is creative activity and timeless becoming, being and passing toward constantly new creating. Where nature is left to its own devices, there rules greatness, dignity and beauty, all in beautiful harmony.

“However, where traces of human order are active, there smallness, lack of dignity and lack of beauty testify to disharmony. But man who, with swollen chest, calls himself the crown of Creation does not recognize Creation, and makes people equal to it. But this man who tamed the fire and thinks to rule the Earth, will not go so very far. He will learn to contain the water and to run about in the air, but during that process he will forget to recognize The Creation above him and Its Laws. And thus, he will forget to seek the Truth and the Wisdom. He will also forget to live peacefully as man among men. His battle cry will be “the battle,” since he will want to conquer through violence. For when he thinks he has power in his hands, he uses this power to enslave and shed blood.

“He will speak of honor and freedom and of knowledge, but in reality, it is only hypocrisy, force, and false teachings. Thus, man will lose his face in the future, and wear an evil and false mask for appearance’s sake. And many will develop into beasts and spend their earthly days in ignorance. Man’s aim and thinking is geared only toward acquisition and power.

“With his mind, man will classify the things of this world to make them serve him, irrespective of the fact that by doing so, he destroys the Laws of Nature manifold. He will no longer believe in timeless Truths which are based upon the Laws of Nature. In his self-deception, human sciences will mean more to him than all the Laws of Nature and of The Creation. In his confusion man will believe in this miserable concept of life, which is produced by the false teachings of the cults and determined by human laws and changes in the structures of power in the various countries.

“Because man does not gain in knowledge of himself from the creative point of view, he will want to force his life with external means. He will delude his fellow man and the whole world with false means. Where there is some trust left, he will change it into distrust and untruths. He will get further and further away from the true life.


“Man will also lose the basis of the oldest wisdom which says, “That for life man is the measure of all things, for after all he is part of The Creation – One with Creation. But the time will come for man that he has to turn about and get back to the timeless values of life. In the beginning only a few persons will know that man does not only live on earth, but that his spirit reaches into another world which cannot be comprehended with the ordinary senses.


“The other world is the true home of the spirit, and therefore, it should be tried without ceasing, to attain a broadening, deepening wisdom, so that the spirit may be perfected and lifted up into the true home and so that it may become One with The Creation.

“Thus, when man is honest and searches, he shall not know a perceived opinion and consequently have no judgment in advance. But the wise man is knowing and aware of the Law of the timeless river of the timeless change, and he therefore endeavors to adjust to the great course of happenings. For he recognizes the Laws of The Creation, and that the circles of existence have to be closed through the destinations of the Laws. Wherever life reveals itself, it is based upon the Law of the invisible secret which effects timeless change.

“One who disregards timeless and imperishable laws and truths and does not recognize them will have to suffer evil consequences. Lies and hatred will blind such a man and even entire peoples, and they shall rush into the abyss of their own destruction.

“A destructive mania will come over them, and among them the heroes will be those who are the greatest destroyers. Division will permeate the entire life of men, and when there is a split there is no longer a whole, or perfection. As long as there is incompleteness in life, the consequences will have to be carried by men, which are sickness, misery, injustice, need and fighting, strife and slavery, false cults and exploitation to the blood, and death.

“Thus man shall be aware and wake up. Only that which is timeless and imperishable is of substance, Truth and Wisdom, for thus say the Laws of The Creation.




“ADONAI” spoken by the One known by the names of Jesus, Sananda, Immanuel.

Happy New Year to each one of you!

Below is from pages 179-180 of the book And they called his name Immanuel by the Phoenix-Journal #02. Please understand that these literary works were written long before the political and social “correctness” of our time. Seek to understand the deeper meaning behind human dated language. It is not correct to impose on important past written material the evolution of human language. If you stumble on the word “man” for example, rather than today’s comprehension of “humanity,” you will miss the point.

It is stated on page 6 that the words of the Phoenix Journals cannot be copyrighted since these books are compilations of information already available on Earth.

“As man and all plants and all animals are one in Themselves, it is the Law of The Creation, so that this be so. If man believes everything is say, two, that is not so, for everything is ONE. What man believes to be “two” is only “One,” so that he may make everything that is two-one. Since the Spirit in man is part of The Creation, he is One with The Creation, consequently he is not two. Since the body is a part of spirit in a different form and matter, he is one with the spirit, consequently he cannot be two.

“It is that there is a Oneness, not a Duality (Twoness), in any other form. If it appears to man that there is a duality, he is a victim of deception, because he does not think logically and thinks according to human knowledge. If he, however, thinks in the knowledge of the Spirit, he finds the logic which is also in the Law. Only the thinking of man can be erroneous, but the Laws of The Creation cannot be erroneous. That is why it is said that everything emanates from a Oneness, and a duality is apparent only because man in his limited thinking cannot grasp it.

“Therefore, everything is a Oneness and everything emanating from it, and no duality whatsoever can be alive because this would voilate the Laws of The Creation. For only in his ignorance does man make a duality and thus violate the Laws of The Creation.

“But, if he directs everything into unity and makes everything into one, and when he then says to a mountain, “move away,” it will move away. Since everything is One in The Creation and in Its Laws, and in the creatures and in matter, it is without error.

“When a wise man says that there are always two of everything he means that they are one within themselves and one together. It is only according to appearance that they are two, for in Itself and also together it is always One. Further, since the “bad” is one in itself because it is also “good” in itself and also together, it is always only One. Since split, they are also one and a oneness, they are also unsplit one and a oneness, for that is the Law of The Creation. Consequently, it appears that there are two parts, which however, are one in itself, and are also one when unsplit.

“If this all seems redundant, please bear with me for this will eventually go forth to man in general and all are not perceiving and understanding as ye of the advanced souls.

“Further, and here we are going to get into trouble because of the “triune” perception – I will also explain the power of the “triune” but it is not as ye ones have been taught in this experience. If man maintains that the “threeness” also exists, then their spirit is confused by some kind of cult teaching (I always use the term cult as a faction or family grouping of types and beliefs), falsified in intent in teaching or wrong (incorrect) thinking. A unit is always made of two parts or portions, which are one in itself, but are only a twoness in appearance. Since man is a unit of two parts, and the spirit of man is a unit of two parts – both become one in itself and one together. The body cannot live without the spirit, and so conversely, too, for spirit and body are a unit despite the seeming twoness. The spirit lives according to the same Law, for in Itself it is two parts and one in each part, thus one in itself. – IT ALWAYS RETURNS TO THE UNIT OF ONE. TWO PARTS OF THE SPIRIT ARE WISDOM AND STRENGTH.

“Without wisdom of the spirit, its power cannot be utilized, and likewise, there can be no emerging of wisdom without the spiritual power. Therefore, there are always two things needed, which are one in itself; there is a unit in the oneness, but not the twoness.

“The Law says that man is a oneness within himself which consists of two parts that are equal, which in themselves are also a oneness, and also, when not separated, are a oneness. The two equal parts in man which each in itself constitutes a unit, are body and spirit. Therefore, when a man is being taught by the scribes that man lives in a threeness, this teaching is erroneous and falsified, for it is not according to the Laws of The Creation.” explained by Sananda, aka Jesus

Albert Einstein’s Advice

“A human being is part of a whole, called by us universe, a part limited in time and space.

He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.

This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us.

Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”

– Albert Einstein



Everything you think, say, and do originate from the Source of All experiencing AND learning wisdom and knowledge THROUGH YOUR HUMAN EXPERIENCES AND LIFE LESSONS, in your thoughts, words, and actions, and the results in every person, place, and thing around you. The Life Spirit of All is part and parcel of all living entities and will return unto Itself because Infinity has no time. ALL IS ONE.

Below is from pages 176-178 of the book And they called his name Immanuel by the Phoenix-Journal #02. Please understand that these literary works were written long before the political and social “correctness” of our time. Seek to understand the deeper meaning behind human dated language. It is not correct to impose on important past written material the evolution of human language. If you stumble on the word “man” for example, rather than today’s comprehension of “humanity,” you will miss the point.

Also, And they called his name Immanuel by the Phoenix-Journal #02, states on the opening publication information page, that these texts are deliberately not protected by copyright to get the best possible dissemination. It is stated on page 6 that the words of the Phoenix Journals cannot be copyrighted since these books are compilations of information already available on Earth.

“I, Immanuel, (and all those other labels), wish to speak of THE CREATION, for behold, The Creation is above man, above God, and above everything. But I am thy brother, dear friends.

“It would seem complete to the comprehension of man, but that is not so. Since The Creation is Spirit and lives, it too, has to perfect itself until infinity. But, since it is one with itself, it can perfect itself only through The Creation and the generation of new spirit. However, the newly generated spirit is part of The Creation itself, still ignorant, however, to the smallest degree. So then when a new spirit has been created, which is still ignorant to the smallest degree, it lives in the body of man and begins to learn. Please ponder these things after ye have read my entire explanation a time or two.

“The ignorant spirit appears to man as quite “simple-minded,” and he says that this person is “confused.” But he is not, for he is only ignorant and void of knowledge and wisdom. So this new spirit lives in man to gather knowledge.

“When this spirit goes into the “beyond,” it is no longer as ignorant as in the beginning. It comes back into the world and lives as man, but no longer as ignorant as its beginning. And again he teaches himself and gathers further knowledge and new wisdom, so he escapes from ignorance to an ever increasing degree. The time comes after many renewed lives and experiences than man says to this spirit, that he is normal and no longer “confused.” Now the real growth can begin for this is not the end of spirit and fulfillment, for, having become now “knowing,” he must seek out the “greatest” wisdom. This is in order that he may perfect himself to the point where he unfolds his creativity and will finally be one with The Creation, as was destined for him in the beginning. It is thus in simplicity, The Creation brought forth a new spirit and had It perfected by Itself in the human body, and the perfected spirit returns to The Creation and becomes one with It (The Creation). Thusly The Creation perfects Itself in Itself for within It is the knowledge and wisdom to enable It to do so.

“Verily I say to you, the time will come when The Creation will stop to create a new spirit and to broaden Itself. The Creation, too, needs rest, when It is sleeping and not creating, as in proper to everything alive. And, all is alive – ALL!

“As the human life has day and night and divides between work and rest, likewise The Creation has its time when it works and rests. Its periods, however are different from those of men, for its Laws are the Laws of Spirit. But, the Laws of men are the Laws of material life. The material life is limited, but the life of the Spirit goes on forever and knows no end or limits upon itself. However, The Creation is subject to the Laws of the Original Creation, which is the beginning of all Created by Itself. …

Christmas Origins ~ Customs ~ Traditions ~ Was Jesus Really Born on December 25?

“To be ignorant of the lives of the most celebrated men of antiquity is to continue in a state of childhood all our days.” Plutarch

The Christmas tree, the wreath, the mistletoe, the holly, the presents, the feasts and the parties, did they really originate with the birth of Jesus?


Most of today’s Christmas celebrations began as the pagan celebration of Saturnalia revolving around the harvest god Saturn, for providing people with abundant crops. Saturn’s feast day was celebrated on December 17. That celebration was so popular that in the days of Nimrod, the great hunter who set himself up in opposition to the God, decided to establish a celebration of the sun god, Mithras (Mithra) on December 25, the birthday of Mithra. Nimrod, and no other person, claimed that the god of the sun, would be celebrated on December 25. Then it was decided to have the celebration last for a week. It was a week of orgies, and anything goes – including all forms of debauchery with wild abandon, like thieving and murder, eating foods sacrificed to idols, and of course, child sacrifice. After his death, it was said that Mithra was Nimrod reincarnated, so that he would never die.

The myth of Santa Claus has many variations, including the Norse mythological god named Wodin, also known as Odin, who had a long white beard, in the land to the north called Vilhalla. There was also the Norse god Thor, a god of peasants and the common people. He was a jolly man with a roly-poly belly. Thor’s element was fire, and his color was red. These myths began in Iceland, with lots of fireplaces included in the myths. Thor rode in a chariot pulled by two white goats named Cracker and Gnasher. Thor successfully fought ice and snow giants and became known as the yule-god.

Then there was the real Nicholas, a teenage orphan who inherited wealth from his rich parents, and who was later termed a saint by the Catholic Church due to his secret generosity to the poorest people of his time. Nicholas only entered the Christmas story after the third century, after the birth of Jesus. Nicholas was one of the bishops who attended the Council of Nicaea in the year 325 A.D.

St. Nicholas is best remembered as the bishop who helped out a poor family with three daughters. They were so poor that they did not have dowries to get married. The night before the first daughter was to be sold as a slave, she had washed her stockings and left them in front of the fireplace to dry. In the morning she found a bag with gold in it. The same thing happened with the second daughter on the next night, and the third daughter on the night after that. They discovered it was Nicholas who saved them from being sold into slavery. He did not believe that people should own people. From then on, he was called St. Nicholas, helper of the poor and of children.

Another famous story, about St. Nicholas as told in my book, MYSTERY OF THE STURBRIDGE KEYS, occurs at the Christmas By Candlelight celebration which takes place each year in real time at Old Sturbridge Village in Sturbridge, Massachusetts each Christmas season. In this chapter, Santa Claus is relating this particular real-life story of St. Nicholas:

“Here is another quick story of how St. Nicholas helped a child. The oldest story of St. Nicholas did not become known until well after his death. In the town of Myra, which today is Anatalya in a Province of Turkey, the townspeople were celebrating the Feast of St. Nicholas, December 6. All of a sudden, a band of Arab pirates from Crete, the largest of the Greek islands, came into the district, stealing treasures from the Church of St. Nicholas, to take as booty. As they were leaving, they kidnapped a young boy named Basilios, and brought him to their king to make him a slave.

“The Arab king chose Basilios to be his personal cupbearer because he did not know the language and would not know what the ruler was saying to those around him. Basilios did this job for a whole year, while his mother grieved for him and missed him very much, especially since he was her only child. As the next Feast of St. Nicholas Day came, the mother did not celebrate it since it was a day of mourning for her. Instead, she offered prayers for the safety and return of her son….

“Meanwhile, as Basilios was doing what he had been doing every day that year, serving the king, he was suddenly whisked away. St. Nicholas appeared to him, blessed him, and brought him back to his home in Myra. He appeared before his parents, still holding the king’s gold cup. Sailors took this story across the seas to other lands. This is how St. Nicholas also came to be known as the patron saint of sailors.”

How far back does the Christmas tree tradition go?

Do we have any biblical references?


Jeremiah 10:3 reads, “Their ways are futile and foolish. They cut down a tree and carve an idol and decorate it with gold and silver and fasten it securely in place with hammer and nails, so that it won’t fall over, and there stands their god like a helpless scarecrow in a garden! It cannot speak, and it must be carried, for it cannot walk. Don’t be afraid of such a god for it can neither harm nor help, nor do any good.”

The Christmas tree tradition goes back to the days of Nimrod and Ishtar. It is one of the customs begun at that time as part of the festivals of the harvest god, Saturn and the sun god, Mithras. Remember, Nimrod was mad at God for sending the flood and set himself up in opposition to God. The Christmas tree is one of the customs he began to have people celebrate something other than anything to do with God.

Santa Claus and his helpers have their mythical stories. Santa is also known as Sinterklass, Santeclaus, and Christkind, and in Germany, had not only elves, but also a weird, mysterious sidekick who people have given many names to, like, Knecht Ruprecht, and Black Peter. In the Middle Ages, Knecht Ruprecht appeared along with St. Nicholas. But while St. Nicholas was known to give presents like bags of candy, chocolate, gingerbread, peanuts and mandarin oranges to the children whose behavior was good on St. Nicholas Day, which was on December 6; Knecht Ruprecht would give switches and coal to children whose behavior was bad. Knecht Ruprecht wore either a brown or black robe, or fur. He also had a long beard and carried a bag of ashes. Like St. Nicholas, he also rode a white horse. Knecht Ruprecht is also connected in German Folklore with Black Peter, because of the soot that covered him from his sliding down chimneys. Black Peter was a lot like the mythical house spirits and elves who were known to punish the misdeed of children.

This story is said to have circulated so parents could maintain order in their homes and in society. These little dark, impish characters were also known as Pelznickle, Ru-Klas, Swarthy, Dark One, Dark Helper, Hans Trapp, Krampus, Grampus, Zwarte Piets, Furry Nicholas, Rough Nicholas, and Julbuk.

Some Christian sects of the 1830s are said to have known him as a demon, evil one, the devil and Satan.

Back when Constantine ruled the Roman Empire, at the end of his life, he became Christian and wanted to rule the world. He thought this would be best accomplished by using religion, namely Christianity. To sway people over to Christianity, since the pagan Saturnalia was so popular as well as most of the Mithra celebrations, Constantine decided to put the birth of the Son of God, Jesus Christ, on the birth of the sun god, Mithra. In that light, every time we celebrate today’s Christmas holiday, we are still honoring a pagan god on his feast day.

What is wrong with that?

Stephen is the first martyr of the Christian faith, stoned to death on December 26. The apostle Paul was in complete agreement with the stoning of Stephen prior to Paul’s conversion when Jesus Christ, appeared to him post-resurrection on the road to Damascus. Paul was trained as a Pharisee as his father had been.

Why was Stephen martyred?

Stephen preached against the pagan Saturnalia and Mithra rituals, including orgies, breaking the Ten Commandments, eating foods sacrificed to idols and for speaking against child sacrifice on December 25. These rituals were to be celebrated under penalty of death. If anyone did not offer your first born to be burned to death at the temple, then they also got to be burned to death at the temple. They thought this supreme sacrifice would bring them enlightenment. Fear was a tremendous motivating force, as some still use it today.

Religious, social, and political cults are born from those wishing to gain or retain power, fame, and fortune, both in those days as well as in modern time. Many say they are really celebrating the birth of Jesus. If that were true, they would celebrate when Jesus was actually born, which would be when the shepherds were still able to be out in the fields, watching their flocks by night. This means Jesus was born between September and October, when it was still warm enough to do that. Also, the census of the entire world, yet to be proven that it took place, would not have taken place at the time of year when the roads would have been tough to travel laden with ice and snow. Mary and Joseph traveled on foot, with Mary riding on a donkey, to Bethlehem, to the city of David to register, not possible on December 25.

It was decided to put Christmas on the feast of Mithra’s birthday and include it in the Saturnalia revelries to win over the people who refused to give up their much-loved Saturnalia festival.

It is good to have more information on where our Christmas customs and traditions come from so we can be clear on what we choose to celebrate, or not, and why.

Old Souls ~ New Souls ~ Which Are You?

Just like the body tells on itself to a massage therapist, Souls tell on themselves by the lives they live.

Have you ever wondered if you are an Old Soul or a New Soul, an Old Spirit or a New Spirit?

Do you know if you are an Old Soul/Spirit, or has someone else told you that you are an Old Soul/Spirit?

I am purposefully avoiding the human intelligence dissection humanity has carved out by making distinctions between the human Soul and the human Spirit, which is based upon limited human understanding. For considerations in this post, I am referring to the mind, body, and soul of each individual as one Spark of Life of Eternal Universal Life Force Energy (from here on called Energy with a capital E), otherwise known as The Creation, and Almighty God.

If you happen to be an agnostic or atheist, the principles of Energy still work.

Personality traits shine a light on where you are at in your Soul Journey. You may get an inkling that you wish you had a better instruction manual to follow through life. How are you supposed to know?

Others of us could have written the roadmap to follow, having learned from past lessons from other lifetimes, even if past lives are not remembered. These people just know that they know.

Jesus never taught against reincarnation. There are several examples, including the Transfiguration, and when Jesus asked his apostles who they thought he was. They also thought John and Baptist was Elijah. Jesus never corrected them.

It is the consciousness of our Soul that lives on after physical death. Consciousness is not physical. It is metaphysical, Soul Energy that is constantly vibrating. It is part of the Energy that animates you today.

But there is a major difference between the ego, which thinks it knows everything all the time, and the actual truth that a person is an authentic Old Soul. YOU ARE ENERGY experiencing Itself.

Old Souls carry within themselves the rich comprehension treasury of peace, kindness, generosity, joy, humility, consideration, gentleness, magnanimity, truthfulness, honesty, valor, courage, and electromagnetism, among other noble qualities.

New Souls mirror only that which they have learned thus far. It does not matter if this Soul has had a million lifetimes to perfect itself. If this Soul has not chosen to progress beyond the infant Soul stage (self-centeredness, ego-based decisions, lack of consideration for others) throughout all other lifetimes (remember, we each have free will), then at its next incarnation, it will begin and begin again reaping what it has sown until this Soul finally decides to educate itself. This Soul will remain an ignorant New Soul until it gets bored with the merry-go-round of self-delusion, self-glorification, and self-misery, all the same lowest vibrational frequency of life.

Cults and those attracted to fear-based thinking match the low vibrational frequency found within New Souls. They keep beating the drum of the fear of loss, fear there won’t be enough, fear of standing in their own power that sabotages them, and fear of retaliation if they do. Fear is their strongest motivating force.

A baby at any ages will throw a temper tantrum, scream and cry, just to get its own way. It doesn’t know what else to do. Low impulse control and lack of education is the motivating force behind New Souls.

Do you see repeating situations in your life, such as in relationships, employment, self-esteem, and/or floundering belief systems? This is a tip to you that you can improve your life by maturely addressing the stumbling block before you, instead of attempting to take the easy road out of its repetitive loop.

Religions and politics, among other categories, can also get stuck in repetitive loops that are self-serving, since they are all made up of human beings. Not all involved seek to do what is best for everyone.

There is an Energy that supersedes the Celestial and Nature Kingdoms and everything they contain. (The Celestial Kingdom is part of the Nature Kingdom for the understanding and purpose of this post). This Energy intricately pervades all cells within all DNA structures, even seemingly inanimate ones. It even exists in the deepest, darkest fathoms under the ocean where fish have been found to exhibit their own luminescence, far beyond the reach of the sun’s rays.

The Creation is Living Spirit manifest in everything, including you and me. This Living Spirit is the Eternal Soul Energy as Living Pulse, Breath, Heartbeat, and Animation experiencing through the voids, ethereal, and physical density. There is not one iota held within all universes that is missing this same Energy.

Initially, Energy simply was, not knowing anything beyond Itself. You might even call this Energy ignorant of what it did not know. It was whole in Its completeness. But It only knew what It knew, Itself.

To this way of thinking, Energy was a New Soul, prior to Its secondary status, educating Itself through self-discovery in revealed experience in everything post the Big Bang era, to use the scientific jargon to understand the apparently unexplainable. Energy experience past the ethereal pre-antediluvian times of Lemuria and Atlantis are currently being discovered on the ocean floor.

Please follow along with the idea that many of us call the same things of which I speak in other terms. Recognize that this is merely semantics, different words explaining the same thing. Rather than get hung up on words you might judge to be inaccurate, allow yourself to better understand.

You and I are the only way Energy gets to experience Itself amid myriad other ways of inanimate expression.

Notice any world leader at any point in human history and you can tell by what is important to them, whether they are an Old Soul or a New Soul.

Are they moved by genuine Love of everyone, or only a select relatively few of their lower energetic vibrational frequency?

Are they humanitarians, or are they greedy, selfish, and self-absorbed?

Do they promote peace or war?

Do they get their kicks out of spawning violence?

They are telling on themselves.

World leaders and everyone else tell on themselves by the things they value. Those with relatively New Souls have not yet learned to go beyond themselves. They are stuck in a spiritual playpen. It is a life lesson they will have to keep repeating until the lessons of Eternal Universal Light Force Energy, which Sparks as Light within the Soul, cauterizes their hearts, minds, voices, and thereby their Souls. This is known as the purification of the soul.

The purpose of the Soul is to evolve into perfection, the same perfection Jesus spoke of in Matthew 5:48 to be perfect as our Heavenly Father (Eternal Universal Life Force Energy) is perfect. This is our mission, our dharma in this and every other lifetime in which we incarnate. In the end, the human goal is to merge our Spark of Energy with the Eternal Universal Light Force Energy.

Human beings are animated by this same Energy, which is moved, transferred to us by Light, and is the way Energy travels, infusing our Souls with the Living Light Spark of powerful Eternal Universal Chi, Prana, Qi, however you can comprehend Eternal Universal Life Force Energy to be.

This Energy has a weight. AT THE EXACT MOMENT OF DEATH, A PERSON RELEASES 3/4 OF AN OUNCE OF BODY WEIGHT, according to Dr. Duncan MacDougall from Haverhill, Massachusetts in 1901.

Dr. Duncan wished to scientifically determine if a Soul had weight and identified six patients in nursing homes whose deaths were imminent. Four were suffering from tuberculosis, one from diabetes, and one from unspecified causes. MacDougall specifically chose people who were suffering from conditions that caused physical exhaustion, as he needed the patients to remain still when they died to measure them accurately. When the patients looked like they were close to death, their entire bed was placed on an industrial sized scale that was sensitive within two tenths of an ounce (5.6 grams). There was no logical reason for this. Dr. MacDougall concluded that it was the weight of the soul leaving the body.

From my studies, the findings of Dr. Duncan’s works were challenged due to the small sample of patients. But this does not negate the truth of his work.

Energy cannot simply vanish, it can only be transmuted, changed into another reality. Science has taught us that energy cannot be created nor destroyed but only transformed. This can be found in the Laws of Thermodynamics.

Please excuse the double negatives with this statement which best states that your life is not nothing. You matter. You have always mattered.

Below you will find attributes of the Light of God as Spirit ALIVE in all Souls:

John 4:24
“God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

Know yourself. Recognize the Spirit of Life and Light of your Soul as a Spark of Energy manifested within you every day. You are worthy. Know this truth. You are worth more than you know unless you do acknowledge, with humility, this grand I AM Presence WITHIN your Soul, as Jesus told all of us in Luke 17:20-21:

Yours are the only hands with which Energy has to experience in this life. This ancient Greek aphorism expresses more truth than once thought.

Psalm 139:7
Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?

2 Corinthians 3:17-18
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.

Acts 17:24
The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands … YOU ARE GOD’S TEMPLE

Arousing the Sleeping Soul Meditation ~ Awakening the Spark of Your Eternal Universal Life Force Energy


Reclaim your personal power, your Eternal Spark of God’s gift to you. There is no one else on Earth like you. You may be in complete agreement with this fact. You may not have anyone in your life to reflect the reality of this fact back to you. Either way, many others have told you, in person, in books, in songs, and in experience that you are pure gift of Eternal Universal Life Force Energy upon the Earth at this moment in time. Now I am telling you this same message. You are here for a reason.

If you choose, you can listen to this Tibetan inspirational music for the rest of this meditation.

In the journey of our lives, sometimes we hand over our personal power, not fully conscious that we have been indoctrinated since childhood, either into belief systems not really of our own choosing, or into the false concept that there is no Eternal Universal Life Force Energy.

In the process of our education, and consciously seeking for truth and looking under every religious rock, we feel the deep stirrings of the Spirit beginning to rise. Yet, often as soon as this comes to be, some voice appearing to know better comes along only to make sure you follow certain human steps, in a particular kind of caste system, with a human hierarchy at the helm. Beware of these.

In this meditation, notice who it is that promotes fear as the basis for particular social, political, or religious teachings, who you may associate with and those who you may not for fear of retaliation, or exclusion.

Reclaim your Spirit. Reclaim your Eternal Universal Life Force Energy which you may feel more comfortable calling Chi, Prana, Qi, or a host of other words all meaning the exact same thing. You are worthy. This is your gift from the Eternal Universal Life Force Energy Itself.

Eternal Universal Life Force Energy has no limits. This is the most complete Form of Energy in All Creation. Various scientific, medical, and technological human advancements have managed to tap into a minute portion of the vast expanse in the reflecting brilliance and capability from prayer to space travel. Yet it is human awareness of something greater that minds of humanity tap into.

Take this moment to quiet thoughts, worries, schedules, and all other distractions. Be one with this music of the Soul, connecting to the Author of Love, Kindness, Generosity, Forgiveness, and every other noble attribute of Eternal Universal Life Force Energy. There is no agenda here.

This meditation is a melding of your precious Spark of your Soul with the Splendid and Magnificent Light Beyond Measure. All is One.

Every person you meet has their own Spirit, their own Soul. This is the marvel of marvels Jesus talks about at the generation of human life; that human beings can not only replicate the physical body, but can pass on the Eternal Universal Life Force Energy of the Soul, the Spark of Living Spirit in each individual, that is the SAME Spark of Eternal Universal Life Force Energy as a way to experience through you and through me.

You are the Earthen Vessel of your Precious Portion of Eternal Universal Life Force Energy in the world today.

This is the miracle of miracles. YOU ARE A MIRACLE of Eternal Universal Life Force Energy which fuels your every thought, word, and action. You have free will to decide how best to live your life. You are in charge of you, no religion, politics, business, nor anything else outside of you. You determine your best path forward. You will make mistakes. You will get up and will try again.

Now is the time to make corrections to your perceptions and understandings. You were not born a sinner before you took your first breath on this beautiful planet. You were not born a sinner after you took your first breath here on Earth. Jesus came to Earth to tell you past religions got it all wrong. The reason Jesus was crucified was because he taught of the Light of the Soul WITHIN you, with no need of human laws many religions promoted. Religious authorities could not let the words of Jesus stand, otherwise they would lose all power, fame, and fortune. This is a truth that is again resurfacing for your benefit.

Rather, recognize the false truths and deceptions others have self-promoted so they gain that same power, fame, and fortune at your expense. If you have found yourself as a pawn in someone else’s cult mentality, now is the time to free yourself. You can do this. Follow your own conscience after meditation on this fact.

How do you regain the Light WITHIN you which someone else may have been trying to snuff out?

The first solution to tell someone you trust outside of the circle of social, religious, and/or political cults. Yes, there is a way out. Take a deep breath and never give up. You are in charge of your Soul and your Spirit, as well as your Body and your Mind. Stop rehashing the problems in your mind. That solves nothing.

Take another deep breath. Breathe in Light and Love without conditions, Love without judgment. We can be so harsh with ourselves. If we could have done better, we would have done better. Be easy and gentle with yourself. If we had known what was going to happen before it did, we would have made other choices.

This life is about the choices we make. It is all about perfecting your Soul. Religions like to call these mistakes sins. It is human to make mistakes. This is how we learn. This is how we train our Souls and our Spirits to be filled with more Peace, more Joy, and more Love. We do not know the outcome of certain actions until we see the interplay with other people, or other situations. Being harsh in judgments against yourself does not negate what happened, nor does it make anything better.

Begin, or begin again, right where you are. Take another deep breath. Forgive yourself. Forgive others. Make sure you are safe in Mind, Body, Spirit, and Soul. You are a magnificent Spark of Eternal Universal Life Force Energy experiencing in this plane of existence. You are pure gift.

God Bless Everyone Everywhere

Your Light is mirrored by your personal energy, aura, voice, thoughts, inspiration, ideas, knowing, kindness, forgiveness, honesty, valor, magnanimity, generosity, hope, faith in your ability to believe in the precious gift of your life, and love beyond measure.

Presents make holidays festive. Presents help those in need. Presents show our care and concern for others. Presents let others know they are not alone.

There will also be dark and Light. This is the season to be the Light you wish to shine in your corner of the world.


Have You Ever Been Wrong About Something You Thought Was Right?

I do not want to hear anything other than what I already know. I have nothing more to learn.

It is Christmas time. It is the nostalgic time when humanity fondly reminisces about the birth of Jesus, with the bright star, singing angels, and wise men. After all, isn’t this all we need to know?

Jesus has said many things that religions have clung to since before the bible was written. He tried telling humanity the truth of why he came. It is interesting to know what Jesus said and did not say. But those indoctrinated in human belief systems could not hear with understanding when they either thought they already knew what he meant based on their previous indoctrination, thought they knew what he meant based on their own lived experience, or thought they knew he was out of his mind based on their vast human intelligence of science, medicine, and technology available down through the ages.

“I have come to teach you something new. Please listen, hear, and understand.”

Are you ready to hear more than you have been told, by those who answered their calling to their belief system brand, but who were misinformed by human limitation?

Please know there is more to know. It is very empowering. It is the enlightenment of each individual Spirit learning and growing into perfection, lifetime after lifetime until you achieve your own ascension just as Jesus did his.

Jesus taught this. It is also foreshadowed in Isaiah where we read, “Go and tell this people, ‘Keep on hearing, but do not understand; keep on seeing, but do not perceive.” Isaiah 6:9, written by Isaiah in 732 BC. in Jerusalem.

Who was Isaiah speaking to?

Isaiah was speaking to ALL people of ALL religions. They all had missed the mark since the beginning of communication, all the various cultures and knowledge of the Old Ways, including the Jewish ideology. Isaiah tells them that even they were not understanding what Eternal Universal Life Force Energy, also known as The Creation, had in store for humanity.

It was more than the bloodshed and the wars with the prize of earthly power, fame, and fortune. While they all thought they knew better, there was still more to know.

Then comes Christmas, the birth of Jesus Christ, who came to impart the knowledge that the human Spirit perfects with each lifetime gained through the knowledge of each human life. Nowhere in the bible will you read the humanly contrived doctrine of the “Trinity,” which is a yesteryear belief born into the Christian story at the birth of Jesus. Jesus never said he was God, part of the “Trinity.”

The people had been indoctrinated in worshiping trinities since the “Prehistoric Trinities,” such as goddess worship, which was revered for over 100,000 years, honoring the Virgin, Mother, and Crone, according to Gimbutas, Marija. The Civilization of the Goddess, ed. Joan Marler. San Francisco: Harper San Francisco, 1991.

The number three is key in honoring many other trinities, dating back to the Upper Paleolithic era from 30,000-8,000 BCE, making the “Trinity” adopted by Judaism, Christianity, and Islam familiar.

Jesus came to denounce these false teachings. He even told us in the New Testament, in Luke 8:10; John 8:43; Mark 4:12; and Matthew 13:14; that we will all hear and see, yet lack the understanding he came to teach, because our previous indoctrination into thinking that we were right, when we had our “facts” wrong would be the stumbling block.

But Jesus also said never to give up seeking, searching with open hearts, in order that we find that one priceless pearl of faith. This can happen, but only if we allow the possibility that perhaps we do not know all there is to know. It is even more cumbersome when we discover that we have been lied to by the very ones in whom we put our faith to guide us.

Jesus continues to teach us to this very day. But today’s believers are just as reticent to receiving new and accurate information just as humanity was in his time.

Jesus is telling humanity today that we have been duped. The apostles were duped by the leaven of the Pharisees. Modern humanity is duped by the upper echelons of political structures and religions around the world.

How many people today are teaching that the Light of God is WITHIN you?

How many people tell you that you are NOT a sinner, but are learning life lessons so you can improve yourself?

How many people teach what Jesus taught in John 14:12, that you will be able to do the works, miracles, healings, that he did, AND EVEN MORE BESIDES?

Today Jesus says, “I am not the son of the spiritual ruler of the three human races, and therefore not the son of God.” And they called him Immanuel ISBN 978-3-7497-1759-0

Remember, the ARCHANGEL GABRIEL appears to Mary to announce to her that the designs of the Eternal Universal Life Force Energy, The Creation of All, intends that Jesus, the long-awaited Christ be born unto her through the interaction of Gabriel. Mary consents.

It makes a nice Christmas story to believe with all our hearts this famous story handed down through the ages, but there is more for you to know. Not everyone individually had wrong intentions, they were simply misguided by blinded religious leaders who did not know better themselves. Jesus sees all.

Jesus also sees that now is the time for the holes left behind in numerous proselytism efforts to be straightened out, since his message has been thwarted.

Remember, Peter was so stuck in his own indoctrination into the thinking of the Pharisees that Peter tried to stop Jesus, as if that were possible, from the suffering and crucifixion that awaited Jesus. Peter also heard but could not understand the other reasons Jesus said were his mission. Peter could only share what he thought he knew, seeding two thousand years of misinformation.

What was the response of Jesus?

“‘Get away from me, Satan. You are an annoyance, for you are not thinking in spiritual reasoning, but in human thought and desire. Simon Peter, you make me angry and show your ignorant thinking.

“‘Verily, I say to you this day, because of your ignorance the world will shed much blood, because you will falsify my teaching and spread it among the people, and it will become more and more twisted and inverted. You will be guilty of the deaths of many peoples, and of the origin of a false name for me, and of the evil insult of calling me the Son of God, and that God is The Creation Itself, for it shall come to pass as I speak it.

“‘But you are still under the grace of my long-suffering patience, and you can still improve your ignorance by some measures, but I am remaining in great annoyance with you, brother.’

” And then Immanuel said to his disciples, ‘If someone wants to follow my teaching, he should take the burden of seeking the truth, of realization and of understanding upon himself. But man will surely not do so for man is lazy and careless, he will believe that which anyone speaks unto him. It will be those who live their lives in truth and knowledge who will be victorious, but he who lives his life in untruth and ignorance, will lose.” And they called him Immanuel ISBN 978-3-7497-1759-0

This season is a time of introspection. Take a moment beyond the eyes of others, to assess if you are loving without judgment. The way we judge others is the way we will be judged. Not one of us is perfect.

There but for the grace of God go I.

Like I told you in Luke 17:20-21, The Kingdom of God is WITHIN you. Work on forming your Spirit, choose light over dark inspiration. Your life is the reflection of your heart and Eternal Spirit. Work toward your ascension, just as I showed you.


Phoenix Rising from the Religious Ashes Within Spiritually Scorched Humankind

“I did not come forth to bring peace, but rather to bring the sword of truth and knowledge of the power of the spirit which dwells within man.” Jesus

“The highest commandment in the Law of The Creation is: Achieve the wisdom of knowledge inasmuch as this will enable you to wisely follow the Laws of Creation.” Jesus

Do you follow the Laws of Humankind’s religions or the Laws of The Creation?

I ask this question because there are hundreds of religions all claiming to be THE ONE TRUE RELIGION, yet all of which have human origins while simultaneously claiming that their particular denomination has a “divine” origin.

This is a time-warp interplay on semantics. Wars have been fought and people have been killed, like with the Roman Catholic Crusades, and other holy wars to name a few.

I write about Eternal Universal Life Force Energy. The Phoenix Foundation uses the term The Creation to describe this same Infinite Energy. Numerous others, in their futile attempts to define the undefinable, use words such as: Re/Ra (Akkadian/Sumerian/Egyptian God), Aton (Ancient Egyptian Disk of the Sun God – also known as: Aten, Atonu, Itn, and Pharaoh Akhenaten), Allah (is the Arabic word for the God of Islam, and seen as the Eternal Creator and Sustainer of the Universe), Brahma (Hindu God of Creation), Vishnu (God of Preservation), Shiva (God of Destruction), Krishna (God of Love and Compassion), Saraswati (Goddess of Knowledge), Lakshmi (Goddess of Prosperity, Domesticity, Beauty, and Purity), Parvati (Divine Mother).

Common sense notes that these are all qualities of the same Source of Infinite Energy which is best understood with the human mind as personifying admirable traits all wish their “God” to have.

On the other hand, Buddha is not a god. The word Buddha means “enlightened.”

Are all these religions all right?

Are they all wrong?

Confusion has abounded from the start of human history, for power, fame, and fortune. Religions have been hijacked by spirits that are not their own. We wonder how things can go so wrong in families, countries, politics, jobs, the economy, and on and on.

As for the words of Jesus, most religions have spun the words of Jesus Christ of Nazareth to infer other meanings, while choosing to ignore other mandates of Jesus. One such example are the words of Jesus in Matthew 23:9, where Jesus says, “And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,” for you have one Father, and he is in heaven.”

But the word merry-go-round spins with explanations as to why it is alright to do the very thing Jesus asked us not to do. There are countless contradictions like this. Every religion on Earth has these manipulated doctrines which point to their version of the bible, which has also been manipulated from the beginning, prior to Enoch, Abraham, and Moses.

Book banning, book burning, censorship, and excommunication are well-known control freak methods to keep the spiritual sheep in line. But once you allow yourself to push past your eternal questions, you eventually do get to the bottom of things.

There is more that Jesus taught, things that have been buried in the Earth for safe keeping. Now is the time, if Jesus is your “thing,” if you claim to want to celebrate why he came here in the first place, to read the other 18 years of the life of Jesus, not just his first 12 years, and his last 3 years.

Jesus is a historical person, whether or not you believe him to be divine or not. The very separation of time as we know it, between BC. and AD, now currently known as CE, occurs to the times in history that are BEFORE THE LIFE OF JESUS, and AFTER THE LIFE OF JESUS.

A good Christmas present this year, to learn more about Jesus, is the book, And they called his name Immanuel, subtitled I am Sananda. ISBN 978-3-7497- 1759-0.

A very enlightening book which I highly recommend is the three-book volume of The Books of Enoch published along with extensive commentary on these three books, the Fallen Angels, the Calendar of Enoch, and Daniel’s Prophecy, including The Book of Fallen Angels, The Watchers, and The Origins of Evil: With Expanded Commentary on Enoch, Angels, Prophecies, and Calendars in the Sacred Texts.

I also suggest reading The Nag Hammadi Scriptures seen below.

What Others Say About You Is Absolutely None of Your Business

Have you ever said, “You made me …. think, say, or do something?”

Have you ever blamed someone for the way you feel?

Have you blamed the other guy for getting fired, getting in trouble, or anything else?

This is a lesson in personal character development. It’s not the other guy’s fault. It is a lesson in maturity. It is one of those things that will keep repeating until the lesson is learned.

Using your emotions, words, and actions to try to get other people to respond to you in a certain way is called emotional blackmail.

It takes personal integrity to own up to our own shortcomings, mistakes, lies, and bad decisions. Everyone makes mistakes in life. Not one of us is perfect. This is how people of all ages learn. No matter how old you are, you are never too old to learn something new, a better way.

Also, other people do not have to walk on broken eggshells to be around you in order not to “make” you feel a certain way. You do not have to own any dark or negative feeling unless you want to feel that way. Choosing to stay in a negative emotional space is called wallowing and serves no healthy purpose. Others cannot make you feel anything that you do not want to feel. It is time to be honest with ourselves and why we are choosing to feel a particular way.

Everyone has the right and ability to choose to feel good. Those who are dealing with negative peer pressure at any age would do well to know that it is possible to remove your physical self from situations that are unhealthy. Everyone has the ability to stop reading malicious gossip and walk away from gossip circles where those who think they are popular prove that they are not. Those who gossip about others show their own emotional bankruptcy. Just because someone else chooses to use negative speech does not make it true. You already know this.

It is not the case that you have to manipulate outer circumstances to make yourself feel a certain way. It’s not about controlling others or circumstances at all. It is about realizing that you are in control of yourself. It feels good to finally realize that you are in control of you, no one else.

Sometimes, people think they have to justify negative feelings that come their way, almost feeling the need to fuel the fire of misunderstandings and hurts that sparked them as a way of “being true to themselves.” This is a mistake. It turns a small flame of hurt into a raging bonfire that is hard to put out. It’s a pity party, a self-sabotage trap that does not need to happen. This is emotional quicksand. Stop thinking this way as soon as you recognize it. Yes, you can.

If this happens to you, once you realize this is happening, it is easy to simply acknowledge that feeling, and in the next moment decide to think a better, happier thought. We are all in charge of our own thoughts. Our thoughts do not remain in our heads unless we feed them with our attention and emotions.

It is simply a matter of DECIDING to think in a new and healthier way. It is your DECISION to invest more in your own healing and well-being and in what others think, say, and do. It is a DECISION you DECIDE TO MAKE THAT MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD.


This Light is inside you, just as it is in all living things. This Light is your Essence, your personal Life Force, which no one can steal away from you. It belongs to you alone. This is a Bright, White, Eternal Universal Life Force Energy that pulses through every fiber of your DNA. It is not dependent on your viewpoint, opinion, or understanding. It is your own Chi, Prana, Qi, otherwise known as Eternal Universal Life Force Energy. It is this same Energy that radiates through every tree, leaf, and bird. It animates everything. No other person has more of it than you.

It’s time to be kinder to yourself, to forgive yourself, and forgive others. You do not need to punish yourself for the misunderstandings of others, nor for your own misunderstandings. Take a new breath of fresh air.

You are in charge of you, no one else. Your happiness does not rest on others understanding. Your happiness rests on your understanding of yourself, of you being true to yourself.

It also takes strength of character, to take a deep breath of compassion for others. Having this compassion is called grace.

Grace is the ability to let someone “off the hook,” so to speak, because they simply have no frame of reference for your feelings due to their own lack of experience, especially if you do not explain how you are feeling to them. Grace is treating someone with the same dignity with which you also want to be treated.

God Bless Everyone Everywhere.

Human Beings Are God’s Temple ~ The Power and Knowledge of the Spirit Can Heal the Depravity and Sickness of Humanity

The Power and Knowledge of the Spirit is the ONLY thing that can help our depraved and sick humanity, as well as the world to heal.

The Universal Dark Forces with which humanity deals everyday are not those of the any country’s far-right extremists, nor far-left woke humans, nor that of any government nor religion, nor the agenda of any one individual nor group. These Universal Dark Energies were birthed at The Creation of All, however science wishes to classify it.

This is more than any individual or country wishing to restore yesteryears Peter the Great’s Empire, the resurgent awakening of Antebellum America, gun-toting liberties BEFORE they had to turn their guns in to the sheriff prior to going into town, and as is documented in every bible, when the Fallen Angels fornicated with the beautiful women of Genesis 6. Nephilim children, giants, human flesh-eating beings, as well as “men of renown” were born to them.

The bible also speaks of the war in Heaven in Revelation 12:9, where forces that did not wish to go along with the plan of The Creation, that of assisting human beings in realizing their own God-given Spirits, were cast out of Heaven by Archangel Michael and his army of angels. These strong dark Eternal Universal Celestial Forces were not allowed to return to Heaven.

While the worldwide account of a global flood mentioned in numerous histories across the globe may have done away with their physical bodies, their mental, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual bodies could not return to Heaven, according to bible accounts.

Today, all civilizations have traditions that are, for example, the same stories with various god and goddess names, all portraying the same reality through Akkadian, Sumerian, Nordic, Greek, Roman, Myan, Aztec, Native American, and many other cultures. These all stem from the same reality of heavenly beings coming to Earth.

The Science Fiction channel on TV uses a tag line that could not be more correct, “We are not alone. We have never been alone.”

Religious people get upset at some minds understanding this same reality as science fiction, as if it were truly fiction. Science Fiction buffs appear to get indignant at the term angels over aliens.

I ask, “Is God terrestrial?”

There is more to The Creation than expounded on in the bible, which does not include all other Creation accounts, many call myths. Myth or reality, how it all began, or continues in this manifestation of Eternity, is how it “began” or “manifested” as a drop into time from the Eternal Universal Life Force Energy, also known as God, or The Creation.

Since we human beings were getting it so wrong, influenced by the Eternal Universal Dark Celestial Beings, Immanuel was sent to us in the person of Jesus Christ, to teach us all how to realize the Light WITHIN the Soul, the Spirit which is the thing that keep all human beings alive. Without this Spark of the Divine Spirit WITHIN us, as Luke 17:20-21 tells us in the words of Jesus, we are lifeless and dead, at least the physical body is dead. So, it is not the body that wins out in the end. It is your Eternal Universal Life Force (Chi-Prana-Qi) Energy.

All bibles, including the New King James Version, is correcting the word “among” to “within” as was originally written in Luke 17:20-21. Even the footnote to all bibles notes the original word “within.”

The name of Jesus was given by the Celestial Being named Gabriel. However, it has become known that Jesus is also known by the name of Sananda, aka Esu Jesus Sananda. A wonderful book explaining this, and simplifying his mission on Earth, as mentioned in a previous post, is And They called his name Immanuel, by the Phoenix-Journal. This book is also sub-titled I am Sananda. ISBN 978-3-7497-1759-0

There were 30 archeologists working in Chichen Itza, Yucatan June 1, 1961, when Sananda appeared in visible form and reiterated and clarified His teaching for the good of humanity.

The point of this post is to remind everyone during these weeks prior to the celebration of the birth of Jesus, what Jesus, not particular denominations of religions, but what Jesus actually taught.

Jesus taught about these Universal Dark Energies and how to protect ourselves with the Light of the Spirit WITHIN each one of us, regardless of race, color, creed or any other human delineation. There is the Light of the Spirit, the Light of the Soul, the Light of Life, the Light of Love that surpasses all understanding. 1 Corinthians 13:13 confirms how to heal every individual and every country in the world: “In the end there are three things that last: faith, hope, and love; and the greatest of these is love.”

What You Think About You Bring About

Have you ever felt that you were a victim of your situation, or your thoughts?

Knowing how to improve your mood, your situation, and the entire world is a choice each of us makes every day.

Negativity, resentment, anger, and revenge, like all other bad habits, can be changed in the blink of an eye, within your own head. Deciding to follow a less familiar course of thoughts and actions is what holds most of us back, like a refusal to change as a badge of honor.

Some people think they have no choice, no choice to stop being negative, resentful, or angry. In fact, some people feel justified by choosing these emotions. After all, they just appear out of nowhere, right? Situations happen to make them feel this way, right?


This is like driving to the faraway place you have driven to a hundred times before, even if it is a bit complicated. You have the familiar path comfortably in your mind. You have your favorite chosen routes. You know them well.

I am chuckling to myself at my own inability to straighten out my directionally dyslexic mind/speech path. If my husband is driving and quickly asks if we should go right or left, unless I am taking that extra moment to consciously say the correct direction, I mostly say the opposite of what I mean. However, I always point my thumb in the correct direction, always.

I used to find this frustrating, since I do know right from left. But that thought always made me feel less-than. Why couldn’t I simply say the “right” thing all the time? Instead, I now choose to find this a bit comical. My husband chooses to find it endearing. He’s even told me there is no “wrong” direction, since the earth is round, that we will eventually get there.

To go in a different mental direction than the usual emotional route means going on fewer familiar roads, like choosing a new thought route instead of the old go-to self-sabotage route. Negativity has the lowest vibrational frequency but that is no reason to stay with the thinking that will sink your ship and keep you in a dark emotional place, including suicidal thoughts. Suicidal thoughts do not own you. You are the captain of yourself, not the lowest negative thoughts about yourself, your situation, including the situations on the world stage.

You can brighten everything you think, say, and do with the realization that you control your thoughts, feelings and emotions. They do not control you. This realization is one of the best ways to help yourself and others.

Concentrating on how bad you feel only makes these feelings get more obstinent. You are not invalidating yourself by attempting to make yourself feel better. I have heard so many people say, “But that is how I am feeling. I want to be true to myself.”

They think that by not choosing to stay with their dark and negative, or resentful, or angry thoughts, that they are not being honest with themselves. The truth is, they are not being honest, nor truthful, if they choose to stay in the darkest mental and emotional places possible. Yes, it might be true that this is the feeling with which they start out. But purposefully choosing to stay in that dark place is another matter.

Why would anyone refuse to feel better?

Some people like to wallow in what has brought them to the mental and emotional place they find themselves in, as a way of justification to remain in a bad mood, almost like a badge of their gloomy and self-sabotaging state. Without conscious focus and realization, they resign themselves to the fact that they are choosing their own misery, not the other way around.

Again, I ask, who does this intentionally?

This is a character development problem. Children wrestle with this dilemma until they come to understand that it is possible to have a better day, a better thinking system, solve more inter-personal problems, and find solutions to situations outside of themselves. In taking these self-help steps, children and adults alike come to discover that they do have a strong influence on what comes next in their lives.

Life does not stand still. Now is not forever. Things change. Situations change. People change, even themselves over time. Let us all take a moment in this distracting time in world history and in our own private lives, to begin to improve the situations we find within ourselves, our families, and in the world at large.

One vital thing to understand, is that even if you spend a lifetime uncovering and understanding why something is the way it is, it is more important on what you decide to do next. What saves the most life? What makes you most happy? Ask positive questions like these as opposed to haunting ghost memories that come from places of dysfunction, such as making decisions based on what you do not want. Think, speak, and act in the positive. This may take some time to re-wire your brain if negativity has been your habit.

As a graduate of the American Institute of Holistic Health and Wellness, taught by Dolores Seymour, Ph. D., and attending her seminars in New York City, New York, I came away with a greater understanding of the book she wrote, Who Cares Why?

Bosses and parents often try to get to the bottom of the present problem by finding out whose fault something was. Neither slapping wrists nor pointing fingers does not solve any problem. Pointing a finger at someone else results in you pointing three fingers back at yourself.

Understand it is more important to discover what to do next. Blaming and finding fault solves nothing. You can spin your wheels for hours, giving yourself a migraine headache and alienating everyone around you by staying stuck.

This is exactly what happens mentally with people whose go-to emotional state insists on staying negative, resentful, or angry. No one wants to be around people with these constant complaining traits. Know that it is possible to change. First, they need to know change is possible.

As Nelson Mandela was fond of saying, “Be the change you want to see.”


You Are Not Your Thoughts

All human beings are all tapped into the energies of Eternal Universal Life Force Energy whether or not they are fully aware of this fact. This is also known as the Universal Mind. There are times when we purposefully think out a solution to a problem. We ponder and ponder, then a thought comes to us as if out of nowhere. Sometimes we get the answers from our own brilliance and education. Other times we might be meditating or praying on a matter or a person, then get a wave of an idea that might help.

There are also times when thoughts come to us uninvited. They just suddenly appear. This happens, for the most part, when we are partly daydreaming or otherwise engaged in a project like taking a walk along a woodland path or some other activity that is not mentally taxing. All of a sudden, a revelation that we have not thought of before occurs to us.

At these moments, we become aware of the energies of thoughts that appear to have a life of their own. That is because they do. There is more to this concept than you may realize. Not only can we tap into thoughts which are seemingly beyond us, everyone also has a secret power. We have the ability to change things and their outcomes by simply observing them.

Holistic health therapists are trained in these unseen energies. You and I are part of a much bigger whole. In the energy classes I teach, I teach about the aura of each person, as well as the Earth. The radiation of Eternal Universal Life Force Energy within all life interacts and pulses with the consciousness of the more expansive THOUGHT energy.

Science has also noted these metaphysical anomalies. It occurs in physics, quantum mechanics, particle physics, electronics, thermodynamics, and quantum mechanics. They have even given a name for this, the observer effect. By the very act of observing something, we change its outcome.

Wikipedia is helpful at simplifying the reasons this happens:

“In physics, the observer effect is the disturbance of an observed system by the act of observation.[1][2] This is often the result of instruments that, by necessity, alter the state of what they measure in some manner. A common example is checking the pressure in an automobile tire; this is difficult to do without letting out some of the air, thus changing the pressure. Similarly, seeing non-luminous objects requires light hitting the object, and causing it to reflect that light. While the effects of observation are often negligible, the object still experiences a change. This effect can be found in many domains of physics, but can usually be reduced to insignificance by using different instruments or observation techniques.

“A notable example of the observer effect occurs in quantum mechanics, as demonstrated by the double-slit experiment. Physicists have found that observation of quantum phenomena can change the measured results of this experiment. Despite the “observer effect” in the double-slit experiment being caused by the presence of an electronic detector, the experiment’s results have been misinterpreted by some to suggest that a conscious mind can directly affect reality.[3] The need for the “observer” to be conscious is not supported by scientific research, and has been pointed out as a misconception rooted in a poor understanding of the quantum wave function ψ and the quantum measurement process.[4][5][6]

“Particle physics[edit]

“An electron is detected upon interaction with a photon; this interaction will inevitably alter the velocity and momentum of that electron. It is possible for other, less direct means of measurement to affect the electron. It is also necessary to distinguish clearly between the measured value of a quantity and the value resulting from the measurement process. In particular, a measurement of momentum is non-repeatable in short intervals of time. A formula (one-dimensional for simplicity) relating involved quantities, due to Niels Bohr (1928) is given by{\displaystyle |v’_{x}-v_{x}|\Delta p_{x}\approx \hbar /\Delta t,}

{\displaystyle |v'_{x}-v_{x}|\Delta p_{x}\approx \hbar /\Delta t,}where

  • Δpx is uncertainty in measured value of momentum,
  • Δt is duration of measurement,
  • vx is velocity of particle before measurement,
  • vx is velocity of particle after measurement,
  • ħ is the reduced Planck constant.

The measured momentum of the electron is then related to vx, whereas its momentum after the measurement is related to vx. This is a best-case scenario.[7]


“In electronicsammeters and voltmeters are usually wired in series or parallel to the circuit, and so by their very presence affect the current or the voltage they are measuring by way of presenting an additional real or complex load to the circuit, thus changing the transfer function and behavior of the circuit itself. Even a more passive device such as a current clamp, which measures the wire current without coming into physical contact with the wire, affects the current through the circuit being measured because the inductance is mutual.


“In thermodynamics, a standard mercury-in-glass thermometer must absorb or give up some thermal energy to record a temperature, and therefore changes the temperature of the body which it is measuring.

“Quantum mechanics[edit]

“Main article: Observer (quantum mechanics)

“The theoretical foundation of the concept of measurement in quantum mechanics is a contentious issue deeply connected to the many interpretations of quantum mechanics. A key focus point is that of wave function collapse, for which several popular interpretations assert that measurement causes a discontinuous change into an eigenstate of the operator associated with the quantity that was measured, a change which is not time-reversible.

“More explicitly, the superposition principle (ψ = Σnanψn) of quantum physics dictates that for a wave function ψ, a measurement will result in a state of the quantum system of one of the m possible eigenvalues fn , n = 1, 2, …, m, of the operator ∧F which in the space of the eigenfunctions ψn , n = 1, 2, …, m.”



Semantics, while we may use different words to describe people, the love of everyone remains the same.

Personally, I believe labels of any kind hurt humanity, separating people into groups, as if one were better than the other. They are not. All is One.

People have told me humanity is not ready for my next-step thinking, that by labeling people as black, white, Latino, et cetera, communities receive funds for the underprivileged. I say the day we stop labeling people is the day we treat ALL people with the same respect.

Rich people are not better than poor, nor are the poor or middle class better the than rich.

White people are not better than non-white people, nor are non-white people better than white people.

One gender of humanity is not better than any other.

All is One.

Fairness for all people, in every country, across this one Earth is where we ALL dwell.

All is One.

There but by the grace of God go I.

God Bless Everyone Everywhere.

The war is not with other countries, other politicians, nor any other group of people different from yourself. The war is buried deep in the core of humanity since its inception. My new book, which I am in the middle of writing, is just like this book mentioned in the title of today’s post. This book reveals what has been hidden, like the books and scrolls that were hidden away from humanity’s manipulating minds within politics and religions for eons. This is a universal message not meant to be hidden away in the Vatican Library, which it is, nor to be carved out in political and other religious thought today, which it is.

This is all due to what was not allowed into the bible in 364-367 AD. For over 364 years after Jesus walked the Earth, the world was able to read the entirety of Sacred Scriptures, the same as Jesus taught.

Now who is it really who would not want you to read the complete message of what Jesus taught?

Most religious leaders, many who are unaware today, since even they have not been allowed to read the once Sacred Scriptures not allowed into today’s mainstream bible, follow the token line that the “good God” of heaven decided which books and scrolls to include. This is not true.

It was human men who came up with the idea, not that of the good “God,” to tell their political and religious followers that if they did not follow the leader in their rules and regulations, they would go straight to hell complete with fire and brimstone. It was human men who placed Original Sin upon Adam and Eve, but mostly Eve. This is also not true. Original Sin is that of the Fallen Angels raping the women of Genesis 6:1.

There is a reason why churches are emptying their pews. Once you allow yourself to read past the repetitive “approved” scriptures with denomination spin, a more complete picture of what really happened, and why it happened emerges.

Jesus said, “Woe to the Pharisees, for they are like a dog sleeping in the cattle manger, for it does not eat or let the cattle eat.” Nag Hammadi Codex II, 2: Gospel of Thomas, 102

The Nag Hammadi Sacred Scriptures, like the example of food, while once known to feed the soul, was kept out of the Sacred Scriptures of humanity today. This is an unholy agenda.

Discovering this enlightening book illuminates human history within all of human interactions, not just humans conquering humans as history unfolds in history books, nor only within the numerous religious schisms. A kindred spirit to mine wrote this book. So much of my new book yet to be released, is echoed in And They Called Him Immanuel.

It may not be new news to you that even the bible currently in the hands of humankind has been maligned, hijacked for the agendas of humanity for unholy purposes, while bible-thumping you to death should you not go along with their self-serving purposes. With compassion, I understand that countless rabbis, priests, and ministers have not been able to know this information or have only read the altered bible versions.

I must add here that the ignorance of people not knowing what they do not know, while thinking that they do know, is part of the prideful problem which blocks their understanding to know the truth of which I speak.

Have you ever been berated by anyone taking their stand on the current bible as if that is all you need to know? If so, you know, if you have aligned yourself with them, and over time, that you will see there is still more to know.

There is much more to know why things are the way they are, but not with the spiritually mature if they think that any version of today’s modern bible is all you need to know. Please know there is more to know.

There are powers to be who want to keep you subservient, for their own profits and their own power. These ones will say anything and do anything to remain in power. While this is true, there is more to understand why this is still going on since the beginning of humanity.

And They Called Him Immanuel will help you understand the Eternal Universal Life Force Energy of which I write. It also holds out a helping hand to humanity who wish to come to grips with this knowledge and how to make it better for each and every person, not only the select few managed by individual groups, religious, political, or otherwise.

Every person in every country would benefit from reading And They Called Him Immanuel.

Sananda, also known as Jesus Christ, appeared on June 1, 1961, in Chichen Iza, Yucatan, to thirty archeologists working in the area at that time. Sananda appeared in a visible, tangible body and permitted His photograph to be taken. A reproduction from that photograph is on page eight of this book.

I recommend this book.

What Does “OM” ~ “AUM” Mean?

This is the Hindu OM Symbol. You can elongate its sound “OM” or “AUM” for vibrational frequency meditation and healing. But what does it mean?

The following is from Jet International in India, a wonderful place to get crystals, talisman items, and information regarding the popular “AUM” symbol seen above. I usually use the “OM” interpretation in my public meditations, classes, and writing, but both written words have the same sound and mean the same thing. You will find books on this subject correctly using the words “AUM” or “OM” to help humanity be able to say this ancient Sanskrit sound in meditation.

“AUM” is made up of three Sanskrit letters, AA, AU, and MA, which when combined together, make the sound of “AUM” or “OM.” It is believed to be the basic sound of the world and to contain all other sounds. It is said to be the sound of the universe.

In the Rig Veda, one of the oldest, if not the oldest writings recorded in history, opens with the words, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was “AUM” (or “OM”). Notice this important ingredient is within the word “Shalom,” Peace, a necessary part of creation, as is love manifesting Itself. If we truly want to get back to our roots of who and what we truly are, then getting back to “OM” is the answer.

It is the vibrational frequency of the Sanskrit word you are going for in this type of meditation, the overarching peace prior to the birth of Eternal Universal Life Force Energy manifesting and experiencing all life in and through you and me. “OM” is meant to be said out loud. You instantly feel the vibrations activating everything within you, from your thoughts to your tingling lips. This vibration spreads throughout your entire body like a warm blanket on a cold night. Relax and go with it. It is the vibration that is healing to mind, body, and spirit.

Traditional Yoga sessions often begin and end with sounding the “OM” mantra in the Yoga practice.

Listen for the sound of “OM” in daily life, rhythmically pulsing through life, since nothing is ever completely still. It is the sound of the universe rustling through the leaves, the waves on the shore, and inside of a seashell. Everything pulsates, even if it cannot be seen with the naked eye.

Chanting “OM” allows us to recognize our experience as a reflection of how the entire universe moves, as in the setting sun, the rising moon, the ebb and flow of the tides, the beating of our hearts. As we chant “OM,” it takes us for a ride on this universal movement, through our breath, our awareness, and our physical energy. It is then we can make greater strides to sense the bigger connection that is uplifting, soothing, and healing. All is One.

The “AUM” design can be seen as a symbolic representation of the various psychological compartments of the psyche, an inner dimensional map of the various compartments of the human consciousness and the relationship each one of us has with the divine within ourselves, our personal Spark of Eternal Universal Life Force Energy, the I AM Presence.

The longer lower curve represents the dreaming state.

The upper curve stands for the waking state.

The curve which emanates from the center represents deep sleep, beyond dreams.

The crescent stands for the veil of material illusion.

The dot is the transcendental self.


What Is Masking In The Day Of A Person Diagnosed With Autism?

The following is an article written by a person diagnosed with autism who is helping the world to understand, breaking barriers to ignorance and harsh judgment in the process. This post can also help people newly diagnosed with autism. I think it is time to recognize the fact that people diagnosed with autism are perfect as they are, not how others expect them to be. The paradox between what is considered to be “normal” and masking behaviors needs to be better understood. The world will be a better place if we can substitute empathy and compassion for ignorance and judgment.

“Masking is something I don’t think people understand very well.

“If you’re not familiar with masking at all, it is when a person hides socially unacceptable traits or behaviors and demonstrates or mirrors socially acceptable behaviors or traits.

“On the surface, it appears like someone is being knowingly and intentionally fake in order to fool their way into friendships, relationships and spaces they wouldn’t have had access to otherwise.

“But I was masking for 34 years before finally receiving an autism diagnosis WITHOUT CONSCIOUSLY KNOWING I WAS DOING IT.

“Intent is where I think most people get hung up. If they’re aware of masking at all, they assume it is done with the intent to deceive.

“What is *actually* happening is an instinctive and primal response to social trauma that is operating beneath the conscious awareness of the person who is doing it.

“Our modern Western society likes to fancy itself as a collection of individuals who are all “self-reliant.” If that were true, no one at all would panic about things like supply chain disruptions leading to empty grocery store shelves and Tom Hank’s “Castaway” wouldn’t have been quite so compelling if everyone lived entirely on their own with no help from anybody.

“We are FAR more interconnected, and interdependent, than we’d like to think. I view modern Western society as that precocious teenager with a haughty attitude who writes moody emo songs about what a loner they are and how they don’t need anyone… from their parent’s basement.

“The fact is, no human is an island. We ALL rely on one another. We ALL need connection with other human beings in order to survive.

“We think of ‘survival basics’ as things like food, water, shelter, etc., but think of Castaway again for a moment. Didn’t Tom Hanks have all those things? He figured out how to acquire food, water, and shelter, didn’t he? If those survival basics were all he needed, shouldn’t he have been surviving really well and having a great time? Physically, he was surviving. Mentally? Emotionally? The guy befriended a volleyball just to have some company.

“CONNECTION is just as much a ‘survival basic’ as food, water, and shelter. It is one of the very first things that we instinctively seek out as babies. And we do so because we cannot survive alone. Not as babies, not as children, not as adolescents, not even as adults.

“If it’s so hardwired into us to seek out connection, it makes sense that it would be the primal, subconscious part of our brain which would be in charge of a social coping mechanism like masking.

“That is how someone like me can go over three decades of life without knowing consciously that they are doing it.

“As I grew up, subtle (and not-so-subtle) feedback alerted me to the fact that my natural state of being was socially unacceptable. Most of this was happening mostly below the level of conscious awareness. So, subconsciously, I began to mirror others.

“Mirroring is something that even several species of animals do. It’s the reason why cats sit on books and laptops that their owners are trying to use – they’re *mirroring* their owners as a social behavior, to show shared interest, to connect.

“Certain species of penguins mirror, several other species of birds, several species of primates, etc. There are probably examples of mirroring in EVERY social species.

“And as animals don’t *quite* have the same level of consciousness as humans do, it is very clear that this is a behavior that is engaged in as an instinctual survival strategy, to meet the basic survival need of connection, not a conscious-level manipulation.

“Cats aren’t intentionally trying to deceive their owners when they are mirroring their owners, are they? They’re trying to CONNECT with their owners.

“And especially when we are young, connection is EXTREMELY important, speaking from a survival perspective. We are not yet able to meet our own needs. We need connection with family, caregivers, teachers, friends.

“So of COURSE, if we perceive that the way we are is endangering that connection, without even knowing it, we will begin to hide or downplay those elements of ourselves and to emulate the more socially acceptable qualities we have observed.

“That is what masking is. That is what mirroring is. It is a subconscious, instinctive attempt to gain one of the most important basics of survival there is: connection.

“It’s very known that many autistic people mask. In fact, I would argue one of the main distinctions between autistic people who non-autistic people perceive as “high functioning” and autistic people who non-autistic people perceive as “low functioning” is whether or not they mask.

“I would also argue that autistic people are FAR from the only human beings who mask.

“I would even go so far as to argue that masking IS a main component in non-autistic social communication. Except, instead of calling it “masking” non-autistic people call it “manners.”

“Or they call it their “work persona.”

“Hi! How are you?”

“I’m good, how are you?”

“Good, thanks for asking! Lovely weather we’re having today, isn’t it?”

“It is! Hopefully the weather stays good for the game tonight.”

“Fingers crossed! I need to get going to run some errands, but it was great running into you!”

“You too! Take care!”

“There’s an actual name for this type of conversation, but my internet isn’t working at the moment and I can’t look it up lol.

“It’s a type of communication where the point of the communication ISN’T to actually exchange information. The point is to follow along a prescribed script as a demonstration of politeness. In such a communication, it is seen as IMPOLITE to answer the question of “how are you?” with any answer beyond “good.”

“It involves potentially hiding someone’s true state and presenting only the socially acceptable state. Let’s say someone, a non-autistic someone, was having an absolutely terrible, stressful day. An acquaintance bumps into them and asks, “hi! How are you?” The non-autistic person is, truthfully, having an awful day. But they will most likely attempt a smile and reflexively respond, “good! How are you?”

“It would be seen as a social faux pas for them to answer with the true information: ‘I’m really struggling right now. Today has been so stressful and horrible, it’s the worst day I’ve had in a long time.’ That would brand them as a ‘negative’ person and it would be seen as rude to ‘burden’ the acquaintance with that information. Being branded as ‘negative’ and as someone who doesn’t follow basic rules of politeness will generally also involve that person being avoided socially, which is the opposite of connection. So, they hide it.

“I think that one of the main reasons why non-autistic people struggle to see autistic people who can and do mask as being “truly” autistic is because masking is such a huge part of non-autistic social discourse, and the ability to mask then is seen as a mark of someone being ‘normal’ (which, to a non-autistic person, is synonymous with being non-autistic.)

“In fact, one of the first traits that set apart autistic people from non-autistic people WAS being socially honest and blunt in that honesty. Think: Sheldon Cooper from Big Bang Theory.

“In recent decades, diagnostic criteria, following better studies into neurodevelopmental ‘disorders’ like autism, have broadened to embrace autistic people who mask. It’s not that there are suddenly more autistic people, it’s that autistic people who have historically been excluded because of too-narrow diagnostic criteria are now being included.

“Autistic people who mask tend to be regarded as FAKERS all the way around. People who are not well-educated in neurodevelopmental conditions tend to think someone is ONLY autistic if they are blunt and/or can’t speak at all. So, they think any autistic person who can do a convincing impression of a non-autistic person can’t possibly be autistic.

“Then, if they are educated on masking, they then think autistic people who mask are inherently dishonest, or intentionally dishonest.

“The truth is, some autistic people can and do mask, and do so largely subconsciously as a survival strategy. Some autistic people can’t or don’t mask, and those tend to be the autistic people that others regard as ‘low functioning.’

“But we are equally autistic, those of us who mask and those of us who don’t.

“The reason why I also keep putting ‘high functioning’ and ‘low functioning’ in quotes is because functioning isn’t static, it is dynamic. There are times when I have the energy and mental bandwidth to mask, and times I don’t. And that’s about the extent of my control over masking.

“Since my autism diagnosis in 2019, I became consciously aware of masking and that I had been doing it my whole life. And that created a sort of conundrum for me, because now I can SEE myself doing it, but I can’t STOP myself from doing it. The only thing that stops the masking is when I literally CAN’T anymore because I don’t have the energy to.

“I WANT to stop masking. I don’t like that I do it. I do recognize that masking has the potential to help me gain more and better survival opportunities, but to hold on to those opportunities, things like relationships, jobs, etc., that mask must be maintained in perpetuity.

“Masking is energetically expensive. It takes a LOT of energy to do it on the scale that an autistic person has to do it, because we’re not just masking having a bad day, like the non-autistic person in the example above. We are masking WHO WE ARE.

“So, when I don’t have the energy, I don’t mask. I couldn’t even if I wanted to. I don’t make facial expressions, and if I can talk in that moment, it is with a monotone voice, usually in one-word answers. In these moments, I seem very obviously autistic to the outside world. But I’m still the same person when I have the energy to mask and to seem talkative and gregarious. I’m still just as autistic.

“MY theory is that people who are regarded as ‘low functioning’ simply have even more sensory processing issues than I do, and it takes so much energy to just try to deal with that that they don’t have the energy to mask.

“I have sensory processing disorder and I also have auditory processing disorder. I have executive functioning disorder. But every autistic person is an individual with varying degrees of difficulty in all of these areas. I have a TON of problems with bright lights – bright sunlight, bright fluorescent lights, overhead lights of any kind, etc. I have a TON of problems with overlapping noises – lots of people talking at once, different songs playing at the same time, etc. I have a TON of problems with heat – I overheat very easily and when I do, I can’t focus on a damn thing. I have a TON of problems with certain textures of fabrics and seams, and I have to wear my socks inside out.

“But I am certain there are autistic people who struggle with these things to an even bigger degree, and if all their available mental and physical energy went to trying to manage that, they wouldn’t HAVE any energy left for masking.

“I truly think that is the main difference between autistic people who are deemed ‘high functioning’ and those who are deemed ‘low functioning.’

“This is already extremely long but bear with me for one more analogy.

“A woman is in labor. At the beginning of labor, she’s still able to talk, maybe even joke a little. She’s still able to follow most of the social rules of politeness. As labor progresses and she’s experiencing an increasing amount of pain and discomfort, she’s less talkative and maybe a little more blunt and a little more curt in her responses to people. When she gets even further into transition, and the pushing stage, she is now in more acute pain and discomfort than she ever has been in her entire life. It is ALL she can focus on. She may not speak at all and if someone tries to ask her a question she may even scream or swear at them.

“Even if she’s someone who, when not in labor, never wanted anyone to see her without makeup, she now is so focused on the physical process that she does not care that her hair, wet with sweat, is stuck to her face, that her mascara is running down her face, that she’s half naked in front of an entire room of people. She’s grunting and moaning and screaming, this person who under normal circumstances takes great pains to always be proper and polite. She may even be among the 80% of women who poop when she gives birth, and she may do it right in front of a room full of people.

“In the same way, I think this is EXACTLY what’s going on with “severely” autistic people. When you’re so completely overwhelmed by intense physical discomfort and pain, you don’t have the energy or ability to talk or to be polite. You may even be so focused on those discomforts and pains that you go to the bathroom without realizing it. (And of course, there are other differences. For instance, some autistic people ALSO have co-occurring intellectual disability, previously called mental retardation.)

“I’ve given birth twice and I am also autistic. Going through the different stages of birth is a very good corollary for the different stages of sensory struggles and having the energy to observe normal social niceties.

“In short, I think ALL humans, as a social species, engage in masking and mirroring, unless they are in acute physical pain and discomfort, as pregnant people are while in labor and as autistic people who experience extreme sensory processing issues are.”

I hope this helps people to have more empathy, compassion, and understanding when dealing with each other.


Did The Huge Billion Dollar Profits of Major Oil Companies Trickle Down To You Yet?

The problem with the economy is not that of a President. It is treating corporations as people that is the problem.

This is what happens when we voted to treat corporations as people. The proven-false idea of trickle-down economics is the problem. The same goes for the gun industry, and all other corporations who choose to fire staff and overwork the remaining staff while raising their prices so they can make huge profits.

Greed is at the helm. Money is not the bottom line, my friends. People are.

Let’s be better voters and vote out dealing with huge corporations as if they were people.

People matter.


Self-Esteem ~ Power of Positive Thinking ~ Personal Responsibility

Personal self-esteem can take an emotional hit when we place the value of ourselves in the eyes of others. It is a bonus when we enjoy family and friends who love us, treat us with respect, and want to be in our company. However, the opinion and treatment of others carries no weight in how we think of ourselves, unless we decide to take on the opinions of others as our own truth. That is a conscious and sometimes unconscious decision we make. I wish every person, young and old, knew this very liberating reality. What others think about us is none of our business. There is a lesson to be learned here about self-esteem, living consciously, self-acceptance, self-assertiveness, living purposefully, and personal responsibility.

Think of it this way, self-esteem is all about what we think of ourselves, not what others think of us. Self-esteem is valuing the person we are from the inside projecting outside of us. It is not a matter of matching a lower vibration of those outside of us to take into us.

Social, educational, and employment circles can falsely cripple minds of all ages if we place importance on everyone else’s opinion rather than our own belief in ourselves. This can happen to people of all ages. Relationships at home, employment, and educational settings need to be assessed periodically as a measure of you being in control of you, and not under someone else’s control-freak dehumanizing language, or behavior.

To correct a head-on collision course of self-sabotage, decide today to never again take on, as if they other person is right, any negative attributes of your character, personality, or even physical abilities or disabilities. Decide today, even if it is the first time, to try on the new thought pattern, the new behavior, and the new words that are only self-affirming, self-loving, and self-motivating into where you want your life to proceed.

If your world is filled with those who prefer to tear you down, psychologically, mentally, emotionally, physically, and yes, even spiritually, know this is not your tribe. These are not the people with whom you are meant to associate. This is a harsh lesson to learn, even when it happens within families. Better to be the lone survivor of those who use humiliation, shame, guilt, obligation, and manipulation to turn you into their puppet.

You are here on this Earth for a reason. You have a mission in this life. Maybe you have come into this life to learn a particular life lesson. Maybe you are in this life to help other people learn life lessons. There are things that need to be done that only you can do. Only you will meet the people you meet today, having a tremendous effect on you and everything around you. You are the master of your reality today. You matter. You are worthy.

Once you stand up for yourself, even by simply walking away psychologically, mentally, emotionally, physically, a new breath of positive possibility can dawn. It takes courage. You might think you cannot stand up for yourself. Yes, you can.

Changing paradigms, daily routines, and the people you choose to surround yourself with, can be challenging, yet exhilarating. One of the most difficult things in life is to change personal habits. We get addicted to our habits. They are comfortable, even if they are dysfunctional. This is similar to wanting to change other self-sabotaging habits, like smoking, dieting, and every other addiction. We can become addicted to the negative way we think about ourselves, but that does not make the negative perception true.

The first helpful thing is to switch your thinking from gloom and doom to a sunny thought, looking for the wonder and joy in each day. The bad things of each day will be there also, of course. There is good and bad with everything. Just know it is not all bad.

Yes, it is helpful and life-affirming to surround ourselves with inspirational, fun-loving people. Hopefully those can be our family and friends. But if you find yourself in a situation where change needs to happen, you can always rely on holistic health counseling to help you get to where you are going in a safe, healthy way.

Try something new, like simply smiling at people as they walk by, hold the door open for someone, and small gestures of kindness, join a group with your interests, a reading club, Yoga or walking group, or other safe ways to meet new people. Just know you are in charge of you and no one else. You are in charge of your happiness, peace, and fulfillment. That is not up to someone else. This is up to you. It is your decision to stay where you are, or to move on. The choice is yours.

You might be a more private or shy person. You can still do new things, explore online painting classes, like at Craftsy.com | Express Your Creativity! | Engage your passion with Craftsy and learn to make something beautiful! These classes have pre-recorded teachers demonstrating crafts you might like to try. Not all new endeavors require meeting people in real time. You can progress at your own pace.

Music can help to elevate moods. Moods follow thoughts, always, not the other way around. So one last tip is, if you don’t like how you are feeling, change how you are thinking. Yes, you can change what you are thinking about, like when you have had enough of something, you go do something different. Rather than staying stuck in the quagmire of self-sabotaging thoughts, make the decision to think of something more fun, relaxing, and/or inspirational.

Know that your self-esteem is not based in other people. Your self-esteem is rooted in your thoughts, beliefs, and understanding of yourself. If you are reading this, know that you have good in you and you are here for a reason.

There is a light within you. It might just be a dull glow sometimes, but it is there. This light has the power to shine on new paths, new ideas, new plans. This light is life. You decide how you will handle the upcoming holidays and new projects. Cleaning your physical space, your home, office, or employment can give you a long-awaited boost. Once you work with this light within you, you will be amazed at the good things that will come your way.


Making America Racist Again

The following is from my husband, John Hourihan, a state, regional and national award-winning newspaper columnist. In eight years, John has won 14 awards, for New England Newspaper Association (NENA), New England Associated Press News Executive Association (NEAPNEA), National Society of Newspaper Columnists (NSNC), several awards in New England Newspaper and Press Association, (NEN&PA).

In 2008, he won for his national column comparing what the Republicans were doing to the country with soldiers sitting around a Playboy magazine making fun of the centerfold.

The following is from a post he put on social media in the year 2000, which is just as applicable in this year’s national election.

“In 1964 I graduated from high school. I was awake, informed and tuned in to the country around me. In that year, in my hometown of Hopedale Massachusetts, I saw a black man who was arrested for walking down the street. The charge? Being a suspicious person. I saw in my country the vicious truth of what we are on the verge of ushering back in. No matter which candidate you support, please listen to what I saw back then. I had seen the courage of Rosa Parks and of the Freedom Riders. I watched churches burned with people, some of them children, inside. I watched boys killed for ‘looking at’ a white woman. I watched the helpless president try his best to stop the murders across our country. Police cruisers pulling over cars and then killing the occupants if they were black. Arrests were made, they weren’t charged with murder. They were charged with withholding the civil rights of the people they killed. The charges didn’t matter. All-white juries found the police officers innocent. In 1963 I saw the KKK torch a church and burn to death four little girls because of the color of their skin. State legislators stood up against the federal government in an effort to continue the policies of segregation. These officials were active members of these hate groups. Now these groups, KKK, white supremacists, antisemite, the entire alt. right hate groups are en masse supporting Donald Trump and any candidate who follows him, because as the leader of the KKK says, ‘His policies are our policies.’ When you look at that ballot in front of you in the next few days, please ask yourself if you are ready to vote for a return to those days and the days decades earlier when the violence was even worse. This is what Donald Trump, a proven racist, means by ‘Make America Great Again. Please don’t bring these people back to power. Please vote Blue.”

John has authored twelve books, one of which he co-authored with his daughter, Amanda Eppley; and two additional books on Kindle:

Play Fair And Win

Every year, thousands of people volunteer their time and experience to become youth coaches. Play Fair and Win not only teaches the basic drills needed to run a successful team, but also demonstrates to prospective coaches how they can form a winning team while remaining true to the principles that made baseball America’s favorite pastime. Drawing on his experience in coaching baseball and soccer at various levels, author John Hourihan provides valuable advice in every chapter, on topics such as:

Molding your team (from before tryouts through setting up your defense)
Teaching the basics
Putting your team in a position to win
Dos and don’ts
Unfortunately, most novice youth baseball coaches settle into what they thought was going on when they were ten years old–the games where everyone got gum in the beginning and ice cream at the end. Today, there is a lot more to baseball that is being left out. If you’re a youth league coach, to many players you are the game. It is your job to love the game, teach the basics, and remember that the players aren’t part of the equipment. Play Fair and Win will help you to develop a successful strategy and accomplish that goal.


Beyond The Fence: Converging Memoirs

There is a perversion of the American Dream that says greed is good, and that we should live, love, work, and advance inside the fences drawn by politics, religion, and laws. It is wrong. Through senseless inner-city death, the My Lai massacre, the taking of the Pueblo, a drug-addled return from Vietnam, and a trip across the United States with a Frisbee, the authors tell how The American Dream is still reachable, but you have to get out beyond the fences to find it. This book shows how two people did it.


Baltimore Catechism: Clean Slate

“My entry into concentrated Catholicism, a forced alteration in my DNA, was to take place today.” So begins John’s parochial education in this enchanting, semi-autobiographical tale of a young boy ready to learn the mysteries of the Universe.

First-grader John has an interesting perspective on life, much to the dismay of the nuns at the Catholic school he attends. To them, boys who ask too many questions are dangerous and poised to enter the ultimate fiery pit. As he struggles to figure out the lessons the nuns are trying to teach him, John does his best to puzzle out the religious teachings and how they apply to his place is in this world.

This tale focuses on John and the complexities of his family, who do what they need to do in order to scrape by in a blue-collar town. Dominating the landscape of his life is his Irish culture, which informs every part of what he knows about family and the world around him.

At times touching and often very funny, readers will identify with a young boy’s confusion over the contradiction between what he is told is right and what his heart tells him is right.


Baltimore Catechism: A Year of Confirmation

When readers first met John as a young boy in the book Baltimore Catechism: Clean Slate, he had just begun attending Catholic school and spent much of his time trying to discern exactly what the nuns were teaching him and what it really meant to follow the rules.

Now, John and his family face major life obstacles: housing, health and finances. When John’s parents decide their only option is to move West, John has no choice but to go. But the Arizona desert is very different from the Irish-Catholic Massachusetts town he came from, and he soon learns what it means to survive in the barren land he is forced to call home.

At times flippant but always thoughtful, this coming-of-age novel defines a year’s journey that takes John from crime to confirmation.


Baltimore Catechism: Mass of the Faithful

Moving was a constant, and often necessary, way of life for John. By the age of thirteen, his family had moved ten times. And now, as a freshman in high school, they would move again. To a place called Hopedale, a predominantly white, Anglo-Saxon Protestant town, a place where he was looked at as nothing more than an Irish punk.

He promised his mother he’d try, really try, to make things right with the kids at school. And the teachers. But some promises are harder to keep than others.
When his family loses faith in his ability to turn over a new leaf, John realizes things had to change. The year was 1965 and religion had turned its back on him, his friends suddenly declared themselves mortal enemies of all law enforcement, and Hopedale High School had shown itself to be nothing more than a place that existed in order to determine who would succeed in life, who would succeed in business, and who would work in the inferno known as Draper’s foundry. After graduation, John has one thing left in front of him that might help him find out who he was, where he came from, and where he would be going.


Baltimore Catechism: Sacrament of Reconciliation – Vietnam

Those who were never in war forgot that war is hell. It is not a euphemism. It is actually hell.

He’d survived elementary school with the nuns. He lived through a year in the southwest, making friends in the barrio. He endured the class warfare of his Massachusetts high school.

So when college did not work out the way he’d thought it would, John did the next best thing: he enlisted.

Nothing could have prepared him for what was about to happen.

In February 1967, I was nineteen years old and had just landed in Saigon.

He’d never paid attention to the news, and he’d never heard of the small country called Vietnam. But he quickly learned the language, the customs, and the problems that came with being sent into combat.

It was late January 1968, and all hell was breaking loose in hell.

Our lives went from damn near unbearable to worse.

In this haunting look at an era of American history, readers begin to grasp the moral dilemma of kids sent to fight for something they didn’t know and learn about a culture they had to understand in order to survive.


Th e Mustard Seed Trilogy:

The Mustard Seed 2095

In 2095, the god we worship is the wrong god; the science we believe in is not complete, and middle-aged Raphael Aronson lives a satisfied life as a sixth-level campaign formulator in a high-rise building in New Clovis City, USR. He is about to find out that technology is the same as human genetics, scripture is science, war is the same as peace, and God is not God. He will find it all in his search for the reason why his friend has been murdered for information he found by accident.

Aronson works creating political resumes that will be filled, after the fact, by men and women in bogus elections where the winner is nearly always determined in advance of the vote. With the help of a few friends, he dives into the city that has no police force, no cars, no cell phones, rife with hedonism in an attempt to discover who killed his friend, only to find that those who profess they are trying to -make the republic great- are pawns, helpless against the total power that was revealed in the stories of the scriptures and the text books of science.

He is led by a mysterious recluse, who calls himself a watcher, on a trip through human history and prehistory–how mankind progressed from -a curious little biped- to become one of the most powerful entities on earth, from scientific Adam and Eve through the Renaissance and into the third millennium AD where the politics of greed and falsehood nearly destroyed mankind in a flash of worldwide war. And he finds the top of the food chain, but it is not who he expected.

He learns how science and religion have always told the same story, and he will find out how the FoxP2 gene, the theory of relativity and the parable of the mustard seed are the answers to our current existence and the explanation of our future.


The Mustard Seed 2110

In 2110, the god we worship is the wrong god; the science we believe in is not complete, and Raphael Aronson has reluctantly become the president of the United World Republic. The Mustard Seed-2110, the second in the Mustard Seed trilogy, is an adventure novel that is centered around a totally new, literal and factual interpretation of the Christian religion: how it is explained in scriptures and how it is supported by scientific facts. President Rafe Aronson and his second in command, Morgan Baez, with a handpicked trio of warriors, follow the trail of a theft of military weapons into a world that was explained in the Bible and in science and in history. The story proceeds from Washington DC to Newfoundland to Arizona and through Hawaii and to the pyramid at Giza, and puts the planet, which had been torn by war from above and is under threat on the surface, back on the journey toward peace. But not without some startling discoveries. Technology is the same as human genetics, scripture is science, war is the same as peace, and god is not God. Aronson learns how science and religion have always told the same story, and he will find out how the FoxP2 gene, the HAR1 gene, the theory of relativity, and the parable of the mustard seed are the answers to humanity’s current existence and the explanation of our future.


The Mustard Seed 2130

In 2130, the god we worship is the wrong god; the science we believe in is not complete, and Raphael Aronson has given up the presidency of the United World Republic to his friend Uri Levinson. The Mustard Seed 2130, the third in the Mustard Seed trilogy, is a science-fiction adventure novel that is centered around a totally new, literal and factual interpretation of the Christian religion; how it is explained in scriptures and how it is supported by scientific fact. Morgan Baez and her friend, former president Raphael Aronson, with a handpicked group are attacked by an organization led by Rod Baez, Morgan’s adopted son. The story proceeds from Washington DC, to Newfoundland, through Hawaii and to Tel Meggido where the final unexpected war is to be fought, or not. Aronson has found out that technology is the same as human genetics, scripture is science, war is the same as peace, and god is not God. He and his friends are guided by a mysterious recluse, who calls himself a Watcher, on a trip through human history and pre-history; how mankind progressed from “a curious little biped” through genetic manipulation to become one of the most powerful entities on Earth, from scientific Adam and Eve into the third millennium AD where the politics of greed and falsehood nearly destroyed mankind in a flash of worldwide war. And he has found the top of the food chain, but it is not who he expected. Baez and the group follow the lead of a Watcher into the prophesies of the Book of Revelation only to find a surprise at the end where they find that the Theory of Relativity, the Parable of the Mustard Seed, and the Book of Revelation are the answers to humanity’s current existence and the explanation of our future.

Parables for a New Age

Since most of us never even knew mustard came from seeds or that there is a difference between wheat and chaff, and since few if any of us have ever seen a fig tree or even know what a Samaritan is, the parables of the Bible are currently beyond our experience and therefore the messages are often lost on us. Whether He was a good man, a prophet or a god, we still need the lessons Jesus tried to teach. They are good lessons. If understood, they make for a better world. So here they are, the parables for our new age, stories we can understand, about things we have seen or heard of, imbued with the lessons of the old parables, but in a way that makes sense to us. 


Parables for a new Age II

Since most of us never even knew mustard came from seeds or that there is a difference between wheat and chaff, and since few if any of us have ever seen a fig tree or even know what a Samaritan is, the parables of the Bible are currently beyond our experience and therefore the messages are often lost on us. Whether He was a good man, a prophet or a god, we still need the lessons Jesus tried to teach. They are good lessons. If understood, they make for a better world. So here they are, the parables for our new age, stories we can understand, about things we have seen or heard of, imbued with the lessons of the old parables, but in a way that makes sense to us. This is the second book of Parables, according to John 


His latest book, The Eighth Commandment: A Story of The Slow Death Of Local Journalism, being published by Blue Fortune Publishing, is now taking orders for release before Christmas.

Restoring Faith in Democracy ~ Freedom ~ Liberty ~ Peace ~ Truth in America and the World

Hubble Telescope by NASA.

There are people in the United States of America who say they value democracy and personal, religious, and political freedom on one hand, while at the same time are working to erode that very same foundation of liberty and freedom on the other. Authoritarian brutish belligerence is not the way to maintain the freedom for which the USA was born. It is a misconception that we will still have liberty and freedom after we destroy it. Who would benefit from such a political gimmick?

Lies are at the root of the axe chopping away at democratic principles. Peaceful integrity, honest conversation, and review of history will shine a light on why it is important not to revert back to the very reason the USA broke away from the dictates of England in the first place. Our Forefathers did not like authoritarian rules and oligarch regulations. Neither should we.

Manipulation of minds is the work of those who wish to usurp the treasures given to every human being by God, the Eternal Universal Life Force Energy. The USA is not alone in experiencing the assault on God-given freedoms with which every human being is born.

You matter. Your vote matters. No one, regardless of party or country owns your voice. Do not fall into the caveman mentality that might is right. It is not. See through the veil of fear and intimidation. Recognize that it is the game plan of authoritarian rule to try to scare you into believing that there will not be enough land, money, food, goods, education, or anything else as the reason to shut out others. This is not true. There is enough to go around. It is called sharing.

Greed, unbridled power, and selfish personal and political gain is at the helm steering the intimidating ghost ship with the hidden, or not so hidden agenda to undermine democracy, freedom, and truth in every state and country. This is not only a life-altering symptom of the USA aimed at destroying freedom of thoughts, words, and actions.

There is a dark force of energy apparent everywhere, not just in the USA that does not value individual human rights. This is a prime example of George Orwell’s 1984‘s double think. This force seeks to rob you of your rights by overlaying a blanket of fear, fear of lack, fear of want, fear of losing what you already have. Oligarchs of the world love this trend. Their motto is money is might is right. It is not.

Ethics matter. Truth matters. Do not believe the lie that all left-wing politics are lies and only right-wing messages are truth, whatever country where you live. They are not.

Unless you make a million dollars or more, no middle-class citizen in Massachusetts, for example, will pay more in their taxes determined in upcoming elections, despite what the wealthiest among us promote. Lies are being promoted that all small businesses will have to pay more if they do not vote with the millionaires and billionaires. This is not true. Investigate this for yourself.

The world is a conglomeration of good and bad, war and peace, truth and lies. All people have free will no matter where you live, even if you must make your decisions privately in states or countries that do not value truth over their ill-advised and self-serving lies. You decide what to accept or not.

Now is the time for reflection and decision on whether or not you value your liberty to speak your mind, without having to hand over your money, time, and every other freedom that a true democracy provides. Check out the lifestyles of the freedoms enjoyed by people in North Korea, for example, to see how well dictators provided for their people. Oligarchy is in countries ruled by big business, treating large corporations as people, which ultimately usurps the rights and privileges of the “common man” (all people.) Individual rights to fair taxation diminish with oligarchs in charge.

Who would benefit from such a political gimmick?

The rich and powerful, such as those involved in gun, drug and human trafficking, notoriously sweeping the world are in the pockets of politicians now trading common sense and freedom for subservience to the almighty dollar and their own selfish financial and political gain. We need to be more intelligent and not follow these inflated egos into the voting booths.

Freedom is freedom from manipulation and mind control. You are the boss of you, not any politician equally in the pockets of gun, drug, and human traffickers. People are priceless. The gun, drug, and human traffickers have prices. People are worth more than money.

Is pro-life actually pro-life for the lives of our veterans out in the cold on the street? Politicians love to say they are pro-military. The military has products to buy, income to be made, while veterans are in need of physical, mental, and spiritual care from faithfully serving their country, which takes government money to fulfill the promises made to the soldiers. Notice who the politicians are who always want to cut the budget when it comes to taking care of our veterans. Four consecutive budgets under Trump suggested cutting benefits for disabled veterans.

Is pro-life actually pro-life for the hundreds of hungry men, women, and children, including all people of all genders, or is pro-life qualified by an agenda?

Democracy is a precious gift worth keeping, at least to my way of thinking. Please make sure you are registered to vote and vote in the next election in your state and country. You make a difference in this beautiful world. It is time to build up humanity.

Who would benefit from such political gimmicks?
