The Full Scope of GOD






Many have gone looking for GOD.
but how do they seek?





Many think they can hide from GOD their deeds.
But GOD sees.
All things great & small are created by GOD.








With one eye gazing through a telescope and the other seeing into a microscope...This will give you an idea of the 'Full Scope' of GOD.
The expansion & contraction of the universe
is but a single breath of GOD.
Blessings

Book of the Day

Thought I'd share another book with everyone.

This is a 'special book' for me as it was given to me by the author.
I think this is a 'must read' for those who hold themselves
in positions of power.

Lest We Forget

Remembering Remembrance Day

Remembering Remembrance Day
We waged a war to not live that way
A war we won or so they say
But looking around all I see is dismay.

They killed alot of people but what did they win
They still live their lives in corruption and sin
Telling their lies to let evil back in
Refusing to rise and so let it begin.

They still kill the martyrs that witness to GOD
They still ignore prophets dismissed with a nod
They still war on the poor and onward they trod
Justifying all in the name of God.

Yet Cain still kills Abel
With all the cards on the table
Though this way is unstable
They still lay the cable.

With this thinking my mind starts to sway
I think the point missed on living that way
"The war to end all wars"; I've heard them say
But is that what's remembered this Remembrance Day.

Seemingly not as wars continue still
And all of life's problems can be fixed with a pill
And even the children have learned how to kill
But all of this is just run of the mill.

Then deep inside I start to grin
As I recognize the journey's within
With nothing to stop me once I begin
And all of life's puzzles start to fit in.

With hope I speak out that they hear what I say
And Listen closely to change their way
That they may avoid the 'End of Days'
And Remember that, this Remembrance Day.

Why We're Not Here


There has been a question
That has crossed everyone's mind
It has plagued us all
From the beginning of time.

It's been asked in churches
They haven't a clue
It's been asked in schools
But they're asking you.

It's been tackled by scholars,
Doctors, lawyers, and judges
And where writers have tried
We find only smudges.

Great thinkers have tried
And tried, and tried again
The closest of these I think
Was Mark Twain.

In the history of man
It remains unclear
And the question is
Why are we here.

To help out a bit
I have some suggestions
To find the right answers
You must ask the right questions.

Are we here to be the type
Who kills and destroys
Who builds themselves bombs
And plays with nuclear toys.

Surely we're not here
To ravage the trees
The rivers, the lakes
The oceans and seas.

I don't think we're here
To learn how to hate
Nor to suppress
Enslave, or mutilate.

I know we're not here
To watch children starving
Not with turkey politicians
Ripe for the carving.

I doubt that we're here
To spread this disease
I doubt that we're here
For any of these.

So what could it be
If none of the above
What of understanding
Compassion, and love.

With life so confusing
And answers so rare
I thought that just maybe
My thoughts I would share.

Word Wise


The government can be very "tricky" in their wording of things. Something to make yourself aware of and wise to very quickly if you want to gain the upper hand. Armed with the information here, all American visitors are challenged to search their own laws and see how much of the data provided here applies to them in their country - as well as all other western nations. Only by searching out the truth of the laws and your original rights and freedoms yourselves, will you be empowered to protect your 'natural person' as a human-being.
Here's 4 tricks outlined below:

FIRST TRICK:
The first "trick" of the government is the re-definition of certain critical words in each Statute(Act). They(the government) want you to assume the ordinary meaning of the word so as to trick you into reading and interpreting the Statute in their favour. Two key words that are re-defined in almost every statute are the words "person" and "individual". There are at least two "person" in law:
A 'natural-person' is a man or woman, created by God.
An 'artificial-person' is a corporation, created by Man.

Here are the exact definitions from Barron's Canadian Law Dictionary, 3rd edition:
natural person. A natural person is a human being that has the capacity for rights and duties.
artificial person. A legal entity, not a human being, recognized as a person in law to whom certain legal rights and duties my be attached - e.g. a body corporate.

You will observe that the natural-person has the "capacity"(ie ability) for rights and duties, but not necassarily the obligation. The artificial-person has rights and duties that may be attached(ie assigned) by laws.

SECOND TRICK:
The second "trick" of the government is to use the Interpretation Act to define words that apply to all Statutes, unless re-defined within a particular Statute. Without this knowledge, you could assume the ordinary meaning for the words you are reading, not realizing that they may have been re-defined by the Interpretation Act. Unless these words have been re-defined in another Statute, the underlying definitions for the two most important words still apply, either from the interpretation Act, or the Canadian Law Dictionary. Basically they are defined as follow:

from the Canadian Law Dictionary we find that:
INDIVIDUAL means a natural-person.
from the Interpretation Act we find the re-definition:
PERSON means a corporation(an artificial-person).
from the Income Tax Act we find that:
INDIVIDUAL means an artifitial person.
PERSON means an artificial person(amongst other things)

In the Canadian Human Rights Act you will see how INDIVIDUAL and PERSON are used and how they apply to natural and artificial persons.

THIRD TRICK:
The third "trick" of the government is to use the word "includes" in definitions instead of using the word "means". They do this in some critical definitions that they want you to mis-interpret. If they used "means" instead of "includes" then their deception would be exposed, but by using "includes" they rely upon the reader to assume that "includes" expands the definition, whereas in reality it restricts the definition in the same manner that "means" restricts the definition.
Here is a "means" definition of the word "person" from the Bank Act:
PERSON "means" a natural person, an entity or a personal representative;
Here is an 'includes' definition of the word "person" from the Interpretation Act:
PERSON, or any word or expression descriptive of a person, 'includes' a corporation.

To expose their deception, substitute the word 'means' and you have PERSON, or any word or expression descriptive of a person, 'means' a corporation.(viz-artifitial-person)

Both "means" & "includes" are restrictive in scope because they only encompass a part of the whole. Typically they are used in the following form:
person 'means' A or B or C(and nothing else)
person 'includes' A and B and C(and nothing else)
There is a Legal Maxim that supports the restriction of "includes":
Inclusio unius est exclusio alterius...The inclusion of one is the exclusion of another.

The definition of the word "include" is key to understanding your potential loss of natural-person. This is the major trick used by the government in an attempt to take away your natural-person rights. Unless you know this, you will voluntarily forfeit your rights.

FOURTH TRICK:
The fourth "trick" of the government is to modify how the word "includes" is used in order to make an EXPANSION in the definition when such expansion is required. This "trick" helps add confusion to the use of "includes" convincing the readers that "includes" is modified to become expansive rather than restrictive:
also includes
and includes
includes, without limitation
including
the expansive definitions usually take the following form:
PERSON means A or B or C and includes D.

DEFINITIONS:
Barron's Canadian Law Dictionary does not provide definitions for "include" or "means" therefore we have to look in the next 'source' for the definitions.From Black's Law Dictionary, 4th edition, here is the definition for the word "include":
include. To confine within, hold as in an inclosure, take in, attain, shut up, contain, inclose, comprise, comprehend, embrace, involve.
including. may, according to context, express an enlargement and have the meaning of 'and' or 'in addition to', or merely specify a particular thing already included within the general words theretofore used.
inclose. To surround; to encompass; to bound; fence; or hem in, on all sides.

It is stated in the above definition that the verb INCLUDE only has limited scope. On the other hand the participle, INCLUDING(but not limited to) enlarges the scope. When used in a definition, INCLUDE does not expand the existing definition of the word. It is easy to confuse because we naturally assume the existing definition of the word, then assume INCLUDE means to add this new interpretation to the existing assumed definition of the word. Our assumptions fail us in this case. From now on, when you see the word INCLUDES, mentally substitute the word MEANS and you will not be "tricked" by this definition anymore.

FOR THE DOUBTING THOMAS:
If you look into any statute, you will be able to find a definition that uses the word INCLUDES and when you attempt to broaden the scope of that word, the statute will break down because it will not be able to support the inclusion of the ordinary meaning of the word.

Today we live in a world where we are told that our fundamental rights still exist, but there are times when we wonder how this can be so. For example, we can have the full force of the law brought down upon us with a traffic violation, income tax regularity, refusing to fill in census forms, etc. These offences do no harm to another human being and in no way violate any individuals fundamental rights and freedoms, so we ask "how can this be?"

The answer is that your fundamental rights and freedoms are still intact as a natural-person, but you have been tricked into believing that you have to follow the Laws created for the artificial-person.
Following the Second World War, the United Nations Assembly prepared the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.The assembly called upon all Member countries to publicize the text of the Declaration and "to cause it to be disseminated, displayed, read and expounded principally in schools and other educational institutions, without distinction based on the political status of countries or territories."
I have never seen this done in any school. Have you?

In order to impliment SLAVERY of it's citizens and control them according to its whim, the government had to invent a system that would not violate a human-being's fundamental rights, but would allow the government to "own" everything produced orgained by its citizens.The technique used by the government was to create a CORPORATION for every human-being in Canada. As creator of a CORPORATION, the government can demand anything it wants from the CORPORATION. As a legal entity, a corporation does not have feelings and cannot be hurt. It can be subject to slavery and complete domination by it creators and the corporation must obey its creator. These corporations must then have a business number and so one is assigned to each PERSON it creates.
Such a number is called a S.I.N.(Slave Identification Number aka Social Insurance Number)
Finally, the government needs to appoint an Officer of the CORPORATION to run the day-to-day activities. Such a position requires a contract since the Officer will be held accountable for the actions of the CORPORATION. So, the government tricks John Doe to become the Officer for the JOHN DOE corporation by signing such contracts as Driver's Licence, BankAccounts, Citizenship Cards, Passports, etc.
In the 'Income Tax Act', the government just decrees that John Doe is the legal Representative for the Officer of the JOHN DOE Corporation and the only contract involved in the annual Income Tax Return(yes it is a contract for one year) wherein John Doe gives his aggreement as Officer of JOHN DOE for the previous year. Unfortunately John Doe does not know that he is an Officer for the JOHN DOE corporation and must therefore follow the rules imposed upon JOHN DOE. Hence the confusion sets in because John Doe believes that he is JOHN DOE and therefore has to forfeit his rights and duties upon demand by the government and its officials.

CAPITALIZATION:
There are five different levels of capitalization used in names of "persons";

human-being: john doe
natural-person: John Doe
quasi natural/artificial-person: John DOE
corporation/artificial-person: JOHN DOE
Nomme de Guerre: DOE, JOHN

Here is a summary of the rights and freedoms of the above "persons":
The 'human-being' has all the unalienable rights and freedoms as provided by GOD.
The 'natural-person' has all the rights and freedoms as provided by man with the Magna Charta and Canadian Bill of Rights.
The 'quasi natural/artificial-person has lost some rights, but not all rights. At this time it is not evident how to quantify which rights have been lost.
The 'corporation/artificial-person' has limited rights and freedoms as provided by the creator of the Corporation.
The' Nomme de Guerre has no rights and freedoms and is a complete slave to the Admiral.

There is so much more than what I have just shared here. It is only the tip of the iceberg. But it is also enough to make you aware of what you are up against and the deceptions built into our system of rule by governments.
Somethings to think about.
I have no ID, no drivers license, no passport, no bank accounts, no address.
I AM, a human being. I require no such things.
Free yourselves now.

F.Y.I.

I have copy/pasted this from "Homeless Nation" on a NEED to know basis, as I feel you NEED to know.

Submitted by lizalligator on 15 October, 2006 - 9:19pm.

Hi Folks IMPORTANT COMMUNITY ALERT!!!

FYI
I have revised my letter to the Community to alert you all out there about new information on Federal governments massive cuts and eliminat ion of programs and services; information that has not got into the media or more truthfully what has been kept deliberally out. To illustrate the importance on how these awful changes about what the Feds are really doing and how will affect all of you out there in all our regional communities across Canada.
Posted October 15th 2006.

Subject: Overview
The Impact of the Federal Government’s Elimination and Deep Cuts to Government Departmental Programs and Services that have gutted a wide swath across the very fabric of our Canadian Civil Society:
October 15th, 2006 ( Revised again to reflect new info )
Dear Friends
With respect to the cancellation of many distinctly Canadian initiatives, that had been put in place over a number of years. The first point I wish to make is these initiatives have been proven to benefit our Aboriginal communities, and have been highly praised by the United Nations Committee on Human Rights. Because the evidence proved that these programs were working and making efficient progress, they have been eliminated, and completely gutted.
It was quite apparent to me, that there was some bias overtones involved regarding Indigenous programs being eliminated such as health initiatives to help native youth to quit smoking and educational outreach programs around drugs and addiction. There has been a long and very dirty political history by our Canadian Federal Government. The Indian Act for example and land entitlement claims not to mention illegal gas and oil exploration and pilfering of natural resources from native reserves without the permission or agreement from the bands directly impacted.
These big global gas & oil co-operations have made billions in profits for the oil and gas industry, due to the illegal selling of large sectors of land being bid for and auctioned off by Provincial Governments i.e. Alberta, with the indifference of the Federal Government (Feds.) This tragedy and greed has been allowed to continue despite having driven many native communities into abject poverty and this point was driven home and proven by the Lubicon Lake Band in Alberta so that even the United Nation’s Committee on human rights finally understands this ongoing prejudice from the Feds based on the hard evidence presented by all of the First Nations representatives who spoke in Geneva on May 4th –9th 2006.

Consider Stephen Harper’s controversial right hand policy-advisor/ assistant (a transplanted Irish American) who not only wrote a really vicious, discriminatory and controversial book called 'First Nations / Second Thoughts' published in 1999-2000. When this information came to light, it caused a huge uproar especially from the First Nation’s communities in the 2004 Federal Election. He continues to advise Harper on these matters at the present time.
The second point is, everyone who is affected by all these service cuts and programs will suffer greatly. Especially our senior women; disabled people; people of colour, immigrants, youth and our children, as these cuts, cross a wide sector of our civil society attacking the very core of our civic, social, economic and political justice.

Legal aid assistance will be severely impacted due to the elimination of the Court Challenge Program and this would ensure fair justice through the C.C P. and our cultural economical spectrum. With this program gone the door to challenge the government policies has been shut tight.

Many groups, organizations and many sectors of our civil society have made it clear that they are very angry about the Governments latest actions such as our Canadian librarians who learned valuable lessons from their US counterparts with respect to the Freedom of Privacy and Information violations due to the US Patriot Act. Other sectors of our society effected are.

Forest protection environmentalists are especially angry with the cancellation of the Mountain Pine Beetle Initiative as this was a big election promise to follow through the Feds commitment to eliminate the pine beetle problem;
More than 85,000 of our independent Canadian farmers and their families are very concerned about the fact that they have been in the past as a very organized and vocal group, will now be prohibited, from advocating. Just recently the feds have issued a gag order silencing their voices, with respect to input and to lobby on behalf of their wheat crops.

Therefore robbing the farmers and directors of the wheat board an important voice and venue as the Canadian Wheat Board which handles billions of dollars to compete in the global economic wheat market. The actions by the conservative government clearly show their contempt for the independent farmer and their valuable contribution to both Canada’s economy and on a global level as our Canadian Wheat amounts to about 20 % of the world’s wheat market.

The Wheat Board has very recently been slammed with a gag order. The gag order states that;
a) It shall not expend funds, directly, or indirectly on advocating the retention of its monopoly powers, including the expenditure of funds for advertising, publishing or market research and
b)It shall not provide funds to other person or entity to enable them to advocate powers of the CWB.)

This gag-order was imposed by the Conservatives to silence both the Board and the farmers as the Government will be making what could be very damaging amendments to Bill c-300 “ An Act to Amend the Wheat Board. The Feds have made it clear they wish to dismantle the Canadian Wheat Board as soon as possible. These types of tactics that Feds have employed so far in their attempt to destroy farmers market advantage is dictatorial, unconstitutional and undemocratic. This gives the term ‘control freak’ a whole new meaning as applied to the Feds. More additional sectors of our society, such as our dedicated lawyers who provide pro-bono legal work are upset over the cancellation of court challenge program.

Museum people in the cultural arts, who provide rich, viable, diversified, multicultural and educational opportunities for research and hands-on programs both for youth, children and adults so that they can learn about our real Canadian history are furious and plan to do something about this as well.
The U.S. Government found out the hard way that you do not mess with American Librarians as they became quite vocal and efficient activists and fought tooth and nail against the impact of the Patriot Act.

Getting back to my earlier point of prejudice, discrimination and indifference towards our native people by the Federal government. I might also emphasize that, many organizations have spoken out in defence of our Aboriginal communities on this very issue.
§ The Canadian Bar Association,
§ The Canadian Library Association
§ Canadian Feminist Alliance,
§ National Association of Women and the Law, and
§ National Canadian Association of the Council of Women
§ The National Association of First Nations / Native Women.

In addition several of our national unions i.e. NUPGE and CUPE National, have already made similar public comments about this issue as well. In the City of Vancouver, there is a very large and disproportionate part of our aboriginal population who live in the Downtown East-side are being forced into abject poverty and are homeless, have drug addiction problems and it is a very serious problem that has developed into a health crisis.

Many of these people, especially elders and youth will be severely impacted or at high risk by these cuts / reductions or elimination of literacy programs or education initiatives such as access to and learning about the internet and how to make the ‘net’ work, best for the individual to be able to communicate with others; for seniors and immigrants learning a second language; improved reading and writing skills.

The third point is the cutting of more than $5 million dollars or about 40% per cent of the administrative budget of the Status of Women Canada as well as imposing rigid and narrow standards for funding and objectives and to re-instate the necessity for access with respect to advocating and lobbying. To combat, inaccuracies and indifference, towards Status of Women Canada.
I believe that objective information about the federal agency, along with providing tools and motivation for people to lobby the federal government to revisit changes made to the agency's funding and objectives.

Nine months after committing in election promises “to take concrete and immediate steps to increase women's equality in Canada”. The Harper administration has gone and removed all references to “equality” and “political justice” from Status of Women Canada’s mandate, and drastically changed rules in order to disallow groups from doing advocacy or lobbying with federal funds. These measures and changes alone are in direct violation of the following;

The United Nations CEDAW Declaration to Eliminate Discrimination against Women (Paragraph / Section. 353 – 380);
The Canadian Charter of Rights/ Section 15 ;
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights/ Article 19; The International Covenant of Human Rights under Article 11.
Beijing Declaration signed in 1995 / renewed 2005 for the purpose of promoting and working to ensure gender equality for all Canadian women

"The Harper Conservatives are clearly out of touch with reality, Oda and Harper have an responsibility to more than 16 million female constituents, whose equality and rights they are obligated to ensure and they are trying to paint women’s groups who speak out on this issue as victimized or partisan.

To counter that kind of ludicrous spin by the Conservatives, I believe that an independent space should be available, where anyone who cares about women’s equality can participate in specific projects to protect SWC.
For these reasons, I condemn the Conservative ‘messaging’ in labeling “advocates of women’s gender equality are only interested in focusing on women’s weaknesses”. Enough, with their convenient dismissals. What is needed is a sustained commitment to women’s equality which requires tremendous strength – especially nowadays, given the onslaught of inaccurate rhetoric from the right.

As a senior woman, who is fairly resourceful, creative and well educated. Although I am physically disabled and I have to cope with several learning (dyslexia) disabilities. Even with these daily life-long challenges, I am still very dedicated to raising public awareness about the importance of Status of Women Canada and the role it has played both in the past and should continue to play in the struggle for women’s full equality in Canada.
. Again, I wish to reiterate my deep concerns over the cuts and changes to the Women’s Program at the Status of Women Canada.

I am most disturbed by the recent undemocratic measures under taken by Minister Oda (Status of Women Canada) to try and silence women’s groups by drastically altering the rules of the Women’s Program at the Status of Women Canada.
Minister Oda’s decisions and actions are inconsistent with her job to advance and promote women’s equality as she has slashed the administrative budget and despite the cuts, being billed as administrative savings, these cuts will likely cripple the departments ability to undertake research, policy analysis and development and consultation with women’s groups.
In addition, as a reminder all references to the term ‘gender equality’ were eliminated from the new rules along with the term “political’ from references to the full participation of women in social, economic and cultural life. I demand an immediate reversal.

If the Minister fails to follow through with her obligations and responsibilities to her more than 16 million female constitutes, then we must demand that she resign from her post, effective immediately.

Background Information:
___________________________

I wish to include a recent report from official Liberal MP Status of Women Canada critic Maria Minnia

Subject: Standing Committee on the Status of Women Canada—A continued report from Maria Minna MP
Friday October 13th 2006
Maria Minna, MP
October 5, 2006

The following is a continuation of a journal of the meeting proceedings of the House of Commons Standing Committee on the Status of Women, as prepared by the Hon. Maria Minna, M.P., Official Opposition Critic for the Status of Women.

Much of what I want to talk about today has already been in the press, for this was the day that Minister Oda finally appeared before the Standing Committee. I intend to add my impressions and observations about what I can only say was an extremely frustrating experience. The Minister’s rationale for changing the “terms and conditions” of the Women’s Program to exclude organizations involved in capacity building and advocacy activities defies all explanation.

Insisting that the Charter has been in place for 25 years, the Minister claims that women’s organizations are demanding “concrete actions”. It would be interesting to know what organizations she has talked to – perhaps her friends at REAL Women and other similar right wing groups! The new mandate of the Women’s Program is to “facilitate women’s participation in Canadian society by addressing their economic, social and cultural situation through Canadian organizations.”

Reference to the participation of women in political and legal aspects of society has have been removed. In addition, under the program objectives, achieving social justice has been deleted. One can, then, conclude, that this government thinks social justice issues are not important or, have all been achieved. Finally, under the former mandate it was clear that emotional, spiritual, personal or professional development projects would not be funded.

This criterion, has been totally removed leading the way for REAL Women and such groups to be approved for funding. As appalling as the new exclusions are, it is almost more distressing to learn that for-profit groups will now be able to qualify for funding under the program. Really, what ever could be the reason for permitting this, especially from a government that thinks we should be pulling ourselves up by our own bootstraps?

She totally ignores the realities of women’s lives and quite frankly, dismisses the important work done by Status of Women over the years. Files, critical to the equality of women, i.e., pay equity, have benefited from support from Status of Women. However the Minister insists that: “After over 30 years of existence, Status of Women Canada must deliver real, measurable results directly affecting women and their families.” I wonder what she thinks they have been doing all this time ?
Calls for her resignation go unheeded, but I can assure you that I, and my Liberal colleagues, will continue to fight hard on behalf of the women of Canada. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with my office with your concerns and suggestions for action.

We must all work together to increase the public’s awareness of what is really happening at Status of Women Canada and pressure the government to rethink its position.

For up-to-date information and for further help in providing more public support, please checkout the a new website www.statusreport.ca that has been just created to lend support and give people who wish to support the work of the Status of Women in Canada for continued advocacy /lobbying and provides valuable resource tools.

The fourth and final point is, I have questions, regarding the real reason for the cancellation of the BC Fall Legislature and I wonder about any real political connection or possibly just a coincidence.
I believe that Gordon Campbell and his Finance Minister Carol Taylor received an advance, ‘heads up’ on what was coming sometime in August, possible shortly before the public announcement come out about the legislature session being cancelled.
When did Gordon Campbell find out about these changes and cuts by the Feds?
How will this effect, the service delivery of programs and services to all British Columbians?
How will the reduction of Federal Social Transfers to the provinces (especially here in B.C.) impact services to our regional communities?
Will we see more cuts to services and programs, as was the case in 2002? Especially for those who live in smaller /rural communities;
How will these cuts and elimination of programs and services such as access to the internet and adult literacy / educational outreach programs impact these residents, who depend on these services with respect to rural libraries and community centers in the smaller communities in B.C.?

HEAL the WORLD

I agreed with the following post and my comments follow...I just wanted to share it with my 'PEEPS' as well. (Inside joke--->'Dirty Toes' VS 'Boobies & Babies')

Article for discussion...reading or starring.. the reason I posted this article, is because I do believe in the power of the mind and its ability to manifest many realities....those I might not completely present my beliefs in the exact wording of the author, I do believe we can create harmonious intentions with our thoughts...please enjoy

How to Heal the World:

The Shift to the New Reality has been gaining speed for many years. We have entered a phase of The Shift which is now bringing rapid transformation to our world.

In physics, transformation emerges from within chaos. The existence of chaos is not an option, it's just the way the universe works. The global chaos that we are experiencing is,according to physics, normal. From mankind's point of view, to put it in everyday parlance, this is not a good thing.

The effects can range from mild discomfort to extreme trauma.

The good news is that the energy of transformation can express itself at many levels. The energy has to go somewhere, so if the energy of transformation fails to find expression at a higher frequency level, it will spiral downwards until it does find an outlet for its expression. But it can be absorbed and used at the spiritual level, diverting any need for physical upheaval.

The energy of transformation can be channeled into a spiritual focus, into emotional release or it can be allowed to manifest in the only remaining field of popular action, the physical world. There it will erupt through emotion-driven, physical phenomena - volcanic eruption, earthquakes and violent storms, for example. All of these "natural" disasters are driven by the chaotic emotional energy of mankind. All of them can be healed and prevented when people channel enough spiritual energy to soothe the chaos.

Today, it is more important than ever to send healing energies into the world. If enough people enter their
inner, spiritual space regularly, then the incoming energies of transformation can be expressed on a spiritual level.

You can make all the difference in the world today when you help balance the incoming energies of transformation by using the following technique.

The Infinite Being Heal the World Technique:

Reconnect with your spiritual source daily. Use the Infinite
Being meditation from the InfiniteBeing.com web site, or your own meditation technique, the first thing every day. Make it a habit, a part of your morning routine.

End your meditation session by spending time in gratitude for life, nature and the Infinite Being from which you materialized. Let a sense of gratitude for everything in your life fill your heart.

Then, intend world peace and enlightenment. Send this intention out into the world as love energy through the heart chakra just in front of your breastbone.

This alone would be enough to make a big difference in the world today. However, by adding a third component to the technique, it becomes enormously powerful and effective.

Powerful acts of creation all have three essential components - intent, feeling and motion. Those are the only three tools which Infinite Being used to create the universe and everything within it. That's how powerful those three components are, when used together in equal balance.

So far you have set the first component,

(1) Your intention - world peace and enlightenment.

You have also set the second component,

(2) A love-inspired environment - gratitude for the universe and everything in your life.

Now, it's time for the third component,

(3) Action. It is time to move that energy, in large quantities, into the global mind atmosphere surrounding the Earth. This is how:

On every in-breath, imagine white light from the Cosmos entering your crown chakra, above the head, and traveling down your spine to the level of your heart, then traveling forward into your heart chakra, just in front of your breastbone.

At the same time, see white light from the Earth entering the base of your spine and traveling up the spine, then forward, to merge with the cosmic energy in the heart chakra.

The energies of the Cosmos and the Earth will fuse together and cause an energetic reaction at the frequency of the heart chakra. This fusion forms a ball of energetic white light in the heart chakra.


With every out-breath, send the power of this energetic reaction out to the world. Direct it as a beam of white light from your heart chakra, out into the world.

Continue this in-breath, out-breath cycle for at least five minutes each morning and you will not only help heal the world, you will change your entire day for the better.

The universe reflects who you are. When you practice healing the world, by automatic reflection, you heal who you are. Any and all issues which have been challenging for you will move
closer towards resolution as you help the world in this way.

There's nothing like starting your day helping to heal the
world in these critical days of transformation. It's one of
those things that brightens your day and makes you feel good
to be alive.

My Comments/Two cents worth, though you only offer me a penny for my thoughts.

I haven't read this before, but I like it. I use a simplified version.
Breathe DEEP...Breathe SLOW.
Before you get out of bed, before you fall asleep, before you do anything...Breathe DEEP & SLOW and add power to it.
First and foremost is the recognition that in order to do the most good, least harm, we start changing the world when we FIRST begin changing ourselves...worry not how fast the world catches up...continue within.
Then we become like a single pebble hitting a still pond sending ripples out to the farthest reaches of humanity. We will no longer have to make people notice, as they can not help but to do so. I like to relate this to something so simple as wearing a SMILE throughout the day. A SMILE can begin on any streetcorner and still circle the world as it spreads out exponentially.
As well, there are 2 things that you will NEVER be able to control with regards to a SMILE.
1. When your smile might be saving someone's life...because more than anything else...that's what they needed.
2. When someone might be falling in LOVE with your smile.

Two very good reasons I think, that it's important to make THAT as important to wear as any clothing we may wear.
Even little smiles can grow. As a starting point...I can think of no better one.

your humble servant,
Ancient Clown

My 40th Birthday

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
I'd like to re-introduce myself for those who are new.
It was 40 years ago that a woman,(a virgin prior to my conception) travelled from the EAST coast shores of Nova Scotia to fly through the sky as the lightning flashes from the EAST, even to the WEST coast shores of Vancouver and gave birth to a Guardian in the house of the Virgin-(the Harvest Goddess)...a 'WARD' of GOD...who grew into 'Ancient Ward Vall Clown'.
It was this spring that BOTH a rare total penumberal lunar eclipse and FULL solar eclipse occured one week either side of the spring solstice...on this my 40th year and prior to my birthday.
An event that was lost on some, but not all.
An event that places yet another checkmark on my legitamacy.
More to be realized.
More to come.
For those who don't understand...SEEK and ye shall find.
GOD works in mysterious and wonderous ways.
BLESSINGS to you ALL.
I would like to give everyone a GIFT to share
Please LISTEN.

Quizical

This is just kinda funny to me,(but then, this is also why I don't do stand-up)...so today, I'm doing a little online researching and happen to run across yet another post of someone who created a post linking to me because they had apparently been here, but left confused...didn't ask a question or attempt to clear up his confusion...just left confused and created a post telling other people how confused he was...but still hadn't found or formed his question yet? Which lead me to this little quiz on the site of one of his supporters. (Who didn't know the question either, but felt, the fact that they were confused at all must mean that I'm an idiot). TURNS out this guy(supporter dude) was on the complete opposite end of the spectrum of this quiz as myself...strange that...he was hanging in the darkness and fire with the dragon...probably not aware he shall be thrown into the 'Lake of Fire' with the dragon as well.
Usually, I'd just stick this into my INTRODUCTION page, but I thought it was pretty funny...not as funny as the people themselves mind you, who don't ask anything...just, assume everything...(now what was that about the word 'ASS U ME'?) Hhmmm.

Try it yourself if you like.

You scored as Angel.
Angels are the guardians of all things, from the smallest ant to the tallest tree. They give inspiration, love, hope, and positive emotion. They live among humans without being seen. They are the good in all things, and if you feel alone, don't fear. They are always watching. Often times they merely stand by, whispering into the ears of those who feel lost. They would love nothing more then to reveal themselves, but in today's society, this would bring havoc and many unneeded questions. Give thanks to all things beautiful, for you are an Angel.

Heavenly Heroes



Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.
- Dwight Eisenhower 1953 speech

and NOW the
WORLD PREMIER SHOWING

"HEAVEN's HEROES"

Using film shot by Capt. Sweep, and produced at DreamSpace, Ancient Clown edits together a revealing and powerful documentary exposing, an "Open Forum" that was hosted by the CBC, concerning the issues of the homeless problem in downtown Victoria & other cities across Canada.
Promoted as a place where everyone's voice deserves to be heard, upon seeing the documentary it becomes evident that it is anything but. Key speakers and advocates of the homeless are repeatedly turned away, while city council and police talk about what a great job they are doing.
The "underlying issues" that prompt these lies reveal the very essence of man's journey and struggle with AWAKENING...'FEAR & GREED' and the refusal to acknowledge that which is within ourselves.
This documentary "Reports the TRUTH" the media is afraid to include when they "Make the NEWS" in an attempt to bring about the realization that UNTIL we 'STOP' being a part of the problem we'll NEVER be a part of the solution...However, as SOON as we 'STOP' being a part of the problem, we immediately become the solution.

DARE TO DREAM and BE 'NOT AFRAID'.
your humble servant,
Ancient Clown

What are you afraid of?

Be 'NOT AFRAID'


This post concerns our fears and the blocks they create. When one begins the journey into the unknown, fear must become something that is controlled and recognized for what it is..."a warning to be aware". One understands that someone fighting a fire must control their fear of fire, but not ignore it or let it control them. By the same token, when one engages upon the spiritual path, the beginning is through darkness and it will be here that you will be tested the most. It will be here that most will fall away and never continue beyond. It will be here they "GIVE UP", their journey and run back to their old life seeking a security that doesn't exist.
Some people think quotes like; "There is nothing to fear, but fear itself" are nothing more than that..."quotes". While others recognize 'words of wisdom' when they hear them and understand that hearing is not the same as listening, and use them as the tools they are. It is at this point that the universe reminds us that it is our ACTIONS and NOT our words that govern our direction. For those 'listening' it comes as great comfort, for those not, as torment.

"I would rather be hated for who I AM, than liked for who I'm not."

"A coward shall die a thousand deaths while one who is brave, shall have but one."

"The LORD never gives me more than I can handle, though we often disagree."

"Darkness always flees into the shadows at the coming of the light."

"Breathe DEEP...Breathe SLOW."

"Be 'NOT AFRAID'."

These are just a few of the type I mean...so...what are YOU afraid of and how do you combat it...or do you? As for myself I spent 30yrs saying; "I can't play guitar", because I was afraid of failing, without ever really having tried. I only really started playing guitar, when I stopped saying I can't.

What CAN you do?

NOT So Funny

A man I met, calls himself Capt. Sweep, filmed and edited this next piece. I should warn you that it may contain scenes that some may find offensive or disburbing...but I'm NOT going to.
Instead I'll warn you, as I must, that the actions of so many like this...but NEVER seen on film, is FAR more offensive & disturbing. That the lack of action on behalf of so many, is FAR more offensive & disturbing. That the consequences from ALL these actions combined, is FAR more offensive & disturbing.

CBC holds Forum

CBC
Making the NEWS instead.
(I think it's their new moto)

CBC makes Homelessness issues the front-burner for a (I'd say "OPEN", but I'd be lying)Forum, held in a small room within the Victoria library. Small enough to 'restrict access' to ONLY those wanted to help make the broadcast...All the UNDESIRABLE's were NOT allowed in...Even as people left, I was refused entry.
For them,
Rev. Al must be their voice, (as he was there, allowed in and allowed to speak) you must tune in to hear for yourself if he raised the issue of police officers walking into his CARE Facility and uttering death threats to the patrons. You'll be able to hear him raise the issue of abusive, lying staff at these facilities,(such as his son). YES, I'm sure that, since this forum is happening, it's to get answers. You can bet he'll be raising the issue of blanket justice inflicted upon the poor. Why wouldn't he? If one of you speed and crash the car, are you ALL no longer allowed to drive? WHEN you find a dishonest cop, are they ALL fired? WHEN you find a dishonest politician, is the whole council tossed? I'm sure it's not JUST about funding, trying to get more money for the SLAVE* trade.

*Please note: some may feel I've used the term SLAVE too harshly, but I'd like to remind all at this point that slavery is not determined by the rate of pay, nor the type of job, but rather the removal of choice. So unless you can PROVE that ALL "These People" are homeless and poor by choice ---(a small few of us are, but not ALL), I'll keep using the wording as is.

THE UNWRITTEN (but always used) LAW Of The HOMELESS
If one person gets caught using the phone for drugs...the phone is REMOVED.
If one person gets caught shooting drugs in the bathroom...the doors are LOCKED.
If one person gets caught for ANYTHING...EVERYONE is punished.
STAFF may speak however they wish to, or falsely about any of the 'inmates' of these CARE facilities without ANY repercussions, but if the 'inmate' attempts to defend himself in ANY way he is termed, 'ABUSIVE to STAFF' and BARRED.

On a daily basis, "THESE PEOPLE", as termed by such heartfelt-speakers, are punished for crimes they've NEVER committed. Yesterday morning 4 police officers, that included 2 SGT's, took a women from the shelter with the "STORY" that she had to go with them to provide a blood sample, despite the FACT there was a doctor present at the time, because another officer had pricked her finger on a needle and was at the hospital. DESPITE the dire urgencey of the moment they suggested, they spent well over 20-30 mins. waiting for her to get her things together, depsite the fact all they said they needed was a blood sample and then she could go. And today the police are saying they need to free up officers. WOW.


ONLY GOD's Justice shall BALANCE this.
As "those people" continue to refuse to listen
it SHALL come upon them suddenly and unexpectedly.
But they won't be able to say they didn't know.
ONLY that they didn't 'Listen'.
Strange, that even after the past 2000 yrs
let alone the thousands before,
THAT should STILL be their excuse.


REPORT THAT CBC

Barred AGAIN

I was barred again from "OUR PLACE" yesterday. The reason, (as I have it in writing this time), was for the following; (this is exactly what's written)

Aug.22/06
- An incident occured in Our Place doorway and staff ask all others the please come inside to keep area clear.
- Ancient refused to move either in or away from doorway and ultimately was asked to leave the center for the day.
Bob F.


This "INCIDENT" they describe, but don't tell you anything about, was of a VERY small homeless man being violently chased by 2 much larger security officers who ran fully into, (not just the doorway of), the SHELTER called 'OURPLACE' seeking safety from FEAR of what they were going to do to him. These 2 security men were then joined by yet 2 more. The STAFF of 'Our Place' to whom he ran seeking safety...sent him back outside with the growing number of guards, which is when I went out, because I saw a guard make yet another attempt to put his hands on this man. I was clearly outside of the facility, simply on the sidewalk, doing nothing more than witnessing. They said the POLICE had been called and ORDERED me inside. (Remember folks I'm outside on the sidewalk, witnessing this...I didn't realize how much of a prison it was until then and HOW MUCH they think they own and control me).

I refused to leave this man alone with NOW 4 much larger security guards who have already displayed unrighteous and illegal behavior. I was told point blank I will be barred if I do not go inside 'NOW". (They have no authority over me..I'm not an inmate of this CARE FACILITY. Other than for the purpose of removing potential honest witnesses there was no NEED to tell me to do anything.)
AGAIN I refused, saying I will not leave this man alone, and told them they had no right to even ask and are immoral for doing so. I was then told I was barred.
I told them I wanted it in writing and I would wait for it. Then Jordan (Rev. Al's son) said they were phoning the POLICE, on me now, and he refused to put it in writing.
Bob did though...though he had to check a few times to come up with a good story to keep it straight.
Then the police showed up...and left again...without getting out of the car as they saw us, I had moved to stand beside my brother at this point.

Apparently, this "INCIDENT" they mentioned, without mentioning further, was severe enough to have 4 security officers all hot and bothered and gathered together phoning the police, get me barred, have the cops called again on me, have the police arrive...only so they could drive away without getting out of the car.
I'm sure it had nothing to do with me being a witness FOR the accused.
No report...NO CRIME.
Apparently...after all was said and done.
NOTHING happened yesterday.
NOTHING to SEE here.
Don't let it bother you.
Move along please.
