An Army of Oneness

(A friend sent me this in an email, I liked it very much. Thought I would share it. I would like to give props to the author, but apparently they are Unknown, just a another Channel in the long list of Universal Conduits hiding among us)

Spiritual Conspiracy

Author, Unknown

On the surface of the world right now there is
war and violence and things seem dark.
But calmly and quietly, at the same time,
something else is happening underground
An inner revolution is taking place
and certain individuals are being called to a higher light.
It is a silent revolution.
From the inside out. From the ground up.
This is a Global operation.
A Spiritual Conspiracy.
There are sleeper cells in every nation on the planet.
You won't see us on the T.V.
You won't read about us in the newspaper
You won't hear about us on the radio
We don't seek any glory
We don't wear any uniform
We come in all shapes and sizes, colors and styles
Most of us work anonymously
We are quietly working behind the scenes
in every country and culture of the world
Cities big and small, mountains and valleys,
in farms and villages, tribes and remote islands
You could pass by one of us on the street
and not even notice
We go undercover
We remain behind the scenes
It is of no concern to us who takes the final credit
But simply that the work gets done
Occasionally we spot each other in the street
We give a quiet nod and continue on our way
During the day many of us pretend we have normal jobs
But behind the false storefront at night
is where the real work takes a place
Some call us the Conscious Army
We are slowly creating a new world
with the power of our minds and hearts
We follow, with passion and joy
Our orders come from the Central Spiritual Intelligence
We are dropping soft, secret love bombs when no one is looking
Poems ~ Hugs ~ Music ~ Photography ~ Movies ~ Kind words ~
Smiles ~ Meditation and prayer ~ Dance ~ Social activism ~ Websites
Blogs ~ Random acts of kindness...
We each express ourselves in our own unique ways
with our own unique gifts and talents
Be the change you want to see in the world
That is the motto that fills our hearts
We know it is the only way real transformation takes place
We know that quietly and humbly we have the
power of all the oceans combined
Our work is slow and meticulous
Like the formation of mountains
It is not even visible at first glance
And yet with it entire tectonic plates
shall be moved in the centuries to come
Love is the new religion of the 21st century
You don't have to be a highly educated person
Or have any exceptional knowledge to understand it
It comes from the intelligence of the heart
Embedded in the timeless evolutionary pulse of all human beings
Be the change you want to see in the world
Nobody else can do it for you
We are now recruiting
Perhaps you will join us

Or already have. Thank You.
All are welcome
The door is open

2+0+1+0=3, Git-R-Done!

It has come to my attention that certain folks of the spiritual persuasion are announcing this year to be a 1 year in terms of numerology. Obviously they are only taking into consideration the last 2 digits (10), but last I checked, numerology used every number in the date, such the title of my post.

There is quite a difference between a 1 year and a 3 year in terms of meanings. I'm going with the 3 year, the signs of the Universe at large swing in my favor. We had 2 full moons in December, the second being what's referred to as a "Blue Moon".
A Blue Moon happens when a Full Moon occurs twice in the same zodiacal sign in a single astrological year. The second Full Moon of the two is known as the Blue Moon. Since we had 2 moons in one month, and on New Year's Eve, now that's a gift from the Universe! When I gazed outside the sky was cloudy so I did not see the moon, but the snow, the sky, trees, everything had a beautiful blue hue to it. I tried to capture it on my camera, but it did not due it justice. Ever seen a Blue Angel (not the dudes in the planes!), there must have been thousands of them that night. Blue is a warm, comforting, serene color. The color to calm oneself with, proven by how many bedrooms in this world are painted in blues. Blue is also the color of your Throat Chakra, the color of the Truth Goddess. It's time to open your mouth and put it all out there, the truth will set you free this year, literally! Ask and you shall receive :) Say it out loud so the Universe can really hear you. Let no BS pass your lips or it will whip back around like a boomerang and whack you upside your head so fast you'll get whiplash.

The Number 3, the Trinity of Truth, Trust & Passion. All good things come in 3s. Father, Son & Holy Ghost; Man, Woman & Child; Celtic Trinity Knot (no beginning,no end, timeless nature of our spirit), the Pyramid. We could go on and on, think about, see what you can come up with. The Pyramid is what grabs me this 2010; 3 sides, perfectly complete. Put yourself inside the pyramid, label your corners for whatever venture, adventure, healing process, whatever you'd like to accomplish this year. Work your way around the pyramid to complete your goals. You can't miss, you'll end up at the beginning again, only this time you've got the job done, making yourself a cycle of completion. No going around in circles, never seeing the next point, getting bored and giving up, like Fido chasing his tail. This being a 3 year is great for the 'Git-R-Done' motto (see Larry up top for inspiration), it's virtually guaranteed success!

I asked my Angel Cards for a card for 2010 (see the pic above), this is what I got.
Akatriel (a-ka-tre-el): guidance, learn, begin & multiply. Alpha & Omega, beginning and endgame.
Kinda says it all, don't it. But wait, there's more!
"This is your new beginning, empower your will regarding this immense opportunity, it can lead to unimaginable new heights for your heart and soul. Remember, as Above, so below. Yellow is for Creation, willpower, Orange passion, green expansion, Crimson for even mind & spirit determine to create your masterwork, you must also birth as well as nurture this perfection. Reap what you sow, but not only for you. Through gradual sowing it will provide vital heart and soul nourishment for many who are waiting for just this abundance."

So you can help others while helping yourself, charity begins at home they say! As you grow, so does your field of positive energy, and others benefit from your glow. So be your own New Year Shiny Ball and start blinding yourself and others!

Enough Already!

12 Ho's a talkin'....

11 lawyers arguing....

10 sponsors running....

9 cell phones sexting...

8 golf clubs broken.......
7 tournaments cancelled...
6 million lost dollars....
5 stupid apologies...
4 endless media reports...
3 pissed off in-laws...
2 alter egos...
And a douche-bag in a trashed S

My personal tribute to Trash Media, can we get on with the holiday season now! Who really cares what grief Tiger Woods has caused himself. It's his karmic pool, let him swim in it. I feel for his wife, as any woman would, but do we really need 24/7 coverage of this sad state of affairs? Does she?
Where is the Christmas spirit in all of this? TV News Media really sucks the big one!
Merry Christmas NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN and lest us not forget FOX........

Inspire Me Mondays #10 - Stories

This week I will let my friend Vicki Dynes inspire you. This story was written by her. She could use some inspiration herself, she is home sick with pneumonia.
Ephesus Learns How a Rock Became a Grain of Sand
The fish did not hear her and soon was out of sight. She looked up in the sky and saw a seagull. “Oh Hello” she said to the seagull, “Can you fly down here and talk to me?” The seagull cawed and swooped down near her. “Oh thank goodness” she thought, “Someone is going to come and play with me.” The seagull came very close, in fact so close Ephesus was splashed with water. No sooner had the seagull crashed into the water it was gone, soaring up into the air with a small fish in its mouth. In complete dismay, Ephesus lamented out loud, “Nobody wants to talk to me. I am so lonely and bored. I wish a wave could come back and take me out to sea to play with my friends again.” With this thought in mind she started watching the waves intently. Imagining that they were getting closer and closer but they were actually getting further away. This was too much for her to bear and she burst out into tears. “Oh I am so lonely and there is no one to talk to or play with.” She was deserted on the shore. With it being low tide she realized that it would not be until morning that a big wave would come again. Her sobs became louder but were quelled when she fell asleep from her exhaustion.
The next morning she woke up and realized where she was. She was about to sob again when she heard a little voice. “Who said that?” asked Ephesus. She listened again. She looked above in the sky. She looked in the water and out at the waves. She could see no one. “There is no need to cry. Everything will be all right” a little voice said.
She looked down around her and all she could see was the sandy beach and a few twigs of seaweed. “Where are you?” she asked. “I am down here. There is no need to cry. We heard you sobbing yesterday and we thought we better talk to you before you start sobbing again.” To Ephesus’ surprise she realized that a little grain of sand was speaking to her.
The little grain was glistening in the sun and seemed to be sparkling with all the colours of the rainbow. “Oh you are so beautiful but so little” blurted out Ephesus before she could think of a proper introduction to her new potential friend.“You are very beautiful too” said the little grain of sand. Ephesus starting smiling for the first time since the moment she realized she would be stuck on the shore. “I am so glad you started talking to me. I am so bored and I just can’t wait for the high tide to come and wash me out to sea so I can play with my friends again. There is nothing to do.”
The little grain of sand paused for a moment and seemed to be contemplating what it was going to say next. “Can you turn and look at the hill behind you?” asked the little grain of sand. Ephesus turned and looked, but all she could see was a hill, some plants and a few rocks. She had no idea why the grain of sand would want her to look over there. “Do you see anything similar to me?” further asked the little grain of sand. She was confused and thought she would take a guess to impress her new found and only, current friend. “Well, I see some colors” said Ephesus. Ephesus was a little impatient but was trying to be nice for fear her new friend would not talk to her. “See the rocks over there. We are very similar. There is only one difference. Do you know what that difference is?” asked the little grain of sand. Now Ephesus was getting even more frustrated. Without thinking much about it and hoping that the tide was going to come soon and wash her away she said “I give up - tell me.” The grain of sand replied “It is time. Many moons ago I was a big rock but with time I became smaller and smaller and now here I am.”
Suddenly Ephesus was impressed. “Wow! How could you wait so long to change yourself in to a little grain of sand?” She thought of how quickly she became bored with sitting on the shore. “It’s not a matter of waiting. It’s a matter of being” said the little grain of sand. Ephesus was now really interested in what the little grain of sand had to say. “What do you mean by being?” The little grain of sand replied, “With each moment of time you can be whatever you want to be. Nothing matters in the past or future. Every moment is new and exciting.” “ And what is the purpose of being?” asked Ephesus. This seemed like a very smart question to ask. “If you are being yourself you will enjoy the cycles of life.” continued the little grain of sand. The little grain of sand paused again searching for the right words to use. “If you can accept change freely and allow yourself to be whatever you feel like being you will never be bored again. You will look at every experience with enthusiasm and excitement. You will discover things you might want to change about yourself. You will have the faith and perseverance to change them.” Now Ephesus was lost. “What does faith and perseverance mean?” she asked.
Answered the little grain of sand: “It means that with each change you are about to make you will be focused, disciplined and supported. I will explain by an example. As a rock, I went through frustration not wanting to get smaller. I resisted. It took a long time before I could see what I was resisting. You might want to call it a blind spot. Next I was mad at the creator for making me a rock and subjecting me to the elements. After this I thought it must be my entire fault - that I must have done something to deserve this. This is when I became really confused. This is when I could really have lost my chance to be”. The little grain of sand paused as if waiting for a question from Ephesus. Ephesus thought hard as to what she should ask. Delighted she asked “What saved you from not being?” Her words were not well chosen but she thought it was a great question to ask. “Just in my greatest moment of despair a little grain of sand started talking to me and explained to me about focus, discipline and support. When I calmed down I felt solidly connected with earth and I could think how fun and exciting it would be to become a grain of sand. I became grounded.” replied the little grain of sand. The little grain of sand went further to say “I stayed within myself. I felt and visualized my connection with Mother Earth. I focused on allowing the water to embrace me and make me smaller. I disciplined myself to be on the beach at a location where both high tide and low tide could reach me. I tried to embrace each wave with a new delight knowing that I was on a journey of change. I accepted the support from my friends to face the changes so I was not alone.” The little grain of sand waited to see if Ephesus wanted to ask anymore questions. Ephesus was busy trying to absorb everything and could not think of any questions.
The little grain of sand decided to continue its story, “With time my friends and I realized we were no longer huge rocks but little grains of sand. We celebrated and played games with one and other. We then rested quietly in the sun and took in what a huge accomplishment each and every one of us had made. As we sat back in the sun we noticed such bright colours and light. The brilliance was dazzling to our eyes. We suddenly realized that the bright colors were coming from us. Again we went through another change together but this time it was much easier. And…”
In that moment a huge wave came galloping up on to the shore with such vigor that both Ephesus and the little grain of sand did not know what was happening. In a moment, Ephesus was being embraced and carried back to the depths of the sea. The little grain of sand called out “Goodbye. I love you and wish you many wonderful changes.” Ephesus panicked realizing that she forgot to ask one question but remembering her manners she said: “Goodbye. I love you. I still don’t know what you mean by grounding?” The anxiety was showing in her last question. The little grain of sand replied in all of its beauty: “You can always come back again. If you can’t find me I have many friends that can help you out.”
Ephesus felt tightness in her chest and throat and did not understand why this was happening. Before she knew it though she was deep in the sea and amongst her friends. They asked her if she was okay. She replied “I am much better than okay. I am great and I can be whatever I want to be.”

It was then that her friends noticed that Ephesus was much brighter and more colourful than they had ever seen her before.

More Pumpkins

This is your brain on Halloween overload, this is your Pumpkin on Crack!

Could you just imagine the look on Linus's face if he saw this Great Pumpkin cresting over the field......
He'd gone face down in the dirt, strangling himself with his own blanket trying to make a get away. Now there's a Charlie Brown cartoon I could get on board with! Those toons always gave me a glazed over, bored to tears look on my face. I don't care how classic they are, those kids desperately needed to get off the Prozac and on some sugar!

I picked this guy up in a ceramic shop about 7 years ago, I laughed so hard when I saw him on the shelf. He was just so in your face about the so called scariness of Halloween. It took me only a few hours to paint him up. I'm extremely proud of how he turned out. I brake him out every year and put on the front desk at work, he brings out a smile in everyone that walks by.

Grin, it makes people wonder what you're up to!

Punkin Week - Tuesday

Punkins, Arizona Style...

Ceramic globes of burnt orange for your yard, what a waste. When you're a town that has Aliens, how do meer pumpkins top that? If you can't get ET to sit on your porch, apparently these are the next best thing.
But I agree with Don, pumpkins should not be this perfect. Where's the fun in that! Make'em goofy, huge, colorful and a reflection of your crazy, creative, self!
No pumpkin seeds either, how depressing...

Inspire Me Mondays #9 - Business Ventures

Aliens don't exactly inspire me as much as the fact that someone had the balls to set up this business venture in the first place. Apparently aliens have been seen in and around the Red Rocks of Sedona, AZ for eons. Must be all that Vortex Energy! But some witty soul saw the need for a service to promote (and exploit, some say) the Alien Visitations. People constantly asking where they have been seen, have they ever landed, where might we spot them? Ask and ye shall receive! So was born the 'Ye Olde UFO Store'. Where you can buy all things aliens, hear stories and even set yourself up for a UFO Sighting Adventure, combing the desert at night with your guide looking for ETs or visiting 'UFO Hot Spots'. Their website is loaded with photos of swirling orbs captured on film! There's a lot, and I mean a lot of energy and unseen beings in Sedona among the Red Rocks, thousands of years of inhabitants will leave a mark on land like that, I don't feel that they are all alien, might want to take a Medium with you just so you know who you're hanging out with tho.
This shop inspires you to do something new, to venture out there, to take a walk to the Twilight Zone (no vampires here, just Greys). This place challenges you to open your mind to the possibly that you are not the only living, breathing, moving being in the Universe. I myself have always believed that 'we are not alone'. I'm not that arrogant, but alas, some are. So if the 'Ye Olde UFO Store' can get your curiosity going, make you think outside the 'box', then this was a business venture well conceived. The owners 'believe' and are more than happy to help you expand your Universe.
Take a hike into the desert in the dead of night, with the guide who looks mysteriously like Fox Mulder, your camera ready, your eyes wide open and at the end of the trail you just might see ET phoning home or Area 51 for back up!
If you you have an ET story of your own, I'd like to hear it.
