You are what you write. Illusion and Reality...I reside in between. Where are you?
UNDERSTAND THAT REDIRECTING CIVILIZATION is a major undertaking. You can write volumes about it and who will listen? But the energy that goes for that purpose cannot be withdrawn. You know that.|
|These days are the last tiny burps of 2018... What do we face next year, crashing down on us at hyper speed? I included a quote from one of my poems...
Paired off like sparring hens,
In a strawless nest,
The egg broken at first thrust,
Leaving yoke to mix with dirt,
Dirt-life drains under mindless feet,
Knowledge of its passing,
A mystery pondered by others,
Faraway on a mountain top,
Tiny figures at the opposite end of the telescope,
Twisting for focus,
Bent in concentration,
They never considered the force of tiny minds,
Full of hate-fear-doubt,
The disbelief of their downfall,
Courses into every heart,
With stinging frayed petulance (evil).
(From The Past of Vision)
...So do you think it fits our world at this moment? I didn't mean for the blog to be so gloomy, but over the past two days, listening to the party and dinner conversations of expatriates in Belize, I kind of felt this way this morning.
|LIVING IN BELIZE
Here's the world I live in Belize, Central America: This is partly a 3rd world country. We come into a clash of culture when the big guys like Amex say you cannot have a post office box or forwarding address for your Home Address. Now in this beautiful, tropical piece of the Caribbean, we can have wonderful, expensive houses, but there is NO MAIL DELIVERY. We have post office boxes to receive mail. Or go to the local FEDEX or similar service for very expensive packages and deal with customs declarations and inspection fees, etc.
To correct a situation you call the big guy and get a talking computer, "Please enter your ###number and your dog's name and the 3-digit number...you get the idea. "I'm sorry, I did not understand that statement. Please say again or press # to..." It takes a long time to reach a real living person who has you repeat all that information again before they can hear your simple problem that is not on the 'Press a # List.'
After hearing the simple problem you are told to "Please hold." The same elevator music lulls your mind while your phone minutes evaporate. When the nice lady comes back, everything is repeated again to confirm. The boiler-plate thank you is a relief because the call is finally ending. I know many people have this same experience, yes?
Fact: I have never found a real bookstore in Belize. I don't think anyone reads novels. I noticed that school books usually come in big containers from a generous church group in Canada or the US. There are some libraries, but the fiction sections are sparse. The most books are used book racks in a restaurant frequented by Gringos with English, French and German paperbacks. Or like our Marina office has a shelf of traded books. The English speakers are always trading books. I have a full set of Game of Thrones---very popular!
Another oddness is television. We have a Canadian service. So it's like living in Toronto or from the US it's Buffalo or Detroit. The most I hear of local news is people talking about what they've seen on Face Book. The newspapers are filled with stories from the police reports and the Courts. Murder, rape, robberies, car crashes. Each political party has a pro-newspaper. The government is like all governments...enough said.
The banks seem to write almost everything by hand. The lines are long and slow. There is a 23+ day hold on an out-of-country check.
Gasoline is about $11+ dollars a gallon. I'm not complaining, that's just how it is here. Some expatriates get crazy with all the different rules...so they leave. Going across to Mexico is as close to the big civilization/culture that I want to be. Walmart is scary.
The temperature averages around 80+ degrees. The wind off the ocean is heaven, because it means no bugs. The yard is filled with orchids and all kinds of blooming trees. Outside the fences it's sort of jungle. The lagoon is about 50 yards from the house. There is a two-day a week housekeeper who cleans all the floors and windows & kitchen and baths, etc. The gardener works four days a week. It's not my house, I just take care of it with my partner and the owner, an international midwife is off catching babies and teaching classes in other countries or other parts of Belize. Oh, there is a swimming pool that we take care of as well.
We have a 45' sailboat (the yacht), which is in dry dock having hull refinished. That's in a commercial marina in Belize City. It's a bit of a money-drain but lovey to sail. Our friends are from all around the world and that part is a great experience. I'd say, not bad for a poorish old person!
I'm finishing my third novel with the help of WYRM Group. And being able to do that while living in Central America is the wonder of the Internet.
Best to all..., >>>iggy
|Caught these words this morning. They're too good to not share... >>>iggy
CREATE is a word that should be oceanic. It should shake and blow apart the pillars of the smug boredom of the soul.
CREATE is about what the individual does when he is on fire and doesn’t care about concealing it. It’s about what the individual invents when he has thrown off the false front that is slowly strangling him.
CREATE is about the end of mindless postponement. It’s about what happens when you burn up the pretty and petty little obsessions. It’s about emerging from the empty suit and empty machine of society that goes around and around and sucks away the vital bloodstream.
Excerpt from: The universal Rebel and the psy-op to neuter him by Jon Rappoport (Nov.14 )
On WDC we have the word used as: Create New Item.

Prompt: "I think I fell in love with words before I fell in love with music." Taylor Swift Write anything you want about this.
When I leaned to read, I read everything and was taken to the library every week to get more books. But at the same time I had piano lessons (for 7 years) and strugged through all the exercise books and worked on the mathematics of Bach and the heavy emotion of Beethoven. I had older cousins who played piano really well. I spent hours siting beside them as they did the pop music of the 1940's and 50's. I loved music and words, and always have, thanks to my mother's encouragement. My dad hated the eternal practicing. I learned to practice when he was not home.
Songs need words and there is an unlimited variety, but I do like to understand the words when they are sung. I'm also partial to the music having some sort of melody. There are singers and music that only produce noise.

Last week Tropical Storm Harvey went directly over the house where I am living in Belize with about five minutes of medium rain and a tiny burst of wind. Then it was gone off to the northwest across the Yucatan and into the Gulf of Mexico. Everyone said it was finished, dissolved.
The next thing we hear it is a gigantic hurricane becoming a Catagory-4 aimed at Texas. I don't think anyone was really prepared for the speed of that development. The damage there is beyond calculations.
My question, which probably will never have an answer is:
WHY would they establish a huge city on a flood plain a few feet above sea level? I've seen Amsterdam and Rotterdam. They adapted with massive protective walls and systems. I've seen Venice struggling with their city. In reality, Houston is no different, only I guess 'they' ignored the problem. The 'they' who made those decisions are long gone. It would take a lot of research to track that down.
If it was deliberate, look for who will benefit. They say that elements of the government do have some control over the weather. If they do, then other organizations can do the same for good or bad agendas.
Now the preppers are the smart ones. Learn from their example. In other words, you have to take care of yourself and your family.
I'd head for the hills! >>>iggy
Prompt: “When we protect ourselves so we won't feel pain, that protection becomes like an armor that imprisons the softness of the heart.” ----Pema Chödrön, When Things Fall Apart
Think about this: Currently more than a million children are on psychiatric drugs in America
274,804 of them are younger than a year old.
370,778 are toddlers aged two to three
4,130,340 kids aged 6 to 12 are on some kind of psychiatric drug.
(Numbers from Citizens Commission on Human Rights
Who is protecting these children from what kind of pain? And how will it effect them when they become adults? Do they have any feelings of their own left? Look at the number and figure doctor visit fees, medication costs, and how much profit is involved?
How many of their parents are protecting themselves with medications for armor?
PROMPT: Do you believe, in times of indecision and/or stress, that your dreams are trying to tell you something with regards to your worries? Why or why not?
On August 10: I dreamed: The secret boss allowed me to have his financial files and to hide them. No one knows his worth or plans. He has decided to trust me. I like him and will be loyal. There are others badly wanting to know about him. I think nice offices, but I work in a warehouse like facility.
On August 11: I dreamed about a Jaguar that adopted me and lived with me.
ignored everyone else. Licked my face, slept close had her own sleep pad.
Didn't mind the car, truck or van. stayed close to me when away from home.
She has no name just a presence that is recognized.
On August 14: I dreamed: about forming small councils to send representatives to the court...and then to State. It was the same as the Iroquois style of democracy. Then I had to find the Elders.
On August 15: I dreamed about an orange mud ball caught under my foot. It was bigger than a baseball. It stuck to the sole of my shoe.
It goes on like this. The dreams are alway very realistic and logical when they're happening. And I'm not stressed with ease of sleeping always. The Jaguar was very loving. I was stressed to find the Elders, and I don't know why the orange mud ball stuck to me. I did hide the bosses files, but I can't remember where.

Prompt: Lies, everyone tells them some people are better liars than others... or are they?
An institutionalized lie is highly resistant to truth.
Think about it. --- We have lived (or died) with lies about Cancer, AIDS, 9/11, Elections, the Civil War, the First World War, the Second World War, the Afghan War, the Iraq War, the Syria Civil War, and on and on...
The untruths are repeated, reinforced, enhanced and whispered, announced, broadcast so many millions of times by the governments, rulers, politicians and institutions that steer and order the history writers, the Media, the script writers, the paid experts---that the truths are buried and distorted forever.
However, now in 2017 we see and hear a resounding clash between:
TRUTH and LIES leaving everyone confused and full of anxiety. Some of the best lies have a dark side that take a very bright light to expose. And would folks recognize the truth if they weren't blinded by the darkness or the illumination?
Where's the damn switch? I'd like to see the BEST TRUTH!
Peace and love...>>>iggy
“When you tear out a man's tongue, you are not proving him a liar; you're only telling the world that you fear what he might say.”
---George R.R. Martin
Johnny Depp, the brilliant actor, has what is being called "A crumbling career." Last December, before the May 2017 release of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, Forbes named Depp the most overpaid actor for a second straight year as films such as Alice Through the Looking Glass and Mortdecai did not fare well.
Now I think, sometimes Mr. Depp chooses films to do that are perhaps creative or artistic, but not big box-office draws like the Pirates films. He could get personal satisfaction from helping create the projects. However, he has been knocked off the Forbes highest paid actors list for the first time in years amid financial woes. Ordinarily Depp appears in the top five of that list.
His business managers describe him as being guilty of 'lavish spending habits.' To adjust, Johnny has been selling a collection of condos in Los Angeles that he owns - last week finalising the sale of the fourth of the five luxury apartments.
None of this diminishes Johnny Depp's talent, so I guess he needs to stop playing and get back to doing more wonderful films.
Success ain't what it's cracked up to be...

Prompt: "Unique and different is the new generation of beautiful-You don't have to be like everybody else. In fact, I don't think you should." Taylor Swift How do you feel about this quote?
That's an unanswerable question. It's part of human genetics, our DNA. Seeking a mate is instinctive and drives that recognition on a very primary level.
Beyond that the the industry of mass media shapes and steers the desires and behavior of almost everyone toward a profit-driven theme.
I particuarly note all the female newscasters (opinion speakers) on Fox News. They all are a television makeup artist's dream---the eyes, the eyelashes, the cheekbones, the skin tones so finely shaded. Artificial? Yes! Does that Beauty belong on a news program. Their confidence says they think so, Are you distracted by this?
There is the world of celebrity fashion and makeup. That would be where you'd find Taylor Swift and all the other thousnds of actors, singers and entertainers whose images flash across our screens everyday. Enormous amounts of money and investment go into producing those images. They don't really look like that. The makeup 'face' is carefully reproduced daily to maintain the image.
I know because I worked as a makeup artist in Hollywood and faced some of those folks at 4:00AM when they arrived for makeup and wardrobe. They mostly were just plain, ordinary folks arriving for work, needing more sleep and struggling to learn scripts or lyrics. Of course they had to close their eyes while we did our magic. And then the look at a mirror to reassure that the image looked just like yesterday. Believe me, some were very particular. The same went for the hairdressers.
I did lots of men's makeup---talk about subtle. It had to look natural and not like makeup. Then there is men's hair. Many are balding or receeding. Hair pieces and wigs were a hidden secret that had to be maintained. And required constant attention during shooting. Plus the hairpieces required maintaining because they're very expensive.
So---what you see is seldom real beauty. There are some humans, both women and men who are breathtakeingly beautiful with no help. Your jaw drops and you can't take your eyes off them. Isn't it amazing that we see that without anyone telling us.
It's in your DNA....enjoy... ...iggy
Prompt: “Every lie holds one great truth?”
What do you think that truth may be?
How do you know it's a lie if you do not know the truth?
The truth of a lie is that it is a deception.
The truth of a lie is that it is a protection of your crime.
The truth of a lie is that it is a denial of your love.
The truth of a lie is that you are denied knowing
Lies can be very dark and black.
Lies are often sweet and pretty.
We live in a world of lies,
In what we see,
From what we hear,
The only escape is to know the truth!
Do you know? >>>iggy
