the Incredible Shrinking Old Men! [and women]

the Incredible Shrinking Old Men! [and women]


I had an interesting experience today.
I had the new bus schedule, the city is completely changing all the bus routes in a few weeks. I wanted to give it a newcomer to my senior home for independent living, a 83 year old very intelligent man who just moved in last week.
when i gave him the bus schedule, he said he had the new one already and that this new schedule was going to make it hard for him to see his doctor regularly. he then ranted about how the new routes were worse under this new route pattern.
he went on some more about the cost of living goes up and the poor get poorer. and on. and on, then someone else down the hall wanted some help: good excuse to leave.

all that I could do is to talk back to him in his own ideas and to agree. I could not turn him "away" from his criticness, I could not find any words to "overturn" his reasons for pessimism.

*then* i see now why i "had' to agree with him, it is the only thing that i can *POSSIBLY* say to him!!

Here is an analogy to explain why I could not say something optimistic to him: a man who is 40 has his sheet of paper with his drawings on it: his life. then as he gets to be 50 or so, "someone" snips off a corner or two from the sheet, including some of his life-art. by 60 years old, the sheet begins to get ever the smaller and smaller. *now* is the Time to be able to have some Art that is off the sheet, the Art that will stay with you for eternity. Now is the time to begin to grow your soul, to know that there is more to life than in just living materially.

this man has no "3-D" artwork, comparatively. all that he sees is his analogy, "the dollar is shrinking right before my eyes, it buys less and less. he is angry. Very Angry. his very life is being cut away by old age and his less flexible mind. he sees the future in that senile lady across the hall or that man down the hall with a triple heart bypass, a few years older than he and this other heart-man will soon live in a nursing home, his life-sheet is now the size of a mail stamp!

like a rat in a Press, as the walls of old age close in, he gets every the angry, if extroverted, or ever the depressed if introverted.

This one man, see, has no spiritual life. Nothing "off the sheet". Little of soul, nothing of Spirit. Like the Joke I read of a rich materialist man dying and going to heaven and the angels showed to him his heavenly home, a SHACK. he was angry. the angels then told him, "but you did not send us up any lumber to build your home with"!

No lumber.

No Jesus. no transcendence. Little Love-feelings, little Understandings in spite of his IQ of 140.

---And why cannot I, with an older soul, "help" him or even not be able to respond against his anger?

Simple: whatever I would say, would mean nothing to him, utterly so. I cannot even utter the christian Dogma platitudes to him. many many 'intelligent" people are like this, in a younger person, the vibration is, "cynicism, sarcasm"! I would talk like a China-man in a world of English-only people. What could i say that he even could deny against?!
this is probably the "bitter old man", someone ranting with rage as he slowly goes down the drain!

I wish there was a way, like in the Greek Mysteries, where a person could experience a "out of body experience" so that they would *know* that there is a good life after death. Or, to at least have a Real Experience of the Mystical Spirit, to *know* that there is more to life than our material world. At least even the Christians have *Faith* that they are saved and are to go to heaven!

And also to know that their soul can still grow even if they are 99 years old!
So I feel bad that i can only reply kind to kind, to talk of the shrinking money and how "everything is going to pieces, nowadays"! I *could*, i guess, turn right angles to him and then hold up my copy of "war And Peace" and then begin to recite this book to the air! the "disconnect" to him would be utter. This is what talking about anything with Soul or Spirit is, to him and to most of the other people.

the Younger people? they are just in the Innocence of their Youth, they do not see their life-sheet being shrunk, they are young and full of dreams that might still be done, even if they are only material dreams. there is no future for this older man except living in a nursing home being 2 years old and dependant upon everyone for *everything*! no more dreams.

coming across the flatlands

coming across the flatlands
looking to the west from the 8th floor landing, the land looks flat and storms can be seen for miles and miles. Usually they die out before they come to here, these early summer showers are so short in duration before they die of old age. This almost like living on the Prairies, instead of in Tallahassee, Florida. I know people who carry an umbrella with them every single day of the week even if there is not a cloud in the sky! They live indoors, work indoors and have no weather knowledge.

We are together for Eternity

We are together for Eternity
We are together for Eternity. A large cumulus cloud to the west of my building, here in Tallahassee.
Looks a bit like of a man pointing to Tomorrow with his wife by his side. He and She enjoying the heavens.
There are entire books devoted to shapes in the clouds. Flickr groups too. Amazing what can be seen and these Productions only last for minutes.

the stretched out storm!

the stretched out storm!
a small thunderstorm cloud reaches into the upper atmosphere and the winds aloft are *very* strong and thus the top is strewn and pulled downwind, to the behind of where I stand.
I noticed this last year often here in the summer. Unusual for Tallahassee in the summer, at 30 degrees North. This means that the jet stream is very very active and at the end of June this is not usual at all, here! Blame it on "la Nina", blame it on sunspots or global warming, or maybe just on "2011/12 the weather is just plain weird all over the world!
Will be no hurricanes this year in the southeast USA if this pattern continues. "Dry" is the Word, I guess, for the south and for several more years to come.

the set has maybe 30 to 40 pictures of this monestary

 
 
Holy Trinity Monastery is a male monastic community under the auspices of the Synod of Bishops of the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad. We are dedicated to a life of prayer and obedience according to the pre-revoluntionary monastic tradition. We draw our origins from the Pochaev Lavra of St. Job of Pochaev in Southern Ukraine when monks fled from Pochaev in the face of the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917. As descendants of the Lavra of Pochaev, we continue the mission established by St. Job in the 15th century to publish books for the edification and protection of the faithful. Within the monastery is located a studio and school of Russian iconography conducted by disciples of master iconographer Fr. Cyprian (Pijoff). Also situated within the monastic community is Holy Trinity Orthodox Seminary, with young men from around the world training for the holy priesthood and ministry within our Church. Consisting of impressive buildings and an other-worldly way of life, Holy Trinity Monastery is a source of spiritual nourishment and support for the Orthodox Church. 
============
 
This monestary was where the Orthodox church, more or less in exile under Communism, maintained the traditions and crafts and the way of life, this is the largest Orthodox monestary outside of Russia.

to those who will do WW III

to those who will do World War 3, I dedicate this post.

To those who begin this war and to those who will fight in it and to those who will be the participants in it, as "victims": meaning, most of us, the whole human race!
[This is assuming that what I See coming, what my Seer friends have seen, and from what I have read of other psychics and prophets seeing the same outcome, to happen within  a few months to a number of short years away!]

WW III.
---the last thing any "spiritual" person might imagine should happen to the human race.  There is even talk amoungst the seers that if anyone is caught at ground zero, in a nuclear blast, the intense radiation will actually go "up" into the etheric levels and strip away part of the soul's life memories from that life lived up until this blast!  The soul returns nearly empty handed, of life experiences!
  The last thing that I would want, in any event.  WW III.

But the "Lord", [to give the great overspirit a name] might have Ideas of His Own, for the immediate future of the human race and its mass Ascension into spirit!

There is one humbling thing that I have to accept.  that most of the human race is "baby soul".  Even America is made up of mostly young souls and mature souls.  there are *very* few old souls here, at least in comparison to everyone else.
In other words, a *whole* lot of second graders and a few third graders and only a very few 3rd...4th...and higher grades, incarnated.
"War" might indeed be the language of these baby and young souls and that they NEED to act out what is best for them, you cannot skip a grade in childhood without crippling the development of the child and I feel that this holds for the stages of life for souls too.
    Thus "economic capitalism with its 'rape" of the environment" is the Curriculum curve lesson for probably 80% of the souls here!  they have to learn by doing.

I am guessing that these very old souls are here to be able to experience the earth plane so that they can help the arriving souls, when everyone comes to the afterlife.  Got to "be here, done that" in order to learn what the earthplane is like.  thousands and thousands of years of Counseling and consoling aid will be done, by these old souls, after they too, die.

Thus I forgive the human race if 'everyone" chooses to go via WW III.

And this war could only be a few years off, too.

On a practical note: you Survivors who move way out into the country to Survive, please be aware that RADIATION might happen, ala nuclear bombs.  think: "civil defense booklet on surviving radiation"!   be sure to have a Geiger counter or another type of radiation detector with you and to have water and food that can be shielded from fallout!

Looking out of my 4th floor west window at a sunset sun underlighting an anvil cloud of a thunderstorm off in the distance. Rained a few hours earlier, was 105 degrees this day, here in Tallahassee, Florida!

eager clouds growing to become rainclouds

eager clouds growing to become rainclouds
yes, a hole in the clouds showing cumulus growing to try to become rainmakers. Does not take much to rain these clouds. An inch can fall from these tropical rainclouds, and two blocks away only three drops fall.

my Vision of maybe WW III beginning around 2021 !!

http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y220/freestonew/wwIII.png


[drawing]



hi all.



I was thinking, the other day, about "that" dream of a year ago. In this dream I was taken in spirit to see a kind of "astral for-runner" of a strange scene. two ladies were fighting each other in a courtyard with a black column of smoke rising 300 feet into the air, behind them. Next to these ladies a flatscreen TV had a news broadcast where the anchorman was talking about the conflict between "Canadamountreal" and "Russiamountreal" leading to WW III. Someone yells out that two of our three chances were missed [for ww III to happen] and now *this* chance coming, in ten years, will be the last chance to stop this war from happening!



Yesterday I realized that from space, a world war with Russia would *Look* to have Canada and the USSR sending missiles over the pole. Canada vs Russia. USA has, what, 6000 missiles, and Russia might have 8000 nuclear missiles, the numbers change from time to time.



I had not put this all together until last week when I looked at the three bassette generations, Uncle, my father, and me, we "did" many important life things in 27 year cycles and Dudley, my father, was born in 1914. ww I. I was born in 1941, 27 years later.... ww II.

[the 27 year cycles are not exact, of course, often they fall short of 27 years by several months.]



the next 27 year point was about 1968.

The Untold Story of a Soviet Submarine's Nuclear Strike Attempt on the U.S.



Early in 1968 a nuclear-armed Soviet submarine sank in the waters off Hawaii, hundreds of miles closer to American shores than it should have been.



[/quote]

---we all came SOOOO close to nuclear ww III, then!

[this is the first "Point" of exit, i feel; war did not happen.]



the next 27 year point was about 1995.



the Bible code people saw that 1996 was to begin ww III!

http://www.muphin.net/biblecode/08.htm

[quote]



Three thousand years ago it had predicted that in July 1996 Netanyahu would go to Amman. If the Bible code was right about that, also right about the predicted "atomic holocaust," the "holocaust of Israel," and the "World War."

[/quote]



---the *SECOND* missed ww III chance point. !!



ah, the next opening is about 2020 to 2023!



AND.

the great depression began October 1929. applying the 27 year cycles again, you eventually get 2010 !!



BINGO!!



*this* is Ominous, sports fans.

here we have two 27-year cycles running in tandem and now again there is a great depression and within 10 to 11 more years ww III will break out, unless this third and last "chance" passes by!



History repeats for those who cannot alter it.

the weather in the 1930s, many many records for heat, cold drought, still stand today and this is the Time of the great dust bowel. does not anyone SEE the cycles of History?

my father did, he had cycle books way back in the 1950s, he would be warning people today about the oncoming great war, the third war that the Hopi warn of!!

within a year or so, Someone will suggest the CCC camps for the unemployed! history will grind on, in its repeats.



the hell of this is by the time this war gets nearer, everyone will "want" this war and even liberal lefties will Enlist and wave the us flag!

the collective Lemming-mass of humanity will evoke this war to cleanse the depression away.



however....12,000 to 15,000 nuclear missiles will give to the world "rabbits"! 6000 years from now there might be 300 kinds of rabbits and nothing else alive in the mammal kingdom, rabbits that fly, swim, even begin to walk upright. And they will glow in the dark too, the radiation, you know....!!



I enclose my drawing.



This is a GOOD thing to pray about. I cannot imagine Spirit permitting such a war, but then again it will be us that will begin it, in free will, but maybe not in free will as those who do not Understand will be a slave to the wheels of history-aturning!



ten years [2011] and counting......

the Arch of the hailstorm

the Arch of the hailstorm
A small thunderstorm to the immediate west of Tallahassee. That "Arch" is where, in a few minutes, hail began to fall, to the west, hail stopped a baseball game at the University. If the clouds have a "bluegreen" tint to them, watch out, hail is in these clouds along with heavy rain.

In this city there hardly is NO light rain, during the summer rain season, one can get drenched to the skin within seconds just running to your car! Then three blocks away there might be only a few drops fall.

In a normal year, here in Tallahassee, each of the four summer months might see from 4 to 15 inches of rain, over 85 thunderstom days here!

Been dry of late, no cloud pictures from me, no clouds!
Maybe this will change now.

A real Mortar and Pestle! A not very large one, I bought this at the New Leaf Market, here in tallahassee. Looks nice.
They still make these.
Made in China, of course.

Even if I do not use this, still looks nice. I "am an Alchemist now"!
