the Path

the Path, originally uploaded by freestone.

the Path
a small path leading to another street. lots of spanish moss, many trees are evergreen, here in tallahassee, even in winter.

a mysterious path, here in the subtropics, the mystery of what is at the other end?!

This city of Tallahassee, florida,usa, has many many paths and trails just like of this one! The smallest patch of woods is a jungle, I could almost imagine a 1880 girl with a hoop skirt, playing with a wooden hoop, coming down this path!
[In 1960, I *DID* look behind an old southern tallahassee mansion to see a 10 year old girl wearing an 1880 hoop skirt; she was playing with a wooden hoop, rolling it with a stick!! For years I thought that I had seen a ghost, then last month I met the lady who *was* that girl!! She was walking into this same old house and I told her the story and she said that when she was 10 years old, she would get out of the closet, the costumes that were used for the 1960 city festival, and then she would play with a skirt hoop, wearing some of these skirts from the 1880s!]
So where does this path lead? The lush growth could Evoke all sorts of possibilities!

Just a view of a Tallahassee street near where I live. Temp must be about 75 degrees, here on January's end! Late afternoon. The red-pink flowers are "Azaleas". If you look carefully, there are more flowers hidden in the greenery.

Thus a very pretty end-of-January day, at latitude 30 north. Puffy little cumulus clouds and lots and lots of sun!

There is an element of spookyness with this photo as if you look at the very top of that flagpole-thing, then at the right of it, the blob og cirrus clouds seem to spell out theree letters!!
There, to me, looks to be an "N" at the end of row, I cannot "make out" the other two seeming-patches that could look to be letters!
---anyone else see letters to the left of the "N"?!

who has the most games?

thanks everyone for answering this little "poll"!

[I asked this question, "WHO HAS THE MOST GAMES IN THEIR COLLECTION, COMPUTER OR CONSOLE", in the google usenet group, "comp.rpg".

I looked in the googlegroups search and yes i asked this question in 2001, about this time of year, 34 people replied


I found that there were many people who had 500...800...even approaching the 2400+
that someone has!

there are more systems today to buy for.
also there are some "avenues" that exist today for people to find and to buy old systems, like of ebay.

I heard just yeaterday, as i walked out of a E B store with four more games, that soon gamestop, who owns now Electronics Boutique, will "combine for real' the two stores, close one chain altogether.

then i read that gamestop itself is not doing too too good.
[the Day may come when stores like Best Buy will be the only storefronts that will sell games, and NO USED GAMES!
[rumor: the ps3 might have a chip in it where any game you buy can only be played *on* that ps3! once installed, that game can never play on any other ps3!!

*this* fuels, for me, s slight bit of "parinoia", that "I better git it now or when i want to play it, it will be Gone except for $80 on Ebay!

This here freestone "backs off" from his collection a moment to try to remember what I actually have.

snes... 1
n64.... 8
xbox... 40
ps1... 50
ps2.. 90
computer 1 40 [dos and old windows pre-directx]
computer 2 100 [plus or minus, not counting burned cds/floppies from the internet!]
250 games, more or less!

[lets not talk about the 2 gigs of neverwinter modules on my pc! One of them, TORTURED HEARTS by basseman, advertises 100+ hours!!]

my goodness, I am nearly "last" on the List.

I *feel* like i have a lot of games as I live in an efficentcy apartment, basicly one room with a closet, very small, and a kitchen nook.
[Oh the wonders of Industial shelving!]

I live in a senior center with 161 other people, one or two people to a room/apt.
Got to be 62 to get in, many here are in their 80s. there are several here who go to play tennis at the tennis club, at 80 to 85 years old.
I "hear" that there is one lady who has a playstation and plays games, i do not know who she is. I did meet a lady who has a snes and she plays the puzzle type of games little Tetris or jewels.

I am getting ready to begin the Dragon Quest VIII on the ps2 and the Arx fatalis on the xbox.

I may well die of old age before i finish them all...

and often i do NOT finish a game, just like that Tsungui Atonement that i took off the ps2 just yeaterday, i could not win that final boos battle even at level 60, and it *was* apparent that i needed to be at level, say, 90, to beat him, which means hours and hours and hours and hours and hours just fighting 6 same monters over and over again! I had to take off Final fantasy 8 for the same reason.
But i play games for the Imaginational value, more than of winning! to experience worlds, to experience realities beyond the everyday. Thus i like "immersive" first and third person games best.
also amazing what a 27inch good tv with Component connections can do for games!
Must be even more Incredible to own a huge theater system.

I always liked the science fiction and fantasy stories as a kid, even.....

so...never ever too too old for games.....I am 64.
why one of the clerks at EBs, last month or so, told me that he knows of a 80 year old man who plays rpgs! he was a computer progammer during the 50s for one of those computers that needed a whole wing of a building just to sit there and run!

A FSU University business fraturnity
mural, painted by the menbers, in front of their chapter House, the House is hidden behind the bush, up the hill. Each "coal" has a name on it, a member of this fraternity. on the other site of the steps at the right of the photo, the wall continues. there is a row of diamonds there, with also the names of the members on them, in duplicate from this panel shown.

"diamonds in the rough"

---the name of the mural, seen where the coal miner is digging.
Moral: the members who just joined are Diamonds in the rough, freshmen business majors and they are just "coal", which is carbon, like diamonds. Then after the "pressure" of years of college, years of fraternity life, each will be "refined" into a beautiful Diamond!

in a psychic forum, someone wrote about how all of her life she had visions of end times and earthchanges, but "where are they"?! Her lament is below, then my reply is added.

[quote="XXXXX Like many of you on this board and elsewhere, I have believed- no, I have known for most of my life that humanity was on the cusp of some extraordinary change/s. With each passing year, my sense of this coming "event" or chain of events grew stronger. I would say that, on some level, I have known this was coming for my entire life but I only

This has been so much a part of the fabric of my life, my consciousness that it is very difficult to ask, even faceciously, if I have been deluded in my belief that a change was upon us. But I am being quite serious here. I feel that something, whatever "it" was supposed to be, should have happened by now.

But it has not. We're all still here. Nothing has changed.

So- seriously- have we been suffering from some shared delusion? Or have Higher forces interfered with what might have been our fate, and postponed or cancelled transformative events? Or are they imminent?


HI X...., hi all...

here is one quote in its entirety, from a post a way back

a few years ago, I wrote:

over the years i have been given a number of earthchange visions where
terrible things are going to occur to the earth and to us all on it.
In 1995 or so, i was given a "final" vision conerning these endtimic
earthchanges.....that these upheavals were[are] going to be DELAYED
or even canceled!
In shortened form, here it is...

In about the fall of 1995, i had a dream vision.
I went to my high school, to my 1960 Upstate new York Home
Town, with my graduating class of 29 students ---to have a class
reuinion there.
I met with them all, in a classroom and i had news for them!
I told them all something, a "something" that was coming THROUGH me as
if I were channeling this messege from a yet higher realm of Spirit.
I merely said,

"that the Lord, in his
mercy, has permitted an INDIAN SUMMER of the Spirit, to bless the earth,
at this
time. ..and that everyone should take great
advantage, of this time of
grace, to progress one's soul, and to get
right with spirit, and to
finish up all the creative acts, of one's
life, for the end times and earthchanges that were
to have now[1995] to have begun ----they are now to be DELAYED
or even to be lessened in severity when they DO come"!
then I woke up.



later...I began to think about this little vision.
MY! what a symbol!


in my childhood place of growing-up (where this
high school,is) there is this thing called, "Indian
it is where there is a whole stretch of mild
weather, in the late fall. Winter should have begun by now,
but there is a delay of this cold. There are perfect skies, warm
temperatures, calm winds, and the leaves are
so so colorful. The Mildness can
go on for a week, or even for several weeks.
it is a time for to get
ready for winter; and a time to enjoy the
beauty of upstate New York, at
its fine-est. the cold fronts are delayed,
for weeks...and it is
70 degrees every day, under clear blue skies...and all
the leaves fire
off their colors.....sometimes all at once!

so, from this dream maybe we will have a delay.

[from 1995!]

maybe two..maybe
ten......have a calm earth. no great mass upheavals.
it is a
time to "finish up the Schoolwork", of one's life-missions,
in our high school that is of our earthly Incarnations. We should make
amends with all people, to
forgive one and all, and to love...to be
creative..to reach out to Spirit, and
to let go of what you cannot take with you.

in the Northlands, if there is an Indian
Summer, that seems to go on,
seemingly, forever: watch out!!!
---for WHEN the arctic blast comes,
it will roar in BIG TIME, and freeze everything
dead, in one Withering, freezing, blast. 40 mph
winds and bitter
temperatures, with snow covering everything, will occur overnight!


during this time of
grace!---finish up high school,
prepare for college! Yes, College!-----the
new millenium-to-come; our "new Earth and the new heavens"!

And, you know, maybe we all will die of
death instead of earthchanges! we all may die of natural causes
instead of mass-dying in
some great Catastrophie of earth-upheaval. Each one of us, then,
if this delay is so, will have our very own personal rapture,
our own personal entrance into the Spirit world, as each of us
dies in accidents, or of sicknessess, or of all the other ways to die.

I have read Anne kirdwood's "channeling mother mary"
too, on this topic.

Many people have asked about the predictions given in Mary's Message to the World and why some haven't happened. In our "Mary's Message/Newsletter" June/July 1996 Issue #28, Mother Mary addressed this. (Note: Annie and Byron's section are not included with this.)

This is Mother Mary's section

My dear children,

It is with great joy, and with great love that I encourage you to stay committed as you bring forgiveness and unconditional love to your family. When you make a decision or commitment to love unconditionally, you join many who are learning to be at peace. Unconditional love will spread peace from heart to heart. Only by living in unconditional love, will humanity begin to change for the better. When humanity begins to shift and change its consciousness, then great benefits will be extended to everyone on earth.

Many people all over the world are praying for good, for a betterment to their situation and lives. The betterment may be for an end to war, or the end of a family squabble, or it could be for an improvement in their economic situation. More and more people are praying for good, and any prayer for good, improvement or betterment helps. Many people are taking actions and doing what they can to bring peace to their family. They have committed themselves to heal their addictions, and in so doing, they help humanity to change for the better. Many people are turning to their religions with new hope, and new fervor. Many people all over the world are seeking to change themselves for the better. Some are looking to better their economic situation, others are looking to better their educational life, and still others are seeking to better their life in general. Many people are growing, and seeking to grow spiritually. Many more are in prayer for the healing of society, and this world.

There is more awareness of how each of you affect others. More people are giving a thought of how they are living. In many places in the world there is now an awareness of how each person affects the planet and environment. No longer are people unaware of the plight of the planet. Everyone is aware of the many people who live on earth, who are sharing the air, water, and minerals. People are aware of each other, their affect on the planet, and their affect on the whole of humanity. Even the most uneducated understand that they can join with others and make great differences in their governments, their environment and in their plight. Many are taking action and are praying.

It is this awareness, these decisions and understanding that has benefitted the whole of humanity. The many disasters I told you about in past messages have been delayed and minimized to such an extent that a grace period has been granted humanity. You will find that the next few years will be given to you in order that you may be ready and prepared in total. You will have an extension of up to ten years. During the ten-year grace period, there will still be many storms and the weather will continue to be erratic and unusual. People will lose their life because of the weather and because of natural disaster. People will continue to comment on the weird and unusual weather. Scientists will give many explanations, but none will be able to tell you exactly what is happening with Mother Nature.

It is still my wish that all be prepared for any eventuality. It is my desire that you remain prepared for any emergency which could arise. When you remain prepared both spiritually and physically, you are ready to help others. You are ready to do your part to bring calmness and peace into chaotic situations. You are more than ready to be of service to mankind, and in so doing you are ready to be of service to God.

The year 2012 will be a year of monumental change, which will affect all areas of your life. Between now and this year of change, many people will develop new perceptions and new understandings. Many people will seek to find the inner healing of a peaceful soul. During this time, I call upon you, my aware children, to increase your prayers, so that this grace period will be extended to its fullest of fifteen years. Pray that the population of this world will be aware of the damages that war and violence has on the environment, and to the inner environment of the soul. Pray that a greater number of people will open their eyes to the joys of living a spirit-filled life while on earth. Pray that people will open their ears, and hear the call of Spirit for a soul healing. Pray that families will learn to live in peace, and that all family violence will be eradicated from the face of earth. Pray that children will become aware of their full potential. Pray for teachers and parents. Pray they will teach peace and unconditional love through the example of their personal life, and through the workings of the arts and sciences of mankind. You have done so well, my children. It is a new challenge that I bring. It is the challenge of living your life so that people who are blind can see the beauty of the soul. It is the challenge of teaching others how to love, by loving yourself and all people unconditionally. It's the challenge of being the best you were created to be, not from the outside in, but from the inside out. You are to love and forgive yourself unconditionally, and love and forgive your loved ones in this manner. You will extend the love of appreciation and acceptance to every person who comes into your life.

Don't be so much concerned with the outer things in your life; what you eat, what you drink, what you wear, or how you look. Be more concerned with what is eating at your heart, what you're keeping hidden from yourself, what addictions or obsessions may be wearing away your spirit connection, and of how you look in your heart of hearts. When you take care of the inside, your heart and mind, then and only then, the outer issues will take care of themselves. Pray to be loving at all times, not just the outer manifestations of a loving person, but the inner manifestations of a loving soul. People can put on the face of a loving person and hold the mask of sweetness in place for a time, but the truly loving heart will be seen in the midst of anger, and in the midst of great tribulation. A spirit-filled person will be calm in the face of chaos and will be brave and courageous when in great fear.

Be more vigilant now during this blessed period of grace. Let your inner guidance lead you in ways to heal the issues of the heart. Allow your spirit to guide you to live a life that is filled with the joy of unconditional love, the peace of a forgiving soul, and the beauty of willing spirit. I am loving you and am proud of you, my faithful children.

Mary, Mother of Jesus.

I, myself, freestone, have had several dreams that inferred something about my own Death, a death that did not occur, around the time of January 2005. i have apparently been given a personal delay.

my own feelings, in addition to my dream and mother mary's channeling, is that there are a LOT of terrible events "scheduled", but did not occur, for whatever reason, having to do with Grace, either directly, or indirectly, due to our own "advances", collectively.

---reminds me of that aricle about the man with AIDS who prepared to die, set up his whole future to get ready to die as the doctors gave to him something like of six to nine more months to live: his body looked like, probably, a truck ran over it, as the aids had ravished it greatly.
but New Drugs came out and now he faces that he could live for ten to 30 years yet!
"NOW what"? he asks, as he had planned for years that he would have no future, he did all of his legal work, his estate work, his goodbyes, his Acceptances, his forgivensess, but he still lives! his script was now over but his feet is glued to the Stage, the play still goes on but he has turned over that last page of his life-script!
now what?!!

I even suspect that many people who read this are in the same Boat: they were supposed to have died in some nameless disaster, but did not!
I even suspect this is why so so so many people are "waiting for the shoe to drop", and they feel like a kind of sword is hanging over their heads, as
they are thinking, "surely by NOW, the Great ???? is to occur, I set it up before i incarnated, to die by the hand of this ???? event"!!

the "thinking": "I set it up with the Masters/Jesus that i will die by this event, thus as this event has not occured and I *know* that it seems late, it will occur momentarily, surely surely it *will*, as the master told me so, and He has been my Guide for 10,000 years, thus my recurrant visions all of my life reflect this event to come, thus i post my dreams on this forum, etc,etc,"

and the Lord Giveth Grace, long after you were born, the Coach changes the play in midgame, the Coach changes the football pass strategy *after*
the Huddle and play has begun, the ball is passed back to the reciever:
*then* they find out that the Coach has changed what was planned, thus some players are now alone out in left field, their position is now useless!

but where oh where *IS* this event?!"

in the Mother Mary prediction, she says "up to ten years of grace", and
her message was given in 1996.



maybe you can now sort of live *like* you had already died! that is...live like you are now living in the "cleansing heavens" where incoming souls
clean up their lives, a bit, from the vestages of the earthlife that cannot go up with them into the real heavens, above. begin to live *like* you were already IN heaven, now!

How long?
how long will this indian summer last?

maybe we all will arrive in the new vibrational heavens, the New heavens, by Death, not by "earthchanges/wars"!

"death".....by merely dying of old age, accidents, etc, etc: the usual stuff of how each of us dies.
Only take 40 years to turn the field over, for us older readers.
by then much of humanity will be in heaven: no earthupheavals needed!

maybe then Indeed there will be no real major disasters except for the "local" ones, no astroids, no comets, only more of what you read about.

but maybe not!
maybe after a mild indian summer, winter "makes up for lost time" and then a major major "cold front comes", like in 2012, a 50 mile wide astroid wipes us away, or that the Sun will go Nova!

extra time.

my own dream, the angel says....as I see my life-path ahead of me, but just behind me i see a crack in the ground that runs at right angles to the path, and extends from horizen to horizen! A crack about two inches wide and runs way way down into the bedrock!
"the Separation has occurred, but has been stopped, and has been stopped for the foreseable future"!!
---this dream is describing my own death that did not occur, my own
"challange" that this here dream gives to me is that in a sense I have become "separated' from the physical plane, thus i might live on my 5th floor senior center for years and be even MORE the Autistic, more separated from "normal life"! as if i had begun the dying process, the separation of soul from body, but was stopped in mid-separation!

anyway....this is why i will probably see, in the years ahead, a lot of psychics with a pie-in-the-face, having few "hits" come true!


seen truly, but years later the event does not occur

why once I 'stumbled" through a astral school of some sort, for new arrived souls. i found the personal library of the cirriculum director, a room full of books just outside of his office, he was not in his office so that i could look freely around but i saw a calander memo book on the table.
This book was the "year-planner", day by day calander, for the year
[dream occured in late 2004!]

so here i was having a look at his day by day planning calendar, for this Master, i felt a bit like of that apprentice in that walt disney cartoon about the "Sorcerer's Apprentice" sneaking into the master's room to look up a spell on how to get the broom to fetch the water for the master's bath!

I found *this* entry
----January 27th 2005
One Age Rolls over into the next age [on this day]!!

no feeling, no expression, just like a master would write this, i guess...

so, sports fans. tis things like of these that give to me Hope, *or* fear!!

Someone in the prophecies forums
saw an angel with wings outstretched.
The one with id #449 looks like it has two angels with the wings spread!!! In the reddish part on the right!! Can you see them?[/quote].

Yes, I see the Wings. This *would* make this photo "Glorious" indeed!
I must have an uncounscious "eye" for this, seeing these and then taking the pictures!

For those people who would believe that angels would indeed manipulate the cloud matter to create images of "classical angels", I would say to them, that I have always considered this area of the country to be Blessed. But probably all places of the world have angels who Guard and bless the area under their influnces. The Bible, and other spiritual books, say that this is so, that angels watch over cities and countries, and of especially pretty areas of the world, and sacred places too!
However, it is even more possible, while angels exist, they would "wait" till a "random" angel-pattern exists, then they would quickly Inspire me to get my camera out!

The face

The face, originally uploaded by freestone.

---I have rewritten the "description" for this photo image of the face in the cloud, a face in a Katrina rainband. I thus post again.

the Face.

Today is january 9th, 2006, over four months since this photo was taken, now maybe I can comment with a bit of "time distance" upon it.

Hurricane Katrina was still about 100 miles out in the Gulf, about 120 miles from new Orleans. The time was about 3 Pm in the afternoon, on the 28th, a day before Katrina came ashore.
I had just walked out of my senior residence, having seen the currant radar map for the Gulf region, on their big screen television. I live in Tallahassee, Florida, usa, about 400 miles east of New Orleans. As I watched this radar depiction, I was very very impressed about how the outer rainbands extended very very far towards the east, and in fact the outermost rainband was positioned just to the southeast of Tallahassee. This spiral rainband system was over 500 miles wide!
I grabed my camera and rain out of the building, to watch this powerfull squall line come across the city, a small hurricane in and of itself! [see my tagged "Katrina" photos to see some of this rainband!]

I stood facing East, the rainband still had some clouds to the east. I suddenly noticed a very very quick forming cloud formation, it seemed just just boil out of the clouds in seconds so I quickly snapped a photo of this cloud.

It was only later that I saw that this whole cloud consisted of a head and of a Face!! This face is facing directly New Olreans! It is looking at new Orleans!
Faces in the clouds....

[there is a flickrgroup devoted to this type of phenomena.....
www.flickr.com/groups/45964373@N00/ ]

the Face of Katrina.

What do you make of this?!

What do *I* make of this face?!

---In some Flickr forum, I suggested that this face could even be of an "real"
Appearence, a Real Apparition, like of the Mother Mary appearences, say, of a god or of God Himself, and that He could be looking at New orleans either in Judgement or in Sympathy for the peoples who would have to live with the damage, or both. I then found out how severely a person could be Flammed, in a forum, as a result! Any mention of the "supernatural" is a Great Great Affront to most Intelligent people these days! photographers tend to be very inteligent and "practical", thus no "supernatural" is permitted, in their photos or in their lives!

I find it also interesting that
people of a more "primitive" culture, and times, would agree utterly that this face is an Appearence of a God, a god in their parthenon of Gods, usually the One that is in charge of storms.
whether be Zeus, Thor, Shiva, the ancient people would instantly know what the appearence of a face of their god, in a storm, would mean!

But the face is still "there"! I have not retouched or "photoshpped" this image in any way, you see what I saw, here. I have posted this image into several "spiritual" forums, and one lady even wrote back that she sees also additional images in these clouds directly under the face-cloud, images of angels and of even Jesus!!

maybe even katrina was "Caused", created and guided, to hit new orleans, and this "face" symbolizes the counscious, self-aware Entity, that is in charge of this storm.
[yet *another* bitter pill, not digestible, for the Intelligent modern person, to swallow!]

[I wonder what other "natural" disasters are likewise Caused, and driven?! The Bible has much much to say about the angels and archangels who are in charge of the Elements of nature: weather and the geology of the earth, for instance.]

Tis hard enough for the average person to accept "political conspiricies" for causing the major events, like of the 9/11 or of the Oklahoma bombing, but even the Intelligent "leftist" conspiricy people cannot handle the concept of a "Spiritual Conspiricy"
directing earthly events!!
[the Book of Revelation is not popular in certain circles of people, these days!]

So is this image of a random formation, looking like a face?
Is this image showing the face of a god, or of anArchangel, or of God, Himself, directing Katrina towards its target?!

*You* makes this Call, sports fans, you choose what this face means, to you. I will, here, just "offically" offer this photo in my photo album, as is. I will not "trumpet" any suggestion that this cloud *is* a face of God, I will leave this Interpetation to you, if you feel this is so.

[if you use it on your site, please let me know, i would like to see the site.

---and futher comments that I added at the bottom of the photopage...

So what have I seen and thought, in meditation, over this?

Here I was, taking a photo of an eastern Katrina rainband, and when I
looked later at the photo, ooooh Boy!!

When I took this photo, I felt a powerful feeling, about that tower of cloud, as if there really *was* a focus of effort, of an aware being, to create
this cloud.
Now, I note that the face is facing new Orleans, and facing that city even as the storm was 120 miles out to sea!
this "Zeus", was looking at the Coastline.

I tried to imagine what it would say to me, if I asked it to talk, be aware that this writing of what he might say is only my own imaginations!

---behold mankind, have ye Forgotten? Forgotten the Gods?! Once you all were aware that we controlled all of the weather, the volcanoes, the other Forces
that move the earth.
Yea, you have forgotten, in your intellectual arrogance, that there are Beings that are greater than you?! Beings that rule the elements, all of the four elements. Your professors of mind deny that we exist, and they worship Science instead.
Woe oh woe, oh mankind who thinks that his all-encompassing knowledge is all, whereas this knowledge is but only a handful of sand: the Sahara sand dunes stand before him, unseen, of realities that he does not comprehend.

Even the Gods have a Boss that they report to, I feel! When the Boss feels that It Is Time, the Orders go out!

[Inferred message]
---that all storms and disaster-causing
events are Caused, directed by Beings with an awareness, a consciousness.
Once, we Prayed to them, for help, for preventions, to bring rain, to melt snow, to stop an oncoming storm.
Alas, we have forgotten, all except a few of us; that the World now calls "superstitious spiritist religion" [voodoo or santaria] or "charismatic Christian"!

The Gods even "wear watches" and they know what time it is, the Time of the Mayan/aztec/toltec end-of-age.
[another "superstitious" something
from long long ago, no one currantly keeps track of the great pyramid timeclock either, and now this clock is about to strike the midnight moment!

the Gods now all turn to their tasks, the gyres and wheels of the clock ring the Hour!
--we might indeed be found wanting.

maybe now the Signal has been given, maybe others too have seen the Face, or the Body, or heard the Name, of a God, getting ready to now act.
maybe for me, at least, I have received the signal, that the Gods are now acting, if so, the avalanche has begun, of the great upheavals; soon, very very soon, we all could be living in refugee tents, all that are still alive, that is....p>

SANGOMA : My Odyssey Into the Spirit World of Africa
---James Hall

...a reviewer of this book, wrote, on
James Hall's odyssey into the spirit world of Africa makes nearly the entire output of today's spiritualists and self-help gurus- and much of the non-fiction of the past several decades- obsolete and insignificant. His biographical portrayal not only honors the spiritual and spiritualist's history as it is and was in African culture, a giant antithetical perspective to the Newtonian/Keynesian world of the West with our comfort in the worship of material objects and the acquisition of wealth from that perspective. It honors the spiritual world in total, and in so doing redeems the human spirit via the transformational path of action, self-awareness, enlightenment and active service to something greater than one self that could not by definition fit into comfortably established forms of sensibility and recognition. Sangoma can easily be compared to Herman Heese's Siddartha and the like, and should be on the booklists of every college course in literature as well as anthropolgy, religion and Africana studies. The only drawback, however accurate, was his depiction of many African natives as deceitful, in the context of his presence and study of the rituals of the Sangoma healer, without a further mentioning of the hostilities they suffered at the hands of the Western world before his arrival. An altogether wonderful and inspiring book that leaves you feeling like something beautiful in you has been powerfully affirmed.
[I once, years ago, read this book, I found his experiences very overwheming in that he experienced realities that most westerners have never ever seen!
Truly our western minds have before them a cup of Sand of knowledge, the whole of the sands of the Shahara desert lie unseen, and more importantly, unaknowledged as being "real", before them!

---a post to a list, about prophecy, spiritual wars, and why prophecies fail!

we live in dangerous times.

I recall the FAR JOURNEYS book, written by Robert Monroe, of the Monroe institute, the founder of a way for awake astral travel, where the
remote viewing people got much of their training from , I read.
In this book, he speaks of the "Gathering", where space crafts from all over the galaxy have come to earth to Watch, Monroe saw this with his own eyes, as the Master Guides took him to see this. For the earth is at a critical point in crisis and opportunity for a major major spiritual "upkick"
in evolution, and there were many many Probable outcomes. The ships
were there to watch and to even have meddling done, by some of the ship's crews! For this event is rare, in the galaxy, Monroe was told.

This travel was years ago, maybe in the late 1980s. Monroe has since died. One of the disciples, himself, OBEd, using the Method, to where these ships were stationed and they were still there!


Bob Monroe's second book, Far Journeys, was first published in 1985 and in it, in a chapter entitled, The Gathering, Bob described an area now called Focus 34/35 in the Exploration 27 program. According to Bob's 1985 description, Beings, or Intelligences, from many other locations within the physical universe are gathered together around the earth to witness what have come to be called, the Earth Changes. Much has been written by many other authors about these events, including dire predictions of horrific alterations to earth's land masses and populations. Each participant in the program has the opportunity to learn about these coming events via first hand, direct experience. Each comes to this opportunity with his or her own preconceived notions, which I'm certain color the experience. For readers not familiar with Bob's description of the Gathering it's excerpted from Far Journeys below. Bob was exploring Out of Body (OOB) and had been led to the Gathering by his INSPEC, someone he, years later, discovered was a future self. This excerpt is the first half of a nonphysical conversation between Monroe and his INSPEC, whose words are in parentheses and italics. The second half is reprinted later.
The following material is excerpted from the third book in my Exploring the Afterlife Series Voyages Into the Afterlife: Charting Unknown Territory. These experiences took place during a program at The Monroe Institute. called, Exploration 27.

"As a network of Aliens, or Other Home Worlders if you prefer. We each have our own home world in the physical universe. Each home world has sent a contingent here to observe the earth changes as you call them. We are located here where you've found us, in relatively close proximity to the earth. But we are just a small group of astronauts here on a mission from our home world. It's our understanding that one of the potential results of the earth changes, as you call them, is that earth will be joining our federation."

-----a very very very long article

but in the main, there are many paths this "Event' can take.
there are those who would like to Influence this event to go their way!
Git your finger in the Racial pie now and the whole future of the human race, for eternity, will have your Influence upon it!
and...You will be able to continue this influence forever as you are permanently connected.....This "super-meddler"!!

Thus the many "collectives" of minds, influenced by who knows what alien/spiritgroup/ in or out of the physical incarnation, trying to influence
the rest of us to become of their ways. If they win, the Race is theirs!

I know of at least two "over-meddler" spirit groups, surely represented by many alien civilizations that they have "won" over!

1...The Masters in spirit who believe that while God exists, he is not a conscious entity, "no one home", so that there is no One to pray to, might as well try to pray to "electricity", or to the sun's rays! The highest self-conscious beings are those in the Mind level of spirit, so that the highest that the soul can aspire to, individually is to the Mind level. The next level up is the God level all right, but there is no "self" there, God has no self and the god-level that is right above the Mind level is the Plane of
God's laws.
thus the souls aspire to become totally all Law, the mind should
follow trying to become "as" God, by being all Law determined.
The "chain of command" from this mind level, has the guides inspire this way of life, to live utterly as an Incarnation of God's law, downwards upon the earth, for ordinary mortals to live by.

just guess which group expresses this?!!

2...The Urantia book, however, speaks how there IS a level of God, a level above "mind" called the "plane of the creator Sons". These entities are the very first self-aware level, downwards from God.
Thus there IS a level above Mind, and part of God, that "has someone home" and can be prayed to and to receive a personal reply to, from even on earth.
the Vibration these sons work on, throughout the galaxy, is "creation, imagination, and
The creator son, the Urantia book says, that is directing the earthsphere evolution, is named "THE CHRIST"!
[enough said, you know the rest!]

there thus is a "war" in heaven and on earth, between those of these two major schools of evolution of humanity.

Is one "saved" by Law? [old testament-only]
Is one "Saved" by becoming one with the Christ...union = love?

a long "digression" here folks, a "near-hijack" of the thread, but to me,
this post delineates the "battlelines", thus the predictions of seerers and prophets reflect, not so much the "side" that the prophet is on, but the prophet sees the "troop's plans" on both sides of the battlelines.

but each of us are not mere pawns on a cosmic chessboard! Our choices will turn the tide, of this struggle. Not even what each of us DOES, but what each of us THINKS, and FEELS with our hearts, count maybe even the more!

take a "for instance"!
---suppose the "law" overspirit guides want a volcano to erupt in the middle of one enemy country. If this mountain erupts according to a plan, thousands of square miles are disrupted. The Objective: to install FEAR into the hearts of this country's people so that they will seek out the protection of God's Law, and bond with the Security of God's law, as interpreted by the leaders of the God's-law-people-groups, now incarnated upon the earth. A true Spiritual Terrorism, as any event induced from spirit, to induce fear, is indeed "Terrorism"!!
Naturally, there is not a shred of connection between an erupting volcano
and any political group from another country: the connection only exists in the Spirit realms!
The prophets and seers see the astral heavenly Plan. See the consequences. See the results.

however, in my analogy here, the "other side" will now also influence.
Thus the outcome of the eruption will depend upon how much LOVE and forgiveness each of us has, and has developed, after the eruption-plan is instituted. If all of the "virtues" and the ways of the Christ are made much more operative, in our daily lives, the actual eruption will not occur in the way that the Makers intended, from the mind level of Spirit planes!
maybe this volcano will erupt all right, but the article in the newspaper is only three inches in size; the volcano sends some lava down the slope and wipes out four farms, and that is ALL the damage that this eruption does!

People slightly then Diss the prophet who saw the event to be of a major eruption, an eruption that would supposed to have brought a great economic depression to this country and make people fearful so that they would follow God"s laws, and stop being so creative and adventurous in soul-growth matters! Of course this seer saw truly, but that this event was overwritten, not only by of a Greater Spirit, but because of the People in the country "repenting" as it were, by becoming more loving and more "spiritual".

people think that "God's judgment" is a negative thing, but the sword of judgment swings both ways, that balance of the scales *does* have the ability to tip in each direction!
Thus, "MERCY" is also a judgment!
a positive judgment, as in...."A certain high school student is accepted at Cornell university, a school that accepts only one out of ten people who
apply"! This student hoped, but thought that he might not have been qualified enough. But in this case, while that was literally so, Spirit
intervened, as Spirit sees that this kid could really really benefit, not only his own soul growth, by this admission to Cornell, but to benefit many many other people's lives after he begins his career. But this student
might only think that he had good fortune!!
just as with this volcano: a few local people will attend a farmer's funeral, and the geologists will thank certain geological processes that this eruption could have been larger in size but was not. No one will know
what terrible fate did not happen! But the seerer who saw this eruption, will still remember his images, however that is now the only place that these images reside, as the actual event is now over-written by another event.

Thus the timelines are littered with "failed" prophets!

I pray that many of these prophets, including some of my own visions, are also to become "failed events", by the same token!

may each of us Love, Imagine, be wise, and do good: do our part, us "grunts", the "footsoldiers",

in this here spiritual "war"!!

hi all...

Here is last night's dream, a dream where I went to a ???? scene where
I had the distinct feeling this area of the land is where Survivors live.
a "kind of way way, or not so way, in the Future, kind of thing"!

The skies were grey, never never ending grey! Gloomy clouds, hazy sky, no light, no sun! The land looked ruined, the fields were all grown over, in what used to be farmlands. The houses looked all unlived in, unattended. I stood in what could have been an area of the usa where farming was done, I walked around a rural area, open countryside, abandoned fields everywheres. Maybe like in Upstate new York, where i was born and raised
I entered some of the houses, only to find rot and abandoned stuff all strewn around. I walked from house to house, each house was far apart, looking for people. I found one house that had a very *very* strange "artifact" in it! There was a table running the whole side of the room from end to end and on this here table were what looked like old television sets, about ten of them laid end to end, about two feet apart. Someone had pasted paper cutouts of people, like as if from magazines, on the blank, dead, screens of these tvs! As if maybe someone wanted to be reminded of "television", when now there were no more electric and no more tv stations! But now this house was empty, the dweller was also gone. My dream attention was now drawn to these tvs! The paper cutouts were moving! They all began to dance and move on each and every tv, all in random dancing, as if the cutouts were minicing real images of tv images!! How could this be? How could they move, being pasted on a dead tube-screen?!
I left this house and wandered for miles and miles, the dream hours seemed like days. i saw some breaks in the clouds to the southeast, so I wandered in that direction. All of the roads were etiher under water or had trees growing in them! I walked for hours mostly across barren fields. I them came up upon a "real' dirt road, a road with ruts. i followed this road to a house, a somewhat old house that was built in the "new age style"; i could see by the worn yard that someone lived in it now.
The next scene was where I had talked to the person at great length, not really recalling what was talked about. he mentioned that he had to 'go to work" now, as his volenteering was to fix roads, and thus us two walked out to an old road grader, and i got onto it with him and he
drove it along the dirt road for several miles and then he dropped me off.
I stood there a minute, then walked some more, southwards, walked towards yet more lighted skies. i could then hear a dull roaring sound, i walked faster toward where this dirt road intersected a real paved road, with Zooming cars, by the dozens, zooming along at about 50 miles per hour!
[what he heck?!]
I walked a long this paved road, now, for several miles, to see a group of buildings along a lake. in the side yard was a pile of rotting fruit, oranges, I could tell that these came from a local grove and well they would as I noted the live oak trees drapped with spanish moss, around this lake!
But i could still see, off to the northwest, the edge of the clouds of the dull grey skies region, the place that i walked from hours before! 1200 miles of walking in maybe five dream walking miles: what gives?!

well, Peanut Gallery members, who read this, many of you would have assumed that this dream is a "Survivor dream after the Changes"! Some readers might have thought that I was writing about what our country will be like after some major Event of destruction.


Certain dream events Give this Dream Away! My dream is a dream of going out of body to walk around an astral, afterlife, world! These worlds are very close together, in vibration, thus in "space", thus i can travel by foot from one to another quickly. That row of tvs! Those paper images were animated by astral energy of the previous owner, having just arrived after death and he missed his television, thus he created the images and animated them. Eventually he moved on to a better realm, leaving the empty house, a house so close to his earth-memories. Most of the people, here, have moved on in progressions, and only the "lagards", who die having little of Spirit in their hearts and lives, tend to come here, to occupy these sorry houses, in a never-ending grey day forever, until they can Move On, and leave, to be replaced yet by more newcomers...

I post this account, in detail, too, as a PRECAUTIONARY warning: that there are probably indeed people who have dreams like this and they think that what they see, and experience, is a "end times aftermath"
dream! they then post it, write it up in a book, and the readers might too think that this "place" is on the physical earth, whereas my dreamplace is in heaven, the spirit realm, the "etheric", not on earth material world, and not in our PHYSICAL future!
[actually this place *could* be in your future faster than you think: when the time comes that you die!!]

I wonder how many other visions, posted as a "earthchange survivor dream", are like of this?! Readers might end up thinking that these probabile futures are for our physical earth, whereas these Seen realities are really in the astral/spirit realms: some of the worlds of Entrance, where souls begin their progressions to higher, better, heavens!

my friend Eric, of

did a recoloring of my Christmas photo

Tallahassee, Florida, the main downtown park, at late dusk. Christmas decorations. note that the "blur" at the upper right, is not a blur, this is "Spanish Moss", an airplant, common to this area, a Bromilard plant.

He wrote
-----Freestone --

As I experimented with making different changes to
your picture of
the tree lights picture the better your original
looked! This
variation is only a little different -- straightened,
sharpened, and
the color shifted from red tinted to blue-green tinted
(or no longer
red tinted). It's not any better, just slightly
different. The
composition, exposure, and sharpness (pleasantly soft
appropriate to dusk) in your original are excellent. I
also tried
other more extreme changes, like bluer or redder light
or slight
paint effects, but your original picture kept looking
better by

The reason I messed with the light color a little is
that some people
think that incandescent lights add more of a reddish
cast to pictures
that we did't see in the actual scene. So removing the
red (or adding
blue or blue-green) can make the photo look more like
the scene did
to our eyes. However, many people don't notice such
subtle color
casts and don't have much color memory. Usually I
don't mess with
photo colors (except with night shots) because with
all the
uncertainties of different monitor settings it's
probably a wasted
effort. Our flickr picture colors can look quite
different on
different monitors, as I've discovered at Strozier and
probably found at the public library. My few pictures
that I worked
on to supposedly perfect the colors probably look
better only to me
on my iMac, except maybe for "Ghosts."-------

Now the two can be compared.
