"An Unending Love"
This blog and video is devoted and dedicated to my daughter, my grand daughters, and my grand son. They are hearts of my heart. Our connection through many lives..... is utterly infinite.
The degree of our enlightenment is the degree of passion that we will have for the whole world." ~The Greystone Mandala
~The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.
In “Conversations with God”, by Neale Donald Walsch, there is a warning. I think of it as the Atlantis passage, and I've quoted it a few times before. "As I have said, this isn't the first time your civilization has been at this brink," God tells Walsch. "I want to repeat this, because it is vital that you hear this. Once before on your planet, the technology you developed was far greater than your ability to use it responsibly. You are approaching the same point in human history again. It is vitally important that you understand this. Your present technology is threatening to outstrip your ability to use it wisely. Your society is on the verge of becoming a product of your technology rather than your technology being a product of your society. When a society becomes a product of its own technology, it destroys itself."

The term Indigo is often rebelled against...as a label. I have come to agree, especially at the behest of my daughter. But I suppose it is like any other "jargon" in that we can connect with the reality of these children with that label. At the same time, most all children...are born this way. They are truth seeker...with high intuition coupled with an innate ability to detect dishonesty. There are many other qualities which, frankly, we see in almost every child we meet if we have the interest and devotion to be curious.
One question I always used to ask of any child in sessions was, "What is it that you have come to teach me today?" This question startled the child initially...that any adult would ask them this question. I would then explain that, if they wished, they could think about it until the next session. Inevitably, when the child became aware that this was indeed an authentic question, their answers seemed worth waiting for, even if it took a while. Almost always, I felt gratitude and astonishment at their answers. Many who might have been described as "concrete thinkers" by schoolteachers who, themselves, were concrete and linear, clearly were capable of deeper and more reflective abstract thinking. It is the understanding of their nature, understanding of the evolutionary phase, and affirming of the child's essence which creates the environment for these children to grow maximally.
In my experience, I don't see a lot of difference between the parenting skills of an "Indigo", and the parents of a (allegedly) "regular" kid. However, it is understanding the child and its advanced abilities new to this generation, that is key. Inevitably, in working with a child, it becomes quite apparent that at least one parent is the same, whether or not they are ready to embrace and value that.

Only TEN?! I wondered. I really enjoy Salon magazine for their journalism, their creativity and, for the most part , their accuracy. So, in the middle of a wonderful snowstorm which affords me more leisure time, I went with my requisite cup of coffee, to the Salon site.
The front page has an article, "Year in Crazy: The Top Ten". Before I clicked, I paused to think what my top ten crazees were this past year. When I went to the slideshow, I confess Salon did a bang-up job! I did not include any on their list. Yet, were I to add another 10...easy, cheesy!
In short, I suppose we can all agree that the last year has ramped up in the number and nature of head-shaking events! There is certainly the clearer vision of who the "bad guys" are, in terms of preserving our earth and its people, and those who reflect integrity in their actions as well as in their rhetoric, and simply being "decent" human beings. That vision, facilitated by information speed, has (thank heavens!) alerted us to some truly good folks and really decent impulses.
One problem is "sheople". So many are, or choose to remain, sheople. It is so clear when speaking with them, that their responses are parroted, emotional, shallow, and their facts are simply unchecked. Their own assumtions are, "Make It Up AS You Go Along: UNPLUGGED!"
They are the ideal target of the yellow journalism media. There is not even an attempt on their part to "balance", to use critical thinking skills......very frustrating. But, what a wonderful event to speak with those who have done their homework....who simply "get it". Truth be known, there are legitimate reasons for some.....those working triple jobs in this fragile economy which continues to support the elimination of the middle class; those who are the primary caretaker for several young children, etc. Their extra time, which for them is an oxymoron, is spent in simple survival mode. I do , however, wish at times that they, knowing this would be more ready to admit the fact that they don't know enough about an issue.
I know folks who watch only one of the partisan shows, rather than another contrary to their own opinion. Thus their impoverished views. The U.S. is a knee-jerk reaction nation, for the most part. Their entire view of policy, events, is driven by an isolated headline which is generally unrelated to the body of the article! So, we are suckers of the highest rating!
The year 2011 is poised for things which will utterly astound us. Perhaps we can be better with mentally filing some of this information, "For Future Reference", and acquiring a refined tolerance for ambiguity.

This in itself is not terribly difficult especially if the wife is not working...her perspective becomes narrowed down to child-care and housekeeping. The isolation is also implemented by moving to an area which, due to its own culture, is not challenging to the woman. The abusive spouse will do anything to keep her "out of the mix" of spiritually and intellectually stimulating people. Generally, the abusive spouse will do much to avoid further education of his partner, because of his own insecurities. The real truth is that the man is generally terrified to have his partner become "all that she can be", since his own confidence is low. Often, the abusive spouse "looks" different than he really is. On the surface, he may be charming, well-employed, have monied family, but he really wants the "trophy" wife and children, so that they can proclaim his "identified value" to the circle of people he creates...again no one who ever challenges him is included in his circle...where his impoverishment is not so obvious.
As an example, I know a woman, who after a years-long grooming by the husband, was not allowed to go to her brother's wedding in another state, 'because we don't have any money for things like that". The knowledge that the husband had over two million dollars in assets failed to register in her brain...and to connect with how very little a plane ticket or gas would have been so that she could attend. Years later, she was outraged...mostly at herself...when she finally "connected". Then, she could say what she would have done in that moment, should the same event occur again. For many years she was sad about thtIt all begins, of course, with a power/control structure, mostly noticed by seeing otherwise strong, bright and capable women becoming depressed and anxious, more controlling themselves, perhaps drinking more, and trying harder and harder each day to be the perfect, trophy wife...the perfect mother.
Isolation is one of the mechanisms used to create and maintain domination of one person over another.
Another insidious strategy from the abusive spouse regards the parents and family of both partners...only the parents who represent the same dysfunction as in himself, are welcomed into his family. Any parent who represents challenge for a higher good, independence, individuation, etc., will, over time be sorted "out of the mix".
b) Your isolation creates an exterior shield of silence regarding the abuse in your home.
c) Your isolation serves to silence you from yourself with respect to your abusive relationship.

The Sacred Journey of Life
"Path of Consciousness"
This seminar also based on ancient language of the Creative Primordial forces of Masculine and Feminine forces ever present and at work in the universe that we have come to know. These stories talk of the desire of union as the Principle of Creation “Let there be Light”. It also has its basis in the idea of “We are made in It’s image”. It is the Journey of Christ Consciousness, that all is life and in perfect order. The art of Love, Compassion, and Reverence with all of life and walking as though a living prayer!

• Reverence of Life
• Masculine & Feminine Forces

The Seven Essene Mirrors of Relationship
This seminars purpose is to teach the reflections of life that are ever present before us. Of which we do not notice because of the very first mirror of life. These Mirrors of Relationship are based on a philosophy written by the Ancients thousands of years ago. To this day they are taught in most of the Eastern Monasteries as a natural part of the process of understanding yourself. Through the journey of the reflections one establishes a better and more purposeful relationship with others and life. This seminar shows not only what they are, it teaches how to understand them and most importantly how to use them in relationship to your self. The mirrors are listed below:
|• Reflections of the Moment|
|• Reflections of Judgment|
|• Reflections of Loss|
|• Your Most Forgotten Love|
|• Dark Night of the Soul|
|• Compassion and Perfection of All Things|
The Principles of Karma
A seminar based on the Oriental and Buddhist philosophies of the path of the Monk. All Eastern traditions follow the principles of Newton’s third law of cause and effect, all be it older than the mathematical proof of the law. This is what Christ intended with “Nothing is above the Law” and “Whatever ye mete is Returned to you ten fold”. There are twelve principles of karma of which we, in this part of the world, misunderstand and pay little or no heed. We plow along in life with very little mindfulness of what we set in motion. We discuss the principles and offer ideas on how to balance the effects of our cause, the idea of the principle of Alpha and the Omega.
• Natural Universal Law “The First Cause”
• The Buddhist Philosophy of Cause
• Karma - The Twelve Principles
• Becoming the First Cause
• Clearing The Principles
• The Moment – Creation in Motion
• Renewal of Purpose
Return To Innocence
A seminar based in the ancient traditions of innocence of being and the true journey of consciousness available to all that seek this path of higher understanding. It is the journey of Christ Consciousness, “…even the least among you that believe in me shall do these things…” The truth of the hidden meaning beneath this statement from ancient traditions. It is a learning of how to balance the primordial forces to operate in union, understanding the heaviness of life and its impact on physical form, dross. The principles of how life accumulates by one drop at a time until we overflow. The ancients have warned us since the beginning of time on which is the best path of life. We have mistaken ancient metaphor and allegory, overlooking symbolism, and have walked a path of material form. We have forgotten our first Love.
