I moved my blog here from multiply. The images from my older posts have disappeared. When I notice someone has read one, I put them back. It was an insurmountable task to do all my entries from the beginning.
I think I finally managed to do something abstract that didn’t turn into a flower, although there may be a bit of a leaf in there.
Come wind, rain, hail (haven’t seen much sun), this cyclamen has been blooming bravely for several months bringing a spot of cheer in our dreary weather. Not bad for a spur of the moment purchase on sale at a supermarket.
Before clicking to post here, I was looking at the weather report (red alert for wind, waves and high water) and skimmed some comments people had made. I was surprised to see some saying it is God punishing us. I have read that the greater part of the French people are atheist. I don’t believe that God intervenes in such a direct way as to send storms on the bad guys, but I do believe there are consequences, often random, all the way down the line resulting from our actions. Another comment said we pay enough tax, we should be able to choose our weather. People are losing confidence in the system and rightly so as it cannot provide the solution to our problems. Only inner change, manifesting in our deeds and ways of being, can bring about a better world.
Things may look bad but I have hope, like this bright cyclamen. I am counting on my fellow human beings to develop their divine nature, the one our Creator breathed into us. This is the message given in The Revelation of Arès.

A young woman is promoting a day of challenge to women everywhere to wear a headscarf on February 1, 2014. It is meant to be an experiment, a sort of walking in others’ shoes. http://worldhijabday.com/ In my opinion, both sides of the question are making too big a deal out of what a woman […]
“For the Lord has a case
Against the inhabitants of this land,
Because there is no honesty and no goodness
And no obedience to God in the land.
[False] swearing, dishonesty, and murder,
And theft and adultery are rife;
Crime follows upon crime!
For that, the earth is withered:
Everything that dwells on it languishes–
Beast of the field and birds of the sky–
Even the fish of the sea perish.
Hosea- a prophet in the 800′s BC
And you wonder why there is climate change? Why does nature seem to be more and more out of whack?
When has humanity lived according to our Creator’s will–practicing love, peace, forgiveness, freedom, using our heart’s intelligence?
“…for I have given the princes time to listen to My Word, and still more than the time needed to repent!
Since they have not repented (and since they keep) laying claim to My Strength and diverting piety toward their false works,
you shall establish the true piety of My People,
you shall teach Truth,
you shall love My People,
you shall help the oppressed man against the oppressor,
the despoiled man against the despoiler;
along with your brothers of the steppes, those who do not utter My Name, you shall establish equity.
(It is) better to establish it without (mentioning) My Name than let what I loathe rule in My Name.
This, I shouted out from the hills, My Shout set the billows heaving off Gennesaret,
but the multitude that was listening to Me remained seated.
It would have been better for them not to recognize My Voice,
but to rise as the waves of the sea, as the deaf obstinate waves rushing at the (ridge of) rock that bars their way;
they would have defeated sin, abomination as high as a cliff.
But the multitude that was listening to Me remained seated with their rulers and priests.
I have waited (for them to rise), and now I rise instead of them.”
The Revelation of Arès 28/9b-12
Jesus speaking as messenger in 1974
We can change the world if we change ourselves from within, doing what our Creator has advised throughout the ages, being Good.
A snowdrop brings hope.
