World Hijab Day

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.   In my opinion, both sides of the question are making too big a deal out of what a woman […]

Fountain of Youth?

Attempting to peel a grapefruit, I felt like a sixty-year-old woman.  Maybe the knife needs sharpening.

Aussitôt dit, aussitôt fait.  (No sooner said than done.)


That took me back to at least forty-eight.  🙂

Could the philosopher’s stone be a whetstone?



Rise out of the Vortex

“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 4:1b-3
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.
