 ARE YOU Divine?

Excerpt from Story of A Clam

Rebekah Alezander Dunlap and John M. Templeton


Every form of nature is unique!  No clam, or dolphin, or angelfish is exactly like its counterpart.  Can you imagine a billion unique forms expanding, growing, and vibrating their life forces far beyond the normal range of consciousness?  Does each individual play its personal note in the universal symphony of life?  Is every note somehow necessary to the whole, and would it be missed were it not sounded?  My experiences have taught me that the important thing to retain is an understanding of our own uniqueness and effectiveness as a divine creation of the universe.  Even though we are not the whole, the whole certainly wouldn't be the same without us.

Are we part of a larger symphony of life that extends to infinity?  And yet can we be consciously aware that each part is needed and is gently connected to every other part?

As we come to understand our own spirit, soul, and body to a greater degree, can we also learn why we respond the way we do to others and to situations in our realm of existence?  Whenever a discordant experience may come into our consciousness, we have the ability to alter the situation.  We are not helpless victims.  We may take any situation.  We are not helpless victims.  We may take any situation into our consciousness and place it on the inner altar of the Great Creator's love.

Is the Great Creator the source of divine harmony?  Is it within you and is it within others?  Do we carry with us an innate sense of the presence of the Great Creator and become inspired to think, feel, and do the things that maintain harmony and productivity?  Our inner experience is more important than our outer experience.  The accelerating discovery of new information requires diligence and enthusiasm.  Balance can be achieved as we integrate the various aspects of ourselves.

When we remember our divinity, can we look at our world and all the life forms in it with a broad, generous, friendly, and loving spirit?  Can we live each day and continue our evolutionary progress as we maintain an open mind and understand that no one person know the totality of truth?

 

Reflections:

-BonnieJ.Ryan

Father’s Day is important to me.  My father is the one man in the world who has loved me my entire life!  As a single mother of four grown children, I especially appreciate my dad.  Too many fathers are – for whatever reason – simply not there.  The 2000 census reports more than 9,700,000 single-parent families in the U.S., and more than 7,500,000 of those are single women.  Of course that means nearly 2,200,000 single dads are also caring for children.  

Life is complex and messy, and moralizing on this difficult issue serves no useful purpose.  There are, however, some important concerns for all of us who care about the children of the earth.  Our children need caring, responsible, reliable adults in their lives.  Missing fathers and mothers leave a huge gap to be filled.  Add to this the fact that so many baby-boomer grandparents – my generation – are focused on  “healthy, active lifestyles” that exclude children.   Further complicate the problem with the “mobility” of families and geographic separation.  The result is that too many of our children are left emotionally “home alone.”

Why are we surprised that violence is a problem in schools?  Fear is at the root of most violence, and what is more frightening than to feel that you are alone and unloved?  I am no psychologist, but I know that a child that is loved can survive against all the odds.  Love is the most powerful force in the universe, and it is the only thing that will save the children of the earth.

Being a father – or a mother – is not a matter of blood or birth, it is a matter of the heart, a matter of love.  I have been personally blessed throughout my life with wonderful parents and a number of loving adults who “adopted” me emotionally.  Love nurtured me and helped me succeed; love kept me safe during the dark night of the soul; love gives meaning and purpose to life.

So on this Father’s Day I honor my own dad with heartfelt love and gratitude and I offer a wish for my peers – the babyboomers:  Let us be the generation that changes the world by loving the children.  Let us create the safe communities, schools and organizations that will protect, teach and nurture “our” children – all the children of the world.  Let us put the children first.  Let us love them – each and every one of them.

Notes and Thoughts By W. G. Black Ph.D. - Founder of Gakati'yi

 

To quote Arnold Gingrich, "The Fishing Is Far More Important than the Fish." 

 

Father's Day was on June 17 this year.  With no particular conscious planning on anyone's part, this Father's Day turned out to be a cardinal, memorable day for me.  Cathy Black, our eldest of three of the world's finest, was born March 1, 1960. She did not want to miss out on the remarkable, earthshaking '60's, however painful and foreboding they might be.  Forty-one years later, she provided me with a joyful, earthshaking Father's Day. Last October, very close to my 63rd birthday, she found a "new" soul partner in life. They were on their way to Taos, New Mexico, where Cathy had spent about 9 years teaching energy work, massage, healing and intuition.  We met at the office of Dr. Doug Larsen in Flagstaff, Arizona.  Barbara Sheridan and I spent long and happy years in Dallas working together.  She moved to Arizona to be with Dr. Larsen and assist in the development of an exciting and progressive healing center.  If you hurt anywhere, I suggest you track him down and request his help.  He is among the gentle and most loving, healing spirits you will find, and his skills are so excellent in so many areas. 

Very appropriately, the first part of our time together was spent in the exchange of healing. Cathy has always been extremely healthy, but she had her atlas jammed a bit.  Dr. Larsen took  care of that easily.  He also was very helpful to Keith with some chronic bone and joint based pain.  Cathy gave Thom Kelley a brief session to help the healing of his broken knuckle. Barbara Sheridan jumped on one of the many tables to catch Cathy before she left her healing mode.  Barbara rested a few minutes, and, as she was leaving the table she said, "That woman (Cathy) has more love in her body than anyone I have met...in a long time." 

We departed for lunch at Oregano's, a wonderful Italian restaurant with great food and authentic atmosphere. I found it so appropriate since Oil of Oregano is one of Nature's most flexible and powerful remedies, and Dr. Larsen has expertise in using the essential oils.  After a visit to their 2.5 acres east of Flagstaff, and a visit to a used bookstore, we went south on the beautiful drive to Sedona. Thom Kelley and Keith Spear drove together. As they were discussing lofty, high thoughts about the future, suddenly a beautiful eagle soared above and stayed with them for about one minute.  As Cathy and I were discussing important things, a black raven stayed with us about one minute.  We went to the Red Planet Diner in Sedona, catching up on everything possible before departure.  The Red Planet Diner has space craft and aliens everywhere, and the menu features alien names and dishes.  The Staff all seemed to be human. Cathy gave me a Father's Day card, and it was so wonderful that it became the theme for Notes and Thoughts this time. 

The front of the card is a beautiful, mystical picture of a fisherman in dimmed, golden sunlight with fog hanging in the air. "The fishing is far more important than the fish." Inside, the message says, "Thanks, Dad, for teaching me what's important in life. Happy Father's Day."  Does it get any better than this, my Friends?  "The goal of the Soul is Ecstasy." [Messages from Michael] I heard Leonard Nimoy speak in Norman, Oklahoma, in the 60's, while I was in graduate school and Cathy was about five years old. I quote him here, as Spock, "Mission accomplished."  The great teachers, each in their own way, have taught us that the making of idols will lead to loss, pain and suffering. If we worship the fish, or become rigid about the correct way to fish, we step into hell, and it may take a while to return.  No end, however lofty and noble it may be, ever justifies any foul means.  As a planet we have been mistreating our fish in varying degrees of damage.  Jesus said that his disciples would learn to be "fishers of men."  He taught that it was important how it was done as well as that it be done. I have valued the PROCESSES of healing, growing, loving and sharing for a long time now. There is no honor like the honor of Cathy Black's reminder that being a father is a great responsibility with the greatest possible rewards.  My wish for you is that all of your days and your relationships will flourish like this one.

GRAND OPENING OF BLUE GROTTO & LABYRINTH OF MIRACLES -    An Alternative Healing Center  Serving the Greater Baltimore/Washington Metropolitan Area!

      Dannion Brinkley, best-selling author of "Saved By The Light," announces the establishment of this area's first full service Holistic Kingdom.  Brinkley is best known for his near death experience and the T.V. movie based on his best selling book. He served as an ad hoc advisor to the National Institutes of Health on alternative healing practices.  Brinkley has joined with his fellow Good Knights and other professionals to offer this area a variety of alternative healing techniques and stress reduction private workshops utilizing special healing chambers. 

     "We cannot always depend on traditional healing practices to make us whole. We must address the mind, body and spirit. Blue Grotto allows the individual to find their personal path to peace, good health, and prosperity," states Sir Dannion Brinkley.

      Sir Robert Cassiel, the Center's Third Degree Reiki Master/Teacher, says: "It is such a breath of fresh air to work with clients in a natural garden setting rather than a closed office environment. It allows me and the client to re-connect with the power of the Earth."

       Sir Edward Michael Jagen, known internationally as The Blue Knight of Maryland, explains, "Traditional medicine and its pills treat symptoms. There can be no cure until one finds peace of mind. This healing center is dedicated to helping those who are troubled find a path to personal peace. Then the healing will begin." Jagen is a retired police intelligence investigator and recipient of the 1999 President's Service Award Silver Medal for reaching 5 million U.S. families with his programs which reduce crime and violence in our everyday lives.

      Blue Grotto & The Labyrinth of Miracles sits upon two plus acres of beautifully sculptured gardens, ponds and boasts an enchanted forest. This private Castle retreat is located at the Good Knight Angelic Kingdom.  This Kingdom supports the only outdoor quarter acre Medicine Wheel Living Labyrinth on the East Coast. Meditation gardens can be found within the Enchanted Forest with 12 elaborate fairy gardens and on the Castle green.  Adult Healing Workshops & Guided Healing Practices are performed by qualified staff of healing touch/intuitive professionals.

 Open by appointment only every Wednesday between the hours of 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. for a maximum of 20 guests.  Call Dr. Gwen MacGregor, Executive Director, at 301-595-8989 (www.goodknight.org)  to reserve now.  Light refreshments are available in the Castle Café.

A reminder as we approach our Nations birthday.

Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence?

Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before They died.

Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned.

Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army; another had two sons captured.

Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War.

They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor.

 What kind of men were they?

Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists. Eleven were merchants, nine were Farmers and large plantation owners; men of means, well educated. But they signed the Declaration of Independence knowing full well that the penalty would be death if they were captured.

Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader, saw his ships swept from the seas by the British Navy. He sold his home and properties to pay his debts, and died in rags.

Thomas McKeam was so hounded by the British that he was forced to move his family almost constantly. He served in the Congress without pay, and his family was kept in hiding. His possessions were taken from him, and poverty was his reward.

Vandals or soldiers looted the properties of Dillery, Hall, Clymer, Walton, Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton.

At the battle of Yorktown, Thomas Nelson Jr, noted that the British General Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson home for his headquarters. He quietly urged General George Washington to open fire. The home was destroyed, and Nelson died bankrupt.

Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed. The enemy jailed his wife, and she died within a few months.

John Hart was driven from his wife's bedside as she was dying. Their 13 children fled for their lives. His fields and his gristmill were laid to waste. For more than a year he lived in forests and caves, returning home to find his wife dead and his children vanished. A few weeks later he died from exhaustion and a broken heart.

Norris and Livingston suffered similar fates.

Such were the stories and sacrifices of the American Revolution.

These were not wild-eyed, rabble-rousing ruffians. They were soft-spoken men of means and education. They had security, but they valued liberty more.

Standing tall, straight, and unwavering, they pledged:

"For the support of this declaration, with firm reliance on the protection of the divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other, our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor."

They gave you and me a free and independent America. The history books never told you a lot about what happened in the Revolutionary War. We didn't fight just the British.
We were British subjects at that time and we fought our own government!

Some of us take these liberties so much for granted, but we shouldn't. So, take a few minutes while enjoying your 4th of July holiday this year and silently thank these patriots. It's not much to ask for the price they paid.

Healthful Hints

By Donna McGrath, M.T. (ASCP), M.S., C.H.T., D.D.

Natural Treatments For Whiplash Injuries 

            

Statistics show that two out of every five drivers are in a car accident per year. I, unfortunately, became one of those statistics recently. Below please find some helpful remedies for overcoming the trauma of an accident and its concurrent whiplash injuries.

Whiplash is most commonly received while riding in a car that is struck from the front, side or back. It occurs when the neck is unexpectedly jerked either forward, backward, or side to side, causing muscles, ligaments and other supporting soft tissues to be overstretched or torn. The discs between the spinal discs can bulge or rupture. The spinal vertebrae can be forced out of alignment, reducing range of motion.

Whiplash injuries can commonly cause the following symptoms

  • Neck Pain and Stiffness

  • Inability to Turn the Neck fully

  • Headaches

  • Numbness in Arms, Hands, and Fingers

  • Low or Mid Back Pain

  • Blurred Vision

  • Nausea 

 

Chiropractic Care

             The chiropractic approach is to use specific chiropractic adjustments to help the spine to return to normal function. After a thorough case history and examination is taken, the doctor will recommend a series of visits to help restore proper function and motion to the spinal bones. If caught early enough, inflammation and scar tissue can often be minimized. Ice is commonly applied on and off every twenty minutes for three or four hours to reduce inflammation in the area. Drink extra water and use a soft collar if needed in the first few days following an accident. Consult a chiropractor before becoming dependent on addictive pain medication.

 

Massage Therapy

           Massage therapy can be combined with chiropractic to provide excellent relief to the whiplash sufferer. A good therapist will be very sensitive to your injuries. Make sure you give him/her a thorough medical history and the extent of your injuries. Soothing essential oils such as ylang ylang, clary sage, lavender, orange, and rose can comfort and soothe jangled nerves and muscles.

  

Emotional Healing

In addition to the above recommendations, the Bach flower essence Rescue Remedy can be taken almost immediately after the accident if the remedy is on hand and the patient is conscious. Ten to twenty drops are given under the tongue. The remedy helps cope with the emotional trauma and aftermath of the accident.

Individual flower essences can also be applied externally to the neck and rubbed in with the homeopathic gel, Arnica. The flower essence Gorse is applied to the left back of the neck. The right back of the neck is rubbed with the flower essence, Oak. The center front and back of the neck is rubbed with the essence Water Violet.

            The lower back in the middle is rubbed with the flower essence, Wild Oats. Pain in the left lower back is remedied by Cherry Plum; the right side of the lower back is remedied by Willow. These individual essences can be found in your local health food store.

            Using the above flower essences will help to process the emotional injuries incurred by the accident. Be aware that exhaustion (oak) and depression (gorse) may follow a neck injury. Make sure to allow yourself ample time to rest following your accident. The product Relax-o-zyme by Enzymatic Therapies will aid in helping one to fall asleep.

 

Nutritional Healing

             To help heal sore, arthritic vertebrae, use a combination of 1500 mg/day of glucosamine sulfate along with 1000 mg of MSM. Expect to take this combination for about 1-3 months or more before an appreciable effect can be felt because you are actually building up deteriorated cartilage with these supplements.

 To decrease inflammation, 400 mg, three times a day of Bromelain can be used with good success to reduce swelling. Another excellent product to reduce swelling and inflammation is Curazyme by Enzymatic Therapies. 

Muscle soreness can be relieved by taking the homeopathic pellets, Arnica Montana 30cc. Ligament soreness can be remedied by taking Rhus Toxicum 30cc.

 

Spiritual Healing

             It may be of interest that the body is represented metaphysically in dreams and visions by your car. Therefore, if your car is severely damaged in the accident, think of it as a message from spirit that you should look towards giving your body a major repair.

 

            Special thanks to Dr. Mark Deitich, Rick Williams, and Mardi Lew, my chiropractor and massage therapists for helping to get me out of pain following my accident. Also thanks to Great Spirit for not causing more injury to others in the accident and the Angels in Manhatten for helping me after the accident with the car repair and rental.

 Sincere Gratitude to All and many Blessings in the Light,

Donna McGrath

 Please send any specific questions or comments you may have to me via e-mail at dawnawolfe@yahoo.com. Thanks very much and I hope to hear from you soon.

Harley-Davidson Motor Company Contributes $50,000  Towards Vietnam War In Memory Memorial Plaque!

Harley-Davidson Motor Company, on behalf of the corporation, its employees, dealers and customers, contributed $50,000 toward the Vietnam War  In Memory Memorial Plaque at the Rolling Thunder XIV motorcycle rally in Washington D.C.

Rolling Thunder, Inc., has long endorsed the Vietnam War In Memory Memorial Plaque, which will acknowledge and honor veterans whose postwar service-related deaths cannot be commemorated on the Wall.

Jim McCaslin, Harley-Davidson's president, presented the check to Kenneth S. Pond, executive director of The American Battle Monuments Commission, the federal agency assigned by Congress to shepherd the In Memory Plaque to completion.

Planning for the In Memory Plaque is well underway. On April 26, the National Capital Memorials Commission voted to place the Vietnam War In Memory Memorial Plaque near the Three Servicemen statuary. James Cummings, architect for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, Inc., reports that preliminary work is underway, subject to consultation with George Dickie, architect for the Vietnam Women's Memorial, Inc., for a design submission to the ABMC. 

The Harley-Davidson contribution represents a considerable leap forward in funding, but Col. Anthony Corea, the ABMC's director of operations and finance, says the agency cannot determine the project's actual cost until the design is finalized and site preparation and other related costs are learned. 
Therefore, we continue to encourage additional In Memory Plaque donations from those who wish to share in the creation of this unique symbol of recognition and honor for these veterans, "the hidden casualties of Vietnam." 

You may wish to donate to the ABMC plaque fund in memory of an individual Vietnam veteran. All donors are invited to notify to the Vietnam War In Memory Memorial, Inc., (RCoderFitz@aol.com) with information to be placed on our Vietnam War In Memory Plaque Project Donors and Dedications web page. Your contribution's amount will not be posted on the Donors and Dedications page, as all assistance for the In Memory Plaque is equally welcome.

Thank you,

Ruth Coder Fitzgerald

ANGEL QUOTE
"The meanest life with the least comfort was just as important as the lifetimes when one had many friends, possessions, education, and worth. Each life stands on its own.



BILLFOLD BLESSING:

( From the back of a business card:)
Bless this billfold, Lord, I pray.
Replenish it from day to day.
May the bills flow in and out,
Blessing People all about;
Help me earn and wisely spend;
Show me what to buy and lend.
Thank you God, for bills to pay,
For the things I need today. 
When 'tis empty, fill it more
From thy vast abundant store.
Amen
