What Came Up for Me, When My Lantern went Dark at Equinox

~ Universal Waite Tarot ~
15 - THE DEVIL - Interference due to Separation (Samew; Capricorn)
Encounters Obstruction....
The Appearance of bondage to the concept of being Separated from God; the illusion of self individually detached from the creative Source and in turn separated from other selves. This mirage is the root cause of Egotism which generates competition and strife among human beings. The visual representation of this card is the antithesis of The Lovers, with the sixth card in particular shown to be representative of the human condition before the Fall that caused expulsion from Paradise. The tails of the Man and Woman are lesser indicators of the respective Trees, i.e. Life and the Knowledge of Good and Evil, and their bondage to the pedestal upon which the Baphometic figure sits shows the results of partaking in the Forbidden Fruit. The Separation into materiality is the means of taking the Divine Spirit through a multi-faceted projection into individuated Souls whereas each Ray is obligated to re-discover its creative Origin in the Source of all Being. Herein lies the symbolism of the personal Ego, an illusion in Truth but the specific obstacle all Incarnated Beings must overcome in order to reach liberation from the Karmic Wheel, i.e. the Cycle of rebirth. All of the strife, greed, prejudice, hate, selfishness, lust, and Evil intentions of all kinds imaginable are the result of personal Egotism; individual manifestations of unbelief in the unity of all Consciousness within the Mind of the Source who dwells within all of us. Each incarnated Being has the Key to open the Door of Realization regarding this Truth, yet the Understanding that material existence (solidity) is an illusion must be recognized first. The obscuration of this Reality is the role of the proverbial Threshold Dweller represented on this card. Transcendence of Limitations is the act which sets us free. PARALLEL ARCHETYPES: Mephistopheles, Satan, Baphomet.
State of Mind: Subordination, Ravage, Bondage, Malevolence, Subservience, Downfall, Lack of success, Weird experience, Bad outside influence or advice, Black magic, Unexpected failure, Inability to realize one's goals, Violence, Shock, Fatality, Self-punishment, Temptation to evil, Self-destruction, Dependency upon another person, Blind impulse, Obsession, Endurance

BLACK CAT INTERFACE: Pasadena, Calif. ~ Nantucket, Mass.

Deja Vu

Inside the Matrix, deja vu is the repeat ocurrence of an event that has already taken place moments ago. It happens when the code of the Matrix is altered.

In the Matrix, Neo sees a black cat walk by followed by another that behaves exactly the same way. This tipped off the crew of the Nebucchadnezzar that the code of the Lafayette Hotel had been changed, sealing off most exits, and that agents were in pursuit causing the crew to be caught in a trap.

My mother was given a black kitten, along with a gray one, from a friend when I was 4 years old and living in Pasadena, California. She let me name it "Inky," but not long after arrival, she went outside during a rainstorm and vanished. The gray one I named "Cloudy," and lived over 17 years as our family house cat before passing away.

Twenty years later, I was given a black kitten by my business partner's secretary, and I chose to name her "Inky" as I was a successful pen & ink artist living on the island of Nantucket, in Massachusetts.  After creating a pair of originals for historical posters over the Winter, my cat was chasing June bugs in the courtyard where I lived and vanished. Soon thereafter, my art business that supported me for two years with seasonal income collapsed. I came to understand that good fortune had forsaken me and it took a divorce and 12 years for me to recover from this reversal. Therefore, art commissions that were my mainstay became a secondary form of income; supplementing employment at a resort hotel, house painting as an independent contractor, and at a newspaper as offset pressman. ~ JDHWB-R

March 25th, 2017... Illumination of Threshold Lantern in Repose

New Reiki-Charged Green Candle

On my Sixty-Seventh birthday in this Life a White Candle was lighted in this Lantern at the Stone Circle Sanctuary of Sirius Community in Shutesbury, Massachusetts, USA. The date was March 19th, 2017. On the Vernal Equinox, I led a procession of Members, Residents, and Guests upstairs into the Octagon of the Community Center to begin the ceremony... and my Lantern went dark on the top step, as the White Candle was spent. Meditation Candle in the center of the room was lighted and the ceremony continued "off script" due to my being unprepared for this situation. Though this celebration of entry into Spring was a successful observance of transition into the season of rebirth after the dark days of Winter, I fell into a personal abyss of doubt and uncertainty as Shadow of the Archetypal Hermit, the Grim Reaper, confronted me with my own unresolved Fear of the unknown. Just a day earlier I was confirmed as a Full Member of Sirius Community by the Core Group, so I was totally unaware that my Lantern going dark would trigger me the way it did. The next step was an obvious one for someone who considers himself to be a Lamplighter... I went into Northampton and picked up a new Reiki-charged Green Candle, representing Heart, which I illuminnated yesterday before first light in the Lantern Room of the Connecting Space where I reside on the land at Sirius Community. I now stand on the Threshold of personal psychic integration, where I AM prepared to face the Reaper's scythe on a Bridge of Fire. ~ JDHWB-R

In T.A. (Third Age) 3019, the Reunited Kingdom adopts a New Reckoning, which begins the year on March 25, the date of the downfall of Sauron. This makes it correspond more closely to the Spring beginning of the Elven Calendar.  ~ Appendix D (THE LORD OF THE RINGS Trilogy)

"Surrender" is Angel Card I received at the Sirius Annual Retreat

Lantern on the Last Day of Winter
I sent this letter to the internal listserv for Sirius Community and also eCricket listserv for the Hearthstone Village and beyond... It presents my intention for the Spring Equinox celebration, that already began changing form before it began at 7:30 pm on March 20th at the foot of the stairs leading to the Octagon in the Community Center... I lit the Threshold Lantern before beginning our processional climb, only to watch it go out when reaching the top step, as its candle was totally spent. So, I was humbled by surrender to the unknown and went "off script" by lighting the Meditation Candle at center of the star pattern on floor of the Octagon. During our recent Annual Retreat at Sirius Community, the "Surrender" Angel Card came up for me and impacted me deeply. I shared this insight with those of us who participated in our Celebration of Spring and opened the floor for "popcorn style" sharing of what Spring and the symbolism of rebirth means to each one of us. Everyone living at The Lighthouse in our Community was in the Octagon among us present. One of the Founders and an Intern represented the Long House, a Member from Morning Star, plus a member from the Phoenix House, and a Hearthstone Villager living across Baker Road from Sirius, participated in this event; my first as a Full Member of this Community living on the land in the Connecting Space, between The Lighthouse and Kailasa... I AM prepared to do my part in brightening our Light on this Hill in Shutesbury, Massachusetts and drawing energy into this Ecovillage for renewal of Life, as Spring renews the Earth after the dormancy of Winter has receded with increasing sunlight following passage of the Vernal Equinox... ~ JDHWB-R

I AM playing the role of the Hermit (9th Archetype in the Tarot Major Arcana) at 7:00 pm, leading us upstairs to the Octagon inside our Community Center, as about a foot of snow remains on the ground at Sirius Stone Circle Sanctuary where turning of the wheel of the year ceremonies for the seasons are usually held. Here is description of this card according to my intuitive interpretation of the Universal Waite Tarot (1992)...

9 - THE HERMIT - Introspection and Internal Illumination (Teth; Virgo)

Seeks Wisdom of the Source....

The Light shines from within the Soul; the view from the Summit which puts life into its proper perspective. This vantage point is accessed via looking to God who dwells within us; the infinite Creator being the reservoir of all the answers which the Seeker pursues. Each one of us is symbolized by the Lantern image; God's Light of inner awareness being the Candle Flame. Wisdom is the transcendental interpretation of knowledge as illuminated by the Light shining within one's Soul. All barriers of the material World are beneath the Cosmic Consciousness of the Hermit who has already traveled his Path of Quest. His search has led him to the Summit of his own perfection. Now, from this great height he can see 360 degrees without obscuration. His Lantern is held high as an inspiration to all who aspire to attain the Wisdom which he has come to realize during the process of his own Soul journey. The isolation and abstinence image sometimes given to the Hermit is one of the past; a glimpse of his travels through the physical and emotional wasteland where the misrepresentations of life as seen through the perception of the Physical Plane have been experienced and eventually transcended. This Archetype passed through a period of solitude and alienation during this walk through the proverbial "Valley of the Shadow of Death" that could have driven him Mad had it not been for the Light in his Lantern penetrating the Darkness and illuminating his Soul thus granting him hope of deliverance. The Hermit has indeed been carried through this initiatory Journey via his unwavering Faith in the Universal Source who Teaches and Guides all of us internally. The Lantern which he carries symbolizes his inner Vision provided via his "Third Eye" (Candle) which grants this Archetypal traveler a keen sense of Spiritual insight. PARALLEL ARCHETYPES: The Sage, The Old Wise Man, The Wandering Friar, The Lamplighter.

State of Mind: Counsel, Knowledge, Solicitude, Prudence, Discretion, Caution, Vigilance, Circumspection, Self-denial, Withdrawal, Regression, Annulment, Tendency to withhold emotion, Fear of discovery, Loner, Insensitive, Expressionless, Misleading, Misguiding, Illumination from within, Divine inspiration, Retirement from participation in current events

Please join us in the Community Center at Sirius, 72 Baker Road in Shutesbury!

Let us Greet the Arrival of Spring together in the Light of the Angel of Sirius...

4th Anniversary Post: The Green Light of Universal Love is ON!

Interference to Illuminati Strategic Movement (Green Ray Completion and the Rainbow Body of Light)

The Green Light is ON... Lanternwalk is NOW! ~ 3/19/2013

I AM Lamplighter, One of Many. My Teaching is: How to Light the Lantern located at the Seat of your Soul… the Heart Center. In spectral light, the Color is Green. The Heart is connected to the Crown, spectral light color Violet; to the Third Eye, spectral light color Indigo; and to the Throat, spectral light color Blue… from Above. It is connected to the Solar Plexus, spectral light color Yellow; the Loins, spectral light color Orange; and to the Root, spectral light color Red… from Below.

When we are born, this Lantern is dark. What we see is reflected light… that which is presented and observed through the five physical senses… sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch. The sixth sense is inactive because the Soul Lantern is not yet lit. Everything is mirrored. Refraction displays the Illusion of Separation… many Human Beings moving in multiple directions, often conflicting and in opposition or competition… lacking Synchronicity. Harmony is haphazard at best.

Vision of the composite whole is only visible through Internal Illumination… radiating from the Heart Center when you light the Lantern of your Soul. The Ego must stand aside in order for an Aspect to contact Source, through the Heart… the I AM Presence.

Meditation is the Key to Internal Illumination. The mind must be void of conscious thought… No internal dialogue to distract from the Silence of Presence. Seek an imaginary point upon which to focus concentration in the absence of thought. The path to Source traverses the individuated Soul, up the Spine from the Root, to the Sacral, to the Solar Plexus, through the Heart and then connecting the Throat, the Third Eye, and the Crown. As the Root passes down into the core of Gaia, the center of the Earth, the Crown reaches upward into the core of the Sun, heat and Light generator for our planet at the edge of the Milky Way galaxy within the known Universe. Then, Time and Space are transcended as individuality merges into Oneness with the Source – God, who IS the sum total of all aspects, or individual expressions, of Source. We are collectively the Creator manifesting as his/her Creation. There is no separation; only Unity – Oneness. Every aspect of Source exists in Harmony within this Unity.

We are all One Life… One Being having a human experience through the kaleidoscope of separation. Namaste – The I AM in You is the same I AM in Me. Everyone is connected at the Source level, accessible through the Heart center when we silence the Mind and enter a transcendental state of Meditation. Simultaneous Synchronized Meditation has the Power to change the world!

Separation disappears when mind is aligned with Heart in Source… Harmony among all living beings is understood. We see ourselves in Community with everyone else on the planet… and connected with the Universe. When enough people recognize this interconnectedness, reaching critical mass with conscious choice to live in Oneness, Light will shine away the darkness of separation and the Earth will be transformed by our synchronicity of intention. Cooperation replaces competition, as the imbalance of “power over” becomes the harmony of “power within,” so sharing with each other comes naturally to all who center themselves in Heart. We all give and we all receive because we are all One Being. Responsibility is a shared experience and rotates through everyone in Community. We serve each other, build together, pool resources, and make collective decisions via the consensus process. All land in Community is held locally in common. Dwellings are held by inhabitants as long as they participate in Community; going into a pool for re-distribution should they pass away or leave to go elsewhere, such as another local Community.

Open source distribution of goods and services, both within each local Community and among other Communities, replaces the proprietary market system of the old paradigm with a network of cooperative enterprises; Community-based and operating on a work/share basis that is open to everyone who chooses to participate.

In Community together, we share the Light of Source via collective Internal Illumination from our Heart center and synchronized Meditation with the galactic Core Alignment of December 21, 2012 when Earth crossed the Ecliptic, or Event Horizon, which is the black hole at the center of the Milky Way… With our Heart center consciously connected to Source energy, we collectively have the power to change the world by transcending Separation and realizing our Unity as One Being in the Universe. We manifest as a multiplicity of multi-dimensional Aspects for the purpose of expressing of our collective creativity… Namaste.

The I AM in You is the same I AM in Me. We are all One! When the Soul Lantern is lit with the Light of Source we shine direct Light via our Heart center, thus replacing the reflected light mirrored by the five senses. Our sixth sense awakens, and the Unity of all life forms is revealed as we see with our Third Eye as directed by Heart… Lanternwalk is Community. We synchronize our minds in Heart and walk together in the Light of Source. Egos vanish in collective Mind when it is immersed in Heart. Separation ceases to exist. No “power over,” no hierarchy… only horizontal relationships among each other emanating “power within” as God, the Universal Source, dwells within each One of Us.

We stand together, wherever we are on the surface of this planet, as Watchers for the cusp of this global Paradigm Shift in Consciousness… the Awakening of Lightworkers everywhere! As Gatekeepers, we hold the Light of Source and shine our Heart Lamps as Beacons for all who choose to wake up and Unify together building Community on Earth… and sharing this Unity in Source with all who are willing to heed the call and join us… as Participants in the Great Shift triggered by the alignment of Earth and the Galactic center of the Milky Way.

We are Lamplighters, now Awakened in our Heart center with the Light of Source, and are called to share the Key to Internal Illumination; Mystical Meditation. Only by going inward, may we experience the Oneness of God, the Universal Source of Life, and only by shining our Heart Light may we enjoy Community with other Awakened Human Beings… in order to Light the dark Lanterns yet to know the Quickening of Spirit which comes with receiving Illumination within the Heart Center.

Lanternwalk is the sharing of this Internal Illumination by Walking in the Light among others, whether or not their Lanterns are Lit… for darkness ALWAYS flees the Light. Release any fear, Open your Heart to Source, and let the Flame of Spirit light the Candle of your Soul Lantern NOW! ~ Original Post upon inception of this Internal Illumination Blog ~ JDHWB-R

The American Relayer: Politics in the United States - Issue No. 7

Flag Representing the Corporate State in America
by Stephen Hren
Ok, so we waited to see how it would go. Ten days later, we have our answer. We, as a nation, have Stage One Fascism Cancer. I don’t think a policy of hoping it will turn out well is realistic anymore. This isn’t the same as Ronald Reagan or George W, or even Richard Nixon. It’s a whole new category of troubles. It’s time to start metaphorical chemotherapy. It’s time to starve the disease out, before the cold civil war becomes a hot one, or worse, the dystopia of our nightmares becomes a permanent reality.
Republican voters had a choice of 17 candidates last primary season. Sixteen of those ranged from decent thoughtful Americans to hold-your-noise stinky. Only one, though, threatened the sanctity and integrity of our republic, and they chose that one. They have to pay for that decision. Pain must be felt for the atrocity they have inflicted upon us, the atrocity known as Trump. If the economy grows, if jobs are created during the next four years, the potentially fatal infection that this man engenders will be seen as a “winner,” and we will be looking at four more. By that time, I can all but guarantee it will be too late. It’s time to tighten our belts and take a hard look at where we are spending our money, and how that is fueling those who support this juggernaut of lies and hatred that is undermining the very soul of our nation.
It’s time to boycott America. It’s time for everyone to boycott America, everywhere. We need everyone’s help to get us through this dark and troubling time. America runs on money. Those now in power care only about money. It’s time to take away the money. It’s literally the only way they will pay attention to us. Facts are a joke. Science is a conspiracy. Rights are for straight white males only. Our voices of protest are just annoying bugs in their ears. Only money works.
Disconnect yourself and your family as much as possible from the cesspool that is generating this plague. You already know what to do in your heart of hearts, it was just easy to get lazy in the Obama years (I certainly did). Mainstream American products, fast food, gas guzzlers, when the system is evil the products that support the system are evil. Cook at home, go on bike rides or walks with friends for entertainment, shop at the food co-op and the farmer’s markets, buy local, you know it all (remember Occupy?!), but it’s time to double-down. Try to tone down or eliminate frivolous spending. Pay down credit card debts that are keeping you on an endless treadmill and that make big banks gazillions of dollars. If this scrimping leaves you with a little bit of extra money, give it to people who help protect the vulnerable who are under attack right now, like the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, Sierra Club, etc.
Avoid contributing to the economies of areas that fueled Trump’s rise. Don’t visit or go on vacation there. Money creates jobs. Let me repeat: only money works. They do not care about your voting rights, the sanctity of your bodies, your freedom of expression or religion. They only care about money. We can be effective. Economics works on the margins: 2% growth is seen as good while 2% contraction is seen as awful. That’s only four percent. I live in North Carolina, and the economic boycott against our discriminatory bathroom law helped replace our Replublican governor with a Democratic one. Every little bit helps. The last thing we want is for those who voted for Trump to be rewarded for their collective assault upon us.
Chemotherapy is likened to beating a dog to get rid of the fleas. It’s an extreme measure, and I do not recommend it lightly, for the pain is causes is broad and intense. But sometimes it’s the only way forward to a cure.

This is where I stand:

The 45th President, his power hungry cronies taking positions of authority in his Cabinet and administration, and the majority in Congress are a real and active threat to me, my way of life, and all or most of the people I love.

The American Relayer - Issue 6
Politics in the United States

Some people are saying that we should give Cheetos Mussolini a chance, that we should "work together" with him because he won the election and he is "everyone's president." This is my response:

•I will not "work together" to privatize Medicare, cut Social Security and Medicaid.

•I will not "work together" to build a wall.

•I will not "work together" to persecute Muslims.

•I will not "work together" to shut out refugees from other countries.

•I will not "work together" to lower taxes on the 1% and increase taxes on the middle class and poor.

•I will not "work together" to help the President to line his pockets and those of his family and cronies.

•I will not "work together" to weaken and demolish environmental protection.

•I will not "work together" to sell American lands, especially National Parks, to companies which then despoil those lands.

•I will not "work together" to enable the killing of whole species of animals just because they are predators, or inconvenient for a few, or because some people want to get their thrills killing them.

•I will not "work together" to remove civil rights from anyone.

•I will not "work together" to alienate countries that have been our allies for as long as I have been alive.

•I will not "work together" to slash funding for education.

•I will not "work together" to take basic assistance from people who are at the bottom of the socioeconomic ladder.

•I will not "work together" to get rid of common sense regulations on guns.

•I will not "work together" to eliminate the minimum wage.

•I will not "work together" to support so-called "Right To Work" laws, or undermine, weaken or destroy Unions in any way.

•I will not "work together" to suppress scientific research, be it on climate change, fracking, or any other issue where a majority of scientists agree this fascist and his supporters are wrong on the facts.

•I will not "work together" to criminalize abortion or restrict health care for women.

•I will not "work together" to increase the number of nations that have nuclear weapons.

•I will not "work together" to put even more "big money" into politics.

•I will not "work together" to violate the Geneva Convention.

•I will not "work together" to give the Ku Klux Klan, the Nazi Party and white supremacists a seat at the table, or to normalize their hatred.

•I will not "work together" to deny health care to people who need it.

•I will not "work together" to deny medical coverage to people on the basis of a "pre-existing condition."

•I will not "work together" to increase voter suppression.

•I will not "work together" to normalize tyranny.

•I will not “work together” to eliminate or reduce ethical oversight at any level of government.

•I will not "work together" with anyone who is, or admires, tyrants and dictators.

•I will not support anyone that thinks it's OK to put a pipeline to transport oil on Sacred Ground for Native Americans. And, it would run under the Missouri River, which provides drinking water for millions of people. An accident waiting to happen.

•I will not "work together" to legitimize racism, sexism, and authoritarianism.

This is my line, and I AM drawing it.

•I WILL stand for honesty, love, respect for all living beings, and for the beating heart that is the center of Life itself.

•I WILL use my voice and my hands, to reach out to the uninformed, and to anyone who will LISTEN:

That "winning", "being great again", "rich" or even "beautiful" is nothing... When others are sacrificed to glorify its existence.

This appeared on my Facebook News Feed yesterday, and I resonate completely with its content. So, I have signed it and posted this in its entirety on my Lantern of the Hermit blog. One comment was posted (prior to my receiving it) which I AM choosing to keep anonymous on this re-post along with everyone else who signed it, in order to respect their personal privacy. Comment is included, as it shows how we are able to save our Republic:

“In case anyone hasn't noticed, we're in a complete corporate takeover here. The rhetoric about draining the swamp and helping the little guy was never the plan. Now it's time to forget this false alignment with party and join as Americans to fight against this dangerous and very present evil.”

Starve the beast... Abolish the inter-corporate state!

~ March on the Pentagon ~

The American counterculture refers to the period between 1964-1972 when the norms of the 1950s were largely rejected by youth.

Politics in the United States

The Emergence of Counterculture

A counterculture developed in the United States in the late 1960s, lasting from approximately 1964 to 1972, and coinciding with America's involvement in Vietnam. It was characterized by the rejection of conventional social norms—in this case, the norms of the 1950s. The counterculture youth rejected the cultural standards of their parents, specifically regarding racial segregation and initial widespread support for the Vietnam War.

As the 1960s progressed, widespread tensions developed in American society that tended to flow along generational lines regarding the war in Vietnam, race relations, sexual mores, women's rights, traditional modes of authority, and a materialist interpretation of the American Dream. Thanks to widespread economic prosperity, white, middle-class youth—who made up the bulk of the counterculture—had sufficient leisure time to turn their attention to social issues.
Ideals and Interests
Unconventional appearance, music, drugs, communitarian experiments, and sexual liberation were hallmarks of the 1960s counterculture, most of whose members were white, middle-class, young Americans. Hippies became the largest countercultural group in the United States. The counterculture reached its peak in the 1967 "Summer of Love," when thousands of young people flocked to the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco. The counterculture lifestyle integrated many of the ideals of the time, including peace, love, harmony, music, and mysticism. Meditation, yoga, and psychedelic drugs were often embraced as routes to expanding one's consciousness. Spiritually, the counterculture included interest in astrology, the term "Age of Aquarius," and knowing people's astrological signs.
Rejection of mainstream culture was best embodied in the new genres of psychedelic rock music, pop-art, and new explorations in spirituality. Musicians who exemplified this era include The Beatles, The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, The Rolling Stones, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin, and Pink Floyd. New forms of musical presentation also played a key role in spreading the counterculture, mainly large outdoor rock festivals. The climactic live statement of this occurred from August 15-18, 1969, with the Woodstock Music Festival held in Bethel, New York. During this weekend festival, 32 of rock and psychedelic rock's most popular acts performed live outdoors to an audience of half a million people. Countercultural sentiments were expressed in song lyrics and popular sayings of the period, such as "do your own thing"; "turn on, tune in, drop out"; "whatever turns you on"; "eight miles high"; "sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll"; and "light my fire."
Cultural Divisions and the Collapse of the Movement
The counterculture movement divided the country. To some Americans, the movement reflected American ideals of free speech, equality, world peace, and the pursuit of happiness. To others, it reflected a self-indulgent, pointlessly rebellious, unpatriotic, and destructive assault on America's traditional moral order. In an effort to quash the movement, government authorities banned the psychedelic drug LSD, restricted political gatherings, and tried to enforce bans on what they considered obscenity in books, music, theater, and other media.
Ultimately, the counterculture collapsed on its own around 1973. Two primary reasons are cited for the collapse. First, the most popular of the movement's political goals (civil rights, civil liberties, gender equality, environmentalism, and the end of the Vietnam War) had made significant gains, and its most popular social attributes (particularly a "live-and-let-live" mentality in personal lifestyles; i.e., the "sexual revolution") were largely co-opted by mainstream society. Second, a decline of idealism and hedonism occurred as many notable counterculture figures died, and the rest settled into mainstream society to start their own families. The "magic economy" of the 1960s gave way to the stagflation of the 1970s, and many middle-class Americans no longer had the luxury of living outside of conventional social institutions.
The counterculture, however, continues to influence social movements, art, music, and society today, and the post-1973 mainstream society has been in many ways a hybrid of the 1960s establishment and counterculture—seen as the best (or the worst) of both worlds.

"The key to life and death is everywhere to be found, but if you do not find it in your own house, you will find it nowhere. Yet it is before everyone's eyes; no one can live without it; everybody uses it. The poor usually possess more of it than the rich; children play with it in the streets. The uneducated esteem it highly, but the learned often throw it away.  It is a living though invisible substance that is concentrated in nature's cavities, sacred cups, and parts of the human body. It is the only thing from which the Philosopher's Stone can be prepared, and without it, no noble metal can ever be created." ~ An Ancient Riddle

March 4th, 1789: 1st day of Governance under U.S. Constitution

~ Barack Obama's first inauguration on January 20th, 2009 ~

The first inauguration, that of George Washington, took place on April 30, 1789. All subsequent (regular) inaugurations from 1793 until 1933, were held on March 4, the day of the year on which the federal government began operations under the U.S. Constitution in 1789.

Politics in the United States

The exception to this pattern being those years in when March 4 fell on a Sunday. When it did, the public inauguration ceremony would take place on Monday, March 5. This happened on four occasions, in: 1821, 1849, 1877, and 1917. Inauguration Day moved to January 20, beginning in 1937, following ratification of the Twentieth Amendment to the Constitution, where it has remained since. A similar Sunday exception and move to Monday is made around this date as well (which happened in 1957, 1985, and 2013).

Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_presidential_inauguration

On January 20th, 2017, Donald John Trump was inaugurated as 45th President of the United States. The "establishment" candidate, Hillary Rodham Clinton, was denied what was considered to be her "coronation" as our first woman President. However, corruption in the Democratic National Committee brought her down from such a pedestal on Election Day (November 8th, 2016) when an unconventional Republican nominee, Donald Trump, upset her plans to become the next occupant of the White House. Though I chose not to vote for Ms. Clinton or Mr. Trump, my decision to vote for Jill Stein of the Green Party turned out to be an "unconscious" vote for the Republican candidate, as our Republic is designed to fall into a two party system (though not originally intended by the framers). No party affiliation was attributed to George Washington at the start of his first term, yet by the time his second term began supporters of the 1789 Constitution were called "Federalists" and those in opposition were "Anti-Federalists." John Adams, first U.S. President to live in the White House, was also a Federalist, and his successor, Thomas Jefferson, was the first opposition candidate, a "Democratic" Republican, to whom power was passed peacefully on March 4th, 1801. Two parties have been the norm ever since, however some of them have gone into history, such as the Federalists and the Whigs. Jefferson's party is still in existence as the Democratic Party, and an abolitionist party formed in 1854 by Abraham Lincoln is the Republican Party of today whose nominee is now the 45th President of the United States of America... ~ JDHWB-R

The American Relayer - Issue 3: Politics in the United States...


Cathy O'Brien speaking with Dark Journalist

Relevant Website: TRANCE Formation of America

Breaking free of her mind control programming and Dissociative Identity Disorder with the help of intelligence insider Mark Phillips over the course of a decade, Cathy exposed the insidious world of criminal covert operations happening inside Black Budget operations connected with the Pentagon and intelligence agencies, including human trafficking and extensive drug running programs.

Deep State efforts to suppress her testimony culminated in the National Security Act being invoked to silence her and continue right up to the present. Nonetheless Cathy’s latest venture was to create a new workbook, PTSD: Time to Heal that actually allows trauma and sexual abuse victims to reclaim conscious control and deep connection to their inner memories.

Her story has touched thousands of survivors of mind control programming and dark political manipulation and given the public a transparent and shockingly honest vision of the hidden worlds of covert intelligence operations that exist and thrive behind a wall of National Security State secrecy.

Wheels within Wheels

In medieval Judaism, the beginning of the book of Ezekiel was regarded as the most mystical passage in the Bible, and its study was discouraged, except by mature individuals with an extensive grounding in the study of traditional Jewish texts.

Jewish biblical commentaries emphasize that the imagery of the Merkaba is not meant to be taken literally; rather the chariot and its accompanying angels are analogies for the various ways that God reveals Himself in this world.

Maimonides in his 13 principles of faith emphasies that God is not limited to any particular form, as this prophesy might seem to imply.

Chassidic philosophy and Kaballah explain at length what each aspect of this vision represents in this world, and how they in no way imply that God is made up of these forms. The danger of understanding these passages as literal descriptions of God's image likely accounts for the opposition among Torah scholars towards learning this topic without the proper initiation. Jews customarily read the Biblical passages concerning the Merkaba in their synagogues every year on the holiday of Shavuot.


The earliest merkabah speculations were exegetical expositions of the prophetic visions of God in the heavens, and the divine retinue of angels, hosts, and heavenly creatures surrounding God. The earliest evidence suggests that merkabah homiletics did not give rise to ascent experiences - as one rabbinic sage states: "Many have expounded upon the merkabah without ever seeing it".

The Talmudic interdictions concerning merkabah speculation are numerous and widely held. Discussions concerning the merkabah were limited to only the most worthy sages, and admonitory legends are preserved about the dangers of overzealous speculation concerning the merkabah. The sages Rabbi Yochanan Ben Zakkai (d. ca. 80 CE) and later, Rabbi Akiva (d. 135) were deeply involved in merkabah speculation. Rabbi Akiva and his contemporary Rabbi Ishmael ben Elisha are most often the protagonists of later merkabah ascent literature.

Beyond the rabbinic community, Jewish apocalyptists also engaged in visionary speculations concerning the divine realm and the divine creatures which are remarkably similar to the rabbinic material. A small number of texts unearthed at Qumran indicate that the Dead Sea community also engaged in merkabah speculation. Recently uncovered Jewish mystical texts also evidence a deep affinity with the rabbinic merkabah homilies. Recently, considerable scholarly attention has been paid to the use of merkabah themes in early Jewish-Christian circles.

The merkabah homilies eventually consisted of detailed descriptions of multiple layered heavens (usually seven in number), often guarded over by angels, and encircled by flames and lightning. The highest heaven contains seven palaces (hekhalot), and in the innermost palace resides a supreme divine image (God's Glory or an angelic image) seated on a throne, surrounded by awesome hosts who sing God's praise.

When these images were combined with an actual mystical experiential motif of individual ascent (paradoxically called "descent" in most texts) and union is not precisely known. By inference, contemporary historians of Jewish mysticism usually date this development to the third century CE. Again, there is a significant dispute amongst historians over whether these ascent and unitive themes were the result of some "foreign," usually Gnostic, influence, or a natural progression of religious dynamics within rabbinic Judaism.
