HOW WE CAN BRIDGE THE PARTISAN DIVIDE
"Although we come from opposite ends of the political spectrum, we believe our country needs to come together. "The Reunited States of America: How We Can Cross the Partisan Divide" will help us do that. It reconnects us to our country's motto - 'out of many, one' - and helps us meet the challenge of reuniting the country that we both love."

The Monastery and the Rabbi
A Version of The Rabbi's Gift
During Thursday Night Meeting this week at Sirius Community, our Core Group Member representing the Hearthstone Village told us an interesting story that resonated with me as a parallel situation to one we have here: an aging community in search of rebirth. ~ JDHWB-R
THE RABBI'S GIFT
Different Drum version by Dr. M. Scott Peck
The story concerns a monastery that had fallen upon hard times. Once a great order, as a result of waves of antimonastic persecution in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and the rise of secularism in the nineteenth, all its branch houses were lost and it had become decimated to the extent that there were only five monks left in the decaying mother house: the abbot and four others, all over seventy in age. Clearly it was a dying order.
In the deep woods surrounding the monastery there was a little hut that a rabbi from a nearby town occasionally used for a hermitage. Through their many years of prayer and contemplation the old monks had become a bit psychic, so they could always sense when the rabbi was in his hermitage. "The rabbi is in the woods, the rabbi is in the woods again " they would whisper to each other. As he agonized over the imminent death of his order, it occurred to the abbot at one such time to visit the hermitage and ask the rabbi if by some possible chance he could offer any advice that might save the monastery.
The rabbi welcomed the abbot at his hut. But when the abbot explained the purpose of his visit, the rabbi could only commiserate with him. "I know how it is," he exclaimed. "The spirit has gone out of the people. It is the same in my town. Almost no one comes to the synagogue anymore." So the old abbot and the old rabbi wept together. Then they read parts of the Torah and quietly spoke of deep things. The time came when the abbot had to leave. They embraced each other. "It has been a wonderful thing that we should meet after all these years, "the abbot said, "but I have still failed in my purpose for coming here. Is there nothing you can tell me, no piece of advice you can give me that would help me save my dying order?"
"No, I am sorry," the rabbi responded. "I have no advice to give. The only thing I can tell you is that the Messiah is one of you."
When the abbot returned to the monastery his fellow monks gathered around him to ask, "Well what did the rabbi say?" "He couldn't help," the abbot answered. "We just wept and read the Torah together. The only thing he did say, just as I was leaving - it was something cryptic - was that the Messiah is one of us. I don't know what he meant."
In the days and weeks and months that followed, the old monks pondered this and wondered whether there was any possible significance to the rabbi's words. The Messiah is one of us? Could he possibly have meant one of us monks here at the monastery? If that's the case, which one? Do you suppose he meant the abbot? Yes, if he meant anyone, he probably meant Father Abbot. He has been our leader for more than a generation. On the other hand, he might have meant Brother Thomas. Certainly Brother Thomas is a holy man. Everyone knows that Thomas is a man of light. Certainly he could not have meant Brother Elred! Elred gets crotchety at times. But come to think of it, even though he is a thorn in people's sides, when you look back on it, Elred is virtually always right. Often very right. Maybe the rabbi did mean Brother Elred. But surely not Brother Phillip. Phillip is so passive, a real nobody. But then, almost mysteriously, he has a gift for somehow always being there when you need him. He just magically appears by your side. Maybe Phillip is the Messiah. Of course the rabbi didn't mean me. He couldn't possibly have meant me. I'm just an ordinary person. Yet supposing he did? Suppose I am the Messiah? O God, not me. I couldn't be that much for You, could I?
As they contemplated in this manner, the old monks began to treat each other with extraordinary respect on the off chance that one among them might be the Messiah. And on the off off chance that each monk himself might be the Messiah, they began to treat themselves with extraordinary respect.
Because the forest in which it was situated was beautiful, it so happened that people still occasionally came to visit the monastery to picnic on its tiny lawn, to wander along some of its paths, even now and then to go into the dilapidated chapel to meditate. As they did so, without even being conscious of it, they sensed the aura of extraordinary respect that now began to surround the five old monks and seemed to radiate out from them and permeate the atmosphere of the place. There was something strangely attractive, even compelling, about it. Hardly knowing why, they began to come back to the monastery more frequently to picnic, to play, to pray. They began to bring their friends to show them this special place. And their friends brought their friends.
Then it happened that some of the younger men who came to visit the monastery started to talk more and more with the old monks. After a while one asked if he could join them. Then another. And another. So within a few years the monastery had once again become a thriving order and, thanks to the rabbi's gift, a vibrant center of light and spirituality in the realm.

|Full Moon at the Connecting Space|
~ The April full moon is known as the "Pink Moon" and peaks at 2:08 a.m. EDT (0608 GMT). ~
The other day (Palm Sunday) I drove into Northampton, Massachusetts to participate in Dance Spirit, a free-form dancing event held from 10 am – 12 pm in social hall at Congregation B’nai Israel. Where the DJ is stationed, there is a painting by a child who printed her name in hot pink in the middle of it: The same first name as an individual involved with our “doings” online directed at “deconstructing the construct” or holographic projection of Life in third density formerly known as reality. Also, in upper left quadrant of this child's painting are pink clouds. Is Pink a key color that signifies The Event? ~ JDHWB-R

|~ Triumphal Entry of Jesus into Jerusalem ~|
Matthew 21: Verses 1-17 ~ King James Version (KJV)
1 And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and were come to Bethphage, unto the mount of Olives, then sent Jesus two disciples,
2 Saying unto them, Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto me.
3 And if any man say ought unto you, ye shall say, The Lord hath need of them; and straightway he will send them.
4 All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying,
5Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.
6And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them,
7 And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set him thereon.
8 And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way.
9 And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.
10 And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this?
11 And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.
12 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves,
13 And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.
14 And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them.
15 And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying in the temple, and saying, Hosanna to the son of David; they were sore displeased,
16 And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise.
17 And he left them, and went out of the city into Bethany; and he lodged there.

|~ Entrance Arbor to the Underhill Secret Garden ~|
On Good Friday of Easter Week in 2007, I buried the Atlantean Record Crystal at the center of what would become the "Secret Garden" deep in the trees overlooking the garage at No. 16 Wheeler Street in Gloucester, Massachusetts, known as Underhill (Frodo's secret name given to him prior to meeting Strider at The Prancing Pony in Bree). On Saturday night, fire swept through the former Massachusetts State Hospital complex in Danvers punctuating its reconstruction as Avalon Danvers condominiums. The horror film titled "Session 9" was filmed in the original buildings prior to demolition in 2006, and reference to numbered grave "444" where ghost character Mary Hobbs was buried is made in the movie. Then on Easter Sunday, I lighted the Phoenix Lantern above location of the buried Crystal and ceremonially initiated the Underhill Secret Garden. Pink concrete pavers were placed in a equilateral diamond pattern around this spot and used to mark pathway from upper back yard area at Underhill, flanked by white crushed rock and pink concrete bricks. A wooden arbor was erected at the entrance, with a large golden key (used in his school play adaptation of "The Secret Garden" by Frances Hodgson Burnett) hung above start of the walkway. Immediately after creation of this garden at Underhill, a storm blew across eastern Massachusetts, affecting the island of Nantucket (as several homes in Madaket were claimed by the sea due to erosion). I pointed the Phoenix Lantern toward Great Point during inception, where the Catalyst Lantern was buried in 1985, but Angle was incorrect; energy deflected... ~ JDHWB-R

Since I've been offline, so to speak, for over a week, I recorded just a short little update of what's going on, what's not going on, and to drops some hints of new things coming!!

Well folks.... the US just committed an "Act of War" against the sovereign nation of Syria. In today's Transpicuous News episode, I'll be discussing what we know, the historical facts and that fact that history just keeps repeating itself.
Will you swallow the lies of the US government and western media whole? Again?
Just keep Observing. But remember, there comes a time when being neutral no longer serves it purpose, and there comes a time to call the bullshit for what it is. Have we reached that point? Not necessarily.... but we're watching closely as things are now seemingly very transparent.
