Think Strategically – October 2015 Astrology

It looks like October is the kind of month where you’re best to lay low, chill out  and make your plans quietly on the side. Don’t even bother starting something new because it just won’t work. Time to think strategically.

For my Canadian readers, you know election day is fast approaching us on October 19th and I hope that Sith lord called Stephen Harper can be voted out once and for all.

Nom, nom, nom , nom...

nom, nom, nom , nom…

The Canadian Conservatives have to be the rudest, crudest bunch of politicians this country has seen for a while. It’s not a coincidence that Alberta is often referred to as Texas North – conservative politics, oil, cattle and red-neck cowboys and not an ounce of sophistication, enlightenment or refinement among the lot of them. It’s so bad that they even had to get rid of one Conservative candidate, Jerry Bance,  because he was  caught urinating in a teacup (he barely rinsed the cup before putting it back in the cupboard)!
Of course the political left in this country is utterly disorganized and pollsters are having a hard time to figure out what’s really happening. This happened last year in the UK when pollsters were saying that David Cameron wouldn’t win yet he swept in with a majority government. The reason why pollsters are having such hard time is that they normally call landlines, and their polling samples are therefore inherently skewed towards older voters because of that. Since these days everyone has a cell, it’s not as easy getting a clearer picture anymore.
Many are afraid of voter splitting, and so there are now grass-roots appeals and websites showing up on how to vote strategically within your own riding (please pass these websites on to your friends). I figure the first thing to do is get rid of Harper. We can deal with other stuff later on.
On a more global note, I’ve been having this conversation with an astrologer friend of mine and they said that the crazy Saturn-Neptune squares of late means direct implications to issues related to i) water and ii) drugs, around the world.
This very spot is not far from my neighborhood, but it is an older picture. The pipes were taken out about 10 years ago and this spot is now filled with swimmers, fish and ducks in the summer. With this raw sewage dump taking place downstream, who knows what will happen now.

This very spot is not far from my neighborhood, but it is an older picture. The pipes were taken out about 10-15  years ago and this spot is now filled with swimmers, fish and ducks in the summer. With this raw sewage dump taking place downstream, who knows what will happen now.

I found that particular insight very interesting in light of a recent announcement in my current home city of Montreal. The stupid City of Montreal is planning on releasing 8 BILLION liters of raw sewage in the St. Laurence, that same St. Laurence River which is full of whales and which I live very close to. The actual dump site is thankfully nowhere near me, but still this is raw sewage (stuff from your toilet) along with hospital wastes. The joke about Montreal is that its a city with third world infrastructure in a first world nation (it’s a long story but our construction industry is completely corrupt and is run by the Italian Mafia unfortunately).

Douche bag of the year, Martin Shkreli

By now,  everyone knows about that douche bag venture capitalist and hedge fund manager who spiked up the cost of life-saving pills for persons with compromised immune systems from $13 per pill to $750 per pill and was then forced to back-pedal due to the public backlash, becoming the most reviled person on the internet. He still hasn’t said what the new price will be and he’s far from the only person in that industry doing this sort of thing but it shows you a few things; that you’d better not mess around with life-saving drugs and that the pharmaceutical industry at large have now been put on notice thanks to activists, citizens, a handful of enlightened politicians and disruptive, invasive hackers/hacktivists. Good, I say.
The clearer you think about things, plan intelligently, keep your ideas and plans to yourself, stay honest with yourself and not allow anyone to push your emotional buttons too much,  the more manageable a month it should be.

Whales, Fjords, Blood Moons and Apocalypse Naught

Fjords don’t only exist in Norway.
Quebec also has its share of them, albeit, not nearly as high, dramatic and jagged as the mountains of Norway. They start showing up along the North Shore of Quebec’s St.Laurence River, an area known for its remoteness, fjords, rugged natural beauty and whales.

The tiny village of Tadoussac is one such hot spot. With the oldest chapel in North America, one of the earliest settlements and a former trading post, Tadoussac is also one of the most active whale watching spots in the world.

Beluga whales, minke whales, sperm whales, right whales and the biggest of them all, blue whales are regularly sighted here since it is a confluence of the St. Laurence (salty water)  and Saguenay (fresh water) rivers, giving the whales a safe and protected place to eat and get fat during the summer and fall, before they make the long migration to the Tierra del Fuego at the bottom of South America.

Aside from the whales, the energy here is off the charts. I think the Manicouagan meteor/crater and the island and lake it formed, the so-called “Eye of Quebec”, probably also have something to do with it.  Maybe that’s why such high-frequency animals like whales also like it here.

I was there this past weekend and I found the timing of the chance to go very interesting since it coincided with last Sunday night’s Blood Moon/lunar eclipse (which some websites seemed to be going apeshit over) AND Pope Francis’ visit to the US.

My 11 month-old nephew was with us so we couldn’t take a Zodiac boat which would have afforded us a closer look at the whales, but rather we took a whale watching ferry-boat. Even then, we managed to see a whole pod of white beluga whales frolicking around us,

…and 4 minke whales came very close to the boat. One of them came out of the water practically 10 feet away from me, so close to the side of the boat that I was practically looking down directly into its blowhole.

When you get this close to these giant, majestic beasts of nature in their natural habitat, a few thoughts immediately hit you: 1) We’re nothing but an existential speck of dust in the grand scheme of things 2) There are species of beings on this planet what are far older and wiser than we ever will be 3) Human beings, as we are now, act like  annoying, immature,  invasive pest species 4) The natural world can transform us and heal us if we let it and take the right attitude. 5) We still have so much to learn and improve on.

Truth and justice are like whales in many ways, you may not see them often, they hide in the depths, in secret places you and I will never experience, they are very shy creatures, they only come up for air and are seen here and there but when you do see them, they are gifts that leave an indelible mark on you forever after. They are immensely powerful beasts who don’t realize their own strength, where even a random flip of their fin or tail can inadvertently kill or harm.  Love them and they will love you right back and show themselves to you. They are creatures which have taken on a mythical and mystical status, the stuff of legends and folk tales, but just because you don’t always see them, doesn’t mean that they are not there, dreaming, singing, remembering and on occasion, surfacing.

The End-Posts Have Shifted


If you get talking to historians and political scientists, they usually say that politics works along the lines of the pendulum effect. One decade may mean a radical shift to the right: (i.e the 1980s with Margaret Thatcher in the UK,  Reagan and Bush Sr. in the US)

Reagan and Thatcher, two right-wing hawks

 followed by a decade of a shift to the left (Bill Clinton in the US and Tony Blair in the UK – only these guys really weren’t on the “left”, they were and are pro-business, neo-liberals who just aren’t as crazy as the right-wing alternatives)
Clinton and Blair, two peas in a pod of crooks

…followed by an extreme shift to the right again (Bush Jr and Blair/Brown) and to the “left” again (Obama, Cameron/Clegg) so the natural expectation would be that the pendulum is going to go right again.

Only I don’t think that’s going to happen again.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock this past weekend, it’s hard not to notice that Jeremy Corbyn won the Labour Party leadership race with nearly 60% of the popular vote, when London bookies had him at 200:1 odds of ever winning.  Corbyn is an open social democrat, a vegetarian teetotaler, who is against the nuclear arms race and rides his bicycle to work, calls out fat-cat Conservative MPs,  and has called for Tony Blair to be tried as a war criminal for his participation in starting the war in Iraq (which he should be imho, along with Bush Jr., Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz and Donald Rumsfeld) and has a pretty positive view on the world and on life.
It’s been kind of hilarious to watch the usual establishment-types trying to demonize Corbyn, and then have the blow-back hit them right back in the face. The public aren’t putting up with it. Even Alfred E Neuman lookalike and right-wing nutter Tony Abbott down in Australia  also got his just desserts this past weekend.

The thing with pendulums is that, the right-left-right-left-right-left dynamic only works as long as the two end-posts stay where they are….but move them and the pendulum’s dynamics change completely and I think that is what has happened here.

Observing this refugee crisis in Europe, the way the public have often stepped up to the plate in trying to welcome or accommodate refugees, in many cases going against official government policy like in Hungary, Corbyn’s insane popularity despite being “un-electable” (Labour received 15 000 new member applications in his first 24 hours alone mostly with young voters), how Bernie Sander’s popularity in the US has the Democratic party establishment already shaking in their boots, the sleeping giant of public and popular resistance, while not yet fully awake, is restlessly moving in his sleep.

If any of you have ever had to train a puppy or take it to obedience school, then you know that the more you try pulling on the lease, the more the puppy tries pulling the other way. The puppy isn’t trying to piss you off, it’s just trying to go where it wants to go.  Yet, many of these government leaders seem to think that the public, in this day and age, are like robotic puppies which will do as they say and I’m afraid that ship has sailed and it ain’t coming back.
Many hard-line government officials seem to think most of the public are not very intelligent and that is just not true. Look at any political leader, specifically those who came out of elite schools, privileged backgrounds, lots of letters behind their names from prestigious universities and so forth.

Hell, look at some of the profs teaching them and you’ll see a bunch of smart but spoiled brat kids, most of whom have personality disorders like Narcissistic Personality Disorder (usually Somatic or Cerebral Narcissists) or Borderline Personality Disorder. Little brats, who were probably obnoxious, entitled kids, usually come from extremely privileged backgrounds, who never did an honest day’s worth of hard work, never rolled up their sleeves and got their hands dirty with work , never had to work very hard for anything because it was always given to them, don’t have an ounce of genuine common sense among the lot of them, no real-world experience and zero street smarts or meaningful insight – the kind of kid in your class who was probably listening to The Osmond family, while everyone else was listening to David Bowie or Roxy Music, and yet, these are the same annoying brats who end up becoming professors, policy wonks and agenda setters who tell the rest of the world what to do and how to live, particularly people whose problems they don’t even have a clue about or know how to relate to in their day-to-day lives because they don’t fraternize with them.  I can’t wait for the day people like that go the way of the dinosaur.

Alternative media, instantaneous information flows, all of it is working against them now, and they know it. So what will they do? Probably try to rein in public opinion in their favor with smear campaigns, scare tactics like they way they have already started against Corbyn and Sanders.
Max Igan put out a very powerful podcast last weekend about the refugee crisis in Europe. The gist of it, according to Max, is that these wars in the Middle East are orchestrated because the ultimate aim is to re-draw the maps of that region according to American and Israel interests, based on an influential  essay by Israeli academic Oded Yinon called ” A Strategy for Israel in the Nineteen Eighties” ( essay originally appeared in Hebrew in KIVUNIM (Directions), A Journal for Judaism and Zionism; Issue No, 14–Winter, 5742, February 1982, Editor: Yoram Beck. Editorial Committee: Eli Eyal, Yoram Beck, Amnon Hadari, Yohanan Manor, Elieser Schweid. Published by the Department of Publicity/The World Zionist Organization, Jerusalem.)
That these wars were meant to induce the refugee problem, they’ll let in the refugees for now, there will be a terrorist incident somewhere down the line, the refugees will get blamed and it will be an excuse to tighten national security and get rid of more of our personal rights and freedoms even more. I honest-to-God hope Max is wrong on this, I really do. I’d like to think people are more savvy than that, particularly younger people who have less loyalty to established parties and associations than their parents and grandparents did.
See, one of the pluses I see out of this refugee crisis, for example, is that some European politicians and the European public will now think twice when the US, Israel and the Saudis decide to go in and randomly start up another war in the Middle East. I don’t think the French, Germans, Italians and even the Brits will be as willing to sign up the next time around. I think they may even question the war rhetoric even more closely from now on.
From a spiritual point of view, I know many prophets and sages in the past have said that more and more enlightened leaders will be showing up in the next little while, advanced souls designated to help humanity change direction from the collision course its currently on. Again, something I hope is true but I’ll believe it when I see it in real terms.
It relies on a deep belief in reincarnation, which I don’t have a problem with. I do however, have a problem with the way reincarnation is interpreted at times.
Linda Goodman

Linda Goodman

Just to go off on a small tangent for a bit, the late American astrologer Linda Goodman once wrote about Lexigrams, a little-known but very insightful tool for deconstructing words and names. There are a few websites which go into Lexigramming in a deeper way but if you want to spend a pleasant afternoon by yourself in a café, grab a copy of her book “Star Signs”, a notepad and a pen and go Lexigramming. What’s odd about doing them, is that what you start coming up with is usually a reflection of what’s happening with YOU yourself on some level.

“1000 grammes” café and cake shop in Montreal’s Gay Village, one of my favorite places to read, think, work, people watch and generally just hang and be left alone.

So to go back to the point on reincarnation, sages and gurus and lots of New Age sites say that the whole point to reincarnation and for us to take on life time after time,  is that we are hear to LEARN. Look at the word LEARN and you’ll also find EARN, LEAN and NEAL (kneel). I don’t think that’s why we’re here. I think we’re here to problem-SOLVE and EVOLVE and if you look at those words closely it also has the world LOVE within them.
Think about it.
Enlightened politics is nothing more that enlightened problem-solving.  In the meantime, all we can do is keep our blinders off and keep pushing those end-posts even more in whatever way we can individually.

September 2015 Astrology – Put On Your Truth Goggles

I don’t pay much attention to most astrologers nowadays with the exception of Carl Boudreau and Steve Judd. Carl has a very academic background coupled with a lot of insight based on a lifetime of personal spiritual experiences. Steve also has an extensive background in astrology, but he’s also involved with crop circles research and esoteric orders in the UK which also informs his work.

I find many of the Youtube astrologers nowadays unfortunately start to sound the same month to month. It’s almost as if language itself has run out of archetypes to adequately describe the new energies and what’s really happening. It’s always joy, abundance, romance, money or ascension, it would seem, practically to the point where it has become formulaic.

The tradition Western Zodiac in comic book form.

I just don’t find any of them really have a grasp on deeper, more intuitive and esoteric level of what’s really happening in the cosmos.

clichéd archetypes

I’m having this discussion with someone but with some of these difficult planetary ingresses we’ve had since 2008, it is like Earth has gone through a vortex of sorts, new energies are afoot and the old archetypes of the original 12 signs and energies of the Western zodiac, while not completely outdated, are falling short of really encompassing and describing what’s happening. My own opinion is that as consciousness widens among more and more people, as the veil of reality thins even more, those new archetypes will make themselves felt in due course.

By Brazilian political cartoonist Carlos Latuff, on how most politicians in Europe would prefer to deal with the “migrant” problem.

So, having said all that, September 2015 is looking like the kind of month which can easily destabilize anyone who isn’t sufficiently grounded in themselves first and foremost. With 2 eclipses and the autumn equinox due to hit us, internet and conspiracy online talk of all sorts of speculative theories of a cosmic cloud hitting us, Pope Francis’s first visit to the US which will surely piss off conservative Republicans and darlings of the pro-capitalist Neo-Liberal posse, the heated Labour Party leadership race in the UK, an election campaign in full force in Canada, and the ongoing refugee (NOT migrant) problem hitting Europe on all sides, due to Western military dumbfuckery (in fact the next time a boatload of refugees appear, IMHO they should be automatically airlifted and dropped off at Senator John McCain’s front yard along with every other war monger who pushed these conflicts in Syria, Libya, Iraq etc. and started this fiasco.)

There’s going to be a lot of spin, a lot of stories being told, on TV, in the papers, online, anything and everything to get you to believe whoever or whatever those in power want you to believe and think. This is where your own ability to discern the truth is going to come in handy and that ability is inside of you. Stay grounded, stay perceptive, don’t allow over-emotionalism or sensationalism to cloud your judgement.  Make your own decisions. It is the kind of time, where everyone will either go bat-shit crazy or play the drama queen. The one who has a steely, clear-eyed, quiet focus is the one who will understand and see what’s really happening.
Shields up, Captain.

”Gaslighting” Reality


As some of you know, I’m quite a film buff and especially enjoy watching old movies or indie movies from the festival circuit. It’s quite easy here in Montreal especially to catch up on films, given the kind of publicly funded resources we have.
Recently, I have been reading up on Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) because of some counseling work I’m helping out with. I was actually quite floored by several books and websites which categorically stated that many malignant narcissists and people with NPD often employ a tactic called “gaslighting”.
Charles Boyer (Gregory) and Ingrid Bergman (Paula)

Charles Boyer (Gregory) and Ingrid Bergman (Paula)

The term was coined after the well-known 1944 classic film “Gaslight” with Ingrid Bergman and Charles Boyer. In the film Bergman, plays Paula, a former opera singer who saw the death of her opera-singing aunt by an unidentified jewel thief who had strangled her and then fled the scene. Traumatized by the event in London, Paula relocates to Italy as a teenager and undergoes opera training there to only fall in love and fall under the spell of her older Hungarian piano teacher, Gregory Anton, who it turns out, is none other that the murderous jewel thief himself. Assuming a new name, he gets into Paula’s good books, marries her and convinces her to move back into the old London house. His aim is of course to find the aunt’s priceless jewels which are hidden somewhere in the attic. Little by little, he starts to make Paula go crazy. Placing things in her purse when she’s not looking, removing paintings off the wall and then making her believe that she did it (when she did not), putting words in her mouth and generally isolating the woman socially from anyone and everyone else so he can carry his plans out uninterrupted and unsuspected.

The ultimate aim of gaslighting is of course make the intended person start to question their own sanity and sense of reality and it is a technique which not only narcissists, but people who emotionally or psychologically abuse others use regularly from their bag of tricks. The person becomes super vulnerable and then is open to suggestion for all sorts of things which they normally would never fall for.
Folks, I think to a certain degree, we’ve all been gaslighted.
I mean, to a certain degree we’ve all fallen for certain myths or stories, which served to undermine us as individuals and empowers who ever made up the story or the myth because it serves their purpose. Politicians, economists, business marketers are all to blame.  Do you really need Coca Cola to live? No, you need water.

Cassel Pink Diamond ring, .79 carats, you can have this for a mere $1.3 million dollars at M.S Rau Antiques in Louisiana

A small example would be the myth of the value of diamonds and the extravagant costs of engagement rings nowadays and what they symbolize. I always thought they were bit of a joke. I wasn’t wrong. The whole damn thing is a marketing myth perpetuated by the DeBeers Corporation. When celebrity magazines write stories about Jennifer Aniston’s ring and people being dumb enough to actually fall for it or care or reality TV bridezillas only talk about the ring for 20 minutes…well, all I see at that point is someone so caught up in an illusion that you probably can’t even have a decent, meaningful conversation about anything with them
I don't think you should be going there, dude.

I don’t think you should be going there, dude.

Another area I’m seeing gaslighting is the idea of the “happy long term marriage”, particularly those perpetuated by dishonest spouses.  I’m watching this Ashley Madison leak scandal literally with a wry smile on my face. While I feel bad for those persons whose names and emails were used in creating bogus profiles, I don’t have very much sympathy for those very real cheating husbands (95% of the users of Ashley Madison are male) who signed up for the service and now have proven paid accounts with their credit cards with Ashley Madison.
What the hackers who stole the Ashley Madison data wrote.

What the hackers who stole the Ashley Madison data had to say.

I’ve been keeping an eye on the 4chan/b/ board since the hackers there have been working with the leaked data and just waiting for the big, well-known names to start spilling out along with the non-famous ones like some neighbor on my street or former high school teacher.
Already there’s intense speculation about the kinds of powerful names we may find and some articles are going so far as saying that this leak will pull apart the fabric of society as we know it. 
Goddess Shakthi. In Hindu lore, she is the cause. She is also known as Maya, the supreme illusion. The world is itself an illusion. Nothing is forever. The only reality is the presence of Cosmic Intelligence within all beings, small, medium or large.

Goddess Shakthi. In Hindu lore, she is the cause. She is also known as Maya, the supreme illusion. The world is itself an illusion. Nothing is forever. The only reality is the presence of Cosmic Intelligence within all beings, small, medium or large.

To that I say, good. It’s about time.
Prophecy, New Age writers  and even some religious texts say that the veil of deception and ignorance is thinning and will one day disappear completely. That there will come a day, where a person will not even be able to lie because that’s how clearly we’ll be able to see through each other. Some New Agers go so far as to say we will become crystalline beings but I don’t take that literally. It’s a symbolic interpretation of what’s to come. Hindus and Buddhists call this veil Maya, Theosophists call it the unveiling of Isis (the goddess, not the terrorist group, though that would be good too). I say the gaslighting has to stop. The myths have to stop. The stories have to stop. The lies have to stop.
Because to be perfectly frank with you, the ones who want to continue with the lies, I think, like the Ashley Madison story shows, are going to be exposed, one way or another. What’s great about not lying is that you never have to remember anything, You may not get ahead in business or in politics, but your mind and your heart stays clear and to me, that’s more than enough.

Oh, Here We Go Again…

Part of my daily internet ritual is scoping out a few key sites and checking out their daily roster of new articles. This includes David Icke’s headlines section, In5D news section, Phoenix is Risen, Philosopher’s Stone, TruthDig and Information Clearing House.

Already a number of articles and Youtube videos are appearing that September 23, 2015 is going to be the new date of some kind of a transformation in much the same way December 21, 2012 and before that December 31, 1999 were heralded as days when the real shit was going to hit the fan.
Honestly, I don’t know what it is with some New Agers, Apocalypse-watchers, End Times survivalists and people who are really into fear porn but it’s almost as if they really want widespread death and mayhem because it somehow validates their position and proves them right.

Not Hope. Nope.

With talk of items like institutionalized racism, income inequality and the death of the mainstream media and presstitutes, entering MAINSTREAM political jargon and discourse and not of some marginal Marxist website, whether you realize it or not, that has a very real trickle-down effect on people. When you talk to people intelligently, people usually start talking back to you just as intelligently, and gosh has the political public discourse changed in even the last few months.  Quite gratifying to watch, if you ask me.
Cirque Du Soleil in Las Vegas

Cirque Du Soleil in Las Vegas

I just don’t think the shift will be a sudden, dramatic “TA-DA” moment like some Las Vegas Cirque du Soleil show production. Rather, I think it is a form of evolution along with a combination of some change in the cosmic climate. A combination of grass-roots change from the bottom meeting the change in the ethers.
John of Patmos watches the New Jerusalem descending on Earth from heaven.

John of Patmos watches the New Jerusalem descending on Earth from heaven in his visions of the Apocalypse.

Some websites and some videos are saying that UFO Disclosure will finally happen. The Alex Jones conspiracy crew seem to think it has something to do with Jade Helm.
Listen, this is what will happen.
Women will still have their monthly periods which seems to freak out some men.
Donald Trump will still be a dick.
People will continue to dream dreams of revolution.
I will still drink my morning cup of chai.
What may or may not be different will be how YOU decide to decipher the world around you. There’s that famous fable which Paulo Coelho once wrote of, that the Secret to Happiness is to take in the wonders of the palace while never spilling the two drops of precious oil in your spoon.
In other words, we all live in this world but we are not of it and really it’s about taking our loftiest aspirations and bringing them down into the everyday and immediate.
Just stay real. The more authentically you live with yourself, the clearer you’ll see things around you. And take action.

Humbug Mountain, Mount Shasta and Nature at work in your Face

Mount Shasta, California

Mount Shasta, California

“When you go into the mountains, all you see are the forests, springs, lakes and peaks. But in the mountains there are also caves, underground rivers and deep caverns. Think of these sometimes, as well as of the beings that live in them, so that you can be their friend. Mountains are not simply masses of earth and rocks; they are containers for enormous treasures: crystals, stones and precious metals, which powerful entities watch over and work with. I am not saying this in order for you to go venturing into caves, armed with picks and pickaxes, to dig tunnels in the hope of finding seams of gold and silver.  No.  Pay attention to the symbolic, living aspect of mountains, whether you climb them or else dig deep in yourself to find spiritual treasure. “
– Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov

Humbug Mountain

Looking at Humbug Mountain from its South side.

Looking at Humbug Mountain from its South side.

Humbug Mountain sits just south of a tiny town on the Oregon coast called Port Orford. At 1756 feet it is the highest point on the Oregon Coast and a mountain which was once used as a site for vision quests by local Native American tribes, a fact which would have been lost in the annals of time had it not been for an out-of-print guidebook I found about the Oregon Coast written by local insiders I found in a second-hand book shop in Montreal. When I tried researching further if this was true, there were zero sources online, but given the fact that this is the highest mountain right on the ocean, it would make sense why this particular mountain has some special significance.

Humbug Mountain sits within the confines of the Eden-like Humbug Mountain State Park, a place which strongly reminded me of another magical place and one of my favorite places on Earth, Olympos, Turkey. Both are located in a tiny valley, mountains on all sides, with a river/brook cutting through the valley which then leads out to a magnificent beach. Olympos, an ancient pirate hide-out, is strewn with ancient Greek, Roman and Byzantine ruins in the midst of orange, lemon and pomegranate orchards and people stay in tree houses and the protected pebble beach is a breeding site for the endangered loggerhead turtle.

Humbug Mountain may not have ancient ruins but instead is draped with a lush, prehistoric temperate forest, giant ferns, giant Pacific pine trees, moss and clover and the beach, while sandy, small and private, has numerous seals and whales visiting within sight of the shore, and people stay in tents or RVs.

Paralleled but different. The hike up to the top is about 5km long and while it is longer , it’s also far easier and more gentle than Neahkahnie Mountain. You have plenty of time to meditate and think things over while you walk up through one of the most beautiful forests I’ve seen in my life. It’s a funny mountain; one side is completely forested and wild, and the other side is just hard rock and literally drops into the ocean. The top unfortunately has a blocked view now. The trees have grown so there’s not much of a view, but there is a tiny meadow, and should any of you ever find yourself there, and it is a day not crowded by other hikers, you have plenty of space to meditate, pray or do ceremony of your choice. The vibe here is very, very peaceful. I hung out for a good hour and offered tobacco and made my way down.

Mount Shasta

What can I say about this place that hasn’t already been said or written already?  The modern-day superstar of the New Age movement, Shasta is so many things to so many people. To the culty I AM movement, it is their world headquarters (their compound is near the base actually) and apparently sightings of St. Germain or Melchizedek or UFOs are common, depending on who you talk to. To channelers, the underground city of Telos, populated by ancient Lemurians sits underneath the mountain, to the Klamath Indians, the local Native tribe, it is the resting place of the spirit chief Skell after he fought Llao, creating Crater Lake. You can spend a lifetime reading about the various myths of this mountain if you really wanted to.

 What happened to me was quite different. I got to Shasta by driving south, from Oregon, along Interstate 5. Shasta at  14 000 feet is a giant of a mountain and can be seen from hundreds of miles away. Once I passed Ashland and saw my first sight of Shasta, I don’t know why but I just started crying. The mountain had called and I came.

I’m not going to talk too much about Mount Shasta town or Mount Shasta Boulevard which has at least 8 crystal shops in the space of 2 blocks. Or how most of the books at the main New Age shop, “Soul Connections” had titles, 95% of which were channeled material from God-knows-what “spirit” or entity of uncertain origin. Or how the main crystal shop is selling crystal bowls, giant geos and original visionary artwork and paintings in the tens of  thousands of dollars range.

They had to build up a wall and cordon off the source of the springs due to overuse and degradation of the land.

Or the fact that Panther Meadow Springs is now cordoned off to help the delicate plants there come back to life (some of them take hundreds of years to do so) since that meadow has been overused and trampled through by entitled, sanctimonious New Agers, neo-pagan hippies and idiot, hipster campers with zero respect, over the years. So much so, that the spring ran dry for the first time in its recorded history last year.

Or the New Age tourists I had to yell at who ignored the designated trail completely and decided that getting to the spring was their main focus and didn’t give a shit that they were trampling through a delicate alpine ecosystem which is trying to recover. That kind of stupidity and disrespect is happening all the time on the mountain. 

Stick to the trail, don't walk on the grass or meadow.

Stick to the trail, don’t walk on the grass or meadow.

However, the mountain is big enough and powerful enough to swallow up these tiny botherations. The road up to the final overview lookout at 7000 feet above sea level, is 20 km long (about 14 miles) and it winds its way to the middle of the mountain. Along the way, you’ll first see medium sized redwoods, which then give way to pine trees, which then give way to dwarf pines, which them give way to lichen and moss and then finally bare rock and snow, due to altitudinal zonation..

Funny enough, the soil and rock of the mountain looks almost pink or lavender in certain spots. You will see the change in vegetation the further up you go along the mountain, things get smaller and smaller the higher up you go. It also gets quieter and quieter and the sunlight gets brighter and brighter. People say mountains are holy places and that it is easier to have spiritual insights there, but I’m not sure if altitude sickness has something to do with it also. The symbolism is also obvious; the higher up into the mountains you go, the further you get away from this world and its sophomoric occupations.  

The treeline stops very quickly from Bunny Flat.

The treeline stops very quickly from Bunny Flat.

I lucked out and got a spot to camp at the Panther Meadows Campground, the only designated spot to camp on the mountain and no where near the springs. There are 12 spots and it is usually first come, first served and I managed to get one of the last available slots. If you have never camped at 7000 feet in your life, it is an experience I would recommended to anyone. At night, it gets super cold, the wind starts blowing off the peaks of Shasta. It got so windy, it started rocking my tent and woke me up around midnight or so. When I looked out, I was rewarded with probably one of the most unforgettable scenes in my life. The entire mountain and forest were flooded in silver moonlight, so bright that you wouldn’t need a flashlight at all. The millions of stars could clearly been seen in the clear night sky and the outlined shadows of the alpine trees, super tall, straight and narrow, made me realize these were not normal trees. They looked like sentinels guarding the mountain. You could practically feel them watching you.


Panther Meadows is split in two, Lower Panther Meadow and Upper Panther Meadow, where the source spring is. Upper Panther Meadow is up for registration on the National Register of Historical Places in the US, given it has been considered a holy site long before the Europeans ever arrived and still in continuous use. People think that by coming here, taking a fuck-ton of pictures to show up to their friends back home that somehow, they’ll have a “spiritual experience” here but I don’t think that’s how this place works at all.

The source of Panther Meadows Springs, can you see the two circles where the water gurgles out?

The source of Panther Meadows Springs, can you see the two circles where the water gurgles out of the ground?

This is a place where you offer prayers, you give it to the waters and let the waters carry them away from you, that’s it, no more. But with New Agers leaving behind “offerings” of plastic angels, Lemurian rock crystals and what not, disrespectful hikers walking wherever , the vibe has changed. It has become a tourist spot and now the only time you can ever really be here all alone is either in the middle of the night or right around dawn. It’s full of people all day long now.

The end of the Shasta road, where the treeline vanishes completely. The hike begins here.

The end of the Shasta road, where the treeline vanishes completely. The hike begins here.

The real place for leaving behind offerings is literally , at the end of the Shasta road, at the Old Ski Bowl. The treeline abruptly ends and from there you can try hiking the remainder of the 7000 feet to the summit, if you have the right mountain climbing gear.

It is even more insanely quiet and brighter here than at Panther Meadow. The overlook is strewn with rocks, boulders and rubble from the mountain itself and past pilgrims have started doing devotional rock formations here like;

rock mandalas…

Rock mandala.

Rock mandala.

and spirals,

Rock spiral at Mount Shasta.

This was the end of the road for me too. I burnt the sigils here and left the final bit of tobacco and mixed it into the soil of the mountain itself. Someone had started a giant rock spiral so I collected a few more rocks and added to it as well. I hope it keeps growing.

I now understand why pilgrims carry so much emotional resonance with them when they do pilgrimages. It is the doing of an act of faith and there’s no guarantee you’ll get to do it or finish it.  The late meta-physical teacher Stuart Wilde offered a wonderfully simple prayer. It went  “Please God, don’t let me go until I can fix this” and I think I understand the essence of that. It is really not about what you can receive, but rather what you can give and it is in the act of giving, with no expectation, no reward, nothing transactional nor conditional “If you give me this then I’ll do that”, that you end up receiving, a point which unfortunately is completely lost on New Age fetishists, religious fundamentalists , faux-yoga celebrity bunnies and the like. I think it is time we all changed that, don’t you?

As I write this, a few noteworthy developments are taking place. Astrologer Steve Judd was the first one to call it out in June. He basically said that the recent Saturn retrograde back into Scorpio from Sagittarius was a signal that some more unsavory truths about the private lives of prominent people was going to come out. And his prediction was correct.


David Icke has been saying from at least 1998 that former late, British Prime Minister, Edward Heath was a murderous pedophile, and now it looks like a victim has finally come forward with evidence and there is going to be an official investigation against Heath among other very prominent British politicians. This isn’t conspiracy theory territory anymore, this is in the mainstream media. Whether you want to admit it or not, London is still the intellectual, financial and political capital of this Earth. Places like Washington DC, Los Angeles, Paris, Rome etc. are all just satellite centers. If London, the City of London, Westminster and the British establishment collapse, there will be a domino effect around the world. Count on it.

The truth, like a panther, seems to be stalking, closer and closer to its prey. Not quite yet going for the jugular, but inching ever so closely to its target with each passing minute.  Even more uncomfortable truths are going to come out and it leads me to believe that the age of subversion, greed and self-interest is coming to an end. The climate for it is vanishing. Evolve and adapt and try to start to get real or stay phony and go the way of the Dodo Bird. It’s your choice.

Mountains, Sigils and Blessings

View of Neahkahnie Mountain and parts of Nehalem Bay from the hamlet of Wheeler, OR

View of Neahkahnie Mountain and parts of Nehalem Bay from the hamlet of Wheeler, OR

“When we see high mountain peaks from a great distance, we instinctively sense that mountains represent a link between earth and heaven, both physically, of course, and even more so spiritually. A great wisdom presided at the formation of the mountains, and where they are situated is never due to chance. Each one is assigned a definite function, which is why they all differ in shape, mass and height. Their peaks rise up like antennae intended for emitting and picking up waves of different frequencies. Each peak therefore creates particular conditions, which can support the activity of our soul and our spirit. And we all have inner mountains we need to climb if we are to communicate with heaven. This is why, for our spiritual life, it is so important that we understand the significance of the word ‘peak’ or ‘summit’.
If you want to get results on a spiritual level you have to climb up to the top of the mountain. The mountain I am referring to is your own mountain, your own casual body. You have to scale the heights of your casual body in order to rise above the mist and dust. ‘Mist’, ‘dust’ and ‘mountain’ are of course all symbols. Dust is that which clouds the mind when it has lingered on too many different paths, and mist is produced by the humidity of the heart when it is exaggeratedly emotional and sentimental and it too prevents you from seeing clearly. In order to escape from the dust of the mind and the mists of the heart, we have to rise above the astral and mental planes and reach the casual plane. This is why, in your meditations and prayers, you should always try to rise, to rise very high, as high as possible. In fact, why not use your imagination and picture yourself scaling a mountain? The picture in your mind will lead you to another mountain, the one inside you, and when you reach the top, the casual plane, you will find so many more ways open to you for the realization of your spiritual thoughts and desires. In the Kabbala, God is called the Most High because symbolically, power and omniscience are to be found on the higher planes.”

– Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov


Alright folks, I’m back from holiday.
I did not expect this to happen but I returned to the Pacific Northwest and specifically the Oregon Coast and Mount Shasta, California. But it turns out the mountains there were calling me and dropping sizeable hints and cosmic breadcrumbs even in Montreal and so, like Mohammed, if the mountain can’t come to you, you go to it.
Last year I briefly visited Neahkahnie Mountain and did Crater Lake and Orcas Island. This year I hiked and climbed Neahkahnie to the top. Ditto Humbug Mountain and ditto Mount Shasta. However, before I go into describing these places, their symbolic significance and what came to me afterwards, I need to back up quite a bit.

For those of you who have been reading my blog for a while, you already know that music, namely 1980s British alternative, underground, “college radio” music and music scene from the 1980s played a pretty huge part of my teen years and it’s still a musical genre I consider my favourite. Besides the clubs, the fashion, the music, it really kind of moulded my outlook on a lot of things, appreciating and preferring the little-known, the marginal and the obscure over the mainstream.

The Smiths back in 1985. This reunion will never happen.

The Smiths back in 1985. This reunion will never happen.

Some, like the guys from Depeche Mode, Morrissey of The Smiths, Robert Smith of the The Cure and Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails (NiN) fame have aged and transitioned well from that era and are still regarded as highly influential and highly regarded musicians. I mean Trent Reznor won an Oscar for scoring the film “The Social Network” a few years ago. I still remember seeing him in NiN in 1989 as the opening act for Peter Murphy when no one knew who NiN were! Unfortunately, many others haven’t. I always kind of keep a tab on some of these artists since I still have such warm, fuzzy feelings for them.


One of my favourite bands, bar-none, from that era are the Godfathers of Goth, Bauhaus and by extension, Love & Rockets. Bass player, David J. Haskins recently wrote a book called “Who Killed Mister Moonlight? Bauhaus, Black Magick and Benediction”. If you’re a music industry junkie, you’ll love this book, everyone makes an appearance from David Bowie, Catherine Deneuve, William S. Burroughs, Iggy Pop, Ian Curtis and Joy Division, Rick Ruben, Chris Martin of Coldplay, Perry Farrell of Jane’s Addiction and Lolapalooza and tons more. It’s not the name-dropping which particularly impressed me. David J. is a fantastic writer but in the tradition of many British musical artists, he also seems to have an interest in the supernatural and the occult, not unlike Jimmy Page or Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin fame. There are some incidents in the book which I don’t recommend reading at night if you get scared easily but it was Chapter Six, entitled, “Sigils” which particularly caught my attention.

“…Among those in the pile was a copy of V.Vales’s Research #4/5, which featured interesting articles and interviews with (William S.) Burroughs, Brion Gysin, and Genesis P. Orridge…In one of these articles, Genesis talks about sigils – an occult technique whereby one writes down a desire in very simple direct language. Any letters that are repeated are used to form a symbol that represents that desire. The sigil is then “charged” by concentrating on it and visualizing it as glowing brighter and brighter while focusing one’s will on the intention and sending it out into the universe. The original is then burnt, and it is then necessary to forget all about it. I decided to give it a shot.”

There are many websites and Youtube videos on how to create sigils and such, should anyone be interested, but it got me thinking that a lot of the prison-like reality many people live in, is controlled by symbols and corporate sigils of someone else’s making.


Logo for Procter and Gamble. This is a corporate sigil, whether you realize it or not.

Think about logos or brands for instance. Are they not forms of sigils many of us don’t want nor care for? I figure if they can do it, why can’t we also play the same game and beat them to it by creating sigils of our own which benefit everyone? (I should note here; if you are going to work with sigils, a reminder that anything you ask for, for yourself only unfortunately falls under black magick since it comes under ego, white magick is based on altruism, when you ask for something with benefits everyone, no exceptions. Intention counts for everything here.)  As soon as I finished reading the book, that’s when the signs really started coming in that I needed to go to Oregon and California and specifically those three aforementioned mountains. So I went.

Neahkahnie Mountain
Nehalem Bay and the surrounding area is probably one of the most picturesque and pleasant areas along the mystical Oregon coast and rife with stories and legends. Nehalem Bay comprises the small villages of Manzanita, Nehalem and Wheeler and Neahkahnie Mountain dominates the skyline of this area.

With the pounding ocean, beaches and the mountain on one side, you have the river which feeds into a protected bay, a gorgeous valley and even more mountains surrounding on the other side. Wheeler is the home of the “Wheeler Moment” , a strange phenomena where synchronicities take place regularly in the area. Neahkahnie Mountain itself is considered an auspicious place by Native American tribes, a place where “the Good Spirit abides”. The last time I came, I offered tobacco to the mountain. This time I was asked to climb it. Suffice to say, that it is NOT an easy hike, unless hiking is already a huge part of your life, it’s a good 4 km hike from the base along the Oregon Coastal Trail to the top. I eventually got there, offered tobacco and worked with the sigils and then hiked back down.

The Old Wheeler Hotel

The Old Wheeler Hotel

The next day, I woke up after having the most pleasant dreams I’ve had in quite a while, the kind that finding you smiling when you wake up. I stayed in a magical, somewhat haunted B & B called the Old Wheeler Hotel and had a view of the mountain from my room. There is no doubt in my mind that whole area between Route 53 and Highway 101, and Nehalem Bay itself has a giant energy vortex there, a very pure and positive one which hardly anyone seems to know about. It’s not a coincidence that there’s even a place nearby called God’s Valley. (Go now before the New Age freaks take over!)

A day later I found myself in Cape Lookout State Park. When I asked one of the park rangers if the whales were migrating at the time, (Cape Lookout is a very good place for whale watching), he mentioned there were some the week before but no one had seen anything recently. I found myself in a remote part of the beach and asked for a sign of validation if what I did was right. The second I asked, the whales appeared, water spouts and fins and all, four of them.

Next stop: Humbug Mountain and Mount Shasta

Unemployed Angels (and July 2015 Astrology)


A few weeks ago I watched this interview between noted alternative ancient archaeology researcher Graham Hancock and Lorna Byrne.

For those of you who read alternative sites regularly or listen to shows like Coast to Coast AM, or watch “Ancient Aliens” on the History Channel, Hancock’s name is a familiar one. A former reporter for The Economist, Hancock’s books explain ancient pre-history with a clarity and rigor which is often lacking in other researchers hence why their work is super easy to dismiss.
Hancock, along with Rupert Sheldrake, also has the distinction of being one of the very few persons to have their TED talks yanked off the TED website, because of their “lack of evidence”.
Until I watched the above video, I had never heard of Lorna Byrne but it turns out she’s one of the foremost experts in the world on angelology (as opposed to demonology). Lorna sees angels and has been seeing them her whole life. She kept it to herself for most of her life until she decided to write a book about it, “Angels in my Hair”, and subsequently, many others.
For those of you who may not know, Graham Hancock took a year off from being in the public eye, mostly due to an incident that had happened to him while on a series of Ayahuasca sessions. Apparently, during those sessions, he encountered a negative entity of some sort and it shook him up so badly that he needed the time off in order to process what he had experienced (from letter 4 onwards). It’s one thing to read about demons and the devil or hear about it or watch films about it, but when you actually encounter something, it is a completely different ballgame so I can understand why he decided to disappear from the public for a while. It also makes sense why he would seek out Lorna and have a chat with her about angels.
Intrigued, I went out and got Lorna’s book and it is a very, very accessible read. Lorna takes the mystical and makes it familiar and immediate. There’s no high-falutin’ language or esoteric terms which you need to look up in a glossary or anything of the sort.
I find when I read accounts of mystical experiences from the likes of say Emmanuel Swedenborg, St. Hildegard von Bingen or William Blake ,very often, it can get so esoteric, so vague and so outside of the realm of anything even remotely relate-able, that unless you have the exact same visions or experiences, you’ll never understand what they are talking about. Lorna’s experiences are the total opposite of that – it was nice to read about beings in this universe that actually care about us, for once.
"Angels appearing to the Shepherds" by William Blake

“Angels appearing to the Shepherds” by William Blake

As is usually the case, Lorna has been called out as a fraud and a charlatan, but after reading her book and in particular her descriptions of how angels and positive entities appear and work, it sounded so similar to the artwork of Canadian mystic Alma Rumball  and how Alma portrayed these energies, that it goes beyond coincidental, it is a correlation.
The Angel Gabriel - by Alma Rumball, from the Alma Rumball Facebook page

The Angel Gabriel – by Alma Rumball, from the Alma Rumball Facebook page

One thing which I found particularly touching which Lorna wrote was that the angels feel neglected and “unemployed”, everyone is so preoccupied with the bad stuff that we overlook the good stuff and the good allies which are there to help. All we need to do is ask and look for the signs.
Which leads me to July’s astrology. After June’s euphoria, it’s understandable that things are a bit of a let-down afterwards. It’s time to wait, ponder, build a better mouse-trap and just try to “be” because apparently things are going to build up again in August.
I’m off on holiday.
I’m going to ask the angels along as well.
We’ll see what happens :-)

A Turn on The Path

When I wrote up last month’s post about the Whirled Rainbow Prophecy, I had no idea how that was going to be played out but lo and behold, same-sex marriage is now legally recognized across the United States and the Confederate flag has been pulled in several states. In one extraordinary week, diversity and inclusion got a huge win. A massive plus, in my books.



Unfortunately it never comes without a price. Eight black churches have been burned to the ground in the Southern US in the last two weeks and Confederate Flag apologists have been lamenting online how they feel they have been marginalized, how the bravery of Confederate soldiers during the American Civil War will now be forgotten. (Bullshit. If you want to feel what it’s like to be marginalized, imagine what it must have felt like to have a lynch mob hot on your heels to hang you up on a tree afterwards and no one there to help you and for no other reason than the color of your skin.) Opponents of same-sex marriage now think we’re all on some dangerous slippery slope towards a society which practices wide-spread polygamy. As if.
You're kidding me, right? You're going to tell me lots of women out there want to be a part of this???

You’re kidding me, right? You’re going to tell me lots of women out there want to be a part of this??? Who wants to clean up all these diapers?

There seems to be a very interesting form of energy afoot now. I’m seeing it mostly in the States, but it is spilling over in other places as well.
First of all, I find it very amusing that the bigots are showing themselves up in the most spectacular way possible. King of the Douchebags, gazillionaire Donald Trump decided to throw his hat in for the 2016 Republican nomination for President. He then went on to insult the entire population of Mexico by calling Mexicans rapists and drug pushers and how he’s going to close the border and come down hard on illegal immigrants. The problem is that Hispanics and Latinos make up a huge part of the voting base in the US and are the largest minority group by far. But that’s OK. Mexico is solving the problem by making Donald Trump-inspired pinatas. Much more fun and effective than voodoo dolls if you ask me.
Where can I get a  stick and join in the fun?

Where can I get a stick and join in the fun?

My favorite socialist in the US, the former mayor of Burlington, Bernie Sanders of Vermont is also running for President and is drawing rock-star crowds everywhere he goes.
If he gets in, it will be a miracle. But if he doesn’t get the Democratic nomination, I just hope he doesn’t just tell his voters to vote for Hillary because she’s just more of the same-old, same-old and by that I mean another mouthpiece for the interests of Wall Street.  She’s already said she’s going to bomb Iran if she gets in. I mean really? Who wants George W. Bush Part II ?
What Sander’s campaign is showing up is that many, many people seem to have woken up from the myth of the American Dream, saw the nightmare it became with shrinking pay checks, fewer jobs, a widening gap of income inequality and want to take their country back from the billionaires, industrialists and hedge-fund managers. And I say all the power to them if they can pull it off effectively and do what they say they will do.
July 1st is Canada Day and July 4th is Independence Day in the US. A lot of my friends and I decided not to celebrate Canada Day given what Canada Day really means, the conquest, genocide and flat-out robbery of a landmass from First Nation’s peoples in the name of the British and French Crowns which they are still unfortunately paying for. It’s not very difficult not to celebrate it especially in Quebec, since most separatist Québécois could care less about Canada Day or the British Crown and just use it as a moving day instead.
A common scene on the streets of Montreal every July 1st.

A common scene on the streets of Montreal every July 1st.

Not that it is any better in the United States.
Read the Declaration of Independence carefully and you’ll see what a bigoted document it really is, how Eurocentric the wording is and how they call First Nation’s people as outright “savages”.  Sorry, but that’s not kosher in my book. On a spiritual level, when you have that kind of wording in such a primary document in the setting up of your nation or state or company or whatever, whether it is the Constitution or the Declaration of Independence or whatever, you’re basically weaving that energy of racism and bigotry into the consciousness of this new entity from the get-go…and all these centuries later it is still there. But people are slowly but surely questioning things. That’s at least hopeful.
Good for you Greece - I'm going to enjoy watching the domino effect out of this.

Good for you Greece – I’m going to enjoy watching the domino effect out of this.

The Greeks have told the German and IMF banksters to fuck off by voting “NO” against austerity measures. I don’t think things are going to get easier for Greece anytime soon but I do think voting NO and deciding the road they want to choose for themselves is a step in the right direction. Self-determination is always empowering. Who cares if banksters are getting the jitters and the value of the Euro goes down? The European Union was a bad idea in the first place. Bigger isn’t always better and bloated bureaucracies full of technocrats telling other people how to lead their lives will always be a recipe for disaster. It happened in Rome, in happened to the Ottomans, it happened to the British and it will continue to happen until people learn to wise up and learn to mind their own business instead of financially coercing them.
What I find hilarious is how right-wing American Republicans and conservatives and climate change deniers are going apeshit over this Pope and what he says. I don’t want to go too deeply into the theology but their interpretation of the Bible is that Man is at the top of the pyramid and we’re meant to rape and pillage this Earth as much as we want to.
According to them, Jesus basically wants you to live in a McMansion in Texas, have five SUVs in your driveway, buy $15 000 purses for your wife and feed your kids as much Taco Bell as possible. The Pope has called for another interpretation, where Man is a custodian and guardian of Creation and by failing to protect Creation, we fail ourselves.  In many ways, what he and the Catholic Church are FINALLY saying is in line with what Aboriginal and Native teachings have said all along: We are a part of that Web of Life, destroy or hurt one part of that web, and it will eventually hurt us too.
And you're going to tell me that humankind and their activities ISN'T having an affect on life on this the planet. Go to hell.

And you’re going to tell me that humankind and their activities ISN’T having an adverse effect on life on this the planet. Go to hell.

The one theme I see emerging from all these examples is that there IS a change of consciousness happening. It’s right there under your noses in the mainstream, if you want to see it. It’s not some little story you can pick up from obscure conspiracy theory websites. The interesting thing is that once the genii is out of the bottle, it ain’t going back in. Like after seeing a picture, you can’t “unsee” it anymore. When masses and masses of people start talking and thinking about certain ideas or make a move towards a common ideal at the same time, like Muslims raising money to help rebuild the burned down African-American churches in the South for Ramadan or that fellow in Great Britain who decided to start an Indigogo crowdfunding campaign to help out Greece. People reaching out to others, past bureaucracies, past technocrats, past banksters, politicians and CEOs and for no other reason than to help others who might be in a bind and because it adds to the common good … well, it reminds me of that quote by French novelist Victor Hugo, “Nothing is as powerful as an idea whose time has come.” Things are far from perfect but I think, we may finally be on our way towards a slightly more empathetic civilization and one based on the ideas of global citizenship, not a local or national one. It’s about time, if you ask me.

A Powerful Portent of Change

My Sundays are pretty chill. I’m either baking cookies, watering my plants, riding my bicycle and napping beside the river or visiting my dad. Yesterday happened to be Dad visit day.
I’m fairly certain I get my interest in spirituality, mysticism and all things woo-woo from him. My dad married much later in life but during his bachelorhood during the last days of British India, he had quite a number of adventures in Northern India and the Himalayan foothills.  As I had written previously, Assam is the seat of the magical arts within the Indian subcontinent and my dad did his fair share of spending time around Hindu sadhus, gurus and Muslim fakirs and saw lots of things which he just won’t talk about now. Long story short: whenever I hear or see something “off”, my dad is one of the first persons I talk to.
So on my way to my dad’s place yesterday, I caught sight of something in the sky which I had never seen before: a very vivid and perfectly circular rainbow around the sun. It was close to noon so the sun was directly overhead and I had to strain my neck to take in the complete circle and use my fist to block out the actual sun. I called my dad on my phone and told him to look up and see if he could also see it. He could and he did. Like me, he too had never seen such a thing either in his life and was not sure what it meant. We watched it and then within 20 minutes it had disappeared, with shifting clouds, wind and atmospheric conditions. It didn’t last long at all and no one else on the street seemed to notice it either. My first thought and impression was that it was some kind of an energetic portal allowing certain energies to come through. Also with the Sun in the center and the perfect circle around it, it immediately reminded me of some of Aivanhov’s teachings around the circle and the center.
After doing some online research, it would seem the Native Americans have the most information about this phenomena. Native spirituality is really big on strange natural phenomena, they attach meaning to things like lightning and thunder and have teachings around them as well.
Some call it a Sun Halo, others call it a Whirling Rainbow or a Sun Dog. It would seem the various teachings are unanimous about it: Whirling rainbows are very, very powerful portents of change and it would seem for some traditional Native people and wisdom-keepers, the Sun Dog or Whirling Rainbow is considered to be a sign from Creator, marking a time of great change, or transition on the Earth. This full-circle rainbow around the Sun, some elders say, can be understood as a sign to people of the necessity to live a life in respect and harmony with all the creations that make life possible: plants, animals, waters, minerals, fires, winds, and other human beings.
Sun Dogs also symbolize an emerging understanding about a time of great change on the earth. They are a sky sign among those wisdom-keepers who know how to read the future in the clouds and sky reflecting a time of transition. (To the best of my knowledge Mikhael Aivanhov and his master, Peter Deunov had the ability to “read” clouds, not from a meteorological point of view but from a spiritual one, the clouds could tell you absolutely everything you needed to know about a particular city or town and the frequency of the people there. It is a rare and almost-unheard of talent and ability nowadays.)

There is even a Whirling Rainbow Prophecy which I would encourage everyone to read. There are parts of it, I can immediately see as relating to certain things happening in the world right now.

The Whirling Rainbow is the promise of peace among all Nations and all people. The Rainbow Race stresses equality and opposes the idea of a superior race that would control or conquer other races. The Rainbow Race brings peace through the understanding that all races are one. The unity of all colors, all creeds working together for the good of the whole, is the idea that is embodied in the Whirling Rainbow. When all pathways to wholeness are respected by all cultures, the prophecy of the Whirling Rainbow will be completed.

Canada just passed Bill C-24, which in essence allows 1st class and 2nd class citizenship to happen, another piece of legislation which that bigot Stephen Harper has created. The gist of it is if you happen to hold dual citizenship and if you get into trouble overseas (i.e like needing to be evacuated in case of war breaking out) the Government of Canada will not help you and also has the right to strip you of your citizenship in case you are arrested overseas. If you were born in Canada, you’ll get full consular help and all the assistance that you need. What the prophecy signals is that people like Harper, bigots and other racial supremacists have their days numbered.

The prophecy of the Whirling Rainbow was very specific.  When the Time of the White Buffalo approaches, the third generation of the White Eyes’ children will grow their hair and speak of love as the healer of the Children of the Earth.
These children will seek new ways of understanding themselves and others. They will wear feathers and beads and paint their faces. They will seek the Elders of the Red Race and drink of their wisdom. These white-eyed children will be a sign that the Ancestors are returning in white bodies, but they are Red on the inside. They will learn to walk the Earth Mother in balance again and  reform the idea of the white chiefs. These children will be tested as they were when they were Red ancestors by unnatural substances like firewater to see if they can remain on the Sacred Path.

I don’t want to go into a discussion of cultural appropriation here just now, but when a corporate retailer like Urban Outfitters starts selling smudge sticks, dream catchers and other items related to Native American spirituality, well then you know there are more and more people who want to walk the Red Road, even if they may not know how to do it correctly. Also, the work of the late Dr. Ian Stevenson, proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that many kids are now being born with full past life memory and from diametrically different cultures. It would stand to reason that many Elders and sages from the past are coming back.

The generation of Flower Children have moved through this part of the prophecy and some have remained on the Sacred Path. Others were lost for a while and are now returning to the natural way of being. Some were disillusioned and have forgotten the high ideals that gave them life when their hearts were young, but others still are waking up and quickening into remembering.

Flower Power!

Flower Power!

This relates directly to the hippies, baby boomers and Flower Children of the 1960s. It’s usually a joke among some people how many of these hippies from the 1960s went on to become ruthless and extremely successful businessmen. (i.e the guys from Ben & Jerry‘s ice cream, Steve Jobs, the CEO of Stonybrook Farms yogurt, Anita Roddick from the Body Shop etc.) It would seem that some of those persons who “sold out” are going to have a change of heart. I know one of the guys from  Ben & Jerry is pushing for GMO labeling on everything.


The beginning of this Fifth World will be like the wobbly pony that on being born would try to use his legs. She said that the wobble would be felt by the the Earth Mother and the changes would occur in the soil and the waters. Inside the Children of the Earth, the wobble would create rolling emotions and feelings that would bring the quickening and the remembering. Colorful dreams would be brought into the Sleep time and Dream time dreams of these newborn Warriors of the Rainbow and they would begin to learn how to Walk in Balance. The changes in our Earth Mother would create fear in her children, which would later lead to the understanding and unity of Our Planet–One People.  

Have you been on an emotional roller-caster the last few years? Having strange nonsensical dreams?
Join the club.

The Whirling Rainbow will appear in the form of a Sun Dog to those who are ready to see. The Sun Dog is a full Rainbow Circle around the sun that has bright white lights at the Four Directions. The Sun Dog is a rare natural phenomenon that was named by Native Americans. The name is now used by scientists all over the world. Many Sun Dogs will be seen around the time of the White Buffalo, which will be the Sky Language sign that the Secret and Sacred Teachings are to be shared with all races. Enough of the Children of Earth will be awakened to carry the responsibility of the teachings and the healing process will begin in full swing.  
Do any of you know how to "read" rivers?

Do any of you know how to “read” rivers?

Secret and Sacred teachings? Cloud and sky reading like I mentioned earlier. Energetic landscape and earth reading like I do. Water reading. Fire reading. Those gifts and teachings are coming back and if some of you happen to be fortunate enough to be blessed with this ability, develop it, nurture it, run with it and share.

The change in feelings the Children of the Earth would have during the wobble or healing process as the Whirling Rainbows permeated their dreams. They said many will remember their purpose for being on this Earth Walk and will learn to develop their gifts to assist the whole of humanity. Truth will shatter the bonds of separation and goodness will prevail. Some details of Earth changes will come into the dreams of those who are being warned to move where they will be safe. Others will be told that their talents will be needed in areas where the changes occur. Everyone will have to trust their personal vision and follow their hearts in order to assist the whole. Each person will be able to use their gifts with joy and share equally in the bounty created by all those working together. 

Have you had the feeling that you have to move and move soon? Do it. (Personally I wouldn’t go anywhere near Yellowstone Park.) Figure out what makes you HAPPY, not what makes you rich, or privileged or will increase your “status”. Here’s a hint: If something makes you happy and gives you feeling of warmth and serenity, it’s probably good for you. If something causes your stomach to churn, the shoulders to tighten up and creates chaos in your mind, it’s probably bad for you.
There will come a day when people of all races, colors, and creeds will put aside their differences. They will come together in love, joining hands in unification, to heal the Earth and all Her children. They will move over the Earth like a great Whirling Rainbow, bringing peace, understanding and healing everywhere they go. Many creatures thought to be extinct or mythical will resurface at this time; the great trees that perished will return almost overnight. All living things will flourish, drawing sustenance from the breast of our Mother, the Earth.
The great spiritual Teachers who walked the Earth and taught the basics of the truths of the Whirling Rainbow Prophecy will return and walk amongst us once more, sharing their power and understanding with all. We will learn how to see and hear in a sacred manner. Men and women will be equals in the way Creator intended them to be; all children will be safe anywhere they want to go. Elders will be respected and valued for their contributions to life. Their wisdom will be sought out. The whole Human race will be called The People and there will be no more war, sickness or hunger forever.
With the astrological conditions of late, and a sighting of a Whirling Rainbow, I’m convinced some new energy is afoot now, the natural world is saying something, something positive, which I don’t think the Powers That Be can deal with completely.
I quote C.S Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia quite a bit here (since I think he actually channeled some of those books). There’s a scene in “The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe”, when Narnia had been under a 100 year winter and suddenly Father Christmas shows up. He said that he couldn’t make it through all this time because the Witch’s evil magic prevented him from entering Narnia.
“I’ve come at last. She has kept me out for a long time, but I have got in at last. Aslan is on the move. The Witch’s magic is weakening.”

June 2015 Astrology – The Game Changer has Arrived

In all my years of reading, listening or watching  astrological forecasts, I have never seen anything quite like this. It would seem like the heavens themselves are opening a powerful and POSITIVE door of opportunity and perception which many of us have not seen nor experienced in years. For those of you who want and welcome positive change, your chance has come. For those of you who dislike positive change for whatever cockamamie reason, you will get it too.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Change is an inevitable fact of life, it becomes easier to deal with when you yourself direct the change and are proactive as opposed to being reactive and allow change to direct you.
The gist of this month is this: Take back your power, take it back from corporations, marketing companies, bullying teachers, spouses or parents, religion, any kind of “ism” which implanted ideas into your mind which no longer serve you and/or which continue to hold you back.
Have an awesome Strawberry Moon Month!
(P.S Shout-out to Steve Judd – Steve was in Montreal in May and I had the pleasure of meeting him and having a delightful reading with him. If he’s ever in your neck of the woods, book a reading with him. Highly, highly recommended!)
Cumulatively, astrological conditions in June mark a historical watershed – a major historical turning point. June’s composite chart describes a veritable vortex, or maelstrom, of powerful transformative energies that will dramatically affect our feelings and our ideas about the world we live in…. …It is impossible that the world could survive the release of this much transformative energy, however essentially benevolent, without numerous and notable mishaps on a collective and individual level. The complexity, intensity and volume of energies are such that it will be impossible, or highly unrealistic, to connect many events with specific astrological causes. …We must be prepared for the unexpected and not jump to conclusions about the meaning of events. Collective Consciousness and You … We are beginning to understand and, indeed, experience ourselves, as caught up in collective consciousness….With the advent of concepts like “political correctness” in the 1980s and 90s, we have all begun taking personal responsibility for identifying, correcting and fighting back against errors in collective consciousness. The advent of the internet has made personal involvement with mass consciousness a day-to-day reality. The collective consciousness is no longer an abstract, impersonal force, located somewhere “out there,” as it was once thought to be. It is something that touches our lives intimately on a day to day, moment to moment basis…. Management of the collective consciousness is no longer left to academics, politicians, marketing firms and government agencies. Increasingly, we are all beginning to take responsibility for the quality of ideas in collective consciousness and how we allow them to affect us. June 2015 – Why Now, Though? If the planets are related to the intensity and frequency of the inner crises many are reporting, why did those crises begin only recently. I think the answer is fairly simple and it is apparent in June’s charts….Our personal transformative process is being drawn into and affected by the global transformative processes. I think that much is clear…. Numberless individuals, groups, agencies, and so on at all levels, across the globe, are deeply rethinking their policies on issues of major social importance. Without exaggeration, it could take years, perhaps many years before we fully appreciate the nature and extent of the changes triggered by June’s aspects. We are experiencing a profound, simultaneous purging of the individual and collective consciousness in very high energy, high pressure conditions that will peak in June….I will not even begin to pretend that it’s possible to describe this process in words or traces specific causes and effects. Let’s just say something like a nuclear fusion reaction is taking place in the core of our collective consciousness. That reaction is affecting each of us at a core energetic level.

A Vision of Things to Come

Apologies Shifters for not writing much these past few weeks – I’m also in the midst of a shift myself and Montreal went straight from winter right into summer these last few weeks and the warm weather leaves very little inclination to write.  That’s not to say that there isn’t much brewing in my kettle. I’ve been keeping a keen eye on a number of things which I will write about later but this story came up which I think is important enough that it merits an immediate response.

I found out about this story after it was posted on Macy Afterlife: The Beacon‘s blog.  It’s about the unintentional prophecies of Paul Dienach.

Never heard of him? Neither did I until I read that blog post.

Paul Amadeus Dienach was a Swiss-Austrian teacher with delicate health. His father was a German-speaking Swiss and his mother was an Austrian from Salzburg. Dienach travelled to Greece in the Autumn of 1922, after having recovered from a one-year coma caused by a serious illness, hoping that the mild climate would improve his condition.

During his time in Greece, Dienach taught French and German language lessons at the university. Amongst his students was George Papahatzis, a student that Dienach  appeared to favour. Papahatzis describes his teacher as a “very cautious and very modest man that used to emphasize the details”.

It is believed that he eventually  died from tuberculosis in Athens, Greece, or on his way back to his homeland through Italy, probably during the first quarter of 1924.

Before Paul Dienach died, he entrusted Papahatzis with  his diary. Without telling Papahatzis what the notes were, he left him with the simple instructions that he should use the documents to improve his German by translating them from German to Greek.

Papahatzis did as he asked. Initially, he believed Dienach had written a novel, but as he progressed with translations, he soon realized the notes were actually his diary… from the future!

Dienach is thought to have suffered from Encephalitis lethargica, a strange neurological disease that develops an immune system response to overloaded neurons. The first time Dienach fell into a lethargic sleep it was for 15 minutes. The second time it was for a whole year…

During this year that Dienach was in a coma in a Geneva hospital, he claimed to have entered the body of another person, Andreas Northam, who lived in the year 3906 AD.

Once he recovered from his coma, Dienach didn’t talk to anyone about his remarkable experience because he thought everyone would think he was crazy. However, what he did do was write down the entirety of his memory relating to what he had seen of the future. Towards the end of his life, he even stopped his teaching  in order to have as much time as possible to write everything he could remember.

Dienach describes everything he experienced of the environment and people of the year 3906 AD, according to the mind-set and limited knowledge of a 20th century man. This was not an easy task for Dienach. There were many things he claims not to have understood about what he saw, nor was he familiar with all their terms, technology, or the evolutionary path they had followed.

In his memoires, he claims that the people of the future fully understood his peculiar medical situation, which they called “conscious slide“, and they told Dienach as many things as they could in relation to the historical events that took place between the 21st and 39th century. They only thing they didn’t tell him was the exact story of the 20th century, in case Dienach’s consciousness returned back to his original body and era (as he did) – they believed it would be dangerous to let him know his immediate future and the future of his era in case it disturbed or altered the path of history and his life.

By reading Dienach’s story and visions, we have an important peek into the future in relation to mankind, our planet, and our evolution…and a choice to change our current trajectory.

Dienach’s story was published in book for in the 1920s as “The Valley of the Roses” but the church had such a fit over it, that it was quickly forgotten…except not by the Masons. The book has recently been re-published but has still not yet translated from the original Greek which I am hoping will change very soon.

Here is Macy Afterlife’s entire blog post with the addition of some pictures and links which I’ve added.


Life-Swapping: The Amazing Story and Prophecies of Paul Dienach

A teacher of humanities goes into a year-long coma in 1921, assumes life in one of his incarnations—a famous physics professor living in the year 3906—and then returns to his body a year later, in 1922… waking up not only with a crash-course understanding of physics, but with working knowledge of what will transpire on Earth during the next 2,000 years.

Sounds like a pitch for a good sci-fi novel… but it’s actually the true-life story of Swiss schoolteacher Paul Amadeus Dienach, who emerged from a state of protracted narcolepsy in 1922, and recorded all of his vivid recollections in a journal… which would later become a book, The Valley of the Roses.

Paul Dienach was teaching Greek Studies in Switzerland at the time of the incident. Here’s the backstory… or “frontstory?”…:

In 3906, famous physics professor Andreas Northam suffers a serious accident and has a near-death experience (NDE). When he awakens moments later, he speaks in an unknown tongue (presumably 20th-Century Swiss), he doesn’t recognize his family members, and he’s unable to sleep. He’s perpetually awake. Meanwhile, in 1921, schoolteacher Dienach falls into a coma and is perpetually asleep for a year, unable to wake up.

What really happened? My guess is… the finer spirit within us lives multiple concurrent lives… so that the finer spirit within me, for example, is living not just my life as Mark Macy, but various other “concurrent” lives in different times and different places. It’s what we call different incarnations.

In the 1921/3906 case, there’s a finer spirit involved in the lives of both men, and I suspect it becomes disoriented during Northam’s near-death upheaval in 3906. The astral body leaves Northam’s 3906 body and doesn’t return as it normally would after a typical NDE. Instead, Dienach’s 1921 astral body becomes detached from his physical body and is pulled into Northam’s 3906 physical body by mistake… or maybe facilitated by spirit guides???


In any case, that puts 1921 Dienach into a state of perpetual sleep… the astral body’s left the building. And it puts 3906 Northam into a state of perpetual wakefulness… possessed as he is by an unexpected astral guest from the year 1921. Dienach’s astral mind is now experiencing carnal life through the eyes of Northam’s carnal body. It’s got to be perplexing!… experiencing 3906 physical Earth through a 1921 mental template.

It’s certainly perplexing to all of the medical doctors… in both time periods. The 1921 physicians diagnose the inert Dienach with an inexplicable case of “lethargic sleep.” The 3906 physicians do a complete examination of the wide-awake, anxious Northam, can’t explain his symptoms, and attribute them to his NDE.


While Dienach sleeps peacefully in 1921, Northam is vigorously re-educated about all aspects of life on 3906 Earth… including a detailed history of the planet during the past 2,000 years.

Eventually, Dienach’s astral body returns from its futuristic adventure and reenters its 1921 physical body… and Paul Dienach emerges from his coma, eager to record the adventure on paper.


The Future of Humanity According to Paul Dienach

The whole idea that Paul Dienach falls into coma in 1921, lives in another incarnation in the year 3906 as physicist Andreas Northam, then awakens in 1922 with future knowledge, probably makes little sense unless you take into account the notion that the mind, memory, and personality continue to exist and function beyond space and time while the physical body is asleep, or comatose, or even dead. It’s just our material body that’s trapped in the illusion of time and space, while our essence enjoys a timeless existence in our astral body… and it’s Dienach’s astral body that detaches from the present carnal life, enters a future carnal life, then returns.

Read more about our spiritual make-up…

Following are some of the insights that Dienach woke up with in 1922… which would be regarded as history by people living in 3906, and as prophecy by people alive in 1922 (and by people today).


Upon awakening in 1922 from his year-long coma, Paul Dienach wrote down everything he could remember about his experiences while living in one of his incarnations as physicist Andreas Northam in the year 3906.

Dienach continued to teach Greek studies in Switzerland until he contracted a fatal case of tuberculosis at age 38. Before his death he entrusted his manuscripts to one of his students, George Papahatzis, who would later become Dean at Panteion University, founded in Athens in 1927.

An obscure version of the manuscript was published in German in the 1920s, and a recent version was published in Greek under the title “The Valley of the Roses.” At present it is available only in Greek.

Following is a synopsis of that book… the events as remembered by Paul Dienach that will transpire on Earth over the next 2,000 years. Bear in mind, this is the illusory sense of “time” we’re talking about… so don’t write the dates in your calendar in indelible ink. Also, this article is based on several translations of excerpts from the book, and may not be fully in line with the actual book.



Humanity begins to solve overpopulation, ecological destruction, greenhouse gases, climate change, famine, tyranny, and regional conflict. Discoveries are made in the interactions of electromagnetic energies, gravity, spiritual energy (etherodynamics), and antigravity, resulting in a Nobel Prize in the physical sciences.

Most of Earth’s gravitational energies are attributed to solar radiation. Science can photograph spiritual energies , and more and more people can see the spirits moving in and out of our world by switching on their inner “etheric vision,” as psychic channels do today.

Economic systems become more humane, wise, and based on good will. People are freed from the slavery of financial survival, affording them more time for inner work and spiritual development. The monetary system goes extinct, child mortality becomes a rarity, and fossil fuels are replaced by sustainable energies.

Our carnivorous inclinations fade away as we become vegetarians.

Mars is colonized in 2204 by 20 million people, but they are all destroyed in 2265 by a massive natural disaster, and the goal of future Mars colonization is then abandoned.

Colony on Mars...not a good idea.

Colony on Mars…not a good idea.


A major world war erupts in 2309 with widespread destruction. Humanity survives, and a world government is established in 2396 to prevent such disasters in the future. Leaders elected through direct voting from all nations are mostly scientists, engineers, and humanitarians… no longer politicians or businessmen. A balance of power is sustained by a working alliance among the private sector (e.g. transnational corporations), national governments, and the world government.

Banks and stock exchanges are now extinct, replaced with a sort of “vote-money” (which is probably an electronic measure of real value of products, resources, and energy).

There’s still some private property, although world resources have been redistributed in such a way that everyone is afforded at least a basic, healthy standard of living.

Contact is established and relationships develop with extraterrestrial civilizations, and the public is kept apprised.

First contact.

First contact.

Conflicts among large groups are rare, and large-scale war is a thing of the past.


The threat of global totalitarianism begins to rise as savage groups begin to undermine the world government through cyber-piracy. By 2600, the private sector and national governments play only a minor role in world affairs as people have acquired a planetary consciousness. World government begins to work extraordinarily well as the savage groups are quelled and direct voting becomes a way of life.

World transportation is primarily through spiritual (etheric) energies and flying discs.


While equality has been achieved for basic necessities, there’s still some inequity in technological advancement from region to region.

More and more people become telepathic, and science makes tremendous strides. Much is learned about the interior of the planet, including an “internal sun and atmosphere” and its history spanning billions of years. Cities are built in the Earth’s interior.

MAP of Inner Earth

In medical science, pharmaceutical drugs play a small role, replaced by new treatments in sound, color, light, and meditation.

Despite these major advances, humans remain largely materially oriented and spiritually sluggish… measuring their personal success in terms of their possessions and technologies.


Beginning in 3382, a spiritual renaissance begins to quickly transform the world into a state of “hypervision,” in which most people achieve direct knowledge through connections with the finer spiritual light. People on Earth can now create through intention, as is done in the finer spiritual realms.

We enter a new Golden Age of World Civilization. Many of the leaders in world government are now universal creators, rather than just scientists and engineers. The new leaders combine the qualities of philosopher, scientist, artist, mystic, and more.

Planetary languages are developed based on three-dimensional, inner-vision images that are projected mentally without sound, writing or Internet.

Science has discovered an activated a dormant form of DNA that consists of more than two strands.

Everyone now has access to free clothes, food, housing, transportation, entertainment, scientific products, and creative expression. There is no private property. Everyone is vegetarian, and there are no zoos… no animal slavery or abuse of any kind.

Flying discs are obsolete, replaced by a new form of transportation involving “field gates” (which are probably portals between the physical and spiritual realms in which material vehicles and their occupants are raised to a finer, nonphysical vibration, moved instantly to another location in three-dimensional space, and rematerialized). These spiritual technologies are introduced to Earth by other galactic civilizations, now that humanity is ready (which apparently means that humans have finally transformed their noble-savage nature into a predominantly noble one).

Read more about our noble-savage nature…

By today’s standards, the future humans would seem naïve, sensitive, sincere, unpretentious, and free of cunning ulterior motives. People can sense each other’s feelings and intentions, so secrecy is no longer part of human culture.

The day will come when all you have to do is look at someone's aura and you'll have them figured out completely.

The day will come when all you have to do is look at someone’s aura and you’ll have them figured out completely.

There are no material inequalities, only inequalities of reputation, honor, and public appraisal.

People work the equivalent of two years over a lifetime, which by now is much longer than lifetimes of the 21st Century, and they don’t measure success by material possessions, but by spiritual work within and by their service to those around them.


Well, these visions that came to Paul Dienach during his coma certainly resonate with the views and intentions of this site. May your greatest dreams come true, Paul!

May 2015 Astrology – A Re-Boot is a-comin’

Good news Folks – we’re finally entering a period of relative calm and less drama. Yes, milk will still stink up if you leave it out in the Sun for too long, that’s just chemistry, physics and common sense, but it looks like many of us are going to be blessed with less trying times, even if it is only for the spring and summer (or autumn and winter for my Southern Hemisphere readers).
Both Carl Boudreau and Steve Judd are being cautiously optimistic but I for one, can’t help but feel like the toxic, nauseous cloud many of us have been living under for the past few years has finally lifted. This is a golden window of opportunity – max it out for all you can. To paraphrase the author Salman Rushdie, when in doubt, go for broke. You’ve got nothing to lose and what’s the worst that can happen?
Carl wrote what I think is one of his most optimist postings yet. Below are some highlights worth keeping in mind.
Rethinking Almost Everything


Amid lingering inner and outer turbulence and fresh, new obstacles, a new space is opening for healing and progress. Despite confused thoughts and feelings, mixed signals and conflicting expectations, there will be moments of clarity, communication and cooperation. Things will be accomplished.We will be able to reconcile our rapidly evolving inner needs with the demands of our most important relationships. Supportive social networks will grow and strengthen. Current planetary alignments hold great promise. For all the turbulence and confusion, we are moving into promising new territory. Just maybe not as smoothly or as quickly as we expected based on memories of the good ol’ days. It’s time to stow your pessimism and expect better things.

The Upside

The Jupiter/Saturn/Uranus trine relationship in fire signs, in effect until August, is providing synchronicity and traction. But there’s another source of astrological support I have not yet mentioned….

More Upside

Saturn in Sagittarius, Pluto in Capricorn, Neptune in Pisces and Uranus in Aries are forming a series of sextiles, semi-sextiles and trine relationships. This sustained and sustaining bracelet of positive aspects will be in effect for years into the future….

These planets are capable of forming very difficult aspects, as we all know. For now, they are working together harmoniously. They are making new things possible, reducing friction, increasing momentum, and providing a broad, inclusive stream of positive synchronicity and constructive synergies. They will help us work around any difficult aspects that do come along….

Resistance to positive change will continue to weaken. Under this set of powerfully enabling and empowering aspects, the social, economic, legal and political backdrop of our lives will change for the better in innumerable ways. (Steve Judd in some of his other videos is predicting a marked shift to the left in global politics given that many countries are facing federal elections this year including the UK, Spain, Canada and of course the USA)The legal, economic, political and physical infrastructure for a new and very different world will come quietly into being.

A lot of it will happen while we aren’t paying attention, though. Regardless, our lives will steadily improve and spirits will lift…

When Lines get Crossed

“The colossal misunderstanding of our time is the assumption that insight will work with people who are unmotivated to change. Communication does not depend on syntax, or eloquence, or rhetoric, or articulation but on the emotional context in which the message is being heard.  People can only hear you when they are moving toward you, and they are not likely to when your words are pursuing them. Even the choicest words lose their power when they are used to overpower. Attitudes are the real figures of speech.”
― Edwin H. Friedman

This quote came from the opening of this week’s podcast from Maxwell Igan If there is one podcast I look forward to each week, it is Max’s. Max is probably the closest, most modern Western version we have these days of a real Elder or what people in India would call a “Baba” – a male Elder with quite a level of insight and wisdom which he expresses quite eloquently and also practices what he preaches. Not that he would want the distinction, he’s way too grounded and cool to ever let any of it go to his head. (If only he was a yoga teacher as well – I know that’s wishful thinking on my part but that would be the equivalent of Frank Zappa instructing yoga which would totally rock IMHO!)
Max Igan, Aussie Baba

Max Igan, Aussie Baba

It’s not just politics which Max covers in his weekly hour-long stream of consciousness podcasts – there’s genuine, insightful wisdom touching on topics as varied as how to be a better custodian of Mother Nature to how we can be better citizens to ourselves and each other. If you have an hour to spare at home while you’re fixing your car or watering your plants, it totally worth your while to have his podcasts playing in the background instead of the usual drivel you get on mainstream radio these days or listening to motivational tapes from the likes of Wayne Dyer or Tony Robbins – all nice and fluffy sounding but with very little substance or “meat”.
I bring Max up because his opening quote in his last podcast hit a bit close to home for me.  I’ve recently started a Meetup discussion group to bring many of this topics which I blog about into the real world and have moderated a few meetings already. By and large, the folks have been very nice, all different backgrounds but it has really brought it to the forefront the fact that there are many, many, many solo spiritual seekers and people whose eyes have been opened to what a scam the whole system has become, who have had genuine spiritual experiences, who are sick and tired of the New Age and/or organized religion bullshit, all operating and working alone in their own way, in their own time, without wanting to join any movement or follow one particular teacher but yet also want to discuss their experiences either to share or for personal verification with others who may have had similar experiences or insights. It’s always comforting to hear that you’re not alone.
Someone on their soapbox, pontificating to the world

Someone on their soapbox, pontificating to the world

One thing I have always noticed as I have written elsewhere, is that invariably there is always one person who shows up to monopolize the conversation because they like the sound of their own voice and try using the group as a platform for their own interests. This happened during the last meeting and I basically had to bite my tongue from pointing out what they were doing without being rude. But then I realized something – this person really didn’t “see” what they were doing and even if I did mention something, they still wouldn’t get it and would probably take it very personally.
Lines getting seriously crossed.

Lines getting seriously crossed.

Increasingly however, this sort of thing happens all the time. Lines getting crossed, people not listening properly, people not “hearing” each other properly, explaining something to someone who will never understand what you’re trying to say because they are not and never will be on the same frequency as you and also don’t want to hear what you might have to say, which then causes all sorts of problems further down the line.
Communication breakdown is not just a Led Zeppelin song.

Communication breakdown is not just a Led Zeppelin song.

How do explain what the ocean is to the snake that has always lived in a desert? How do you explain the color violet to a person who was born blind? How do you explain whatever sort of pain you may have experienced to someone who doesn’t have a clue to your own emotional landscape and experiences or the context of your life?
One of my buddies is a researcher and activist who focuses on human trafficking  in the sex industry. She pointed it out to me and until she said it, I never really “got it” that women primarily can feel close to a man via emotional bonding, while men primarily can feel close to a woman via sex…and the emotional bonding part may or may not come later. Not always of course, I’m seriously generalizing.   Don’t get me wrong – this is a bit more complicated than “Men are From Mars and Women are From Venus” – but it does go a long, long way in helping some men understand that unless a woman feels safe with him and trusts him to some degree first, he probably won’t get sex that easily despite what glamorous TV shows and porn would otherwise indicate. Likewise, a guy may not open up to a woman completely and let her understand him unless the relationship has become physical and pheromones have been shared. So in the case of emotionally and spiritually immature relationships, instead of explicitly telling each other what they really need and want, everyone just manipulates each other or plays mind/power games in the hopes of getting what they want. Fun, huh?
Part of this shift that’s happening is that people are waking up, people are looking for ways to share, people are all hoping for a better world, but before that happens at the global level, it has to be local first. Before it is local, it has to be personal. Fundamentally, we all have to start becoming better communicators and listeners with ourselves and with those around us. Not easy but it is a crucial step we all have to take.

The Devaluation of Truth

“Cosmic Intelligence has given us a will, so that we can make it the instrument of our higher nature by placing it at the service of a high ideal. The first step is to understand and apply some essential truths. Once you have understood an essential truth, use your will to put it into practice, in the knowledge that this is the only way to understand it fully. It is easy to state truths; anybody can go and find them in the works of a few sages and then repeat them parrot-fashion. By doing, so they may gain the respect of a few people blind enough not to see how ignorant and weak they really are. But deceiving the blind is not a very great achievement! In any case, there are others, who see things clearly and are not so easily fooled: the beings of light in the invisible world. In fact, it is these entities whose respect we must earn, and we will earn it by applying the truths the initiates and sages reveal to us. These truths are true weapons, and we will never find better ones for winning life’s battles. But we need an arm to be able to use them – that is, the will to put them into practice.”

Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov

Chomsky and David Barsamian

Years ago, I remember watching an interview with Professor Noam Chomsky with journalist David Barsamian. I can’t find the clip in question but the gist of it was that Chomsky was saying that most people in academia and research these days, professors, researchers, scientists, are in fact professional liars, they’re actually trained to be as such. At the time, I didn’t and couldn’t understand what he was saying given that the way academia works is that research papers are submitted for publication for respected journals and usually have to go through a rigorous process of peer-review and questioning, which is usually meant to flush out any inconsistencies prior to publication.

It is only recently I’ve come to understand  that truth has a relatively insignificant value in public intellectual life, in academic life, in literary life. Ideology matters much more. Personal comfort matters more. Careerism matters more.  As long as you can prove things in theory and on paper, you’re golden but never mind how those theories may play out in the real world or who it may hurt or what kind of havoc it can create it its wake once they are put into practice. Economists in particular  use a word, “externalities” in their models to account and justify some of these unforeseen damages but yet they do fuck-all about it just as long as they can get those additional letters behind their name, get a cushy job in academia or consulting and watch the numbers increase in their bank account and train other students to think and act like them, preferably using their own research and ideas to buffer up their own legacy.

This is really encapsulated in Julien Benda’s book, “The Treason of the Intellectuals”, which is based in this binary notion that there are two competing sets of values in the world: fame and fortune on the one side, truth and justice on the other side. The gist of Benda’s book is, the more committed you are to truth and justice, the less you’re going to see of fame and fortune and the more committed you are to fame and fortune, the less you will see of truth and justice.
Sometimes you will see those with fame and fortune try to pursue truth and justice to devastating effect and they end up being blacklisted like babe-alicious actor and activist Viggo Mortensen.
King Aragorn has become a silver fox. Mortensen went on the Charlie Rose Show once with a  T-shirt emblazoned with "No Blood for Oil" - afterwards, his Hollywood career stalled with the exception of working with visionary director David Cronenberg.

King Aragorn has become a silver fox. All this and a conscience too (Le sigh). Mortensen went on the Charlie Rose Show once with a T-shirt emblazoned with “No Blood for Oil” – afterwards, his mainstream Hollywood career stalled with the exception of working with visionary director David Cronenberg.

Other times, it just comes off as disingenuous, fake and trite like Princess Gwyneth Paltrow’s recent effort to feed her family on $29 a week on a food stamp challenge… and threw in the towel after 4 days. It would seem to me you’re better off pursuing truth and justice and in the course of doing so, you may end up with the fame and fortune later on…but there is no guarantee of that either.
Gwynnie-poo's $29 haul which was supposed to feed her family for a week.  Do you really need 7 limes?

I remember in the early 1990s, you could only get Chomsky books via special order from his publisher Black Rose Books at anarchist bookshops. Nowadays, there are whole shelves devoted to his titles in mainstream bookshops and people like Radiohead have his books on their tour buses. It’s been interesting to watch the pendulum shift.
Yeah, I get that "orange is the new black" but seriously, you should be wearing orange in a prison Hillary, not as a pantsuit.

Yeah, I get that “orange is the new black” but seriously, you should be wearing orange in a prison Hillary, not as a pantsuit.

I see this dichotomy now over, and over and over again in practically every sphere of modern-day life. Whether it is politicians with checkered pasts making bids for leadership like Hillary Clinton, shady but highly influential academics (and their lesser-known lackeys) with very specific agendas like White Anglo-Saxon financial and militaristic supremacy at all costs or yoga celebrities who are suddenly doing a 180 degree turn to be more “diversity-sensitive” when they themselves first perpetuated those very unattainable models of beauty and fitness and body image acceptance in the first place which now need to be dismantled completely in certain cases.
Not a lot of women will ever have a body and ability like this, with yoga or not.

Not a lot of women will ever have a body and ability like this, with yoga or not.

(I’m talking to you Kathryn Budig – you don’t go from modeling toeSox butt-naked as a white, thin, super-bendy blonde California woman to suddenly being the champion of  “loving your body” and “diversity” for people who are anything but white, thin, super-bendy blonde and from California. That’s almost as bad as when Christopher Hitchens went from Noam Chomsky to George W. Bush  in the course of one day during 9-11. You only jump ship like that if you’re already looking for an “out” or if you’re an ideological opportunist to begin with and wanting to join a certain bandwagon because it is popular or lucrative.)
The astrological climate suggests that this is going to be a relatively calm, drama-free spring and summer. Usually when things are calm and easy, people usually get a bit lax and put their guards down. With all these upcoming elections in the US, Canada and the UK, in fact I would argue it might even be advisable to strengthen them up a bit. I think most politicians are full of rot anyway but I can’t shake this feeling that many of us are going to be asked in one form or another, in our own lives, what we personally stand for and value. Is it truth and justice (which will be the hard road) or the easier route of fame and fortune?
Your call, folks.

The New Radicals?

(Note: This post touches on a sensitive and insanely personal topic and I won’t be surprised if I lose some readers. No direct offense is intended in any way, shape or form to any group and for anyone who takes any offense, it is completely unintended so apologies in advance.  This is just intended to be food for thought and discussion.)
This has sort of been buzzing on my mind in recent weeks. XOJane and Salon have recently been putting out articles around asexuals (or “Aces” as they are known as within their own community) and demi-sexuals. One read-through in the comments sections both at the original site and at Facebook and it’s enough to see how vitriolic the reactions have been to these “newly designated” sexual orientations and why it bothers so many people
I think many people often forget that sexuality, like a lot of other things in life,  runs along a spectrum of being and strength and somehow think because they have urges and needs which run, at say 100 degrees, that everyone else automatically has the same urges and needs which also run at 100 degrees when in fact some people run at 5 degrees (and that’s their normal, and would probably veer towards asexuality) while others run at 175 degrees (and that’s *their* normal, and would probably veer towards hyper-sexuality). This could be equally applicable to heterosexuals, homosexuals, bisexuals or transsexuals. Big deal, right?

All sorts of degrees in between.

Surprisingly, what it showed me more than anything else is that
1) There are way too many people in this world who automatically assume that everyone else on Earth want and need the exact same things and to the same degree as they do. Which just isn’t true.
2) For some reason, other people’s sexuality really seems to push people’s personal buttons. I’m talking serious projection of one’s own issues without even knowing anything about that other person.
Just going back to the topic of asexuals and demi-sexuals in general, I think on a spiritual level, there’s something very, very interesting going on here. Like I had written earlier, there’s a spectrum of being. Some Aces simply don’t feel ‘it”. I mean no urges to have sexual relations with anyone but they still want to feel loved by someone and prefer just cuddling , holding hands and talking and feel they can be close to someone by really understanding them on an emotional level. For them that’s true intimacy.
They aren’t traumatized or “damaged”, they don’t hate sex or people who want to have sex. They themselves just don’t feel the want or urge to be sexual.
Some Aces, who are demi-sexual on the other hand do have those urges to be sexual with someone but only under very strict and extremely particular conditions. You can place a picture of the most beautiful woman on Earth or the most handsome man in front of them and there is literally no reaction. Yet, they can only feel sexual if they have a deep emotional or spiritual bond with someone first and foremost. The culture of random sex, one-night stands and Tinder hook-ups just doesn’t work for them even if they tried and wanted to. The body just doesn’t respond to just anyone.
There’s some speculation that people with slight forms of autism and Asperger’s Syndrome seem to be more prone towards asexuality but that’s still on the speculative side of things for now. From a scientific point of view, we just don’t know and like Lady Gaga sings, maybe they’re just born that way and that’s that.
Spiritually, I think it’s a Uranian seed from tomorrow.
Child with progeria.

Child with progeria.

I remember reading Linda Goodman’s book “Star Signs” and in it she talked about the very rare, accelerated-aging disease, namely Progeria. Children who are literally born old and accelerate into old age as they grow up. They usually don’t live a very long time, and like senior citizens have a slew of similar health issues, like heart disease, cancer, liver spots etc.Yet despite their old appearance, they still act like children, full of smiles and innocence and they stay that way until the end of their short lives. In Goodman’s opinion, these are special souls who incarnated to symbolically show us that things like age and time are ultimately illusions, part of the greater illusion of Maya.
Likewise, I think what some asexuals (not all) are symbolically demonstrating is that there is a higher octave of love out there, one not based on physicality at all but rather on pure, true love, sympathy and understanding between connected souls, which in some ways can be deeper, more satisfying and more lasting than any earth-shattering, mind-numbing  orgasm can induce even under the best of conditions.  It’s an idea which can be hard to wrap your head around in a culture and world which is as soaked with instant gratification, random, unfeeling sex and internet pornography as ours is. But it’s still out there and it is possible.
On another note, I think religions and sects which enforce celibacy among their clergy, like the Catholic Church, lost the plot completely. I think in hindsight, had they understood different types of sexuality more, they should have only encouraged and accepted those persons who had very low to non-existent sex drives to begin with who had a true calling for a more contemplative and spiritual life to join their ranks. Instead they did it backwards and enforced something on persons who were incapable of deadening their own sex drives with truly horrific and disastrous results. The pedophile and sex scandals which have rocked various churches over the past 20 years only show that up more than anything else.
Rome made a huge, huge mistake with respect to understanding how the different types of human sexuality work and instead fell under dogma, never mid if it was unsuitable for some people, I think.

The Vatican made a huge, huge mistake with respect to understanding how the different types of human sexuality work and instead fell under dogma, never mid if it was unsuitable for some people.

Now before anyone decides to jump on me, I just want to say and make it very clear that I’m not saying that we all suddenly need to become asexual to understand love or that only Aces understand love and no one else does. All I’m saying is that there seems to be a different way of being which  is finally being explained properly and it might be worth looking at it to see what we can understand from it.
It’s just a thought.

April 2015 Astrology – The Final Cleanse (for now…)

I don’t know about many of you but that Solar Eclipse and the Spring Equinox hit me like a ton of bricks. Family emergencies coming out of nowhere which have since thankfully been resolved.

J.K Rowling

J.K Rowling

J.K Rowling, the billionaire writer of the Harry Potter books, was once a struggling welfare mom who wrote the first Harry Potter book which was rejected by who knows how many publishers before it was finally accepted and the rest, as they say, became history. She’s recently written a new book which is coming out on April 14th based on a Harvard commencement speech she gave, “Very Good Lives: The Fringe Benefits of Failure and the Importance of Imagination.” The gist of the book is really about how do we embrace failure and what can it teach us.
Quite often in our goal and success-driven society, we overlook what failure is trying to tell us. And it usually takes a few calamities, maybe some drama before we understand what these things are trying to tell us about ourselves. Instead we beat ourselves up and clutch to the raft for dear life until the next catastrophe happens.
Sometimes I wonder if people who are too honest lead more difficult lives. It would seem the ones who keep their blinders on, seem to coast by easily.  Life is much more simple when you’re naïve and don’t have the mental capacity to think things out but decide to live superficially.
Which leads me to think that  people who are “deep” are usually not able to connect  with those who are naïve and superficial.  My recent experience leads me to believe you can’t over the long haul. It’s very trying and difficult.  I’ve had a few friends who would fit more on the naïve side of things, but none that were ever very close.  It’s just very difficult to talk to them about anything.  You try to present new ideas or topics for discussion and they either have no input or their input is moronic.  After that happens a couple of times I just get frustrated and it doesn’t go much further.  I wouldn’t say it’s impossible, but it would take a lot of work and patience to have that kind of friendship.  That’s when I think a relationship and friendship cleanse is necessary
This upcoming lunar eclipse is looking like another opportunity for more drama and cleansing but I think it helps immensely if we adjusted our visions and instead of reacting, instead, decided to reinterpret what situations mean and what they are trying to tell us.

Major Gateway Ahead for Serious Lightworkers

Powerful solar eclipse happening March 20, 2015

Powerful solar eclipse happening March 20, 2015

For my astrology-oriented and Pagan/White magick-oriented readers,  this is just a quick head’s up about this Friday’s solar eclipse.

It is literally taking place with the Sun in the final degree of Pisces, before entering Aries, meaning, it is taking place at the very, very end of the Zodiac wheel before entering a completely new cycle. This is a serious gate-opening for those of you who pray, meditate or do ceremony and ritual which helps you get into that mystical zone within yourself.

Detail of Pisces and Aries from stained glass window in Chartres Cathedral, France, a big-time initiation center dating back to pre-Christianity and Druidic times. (And Christians aren't supposed to believe in astrology, ha ha)

Detail of Pisces and Aries from stained glass window apparently in Chartres Cathedral, France, a big-time initiation center dating back to pre-Christianity and Druidic times.

Meanings of eclipses from a spiritual point of view are wide, varied and can be confusing. Some tradition including the Hindu one look upon them as something negative as an opening and chance for ghosts and demons to enter Earth and wreak havoc by influencing people negatively by muddling their minds and hearts.  Native Americans, particularly the Navajo on the other hand see it as a time when the earth is repainted and renewed by the Sunpainters.

Old man Saturn and his Scythe, reaping away the old and unnecessary.


Because the astrological players include some heavyweights including Old Man Saturn, the planet of time and karma, Uranus, the rebel planet of unexpected change and Pluto, the planet of deep transformation, along with the solar eclipse, involving a dance between the Earth, Moon and Sun AND the Spring Equinox, stuff is gonna  go down. Australian Sabian Symbol astrologer, Lynda Hill has some very interesting things to say about this solar eclipse.

Giant Gate ahead.

Giant Gate ahead.

I’m deciding to look at it as a Gate. An old one is closing and another one is opening. Don’t sit still. Don’t think too much about things. Do. Put the past to rest. Forgive the douche bags in your life and realize they are only operating and acting out of a limited amount of knowledge and information. Put out feelers for your dreams and anchor them by offering some tobacco to the Earth. Do and apply yourself towards things you normally wouldn’t. There is a strange energy about all this which seems to be self-correcting, pulling people into situations they are meant to be in and yanking others out from situations they aren’t meant to be in.

Brian Hendricks is a man who has learned he has terminal cancer. All five parts are worth watching but I think Parts Three and Four are where you realize he really gets it. We should all be so lucky to come to the same realizations without having an illness.

Shakti is the Agent of All Change

Shakti Mother Goddess


Shakti , meaning “Power” or “empowerment,” is the primordial cosmic energy and represents the dynamic forces that are thought to move through the entire universe in Hinduism. Shakti is the concept, or personification, of divine feminine creative power, sometimes referred to as ‘The Great Divine Mother‘ in Hinduism. On the earthly plane, Shakti most actively manifests through female embodiment and creativity/fertility, though it is also present in males in its potential, unmanifest form.

Not only is Shakti responsible for creation, it is also the agent of all change. Shakti is cosmic existence as well as liberation, its most significant form being the Kundalini Shakti, a mysterious psycho-spiritual force.Shakti exists in a state of svātantrya, dependence on no one, being interdependent with the entire universe.

– Wikipedia
I really don’t like writing up these posts about violence against women, but this latest drama involving the airing of the documentary “India’s Daughter” on BBC and many other countries around the world this Sunday as a part of International Women’s Day and how this documentary has now been banned in India, I feel I have to write something.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few days, the documentary is a look at the circumstances and the characters involved in the brutal rape and disembowelment of 23 year old medical student Jyoti Singh on a Delhi bus by 6 men on December 16, 2012. The day after, women, men, students and all sorts of other Indian citizens hit the streets in the hundreds of thousands for weeks to protest against the violence towards women in Indian society, how the police are in on it, the judges, the lawyers, in fact the entire establishment.
I don’t want to outline the case too much since it’s been written to death in millions of articles right now along with the dumbfuck comments of one of the rapists, Mukesh Singh. The documentary keeps being uploaded and taken down off of Youtube constantly even after over 1 million views in a single day.
Typical Indian film posters - many of them are painted.

Typical Indian film posters – many of them are painted.

What I do want to discuss is the mentality behind why this violence occurs in Indian culture and society. For many outsiders, India is the ultimate paradox. A successful democracy, which is coming into its own in a global village and economy. High tech industry in Bangalore, booming tourism, yoga ashrams, a country which graduates more engineers per year than the entire population of the middle-class of France, a fast-growing middle class which now wants a piece of the good life, more often than not copying their counterparts in suburban America, malls, designer clothes, expensive vacations, high-tech gizmos and gated-communities.
A Typical gated community outside of Bangalore which looks a lot like San Jose, California. Check out the servants weeding the lawn.

A Typical gated community outside of Bangalore which looks a lot like San Jose, California. Check out the servants weeding the lawn.

What many people fail to see or really understand is the sheer size, diversity and complexity of this country of 1.2 BILLION persons. 50% of this 1.2 billion live in poverty, that comes out to about 600 million people living on less than $2 a day in a slum and doing whatever they can to make it through the day. I’ve had friends of mine who told me that visiting India for them was like visiting another planet completely. There were things about Europe, Japan and the Middle East they could relate to but once they got to India, it was like absolutely EVERYTHING was completely different, from the colors, to the traffic, to the Bollywood painted film posters. It was like an assault on all their senses all the time. Some of them loved it and some of them positively hated it and couldn’t wait to leave. 
Last night, the CBC radio ran an interview with lawyer and president of India’s Supreme Court Bar Association, Dushyant Dave  about why the film has been banned in India. Remember this dude is supposed to be educated, well-read and one would hope, open-minded to the status of women in India. I just kept shaking my head the whole time because every single one of his responses to the journalist’s intelligent questions, were so, SO typical of the old guard of Indian men, men who run the law, the police, business, and society that if the establishment thinks this way, it’s the thinking which has to be challenged radically and changed in time.
Oh, it goes something like this….
1. India has no problem at all. What problem?
2. If it has a problem . It is no body else’s business
3. Everybody else has this problem. Everybody else also has other problems. Why don’t you talk about talk about those instead?
4. Why are you saying this is a problem? This is part of our 5000 year old culture. Our culture is unique and we don’t share the same values and culture as you in the West.
5. We knew the answer to all our problems in the Vedic age.
6. Even if we have this problem , it is not our fault.
7. We cannot accept any of the solution that have been shown to work elsewhere in other parts of the world. India is a 5000 year old civilization. We know better than you.
8. Even if we have this problem it is much better than what it was before.
9. Perhaps we have this problem but it is none of your business.
10. It will affect our tourism, our reputation , don’t talk about this. We are now an “investment destination” for global interests. If people think India is unsafe, we will lose tourist dollars and investment dollars! So please shut up!
11. This is a conspiracy by the West to demean India , to target India.
12. Some men who are poor and uneducated in India are dumb they will consider the rapist as a hero so you must ban this documentary or else there will be many copycats.
13. People of India will be traumatized by the truth that is revealed. Better to keep their minds protected in their cocoons.
14. You are a racist!
15. You anti-national!
16. You are anti-Indian!
17. India hater!
18: Sex is taboo and a shameful topic. We never discuss these issues openly. Never.
I’ve always believed that the problem is that there are many, many men in India and in this world who don’t want to look at women as equally valuable members of the same human family. They just don’t and they will use whatever they can to justify keeping a woman in her place. It could be religion, “culture”, rape, physical violence, emotional, psychological or sexual abuse. Anything just to scare the girl, intimidate her and make sure she does what she is programmed to do.
People may say that this is just a problem in the developing world or among crazy Muslim jihadists. Bullshit. I remember watching the 1970s film “The Stepford Wives” and thinking to myself that really besides cosmetic and superficial differences, the same old story of a “woman’s place” seems to be the same the world over.
As for me, I too was expected to follow the same path of all dutiful Indian-Bengali daughters. Have an arranged marriage to a good Muslim boy from a good, educated family, ideally a doctor or an engineer while I became a chartered accountant. Go back to Bangladesh and India every year to see our families there. Maybe pop out 2 kids and take them to Disneyland and road trips to the Grand Canyon and weekend trips to the outlet centers. In fact all my female cousins who are older than I am, took that route. One of them lives very comfortably in a gated community in Florida with a traditional PhD biochemist husband who I can only say physically reminds me of Animal from The Muppet Show.


I was the first one to rebel and said “No” and boy did I ever get it. My dad was at a loss and had no idea what to do. My mother had passed on when I was 7 and any other female ally I could possibly have within the family were nonexistent because they took the route I didn’t want. I even heard one asshole uncle tell my dad “Why don’t you beat her?” which my dad then used as an opportunity to tell him to screw off. Dad finally let it go and now he’s sees and understands what a real bunch of cretins certain men in the world are and doesn’t blame me for resisting.
The Age of Aquarius is not going to happen fully unless one half of humanity looks upon the other half of humanity as an equal and valued partner.

The Age of Aquarius is not going to happen fully unless one half of humanity looks upon the other half of humanity as an equal and valued partner.

People go on about the oncoming Age of Aquarius and how the Golden Age is coming but what drives me nuts about many of the conspiracy theory sites, new age sites and so forth is how many of them don’t even see that jack-all is going to happen as long as women are  not valued as equal members of the same human family. Some of them, like Henry Makow even think that feminism and giving “women too many rights” is a conspiracy theory used to destabilize the family, for women to stop having babies and make sure that the New World Order has its way. Here, they lose me completely. That’s not the point either.
"Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.” ~ Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

“Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.” ~ Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

I don’t see anything conspiratorial about women being valued as an equal human being and being conferred the same rights, freedoms, privileges and same amount of respect. But I’m reminded of a line I once read, that women define and ultimately guide the society they live in, not men. The way women go will be the way that society will eventually go.
[Note: I initially had a quote here from Yogi Bhajan but given the allegations of rape and abuse now surrounding this “guru”, I have removed it.]

The Ides of March a-cometh (but you can hop over them as well!) – March 2015 Astrology

The Death of Caesar (1798) by Vincenzo Camuccini

The Death of Caesar (1798) by Vincenzo Camuccini

Carl Boudreau posted his thoughts on March 2015 yesterday over on FaceBook and it caused quite a tizzy among some readers who automatically jumped the gun and read it in the negative. But really, it’s not all bad. Read on.


Seeming Cause for Grave Concern

There is an exact Uranus/Pluto square on March 16th. Uranus and Pluto will both be direct during the exact square. This strengthens and sharpens its explosive, disruptive potential.
The negative potential of this square is further aggravated by the effects of Mars conjunct Uranus and square Pluto. Both will be exact on the 11th, a few days before the Uranus/Pluto square on the 16th (New York Time). This powerful and harsh set of aspects suggests a sharp peak in abrasive rhetoric, repressive politics, confrontation, and, brutal and violent aggression. Realistically, we do have to expect some disturbing events in March. Political and economic pressures will come to a head. On the individual level, health and employment issues, domestic and legal issues will come to a head.
It seems to get even worse. There is a total solar eclipse on March 20th, the Vernal Equinox, and a total lunar eclipse on April 4th.
These eclipses can trigger long-pending disasters or release destructive pressure that has been building unnoticed in the background of structural integrity has been compromised over a period of time. That is why, for example, bridges suddenly collapse or pipes rupture….On the individual level, employment, health or domestic issues can reach crisis levels.

Protective Coloration
The Mars/Uranus conjunction and the Mars/Pluto square on the 11th will, indeed, make the last Uranus/Pluto square on the 16th seem worse than it is. Don’t be fooled….In reality, all it will do is set up those still committed to a dark and negative outcome for a fall as we head toward two total eclipses in a row.

The eclipses are not the universally, uniformly dark omens some might think. Eclipses can bring important issues to a head, ending costly debate and controversy. They can bring answers to longstanding questions and do all of the above in our favor. Eclipses can also remove unrealistic possibilities from consideration, leaving us to devote our energies to more realistic options.

Eclipses might not always resolve issues to our complete satisfaction. But by closing out old business, eclipses create fresh starting points, allowing us to move forward less heavily encumbered by the past.

The upcoming eclipses deepen the sense of uncertainty and foreboding surrounding these outcomes…… Going into March, we could be looking at defeat. Going into April, we could be looking at victory, or at least an agreeable compromise.

We are now moving into an energetic set up that favors the kind of inner changes and soul searching that can fundamentally change the social, economic and political dynamic.

Do not allow a few admittedly hard and potentially destructive aspects convince you to abandon hope or to drop your plans for the future.

The Ides of March have historically been linked with the assassination of Julius Caesar which marked the end of the Roman Republic and the beginning of the Roman Empire. The former was participatory, elected and democratic (as much as it could be I guess, for the ancient world). The latter, fascistic, driven by ego and the cult of personality. In general, it heralded a time of uncertainty, change, confusion, unfettered expansionist imperialism and of course war. In many ways it does not sound all that different from the world we live in today.

I would also argue that there is absolutely nothing to say that there could be a “reverse” Ides of March, where the fascistic and unilateral can reverse itself to become pluralistic and participatory OR the seemingly fascistic and unilateral ends up benefitting us all.

Map of the proposed XL Key Pipeline.

A few examples automatically come to mind. President Obama recently vetoed the XL Keystone Pipeline project. Of course American Republicans and right-wing Albertans who are in Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s cabinet (Harper is a native Albertan and has rewarded his lackey friends in the tar sands and oil businesses handsomely) who were pushing the XL Pipeline project to Washington lobbyists have gone apeshit. Meanwhile First Nation’s groups and environmentalists are rejoicing. No one, besides those in the oil industry wanted the XL pipeline project to happen. The people have spoken.

You can put this pipe, you-know-where, Mr. Harper!

You can put this pipe, you-know-where, Mr. Harper!

Another thing, the FCC has deemed that the internet is staying free and open and that it is far too important for telecom companies (who are under the control of the NSA incidentally…) to privatize and look after it’s security. Net neutrality has won. Again the people have spoken.

Not gonna happen now, Baby!

Not gonna happen now, Baby!

What also needs to be pointed out is that these things also did not happen by themselves. Activists, bloggers, journalists, researchers, just basic concerned citizens have been working their asses off for years to make sure their concerns about these two topics have been heard. They didn’t stay at home or talk about it over dinner with a friend or two like some limousine liberals do. They did something, anything. Sometimes you can work yourself to your bone for years and have nothing to show for it and then one day, something shows up for all the effort you put in. The point being, the universe works as a pendulum and sometimes it works against you and at other times, in your favour. It’s up to you to read the ocean and decide which wave you’re going to surf.


The dark night of the soul which started for many, many people, myself included, back in 2008 due to a series of difficult astrological configurations which are setting off some very deep energies, far below the surface looks like it is coming to an end. All I can say is hang in there, keep holding on to the raft because the island is about to appear on the horizon. I’m personally in complete agreement with both Carl and Steve Judd (his global forecast is below) – this is a time to look after yourself.

Make sure everything is A-OK before the real change happens. Catch problems before they happen. Check the pipes and the plumbing in your home. Change the batteries in your home fire detector. Go for a lymphatic drainage massage. Get your annual medical check-up. Get your eyes checked. Book a few sessions of acupuncture. If you’re a lady, go for your annual gynecological exam. Get your teeth cleaned and checked up on. If there is a demonstration for an issue you are passionate about, just show up, sign a petition, whether it’s about stopping the installation of smart meters in your neighbourhood, stop the continued poaching of endangered rhinos for Vietnamese millionaires,  funding an animal shelter or rehabilitating stray dogs. Just pick something YOU care about.

Abby Martin of RT fame, has just ended her run at the wildly popular show she hosted “Breaking the Set”.  I suspect many guys liked watching her because let’s face it, she is pretty hot. I like her immensely because she is strong, smart, articulate and passionate and did a kick-ass job interviewing people and presenting her point of view on a host of “controversial” issues that the stupid mainstream media would never touch with a ten foot pole. If I were a journalist, she is exactly who I would like to be like.

Watch her closing video and pay close attention to her message.

It says it all.

What “Pleasure Principle”?


Another girl in this world was getting on a bus to go home got raped, burned and dumped in a roadside ditch.

Typical Turkish dolmus

Typical Turkish dolmus

Ozgecan Aslan, a Turkish psychology student got on a dolmus, a shared mini-bus, on her way home from her university in Adana to Mersin. After her friend got off the dolmus, she was left alone with the driver. When he stopped the dolmus to rape her, she fought back by pepper-spraying him. He then apparently stabbed her and hit on the head, knocking her out. His father and friend then helped him burn her body to get rid of the evidence and dumped her in a dried river bed in a forested area.

There have been the usual protest marches and arrests in the wake of this incident as women across Turkey have protested. Some people are pointing fingers at the political culture of Turkey these days. Erdogan despite making Turkey very wealthy this last decade, is also a sympathizer of very conservative strains of Islam, where women should wear head coverings, women should not have sex outside of marriage, and a woman’s sexuality and freedom are controlled and dictated by men, either her husband, her father or her brother.
Trent Mays and Ma'lik Richmond  both 16 at the time of the crime, were convicted in juvenile court for the rape of a minor in the Steubenville High School rape case.

Some people say the problem is Islam. I don’t think so because like the rapes in Hindu India the past two years have shown or the latest statistics of rape on American college campuses, it’s not religion which is the problem, it’s the culture and to get even more specific, it is the way women are viewed and perceived as, as agencies for male utility, I think.
There is an insidious campaign of violence taking place against women around the world. It’s not just the usual suspects of stupid trust fund frat boys, religious authorities and out-of-touch police officers but also includes famous celebrities, billionaires and even university philosophy professors.
In some ways, as much as I hate saying this, I’m not surprised why male violence against women has suddenly become more pronounced. It’s a backlash. Women now outnumber men on many college campuses. They are the ones getting advanced degrees, becoming professionals, making their own money and doing as they wish. That’s fantastic but for lack of a better word, I think it also makes many less-confident men feel “useless” and that’s where a lot of the rage is stemming from.

I think many of these types of men feel like they have lost control of the situation and don’t know how to deal with it. Just look at Henry Makow’s site and it’s enough to make you lose your lunch. If you are a man, and your whole life, and before that your father, grandfather, great-grandfather, your nation, your culture, your religion, your world told you, promised you that you are better, you are stronger, you can get anything you want, anytime you want, women are there to serve you, you start to internalize this message. Repetition is a powerful form of indoctrination.
Two Japanese women shopping together

Two Japanese women shopping together

This “problem” is so bad in traditional Japan that young Japanese female professionals are putting off marriage and children, continue to live at home with their parents and spend all their money on high-end clothes, purses and vacations instead of marrying some goon who they have to serve hand and foot on. The Japanese government went so far as to call these women “spoiled girls” and how this behavior is destabilizing Japanese society with their unusually low birth rate and the Japanese are now considering the unthinkable…allowing immigration just to keep their economy growing.
When outside reality doesn’t jive with your internalized reality or internal dialogue, it usually causes a very uncomfortable feeling called cognitive dissonance and that’s when usually something goes “Pop!”. For example, It’s when a sexually starved guy living in some one-donkey village his whole life who watches hard-core porn constantly, then assumes women really act like this all the time and can do all those things if you say the right words to her or corner her into that situation.
Women's number one killers are usually domestic partners.

Women’s number one killers are usually domestic partners.

I had mentioned male utility earlier on, that men can usually look on women as something of use to them, someone who performs a function for them (I am aware that women also unfortunately do the same thing to men as well).
I sometimes wonder if men AND women even know how to begin to perceive of themselves beyond those old “roles” or labels of mother, wife, husband, father, lover, fuck-buddy, cook, house-cleaner  or whatever and just learn to BE. I think part of the problem is language itself and how associated memes and images are attached to certain words play out in our mind.
Mom from the 1950s. This is not coming back, anytime soon and you'd better get used to it.

Mom from the 1950s. This is not coming back, anytime soon and you’d better get used to it.

When I read the word “mother” a certain imprinted image shows up in my mind along with associated behaviors of what’s “normal” and “not normal” for a “mother” and I might forget to look at the unique individual behind the word. A clichéd meme takes over the actual individual and it is because of this, I think, it is going to take an ungodly amount of work, brutal honesty, self-reflection and psychic energy for all of us, particularly men,  to willingly deprogram our baggage and expectations on each other and change those memes.
Meanwhile, while the women of Asia Minor are showing up strength, the women in the “West” are exposing their sexual and psychic vulnerabilities en mass it would seem. “Fifty Shades of Grey” (FSOG) made over $90 million dollars at the box office this past weekend even while the film itself is complete shite.
Scene from FSOG, from Youtube.

Scene from FSOG, from Youtube.

I have nothing against erotica or BDSM by itself, especially if it concerns consenting adults, then that’s their own business what they do in the privacy of their own lives. A key part of BDSM is the power play between partners, who is dominant, who is submissive and FSOG plays again on the cliché of a dominant, powerful male (Christian Grey is a billionaire industrialist) exerting control and power over a submissive female student, hapless to his whims and desires (and money). The fact that these books and film are so popular I think exposes the women who fall for this fantasy of something deeply troubling on a psychic level. It’s about giving your power and your control away to someone else to make you happy (or get you off), even if it is on a physical level. People in the BDSM community might then say that’s when the trust comes in. I don’t know.
A "sub" waiting for the "dom"

A “sub” waiting for the “dom”

Personally, I don’t get it. The best sex is usually when there is a strong presence of mutuality involved (which is why I think simultaneous, mutual orgasm is the Holy Grail of trashy romance novels). I don’t find anything remotely arousing about playing a limp, pleading rag doll to some He-Man sex machine or vice versa.
“There are few people on the left who grasp the immense danger of allowing pornography to replace intimacy, sex and love. Much of the left believes that pornography is about free speech, as if it is unacceptable to financially exploit and physically abuse a woman in a sweatshop in China but acceptable to do so on the set of a porn film, as if torture is wrong in Abu Ghraib, where prisoners were sexually humiliated and abused as if they were on a porn set, but permissible on commercial porn sites. A new wave of feminists, who have betrayed the iconic work of radicals such as Andrea Dworkin, defends porn as a form of sexual liberation and self-empowerment. These “feminists,”… are stunted products of neo-liberalism and postmodernism. Feminism, for them, is no longer about the liberation of women who are oppressed; it is defined by a handful of women who are successful, powerful and wealthy—or, as in the case of “Fifty Shades of Grey,” able to snag a rich and powerful man. A woman wrote the “Fifty Shades” book, as well as the screenplay. A woman directed the film. A woman studio head bought the movie. This collusion by women is part of the internalization of oppression and sexual violence that have their roots in porn. Dworkin understood. She wrote that “the new pornography is a vast graveyard where the Left has gone to die. The Left cannot have its whores and its politics too.”

Gail Dines, along with a handful of others including Jensen, fearlessly decry a culture that is as depraved as Caligula’s Rome.

“The porn industry has hijacked the sexuality of an entire culture and is laying waste to a whole generation of boys,” she warned. “And when you lay waste to a generation of boys, you lay waste to a generation of girls.”

“When you fight porn you fight global capitalism,” she said. “The venture capitalists, the banks, the credit card companies are all in this feeding chain. This is why you never see anti-porn stories. The media is implicated. It is financially in bed with these companies. Porn is part of this. Porn tells us we have nothing left as human beings—boundaries, integrity, desire, creativity and authenticity. Women are reduced to three orifices and two hands. Porn is woven into the corporate destruction of intimacy and connectedness, and this includes connectedness to the earth. If we were a society where we were whole, connected human beings in real communities, then we would not be able to look at porn. We would not be able to watch another human being tortured.””

One image I found rather galvanizing about Ozgecan’s funeral was when the Turkish women refused to back down from the threats from the imams and carried her coffin in a show of solidarity and sisterhood. Normally in a Muslim funeral, it is men who carry the coffin and go to the grave site for burial. These women refused to back down and took the role into their own hands. It might just be a small symbol but it’s usually symbols which back up ideas which go on to transform the world in good time.

Astrology for February 2015 – It’s all about Extraction, Healing and The Truth

My favorite wise astrologer Carl Boudreau posted his February 2015 astrological outlook yesterday. I’m not going to re-post in full what he wrote because I’d like to encourage people to visit his website but there are a few choice quotes which I can automatically see as relevant with respect to what’s happening in the world right now.

“Even so, I think in recent years and months, these influences have been foregrounded and kicked into high gear. And what we are seeing in the Saturn Sagittarius ingress chart is a further escalation. It could be rough until we’re all broken in on these new vibes at these new levels. We might be hearing things we never wanted to hear from people we never expected to hear them from…..In essence, the these influences will be triggering very deep and sometimes very painful mental and emotional releases. Aside from the inevitable psychological and spiritual challenges, these releases will be accompanied by conflicts in our personal and professional relationships. The energies at work in this chart will take us much closer to the root causes of the difficulties in our lives and in the world at large. We will no longer be willing to tolerate the injustice or conceal the discomfort it causes us. We will be compelled to speak or act, unable and unwilling to control our desire for change. We will all feel the need to renegotiate the terms of our relationships, person by person, situation by situation, relationship by relationship. In each case, imbalances large and small will be corrected. We will make literally trillions of large and small changes to our relationships and at a fairly profound psychological and spiritual level. These immense numbers of small changes will send seismic shocks through the world’s social, economic and political systems in the next couple of years. We speak of destructive and constructive aspects. These might best be thought of as re-shaping”

The pedophile sex scandal which continues to rock the British Establishment is something which just won’t go away. Everyone thought it was bad enough when all the dirt about Jimmy Saville came out but it looks like he was just the proverbial tip of the iceberg and the web that’s been woven is far, far bigger and more underground than anyone initially thought or guessed. It involves former Home Secretary Leon Brittan who “lost” the crucial dossier and file which named names who (conveniently) died two weeks ago from cancer (which no one heard he had until he died). It also involves convicted billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and through him, his various pals which include high-profile names like Prince Andrew of England, Bill Clinton and famed lawyer Alan Dershowitz.

I’m not going to write up too much about that since there are now literally thousands of articles about this story online. Go over to David Icke’s headlines page and there is something practically everyday which he posts from UK newspapers and such. However I would like to point out what these stories really show up about power structures which exist and what it means spiritually for all of us.

Whether you want to admit it or not, there is a ruling elite in this world. They don’t like people like me and you. They never have and they never will. We’re just workers, cogs in the greater wheel and equally disposable. They keep to themselves and protect each other’s interests if need be. It’s been like that since the time of the pharaohs, kings, and now with the kings of finance and business. These people also think that the earth can go to hell in a hell basket, with water shortages, food riots and even nuclear war and it’s all A-OK since they will manage to hide themselves away in underground bunkers and similar structures. Even then, I’m not convinced they are entirely safe.

Design of underground bunkers which are supposedly good enough to withstand the Apocalypse

Design of underground bunkers which are supposedly good enough to withstand the Apocalypse


Prophecy after prophecy, from widely divergent cultures and sources all basically say the same thing about the predicted earth changes and the changes to global society we are facing down: that even if the transition is tough, rough and ugly, not one hair will fall from those who are true, kind and compassionate and keep their faith alive.

These elites are anything but kind, compassionate or honest. Their behavior shows up as much especially when the secretive things they do come out to light as it always eventually does.  I liken them to infectious sores on society. But like an infectious sore, you have to allow the pus to form before you can drain the sore so that healing can take place properly. The poison has to be extracted first. Likewise, we also have our own vices and shortcomings, little poisons we also need to learn to extract from ourselves, our relationships, our world. It’s not easy and sometimes it’s painful, but it has to be done if we are to go forward.

The Diversity Card


As per my last post, I have been very busy with other projects which is why I have not been writing much at all. Even though I still watch what’s happening everywhere, even if the intent to write is there, the energy isn’t. The thing with starting your own business, you’re always told how much insane amounts of hard work is involved but until you actually start getting your hands dirty, you don’t realize how EXHAUSTING it really is. You’re constantly researching, networking, constantly meeting new contacts, following up and starting the process, over and over again. The thing with networking, it’s like anything else, the more you do it, the easier it gets but at times, some aspects of it can eerily parallel with what is happening in the larger world.

Case in point: The diversity issue (or lack thereof) which this year’s Oscar race has sparked (not helped of course by actor Benedict Cumberbatch’s ill-informed, unfortunate use of words which practically caused a media melt-down).
Ben, don't worry about it. It's all good.

Ben, don’t worry about it. It’s all good.

Now, the superficial, flighty side of me only pays attention to things like the Oscars as a fluffy distraction. They are just films after all, here today and forgotten about by next year. However the blatant lack of diversity and opportunities for persons of color or other minorities in the entertainment business and film-making industry as a whole has always rankled my nerves. Do any of you remember the show “Romper Room”? I used to watch it as a kid and I remember with sadness when the host would call out names of the kids she saw through the Magic Mirror at the end of the show. I knew I had one of those names which would never be called out.
I don’t understand why we’re living in a world which accepts a 5th re-boot of the Spiderman or Batman franchises in as many years but doesn’t see anything wrong in the lack of mainstream films, actors, narratives or stories focusing on, empowered and strong women,
persons from the LGBT community,
Australian Aborigines,

I think the last Muslim to ever be nominated in an acting category was Omar Sharif for “Dr. Zhivago”, where he played a Russian

Haign S. Ngor won an Oscar back in 1984 for "The Killing Fields"

Haign S. Ngor won an Oscar back in 1984 for “The Killing Fields”

or Native Americans
Personally, I’ll watch “Priscilla, Queen of the Desert” or “Thelma and Louise” any day over “Die Hard”.
If anything, whenever Hollywood  does cast someone “ethnic”, it’s usually a form of tokenism, at best, and always some kind of secondary or tertiary role, never a main one. At worst, it’s just plain ignorance and racism. Hollywood also has a long and ugly history of using “brown face” and similar devices in films.
The actress Merle Oberon was half-Indian but she was always depicted as “exotic”.
Jean Simmons donned brown face to play an Indian girl in “Black Narcissus”.
So did Hugh Griffith in “Ben Hur” to play an Arab sheikh.
Sir Alec Guinness donned brown face to play an Arab king in “Lawrence of Arabia” and a Hindu Brahmin priest in “A Passage to India”.
And who can ever forget the most embarrassing example of all, Mickey Rooney playing a Japanese man in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”?
The leaked Sony emails also showed up how truly bigoted and racist many Hollywood execs and studio heads are. So is anyone surprised that when persons of color are cast, they are usually portrayed according to negative stereotypes which reflect their worldview (evil, scummy Arab Muslims  in “American Sniper” or dysfunctional African-American families like in “Precious”) instead of being portrayed in a more positive, empowering or sympathetic light?
You can't pay me enough money to go see this movie voluntarily.

You can’t pay me enough money to go see this movie voluntarily.

Instead practically every year, there always some “coming of age” film about another white, quirky, awkward teenager from some affluent suburb with divorced parents or has issues around sex (“Juno”, “Thumbsucker”, “The Kings of Summer”, “Youth in Revolt“).
Michael Cera in "Youth in Revolt"

Michael Cera in “Youth in Revolt”

Every 10 years or so, there’s always a film which belongs to, what I call the “Idiot-Savant” genre. Again, usually white, male, misunderstood geniuses with challenging personalities or life circumstances due to their mental condition and/or intelligence (“Charly”in the 1960s, “Rain Man” in the 1980s, “Shine” in the 1990s, “A Beautiful Mind” in the 2000s, “The Theory of Everything”and “The Imitation Game” this year alone).
Not to minimize the Holocaust but there has been many Hollywood films on that atrocity or related to it over the years (“Schindler’s List”,“The Reader”, “Life is Beautiful”, “The Boy with the Striped Pyjamas” right off the top of my head) When it comes to other genocides I can only think of two, “Hotel Rwanda” about what happened in Rwanda and maybe “Ararat” about the Armenian genocide in 1915. I have yet to see something about what happened in East Pakistan in 1971, Cambodia in 1975, Algeria in 1954, Hispaniola in 1492 and many, many others.
I would love to see a Hollywood and a viewing public that sees and can accept a manly hunk like Idris Elba go toe-to-toe for leading-man roles with other equally manly hunks like Clive Owen or Mylène Jampanoï  becoming a Bond girl as easily as Denise Richards.
I think it should go to Idries.

I think it should go to Idris or Clive.

It’s not just film.  Activism around diversity, for the moment, is happening in the margins but it is inching closer and closer to the mainstream. I see this in the corporate world now and particularly in my networking discussions. Corporate culture has always been very strict, regimented, formal, conservative and about keeping the status quo. If you’re 1) male 2) white and 3) tall, you’ve basically got it made and you’ll more easily be considered for leadership and managerial positions. However, if you’re female, ethnic and petite (like me for instance) you have to work doubly hard to even get a chance to get your foot in the door, let alone an interview. Industrial psychologists call it the mirroring effect. The gist of it being that you will probably hire and consider people who are most like you first because that’s your comfort zone and it takes a huge amount of work to really see your own inherent racial biases clearly and work against them, which most managers either don’t have the time nor interest to do.
It’s a shame really that so many people don’t get it or don’t want to get it. I’ve already written why even in nature and in ecosystems, diversity is usually key to ensuring long-term survival of certain species and the ecosystem itself. Homogeneity is a dangerous place to be in for extended periods of time. I’m of the persuasion that the closer human systems come closer to mimicking natural ecosystems, the better off we’ll all be. That goes for the corporate world and the film industry as well.
Don’t believe me?
Watch this and really pay attention to what Ted Carns is saying in between his lines.
