My favourite book so far this year... and this from Liz' blog ..."Terribly sad news. My dear friend Richard from Texas has passed away. He had been a heart patient for years, and it finally caught up with him. He passed away quietly, at home, with a smile on his face. There was no sign of struggle or pain. (I can just hear him saying, "Don't make a big production out of it, Groceries.") As everyone who read 'Eat, Pray, Love' knew, Richard was one of a kind. He was a guardian to my life at a moment when I needed a great deal of care, and I know that his delightful and sometimes twisted words of wisdom have touched the lives of countless others, as well. One last teaching from the master: I once asked Richard if he was afraid of death. He said, "The only thing I know for sure about death is that it seems to take most people by surprise." But I don't think death took Richard by surprise, nor did he fear it. I think he saw death coming, walked right up to it and shook its hand. I think he made friends with it. That was his way. I hope I someday have the grace to do the same. I loved this man with all my heart, and I will never forget him."
Despacho describes the Andean practice of making offerings to the mountains (apus), Mother Earth (Pachamama), and other spirits of nature in reciprocity, reverence, and thanksgiving. A despacho is an act of love and a reminder of the connections we share with all beings, elements, spirits, and sacred places. At the deepest level, it is an opportunity to enter into the essential unity of all things, the living energy of the universe.
When I was a child and young woman my hero in the artworld was Van Gogh. He painted energy, emotions and social commentary. He still has a place in my heart, so imagine how delighted I was to find his 'blog' ... An excerpt: I don’t know if you’ll understand that one can speak poetry just by arranging colours well, just as one can say comforting things in music. In the same way the bizarre lines, sought out and multiplied, and snaking all over the painting, aren’t intended to render the garden in its vulgar resemblance but draw it for us as if seen in a dream, in character and yet at the same time stranger than the reality.
Transforming Pain into Beauty - DreamingBear Baraka Kanaan
Every now and then God drops a word into my lap - a single word - like a single drop of
a single word – plop - Melchizedek – plop – Abraham – plop – Magdalena
and I dine on that word for years… imbibing, savouring, discovering
then yesterday – plop – Peripatetic – which set me racing for wiki
The Peripatetics were members of a school of philosophy in ancient Greece. Their teachings derived from their founder, the Greek philosopher, Aristotle, and Peripatetic is a name given to his followers. The name refers to the act of walking, and as an adjective, "peripatetic" is often used to mean itinerant, wandering, meandering, or walking about. The school derives its name from the peripatoi (colonnades) of the Lyceum gymnasium in Athens where the members met, although a later legend claimed that the name came from Aristotle's alleged habit of walking while lecturing.

The Energetic Heart - James at Wingmakers
In this interview in Sedona in May of 2008, we talk with Drunvalo about what he sees is coming in the near future and how most of the Hopi and Mayan prophecies concerning 2012, have not come from the Hopis and Mayans themselves. The inspiring message is that if we knew what it was going to be like after this transition, we would be jumping up and down for joy - now that's a truly uplifting message from our future!
Drunvalo says we are in a place similar to the fall of atlantis when 13000 years ago humans dropped in consciousness
by moving from the heart to the head. He talks of a magnetic and physical pole shift where in this shilft we move back from our head to our heart.
Mother Earth knows the vibration of those in their heart. He also says that the Nephilim and Sirians are here and we will meet them again.
Next April there will be a ceremony called The Return of the Ancestors in Arizona of many tribes .... Drunvalo
Introduction To The Ashram Of Melchizedek Dr Joshua David Stone
Melchizedek is the name of our Universal Logos. This could be likened to the spiritual president of our local universe! In this sense all religions and spiritual teachings stem from this one source! Many take on his name, but there is only one true Melchizedek who is the Universal Logos. The theme for our universe is courage. There are of course infinite numbers of universes with different themes, just as we have an earthly government in different countries. There is an inner plane spiritual government and Melchizedek is one of the premiere leaders in this government since he is president of our universe!
The seven commandments set up by Melchizedek were:
1. You shall not serve any God but the Most High Creator of heaven and earth.

How to Think Like Leonardo da Vinci - Seven Steps to Genius Everyday by Michael Gelb
In your notebook make a list of one hundred questions that are important to you. Your list can include any kind of question as long as it's something you deem significant."
I've always been a great admirer of the Renaissance Men and Women and Leonardo is my favourite. I heard recently that da Vinci was a woman! Cause to ponder. Things are not always what they seem - search for hidden messages in the obvious.
Leonardo da Vinci and the hidden messages in the work.
It’s well known that Leonardo da Vinci protected his thoughts with a form of secret writing: a cursive script traced out from right to left, readable only by the use of a mirror. But if an Italian group calling itself the Mirror of the Sacred Scriptures and Paintings World Foundation is correct, da Vinci and his contemporaries may have been doing a lot more with mirrors than anyone has previously imagined.

Santa Ana, The Virgin and Child View the hidden image formed on Mary's shoulder. This invisible face, hidden to the naked eye within Da Vinci's famous painting of the 15th century, Saint Anne, the Virgin and child, exhibited in The National Gallery in London, displays as a banner the Vatican's crown. In the original painting John, the child, is the only one that can see the hidden face in the arm according to Mary's canticle(Lc1:48ss.). This and other invisible paintings hidden within the artwork of the Vatican and European museums question the historiography and the origin of humanity.
John the Baptist... View the hidden image of Adam and Eve sinning in the paradise of the mind. This image of a half woman and half man talks about the biblical genesis, in which Adam and Eve are not human beings, but the allegory with which the Bible narrates the birth and evolution of the human intelligence, and that jointly with the corporal sensibility form the soul inside the brain.

What an incredible time to be alive! The old reality is literally dissolving before our eyes and doors to the new are opening to us. Sometimes, it may feel as though there
is a veritable bevy of doors all inviting our attention.
Why wait until we die to do our Life Review?
I do believe that this is a lifetime of culminating multi-dimensional nexus points, and that we're at an unprecedented tipping point in our evolution that takes us beyond duality to enlightenment. These next four years are crucial in our person, earthly and cosmic evolution. It is essential to make wise use of every precious minute and you get to determine your own wisdom.
Be focussed in the style of the alchemist or magician and turn your life experiences, personal understandings and knowledge into wisdom.
I have great optimism for the future ~ as ordinary folk like you and I ~ have the opportunity to have mastery over the illusion just as superconscious women and men of the 'past' did.

Edgar Cayce has said in his teachings that Arcturus is one of the most advanced civilizations in this galaxy. It is the fifth-dimensional civilization that is a prototype of Earth's future. Its energy works as an emotional, mental, and spiritual healer for humanity. It is also an energy gateway through which humans pass during death and rebirth. It functions as a way station for nonphysical consciousness to become accustomed to physicality. The Book of Knowledge: The Keys of Enoch describes it as the mid-way programming center used by the physical brotherhoods in this universe to govern the many rounds of experiments with "physicals" at this end of the galaxy.
Arcturus itself is the brightest star in the Bootes constellation, which is approximately thirty-six light years from Earth.

Wingmakers - The 6 Heart Virtues
There are two very interesting interviews with James - the creator of the Wingmakers Material. Someone has very kindly transcribed the interviews and posted them on the forum. James says "I can tell you the core truth in as little as two sentences. Here it goes: Just as the Sun is the presence of God in our collective universe, you are the presence of God in your local universe. You are a light being in a universe of equal beings and each one is just as essential to the whole. So you see in these two sentences I’ve told you the seeds of truth from which all other wisdom arises.
...the deepest motives, even when they are forgotten or ignored, remain as a collective signature of humanity and these will be crystallized in our new institutions, our new technologies, our new leaders, and the new objectives of a united Earth. This is our destiny. It’s not a whim of a few teachers or even angelic hosts, it’s the innermost, pure, ancient voice of our hearts and minds and our inner chorus of love where your identity is a cell, an evolving ascending planetary organism. This organism lives and moves in the currents of love that fill the universe as light and sound frequencies from the highest to the lowest order. Interview 2 James Wingmakers
