Open door and the Peacock Angel

Religion is really nonlinear viewed in science. The rules in science do not apply!
It's sort of having a time machine you can go back forward, all around.
The all knowing, everywhere all the time. Like in form with quantum entanglement
in past and future events.

When you look at Religion there are many parts missing of the story.
Like where was Jesus growing up before he hit his 30's?
There are missing parts of the Gnostic also. Those known points to some
enlightening things.

(3) Jesus said, "If those who lead you say to you, 'See, the kingdom is in the sky,'
then the birds of the sky will precede you. If they say to you, 'It is in the sea,'
then the fish will precede you. Rather, the kingdom is inside of you,
and it is outside of you. When you come to know yourselves, then you will
become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons of the living father.
But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty
and it is you who are that poverty."

(18) The disciples said to Jesus, "Tell us how our end will be."
Jesus said, "Have you discovered, then, the beginning, that you look for the end?
For where the beginning is, there will the end be. Blessed is he who will take his
place in the beginning; he will know the end and will not experience death."

(1) And he said, "Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings will not
experience death."

In view nothing really dies anyway just changes form as in nature how energy
goes to one form to another. Burn wood  it goes into heat then carbon to other forms.

And I do see the Peacock Angel belief as a possibly the missing parts of the Gnostic.
It would be from the same time frame! It fits in the puzzle!

Now to the Peacock angel part of the story a light in the dark.
"In the Yazidi belief system, God created the world, and the world is now in the care of a
Heptad of seven Holy Beings, often known as Angels or heft sirr (the Seven Mysteries.)"

Note the part "is now in the care of  Heptad of seven Holy Beings."
That sort of point to the story about a doctors experience in the afterlife.
Talking to angels, seeing where god is. There, but not there, not being seen
and the Angels seem to be running things.

Also fits in the thinking of Theistic evolution.
"Theistic evolution or evolutionary creation is a concept that asserts that classical religious
teachings about God are compatible with the modern scientific understanding about 
biological evolution. In short, theistic evolutionists believe that there is a God, 
that God is the creator of the material universe and (by consequence) all life within, 
and that biological evolution is simply a natural process within that creation. 
Evolution, according to this view, is simply a tool that God employed to develop human life. 
According to the American Scientific Affiliation:"

Other than that is strange proof as I see it!

I need to note that on my birthday a rainy day I was talking to someone
about the Peacock Angel and as I was driving the car talking I seen a rainbow bright 
as anything. I really only see them like once every 10 years or so. Is it a sign?
A rainbow relates to the Peacock angel. I also seen a halo rainbow, well 95% there
when I was a kid. (That is like a Judgment day thing in the Peacock Angel belief!)
It is a rainbow at like 12 noon with the sun right over your head it makes a round rainbow!
It was not all the way there when I saw it.

When I was a kid I remember seeing a Peacock at a zoo or
petting zoo. I remember I could make it's tail spread out by
spreading my fingers apart. And I remember it got mad at me
and it started to talk to god about me being from dust and why
does it have to do this. Really I do remember this when I was a kid.
At the time I knew nothing about this stuff but that it happened.
Even if it was a dream it still had to do with the Peacock angel belief! 
Am I a reincarnated Adam? I had a past life memory from the
Cambrian Period. I was also a fish that came out of the water
and took a breath. So I don't know! To me it's one of those things in my life,
like how I meet people before I meet them or something of the sorts! Cool!

~~~~Melek Taus - The Peacock God of the Yazid
Melek Taus, the "Peacock Angel", is the god of the Yazidis.

The Yazidis consider Tawûsê Melek an emanation of God and a benevolent angel
who has redeemed himself from his fall and has become a demiurge who created
the cosmos frothe Cosmic Egg. After he repented, he wept for 7000 years,
his tears filling seven jars, which then quenched the fires of Hell.

Melek was borrowed from the Arabic term "king" or "angel". In Hebrew,
Melekh is King, and Malakh is Angel. Tawus is uncontroversially translated "peacock";
in art and sculpture, Melek Taus is depicted as peacock.
However, peacocks are not native to the lands where he is worshipped.

The Yazidi believe that the founder of their religion, Sheikh Adi Ibn Musafir, was
an avatar of Melek Taus.

Some people identify Melek Taus as Lucifer, or Satan. The Yazidis do not utter
such blasphemy, as it is quite offensive to them to equate Melek Taus with evil.
He is an Angel and this is how the Yazidis see him.

~~~~Melek Taus
Yazidi accounts of creation differ from that of Judaism, Christianity and Islam.
They believe that God first created Tawûsê Melek from his own illumination (Ronahî)
and the other six archangels were created later. God ordered Tawûsê Melek not to
bow to other beings. Then God created the other archangels and ordered them to bring
him dust (Ax) from the Earth (Erd) and build the body of Adam.
Then God gave life to Adam from his own breath and instructed all archangels to
bow to Adam. The archangels obeyed except for Tawûsê Melek.
In answer to God, Tawûsê Melek replied, "How can I submit to
another being! I am from your illumination while Adam is made of dust."
Then God praised him and made him the leader of all angels and his deputy on the Earth.
(This likely furthers what some see as a connection to the Islamic Shaytan, as
according to the Quran he too refused to bow to Adam at God's command,
though in this case it is seen as being a sign of Shaytan's sinful pride.)

Hence the Yazidis believe that Tawûsê Melek is the representative of God on the face
of the Earth, and comes down to the Earth on the first Wednesday of Nisan (April).
Yazidis hold that God created Tawûsê Melek on this day, and celebrate it as
New Year's Day. Yazidis argue that the order to bow to Adam was only a test
for Tawûsê Melek, since if God commands anything then it must happen. (Bibe, dibe).
In other words, God could have made him submit to Adam, but gave Tawûsê Melek the
choice as a test. They believe that their respect and praise for Tawûsê Melek is a
way to acknowledge his majestic and sublime nature.
This idea is called "Knowledge of the Sublime" (Zanista Ciwaniyê).
Sheikh Adî has observed the story of Tawûsê Melek and believed in him.

Yazidis believe that good and evil both exist in the mind and spirit of human beings.
It depends on the humans, themselves, as to which they choose. In this process,
their devotion to Tawûsê Melek is essential, since it was he who was given the
same choice between good and evil by God, and chose the good.

~~~~What is the Peacock Angel?
Tawsi Melek, the “Peacock Angel” and “Peacock King,” is the most import
deity of the Yezidis. But he is not just the possession of the Yezidis, he belongs
to the entire world. The Yezidis believe that they possess the oldest religion on Earth,
the primeval faith that features Tawsi Melek, and that all other traditions are related
to them through the Peacock Angel. They contend that Tawsi Melek is the true
creator and ruler of the universe, and therefore a part of all religious traditions.
He does not, however, always manifest within these diverse traditions as a peacock.
Tawsi Melek has taken on many other forms throughout time.

The Yezidis do not believe that the Peacock Angel is the Supreme God.
The Supreme God created him as an emanation at the beginning of time.
He was brought into manifestation in order to give the invisible, transcendental
Supreme God a vehicle with which to create and administer the universe.
Tawsi Melek is thus a tangible, denser form of the infinite Supreme God.
In order to assist Tawsi Melek in this important role, the Supreme Creator
also created six other Great Angels, who were, like the Peacock Angel,
emanations of the Supreme God and not separate from him.

When recounting the creation of all Seven Great Angels, the Yezidis often summarize
the emanation process as follows: Tawsi Melek was the first to emerge from the
Light of God in the form of a seven-rayed rainbow, which is a form he still today
continues to manifest within to them (usually as a rainbow around the Sun).
But the Yezidis also claim that Tawsi Melek and the six Great Angels are collectively
the seven colors of the rainbow. Therefore, the six Great Angels were originally part
of Tawsi Melek, the primal rainbow emanation, who bifurcated to become the rainbow’s
seven colors, which are collectively the Seven Great Angels.
Of the seven colors produced from the primal rainbow, Tawsi Melek became associated
with the color blue, because this is the color of the sky and the heavens, which is the
source of all colors.

Tawsi Melek was, therefore, both the first form of the Supreme God and one of the
Seven Great Angels, which is a cosmic heptad mentioned within many religious traditions.
The Jews, Christians, Persian, Egyptians all have their seven angels and creators.
In the Meshefê Re, the Yezidis “Black Book,” there is one passage that describes
the Seven Great Angels and associates their creation with the seven days of Creation.
The text first states that the Supreme God first created a pearl containing the substance or
substratum of the soon-to-be physical universe, ostensibly referring to the molten mass
preceding the “Big Bang” championed by modern physics.

The Yezidi text then maintains that for forty thousand years this pearl sat upon a
primal bird, which is quite possibly an incipient form of Tawsi Melek before he
divided into the Seven Great Angels. This pearl then exploded (or became dismantled)
to become the physical universe. Then, states the Meshefê Re, came the seven
days of creation:

“The first day which He (the Supreme God) created was Sunday.
On that day He created an angel whose name was 'Azra'il. This is Melekê Taus,
who is the greatest of all.
On Monday He created the Angel Darda'il, who is Shaikh Hasan.
On Tuesday He created the Angel Israfil, who is Shaikh Shams.
On Wednesday He created the Angel Mika'il, who is Shaikh Abu Bakr.
On Thursday He created the Angel Gibra'il, who is Sagad ad-Din.
On Friday He created the Angel Shimna'il, who is Nasir ad-Din.
On Saturday He created the Angel Nura'il, who is Yadin [Fakhr ad-Din].
And God made Melekê Taus the greatest of them.”

Ever since their primal creation the Seven Great Angels have been associated with
the day of the week they were created. Tawsi Melek’s day is Sunday, etc.
Once the Seven Great Angels were created the Earth was produced by them
out of the substratum of the original pearl. It remained barren and then suddenly
entered a phase of intense continual shaking, perhaps coinciding with the
violent earthquake and volcanic activity that was ubiquitous around the young Earth.
In order to calm the planetary quaking, the Supreme God sent the Peacock Angel to Earth
with orders to both sedate the Earth and endow it with multi-colored flora and fauna.

As Tawsi Melek descended into the physical dimension his seven-colored rainbow
self became manifest as a magnificent bird of seven colors, the peacock.
He then flew around the globe in order to bless every part of it, finally landing
in the area of what is now Lalish, the Yezidis most sacred part of Earth
located in northern Iraq. Here Tawsi Melek was able to calm the Earth while
simultaneously covering it with his peacock colors.

With the Earth in a more placid phase of its evolution the Great Angels
proceeded to their next creation, Adam. The first human was created by all the
Seven Great Angels, each of whom endowed him with a physical sense to experience life.
One gave him an ear, one a nose, one a mouth, etc. But the first human was a lifeless heap
without a soul, so Tawsi Melek transmitted the breath of life into him.

When Adam then rose to his feet, Tawsi Melek quickly swung him around so that he
was facing the Sun while informing him that there was something much greater than he
and that praying daily to the Sun as a form of the Supreme God would help him
to remember this truth. Tawsi Melek then verbalized the prayers that Adam
and his descendants around the globe were to repeat during their worship, and he
spoke them in 72 languages since Adam and Eve were destined to have 72 sons
and 72 daughters who would populate the 72 regions or countries of the Earth.

The Peacock Angel then informed Adam that if he and his descendants remained
steadfast in righteousness they would eventually see and know the
Supreme God personally. In the meantime, Tawsi Melek would be their
protector and teacher even while residing in another dimension.

Perpetual Motion

With the light of the belief of the Peacock Angel and the view of
Theistic evolution and the Doctors experience of the afterlife fits
the view that it's all perpetual motion and that is not bad!

Now to the Peacock angel part of the story a light in the dark.
"In the Yazidi belief system, God created the world, and the world is now in the care of a
Heptad of seven Holy Beings, often known as Angels or heft sirr (the Seven Mysteries.)"
"Theistic evolution or evolutionary creation is a concept that asserts that classical religious
teachings about God are compatible with the modern scientific understanding about 
biological evolution. In short, theistic evolutionists believe that there is a God, 
that God is the creator of the material universe and (by consequence) all life within, 
and that biological evolution is simply a natural process within that creation. 
Evolution, according to this view, is simply a tool that God employed to develop human life. 
According to the American Scientific Affiliation:"

Oahspe emphasized service to others; each person is graded according to service
to others. Each individual, group and nation is either in ascension or descension; sooner
or later, all ascend, rising in grade. The higher one's grade, the better are the conditions
within one's own soul, and the better the place awaiting one in heaven.

According to Oahspe, when mortals die their spirits continue to live, regardless of who
they worshiped, or even whether they disbelieved in an afterlife. The spirit realm becomes
their new home, which is called heaven, and the individual spirit is called an angel.
There are unorganized heavens close to or on the earth. Also starting there and
linking to the highest heavens are the organized heavens. Both types of heavens are
accessible to mortals. If a portion of heaven lives in a state of chaos and delights in evil,
that portion is called hell.

An angel must subsist for a season after death somewhere along a continuum of
delightful to abysmally wretched conditions. The heavenly place where
angels initially live is determined by what their habits were as mortals; as well as by their
aspirations and diet. Selfish behavior, low thoughts, or eating animal derived food will
place a newborn angel in the lowest level, being on the earth. Evil oriented persons enter
heaven into hellish conditions. Nevertheless, all in descension eventually turn around and
ascend upward to more delightful places within an organized heaven, whose chief is
called God. God is an advanced angel ordained into office for a season.

Universalism is a religious, theological, and philosophical concept with universal
application or applicability. Universalist doctrines consider all people in their formation.
In terms of religion, in a broad sense, universalism claims that religion is a universal
human quality. This can be contrasted with non-universalist religions.
Religion in this context is defined as "a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature,
and purpose of the universe, especially when considered as the creation of a superhuman
agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often
containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs."

Note "moral code." Relating: "Three-fold Law or Law of Return) is a religious
tenet held by some Wiccans/Pagans. It states that whatever energy a person puts out
into the world, be it positive or negative, will be returned to that person three times.

A law of cause ruled by effect? Rules or making a agreement for rules is rules.
No rules puts you inline with natural selection as most rules are to keep you
out of harms way but also to free as a whole as the rules are to help the whole!
Like, own effort = own result, also as a group!

The Doctors experience of the afterlife. Seeing Angels and where god is
there but not there. The Angels are in charge?!
This is my belief! He set the wheels in motion!
Far out there as in making all life like he made Angels.
It makes me wonder about the strange out there!

When I was a kid I remember seeing a Peacock at a zoo or
petting zoo. I remember I could make it's tail spread out by
spreading my fingers apart. And I remember it got mad at me
and it started to talk to god about me being from dust and why
does it have to do this. Really I do remember this when I was a kid.
At the time I knew nothing about this stuff but that it happened.
Even if it was a dream it still had to do with the Peacock angel belief! 

Am I a reincarnated Adam? I had a past life memory from the
Cambrian Period. I was also a fish that came out of the water
and took a breath. So I don't know! To me it's one of those things in my life,
like how I meet people before I meet them or something of the sorts! Cool!

That does not ruin religion it just makes it cooler!
I still find my life cool being the strange and being a reincarnated 
Cambrian Period fish!

*I hope I changed your life for the better, because it will make other
lives better!

Joseph Caiaphas and the two-state solution

Israel has always earned it's way in history and would you expect it any other way!
A two state solution would be good for the whole being Israel is holding much
growth back. No one wants to work with Israel with the issues still going.
They don't know what path they are on so what road to take is not known!
The better road is the two state but if the other is chosen then you would need to
know to defend your likelihood from Israel. As being one state would make
more unknowns.

Israel does need to grow up Benjamin Netanyahu as seen by many is just a cry baby.
As in saying how it is war crimes for the Palestinians to keep weapons in the schools.
So Israel had to blow them up with kids in there. The better option would be to have a
talk about things not to blow up the kids in the schools.
Is it not war crimes to blow up kids?
Well can you see Jesus blowing up the schools knowing there might be many kids in there?

Al-Fakhura school incident. " Israel stated it fired on the school in response to militant gunfire believed to be coming from al-Fakhura. A UN inquiry said that there was no firing from within the school and there were no explosives within the school."

But it's just more of the road Israel is on. It needs to change! Well they did kill Jesus!
Joseph Caiaphas was the one that turned in Jesus. If he wouldn't of... It's Israel for you same as the same needing
a change! Israel does not need another Joseph Caiaphas type in office with not wanting
a two state!

If they Killed Jesus back then and kids in schools now what else will happen?
How do you trust Israel? Good questions that shows a need for a change there!

We don't live in the bible days so now is now, Israel attacked schools!

Path in the Road and Hot Mess of Green Acres

There is much to life past to present... It's all connected and the same!
There are strange things in life that put you in places for a reason.
I see this in my life. So from that it is clear to me I know, but about others seeing?
It's like they are off their cliff of insanity and are too stupid to grab the rope!

Well if it's something of a big bright light that shines like crossing paths over and over
marked with a screw embedded in the floor, saying here we all are, why not accept it?
You know I tend to listen to things like that. Destiny puts you in strange places
and has strange connections to follow.

So this story is about listening to what is guiding you. And accepting the good things
in your life. They might look bad from where you are looking at the cliff of insanity
but you really just need to grab that rope... Not so bad now is it as you now have a
rope to keep around you when you need it!

~~~~~The Hot Mess of Beautiful Green Acres. By: Colette

Dearest you,

I’m writing this in my pajamas sitting in the only room in my new house in the country that is almost unpacked, with both doggies lying beside me exhausted from the past two days of moving and construction shock (that will apparently continue for the next couple weeks).

Then there are the flies. There are definitely those irritating tiny terrorists in the house and quelle surprise (that’s French) they’re everywhere in the countryside. Did you know that farms have a lot of insects? Hmm, somehow in all the art and photography and wonderful romantic movies I’ve seen over the years that influenced my decision to go live out the rest of my days on a farm, those critters were noticeably absent.

Sebastian, our little deaf and going blind 13-year-old pom is terrified of flies. Living in the country is decidedly a buggy kind of experience and the poor little guy is not enjoying it one iota. Coco Doozy, the baby of the house- a wise and happy one year old on the other hand thinks they are fabulous and fun and chases them around. I’m really hoping he will follow her lead at some point although I doubt that will happen.

So I am praying to the oversoul of the flies (since it worked once with cockroaches- I wrote about that story in my book Messages from Spirit) to vacate my house and remain outdoors where they really belong.

I abhor hurting anything alive. I believe all of us have a right to exist. We took scorpions outdoors when they ventured in to our Sedona home, (albeit with me shrieking my head off at Marc who did the actual relocating) I named all my stinkbugs in Connecticut Freddy, and spiders go in glass and out the door.

Flies, well, I’m sorry but should they refuse to listen to our prayers we’ve purchased an electric bug zapper tennis racket as well as a couple golden fly tubes to send them to the other side.

As a medium I know we don’t die, and as even flies are sentient beings so they will go to their next incarnation either in a glorious spark of fire or a sticky last supper of honey and squished blueberries.

Maybe I will be swarmed with fly goo when its my turn to head on over to another dimension or maybe not but I will take my chances.

This morning we noticed we went from about 40 flies down to about 10 and this was decidedly thrilling and cause for celebration. (Life does get simpler in the country)
I’m hopeful that now that Marc has gone kamikaze on a couple of them with the zapper that they will tell their friends to stay away.

I’ve been contemplating the choice we made to come here this morning. I joke about being like the old TV show I used to watch with my mom called Green Acres. Totally freaked out by farm life like Eva Gabor, but in truth I wanted to be here. I like the city but only to visit. I am happiest in remote places with few people surrounded by nature.

The other truth is that I can’t control what kind of nature I’m surrounded with. I can’t say I’ll take some of it but not others. It’s all or nothing out here in the middle of nowhere surrounded by stunning rolling hills that resemble my favorite parts of Scotland, and northern England.

This place called us here to love it and care for it and be present for it.
It needed a lot of help, hence the construction, which led us to discover how much more help it actually needed that went unnoticed by the inspector and us when we bought it.

I wonder if I’m like this house too. I’ve been under construction for a while now. A lot of my life was so stressful, all caused by me, by the schedules I chose, the goals I chased, all the moving around from place to place. Bit by bit I have chipped away at what wasn’t authentic to find the real me, the honest me, to recognize it was time to lay a new foundation to serve my highest good so I could serve that to others.

My generous friend soul contract astrologer Robert Ohotto (he’s on my radio show this week so tune in it’s an important show! Thursday noon EST) gave me a reading for my birthday and said the gypsy archetype running much of my life had come to its conclusion finally.
It’s time to put down roots.

Green Acres it is.

So my question to you is, this. When you feel like you’re in a period of growth and change, whether it be moving physically or internally what was / is your experience? What keeps you rooted? Did you find yourself thrown for a loop or two? Then there is the shock of the change when you think you belonged in one place and find you might want to explore another. Has that happened to you?

One thing I know – miracles happen with radical acceptance and surrendering to a Higher Power’s plan.

Right now I’m writing this with a fly, and now his smaller fly friend that have decided to accompany me perched on my computer.

I think I’ll leave them alone, pretend they’re Minions and send them love and acceptance and ask them to stay away from Sebastian who is hiding in a closet poor little guy.

Truth is, like mindfulness meditation teacher Jon Kabat- Zinn says; this is what I signed up for – full catastrophe living. I have to live the whole enchilada. There are flies, and glorious green hills, velvety statuesque horses and cows with huge liquid eyes, and then there’s all that poop that come with more flies.

So, All is well in Green Acres, even though the change is really uncomfortable, accompanied by an upheaval and detour in plans, a pesky knee injury, financial challenges, emotional ones, returning to crappy eating (temporarily) and everything in between.

I know I’m just exhausted and haven’t “landed” yet but I will.

In one week. I’ve already learned so much about life, about how everybody gets a pass in “construction mode”, about partnership, about Spirit’s mysterious plans, about the incredible magic of an excellent Dyson vacuum cleaner, about the shock and awe of ageing skin, about fans when there is no air conditioning, about conserving energy, about humility, about the joy of being in the thick of it all and still managing to find moments of sheer peace, reverence and joy.

Green Acres is still the place to be.
O and one more thing.
A good cry has no calories.
Lots of love from me! Tag you’re it!

Low taxes at work be aware

If you make nothing then you have nothing and nothing to be taxed
as you also can't afford it anyway letting it go to match your income.

Oklahoma is looking bad with a budget hole getting to $900 million.
It's Oklahoma having the tax cuts making cuts to the poor that takes
in more tax help than they pay out in taxes, so less help and more
doing without. "If they wanted me to buy that they would of paid me better!"
Also noted as a "Sorry your income is too low! , I don't need it anyway!"
And boom the $900 million loss!

Many out there look at the gas prices making big oil loose money, when
most consumers spend more on food etc than they pay for fuel for the car.
It's a sales tax issue, noted by the people walking with no cars as people
that walk are not good consumers DUR! Low income = Low sales!

Yes they will raise taxes... on the poor! But the poor will just cut back to
compensate or just do without it! As the poor just can't make more money.
Like a tobacco tax being they would just use the food money to pay for it
making less sales in the other places!

The rich would be a better source of taxable income. Taxing the poor brings
down the labor force.

Next year is looking bad! There looks to be too many people in office
that are in the now! They don't seem to know what is connected.
Low taxes is low pay for the government so low pay is nothing.
Expect less, food stamps, college help, help with rent, help with your bills etc.
It's more of a reason to cut back your spending to make it!
Inequality is looking to grow fast with Trump wanting more tax cuts!

This is bad being the masses that will be effected. In my town I see many people
walking without cars. This will grow more next year or not, but the point is
a massive decline. Getting rid of the mandate of Obama Care will make most
of the poor able to drop their insurance for a bigger paycheck.
At least 60+ million and that is enough to kill insurance places and healthcare!
They can't afford to use it anyway why have it?
That would help in more sales but the loss of healthcare effects a lot!
In the workplace all workers will have no insurance so workers comp is a
big issue. Also to say all of the workers moving on to safer jobs to lower risks
being no more healthcare! So it's not about being in the now as it all relates!

And going to college could be bad for Oklahoma also with the $900 budget fail
like it is in Louisiana with the lack of funding.

"The Taylor Opportunity Program for Students, known as TOPS, is one of the most
generous, merit-based state scholarships in the nation. Until now, it covered the entire
cost of tuition for Louisiana students as long as they graduated from high school in-state
and met two academic requirements: a 2.5 high school GPA in core classes and at least
an average standardized test score."

So really all of this needs to be in your mind. As we are heading it's best to
lower your cost in your own house. It's your life so cut your spending!
Keep in mind other college type options. Look ahead! Fuck the "Be in the now!"

Be in the now? Can't make it tomorrow!

Balls to the Wall

As things are looking to be going with Trump I need to give a warning
to the workers things are looking bad. Trump is really stupid but the point
is all the high up bosses that he is putting in office. It's like having that boss
out in a small town Walmart that doesn't give raises in power.
America is looking like it will be ran like a small town!
Small town is no unions to bring up your pay so low pay is make nothing
have nothing. So the bigger cities will shrink in pay killing who knows
how many stores, less pay is less sales!

So for rights you have now at work will be looking like it will go away!
Please be aware of this, keep an eye on what is going on!

~~~~~Donald Trump Is the Anti–Labor Day Candidate: Running Against Fair Wages, 
Worker Rights, and Unions
Donald Trump, the billionaire candidate who has argued that “having a low minimum wage is not a bad thing for this country” and complained in a 2015 GOP debate that wages are “too high,” is running for president this fall on the most virulently anti-worker and anti-union platform in the history of his Republican Party.

Trump and the anti-labor partisans who nominated him for the presidency have rejected the legacy of a Grand Old Party that once cheered when Abraham Lincoln declared: “Labor is prior to and independent of capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration.”

For more than a century, Republicans made a serious effort to compete with Democrats for the votes of workers. And they did so not just by uttering a few kind words on Labor Day but by supporting and embracing pro-worker and pro-labor policies.

Back in the 1950s, when Republicans such as Dwight Eisenhower actually fought for a robust and fair economy, the party promised to “clarify and strengthen the eight-hour laws for the benefit of workers who are subject to federal wage standards on Federal and Federally-assisted construction, and maintain and continue the vigorous administration of the Federal prevailing minimum wage law for public supply contracts” and to “extend the protection of the Federal minimum wage laws to as many more workers as is possible and practicable.” The 1956 Republican platform pledged “to protect more effectively the rights of labor unions” and announced that “The protection of the right of workers to organize into unions and to bargain collectively is the firm and permanent policy of the Eisenhower Administration.”

This year’s Republican platform is dismissive of the federal minimum wage, declaring (in a stance similar to the one Trump appears to have evolved toward) that decisions about base hourly wages “should be handled at the state and local level.” It endorses the anti-union “right-to-work” laws enacted by Republican governors such as Wisconsin’s Scott Walker, and calls for taking the anti-union crusade national with a proposal “for a national law” along “right-to-work” lines. The 2016 GOP platform also attacks the use of the Fair Labor Standard Act to protect workers; rips the use of Project Labor Agreements to raise wages and improve working conditions; and proposes to gut the 85-year-old Davis-Bacon Act, which guarantees “prevailing wage” pay for workers on federal projects.

At campaign stops in swing states such as Ohio, Trump tries to portray himself as a champion of workers. Yet he sends conflicting and frequently wrongheaded signals on issues ranging from wages (going so far as to claim that he didn’t say wages are “too high”—despite the videos of him griping to a GOP debate audience, “Taxes too high, wages too high, we’re not going to be able to compete against the world”) to trade policy (while the Republican nominee says he would negotiate better deals, he still does not seem to recognize that it is the “race-to-the-bottom” mentality of free-trade advocates that harms workers and communities). Trump’s decision to make fiercely anti-union Indiana Governor Mike Pence his running mate should be read as another signal that the Republican presidential nominee is prepared to steer federal policy making toward the disastrous approaches of dogmatic governors such as Pence and Wisconsin’s Walker.

Dwight Eisenhower warned, as a Republican president, about politicians “who hold some foolish dream of spinning the clock back to days when unorganized labor was a huddled, almost helpless mass.”

“Only a handful of unreconstructed reactionaries harbor the ugly thought of breaking unions,” Eisenhower argued in the prosperous 1950s. “Only a fool would try to deprive working men and women of the right to join the union of their choice.”

Unfortunately, this year’s Republican Party ticket is composed of a pair of unreconstructed reactionaries—and the Republican Party’s platform is a litany of foolish dreams and ugly thoughts regarding the rights or workers and the trade union movement that defend those rights.

~~~~~Song meaning
Asked about the meaning of the song, guitarist Wolf Hoffmann replied:
"We've always been interested in politics and in human rights and things like that, so a lot of the lyrics that we had in those days, and to the end actually, were dealing with human rights, for instance, and that's really what 'Balls To The Wall' is all about. 'One day the tortured will stand up and kick some ass!'"

Group Therapy, a lover makes a better wife

As I say a lot if your wife is not normal the issue needs to be resolved.
Funny but true getting more support is needed these days and it's ok!
Behind a great woman are lovers supporting her...
Well Catherine the great is great otherwise she is Catherine the mediocre,
and she was not! She had a happy life and should be noted it's better than not!

There is nothing wrong with a wife having lovers... Well I would really just call it
"Group Therapy" being that is really what it is like. Therapy because there is a meaning
for all such actions for the best interest of the wife as all would be for her best interest!
Also Therapy being the openness that would be involved also releases the stress more
than not! And also I would advise the relationship needs to be aimed for long term being
the work and effort for trust in the relationship. It's a statement by itself!
You need to be real about what you feel because not doing so does fill you full
of regret. Happiness is worth effort. Having that talk is a life changing event as
the point is Therapy to heal! Love will find a way!

So there is more to the wife having lovers than some perverted point. There is meaning
behind it with openness aka Group Therapy!

~~~~~I have a lover. And it makes me a better wife
I’ve been with my husband Austin for almost four years. For two of those years I’ve also had an ongoing occasional relationship with my lover Jay, with my husband’s full knowledge and consent.

There’s no sneaking, no cheating, and no funny business here. Just good old-fashioned dates, conversations, and sheet-tangling sex. I see my lover as often as a few times a month or as rarely as every six months, depending on our schedules and desires. I do my best to balance my marriage to Austin, my relationship with Jay, graduate school, a job, and parenting or step-parenting three teenagers, so sometimes I don’t get to spend as much time with Jay as I’d like.

So why do I gleefully indulge in these occasional overnight romps with Jay instead of sticking to the model of monogamy most of my 40-something friends desperately embrace while quietly withering inside?

Well, that last sentence should be something of a clue. Having a lover makes me a better wife because it makes me feel good and that’s good for my marriage. I break the benefits down into three separate but related categories, each of which positively contributes to my life as a wife, parent, student, and employee: communication, passion, and rejuvenation.

A serious relationship takes a lot of work, as anyone who has ever been in one knows. A great deal of that work is simply communicating in ways that make sure both parties get heard, acknowledged, and respected. When Austin and I first started exploring the idea of opening up our relationship to include additional lovers, we had to do an extraordinary amount of additional communicating. We had to try extra hard to make sure we were actively listening, holding each other in compassion, and seeking what was best for our relationship.

Don’t get me wrong, there were plenty of arguments, hurt feelings, and serious missteps along the way. We had to fight our way through a lot of crappy conversations to get to the point where now we feel at least slightly more confident in our ability to share our wants, needs, and desires without fear of getting automatically shut down based on jealousy or insecurity. Like so many things, it was worth the effort and has taught us that there isn’t much we can’t work through. I feel more confident in my ability to communicate with Austin as well as everyone else in my life, something that only serves to enhance my skills as a parent and contributes positively to my career.

At this point you may be asking yourself, “But doesn’t the extra work of communicating just add more stress to your life and marriage? Wouldn’t it be easier to keep things simple and avoid the risk of jealousy/anger/drama?”

Of course it would be. But it would also mean that I wouldn’t get to spend quality time with a dear friend who partakes in deliciously fun sexual escapades with me and reminds me that I am an innately sexual being. Jay and I haven’t yet fallen into a sexual rut and hopefully we never will. We haven’t become annoyed with each other’s bad habits. We don’t have to deal with each other’s dirty laundry or decide who is going to stop on the way home to pick up the tomatoes for tonight’s salad. We get to focus on making each other feel good in as many ways as possible, something that is made infinitely easier precisely because that is all we have to do. Jay is a passionate and skilled lover who enjoys the sexual opportunities I offer without expecting any kind of serious commitment. He brings toe-curling excitement to my life and I get to turn around and bring that high-octane sexual energy back home to Austin. Everyone wins.

And by everyone, I mean everyone. For years, my therapist has urged me to take mini-vacations to get away from the stress of trying to keep up with managing a household, getting a PhD, and working. Unfortunately, I always felt obligated to take care of my husband, our kids, our dogs, our house, my classes, and projects…the list could go on and on. It was impossible for me to let go, almost entirely because I felt like I didn’t have a real reason to get away. I had everything keeping me at home and nothing pulling me away. So even though I knew a break every now and then would help me recharge my batteries, it almost never happened.

But now, when I feel like the stress is becoming unbearable and my nerves are close to being shot, I plan a night or two with Jay to counterbalance everything else going on in my life. Just getting away from the usual routine helps me regain my equilibrium and return to my place as a productive and pleasant member of my family and society. Jay and I are old friends and the comfort that comes from being at his house with no responsibilities and a glass of wine does something miraculous to my anxiety level. I remember how to breathe, how to laugh, and how to see the sparkle in someone’s eye. Jay reminds me, through our conversations and caresses, to be gentle, compassionate, and vulnerable. He helps restore my sense of calm and sends me back to Austin with a soft heart that is better able to deal with the stress of real life.

As the saying goes, I was poly when poly wasn’t cool. Jay is my current lover but I’ve been enjoying the benefits of this type of arrangement for 10 years, long before Austin and I met. I’ve occasionally tried to fit myself back into the box of monogamy but now I’m thoroughly convinced that having a lover makes me a better wife, so I’m not inclined to give it up any time soon.

A walk in the park are you satisfied

There is a time in your life to get a grip about going down the road of life.
At times you will get on your knees and beg for happiness then you found it,
only to be begging again. If that light of destiny shines on your life like a
screw embedded in the floor marking space and time. That is where your
happiness is, a point marked and stamped!

If you found it then why run from it. How does a destiny of a screw embedded
in the floor pointing, compares to chasing dead ends?
In my life in times over and over I ended up in the road where I had
missed a past girlfriend while I was like on a roller coaster.
Where the roller coaster had no meaning vs a past love.
I got hit by cupid in 1996 with a lady I met at a McDonald's.
She was in my mind for days even when I looked out the
Saint Louis arch I was looking for the town I saw her in.
Told my friends I need to go back to that town.
And when I did I looked for her in the ladies bathroom.
in the McDondald's. (Saying anyone in there first.) Love sick!!!

In your life you need to ask that question also! What are you chasing after?
Your career like a dog chasing it's tail, round and round, where you need to be
chasing your love of life's rear or vise versa or whichever comes first!
Something big is something big and that is where you need to think about
how that compares to the dead end you are heading for.

Like a gas tanker we all hit the wall in our career as in turning 55 to 60+
what is that going to be like. Being 55+ is that time where you need to see
where you are going to be at... What are you missing, what do you need so
you will be where you need to be when you get there. Or boom the gas tanker
hits the wall where your life is in a hell or regret of not doing!

Money is not happiness it's sort of the same as having a business with low taxes
but with nothing to be taxed because most people do without because they are
broke from tax cuts being the poor takes in more tax help than they payout.
Looking at the high prices and walking away forcing consumer based pricing
at $7 after taxes pay of the consumers in town! Crazy but it's the point of life!
But in all of that mess would it matter if you are missing out where your
happiness really is! No business last like the lasting love of a embedded
lover in destiny. That is the point to ask what is your career's worth vs that!

~~~~~How To Be More Satisfied With Your Life – 5 Steps Proven By Research
Happiness is being happy in your life. We experience it immediately and in the moment.
Life satisfaction is being happy about your life.

It is the happiness that exists when we talk about the past and the big picture.

What can we do to not just be happy in the moment, but to feel satisfied with our lives?

~~~~~As a musician are you satisfied with your relationships
Do you ever feel like you have difficulty maintaining your relationships and friendships? Or are you dissatisfied with those you do have? Or perhaps you feel a void in your life and wish that you had more grounding relationships? Social life for musicians can be difficult, as the schedule and hours are different from the typical 9 to 5 workday. This can make your social circles very insular, since you may find yourself socializing only with other musicians. Also, when your work schedule is constantly changing and evolving, friendships and relationships may enter and exit your life in a rapid fashion. You may develop a close bond with a friend during a gig and then when the gig has ended, you may find that your friendship is over as well. In today’s world of hyper-connectivity, where everyone is always plugged into phones and tablets, there is the illusion of closeness – and yet in your personal life, you may actually experience a great sense of loneliness. In the music industry, you are constantly “starting over” in meeting new people whenever you start a new gig, and friendships may be intense, yet very short-lived.

Given that, do you find yourself preoccupied with the impending loss of friendships and bandmates when you begin a new project? Perhaps you detach yourself from others prematurely, knowing that your work together will soon end and so too will the friendships and relationships you have made. After all, unlike a typical desk job where you have the luxury of seeing your co-workers every day, in the music industry you may never cross paths with co-workers again – and if you do, it may only be in a superficial and fleeting way.
If you notice this to be a pattern in your life, it is important that you take stock of it. As the Huffington Post reported a few years ago, the deterioration of connections with each other “not only impoverishes our personal and communal lives, but also has significant effect on our health and wellbeing.”

So while the nature of your work may present specific challenges to maintaining intimate friendships, you do have the power to feel like your best self! Realize that the act of talking and processing one’s feelings aloud with a friend can have a very calming and cathartic effect. And ask yourself these questions: Am I feeling nourished and fulfilled by my relationships? Are my needs being met? If not, you may suffer depression, hopelessness or isolation. These feelings may affect your ability to focus and bring your best self forward in your work.

Why wait to address your concerns? Now is as good a time as any to reach out and get the support you need. The Musicians’ Assistance Program offers free and confidential short-term counseling for all Local 802 members. Call today to set up an appointment with one of our social workers. We can work with you to explore your feelings and develop strategies for creating and sustaining nourishing friendships and relationships in your future.

We can also refer you to other services that will enhance your physical, mental and financial well-being. Need help navigating the health insurance system? Applying for affordable housing? Finding more job opportunities? We are here to answer your questions and provide a supportive space to discuss your needs.
We also provide financial wellness services (including budget counseling) and we are the gateway to the union’s Emergency Relief Fund, which offers financial assistance to cover the cost of an urgent bill. Our office is located on the sixth floor of the Local 802 building and we are open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Please call us at (212) 397-4802 to schedule an appointment with one of our social workers. We look forward to meeting you and beginning our work together!

Mysterious Ways and the Boom Boom

"If you want to kiss the sky, better learn how to kneel On your knees, boy!"
That I have with a lady I fell for. But to note at the time I knew this was a big
thing, a destiny kind of thing, red string of fate. So I did, beg her to come back
as I was on my knees! When you have a destiny its clear, because she has boom boom!

But the point is the healing power of lovers in space and time.
Support is a healing thing if you love your lover you have their best interest
in mind. So in their nature they are supported as they get pushed back from the cliff
they are going off. So if one is happy all is happy also! Never a bad thing!
It's just the point of doing so. There is a time to let in the love so your lover can have
the same. About the lovers boom, boom and value to each other and to all!

~~~~~Love Heals
Ways That Love Benefits Your Health:

Love improves self-esteem, which leads to better self-care. Self-love is key because when you love yourself, you are much more likely to engage in activities that contribute to better nutrition and physical fitness, and less likely to make unhealthy lifestyle choices.

Love is a great antidote to stress. Love counteracts the fight-or-flight response that we so often find ourselves in. Even low levels of stress cause the body to release cortisol, which is associated with an increased risk of developing high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease and depression. Love downregulates the production of cortisol. Love encourages your body to produce oxytocin, the "feel-good" or "love" hormone. Oxytocin can reduce cardiovascular stress and improve the immune system, which in turn decreases cell death and inflammation. Love also causes the production in your brain of norepinephrine and dopamine (both hormones associated with adrenaline), which leads to increased feelings of joy and pleasure. Love really is your best medicine.

Love decreases anxiety and staves off depression, which subsequently reduces the signs and symptoms of heart disease. In his book Love and Survival: Eight Pathways to Intimacy and Health, Dean Ornish, M.D describes one study where married men who suffered from angina (chest pains) experienced far less angina if they felt loved by their wives, even despite high risk factors like high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and diabetes.

Love decreases inflammation, improves your immune system, and can be a potent pain reliever. A recent study from the Institute for Behavioral Medicine Research at Ohio State University College of Medicine showed that people who are lonely develop more reactivation of latent viruses than those that are well connected. Possible mechanisms for these actions include increased release of cytokines, better relaxation and the release of endorphins

Sleeping next to someone you love makes you feel more relaxed, which helps you to sleep better. Numerous studies have linked the benefits to the feel-good hormone oxytocin. Adequate rest is vital to heart health and overall well-being, as much of the reparative work of the body is done during sleep.

The Negative Results of Concealing Who You Really Are on the Job

These are strange times. Well it's even worse if you had a sheltered life!
But progress rolls regardless. These are times to have no fear because fear is a way to 
control and in these days those days are ending! As we all look at our lives knowing we 
are getting older missing out wasting the mass of your life for no reason as you look back
in regret. In this time please live with no regret be open fair be for the better of the good!

In the workplace with me most know I love a married lady that worked there. 
I do get the feedback that I am good for her. Unsaid it is approved.
Well I do get that feedback. Love and support regardless.

Polyandry in the workplace? It's funny looking at it!
But in my view I don't hide it's not the best thing to do anyway.
For personal, in Psychology with me I have the view many have that Psychology
today is pointed to conceal the problems where it really needs to be revealed,
resolving the problem. To fix the needs, so the needs are met and resolved
in a interpersonal circle.

So in the workplace to resolve the issues it's best to not conceal it in the first 
place! Being who you are is your right in the workplace!
You will never know what will happen in the workplace!

When I was a dishwasher in a hotel my co-worker met a lady and went in
her room came, back six hours later and told me he met a lady and he quit the 
next day. A year latter they came back and told me they where going to 
get married. So life is worth it, so in view it is worth being yourself at work!
Give it all you got if it happens it happens! 

It's better than working till you die at your station! Why die at work unhappy? 
Also it helps you in your workplace if you don't spend much effort concealing
all the time! Just be yourself and get to work!

~~~~~Truth or Consequences? The Negative Results of Concealing 
Who You Really Are on the Job.
Critcher’s paper, “The Cost of Keeping it Hidden: Decomposing Concealment Reveals What Makes it Depleting,” forthcoming in the Journal of Experimental Psychology: General, details multiple negative consequences of concealment. Concealment produces deficits because of the difficulty of having to constantly monitor one’s speech for secret-revealing content that needs to be edited out, says Critcher, who co-authored the article with Melissa Ferguson of Cornell University.

The researchers conducted four studies, each of which was a variation on a single paradigm. When participants arrived at the study, they learned they would be taking part in an interview. Following a rigged drawing, all participants learned they were assigned to be an interviewee. Another supposed participant—who, in reality, was an actor hired by the researchers—was the interviewer.

Some participants were given special instructions about what they could reveal in the interview. In three of the four studies, some participants were told they should make sure not to reveal their sexual orientation while answering the questions. For example, participants were told that in answering questions, instead of saying “I tend to date men who …,” the participants could say, “I tend to date people who ….”
After the interview, participants thought they were moving on to an unrelated study. In actuality, this second part of the experiment was related, offering researchers the opportunity to measure whether participants’ intellectual, physical, or interpersonal skills were degraded by concealment. The studies revealed a variety of negative effects of concealment.

In one study, participants completed a measure of spatial intelligence that was modeled after military aptitude tests. Participants randomly assigned to conceal their sexual orientation performed 17 percent worse than those who went through the interview without instructions to conceal. In another experiment, participants tasked with hiding their sexual orientation exhibited reduced physical stamina, squeezing an exercise handgrip for 20 percent less time than those in a control condition. Another study revealed that concealment led people to show less interpersonal restraint. After having to conceal their sexual orientation, participants responded to a “snarky” email from a superior with more anger than politeness. During another test, participants demonstrated poorer performance on a “Stroop task,” a commonly used measure of executive cognitive function. In all cases, the willpower necessary to conceal  sexual orientation left people with fewer resources to perform well on other tasks.

In some studies, the researchers varied whether the interview questions focused on participants’ personal or dating life, or on topics for which one’s sexual orientation would never be revealed. Concealment caused similarly sharp declines in both cases. “Environments that explicitly or implicitly encourage people to conceal their sexual orientation—even when employers adopt a ‘Don’t Ask’ policy by not directly inquiring about employees’ sexual orientation—may significantly harm workers,” says Critcher.
“Establishing a workplace climate that encourages openness by supporting diversity may be one of the easiest ways to enhance workplace productivity.”

~~~~~Coming out at work: Showing your true self
"Have faith that people will respect you for being the person you truly are."
