I can tell you that it's a total close to 1 gig of WORDZ, wordz that it will become increasingly difficult to process into some sort (pun intended) of order as *things* progress.
I am not so *into* WORDZ that I hang onto all this like some anal retentive .. there is some real gems of wisdom in there, and then there are those pages that are meant to become part of some larger whole I am always CONtemplating. You know, that inevitable Earthlings Anonymous Big Book. Or like taking this blog and making an ebook out of it, and asking for donations of people who download it which seems the most "heroic" way of dealing with this unwieldy, unmanagable collection of WORDZ.
These wordz I save up are POINTERS, inukshuks of the direction I am heading .. they also point out DANGERZ to be avoided, as any good inukshuk should do.
I have a real interest in getting down in WORDZ what I think about giving away Canada's water; and making plans to do so IN SECRET.
I would like to write about my beading "process" - how I decide upon my designs when I make up all these fussy little for other people. The compromises I make when I follow through and produce something. I'd like to write a script for DVDs about beading - a DVD which would show my teacher at work, so that the next seven generations can benefit from her expertise. I want to produce the DVDs myself, and have bought a special printer to print the DVD "labels" on.. .just to make sure this POSSIBILITY becomes a PROBABILITY.
I want to write WORDZ about all this dual brained activity I am constantly engaging in - and how I try to pass along to YOU, the reader, the EXPERIENCE of having your brain being interactively engaged when you read this. I want to show that by sharing my WORDZ and images, you come out all the wiser ... There was always a POINT to those pics I posted. A reason I searched HIGH and LOW to find exactly what I wanted on this space. I became very unglued when I couldn't do that for awhile. I finally figured out how to fix that, when suddenly, I got tempted to play with the format of these WORDZ and ICONIC "symbols" and get a new template and found my way into another disaster!! But it got me off my cyberbutt, and I am now looking into REAL web development .. learning about coding, and open source, and community BUILDING.
"They" say The Almighty called The ONEiverse into being with WORDZ. IN the beginning was the word, we are told. I prefer to think our creative parent SANG it into being (perhaps eeched it) with perfect harmony ... but the way my wordz come out is not always "lyrical", it's more of a Mad Opera. An opera with me as the Spiritual Warrioress star trying to rallly the trooops to SAVE THIS PLANET, which seems to be falling apart exponentially. Maybe it was always so; may be I was in too much denial, I really do not KNOW. What I do KNOW, is that the fact I have worked so hard in these six/sex decades to master the wordz inside me, that, I cannot fail to be able to sing my swan song aria when the "time" comes. I am dieing a little bitch each day.
So I want that old voice of mine to carry on. That's why I chose radio as a career, way back when I LOVED the idea of my voice carrying on in radio waves INFINITELY, FOREVER. What I did not REAL-ize is that EVERY Thing I SAY and every thing I think goes on forever, radio waved or no. What I do and what I say makes a difference in the Oneiverse ...
As I write this (wondering how many typos there really are, how many words miffed, how little sense the flow of this may make), I am printing out the entire list of Magic Cards available to those who "play" that game, the one under license. 105 pages with about 100 per page. Magic is my pathway. I play with it constantly. This deck however belongs to my son. I think he would rather "play" at someone else's "game", than create his own and we just talked about that on the phone. Wake up! I say. You may die with lots of good ideas flowing in you that you are NOT allowing to come out. Quit playing other people's games, with other people's rules and dis-cover for yourself all you can put out there. Live it! Celebrate it! Be grateful for it! And thank yourself for being willing to go through the process of finding out it's worth it, becuz YOU are worth it. I would tell anyone this -- and I am not Rilke ...
Magique! C'est la Vie! absolutely effing unbelievable Magique creates life. But you must know the right WORDZ to create it, eh? Even though they trip me up and forget about ONEness and how everyone is simply another myself and lead to dichotomization of EVERYTHING, those wordZ a mine, they let me SOAR! I become the EAGLE. I Roar! I become the Tigress! I sob and I become your little grrrrrl.
They are my feast at the spiritual banquet and the wine that stains my lipz.
I have survived this long, I owe them alot. Even if I am misunderstood, I move on until I find someone who finds the important behind the syllables.
Tomorrow is drupal camp. It's not about wordz so much as something about ORGANIZING, which it surely takes WORDZ to do. People in the IT world forget that computers are totally reliant on wordz and codes and icons and are basically operating to printout ever more WORDZ. They forget the MAGIQUE of what is really behind the technology. Whiz! Bang! Alakazam! with one brief phrase bring me the Planetary Creatrix to harness at my command!
Do I practice Magic? You bet. I practice and practice and practice .. that's the only way I'll ever get good at it. So the wizardress goes to bed, perchance to dream. I wonder what my alters will have to say tonight. I blanket mySELF in their wordz for ONcE,....
And to all a GOOD night!!

THE NEW WORLD DISORDER
'Hands off our water,' Canadians say
Washington think tank sets 'North American agenda' for resource
Posted: May 10, 2007
1:00 a.m. Eastern
By Jerome R. Corsi
© 2007 WorldNetDaily.com
Two activist groups are launching a campaign to prevent what they fear will be a massive grab of Canadian fresh water, estimated to be one-fifth of the world's supply, engineered with the help of major U.S. think tanks supporting globalization.
The Council of Canadians, a public advocacy group opposed to the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America, and the Coalition for Water Aid, a Montreal group fighting for transparency in globalist discussions of water policy, have expressed concern over an April 27 three-day closed-door conference held in Calgary by politicians, businessmen, and academics from the U.S. and Canada.
Among the discussion subjects was a private report prepared by the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington-based think tank, in conjunction with a Mexican university and a Canadian business trade group.
Secret think tank report leaked to press
(Story continues below)
The "Project," according to the copy released by the Council of Canadians, was a joint effort by the CSIS, the Centro de Investigation y Docencia Economicas in Mexico, and the Conference Board of Canada, a group comparable to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
A search by WND of the CSIS website failed to find a copy of the report.
But the North American Future 2025 Project calls for a series of seven closed-door roundtables to be held by somewhere between 21 to 45 politicians, academics, and businessmen from the U.S., Mexico, and Canada (an equal number from each country) "to analyze, comprehend, and anticipate" North American integration trends between now and 2025.
The leaked report calls for a conclusion on the future of North American integration "to be presented in 2007 to the executive and legislative branches of the governments of North America."
The final report in September 2007 will be "produced in the three official languages – English, Spanish, and French – as part of an effective dissemination strategy aimed at maximizing the policy impact of the report."
North American continental water resources
The CSIS report notes that "fresh water is running out in many regions of the world."
In North America, the report stressed that "particularly the United States and Mexico will experience water scarcity as a result of arid climates coupled with growing populations and increased water consumption."
In the next paragraph, the CSIS report observed that, "Juxtaposed to the relative scarcity of water in the United States and Mexico, Canada possesses about 20 percent of the earth's fresh water."
"The United States and Mexico share at least 18 aquifers, and a significant portion of these countries' population is already experiencing problems with the availability and contamination of water," the report continued.
While the report called for North American fresh water to be the subject of Roundtable VII, "The Future of North American Border Infrastructure and Logistics," the conclusion was strongly suggested.
"The three nations will have to overcome the bureaucratic challenges posed by their different political systems and legal regimes," the report concluded, "particularly if the overriding future goal of North America is to achieve joint optimum utilization of the available water and to implement procedures that will help avoid or resolve differences over water in face of ever-increasing pressures over this priceless resource."
"Hands off our water!" Canadians object
The website of the Council of Canadians strongly objects to this North American agenda, contending that, "Because Canada manages the largest fresh water resources in the world, companies are lining up to pump, bottle and privatize our water for their profit."
"The Council of Canadians is calling on Canadians to 'Act now!' by joining in 'a national campaign to ensure water is a human right and to encourage Canadians to act locally to protect our waters,'" the group said.
The Council of Canadians has produced a brochure, "ACT for Canada's Water," calling for Canada to develop a national water policy aimed to "preserve and protect our water for future generations."
The Coalition for Water Aid has also declared opposition "to the continentalization of water for market purposes or continental geopolitical considerations."
Coalition president Andr� Bouthiller responded to the CSIS report by protesting, "Since when does the Canadian government have a mandate to negotiate sovereignty over national resources with interest groups and lobbyists?"
The World Business Council for Sustainable Development republished a GLOBE-net.ca article noting that Canada's Environment Minister John Baird has declared that Canada has no intention to enter in any negotiations on bulk water exports or diversions.
"Canada has restrictions in place to prohibit removal of water, including diversion, backed by serious fines and/or imprisonment,� said Baird, as quoted by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development.
Freshwater management – The globalist agenda
Maude Baird, the national chairwoman of the Council of Canadians, has expressed concern that the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America trilateral working group on the environment will follow the CSIS lead by turning their attention to the continental management of fresh water resources.
"The big business community and corporate lobby groups have been granted access to the integration process," Baird told the Canadian press. "No equivalent role has been granted to labor groups, civil society, or even Parliament in Canada."
According to Baird, GWEST (Global Water & Energy Strategy Team), a Washington-based private consulting group, suggested in October 2006 exporting water from northern Manitoba to Texas through a pipeline. Baird said nothing in Canada's existing laws would prevent this scheme from being implemented.
The World Water Council, a private group granted Special Consultative status by the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations, has an agenda to place fresh water management in the hands of international authorities, away from the "fragmented control" of hundreds of thousands of local, state, and national governmental entities.
The United Nations publishes every three years a World Water Development Report, and the second of these, "Water, a Shared Responsibility," was presented to the 4th World Water Forum in Mexico City, Mexico, on March 22, 2006.
The umbrella U.N. program is the World Water Assessment Program, founded in 2002, and on its website, says there have been a number of major conferences including the Rio Earth Summit with its Agenda 21 document.
The U.N. goal is "comprehensive assessment of the world's fresh water as the basis for more integrated water management."
WAAP notes, "At the urging of the Commission on Sustainable Development and with the strong endorsement by the Ministerial Conference at The Hague in March 2000, UN Water has undertaken a collective UN system-wide continuing assessment process, the World Water Assessment Programme (WWAP)."

WESAK MOON, 2007
May 2nd at 6:10am EDT
To prepare our different bodies for the immense downpouring of spiritual energies, senior disciples will guide the attendees in an extensive preparation and purification techniques involving special physical exercises, breathing exercises and advanced meditations. In the spirit of this sacred occasion, please bring white colored attire. This is to symbolize the purity of our hearts and intention to be instruments of Divine Mercy and Compassion.Click to Download Wesak Article - Wesak Festival, A Spiritual Celebration by Glenn Mendoza, M.D.M.P.H.
The Wesak Festival, second of the Three Major Planetary Spiritual Festivals, is celebrated globally at the time of the Taurus full moon. In 2007, this event ...
The following is from www.wesak.us.
You will find further info on The Buddha (Wesak) Full Moon at that site. I am NOT selling tickets, merely parlaying information.
Answer the call of your HEART.
Come to California’s Mount Shasta, one of the worlds 7 sacred mountains.
Connect with those of like mind on your life path.
Be Inspired! Be Uplifted! Be Healed! Be part of the Awakening.
Wesak 2007 occurs May 4-6 in sacred Mount Shasta. This annual event begun by the late Dr. Joshua Stone is held in what some consider "the holiest place outside the actual Wesak Valley". It continues in its 13th year under the direction of Dawn Fazende, editor of Mount Shasta Magazine. Luminaries and pioneers in the realms of Healing and Conscious Human Evolution converge to explore the realms where science and spirit merge.
Mount Shasta is one of the seven sacred mountains in the world. The very atmosphere here is charged with powerful energetic currents. The mountain is considered alternately as the Heart Chakra or the Head Chakra of the planet. The I AM Activity, a religion based on instructions dictated by St. Germain in the 1930s on Mt. Shasta, states that this is the place where Christ energy enters the planetary grid. Many believe there is a city under the mountain and that Mt. Shasta is a portal between dimensions. Lenticular clouds frequently seen here are said to be created when a vehicle moves between dimensions. Local Native Americans believe Mt. Shasta is where God lives and Creation began. Tibetan Buddhists, who are building a monastery here, have 28 specific criteria a mountain must meet to be called sacred. Mt. Shasta is the only one in the USA that meets all 28. People have been drawn to be present with Mt. Shasta’s pristine and beautiful natural environment for years. They come to renew their souls and spirits and, at Wesak, to hear the best teachers available anywhere who assist with their personal development.
Wesak, in my opinion, marks the beginning of the Spiritual New Year.
Wesak is the full moon of in the sun sign of Taurus (which is actually the full moon of Scorpio). It is the time chosen by Buddhists for celebration of Buddha's birth, enlightenment, and in some traditions, his death. His life is honored during this full moon by millions of devout Buddhists. Some make the treacherous journey to the actual Wesak Valley high in the Himalayas where they gather to chant and pray, important parts of a traditional Buddhist Wesak celebration. In Mount Shasta we use the opportunity of this most powerful time to learn new things, heal old wounds.
It is also said that Wesak full moon is that time of the year during which the Christ gathers the entire Spiritual Hierarchy together in meditation to invoke the forces of Shambhalla. The Buddha, representing those forces, appears and blesses humanity. Sacred Mount Shasta is a conduit for channeling that energy throughout the planet. We gather to collectively act as conduits for these blessings from the spiritual realms. We consciously open our hearts and minds to new knowledge and healing.
During the actual ceremony, a vast crowd of humans and Ascended Masters assembles in the actual Wesak valley. Alice A. Bailey describes this event in The Unfinished Autobiography. It is said that the Christ and the Buddha conduct the ceremony of Wesak from a rock table at the end of the valley described by Bailey as "...an immense rock, rising out of the floor of the valley like a great table." In Mount Shasta we gather to merge with this Wesak Valley ceremony and receive its blessings.
The Wesak Festival, aka The Buddha's Blessing, is the second of the three major spiritual planetary festivals and, as stated above, is celebrated at the full moon during the sun sign of Taurus. (The first, in Ares, is the Festival of the Christ and the third, in the Gemini sun, is the Festival of Humanity.) The Buddha is the divine intermediary between the highest spiritual center and the Hierarchy. Those who come to Mt. Shasta act as vessels to receive and carry the messages, teachings and healings of Wesak.
Wesak is the most powerful Full Moon of the year. The Sun's transit through Taurus exalts the Moon. Taurus is ruled by Venus, the spiritual ruler of Earth. Venus is identified with Mary, the World Mother. May, the month of Taurus, is the month of Mary. Venus appears in the west as the feathered serpent god Quetzalcoatl who brought enlightenment to the Mayans; in the east she is Maya, mother of the Buddha.
Wesak is a blessing to the planet. It's a time when enlightened beings of all kinds come together to collectively focus their highest energies toward the conscious evolution of our species and our planet. Every living thing benefits from this outpouring of intention.
