Spiritual Activism, Part 1: The Holistic Approach

December 14, 2023

Everything I want and need is within me;
I am connected to All That Is;
I am perfectly aligned with my Soul; Solutions come easily to me now;
Easy, easy, easy. Everything is easy.

This is the mantra I have been saying for the last couple months, and it is perhaps my most powerful one yet, because I often witness immediate results. I sometimes just say the last line, especially when I am having trouble with a task. Again, I cannot stress how powerful mantras are when you say them constantly. They override the voice of the mind-control program and rewire your brain. Everything we do should be easy. I will go into this is greater detail in my planned article on duality, to which this one is a companion. It priobably should have come first, but the materials I needed for this one have just fallen into my lap, especially since I am becoming reaquainted with my precious friends—my books, that have been packed away in Sterilite bins on my porch and elsewhere. They are still packed, but all around me now, labelled so I can easily find what I need, and remember those I had forgotten.

So what is spiritual activism? There are lots of people who belong to activist groups and philanthropic organizations that do not have the right attitude. And there are those of of us, especially Dane, myself and many in his anti-geoengineering activist group, Geoengineering Watch who are truly passionate about what we do, and people in other groups as well. But even more important is to adopt the attitude that everything we do must be done with the attitude of spiritual evolution, for ourselves and the planet—activities based on raising the vibrational frequencies of the earth and beyond. For many of us, that is our true mission.

In this article and many upcoming ones, I will feature Ingrid Newkirk, Founder and President of PETA, who is known as a monster and has let her passion turn her into something obnoxious that people avoid. I see myself becoming that way, too which is why I have been avoiding people. OK, I realize I should not go through people's shopping carts in grocery stores and point out everything that is bioengineered, nor should she accost people who are wearing fur coats. Nevertheless, even though PETA has a terrible reputation, they have done amazing work in stopping many of the unspeakable activies of animal abuse committed by people, companies and institutions. Her book, Save the Animals: 101 Easy Things You Can Do, that I just complete shocked and horrified me, and I have been a vegetarian and animal rights activist for 33 years. More on this later, in fact a whole lot more, as I will extend my coverage of it through many articles.

Dane often says he lives in a state of "controlled rage," as many of us do, out of frustration from dealing with the bulk of the population, whose lives revolve around greed, apathy, moral blindness and self-absorption, unable to see the oncoming train as we are all tied to the tracks. And worse, are those who refuse to tell the truth, even though their lies will kill them, too. I often find myself yearning for it all to be over, so those of us who have stayed true to their mission can transform to the new state of being, and end up in the new reality they have created. I can truly say that I do not care what happens to the great bulk of the population, and a good portion of them needs to be permanently exterminated, starting with Bill Gates, with a long, long line after him. So many of us have poured our life and energy into our cause, but at the root, this is spiritual warfare. All of it. Therefore, what can we do to accelerate the completion of our mission successfully? The answer is, again, to change our attitude to one of spiritual evolution, and make that the goal of everything we do. In effecting this change, we will be working in the realm of the non-physical, where change is immediate. As we continue to transform, transfigure, metamorphose into higher levels and states of being than we are now, the gap between non-physical and physical evolution will diminish until it disappears all together.

There have been many spiritual activists before us, but perhaps not so many in modern times. Two from the the past, or ancient time are probably best-known. Siddhartha Gautama, the founder of Buddhism, was a wandering ascetic and religious teacher who lived in South Asia during the 6th or 5th century BCE. And of course, later on was Jesus, but even he couldn't always control his rage, as with the money-changers in the Temple. In modern times, Mohandas Gandhi was one of the best examples of a spiritual person doing non-spiritual work, and fully integrating the two, or dissolving the walls of duality. Here once again is the wonderful book I reviewed earlier this year, and included in numerous articles, all listed at the bottom of the page. After this, I will retire the book and it will go in one of my many "done" bins!
The Wit and Wisdom of Gandhi
I will one last time present some appropriate quotes, reflecting his personal commitment to spiritual evolution and trusting that everything else would work out as it should. The third quote refers to one of his numerous stints in jail and is similar to Henry David Thoreau, who will be covered next in this article. The last two are particularly appropriate for our current situation here on Planet Earth.

I am but a poor struggling soul yearning to be wholly good—wholly truthful and wholly non-violent in thought, word and deed, but ever failing to reach the ideal which I know to be true. I admit . . . that it is a painful climb, but the pain of it is a positive pleasure for me. Each step upward makes me feel stronger and fit for the next.

I had long since taught myself to follow the inner voice. I delighted in submitting to it. To act against it would be difficult and painful to me.

Non-violence implies voluntary submission to the penalty for non-cooperation with evil. I am here, therefore, to invite and submit cheerfully to the highest penalty that can be afflicted upon me for what in law is a deliberate crime, and what appears to me to be the highest duty of a citizen.

If you would spiritualize the practice of law, [do not] make your profession subservient to the interests of your purse, as is unfortunately but too often the case at present, but use your profession for the service of your country. . . . The fees charged by lawyers are unconscionable everywhere. . . . In the practice of their profession, lawyers are consciously or unconsciously led into untruth for the sake of their clients. . . . The duty of a lawyer is always to place before the judges and to help them arrive at the truth, never to prove the guilty as innocent.

The culture of the mind must be subservient to the culture of the heart.

In matters of conscience, the law of majority has no place.

Liberty and democracy become unholy when their hands are dyed red with innocent blood.

I cannot look at this butchery going on in the world with indifference. I have an unchangeable faith that it is beneath the dignity of men to resort to mutual slaughter.

Wow! But it was Henry David Thoreau who came before Gandhi and was one of his role models. Having just read Thoreau's essay, On the Duty of Civil Disobedience, it is obvious that Gandhi had followed in his footsteps, as their philosophies are so similar. And they both had an immense respect for Nature, which is essential for anyone who is working toward spiritual tranformation/transfiguration. Gandhi, of course, was a strict Hindu, so he was an advocate of vegetarianism. I don't think Thoreau was, but I'm not sure. I am sure however, that he was at one with the natural world, and like Gandhi (and myself) preferring a life of poverty rather than being a slave to the material world. This essay, and his book, Walden; or, Life in the Woods, were his two most famous works, the latter about his retreat into the woods near Walden Pond, to remove himself from society and discover who he was. For anyone devoted to the spiritual path and the creation of the New Paradigm (wherever it may manifest), these two works are essential. Please start by reading my two reviews. I have included a great deal of information on Thoreau in On the Duty of Civil Disobedience, along with lots of links, including one for Project Gutenberg, where his books are available for free as eBooks, or may be read online. I also included numerous quotes from the essay, and will include other ones here. Let us begin with those. Here's an example of what I stated at the beginning of this article. Unless the right spiritual attitude is maintained in any form of activism, the result will be miminal at best.

What is the price-current of an honest man and patriot today? They hesitate, and they regret, and sometimes they petition; but they do nothing in earnest and with effect. They will wait, well disposed, for others to remedy the evil, that they may no longer have it to regret. At most, they give only a cheap vote, and a feeble countenance and Godspeed, to the right, as it goes by them. There are nine hundred and ninety-nine patrons of virtue to one virtuous man; but it is easier to deal with the real possessor of a thing than with the temporary guardian of it.

These next two reflect the gross hypocrisy we are experiencing now in the form of people who talk, but never follow through in their actions. I have said repeatedly that if I had a dollar for everyone I spoke with concerning climate engineering and the other heinous activities going on today, who have sworn to follow through on both Dane's and my website, but never did, I would be a rich woman by now. I have stats pages. I can see the activity on my website. I cannot identify actual people, but I notice new I.P.s, as opposed to regular readers, whose I.P.s are familiar. I have been studying I.P.s for eleven years—I'm pretty good at it. This is also exactly what Dane means when he says that these climate/weather warfare atrocities we are battling would not be happening without the active or passive support of the majority of the population.

See what gross inconsistency is tolerated. I have heard some of my townsmen say, "I should like to have them order me out to help put down an insurrection of the slaves, or to march to Mexico,—see if I would go;" and yet these very men have each, directly by their allegiance, and so indirectly, at least, by their money, furnished a substitute. The soldier is applauded who refuses to serve in an unjust war by those who do not refuse to sustain the unjust government which makes the war; is applauded by those whose own act and authority he disregards and sets at naught; as if the State were penitent to that degree that it hired one to scourge it while it sinned, but not to that degree that it left off sinning for a moment. Thus, under the name of Order and Civil Government, we are all made at last to pay homage to and support our own meanness. After the first blush of sin, comes its indifference; and from immoral it becomes, as it were, unmoral, and not quite unnecessary to that life which we have made.

The broadest and most prevalent error requires the most disinterested virtue to sustain it. The slight reproach to which the virtue of patriotism is commonly liable, the noble are most likely to incur. Those who, while they disapprove of the character and measures of a government, yield to it their allegiance and support, are undoubtedly its most conscientious supporters, and so frequently the most serious obstacles to reform.

And here's another quote relating directly to civil disobedience when laws are illegal and immoral. Incidentally, I linked the Wikipedia page to the Mexican-American War to my review of Thoreau's essay. It is quite long but essential reading if you are a citizen of the U.S.A.. I have it on my desktop, and have been studying it. Oh, my. I really was not that familiar with it, but I am now, and have a lot to share in one of my forthcoming issues of this series.

If the injustice is part of the necessary friction of the machine of government, let it go, let it go: perchance it will wear smooth,—certainly the machine will wear out. If the injustice has a spring, or a pulley, or a rope, or a crank, exclusively for itself, then perhaps you may consider whether the remedy will not be worse than the evil; but if it is of such a nature that it requires you to be the agent of injustice to another, then, I say, break the law. Let your life be a counter friction to stop the machine. What I have to do is to see, at any rate, that I do not lend myself to the wrong which I condemn.

These next two paragraphs exult in the effectiveness of refusing to cooperate with what is evil, and also applauds the benefits of separating from the material world. What one doesn't have cannot be taken from them, therefore that person cannot be threatened with losing something they don't have or be made a slave to their money. Yes, I am a firm believer in that. There are other ways to survive and thrive, and I believe we will soon find that to be the case. Those who have lived a life of comfort will suffer much more than those have adopted a simple, holistic lifestyle. Just wait. It is coming, I guarantee.

Cast your whole vote, not a strip of paper merely, but your whole influence. A minority is powerless while it conforms to the majority; it is not even a minority then; but it is irresistible when it clogs by its whole weight. If the alternative is to keep all just men in prison, or give up war and slavery, the State will not hesitate which to choose. If a thousand men were not to pay their tax-bills this year, that would not be a violent and bloody measure, as it would be to pay them, and enable the State to commit violence and shed innocent blood. This is, in fact, the definition of a peaceable revolution, if any such is possible. If the tax-gatherer, or any other public officer, asks me, as one has done, "But what shall I do?" my answer is, "If you really wish to do any thing, resign your office." When the subject has refused allegiance, and the officer has resigned his office, then the revolution is accomplished. But even suppose blood should flow. Is there not a sort of blood shed when the conscience is wounded? Through this wound a man's real manhood and immortality flow out, and he bleeds to an everlasting death. I see this blood flowing now.

I have contemplated the imprisonment of the offender, rather than the seizure of his goods,—though both will serve the same purpose,—because they who assert the purest right, and consequently are most dangerous to a corrupt State, commonly have not spent much time in accumulating property. To such the State renders comparatively small service, and a slight tax is wont to appear exorbitant, particularly if they are obliged to earn it by special labor with their hands. If there were one who lived wholly without the use of money, the State itself would hesitate to demand it of him. But the rich man—not to make any invidious comparison—is always sold to the institution which makes him rich. Absolutely speaking, the more money, the less virtue; for money comes between a man and his objects, and obtains them for him; it was certainly no great virtue to obtain it.

Unfortunately, despite the efforts of Thoreau and those who followed him as their role model, such as Martin Luther King, Jr., the ideals he envisioned for a better America (and world) never materialized, because the majority of the population preferred to sit back and let others take control, rather than they themselves taking responsibility. So now we find ourselves in this terrible place and the only means to end it will be total collapse. And collapse it will, taking everything else down with it.

Here is a related article by John and Nisha Whitehead from The Rutherford Institute—an organization that helps people fight government harrassment and abuse.
Traitor to the Constitution: The U.S. Government Is the Real Criminal

Is this some kind of inherent defect in governments in general? Or is it a defect in the human population? People who are spiritually awake and aware love and respect themselves above all else. Those that have not cultivated self-love are incapable of truly loving others. Those who respect themselves never, under any circumstances, sit back and allow others to treat them abusively, either by resisting—passively or actively—or in some other way refusing to cooperate with their abuser. Here's another appropriate article. Locusts, indeed. Yes, that would be the U.S., and many other wealthy western nations.
Rudolf Steiner’s Threefold Social Order

And one last article by John and Nisha, reminding us that voting is absolutely useless. I would say that most of us who are truly spiritually oriented do not vote. I certainly do not. Dane doesn't. And Thoreau didn't either. I included his thoughts on that in the review of his essay, linked above. And furthermore, as I've been saying, the likelihood that there will be another election in this country stands at about zero at this point, I believe. But again, whatever happens here, we will end up somewhere, and no matter how we leave this planet, it must be with a clear mind and strong spirit so that in the next reality we create, we will not make the same mistakes we made in this one. ALL of these catastrophes would have never come to be, had the entire human population focused on spiritual evolution first, because all else that followed would be based on right action.
Stop Drinking the “Political Kool-Aid”, America: Voting Will Not Save Us

Today, there are so many areas that need our urgent attention, so there are also many areas of activism. But I've found that those who are most concerned with climate engineering tend to take a more holistic approach. Dane's community covers not only climate issues, but environmental, animal, health and social issues, too. And I certainly cover them all. But too many people who focus on one area, for instance, socio-political activism, are more concerned with economics and the most oblivious to the true state of the planet. As much as I respect the Whiteheads for what they're doing, this last statement applies to them. None of the scenarios they describe will reach fruition because we won't be here. Most of them couldn't care less about animals, and refuse to face the issue of over-population, which is what has gotten us into a good part of this mess to begin with. As Dane says all the time this paradigm was never sustainable. When we take a spiritual approach to life, we clearly see the big picture and how it all fits together. When we approach all the issues we face from the spiritual standpoint, it automaitcally puts us in a positive state of mind, because we are functioning at the non-physical level. In the non-physical realm, everything is possible. Keep that in mind! Our job then, is to manifest it into the physical world. Not only our reality changes, but WE change. Every day. It is easy to look at all the massive issues and be overwhelmed, but when we look at the little things that we manifest each day, we KNOW the method works. And for those of us that have had the shit beaten out of us daily from the forces we oppose, it is quite miraculous that we survive. We become a force within ourselves. There are many of us out there and we are growing stronger by the day.

And speaking of Dane, I know I said I was not planning another "Weather Article," but the climate/weather/weather warfare situation is now so incomprehensibly horrific that I cannot just ignore it. Incidentally, has everyone read my last Disclosure article, Disclosure #10.? I am currently having issues with my stats program at InMotion hosting, so I've not been able how many people have read it. I don't want to publish too many articles at once, to make sure all my regular readers have had a chance to return to them several times, and that one was particularly long, with numerous links. If you haven't read it yet, please do. It took me weeks to research and compile all that information. I noticed some repeated I.P.s on it, so I know that a number of people have returned to it several times. Anyways, I could have had this one published over a week ago, but hesitated for that reason. Please check my site often. I know there are people that do check it every day. It has been SO many years since I've had a comfortable place to work on my computer, but I do now. In fact, I've never had it like I do now—a double card table that holds my computer system with lots of room for books, notebooks, etc.. I have a big comfy chair—a plastic lawn chair with two big soft pillows—and my fingers are nice and warm. I've had to work with cold, numb fingers for the past 5-6 years. Therefore, I am getting caught up on numerous web projects and can produce pages much faster. I can download complete online web pages to save on my desktop, such as Wikipedia, to study at leisure here in my safe and sunny sanctuary without being online. At least for now. We shall see what the next move of the controllers will be. Anyways, I will gauge how fast I publish articles by how quickly people read them. Here are some of the latest weather disasters.

Beginning with the sickening tornadoes that recently hit Tennessee and Kentucky and traveled for FORTY-THREE miles on the ground. How can anyone possibly think there is anything normal or natural about ANY of these weather disasters? I recently spoke with a man who is a "white-collar" level employee on this subject. I spoke with him several years ago, and he was one of the few that actually did check out Dane's site. But when I spoke with him this time, his response was to shrug his shoulders and say, "But what can you do about it?" When people respond like that, I find myself thinking, just wait till it happens to YOU. When I spoke to a technician at InMotion Tuesday, I asked him where he lived, (Illinois), and what the weather was doing. His response? He didn't know because he had been inside all day. THIS IS A PROBLEM. How many people go from their house to a heated garage, drive to work, spend their day inside, and do the reverse after eight hours? No spiritually-oriented person could exist in such a stupor concerning the big picture taking place all around them. Nor could they sit back and choose to do nothing. It truly stuns and befuddles me. What goes around is beginning to come around very quickly now. I find myself wondering if the victims of all this orchestrated weather warfare are having an epiphany, but I am dismayed to conclude that they are probably not. The vast majority will still think it's all "just nature," or the one that really sets me off—that it's "god's will." Fine. If people want to worship some sadistic god as this, they deserve what they get. That is not spiritual awareness. It is apathy, laziness and irresponsibility. However, people outside the contiguous U.S. are much more awake. Especially in the Middle East, and even Hawaii and Alaska. Many of those people DO know they have been attacked.

The most recent tornado stories come first.
Why are people driving around in this??!! Again, total oblivion of the catastrophic nature of these orchestrated storms.

And this one! I cannot imagine the terror those nearby must have felt. These ARE orchestrated acts of terror, and will not stop unless paid liars like Ari BigSalari start telling the truth. And if they don't know the truth, then they should get a different job. A greeter at Walmart, perhaps?

And these floods! OMG, the ones in Washington State are terrifying! It particularly sickens me after what I've been through with my house. The remnants of Hurricane Laura several years ago is what knocked out half of the south wall. This rain was coming down SO HARD, it swept through like a wall of water, and was deafening. All I remember hearing was the shattering of glass, and yes, I was inside at the time. We never have just "rain" any more. I remember when I was a child. On a hot summer day, often a cloud would pass over and we'd have a brief, warm and delightful shower. We would run and play in it. But NOW!! Every rain is heavy-to-torrential, and usually cold and often severe. We were originally forecast to get an-inch-and-a-half, for the one on Saturday, but for quite a while now, most of the QPF maps have been WAY overdone. Each day, the totals went down, and when the system eventually moved through, I ended up with .4 inches, which was .4 inches more than I needed or wanted. And it was a thunderstorm. In December. In NE OHIO! Who can think that's normal? Plus, this shit they spray on us, or ME never evaporates. There is not one square inch of this farm that isn't standing water or thick gooey mud. No matter how careful I am, by the end of the day I covered with it. As Dane always points out, the purpose of these systems is to fill them with ice nucleation, because that's the only way, at this point, I believe, that we are not blazing hot. The Outlook Maps all indicate we should be way above normal. We hit 60 degrees on December 8, and three days later, the high was only 33.8. And whatever toxic shit was in this particular brew, it has made my little Goblin critically ill. I've agonized over her for the past couple days, and am very worried. Grizzy gets his usual bloody nose, but he's not sick, otherwise. After these systems move through, I automatically swab their ears with cider vinegar water. That fights infections no matter where they are. I also always put a bit in their water bowls. Goblin has back problems, and I am wondering if this ice nucleation is affecting that, like people that have rheumatism. I've been doing light and gentle massotherapy on her, which she seems to appreciate. One of her issues is that she's like a little monkey, constantly leaping up and down on things, so she might have jarred her back, because this came on suddenly. I am hoping that's the problem, because, even though it is painful, it would probably not be fatal.

Anyways, the nights have been frigid—last night went down to 20.1 degrees, but strangely enough, the greenhouse didn't get too cold and I had chosen to not move the heaters around as I did the last time it got so cold. It should NOT be this cold. In three hours, it rose ten degrees, and I'm wondering if the greenhouse is staying tolerable over night because the underlying air temperatures are now so warm. In which case, we will see the climate spin out of control very soon. Again, anyone who approaches life holistically could never accept this as normal. Dane speaks all the time about not wanting to know the truth, but he knew he had to, and once he knew, he could not just let it go. THAT is spiritual activism. Here are some recent floods.

How can all of this be met with such indifference? I am mystified. What can WE do to change the situation? We can change ourselves! That's the difference with spiritual activism. We can SEE where all this is headed, and it is NOT pretty. None of us want to experience the path on which we are headed. So we create a new path. We get off the train. Exit the freeway. Head in a new direction. As each of us individually awakens to a new world of possibilities, then we are able to let go of the past and head into the future. As more and more of us embrace a reality where these horrors do not, cannot exist, the non-physical energy manifests into our new physical world. It WORKS. I have been doing it for 43 years and I now see it being realized all around me.

Here's a bit of environmental information. I will cover this more in another article. In my review for Save the Animals linked above I included information on PCBs from the Wikipedia page. Please read that review if you haven't already. I will be using the information in that book over several articles. Here is additional info on PCBs. This one is from NOAA, not that I trust them, but it is short and much less complicated than the Wikipedia article. I don't know when this page was written, but I believe it's been just recently that "experts" have realized that these chemicals do not break down or biodegrade, as the article suggests, but persist in the . . . well, just about everywhere—in the soil, water, air, and living beings! Yes, WE are full of them. And as far as companies not knowing their unintended consequences, I'm sure Monsanto did and just didn't give a fuck. Why should they? Even with all the lawsuits they've lost because of Roundup, it is still on the market. Why? Because people STILL BUY IT. This one's a no-brainer, for anyone that still has a brain. It's called BOYCOTTING. And it is the most effective means to stop all this HORROR. Don't participate in it. Follow the advice of Thoreau. Here are two paragraphs from the article.
What are PCBs?

PCB chemicals were banned in the U.S. in 1979 because these chemicals harm human and environmental health. From the 1920s until their ban, an estimated 1.5 billion pounds of PCBs were made for things such as microscope oils, electrical insulators, capacitors, and electric appliances such as television sets or refrigerators. PCBs were also sprayed on dirt roads to keep the dust down prior to knowing some of the unintended consequences from widespread use.

PCBs can be found worldwide. In the 1960s, when initial research results were released, traces of PCBs could be detected in people and animals around the world—not only in heavily populated areas such as New York City, but also in remote areas as far as the Arctic. These findings of such widespread and persistent contamination contributed to the banning of the chemical in 1979.

The remainder of this article will cover some animal issues, beginning with a comment from Jonathan (Dr. Jonathan O'Quinn) from North Carolina, who is one of Dane's hard-working community members, and definitely spiritually, holistically oriented. Here is a beautiful post he recently made. He apologizes for all the typos. My typing is worse than his voice, even when I proof it several times!

In the yard there is an elegant shrub that has beautiful and very fragrant blossoms this time of year. It attracts lots of bumblebees and honey bees. Lately been reasonably warm during the middle of the day. Quite cold late in the afternoon, some of the bees stay out too late and get too cold to fly back to their homes. One of the puppies found a bumblebee by the shrub this afternoon, and older be apparently judging by its somewhat tattered wings. It was too cold to be able to get those wings to lift it up so it could fly home. I picked the precious little soul up with my bare hands and cut it in my hands and breathed on it to start warming it up. I then brought into the house, holding it with one hand letting it warm up further, while with the other hand, I made a sugar water solution. I broke the tip of a toothpick off and use that kind of like a medicine. Dropper to offer it drop after drop of sugar water. Once it realized what I was offering it, it stuck its tongue out and lapped up all that it could consume. I take it back outside the sunshine and continued warming it up until it was able to move its muscles enough to get the wings beating fast enough for lift off. A couple weeks ago I saw the very same bumblebee and had to warm it up again. As things progress in a certain direction, to the best of everyone's ability, please remember to be kind and gentle to the little ones, to all plants and animals, as well as to people. We are going into some challenges, the likes of which most of us can scarcely imagine.

Life is not begin at birth, nor does it end at death.

There's a silver thread connecting all life in the intricate web. There is an interconnectedness of all life, and there is another state, another dimension beyond the physical.

About a year ago, a patient of mine, who's a clinical psychologist in town, told me a story. When her son was very young, she said that one day he started talking about a woman that he apparently knew quite well. She could not figure out who this lady was. She threw out a name of someone she thought might be the person to whom he was referring. His reply was, "No, your mommy in heaven. I knew her what I was in your belly."

There to life then meets the eye. I hope that this will be helpful for people to consider in the coming weeks and months.

I was visiting some family out of town a couple days ago. At one point I stopped at a gas station. The back windows of the truck I had partly opened so that my German Shepherd could peek out and see what was going on around her. While I was filling up the tank, A man commented on her and was interested knowing more about her. We talked a bit, and I introduced him to her. I already had one of the 20 page chewing booklets out, which I was going to put in the handle of the gasoline pump. Once I was done, for the benefit of whomever we'd next use that pump. That pump. Instead, I gave that to him and told him a little bit about it, without saying enough to risk overwhelming him. Him. I put another booklet in the gasoline pump handle before I drove off.

It is helpful to be aware of the many opportunities surrounding us to reach out with information.

I sent links from the website to couple people I know This week. One of them is new to this information, I sent him a few links. One knows about the programs already. I sent him a link to the materials page so he can see again the educational materials available. I encouraged him to become engaged and sharing information at every opportunity. He's very sensitive to life including nature. I reminded him that many people, as well as all plants and all animals, have no voice but ours with which to speak up about these programs that are influencing them.

Most of the creeks ponds, rivers, lakes, etc. are not inches low, they are feet low. When Dane talks about these sprayed particulates being desiccants, he's not kidding. Some of you may be familiar with the plant commonly known as running cedar. A lot of people traditionally in North Carolina would use this around the holidays as garlands and for other ornamental uses around their homes. It is a beautiful plant. I was visiting my parents over Thanksgiving, and I mentioned this plant. I remember as a child going out in the edge of the woods to harvest some of it each year about this time of year. I was informed that it no longer grows in the woods around my parents home. It is too bone dry. Needless to say, the spraying programs are ramping up in lockstep with the downward spiral of the web of life. We may yet be able to make a difference. We will never know if we do not try.

Be encouraged, and look the storm in the eye.

I'm sorry for the typos. I don't use a desktop computer at home, and the buttons on my phone are really too small to type with, so I use voice to text, which leads to inevitable typos. Typos. I guess with me, you have to read between the words, haha!

A couple comments: He and his bumblebee are as bad as me with my long-tailed giant ichneumonid wasps, praying mantises, and all my little spiders! The other comment concerns what he said about the child knowing his deceased grandmother while in the womb. When I was studying to be certified in Energy Interference Patterning, the trainer giving the workshop (and I will do her the favor of not mentioning her name because, even though the method she taught was legitimate, she was a fraud), spoke of a similar incident of a little boy who, at a very early age, began telling his mother things that happened when he was in the womb, that he otherwise would not have known. This was back in 2004, and the method is for clearing DNA from past lives. She basically stole it from another person, though she claimed to have created it. Either way, I do not believe I would still be alive were it not for taking this course! And now, here's more from Ingrid Newkirk's book linked above, Save the Animals.

Here, I will include some quotes from Chapter 30: Mind your "Bees" and "Shrews." It is about watching our language. Just as much of the population has become sensitive about language concerning race and gender, so should we, concerning animals. When I was writing for the Youngstown Vindicator, I began a column on holistic healing. I covered everything from massage therapy to exorcism and had pretty much free reign. At the time, there was a vegan restaurant in Boardman called The Flaming Ice Cube. The owner had made up a list of substitute phrases that did not suggest harm to animals. In place of "killing two birds with one stone," she said, "slicing two carrots with one knife." It made an impression on me, so I indeed watch my bees and shrews! Here's a quote.

Best-selling author and self-described "curmudgeon" Cleveland Armory points out that we often insult each other by calling each other animal names such as "pig," "swine," "weasel," "skunk," "baboon," or "jackass." We berate each other by using animal similes such as "mean as a snake," "stubborn as a mule," "crazy as a loon," and "silly as a goose." One person ridicules another with terms like "chicken," "bull-headed," or "dumb bunny;" and a questionable situation is "fishy." Derogatory words for women include "dog," "cow," "shrew," "vixen," and "bitch." Armory notes that one dictionary definition for animal is "a bestial person."

Hmm. I love snakes. I've never met one that was "mean." Think about it. That's an easy way to become conscious of respect for all life and convert to a spiritual, holistic perception of reality. Newkirk points out that the USDA refers to cows, pigs and chickens as "grain-consuming units!" Oh, my—that TERRIBLE!! She continues, "As author Carol Adams writes, we have institutionalized the oppression of animals on at least two levels: in formal structures such as slaughterhouses, meat markets, zoos, laboratories, and circuses, and through our language."

Newkirk suggests we adopt a vocabulary that's accurate and dignifying to other-than-human beings. Refer to all individuals with a gender as he or she (except for transgender humans who prefer different labels), and as living beings rather than things. Use "companion" rather than "pet," or "guardian, protector or friend," instead of "owner or master." I never use those derogatory words. If I don't call them companions, I usually say my critters, and, gosh, I'm certainly not their master. I'm quite sure it's the other way around!

As mentioned, there will be much more from this book appearing in my articles. My plan is to do my final Disclosure article next, which will be the one on food. I don't have enough photos from this totally shitty year to do my annual December 31 Photo Gallery this year.
