Morocco offroad

If you want to ride on rocks, harsh arid land and mountains I guess Morocco would be the place to go, and yep thats what I found. This is definitely a hard barren place and the country is all made upon rock. I arrived by plane into the town of Ozauzazite at 2:30 am and met my guide who was going to take me on my tour. I wanted to travel by myself on this trip as I love to take photos and wanted the opportunity to stop were ever whenever I wanted and take photos without holding up a group. The experience of getting out of Casablanca to Ozauzazite was something out of a circus and arriving in a strange place in the early hours of the morning kept my guard up a little, and traveling for over 22 hours to get to this desert town I was eager to get my head onto a pillow and get some sleep. My guide informed me that a tour group of girls had just had an accident and had been hurled out of a car with no safety belts on and were in a very bad way staying at their house waiting for a plane to arrive to take them back to Holland. One of the girls was too beaten up and had to stay in hospital with 6 broken ribs and a punctured lung, the other 2 girls at the house had a broken foot, broken back and shoulder and various cuts and grazers to the face and other parts of the body. Welcome to Morocco! It certainly was a wake up call in how dangerous this region is and with my 8 day trip off road on dirt bikes certainly made me rethink my safety. I got to sleep at 3:30 am and was a wake again at 6 am, I had breakfast with the girls and we then carried them on stretchers to the ambulance to take them to the airport to be flown out, I think their travel insurance company were eager to get them home and away from the local medical "state of Morocco"!. By 10 am we were off on day 1, I was riding a Yamaha TTR600 and my guide was riding a KTM 950 Super Enduro, I had the option of getting a KTM 630 but as I was filming on the bike, the Yamaha gave less vibration for the camera, I was using a GoPro HD camera mounted to my chest, this is a great camera and is full HD, even though other parts of my male anatomy wanted the KTM (mustang) my safe brain intelligence suggested I should have the Yamaha!. We were off, we first rode to the foot hills of the High Atlas mountains, we crossed over flat desert type terrain and we rode on rock type roads in the mountains, occasionally we would go of the track and head up and over hills and also a lot of riding up dried river beds and also wet river beds, I enjoyed getting wet in the streams while riding as this cooled me down a little. The terrain is epic in Morocco, at some stages you feel you are riding in the Grand canyon, and traveling between 60 and 100 km's,took on a fast adventurist and thrilling ride the lack of people and cars around meant we could open the throttle a little and experience what its like to do Dakar style racing!!!. We spent a couple of days traveling to the dunes on the edge of the Sahara desert, to get there we rode for 8 hours in 47 degrees C,the amount of water I had- would be in the gallons AND I didn't expel any liquid at all the whole day, the body really needs the fluid in these conditions, I had a camel pack on my back and I was drinking hot water from it all day, I would drink litres in one session and still be thirsty, in this dry heat and the type of clothes I wore while riding I didn't sweat much either, I guess when I get back home in 2 weeks i'll be sitting alot on the toilet!!!.We rode over sand dunes in the evening as it was a bit cooler to ride in. It was a different way of riding in the sand, with deflated tires we would ride over the dunes at about 40 k's p/hr to keep the momentum going so we wouldn't get bogged down. Also a technique you need to have is to slow down at the top of the dune as you can't judge the other side, I found this out fast as I cart wheeled down one slope after I went over too fast. Another moment was when I was climbing one dune and released almost at the top that I was riding over Erg Chebbi, the highest sand dune in Morocco with a height of 300 meters I realized that this girl was to epic to go over, so I freaked out and rode off to the side, the video footage of this is hilarious as all you can hear is me freaking out whoa whoa whoaaaaa!!!! might have to put it up on you tube for a laugh. Lines on the horizon and thats about it, just flat hot dry land, we would cruise across these parts sitting on 100ks/p/hr awesome riding occasionally standing up to carry the bike over the occasional ditch, if its a deep ditch or hole the bike at this speed tends to glide over. I loved the ride through the mountains, the terrain changed constantly, some hard tracks than others, we would venture up rivers with no tracks and you would see the odd Moroccan Berber riding his horse or donkey somewhere in no-mans land, what were they doing out here! surely I thought if they just moved twenty kilometers that way there is a oasis with palm trees and spring water to wash in. I guess the view up in the rock house in the side of the mountain with the dirt is better. I certainly shaw a lot on this trip, the way people live, the way animals were treated and also the harshness of the land and what religion and culture can do to shape a land, its certainly different to Australia from were I am from. The last day of riding became the biggest day of the week, we weaved our way around mountain after mountain, one track was very rocky and demanding on the body, lots of technical riding around a road that was very busted up, we got to a village in the middle of nowhere, beautiful, surrounded by green lush fields, it was picturesque, I was told it has been used for film shoots in the past, and I can see why. We headed on the track around the back of the mountain and came across a slip that had taking the road out, a huge boulder had also dropped right in the middle of the once was track and the edge was a good few hundred meters straight down, we might of got the bikes around, maybe with ropes but the support vehicle had no hope of making it through, we had to go back and again over that darn rocky track, o' my arms were feeling today. So we headed back the way we came, all two hours of back tracking, at one stage I lost my guide (he goes ahead a bit!!!) it really concerned me as I was catching a flight in the morning at 5:30 am (why such crazy hours!)and I knew we were no where near home, after 30 mins of riding in whatever direction looked right at the time,I came across Peter resting under a Olive tree,phew saved!, these trees are hundreds of years old and there are thousands of them all perfectly spaced throughout the Atlas Mountains. By evening the sun was fading and rain set in as we rode over the mountains still, there came a time were I could not see in front of me, the light on front of the bike gave me only a few feet in front me, it didn't even reach the roads surface, I couldn't go on and Peter was too far ahead for me to stick close to to see where to go, I had to wait for the support vehicle to catch up and then it could guide me down the mountain with its high beam lights. This worked the vehicle caught up to me and stayed on my back wheel for the next few hours, big day, we finished our trip into Qzauzazite at about 10pm that night, we stopped and had dinner in town then unloaded washed the dirt off my gear, as I know it want get through customs in the state its in, I collapsed at about 1 am, the flight out left at 5:30 am so was up again at 4, to sort out damp washing and motorcycle gear. Goodbye Morocco. This ride is one of the most epic things I have done and experienced, at the time I'm holding on and steering the bike down unknown tracks and paths that lead us into the unknown, but we hold on and we go forward, we know its dangerous, but we don't think of the consequences of coming off and doing injury. Each year I go and each year I come back, the experience of traveling over these grandiose landscapes is absolutely full filling and satisfying. What a great World we live in.

On February 28, 2010 MC's Myka Nyne, Jupiter, P.E.A.C.E, and Aceyalone, along with DJ Killu Grand, got together for a "freestyle" at the Annual KPLtv House Party. The mics were live as the group demonstrated why their the original West Coast rap intelligentsia. Nurtured by the Goodlife Cafe's open mic Thursdays, this band of emcees went on to influence the entire hip-hop world with their 1993 release, Inner City Griots; considered by many to be among the best albums of the 90's. Recently reunited, the group (like us) is serving notice to MCs everywhere to step their bars up.

From selling over 100 million singles and in excess of 50 million albums as a performer and songwriter with 80’s super group Culture Club, and as a solo artist, to maintaining his position as one of the world's most successful and in-demand international DJs. George’s list of achievements is unparalleled in dance circles, having to-date been a national newspaper columnist for the Daily Express, author of two bestselling autobiographies, been the co-producer, songwriter and on-stage star of the award-winning musical 'Taboo' on both New York’s Broadway and London's West End, creator of his own B-Rude fashion label with outlets in New York, Los Angeles, London, as well as still maintaining an elite membership to the worlds designer fashion hierarchy – DJing regularly at post catwalk shows such as Versace, Phillip Treacy and more recently Hugo Boss. We didn't even get to George making it into the Top 50 of the BBC's 100 Greatest Britons of all time, as well as being photographed by everyone from Richard Avedon to Lord Snowdon to Steve Meisel. All of which leading to his daring style, musical talent and unique persona attracting famous fans such as Andy Warhol and Keith Haring. A DJ since the late 70’s, Boy George has had a long and successful career associated with house music stemming from early acid house and Chicago grooves in the 80’s, through to electro and tech house in the 90’s and 00’s. This lengthy association with the electronic music scene led to him playing at some of world’s most iconic venues such as the Manchester’s legendary The Haçienda, Shelleys in Stoke and Paul Oakenfold’s Spectrum at Heaven in London. And ever since George has maintained a constant touring schedule, notching up hundreds of thousands of air miles and taking in destinations from the snow capped mountains of Vancouver to the golden sun kissed sands of Bondi beach. Ever the consummate superstar DJ, his travels have seen him pack out events in over 70 countries around the world, from super-brands in Godskitchen, Cream, Manumission and Spundae to global powerhouse venues like Space in Ibiza, Ministry of Sound in London, Zouk in Singapore and Guvernment in Toronto. Additionally his name has been a prominent figure at many of the world’s leading festival including Homelands, BigGayOut and V Festival. In 2010, George was invited to host and DJ at the DJ Magazine Top100 Awards ceremony at Ministry of Sound. The roadblock event saw Boy George alongside a bulging line up of heavyweight spinners in Deadmau5, Afrojack, Fedde Le Grand, and World #1 DJ Armin van Buuren. A standout producer in his own right with tracks such as ‘Generations of Love’ and ‘When Will You Learn’, his productions over the years have been released under imprints such as Ministry of Sound, Sony, GU Music, Virgin, Polystar, Decode, Universal, Subliminal, EMI and featured on compilations as varied as Global Underground and Bedrock to Chill Out Ibiza and Clubbers Guide. His impressive list of collaborations stands equally tall with George having worked with dance heavyweights such as Erick Morillo, Jeremy Healy, Deep Dish, Rui Da Silva, Afrika Bambaataa, Hi-Gate, Groove Armada, Adamski and Faithless. Whilst his music has been remixed by everybody from Tom Stephan and Holy Ghost to Hervé and Congorock. Recent times have seen George unveil a bed of new studio releases in ‘Amazing Grace’ and latest single ‘Sunshine into my life’ featuring lead vocals from Charlene Hector of Basement Jaxx fame. As well as his own projects, George has spent much of the past year collaborating with a number of other artists that include Mark Ronson, Andrew Wyatt (Miike Snow), Glide & Swerve, Skin and Harry Choo Choo Romero. Looking forward, 2011 marks a new musical era for George with the launch of VG Records with fellow tour DJ Marc Vedo.

Although in recent years (in the UK at least), the media spotlight has fallen too much on George's iconic media status and not enough on an ever-expanding and prolific musical output, his presence in the music industry still remains an ever-present series of headline making stories with notable publications such as DJ Magazine, NME, Q Magazine, The Guardian, New York Times, and Mumbai Mirror all following his career with great zeal.

7. "Medicinal Music" and the 528LOVERevolution by Dr. Leonard Horowitz

The Music Industry Evolves with Artists Re-tuning and Recording in the Newly Discovered “LOVE Frequency” Los Angeles, CA — A revolution in the music industry is expanding globally fueled by recording artists convinced that A=444Hz “alternate tuning” spurs creativity and more harmony among band members and audiences. When the Western World’s music was “standardized” in the late 1930s following Rockefeller Foundation recommendations to the British Standards Institute, a newly discovered “frequency of love” was squelched from performances. What is this “good vibration of love” that recording artists are en-masse “tuning up” to? Seeding A Revolution For the Love of Music In 1998, Harvard-trained public health author and filmmaker, Dr. Leonard G. Horowitz, began advancing a number of reasons why music makers should “tune up” four cycles-per-second above the “standard (A=440Hz) tuning.” Among those reasons is the “Power of Love” in music synchronizes your heart and nature’s “C” note that was set by God, or the “Master Composer and Conductor of the Universe,” at 528Hz, according to new discoveries. “Tuning to A=444Hz generates C=528Hz,” explains Dr. Horowitz in his 17th book--The Book of 528: Prosperity Key of LOVE, (Medical Veritas International, 2012). “The pure tone of ‘LOVE/528’ is arguably the most powerful and beneficial force in the universe, mathematically proven to be central to creation—to biology, organic chemistry, physics, electro-genetics, and simply that warm-fuzzy feeling you get in your heart when in love.” The 528 frequency generates more ”ecstatic listening,” as it is called in musicology; and more “frisson”—those tingly sensations in your body causing goose-bumps on your skin associated with euphoria and a general feeling of well-being or ecstasy when listening to your favorite music. Dr. Horowitz’s discoveries, since publishing the frequencies of the original Solfeggio musical scale in Healing Codes for the Biological Apocalypse (HealthyWorldStore.com) in 1998, have merged the creative arts and sciences with the “Power of LOVE,” increasingly influencing the music industry and what he christened the “528LOVERevolution.” His insights and recommendations for musicians are spreading like wildfire across the Internet and recording world, with studio engineers and artists integrating and applying the intelligence, and millions of people enjoying the results. Virtually unheard of ten years ago, a Google search on “528Hz” today generates nearly a quarter-million “hits.” 528 music enthusiasts on YouTube have gathered millions of devotees. Most of this popularity sources from Horowitz’s discoveries. Artists in all genres have been drawn to his work, his recommendation of A=444Hz as an alternative tuning, because most “spiritually sensitive” performers immediately “feel” the difference in their hearts caused by the “good vibration” of “LOVE/528.” Most seasoned artists credit their hearts as the source of their creative inspirations. An energy vortex in this area of the body, called the central “love chakra” in Oriental medicine, traditionally colored greenish-yellow, reflects the center of every rainbow. This is 528nm, Horowitz’s studies revealed. The Science of Making “Miraculous Medicinal Music” with LOVE/528 Acoustics. Like a radio wave or channel carrying a specific frequency, the heart of the sun, in fact the heart of the universe, transmits 528nm of light and 528Hz frequency of sound, according to mathematicians. Physicists have proved this “good vibration” of 528 resonates the heart of sacred geometry and physical reality. Musical performers and audiences can “phase lock” into this “sweet spot,” that produces a most powerful harmonious, even healing, most loving natural vibration, and also spurs creative inspiration. In fact, 528Hz—the “C” pitch when artists tune to A=444Hz, is the “MI” note in the original Solfeggio musical scale. According to classical musicians and mystery-school mathematicians, this “miracle tone” was believed to generate miracles. Among the scholars teaching this theory was Aristotle--the founder of modern science--whose pioneering book Physics, ascribed physical reality to LOVE generated musically-mathematically. Horowitz assembled this information in collaboration with a multi-disciplinary team of experts that included mathematicians, physicists, biochemists, musicologists, and acoustic scientists. They concluded that a musical-mathematical matrix broadcasts the universe into existence every nano-instant. They further assert that this know-how can be used best by musicians, like God’s creative technology, to help restore biology that has been damaged chemically or genetically. Music-Makers Throng to Record in 528 Last year, Billboard Magazine reported that ASCAP Award winner, multiple Grammy Award nominee, Ameriee, produced an album--Cymatica, Vol 1—in 528Hz frequency to broadcast genetic healing. Her favor of that frequency was shared by John Lennon, who recorded several of his epic tracks in 528Hz including Imagine, #9 Dream, and Mind Games. And it is rumored that Lennon discussed the “LOVE frequency” with the master of “simple love songs,” Paul McCartney, as evidenced by the unique mid-Band on the Run transition into 528Hz—“When the rain exploded with a mighty crash as we fell into the sun” is performed in 528. Curiously, both the sun and rain resonate in 528Hz, according to Horowitz’s review of science. Multiple Grammy Award-winning classical composer Howard Prince was among the earliest musicians to integrate Horowitz’s teachings. He wrote, “Enjoy this journey and exploration through Dr. Horowiz’s associations and heart’s inspiration; . . . use this knowledge to become your unique manifestation of God’s Truth.” Another artist doing just that is “The Jimi Hendrix of New Age Music,” Scott Huckabay, who recorded six albums during the past few years in 528Hz, and now performs exclusively using the C=528/A=444Hz tuning. Seriously, 528Hz has taken the “New Age” market by storm, with sound healing award-winners Jonathan Goldman and Steven Halpern producing albums in the “frequency of LOVE.” Goldman’s Holy Harmony CD, inspired by Horowitz and his co-author, Dr. Joseph Puleo, became a best-seller in the New Age genre. Keyboard players seem to be the most resistant, until they touch a synthesizer that has been “tuned up.” And piano players get jealous because their instruments are harder to “tune up,” although that didn’t stop John Lennon from recording Imagine, nor Daniel Kohler of Naples, Florida. Kohler, a piano manufacturer and tuning expert has remade a number of piano’s to accommodate the added stress on strings. “Wooden bridges warp from tighter strings,” he warns, “but not pianos made with granite bridges.” “The sustains we get with granite piano bridges are unparalleled,” says Kohler, since becoming aware of Dr. Horowitz’s research. “My experiments with A=444Hz tuning, and compositions played in C=528Hz, have generated amazing results inlcuding healing miracles.” Religious Music-Makers Unite in LOVE/528 Religious music makers are also retuning their instruments, especially since 528ChristianRadio.com was launched by the non-profit Medical Veritas International, stewarded by Horowitz and journalist, Sherri Kane. The station plays 24/7 by donation, and is among several new stations in their 528RadioNetwork. “We’ve heard from several church groups and choirs conducting services in LOVE/528,” Kane reported. “A friend of ours is an electrician and church musician who turned his group on to the frequency most supportive to Judeo-Christian theology. Jesus is all about LOVE, and 528 is believed to be the “key to the House of David.” The old and new testaments declare that this key “opens doors that no man can close, and closes doors that no man can open.” (Isaiah 22:22 and Rev. 3:6-8). Music being the “Universal Language,” with concerts conducted to promote peace, many musicians are praying that this key opens ‘doors’ to people’s loving hearts, bringing humanity into harmony with this acoustic technology to co-create better life on earth. In Judaism, the “Day of Atonement” is the holiest day of the year. Jewish people meditate and pray for Divine communion with rituals that Horowitz says relates spiritually to the energy of LOVE/528. “The word atonement is a clue,” he explains. “A-tone-meant to be played to inscribe you into “the Book of Life;” or grant you ‘At-One-Meant’--embodying the truth that we are all One--connected metaphysically through God’s ‘Universal Language:’ The Music of LOVE in creation. This is why Levi priests perform musically on their holiest days. Nature Makes Music in the Key of Love, Why Don’t You? The Book of 528: Prosperity Key of LOVE heralds many amazing discoveries now changing the music and natural healing industries. For instance, the air you breathe is infused with LOVE/528 because the sun outputs 528nm/528Hz vibrating electrons. These strike plants producing oxygen from pure sunshine and chlorophyll--the greenish-yellow pigment of grass and leaves. The chlorophyll molecule also owes its sacred geometry and organic chemistry to 528Hz frequency, primarily. “That molecule, crucial for life and healing, was selected by green plants to produce the most bio-energy using 528Hz frequency,” explains Horowitz. “And its structure is virtually the same as human blood hemoglobin that carries the breath-of-life, infused with LOVE/528, to every cell in your body. Indeed, without LOVE/528, physicians would not be able to diagnose or treat anything, says Horowitz, since physicists would not be able to measure space or time, and biochemists would not have organic chemistry to study. There would be no circles, pi, Phi or molecular structuring without the sacred geometry of 528Hz frequency. The carbon-6 ring in organic chemistry would cease to exist as it is formed fundamentally from LOVE/528Hz frequency. Grass grows green with LOVE, not envy; and miles are measured in feet, 5280 to be exact, because of this medicinal “music of the light.” All of this proves that nature manifests musically-mathematically. The award-winning doctor reasons: “God is like a Master Conductor and Chief Composer of a Universal Orchestra, constantly broadcasting LOVE songs in the ‘Key of 528’ to sustain and restore everything.” Seasoned artists hear this inner broadcast, and they channel it like radios that transmit and entertain audiences, most creatively. So recording artists are best equipped to lead the 528LOVERevolution, and the planet back to healthy harmony. “The music industry is being compelled to change,” says Horowitz, “because its paradigm is distorted and degenerative. Our overall mission is to co-create world peace, health, freedom, and prosperity in all ways. This is the message, and 528 music is the means.” - end - NOTE TO JOURNALISTS and OTHERS SEEKING MORE DETAILS: For review copies of Dr. Horowitz’s books, please call Sean McDermott at 1-800-336-9266.

Road Back to the Frozen Four (69 minutes)

History [edit]Partridge and his academy The university was founded in 1819 at Norwich by military educator and former superintendent of West Point, Captain Alden B. Partridge. Captain Partridge believed in the "American System of Education," a traditional liberal arts curriculum with instruction in civil engineering and military science. After leaving West Point because of congressional disapproval of his system, he returned to his native state of Vermont to create the American Literary, Scientific and Military Academy. Captain Partridge, in founding his academy, rebelled against the reforms of Sylvanus Thayer to prevent the rise of what he saw as the greatest threat to the security of the young republic: a professional officer class. He believed that a well-trained militia was an urgent necessity and developed the American system around that idea. His academy became the inspiration for a number of military colleges throughout the nation, including both the Virginia Military Institute and The Citadel, and later the land grant colleges created through the Morrill Act of 1862.[4] Partridge's educational beliefs were considered radical at the time, and this led to his conflicting views with the federal government while he was the superintendent of West Point. Upon creation of his own school, he immediately incorporated classes of agriculture and modern languages in addition to the sciences, liberal arts, and various military subjects. Field exercises, for which Partridge borrowed cannon and muskets from the federal and state governments, supplemented classroom instruction and added an element of realism to the college’s program of well-rounded military education. Partridge founded six other military institutions during his quest to reform the fledgling United States military. They were the Virginia Literary, Scientific and Military Academy at Portsmouth, Virginia (1839–1846), Pennsylvania Literary, Scientific, and Military Academy at Bristol, Pennsylvania (1842–1845), Pennsylvania Military Institute at Harrisburg, Pennsylvania (1845–1848), Wilmington Literary, Scientific and Military Academy at Wilmington, Delaware (1846–1848), the Scientific and Military Collegiate Institute at Reading, Pennsylvania (1850–1854), Gymnasium and Military Institute at Pembroke, New Hampshire (1850–1853) and the National Scientific and Military Academy at Brandywine Springs, Delaware (1853).[5] [edit]Fire and hardship: Norwich in the 19th century In 1825 the academy moved to Middletown, Connecticut, to provide better naval training to the school's growing corps of cadets. In 1829, the state of Connecticut declined to grant Captain Partridge a charter and he moved the school back to Norwich (the Middletown campus became Wesleyan University in 1831). Beginning in 1826, the college offered the first program of courses in civil engineering in the US. In 1834 Vermont granted a charter and recognized the institution as Norwich University. During the 1856 academic year, the first chapter of the Theta Chi Fraternity was founded by cadets Frederick Norton Freeman and Arthur Chase. With the beginning of the Civil War in 1861, Norwich cadets served as instructors of the state militias throughout the Northeast and the entire class of 1862 enlisted upon its graduation. Norwich turned out hundreds of officers and soldiers who served with the federal armies in the American Civil War, including four recipients of the Medal of Honor. One graduate led a corps, seven more headed divisions, 21 commanded brigades, 38 led regiments, and various alumni served in 131 different regimental organizations. In addition, these men were eyewitnesses to some of the war's most dramatic events, including the bloodiest day of the conflict at Antietam, the attack up Marye's Heights at Fredericksburg, and the repulse of Pickett's Charge at Gettysburg. Seven hundred and fifty Norwich men served in the Civil War, of whom sixty fought for the Confederacy.[6] Because of the university's participation in the struggle, the number of students dwindled to seven in the class of 1864 alone. The Confederate raid on St. Albans, Vermont precipitated fear that Newport, Vermont was an imminent target. The corps quickly boarded an express train for Newport, the same day, October 19, 1864, to the great relief of the inhabitants. After a catastrophic fire in 1866 which devastated the entire campus, the town of Northfield welcomed the struggling school. The Civil War, the fire, and the uncertainty regarding the continuation of the University seriously lowered the attendance, and the school opened in the fall of 1866 with only 19 students. The 1870s and 1880s saw many financially turbulent times for the institution and the renaming of the school to Lewis College in 1880. In 1881 the student body was reduced to only a dozen men. Later, by 1884, the Vermont Legislature had the name of the school changed back to Norwich. In 1898 the university was designated as the Military College of the State of Vermont. [edit]War and expansion: Norwich in the 20th century As part of the Vermont National Guard, the school's Corps of Cadets was mobilized as a squadron of cavalry in the First Vermont Regiment to assist in General John J. Pershing's Mexican Expedition. This greatly disrupted the academic year and in 1916 the War Department designated Norwich as the first site for a Senior ROTC cavalry unit; also in 1916, the first African-American, Harold "Doc" Martin (NU 1920), matriculated. Classes graduated early for both the First and Second World Wars and many Norwich-made officers saw service in all theaters of both conflicts. Professional education offered at Norwich also changed and adapted with the advance of technology. Military flight training began in 1939 and from 1946 to 1947, horse cavalry was completely phased out in favor of armored cavalry. Graduates returning from European and Pacific fields of battle found a university very different from the one they had left behind. From the late 1940s to the 1960s, Norwich was greatly expanded and added a number of new opportunities. In 1947, the Army Department created a new program uniquely suited to Vermont's harsh climate: a mountain and cold weather warfare unit. Air Force and Navy ROTC programs were established in 1972 and 1984 respectively. During the 1974 school year, the university admitted women into the Corps of Cadets, two years before the federal service academies. Although unpopular at the time, Norwich University began a social trend that would move the country closer in gender equality. The 1972 merger and 1993 integration with Vermont College added two groups to "the Hill," women and civilian students. Norwich later sold its Vermont College campus and non-traditional degree programs to the Union Institute and University in 2001.[7] Vermont College's arts programs were spun off as the once again independent Vermont College of Fine Arts in 2008. [edit]Hazing In the nineteenth century, hazing of undergraduates by upper classmen was normal in all military schools and many non-military ones as well. Hazing diminished in the early 20th century. By the late 20th century, it became not only counter to university rules but illegal as well. Nevertheless, there have been several instances of hazing in 1990, 1995.[8] [edit]Campus [edit]Academic buildings [edit]Ainsworth Hall In 1910 Ainsworth Hall was constructed for the United States Weather Bureau as its central Vermont station. Later returned to the university in 1948, it served as the Administrative Headquarters of the campus. By 1955, growth of the University forced the relocation of the Administration back up the hill to Dewey Hall. When also in 1955 construction began on Webb Hall to the immediate west of the building, the infirmary moved into the now empty structure. Due to expansion of the university in the 1960s and 1970s the building was converted into the home of the Division of Social Sciences. The building is named for Mrs. Laura Ainsworth, widow of Captain James E. Ainsworth (NU 1853), who in 1915 worked to bring an infirmary to campus. [edit]Chaplin Hall Chaplin Hall, originally Carnegie Hall, was built in 1907. The School of Architecture & Art is located there. Paid for by Andrew Carnegie, the building served as the university's library until 1993 with the construction of Kreitzberg Library. When the library was renovated in 1952, from the contributions of trustee Henry P. Chaplin, it was rededicated as the Henry Prescott Chaplin Memorial Library. Until 1941 and the addition of Partridge Hall to the growing campus, Chaplin Hall also provided the classrooms and offices for the Department of Electrical Engineering. [edit]Communications Building This building, on the site of the first building in Center Northfield, contains the offices and classrooms of the Communications Department. The offices for the Guidon and the studios for both the university's radio station WNUB-FM are also located in this building. The building was purchased by the university in 1973 and restored in 1988. [edit]Dewey Hall Named for Admiral of the Navy George Dewey (NU 1852-1854), and completed in 1902, Dewey Hall is one of the oldest buildings in the Northfield campus. It was originally two stories high with the lower floor occupied by offices of the university's administration, the library and museum. Office space for trustees and faculty, a chapel with a seating of five hundred and the United States Weather Bureau were located on the second floor. With the departure of the Weather Bureau in 1909 and the completion of the then new Carnegie Library in 1907 the Hall was primarily used by the Military Department. In October 1925 a fire gutted the building which led to its reconstruction as a three story structure. Dewey Hall currently houses the Division of Business & Management and a computer lab. [edit]Hollis House Hollis House is today the location of a number of classrooms and offices of the Division of Humanities. Built in 1852, the building was until 1909 the house of a number of prominent residents of Northfield. When sold that year to the university, it became part of the US Weather Bureau's station collocated on campus. The building was later named for David B. "Dixie" Hollis (NU 1922) who upon his death in 1993 gave what was then the largest donation in the university's history: $7 million. [edit]Engineering, Math and Science Complex The Engineering, Math and Science Complex houses the David Crawford School of Engineering as well as the departments of Geology, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Mathematics and Sports Medicine. Currently under construction is an addition of Nursing in the bottom floor of the building. The complex is composed of six buildings: Juckett, Partridge and Tompkins Halls; the Science Building, Bartolleto Hall and the Cabot Annex. The complex was completed in 1997 and replaced a previous set of 1940s- and 1950s-era facilities. The Engineering, Math and Science Complex also contains the university's Computer Services office and the majority of the campus' independent computer labs. [edit]Kreitzberg Library Kreitzberg Library is named in recognition of Barbara and Chairman of the Board of Trustees Fred Kreitzberg (NU 1957).[9] The library has a catalogue of more than 240,000 books, about 45,000 electronic journals, and a collection of federal government publications. The Norwich University Archives and Special Collections houses rare books and unique source materials relating to military history, the history of Vermont, and the history of the university. The 58,000-square-foot (5,400 m2) library was designed by Perry, Dean, Rogers & Partners and was completed in 1993 at a cost of $8.1 million. Kreitzberg Library [edit]Webb Hall Webb Hall was completed in 1960 and originally housed the English, Modern Languages, Social Sciences, Business Administration and the Psychology and Education departments. Currently, the Division of Humanities, Nursing Department and Education program are located in this building. Twenty one classrooms, three seminar rooms and a computer lab are available. Dole Auditorium, which can seat over four hundred people, is also located in Webb Hall. The building is named after J. Watson Webb, a Norwich trustee and world class polo player. The auditorium honors Charles Dole (NU 1869), who served in his career at the university as an instructor in Mathematics and Latin, a professor of history and rhetoric, the commandant of cadets and acting president of the university from 1895 to 1896. [edit]Residence halls and Cadet barracks Hawkins Hall — Named for General Hawkins, a colonel in the Civil War and later New York State Congressman. Built in 1940 and renovated in 1994 and again in 2008 Dodge Hall — Named for Major General Grenville M. Dodge, a leader in the construction of the Transcontinental Railroad and US Congressman. It is the only dorm to house both Corps of Cadets and Traditional students. Originally named Cabot Hall, it was built in 1937 and renovated in 1998 Patterson Hall — Named for a 1909 graduate in Civil Engineering and a trustee. Built in 1958. Goodyear Hall — Named for Major General A. Conger Goodyear, a trustee and founder of the Museum of Modern Art. Built in 1955 and renovated in 1999 Wilson Hall — Named for a Judge and Governor of Vermont, Stanley Calef Wilson. Alumni Hall — First housing-only hall at the Northfield campus, named for the significant alumnus contributions that allowed for its construction. Built in 1905 and renovated in 2005 Ransom Hall — Named after Colonel Truman B. Ransom, the second president of the University who was killed leading the assault on Chapultepec during the Mexican-American War. Built in 1957 Gerard Hall — Named after industrialist and philanthropist Jacques A. Gerard who became a trustee in 1959. Built in 1962, and renovated in 2010. Crawford Hall — Named after David C. Crawford (1952) and after whom the School of Engineering is also named, it is the first residence hall to not be on the Upper Parade Ground and is reserved for traditional students. Built in 1988 South Hall — The newest residence hall, it is the second dorm to be located off of the Upper Parade Ground and is reserved for traditional students. Built in 2009, it opened for the 2009/2010 School Year [edit]Athletic buildings Andrews Hall Andrews Hall, built in 1980, houses the Department of Athletics. In addition, it has basketball and racquetball courts and the equipment and athletic training rooms for the university's varsity and intramural teams. The Athletic Hall of Fame is also located in Andrews Hall. The facility honors trustee Paul R. Andrews (NU 1930). Kreitzberg Arena Kreitzberg Arena is home to the men’s and women’s varsity ice hockey teams, as well as the school’s club team. Kreitzberg thumb Plumley Armory The armory, built in 1928, is named to honor a notable 1896 graduate of the university, Charles A. Plumley. Plumley served as the president of the university from 1930 to 1934 when he was elected to Congress as Vermont's sole representative from 1934 to 1951. The main floor of the building provides seating space for 4,000 in an area as large as three basketball courts. There is an elevated running track as well as locker rooms, training rooms, and Navy ROTC offices in the basement. Connected to the armory is Goodyear Pool. Built in 1962, the pool is a 25 x 14 yard 5 lane facility that is open to all university members. Plumley Armory Sabine Field Dedicated in 1921, Sabine Field is currently home to the university football and cross country teams. Sabine field is slated for a complete renovation. The renovation will include the installation of all-weather turf, stadium lighting, new bleachers, and a state-of-the-art press box. It is designed so that lacrosse, soccer, and rugby will also be able to use the field. Sabine Field Arial Overview Main article: Sabine Field Shapiro Field House Shapiro Field House, built in 1987 and named for trustee Jacob Shapiro (NU 1936), houses a multipurpose arena that has a 200-meter indoor running track, four tennis courts, and a climbing wall. It is also used for morning PT (Physical Training), athletic practices, Commencement, concerts and other university functions. [edit]Other buildings The Harmon Memorial The Harmon Memorial is a tribute to Major General Ernest Harmon, who attended Norwich University from 1912 to 1913 and was later president from 1950 to 1968. Recorded on the memorial, by year of death, are the names of alumni, faculty, staff, and friends of Norwich University that have made a "significant contribution" to the university. Harmon Hall & Wise Campus Center Harmon Hall opened in 1955 and later enlarged in 1958. Since then, it has served as the focal point for student life and activities. The campus mess hall, bookstore, post office, and The Mill (a snack bar open to upperclassmen and civilian freshmen) are located on the lower two floors. The Foreign Student Office, Student Activities, Yearbook Office, Music Program offices, a game room, and a lounge were located on the top floor. This floor originally housed the departments of English, History, and Modern Languages until they were moved to Webb Hall in 1960. Harmon Hall was renovated in 2007. The addition onto Harmon Hall is named the Wise Campus Center. Wcc Jackman Hall Norwich University moved to Northfield from Norwich, Vermont, in 1866 when the South Barracks at the older location were destroyed by fire. Old Jackman Hall was the first building to be constructed at the new central Vermont site. The building was erected in 1868, and named Jackman Hall in 1907 to honor Brigadier General Alonzo Jackman (NU 1836) a faculty member, creator of the trans-Atlantic telegraph cable system and commander of the Vermont Brigade during the Civil War. From its construction till 1905 the building served as housing for cadets. In the mid-1950s Jackman Hall was extensively remodeled and modernized, however, it became apparent that the almost century-old barracks were too costly to maintain. It was decided that rather than pay for near continual upkeep to build a new hall on the same site. As many newer barracks had been built since its original construction it was decided that the new Jackman Hall would serve as the primary administration building. Currently the Army and Air Force ROTC departments are housed in Jackman, as well. White Chapel Constructed by a gift from Eugene L. White (NU 1914), a trustee, the chapel was completed in 1941. Originally designed as a multi-purpose building, then White Hall has served as a mess hall with a dining room, lunch room, kitchen, a college store and a recreational room. White Hall was converted to the university's first single-purpose chapel after Harmon Hall was opened in 1955. There are two bronze plaques on the walls that honor the Norwich war dead. Weekly services include Catholic Mass on Wednesday and Sunday, non-denominational service on Sunday, and Islamic prayer on Friday. Sullivan Museum and History Center One of the newer buildings on the campus, the Sullivan Museum was opened January 22, 2007. The building is named after General Gordon R. Sullivan (ret.), Norwich class of 1959 and former U.S. Army Chief of Staff. The Sullivan Museum houses state of the art conservation, storage, and display facilities for the wide variety of Norwich University artifacts and memorabilia. Items currently displayed cover a wide spectrum of Norwich history, including uniforms worn by Alden Partridge and Alonzo Jackman to pieces from more recent history. Sullivan Museum [edit]Students and organization The university has approximately a total of 3,400 students, 2,100 undergraduate students/ 1300 graduate students, 112 full-time faculty (approximately 80% hold a doctorate), and a fluctuating number of adjunct professors. The student/faculty ratio is 14:1 and a male/female ratio is 7:1. The freshman retention rate is 80%. The student body comprises students from over 45 different states and 20 countries. As of 2011, 72.9 percent of full-time undergraduates receive some kind of need-based financial aid and the average need-based scholarship or grant award is $18,150. The university offers a number of student services including nonremedial tutoring, placement service, health service, and health insurance. Norwich University also offers campus safety and security services like 24-hour foot and vehicle patrols, 24-hour emergency telephones, and lighted pathways/sidewalks. 42% of students have cars on campus and 83% of students live on campus. Alcohol is not permitted for students of legal age at Norwich University with exception of Partridge’s Pub. More than 90% are involved in activities outside the classroom. Norwich University has two very different on-campus resident programs: the Corps of Cadets and the traditional student body. [edit]Corps of Cadets Cadet officers and non-commissioned officers command the Corps of Cadets. As leaders, they are responsible for the day-to-day administration, operation, training and discipline of the Corps. Norwich is one of several Senior Military Colleges in the country whose cadets are entrusted with that authority. The Corps is structured as a regiment commanded by a Cadet Colonel (C/COL) with five battalions each commanded by a Cadet Lieutenant Colonel (C/LTC). 1st, 2nd, and Provisional Battalions are composed of Companies of upperclassmen commanded by a Cadet Captain with two platoons per Company. 3rd and 4th Battalion are the freshman training battalions and are composed of 3 Companies of 3 platoons each. This structure was put in place for the 2009-2010 school year, replacing the more traditional original company system. Prior to the 2009-2010 school year companies consisted of one upperclassmen platoon and one freshmen platoon. Each platoon consisted of three squads each led by a cadet Staff Sergeant. Interaction between the upper-class cadets and freshmen cadets was common, leading to[clarification needed] original companies. An Original Company is the company that a cadet belongs to as a freshmen. Upper-class cadets who were of an original company their freshman year would guide and mentor the incoming freshman cadets who were in that company. With in the original companies was an unofficial rank structure, which ensured which handled disputes within the companies, as well as enforcing each companies' values. These shadow chains of command ran afoul with the administration of the school,[citation needed] in part leading to the demise of the original company system. The companies in the original company system included, Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, Delta, Echo, Foxtrot, Golf, Hotel, India, Kilo, Band, Drill Company, Cavalry Troop and Artillery. The companies Alpha through Kilo were known as line companies, and were part of Battalions 1,2 and 3. Band, Drill Company, Calvary Troop and Artillery were called provisional companies and placed in Provisional Battalion.[citation needed] New Corps structure: 1st Battalion 2nd Battalion 3rd Battalion 4th Battalion Provisional Battalion Alpha Delta Cadet Training Company 10-1 (CTC 1) Cadet Training Company 10-4 (CTC 4) Regimental Band [10] Bravo Echo Cadet Training Company 10-2 (CTC 2) Cadet Training Company 10-5 (CTC 5) Drill[11] Charlie Foxtrot Cadet Training Company 10-3 (CTC 3) Cadet Training Company 10-6 (CTC 6) Cavalry Troop[12] Artillery[13] Formation march Norwich University Corps of Cadets rank insignia follows West Point with the use of chevrons to show all cadet ranks in lieu of chevrons, disks & lozenges. As of the 2010 academic year, the rank structure has changed. Juniors and seniors are no longer permitted the rank of Sergeant, but rather default to the rank of Private if they hold no responsibilities in the Corps of Cadets. Likewise, sophomores no longer default to the rank of Corporal unless they hold some sort of responsibility. Ranks are as follows: Freshman: Recruit, Private Sophomore: Private, Corporal Junior: Private, Staff Sergeant, Sergeant First Class, Master Sergeant, First Sergeant, Sergeant Major, Command Sergeant Major Senior: Private, Command Sergeant Major, 2nd Lieutenant, 1st Lieutenant, Captain, Major, Lieutenant Colonel, Colonel Special Units The college has several ROTC units that are federally supervised. The Army Reserve Officers' Training Corps (AROTC) detachment contains the Norwich University Rangers,[14] and the Mountain Cold Weather Company. The Rangers are AROTC-specific while the Mountain Cold Weather Company[15] is open to all Corps Cadets. The AFROTC detachment sponsors the Air Force Special Operations Unit. The NROTC detachment sponsors a chapter of the Semper Fidelis Society. [edit]Academics Norwich has 29 majors across six academic divisions with the most popular major being Criminal Justice.[citation needed] [edit]Graduate Program The School of Graduate and Continuing Studies oversees the university's graduate programs. The majority of the graduate programs are conducted on a distance learning platform. The university offers accredited and highly recognized programs in a range of fields including diplomacy, military history, business administration, civil engineering, justice administration, public administration, business continuity, information assurance, nursing, and organizational leadership, plus a certificate in teaching and learning.[16] The School of Graduate Studies became The School of Graduate and Continuing Studies on June 1, 2010.[17] Norwich offers online graduate programs, including a 5-year Master of Architecture program, and, since 2001, a National Security Agency-sponsored Centers of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education.[18] Norwich offers master's degrees in disciplines including diplomacy, military history, business administration, civil engineering, justice administration, public administration, business continuity, information assurance, nursing, and organizational leadership, plus a certificate in teaching and learning.[citation needed] [edit]Athletics Norwich cadet logo Norwich offers 18 varsity sports, 3 club sports and intramurals. The Cadets compete at the NCAA Division III level and are affiliated in one of four conferences, mainly the Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC). There are 18 varsity sports and 3 club sports at Norwich University. The Cadets participate in baseball, basketball, cross country, football, rugby, soccer, lacrosse, and more. In recent years, Norwich teams have been regularly found in the national rankings, won conference titles, and won four national championships in ice hockey. Men's ice hockey is nationally ranked and celebrated its 100th season in 2009-10. The program has won ECAC East hockey championships in the regular season every year from 1998–2008.[19] Won the NCAA Division III title in 2000, 2003 and most recently won the 2010 NCAA Division III title, defeating St. Norbert College 2-1 in double overtime.[20] Coach Mike McShane, who led Norwich University to three NCAA Division III Men’s Ice Hockey National Championships, has been named Men’s Division III Ice Hockey Coach of the Year four times, tying Middlebury’s Coach Bill Beaney for the most such awards.[citation needed] Women's ice hockey is nationally ranked and skated their way to their first Frozen Four bid in 2010 in the NCAA Division III Championship Game. In 2011 they won the programs first NCAA Division III National Title with a win over RIT. Women’s ice hockey coach Mark Bolding became just the third coach in Division III history to win the American Hockey Coaches Association (AHCA) D-III Coach of the Year award in consecutive years (2010-2011).[citation needed] Men's rugby began competition in 1970. The team competes in the Division II of the New England Rugby Football Union (NERFU). After competing as a club team since they began intercollegiate play, in 2008 the program had officially gained varsity status. Women's lacrosse program gained varsity status in 2008.

Highly Suspect - My Name Is Human [Official EOC Video]

Matthew 24:36-44 (CEB) [The Coming of the Human One] “But nobody knows when that day or hour will come, not the heavenly angels and not the Son. Only the Father knows. As it was in the time of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Human One. In those days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day Noah entered the ark. They didn’t know what was happening until the flood came and swept them all away. The coming of the Human One will be like that. At that time there will be two men in the field. One will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding at the mill. One will be taken and the other left. Therefore, stay alert! You don’t know what day the Lord is coming. But you understand that if the head of the house knew at what time the thief would come, he would keep alert and wouldn’t allow the thief to break into his house. Therefore, you also should be prepared, because the Human One will come at a time you don’t know.” #MyNameIsHuman #HighlySuspect #LordRayEl #EOC #RaEl #SonOfGod #MusicVideo ☟PLEASE DONATE☟ Lord RayEl: Ra-El.org/donations.html P.C.

1985 Oct 26th Sahaja Culture USA

1985-1026: Sahaja Culture, New Jersey, Ashram, USA Today I was thinking of talking, telling you about the Sahaja Culture. Now we are formed in dharma, Vishwa Dharma. But it must have a culture. So far in all the religions there is no combination of religion and culture. No religion has. That's why everywhere you find different cultures. Say in India, people who follow Hindu religion have different cultures in different places. They are living in Lucknow, or say in U.P., they have a Muslim culture. More Islamic style. They'll eat in one plate, do all kinds of things which normally a South Indian won't do, and the South Indians have a different culture from Maharashtrians. So even in a religion like Hindu religion where culture is important, very important, we find varieties. So the cultures get influenced by the neighboring cultures or surrounding cultures, and that's how people get lost. When you establish a religion like this, Vishwa Dharma, it's not like any other religion. It's the real religion within us, and this reality comes to us because now we are one with the Spirit. So when we talk of Sahaja Culture, it is the culture of the Spirit. Now what is a culture? First of all let us see what is a culture is. So the culture is the pattern of behavior we have with others. Is a common pattern of behavior we are supposed to have with others. Like in English language, for example, we'll say "Thank you". Even if somebody murders, you may say, "Thank you". Or the person who murders you can say, "Sorry". On the phone one may say, just if they say something you can't hear, "Sorry?" Every time, "Sorry". As if "sorry" is a word so easily to be used. I mean if you are sorry, why are you sorry for that? "Sorry?" On the phone they used to first say, "I beg your pardon?", was sensible; but now I find everybody, A to Z, says, "Sorry?" I mean, it has no meaning, because what are you sorry about? Says "Sorry?" For everything they are sorry. Or we can say in English language, when we speak, "I'm afraid". You see, it's very common, "I'm afraid". What are you afraid of? The whole world is afraid of you. So this is the culture, what we talk of, any culture as such, becomes artificial, is not spontaneous, doesn't come from reality. It has no meaning; sometimes it is pointless, absolutely pointless to stick to certain cultures. So the culture of the Spirit doesn't change. It's universal, and is higher than any other culture. Apart from that it integrates all the essences of all the cultures. So it emanates from the spirit. Now, spirit has two sides. One side which you see, the another you don't see, like the moon. The side you see is outside with other people, other Sahaja Yogis, other people, other societies, which are not yourself, absolutely. The other side you don't see is the relationship with God Almighty, relationship with your Mother. If the other side is not all right, the behavioral side outside could become artificial, could become crooked and not Sahaj. So it's the other way round than any other culture. To know any other culture what do we go? We see how they talk, what is their language, how they speak, how they behave: all the outside things we get. We must know "thank you" if we want to know English language, must know "thank you", "please", all that. But if you want to know the Sahaja culture, you have to know your Mother, and you have to know God Almighty. And the relationship between your Mother and the God Almighty has to be absolutely perfect. Then there's no problem. But that, the relationship, if it is not all right, you cannot have artificial Sahaj culture. That is one thing for sure. Artificial Sahaj culture is not all right. I would say that India has, in its basics, the culture of the spirit, India has; because for traditions and traditions in India, and for ages, people have been seeking the truth. Spiritually they are endowed, because of the saints. They are blessed specially because they have been seekers, not of material things, but of the spirit. Specially in Maharashtra, we should say, because the Kundalini is there always like a magnet. People are attracted because Shri Ganesha being the magnet, attracted towards God and spirit. So they form a pattern, but there is lot of artificiality in that also has grown. We must admit that there is lot, lot of artificiality, falsehood, nonsense that has grown into it, because the religion fell into the hands of, spiritual religion fell into the hands of gross, horrible so-called Brahmins who were not realized souls. So the whole culture has become so nonsensical sometimes that you don't know where to look. But to have the culture, first of all, culture is developed through meditation, by facing yourself. First of all you should face yourself, how you feel about your Mother and about God Almighty. First of all, how much liberty you take of your Mother? How much granted, take for granted your Mother? She's a Mahamaya. Even the first "M" is difficult to understand. So when you start taking liberties, all the time putting your pressure on Her, all the time trying to attract Her attention, Her time, or writing letters eleven pages, all that, is one side. Another side is complete indifference to your Mother. So it is to be known through your heart. You don't have to talk to Me. I know whose heart is pulsating. Perhaps I'm the only person who knows really what you are. You may not be knowing yourself also. I may not say, but I know you in all details, out of which I may say little bit, because I am too gentle to say things. Because again of Sahaj culture. Because of Sahaj culture, I cannot say everything to you on your face. I'm correcting it, trying to correct it, correct it; if not possible, then I say to you. Then in that you have to also see how much worshipful you are. Some people, though they spend more time with Me, remain with Me, want to be with Me, it is only when they feel surrendered, also. So it should not be confused: if somebody is spending more time with Me, you should not condemn yourself for that. It's all right. But how far you are surrendered is the point. Now, if you are surrendered, how do you see the surrendering in a person? You see it has one side and the another is the expression. Say a person who is surrendered doesn't talk much to Me, doesn't talk, he listens, doesn't talk. Common sense, he listens. Even people who are very good, I've seen when I'm talking, they'll put in their own words in between. People who are very good, I should say. So the surrendering is not full. Then the time, they become very conscious of the time. Who has made the time? But the person won't come directly and tell Me, but tell somebody else, "Go and tell Mother, She has to go at this time." I know everything, who tells whom, who goes to whom, who is telling someone, who is time-bound. And then I flout it. I know what time to reach, what is the auspicious time, how it will work out. Surrendering has to be to that point, that you shouldn't worry. I would say Dumahl is one of them who is a very great surrendered fellow. When I went there I was very tired, and he said. "Mother, if You want to rest You can rest." I said, "Yes, I want to rest." So he just left Me alone. I was really very tired because I had a very long journey, and then this and that, and then I went down all the way there. I thought, "I'll lie down, and sleep off. " Of course, as I know that everything has to be done at right time, I just went down. And we had a program of My reception at one place in a village, and they were all waiting for Me there. And I was sleeping; he wouldn't wake Me up. He wouldn't wake Me up. He said, "Everything will be all right. Tell them when Mother will come." So there was sun on, they were all sitting under the tree, sun was scorchingly hot. They were nicely having a nice nap under the tree and all that. All the villagers arrived, everybody arrived, everything worked out. And when I got up it was about five-thirty, then he told Me that, "Mother, I didn't tell You the program." He never tells Me. If I get something written, well and good, but, "You were sleeping, I didn't want to disturb You." "What's the program?" "It was at three o'clock." I said, "Three o'clock. Why didn't you tell Me? Why didn't you wake Me?" He said, "You were awake, I knew You were awake, Mother. It's all right." So we started off at six o'clock. Sun had gone down. By that time they arranged beautiful lights and fireworks and everything, and all the rushing about was finished, they're very well settled. And the people from distant villages had also arrived, and they had organized them so well, and they had a proper time, and are very happy that I came late because sun was not there, so scorchingly hot. By the time we reached about seven o'clock it was night and they illumined the lights, and the diwali like this was put up everywhere, and they got everything, they had sufficient time to do everything. Then Dumahl said, "I knew, Mother, You are awake, and You were managing." If one can understand that, then you will not try to organize Me. You can just tell Me, "We have to leave at this time." But if I don't have to leave, I will not leave whatever you may do. In My own sweet way; you will never find Me obstinate, but I am. Because I know what is right is what is right, and has to be done that way. But otherwise I'm very calm, I am not bothered. I never organize you, I never hurry you, I never do anything that should upset you. Spirit is never upset, never excited, never hurries, and never is what you call that "go-go" business. Like now, we have to go to the airport. You'll find everybody was like an aeroplane - round, round, round, round. What has happened? "Oh, we had to go? We'd.." "We have to go, all right. So what?" The whole thing is, all these excitements and all these things come to us because we are outside. But if you are one with your spirit you're absolutely calm, absolutely calm, "All right, we have to go, all right, we'll reach there. Doesn't matter." The other day we had to go for some shopping, I was trying to buy some saris for Indian ladies. We got lost. I never bothered them at all. They were going round and round, and round and round. And then Danny realized and said, "I think perhaps we had to leave vibrations in all these places." I said, "Correct." And for about two hours I think, we were roaming about. Anybody else would be saying, "What's this? You can't find the place, what's the matter with you?" Calm. We reached the shop at the right time, got everything at the right time, did everything, came back at right time. Everything was first class, nothing went wrong. But anybody in My place, I tell you, that time would have been, "Oh God, this, that." Why are you saving time? For what are you saving time? So we miss the present, and that's one thing spirit never misses. It's always in the present. That's the reality. Now in the West people are very futuristic, extremely futuristic, and their futuristicness sometimes takes them to points, say for example if they have to go by train. So instead of arriving at the right station, they'll go to the station which is further on. And then again they'll arrive at the further on. The train will never reach them. Sort of temperament they have. So one should not plan at all anything like that, that fixes you. But at this moment, if I have to be told that we have to go at this time, is all right, finished now. At this moment I've told, is recorded, finished. All right? So it's gone into the memory. There's nothing to worry about it now. Now, present moment, what are we doing? In a very calm way, witness it. Witness yourself, now, witness yourself. "Where is my mind going?" Now somebody who has to cook must be thinking, "Oh, I have to get this, I have to get that." Once you start saying that "I have to do it", you'll never be able to do it that way. But you said, "All right, just now I'm in meditation." Every moment, "I am in meditation." Everything will walk up to you, even matter, and you'll get the right things at the right place. You'll meet right people at the right place. The other day we were just walking, strolling around. Whom do we find there? Carolyn. She just walked out. There is she, I mean I met her. She said, "Christine is just next door." I said, "Let's go," and you should have seen the joy on her face when she came down, and she saw Me. Beautiful experience for Me and her, she was so happy. Then we went together. So when you have so much tied down with your watch, that means you are not tied down with your spirit. So a Sahaja yogi, if he sees watch, then he's not a Sahaja yogi. But the other side could be that the Sahaja yogis are never in time where they have to be. Very common in England. I reach always first, to open the door. And to clean it also sometimes. Now, to take for granted things, as you say, take for granted, that's not the way Sahaja Yoga is. You have to be alert, alert, absolutely alert. If you are alert, immediately you'll know "I have to go now at this time. I have to do it. I have to get this thing now." If you have to miss something, you are supposed to miss it. That's what it is. So, there's a beautiful thing written down, like they say, "Jai sei rakhahu tase hi rahun" - "The way You keep me, the way I am, will be happy." So, satisfaction towards yourself, your spirit, is important. Because ego will plan out, "Oh, we'll go there, we must get for Mother, say, daisies", we decide. "Must get daisies." You don't find daisies, you're disappointed. Why not? These are all My flowers, whether they are daisies or not, they look so nice. Whatever you get, you get it. That's the thing wanted. You know that, that the Divine is working out everything for you. When you are supposed to get something else, better have it. Even by mistake, if I lay My hand upon some things, like a book or something, immediately I'll open it out and see why this book has come in My attention; why this fellow has come in My attention; why this is happening. And immediately I find that there's some connection, something has to be done, something has to be said, something has to be worked out. So for a person who is imbibed with the culture of spirit, the Sahaj culture, impresses others by his calmness and relaxed attitude. Relaxation never means lethargy, by any chance. It doesn't mean lethargy. Lethargy is against relaxation. A person who is relaxed cannot become lethargic. "Relaxed" means a person who's alert and calm. These two things for human beings is an impossibility, because if they are alert, if they are alert then they're not calm. If they're unhappy, sad, then they think they are very, very calm. So this is one of the things one has to remember, that you have to witness yourself all the time. Not to condemn yourself, but witness. Now I said the word "witness" means "detached". Now what happens with this, when you start condemning yourself, you miss every good point. For example, you have some experience of a sudden height being achieved. All right? At that point you should catch hold of it, hold on to it, keep doing, but don't forget that you may go back, no. And then wait for another higher moment to come, hold on to it. That's how you climb Himalayas. But not that, "Oh Ma. Now it's all right, but what will happen next?" Then you are gone down, because you have to face yourself in the way, knowing what are your powers. You are a spirit now, you are no more an ordinary human being, so you have no business to condemn yourself, or to degrade yourself, or in any way to feel unhappy. No way. Past is past. What happened a moment before is finished. "Now I am going to rise. Now I am going to rise." So a person who has a Sahaja culture is not only spontaneous, but is inspired, is a inspired personality. A person who is of that kind, an inspired visionary, then other people get impressed by such a person that, "See, there's a man who's inspired, who talks in an inspired way, in a way that is something very different from others." Something new he says, new that is nourishing. Such a personality - like the other day, you see, we heard the lectures of so many people, and when the New Zealand Prime Minister was coming C.P. said, "Now let's go back, because we'll have a little tea or something." I said: "No, you listen to this man. He's a realized soul." He said, "Really?" I said, "Yes, you listen to him." First everybody was, "He's sitting in New Zealand, such a little titwit of a country, what is he going to speak?" You see, they were moving about, making a... Within two minutes he captured everybody's attention, you see, and he was bubbling with everything, so beautifully, and he spoke all the points so much different, and so much new and so much better. C.P. was amazed. He said, "How do You know?" I said, "I know, because when I was in New Zealand I told them he's a realized soul." And our own Prime Minister is also a realized soul. You'll be surprised, after our Prime Minister finished his lecture and all that, after two or three lectures he was to go; then he turned round and went to this Australian [Shri Mataji may have meant New Zealand] Prime Minister, only him, went and congratulated him, congratulated him. Congratulated and said something very close to him. And the fellow again, you see, flew up into joy. We see it's all there. And then he came away. Why? Because one realized soul understands another realized soul, and everybody was amazed: why did he turn to this man alone, and went and congratulated him? So such a large country like India represented by our Prime Minister, goes down all the way to a little country like New Zealand which is nothing compared to India, and congratulates. And that's a developed country, this is a developing country. Is something people did not understand. And the whole joyous atmosphere both of them shaking hands created. This is Sahaja culture, in which you recognize a realized soul, the dignity of a realized soul. So when it comes to relating to others, first and foremost are Sahaja yogis. But I've seen most of the people are more congenial with others, and less congenial with Sahaja yogis. They try to criticize Sahaja yogis all the time, and I test them. I sometimes say, "All right. I don't think this fellow is very good" and all that. But when the other person turns round and shows compassion and says, "No, Mother, I think it will work out" then I like it. I like that. Or else sometimes I say, "Oh, let them go away. There should be no more food for them, it's all right." No, Mother, we've made food for them." So the culture of Sahaj is to give. Give, and give, and give, and never ask for a reward. Never thinks, "What I have to get". After all, you have got the highest that anybody could get. They said the three heights a human being can achieve in spirituality, which you all got in no time. It's called as salokya, samipya, sanidya. Salokya is that you should be able to see God. That you got. Samipya is the closeness with God. Sanidya is the togetherness, togetherness. You have got all these three. In one incarnation you've got it. When Gods incarnated before, nobody knew that they were Gods. So even they got it, they never knew. Very few people knew about them. But even when Christ said He was the Son of God, who, how many believed Him? They crucified Him. Because they were not realized souls. But by giving you realization I have given you that capacity to get all these three blessings at one shot. I speak your language, I speak your style, I live with your style, and you understand Me. There is no problem. But with other Gods, imagine if I were Mahakali today, what would have happened. You would be all upside-down there hanging, seeing Me from the other way round. I don't know what would have happened - or any one of them. So the three blessings that a saint is promised, you've got all of them. But because you've got them, you don't understand. You take it for granted. There's no shraddha. With this experience there should be tremendous faith. Faith is a thing that resides between Me and you, in between. Is we can say, the ocean of joy that is in between. Whatever I emit to you is that shraddha, and when you are drenched into it, the joy of that shraddha makes everything so sahaj. But for that you must open your hearts. A Sahaja yogi who is secretive, who is insular, who is jealous, who separates himself from others is no good. Open your heart. Give away your things, doesn't matter. Matter has only one value, that it can communicate your Sahaj culture. Little things, you see, I see something that you have got beautiful, and in My Mahamaya acting on Myself I say, "Oh, that's very beautiful." and then they say, "Mother, You gave us this." "Ah, sorry." And then I feel very ashamed of Myself, that this is not Sahaj culture, you see. But the joy is so much that I can't help it sometimes I say, "Oh, I - it's so beautiful, this one." "You gave us, Mother." And the whole rapport and the whole feeling; I feeling a little shy about it, and all, they're so beautiful, so dramatic; so dramatic it is, so poetic. Only at that point I feel ashamed of Myself. Of course to be human being you should be ashamed of yourself sometimes. Otherwise the drama is not complete. So the whole thing is so beautiful and so joyous. But that gentleness towards others and yourself should be there. Now if you become unhappy and serious, you are very unkind to yourself and to others. Anybody who is a serious person, sits with a serious face, know that he is not a Sahaja yogi at all. They should be bubbling with laughter, joy all the time. I cannot be serious for more than, I think, five seconds perhaps. I don't know. I try, because lectures should be serious to go into the hearts of the people. But there's not, and you can see that even when I'm getting angry, My eyes betray Me, and there's a twinkle of laughter in the eyes. That's how a person should be, and don't worry what others have to say. You see, the culture where people are just glum like this, is the same as the people where they are frivolous. Now as we can say American culture is to be frivolous, stupid, you see, I won't be surprised supposing your Prime Minister tomorrow starts wearing a sari, just to amuse you. Anything is possible with them, just to amuse you, you see, too - for cheap popularity. Anything frivolous, stupid, they will do. But supposing, you see, it is say an English old conservative personality, then a lady might wear a very official dress with the lines and this and that, and like a man she might become very soon, like that, develop a very serious face. But both things are nonsensical, has no meaning. You have to be natural, and natural everything is always bubbling with joy. And a message. And a message. These flowers are the message of My coming, writ large on them. So a person who is a Sahaj culture man should emit that message to others, people should see, "Oh, this is the man. He is the sahaja fellow." You can see that clearly. There's no seriousness, there's no unhappiness, nothing. Supposing I have said something that might be upsetting you, forget it. If you cannot forget that, then you have not listened to Me. But "forget" doesn't mean that you do not act upon it. "Acting upon it" means that you face yourself and see for yourself how you have ascended and how far you have to go, not how you'll fall down. So it is all the time acting on both sides, as I'm telling you in My lecture, that on one side you'll see to yourself as relationship with Me, and relationship with others. For a Sahaja yogi it should not matter whether you are in a palace or on the street. The first encounter with the first Sahaja yogis - we have only one surviving, now here sitting down - they couldn't bear, for them it was difficult to be in the beautiful atmosphere of India. The reason is, they were analyzing: they have no good bathrooms, no showers. But you have the whole sky. You have all the mountains. You have all the trees. You have got all the waters flowing. But you want to have a little shower, in which you can't even move. Just an idea, just an idea of comfort. You have no comforts, if you ask Me, compared to what we have in India. No comforts at all. I mean, ask any Indian girl to come and stay, she will cry. Even I think here the President, the President has to wash his utensils perhaps, maybe. What a comfort. There's no division of labor. Now in our country we have servants, but "servants" doesn't mean that we cheat them anything else. They eat the same food as we eat. They live the same way we live. But they do different type of work, because they don't have the same mental capacity to be the President. The President does some other work. You have no comfort of any kind, you take it from Me. Food matter, you get everything processed food. Imagine, any time you might be developing cancer due to processed food. What is your speciality then? Try to understand. What is the kind of food: it's not fresh, God knows how it is processed, how it is preserved, from where it is coming. Suddenly in London they said that, "Don't eat this kind of food," you see, "because it has got something contaminated." So everybody rushes, you see, to the store room, because we have to store up all these things. You can't get at the right.... "Oh it's there"; then you start throwing them out. It's a mad racing because people think that, "God knows what we are eating today, is it correct or not?" So food-wise you are zero. Best thing is to live in the villages or in the forests, to get the fresh fruits, wash them in clean flowing water of a river, eat it nicely and sit down enjoying the sun. The comfort of the spirit is the thing we have lost, and those who seek the comfort of the spirit are Sahaja yogis, not otherwise. Comfort of the spirit comes in giving. Say I've borrowed some money from you, I won't be comfortable till I've paid you back. Going further with it, supposing you are caught up into something, you have got some problems. I'll somehow or other manage that you'll come close to Me somewhere, and work it out on you, clear you out, finished. Till then I won't be comfortable; though I'll suffer, I'll have pains, I'll have this, that. As soon as I came here, left Nabhi was like this going on. Corrected it. I took it upon Myself, I sucked it into Me. So they are adventurous. "Oh I will not touch, I am catching, he's catching." Finished. But now the compassion can only work out if you have that kind of a spirit, otherwise you cannot. It becomes sympathy. For example there's one person, Mr. A. or Miss A. or Mrs. A., whatever it is. I mean, I'm just talking of a common personality, and that person is catching. I would say in an ashram, that person should clear out. But all the ashramites will catch from that person, and that person will never be all right. There's a very nice joke about it. There was a lady, she wanted to reduce herself. So there was a machine like a rolling-pin. They said, "If you rub it, then you will reduce." So she brought, poor thing, she brought the machine and she started rolling it. She found that the rolling-pin became fat, instead of she reducing. Same thing is in Sahaja yoga. Instead of Sahaja yogis correcting the others, they get contaminated. That's why I said, "Don't have anybody in the ashram." Because you sympathize. You do not try to correct that person, in a way that you can correct within yourselves, suck it within yourself as your Mother does, and do it. I do it for thousands and thousands and thousands; you have to do it for one or two, so you are never bothered. And that's how you become strong. Not by shunning them, running away from them or condemning yourself, or saying that: "We must save ourselves on the boat." No. Through adventure. "Let's see what happens". Tamara was telling Me, "Nothing catches me, Mother, what is it?" I said: "But who will catch you? Those who will catch will be hurt themselves." So what is it, that Bhairava is to be established. Sidha kala mane Bhairav' - as you have to establish Shri Ganesha, you have to establish also Bhairava, and Hanumana on the right side. If these three deities you establish within yourself, nothing, nothing on this earth can catch you. You'll catch it for a while. But what I find now, I came to this ashram, everybody's left Nabhi caught up. Everybody's left Agnya caught up. So then I get the pain. Everyone. I mean, I have put you inside My body, do you know that? You are part and parcel of My body, you are the cells in My body. And when you catch, I also catch; not catch, but I really get the pain, but I clear it. In the same way, I have given you powers. Every power I have, I have given you. But you have to develop it and you have to be adventurous. But on the contrary, once we have ashrams, everybody settles down, "Oh, now, very comfortable, very cheap." Very economical, that's the first comfort. It's surprising, for a Western person, it is very important that it should be economical, surprising, affluent people think more of saving money than the people who are poor. And English are the last word, save pounds, at the cost of others. On the contrary if you go to India, where they'll be very happy, they'll invite you in their house. Whatever they have they will give it to you, "Eat, eat, eat." They'll force you. They'll be very happy to give. But in England it's very dangerous, you see. Sometimes in the ashram they may not even have food for Me. Really. And if you tell them, "I know. I know." You know. Finished. Then what do you say? They already know it, now what to do? They know. So with the affluence miserliness grows, and money-orientation. In India also I've seen people who get little more money than the rest become very money-oriented. Money becomes everything, money becomes the power, money becomes their life. Sahaja yogi doesn't care for money. Just.. is the dust of our Mother's feet. What is money, what is wealth? And when they do like that, then their money problems are solved. If you have a money problem, know that there's a problem. If you are very particular about money. I am, in a way, because if I have to give somebody, I remember it. But I've seen people who are very anxious to tell Me that, "You have to pay this man so much, that man so much." That's wrong. That's not your look-out. That's very, very wrong to tell Me that, "You have to pay this man or that man." It's not important. Even if I don't pay, I pay him. So in relationship with Me, you are not to tell Me that, "You have to pay so much money to him, this much money should be paid, this is what he owes You." Nothing of the kind. Let the person come and tell Me. Why are you telling? That kind of a message if you give Me, you are lost. Or if you come and tell Me for somebody else that, "Mother, time is up, we have to go. Somebody is hurrying You up." If somebody is hurrying Me, tell him, "Don't hurry Mother." You must know that your kundalinis were not raised with just your own kundalini, but something that is working it out. Something very tremendous, a big organization. You can't see it, it is microscopic. You must know, nobody got realization like that, did they? Thousands getting realization, what's happening? There must be something about... Now how can you tell anything to such an organization? They don't like it. They know it. Actually they are the ones who know, not the English. They know what is to be done. So your relationship with Me acts as your culture. So it is a Mother's cult, you can call it, the Mother's culture. How we are connected with our Mother. I have seen people, if somebody is rude to them, they get very angry. But if somebody is rude to Me they don't feel angry. It should be the other way round. Now I'll give you an example. This Merv Griffin was funny, and both our PRO's were very angry. It was natural and very... I mean, I liked it, but I calmed them down. And Worlikar of course was on top of this thing. But the other fellow would not. He was giving arguments. I was just watching. I mean, if somebody had said this to his mother... There's another one there, he never came to receive Me at the airport. So Worlikar said, "If your own mother had come, you would not have gone?" Then one can give explanation, "Oh, but our Mother is Adi Shakti. My mother is not, she's helpless." It's not. To show your respect, to show your love, you have to go; for your own gain, not for Her gain. For your own gain. This relationship is for your own gain. Supposing if you strike oil, is it for your gain or for the gain of the oil? If you get to the Source, is it for the Source to gain anything, or it is for you to gain anything? Logic, simple logic. So in that culture, you see, you really thrive and you become extremely a happy person, a joyous person. And the expression of such a person is so different, because such a person, as I told you, rises above and sees the problems of others, the decadence of the society, sees all the problems of the world. Not only that, but knows the solutions. We are not like these ordinary people who have racialism, this.. other diseases, I don't know what sort of diseases they have, I also forget. Racialism now, it's another stupid nonsense, you know. What is racialism? God has made somebody's color like this and somebody's color like that, and those same racists are trying to tan their faces. So in this culture of ours we are not bothered about superficial things. What we are bothered about is our inner cleanliness, inner beauty, but that doesn't mean that you should move about like primitive people, no. But if there is inner beauty, then outer beauty comes. You will never find Me dirtily dressed. You will never find Me without a sari on, even when I sleep I wear a sari, because in the night also I have to work, so how can I go in My dressing-gown to the other world? So a person who is a Sahaja yogi has to be an extremely neat and a clean person, but not to tell others, but should be himself or herself. That's one of the things are very important, because others will see you, like loonies, who's going to believe you? So the one effect is from the Mother, you take from the Source, for what? To be that illuminated quality, in you, so that others see you as something great and adore you, worship you. This is this far we have come, now, how your personality should be. But now, when you are dealing with others, know that they are human beings made by God, not by Sahaja yogis by any chance. And they will be tomorrow's Sahaja yogis, may be higher Sahaja yogis than you. So when we are dealing with others also, talk to them in a gentle way. Be kind to them. Of course we are against gurus, against cults, against all these people. But as soon as they come, if you say: "Oh, you are a bhoot", the person will do right-about-turn and go away. So you are not given this power to be abrupt or to be arrogant with others, not given. Now all such people are coming down, calming down because they see that what helps is your gentle, kindly, firm attitude. Only after Sahaja Yoga you can combine all these qualities. You'll be firm, you'll be alert, you'll be gentle and compassionate, smiling, but not making fun of others. So then you become a personality who is alert: to see what is the reaction they're having on others, this is very important to be seen. So now you start witnessing others. What is your reaction on others? I have seen many a times, a new Sahaja yogi comes in. The person is trying to say something, and the girl starts giggling or laughing. One should not, at that time, because the person might think that, "They're making fool of me, or they're thinking that I'm a stupid person, or something wrong with me." That person will become self-conscious, I won't be able to give realization to that person. But if somebody is sitting before Me and I'm trying to help that person, know that it's a very important moment of this gentleman's life. We have got it, so what? When we are pulling out somebody, when we are helping out somebody, do we laugh? That's the time you have to be very concerned and very much serious, to do the job. Every quality and mood has its own place, like nose is at its own place, eyes at its own place. In the same way, all these moods that we have, have their own places. And that is what is lost in modern society. So when I am trying to help somebody, you should be all concern about that person. How does this come in to us from the Source? How much you are concerned about Me? Supposing I am thirsty, you will feel thirsty. You'll immediately say, "Mother, I'll get You some water." But you may not even ask Me, just bring it here, keep it there. Or just make some tea for Me or look after Me. Do this or do that. In little, little things you should watch. The concern is not in saying something, asking something. You don't ask. Don't ask Mother, you just do it. That's how, when you start doing it, you will understand what you are doing to others. So the reflection on others, how they reflect about you also is very important, and you have to be alert. Suddenly you say something, and everybody disappears. You must know they are not yet Sahaja yogis, they are to be brought in, so you have to very carefully bring them around. Then with Sahaja yogis, among yourselves how you behave is extremely important for others to see. We must cherish each other's company, we must cherish. To meet some Sahaja yogi somewhere, "Ah, what a joy it is to see someone, to talk to someone on the phone." But because we are so insular, so selfish, so greedy, and sometimes very circumcised [should read 'circumscribed'] I should say, or absolutely engulfed into our past, we cannot do that, we do not feel that joy, we cannot adore another Sahaja yogi, we do not enjoy another Sahaja yogi, we cannot cherish his company. That means this finger cannot feel this finger. It's like a developing, what you call, a disease called leprosy. Nerves are finished. Nerve endings are not there. You cannot feel the joy of other Sahaja yogis. And this is only possible if you get over your personal interests. When people come in Sahaja Yoga in the beginning, they have personal interests, like say somebody is trying to sell something, so they would like to sell it to Sahaja yogis. Or they are arranging something, they would like Sahaja yogis to do it. See, personal interest, to use Sahaja yogis for their own purposes. As a result of that I've seen some people become so insular that nobody helps them, no work is done by them; if there's a telephone, nobody will say, "I'll get it." That's American quality, they'll say, "I'll get it." Is regarded good. Not in England, they'll be all sitting, quiet. Even when they have eaten the food, they have to pay the money, they'll look this side, and some poor Indian student will pay for all of them. "I won't look", they say. "Now paid." Now they are normal. It's very low-level. Is extremely low-level behavior. And this is what one has to learn, that you have to cherish others, give presents to others. "You're going there; "Oh, now..."; like the other day I met a lady, she had liked one of My rings of emerald. That's My family ring so I can't give away, you see, I'll have to ask C.P. and he may not like it, because after all I have no right on it, I have to give it to My children, all right? But I found an emerald somewhere, beautiful, so I kept it with Me. The other day when I gave her, she was so enamored. I said, "You liked My ring, I couldn't give you My ring, so.." She said to Me, "You mean to say, I would have taken Your ring?" I said, "I would have forced it on you, but I couldn't give you, so I thought of it. I just saw it somewhere so I got it for you." She said, "How thoughtful." But it's all in My head. I, whenever I get it, a chance, you see, so somebody says, "Oh, I like it", keep it in mind. Next time, even a flower. You must cherish their companies, because it's such a great thing to have somebody who understands you, your spirit, and they have the spirit. Such a great thing. How can you be unkind to each other? That hurts Me the most of all. And the first thing and the foremost thing you have to give Me is congenial, beautiful, loving group, that they love each other. If that's achieved, that you really love, beyond your personal considerations. I mean, of course, in Sahaja Yoga there are now not many people who try to make money, but try to make comfort for themselves. They must have the best room, they must have the best place, they must have... "I didn't get this, I should have it, this, that." Try to do more than others. I know sometimes people take advantage of you, but they will go out of Sahaja Yoga very soon. So be sure that you become generous about it, very generous. And generosity should start from your own Sahaja yogi brothers and sisters. In the culture of Sahaja Yoga we have to have a full imbibement bubbling through our nerves, the sense of chastity. That is a must, whether you like it or not. There should be no bad intentions about any other person, of relationships which are not pure. Absolutely pure relationships, pure eyes without any adultery, adulteration I would call it. Clean eyes is the basic of Sahaja Yoga. Steadfast clean eyes, because your eyes are very powerful. You don't know how powerful they are. So to make it that way, to practice, move your attention inward and towards the Sahasrara. You can. With your eyes you suck in. Even by looking at Me with the shraddha, with the joy, you just suck it inside, My image. Put it on your Sahasrara, put it in your heart, you can do it. It's very joy giving. When you put it in the Sahasrara, then you get the knowledge. When you put it in your heart, you get the joy; and when you put it on your liver, then you get the power of action. From the photograph also you can do it, suck in, move it. But that is shown in the way you behave towards others, completely confident, gentle; no arrogance. Neither the neck up like that or like that, but in the center in a very dignified manner. So in the culture of Sahaj, because the spirit is the dignity, is the majesty, is the glory of God, you have to judge yourself. "Did I say something which is not respecting my spirit? Did I do something that is not glorious?" Like I've seen people, when I'm there, they'll go on asking Me hundred questions. "Should it be white towel? Green towel? Should I do this, should I do that?" Why? Because we don't live with choices. We live with whatever we get it, and there is dignity in that. If you start doing choices, it's stupid. In a group of Sahaja yogis, the food, "What will you have?" They'll take forty-five minutes to decide, if you go in a restaurant, because the first, the consciousness, "We are paying for it", and somebody will have this, somebody will have that. The poor waiter will run away. But why should we have different? It's just the same. Whatever Mother is having we'll have, finished. But if not that, at least whatever everybody is having, "Why have separately?" Choices are not there in Sahaja Yoga, remember this word very clearly. Choices of this, choices of that, I don't like it, I like that. This is not good, that is not good. Because we need everything on the level of vibrations, then the choice is coming. Like, if the vibrations are not good we'll not say it, but we'll not have it. But not question of whether green or red or yellow or white. And that is what they are making fool out of you. They will put one name, Cartier, finished. People will pay any amount for that Cartier. Is any ordinary stuff, it is nothing special. But you see that ego, "I've got the Cartier. I paid more to show that I've paid more, that I've been a fool." To pay more for something that's so cheapish; that's what they're playing upon - remember that. So you have to understand that when you are a Sahaj personality, you have your own dignity. These things do not give dignity to you. You give them dignity. But that doesn't mean tomorrow you come like a clown, or like a limbo on your nose. Of course I must see the other point always, because it just slips out that side. When you become dignified, you will wear always something that is dignified. You will do all that is dignified. Is automatically you become dignified. It's nothing artificial. So dignity that comes, as you see your Mother. Whatever you give Me in Puja I take it, all right, but otherwise you cannot give Me anything else. If you give Me, I'll return it, somehow. Somehow I'll return it. A person who is money-oriented cannot have dignity, because you see him like a beggar. See, if there's money-orientation is too much, he comes down to that level, you can see it, there cannot be dignity there. A man who is power-oriented is an idiot. He looks like an idiot. So we cannot become idiots. All right. So we cannot be power-oriented. The one who is sort of a romantic or a love-oriented, is a stupid fellow. He behaves like a stupid fellow. On the street they go on kissing each other all the time. "Where are you going?" "To the divorce case, but last bit we are thinking of having some kisses." Self-respect is the thing. Self is your spirit. The respect of the spirit should give you that dignity. But in privacy you are gentle with your husband, you are gentle with your wife. You must learn how to be gentle with her in privacy, not in public. That's horrible. Specially in India. I am told that people go round with that romanticism and all that. So please, don't do all those romantic stuff in India, it's very embarrassing for Me, very embarrassing. So we cannot do things which embarrasses our Mother. Once you start knowing that, "This will embarrass Mother, we can't do this", automatically you are helping. So when it is related with Me, immediately, "What will Mother think of in me? Is this the way to behave towards Mother?" Immediately you will get the reward, as that thing working through you, as if you become that nature. Sahaja culture is a sahaja nature. Automatically you will do it. You'll talk in that manner, you will speak in that manner, you'll live in that manner. I mean, I have seen people who have never known Me, on a trunk call or a telephone, they recognize. They know I am something special; if they are sensitive enough. From My photograph, the way I sit, the way I talk, immediately everyone asks. The other day where I went for the meeting with My husband, everybody was asking, "Who is this lady?" "Who is this lady?" "Who is this lady?" There's something in the personality. I talk to everyone nicely, I'm very sweet. We cannot be slavish, and we cannot enslave anyone. We have to cherish, even human beings we have to cherish, because they are us. Not to despise anyone, not to laugh at anyone. In the culture of Sahaj, you have to become an expert: expertise. Expertise comes through your adherence to your Mother. Expertise: you all should be an expert, and who will give you the certificate is your Mother only - who else? I may not say so, but your spirit will say that, and not your ego. In this short time whatever was possible, it's such a big subject, culture is; you cannot. But I've talked to you, I would not say in a very analytical way, but in a very synthetic manner. So I've given you very synthesis of the whole thing. "Analytical" would be one, two, three, four, five - cut short - two, three, four, five, like that. It's not like that. And that is how you have to speak to people. One, this is so; two, this is so; three, this is so; finished. You are not Sahaja yogis. In your speeches if you talk like that, finished. But before saying something or doing something, give a little idea where you are leading the people, so they are not frittered away, attention is not frittered away. Give a little idea, as I say, or else while talking, bring them to a point which is important, so that they wait in the sentence to come to that point. But make the whole sentence look so, that it is going towards certain points, so always a Sahaja yogi must make a point out of what they talk, not just babbling, talking. What is the point you are going to make? Whatever they do, they have to know, "What are we going to achieve out of it?" Now, marriage. "What are we going to achieve out of marriage?" A family, house, everybody has, even a donkey has that. What's so great? We are going to achieve a family unit where realized souls are to be born, we're going to look after them in a proper way, and then we are going to emit that unit into this world, like a sparkling diamond set in the beautiful setting of a family, giving light to the whole world. So one's life should not be pointless, and talk should not be pointless, and every moment should be filled with achievements of your visions and dreams, slowly and steadily, which is not at all difficult. If you can get rid of ego and superego, finished, that's all - simple as that. May God bless you all. Mm.. good.. nice.. relaxed, eh? Relaxed. Witness. Everyone cleared out, I think. And no more... one more thing I must say last, as I've said it before, which I've not said here, no-one is going to say that bhoot did it, because such a person will be sent away to the bhoot clan, not to Sahaja Yoga. Don't put your responsibility on the bhoots. Either you are a bhoot or you are a Sahaja yogi, one of the two, you can't be both.

The video is intended for free promotion only. NO PROFIT IS TO BE MADE ON THIS VIDEO. 2.) Despite the video is uncut on its timeline there are portions of the performance that have been "blurred out" due to violations of VIMEOS policy. Biography: The DIRTY ROTTEN IMBECILES' history begins on May 2, 1982 around 4:00pm, in the city of Houston, TX. It was on this day that the musically aggressive quartet we now know as D.R.I. made their first Dirty Rotten noise and called it a song. Back then it was Spike Cassidy (guitar), Kurt Brecht (vocals), Eric Brecht (drums), and Dennis Johnson (bass). The group started practicing at Kurt and Eric's parents home, where the brothers lived amongst the "Madman" (their father).They practiced a few nights a week around 5:00pm, just as the Madman would be on his way home from a hard day at work. He would open his front door only to be blasted with 120db of the band's horrendous attempt to make music. The Madman would then pound on their jam room door until he was let in so that in turn, he could throw them out of his house calling them such things as " you bunch of dirty rotten imbeciles ". This is how D.R.I. got their name. 2 months later, on July 2, 1982, the band played their first show at Joe Star's OMNI, in Houston. On November 6th & 7th of 1982 D.R.I. recorded their first release, the Dirty Rotten EP, stuffing 22 songs into 18 minutes on a 7" EP that played at 33 rpm's. Only 1000 copies of this EP version were pressed, making it now a very rare collector's item. Demand caused the EP to be pressed into a 12" LP version, released in 1983, appropriately called Dirty Rotten LP. Leaving the underground music scene thriving for more. The DRLP became a major success and also an inspiration for many new bands at the time. Soon after that D.R.I. was labeled the fastest band in the world. In 1983 D.R.I. moved to San Francisco, where they lived in their van and ate at soup kitchens in between gigs. Dennis Johnson quit the band and returned home to Texas. He was replaced with Sebastian Amok, and within a few months D.R.I. found themselves on the "Rock Against Reagan" tour with the Dead Kennedy's. At the conclusion of this tour, they replaced Sebastian Amok with Josh Pappe`. Their next release was the 4 song, 7", Violent Pacification EP, in 1984. After touring in the summer of 1984, Eric Brecht got married and left the band. He was replaced with Felix Griffin. D.R.I.'s second full length release, Dealing With It , came in March 1985. The group toured extensively in support of the album. Sometime during the recording of the album, Josh took a leave from the band. Mikey Offender (bass player of the Offenders) was asked to play for the album, although Spike played bass on the songs that Mikey didn't have time to learn. The songs on DWI pointed slightly towards a metal direction, but still remained very hardcore. Almost legendary is the band's recording of "Madman", where Kurt's dad is mad and disturbs a rehearsal. The band gains a real cult status, supported by such fans as Dave Lombardo (Slayer), who tells everyone he's influenced by D.R.I. On April 26th, 1986, they recorded their show at the Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles, and released the video, which was entitled Live At The Olympic. Their third album, Crossover, released in 1987, was perfectly named since the songs on this album had a strong metal sound to them. As the band began to "crossover" to thrash, their songs became longer, slower, and more complex. The press has called D.R.I. the major band of the "crossover" movement, a style that combined punk, hardcore and metal. This music invited a mixed audience of punks, skinheads, and metal fans to their shows, who introduced things like stage diving and slam dancing. The 'Live at the Ritz' video was recorded next, on June 27th 1987, at 'the Ritz' in New York, during the band's worldwide Crossover tour. Also in 1987, one of their songs, 'Snap' appeared on a compilation (with other bands supporting some cause) entitled P.E.A.C.E. In February of 1988, the Dirty Rotten Imbeciles returned to the studio to record Four Of A Kind. The songs on this album have even more of a metal sound to them, and production is the best it's ever been. They even released a music video for the song 'Suit and Tie Guy'. At the same time, the Dirty Rotten LP was remixed to include the songs from the Violent Pacification EP, and was re-released. The band toured Europe again to support the Four of A Kind album, then once home in the U.S., Josh Pappe` leaves the band to play for Boston's Gang Green. He is replaced by John Menor. September 1989 brought the release of Thrash Zone. Two music videos were released from this album. One for 'Beneath the Wheel' and the other for 'Abduction'. Sometime after this, Felix Griffin leaves the group and is replaced by Rob Rampy. During the spring of 1992, Definition was released on Spike Cassidy's own label, Rotten Records. A music video was released for the song 'Acid Rain', and later was even featured in an episode of MTV's "Beavis and Butthead". D.R.I. toured in 1992, opening for Testament, as well as headlining their own shows. They recorded their gig at the Hollywood Palladium on November 27th, 1992, and it was released in 1994 as their first live album, appropriately entitled Live. It was, more or less released as a stepping stone, between Definition and Full Speed Ahead. Soon after recording the show, John Menor leaves D.R.I. He is replaced by one of the band's long time friends and roadie, Chumly Porter. In the fall of 1994 D.R.I. Headlined the international Lolitabazooka tour in Canada & the USA. In 1995, D.R.I. released their newest album called Full Speed Ahead. They also made another music video, this time for a song called 'Syringes in the Sandbox'. In January of 1996, they started touring North America with Acid Bath opening for them. But in April, Rob and Spike ran into some trouble trying to cross the Canadian border because they had both been previously charged with 'Driving Under the Influence' in the U.S. Needless to say, all of their Canadian dates had to be cancelled. And as much as they tour even today, I still don't think Canada will let them in! 1996 also was the release of Slayers Undisputed Attitude Album, witch covered the D.R.I. song 'Violent Pacification'. During 1997-98 D.R.I. continued to tour the world extensively, including European & S.American dates. In March of 1998 D.R.I. launched their Official Web site (www.DirtyRottenImbeciles.com). Also in 1998, NYC's own Metal Thrashers 'Athrax' also covered 2 DRI songs, 'Snap' and 'Id Rather be Sleeping' on their release "Inside Out'. During 1999, D.R.I. appears as one of the headlining bands on the Social Chaos Tour in North America. One of their songs, 'I'm the Liar', is used for a Social Chaos Tour compilation CD, containing one song from each band that appeared on the tour. During August of 1999, in the middle of the Social Chaos Tour, Chumly leaves the band because he is burnt out on touring, and is replaced by Harald Oimoen. Harald had been working on and off with the band for years, doing everything from photography and merchandise to Bass Tech. The band resumed the tour, only missing 2 shows replacing Chumly. In the year 2000, D.R.I. Founder/Guitarist, Spike Cassidy, loses Rotten Records to D.R.I. Manager, Ron Peterson in a partnership backstabbing, and a long court battle is sure to commence. D.R.I. fired their money hungry, backstabbing, rip off manager Ron Peterson, took its catalog of CD's, and left Rotten Records in search of a new record label. The band is said to be entertaining a few good offers. The year also saw the Dirty Rotten Imbeciles headlining their own 'Millennium 2000 Tour' which had been broken into two halves, taking place in the spring and fall of 2000. In 2001 D.R.I. signs with the Independent Label, Beer City Records. D.R.I. is scheduled to embark once again, this time on the "Old School Tour" in the spring of 2001! In 2002 D.R.I. celebrates it 20th year anniversary, kicking off of a world tour named 20 Dirty Rotten Years. The tour is so successful additional legs and shows are added till the tour winds up going well into 2003. The tour covers north and South America, Europe and the UK, Japan and hopes of Australia. 2002 also sees the Bands first release with new and current record label Beer City Records. D.R.I. and Beer City records release the millennium enhanced re-issue of the Dirty Rotten CD that now has 22 bonus tracks, including radio interviews and live video from CBGB's in 1984. 44 tracks in all. Beer City records continues to reissue D.R.I.'s old catalog, and in 2003 they release the millenium enhanced version of the Dealing With it CD. It also has many bonus tracks added to it, along with video clips from a cable tv interview in 1986. D.R.I. also releases a new Skate Board Deck on the sister company, Beer City Skateboards. Its 2004 and the Imbeciles are still at it. Another long world tour that covers over 23 countries, including some places the band has never played before, if you can believe that. After the tour is over, Original Band Members Kurt Brecht and Spike Cassidy work outside the band. Kurt Brecht sings a song on Dave Grohl's solo project 'Probot". the song is track 6 and is called 'Silent Spring'. Spike Cassidy continues to record, engineer & produce bands for other labels. His latest project was the second release "Death Toll' from the Oklahoma based 'Earth AD'. Spike has produced the bands Acid Bath, Deface, STG, and Kiss the Clown, to name a few, as well as all D.R.I. records. ' 2005 sees D.R.I. songs appear on a multiple releases. Two DRI songs are used on the Video Games 'Back Yard Wrestling 2' and 'Tony Hawks American Wasteland'. Another Song is said to be used in the upcoming surf Film titled 'Bruce the Movie'. Lastly the infamous 'Punk Rock Orchestra' should be covering a DRI song on its next release In Early 2006 Spike Cassidy, guitarist and Original Founder of D.R.I., was diagnosed with Cancer. He underwent surgery, radiation and chemotherapy and is said to be winning the battle against cancer. Spike is expected to make a full recovery within a year, but will have to be scanned and tested for a few years to help prevent a relapse. 2007 rings in D.R.I.'s 25th anniversary and the bands hopes to tour are foiled by Spikes ongoing cancer battle. Spike is said to be in good spirits and health but is still unable to tour due to complications. 2008 D.R.I. appears on the soundtrack for the independent short film, "Vampire Hunter Hank," starring Don "Chile" Ortega! In 2009 yet another D.R.I. song makes an appearance on the new 'Skate 2' Video Game. This time its the bands pounding grind of 'Beneath the Wheel'. Also, Decibel Magazine plans to induct the 1985 D.R.I. release "Dealing With It' into its Album Hall of Fame. For the past 27 years, D.R.I. has been the epitome of the aggressive, hardcore-punk thrash sound that we've all become accustomed to hearing. Throughout this time, they've been one of the few genuine underground bands to remain true to their pure punk roots. Still actively touring and recording, the only thing that may have changed is that they're a little older now, but time hasn't gotten the best of the Dirty Rotten Imbeciles. They're still thrashing just as hard, and just as loud as ever, continuing to overload our senses with the sound that is, and will always remain, uniquely D.R.I. source: bands website (www.dirtyrottenimbeciles.com)

Gregory Hayman - I Love You Like Salt

This piece takes as its premise the quote from a number of fairy tales which are common in many countries which show how the good hearted daughter refuses to flatter her father when he asks his daughters in turn how much they love him. The most honest states ‘she loves him like salt’. I.e. in ancient times salt was highly prized, in fact, salt is what Roman soldiers were paid in and led to our word salary – (from salt) and our unit for currency. The tale formed the basis for Shakespeare’s King Lear. The honest daughter Cordelia is banished and the evil flattering ones rewarded. Lear later comes to rue his folly and this leads to his down fall – and the death of Cordelia. I want the words ‘I love you like salt’ to be written in salt at the water’s edge – when the tide is low so that the incoming tide will engulf them and the words erased – claimed by the sea and the material consumed and returned from whence it came – the sea. I want this to illustrate the redemptive and cleansing powers of the sea and to show that love can reach out across the world but can be easily destroyed and all trace of it removed. Instructions: Buy salt in NZ. Take to the beach and when tide is low write the words: ‘I love you like salt’ with the salt on the beach. Photograph and then film or photograph the words as they are reclaimed and erased. Post the images/film on the internet and circulate via social networks the link with these instructions and the narratives below. To Love My Father All William Shakespeare Lear Which of you shall we say doth love us most? That we our largest bounty may extend Where nature doth with merit challenge. Goneril, Our eldest-born, speak first. Goneril Sir, I love you more than words can wield the matter, Dearer than eye-sight, space and liberty, Beyond what can be valued, rich or rare, No less than life, with grace, health, beauty, honour, As much as child e'er loved or father found; A love that makes breath poor and speech unable; Beyond all manner of so much I love you. ... Regan I am made of that self metal as my sister, And prize me at her worth. In my true heart I find she names my very deed of love; Only she comes too short: that I profess Myself an enemy to all other joys Which the most precious square of sense possesses, And find I am alone felicitate In your dear highness' love ... Cordelia I cannot heave My heart into my mouth: I love your majesty According to my bond; nor more nor less. Lear How, how, Cordelia! mend your speech a little, Lest it may mar your fortunes. Cordelia Good my lord, You have begot me, bred me, loved me: I Return those duties back as are right fit, Obey you, love you, and most honour you. Why have my sisters husbands, if they say They love you all? Haply, when I shall wed, That lord whose hand must take my plight shall carry Half my love with him half my care and duty: Sure, I shall never marry like my sister, To love my father all. Source: William Shakespeare, The Tragedy of King Lear, act 1, scene 1. Written 1605 or 1606. This story is also told by Geoffrey of Monmouth in his Historia Regum Britanniae, finished about 1136.

Return to the table of contents. Cap o' Rushes England Well, there was once a very rich gentleman, and he'd three darters [daughters]. And he thought to see how fond they was of him. So he says to the first, "How much do you love me, my dear?" "Why," says she, "as I love my life." "That's good," says he. So he says to the second, "How much do you love me, my dear?" "Why," says she, "better nor all the world." "That's good," says he. So he says to the third, "How much do you love me, my dear?" "Why," she says, "I love you as fresh meat loves salt," says she. Well, he were that angry. "You don't love me at all," says he, "and in my house you stay no more." So he drove her out there and then, and shut the door in her face. Well, she went away, on and on, till she came to a fen. And there she gathered a lot of rushes, and made them into a cloak kind o', with a hood to cover her from head to foot, and to hide her fine clothes. And then she went on and on till she came to a great house. "Do you want a maid?" says she. "No, we don't," says they. "I hain't nowhere to go," says she, "and I'd ask no wages, and do any sort o' work," says she. "Well," says they, "if you like to wash the pots and scrape the saucepans, you may stay," says they. So she stayed there, and washed the pots and scraped the saucepans, and did all the dirty work. And because she gave no name, they called her Cap o' Rushes. Well, one day there was to be a great dance a little way off, and the servants was let go and look at the grand people. Cap o' Rushes said she was too tired to go, so she stayed at home. But when they was gone, she offed with her cap o' rushes, and cleaned herself, and went to the dance. And no one there was so finely dressed as her. Well, who should be there but her master's son, and what should he do but fall in love with her, the minute he set eyes on her. He wouldn't dance with anyone else. But before the dance were done, Cap o' Rushes she stepped off, and away she went home. And when the other maids was back, she was framin' [pretending] to be asleep with her cap o' rushes on. Well, next morning, they says to her, "You did miss a sight, Cap o' Rushes!" "What was that?" says she. "Why the beautifullest lady you ever see, dressed right gay and ga'. The young master, he never took his eyes off of her." "Well, I should ha' liked to have seen her," says Cap o' Rushes. "Well, there's to be another dance this evening, and perhaps she'll be there." But come the evening, Cap o' Rushes said she was too tired to go with them. Howsumdever, when they was gone, she offed with her cap o' rushes, and cleaned herself, and away she went to the dance. The master's son had been reckoning on seeing her, and he danced with no one else, and never took his eyes off of her. But before the dance was over, she slipped off, and home she went, and when the maids came back, she framed to be asleep with her cap o' rushes on. Next day they says to her again, "Well, Cap o' Rushes, you should ha' been there to see the lady. There she was again, gay an' ga', and the young master he never took his eyes off of her." Well there," says she, "I should ha' liked to ha' seen her." "Well," says they, "there's a dance again this evening, and you must go with us, for she's sure to be there." Well, come the evening, Cap o' Rushes said she was too tired to go, and do what they would, she stayed at home. But when they was gone, she offed with her cap o' rushes, and cleaned herself, and away she went to the dance. The master's son was rarely glad when he saw her. He danced with none but her, and never took his eyes off her. When she wouldn't tell him her name, nor where she came from, he gave her a ring, and told her if he didn't see her again he should die. Well, afore the dance was over, off she slipped, and home she went, and when the maids came home she was framing to be asleep with her cap o' rushes on. Well, next day they says to her, "There, Cap o' Rushes, you didn't come last night, and now you won't see the lady, for there's no more dances." Well, I should ha' rarely liked to ha' seen her," says she. The master's son he tried every way to find out where the lady was gone, but go where he might, and ask whom he might, he never heard nothing about her. And he got worse and worse for the love of her till he had to keep his bed. "Make some gruel for the young master," they says to the cook. "He's dying for love of the lady." The cook she set about making it, when Cap o' Rushes came in. "What are you a' doin' on?" says she. "I'm going to make some gruel for the young master," says the cook, "for he's dying for love of the lady." "Let me make it," says Cap o' Rushes. Well, the cook wouldn't at first, but at last she said "yes," and Cap o' Rushes made the gruel. And when she had made it, she slipped the ring into it on the sly, before the cook took it upstairs. The young man, he drank it, and saw the ring at the bottom. "Send for the cook," says he. So up she comes. "Who made this here gruel?" says he. "I did," says the cook, for she were frightened, and he looked at her. "No, you didn't," says he. "Say who did it, and you shan't be harmed." "Well, then, 'twas Cap o' Rushes," says she. So Cap o' Rushes came. "Did you make the gruel?" says he." "Yes, I did," says she. "Where did you get this ring?" says she. "From him as gave it me," says she. "Who are you then?" says the young man. "I'll show you," says she. And she offed with her cap o' rushes, and there she was in her beautiful clothes. Well, the master's son he got well very soon, and they was to be married in a little time. It was to be a very grand wedding, and everyone was asked, far and near. And Cap o' Rushes' father was asked. But she never told nobody who she was. But afore the wedding she went to the cook, and say she, "I want you to dress every dish without a mite o' salt." "That will be rarely nasty," says the cook. "That don't signify," says she. "Very well," says the cook. Well, the wedding day came, and they was married. And after they was married, all the company sat down to their vittles. When they began to eat the meat, that was so tasteless they couldn't eat it. But Cap o' Rushes father, he tried first one dish and then another, and then he burst out crying. "What's the matter?" said the master's son to him. "Oh!" says he, "I had a daughter. And I asked her how much she loved me. And she said, 'As much as fresh meat loves salt.' And I turned her from my door, for I thought she didn't love me. And now I see she loved me best of all. And she may be dead for aught I know." "No, father, here she is," says Cap o' Rushes. And she goes up to him and puts her arms round him. And so they was happy ever after.

Calling them to him one day he said to them, "What is the sweetest thing in the world?" "Sugar," said the elder daughter. "Salt," said the younger. The father was angry at this last answer. But his daughter stuck to it, and so her father said to her, "I won't keep a daughter in my house who believes that salt is the sweetest thing in the world. You must leave me and seek another home." So the younger daughter left her father's house and wandered here and there, suffering much hunger and cold, until t last she was befriended by the fairies. As she walked through a wood one day listening to the songs of the birds, a prince came hunting for deer, and when he saw her he fell in love with her at once. She agreed to marry him, and a great banquet was prepared at the prince's house. To this banquet the bride's father was bidden; but he did not know that the bride was his own daughter. Now, at the wish of the bride, all the dishes were prepared without salt. So when the guests began to eat they found that the food was tasteless. At last one of them said, "There is no salt in the meat!" And then all the guests said, "There is no salt in the meat!" And the bride's father spoke the loudest of all. "Truly, salt is the sweetest thing in the world," he said, "though, for saying so, I sent my own daughter away from my house, and shall never see her face again." Then the bride made herself known to her father, and fell on his neck and kissed him.

The Dirty Shepherdess France Once upon a time there lived a king who had two daughters, and he loved them with all his heart. When they grew up, he was suddenly seized with a wish to know if they, on their part, truly loved him, and he made up his mind that he would give his kingdom to whichever best proved her devotion. So he called the elder princess and said to her, "How much do you love me?" "As the apple of my eye!" answered she. "Ah!" exclaimed the king, kissing her tenderly as he spoke, "you are indeed a good daughter." Then he sent for the younger, and asked her how much she loved him. "I look upon you, my father," she answered, "as I look upon salt in my food." But the king did not like her words, and ordered her to quit the court, and never again to appear before him. The poor princess went sadly up to her room and began to cry, but when she was reminded of her father's commands, she dried her eyes, and made a bundle of her jewels and her best dresses and hurriedly left the castle where she was born. She walked straight along the road in front of her, without knowing very well where she was going or what was to become of her, for she had never been shown how to work, and all she had learnt consisted of a few household rules, and receipts of dishes which her mother had taught her long ago. And as she was afraid that no housewife would want to engage a girl with such a pretty face, she determined to make herself as ugly as she could. She therefore took off the dress that she was wearing and put on some horrible old rags belonging to a beggar, all torn and covered with mud. After that she smeared mud all over her hands and face, and shook her hair into a great tangle. Having thus changed her-appearance, she went about offering herself as a goose-girl or shepherdess. But the farmers' wives would have nothing to say to such a dirty maiden, and sent her away with a morsel of bread for charity's sake. After walking for a great many days without being able to find any work, she came to a large farm where they were in want of a shepherdess, and engaged her gladly. One day when she was keeping her sheep in a lonely tract of land, she suddenly felt a wish to dress herself in her robes of splendor. She washed herself carefully in the stream, and as she always carried her bundle with her, it was easy to shake off her rags, and transform herself in a few moments into a great lady. The king's son, who had lost his way out hunting, perceived this lovely damsel a long way off, and wished to look at her closer. But as soon as the girl saw what he was at, she fled into the wood as swiftly as a bird. The prince ran after her, but as he was running he caught his foot in the root of a tree and fell, and when he got up again, she was nowhere to be seen. When she was quite safe, she put on her rags again, and smeared over her face and hands. However the young prince, who was both hot and thirsty, found his way to the farm, to ask for a drink of cider, and he inquired the name of the beautiful lady that kept the sheep. At this everyone began to laugh, for they said that the shepherdess was one of the ugliest and dirtiest creatures under the sun. The prince thought some witchcraft must be at work, and he hastened away before the return of the shepherdess, who became that evening the butt of everybody's jests. But the king's son thought often of the lovely maiden whom he had only seen for a moment, though she seemed to him much more fascinating than any lady of the court. At last he dreamed of nothing else, and grew thinner day by day till his parents inquired what was the matter, promising to do all they could to make him as happy as he once was. He dared not tell them the truth, lest they should laugh at him, so he only said that he should like some bread baked by the kitchen girl in the distant farm. Although the wish appeared rather odd, they hastened to fulfill it, and the farmer was told the request of the king's son. The maiden showed no surprise at receiving such an order, but merely asked for some flour, salt, and water, and also that she might be left alone in a little room adjoining the oven, where the kneading-trough stood. Before beginning her work she washed herself carefully, and even put on her rings; but, while she was baking, one of her rings slid into the dough. When she had finished she dirtied herself again, and let lumps of the dough stick to her fingers, so that she became as ugly as before. The loaf, which was a very little one, was brought to the king's son, who ate it with pleasure. But in cutting it he found the ring of the princess, and declared to his parents that he would marry the girl whom that ring fitted. So the king made a proclamation through his whole kingdom, and ladies came from afar to lay claim to the honor. But the ring was so tiny that even those who had the smallest hands could only get it on their little fingers. In a short time all the maidens of the kingdom, including the peasant girls, had tried on the ring, and the king was just about to announce that their efforts had been in vain, when the prince observed that he had not yet seen the shepherdess. They sent to fetch her, and she arrived covered with rags, but with her hands cleaner than usual, so that she could easily slip on the ring. The king's son declared that he would fulfill his promise, and when his parents mildly remarked that the girl was only a keeper of sheep, and a very ugly one too, the maiden boldly said that she was born a princess, and that, if they would only give her some water and leave her alone in a room for a few minutes, she would show that she could look as well as anyone in fine clothes. They did what she asked, and when she entered in a magnificent dress, she looked so beautiful that all saw she must be a princess in disguise. The king's son recognized the charming damsel of whom he had once caught a glimpse, and, flinging himself at her feet, asked if she would marry him. The princess then told her story, and said that it would be necessary to send an ambassador to her father to ask his consent and to invite him to the wedding. The princess's father, who had never ceased to repent his harshness towards his daughter, had sought her through the land, but as no one could tell him anything of her, he supposed her dead. Therefore it was with great joy he heard that she was living and that a king's son asked her in marriage, and he quitted his kingdom with his elder daughter so as to be present at the ceremony. By the orders of the bride, they only served her father at the wedding breakfast bread without salt, and meat without seasoning. Seeing him make faces, and eat very little, his daughter, who sat beside him, inquired if his dinner was not to his taste. "No," he replied, "the dishes are carefully cooked and sent up, but they are all so dreadfully tasteless." "Did not I tell you, my father, that salt was the best thing in life? And yet, when I compared you to salt, to show how much I loved you, you thought slightingly of me and you chased me from your presence." The king embraced his daughter, and allowed that he had been wrong to misinterpret her words. Then, for the rest of the wedding feast they gave him bread made with salt, and dishes with seasoning, and he said they were the very best he had ever eaten.

As Dear as Salt Germany A king once asked his daughter how dear he was to her. "As dear, as dear -- as salt!" she said. The king thought that this was very little, and he was very unhappy with his child's answer. Soon thereafter he sponsored a great feast. The daughter saw to it that every dish was brought to the table unsalted, and thus nothing tasted good to the king. Finally the daughter explained everything to him. He then recognized how important salt was, and that his daughter had spoken very positively. Thus he loved her again as dearly as before.

The Most Indispensable Thing Germany Ages ago there lived a king who had three good and beautiful daughters whom he loved very much and who in turn loved him dearly. He had no princes, but in his kingdom it was the custom that the succession of the throne could also pass to women and daughters. Because the king's wife was no longer alive he was free to appoint one of his daughters to the throne, and it did not need to be the oldest one. Because this king loved all of his daughters equally the decision was very difficult for him. He came to the conclusion to select the one who demonstrated the keenest intellect. He shared this determination with his three daughters, declaring that his approaching birthday would be the day of decision. The one who would bring him "the most indispensable thing" would become queen. Each of the princesses thought about what would be the most indispensable thing. When his birthday arrived, the oldest one approached him, carrying a fine purple robe, and said, "The Lord God had mankind come naked into the world, but then he barred them from paradise. Thus robes and clothing are indispensable." The second daughter brought a loaf of fresh bread that she herself had baked. It was lying on top of a filled beaker made of gold. "Food and drink are the most indispensable things for mankind, born from dust, for without these they cannot live. Thus God created the fruits of the field, fruit, berries, and grapes, and taught mankind to make bread and wine, the sacred symbols of his love." The youngest daughter brought a pile of salt on a wooden plate, saying, "My father, I consider salt and wood to be the most indispensable. Ancient peoples paid sacred homage to the trees and considered salt to be holy. The king was very surprised with these gifts. Thinking about them, he said, "Purple is the most indispensable thing for a king, for if he has it, he has everything else. If he loses it, then he is no longer king and is as common as other humans. Because you have perceived this, my oldest and beloved daughter, after me you shall be decorated with royal purple. Come to me and receive my thanks and my blessing!" After kissing and blessing his oldest daughter, he said to the second oldest, "Eating and drinking are not altogether necessary, my good child, and they draw us down entirely too much into commonness. They are a sign of mediocrity and of the masses. I cannot hinder you if you find pleasure therein, nor can I thank you for your poorly chosen gift, but you shall be blessed for your good will." Then the king blessed his daughter, but he did not kiss her. Then he turned to the third princess, who was standing there pale and trembling. After what she had seen and heard, she sensed what was to come. "My daughter, on your wooden plate you may well have some salt, but in your brain you have none," said the king. "You are still alive, and therefore salt is not indispensable. One does not need salt. With your salt you are showing the sense of a peasant, not the sense of a king. And I take no pleasure on that stiff wooden thing. Thus I can neither thank you nor bless you. Go away from me, as far as your feet will carry you. Go to the stupid and coarse people who worship old blocks of wood and tree limbs instead of the living God, and who consider common salt to be sacred." Crying, the youngest princess then turned away from her hard father, and walked far, far away from the court and the royal city, as far as her feet would carry her. She came to an inn and offered her services to the female innkeeper. The innkeeper was touched by her humility, innocence, youth, and beauty, and she took her in as a maid. The princess soon mastered all the household duties, and the innkeeper said, "It would be a pity if the girl did not learn a decent skill. I'll teach her to cook." And thus the princess learned to cook. She grasped everything quickly, and soon could cook some dishes even better and more delicious than the teacher herself. Business improved at the inn because of the good cooking there, and the good cook's reputation -- who was also so young and so beautiful -- spread throughout the entire land. Now it came to pass that this cook's father's oldest daughter was about to be married. A royal wedding was to be held, and it was recommended to bring the famous cook to the court to prepare the feast, for the lords at the royal court, the marshals, the royal wine stewards, the royal dining stewards, the masters of ceremony, the chamberlains, and other excellencies did not share the view that their most gracious lord the king had once expressed, that eating and drinking were not altogether necessary and that they draw us down to commonness. To the contrary, they praised all good food and fine wine and honored -- at least inwardly -- that old and true proverb, "Eating and drinking hold body and soul together." The wedding meal was deliciously prepared, nor was the king's favorite dish lacking, which had been specially ordered by the royal dining steward. The meal was served. There came one dish after the other, and each was highly praised. Finally came the king's favorite dish, and it was served first to him. He tried it and found it completely tasteless. His cheerful mood darkened, and he spoke to the chamberlain standing behind his golden armchair, "This dish is ruined! It is terrible! Stop the platters from being passed around, and summon the cook!" The cook entered the magnificent hall, and the king addressed her, "You have ruined my favorite dish. You have spoiled my pleasure by not putting any salt in my favorite dish!" Then the cook fell at the king's feet, saying with humility, "Have mercy, your majesty, my royal lord, and forgive me! How could I have dared to mix salt into your food? Did I not once hear from a lofty king's own mouth the words, " One does not need salt. Salt is not indispensable. Salt shows only the sense of a peasant, not the sense of a king!" With shame the king recognized these words as his own and the cook as his daughter. Lifting her from the floor where she was kneeling, he drew her to his heart. He then told all the wedding guests her story and had his youngest daughter once again be seated by his side. Then the wedding became doubly joyful, and the king was once again entirely happy with his daughter's love. Salt is holy.

The Necessity of Salt Austria Once upon a time there was a king who had three daughters. Because they were good and beautiful he loved them all sincerely. He did not know which one he should appoint as queen. As his birthday approached he summoned his daughters and said to them, "My dear children, I love all three of you sincerely, and for a long time have not known which one of you I should name to be the heir to my throne. But I have now decided that the one of you shall become queen who brings to me a birthday present that is most necessary in human life. Go and make your plans accordingly and with utmost diligence." The old king's birthday arrived, and the two oldest daughters brought him presents that were very necessary, but at the same time extremely expensive. However, the youngest daughter brought him nothing more than a little pile of salt in a decorated container. When the king saw her present he became very angry, and he drove his daughter out of the castle, forbidding her ever again to let herself be seen by him. With deep sorrow the rejected daughter went out into the unknown world, comforted only by her faith in her own good sense. After walking a good while she came to an inn. There she found a female innkeeper who thoroughly understood cooking. She entered an apprenticeship with her and soon exceeded even the innkeeper in the art of cooking. News spread far and wide of the excellent cook in this inn, and everyone who came this way and who still had a few kreuzers left in his pocket stopped to be served a roast or something even more elegant. The king heard of the cook's reputation, and he hired her as court cook. Now it came to pass that the oldest princess was getting married, and the famous cook was assigned the preparation of the wedding feast, with no expenses to be spared. Thus on the wedding day one elegant dish after the other was served until the table almost cracked. Everything was excellently prepared, and everyone praised the cook. Finally the king's favorite dish arrived. Quickly taking a spoon he tasted it. "This has not been salted!" he cried out angrily. "Have the cook brought before me!" They quickly ran for the cook, who entered the hall undaunted. "Why did you forget to salt my favorite dish, you careless girl?" snapped the king at her. The cook answered, "You drove away your youngest daughter because she thought that salt was so necessary. Perhaps you can now see that your child was not so wrong." When the king heard these words he recognized his daughter, begged her for forgiveness, asked her to be seated at his side, and accepted her once again as his dear child. Then the wedding became doubly joyful. The king lived happily with his children for many years thereafter.

He was very anxious to know which of them loved him most; he tried them in various ways, and it always seemed as if the youngest daughter came out best by the test. Yet he was never satisfied, because we has prepossessed with the idea that the elder ones loved him most. One day he thought he would settle the matter once for all, hy asking each separately how much she loved him. So he called the eldest hy herself, and asked her how much she loved him. "As much as the bread we eat," ran her reply; and he said within himself, "She must, as I thought, love me the most of all; for bread is the first necessary of our existence, without which we cannot live. She means, therefore, that she loves me so much she could not live without me." Then he called the second daughter by herself, and said to her, "How much do you love me?" And she answered, "As much as wine!" "That is a good answer too," said the king to himself. "It is true she does not seem to love me quite so much as the eldest; but still, scarcely can one live without wine, so that there is not much difference." Then he called the youngest by herself, and said to her, "And you, how much do you love me?" And she answered, "As much as salt!" Then the king said, "What a contemptible comparison! She only loves me as much as the cheapest and commonest thing that comes to table. This is as much as to say, she doesn't love me at all. I always thought it was so. I will never see her again." Then he ordered that a wing of the palace should be shut up from the rest, where she should be served with everything belonging to her condition in life, but where she should live by herself apart, and never come near him. Here she lived, then, all alone. But though her father fancied she did not care for him, she pined so much at being kept away from him, that at last she was worn out, and could bear it no longer. The room that had been given her had no windows on to the street, that she might not have the amusement of seeing what was going on in the town, but they looked upon an inner courtyard. Here she sometimes saw the cook come out and wash vegetables at the fountain. "Cook! cook!" she called one day, as she saw him pass thus under the window. The cook looked up with a good-natured face, which gave her encouragement. "Don't you think, cook, I must be very lonely and miserable up here all alone?" "Yes, Signorina!" he replied; "I often think I should like to help you to get out; but I dare not think of it, the king would be so angry." "No, I don't want you to do anything to disobey the king," answered the princess; "but would you really do me a favor, which would make me very grateful indeed?" "O! yes, Signorina, anything which I can do without disobeying the king," replied the faithful servant. "Then this is it," said the princess. "Will you just oblige me so far as to cook papa's dinner today without any salt in anything? Not the least grain in anything at all. Let it be as good a dinner as you like, but no salt in anything. Will you do that?" "I see!" replied the cook, with a knowing nod. "Yes, depend on me, I will do it." That day at dinner the king had no salt in the soup, no salt in the boiled meat, no salt in the roast, no salt in the fried. "What is the meaning of this?" said the king, as he pushed dish after dish away from him. "There is not a single thing I can eat today. I don't know what they have done to everything, but there is not a single thing that has got the least taste. Let the cook be called." So the cook came before him. "What have you done to the victuals today?" said the king, sternly. "You have sent up a lot of dishes, and no one alive can tell one from another. They are all of them exactly alike, and there is not one of them can be eaten. Speak!" The cook answered: "Hearing your Majesty say that salt was the commonest thing that comes to table, and altogether so worthless and contemptible, I considered in my mind whether it was a thing that at all deserved to be served up to the table of the king; and judging that it was not worthy, I abolished it from the king's kitchen, and dressed all the meats without it. Barring this, the dishes are the same that are sent every day to the table of the king." Then the king understood the value of salt, and he comprehended how great was the love of his youngest child for him; so he sent and had her apartment opened, and called her to him, never to go away any more.

Like Good Salt Italy Once upon a time there was a king, and this king had three daughters. One fine day he took it into his head to call these three daughters, and to ask them, one after another, if they loved him. He calls the eldest, and he says, "Hark ye, do you love me?" Says she, "Yes, daddy, I do." "And how much?" "As much as good bread." The king thinks and thinks, and then he says, "Yes; when you're hungry bread is a good thing." Then he calls the middle daughter, and he says to her, "Hark ye, do you love me?" "Yes, daddy, I do." "And how much?" "As much as good wine." Well, the king thinks and thinks, and then he says, "Yes, yes; wine puts life into a man, therefore it is a good thing." Then he calls the youngest daughter, and he says, "Hark ye, and do you love me too?" "Yes, daddy, I do." "And how much?" "As much as good salt." And the king said, "As much as good salt!" And he began to think and think, and, because salt by itself tastes bad, this answer of the youngest daughter did not please him." The king, having satisfied himself by reflection that to be loved as mnch as good salt is equivalent to not being loved at all, calls his most faithful servant, and orders him to conduct the youngest princess into some desert place, there to kill her, and to bring back her eyes and her heart in proof of the accomplishment of the deed. The faithful servant receives this remarkable order with the utmost calmness, merely replying, "It shall all be done." The princess is conducted into a great meadow, and there informed that her father's commands are that she shall be killed, and her eyes and heart carried back to the palace. Whilst she is begging for her life, she perceives a little dog, and exclaims that heaven has sent it to assist her escape. She persuades the faithful servant to kill the dog, and carry back its eyes and heart instead of her own. He consents; and she is left alone in the great meadow, very much at a loss what to do, and crying bitterly. In the midst of her grief and perplexity she meets with an old woman -- a fairy of course -- who gives her a little wand. When she puts the wand into her bosom her form will change to that of an old woman. She is then to proceed in a certain direction until she finds a palace. In this palace, as the fairy happens to know, tbey are in want of a woman to look after the poultry. The princess is told to ring the bell of the palace and offer herself for the place in her assumed form of an old woman. All which falls out according to the fairy's directions, and the princess is received as hen-woman into the king's service. There not being room for her to sleep in the palace, she is put to lodge in an outhouse hard by. One evening, the queen's son, happening to pass that way, hears the old hen-woman in her chamber sobbing and lamenting in a very piteous manner. He waits until she comes out, and asks her the cause of hor grief. Is she discontented with her master and mistress? No; on the contrary, the hen-woman is most thankful to them, but she is crying over some private misfortunes of her own. But the next evening the young king goes near the outhouse again, ard hears the same lamentations. His curiosity is excited. He makes a hole in the wall with a gimlet, and, peeping through it, he beholds no old hen-woman, but a beautiful young lady; for the princess resumes her proper form in her own chamber every night by the simple process of putting down the fairy's little wand which she carries in her bosom all day. The young king went directly to his mother, and said to her, "Mother, mother, it's no old woman that minds our hens, but the most beautiful girl that eyes ever saw. Come quickly and look, for I have made a hole in the wall, and you can peep through." With that the queen up and went, and looked through the hole, and saw a beautiful girl, crying bitterly. Said the queen, "Well, you're right; she is a most beautiful young woman." The son said, "Mother, I'll have her for my wife." "Very well, we'll go and ask her." They waited until the hen-woman came out, and then the queen said to her, "Why are you always crying so, goody? But, indeed, you're not goody, but a beautiful young girl, and I won't have you stay there any longer." "And if you're content," said the king, "I'll have you for my wife." "Oh, your majesty," said she; "that's not for the like of me!" "No matter for that," said the queen. "Come along with us now, and in a fortnight's time you shall be my son's wife." This arrangement is acceded to by the disguised princess. But she requests as a favor that on the day of her wedding the bridegroom shall invite all the other kings to a banquet; and that, moreover, all the dishes set before one special king, whom she will indicate, shall be dressed entirely without salt, and that the said king shall be seated nest to her. The wedding day came. All the kings who had been invited were there, and among them the king whose dinner was to be served without salt, and he sat next the bride. When the dinner was served, this king began to sup his broth, and found that there was no salt in it, and he gave a great sigh. He looked at the bride who sat beside him, and he kept looking and looking, because she was so exactly like his daughter. Said she to him, "What's the matter, your royal majesty, that you sigh, and don't eat?" He gave another sigh, and looked at her, but said nothing. They brought one dish after another, but he only just tasted them, and then left them, because they were all without salt. The bride began again saying to him, "But whatever is the matter that you keep on sighing so, and eat nothing?" "I sigh because of something that comes into my head." "Oh, but eat now, and don't think of anything else!" Then the king could not hold his peace any longer. The remorse he felt -- the dinner without salt -- the bride who was so like his daughter -- all made his heart so full, that it was ready to burst, and he was obliged to speak. "If you only knew," said he, "what I have done! One fine morning I took it into my head to call all my daughters, and ask them if they loved me. The youngest one said, yes, she did as much as good salt. At the moment it seemed to me that salt was not a good thing; but now I know how good it is, and that we cannot do without it. But at the moment, in a fit of rage, I called my servant, and ordered him to take away my daughter into some desert place, and to kill her, and to bring back her eyes and her heart. And he did it. He took her away, and killed her, and brought me back her eyes and her heart. And when I look at you I seem to see my daughter, you are so like her." "Have you that servant still?" said she. "Yes; I have him still. But it was none of his fault, you know. He only did what I bade him." "And if I were to say to you that I am your daughter, would you believe me? And that the servant, instead of killing me, killed a little dog, and that, instead of taking out my eyes and my heart, he took out the little dog's, and that he left me to my fate?" Then the king, when he heard all this, was ready to faint. He was just going to fall down on his knees, and ask his daughter's pardon; but she said, "You must do nothing of the sort. Let bygones be bygones; you will always be my own daddy, and now let us think of nothing but making merry. Only I should like that everything belonging to me at home should be given to that servant, because it was he who saved my life." The king was so delighted at finding his daughter again, whom he thought was dead, and at being present at her wedding, that he ordered eight days' more feasting at his own expense, and invited all the kings of his acquaintance, and the faithful servant too, and they had a great merry-making, and lived happy ever after.

These three daughters being at table one day, their father said, "Come now, let us see which of you three loves me." The oldest said, "Papa, I love you as much as my eyes." The second answered, "I love you as much as my heart." The youngest said, "I love you as much as water and salt." The king heard her with amazement, "Do you value me like water and salt? Quick! call the executioners, for I will have her killed immediately." The other sisters privately gave the executioners a little dog, and told them to kill it and rend one of the youngest sister's garments, but to leave her in a cave. This they did, and brought back to the king the dog's tongue and the rent garment: "Royal majesty, here is her tongue and garment." And his majesty gave them a reward. The unfortunate princess was found in the forest by a magician, who took her to his house opposite the royal palace. Here the king's son saw her and fell desperately in love with her, and the match was soon agreed upon. Then the magician came and said, "You must kill me the day before the wedding. You must invite three kings, your father the first. You must order the servants to pass water and salt to all the guests except your father." Now let us return to the father of this young girl, who the longer he lived the more his love for her increased, and he was sick of grief. When her received the invitation he said, "And how can I go with this love for my daughter?" And he would not go. Then he thought, "But this king will be offended if I do not go, and will declare war against me some time." He accepted and went. The day before the wedding they killed the magician and quartered him, and put a quarter in each of four rooms, and sprinkled his blood in all the rooms and on the stairway, and the blood and flesh became gold and precious stones. When the three kings came and saw the golden stairs, they did not like to step on them. "Never mind," said the prince, "go up. This is nothing." That evening they were married. The next day they had a banquet. The prince gave orders. "No salt and water to that king." They sat down at table, and the young queen was near her father, but he did not eat. His daughter said, "Royal majesty, why do you not eat. Does not the food please you?" "What an idea! It is very fine." "Why don't you eat then?" "I don't feel very well." The bride and groom helped him to some bits of meat, but the king did not want it, and chewed his food over and over again like a goat (as if he could eat it without salt!). When they finished eating they began to tell stories, and the king told them all about his daughter. She asked him if he could still recognize her, and stepping out of the room put on the same dress she wore when he sent her away to be killed. "You caused me to be killed because I told you I loved you as much as salt and water. Now you have seen what it is to eat without salt and water." Her father could not say a word, but embraced her and begged her pardon. They remained happy and contented, and here we are with nothing.

The King and His Daughters Pakistan There was once a king who had several daughters. To the first he said, "How do you love me?" "I love you as sugar," said she. To the next he said, "And how do you love me?" "I love you as honey," said she. To the third he said, "And how do you love me?" "I love you as sherbet," said she. To the last and youngest he said, "And how do you love me?" "I love you as salt," said she. On hearing the answer of his youngest daughter the king frowned, and, as she persisted in repeating it, he drove her out into the forest. There, when wandering sadly along, she heard the tramping of a horse, and she hid herself in a hollow tree. But the fluttering of her dress betrayed her to the rider, who was a prince, and who instantly fell in love with her and married her. Some time after, the king, her father, who did not know what had become of her, paid her husband a visit. When he sat down to meat, the princess took care that all the dishes presented to him should be made-up sweets, which he either passed by altogether or merely tasted. He was very hungry, and was longing sorely for something which he could eat, when the princess sent him a dish of common spinach, seasoned with salt, such as farmers eat, and the king signified his pleasure by eating it with relish. Then the princess threw off her veil, and, revealing herself to her father, said, "Oh my father, I love you as salt. My love may be homely, but it is true, genuine and lasting, and I entreat your forgiveness." Then the king perceived how great a mistake he had made, and there followed a full reconciliation.

The Princess Who Loved Her Father Like Salt India In a country there lived a king who had seven daughters. One day he called them all to him and said to them, "My daughters, how much do you love me?" The six eldest answered, "Father, we love you as much as sweetmeats and sugar;" but the seventh and youngest daughter said, "Father, I love you as much as salt." The king was much pleased with his six eldest daughters, but very angry with his youngest daughter. "What is this?" he said; "my daughter only loves me as much as she does salt!" Then he called some of his servants, and said to them, "Get a palanquin ready, and carry my youngest daughter away to the jungle." The servants did as they were bid; and when they got to the jungle, they put the palanquin down under a tree and went away. The princess called to them, "Where are you going? Stay here; my father did not tell you to leave me alone in the jungle." "We will come back," said the servants; "we are only going to drink some water." But they returned to her father's palace. The princess waited in the palanquin under the tree, and it was now evening, and the servants had not come back. She was very much frightened and cried bitterly. "The tigers and wild beasts will eat me," she said to herself. At last she went to sleep, and slept for a little while. When she awoke she found in her palanquin some food on a plate, and a little water, that God had sent her while she slept. She ate the food and drank the water, and then she felt happier, for she thought, "God must have sent me this food and water." She decided that as it was now night she had better stay in her palanquin, and go to sleep. "Perhaps the tigers and wild beasts will come and eat me," she thought; "but if they don't, I will try tomorrow to get out of this jungle, and go to another country." The next morning she left her palanquin and set out. She walked on, till, deep in the jungle, she came to a beautiful palace, which did not belong to her father, but to another king. The gate was shut, but she opened it, and went in. She looked all about, and thought, "What a beautiful house this is, and what a pretty garden and tank!" Everything was beautiful, only there were no servants nor anybody else to be seen. She went into the house, and through all the rooms. In one room she saw a dinner ready to be eaten, but there was no one to eat it. At last she came to a room in which was a splendid bed, and on it lay a king's son covered with a shawl. She took the shawl off, and then she saw he was very beautiful, and that he was dead. His body was stuck full of needles. She sat down on the bed, and there she sat for one week, without eating, or drinking, or sleeping, pulling out the needles. Then a man came by who said to her, "I have here a girl I wish to sell." "I have no rupees," said the princess; "but if you will sell her to me for my gold bangles, I will buy her." The man took the bangles, and left the girl with the princess, who was very glad to have her. "Now," she thought, "I shall be no longer alone." All day and all night long the princess sat and pulled out the needles, while the girl went about the palace doing other work. At the end of other two weeks the princess had pulled out all the needles from the king's body, except those in his eyes. Then the king's daughter said to her servant-girl, "For three weeks I have not bathed. Get a bath ready for me, and while I am bathing sit by the king, but do not take the needles out of his eyes. I will pull them out myself." The servant-girl promised not to pull out the needles. Then she got the bath ready; but when the king's daughter had gone to bathe, she sat down on the bed, and pulled the needles out of the king's eyes. As soon as she had done so, he opened his eyes, and sat up. He thanked God for bringing him to life again. Then he looked about, and saw the servant-girl, and said to her, "Who has made me well and pulled all the needles out of my body?" "I have," she answered. Then he thanked her and said she should be his wife. When the princess came from her bath, she found the king alive, and sitting on his bed talking to her servant. When she saw this she was very sad, but she said nothing. The king said to the servant-maid, "Who is this girl?" She answered, "She is one of my servants." And from that moment the princess became a servant-girl, and her servant girl married the king. Every day the king said, "Can this lovely girl be really a servant? She is far more beautiful than my wife." One day the king thought, "I will go to another country to eat the air." So he called the pretended princess, his wife, and told her he was going to eat the air in another country. "What would you like me to bring you when I come back?" She answered, "I should like beautiful saris and clothes, and gold and silver jewels." Then the king said, "Call the servant-girl, and ask her what she would like me to bring her." The real princess came, and the king said to her, "See, I am going to another country to eat the air. What would you like me to bring for you when I return?" "King," she answered, "if you can bring me what I want I will tell you what it is; but if you cannot get it, I will not tell you." "Tell me what it is," said the king. "Whatever it may be I will bring it you." "Good," said the princess. "I want a sun-jewel box." Now the princess knew all about the sun-jewel boxes, and that only fairies had such boxes. And she knew, too, what would be in hers if the king could get one for her, although these boxes contain sometimes one thing and sometimes another. The king had never heard of such a box, and did not know what it was like; so he went to every country asking all the people he met what sort of box was a sun-jewel box, and where he could get it. At last one day, after a fruitless search, he was very sad, for he thought, "I have promised the servant to bring her a sun-jewel box, and now I cannot get one for her; what shall I do?" Then he went to sleep, and had a dream. In it he saw a jungle, and in the jungle a fakir who, when he slept, slept for twelve years, and then was awake for twelve years. The king felt sure this man could give him what he wanted, so when he woke he said to his sepoys and servants, "Stay here in this spot till I return to you; then we will go back to my country." He mounted his horse and set out for the jungle he had seen in his dream. He went on and on till he came to it, and there he saw the fakir lying asleep. He had been asleep for twelve years all but two weeks. Over him were a quantity of leaves, and grass, and a great deal of mud. The king began taking off all the grass, and leaves, and mud, and every day for a fortnight when he got up he cleared them all away from off the fakir. When the fakir awoke at the end of the two weeks, and saw that no mud, or grass, or leaves were upon him, but that he was quite clean, he was very much pleased, and said to the king, "I have slept for twelve years, and yet I am as clean as I was when I went to sleep. When I awoke after my last sleep, I was all covered with dirt and mud, grass and leaves; but this time I am quite clean." The king stayed with the fakir for a week, and waited on him and did everything for him. The fakir was very much pleased with the king, and he told this to him: "You are a very good man." He added, " Why did you come to this jungle? You are such a great king, what can you want from me?" "I want a sun-jewel box," answered the king. "You are such a good man," said the fakir, "that I will give you one." Then the fakir went to a beautiful well, down which he went right to the bottom. There, there was a house in which lived the red fairy. She was called the red fairy not because her skin was red, for it was quite white, but because everything about her was red: her house, her clothes, and her country. She was very glad to see the fakir, and asked him why he had come to see her. "I want you to give me a sun-jewel box," he answered. "Very good," said the fairy, and she brought him one in which were seven small dolls and a little flute. "No one but she who wants this box must open it," said the fairy to the fakir. "She must open it when she is quite alone and at night." Then she told him what was in the box. The fakir thanked her, and took the box to the king, who was delighted and made many salaams to the fakir. The fakir told him none but the person who wished for the box was to open it; but he did not tell him what more the fairy had said. The king set off on his journey now, and when he came to his servants and sepoys, he said to them he would now return to his country, as he had found the box he wanted. When he reached his palace he called the false princess, his wife, and gave her her silks and shawls, and scarfs, and gold and silver jewels. Then he called the servant-girl -- the true princess -- and gave her her sun-jewel box. She took it, and was delighted to have it. She made him many salaams and went away with her box, but did not open it then, for she knew what was in it, and that she must open it at night and alone. That night she took her box and went out all by herself to a wide plain in the jungle, and there opened it. She took the little flute, put it to her lips, and began to play, and instantly out flew the seven little dolls, who were all little fairies, and they took chairs and carpets from the box, and arranged them all in a large tent which appeared at that moment. Then the fairies bathed her, combed and rolled up her hair, put on her grand clothes and lovely slippers. But all the time the princess did nothing but cry. They brought a chair and placed it before the tent, and made her sit in it One of them took the flute and played on it, and all the others danced before the princess, and they sang songs for her. Still she cried and cried. At last, at four o'clock in the morning, one of the fairies said, "Princess, why do you cry?" "I took all the needles out of the king, all but those in his eyes," said the princess, "and while I was bathing, my servant-girl, whom I had bought with my gold bangles, pulled these out She told the king it was she who had pulled out all the other needles and brought him to life, and that I was her servant, and she has taken my place and is treated as the princess, and the king has married her, while I am made to do a servant's work and treated as the servant." "Do not cry," said the fairies. "Everything will be well for you by and by." When it was close on morning, the princess played on the flute, and all the chairs, sofas, and fairies became quite tiny and went into the box, and the tent disappeared. She shut it up, and took it back to the king's palace. The next night she again went out to the jungle-plain, and all happened as on the night before. A wood-cutter was coming home late from his work, and had to pass by the plain. He wondered when he saw the tent. "I went by some time ago," he said to himself, "and I saw no tent here." He climbed up a big tree to see what was going on, and saw the fairies dancing before the princess, who sat outside the tent, and he saw how she cried though the fairies did all they could to amuse her. Then he heard the fairies say, "Princess, why do you cry?" And he heard her tell them how she had cured the king, and how her servant-girl had taken her place and made her a servant. "Never mind, don't cry," said the fairies. "All will be well by and by." Near morning the princess played on her flute, and the fairies went into the box, and the tent disappeared, and the princess went back to the palace. The third night passed as the other two had done. The wood-cutter came to look on, and climbed into the tree to see the fairies and the princess. Again the fairies asked her why she cried, and she gave the same answer. The next day the wood-cutter went to the king. "Last night and the night before," he said, "as I came home from work, I saw a large tent in the jungle, and before the tent there sat a princess who did nothing but cry, while seven fairies danced before her, or played on different instruments, and sang songs to her." The king was very much astonished, and said to the wood-cutter, "Tonight I will go with you, and see the tent, and the princess, and the fairies." When it was night the princess went out softly and opened her box on the plain. The wood-cutter fetched the king, and the two men climbed into a tree, and watched the fairies as they danced and sang. The king saw that the princess who sat and cried was his own servant-girl. He heard her tell the fairies all she had done for him, and all that had happened to her; so he came suddenly down from the tree, and went up to her, and took her hand. "I always thought you were a princess, and no servant-girl," he said. "Will you marry me?" She left off crying, and said, "Yes, I will marry you." She played on her flute, and the tent disappeared, and all the fairies, and sofas, and chairs went into the box. She put her flute in it, as she always did before shutting down the lid, and went home with the king. The servant-girl was very vexed and angry when she found the king knew all that had happened. However, the princess was most good to her, and never treated her unkindly. The princess then sent a letter to her mother, in which she wrote, "I am going to be married to a great king. You and my father must come to my wedding, and must bring my sisters with you." They all came, and her father and mother liked the king very much, and were glad their daughter should marry him. The wedding took place, and they stayed with her for some time. For a whole week she gave their servants and sepoys nice food cooked with salt, but to her father and mother and sisters she only gave food cooked with sugar. At last they got so tired of this sweet food that they could eat it no longer. At the end of the week she gave them a dinner cooked with salt. Then her father said, "My daughter is wise though she is so young, and is the youngest of my daughters. I know now how much she loved me when she said she loved me like salt. People cannot eat their food without salt. If their food is cooked with sugar one day, it must be cooked with salt the next, or they cannot eat it." After this her father and mother and sisters went home, but they often came to see their little daughter and her husband. The princess, the king, and the servant-maid all lived happily together Source: Maive Stokes, Indian Fairy Tales (London: Ellis and White, 1880), no. 23, pp. 164-72.

Universal Studios backlot, Los Angeles.

Highlights from the Universal Studios backlot, in Universal City, Los Angeles. In order of appearance: Mr Potato Head outside the Hasbro production bungalow, on the front lot. This is the place where film classics such as Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen are dreamed up by highly paid cinematic geniuses. Collapsing bridge. Seen in television series as diverse (and as terrible) as The Six Million Dollar Man and Quantum Leap. Picture cars. Automobiles made specifically for use in films and television. The picture cars featured here include drift racers from The Fast and the Furious 3, Tom Seleck's car from Magnum P.I., cars from Animal House, the Blues Brothers and a De Lorean from Back To The Future. Best of all is a vehicle from Serenity. Just think, Summer Glau's arsehole has made contact with that sexy red leather. Mmmmm..... All-terain vehicles from the all-terrible The Lost World: Jurassic Park, plus unconvincing spitting animatronic dino from the same. The SS Venture 'bigature' and Skull Island set from Peter Jackson's nine hour, not-at-all-indulgent remake of King Kong. Pretentious NY film school students shooting some shitty project. Don't worry guys, MacDonald's will always need new staff. Either a flash flood or the set of Cytherea's latest movie. Hugely unimpressive car stunt thing. Now you know where all the auto industry bailout money went. (c) 2009 Conan O'Brian. 9.0 earthquake. This wasn't part of the tour, just another day in LA. The set of 'Wisteria Lane' from something called Desperate Housewives, which I refuse to acknowledge I know anything about even though I'd die if I missed an episode. 'Whoville' from Ron Howard's adaptation of the best selling Doctor Seuss book 'Angels And Demons'. Bates house, Bates motel and an Anthony Perkins look-alike. Don't tell him, but he's being replaced by a Vince Vaughn-alike as soon as his contract expires. Crashed DC8 set from Tom Cruise film about an evil alien overlord who, 75 million yea....oh wait, not it's a 747 from Tom Cruise film about a war of the worlds, apparently. This Jaws set was also, bizarrely, used in the series Murder, She Wrote. A crossover would have been awesome, they missed a trick there.

Rev Randy Francis LLM Service May 27 2012

Heartistic Attendance While Following Our Passion Rev. Randall Francis May 27, 2012 Good morning, everyone. Good morning. Thank you. It’s an amazing pleasure to be here in New York. Thank you. Wow, what a crowd. You came out even in th e beautiful May rain this morning that is bringing out the flowers. I want to bring greetings to you from our senior pastor and her family and our True Parents. I was watching some of the Twitter feeds this morning from our international president, Hyung Jin Nim. He is in Lake Tahoe with True Parents , and it is amazing to see them in that big blue lake. I don’t know if you’ve ever been to Lake Tahoe, but it’s such an amazing big blue lake. I think it’s somewhat like my blue eyes, in the mountains . Let’s pray for our True Parents. Introducing Rev. Randy Francis and District 1 My name is Randy Francis. I am from the Washington, D. C. , area. My wife Kumiko and I are the district pastor couple in District 1, which includes Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia. We claim the District of Columbia as a state in some ways for the providence there. I am excited to be here with you in New York and with you all across the country: at a ll those 100-plus locations. The people here , including our incredible band, Sonic Cult, and the whole team here in New York, do an amazing job in putting together the Lovin’ Life worship service . I had an opportunity to go backstage to look around here and see what was going on, to see the prayers amongst small groups and the many support activities. It is just fantastic. I know that is what helps make everything run here, and it is building a ministry that we can be proud of. In District 1 we have locations in Norfolk, Virginia, led by Pastors Akira and Yoko Ota and assisted by Rev. Levy and Claire Daugherty. Also, in Richmond, we have Father Bayo and his wife, Ayano . In the northern part of Virginia near Washington, D.C., we have Pastor Judie Lejeune and her husband Roland, and they are co- pastors with Ernest and Keiko Patton. I want to give a shout-out to you all. We have our big, big community in Maryland, and I know they’re watching. And some of you are here. They’re led by Pastors Matthew and Marianne Goldberg, who are supported by an incredible team that is putting together a lot of new initiatives every day. Every week, one of our goals is to do something new, so that when people walk in, they feel and see something new going on, and they can find a place to connect. Our creative team in the D. C. metro area is led by Kaeleigh and David Moffitt. They have an outstanding team, including our band, working with them . We’re trying to mimic the Sonic Cult in Maryland and to inspire the budding musicians from throughout our community. Our band, led by Jin Soon Stephens: and George, you’re there occasionally singing. We love your voice. We love to see anyone who wants to find a place to contribute. There are so many different places, with greeters, ushers, the welcoming team, the care teams, and the Sunday School. We have a large group. Last year In Jin Nim, our senior pastor, encouraged us to worship together as a unified community, as the united D. C. metropolitan area, and we’ve been doing that. There are 400 to 500 people sometimes on a Sunday morning, so it’s a large group, but we’re working at it. We’re getting ready to launch perhaps a new location where we can be stable at another school. Right now we’re meeting at our New Hope Academy . Some of the things that go on there are kind of mind-blowing to me . I was standing one time after church out on our patio, the entranceway to the school, and I was talking with a young man . All of a sudden, he said, “H ey, where did all these little kids come from?” These were one-, two-, and three year olds. I said, “O h, those are your nieces and nephews. They’re our third -generation running around amongst us .” When we stop to look back , we see that everything we’re doing has a specific purpose: to bring about special growth and establish a tradition that is our legacy that will can carry us on throughout the years unto future generations. Pentecost Sunday and Memorial Monday This weekend is quite a busy one , if you hadn’t noticed already. As Victoria mentioned, it is Memorial Day weekend and Monday is Memorial Day. Today is also Pentecost Sunday for Christians. Yes, let’s give it up for the Holy Spirit coming 50 days after Jesus’ resurrection at Easter. Today commemorates for Jews the day when God through Moses gave the Torah, including the 10 Commandments, to the Israelites camped at Mt. Sinai . I went yesterday to the UTS graduation for the class of 2012. Are there any of those new UTS graduates here today? Congratulations. From Washington, we have Bill Selig who has worked through th e different levels at UTS, from the master’s degree to the doctorate degree . Since it’s Pentecost Sunday, you graduates have to pray and hope that the Holy Spirit will come down and work through you and guide you, to continue this ministry as you’re going forward from here. Also just because it is Memorial Day, it is not really the beginning of summer, even though sometimes we think that. And it is not the end of the school year. Let’s not forget that Memorial Day is a time to remember those who served our country in the military. Also, I’d like to remember all of our brothers and sisters – about 600 of our Unificationists and close associates, including members of our True Parents’ family I’ve found through researching online – who have ascended into spirit world before us . If you could, I’d like to take just a moment of prayer and remembrance for them . (Pause) Amen. Thank you. In America we celebrate that as a 3:00 p.m. remembrance tomorrow on Memorial Day, but it’s always good to remember our past. In fact, part of my message today is about [1.] remembering and honoring our traditions. I’ll also be speaking about [2.] practicing the Divine Principle in our daily lives: how we can do that and make it a part of our daily lives while also having fun doing that. [3.] Having fun is a key element. I know that our senior pastor upholds those three things as core values for our young people . Let me introduce some of our senior pastor’s words here: Our life is a gift from Our Heavenly Parent and it is an opportunity to create beauty, to express love and to leave something behind that’s truly beautiful. If we come together as a community to realize how special each and every one of us is, then the world is our oyster, and we are going to reap many great blessings and harvests. When I reflect on these words from 2009, I recall that it was a time when I had an opportunity to connect deeply with what our senior pastor was expressing to us. She made me think outside of my own self, my own box, to think beyond the normal and the tradition that I had already set up in my own life. She helped me go beyond that. The Washington Monument Festival Let me just give you a bit of my own background. I guess I’m a unique soul, like each of us. I was born in Washington, D.C. I’m a graduate of Georgetown University – the hospital. Here’s a slide about the Washington Monument, the God Bless America Festival in Washington, D. C. Over there by that tree by the monument is where I made my encampment with my cooler and my friends. We came to the God Bless America Festival, invited by the wonderful TV ads that were produced by our brother Gil Roschuni. So for all you around the country who are looking for ways to connect with and invite people, let me assure you that advertising works. Advertising definitely works. I could understand the message deeply when our senior pastor recounted what Dr. Joseph Lowery said about the event : “I wish that I could have taken up an offering with such a big crowd.” Maybe the organizers of that festival wished that, too, and also they may have wished they had some way to contact the people who actually came to those kinds of rallies. That’s always our challenge, right? To find out who is there, who’s listening, who’s hearing these amazing proclamations that are coming forth. That was a big rally of 300,000 people. I had some experiences throughout my growing-up years through which I made some good conditions , between myself and my parents. We often had a Unification missionary come to our door. I lived right outside Washington, D. C. , in New Carrollton. They’d knock on the door and greet us. I once purchased a candle, a beautiful, purple brandy- snifter candle . Maybe some of you remember carrying those. I see some heads shaking. They made up a heavy box . One of you from somewhere around the country probably came to my door, and I bought that. I still have it. That was in maybe 1974 or 1975. Also when I went down to the ocean, to Ocean City, I met some people who were giving out literature and different things. I purchased, or I donated for a Yosemite Sam pin, a cartoon pin. I still have that. So all those little conditions along the way seemed to add up and make it possible for me to join our movement. I came to the Washington Monument festival because of the statement, “Greatest fireworks on Earth.” That was repeated over and over and over and over. “Meet Us at the Monument.” “See the greatest fireworks on Earth.” So we laid there on the grass after listening to a very impassioned speaker who was down on the stage, quite a long way away. If you recall that photo, you know the stage was way down there. But there was a very good sound system. There was no video at that time, but I could hear this impassioned speaker speaking in a foreign language I couldn’t understand, and I was surrounded by all these interracial, international people in the crowd. I was just a white kid from the suburbs in Maryland. I’d never been around that kind of community before. So for me it was mind-opening. Over on the side there was a group of individuals who had red armbands and headbands and a big flag with a hammer and sickle on it. They were making a little ruckus over there. I was watching them, kind of curious, thinking, “W hat’s this all about?” Eventually the Park Police brought them out. So I came there, and I left . No one knew that I came. But somehow at least I learned our True Father ’s name, Rev. Sun Myung Moon. I learned that through the media beforehand and through attending the event, and it stuck with me. Learning about the Breaking News Eventually, Jonathan Diamond and Luis Patino, witnessed to one of my friends, Camille Lloyd . Yes, is that Mike? Mike Diamond is a budding ballroom dancer here. He’s the son of Jonathan and his wife. Jonathan is a very persistent guy, and I’m glad that he is . He did a one-on-one kind of presentation with my friend: Overnight he taught the entire Principle. That was his style, just to give and give and give and pour it all out. Eventually she came to the church. She knew me a little bit and at an Aerosmith concert in Washington, D. C. , ( i t was my last concert in that realm of my life) she outlined on a napkin the ideals of the Principle of Creation and then the Fall of Man. It stuck with me. I said, “I t sounds logical; it feels true.” So eventually, knowing that I had some money because I was working a fairly good job, she asked for some money to pay for her workshop, to be able to attend a seven-day seminar. I gave her the money and I guess that’s another example of the kind of the good conditions that we lay as we’re going along in life. W hile she was at that workshop, I kept getting phone calls at my home. This was long before cell phones, even before beepers , for most people. I would get phone calls inviting me to dinner. “Why don’t you come over to dinner?” This sister, Laura – Taylor at that time, now Hiyashi – was inviting me to dinner continually, and two or three times I said, “W ell, I’ll think about it.” Finally I said I would come, but actually I was way, way down by Annapolis on the South River, water-skiing at that time. It was right around this time of the year and I eventually picked up a pay phone, called her, and said, “I’m sorry, I said I was coming but I can’t.” That happened twice, but on the third time I finally showed up at Upshur House in Washington, D. C. , and I ended up staying for the weekend. As they say, “ The rest is history.” I’ll mention one of my experiences on the first night at Upshur House . They put me up in a bedroom right next to the prayer room . Wow. Brothers and sisters at that time were coming into the prayer room, and I could hear them praying . I was in an adjoining room, and the crack under the door was very thick . Later I learned this was True Parents’ residence when they stayed in Washington . The intensity of their prayer and their concern for me really moved me. It kept me up all night. Right around dawn, I had a dream and I heard a knock. I think it was in the dream. There was a door, but I think it was in the dream. The door opened, and Jesus was standing there. He said, “I’m glad that you found a good home.” One of the things I learned through thinking back on how I came to connect with our True Parents is that trying three times to get hold of somebody is important. Another lesson is that it doesn’t have to be very much of a professional situation that is set up. My weekend workshop consisted of somebody putting a videotape in the video machine and sitting there with me. That guy went to sleep, so I laid on the floor because I hadn’t slept all night . People had been praying. I laid on the floor for what must have been a couple of hours. But I guess subliminally I got the message. I think the main thing is, just let’s do it. Let’s share the breaking news with people in whatever way is possible. It will work. Matched by the Ultimate Matchmaker To fast -forward a little bit, again, right around this time in 1982, 30 years ago, I was called to come forward to prepare for the possible Matching and Blessing. As y ou know, our True Parents are the ultimate matchmakers. Now there’s match.com and different things that are becoming very popular, but True Parents are the ultimate matchmakers in the world. The only thing I knew at that time about matchmaking was from “Fiddler on the Roof,” the movie or the play . “Matchmaker, matchmaker, make me a match.” So I envisioned it would be something like that, but it was actually right over here in the New Yorker Hotel in the Grand Ballroom. I know many of you ha ve experienced that. Coming in there, I was 23 years old and three years in our movement. I’m the kind of person who usually likes to sit in the back and just watch what’s going on, to see what’s happening and see where I can fit in . I t was sometime after lunch. Several Japanese ladies came tearfully scurrying into the room. They sat there, and our True Father was going around and talking to people . All of a sudden he reached through the crowd. I was standing about three rows deep. He reached through, pulled me out, brought me over, stood my future wife Kumiko up, and asked her, “H ow old are you?” Then he asked me. Then he said to me in English, “Y ou take care of her. She’s very smart.” Every day I’m learning how true that statement is . She’s much smarter than me. I love you, Kumiko. She had applied for the matching two other times , but again, this victory came on the third try to make it happen. So I’m grateful for our True Parents and for everything that they have done for us. That’s hard to remember, 30 years ago. Let me read these words from our True Father . It’s from “The Way of the Ocean.” How does true love begin? Does it begin among brothers or friends? The origin of true love comes from God. Therefore, the fundamental and basic relationship of mankind is to be united with God. God and man. However, when you say mankind, you mean both men and women. The most dramatic relationship happens between men and women. When that relationship is centered upon God, that is the trinity of true love. God, man and woman. This is the basic and most essential relationship which fulfills all of mankind's needs. I won’t go completely into the rest of our family’s story, but we have four great sons. My wife would say, “O h, boy, four great boys!” The youngest one is getting ready to graduate from high school next week . We’re all happy to be working together. I know for myself I couldn’t be doing what I’m doing as the district pastor but for the support of my family, especially Kumiko, who takes care of all of the family needs . I’m again really grateful for that. I’m also grateful for True Parents putting us together. Through the years our interactions have helped me a lot in understanding the flow of the providence, which we’ve read about in some of the Peace Messages and heard Father talk about – coming from East to West, across Europe and to America, and then making a big circle back through Japan and breaking down the barriers there. I feel like our marriage blessings are an opportunity to break down the cross-cultural barriers and bring harmony and peace to this world . “A Kind of a Waterman” For part of my sermon , I’d like to reflect on a bit of my life. I had the opportunity to share my testimony with True Parents in Kodiak, Alaska, back in 1992. T o do that with True Father sitting there in the midst of a small gathering after he asked everyone to share their testimony made me feel when I talked with him directly that I saw in True Father a mirror of my own physical dad . When I was growing up, we had a lathe in the basement of our house that we used for both work and play. When I heard the stories about Father focusing on the lathe with our members building the base for different industries that are now providing support for our movement in Korea as part of the Tongil Foundation, I expressed to Father that I felt a complete synergy between him and my father. I also felt this connection in the way that my father and I went fishing together. I grew up on the lower Potomac in the Chesapeake Bay area. I grew up as a kind of a waterman down there where we went fishing. Even though my parents came from land-locked areas in Missouri and Pennsylvania, for some reason they bought a boat. So we lived on that boat for every weekend that I can remember in my early teens, from 10 years old on. We lived on that boat, fished on that boat, fished and ate dinner, and then threw an anchor out in the cove, and we slept on the boat. We got up the next day and did the same thing again. It was an amazing experience, and through that I could have an opportunity to connect with my own physical parents . I learned a lot of heart and tradition from them. We didn’t go to church so much. I think like many people in America we considered ourselves Christian but we only maybe prayed at Thanksgiving and went to church maybe on Christmas or Easter time. But I felt my parents were giving me a sense of religion within my heart. I call that the Waterman’s Creed. A Master of Tea When I met Kumiko, my wife, and we started talking, I gradually learned a little bit more about her background . She studied to be a tea master; she studied the way of tea. I have learned that the way of tea connects with the basic principles. Wa is the state of harmony and beauty that creates the feeling of goodness. Kei is the attitude of respect for all things. Sei is purification. Jyaku is like a level of enlightenment when we are in oneness with universal principle. At this stage it is like tranquility within our heart. That sounds like the right place to be. We’d like to be able to live that kind of way of the tea. It’s probably healthier than my side, where Chesapeake Bay crab cakes are my thing. But Kumiko studied to become a master of the way of tea. I have seen videos from Korea in which our international president, Rev. Hyung Jin Moon, visits tea shops and also he visits families and loves to serve them a cup of tea . That kind of tranquility and that essence of the way of tea is something that I always try to look for within myself. My wife spent hours and hours as a part of a team learning to be tea masters. This art form involves about 200 different procedures required to prepare to serve that cup of tea in the right way. All of that training is cultivating the heart of attendance, the heart of love that goes beyond yourself because in each step you’re thinking only about how to prepare this as an offering of attendance to the person you’re there with. That, I think, is the essence of what we’re learning even from the True Children here in our movement at this time. They show us that even in the way they’re attending True Parents in Lake Tahoe . They show us t h e heart of wanting to be there to serve and attend. Kumiko never thought she would be serving as a tea master in America, s o she has been surprised to find that her hobby is now fulfilling a purpose by bringing peace to the diplomatic corps in Washington, D. C. The different embassy communities in Washington, D. C. , can be very political and very unstable – anything can happen at any time . T hose officials can be powerfully moved when they come to share in a cup of tea and experience this very impassioned, attending heart . “Party for God” Our hobbies, anything that we’re passionate about, can probably make a difference to the world if we can create it toward the bigger good . Our sister Heather Thalheimer expressed this to the UTS graduates yesterday . Following your passion is good. One professor in Harvard talked about this, saying that following your passion is good, but reaching out for a bigger purpose is even more important because then following your passion is not as completely self-centered ; it’s offering it up to the higher and bigger purpose. Then you can bring change in this world. Just as our international president has gone around visiting the different families in Korea and in Japan, our senior pastor here has done the same in the United States. She moved my heart back in 2009 with the first July 4th party that she hosted in the family area in the New Yorker Hotel. Our district pastor team was invited to share in a July 4th barbecue. We didn’t know what we were coming to. We were just coming along, thinking it was another one of our meetings. But actually we were brought right into her family; we were brought right there. The kids were forming the burgers, making the chili sauce, and flipping them. We had a party that just felt like we were part of the family. Seeing and experiencing that love and seeing the dancing – t hat was the first time I had the opportunity to see and connect with the dancing from our young people, especially from Ariana. It took me out of my own box, my own shell, or you might say the rut that I often can get in . So I’m grateful for that opportunity. Then, who knew that the next part ies would come along? The Halloween parties, the galas, the Super Bowl party, the graduation parties. Eventually, I started thinking, “W hat is this, a party church? It’s a party church.” Then I thought, “W ell, heck, why not? I’d like to join the kind of church that is a party church.” I think all of you would. So eventually I figured out that I’ve got to do something like that. I love this one song: “E very day I’m shuffling, shuffling. E very day I’m shuffling.” The “Party Rock Anthem.” I love that. That’s about as good as I dance, by the way. But why not? Why not be a party church? Party for God. The purpose of life is joy, right? It took me a little while to get to that point. I have to commend Rev. David Rendel. He’s not here today but he helped me go over that hill of all those galas coming along, but now I love them. I love the idea . A part of me is ready for the party church because I come from a hillbilly background in some ways . You can probably tell from my accent. When I’m talking to new people, they sometimes look at me and say, “W here are you from?” I have a mixture of a few different accents . But it was Rev erend Rendel especially who helped me understand that it is not just about producing the programs and events, but it’s about the joy and the experience that each person gets. Just like when I attended the Washington Monument rally without any of our members knowing it, we never know who we’re speaking to when we’re inviting them to those kinds of programs, but that unknown person can gain something there. I promise not to do the shuffle up here very much. I do know a few people who can do it and help me through it. Connecting to True Parents and True Children I also want to highlight that we’re trying to honor our traditions and put into practice daily the practical applications of Divine Principle that we learn, while hav ing fun doing it. In my experience, because I had a chauffeur’s license in the Washington, D. C. , area and I grew up around there, whenever True Parents would come to Washington, I would often be called to do some driving . That lends itself to being in some very intimate settings, to understand the different give and take that’s going on behind the scenes, so to speak, at these major events. Remembering our international president, again, we have heard our senior pastor, his big sister, say that she calls him “Lovey. ” When I heard her start calling him that, I remembered back to tho se times when I would be behind the curtain with them, or in the car. He was constantly bringing the sense of joy and uplifting the atmosphere. Most of us can be kind of heavy around our True Parents at those kinds of events, but the True Children can bring a sense of attendance and uplifting that is just amazing to see. And I really encourage each of you, if you get the chance in these next few months and this year, please, please find a way to go to H oon Dok Hae: these morning gatherings for reading and studying right at the feet of True Parents. It’s like being there with Jesus and listening to the parables that he’s speaking and receiving guid ance directly. It’s important for us the founding members of our faith in America to be able to connect both with our True Parents and through the True Children, who have something that is beyond our own narrow comprehension. True Children have that personal relationship with True Parents and with each other that we can connect with. Through our attending the True Children, we also can gain the ability to guide and raise up the people next to us, our own family and friends, to understand th e heart of attendance. It takes time, and it takes effort to be able to do that. Just as the tea master has to learn the proper procedures and heart of attendance behind presenting the tea in order to make the environment full of love and respect, we need to cultivate these capacities in ourselves so we can pass these on to new people as they come to understand what we’re about. Building a Ministry with Fisherman As a final reading I’ve selected a passage from the Gospel of Matthew that may help explain why I felt God called me, as a waterman, a fisherman. And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers . And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. And they straightway left their nets, and followed him. And going on from thence, he saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them. And they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed him. Jesus called himself a good shepherd ; and God in the Old Testament called people who were shepherds to help establish the tradition of the Israelites . But these words , which come right after Jesus had gone through the three temptations and also right after John the Baptist had been put in prison, inform us that as Jesus was stepping out to establish his new church, he didn’t call shepherds. Jesus went directly to the fishermen. Fishermen go out in all kinds of weather. They go out every day, or they don’t get to eat . They are a special type of person that endures things but also is committed to bringing in the harvest. As disciples, fishermen are always reaching out to bring in new people. W e’re called to reach out to share the breaking news and bring new people into this incredible ministry of Lovin’ Life that is growing strongly here in New York. The team here is amazing, and they need all of you around the country to help further this ministry in a way that is new and exciting. Fishermen never know what they’re going to catch, unlike the shepherd who sees his flock all around him. I know we’re going to see some of the winners of the Peace King fishing tournament, but if you’ve ever gone out fishing, you know that you never know what you’re going to get when you go out on the water with your fishing rod. You can’t see what’s in the bottom, but you have to go out in faith. You have to be able to do that. Jesus himself called those people, the fishermen, to come in and help him build his ministry. We’re like that, especially our founding members here. We don’t have to worry. God will send those people who are chosen : just like God sent me. I didn’t know it when I was laying those different conditions , but God somehow sent me into the waters of the Divine Principle and then helped me understand where I fit in, where I could make myself an offering . Heung Kook Stephens’ Commencement Speech O ur senior pastor on Mother’s Day shared with us that we need to learn to celebrate life, both within our church and outside in the greater community. One of our ACLC pastors in the Baltimore area used to give me similar advice. He would always share with me, “W hy don’t the Blessed Central Families just go have a picnic outside and let the world see what you’re all about?” We all together are amazing people and we have something that we can offer as we’re celebrating life together with our True Parents and making a difference in this world. To demonstrate that, I’d like to conclude with a video of one of the graduates in the Washington area. His name is Heung Kook Stephens. Some of you probably know him. I don’t know if he’s here in the audience in New York. I don’t want to embarrass him too much, but he’s a great beatboxer and hip-hop dancer. Sometime you’ll be able to see him. He graduated from the University of Maryland at College Park with a Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering, with a grade point average of 4.0. That’s our goal, right, Victoria? He has set a wonderful example. Heung Kook served in Peru with the Engineers Without Borders, and amazingly he did all of this while he was one of our great youth ministers in the Washington, D C , area and connected there. So let’s watch this video of his commencement speech. [Video played .] HEUNG KOOK STEPHENS: President Loh, distinguished guests, and most of all, fellow graduates, welcome. I would like to share something about compassion and then tell a story that means a lot to me. Compassion for me is the motivation of our hearts to be moved to action. I believe compassion is necessary for a successful life and career. However, compassion is a difficult thing to master. Just like our mind, our hearts need time and effort to mature. I believe we need to develop both our technical skills and develop what I call our “heartistic” skills. We need to grow a mind that can help others, but also grow a heart that truly wants to help others. A few years ago I traveled with the university’s chapter of Engineers Without Borders to implement a water purification system in a Peruvian mountain village called Campone . It was a great opportunity to get real engineering experience and add to my resume. However, I did not expect that it would become an opportunity to develop those heartistic skills. One day a group of us were walking down a road in the village when a young boy came riding by on his bike. We greeted each other, “H ola. Buenos dias,” and he biked ahead around the corner. A moment later we saw the boy again, this time standing next to his bike, which appeared to be broken. He called us over, and we saw that the chain had just fallen off. While fixing it for him, we learned his name was Reynaldo . After we put the chain back on, Reynaldo said, “G racias,” and rode off again. A few days later we were doing a large excavation elsewhere in the village. We invited the community to help out with shovels and picks. I was working hard to do my share when some little kid kept running around me and making obnoxious noises. I looked up and saw that it was Reynaldo. He was playing around while the rest of us were working. During a break I decided to have some fun with Reynaldo. For those who know me, I’m into hip-hop and I love to break dance, so during lunch I tried to teach Reynaldo how to beatbox, along with some dance moves. You guys know beatboxing, right? It goes like – [makes beatbox sounds ]. Reynaldo, he was actually pretty good so we entertained ourselves dancing to our own beatboxing. On our last day in Campone we were waiting for a bus to pick us up when I saw a little figure running toward us in the distance. Of course, it was none other than Reynaldo. I could not believe how cool this kid was. Just for fun, I put my stuff down and started to break dance my way towards him, and he copied every one of my moves as he was running, even the handstand. When we finally met up, I gave him a big hug. I told him that we were leaving and he responded with a sad face. I tried in my best Spanish to tell him I would miss him, too, but then the bus came and I had to go. As we drove away, I looked back and thought, “Reynaldo is such an awesome kid. I hope he grows up to be an amazing person.” Then it dawned on me how terrible it would be if he got sick from drinking contaminated water. What if he wasn’t able to go to school or later help provide for his family because he was ill? It would break my heart. It was those kinds of experiences that keep things in perspective for me and are some of the reasons why I want to always do my best. Reynaldo, and so many others like him, deserve the best. I believe in the infinite potential in everyone. We can all be great, either as scholars, professionals, or even just as individuals. But to make a big impact we will need capable minds and compassionate hearts. We need both because just knowing something does not always help someone, and good intentions alone do not always do much either. I want to congratulate everyone here on reaching a huge milestone and I want to encourage all of us to continue developing our technical skills so we can overcome the challenges to whatever we are motivated to do. But let us also continue developing our heartistic skills, growing our hearts so we are motivated to use our expertise to offer the best. Why is this important? Because what people need more than anything else is to be acknowledged and valued in a way that shows they are worth our full effort. Only after developing those heartistic skills will we be able to find greater success, but by then our success won’t really be the point anyway. Thank you. [End video ]. REV. FRANCIS: What a beautiful speech and beautiful connection with his audience ! He was speaking to 10,000 people at the Comcast Center at the University of Maryland. He was chosen to represent the entire student class. I hope you saw the church symbol on his cap. That’s a novel idea. “We Are Blessed” So to conclude, our Washington, D. C. , community led by Pastor Zagery Oliver and his wife Fumi is working to establish something new there. We have a beautiful church building that is getting ready to celebrate 35 years since it was dedicated by our True Parents. We want to turn it into a fantastic learning center, similar to what 43rd Street is here. We need help from all of us across the country to understand the best way to use that facility that is an important part of our True Parents’ legacy . Many of you have come to the Washington Church for different programs. Some of you have sung there with the New Hope Singers; some of you were there when True Parents danced on the stage back in 1977. With Rev. Oliver’s leadership we’re working to formulate a plan to turn it into a state-of-the-art learning center. When I came here to New York, I went to that McDonald’s across the street. I was blown away by what they did inside there. It was such an ancient building before, but now it’s such a lovely cafe that it attracts me to just want to go in and sit and enjoy it, with the jazz music playing . We want our church building in Washington to feel as comforting, warm, loving, and professionalized. I n the coming months, as we formulate a plan for that, Rev. Oliver and the team will be concerned about how we can best make a new start with that facility that is so precious to our True Parents in the Washington, D C, area. Many of the other properties in the area were kind of sold ou t from under our True Parents , so we especially want to assure that the church building fulfills its valuable potential for serving all the new people that we’re meeting daily, even in th at area. J ust as Heung Kook (HK) was expressing in his speech , we all have some infinite potential, but we need to have both capable minds and compassionate hearts. We didn’t see it in the video, but at the end of the speech the president of the university broke down a bit and cried. He said, “HK, you don’t know it, but I’m from Peru. That little boy could have been me.” That was the president of the University of Maryland speaking. Then he turned to the audience and said, “Y ou don’t know it, but we are all blessed. We are all blessed. We are blessed, whether we have a degree or not.” Just like our senior pastor said in her statement that I read at the beginning , “W e are blessed.” We need to be the ones who through our infinite potential – whether it’s our hobbies like being a tea master, or we’re a truck driver, a student, fisherman, or whatever – find a way to give out our blessings and help other people realize that they are blessed. We have something that we can give to God and to his children that will help us live as one family under God. So I just want to encourage you to live your compassionate way. And I’d like to thank this team for making me sound a little bit good, and maybe even look as good as I can look on screen. God bless you, and have a wonderful week.


15. The Abomination of Desolation (Part 1): Exposing Jesus Sananda, the False Prophet: the Fake Son of God (Yahuah)

The Abomination of Desolation (Part 1): Exposing Jesus Sananda, the False Prophet: the Fake Son of God (Yahuah)

Video #1 description info for: “The Abomination of Desolation: Exposing the False Prophet – Jesus Sananda” 1. Exposing the Savior’s (Son of Yahuah’s) real name, YAHUSHUA : www.eliyah.com/yahushua.html 2. The Creator’s real name is Yahuah (Yah) not “God”. God is a pagan derived word: http://yahwehskingdom.com/yahuah.html http://wahiduddin.net/words/name_god.htm http://www.revelations.org.za/Elohim.htm http://www.thebodyofmessiah.com/authors/yahuah.htm 3. Who they call “Joshua” & “Jesus” today in the churches and in the Bible is WRONG. Both names should be spelled as such: Yahushua. Here’s the proof explained here: http://www.thewayprepared.com/studies/joshua-and-caleb.html http://theassemblyofyahowahtheeternal.com/printerversion/satan+jesus/p_godlordtitles.pdf 4. Some Bible verses I read in my video in correlation with the Creator’s real name: Isaiah quotes Satan saying and calling the Father the “Most High” here In Isaiah 14:14 (NASV): “I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.” In the book of Daniel, even Nebuchadnezzar called the Creator, “Most High”: Daniel 3:26 Then Nebuchadnezzar went near the mouth of the burning fiery furnace and spoke saying, “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abeg-Nego, servants of the MOST HIGH God, come out, and come here. Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednago came from the midst of the fire. Also in Daniel 4:17 This decision is by the decree of the watchers, and the sentence by the word of the holy ones, in order that the living may know that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, gives it to whomever He will, and sets over it the lowest of men. Daniel 4:24-25This is the interpretation, O king, and this is the decree of the Most High, which has come upon my lord the king: They shall drive you from men, your dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field, and they shall make you eat grass like oxen. They shall wet you with the dew of heaven, and seven times shall pass over you, till you know that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomever He chooses. Daniel 4:34 And at the end of the time, I Nebuchadnezzar, lifted my eyes to heaven, and my understanding returned to me; and I blessed the Most High and praised and honored Him who lives forever. Isaiah 12:2 (NKJV) Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; ‘ For YAH, the LORD, is my strength and song; He also has become my salvation.’ 5.Why was the “Book of Enoch” covered up by the church? Study the truth about the Book of Enoch below. It’s easy to see why they did not put it in the Bible…Satan had to hide Yah (the Creator’s) truth and deceive many! Read here: http://www.sherryshriner.com/church-coverup.htm “Age of Deceit” movie touches on Enoch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wjmFm8PIz8M Another great movie to watch, “The Fallen Angels & Nephilim” explains about Enoch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B40mp7Kxf_M&feature=related You can also read the Book of Enoch online here (This version was translated by R.H. Charles in 1917): http://www.sacred-texts.com/bib/boe/ Also, “The Secrets of Enoch” another one of Enoch’s books that is good to read, and you can study it here (it’s the version translated by Richard Laurence), whish there is no different than the one translated by R.H. Charles): http://reluctant-messenger.com/2enoch01-68.htm Enoch calls Yahuah (Yahuah is the Creator for the newcomers), he calls the Yahuah the Most High….READ “THE BOOK OF ENOCH”!!! It’s not that hard to understand if you ask the Most High (Yahuah) for the truth in all things! Enoch & Elijah were the only 2 men who did not see death in ALL OF MANKIND…OUT OF ALL OF HIS PEOPLE .

The truth about Constantine and the Council of Nicaea and King James : Great info about the Book of Enoch and how Emperor Constantine contaminated and abolished the true teachings of Yahushua (the Son of the Creator) and the His apostles: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1hYcJ28IKYc http://babylon-the-great.xanga.com/674811257/item/ http://www.rense.com/general66/hide.htm King James I Compiled by: www.FreedomSpirit.com James VI & I (19 June 1566 – 27 March 1625) was King of Scots as James VI from 1567 to 1625, and King of England and Ireland as James I from 1603 to 1625. From 1590 to 1592, King James personally oversaw the trials of many suspected witches in Scotland. Theory of monarchy In 1597–98, James wrote two works, The True Law of Free Monarchies and Basilikon Doron (Royal Gift), in which he established an ideological base for monarchy. In the True Law, he sets out the divine right of kings, explaining that for Biblical reasons kings are higher beings than other men, though "the highest bench is the sliddriest to sit upon".[34] The document proposes an absolutist theory of monarchy, by which a king may impose new laws by royal prerogative but must also pay heed to tradition and to God, who would "stirre up such scourges as pleaseth him, for punishment of wicked kings".[35] Basilikon Doron, written as a book of instruction for the four-year-old Prince Henry, provides a more practical guide to kingship.[36] Despite banalities and sanctimonious advice,[37] the work is well written, perhaps the best example of James' prose.[38] James' advice concerning parliaments, which he understood as merely the king's "head court", foreshadows his difficulties with the English Commons: "Hold no Parliaments," he tells Henry, "but for the necesitie of new Lawes, which would be but seldome".[39] In the True Law James maintains that the king owns his realm as a feudal lord owns his fief, because kings arose "before any estates or ranks of men, before any parliaments were holden, or laws made, and by them was the land distributed, which at first was wholly theirs. And so it follows of necessity that kings were the authors and makers of the laws, and not the laws of the kings."[40] Although the concept of the Oath of Allegiance was founded upon the principles of the Magna Carta, its importance in the early modern period was brought to the fore by James. The Oath of Allegiance was required initially of those suspected of Catholicism, but extended in 1610 to virtually everybody over the age of eighteen.[41] The use of the Oath directly underpinned King James' and his supporters' defence of the kings of Europe against papal pretensions to an indirect deposing power. [42] Gunpowder plot Main article: Gunpowder Plot On the eve of the state opening of the second session of James' first Parliament, on 5 November 1605, a soldier named Guy Fawkes was discovered in the cellars of the parliament buildings guarding a pile of wood, not far from 36 barrels of gunpowder with which he intended to blow up Parliament House the following day and cause the destruction, as James put it, "not only...of my person, nor of my wife and posterity also, but of the whole body of the State in general".[57] The sensational discovery of the Catholic Gunpowder Plot, as it quickly became known, aroused a mood of national relief at the delivery of the king and his sons which Salisbury exploited to extract higher subsidies from the ensuing Parliament than any but one granted to Elizabeth.[58] Personal relationships Throughout his life James was rumoured to have had love affairs with male courtiers, in particular Esmé Stewart, 6th Lord d'Aubigny (later 1st Duke of Lennox); Robert Carr, 1st Earl of Somerset; and George Villiers, 1st Duke of Buckingham. In his own time he was notorious for his male loves, and it was said of him that Elizabeth was King, now James is Queen (Rex fuit Elizabeth, nunc est regina Jacobus) referring to his position of power in post-Elizabethan times. However, this was often misread to mean other things.[91] Some modern historians disagree: "The evidence of his correspondence and contemporary accounts have led some historians to conclude that the king was homosexual or bisexual. The King James Version ("KJV") of the Bible was dedicated to him, being published in 1611 as a result of the Hampton Court Conference which he had convened to resolve issues with translations then being used. This translation of the Bible is still in widespread use today. During the reign of James, the English colonization of North America started its course. In 1607, Jamestown was founded in Virginia, and in 1620 Plymouth in the Massachusetts Bay Colony. During the next 150 years, England would fight with Spain, the Netherlands, and France for control of the continent. 6. The truth about the Creation http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LWUO62ghuQY 7. Here is a list of all the apostles’ names: 1 Simon(who is called Peter), 2 Andrew (simon’s brother, 3 James (son of Zebedee), 4 John (James brother), 5 Philip, 6 Bartholomew, 7 Thomas, 8 Matthew, 9 James (son of Alphaeus), 10 Lebbaeus (whose surname was Thaddaeus), 11 Simon (the Canaanite), 12 Matthias (who replaced Judas). QUESTION: Where are the books of these other men…where’s Andrew’s book? Where’s Philip’s book? Where’s Bartholomew’s ? Where’s Thomas’s book? And Lebbaeus’s??? And Matthias’s book…where are they?!?!?!?! Oh…but they put “Paul’s” writings in….Just something to think about. 8. So, ALL the places…all these colleges, universities, schools, and seminaries all around the world that the Christian preachers and leaders of today attend to teach the Bible….ALL OF THEM ARE CONTROLLED BY THE COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS Who is the Council on Foreign Relations (aka CFR)?: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aO8OnxEld3M http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XxEVen82hoE The Council on Foreign Relations is pulling many strings behind the churches of America today.

Of course, these lists are old and have not been updated. You can personally research each person yourself to see, they are CFR members or once were….and they are all involved in our colleges and universities…this includes so-called “Christian” schools and seminaries as well.

This list is from 2007, so you can imagine how many more our today!! http://ctwilcox.com/CFRroster.pdf John 8:32 “And you will know the truth and the truth will make you free.” (NASB) Yahushua said this! I read from Matthew Chapter 24 (I didn’t read all of it), but please feel free to do so, as I will be talking more about this in my 2nd video when I expose more of the false prophet, Sananda Jesus (aka Jesus Sananda) and the many deceptions that are coming our way in the near future. Matthew 24 1 Then Jesus went out and departed from the temple, and His disciples came up to show Him the buildings of the temple. 2 And Jesus said to them, “Do you not see all these things? Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another, that shall not be thrown down.” 3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” 4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all[a]these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences,[b] and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. 11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come. 15 “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’[c] spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), 16 “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. 18 And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes. 19 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! 20 And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath. 21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened. 23 “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. 24 For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you beforehand. 26 “Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it. 27 For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 28 For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together. 29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. 32 “Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. 33 So you also, when you see all these things, know that it[d] is near—at the doors! 34 Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place. 35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away. 36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven,[e] but My Father only. 37 But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 38 For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39 and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 40 Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left. 42 Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour[f] your Lord is coming. 43 But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. 44 Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect. 45 “Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his master made ruler over his household, to give them food in due season? 46 Blessed is that servant whom his master, when he comes, will find so doing. 47 Assuredly, I say to you that he will make him ruler over all his goods. 48 But if that evil servant says in his heart, ‘My master is delaying his coming,’ [g] 49 and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunkards, 50 the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him and at an hour that he is not aware of, 51 and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. I also read from Daniel 9:27, Daniel 11:31, and Daniel 12:11 (which all connect with Matthew 24). Daniel 9:27 27 Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; But in the middle of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, Even until the consummation, which is determined, Is poured out on the desolate.” Daniel 11:31 31 And forces[a] shall be mustered by him, and they shall defile the sanctuary fortress; then they shall take away the daily sacrifices, and place there the abomination of desolation. Daniel 12:11 11 “And from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away, and the abomination of desolation is set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days.

Christ, Our Lord, Is Among Us NOW!

We are in the End Times, and Christ has returned and now among us! The time is coming, are you prepared? Matthew 24:36-44 (CEB) [The Coming of the Human One] “But nobody knows when that day or hour will come, not the heavenly angels and not the Son. Only the Father knows. As it was in the time of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Human One. In those days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day Noah entered the ark. They didn’t know what was happening until the flood came and swept them all away. The coming of the Human One will be like that. At that time there will be two men in the field. One will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding at the mill. One will be taken and the other left. Therefore, stay alert! You don’t know what day the Lord is coming. But you understand that if the head of the house knew at what time the thief would come, he would keep alert and wouldn’t allow the thief to break into his house. Therefore, you also should be prepared, because the Human One will come at a time you don’t know.” ☟SONGS FEATURED IN THIS EPISODE☟ Highly Suspect – My Name is Human ☟PLEASE DONATE☟ Lord RayEl: Ra-El.org/donations.html P.C.

Unicycles 81 :: City Life [Stubborn Summer Mixtape]

A mixtape for a stubborn Summer. http://goddamncobras.com/uni081/ Download: http://ge.tt/3nw3Sqg/v/0 vxh video mix: http://community.vhx.tv/#!/jbls/uni081 A Summer that changes its mind about showing up. A Summer that shifts, mid-Summing. A Summer that starts as one day, in silver light, and becomes another, with a different shade of silver. As we approach Summer, we are reminded of the way its days sometimes are: long days that quickly change, a twist ending for the sky. Our hearts watch the clouds, they swerve with the weather, they do what they're shown. Summers give us something to live up to: a destiny, a fate. We will be at our fullest, in body and indigo. We will stride into the tide. We will sing the rest of the song. We will find the puny needle or fire the long harpoon. We will go home, if that's what we are to do. Oh, believe me darling I will hold out hope. We will be drunk on palm wine, even though we have never drunk palm wine. We will loll and then shoot like an arrow into the heart of the waning day. These arrows, they make the best sound in the world. They sound beautiful and hapless. They sound dizzy. They remind us of our greatest joys and most witless blues. Imperfect, expert, lo-fi, hi-fi, distorted and clear, oh how many reversing right yeses they scream out. This Summer is a city life scavenger hunt. Hidden things we will find, unknowingly: a millisecond hand, for a hummingbird swatch plaid GPS, breast-pocket beep-beep elbow nails (hawaiian design) brain thirst ***U NEED A SHOWER*** air pockets ////for keys/// screw-on leaves {if one fails...} bike-light love, p|r|e|s|s t|o a|c|t|i|v|a|t|e trigger callous...()half-moon()half-man() car muscles - ^^a black-tire affair^^ night milk ####the milk of the night, what the night makes for the taking#### ====================§==================== 1.

Married to Nancy Salas Perez, 06/23/1956 the daughter of General Rafael A. Salas Canizares, killed by Revolutionaries in 1956. He was the National Chief of Police in Cuba. 1957-1958 traveling in Western Europe. Lived in Madrid for 6 months and returned to Havana prior to the fall of the Batista Government. Due to my wife’s family attachment to the Government of Fulgencio Batista Revolutionaries looted our house on January 1, 1959 and I was forced to be present during the looting of my house. January 12, 1959 while driving to my parent’s home in the outskirts of Havana, I was kidnapped by elements of the July 26 Movement in the area of the Country Club and tied to a tree. They claimed that we had millions stashed away and they wanted $100,000 or else my mother-in-law, my wife, and I will be killed. They gave me 48 hours to get the money. A dear friend of mine Dr. Jose Roiz, a minority stockholder in one of our companies and a gun collector, upon learning about the predicament I was in offered himself with a couple of friends to set a trap up for the revolutionaries at my parent’s home. When they came for the money Jose Roiz, his friends and I engaged them in a firefight and they escaped. We hid in a couple of places, but these criminals took my father in a hostage to the Bureau of Investigations. They sent a message that they will let him go if I turned myself in. I did as requested and when they began accusing of crimes against the revolution a friend of mine and a top member of the Revolution who was visiting the police installation ordered we be set free immediately. After the above mentioned I managed to leave Cuba on April 9, 1959. In Miami, I founded the Anti-Communist Crusade, and during 1959 was arrested 11 times by the police and Sheriff in Miami. The Charge was that I was conspiring to overthrow the Government of Cuba and thus was violating the Neutrality Act. They took me to Washington and were ordered to register as an agent of foreign organization intent in the overthrow of a friendly government. I also took control of a PT boat (World War II surplus) in the Miami River and installed a Shortwave Radio Station and an Interceptor Radio Station on board the vessel. The interceptor radio station was operated to monitor the Cuban Intelligence Corps in Havana or G-2 and intercept their transmissions in Cuba. I rented a slip at Dinner Key in Coconut Grove, and every evening took off for International Waters to broadcast to Cuba. This took place until I ran out of money and was forced to transmit from the Marina in Miami. The FBI in Miami, one day alerted about the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) was coming to the boat to confiscate the radio equipment. I dismantled and hid the radio equipment. The FCC confiscated the PT boat. In addition, during the summer of 1959 I flew a couple of times to the Western region of Cuba to drop weapons and ammo in the Sierra de los Organos to guerillas fighting against the communists. These guerillas were trained by Austin Young an American and Peter Lambton a British subject that we sent to Cuba to train and assist the rebels. Peter Lambton was captured and sentenced to 15 years in prison. Furthermore, during 1959 the U.S. Government branded us with the label of Radical Elements of a Rightwing Conspiracy bent on overthrowing the Government of Cuba. However, when then President Eisenhower finally became convinced the threat posed by the Communist Government in Cuba they, I mean the U.S. Government suddenly stopped their policy of persecution and constant harassment against us and thy they started treating us as Freedom Fighters Democratic Heroes bent on liberating the oppressed people of Cuba. A 180 degrees turnaround. August 20, 1960. I left Miami for Guatemala to join the operation being organized under the sponsorship of the U.S. Government. On that particular day (I was 23 years old) I was taken to a farm in Southwest Miami, the only thing I remember is that the farm was planted with guava trees. My driver’s license and any other material that could identify all the Cubans at the place were requisitioned from us the 41 Cubans at the place. Khaki uniforms were provided to us and then at sunset we were asked to board into covered trucks, driven to an airport somewhere in the area. I suspect the Airport was the Homestead Air Force Base. In that place, we boarded a DC-6 with no markings and the windows painted black. The pilot and crew were not American but of Eastern European stock. The reason for us not carrying ID was done in case the airplane crashed into the ocean or land nobody was going to be able to identify our remains. Early the next morning we arrived in Guatemala, at San Jose Buenavista. They, the American liaison officers asked from us not to say a word, in order to avoid giving away our nationality due to our particular and uncommon accent as Cubans. We boarded a couple of Guatemalan Army buses and taken to a Coffee plantation: “Finca Helvetia” high up in the Sierra Madre Mountains of Western Guatemala, the place was right in front of Santiaguito Volcano, next to the Santa Maria Volcano. The nearest city down below was Retauleu (our Air Force Base was built next to Retauleu not far from the Pacific Coast and the Port of Champerico. In Helvetia, we got our serial numbers. They started at 2501. My serial number was 2649 and I became the 148th member of the pioneers that wanted to liberate our country from communism. From Helvetia they took me to another place in the mountains, this place became “Base Tax” our main Training Base and we built everything that was required to function as a training camp. This place was cold, particularly so during the night, several barracks for dormitory and others for classrooms were built, the Headquarters barrack and the U.S. training and supervisory personnel was built. A Chapel, a small hospital, the commissary, kitchen with mess hall, latrines, showers, and a small prison for anyone caught violating the code of military conduct. At the entrance to the Base, a large Water Tank was built and the pipe system was laid going all the way down to a river that ran about 300 meters down below. Water pumps installed and the water was able to flow down to the showers and the kitchen by gravity. We built explosives, ammo and weapons bunker away from the Base. I remember the covert names of some of the American and foreign personnel at the Camps: Col. Carl James (El Cojo), Col Valeriano (Philippine), Taylor (black American) a psychologist. We also had a few Eastern Europeans specialists in demolition, weaponry, infiltration, exfiltration, intelligence gathering, interrogation techniques, discipline of silence and field recon. We also had a Tibetan. As head of the Training Camp was Capt. Ranger Cuban Army Oscar Alfonso Carol, Jose Andreu (2501) (G-1), 1st. Lt. Cuban Army Manuel Blanco Navarro (G-2). Former first Lt. Cuban Army Jose Perez San Roman, etc. We became part of the Gray and Black Teams. The Gray Teams mission was to infiltrate Cuba and join the underground. Gather intelligence, select an objective and get ready to receive the Black Teams for operations across the Island. The Teams consisted of Team A, B, and C for Pinar del Rio in Western Cuba. Team D and E for Havana City, and Havana Countryside. Team F for Matanzas. Team G for Las Villas, Team H for Camaguey, and Teams I and J for Oriente in Eastern Cuba. Once the teams are completed then the rest of the recruits will join Team K or Task Force to attack and take over the Isle of Pines and free the political prisoners in the Island. The Air Force was to provide us with supplies by air and fire support and bombing raid over specific economic and/or military objectives. The Navy to supply, for infiltration and exfiltration and the Hospital Ship to provide medical services to the force and/or the peasants and the underground. However, once the CDRs in Cuba became operational, the original plan for the Gray and Black Teams had to be abandoned and modified with the creation of a Light Expeditionary Brigade later named: Brigada de Asalto 2506 in honor of our first casualty Carlos Rodriguez Santana “Carlay.” He died during an exploratory march in the mountains close to the Training Base when he fell off a cliff and died. December 4, 1960 the Brigade was created and about 89 individuals, among them I was separated from the Brigade to form the Infiltration Teams. The next day we left the base and were taken to San Jose Buenavista, at a cattle ranch that also had a small sugar factory to train in ambush and other tasks. After a few days in that place, we were flown to an undisclosed location in the same type of plane with no marks and windows in black. The crew the same Eastern Europeans and with joining us in the flight to nowhere (Jungles in Panama close to the Atlantic Ocean) the “Black Falcons” (from a comic strip) a Russian, a Polish, a Latvian, an Estonian, a Lithuanian, and a German a former General in the German Army specializing in interrogation techniques. At the new place, a guerilla and counter insurgency training camp in the Panama Canal Zone. we started in the the process to demilitarize our behavior, act as civilians, wake up late in the morning, dress as pleased. Go to the demolition field and do with explosives as pleased: demolish power towers, bridges, locomotives, trucks, set Improvised Explosive Devices and/or go to the firing range and play with weapons from behind the Iron Curtain, Israeli, Finnish, German, British etc. We also had class in infiltration, ex filtration, airdrops, reception committees, evasion and escape, psychological warfare, dead drops, signaling etc. Finally after Christmas in 1960, that we celebrated in the jungle and had our midnight mass. Come January 16 they briefed some of us that we did not pass mustard and it was decided to bring us back to Guatemala to join the Invasion Brigade. I was one that did not qualify to infiltrate in Cuba. That night we left the camp, said good-by to the ones remaining behind and the flight took us to the Air Force Base in Retalhuleu. The next day was spent in a barrack away from the pilots and support personnel. They informed our group that we are the ones that had been chosen to infiltrate Cuba and join the underground and the guerilla movement. That night we march to the plane at the end of the strip and much to our elation and emotional surprise, our Air Force came to us with the Cuban Flag to pay honor to the Infiltration Teams, the first ones that was going to join the fight for freedom in Cuba. The plane took us to an airstrip south of Miami, and from there to a large edification in the middle of a tomato farm. This place was large enough for us, there was a Cuban cook, no guards, a few Americans to teach us secret writing, refresh infiltration techniques, and the cover story to be used in case anyone came to the farm was as follows: We are part of a group of young Cuban doctors sponsored by Cuban doctors in the United States to help us pass the Foreign Board examination. I was assigned to the First Infiltration Team to go into Cuba. Moreover, the Team was made of Jorge Rojas Castellanos (Josue) as Team Leader, Jorge Gutierrez Izaguirre (sheriff) Radio-operator, Jorge Recarey Ubieta (Julio Cesar) Weapons Officer, Antonio Abel Perez Martin (abuelo) Psychological Warfare, and Jose Regalado Santana (Juan Rodriguez Soto) Intelligence Officer. I was 23 years old. We made four trips to Cuba. Taken by car to Key West to the pier of the former Havana Ferry, the boats used owned by Santiago Babun and his brothers. The two boats used for our mission, one was the “Wasp” painted in black and very fast. The crew consisted of Kikio Llanso as Captain, Rolando (Musculito) Martinez {One if not the most brave and valiant individual I have ever met}. Roberto (el ancla) Varona, and Castellanos as radio-operator of the Wasp. The other, smaller, boat was the Rifer II and the Captain was Capt. Villa, a Spaniard. The first mission we had to come back because there was no one waiting with the reception committee in the Coast. The Place was called “The Punto Fundora” chosen by Jorge Fundora (Patricio). The area in the North Coast of the Havana Province close to the border with Matanzas to the East. The real name “Puerto Escondido” a small beach with a couple of beach houses near the mouth of a small river. In the background hills leading to the Via Blanca (the four lane highway connecting Havana with Varadero Beach. Annexed to this you will find a detailed narrative of our mission in memory of Jorge Rojas Castellanos (executed by firing squad at the age of 26 in the Cabana Fortress In the sunset hour of 09/22/1961). Coming back to Miami. After the time as guest of the Italian Ambassador in Havana, we left for Panama. Jorge Recarey, Antonio Abel Perez Martin, and myself from the Infiltration Team #1 at Punto Fundora. The Communists had taken prisoners Jorge Rojas and Jorge (Sheriff) Gutierrez Izaguirre. Jorge Rojas was executed and Sheriff gravely wounded in combat and sent to prison for 17 years. We left Cuba via Mexico for Panama and after over a month in Panama, we flew to Miami with a Visa Waiver to join our families. Once in Miami in October 11, 1061 I joined a group of members of Brigade 2506 under Roberto Perez San Roman Commander of the Heavy Weapons Battalion at the Bay of Pigs. With just two weeks of being in Miami, I was asked to lead a Commando Team to sabotage the cable car that took copper and gold mineral from the Matahambre Mines in Northern Pinar Del Rio Province to the Port of Santa Lucia. The mission was to land at the mouth of the Santa Lucia River with a silent outboard engine Catamaran and wade the river uphill to the towers from which the cable in use to carry the mineral to the Port was located. The explosive to be used was a “form charge with a clock tied to the cable that attached the towers to the group. After setting up the charges go back to the Catamaran and back to the mother ship. The training and test prior to the mission took place in the Everglades about an hour by light plane from Miami. We spent a couple of days working with the blueprints of the towers, a replica of the towers and the cables used and the support of the former mining engineers that worked at Matahambre before the nationalization by the Communist Government. Something was about to happen that made me resign from this mission. The American liaison with the CIA came to me and told me. Well Jose, we are going to take you back to Miami, to your homes and wait there to be contacted after the ship that will take you people is repaired. I replied back, to Miami we are not going back, this will be like telling Fidel Castro everything about our mission. There is no security in Miami, from day one there has not been any security in Miami. The whole town has been penetrated with agents from Cuba, the U.S. media, The Miami Herald, and la Madre de los tomates. No sir, we are not going back. However, Jose, he replied we have to go back to Miami. In addition, to Miami we went back. The next day while walking to have breakfast at Casa Badia in 8th Street. I came across Bernard Barker (Watergate) and who was the liaison used by the Mr. Ralph Berle Operational Head for the CIA to bring Manuel Artime (Civilian Head of the Invasion) to the U.S. he also was instrumental in recruiting Carol, Blanco, and the other young officers graduated from the Military School in Cuba to join with the MRR activists led by Artime and Emilio Martinez Venegas in Useppa Island around may of 1960 that led to the Bay of Pigs Invasion. Barker told me “Pepito” I just come from the Revolutionary Council and Dr. Miro Cardona and he informed me that you are leading a commando operation to destroy the Matahambre Mines. I went berserk, I got so mad when Barker told me Pepe you can’t go you have to abort the mission, the whole thing have been compromised. I immediately got in touch with Roberto Perez San Roman and the American Liaison to inform then about the need to abort the operation and to inform about the details about the security breach that I was completely sure was going to happen when in Miami. The U.S. officer refused to abort and this prompted me to hand out my resignation and left. The mission left for Cuba and they were lucky to have the ship breakdown again and towed back to port. A Militia Battalion was in wait for them at the mouth of the Santa Lucia River. A few weeks later, I joined Angel Luis Guiu (Marcos Williams) he had a group of trained saboteurs and needed my expertise to infiltrate Cuba. The Americans, they were not interested in helping to liberate Cuba, but their interest was to gather intelligence about possible missiles coming to Cuba from Russia. About this, I could not care less; my only interest was to free Cuba from oppression. I decided to resign and got a job in the private sector. I could not trust the U.S. Government since I was “expendable.” Once the rescue of the Brigade became a fact and they finally arrived in Miami. The officers in the Brigade were invited to join the U.S. Armed Forces as Second Lieutenants based at Fort Benning, Georgia. To the best of my knowledge, I am the only officer in the Brigade 2506 that refused to join the U.S. Army, notwithstanding the invitation was enticing, I only cared about Cuba. I was convinced that this was part of plan to take well-trained and motivated individuals with a very high moral out of Miami and to disperse them all over the U.S. and the World. The reasons behind all this were in order to defuse the Cuban situation and consolidate the Cuban Communist Government in power. I turned down the invitation and left with my wife with $80 in my pocket for Los Angeles, California. We settled in Los Angeles, I register at Mount St. Mary’s College and later was accepted at the University Of Southern California (USC) and got an MBA in International Business. My days as a freedom fighter were over. I had learned a sad and tragic lesson that in a country of ours; the government let down our allies and friends, assist, and support our enemies.

20. A SYDNEY TERRACE

A SYDNEY TERRACE

In an age when profits from stylish home renovations mean everything, its a shame that we look at old dwellings as places with not much value. This short film documents one such terrace house in Sydney Australia where one families history and love outshines any amount of money. A Hired Gun TV / Yatte Yattah film production in association with KnightWriter Productions 'THE LADY OF THE TERRACE' - By Dale Rigers Nana-Aunty Fay-Faysie has lived in the terrace for 77years. Her grand parents originally moved into The Terrace circa 1920. In 1938 her father was killed in work accident , she was only 10. As there were a lot of kids and some additional extended family,- the Sterling clan were brought up in two houses one in Australia street and this one. Even her brothers and sisters that lived in Australia street- to this day,refer to it as mums house - the Terrace was home. You were either going to mums house or down home. In 1952 she married and after a couple of years were offered to buy the house. 1300 pounds on a 50 pound deposit. At this stage the house consisted of her grand father-her uncle - husband and new born son- her brother -and her sister. Eventually pop died brother and sister married and moved out uncle remained and three more kids were born. Life was generally pretty good and normal we lived well. Then 1971 tragedy my father died leaving her to raise four kids. She was a bride for not even 20 years an a widow ever since. Between the four of us kids we attended five different schools she was on the P&C or mothers clubs of all the schools we attended - this continued with Scouts and Girl Guides- she's 87 and still a warranted Girl Guide leader- she was a volunteer at the Sydney Olympics you name it if there's a need she's first in line, she gives of herself. She has never let any of her kids down l doubt she's ever let anybody down. In mid 1980 my grand mother her mother in law broke her hip and was confined to care. Who was it that walked all the way to Marrickville to make sure she ate properly did her washing and just spent time with her. Some years later when her uncle got sick she nursed him and kept ed him out of hospital for as long as was practical and the visited him ever day and was with him at the end. Around about 1990 my wife became very ill, mum took in my youngest two children in so I could continue to work. Her biggest heartbreak was her sister they were as close as any two siblings could be. Willene had not long finished nursing her husband Ray until his passing then she became ill. Mum packed a bag and moved in she was there day and night through good days and the bad days right up until the end. All these years later she still talks to her sister she looks at her photo and they have little chats. Mum has done her bit for country four kids 16 grandkids 9 great grandkids so far. Those that know her are better for the experience. In these days and times how many places do you know of, where you can drop in at any time day or night and get a cuppa, a meal or even a bed for the night and always feel welcomed that's what The Terrace and The Lady of The Terrace are all about and always have been and will continue to be.
