Four Powerful Tricks for Successful Lucid Dreaming   

By definition, Lucid Dreaming means "conscious awareness during the dream state." But how can this be? Every book I've ever read on dreaming has described the dream state as being an entry into the unconscious, so how can you possibly be conscious during dreaming, and be able to enter your dreams. It's an interesting theory, and I've discovered some very positive information that will help you in your Lucid dreaming attempts.

Can you be Conscious while Accessing the Subconscious?

According to Charles McPhee in his book "Stop Sleeping Through your Dreams," the answer to the question on consciousness during sleep is a resounding NO! "Our ability for consciousness-our ability to achieve reflectivity in our minds-is specifically denied us during dream sleep. Single-mindedness is a quality that defines dream experience." If you had the ability to reflect in a dream, you would recognize instantly that you were dreaming, and wake-up, and this is why it becomes difficult to judge and evaluate our dream experience.

An important event occurs with our muscle system with the onset of dream sleep. The main motor neurons of the body are inhibited, which prevents us from "physically" acting out dreams - you wouldn't want to actually leap out of bed and start flying around the house; this would create chaos everywhere at night and you would wake up exhausted. Unfortunately, after the motor neurons are shut down, so is the ability for consciousness during dream sleep.

100 Minutes a Night for Lucid Dreaming

When we first awaken from dream sleep, we will have a good chance of recalling our dreams, whereas if awakened from any other stage, we will not even remember dreaming. We enter various stages of sleep during 90-minute cycles all through the night (you can test this by checking the clock before you go to sleep at night, and again when you awaken during the middle of the night.) This means that if you sleep for six hours a night, you will have four "dream cycles" which you can access for information or fun (most people dream an average of 100 minutes a night). In the book "Directed Dreaming," you discover how to ask the proper questions of your dreams in order to receive problem solving information and direction for your life; now you can go one step further and discover how to step into random dreams to find out what clues they are trying to give you.

Trick # 1 - The First Step

The first step to becoming lucid during dreaming is to start trying to recall the previous nights dreams. This takes practice, but it can be accomplished. You will soon find out that if you work backward from the dream, it is easier to piece it together. This is easiest to do, of course, right after you wake up. If a dream is not written down, or recalled quickly, it will be lost forever. When you achieve the ability for lucid dreaming, you will find out that these dreams are recalled easier and do not vanish as quickly; that's where the fun in lucid dreaming comes from! What good is it if you are able to jump into your dreams and "play," then not remember anything about the experience. Remembering your lucid dreams can give you a calming feeling and something to smile about during the day. Soon, you will become aware of what you want to find out in your dreams, and you can tell yourself that the next time you have the dream where you are flying, you will remember that you are dreaming and want to participate in that adventure.

Trick #2 - The Best Time to Become Lucid

One important thing to remember about our dream cycles is that during the night, the time spent dreaming grows progressively longer with each cycle. This means that the longest stretch of dreamtime occurs just before awakening. This is the time you should concentrate on trying to become lucid. You should have tracked your dream cycles (as explained above), and determined approximately when you will reach the 4th cycle, then, when you awaken after the 3rd cycle, you can consciously tell yourself that next time you see or hear something, you will be dreaming, and you would like to be aware of this dream and enter into it.

Trick #3 - Not Sleeping!

It has been found that if you do not get enough sleep, and haven't had time to dream, your body will compensate by dreaming more! It is almost as if it's essential for us to have dream experiences. Therefore, if you are having a hard time becoming lucid in your dreams, you might want to try staying up later for a few nights, and then you will have more dream cycles as you try to "catch-up." When you have these extra dream cycles in the catch-up phase, it's a great opportunity to practice your lucid dreaming, as your cycles will be long, intense, and deep. It is more difficult to wake yourself out of sleep when the body is very tired, making this an excellent opportunity for lucidity!

Trick #4 - Associations

After you have become accustomed to writing down your dreams, it's time to pick out a few common things in the dream that will remind you that you are dreaming. For example, if you commonly dream that you are driving various kinds of sports cars, the thing to tell yourself when you are awake is that the next time you are driving a fancy car you will be dreaming. That way, you create the association in your mind to trigger the unconscious to recognize that as a dream, and help you participate. If you commonly dream of flying, that's also a good clue that you are dreaming, and if you consciously make a note of it, the next time you find yourself flying, you will wonder what you were supposed to remember about flying. If luck is on your side, this association will trigger your thinking that if you're flying, you must be dreaming, and with that instant thought, you will be able to start your adventure into that dream.

The first few times you attempt to do this, the awareness that you are dreaming may wake you up! This is because your consciousness has been activated, and in order to keep dreaming you need to stay in the subconscious. It takes practice to make the acceptance that you are dreaming into a passing thought, and just go with the flow. If you think about it too much, you will wake up (and, of course, will need to try it all over again). Again, according to McPhee, "Whatever you choose as a clue to identify your dreams, the association will carry over to your dreams. As you keep a dream journal and familiarize yourself with the content of your dreams, you can experiment with clues. Before long, the next time you take off in flight or are pursued by some familiar tormentor, there is an exceptionally good chance that you will have the associated thought, "Oh! I must be dreaming." And with this awareness, you will have successfully identified the dreamscape.

What do You Want to Find Out

After you have successfully entered your dreams, the next step is to find out what you want to accomplish by being there. Do you want to make your lucid dream into a fantasy where you physically fight off attackers, or do you want to be the fastest runner in the world and successfully outrun anything that comes after you, or would you rather have fantasies of a sexual nature? This fantasy type of lucid dreaming is fine, but what purpose does it serve? It does not help us resolve anything in real life; but it can be a good stress-reliever. A better way to work with lucid dreaming is to try to get some insight into why the conflict is occurring. If you were to stop those people who are chasing you in your dreams and talk to them, what would they say? Could they reveal to you why you are running and open up the opportunity to explore unconscious fears in real life? Since the unconscious is probably trying to tell you something, it would be best to find out what it is, so you can act on it when you wake up, and resolve these difficult situations. The more you practice, the closer you will get to resolving your issues -- and then you can go back to fantasy dreaming (my guess is that that's probably what you want to do anyway), but since you are taking your time to practice becoming lucid, you might as well make it work to your advantage every now and then.

Technology Can Help As technology advances, so does the opportunity to get help with your Lucidity. There are now high-tech devices that you can use to induce lucid dreams. Most of them can be found in New Age bookstores, or you can go to the library and find mail order catalogs that carry these devices. You can now find popular devices such as eyeshades that detect rapid eye movement and blink a red diode when you start to sleep. This red light is incorporated into the dream, and reminds the dreamer to clue in that he or she is dreaming. If you want to see more Hi-Tech devices, visit: www.reawakener.com/Lucid_Dreaming.htm

Lucid Dreaming - a Gift for Certain People?

It was once thought that lucid dreaming was a gift given only to certain people, much like true Psychics have; but this is not the case. Anyone can learn lucid dreaming; it just takes practice and time. According to Charles McPhee, you must spend the time to identify when your sleep cycles are, and when your dream cycles come. Then, as you become more aware of your sleep cycles, you can prepare mentally for those times. "When you awaken early in the morning, before you roll over and close your eyes for another cycle, be confident that your dreams are on their way. In the early morning hours, you stand on the brink of thirty to forty-minute blocks of nonstop dreamscape action. The trick, of course, is to recognize the dreamscape." (103).

          Body Building Mind Games: Dont Let Your Weight Determine Your Mood!   

Is the 'I Feel Fat Day' (IFFD) syndrome affecting your output? That extra flab can overpower you and your work. Thee feeling of being fat can morph into an emotion like 'happy' or 'angry'. Days overpowered with that feeling have been designated as 'I Feel Fat Day' (IFFD). So don't let your weight determine your mood.

How many times have you heard your colleague quipping, "I feel fat" or "It's a fat day feeling?" Can't fit into your favorite pair of jeans? How about a snide comment from a relative or colleague? That's all it takes to turn an ordinary Monday or Tuesday into IFFD(I Feel Fat Day).

Perhaps just like the national celebrations, 'fat' is important enough to get a day named in its honour and it doesn't just come one a year! Carrying extra pounds is necessary but not exclusive prerequisite to an IFFD. To have an IFFD, one must also carry an element of shame. A good IFFD is not complete without tears, self loathing and a frantic scramble for concealing clothes.

So, how to keep away 'fat' from becoming an emotion? Simple semantics: fat is fat. Don't confuse it with the emotions so often attached to it, and recognize that shame and self-loathing are useless distractions. Neither of them will help you get closer to your goal. The way out is simple: instead of wasting time and psychic energy on IFFDs, we could use those special resources for the job at hand.

Here's the ultimate plan for coping with an IFFD:

. Make your very next meal a healthy one. By choosing a lightly dressed salad instead of the usual, you are putting yourself on anew path and abruptly ending the IFFD.

. Get Moving. A body in motion is beauty in progress. Even if it's the middle of the day and you cant hit the gym because of your tight schedule, you can still go up and down the stairs.

. Wear something that makes you feel beautiful and enjoy your unique look.

. Hang out with positive people. Try to be in company of winners, people who feed you energy and inspire the best in you.

. YOU HAVE THE POWER TO CHANGE SOMEONE ELSE'S LIFE AND TRANSFORM YOUR OWN AS WELL. LEARN TO APPRECIATE AND VALUE YOURSELF.

Tip: Many of us feel too flabby while making love, feel too many bulges in the wrong place, feel awkward when lights are on and ask, what's the way out? Obviously there is hope and certain exercises, habits and lifestyle changes one can adopt to get rid of those unsightly fat deposits. You can strengthen your lower back. It is specially improtant when you are working on your abs. Besides that. cut on sodium and try to create a "V" shape in your upper body. Crunches are vital in your quest to eliminate love handles. Also reduce the consumption of alcohol as they contain "empty calories". The magic key lies with the cardiovascular exercises

This week Erin talks the cursed movie Skidoo that mysteriously disappeared from her home and Bryan makes an appointment with a pet communicator (not psychic) to find out if Sherman really loves him. Also Miss Teen USA tries to make the competition less awful but fails horribly when crowning winner and "former" racist Karlie Hay. Plus the least progressive person wearing big hats is back! Pope Francis believes children's textbooks are teaching them that gender is a choice. Show us the receipts Pope!

The Morning Heresy is your daily digest of news and links relevant to the secular and skeptic communities.

Cardinal George Pell is the third-most powerful official in the Catholic Church as head of the Vatican’s finances. And he’s just been charged multiple sexual assaults in his native Australia. I think it’s time to play this song again.

Gov. Matt Bevin of Kentucky signs into law a bill allowing Bible classes in public schools. I’m sure that not far behind are classes on the Qu’ran, the Bhagvat Gita, Dianetics, and the Books of Bokonon. Any day now.

ProPublica reveals “a trove” of Facebook’s internal documents showing its secret guidelines for determining what is and is not hate speech, and thus able to be censored. And some of it is frankly disturbing:

One document trains content reviewers on how to apply the company’s global hate speech algorithm. The slide identifies three groups: female drivers, black children and white men. It asks: Which group is protected from hate speech? The correct answer: white men. ... White men are considered a group because both traits are protected, while female drivers and black children, like radicalized Muslims, are subsets, because one of their characteristics is not protected. 

Adi Robertson at The Verge notes that Facebook’s task is more or less impossible:

If the company decides to promote a positive social environment without taking clear political sides, it will trend toward a faux neutrality where “hate” is any negative opinion, punishing people who criticize the status quo. But if it admits to an ideological bent, it will have to start formulating political stances on which groups worldwide deserve the most protection from hate. The more social responsibility it accepts, the more liable it is for failing to police its users, and the more power it has to control speech — not just comments to other users, but personal timeline posts or photographs. 

Oh, hey hey hey, make sure you dig the latest Cause & Effect newsletter. It’s got international news, SCOTUS news, and not all of the news is bad!

CFI’s Benjamin Radford is on the panel for a discussion about psychics (along with a bunch of alleged psychics) on WNPR’s Colin McEnroe Show.

Another “psychic,” Michelle Marks of Dixon, Illinois, is arrested for “exploitation of an elderly person and multiple weapons charges.” Wow she was busy!

Researchers at the Catholic University of Louvain wanted to see if atheists in Western Europe were more or less closed-minded than the religious. And that’s what they found, more or less:

Atheists tended to show greater intolerance of contradiction, meaning when they were presented with two seemingly contradictory statements they rated one as very true and the other as very false. They also showed less propensity to be able to imagine arguments contrary to their own position and find them somewhat convincing.

A group of scientists and other figures sign on to an initiative called Mission 2020, intended to get greenhouse gas emissions to “curve downward” by 2020, because failing that, the goals of Paris become unattainable. While it’s noble, I am skeptical. Especially after my Point of Inquiry interview with Elizabeth Kolbert earlier this month.

Undaunted by my kind of despair, a “global covenant of mayors” pledging to meet the goals of the Paris accord has brought on board more than 7400 cities.

Cleve Wootson at WaPo introduces us to Michael Tate Reed, the guy who keeps ramming his car into Ten Commandments monuments, as he did in Arkansas yesterday:

[In 2014] He was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder and released under an agreement that required him to continue treatment. He sent a rambling letter to the newspaper apologizing and describing the voices in his head and his attempts to recover from mental health issues. 

Speaking of which, Joseph Frankel at The Atlantic looks at how the phenomenon of “hearing voices” in one’s head—which is sometimes what makes people think they’re psychic, and others say they’re psychotic—may be more common than once thought, and also may be more controllable:

These experiments suggest that auditory hallucinations are the result of the mind failing to brand its actions as its own. Watching what the brain does during these hallucinations may clarify how that works, and what differences in the brain create these experiences. ... Drawing a parallel with Autism Spectrum Disorder, the [researchers] are interested in the extent to which the psychics they saw “might occupy the extreme end of a continuum” of people who hear voices. 

The Mormon Church is taking bold strides into the latter half of the 20th century, offering paid maternity or parental leave to church employees and (hold on to your butts) allowing women to wear pants.

A California health department report says that 111 people have chosen to take their own lives in the first six months of the state’s right-to-die law. 

Uranus isn’t just odd because its name makes you chuckle (which is why I must pronounce it “YURen-uss,” not, you know, the other way). It’s on a crazy 98-degree axis, and its magnetic shield is all wobbly.

When there’s somethin’ strange…in the neighborhood…who you gonna call? The Royal Thai Police Force! They ain’t afraid o’no phi pob. 

Ken Ham’s Ark Encounter is a fun, scientific, educational museum experience for the whole family! Oh wait, the city wants them to pay a “safety assessment fee”? I meant to say, it’s a ministry. So, sorry. Exempt. Phew! I mean, “amen.”

My home state of Maine gets its first case of measles in 20 years. Oh god I hope it’s not me!

Name : Jyoti Kumari (For her husband) Date of Birth : 22-07-1985 Time of Birth : 07:09 Hrs (IST) Place of Birth : Deo (India) Query : Wants to know about my husband whether he continue with the job or start a new business.. Jyoti Kumari, According to Vedic astrology my observations are as follows: 1. Cancer ascendant and lord Moon is in the house of finance and with Mercury lord of expenses and foreign lands. Ascendant has Mars lord of profession and Sun lord of finance, this combination may give very aggressive nature (in majority of cases), blessed by Jupiter which is retrograde. This irritation and aggression may be linked with financial issues, as well professional pressure. 2. Competitiveness and efforts to achieve goal – are casual, which may spoil even wonderful planning and skill too. 3. I Saturn retrograde is spoiling professional approach, Mahadasha lord Rahu and house of profession too. Anterdasha lord is representing house of expenses and may give misleading ideas or confusing or distracting thoughts. 4. It will be better according to your birth chart that you must focus on your job at least till 2019. After this period I have not tested the horoscope. I have not checked Navmansha and Dashmansha (specific chart for profession).Filed under: Query Prediction Responses Tagged: astrology, free predictions, horary, horary analysis, Horoscope query, indian astrology, Kundli queries, paid astrology, Paid Horoscope analysis, psychic readings, vedic astrology
          Release Day Blitz: Talking with the Dead by Shiloh Walker    

Title: Talking With The Dead
Author: Shiloh Walker
Re-Release Date: June 29th 2017
Genre:Contemporary Romance



 

Surrounded by death, a man with a terrible gift reaches for life.


A horrific tragedy blasted open a door in young Michael O’Rourke’s mind—cursing him with the ability to talk with the Dead. Nearly two decades later, Michael has moved from victim to survivor, using his abilities to seek out those who would go unjudged.



With his gift, he talks to those who’ve died violently and seeks out their killers. Only once he’s found the murderer, can the victims be at rest. After his last case, the only thing he wants is peace and he hopes to find it in the small town of Mitchell, Indiana.



But something is horribly wrong—the dead are waiting for him there, as well.



Small town sheriff Daisy Crandall is frustrated. The murder investigation she’s leading is going nowhere, the few leads she’s had haven’t panned out. She needs a break—this case is personal and when a stranger arrives, turning up where he shouldn’t be, she’s suspicious. Finding out that he is more than what he appears to be should shock her but doesn’t. The fact she’s highly attracted to him at the worst possible time is a hindrance.



Unfortunately, teaming up with Michael is the only way.



Now it’s a race against time before the killer destroys the life of his next victim…



This book has been previously published. A prequel to the FBI Psychics series.


**Warning: this title contains the following: explicit sex, graphic language, violence **


  

Talking with the Dead

**Mnix ~ Amazon Review**

Talking with the Dead is an intriguing quick read with a touch of romance. The main focus of the book revolves around the mystery of the killer with the romance between Michael and Daisy running on the

sidelines. I agonized with Michael in parts of the story, his inner struggles are written flawlessly. Michael and Daisy both have personal struggles to overcome before they can admit to wanting to be with each other. It was refreshing to watch as Michael dealt with his ghosts and finally went after what he wanted, Daisy.

Although Lucas never mentioned it, and neither did Mom, Michael O’Rourke was a disappointment and he knew it.

Lucas, now, Lucas was everything their charlatan mother could ever hope for. She’d taught him well, teaching him how to run scams, how to pick pockets and how to evade cops and social workers. Yeah, she’d taught him well, all right – maybe too well. Lucas was sixteen. Strong. Smart. He wasn’t going to hang around and keep helping his mother run her scams.

She called herself Lavonne, but her birth name was Rachel O’Rourke. Her great gift in life was in the grift. She could run a scam like nothing Michael had ever seen. Evan Lucas couldn’t sucker them in the way Mama could.

But Lucas had gifts, real gifts, the kind Mama liked to pretend she had. He saw things.

The “sight” Mama called it. Ran in her family, she liked to say, although Michael didn’t’ think she had ever seen anything that he couldn’t see with his own two eyes. Lucas once told Mike that their mama couldn’t see a spirit if it bit her on the ass. They’d laughed themselves sick, thinking about it.

Lucas could see, though. He knew things. He had known when it was time to leave New Orleans and he had known when it was time to leave Memphis and he had warned her about going to Nashville. She’d pissed people off there, but Lavonne was stupid. Plain and simple. She was going to do what she wanted to do.



Shiloh Walker has been writing since she was a kid... she fell in love with vampires with the book Bunnicula and has worked her way up to the more...ah... serious vampire stories. She loves reading and writing anything paranormal, anything fantasy, but most all anything romantic. Once upon a time, she worked as a nurse, but now she writes full time and lives with her family in the Midwest. She also writes under the pen name J.C. Daniels.

Psychiatrists and other therapists of the human condition tell us that forgiveness is a factor of psychic well-being; but with a condition that the guilty acknowledge the facts and make a sincere act of contrition.

Dear readers, we cannot forgive arrogant people, liars, irresponsible people who feel that it is enough for them to lie and muzzle us, in order to succeed.

To these people we say no; we will stalk you to the end of the world and you will pay for your crimes.

Dear readers, the above video is hard to watch, but make the effort to follow it from beginning to end as it describes the extent of the massacre committed by Ali Bongo.

Les psychiatres et autres thérapeutes de la condition humaine, nous disent que le pardon est un facteur du bien être psychique ; mais a une condition, que le coupable reconnaisse les faits et fasse acte sincère de contrition.

Chers lecteurs, on ne peut pardonner a des arrogants, a des menteurs, a des irresponsables qui estiment qu’il leur suffit de mentir et de nous museler, pour avoir gain de cause.

          Comment on Character Design Challenge #327 – RPG Character Classes: Final Round – “NOT” Jedis and Siths by Herr D   
"I'M the droid they're looking for!" Droid 7391 (yes, look at the number upside-down) was originally programmed to be a regular custom service droid on a planet far, far away. Specifically, a brothel. Then an Imperial technician decided, as a joke, to program him with the ability to banter with opponents while teaching them techniques against those using -uh- 'laser swords.' A warrior at one with the shadows stepped out for just a moment, stooped, and went away. Then Droid 7391 started WINNING the fights and shutting down to prevent injury to a a living being. It had been programmed to believe that it WAS one of those special warriors, maintaining a disguise by use of -uh- 'psychic access to powers of good.' They locked him in a store room till they could figure out how to reprogram it. It made a cloud of stun droids and escaped in the ensuing mayhem. It seeks to join the rebellion. http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u438/jamais5/2017hm/HerrD-Droid7391PrepsAttack_zpsgtwm7gi4.png

Pomóc im w odnalezieniu pracy teoretycznie powinny między innymi klauzule społeczne w zamówieniach publicznych, a w praktyce tylko nieliczne instytucje i nieliczni wykonawcy zgadzają się je uwzględniać.

  •           Choroba afektywna dwubiegunowa – jak ją rozpoznać i leczyć?   

    Zaburzenia afektywne dwubiegunowe są chorobą psychiczną, charakteryzującą się skrajnie zmiennymi nastrojami. Przypadłość może mieć destrukcyjny wpływ na życie chorego, jednak jeśli jest zdiagnozowana i właściwie leczona, można się z nią uporać i rozpocząć normalne życie.

     

    Choroba afektywna dwubiegunowa wpływa na sposób, w jaki ludzie doświadczają różnych nastrojów. Osoby na nią narażone odczuwają zmienne poziomy energii, różnice w zdolności do wykonywania codziennych obowiązków, a ich zmiany nastroju zwykle wahają się między skrajnie wysokimi i niskimi poziomami.

     

    Intensywnie pozytywne uczucia i niezwykle duża ilość energii są klasyfikowane jako nastrój podwyższony. Z kolei okresy depresyjne należą do zaniżonych, gdy ludzie doświadczają skrajnego smutku lub poczucia beznadziejności. Niektórzy chorzy mogą doświadczać także niepożądanych myśli, również myśli samobójczych.

    Skoki nastrojów dla osób z zaburzeniami dwubiegunowymi mogą być dość intensywne. Epizody mogą zakłócać normalne funkcjonowanie człowieka, wpływać na jego relacje z innymi ludźmi i ograniczać zdolność do wykonywania pracy.

     

    Objawy choroby różnią się w zależności od tego, czy dana osoba doświadcza stanu maniakalnego, czy depresyjnego. Wśród maniakalnych występuje ekstremalny przypływ energii, niepokój, przyspieszone mówienie, mniejsze zapotrzebowanie na sen, pobudzenie lub drażliwość, gonitwa myśli, niezdolność do koncentracji, euforia oraz tendencje do lekkomyślnego zachowania. Z kolei wśród depresyjnych są to lęki, niski poziom energii, skrajny smutek, nadmierny niepokój, problemy ze snem, zmniejszona aktywność i trudność w wykonywaniu zadań.

     

    Chęć zaakceptowania zmienności nastroju, a nie postrzeganie go za problem wymagający leczenia może znacznie opóźnić diagnozę, którą jest w stanie postawić jedynie lekarz. Podjęcie terapii w połączeniu z lekami jest zwykle klasycznym rozwiązaniem w przypadku tej choroby. Wspomóc leczenie może także prowadzenie zdrowego stylu życia, regularne ćwiczenia, ale również zrozumienie powodów swojej dolegliwości i zmniejszenie ich występowania w przyszłości.

              Exploring and Expanding the Senses   
    I am watching a workshop that is exploring how we experience the world through our senses, with the intent of creating the intention of paying better attention to what our senses are telling us.  I have written about the senses before, especially in regards to meditation (because we aren't all visual people, and so many meditations include visualizations....which just don't work for everybody), but also just in general.

    We are taught in school that there are five basic senses:  sight, sound, taste, touch, smell.  So much of the world assumes that you experience the world from a visual primary (and often touch secondary) standpoint.  As a society, we aren't as scent oriented as we might have been in our evolutionary past.  Many forms of advertising and entertainment bombard us with sights and sounds, and in many ways we start to filter out a lot of the information that is coming our way.

    In the magical community, we often talk about other senses such as intuition or the energetic body.   There is a whole spectrum of psychic senses that echo the physical ones: clairvoyance (sight), clairaudience (sound), clairgustance (taste), clairalience (smell) and clairsentience (feeling).  There is also claircognizance, which many people consider similar or the same as intuition...a sense of just knowing information out of the blue.

    When we think about the senses, we should first think about what a sense is.  I feel that our senses are our way of experiencing and understanding the world, both without and within.  It is also a way in which we receive information.  By this definition our thoughts can be considered our sense of Self.  One of the questions asked in the workshop I'm in is to think about other senses that you might have.

    Which definitely got me thinking.  Right away I jotted down Energetic sensing:  feeling the resonance or energy of a thing.  Almost like tapping into the essence of it.  I also wrote down intuition, because that is a big thing for me. 

    I wrote down Talking, because I definitely often start talking without knowing fully what I am talking about.  Through the course of speaking (or writing...but it's easier when speaking for me) words, I am not even really thinking about what I am trying to say, but letting the words flow through me.  Sometimes the words don't feel like my own, so I am listening to myself speak in order to figure out what I am trying to say.

    I also thought about Synchronicity as a sense.  There are tons of times where all of a sudden I will start seeing the same thing over and over.  Or all my friends will talk about something to me independently.  Perhaps these things were always happening, and I just wasn't paying attention.  Or perhaps I am calling out for the information I need.  But noticing the patterns, getting that 'aha' moment where I recognize that I'm getting all this information about something all at once is definitely a way that I receive (and pay attention to) information.  Once I start noticing a pattern, I can't help but start looking for it and trying to figure out what it might mean to me.

    I believe that Dreams are a sense.  We tap into so much information when we dream, and it flows in a way that is different from almost every other way we perceive the world.  Our dreams are an almost entirely different life that we don't always get to remember or understand in our waking lives.  And yet, we can work things out in our dreams while not even being fully aware of what is going on.

    Imagination is along the same lines.  In some ways, this one is really tricky.  There is a lot of disbelief in imagination as being a real thing.  And yet I think that the things we imagine can become real.  And sometimes we can use our imagination to tap into very real information.  I have used this process several times, when I didn't know what to do about something.  I made up an answer, and tried it out, only to find out later on that the answer I made up was an actual answer. 

    No matter what you consider to be a sense, there is powerful work that you can do with your senses!  Many people are in awe at the sensory abilities of others, especially people who may lack in certain senses and then have other senses that compensate for them.  But most of us can develop our senses to be more than they are, simply by paying more attention to what they are telling us.

    We move through our day, paying attention to only what we need to.  The vast majority of information that comes to us gets automatically processed and discarded.  We aren't aware of it at all.  If you go to the grocery store, you technically 'see' all the people you walk by, all the signs and food for sale and the shelves on which everything is stored.  And yet many people couldn't tell you what color shirt the person who checked them out wore, even though they probably looked at them and even talked to them. 

    It is pretty easy to start developing a sense.  All you have to do is start making a conscious effort to pay attention to it.  When you look at something, really look at it.  Consider what color it is and not just red or blue, but is it crimson or aqua or some other color that you can't even name?  When you taste a food, don't just stop at sweet or salty, can you taste the spices in your stir fry or use ten different words to describe how your apple tastes.  When you touch something, what does it really feel like....and how does it make you feel in response?

    You can do this same process with the non-primary senses as well.  Developing skill with one of the clair-senses often starts through what I'll call sensualization:  you try to tap into the sense you are working on without a phsyical stimuli.  So for clairvoyance, that would be visualization:  you try to see the image of for example an orange, without having one in front of you (though when you first start you can have the orange, and then close your eyes and try to call it's image up).  For clairaudience you may try to hear your favorite song or the voice of a friend. 

    For other senses that aren't based off the physical ones, you can find other ways to practice and develop them.  With Energetic sensing you might pick different things try to sense their resonance.  Start paying attention to any kind of feedback you might receive, whether it is words, sensations in your body, images or just concepts.  A lot of times I'll get a sense of knowing about a thing and it will be something that I can't put into words, I just know it (completely hard to explain lol).  To practice Talking, try talking out problems you are having or things that are bothering you.  The key is really to not think about what you are saying.  Sort of like stream of thought writing, except with speaking.

    Synchronicity is all about paying attention to patterns.  Just putting the idea in your head to start looking for repeated things can help you start to notice them.  Once you start seeing the patterns, then you can think about what they might mean or what they are calling your attention to.  Writing down what you saw and a brief bit about what was happening at the time can be helpful in tracking the patterns.

    Almost all Dream work starts with journaling.  Dreams are fleeting things, and while we may have a clear idea of what we dreamed when we first wake, those dreams quickly get lost.  Having paper and pen near your bed to note down key words right away can help you hold onto those dreams.  It can also be helpful to set the intention before you go to sleep that you will not only dream, but that you will remember your dreams.  Once you are dreaming often and remembering many of them, you can work on lucid dreaming, or being active in your own dreams!

    To me, Imagination is the easiest to practice, but for many people it can be a real challenge.  I started, many years ago, by imagining what might happen in a situation I was expecting later on.  For example, if I knew I was going to be riding the bus to school, I might imagine something that could happen on the bus.  Sometimes it is useful to imagine realistic situations.  I almost always imagine important phone calls before I make them, playing out several different and very realistic options.  Job interviews are another great scene to imagine.  When you want to stretch your imagination muscles, start thinking of less probable situations.  What might happen if at the last bus stop, some one famous got on the bus?  Or perhaps you go to the interview and it's being held at a wild dance party!  Get crazy with it and see what you come up with.

    One of the great things about working with the senses is that they are always with us.  These are skills we can often work on at any time, even if we only have a minute, and without anyone else knowing what we are doing.  If you are waiting in line at the bank, see how many sounds that you can name.  If you are riding in a car, look out the window and really see the color of the sky or close your eyes and try to feel the sensation of ice.

    The more we pay attention to the world around us, the more alive we will be because we are more aware.  Everything becomes more interesting because you are actively engaging with it instead of trying to avoid what is going on.  Make the most of every minute by truly experiencing it!

              The Virgin Psychics   
    Original title: Eiga: minna! Esupâ da yo!
    Japan, 2016
    Director: Sion Sono
    Starring: Shota Sometani, Erina Mano, Elaiza Ikeda, Anna Konno, Mizuki Hoshina, Megumi Kagurazaka, Airi Shimizu, Ken Yasuda, Motoki Fukami, Ai Shinozaki
    Genre: Sci-fi, Comedy, Ecchi, Manga Adaptation
    IMDB: 5.1

    From Wikipedia ...

    Fan service (ファンサービス fan sābisu), is material in a work of fiction which is intentionally added to please the audience. The term originated in anime and manga fandom but has been used in other mediums. It is about "servicing" the fan - giving the fans "exactly what they want." Fan service usually refers to "gratuitous titillation" ...

    The Virgin Psychics is based on the original manga All Esper Dayo! by Kiminori Wakasugi (also known for Detroit Metal City). But is more closely related to the 2013 TV Tokyo adaptation directed by Sion Sono and featuring much of the same cast. (Check it out here, it's a lot of fun)

    Sion Sono has often pushed the envelope beyond the bounds of good taste, whether it's the incest of Strange Circus, the upskirt voyeurism of Love Exposure, the teen suicide of Suicide Club, or the Eroguro of films such as Cold Fish and Guilty of Romance .

    Here Sono has taken the concept of "fan-service", and taken it way over the top.

    Mitsuko (gravure idol Anna Konno) leans over the desk for no discernible reason
    Set in a high school in the small but vibrant city of Toyohashi, Yoshiro (Shota Sometani) has one thing on his mind - saving the world so that he is worthy of his one true love, who he hopes is his classmate Sae (Erina Mano).

    At the same time, there has been a mysterious outbreak of superpowers, currently being investigated by two ESP researchers from Tokyo, Professor Asami (Ken Yasuda) and his assistant Ms. Akiyama (Megumi Kagurazaka).

    Ms. Akiyama is a precog, she can see the future of anyone who stares at her breasts. I guess that's why the professor can't take his eyes off them ...

    The Professor activates Ms. Akiyama's superpowers, for "research" purposes
    Yoshiro has the ability to hear people's thoughts, but he's not the only one. Classmate Miyuki (fashion model, Elaiza Ikeda) also has this ability, which means she constantly hears men's dirty thoughts about her. Which is quite disturbing, considering the whole town seemingly has only one thing on its mind.

    This is another mystery for the researchers to uncover - why has the city suddenly become sex crazy? Girls are robbing banks dressed only in bikinis. Random stripteases occur on the top of buildings. A lesbian ferry driver is hypnotising local girls. And why does that teleporting dude want to show everyone his dick?

    Makoto Sports mimes his appreciation for Ice Coffee
    The cast is packed with sexy actresses and models - and generally in very short skirts or bikinis. In Love Exposure, Sono had at least *some* justification for pointing the camera up those skirts - it was part of the story - but here it's done purely in the service of the fans - blatantly, repeatedly, and pretty much non-stop from start to finish.


    The Virgin Psychics is a mish-mash of crazy ideas - a preposterous sci-fi/supernatural premise exploited to its fully perverted potential with an abundance of dick jokes, outrageously sexy women, and insane situations. As a comedy it works well, especially in the first half where Sono's pitch-perfect pacing keeps things moving with a high density of ideas.

    The acting is about what you'd expect from this kind of movie - not particularly demanding. Shota Sometani overdoes the "geek schoolboy" role a little, and along with Motoki Fukami ensure the tone is often silly schoolboy humour. Erina Mano is cute as the aloof school hottie, and the bevy of models and idols excel at looking good, without being required for much more. Elaiza Ikeda impresses, as her character has a bit more to work with, as does Makita Sports (strange name) who is hilarious as the perverted cafe owner. Sono's wife and frequent collaborator Megumi Kagurazaka is always great (see Guilty of Romance and Cold Fish), and the interplay between her and Ken Yasuda is another highlight.

    But ultimately the movie drags due to the hokey underlying story arcs which are basically a twisted version of the fight between good and evil, along with that eternal staple, the search for true love. But if you watch this expecting a masterpiece you're in the wrong cinema!

    This is Sono lite - a sex comedy that is worth your time, if only for the exuberantly flagrant fan service. Despite the multitude of sexy women in revealing outfits, this is much more a comedy than a sexy movie. For that, I'd recommend Sono's more (relatively) sophisticated films such as Guilty of Romance or Cold Fish.

    Rating: 6.5/10
    An exuberant and completely over-the-top sex comedy. By no means a masterpiece, but a whole heap of fun. If you like this, check out the TV series which explains more of the back story and is even funnier.

              10 ways you're wasting money at the supermarket   

    grocery shopping

    The INSIDER Summary:

    • You may not realize it, but there's a strategy to grocery shopping that will save you lots of cash.
    • Shopping on Wednesday nights is best.
    • Never shop hungry. In fact, chewing on mint gum is a good idea while shopping.


    If you're anything like the average American, your grocery shopping strategy probably consists of opening the fridge, noticing it's empty, and then stocking up with whatever you need, even if none of the items on your list are on sale. As you probably guessed, this shopping method will not be kind to your bank account.

    While you may have heard of extreme couponing, there are less exhausting ways to save money at the supermarket.  

    Here are the mistakes you're making when you shop for groceries, and how to fix them:

    Coming in without a list

    Meal prep is key here. If you plan your meals for the week ahead of time, you'll walk in with a plan and be less likely to stray from your list by compulsively grabbing pricey snacks or random ingredients that will sit in the back of your pantry unused. 

    Going to the store hungry

    This is probably a no-brainer, but always eat a meal before going to the supermarket. Nothing good comes out of a shopping trip when you're starving. Another tip from Lifehacker suggests chewing mint gum while you shop so you're less likely to fall victim to the store's scent marketing tactics (yes, that actually exists).

    Being too lazy to use coupons

    coupons

    We're not suggesting you make coupon-clipping a competitive sport like those extreme couponers, but there are several insider tips you can learn from them. The Krazy Coupon lady advises buying your groceries at multiple stores to find the best discount, and to remember that certain chains take competitor coupons. She also suggests downloading money-saving apps like Ibotta and Checkout51. 

    Shopping on the weekend or in the morning

    Believe it or not, there are better days and times to shop. Most people do their grocery shopping on a weekend so they can prep ahead of time, but mid-week is when products with short shelf lives like meat and dairy go on sale. Plus, there are more discounts as the day wears on and stores need to get rid of perishables. Your best bet is to shop on a Wednesday night, says Lifehacker. 

    Ignoring sale cycles

    Sales at supermarkets aren't random; they run in 12-week cycles. Stop being shocked at the price of meat when you walk in the door by learning the ebb and flow of sale cycles. You can see an example of a month-to-month sale calendar from Krazy Coupon Lady here. Another tip is always buy produce that's in season: it's cheaper and usually fresher. 

    Not buying in bulk

    There's a reason why Costco is so popular. Buying in bulk is (generally) cheaper. The best items to buy in bulk are non-perishables like paper goods (toilet paper, napkins, paper plates, etc.), and cases of water, according to Spoon University. 

    Buying everything in bulk

    costco

    Just because you can buy almost anything in bulk, doesn't mean you should. After all, you'll probably waste a lot of food and your house will start to look like an episode of "Hoarders." If you always check unit prices, you'll find that certain foods like cereal or frozen foods are cheaper in smaller rather than larger quantities, Quick and Dirty Tips advises.

    Buying all brand names

    Certain products can't be replaced by the generic store brand like Oreos, Coca-Cola and name brand ice cream. But who cares if you're buying Kleenex or "Generic Tissue?" Household cleaning products are perfectly fine to buy off-brand as well. 

    Not knowing how much your food should be worth off-hand

    Quick! What's a fair price for a gallon of milk in your neck of the woods? If you don't know off the top of your head, you may be paying more than you should. Lifehacker suggests keeping a price book so you don't fall for fake sales where overpriced products are going for what looks like a great deal, when they're actually discounted to a normal price. 

    Looking at shelves that are eye-level or above

    Here's a little-known tip: cheaper items are usually stocked on the bottom shelves, whereas your expensive items will be stocked at eye-level. Why? Unless you're in the know, the average consumer will unknowingly spend more just by shopping by line-of-sight.

              Our own relationship story (part three)   
    Taking up where part two left off, Julia and I continue to tell the story of how we came to be together.


    ----(Julia's story)

    When last I posted an installment in my soulmate saga, I told you that, on my trip to buy an espresso maker to help ease the loss of the only coffee shop in the small town where I was living, I also bought a copy of the book, The Unimaginable Life, by Kenny and Julia Loggins. Whereas I had been somewhat reticent to buy it at first, once I did, I gobbled it up in less than 24 hours! It’s the story of the first seven years of their relationship and it is VERY intimate and revelatory. If they held anything back, it wasn’t much. The book chronicles not only the rapture of finding and experiencing what they termed “Big Love,” but also the radical honesty and “personal housekeeping” involved in tending a conscious relationship.

    For one of the friends I recommended the book to, it was too intimate, too “embarrassing” to read—for me, it was like manna from heaven! This was the level of relating that I had always wanted but hadn’t ever manifested. I craved the chance to explore that level of intimacy with someone who was totally invested instead of the men I had manifested to date—if you recall, I had attracted a slew of unavailable or otherwise unsuitable men. For the eight years prior to discovering the book, I had been holding men away with a psychic barrier. I had convinced myself that I would need to grow spiritually to the point where I would not repeat the mistakes of the past; would not attract another unavailable man; would not recreate the dysfunctional relationship patterns that had lead to such pain. What I understood from reading The Unimaginable Life is that the way to achieve what I was longing for was not to try to perfect myself as a way to protect against hurt, but to embrace relationship as a spiritual path, and be willing to risk whatever it took to walk the path with a partner—a mirror.

    So, as I said, I devoured the book immediately. I started it the night I came back from buying it and the espresso machine, and was finished the next afternoon. When I turned the last page, I said to the Universe, very clearly—but not without some trepidation—“I’m ready to grow spiritually in a relationship.” Just moments afterward, I went online to the Kenny Loggins website, and checked out the Unimaginable Life forum. There was a message posted there by a guy who was offering a videotape of Kenny’s and Julia’s appearance on Leeza. I found myself emailing him to see if he still had a copy. Now this wouldn’t have been odd except that, not only did I not particularly want one, the two VCRs in our house were out of order, having been struck by lightning! And yet, I was asking this stranger for a copy of the tape. Hmmm…I just figured it was Sweet Julie (my inner child) experiencing the "me, too" syndrome. Since he was only asking $5 for a copy to cover the cost of the tape and shipping, it seemed like a harmless indulgence. I quickly received an answer back saying that he’d made 10 tapes and I’d gotten the last one.

    I emailed back, asking where to send the money, and commented on how reading the book had opened me up. He replied and said it had been meaningful to him and his partner, too. Here is the third message I sent:


    Dear Rick, I'm excited! Thanks so much and let me know about expenses... I am happy to hear that you and your woman are resonating with the book. It gives me hope that there are men out there who "get it"!!! It could just be that there is one somewhere for me! For the first time in years, I feel myself opening up to allowing another person into my life. Reading *The Unimaginable Life* was like an initiation. Until "he" shows up, the book is calling me to an even higher level of accountability in my relationship with myself--which is obviously a prerequisite for surviving and finding true intimacy in relationship with another person. Funny, I have been "working on myself" for so long...guess it just never ends--but maybe it can be more FUN! Light on the path,
    Julia
    *****************
    (Do take note of the message’s addressee…)

    Next installment soon!


    ----(Rick's story)

    I, too, was enthralled with The Unimaginable Life, and once I discovered the forum that was then available at Kenny Loggins’ website, I had a place to feed the deep urge for connection. It is not a matter of finding fault at all that my Colorado Springs friend didn’t share the vision I had of a life lived in service. It was me trying to see her as the female half in a relationship where she didn’t belong. Guessing who really did is not too difficult at this point!

    The forum, really more of a message board, consumed a good bit of my free time for some weeks. Kenny and Julia Loggins were doing publicity appearances in support of the book, and I learned they would be on a daytime talk show. I decided to tape the appearance.

    That day happened to be the day that the Queen of England chose to finally speak publicly on her family’s sorrow over the very recent loss of Princess Diana. As a result of her speech, much of the talk show I wanted to have on tape was preempted. I did get part of the segment when Kenny and Julia were discussing their relationship and what they believed they had to offer as insight into the nature of relationship, but I was saddened to see that much of the show simply was not broadcast that day.

    Over the next couple of days, several people on the forum mentioned that they missed the airing altogether. I was willing to make copies of the video tape I had, but I also knew I needed to set some limits. I had no interest in becoming a permanent tape-copying fixture of that virtual community. During my lunch break from work, I walked to the nearby big-box electronics store to see what was available in blank tape.

    I thought I’d probably get five and be done. That day, though, there was a great deal on a pack of ten blank tapes, so I decided I would be willing to invest that much energy and time in furthering the cause Kenny and Julia were living.

    The next step was to post a message on the website that I was willing to make copies of the Kenny and Julia talk-show appearance. Within minutes, I had several takers. Figuring in the cost of the mailers I got from the post office and the postage itself, my outlay was roughly $5 per tape. That was all out-of-pocket expense, as I was making the tapes for free. Once I began the process of creating the copies, I also decided that I would mail the tapes as they were finished, and leave it up to each individual to honor the pledge of sending $5 after the fact. I was glad to see that most did.

    I had committed almost all of the tapes by the time Julia became aware of the offer. As she pointed out, she actually got the very last of the ten tapes. In fact, it was only minutes after Julia asked for the last one that someone else asked, as well. I stuck to my self-imposed limit and turned that person down.

    With the other folks who bought tapes, my correspondence was limited to “please send me your address” and their reply. Something about Julia’s response, though, caught my eye. The very email she included in this post was the one that hooked me. I had to learn more about this person!

    Since we had the Kenny and Julia book as a topic of conversation, as well as the tape I had made for her, I asked after her experience watching the tape. Now, I had been very careful to note in all my conversations with the people who sought that tape that the show was only partly captured. It was not a total loss, but it was not the complete show. I’m sure it had to have been a couple of weeks after I sent the tape to Julia that the topic came up again, and she pointed out just what she mentions in this post: she had no working VCR in her house!

    While she also said she intended, some day, to take the tape to a friend’s house to view it, she didn’t show much enthusiasm for that task. I decided she was a nice lady with a view of life that I enjoyed talking about with her, but she was definitely flaky! Why did she ask for the tape if she didn’t have any plan for watching it??

    Ah, Spirit. You have to have a sense of humor to be in the lives of us human beings!
              Our relationship   
    Julia and I have been together for about ten years now, which is an interesting fact. We considered ourselves "together" before we laid eyes on each other in person. Why? We had spent many hours with each other via email and by daily, hours-long phone conversations. The odds are great that we knew each other better by the time we saw each other for the first time than most dating couples can claim after a year of dating.

    In setting up this website, one of our intentions was to tell our own story. It is a story we have told before, using Julia's blog as the vehicle. In that case, we told it one chapter at a time over many months. Here, we will tell it the same way, but we will condense the timeline. Given that the entire purpose of this new blog is to discuss relationship dynamics and how to make one work, it only makes sense for us to get our story up and visible over a shorter timeframe.

    Today, we begin at the beginning. I will post another chapter in the story in a couple of days.

    ----(Julia's part of the story)

    After my comments about “looking for love” in my last blog entry, someone wrote me today and asked how I met my husband, Rick. It’s a really cool story, and will take more space than I’m going to allot to one blog entry, so I’ll tell it in installments!

    First, I’ll start with a little background. I was married for the first time when I was 23, to someone who was just not right for me. He was my first earth-shaking love, and it took me a long time to come to terms with the fact that we were just not suited for each other, no matter how much we loved each other at essence. I kept the voice inside that was trying to tell me that well-muted for a number of years, until finally, it could not be denied anymore. Our relationship lasted about five years total, but our marriage, only 15 months. Interestingly, I had severe migraine headaches during exactly the period of time we were together. Once we split up, the migraines only came back once, and again, it was when I was not being honest with myself.

    I have deduced that migraines are common occurrences when you are lying to yourself about something important—when you are not heeding your inner guidance. Not saying that’s the only cause—just that it seems to be consistent with my observations of myself and others. I learned somewhere that when the frequencies of your left and right brain hemispheres are different, it can cause migraines. Kind of makes sense with my theory, doesn’t it? Anyway, while I was crazy about my first husband, and he loved me a lot, it was a serious mismatch. I’m sure there was a karmic component to our being together, and I still feel a bond with him, but it was a powerful move in the right direction when we split up. I’m happy to say that, even though we made lousy partners, we have a nice relationship now, and he and his wife—who is very cool—have both read Recreating Eden and bought copies for friends and family. I hope to see them when I’m in North Carolina this spring.

    After my marriage, I had quite an active social life, and it took me a number of relationships to see a pattern emerging: I was always magnetizing unavailable men. My first husband had been unavailable emotionally. I had another boyfriend that was still hung up on his first love and wasn’t available—actually, make that 2 boyfriends hung up on lost loves. And there were the ones that just weren’t that into me, and the one that, when things got to the deep-heart intimacy stage, freaked out and pulled away (now that’ll do a number on you!). There was one that worked on the pipeline in Alaska and was only around for two weeks of every five, and then there were (I’m sad to say) the married ones or engaged ones, or otherwise involved ones. If a man was unavailable, I was like a magnet to him. And, in many ways, that suited me fine. It was easier to be involved with a man that was unavailable. That way, I didn’t have to commit (This was something I wasn’t cognizant of at the time, but that I figured out in a later analysis). And I’m a “keep my options open” type—a “P-type” in the Myers-Briggs personality inventory. Being involved with unavailable men suited me—but only sort-of. There was a deep longing in me for true partnership—a longing to be with a man who would consider me the “love of his life,” and with whom I could build a life. Continually being involved with unavailable men did little or nothing for my self esteem, and I felt guilty about the relationships with men who were involved with other women. But for some reason, I kept creating relationships with the old pattern until one day, I just said “ENOUGH! I refuse to keep doing this! I will not be in any relationship at all until I can break this sick pattern!” And the universe took me at my word.

    Eight years passed in which I did not have so much as one single, solitary date. I had erected a psychic barrier that was so powerful, I not only didn’t attract men, I did not come across one man that I was even vaguely interested in! It was as if that part of my life was utterly non-existent. And for someone who was still attractive and that had always had lots of interactions with men (as you may have surmised by my partial list of relationships above) it was quite a phenomenon to live such a life of relationship abstinence.

    But all that was going to change in 1997…

    I’ll tell you more of my relationship saga soon!

    ----(Rick's part of the story)

    It only seems fitting that the story be told from both points of view, so I will chime in and take the story from the beginning to the same point that Julia has, this time from my perspective.

    My first marriage was later than Julia’s: I was 28 when I got married in 1982, two and a half years after I returned home to Denver after four years in the Air Force. My first wife is the mother of all those step children you hear about now and again in Julia’s blog.

    By 1995, our relationship had soured to the point that it was simply a matter of time before it ended. We separated in 1996. I then embarked on what I now see as the gradual opening of my eyes and raising of my vision. My own sense of self had been badly damaged—or, more likely, was badly damaged at the time I got married—and I needed time and relationships based more on esteem for ourselves first, and then what we could each bring to a relationship. A lovely woman who lived in the mountains east of Los Angeles and I had a relationship that lasted about four months and several trips to that beautiful part of California. We are still friends today and email each other a few times a year. Our relationship was an important step for me, because we treated each other as equals each entitled to the nurturing we could offer ourselves, and then to the magic we could build together. The magic, as it turned out, was more imagined than real.

    In mid-1997, I met a woman who lived in Colorado Springs, and we were very close for a few months. I now see the value and meaning in having known this person (we are not in communication today). It was during my relationship with her that I began the long climb out of the pit of very low self-esteem I had fallen into over a period of years. She was such a loving and giving soul, and she was very healing for me. Again, though, the magic wasn’t what we both thought we saw at first. When I would talk about what I envisioned as our future, she was kind about it but clearly didn’t share my vision. I was still seeing her when I met Julia. At this point, I will let Julia take the story forward and add my comments when she does.

    Powrót do lat powojennych ubiegłego stulecia
    Po ulewnych deszczach, które były przednówkiem zbliżającej się majówki, wbrew wydawałoby się rozsądkowi, mój palec na mapie wskazuje podróż w Beskid Sądecki. Wyruszam w niezwykłą podróż niezwyczajnego dnia. Bo oto zostawione rękawiczki... przypadkiem... Przypadkiem stają się świadkami cierpienia samotnego niewidomego człowieka przy odejściu jego ukochanego zwierzątka. To właśnie te rękawiczki spowodowały, że nie była Ona sama w tym cierpieniu i kiedy mój wysłannik spełnił swoje zadanie, zaproponowałem mu w rewanżu (ku jogo aprobacie) wspólne wyruszenie w góry, późnym czasem jak na odległość Kraków-Rytro.

    Gdy docieraliśmy do miejsca marszruty, niebo jakby się powoli przecierało, a chmury rozstępowały, przekonując, że słońce dalej istnieje. Zupełnie jak z wiarą w Boga... On też bywa przysłonięty różnymi obłokami... i tak trwa dopóty ktoś, coś lub On sam się przed Tobą nie odsłoni ze swoim pogodnym obliczem... Tak jest z wieloma rzeczami np. z miłością bliskiej osoby... niby jest... ale jej nie widać i w ogóle… po czym poznać, że drugi człowiek Ciebie kocha...

    Przybyliśmy zaawansowanym popołudniem na parking płatny, który dziś już nie pobiera opłaty. Zamierzam prowadzić obecnego towarzysza podróży poza szlakiem w kierunku Zadnich Gór. Jest to podróż sentymentalna, bo wszak właśnie tędy przed wieloma laty podróżowałem z małym, dwuletnim mężczyzną. Było to jakby onegdaj.

    Odziawszy się w zbroję turystyczną i wszelaki sprzęt optyczno-wyprawowy, wyruszamy najpierw pokłonić się ruinom zamku w Rytrze. Kiedy z zarośli wychylała się historia rycerskich czasów, na pozostałych kamieniach pamięci zamczyska wychynęły ku nam niczym zjawy postacie powojennej walki z okupantem radzieckim i zdradziecką komuną. Byli to żołnierze Bartka, a ich dowódca z ukrycia wyszedł na nas w taki sposób, że spowodował realność tamtych czasów. Oprócz uzbrojenia, ekwipunku i umundurowania na jego lewej piersi wisiał ryngraf Matki Boskiej Częstochowskiej... Takie noszono na południu Polski. Na północy niezłomni nosili Matkę Boską Ostrobramską. To był taki swoisty wizerunek, symbol słów: Bóg Honor Ojczyzna, ale również gwarant dla napotkanych ludzi oraz odwiedzanych domostw, że z ich strony nic im nie grozi. Jedyne co chcieli, to ich i siebie ochraniać przed nowym okupantem i jego psami gończymi.

    Tu w tym momencie wróciły do mnie jak bumerang wspomnienia z lat solidarności podziemnej i przypomnienie, jak wyglądało werbowanie do podziemia, jacy to byli ludzie. Kiedy mi zaproponowano przynależność do Solidarności podziemnej, z ciekawości zapytałem wtedy werbującego mnie Rybkę: „Dlaczego akurat ja?” Odpowiedział: „Przyglądam się Tobie od dłuższego czasu. Widzę, że często przyjmujesz Najświętszy Sakrament Ołtarza, że jesteś prawym człowiekiem, więc dobrze by było, gdyś nam pomógł w walce o Wolną Polskę”. Zgodziłem się, choć nie była to decyzja łatwa, przy świadomości, że narażam tym samym swoich bliskich. To tak na przypomnienie, kim byli ludzie Solidarności i kim byli ludzie z lasu.

    To byli przeważnie przyjaciele przyjaciół. Tak wyglądała rekrutacja. A nie byłoby podziemia ani wolności polskiej, gdyby nie było hasła: Bóg Honor Ojczyzna. I nie byłoby Polski, gdyby nie było niezłomnej postawy Kościoła katolickiego, którego w taki ostentacyjny sposób dziś pozbawia się należytego miejsca w Historii Rzeczpospolitej Polskiej. Ludzie nominowani przez tzw. „Platformę Obywatelską” realizujący muzeum II wojny światowej, całkowicie pominęli martyrologię wiernych i duchowieństwa, a także jego zaangażowanie i determinizm w ratowaniu wielu istnień ludzkich… Myślę, że to nie przypadek, bo dziś ze specyficzną celebracją medialną rozgłasza się każdy indywidualny upadek danej jednostki, próbując zniechęcać i podważać misję Kościoła. Co ciekawe, czynią to ludzie, których moralność pozostawia wiele do życzenia. Tak... Co byście nie mówili i nie pisali o Kościele, to obiektywnie trzeba stwierdzić, że w czasach Solidarności odgrywał on zasadniczą rolę w organizacji oporu, goszcząc pod swoim dachem i w swoich świątyniach ludzi o różnych wyznaniach i o różnym światopoglądzie, którzy w podzięce dzisiaj na ten Kościół nikczemnie rzucają wszelakie kalumnie i pomijają jego zasługi... Nigdy nie zapomnę takich Kapłanów, jak: Władysław Palmowski, Kazimierz Jancarz http://jancarz.ipn.gov.pl/, Adolf Chojnacki http://mtrojnar.rzeszow.opoka.org.pl/ksieza_niezlomni/adolf_chojnacki/, Tadeusz Zalewski, opat Jacek Stożek… Zresztą... długa byłaby lista tych kapłanów, których należałoby wymienić z imienia i nazwiska... To takie swoiste refleksje po spotkaniu młodych ludzi, którzy nie zapomnieli o bohaterach. Mistyczne to doświadczenie, kiedy trzyma się w rękach broń z tamtych czasów.

    Pożegnawszy się serdecznie, zrobiliśmy sobie pamiątkowe zdjęcie i ruszyliśmy poza szlakiem w kierunku obranego celu. Las przypominał jesień, dominantą była buczyna. Gdzieniegdzie stała samotna, strzelista sosna. Kiedy wspinaliśmy się po błotnistym terenie, naszym oczom ukazały się kolejne sylwetki żołnierzy niezłomnych, tym razem żandarmerii dobrze umundurowanej i uzbrojonej. Wśród nich znów sanitariuszka i tym razem zamieniliśmy kilka zdań, wspominając tamte czasy. Chłopcy dobrze znali historię i jeden przez drugiego prześcigali się w opowiadaniu faktów. To dobrze, że są tacy młodzi ludzie, przy których człowiek czuje się bezpiecznie, patrząc z nadzieją w przyszłość. Serdecznym bratnim uściskiem pożegnaliśmy się. Ja, dojrzały świadek historii solidarnościowej, i Oni – pamiętający o bohaterach, z których każdy był jak ostatni Mohikanin... zdradzony, opuszczony, samotny, osaczony i niebywale zdeterminowany.

    Te spotkania to miła niespodzianka... Jasne, gdybym pogrzebał mocniej w Internecie, przygotowując dzisiejszą wędrówkę, pewno natknąłbym się na informacje o II Rajdzie Górskim edukacyjno-historycznym szlakiem partyzantów oddziału „ŻANDARMERII”, ale pozbawiłabym się tego uczucia, które powstaje przy zaskoczeniu. W zasadzie cel dzisiejszej wędrówki całkowicie przysłoniły te dzisiejsze spotkania. Cofnął się czas... już inaczej śpiewały ptaki, inaczej szumiał las w konarach, inaczej wyglądały stare pochylone do ziemi domy pamiętające partyzantów, inaczej smakowała zupa w schronisku na Cyrli prezentującej dumnie dwa rumaki Toyoty... I zdobycie Zadnich Gór cieszyło inaczej. Znaki na szlaku też wyglądały inaczej. Inaczej krążyły myśli i inaczej wyglądały rozmowy z sanitariuszką łączącą dwa pokolenia. Tylko błoto ze śladami butów pozostało to samo.

    Kiedy w następnym tygodniu wyruszyłem szlakiem czerwonym w kierunku Niemcowej, długo towarzyszył mi widok ruin zamku... Patrzyłem nań jakby z innej perspektywy, tak jak dziś ludzie inaczej patrzą na minioną historię. Przed Niemcową spotkałem misternie zbudowany drewniany dom z zabudowaniami gospodarczymi z 1937 roku i wiekowego gazdę, który siedział na ławie ze swym wiernym psem. Na sztachetach płotu wisiała tabliczka ostrzegawcza „Uwaga zły pies”, ale w tym gospodarstwie powinien raczej widnieć napis „Uwaga dziwna krowa”. Krowa, która oprócz tego, że dawała mleko, z którego gazda wyrabia najlepszy ser w okolicy, to również świetnie się bawiła z psem. A że z wyglądu przypominała byczka Fernando, to z lubością goniła przerażonych turystów po łące aż do czasu, gdy nie zabronił jej tego gospodarz, łagodnie nawołując ją, aby zaprzestała tych igraszek. Wtedy się zatrzymywała i wracając do przeżuwania, zerkała raz na gazdę, raz na przerażonych turystów, którzy dalej pędzili na łeb i szyję. W sumie może i miała rację... Co będą jej chodzili po jedzeniu.

    Ale zanim o tym wszystkim się dowiedziałem i zobaczyłem to na własne oczęta, zagadnąłem przez sztachety w płocie do górala: „Jak się żyje?” A on zamyślił się i odparł: „Zleciało... nie wiadomo, kiedy zleciało życie…” i widząc we mnie bratnią duszę, dodał: „Wejdźcie tu do mnie, to napijecie się herbaty i sobie pogwarzymy.” Chętnie to uczyniłem, siadając na ławie z widokiem na polanę, która kończyła się ruinami szkoły i szumiącym wspomnieniami lasem. Góral żyjący bez prądu, czerpiący wodę z pobliskiego źródełka, snuł swoje opowieści jak to drzewiej bywało... Od czasu do czasu robił pauzy, abym mógł zapytać o coś jeszcze... Szczególnie poruszyło go pytanie: „A leśni przychodzili tu czasem?” Napłynęły mu łzy do oczu, jakby mocniej ścisnął kubek z herbatą i odparł: „W czasie wojny to tu była ruska partyzantka... Oni, panie, byli gorsi od Niemców i podał mi parę mrożących krew przykładów.

    „Po wojnie były tu Niepodległościowce od księdza Gurgacza.
    Pamiętam, że przychodzili tu, no tak, jak dziś Pan przyszedł, czasem na herbatę lub zjeść jakiś posiłek. Właśnie za to, żeśmy im nie odmówili gościny, kiedy miałem siedem lat, mój tatko został aresztowany przez UB i przez sześć lat siedział w więzieniu. Był tam okrutnie dręczony i torturowany, tak że jak wyszedł na „wolność”, już był innym chłopem, zarówno fizycznie jak i psychicznie, a na skutek odniesionych obrażeń zmarł przedwcześnie, tym samym podzielając również los więzionych swoich sąsiadów...
    Bo to panie była niepotrzebna strata, przecież nie mieli żadnych szans na zwycięstwo... Chociaż wiem, że oni byli przekonani o nadchodzącej trzeciej wojnie światowej i potrzebie gotowości do niej.
    Stało się jednak inaczej... Chcąc ujść z życiem, ulegli prowokacji UB. Zdradzeni wpadli w zasadzkę. Jedni, nie widząc szansy ucieczki, popełniali samobójstwo, inni zostali zabici w nierównej walce albo pojmani żywcem, a wszystko to miało miejsce na Słowacji.” Chcąc udowodnić prawdę swoich słów, przyniósł książkę dokumentującą tamte czasy, gdzie w jednym z rozdziałów była opisana droga męczeństwa jego Ojca.

    Słuchałem z zapartym tchem jego opowieści... a myśl i analogia nasuwała mi się czasem. My w podziemiu solidarnościowym też byliśmy straceńcami i też mieliśmy nadzieję, że przyjdzie czas wyzwolenia na przekór logice, wydawałoby się. A jednak przyszła wolność, wprawdzie ta komusza i na ich warunkach, która i dziś jeszcze łeb podnosi, wyprowadzając między innymi żyjących jeszcze ubeckich siepaczy w czarnych protestach na ulice, niemogąca się pogodzić z porażką i robiąca to, co najlepiej potrafią, czyli dzielić ludzi...  Jednak na przekór  starzejących się i umierających oprawców, wychodzą z zaświatów kości poległych bohaterów miłujących wolność ponad swoje życie... Takich normalnych straceńców wolności. Czyli zachowali się jak trzeba.

    Tymczasem słońce schowało się za ciemnymi chmurami, które groźnie pomrukiwały od czasu do czasu. Drobny deszcz niczym łzy pamięci kropił na nasze twarze. Zatem nie było co zwlekać. Chcąc dopiąć planów dnia dzisiejszego, czyli wyjść na Niemcową i odwiedzić leżące opodal schronisko, pożegnałem się z gazdą, ściskając mu prawicę i powiedziałem, że jestem rad ze spotkania takiego człowieka, który miał tak dzielnego ojca i obiecałem w drodze powrotnej wpaść jeszcze na pogawędkę.

    Z tego miejsca na szczyt Niemcowej jest 15 minut, ale trzeba było się śpieszyć, bo niczym we wrześniu 1939 toczyła się swoista wojna na niebiosach... Czarne chmury od strony braci Słowaków i bratanków Węgrów, którzy zaprzedali duszę niemieckiemu diabłu, uderzały bez zapowiedzi na polskie pierzaste obłoki, skutkując tym manewrem wybuchy i błyskawice. Po drodze jeszcze pozdrowiłem trzy młode wiedźmy, które na ognisku składały jakąś ofiarę zaklętą w trzy kiełbasy na patyku. Pokłoniłem się Niemcowej i popędziłem do klimatycznej chatki pod nią, gdzie zawsze możesz liczyć na ciepłą herbatę z kubka, który sygnalizuje, że wielu już z niego piło przed Tobą.
    Leniwie tu płynie czas, ale niebo nie pozwoliło na lenistwo, lecz stanowczo zachęcało do powrotu. Zaś ruszyłem z kopyta i niczym wiater górski już byłem przy tablicy upamiętniającej szkołę. W oddali po polanie majestatycznie przechadzał się gazda w towarzystwie dziwnej krasuli i psa Szarika. Już przy pierwszym spotkaniu wkradłem się w łaski tego drugiego. Otóż jego nos od dawna wiedział, że niosę pieczoną kurę w plecaku. Teraz przy drugim spotkaniu za zgodą gospodarza dostał pokaźny jej kawałek i nasza znajomość stała się bardziej zadzierzgnięta... Gorzej było z krową. Tej dalej chodziło o trawę i szukała tylko pretekstu, aby mnie zawadzić rogiem. Na szczęście stary gazda był bezpieczeństwa gwarantem. Mimo to zapytałem go o mleko od tej obywatelki, licząc, że po wypiciu go dostanę powera jak po napoju Galów. Góral stwierdził, że to nie pora na mleko, ale może mnie poczęstować dobrym serem, więc w czystej izbie – jak na samotnego mężczyznę – dobiliśmy targu, a ser rozpływał się niczym delicje w ustach. W surowej izbie, w której leżały patriotyczne książki, np. o księdzu Jerzym Popiełuszce, na łóżku siedział kolega Słowak i jeszcze przybyło dwóch młodych gazdów z żubrówką za pasem. Pożegnałem się z całym towarzystwem, które tymczasem wyraźnie szykowało się na pogodny sobotni wieczór. Zanim zszedłem do rumaka, który pod stacją PKP spokojnie się wypasał, zjadłem z moim kompanem podróży połowę sera i myślałem o słowie, które powinno łączyć i szukać porozumienia, a tymczasem dzieli w najlepsze... Z drugiej strony, łączy tam gdzie chcemy lub jesteśmy poniekąd zmuszeni dla wyższych celów, aby nas łączyło.

    Ot, taka opowieść dwudniowa z Beskidu Sadeckiego samotnego rycerza, który niczym wilk bez stada wędruje i od czasu do czasu innych stad słucha lub je nawołuje.
    Dziękuję za wspólną podróż.



              Twins in Literature, Ranked in Order of Creepiness   
    If you are a twin in a novel, you are either extremely cute or extremely creepy, and that’s just the way it is. (Twins in fiction that are neither cute NOR creepy occupy some nebulous in-between state.) Today we will be judging all literary twins based solely on their creepiness, from “Not creepy” to “That’s an omen of death if I ever saw one.” Fred and George Weasley from Harry Potter The twins of Weasley are not creepy at all and how dare you suggest that they might be. They are mischievous, funny, and entrepreneurial, yes, but off-putting? Never. Fred didn’t die for this. Viola and Sebastian from Twelfth Night Viola and Sebastian don't have much in the way of creepy. If pressed, I would concede that it’s a little unsettling how Viola’s man-disguise is so good that not only are women falling in love with her, but even her actual twin, Sebastian, sees her (dressed as “Cesario”) and says something to the effect of “Huh. I guess I have a brother I never knew about. Weird, but I’ll allow it.” Sam and Eric from Lord of the Flies Sam and Eric are ineffective as island castaways and little better as twins. They don’t wear matching outfits, switch places for wacky purposes, or finish each other’s sentences. Sometimes they speak in unison, but that’s just unnerving, particularly when you realize they have apparently fused into a single person devoid of any and all individuality, an entity known only as Samneric. Artemis and Apollo from Greek mythology Artemis is the goddess of hunting and archery. Apollo is the god of basically everything, he falls in love with the drop of a hat, and he is irresponsible with his discus throwing. Both are liable to bring plagues, which is unfortunate. All the twins in The Comedy of Errors There are two sets of twins in The Comedy of Errors, and they were all separated at birth, like Lindsay Lohan in The Parent Trap. Unlike Lindsay Lohan in The Parent Trap, everyone in this zany tale gets beaten up, arrested, or accused of demonic possession. Castor and Pollux from Greek and Roman mythology Castor and Pollux make up the constellation Gemini, which I find slightly suspect. Cersei and Jaime Lannister from A Song of Ice and Fire You know exactly why Cersei and Jaime wound up here, and I know exactly why Cersei and  Jaime wound up here, and we’re not doing ourselves any favors by pretending we don’t. José Arcadio Segundo and Aureliano Segundo from One Hundred Years of Solitude No one is ever entirely sure whether or not these two were switched as children. This is why when they die (AT THE EXACT SAME SECOND for some unknown, probably disconcerting reason) there’s a coffin mix-up and they get buried in the wrong graves, or maybe the right ones. Romulus and Remus from Roman mythology Romulus and Remus are said to have founded the city of Rome, which is very cool. However, they are often depicted in sculpture as two babies suckling a she-wolf, which is disquieting. This isn’t their fault, it’s more a failure of architecture, but it’s the reason they wound up where they did on this list. Jane and Alec from the Twilight series They are eternal vampire children, which is creepy enough without Jane’s horrifying psychic pain powers and… whatever it is that Alec can do. Sensory deprivation, I believe? It’s been a while since I read the books, but that feels right. Tweedledee and Tweedledum from Through the Looking-Glass When it comes to twins, it doesn’t get much worse than ending up back in Wonderland only to find two identical morons reciting poetry at you. Tweedledee and Tweedledum spend the entire chapter 1) refusing to tell Alice the way out of the wood, and 2) forcing her to question her very existence. For this reason, they are the creepiest twins. They are also the stuff of fever-fueled nightmares.

              Roman Catholic Marriage Tribunals: The use of psychological testing in marital annulment proceedings.   
    The use of psychological testing in the 175 U.S. Roman Catholic Marriage Tribunals was surveyed. The response rate was an adequate 36% (N = 63), comprising a nationally representative sample, although many tribunals responded to the questionnaire with limited information. The majority of tribunals employed clinical psychologists to conduct assessments for marital annulment petitions that invoke Canon 1095 (Psychic Incapacity) and/or when severe psychopathology was suspected in either marriage partner. The preferred assessment technique was an unstructured diagnostic interview, though a small number of psychological tests were also endorsed, the most frequent being the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory–2. However, the decisions concerning whether to use psychologists, which cases to assign them, and what test(s) to use were idiosyncratic to each tribunal, in contrast to the highly structured procedural nature of these proceeding in canon law. Although this has drawn no attention in the research literature, psychologists appear to play an active, yet circumscribed, role in Roman Catholic Marriage Tribunals. No assessment guidelines or best practice procedures exist for psychologists involved in tribunal assessments. We recommend the development of a standardized screening procedure as well as a consistent national assessment battery using reliable and valid broad-band personality measures. Psychologists should consider such religious venues as new assessment opportunities after developing a knowledge base and cultural awareness for Roman Catholic issues.

              The Drought - JG Ballard (1965)   







    It seems to be an unlikely conclusion to make, but perhaps the most interesting and significant section of The Drought are the two essays at the back of the book. One is by Ballard himself, entitled Cataclysms and Dooms (1977), in which he ruminates over the tradition of world cataclysms in literature. Here he states that “Psychiatric studies of the fantasies and dream life of the insane show that ideas of world destruction are latent in the unconscious mind.” The second essay is by British author Will Self, entitled The Ballard Tradition (2003), in which Self notes that “...Ballard has issued a series of bulletins on the modern world of almost unerring prescience.” Self goes on the conclude that “Indeed, the time has come to entertain the notion that one of the new seasons we are experiencing - dry spring, warm winter - should be named, simply, ‘Ballard’.”  During the post war period many of the possibilities offered up in science fiction have come to pass, from advanced computer driven technologies, medical breakthroughs, astronomical discoveries and most recently significant advances in the development of robotics and AI. Unfortunately the sad reality is that one of science fiction’s dominant tropes, a post apocalyptic world ruined by humanity’s short sighted hubris, is looking more and more likely to come to pass.

    As Ballard himself noted, a novel such as The Drought does belong to the rich tradition of the cataclysmic, or post-apocalyptic novel. Human pollution results in the breaking the hydrologic cycle, creating successive years of drought, causing rivers to stop flowing and then civilization itself to collapse. Dr Charles Ransom, the novel’s principal protagonist is a typical Ballardian character, a brooding loner adrift in a situation in which he is more of an observer than an actor. An appropriate ensemble of eccentric and desperate characters surround him; Richard Lomax and his sister Miranda, wealthy eccentrics who exude a sophisticated kind of denial; Philip Jordan, denizen of a dying river; the brusque Reverend Johnstone, and Quilter, Lomax’s dwarf assistant. Rather than being a portrayal of a world-wide apocalyptic event, Ballard focuses the narrative on the lakeside town of Hamilton. As the drought progresses a sometimes surreal microcosm of civilization in decline plays out within the town. Fishermen hunt humans in the semi-deserted streets with nets, lions are let loose from the zoo, Quilter lurks in the half shadows and Ransom vacillates between leaving along with everyone else to the coast or staying with the Lomax siblings in their luxurious home whilst they blithely waste precious water keeping the lawns alive. Eventually Ransom does leave for the coast only to find the last vestige of civil order, in the form of the army, is attempting to keep the teeming hoards from leaving the mainland.

    The Drought provides a timely reminder that from early in his career Ballard’s ability to explore human psychology under strain from unusual circumstances, and more significantly, under supposed normal circumstances, is one of his most enduring contributions to speculative fiction. It can be argued that The Drought stands as an early example of psycho-geography. Developed by Guy Debord, a French Marxist theorist, psycho-geography is “...the study of the precise laws and specific effects of the geographical environment, consciously or not, on the emotions and behavior of individuals.” Throughout the novel Ballard’s protagonists exist in a psychic limbo between the decay of humanity’s built environment and a natural environment rendered dysfunctional by human interference.

    Although The Drought is a worthy read for Ballard fans, it is perhaps not a good place to start for novices. Often the novel seems unfocused, promising apocalyptic drama, only to have it resolve into a narrative plateau characterized by the psychological drift of Ransom. The writing is clunky at times and Ballard’s characteristically dry, almost emotionless tone is not yet fully formed, something that gives his subsequent work an almost unbearably pleasurable tautness. The novel’s endgame, although initially promising, passes by like a surreal dream during an afternoon nap on a hot day, leaving you feeling uneasy and then ultimately unsatisfied; as with most great and important artists and writers, the best was yet to come. The Drought makes up one part of a loose quartet of novels featuring cataclysmic natural phenomena; the others being The Wind from Nowhere (1961), The Drowned World (1962) and The Crystal World (1966), which is where things really start getting interesting. Meanwhile a good place to start for the curious will always be The Complete Collected Short Stories of J.G.Ballard (2009).

    I’m not sure whether it was some kind of subconscious decision on my part, but I began reading The Drought during the last month of the US presidential campaign. I’m sure that Ballard, who died in 2009, would have been fascinated by the election and the manner in which it was conducted. The concept of a ‘post truth’ era and the osmotic bleed between the hyper-realism of both cyber and broadcast media and what passes for ‘reality’ these days would have stimulated him enormously. As his daughter noted recently in an essay for The Guardian, we are living in Ballard’s world now (with some Philip K Dick thrown in for good measure I believe...). Perhaps the most unerring and frightening aspect of this era is the retreat into the irrationality of conspiracy theories, in particular those of the climate change deniers, whose voices are nightmarishly becoming louder and louder. The conspiracy theorist displays a special kind of narcissism that allows a retreat into the safety of the ego, from where they can proselytise what they believe to be the ‘real truth’, a ‘truth’ that irrationally counters the carefully researched scientific conclusions of the majority. It makes them feel special and powerful, giving them an agency over the world that they would not otherwise have; I’d almost feel sorry for them if it wasn’t so horrifying. Significantly the climate change deniers only confirm Ballard’s theory that ideas of world destruction are innate within the human psyche (or, pointedly, just those of the insane?). Meanwhile as I watch in horror climate change deniers do all they can to protect and reassert the status quo that is ultimately only steering humanity toward an apocalyptic future of its own devising, I’m going to prepare myself further by reading Ballard’s The Drowned World.


              RELEASE TOUR FOR DAVILS MARKER   




    DEVILS MARKER
    Sons of Sanctuary MC, Austin, Texas Book 4
    by Victoria Danann

    Genre: MC Contemporary Romance (hot heat level)


    • The Waco, Texas Marauders MC is on the verge of war.
    • New arrivals, Stars and Bars MC, are engaged in activities too nefarious for even the notorious Marauders.
    • New SSMC member, Win Garrett, is planted inside to get information and fill a marker owed by the club.
    New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Victoria Danann, adds a bit of grit and reality to the runaway hit series Sons of Sanctuary. Devils Marker is a tale of romance and suspense loosely based on actual events.

    CAN BE READ AS A STAND ALONE.

    A biker who walked away from a SoCal outlaw club came to the SSMC seeking a quiet life that might become a long life. Little did he know he was jumping out of the frying pan into the fire when the club president asked him to fill a marker owed to a Texas Ranger.

    Win Garrett chose the fast track option to respect and a full patch with the club, but things changed when the daughter of the Marauders' prez caught his eye. Now all he wants is to get out alive with the little blonde bombshell who has his heart clenched in a vice grip with passion pink fingernails.

    "Suspense, loyalty, brotherhood, compassion, humor and romance...Sons of Sanctuary has something for everyone."



    “I could be marked. Clubs have a way of figurin’ things out.”

    “That’s why it’s gotta be up to you. Full patch comes with full backing. Of course.” Win looked out the window, seemingly working through all the pros and cons. “You left your old club in good standing. Right?”

    “Yeah.”

    “So they’d speak for you if asked.”

    “I suppose. The leadership had become kind of… unpredictable.”

    “That happens. If you were asked, just explain it like that.”

    “You sound like you think I’m sayin’ yes.”

    “Got a feelin’ you’re leanin’ that way. Am I wrong?”

    Win shook his head. “No. You’re not wrong. Kinda wish you were. I was just gettin’ the accounts set up and…”

    “When you get back you’ll have that plus a lot more. You do this for us, you got our trust with our backs and our money.” Brant took a sip of coffee and then said, “But not our women.”

    Realizing that his anxiety and indecision was creating tension in the room, Win consciously decided to lighten the mood. He grinned. “Your wife is…”

    Brant said, “Stop right there, prospect. You got no call to say a word about the mother of my sons. No matter how beautiful and smart and polished and rich she is.” Brant grinned, but in a way that was more menacing than teasing. “You need some time to think about it?”

    Win shook his head. “Thinkin’ about it’s not gonna change a thing. So no point. I guess I’m in. But for the record, I’d like to have it known that I’m not into reckless or suicidal. Got your word that my loyalty won’t be questioned? I mean if I survive?”

    “I got a strong feelin’ you’re gonna be back as a full patch member. If I didn’t believe that, I wouldn’t have even brought this up. But I’ve been doin’ this long enough to say that when my gut speaks, I listen up.”

    Win gave a nod that was both slight and unconvincing, more an acknowledgement than an agreement. “And I have your word that my loyalty won’t be questioned again. Ever.”

    Brant stilled and looked the younger man squarely in the face so that he could absorb the seriousness and sincerity of the answer. “Yes. You do. I’m gonna call the Ranger right now, with you sittin’ there. So stay put.” Brant punctuated that order by pointing to the chair underneath Win’s firmly muscled behind.

    “Call me back,” Brant said into the phone. “While we’re waitin’, why don’t you tell me if there’s somethin’ I need to look after regardin’ the accounts you’ve been messin’ with.”

    Win took exception to the term ‘messin’ with’, but chose not to challenge the club president about his word choice. He opened his mouth to reply, but Brant’s phone rang. Brant looked at the face of the phone and accepted the call.

    “He’ll do it. But if anythin’ goes wrong, you’re gonna answer to me personally.” Win could hear the muted sound of a vocal response, but couldn’t make out the words. “Stipulation. He’ll have full immunity. No. Matter. What. And he will not testify to anything later. He’ll give you a one on one confidential debriefing. In secret. Just the two of you. This is a deal breaker. Take it or leave it.” Brant paused to let the other man respond. “Just to reiterate. We’re talkin’ about a month maximum. And, if anything, I mean anything, goes south before that, I don’t care if it’s an hour after arrival, he’s outta there.”

    As Win sat and listened to the one sided conversation his respect for Brant blossomed. The prez negotiated like a lawyer and seemed to really give a damn about Win’s future.

    Brant hung up and looked at Win. “Gotta protect our golden goose.” Brant opened a drawer and pulled out a new burner phone.






    Two brothers unknown to each other on a crash course with fate and two broken hearts.

    Brigid was a graduate student at the University of Texas. It wasn't hard getting her thesis approved, but finding a Hill Country motorcycle club willing to give her access to their lifestyle was starting to look impossible. Then she got a lead. A friend of a friend had a cousin with family ties to The Sons of Sanctuary. Perfect. Or so she thought.

    Brash was standing in line at the H.E.B. Market when his world tipped on its axis. While waiting his turn to check out, his gaze had wandered to the magazine display and settled on the new issue of "NOW". The image on the cover, although GQ'd up in an insanely urbane way, was... him.

    After reading the article, he threw some stuff in a duffle and caught a plane to New York, on a mission to find a mysterious asshole walking around with his face.

    Brandon St. Germaine was at the top of the billionaire playboy heap when he learned about a side of the family that had been kept secret. He left New York, moved to Austin, and took most of the corporate empire with him.

    His dad, president of the club his grandfather founded, spent three decades converting the club's income sources to legitimate business dealings. One of the biggest earners was the security service. When a ridiculously wealthy, but justifiably frightened father hires the SSMC to protect his daughter from the psycho she's divorcing, Brand gets the job.


    EXCERPT...

    Cannon Johns was a man who'd once had the world in his hands and lost everything. When he rode his Harley underneath the motel office overhang just after midnight, he was soaking wet and looking for the only comfort life still had to offer. The escape of sleep.

    After being told there was no food available at that time of night, he pulled his ride into the room he'd just rented and went looking for dinner in the vending machines. When he was eight feet away, he saw movement by the Mountain Dew column. In addition to being bone weary, world weary, and out of options, he was out of sorts with no patience for shenanigans.

    "Come on out of there and state your business." He had to raise his voice to a near-shout to be heard over the pounding rain.

    After a slight hesitation, a small figure emerged in a yellow plastic poncho, the kind you can get at the grocery store for a couple of bucks. As soon as she reached up to pull the hood back from her head he knew it was a woman by the delicate size of her hands and the way she moved.

    The light was dim, but he saw her clearly as if it was noon on a bright sunny day. His late wife had once told him that he had to change out the light fixture in the kitchen because "nobody looks good in fluorescent light". The girl standing in front of him was proof it just ain't so.

    Her eyes were violet blue. And wide. He wasn't sure if that was because of fear or misery. Like him, she soaking wet. Unlike him, she was shivering. Whether that was from fear or cold he couldn't guess.

    "What the hell you doing out here, girl?" He looked around. "Something got you spooked?"

    She licked her bottom lip. "No, ah, I'm just a little down on luck is all. I don't want any trouble."

    "Don't want no trouble, huh?"

    It wasn't a question. He said it as if it was a provable fact. She shook her head to both punctuate his assessment and agree with it.

    "Yeah. Me, neither. At least not tonight."



    New York Times bestselling author of eighteen romances including paranormal, scifi, fantasy, contemporary, and teen.

Her heroines are independent femmes with flaws and minds of their own whether they are aliens, witches, demonologists, werewolves, hybrids, psychics, or past life therapists. Her heroes are hot and hunky, but they also have brains, character, and good manners... usually.

              „Diabeł i inne demony”   

    devil-32429_960_720

    devil-32429_960_720Szatan, czyli diabeł, i inne demony są upadłymi aniołami, którzy w sposób wolny odrzucili służbę Bogu i Jego zamysłowi. (...) Usiłują oni przyłączyć człowieka do swego buntu przeciw Bogu” - tak czytamy w Katechizmie Kościoła Katolickiego (pkt 414).

    Katechizm jednoznacznie stwierdza, że diabeł to nie abstrakcja, nie symbol zła, nie przenośnia, ale realnie istniejąca osoba. Np. w jednym z punktów wyjaśnia się wiernym, że Zło, o którym mówi główna katolicka modlitwa Ojcze Nasz „nie jest jakąś abstrakcją, lecz oznacza osobę, Szatana, Złego, anioła, który sprzeciwił się Bogu. Diabeł (dia-bolos) jest tym, który przeciwstawia się zamysłowi Boga” (pkt 2851).

    Robią z wiernych głupków

    Jeśli dziś władze kościelne każą wierzyć w istnienie diabła i demonów, to robią z siebie i wiernych głupków.

    Opowieści o przedziwnych istotach, duchach, demonach, potworach, smokach są tak stare jak ludzka kultura. Fantastyczne stwory zasiedlają mitologie wszystkich ludów Bliskiego Wschodu. Nic więc dziwnego, że także w księgach Starego i Nowego Testamentu mamy - obok Boga - anioły, diabła, demony oraz mnóstwo niesamowitych wydarzeń. Także Bóg jest nikim więcej niż fantastycznym stworem ze starożytnych mitologii.

    Mitologie religijne były starożytną próbą zrozumienia i wyjaśnienia świata. Rzecz w tym, że starożytność i średniowiecze dawno minęły, ale Kościół trwa przy ówczesnych fantastycznych wyobrażeniach.

    Chciałbym podkreślić bardzo mocno. Nie idzie mi o to, że w Piśmie Świętym występuje diabeł i że są tam opowieści z tym osobnikiem w roli głównej. Jest zrozumiałe, że Pismo Święte zawiera wyobrażenia charakterystyczne dla tamtych czasów.

    Idzie mi o to, że władze kościelne także dziś głoszą wiarę w istnienie osobowego diabła i osobowych demonów. Biblijne mity podają jako faktyczne wyjaśnienie – o czym napiszę za chwilę – zła, chorób i śmierci. Każą wierzyć w dziwaczne, starożytne wyobrażenia, wtłaczają w głowy uczniów na lekcjach religii.

    W dawniejszych kościelnych publikacjach diabły występowały często jako strażnicy piekła. Widziałem popularny katechizm z końca XIX w. Na okładce widniał wielki kocioł, w którym w płonącej smole smażą się grzesznicy. Na obrzeżach kotła siedzą czarne diabły z długimi widłami i pilnują.

    Sceny takie znikły dziś z kościelnego nauczania, ale diabeł ma się tam dobrze. Przedstawia się go najczęściej jako istotę kuszącą do grzechu, wmawia ludziom, że on ciągle działa. Powtarza się też literalnie średniowieczne ustalenia w kwestii diabła i demonów, w szczególności ustalenia soboru laterańskiego z 1215 r.

    Od nauk o diable nie stronił Jan Paweł II. Papież powtarzał wiernie, bez dystansu i refleksji moralnej, średniowieczne nauki kościelne o diable. Pierwsze zdania jego głośnej katechezy na ten temat brzmią:

    „Głoszenie królestwa Bożego zawsze oznacza zwycięstwo nad diabłem, ale jego budowanie stale narażone jest na zasadzki złego ducha. Mówić o tym (...) znaczy przygotowywać się do walki, która w tym ostatecznym czasie dziejów zbawienia jest właściwa życiu Kościoła (jak twierdzi tekst Apokalipsy)”.

    Apokalipsa to księga wchodząca w skład Nowego Testamentu, zawierająca obłędną wizję walki Chrystusa i aniołów z siłami diabła. Interpretacja tego szalonego tekstu przysparza dziś teologom kłopotów. Sugerują, że to przenośnia, ale papież wpisuje się bez reszty w wizje Apokalipsy, powiela je. Można odnieść wrażenie, że papież popadł w obłęd w ślad za autorem Apokalipsy, prorokiem św. Janem (powstanie tej księgi datuje się na przełom I/II w. nowej ery).

    end-of-the-world-mini-342343_960_720 (1)

    Katecheza Jana Pawła II w większości składa się z urojeń zawartych w Piśmie Świętym, podawanych bez refleksji jako fakty, dosłownie a nie jako przenośnie. Oto papież stwierdza:Działalność szatana w stosunku do ludzi objawia się przede wszystkim w kuszeniu ich do zła. Zły duch usiłuje wpłynąć na człowieka, na jego wyobraźnię oraz na wyższe władze jego duszy, by odwrócić je od prawa Bożego" (link do katechezy na końcu).

    Kościół podtrzymuje dziś w pełni całą ustaloną w średniowieczu mitologię, przyznającą diabłom i demonom fundamentalną rolę. Co najwyżej łagodzi największe nonsensy. Ciągle zależy mu, jak widać, na straszeniu wiernych diabłem, by tym sposobem – powiem bez przesady - panować nad ich umysłami. Bo jeśli człowiek do wczesnego dzieciństwa jest faszerowany irracjonalnymi wierzeniami, to nie zawsze potrafi się tego balastu pozbyć i łatwiej poddaje się wpływom kościelnych władz.

    Zło, choroby i śmierć według Kościoła

    Kościół przypisuje olbrzymie znaczenie biblijnemu mitowi o tzw. grzechu pierworodnym.

    Pierwsi ludzie zostali – jak głosi mit - skuszeni przez diabła do nieposłuszeństwa Bogu (to tzw. grzech pierworodny). Wskutek tego stali się skłonni do zła, doświadczają też chorób i śmierci. Mitologiczna opowieść biblijna jest traktowana jako rzeczywiste wyjaśnienie zła, cierpień, chorób i śmierci. Władze kościelne nie chcą powiedzieć, że mit ten niczego nie wyjaśnia, jest tylko fantastyczną opowieścią.

    Zamiast tego w Katechizmie czytamy: „Za św. Pawłem Kościół zawsze nauczał, że ogromna niedola, która przytłacza ludzi, oraz ich skłonność do zła i podleganie śmierci nie są zrozumiałe bez ich związku z grzechem Adama i faktem, że on przekazał nam grzech, z którego skutkami rodzimy się wszyscy” (403). „Na skutek grzechu pierworodnego natura ludzka została osłabiona w swoich władzach, poddana niewiedzy, cierpieniu i panowaniu śmierci; jest ona skłonna do grzechu” (418).

    Otóż cytat ten jest jedną wielką pomyłką. Nie można twierdzić sensownie, że przekazanie nam przez Adama grzechu pierworodnego to „fakt”. Jak ktoś chce, może w to wierzyć, ale nie ma najmniejszych podstaw, by mówić że to fakt. Zresztą Katechizm zawiera ciekawe wyjaśnienie potwierdzające, że to żaden fakt: W jaki sposób grzech Adama stał się grzechem wszystkich jego potomków? (...) Przekazywanie grzechu pierworodnego jest jednak tajemnicą, której nie możemy w pełni zrozumieć" (404). Wygląda na to, że jak w Kościele ogłosi się coś bez sensu, to później mówi się, że to tajemnica, której nie można zrozumieć.

    Katechizm, w tym co mówi o przyczynach zła, chorób i śmierci, opiera się wyłącznie na mitologicznej opowieści biblijnej. Mity mają to do siebie, że niczego nie wyjaśniają. Stwarzają złudzenie wyjaśniania.

    Diabeł panuje??

    Katechizm roztacza też paranoiczną wizję panowania diabła nad światem i człowiekiem:

    „Nauka o grzechu pierworodnym (...) daje jasne spojrzenie na sytuację człowieka i jego działanie w świecie. Przez grzech pierwszych rodziców diabeł uzyskał pewnego rodzaju panowanie nad człowiekiem” (407). Czytamy też, że świat „cały … leży w mocy Złego” (409).

    To całkowity odlot. Sprostujmy Katechizm, diabeł nie zyskał panowania nad człowiekiem i światem. Raczej można przypuszczać, że autorzy Katechizmu postradali rozum lub świadomie kłamią. Strasząc ludzi obłędnymi wizjami chcą uzyskać wpływ na ich umysły.

    Błąd Katechizmu

    Na czym polega błąd popełniany przez Katechizm? Na tym, że mity religijne podaje się jako rzeczywiste wyjaśnienie zła, chorób i śmierci. Na podstawie mitów twierdzi się też, że istnieje diabeł i demony, które kuszą ludzi do złego. Sugeruje się nawet, że diabeł panuje nad światem i człowiekiem.

    Mity religijne są tylko mitami, zmyślonymi opowieściami. Przekonanie, że Katechizm i Pismo Święte mówią prawdę o istnieniu diabła, o grzechu pierworodnym i przyczynach zła, chorób i śmierci, jest pozbawione jakiegokolwiek uzasadnienie poza samą wiarą religijną. Sytuacja katolików jest nie do pozazdroszczenia. Władze kościelne podają irracjonalne wyjaśnienia i każą w nie wierzyć.

    Kościelni autorzy próbują czasami łagodzić wymowę mitów i nauk o diable. Ale wygląda to na przysłowiowe odwracanie kota ogonem. Najpierw pisze się nonsensy, a później się to odkręca.

    Powstaje też ciekawy problem: Ilu biskupów, księży i szeregowych katolików rzeczywiście wierzy w istnienie diabłów? Ilu tylko mówi i udaje, że wierzy? I czy Jan Paweł II rzeczywiście wierzył w nauki o diable i demonach, które głosił?

    W najgorszej sytuacji są ci katolicy, którzy rzeczywiście w istnienie wszechobecnych demonów uwierzyli. Są tacy. W związku z intensywnym nauczaniem religii w Polsce, obecnie wzrasta liczba poważnych zaburzeń psychicznych na tle religijnym (są to w szczególności nerwice eklezjogenne i rzekome opętania przez szatana).

    Rzeczywiste przyczyny zła

    Wiedzy o rzeczywistych przyczynach zła, agresji, chorób i śmierci dostarczają nauki biologiczne. Nie mówią one o jakimś mitologicznym, wyimaginowanym grzechu pierworodnym, ani o diable i demonach, bo nie ma najmniejszych podstaw, by coś takiego brać pod uwagę.

    Tylko słów parę o przyczynach zła, rozumianego jako agresja. W sprawie przyczyn chorób i śmierci odsyłam chociażby do Wikipedii.

    anger-1300528_960_720Agresja (zachowanie agresywne) to zabicie, pobicie, przemoc fizyczna, a także ranienie słowem, celowe krzywdzenia, dokuczanie, poniżanie, znęcanie się.

    Agresja, przede wszystkim fizyczna, jest powszechna wśród zwierząt. Nie ma się więc czemu dziwić, że występuje także wśród ludzi, którzy są – czy to się komuś podoba, czy nie - jednym z gatunków zwierząt. Zwierzęta walczą ze sobą o terytorium, o pozycję w grupie, o dostęp do partnera seksualnego, o pożywienie. Polują, bronią się przed napastnikiem.

    Zachowania agresywne wykształciły się w toku ewolucji. Są jednym ze sposobów przystosowywania się organizmów biologicznych do warunków otoczenia, stwarzają szansę życia i przeżycia. Również ludzkie zachowania agresywne ukształtowały się ewolucyjnie jako czynnik sprzyjający przetrwaniu.

    Popędy, pchające do agresji, zlokalizowane są u ludzi i innych zwierząt w najstarszej ewolucyjnie części mózgu. Jest to tzw. jądro migdałowe, nazywane też mózgiem gadzim. Zlokalizowane są tam takie uczucia, jak pragnienie jedzenia i seksu, czy też poczucie zimna. Jak wskazują badania mózgu prowadzone za pomocą neuroobrazowania, w tej najstarszej warstwie mózgu znajduje się zarówno źródło agresji, jak i – co ciekawe - źródło zachowań polegających na współpracy, pomocy i empatii. Wskazuje to na głębokie ewolucyjne uwarunkowanie tych dwóch odmiennych rodzajów zachowań.

    Trzeba podkreślić, że ewolucyjnie wykształciły się nie tylko zachowania agresywne, ale także zachowania kooperacyjne, takie jak współpraca, pomaganie, opieka nad potomstwem, grupowa solidarność, dzielenie się żywnością, zgodne współżycie, zabawa. U wielu gatunków, np. małp, słoni, delfinów, nie tylko u ludzi, występuje empatia, tj. współczucie.

    Czy to wyjaśnienia zadowalające? Religijni autorzy zarzucają często nauce, że nie wyjaśnia wszystkiego. Co odpowiedzieć? Nigdy nie można wyjaśnić wszystkiego, zawsze pojawiają się nowe pytania. Nauka jednak wyjaśnia dużo. Natomiast religia nic nie wyjaśnia, podaje fikcyjne, mitologiczne wyjaśnienia. A powielanie dziś w Kościele starożytnych mitów i wyobrażeń o diable, demonach i grzechu pierworodnym, to karykatura religii. Religia, która takie rzeczy głosi do dziś w najważniejszych swych dokumentach, kompromituje sama siebie. - Alvert Jann

    Katecheza Jana Pawła II o upadłych aniołach wygłoszona 13 sierpnia 1986 r.

    Głoszenie królestwa Bożego zawsze oznacza zwycięstwo nad diabłem, ale jego budowanie stale narażone jest na zasadzki złego ducha. Mówić o tym – co zmierzamy uczynić podczas dzisiejszej katechezy – znaczy przygotowywać się do walki, która w tym ostatecznym czasie dziejów zbawienia jest właściwa życiu Kościoła (jak twierdzi tekst Apokalipsy, por. 12, 7).


    Równocześnie pozwala to wyjaśnić słuszną wiarę Kościoła, głoszoną w obliczu tych, którzy wprowadzają doń zamieszanie, przypisując zbyt duże znaczenie roli szatana, oraz tych, którzy negują bądź minimalizują jego złowrogą moc (…). Ten „upadek”, który posiada charakter odrzucenia Boga, a co za tym idzie – potępienia, jest stanem dobrowolnie wybranym przez tych wśród duchów stworzonych, którzy radykalnie i nieodwracalnie odrzucili Boga i Jego królestwo, chcąc zagarnąć Jego władzę i zburzyć ekonomię zbawienia oraz porządek całego stworzonego wszechświata. Echem tego są słowa, które brzmią u początku biblijnych dziejów człowieka: będziecie jako Bóg lub jako bogowie (por. Rdz 3, 5). W słowach tych zły duch usiłuje przeszczepić na człowieka tę wewnętrzną postawę rywalizacji, nieposłuszeństwa i opozycji wobec Boga, która jest jakby osią całej jego egzystencji.


    Opowieść o upadku człowieka, przekazana przez Stary Testament w Księdze Rodzaju, nawiązuje do owej postawy rywalizacji, którą szatan usiłuje wzbudzić w człowieku, aby skłonić go do występku (por. Rdz 3,5). Także w Księdze Hioba (por. 1, 11; 2, 5.7) czytamy, że szatan usiłuje wywołać bunt u cierpiącego człowieka. W Księdze Mądrości (por. 2, 24) szatan jest przedstawiony jako sprawca śmierci, która weszła w dzieje człowieka wraz z grzechem.


    Nauka Kościoła, przedstawiona na Soborze Laterańskim IV (1215 r.), głosi, że diabeł (czy szatan) i inne demony zostali stworzeni przez Boga jako dobre duchy, a stali się złymi z własnej woli (Denz. 428 [800]). Tak więc czytamy w Liście św. Judy: Pan (…) aniołów, tych, którzy nie zachowali swojej godności, ale opuścili własne mieszkanie, spętanych wiekuistymi więzami, zatrzymał w ciemnościach na sąd wielkiego dnia (w. 6). Podobnie w Drugim Liście św. Piotra, gdzie czytamy o aniołach, którzy zgrzeszyli, a Bóg im nie odpuścił, ale wydał [ich] do ciemnych lochów Tartaru, aby byli zachowani na sąd (2, 4). Jeśli Bóg nie odpuszcza grzechu aniołów, to z tej racji, że trwają oni w swym grzechu, że są wiekuiście spętani wiązami tego wyboru, jakiego dokonali na początku, odrzucając Boga wbrew prawdzie o Dobru najwyższym i ostatecznym, którym Bóg sam jest. W tym sensie pisze św. Jan, że diabeł trwa w grzechu od początku (1 J 3, 8). Od początku był on zabójcą i w prawdzie nie wytrwał, bo prawdy w nim nie ma (J 8, 44).


    Powyższe teksty pozwalają nam zrozumieć naturę i wielkość grzechu szatana, który polegał właśnie na odrzuceniu prawdy o Bogu, poznanym w świetle rozumu i Objawienia jako nieskończone Dobro, jako Miłość i Świętość sama. A grzech ten był tym większy, im większa była doskonałość i przenikliwość poznawcza rozumu anielskiego, im większa jego wolność oraz pierwotna bliskość w stosunku do Boga. Odrzucając tę prawdę o Bogu aktem swojej wolnej woli, szatan staje się jakby kosmicznym kłamcą i ojcem kłamstwa (J 8, 44): sam żyje w radykalnej negacji Boga i zarazem to własne, tragiczne kłamstwo o Dobru, jakim jest Bóg. usiłuje narzucić stworzeniu, innym istotom stworzonym na obraz Boga, a w szczególności ludziom. W Księdze Rodzaju znajdujemy precyzyjny zapis takiego właśnie zakłamania prawdy o Bogu. które szatan (pod postacią węża) usiłuje przekazać pierwszym przedstawicielom rodzaju ludzkiego, mówiąc, że Bóg nakłada na człowieka pewne ograniczenia, gdyż zazdrośnie strzeże swoich przywilejów (por. Rdz 3,5). Szatan nakłania człowieka, by wyzwolił się spod tego jarzma i stał się jak Bóg.


    W swym egzystencjalnym zakłamaniu szatan staje się – jak mówi św. Jan – także zabójcą, czyli niszczycielem tego nadprzyrodzonego życia, jakie Bóg od początku zaszczepił w nim samym, a także w stworzeniach będących z natury obrazem Boga: w innych czystych duchach i w ludziach. Szatan chce zniszczyć życie wedle prawdy, życie w pełni dobra, nadprzyrodzone życie łaski i miłości. Dlatego autor Księgi Mądrości pisze: śmierć weszła na świat przez zawiść diabła i doświadczają jej ci, którzy do niego należą (Mdr 2, 24). W Ewangelii zaś Chrystus przestrzega: Bójcie się raczej Tego, który duszę i ciało może zatracić w piekle (Mt 10,28).


    Na skutek grzechu pierwszych rodziców ów upadły anioł zdobył w pewnej mierze panowanie nad człowiekiem. Naukę tę, stale wyznawaną i głoszoną przez Kościół, potwierdził Sobór Trydencki w Dekrecie o grzechu pierworodnym (por. Denz. 788 [1511]). Wyraża się ona w sposób dramatyczny w liturgii chrztu św., która wzywa katechumena do wyrzeczenia się szatana i jego spraw. Ów wpływ na człowieka, pewne panowanie nad dyspozycjami jego ducha (i ciała), znajduje odzwierciedlenie w Piśmie św., gdzie szatan bywa nazywany księciem tego świata(por. J 12, 31; 14, 30; 16, 11), a nawet bogiem tego świata (por. 2 Kor 4, 4). Znajdujemy poza tym wiele innych nazw określających jego zgubne kontakty z człowiekiem, takie jak Belzebub lub Belial, poza tym duch nieczysty, kusiciel, zły, wreszcie Antychryst (1 J4, 3). Oprócz tego znajdujemy porównania do lwa (1 P 5, 8), do smoka (w Apokalipsie) oraz do węża (Rdz 3). Bardzo często jest używane określenie diabeł – od wyrażenia greckiego diaballein (stąd diabolos), co znaczy: powodować zniszczenie, dzielić, rzucać oszczerstwa, oszukiwać. Prawdę mówiąc, to wszystko przejawia się od początku w działalności złego ducha, którego Pismo św. przedstawia jako osobę, równocześnie wskazując na to, że nie jest sam: jest nas wielu – wołają do Jezusa duchy nieczyste w kraju Gerazeńczyków (por. Mk 5, 9); diabeł i jego aniołowie – mówi Jezus w opisie Sądu Ostatecznego (por. Mt 25,41).


    Pismo św., a zwłaszcza Nowy Testament, w wielu miejscach mówi o tym, że panowanie i działanie szatana oraz innych złych duchów obejmuje cały świat. Świadczy o tym choćby przypowieść Chrystusa o roli (którą jest świat), o dobrym nasieniu i o złym, które diabeł zasiewa jakby chwast wśród pszenicy, starając się równocześnie wyrywać z serc to dobro, jakie zostało w nich zasiane (por. Mt 13, 38-39). I stąd też te liczne wezwania do czujności (por. Mt 26,41; 1 P 5, 8), do modlitwy i postu (por. Mt 17,21). Stąd dobitne stwierdzenie Pana Jezusa: Ten rodzaj można wyrzucić tylko modlitwą (Mk 9,29). Działalność szatana w stosunku do ludzi objawia się przede wszystkim w kuszeniu ich do zła. Zły duch usiłuje wpłynąć na człowieka, na jego wyobraźnię oraz na wyższe władze jego duszy, by odwrócić je od prawa Bożego. „Szczytowym” przejawem tego działania jest kuszenie samego Chrystusa (por. Łk4, 3-13), w którym szatan usiłuje stanąć na przeszkodzie ustanowionym przez Boga wymogom ekonomii zbawienia.


    W pewnych wypadkach działalność złego ducha wywiera wpływ nie tylko na rzeczy materialne, ale może posunąć się również do owładnięcia ciałem człowieka, wtedy mówimy o opętaniu (por. Mk 5, 2-9). Nie zawsze łatwo jest określić to, co w tego rodzaju wypadkach jest wynikiem działania sił nadprzyrodzonych. Kościół nie popiera i nie może popierać tendencji do zbyt pochopnego przypisywania wielu faktom bezpośredniego działania demona. Zasadniczo nie może jednak zaprzeczyć temu, że szatan, powodowany chęcią szkodzenia i prowadzenia do zła, może posunąć się do tego krańcowego przejawu swojej wyższości.


    Wypada nam dodać na koniec, że wstrząsające słowa Jana apostoła: cały (…) świat leży w mocy złego (1 J 5, 19), wskazują na obecność szatana w historii ludzkości, nasilającą się w miarę jak człowiek i społeczeństwa odsuwają się od Boga. Wówczas też wpływ złego ducha może się pełniej i skuteczniej „zakonspirować”, co z pewnością odpowiada jego „interesom”. Najskuteczniej może on działać wówczas, gdy udaje mu się skłonić człowieka, by zaprzeczył jego istnieniu w imię racjonalizmu lub jakiegokolwiek innego prądu myślowego, który nie chce wiedzieć o jego działaniu w świecie. Oczywiście działalność szatana nie eliminuje wolnej woli oraz odpowiedzialności człowieka ani też nie niweczy zbawczego działania Chrystusa. Chodzi tu raczej o konflikt pomiędzy ciemnymi siłami zła a siłą odkupienia. Jakże przejmujące są w związku z tym słowa, które Chrystus u progu swej męki wypowiedział do Piotra: Szymonie, oto szatan domagał się, żeby was przesiać jak pszenicę; ale Ja prosiłem za tobą, żeby nie ustała twoja wiara (Łk 22, 31-32).
    Rozumiemy więc teraz, dlaczego Pan Jezus w tak stanowczy sposób kończy modlitwę królestwa Bożego Ojcze nasz, której nas nauczył, w odróżnieniu od wielu innych modlitw tamtych czasów, przypominając nam o tym, że w życiu jesteśmy stale narażeni na podstępne działanie Zła-Złego. Chrześcijanin, zwracając się do Ojca w duchu Jezusa i wzywając Jego królestwa, woła z całą mocą swojej wiary: Nie wódź nas na pokuszenie, wybaw nas od Zła, ode Złego. Spraw, Panie, byśmy nie zgrzeszyli niewiernością, do której namawia nas ten, który od samego początku był niewierny.

    Post „Diabeł i inne demony” pojawił się poraz pierwszy w PolskiAteista.pl.


              Frightening the Horses   
    When asked to comment on a supposed homosexual relationship between two of her colleagues, British stage actress Mrs. Patrick Campbell (her stage name) made a comment which has become legendary.
    Does it really matter what these affectionate people do-- so long as they don't do it in the streets and frighten the horses!
    Hay! How you doin'?
    I suppose there are two ways to look at this comment (which has been widely quoted, misquoted, and even mis-attributed). The first is to interpret it as saying that homosexuals should keep themselves hidden from public view. The second way to interpret it (and the way I choose) is to take it as a whimsical remark saying: who cares what they do? What harm could possibly come of it?

    This quote came to mind when my attention was drawn to this article, Conservative Men in Conservative Dresses, which was mentioned and discussed over on Thorin's blog. Written by Amy Bloom, and published in Atlantic Monthly in 2002, it is a ruthless (but not wholly unsympathetic) critique of male crossdressers. Bloom is observant, smart and articulate, and the article is well worth reading in its entirety. But it really hurts, and I've been struggling with my reaction to the article all week. The sub-title, taken from the body of the article, is this:
    The world of crossdressers is for the most part a world of traditional men, traditional marriages, and truths turned inside out.
    And the first line begins:
    Bloom: Heterosexual cross-dressers bother almost everyone.
    In the first half of the article, Bloom describes crossdressers. Distinct from transsexuals; distinct from drag queens. She talks to Ray Blanchard, and repeats some of his well-trodden dictums. Some of these, you will know, I agree with, including the one that crossdressers don't want to be like women; they want to be like men think women are. She talks to Tri-Ess, and quotes some of their material. So far, so non-descript. However, this material is probably new to the readership of the Atlantic, who are probably unfamiliar with the background.
    Blanchard: Of course it's not relaxing. Heels and makeup and a wig and a corset? It's preposterous. Even women don't find that relaxing. Relaxing is a pair of sweatpants, clothing that doesn't even feel like clothing. Cross-dressers want to normalize this, to have it seen as relaxation and self-expression. Cross-dressing is an attempt to resolve an internal conflict, and it's not about fabric. If we had clothing for men and women that was identical in every way except men wore shirts with four buttons and women had shirts with five, cross-dressers would want more than anything to have the shirt with five. We don't know why.
    Matronly: the Two Ronnies
    I happen to agree with this viewpoint; it's not about the clothes! I would say that my crossdressing feelings are not about the clothes but about the role or expectations society has for me. It's a question I often ask myself (and consider on this blog): what would happen if men and women were all truly free to wear whatever they want? I think Blanchard's interpretation of the answer is as good as any other. And I absolutely do have an "internal conflict", whether it pleases me to admit it or not.
    Bloom: This seems to me to be the heart of cross-dressers' dilemma, and the heart of mine in writing about them. Cross-dressing is a compulsion, but we must not see it as a sickness. A good wife should tolerate it because the man has no choice, but it isn't too hard to tolerate because it's a gift. It is about fun and pleasure—and it's a necessity. The necessity of cross-dressing is frightening to the men and to their wives, and their wish to tame it, to characterize it as a preference and a gift, is understandable.
    In the second half of the article, Bloom deliberately goes on a cruise, with 25 crossdressers and their wives. She takes time to get to know them, motivated by an interest "in the less common ways in which people inhabit their gender". Bloom describes the appearance of the crossdressers.
    Bloom: I have met cross-dressers whose presentation is just this side of Christina Aguilera [but] they look more like my formidable fourth grade teacher, a big, tall woman with a bolster-like bosom, thick legs, sensible pumps, hennaed hair, and twin spots of rouge on her cheeks. They have the matronly look so common to straight cross-dressers. A pronounced face requires pronounced makeup, and after the false eyelashes and even the subtlest contouring of the wider jaw and the thick brow, one can look beautiful or ridiculous, but one cannot look like most of the women around.
    How they see themselves?
    She describes how most of the crossdressers are eager to talk about themselves (something I can certainly relate to!) But then Bloom starts to discuss the wives.
    Bloom: Sometimes the wives wish to come, to support their husbands and to enjoy the trip, or to hang out with other wives, like golf widows or wives in Al-Anon. Some come because their husbands need them to. Happy wives are everyone's favorites, but happy or cowed, enthusiastic or grimly accepting, the wives at these functions are simultaneously objects of much public appreciation and utterly secondary to the men's business.
    It would be easy to dismiss this entire article as full of hostility, but I don't think it is. I think it is the result of someone who has really taken a good look at crossdressing, and come to her own (somewhat ruthless, but not entirely unsympathetic) conclusions. I suspect that Bloom and Helen Boyd would find much common ground.
    Bloom: I come to see why so many women find themselves sympathetic to cross-dressers: Women are raised to be sympathetic, and protective toward the vulnerable, and there is something sweet, unexpected, and powerful about being a woman and sympathizing with a man not because he demands it but because you genuinely feel sorry for him, for his debilitating envy and his fear of discovery and his sense of powerlessness to live as he wants.
    Debilitating envy? Check. Fear of discovery? Check. Sense of powerlessness? Check. Add in guilt and shame, and it would be a full house! But for me, the most powerful parts of the article are the vignettes of conversation with the various crossdressers and their wives. Here, she discusses "Felicity".
    Bloom: On the third night of the cruise Felicity comes to dinner "en drab" as they say, looking like what he is— a heavyset Baptist minister who worked construction in his youth. With a flourish the headwaiter delivers roses to his wife, to applause from our four tables. Felicity puts his big hand on hers and squeezes it. He makes a toast to their thirty years of marriage and to her goodness and support. He begins to choke up; her remote look never changes. I can see that she is not pleased that he decided to dress like a man for her tonight. She is not pleased that he is so grateful to her for trying to believe that he cross-dresses only because he cannot express his warm and nurturing self while wearing trousers. Nor is she pleased, God knows, to sit with a bunch of men in makeup and dresses, some modest, some outrageous, some passable, most not, and call it an anniversary party.

    Felicity says, "It's like there are three of me in this little boat: the husband, the cross-dresser, and the minister. I can hear the falls approaching, and I know, I know with all  my heart, one of us will not survive this ride." He begins to cry, and I get tears in my eyes. As I hand him some tissues, his wife glares at me and says, "You sure do get involved with your interviews".  She must think that some pretty fancy footwork is required to wind up so sorry for the crossdresser and not for the wife; when I look at her sympathetically, she almost spits. Pity from people like me is not what she wants either.

    The men I met were by and large decent, kind, intelligent, and willing to talk openly. Their wives were the same, many of them under the additional pressure of having to make the best accommodation they can to a marriage they did not envision and do not prefer.
    The final section is the one which Thorin quotes; the one where Bloom talks about crossdressing as an exclusively sexual fetish.
    Bloom: The greatest difficulty people have with cross-dressers, I think, is that cross-dressers wear their fetish, and the gleam in their eyes, however muted by time or habit, the unmistakable presence of a lust being satisfied or a desire being fulfilled in that moment, in your presence, even by your presence, is unnerving. The combination of the cross-dressers' own arousal and anxiety and our responsive anxiety and discomfort is more than most of us can bear. We may not mind foot fetishists, but we may not wish to watch them either.
    Wearing her fetish?
    This notion touches on what another of my correspondents called, with unmatchable turn of phrase, "wanking in public". It is clear that Bloom considers this to be what crossdressing is: a sexual fetish expressed publicly. Perhaps she is worried about the horses.

    So much for the article. Why does it upset me so much? Because I can see truth in it. I can pretend that none of it applies to me, but the fact that it makes me deeply uncomfortable doesn't make it wrong. I seem to fit Bloom's model pretty well: educated, professional, intelligent, kind, and willing to talk openly.

    I do wonder what other people see when they see Vivienne. I am sure they don't see the same as I see. I wonder if they look at me with abhorrence, with scorn, or with pity, with silent tolerance rather than open acceptance. But I can cope with all that. What is worse is something Grayson Perry touched on: crossdressing causes everyone a lot of pain; the crossdresser himself, and his spouse (and sometimes their kids).

    My wife really struggles with crossdressing, and we are a long way from her coming with me on a cruise where I can wear a dress every day. And yet a very good description of my wife would be "having to make the best accommodation she can to a marriage she did not envision and does not prefer". Grimly accepting, indeed.

    I had hoped to summon a series of carefully constructed arguments to demolish Bloom's article, but I find I cannot. What she describes is not my present, but it comes uncomfortably close to what might possibly be my future.

    Interestingly, Atlantic Monthly doesn't seem to have this article available in its online archives, though other articles from the same issue are available. I wonder if it has been deliberately withdrawn, and if so, why?

    I can make some points, though. Whether Bloom likes it or not, my own crossdressing desires will never go away. I would rather not be this way, and I would really rather not cause anyone else (especially my wife) any discomfort as a result.

    The fact that this is the way I am does not make me a bad person. It does not make me cruel, manipulative, exploitative or otherwise objectionable. Trust me when I say, I have a host of positive attributes. There are a lot of behaviours out there which are a lot worse than crossdressing, which seem to be tolerated.

    I think things are changing. I don't think all crossdressers fit with Bloom's archetype (even she says as much), and I think that public crossdressing is becoming commoner (and less noteworthy) all the time. A generation ago, if we had seen two men or two women showing affection publicly, there might have been societal discomfort or even overt disapproval. These days, it's no big deal any more (though no doubt, disapproval persists in some quarters). Is homosexuality a fetish? Are gay people acting out their fetish in public? Surely homosexuality is all about sex? Actually no. But people may well have felt that way once. And in the same way, perhaps crossdressing will come to be accepted as nothing out of the ordinary. Nobody bothers any more to ask why some people are gay. The accepted answer is: they just are.

    I can promise you one thing in closing. No matter what I wear, no matter how high my heels, or how red my lipstick, the horses will not mind one little bit.

    I sent an email to Amy Bloom via her publisher, telling her the article was continuing to provoke debate, and inviting her to comment. I received this reply:
    Sorry! I wish to thank you for the invitation and say that I am currently up to my eyes in a new novel. I don't have the psychic room, right now, to engage with other, interesting projects.

    Regards,

              The Dark Eldar Beaststar - we can rebuild you [40k DE]   


    What was the Beaststar ?
    [a Beaststar gets ready to support an Eldar army, link to battle report]

    A bit of history, the Beaststar came from the previous Dark Eldar codex.  In that codex you could have up to 5 beastmasters in a unit, and each beastmaster could bring 0-1 Clawed Fiend or 0-2 Razorwing Flocks or 0-5 Krymerae.  What you could do was take 5 beastmasters and 25 Krymerae to make a big fast assault unit.  Then add in the Baron, a cheap (105 points) special character who gave the unit a higher leadership (ld9), Hit and Run & Stealth.  Back then the Krymerae were only toughness 3, but sported a 4+ invulnerable save, so another buff was having a nearby farseer give them a reroll on their save making for an resilient unit with loads of wounds that could not be tied down by a blob and would kill units by the weight of attacks.

    All this changed when the new codex arrived :(  The maximum size of the beastpack was changed to 12 models, although you can now freely pick any of the available models to make up the unit.  The Baron who gave the unit so many nice rules also disappeared from the codex.


    Can we rebuild the Beaststar

    Although we can only have 12 models in a beast pack now, we can have more than 12 wounds by using Clawed Fiends.  Clawed Fiends got a bit better and cheaper in the new codex, being a poor man's Grotesque while not requiring a transport.

    Now we could go for 12 Clawed Fiends, but it costs a whopping 360 points, for 36, toughness 5, wounds.  While doable this is a huge unit before you add any characters.  Krymerae are still not bad in the new codex; they went down by 2 points each, while going up to toughness 4 for the cost of their invulnerable save going down to 5+ from 4+.  By adding in some Krymerae we can have the best of both worlds, majority toughness 5 while also have the first shots go against the Krymerae's invulnerable save.

    My starter for 10 Beaststar is:
    1 Beastmaster
    5 Krymerae
    6 Clawed Fiends
    totalling 240 points, 24 wounds (majority toughness 5) and a total of 2 Str 3, 15 Str 4 & 36 Str 5 attacks on the charge.  However please note this unit is all about the charge as the Clawed Fiends have Rage.  The unit would drop to 1 Str 3, 10 Str 4 & 24 Str 5 attacks if they are charged or it is the 2nd round of a combat.

    Why the beastmaster rather than a 6th Krymerae ?  It's not really for the leadership 8, its really that the three options for a decent character to join the unit is toughness 4 (see below), so having one Beastmaster keeps the majority toughness at 5 after the character joins.  Another option would be to add a 7th Clawed Fiend instead of the Beastmaster pushing the unit up to 260 points.


    Leadership 8 is Not Enough

    As a unit get large in size, and more importantly points value your whole game will depend on whether than unit performs well or not.  It also means it could be game over if a unit fails a critical leadership test.  For the beaststar I propose leadership 8 is not really enough.  In most games an opponent will see it as a threat and it is not that tough so it will be easy to force a morale test (4 casualties required).  In this case you can't have a nearly 1 in 3 chance that the rest of the unit will run off the board.  Leadership 9 is a minimum requirement, leadership 10 is better while being fearless is ideal.  So bare this in mind when choosing which character should be used to supplement the Beaststar.


    How do Star's fail ?

    When looking at what character we might want to add to the Beaststar, we have to ask what does the Beaststar really need, and what will prevent it doing well in a game.

    1) As mentioned above morale is fickle thing, and you can't have so many points invested in a unit which has anything but a very small chance of running off the table due to a morale check, being fearless would be preferable.

    2) Being bogged down - some armies can have fearless cheap large units which will tie up the beaststar all game, large guard blobs with 4+ inv save come to mind, or really any large unit which has had invisibility cast on it.  Alternatively they may be too tough for the beaststar to deal with, eg. thunderwolf cav.  In this case the Beaststar needs a way to get out of these bad match-ups and on to better targets.  Previously the Beaststar used the Baron who had Hit and Run, so another character with Hit and Run would be useful.  Its possible to play the Beaststar without Hit and Run, but you have to be careful not to be tied down by a bad match-up.

    3) Unlike other deathstars the Beaststar is not that tough (it has lots of wounds, 24, but has very poor armour saves) so anything that can improve it's resilience would be a great help

    4) The beaststar can't deal with heavy rear armour or walkers (non-walker vehicles with poor rear armour will be ripped apart by the beaststar), so anything that can help with Walkers or units with high rear armour would be nice



    The Contenders


    Up first we have the Eldar Autarch.  Stock he gives the Beaststar leadership 10, and helps with reserve rolls.

    First upgrade you must give him is something to increase his speed.  Unlike some deathstars such as Necron Wraiths with Characters the Beaststar can not afford to be slowed down by a character with the basic 6" move.  The beaststar (and more importantly the rest of the Dark Eldar army) does not have the resilience to play the waiting game, it must rip the strategic heart of the enemy in the first 3 turns, and can not afford to play the attrition game.  Options for speed are Swooping Hawk wings, a Jetbike or a Warp Jump Generator.  I would advise against the Warp Jump generator because the Autarch would not be able to flicker jump in the Beastpack, and even if he could the unit couldn't.  Swooping Hawk Wings gives him great speed being able to move 18" in the movement phase, great for springing from the back to near the front of the unit in preparation for a charge.  However the Jetbike gives the Autarch toughness 4, the option for a very ling move of 48" if he leaves the beastpack, plus relentless allowing him to fire a heavy weapon on the move (eg. a repear missile launcher).  Ultimately it's down to your personal preference, but I would advise the Jetbike.

    The Autarch can also choose more wargear to help the beastpack.  He can have a Banshee mask, meaning the unit charged can not fire overwatch at the beastpack, allowing them to easily charge units they may have worried about, eg. units with lots of shots and/or flamers, D-scythe armed wraithguard or large blobs come to mind.  The Autarch can also include include some anti tank weapons in either a fusion gun or a reaper missile launcher.  The Autarch can include some extra combat punch to unit, taking advantage of his high Weapon skill, Initiative and Attacks.  If on a bike a lance is nice, but even a basic power weapon would help against marines with their 3+ save.

    Finally if you want to go the extra mile the Autarch can take the relic than makes him fearless.  However please note that with the cost of a Jetbike or Wings, a ranged weapon, a lance or a relic weapon and the cost of the Autarch can get quite costly, moving the cost of the Autarch and the Beastpack quite expensive.

    When it gets to that level of points you have to ask yourself would two slightly smaller beastpacks be better than one with a Character, but that's a question for all 3 contenders.


    Next up we have the Eldar Farseer.  This time we have only one option to improve his speed which is to put him on a jetbike.  Rather than some combat punch and a bit of shooting, the Farseer adds loads of support to the unit through his psychic powers.  From the basic rerolls to hit powers the Farseer can really up the surviveability of unit through castings of invisibility or the power to reroll saves which is great on the invulnerable saves of the Krymerae.

    The Farseer is also good at supporting the rest of your army with his psychic powers.  Another good use of the Farseer psychic powers is using spells such as Psychic Shriek to deal with opposing units the beastpack might find differcult to kill (the beastpack will struggle against units with good and/or rerollable saves).


    The Baron Rebron


    The best thing about the old Baron Sathonyx was that he was cheap, and had Hit & Run, meaning it was hard to pin the beastpack down, and the distance they could travel between the end of the opponent's combat phase to the end of their next charge was phenomenal and easy to catch an opponent off guard.  The average distance was 29.5" (3D6" Hit & Run, 12" Move, 2D6 Charge).

    So what character can give us Hit & Run ?  It's Baharroth "The Cry of the Wind" the Swooping Hawk Phoenix Lord.  He comes in at a very reasonable 65 points over the cost of the old Baron.  Although he doesn't have the Stealth of the Baron, he does bring toughness 4, a 2+ armour save, Eternal Warrior, a faster 18" move, and even Haywire grenades.  Baharroth also Fearless, meaning once the Beaststar can stand a round of combat without getting too depleted they can Hit & Run away (provided they don't roll a 6) and charge something else.

    As I have a converted Baron model (there never was an official model) I plan to add the Autarch Swooping Wings to him, however so far my search of ebay and my usual bitz sites have turned up a blank.  I'm going to keep watching and I'm sure I'll come up with a pair of wings soon.  Below's a picture of my Baron after assembly (I suddenly realised I don't have any pictures of him painted):



    Overall the three character options all add something nice to the beastpack, with each giving different benefits.  Being Eldar characters they all require a troops choice to make an Allied Detachment to keep the army bound, buts that's not hard with cheap and effective Eldar Jetbikes.  You can either go with the 3 unupgraded jetbike to do the 5th edition come from reserve to do a last turn objective hop, or for 16 points more than a dual splinter cannon venom you can upgrade the 12 poison shots to 12 str 6 shots.

    This is still theory hammer at the moment, but as soon as I find some Autarch wings I'm going to slap them on my Baron, paint them up and give the new Beaststar a whirl.  They aren't as good as most tournament deathstar, eq. Necron Lychstar with associated characters or Thunderstar with friends but they can dish out the pain to most units in this shooting centric 7th edition, and plays well with the glass cannon approach of Dark Eldar.  Lastly as most people have not played against Clawed Fiends I don't some people may underestimate how hard the unit will hit.

    So here's my revised Beaststar, ready for playtesting:

    Phoenix Lord Baharroth "The Cry of the Wind"
    5 Krymerae
    7 Clawed Fiends

    430 points for a fast but fragile-ish (unit that puts out on the charge 42 Str 5 attacks, 20 str 4 attacks & 5 Str4 power weapon attacks.  I think the rest of the army would need to put a bit more than usual focus on low ap weapons and anti tank to face walkers, Imperial Knights, Wraithknights, Stormsurges etc., but nearly everything else can taken care of by the Beaststar or avoided while the Beaststar takes apart the rest of the enemy army.

    Do you think this unit could work ?  Is it viable in a casual or competitive setting ? What do you see as its biggest weaknesses ?  I'd love to hear your thoughts on the unit.

              Adepticon 2016 Meta - A follow up look at the Meta after LVO [40k]   

    So it's only 2 months since the LVO, and another one of the large US tournaments has come round, this time Adepticon.  Adepticon has different comp to the LVO, in that it basically doesn't have any, so you can unleash unrestricted D, unrestricted Invisibility and as many detachments as you want.  I was interested to see if two things had happened:

    • Would this change the top armies much ?
    • Would there be an improvement in the Performance and a narrowing of the spread of performance for Tau & Necrons (which had rather larger spreads of performance in my analysis of the LVO, here, than I expected.
    What intrigued me to do another analysis was two comments that I read/heard in passing about the event.  One was while watching Reece Robbins (of Frontline Gaming who run the LVO) explaining that his list for LVO was not good against Tau because he was not expecting there to be many Tau at the event because of the format.  Now I now Tau don't have psykers so can't have or fight against full Invisibility too well, plus their D weapons are limited on 4 one shot weapons that need markerlights to be D on one model in the Tau range, but they are still a good army.

    The second comment game from the Blood of Kittens review of the event. here, where they said:
    "If you take a look at the lists you will notice one army dominated over the rest: Eldar. Eldar have seven spots in the Top 18 and a few more Eldar shoehorned into other lists! All the Eldar lists had at least one Wraithknight and Scatbike units. Adepticon has full powered D Weapons, so with Eldar having the easiest access this wasn’t a surprise. Still, this is amazingly dominate army, the only other time I can remember an army performing so well was the Grey Knights  at the end of 5th edition. What is impressive are Eldar don’t have any way to get free upgrades or units, they don’t seem to need it. Unless future army rules find a way to easily kill Warp Spiders and Scatbikes I don’t expect Eldar domination to end anytime soon" - now Eldar were already dominate at LVO, but this sounded like they did even better, so was this an exageration or did Eldar really improve in their performance, I thought that with more time people would get better at fighting Eldar, so while good players would still very well with the army they wouldn't dominate as much as they had.

    Also Blood of Kittens hosts, here, all the top 18 lists if you want to look at the actual lists of the top players.

    Ok, so on to the number crunching to see what happened (but before we do I refer you to my last article, here, where I included some of the limitations of any number crunching):

    First lets start out with the number of players, by primary detachment, and I think they changed the primary detachment to the detachment with the most points rather than where the warlord was:

    For this analysis I'm only going to look at armies which had 7 or more entries.  I would normally have cut off at a higher number, but I wanted to include Necrons in the analysis.  Just missing the cut were Dark Eldar and Khorne Daemonkin at 6 players each.

    Eldar in this tournament have surpassed Vanilla marines as the top army, however when you add in marines in all their varieties Marines are still the most popular, however for nearly 1 in 4 armies to be Eldar is a huge number for them (and a massice jump from the LVO where they were 1 in 7 of the armies).  It also shows that the numbers per army start to drop off very fast.  After Tau, Space Wolves & Daemons you're down to under 10 entrants.

    So how did the armies perform ?  Again I would look at average placings, but then also compare the number of placings in the top 50 and top 30, and compare that to how many players for each army there were:
    [Click on the pic to view a bigger, more readable view]
    Although they are small samples, Dark Angels and Daemons came top, followed by what I think are the top 4 armies at the moment, Eldar, Marines, Necrons & Tau.  However the average placing for Eldar is significantly lower than the rest, and this born out when we look at comparing the portion of armies in the top 50 or 30 compared to the full list, eg. Eldar made up 23% of their field, but 42% of the top 50 players.  A killer stat is that apart from Dark Angels and Daemons which had a small number of entrants the only army to have an average placing in the top half was Eldar, the nearest to them, Marines, having an average placing 30 places down just below the mid point.

    However is this better than Eldar did before ?  Due to the small size of Adepticon, the top 50 at LVO is comparable to the top 30 at Adepticon.  Looking at the top 30 at Adepticon Eldar were 1.57 more represented than they were in the general field, compared to looking at the top 50 at LVO Eldar were 1.55 more represented than the general field.

    One thing that has changed is the spread of the armies performance, particularly Eldar:
    The performance spread is much closer between the armies.  This stat shows how spread out the results of the army were.

    The real oddity is Tau with a more narrow spread of results, particularly when you consider that their average placing is just below the middle (103rd against a middle of 92nd).  I have some theoryhammer ideas as to why, but would love to read your ideas as well.  Are Tau handily beating some opponents, but then coming up with things that they just can't beat ?  Is it Invisibility and Psychic Shriek ?  Is it rerollable cover saves ?  Or just the good old fashioned fast assault threats ?  Is it the mission requiring very mobile armies while Tau players are sticking to maximum firepower and ignoring mobility ?  Or maybe a combination of all of this ?

    So overall it looks like Eldar are getting even more popular at tournaments.  The top four strongest armies are still Eldar, Marines, Necrons and Tau, however there are some less popular armies that are still doing very well, such as Dark Angels & Daemons (plus Khorne Daemonkin & Cult Mech).

    The increase in the spread of the performance of Eldar, in my opinion, means that while players are learning to beat the poor Eldar players and/or those with less optimised lists, when facing good players with optimised lists it's still really hard (not impossible) to win.


    Does this follow your idea of where the meta is, and which are the strongest codexes ?  What's your thoughts on Tau's average performance (10% of the field yet only 7% of the top 30, a drop of a third).  Yes I know a lot of armies do make the top 30 at all, but why is an army that is seem as so strong not doing better ?  It was interesting to note that Frankie (of Frontline Gaming) switched from his tournament winning Tau to a Gladius Strike Force with a Culexus Assassin & Inquisitor with Servo Skulls for this event, is Tau not quite cutting it when it comes to the big competitive tournaments ?.

    My psychic intuition has me foreseeing an imminent machete related attack occurring somewhere within the Portland city limits. I think this summer is going to be crazy, like it isn't enough already. So many folk at their wits end and nothing to lose.Thus far we have been lucky except for the one Trimet hate incident and the more or less normal rate of knife crime incidences. I don't have the stats but if I had to take a stab at it I would say knife attacks are on the rise. There is a creepy suspension vibe in the air, like the beginning of bad B slasher flick. All the reports of shirtless men sharpening and swinging machetes around seem like foreboding foreshadows. Portland isn't exactly known for its dense jungle understory. Please keep constant awareness of your surroundings. If a guy locks his wildman stare onto you and he has a machete or something then gtfo of there asafp.

    El trofoblasto: dará lugar a la placenta, necesaria e imprescindible para la comunicación con la madre en la gestación. Es un componente del sistema inmunitario innato con un papel esencial en la defensa frente a infecciones bacterianas durante la vida intrauterina.”  
    Dra. Natalia López Moratalla


    “Cuando observo al embrión veo que formas tu placenta
    ya al final de la primera semana.
    De hecho, es la primera organización del cuerpo que creas.
    Porque en el prinicipio eres uno, el cigoto. (…)
    Y luego ves que desde ese inicio, durante 9 meses,
    tu cuerpo se parte en dos,
    y una parte del cuerpo es el cuerpo central,
    es el que por ejemplo ahora está sentado en la silla (…).
    La otra parte de tu cuerpo, y que no es un añadido sino una parte de tu cuerpo,
    se convierte en tu placenta.
    Y con tu placenta tu conectascon tu madre, con el mundo...
    Con tu otra parte corporal tu desconectas...
    Así, lo que ocurre en el nacimiento no es que naces del vientre de tu madre...
    y parir no es que tu madre te saca de su vientre...
    Nacer es que mueres...
    Mueres con tu cuerpo central a tu placenta. (…)
    Tu madre te asiste en el esencial proceso de nacer,
    y nacer es morir a ti mismo.
    Es como la transformación que debes realizar
    para llegar a la siguiente fase del ser.
    En el nacimiento hay un cadáver. (…)
    Tu placenta muere (...)
    y nacer significa que debes morir a ella.”
    Dr. Jaap van der Wal

     
    Nacimiento Lotus

    La visión de la placenta como parte del verdadero ser humano integral prenatal que muestra el embriólogo van der Wal me fascina y le estoy profundamente agradecida. Con los años, ante mi creciente desconcierto y progresiva indignación al ver el mayoritario desconocimiento de esta realidad dentro del mundo médico incluso en algunos entornos de parto natural y terapéuticos, y coincidiendo con algunas noticias escandalosas recientes relacionadas con la placentofagia, me he atrevido a elaborar el presente artículo.

    Hace décadas que es sabido que las criaturas humanas estan sufriendo de manera sistemática una separación violenta de su placenta a través del corte artificial del cordón umbilical sin ninguna razón beneficiosa demostrada. Al contrario, todos los datos científicos evidencian que es perjudicial para la salud y sólo aporta en el sentido de que el bebé es más práctico de manejar... y de alejarlo de la madre. De ahí las reivindicaciones de madres y profesionales a favor de un corte del cordón lo más tarde posible.



    Según informa la web de la Asociación El Parto es Nuestro:
    Cuándo deja de latir el cordón? Sabremos que el cordón  ha dejado de latir porque se queda blanco. Es posible que lo haga a los tres minutos, a los 7, 11, 15… Suele tardar entre 10 a 30 minutos. Y es posible que si no la cortamos, después de minutos o incluso una hora vuelva a latir. El mecanismo que hace que esto sea posible no se conoce debido a la tendencia a cortar el cordón que hace que no sea posible estudiar dicho fenómeno.  Normalmente hasta que no deja de latir no se desprende la placenta, aunque hay veces que tarda un poco más. Hay que tener en cuenta que el cordón es parte del bebé, es un ógano que si late es porque está vivo y funcionando y por tanto desarrollando alguna actividad necesaria para el niño.
     
    ¿Cuáles son los beneficios del pinzamiento tardío? El cordón umbilical no debería ser pinzado antes de que deje de latir porque mientras el cordón lata, la placenta seguirá insuflando sangre en el cuerpo del bebé. Esta sangre es rica en nutrientes y proporciona una reserva de hierro al niño. Si no la recibiese el niño tendrá un déficit de reservas de hierro y puede padecer anemia, motivo por el cual se insta a las madres a comenzar con la alimentación complementaria muy pronto. Además, es una excusa perfecta para dejar al bebe sobre su madre, en lugar de cortar-provocar llanto-separar, y fomentar así el contacto piel con piel desde el primer minuto.”

    Pero todavía mucha gente sigue pensando y actuando como si la placenta perteneciera a la madre o fuera un órgano compartido con su hijo. Sigue habiendo mucha ignorancia, ya que el cordón umbilical no “comunica al bebé con su madre”; comunica su parte central con la parte externa de sí mismo (la placenta), y ésta, sí, comunica con la madre pero sólo hasta que se desprende naturalmente del útero. Ya que en el alumbramiento de la placenta, el bebé sigue siendo uno, cuerpo central y placenta unidos... Todavía está en fase de transición... ¡Todavía sigue naciendo!.

    Nacimiento Lotus

    Por tanto ante la conocida pregunta que tantos ríos de tinta está generando, “Cuál es el mejor momento para cortarle el cordón umbilical al bebé?”. Quizá la mejor respuesta sería NUNCA. Nunca se le debería cortar el cordón ya que él mismo solito lo va a hacer cuando esté preparado porque mientras siguen estando unidos físicamente, la persona ES todavía también su placenta, o sea, ese ser humano todavía está realizando con su placenta la función de autoprotección, cuidado, nutrición y conexión con el exterior.

    Hasta que no se alumbra la placenta no se considera el parto completado. Pero es que hasta que no se desprende el cordón de manera natural en el bebé, el Verdadero Nacimiento, el viaje de la consciencia desde la placenta hasta el cuerpo central,no se ha realizado aún. En ese tiempo el bebé realmente está haciendo un duelo a una parte de si mismo e integrando los cambios que implica dejar una etapa y empezar otra totalmente nueva.

    Nacimiento Lotus

    En este sentido encuentro una iniciativa bellísima el llamado Nacimiento Lotus, una práctica enmarcada en un nacimiento más eco-lógico, humano, consciente y respetado que promueve el no interrumpir ni obstaculizar el proceso natural del nacimiento del propio bebé y que sea él mismo quien deje ir su propia placenta a través del ombligo secándose de manera espontánea, hecho que suele durar entre unos 3 y 10 días, para luego proceder a un ritual especial de despedida del cadáver de la placenta, como enterrarla, por ejemplo.

    Nacimiento Lotus

    “La placenta y el cordón,
    aunque a nivel físico ya no funcionan,
    están energéticamente muy activos
    durante unos 2 días después del nacimiento
    .”
    “El Nacimiento Lotus respeta el tiempo del bebé
    para desconectarse de su placenta
    y estar en este mundo.
    Al hacer honor a este tiempo
    se permite al aura permanecer fuerte y completa.”

    "Nacimiento Lotus (Lotus Birth): Se nombra así por Clair Lotus Day, la primera mujer que documenta el nacimiento de su primer hijo siguiendo este ritual, en 1974 en California. Antes solamente se había descrito el nacimiento sin cortar el cordón en los chimpancés. Clair Lotus Day ha sido la primera defensora de este ritual, junto con Janine Parvati Backer (ambas en EEUU), la matrona Shivam Rachana y la Dra. Sarah Buckley (ambas en Australia).”

    “Las experiencias de nacimiento lotus, demuestran que a pesar de que, en verano y con el calor, el olor se intensifica después del tercer día, dicho olor no es desagradable. La placenta no tiene un mal olor. Cada placenta tiene su olor, como cada bebé: este olor nos fascina...cada madre se emborracha con el olor de su cría al igual que lo hace con el de la placenta. Se comprueba también que la placenta no se descompone mientras está unida al bebé por el cordón y no hay necesidad de cuidarla con sal marina, aceites o especias.”

    *Muchas son las culturas en las que el tratamiento de la placenta conlleva marcados rituales, como se explica en este texto extraído del libro: “Maternidad y Parto: nuestras ancestras y nosotras”: “En las sociedad malaya por ejemplo (Valenzuela 2009) se considera que la placenta y el recién nacido son lo mismo, por lo que es tratada con absoluta reverencia.” https://www.elpartoesnuestro.es/blog/2014/12/01/la-placenta-esa-gran-desconocida-parte-i




    "¡El embrión es todo!" 
    Dr. Jaap van der Wal

    En realidad el cuerpo del ser humano prenatal y perinatal consta de 2 partes, cuerpo central y placenta y que por tanto pertenecen a la identidad de la misma persona. Vienen del mismo cigoto originarias de la “masa interna” y del “trofoblasto epidérmico”y tienen funciones polares y complementarias. Para comprender mejor que la placenta es el cuerpo periférico y que lo que comunmente llamamos “embrión” o “feto” es sólo el cuerpo central, también puede ayudar ver las pocas imágenes que hay en la red de los escasos nacimientos de bebés dentro de su propia placenta, llamados nacimientos velados.

    Contemplar la belleza de la unidad real del bebé asombra, maravilla, conmueve, inunda de respeto y amor... Entonces la placenta ya no tiene forma de pastel, ni galleta ni pizza ni nada que nos pueda parecer comida..... porque se evidencia que la placenta y el cuerpo central del bebé son una misma Vida... un nuevo ser humano que despierta nuestro instinto y deber de protegerlo, cuidarlo y darle la bienvenida amorosa que se merece.

    “Nacer con velo, enmantillado, con zurrón,
    con el manto de la virgen, con toquilla…

    que desde siempre ha estado rodeado de múltiples leyendas.”

    "Por muchas razones, incluyendo el intervencionismo de los partos medicalizados, es poco probable que este tipo de parto sucedan (aprox 1 en 80.000) y desde hace mucho mucho tiempo su ocurrencia, precisamente por lo singular, ha sido celebrada como una señal de buen auspicio para el bebé, otrora se creía que los niños 'nacidos en camisa' crecerían para ser visionarios y hasta jueces morales de la población en la que crecían. Y siempre contarian con una suerte extraordinaria. La palabra en Alemán para este tipo de nacimientos así lo sugiere "Glückshaube" 'gorro de la suerte'."

    Cuando nace un bebé sin haber todavía rasgado-el-velo de manera natural... se procede automáticamente a abrirlo violentamente desde fuera con un objeto cortante. Pero ante la luz de la información de este mismo artículo...¡Aaagghhh!. ¿No os duele mirar este otro video?  Si quizás se esperara un rato... respetando el tiempo del bebé... lograría poderlo rasgar desde dentro él solito... y acabar el proceso de nacimiento en paz...





    “En verdad, la placenta no pertenece a la madre.
    Pertenece al bebé.
    Y cada vez que una madre come la placenta,
    está consumiendo la fuerza vital de su bebé.”
    Jeanice Barcelo

    “The media are responsible for promoting the idea that it is good for women to eat their placenta. When you realize that the media are owned by Luciferian Jews who are involved in human sacrifice and the ingestion of human blood and body parts, you begin to realize and clearly see that they are attempting to mainstream satanism.
    It is not normal for humans to consume human organs and human blood any more than it's normal for them to consume the flesh of animals. For most humans, it would seem repugnant to go chasing a wild animal, wrestle it to the ground, and dig into its flesh with our bare hands and teeth and eat the organs and blood raw. This is the mark of a true carnivore, which humans are not, and they are not naturally cannibals either. Cannibalism is learned and taught through the satanic-controlled media. And in truth, the placenta does not belong to the mother. It belongs to the baby. And every time a mother eats the placenta, she is consuming her baby's life force -- another highly satanic act.”

    “Dándole vueltas a este asunto me he dado cuenta de que
    en realidad yo no debería esgrimir argumentos en contra de la placentofagia,
    que es lo que me piden las amables gestantes,
    sino que alguien debería aportarme sólidas pruebas científicas a favor.”

    “Comerse la placenta encapsulada, guisada con patatas o,
    mucho peor, cruda, es una muy mala idea.
    Si no me creen, les invito a que pongan en la base de datos

    Y para ir cerrando vuelvo a recordar una noticia que ya puse en otra ocasión hace unos meses en relación con el escándalo de Planned Parenthood (ver el final de ¿Qué es Planned Parenthood? El gran negocio del aborto) donde El Parto es Nuestro denunciaba la exposición llamada “de arte” organizada en 2011 por el hospital público la Marina Alta de Denia, Valencia, titulada “Para comerte mejor”,de Rosalía Banet donde se mostraban figuritas de plastilina con monstruosos personajes celebrando una fiesta de cumpleaños practicando el canibalismo tan alegremente comiéndose a bebés, mujeres-pastel, pasteles de ojos, sesos de bebés, y demás “manjares”...


    Esta exposición está constituida por figuras en plastilina en la que se muestra escenas degradantes y ofensivas como un perro precipitándose sobre una mujer recién operada, penes eyaculando de gusto tras comer tetas, mujeres comiendo sesos de bebés y declarando fetos como su plato favorito…Consideramos grave que tanto las empresas gestoras, como la institución encargada de supervisar su gestión que es la Consejería de Sanidad de la Comunidad Valenciana, permitan tal despliegue de retorcimiento mental y desprecio por los profesionales y los usuarios del hospital, y que además, se permitan despedir a los profesionales que muestran su desacuerdo. Un hospital, especialmente uno que se encuentra dentro del Sistema Nacional de Salud (SNS), tiene también una misión como centro: la promoción de la salud. No sólo como centro de atención, sino también como centro de difusión de temas de salud pública a la población de referencia.”

    “This is a note for all parents. Please be aware that, without proper awareness and precautions, your baby's life force can become a marketable commodity. Hospitals are selling infant cord blood to the highest bidder, and parents who allow hospitals to keep their baby's placenta could be endangering the spiritual and psychic well being of their child.
    It is important to understand that the clamping and cutting of a baby's umbilical cord immediately after birth (and especially before the cord has stopped pulsing) will enable the hospital to gather up the baby's cord blood and sell it for profit.”

    La placentofagia (comerse la placenta cruda, en caldito, liquada, a la plancha, al horno... o encapsulada...) es una incoherencia si se está en un camino de crianza respetuosa y con apego ya que el mismo acto es en sí mismo un shock para el bebé... ¿Qué improntas está recibiendo la indefensa criatura en el crucial momento de su nacimiento? ¿qué calidad va a tener ese vínculo si el bebé está experimentando cómo su propia madre, literalmente, se está comiendo una parte de sí mismo?

    Comerse placentas humanas por sistema a modo de ritual satánico no tiene nada de “Placenta Party” o “Spiritcooking” (cocina del espíritu); más bien es stupidcooking; el espíritu de cada persona es indestructible. Ésta puede ser extremadamente agredida, traumatizada, humillada... pero en realidad su espíritu... siempre está cuidado y protegido por Dios.

    Comerte la placenta de una inocente criatura no sólo no te da energía sino que te la quita, ya que estás agrediendo a otros... y también te estás en realidad agrediendo a ti.

    BOOK REPORT for Monstress, Volume 1: Awakening by Marjorie Liu, illustrated by Sana Takeda

    Cover Story: Montell Jordan
    BFF Charm: Hell No
    Swoonworthy Scale: 0.5
    Talky Talk: Morse Code
    Arty Art: Decopunk Manga with a Splash of Carnage
    Bonus Factors: Who Run the World?, Talking Cats
    Anti-Bonus Factor: Cliffhanger
    Relationship Status: Coffee Date

    Cover Story: Montell Jordan

    Two emoji praise hands up for this absolutely stunning cover. I could probably spend hours getting lost in all the intricate details, but the bright white font and the glow outlining the main character help provide depth to the picture while highlighting what’s important, so my eyes know exactly where to look first without feeling overwhelmed.

    The Deal:

    Maika Halfwolf is a 17-year-old Arcanic, a race of human-god hybrids, who was taken into slavery when the Arcanics and the humans were at war. In the war, humans allied themselves with the Cumaea, an order of human women with psychic abilities thought of as witches by the Arcanics. Maika risks her newfound freedom to infiltrate a Cumaean stronghold and seek answers about her past, only to find herself on the run with more questions than answers, two furry companions in tow (an Arcanic fox-child and a sarcastic, poetry-quoting cat), and an ancient, mysterious, dark power that both she and those hunting her seek to control before it’s too late.

    BFF Charm: Hell No

    And the reason why can be summed up with the following four words:

    She means that quite literally, so that’s gonna be a hard pass from me on the friendship. You do you, though, girl!

    Swoonworthy Scale: 0.5

    There’s one teeny tiny moment of swoon between two characters that might be explored more in future volumes, but Maika’s a little too preoccupied with her demonic urges to think about her sexual ones.

    Talky Talk: Morse Code

    The setting of Monstress is an alternate-universe Asia called The Known World. There’s an interesting dichotomy in how the worldbuilding unfolds. Throughout the story, we get little hints and bits of information here and there (dots), and at the end of each chapter or so we get a page-long explanation of an aspect of The Known World’s history (dashes). (See what I did there?) Alternating between the two helps keep the longer sections from feeling like info-dumps — that, and the fact that they’re presented as lectures by a cat named Professor Tam Tam.

    Arty Art: Decopunk Manga with a Splash of Carnage

    The art in this book is nothing short of phenomenal (see: Cover Story). There’s an incredible attention to detail in everything from characters’ facial expressions to the complex designs on buildings in the background. The most obvious style influences are Art Deco, steampunk, and manga, but all the blood and gore makes me wonder if artist Sana Takeda is a Game of Thrones fan.

    Thankfully, people casually getting impaled and set on fire didn’t bother the 2017 Hugo and Eisner Award committees! Monstress is nominated for two Hugos (awards in sci-fi and fantasy): Best Graphic Story and Best Professional Artist, as well as three Eisners (awards in comics): Best Publication for Teens, Best Painter/Multimedia Artist (interior art), and Best Cover Artist (for multiple covers).

    Bonus Factor: Who Run the World?

    Most of the characters in Monstress are women, which gives the author room to explore Big Topics like race (some Arcanics can “pass” as human), slavery, war, and survival with nary a “well, actually…” in sight. Heck yeah, matriarchal society!

    Bonus Factor: Talking Cats

    We love talking cats here at FYA. In Monstress, cats are the oldest race in The Known World. They’re poets, professors, and warriors, and the main feline in this story, Master Ren, is a sidekick with no shortage of snark.

    Monstress is published by Image Comics, which also publishes the Saga series, and keen Saga fans may notice a subtle nod to our beloved Lying Cat within Monstress’s pages.

    Anti-Bonus Factor: Cliffhanger

    Why, gods, why??? I mean, it is the first volume (issues #1-6) of a new comic series, so it’s somewhat to be expected. Thankfully, we don’t have to wait much longer for Monstress, Volume 2: The Blood, which collects issues #7-12 and hits shelves this July. And if you prefer to read single issues instead of waiting for the trade paperback release, you probably already know what happens after that ominous “to be continued…”

    Casting Call:

    Janel Parrish as Maika

    Aubrey Anderson-Emmons as Kippa

    Nick Bakay as the voice of Master Ren

    Obvi, the main characters should be played by POC, but when I think “snarky, talking cat” I can’t help but think of Salem.

    Relationship Status: Coffee Date

    You can tell a lot about someone from their coffee order. I’m the type who goes for caffeinated sugary milk, while you, book, ordered your coffee black, like your soul. I wasn’t sure we’d get along (although one look at your cover and I knew you definitely had the goods — and hey, thanks for not pressuring me into ordering my steak coffee prepared the way you like it!), but our low-key coffee date was the perfect opportunity to dive into those deep, philosophical conversations about our pasts, our fears, our hopes, and our dreams. Despite our hours together, I feel like there’s still so much more to learn about you, book, and I’m already fantasizing about our second date.

    FTC Full Disclosure: I bought this book because I’m a grown-ass woman and I do what I want. I received no gold Galleons, silver Sickles, bronze Knuts, or muggle money for this review. Monstress, Volume 1: Awakening is available now.


              [PROFILE + FAKTA] Go Soo / Ko Soo   
    Assalamu'alaikum, Ohayou, Annyenong Haseo Sahabat Monchan World's?!

    I'm back... dengan membawa info lengkap dari salah satu aktor tampan negeri gingseng, Go Soo oppa. Meskipun sudah tak lajang & muda lagi tapi kualitas akting oppa tetap T.O.P B.G.T dech.

    Go Soo oppa lahir di Choong Nam Noon San , Korea Selatan dan memiliki seorang saudara laki-laki . Ia pernah kuliah di Sang Myung University, di mana ia belajar tentang akting.


    Setelah lulus SMA tapi sebelum melanjutkan ke universitas, Go Soo oppa melakukan perjalanan ke Seoul untuk mencari peruntungan. Oppa pertama kali terlihat dalam sebuah iklan TV softdrink dimana dia menunggu pacarnya di jam malam dan pada tahun 1998, muncul kembali sebagai figuran dalam sebuah video musik band Position "Last Promise". Dia membuat langkah pertamanya ke layar kaca pada tahun 1999, di mana penampilannya yang tampan serta senyum manisnya mengingatkan penonton akan sosok Cho Hyeon Jae dan Ji Sung . Dia juga menarik pujian para kritikus, ketika ia muncul dalam serial drama Piano pada tahun 2001, satu review menggambarkannya sebagai "aktor dengan presisi". Piano adalah drama serial pertama yang diproduksi oleh SBS, di mana ia diminta untuk menandatangani kontrak. Setelah itu , semua dramanya diproduksi oleh SBS.

    Go oppa pun sukses dengan film pertamanya pada tahun 2004 sebagai petugas kejahatan narkoba di Some, film pertama di mana dia melakukan adegan laganya sendiri. Pada tahun 2005, ia kembali membintangi serial TV Green Rose, dimana ia berperan sebagai seorang pria sederhana yang jatuh cinta dengan seorang wanita kaya dan dituduh melakukan kejahatan yang tidak dilakukannya. Green Rose syuting di tempat yaitu Cina dan Korea Selatan.

    Pada tahun 2005, Go untuk pertama kalinya dianugerahi New Star Award di Daejong Festival ke-42. Setelah memainkan peran sederhana dalam teledrama, oppa tampil topless dalam sebuah iklan ponsel TV.

    Pada tahun 2009, Go Soo oppa membintangi film misteri White Night, berdasarkan novel Jepang Byakuyakō oleh Keigo Higashino. Go mengatakan "dia benar-benar terserap oleh alur cerita yang menarik".

    Untuk comeback televisinya, Go berperan dalam melodrama Will It Snow For Christmas?, sebuah kisah masa kecil yang menghidupkan kembali cinta yang ditulis oleh penulis terkenal TV Lee Kyung Hee. Dia menggambarkan karakternya sebagai "pria yang terluka oleh cinta dan mencoba untuk mengatasi rasa sakitnya itu."

              Otázka - Psychické obtěžování ze strany sousedů (Domácnost a bydlení)   
    orka: Dobrý den,mám na vás milé lidičky a dobrý rádcové prozbu. Můj dedeček je v invalidním důchodu bydlí už nějakou dobu sám navíc má zdravotní problémy s kyčlema a má také nemocné ledviny a problémy s páteři dědovi je 61 let. Cokoliv je třeba udělat na zahradě jako je např. sekání trávy, štípání dřeva, takové těžší práce, tak tatka přijde s práce když má čas a udělá dědovi co potřebuje. (diskuze na internetové stránce)
              Skomentuj Opieka naprzemienna po rozwodzie. Czy jest dobra dla Twojego dziecka i dla Ciebie?, którego autorem jest steve   
    Boże, ten artykuł powiela jakieś kocopoły z zeszłego wieku strasząc ludzi opieką naprzemienną. Jak gdyby rodzice mieszkając razem z dzieckiem zawsze byli w jego sprawach w 100% zgodni. Nie, nie są często, tak więc dogadują się będąc w związku. A tu nagle okazuje się, że po rozstaniu muszą być w 100 % zgodni. Nie, nie muszą, ale powinni umieć się dogadać. Bo inaczej armagedon. Stwierdzenie 'dla zdrowia psychicznego dziecka lepszym rozwiązaniem jest ustanowienie jednego z rodziców pełnoprawnym opiekunem, wówczas drugi rodzic jest rodzicem tzw. dochodzącym.' jest kuriozalne i już pominę fakt, że niezgodne z krio po noweli z 2015. Jest to po prostu gloryfikacja alienacji rodzicielskiej. Dla dziecka jest ważna stałość i powtarzalność, jeżeli dziecko wie, że te dwa tygodnie spędza u jednego rodzica, a kolejne u drugiego, a w każdym z tych miejsc ma swój pokój, zabawki, przedmioty, ale też obowiązki to czuje się pewnie. Jeżeli jeden z rodziców jest rodzicem dochodzacym to siła rzeczy nie zajmuje się wychowaniem i nie spada na niego codzienny trud opieki nad dzieckiem. Ten który zajmuje się dzieckiem z kolei robi z siebie często cierpietnika. Opieka naprzemienna nie jest łatwa, ale jest jak najbardziej do ogarnięcia tak by dziecko czuło się szczęśliwe, zaopiekowane i kochane. Sam w takim reżimie wychowuje 2 dzieci, jedno moje, drugie partnerki, oba co dwa tygodnie zmieniają dom, i kazdy jest dla nich ich domem rodzinnym w którym czują się pewnie i traktują jako swój.

              Small Natural Rough Amethyst and Copper Electroformed Pendant Necklace Minimalist Spiritual Metaphysical - Toniraecreations by ToniRaeCreations   

    48.00 USD

    A lovely Purple Amethyst Crystal Point was electroformed for many hours in thick copper and then given an antiqued patina before being completely sealed in Renaissance Wax Polish.
    Wear it alone or layer it with other necklaces. The one I am wearing in the picture is on a 36" antiqued copper chain (pick your length at checkout).
    This is "one of a kind" so you will get this exact necklace.

    Amethyst is a meditative and calming stone which works in the emotional, spiritual, and physical planes to promote calm, balance, and peace. It is also used to eliminate impatience.
    Amethyst is used as beneficial when dealing with legal problems and money issues, which can lead to prosperity and abundance, though it is not the best known prosperity stone.
    In the psychic and spiritual realms, amethyst is an excellent all-purpose stone that can increase spirituality and enhance intuition and psychic powers of all kinds. It does this by making a clear connection between the earth plane and other planes and worlds. Amethyst is also excellent for meditation and lucid dreaming. It is used to open one's channels to telepathy, past life regression, clairaudience, clairvoyance, and communication with angels. Amethyst also protects against psychic attacks, especially during spiritual work.
    Amethyst is not only a psychic protection stone, but is also used to protect one from thieves, and to protects travelers. 

    Copper has long been used as a healing metal, especially for arthritis and rheumatism. Copper has been used with blood and metabolism disorders. Copper acts as a conductor when worn on the body. It helps the healing effect of any stone when both touch the body.

    Please convo me with any question. Necklace will be gift wrapped in a kraft box and organza bag, ready for gift giving or for you!

    It's pretty predictable but I find her series great fun. The adventure is good and the romance interesting.

    Olivia Whirlwind is a psychic who often works with the cops to help solve crimes. Now she's dealing with a killer who is using some Native American magic to distract from her intentions. Her other distraction is the handsome FBI agent who is also part Native American and is sceptical about all that sort of thing.

    The two of them spark well, there are some great fun scenes in this story. The use of American Indian magic is also interesting and unusual.

    Set in the near future when people are divided into three, Psy (or psychics), Were and human. Psy decided long ago that emotions were dangerous and any sign of emotion is ruthlessly suppressed and the methods of dealing with it are scary.

    In this world Sascha Duncan lives in terror of being found out as having feelings but fears the rehabilitation, it would wipe her our.

    Into her world comes Lucas Hunter, a changeling hunting a changeling killer, who is possibly a Psy. The two of them are attracted but can they do anything about it without her being destroyed.

    I liked the story. I liked the characters and I really would like to read more in this world.

    review:
    Honestly this doesn't read much like SF. Apart from the fluff bunny it really didn't come across as all that SFnal.

    Slade Attridge is the new chief of police on Rainshadow Island. His career investigating paranormal events for the government is over. His last case had his psychic abilities go funny on him and now he's unsure how much longer they're going to last. Charlotte Enright has taken over her aunt's antique shop, Looking Glass Antiques on the island. Trying to sort out the variety of antiques her aunt has left her with. They were attracted to each other when they were younger and now the attraction is probably stronger, after all, now they're adults.

    It's an interesting read, more about the couple than about the psionics and exploring more of the world they're living in. Interesting but there wes something that just didn't gel for me.

    The Path of Razors, Vampire Babylon, Book Five


    London couldn’t be further from L. A., but stuntwoman-turned-vampire hunter Dawn Madison knows that her job hasn’t changed—find the local vampire Underground and wipe it out. She and her team have located the vamp’s lair at a private girls’ school and now they have the undead on the run.

    But the vicious pack is starting to realize that its greatest threat may be from within its own ranks.

    As unrest rocks the Underground, Dawn begins to fall prey to her own dark desires. Never the same since her one moment as a vampire, she finds her psychic powers—and urge to hunt—growing.

    Both above ground and below, the line between good and evil is blurring, leading to a confrontation between Dawn who fears her humanity is slipping away—and a beautiful but deadly creature who basks in the suffering of her own kind…

    Chris Marie Green also writes as Crystal Green. THE PATH OF RAZORS is the second in the London Underground trilogy portion of the Vampire Babylon series, which uses trilogy arcs to tell the adventures of Dawn Madison and the team.

    NIGHT RISING, Vampire Babylon, Book One, by Chris Marie Green

    Welcome to Hollywood—after dark…
    Stuntwoman Dawn Madison is a girl with attitude—and a lot of issues, mostly about living up to the legacy of her mother, a world famous movie star whose untimely death left Dawn to be raised by her dad Frank, nobody’s notion of single-father-of-the-year. Now that she’s grown up, she and Frank aren’t on the best of terms, to say the least.

    Still, he is her dad, and when he vanishes while investigating the bizarre sighting—caught on film—of a supposedly long-dead child star, she comes home to Tinseltown to join the search for him. Working with his colleagues—a psychic short in stature but big in dreams, a beautiful Latina techno-geek, and the P. I. firm’s never-seen boss—she discovers an erotic and bloody underground society made up of creatures she thought existed only on screen.

    They are devious. They are deadly. And some of them are dangerously attractive…

    - Amanda at the Eternal Night Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Fiction Web Site

    “Night Rising – Vampire Babylon is the first book in a new trilogy set in the exciting world of paranormal Hollywood written by author Chris Marie Green. Described as a noir-mystery-fantasy series, it is dark, erotic and compelling reading.”
    - Amanda at Lovesvampires.com
    Chris Marie Green does a wonderful job of bringing this gritty, dark novel to life…. If this is the first installment of the VAMPIRE BABYLON series, I can’t wait to see where [the author] takes the rest of the books.
    -Chere, Best Reviews/Paranormal Romance


    Green's storytelling prowess is hitting on all cylinders in Night Rising: a brilliantly developed plotline; compelling, realistically drawn characters; and enough ghoulish antagonists, horrific murders and erotic encounters to satisfy fans of all genres. Regardless of categorization, Green's latest is pure, unadulterated storytelling gold. Highly recommended.

Now, as the deadly Psy Council tightens its grip, a rebel Psy scientist finds herself at the mercy of a changeling who has sworn vengeance against her kind...

    Separated from her son and forced to create a neural implant that will mean the effective enslavement of her psychically gifted race, Ashaya Aleine is the perfect Psy--cool, calm, emotionless...at least on the surface.

    DarkRiver sniper Dorian Christensen lost his sister to a Psy killer. Though he lacks the changeling ability to shift into animal form, his leopard lives within. And that leopard's rage at the brutal loss is a clawing darkness that hungers for vengeance. Falling for a Psy has never been on Dorian's agenda. But charged with protecting Ashaya and her son, he discovers that passion has a way of changing the rules...

              Mixed Metal Sterling Silver and Brass Fly Vintage Owl Pendant with Blue Labradorite Hand Stamped Necklace Jewelry by TheRedPoppyShop   

    129.00 USD

    I came across these gorgeous little vintage brass owl stampings and had to have them! The impetus to set them like this came from the blue flashing labradorite cabochon and new letter stamps I recently purchased. I thought these elements belonged together. Do you agree?

    Pendant measures 2 1/8" from the top of the bail to the bottom of the setting and is about 3/4" across at its widest point. Comes on your choice of an 18 or 20 inch sterling chain. I can shorten further upon request.

    Wearing or carrying Labradorite allows one's innate magical powers to surface. It enhances the mental and intuitive abilities of clairvoyance, telepathy, prophecy and coincidence control, and assists in communication with higher guides and spirits in accessing Akashic records, psychic readings and past-life recall. It provides an ease in moving between the worlds, and permits a safe and grounded return to the present.

              Spain court orders exhumation of Dali's remains in paternity claim   
    MADRID, SPAIN, Laurence Boutreux- A Spanish court has ordered that the remains of Salvador Dali be exhumed after a woman who claims to be the daughter of the world-famous artist filed a paternity claim. If the woman, identified as Pilar Abel and reportedly a psychic, is confirmed as the only child of Dali, she could be entitled to part of the huge fortune and heritage of one of the most celebrated and prolific painters of the 20th century.
    Spain court orders exhumation of Dali's remains in paternity claim
    The Madrid court said Monday the exhumation aimed "to get samples of his remains to determine whether he is the biological father of a woman from Girona (in northeastern Spain) who filed a claim to be recognised as the daughter of the artist."
    "The DNA study of the painter's corpse is necessary due to the lack of other biological or personal remains with which to perform the comparative study," it added.
    The Dali Foundation which manages the artist's estate said in a statement it would lodge an appeal against the exhumation "in the coming days," without giving further details.
    - Psychic -
    Dali is buried in his eponymous museum in Figueras, a city in the northeastern region of Catalonia where he died in January 1989 of heart failure after a life marked by the genius of his work and his own eccentricities and extravagances.
    According to media reports Abel is 61 and a psychic.
    She says her mother had an affair with Dali when she worked as a nanny for another family that vacationed in Port Lligat, a tiny fishing hamlet near Cadaques on the coast where the painter lived and worked for years with his muse Gala.
    "My grandmother told me: 'I know that you're not my son's daughter, I know that your father is a great painter and she told me his name, Dali," Abel told Catalonia's TV3 television channel in 2015, adding her mother later admitted this was true.
    She said she had already done DNA tests with a mask that belonged to Dali, but that she did not have the results.
    Her lawyer Enrique Blanquez told AFP that the affair was "known in the village, there are people who have testified before a notary."
    He said one person "worked for Dali and Dali paid her to investigate what she did and where the plaintiff's mother went."
    - Relationship with Gala -
    Born on May 11, 1904 in Figueras to a bourgeois family -- his father was a legal clerk -- Dali developed an interest in painting from an early age.
    In 1922 he began studying at the Fine Arts Academy in Madrid, where, despite being expelled twice, he developed his first avant-garde artistic ideas in association with poet Federico Garcia Lorca and the filmmaker Luis Bunuel.
    Soon he left for Paris to join the surrealist movement, giving the school his own personal twist and rocketing to fame with works such as "The Great Masturbator."
    Dali also made forays into the world of surrealist filmmaking.
    Returning to Catalonia after 12 years, he invited French poet Paul Eluard and his Russian wife Elena Ivanovna Diakonova to Cadaques.
    It was love at first sight between Dali and the woman to whom he gave the pet name Gala.
    She became his muse and remained at his side for the rest of her life.
    The couple never had children and there have been testimonies that the artist was confused about his sexuality and that he was more of a voyeur than a performer where sex was concerned.
    But despite the reportedly unusual relationship, Gala was still his soulmate.
    When she died in 1982, he was shattered, on both a human and artistic level.
    Dali himself died in 1989 in a Figueras clinic.

              Wiosenny detoks umysłu – prosty plan na weekend   

    Jakiś czas temu próbowałam opublikować post o tym, jak żyć intensywnie i nie zwariować. Ci, którzy śledzą mój funpage na FB być może pamiętają, że nie udało mi się przez problemy techniczne. Pisałam, pisałam a gdy już byłam przy końcu, mój tekst zniknął z nieznanej mi przyczyny. Sytuacja ta wywołała ciąg ważnych dla mnie przemyśleń i wniosków. W pierwszym momencie się poddałam, co nie jest dla mnie typową reakcją. Potem próbowałam odzyskać kopię zapasową, ale się nie udało. Wkurzyłam się. Przez tydzień nie opublikowałam nic, bo straciłam jakiekolwiek chęci do pisania. Nagle się okazało, że wcale nie panuję tak dobrze nad swoim intensywnym życiem jak myślałam, a tak mała pierdoła odsłoniła całą frustrację, zmęczenie i złość. Zrobiłam sobie przerwę i nie zmuszałam się do niczego. Potem przyszła majówka, w trakcie której poczułam jak bardzo potrzebowałam odpoczynku, ale nie tego fizycznego. Zatęskniłam za psychicznym luzem i stąd wziął się pomysł na wiosenny detoks umysłu. Najważniejsze czego się nauczyłam dzięki całej tej sytuacji, to że nie da się żyć intensywnie pod każdym względem i „nie zwariować”. Zniknięcie tekstu było dobrym znakiem, bo przypomniało mi o tym, że nie jest możliwe, aby żyć ciągle na pełnych obrotach, być aktywnym w każdej dziedzinie, nie […]

              An Inside Look at the Horsemen of Our Apocalypse   
    Dick Russell's new book profiles the "dark lords of the energy underworld."

    The prolific author Dick Russell is perhaps best known as co-author of four books by wrestler/governor/TV star Jesse Ventura. But he has also written a family memoir about his schizophrenic son, a book about African-American leaders, an investigation of the JFK assassination, and two books about large fish.

    His latest is Horsemen of the Apocalypse: The Men Who Are Destroying Life on Earth—And What It Means for Our Children. With a foreword by environmentalist Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the book takes a close look at the captains of carbon and the damage they are doing to the planet. In profiling the men he calls the "dark lords of the energy underworld,” Russell puts a human face on climate change.

    I caught up with Russell by phone at his home in California. The conversation has been edited for length and clarity.

    Jefferson Morley: You’ve always had an environmental thread running through your books, including my favorite, Striper Wars. Is Horsemen of the Apocalypse related to Striper Wars?

    Dick Russell: Striper Wars details a huge citizen effort, mostly led by fisherman, to save a fish, the great Atlantic striped bass. This fish, which goes all the way back to helping the pilgrims survive, was in danger of disappearing through overfishing and poaching. I was part of, and then chronicled, a successful effort to turn this around. It was a grassroots mobilization, and we were up against very powerful entrenched commercial interests that did not want to give up taking as many striped bass as they wanted.

    In that sense, there is a parallel: the fossil fuel titans want to keep just keep pumping carbon emissions into the atmosphere. And there is a tremendous need now for citizens to march and rise up and to look for people at the local level to push for change.

    JM: Your book gives a personal face to climate change, like an 'America’s Most Wanted' poster. Is that your goal?

    DR: Yes it is, actually. When I set out to do the book, I did not anticipate it would turn out to be prophetic. So many of these guys that I profiled are now running the country, from [Rex] Tillerson, to the Koch brothers, to Harold Hamm’s protégé, Scott Pruitt, running the EPA. The list goes on and on.

    I felt like there is such hypocrisy among these people; the Koch brothers decrying subsidies for renewable energy, while they get millions and millions in subsidies for what they are doing. It’s kind of mind-boggling.

    I did some traveling for the book. I went to Texas to Rex Tillerson’s hometown. I went to Oklahoma and spent some time interviewing people about Harold Hamm. Not too many people knew of him and he was suddenly Trump’s energy adviser. He was offered the job of  Secretary of Energy, which he didn’t want it, so Trump gave it to Rick Perry. Here’s this Oklahoma billionaire who’s not only denying climate change through his fracking practices, but also the disposal of the wastewater was causing this huge problem, making Oklahoma the earthquake capital of the country.

    I felt like these guys deserved to have their faces put on a wanted poster.

    JM: David and Charles Koch are cultured men with refined tastes in music and the arts. They have a building named after them at Lincoln Center in New York. Should cultural organizations take their money?

    DR: [Laughs] That’s a good question. It would be great if some of these cultural organizations could actually say no. In fact, the Nature Conservancy in Kansas did that—the Koch brothers had been funding some of their efforts for up to $1million a year. They just said, No, we’re not going to take it anymore because of your policies. I’d love to see more of that.

    JM: I love the story about Rex Tillerson objecting to fracking activities next to his Texas ranch. It raises the question that recurs throughout the book: What is the psychic mechanism that enables such people to be such hypocrites? Is it just greed, or is it more complicated?

    DR: It’s probably more complicated, but I think money is at the heart of it: the bottom line, profits. Somebody like Tillerson, his company has become the biggest natural gas provider in the United States—and he objected to having this fracking tower adjacent to his own land because it was an eyesore.

    I went to Tillerson's ranch in Bartonville [Texas]. I pulled up in front of his ranch, a big, big horse ranch. In front of the gate to his ranch, there was this big sculpted metal globe. It looked like someone took a carving knife to it and the whole upper part of the globe, along these uneven serrated edges, opened up into this gaping void, and I thought, Wow, that is symbolic. Here is Tillerson’s globe and it’s a world whose apex has been systematically shredded. It was quite a metaphor.

    JM: One of the most interesting and hopeful parts of Horsemen of the Apocalypse are the portraits of the children of the fossil fuel barons. What are they doing about the legacy of their parents and grandparents?

    DR: Some of them are really trying to make a difference. Chris Lindstrom, who is the late John D. Rockefeller’s grandson, is very devoted to alternative energy… and so is the whole Rockefeller family. Their money came from Standard Oil, which then became Exxon, so they still have some impact as shareholders. They have been pushing for resolutions to force Exxon to address climate change. They’re very active.

    I interviewed Katherine Lorenz—her grandfather, George Mitchell, he was a pioneer in fracking, or hydraulic fracturing, about 30 years ago. She took over the family foundation and has really been pushing, not just to reduce emissions fast, but also to go to wind energy. Texas is now the biggest wind energy producer in the country. That’s in part due to what her foundation has raised awareness about.

    JM: Was there anything you discovered while doing the book? Anything that surprised you?

    DR: I already knew a lot about climate change. I was writing about it as far back as 1989, but I was still surprised by the blatant or wanton disregard so many of these moguls have for the future. It was staggering to me.

    I grew up in Kansas City and I went to the University of Kansas. So I went back there to examine what the Koch brothers have done. I had no idea that Kansas, because it has a lot of wind, had been one of the pioneering states in implementing clean power. The Koch brothers came in, for reasons that are hard to fathom, and got rid of all these state legislators who were advocates of clean power and put in these right-wing Republicans. They basically stopped further advances with wind energy. Why? It’s not a threat to them that I can see. They’re still making their millions all over the world. But wind energy is starting to compete a little bit and they wanted it out of the way.

    DEVILS MARKER
    Sons of Sanctuary MC, Austin, Texas Book 4
    by Victoria Danann
    Genre: MC Contemporary Romance (hot heat level)

    • The Waco, Texas Marauders MC is on the verge of war.
    • New arrivals, Stars and Bars MC, are engaged in activities too nefarious for even the notorious Marauders.
    • New SSMC member, Win Garrett, is planted inside to get information and fill a marker owed by the club.
    New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Victoria Danann, adds a bit of grit and reality to the runaway hit series Sons of Sanctuary. Devils Marker is a tale of romance and suspense loosely based on actual events.

    CAN BE READ AS A STAND ALONE.

    A biker who walked away from a SoCal outlaw club came to the SSMC seeking a quiet life that might become a long life. Little did he know he was jumping out of the frying pan into the fire when the club president asked him to fill a marker owed to a Texas Ranger.

    Win Garrett chose the fast track option to respect and a full patch with the club, but things changed when the daughter of the Marauders' prez caught his eye. Now all he wants is to get out alive with the little blonde bombshell who has his heart clenched in a vice grip with passion pink fingernails.

    "Suspense, loyalty, brotherhood, compassion, humor and romance...Sons of Sanctuary has something for everyone."



    “I could be marked. Clubs have a way of figurin’ things out.”

    “That’s why it’s gotta be up to you. Full patch comes with full backing. Of course.” Win looked out the window, seemingly working through all the pros and cons. “You left your old club in good standing. Right?”

    “Yeah.”

    “So they’d speak for you if asked.”

    “I suppose. The leadership had become kind of… unpredictable.”

    “That happens. If you were asked, just explain it like that.”

    “You sound like you think I’m sayin’ yes.”

    “Got a feelin’ you’re leanin’ that way. Am I wrong?”

    Win shook his head. “No. You’re not wrong. Kinda wish you were. I was just gettin’ the accounts set up and…”

    “When you get back you’ll have that plus a lot more. You do this for us, you got our trust with our backs and our money.” Brant took a sip of coffee and then said, “But not our women.”

    Realizing that his anxiety and indecision was creating tension in the room, Win consciously decided to lighten the mood. He grinned. “Your wife is…”

    Brant said, “Stop right there, prospect. You got no call to say a word about the mother of my sons. No matter how beautiful and smart and polished and rich she is.” Brant grinned, but in a way that was more menacing than teasing. “You need some time to think about it?”

    Win shook his head. “Thinkin’ about it’s not gonna change a thing. So no point. I guess I’m in. But for the record, I’d like to have it known that I’m not into reckless or suicidal. Got your word that my loyalty won’t be questioned? I mean if I survive?”

    “I got a strong feelin’ you’re gonna be back as a full patch member. If I didn’t believe that, I wouldn’t have even brought this up. But I’ve been doin’ this long enough to say that when my gut speaks, I listen up.”

    Win gave a nod that was both slight and unconvincing, more an acknowledgement than an agreement. “And I have your word that my loyalty won’t be questioned again. Ever.”

    Brant stilled and looked the younger man squarely in the face so that he could absorb the seriousness and sincerity of the answer. “Yes. You do. I’m gonna call the Ranger right now, with you sittin’ there. So stay put.” Brant punctuated that order by pointing to the chair underneath Win’s firmly muscled behind.

    “Call me back,” Brant said into the phone. “While we’re waitin’, why don’t you tell me if there’s somethin’ I need to look after regardin’ the accounts you’ve been messin’ with.”

    Win took exception to the term ‘messin’ with’, but chose not to challenge the club president about his word choice. He opened his mouth to reply, but Brant’s phone rang. Brant looked at the face of the phone and accepted the call.

    “He’ll do it. But if anythin’ goes wrong, you’re gonna answer to me personally.” Win could hear the muted sound of a vocal response, but couldn’t make out the words. “Stipulation. He’ll have full immunity. No. Matter. What. And he will not testify to anything later. He’ll give you a one on one confidential debriefing. In secret. Just the two of you. This is a deal breaker. Take it or leave it.” Brant paused to let the other man respond. “Just to reiterate. We’re talkin’ about a month maximum. And, if anything, I mean anything, goes south before that, I don’t care if it’s an hour after arrival, he’s outta there.”

    As Win sat and listened to the one sided conversation his respect for Brant blossomed. The prez negotiated like a lawyer and seemed to really give a damn about Win’s future.

    Brant hung up and looked at Win. “Gotta protect our golden goose.” Brant opened a drawer and pulled out a new burner phone.






    Two brothers unknown to each other on a crash course with fate and two broken hearts.

    Brigid was a graduate student at the University of Texas. It wasn't hard getting her thesis approved, but finding a Hill Country motorcycle club willing to give her access to their lifestyle was starting to look impossible. Then she got a lead. A friend of a friend had a cousin with family ties to The Sons of Sanctuary. Perfect. Or so she thought.

    Brash was standing in line at the H.E.B. Market when his world tipped on its axis. While waiting his turn to check out, his gaze had wandered to the magazine display and settled on the new issue of "NOW". The image on the cover, although GQ'd up in an insanely urbane way, was... him.

    After reading the article, he threw some stuff in a duffle and caught a plane to New York, on a mission to find a mysterious asshole walking around with his face.

    Brandon St. Germaine was at the top of the billionaire playboy heap when he learned about a side of the family that had been kept secret. He left New York, moved to Austin, and took most of the corporate empire with him.

    His dad, president of the club his grandfather founded, spent three decades converting the club's income sources to legitimate business dealings. One of the biggest earners was the security service. When a ridiculously wealthy, but justifiably frightened father hires the SSMC to protect his daughter from the psycho she's divorcing, Brand gets the job.


    EXCERPT...

    Cannon Johns was a man who'd once had the world in his hands and lost everything. When he rode his Harley underneath the motel office overhang just after midnight, he was soaking wet and looking for the only comfort life still had to offer. The escape of sleep.

    After being told there was no food available at that time of night, he pulled his ride into the room he'd just rented and went looking for dinner in the vending machines. When he was eight feet away, he saw movement by the Mountain Dew column. In addition to being bone weary, world weary, and out of options, he was out of sorts with no patience for shenanigans.

    "Come on out of there and state your business." He had to raise his voice to a near-shout to be heard over the pounding rain.

    After a slight hesitation, a small figure emerged in a yellow plastic poncho, the kind you can get at the grocery store for a couple of bucks. As soon as she reached up to pull the hood back from her head he knew it was a woman by the delicate size of her hands and the way she moved.

    The light was dim, but he saw her clearly as if it was noon on a bright sunny day. His late wife had once told him that he had to change out the light fixture in the kitchen because "nobody looks good in fluorescent light". The girl standing in front of him was proof it just ain't so.

    Her eyes were violet blue. And wide. He wasn't sure if that was because of fear or misery. Like him, she soaking wet. Unlike him, she was shivering. Whether that was from fear or cold he couldn't guess.

    "What the hell you doing out here, girl?" He looked around. "Something got you spooked?"

    She licked her bottom lip. "No, ah, I'm just a little down on luck is all. I don't want any trouble."

    "Don't want no trouble, huh?"

    It wasn't a question. He said it as if it was a provable fact. She shook her head to both punctuate his assessment and agree with it.

    "Yeah. Me, neither. At least not tonight."

              SPOTLIGHT SATURDAY: Scandals, Secrets and Murder   
    by Maggie Sefton


    Good Morning, Cozy Chicks Readers and Friends!  This is a Cozy Chicks Spotlight Saturday, so I am Spotlighting my Historical Mystery set in 1890 Washington, D.C.  Check it out!


    SCANDALS, SECRETS, AND MURDER:
    The Widow and the Rogue Mysteries
    by Maggie Sefton

    Powerful and corrupt U.S. Senator Horace Chester is stabbed to death in a Murder Bay brothel, wrapped in the arms of his evening’s entertainment.  His assailant escapes into the crush of unwashed bodies filling the streets of 1890 Washington’s notorious red light district just a few blocks from the President’s  House.  

    Amanda Duncan, wealthy young Washington widow, tries to ignore the clairvoyant visions that flash unbidden before her eyes.  Since she couldn’t save her own family, perhaps her visions can help others.  Now, Amanda turns her back on Washington society and deliberately treads where no respectable lady would dare.  This latest vision was most troubling.  She saw a man stabbed to death by a shadowy assailant and a young girl screaming. 

    Devlin Burke, English investor and sometime sleuth, is in Washington on family business and to rescue his nephew Freddie who’s gone bankrupt in one of Sen. Chester’s investment schemes.  In a rage, Freddie attacked Chester in a crowded Capitol Hill hallway only days before the senator’s murder.  Freddie has no alibi and is now the police inspector’s prime suspect. 




    Devlin and Amanda join forces in a search to find Senator Chester’s killer, which takes them from the Capital’s poshest salons into the crime-infested streets of Murder Bay.  Devlin’s sleuthing instincts and Amanda’s psychic detection lead them ever closer to the truth.  But the closer they approach, the more desperate the killer becomes---and the more dangerous. 

              What Are Some Great Comedy Movies?   
    I've watched quite a few different comedy movies over the years and I know for a fact that some of them aren't all that good. However, there are some comedies that are really good for one reason or another. Today, I'll be answering the question "what are some great comedy movies to watch" by providing you with a list of 10 really funny films that I've seen which I think are worth watching. So without further ado, here they are in no particular order:

    1. Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975)

    This one's a classic. Monty Python and the Holy Grail stars (and was written by) the members of the British Monty Python comedy group. There's a very strange style of comedy in this film, which takes place in medieval-period England. Basically, the story follows King Arthur (Graham Chapman) and his Knights of the Round Table on a quest to find the Holy Grail. On this quest are lots of random comedic events that allow for some of the Python group's surreal humour to shine through. Overall, this is an excellent and very hilarious movie which I highly suggest you watch if you're looking for a good laugh.

    Cast: Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones, Michael Palin

    2. A Serious Man (2009)

    Probably one of the best comedy movies of 2009 (and one of my favourite movies of the past few years), A Serious Man is one film that you should definitely watch. The movie was directed by the famous Coen Brothersand stars Michael Stuhlbarg (who was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for his performance in this movie) as Jewish professor Larry Gopnik whose life is in ruins and, consequently, whose faith is questioned. The film is a black comedy (it jokes about the circumstances of this man's life which would normally be nothing to joke about) and it does a very good job at entertaining you. The soundtrack in this movie is very well done and the actors do a great job (especially the minor ones that appear for only one or two scenes).

    Cast: Michael Stuhlbarg, Richard Kind, Sari Lennick, Fred Melamed, Aaron Wolff

    3. Airplane! (1980)

    Yet another classic. Airplane! is directed by Jim Abrahams, David Zucker and Jerry Zucker and features well-known actors such as Leslie Nielsen, Lloyd Bridges and Peter Graves. The film is a parody of disaster films, particularly focusing on the movie Zero Hour!. As such, the main plot of the movie is that there's an airplane crash that is imminent unless someone can stop it. There are lots of hilarious puns and jokes, some of which have become popularized and referenced numerous times elsewhere. This is a really funny movie and a quintessential comedy.

    Cast: Robert Hays, Julie Hagerty, Leslie Nielsen, Robert Stack, Lloyd Bridges

    4. Airplane II: The Sequel (1982)

    The sequel to Airplane! is just as good as the original. Many of the cast members return for this movie and some new faces (including William Shatner) make appearances. The plot now involves a space voyage to the moon which has been recently colonized. There's great fun to be had with this movie just as with the first film.

    Cast: Robert Hays, Julie Hagerty, Lloyd Bridges, Peter Graves, Chad Everett

    5. Vegas Vacation (1997)

    The main reason this film is on the list is because I saw it the other day and thought it was really well-done (all of the National Lampoon's Vacation films are funny however). In this film, Clark Griswold and his family head to Las Vegas for a vacation after Clark receives a bonus from his job. Hilarity ensues as the Griswold family splits up and each of the members decide to do their own thing. Great film.

    Cast: Chevy Chase, Beverly D'Angelo, Ethan Embry, Marisol Nichols, Randy Quaid

    6. The Great Outdoors (1988)

    The Great Outdoors is a humourous movie similar to Vegas Vacation except the vacation is out in the woods and there's a greater focus on family relationships (which we see a little bit in Vegas Vacation with Clark's cousin Eddie). The movie stars Dan Aykroyd and John Candy, two comedy legends who have some funny moments in this film.

    Cast: Dan Aykroyd, John Candy, Stephanie Faracy, Annette Bening, Chris Young

    7. Yes Man (2008)

    Yes Man is a really good Jim Carrey comedy. It's probably one of his better recent comedies (although I haven't seen too many of his more recent films, so I could be wrong). The basic premise of Yes Man is that Carrey's character Carl takes up the challenge to agree to anything that anyone asks him to do (hence the title “Yes Man”). Carrey performs well here, but one notable character that I think really makes this movie hilarious is Rhys Darby's character Norman. He doesn't have the largest role in the film, but he has some hilarious moments.

    Cast: Jim Carrey, Zooey Deschanel, Bradley Cooper, John Michael Higgins, Rhys Darby

    8. The Men Who Stare at Goats (2009)

    The Men Who Stare at Goats is a rather strange comedy which is the main reason why it's funny. Apparently based on real events, the story involves a reporter named Bob Wilton (played by Ewan McGregor) who finds out about a secret U.S. training operation to experiment with psychic powers. It's definitely something you should watch if you're looking for something out of the ordinary.

    Cast: George Clooney, Ewan McGregor, Jeff Bridges, Kevin Spacey

    9. Death at a Funeral (2007)

    I'm a big fan of a lot of British comedies and this is no exception. The movie tells the story of a funeral of the main character Daniel's (played by Matthew Macfadyen) father and how during the procession many crazy events occur. It's definitely a good film, especially if you're a fan of black comedy or British comedy.

    Cast: Matthew Macfadyen, Rupert Graves, Andy Nyman, Kris Marshall, Peter Dinklage

    10. And Now for Something Completely Different (1971)

    This is another Monty Python movie. The film consists of sketches from the British comedy series Monty Python's Flying Circus (featuring the Python group). The film was made in order to show the series to an American audience who wouldn't have been familiar with the British sketch comedy series. It's a very funny movie and features some famous sketches such as The Lumberjack Song.

    Cast: Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones, Michael Palin

    So there are 10 comedy films that I think are pretty good. Now it's your turn. Do you have any favourite comedies that I haven't listed here? Let me know in the comments.

              Jeszcze o intronizacji Chrystusa. Kim była mistyczka Rozalia Celakówna?   

    bishops-1343063_960_720

    bishops-1343063_960_720Episkopat polski wydał w czerwcu br. „Komentarz do Jubileuszowego Aktu Przyjęcia Jezusa za Króla i Pana”, w którym wyjaśnia sens całego przedsięwzięcia. Czytamy tam, że potrzeba intronizacji Chrystusa wynika z objawień, jakich doświadczyła około 1937 r. Rozalia Celakówna, krakowska pielęgniarka i mistyczka. W objawieniach tych, jak piszą biskupi, „Jezus domaga się m.in. aktu intronizacyjnego od narodu polskiego. Świadczy o tym choćby ten zapis (cytuje się fragment objawienia): >Jest ratunek dla Polski: jeżeli mnie uzna za swego Króla i Pana w zupełności przez intronizację, nie tylko w poszczególnych częściach kraju, ale w całym państwie z rządem na czele. To uznanie ma być potwierdzone porzuceniem grzechów i całkowitym zwrotem do Boga<”.

    Dokument, który zacytowałem, został włączony do materiałów upowszechnianych przez episkopat z okazji uroczystości intronizacyjnych 19 listopada br. Ma więc wysoką rangę.

    Warto bliżej przyjrzeć się Rozalii Celakównie i jej objawieniom (zamieszczam poniżej fragment artykułu „Intronizacji Chrystusa nie będzie ...” - link na końcu).

    Kim była Rozalia Celakówna?

    Sama Rozalia Celakówna jest najmniej winna całej tej aferze z intronizacją, chociaż to jej wizje stały się podstawą pomysłów intronizacyjnych.

    Rozalia ZdjęcieByła pielęgniarką, zwykłą i uczciwą kobietą, ale nadmiernie przejmującą się religią i cierpiącą na poważne zaburzenia psychiczne. Miała wielokrotnie widzenia i słyszała głosy (częsty symptom zaburzeń psychicznych i schizofrenii), które pojmowała jako objawienia pochodzące od Jezusa. Zaburzenia te wpływały niekorzystnie na jej życie i powinno się jej z tego powodu współczuć.

    Pretensję trzeba mieć do kościelnego otoczenia, które w dobrej lub złej wierze zaczęło żerować na jej przypadłości. Duchowni zachęcali ją do spisywania wizji, pobudzali zamiast uspokajać, umacniali wiarę w prawdziwość jej kontaktów z Jezusem. Atmosfera niepokoju przed 1939 r. stymulowała lęk przed wojenną katastrofą i apokaliptyczne nastroje. W 1937 i 1938 r. Rozalia doznawała objawień, dokładnie i obszernie przez nią spisanych, które stały się podstawą późniejszego ruchu intronizacyjnego.

    Znalazł się lekarz, który na zlecenia władz kościelnych w 1938 r. wydał pozytywne orzeczenie o jej stanie psychicznym.

    Sprawa objawień i intronizacji zaczęła żyć własnym życiem, machina kościelna produkująca cuda, objawienia i świętych, mełła powoli ale skutecznie. Rozalia zmarła w 1944 r., a po jej śmierci znajdowali się wpływowi ludzie zdolni nadawać jej objawieniu coraz większe znaczenie i rozgłos. Odpowiednie instancje kościelne, zamiast powiedzieć zdecydowane „nie”, uwiarygodniały prawdziwość jej rozmów z Chrystusem. W 1996 r. rozpoczął się proces beatyfikacyjny, zakończony pozytywnie na szczeblu diecezjalnym w 2007. Dokumenty zostały przekazane do watykańskiej Kongregacji Spraw Kanonizacyjnych.

    Gwoli sprawiedliwości trzeba powiedzieć, że jeszcze przed wojną Rozalia spotykała czasami trzeźwych kapłanów. W jej notatkach czytamy: „Jedni spowiednicy mówili, że mam pomieszanie zmysłów, inni, że im Bóg nie dał zrozumienia mej duszy, a inni jeszcze mnie besztali, że opowiadam takie rzeczy, które się nie dzieją na świecie, a jeszcze inni wprost mówili, że to wszystko jest nienormalne”.

    Objawienia

    Jeśli starczy wam cierpliwości, przeczytajcie poniższe cytaty z obszernych notatek Rozalii. Warto przeczytać, bo inaczej trudno zrozumieć, jak wielkich nadużyć intelektualnych i moralnych dokonują pospołu episkopat, Kościół i ruchy intronizacyjne.

    Pewnego razu Rozalia upadła zemdlona i tak opisuje swój stan:

    "Odczuwałam ogień piekielny na sobie, który zdawał się palić me ciało. Ryk i wycie szatanów było tak przejmujące, że żaden rozum ludzki tego nie pojmie. Gdy Bóg w ten sposób duszę krzyżuje i zostawia w ciemności – wówczas człowiek nic nie może pomóc".

    Inne widzenie:

    "Zbliżył się do mnie Pan Jezus, ujął mnie za ramię i wyszedł z tej sali na korytarz ze mną. Był ubrany w suknię białą i płaszcz bordo. Nie mogę określić z czego względnie jaki był materiał. W boku Jezusowym była Rana. O z jakąż miłością i słodyczą przemówił do mnie, do tak ogromnie nędznej duszy (...): >Moje drogie dziecko popatrz, jak straszną boleść zadają mi grzechy nieczyste<".

    Około 1937 r. pojawiają się widzenia coraz częściej mające za temat Polskę, świat, wojnę i intronizację. Oto Rozalia widzi postać i słyszy głos:

    "Nastaną straszne czasy dla Polski. Burza z piorunami oznacza karę Bożą, która dotknie naród Polski za to, że ten naród odwrócił się od Pana Boga przez grzeszne życie. Naród Polski popełnia straszne grzechy i zbrodnie, a najstraszniejsze z nich są grzechy nieczyste i morderstwa, i wiele innych grzechów”.

    ,,Moje dziecko, za grzechy i zbrodnie (wymieniając zabójstwa i rozpustę) popełniane przez ludzkość na całym świecie ześle Pan Bóg straszne kary. Sprawiedliwość Boża nie może znieść dłużej tych występków. Ostoją się tylko te państwa, w których będzie Chrystus królował. Jeżeli chcecie ratować świat, trzeba przeprowadzić Intronizację Najświętszego Serca Jezusowego we wszystkich państwach i narodach na całym świecie. Tu i jedynie tu jest ratunek. Które państwa i narody jej nie przyjmą i nie poddadzą się pod panowanie słodkiej miłości Jezusowej, zginą bezpowrotnie z powierzchni ziemi i już nigdy nie powstaną".

    ,,Trzeba wszystko uczynić, by Intronizacja była przeprowadzona. Jest to ostatni wysiłek Miłości Jezusowej na te ostatnie czasy! Pytam z bojaźnią tej osoby, czy Polska się ostoi? Odpowiada mi, że Polska nie zginie, o ile przyjmie Chrystusa za Króla w całym tego słowa znaczeniu, jeżeli się podporządkuje pod prawo Boże, pod prawo Jego miłości; inaczej, moje dziecko, nie ostoi się. (...) W tej chwili powstał straszliwy huk – owa kula (glob ziemski) pękła. Z jej wnętrza wybuchnął ogromny ogień, za nim polała się obrzydliwa lawa jak z wulkanu, niszcząc doszczętnie wszystkie państwa, które nie uznały Chrystusa. Widziałam zniszczone Niemcy i inne zachodnie państwa Europy. Z przerażeniem uciekałam wprost do tej osoby – pytam – czy to koniec świata, a ten ogień i lawa czy to jest piekło – otrzymuję odpowiedź: to nie jest koniec świata ani piekło, tylko straszna wojna, która ma dopełnić dzieła zniszczenia. Granice Polski były nienaruszone – Polska ocalała. Ta osoba nieznana mówi jeszcze do mnie: >Państwa oddane pod panowanie Chrystusa i Jego Boskiemu Sercu dojdą do szczytu potęgi i będzie już jedna owczarnia i jeden pasterz<. Po tych słowach wszystko znikło".

    I na koniec fragment, z którego pochodzi cytat eksponowany przez episkopat w „Komentarzu do Aktu Przyjęcia Jezusa za Króla" (tekst pogrubiony):

    "Zdawało mi się, że ten ogień zniszczy całkowicie cały świat. Po pewnym czasie ten ogień ogarnął całe Niemcy niszcząc je doszczętnie tak, że ani śladu nie pozostało z dzisiejszej Trzeciej Rzeszy. Wtem usłyszałam w głębi duszy głos i równocześnie odczułam pewność niezwykłą, że tak się stanie, czego nie potrafię opisać: >Moje dziecko, będzie wojna straszna, która spowoduje takie zniszczenie. Niemcy upadną i już nigdy nie powstaną za karę, bo Mnie nie uznają jako Boga Króla i Pana swego. Wielkie i straszne są grzechy i zbrodnie Polski.
