'Breakthrough Is Only A Phone Call Away'

Kate and Gerry McCann remain "confident" that everything possible is being done to find their missing daughter. The couple have had another meeting with Portuguese police to discuss the search for four-year-old Madeleine. Afterwards, Gerry said: "Kate and I are confident that every avenue is being explored." The McCanns believe that "the vital piece of information that leads to Madeleine is only a phone call away". (Sky News)

On A Storyteller's Night'

Magnum live on Channel Four's E.C.T. on 14 June 1985

Sadly Bob's microphone had problems at the beginning and his vocals weren't heard until they sorted out the problem a bit into the song. It is still a classic song though and worth its inclusion in 'Music Choice'.

Daily Merlin 31st July 2007

There are a number of 'plot' lines presented to the public of this world relating the the mystery surrounding the disappearance of Madeleine McCann. Nothing truly substantial appears to be before the observer's eyes. It is a enchanter's tapestry made from gossamer threads and clouds in truth. Hints and distractions as the wild geese fly across the trail and the stream teems with red herrings. It has become very difficult to make sense of what is really being said. Apparently. However it is all a cover and a brick wall as I've said before. It is an unsurmountable obstacle seemingly behind which the truth hides itself away.

We are permitted only to see what those behind the subterfuge wishes us to see ... but; cleverly one or two of the participants leave a trail of clues between the lines of what they apparently 'say' in their lines for the media headlines. it is an interesting trail too. Intuition knocks at that door in the wall and the seeker is able to make its way through .... as I need to attempt to make sense of the bundle of threads and untidy pieces which are given to us by trickle feed .. that dross we are forced to feed upon ...

I, for one, do not wish to be fooled by what is before my eyes. The story doesn't feel right. Analysing it all there are several conclusions I reach nearly every time. The single most important one being that the Shining Star remains safe and well. That she is like a catalyst to enable an end result not possible without the current events unfolding before our eyes. Also, ones in control of the media soldier ants can make Maddy 'appear' whenever they wish. But it is not in their interest for her to do yet. Not yet. Apparently, the current news stories suggest her re-emergence is still a long way off ... that the authorities are no nearer finding her trail and 'he' who has her .... it is to confuse us for sure and let us think they know not of her whereabouts when in truth they know perfectly. As do so many involved in the case. However, the veil around her and the situation is best described as 'holy silence' ... the very fibres that revelations and miraculous events are seemingly made from.

'The "profile" of Maddy's abductor described intuitively. Who is the current custodian of Madeleine McCann in other words?'

Queen of Wands.
9 of Pentacles
9 of Wands
Knight of Wands

Primarily, the Queen of Wands is a mother herself. She has very maternal & protective instincts towards Madeleine McCann. Catering for her needs; caring deeply for her. Sunflowers are seen to be in bloom in the foreground of the image. A 'pillar' of political standing appears to be behind the Queen of Wands as if she is linked to some campaign in some way. The Queen of Wands seems to be aware that Maddy must be seen by the outside world to be hidden. To those she links with, apart from those of the inner circle who already are aware, the Queen of Wands feigns any involvement in the situation. The 9 of Pentacles indicates she is deeply religious which is truly significant in the trail. In this image, though differently dressed, the female figure is gleaned to be the same as the Queen of Wands ... in the image a male priest hands her some rosary beads. A foreground of buildings like Rome loom in the background.

The 9 of wands imagery depicts a spokesperson before a crowd. Letting the crowds know only what the 'pillar' of political, standing behind the spokesperson, wishes to be told. Falsehoods relating to the Queen of Wands are plenty at this time.

The Knight of Wands depicts a knight on horseback riding across a drawbridge with the castle hidden somewhere in the background. Suggestions here that the Queen of Wands resides in 'the castle' from which this knight often leaves on the horseback of his campaigns. She too will leave behind her safe retreat from time to time. The overwhelming sense that Maddy is in truth with a group ... tightly packed in the centre she is under the custodianship of a family ... in a hidden location kept safe from harm. A caring mother with other children is close to her ... a well organised group are the outer circle around this inner core. Military minded and cunning ... there is an essential 'air' that the identity of the Queen of Wands must never be known. The need for false trails and subterfuge are thus essential here ... to distract attention from this core of the situation. The Knight of Wands & the Queen of Wands suggest the two could be related. Three tarot images of wands ... indicate magical weaving and active deceit ...

Electronic Voice Phenomenon (EVP)

Interest in EVP apparently began in the1920s.

It is possible to construct an apparatus which will be so delicate that if there are personalities in another existence or sphere who wish to get in touch with us in this existence or sphere, this apparatus will at least give them a better opportunity to express themselves than the tilting tables and raps and ouija boards and mediums and the other crude methods now purported to be the only means of communication ...

Sentient world: war games on the grandest scale

Perhaps your real life is so rich you don't have time for another. Even so, the US Department of Defense (DOD) may already be creating a copy of you in an alternate reality to see how long you can go without food or water, or how you will respond to televised propaganda. The DOD is developing a parallel to Planet Earth, with billions of individual "nodes" to reflect every man, woman, and child this side of the dividing line between reality and AR.

Called the Sentient World Simulation (SWS), it will be a "synthetic mirror of the real world with automated continuous calibration with respect to current real-world information", according to a concept paper for the project. "SWS provides an environment for testing Psychological Operations (PSYOP)," the paper reads, so that military leaders can "develop and test multiple courses of action to anticipate and shape behaviors of adversaries, neutrals, and partners".

"The idea is to generate alternative futures with outcomes based on interactions between multiple sides," said Purdue University professor Alok Chaturvedi, co-author of the SWS concept paper. (The Register)

Daily Osho Zen: 'Breakthrough'

It is the greatest adventure in life to go through a breakdown consciously. It is the greatest risk because there is no guarantee that the breakdown will become a breakthrough. It does become, but these things cannot be guaranteed. Your chaos is very ancient - for many, many lives you have been in chaos. It is thick and dense. It is almost a universe in itself. So when you enter into it with your small capacity, of course there is danger. But without facing this danger nobody has ever become integrated, nobody has ever become an individual, indivisible.

Zen, or meditation, is the method which will help you to go through the chaos, through the dark night of the soul, balanced, disciplined, alert. The dawn is not far away, but before you can reach the dawn, the dark night has to be passed through. And as the dawn comes closer, the night will become darker.

The predominance of red in this card indicates at a glance that its subject is energy, power and strength. The brilliant glow emanates from the solar plexus, or center of power on the figure, and the posture is one of exuberance and determination.

All of us occasionally reach a point when "enough is enough." At such times it seems we must do something, anything, even if it later turns out to be a mistake, to throw off the burdens and restrictions that are limiting us. If we don't, they threaten to suffocate and cripple our very life energy itself.

If you are now feeling that "enough is enough," allow yourself to take the risk of shattering the old patterns and limitations that have kept your energy from flowing. In doing so you will be amazed at the vitality and empowerment this Breakthrough can bring to your life.

'The Third Temple'

The prophet Isaiah declared: 'And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord's house shall be established on the top of all the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all the nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Ya'aqov; and he will teach us of his ways, and we shall walk in his paths: for out of Ziyyon shall go forth Torah, and the word of the Lord from Yerushalayim.' (2:3)

This vision places the future Temple as a place for instruction and bringing forth God's word. The grand aim of the Temple is to be a house of blessing for all humankind.

Messianic groups among many Jews and among some sects of Christianity are calling for the destruction of Masjid al-Aqsa and the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem and replacing them with a modern-day replica of the First and Second Temples. While this subject has eluded media and political debate, it is a subject of real concern. Old Testament accounts of the future coming of the Messiah allude to the presence of the Temple. And, in fact, the Temple was said to be in place at the time of the arrival of Jesus. However, not accepting him as the Messiah, Jews still believe that the Messiah has yet to come. With this erroneous belief, there are many among them calling for the reconstruction of the Temple in an effort to welcome the Messiah.

Jesus is accepted by Muslims and Christians as the true Messiah. And it is accepted by both that he will come again in the End of Time. When he arrives he will fight an Anti-Christ, al-Masih ad-Dajjal. In Arabic this indivdual is often referred to as the Imposter Messiah - imposter because people will accept him as the Messiah. Christians believe that the establishment of the Third Temple will welcome this False Messiah. This is where things get twisted. Despite the fact that Christians believe that the Third Temple will herald the coming of the Anti-Christ, and despite the fact that Israel is not only killing Muslims but Christians as well in attempts to build it, there are right wing Christians and evangelicals who openly support the Israeli attempts to build the Third Temple.

The hope to return to Jerusalem and to rebuild the Temple has been a dream of the Jewish people for the last two thousand years. Millions of evangelic Christians pray for it, as well as "Free Masons" and other people. In the Jewish tradition the Temple represents the heart of God, Israel, and the heart in each of us where the Divine dwells. Ironically Israelis recoil from the idea of rebuilding the Temple. Some because it is not relevant to their lives, some out of fear that it will lead to confrontation with the Islamic world, and some from a religious belief that the Third Temple will not be built by human hands but will descend ready-made from heaven.

The Fox

The cunning fox hunts by mesmerising its intended prey. Often the Fox will perform a crazy cavorting ‘dance’ in a field close by to where a unsuspecting rabbit will reside. The Fox will juimp crazily into the air and make itself as noticeable as it can so the rabbit will be aware of its presence. The Fox’s intention is to enchant and mesmerise the rabbit with its ‘show’ … and as the rabbit watches the dance … the Fox will move gradually closer and closer until it is within striking range of the rabbit …

The fox was a common symbol for the devil during the middle ages. One of the oldest tales about the fox describes it feigning death in order to trap fowl. This fox is a symbol of the devil tempting man; therefore, it may be a reminder to the bearer to stay alert and resist temptation. The fox was also used to symbolise the struggle of the ordinary common folk against the feudal baron. It is therefore a symbol of one who will use all his shrewdness, sagacity, wit or wisdom for his own defense. It occurs quite frequently as a heraldic charge.

'Specially Trained' Police Now Fly In

Daily Express Headline; says: 'A team of British experts in crimes against children have flown to Portugal to help in the hunt for missing Madeleine McCann. The Cracker-style psychologists have been drafted in by senior Portuguese detectives as the inquiry into the four-year-old’s abduction yesterday reached a “critical” stage. The team includes senior police officers and criminologists specially trained in tackling child sex abuse and abduction cases. They will try to establish a likely psychological profile of Madeleine’s kidnapper and provide a vital breakthrough as police attempt to close the net on him.

All leave has been cancelled for Portuguese detectives. They hope that significant developments will emerge as they carry out a painstaking review of the case 89 days after Madeleine was snatched in Praia da Luz. Now it has been revealed that British police forces have played a major role in the hunt for Madeleine’s abductor. All 53 constabularies have been involved in elements of the inquiry. British officers have interviewed 490 holidaymakers who were in the resort when the kidnap took place, and more than 2,500 telephone inquiries have been dealt with.

Last night Portuguese police refused to confirm the identities of the criminologists flown to the Algarve. But it was revealed that they are experts in the predatory behaviour of paedophiles and child abusers who have helped police catch serious sex offenders. They operate independently from the British-based Child Exploit­ation and Online Protection Centre, who sent two criminal behaviour experts to Portugal days after Madeleine vanished.

A Portuguese police source said: “We have reached a phase of the investigation where we are now trying to evaluate everything. “We are going through all the interviews, details, facts and clues to see if we have left anything out, and the British profilers are helping us to do that.

“They have the ability to create a psychological picture of the abductor and reveal his typical behaviour and lifestyle. Their help could be invaluable.”

The source added: “At the moment there is only one arguido and there are no new suspects.”

Yesterday Find Madeleine campaign manager Justine McGuinness said: “It’s normal for fresh eyes and ears to review the case. The huge scale of the inquiry is such that every British police force has now been involved, conducting interviews and gathering information. Madeleine’s parents cannot thank British police enough. They have been fantastic and their support has been rock solid throughout this. They have been doing everything they can to find Madeleine.”

Well .... that's a headline and a half. Mr Pied Piper I love you! Yes I do ... and I love the way you twist and turn this situation into a tension-filled storyline. Drawing the attention of the observer away from the contents of the charioteer's carriage. Skilfully associating the disappearance of Maddy with those shady people like sex offenders once more. Selling the story .... pulling the rubber band to breaking point as much as you dare, to enthrall & captivate the gullible observers. Meanwhile all attention is pulled away from the doctors three once more. The attention is taken back to what was explored by Gerry McCann on his recent US trip. But does this team REALLY relate to Maddy? I'm not convinced ... there is a hologram still before my eyes. My instincts assure me to remain wary of the dancing fox I see before my eyes as I read this story ...

There may be a cracker like team on its way ... Cracker? ... That's a thriller/ murder mystery serialisation from the BBC, starring Robbie Coltrane as Cracker ...yes I remember it well. And this seems a little like a script written by the same writers at times. More subliminal memories for the observers to be affected by it seems. Mr Pied Piper you are a very clever man. A lovable rogue .... but I'm afraid I can see little tiny holes in your reflected wall. Tiny rays of light shine through ... soon huge rents are going to form .... There is only Murat as the suspect. There is nothing else to answer the cries of 'something must be done with' ... currently it all appears under strict control. But I sense that the laws of the unforeseeable will come into play. If they haven't done already. However, for now I sit in the audience as one of the observers to see which way your illusionist takes us along your carefully contrived pathway ....

Turquoise: The Healing Stone

As a healing stone, Turquoise is among the most powerful of the crystal healing stones. Its energy can benefit the whole body, with special strengths in healing ailments of the immune, respiratory, waste and skeletal systems. Crystal healers recommend it for detoxification of alcohol, poison, pollution or radiation in the body, treatment of high blood pressure, asthma, infections and dental problems.

Turquoise has also been found to be a stone of communication. It can be recommended for people who have a fear of public speaking as it has the ability to make a speaker more eloquent, loving, creative and honest. But it is also improves the mental state overall by increasing all of the following positive mental characteristics: serenity, creativity, empathy, positive thinking, sensitivity, intuition, happiness wisdom all of which result in a calmer state that leads to greater self-realization. It is also considered a stone of friendship. As a communication stone it opens up the connections between friends and allowing love to flow in those communications, which strengthens the friendship bond.

Overall, Turquoise is said to open all chakras, permitting the stone’s powers of love and communication to flow through the entire being. It appears to be associated primarily with the Throat or 5th chakra. This chakra is the centre of communication, creativity, serenity and spiritual bonding. Turquoise can also benefit the operation of the Heart chakra by opening it up for giving and receiving love. On the brow chakra, it strengthens the connection to great spirit.

Psychic Vampires

When an attack takes place, the Psychic Vampire receives an energy surge while the victim experiences fatigue.

People who "suck" the energy of others are called "psychic vampires." This "sucking" takes place when one's energy is depleted and needs to be replenished so he or she "sucks" the energy of another person. It is not unusual for a person who is ill or feeling inadequate emotionally to draw upon or deplete energized individuals of their life force. These "suckers" are not bad people, most of them are not aware on a conscious level that they are doing what they are doing. Still, their unknowing actions can play havoc with anyone who leaves an energetic opening for this type of thievery. It is important for us to be aware that we may be susceptible to having our energies stolen from us and learn ways to protect ourselves.

The harm in a psychic attack is that there is no fair exchange of energy and therefore one feels depleted while the other becomes energized.

Traits of A Psychic Vampire

  • experiences feelings of abandonment or rejection
  • needs constant reassurance
  • never feels satisfied
  • seeks nurturing
  • low energy - fatigued

Symptoms Of Psychic Attack

  • leaky or diminishing aura
  • dizziness
  • loss of energy
  • muscle tension
  • mental confusion
  • headaches
  • chronic fatigue
  • sleep disturbances
  • irritability
  • depressed mood
  • physical illness

Protection Against Psychic Attack

  • Become aware of which individuals deplete your energy and limit your contact with them.
  • Visualization Techniques: Build walls of protection or create a bubble of light surrounding your auric field.
  • Crystal Shields - amulets for protection

Calling all Internet Angels: Looking Into Madeleine's Eyes

Every once in awhile someone comes up with a winning idea for a potential miracle, courtesy of the Worldwide Internet. Such a winning idea came CFP’s way today from dear friend and retired police officer Tom Cooke, via Phil McCann, the aunt of four-year-old, still missing Madeleine McCann.

The story of the missing child is starting to fade from world media headlines because of time lapse.

…”The story is only being covered in Britain, Eire and Portugal,” McCann wrote in what could be `The Chain Letter of All Time’. “We don’t believe that she is in Portugal anymore and need to get her picture across Europe as quickly as possible. Suggestions are welcome.”

McCann’s noble mission is to “cover 80 per cent of the world’s inboxes in two weeks.” And his idea for people everywhere to “look into Madeleine’s eyes” is ingenious.

Madeleine’s right eye, where the pupil runs into the blue-green iris, is distinctive and serves as an I.D. that is fail proof. The idea of identifying Madeleine through her eye originated with a new picture that rekindled the hopes of her heartbroken family.

The missing Madeleine’s uncle John and Aunt Diane made an appeal poster from the remarkable picture, which features the Crimestoppers telephone number. They are now in the process of distributing the poster as far afield as possible.

But what could be more thorough than reaching 80 per cent of the world’s inboxes as a method of distribution?

“The purpose of the poster is to highlight the distinction in Madeleine’s eye,” said Mrs. McCann. “We want to make the most of it, because we know her hair could potentially be cut or dyed.The poster was designed by a friend of the family and I’ve begun emailing it to acquaintances in different parts of the world,” added Madeleine’s uncle. “I’m asking people to circulate it the best they can and make it be seen.” (Canada Free Press)

More On The Creations Out Of Earth

In the beginning this Chaotic water was entirely Volatile, because if you did distil it before putrefaction, every drop of it ascends like volatile water; By fermentation and putrefaction it gets a basis of fixation and precipitates its subtle earth.

The most volatile part of this water generates Animals, when it becomes a little fixer it generates Vegetables, and when it becomes quite fixed it generates Minerals and Metals. Whosoever like to generate minerals, let him take the fixest parts, such as earth and water. If you like to produce Vegetables, add to the earth and water some air and fire. If you want to bring forth Animals add still more of the most volatile, that is more air and fire, as containing more of the Universal. The vegetable department stands between Animals and Minerals. because out of them a Mineral or Stone may as soon be produced as an animal.

The efficient cause which has enabled us to see and feel the Universal Corporified Sperm, is putrefaction, the Principal Key whereby the Lock of Natural Subjects may be opened.

The cause of fermentation and putrefaction is the implanted spirit which is never idle whenever he meets with Humidity, his own instrument, by means of which this spirit is ever busy, either visibly or invisibly, either sensibly or insensibly, this causes fermentation and putrefaction; and out of a volatile makes a fixed, and out of a fixed again a volatile and this mutation is continued without ceasing.

This spirit breaks and dissolves Stone and Rocks, which he himself has coagulated and reduces them into Sand and Dust; this same spirit reduces Trees into Mould and earth, and putrefies Animals, and again from such putrefied substances produces Vegetables and Minerals, and this continues from one thing into another. (Golden Chain of Homer)

Floods Threaten Ancient & Historic Sites

Guardian UK: says; 'Severe weather is washing away thousands of years of heritage in the UK. Maev Kennedy surveys the damage to Silbury Hill and Rotherwas Ribbon.'

Rain falling remorselessly on Silbury Hill on Thursday 26th July 2007, pooled on the sodden fields at its foot, and dangerously seeped down into the core of the most enigmatic prehistoric monument in Europe. The entire hill near Avebury in Wiltshire is artificial, built around 4,500 years ago by stupendous human effort with an estimated 35m baskets of chalk. Yesterday, archaeologists and engineers were engaged in urgent discussions on how to save Silbury, after the torrential rain caused further damage to a structure already weakened by earlier floods.

The engineering contractors Skanska, who were carrying out structural repairs for English Heritage, pulled its miners off the hill on Monday, fearing that the 40-year-old tunnel in which they were working might collapse. A few days ago their temporary access track was under a metre of water.

Silbury's purpose - observatory, ritual platform or simply awe-inspiring demonstration of power and wealth - is still guesswork. No original chamber or passage has ever been detected. The site is wreathed in folklore of treasure hoards, which have attracted centuries of treasure-hunters.

In floods five years ago, a chasm opened at the top of the hill, where a poorly filled 200-year-old shaft collapsed, and water poured down into the structure, seeping into voids left by generations of later diggers, including the tunnels from a major excavation in the 1960s. The plan, now left in chaos by the weather, was to empty those tunnels completely of their previous loose fill, and then pack them solidly again with chalk. Instead rain is still seeping into the mound, from the summit where the earlier domed repair has already partly washed away, causing damage which can't even be fully assessed until the rain stops.

Silbury is not alone. As well as the human tragedies, the floods have been washing away thousands of years of history, across a swath of central and southern England. Silbury has been unmissable for millennia, but in Hereford, rain has been scouring away parts of a mysterious structure uncovered only a few weeks ago: the Rotherwas Ribbon, a serpentine path surfaced with deliberately burned stones, winding up a shallow hill - slap in the path of an unpopular new road plan.

Brown Bounce Continues According To Poll

Labour's "Brown bounce" in the polls has continued with a survey putting the party six points clear of the Conservatives. And the poll for Tuesday's Times had bad news for Tory leader David Cameron personally, putting him behind Prime Minister Gordon Brown in almost all measures. On a scale of one to 10, Mr Cameron's handling of the flooding was rated 3.75 on average, against 5.05 for Mr Brown and 5.94 for the much-criticised Environment Agency.All of them were outpolled by the workers on the frontline - local authorities (6.14), the Armed Forces (7.82) and the fire service (8.72).The Populus poll for The Times put Labour on 39% (up two points on a similar poll last month), the Conservatives on 33% (down one) and the Liberal Democrats on 15% (down three).Some 71% of voters taking part in the survey regard Mr Brown as "strong" - six points down since June, but 20 points up on last October.Mr Brown was rated as having what it takes to be a good Prime Minister by 56% of those questioned (up 19 points since last October) compared with 32% for Mr Cameron (down 10 points).

Water back in 65,000 homes

The Sun; says; 'Water should return to more than 65,000 flood hit homes over the next few days. At lunchtime today, water started travelling through an extensive network of pipes to homes in Gloucester, Quedgeley, Bishop’s Cleeve and Prestbury.

Martin Kane, director of Severn Trent Water, said it could take up to three days as returning the water pressure to normal was a long process.He said: “We’ve got to bring the water into the network in a systematic way.“Mains water has to be pressurised at a certain level before household appliances such as washing machines can operate. And it takes time for such a vast amount of water to reach the right pressure. There is still a very long way to go.”

Speaking at a press conference at Gloucestershire police headquarters, he said operations to restore water to a further 60,000 homes in Cheltenham and the surrounding area could get under way in the next few days. He added that it was hoped mains water could be restored across the whole of the area affected by flooding by August 5. The water supply slowly being restored over the area is strictly for drinking and washing only.

Bush And Brown Present United Front

Sky News Report; says: 'Gordon Brown and George Bush have presented a united front at their first joint news conference. They stressed the importance of their shared values and the strength of the relationship between Britain and America. President Bush said: "We have an obligation, it seems to me, to work for freedom and justice around the world."I have found the person who shares that vision".

He congratulated Mr Brown on his "steady and quick response" to the recent terrorism threat in the UK. And he said success in Afghanistan and Iraq was "integral" to the fight against international terrorism. Mr Brown said that Britain and America had "duties to discharge and responsibilities to keep" in Iraq. He said their shared objective was to give control of security back to the Iraqi government.

Emotional Farewell for the McCanns

Sky News Headline; says: 'Madeleine McCann's godparents have left Portugal after providing "unbelievable support" since the four-year-old went missing. Gerry McCann took his sister Trisha Cameron and her husband Sandy to the airport for "an emotional farewell".The couple first went to Portugal on the second day of the search for Madeleine after she disappeared on May 3.

Madeleine's father said: "They have offered us the most unbelievable support and I am not sure how we would have functioned without them here." When the McCanns travelled around Europe to promote the Find Madeleine campaign, Trisha and Sandy stayed in the Algarve to look after their twins Sean and Amelie. A family spokesman said the Camerons were "like second parents" to the McCann children.

Gerry and Kate wanted the twins to have "a safe environment" and "normal routine" while they went to countries including Italy, Spain and Germany, he said at the time of one of their trips.

Writing on his blog, Gerry paid tribute to his sister and brother-in-law for their help.

"They have been the silent face of the campaign to find Madeleine, putting their lives on hold to help us get through each difficult day."

"Avalon Dawn"

Tarot of Atlantis

Atlantis The first person to mention Atlantis was the great Greek philosopher, Plato, about 2,500 years ago. Wanting to write his most famous dialogue, Republic, he planned a trilogy of works, each centered on the dissertations of certain figures of his time: The astronomer Timaeus would have talked about the origin of the world. The poet and historian Critias would have told about the war between Athens and Atlantis. And the Syracusan general, Hermocrates, would have dwelled on some other topic unknown to us. The trilogy, however, was never completed.

In Timaeus Plato has Critias tell a story, which he had heard from an elderly poet when he was a child. According to this story, the great lawgiver Solon, having gone to Egypt, had spoken of "ancient facts" with the old priests of Isis around 590 BC. One of these priests had told him that the Greeks should be considered a young population compared to another one, of which the Egyptians possessed various written evidence. In fact, a great civilization had developed much earlier on an island located beyond the Pillars of Hercules. The people of this island had waged war against Greece, Egypt, and all of the regions on this side of the strait, but they had been defeated. There are other references to Atlantis in the next dialogue. The island is described in detail: There was a large fertile plain through which two rivers ran, one with hot water and the other with cold water. Mountains on two sides protected it from the wind and a city with a circular layout rose on the southern coast. This city was surrounded by two rings of land and three of water, connected by bridges and tunnels that let ships pass. The royal palace and a temple whose walls were covered with gold stood on the centre island.

Is this story just a myth? There are some who believe that Plato's tale is nothing but an allegory that the philosopher used to better illustrate the characteristics of an ideal state. Others, however, will not rule out that traces of real facts also converge in the myth. Since Plato tells of a continent beyond the Pillars of Hercules, which are traditionally located at the strait of Gibraltar, a land rising from the middle of the Atlantic Ocean has long been dreamt. The Pillars of Hercules actually decreed the boundaries of the Greek world and, as recent studies seem to now confirm, their location was different from the one that was passed down to us. In fact, if they defined the area under Greek influence, the latter might not have extended beyond the eastern Mediterranean for a long time:

Other populations had predominated the coasts and routes on the other side of Sicily and the Gulf of Sirte. Egyptian sources give an account of these "Sea Peoples" and it is known that they joined forces with Libyan populations and fought against Egypt, Asia Minor, Cypress, and Syria on two occasions. The invaders were defeated under Pharoah Merenptah and Pharoah Ramses III around 1178 and 1175 BC. A parallel can easily be traced between certain aspects of Plato's tale and these actual world wars of ancient times. Egyptian documents show that the Sea Peoples were also called "King of the Western Islands" and they consisted of various ethnic groups. One that distinguished itself was the Shardana. The Shardana lead us to Sardinia not just because of linguistic assonance but also because of the indisputable similarities between the warriors depicted in Egyptian bas-reliefs and the figures represented in the small nuraghic bronzes. Sardinia, which for the Greeks might once have been beyond those Pillars of Hercules that divided the eastern Mediterranean from the western Mediterranean, is a large island that rises to the west of Egypt and Greece: A land with a mild climate and lush vegetation, rich in precious metals, which in ancient times must have seemed like a far-away Eden.

If we let our imaginations run free, it is easy to imagine that that lost island experienced a golden age - a Utopian age in which people were able to live in perfect harmony with nature. What happened on that happy island? Did a huge wave caused by an earthquake carry away the cities and villages? Clues, hypotheses - nothing certain except perhaps a single fact: Atlantis is a profoundly Mediterranean myth. Doesn't Critias perhaps say that on that far-off island there was a marvellous royal power that dominated "the regions of Libya all the way to Egypt and of Europe all the way to Tyrrhenia" And doesn't Tyrrhenia perhaps mean "land of towers" And right in the middle of that sea that we call the Tyrrhenian Sea, aren't the thousands of nuraghi scattered across the Sardinian hills towers?

The fact that the idea of the vanished continent captures our imaginations so much might mean that we hold the ancestral memory of that which was. Perhaps that lost continent is just a desire, a hope, the need to believe that it could have been a truly happy period that could return in the future.

But Atlantis, the great island in the sea of our imagination is also a cautionary epos, the symbol not just of a tragedy buried in history (maybe), but also a fear continuously present in our subconscious. Because if examined carefully, the sea that invades the land and submerges it is like the Flood and the message contained in the myth is identical: The water of the primordial flow of many myths about the creation, can become an element of dissolution and drowning in those cases in which man loses awareness of his own guilt.

Tarot of Atlantis
People have been fascinated by the legend of Atlantis since the Greek philosopher Plato first wrote about the city over 2,500 years ago. These cards depict the people and stories of Atlantis re-interpreted through the Tarot. Some of the Major Arcana show the destruction of Atlantis. For example, The Tower is illustrated by a gigantic tidal wave about to engulf the city walls and Judgment shows a volcano and earthquake, leading to the city's demise. Some cards are more contemplative; The Star shows an Astrologer studying the heavens and presumably predicting the imminent catastrophe. Some cards will appeal to puzzle-solvers. For example, The Lovers shows two near-naked men wrestling. This may not make much sense until you remember that during his life Plato was more famous for being a wrestler than he was for being a philosopher.

All the Minor Arcana are fully illustrated. These depict everyday life in Atlantis. The Pentacles concentrate on trading activities, Wands show idols and statues, Cups are illustrated with chalices, vases and bowls and Swords depict weapons and fighting. Several of the Cups cards show orgies where naked couples writhe in drunken ecstasy. There are some references to The Rider-Waite, but not enough to class this deck as a Rider-Waite 'clone'.

The small booklet includes a helpful four-page article about the legends of Atlantis. The deck will certainly appeal to anyone interested in Atlantis and its stories. However, because the cards are not particularly influenced by The Rider-Waite, they may not be suitable for absolute beginners.

Daily Merlin 'A New Rhythm Today Arrives'

Maddy is indeed safe and well. She must reside in her current locality; wander the same gardens and rooms ... but only because it is to prevent her being sighted as living there.

A new impulse courses through the ethers around me tonight. There is a different feel to the air. Much more vibrant and positive. The atmosphere is more hopeful than it was before. I'm able to witness the insights in a fresh light. A new 'line' of intuition grips my mind tonight. Something intriguing grips my mind this night ...

'Atlantis Tarot'

(Focus of intuition withheld at this point in time)

The Wheel provides the image of a definite pattern forming. Viewing the news and the events close up reveals very little' much like a face up close to a painting shows only the canvas and not the picture itself. Stepping back .... gazing the overview it is much clearer what this all is relating to. The local picture makes no sense; seemingly unconnected events out of sync. But viewing it from a greater perspective ... it is clear this Maddy's disappearance is one of the parts of a greater design. Her survival has to be guaranteed. She is a precious cargo indeed. Treated with kid gloves. Her re-emergence the energy required to push an agenda long overdue into the forefront and into the public arena.

8 of Pentacles depicts a master craftsman mending the spokes of a wheel. Symbolically, once the spokes are repaired the wheel will turn. The craftsman an archetypal member of all the master guilds and skillful minds who've turned the wheel through the ages. This truth may not be apparently clear to those who read these words. It may require much thought to comprehend. But know something is very clearly around this case, which has not been hidden particularly well by the 'perpetrators'. Know this has been a deliberation on the part of these mystery schools. It is not something they wish to hide. All the religious and mystical symbolism & significance is meant to be there ... this is very clear. There is pure method in this madness. This is truly a symbolic power play after all. The re-enactment of events from previous times. A play on the world stage. A charade just like it is meant to be.

Madeleine McCann is safe; was alway meant to be safe. She merely plays her innocent part in a powerful play. A self fulfilling prophecy perpetrated by the secretive and the very influential ... in order to ensure what was written ... so it is done. The McCanns are expected to play their parts. For them Maddy's disappearance must be real. They must not know for sure if Maddy will return. Someone around them knows the script and the act ... it is how it appears when viewed from this lofty height.

10 of Swords depicts the intended outcome in the years to come. There is a major 'structure' of mystical significance awaiting the instruction to be built. So many confrontations take place where this is to be symbolically built. Its existence is long overdue. This situation with Maddy's disappearance plays its part in the design around these events.

That which precedes this is an overview, the bigger picture if you will. In mundane terms it will not make much sense. It goes over my head as well. It is merely an impression passed forth to me ... an image of the entire structure occurring in this world today. The great work of the ages ... and the final plan. That which has been on the minds and the pens of the master craftsmen since Babylon.

Back down to earth;-

'Does Madeleine McCann continue to be safe and well? Where is she currently located?'

(undisclosed image) ... 'yes, Maddy is indeed safe and well. A potential detrimental card provided clearly reversed as a clear message that Maddy is currently safe & well and will be returned safe and well to her parents. Technically she is imprisoned ... she must reside in her current locality; wander the same gardens and rooms ... but only because it is to prevent her being sighted as living there.

3 of Wands ... Good prospects, within the boundaries/bounds of a family with young children of their own. Protected in a secluded location. but know the focus of the world closing in; the identity of the family with which Maddy is with cannot remain hidden indefinitely. Focus is homing in ... those who target and research as part of their job (journalists) are SO close to deducing where it is she resides. It is but a matter of time. A careless slip by the maternal custodian ... and the location will truly be known. Suspicious minds already suspect ... because in truth it is not far away at all.

"August appears a hopeful month for the world to receive footage of a sighting of Maddy as perhaps a way to let the world know she is indeed alive and well ..."

Now Maddy's Parents Friends Hit By Slurs

Daily Express Report; says: ' Family and friends of Madeleine McCann have been hit by new smears in Portugal. Relatives spoke out after Madeleine’s parents Kate and Gerry and their friends were accused of maintaining a pact of silence over the events of the night the girl was snatched. One report claimed police were concerned over inconsistencies in their statements and were treating the nine as suspects.

Portuguese newspaper Sol said detectives were investigating a possible link between chief suspect Robert Murat and two of the friends who are key witnesses in the case.

The McCanns, from Rothley, Leics, have been unable to defend themselves against allegations of a “cover-up”. Under Portuguese priv­acy laws they are banned from publicly talking about the investigation. But Madeleine’s aunt Philomena McCann said of the family’s mission to find their daughter: “The campaign will go on, whatever anyone says.

The Sol report said Murat, 33, has been asked by detectives if he knew one member of the group – hospital consultant Russell O’Brien, 36. It claimed police spoke to Dr O’Brien after it was discovered the pair were both in Exeter days before Madeleine was kidnapped. Murat spent 10 days in there, arriving back in the Algarve on May 1 – 48 hours before Madeleine was snatched. Dr O’Brien and his partner Jane Tanner, also 36, moved to a rented home in the city four weeks earlier.

Miss Tanner was the key witness who saw a man rushing away from the Ocean Club resort carrying a child wrapped in a blanket. Dr O’Brien told police he saw Murat near the McCann’s holiday apartment that night. He was one of three friends of the couple who confronted Murat two weeks ago in a showdown set up by police. Dr O’Brien, Fiona Payne and Rachael Oldfield were allowed to challenge Murat’s version of events.

Murat insists he met Dr O’Brien only after Madeleine’s abduction, when offering his services to family and police.

Find Madeleine campaign manager Justine McGuinness said last night: “It is absolutely not the case that anyone in the party with the McCanns had ever met Robert Murat before they went on holiday.”'

Nothing news in the information 'revealed' here. It is relating to previous 'slurs'. However, the suggests fresh events have unfolded in Portugal, but the Media is apparently not privy to the information; or able to reveal it here. At this moment in time . It may come out later ... as old news.

NZ: Rains prompt southern councils to activate civil defence

Yahoo Xtra News Headline; says: 'Flooding in South Canterbury and Otago and has prompted councils to activate their civil defence emergency operations centres. Civil defence headquarters in Waimate and Otago were activated as heavy rains hammered the lower part of the South Island. However, neither of the areas have, as yet, declared a state of emergency.

Waimate District Council spokeswoman Carolyn Johns said the roads around Morven, 34km north east of Oamaru, were extremely dangerous and the township itself had been flooded. However, the rains were easing and no-one had officially reported losing their electricity or telephone, she said. The council was advising people to keep off roads in the district, especially after dark. Further south, flooding closed State Highway 1 between Dunedin and Balclutha, Waikouaiti and Milton and SH83 between Pukeuri and Duntroon.

Monkey Puzzle?

.... below is another crop circle in the Avebury area. This time reported on 29th July 2007, the day after the posting reporting the 'The Morning Star' Crop Circle of 25th July 2007.

My first impression was a feeling this crop circle design reminded me of the monkey toys we have as kids. This may sound quite odd, but bear with me, please. The crop circle imagery is reminiscent of the 'magic monkey' depicted in the image at the bottom of the post. Except, in the crop circle imagery, the 'monkey' is about the clash the two cymbals together.

Looking at the crop circle image below; the central oval part of the crop circle design represents the face of the monkey. Immediately above the central oval and leading to the top right is the monkey's hat complete with bauble at the end, depicted by the circular disk with a small circle in the centre.

Move back to the central oval again, travel this time to the left and the circular disk with small circle in its centre seen slightly above the oval centre represents a cymbal being raised above the monkey's head.

Finally, returning back to the central oval once more, note the third circular disk below it ... this represents the other cymbal about to strike the higher cymbal. The connecting part of the design from central orb to this third circular disk represents the body of the monkey.

Can you see the striking resemblance now?

Interestingly, the crop circle image has the suggestion of three disks ... which in corresponding tarot cards is the three of coins, the Three of Pentacles ... or more importantly the Three of Spheres in the Servants of the Light tarot (see 3 of Spheres below). It is not identical to the image above but has similarities ... it has the interpretation of 'success'. 'The lord of material works' ...

Coincidental? In this modern mystery ... there is no such thing as coincidental.

Beckham Faces Fitness Battle

David Beckham faces a fitness test on Monday to determine whether the England midfielder flies with the Los Angeles Galaxy squad to Texas for their must-win SuperLiga clash with FC Dallas on Tuesday night.
Beckham has not played or even trained with his new team-mates since his brief debut for the Major League Soccer club against Chelsea nine days ago and has continued to struggle to overcome an injury to his left ankle first sustained on England duty against Estonia at the start of June.

Galaxy leave for California on Monday for Dallas, where they must win their final group game in the eight-team tournament if they are to progress to the knockout stage of the competition between MLS and Mexican clubs. With a return to the league campaign next Sunday in Toronto, however, Galaxy head coach Frank Yallop will not risk a seven-hour round trip to Texas if Beckham cannot prove his fitness and a decision will be made after training at the Home Depot Center.

The England star watched from the dugout on Saturday night as the Galaxy were beaten 2-1 by Chivas Guadalajara in front of 37,337 mostly Mexican fans at the Los Angeles Coliseum in a performance team captain Landon Donovan described as "awful." (Daily Express)

A 'Classic' from a least expected source ...

American wild boys W.A.S.P with the ballad 'Hold Onto My Heart'

Taken from the 1992 Crimson Idol album. A classic from a least expected source!

Inner Voice

If you have found your truth within yourself there is nothing more in this whole existence to find. Truth is functioning through you. When you open your eyes, it is truth opening his eyes. When you close your eyes, it is truth who is closing its eyes.

This is a tremendous meditation. If you can simply understand the device, you don't have to do anything; whatever you are doing is being done by truth. You are walking, it is truth; you are sleeping, it is truth resting; you are speaking, it is truth speaking; you are silent, it is truth that is silent.

This is one of the most simple meditation techniques. Slowly, slowly everything settles by this simple formula, and then there is no need for the technique. When you are cured, you throw away the meditation, you throw away the medicine. Then you live as truth - alive, radiant, contented, blissful, a song unto yourself. Your whole life becomes a prayer without any words, or better to say a prayerfulness, a grace, a beauty which does not belong to our mundane world, a ray of light coming from the beyond into the darkness of our world.

The Inner Voice speaks not in words but in the wordless language of the heart. It is like an oracle who only speaks the truth. If it had a face, it would be like the face at the center of this card - alert, watchful, and able to accept both the dark and the light, symbolized by the two hands holding the crystal. The crystal itself represents the clarity that comes from transcending all dualities.

The Inner Voice can also be playful, as it dives deep into the emotions and emerges again to soar towards the sky, like two dolphins dancing in the waters of life. It is connected with the cosmos, through the crescent-moon crown, and the earth, as represented by the green leaves on the figure's kimono.

There are times in our lives when too many voices seem to be pulling us this way and that. Our very confusion in such situations is a reminder to seek silence and centering within. Only then are we able to hear our truth.

Doctor relieved after being cleared

Dr Mohamed Haneef, 27, spent nearly four weeks in custody after being arrested at Brisbane airport as he was about to fly to India to see his wife and newborn daughter on July 2. He was released on Friday after Australia's chief prosecutor Damian Bugg said mistakes had been made and there was no evidence to support the charge against him.

In an emotional interview with Australia's Nine Network, Dr Haneef said supporting a terrorist organisation was not in his nature. "I never imagined, even in the remotest corner of my brain, that I would be labelled with such a defaming thing," he said. Appearing close to tears, he said if he had suspected his cousins were planning the attacks he would have passed the information on. "I would have let the parents know first, who are the main sufferers now," he said. "I really feel for them."

Dr Haneef, who flew to Bangkok on route to Bangalore, had been working at the Gold Coast Hospital in Queensland when he was detained, days after two cars containing petrol, gas cylinders and nails were discovered in London, and a burning car was driven into Glasgow airport. (Daily Express)

Mysticism & Pure Consciousness

The term ‘mysticism,’ comes from the Greek μυω, meaning “to conceal.” In the Hellenistic world, ‘mystical’ referred to “secret” religious rituals. In early Christianity the term came to refer to “hidden” allegorical interpretations of Scriptures and to hidden presences, such as that of Jesus at the Eucharist. Only later did the term begin to denote “mystical theology,” that included direct experience of the divine. Typically, mystics, theistic or not, see their mystical experience as part of a larger undertaking aimed at human transformation and not as the terminus of their efforts. Thus, in general, ‘mysticism’ would best be thought of as a constellation of distinctive practices, discourses, texts, institutions, traditions, and experiences aimed at human transformation, variously defined in different traditions.

Mystical experiences may represent a complex form of forgotten or suppressed human consciousness. Our minds are usually an enormously complex stew of thoughts, feelings, sensations, wants, snatches of song, pains, drives, daydreams and, so, consciousness itself more or less aware of it all. To understand consciousness in itself, the obvious thing is to clear away as much of this internal detritus and noise as possible. Mystics do precisely that, by way of the techniques of meditation or contemplation in their many forms.

During meditation, one begins to slow down the thinking process, and have fewer or less intense thoughts. One’s thoughts become as if more distant, vague, or less preoccupying; one stops paying as much attention to bodily sensations; one has fewer or less intense fantasies and daydreams. Thus by reducing the intensity or compelling quality of outward perception and inward thoughts, one may come to a time of greater stillness. Ultimately one may become utterly silent inside, as though in a gap between thoughts, where one becomes completely perception- and thought-free. One neither thinks nor perceives any mental or sensory content. Yet, despite this suspension of content, one emerges from such events confident that one had remained awake inside, fully conscious. This experience, which has been called the ‘pure consciousness event’, or PCE, has been identified in virtually every tradition. Though PCEs typically happen to any single individual only occasionally, they are quite regular for some practitioners. The pure consciousness event may be defined as a wakeful but contentless (non-intentional) consciousness.

But the story does not stop here. Regular and long-term meditation, according to many traditions, leads to advanced experiences, known in general as ‘enlightenment’. Their discriminating feature is a deep shift in epistemological structure: the experienced relationship between the self and one’s perceptual objects changes profoundly. In many people this new structure becomes permanent.

In Buddhism such Pure Consciousness Events are called by several names: nirodhasamapatti, or cessation meditation; samjnavedayitanirodha, the cessation of sensation and conceptualization; sunyata, emptiness; or most famously, samadhi, meditation without content. What is most fascinating about traditional Buddhist explorations of this state is that despite the fact that one is said to be utterly devoid of content, according to Yogacara Buddhist theorists one’s consciousness is said to persist as ‘some form of contentless and attributeless consciousness’. That is, despite the fact that one is not aware of any specific content or thought, ‘something persists’ in this contentlessness, and that is consciousness itself: ‘I, though abiding in emptiness, am now abiding in the fullness thereof‘ When discussing this possibility that one may abide in the ‘fullness’ of ‘emptiness’, Vasubandu states:

It is perceived as it really is that, when anything does not exist in something, the latter is empty with regard to the former; and further it is understood as it really is that, when, in this place something remains, it exists here as a real existent.

In sum, the PCE may be defined as a wakeful but contentless (non-intentional) experience. Though one remains awake and alert, emerging with the clear sense of having had ‘an unbroken continuity of experience’, one neither thinks, nor perceives nor acts.

Brown Arrives For Talks With Bush

Prime Minister Gordon Brown has flown into Washington for a private dinner at Camp David with US President George Bush. It marks the start of the first face-to-face talks between the two leaders since Mr Brown took over at No.10. The Prime Minister, speaking en route to the Maryland retreat went out of his way to praise the President for his "leadership in this fight against international terrorism".

And the Prime Minister was at pains to point out his own close personal ties to America, speaking of the UK and US's "shared destiny". Mr Brown's spokesman said the Prime Minister hoped the two leaders' discussions would see progress on world trade talks and ending the bloodshed in Darfur, as well as covering a wide range of issues from Iraq and Iran to climate change.

The Prime Minister and President will hold formal talks, when White House and Downing Street officials plus Foreign Secretary David Miliband and US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice will join them. The two leaders will then host a joint news conference at Camp David before Mr Brown moves on to Capitol Hill for cross party talks with leading figures from the Senate and House of Representatives.

My Son Is Innocent Says Mother

Daily Express Headline; says: 'The Mother of the only suspect in the Madeleine McCann case has hit back at claims that he lied to police.'

Jenny Murat last night refuted the allegation that her son Robert had given misleading information about his alibi. Murat swears he spent the night with his 71-year-old mother the night Madeleine was snatched, despite reports that he gave police two versions of events.

A spokesman for the family said: “Jenny has told police her son was with her on the night Madeleine vanished and she is certainly not lying.“ She knows that just because she is his mother everyone will believe she is covering up for him and lying to save him. “She has had to keep quiet about what happened and has not been allowed to speak because the police will not let her but she is furious her son has been branded a liar.

Murat, a former estate agent, is adamant he was nowhere near the McCann family apartment in the Portuguese resort of Praia da Luz at the time four-year-old Madeleine was taken on May 3. But three friends who were on holiday with her parents, Kate and Gerry, have given statements to detectives in which they claim they saw Murat outside the Ocean Club holiday complex that night. Reports said he realised he had fallen under suspicion in the days after Madeleine was kidnapped. He is said to have told friends and police, with whom he was working as a translator, that he spent the evening with his German lover Michaela Walczuch, 39, before later telling police he was with his mother the whole time.

Mrs Murat says her son never left her sight that night and that they ate together before having an early night. The family spokesman said:“According to his mother, Robert never changed his story and was in their home, Casa Liliana, the whole night. He has told police this over and over again and Jenny says her son is telling the truth."

Despite what the witnesses say, Jenny is determined to prove her son was nowhere near the apartment when they said he was. “Robert and his mother have told police they joined the hunt for Madeleine the morning after she vanished and that was the first they knew of it. Jenny knows her son did not take Madeleine but without any evidence he has been hung, drawn and quartered by the public. These accusations have ruined his mum’s life and made every day living hell for her. How can she go on with this black cloud hanging over her son?”

Front Page News Part VI

Daily Express Front Page Headline says 'Madeleine: Now Her Parent's Friends Are Hit By Hate Campaign'

Another headline to muse over and await the follow up story on the internet. In the light of recent revelations arriving after the confrontation between Murat & the Doctors Three ... if this is indeed what it relates to in some way ... it appears that all and sundry behind the news stories, and behind the blackout curtain, relating to the story, are insistent in their stance they wish the public to believe it is Robert Murat who is the liar. That is IF this headline relates to the doctors three. Otherwise this relates to something new.

But, in relation to the doctors three, they appear to have overlooked the fact that it was Robert Murat who aided them with as intrepreter the very next day after Madeleine disappeared. I must query why it took them until the day of the confrontation to let it be known Murat had 'peeped' into the flat the night before; how come their suspicions had not been raised then? Why did they not confront him the next day ... and pass forward their suspicions to the authorities instead of permitting Robert Murat to aid them in the investigation.

Somebody is truly deceiving the public with their statements relating to that night. It would be so easy to accept the suggestions that Robert Murat is involved. End of story. But the fact remains that does not feel right to me. Instinct, intuit, second sight or sixth sense ... whatever you wish to call it ... points to the fact that it isn't right to believe Robert Murat is the one who is deceiving with his statement for that night.

As for the above headline, I will wait and see what it says. However, I cannot detract from my insighted view .... it is one of the Doctors three who is the deceiving one relating to the events of that night. This boxing ring confrontation is the lynch-pin scenario of the whole case. It is the crux and it is the key. There is precious little time left to accuse Robert Murat of the 'crime' .... once that watershed has passed (it may already have) ... and he walks away rightfully innocent, then Law Enforcement no longer has a 'suspect' in the case. Pressure upon pressure is being applied on this part of the trail. A pile driver pounding over and over on the same ground. For someone this is the cause of a real headache. It is stalemate in the 'game'. The intention to charge Murat has not gone as planned. So who then can they place the tag of 'suspect' on ... if they cannot make the accusation stick?

St Anne

Saint Anne (also Ann or Anna) was the mother of The Virgin Mary. Her name Anne is a Greek rendering of a Hebrew name, Hannah. According to the non-canonical Gospel of James, Anne and her husband Joachim, after years of childlessness, were visited by an angel who told them that they would conceive a child. Anne promised to dedicate the child to God's service. Joachim and Anne are believed to have given Mary to the service of the Second Temple when the girl was three years old. Anne is a patron saint of Quebec and Brittany. (Wikipedia)

More Kabbalah Insights

The Kabbalah is a system of mysticism which originated in ancient Sumer, thus putting its beginnings in the same remote epoch as the mysteries of Egypt and the Hindu Vedas. Babylon succeeded Sumer.

The word "Kabbalah" comes from a Hebrew root meaning to receive sacred teachings. In order to receive, that teaching has to pre-exist somewhere already.The Jewish mystics added two important works to Kabbalistic lore, namely the books known as the Sepher Yetzirah, reputed to have been written in the 2nd century AD, and the Zohar, dating from the 13th century. The Zohar came to the attention of Christian scholars shortly thereafter, and sparked an interest in the Kabbalah on the part of a wide range of European mystics and occultists.

Thus the Kabbalah became part and parcel of the secret teachings of such groups as the Rosicrucians and Freemasons. These Gentile Kabbalists likewise added much fresh material to the tradition, as did the Theosophists, the Golden Dawn, and now numerous new age thinkers and writers. Thus the Kabbalah as it now exists is far from being an exclusively Jewish doctrine, but is rather an integral part of the Western Mystery Tradition.

An essential teaching of the Kabbalah is that the same patterns that govern the operation of the universe are to be found in the deepest soul of man, as well as the forces that drive those patterns.
