if it is not a love poem,
it is not a poem;
if it not love,
it is not poetry.

love is the only language,
the only communication;
love is only the reality,
the only true life.

words cannot express
what the heart truly intends;
song cannot express
how the soul truly delights.

poems are a poor facsimile
of longing for God
but like a lock of golden hair
tied with a ribbon,
they remind of the truth
no words can convey.

Bless The World!

I have no intention of turning this newsletter into a vehicle for political activism. I have always believed that the political climate of the country, of the world, is merely ~ for lack of a better term ~ a symptom of the spiritual condition of the world. If you truly want to have a positive effect on the planet, work spiritually ~ always work spiritually first. (If you have not read the blesstheworld.com home page, go there now.)

That being said, it is time to treat some symptoms.

Posters for Peace On Earth Day 2006 are available at blesstheworld.com. Click on the peace sign for simple instructions.

Write your representatives to the Federal Government demanding all American soldiers be returned to American soil by April 2006 ~ in time to celebrate Earth Day and plant a tree at home.

Forward this newsletter to everyone you know so they can print the peace posters and spread the word.

Symptom of Conservatism

I am not a "conservative" and I am not a "liberal" ~ I am a "spiritual humanist". I do not believe in the "greater good"; I believe in the "greater karma".

With the imbalance of conservatism in the world, the greater karma of the planet can be seen as de- progressing ~ what I mean is that the spiritual evolution of the planet is not advancing as quickly as mystics had hoped. Many of us had looked at this issue leading to the summit of the year 2012 (grand spiritual awakening) with rose-colored glasses on our third eyes!!! But the world has not necessarily followed the vision. Our own United States presidential election is a perfect example (please note: I am not saying the results of the election were good or bad ~ water seeks its own level ~ I am saying that what we have in the physical world represents where we are in the spiritual world. If you want a different government, work spiritually for a different world).

The symptom of conservatism can be seen all over the planet right now, but one profound example breaks my heart.

On November 13, 2005, two men ~ aged 24 and 25 ~ were hanged by the neck in a public square until dead for the crime of engaging in a consenting homosexual act. On July 19th, two teenagers ~ aged 17 and 18 ~ were hanged for the same crime. These executions occurred in Iran as part of the legal system and in full support of the government. In fact, the government and ruling class of the country boasted of the executions.

The United States does have economic sanctions against Iran but they are flimsy. "Persian" money is strong and active in the United States. I advocate a complete embargo of Iran ~ not for political reasons, but spiritual reasons. There can be no fence-sitting in the spiritual world ~ either you accept behavior of flagrant inhumanity or you do not. If you sat down to dinner with someone who held such disregard for humanity in his heart, would you digest your food? Whom do you want your country to sit down to dinner with? (See blesstheworld.com October 2002 newsletter .)

Conservatism is greatly imbalanced in the world right now because of a predominance of fear. Work on releasing your own emotional constraints to help the planet achieve balance.

Karma Release

I have spoken repeatedly about working for peace on Earth. I have written almost every month this year on the spiritual treatment for conflict. I have dropped the ball on the spiritual playing field ~ it is up to you to kick it. Working for world peace will remove the karma of conflict from your soul. Think about that! Working for world peace will remove the karma of conflict from your soul. Do something now!

Grace and Peace and Joy

This remedy opens your life to the greatest qualities of grace and peace and joy in the world. It makes of your life a deep meditation that spreads itself to the edges of the universe. Use this remedy when you are finally serious about turning your life over to God.

E-motion Potion

Incomplete expression of any emotion results in physical-life and spiritual-life inertia. The three basic negative emotions (fear/anxiety, anger/resentment, grief/disappointment) initiate this inertia.

blessthebody.com E- motion Potion stimulates the emotional body to release suppressed experiences liberating the psyche by completion of their expression. Depending upon your karma, not all experiences must be worked out overtly.

This is an important remedy for anyone undergoing psychological counseling, 12-step therapy, or any regression work. It is also important for people evolving from child abuse, both physical and emotional. But do not think this is a remedy for extreme cases - it can act with subtlety when subtlety is required.

It is common that people experience an "un- winding" - an emotional process which begins with depression, then moves into hostility, then nervousness - as a way of rooting out the origin of the problem. Do not be alarmed; it is a natural process to your clearer self. Combine with blessthebody.com First Aid if the emotional process becomes too overwhelming.

Ritual Candles

blesstheworld.com has a full supply of Ritual Candles. Use these as your constant treatment for conflict, burning in the southeast sector of your home until the end of the Chinese year.

Fire is one of the basic elements/building blocks of the universe and the use of fire in real magic and ritual dates back to pre-history. Fire is symbolic of cleansing/preparation, completion/re-birth, and devotion. It is used as a continuous, daily, and occasional element in feng shui, magic, and rituals both conventional and esoteric the world over.

Be sure all candles say "100% beeswax, soy or vegetable wax" - otherwise they pollute the environment and contribute to serious health problems such as brain tumors, lung cancer, miscarriage/abortion. Never burn regular candles in the home of a child with asthma/allergies.

blessthehome.com Ritual Candles are 100% white soybean wax and unscented for the very sensitive.

blessthehome.com Feng Shui Candles are 100% red crystalline vegie-soy wax with intoxicating aroma.

All candles are completely natural (wax, color, aroma) with cotton wicks and are prepared in recyclable glass for your safety and peace-of-mind.

To enhance fire blessings, always hold a specific intention in your mind and heart while lighting the candle.

May grace and peace and joy reign on Earth.

Happy Holiday from blesstheworld.com.
