A New Beginning – No More Gloom

First, before we go any further, the journal in this book (post) is not like my beginning journal, for I was in confusion, so my poetry and thoughts were scattered.  Many times I have gone back through my own poetry ledger to redo it.  Each poem here was placed where it is best for  you  to start, and stay on your journey, within your thoughts.  It is with each poem to assist you to begin a process that helps you reach in and connect with your feelings, by writing them down.  Then you can refer back to our journey, as you grow and move through your life.

Secondly, everyone feels some despair at some point or another.  Things do not always go the way we want.  There are times we need to remove ourselves from every day life,  and give ourselves permission, to go within to realize what we truly desire.  It is through connecting with our soul that we can make a difference, and completely change our world, by changing ones point of view.  From that of questioning things around me to that of knowing through love and feelings what is.  So by taking the time to write it in your journal you achieve this end.

Finally, do make sure you will not be disturbed.  Turn off our phone, the TV and the radio, and find that perfect place to read and write.  Make sure a pen or pencil is close by.  This is your own personal journal.  Keep it close by, sacred, secret and secure.

No More Gloom

Inside a room you cannot see, there is no place to comfort me.
No place to live a bitter life.
Nor place to have all kinds of strife.
This is no place to feel despair.
It’s not a place to cut and tear.
Inside a room you cannot see, is my place to gently be.

Inside a mind you cannot see, there’s no real thoughts to comfort me.
No thoughts about a bitter life.
Nor thoughts about all kinds of strife.
There are no thoughts about despair.
You won’t find thoughts that cut and tear.
Inside a mind you cannot see, are just thoughts that carry me.

Inside a poem that you can see, are not just words to comfort thee.
Mere words about a bitter life.
Nor words about all kinds of strife.
There are no words about despair.  You won’t find words that cut and tear.
Inside a poem that you can see, flow forth words to uplift thee.

‘How to Feel’ Preface

Knowledge has two facets.  There is knowledge about basic stuff in life. For a child, it was how to tie your shoe or ride a bicycle.  For an adult it’s how to drive a car or get a job.  Then there is another kind of knowledge.  The kind we start learning as a baby, but we have no teacher, for we learn this knowledge by experiencing it.

So, this book (collection of posts) is not really going to tell you anything that you don’t already know.  Yet, it will lead you hopefully, to a soulful experience.  One, you can write (and post) about and remember, so that you will never forget.  Begin, by taking a deep breath, hold then release.  Then turn the page (read my next post).  It is time to begin this inward adventure by knowing how to start.

Rest in Peace, Little Phychic Sister!

Pictured with her firstborn daughter, Vennessa Chow, 1980.

Karen Lee Chow, devoted mother and poet of Rainier, Washington, died on November 25, 2017 at the age of 62 after suffering from Anaplastic Thyroid Cancer (ATC) diagnosed just this past July.  This is a very aggressive type of cancer always considered Stage IV.

Karen is survived by her husband, Jeff Chow; her children, Vennessa, Kimberly, Matthew, and Cassandra Chow; her grandchild; Mei Lynn Belle Lotus; and her siblings, Wendy Candela (Roberts) of Maryland, Dorrie Leukhardt (Roberts)(Uber) of California, Craig Roberts, and Robin Roberts, both of Hawaii.  She is also survived by eight nephews and nieces, Cyndie Billings (Uber), John Uber, Christina Neve, Robin Roberts, Jr, Cameron Roberts, Cherie Murashige (Roberts), Michael Candela, and Rachel Candela; and six great nieces and nephews along with numerous cousins.

Karen is predeceased by her parents; Lt Col Louis A. Roberts, Jr. USAF Retired, and her mother, Doris E. Roberts, PhD (Metaphysics).

Karen Lee was born in San Diego, California on April 25, 1955 and raised her family in Rainier, Washington since the 1990’s.

She grew up as a military dependent and has lived all over the country from Kansas (Forbes AFB) to Laramie, Wyoming, then on to Rome, New York, San Diego, California, Arlington, Virginia (Pentagon), and finally Kailua, Hawaii (Hickam AFB) graduating from Kailua High School in 1974.  As an adult, in the late 1970’s she moved back to San Diego to live with her sisters, then on to Los Angeles where she met and married her husband, Jeff Chow.  As their family grew with their first daughter, Vennessa born in 1979, they moved to Washington state and bought a country home in Rainier.   Jeff is a renowned Chinese Chef, working out of restaurants in both Seattle and Takoma, commuting home at every opportunity to be with Karen and their family.

As a full-time mother, artist, and poet, Karen Lee was a very special person in many ways.  She wrote a journal book of poetry called “How to Feel – Take a Special Spiritual Journey into Thoughts and Feelings” published in 2002 by 1stBooks Library.  In 1986, she had taken a journey of soul and spirit.  Karen went nowhere, yet went everywhere her thoughts could travel.  She expanded her mind with understanding and climbed into the depths of feeling.  With her book, she wanted to touch others in the same way.  Karen didn’t expect everyone to agree with what she had found in the deep recess of her heart, her soul, but she hoped others would hear her out and take their own journey with her.  People, who she only knew online, read her newsletter saying much about her wit, her wisdom, and her poems.   In addition, this book was a family affair to include contributions and illustrations created by her daughters at ages 14, 10, and 23, edited by her mother (Dr. Dris), and with a credit to her son, Matthew Chow, for the idea of her poem, “No More Gloom”.

There is a special place in her loving family’s heart and in Rainier, Washington, where a beautiful tree is planted in her memory.

A Personal Interview series with D. Paine Roberts, Msc.D., Ph.D.

Phenomena Philosophy

IN YOUR STUDIES OF THE PHILOSOPHY OF PHENOMENA, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IMPRESSED YOU THE MOST?

DR:  I think I must say that is the realization of the power of Unconditional Love.

WHY WAS THAT THE ONE OUT OF SO MANY?

DR:  As a young child growing up in a world of family, friends and interests, it was amazing that no matter what was going on in my life, I was also always looking for a reason for everything that was happening to me.  I was told that I was loved, but what did that mean?  I didn’t get much attention for I had a baby brother that seemed to take it all. Besides that, I was very quiet and very sensitive and remembered things that did not appear to be real in the actual world around me.  “What am I doing here?” I often asked myself. I wanted to have more answers or reasons than what were given to me.

DID YOUR SURROUNDINGS CHANGE MUCH AS YOU GREW OLDER?

DR: As I matured sooner than most because of the trying times in my family’s life, I found myself wanting to know more about what I was supposed to be doing with my life.  It had to be more than the suffering and pain that was going on all around me at that time of my life.

Fortunately, I had a very creative imagination in the darkness of the night as I lay in my bed unable to sleep. Even when in a movie theatre in my early years watching some inspiring film on the big screen in front of me I found myself yearning to understand and know more than anything in the world what true love really was. Was it what I saw on the screen or read in the romantic books in the library?  What my mother said it was, felt more like sacrifice and suffering than joy and happiness.

HOW DID YOU OVERCOME THIS DILEMMA AT SUCH AN EARLY AGE?

DR:  I tried not to think that love was my life’s mission. I would continually remind myself that it couldn’t be so simple. Everyone knows what love is, but to me it had to be something much more meaningful. There had to be in there somewhere 1) a selfless way to serve Humanity, 2) or a way of life that had Spiritual Meaning, and 3) a Special Family Unit where family members truly cared for each other and always celebrated life’s ups and downs together surrounded by unconditional love. I truly desired to know what I was really doing here. I realize now that I had a very deep need to understand what common life was all about.  Nothing about my surroundings made any sense to me as a child. I felt I was different from everyone around me.  I did not feel that I belonged where I was and I didn’t fit in very well. I had an awareness that went beyond the usual and I often felt lost in my surroundings. What was I doing here.

When I questioned the way things were, because I felt I was unfairly being picked on, I was often asked in frustration by my own mother, “Who do you think you are?  The Queen of England?”

As I grew I eventually felt I had to give up that inner need to understand to finally realize just what my mission was this lifetime.  As I looked back on it all, it appears to be all about Unconditional Love. I eventually came to the realization that Love is the glue that keeps us in the “here and now” so that our souls can grow and expand with our ever expanding Universal Loving Awareness. 

(To be continued….)

Upcoming Peace Portal

The Peace Portal will offer an unique opportunity to transform the tension of Uranus/Pluto square (intensified on that day with Jupiter and Venus into a cardinal cross) with the harmonizing effects of the grand sextile. This means that all deeply rooted conflicts on the surface of the planet can begin to finally begin resolving if the critical mass of 144,000 people activating this portal is achieved.

We have set a goal to reach masses of people, so that the critical mass of people actually doing this is attained. Please post it on your websites and blogs.

Scientific studies have confirmed positive effects of mass meditations on human society, so each of you that will participate in this meditation can actually save human lives.

We are all doing this activation at 11 hours 11 minutes pm Cairo time on August 25th. This equals 11:11 pm in Central Europe, 10:11 pm in UK, 5:11 pm EDT, 4:11 pm CDT, 3:11 MDT and 2:11 PDT. For other locations and other time zones, you can reference a World Clock to get the time in your area.

Instructions:

1. Relax your mind and body by watching your breath for a few minutes

2. Visualize a pillar of electric blue Light, coming from the Galactic Central Sun and then descending down through your body

3. Visualize that Light flowing through your heart and then through your hands directly into the Syria conflict, the Egypt liberation process, prison camps of North Korea and all other unresolved situations on the planet, filling them with Light and eliminating all darkness which exists there.

4. Ask the Goddess presence (divine feminine) to come through your body

5. Ask that Goddess presence to direct energies of peace and harmony to all those unresolved situations and everyone involved in them. Allow that energy to flow through your heart and then through your hands into those situations for a few minutes.

The Goddess wants peace and freedom so peace and freedom will come.  Dr. Dris would have attended, and likely, gathered as many as she could.  May your angel be with you!

More on Spiritual Sophistication

Has love taken a back seat?  It certainly has no direction and no purpose for many of us.  We usually take love for granted if we feel it at all in present day life. We talk about our conscious decisions and unconscious habits, or even our conscious egos and our unconscious motivations, believing they try to run and rule our lives.  But are we sure we know what we mean when we say these things?  While there are many of us who believe in consciousness as a very special genuine thing like love or gold, we are also being advised that it may all be an illusion, that none of it is real.

 

*********************************************** 

C. Dennett in his book, Consciousness Explained, (1991:23), contended that in this (today’s) conscious awareness, we limit ourselves to not having the thrilling, devastating, or energizing experiences of love that our ancestors had. Therefore somehow we feel a sense of loss, of something missing from our lives. And most of us are not sure just what is missing.

Perhaps he was right. Do the majority of us in or out of any type of relationship (including the three mentioned) feel incomplete, for the dominating shadow side of our minds say that life is neither as fulfilling nor satisfying as it once was?

Dennett also states that, “consciousness like love and money is a phenomenon that does indeed depend to a surprising extent on its associated concepts.  Although, like love, it has an elaborate biological base; like money, some of its most significant features are borne along on the culture, not simply inherent, somehow, in the physical structure of its instances.”

If Dennett is right, if we have succeeded in overthrowing some of our basic cultural concepts, will the phenomena of consciousness be threatened with extinction completely?  And if it goes, will love and money also go along with it?  What is a phenomenon anyway?  Can we handle it whatever it appears to be?

Our human ability to conceptualize consciousness is what creates and dissipates life, as we know it now.  If this concept of our own consciousness were to fall into the hands of our dispassionate scientific community only and totally out of the realm of creative spiritual passionate fulfillment, what happens to unconditional love and free will?

If we were to reduce life to be merely a matter of motion, what happens to our appreciation of love and growing pains as well as dreams and the joy of living life to the fullest?  What about compassion, which requires both mind and heart (reason and emotion)?  In what other form can human passion truly exist?
