Obedience is not a value to me at all, neither is disobedience a disvalue. Your own understanding is the value. Out of that, obedience is good; out of that, disobedience is also good. Morality does not disappear, but acquires a totally different meaning… Language provides numerous terms to pinpoint [the traditional] type of morality: loyalty, duty, discipline, obedience… Great words! They can drive you into an unconscious, robotlike behavior. This is now the greatest danger to human survival: the capacity for man to abandon his humanity; indeed, the inevitability that he does so as he merges his unique personality into larger institutional structures. It is not anger, violence, aggression, destructiveness, which is so dangerous, but the greatly valued idea of obedience… Remember, if we want to create a new humanity, we will have to reconsider the whole mind of man. The past has created a very ugly mind – of course, with beautiful labels, with beautiful painted smiles, and behind is great animality. My emphasis is on the individual – not on the society, not on the nation, not on the religion… The individual has to be freed from all kinds of social bondages and slaveries… Become aware…and out of your awareness, obedience is good, disobedience is good. But it has to be rooted in your awareness – then everything is good. And out of unawareness, obedience is bad, disobedience is bad. Osho, Philosophia Perennis, Vol. I, Chapter 3

The Egyptians report of Isis that she was the inventor of many remedies and very knowledgeable in medicine. Therefore her greatest joy, even now after she had become immortal, was still to make people well, and to those who implored her she explained remedies in their dream, clearly revealing her presence to every petitioner needing help.

“Now if you know somebody who’s not feeling quite tip-top in their physicality, it is not to berate them, it is not to give them a hard time. ‘Oh, what are you doing taking that, ‘don’t you know, blah, blah, blah.’ No, no, no, it is to simply say, ‘Here’s some Love; open your Heart if you choose to receive it. It will help you to lighten up, it will help you through this Ascension Preparation,’ and I will remind you that there is no dis-easement, or impairment, or disability when you ascend.

With all of this said, my “Oracle” concurs with Nostradamus’ astrological window for war with Iran. The big war is not happening in 2012. Look to the years 2015 and 2016.

“I am now experiencing perfect health, abundant prosperity and complete and utter happiness. This is true because the world is full of charming people who now lovingly help me in every way. I am now coming into an innumerable company of angels. I am now living a delightful, interesting and satisfying life of the most widely useful kind. Because of of my own increased health, wealth and happiness. I am now able to help others live a delightful, interesting and satisfying life of the most widely useful kind, my good -- our good -- is universal.” “I am now activated by Divine Love and guided by divine power into my right work, which I perform in a perfect way for perfect pay. The divine plan of my life now takes shape in definite concrete experiences, leading to perfect health, happiness, success and prosperity.” “Divine intelligence is in charge of my life. I am now open, receptive, and obedient to its rich instruction and guidance.” This next one is one I use to say all the time and it really did make the difference. It is something I am saying over and over again right now, due to my own personal situations that I have to deal with at this time. “This situation does not dismay me. God is with me to uphold and sustain me, and to make all things right. I trust everything in my life to the tender care of the Father. I know his will for me is health, happiness, prosperity, spiritual unfoldment and all that is good.” “Nothing but good can come into my life, for God is in charge.”

The Science of Mudra (the Praying Hands) Access To Creation Through Body Circuits During Prayer Have you ever wondered about the significance of the praying hands pose? In his book Awakening To Zero Point, Gregg Braden tells us that within the hands we have layers of circuitry which connect the primary vortex points of our chakras to various portions of our body, both internal organs and “contact points” located on the surface of the skin. In eastern medicine, these pathways of current are referred to as meridians or ley lines. It is along these meridian lines that precise contact points are identified and used in the ancient sciences of acupressure and acupuncture along with other energy treatment modalities such as Through Field Therapy, Emotional Freedom Technique and Quantum Soul Alignment Technique. Intersection points (acupoints) may be stimulated to support specific nerve centers. The Science of Mudra is based on the knowledge of techniques used to access the chakra vortexes points through the meridians. In the Eastern texts one aspect of this science is developed through the connecting of body circuits in various combinations, to produce specific voltages within the body, and the associated frequencies. In the fleshy tip of each finger is an electrical contact point providing direct access into a chakra zone through one or more meridians. Each fingertip is associated with one primary chakra, although it may also have a secondary access to other chakras. When we hold our hands in the prayer position, the hands are placed in a special position to communicate with God, the Creator. The Mudra of prayer is that of the hands facing one another in front of the body, fingers extended with the tips and palms touching one another. The use of this Mudra is very common throughout the world, and is taught as the preferred form of prayer within the Christian traditions of the West. What is not realized by most of us however is the reason for the Mudra. Each of the fingertips through touching those of the opposite hand completes the circuits and provides access to the associated chakra zones and grids of the body simultaneously. The net effect is enhanced through the contact of the large chakras located within the center of each hand, the palm chakras. It is through these access points, the fingertips and palm chakras that energy-information-light is directed to other parts of the body. For many, these techniques are almost instinctual, as they mirror a “knowing” from another aspect of their being. Through the science of Mudra, prayer may become an intentional process of acknowledging a “oneness” with creation. (I just had to share this because I love the description of why we use the prayer pose.)

We've survived many catastrophes. According to legends, we people are in our fifth creation -- destroyed four times before. Each time it has been the Shapeshifter -- what you might call `sorcerer' or `prophet' -- who led us out of the abyss." --Vieja Itza, Mayan healer-shaman
The shamans believe that we are one with everything, including the mountains, the trees, and the jaguars. Therefore, if we are to look at the idea of true peace we must look at a much bigger concept than human existence. We must look for peace in all things.
If we only talk about peace among humans, then we are not truly talking about peace. If peace among humans means increasing populations and increasing wealth and misuse of the world's resources, then that spells disaster among the creatures of the sea, the plants and trees of the forest, the insects, and all other life forms on this earth. In the eyes of the shaman, "other life forms" also includes the lakes, the rivers, the oceans, the mountains, and the rocks.
"What will it take, your Holiness, for us to have peace?" And he said, "Well, you know, we cannot have peace until we have taken action that reflects our compassion, and our willingness to take responsibility." He said further, "Peace can only come from taking responsibility for all forms of life...all sentient beings, including the insects."
"The world is as you dream it, " he said at last. "Your people dreamed of huge factories, tall buildings, as many cars as there are raindrops in this river. Now you begin to see that your dream is a nightmare." He bent to pick up a stone. "The problem is your country is like this pebble." He threw it far out into the river. "Everything you do ripples across the Mother. -- Numi, Shuar Shaman
"You have lost touch with the Mother," he said. He stood up, held out his arms, and turned in a slow circle. He clenched his hands into fists and drew them to his heart. "Now it begins to hurt." "Yes." Incidents from my own life came to mind. "I sometimes think that all we care about is money and dominating things. Other people, other countries. Nature. That we've lost the ability to love." His eyes met mine, a stern look. "You haven't lost the ability." -- Numi, Shuar Shaman
"How can I change, Don Alberto? How can my people change this terrible situation we've created?" "That's simple," he replied. "All you have to do is change the dream." It sounded so easy. "How long will it take?" He glanced once more down the river. "It can be accomplished in a generation. You need only plant a different seed, teach your children to dream new dreams." --Numi, Shuar Shaman

Duck's Wisdom Includes: Grace on water Water energy Seeing clearly through emotions Spirit helper of mystics and seers
Celtic Duck: Ducks, along with geese (see entry below) share the same symbolism of transition due to their migratory nature. Ducks are also a Celtic animal symbol of honesty, simplicity and resourcefulness. Ducks also represent sensitivity, as they tend to be very sensitive to their surroundings. Also viewed as graceful and agile – particularly in the water, ducks are respected for their beauty and adaptation to nature.
Geese were common sights in the lush green lands of Ireland, and their migration was duly noted by the ever-observant Celts. Consequently, among Celtic animals, the Goose deals with our own migratory or transitory nature. The sign of the goose urges us to consider our changes of mood and heart. The Celts understood that oneness in thought leads to oneness in deed, so invoking the goose aids in our ability to understand why we have such changes of thought, and what we can do to ground our thoughts so that our actions aren't "willy-nilly." Furthermore, the goose is also a strong symbol of hearth and home. Always returning to the same spot each spring, the goose was recognized for it's incredibly navigational devised, and identified for it's keen sense of return to home. Celts being fierce patriots, the sign of the goose was a strong symbol of the importance of home. Likely, the goose was a common symbol in the home, displayed to encourage the safe return home of Celtic warriors. More about goose symbolism here.
