Our property on the Bay of Quinte is home to several species of native trees. In one area we call the glen, we’ve been witnessing an ongoing onslaught by invasive insects. Over a period of three to four years we watched helplessly as the ash trees slowly lost their battles to the Ash Borer Beetle. It bores pencil holes into the bark, then tunnels under it, robbing the trees of vital sap. Simultaneous attacks by tent caterpillars forced the trees to leaf out twice in the same season depleting their reserves.

The first tree to come down was a 60 foot specimen that was still mostly alive when we felled it. It came down with a heavy thud that shook the little glen, and sent my son and me running for cover.  We bucked the branches and left the trunk for another day.

Three nights later I awoke around 4:30 AM for a bathroom visit, and became wide awake afterwards. Since it was a mild October night, I put on my bathrobe and slippers in the dark, and decided to walk down to the glen to make a rare, early morning meditation.

As I descended into the glen I hit something. I had forgotten about the felled tree laying in the middle of the very dark glen. Even though my eyes were dark adapted, I did not see the branches lying on the ground until I walked into them. As I peered into the darkness before me, my eyes took in a faint ribbon of light stretching away from me for many feet into the night’s darkness. I had to take a few steps back to catch my breath and regain my balance.

Puzzled, I walked back up to the rim of the glen from where I could see that there were no patches of low-lying fog forming anywhere down in the glen. The night sky above was clear and starlit, and I could not see any sky shine from other ground sources. I gave the long sliver of glowing light a wide berth so as not to disturb it, as I walked around to approach it from another angle to see if I could discover its source and extent.  This time as I got closer, I could make out a soft grey-blue  glow hovering over the full length of the carcass of the tree. As my mind took in the significance of the scene my head dropped intuitively out of respect for what I knew in my heart was a lifeforce leaving the dying tree. I said some words of regret, and my body started to shake with excitement or cold, as I sat in quiet wonder.   

The glow disappeared as the morning light entered the glen. I rushed to the house to investigate the strange light on-line.  My cursory research suggested that the grey-blue glow fit the pattern for bioluminescence from decaying organic matter. The common name is Foxfire or Will ‘o the Wisp, and it was documented long ago. The usual sources are decaying matter and fungi, and the glow is so faint that it can only be observed if your eyes have been dark adapted. Apparently, the light is produced by a pair of special enzymes present in decaying matter which react with each other to release biophotons of soft light. After discussing the tree’s eerie glow with an experienced woodsmen and chemist, I chose the simple explanation that the light I had observed that morning came from rotting sawdust created under the ash bark by destructive beetle activity.

A few days later I started to dissect the trunk for firewood, and I noticed how thick the bark was, and how little actual sawdust had been produced by the beetle invaders. The amount of sawdust under the bark was trivial, and it just didn’t seem possible that so little organic matter could produce all the light that I had observed. In addition, the bark was so thick that it would surely absorb all the light photons completely. More compelling, was the sudden realization that the rest of the ash trees that were still standing were equally infected, but they did not give off any visible light emissions on that night. As the realization sank in; that the eerie glow over the dying ash tree was most likely its life force or spirit leaving the dying carcass, it sent a chill up my spine.

I consulted some of the top forestry research and management experts in Canada, who ruled out an explosion of the Armillaria fungus, that glows in the dark forest, and can spread over large areas of forest floor and acts as a communication system for trees. It became clear that the unusual glow could not be explained satisfactorily by natural processes. I reviewed my personal impressions as I witnessed the event, keeping in mind that my human presence in the glen could have perturbed the natural electromagnetic field energies present on that morning. The physical evidence I observed that morning informed me (mentally and spiritually) that spirits live  in trees. Why is there no documentation of this anywhere? Can only autistic eyes discern spirits and things that glow in the night? Now I see trees differently. Wherever there are trees, there is abundant life. They’re like living fasteners that connect the sky with the earth. Because they live in both worlds, they act as a conduit of communication between them.  

FMRI studies reveal that consciousness is still measurably present after the brain/body has died, telling us that consciousness is not the result of biological processes. Science supports the theory that trees have intelligence, because trees have been observed to mount organized defences against a deadly threat like invading insects. Planning and strategizing require creative thought.

When the rest of the ash group is felled this spring, they will hopefully provide more opportunities to study this undocumented phenomenon, perhaps with a night vision camera.

Shamanic and other spiritual cultures around the world honour and use sacred trees as: portals or gateways to hidden worlds, sources of wisdom, and even wish fulfillment. To name just a few, the Mohawks of North America honour the cedar as the sacred tree of life. The Caribe natives honour the ceiba tree, and West African’s have spiritual relationships with the iroko tree.

The visible light emissions coming from the ash tree trunk 3 days after it was cut down, proved to me with high confidence that trees have a spiritual nature that gives them life, and it can be observed and possibly documented under the right conditions.

Just Go With The Flow Joe…

Back from my rewarding sojourn into the sticky world of making maple syrup…...Maple tree science is the sweetest! Not only do I get to study the ubiquitous life force which may be present in maple sap, but at the end I get to consume the samples I collected.  Nothing tastes better on a cold spring morning than a generous dose of nutritious Canadian maple syrup drizzled over hot buttered Belgian waffles, topped with plump blueberries.

Experimental Equipment

The LM4 meter is an Experimental Life Energy meter which I’m using to measure the life force in various environmental samples. It is a solid state version of the model designed by pioneer orgone investigator Wilhelm Reich, about a century ago, and recommended by the Orgone Biophysical Research Lab in Oregon.  There is no easily available “life standard” to calibrate this meter, consequently it cannot provide absolute values, only relative levels.  Constructed as a field instrument, it does not provide the same level of accuracy as a bench top lab instrument. For purposes of this simple experiment, we’ll assume that the meter’s detector is sensitive to, and responds only to a specific life energy arising from the presence of blue bions.  Survey results have been promising and reproducible.

Preliminary Research Results

SPIRIT-MATTER-ENERGY….Can we track the change in energy as a water droplet makes its journey from spirit to matter, and back again!

A droplet of water is born when a tiny particle of dust or pollen that has been blown up into clouds high above the earth, attracts water vapour which condenses around it.  At this height, the molecules are so far apart that the densities are light enough to be nearly ethereal or spiritual. As the droplet falls in a downward spiral, it captures blue bions in the atmosphere, and it continues to descend into the more dense layers of earth, until eventually it finds itself surrounded by heavy matter underground.  The original droplet grew, and was forced to split into several more fractals of itself as it descended, before its journey ended in solid matter. Is it still the same droplet at the end of its journey? It is noteworthy, that humans are mostly water.

In order to detect the life force in various sources, I began with rain water. Rain water captures atmospheric bions at high altitudes as it falls, and if it is collected before it touches ground, it will only contain atmospheric energy.  I use this measured value as the background level or baseline, and then compared samples from other environmental sources, to get “a relative indication”, not an absolute value, of the life force present.  In each case, simple filtration was used to eliminate debris.

Sample volumes used for measurements were 100 mls. Measurements were made daily, and averaged over one week for accuracy and stability. Values are given as a percentage of full scale.

Rain water – the primary and cleanest source...…47%

Snow melt  - from the top layer of snow…………..48.5%

Creek water – snowmelt [from farmers fields]…....54.5%

Well water – true groundwater from deep well…...56%

Maple Sap – Sugar Maples …………………….….61.5%



  1. The apparent difference between the original Rain water and Well water is 9% [ 56%-47%]. In simple terms, I believe this difference represents the total accumulation of blue bions by water droplets as they journeyed from clouds [spirit], to underground [matter].
  2. The total difference between Rain water and Maple Sap is 14.5%. The higher concentration of blue bions in Maple Sap is probably due to blue bions collected from the tree itself which is constructed like a good accumulator of orgone energy.
  3. The difference between Well water and Maple Sap is 5.5%. This seems to represent the tree’s contribution to the total lifeforce energy found in its sap, ie: 5.5% of the reading is contributed by the maple tree itself.

THE MAPLE SAP IS RUNNING -  so time for a break from blogging.


The theory of “ground based orgone energy” that I’m working on, suggests that the lifeforce that normally moves on the land returns to ground in the fall, where it becomes regenerated in the dark womb of the earth over winter, to emerge from the ground in the spring as the new spring energy that supports the life cycle throughout the summer.  I believe that this process works through trees, who act as conduits and pumps to move orgone energy across the landscape.

I started collecting maple sap to measure the rise of spring energy.  The level of blue bions in maple sap could be an indicator of the local health of the planet, not unlike examining a blood sample. I acquired an experimental life meter from Dr. James De Meo at the Orgone Biophysical Research Lab in Seattle, and I hope to conduct surveys of various materials that could contain blue bions [orgone energy].

Nutritional Value of Maple Sap

Maple sap is mostly groundwater containing bions, and drawn through the tree trunk, where it dissolves any nutrients produced by and stored in the tree.  It ends up containing sucrose, as well as: minerals like potassium and zinc, calcium and manganese, for bone health. It contains oligosaccharides, amino acids, organic acids, and phenolic compounds, as well as 46 unique bio-active compounds, some of which have antioxidant properties. The plant derived compounds, such as phenolics, have immense biological effects and potential human health benefits. The mix of vitamins, nutrients, and polyphenols may even be useful in promoting thyroid and bone health along with a diabetic preventive diet.


My sampling method collects small volumes of sap. Large scale production methods often attach 2-4 buckets per tree, or tubing lines that carry sap to a central collection vat.  



After filtering the sap to remove debris and bugs, I will measure sap samples from various trees beginning with maples, since they are early producers.

And as I take my break from blogging, I leave one of my favourite songs by one of America's great spiritual leaders, John Denver.


Sweet Surrender

Lost and alone on some forgotten highway
Traveled by many, remembered by few
Lookin' for something that I can believe in
Lookin' for something that I'd like to do with my life
There's nothin' behind me and nothin' that ties me to
Something that might have been true yesterday
Tomorrow is open, right now it seems to be more than enough
To just be here today, and I don't know
What the future is holdin' in store
I don't know where I'm goin' I'm not sure where I've been
There's a spirit that guides me, a light that shines for me
My life is worth the livin', I don't need to see the end
Sweet, sweet surrender, live, live without care
Like a fish in the water, like a bird in the air
Sweet, sweet surrender, live, live without care
Like a fish in the water, like a bird in the air
Lost and alone on some forgotten highway
Traveled by many, remembered by few
Lookin' for something that I can believe in
Lookin' for something that I'd like to do with my life
There's nothin' behind me and nothin' that ties me to
Something that might have been true yesterday
Tomorrow is open, right now it seems to be more than enough
Just be here today, and I don't know
What the future is holdin' in store
I don't know where I'm goin' I'm not sure where I've been
There's a spirit that guides me, a light that shines for me
My life is worth the livin', I don't need to see the end
Sweet, sweet surrender, live, live without care
Like a fish in the water, like a bird in the air
Sweet, sweet surrender, live, live without care
Like a fish in the water, like a bird in the air
Sweet, sweet surrender, live, live without care
Like a fish in the water, like a bird in the air
Sweet, sweet surrender, live, live without care
Like a fish in the water, like a bird in the air
Sweet, sweet surrender, live, live without care
Like a fish in the water, like a bird in the air
Sweet, sweet surrender, live, live without care

As I work through new  archeological information surfacing from ancient landfill sites in the Middle East that tell the real story of Israel and Judah, I'm suddenly reminded of my mother's warning, that if I continue to walk with my head down looking at the ground all the time, I would grow up to be nothing but a garbage man. And here I am, sifting through historic spiritual garbage left behind by Cannanites, Israelites, and Judahites, to sort out the truth about what really happened in the Levant thousands of years ago.

Note to mom: I discovered long ago, and rediscovered more recently, that there is more truth in garbage than in all the temples and churches of the world. The most beautiful [spiritual] lotus rises from a swamp, not a holy water or baptismal font.

Renown Israeli archeologist Israel Finkelstein, and Belgian archeologist Neil Silberman, have uncovered a number of substantive facts from their digs in the Middle East, to turn the official Israeli narrative about Yahweh's popularity and support as a complete fiction written largely by one of Yahweh's priests named Ezra in an effort to save Israel.

We need to remember that Yahweh's staff were highly devoted and inspired priests, under spiritual contracts to advance his power and agenda, and they had no allegiance to truth or honest history, just as our political and religious leaders demonstrate today.  

Back in the 7th century when Judahites returned to their lands from their captivity in Babylon, they saw the two kingdoms of Israel and Judah abandoning the old Yahwism, and blending with their neighbours as they intermarried and adopted their cultures, customs, and gods.

On return, Yahweh's priesthood panicked and sensed they had lost control over the Hebrew population. The state of Israel was in serious crisis, and its founding deity was pushed aside for other more rewarding ones. It was at this crucial time, that one of Yahweh priests and gifted writer, possibly named Ezra, came forward and created a fake history for Israel, in an effort to unite Israel and Judah, under one god, religion, state. This same tactic was copied by Roman Emperor Constantine a few centuries later when he created and weaponized Christianity, and then used it as the central prong in Roman colonialism. 

It was the lowest point in Israel's history, and Ezra tried to save it magically with fiction. He created a fake  history for Israel that included: embellished successes, grand victories, and disturbing triumphs like the fake rescue from Egypt, and the complete destruction of Jericho, to present Yahweh as a hero that elevated Israel among its neighbours.

But Ezra blundered terribly in Jericho in future terms, when he ended up making Yahweh into a destructive, genocidal killer. He made him out to be the antithesis of life who committed his first holocaust there as a kind of ancient "shock and awe", to terrorize everyone, even his own priests. In contrast, the mother goddess Asherah is seen as the real heroine on the land, as she continues to look after and nurture families.

Ezra oversold the power of his god, when he  turned Yahweh into a brutal terrorist and insane destroyer who committed his first holocaust in Jericho. 

Constantine did much the same thing in 325 AD, when a divided Rome was in crisis, and he need some kind of magic to unify and control it, as well as the empire.

Thousands of years later, American writers followed Ezra's formula for fake superheros when creating new publications called comic books.

The Wetico [or Yahweh], virus that has apparently cursed humanity for thousands of years, was revealed to the western world through Carlos Castaneda’s writings, as he investigated shamanic sorcery in Mexico. He described it as The Predator or Flyers.

To set the stage, this section opens with the lead-in question: What Makes Us Human? Soul, Spirit, Body, or Mind?

What answers to this overarching question do we find when we turn to so-called trusted authoritative sources, like dictionaries and Constantine’s bible, that have been used to shape and guide humanity’s daytime thinking and nighttime dreaming for thousands of years? Wise humans approach those tainted sources with caution, knowing that both have been created by  patriarchal societies infected by and dominated with toxic thought forms.

What’s the difference between indigenous and extraneous thoughts? Indigenous thoughts rise up naturally from the landscape of our minds. Extraneous thoughts come to us from the ether surrounding us, and they may simply be ambient thought forms floating around, or they could be directed at us intentionally from an outside source. When extraneous thoughts overlay and dominate our indigenous thoughts, we live in a state of sovereign confusion, unable to discern our own thoughts and mind from theirs, and our own agenda from theirs. Just as order invites or attracts more order, chaos or confusion attracts more of the same energies. These energies self organize around us, creating a cloud of confusion, not unlike “the cloud of unknowing” used by Yahweh to hide from, and deceive his followers. 

My old dictionary [Funk and Wagnalls, Standard College Dictionary, Canadian Edition, 1963] defines "human" as: "Of, belonging to, or characteristic of man. Having, or showing the nature, qualities, or attributes of a man, that is a man, consisting of a man or men, human sacrifice, human race." . 

Patriarchy is a controlling delusion created by males whose agenda is to dominate everything.  The first couple of definitions expose how male delusions of supremacy have always dominated the academic world. They knowingly excluded women and children, as though they did not exist in man’s world. Their infected minds offered:  "human sacrifice" as a human activity that defines humanity, out of thousands of possible higher human activities.

Infected male minds obviously have no idea what it means to be truly human, and consequently they produce false and empty definitions of “ human”.

Many sources of human confusion have been imposed on humans as part of a plan to dominate and control humanity. The current plan taps into the primordial fears of males, that their creations will be restricted or curtailed, that their aggressive energy and agenda will be neutralized and rendered ineffective, by the rational reasonableness of feminine energy. Freud might suggest that it’s really the male fear of castration, and it drives the male need to dominate, out of insecurity.

Humanity has suffered through many cycles of struggle between male and female energies and agendas, but a few thousand years ago a new destructive force emerged on the global landscape. It’s malicious thought forms infected those who were receptive to male dominance, destruction, and control, not just in Palestine, but in many corners of the world. Those toxic thought forms escaped detection by most humans except the special healers who journey into other worlds at their peril, into the dark spiritual wastelands, to find healing solutions for clients.

This malicious force tried to usurp [overthrow], the life giving, nurturing force, the mother goddess Asherah, that had been operating successfully for millennia. Yahwism became a malicious source of ongoing interference that insinuated itself into the minds of men. This extraneous source could access men’s minds with its own thought forms, and it switched male thinking from basically altruistic to basically selfish. Men who once hunted and provided for an entire village, began to hunt only for themselves, and amass material possessions.    

Not surprisingly, Constantine’s bible was also written by men in a patriarchal society. It includes similar male distortions and delusions of grandeur woven in to support their narrative of spiritual dominance, led by Yahweh the Destroyer. Yahweh’s destructive male reality was imposed with violence on Palestine, beginning with a holocaust in Jericho, where Yahweh emerged as the antithesis of life.

Today, we recognize the powerful delusions created by men to gain control over the feminine side of life and land. The reader of my dictionary and Constantine’s bible would be left with a deeply distorted view, a delusion that claims that only men are human, and by omission, women and children are not human, nor do they belong to the human race. Left uncorrected, that delusion of male supremacy has harmed humanity and the environment for millennia.

We’ve seen how patriarchal systems imposed on societies have produced immense global suffering through destructive patriarchal practices like criminal colonization. It includes ancient hate crimes like genocidal land theft, mass killing and stealing, enslaving the survivors physically, spiritually, and legally. And of course we saw Yahweh’s all-inclusive holocausts that destroyed everything living, men, women, children, and the environment. Even animals, trees, plants, and the land were not spared, but raped by men harvesting war materials, under Yahweh’s insane guidance.

Today’s shamans work to heal the many trauma’s inflicted on humanity and the land by criminal colonialism. Much of that healing work includes clearing demonic possessions. Taken together, their increasing work load to remove malicious interfering spirits suggests that males are infected with the destructive Wetico or Yahweh virus, that has driven humanity to thousands of years of suffering and environmental destruction.

Clarification of "Forces"

After walking and exploring this planet for millions of years, humans continue to live in relative darkness, and it's beginning to look like the darkness that dumbs us down, has been here for a long time. We are completely ignorant [or unaware] of where we came from, the forces that brought us here, and the forces that will take us away from here when our clocks run out. 

In the previous message I used the term "force" instead of energy, to show that there is an intended: direction, purpose, or agenda, to the energy on the landscape that indigenous people discovered, trusted, and worked with for generations.

Those forces of nature command us every second of the day, and until we learn to control and use and balance all of them, we will continue to live in imposed darkness.

New Winds of Truth Will Separate the Historical Wheat from the Chaff.

In order to understand the strong and weak forces that the inhabitants of ancient Palestine encountered in their daily lives on the landscape, we need to push aside the obfuscating fiction, or "delusions of unknowing" created by those whose agenda is to dominate everyone with spiritual darkness, yes, I mean Yahweh's priesthood.

Politically awake students of human behaviour, know that official narratives used to control populations, have always been delusions created to convince instead of inform. Facts help us separate spiritual fiction from truth, and archeological evidence is deeply telling:

  • thousands of Asherah figurines, far more than Yahweh artifacts during the same period as substantive evidence of her widespread popularity, when Yahweh attempted his takeover .
  • panels reveal that the first communion ritual in the Levant, was enacted by Palestinian women sharing Asherah bread which they baked, but believed originated from Asherah's  tree of life. Asherah is often depicted as a tree feeding animals with her divine body. In some images she is shown as the source of divine life in communion with all living creatures on the planet. This practice predates the Essenes and Jesus who appropriated this Asherah practice into their religious rites,
  • Asherah's tree of life, was adopted by Hebrew women as the menorah used to this day.

Taken together, we can reconstruct a clearer picture of what really happened in the Levant when the usurper Yahweh moved in, and tired to takeover Asherah's domain around 1400 BCE. He and his priests tried to overthrow the life giving, nurturing energy, and replace it with his extreme violence and destruction [Egypt, Jericho, etc..] that included infant abuse through genital mutilation as a token sacrifice, and targeting virgins to satisfy his sexual depravity.

But the spirit of Asherah has survived in women of heart, for generation after generation, without the benefit of a lying, deceiving priesthood. 

This poem fills in some blanks, and gives us tremendous hope that feminine energy is gathering strength, and will return to rebalance and neutralize Yahweh's destructive darkness and his parasitic forces.



In Hrana’s painting, you are brown, smiling, zaftig,
a sheaf of wheat for the goats in each hand.
My sister from ancient times. Queen of Heaven!
Mother of the Sea!
She who moves across the waters.
Beside Your altars we planted the sycamore fig,
the asherim, sacred to the Goddess,
and its sweet fruit was our communion.
Asherah! Holy consort to Yahweh,
beloved Mother of Canaan, fountain of milk and honey.
Asherah, Astarte, Anath, Ishtar, Isis;
all these names refer to You.
But the Levites of Judah, knowing only their jealous male God,
refused even to refer to You as female.
No woman has ever been priestess among the Levite clan.
In the tomb, the husband above the wife,
superior even in death.

Jehovah, don’t you yearn for Her,
don’t you reach for Her in your darkest nights,
to console your broken heart in Her warm body?
You walked together then, Goddess and God,
before the time of jealousy and fear.
“Destroy their altars, break their images,
and cut down their asherim!” (Exodus 34:10)
cried Moses, trying to please you.
The Promised Land was in fact a bloody siege.
“We put to death every man, woman and child.
We left no survivors.” (Deuteronomy 3: 3-7)

In Jerusalem they destroyed Solomon’s temple
and burned the asherim in the hills.
“Beat the Asherah to dust and cast the dust
upon the graves of the common people!”
the king commanded his high priest, Hilkiah.
“Destroy all those who burn incense to the sun, the moon and the stars,
and all the hosts of the Heavens.
The Lord can no longer bear your abominations.” (II Kings 23:4-10)

Oh Israel! Still your women and men, we the common people
Cry out for our Asherah, Mother Goddess, our solace.
The women and men caught in the crosshairs cry out for You, Asherah.
“We vow to burn incense to Her, the Queen of Heaven,
and pour out our libations.
For then we had plenty of food, and prospered,
and saw no evil.
Since we left off, we have been consumed by the sword
and by famine.” (Jeremiah 44:15-20)

God’s Wife! Our Mother!
Our Asherah of the greenwood,
fruit purple as mulberries.
Woman who makes choices, Woman who connects us,
Woman who knows.
Even Yahweh cries out for You now,
Mother of All,
lonely, lonely
in a vast wasteland
of his own making.

Are Yahweh and Asherah Still Duelling it Out Across the Landscape and the Cosmos?

I find Mother Teresa and John Paul II in the same photo remarkable, because both gods are sharing the same image. For once in human history, the male paternal Christian god Yahweh and his destructive force, are in the same image as the protective female force, the maternal Pagan god Asherah.


Like Jesus, John Paul II may have been the only Christian leader to “live by the heart” in true shamanic tradition. Karol Józef Wojtyla was born in Poland, where he developed a relationship with the mysterious Black Madonna, a symbol of the duality of faiths, or deceptions of faith, that came about when Christianity was imposed forcibly on Pagan Poles. Like so many Pagan nations that were forced to conceal their true faith in the earth spirits they had relied on for millennia, Poles were forced to accept Christianity or die. Consequently, they allowed themselves to be baptized into Christianity, however, they did not abandon the helping forces that had sustained Polish families struggling to make a living on the land, for countless centuries.

Christianized Pagans went to church dutifully on Sundays where they lit token candles to the Christian deity, and the rest of the week they practiced the old Pagan faiths that they grew up trusting. They lit their fires at home to honour their true Pagan gods, and consulted them well into the night. I believe this traditional pattern was repeated wherever an incoming religion was forced onto an unreceptive population. We see the same pattern of dual religions in ancient Palestine, when Yahwism came into the Levant and forced itself onto the indigenous population that had enjoyed a successful relationship with the nurturing mother goddess Asherah. Archeological artifacts prove that the Canaanites living in Palestine supported Asherah more that Yahweh, despite the lies and deceptions of Yahweh’s politically motivated priests who fictionalized their popularity. [Many Asherah elements like: Asherah breads, the menorah, and other cultural practices have survived as important parts of Jewish culture.]

Eventually Karol Wojtyla became the leader of the Roman Catholic Church as John Paul II, the first non-Italian in 400 years. Karol lost his mother at the age of 9, and had grown a personal relationship with the Black Madonna of Eastern Europe, known in Poland as Our Lady of Czestochowa. While she’s been dressed to resemble traditional Christian icons, she is in fact traceable to the original Pagan mother goddess of antiquity, Asherah.

Some of her many names [epithets] are: “She who gave birth to the gods”, “She who walks on water”, “She who rules over nature”, and “She who gives life to humanity”. She has been worshipped in the Middle East as well as many other places as the mother goddess of humanity. In her arms, next to her heart, she holds her progeny, who represents the line of humanity that she created to serve her Annunaki colonies on Earth. She is the Triple Great Grandmother, who gave birth to surface humanity. Her Annunaki name was Ninhursag [4,500 BCE], and though she gave birth to humanity as a slave race, she also endowed it with many of her divine abilities.

It is becoming increasingly clear, that our mission here is to discover and develop those divine abilities as a way of liberating and growing ourselves spiritually, in order to escape the karmic prison created to recycle human souls endlessly.

Last year a few Canadian celebrities tried to grow the war culture in Canada with public admonishments for those of us who did not wear the Red Poppy on Remembrance Day. My letter to the editor went out recently, to the press and government, to correct their collective delusions of supremacy.


Dear Editor,

The many errors in your editorial of November 21, 2019, supporting Don Cherry and the Red Poppy of War, are deeply disturbing, and suggest that fact checking has died.  I’m an immigrant and former war refugee, and your enthusiastic support for Mr. Cherry’s domineering, and bullying speech ordering us [“yous”], to honour the Red Poppy, was deeply offensive, because it demands our support for hate crimes known as war.

War refugees are the victims of war. We honour the White Poppy of peace, and we recognize all wars as hate crimes. We refuse to honour and perpetuate the depravity that destroyed over 100 million lives, and much of the environment, in two insane wars in Europe.

Canadian records inform us that most Canadians [as high as 90% in some areas] had to be conscripted [legally forced] to fight and die, to protect the same European colonial powers that destroyed and enslaved much of the indigenous world.  The Red Poppy has been used to dishonour their moral refusals, and their ethical objections to violence, in order to conceal the lies used to create wars.  

The pernicious delusion of British Christian Supremacy has destroyed countless millions of lives globally for power and profit. Criminal colonialism is: “the use of violence to gain political control over indigenous nations and their land wealth”.

The “Dominion of Canada” was designed by British Christian Supremacists to maintain permanent control, or “domination”, over Canada’s minorities for power and profit. Colonial terrorism combines: physical, spiritual, and legal terrorism, to seize and maintain control over everything indigenous.

Supremacists produced many nightmares in Canada, including Canadian sovereignty.  The crisis of sovereignty in Canada is being played out now, as we all try to assert our own much needed sense of individual sovereignty, while ensuring the protection of everyone’s sovereignty, rights, and freedoms.

Supremacists produced the Canadian Holocaust, a 150 year period of religious persecution of native children by Christians, producing generational traumas that resulted in the destruction of millions of indigenous lives. While Germany destroyed the delusion of British Christian Supremacy in WWII, when it tried to colonize Europe, Supremacist thinking has survived in parts of Canada, because they’ve never been brought to justice for their crimes against humanity, until now.

Postmedia editors backed another delusion when they tried to find support for Supremacy in nature, by choosing a top predator like the bald eagle to represent Mr. Cherry.  As every nature photographer who has stalked the bald eagle knows, it is a screechy, ignoble, coward. The highly overrated bald eagle flees at the slightest sound in the forest, while the tiny Black Capped Chickadee, belittled by Postmedia editors, is so fearless that it will fly over to investigate the noise. Wild eagles eat other birds, as well as garbage in landfill sites, and run from man. The noble Chickadee eats spiders and seeds, not other birds. A wonderful spiritual experience awaits anyone lucky enough to have a wild Chickadee come to your hand for a few seeds. As it sits in your hand it studies your face, while its little chest pounds with raw courage. They’re highly social, and they work in ordered groups. Chickadees are backyard birds, who also live in our boreal forests where they’ve brought inspiration and cheer to many a lost woodsman.  Chickadees exemplify the best in Canadians. They are noble birds that teach us how to live well in caring communities, with simple courage, and possibly the only bird worthy of being Canada’s National Bird.                                                        My backyard photo

Holy Erythema Batman, Who Was That Entity?

In “The Way of the Sacred” [1989], Francis Huxley traces the use of sacred symbols over human history. He writes that: “It involves sacred places, sacred times, sacred occasions, and sacred powers.”

I posit that Huxley misunderstood the term sacred, and got it backwards. We humans are intrinsically sacred, equally or more sacred than any physical or spiritual entities that surround us, and try to have their way with us in the multiverse.

Our sacred human attention and intention, elevates those who would be our spiritual leaders,  to higher levels of sacredness.  Historically, Constantine elevated the shaman Jesus to the level of a Roman god, in order to create the Roman state religion called Christianity.  This perspective changes our understanding of ‘deities without an audience’, as nothing more than vagabond entities trolling for spiritual sustenance from an adoring cult following.

Huxley refers to how Moses sanctified Mt.Sinai, in preparation for a visit/meeting with the entity that had contacted him [Yahweh], with promises of lands full of milk and honey. An honest divinity would have been fully truthful with Moses, but Yahweh the Deceiver hid the fact that he did not own any lands. Yahweh bamboozled Moses with lies and deceptive promises just to seduce him and the Hebrews, in order to create a strike force. The lands would have to be taken by criminal means; killing and stealing.  In order to steal the lands, Yahweh led the Hebrews to violate his own commandments. He led them down into depravity that we call terrorism in modern times. The creation of Israel would be founded on crimes against humanity, as Jericho was sacrificed by Yahweh in his first of many holocausts.

Yahweh was the dark destructive force of death on the landscape of ancient Palestine. He did not lead his Hebrews into spiritual ascension, but into spiritual profanity, depravity, and entropy as he committed the first holocaust on the residents of Jericho that refused to fall down before him, and worship him as a god.

So why did Moses need to sanctify Mt.Sinai? If Yahweh was a true divinity, ie: a supreme being with command over the planet and all of its forces, wouldn’t his mere presence automatically sanctify Mt. Sinai and its surroundings? The reason given in Constantine’s bible is to protect the Hebrew’s against Yahweh’s awesome glory.  Could too much divine presence harm unprotected humans, or too much radiation from nuclear powered spacecraft? Was the glow on Moses’ face due to the high spiritual energy of Yahweh, or the nuclear energy aboard his vehicle? The old testament alleges that Moses spent a lot of time talking with the entity.

Skin reddening, the sunburn effect, or erythema can result from exposure to many sources…even hot spices. However, radiation skin burns from ionizing sources can be observed following an acute threshold dose of 3 Sieverts, or 3,000 mSv.  Many nuclear devices, even modest ones, can deliver this dose in just a few minutes of unprotected exposure.

 Why would this radiation dose not harm the occupants of the nuclear vehicle? We do not know what biological form the occupants [fake deities] possess as they travel.  It seems quite likely, that the vehicle would have been operated by an avatar, or some reasonable facsimile,  and not the real entity, so it would  not experience the same biological effects as humans.  The operator of the vehicle may be able to control or regulate the density of its body to reduce the accumulated travel dose.

We note the same or similar effects arising from human exposure to the device called the Ark of the Covenant. It is reminiscent of the great smoke and noise distractions used by the playful Wizard of Oz,[Professor Marvel],  to keep nosy visitors away from his secrets that concealed a complete absence of divine power. A cheap wizard's trick?

It's my birthday, and now the world will know why I love to go deep. Groundhogs know intuitively where all the dirt is buried. We are powerful diggers in darkness, and eventually our tunnels bring us up to the light, but not before we've made an awful mess of things. 

Feb 1, is the midpoint of winter, and Feb.2 brings change to the hardest part of winter that opens itself into spring...
