  • His Image September 15 For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son… Romans 8:29

    Alexander Hamilton, among America’s founders, was born on a Caribbean island, illegitimate and in poverty. In youth, he became a protégé and top aide to George Washington, who shaped him into greatness, sometimes midst the anguish and dangers of the Revolutionary War.

    The grand purpose toward which God is shaping His covenant child is Christlikeness. We are born outside the Kingdom of God, in spiritual destitution, but God promises to form us into the very image and character of the spotless Son of God. His promise is that everything that happens to His child is aimed at that great purpose. https://mailchi.mp/5926b988dbe0/his-image-453005?e=9cbe669f39

    A Toronto man convicted of travelling to Turkey to join the so-called Islamic State has been released from prison four months after he was sentenced, an official said Wednesday.

    Pamir Hakimzadah was charged with terrorism in April 2017 following what the RCMP called an “extensive” national security investigation. He pleaded guilty in February 2019.

    He has now been freed from a maximum security prison in Penetanguishene, Ont., said Andrew Morrison, a spokesperson for the Ontario Ministry of the Solicitor General.

  • AOC Holds 'Impromptu Session' for Constituents on Solar Panels at Rikers After Town Hall Event Overflows
    https://www.commondreams.org/news/2019/06/07/aoc-holds-impromptu-session-constituents-solar-panels-rikers-after-town-hall-event
    Eoin Higgins, staff writer

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez joined other Queens Democrats Thursday in calling for installing solar panels on Rikers Island as part of an urban renewal plan that would find alternative uses for 413 acres after the infamous prison there is closed in 2026.

    Due in part to Ocasio-Cortez's popularity, the scheduled forum at the Jewish Center of Jackson Heights saw a line to get into the event that stretched around the block, resulting in a number of people being shut out of the event.

    The Democratic congresswoman went outside to talk to some of those turned away, holding what she described as an "impromptu session on the street" to discuss next steps for the island.

    "If you put just 25 percent of Rikers Island and cover it in solar panels, we can close every toxic power plant in New York City that was built in the last two decades," said Ocasio-Cortez.

    In April, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio promised to shut down Rikers in 2026, a year earlier than previously projected. The Queens community is debating the right next steps for the land, and Thursday's event was part of that ongoing discussion.

    While Ocasio-Cortez was the main draw at the center, she wasn't the only prominent Democrat at the event. New York City council member Costa Constantinides, whose Climate Mobilization Act, described as the "largest single carbon reduction effort that any city, anywhere, has ever put forward," passed in April, was on hand as well to promote converting at least part of the island to renewable energy production.

    In comments two weeks before the event, Constantinides described closing Rikers as a "moral imperative" for communities that see loved ones languish in the facility. Constantinides also said that shutting the prison down "presents a unique opportunity to also get power plants out of those same communities, correcting another historic injustice."

    On Thursday, Constantinides told the crowd that reclaiming Rikers was a priority—and that the community should be looking to the future for the use of the island.

    "We can make sure this land is never used for any other atrocity again," said Constantinides.

    "It's time for us to think how we can get climate justice for the same communities that were torn apart by the criminal justice system, emblematic in Rikers Island," Constantinides added.

    Ocasio-Cortez, during her meeting with constituents outside of the event, sounded the same themes of community and tied the climate to issues of privilege and social justice.

    "Our right to clean air and access to clean water always falls along lines of income, along lines of privilege," said the congresswoman. "We need to make sure that no child is subjected to asthma because of the family they were born in and the zip code they were born in, and that no person should get lead in their water because they couldn't afford to live in a high-rise apartment."

    "These are not luxuries," Ocasio-Cortez added, "these are rights."

  • MAY ENERGY UPDATES


    Wesak May 19, 2019

    Wesak is one of my favorite times of year, I just love the blending of the Buddha and the Christ with Quan Yin being a chickie buffer in-between them, these are 3 of my favorite spiritual energies. When they come together is it very soft and powerful and every cell of the body can feel the holy dispensations.

    Wesak is the celebration of Buddha's birth/ enlightenment /& death. According to ancient beliefs, the Buddha was born, attained enlightenment, and left Earthly incarnation under the Full Moon of Taurus. The Buddha returns at this time each year to bring a new Light to the world. Spiritual leaders from all dimensions and times gather in Wesak Valley, high in the Himalayas.

    Wesak is the time in which the Christ gathers the entire Spiritual Hierarchy together in meditation to invoke the healing forces of Shamballa, and The Buddha. The Buddha is the expression of the Wisdom of God, the embodiment of Light and the indicator of Divine purpose. The Christ represents Gods promise and unending Love for humanity. The Wesak is like a holy pitcher pouring out a blessed healing elixir.

    Humanity is in a place of learning to truly see, to create, to make real by looking through the quantum portal, deep into the proverbial rabbit hole. It is time to change the description of what once defined thought. A call to duty is announced to all that are willing to expand. Without playing favoritism with any particular side of creation, exchange the cross for the crown. Encircling what you want with clear intention, dotting your "I AM's" and uncrossing your "t's". Any and all limitations are the source of your power. Any darkness you battle can be a source of power if transformed from lead into gold. What stretches you comes from all sources. You have changed forever never to return to who you once were. You sit perched on a new branch of heart and light awaiting a signal of when it is safe to fly, neither sign, nor signal comes, You must rely only upon your own intuition to move forward.

    As a singularity you sit in a place of great power and sacredness; all that you do or do not do is created by you and you alone. By seeing the existing blessings in your transformative lives you will create a connection for this wave of blessedness to adhere to. The more thoughts you have of blessing what is in your life right now the more energy is generated, and the easier the new connection will be made. Thoughts of thankfulness and gratitude beckon this wave of blessedness; thoughts of negativity repel it. The fruits of all past labors of life and love can be now tasted and supped upon. What was once thought to be lost is found within ones very life. Energy spent in helping others was placed into a universal account that has accrued to mighty proportions. Nothing was ever lost or wasted or tossed away in thoughts intentions, actions of goodness and kindness.

    All actions of inherent good have been counted and accounted for by the universal abacus. All time spent in prayer and kind thoughts for others has been exponentially expanded and multiplied beyond earth's ability to count. A great amount of heavenly rewards finds itself on the road to the masses. Fractals restructure themselves into different patterns of thought as the light within the unexpected and unexplained is turned up so high that even the 3 blind mice can see. You are leaving the energy of what has so distracted you and moving into a place of sharp focus. Chose to see all or nothing, do not turn a blind 3rd eye to any possibility


    I am the Light of Quan Yin

    Quan Yin is such a beautiful expression of the Divine Mother. She is known as the Great goddess and Mother of Compassion and Mercy, and is loved and revered throughout the world no matter religious beliefs . Mercy means there is more assistance given through love than through earned Merit. Kwan Yin is associated with the earth, fertility, birth, and healing. She has brought forth the energies of Magnified Healing. Quan Yin the Goddess of Compassion is often depicted riding on a dragon. She is the eastern counterpart of Mother Mary, she works to balance the feminine energies. She is one of the Lords of Karma representing the sixth ray. Isis carried the same 'mother energy' in Egypt.

    One of the several stories surrounding Quan Yin is that she was a Buddhist who through great love and sacrifice during her life on earth, earned the right to enter Nirvana after death. While standing before the gates of Paradise she heard a cry of anguish from the earth below. Turning back to earth, she renounced her reward of eternal bliss, and dedicated herself to the hearts of the suffering. Following her ascension Kwan Yin made this pledge, "Never will I seek, nor receive, private individual salvation, never will I enter into final peace alone, but forever and everywhere will I live and strive for the redemption of every creature throughout the world from the bonds of conditioned existence

    Quan Yin means ‘One Who Sees and Hears the Cry from the Human World’. Her Chinese title signifies, "She who always observes or pays attention to sounds. she who hears prayers. Worshipped especially by women, this goddess comforts the troubled, the sick, the lost, the senile and the unfortunate. she is now also regarded as the protector of seafarers, farmers and travelers. Quan Yin is depicted as a barefoot, gracious woman dressed in beautiful, white flowing robes, with a white hood gracefully draped over the top of the head and carrying a small upturned vase of holy dew. She stands tall and slender, a figure of infinite grace, her gently composed features conveying selflessness and compassion that have made her the favorite of all deities.

    I am the light of Quan Yin. I come on this day to escort you into mercy and blessings for you are truly a blessing to me. You stretch and dedicate yourself to walk upon the path of enlightenment, which is so often strewn with earthly dangers and physical pains. You are such blessings to me because you try so hard to fly above the earthly pain and suffering into a place you can see with the eyes of your soul.

    You are blessings to me because you continue to pray against all odds. You are my blessings and I come to help you remember the sacred contract that you have made with your body, with your mind, and with your spirit. For the trinity of you is so very Holy. You house the very universe in your physical body. In the time of Wesak when the Buddha and the Christ came together they will not separate their dispensations and heavenly gifts but will become as One, merging transfiguring and shifting, together.

    The Buddha will hold the vibrations of the Christ and the Christ will hold the vibrations of the Buddha. As you merge with them vibrationally you will become like sea water that has been in a jar too long and seeks the ocean. You are becoming, in the fluidness of your future. Allow yourself to be poured into new light assemblies stretching yourself beyond any prior limitations. This is a time for all of humanity to dispense with the contractions, to dispense with the fear, to dispense with anger. Both the Buddha and the Christ come and ask you to disband all that is toxic or negative, release it, and let it go. These Wesak dispensations come to you as cleansing bubbles that clear what has been hardened. Delete what keeps you less than. Dissolve with what keeps you from loving each another. Diffuse what keeps another from loving you. Stop using the excuses of your past to keep yourself powerless in the present. I am Quan Yin and you are my blessings.


    Fluid Creativity

    This power-filled summer will allow all of us the opportunity to align with all that was before known creation. This energy unveils itself in the form of pure undiluted universal possibility. The alpha and the omega and every atom in-between invite you to partake of their distinct truths. You are finally able to enter the ‘free flowing’ experience of all possibility. Learning to truly see, to create, to make real by looking through the quantum portal deep into space and time, takes its toll on your imagination, pushing you past any possible thoughts into the land of ‘fluid creativity.’ It is time to change the description of what once was thought to be possible and redefine that word. Like Dolly Parton said ”honey get off that cross someone needs the wood”, exchange the cross for the crown! Encircle what you want with clear intention, dotting your "I AM's" and uncrossing your karma.

    You have finally come to the realization that your thoughts are the ‘source of your power.’ Any and all limitations are the ‘source of your power’. Any darkness you battle within can be the source of power, if transformed from lead into gold. This year issues a decree that you must become the Heroes. One who rises from battle over and over again and continues to move forward thru sheer will to do good. You have changed forever never to return to who you once were. You sit perched on a new branch of heart and light awaiting a signal of when it is safe to fly, neither sign, nor signal comes, you must rely only upon your own instinct to move forward. As this singularity you sit in a place of great power and sacredness; all that you do or do not do is created by you and you alone.

  • #Garden of #Gethsemane”
    April 17 And He came out and proceeded as was His custom to the #MountOfOlives; and the #disciples also followed Him. When He arrived at the place, He said to them, “ #Pray that you may not enter into #temptation.” And He #withdrew from them about a stone’s throw, and He knelt down and began to pray, saying, “Father, if You are willing, #removeThisCup from Me; yet not My will, but Yours be done.” Now an #angel from #heaven appeared to Him, #strengthening Him. And being in #agony He was praying very #fervently; and His #sweat became like #dropsOfBlood, falling down upon the ground.
    #Luke 22:39-44
    Listen to #todaysDevotional

    Before #Jesus would #endure the #physicalSuffering you’ve just #considered, He would experience #emotional and #spiritual #torment that was far #greater. In the #garden, the full scope of Jesus' #mission became readily #apparent. Jesus knew, once He left the garden, all that would occur: the #treacherous #betrayal by one of His own; being #derided and made #sport of by #soldiers; a #circus #trial in which #guilty #politicians #proclaimed #judgment on an #innocentMan; #brutal #beatings; and then, the #cross, the bearing of your #sin and mine.

    Without a doubt, this was the most #terrible of #missions ever given to an #individual. As you imagine the #serene garden scene, #contemplate the anguish Jesus must have #felt; the #mental #strain as He tried to grapple with His #Father's will: "Are you sure this is what You want Me to do?"
    Take your time; there is no hurry. Allow your thoughts to center on Jesus in His most holy moment. #Remember that His anguish was so great, His sweat became like drops of blood.

    Next, #reflect on the cup set before Him. Throughout the #OldTestament, the cup signified #GodsWrath; it was a symbol of #GodsJudgment against #sin from which #God makes the #rebelliousNations #drink. Jesus is the only one who ever lived whose sin didn't contribute to that cup, who didn’t deserve to #drink God's wrath – and yet, here, in the #GardenofGethsemane, He #surrendered to His Father’s will: "Shall I not drink the cup the Father has given Me?"

    Having considered Christ's #obedience, think about your own life mission. Are you in a Garden of Gethsemane moment? Is God calling you to do something you #naturally want to #resist, but His #persistent #voice is #callingYou #forward? Following #GodsWill often #requires #substantial #sacrifice.
    Is there a sacrifice God is asking you to make, perhaps on behalf of your #family, for the sake of a #friend, to #serve your #church? Let our #Lord's #example guide you to a new #commitment to be #faithful and #obedient to your mission, #regardless of the #cost.

    Prayer
    Lord, #thankYou for #accepting Your mission; now I pray that You will grant me a #willing heart to #accept mine. I can be so #mindful and even #resentful of the sacrifices required to love my family, serve in my #vocation, be a part of Your family and church, that I forget the #glory of Your prayer, "Not My will, but Yours be done." Lord, today, let this be #myPrayer also. https://mailchi.mp/bb17b489a3bf/last-supper-p11xhrx3h5-452221?e=9cbe669f39

Jesus knew, once He left the garden, all that would occur: the #treacherous #betrayal by one of His own; being #derided and made #sport of by #soldiers; a #circus #trial in which #guilty #politicians #proclaimed #judgment on an #innocentMan; #brutal #beatings; and then, the #cross, the bearing of your #sin and mine. Without a doubt, this was the most #terrible of #missions ever given to an #individual. As you imagine the #serene garden scene, #contemplate the anguish Jesus must have #felt; the #mental #strain as He tried to grapple with His #Father's will: "Are you sure this is what You want Me to do?" Take your time; there is no hurry. Allow your thoughts to center on Jesus in His most holy moment. #Remember that His anguish was so great, His sweat became like drops of blood. Next, #reflect on the cup set before Him. Throughout the #OldTestament, the cup signified #GodsWrath; it was a symbol of #GodsJudgment against #sin from which #God makes the #rebelliousNations #drink. Jesus is the only one who ever lived whose sin didn't contribute to that cup, who didn’t deserve to #drink God's wrath – and yet, here, in the #GardenofGethsemane, He #surrendered to His Father’s will: "Shall I not drink the cup the Father has given Me?" Having considered Christ's #obedience, think about your own life mission. Are you in a Garden of Gethsemane moment? Is God calling you to do something you #naturally want to #resist, but His #persistent #voice is #callingYou #forward? Following #GodsWill often #requires #substantial #sacrifice. Is there a sacrifice God is asking you to make, perhaps on behalf of your #family, for the sake of a #friend, to #serve your #church? Let our #Lord's #example guide you to a new #commitment to be #faithful and #obedient to your mission, #regardless of the #cost. Prayer Lord, #thankYou for #accepting Your mission; now I pray that You will grant me a #willing heart to #accept mine. I can be so #mindful and even #resentful of the sacrifices required to love my family, serve in my #vocation, be a part of Your family and church, that I forget the #glory of Your prayer, "Not My will, but Yours be done." Lord, today, let this be #myPrayer also. https://mailchi.mp/bb17b489a3bf/last-supper-p11xhrx3h5-452221?e=9cbe669f39
    "Garden of Gethsemane"
    Before Jesus would endure the physical suffering you've just considered, He would experience emotional and spiritual torment that was far greater.
