Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. This Poem I write to you, are you troubled by silent questions? Still aware, that spoken questions deserve answers, followed by actions? The biggest question we have, deserves the world, the worth, to put it in words? Again some week answer? And hide away, silently remembering historical hurts? Did life won the feared battle from us individually, and us all?
Standing alone in silence, self decision making seems rough? Just make the decision, in the end you will feel tough enough. Visualizing the wall so high, the border so far, even to scared while imagining! Imagining building inner trust, strength and pride that will be never ending! Where the trigger does should come from, something needed to start, Will we be waiting for the bomb, as that power provides, will awaken our hart?
The world showed his errors, examples, way too big or too small. Again excusing us weakened all? Not teaching us to stand strong while we are forced on steps to take. Humans think often, the world is too much to take. Do we use survival instinct, when that world is at stake? Now with some details, I will show the irony in this. Walking by, around real essentials, and leave them as it is…. We must look different to needed changes, cultures and mindsets heading for the cliffs and loose. Opens different kinds of doors, for the lonely life changer the entrance to be?
As stepping out of the box at first, loneliness is part of the challenge. Need an example? You will find in the movies, visuals will help with the balance. Believing is you! That pure feeling inside! No world war started from that. Can we stand still, could a simple poem stand a difference..? It will be the reader who breaks down his offence. That would only be fair. Boor Year Posted For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ. Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For He had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. For it had seized him many times; and he was bound with chains and shackles and kept under guard, and yet he would break his bonds and be driven by the demon into the desert.
Be of sober spirit, be on the alert Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Rockefeller and his brother William Rockefeller primarily through Standard Oil. He had six children with his first wife Eliza Davison, the most prominent of which were oil tycoons John Davison Rockefeller and William Rockefeller , co-founders of Standard Oil.
Oil baron John D. Rockefeller was a devout Northern Baptist , and he supported many church-based institutions. The family was heavily involved in numerous real estate construction projects in the U. Beginning with John Sr. John Jr. Members of the Rockefeller family into the fourth generation especially the prominent banker and philanthropist David Rockefeller , who is the present family patriarch have been heavily involved in international politics, and have donated money to, established or been involved in the following major international institutions:.
The Rockefeller Archive Center , an independent foundation that was until a division of Rockefeller University ,  is a vast three-story underground bunker built below the Martha Baird Rockefeller Hillcrest mansion on the family estate at Pocantico see Kykuit. Along forty-foot-long walls of shelves on rails, maintained by ten full-time archivists, is the entire repository of personal and official papers and correspondence of the complete family and its members, along with historical papers of its numerous foundations, as well as other non-family philanthropic institutions.

These include: the Commonwealth Fund , Charles E. Culpeper Foundation , Lucille P. Markle Foundation. In total, it holds over 70 million pages of documents and contains the collections of forty-two scientific, cultural, educational and philanthropic organizations. Only the expurgated records of deceased family members are publicly available to scholars and researchers; all records pertaining to living members are closed to historians. The Center maintains that this repository of records, covering plus years of the records of the family, in addition to non-Rockefeller philanthropic collections, gives unique insights into United States and world issues and social developments in both the 19th and 20th centuries.
Records in the collection are available up until only the early s, generally Major subjects in the collection include:. The combined wealth of the family — their total assets and investments plus the individual wealth of its members — has never been known with any precision.
Much of the wealth has been locked up in the notable family trust of which holds the bulk of the fortune and matures on the death of the fourth generation , and the trust of , both administered by Chase Bank , the corporate successor to Chase Manhattan Bank. They are administered by a powerful trust committee that oversees the fortune. The present chairman is David Rockefeller Jr. In September , the Rockefeller Brothers Fund announced it will divest its investments in fossil fuel companies. Over the generations the family members have resided in some notable historic homes.
A trademark of the dynasty over its plus years has been the remarkable unity it has maintained, despite major divisions that developed in the late s, and unlike other wealthy families such as the Du Ponts and the Mellons. This was partly achieved by regular brothers and family meetings, but it was also because of the high value placed on family unity by first Nelson and John III, and later especially with David. The combined personal and social connections of the various family members are vast, both in America and throughout the world, including the most powerful politicians, royalty, public figures, and chief businessmen.
Fred Bergsten , Peter G. In the family was presented with the Honor Award from the National Building Museum for four generations worth of preserving and creating some of the U. The Rockefeller name is imprinted in numerous places throughout the United States, most notably in New York City , but also in Cleveland , where the family originates:. He also funded the notable excavations at Luxor in Egypt, as well as establishing a Classical Studies School in Athens.
In addition, he provided the funding for the construction of the Palestine Archaeological Museum in East Jerusalem — the Rockefeller Museum. Historically, the major focus of their benefactions have been in the educational, health and conservation areas. Family leaders in both philanthropy and business have included John D. Another noted family member was Michael Rockefeller , son of Nelson Rockefeller, an anthropologist who came to media attention after he was presumed killed in New Guinea in The corporate, financial, and personal affairs of the family — numbering around blood relatives of John D.
Room is also the base of the current family historian, Peter J. Many if not all of these family members are involved in institutionalised philanthropic pursuits. An article in the New York Times in stated that William Rockefeller had, at that time, 28 great-grandchildren. In most wolf packs, there will be an alpha male and female and frequently an omega male and female.
In wolf hierarchy, the males tend to dominate other males and the females dominate other females so that there is generally a low ranking member of each sex. The alpha pair would never allow the omega male and female to mate, therefore the omegas are not pair-bonded to each other like the alphas. In the beginning of the project, the Sawtooth Pack was small, consisting only of five males. So Lakota held the omega position alone. One of the things that was so noticeable about Lakota was his posture.
He kept his tail tucked, his shoulders hunched and his head lowered as he moved about with uncertainty. Because of his demeanor it was difficult for me to see, but actually Lakota was a huge wolf, larger than the three other mid-ranking wolves and possibly even larger than his brother, Kamots, the alpha. His paws were definitely bigger.
Obviously there was more to social rank in a wolf pack than mere size and strength. Over the years that I observed him, Lakota would often approach me and timidly lick my face. During these occasions, I would run my hand down his back through his fur coat. Sadly, his skin was riddled with small bumps and scabs where the other wolves had nipped him, and there were small scars on his muzzle where the fur would not grow back.
In dominance displays, a dominant wolf will frequently grab the muzzle of the submissive wolf, as a mother might do to discipline her pups. Then, he would take his paw, gently place it on my shoulder, and gaze at me with his sweet, wise, amber eyes. We would sit that way for quite a while. From that moment, I was captivated by him and would forever hold a special place for him in my heart.
Over the years, Lakota and I continued to have this special bond. Sometimes I would purposefully sneak away from the rest of the pack to carry on this clandestine friendship with the beleaguered omega. We were careful not to show any interest in each. Instead, I would join him at times when he was by himself, and we would sit together, his paw on my shoulder.
Although Lakota was not the initial choice for pack omega, the killing of Motaki by a mountain lion had forced him into that position and he began to adapt to it. It may sound odd, but he became a wonderful omega. In some ways, the omega is like the court jester. He must suffer terrible abuse at the hands of the king and court, but he is undeniably loved. Like a jester, the omega is often the one to instigate play and act the fool.
The omega suddenly crouched into a play stance with his head low, front legs splayed wide, rump and wagging tail in the air. Kamots would spring into action, darting and snapping playfully. He zigzagged through the grass with his mouth agape and his lips pulled back as if in a smile, nearly allowing himself to be caught, then leaping ahead. Eventually Lakota was caught, or let himself be caught. He flipped over onto his back in surrender, bestowing on Kamots the full victory. Kamots straddled his brother snarling and snapping in mock aggression. On another occasion, I again saw Kamots and Lakota racing through the meadow in a game of chase.
The two brothers are extremely similar in appearance — large with very typical black and gray markings — so it took me a while before I realized to my amazement that this time Lakota was chasing Kamots. In an amazing twist in their standard game, Kamots was allowing himself to be the victim!
As I grew to know these wolves I realized that this was a regular occurrence, one that bears no scientific explanation other than the fact that sometimes it is fun to be the one getting chased. To me, it implies that there is a lot more going on in the inner life of wolves than we can imagine. In humans, an older, stronger brother might let a younger brother pin him in a mock wrestling match, feigning defeat and letting his younger sibling celebrate victory.
Both know who the dominant one is, but it is fun to reverse the roles. Many a scientist would gasp at the. Witnessing scenes like this, the only interpretation I could make was that Kamots and Lakota genuinely cared for each other. Some years later, while scouting for wolves along the Yukon River with Jim, I watched from a small airplane as a pack played a game of tag in the deep snow. The attention he would draw to himself could sometimes result in a full-on mobbing.
It was painful to watch his hopeful expectations dissolve, fear spring into his eyes, and his entire posture change. Amazingly enough, he would return time after time, inviting the pack to join in a game of chase or tug of war, eternally brave and eternally hopeful. Group rallies were another risky time for Lakota. Often the pack gathered together and howled, as if to celebrate its solidarity.
The real reason for this ritual is unknown. Sometimes it appeared that Kamots would purposefully start to howl, apparently calling the pack together and reminding everyone of his leadership. Other times the rallies seemed more spontaneous, with a spontaneous howl bubbling up inside one of the wolves, then bursting forth uncontrollably.
When one wolf began to howl, the others would quickly join in and assemble around Kamots. As the rally grew in intensity, the wolves often displayed their dominance, sparring, growling and pinning each other to the ground. These were dangerous times for the omega. Regardless of the bickering that went on between the mid-ranking wolves, Amani and Motomo, most of the aggression was transferred to Lakota. All the same, he would often be there, lending his voice to the group howl. I would try to find an occasion when a wolf was howling more or less by himself, rather than right in the middle of the group.
This was easier with Lakota because he often stood on the fringe, howling, but trying to keep a low profile. When I first recorded his howl, I was amazed at what was coming through my headphones. Lakota, eyes shut and head thrown back, was just pouring his heart out. His rich, mournful voice soared into the evening and hung in the air for what seemed like forever. I actually found myself welling up at the sheer beauty and expressiveness of his song. I felt as though I were listening to him sing the blues, giving voice to all the loneliness and pain that his social position brought him.
To experience a pack of wolves howling together is to bear witness to one of the most mysterious and awe inspiring events in nature. It almost seems that the wolves themselves have no choice but to join in when the Alpha howls. Lakota could never be certain if his participation would get him into trouble, but he could not help but be a part of it. He would slink from wolf to wolf and pay his respects, his tail tucked and his head nearly scraping the ground. His participation was looked on as almost an insult by some of the mid-ranking wolves, as if he were overstepping his bounds.
Amani seemed especially determined to put Lakota in his place and during pack rallies he would frequently rush at Lakota, snarling and flashing his teeth. It often looked as though Amani had knocked Lakota off his feet, but in reality Lakota was just flipping over and surrendering. Although Lakota was rarely hurt in these displays, his cries were agonizing to hear. Amani would stand triumphantly over Lakota, making the omega beg to be let up.
Once he was satisfied that his point was made, that he was the more dominant wolf, Amani would let up and Lakota would slink away quietly, through with howling for a while. I had grown accustomed to being extra careful in giving attention to Lakota but there were be times when our surreptitious meetings would be discovered. Any human activity always drew intense interest from the pack.
If Motomo or Amani spotted Lakota and me sitting together, they would hurry over to investigate and to find out why Lakota was getting attention that they were not. In some ways they reminded me of children. If one wolf had something, a bone, a stick, or the attention of a human, all the others wanted it. This seemed to satisfy them and keep the peace. Lakota knew the rules all too well and would discreetly walk away from me, unharmed but always the underdog.
This Journal is A manual for living the life blessed of God. Insightful to the heart, offering hope? Stilling troubled waters with penetrating clarity. Cutting to the core of the nature of man, yet offering such gentle direction filled with compassion beyond measure. Words which resonate as musical chords within the very soul essence. Each energy uniquely powerful, yet in accordance, together they form a team of One.
Oh yes, man of Earth, heed well the gracious words of wisdom from these Teachers of the Seven Rays of Life for they have come to see this journey through. They shall be known to the faithful as wonderful; they shall be known to thine enemies as death. They come forth in this volume to make known their energies unto this scribe and unto you ones who will receive.
Each has a realm of Truth that you might have instructions and Light of function for you will need rebuild and become in wholeness once again. For each thing that you have brought to pass upon this wondrous orb you shall be given reminding for the vessels shall be emptied and the rewards appropriate unto each and every one; none shall escape—not through murder, suicide, hiding nor running away—all shall be meted forth his justice before the heavenly councils.
A few of the important topics covered are: Who is telling the Truth? Get prepared for first strike. Other topics are: Melchizedek blighted through evil input — Gender problems and responsibility — Healing comes through mind. Universal Law not miracles — Christ path deliberately hidden — Preparation for transmutation — No secular alliance — Children are of primary concern.
Index Included. All is but cycles ending in the infinity of the whole—circle of infinity, if ye will. The journey will spiral always until such time as thought projection takes you into the sequence of events which allows for learning and passage—each experience and portion adding to the whole until the circle becomes ONE. There is only infinite Reality symbolized by the circle of endless time. This is what teachers have called Tao, Nirvana, whatever the term according to communication of intent and definition.
The illusion of the world and the illusion of the Self in the world both come to an end. Only infinite Reality remains. When the world is conquered, it fades away. May the Truth rest gently upon your being that you might find your way more clearly. What, then, is it that we are after in our searching—our journey?
We look for Truth, Knowing and Returning in wholeness unto Source—always leaving that which is Truth for the generations to come. Enlighten Man and ye have no adversary. So what has happened through the ages that MAN has tampered and destroyed to keep from the people created in such perfection and intelligent God reason? So where does the story, this never-ending story—take up memory patterns which allows for insight?
We choose to reveal that which can be connected within your own oral mythology. Since we, my scribe and I, often move back into an experience upon which to bring understanding within our connection, we journey in the memory of those times of Egyptians and recognition of Aton and feeble beginnings at recognition of Truth. Constantly comes the testing of readiness of species and civilizations in the density of placement in the cause of learning. Always it has been the thrust of the Elite would-be-gods to destroy and change Truth to deceive and maintain power. Why think ye that places such as the great libraries such as that of the Alexandrian Library were destroyed?
What happened at Alexandria? Let us look a bit at the setting and see if perhaps there was yet much to be desired in the writings either before or after the destruction of scrolls and sheets of scribblings. Truth abides in the memory and can never be completely destroyed. This is WHY the oral traditions, even with symbols misunderstood by the masses—hold the actual Truth of evolvement and connections with infinite eternal experience.
It is generally acknowledged that the ancient Egyptians possessed an extraordinary knowledge of the arts and sciences. Their earliest Pharaohs were patrons of learning in all its branches. Their priests and philosophers were noted among the most scholarly of men. The architecture of the Egyptians awed the world for centuries, and their wisdom in chemistry, anatomy, medicine, and astronomy was no less amazing. How could it be? Under the dynasty of the Ptolemies, the city of Alexandria became a mecca for so-called scholars.
The studious of all nations congregated there to enjoy unparalleled opportunities for mental self-improvement and perhaps this is when massive mental disinformation really got a strong hold on civilization. Poets, historians, philosophers, and dramatists assembled in the city of the Ptolemies largely to consult the vast libraries which had been accumulated by the Pharaohs of this illustrious line.
I would note herein that the only Pharaoh of the time period who was worthy of any note at all was one called Akhnaton. Knowledge, like a magnet, draws more knowledge to itself, even if it be erroneous input, and by the second century before the so-called Christian Era the city of Alexandria had become a veritable metropolis of books.
In addition to numerous private libraries collected by specialists in various departments of learning, and the secret collections written in the hieratic glyphs of the priests, there were two immense public collections. The largest of these was the Brucheum which formed a branch of the national Museum of Antiquities; it contained some , papyri, vellums, tablets, and inscriptions, magnificently arranged in the niches and wings of a great rotunda-like gallery.
Do you see how much more vastly disinformation can flow this day? The second and smaller public collection, devoted almost exclusively to obscure forms of knowledge and therefore probably of greater practical value, was contained in the temple of Serapis, the patron deity of the Ptolemies.
This building, called the Serapeum, housed 42, rolls preserved in fireproof containers shaped somewhat like buckets with tightly fitted lids. The various private collections brought the total number of priceless literary treasures in Alexandria to a figure exceeding one million documents. This was a mighty feat in accomplishment even if not pure in intent or content. It is difficult to compare this ancient collection with any modern library. The REAL blueprints were kept in even more hidden places. How interesting that one could not purchase an Alexandrian collection at any price today.
Again, not because of its quality of knowledge implied—but because of its antiquity—which instructions were destructive then and have only been built upon since the writings. How did the Alexandria Library actually fall into destruction? Well, it probably differs a bit from what you perceive and have been told. It was NOT deliberately burned as is assumed.
In the first century B. Caesar ordered the burning of the fleet in the harbor of Alexandria. A strong wind rose, the fire reached the docks and spread. Before the conflagration could be checked it had destroyed the Brucheum and the greater part of the city. When Cleopatra entered Alexandria under the favor of Caesar, she ordered herself carried to the ruins of the great library. She beheld a veritable mountain of charred manuscripts and rolls, and the Queen of the Sun cursed her ancestors that they had not made adequate provision to protect the library from fire.
She knew a good antique when she saw one. The burning of the Brucheum was regarded by the Egyptians as a national disaster and by way of atonement Rome presented to Cleopatra several valuable collections of manuscripts which it had accumulated from conquered peoples. Mark Antony was especially active in the restoration of the Brucheum.
Surely enough—the new rulers could rewrite history to suit themselves. The great Alexandrian libraries were a second time destroyed by Aurelian about A. The Serapeum was completely razed by the Christians in A.
The colossal statue of the weeping god Serapis which stood in the midst of the Serapeum also was demolished at this time. Alexandria never entirely recovered from the third catastrophe. The love of learning lingered on, however, until the last of the great collections was entirely wiped out by Amru the Saracen in A. And knowledge has continued its decline ever since at the hands of liars and despots.
If it were asked what humanity has lost through the destruction of the Alexandrian libraries, it will be said that after Alexandria came the Dark Ages—the total eclipse of essential learning. Today a hundred branches of art, science, philosophy, and religion are laboring franticly and painfully to restore that which was wrong and incorrect in the first place.
Wake up little sheeple, the barn is on fire! The origin of races, philosophies, religions, and sciences—the accumulated knowledge of the lost Atlantis—and the story of its final destruction, when, according to the Mayans, it sank some ten to twelve thousand or so, years ago, carrying sixty millions of souls into transition in a single night—not to mention the slow decay and degradation of the experience. Thus the most precious secrets of human origin, to which you have recovered only the faintest clues, vanished in smoke. However, I can promise you that by this day—there would be nothing of Truth to be found within those vaults at any rate.
I sincerely hope that you ones will go and read of the times of Alexander, Alexandria and the Khazarians in the JOURNALS for you have been given lies instead of rebirthing of Truth through those destructions of ancient times. To connect the stories it may appear that I jump hither and yon in my outlay of input.
I must do this because there are ones in receiving who are being given their instructions and confirmations in bits and pieces and those ones are scattered to the various critical locations for service and guardianship of that which was laid safe against this day of transition, coming into KNOWING and passage of a remnant—a return of the Bird Tribes, if you will.
Just as distinct, little beings work together to produce each completed human cell, there are spirit beings designed to work in symbiotic cooperation with each human ego. There are many names for US. We have been called angels, Bird Tribes, bird people, higher selves, hoksedas, spirits of the stars and thus and so. The reality of what we are is more than a name can convey.
We are the multiple projections of the Eternal One, spirits designed to blend with present day humans. You are individualized aspects of one holy and eternal Being. You do not evolve—you incarnate. You need us of the guides to be whole, just as we need you to fully enter and do our work in the physical plane as we fulfill our purpose.
We all seek to awaken in your minds and hearts, to incarnate in your bodies that you might realize the purpose and intent of your journey. You ego-ruled humans who feud and fight among yourselves do not realize the obvious: the very values that you employ to determine your social behavior, would, if employed by your body parts, effectively block any cooperative association of ribosomes, enzymes, mitochondria and other little life forms of crys alline life-force from providing you with even a single coherent cell, to say nothing of a healthy and integral human body.
Hundreds of thousands of little beings, all working voluntarily together, make a human body what it is. It is not a case of survival of the fittest, you must come to see, as your belief systems, based on short-term observation of the universe verifies—or seems to verify. It is rather a case of flourishment of the most cooperative, as all long-term observation of the universe verifies.
It is through cooperation with one another that diverse forms of life adapt and thrive. And it is only through the symbiotic cooperation of a multitude of simpler organisms that more complex organisms like your bodies are able to come into existence at all. At critical stages in their development, life forms cooperate for their own advantage with other separate and distinct life forms. Over time their cooperation results in union.
A new organism comes into being.

Again and again this occurs in the formation of complex life forms. This is analogous to what is about to happen again as your late 20th century human world reaches the optimal moment for materially oriented, ego-ruled human beings to be joined by their spirit world counterparts—US! Your race is soon to experience widespread awakenings, or as some will see it, a massive descent of beings from the stars.
We represent the dreams of the Great Spirit, the true dreams, the Truth, the clear dreams, the pure dreams, never tainted by fear, never touched by any motivation other than the motivation of love; and yet, we are dreams nevertheless. Discarnate beings drifting formless through a universe that has placed the highest value on form, living in the consciousness of a Creator whose desire is to take form in the very creature that will result from our bonding with you in an effort to help you remember what and who you ARE. We are sent come to remind you and again bring Knowledge, Truth and Wisdom within your beings that you can find your way back within the infinite circle of reality.
Our spiritual intelligence is the missing dimension, the rejected aspect, of your own wholeness. For thousands of years, you have been afraid of us. Many of you are now learning that you have nothing to lose and everything to gain by establishing contact with us once again. It is only your ego that makes you fear. Your ego is here to look after your physical body, to make sure it gets enough to eat, to make sure it does not walk over the edge of a cliff or damage itself unknowingly.
The end of life evokes questions. What does it mean to grow old? What happens when one dies? How does one cope with old age and death? These questions were as relevant for individuals and societies in earlier periods as they are in the present. The aim of this collection of articles is to cross the boundaries that have traditionally isolated different time periods and scholarly disciplines from each other.
The volume focuses on aging, old age, and death from Classical Antiquity to the Middle Ages.
