Affirmations …

The Self is always available, is always here.

There never was a time when the Self was not.

Do not make it complicated for yourself.

Simply return to what you were

by letting go of everything else.

By not reacting to the world.

By diving deep within, into the heart center

where the true reality awaits you.

You are a divine being, a spiritual being.

You are not the body or the mind.

Know yourself, be yourself!

Awaken to the Self!

Forget about reincarnation.

Reincarnation is not for you.

It is for the deluded ones.

You are free of all karma,

free of all samskaras,

free of playing games.

Feel your freedom.

All is Well.

– Robert Adams

Monday Astro Aspects

Tara Greene,Tarot Reader, Astrology, Psychic

May 27 Moon’s in PISCES were flowin along. I find Pisces Moon’s make me feel enervated-exhausted, tired, fatigued, Do you?

Pisces Moon makes sweet sextiles to Venus in Taurus Saturn in Capricorn and Pluto in Capricorn.  That’s nice and dreamy.

Moon squares Mercury in Gemini at night. You may be having conversations with the devil then angles all night,

Moon squares Jupiter in Sagittarius

the best square evah because Jupiter also rules Pisces. Get up and inspire the world.

Moon goes VOID OF COURSE in the evening in PDT and moon is Void of Course all day until May 28 @ 11:32 am PDT/ 2:32 pm EDT/ 6:32 pm GMT

You donʻt see it (even though itʻs in your face)

The Mana'o Blog


We believe what we are told, rather than who we are for real.

“In your face” means lots of things, not always something or someone is “in your face” the way we have been taught it means.

Sometimes, what is the truth, what is New is literally IN YOUR FACE…in your expressions and the way that you grimace or smile or talk without saying  word. Iʻm wordy, but, I Am one who talks elegantly without muttering a sound…itʻs called Hula…

You might have thought I was talking about American Sign Language or maybe some other way …but…nope – Hula. 

I speak Dance fluently.

And I do so without saying one damned word.

Lots of people do. Itʻs a thing with us Maolis….


As a species, the human race has chosen, for as long as we all have been taught and told to, that there is always someone better than…

Daily Words of the Buddha for May 26, 2019

Pāli Word a Day for May 26, 2019 — paṇḍita — wise, clever, skilled, circumspect, intelligent

Yo na hanti na ghāteti,
na jināti na jāpaye,
mettaṃso sabbabhūtānaṃ,
veraṃ tassa na kenacī.

One who does not strike nor makes others strike,
who robs not nor makes others rob,
sharing love with all that live,
finds enmity with none.

Itivuttaka 1.27
Gemstones of the Good Dhamma, compiled and translated by Ven. S. Dhammika

Energy Update | May 25, 2019

“Every interaction you have is governed by the orchestration of what’s called a soul contract. Which means you don’t meet anything or anyone by chance. A contract is created so that as two beings, two aspects of Divinity interact with one another, they are passing to each other energetically the files that they both need for their journey ahead and working out whatever needs to be worked out to bring about your highest potential in the shortest amount of time.”

– Matt Kahn

Lemurian Thoughts …

Believe us when we say that you, as members of the Family of Light, made a vast study of the historical manipulation that has been going on on this planet, just as anyone sent on assignment would be trained for a long period of time before they were sent out into the field. Each of you has been trained, and you have the knowledge inside you. Our part is to hit key chords and play your consciousness into activity so you can go ahead and make the tune or song or dance you are prepared for. Your knowledge is inside of you, and as you agree to discover it, it will awaken on deeper and deeper levels. You will become very self-sufficient, those of you who agree to this. You will also become incredibly knowledgeable, those of you who do not stop because you are frightened.

– Barbara Marciniak

Daily Words of the Buddha for May 25, 2019

Pāli Word a Day for May 25, 2019 — nissanga — unattached, unobstructed, disinterested, unselfish

Anatthajanano doso,
doso cittappakopano;
bhayamantarato jātaṃ
taṃ jano nāvabujjhati.

Hate brings great misfortune,
hate churns up and harms the mind;
this fearful danger deep within
most people do not understand.

Celtic Foodstyles | Traditional Scottish Tablet

HP David Crawford remembers his mother, Elizabeth Harrison Crawford, making good old Scottish Tablet, which was always a great surprise to find a tray like this waiting for him and his siblings upon arriving home feom school. 😀


1 Tin of Condensed Milk

2lb of sugar

large knob of butter

1 cup of milk

Optional: Vanilla or Whisky can be added towards the end

You will also need:

Baking Tray, lightly greased with butter

Heavy bottom pan

Hand Whisk/Wooden spoon


Add the sugar, milk & butter to the pan, heat slowly until it all comes together and butter melts. Then add the tin of condensed milk and bring the heat up slowly until mixture is boiling (Take care as it can get very very hot!! and does blister if you get splattered – believe it 🙂 !!)

Once mix is boiling turn down but keep mix on a steady “bubble” stirring constantly (I use a whisk as I have arthritis in my hands and find that easier than using wooden spoon, but you will find your own comfortable way of doing it!) It usually takes about 15-20 minutes and the mix will turn a golden brown colour, and when it starts to feel grainy against the side of the pan it’s ready to pour into the baking tray.

Leave to cool for around 10 minutes and then use a heavy sharp knife to cut through the mix into the required size you want. Leave to cool thoroughly and cut through the mix again to separate fully.

Eat and enjoy! Its 100% better than the shop bought stuff.

Card of the Day – 10 of Swords – Saturday, May 25, 2019

Tarot by Cecelia

Things are on the upswing today. This beautiful card reminds us that eventually that caterpillar gets its wings and transforms into a butterfly. Indeed, the recovery process which we have been discussing in recent months is well and truly underway.

All too often, people tend to view the 10 of Swords in a negative, stressful light, when, in fact, it is a reminder that hat goes down will rise up once again. Consider this the dawn of a new day, one where you can finally feel that you are putting the last seven years behind you. It may be a small light appearing, but soon, very soon, the new you will emerge for all to see.

See you here tomorrow!

Back To The Future | George Carlin on Abortion Truths

Tara Greene,Tarot Reader, Astrology, Psychic

This is devastatingly accurate truth and totally hilariously brilliant from George Carlin in 1996. “Not every ejaculation deserves a name.”

Jesus_is_coming.._Look_Busy_(George_Carlin).jpg: Bonnie from Kendall Park, NJ, USAderivative work: Hic et nuncderivative work Grey Geezer [CC BY-SA 2.0 (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0)%5DGeorge Carlin’s astrology chart is interesting.

Born May 12, 1937  in Manhattan NY 11:45 AM.

Sun, Mercury Retrorgade Uranus in Taurus MC in Taurus too. 

He had Saturn at 1 Aries on the “Big Bang” point and that was really his energy. Carling blew everyone up. Venus at 19 Aries – his rapid-fire delivery and totally independent act.

Interesting that Saturn and South Node are now at 19/20 degrees Capricorn squaring his Natal Venus in Aries. Carlin’s insights into abortion 23 years ago are exactly as relevant today. His values are timeless. 

PLUTO at 26 CANCER opposite Jupiter in Capricorn-square to Venus in Aries

this is very rich. Carlin had the most…
