A SHORT STORY

I wrote and published this sci fi short story a few years ago (under a different title) when the human population was only 7.4 billion:

(1st published 4th April 2017)

It is now  8 billion.

Our cultural norms and the Protestant Ethic are causing the extinction of all life.

I wrote this as social satire and sympathetic magic

I realize my writing style doesn’t fit what people expect

My excuse –I majored in sociology not literature 😛

I wanted to put my idea that humans are not indigenous to the planet.

EVERY DAY IN EVERY WAY I AM BETTER AND BETTER

FROM FACEBOOK

In my nursing days I was objectively aware that frustration and being treated with contempt  was/is an issue for the elderly and disabled (for patients; residents; clients)

I have always treated people with respect regardless of disability; race; age; sex; sexual preference; religion etc.

A couple examples:

One young lady who suffered with Freidriech Ataxia when she changed service providers said that she would not change unless they hired me.

I thought “I am not that good!” and then I met her other carers who were so patronising.

When I worked in a major hospital I was told off for spoiling patient when all I was doing was treating them like people.

I am now old, disabled and overweight so am subjectively aware of frustration and being treated with contempt.

BUT with age comes wisdom and I am  determined to be healthier and slimmer using affirmations: diet and doing what exercises that am able to do.

Plus I am grateful for where I live and for all the trees and birds in my garden and for friends and family that help and support me.

“BELIEVE IN THE POSSIBILITY OF WHAT YOU INTEND TO DO, HOLD IT STRONGLY IN YOUR MIND AND IT WILL HAPPEN”

Magic — creating our own reality

this picture is from Facebook

I believed we created our own reality by our thoughts; words and of course actions in the 1970s:

I taught “would be witches” how to manifest!

A couple of years ago I spat the dummy and thought:

“What a load of crock! If I created reality my life would have been so much better.

Who’d choose to suffer almost a life time of abuse etc!”

What about people with disabilities?

Since I first wrote this blog a concept came into my head when meditating

Our cultural programming stops us from feeling empowered

The concept of an hierarchical  structure:

that there is someone who knows better

and is more important.

In this meditation I also “got” that seeing time as linear affects our ability to create

Our indigenous Australians did  not see time as linear (until white man came and spoiled their world)

And they have powerful magic

THE WAY OF THE PEACEFUL WARRIOR

I constantly have to remind myself to be in the “NOW

From “The Way Of The Peaceful Warrior:

by Dan Millman

“Where am I? HERE!”

What time is it “NOW”

Earlier this year my *guide “told” me that I really do create my reality (it was actually a concept).

After a decade of constant pain:

sleep deprivation:

and other health issues

that prevent my doing things that  I once took for granted

I was definitely in “poor me” mode!

 Reiki:  affirmations and  acupuncture lasted a day or two but it was “one step forward and two steps back“.

(*This guide whom I have been aware of since I started with the spiritual groups has given me proof of who he is

and

has taken me on astral journeys with him in his life time.

We were in an Egyptian reed canoe.

Which I later checked in the library because my idea of Egypt came from the movie “Cleopatra” and I was expecting lavish barges.

I brought myself out of this “astral journey?” because it was too violent for me. We were in a battle zone.

 One thing that really amazed me was-

back in the seventies pyramid power was a fad.

I asked my guide who is a Nubian Egyptian about pyramids.

He told me that pyramids refract electromagnetic waves as a prism refracts light.

I had no idea what electromagnetic waves were and in the nineteen seventies it was difficult to find information.)

THE WITCHES PYRAMID

(from my Book Of Shadows)

“TO KNOW: TO DARE:  TO WILL and TO KEEP SILENT”

TO KNOW: This includes knowing the laws you are working with; e.g. Law of cause and effect:

The more I know; the less I know that I know

which may seem “Irish”

but seriously I certainly don’t understand the nature of this reality!

Know ones self: and most importantly know that you will succeed in your undertaking.

TO DARE: overcome fears and hindrances especially those inculcated by our culture.

TO WILL: Emotions are the power behind manifesting.

So believe in yourself:

Intention is what directs the manifestation.

My manifestations have succeeded when I have known they will manifest.

Actually I see them as already manifested.

In the beginning I found this part difficult so I had this attitude “I believe this will happen/ manifest but if it doesn’t I don’t care “ And they manifested.

Another way is to inculcate what you are trying to manifest. Use a verbal spell or word power: record this and play it continually -Make it a song if you like.

TO KEEP SILENT: Other peoples thoughts and words will effect what you are doing so you don’t tell anyone!

me at the very first Australian Wiccan conference–early 1980s

I snapped my self out of my “What a lot of crock?” attitude by reminding myself of all the things that I have manifested.

Considering I started doing this in the late seventies there are numerous examples.

The one I would like to share is about a puppy/dog:

My parents (now deceased) lived in a very small housing Trust unit. There was a back “yard” which all units were meant to share. Their neighbour on the western side had fenced of his back yard and also bricked up most of the space as a garden. They had gotten numerous small dogs all of which managed to get out some how and run away. They eventually got a Labrador pup. Which was mostly locked in a wooden box he called its kennel! One day when this pup was actually out of the box and growing I noticed blood around her neck . Her collar was too tight and cutting her neck as she grew I reached through the fence and loosened her collar. After this, the neighbour put barbed wire on the fence at many levels so that there was no way I could reach the dog!

My mother insisted that I wasn’t to call the RSPCA because she didn’t want conflict with their neighbours.  I always did what my mother said. I was terrified of her.

I had this dog on my healing list and started to visualize her living happily with a new owner.

Unfortunately it was approximately six months before this manifested.

My parents neighbour offered the dog to me!

I had a Bully/ Kelpie cross at this time, who was so grumpy to Cerri the dog:  Doing his “I’m top dog here routine” That I knew it wasn’t a good home for her. Her eyes were glazed with fear. I mentioned it to a local business owner and she said that she would take the dog to live on their property. ( My dog fretted for weeks after she Cerri left.)

I dont have any pictures of Cerri but this is Buster

Cerri hada long and happy life: is nowdeceased.

Sadly I don’t have any picture of Cerri I was more worried about getting her well than taking her photo at the time.

BLESSED BE

IN DEFENSE OF CATS

2 cats and a dog

8 BILLION HUMANS ARE CONTINUING TO CAUSE THE EXTINCTIONOF ALL OTHER LIFE

But instead of implementing zero population growth we blame cats

Since the 16th century, humans have driven at least 680 vertebrate species to extinction.

Our cultural norms and attitudes cause us to destroy trees insects and creatures we label as vermin

Because we think they are not sentient

The platypus is on the verge of extinction

from national geographic

This heritage bushland was set alight:

Soon after it was real estate development:

Real Estate companies pay the fines associated with destroying heritage bush land because they make heaps more money than the fine.

In this case they were not fined at all because it was supposedly an accident.

When I was young I believed that a few people could make a difference and from a sociological point of view the more people that want something to change  the more likely the change will happen.

But I have learned over the years that multinationals rule the world and humans believe that they are the only species that matters and the only species that has feelings ☹

Our consumer society

and the industrial revolution have done so much damage:

along with this cultural attitude that only humans matter.

I wont kill anything:

I get upset when insects die.

I thank the wind, the rain and the vegetables etc that I eat:

One Christian woman patronisingly told me I should be thanking god (back in the days when didn’t have the self confidence to defend myself)

I believe everything that exists has a consciousness and deserves respect.

Population control as in zero population growth is essential.

Humans make up 99 percent of the of the world population.

 Hence only one percent is wildlife.

When I wrote and published my sci fi short story April 2017 the human population was 7.4 billion

It is now almost 8 billion.

VEGAN

This is a reblog — I am so encouraged these day by the number of people who care about other life forms


I found this picture years ago but do not know who to give the credit to.

In South Australia in the 1970’s and 80’s vegetarians and vegans were not catered for.

There was a cafe on the corner of Hindmarsh Square and Rundle Street Adelaide, called “Carrots” :

one restaurant that catered for vegans

and  a Lebanese restaurant  that offered a vegetarian platter.

The only vegetarian food one could buy was by Sanitarium

which was, and am guessing still is, owned by the Seventh-day Adventist church.

(And very much appreciated — Thank you Seventh Day Adventists)

We were ridiculed and abused by those in pubs, restaurants and people generally.

I made my own burghers using lentils, vegetable and bread crumbs and at a surprise birthday party for my (now ex) husband all the carnivores were eating these:

not realizing they had no meat.

I didn’t insist my family were vegetarian

I would make a vegetarian dish to share

and also cook meat.

If I ate meat I would have night mares about being an animal in a slaughter house.

I object to factory farming and production line slaughter.

Of course the reason the setup is this way is there are way to many humans.

I didn’t want to eat meat as a child:

for refusing I received a bashing from  my mother:

she threatened to have me put in a mental institution

and served me the same meal for breakfast lunch and tea until I ate it.

I have allowed myself to eat meat on a few occasions over the years usually because I was anaemic

The night mares return plus my digestive system doesn’t handle meat.

In this day and age when there are so many vegans, I never expected to be ridiculed but it has happened on several occasions.

I complimented one woman on having soy milk in her coffee and she abuse the hell out of me:
Said that she wasn’t vegan (which according to her is worse than leprosy ) she had soy milk because she liked it.

It is important to me that I am always honest so I must confess that sadly  I have only been  a part time vegan— but still vegetarian:

Hoping this time around I will stay vegan.

If I ate eggs I bought those produced locally as I have been to the farm where the chickens are and I would live where they live  😀

I cannot watch cooking shows:

Haven’t cooked meat for anyone since 1998

I am horrified that people think eating creature that is boiled alive is a treat.

A friend asked me why vegans avoid dairy :

I explained that the cows are kept continually pregnant:

the calves go to slaughter and their mothers know.

In my opinion the drug companies are worse than the meat industry.

In 1982 the husband of one of my staff asked me to report that suckie calves were left to die of dehydration & starvation.

I was told by someone who bought stock that

all new borns are just left to die that way.

In 1982 I reported what was told to me to the RSPCA who called me a liar and a trouble maker.

I put something inwriting but it was ignored.

Animal Liberation told me to write to my politician.

Nothing.

Years later an acquaintance who had worked in the abattoirs told me that the drug companies ask for this.

And my podiatrist  (an animal activist) told me that the drug companies collect hormones from this type of death.

People just don’t want to know.

I JUST SAW THIS ON FAWEBOOK — THIS IS MY OPINION

Blessed be

and be kind to non humans

I realize my writing style doesn’t fit what people expect

I started writing a prequel where humans were grown and harvested as livestock by the “gods” –keep losing my motivation but may finish it before I die

In the real world I am becoming more optimistic as there are so many thinking caring people

NAMASTE

THANKING OUR BODY

This is from  a meditation group that I attended in 1980 – the man running the group played the tape and I was able to get a copy

Unfortunately I no longer have this tape so cannot credit the lady who first recorded it

IF YOU ARE A MISFIT

YOU ARE PROBABLY AN ORIGINAL THINKER

Albert Einstein —- I have had this photo for years and cannot remember where I got it from — hence unable to acknowledge 😦

I know that I have posted this several times

It is usually motivated by someone preaching their stupidity

Without “misfits” things would never change

In the 1970s I was ridiculed for being a vegetarian –for being a member of Animal Liberation 

Greenpeace was considered a dangerous radical group and its member deviants

And women abused us for being in Women’s Liberation

Environmental groups have devolved into impotent bureaucracies and women’s lib has gone to ridiculous extremes —all we wanted was equal rights.

Plus attitudes haven’t changed much –So many people are horrified at the idea of zero population growth and quote horrors that have happened in China

Once upon a time the church would tell us what to think and do

Now it is the media

from FACEBOOK

HAIL TO THEE ORIGINAL THINKERS

From THE MATRIX

“Most of these people are not ready to be unplugged and many are so inured; so hopelessly dependant on the system that they will fight to protect it”

In the days when only white hetrosexual males had rights and status the mindless masses believed this was how thngs should be 😦

Original thinkers are no longer put to death

nor put in a mental institution:

they are just treated with contempt by mindless automatons.

Original thinkers see beyond their cultural programming:

OUR CULTURAL NORMS ARE MAKING ALL LIFE EXTINCT

The concept that only humans matter is so destructive to the ecology

chopping down trees:

culling other life forms because they are considered vermin or dangerous:

Destroying flora and fauna for real estate development:

thinking concrete is better than dirt:

refusing to implement zero population growth.

If you believe only humans matter you won’t like this story

I theorize that we are not even indigenous to the planet
