Millions Mourn for Sathya Sai Baba-a Hindu Spiritual Leader and Teacher.

Just in case you missed this, I wanted to share with you the transition of another great spiritual teacher--Sathya Sai Baba. I was always fascinated by the stories I heard about his supernatural powers and teachings. If you want to find out more about Sai Baba, I recommend that you read: Sai Baba: The Ultimate Experience by Phyliss Krystal and The Life and Teachngs of Sai jBaba of Sherdi by Antonio Rigopoulos.   

PUTTAPARTHI, India (AFP) –

Sathya Sai Baba, one of India's most famous gurus, died in hospital on Sunday, triggering a global outpouring of grief and tributes from devotees across politics, sport and entertainment.
He was 85 and finally succumbed to multiple organ failure after being in a critical condition for more than three weeks, his doctors said.
Thousands of Hindu followers massed at the Institute of Higher Medical Sciences hospital where Sai Baba had been treated in his hometown of Puttaparthi, in the southern state of Andhra Pradesh.
Police used barriers to hold back crowds of mourners and appealed for public calm after the death was announced.
"Sai Baba is no more with us physically. He breathed his last at 7:40 am and died due to cardio-respiratory failure," a statement from the hospital said. "His body will be kept for public worship for two days on Monday and Tuesday."
Devotees had congregated in the town over recent weeks to hold special prayers asking for a miracle to allow Sai Baba to recover.
He was credited by millions of people across the globe with having supernatural powers, including an ability to conjure objects out of thin air, remember past lives and cure terminal diseases.
Instantly recognisable for his wild curly hair and saffron robes, he was followed by politicians, judges and generals in India as well as cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar, Hollywood star Goldie Hawn and legions of the poor.
Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said the nation would deeply mourn the death of Sai Baba, who "was an inspiration to people of all faiths."
"He was a spiritual leader who inspired millions to lead a moral and meaningful life," Singh said, adding that the softly-spoken guru taught "the universal ideals of truth, right conduct, peace, love and non-violence."
Tendulkar had earlier said on his Twitter page that he was praying for Sai Baba's health and asked others to join him.
The guru claimed to be the reincarnation of a former holy man, Sai Baba of Shirdi, who died in 1918.
His organisation has funded health and education projects in India, including hospitals and clinics that say they are able to cure ailments beyond the capabilities of mainstream medicine.
From his ashram in Puttaparthi, he established schools and centres that spread his influence worldwide.
Among his supporters was the former owner of the Hard Rock Cafe chain of restaurants, Isaac Burton Tigrett, who went to live in Puttaparthi and donated much of his fortune to the Sai Baba trust.
Puttaparthi grew from a village into a major pilgrimage town, boasting a university and even an airport as Westerners, Indian students and the destitute clamoured to be close to a man they saw as an incarnation of God in human form.
As well as hospitals and clinics, the Sai Baba organisation operates drinking water schemes, a museum, a planetarium and an international network of prayer rooms.
At public meetings, his showman antics in which he would miraculously produce gold coins or watches on stage brought him both fame and notoriety, with critics accusing him of being a fraudster.
He also faced allegations of sexual abuse of young male followers, which his opponents said were ignored by Indian authorities due to his power and popularity.
His death on Sunday was covered by Indian television news channels with reverence as interviewees remembered meetings with Sai Baba, his apparent miracles and long record of charitable giving.
"He was more than a teacher, friend or husband," said Kiran Nanda, a follower for 40 years. "In many ways, big and small, he showed his compassion and love for all humans. His work was his message."
Among the Bollywood stars paying tribute was Vivek Oberoi who said that "the body is merely a vehicle. His spirit will continue to guide us as always."
The future of Sai Baba's hugely wealthy trust, which is funded by donations and has been criticised for lack of transparency, is uncertain and some observers predict a power struggle among his closest aides.
Sai Baba had used a wheelchair since 2005 and made fewer public appearances after fracturing his hip in 2006.
His body will be buried on Wednesday in line with the practice for spiritual leaders in India in contrast to the regular Hindu custom of cremation.

ANCHI Crystal-Hoax or Miracle Stone




Click Here for Part 2 http://youtu.be/o7QvDu2rVJ

Have you heard about the ANCHI crystal? It is suppose to prevent or cure an assault on the human body from radiation, plus performing several other miracles. Because of the recent incidents in Japan with the nuclear plants and leaking radiation, I decided to find out more about the ANCHI crystal; after all we have 104 plants in the US. So, what did I find out? I emailed, Jim Heinen of Treasure of the Earth and asked him about this crystal and if he had any for sale. He replied,” Have never heard of them. But I don't know everything. I usually approach with caution when I'm told that a crystal can be found in only 1 location and it has a high price. In the article below they get $79 for 2 very small crystals. Take a moment for discernment before ordering. If it turns out to be something unique, I will be glad to hear your report. I'm always ready to learn something new.” http://www.crystalsrocksandgems.com/Healing_Crystals/AnchiCrystals.html


Now I’m really curious about this crystal that hasn’t gained the popularity you would think it should have in today’s turmoil climate. My next search led me to an email I had received from Janice Brown an associate of the Metaforms.net-sacred geometric sculptures company by Gregory Hoag. I had met Gregory years ago at a sacred geometry conference in Sedona, Arizona and purchased one of his ePendants and two Metaforms for my home. You can go to his website at Metaforms.net or http://tinyurl.com/4uzcont to find out more about his Metaforms and the ANCHI crystals. I trust Gregory’s recommendation, but I still wanted to find out more about this crystal.

ANCHI is publicized as an ancient crystal with encoded mysteries and found in only one location in the world. This is where the story gets very interesting. You never discover the name of the location. What you do learn is that the crystals organize water. When water is exposed to ANCHI crystal the molecules align themselves with the crystal to create healthful and positive benefits. The story of ANCHI crystal can be found at this website: http://www.metaforms.net/pdfs/ANCHI_Crystal_Story.pdf or you can watch the videos. I plan to purchase a bag of crystals, and of course, I’ll let you know my findings. If you have had any experiences with ANCHI crystals let me know.

Planned Parenthood and The Goddess Energy





You can't go anywhere in DC before the conversation turns to the 2011 and 2012 Budget and the battle between the Republican and the Democratic parties. Like most people in this powerful town, I, too, was glued to the newsmedia and watched the battle with fascination. Last week they were fighting over a rider that would affect women's health care. The Republicans wanted to cut the funding of Planned Parenthood. For a moment I thought I was in the Dark Ages. Then I remembered that we are still in a patriarchal society that is fighting to hold on to its power.

We always have to look at the hidden energy behind any physical event in this reality. Symbolically, this budget rider represented the reality whereby men are the decision-makers and hold positions of power and prestige and define reality. Unfortunately their reality doesn't give women equal rights. Have you noticed that it is those patriarchal societies that have contempt for women and try to prevent women from emancipating themselves are the ones having the most difficulties in today's world? Not funding Planned Parenthood is just another example of too much male energy dominating the world and creating an imbalance in male and female energies. To restore the balance,  a new reality or a shift in human consciousness is being birth as a dynamic female energy flows through the universe. It's not about power over one or the other; it's about balance.

The symbol for the Goddess energy is the powerful geometrical shape-- the Vesica Pisces. The Vesica Pisces is the intersecting of two overlapping spheres, representing the woman's womb and her ability to give birth. Like the numerical 11:11, it is an awaking symbol to higher consciousness. So, don't be surprised if you see this symbol everywhere. It is a reminder of a new reality of love, harmony and balance being birth in the midst of all the global turmoil.

In Honor of National Poetry Month Selected Poems

One went to the door of the Beloved and
knocked. A voice asked, 'Who is there?'
He answered, 'It is I.' The voice said, 'There is no room for Me and Thee.'
The door was shut.After a year of solitude and deprivation he returned and knocked.
A voice from within asked, 'Who is there?'
The man said, 'It is Thee.'
The door was opened for him.
-- Jelaluddin Rumi



A CRUST of bread and a corner to sleep in,
A minute to smile and an hour to weep in,
A pint of joy to a peck of trouble,
And never a laugh but the moans come double;
     And that is life!

A crust and a corner that love makes precious,
With a smile to warm and the tears to refresh us;
And joy seems sweeter when cares come after,
And a moan is the finest of foils for laughter;
     And that is life!

            ~Paul Lawrence Dunbar


The Road Not Taken
     
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
          ~Robert Frost

April 4, 20011-April 13, 2011, and April 22, 2011 = 444

REPRINT FROM PATHTOTRUTH EZINE.

How powerful can this be that Earth Day is going to be celebrated on a day that has triple fours? This will definitely be a special day. Earth Day is the time we stop and honor the planet and commit to going green. We can't afford to  take our natural resources for granted. In decades to come we won't have clean air or wate if we don't take care of our environment now. The catastrophic event of the nuclear reactors in Japan is a wake-up call for humanity to  revisit the issue of nuclear energy. We must ask the question is it in harmony and balance with the planet and its inhabitants?

Numerically, the single digit 4 represents structure, time, and the earth. The numbers of this day are not by chance; its a symbolic message from the Divine Mind. 444 is about angle love and protection. This will be a powerful day as thousands of angels surround the planet. The angels will come to reassure us that Divine Protection is with us no matter how unsettling things might get in this revoluntary cycle. It reminds me of the verse in the Christian Bibe: He will give His angels charge of you. Psalm 91:11

For those of us who are sensitive to Earth energies, we will be able to hear the angelic music and perhaps have contact with one or two of them. Remember they come in many forms and always assist us to reach our highest good. Be open and receptive to their magnificent energy.

THE SHIFT






Who will lead her? Who will show her the way? In a world gone crazy. ~Shelley Moringsong

The media has been full of headlines about dead birds falling from the sky; dead fish washing up on the shores; 8.9 earthquake and catastrophic tsunami devastating Japan; damaged nuclear reactors in Japan leaking radiation; and the Middle East and countries in Northern Africa experiencing a movement that has no leader or face just a strong desire by the people for truth and freedom.

Albert Einstein stated that humankind cannot solve its problems from the same place of consciousness in which we created them. A new place of consciousness is required.  Many people believe that the birth of this new consciousness of love and harmony or one unified collective consciousness of peace will happen on December 22, 2012. Watch the video and hear what others have to say about the shift in consciousness. It is happening everywhere.
