Saw Allen in Ann Arbor along with Patti Smith and her band back in the early 90's. She introduced Ginsberg as "The Godfather of us all" - met with wild, fanatical cheering. Fantastic show, amazing man! Missed, very much.

I am interested as well. Not quite there yet, but 50's are certainly coming and I would most appreciate the opportunity to learn anything that might be useful! Thank you for working this out - a great idea! Blessings

Another milestone! Congrats to you Robert on not only a successful site, but maintaining that personal, 'little cantina' atmosphere :)

And as we review DOMA at entry of this fine, June 2013 Mercury retrograde, the legislation of morality is dealt a healthy blow. Kudos to the Supreme Court for recognizing the equality of all who love.

Timely, as always... As I catch up on my spiritual reading which I've avoided over the last several months not even knowing why... As I accept an offer to be a "script finisher" with a new production company which simulanteously makes my heart sing and my nerves raw... As the love of my life finally, for the first time quits nicotine completely - no gum and no patches which he's been indulging in since quitting smoking nearly 2 years ago and I want to throw a pack of smokes at him... Timely, as always, my friend. Aum and blessings.

Yay! Congratulations, Sir! And a nod to all who visit. It's good to know there are others in the world who want to hear/read good messages about love and light. Peace!

I think we chatted about the volatility of this coming month with particular focus on decisions to be made and life changes that have to be addressed. Heck, your recent article on the New Moon in Sag you even say "Here we send or receive higher knowledge, and have the ability and duty to learn how to “pull out of nose dives,” or learn how to play with inertia, gravity, or momentum in some way, demonstrating “mind over matter.” " Bottom line, you have said - repeatedly - as have others in your profession that while the Universe places certain framework around our day to day via conditions present when we are born, we still have the God given brain with which to make decisions about what we do within that framework. This had to have been a deeply troubled individual. To not be able to maintain the self-control to refrain from acting on these heinous and possibly well-thought out plans? His freewill was gone, erroded or ignored. I am so very sad for them all. We, too, have been and will continue to meditate and pray on life, death, children as we as prayers asking for guidance on how we as people of this Earth might make real changes to ensure this does not happen again. Change is beckoning - are we listening?

Tax the bullets AND make folks register to purchase them AND produce verification they have the weapons that will utilize this ammo - just a few ideas. We shouldn't be able to walk into Walmart and buy bullets on discount. Additionally, a whole lot of gun right advocates also agree that current background checks are woefully inadequate and believe that we need to close gunshow loopholes that allow folks who really ought not own weapons to get them with relative ease. I think it's time to quit having the "guns vs no guns" argument. It has gotten us nowhere. It is time, though, to bring intelligent folks from both sides of the fence (not the far enders, BTW) to come to some middle of the road agreement about how we can maintain our right to bear arms as provided in our constitution but do so in such a way we minimize those who commit these heinous acts whether public mass murders or gangbangers killing each other on the streets of our cities. I do not recall a recent instant where in one of these situations that law-abiding, responsible gun owners were shooters. Most responsible gun owners are tired of the fingers being pointed at them and want the bloodshed to end, too. Get everyone to the table who is willing to discuss this topic rationally and intelligently. NRA leadership should not show up - they need to send a batch from their general membership. Gun control advocates need not show either - folks who are just tired of the violence and willing to meet half way will be the ticket. And let's start with making ammo financially out of reach for most instead of offering it as a KMart bluelight special. And we can go from there...

Wow! A blast from the past. I used to pull out Matt's video whenever I felt kinda down. Haven't done it in a while. Thank you!

I was very excited to hear this news. Particularly because unicorns are very peaceful, sensitive creatures which require absolute quiet and good vibes - as in: no nuclear test explosions, no military marching and no human rights abuses. I hope they keep that lair happy and healthy for all eternity :) Blessings to all!

I'm not sure what specific date the GOP decided that "moderate" equated "evil mongering", but they would do themselves a mondo favor re-learning all the stuff they learned in Kindergarten about inclusion, getting along, not stealing, telling the truth and being OK with having an opinion even if it's not something the teacher wanted to hear (ie individuality). They are on a slippery slope - not a bad thing if that slope is one that blows the 2-party system apart so that more choices are available to the masses. But well called, Robert! I never cease to be impressed with how spot on you are. While getting directly involved politics again might not be such a good idea, maybe a 42nd career in political news broadcasting might be kinda fun, huh? Blessings to all. Let the silence of the landlines begin.

Sadly, I find those that self profess loudest to be right at God's side and able to know that which is meant by God's Will to be the least Christian/religious folks of all. I would bet a large sum that a little digging into both of these individuals' lives would reveal some very shocking details. It pains me also that these folks are given money and audience to continue spouting off their hateful, ill-conceived poison where genuine followers of faith, love, light, tolerance, acceptance and the spirit really have to struggle sometimes to get their message heard. I keep hoping that the coming times will unveil the thinly disguised evils that are plaguing the world right now, and people begin to make the changes necessary to live a good and right life without interfering with the rights of others. And I'm not talking about apocalyptic stuff - just good, old fashioned 'lightbulb is now on' kind of stuff. Thank you for posting the Post piece, Robert.

One of the other ways fraud is occurring appears that certain GOP candidates are funding, um, let's call them "mostly imaginary" candidates in an effort to split up the Democratic vote in their districts (enabling a win). I saw 2 instances of this recently already - one in Florida and one in Michigan. Look up FL Republican David Rivera and MI Republican Roy Schmidt. Interesting stories. Underscoring Robert's advice of making sure you are properly registered and know where you are supposed to vote, please make sure you know who you are voting for and why. Real candidates will have a platform of some kind for you to peruse. The mostly imaginary candidates will have nothing to say. Thanks again for the reminders, Robert. We certainly appreciate it!

I am always disturbed by the term "atheist". I find it very hard to believe that folks who are self-proclaimed ahteists have never been moved spiritually in any way - simple things, like trying to explain why the cat knows when you're sick, how you can feel someone watching you even when you can't see them, knowing your kids are in trouble even when there is no apparent indication - it seems to me that atheists spend more time expounding on that which they demand "proof" and forget all the little things around them that occur daily give an enormous amount of the proof they seek if they would open themselves to the spiritual world a bit. It certainly sounds as though A has a very specific idea of what "God" is that A can reject so outwardly and succinctly. I wonder what other parts of A's world are that black and white. These types of folks are really no different than the fundamental Christians who take "God" and "the Bible" so literally that they, too, are ruled by black and white; when words and actions don't match their "beliefs", well, their pat answer is that "we're all sinners" so they can still fall within the walls of their deity as well. I generally feel very sorry for folks who are so militant in any belief - by definition those people who live that way are so sure things are the way they believe that over time they tend to lose the ability to discern incoming information that might help them live a better and happier life. Very sad. Hopefully, as the Age of Aquarius approaches, we will see more openness to things that are different, and become more open to and connected with our environment and everything here on Earth and beyond.

Egads! You mean I'm not alone in this right now? Transition has been going on a few months - so much so that I'm only just catching up on things. Being forced out early from an outstanding and very successful career I love(d) due to health reasons, and realizing with some sadness that my job may well have been the source of my personal grounding - clearly not a good thing. Part of my in between journey has involved picking up the pieces and re-emersing myself in positive energy thoughts, activies and my loved ones, all of which should have been grounding me all along. Stinks when the workaholic hits rock bottom... ...On the other hand, I'm being given this opportunity to have a second chance at "what do I want to be when I grow up". This is a blessing that many never get, especially when serious health issues intervene. I sincerely hope the rest of you who currently find yourselves in between life chapters are getting the same opportunity to re-evaluate, rewrite and renew the rest of your lives also. Thank you again, Robert, for another very timely posting. Peace & blessings to you all.

I saw DP in Detroit, 1982. Jon Lord did an organ solo to beat all - 20 minutes of him playing Bach with a laser show. Incredible! I speak of it often when talking to people about one of the most memorable shows I ever saw. RIP Jon Lord. Music will miss you greatly.

George Santayana - "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to fulfill it" G - Unfortunately, in my opinion, those in charge seem to fail to either read history books, understand stories from their elders, or just want to make names for themselves no matter the cost. If we embrace and incorporate into our lives that which we already have learned, then we really have learned it. Reminders are a welcomed force in our lives - since we are human, we do tend to forget. Rules and life's lessons are timeless and really have nothing to do with the changing tides of energy - the energies just change how forgetting is manifested in our world. Besides, there is nothing like watching a repeat of your favorite TV show, ya know? Blessings, all.

Another inspirational article, Robert. And a doozy, too. I am currently struggling with these things and, as usual, you have again timely framed the picture... Am trying to embrace in a nutshell what you phrased "Be as noble, inspired, loving, creative, and naturally expressive as you can be, as long as it leads to strength and a feeling of union with others in a larger field of light/life." Have been waking up daily for the last week+ furiously writing down dreams/fragments, reminding myself of this because I'm concurrently dealing with "Other important lessons are to refuse all underhanded, secret, or counterproductive risks, gambles, and opportunities that will not yield results that are in your best interests." I am hoping by repeating my daily affirmation as often as I can, that maybe it will be easier to breathe. It's a difficult human experience and life lesson to remain in the present and be open to light and love when a single, solitary person can cause massive chaos and destruction to so many. Protecting myself and my loved ones is easy; trying to protect a mass of folks I care about or am merely aquainted with is much more difficult. And while it may not be my job to help a mass of others deal with a destructive personality (ie they are all big boys/girls and can take care of themselves), the "job" seems to be falling on my shoulders whether it's mine or not. Feels kinda like when we were kids and teachers would ask for a volunteer and all the other kids would step back, leaving you there alone - exposed and "volunteered". "Feel light, exude kindness, openly express/receive love and embrace being a lucky/loving black kitty..." vs "Godzilla the Hun". It's been an interesting ride to say the least.

Ha! Couldn't wait to get here and see what you wrote, Robert. Appreciate the background info.... I had to laugh when I saw the "new" configs...always knew I was a Leo, ya know, in my Virgo sort of way... ;) We had a good laugh. Thanks again!

Was just having this conversation with my SO not long ago. I live near Lake Huron, across from Canada, in a small town. We have made note over the years of how many more dead fish we find at our beaches - sometimes to the point where the beach can't be enjoyed, even though attempts are made to clean the sand every day. Beaches from one summer to the next are so full of e-coli and other stuff they actually close for chunks of the summer. We actually have a warning system in place - short 15 second alarms = voluntary fire department; 2 minute alarm = tornado/take cover; 10 minute alarm in 2 minute bursts = dumping of chemicals into the local river. And that's when the multiple chemical companies (US and Canada) along the water actually CHOOSE to pay the FEE to alert the population. Funny enough, it's actually cheaper for them to pay the FINE for NOT telling anyone they are dumping - if they get caught. And by the time the crap in the water is actually detected, well, which of the multitude of chemical plants did it, right? Living near the largest fresh water ecosystem in the world is a wonderful, beautiful thing. Realizing that it may not be long the only thing you will be able to fish out of it is mercury-laden zebra mussels, well...

God bless you. Am in midst of similar journey - albeit not in same locations. We are on path of something new - exciting. Think the "hippies" of the 60's 70's may have been too early - it's happening! New and NOW! Yea! Bless you and your friends/family and those of us on your little canteena... BLC

I second Caliban - WOW!! Interesting that sometimes we require messages more than once, and how willing our higher selves give said messages. Not just for people being willfully ignorant causing pain and turmoil, but the willfully ignorant who hurt themselves by not learning, listening, embracing the light. It took a SOLID 30 years for me to find a semblance of inner peace. I put myself in the path of a lot of wilfully ignorant people; apparently I needed to be beaten over the head a lot to listen AND respond/respect to my own higher self. And accept my guilty plea for something that rolled past my ignorance years ago into full-fledged wilfullness of harming myself by not 'paying attention'. I love how you have outlined this process, Robert. Thank you sooo much for your guidance and light. Blessings.
