Page 918 in Gooberz, Canto Twenty

and it is the 'I' and the 'O' --- those matching Snowflakes halves
eons ago, due to Original Sin, split into two pieces
which must reunite into ONE complete whole
while the male and female they then guide and control as Body Temples
remain as separate man and woman"

"this is entirely correct -- and in your drawing
is contained the seed of falsehood which has been
for so long inherent in the Hindu teaching of Oneness
but all this will be revealed to you
at the allotted time
for you are to write more than one Happiness poem"

Star Notes, February

Set was a god. He is still a god, de-frocked, but still a god. he goes by several names, like Satan, the Devil, Lucifer. His original and true identity IS A MIND BLOWING REVELATION,
as the apostles of the 60's would say, and will be deeply discussed in the sequel to Gooberz,
currently titled Twelfth Night Secrets, as I mentioned in my Introductory Star Notes Letter.

"more than one ? oh Heath, please!
I have not yet even completed the first"

"you will write Happiness pOem One -- called Gooberz
and then Happiness pOem -- Part two
it has been ordained, as I have said unto you"

"and will all these things to which you say
I shall be enlightened . . . at the allotted time
be told in my Happiness pOem you call Part Two ?"


they shall -- and Part Two shall swiftly follow Part One"

"don't be so certain, Heathcliffe
I'm struggling with the first Happiness pOem
and may never complete it -- let alone another"

"you will do so, for it has thus been ordained
you are being given this guidance
for the enlightenment of each sister and brother
all those Earthlings who are presently lost in the woods
who have wandered far away from Eden
and must be shown the way once more . . back home"

"I am still uncertain, but we shall see
can you guess what troubles me the very most
through mental telepathy ?"

"what troubles you concerns the longing
experienced by the separate halves
of each eons-ago divided symbolic Snowflake
while they remain lonely and apart
and the deep yearning these separated
Higher Angels feel -- to seek one another
but I must say . .
this required not telepathy . . for your need
is so visible on your features, as well as in your aura"

this is from my post on sVirgo's string about creativity...
I was editing my old post, because I could not post, but could still edit, get it??? lol


MARCH 7, 2008
I AM STILL NOT AUTHORIZED TO POST!

MARCH 7, 2008,

In the beginning, of this last beginning,
Isis and Osiris, were the seeders, of Our MOther Earth..The First Couple, the Lock and Key, The Sacred Marriage..
All was well, for a very long time...remember, they came from MALDEK-MAKE-MADE A DEAL-LEAD
Their planet had been destroyed..call in the U.S.S. Enterprise, we need to be moved...


okay back to the Creators...

Another race came..Adam and Eve, they took over, they banished Isis and Osiris, and their people, banished them to the desert..

ah, but they are MOther and Father God, in human form, they built the pyramids, and the sphinx's, and hid ALL the true information, also, they made copies and some things did survive..

Adam Eve(ning) like Sun(set, funny their son was named Seth, did Set, side with this new race? Yes..thus they re-created their own story, while the Truth was banished..Adam and Eve's god, is one of sacrifice..
they set up Set, to kill Osiris, in this god sacrifice belief, they changed the Truth, and starting Time, with the first sacirfice, They Sacrificed Our Father God, they even got Horus to turn on their MOther, he be-headed Isis, and she became Hathor,Hera

before this Rhea,
Earth=Heart=Rhea=Hera,
before this ISIS

LIFE=FILE
is contained in the Akashic Records, there is no escape from anything we have done, all is accounted for, and Our Star Born friends, help! Please Beam me Up, hehe

there is so much more to share, but in this fashion, not many will see what I have written,

I will keep,
My Promise for Tomorrow
and No MOre Sorrow.

The Truth in Ruth, the daughter-in-Law
Mother of this Earth...

I LOve YOU, ALL so much, I need you, we all need each Other..
Things are changing fast, the sky is changing, astrology is changing, it's Time, for the Mysteries to be Revealed,
Un-Veiled. ...

There are alot of missing pieces, I'm going to try to find them all, I need help!

Now, let's mention the
The Golden Bough
A Study in Magic and Religion

by Sir James George Frazer

on page 650
in the middle of all the rite's and rituals of ancient times, all the human sacrifice..in the name of God, the False God...

Twelfth Night

the 12 days from Christmas 6 days at the end of the year, and 6 days into the new year,
the last of these mystic twelve days is Epiphany or Twelfth Night..
This is also mentioned in Shakespeare's work..

there's something we are missing...

12 days of Christmas my true LOve gave to me...

I'm digging, searching...
waiting on a vision

Mwah!

What
would make us believe,
that the Bible
is abSOULute Truth!?

Why
would we believe that creation
started not that long ago,
if you go by that, what 4,000
years!?

let's talk millions...
or even say 10,000 years ago...

Adam and Eve
were not the seeders
of this planet

they turned
their backs
on the true Creators

and set up a False
Existence
One of Illusion

But
the Truth did seep in
here
and
there

bits, and fragments
with Jesus, and Mary and Mary
Francis and Claire
Cleopatra
Marie Antoinette
Joan of Arc

and the list
goes
on and on

these first two
Have Survived
Since
the Beginning

When these two
Unite
May Miracles never
Cease

Heart Beat to Heart Beat
Mantra Given
Words
Tones
Vibrations

The Hall of Records
Revealed

The Right paw
shall spring up,
the Sphinx
works with cogs and mechanisms
Levers
Signs
Star

Notes. ...

The Perfect Number is 10
1 and 0

the Sphere
and the line drawn
the cross and circle

Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year....
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep. ~Robert Frost

A Partridge in a Pear Tree
The partridge in a pear tree is Jesus the Christ, the Son of God, whose birthday we celebrate on December 25, the first day of Christmas. In the song, Christ is symbolically presented as a mother partridge that feigns injury to decoy predators from her helpless nestlings, recalling the expression of Christ's sadness over the fate of Jerusalem: "Jerusalem! Jerusalem! How often would I have sheltered you under my wings, as a hen does her chicks, but you would not have it so . . . ." (Luke 13:34)

On the 2nd day of Christmas my true love gave to me...

Day 2, December 26

The first Five Books of the Old Testament, known as the Torah or the Pentateuch: 1) Genesis, 2) Exodus, 3) Leviticus, 4) Numbers, and 5) Deuteronomy, which gives the history of humanity's sinful failure and God's response of grace in the creation of a people to be a light to the world.

(Exodus 20:1-17)

Twelve Drummers Drumming
The twelve points of doctrine in the Apostles' Creed: 1) I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. 2) I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. 3) He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. 4) He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell [the grave]. 5) On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. 6) He will come again to judge the living and the dead. 7) I believe in the Holy Spirit, 8) the holy catholic Church, 9) the communion of saints, 10) the forgiveness of sins, 11) the resurrection of the body, 12) and life everlasting.

you got me, on my way to bed...

On the twelfth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Twelve drummers drumming,
Eleven pipers piping,
Ten lords a-leaping,
Nine ladies dancing,
Eight maids a-milking,
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree!

what do you think it means?
I believe they are clues, and part of
the rituals, that were set up on Truth,
but changed, when Adam and Eve came to
this planet, for then, is when human
sacrifice began!?

LOve to ALL. ...

Drumming and chanting... raising energy

Ten lords a-leaping:

Thanks, Nelly!

I keep thinking about the 1 and the 0 ...
a Tree stands straight, the trunk forms
a 1
now the fruit forms a sphere 0, well not exactly, in a pear.

Two Turtle Doves, now they are two, split in
two, male and female, two LOves

Three French Hens, does this refer to the bloodline, and the trinity formed, in the Name of the Father, the Son, and The Holy Ghost, she is the MOst, lol

Four Calling Birds, Silverstone, I like what you wrote, Direction, calling everything in
to the center..

with the 5 Golden Rings, 5 couples, from the beginning of human form

just thinking out loud, anyOne have any guesses?

LOve to ALL. ...

Why do you think she called it Happiness pOem? and why Twelfth Night Secrets?
Why Twelfth?
Why Night?
Why Secrets?

Night probably because of the loss of our second sun?

why did she call it her second Happiness pOem,

it was to be written with her Twin..when they would Re-Unite...

for each holds a lock and a key...

Twelfth, a system created on 12...by Adam and Eve, the False god, the One of Sacrifice...
12 the Sacrifice the Victum...
Cleopatra, convinced Juluis Ceasar to change the Calendar, to the 12 month Gregorian calendar, this is something that needs to be fixed...
to our natural time piece of 13, but is thirteen correct, giving us 13 months, 28 days a month, 364 days a year, no leap year, no 1/2's...
The Mayan Calendar is something to be studied, but part of the False god...something is hidden there...Secret...

Night, the twelfth Night, 12 days of Sacrifice, for the new Year...when the first
was sacrificed, Osiris, time began, for in his Death he was re-Incarnated into HORUS-OUR HOURS...they were set up...
because Isis saved Set's Life, from Horus's Revenge, for Isis knew the Universal Laws...
but, in this, she was be-headed, beheaded again as Marie Antoinette...
Everything carries over into every Life and Body Temple we reside in...

Secrets, that Adam and Eve, the False God...started creation with themselves...

ah, but the true God made it Through..
one example Jesus and Mary, they were in the set up, of this, the bloodline, they were not poor...but they had no choice but to go along...or suffer Death...12 disciples, 13 the Master-Jesus and Mary, for Mary was his equal, but this had to be hidden..
Jesus did not die on the Cross, this is false to continue the idea of sacrifice, no one can die for your sins, you are responsible for the free-wi11 choices you make...

Now we have 6 6 6, this is the Birth of Jesus, 06-06-0006, a Gemini, Butterfly....
like Minerva and Prometheaus
MINERVA-I AM RA RAVEN

Man is the Beast, plain and simple, Our OverSoul in Heaven is Our Angel form, and here on Earth-He11-Tartarus, we are in devil form, seeking balance with our Angel form...
You must know ThySelf. ...

The Secrets, Isis and Osiris, Are MOther and Father God of this Earth, through the True God, 2 in 1...

Perhaps the manuscript is not finished, for her twin did not keep his promise, he never came back...

ALL are Forgiven
for turning their backs on Our MOther God, betrayed, abandoned, hurt, through Time and Space, She Survives it ALL, LOves ALL unconditionally, and Forgives, and never would ask for sacrifice. ...

Father God, I beseech, you put her back at your Side, here on Earth, as it is in Heaven...

Amen-Awomen

Lotus.

I too am really fascinated by these things, human origins, the origins of sacrifice, etc.

I have began to read this material- a channeling from an entity known as "Ra" which began in 1981.

I am halfway through the first book so far, chapter 13 (I like to read slowly so I can take it all in).

Maldek has been mentioned already, and it says that souls from that planet incarnated here after.

It also says that the great pyramid of Giza was created by thought (by the Ra group)......
Which I found interesting in relation to what Linda wrote in Star Signs. She wrote that the great pyramid was created by sound, by singing to be precise. If all matter= energy vibrations, then it makes sense that the thoughts manifesting matter may have formed some kind of sound in the process......
If that makes sense.

Anyway, here is the link where the Ra material can be read online.
http://www.lawofone.info/

I hope things get easier for you soon.
I am going to send you positive thoughts.

A good example of Sacrifice is in the movie The Believers

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7UMvkrA2Rpc

Blood is the price of power; the dead to the gods that must be repaid. The soul is eternal resides in your blood. The most potent part of you that is indestructible.

Blood is the prize of power; the dead to the Gods that must be repaid. Blood must be shed.

Twelfth Night excerpt from The Golden Bough:


Another witching time is the period of twelve days between Christmas and Epiphany. Hence in some parts of Silesia the people burn pine-resin all night long between Christmas and the New Year in order that the pungent smoke may drive witches and evil spirits far away from house and homestead; and on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve they fire shots over fields and meadows, into shrubs and trees, and wrap straw round the fruit-trees, to prevent the spirits from doing them harm. On New Year’s Eve, which is Saint Sylvester’s Day, Bohemian lads, armed with guns, form themselves into circles and fire thrice into the air. This is called “Shooting the Witches” and is supposed to frighten the witches away. The last of the mystic twelve days is Epiphany or Twelfth Night, and it has been selected as a proper season for the expulsion of the powers of evil in various parts of Europe. Thus at Brunnen, on the Lake of Lucerne, boys go about in procession on Twelfth Night carrying torches and making a great noise with horns, bells, whips, and so forth to frighten away two female spirits of the wood, Strudeli and Strätteli. The people think that if they do not make enough noise, there will be little fruit that year. Again, in Labruguière, a canton of Southern France, on the eve of Twelfth Day the people run through the streets, jangling bells, clattering kettles, and doing everything to make a discordant noise. Then by the light of torches and blazing faggots they set up a prodigious hue and cry, an ear-splitting uproar, hoping thereby to chase all the wandering ghosts and devils from the town.

And miles to go before I sleep. ~Robert Frost
