Full Moon over and under ocean, location unknownPHOENIX/LOS ANGELES = Friday – 31 July 2015 – 03:42:54 AM (PDT)

Tomorrow, Friday, July 31, 2015, the world will welcome another Blue Moon.  It will occur in the early morning – 3: 43 AM – here in the Pacific time zone.

We haven’t seen a Blue Moon for nearly three years. The last one was on Aug 31, 2012 (see below).

What is a “Blue Moon?”

It is the name given to the second full moon in a calendar month. Because there are roughly 29.5 days between full moons, it is unusual for two full moons to “fit” into a 30 or 31 day month.

The saying “Once in a Blue Moon” means a rare occurrence, and predates the current astronomical use of the term, which is quite recent. In fact, Blue Moons are actually not all that rare, on average there will be one Blue Moon every 2.5 years.

But I had no idea about any of that when I walked onto the Meelup Beach in Western Australia (right) with a group of friends on the Blue Moon night 16 years ago.  It was on Jan 31, 1999 that I first heard of the term Blue Moon and actually watched one rise over the ocean.

Meelup beachIt was an apt place for it. Because Meelup means “place of the moon” in the Australian Aborigine language.  Elizabeth and I also visited this beautiful beach in February of this year (right).

The story “Once in a Blue Moon at Meelup“, published in Feb 1999, helped me (re)remember the details time had erased from memory. You can also read it below.

Happy Blue Moon of 2015!

A Travel Vignette


Once in a Blue Moon at Meelup Beach

WESTERN AUSTRALIA, Jan 31, 1999 – We’ve all heard of girl-watching; bird-watching; crystal ball-gazing; watching a toast that never pops; watching your step, or your manners… But have you ever heard of moon-gazing? 

 Well, it happens. But only once in a blue moon. At the Meelup beach – the “place of the moon” – in Western Australian Aborigine language.

So moon-gazing is not a western tradition. The Aborigines were well aware of the beauty of the Meelup moon. Too bad there aren’t many of them left these days to share the moon with us. Maybe we’d be able to find out if they also knew about the blue moon?

I didn’t. Not until a professional moon-gazer, a banker, explained it to me. If a full moon happens twice in a single month, it’s called a “blue moon.” Since that’s a rare event, thence the expression, “once in a blue moon.” Simple. Logical. Useful. For a game of Trivial Pursuit.

“It’s late,” declared a local Naturaliste expert, the name of the nearby cape first discovered by the French, almost two centuries ago.

“What’s late?”

“The moon.”

“Really? How do you know?”

“It was supposed to rise at 7:44 (PM). And now it’s close to eight o’clock.” Then posing to reflect on the significance of the moon’s tardiness, the expert declared: “It will rise two inches above the horizon tonight.”

“Really? Why two inches?”

“Because of the mist in the air.”

“Hm?” I still wasn’t getting it. Two inches on a horizon as wide as Indian Ocean’s could mean literally two inches; or two thousand miles; or two million miles… depending on the distance from the observer. But I realized I was being way too pragmatic for a setting so sensory; so entirely “out of this world,” that it seemed almost surreal. Several hundred people huddled on a beach, waiting for a blue moon to break the dusk and rise over the ocean. So I shut up, and let my senses take over.

“Want a piece of chicken?” my wife asked. Now that’s letting a sense take over – a sense of survival!

“Sure, thanks.”

As the seconds ticked away, I noticed that just about everybody was also chomping on “chooks,” Aussie-speak for chicken. “It’s the easiest thing to make for a picnic meal,” one lady explained.

“Look at the stingray,” the Naturaliste expert exclaimed, pointing to a distant part of the beach.

“Stingray? You can see a stingray in this darkness?,” I asked, figuring he was pulling my leg. All I could see was a two-masted sailing boat which was trying to move in closer to the expectant moon.

Then, as if he hadn’t made a comment about the stingray, the Naturaliste continued, looking across the ocean horizon. “Just think, it’s so beautiful and peaceful here. But somewhere out there, there are people killing each other. Isn’t that bizarre?”

Having quickly snapped back to my pragmatic mode, I was thinking fast and furiously what countries lay due north from us which could have elicited this comment. Indonesia, Malaysia, China, Russia, New York, Colombia, Brazil… I was mentally following the 110º or so meridian up and around the globe.

“I guess, so,” I replied, not wanting to pursue a political discussion at such a moment.

“There it is!” someone shouted excitedly from behind us.

Indeed, a tiny glow of orange light flickered due north above the ocean. And yes, it was about “two inches” above the horizon. So now I got it. The ocean mist blocks the light until the moon rises high enough above it, making it seem as if the moon actually jumped, like a ball bouncing off the ocean.

From there on, the moon rose fairly quickly, gradually shedding its orange glow, and taking on a milky color which streamed across the ocean like a giant silver runway. The Meelup moon-gazers cheered for the sail boat to hurry up and glide with its sails across the moon. But to no avail. This moon was just too fast for a little schooner to catch it. The boat had to settle for a silver – crossing the moon’s silver runway. Back on the beach, cameras were clicking furiously.

Suddenly, the mournful sound of a saxophone penetrated the night’s stillness. “Oh, no! Don’t tell me that Slick Willie has followed us all the way down here?,” my wife exclaimed.

I laughed. But I was the only one who laughed. Guess that was an “in joke” for Americans only? I decided to leave it that way, as the rest of the people were happily humming along with the saxophone’s tunes.

To say that it was a romantic moment was to understate its beauty. The scene was pure magic. Meelup magic.

“Well, the beer’s gone, let’s go,” a burly male voice said. And so was the magic. Gone. Until the next blue moon, at Meelup.

As if on command, several hundred people got up, packed the remains of their “chooks,” and headed for cars and buses. Yes, the buses. Moon-gazing is such a popular sport down here that the shire (county) even laid on some buses to take those who opted for a 5km (3 miles) shoreline walk from the nearby town to the beach, back to their cars in the parking lot.

“See you next year,” we waved goodbye to some of our new friends. For, friendships minted by the Meelup blue moon are “forever,” the Aborigines used to believe.

“How do you know that?” someone asked.

“Because I used to come to this beach in one of my former lives.”

A look of incredulity showed on my friend’s face. “What loony house did this guy come from?,” the face wondered.

So I added, “Just kidding. I don’t know that. But it’s got to be true. Just ask the Meelup moon.

Right after listening to the marvelous lecture by Sadhguru in honor of the Guru Purnima day, this music started to well up in my ears. I felt a Divine connection through it.

I sat down immediately to play it and record it as a symphony orchestra piece the way I heard it, with the strings as the lead. It was all done without any practice.

Alas, I do not know that this music is. I could be Mozart or Bach, I think. So I need your help – my dear musically endowed and educated friends – in identifying these opening bars of an evidently larger piece. Thank you.

My 30-second clip is attached (MP3 file). I am calling it my GURU PURNIMA THEME for now.

Thank you in advance.





Hawaii is full of contradictions.  The state leads all others in the union in solar installations per capita.  And the government is spending a lot of taxpayer dollars on wind farms. Hawaii is also the first state to pass a law requiring 100 percent of the state’s electricity to be generated using renewables by 2045.

Progressive, right?

Yes. But appearances can be deceiving.  Hawaii is also one of only 8 states to see its carbon emissions actually rise in the last 7 years.


132847Because Hawaiian public utilities generates most of their power Puunene_millusing imported crude oil. And the state allows unfettered pollution from burning of sugar cane fields, including that at the Puunene plant in Maui (see “Sugar Cane: Another Season of Smoke Looms Over Maui“).

They are interested only in their crony capitalist profits: Global warming is just a sales pitch.” [Hawaii Free Press]

HawaiiSugarcaneTonsAnd while profession a Clean Energy Initiative and its commitment to renewable energy, the Hawaiian government has also allowed the public utilities to raise their electric rates sharply despite a record number of solar installations.  Nor do they compensate private solar producers for excess energy fed into the utility grid, as most of the states on the mainland do.

Squeezed like lemons Hawaii solar[Hawaiian electrical rates are already three times higher than that in the mainland – see Hawaii PUC Mistreats Solar Producers (“Post Nubilla, Phoebus,” Dec 2012), Hawaii Governor Replies Six Months Later (PDF, 5-08-13), and Corporate Greed Casts Doubt over Hawaii Solar Energy (PDF, 5-08-13)]

So Hawaii’s unfettered pollution is fueled by unfettered corporate greed.

GasTax-01Hawaii also has the third highest gasoline tax rate in the nation, after Pennsylvania and New York and by far the highest gasoline prices at the pump of any other state.

Just another example of unfettered corporate greed.

For the time being, however, surfing and swimming is still free in Hawaii. Until some government or corporate tycoon figures out a way of taxing the waves.

UPDATE JULY 29, 2015


Norway is leading the world’s electric vehicle market, having registered its 50,000th electric car in April of this year. In the first quarter of 2015, 8,112 plug-in electric and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles were sold in Norway, accounting for a third of the country’s total vehicle registrations, according to IHS Automotive. image (4)
Norway is roughly the size of Colorado (around 5 million population according to the 2010 Census). So no wonder that in terms of percentage of all electric cars its lead is even more impressive. A full one-third of all registered cars in Norway are electric! Compare that to a mere 0.8% in our country of 320 million people. 
iceland-norway-not-in-euBy the way, Norway also ranks as the No. 1 country in the world in terms of human development and standard of living. Iceland is No. 13. And NEITHER country is a member of the European Union! (see €UROTOPIA: UNITED STATES OF EUROPE (1995) – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-14t).
For what it’s worth, Elizabeth and I took our first Leaf electric car ride in February 2012 in Honolulu. We got our own Leaf in Maui in May 2012. Ours was the first electric car license plate issued on Maui. Now when one drives around the island, I you see the Leafs everywhere – by FAR MORE than in Arizona, for example. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Speaking of which, we have been also driving a Honda Hybrid in Arizona since 2008. Now we have two of them.

A REQUIEM FOR LOST SOULS ON FLIGHT MH17 – based on J.S. Bach’s “Air on the G-string”

I have said all that needed to be said from a geopolitical point of view about this tragic false flag attack in my Truth in Media memorial piece – IN MEMORIAM: TO ALL MH17 VICTIMS WHO PERISHED IN FALSE FLAG ATTACK 1 YEAR AGO, July 17, 2015.

Now, I will let the music from my heart speak to all 298 lost souls of this doomed flight, the innocent victims of global power plays by evil men and women.  I recorded this piece on July 17, 2015 – exactly one year from the day Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was shot down over Ukraine.

Please join me by watching this music video in quiet prayer or meditation, if your heart guides you to do so.

Enjoy some of the most beautiful places on Earth – my selections from God’s art gallery

by Bob Altzar Djurdjevic

In late January of this year, I was moved to create a film which featured some of the most beautiful places on Earth (see OUR BEAUTIFUL PLANET, Jan 24, 2015). I started with six photos. Four hours and 82 images later, I created that  short video, including some great music that befits the visual beauty.

Well, it’s happened again.  On May 20, I started looking at some pinterest.com shots and was quickly hooked again.  And it was like eye candy.  Soon I was high on sugar and beauty.

So this time, I will share with you my new selections from God’s Art Gallery gradually – a few images at the time.  So your art palate  doesn’t get too saturated and thus dulled by overabundance of beauty and colors.

Two months and 197 images later, here it is…

Music is like air. It is everywhere.  Even if we are not aware.

(I know, even the preceding comments are like music. They rhyme. Unintentionally.)

Sometimes music can surprise us. When it springs out of some hidden crevice like a mountain spring. Unexpectedly. Because we did not know it was even there.

That’s what happened last night after I had posted this brief comment about Omar Sharif’s passing (below). I started to hear the sounds Lara’s Theme from Dr Zhivago, a 1965 film which won a plethora of Oscars, including the Best Music Score.

That was over 50 years ago. But because Dr Zhivago was banned in the communist Yugoslavia, I saw it for the first time only in 1970 after I arrived in North America. I must have heard Lara’s Theme on the radio, though, when I lived in Switzerland in 1967 and 1968. Because it sounded familiar when I saw the movie.

To the  best of my recollection, I have never played that song. And yet last night, it took less than half an hour to go from inspiration to recording and production of this video tribute. Without any sheet music, except that I looked up to see what key the original song was written in (G major). After staying in a hidden memory crevice for 50 years!

And so with that as a preamble, here’s now my last night’s recording of Lara’s Theme along with some of the most memorable scenes from Dr Zhivago…

UPDATE JULY 12, 2015


This morning, I woke up with another segment of Lara’s Theme song in my ears that was not a part of yesterday’s recording. It was as my Spirit guides were chiding me for leaving it out, and wanting me to go back, learn it, orchestrate it and the (re)record it using the original Russian instrument – Balalaika – as the lead.

And so I obliged.

Here’s now that new Balalaika version of Lara’s Theme. Except that in my case, I used a Mandolin, since my Clavinova does not have a Balalaika among its orchestral voices.

Omar Sharif, 83, Remembered: From Egypt to Hollywood, a Chameleon of the Screen

This is a shot of Omar Shariff from “Doctor Zhivago” in which Sharif’s face is almost entirely veiled in shadow, so that all we see are his eyes, focused on the woman who will soon become his lover. For all the visual sweep of David Lean’s magnificently 1965 romance, it contains few images as telling or revealing as this one: Here were eyes for the audience to lose itself in, but also to study closely.

The film historian and professor Constantine Santas summed it up in his appreciative 2011 study of Lean’s epics, when he wrote that Sharif Zhivago’s “eyes then become the mirror of reality we ourselves see.”

By the way, Sharif received more than 3,000 marriage proposals in one week after the release of “Doctor Zhivago.”

Show 11 – Tending the Earth

IBob Altzar shadown this show Jeff & John-Luke, ask what do we mean and what does it take in “Tending The Earth?” Altzar Cutoutand are we in some struggle between tending and reaping; supply and demand?

We will be trying get a grip on the notion of tending Earth and whether this is our job or is our role to be tended by the earth; and how far do we take or realize our responsibility for tending or mis-tending. The mistreatment of the environment is a big debate and we hope to address a small piece of it.

Pensioners in Greece

Up until now, I have been analyzing the Greek debt crisis from the earthly realm’s perspective, using the financial and geopolitical yardsticks and experience I have gleaned in the last three decades as a business analyst, war correspondent and geopolitical commentator.

In this essay, which has been writing itself for the last 4-5 days with the help of my Spirit guides and teachers, we change the tack. I put on my shaman’s hat and poncho and try to answer the question: What does the Greek crisis look like from the perspective of the spiritual realm?

Law of Karma and Law of Free Will: Universal Laws That Apply Unconditionally

QUO VADIS, GREECE? (Where to, Greece?)

Everybody has heard about Greece’s colossal public debt ($380 billion and counting).  That’s about 160% of the country’s GDP.

It is unsustainable, in other words. As a result, the banks are closed. The Greek people are suffering, especially the pensioners and the poor.

But what about Greece’s karmic debt? Are the two debts related? Could one have contributed to the other?

That’s what this essay is about…

Benjamin Franklin

Well, I am sorry to say this oft-cited Benjamin Franklin quote is wrong. On both counts. Death is merely a portal to another lifetime.  top-us-tax-dodgers-2008-2012-1As for taxes?

Well, the U.S. leads all countries with $337 million annually in uncollected taxes.  And that’s not counting the real mega-tax dodgers – giant multinational corporations who earn billions of dollars in profit and pay little or no tax (right).

There are two universal laws, however, that are not only certain, but apply to all aspects of life on this Earth unconditionally. And even beyond this planet.

They are the Law of Karma and the Law of Free Will. And just like the Greek national debt, they are interrelated.

The Law of Karma: Our Bank Account in the Spirit Realm

“You will reap what you sow”

Karma is the Law of Cause and Effect – one of the most important natural laws. The simplest explanation maybe the one offered in the Bible – “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap”.

Some religious interpretations have perverted this universal Law and made it sound like God’s punishment. But the Creator does not punish. He/she merely keeps the score of our actions.

The Law of Karma is actually quite impersonal, objective and exacting in its application. It makes no exceptions and plays no favorites.  Every word and every action is a cause that leads an effect.

As the Bible also says [Matthew 26:52], “put your sword back in its place,” Jesus said to him, “for all who draw the sword will die by the sword.”

Karma ‘earned’ in a lifetime form has to be ‘repaid’ either in that or future incarnations.  If one rapes and kills women, for example, and for whatever reason escapes judgment in this lifetime, you can be pretty sure that persona will incarnate as a rape victim in one of his future lifetimes.  That’s just how the Law of Karma works.


So we can think of the Law of Karma as a bank account. The actions we take or refrain from in a lifetime are either credits or debits to that account balance.

Any “good” (credit) act we commit will be repaid as a “good” action by someone else.  Any “bad” (debit) will be also returned the same way in proportion to our own action.

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” the Bible also teaches

The Law of Karma ‘system’ automatically keeps track of every action and word. It maintains an exact accounting of our ‘karma balance’ at all times, both for the current lifetime, and cumulatively (you can learn more about it if you click here).

Sometimes, a soul can incarnate simultaneously in multiple bodies. They are called Soul Splits. That happens sometimes with advanced souls so as to speed up the soul development.  So while one part of the soul may be creating karma, another may be erasing it.

Karma Credits and Debits

Consta2When I incarnated as the Roman Emperor Constantine, for example, I accumulated a lot of karma. That’s despite the fact that at the end of that lifetime I converted to Christianity and built wonderful monuments honoring God (Constantinople, for example, an entire city, the New Rome, as it is sometimes called, among many others).

delphi-1Yet at the same time, I also incarnated as Theodosius, a Greek monk based in Delphi, whose entire life was devoted to serving God and the people. So while Constantine was accumulating karma, Theodosius was reducing the “bank balance.”

Theodosius 1{This revelation stunned the Delphi Museum director, who literally cried when we discovered a stone marker of Theodosius the Monk on the Delphi grounds in Oct 2011. It was a magical historical moment for all of us who were present there – see Magic of Delphi, Oct 2011).

A similar thing happened when I was accumulating karma as King Phillip II of Spain in the 16th century (left), in whose name the Conquistadors invaded and destroyed the Inca Empire. A net debit to my karma account.MTE5NTU2MzE2MzQzMjA3NDM1

At the same time, however, I was also incarnated as Hatun Watana (“Great Marker”), the High Priest-Shaman ofHuayni Picchu Shaman the Inca Empire, who counseled the emperor against waging further wars on the Spaniards.

The interesting thing is that this happened right after the Inca’s only victory over the Conquistadors at Ollantaytambo. Realizing the Spaniards’ ultimate military superiority, Hatun Watana wanted to preserve the Inca culture and people. Together, the Emperor and the Hight Priest-Shaman led their nation into safety of impassable interior valleys of the Andes (Machu Picchu, Vilcabamba ).

Machu Picchu was never discovered by the Spaniards. It remained the “Lost City of the Incas” until 1911. That was net credit to ALTZAR’s karma account.

The ultimate goal for all souls is ZERO balance. Once a soul reaches that point, usually after thousands or even millions of lifetimes, the soul can stop incarnating.

That’s what we mean by Ascension.  We no longer need to come into body.  No more lessons to be learned in the physical realm. We can then start working as guides and teachers to others, to help then on their paths to Ascension.

The Law of Free Will

The Law of Free Will is much easier to explain and understand.  It simply means that everything we say or do is of our choosing. Nobody can “make us” do things we don’t want to do.  Just like with the Law of Karma, God is completely neutral and impartial.

So if we choose to behave in a way that will earn us a karma debit, that’s on us. If we choose to serve God and humanity in the hope of getting karma credits, that’s also on us.

Either way, we will end up at the same place. Eventually.  There are no wrong paths.  It’s just that some are easier. Others are harder and they take longer. It all depends on our free will and how quickly we are willing to learn.  Some will ascend sooner, others later.

Law of Free Will

The Law of Free Will means that we are completely and solely responsible for our own actions, whether “good” or “bad.”  We, and only we, nobody else, not God, not our guides and teachers. only we are in charge of our destiny, and how fast we reach the point of ascension.

These two laws – the Law of Karma and the Law of Free Will – are universal and immutable. 

So what does all that have to do with Greece and its national debt?

Well, the Law of Karma applies to groups of people, not just individuals.

Group or National Karma

Besides this individual karma, there are also different types of group karma – village karma, town karma, national karma, racial karma, religious karma, tribal karma or any other types of collective karma which may affect a person’s life and circumstance.

Any group which is cohesive enough to function as a unit and develop its own causal body (where all karma is stored, hence ‘causal’), will have its own ‘Sanchit Karma’ which will affect the members of its group.

Hitler-Climbs-Steps hqdefault maxresdefault

And even though each member may not have played an equal part in creating this karma, they will have to bear its consequences to some degree (though the consequences will be fairly distributed amongst the group members, the karma is worked out as a group outside the individual’s ‘life-plan’).

Which brings us to NATO’s War on Serbia in 1999. Here’s an excerpt from a recent article on the upcoming demise of the €uro (see €URO WAS DOOMED FROM THE START, EVEN BEFORE ITS BIRTH, July 7):

Preventing Wars by Starting Them

Eliminating nationalism would supposedly help prevent future wars in Europe, they said.

Of course, the globalists’ duplicity quickly became clear for all but the blind sheeple to see. Less than three months after the €uro launch, they launched a war on a small European country – for the first time since the end of WW II.

Here is what this writer said about NATO’s “Gang Rape of Serbia” which started in March 1999:

Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 10.56.44 AMaus10-99-wa1A military alliance of 19 nations and 780 million people; with over half of the world’s gross economic product (GNP), commanding two-thirds of the global military firepower, ganged up on a tiny nation of 10 million. For 79 days, NATO terrorized the people of Serbia, dropping 23,000 bombs and missiles on them in 36,000 sorties” (An excerpt from speeches delivered across the U.S. and around the world as well as in print articles, 1999).

So much for the globalists’ trying to prevent wars in Europe – by launching them!

Still, the European sheeple by and large bought the bogus promises of a brighter future that the €uro and the EU would supposedly deliver. After all, “we are not Serbia,” they reasoned, much like some decent Germans depicted in Pastor Martin Niemöller’s famous anti-Nazi poem:

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—79623
I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak out for me.

So what does that have to do with Greece?

Greece Was One of the Participants in NATO’s “Gang Rape of Serbia

Well, as a NATO member, Greece was one of the participants in NATO’s “Gang Rape of Serbia”. And as such, it has accumulated its own national karma. All the more because the majority of Serbs are Orthodox Christians, like most Greeks.  So for Greece, it was a fratricidal war in a way.

Of course, many Greek people were opposed to this war. But just like many the Germans in Pastor NiemÖller’s poem, most acquiesced or looked the other way. And so…

When they came for the Serbs, I did not speak out—
I was not a Serb.

Which means, group karma (see NATO’s War on Serbia Mar-Jun 1999, Truth in Media).

As that famous Edmund Burke quote goes…

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing” 

Of course, there were exceptions. Like the famous Greek composer Mikis Theodorakis (“Zorba the Greek: Tribute to Greek Democracy“), for example, who spoke out against the war on Serbia in Athens on Apr 26, 1999, while the bombs were still falling on Belgrade and elsewhere… (see this Youtube clip from his speech).

Renown Greek Composer Denounces NATO, Calls on Greek Public to “Resist”

ATHENS, Apr. 27 – A renown Greek composer, Mikis Theodorakis, took center stage in last night’s highly successful concert in downtown Athens in support of the Serbian people, denouncing NATO’s raids against their country.

Facing a cheering crowd, Mr. Theodorakis stated (see Truth in Media special wartime bulletin 99-56, Day 36, Apr 28, 1999):

“The leaders of the NATO member-states yesterday (Sunday) signed a death sentence for the United Nations. The United States can now, with the connivance of the European countries, judge, sentence and punish anyone whom they view as objecting to their designs. I do not think it an exaggeration to say that we are about to enter another Middle Age era. So, get a hold of warm, wool clothing, mufflers, gloves, bitter cold lies ahead.

As I have stated since the start of the raids, all that is being said about ethnic cleansing is merely pretext. I have said that they (NATO) don’t care about dialogue and agreements; their sole aim is to turn the heretic Yugoslavia into scorched earth. And they intend to do just that, transform Serbia into a desert made up of dust and blood, displaying it to the next victims, warning them ‘look, this is what lies ahead if you don’t succumb.’

We, the Greeks, should be proud since we were the only ones who all together and in unison said ‘NO’ to barbarity. We shall stand by the victims, by the Serbs. We want our singing today to overpower the air raid sirens and the missile blasts. ‘Belgrade, today we sing for you. We are on your side. Be courageous, justice is on your side, and justice always triumphs.” 

Meanwhile, a TiM correspondent reported this evening increased activity of NATO planes and helicopters in the sky over northern Greece. Also, convoys of NATO tanks and APCs have been on the move, “under a strong (Greek) police protection,” this correspondent writes (an excerpt from (see Truth in Media special wartime bulletin 99-56, Day 36, Apr 28, 1999).

In other words, while many Greeks opposed NATO’s gang rape of their neighbors to the north, the Greek government backed the war (see While Government Backs Nato, Greek Hearts Go With Serbs, Chicago Tribune, April 16, 1999).

And it is the government that sets the national policy and thus creates the national karma for all. Just as with the U.S. government that has tarred all of us Americans with its war crimes around the world.

Aftermath of NATO’s War on Serbia

Now, let’s take a look at the Greek debt and economy.


poor-cinderella-little-girls-costume-robin-dress-c--UDU2Ny0xMDE5NDUuMzEzNDY1Back in 1999, Greece’s debt-to-GDP ratio was slightly higher than the EU average.  In fact, in was on a par with today’s British or Spanish indebtedness.  And then, as the economy slowed not just in Greece but in most NATO countries, the debt-to-GDP ratio soared, making Greece now look like a Cinderella of Europe, an unwanted stepchild.

Payback’s a bitch, especially when it comes to karmic debt.

What Can Greece Do? (about its karmic debt)

So what can Greece do now to work out that old karma?

Two things come to mind… 1. Get out of NATO; 2. Start to make amends to Serbia.

How do I know that? From personal experience, not just as a shamanic theory.

When certain “bad” things happened to me in early 2012, I poured love and treasure into the area from where the trouble came.

No , I was not smart enough to figure that out on my own. I got good advice. From the Spirit realm.:.

Light Beings: … [You need] to provide balance to this issue, energetically. And that can be a donation, that can be a contribution of some sort, that could be a token from you as a way of appeasing, of providing energetic balance. Instead going toward this particular irritation, you send it elsewhere, and allow that to balance with your energy. And then let go for the time being the issue. And let Spirit work with this rental car company energetically, ‘cause you’ve done your part, while at the same time, you’re creating some balance in that area.

Which is exactly what happened. I did my part. And miracles followed. Literally.  The karmic credit wiped out the debit entry in my Bank of Karma account. And I never heard about that problem again (see The Iceman Miracle, July 3, 2012).

Maybe Greece can also be so lucky if she follows this advice?

Quo Vadis, Greece? (Where To, Greece?)

So what is likely to happen after Sunday (July 12), the latest deadline the EU set for Greece to accept its ultimatums or leave the eurozone?

You can read about that and see three examples amazing Divine Synchronicities in this Truth in Media editorial:

Our Offering of Love and Solidarity with the Greek People

While Elizabeth was cleaning the house after our Fourth of July party, I sat down and spontaneously started to play the Mikis Theodorakis’ unforgettable theme song from the 1964 film “Zorba the Greek.” It was our offering of love and solidarity with the Greek people on this important night in their history.

We also did that at the Rainbow Shower, Maui on the eve of 11-11-11. So rather than make a new recording of it, here’s now again that video of Elizabeth and me doing our unrehearsed Greek dance for the first time. Just like Anthony Quinn and Alan Bates did it in “Zorba the Greek.” Except that we danced to the sound of my prerecorded music on the Steinway and bouzouki.

This afternoon, on a spur of a moment, I recorded this tribute to Greek democracy and all the men and women who said OXI (NO-N€IN) today to the global bankers’ ultimatums…
