nattering nabobs of negativism

Call me a nattering nabob of negativisim but no way in hell

Uncanny use of Middle Eastern headgear on the Money Power's heads in this historical political cartoon. Some things never change, they just become even more entrenched.

would I sign the campaign for FCC ruling to clear the way to end robocalls.

Nattering nabob of negativism indeed. An FCC ruling that clears the way for blocking robocalls is not a win for the public but a loss of right to receive any and every call being put through on the lines. The government’s legal inability to interfere with the public’s calls is being rescinded by the public if we let this go through.  There is already a public do not call registry.  The only robocalls stopped by this change of law will be political campaign calls.  Getting information out to the public is a right of assembly.  The mind game seems to be in play on this move.

Look to Yourself to See What You Seek – A Reading from the Book of Tarot for January 30, 2012

Two Tarot cards are profiled. Each card corresponds to a path on the Tree of Life (Kabbalah). These paths are highlighted in the additional pictures provided. The higher the card’s placement on the Tree the higher the consciousness it represents. The combination of what the cards symbolize and the placement of the paths they represent on the Tree will reveal what you need to pay attention to today.

The first card is an archetype card chosen according to the numerology of the day. Today is 1, 30, 2011, or number 9: The Hermit.

The Hermit, the archetypical loner, stands on the snowy peaks of spiritual enlightenment; his right hand raises a shining lamp of truth. The Hermit is sharing the six-pointed star of Solomon’s wisdom for those who are willing, ready and able to see. The figure in this card is said to be wearing the cloak of invisibility, only those who have eyes to see, will see what the Hermit shares. This path is for the person who is willing to stand alone, in “right knowing,” to defy accepted thought and or ways of the world, in order to demonstrate the way to enlightenment.  Following the path of the Hermit lights the way to new levels of understanding, and attainment of goals.  The long thin staff in this figure’s left hand symbolizes the way: the narrow path of initiation. Wholeness on the path of the Hermit requires us to be willing to narrow our life focus in order to complete important work, seek higher consciousness, and model what it is to work as one with the Light and the good of All.

The second card is a random draw, seeking the ideal card to contemplate in relation to current events this day. Today’s card is the archetype of The Hanged Man.

The Hanged Man does not have the power to change all that needs to be changed. That power is completely left to the Light. The color yellow, knowing, glows on this card, both on the figure’s feet and around his head. This figure is perfectly content hanging upside down because he/she knows that it is only a matter of time before what needs to come into form will come into form. Also, note that the man’s legs cross in an odd formation one leg straight and the other crossed at a right angle. This is a symbol of a crossroad, in this case a crossroad we are powerless to do anything about right now. Wholeness requires us to willingly accept our powerlessness. To know, in fact, that our not acting is exactly the right thing to do to achieve wholeness.

Please note:

This reading is meant for the practice of Yoga of the West, a Tarot meditation designed to build a bridge of intuition between the reader’s unconscious and conscious mind.  People also consult the cards as an oracle. Caution is advised. An oracle opens the door to spiritual deception as easily as spiritual truth. To read more about Yoga of the West go to http://bit.ly/9BiovO
