The Emperor’s New Clothes/Rearranging chairs on the Titanic

“How splendid his Majesty looks in his new clothes, and how well they fit!” everyone said

So now the Emperor walked under his high canopy in the midst of the procession, through the streets of his capital; and all the people standing by, and those at the windows, cried out, “Oh! How beautiful are our Emperor’s new clothes! What a magnificent train there is to the mantle; and how gracefully the scarf hangs!” in short, no one would allow that he could not see these much-admired clothes; because, in doing so, he would have declared himself either a simpleton or unfit for his office. Certainly, none of the Emperor’s various suits, had ever made so great an impression, as these invisible ones

But the Emperor has nothing at all on!” said a little child.

“Listen to the voice of innocence!” exclaimed his father; and what the child had said was whispered from one to another.

“But he has nothing at all on!” at last cried out all the people.

I usually try to write something positive, hopeful and inspirational, something related to my work with terminally ill people, with Native American People or to my life here in the mountains of northern New Mexico. I hope to write about people and experiences that may be inspiring to others, that may sometimes point to a better, more meaningful way of living.

But there are some things I’ve noticed lately and I am going to write about them because the Titanic is sinking fast. These things are not so positive but thinking and then doing something about them could be very positive and enlightening.

In my mind, I have seen that image of the Titanic sinking so many times lately and I have felt it. In my own life I have sometimes felt as if I’m in a tiny lifeboat, surrounded by darkness on a rough sea and sometimes, like in one of the final scenes in the movie, Titanic I have felt like the people clinging on to the floating boards, just hoping to survive.

And everyone, unless they’re completely blind, can see that on a national and probably world level, the Titanic is sinking FAST. Or maybe there are those who don’t want to see who are, as I’ve heard it said, “rearranging chairs on the Titanic.”



I was interested to see this morning, that in the skit Bernie Sanders appeared in on SNL last night, the theme was the sinking Titanic. It’s a powerful image.

Last week, I posted a before and after photo on Facebook, of the New Mexico morning sky: a clear bright blue and then a half hour later, the sky completely fogged by chemtrails. When you live off the grid, you depend on the sun for your electricity. When there is no sun, as on a rainy day, you may have to run the generator. This is not good for the batteries and of course you have to spend money on gas to run the generator.

So when you learn that is the military spraying chemicals [you can easily do the research..there are several whistle blowers], trying to control the weather, destroying the earth, causing disease, blocking the makes you Very angry! Unless you prefer to pretend that you don’t see what you do see…the emperor’s new clothes.

These are the photos that I put on Facebook and no one said anything except one friend who wrote: “TOTALLY agree. But good luck trying to find people who see that that’s not from a regular passenger plane.

But why is this?….why pretend?..why not be part of something positive?..I’m listing some alternatives below and there are a lot of them-I’ve only posted a few.

In the meantime, yesterday my companion/partner got his medical cannabis ID card which means he can buy marijuana and I will soon be getting my growers license so I can grow a limited number of plants for him.

jody:legalAfter he got the card, I did a little research and looked up the states where medical marijuana is legal and there are quite a few… but in the process, I read something that I thought was hilarious!..I had a vision of “Young Frankenstein”.  I read that in Texas, medical marijuana is only approved for epilepsy and can only be used “after everything else has been tried” [BIG PHARMA…as in who gets the MONEY…always look there first]. And then the doctor who will administer the oil must take a course on administering the oil…a comedy!…imagine a course for an herb, a plant that has been used for thousands of years for healing!  no courses necessary though for prescribing all the prescription drugs-pain killers, anti depressants ….BIG PHARMA…..follow the MONEY trail…

And then today is the Super Bowl and people will be getting drunk and getting into fights no doubt over whose team won, totally oblivious to the sinking Titanic, and some will be driving drunk and that’s all OK..because there’s big MONEY in alcohol and so many become powerless under its influence..MONEY and POWER over the people…always look there first.sheeple

And there’s so much more…more to pay attention to, more to research…when I go into the Walgreens in the nearby town of Las Vegas, NM, there are repeating, irritating announcements over the loudspeaker for shingles vaccines…because supposedly, everyone after a certain age [not that old] may get shingles…do most people even know anyone with shingles?….but there’s MONEY in the vaccines

So the Titanic is sinking but there are many positive things happening if you look for them.

Below I’ve posted some youtubes of projects and people that been helpful to me:

The first is about The Giraffe Project. In 1988, I founded RITES OF PASSAGE [AIDS Care and Assistance], a non profit organization with a mission to provide care for people with AIDS and other terminal illnesses and I was so proud to receive the Giraffe Commendation. The Giraffe Project honors people internationally who stick their necks out for the common good.

Next is Eckhart Tolle talking about the Current Economy…about how the ego based systems are beginning to collapse [that’s for sure no matter how many chairs they try to rearrange on the Titanic!] and how this is necessary for the planet to survive and the New to come in : ” I saw a New Heaven and a New Earth”

And last is a video clip I found just a few days ago…called Dear America..I find to be absolutely and refreshingly true
