Love is the Law (revisited)

Darkness seems to spread from heart to mind;
Soulless evil clings to every crime.
Eager Knights of God bedeck the scene.
Vigilantes all whose thought's are mean.

Sing the Song of Pain my heart decries.
Hollow chests of blackness to defy.
Enter bitter spirits of unrest;
Hear us now we are the sweet unblessed.

Love is the Law; it matters not the Source.
Heart is the place from which all Blessings come.
Bind not your Soul to that which is unreal;
Love is the Law, Love is the Light.

Within my hands I hold a beating heart;
A child is dying, with his Mother not.
I try to comfort him, what can I say?
You are a Blessed Soul unleashed today.

There are some evil men who like to play
With other humans, why? I cannot say.
Some twisted sickness lies within them deep.
Perhaps an ugly rage that cannot sleep.

Love is the Law; no matter which religion.
Heart is the source of all that's right.
Close not your Thought to that which could reveal
Love is the Law, Love is the Light.

Within my Home a sense of Darkness spreads;
Its stretching fingers weave an awesome thread
That reaches out to all with motive dark.
I fear the Light is now a threatened Ark.

Dominion speaks of finite latitudes,
With voices deep, all filled with platitudes.
Within that space is filled an awesome void.
How can you speak to that which is a ploy?

Love is the Law; the source of all the Light.
Heart is the place of gentle breeze Delight.
Within your grasp a single breath away
Is Heaven's Joy, Love is the Way.

Oh, Gaza, I weap for you; War Crimes.

Because I do not watch American tv or listen to radio news unless it is pbs or democracy now or one of the two existing left-wing online radio stations, I do not get the lies that are being told the public first-hand; I get the MSM propaganda from thiose who do. It was just mentioned by one of my friends that
American media are reporting violence that took place along the Gaza-Israel border on January 27th as, in the words of CNN, "the first incidents of violence since last week's Mideast cease-fire," telling the public that Palestinians broke the ceasefire.

This is a lie, and not the only one.
"The reality, however, is that Israel had already violated the cease-fire at least 7 times, the Israeli military killing 2 Palestinian civilians and injuring at least 5, at least one of them a child:

* Israeli forces killed a Palestinian farmer in Khuza'a east of Khan Yunis on Jan 18
* Israeli forces killed a Palestinian farmer east of Jabalia on Jan 19
* Israeli naval gunboats shelled the Gaza coast line, causing damage to civilian structures on Jan 21
* Israeli troops shot and injured a child east of Gaza City on Jan 22
* Israeli gunboat fire injured 4-7 Palestinian fishermen on Jan 22
* Israeli shelling set a Palestinian house on fire on Jan 22
* Israeli tanks fired on the border town of Al Faraheen, causing damage to homes and farms on Jan 24
This list does not include two Palestinian children who were killed on January 20th by unexploded ordnance left from Israel's 22-day assault on Gaza." by Haitham Sabbah,"Israel Violated Cease-fire 7 Times, No Media Reports," Jan 28th, 2009. "Slide"

But, what I find worse is the truths that they are speaking, evidently with no sense of shame(reminds one of Bush and Cheney). They sound entirely too much like the Nazis for comfort. They are intentionally and openly blocking and destroying all attempts to give humanitarian aid to the Palestinians. They are telling them to go to the center of town for their own safety, then bombing the shit out of the area, leaving many dead and wounded. They are refusing to let medical supplies through to the hospitals that have little or no supplies left to deal with the mounting severe casualties. They have bulldozed their water towers leaving them without water in a desert. They have hemmed these people into a tiny area where they can barely move around and are then murdering them, routinely. Mothers are killed in front of their children, deliberately. Children die in their parents arms. The screams and tears and pain are endless, and still the Israelis push on, increasing the death toll with every passing moment.

Don't believe me? Well, here is a video you might find interesting, if you can bare to watch it.

Gaza 2009: We will never forget

This is an atrocity and a war crime to match any that every came out of Germany.
Shame on you, Israel, shame on you.

Groundhogs Day and Imbolc or Brigid's Day

You Call It Groundhog Day, We Call It Imbolc by Peg Aloi

excerp:The transition of Candlemas and other ancient celebrations to Groundhog Day dates back to the time of the Roman conquest of Northern Europe: the Christian celebration of Candlemas was associated with songs like this one:

If Candlemas be fair and bright
Come, winter, have another flight
If Candlemas brings clouds and rain,
Go, winter, and come not again.

This practice of divining the weather on this day spread to Germany, and was brought to this country by some of its first German settlers, also known as Pennsylvania Dutch: hence the location of the most famous groundhog. Also, the groundhog (also known affectionately as a woodchuck) was not the original prototypical weather-divining creature: in Europe it was a hedgehog. But early American settlers were nothing if not adaptable, and so the local creature most closely resembling a hedgehog was chosen for this ritual.

Worth the read if you are a curious person. Enjoy.

Once again it is that wonderful season of baby seal bashing of which Canadians are so proud (not and not). What a horror. I suspect most folks from outside Canada visualize blood and squealing, dying seals when the name "Canada" is mentioned. How lovely that my northern cousin brings to mind such sweet images. And, there is the sound. Heartbreaking. Will Canada's government, I suspect closely related to our own kind-hearted Gov Palin, start putting out mag and tv ads on seal bashing so tourists could be enticed to come join in the fun? Would not put it past them. sigh.

Please follow the link below to send Canada a message. Sign the "boycott Canadian seafood" pledge until Canada halts its grotesque and inhumane savaging of the seals at last.
