So, for the sake of "identity", a construct is created. IMO this attempt to own what defines "the individual" in the one is creating a chaotic substrate. The attempt to control is instrumented and then strange reactions are observed. So, the way that increasing consciousness may be working is to bring us to face OUR judgements and definitions of "identity" and how we create toxicity and how it may be healed it before it gets projected and becomes poisonous to the whole?

    I want to point out that this interviewer talking about the (Harry Potter) snitch is wrong about what is contained in the snitch. That is how symbols can become corrupted RIGHT THERE. People who had not read the books would not catch this way he actually inverted the symbol....The meme from Century For Self (consumption as freedom) was developed and perfected as people were waking up to being individual...defining individuality by appearance and who has freedom as: "more access to stuff" and using addiction to entrap people......generally subverting authentic creator inspired attempts to find ones own sense of being....

    Entitlement (The Shadow Side of Deserving) - Teal Swan


    "In this episode, Teal Swan exposes a big human shadow, especially in the spiritual field. The shadow that Teal exposes is: Entitlement. Entitlement is a conscious or subconscious belief that one deserves or has a right to certain things that benefit them. They expect those things to be given to them. You can see how this would be a problem if someone believes they are entitled to things from people who would experience a detriment by giving those things. Teal Swan then goes on to explain how to overcome negative entitlement.

    Teal Swan is an International Spiritual Leader. She offers perspective on a wide range of topics including relationships, anxiety, meditation, shadow work, the law of attraction, The Completion Process, healing, PTSD, emotions and spirituality."

    Man Dies Suddenly, Then His Grieving Horse Smells
    His Casket And Breaks Down At The Funeral


    "Wagner Lima, a 34-year-old Paraguayan cowboy, died on New Year’s Day 2017 in a motorcycle accident in Brazil. Everyone who knew Wagner knew what his dear horse Sereno meant to him, and vice versa.

    Wagner and Sereno were best friends for many years.

    Wagner’s brother Wando instantly knew that Sereno should be at the funeral, right alongside his human friends and family members.

    “This horse was everything to him,” Wando told Globo News. “It was as if the horse knew what was happening and wanted to say goodbye.”

    Wando led an emotional march to his brother’s final resting place in the city of Cajazeiras, Brazil. Sereno marched with them, but no one in the procession expected just how the grieving horse would react when he got close enough to Wagner’s casket to pinpoint Wagner’s scent.

    Wando says he will now be taking care of Sereno in his brother’s honor" ...

    Passing it on ...



    Rare Astrological Event—all of the Planets Align & Turn Direct: It’s Time to Leap.

    On Saturday, January 7th, we will experience a rare astrological event—all planets will turn direct.

    During most years, at any given time there is at least one planet in retrograde motion, however it’s not unusual to see a few in that motion as well—but rarely, do all the planets turn direct at the same time.

    This phase of action will last until February 6th when Jupiter turns retrograde.

    The reason that this is such a big deal is that it’s happening in a very auspicious manner. Venus has moved into Pisces, and Mercury is turning direct at the start of the New Year.

    It’s clear that this is a time for movement, for action and for exploring whatever it is that has been calling to us for some time.

    Astrology is not about a one-time chance that will never happen again—we just have the option as to whether we are going to walk in fully into what is waiting for us, or if we will need a gentle push in the right direction.

    What is meant for us will always hit its mark in our lives right on time.It’s not possible to mess up our life’s plan so severely that we feel desperate and without hope.

    Yet, even with that being the case, sometimes the divine orchestrates such an event that it’s impossible to ignore.

    We missed something—something big—something that, quite possibly, we didn’t think was meant for us.

    We left it behind in 2016, thinking that it was over—that we were making the right choice and that we had better things waiting for us.

    We thought we were being adult about it.

    But really, we missed an important part of a conclusion we drew too soon.

    The thing is that we can say we are moving on, and that we are going in a new direction, but sometimes—no matter how far we move—the divine force in this world moves us right back to where we were.

    With Mercury just ending, a fog is lifting, and there is clarity about a situation we had thought was all figured out—and because Venus, the planet of love, just turned direct in the loving and ethereal sign of Pisces, it seems that there is a matter of the heart that hasn’t yet been decided.

    No matter how much we think we know the ending, sometimes the universe shows us that this was only the first act.

    This next month—whether we want it to or not—possesses the ability to change everything in an instant.

    Where you once felt stuck, things will suddenly fall apart to reveal new information and alternate endings you could never have imagined.

    Where you once struggled could give way to ease.

    And indecision could suddenly become nothing but a faded memory of a time when your head and heart fought battles over your future.

    The truth is that no great moment comes without first creating chaos, so the potential is there for January to be like that child’s snow globe that they can’t resist shaking up just to see what might happen next.

    But that’s also what we have to remember—none of us knows how this will play out, and none of us knows what the ending of any of this will be.

    We are being guided though, we are being given clear heads and courage—moments of realizing exactly what is occurring and what those feelings are that flutter throughout your heart.

    In February, we will have the last eclipse in a cycle that began last September, so anyone who thinks that they can just leave 2016 in the dust hasn’t really understood that the reality is there are never any true endings.

    Situations morph, evolve and transition—sometimes more beautifully than we could ever anticipate.

    The one thing that we have to remember during this month is that we aren’t being fooled. Perhaps this month, more than any other in a very long time, we will see clearly the matters of our hearts. We will find the words where we previously struggled, and suddenly sense will be made from everything that has transpired for perhaps the past few years.

    Once in a while there is a stitch in a time—a moment where things just suddenly fall into place.

    A moment occurs when the planets truly align at the finger of God, and all along we realize that this was his plan.

    Perhaps we will finally understand that we were never off course—we’re just blind to the destination.

    All of this means something. There are no coincidences—only synchronicities.

    It’s been said that we can ask the universe for all the signs we want, but that ultimately, we see what we want to see when we’re ready to see it.

    January is asking us just one question: “Are you ready?”

    Are you ready to see everything that you were too scared to open your eyes to before? Are you ready see the life that is meant for you?

    Perhaps there are no final choices or endings, but once in a while, the universe and God conspire to give us a chance at having the life we’ve always prayed for—our only job is to listen.

    Our mission this month is to be open to change, so we can let ourselves be led to where we need to be, instead of planting our feet in resistance.

    Because once in a while, miracles really can happen—but only if we let them.

    Question

    Speaking of being open to change ...



    California murder convict becomes first U.S. inmate
    to have state-funded sex reassignment surgery


    "A 57-year-old convicted killer serving a life sentence has become the first U.S. inmate to receive state-funded sex-reassignment surgery, the prisoner's attorneys confirmed Friday.

    California prison officials agreed in August 2015 to pay for the surgery for Shiloh Heavenly Quine, who was convicted of first-degree murder, kidnapping and robbery for ransom and has no possibility of parole.

    Quine's case led the state to become the first to set standards that will allow other transgender inmates to apply to receive state-funded sex-reassignment surgery. It also prompted a federal magistrate to require California to provide transgender female inmates housed in men's facilities with more female-oriented items such as nightgowns, scarves and necklaces.

    “For too long, institutions have ignored doctors and casually dismissed medically necessary and life-saving care for transgender people just because of who we are,” said Kris Hayashi, executive director of the Transgender Law Center, which represents Quine and other transgender inmates.

    Completion of the surgery not only fulfills a landmark legal settlement but marks a victory “for all transgender people who have ever been denied the medical care we need,” Hayashi said.

    Quine will be moved to a women's prison after the operation, which was performed at a hospital in San Francisco, her attorneys said.

    The daughter of Quine's victim said she objects to inmates getting taxpayer-funded surgery that is not readily available to non-criminals, regardless of the cost.

    “My dad begged for his life,” said Farida Baig, who tried unsuccessfully to block Quine's surgery through the courts. “It just made me dizzy and sick. I'm helping pay for his surgery; I live in California. It's kind of like a slap in the face.”

    Quine and an accomplice kidnapped and fatally shot 33-year-old Shahid Ali Baig, a father of three, in downtown Los Angeles in February 1980, stealing $80 and his car during a drug- and alcohol-fueled rampage.

    California was legally required to pay for the operation, corrections spokeswoman Terry Thornton said.

    “The 8th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution requires that prisons provide inmates with medically necessary treatment for medical and mental health conditions including inmates diagnosed with gender dysphoria,” Thornton said in a written statement.

    California corrections officials had fought in court for years to avoid paying for sex-reassignment surgeries. In one high-profile case, the state paroled Michelle-Lael Norsworthy in 2015, just one day before a federal appeals court was to hear her request for state-funded surgery.

    Quine told a prison psychologist who recommended her for the operation that it would bring a “drastic, internal completeness.”

    She expects it will end a dysfunction and depression so deep that she tried to cut and hang herself in prison five times, most recently in 2014 when she initially was told she could not have the operation.

    Quine said she tried unsuccessfully to amputate her genitalia when she was about 19, three years before she went to prison and roughly the same time she tried self-medicating with illegally purchased female hormones.

    Joyce Hayhoe, a spokeswoman for the federal court-appointed official who controls California's prison medical care, said the cost of sex-reassignment surgeries could approach $100,000, including procedures and medications before and after the operation.

    Attorneys at the Oakland-based Transgender Law Center said that figure was exaggerated.

    A portion of the state's expense generally is reimbursed by the federal government, Hayhoe said. The percentage varies depending on individual circumstances, but it can cover up to 95% of allowable charges."
