More “Terms of Endearment”…

I was talking to my sister Marg and laughing so hard that I realized our conversation had the makings of a good article. When Margy and I and our seven other siblings were little my Mother’s terms of endearment went something like this…

“Close your beady little eyes and go to sleep.”

or

“Go to your room and don’t come out until you can be human.”

What was that? I’m no longer human? That one never ceased to amaze me. She made it clear that anyone who would lose their composure (man or child) was no longer human and couldn’t and wouldn’t be dealt with until they were.

I can also recall her saying ” You are enough to make the Saints drink!” or muttering when truly irate, “Jesusmaryandjoseph!” as if it were one word when repeated slowly acted in the same fashion as slowly counting to ten. She used that one a lot.

“Christ on a crutch!” another one. And last but not least, “You’d lose your head if it wasn’t attached!”.

So my visions as a child were the Pearly Gates wide open with Peter quite sloshed sitting around commisterating with all the other Saints ( Bernadette, Ignatius etc.) about what wild children we were, all the while I was searching for my head with it easily recongnizable beady little eyes… My Mom, Ma…

I miss her and would give anything to lay my little beady eyes on her now.

to the blessed virgin…

Dear One,

I find myself after each trial so thankfully talking to you. I find myself looking on my bedside table for your prayer I found in the local newspaper and covered with clear mailing tape so I could keep it there for years without fear of coffee or water or medicine stains harming it. It reads like this;

“PRAYER TO THE VIRGIN MARY (NEVER KNOWN TO FAIL)

Oh most beautiful flower of Mt. Carmel, fruitful vine, splendor of Heaven, blessed Mother of the Son of God, Immaculate Virgin, assist me in this my necessity. Oh star of the sea help me and show me herein you are my Mother. Oh Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and Earth. I humbly beseech thee from the bottom of my heart to succor me in my necessity (make request). There are none that can withstand your power. Oh show me herein you are my Mother. Oh Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee ( say three times.) Holy Mary I place this cause in your hands (three times) Thank you for your mercy to me and mine. Amen.”

This prayer must be said for 3 days and after that the request will be granted. The prayer must be published.

I found this prayer in the local paper years ago and saying it and focusing on it has given me more comfort than I can express. I pray these words all the time now for I find it gives me great comfort when I think of all the ones that have passed I can see them sitting and talking and enjoying each other just as we do here sharing stories about their Mothers and Fathers and the rest of the family just as we do here. And when some really frightening things happen here (as they always will) I go back to this to find comfort in the eternal facts that we are born and we die but the spirit goes on. The troubles that happen here just cannot stop the waves of love the patience and the faithfulness that just is the love between us all. And in the end, my Mother was right…It all will really be O.K.

I see my Nephews and Mom and Dad, my brother in law Frank and all my Aunts and Uncles sitting about talking and laughing as if they were at a party at my Grandma Spellacy’s house. A mighty party, like my parents 25th anniversary party and Mac McAndrews is sitting in the basement at that old upright piano and they are all drinking and singing. My Aunt Marge is laughing and telling another funny story to My Godmother Liz and Ryan and Johnny are swapping stories about their Mothers and Fathers and laughing so. Kelly is still little and beating the pants off of a screaming Dolly Cox in a poker game, and I can see the joy of it all. And thats part of the “succor” that this prayer offers me. A chance to see things that I know in my heart to be true but things we can’t in this world with our eyes focused on the everyday.

We forget the eternal joy. So take a moment and just pray and then just laugh and remember the funniest times with all those guys…For if your heart can imagine these things in a place called home it really is just so. Visit once in awhile by praying and finding that joyous place in your heart and mind. Tell them how you love them and miss them and tell them to have a glass for you in joy. Because that’s just what they mean to you, joy. And have a safe and blessed Christmas and a New Year with filled with great memories and terrific love for those who surround you now. Peace and love and laughter to you all.

And Thank You to Our Lady, for her prayer gives us the time to remember.

For each and every action there is an equal and opposite reaction…

For each and every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Waves matter. Sometimes you can see the waves, sometimes you can feel them. And sometimes you can hear them. Sometimes they can only be found with sensitive instruments.

But what about thought waves ? And their various strengths, the power of will and prayer ?

Do Nuns believe through perpetual adoration in a cloister for example the fate and safety of the world rests? 

And does it?

Does it act as a balance wheel  in the wavestream to the outside worlds craziness? 

Do we only really continue to exist because a few thousand men and women devote their lives to prayer for our continuation, for humanity?

If for each and every action there is an equal and opposite reaction then do thought waves surpass waves in other forms of matter? Are they stronger or more intense or farther reaching?

Say a prayer and peace and love be with you all.

Merry Christmas

Sheila

When is a Corporation not a “Person” in the legal sense ?

When it cannot be sent to do jail time and be rehabilitated. It cannot have the same rights as a person. It has to have the ability to be killed by the state, when it has killed other persons. It has to to have emotions like remorse and love. It cannot be a person because it is incapable of human emotions and taking human punishment because it contains no emotions that are the root of being human. ERGO, it cannot be recognized as a “Person” with legal standing. Laws are for the protection of humans. They were written to protect and govern human beings. They were written to create a fair representation between two human persons in court.

When is a Corporation a Person? Never.

When is a Corporation a Human? Never.

Only Humans can have the rights and protections of being recognized as a “Person” under the law. Because only a person can do the time.

Did you know that MILK doubles your chances of BREAST CANCER ?

I’ve heard a lot about the increase of Breast Cancer in the American Public but I don’t remember ever coming across this fun fact in all my reading about the issue. I find that just amazing. You would think it would be shouted from the hills in this day and age of “Womens Health”.

Did you know that American Milk is banned in Europe and Canada? Do you know why? Because it contains a growth hormone called IGF-1 that cannot be broken down in the stomach and goes right through the lining of the intestine of the person that drinks it and into the bloodstream. It is a KNOWN factor in the increase of Breast (and Prostate) cancers in the United States. It is also a billion dollar  product for Monsanto Corporation.

Why isn’t the super huge charity “Susan G. Komen Foundation” shouting their head off about this? 

Don’t feed it to your babies and husbands and yourself! They should be right out there telling all people to spread the word and get everyone off American Milk with its legal poisons and tell them to eat more dark green vegetables for your calcium, as nature intended. People were meant to go right from breast milk to greens and other sources of calcium.

Please read this article by clicking on this link:  http://www.preventcancer.com/press/editorials/march20_94.htm

They have known this hormone causes Cancer for years and years. So what are we doing to stop the amazing increase in Breast Cancer…we are blaming it on more women getting mammograms and being identified with breast cancer. We are still drinking the milk made in America and treated with this growth hormone for cattle that increases their milk production and kills the recipient by dosing them with this very same hormone that causes breast cancers to double.

MILK : IT WILL DO A BODY TO DEATH !!

*This includes any American Cheeses too, any product made with American Milk.

It’s the small things…

Your actions in your own little life are just as important the big actions government takes when it commits murder, because the big actions that are executed by the state are composed of just a lot of little actions combined. So if you choose to act in your life with kindness and compassion the combination of all of our good works will offset and finally end the murderous works of our own government. You can take back the power by practicing the opposite of what they preach…fear. Act with love.

Just like the effect of a butterfly’s wings on Ocean currents, an act of kindness starts that ripple in the Universe. I just finished the first story in the book “The Red Pony” by John Steinbeck. I am so grateful that man lived and chose to write. In a time when my soul like all of ours is witnessing the demonization on the American Dream, watching our country’s leaders approve cold-blooded murder and torture of innocence we have to realize our responsibility in this. But I can take my tortured soul to the writings of Steinbeck and the teachings of Mother Teresa and see that it’s the little things that you do in your own life that really make an impact on this world. Those little acts of faith shown in Steinbeck’s characters or Mother Teresa ferocious implacable defense of dignity show me that it is a personal responsiblity to be kind to your neighbor. To protect the innocent and to care for the grief-stricken. To do feed the hungry and to shelter the one’s society tries to destroy these are the actions we do every day in our own lives and these all add up to making a real change in the world. It’s entirely different of the “trickle down theory”, as there is no up or down as all souls are equal, in caring for your neighbor your soul has no limitations. I think of the Germans that protected the Jews during the second world war. I think of Yad Vasham, The Hall of the Righteous. And in each era the same things happen. There are bad souls that will hurt and harm for money or power and then there are those whose only interest is in comforting other souls and making their way easier. So it’s the small things that each and every one of us do every day that truly make a difference. You may not be able to stop the President and the Congress from outright murder in our name but you CAN save your neighbors and their  families of innocent children by living your own life practicing kindness and courage and generosity to do what you can to make their way easier. Be that soul who shares the last cup of water or gives that child a sense of safety and certainty that you will be there for them always and in the end all will be well. Be active in being there caring for each other as our fearful leaders are no longer capable of thinking of anything without fainting with fear.  Those of us living on the bottom line realize that FDR really was right, “The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself.”  Just look what its done to our formerly free country.

So remember this and be not afraid, and choose to live your whole life through practice those acts of loving-kindness. Because YOU are changing the very world you live in and YOUR life will have made a difference.

It truly is that simple. It’s the small things…

Even if its only as small as writing to encourage the good you believe in, so others can witness it and practice it knowing it really is all the small things that add up and their behaviour in turn will CHANGE THE WORLD…
