I was just checking to verify that "Jesus" equals 888 in Gematria and I found out a couple of more interesting facts:
Note: The calculation is performed using USA calendar system, and UTC-time, so no local time, leap seconds or daylight saving time is taken into consideration (may be one hour off real difference).
(388888.88888... hours = 23333333.33333... minutes = 1400000000 seconds = 01:05:20)

SpaceShipOne captures X Prize
Privately funded craft reaches altitude requirement
MOJAVE DESERT, California (CNN) -- SpaceShipOne climbed into space for the second time in a week to claim the $10 million Ansari X Prize. X Prize officials said the privately funded craft reached 368,000 feet -- well into space -- Monday to win the $10 million prize. The threshold of space is 328,000 feet.
SpaceShipOne and its mother ship, the White Knight, featured a new paint job promoting Virgin Group, Richard Branson firm, which recently announced a deal to license the SpaceShipOne technology for a fleet of commercial spacecraft. It could also be the most lucrative 3 1/2 minutes in space for the Mojave Aerospace Ventures Team.
Most importantly, says aerospace engineer and spacecraft designer Rutan, it has opened the world -- and a private market -- to spaceflight. "I strongly feel that, if we are successful, our program will mark the beginning of a renaissance for manned space flight," said Rutan in an X Prize statement.
Note: The day of this historic occasion was chosen to coincide
with the anniversary of another historic occasion - the 1957 launch of Sputnik
- the first man-made object to leave Earth's atmosphere.
9:40 AM PDT... That is
EXACTLY the time I looked at the webcam and took the screen
print. Why was I inspired to look at it at exactly that time,
and why was I inspired to take a screen print so that I could prove
it here later? We'll see...
They say that today's eruption was only steam and very little if any ash which causes them to conclude that lava is rising to the surface and heating/boiling the underground water and glacial ice and snow. They say that an eruption of lava is therefore quite possible in the very near future. I wouldn't be surprised it if happens on October 6 as that is Hoshana Rabah (see #126) - a sign signaling the end of the Judgment period, or on November 18 when 12888888 minutes will have passed since its eruption on May 18, 1980.
(Nate made a joke about a fly in a no fly zone which I am still laughing about. :)
What is also amazing about this is that if you read my Chapter 13 - 11:11, you will see that these sky views also coincide with the sky view on December 21, 2012 at 11:11:
PRE-BLAST OMEN: MENACING MOOSE-FLY MONSTER FROM MORDOR
This morning at 9:40 am I turned on the television to CNN. They were doing the weather. The guy said that a disturbance is quickly developing in the Gulf of Mexico and that it has the potential of turning into a tropical storm or even a hurricane. He said if that happens it will be called "Matthew."
That caught my attention because Matthew is the first book of the New Testament in the Bible and is about the genealogy of Jesus Christ - which I have been talking about and believe I may be connected to (i.e. see #135). The guy said they will be sending a plane into this disturbance this afternoon to check it out. He said that if it does develop into a tropical storm or hurricane, the Gulf Coast will probably have less than 24 hours to prepare before it hits sometime tomorrow night. Definitely a story to keep an eye on...
Note: The next storm, "Nicole", headed straight for Nova Scotia. (See #144.)
I decided to click on Discuss to see what people were saying about it. The message I happened to click on said "The End Is Beginning." I looked at the number of the message and it was #555. If you look at my #26 in Part I you will see that 555 connects to prophecy. Also, my odometer turned over to 88555 just this week (see #139).

Why this is interesting is that it was during this same time period that I became aware of those significant facts concerning my birthdate and December 25, 2004. (See #136 and #140.) Perhaps it was "written in the stars" that I would find these out at this exact time.
So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.
In my King Arthur / Holy Grail chapter I explain how continuing this pattern of fourteen generations results in my exact birthdate.

*And look at the time of this picture... 11:11
My Grandmother My Mother
I then decided to look at the sky view on my birth date of August 14, 1960
at 3:33 am (Digby, NS) and found that ORION had just risen over the
eastern horizon and a few hours later at the exact time of my birth at
8:12 am AST (9:12 ADT), LEO had just risen over the eastern horizon.
This all shows that God definitely planned the times of my grandmother's, my mother's, and my own birth dates with the significant "signs" of Orion and Leo pointing straight to JESUS at 3:33.
I then checked the sky view at Craig's birth time of 8:26 am and found that LEO was just about to set in the West. When I checked for the time of 11:11 pm I found that LEO was about in the same position rising in the East.

This past week there were two planes crashes that caught my attention:
1) The first one was a week ago today on October 14 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. (I was conceived in Halifax possibly on 11/11 1959.) We woke up to the news on TV and when I heard it was a 747 (7+4=11; 4+7=11... 11/11) I was immediately afraid that there were many people on board, and I thought about Swissair Flight 111 which crashed 11 km off the coast of NS in 1998. It turned out to be a cargo plane, but sadly all 7 crewmen were killed.

Mo. Plane Crash Kills Eight, Two Survive

KIRKSVILLE, Mo. (AP) - Emergency crews searched woods and open fields early Wednesday for possible survivors of a commuter plane crash that killed at least eight people but left two others with only broken bones.

Last night on television I saw an advertisement for the premiere of a new
television show. I missed the name of the show and when it begins because
what I heard disturbed me greatly. I heard something like, "How many people

Today I went shopping and as I was driving there I looked down and noticed my odometer had turned over to 88800.
"Jesus" = 888 and "The Raised Jesus" = 8880 in Gematria. See # 135.
Again I turned off on a side road and took my camera out and took a picture of it. As I started to drive away I saw a beautiful rainbow in the sky in front of me. It was so amazing to see that just after what I had just taken a picture of. I was awestruck. Definitely a "sign" from God.
It actually cost $333.45
- 333 means Jesus
- I was born at 45°N
Their Number is 662698 66 - 26 - 98
- I was born at 66°W
- YHWH = 26
- '98 is when all this started happening with me - the year of my "awakening"
Their Tax Reg. No. is 88822733 888 - 227 - 33
- "JESUS" = 888 in Gematria
- I was born on August 14, 1960 - the 227th day of the year
- 33 means Jesus

Someone else saw the same beautiful rainbow I saw yesterday. This picture graced the front page of our local newspaper today:

I finally saw the commerical in its entirety. It is for a movie called Unbreakable that will air on the Space channel on November 7. I looked it up on the Internet and it stars Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson. (It was written, produced, and directed by M. Night Shyamalan, who also wrote The Sixth Sense and Signs and other supernatural thrillers. )
Here is the television trailer for the movie:
Doctor to Bruce Willis:
"Your train derailed.
The debris is spread over 1 mile.
You are the only survivor of this train wreck and you don't have a scratch on you."
Samuel L. Jackson to Bruce Willis:
"I know what is going through your mind right now.
You're searching for meaning in all of this.
Know one thing.
131 people died so you could finally understand the destiny for which you were born.
Are you ready for the truth?"
But is anyone else? And really, isn't that what matters?
156) October 29, 2004
Something really amazing and profound happened today.
This morning Nate wrote a letter to me with the subject heading "Arrow Riddle" and said he bet I could see the connection.
He had used timeanddate.com to find the time between these two dates:
From: Saturday, May 15, 2004 12:00:00
to: Friday, September 24, 2004 12:00:00
It is 132 days, 0 hours, 0 minutes and 0 seconds between those dates
Or 11404800 seconds or 190080 minutes or 3168 hours
I immediately recognized the first date as my firstborn son Tyler's birthday, and the second date as Nate's firstborn son Stephen's birthday.
I then saw the number 3168 and recognized that as the value of "Lord Jesus Christ" in Gematria.
(Nate then mentioned that the lead singer of the group Arrowsmith sang the national anthem at the first game of the World Series. I think that is the connection that Nate meant for me to see because the lead singer's name is STEVE TYLER.)
However, I continued on with this and ended up finding something truly amazing...
I went to Google and searched JESUS 3168:
The first amazing thing that happened was that the search took .33 seconds. Remember I said 33 means Jesus?
The second amazing thing that happened was that the second (and third) finds were papers that Nate had written!
BEFORE I met him!
I clicked on the first paper of Nate's entitled Jesus Days. In this paper Nate says, "The "key" in Isaiah 22:22, Hebrew word is x t p m "maphteach" or something like that ..."
This is amazing for one reason because, as I describe at the end of my chapter My King Arthur / Holy Grail Connections, Isaiah 22:22 is very connected to me:
Isaiah 22:22 (22 + 22 = 44)
And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.
(The "house of David" refers to the bloodline of David. See Luke 1:27 and Luke 2:4.)
Before we moved to our current address on McKnight Court in Camelot Estates, we lived at 44 IKEY St. (There were also many interesting connections in that place too.) I will be 44 on August 14, 2004.
It is amazing for another reason because Nate talks about "maphteach" and that is EXACTLY what this paper is about and what I believe a major part of my purpose is - MAP TEACH - to TEACH my MAP of The Way!
Nate wrote this paper on May 2, 2001 (Enhanced 5-21-01) and I did not meet Nate online until June 13, 2002.
From Chapter 9 - THE WAY:
The Bible is "The Word" of God. All scripture is inspired by God (2 Tim 3:16) and through THE WORD, we are taught to "love God and to walk in His WAYS" (Deut 10:12). The Bible has countless references to the WAY and to its PATHS. Some examples are as follows:
Psa 27:11 Teach me thy WAY, O Lord, and lead me in a plain PATH.
Prov 2:20 Walk in the WAY of good men, and keep the PATHS of the righteous.
Prov 2:8 He keepeth the PATHS of judgment, and preserveth the WAY of His saints.
Prov 8:20 I lead in the WAY of righteousness, in the midst of the PATHS of judgment.
Prov 12:28 In the WAY of righteousness is life, and in the PATHWAY thereof there is not death.
Prov 4:14 Enter not into the PATH of the wicked, and go not in the WAY of evil men.
Prov 1:15 My son, walk not thou in the WAY with them; refrain thy foot from their PATH.
Job 6:18 The PATHS of their WAY are turned aside; they go to nothing, and perish.
Prov 4:11 I have taught thee in the WAY of wisdom, I
have led thee in right PATHS.
Nowadays, we hear that we are "lost" and need "direction" in order to "turn
back" to God. If someone is lost and requires direction, what is usually
the most effective tool to help this person find his/her way? The answer
is... a MAP!
My question is: In the history of mankind, has THE WORD ever been described in the form of a MAP? Has anyone ever figured out exactly what these PATHS are and drawn them as a map, thereby "showing" THE WAY? (rather than telling it via words, ie. THE WORD, the Bible). (Not taking away from THE WORD, but complementing it - the Bible tells it, the picture (map) shows it. I'm sure you have heard that "a picture is worth a thousand words." This is because many of us need "to see" in order "to see.")
The best WAY that I have thought of to TEACH my MAP is through my Slideshow Presentation.

Tomorrow is the US Election. Since this seems to be the Year of 44, I am wondering if John Kerry will win because, if he wins, he will become the 44th President of the United States.
If he does, I hope his leadership will lead America in a new direction and not continue in the same WAY it is going now - i.e. see # 158 above.
Matthew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
This new direction will hopefully include a change in direction of social, economic, environmental (i.e. Kyoto), and foreign policies, which will not only affect America, but the entire world.
$$$ can no longer be the bottom-line.
160) November 3, 2004
The majority of the American people have spoken. They do not want change.
But what about the large minority that DO want change? Is it over? No. There is always hope. And it is important to remember that it is not a small minority - it is a large minority; in fact, the country is almost divided in half.
Change IS still possible. Do not give up. Do not concede defeat.

It was thought that the Leonid period was over after 2002 but there was a fair activity in 2003. For 2004, another activity is predicted. Not a storm level, but the Earth will pass close to 2 streams: the 1333 and the 1733. This last stream was already encountered in 2002. The 1333 stream was thought to be responsible from the 1998 storm (Note: That coincides with the time that I started working on my Model of The (Human) Mind, realizing what I had done (figured out The Mind of God and the Map of The Way) the next month on December 12), but not all models agree about that. Nevertheless, the 3 current models (Lyytinen, Nissinen & Van Flandern, McNaught & Asher, and Vaubaillon, Colas & Jorda) all agree for this year: some Leonid activity will occur!
2004: TOUCHING ON TWO DUST TRAILS NOVEMBER 19
Jeremie Vaubaillon, Esko Lyytinen, Markku Nissinen, and David Asher have arrived at a common prediction for this year's 2004 Leonids. It was found that Earth will pass close to two dust trails, those of 1333 and 1733. Any outburst from the 1333 trail will peak at 06:42 UT, November 19, well positioned for U.S.A. observers. Rates will not be high, ZHR = 10 at best. The second 1733 trail will arrive at 21:49 UT, when the rates can go up as high as ZHR = 65. That outburst is best seen in Asia. Even though rates will not be as high as in past Leonid storms, it is important to continue observe these showers to learn how dust is distributed by the parent comet 55P/Tempel-Tuttle. More information here.

Two 18-year-old women die in Long Island car accident
November 5, 2004, 3:55 AM EST
EASTPORT, N.Y. (AP) _ An 18-year-old Long Island woman was arrested on charges of driving while intoxicated after a traffic accident that killed two of her friends, Suffolk County police said. April Brown, of Bay Shore, N.Y., was arrested early Thursday morning after the accident on the North Service Road of Route 27 in Eastport, N.Y. Brown was driving a Nissan Maxima with three other young women as passengers. Police said they were going to visit a friend's house. John Udaze, of Manorville, N.Y., was driving a Lexus SUV southbound on County Road 111 when he collided with Brown's car. Two of the passengers in Brown's car, Heather Brownrigg, 18, of Islip, N.Y., and Jennifer Williams, also 18, of Bay Shore, died of their injuries at Brookhaven Memorial Hospital. The other three people involved in the accident were treated and released.

AURORA WATCH: A series of explosions from sunspot 696 on Nov. 3rd through 5th hurled some coronal mass ejections toward Earth, and they're due to arrive this weekend. Sky watchers in, e.g., Canada, Alaska, and northern-tier US states should be alert for auroras.
EARLY LEONIDS? The annual Leonid meteor shower normally peaks around the 19th of November. This year, however, there might be an extra, early peak on Nov. 8th when Earth passes close to a 1000-year-old stream of dust from Comet Tempel-Tuttle. The precise location of this old stream is uncertain. Forecasters estimate, tentatively, a meteor rate of 50 to 100 per hour--much less than the great Leonid displays of recent years, but still pleasing. Sky watchers in parts of Europe, Africa and Asia are best-positioned to see the Nov. 8th display--if it happens!
A 1000-year-old stream? Interesting...
2 Peter 3
8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

Beijing Man Buys Phone Number for $215,000
BEIJING (AP) - A Beijing man has paid $215,000 for the ultimate in lucky cell phone numbers - 133-3333-3333. The phone number was sold this week at an auction in the Chinese capital, newspapers reported Saturday.
Chinese tradition considers 3 a lucky number and groups of 3's even luckier. Though the number 8 is the luckiest, all Chinese cell phone numbers begin with ``13,'' making it impossible to make a number with all 8's.
Hotels, restaurants and other businesses in China regularly try to obtain phone numbers with groups of 8's. Those that can't wind up settling for groups of other numbers.

Solar activity intensifies, aurora watch extended to Nov. 9th
Big sunspot 696 unleashed an X-class solar flare on Sunday, Nov. 7th, and probably hurled another coronal mass ejection (CME) toward Earth. Solar wind conditions are favorable for a geomagnetic storm now (late Nov. 7th) and may become even more so when the CME arrives. Sky watchers: be alert for auroras on Nov. 7th, 8th and 9th. The best time to look is usually around local midnight.
Today is Remembrance Day, or Veterans Day. It is the day we pause to remember and to give thanks to all those who sacrificed their lives for us.
Perhaps this is another reason why God has chosen 11:11 as a sign to wake us up to the truth...
So that we will make the connection to the ultimate sacrifice - to the most significant One who sacrificed His life for us --- Jesus. [Perhaps this is also the reason for the timing of the movie The Passion of The Christ (2004).]
1 Corinthians 5:7
For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:
32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
1 Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;
2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.
26 For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.
27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

Plague of locusts swarms southern Israel
EILAT, Israel (AP) - Swarms of locusts that earlier plagued Egypt brought their devastation on southern Israel yesterday, devouring lawns and palm trees and causing panic among some children who wondered when the next biblical plague might strike.
The pests have worked their way north since crossing the border on Friday and are on a path that would take them to the West Bank town of Jericho, where U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell was slated to meet Palestinian officials today. The red locusts originated in West Africa and travelled over Libya and Egypt. The insects are present every year in Africa, but the UN Food and Agriculture Organization warned last week that this year's swarms are especially large due to prolonged periods of heavy rainfall. Israel's Agriculture Ministry had not, by yesterday, reported serious damage to crops in the arid Arava and Negev deserts. Ministry planes were spraying onion, pepper and melon fields near Israel's southern borders with Egypt and Jordan. Officials in the Red Sea resort of Eilat said many of the plants and trees in city parks had been stripped of their foliage by the pests. The locusts seemed to prefer palm and olive trees, basil, grape leaves and grass. "If these pests land on my fields, it's all over," potato farmer Menachem Tzafrir told the Yediot Ahronot newspaper. "They destroy a whole year's work in a matter of minutes."
Eilat residents yesterday found their lawns blanketed in red with the insects. Some children questioned their parents if darkness, the ninth biblical plague after locusts, was soon to come. According to the Book of Exodus in the Old Testament, the Egyptians suffered 10 plagues before Pharaoh agreed to let the enslaved Israelites free. Locusts were the eighth plague.
Connect The Dots
"Connecting The Dots" is a very important analogy/key in figuring out what is going on, and in understanding how God works and communicates with us. I have talked about this several times in my paper and will include a couple of places here:
From my Chapter 10 - Message:
Chapter 13 - 11:11:
(Note: This is a prime example of how things "happen" to me - there is no
such thing as "coincidence" - God provides the "clues" or "dots" but it is
up to us to "follow the clues" or "connect the dots.")
I think these "coincidences" (which I have already stated that there is "no such thing as" - they are "clues/dots" to be "followed/connected") are too amazing to ignore.
I have also said in my paper (Chapter 12 - Signs) that many artists are trying to give us messages and tell us things through the lyrics of their songs.
Well... tonight I was given the opportunity to prove this to you. I had to drive my son to a school function and the radio in the vehicle was tuned to the station that he listens to (which is different than the station I usually listen to) so we listened to that station on the drive there. A song came on that caught my ear and made me turn up the volume when I heard the words "connect the dots." I had never heard this song before and did not catch the name of the song or recognize the singer, so I searched for it on the Internet when I got back home. It is a brand new song by John Mellencamp called "Walk Tall." (Mellen / Mullen)
Here are the lyrics, and you can also listen to it here. And guess what... the length of the song is 4:44:
The simple minded
And the uninformed
Can be easily led astray
And those that cannot connect the dots
They look the other way
People believe what they want to believe
When it makes no sense at all
So be careful of those killing in Jesus' name
He don't believe in killing at all
And I wish you a long sight line
And the strength to walk tall
Yeah, walk on
Through this world
Somewhere out in the distance
Is the death of you and me
Even though we don't think of it much
It's still out there for us to see
If you treat life like a bar room fight
You'll die stinking of gin
No drunkards are allowed in heaven
No sinners will get in
Yeah, walk on
Through this world
So be careful in what you believe in
There's plenty to get you confused
And in this land called paradise
You must walk in many men's shoes
Bigotry and hatred are enemies to us all
Grace, mercy and forgiveness
Will help a man walk tall
So walk tall
Yeah, walk on
Through this world
Through this world
Yeah, walk tall
As a Favor to Me (again)...
I'm sure everyone knows about the court case Sheryl is involved in. We thought it would be over today, but an unexpected delay will carry this into next week. Let's refrain from talking about it until I give the green light, please. If you want to keep up with the latest, if you go to http://news.google.com and search "Sheryl Crow" (in quotes) you should get the latest.

Sheryl Crow tells of fear over stalker
By Marcus Warren in New York
Sheryl Crow, the rock singer, was stalked and her family harassed by a former US Navy Seal, a court in New York heard yesterday. The 42-year-old star described the "eerie experience" of leaving her dressing room at a Manhattan concert hall and seeing the former diver alone backstage in October of last year. Her unease turned to fear, however, when Ambrose Kappos, allegedly tried to get into her waiting car and her bodyguards had to intervene. "All of a sudden there's chaos and I'm pushed into the car," she testified at Kappos' trial for stalking and burglary. "They were saying: `back away, back away'."
Kappos was arrested soon afterwards and later claimed in a videotape shown in court that he was Odysseus, hero of Homer's Odyssey, and the singer his Penelope. "She was just shining like a star, like a spiritual star, shining with God's love," he said in the rambling taped confession. "God, I believe, promised me that I would someday get in contact with Sheryl."
Kappos, 38, told police in the tape that he could hold telepathic conversations with the singer-songwriter after drinking two gallons of water, a technique he claimed Crow had taught him. "Maybe I'm crazy," he said, calling her his "spiritual twin". "Maybe they need to lock me up. All I know is that I know what I experienced with her, that she and I are connected in some way."
The trial continues.
"On the morning of September 11, 2001, as word spread of the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, 224 commercial planes were immediately diverted to 17 airports across Canada... but mostly diverted here to runways across Atlantic Canada. These aircraft carried some 33,000 people..." (Prime Minister Paul Martin)
Atlantic Canadians have a long-standing and well-deserved reputation which
was again confirmed during this time. PM Paul Martin quoted a letter written
to a Dallas newspaper by a man from Texas who had been stranded in Canada
for several days saying, "Those Canadians took us into their arms like
The location chosen for the speech was Pier 21 on Halifax's waterfront, for one reason because it is considered "the gateway for many to a New World."
I wonder just how deep the symbolism of this goes...
Bush calls for global cooperation
By Joseph Curl
THE WASHINGTON TIMES
HALIFAX, Nova Scotia President Bush yesterday challenged international leaders to create a new world order, declaring pre-September 11 multilateralism outmoded and asserting that freedom from terrorism will come only through pre-emptive action against enemies of democracy...
To be fair, as I have noticed that this article is being posted on several websites and forums, it should be noted that President Bush did not literally "challenge international leaders to create a new world order." Mr. Bush did not say the words "new world order" or even "new world" anywhere in his speech. I watched the speech live and videotaped it and watched it again specifically to verify this.
I watched the CBS 60 Minutes interview with Bob Dylan last night with great interest. I had read about it a couple of days beforehand in the newspaper and was amazed to see the word "Prophet" associated with a musician. I was sure that others must have also made that connection but I was never able to find any evidence of this in my searches on the Internet. (To see what I have written regarding musicians being prophets, please read the beginning of my Chapter 12 - Signs.)
According to Ed Bradley, Bob Dylan "was called the voice of his generation, and was actually referred to as a Prophet, a Messiah."
But, Bob Dylan denies being a prophet. Actually, what he says is that he "never wanted to be a prophet or a savior". (Neither did Jonah.)
Does he even believe in God? The answer is yes, as evidenced by his statement regarding the press:
Ed Bradley - But let me talk a little about your relationship with the press. You wrote, "The press - I figured you lied to it."
Bob Dylan - I realized at the time that the press - the media - they're not the Judge. God's the Judge. The only person you're going to think about lying twice to is either yourself or God. The press isn't either of them and I just figured they're irrelevant.
(Hopefully he has since learned about Matthew 25:40 "Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me".)
But it is very evident throughout the interview that something very mysterious and secretive is going on with him and that he is not willing to tell all. Even Ed Bradley's opening remarks describe him as "mysterious, elusive, and fascinating." This is mostly evident when he talks about how he wrote his songs "magically", and especially when he talks about "destiny."
EB - I read somewhere that you wrote Blowin' In The Wind in 10 minutes. Is that right?
BD - Probably.
EB - Just like that.
BD - Yeah.
EB - Where did it come from?
BD - It just came. From like right out of that wellspring of creativity, I would think.
EB - That wellspring of creativity has sustained Bob Dylan for more than four decades and produced 500 songs and more than 40 albums. Do you ever look back at what you've written and say "Whoa, that surprised me."
BD - I used to. I don't do that anymore. I don't know how I got to write those songs.
EB - What do you mean "You don't know how?"
BD - Well, those early songs were like magically written. "Darkness at the break of noon, Shatters even the silver spoon, A child's balloon."
EB - This Dylan classic, "It's Alright Ma'" was written in 1964.
BD - Well, try to sit down and right something like that. There's a magic to that and it's not a Seigfried and Roy type magic. It's a different kind of penetrating magic. And you know, I did it, I did it at one time.
Now let's look at how he talks about "destiny." First he describes it as "a feeling" but at the close of the interview he finally reveals the truth about what "destiny" really is.
EB - He says he knew even then he was destined to become a music legend. "I was heading for the fantastic lights," he writes. "Destiny was looking right at me and nobody else." You use the word destiny over and over throughout the book. What does that mean to you?
BD - It's a feeling you have that you know something about yourself that nobody else does. The picture you have of...in your mind of what you're about will come true. That's kind of a thing you kind of have to keep to your own self because it's a fragile feeling, and you put it out there and someone will kill it, so it's best to keep that all inside.
End of the Interview:
EB - Why do you still do it? Why are you still out here?
BD - Well it goes back to the destiny thing. I made a bargain with it, you know, a long time ago and I'm holding up my end.
EB - What was your bargain?
BD - To get where, um, I am now.
EB - Should I ask who you made the bargain with?
BD - (Laughs and gets visibly flustered and begins to stutter.) With with with with with, you know, with The Chief... The Chief Commander.
EB - On this earth?
BD - (Laughs nervously again.) On this earth and in the world we can't see.
So... Did he not just say that he made a bargain with GOD?
And... Did he not just say that Destiny IS God?
Let's work backwards:
He says he made a bargain with The Chief Commander on this earth and in the world we can't see. That would be GOD.
He says he made a bargain with IT a long time ago, so IT is GOD.
He says Destiny is IT, and since IT is GOD, then Destiny is GOD. (Or directly
related to God.)
(If A = B, and B = C, then A = C).
So perhaps there is more to this "Prophet" story afterall, at least concerning God's involvement and direct intervention in his life ["Destiny (= God) was looking right at me and nobody else"], as well as in the lives of other musicians and other people. Like me.
To be a prophet would mean quite a heavy responsibility, one that very few would want to accept. Perhaps that is why so many deny the title or refuse the role - so they can absolve themselves from any responsibility, and the headaches that society would undeniably impose upon them.
EB - Bob Dylan tried to run away from all of that. In the mid 60's he retreated with his wife and 3 young children to Woodstock, New York. But even there he couldn't escape the legions of fans who descended on his home begging for an audience with the legend himself. So people would actually come to the house?
BD - Uh-huh.
EB - And want to do what?
BD - Want to discuss things with me. Politics, philosophy, organic farming and things, you know.
Time will tell...
And why do I keep calling this chapter The La Palma Cumbre Vieja Tsunami? I don't know. Maybe time will tell that too.
[Although I have started to see 515 again quite a bit. Two weeks ago I had an appointment at an eye specialist's. They asked if I knew where they were located, and I said I knew the building but not the floor. They said the fifth floor - Suite #515. (Again the connection to "seeing".) Since then, I have noticed 515 several times, especially on license plates.]
We Can Change Ways
By David Suzuki
"Sometimes, just when you start feeling that everything is hopeless, something will happen to reaffirm your faith in humanity and our ability to get out of tight spots. Last week was just one of those times.
Lately, there has been plenty of depressing news about the planet and the future quality of life of everyone living here. For example, there was the release of the Arctic Climate Impact Assessment. The Arctic has always been expected to be on the leading edge of feeling the effects of a warming planet and this report, the most detailed ever done on a region, tells us that changes are already under way and shows that temperatures in the Arctic are rising at twice the global average.
What does this mean? Well, it means ice may soon not cover the Arctic in the summer. That would be devastating for some species, like polar bears, which require ice for hunting. Not to mention the impact on Inuit people, who also rely on hunting for sustenance and as part of their culture.
Then last week the World Conservation Union, comprised of 800 non-governmental organizations and 10,000 scientists, released its Red List of endangered animalsa list that now numbers 15,000 species (that we know ofand we only know of about 15 per cent of the total). Unless action is taken, one in eight known bird species, almost one in four mammals and one in three amphibians will likely disappear. Scientists say such a rate of extinction has not been seen since the dinosaurs were wiped out 65 million years ago.
But the dinosaurs' undoing was a massive meteor. This extinction, like global warming, is being caused by us. That means we can do something about it. And that's where the good news comes in.
First, Russia officially started the Kyoto countdown last week by presenting its Protocol documents to the United Nations. On February 16, 2005, the Kyoto Protocol will enter into force. For Canada, that means we will have a legal obligation to reduce our heat-trapping emissions that cause global warming to six per cent below 1990 levels. That's not much. Many scientists say that to stabilize our climate, we'll have to reduce those emissions by more like 60 per cent.
Still, it's a start. It's a process of engagement that puts us on the right path. And it will encourage innovation in the renewable energy and energy conservation sectors. That means more jobs. It means cleaner air and health care costs too because we'll be burning less fossil fuel. It's an opportunity to change the way we produce and consume energy in a way that will improve our quality of life.
The other good news is also about energy. Earlier this year, the federal government conducted a public review process to determine what sort of public support there was to lift the ban on offshore oil drilling along the British Columbia coast. Not much, as it turns out. In fact 75 per cent of the British Columbians interviewed said they didn't want offshore oil drilling.
The panel's final report, released last week, noted many clear problems associated with offshore oil drilling including: impacts on First Nations rights, pollution, effects on existing industries like tourism and fishing, damage from seismic testing and many more. It's now up to the federal government to decide if it will listen to the wishes of British Columbians or ignore them and lift the moratorium anyway. The language of the report suggests the former.
This is an important step forward, because the federal government could have simply appeased the provincial government and lifted the ban. That still could happen. But Environment Minister Stéphane Dion has said that he believes the next industrial revolution will be in clean energy and conservation. That's where Canada should be investing if we want to be a world leader tomorrow.
When we put our minds to it, we can solve humanity's challenges, but that means we actually have to try new things. We have to think ahead and change our actions for the better. That's when humanity's at our best and things don't seem so hopeless after all."
Changing our ways IS possible. We just have to "put our minds to it" and "we have to think ahead and change our actions for the better." It all goes right back to Choice and Consequence. Consequences are the result of choices. If we want different consequences, we have to make different choices. And choices are made in THE MIND. In order to 'change our ways' we have to 'change the way we think.' It really is that simple.
And if you want to know how we can do that, see my Slideshow Presentation.
COMET MACHHOLZ: Comet Machholz (C/2004 Q2) has been nearing Earth for weeks and now it's bright enough to see with the unaided eye. The comet looks like a fuzzy 5th-magnitude star near the feet of Orion. Look for it in the southeastern sky a few hours after sunset: sky map.
This is interesting because of its location near ORION (which is a major theme in this paper, i.e. Chapter 14 - ORION):
2) Asteroid 2004 VW14
This newly discovered asteroid will be making a close approach to earth on exactly December 24 / 25, which is Christmas Eve / Christmas Day.
This is interesting to me because, as I found out in October and wrote about in #136, I will be 388888.88888... hours old, or 23333333.33333... minutes old, or 1400000000 seconds old on Christmas Eve / Christmas Day at 01:05:20.
It is interesting that the asteroid is named VW14 and that I will be 1400000000 seconds old then.
The 14 is also interesting because of the 14 generation pattern in Matthew 1:17 concerning the genealogy of Jesus Christ, which I explain my connection to in the first part of my King Arthur / Holy Grail chapter.
1 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 5 x 6 x 7 x 8 x 9 = 14 x 25,920
25,920 is the number of years it takes the sun to travel its cycle around the ecliptic through all the 12 constellations of the Zodiac. If you read my Chapter 13 - 11:11 you will "see" how very important a clue this is in solving the mystery of the 11:11, and in determining the "time" of the "End Times."
The 14th verse in the Bible says:
Genesis 1:14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
This verse is about exactly what I just wrote about above in #183. About lights in the heavens (stars, constellations, planets, comets, asteroids, etc.) being "signs." In fact, my last statement was "A Sign?" Talk about Divine "confirmation."
AND... To top it all off, here is the AOL Welcome screen that greeted me this morning:
Yesterday I bought my sister 'The Holy Blood & The Holy Grail'
book for Christmas.
Last night I was watching Entertainment Tonight on television and
they talked about the movie 'The Da Vinci Code.' It will be
starring Tom Hanks and filming is to begin in the spring of 2005 with the
movie scheduled to be released in the spring of 2006.
Entertainment Tonight also mentioned that this Sunday, December 19
at 9:00 pm et, the National Geographic Channel is airing a show called
'Unlocking Da Vinci's Code: The Full Story'
Today I got an email newsletter from the magazine Macleans and the
subject heading was:
Subject: Cracking the Da Vinci Code
Today I was finishing up Christmas shopping for my sister and a box of fudge
caught my attention. I picked it up and looked at it and was taken aback
to see the words "Arthur's Treasure" on the box and on the ribbon
that wrapped the package. I decided that I must have been "meant" to find
this (because that's how this all works with me) and that it would make a
perfect gift to go with 'The Holy Blood & The Holy Grail' book
that I bought my sister yesterday. Then, when I got home, I was looking at
the box again thinking how strange it was that I would find a box of fudge
that had "Arthur's Treasure" on it, when I noticed, up in the top left-hand
corner, the words "Ste. Julie." (The box cover looks like an old
I believe this is another amazing example of Divine "confirmation" of my connection to King Arthur and 'The Holy Blood & The Holy Grail' / 'The Da Vinci Code' premise that the Treasure / Holy Grail is actually the bloodline of Christ. I have described all my "connections" in my King Arthur / Holy Grail Connections chapter.
