HO'OPONOPONO``` (My Take On It)~~By MysticSilks

Green. Yes, I'll use green to write this article because this color symbolizes healing, newness, and growth. And that's what life, or the living of life should be about.
HO'OPONHOPONO, was a process that I heard about maybe a year ago. My daughter Kim gave me a book on
HO'OPONHOPONO a year ago. She brought it over, handed it to me, asking me to read it and give her my opinion.
I read the first few pages, and had a hard time wrapping my brain around it. Why? Because supposedly a mental health therapist:
Dr. Ihaleakala Hew Len who worked in Hawaii and had cured the entire patient ward in a hospital for the mentally ill by using this mantra: I am sorry, forgive me, thank you, I love you.

Please read the entire story at this link:
But anytime something seems a bit way out, or too easy, I disregard it as hocus-pocus: Another person making money on a new age book.
I set the book on a shelf.
It was maybe six months later that Kim was going to a seminar based on " The Course In Miracles" and she hands me another book" The Disappearance of The Universe." by Gary Renard. Again she wanted me to read it, and give her my opinion. OK, this book I settled into because she kind of challenged me, and because it seemed to make understanding "The Course in Miracles" a bit easier to digest. Now the one thing I noticed was, both books," Ho'oponopono" , "TCIM", and" Disappearance of The Universe" had the same message: Forgiveness!!

As I recall Jesus spoke of forgiveness, " How many times should I forgive if someone sins against me?" Someone had asked Him. " Seventy times seven" He had replied.
As I thought back to that bible passage, I began to think there must be something powerful about the ability to forgive. But, I have difficulty with forgiving. If I've been wronged I want to fight back, to defend myself. If there has been a major injustice done to a child, or someone helpless, I want to pummel the evil-doer with my fists. And yet I have discovered that all the junk out there that makes me so angry also lives in me. And that's why I react so strongly. That's why we all react so strongly; Why we're so ready to electrocute, inject to death those who perpetrate such horrific crimes. We'd rather not have to deal with the 'junk'. We'd rather not have reminders of what we too are capable of.
Well, now I've found that the only way out of the hell we've made on earth is to forgive. When I forgive others, I am forgiving myself, too. Then there is healing. for all of us, for everything, even for the healing of Mother Earth.
I am sorry. Forgive me. Thank you. I love you. This has become my mantra.
Trust me, it's not easy, but it is the only way to peace of mind and heart.

Blessings to all.

Is He Really Really Dead, Usama bin Laden?

Today, May 2nd , I awoke to the news of Osama bin Laden is dead.
But , after listening to the details of the news, and after seeing photos of his compound; the blood soaked floor, supposedly with his blood, I am sorry, like the Munchkins in "The Wizard of Oz", I must ask, is he``` really, really, really dead?
To prove to the Munchkins that the wicked witch was dead, there were the ruby slippers as evidence. But what real proof is there that Osama is dead? There is the words of President Obama. Cough, cough---political drama to assist him in the 2012 elections?
Oh, come on now, some will say. I say . yes come on now, lets look at what we've been shown, and told.
A bunch of Navy Seal helicopters buzzed their way into a pretty populated city in Pakistan;and not a single citizen heard this racket , nor reported it? This was not a silent move in, and kill scenario, then move out quietly. This was an all out automatic rifle assault! Plus the noise of the downed helicopter and none of the police in this city show up? Now also keep in mind this attack was no more than a short distance from Pakistan's military academy. What kind of a military academy are they running, that no one responded to the attack of Osama?
Then the Navy Seals, according to the news reports we were fed, ransacked the compound for computers, then hosted Osama's body aboard a helicopter, off they sped towards the ocean and dumped his body into said ocean.: But they had some of his DNA to match against a sister of Osama: And so, they did the testing of this DNA aboard the helicopter? How did they know the results so quickly? It is of my humble understanding that results for DNA test can take up to at least a week or more.

If I would have been running this mission and wanted it to be believable, I would have stuffed his remains in a body bag along with some dry ice, and brought his remains back to the states with photos of the really, really, really dead bin Laden.

Listen, with this story we were handed , even the Munchkins of Oz wouldn't believe this tale!!
And in addition, were we not paying Pakistan over a billion dollars to up their security on keeping an eye and ear out for Usama bin Laden?

And as Judge Judy has often said, and I quote, " If it doesn't make sense, it isn't true!"

Unfortunately if this story is true , the killing will not put a stop to the terrorists attacks on our country, or in other countries.

The big question is, what will?

Thank you for reading.
