Post No. 1,008 - Some Personal Reflections: Courage and Ethics, and Change



I’ve been watching the film Hacksaw Ridge - with considerable difficulty, owing to internet interruptions associated with wind and a network that our housemate, who works with PCs, mobile phone apps and the internet, compares unfavourably with the internet speeds of places such as eastern Europe (actually, I started this during a 3 hour break at about 1 hr and 20 minutes into the film because of these problems … I hope former Communications Minister, now Prime Minister, Turnbull is pleased with his [catastrophic?] changes to the NBN … - although those changes did save something, when compared to what cretins in their neoliberal party wanted to do. Of course, after watching the film I had to spend a considerable amount of time clearing the units that had been drawn in – including several people who had died in that and similar battles and been earthbound ever since).
I’d been reluctant to watch this film, owing to concerns that Mel Gibson may be pushing his pro-Christian/neochristian agenda, and the possibly gratuitous nature of the portrayal of violence (some of it was, but most of it was contextually plausible – and, based on the comments of those who were there, realistic) … however, the film does actually portray the moral struggles and terrifying situations quite well.
Bravery comes in different forms, and moral/ethical bravery is as valid as physical courage.
In the case of the film, Doss’ courage in insisting on his right to serve as an unarmed medic is moral courage (I’ve generally thought I would volunteer for bomb/UXO disposal if I was in a similar situation, but there are situations where I possibly would fight … a point the film “Dances With Wolves” makes in the context of this flawed world).
Can I recommend the film? Well, it is graphic enough to be disturbing to some people, who may lose the consideration of moral aspects in their distress, but for consideration of courage, it could be a useful stimuli – e.g., something to watch before meditating on the nature and forms of courage.
(Note: fearless means an absence of fear, and thus there is way someone who is fearless can be brave or courageous, in my view … to be brave, you have to overcome your fear – and suppressing/denying fear is NOT the same as fearless.)
Courage is something that is often needed in the workplace.
As an example, standing up to pressure to change a report to something that is less clearly against a development proposal, or resisting pressure to present information more favourably, rather than honestly, following proper QAQC procedures rather than creating approvals after the event, pointing out when restructuring is going to have disadvantages, etc. Back in the 80s, I even pointed out to one company I worked for that I would refer a matter to the Ethics Committee of the Institution of Engineers Australia (they back down, so I didn’t need to).
What can one lose from that? One’s job, any sense of belonging (I am getting used to being a pariah in the workplace), and, in the case of major whistleblowers (e.g., see here, here, and here), one’s sanity/wellbeing. In extreme cases, one can possibly lose one’s life, as Karen Silkwood did, – although watching one’s loved ones suffer as a result of losing a job/pay cuts/etc is probably more distressing. Sometimes the lack of obvious loss or injury makes the situation harder – as too often happens with mental illness.
(These are also situations that I was thinking about when I wrote my post about “lifestyle vulnerabilities”).
I lost the argument about changes in my workplace in the 80s which was part of the workplace war which led to the current neoliberal nightmare that afflicts the world now. I suspect the people I was contending with didn’t realise that their efforts to alter a static situation would lead to people wanting to take things a bit further than those who went before (and thus one could say, perhaps, the economic rationalists led to the neoliberals, as an example), but in my opinion, they should have had that vision/insight/understanding.
Less obviously, or less directly, perhaps, failing to stand against decisions that will result in ecological damage could possibly be a failure of courage, but, in any case, there is a lack of vision/insight/understanding (on that, I was appalled to discover that one of my senior colleagues is a climate change denier).
As an extension of that, arguments that business is simply “giving people what they want” also do not stack up morally/ethically/spiritually or, in some cases, environmentally. There are extreme examples of that, but, more recently, a number of advances in technology that are considered by many (not all – when people assume something they like and find convenient is the same for others, they are showing their lack of life experience and/or stupidity) have potential disadvantages around loss of privacy.
(There is also an issue of balance here. I read a comment last year that a manager didn’t want his employees to be able to do maths in their head/recall things if it detracted from their ability to think of the big picture. I can do basic maths fairly easily –f roughly – without a PC or calculator, and I appreciate the ability it gives me to keep my mind a bit sharper, but it is not a substitute for allowing a PC to do complex calculations so I can take a step back and look at the bigger picture.)
Of course, there can be a problem with all this when the values one are showing courage about are wrong – e.g., spiritually immature (such as the neochristian resistance to LGBT rights) or unbalanced (such as neoliberalism, or communism). Another example of that would be those Germans who supported – or started off supporting – the excesses of Hitler and his goons, and subsequently found out about the Holocaust (which was generally earlier than the end of World War Part Two).
On that, my dreamwork last night included gaining an awareness of people in families and larger groups who stayed loyal to the family, no matter what “side” of a conflict or issue they were on. It left me thinking of how “family values” can, in some ways, be harmful to the Family of Humanity – and of how contemptible some people’s values can be, when they make their loyalty to whoever is winning, irrespective of the rights and wrongs of a situation or issue. (I will be doing more clearing/healing work on those people in coming days and weeks.)
Such situations are probably easier to handle if one hasn’t dug oneself into a moral hole by one’s vehemence ... Arguing politely has its advantages :)
And, on the topic of change, my partner has been working on a “self reflection” for her counselling and psychotherapy masters, based on events in one’s early life that have had a major influence on oneself.
In my case, the event that came to mind as having had a major influence on me when I was young was a documentary about the “Indian Mutiny” of 1857, watched while we were at my (adoptive) father’s grandmother’s house. She had an old “Queenslander” (see here, although that doesn't fully make clear that this style of house was found throughout Queensland - the one I am referring to was in Rockhampton), with massive verandahs that our beds were typically on, covered by mossie nets (which made some of the nights even more hot and uncomfortable). Well, I had nightmares triggered by the brutality and butchery shown (and that not very graphically, by today’s standards). However, those nightmares were a key step in me developing my determination that the world be a better place.
(I also felt quite a bit of empathy for the depiction of Abraham Lincoln’s son as having nightmares after seeing photos of slaves in the film “Lincoln”. I also understand the concerns of the parents that the nightmares not happen, but I can state – from my personal experience – that, in at least some cases, the nightmares can lead to something better.)
Another major influence on me, one that I have written about and critiqued elsewhere, was the very controversial Lobsang Rampa.
On the topic of change, I have planned for some time to write an article about “my escape from pugnacity”. The problem is, I don’t consider I have properly escaped from that way of reacting to situations.
However, as a result of my increased self awareness, particularly from the personal growth work I did in the 80s, I am often able to choose to work with this as a tool, much as I have worked at changing how I use anger. I aim to channel anger constructively (as passion, in a sense); pugnacity tends to crop up when I feel people are aggressively trying to push/bully/railroad me into their views, and I use it as a defence to get those people to back off and let me work through things at my own speed – in that sense, it is about assertive self defence. However, it can also manifest in a more negative form of defensiveness, and that is where the comments I made earlier about not having vehemently dug oneself into a hole are useful.
Courage to accept change, particularly when one is wrong, can also help.
And finally, I’d like to end with a few reading links.

Post No. 1,007 – Psychic Weather Report No. 0109



There is an introduction / reminder / explanation about these posts here (and also see here for some investigation into evidence of the effectiveness of this type of work, which shows variability [and mentions causes] and cycles in the energetic/consciousness response), and some additional comments at the end of this post, just before my signature block. Please also note that I hope this work will be taken up by a network of competent dowsers and BPM psychic warriors.
Now, as you read this, consider this: how does one outflank an idea, or attack an emotion in the rear? It is as well to consider what those who are unbalanced could do to good ideas and emotions, as well as considering BPM ways to outflank or ‘attack in the rear’ bad ideas/emotions. Also consider geopolitics, and this mapping exercise.
As a first point, it is also recommended that you read yesterday’s summation of world events.
This week’s assessment and plan:
Significant features this week are the high levels of BPM energy in Europe - which is largely the defiant response to the violent extremist attack in the UK - and some areas affected by that, the shift of nonBPM energy to some of the oceans and the Arctic (where few people tend to think to look, let alone work with), and ongoing problems in East and South East Asia and southern Africa.
My approach this week will be (incidentally, if you disagree, please use your own interpretations, or your own divinations):
  • Bindrune:
  • Sunday: the purpose of this day’s work is, mainly, to build a reserve of BPM energy to call upon during the coming week. In addition to the meditation / clearing work described below, I will also be working on making sure I, my crystals and my other tools / devices are as fully charged with BPM energy as I can make them (which is something I have posted about elsewhere, but may post more about in the near future):
     - clear nonBPM units from, and send BPM energy to the North Atlantic Ocean, Europe, Russia, Central and South (aka “the Indian subcontinent”) Asia, and the Indian Ocean, and to all actual and potential BPM Leaders, and for all humans to recognise the essential shared humanness of other people and to choose to live modestly;
  • Monday:
     - clear nonBPM units from, and send BPM energy to South (aka “the Indian subcontinent”)and West (aka “the Middle East”) Asia, all of Africa, and the Antarctic;
  • Tuesday:
     - clear nonBPM units from, and send BPM energy to North America and the Arctic;
  • Wednesday:
     - clear nonBPM units from, and send BPM energy to South America and the South Atlantic Ocean;
  • Thursday:
     - clear nonBPM units from, and send BPM energy to East and South East Asia;
  • Friday:
     - clear nonBPM units from, and send BPM energy to Central America and the Pacific;
  • Saturday: this day will now be reserved for rest, recuperation and healing – of all those who are trying in a BPM way to make this planet a better place, not only of myself and those who are sharing this work. I ask that any and all healers who wish to contribute to this, take a few minutes to contribute to this on this day.
Remember, the meditation (see here, here, and here) consists of:
 - appropriate and responsible protection (see here, here, here), prayer and ritual (e.g., here) to establish and check protection (re-do or re-schedule, if you don’t feel safe and secure);
 - personal connection to Higher BPM influences;
 - flush one's aura with emerald green, royal blue and royal purple;
 - fill one’s Heart Chakra (and maybe one’s Earth Star, Solar Plexus, Third Eye and Crown Chakras) with emerald green, royal blue and royal purple; send a weave of three streams of this colour from the Chakra(s) to a visualisation of a gigantic, multi-faceted emerald (which has been created to facilitate networking of BPM workers) through your facet until you see your energy enlivening other areas of the emerald and can feel similar energies flowing back to you;
 - visualise the sequence of runes / bindrunes (if given);
 - generate feelings of love, peace, joy and respect;
 - strengthen those feelings (energies);
 - radiate those energies to the world for nine to eighteen minutes;
 - close your chakras, centre yourself and close your aura, use the banishing version of the LBRP to open circle, ground and release all excess energy; and make sure you are grounded and closed down – eat, if you need to, or seek help from someone capable and trusted.
Important note: although I show the flow of energy using arrows, they are really - to continue the weather chart analogy - more like the passage of a frontal system as shown on a synoptic chart. Also, if I ever miss doing a Psychic Weather Report, I have posted a standard, fall-back, default version here, which I will update from time to time when needed.
Irrespective of this assessment, however, please join us in trying to make sure that the Shield of Hope area formed by (part or all of) the South Atlantic Ocean, Southern and Eastern Africa (including both sources of the Nile), the Indian sub-continent (including the Himalayas) and the Indian Ocean, shown outlined in gold on this week’s energy map, consistently has BPM energy at or above 7 by the time Neptune leaves Pisces, on around 30th March, 2025 (a date which has an eclipse the day before). If you wish to do a little more coordinated action on a positive strategic front, I'm also planning on routinely sending BPM energy to Hong Kong, Tunisia, and Mexico, which show potential as "outposts of the BPM” and I wish to encourage their change for the better, and through the Red Sea and Suez Canal to the Mediterranean Sea and the Black Sea.
I have a simplified blogiography of posts related to this work here, a list of themes I have identified here, and my changing the personality of oppressors and other world leaders post is here. It is also worth contemplating that one of the greatest weaknesses of those who oppose Balanced Positivity is the inherent pain, suffering and negativity of their aims and means – from the personal slights, insults and traumas left by the petty tyrant, autocrat, dictator/monarch or the ruthless (some at least are not; some are BPM) oligarch or politician, through the social dislocation of the economic ideologue to the long-lasting trauma, injury, death and desolation of society caused by those who use violence or war as a means to achieve power or impose their will. It may take time, but people WILL eventually realise what is not good, and will take action – which is why slavery is no longer ubiquitous, and why the march to freedom and democracy is underway – tentatively, and with backsliding and mistakes along the way, but inexorable nevertheless.
Also, if you’re interest is healing, I have changed the way I do these posts to more clearly show opportunities for doing healing. Those interested in providing protection for others always have a place – refer to the first item from yesterday’s summation of world events (details and link below), for instance. Finally, a reminder that if none of this is of any interest to you, but you would still like to contribute energetically / psychically to making the world a better place, there are other options –for instance, see here, here, here, here, here (and here), here, here, and here – and, no doubt, many other places on the internet.

Post No. 1,006 – For Sunday evening’s meditation-clearing


Note: I am NOT a journalist, and make NO claims to objectivity or freedom from bias: the purpose of posting these news links is not only to inform:   it is also to stimulate a connection to nonBPM units that need to be cleared and BPM units that need to be strengthened, so that you can do the clearing / strengthening that is required.   That only works if you don’t let yourself be overwhelmed by this, so take it in small chunks if you need to, but remember to actively clear and heal! … including yourself. Also, the energies we use and manifest in our daily lives contribute to the larger soup of energies that influence world events, so address those as well. The reminders / explanations about Sunday’s meditation-clearing are here;   see also here,   here,   here,   (here and also here and here are interesting),   here, here,   here,   and   this post reminds us to be patient and persistent, like a “speeding oak”. Finally, there are some notes at the end of this post about other options for those who do not like this way of working.
The themes that come to mind for my work this week, after I review all this news, are:
(a)   based on my interpretation of information here and here with Saturn in Sagittarius contributing to finding an authentic balance (until 20th December, 2017), Uranus in Aries contributing to fresh and possibly radical starts (until some date in the Year 2018), and Pluto in Capricorn contributing to a transformation of power and business (and careers) (until some date in the Year 2024), conditions are ripe for a change for the better in world politics;
(b)   there is an enormous need to clear nonBPM energy – the thought forms, unattached energy and scars of the collective unconscious created by millennia of violence, including spirit rescue, and healing the warped views, seemingly “inherent” biases, and other damage created. Also, remember that:
        1. the counter to fear is
genuine  EQ and clear thinking, expressed through calm, de-escalating speech,
         2. where problems exist, advocating for
BPM responses, and being as BPM as one can be, are constructive solutions,
        3. peace is powerful, but it is a process requiring patient, persistent and nuanced nurturing, and a blend of conventional spiritual work,
clearing nonBPM units, and physical world activism;
(c)   viewing the overall emotional state of the world from an elemental point of view, this week we need more of the empathy/compassion of BPM Water;
(d)   for this week’s work I have selected the rune Berkana:
(e)   dealing with the current US President, for whom I use the alias Voldemort, requires:
        1. eroding
(i.e., slow, patient and persistent clearing of the little bits one can SAFELY cope with – remember, you are but one of many) the nonBPM influences feeding his arrogance and mind-set, and strengthening Voldemort’s BPM Guides and giving them whatever BPM help they need to present a BPM alternative – for which my “changing the personality of oppressors” post is useful – with a view to promoting what would seem to be a change of heart,
        2. lifting the nonBPM influences from the shoulders of Voldemort’s marginal supporters, allowing them to “come to their senses”,
which may result in them feeling bewilderment/shame, and simultaneously strengthening the BPM influences around them (e.g., their BPM Guides) to counter them backsliding,
        3. to address the others, physical world activism
(especially education) is required. As well as doing what one can there, help those who are doing this work (e.g., sending them “positive vibes”) and look for nonBPM blockages that can be cleared (e.g., setting up a BPM vortex above meetings to draw away external nonBPM influences/energies/
units, so that the audience can listen as they are, without any obsession/possession);
(f)   the major events this week are:   the disasters in Syria, Yemen, Libya, North Korea and places in central and east Africa, including famines that are being ignored, have continued;   discussions about the nature of the EU;   continuing intransigence in West Asia;
(g)   the need for good education, including teaching people to think, to counter lies/propaganda is very apparent this week;
(h)   discrimination, bigotry and hate continue to be problems (particularly in the USA’s Deportation War), as well as the fragility of egos when it comes to matters such as education o overcome these;
(i)   the problem of the bias of self interest and one’s own culture affecting the media;
(j)   ongoing attacks on human rights (especially privacy);
(k)   reluctant implementation is making the change to more sustainable electricity generation and lifestyles, at times, chaotic;
(l)   the has been some good governance and accountability;
I also take this opportunity to emphasise that it is absolutely VITAL that this psychic / metaphysical / spiritual work be performed non-violently and as is for the Highest Spiritual Good – which is part of being BPM – on all levels and in all ways. Always remember (see here): Do you fight to change things, or to punish? See also here, here, here, here, here, and my comments about “authentic presence” in this post.
News and other matters from this week include the following (opportunities/good news are shown in green; comments are shown in purple; WARNING: some of these links may contain triggers around issues such as violence, sexual assault, discrimination, etc).
  • Permanent issue: may all actual and potential BPM [1] Leaders be kept BPM safe, including keeping them undetectable to the nonBPM and keeping all their Significant Others inviolable against being used for indirect  psychic attack, and may they have all the BPM opportunities and assistance (so-called “good luck”) for them to be BPM effective at influencing the world’s direction, development and unfoldment, all as is for the Highest Spiritual Good;
  • Permanent issue: may all humans recognise, irrespective of the appearance of difference, the essential shared humanness of other people, the inherent resilience, the dynamic power, the strength of BPM collaboration, and the opportunities of having a diverse, inclusive and welcoming population, and may all people choose fairness, when such decisions are before them;
  • Permanent issue: may all humans choose to live modestly – to forgo outdoing others, or trying to have more than they need - for the sake of an easier, more manageable life, if they cannot do it for the sake of the planet;
  • Matters warranting particular attention:
       humble people make better decisions;   science is claimed to have shown being kind is good for one’s health, and that Nature makes us both happier and kinder;   a warning that cutting foreign aid makes the USA less safe;   a review of the world’s “pressure points” (hot spots);   a call for a more radical form of feminism;   teaching philosophy could help to combat violent extremism;   a call for “historical sensibility” when considering the attacks on liberalism;
  • With regard to democracy (which requires  protection of minorities and the vulnerable – and remember Gandhi’s question about whether one is fighting to change things, or to punish, and the list of 198 methods of nonviolent action), freedom and governance (e.g., here, here, here and here, and see also here):
    Note: I have a section specifically for the current US President below
       -   analyses this week include:   the state and history of populism;   an article on “framing leaders as ‘entrepreneurs of political ideas’ ”;   the development of a “three sectors solution” for delivery of government services;
       -   of concern this week:   despite their claims to the contrary, Australia’s neoliberal government has bowed to pressure from the far right and watered down protection against racism;   Mauritania is considering abolishing its Senate;
       -   in the grey area or neutral this week:   “A US diplomat has been expelled from New Zealand”;   in Zimbabwe, a call for “presidential elections next year [to] be conducted by a committee set up by the United Nations and African Union”;   Canadian Muslims are joining the conservative party to prevent a Trump-like candidate being elected;
       -   good news this week includes:   a German candidate is taking an anti-populist line;   “The days of debt crises and the World Bank telling African nations what to do are over;   The Gambia will set up a Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and offer reparations to victims of the former government;
       -   and in my home nation this week:   sexism and ageism in politics;   underemployment has hit 11%;   the Reserve Bank is increasingly concerned over the risky state of Australian households;   Australia is more restrictive on the ILO recognised right to strike than the USA or the UK;   Australia’s Commonwealth Parliament House will get some bee hives;   a review of Australian-Chinese relations;   another warning that Australia has a housing price bubble;   a politician who rorted his allowances may be investigated by police;   “A controversial work-for-the-dole scheme in Aboriginal communities will come under parliamentary scrutiny amid concerns it is punishing vulnerable Australians”;   Australia’s neoliberal Government has made another step in its campaign to turn Australia into a heartless, uncaring mini-USA;   Centrelink and a US contractor it uses appear to have erred severely in their “management” of the case of a boy dying of cancer (the comments about an individual worker’s alleged harassment are irrelevant: the company is meant to know what its staff are doing – after all, the company IS responsible, legally);   legislation to improve child care options has progressed, as one MP gave an emotional and well received speech about the struggles of single parents;   a regulator needs to do more in the life insurance market;
       -   this week’s atrocity alert at R2P lists Democratic Republic of the Congo, South Sudan and Syria;   the imperative for transatlantic cooperation to prevent and stop mass killings;
  • With regard to the current US President (who I consider seriously dangerous, and NOT at all a buffoon) this week:
    I deliberately avoid using the current US President’s name for valid psychic reasons: however, to both simplify my typing and remind people that he is dangerous, I will use “Voldemort” as alias.
       -   the US White House is reported to have installed political aides at Cabinet agencies to be Voldemort’s “eyes and ears(from a comment on this on LinkedIn: “… warned against plans to install a general system of spying on agencies whose heads are not considered as Trumpist-at-heart. One way this would be enforced … was for the WH to choose the deputy of each of the suspects. ... This is a Soviet-style system of political commissars where Steve Bannon and his new ally Reince Priebus will likely call the shots”);
       -   the US House intelligence committee says it has seen no evidence to show the former US President tapped Voldemort's phones during last year's election. The FBI has also debunked the claim, and confirmed that it is investigating links between Russia and the campaign team of Voldemort;   the Republican head of the US House of Representatives Intelligence Committee has apologised for the way he handled sensitive allegations about US spy agency surveillance of Voldemort's team
       -   the “sanctuary” movement is fighting on in parts of the USA against the wave of hate led by Voldemort, as the Deportation War steps up;   an analysis of legal aspects of Voldemort’s travel ban;
       -   concerns that a foreign affairs advisor to Voldemort has Nazi links;   a warning that cutting foreign aid makes the USA less safe;   inflammatory statement made in the past by the USA’s new Ambassador to Israel;
       -   Voldemort has claimed Germany owes the USA money, which is disputed by Germany;   an interview with Voldemort has included that he relies on “gut instinct;
       -   Voldemort’s nominee for the vacant position of the US Supreme Court has said some reasonable things during his confirmation hearing, but opposition is growing;
       -   Voldemort is reportedly being hardline about repealing Obamacare which led the repeal bill being withdrawn– see also here, and this article on the lesson on the differences between politics and business that this constitutes;   Voldemort has met with a group of all male advisors to consider women’s health benefits … ;
       -   an examination of Voldemort’s war against the media;
       -   a call for the “adults” in the US administration to show integrity;
  • With regard to violent extremism (VE) (aka, terrorism - e.g., Da’esh) (ALL people advocating hate or discrimination in response to violent extremism are actively doing the work of violent extremists, including those who use the acronym ISIS (see also here, which is actually the Greek name of the Egyptian Goddess Aset) and actively perpetuates the patriarchal and sacrilegious evil that VEs are trying to accomplish in this world (see also here, here and here). This will be countered, in part, by the sort of approach advocated by “Cure Violence”, and, in part, by addressing real and perceived disempowerment and acknowledging the variety in what provides genuine, BPM fulfilment as a counter to fanaticism as a source of meaning. I am deliberately avoiding the use of specific names of violent extremist groups as much as possible to reduce the publicity they get – I’m not a primary news source, and thus consider I can do so):
       -   violent extremist attacks/acts have occurred this week in the UK (by a home-grown extremist, not a refugee - which led to some gung-ho haters Rambo-ing in over a photo of a passer-by apparently being indifferent, but there was a good response, including from the photographer, but also a response from an idiotic far right extremist politician in Australia that has quite rightly been ridiculed … see also here), Nigeria, Egypt, Somalia, Chad, and, according to this Wikipedia page, there has been 1 attack in Iraq (out of a total 17);   prevention has or may have occurred in Belgium;
       -   the USA has banned electronics in carry on luggage from some nations (which has, when tried before, led to an increase in thefts). The UK has joined this – see also here;   Canada has apologised to Canadian men who were tortured in Syria;   an Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade review into World Vision funding in Gaza has uncovered nothing to suggest any diversion of government aid funding to Hamas;   “In a sign of Germany's hardening attitude to security issues, a federal court has approved an order to deport two men … despite the fact that they have not been convicted and were born in Germany”;   internet privacy protection rules in the USA are heading towards a roll back;
       -   teaching philosophy could help to combat violent extremism;   another examination of the link between cutting aid and violent extremism;   an article of what counter violent extremism should avoid;   criticism of the UK’s counter violent extremism strategy’s focus on religion rather than violent extremist ideology;
  • With regard to refugees (noting the New York Declaration):
       Canada’s (supportive) response to refugees crossing its border;   aid is needed for 370,00 internally displaced people in the “Democratic” Republic of Congo;   the experiences of the refugee who founded “Students Against Racism”;   Uganda is at breaking point as South Sudanese refugees pour in;   200 refugees have drowned in the Mediterranean;   a call to read “They Cannot Take the Sky”, about life in Australia’s refugee gulags, to counter Australia’s toxic politics;
  • With regard to human (and other) rights and discrimination:
       -   on homophobia/transphobia this week:   “Homophobia is costly to workers and the businesses that employ them, research shows. Unfortunately, it's still prevalent in Australia”;   changes for the better have happened in one Australian state;   with the support of some government Ministers, Australian business leaders are continuing to support Equal Marriage, despite the criticism of some bigots in the government;   an interesting article which points out that the term heterosexual used to mean an “abnormal or perverted appetite toward the opposite sex”;   a "homophobic, archaic and outdated law" that allowed gay panic as a partial defence for murder has been FINALLY been removed in Queensland – after lobbying by a Catholic priest;   Germany will quash 50,000 convictions for homosexuality, which were made under a Nazi era law;   a fascinating before and after duet;   Japan has adopted an anti-bullying policy aimed at protecting LGBT students;   YouTube has been censoring LGBT videos;
       -   on racism this week:   indigenous families are fighting to stop a second “Stolen Generations” happening;   an interview with an award winning poet whose writings include work about the Stolen Generations;   despite their claims to the contrary, Australia’s neoliberal government has bowed to pressure from the far right and watered down protection against racism – see also here Almost all the debate about repealing Section 18C in Australia misses the fact that it will send powerful messages out into the community: encouragement of bigots, who don’t care about the legal technicalities, and fear to their victims, who see little point of trying to use a system which is advertised as being against them;   the Aboriginal Legal Service was not allowed to speak to a Senate committee examining the government’s bill designed to … [water] down race hate laws;   some sharing of Australian indigenous words;   a reborn ceramic venture;   “A controversial work-for-the-dole scheme in Aboriginal communities will come under parliamentary scrutiny amid concerns it is punishing vulnerable Australians”;   a warning that UK schools are segregated along class and ethnic lines;   another reminder of the indigenous links to Aussie Rules – extended to also include the violence of the Frontier Wars and the colonial mentality;   the experiences of the refugee who founded “Students Against Racism”;   an article on “long grassers;   the problem of indigenous suicides continues;
       -   on sexism this week (keeping in mind the overblown influence given to testosterone):   sexism and ageism in politics;   the stories of child-free women, including the bigotry they face (population growth is a problem, so there needs to be more people choosing not to have children);   there is a need for better court – and media - procedures in my home state around sexual crimes;   a global review of “the glass ceiling”;   the Northern Territory has FINALLY decriminalised abortion;   Australia's world-renowned Rape and Domestic Violence Services Australia phone counselling centre is facing possible closure;   a private organisation is stepping into the gap left by police in Spain to ensure victims of domestic abuse are protected;   the medical system is oblivious to the pain of the 10% of women who have endometriosis (the work system is also oblivious);   a call for a more radical form of feminism;   the story of the first woman to officially run the Boston marathon (why wasn’t the appallingly bigoted official who tried to tear of her number charged? He had nearly been charged for assault before!);   “the dark side of gender segregation in the military”, and “the war for the soul of the [US] Marine Corps”;
       -   on other forms of human (and other) rights this week:   a human rights activist has been arrested in the UAE, leading to fears he could be tortured;   Australia is more restrictive on the ILO recognised right to strike than the USA or the UK;   a prominent Brazilian land rights activist has been murdered by gunmen at a hospital in Brazil where he was recovering from a previous assassination attempt;   Pakistan has reinstated secret military courts, despite criticism from human rights activists;   the need for better management of disabled people in Tasmania;   the value of work done by (unpaid) mental health carers;   a fast food company in the USA has been sued for not including available features in its menu technology to make it accessible for the vision impaired;   the 2017 Corporate Accountability Index has been released;
  • With regard to crime, judicial matters and policing:
       a report on problems drug which has the backing of former police commissioners, … a former Supreme Court Judge … has noted that despite more than 80,000 arrests in Australia each year, there has been a continued rise in diseases, injuries, crimes and social costs, and therefore recommends decriminalisation, harm minimisation, and other measures;   there is a need for better court – and media - procedures in my home state around sexual crimes;   gravely concerning allegations that a youth worker gave a child drugs;   as four youths win a court case (although some claims were rejected) for their treatment after being tear gassed, the horror stories from the enquiry into youth detention continue;   a suggestion to learn from those successful US measures used to fix their formerly broken youth detention system;   a warning to young people in NSW that, if they receive illegal material on their phones, they must speak up immediately;   a drug-affected man who set his children on fire has pleaded not guilty because of mental impairment: from my perspective, he and the doctors could be correct, and he could have a mental illness, or he could have been possessed/obsessed, but, in any case, it was his conscious decision to smoke dope, and spiritually he is responsible for that;   prejudice over skin tone in Asia;   appallingly, some leaders of a religious group in my home city thought reporting child abuse to the police was a sin, and ostracised those who did;   the ICC has, for the first time, ordered a war criminal to pay reparations to victims of his atrocities;
  • With regard to press aka the media, and freedom of expression (keeping in mind that claims of presenting “both sides” of a debate can be WRONG if the other side is RUBBISH –as is the case on LGBTIQ issues: having an “equal say”, or a “right to respond” MUST be assessed in the context of what is happening overall in society – NOT solely in one limited incident):
       Australia’s trust in the media is lower than in overseas nations, although lower than which tends to vary a bit;   an examination of the current US President’s war against the media;
  • With regard to overcrowding and “modern” lifestyle issues (is YOUR smart phone free of conflict  minerals, environmental harm and child labour? IT manufacturers are making some effort in on those. Do you suffer from FOMO? Is your social media making you miserable or envious? Are you being duped by modern mantras? Does your AI use ethics? Does your corporation misuse mindfulness as a distraction from working conditions? Do you understand embedded emissions? Do you want a bigger, flashier home/car than people had 50 years ago – which means you are actively abusing the environment and society’s cohesion and contributing to the problem of financialisation?):
       -   the sad history of electrical power generation in my home and an adjoining state, and concerns over the effect of closing a major coal-fired power station – see also here for similar problems in the gas industry, here for a longer term view, and here for a call for more stability (from my point of view, it was sad that government forced, in the 50s, the closure of anything outside the Latrobe Valley that generated power – I saw a boiler from a biogas-driven electrical generator at a wastewater treatment plant that had been the victim of that approach: it is ironic that we are now reinventing that exact same past technology);   new technical standards for windfarms to reduce the risk of supply stability problems;   a possible move to land-based salmon farming;   one of the options being considered to reduce the environmental impact of surfing is lemon grass foam;   the stories of child-free women, including the bigotry they face (population growth is a problem, so there needs to be more people choosing not to have children);   advice for urban fringe dwellers on how to avoid harming wildlife;   on World Water Day, concern over the impact of population growth, warnings of scarcity and calls to recognise wastewater for the resource it is;   the UN has called for better wood-energy conversion technologies;   the UN’s World Meteorological Organisation has warned that 2016’s extreme weather is continuing into 2017 (report is here);   yet another report that planting trees has benefits;   trials of a new approach to generating hydrogen;   healthy soil is essential for a healthy life;   three rivers have been recognised as legal persons;
       -   a man has been arrested for planning and sending a tweet intended to cause a seizure – which it did (if true {not proven until found guilty in a court of law], this is incredibly concerning. Those who jumped on the bandwagon later are also in questionable territory … );   some people are still experiencing problems with mobile phone bills, largely over a few apps;   indigenous people in Guyana are using phone apps to help protect their land;   recycling of “e-waste” (as with all such schemes, this is good in terms of recovering material, but there is some energy usage/GHG generation – e.g., the shipping the components overseas for further processing);   use of a plasma flame to prevent mould may reduce wastage of food;   a DNA discovery could pave the way for anti-ageing and anti-cancer medicines;   internet privacy protection rules in the USA are heading towards a roll back;   Kenyan technology is being used to gather data to fight the East African famine;
       -   a teenager’s petition has led to a – much needed - cut in car parking fees at hospitals;   allegations that “Americanisation” of Australia’s workforce may be leading to safety and other problems;
       -   micro-apartments;   changes to help the aged live at home for longer, as concerns are expressed for an elderly veteran who has been denied a visa (after years of waiting);   a car park will be replaced with open space in my home city;   the UN has invented a term for one of the key problems I see with housing: financialisation – with some suggestions about what to do about this;   an article on the oft-neglected “Generation X(I always felt more like Generation X than a Baby Boomer – except for the drugs [on that – which has been a problem through all recent generations - and older ones - I was, in the words of the 60s, born “square”]);   an unusual suggestion for “personal user manuals”;   a small country town in Queensland that I spent my teenage years and early adulthood in is finally starting to deal with mental health issues;   concerns that the shift to the NDIS may cut life saving mental health programmes, but an article here on the housing benefits;   as retirees are increasingly forced to use their superannuation to pay off mortgages, my home state wants the Australian government to do more for affordable housing;
  • With regard to education:
       an alleged rape in a school in the USA has triggered a range of other issues, including anti-refugee sentiments: the school seems focused on student safety, however, which is good, but no-one has made any comments about the rapes committed by non-immigrants;   a warning that UK schools are segregated along class and ethnic lines;   a young philanthropist in my home city has started a series of “schools for peace”;   a call for better training of teachers in Tonga after physical discipline of a child led to hospitalisation;   claims that poor behaviour in schools is “not taken seriously enough”;   armed groups in the Central African Republic are occupying schools, thereby stopping education;
  • With regard to the conflict in Afghanistan (noting that Afghanistan was once a peaceful and modern society, even allowing women in miniskirts, before the Russian invasion – see here):
       the aftershock of a recent attack on a hospital;   an assessment of US options with regard to Afghanistan;
  • With regard to Africa, the Africa Center for Strategic Studies (and other sources) has:
       -   “The days of debt crises and the World Bank telling African nations what to do are over;
       -   Stressing the importance of remembering [the horrors of] slavery and slave trade in human history, the legacy of which “resounds down the ages,” [the UN] Secretary-General [has] highlighted the contributions that people of African descent have made and are continuing to make to their communities and to the world” (to which I would add that slavery is still continuing … );

       -   the Southern African Development Community has declined to accept applications from Burundi and Comoros;
       -   Mauritania is considering abolishing its Senate;
       -   in Zimbabwe, a call for “presidential elections next year [to] be conducted by a committee set up by the United Nations and African Union”;

       -   a review of Australian-Chinese relations;   China has - stupidly – denied it is militarising the South China Sea;   bigotry against AIDS in China;

       -   a militia leader says he now wants all militia – including his – disbanded … ;   the experiences of those fleeing Mosul – where hundreds of thousands are trapped, and “the worst is yet to come”;   a call for the US administration to learn from previous mistakes;   another assessment that Iraq may “lose the peace” after it recaptures Mosul;
       -   and the Iraq Body Count project reports 669 civilians violently killed in the last week;

       East Libyan forces have exhumed and abused the bodies of enemies, and committed other war crimes;   the USA is concerned over growing Russian influence in Libya;   women and tribal leaders have called for a balanced peace process;
  • With regard to Russia (which is currently supporting an – in my opinion, based on R2P principles - illegitimate regime in Syria), Russian influenced nations and eastern Europe, and responses:

       commenting that the conflict was targeting children, food trucks and even fishing boats (over 100 civilians have been killed in just the last month [and I have read reports of hundreds of deaths per week of children from preventable causes as a result of the conflict]), the UN human rights chief has urged those fighting to work towards a ceasefire and to allow humanitarian aid to get through to millions of people in need;

  • possible lessons from the past: here and here;
  • my home state has dithered over safe passing distances for bicycles;
  • an act of gross disrespect has occurred at Auschwitz.
(Dear Reader, please remember, I expect you to think when reading this blog, and I reserve the right to occasionally sneak in something to test that)
Now, some general comments/information.
Many others are very capably doing this type of work – for instance, the Lucis Trust's Triangles network (which has been running for many decades),   the Correllian Tradition's 'Spiritual War for Peace' (see also here, here, and here), the Hope, Peace, Love and Prosperity Spell (also from the Correllian Tradition, in around 2007 or 2008),   the Healing Minute started by the late, great Harry Edwards (running for decades);   the “Network of Light”  meditations;   and   also see here and here – even commercial organisations (for instance, see here), online groups (e.g. here and here – which I do not know the quality of) and even an app. Thus, if you don't like what I am suggesting here, but want to be of service, there are many other opportunities for you. Again, activism in the physical world is also required - see here, here and here, here, and, of course, here.
(Please note that I now specifically have a role for (absent) healers on Saturdays, as explained in the Psychic Weather Report posts. Anyone who wishes to be protector has a role every day :). At all times, on all levels and in ways, BOTH must ALWAYS be BPM in the way they perform such roles.)
If I am ever late getting my Psychic Weather Report up any week, there is a default plan.
