Member: Bring4th_CarlaLisbeth Location: Anchorage, KY Gender: Female Interests: Serving the Creator and my other-selves, singing, reading for fun (romances, sci-fi and mysteries) collecting recipes, eating out (I love to do that!), hanging with St. Luke's Episcopal Church community of worship and singing in the choir, making the Law of One information more easily available, writing on a the second book of a three-book series on the principles of the Law of One, reading other channeling and spiritually oriented books, learning about bio-dynamic gardening and living, patting our kitties and keeping up with friends.
In June of 2005 I kept a daily journal on a speaking trip to Britain and decided to keep the daily entries going on my return. If you would like to keep up with L/L Research and our activities, this is the place to do that. Nowadays it is Jim who writes the daily entry, and Gary writes the blogworthy report (the bulleted list) detailing his and Austin's work at the helm of the L/L ship. We wish you blessings, light and love! Carla L. Rueckert-McCarty and Jim McCarty. To view the Camelot Journal archive, please visit http://www.llresearch.org/journals/journals_camelot_toc.aspx.

It was such a joy to wake up with Carla and greet the new day. We did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. Mona came by this morning and applied silver nitrate to Carla's wound. She also told us that she has been in contact with the back surgeon's office, and we will attempt to get a surgery date set for two or three weeks from now and then let her hematologist know the date so he can be sure that Carla has enough hemoglobin to have surgery.
After lunch I ran some errands and Carla was visited by Bethany who did her nails with a lovely navy blue with sparkling hearts. Then she French-tipped Carla's nails with the classic white.
I read some to Carla this afternoon from Adventures of the Soul where James Van Praagh differentiates between the soul which is growing and evolving and the spirit in each soul which is part of the One Great Spirit in all things and which is whole and complete.
Gary and Austin were producing good work once again in the L/L office:
Daily social media sharing.
Responded to some seeker inquiries.
Continued the digitization of the channeling archive.
Processed the PO Box mail, including some prisoner updates.
Fixed a batch of errors on the archive website, including:
Corrected a date on a transcript.
Removed and/or merged a series of duplicate transcripts.
Then sent two emails: one to eagle eyes Terry Hsu who discovered a couple of the typos, and one to a French seeker named Filip who a couple years ago discovered a dozen or so duplicate/overlapping channelings thanks to a memory that must be like a steel trap. Many thanks to Terry and Filip!
Continued work on the new online store, including a breakthrough for Austin that showed him how to modify the code, thus solving, in this case, the problem of books we do not inventory or sell ourselves but through another service called CreateSpace. How to remove the "add to cart" feature for those books in the online store was a challenge.
Finished off a couple more sections of the new online store, including the "Friends of" and "Channeling Audio" sections.
Caught up with Kim T. on the interview project transcription, and likewise with Aaron T. who also send some recommended material from Alice Bailey's work on initiation. It's been many years since last I read any of Bailey's theosophical writings.
Continued working with Andreas on the production of the Russian Book V. Getting the font right for Cyrillic has been a bigger consideration than either of us had imagined.
Took dictation from Carla in replying to questions from Manuel on a Spanish transcript and helped her to move through her inbox.
Received from Jochen his first annual activity report as part of his work in representing and bearing the name of L/L Research. It was a PowerPoint no less. Thank you, Jochen!
Drew up a draft for a few amendments to the German Licensing contract and sent it off to Jochen.
Corresponded with Garry on his upcoming attendance of Homecoming, sharing with him our stories of our first experiences. In my case, my reminiscences took me back to Chicago, 2001, where I met DW and Mandelker, the first contacts I made in this small nook of the world glued together by the Law of One material.
Updated the Bring4th News section with a note about In the Now going on hiatus, and also requesting volunteers for transcribing episodes of "In the Now" http://www.bring4th.org/news/index.php?newsid=140. We're not channeling, but I am usually quite amazed what the four of us can collectively do with human reasoning informed, we hope, by intuition. I've left multiple shows buzzing with polarity, enjoying the comradery and mutual exploration of a shared topic.
For our evening we watched some Modern Family episodes and then did our protocol to the Classic Rock & Roll Station because there is no Classical Music on AT&T's new music provider. Then I watched the undefeated Kentucky Wildcat basketball team barely survive their game against Georgia to go 30-0. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. She was able to solve today's crossword puzzle but after that she was very sleepy and seemed to be a good deal weaker in her legs and being able to transfer from her bed to the bedside commode. Her hearing and eyesight continue to give her fits.
I did some research on how to make one's body a donation to the University of Louisville Medical School when the time comes. Then shortly after lunch I was off to our family doctor to have labs done on the blood that was drawn from me. I'll go back next Monday to talk over the results with Dr. Hamad. I wonder if she agrees with the news report last week that cholesterol is no long a major worry for people.
Gary and Austin were their usual busy selves in the L/L office today:
Processed and shipped a book order.
Responded to several seeker emails.
Continued the digitization of the channeling archive, including repairing a cassette.
Retrieved mail from the PO Box, and in addition to the usual mail and the prisoner mail, there were two Law of One-inspired books sent by their respective authors to be added to L/L Research's in-house library!
Sadly canceled the "In the Now" program for this and coming weeks. Carla's ears have recently taken a turn for the worse. Her hearing has dramatically decreased coupled with the sensing of her own heartbeat in her ears. Austin and I send you all our love, Carla!
Also for that reason had to cancel a couple personal counseling sessions with seekers who had hoped for one with Carla, pending hearing back from us when her situation returns to working condition.
And then updated the website to reflect Carla's current unavailability for counseling and channeling services, and issue notice of "In the Now's" hiatus.
Investigated the nagging question of how to fax a legal-sized document. With no answer, got a good friend on the horn who had a fax machine, tested it a couple of ways, and badda bing. The receiving fax just reduces the page to 8.5 x 11. Riveting, I know. But it took time.
Worked with Manuel on the process for Spanish translations, and on creating a Spanish-English glossary that will contain the questions asked Carla about the meanings of words/phrases, and the Spanish words/phrases subsequently chosen, for the benefit of all Spanish translators.
Then wrote Veronica and Gaby, the Argentinian Spanish translators, about the protocol.
Did lots of mod correspondence over some recent issues, resulting in, among other things, what amounts to an essay authored by Austin on the challenges of navigating between two opposite poles of thought when moderating.
Worked with Andi on the formatting for the Russian Book V. He was running into some snags in terms of whether to create a style set for the book that won't be used, especially considering that we can't use our house font because it doesn't handle the Cyrillic alphabet. But after some diligent research, discovered how to acquire a premium version of the font that does format Cyrillic!
Received from Daniel the Portuguese translation of Book II!
Received back from Morgan the work she was able to complete on the French 101.
Then got the original to Jochen, asking him where he stood on formatting the French translations, as Andi has ahead of him the Russian Book V and the Portuguese Book II, and Jochen is taking over responsibility for publication of the French translations.
We stopped reading Your Soul's Gift by Robert Schwartz at Carla's request as the last topic was suicide and was too difficult for her to hear, and then we began reading Adventures of the Soul by James Van Praagh. His work is much the same as that of Dr. Michael Newton, Dr. Brian Weiss, and Robert Schwartz except that James Van Praagh is himself a gifted medium who has undertaken this research as such and receives the same information on pre-birth planning and the time between incarnations as the first three authors.
We did our protocol to the music of Celtic Thunder, and Irish singing group who sang the traditional songs of Ireland and also a few selections from the United States. We also watched a few episodes of Modern Family before we united our mind/body/spirit complexes in a very simple yet magnificent expression and exchange of the best of our vital energies. It was a gift that put a smile on our faces and all the way to our toes. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

We welcomed the first day of March with eager anticipation of the eventual ending of winter since we know that the first day of spring is buried somewhere towards the end of this month.
Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. Carla's wound looks good and healthy and her appetite and exercise program is the same. But she was not able to be on the radio with Wynn F. today because of that rushing pulse sound in her right ear that makes hearing difficult.
We got her bedding switched out this morning and early this afternoon we got her purple hair washed clean and fluffy. We put a little of her Jadore perfume on and with her sparkly nails Carla was the epitome of hospital chic for the rest of the day.
I noticed that the fountain in the side fish pond had lost its foaming nozzle and the water was shooting ten feet into the air, so I got another nozzle tip and plugged it appropriately to slow the flow of water so now the fountain only shoots up about four feet. That means plenty of oxygen for the fish!
Gary brought Carla a special meal of Fettuccini Alfredo from KT's as he was coming over for our silent meditation. It had been well over a month since we had a Sunday night meditation and it was good to get back into the practice. We each talked about our experiences, both spiritual and mundane, for the last month and then meditated for about 20 minutes before calling it a night.
Carla and I watched some of Justin Hayward singing Moody Blues' songs with other musicians filling in for the rest of the band, and that was pretty good since he was the voice of the Moody Blues, but we eventually switched over to Classic Rock & Roll for our protocol. We were surprised to discover that AT&T, our television provider, has switched over its music programming from Music Choice to Stingray which has no Classical Music offerings. A salient omission, we feel. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Today would have been Don Elkins' 85th birthday. He never would have wanted to be that old, so we simply salute him on this last day of February and remember him with smiles and affection.
Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. The silver nitrate has given her wound that healthy red glow, like hamburger! She continues to do her exercises in bed each day and is eating well. We weighed Carla today and she has gained four pounds since getting on the appetite stimulant and nausea reduction meds.
Carla passed up the usual radio show with Wynn F. today as she still has that rushing pulse sound in her ears that makes it difficult to hear what people are saying on the telephone. So she napped this afternoon and I watched both the Louisville vs. Florida State and Kentucky vs. Arkansas basketball games. Victories for both my teams!
After the last game Carla and I were thrilled to watch a special program produced by our local ABC station about Muhammad Ali, Louisville's Greatest. It was a wonderful story about how Cassius Clay was raised in western Louisville in the ‘50s and ‘60s on Grand Avenue and how the people there were all part of forming his character and the character of all the kids in the neighborhood. The story covered his rise to prominence in the boxing community with his blinding speed of hands and feet as well as his earning of the name the "Louisville Lip". It covered his conversion to Islam and his refusal to fight in the Viet Nam War because of his religious beliefs. That unpopular choice cost him the three best years of his fighter's life, his boxing license, his passport, and his ability to earn a living. In 1970 the U.S. Supreme Court reversed his conviction and vindicated him with its decision that his civil rights had been violated. Today, even with Parkinson's disease, he is dedicated to the concepts of peace and conflict resolution through the Muhammad Ali Center in the heart of downtown Louisville. He is the most recognized human on the planet and a man of total unconditional love.
Carla and I also got to see a little bit of an old special celebrating the artists of Motown and that recording scene. Then we also watched some of a repeat program of James Taylor and Carole King. It was a night full of music and magic. I even danced some to Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit". I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. Mona came by this morning and put silver nitrate on Carla's wound. She commented that just the one application last week, after a couple weeks off, was enough to get the wound back to a fresh, deep red. Mona also said that she called the plastic surgeon and told him what we were doing with pumping up Carla's hemoglobin for surgery, and he said that he is ready to go when needed.
Just after lunch I vacuumed our bedroom carpet and then deep steam cleaned it as the recent number of spills on it called for its cleaning. The noise almost drove Carla nuts, so I gave her my noise-cancelling headphones for her ears. She looked rather stylish for the duration of the work.
Our evening was full of NCIS and Modern Family, mystery and laughs, a lot like real life. We did our protocol to the Classical Music Station and then we decided to have a date and we rode the Great Wave of Light and Love. It was glorious, uproarious. So very like us.
Then to finish off our celebration of the day we listened to what was probably the best WoodSongs Old Time Radio Hour that we have ever heard. First up was Baskery, three sisters from Sweden who the announcer said combined the best of Dixie Chicks and Led Zeppelin. They played an upright base, an electric banjo/guitar, snare drum, and guitar. For a kick they sang a Swedish drinking song a ‘Capella and each of the three was singing a different melody line. Then they cut loose with their own quirky and catchy style and brought the house down. Following them was a group of five musicians who belonged to three different groups before they jammed together a few years ago and discovered that they were like soul mates of sound. You could tell that it had taken them years of practice to sound so relaxed and on-time with their country/rock groove. Their name is Willie and the Sugarcapps. Each of these two groups echoed in music Pablo Picasso's famous quote, "The greatest hindrance to creativity is good taste." I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. The wound is looking redder and healthier even though the drainage has slowed three days after the application of silver nitrate. Carla's appetite remains pretty good as is her plumbing.
Caroline E. dropped by from St. Luke's Episcopal Church to give Carla communion and Carla was happy to receive it as this spiritual food feeds her very soul.
After lunch today Gary and Austin joined us for the Blog Talk Radio Show and Carla riffed on how each of us sees our own good and bad qualities in each other as we mirror to each other what is most notable in ourselves. She had to ring off when it became time for the others on our panel to speak as she became able to hear her pulse rushing in her ears and when someone else was speaking she couldn't make out any words. It was frustrating for her, but there was nothing that could be done about it.
Bethany came by after the radio show and did Carla's nails in a bright and sparkly multi-colored bed of glitter. Having newly painted nails also tends to brighten Carla's day and she enjoys feeling "done unto".
Gary and Austin were working hard all day in the L/L office:
Joined Jim and a partial Carla for this week's episode of In the Now. In this episode we discuss: - Seeing oneness in seemingly different people. - Owning a firearm. - The time between incarnations for both positive and negative entities. Available for download or streaming here.
Replied to Jochen re his compilation work "Essence", hardcover book, and general plans for future work.
Relistened to the final two chapters that are strictly L/L Research biography.
Put heads together on several rounds of moderator work.
Continued the digitization of the channeling archive.
Did the weekly keeping of the books.
Daily social media sharing.
Processed and shipped book orders.
Helped Carla respond to emails by taking dictation.
Corresponded with Lanny about the Law of One Instagram.
Finally solved two persistent issues with the new store, nearing completion.
Finessed the letter to the adept to perfection and sent it off to him along with a set of Lo1 books.
Our evening was full of the usual suspects on television and we did our protocol to the Classic Rock & Roll Station. Then I read to Carla from Your Soul's Gift where the question was being explored as to why some people would program an incarnation of poverty, "There are souls who have exploited others in previous lives, taking wealth away from them and using it for themselves. These souls may feel the need to experience the other side of the coin, to feel what it is like to be exploited and humiliated so they will understand the preciousness and value of each human life. We are not punished for previous bad behavior, nor are we judged. Instead, we ourselves often choose to experience that which we created for others. From the level of the soul, we view this as a step along the evolutionary spiral." I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. Things don't change very fast with Carla's wound, but recently her eyes and ears have deteriorated so that it makes it difficult for her to see the crossword puzzle from the newspaper in the morning, even though it's been enlarged with our copier. And it is also nearly impossible now for Carla to read her kindle even with the largest print on her computer screen. The same for her solitaire card games. Her world of experience is getting smaller, but she says that it's OK and not to worry. But I feel so bad that she is not able to do the few things that she used to be able to do and that her world has gotten smaller. She doesn't complain. She just enjoys being alive.
After lunch Carla and I went to see her pain management doctor and actually saw one of his assistants, a new one who had never met Carla before. When we filled the assistant in on Carla's condition I think the poor lady was blown away that one person could endure so many medical difficulties over the last four years. As usual, we celebrated getting back home by taking a nap.
Gary and Austin were producing lots of good work in the L/L office today:
Processed a few MP3 orders.
Continued the digitization of the channeling archive.
Gathered questions for this week's (potentially cancelled) In the Now.
Continued with the finer tweaks and testing to get the store ready for launch.
Corresponded with and received a prisoner letter from Azeem, sent it on its way.
Finished the letter to the adept along with the collection of Ra. We'll see how and whether it goes.
Austin sought out help from the OpenCart community for the persistent template bug he's been trying to solve.
Received the transcript for the section on "Spiritual Principles". Thank you, Aaron T! This leaves two remaining.
Finished the process of uploading, creating "download items," and creating product pages for all 106 Ra session MP3's for the new store.
Enjoyed Barbara Brodsky's journal entries of her time spent at the "Cassa" in Brazil, the facility wherefrom John of God performs his healing service: http://archives.deepspring.org/Barbara/Journals/. Printed some entries up in visible-from-space-sized font for Carla to read as well. Thanked Barbara for the link and including Carla in her prayers.
Received a report from Edgard after a long absence. His professional life is as busy as ever. His Android book is doing well and the editor is pressing him to make a course of it. (If you are reading this and are in the gaming industry in the US, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, or Europe and can provide some assistance - Edgard is working hard to find employment outside of Brazil. Please contact us.) But that means he has been slow on the "Scholar's" work, but intends to resume ASAP.
Had a day of organizing, cleaning, and tidying up the joint. On the computer that is. Desktop got itself a cleaning, and years of accumulated bookmarks got an overhaul to make it a more lean/efficient bookmark machine.
Began work on constructing the new Translations forums. When it's all said and done we will have ten new forums. While that makes the moderators' heads spin, what's fascinating is that number also means L/L's material has been translated into ten different languages! Don Elkins would surely be content with that knowledge were he here.
For our evening we enjoyed the block of NCIS on television and we did our protocol to the Classical Music Station. I read to Carla from Your Soul's Gift where it was explained that, "When a soul has learned its curriculum, then the learning can be brought back and is useful for all souls. I may never meet in the flesh one who has spent many lifetimes in France, China, or on the planet Neptune, but what they learn is freely shared with me and may make the experiment and learning I choose more efficient and profound". I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. Carla's wound had better drainage today but there is a dark red area in the upper right hand side about the size of a quarter. Mona said that might be a deep tissue wound that developed while Carla was getting her infusion Sunday in an unfamiliar chair. Carla's appetite is good and she continues to do her exercises in bed each afternoon just after I do mine.
Gary and Austin joined us for lunch and Gary showed us the rest of their pictures from Gary and Trish's honeymoon last November in Peru. They were adventurous souls in a strange and exotic land and the distant shots of the mountain ranges were stunning.
I spent most of the afternoon studying information that our angelic care-giver emailed to me concerning how to get the best use out of our alternating air flow bed, the best configuration for chucks and bed pads under Carla, and thoughts on how Carla transfers from bed to bedside commode. She is thinking of starting her own home health care service and is studying for the state exams in her area.
Gary and Austin kept churning out good work in the L/L office today:
Enjoyed a good lunch with Carla and Jim.
Processed and shipped an order for the Ra MP3's on USB.
Worked on getting some kinks ironed out of the new store.
Corresponded with Steve about some Bring4th design issues.
Continued diplomatic relations with the island nation of Sweden, adrift somewhere in the South Pacific seas, possibly near Tahiti.
Discovered sitting all by itself a green-colored 8.5 x 11 bound Dutch translation of Book I on the office desk this morning. Jim's memory was jogged by the recent conversation with Frank in the Netherlands. Turns out the Dutch translators visited Louisville in the late 80's a couple times and subsequently sent Jim and Carla a copy of Book I. All these years it's been on the book shelf in house! Notified Frank and learned from him that he will track the publishers down to see if they ever went beyond Book I.
Continued the digitization of the channeling archive, repairing a cassette tape along the way.
Responded to a slew of seeker email - from asking our opinion on a supposed interview with a Roswell alien, to a budding writer who was shocked to find similarities between the Law of One and his own writing, to seekers asking general Law of One questions including an Egyptian and a Russian - all emails unique and interesting, and an honor to respond to.
Received a couple of Homecoming 2014 transcripts back from a volunteer. Thank you Walid!
Continued working with Manuel on organizing the work of translating L/L material into Spanish and coordinating and international effort (italics to, you know, sensationalize that a bit... it is kinda like happening across three continents, jus sayin). Manuel is putting together a glossary of sorts to record translation questions and the responses from Carla for the Argentinian translators, and really for any who may come down the road.
Continued a project to introduce the Law of One to a living positive adept who may just enjoy it by sampling some of the "best" of Ra. (No such thing in reality.) One of a few times in my life I've risked a proactive sharing. In all interactions the Law of One energetically radiates from my heart, of course, but its contents sit behind a layer of concealment - not intended to deceive, just awaiting the person actually interested in asking before revealing.
For our evening I read again to Carla from Your Soul's Gift and we both were inspired by the following quote, "We who are One can never be separate from one another, but we can create the illusion of separation in the physical realm. In our nonphysical Home, where no such illusion exists, we know that we are cells in the heart of one Divine Being, united by Love in one cosmic pulse. On Earth, seemingly confined by the apparent limitations of a human body, we perceive ourselves as distinct from one another. Only the most powerful of beings can create such illusion. Only the most courageous challenge themselves to live in it."
We did our protocol first to some Classical Music and then to Classic Rock & Roll. We took Lou Reed's "Walk on the Wild Side" and went a little wild ourselves kind of like this underlining is making an emphatic statement all its own that cannot be denied. (And also seemingly cannot be undone!) I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering and then got her ready for her day. Mona came by this morning and put silver nitrate on Carla's wound and that made it come alive with pain for the rest of the day. We are trying some reading glasses with high magnification to help Carla see better, and there seems to be some benefit for her seeing with them. Her appetite is good and her plumbing is good.
I spent the afternoon getting the ten large house plants that hang in the windows in our living room cleaned up from their dead leaves and stems. I water and spray them three times per week, but the humidity in the house is so low that the plants dry out fairly quickly. They will enjoy the outdoors this spring and summer, after this cold weather ends.
Gary and Austin were busy in the L/L office today doing lots of good work:
Daily social media sharing.
Processed and shipped a book order.
Retrieved mail stuffs from the PO Box
Continued the digitization of the channeling archive.
Continued reading about the ins and outs of copyediting
Corresponded with a seeker who has written a novel based on the Law of One.
Relistened to the chapter in the L/L biography moving from the archive website to the 2003 community.
Shipped and processed a couple of book orders, and ordered some books that will come in handy for in-house editing, including the "Chicago Manual of Style", 16th edition - the standard holder.
Wrapped up a lengthy list of "to-do's" for the new online store, and continued working on some tedious processes for getting it set up. Should be ready to launch soon!
Undertook multiple rounds of mod work over the weekend and into today, including working as a team to try to smooth over a bumpy thread which delved into interpersonal waters, and also, unrelated to the other moderator work, said goodbye to a staple forum member who has decided he needs to manifest his energies elsewhere.
Received our first Dutch translation of Book I! This apparently was produced in 1988 by a Dutch publishing firm. The PDF that arrived is a scanned image of the physical pages, so converting it into a shareable digital form will be challenging. According to the sender, Frank, the grammar needs improved. He has kindly offered to render those improvements over the next few weeks. Thank you, Frank!
And on the translation front, the Spanish translations have resumed, we hope. Manuel sent the first Spanish translation we've received in months, this one from Veronica and Gaby in Argentina. Manuel put in some hours improving upon the translation and communicating with the Argentinians on translation and format questions. We updated our own system for tracking the workflow of Spanish translations.
Worked with Carla to respond to the Spanish translators' questions on the January 8, 2011 transcript.
Now that Steve's plate is virtually cleared of work for the two websites so that he can focus on the website unification project at his own pace (a Himalayan-mountain-sized project, still), took the opportunity to hit him up to see if he could make a couple of needed tweaks to the forums, but meanwhile...
Superman Austin found where in the coding in the admin panel one of those tweaks could be made, thereby successfully resolving one of the two issues, and then he combed through the admin panel, searched Google, and perused some forums looking for a solution to the other issue that resulted from the forum upgrade a few months ago. So far only a probable caused tracked down on that one.
Our evening was full of interesting conversation bits and pieces. We talked about our funeral plans, the Oscars, Carla's brothers, my mom, Larry, and how good we looked in our wedding pictures. We concluded that life is the most interesting game on the planet. I also read to Carla from Your Soul's Gift where one subject was exploring pre-incarnative reasons for him having a brain injury, "If you feel angry or frustrated because your brain doesn't work the way you would like, remember there is a purpose behind this. The limitations free the way, so to speak, to concentrate on other qualities, the ones of the heart."
We did our protocol to a special Axstv program featuring Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac with some other guest musicians, including Stevie Nicks. I had never really given Lindsey Buckingham proper credit for being a great guitarist, but we both enjoyed his playing. I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight.

Carla and I did our Morning Offering, protocol, and dressing change very early this morning as we had an appointment for Carla to receive an infusion of two units of blood at our local Baptist East Hospital. The roads were not as icy as had been predicted and there was very little traffic on a Sunday morning, so we made good time in getting to the hospital. We even got to park in the special lot meant just for this Park Tower wing of Baptist East.
It took about seven hours for the entire process to be completed, and our stay was as good as one could hope for. The nurse in charge of Carla's infusion even helped us with a crossword puzzle clue: "Doobie Brothers 1976 hit" which turned out to be ‘Taking it to the Streets". Even with that great answer we still couldn't finish the Sunday crossword puzzle.
So I read to Carla from Your Soul's Gift where the healing process that comes from knowing why we suffer was captured in this quote, "Again and again you have to remind yourself that your light, your divine core, is unscathed and whole throughout the experience. So you see, whenever you restore (in your own perceptions) the beauty of this inner core, then you will radiate this divinity to other people. You will spread energy so beautiful and pure that you will make a difference in the world you could not have made if you did not get through this deep process of being wounded and then healing yourself. There is spiritual meaning in the process of taking this injury upon you and releasing it."
When we got back home we quickly resumed our routine and took a nap! After dinner we watched the Academy Awards and were reminded by various actors and presenters how movies can help us identify with people's unusual experiences of normal human life. I remember when I was in grade school I went to our little movie theatre every week and became completely lost in the story line and the characters. I forgot who I was until the movie was over and I went outside and realized that it was just a movie and I had a whole different life.
