10:10 Testament: My friend Angela Foster asked me if I choose 10:10 because it represents the straight line & the curve the basis of everything…? I laughed & said ‘no I hadn’t thought of it, but I didn’t need to since you have’. That’s the beauty of co-creation, we all add to the narrative; we all reveal what the collective spirit is bringing, each hearing what speaks to us; & then we must share with each other, so the Thought-Form grows between us.

Angela explained that she must have received that message because she is homeschooling her 6th grader, & so she knows that in Waldorf education the pedagogy is based on this straight & curved line expression which is seen in everything in nature.

TfT- (Thought for Today):

As we shine out from the Earth, Divine Spiritual Beings take notice, we are seen. We become lightning rods for their protection & power. We become super charged catalysts for change. The light that is eternal is the future flowing into the now.

Fred Janney, co-creator of the Prison Outreach Program of the ASA, a fiery John the Baptist figure, made his uprising across the Threshold a few days ago. I felt his energy with us in the light.

Diane Lynch

Then the thought came: What is our relationship to the unborn – human beings waiting at the Rainbow Bridge for their time to Cross that same Threshold to be born again on Earth.

Can we lay a foundation of truth & justice & beauty into the world, to create a health bearing, life affirming cradle for the new souls that must come in as Spiritual Warriors for Christ?

What might we create, that would enhance the destinies of our descendants?

How can we conduct ourselves so that we will not only help preserve the wonders we live amidst, but actually enhance them?

What can we do to be more conscious about making our life a gift to the future?

Andrew Gonzalez

As we ponder our possible contributions–& take practical action to deepen our commitment to them–keep in mind this thought from Lewis Carroll: “It’s a poor sort of memory that only works backward.”

What are your thoughts on our growing egregore…?

1927 – Leon Trotsky is expelled from the Soviet Communist Party, leaving Joseph Stalin in undisputed control of the Soviet Union.

1956 – In the midst of the Suez Crisis, or the Second Arab–Israeli War, Palestinian refugees are shot dead in Rafah by Israeli soldiers following the invasion of the Gaza Strip. The canal continued to be strategically important after the Second World War as a conduit for the shipment of oil. As a result of the conflict, the United Nations created the UNEF Peacekeepers to police the Egyptian–Israeli border, British Prime Minister Anthony Eden resigned, Canadian Minister of External Affairs Lester Pearson won the Nobel Peace Prize, & the USSR may have been emboldened to invade Hungary.

10 Iran Hostage Crisis ideas | crisis, iran, jimmy carter

1979 – Iran hostage crisis: One of the leading national issues during that year was the release of 52 Americans being held hostage in Iran since November 4, 1979.  In response to the hostage situation in Tehran, US President Jimmy Carter orders a halt to all petroleum imports into the United States from Iran. The Iran hostage crisis continued into 1980, & as the November 1980 presidential election approached, there were concerns in the Republican Party camp that a resolution of the crisis would give incumbent Jimmy Carter enough of an electoral boost to be re-elected.

Reagan won the election, because the hostages were not released before the election, but on the day of Reagan’s inauguration—in fact, 20 minutes after he concluded his inaugural address—the Islamic Republic of Iran announced the release of the hostages. The timing gave rise to an allegation that representatives of Reagan’s presidential campaign had conspired with Iran to delay the release until after the election to thwart President Carter from pulling off an “October surprise”.

According to the allegation, the Reagan Administration rewarded Iran for its participation in the plot by supplying Iran with weapons via Israel & by unblocking Iranian government monetary assets in US banks.

The House October Surprise Task Force outlined as “principal allegations” three supposed meetings between representatives of Reagan’s campaign & Iranian government officials in the summer & fall of 1980 to delay the release of the hostages: 1) a meeting in Madrid during the summer, 2) a meeting at the L’Enfant Plaza Hotel in Washington, D.C that autumn, & 3) a meeting in Paris in October.

The Task Force characterized three other meetings or contacts as “ancillary allegations”: 1) a meeting at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C. in early spring 1980, 2) a meeting at the Churchill Hotel in London in the summer of 1980, and 3) a meeting at the Sherry Netherlands Hotel in New York in January 1981.

  • March 1980: Jamshid Hashimi, international arms dealer, is visited by William Casey at Washington’s Mayflower Hotel, who asks that a meeting be arranged with “someone in Iran who had authority to deal on the hostages”.
  • March 21, 1980: Jamshid Hashimi & his brother Cyrus Hashimi meet at the latter’s home.
  • April 1980: Donald Gregg, a U.S. National Security Council aide with connections to George Bush, meets Cyrus Hashimi in New York’s Shazam restaurant, near Hashimi’s bank.  Former Iranian President Abolhassan Banisadr said in his 1991 book My Turn to Speak that he had “proof of contacts between Khomeini & the supporters of Ronald Reagan as early as the spring of 1980…. Rafsanjani, Beheshti, & Ahmed Khomeini [the Ayatollah’s son] played key roles.”
  • Last week of July 1980: At a meeting in Madrid arranged by the Hashimi brothers that includes Robert Gray, a man identified as Donald Gregg, & Mahdi Karrubi, William Casey says that if Iran could assure that American hostages were well treated until their release & were released as a “gift” to the new administration, “the Republicans would be most grateful & ‘would give Iran its strength back.'” Karrubi says he has “no authority to make such a commitment.”
  • About August 12, 1980: Karrubi meets again with Casey, saying Khomeini has agreed to the proposal. Casey agrees the next day, naming Cyrus Hashimi as middleman to handle the arms transactions. More meetings are set for October. Cyrus Hashimi purchases a Greek ship & commences arms deliveries valued at $150 million from the Israeli port of Eilat to Bandar Abbas. According to CIA sources, Hashimi receives a $7 million commission. Casey is said to use an aide named Tom Carter in the negotiations.
  • September 22, 1980: Iraq invades Iran.
  • Late September 1980: An expatriate Iranian arms dealer named Hushang Lavi claims he met with Richard V. Allen, the Reagan campaign’s national security expert, Robert “Bud” McFarlane, & Lawrence Silberman, & discussed the possible exchange of F-4 parts for American hostages, but Lavi says they asserted they “were already in touch with the Iranians themselves”.
  • October 15–20: Meetings are held in Paris between emissaries of the Reagan/Bush campaign, with Mr. William Casey as “key participant”, & “high-level Iranian & Israeli representatives”.
  • October 21: Iran, for reasons not explained, abruptly shifts its position in secret negotiations with the Carter administration & disclaims “further interest in receiving military equipment”.
  • October 21–23: Israel secretly ships F-4 fighter-aircraft tires to Iran, in violation of the U.S. arms embargo, & Iran disperses the hostages to different locations.
  • January 20, 1981: Hostages are formally released into United States custody after spending 444 days in captivity. The release takes place just minutes after Ronald Reagan is sworn in as president.

Several individuals—most notably former Iranian President Abulhassan Banisadr, former naval intelligence officer and U.S. National Security Council member Gary Sick, & former Reagan/Bush campaign staffer & White House analyst Barbara Honegger—have continued to speak out about this truth, to no avail.

1996 – A Saudi Arabian Airlines Boeing 747 & a Kazakh Ilyushin Il-76 cargo plane collide in mid-air near New Delhi, killing 349. The deadliest mid-air collision to date.

1997 – Ramzi Yousef is found guilty of masterminding the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

1999 –Düzce earthquake shakes northwestern Turkey. At least 1845 people were killed & almost 5,000 were injured.

2001 – In New York City, American Airlines Flight 587, an Airbus A300 en route to the Dominican Republic, crashes minutes after takeoff from John F. Kennedy International Airport, killing all 260 on board & five on the ground.

2017 – The Kermanshah earthquake shakes the northern Iran–Iraq border. At least 2410 people were killed & over 7,000 were injured.

Manifestations of Karma Study Group
December 2, 2020 – 7:15 pm Central (8:15 pm Eastern)

… We have now learned that it is possible to seek out accidents or other causes of illness due to karmic effects. In due course we will deal with the details of such processes, such as the way in which the forces in deeper levels of consciousness work within the human being, or to what extent our ordinary consciousness may avoid such accidents. We can understand that someone who goes to a place  where he may succumb to an infection will have been driven there under the influence of a certain level of consciousness; in like manner we must be able to understand how it is that human beings take certain measures to render such infections less and less effective; in other words, that through our ordinary consciousness we are able to avert certain consequences by means of hygiene.

~Rudolf Steiner, Manifestations of KarmaChapter 6Karma in Relation to Accidents”, Hamburg, 21 May, 1910 … focus of the December 2 meeting.

The lecture can be found online at the RS Archive (eLib) by clicking this link: https://wn.rsarchive.org/Lectures/GA120/English/RSP1984/19100521p01.html

4 thoughts on “Can I get a Witness…

  1. I really like this idea of “straight line and curved” coming from Angela Foster. It is a really good thought-experiment in line with what we are trying to do. As such, a straight line can be looked at as the first dimensional direction of the waking child, as it draws the pencil forward. The curve is yet too big, and only an adult can perceive how this sphere is to be beheld. The child learns to draw the pencil point which becomes the line, and which then makes the plane and the angle. Thus, three dimensions without any notion of a curve. Only the astute adult human can equate the straight line to the curve. The curve becomes a very unique variation when we consider the parameters of : Point, Line, Plane, Angle. The Curve is a very unique assessment. It represents something more, and why it appears here in this consideration.

    This is a Thought-Experiment contributed to between Hazel and Angela. This kind of work will really achieve something important, and it is because it is being advocated and allowed between the idea of line and curve. What makes the curve is a supersensible dimension which had no prior edict than that it come next in the equation. It is because of the curve that we repeat lives over and over again. The Point would have proven the original cause of earth evolution; divinity from beginning to end.

    Yet, the circle denotes something else, like an extension with a circumference, which yields the very idea of progression and extension via multiple lives lived in a synchronous pattern. This is very important to behold. The earth is at a very critical state of being. And Gnosis needs to take the lead from now on. Yet, we are at a loss because no one will listen to the plea until it gets so worse that we all have to listen to what the future holds. And that might take some time because the intellectual soul is proving itself to be really inferior to the Consciousness Soul that is trying to “knock on wood” today.

    1. Nicely rendered dear Steve.
      May we take these lines & curves & get to the point: Love & Light, Unity in the Community of humankind.
