Mapping the bird flu outbreak
Amid fears that an outbreak of avian flu which has killed millions of birds in South East Asia could mutate and spread among humans, BBC News Online looks at the situation in the countries affected so far. So far, only the H5N1 strain of bird flu has been deadly to humans.
Indonesia officially confirmed the presence of avian flu in the country on 25 January, and tests confirmed on 3 February that it was the H5N1 strain.
President Megawati ordered a cull of infected birds on 29 January after initially resisting pressure from the World Health Organization.
Independent and government researchers are believed to have first detected the existence of avian flu in Indonesia in November, but the government said it was a less serious disease, Newcastle disease.
This morning the sun shone brightly, a far cry from that 38 degree and rain xmas, the worst weather xmas that I have ever seen, for my whole life, I pondered, as I walked to the coffee shop, the significance of the tidal wave!
8 am yahoo news says "now that 40,000 are dead"...."A train of 1000 people swept off of the tracks"
I recalled that dream that I had back in the fall, maybe October.
There was a time, of several nights within a week, where I went out of body, astrally, to some sort of "school" in the heavens. At first I thought that this school, was just of my high school, back in 1958 Interlaken, NY; but no....It is a
school of some sort, in heaven: I was only trying to see it in the only images that I had at hand, in my lifetime....My old high school!
I eventually could tell my the colors and the building itself, that this was a school for incoming souls to get acclimated to heaven.
I also discovered that there were at least several masters in charge of this school, and one of them was Sathya Sai Baba! [even when "alive" on earth, living in south India, he is a director of this school!]
the series of these dreams ended when about the time, as I wandered all about this school, room to room, exploring, I came across, on a table, just strewn there, perhaps, left behind, not shelved after reading, by someone...What looked to be a kind of "business calendar", a thick booklet of a calendar where also there was
a large space besides each day so to have the appointments and memos written, the important events of the year-to-come, written out, to advise or to warn the reader as to what to do, day by day.
this appointment calendar looked to be Sai baba's own personal copy!!
even in my "vague dream state", I eagerly opened it up to see what was in it! Naturally I could bring back only just a bit. I think Baba's name was on it and the calendar was for the year 2005. I only recall the entry for about the 26th or the 27th for JANUARY 2005.
"A Great huge ecological earth disaster"!!
-----so sports fans, what I was intrigued about, was how the date for the tidal wave was the same day, but one month PRIOR to January of 2005!
oh the nature of Time, I read often how psychics are tearing their hair over how Time "distorts" in the conversion between the heavens and the earth: a time given in the astral, by a Guide, is often not to be so on the earth! Then the prophecy is seen to be "wrong"...Only to have the event occur months and months later!
[a guide once said, via a medium...."If a Guide gives a death date for a client, often that date is a year away from that stated date! If, say, a event is told to will occur on 10th January 1997, what is actually meant is that this event will occur on the 10th of January of 1998!"]
time is "slippery" between the astral and the earth spheres!
there could well be the good chance that this memo is about the Tidal wave, where probably 60,000 people, or more, have died, and probably another 20,000 WILL die, from weakness and sickness. Given in the memo page to be January 26th, 2005, but actually to be December 26th, of 2004.
which brings me to another Topic, that map above! A map that should bring the "fear" to the epidemic disease scientists: they have seen the "firecracker" of the Tidal wave, but as this firecracker of a bang has gotten their attention, they do NOT see the Hydrogen Bomb, behind their backs, that could explode momentarily!!
yes, that map, above, of the east Asian countries that have reported the bird flu!
Including Indonesia, of course! They, consumed by that disaster, will not pay attention to this!
the perfect Storm:
---no food, so food is rushed from inland and from near mainland china! Live birds travel well.
---millions in poor immunity health, without shelter, in the cool time of year, eating chickens and dealing with volunteer helpers from further inland Asia.
---thousands of foreign volunteers from all over the world, staying a while and becoming tired and exhausted, then they FLY back home, to all the western countries, then get off of the plane and then
cough in your face, in the mall, or on the subway or bus!
*if* this virus does that "gene recombining" where it jumps from bird to human and then becomes as catchable as the common cold
*and* with its "currant death rate" still at the 50% to 70% level
[look to the person on your left and then on your right: both will die, at that rate!!]
and then have one half of the survivors with such a damaged lung system that they can never ever work again, just use your Imagination, for a moment, to imagine
what this "hydrogen bomb exploding" will do to the west's economy and to the social
even if this virus "mellows out", becomes less virulent, in its passage through the world's populations, even at a 20% "kill rate" and of a 20% "permanent lung damage" rate, the effects will be HUGE!!
No one there, in the coastal sections of Asia, will Pay proper Attention to
Disease spread Protocols, of this bird virus: all attention paid to Cholera and the other "standard" disease vectors, that come with such disasters!
the returning aid givers, will cough in your face, or in the face of the person who will cough in the face of the person who will cough in your face, on the bus, or in the movie theater line, sometime in Febuary of march, on a rainy cold day.
or bird flu?

Astral travel dreams!
too too bad that I cannot remember most of them, but there was one the other day, that had me wake up with a knowledge of how to describe the worlds that I seem to be in, in my dreams!
The open countrysides seem to be alive! To have a consciousness of their very own.
As if I were with another person who was charismicly awake and intensely aware, but invisible to my sight.
too...I seem able to often fly or float across the scenery.
The other night, I was in a land of old farmhouses, houses that looked a bit like they needed a paint job! I see this often in my dreams and I finally figured out that these houses looked the way that houses did, around the turn of the century, around maybe 1900, when paint was not used so much. Back then they used whitewash
or even MILK to paint their houses: the local hardware stores did not carry paint in those nice modern cans! Thus these houses are the Creation of their owners, from when they first arrived in spirit, in the 1800s, or so. According to the Law
of spirit that I have been shown, when a house is vacated, as that soul progresses onwards to a higher heaven, the house is of course empty, and the Rule is that another incoming soul will use this house until he/she is ready to also leave: this goes on and on, for years and years, after this house was first built. Since there is no decay and rot, the houses could last until some soul comes to remove them.
this is probably why there is so much of the "past" in the buildings that I see there! They are all made of "thoughtform" material, by the first Comers, or the masters, years ago, when the masters first created this astral "area" that corresponds to the country below, on earth. Thus the "American land" [my name]
is only a matter of 300 years old, or so. Thus the houses and cabins date back to that Pioneer settling period of the 1700s/1800s. As these souls progressed, their houses became available for the next soul.
I can imagine that the astral worlds for OLD cultures, on earth, might be very interesting to see: some countries have buildings that are 800 to 1500 years old!
Europe and Asia and Africa have the oldest.
RULE: the astral lands are "above" the earthly counterpart culture, that generated these astral lands. There thusly is a astral land for each culture and even each subculture within a country.
[I once went to see my deceased father about a year after he died. He was living in what HE called..."Upstate new York Victorian farmer world"!]
[I once went to see the appalalacian mountain land, a place that I have gone to often, to note that there were, in one section, a lot of modern looking "hippie/new age/yuppie homes! Yes of course, many of the new agers have died and they have brought their home designs with them!]
these astral lands are only the "second floor" above the first floor called the "earth". There are levels and levels above the astral planes. Yes "planes", as there are many sub-planes within the astral plane. Think: the FM radio band that is above the AM band....There are many many stations within the FM band. Then there are all the shortwave bands and the TV bands above the FM band...
tic the first afterlife world. I read, from a channeled guide, the he says....Through the medium...."That here in the astral the Nightwalkers are a bit of a pest as they appear and disappear at seeming randomness, and intrude into places that cause surprises. One can actually see the pajamas on some of them! They all come from the earthplane: when they awake most will only half-remember what they saw and they will, in any event, think that it was only a dream! Too, these sleepers appear on the higher levels too, but rarely. A rare few even make it up to the Record level [akasha records] and the paradise level of the celestial, but most appear only in the astral. One can tell that they are sleepers by the aura that they have, and most of them wander around like Zombies, only a little bit awake, like sleepwalkers. Then they go poof, as they go back to their bodies"!....A report from the field, from a Guide who lives there!!
always the skies are bright blue and "electric" in feel. Again...It is if the very air and lands are "alive", have a consciousness of and in itself. As if I were inside of a living being!! I have, within the last few weeks, seen people and places that infer that I have been to counterpart worlds "over" Africa...Franca...Iraq...England...Russia. These are the places that I can only remember, there are more forgotten. I have no idea as to "why" I go/taken to see these places. Usually it is to meet with some person or people.
often when I meet someone and a real conversation is about to begin, I immediately wake up! Long ago, I was a bit "irked" that "when the good stuff is about to begin, I wake up"! Always wake up, not just leave, as if my presence, knowing what the person and I talk about, is not for me to know! Finally I realized that the reason why I wake up is that my only astral purpose is to make a contact with someone and then this someone would talk to the Guide who brought me to see this person. Because this person was not high enough yet in vibration to meet my guide, yet, my presence was to "bridge" between he and my guide, as I still have the earth about me, thus closer to him who just had left the earth, and my ???Guide/angel/angels have long long been way from the earth plane, so that the gap was too too big for them to meet this person, unless there was someone in the "middle" between he and the Angels! Me!
Once, about a year ago, I was in a Eastern desert place, a city of mud-like cement
and bricks, with nothing but sand around the ground. "they", the people there wanted me to at least see the oncoming person, walking along the road. They were a bit afraid of this person, a man called Saddam. He came...He looked exactly like the newspapers photos Saddam. [he too astral travels!]
I think that I shook his hand or at least greeted him. Then of course I woke up!
face to face with a man with a frazzy beard, I have seen that photo a hundred times: now I met him in the astral! Since the connection *is* made, for the guides, this connection is "forever", thus I probably WILL have to get to know him, after both of us die!
oh the astral is so so interesting!
