Editors Corner

Peace on Earth . . .The season of Christ-in-mass engenders nobility in all of us. ‘Tis the season of generosity, celebrations and a longing to share our love with family and friends. Let there be peace on earth—and let it begin with me.

As you fight the crowded mall for those last minute gifts let us all try to remember that peace on earth is personal. The Iraq war officially came to an end this week. The fanfare was missing in action. We remember both those that served and those that suffered in this long nine year war.

Sometimes in spite of our best conscious intentions of being unconditionally loving towards our family, the holidays can be a challenge. Our unfinished business has a way of inviting itself to family gatherings. Our featured video article this week might provide some helpful hints on how to connect in a deeper, more meaningful way with loved ones this holiday season. I love this woman. She has an amazing way about her. She is authentic and funny. 'The Power of Vulnerability'. Perhaps she will inspire you with the courage to be yourself, fabulously imperfect, and wonderful.

'Dream of Peace' is an original music video by LeRoy Bell, a Seattle musician. He was a contestant on the X Factor TV show. His lyrics are compelling, his voice is inspiring. Click here

Being an Honorable and Impeccable Person
Author: Ramtha

What is honor? Everyone cherishes that word. Everyone wants to somehow be honorable. It seems to be a noble and befitting way to be. I will tell you what honor is. Honor is when you don’t play games and simply are your ulterior motive. That is being impeccable. That is not necessarily beautiful but it is impeccable. Being honorable is being up-front. There is no mishmash, no gray area. There is no maybe. There is no hot and cold or one day you are on and the next day you are off. There is no instability. When you are what you are at this time in your time that is being honorable and indeed impeccable. To waver off of that is to be unimpeccable.

Can we find truth then in the axiom that there is honor among thieves? Yes, there is. Can your enemy then, your most awesome enemy, be closer to you than your lover? Absolutely. That is what I call an impeccable person. That impeccable person, I will jolly well enjoy their presence. I am very picky about who gets into my presence, because when people have ulterior motives you always have to deal with their soap opera. Like a soap bubble, they are changing colors and are filmy and never want to really know. You always have to entertain them or not talk to them at all because they are not impeccable people. They are not who they are. They are pretenders. They are an imitation and are not genuine.

There are a lot of disingenuous people sitting in this audience hearing this message. You are disingenuous because you don’t live in your life what you have learned here. You are disingenuous because you take what you have learned here and use it as a pretense while all along covering a rotten nature and your ulterior motive. That is why you are not consistent in this school. Soapy, soap-opera people are never genuine. Genuine beings I enjoy and engage because we have a true interaction with them. They have nothing to hide, and when we engage, they engage from a truthful place. When they learn, they learn truthfully, not soapy learning but real learning.

Out-of-body experience:
Master of illusion

Henrik Ehrsson uses mannequins, rubber arms and virtual reality to create body illusions, all in the name of neuroscience.

It is not every day that you are separated from your body and then stabbed in the chest with a kitchen knife.

But such experiences are routine in the lab of Henrik Ehrsson, a neuroscientist at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, who uses illusions to probe, stretch and displace people's sense of self. Today, using little more than a video camera, goggles and two sticks, he has convinced me that I am floating a few metres behind my own body. As I see a knife plunging towards my virtual chest, I flinch. Two electrodes on my fingers record the sweat that automatically erupts on my skin, and a nearby laptop plots my spiking fear on a graph.

Orb of the Week
A Christmas Inspiration
Submitted by Eileen Messer

Christmas Tree with LightsAfter our wonderful Christmas teaching by Ram on December 10th and two days of contemplation, I asked in consciousness to see how I could best express this understanding during this Christmas season. This is what came to me.

"Find a gathering of old men, perhaps in the shadow of a large building, sheltered against the cold wind, finding a few sparse chairs to sit upon, to join and be together.

Bring them each a beautiful card, an empty book, and a pen, and tell them this:

'Do not give up. You have not been forgotten. You are loved and treasured. Tell us your story, your journey. Not just what has happened to you, but what and who you cared about, what you found magnificent about life, what were your greatest moments that you remember. If you cannot write, find someone to help you – they will become great friends as they discover and share your memories. Write this book of your life. Someone will find it some day and know that you had a magnificent journey and will be inspired to see the treasures in their own life.'

Enclose a gift card or a gift of money, as they may have someone they want to give a gift to, or perhaps they have not eaten today.

If you are drawn to do it, give them a place to send their completed story to, that you may also be inspired by their journey."

Handy Tip of the Week
How to Store Fresh Eggs
By Suzanne Wood of Winter Gardening Guide

Winter Gardening Guide - EggsWe did some research on the storage of fresh eggs. There are several suggested methods and each proponent seems to think that their method is the one to use. Fortunately we stumbled upon a study done by the Mother Earth News. They systematically studied and tried several of the more popular methods for 6 months.

You can read the full article online at Mother Earth News/ How to store fresh eggs.

Here are some of the general methods and findings:

Keep in mind that eggs should never be washed before storage. They have a natural coating on the shell ( called bloom) that protects the egg from the air and bacteria in the air. Over all the fertilized eggs stored better than unfertilized.

JZK - Supreme CourtWashington Supreme Court gives JZ Knight a victory in her challenge of Yelm development

The case involved proposed subdivisions in Yelm next door to JZ Knight’s 80-acres estate. Knight, who holds what are known in state law as senior water rights, argued the city of Yelm could invade her rights in order to supply water to the new houses.
The court, in a 7-2 vote, agreed with her and against the city.
The case is big in property rights and water rights circles. But the interest grows beyond those areas because of the plaintiff. In his story on the case in May, The News Tribune’s Sean Robinson described her like this: “Knight is a wealthy New Age guru, spiritual adviser to stars, channeler (she claims) of a 35,000-year-old entity, world-famous founder of the Ramtha School of Enlightenment. She wields mystic power, some followers say.”

The decision ends, for now, a four-year legal battle over a proposal to build 568 houses – a 20 percent growth in Yelm’s housing stock.

The God Spot

More than half of adult Americans report they have had a spiritual experience that changed their lives. Now, scientists from universities like Harvard, Pennsylvania and Johns Hopkins are using new technologies to analyze the brains of people who claim they have touched the spiritual — from Christians who speak in tongues to Buddhist monks to people who claim to have had near-death experiences. Hear what they have discovered in this controversial field, as the science of spirituality continues to evolve.

The Ghost in Your Genes
Full Documentary

Can the air your parents and grandparents breathed, 
the food they ate, even the things they saw directly affect you decades later, despite your never having 
experienced these things yourself?

Epigenetics says, yes!

This documentary, 'The Ghost in Your Genes,' says biology stands on the brink of a shift in the understanding of inheritance.

Phoenix Rising School

“I am 1,000 percent behind this school.” - Ramtha

WELCOME!

Welcome to the first edition of our Fiery Phoenix, a newsletter created by talented young writers, who chose to participate in a newspaper workshop.

The following articles were chosen topics of interest of each student. They were asked to do their own research, conduct interviews, and take pictures. Then it was all pieced together into our first edition.

For now each page is unique to each student. In future editions we will be working on teamwork and a cohesive display of written text and design.

Congratulations, authors extraordinaire!
