Meditation - Now, and Again - 10/31/04 

The Bestiary
1/4
______________


The Lion's Nature


The lion standeth on a hill; if he hear a man hunting,
Or through his sense of smell scent that he draweth nigh,
By whatever way that he will, to the dale he descendeth;
All of his footsteps he after him filleth,
He draweth dust with his tail, where he walketh down,
Either dust or dew, that man may not find him;
He hasteneth down to his den where he may shelter him.
Another trait he hath: when he is just born,
The lion lieth still, he stirreth not from his sleep,
Until the sun hath shone three times about him;
Then his father arouseth him with the roar that he maketh.
The third law hath the lion: when he lieth down to sleep,
He must never lock the lids of his eyes.

Signification

Most high is that hill, which is heaven's kingdom.
Our Lord is that Lion, who liveth there above;
When it did please Him to alight here on earth,
The devil might never find out, though he hunted with cunning,
How He came down, nor how He took His dwelling,
In that gentle maiden, Mary by name,
Who bore Him for man's salvation.
When our Lord was dead, and buried, as His will was,
In a stone He lay still, till it came the third day;
His Father so strengthened Him that He rose from the dead then,
To bring us to life.
He watcheth, as His will is, like a shepherd over his fold;
He is the Shepherd, we are the sheep; shield us He will,
If we harken to His word, that we go nowhere astray.


- Medieval English Verse and Prose, Early Thirteenth Century, Roger Sherman Loomis and Rudolph Willard; Appleton-Century-Crofts, Inc, 1948




What sort of future would you have for you and yours?






The fire shall ever be burning upon the altar;
it shall never go out. - Leviticus 6.13

"But you're gonna have to serve somebody, yes indeed
You're gonna have to serve somebody,
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you're gonna have to serve somebody." - Bob Dylan

The Return 

They turned him loose; he bowed his head,
A felon, bent and grey.
His face was even as the Dead,
He had no word to say.


He sought the home of his old love,
To look on her once more;
And where her roses breathed above,
He cowered beside the door.


She sat there in the shining room;
Her hair was silver grey.
He stared and stared from out of the gloom;
He turned to go away.


Her roses rustled overhead.
She saw, with sudden start.
"I knew that you would come," she said,
And held him to her heart.


Her face was rapt and angel-sweet;
She touched his hair of grey;

. . . .

But he, sob-shaken, at her feet,
Could only pray and pray.



- Robert Service

John F Kerry Skates - While the Rest Pay 

JFK Skates While the Rest Are Left to Do Their Duty, Alone

'Unlike McCain, Bush, and Gore... Kerry has adamantly refused to authorize the release of his military records. Most think it's because of his phony battle medals. I think the real reason is below.

'Kerry was not granted an Honorable Discharge until March 2001, almost 30 years after his ostensible service term had ended! This is very much out of the ordinary, and highly suspect. There are five classes of Discharge: Honorable, General, Other Than Honorable, Bad Conduct, and Dishonorable.

'My guess is that Kerry was Discharged in the '70s, but not Honorably. He appealed this sometime while Clinton was doing trouser-tricks in the Oval Office. Political pressure was applied, and the Honorable Discharge was then granted. His file is probably rife with reports of this, submissions and hearings on the appeal, reports of his "giving aid and comfort" to the enemy, along with protests that were filed with respect to his alleged valor under fire. Hopefully, this will blow up in his face.' ============================================================================



'On 18 Feb. 1966 John Kerry signed a 6 year enlistment contract with the Navy (plus a 6-month extension during wartime).



'On 18 Feb. 1966 John Kerry also signed an Officer Candidate contract for 6 years -- 5 years of ACTIVE duty & ACTIVE Naval Reserves, and 1 year of inactive standby reserves (See items #4 & #5).



'Because John Kerry was discharged from TOTAL ACTIVE DUTY of only 3 years and 18 days on 3 Jan. 1970, he was then required to attend 48 drills per year, and not more than 17 days active duty for training. Kerry was also subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Additionally, Kerry, as a commissioned officer, was prohibited from making adverse statements against his chain of command or statements against his country, especially during time of war. It is also interesting to note that Kerry did not obtain an honorable discharge until Mar. 12, 2001 even though his service obligation should have ended July 1, 1972.



'Lt. John Kerry's letter of 21 Nov. 1969 asking for an early release from active US Navy duty falsely states "My current regular period of obligated service would be completed in December of this year."



'On Jan. 3, 1970 Lt. John Kerry was transferred to the Naval Reserve Manpower Center in Bainridge, Maryland.



'Where are Kerry's Performance Records for 2 years of obligated Ready Reserve, the 48 drills per year required and his 17 days of active duty per year training while Kerry was in the Ready Reserves? Have these records been released?



'Has anyone ever talked to Kerry's Commanding Officer at the Naval Reserve Center where Kerry drilled?



'On 1 July 1972 Lt. J ohn Kerry was transferred to Standby Reserve - Inactive. On 16 February 1978, Lt. John Kerry was discharged from US Naval Reserve.



'Below are some of the crimes Lt. Kerry USNR committed as a Ready Reservist, while he was acting as a leader of Vietnam Veterans Against the War:



'1. Lt. Kerry attended many rallies where the Vietcong flag was displayed while our flag was desecrated, defiled, and mocked, thereby giving aid and comfort to the enemy.



'2. Lt. Kerry was involved in a meeting that voted on assassinating members of the US Senate.



'3. Lt. Kerry lied under oath against fellow soldiers before the US Senate about crimes committed in Vietnam.



'4. Lt. Kerry professed to being a war criminal on national television, and condemned the military and the USA.



'5. Lt. Kerry met with NVA and Vietcong communist leaders in Paris, in direct violation of the UCMJ and the U.S. Constitution.



'Lt. Kerry by his own words & actions violated the UCMJ and the U.S. Code while serving as a Navy officer. Lt. Kerry stands in violation of Article 3, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution. Lt. Kerry's 1970 meeting with NVA Communists in Paris is in direct violation of the UCMJ's Article 104 part 904, and U.S. Code 18 U.S.C. 953. That meeting, and Kerry's subsequent support of the communists while leading mass protests against our military in the year that followed, also place him in direct violation of our Constitution's Article 3, Section 3, which defines treason as "giving aid and comfort" to the enemy in time of warfare.



'The Constitution's Fourteenth Amendment, Section 3, states, "No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President ... having previously taken an oath to support the Constitution of the United States, [who has] engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof."

Keep Thy Heart With All Diligence - for out of it are the issues of life... 

Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men.
Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away.
For they sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to fall.
For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence.
But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.
The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble. - Proverbs 4. 14-19

New Soldier, indeed ... 

See http://kerry-04.com
See http://www.wintersoldier.com




Photograph of John Kerry meeting with Comrade Do Muoi, General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam. Photo is displayed in the War Remnants Museum (formerly the "War Crimes Museum") in Saigon.

"Photograph of John Kerry meeting with Comrade Do Muoi, General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam, in Vietnam. Photo displayed in the War Remnants Museum (formerly the "War Crimes Museum") in Saigon. The June 2, 2004, edition of "Viet Nam News" is held beside the Kerry photograph to confirm the date the photo was taken. English-language placard below photograph reads: "Mr. Do Muoi, Secretary General of the Vietnam Communist Party met with Congressmen and Veterans Delegation in Vietnam (July 15-18, 1993)."


"The existence of photographs showing Senator Kerry meeting with General Secretary Do Muoi is not in question. In the course of pursuing the POW and MIA issue, it is reasonable that Senator Kerry would seek to meet with the communist leaders of Vietnam.


"The critical issue is that the Vietnamese communists have chosen to honor Senator Kerry in their War Crimes Museum for his assistance in helping them achieve victory over the United States. The sign outside the entrance to the room where Kerry's photo is displayed reads: "The World Supports Vietnam in its Resistance." Also exhibited inside the room are protest banners and emblems from various nations and photographs of international leaders who supported North Vietnam's cause.

Stolen Honor - Raison D'etre - Update and Programme Schedule Access 

Happy to relate, Sinclair Broadcasting and its sixty-two affiliates will be airing "Stolen Honor" during 21 - 24 October.

Specifically, in the Sacramento, California market, at 1900 PDT Saturday, 23 October, on KOVR, Channel 13, will Stolen Honor be aired.

The issue is simply this:

"A thousand enemies cannot inflict the injury upon our arms which can be done by one concealed enemy in our midst..." - MG John Pope, 23 July 1862


A good witness is General Vo Nguyen Giap - the most celebrated military hero of Communist North Vietnam, which Senator, then Lieutenant John Kerry, served - in fact, John Kerry was recognized for such "aid and comfort" in 1983, when he received an award for his special contributions to the Communist victory in Vietnam from the incoming general secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam, Comrade Do Moi. See a photo of John Kerry, in recognition of his contributions to the 'great victory in VIETNAM' by the North Vietnamese Communists, in a place of honor in the War Remnants Museum. Photo courtesy wintersoldier.com

Photograph of John Kerry meeting with Comrade Do Muoi, General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam, in Vietnam, July 15-18, 1993. This photo is part of a tribute to John Kerry in the War Remnants Museum (formerly the "War Crimes Museum") in Saigon.

John Kerry authored a book called The New Soldier - but since military heroes are back in vogue, he now sues anyone who reproduces the cover of this book on any website, especially a website like http://kerry 04.com.

The cover picture is a mockery of the American flag raising on Iwo Jima in WW II - you can see it here, until John Kerry's lawyers forces ~ elderflower ~ to take it down.

"Saint Patrick's Breastplate" - "The Deer's Cry" 

I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through belief in the threeness,
Through confession of the oneness
Of the Creator of Creation.

I arise today
Through the strength of Christ's birth with his baptism,
Through the strength of his crucifixion with his burial,
Through the strength of his resurrection with his ascension,
Through the strength of his descent for the judgment of Doom.

I arise today
Through the strength of the love of Cherubim,
In obedience of angels,
In the service of archangels,
In hope of resurrection to meet with reward,
In prayers of patriarchs,
In predictions of prophets,
In preaching of apostles,
In faith of confessors,
In innocence of holy virgins,
In deeds of righteous men.

I arise today
Through the strength of heaven:
Light of sun,
Radiance of moon,
Splendor of fire,
Speed of lightning,
Swiftness of wind,
Depth of sea,
Stability of earth,
Firmness of rock.

I arise today
Through God's strength to pilot me:
God's might to uphold me,
God's wisdom to guide me,
God's eye to look before me,
God's ear to hear me,
God's word to speak for me,
God's hand to guard me,
God's way to lie before me,
God's shield to protect me,
God's host to save me
From snares of devils,
From temptations of vices,
From everyone who shall wish me ill,
Afar and anear,
Alone and in multitude.

I summon today all these powers between me and those evils,
Against every cruel merciless power that may oppose my body and soul,
Against incantations of false prophets,
Against black laws of pagandom,
Against false laws of heretics,
Against craft of idolatry,
Against spells of witches and smiths and wizards,
Against every knowledge that corrupts man's body and soul.

Christ to shield me today
Against poison, against burning,
Against drowning, against wounding,
So that there may come to me abundance of reward.
Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me,
Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ on my right, Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down, Christ when I arise,
Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.

I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through belief in the threeness,
Through confession of the oneness,
Of the Creator of Creation.

First, Sputnik Frightens, Then Thrills - Now, SpaceShip One Just Thrills! 

Forty-seven years ago today the world changed forever when Sputnik took to the skies overhead - from the U.S.S.R.! Today, Sputnik is celebrated for the scientific achievement it surely was and remains with the successful winning of the X-Prize by Burt Rutan's SpaceShip One going in to space a second time, well within the fortnight's deadline set changes the world, again - while Gordon Cooper, one of the original "Right Stuff" astronauts and one of the original Mercury 'class', passed away.


The future, in earthen terms, is bright for us to reach the 'stars' - our local space within our grasp, LORD willing, anyway. Thanks to private enterprise.

What sort of future would you have for you and yours?
