How to Greet People in Los Angeles . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

Here is a video about the protocol on greeting people in Los Angeles supermarkets. There is a lightly edited Summary after the video …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

A little while ago I explained the code word, the code language, for greeting someone in a car if you are in the Colorado area … the way to vet yourself is a Coloradan …

But I thought it also might be best to provide some information for those Coloradans who want to visit Los Angeles, so that they will know how to greet people too. It is very different here. The most important thing to know about visiting Los Angeles is: Never look anyone in the eye, if you are passing them by, or if you are in the store. Whatever you do, avoid eye contact.

The results of failing to do this are pretty severe. People figure either you are homeless and on the dole … looking for a handout … or else you’re a psychopath after injuring them or doing them some harm. So be very careful, in walking the streets of Los Angeles, never to look anyone in the eye.

The exception is young children; they have not yet learned these rules. And so it is quite a joy to greet young children just about anywhere in the world. Now you know the answer. Remember, not like this …

On Using Aluminum Foil to Shield the Body and Brain during Solar Events . by Alice B. Clagett

Written on 11 January 2019; published on 3 June 2019

  • PROS AND CONS OF USING ALUMINUM FOIL TO SHIELD THE BODY AND BRAIN DURING A GEOSTORM
  • STORIES BY ALICE: ‘DARK ATTACK’ DURING SOLAR EVENT IN THE LOS ANGELES AREA
  • MORE INFORMATION

Dear Ones,

I have held off on publishing this because of all the jokes about aluminum foil and mental illness. Despite the ribald humor surrounding the topic, I have found, from personal experience as a telepath, that there are pros and cons to using aluminum foil to shield the body so as to prevent mental turmoil during Solar Events. Here is the scoop …

PROS AND CONS OF USING ALUMINUM FOIL TO SHIELD THE BODY AND BRAIN DURING A GEOSTORM

People talk about using heavy weight aluminum foil as a cap on the head or a tent over the body during severe geostorms. I realize this is pretty much a joke to most people; but, I figure, any port in a storm.

If it works for you, then I feel it will be all right in the short term to use it. But long term, I feel that aluminum foil on or near the head interferes with brain function; this is just my personal intuition about it; you may feel differently.

If a person is caught outside during a severe geostorm … say the automobile ignition or electrical system temporarily fails, and the person is stuck there on the freeway for a while … then a double layer of heavy weight aluminum foil … inside a hat on the head, so as to avoid looking completely silly … can help temporarily.

STORIES BY ALICE: ‘DARK ATTACK’ DURING SOLAR EVENT IN THE LOS ANGELES AREA

I remember an instance, quite some years ago, when I tried this out while I was driving out of Los Angeles towards the seashore during a time of noospheric turbulence … the sort of time I now term a Dark Attack. The aluminum foil over my head became so hot … from whatever energy was hitting it from above … that I had to seek shelter in an auto repair facility, and remove the hat.

While it felt like I was being attacked by negative telepathy at that time, I later came to realize that the most likely cause of that long ago experience was a Solar Event. I say this because, when I finally got to a motel near the ocean, I tried folding together two six-foot-long, double layers of heavy-weight aluminum foil and placing them over the coat rack in the motel room closet. The result was a double-layered ‘blanket’ of aluminum foil 6 feet long and about 2 feet wide. It seemed not to help, when I sat under it.

I took the foil off the coat rack and began meditating. That did help. Nevertheless, I sensed ‘a vast  disturbance in the Force’ … as I recall they termed it in a Star Wars movie …

Video: “I Felt a Great Disturbance in the Force,” by QuoteThatGuy, 28 January 2014 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EKu7TYWNxqA ..

My cat went and hid under the bed.

When I opened my eyes from the meditation, I noticed the tin foil blanket had risen about a foot above the closet floor and was waving and wandering about. I felt like getting under the bed with my cat!

As I do not have the clair ability of moving physical objects around [termed psychokinesis, telekinesis, or the poltergeist effect] … and setting aside the Dark Attack hypothesis, although the event felt sinister at the time … then what remains is the notion of electromagnetic (EMF) disturbance in the atmosphere caused by a Solar Event.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Dear Ones,

INTRODUCTION

I feel that the United States is experiencing a down-spiraling into what appear to be the sort of problems that underdeveloped nations have been facing all along. We are doing this in headlong fashion, while still understandably looking to the high standards of our dream that America is a land of opportunity for all.

Thus we are missing the mile markers and warning signs that action must be taken right away so as to solve the problems at hand. But what action is it that begs to be taken?

My hope is that there may be a middle path … a path neither ultra-right nor ultra-left … a path based upon viable solutions that have already proven to be of merit in other countries with problems similar to our own.

Here in Los Angeles we are looking for solutions to the issue of the waves of homeless people, some of whom have financial resources, and some of whom have not.

Then there are those who have sufficient money for food and clothing, but not enough to allow them to be housed; those people just need low-cost housing. And I believe that is in the works, in Los Angeles. But it may be some while before sufficient low-cost housing is available.

THE ADVANTAGE OF A STAGED APPROACH TO THE HOMELESS PROBLEM

I believe that taking a staged approach to solutions for the homeless problem has merit. It would empower us, neighborhood by neighborhood, to break the stalemate of not having enough money to implement a solution. It would give us a direction and a purpose. It would be cost effective. And the results would be immediate, for the homeless would no longer be camping out illegally on public and private property in our neighborhoods.

Stage One: Provide Small Tenting Areas, with Security

I feel we must begin with a Stage One plan now, that being to get the homeless off the streets, even if that means setting aside tenting areas for them, and providing tents, with some form of security to prevent violence amongst the homeless, or by others against them, such as fences, camp overseers. and law enforcement patrols. The homeless, I feel, surely ought to have safe turf to call their own, during a well-defined Stage One of the homing process.

Segregating Homeless at Stage One by Need. Stage One, I feel, it might be best to divide the homeless population up into segments, so that the needs of each segment may be more easily met; for instance, women who are alone, couples, families with children, the handicapped, those suffering from addictions, and single men who are able bodied and want to find work.

There are already plans underway in this regard. For instance, in the community of West Hills, the Neighborhood Council has established a Homelessness Committee that is working towards solutions to the issue of homelessness, and which offers information on available resources …

Link: “Homeless Committee, West Hills Neighborhood Council” … https://www.westhillsnc.org/homeless-committee.php ..

Stage Two Work Camps for the Homeless: A Lockable Shed, and Work at Less Than Minimum Wage in Exchange for Social Services

I suggest, as Stage Two, work camps with a bare minimum of lockable, ventilated shelter, as with a Home Depot shed.

Employment services might be offered, with a foreman, for day labor. The work camps might provide a very low wage similar to that offered in California prisons. The work might help fund their health care, housing, food, and water. And those employed there could use their salary that they get for incidentals.

Stage Three: Group Housing, and Employment in the Community

For those who do well in day labor, the work camp staff could be on the constant lookout for better paid employment for them. If steady work is found, then perhaps group housing could be made available, perhaps in groups of roommates or dormitory groups, to keep the cost of housing low until sufficient low-income housing has been built.

CONCLUSION

That is just one way of staging recovery from homelessness; I am sure many more suggestions are being put forth. The important thing, by my lights, is the notion that we can act now. Right now, we can do something,

Should we Angelenos get together in our neighborhood councils and decide to provide small, secure lots for the homeless to pitch their tents in, we could get them off the streets and out of harm’s way in no time.

This, I feel, would be a win-win situation, as homeowners and shopkeepers will no doubt be relieved of the unsettled feeling they may have been experiencing regarding illegal encampments on public and private property here in Los Angeles.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Dear Ones,

This is a call to action regarding the religious practice of mortification of the flesh, including self-flagellation, that some Christian denominations retain as a historical tradition. In noospheric tenor, these practices tie into the denser energy streams of sadomasochistic sexual practices and snuff sex that have, of late, ransacked the noosphere of Los Angeles, especially on the weekends.

Aside from the link-in with historic practices of fleshly mortification why is it that this relatively rare nuance of sexual behavior is such a standout in the Los Angeles noosphere of late? For more, I turned to this publication …

Link: “The Psychology of Sadomasochism: An Attempt to Explain Sadism and Masochism,” by Neil Burton, M.D., posted 17 August 2014, in Psychology Today … https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/hide-and-seek/201408/the-psychology-sadomasochism ..

From that I learned that many seemingly innocuous forms of behavior, such as tickling, infantilizing, and love-biting … and perhaps, I would add, taunting and bullying, as are oft found online these days … play into the darker, denser energy streams of the relatively recherché world of sadomasochism. Thus we are all, willy-nilly, for the most part unwittingly, involved in the clearing of these dense energy strands from the Los Angeles noosphere at present.

My appeal today is to those who are consciously able to choose whether they will add to these denser noospheric energies of sadomasochism. I make this appeal because, as an intuitive person, I find these energies very difficult to bear, especially on the weekends in Los Angeles, and most particularly so during times of solar storm … even geostorms as mild as that which we experienced last night …

In order to keep our personal Body of Light (aura, or energy field) pure and bright, I feel it is important to avoid injury to the body, which is the temple of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit itself, in my sense of it, is injured by mortification of the flesh.

LET THERE BE NO RETURN TO THE KNIGHTS TEMPLAR OF OLD

It is the work of a Christian to discover the Grace of God within, or so I believe. What can be farther from that goal than the undercurrents that apparently evolved, over the centuries, in organizations such as the historic Knights Templar? Having read this no-holds barred account of that evolution …

Link: “The Dark History of the Knights Templar,” from “Knights Templar’s Saga” at theunjustmedia.com … https://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/sociopolitica/templars/knights_templars01.htm

… as well as this more tempered account …

Link: “Knights Templar,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knights_TemplarMore tempered.

… I have some concerns about the renaissance of the Knights Templar tradition by newly formed groups here in Los Angeles and elsewhere in the United States.

How is it that, in ages gone by, sincere members of devout religious orders have fallen prey to emanations of self-hatred and hatred of others through organizations founded for the best of reasons?

The answer, I feel, lies in the slight affinity aroused in the body to hatred of others through the practice of self-mortification …

Link: “Flagellation: Religious Practice,” written by Geoffrey Abbott, in Encyclopaedia Britannica … https://www.britannica.com/topic/flagellation ..

Through this ‘toehold’ of hatred of the body, flows forth into the noosphere hatred in all its forms: Hatred of women, abuse of children, envy at the sexual prowess of other men; hatred of this teaching or that of one’s own church, or of those of other Christian denominations; and finally, hatred even of the Light of God within, and turning to the abomination of Satanic ritual.

WILL PLAGUE COMPEL US TO FLAGELLANT PARADES?

In the mid-13th Century, processions of self-flagellants took place in central Italy with intent to mitigate a devastating plague. In current times we face another such plague, the scourge of HIV/AIDS, which leaves those of our children who are so infected unable to produce viable offspring.

In our nation’s capital, Washington D.C., according to Centers for Disease Control statistics published in 2016, the lifetime risk of contracting HIV was 1 in 13 people …

Link: “2016 HIV Lifetime Risk Statistics from Centers for Disease Control,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 30 March 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-c3f ..

Since 2016, no state-by-state statistics have been published. Yet the epidemic, I feel, is cresting in the congested urban areas of the United States, or will soon do so.

Until statistics are caught up, we cannot definitively know where we stand with regard to the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Meanwhile, shall we once more fall to the practice of publicly mistreating our bodies … whether in our streets, or on the silver screen?

ON PERFECTING WORKS OF CORPOREAL MERCY

The answer to the social stresses now testing the tensile strength of our democratic way of life lies not in hatred, not in acts of terrorism whether ultra right or ultra left, not in pogroms, not in vigilante justice, not in wanton waste of life, but in a learned and temperately discerning approach to the problems at hand.

Let us pay utmost respect to our bodies, the abiding temples of God’s loving kindness to us. It is this, the virtue of Christian charity … to ourselves as well as to others … that holds the answer to action in the world during this, the cusp of the HIV/AIDS pandemic.

In the Book of Matthew, Christ says …

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” –Matthew 6:16 (KJV, public domain)

I am put in mind of the biography of pastor Martin Rinkart, whose example I find  inspiring in these times of worldwide hardship …

The Heroic Works of Charity of German Pastor Martin Rinkart During the Great Pestilence

Martin Rinkart (23 April 1586, Eilenburg – 8 December 1649) was a pastor who ministered to his flock in Eilenburg, a walled German town, during the Thirty Years’ War, 1618-1648.

In 1637, when the town was already worn down by war, the Great Pestilence took place. At that time the town of Eilenburg had four ministers. People from the surrounding area who were suffering from epidemic and famine sought refuge in Pastor Rinkart’s town.

As the plague-ridden entered the town, the townspeople became infected. One of the town’s ministers, no doubt overcome by a sense of impending doom, fled to healthier climes. The two other ministers stood by Pastor Rinkart, who saw them buried.

In the end, Pastor Rinkart was the only pastor left in Eilenburg. He conducted services for over 4,000 people, sometimes as many as 40 or 50 a day. In May of 1637 his wife died, which must have been a grievous personal blow to him. By the end of that year, the dead were being buried in trenches, and there were no services for them.

Under the most harrowing of personal circumstances, Martin Rinkart composed this uplifting hymn of gratitude for God’s myriad acts of loving kindness, a hymn that is often sung even today …

The examples of the many great saints of our Christian faith are like a beacon lighting our way in these difficult times. Like them, let us maintain hope in the face of the trials that stand before us. Let the heartbreak of many in our community lift us to faith in God’s sweet intention towards our Souls. Insofar as we may, let us speak to the pure Spirit within, so that we may find the courage to face calamity with equanimity, and the fortitude steadfastly to practice the Christian corporal works of mercy.

Let us feed the hungry, give water to the thirsty, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless, visit the sick, visit the imprisoned, ransom those held captive. and bury the dead.

There is a passage in Matthew 25 that speaks most poignantly to this time of Ascension on Earth. This passage brilliantly limns the manner in which we may choose to address the momentous days that lie before us, through works of mercy practiced in loving remembrance of Christ …

Matthew 25:31-46 (KJV, public domain)

31 “When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

32 “And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

33 “And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

34 “Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

35 “For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

36 “Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

37 “Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

38 “When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

39 “Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

40 “And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

41 “Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

42 “For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:

43 “I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

44 “Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

45 “Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.

46 “And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.”

Surely none has spoken, nor likely ever will speak, more eloquently or to the point, than Christ himself has done. This passage sets us on a sure path through faith in Him, even in the face of  the most devastating hailstorm of temporal sorrow.

CONCLUSION

In these days of woe, shall we stand with Christ and act on his behalf? In truth, what we may do for the disempowered, the disadvantaged, and the disenfranchised people of Los Angeles, is what we may be privileged to do for Christ Himself in this lifetime.

It is the Body of Christ Himself to whom we minister. It is He whom we feed, whom we clothe, for whom we provide potable water, for whom we find lodging, whom we help to find a sure path after release from prison, and whom we seek to ransom from malefic entities … whether human or clothed in mists beyond our ken … who hold them prisoner.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Call to Action: The Spectre of Social Unrest in Los Angeles . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 7 May 2019

Dear Ones,

At the level of the borderline poverty working family in Los Angeles today, there is a yearning for home ownership that is part and parcel of the American dream. Yet because of the high entry bar to home ownership, few blue collar working families can hope to achieve this dream.

This gives rise to hopelessness regarding the American way of life, for masses of people who feel that home ownership will be forever beyond their grasp. It is just such feelings of hopelessness that cause lack of faith in the American way of life, and can promulgate social unrest; even thoughts of revolution and of more even distribution of property through Communism.

Social unrest threatens those who own homes, those who have higher paying jobs, and those who offer employment here in Los Angeles. Thus it is in the best interests of those of us who have vested interests in this city, to offer hope to Los Angeles families who are economically less advantaged, whether they be renters of apartments or of rooms.

Here are two cost-effective ways to mitigate the spectre of social unrest in Los Angeles …

  • For borderline poverty working families who are renters, Los Angeles might offer apartment buildings with a ‘rent to own’ or ‘lease to own’ option. This option might be promoted through a State of California or local tax credit to apartment building owners.
  • In addition we could offer a Los Angeles or California monthly lottery prize of a home, so that the American dream of home ownership might be laid out and monthly publicized as a possibility, even for those who are as yet unable to obtain ‘rent to own’ or ‘lease to own’ housing.

I feel these two proposals, which are relatively inexpensive and might easily be embarked upon, would appeal to both the inchoate yearning and the realistic plans of Los Angeles families who hope for home ownership … and that they would do so in a manner both concrete and newsworthy.

It is the American dream of home ownership that keeps us strong as a people. No family among us that has the heart to work and to contribute to our community, ought suffer despondency in this regard. Let us raise high the standard of hope for a better tomorrow, for the sake of this great city we all … whether propertied or as yet renting … love and cherish.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

On Noticing Terrorist Actions by Ultra Right and Ultra Left . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 7 May 2019

  • THE IMPORTANCE OF BALANCED NEWS REPORTING IN MITIGATING HATE CRIMES AND TERRORIST ACTS
  • HATE CRIMES IN LOS ANGELES
    • Extreme Right Hate Crimes
    • Extreme Left Hate Crimes

Dear Ones,

I read up on hate crimes in a Los Angeles Police Department resource pamphlet I found at the table in front of the LAPD TownHall – Valley Bureau in Canoga Park on 27 March 2019. The information in the pamphlet was quite similar to that here …

Link: “Hate Crime Circular,” by the Los Angeles Police Department … http://www.lapdonline.org/crime_prevention/content_basic_view/8808 ..

On the topic of hate crimes, I have some thoughts  that are pertinent not only to the City of Los Angeles, but also to big cities all over America, I feel.

THE IMPORTANCE OF BALANCED NEWS REPORTING IN MITIGATING HATE CRIMES AND TERRORIST ACTS

I note at the outset my concern that the mass media sometimes qualify hate crimes as ‘terrorist activities’ and sometimes not … depending, I feel, on the popularity, in the public eye, of the class of people that are being terrorized.

To my own mind, hatred of any group of people can lead to domestic ‘terrorist’ activities. I have the hope that national organizations such as Homeland Security are taking into account that cultures, nationalities, and religions that Americans look upon with a jaundiced eye, might more likely be the victims of hate crimes than might those cultures, nationalities, and religions that Americans look upon with favor, or with pity, as being the victims of hate crimes in years gone by.

HATE CRIMES IN LOS ANGELES

What with the economic problems here in the City of Los Angeles, I feel that many people are feeling more fearful of the changing times than in years past.

Extreme Right Hate Crimes

When property owners (such as myself) and business owners are faced with issues of homeless camping here and there, mail thefts, and home invasions, I feel there is a greater chance of extreme right terrorist activities … what you might call ultra conservative hate crimes … taking place.

Extreme Left Hate Crimes

Extreme Left For the disadvantaged, including rehabbed felons and unhomed, as well as for those amongst Angelenos (of whatever culture or ideology) who are very idealistic, the possibility arises, in times of change, that extreme left terrorist activities … say, fascist or revolutionary notions … might surface.

My concern is this: That the Los Angeles Police Department will be on the lookout for both sorts of hate crimes: extreme right, and extreme left? I feel that the moderate, middle path to solving the problems Los Angeles faces in the present day will surely help keep our city healthy and hopeful of a good tomorrow.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Cannibal Song: The 29-Flavor Barbecue . aka Ogreish Stew . a poem by Alice B. Clagett

Written on 2 May 2019

Dear Ones,

Here is a new poem for you, about an event that … I am pleased to convey … did not take place in the year 2016, in Red Rock Canyon State Park, Santa Clarita, California, fairly close to where I live …

CANNIBAL SONG: THE 29-FLAVOR BARBECUE … aka OGREISH STEW
A Poem by Alice B. Clagett
2 May 2019

Soundtrack

 

Words

Where do you put a cannibal kid?
Into a pot and under a lid?

Is it the ego, or maybe the id?
What could be broke in the cannibal kid?

How do you figure a cannibal’s bile
Relates to the things you consider worthwhile?

What do you say to the cannibal’s guile
When the charming man says, with a toothsome smile,

“Will you drop by my place for a while?
“I make a mean meatloaf. I’ll do it in style!”

What, oh what will that ogre make you?
People tartare. or cannibal stew
Or 29-flavor barbecue?

Shall we eschew, or hie ourselves nigh
That camo cook with a cloaked banzai?

Consider what might be required of the guest
And just say no! to that wry guy’s jest.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Pasquinade

Anthropophagy Is definitely
Not this poetess’ cup of tea!
