Dear Ones,

Who is Dharm Darshan? Dharm Darshan is me, Alice Clagett! Why is that?

My spiritual name from my 3HO (Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization) days is ‘Dharm Darshan Kaur Khalsa.’ Sometimes folks, in their thoughts, abbreviate and mispronounce this (either with affection or with distaste) as “Darm Doo” or “Darn Darsh” and so on. I prefer the Indian language pronunciation.

In the ancient Indian language known as Gurmukhi, there is a consonant ‘d’, which is pronounced rather like the English ‘d’. But then in Gurmukhi there is also the consonant ‘dh’.

The way to say it is to begin to speak the letter ‘d’, but with a little outrush or puff of air through the mouth at the same time. Tricky!

The word ‘Dharm’ means ‘dharma’ … the path of righteousness … the ‘right’ path … as opposed to the path of ‘karma’.

The path of karma is to get one’s kudos and rewards, and one’s knocks and kicks from life, as a result of one’s wrong or right actions in the world.

There was a popular TV show once called “Greg and Dharma.” The female star of the show had the same name as the first name in my spiritual name.

However my first name, back then, was not just ‘Dharm’ but ‘Dharm Darshan.’ There is this other word ‘Darshan,’ which means to learn from a spiritual teacher.

So then I translate the Gurmukhi name ‘Dharm Darshan,’ for my personal understanding, as “the one who walks the ‘right’ path and listens to the Divine Teacher within.”

The word ‘Kaur’ means ‘princess’ and used to be the middle name of all the women who asked for spiritual names from Yogi Bhajan, the founder of 3HO.

The word ‘Khalsa’ means ‘society of pure ones’. It is the name Yogi Bhajan gave to all the people, both male and female, who asked him for a spiritual name.

A spiritual name is something one strives to live up to all one’s life long. It expresses the longing of our Soul for expression in human form, and the hope of our Soul to strive to fulfill its Soul mission in this lifetime.

It is true, I am a Christian. Nevertheless, I still treat my spiritual name with respect. Yogi Bhajan and his staff had quite a knack about them, of seeing deeply into the spiritual truth of things. I feel they judged well in giving me my spiritual name. I am grateful to be known, in the heavenly realms, as Dharm Darshan Kaur Khalsa.

And keep you safe,
And be with you
Through all your days!

In love, light and joy,

Dear Ones,

Here is my journal about some odd occurrences in my own life of late. My conclusions are at the end of the blog. But what are your conclusions about these events?

WHORE IN A RED LIGHT DISTRICT OF AN ORIENTAL PORT TOWN?

About 7 April 2022, Thursday  — In the afternoon I went to the back fence in my backyard to clear the weeds and make small repairs on the fence. Behind my back fence is a steep hill belonging to the neighbors below. The house to their left has a swimming pool in the backyard.

From where I was standing I could hear quite a commotion in the pool. I could only see the righthand part of the lefthand neighbor’s pool because of the small trees running down the hill along the property line between my two down-the-hill neighbors. There were big waves of water in the pool. There was a surpassingly loud, enthusiastic voice of a child or woman yelling over and over again: Let’s have sex! Let’s have sex right now!

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I have for you today a somewhat catastrophic Tesla science fiction skit. It goes like this …

The Tesla satellites are flying all over Earth, distributing what was vaunted to be free electricity to all the people of Earth. But what was not taken into consideration was the ability of these electrical downloads to start forest fires.

Fires started everywhere. Civilizations collapsed. Then it was found that the electric fields of human beings were affected by what might be termed the ‘rogue’ Tesla satellite strikes, as there was no one to position the satellites correctly anymore.
