Moving Numbers (poetry)

Chased by cascading numbers
Destined to pursue the rotating prefixes
Pasted upon revolving orbs
In ecliptic planes.
To catch a falling knife
By its handle,
Not blade?
No, but to simply pick it up
Once it has stopped
And made its mark.
Those are the patterns I see,
The fixed points I sense,
And the moving lines I feel.
Patterns rise and fall
And sing a song
Through the heavens.
Even though our ears do not hear them –
Since their perception limits
Do not permit certain inaudibles
To be captured –
Though this is as much,
It does not negate the existence
Of such.
Years ago, many others were scorned
For claiming the moon ruled the waters;
Yet now, even surfers thank La Luna
For the tides.
What else will be recognized
In coming years?
Meanwhile, I’ll continue to enjoy
Watching the numbers flow.

Thoughts from a few weeks ago

For some reason today, my mind seems to be on fire.  My eyes burn, my ears aren’t filtering out noise, and everything seems to be so loud!  I’ve hidden myself away in a quiet room, trying to find peace in the moment and get work done that I need to get done.  So many things are on my mind, though, that I can’t focus on just one thing and get it done.

So many things plague me – are nagging at my mind and heart: I want to serve mightily, to publish more books, and to figure out the commodities markets.  The cause of the markets’ patterns are so elusive, though.  Right there in front of me one minute and then bouncing around out of range the next.  It’s almost as if I’m chasing a mirage.  Trying to catch smoke in my hand.  That’s what it feels like some days.  Trying to come together in some sense but then coming unglued again.  The pieces don’t fit together nicely for some reason, yet.

My hearing seems enhanced today – much like every other day of my life.  Teaching in the classroom at school was deathly at times.  I’ve tried to explain it to people, but some just don’t understand.  So, it felt like the discussion a monologue, responded to with glazed over stares.

So many times, people are just trite in life.  They only focus on the immediate, the here and now, and the ‘id’ part of existence.  They seem to forget that there’s a whole other part of life that involves real living.  Living happily.  Finding joy in the things we do every day that will piece together this thing we call “life” and help make it make sense.

I know that nothing makes sense without God.  The foundation of the Earth was set at his command, and he built it the way he did on purpose.  That’s really the only thing that makes this life bearable.  Knowing that He’s there in the midst of all the crap we deal with makes it all worthwhile.  Without him, it wouldn’t be worthwhile at all.

Solar Flare = Earthquake, Political Change, or Market Drop this week?

With two huge solar flares occurring earlier today (Tuesday, 10 June 2014), it will be interesting to see what happens as a result later this week.  Heavier particles from the flares will take a couple of days or so to hit our magnetic field.  When they do, be prepared for changes.

Historically, things have been shaken up by the large flares.  Earthquakes, sweeping political changes, and market drops have occurred within days of past, large solar flares.

Why earthquakes from solar flares?  The sun produces energy — a lot of energy.  That energy affects the Earth’s magnetic field, which affects the Earth’s mantel, which affects the tectonic plates, which offer up the earthquakes.

Why political / geopolitical changes?  Again, the energy coming from the sun affects people’s perception of things.  The increased electricity in the air will cause people to react differently than they normally would.  The human body is comprised mostly of water.  Water is an excellent conductor of electricity.  Increased electricity coming from the sun in a burst may very well cause mass “bursting” of ideas, which when coupled with mass mentality, results in a “movement”.

Why a market drop / small crash?  Market prices are the direct translation of human perception as influenced by external and internal forces (i.e. energy).  People react to the energy or vibe (i.e. vibration) of a room.  You and I do it all the time without usually noticing it, but we still do it.  Market traders / investors react to the vibe of a market and buy or sell accordingly.

Go back and look at the data related to dates, times, and locations of specific solar flares and resulting big picture things.  I think your eyes will be opened.

I know, some of this may be out there for some people.  It doesn’t change the historical correlation and causation of solar activity and corresponding world events.  I’ll let this week’s upcoming events speak for themselves in connection to today’s flares.
