Fundraiser for Enlightening Music

Hello dear music friends,
 
Thank you for visiting The Outback Gypsies on CD Baby and purchasing ‘Annunaki Return’.  We hope you have been enjoying the song. 
 
My name is Andrea Fisher and my husband Del and I co-wrote the song with James Gilliland during our stay at ECETI Ranch last August during our US tour. 
 
Since then we have co-written another song with James as well as writing an album’s worth of new music which is now ready to be recorded.  All of the songs cover themes included in James’ book ‘Reunion with Source’ and the music contains beautiful healing frequencies.
 
Given your support for ‘Annunaki Return’, I thought you might be interested in pledging my Kickstarter Campaign which was launched yesterday.  The fundraiser is designed to raise money for recording and production.  The album will include a studio version of ‘Annunaki Return’ (with different instrumentation), as well as a second song written by James and my own songs including ‘Star Child’, ‘Divine Evolution’ and ‘All Life is Precious’.
 
The campaign runs for 30 days with many different levels of pledges and even a $5 pledge would help in reaching the $5,500 target.
 
I would love you to visit the project via the link below. 
 
Every step toward making this happen is valued.  I hope you feel touched and inspired to become part of the journey of this music. 
 
Thank you for your time reading and for already supporting independent music. 
 
With warmth and gratitude,
 
 
Andrea Fisher

Kevin Annett: Pope Francis', Vatican's, Jesuits' media statements/acts respond to Common Law court


A forlorn goat gets happy ~ Reunion

A goat and a donkey, reunited.
It blows  my mind that some humans, in fact a lot of humans, do not understand that animals have feelings and make friendships , just like we do.
I cannot comprehend why humanity is so stunned when it comes to this.
Watch this video and see the love these two have and what it is like for the goat to be reunited with his donkey friend. Thank heaven too, or the goat may not have eaten much again. Some cats when relinquished to the SPCA and other shelters, will stop eating as the heartache is too much for them to bare at being dumped off from what was their family.
Oh for the day when humanity wakes up and comes from the heart towards the animals.

Space Weather News for May 23, 2014


http://spaceweather.com

METEOR ALERT: This weekend, Earth will pass through a stream of debris from Comet 209P/LINEAR. If forecasters are correct, the encounter could produce an outburst of bright meteors numbering more than 200 per hour. Most models agree that peak rates should occur between the hours of 0600 UT and 0800 UT (2 a.m. and 4 a.m. EDT) on Saturday morning, May 24th, a time frame that favors observers in North America. It is worth noting, however, that Earth has never encountered this stream of debris before, so forecasters cannot be certain of their predictions. The display could be a complete dud, a fantastic "meteor storm," or anything in between. Visit http://spaceweather.com for full coverage.

Camelopardalis Meteor Showers - May 23-24 2014Gillian MacBeth-LouthanThursday, 22 May, 2014
Coming to a circumpolar constellation near you: an all-new, never-before-seen, meteor shower that just might knock your astronomical socks off. It's called the Camelopardalis meteor shower and unlike other annual meteor showers. it will occur for the first time the night of May 23 and early morning of May 24.

Camelopardalis Meteor Showers - May 23-24 2014Gillian MacBeth-Louthan
Thursday, 22 May, 2014

http://spiritlibrary.com/gillian-macbeth-louthan/camelopardalis-meteor-shower-may-23-24-2014?utm_source=Spirit+Library+Updates&utm_campaign=1995caf8e4-Daily_Update&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_ef6a5211f4-1995caf8e4-120802434

Well folks here we go again getting seeded from deep space with a brand new meteor storm first time ever for earth. As we all well know meteors are all from different parts of the universe. They are older than time and always have an agenda. Last year meteorites were found in the Sahara desert that were from Mars, when cut open they had  life in them. I totally believe that these space rocks come to give us something that we must need.

But what gift does the universe have for us for us, as this is an event horizon.  My husband collects meteors and has for years, recently he cut into one we had bought from some Moroccans and it was one heck of an experience for him. All kinds of energies came out. Some visual, like long streams of light and others physical like space mush. I made him be careful and use gloves. Even the debris had a life force. so to know we are once AGAIN receiving a ‘stellar seeding’ is most interesting. Nothing is by accident everything has a purpose. Some schools of thought say we were seeded from meteors in the very beginning of earth, others say we came from the Stars themselves. Either way, ya’all get ready for an infusion from the heart of the universe.

Coming to a circumpolar constellation near you: an all-new, never-before-seen, meteor shower that just might knock your astronomical socks off. It's called the Camelopardalis meteor shower and unlike other annual meteor showers. it will occur for the first time the night of May 23 and early morning of May 24.

The Camelopardalis meteor’s  will be debris from Comet 209P/LINEAR, a comet that  orbits the sun every five years; the comet was discovered in 2004 the Camelopardalis meteor shower will be a meteor storm producing hundreds of meteors per hour.

Meteor showers are named for the constellation from which the meteors come from. Camelopardalis will be from the constellation Camelopardalis (the giraffe) it is a circumpolar constellation, which means that it goes around Polaris, the North Star, so it's up all night. It's also easy to find because it's close to the Big Dipper and Little Dipper.

Astronomers predict peak activity for the shower will be from 2 to 4 a.m. May 24, but there is a big possibility of a wider window. They could start as soon as it gets dark the night of the 23rd. best to go out and check every few hours you do not want to miss this event.

Since this meteor shower is named after a stellar giraffe it is important that we take a look at that energy.

Giraffe's medicine includes seeing far into the future, the ability to reach things that are unreachable to others.  
The giraffe is the tallest of all animals, growing up to 18 feet high, with a neck as long as 7 feet. Giraffe helps us see our lives at a higher perspective. This energy is about the need 'to stick one's neck out.'  taking risks by going further than we ever imagined possible.

Giraffes legs are firmly planted on the earth, but their heads are in the sky they link heaven and earth. Their flexible necks let them see what is behind, next to and in front of them. This gives them the ability to know the future and understand the past.

Giraffe says it is time to allow your foresight to lead the way. Your gut instincts and clairvoyance are telling you something. Listen to your heart. You have the gift of higher perception and inner awareness. Make your words count and share your awareness with others. You often know the future and can sense what is going to happen.

Mc Minville UFO Fest

EcetiWebBanner
Mc Minville UFO Fest
Mc Min,ville has well earned its reputation as the Sodom and Gamorrah of ufology. It has been long orchestrated by Peter Davenport with the National UFO Reporting Center who once held a position of Russian Translator for NSA. There has been a long history of ridicule of anyone who reports any ufos on or near Mt Adams to Peters organization The National UFO Reporting Center. Engineers who were sent to discredit ECETI had profound experiences, wrote reports and were censored. One in particular challenged Peter for changing her report. Sightings near Mt Adams have been moved over to Mt Rainer, one of the most famous ones was 14 tree planters who watched an elk be abducted by a ship. Comments like tell me when the little green men show up to witnesses in my book is very unprofessional.
Kenneth Arnold's report who coined the word flying saucers back in 1947 states clearly he lost sight of the ships when they landed on the western slopes of Mt Adams. Fire towers, forest rangers, police, Greg Long, David Ackers, even Dr J Allen Hynek did research in the area. Native Americans have a long history of interaction with off worlders and stories of the enlightened ones living underneath the mountain who healed their sick and wounded. Yet Peter says there is no history of activity whatsoever on Mt Adams despite the mountain of evidence and ongoing activity. Mt Adams and ECETI are now an internationally known UFO Hot Spot. We have to ask why is this ongoing activity being censored? Robbie Williams UK pop star came to the ranch and was overwhelmed with all the ufo activity. Danny Dyer did a special on UFOs and said he was on UFO overload after seeing so many ships at ECETI. This was after traveling the world in search of UFOs coming up empty. Paramormal State filmed the ships appearing exactly when and where we said they would appear, also validated by their own psychic Chip Coffee. Even Sean Hannity with Fox news sent a crew who witnessed and filmed the ships. Literally tens of thousands of people, triple PHD Boeing Engineers, Lockheed Engineers, Air Force Base Commanders, Pilots, Air Traffic Controllers and professional people from all walks of life have come to ECETI, witnessed the activity and have gone on record. Some event testified with Art Bell on Coast to Coast. Now George Noory is joining Peter who has also avoided the ongoing activity at ECETI like the plague. Maybe it is time to ask them both why? People dressing up like aliens, making a carnival concerning ufos destroys the credibility of any true research and marginalizes the big picture. Is there any wonder why the masses have not had contact when the pillars in the UFO community make a mockery of the subject censor and ignore ongoing UFO activity and contact? This is not a side show, a personality contest what is happening at ECETI and Mt Adams is for real, fully documented with tens of thousands of eyewitnesses, pictures and video. There have been up to two hundred witnesses present when a ship flew over the ranch after an intention experiment. Did you hear about this? Was it reported or covered? Has Mc Minnville ever covered what is going on in their own back yard? Do you wonder why UFOs are still a mystery. At ECETI they are IFOs. Identified flying objects, we know the occupants. Why is this information being kept from the people? Maybe it is time to ask.
Be well,
James Gilliland

Amy Winehouse I love you more than you'll ever know LIVE (Inédit RARE)


ET Abductee: “Disclosure” event planned using human-looking offspring of hyperdimensional predatory Grey ETs
VANCOUVER, BC - In an May. 15, 2014 interview with Alfred Lambremont Webre on ExopoliticsTV, a 33 year old male ET abductee using the moniker “George” to remain anonymous confirmed that his interactions with hyperdimensional predatory Grey ETs and his discussions with fellow abductees indicate that this species may be planning a “Disclosure” event planned using human-looking hyperdimensional offspring of hyperdimensional predatory Grey ETs. ET abductee “George”, who is based in the Vancouver, BC area indicates that this event may be planned for the end of 2014, although it could occur in 2015-16 depending upon contingencies.
In the interview, ET Abductee George agreed that the target of the predatory ETs is the human soul, and that spreading awareness among our communities of the importance of a spiritual and soul-centered life is vital for our planetary and species success, as well as coordination with advanced, ethical interdimensional civilizations and spiritual forces.
In an earlier Oct. 15, 2013 ExopoliticsTV interview with Alfred Lambremont Webre ET Abductee George confirmed numerous repeated abductions and electromagnetic tortures that he ascribes to a predatory hyperdimensional species that have stated their intent is to ultimately displace humanity on planet Earth. 
Hyperdimensional species & Transhumanist Agenda, Vatican
When asked how he could distinguish the torture he received from that  which Targeted Individuals (TIs) receive from electromagnetic weapons or nano-implants of the Transhumanist Agenda, ET Abductee George replied that his group of abductees had determined that the terrestrial NWO Transhumanist Agenda controllers do not possess this level of advanced mind control weaponry they are experiencing from the hyperdimensional ET species, as they have extensively researched leading edge terrestrial human neural and  mind control technology.
In the interview, it was noted that both Popes Ratzinger and Bergoglio had spoken out publicly in recent weeks about an extraterrestrial agenda, as if creating an opening for the “Disclosure” event that the hyperdimensional ETs reportedly spoke about.

DVA Updates & News
DVA is Very Happy to Welcome our New Board Members
 

Tashi Nyima was born and raised in Puerto Rico.  As a monk in the Jonang lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, Tashi has studied with and completed extensive retreats with eminent teachers of various other lineages, including His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Tashi is currently the spiritual director of the New Jonang Buddhist Community in Dallas, Texas. http://greatmiddleway.wordpress.com/ongoing/  Tashi-la shares Dharma teachings in fluent Spanish and English. Tashi is also a physician and has held a number of leadership positions including a fifteen year term as Executive Director for Policy and Planning at Boston’s Latin American Health Institute.  


David Higgins has studied the Dharma and practiced meditation in the Vipassana/Theravada tradition since 2011 under the guidance of Bob Isaacson in San Diego,California.  He has a Ph. D. in molecular biology and genetics and had a career in the biotechnology industry, including experience in drug development.  He currently serves on the Executive Committee of the Center for Ethics in Science and Technology.  Dr. Higgins’ scientific background and interest is in the development of alternatives to animal testing leading to its elimination in both research and in the testing of household and personal hygiene products. This background and interest will support his important work for DVA of reaching out to Buddhist temples, monasteries, and retreat centers to encourage the use of cruelty-free products.

 


DVA is Very Pleased to Welcome our New Members 


Chatral Rinpoche, World Renowned Dzogchen Master


Kyabje Chatral Sangye Dorje Rinpoche is one of the few living disciples of the great master Khenpo Ngagchung and is widely regarded as one of the most highly realized Dzogchen Masters.  

He became the head spiritual teacher for the Regent Reting Rinpoche, the political ruler of Tibet in 1947. The huge amount of attention drawn to him through this prestigious position was a distraction from his practice, and he retreated back to the mountains where he spent the next several years in solitary meditation until he reached the highest state of realization.
 
Today he stays in his own small place in Parphing, Nepal near a sacred site of Guru Admassambhava who founded Buddhism in Tibet. He is married to DVA member and contributor, Sangyum Kamala, and has two daughters, Tara Devi and Saraswati Devi.  Although he has never traveled to the West, his amazing story and teachings have gradually infiltrated Western Buddhist consciousness since Father Thomas Merton first met him in 1968 and famously remarked that he was "the greatest man I ever met."
   
Chatral Rinpoche is one of the most vocal opponents of meat eating in Tibetan Buddhism. During the traditional long retreat and at all of Rinpoche’s monasteries, temples, and retreat centers, only vegetarian food is served.  Chatral Rinpoche is renowned for releasing large numbers of fish from the Calcutta fish markets every year, as well as saving many birds and land animals from slaughter.  
   
Dharma Voices for Animals is especially honored that Chatral Rinpoche has decided to add his voice to that of all our members since we are the first organization in the West that he has ever endorsed.    

 
The Venerable Metteyya Sakyaputta 

Venerable Metteyya is a 27-year-old Buddhist monk born in Lumbini, Nepal. Over the past 10 years he has taught the Dharma around the world and has been an inspiration for compassionate action, founding a nunnery (Peace Grove Institute), two primary schools (Metta Schools), and a girls’ college (Karuna Girls College).  Over 900 impoverished rural village children are receiving an education due to the Venerable’s work.  Ven. Metteyya is a lifelong vegetarian and has always been concerned with animals, helping  them as a child during the monsoons and cold seasons.
 
Ven. Metteyya is the spiritual guide of Canadian Engaged Buddhism Association (CEBA) in Edmonton, Canada, which is a Sangha that includes dedicated vegetarians, environmentalists and animal rights activists.  He was also one of the featured scholars in the 2010 PBS documentary “The Buddha” and was portrayed alongside other well-known meditators in the 2014 documentary “On Meditation” which premiered at the Rubin Museum in New York City.  When in Nepal he lives with 4 cats, numerous dogs, birds, snakes and frogs, and when in Canada he lives with 3 cats, 2 dogs and several fishes.
 
More information about Ven. Metteyya and some of his work can be found at:
 
 
 

Guruma Bodhi Sakyadhita 

Bodhi is a Theravada Buddhist nun and teaches Dharma and meditation at Canadian Engaged Buddhism Association (CEBA) in Edmonton, Canada and at Peace Grove Institute in Lumbini, Nepal.  She is the Dharma Mother of Venerable Metteyya, a founding member of both CEBA and Peace Grove Institute (Nunnery and Girls College), and assists with funding and fundraising for Metta Schools, Karuna Girls College, and the upcoming Bodhi Institute Peace Education Centre in Nepal.  
 
Bodhi has been an environmental scientist for 25 years, is a board member of the Edmonton Interfaith Centre for Education and Action, was the first Buddhist Chaplain at the University of Alberta, and founded and directed Elephants in Need (a non-profit helping Sri Lankan elephants) for 7 years.  Though raised and currently living in "cattle country," Bodhi has been a vegetarian for 20 years (8 of those as a vegan).
 

Venerable Heng Yin Shi 


Heng Yin is a nun living at the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas (www.CTTBusa.org) in Talmage, California, just next to Ukiah.  CTTB was founded by Tripitaka Master Hsuan Hua and is a community of monastics and laypeople living in accordance with the teachings of the Buddha.  Residents of CTTB practice a strict vegetarian (vegan) diet.

 

 DVA Sending A Delegate to the World Fellowship of Buddhists Conference in Baoji, China

 
As we announced in our last newsletter, the World Fellowship of Buddhists (WFB), the largest Buddhist organization in the world, voted for the first time ever to invite an advocacy organization to become a Regional Center. We are proud to report Dharma Voices for Animals is that organization! 

The next WFB conference will held in Baoji, China October 16-18, 2014.  DVA will be formally admitted at this conference.  The 400 delegates attending will represent all of the Asian countries where Buddhism is practiced and will include many of the most influential and well-known men and women in the Buddhist world.  Many of the delegates will be Dharma teachers and Buddhist leaders.

DVA president Bob Isaacson will attend and meet the delegates to:

1) Discuss compassion for animals;
2) Identify those delegates who are qualified and willing to serve as founders of DVA chapters in their home towns and cities; and
3) Encourage the Dharma teachers in attendance to be a voice for animals by adopting a policy of not teaching at any center or monastery that serves animal flesh.  Additionally, we will ask that they mention in Dharma talks their own practice as a vegetarian or vegan and that such a practice honors the Buddha’s teachings.  

After the conference, Bob will visit monasteries, retreat centers, and temples in Taiwan and South Korea where he will continue pursuing DVA's three goals.
 
This is a great opportunity for DVA to connect with the leaders of the approximately 500 million Buddhists in the world, most of whom are Asian.  But, to make this happen we need your help.  

One of our members has generously offered to match dollar for dollar each donation up to $6,000. If you are interested in supporting our first international DVA trip - the Road to Asia - and want to double the impact of your donation, please click the donate button.

DVA Producing Film on Animals and the Dharma


DVA is pleased to announce the upcoming release of our film “Animals and the Dharma” which we hope to complete by the end of the summer.  The film explores the place that animals hold in the Dharma and will be based in large part on interviews with twelve Dharma teachers from around the world.  The film will be posted on our website, Facebook page, and You Tube, and we will encourage Sanghas, retreat centers, and monasteries all over the world to watch it and discuss its content.  The film will also be distributed for free and will serve as an excellent opportunity for leading an “Animals and the Dharma” pot luck where you play the video, discuss it afterwards, and eat delicious vegetarian or vegan food. We will keep you updated on the progress of the film.
