Mary Burgess:

What do the constellations mean? The following Bible quotations are taken from the New International Version  ©1984 and reveal much about the stars:

Job 9:9     – “He is the Maker of the Bear and Orion, the Pleiades and the constellations of the south.”

Job 38:30 – “. . . when the waters become hard as stone, when the surface of the deep is frozen?”

Job 38:32 – “Can you bring forth the constellations in their seasons or lead out the Bear with its cubs?”


Job 38:31-3331 “Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?-31   Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season?-32  . . . or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?-33 Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven-33? . . . canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?” KJV

After pondering the above then it must be possible that there are Earth Angels living and walking among us in human form. In fact, in Doreen Virtue’s heavenly book entitled Realms of the Earth Angels is a must read for those of you interested in learning more about our universe as it pertains to each of us, right here and right now on Earth, in order to gain more knowledge about the heavens and to have a better understanding of how our Earth fits into the scheme of things, and better yet, where some of us are from, why we are here, and what we hope to accomplish.

There are many different realms of Earth Angels and some of us are even a blend of two or more realms. From the Old Testament or the Torah we can learn so much about our Creator’s plan for not only us, or the Earth we live upon, but a more universal plan. This is why so many people have encountered humans who are Incarnated Angels. Some of these angels are only here for a brief period of time to assist someone, to prevent a tragedy, or are here to live out their entire lives in a human body to help out during challenging times.  I would say we are living in challenging times today, do you agree?

Back in 1990 I returned here to the Phoenix, Arizona area on vacation to visit my mother. I was living in the Netherlands at the time with my then Dutch husband, Joop (his name has been changed here for reasons of privacy). We had met while working at a Dutch international company’s subsidiary here in Phoenix that provides production solutions for wafer processing, assembly and packaging of semiconductor devices. The headquarters for this company is located in Bilthoven, Netherlands and the reason why we relocated there for my now ex-husband’s job promotion at the time. He is retired now, but was a brilliant mechanical engineer and he had received a promotion at the time to go into a management position at the headquarters office.  I will say that with my careful guidance through a difficult period in his career he went on to develop many patents at yet more companies, including a Tokyo company. I also indirectly saved his life on one occasion by warning him against going with another start-up company. He listened to me, but only because he knew I spoke to him in business terms he understood and he could not deny the pros and cons we discussed. His co-worker there in Bilthoven, and dear friend, was not so lucky. But this story I will save for another post.

While working at the Phoenix office we became friends with another co-worker who was to play a major role in my awakening process. Here I will call him Tim (again, his name has been changed for privacy reasons). It was Tim who invited us over for dinner one evening to see his new home during this 1990 vacation visit. Now here I must say that Joop, as an engineer, was very neutral in his spiritual beliefs. In fact, he claimed to be agnostic; a person who believes that nothing is known or can be known of the existence or nature of God or of anything beyond material phenomena. Naturally I had just assumed that Tim was similar to Joop in his beliefs as are many engineers or those in highly technical jobs. What was about to happen next absolutely floored me!

Joop excused himself briefly after dinner and Tim used this time to hand me a piece of paper with a phone number on it. He told me I needed to call and make an appointment with this man, someone he had been to see more than once and trusted, before I returned to the Netherlands. He told me that I would understand once I met with him, but that Joop would not understand. Please know here that Tim and I had not spoken in-depth about any metaphysical, religious or spiritual matters. I believe only that I had given my view on a topic that leaned in that direction, but, since I did not want these two men to feel uncomfortable I refrained from saying more than I felt I needed to touch upon.  Joop had to leave the next morning to return to Holland for work and I was staying on an additional week. We said goodbye to Tim and left.

The next day I called the number on the piece of paper Tim had given me to make my appointment. I spoke first with a woman who then had me speak with her partner. We made the appointment for the next morning at 10:00 a.m. The man told me only to focus upon any issues or physical problems I needed addressed. He told me he did not want to know what they were, but to just focus on them prior to our appointment.

I was a bit nervous and did not know what to expect, but since I trusted Tim and knew that he had a reason for telling me about this man, that all would be fine.  When I got to the apartment address I’d been given I knocked and a beautiful woman with long blonde hair answered the door. Her aura or the energy around her was so peaceful and kind. She invited me in. Her partner, Brad (again not his real name for privacy reasons), then came into the living room and introduced himself and took me back to his consultation room. Stepping into the room I suddenly felt so much energy my heart began to pound. It was as if a form of electricity was running through my whole body!

The room contained two comfortable chairs with a small corner table between them. There were huge crystals of amethyst, quartz and various other stones standing on the floor, on shelves and on the table, including one I learned later that was not from this planet. I did not know what to expect next so I just let it all unfold. Brad began to speak and told me many things about myself that he had no way of knowing and that went back to my childhood. He told me I was from the Vega system, which I knew absolutely nothing about at the time, and even spoke the language of what he said were my people. Interestingly it was very similar to French, sounding so expressive and beautiful.  Now, I have to say here that I was thinking, “Is this guy for real?” As if he could read my mind, which he most certainly did, he reached his left hand out and put it on top of my knee. I felt a current go through not only my leg, but my whole body. This lasted a short while and then he took his hand away. One of the physical issues going on with me at the time which I had not mentioned to him was that ever since I had injured my right knee in a cross-country skiing accident I kept experiencing occasional pain there. Even though this had happened many years earlier, the pain was at times similar to a dull toothache. I will tell you now that this pain immediately left me, only to return briefly one time but again, this is another story, and has not returned.

I was in information overload already when Brad proceeded to tell me that he would go out into the desert at an unspecified location and wait to be picked up in a UFO carrier to go for a spin around the galaxy. This happened frequently he told me, but had become more difficult to do as he let me know the U.S. government was watching him and that his telephone was tapped. I thought to myself, “Great, this is all I need!” While part of me believed him I was beginning to get very uncomfortable and wanted to leave so I made my preparations to go. Before I left he told me that he would see me before I returned to Holland. I told him I did not think that was possible since I was leaving in only two days.

The next day around 10:00 a.m. I was at my mother’s home sitting in a chair reading a magazine, relaxing for a few minutes. I was alone in the house. Suddenly I began seeing colored abstract shapes dancing before my eyes. I had not had a migraine headache in over 15 years, but I braced myself because I knew the preliminary signs. This electric light show always occurred for me right before I could barely see and then the pain would slowly intensify. I could not imagine why I was having this happen when all of a sudden, I knew! Brad had said we’d meet again before I left to return to Holland! I quietly asked within myself, “Brad, is that you?” Now, let me be very clear here. I did not hear any voice telling me it was him, but I did receive a knowing or Claircognizant [translates to “clear knowingness”] response that it was him . . . that he was “around” me.  I told him without speaking that he certainly could have picked a better way to come to me! Apparently his energy field was too strong for mine and this may have been why I experienced the migraine blindness, but there was no pain. I kept telling him to go away and that I was uncomfortable with what he was doing. After about 10 minutes I could see again and I felt fine. I believe Brad was just showing me what he could do. What we all can do, except I was never certain if it was just thought projection or something more.

Now the interesting thing is that after returning to the Netherlands and back at work again, about three days after I had returned, the migraine blindness began coming on one morning. Immediately I checked the time as something within me was prompting me to do so, and I discovered it was 10 a.m. Holland time. This was the same time Brad had projected himself to me that morning in Phoenix! I quickly excused myself and went to the restroom where I closed my eyes, went within myself and had yet another quiet, inner conversation with Brad. I asked him to please go away as I was at work. I even let him know he was frightening me. Within just a few minutes all had subsided and I returned to work. This happened two more times spaced out over the next couple of weeks, and each time it was 10 a.m. in the morning! This was Brad’s way of letting me know it really was him.  I quietly asked him to please stop using this astral travel and/or thought projection method on me, as while I appreciated the lessons he was teaching me, they served no purpose for us that I could tell. They finally stopped.  Brad seemed to have activated something inside of me, or caused me to remember that this was even possible, or why. So, I came to understand that what he had shown me is possible for all of us. There are several movies and books that have come out such as Men Who Stare At Goats [ [] and The Psychic Warrior by David Morehouse []  that validated my own experience for me. Brad was truly instrumental in preparing me for things yet to come in my life.

Today we are all psychic warriors whether we are consciously aware of this fact, or not. Our thoughts are very powerful.  I believe this to be the true Armageddon in the Bible. “Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him.” – Revelation 1:7.” What I believe this tells us is that Jesus is coming again via the “ethers” or clouds, or through our minds. And, every “third eye” will see Him. []

Returning now to Vega, the brightest star in the constellation Lyra, the Vega star is only about a tenth of the age of our sun, but it is over two times as large with an expected lifetime again of about only a tenth of that of our sun. Here is where it gets even more interesting. Vega appears to have a circumstellar disk of dust. Stars that display an infrared excess because of dust emission are called “Vega-like stars,” and the irregularities in Vega’s disk also suggest the presence of at least one planet in orbit around Vega that is likely to be the size of Jupiter. In addition, astronomers from the Particle Physics and Astronomy Research Council believe they have discovered a planetary system around Vega. Not only that, the star system seems remarkably similar to our own Solar System. To date they have also found evidence for yet another, Neptune-sized planet in the same orbit as our own Neptune. This means there could be even more, smaller rocky planets closer in to the star.

The following is very similar to the Korean Feng Shui found in our recent Virtual “Vacation” to Grenoble blog post. See what you think:

“In Chinese mythology, there is a love story of Qi Xi (七夕) in which Niu Lang (牛郎, Altair) and his two children (β and y Aquilae) are separated from their mother Zhi Nü (織女, lit. -“Weaving Girl,” Vega) who is on the far side of the river, or the Milky Way.  [Wei, Liming; Yue, L.; Lang Tao, L. (2005), Chinese Festivals, Chinese Intercontinental Press, ISBN 7-5085-0836-X, ISBN 750850836X] However, one day per year on the seventh day of the seventh month of the Chinese lunisolar calendar, magpies make a bridge so that Niu Lang and Zhi Nü can be together again for a brief encounter. The Japanese Tanabata festival, in which Vega is known as orihime (織姫), is also based on this legend.  [Kippax, John Robert (1919), The Call of the Stars: A Popular Introduction to a Knowledge of the Starry Skies with their Romance and Legend, G. P. Putnam’s Sons]

It appears that even in Heaven as there is on Earth, one finds the Five Elements. This may cause us to pause a moment and ask, is our Creator from beyond even Heaven?

A Cup of Green Tea and Aquarius


John Paul [J. Young Bu]:

In our virtual Grenoble vacation, I touched a little on the importance and basic principles of “mountains in back and the river in front” with regard to how Grenoble is situated topographically, according to the so-called Bae-san-im-su (背山臨水) philosophy of Korean traditional “Feng Shui (風水)” analysis. General Feng Shui in China and Japan also has similar concepts but the strongest and most unique is found in this Korean Feng Shui analysis. Here we must dig deeper into the details in order to open the ancient secret box.


Green Tea - tea stained art by Brian Kesinger

Today I want to begin our conversation with a cup of green tea and later you may come to understand how it relates to “Aquarius,” as you had asked this question earlier. First, I will speak about green tea. Nowadays, and in the Western world too, green tea has become very popular and is becoming a new trend as a healthy drink. So, what is the best kind of water one can use to make green tea? What do you think? In other words, do you know or have you heard which water is best for making green tea? Surprisingly, even many tea experts, chefs and fans of green tea, and even of English-style black tea, know only the subtle temperature to extract the green or black tea, but they still do not know the most important thing with regard to making the best tea, in addition to the temperature of the water.

Tea is originally a very unique drink with a long history, is well-known as a healthy drink, and is good for cancer or obesity, etc., in its effectiveness with regard to being an excellent anti-oxidant. And generally speaking, with regard to black tea prepared in the typical English style, heating water to 99° C (210° F) is best, and for green tea, heating water to a temperature of 75° to 80° C (167 to 176° F) is best.

But these are only some of the faces that this miraculous green tea has. The flavors or taste and extracted materials from the tea differ with regard to using the correct hot water temperature, and in addition, one more important factor is that they differ mainly with regard to the quality of the “water” itself used to make the tea. Especially this is true with regard to the rules of making tea in Buddhist temples that have more than 2,000 years of history drinking green tea for its use in mental and spiritual training, and for curing many patients in various stages of disease or illness.

And, the perfect green tea for a King, or VIP visiting the central palace of a King, is strictly limited to using only a “special water” to make the tea from. Even in Eastern society, to drink the best green tea is a symbol of social status, because of the effectiveness of green tea and the resulting high prices, etc. Also, water is naturally more limited with regard to the type used to make the most delicious and effective tea. The “special water” used to make a King’s green tea, or the best Buddhist tea, is “Gang- sim- su (江心水).” Gang (江) is “river” and sim (心) means “heart” or “center.” And “Gang- sim- su (江心水)” is the water located in the center of a river.

First of all, in this area far from both riverbanks, the water flow velocity is very fast and water in the center of a river is cold. I will postpone a scientific explanation of hydrodynamic energy until the next opportunity to discuss it further in greater detail as it relates to the Yoda dragon effect and other Yoda laws of secret recipes; here we only need to focus on what it is at first. With regard to this, records exist and are found in the King’s diary from the Korean Chosun Dynasty, and “Jung jo” (正祖 1752~1800), one of the good Kings who took pity upon servants and ordinary people, so much so that he prohibited them from making the two-hour one way trip to haul this special water only for him, since these servants had to deliver the water every dawn from the center of a nearby river for the King’s disease. This meant they would have had to make the trip to fetch the water leaving at approximately 1:30 a.m. in the darkness of the early morning hours.

Anyway, to summarize these historical records and other materials, the best water to use when making green tea, by traditional Feng Shui standards, is “water from the center of a river, especially when delivered by dawn.” It is not only for the best tasting green tea, but is also “a water cure” that the King’s records tell us about having to do with the ancient secrets. Hint: Water taken from the “heart” center heals the heart on many levels (body/mind/soul).

Then here, do you understand what is meant by the “center of a river?” Can you draw a line from Lourdes and Grenoble in Europe, to Jerusalem in the Hebrew Bible, and the “Sangama” river in India, to the center of the Hangang River in Seoul, South Korea upon the earth or globe in your mind? What is the one common factor having to do with each location, and what is at the core of these relationships between these locations?

Here I have another version of the Holy Bible from the last draft of Bethesda of the New Testament, where Jesus performed a miracle cure for a patient. What is the main difference between this version of the Bible and the King James Version (KJV)?

“After these things there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. Now there is in Jerusalem by the sheep gate pool, which is called in Hebrew Bethesda, having five porticoes. In these lay a multitude of those who were sick, blind, lame, and withered, [waiting for the moving of the waters; for an angel of the Lord went down at certain seasons into the pool and stirred up the water; whoever then first, after the stirring up of the water, stepped in was made well from whatever disease with which he was afflicted.] (John 5:1 ~4, NASB)

Today, Yoda’s word is a series of Zen questions which are used in Zen training.

“Disciple, a bird is locked within a transparent glass bottle. How will and can you take a bird out of the bottle without breaking it? Tell me how and I will give you all the answers you want. Where is your ‘Aquarius’ right now? “

Mary Burgess:

I feel the joy, excitement and anticipation building in your words “Gang sim su” or the “best magic water for Green Tea,” as in the “joyful opening ceremony or Missa of Holy Communion” for the birthing of Aquarius too!  For our readers here I want to add that the term “Missa” refers to your meaning which includes a metaphorical implication to the Latin “Missa,” or Holy Communion Mass, but also includes the secret recipes.

You asked me where my “Aquarius” is now.  My response to you is my Aquarius moon is in the Seventh House now. You ask the question why the Age of Aquarius is said by some to have begun in 1960 while others say it is to begin in 2012. This is a contentious issue among astrologers. In 1929, the International Astronomical Union defined the edges of the 88 official constellations. From this was established the edge or division between Pisces and Aquarius and it technically locates the beginning of the Aquarian Age around the year 2600. So this even adds to the confusion! But, what is 60 years or so in infinity? I believe many astrologers dispute this approach because of the varying sizes of the zodiacal constellations and overlap between the zodiacal constellations.

Some astrologers then have different ideas of exactly when the Aquarian Age really begins. Some astrologers believe that the influence of a New Age is experienced before it arrives because of a cuspal effect or Orb of Influence. Other astrologers believe the appearance of Aquarian developments indicate the actual arrival of the Age of Aquarius.  Perhaps the I-Ching can give us a more exact date? Or, we can go with the knowing that we are in the “dawning” period of the Age of Aquarius from the beautiful song of the 1960’s, “Aquarius/Let The Sun Shine In” by The Fifth Dimension, was a big hit song in the sixties, with very intuitive lyrics, that carry great symbolism & significance in the times now at hand. Here for your enjoyment is a beautiful rendition:

Age of Aquarius Lyrics

When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars

This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius
The Age of Aquarius
Aquarius! Aquarius!

Harmony and understanding
Sympathy and trust abounding
No more falsehoods or derisions
Golden living dreams of visions
Mystic crystal revelation
And the mind’s true liberation
Aquarius! Aquarius!

When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars

This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius
The Age of Aquarius
Aquarius! Aquarius!

Let the sun shine, Let the sun shine in
The sun shine in
Let the sun shine, Let the sun shine in
The sun shine in . . .

Okay, I don’t know about you, but I am certainly ready for the part about, “Then peace will guide the planets, and love will steer the stars!” But, where is this peace? Is the key to unlock this door to peace found within the center of Kuan Yin’s “bottle,” vase or urn?

You ask why Kuan Yin, future Buddha and savior, carries a vase or bottle, just like the “water bearer” of the Zodiac sign, Aquarius. You ask what is in this bottle. To you I say that water is life . . . or represents life, and if this living water is not respected and protected there will eventually be no more life.  A perfect example of what I mean is as follows:

Proverbs 18:4 – “The words of a man’s mouth are deep waters; the fountain of wisdom is a bubbling brook.” (New American Standard Bible, ©1995)

The interpretation or cross reference given is found in Proverbs 20:5 which states, “The purposes of a man’s heart are deep waters, but a man of understanding draws them out.” (New International Version ©1984 by Biblica). You are this man for me.

I would say the Well of Life or the Living Water is contained within the urn Kuan Yin carries. Interestingly, the story of the Samaritan woman who goes to the well Jacob dug, which metaphorically refers to the Jews seeking Wisdom from the Torah, but the Torah then leads her to Christ instead, to the New Covenant which replaces the Torah. The old well, the Torah, could only give her water for this life, or tell her how to live in this world. The new well, Christ the Wisdom of God, gives living water that bestows eternal life. Yet Kuan Yin came prior to the Torah and the New Covenant. Or, can we say the Torah and the New Covenant came from her? Is she the Living Life of long forgotten Wisdom?

With regard to your Grenoble post you gave us the importance and basic principles of “mountains in back and river in front” with regard to Korean traditional Feng Shui. This is fascinating! So, I am digging deeper for the details in order to open this ancient secret box as you say to do.

At the moment I am feeling the mountains are the spine supporting or even possibly being the vessel for the water around Grenoble. Generally the mountain is comparable to the body, and the waterways to the blood vessels of the human body. The matter of life or death to the human body then depends upon the condition of the blood vessels. When blood is circulated around the body and flows orderly, the person is healthy and strong. When this is disrupted for whatever reason, everyone is subject to disease or death. Here Fukushima comes to mind. We do not know yet the extent or the end result of the damage we will experience now worldwide from this nuclear nightmare. No one is an exception to this natural principle. The correct flow of water and the right location or position of the mountains is what forms an auspicious place. What are the conditions of our earthly waterways, or blood vessels?

Regarding green tea and the best way to make it as it ties into Grenoble and Aquarius would involve paying close attention to the water. This is currently much more involved in the Asian culture than here in the West. In Asia you have elaborate tea ceremonies I believe, and it is a real art form.  There is much training involved, and practice. Water in Korean Feng Shui is classified into many categories. Each category has its function in the formation of fortune and misfortune. Water is especially connected with the increase or decrease of wealth of one’s family. The purpose then and the importance of examining the direction of mountains and waterways, the human body and its blood vessels, and even for making green tea then is to tell the fortune and health of the inhabitants and the descendants with regard to all aspects of health, i.e., body/mind/spirit. This encompasses then everything and gives an even deeper meaning to the saying, “All is in One and One is in All.”

You state that to drink green tea is a good way for mental and spiritual training or as a cure for many patients. I am aware of some of the health benefits but I was unaware of the spiritual training benefits until now. Can you tell me more about this aspect?

As for the King’s “special water” used to make his green tea, you are saying water from the center of a river is the best.  I can understand this as people might bathe near the river bank and animals too might enter the water to drink or live there which would mean their waste, bacteria, etc., would be close to the bank. The center of the river would have much cleaner water and the life force current is greater there too keeping it that way.

Rapidly moving water, such as in a mountain stream or large river, tends to contain a lot of dissolved oxygen, whereas stagnant water contains less. Bacteria in water can consume oxygen as organic matter decays. Thus, excess organic material in lakes and rivers can cause eutrophic conditions, which is an oxygen-deficient situation that can cause a water body “to die.” Aquatic life can have a hard time in stagnant water that has a lot of rotting, organic material in it, especially in summer (the concentration of dissolved oxygen is inversely related to water temperature), when dissolved-oxygen levels are at a seasonal low. Water near the surface of the lake– the epilimnion– is too warm for them, while water near the bottom–the hypolimnion– has too little oxygen.  So, I can understand why the water from the center of a river would be the best choice to make the King’s green tea.

The line from Lourdes and Grenoble in Europe to Jerusalem and to the Sangama River in India to the center of the Hangang River in Seoul Korea forms a wide basin, or perhaps yet another geographical and topographical vase or urn?  France and South Korea are at approximately the same latitude above the other two lower locations. The Sangama River in Bangalore, India is the lowest point of this vase or urn. So, the energies or vibrations found in and around France and South Korea are higher, at a faster rate and are perhaps even more spiritual or auspicious than those found in Jerusalem and India in a more esoteric sense. This relates to the Earth as I state this here and does not reflect upon the people in these areas except that they are most definitely affected by these Earth energies on many levels, however subtle, or not. Can you check this with I-Ching?

Now you are asking me what the difference is in the King James Version (KJV) versus the New American Standard Bible (NASB) version of John 5:1-4. Yes, many untended subtleties can be lost within translations due to issues having to do with the points of reference of the translator. This is why it is important to look at more than one Bible translation. From what I can tell it is the word “porches” in the KJV and “porticoes” in the NASB.

“After these things there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. Now there is in Jerusalem by the sheep gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew Bethesda, having five porticoes. In these lay a multitude of those who were sick, blind, lame, and withered, [waiting for the moving of the waters; for an angel of the Lord went down at certain seasons into the pool and stirred up the water; whoever then first, after the stirring up of the water, stepped in was made well from whatever disease with which he was afflicted.]”

Porches can be either a front or back porch to a home, usually an older home or homes that are built in various parts of the United States. A porticoe appears to be more than a porch. It can also be a walkway with a roof supported by columns often leading to the entrance of a building. As this refers to our physical bodies, specifically, are porticoes our intestines or winding sewer system leading to the entrance or our first chakra? These sick people in this Bible passage could then be people who were constipated…whose bowels or sewer system was clogged or not moving, and they were ill because of this. Their internal sewers were backed up and/or stopped up.  The bowels or sewer system had to be stirred or Roto-Rooted® and when things began moving again the people were made well from whatever disease they were afflicted with. The toxins and waste products were released, so these people’s health returned.   Here in the West it has only been the last five years that an increasing effort has been made to understand the role of intestinal micro-biota in health and disease. So, my question to you is, does green tea move or stir the intestinal sewage waters to get them moving again?

You asked me if I do understand what is meant by the “center of a river?” “Can you draw a line from Lourdes and Grenoble in Europe, to Jerusalem in the Hebrew Bible, and the “Sangama” river in India, to the center of the Hangang River in Seoul, South Korea upon the earth or globe in your mind? What is the one common factor having to do with each location, and what is at the core of these relationships between these locations?”

The “heart center” of this urn or vase you present is the Middle Countries of Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan. Actually, this would be the entire Middle East. In order for these countries to heal they must drink green tea made from the “center of a river” as did the King in your story. However, the “heart center” of this geographical and topographical urn or “basin” is mostly dry, arid desert. There is little “Living Water” found here. This region is in dire need of the contents found within Kuan Yin’s urn . . . . the “Well of Life,” or the “Living Water.”  As the story of the Samaritan woman who goes to Jacob’s well, those who cling to the Old Covenant ways and beliefs are drying up, like the Red Sea. Again, the Christ is the Wisdom of God and gives us the living water that bestows eternal life, but it is Kuan Yin who came prior to both the Old Covenant and the New Covenant. She carries eternal life as all life comes from her. She is the Living Life of Long Forgotten Wisdom . . . I sense a new, possibly “Rainbow” Covenant emerging here.  This is the “best magic water for Green Tea,” or “Gang sim su.”

As for the bird locked within a transparent glass bottle, you ask how will and can you take a bird out of the bottle without breaking it? I say I do not know. Ask the bird.

Virtual “Vacation” to Grenoble

John Paul [J. Young Bu]:

This is the first in a series of virtual “Vacation Trips” from our book writing to sites of interest around the world. Originally I had prepared another place for our first “vacation” trip, but your recent dream makes me want to change the order of priority. In many cases, dreams are not solely our subconscious mind but also are certain signs of a much deeper, upper spiritual sixth sense world. In the Bible too, we have many cases from Joseph, the Prime Minister of Egypt (Genesis 37:5), to Jacob, Daniel, Solomon (2 Chronicles 1:7), Joseph as the father of Jesus, and St. Peter, etc.; so many!

In the Asian cultures of China, Japan and Korea, dreams also have a fundamental basis in everyday life even to ordinary people, from the early time before a baby is born. In many cases and in the legends of heroes, kings and great prophets, “Tae-mong” (胎夢), the dreams a mother has had during her pregnancy or birth of a great baby destined to become a benefit to all of humanity is supposed to be one of the main stories or signs from God and the angels. Even today in a formal interview with a Lotto winner by the media or journalists who cover these stories, many witnesses are saying that they saw in dreams mainly “parents or family in heaven” or a “grandmother and grandfather” or “an old man or woman like an angel with white hair and wearing white clothing,” etc., before the lotto jackpot winner is announced.

As for an interpretation of the subconscious meaning of your dream, that is personal and I will explain further in a personal DM between us, but the meaning of “Grenoble” as a topic of this post is important to our general readers who will be reading our book when it is completed so I feel it is important to make an independent writing here too.

Grenoble is a very important place in Europe according to Yoda’s Five-Elemental Analysis also, as it is similar to Feng Shui (風水) as an eastern philosophy, and furthermore it means a very unique and special sacred place, even from the viewpoint of and when compared to India as the homeland of yoga. I believe this is more than only a coincidence as I research Yoda’s next virtual “vacation” spot in Europe for my next blog post here, although the fact is without your apparent knowing, Grenoble appeared in your dream. These types of mysterious experiences are called “telepathic resonance phenomena” when, for example, Zen practitioners have met usually in deep meditations in Zen, and begin thinking of each other over a long distance such as ours with about half the Earth and the Pacific Ocean between us. It must be a sign from your soul of the prophet leading you to that dream, as you said.

Okay. Let’s dig into more details now. First of all, Grenoble is the place that has many common factors with Lourdes. For you readers here who have already read about Holy Mother Mary’s role in Lourdes you must be already familiar with and clear about the common factors in these two places. Grenoble is simply a city of mountains and a city located in the French Alps.  It is a city in southeastern France located at the foot of the French Alps where the river Drac joins the Isere. It is located in the Rhone-Alps region, and the proximity of the mountains has led to the city being known as the “Capital of the Alps.” Briefly speaking, it is a kind of brother place with regard to Lourdes; a sort of expanded city edition of Lourdes with the same DNA. And, if Yoda Sifu and I open the doors to Yoda’s Castle with regard to Europe, Grenoble is to be a Top 10 contender, along with Lourdes; and from many more locations, the third place contenders will be revealed in this blog and book.

In addition, Grenoble has a good well with fresh water from the Roman era, would be a good shelter until the end of all wars that might break out; and an excellent place to live until the end of the world. If Our Lady of Lourdes should express herself here in Grenoble as in her next appearance or apparition, it is very “natural” and “matter of course” by Yoda’s analysis, and also using the Feng Shui method. By this I am referring to the French Alps behind Grenoble which according to Feng Shui (風水) experts is called Ju-san (主山), meaning the spine or backbone of Grenoble. In the front we have a good liver in the shape of the letter Y, meaning the crossing of two rivers or confluence shape. All of these topographical conditions indicate that Grenoble is a very good Myeong-Dang(明堂), typical “womb” shaped point in Feng Shui.

Confluence shape found in the crossing of two rivers is one more very fatal concept in Yoda’s Five Elemental Analysis rather than the mountain factor. This is so-called “Doo-mul-moeri두물머리” in Korean, meaning the place with a head or rock shaped mount at the confluence point where two rivers meet. In India “Sangama” is the Sanskrit word for confluence. This “Sangama” or “Sangam,” the point of confluence, is a sacred place for Hindus. A bath here is said to wash away all of one’s sins and even that one becomes free from the cycle of death and rebirth. Here, reading between the lines of the above paragraphs hides the biggest ancient secret we are all seeking. Disciple, do you see it?

In modern geographical science too, many scientists have discovered and found environmental backgrounds such as rich fishing grounds and points formed around the confluence, where it is good for all water creatures that live there. But, it is only a level of simple paralleling lists of showing phenomenon in confluence.

Why does this occur? Why do we have ancient people living in the Canaan Belt and even modern Hindus who believe that crossing “moving water” has such a divine power to wash all sins away and even to free one from the cycle of death and rebirth, even “Karma?” Why is Grenoble similar to Lourdes, and why is Lourdes close to being the same as “Sangama” in India, or even to other holy places found in the Hebrew Bible?

Today, Yoda Sifu’s neo-geographical liberalism, and at the same time also anatomical and theological interdisciplinary liberalism class in the 21st Century, exists beyond time and space.

And, to be continued . . .

“We people of humanity living upon this earth who is similar to us in our bodily form, also having a spine, bones, flesh and muscle, even blood and tears,again, all is one, one is in all, humanity is in the Earth, and the Earth is in humanity.” Disciple, did you get it, this truth? If you understand this it will be the turning point within your body, disease, even in your life itself, just like in a Holy “Sangama.”

“After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches. In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water. For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.” (John 5: 1~4 KJV)

Mary Burgess:

Thank you for taking us all on such a beautiful and informative virtual “Vacation Trip” to the beautiful French Alps city of Grenoble! I have been there three times visiting friends who lived there when I was living in Europe. It is a special place and has its own unique energy.  And, thank you for addressing the meaning of my dream.

You mention moving water and holy water with healing and spiritual properties and ask the question “why?” I don’t have all of the answers but may have a few for you.

With regard to moving water, rapidly moving water, such as in a mountain stream or large river, tends to contain a lot of dissolved oxygen, whereas stagnant water contains less. Bacteria in water can consume oxygen as organic matter decays. Therefore, excess organic material in lakes and rivers can cause an oxygen-deficient situation that can then cause a water body (and human body) “to die.”

At Lourdes, France Bernadette Soubirous was told by the Marian apparition Our Lady of Lourdes, to “drink at the spring and wash in it.”  Water has become a focus of devotion to the Virgin Mary at Lourdes, although never formally encouraged by the Church.  And yet, many people have claimed to have been cured by drinking or bathing in this special water. By the way, I understand that the Lourdes authorities provide it free of charge to anyone asking for it.

A scientific explanation or analysis with regard to the healing properties of the Lourdes water was commissioned by Mayor Anselme Lacadé of Lourdes in 1858. This analysis was conducted by a professor in Toulouse, who came to the conclusion that the water was potable and that it contained the following: oxygen, nitrogen, carbonic acid, carbonates of lime and magnesia, a trace of carbonate of iron, an alkaline carbonate or silicate, chlorides of potassium and sodium, traces of sulphates of potassium and soda, traces of ammonia, and traces of iodine. Now, that is quite some water! Basically, the water is quite pure and inert.

But, the water alone is not causing or contributing to the healings witnessed and experienced by so many people who visit there. Bernadette said, “One must have faith and pray; the water will have no virtue without faith.”

So, are not the ancient people living in the Canaan Belt and the modern Hindus who believe that crossing “moving water” has such a divine power to wash all sins away and more, people of strong faith and prayer?

“Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” (NIV Mark 11:24)

Is this not what Our Lady of Lourdes is telling us?

With regard to confluence shape found in the crossing of two rivers, you say that this is called “Doo-mul-moeri 두물머리” in Korean, and means “…the place with a head or rock shaped mount at the confluence point where two rivers meet.” Wouldn’t this be the crowning or new birthing point from the womb shaped topographical conditions? Can this be the ancient secret we are all seeking? To be washed clean and born again? Is this then why the point of confluence is a sacred place for Hindus?

Since the earth is similar to us in our bodily form, meaning the earth also has a spine, bones, flesh and muscle, and even blood and tears, is Yoda then asking when he says, “All is one, one is in all, humanity is in the Earth, and the Earth is in humanity” if we see that when we take care of the Earth and see she remains in balance and harmony, then by eating from her bounty of naturally provided foods and drinking and bathing in her pure, mineral rich water, we also remain healthy and in balance?
