Trees and Arches -
Transforming Reality

When I posted the image below of the trees forming arches connected to the wedding, I had no idea Kate had requested trees for Westminister Abbey. When she walks down the aisle, she will be surrounded by an avenue of trees. Royal wedding: Trees and flowers transform abbey   BBC - April 28, 2010

The Royal Wedding will take place at ... Westminster Abbey a large, mainly Gothic church, in Westminster, London, located just to the west of the Palace of Westminster. It is the traditional place of coronation and burial site for English, later British and later still (and currently) monarchs of the Commonwealth Realms. The abbey is a Royal Peculiar and briefly held the status of a cathedral from 1546 to 1556.

Tragic romance eclipses 2nd-to-last shuttle flight   AP - April 25, 2011

Looking back on the horror of that Saturday in January, this seems miraculous today: that Mark Kelly would indeed command the next-to-last space shuttle flight and that his wounded wife, Gabrielle Giffords, would be here in Florida watching. On a day fit for princes and princesses - Britain's Prince William will wed Kate Middleton that morning - Endeavour's scheduled 3:47 p.m. blastoff is the big draw for tourists and residents on Florida's Space Coast.

Balance Scales

In what is considered End Times by many people today, the scales of balance allegedly come into play -- the fate of each soul decided. This is all mythology and religious doctrine (same), with a sprinkle of truth as governments around the world fall, and people seek freedom. It's all collapsing, for better or worse, richer or poorer, as we try to make sense of our personal hologram of experience.

The economy takes center stage always as money is power and drives our simulation (machine).

In what would seem like a witch hunt of sorts, the SEC and Justice Department are cleaning house - and more to the point collecting millions of dollars from corrupt businessmen who have become icons in the business world. As with the Mafia (various countries) - the push is on to put these men away. In recent months most have gone to jail and rightly so.

Many are clients, or relatives of clients, who were the fat cats we all like to see taken down for an endless number of reasons, often because they defrauded us. Though I have never invested with any of them, I enjoy their take on reality based on their programming. It's bipolar mixed with delusions of grandeur. To date I have told them all they are going to jail for one reason or another with the expected heavy fines - and I was right. Most knew they were going away, but for how long and how would it affect their families (all are family men).

About Bernard Madoff -- I don't know him personally, but a close friend knew Madoff's son Mark who committed suicide in 2010 on the second anniversary of his father's arrest.

One way or another everything comes back to me as I sit here at the foot of the bridge and destiny unravels.

Raj Rajaratnam - Reflections of Truth

Raj Rajaratnam is a Sri Lankan-born American who founded the Galleon Group, a New York-based hedge fund management firm. On October 16, 2009 he was arrested by the FBI on allegations of insider trading, which also caused the Galleon Group to close. His attorney indicated that Mr. Rajaratnam will plead not guilty and fight the charges of insider trading in court. He is currently on trial in U.S. vs. Rajaratnam in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.

The jury went to deliberations on Monday. Its decision comes down to answering a deceptively simple question: Has the government proved beyond a reasonable doubt that Mr. Rajaratnam traded on material nonpublic information dispensed to him by tippers in breach of their fiduciary duty?

Unlike the clients who I knew were all guilty as charged, there is something different about Raj that makes me want to say that he will not go to jail, yet the evidence is stacked against him, the SEC wants money, the Justice department needs this win, so things will not go well. Justice is not always served.

Okay ... okay ... I know what you're thinking: No one can make that much money without insider trading, and you are right, yet there is something about this man's energies that I connected with.

I read about Raj's trial the day it started, then forgot about him as so much else was going on in the world. Monday, after I finished my morning clients, Raj came to mind so strongly I did a google news search and there were the updates of the trial going to deliberation (just after Mercury Retrograde ended on April 23).

A remote view to the jury room showed me that nothing would be decided on Monday, each member of the jury standing firm on what they believe. Today it begins again. The jury will review the evidence and the game will continue as the country watches and waits - especially those who like to play the games of Wall Street. Good luck Raj!

After the trial is over, will there be an appeal? Will that take time and bring us to the end of the program? Interesting ...

Rajaratnam Trial: The Long Odds of an Acquittal for Hedge Fund Millionaire   HedgeCo.Net - April 26, 2011

Although there was no conclusion on the first day of deliberation, some are quick to tally the long odds of an acquittal for Rajaratnam, who faces serious prison time for the 14 criminal counts against him.

The 5 Things You Need To Know About The Raj Trial Right Now   Business Insider - April 26, 2011

Now that Raj Rajaratnam's fate is in the hands of the jury, there are a maximum of a few days before we find out what happens. Our best estimate: He's convicted today or tomorrow. So for those who abstained from the daily dose of Raj trial to-ing and fro-ing, here's what you need to know to understand the case.

The Royal Wedding

Kate and William: I'm not sure if you are interested in the royal wedding, but I've been watching events on TV as time permits. What I embrace most about the entire experience is the positive energy I get from Kate. She represents what I would like for every women on the planet - not to be a princess per se, but to be healthy in body, mind and soul. This is a fairy tale story in which I love the prince and princess ho live happily ever after. They started as friends in university, became lovers and friends, then lived together. That's how it should be done. Kate and William will be an amazing couple to follow.

Mansions: Have you ever been in a mansion? I have friends and clients who live that lifestyle. Earlier this month I visited a friend's 15,000 sq. foot mansion in NJ and loved it. You never stop renovating a mansion and its property ... it just keeps going. Mansion lifestyle is really cool - just not for me. They say home is where your heart is and I would agree. I love the openness of my 1,000 sq. foot apartment, the location, the energy portals, and the commanding view. (I even got to see the plane hit Tower Two on 9/11.)

Palaces: Monday morning the Today Show featured a tour of Kensington Palace where Prince William grew up, so I decided to incorporate that into my blog.

Kensington Palace is a royal residence set in Kensington Gardens in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea in London, England. It has been a residence of the British Royal Family since the 17th century. Today, the State Rooms are open to the public and managed by the independent charity Historic Royal Palaces; a nonprofit organization that does not receive public funds. The offices and private accommodation areas of the Palace remain the responsibility of the Royal Household and are maintained by the Royal Household Property Section.

It was the official residence of Diana, Princess of Wales (until her death in 1997), of Princess Margaret (until her death in 2002) and of Princess Alice (until her death in 2004). Today it is the official residence of The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke and Duchess of Kent and Prince and Princess Michael of Kent. Kensington Palace is also used on an unofficial basis by Prince Harry, as well as his cousin Zara Phillips.

Chernobyl Disaster The Chernobyl disaster was a nuclear accident that occurred on April 26, 1986 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the Ukrainian SSR (now Ukraine). An explosion and fire released large quantities of radioactive contamination into the atmosphere, which spread over much of Western Russia and Europe. It is considered the worst nuclear power plant accident in history, and is one of only two classified as a level 7 event on the International Nuclear Event Scale (the other being the Fukushima I nuclear incident). The battle to contain the contamination and avert a greater catastrophe ultimately involved over 500,000 workers and cost an estimated 18 billion rubles, crippling the Soviet economy.

The disaster began during a systems test on 26 April 1986 at reactor number four of the Chernobyl plant, which is near the town of Pripyat. There was a sudden power output surge, and when an emergency shutdown was attempted, a more extreme spike in power output occurred, which led to a reactor vessel rupture and a series of explosions.

Thutmose III ascends to the throne of Egypt

Thutmose III (meaning "Thoth is born") was the 6th Pharaoh of the Eighteenth Dynasty. During the first twenty-two years of his reign, he was co-regent with his stepmother and aunt, Hatshepsut. After her death and his later rise to being the pharaoh of the kingdom, he created the largest empire Egypt had ever seen. Officially, Thutmose III ruled Egypt for almost fifty-four years - from April 24, 1479 BC to March 11, 1425 BC; however, this includes the twenty-two years he was co-regent to Hatshepsut. He was buried in the Valley of the Kings.

Nile River Delta

Nile river delta at night   PhysOrg - April 21, 2011

One of the fascinating aspects of viewing Earth at night is how well the lights show the distribution of people. In this view of Egypt, the population is shown to be almost completely concentrated along the Nile Valley, just a small percentage of the country¹s land area.


The Nile River Delta is the delta formed in Northern Egypt (Lower Egypt) where the Nile River spreads out and drains into the Mediterranean Sea. It is one of the world's largest river deltas - from Alexandria in the west to Port Said in the east, it covers some 240 km of Mediterranean coastline and is a rich agricultural region. From north to south the delta is approximately 160 km in length. The Delta begins slightly down-river from Cairo.

People have lived in the Nile Delta region for thousands of years, and it has been intensively farmed for at least five thousand years. The Nile River used to flood on an annual basis, but this ended with the construction of the Aswan Dam. Records from ancient times (Pliny the Elder) show that the delta had seven distributaries: (from east to west) the Pelusiac, the Tanitic, the Mendesian, the Phatnitic, the Sebennytic, the Bolbitine, and the Canopic. There are now only two main branches, due to flood control, silting and changing relief: The Damietta to the east and the Rosetta on the western part of the delta. The Rosetta Stone was found in the Nile Delta in 1799 in the port city of Rosetta. The delta was a major constituent of Lower Egypt. The Biblical Land of Goshen was located in a small area on the west bank of the Pelusiac distributary. There are many archaeological sites in and around the Nile Delta.

Good Friday

Good Friday is the Friday before Easter or Pascha. It commemorates the crucifixion and death of Jesus at Calvary. Good Friday is a holy day observed by Christians. Special prayer services are often held on this day with readings from the Gospel giving accounts of the events leading up to the crucifixion. Mainstream Christian churches view Christ's crucifixion as a voluntary and vicarious act, and one by which, along with resurrection on the third day, death itself was conquered.
