Winds of Change

Ultimately the world is about to change because it needs to move forward spiritually, mentally and emotionally. Anything on an individual or world level that does not respond to the signs of this transit and the Universe will be “dissolved” by the influence of Neptune over the next 13 years. Stagnation, oppression, corruption, greed in any form will find it hard to survive. Transformation of existing business and banking structure is inevitable, as the focus shifts to the suffering of humanity and those less fortunate, in conjunction with a greater need for spirituality. It is therefore important to pay attention to the signs in one’s own life of where change needs to happen, internally or externally, so that there is consistent smooth movement forward with the Universe, individually and on a mass level, otherwise the outcome may not be so pleasant. Dealing with reality and not falling into delusion is another issue to be aware of as the Neptune in Pisces transit will “dissolve” this over time. For those that have been “hidden” in the background, with something worthwhile to share with the others and the world, this is their time to be recognized and be of service to humanity, from a perspective of having a desire and willingness to help others. To affirm one’s ability to care about the less fortunate is the challenge. Therefore, if this affirmation as follows can be remembered by at least some: “To the degree I see another’s worthiness of prosperity, I too am prosperous. Another’s need is my command; my needs are already the command of the Infinite.” These are the people that will benefit most in the years to come and are likely to survive the “winds of change.” They will come to realize and experience their true purpose in life

Greeks refuse plan for German bailout Commissioner


Greek officials have reacted angrily to a leaked German proposal for an EU budget commissioner with veto powers over Greek taxes and spending.
The Greek government said it must remain in control of its own budget.
The European Commission says it wants to reinforce its monitoring of Greek finances, but Greece should retain sovereign control.
Meanwhile, Greece and its private investors are close to a deal which will pave the way for a second bailout.
Negotiators say a tentative agreement could be finalised next week.
Greece must reach agreement in the next few days in order to receive the next tranche of funds from its first bailout.
It needs the money to pay off a significant number of bondholders whose bonds mature in March. Without the bailout funds, Greece could be forced into an uncontrolled default from the euro.
"We must do everything that will restrict the recession and will begin the cycle of growth. The coming days will determine the coming decade," Finance Minister Evangelis Venizelos told reporters as the talks broke up on Saturday.
The austerity measures have angered many Greeks. In Athens on Friday, protesters tried to blockade inspectors from the "troika" of institutional lenders - the EU, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the European Central Bank (ECB) - into their hotel.
Elections in Greece are due to take place in April

Karmic soulmates

        Quoted from Discovering your Soul Mission by Linda Brady and Evan St. Lifer
"All the relationships we enter into - including those involving soulmates - are karmic. By initiating a relationship, we set in motion a soul contract with that soul to learn a lesson and resolve an issue from a previous life. A soul mate represents a karmic relationship that we have resolved: a deep conflict that has been settled, an obligation that has been fulfilled, and love that has replaced fear and anger.

We recognize a soulmate by the supreme level of comfort and security we feel with that person. That doesn't mean that there aren't issues that remain to be ironed out. Rather, it means we know intuitively that we can resolve issues with our soul mate without losing his or her love and respect.

When feelings of abandonment and betrayal arise with a soulmate, they do not last. Once soulmates achieve an ultimate level of symbiosis and serenity with each other, it remains forever."

What this means is that every karmic relationship we have... has the potential to become a soulmate. Now - potential doesn't mean reality. Not everyone is ready at the same time to tackle the same problems. We've all experienced issues of timing and forgiveness. But when both people are committed to working it out... it can be done. 

"Our soulmate is someone who shares our deepest longings, our sense of direction. When we're two balloons, and together our direction is up, chances are we've found the right person." – Richard Bach, author ofJonathan Livingston Seagull

"A soulmate is an ongoing connection with another individual that the soul picks up again in various times and places over lifetimes. We are attracted to another person at a soul level not because that person is our unique complement, but because by being with that individual, we are somehow provided with an impetus to become whole ourselves."
– Edgar Cayce, American Clairvoyant, from Edgar Cayce on Soul Mates by Kevin J. Todeschi

"A soulmate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks. When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are; we can be loved for who we are and not for who we're pretending to be. Each unveils the best part of the other. No matter what else goes wrong around us, with that one person we're safe in our own paradise. Our soulmate is the one who makes life come to life." – Richard Bach, author ofJonathan Livingston Seagull

"In any soul mate relationship, you will need to let go of the illusion that there is a perfect person waiting for you who will fulfill your every expectation and give your personality everything it desires once you are together. Do not expect your ideal soul mate to be someone who is always loving and easy to get along with, who agrees with everything you say or do, and who brings you a life of ease and comfort." – Sanaya Roman, Soul Love: Awakening Your Heart Centers

Πρώτη προβολή:1971.Η ζωή και η δράση του ήρωα του 21 Παπαφλέσσα κατά τον απελευθερωτικό αγώνα των Ελλήνων,έως και τη μάχη στο Μανιάκι που του στοίχισε τη ζωή...






Μετά την απελευθέρωση από τους Τούρκους ο Αστραπόγιαννος γυρίζει στο χωριό του. Το όνομα του έχει γίνει θρύλος και τα κατορθώματά του τραγούδια. Η κατάσταση που αντικρύζει τον γεμίζει πίκρα. Ο τσιφλικάς του χωριού έχει αντικαταστήσει τον Τούρκο Αγά και τυραννεί τους χωριανούς. Μια άγρια σύγκρουση ξεσπά μεταξύ των τσιφλικάδων και του Αστραπόγιαννου.




Ένας φουκαράς βιοπαλαιστής ο Θανάσης κάνει ένα σωρό δουλειές για να τα βγάλει πέρα. Κάποια στιγμή αποφασίζει να ανοίξει μαγαζί που θα νοικιάζει μηχανάκια. Όταν οι μηχανόβιοι της περιοχής τον ταλαιπωρούν και τον δημιουργούν προβλήματα, εκείνος θα μεταμορφωθεί σε καμικάζι για να τα βγάλει πέρα μαζί τους , παρέα με την θεότρελλη βοηθό του.

Eurovision 2012




Azerbaijan has been known as the Land Of Fire for a while now and the symbol of fire and flames is used extensively across the country. The people of Azerbaijan also take great pride in this association with fire.
"Since the dawn of time, mankind has come together around fire to communicate through the telling of stories, song and dance. The Eurovision Song Contest is where people come together to celebrate and communicate through song and dance," the creators explained the idea behind the theme art.
All of that can be seen visually in the theme art of the 2012 edition of Europe's favourite TV show

The world needs more dreamers

The World Needs More Dreamers

 Have you ever had a goal, dream or vision that you shared with someone only to be told all the different reasons that it would not be possible. Your friends and family probably mean well, but we want to encourage you to pursue those things that ignite your soul and spirit.
Today we share a message from John Maxwell that will shed light on why most dreams never take flight,

Most of us never see our  dreams come true. Instead of soaring through the clouds, our dreams languish  like a broken-down airplane confined to its hangar. Through life, I have come  to identify five common reasons why dreams don’t take flight.

1. We Have  Been Discouraged from Dreaming by Others

We have to pilot our own  dreams; we cannot entrust them to anyone else. People who aren’t following  their own dreams resent us pursuing ours. Such people feel inadequate when we  succeed, so they try to drag us down.

If we listen to external  voices, then we allow our dreams to be hijacked. At some point, other people will place limitations on us by doubting our abilities. When surrounded by the  turbulence of criticism, we have to grasp the controls tightly to keep from  being knocked off course.

2. We Are  Hindered by Past Disappointments and Hurts

In the movie Top Gun, Tom Cruise plays Maverick, a  young, talented, and cocky aviator who dreams of being the premier pilot in the  U.S. Navy. In the film’s opening scenes, Maverick showcases his flying ability  but also displays a knack for pushing the envelope with regard to safety.  Midway through the movie, Maverick’s characteristic aggression spells disaster.  His plane crashes, killing his best friend and co-pilot.

Although cleared of  wrongdoing, the painful memory of the accident haunts Maverick. He quits taking  risks and loses his edge. Struggling to regain his poise, he considers giving  up on his dream. Although the incident nearly wrecks Maverick’s career, he  eventually reaches within to find the strength to return to the sky.

Like Maverick, many of us  live with the memory of failure embedded in our psyche. Perhaps a business we started went broke, or we were fired from a position of leadership.  Disappointment is the gap that exists between expectation and reality, and all  of us have encountered that gap. Failure is a necessary and natural part of life, but if we’re going to attain our dreams, then, like Maverick, we have to  summon the courage to deal with past hurts.

3. We Fall  into the Habit of Settling for Average

Average is the norm for a  reason. Being exceptional demands extra effort, sustained inspiration, and  uncommon discipline. When we attempt to give flight to our dreams, we have to  overcome the weight of opposition. Like gravity, life’s circumstances  constantly pull on our dreams, tugging us down to mediocrity.

Most of us don’t pay the  price to overcome the opposition to our dreams. We may start out inspired, but  through time we fatigue. Although never intending to abandon our dreams, we  begin to make concessions here and there. Through time, our lives become  mundane, and our dreams slip away.

4. We Lack  the Confidence Needed to Pursue Our Dreams

Dreams are fragile. They  will be buffeted by assaults from all sides. As such, they must be supplied  with the extra strength of self-confidence.

In Amelia Earhart’s day,  women were not supposed to fly airplanes. If she had lacked self-assurance, she  never would have even attempted to be a pilot. Instead, Earhart confidently  chased after her dream, and she was rewarded with both fulfillment and fame.

5. We Lack the  Imagination to Dream

For thousands of years,  mankind traveled along the ground: by foot, by horse-and-buggy, by locomotive,  and eventually by automobile. Thanks to the dreams of Orville and Wilbur  Wright, we now hop across oceans in a matter of hours. The imaginative brothers  overcame ridicule and doubt to pioneer human flight, and the world has never  been the same.

Many of us play small  because we do not allow ourselves to dream. We trap ourselves in reality and  never dare to go beyond what we can see with our eyes. Imagination lifts us  beyond average by giving us a vision of life that surpasses what we are  experiencing currently.

Dreams infuse our spirit with energy and spur us on to  greatness.

So, what's your dream?

Have a great week unless you choose otherwise.

What other people think of you, is none of your business....



Solar Storm travels to earth


Following one of the longest and weakest periods of activity in many cycles, the Sun is brimming with activity again. In late January 2012, our nearest star offered a preview of what may be to come in the solar maximum of 2012–13. The storm has the potential to disrupt some communications and satellite systems and to bring auroras to high-latitude skies.
The images above show a solar flare as observed by the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) on NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) at 03:27, 03:42, and 04:12 Universal Time (Greenwich Time) on January 23. Note the brightening of the solar surface as gas was superheated and magnetically supercharged. By the third (right) image, a stream of solar material is seen flowing off into space above the hot spot, likely solar protons and a coronal mass ejection. Click on the enlarged images and movies for a wider view.
The high-latitude solar flare was measured as M8.7 in intensity, just below the most intense “X class” of flares. The eruption sent a stream of fast-moving, highly energetic protons toward Earth, provoking the most intense solar energetic particle storm—an S3 on NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center’s scale—since 2005.
The flare was accompanied by a coronal mass ejection (CME), a cloud of solar plasma that was ejected from the solar atmosphere in the direction of Earth. The CME was observed by the STEREO and SOHO spacecraft with an initial speed of more than 2,000 kilometers (1,400 miles) per second. It was estimated to reach Earth sometime on January 24 and Mars on January 25. NOAA forecasters were predicting a G2 geomagnetic storm, though a G3 was possible.
Solar flares and CMEs are not a danger to humans on Earth's surface, as the planet's magnetic field (magnetosphere) and atmosphere deflect and absorb the solar energy and particles. The sun storms can pose some risks to astronauts, and they can upset the electronics and transmissions on science, military, and communications satellites. Closer to Earth's surface, solar activity can cause disruptions of radio signals (particularly HF), provide a small dose of radiation to passengers on high-latitude flights, and provoke auroras (northern and southern lights).
The storm is impressive by recent standards, but nowhere near the maximum intensities often generated at the height of the solar cycle. “I would expect that we will see more storms like this one or even bigger as we get closer to solar maximum,” said Michael Hesse, chief of heliophysics at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center.
