There is a Chinese proverb which says: “May you live in interesting times”.
I think that pretty well sums it up.
In a few days’ time, on the winter solstice, the precession of the equinoxes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Axial_precession) comes back to zero after 25,772 years, the solar system will be aligned with the galactic center and the sun will move into Aquarius after having lingered in Pisces for 2.500 years (http://www.share-international.org/archives/Science-tech/sci_rrPisces2Aquarius.htm ). A lot of stuff to which we are fortunate to be witnesses. I remember that in the sixties we speculated about the image of the man pouring out the water over the earth (Aquarius). The idea was that the era of Pisces, which is the era of organized religion, was coming to an end, and true spirituality would be poured out over the human race.
A time to look forward to. A time to reflect. I will tell you what I will do.
I will put a lot of candles out on the solstice and reflect on the ‘New Age’.
It would be fun if a lot of you would do the same. Collective ‘intent’ for a better world.
Let us say 20.00 pm Italian time, which is 19.00 pm Greenwich time? Friday 21 December.
Hope many of you will ‘turn up’ at the ‘meeting’.
Gandhi said: “Be the change that you would like to see”.
In Newsletter nr. 4 I started to write about intent and non-locality.
Below is an article about elephants that I have already read some time ago.
It is a perfect example of non-local information (‘wireless communication’).
«HOW DID THEY KNOW?
SOMETHING IN THE UNIVERSE THAT IS MUCH GREATER AND DEEPER THAN HUMAN INTELLIGENCE.
THE ELEPHANTS JOURNEYED TO PAY THEIR RESPECTS, BUT HOW DID THEY KNOW?
Lawrence Anthony, a legend in South Africa and author of 3 books including the bestseller The Elephant Whisperer, bravely rescued wildlife and rehabilitated elephants all over the globe from human atrocities, including the courageous rescue of Baghdad Zoo animals during US invasion in 2003.
On March 7, 2012 Lawrence Anthony died. He is remembered and missed by his wife, 2 sons, 2 grandsons and numerous elephants. Two days after his passing, the wild elephants showed up at his home led by two large matriarchs. Separate wild herds arrived in droves to say goodbye to their beloved man-friend.
A total of 31 elephants patiently walked over 12 miles to get to his South African Home. Witnessing this spectacle, humans were obviously in awe not only because of the supreme intelligence and precise timing that these elephants sensed about Lawrence’s passing, but also because of the profound memory and emotion the beloved animals evoked in such an organized way: Walking slowly – for days – Making their way in a solemn one-by-one queue from their habitat to his house. So, how after Anthony’s death, did the reserve’s elephants — grazing miles away in distantparts of the park — know?
“A good man died suddenly,” says Rabbi Leila Gal Berner, Ph.D., “and from miles and miles away, two herds of elephants, sensing that they had lost a beloved human friend, moved in a solemn, almost ‘funereal’ procession to make a call on the bereaved family at the deceased man’s home.”
“If there ever were a time when we can truly sense the wondrous ‘interconnectedness of all
beings,’ it is when we reflect on the elephants of Thula Thula. A man’s heart’s stops, and
hundreds of elephants’ hearts are grieving. This man’s oh-so-abundantly loving heart offered
healing to these elephants, and now, they came to pay loving homage to their friend.”
Lawrence’s wife, Francoise, was especially touched, knowing that the elephants had not
been to his house prior to that day for well over 3 years! But yet they knew where they were going. The elephants obviously wanted to pay their deep respects, honoring their friend who’d
saved their lives – so much respect that they stayed for 2 days 2 nights without eating anything.
Then one morning, they left, making their long journey back.»

This a perfect example of non-locality, or non-local information.
How did the elephants know?
According to quantum physics, if two atoms in the universe ‘collide’, they will afterwards share the same information. Kind of like if one has a ‘head-ache’, after the collision both will have a ‘head ache’.
Since all the atoms in the universe have collided since the ‘Big Bang’, all atoms share the same ‘information’.
Thus human beings, made of the same atoms that are at large in the universe, share ALL information that is swirling around in the universe.
Also elephants. Also cats and dogs. Also donkeys and ponies. Also horses.
Last year November there was a series of quakes near the lake.
Cisco, my horse, bit me. Never done before or after.
A couple of days ago I woke up with ants crawling around in my plexus solaris. 7.3 quake in Japan.
I did not go to the animals that day, but before that, when there was the big quake in Italy in May, my little pony went into a colic. Verdict of the vet: ‘Stress colic’. Emilia is a hundred km from Lake Garda. Julio went into colic six hours before.
To come back to candles and intent for a better age, a ‘New Age’, if you want. Can we, on the solstice, collectively douse the universe with positive pictures? Can we connect with the universe for a better future? Can we connect with each other, sending out good wishes to all and sundry?
I think it will be worth-while.
Even though some of you are not members of the International Centered Yoga Association, this Newsletter has been sent to you nevertheless. Time to connect with everyone.
As the Chines say: ‘May you live in interesting times’.
With best wishes to all of you
