A New Year’s Eve message of the heart…

It seems that it has been a truly challenging year for many, locally and globally. I most certainly went through a lot of pain, self-searching, self-healing and a process, which came from a true desire to clarify many aspects of my life and my work.
It was not just this last year but also many years in the past when I looked for the traces of the mysteries in hidden books in vanished cities, forgotten monasteries and available libraries. I collected, copied and studied banned, often damaged books.
I discovered that there is a reverse side to a face, and that an entire life cannot be found in books, as you already know.

I sacrificed my life, strongly believing that my salvation will come through my cognition of the world.
I lost everything…it is true… and I remained alone. But the little I know, I‘d like to share it with you.

There is no ‘secret book of answers’. There is a secret book in each man’s heart. We all carry a part of the ‘secret book’ at the bottom of our hearts, but rare are those who can read it and therefore it should be preserved at any price…
The ‘secret book’ is inscribed in the heart of every man. One need only be awake to read the divine signs.

Cognition as you know it is always of a dual nature. There is morning and evening, day and night, shadow and light…average and perfection. The path you take only depends on you. Cognition is joy, but the path leads you to it here on Earth … is a long lasting pain.

True search brings answers you might not like to hear, but when you step on this path with devotion you will find what you need to know at that particular time of your life.
On this path the tapestry of your true life will unfold slowly and gradually. Patience is one of the keys and also keen observation without any judgement and by discarding of everything what you were previously taught. Our institutionalised mind from early childhood will want you to obey… don’t give in to it! Your ego will want to ‘protect’ you from true knowledge and from finding your authentic self. Don’t give in to it!

Never be afraid to be your own 'prophet' your own master!
May the natural forces of health and well-being which Petö taught us about and which he utilised in his work guide you and protect you in this New Decade’s of humanity.


Ps. please also read one of my previous postings to understand that posting better and for more clarification. The two postings are related and Pushkin summed it up all, much better than I could.

Once in a Blue Moon…

‘I wonder if you are interested in the moon?
If you are, you may already know that something unusual is happening tonight.
Scientists say a blue moon is exactly what we will see in the skies this New Year's Eve.
This doesn't mean we will see a 'bluey' glow over the moon, the term "blue moon" simply means something very rare and refers to the second full moon in any one calendar month.
Something that hasn't happened on a New Year's Eve for nearly 20 years and won't happen again until 2028.
On this New Year’s Eve there will be a full moon, a lunar eclipse and also a blue moon.

Some believes that "This is a vitally important time for all of us to empower what we want to co create in our individual lives and on this planet. Not only will our hopes, dreams, visions and Divine Intentions be expanded a thousand times, they will be exponentially expanded by the tremendous influx of Light we will experience on this sacred day".
This is a time for letting go of the old and bringing in the new. This may mean an emotional end to the year, but allow it to happen and flow; it's all part of the healing process.'S Stone

"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you... Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." -- John 14:27

The Prophet (Prorok)

Burdened by my soul's thirst

I dragged myself through a dreadful waste to

a crossroad where, six-winged, a seraph touched

my open eyes with dream-light fingers -

and they opened to prophecy like a startled eagle.

Again it touched, my ears, and they were filled

with ringings and roars: I heard heaven's shuddering,

the flight of angels in the rocky heights;

heard monsters pressing through the sea-deep,

heard the vine quickening in the valley.

Over my mouth it bent,

tore out my tongue so false, so prone to gossip

and deceit, and with its bloody right

implanted in my lifeless mouth

the serpent's knowing tongue.

At last with a sword it clove my chest,

plucked the faint heart out and thrust

a flaming coal into my open breast.

Like carrion flesh I lay in that waste

until God's own voice called out:

"Rise up now, prophet!

See this all, and understand!

Be filled with My Will, and so

Bear across the land and sea

Words to light again the fire

In every human heart!"

A. S. Pushkin, 1826


Духовной жаждою томим,
В пустыне мрачной я влачился, -
И шестикрылый серафим
На перепутье мне явился.
Перстами легкими как сон
Моих зениц коснулся он.
Отверзлись вещие зеницы,
Как у испуганной орлицы.
Моих ушей коснулся он, -
И их наполнил шум и звон:
И внял я неба содроганье,
И горний ангелов полет,
И гад морских подводный ход,
И дольней лозы прозябанье.
И он к устам моим приник,
И вырвал грешный мой язык,
И празднословный и лукавый,
И жало мудрыя змеи
В уста замершие мои
Вложил десницею кровавой.
И он мне грудь рассек мечом,
И сердце трепетное вынул,
И угль, пылающий огнем,
Во грудь отверстую водвинул.
Как труп в пустыне я лежал,
И бога глас ко мне воззвал:
"Восстань, пророк, и виждь, и внемли,
Исполнись волею моей,
И, обходя моря и земли,
Глаголом жги сердца людей".

Have you ever stopped to think about this world we live in?

'Isn't it a beautiful place?
Don't you think that we often forget about that?
We take it for granted that it is there.
But will it always be?

Take care of it...

Have a paceful day...' By Edd

People with disabilities deserve respect...and every opportunity

"It is a lonely existence to be a child with a disability which no-one can see or understand, you exasperate your teachers, you disappoint your parents, and worst of all you know that you are not just stupid."
-- Susan Hampshire

But let’s go further... if one is a child or an adult with a visible disability one is still precious, unique, and lovable and has much to live for and to contribute to the world.

"Disability is a matter of perception. If you can do just one thing well, you're needed by someone."
-- Martina Navratilova

If you are looking for some adventures and fun in the snow during the winter holidays

For everyone both with and without disabilities MAD MAX SKIBIKE TANDEMM.
When I received an e-mail from Stalmach in May they promised that for the winter season 2009/2010 they will develop a special therapy skibike for people whose lives are affected by cerebral palsy! I couldn't find any further information about this promise, but one of our boys enjoyed at first a rather scary, but soon a very enjoyable and an exhilaratingly fabulous experience using one of the already existing Mad Max Skibike Tandemm.
So I guess it is worth to give it a try.

Conductive Education Petö Furniture

I stumbled upon a website, which was published on 22nd October 2009 offering original Petö furniture. I thought that my readers might be interested to know about it.

Quote from the site:

“ This furniture was originally from Hungary and still bears the motto of the world famous Petö Institute it was used for rehabilitation of children with cerebral palsy.

There are many items, approximately 200, which include plinths of varying heights, ladder backed chairs, small chairs, stool boxes, special chairs, mobiles, foot boxes, wooden wedges etc.

These items would be more than sufficient for a small school or new group setting out, the original value of this equipment new was £10-£25000.

It can be collected or delivery can be arranged at extra cost anywhere in Europe.

This furniture is intended to be used with the method of Conductive Education and can be used in the rehabilitation of cerebral palsy children.”

There is no information about where the furniture is at the moment, but at the bottom of each page there is a lovely quotation from William A. Foster:

‘Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skilful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives.’

If you know anything about this new venture please let us know.

Every Disabled Child Matters

"Disabled Children’s Manifesto for Change

Every Disabled Child Matters Policy Recommendations
Disabled children and young people have made their priorities for the next election clear
in the Disabled Children’s Manifesto for Change.
The Every Disabled Child Matters campaign has put together this paper to recommend policies that your party might create to address these priorities.
Disabled children have set the following challenge to the next Government:
• Make people understand and respect disabled young people and children.
• Support us to take part in our communities, doing the things that all other children and young people do.
• Make a commitment that you will make sure the services we use can support us to live ordinary lives.
• Help us to get the education, jobs and training we want.

Every Disabled Child Matters priority recommendations Party Election Manifesto Commitment:
Every political party should include a commitment in their party manifesto to ‘ensure that services meet the additional needs of disabled children and their families’.
This should include specific commitments to:

• Sustain investment in improving services that meet the additional needs of disabled
children and their families
• Improve social mobility for disabled children and their families
• Embed the rights of disabled children in policy and legislation
Respect: The next government must ensure that health, education, leisure and social
care professionals receive training on working with disabled children and young people.
We also want the forthcoming Equality Bill to put pressure on public bodies to address
discrimination against disabled children and young people.

Community: The next government has to invest in accessible and inclusive participation structures, so that disabled children and young people can enjoy the same opportunities as their peers. We want forums for disabled children and young people to influence issues around disability.
Education and training: The next government needs to push schools, colleges and apprenticeship schemes to promote opportunities for disabled children and young people.
By doing this the disproportionate number of disabled young people who are NEET will be addressed.
Recommendations in detail
Disabled children asked you:

• We want the next Government to make sure all disabled people are full members of society and can take part alongside everyone else.
• We want the next Government to ensure services promote equality for disabled children and young people.
• We want policies and laws to include disabled children and young people, so they can do the same things as other people.
Every Disabled Child Matters recommendations
All parties should commit to embedding the rights of disabled children and their families throughout all relevant Government policy and legislation.
The next Government should proactively promote inclusion and equality for disabled
children and young people, with a specific focus on ensuring that mainstream services
meet their needs.
In order to do this, they should commit to ensuring that the forthcoming Public Sector Equality Duty requires public bodies to provide specific information on how they are proactively addressing discrimination against disabled children and young people.
The next government must require sector skills agencies to ensure that early years and
childcare, education, health, welfare and social care professionals receive training, and
are continually assessed, on the way they work with disabled children and young people
and the way they proactively promote an inclusive approach to the services they deliver.
We would welcome commitments to ensure that sector skills agencies develop common
core competency frameworks and that every statutory Children’s Trust Board will be
required to use when creating a joint training strategy..."
