The try 1….f3, 2. Kg1 Kg4, 3. Kh1 is fine for white.  It turns out that 1…g3, with kingside pawns captured, also goes to draw.   What else is there?  1…Kh5, 2. Kg2 a6, 3.?  (at bottom)

199.  The difficulties of the task are akin to those of polishing a diamond.  A hostile will must be diverted to the good just as a stream is directed to the mill.  But how many dams must the miller build before he can control the current!  A hand must possess strength and an eye vision to perceive new possibilities.         –Leaves of Morya’s Garden 1924

12-13-16    “ISIL terrorists are now trapped in Mosul.”…Special envoy McGurk said the coalition is generally seeing far fewer foreign fighters joining the group from outside Iraq and Syria.  He said the coalition continues to make strides against the terrorist group by degrading and destroying Islamic State supply chains, its ability to make money by selling oil, and its global media campaign.   http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/mcgurk-kicking-isis-out-of-mosul-will-take-as-long-as-it-takes/article/2609535?custom_click=rss

Mafia State at your service

12-13-16    “We had our meeting.  A list of about 15 people in Turkey was mentioned.  The Russian secret service wanted four people to be killed right away and they wanted it to be done simultaneously,” Eleman says.

“They had an enormous budget for this.  They offered $300,000 for each one killed.”

Eleman and his Chechen friend decided to warn the four intended victims, including Bukhari – who they met face-to-face – and an Uzbek opposition leader, Muhammad Salih.  Eleman and his friend then went to the police and told them what they had learned.

This was six months before Bukhari was killed, but it was only after his murder that police took action.  Muhammad Salih now lives under police protection in a secret location.  He rarely leaves his home, avoids routine, keeps his shutters closed and is a virtual prisoner in his country of refuge.

But what interest could Russia possibly have in organising the assassination of opponents of the Uzbek regime?  Mark Galeotti says that by “being a good friend to tyrants in the region” Moscow is able to maintain its authority.  “We see the FSB in particular having strong connections with its counterparts in countries such as Uzbekistan, but also Turkmenistan, Tajikistan and even Kazakhstan,” he says.   http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-38294204

The little people do not shape history unless some among them get the idea that the power of God is in their hands, that the ball is in their court, and that if they act, truly, nations and continents can be preserved for another day of grace, another day of freedom.  There is a time for sowing, a time to water, a time to watch the summer breezes and Sun, a time for harvest, a time for going into the seed within itself.

Understand the times and the seasons:  there is a time for the coming of the ascended masters and the avatar and the Divine Mother with us.  There is a time that is an interval of space where a civilization and a people must take that flame and demonstrate it.

There is a time when the dark ones move across the land and all are bowed down, and the trees also are moved by strong winds of dark desire and many of them are broken.  And there is a time for the coming of the Helper and the Comforter and the One who enlightens….

Increase then the mighty threefold flame and call for the union of Scandinavia.  And let that union produce–through hearts of light who are that union–a bulwark of freedom that can move south and encompass Europe, the Isles, and then move east.                              -Saint Germain:  12-2-1984 at Washington, D.C. via Messenger E C Prophet

Tamed now by the sophistry of civilization, the world rises to new disorders and like unto the children of Israel her people continue to worship the golden calf and run riot against the order of universal Law….

The peace of the Spirit is the reality of foreverness.  The people of this land must be caught up into the glories of spiritual reality; they must be taught the meaning of love and the exercise of the divine prerogative.  There are many who wait; there are many who must be led….Now the Son of man, the Universal Christ-Spirit, must be lifted up into full view that every eye may see him.  Error was made to be broken, bondage to be sundered and all things to be overcome.                          -Lord Ling:  Pearls of Wisdom 11:40

-Ananda (an embodiment of Ling) at Longmen, China
