Idyllwild Mountain Center Blessings!

The days of going home is near, and we bless all the family who do care, and our Mountain Center need us there.  Protect the ones who devote their lives.  Protect the place where all survives, and find the way to show the day, how we can be the blessed free. 

Come home this day, my loving place.  Bless all we do, to protect this place, and while those who seek the way, let us be grateful for this day!  Come home my love, come home to near, the heart is inside of all the fears.  We keep the place we love to keep safe inside our hearts of belief. 

Teach all who gather everyone.  Teach them all to send love to those who hate.  Teach all those who don't know their way, to send clouds of better days.  When Communications leave their tracks, then all is forwards and not to last, but they do not understand the need, and the space to protect those who gift their lives in grace.

In a day, when we use petitions to sign, At and t will have much more to hide.  They will get more petitions to sign, because they use money to lead the way. And since they don't understand the need to protect the land, or protect the leaves (relatives), then we shall send them blessings too, because they need love more than the firefighters do. 

Let us all bless and bless this space, especially Doris who leads the way, for she is good hearted and asked for their needs, this is the Rainbow Warrior of Prophecy.  And thank you all Great Spirits above, to bring us home soon, for all the doves, and shall our hearts remember to bless, while others fight the illusion of threats.  To return the love to those who hate, is more righteous that man could think, for we are devoted servants, who know, that Blessings carry more weight than even snow (the crystalline stone river, because blessings provide the way into this eternal river of oneness upon the land).  

We shall return all the land to God, especially those who are devoted to her (Mother Earth).  And we bless the sky that leads the way, to pour her heart out and bring rain today!

Lamp Lighter

A Jew once asked the fifth Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Shalom Dov Ber:

Rebbe, what is a chassid?"

"A chassid is a lamplighter. The lamplighter walks the streets carrying a flame at the end of a stick. He knows that the flame is not his. And he goes from lamp to lamp to set them alight."

"What if the lamp is in a desert?"

"Then one must go and light it"

"And what if the lamp is at sea?"

"Then one must undress, dive into the sea, and go light the lamp.”

This means, no matter where you go, seek the light of God within! Upon the Red Road, the luminous world, we search the rolling hills. Upon the Blue Road, the numinous world, we search within the tears of yesterday (heart) that feed today, in the blue seas of you and me, in the sky, in the streams, we rejoice! Here where the red (giving) and blue (receiving) cross in our flowing blood is the luminous fire's light of the dream, the middle (freedom in soul flight) and way of wisdom (vision questor). Welcome home family!

Boiling Water With Stones

Storm (1969 - 2008) passed away on February 22, 2008 wilderness walk about!

Our ancestors used fire to cook their food, heat their homes, give light to the darkness, and keep the scary things away at night. It was tended and fed – like the other precious things of life – the children and the Gods. Today, we still use fire for all the same purposes. Today, that fire most often runs through copper wires. Though no longer the open fire of the past, it continues to feed us, light us and keep our fears at bay. Humans and fire – still we live and travel together on a shared path. (Steve Watts)

From microwaving popcorn to roasting potatoes around a car’s hot exhaust pipe, humans have developed a variety of cooking methods by which we render food safer, more digestible, and more palatable. Stone boiling is one of my favorite Stone Age (pardon the pun) methods. Some alternatives for boiling food are energy intensive and more difficult to prepare (rawhide bags, pottery). Stone boiling requires a fire, some rocks, and a coal-burned container.

I started experimenting with stone-boiling while living in Olympic National Park (WA State). I had heard that some types of rocks were better to use than others, but I couldn’t locate any information regarding which tended to crack (or explode!) and which are keepers for a lifetime. So here are the results of my very limited exploration on the subject at hand.

Let’s begin with the stone boiling contestants. From the nearest extinct volcanic pluton, let’s welcome Granite! Granite is relatively large-grained, which we think doesn’t bode well for this igneous rock.

Although most of this melange of cobbles started out as lowly depositional sand, these glassy rocks endured sweltering heat and enormous pressures in order to metamorphose into the beautiful Quartzites you see before you today! On a more serious note, there is some Quartz and other igneous rocks in here as well.

And coming all the way from the spreading Pacific Oceanic Ridge, taking 200 million years to get here, it’s Basalt! Fine-grained basalt has a good reputation for withstanding rapid heating and cooling amongst abos in the field.

Good luck to all of you!

Ahem. Now that I have that out of my system...

1.) Heating up the rocks for stone boiling...

2.) Got my coal-burned Western Red Cedar cooking vessel ready, in which I’ll test the hot rocks.

3.)Wooden tongs are quite useful in handling the heated stones. Notice the steam escaping from the bottom of the rock as it hits the lake.

Rocks relaxing in the “hot tub.” I subjected all rocks to at least five hot immersions (unless they broke before the fifth trial). Which will survive...which will crack under pressure?

p.s.—I love those tongs. Made from Yellow Cedar (Chamaecyparis nootkatensis)...lightweight, easy-to-carve...just the right width to afford a strong purchase on it when handling an awkwardly-shaped rock.

I’ve been told by a geology professor that water can infiltrate the interstitial spaces between the relatively-large quartz, feldspar and mica crystals and expand the rock when heated. To it’s credit, granite never sent shrapnel flying when it cracked.

Quartzite fared a little better, being smaller-grained and more homogenous throughout it’s structure. About 50% of these survived. I will note that when quartzite cracked, it sometimes exploded (but shards never traveled more than a foot or so away from the wooden bowl.

Basalt out-performed the other species of rock by far. Only about 5% of these cracked with use. A few years later, I still use these particular pieces of basalt. They show no signs of giving out. Incidentally, one can purchase smooth basalt cobbles in fancy home/yard furnishing stores.

After I get established in the San Gabriel Mountains of southern California this Fall, I look forward to testing the various rocks—gneiss, schist, talc, actinolite, pure quartz, feldspar, marble--found there. I’ll let you know how they work out for stone boiling....
