It was early in the morning after Pops completed his meditation. As he looked out over Brighton, he knew it was going to be a long day inside his small Tower Room on Perthshire Road. Pops worked until 9:30 p.m. last night, completing the final edits for his Academy of Peace website. It wasn't perfect, but what is? He was feeling that he could finish his WorldAGame.com website today, and the iplayeddemocracy.com by Friday, or sooner, which meant he could finally go out and start playing the game with the good folks in Boston. He paid for his Airbnb Tower Room until June 10th, so he was feeling more settled. He wouldn't have to be moving from place to face. He could focus on finding new friends in Boston. He would have his morning routine, giving himself until noon each day to finish writing the stories and then he could go out to play, and he always had the incentive that if he could finish early, he could leave his room earlier and begin making new friends. He wants to make as many friends as he can before leaving Boston in June because he and Kma had planned to leave increase in their wake and this is what they wanted for all their brothers and sisters, every single one of them, not only in Boston, but also in Prescott, and around the Planet.
Pops reflected on who could be the next Master Storyteller and it was an easy choice. He knew Kma would love his selection. He chose "The Greatest Showman." When they first went to watch it in a theater in Federal Way, Kma had to preface it for Pops, "I'm not sure if you're going to like it because it's a musical." Pops enjoyed it he and Kma have since watched it a few time since for inspiration. They would like to thank the writers, song writers, actors and production team for bringing something very alive.
Pops usually meditates at least for three hours a day. He calls it "34 me," or three for me as in three hours for me. This is the time where he worked through personal issues and then dreamed about working with the family. Today, he realized that things are going to speed up very fast and as things go forward, it is important that others understand their relationship to him.
First, Pops wanted to dedicate this story to his Mother and Father, who always told him to tell the truth, and who helped to finance the Master Storytellers. After his studies at the University, his travels around the world, and life experiences, he believes it is important that he share his version of truth because it will bring health, wealth and wisdom to many. He wishes to offend no one and to bring increase for all around the planet.
Dear People of Planet Earth,
Thank you for welcoming me back into The Family (of humans). I sincerely apologize for any trouble I may have caused over the thousands of years. I pray that you forgive me. By the same token, I want you to know that I hold nothing against you. If you did anything wrong to me, I forgive you. I am ready to move on. I don't know about you, but I am ready for big change. I will preface my thoughts with one quote by Einstein and another by Socrates, one that Nathan reminded me of yesterday.
First, Einstein is quoted as saying, "Whoever undertakes to set himself up as a judge of Truth and Knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods" and Socrates is quoted as saying, "I know that I am intelligent, because I know that I know nothing." In other words, I know that my version of truth is only my version and since I realize that, relatively speaking, I know next to nothing, my search, my sight, my vision and longing is to know the mysterious and the infinite because I have found that is where all the fun is.
When I was young, my father always used to say to me, "You're so bright, your mother calls you Sun." Sometimes I sit and imagine that I am a Sun and I have planets going around me and I get to bring warmth, love, and light to them. The first planet I shine on is my mother. I have only one mother in this life time and it is in this lifetime that I get to acknowledge and honor her. I shine on my one and only father, my one brother and my three sisters. I will shine light on my first wife. She is the mother of my one daughter, whom we called "Light," and my two sons. I have two grandmothers and two grandfathers and tons of grandparents prefaced by "Great." I have many aunts, uncles, and cousins, many of whom I don't know very well, but they are mine.
I would like to say that to all other women on planet Earth, you are like a sister to me. You are not my birth sisters but I hope you can let me consider you as my younger or older sister, or maybe just "sister." I hope for your well-being and I believe you hope for mine. You can consider me like a older or younger brother, and I hope an equal. I have a lot to learn about life and I hope I have the opportunity to learn more from you. Even to my Mother-in-Law, you are like a sister to me, of course a wiser sister who is also a great grandmother and the mother of my second wife, and so you hold a special place.
I would like to say that to all other men on planet Earth, your are like a brother to me. You are not my birth brother, but I hope you can let me consider you as my younger or older brother. I hope for your well-being, and I believe you hope for mine. I hope you can consider me like an older or younger brother, and as an equal. I have a lot to learn about life and I hope I have the opportunity to learn more from you.
I would like you to know that I have chosen Kimberly as my Queen. In her, I have seen Infinity, and I would like to spend the remainder of this lifetime with her. In other words, I'm hoping there will be no third wife. She is her own Sun and she has her own special planets orbiting her. I am one of her planets and I feel her light. Together we shine our light on others, thus the Master Storytellers. It is not about the two of us. It is about every person on the planet; we are quite happy playing behind the scenes.
I would like to say, on behalf of Kimberly and I, to my family, and to all my brothers and sisters on planet Earth, welcome to the family and thank you for welcoming us. We hope that you will come out and play with us.
