ABRAHAM (Ibrahim in the Islamic world) & To all my great GRANDCHILDREN

26 07 2014

Happy Day

Nearing the final days of the Holy month of RAMADAN, as a long-time resident of Turkey, I am HAPPY. The sun is shining, my neighbours, all adhering to those Islamitic traditions of the RAMAZAM (=Turkish) are happily together, talking, eating at sun-set and automatically also I am – sort of – following such a daily habit.
But in truth and reality: I do have my OWN set of daily habits as well.

That means: WORK – WORK – WORK at keeping me and my dearest loved ones INFORMED about being healthy, wealthy and wise. These important 3 of course mean everything to everyone of CHINESE origin.
I love that WISDOM.
But someone needs KNOWLEDGE how to achieve this.

And implementing knowledge on a regular daily basis definitely needs STAMINA, persistence. In order to do so, someone needs to the ability to think, certainly about recently FOUND information.

My life is filled with such great issues and whether others are fasting, not fasting, and having a wonderful family gathering, as is the custom, tradition during this peak RAMADAN period must not stop me *doing my thing*.

The current possibility to gather information online makes me a very contented user of the search engines until I find what I happen to be interested in. I manage to get about 5 hours of solid non-stop reading, absorbing, until my bodily functions begin warning me to stop for the day and get up, go, do some other useful work, such as preparing a meal.

Oh well, I usually say to myself: all good stuff I got out of the search engines at such a moment in time: very useful, rather important, however: after a while when I myself happen to stumble upon what I did store on my office PC: umngh..did I collect this?
Fortunately I do not have to remember when I collected such information since the PC with Windows 7 Pro automatically registers that.

Now, these days I am very often DELETING information, deciding either YES, I know this or Yikes: I do not want to look at this ever again, even: I do not want to have it stored on my PC.
At first I got a bit nervous stumbling on information, anxious NOT to be able to find it again. Of course and yes: store the link in *your favorites*, which I used to do, however for years now I rarely use them.
It means that the search engines are very very good, also: so much excellent information is now available provided by others through their website that I at least no longer feel anxious that I cannot find information I am looking for, either to refresh my own memory, update my own dusty knowledge.

Oh yes: about ABRAHAM: the man who began looking for a better place and life for his entire family – he started all 3 major religions: i.e. Judaism, Islamism, Christianism.

AMAZING!! honestly, my eyes rapidly began to read and read, until I just had to stop on the first day of this colossal topic I allowed myself to become aquainted with, and without one shadow of a doubt – rather superficially, not even scratching to surface.

But how for Pete’s sake did I get there? Brr…don’t ask me. However: I made notes, handwritten ones, even numbering the sequence in which I worked, lucky me or else I would now be very upset not being able to *refresh* my memory.

Yes: got it !!, on page 13 (A5 sized) there is is: OMNISCIENCE in big fat capitals.
So: the earlier 12 pages I wrote down for myself led to this word OMNISCIENCE.

What is it? Well – my departure point on that day (22nd July,2014) was the word LOGIC. You see it was the first word that jumped at me as soon as I got out of bed that day – in DUTCH I must tell you – saying to myself muttering under my breath *it must be LOGICAL i.e. realistic, reasonable.
OK then – I said eventually, let me start researching and of course I landed myself onto pages that only have to do with PHILOSOPHY. Quite interesting, I need to study philosophy so of course: LOGIC I read and continued until OMNISCIENCE, with rather a lot of information in between that I need to WORK on a lot more.

Again: Omniscience entails: the CAPACITY to know everything that there is to know.

Well I said to myself: that makes sense then. But as a note: and I quote *Mainly in religious ABRAHAMIC: Judaism, Christianity & Islam it is believed there is a divine being who is omniscient* i.e. God of course.

That much also I knew – that people consider God (or Allah or Jaweh) to know everything. It is definitely not so that I believe this, simply because I am not like that. I am not a religious person..
But about this ABRAHAM: YES I wanted to read as much as I could possibly read. I read where he originated from – apparently I say – since some critical practical persons spent lifetimes to establish whether or not this is really true. NO PROOF you see is available that Abraham really existed.
However – because it is so easy to find information I went on and on, until at a certain moment I really got confused, racing through *who=who* in the Abraham geneology.
Pff. I have to stop, throw some shortcuts on my desktop, organize the notes about what I originally began researching: LOGIC and get myself something to eat.

In addition I came across so many more interesting words and topics about which I either know nothing, or just a little, that at least I can say: enough to be busy with *when I have a moment*.
To everyone who lives on our planet I am saying, including myself meekly: it is NOT possible to know everything. And honestly for me leaving everything in God’s hands is 100% NOT an option.
Nonetheless: learning more about ABRAHAMICS is quite interesting. It was the very first time I decided to go into it, speed-reading. It is a start, is it not, better late than never.
I located from where these good people originated: Ur of Chaldee, in the Euphrate – Tigres area. Well, how about that I established: also where WRITING originated – Sumer, now in Iraq, about 100 km north of current Bagdad, geographically. The CHALDEANS, by the way, are also part of such ancient, and most likely thruthful history. Well I established: I have gone into most of that, already long before I had access to Internet, but no reason NOT to read more and better information soon.

I came across the Chaldeans already in 1988, after reading a book written by one of the best astrologers of our modern days: Linda Goodman. They worked with geometry, astrology, and above all with the *magic* numbers. That then appealed to me. Now I read that those Chaldeans actually were *invaders*, not Jewish, not Christian, and not Islamitic, they just arrived in the area, warmongering, slaying in order to overtake the ruler. Therefore: hmm…I suddenly thought a lot less of them, i.e. they dropped below zero in my esteem. So I need update myself. Linda Goodman stressed that theirs is the ONLY Kabbalistic numerology and NOT the Jewish Kabbalistic one, which today people also use.

In conclusion: I collected a lot, yes a lot of information, worth my while and to work on. I even went back to the beginnings of our planet Earth – geometry, as earth matter, rather gruesome, a bubbly volcanic planet apparently, donkeys year ago called The Hadean era, 4.5 billion years ago, apparently. Brr.
Oh yes I said: where good old king HADES ruled, at least according to GREEK mythology. Again: Brr. not now, when I dived into all that about 5 months ago, with spring about to start. I love the good, current planet Earth stuff, such as new leaves, fresh veggies and fruit + modern day technologies enabling me to have a decent and happy life, not to leave out: MONEY to buy what I like, can afford, and what keeps me healthy and *sane*.

As only a moment in my life:
Saturday, 26th July, 2014 from my desk, in Kaya Köyü, near Fethiye, Mugla, Turkey, where I as a Dutch resident live and enjoy a lot,
But: with the firm intention to relocate to the best place for me on the planet: my beloved hometown AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands. A city with SOUL, with a heart, structure, and where I was born.

Author Interview

10 07 2014

I am sincerely impressed with this author. A unique entity, but NOW that I have begun to read every book of his – wow – wow. Bless A.J. Davidson.

AJ Davidson's Books

Had an interview posted on Indie Books Unbound. Reviews and spotlight article to follow next Saturday.

http://www.indiebooksunbound.com/?p=102

Aj Davidson has been writing for over 15 years; he has published numerous crime novels, a non-fiction account of kidnapping in Northern Ireland, and even a play.  A well-seasoned Indie Author, he has been involved with Large Presses, Small Presses, and Independent Presses.  Graciously, AJ offered to be the first in a series of Indie Author Interviews.

IBU: Aj, when did you begin to write fiction?

AJ: I started writing fiction in 1995.  My first manuscript was Phoenix, a thriller set in Madeira, Spain and Gibraltar. Unfortunately, the plot was linked to the IRA and political progress in N. Ireland made the story redundant. A bit like spy stories going out of fashion after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the regime changes in Russia. The book sat in a drawer for…

Rewiring my own brain

Rewiring my own brain

 

Dear reader,

I am adding a 4p. PDF document with my recently updated, and most complete personal profile.

The reasons:

1. I wished to bundle my own online profiles, that can be found on plenty of other websites. Some are not that bad, some *ughh* could be improved upon, some on *social sites* or still my own *active* blogs I cannot re-write because:…….

2. Recently the Turkish Government, its Prime Minister Mr. Erdohan, deemed it necessary to BLOCK all users in Turkey from using: TWITTER and YOU TUBE (2nd time). Also http://www.scribd.com has been blocked for years, and I did love to use, upload, download what is available there = check it out. Again suddenly, a few years back, for more than 1 year Turkey blocked all users in Turkey using Google’s BLOGGER.

3. In short: I am unable to update my own profiles as I see fit and necessary, restricted by political hindrances caused by the Turkish Government . Besides, all websites globally move on, improve their facilities, including WORDPRESS,  and to my own surprise: whatever I filled out once, buying a few ebooks from http://www.smashwords.com appears as #one in the searchengines = NOT  http://www.willyholmesspoelder.com, which I do not understand, nor do I have the time (today) to go find out. Therefore: the uploaded rather complete profile: who is Willy Holmes-Spoelder, what did/does/can she do and much more can be read, even downloaded & printed/saved. is right here on http://www.willyholmesspoelder.com.

Willy Holmes-Spoelder, Edited Profile LinkedIn, 2nd April, 2014.

Note 1: It is my intention to PROVIDE everyone with useful information: at NO CHARGE, right here on my own website. I do have a lot *to share*.
Note 2: ALLERGIES, specially FOOD allergies have become a global concern, at least some great researchers are – at last – beginning to focus on this issue and some information does get published now. However: although I understand, only because I have been busy with these issues now for over 25 years, the majority of all of us: pfff..where does one begin..how can I find out..what can I, myself do!! meanwhile *sensitive* to whatever, and worst of all NOT even knowing this.
Note 3: So: here I am, full steam ahead, with only 24 hours in one day myself.

Sincerely, Willy (Holmes-Spoelder)

Author of the article 31st March,2014 ALLERGIES

Announcement:

From today: 31st March, 2014: because ALLERGIES, ALLERGIES &  ALLERGIES are the most important HEALTH issueSSS that this world is burdened with I, Willy Holmes-Spoelder, an allergic myself and an expert Health Counseller shall write about ALLERGIES.

I, Willy (for short) decided today, 31st March,2014 that as from today that’s what I WANT to share with others. My current WordPress Blog, which is only a try-out by myself, technically…is not the perfect online *office* yet. However: the article is a perfect one for everyone to read, print out, go to your own doctor with.

P.S. The PDF (link) works, there hover over the heading: and click to enter Dr. Mercola’s site. His site is one of the largest, most up-to-date ones, chock a block full with extremely more good information. Note: but first try to read all about ALLERGIES, even print out the PDF = try to NOT GET DISTRACTED, which in fact is also an ALLERGY (symptom).

Get wise, get informed, allow yourself the happiness to make discoveries, you as the explorer.

Once upon a time, as all stories start I came into the world. Then one day as a young adult I had the great good fortune to get *a job*, WORKING  for the former British Crown Colony HONG KONG. I began on the 1st of May, 1972 and I left those beautiful offices on 31st October, 1988.

Today, fast forward I am a resident of TURKEY, I live in the southern part of this beautiful country and life is really g.o.o.d. Lots and lots of fresh, clean air, organically grown veggies, fruit, similar eggs, and an extremely PRIVATE comfortable place to enjoy, day in day out.

Yesterday I talked to an old business friend of mine and because of it, my memories returned to what I used to do with so much love and passion: working for HONG KONG, which always was easier to explain than telling others what my job really entailed. You see, saying: I am The Representative BENELUX for The Hong Kong Trade Development Council always drew blanks.

People had no idea what that meant nor what I was busy doing. That quasi-governmental organization (HKTDC) which opened its doors – in Hong Kong –  in 1966 had the commitment to *put Hong Kong* at everyone’s door. Imports-Exports and above all promoting FREE TRADE between the former British Crown Colony and every country on the globe.

The Amsterdam Office was one of the first HKTDC offices opening that door on the 1st of May, 1972, after offices in the first chosen MAJOR countries such as Great Britain, the USA, Germany. Great! I was there from the start. I knew exactly what I was supposed to do and back then: yes –  we hired some premises, we registered with the Amsterdam Chamber of Commerce, got ourselves some desks and chairs, a telephone, a typewriter, a COFFEE machine and: we were ready for business, doors open  Monday to Friday 09.00-1700.

Today this sounds very peculiar, but in 1972 no faxes, printers, PC’s, photocopiers, not even a secretary we started out with. But I was HAPPY simply because I *was working for HONG KONG*, a place that had always been a MAGICAL one for me. Yes. Ever since I was in my early 20-ies, as a Stewardess (now called Flight/Cabin attendant) HONG KONG had been a place of magic.

Also today I decided to check online if I -at last- could find something about my former boss LEN DUNNING. He had the creative mind and foresight to convince the Hong Government that such an organization was NEEDED. With *carte blanche*, an open ticket around the world he visited countries where similar bodies already existed, and with that personal in-depth, he founded the HKTDC (1966).

LEN DUNNING – *In Memoriam*  12th March,1930 to 6th July,2011 and an excellent Obituary. He did become 81, yet I was *shocked*. Not because I thought *far too young to die*, but just shocked that Len is no longer alive and of course that because of circumstances, preventing  I had never seen or talked to him again. It was not that I ever was close to him, but he was my *ultimate* superior for many many years. Boy, do I hate it, does such make me sad…now I can never tell him just how much I respected him for CREATING such a fantastic organization, that Hong Kong Trade Development Council. The ideas that were born in his head and also realized were so unbelievably great. Spectacular shows, real fireworks, always and exclusively to attract the attention of foreign officials and public.

For me personally, as just one of those Overseas Reps. i.e. Willy Holmes from The Amsterdam Office, thank you Len Dunning, thank you. Without you I would never have had the opportunity to have such a great career as The BENELUX Representative HKTDC. Also, I would never have met such a melange of interesting people: from pauper to king. Always with only one mission and that was, still is:  to get them GO –  visit HONG KONG.

One day in our lives full of joy and happiness + good company/food.

One day in our lives full of joy and happiness + good company/food.

Sometimes a picture tells you more than just 1000 words. Here: quite a story, my own, with 22 years of living experience in this beautiful country in the mysterious Occident, and now: my 2 eldest lovely granddaughters SHARING their Gran’s life for a brief moment in time. But: we did not have 1 spare minute with still many many things to discover. Next time, probably earlier on in the season.

For My Much Loved Grandchildren

8 05 2013

Today, feeling *in the Spirit* of AMBER I must write a few words.

Yes: they make me a happy grandmother. Why? Well they send me sweet messages. I live in far away Turkey, they are busy with their young lives in my home town Amsterdam, The Netherlands, so I cannot just pop around or ask them to come over for some nice home-cooked food.

Today: I also talked to one of my oldest (male) friends – Skype – of course, and also that was a nice small moment, making today a good one too.

Yesterday, oh boy: did I have fun going into Fethiye to do a bit of shopping, withdraw some CASH from the BEST bank ever: HSBC (good old Hong Kong Shanghai Banking Corporation) They have 2 ATM’s, typical I suddenly noticed, although I know they do have 2, yes a typical HONG KONG minded practical business approach. One was empty €, oh dear, another bank, but oh no, lets try #2 and that produced the much desired money.

It made me happy, I love it when everything goes smoothly and according to what is best for me (and WHO does not, eh?) Sometimes though everything seems to NOT go like that and then I get really irritable even to the point of feeling worn out i.e. start developing some sort of depressed feeling.

But: I fight with every inch of my being to NOT let any nasty vibe get at me to ruin my own good *I*. To spoil my happy frame of mind actually is strictly forbidden you see.

I knew several persons in the past, who always were out to do that.

Such so-called *friends*: who needs enemies with friends like that we used to say when I was surrounded by folks from Amsterdam, in Amsterdam with *the same sense of humour*. Yes having a good sense of humour next to a lot of practical common sense: I get along with people like that famously.

Such people create in me: zest for life, laughter, smiles, create *I feel  good* (brain/train) motions. Yes. It is far better than listening to a whining voice, with under- and overtones of whatever they have NOT *going* in their lives.

I mean: such people are great to have as clients of course, but not when I am out and about in my own free time.

Which makes me *jump* to this:

LOVE = NEVER ENOUGH, a great book by one of the best 20th Century psychiatrists on the planet Dr. Aaron Beck (named in one breath with Freud and Jung). In 2010 I ordered it and the fact that the book actually arrived where I live these days was already such a happy moment that I put it away on my Bookshelf without going through all his patient case-studies.

However, as a trained Methaphysician having a book like that in my house is already enough to *work* with, although working with such subtle vibrations does take some time to take effect. and often evoke months and months of plain hard labour working with one of my favourite (magic) squares, the Venus Square, and on paper (ruitjes-papier) i.e paper with little squares (grids).

NOTE: anyone WHO happens to stumble upon this article may think ??? what was I trying to read, what was I searching for in the GOOGLE searchengine ?? Sorry about that, and please forgive me, but please do remember: this article is basically about me – i.e. WillySaysSo and for my own grandchildren.

I am doing this in a nice, yet sneaky, round about way, because when I *tell* them something, well every adult, parent or university lecturer knows it: often students nod off a bit, do they not?

But: what I do write, because I do know a few things: well: if others can use it too: I am happy. After all: you the reader may not yet have heard about this, that, and what I have discovered, worked out (on paper). Not that many online *marketeers* have the time to begin a METAPHYSICAL research and discovery project such as I started doing from 1991.

Yes, I am happy, not only for the above listed reasons only, but especially because MY LOVELY GRANDCHILDREN *love* me.

Wow, if that is not the greatest compliment a grizzly old gran can get. Honestly, I am serious.

My grandchildren through some terrible sadness of mine = losing one of my 2 children through a terminal brain tumor last year, 30th January, 2012 have become more precious and valuable to me, than I could ever have believed possible – should a fortune teller have forcasted that to me, for instance.

I know it is amazing, they are amazing, and because I have become a trained and practizing professional Methaphysician – amazing things are happening now, but only I know that.

Always, really, I never think beforehand in a calculating way, I mean, I never lay Tarod Cards, I never consult *The I Ching Book*, I just go about things as if I am just an ordinary person (which I am of course), Yes. And then sometimes but not always something happens that I have to work out for myself! = Some MAGIC is knocking on my (metaphysical) door and I am not yet hearing it, i.e. still too ignorant to know what it could possibly be.

Once I am in Essential Oil *Heaven* such things did happen before and also right now: I am *on to something*

So for instance, yesterday when I walked through the beautiful Fethiye marketplace (Gün Pazar) open Daily that is: I stopped by to say hello to my friends at *Sister’s Place. These nice helpfull people sell herbs, spices and above all: very good *ESSENTIALS OILS*.

Where have you been they asked. Oh well I might as well come in then, sit down, have a look around and then. after buying some very ordinary stuff such as garlic powder, turmeric and flaming hot red chili pepper flakes: WOW.

What did I see there: I screamed with delight – Tarik, come back, he tried to escape you see: Tarik HELP please: those oils…I trembled with excitement, because I did not have those in my own collection of over about 120 different ones.

And I ordered, 50 ml. bottles of Peony, Bluebell, *RÜHEL MISK*, the most intriguing AMBER musk, Safflower (blossom), my very *beloved* WHITE ROSE and some more of the more common/known ones, such as: Basilicum, Turkish T.Tree.

As if MONEY is growing on trees, eh? Well it is not where I live of course, however – why not spend a bit of (my) money on myself, I reasoned.

Anyway, I sighed, because before I start working with unknown to me essential oils, such as Peony, Bluebell I do have to check online and read what the healing/medicinal properties are, to give my brain (through my eyes) a whiff of what is coming (ha,ha).

It was ok, not that much to check. Happy!! Done!!

Now around 19.30 pm my time in Turkey: I just have to end this or else I get behind doing the stuff I do evenings.

Meanwhile wishing to post this article: the KEYWORDS eh!!

Those magical keywords that the Google searchengine actually likes, respects and gets your article *published* there: pff but I shall put a few down.

With much gratitude that I am an online person, and so much more that I like to write about: until quite soon i.e. there is a lot, a lot more *in me* and best is it not, for me that is, that I get it out and rolling.
