MasterCoverVol1no4

Der Orchideengarten Vol 1 No 4 contains the stories and poems: The Coffee Pot by Theophile Gautier; Dios Vienne by Leo Perutz; Cox-City by Apollinarius Wileem; Adventure of a Wolf by Alexander Petofi. These have been translated by Joe E. Bandel and include the original artwork. Technical Editor is John Hirschhorn-Smith.

Just in time for the first of August! I really loved translating these stories! I can’t choose between “The Coffee Pot” and “Dios Vienne” as my favorites for this issue. Just to be upfront, “Dios Vienne” appears to be a fragment from the book “The Marquis de Bolibar”. It was so interesting that I bought a cheap copy of the novel on line and am looking forward to reading the entire story. “The Coffee Pot” really touched my heart and reminded me of why I love this type of literature so much.

There is no way to prevent to emergence of the new and free individual. They are being created out of the very stresses that are trying to enslave others. The old ways involve the manipulation of group energy and the old ways are no longer working! On the one hand identity politics tries to gather group energy and on the other hand those hoping to enslave the human race try to prevent congregations gathering in churchs for empowerment! The entire Covid-19 stategy is to isolate individuals and prevent them from tapping into group power unless it is politically correct! But the reality is almost comical! Depriving individuals of group empowerment is forcing those individuals to stand on their own two feet as individuals! Individual rights! Individual freedoms! Individual free speech! The qualities our country was based upon by the founding fathers! The restrictions we now confront are the birth pangs of a long awaited rebirth of individualism!

Between now and the November elections the most damaging information that is released will be the consequences of dead man switches being activated. In many ways it is not what you do in life that matters, but the legacy that you live behind after you are gone. And sooner or later each one of us will be gone. That’s how this game called life works!

 

The November elections are clearly the defining events of this entire year and will influence future events for many years to come. If it doesn’t happen before the November elections it doesn’t matter! So this is the end game and both sides are beginning to play rough… The problem is that deadman switches are now being activated and they are unleashing their payloads without consideration of the niceties of civilized manners. After all, they are from dead men and women!

Simplicissimus Vol. 1 No. 1 was first published on 4 April 1896 in the German language as a satirical arts weekly. This is the first English translation and it has been reformatted to a color magazine. It was originally published in newspaper form. Later issues had lots of interior color illustrations in the Art Nouveau style. The front and back covers are always specially colored and beautiful. This first issue was much more simplistic. It contains stories and poems by: Frank Wedekind-Princess Russalka; Richard Dehmel-Greeted by Fear; Jacob Wasserman-Siesta; Arthur Holitscher-The Lonely Pond; Mia Holm-Alone; Theodor Wolff-Song; Th. Th. Heine-Wurst and Love; Georg Herwegh-Homage; Robert Bruss-To Georg Herwegh in the summer of 1852; Carl Busse-Leaving in Spring; Joe E. Bandel-The Last Page. Translation by Joe E. Bandel.

I am excited to publish this very first issue of Simplicissimus! It has long been a dream of mine and I am finally able to realize it. This series is simply for those who love beautiful words and beautiful pictures. There is a soul and a spirit within each issue that carries a vitality and love of life that is missing to today’s world and we need it! At least I do!

Gaia Ascends

 

I’m actually happy to share that Gaia has ascended and all that is left is for humanity to catch up! She is glowing and radiating as she has never done before and the etheric bodies of all organic life have been permanently activated with an alternating current type of energy. For all practical purposes this means that any repressed energies, emotions and toxins will be released and if not brought into conscious awareness they will be acted out in psychotic episodes as we are currently seeing on our streets.

Violence is not and never will be the answer! It is only the open heart and the open hand that matter from now on. All negativity is being caught up in a negative accelerating and self-destructive spiral. This is going to end and it will by the end of the year before the winter solstice.

As we find our life circumstances crystallizing around us we can finally begin to look foward to the future. It is time to create our new world as we imagine it to be!

As Gaia begins to shine with her own light illuminating all life upon her she is exposing the vampires in our midst.

An increasingly united humanity is opening it’s collective heart in an outpouring of love and spiritual light. We want freedom and good will toward each other, not hatred and violence. People are waking up and coming to their senses… As the spiritual light increases the vampires become more frantic and their insanity becomes even more obvious. Between now and the winter solstice it will become obvious to all who are the vampires and who are the light workers. Gaia is in the process of ejecting the vampires and predators and their discomfort is becoming plain to see for every one. I’m talking about the energy vampires, those predators that live upon the fear and anger of the masses.

We have waited for this for a long time! Gaia’s activation of our etheric bodies signals a profound polarity switch within our world. For the first time our physical bodies are now drawing sustenance from the pure energies of light and love in a demonstrable way. I have seen this transformation in my dog Luci in her final physical days. Gaia is now radiating this powerful new life energy out in support of all ascending lifeforms…

All life forms with an organic connection to her are receiving this influx of life energy. Those living in their heads with no energetic connection to Gaia are not able to receive these supportive energies. They are not ascending…

As we enter the post pandemic world those ascending are filled with hope as an entirely new world opens up in all its splendor. Those not ascending are still living in fear…
