Our life journey or Ithaca by Cavafy

December 5, 2016

Didn’t have much time to learn Greek today, had to give testimony at court about cyber crimes etc. But below is another poem by Cavafy in English and Greek, perhaps his most famous poem of all,  based on Homer’s Odyssey. It is called Ithaca or IthAki in Greek. If you don’t stress the A in IthAki no local will understand you…

What is your Ithaka or IthAki? How do meet the obstacles that you encounter on the way? Who are your Laistrygonians (cannibals that Odysseus and his sailors meet), Cyclops (a one eyed giant with lots of sheep who lives in a cave), and angry Poseidon (ancient Greek sea god who has a grudge against Odysseus)? Are they your spouse, neighbour, bank manager or boss?  Or are they attitudes within yourself? A tendency to lack confidence in your abilities, to be anxious or overly ambitious?

Do you believe you have a destiny to fulfil, a  great life purpose, an Ithaca, to reach  a stunning island (which was Odysseus home, rightful place, although it took him 10 years to reach it after the Trojan war)? Do you have a  life dream? A vision of how you can make a great contribution to humanity?

Do you believe life is about development or about the acquisition of material things? How have you developed as a human being on your journey through life? Have you developed at all?

Can you imagine achieving a state of genuine peace and happiness when you reach your personal goal, Ithaca? Can you imagine a day when you will feel abundance, ease, joy, the touch of immortality?

Think about your life as you read the poem by Cavafy. Can you relate the poem to your life? Or does its message seem alien to you? Or does it seem strangely familiar?

Ithaka

As you set out for Ithaka
 hope the voyage is a long one,
 full of adventure, full of discovery.
 Laistrygonians and Cyclops,
 angry Poseidon—don’t be afraid of them:
 you’ll never find things like that on your way
 as long as you keep your thoughts raised high,
as long as a rare excitement
 stirs your spirit and your body.
 Laistrygonians and Cyclops,
 wild Poseidon—you won’t encounter them
 unless you bring them along inside your soul,
 unless your soul sets them up in front of you.
 
 Hope the voyage is a long one.
 May there be many a summer morning when,
 with what pleasure, what joy,
 you come into harbors seen for the first time;
 may you stop at Phoenician trading stations
 to buy fine things,
 mother of pearl and coral, amber and ebony,
 sensual perfume of every kind—
as many sensual perfumes as you can;
 and may you visit many Egyptian cities
 to gather stores of knowledge from their scholars.
 
 Keep Ithaka always in your mind.
 Arriving there is what you are destined for.
 But do not hurry the journey at all.
 Better if it lasts for years,
 so you are old by the time you reach the island,
 wealthy with all you have gained on the way,
 not expecting Ithaka to make you rich.
 
 Ithaka gave you the marvelous journey.
 Without her you would not have set out.
 She has nothing left to give you now.
 
 And if you find her poor, Ithaka won’t have fooled you.
 Wise as you will have become, so full of experience,
you will have understood by then what these Ithakas mean.

And the original Greek.

Ιθάκη is IthAki, the accent being on the a.
Ιθάκη 

Σα βγεις στον πηγαιμό για την Ιθάκη,
να εύχεσαι νάναι μακρύς ο δρόμος,
γεμάτος περιπέτειες, γεμάτος γνώσεις.
Τους Λαιστρυγόνας και τους Κύκλωπας,
τον θυμωμένο Ποσειδώνα μη φοβάσαι,
τέτοια στον δρόμο σου ποτέ σου δεν θα βρεις,
αν μέν’ η σκέψις σου υψηλή, αν εκλεκτή
συγκίνησις το πνεύμα και το σώμα σου αγγίζει.
Τους Λαιστρυγόνας και τους Κύκλωπας,
τον άγριο Ποσειδώνα δεν θα συναντήσεις,
αν δεν τους κουβανείς μες στην ψυχή σου,
αν η ψυχή σου δεν τους στήνει εμπρός σου.

Να εύχεσαι νάναι μακρύς ο δρόμος.
Πολλά τα καλοκαιρινά πρωιά να είναι
που με τι ευχαρίστησι, με τι χαρά
θα μπαίνεις σε λιμένας πρωτοειδωμένους·
να σταματήσεις σ’ εμπορεία Φοινικικά,
και τες καλές πραγμάτειες ν’ αποκτήσεις,
σεντέφια και κοράλλια, κεχριμπάρια κ’ έβενους,
και ηδονικά μυρωδικά κάθε λογής,
όσο μπορείς πιο άφθονα ηδονικά μυρωδικά·
σε πόλεις Aιγυπτιακές πολλές να πας,
να μάθεις και να μάθεις απ’ τους σπουδασμένους.

Πάντα στον νου σου νάχεις την Ιθάκη.
Το φθάσιμον εκεί είν’ ο προορισμός σου.
Aλλά μη βιάζεις το ταξείδι διόλου.
Καλλίτερα χρόνια πολλά να διαρκέσει·
και γέρος πια ν’ αράξεις στο νησί,
πλούσιος με όσα κέρδισες στον δρόμο,
μη προσδοκώντας πλούτη να σε δώσει η Ιθάκη.

Η Ιθάκη σ’ έδωσε τ’ ωραίο ταξείδι.
Χωρίς αυτήν δεν θάβγαινες στον δρόμο.
Άλλα δεν έχει να σε δώσει πια.

Κι αν πτωχική την βρεις, η Ιθάκη δεν σε γέλασε.
Έτσι σοφός που έγινες, με τόση πείρα,
ήδη θα το κατάλαβες η Ιθάκες τι σημαίνουν.


WAS THE GUN ATTACK ON A PIZZA PARLOUR AT CENTRE OF THE HILLARY CLINTON AND PODESTA PAEDOPHILE RING A FALSE FLAG? IMMEDIATE CALLS FOR “FAKE NEWS” SITES TO BE SHUT DOWN

December 5, 2016

A gun man entered a Washington pizza restaurant on Sunday “to self-investigate” a report that it was operating a child abuse ring tied to Hillary Clinton and her campaign manager John Podesta.

http://www.reuters.com/article/us-washingtondc-gunman-idUSKBN13T0YE

Pizzagate is an investigation into corruption, child trafficking and abuse uncovered in the Wikileaks John Podesta emails.

https://voat.co/v/pizzagate

The attack looks like a staged “hate-filled, homophobic, right-wing Christian” attack who was influenced by FAKE NEWS to attack the respectable pizza place in order to justify banning “hateful” web sites that investigate the pedophiles.

Washington’s Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement that Edgar Maddison Welch, 28, an actor, was charged.

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2625901/?ref_=tt_ov_wr

Welch is also a registered Republican. Coincidence?

https://voterrecords.com/voter/49988317/edgar-welch

Following the incident, the owner James Alefantis immediately contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the local police, and he has asked Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Reddit to remove the articles.

“Yet the misinformation has continued to spread, growing into a theory known as #pizzagate that has traveled to Ireland. At one point, Comet’s staff counted five #pizzagate Twitter posts a minute. As recently as Sunday night, the Twitter message “Don’t let up. #PizzaGate EVERYWHERE” was reposted and liked hundreds of times,” reports the New York Times.

A day before the incident, the Deptartment of Transportation allegedly changed the position of the traffic camera at Massachetts and Connecticut, Northwest, which had had Comet Ping Pong in view, to remove Comet from the scene, further suggesting the notion that it was a false flag attack.

Congress representatives, urged on by John Podesta, is pushing a bill to stop fake news on the grounds it causes “senseless acts of violence.”

Paedophilia is a global phenomena.

Norwegian police have filed charges against 51 individuals including policiticians involved in a paedophilia ring thought to be one of the largest child sexual abuse scandals in the country’s history.

“There are several highly educated [individuals] with high IT skills. They’ve used encryption and anonymity to hide their tracks,” head police prosecutor Janne Ringset Heltne said at the Sunday press conference.

http://www.thelocal.no/20161121/police-break-up-massive-norwegian-paedophilia-ring

Fifty-five UK football clubs have been referred to police in the child sex abuse scandal.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/sex-abuse-claims-55-english-football-clubs-005008187–sow.html

But the Globalist’s occult paedophilia and crimes against children is extremely chilling.

Read my two short stories of fiction concerning members of a high ranking paedophile ring in Vienna here.

Any resemblance to the mysterious murder of former Minister of Interior Liese Prokop in Austria and the case of Natascha Kampusch is mere coincidence.


LANDSLIDE NO VOTE IN ITALIAN REFERENDUM PUTS ITALY ON THE BRINK OF AN EURO EXIT

December 5, 2016

Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi said he would resign following a defeat on Sunday in a referendum over his proposals for constitutional reform, opening the way for new elections which could see an anti euro party win power.

Almost 60% of the voters voted against his proposals. The 20% margin of the No camp will make it difficult for the Italian president to ask Renzi to form a new government and delay elections.

Renzi said he would convene his cabinet and then hand in his resignation to President Sergio Mattarella.

http://derstandard.at/2000048774049/Referendum-Mehrheit-gegen-Verfassungsreform-in-Italien

The clear No vote in the Italian referendum makes the result for Establishment candidate Alexander van der Bellen as president in Austria even more extraordinary, and is bound to raise questions given the two previous elections with proven cases of irregularities.


FIRST PROJECTION: GLOBALIST WINS AUSTRIAN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION

December 4, 2016

An extraordinary result. Establishment candidate Alexander van der Bellen made significant gains compared to the May elections to win the presidential election according to the first projections.

Van der Bellen got  53,6 % of the vote while Hofer got 46,4 %, far ahead of the marginal 31,000 votes in May 22nd.

Postal votes will be counted tomorrow when the final result will be known.

After voting irregularities were proven in the May 22 presidential election and the first scheduled re run (glueless envelopes), Austrians may well be asking how this result came about if it does stand. There is no need to make so much effort to steal an election if a candidate is really so far in the lead as this projection puts Van der Bellen.

Meanwhile, the result from the Italian referendum is due in soon.

HACKED AGAIN! MORE EVIDENCE TO BE GIVEN TO THE JUDGE TOMORROW. BLOCKED FROM POSTING THIS ENTRY, THROWN OUT OF MY BLOG AND FORCED TO REENTER PASSWORD.

UPDATE

VAN DER BELLEN HAS WON THE ELECTION ACCORDING TO THE FIRST PROJECTIONS, POSTAL VOTES STILL HAVE TO BE COUNTED THE END RESULT LOOKS UNLIKELY TO BE AFFECTED

FIRST PROJECTIONS FROM VORALBERG GIVE VAN DER BELLEN A WIDE LEAD OVER HOFER, LEADS 60% TO 40%, HAS MADE MARGINAL GAINS COMPARED TO 22 MAY

POLLS IN AUSTRIA HAVE NOW CLOSED

FIRST PROJECTIONS EXPECTED IN TEN TO FIFTEEN MINUTES

 
Watch live stream in German of the first projections of the historic Austrian presidential elections expected in under an hour.

http://diepresse.com/home/politik/bpwahl/5128260/Ab-1630-Uhr_Die-Presse-Hofburg-Wahlstudio-2016

In Salzburg, the polls have already closed at 4 pm local time. This time 22.7% fewer postal votes were cast in Salzburg compared to the elections in May 22. Bad news for Van der Bellen? He won  an unusually high proportion of postal votes, which later became the focus of fraud investigations.

There have been reports of unusually high voter turnout in spite freezing weather.

Just under an hour to go until we know whether Austria will have exited the Globalist New World Order.

Because of its geographical location, Austria is a key country for blocking the engineered radical Islam migrant influx moving through Greece and the Balkans into northern Europe.

Screenshot of my post being blocked at 7 39 Greek time although connected with the internet.

Screenshot showing how I have just been blocked from putting a screenshot up showing how I had been locked out my own blog illegally immediately afterwards and forced to reenter my own password.

I am told I do not have authorization to a put a screenshot my own blog up showing a crime.

You have to wonder at the intelligence of the hackers, constantly caught in the act of serious crimes when I am only reporting on what the entire world’s media will report on soon.

But it’s an honour to think my reports are considered so damaging to the Globalists, that they have to constantly hack my computer and Wifi.

I  have dual Austrian citizen, so a win for Hofer will strengthen my case here in Austria and Alexis Tsipras and his cronies know it, and are also on the edge of their seats, it seems, looking to block my posts at every opportunity….

Learning more Greek with Cavafy….

December 4, 2016

As we wait in suspense for the results of the Austrian presidential election and the Italian referendum, I have been trying to learn some more Greek to better advance my own case here in Larisa but also because the literature is beautiful.

My aim is to be able to speak to the people at the Areios Pagos directly about what their plan is for my case now that I found out that judges and prosecutors formally accused by me, Ioannis Mangkoutas and Dimitra Papacosta, have once more been given by case in violation of rules forbidding anyone accused from investigating their own case

Today, I made a stab at another short poem by Cavafy….

http://www.cavafy.com/poems/content.asp?id=85&cat=1

One dreary September day
 Emperor Manuel Komninos
 felt his death was near.
 The court astrologers—bribed, of course—went on babbling
 about how many years he still had to live.
 But while they were having their say,
 he remembered an old religious custom
 and ordered ecclesiastical vestments
 to be brought from a monastery,
 and he put them on, glad to assume
 the modest image of a priest or monk.
 
 Happy all those who believe,
 and like Emperor Manuel end their lives
dressed modestly in their faith.

The Greek original can be read here…

http://www.kavafis.gr/poems/content.asp?id=92&cat=1

And this is my rough interlinear version of the poem for anyone who wants to learn modern Greek with me using this rather novel method.

Ο βασιλεύς κυρ Μανουήλ ο Κομνηνός
King                        Manuel Komninos
μια μέρα μελαγχολική του Σεπτεμβρίου
one day        dreary               of September
αισθάνθηκε τον θάνατο κοντά. Οι αστρολόγοι
felt                     death        near.     The astrologers
(οι πληρωμένοι)                             της αυλής εφλυαρούσαν
(the bribed, also a word very important for my case!) went on babbling
που άλλα πολλά χρόνια θα ζήσει ακόμη.
about how many years to live he had still.
Ενώ όμως έλεγαν αυτοί, εκείνος
But while they said this, that fellow,
παληές συνήθειες ευλαβείς θυμάται,
old religious custom he remembered
κι απ’ τα κελλιά των μοναχών προστάζει
from the cells of monks he ordered
ενδύματα εκκλησιαστικά να φέρουν,
clothes ecclesisastical to be bought,
και τα φορεί, κ’ ευφραίνεται που δείχνει
and them he wore, glad to assume
όψι σεμνήν ιερέως ή καλογήρου.
the modest image of a priest or monk.

Ευτυχισμένοι όλοι που πιστεύουν,
 Happy all those who believe,
και σαν τον βασιλέα κυρ Μανουήλ τελειώνουν
and like Emperor Manuel end
ντυμένοι μες στην πίστι των σεμνότατα.
dressed in their faith of modesty.

Tomorrow I have to go Larisa court again at 10 am to testify about a lawyer from Thessaloniki who hacked my computer…

 


POLLS WILL SOON CLOSE IN AUSTRIA’S HISTORIC PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION

December 4, 2016

Four weeks after Donald Trump’s US election victory and five months after the British voted to leave the EU, polls are preparing to close in Austria vote today to decide an historic election.

The first projections together with postal votes are expected at 5 15 pm Austrian time.

The final result will be given tomorrow after postal votes are counted.

http://diepresse.com/home/politik/bpwahl/5127488/Jetzt-live_Der-Wahltag-im-Ticker?_vl_backlink=/home/index.do

The anti establishment and anti-immigration Norbert Hofer is set to defeat  Alexander Van der Bellen if the elections are fair.

In the presidential election on May 22, Hofer lost by just 31,000 votes to Van der Bellen. But Hofer’s Freedom Party (FPOe) secured a re-run because of voter fraud. The rerun was then postponed because of fears of more voter fraud through faulty glue on postal votes.

Postal votes had given Van der Bellen victory in May. This time there are 20% fewer postals voters registered.

Fears of fraud are focussing instead this time on votes from ex patriots as in the Italian referendum.

The vote takes place the same day as an Italian referendum on constitutional reforms that could bring down Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and renew political upheaval in Europe’s fourth-biggest economy.

Austria’s presidency is largely ceremonial, but a president does have the power to dissolve a government and trigger new elections.

If Hofer does this, a new government formed out of centre ground nationalist parties is expected to win elections, signalling a seismic shift in the political landscape.

In their final televised debate on Thursday Hofer repeated the accusation that Van der Bellen was a Stasi spy. Angela Merkel has also been accused of being a Stasi spy “IM Erika,” who was blackmailed or worked of her free will for the CIA after the fall of the wall.

http://www.focus.de/politik/deutschland/tid-31300/titel-das-leben-der-anderen-angela-merkel-stasi-akte-merkel_aid_994336.html

Van der Bellen’s late father may also have been a Nazi sympathizer. Van der Bellen’s family obtained special permission during the war to resettle from Estonia to Germany and eventually Vienna, something that was very difficult to get.

Alexander van der Bellen’s father was  employed in Talinn in a British Bank, the British overseas bank.

The Van der Bellens went to Germany in 1941 as part of a repatriation programme for families organized by the Nazis. The family travelled to Vienna in 1941 where Alexander Van der Bellen senior was hired as the manager of Koch und Knüpffer Außenhandelsgesellschaft m.b.H., something that also strongly suggests strong links to the Nazis.

He allegedly worked in the export department.

Interestingly, Bank of England documents show that Austria continued to pay interest and dividends to Britian during most of the second world war.

A document called UNITED KINGDOM OVERSEAS INVESTMENTS 1938 to 1948 shows that Austria paid half a million pounds to Britian in 1938, 700,000 pounds in 1939, 200,000 pounds in 1941, 100,000 pounds in 1945, 500,000 pounds in 1946.
