|With the help of the Divine a small force can defeat an army of thousands|
This is a true story of an event that happened in the year, 1996 if memory serves me still and somethings it does not. I am writng about this now because I have been moved to do so for whatever reason. I am reluctant to share such experiences in a public manner due to the lack of understnading in the majority of the population yet there are a few who will listen to my story and understand and this is for them. I have never put my experience into writing until now but have only told it to a few as a means of instruction.
I was invited to speak at a week long spiritual conference in Sweden and was able to stay at a school of alternative medicine that had a dormatory for it’s students. I rented a car for a few weeks, staying over and did some travelling in Sweden and Norway. One morning I set off to Norway not knowing of my destination. I often liked to travel in this more adventurous manner.
Anyhow, I set out in the morning with a roadmap and a bottle of water and headed toward the Norweigan border. Along, the way, I saw a young man along the side of the road hitch hiking so decided to pick him up. I started to speak Swedish to him and he looked at me like a question mark. He spoke in American English saying he did not understadd. I laughed and said, ”Oh you are an American.” I asked him about his travels and where he was off to. He said he was on his way to the far north where there was a spiritual group but along the eway he was stopping at some friends of his father who lived in a town just south of Oslo. I told him that I had no plans, so would be happy to take him there. We ended up at a business that was owned by the friend of his family.
While there, I asked if there was a hotel in town and they told me about one on the fjord just a few kilometers down the road in which they pointed to. So, I set off looking for the hotel. Along the way, I saw a man working in his yard, stopped the car and got out and asked if he spoke English. It turns out he was a translator and was very proficient in English. He told me that the hotel was just a kilometer ahead. I am mentioning him only because he is an important piece of this puzzle in understanding my story. We will come back to that at the end of this story.
I booked a room for the night with the option of staying another night if I decided to stay longer. I asked about the restaurant and if I could buy coffee in the evening. I was told that a tab would be kept and I would pay for all meals and other charges when checking out. The staff was very polite and friendly.
It was during the first evening after dinner I saw the waitress sitting in a side room talking to an older man. They were curious about me and where I came from and what I was doing in Norway. I told them why I was in Sweden and was now on a short trip to Norway thus beginning a conversation. The waitress tranlated for me since the older gentlemen did not speak English. The man did not look healthy to me and while talking with him he turned red as a beet and started to sweat profusely. He said that he felt as if he was on fire. I looked at him and told him via the young woman that there was nothing to fear, sometimes I had this effect upon certain people. I told her I had some special skills in healing and no harm would come to the man. She seemed to understand as did he. After an hour with them, I excused myself and went to my room.
That night it was difficult to fall asleep. My chest felt constricted and was and acheing with pain as if there was heavy black mass in them and they felt as if they would explode and I was burning like I was on fire and sweating profusely. I fell asleep and had a very vivid dream. I dreamt that there was a small group of men or soldiers hiding in the trees and they had a small canon. I saw a very long ship coming nearer on the fjord. I also saw some beings of an brillant white light watching over the men and I believed guiding them. These angelic beings appeared to me sometimes in a human being like form that is composed of a brillant white light. I have never seen them with wings. When the ship was directly in front of them, one man fired the canon and could see it was a direct hit to the side of the ship. I remember one of these beings of Light was at his side as he fired the cannon but I cannot now remember if it was one shot or more but it was not many. There was little time for them to be there since it was a hit and run operation and I can remember they left the weapon behind and then ran inland to safety in a hurry.
I then woke up and it was morning. I showered and dressed and went to the breakfast buffet. The room was full of hotel guests. The older gentlemen from the previous evening came into the room, saw me and and came near. He looked like a new man, full of color and energy and with a big smile on his face. He warmly patted me on my back and gave a speech to the whole restaurant. I only could understand one word and that was, doctor. After that everyone in the room looked at me as if I were some sort of celebrity . Later that day I went to the beach to sun and he saw me and invited me to go sailing with him. A young man was with him came over to me, invited me to go to the man and then translated my English to Norwegian. I asked what did it cost to sail with a hotel boat and was told nothing but I respectfully declined and thanked him for his kind offer. I explained I would be returning to Sweden soon since I had decided that I would leave the hotel before checkout time and return to Sweden that day.
I checked out and asked for my bill and was told that it had been taken care of. I did not understand and asked again. I was told that I did not need to pay for my stay or the food but was not given any information. I said, OK and thanked them and complimented the hotel and the friendly helpful staff and said my goodbyes.
I returned on the road I came in on and headed back to the highway that would take me to south. On the way, I said the man who had given me directions previously, so stopped. While in converstation, I asked him about the history of this place and if a battle happened at the site of the hotel. His eyes got big and he asked me, ”Are you a Shaman?” I said sort of and told him my dream which at that time I could remember in detail. He looked at me in amazement and said, that is actually as it happened. This was a famous battle in the history of Norway in which a few soldiers helped to sink a German transport ship full of soldiers on their way to Oslo to capture the seat of government. He said because of this heroic deed, it took the Germans 2 or 3 more days to reach Oslo and the King of Norway and his family were able to escape to England.
Now, to the moral of this story. My lesson that day was to learn that a small force with the help of the Divine could defeat a very large force of the enemy and that kindness shared could heal the most serious of illnesses . To this day, I have never returned to the hotel or know who the older man was. I got the sense that he was someone of great importance by the way everyone treated him.
The name of the place where the famous battle took place is called, Skiphelle or Ship Hill in English. I read about the battle so this could have very well been one commando group of many on the shores of the fjord. There were several small attack groups plus a torpedo battery from a fort nearby. This was indeed a famous event in the history of Norway as I researched and found out later. Perhaps those from Norway might know of this place and leave a comment.

Interview 4 of 4
Mr. Ngoyen Phu Trong and Mr. Vo Kim Cu. Possibly, the Two Most Hated Men In Vietnam and Ha Tinh Province, Vietnam.
In this final interview in the four part series about the Formosa Chemical Company poisoning of the sea and ground water in Ha Tinh Province, Vietnam we hear several local citizens speak about their anger or animosity toward Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong, Prime Minister of Vietnam and Mr. Vo Kim Cu, the Governor of Ha Tinh Province where the chemical spill occurred. We hear the same old global story of the governments siding with Corporations and protecting their interests rather than the interests and health and welfare of their own citizens. The aftermath of this environmental tragedy has left them very anti-Communist Party and very anti-government. This may very well be one of the major causes of the growing movement in Vietnam toward Democracy.

Poisoned Well Water In Ha Tinh Province, Vietnam
In this interview we hear about the poisoned ground water in the area of the Formosa Chemical Company. The Interview took place in 2016. A man is being interviewed and there is another interview with a family effected talking about the poisoning of the ground water not so far from the site of the Formosa Chemical Plant along with another man talking about his water source being poisoned. He explains that the water from his well became muddy one month after the chemical spill. He said that he has used this well for 25 years and there was never a problem with the water before. The family explains that the water has a dark film on it and this never happened before. The two main themes of this interview is that there have been no government or company officials out to test the water and that the citizens in the area need some help to purchase water filters but no help has been forthcoming in this emergency. In the last interview in this video we meet a man who has lost his income from fishing and cannot afford to buy a filter for his well. It is pretty clear that after listening to this video that there is a total lack of support from both the government and the Formosa Chemical Company of China.

Man Van Dinh is a Vietnamese Fisherman who speaks openly about the Formosa Chemical Company poisoning of the water in Vietnam. He bravely speaks about his experiences and the hardships that this Chinese chemical factory has brought to the fishermen and residents in the coastal area and his anger and discontent with the Governments handling of this situation. He speaks frankly of the government corruption and sees them as sell outs to the Chinese Government which he believes is the enemy of his people and should close down their factory in Vietnam for the good of future generations. This man is a good example of a proud and brave people who are willing to sacrifice for the best of and future of their nation. I was hesitant to post this video for fear of the punishment by the Vietnamese Government again’t this brave fisherman and the team of Vietnamese Environmentalists who created this video and asked me to publish it so that people in the West would know of this tradgedy that occurred in 2016 in Vietnam.
This video is 6 minutes long and well worth a watch.

Paradise within a hell
Reason And Love Survive
Note: The inspiration for this poem came to me while watch the Documentary called, Farmlands which is about a town in South Africa inhabited by only White Afrikaners. It was a fine example of order and pride of ownership where the streets were clean and organized and people lived with unlocked doors in a nation gone mad with hatred and violence. I wrote it in the Haiku style of poetry and published it for the first time on my blog today, the 7th of July, 2018. It was meant to be a compliment to the preceding post of the documentary called Farmlands along with prior blog postings which give further information about what is happening in South Africa currently on a daily basis.

The below text was written by a Vietnamese Patriot.
A tribute to: Nguyen Ngoc Nhu Quynh
This is a great mother in my country Vietnam,who sacraficed her life in the jail of the puppet government in our country whe she's trying to warn us about Chinese industry chemical poisoning of the environment in our land . In Vietnam , we don't have any voice , don't have our freedom on the Internet. They are watching us , arresting the people who are suspected by the government if we talk about the Chinese in our land . In this land, if we are put in jail for resisting them. We absolutely 99% die or become invalid people. That government is not our government. It's a puppet of China communism
The below text was written by me.
Note: There is quite the uprising going on now in Vietnam. The Government is trying to put a lid on free speech and Internet freedom. There have been demonstrations, people arrested, beaten, the usual stuff in any nation when those in power are threatened. Just as in the west, our rights are disappearing quickly and new censorship laws are in place to silence any other than the party line. This has been especially fast in the EU (Evil Union). People are being banned from forums, fined and even jailed for speaking the truth about not so pleasant social issues. There has been a mass migration from Facebook to minds.com. Thousands are signing up every day. In effect it is a boycott of Facebook by the Vietnamese people.

Responsibilities - the danger of wanting to shirk them before having fulfilled the duties they impose upon us
It is not absolutely forbidden to leave a husband or a wife, but not before you have properly resolved the problem. Otherwise, you expose yourself to encountering an identical problem further down the road. This law holds true for all situations in life. We think that it is easy to cut ties, to break an agreement, to abandon a responsibility, but what might seem easy at first sight is in reality extremely difficult. And conversely, if you accept to face the difficulties, you will feel unsuspected energies awaken within you, and angelic beings will come to help you. If you choose the easy way, however, you will still have angels as companions, but of another kind: angels of justice.”

Each time you make a sacrifice, you light a fire. For example, when you decide to give up a bad habit, certain matter begins to be consumed within you, and it releases an energy that fuels your endeavour. Each sacrifice is a gift you give to yourself and in exchange, you receive purer energies that enable you to go further, higher. This is why sacrifice is a magical act thanks to which you have every opportunity to build something useful, beautiful and noble, not only in your own heart and soul, but in the heart and soul of all beings.”'

Edgar Cayce (1877-1945) has been called the "sleeping prophet," the "father of holistic medicine," and the most documented psychic of the 20th century. Cayce was born on a farm in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, in 1877, and his psychic abilities began to appear as early as his childhood. As an adult, Cayce would put himself into a state of meditation, connecting with the universal consciousness and from this state, came his "readings". From holistic health and the treatment of illness to dream interpretation and reincarnation, Cayce's readings and insights offer practical help and advice to individuals from all walks of life, even today.

Suffering - It teaches humans which guide they must follow.
You think I am cruel? No, it saddens me to say so, but humans need to suffer in order to understand. When a messenger from heaven appears – someone who can enlighten them on the direction to take – not only do they turn a deaf ear, but they often persecute them. And when a criminal comes along who will lead them to disaster, they welcome them, they cheer them on and carry them to power – it is they themselves who provide the criminal with the means to destroy them. So, it is clear: humans need to suffer in order to understand once and for all to whom they must listen and whom they should follow."

Physical and psychic discomforts - always present opportunities to work on ourselves.
I am not saying that you can cure all your pains by means of thought. But instead of always choosing the easy way to rid yourself of the smallest aches and pains through external means such as tablets, pills and so on, first call upon a spiritual element. Try working with light, love, harmony and purity. Then, not only might you free yourself from this slight inconvenience, but your whole being will benefit from it, because the work you do in this way not only affects one particular condition within you, but your entire physical and psychic body."

Divide yourself not
Then you will be distracted
Stay strong in yourSelf
© 2018 M.N. Hopkins
Note: This poem was inspired yesterday after first viweing a interview dealing with unatural, disharmonious sounds vs. the harrmonious and natural sounds in nature that can induce healing in the body then later that evening listening to a medium talk about not being distracted by cell phones and TV and to take time to listen to the sounds of nature to connect to what one’s Soul is telling you.
The first line of the poem came to me effortlessly as an insight while listening to the second man speaking and I played with different constellations of words for the second and third lines of this haiku poem. I finished it this morning and published it for the first time on my blog today, the 7th of June 2018.
When I write yourself, this refers to the ego self. When I write yourSelf, this refers to the Soul or Higher Self or that which is closer to the Divine.

Life is in our image, we see in it only what we carry within us. This is why one life is always different from another. People say ‘life’ and think they know what they are talking about, imagining that as all beings on earth are invested with life, they all live and feel the same way. Well no, when we say ‘life’, we each talk at our own level, according to our own degree of evolution, speaking only in terms of our own understanding and experience. But we do not know true life in all its magnitude, immensity and beauty, we can only draw close to it; and the more we restore our link with the world of soul and spirit, the closer we can get.”

Note: I have not taken this remedy myself but comes highly recommended from two sources that I believe to be reliable. As with any remedy, my advice would be to research it first before trying it.
The product used in the remedy is easily obtainable and inexpensive in the States. As to availability in Europe, Africa, South America or Oceania, I have no idea.

Note: I could not agree more. Beware of those who sell themselves or try to convince you that they are the only way to freedom or enlightenment. That person is seeking to fulfill their own ego needs and profit in their need for power, money or control over another. This is so common amongst spiritual people, shamans and light workers. I have seen people on their own path who were solid and self-reliant become emotionally weak and parroting words that are not their own.
Beware of the goo-gooru in gurus' clothing. Use your own discernment and trust in your own inner Light for consul.

I spent some time sitting by this big avocado tree and listening to its beautiful music.
It was quite windy so the sound of this video is not the best, but I decided to leave the original and not replace it with the recording of the music because I loved the sound of the birds as well.
This way you can have an idea of how pleasant this experience was :-)
More about the music of the plants here:
You can buy the full recording here:
The U1 device allows plants to produce sounds and to make music. It does so by measuring the electrical resistance of vegetable tissues and transducing it into a MIDI signal (Musical Instruments Digital Interface). The MIDI signal then controls a synthesizer that produces the actual sound.
