World Elder Abuse Awareness Day

Dear Peace Officer Travis Marvin,

I found our conversation extremely enlightening...especially concerning future systems of empowerment for our elders.

Sometimes I wish that there was a 'breath analyzer test' for people to check their sanity or well being level. It is a difficult situation dealing with DEMANDING overpowering people. If you check out the symptoms of people who are in abusive relationships you'll see the behaviors you experienced today.

What did WE learn? Peace is an extremely important component to the well being of people and families, communities, states and nations. Twenty-five years ago I was blessed to be a part of The Great Peace March with a nine month walk across America...doing research for an art show concerning 'peace.' Over the past twenty-five years I have mastered the art of peace via the art of meditation, contemplation and prayer. What I learned today from you, Officer Marvin, is that I would love to teach all the very simple methods of knowing the art of peace to all the Linn County Triad Peace Officer members. Knowing and experiencing the well being or BALANCE of oneself is probably the number three art that a police officer should know...after the art of listening and the art of Ki Maah. BALANCING your left and right brain hemispheres with a BALANCE of being within your heart centered (528) chakra or mind. With balancing of your beta, alpha, delta and theta brain waves in BALANCE of your negative/positive archetypal unconscious/conscious awareness level. Once a certain degree of BALANCE is achieved, one's intuitive geniusness starts to be in control of the ultimate well being of the harmonic play of all 100 trillion of your bodies cells within an integrated holistic healthy happy ATTITUDE. I would love to share ALL that I know to pass on my knowledge of the art of PEACE, I guess it is the best thing WE have to test or check the sanity or well being of another, at this point in time.

My PROTEST ACTION for World Elder Abuse Awareness Day was short lived at 900 17th ave Marion Iowa. You believed I was causing a disturbance. I guarantee, my mother my advocate is EXTREMELY disturbed over the sale of her home and her belongings. But lets LISTEN to the abuser instead of the most amazingly brilliant mom that I know WITH DEMENTIA. Mom is a genius, functioning primarily from her left brain heart centered reality. Although that perspective isn't highly regarded much in our left brain left brain centered's reality is the GOAL of many highly evolved spiritual states of consciousness individuals. She is definitely my greatest GURU and that is with dementia.

So, Peace Officer Marvin....where do WE go from here? I am here TO LISTEN TO the world's greatest mom. It keeps me up at night, it keeps me aware of my dreams, It is extremely challenging. It is the moment to moment dance with my mom and my consciousness in an amazing integral playful dance with the creator.

900 17th Ave is the address on my drivers license. It has been my family home all my life. My mother has asked me if i want the home time and time and time again. My mother has asked me again and again and again if there is anything in the house I want, if so take it.
The house has been home and the storage for my priceless art masterpieces and the thousands of artworks that I have put a price on. When my sister had the house locks changed and then I was DEMANDED to get my "stuff" out of my home in less than twenty four hours (while heading out of town for a family reunion) and then waiting to hear back from a Realtor to open the door and hear nothing...yes, I broke into my home for my things.....and yes, if I could have stolen all my moms things FOR HER I would have. Seeing her personal things in a dumpster and her generations of treasures sold off to strangers for a pittance of money that means nothing to her....being MOM'S ADVOCATE isn't was an amazing teacher at BEING MY LIFE LONG ADVOCATE ....I am still learning from her the art of it all.....she is an amazing blessing of the most beautiful intelligent genius miraculous mother. Dealing with decades of abusive patterns can be challenging....seeing the beauty of mom's soul is all encompassing.

Peace Officer Marvin, I hope you will consider being an ADVOCATE for an elder. I am hoping to create The Council of Elders in every town in America and around the world. The elder abuse rate is nearing 100 percent in our culture....I believe it is time to transform and change into a civilization that treats all our elders with the up most respect and dignity and that WE all LISTEN to their Dream BIG Dreams til death do us part.

Thanks for being a PEACE is a noble profession as there is so much to teach and share. I will be moving my World Elder Abuse Awareness Day PROTEST ACTION to another corner of the planet.

Happy happy happy day.
