    and the other named Yuriy Volodymyrovych Levchenko exactly like the Svoboda candidate The one with the identical name is unemployed but apparently he did come up with the equivalent of a little more than 1 000 12 180 00 hr in order to be registered as required under the election law The opportunity for voter confusion is obvious This can only help Mr Pylypyshyn However the bizarre is not limited to electoral district 223 There are some 6 500 candidates running Ukraine wide 3 000 on 29 party lists and another 3 500 running in 213 single mandate districts Six candidates are named Darth Vader distinguished by five different patronymics Andriyovych Vasylovych Viktorovych Vitaliyovych Volodymyrovych Two have the patronymic Volodymyrovich Aside from the Internet party list which one heads the others are running in the 217 and 218 election district both in Kiev As to the two with the same patronymic one is listed as being nine years older than the other This display of the Ukrainian sense of humor is complicated by the fact that the Central Elections Commission has registered the six Darth Vaders as candidates and they are listed as such on the CEC Web site There is also a candidate named Yoda One can only assume that the necessary documentation was submitted and examined by the CEC I never met the aforesaid Viktor Petrovych Pylypyshyn But I did have an encounter with his people I have an apartment in the Shevchenko region which Pylypyshyn headed until his election to parliament last year I had contracted some renovations which involved moving a partition wall a few inches My contractor neglected to procure a permit The municipal authorities inspected and alerted me to this requirement I applied to the Shevchenko region and was told that there was no problem but I should pay them a few thousand dollars There was no ambiguity as to where the money would go I countered by suggesting that I pay a fine into the municipal treasury since I do not pay bribes The region people insisted on the bribe I refused The matter is still pending as it has been over the last eight years I have spent more than the requested bribe amount on attorneys I am still prepared to pay a fine Pylypyshyn is no longer in charge in the region yet nothing has changed A Kiev municipal election took place in May of this year Vitaly Klychko ostensibly runs Kiev now My attorneys referred this matter to the Kiev municipal authorities The response was that this problem would go away if I gave them some money They even suggested the amount similar to what the region people did previously The more things change in Ukraine the more they remain the same To use another cliche you really cannot make this up God I hope this next election makes a difference Although whether Pylypyshyn or Levchenko or Vader or Yoda is elected what s going to change People died on

  • ’The voice of Mother Earth’- talking to singer songwriter Peruquois
    it was devoted to taking people back into their genetic memory waking them up letting them know how this planet became the way it is why is humanity in such a mess what role have the gods goddesses why we keep making the same mistakes A very deep study of these eleven years led into understanding of how the humanity became the way it is why we were not in balance and harmony like the trees why was humanity the only thing on this planet out of balance When did you decide that eleven years were enough and you should move on For about six years we were touring together and quickly I went from being a student to being a teacher Because my gift was so strong and so raw with the voice when I asked the Mother show me how I can help through the ceremony she showed me She started to give me these chants songs that I would first share with my immediate community and everybody would start singing them That man was sharing his vision around the planet and we were touring in Europe Australia New Zealandover seven years So it wasn t like I was in the desert all this time I was going sometimes back to Australia very much having to have one foot in both worlds all the time I also ended up having a child with this man Then there came a time when it was too painful to live in two separate worlds and I had to let go I had to let go of this role of a student a mother of all of those roles I had played and allow my life to take on a new path Me and my daughter we returned full time to Australia Why was it important to keep feet in both worlds It was very essential for me to do that And he was a very good teacher We would be on stage at a festival in the workshop with a lot of people and then he would go Peru clean the toilets we need them clean There was never a sense that you are special because you have a gift The reality is that life asks this this and this at any given moment So he was a very good teacher for me I had to always keep one foot in both worlds So for me this mystical and spiritual world is not a separate one they are always intertwined But there came a time when I realized I could ve suffered the separation of being with a man and having to live on the other side of the planet for a lot of the time So I had to cut the ties and let go Does that mean you never see him talk to him No we had a great love between us so I kept up the communication I kept sending my daughter too when I was on tour But he s passed away now two years ago How old is your daughter She is fourteen a teenager I really wanted to keep her connection to that side the roots you know So she would fly there often on her own They kept a very strong relationship So I think there was an understanding very much between us that we had to let go of each other It was a very clean separation Shortly after that maybe a year or so another man came into my life And he was also a spiritual teacher It took me on a whole different journey He was so much what I was searching for Because in a way what I have done with the medicine man through a lot of rituals and ceremonies I d come to understand how a woman was to open up to the earth and how to live together with sisters with other women I ve learned enormous amounts about this But when the next man came into my life it was to experience the cosmos In the feminine nature there is this mother the feminine spirit If you go deeper and follow her you get to the Great Mother Cosmic mother It s this energy that formless blackness that goes down it s like a black hole that goes in and out So I was very ready to experience that Later I understood that I am her So through all this time I had been praying speaking and it s that paradoxical place I am Her and She is Me Yet she is herself and I am myself So it was very direct So for those years that we were together I spent a lot of time in a cosmic place with my whole body experiencing a lot of dissolving as if I was a walking gate of a vortex Sometimes I would be sitting back in a chair and the energy would just flow through that chair falling out of my body I could feel it so much and it was so much bigger than me actually physically So that was what the next man brought to me And yet you separated over time and again it was a clean cut After about four years it was very clear to me that all this love that we had shared was complete And we let go Then I was on my own for a few years In that time because I had let go what this love has brought me was the eternal love that eternal beloved eternal lovingness inside the human being In different traditions they give it a different name The beloved the Friend God Universe Really this energy isn t a figurehead but it s a universal lover a universal intelligence So that s really what this man had brought me to And I had to sit with that for a few years and learn to move in the world as that So I
