Anastasia's Prophecy


Anastasia, The Super Sleuth, Says

Updated: June 11, 2017

The importance of "My Prophecy" for the era we are presently living in; the era of "Trump and Team in the White House" is that this prophecy of mine, that grew out of the Watergate break-in, has served as a life-long assignment. The basis of the assignment; my "call to adventure" as Joseph Campbell described it, was built upon my needing to answer for myself -- and -- then carry back into the nation's capital, the following two questions.


Question #1 was:
How could the President of the United States of America lie to the American people?

Question #2 was:

How could so many people believe this lying president, or seem to?

As a result of the prophecy and how I chose to respond to it, I created a quest to find the answers to the questions. This quest became the center, outside of my family, of my life and thus my life's work.

The culmination of the quest; again, according to Joseph Campbell, is the hero's return with the golden challis; in my case, as I see it, is my return to the Washington, D.C. fast track that I left at the time of Watergate with the answers to those two questions and a message regarding what to do with my findings. That effort is now unfolding; long time coming.

What you are reading on this blog and my other two: Anastasia The Storyteller, Exploring Your Dark Side: The Adventure of A Lifetime and the New Horizons Small "Zones of Peace" Project, present what I have learned. Thus, you might say, the collection is my answer to this life-long quest, to the best of my ability.

"My Prophecy" was a miracle that has guided my entire adult life! 

A significant part of that miracle is that it became the Light that brought about the creation of New Horizons Small "Zones of Peace" Project. I wish I could pull you into my mind and my heart and the weave they have with the journey of my soul so that you could "see" first hand just what my story looks like.

Sometimes I have thought, along with some of my supporters and devotees, that my story would make a fine movie. Especially the part about blindness making a shaman out of me. And the part I am trying to write about in Hot Pants, Motorcycles And K Street mss. But there are so many others like myself; products of the sixties, whose adventures in living full face to the front of whatever adventure one is called to pursue.

Besides writing books -- and -- blogs takes a great deal of time. And, I am learning, these days, to enjoy coming down from the solitude of my mountain into the city, Frederick City, that is, and mingle with the people. That cuts into my writing time. So I must just simply do as best I can.

Nonetheless, in my case, the reality of my prophecy experience, among innumerable other occurrences, has helped me believe that there has been and will continue to be an intrinsic relationship, between the challenges I have experienced with my eyesight and the ability I have developed to have a unique visionary perspective about American society and politics. 

As a result, I believe I "see" what is occurring now with a heightened vision, beyond the ordinary.This proclivity, combined with my professional training has gives me a unique window on the world.

.
Note: September 26, 2016. On the eve of the first presidential candidates debate, I pray that the wisdom and expertise I have gained as a result of the quest I have been on can serve our country at this desperately critical and challenging time. The "Making Violence Obsolete" project and its companion  the Counterculture Community Development Experiment, are my best offerings for now out of these gifts.

If you are reading this and are inspired by what I am sharing, please use me, especially at this critical time!

May we all come through this time safe and secure and be able to realize a healthy and prosperous future.


On August 7, 1974
The day before Nixon resigned as president due to the Watergate break-in scandal.

Wikipedia defines “prophecy” as a statement that something will happen in the future or the power or ability to know what will happen in the future. This definition fits with what occurred for me on August 7, 1974, the day before Nixon resigned his presidency as a result of the Watergate scandal. The evidence of what this affair brought into my life is what has happened since.

The “instructions” of my prophecy came to me while I was lying on a gurney in an operating recovery room,  having just come out of surgery for a corneal transplant. The transplant was to be successful. It was my fourth transplant. The other three had failed by rejection but this one would serve me well for close to twenty-five years, only to reject in the heat of another presidential scandal; the Clinton-Lewinsky affair.

Now isn't that interesting!

The coincidence of that that circumstance, alone, might alert you to the significance for me regarding Watergate and what was to become my life-long passion; transforming the Dark Side in Amercan society and politics.

My prophecy, as I understand it today, was a “call to adventure” (my adventure of a lifetime). It directed me to answer two  questions --

Question #1 was:
How could the President of the United States of America lie to the American people?

Question #2 was:
How could so many people believe this lying president, or seem to?

It has been more than forty years now since the day of that prophecy. And the prophecy and my dedication to following it has defined the course of my life!

My Prophecy came in the form of a voice that seems, to this day, only to have come from a Higher Source beyond me, or did it? It was accompanied by a hazy image of an entity,

The voice instructed me as follows. “Your instruction/mission/assignment is -- 

  • Find the answer to your two questions. Then -- 
  • Bring the answers back to the nation’s capital, as well as the entire nation, to the best of your ability when you have them;
  • Share freely all that you learn -- about the Dark Side of politics and society -- with others and how to transform it to its Higher Good for the sake of this nation;
  • Then fully accept and enjoy that which you have come to "see" and  know about both “analyzing and solving the problem.” 
  • This is your pot of gold!
The challenge has been -- and still is -- that “knowing” the answers to my questions and “doing/applying solutions” are not the same. 

The latter, application of knowledge in this case, as it turns out, is totally a “we” thing. 

Yet even when I know that this "we" thing might need to begin with me, I falter, still afraid as I was as a child to speak truth to power. Oh dear. Oh dear. But I am working on it.

I believe, however, that among the many miracles that have allowed me to carry out the instructions of "My Prophecy" is that a Divine Power Greater Than Me brought me a metaphorical goose, named Martin G. Groder,M.D. to teach and guide me as to how to transform it to its higher good. Can you imagine how grand that is; to be confident and certain that I possess this know how?

Marty was a Transactional Analysis (TA) trained psychiatrist and my mentor for many years. According to my personal myth, as a result of my having been given this prophecy -- and the seeking it presaged, I eventually, serendipitously, found my way to Marty. Marty bequeathed upon me a golden egg that he had laid. What a goose!

Later another mentor, Murat Yagan, came, also serendipitously, into my life. You can read, if you choose, of the Miracles Murat inspired in Murat’s Ahmsta Kebzeh: The Universal Science of Awe, Volume II. 

Sue deVeer, my collaborator in New Horizons’ Small “Zones of Peace” Project, and I contributed an article to Murat’s book on this wonderment. It is posted on our blog site.  Many other articles about Murat as New Horizons’ community development mentor and my personal spiritual mentor are also published there.

Our contribution to the book will give you an overview of Murat’s vast influence on New Horizons and myself. However, almost nothing has been written about Marty’s other than in my three unpublished Random House books. (i.e. Anastasia’s “Random House Trilogy.”)

The presence of both Marty and Murat in my life during two very distinct phases of my adventure, are, probably the most significant, life-changing Miracles that came to me as I made my way on my journey. However, what I am writing now about My Prophecy is not about either of them. It is primarily about ME!

I have been faulted in the past, especially by Cheryl Woodruff, my former editor at Random House, for writing too much about Marty’s influence on my work and too little of my own. The telling of My Prophecy in the coming days, weeks, months and years will, hopefully, bring me to a better balance in this regard.

Now, if you believe in magic and miracles, continue on to hear my tale. It will come out as complete as I can make it, sooner or later.

My immediate task, however, is to pass on to you what I have already learned and come to know. 

Making clear, as I do, how we can, together, use this to help make a glorious soufflé of the days of our lives -- and -- a legacy to pass on to those who come after.

This is in alignment with the instructions of my prophecy.

Read the stories on my two blog sites, Anastasia The Storyteller and the New Horizons Small “Zones of Peace” Project, the web site of “old” New Horizons. On the latter, I particularly recommend that you survey the press releases, especially the main one about Murat and New Horizons.  
Also, listen to my two radio shows to find innumerable postings and articles that are parts of the whole of my adventure to date. The Anastasia The Storyteller Radio Show  offers Hot Pants, Motorcycles and K Street related stories. The Possible Society In Motion Radio Show offers a more philosophical perspective, focusing on society and politics.

I, also, suggest that you read the lovely feature article my dear friend, G.M. Corrigan, wrote about me several years ago.

“Finding Light In The Darkness”

 

Still, you will not be able to fully grasp the monumental landscape I have traversed over the past forty plus years. Yet what I am offering can certainly pave the way for a shared adventure from here forth should you wish to join me.

I have already discovered that many Possible Human, Possible Society Study participants are of a like-mind with me and are already, directly or indirectly, having their own adventures. Storytelling is one of the best vehicles for our sharing our adventures.  I love doing the interviews for the study because they bring us more closely together. Storytelling often rules the interview process. It is certainly the most fun for me!

These pages here are, obviously, about “my story.” Your stories are also important. I hope mine will inspire yours. If you are not already in our study, I hope you will want to establish this kind of exchange with me. It is open, generally, only to study participants. 

To become a Possible Human, Possible Study participant, contact me at:

Beyond these platforms and others yet to emerge, it will take me the four hundred and fifty pages I have outlined to recount my story in my “in progress”  memoir, Hot Pants, Motorcycles and K Street: In The Era Before Watergate,.

Yet, regardless of anything I might write or otherwise recount or exchange, the tale of my adventure will still remain incomplete.  After all, it has: a} now been close to 15,000 days since the prophecy came; and b} in summary the tale is only my version of an adventure purposely pursued for forty years. There were many other actors in the play. Thus there are many other versions than my own, at least for certain .segments.

Hopefully, however,  in offering my account, at the very least, the enigma I have appeared to others, since early on will be a little less perplexing.  And, that which I can uniquely offer will be a great deal more available for benefit.

I realize that the riddle of who and what I am truly has been troublesome for some, particularly my children. And, for that I am sorry. 

To others I have been, admittedly a treasure trove, seemingly open for exploration, as if I might even be available as entertainment. That is if one could only get hold of the key. Oftentimes this has been problematic for me. I hope it will be less so in the future.

Together we can enhance our shared vision and co-create that “possible society in motion” for which many of us yearn.
