Am I Baba’s Heir Apparent?

gregj4 gregj5 gregjp2 gregpp3 haz14

I met Dottie Witherspoon in Boston. We drove down to South Carolina to meet her family and sell her car so we could move to California. We drove the Camero to Baba’s retreat in Myrtle Beach. At the entrance, Kitty Davy came out to greet us. She asked our names. When Dottie gave her name, Kitty lit up!

“Oh! You’re a descendant of John Knox and the Signer, John Witherspoon!”

Kitty went blank when I gave her my name, and, I am looking at my lover, wondering why she was traveling incognito. Dottie is kin to the actress, REESE Witherspoon. Her mother is a Reese, possibly kin to David Tasker Reese, the signer of the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence. It appears the Rhys-Reese family begat the Windsor Royalty that sits on the Throne of England. John Knox married a Stuart, and the Witherspoons are kin to the Stewarts another way, and thus, Diana Spencer and her sons. I am kin to the Witherspoons via the Benton – and the Reese family!

“You didn’t tell me you were America royalty!”

What I am suggesting, is, that when We Americans declared our independence, the Rhys Royalty of Wales – came over – and if we so desire, we can have our own Royal Pomp and Circumstance, where I, a Baba look-alike, ride around in a gold carriage with a famous acttress – waving to our adoring crowd!

That’s me up a tree with our cat in Boston. Dottie is Scott-Irish, a redhead with freckles. Because Donald and George destroyed our democratic way of life in order to bring “God’s gift of liberty to the Iraqi people” we may have to start over – form the top! We will need a new National Deity because Bush was pushed to going on Crusade by Christian leaders, which is the say, these leaders rendered Jesus a – BIG LOSER! Thanks, George!

From Genealogy of the Reese Family by Miss Mary E. Reese

The Reese home place was not far from present day Charlotte, North Carolina. A description of the building was given by one of the grandsons of David Reese as follows: “plain, comfortable weather-boarded building, one and a half stories high, having four large rooms and two attic rooms, with dormer windows, besides two rooms in the cellar, one of which was used as a dining room. At each gable end were immense rock chimneys, the long piazza in front, with a trellis covered with roses at either end. The house was surrounded by majestic

oaks, under which hung the inviting swing on one side; on the other was a long row of beegums.” “The floors were waxed, and the furniture, some pieces of which were brought from Wales, was polished like glass. Quaint rag carpets of the brightest hues coved the floors in winter, except in the drawing-room the floor was coved with a bought carpet. The flower garden was bright with all the old-fashioned flowers. The walks were board with sweet pinks. In the rear of the house was the big spring, with its clear, cold water, hard by the brick spring house,

where the milk and butter was kept. On the roadside Stood the old sweep well, where the the weary traveler refreshed himself and beast it was considered one of the finest places in Mecklenburg County.”

Being a “Born Statesman,” David was to become a prominent man in North Carolina politics and in his church. He was well educated for his day. David was described as commanding in appearance, fine-looking with bright black eyes. He was chosen one of the bench of Poplar Tent Presbyterian Church elders in 1751, a position he held until his death. He also served for many years as a magistrate and member of the County, Court. His greatest claim to fame was that he was a signer of the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence of 20 May 1775. According to the Historian Foote, all the 270

delegates to the Mecklenburg Convention were Presbyterians, and ten were officers in the church.

  1. Reblogged this on Rosamond Press and commented:

    Three days ago i solved the riddle of the Crown of Thorns, and, an apex of history where God would want to intervene – because the well-being of the world was at stake. God did not just want to build a bridge of heaven, which is the only thing His alleged son – did? Was Jesus a earthly king? Baba did a intervention – claiming he was God. Did he – fail once again? Was Meher Baba Jesus and Mohammed?

    haz16This is my favorite photo of Meher Baba who did say he was Jesus. This is why I strive not to judge my new friend, Prince Adagio, who is quite ‘The Lady’s Man’ too.

    I was a follower of Meher Baba when I rescued Rena Easton. Our spiritual work together is vast. Sometimes I wonder if I am God Incarnate. The work I am going is coming to completion. God has a vision for Meg Whitman.

    At one point, Meher Baba told the group not to expect any discourse from him that day. “In Los Angeles,” said Meher Baba, “there was no time for you all to sit near me as you are doing today, for so many people came there and I was so busy. Therefore, I wanted to have a free day here.”

    Just as the sun was setting, Meher Baba got ready to leave. He asked Agnes to drive him back the longer coast route. On the way, Meher Baba mentioned that he thoroughly enjoyed the sparkling blue Pacific Ocean.

    When Meher Baba arrived back at the Roosevelt Hotel, he waved to his lovers before stepping into the elevator and retiring for the night. The next morning, he flew to San Francisco.
