Just as they were nearing Vicksburg, the Simplex passed them by and a few min- utes later Ralph Hamlin whizzed by in the air-cooled Franklin. By this time Bill and Fowler thought they might be able to get by with just pulling off the trail only a few feet. They were right; the horses never even batted an eye as the remaining autos raced by. Out on the course east of Wenden a fierce windstorm suddenly kicked up, blowing sharp sand into the goggled faces of the drivers. By the time the autos approached Wickenburg and the Hassayampa River, the storm had turned into a driving rain- ANTENNAS that work in the Quartzsite area! Tyson Wells Center Space #5 • 121 W. Kuehn 302-531-6401 storm causing the normally calm river to become a raging torrent. Unlike the Colo- rado, there wasn't a ferry across the Has- sayampa, and Hamlin's Franklin auto was in the lead. But it was the White Steamer with its much higher center of gravity and larger wheels that plunged in and then roared on into Phoenix ultimately winning the race in the remarkable time of just over 19 hours, averaging around 25 miles per hour. The Franklin came in second even though back before they had crossed the Colorado River it had broke an axle and Hamlin had to have a new one sent out from Los Angeles. The auto race to the first Arizona State Fair achieved its purpose as more of the citizens of the new State of Arizona, in- cluding beautiful ladies were parking their buckboards in favor of one of those fancy new automobiles and began in earnest to lobby the new state government in estab- lishing more roads.

Our victory was sweet as it was the first time our opponent had ever lost. We won because we used "whole brain activism." We combined both sides of the brain, with spiritual connection. Imagine how our earth will change as a fully balanced whole brain awakens in all of us. There are so many things today that cause humanity to be very afraid of our future. Hope erases fear as we welcome this change. We could all use some more "wins" in life. There is a way to help activate this change through whole brain exercises. The brain and the heart are both muscles, which grow stronger and brighter with practice. When you are using both sides of the brain you gain more clarity. Utilizing only one side of your brain can blind you from see- ing the whole picture. Drawing the figure 8 over and over again activates both sides of the brain. As you are drawing, imagine both sides of your brain lighting up, like turning on light bulbs and this will increase your brain activity. Years ago my daughter suffered from a serious brain injury when she tripped on a cardboard box behind her in her high heels, hitting her head first on a counter then on the cement floor. In her recovery process, she used the figure eight technique and everyday crawled across the floor many times back and forth. Just like it is important for a baby to crawl in order to increase his/her learning ability toward reading, crawling stimulated her brain neu- rons to fire up. I also made her an imagery audiotape to listen to everyday, which in- vited her to imagine the left side transmit- ters, crossing over to the right side and the right side transmitters, crossing over to the left side. She had a complete healing. I have heard Grandmother Agnes Baker Pilgrim (one of the Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers) tell a person to take the 14-inch journey to their heart when she notices that they are just using their ana- lytical mind. I have also seen her point to her head and say: "God gave you a brain to use" when she sees they are just using their heart and emotion. As we awaken in this new era, let us begin by becoming more balanced as healthy whole brains and see the world with new eyes. It has been said by the Dalai Lama, "The world will be saved by the western women." As a western woman, I have pondered the Dalai Lama statement. Asking my self February 15, 2012 how will we do this? My first thought is my sense of gratitude to have been blessed with liberties, which my sisters around the world have not had. We have had the right to vote since 1918 and the freedom to ex- plore an era of feminism in trying to have the same equal rights as men. We awak- ened our masculine side and created a dis- owning of our feminine side. Progress was made, but even wearing pants and doing what was once classified, as men's jobs did not give us what we were longing for, which was respect and a sense of worthiness. We discovered that leaving our homes and families was not so healthy. Time for con- necting with family, nature, Divine, and being creative had been replaced with an overwhelming amount of stress. Stress awakened our spiritual desire and quest for inner healing and self- improvement. The roots of our ancestors Native Americans who lived on the very soil, in which we live, stated calling us. Indigenous wisdom, bal- ance and love became the western women's new goal. She re-examined and re-com- mitted with her personal spiritual beliefs, while at the same time honoring her sisters' beliefs to be as valid as her own. Western women are a collection of all col- ors and all beliefs yet we join together for truth to prevail and unshakable faith to be found. We returned full circle back to our natural feminine nature. This time embrac- ing the wise woman within and our beauty will not fade but only become brighter. If we are to save the world it will be through the power of love. The wise man is awaking in men as well! We have all been evolving together. All humans are feminine and masculine to a degree. We now understand to disown or disrespect one side of our nature can cause us to lose touch with what is important in life. This is the era of awaking to a balance of both sides of our nature, which creates a loving balanced whole brain society. Take the whole brain challenge and follow the steps below. Answer this question: How Do We Bridge the Gap from Poverty to Prosperity in 2012? The first step begins with perception in the eye of the beholder. How we view pov- erty and prosperity. What makes a person rich, what makes them poor? The second step is what do we really want? What would really make us happy? If we have a hard time knowing what we really want, then ask what is it that we really do not want? The third step is the key for evolutionary change, verses ending up back with the same problems we were intending on cor- recting. Look at all our answers and ask will this be good for all humanity and the next seven generations? Are we serving the whole or the "I"?
