From The Desk Of Joe Rumbolo October 2005
In Memory Of
Salvatore J. "Sam" Rumbolo
May 5, 1923 - October 2, 2005
On Sunday October 2, 2005, my wonderful dad, Sam Rumbolo, peacefully made his transition. He was 82 years, 4 months and 27 days old and had no idea that he would live that long in this lifetime. He was the eldest of three sons born to Sicilian immigrant parents.
He had been in declining health during the past several years but each time he had a medical episode, he would bounce back, although recently, not quite back to where he had been before. Those times, it was not his time to leave. He knew he still had work to do, so he stayed until he felt it was complete…and so it is.
A couple of weeks before his passing, I was visiting him in the hospital and we were talking. He said to me, "I've lived a good life and whatever happens next is what happens next." He was facing some severe medical treatments and he knew there was a strong possibility that he would not make it this time. I felt it too, although I remained optimistic; after all, he had always been resilient. He went on to make sure I knew where I could find "this key" and "that stack of paperwork," insurance policies, automobile titles, banking and investment information, etc. He was preparing himself and making sure that we were also prepared. He said, "Call your brother and tell him what's happening and keep an eye on your mother." He always wanted to make sure that mom was okay. He loved, respected, appreciated and cherished her.
I had seen him the night before he made his transition and we talked as he ate dinner. He was in good spirits although I knew that he was tired and weak, the result of the treatments. As I was leaving about 7:00 p.m. that evening, he again said, "Keep an eye on your mother." I told him that I would and that I would see him the next day. After having been with him most of the day until just before I arrived, my mom spoke to him by telephone about 8:00 p.m. that evening, as he was preparing to get into bed. He seemed fine.
Early the next morning, the call came from his doctor saying that he had taken a turn for the worse and he wanted to know if my dad should be resuscitated, should the need arise. I told him, "No. That's not what my dad would want." You see, that was not his style. He had chosen to stay here, but only on his terms…only if he could have the quality of life that he wanted…only if he could get up in the morning, get in his car, drive to the Italian section of town called "the Hill" and have coffee and conversation with his friends…only if he could take my mom out to dinner once or twice a week…only if he could play with his only grandchild, my brother's 8 year old daughter…only if he could enjoy family and friends and do the things he wanted to do…only if he could do things for himself and without appearing to be what he perceived would be a burden on anyone. Mentally, emotionally and spiritually, he was in a marvelous space. It was his body that was tired, worn out and not able to continue so he chose to leave.
In November of 1948 when I was less than 2 months old, he and his middle brother, Carlo, went into business for themselves…Rumbolo's Market…retail and wholesale groceries and meats…on "the Hill" and thus, he established his forum for some 37 plus years. This was not only a place where people could come to buy food for their tables, it also became a gathering place and a place where newly arrived immigrants from Sicily and Italy would come for orientation about life in the U.S. The children of those immigrants (especially the boys) would come for what we now call mentoring and coaching, from both my dad and uncle. They didn't know anything about this mentoring and coaching stuff. They were just trying to help people and that's the way my dad lived his life. He was a kind, caring, gentle, loving man. There are many people who have horror stories of their childhood but my brother and I did well in choosing each other and our parents. Our lessons were still presented to us, but in a different way. Whether our dad and mom agreed with our choices or not, we were always supported in those choices.
During the past 20 or 30 years, many people constantly speak of trying to discover their purpose and passion so they can then live their purpose and passion and create their financial abundance by living and working in their purpose and passion. Many of those same people become sidetracked, stuck and even paralyzed in trying to figure out what their purpose and passion is, thinking that it all needs to "look a certain way" before they can begin to "do the work" of making a grand difference in the world. On one hand, this is very sad. On the other hand, it is quite amusing.
Sam Rumbolo never thought about this. He didn't have to because he had an inner knowing that he probably could not verbalize. His Purpose and Passion was People and his backdrop/forum was his business…the gathering place. HE JUST KNEW, and so, he lived his life making a difference with each person whose life he touched moment-to-moment, everyday. In some 82 plus years, he touched a multitude of lives. He did not have to write books, teach classes, lecture or anything of such high profile or grand design. All he had to do was just be who he was and live his life…and that is exactly what he did.
In 1985, less than a year after his brother and partner had made his transition at the age of almost 59 years old, my dad had an opportunity to sell the business. He was not yet 62 and for a man who never thought he would be able to comfortably retire, he was left with nothing to do. During the time that he owned the business, he never took any real vacations, perhaps 2 or 3 days at a time. Knowing that my mom would like to travel, he spent the next 5 years taking her on cruises and trips of her choosing.
In 1990, after 17 or so years in the music business, first as a performer and then working in the business end of the business, I left the music scene and went into business, an Italian Deli On "the Hill." My dad was in his glory as it provided a new forum for him…and for me. For the next almost 13 years, he held court almost everyday, except for when he would take my mom on a trip. I was blessed with the magnificent opportunity to not only get to know him better as a father but also as a man and as a person. This man just "blew me away" on a daily basis with his knowledge, wisdom and his kind, gentle and loving approach to life. He was the most patient man I have ever met. I very rarely saw him angry. There were times when a person might say or do something that I felt was unwarranted or unfair to him and it would just piss me off. I would tell him how I felt and he would tell me to just let it go and that it wasn't worth it to get upset. In this day and age of communication, communication, communication, he would quote his father in saying that SOMETIMES, THE MOST POWERFUL WORD IS THE WORD THAT IS NOT SPOKEN, which meant, don't say something that you will regret. Let it go and when the time is right, the door will open and you will calmly and peacefully have the opportunity to say what needs to be said and you will have a better chance of being heard. These were the powerful words from my dad, the seemingly "uneducated" business man, wise man and philosopher!
As a little boy growing up on "the Hill," as a teenager, as a soldier in the army in World War II serving in the Philippines, as a young man married at the age of 24 and then going into business, he had no idea that he would do and accomplish the things that he did in his life. Near the end, he did begin to realize it, knowing that he did live a good life, as he said.
The Visitation, Funeral and Mass were celebrations of the life of the magnificent husband, father, grandfather, uncle, friend, mentor and coach that he was; again, the eldest of 3 sons of Sicilian immigrants; loved, respected and appreciated by all; a man who did not have a high school diploma, was not an avid reader of books, yet owned his own business and who possessed knowledge and most importantly, Wisdom, which he selflessly and humbly shared with anyone who asked.
In the moment of his passing to the other side, the cosmic party hats were donned, the corks were popped from the bottles of celestial champagne, the confetti was thrown, the noisemakers and horns were sounded and he was greeted with an angelic standing ovation for a job well done.
Dad, you were an extraordinary man. I already miss you in the physical and I know you are still here with me…and still here with all of us. I can feel you calmly and peacefully "working your magic." I am proud to be your son.
Thank You…Thank You…Thank You…
During the last few days of his life, there was talk at the hospital of the possibility of him going home on Sunday and continuing his treatments as an outpatient. With the way the medical insurance system is set up in this country, the companies are always trying to have people leave the hospital at the earliest possible moment. The more talk there was of this, the more his doctors insisted that he was not ready.
He, indeed, did go home on that Sunday. The talk was right on target, however, the destination was incorrect. Instead of going home to his house, he went HOME!
At 2:45 p.m. on Sunday October 2, 2005, he peacefully and painlessly stopped breathing and stepped into the next room, on the other side of the veil, leaving behind a legacy of which only movies and dreams are made.
I love you, dad.
I had already written the commentary for October when my dad made his transition. I thought for a moment that I would just stay with it but that didn't really resonate with me. Instead, I have written this piece in his memory, to tell you what a great man he was and as part of my healing process, but most importantly, to show you that "this work" of making a difference in people's lives that we all speak of does not have to look a certain way. No matter where we are, what we're doing or what our job or career path may be, we can still do "this work" if we so choose. You can make it your career and derive your financial abundance from it, or not. There is no right way and no wrong way. My dad proved it. Just do it, moment to moment, as a way of life.
Thank you for allowing me to share this with you.

THE CLEAR VIBRATION™ October 2005 Installment # 32
Dearest Warriors Of The Light…
WE ARE ONE and we are honored to be in the company of the magnificence that is you, in this extraordinary moment of NOW! There is so much information for us to impart to you at this time. Joe, our partner, feels as though the information is "backing up" on him. As one thought-group is interpreted, we drop five more thought-groups in his lap. Know that each group will be communicated to you when it is time.
So, in this moment of NOW, we continue with:
WHAT ARE YOU PRETENDING NOT TO KNOW?
Indeed, What Are You Pretending Not To Know? As many of you already know, unless this is your first exposure to this information from any of our partners, you have chosen to play this game called The Planet Earth Project. To play this game, you have chosen to forget everything that you know, including and especially who you truly are, then to remember as much as you can. You have each, in your own ways, done a marvelous job. Your results can be seen not only by all of us but by all of you, too, if you will but only allow yourselves to see them. Your results can be felt not only across what appears to be the vast reaches of the Universe but by many of you as well, although physically and emotionally, there are times when what you feel, feels like you are walking through hell!
Ask yourself this question:
WHAT AM I PRETENDING NOT TO KNOW?
Now, as we continue on, just sit with this question. Do not think about it. Just sit with it. The seed has been planted and if you really want the answer just allow it to come to you...and it will.
Your Cover Story
Each one of you has a cover story, a story that you tell others about yourself informing them of who you want them to think you are. The story is usually a convincing lie that you tell to your human self and you are such masters at spinning a yarn, that you actually believe your own fairytale. It is important that you believe it yourself so that you even have a chance of convincing others and occasionally, you do.
The story can be anything. For example, it could be about what a wonderful job you have, how successful you are, how much money you make, the house you own, the car you drive, the trophy significant other (or insignificant other, as the case may be!) hanging on your arm, etc. In and of themselves, none of these things is good or bad, right or wrong. What matters is your intent, but one would usually spin such a tale to try to impress others and attempt to fool them into thinking that this is who you are. In this story, you can actually have these things or not. It does not matter. You do this to attempt to mask the hurt, pain and insecurities you are suffering deep down inside yourself. You have convinced yourself that these things are what are important in life. Again, having these things is not bad or wrong. What matters is why you want them. Is it because you feel that you deserve to have them and want to encourage others by your example that they too, deserve to have what they want, or is it because you need a drug to further numb yourself?
Another example would be a story about how poor you are (and there are people who claim to be financially poor who have all the money they will ever need), what you do not have, your unsuccessful relationships, jobs, education, about the fact that you always have bad luck, nobody loves you, everyone picks on you and treats you badly, how you are such a giver…you give and give to people and no one ever gives back to you…and on and on and on. This is the poor me story, the martyr syndrome. In this scenario, you are looking for the attention and sympathy of others to feel sorry for you, to soothe your pain, hurt, insecurities and suffering.
Yet another story could be about how spiritual you are…how spiritually evolved you…how you are so in the know about such things, how special you are and all with an attitude of: Don't worry my child. I have all this knowledge and you don't but I'll Show You The Way! That's my job. I'm a Lightworker and I take my job so seriously! It is important for you to feel important and especially to look important in the eyes of others. Again, you do this in an attempt to mask the hurt, pain and insecurities you are suffering deep down inside yourself.
Depending upon your intent, it is possible that these are lies…all lies. It is one thing to lie to someone else and attempt to convince him or her that your lies are true. It is quite another to lie to yourself and believe it! Usually, the only one that you can ultimately convince is YOU. The others can usually see right through you. LOL! The joke is on YOU!
It takes so much time and energy to create and impart this cover story that you might as well just tell the truth and use your time and energy to create what you really want.
Just know this: Everyone…EVERYONE…no matter who they are or what their station in life may be, has a COVER STORY, to one degree or another and if a person says that he/she does not have such a story, THAT, IN ITSELF, IS THE STORY! Even when you discover your Cover Story, confront it and dump it, you, more often than not, will create a new one, perhaps not as severe or intense, but a new one nonetheless.
Human…dispense with these stories and Claim Your Divinity!
So we ask you…WHAT ARE YOU PRETENDING NOT TO KNOW?
WHAT AM I PRETENDING NOT TO KNOW?
Much has been said and written about Human Angels and about how these Human Angels are in training to be real Angels, for a Second Planet Of Free Choice. Those of you who are familiar with these communications and the communications through others and even through yourselves may have noticed that we usually present information in such a way that is comprehendible to you, in your Human NOW. We tell you stories, use metaphors in our presentation, and spoon-feed the information to you, although the spoons are becoming much larger as you raise your vibration and the illusion of the veil thins.
Many of you already have questions about these stories and metaphors regarding Human Angels and have asked for some clarity, so we will first repeat the questions you have asked and then answer them.
Q & A With ONE
Q. So…Is there really a Second Planet Of Free Choice?
A. Yes, of course there is.
Q. Since there is a Second Planet Of Free Choice, then where is it?
A. You are standing on it!
Q. Standing on it? How could we be standing on it? The Universe is
A. Hey! Real estate is expensive. How large do you think our portfolio
Q. We didn't know you were on a budget! LOL! Okay, so…we're standing on the Second Planet Of Free Choice and we have been told that those of us who have committed to being Human Angels are in training to be Angels for the Second Planet Of Free Choice. What's the scoop? Are we in training for this mission, or not?
A. Well, yes and no. Did you like that answer?
Q. Great! That's what we love about this game! We're here hurting, suffering, getting beat up, beating ourselves up and trying hard to do our serious Lightwork and we're dealing with a bunch of jokesters, pranksters and comedians who laugh at everything and we're seeking guidance from this same bunch. Okay…so which is it…Yes or NO? Are we in training or not?
A. It is true that you are dealing with a bunch of jokesters, pranksters and comedians who laugh at everything and you do come to this group for guidance. We will now reveal the identity of this group to you. IT IS YOU…AND WE! WE ARE ONE, so you are talking to yourselves!
Q. Yeah, yeah…got it! WE ARE ONE. Now, what about the commitment to being Human Angels and being in training to be Angels for the Second Planet Of Free Choice? What about that?
A. How much training do you need? We said earlier that we adjust our presentations to your ability to comprehend in the moment. In a sense, you are in training but this training is an illusion. You/we created that so that the idea of being a real Angel would not scare you. Although many of you relish the idea of being Human Angels and eventually Angels, working your way up the ranks…Angel Second Class, such as Clarence in your motion picture "It's A Wonderful Life", Angel First Class, Angel Sergeant, etc…it just does not work that way. If we told you that you are already Angels of the highest degree, whatever that may be, that you are already trained and have the necessary experience and that only those of the highest Angelic realms are even allowed to become Human and play this game, what would you say to that? Would it scare the bejesus out of you? What about your worthiness and deservability issues? Would they increase or decrease, not intellectually but really? Are you ready for this? If you are not, then do not read the next sentence. If you are, then proceed. You are not just Human Angels; YOU ARE THE REAL THING! Angels…each one of you! You have always been Angels. You are still Angels and you will always be Angels.
When you make your transition you will once again become aware of your connection to the Angelic Energies of Archangels Michael, Raphael, Uriel and others including but not limited to Kryon and the Group. You are already connected to these Angelic Energies, you are just not totally aware of it at the moment. In fact, as we speak, you are not only connected to these energies, you are an integral part of these energies.
So…are you Human Angels? Of course, you are and the only training involved is about remembering (learning) Who You Truly Are…the Angelic Beings that You Truly Are. This is not about training to become a Human Angel, to be an Angel for the Second Planet Of Free Choice. You are already doing that even though you do not realize it yet. This is about remembering Who You Truly Are.
Does that answer your questions?
So we ask you again…WHAT ARE YOU PRETENDING NOT TO KNOW?
This Is My Last Time Here!
WHAT AM I PRETENDING NOT TO KNOW?
Many of you have adamantly stated, "This is my last time here as a Human. Yep! I've done my work and I'm not coming back!" Others have said, " I'm tired; I'm worn out. I don't want to do this anymore. I think I'm going to try something easier next time. Free choice? Hmmm…quite interesting but it's more than I want to do."
You cause us to shake with laughter, you are so funny! You are an elite, experienced group of Angelic Energies. You are like the Delta Force, the Green Berets and the Navy Seals…The Best Of The Best. You volunteered for this mission and you were chosen. You may leave at any time and you may choose to never come back. Your choices are always honored. What we know is that once you have transitioned to our side of the veil, you cannot wait to get back to the planet. You cannot wait to be Human, once again. This is the job you chose and you are all so damned good at it! You may take sabbaticals and you may play other roles for a "time" but then you get the itch to go back. You cannot wait to experience the experiences waiting for you as Human. It is almost an Angelic addiction. You are drawn to it and each time, you vow to have fun with it.
Lightworker, why not start NOW?
Now, you say that this information is all well and good but you ask, "So what do I do with it? How do I Practically Apply It In My Life?" We are so happy and proud that you ask this question, for this is the purpose of our communication and work with Joe…The Practical Application Of Divinely Inspired Information.
We realize that this communication does not appear to be as straightforward as some of the others in this Practical Spirituality Series but actually, it is the most straightforward and simplistic of the group, to date.
Be open, moment to moment, to discovering What You Are Pretending Not To Know about yourself. When you make a discovery, celebrate this and then ask to go deeper…and deeper…uncovering layer after layer of untruths that have been dumped on you, that you have dumped on yourselves and that you believe; and layer after layer of untruths that you have told yourself about yourself that you believe. Uncover your Cover Story and reveal it for what it is to yourself and move on. Do not beat yourself up for inventing it, time and time again, because it is the way of the Human.
Become in touch with the Angelic Energy that is YOU. If it is easier and more efficient for you to believe that you are a Human Angel in training to become an Angel for the Second Planet Of Free Choice, then do that. Do not stop your work because of a belief system. Do not focus on where the Second Planet is located and what your rank or status in the Angelic Realm happens to be. Within you, you know who and what you truly are and there will come a time when you will remember it. Just continue to do your part.
You are Human. You are Angel. You are God…and so is everyone else. No one is more Human, Angel or God than another. You are each doing your job and no one's job is more important than the next.
If you choose to believe that this is your Last Time as Human because this job is too difficult and you are tired or that you are so spiritually evolved that you don't have to play this game anymore, well, then believe that, if you must. If that is your belief and it works for you then make the best of your Last Time as Human. Take some risks that you would not ordinarily take. Dare to go too far, if you so choose. You may discover that it is better to go too far and have to be pulled back than it is to cautiously not go far enough. We encourage you, above all, to Have Fun With It!
You are The Best Of The Best. There…the seed has been planted. When it is your time you will nurture it, allow it to grow and see what comes of it.
WHAT ARE YOU PRETENDING NOT TO KNOW?
Dearest Human…Dearest Angel…Dearest Family…Dearest God…We are honored and express our deepest thanks, gratitude and appreciation to you for the opportunity to present this information to you. We reluctantly leave you this time with these words…
ALL OF THIS IS YOURS FOR THE TAKING.
ALL OF THIS IS YOURS FOR THE TAKING.
YOUR GLORIOUS CHOICE!
We ask only that you…
Spread The Light
DO NOT FORGET TO BREATHE!
YOU ARE GOD, and So Is Everyone Else.
I AM Joseph…I AM the Sentinel…I AM the human…I AM You
WE ARE ONE
