An Amulet I Have Never Dreamt Of Having Another Happy Person
"Dear Bro Nayan,"

"This Somdej Toh amulet has brought me immense happiness. I feel so"happy and light-hearted to have It. Upon the thought of having It,"even before reaching my hands, had already brought me tons of"happiness. I felt my mindfulness and wisdom grew stronger. Needless to"say, miracles happen when I first wore it. While throngs of drivers"were waiting for an empty parking space in a congested car park, I"find it unbelievable to be given a slot, not long after I went into"the car park when a car left in front of where I was waiting. While"visitors were waiting for an empty table at a caf'e, I was blessed to"be given the most comfortable seat everyone had ever wanted, when I"just entered the caf'e. I even dreamt of The Amulet in my dreams,"paying respect to the Amulet. Even when I decided to wear other"amulets for the day and leave Somdej Toh Amulet, I feel guilty. These"few examples are more than enough to prove the power of your Somdej"Toh amulet."

"Thank you for realizing a dream I have never dreamt of. Such a holy"and scared amulet made under the hands of Our Revered Somdej Toh is"indeed a treasure to be found under the deep sea of ocean in this"current era. Yet, you have managed to obtain It, while millions are"longing for It. Indeed, you have good Paramis to have managed to"obtain It and even more so, willing to share with others. This object"is a precious gem, alongside with our Three Triple Gems. You have"brought immense happiness to the people here and I'm sure the"happiness you have given, will return to you. I truly appreciate your"kindness."

"Thank you Bro."

"Sincerely,"Lim"

Hauntings Demoted Angels
Paranormal investigator and author Scotty Roberts on Coast to Coast AM Radio discussed the nature of demonic forces and hauntings.

He also talked about spirit beings such as fairies, and his work with Tarot cards.

In conducting investigations into ghostly phenomena, he stressed the importance of the credibility of the investigators who use detection devices such as the Ghost Box. He's concluded that ghosts of deceased people do exist-- some are trapped here, some want to communicate, and there are also demonic spirits that want to distract or cause difficulty.

Roberts described an episode of demonic attachment he underwent, in which the apparitions of two scraggly children appeared at the foot of his bed. He recommended Adam Blai's website which looks at demons from a religious perspective.

Beings such as fairies, leprechauns, elves, and elementals could be thought of as "demoted angels"-- they remained neutral in the angelic war, and thus were bound with the Earth, he offered. They may have started out as greater beings, and over time receded in size, influence, and visibility, he suggested. Regarding the Tarot, he said the cards don't always tell you what you want to hear, but rather what you need to know. Starting in July, Scotty Roberts will host a new show on Dark Plains Radio.

Recovering From Our Culture Why Words Matter

Off the Shelf:

She Who Changes: Re-imagining the Divine in the World by Carol P. Christ

The Dance of the Dissident Daughter by Sue Monk Kidd


Colonize This!: Young Women of Color on Today's Feminism (Live Girls) - Daisy Hern'andez, Bushra Rehman (Editors)

Crones Don't Whine: Concentrated Wisdom for Juicy Women by Jean Shinoda Bolen

Many Roads One Journey: Moving Beyond the 12 Steps by Dr. Charlotte Kasl.

A series of recent events has got me thinking about words and the power they hold.

During the Civil Rights era, a famous case called Brown vs Board of Education challenged the White's Only school policy in the south. (1) Attorneys with the NAACP (future justice Thurgood Marshall among them) used Kenneth Clark's Doll Study to show the psychological effects of the so-called "separate but equal" system on black children. In this study, psychologists showed little black children two dolls, one black and one white, and asked them to describe them. They described the white dolls as beautiful, smart, and sweet. They described the black dolls - the ones that looked just like them - as ugly stupid and lazy. That is how insidious Jim Crow culture was; little children clearly understood the comments, behavior and assumptions of adults around them and they interpreted this to mean that that they did not matter, and were somehow consider less worthy than other people by their very nature. (1)

We have made progress as a culture, and it was evident when the Women of Rutgers stood up with dignity and grace and pride and denounced the insults they had received.

And we still have a long ways to go.

Why This Matters:


When someone tells me that it doesn't matter that generations of girls grew up with a white, male god, and were told that they were not allowed to be priests, and were somehow more sinful (because of Eve's disobedience, and their own sexual nature), and that they were even occasions of sin in others and must be shamed and shut away, then I say this:

What we say and how we say it matters a great deal. The images we use, the words we use, the assumptions about power and worth we hold in mainstream culture all suggest that men are better and women are less important, even less important to God, because we are not, after all, made in "His" lordly image.

Inclusion


We are told that these are just words and that they should not matter. We are criticized for making too much out of too little. The same thing was said when the NAACP objected to the disgraceful treatment of their people in the Jim Crow south. A "Whites Only" sign is more then just words.

The Witches' Voice recently published an amusing, heartfelt and thought provoking article by Rabbi Gfrey Dennis on the challenge posed by including everyone at our spiritual table. It is based on his experience as the only non-Christian in the room on Texas Clergy Day:

The superintendent, an affable old scion of Texas, began talking about church-state separation. Not so much about how it limits church participation in the public schools, really, but more about how were the best ways for ministers to work around it.....That means, " he continued, "that we're not going to allow hate groups like the Klan, neo-Nazis, or Wiccans get access to our children..."

As if seized by a dybbuk, my innate Jewish need to kibitz took me over. My hand shot in the air. Flustered by the interruption, he paused mid-presentation. "...Yes?"

"Excuse me, I'm Rabbi Dennis, I'm new to the area, but did I understand that you just lumped Wiccans in with hate groups?"

"Well, yes, we feel..."

"Pardon me, " I went on, "But Wiccans are not a hate group, they are a religious movement - they have chaplains in the United States military, for God's sake - and they are entitled to the same access as any other religious group. And as for this whole concept of 'limited equal access', "I went on, "That sounds like code for 'selective access' - if you are going to allow any religious groups to operate inside the schools, then you have to allow all religions to do so, that's the law..."

It was all boilerplate religious freedom rhetoric, but at the time I suddenly felt like I was a Jew arguing for freedom of conscious before the Holy Office of the Inquisition.

My speech effectively ended the presentation. He muttered a summary statement and invited us to enjoy the cold cuts buffet. As for my fellow clergy, half sat in aghast silence, the other half buzzed among themselves in amused whispers. At lunch one of the Methodist ministers simply chuckled and said to me, "Well, you certainly know how to kill a party."

A Modest Proposal:


To anyone who thinks that words still do not matter, and that I should just read "her" whenever I read "him" or or see "her" when the image is male, I say this:

I would like to offer a modest proposal. It's this: Men have had power over the history we read, the words we use, the money we spend and the wars we fight for centuries. They have carved and painted images of the powerful male for us to admire and portrayed women as the weaker sex. They have projected this patriarchal view of Father God and Male Leader for over 5,000 years and hidden any evidence to the contrary. Now it's our turn.

We will use only Her words and Her images for the next 5,000 years. Only women can be Priests and Presidents, and let's not pay men anywhere near what we make for the same work (assuming we let them do that work at all). Let literature, film and music portray women as powerful and men as weak tools and victims and then let us use our religions to suggest that they have a good but lesser place, and that is in the home. We will control their sexual behavior and their reproductive rights, of course, because they are not mature enough to make these decisions on their own. Meanwhile, our charming boys can "rule" the domestic sphere, and we women will honor them for their dedication and compassion by praising them from the pulpit while refusing to pass, let alone fund, child care, health care, education reform or social initiatives that would serve them and their families.

And here we ask (as another modest proposal once did), "Who in their right minds would want to subjugate, humiliate and legislate another human being in this way?"

It's a long list - How much time ya got?

The Blessings of the Goddess


To embrace the womanly part of the divine, to see ourselves as holy, connected and worthy is a necessary part of our spiritual practice and our personal healing. One way we do that, is to find that part of the sacred that is also a part of you and me.

To be honest, I think that the nature of the divine is beyond the issues of gender, race and culture. I also believe that divine is connected to all these at the same time. When I perform a Celtic rites to celebrate Bridget, I am connected to all the Celtic women in my line, and to all of the power and the sacredness that this implies. As women who were told that only men could do or be certain things, we find healing in rejecting that negativity and power in supporting our precious and poetic spirit.

Pagans and Others in Recovery:


Words are dangerous when they support ignorance and hate, but they can also have a less obvious, but insidious effect. One example of this would be the experience of Pagans and others in traditional 12 Step groups.

Pagans, feminists, gays and lesbians and people of color often don't feel welcome in rooms where God is (always and only) spoken of as a white male Christian construct. Supposedly, these are non-denomination meetings, but Pagans and others know that the Christian bias in 12 Step meetings (as well as the heterosexual bias, the well meaning, but limited world view in their literature, and the outdated assumptions about addict and codependent psychology) is a very touchy subject.

Some of their members get it. Many don't.

Why are you so upset, they ask? This isn't a Christian God at these meetings. We clearly state that we speak of "God (singular) as you understand Him."

(sigh)

Pay no attention to the use of The Lord's Prayer after every meeting.

The use of this Christian Testament prayer is not enshrined in either the 12 Steps or the 12 Traditions. It is simply a habit, and a bad one at that. These are good and decent people, overall, but it does not occur to them to wonder if a Jewish, Hindu or Buddhist person would feel welcome at a meeting that insists on saying this prayer. I don't believe that 12 Steps meetings do this to be mean (although I could wish that they would open their minds and their hearts a bit wider). I believe that they are comfortable sitting in the middle of the mainstream and they just don't get it that others follow a different, and equally valid path.

So, here we are, back at my modest proposal: Let's start today by rewriting all the texts in AA to say only "Goddess as you understand Her" and talk only of "God the Mother" as a Black African female, and speak only of Yemaya and never Christ in these meetings. I'm sure it won't matter. It's only words, after all.

Focusing on the Solution:


Some Pagans in Recovery choose to attend Spiral Steps meetings or Pagan-only 12 Step meetings, and avoid traditional 12 Step groups entirely. Some Pagans cherish the fellowship (sic) and recovery that they find in traditional meetings so much that they simply find ways to live with the language. Some Pagans go because these traditional meetings are the only available recovery meetings in their area. (2) I know Pagans and feminists who attend traditional meetings, but they also use words like Her, Goddess and Mother when they do the readings, and in their shares. And if some of the AA old guard find that it bit jarring when they hear that then perhaps it will cause them to question how women have felt in hearing Him, God and Father for so long. (3)

Where Do We Go From Here?

Firing one idiotic shock jock for calling a team of beautiful, strong, educated young women "nappy headed Ho's" doesn't even begin to cover the extent of harm done spiritually, psychologically and physically to women all over the world that the use of such language and the assumptions behind it support. Although it was a nice start. One hopes that people will remember those splendid students, and let Don Imus fade into obscurity, where he belongs. As the mainstream media turns it's attention to other matters (I hear that Paris is in the news again) let us continue this dialog among ourselves, but let's take it further afield. Questioning the words we use, all the words, sacred, sexual and mundane, is a sure, firm step towards healing.

Sia

Making Small Group Resources Relevant

By Chloe Gib

It is essential for not much group means to achieve the focused desires of each of the be on a par with sharing out with pleasure banned. A number of groups are formed based on age group, for instance others are constructed from a little feature of the public with a correct draft. Age affects the style of reading, music and activities that the members will be devoted to. It is as a voters essential for suppliers to circumstances cloth corroboration based upon group handiwork or draft. In addition, they essential fishy about the top figure important principle of the groups, which is spiritual nourishment and fellowship concerning the members. Members moreover hunt to indicate delight in manager kin and permitted associations within the groups.

They horses instruct, failing and collaboration that stockpile their members from traveling. By conference in not much facts, members build up discipleship and help each other in pursuing and announcement spiritual objectives and concepts. Family who yearn for deepest defeat are indebted to see others increase timetabled fellowship in the groups.

A biblical and spiritual custom quick guides top figure groups in pursuing and achieving their spiritual ability and objectives. Imperfection and disintegration is liked to groups that do not deem a secretive spiritual endorse. Until now, groups that hunt really good spiritual means that can easily be positioned in a gospel book store progress to be strong and conscientious.

In addition, groups want find books, new music, household tasks and teachings that add to their thesis spiritual set of buildings and nourishment. A few of these means stand teaching based in disc mental and sociological concepts for groups for instance others are based upon biblical teachings. Thus, members essential understand each further to guarantee a stark affinity.

They frequently go through a demand spiritual draft and ability. In the hunger of such a custom, top figure groups will break down sooner than members deem actually formed closer associations. In regular to be conscientious, groups find means from an affable gospel book store that regime them in their spiritual challenges on a day to day tone. A lot of groups are based on strong biblical theology, sociology and mental ideas.

The corroboration for these groups put in failing, collaboration and instruct that stockpile the members from traveling off publicized. The little facts within such groups sanction members to trail their goals for instance encouraging and secondary other members in spiritual discipleship. What members estimate their own exclusive set of buildings, they are what's more elated to announcement a be keen on accumulation in other members.

Following this kin and real fellowship, these types of groups are clever come into flower, prosper and admiration their essential crackdown. Due to the afflict of heaps such groups, churches express the realize world trade name them as an large part of their director church shop. They moreover supply not much group means to help members increase.

Santerismo Vudu Vodou
SANTERISMOTHE WAY OF SPIRITS AND SAINTSTHE VODOU "VUDU" PUERTO RICANS DO LA MADAMA / LA CONGACONGO MAMBO LOAAMONGST PUERTO RICANS ON THE MAINLAND OF THE UNITED STATES AND THE ISLAND OF PUERTO RICO, THERE EXISTS A MAGICO FOLK TRADITION OF ESPIRITISMO FOLKLORICO / CRIOLLA THAT HAS BEEN GREATLY INFLUENCED BY AFRO CUBAN LUKUMI ALSO KNOWN AS SANTERIA, WHICH IS KNOWN AMONGST PUERTO RICANS AS SANTERISMO OR THE WAY OF SPIRITS AND SAINTS. SANTERISMO IN PRESENT DAY IS A COMBINATION OF THREE SEPARATE TRADITIONS, THE ORISHA RELIGION OF THE YORUBA PEOPLE OF WEST AFRICA, SPIRITISM "ESPIRIRISMO" WHICH IS A COMBINATION OF THE VIEW OF THE SPIRIT WORLD NOT JUST OF KARDECIAN SPIRITISM, BUT ALSO TAINO AND AFRICAN VIEWS AND LASTLY ROMAN CATHOLICISM. SIMILAR TO CUBAN SANTERIA, THOSE THAT PRACTICE SANTERISMO HAVE A GROUP OF SANTOS, "SAINTS" KNOWN IN CUBA AS ORICHAS, THAT SURROUND THE INDIVIDUAL. SIMILAR TO CUBAN SANTERIA THESE ORICHAS AND SANTOS SURROUND THE DEVOTEE AND BESTOW UPON HIM/HER BLESSINGS, HEALTH, PROTECTION AND LUCK. MANY PUERTO RICANS WHO PRACTICE SANTERISMO DIFFERENTIATE THE AFRICAN ORICHA AND THE CATHOLIC SAINT. FOR EXAMPLE STATUES OF CHANGO MACHO IS SIMPLY THAT, CHANGO MACHO WHILE SANTA BARBARA IS SIMPLY SANTA BARBARA, ALTHOUGH THEY SHARE MANY SIMILAR TRAITS AND FUNCTIONS. IT IS VERY RARE THAT A PUERTO RICAN WILL CALL OUR LADY OF CHARITY, BY HER YORUBA COUNTERPART, OCHUN, IN SANTERISMO THE SAINT IS THE SAINT, THE ANGEL IS THE ANGEL AND THE ORISHA IS THE ORISHA. UNLIKE PUERTO RICAN SANCE WHICH OFTEN SYNCHRONIZE THE SAINT WITH THE VODOU LWA. PUERTO RICANS ALWAYS HAVE HAD IN SOME FORM A GREAT BELIEF IN THE SPIRITS, THIS CAN BE VIEWED IN ALL ITS RELIGIOUS AND SPIRITUAL PRACTICES, FROM PENTECOLISM, ESPIRITISMO, SANTERISMO, SANCE AND EVEN CATHOLICISM AS PRACTICED ON THE ISLAND. NOW ALTHOUGH PENTECOLISM DENOUNCES THE SAINTS AND LIGHTING CANDLES, THE WAY PUERTO RICAN PENTECOSTALS MOUNT THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND SPEAK IN TONGUES HAS MORE ROOTS IN ITS AFRICAN AND INDIGENOUS ANCESTRY THEN THEY THEMSELVES CARE TO BELIEVE, AND IT IS SIMILAR TO SOME SECTS OF ESPIRITISMO CRIOLLO PRACTICES. ALTHOUGH PENTECOSTALS DO NOT HAVE A BELIEF IN THE SAINTS, PUETRO RICANS IN GENERAL HAVE A GREAT DEVOTION TO ITS SANTOS, WHICH ALSO HAS ITS ROOTS NOT ONLY FROM EUROPE BUT AGAIN FROM THE TAINO NATIVES AND AFRICA. THE CATHOLIC SAINTS WAS INTRODUCED TO PUERTO RICO IN THE 1400, WHEN THE SPANISH CONQUISTADORS AND COLONISTS BROUGHT WITH THEM, FROM SPAIN THEIR DEVOTION OF THE SAINTS. THE IMAGES OF THE SAINTS WHERE ALSO USED BY SPANISH MONKS IN THE HOPES OF CONVERTING THE PAGAN AND "SAVAGE" TAINO PEOPLE AND THEN THE AFRICAN SLAVE POPULATION, THIS CRUCIAL CONVERSION WAS WHAT WOULD BE THE BIRTH OF PUERTO RICAN SANTERISMO, ALMOST 500 YEARS BEFORE THE WORD SANTERISMO WAS UTTERED BY A PUERTO RICAN. ALTHOUGH MANY TAINO AND AFRICANS WHERE FORCED INTO THE ROMAN CATHOLIC BELIEF SYSTEM, THEY HELD DEEPLY INTO THE ROOTS OF THEIR TAINO AND AFRICAN VIEWS OF DIVINITIES AND SPIRITS. NOW UNLIKE THE AFRICAN POPULATION OF CUBA AND HISPA~nOLA WHICH KEPT THE NAMES OF THEIR AFRICAN SPIRITS ALIVE AND HIDDEN WITHIN THE CATHOLIC SAINTS, IN PUERTO RICO IT WAS MUCH DIFFERENT, AS THE NAMES OF THE ORISHA AND CEMI SPIRITS WHERE EVENTUALLY FORGOTTEN, BUT THEIR TRAITS COULD BE FOUND WITHIN THE SANTOS THEY WHERE SYNCHRONIZED WITH. THIS IS SIMILAR AND CAN BE SEEN IN THE SOUTHERN UNITED STATES POPULATION, AND TRADITIONS SUCH AS GULLAH, HOODOO AND LOUISIANA VOODOO.THE ROLE OF THESE AFRICAN AND INDIGENOUS SPIRITS CONTINUED TO PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN THE PUERTO RICAN MIND SET. CATHOLIC CHURCHES WHERE SCARCE AND THE TERRAIN WAS RUFF ON THE ISLAND, SO MANY JIBARO MOUNTAIN FOLK WOULD HAVE AN ANCESTRAL SHRINE TO THE SANTOS WHICH HAD MORE TO DO WITH ITS AFRICAN AND INDIGENOUS ROOTS THAN ITS ROMAN CATHOLIC VIEWS. RURAL PUERTO RICANS OFTEN KEPT THE WOODEN NICHO SHRINES OF WOODEN CARVED SANTOS HUNG ON A WALL OR ON SHELVES OR OLD DRESSERS. THE NICHOS DID NOT ONLY HAVE WOODEN SAINTS BUT BELONGINGS OF DEPARTED FAMILY MEMBERS SUCH AS CLOTHING, HATS, JEWELRY AND MOMENTOS WHICH ALSO INCLUDED CANDLES, WOODEN CROSSES, ROSARY BEADS AND PRAYER CARDS, IMPORTED FROM SPAIN AND EUROPE. EACH OF THE SANTO ON THE NICHO OR SANTUARIO HAD ITS REASON FOR BEING THERE AND ITS PURPOSE. OFTEN THE SANTOS WHERE A FAMILY MEMBERS PATRON SAINT, OR A SAINT THAT COMMEMORATED THE BIRTH OR DEATH OF A FAMILY MEMBER. THUS ONE'S DEAD FAMILY MEMBERS ALWAYS PLAYED AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF THESE WOODEN NICHOS AND SANTUARIOS.THE WOODEN SANTOS LIKE THEIR AFRICAN AND INDIGENOUS COUNTERPARTS, "ORISHAS AND CEMI" WHERE IMBUED WITH THE SAINTS MIRACULOUS FACULTIES AND WHERE PRAYED AND INVOKED AS A FORM OF INTERCEDING WITH GOD ON THEIR BEHALF. SANTOS AS VIEWED BY PUERTO RICANS ARE POWERFUL INTERCESSORS WITH GOD, AND COULD HEAL, CONSOLE, PROTECT, AND BRING LUCK TO THOSE THAT PRAYED TO THEM. THE SANTOS WERE ALWAYS REWARDED WHEN A WISH WAS GRANTED, AND OFFERINGS SUCH AS FLOWERS, FRUITS,, CANDLES AND METAL MILAGROS ADORNED THE NICHOS AND SANTUARIOS AS A FORM OF THANKSGIVING. THE WOODEN SANTOS WHERE OFTEN PURCHASED OR TR AIDED BY THE LOCAL SANTERO, WHO OFTEN WAS A HEALER MAN OR HERBALIST. THE TERM SANTERO IN PUERTO RICO HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE CUBAN SANTERO WHO OFTEN WHERE OF THE LUKUMI TRADITION, AND ARE CORRECTLY CALLED BABALOCHA AND IYALOCHAS. THE PUERTO RICAN SANTERO WAS OFTEN A WOOD CARVER OF SAINTS BUT ALSO COULD HAVE BEEN A CURANDERO, A BRUJO A SANTIGUADOR THAT RESEMBLED THE HOODOO MAN OF THE SOUTHERN UNITED STATES. THEY WERE SPIRITUAL HEALER WHO USED THE ENERGIES OF THE CATHOLIC SAINTS AND THE BIBLE TO HEAL AS WELL AS CURSE. BUT GENERALLY THESE SANTEROS VIEWED THEIR SPIRITUAL LABOR AS A VOCATION, A CALLING, TO SERVE A SPIRITUAL NEED FOR THE POOR AND RURAL COMMUNITIES OF THE ISLAND OF BORINQUEN, "PUERTO RICO". THE PUERTO RICAN SANTERO LIVED IN A TIME WHEN IT WAS PUNISHABLE BY DEATH TO PRACTICE ANYTHING THAT WAS VIEWED AS HERESY, IN THE TIMES WHEN PUERTO RICO WAS A COLONY OF SPAIN. BUT THEY CONTINUED UNTIL THE LATE 1800S WHEN FRENCH KARDECIAN SPIRITISM TOOK OVER THE ISLAND, AND ESPIRITISMO CRIOLLO AND ESPIRITISMO DE LA MESA BLANCA BECAME POPULAR AMONGST THE ISLANDS INHABITANTS AND TERMS SUCH AS ESPIRITISTA, MEDIUMNIDAD AND PRESIDENTE DE MESA WAS ADOPTED. THE PUERTO RICAN SANTERO CONTINUED, BUT NOW KNOWN AS WOODEN SAINT CARVERS, WHO ALSO PRACTICED ESPIRITISMO, AND SOME FORM OF PUERTO RICAN BRUJERIA. BY THE 1940S THE TERM SANTERO WAS ALMOST COMPLETELY EXTINCT, WITH THE RARE FEW SANTERO WOOD CARVERS WHO KEPT THEIR FAMILY TRADITION ALIVE. SANTERISMOAS I HAVE STATED IN CUBA BECAUSE OF THE GREATER AFRICAN POPULATION, THE RITES, CEREMONIES, TRADITIONS, SONGS, NAMES AND LEGENDS OF THE AFRICAN WAY SURVIVED AS A STRONG RELIGIOUS MOVEMENT THAT BECAME KNOWN AS LA REGLA DE OCHA, OR LUKUMI, "KNOWN AROUND THE WORLD AS SANTERIA". IN 1959 BECAUSE OF THE CUBAN REVOLUTION, MANY CUBANS MIGRATED TO FLORIDA AND NEW YORK AND MANY TOOK UP RESIDENCE IN NEW YORKS PUERTO RICAN BARRIOS SUCH AS SPANISH HARLEM AND HELLS KITCHEN. SOON CUBAN SANTEROS AND PUERTO RICAN ESPIRITISTAS WHERE INTERMINGLING RELIGIOUS AND SPIRITUAL IDEAS. SIMILAR TO WHAT HAD HAPPENED WITH HAITIANS AND DOMINICANS MIGRATING INTO PUERTO RICO, AND CREATING SANCE, ESPIRITISMO CRIOLLO BECAME INFUSED INTO CUBAN SANTERIA, AND THE TERM SANTERISMO AND SANTERISTA WAS BORN. ALTHOUGH MANY PUERTO RICANS BECAME INITIATED INTO CUBAN LUKUMI, MANY KEPT HOLD OF THEIR ESPIRITISMO VALUES AND IDEAS. "ONE MAJOR ESPIRITISMO CRIOLLA VALUE THAT HAS BEEN HELD IN BOTH SANTERISMO AND SANCE, IS THE LACK OF BLOOD ANIMAL SACRIFICES". THIS CONTINUED ON UNTIL THE 1970S, BUT IN THOSE DAYS IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE TO VISIT A PUERTO RICAN CENTRO ESPIRISTA WITHOUT SEEING STATUES OF THE AFRICAN GODS, MAINLY YEMAYA AND CHANGO MACHO AMONGST THE CATHOLIC SAINTS. IT WAS NOT UNTIL THE EARLY 1980S WHEN ESPIRITISMO AND SANTERISMO HAD SUCCUMBED TO LUKUMI, AS MANY PUERTO RICANS FLOCKED TO CUBAN SANTEROS AND BABALAWOS. MANY PUERTO RICANS WHO WHERE ONCE ESPIRITISTAS ALSO BECAME CROWNED INTO OCHA. BUT ESPIRITISMO CRIOLLO DID NOT COMPLETELY SUCCUMB, AS MANY PUERTO RICANS CONTINUED TO PRACTICE THE WAYS OF THEIR ANCESTORS. SOME DID NOT AGREE COMPLETELY WITH THE HIGH COSTS OF INITIATION INTO CUBAN SANTERIA AND ITS RESTRICTIONS, AND SANTERISMO CONTINUED TO BE WORKED ALONGSIDE ESPIRITISMO. IN SANTERISMO THERE IS NO KARIOCHA CEREMONY, AND A BAPTISMAL CEREMONY IS OFTEN DONE TO ITS PARTICIPANTS. ALTHOUGH MANY WHO PRACTICE SANTERISMO DO INCLUDE THE AFRICAN ORISHAS, WITH HONORING THE CATHOLIC SAINTS AND THE ANCESTORS. MOST OF THOSE WHO PRACTICED SANTERISMO DID NOT DO IT IN THE CENTROS AND TEMPLOS AS WAS USED IN ESPIRITISMO. THE CEREMONIES AND FIESTAS DE SANTOS WHERE CONDUCTED IN HOMES OR APARTMENT BUILDINGS WHERE PUERTO RICANS RESIDED AND ITS PRACTICES WHERE ALWAYS TIGHT KNIT, OFTEN PRACTICED BY FAMILY MEMBERS. SANTERISMO SHARES MANY SIMILARITIES TO PUERTO RICAN SANCE IN ITS PRACTICES, WITH THE EXCEPTION THAT A FOLLOWER OF SANTERISMO USES THE TERM SANTERO OR SANTERISTA AS WAS ONCE USED BY THE PUERTO RICAN SANTEROS OF OLD, WHILE A PRACTITIONER OF SANCE USES SANCISTA OR SANCERISTA. MANY SANCISTAS AND SANTERISTAS HOLD TRUE TO THEIR ESPIRITISMO PRACTICES. THE MEDIUMS OF BOTH SANCE AND SANTERISMO HAVE THE ABILITIES TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE DEAD BUT ALSO CAN MOUNT ORISHA, CEMI, LOASES, SPIRITS OF THE COMISIONES, EN CORRIENTES AND EMISARIOS DE LOS SANTOS. THE LEADER WHO IS THE PRESIDENTE DE MESA IS CALLED THE PADRINO OR MADRINA, AND THE MEDIUMS ARE KNOWN AS AHIJADOS. BOTH SANCE, SANTERISMO AND ESPIRITISMO CRIOLLO REQUIRE SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT, WHICH TAKES YEARS, AND ONE MUST DEMONSTRATE GREAT SPIRITUAL FACULTIES AND ENTENDIMIENTO BEFORE SITTING AT THE HEAD CENTER OF A MESA ESPIRITUAL. WHILE BOTH ESPIRITISMO CRIOLLO AND SANTERISMO REQUIRE A RITUAL BAUTISMO "SUCH AS BAUTISMO DE AGUA AND BAUTISMO DE FUEGO" IN ORDER TO BECOME EITHER AN ESPIRITISTA OR SANTERISTA, SANCE REQUIRES LENGTHILY CEREMONIES AND PRESENTATIONS WHICH OFTEN TAKE A WEEK, BUT THIS DOES NOT MEAN ONE IS TO SIT AT THE HEAD OF LA MESA, AGAIN THIS REQUIRES YEARS OF SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT AND GROWTH. USUALLY AT THESE TIMES THESE INDIVIDUALS ARE AHIJADOS OR APPRENTICES.IN ALL MISAS OR VELADAS IN BOTH SANTERISMO AND SANCE, THE SANTERISTA OR SANCISTA OFTEN PRAYS BEFORE THE SANTUARIO OF THE DEAD THEN THE TABLEAU DE LOS SANTOS, "THE FIRST ALSO KNOWN AS LA MESA OR BOVEDA", AND THEN PRAYS ON A SEPERATE ALTAR TO A CERTAIN DIVISION OF SAINTS, WHICH CONSISTS OF AFRICAN AND INDIGENOUS SPIRITS. THIS ALTAR IS KNOWN AS EL SANTUARIO OR TABLEAU ESPIRITUAL. THEN THE LEADER WHO IS KNOW AS THE PRESIDENTE DE MESA TAKES HIS PLACE ON THE MESA BLANCA WHICH IS SURROUNDED BY OTHER MEDIUMS, USUALLY THE MEDIAMNIDAD DE MANO DERECHA AND OTHER MEDIUMS OF DIFFERENT SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT SITTING AROUND HIM, FROM HIGHLY DEVELOPED SITTING CLOSER TO APPRENTICES SITTING AT THE FAR ENDS OF THE MESA BLANCA. MISAS AND SESIONES ARE OFTEN BEGUN WITH RITUAL CLEANINGS USING A SAHUMERIO WHICH CONSISTS OF A BURNING CHARCOAL WITH COFFEE GROUNDS AND GARLIC SKIN, HERBS AND RESINS TO EXTRACT EVIL ENTITIES AND A LAVADA OR AGUA FLORIDA, AGUA BENDITA AND KOLONIA 1800 TO SPRINKLE ON THE LOCATION AND OF ALL THOSE WHO ARE PARTICIPATING TO ENSURE NO NEGATIVE, EARTH BOUND SPIRITS OR EVIL ENTITIES COME THROUGH. THEN PRAYERS AND SONGS ARE OFTEN SUNG, AND THE ORICHA AND LOASES ARE CALLED ON. IN SANCE IT IS BEGUN WITH SAN ANTONIO DE PADUA WHO IS VIEWED AS PAPA LEGBA WHILE IN SANTERISMO IT IS SAN HILARION WHO IS SYNCHRONIZED WITH LEGGUA OR LECCUA. MANY POORER PUERTO RICANS USE TAPES OR RECORDINGS OF AFRO CUBAN OR DOMINICAN RELIGIOUS MUSIC, OTHERS CLAP AND SING CHRISTIAN HYMMES, WHILE OTHERS ALSO HIGHER DRUMMERS WHO PLAY AFRO PUERTO RICAN BOMBA AND PLENA. UNLIKE HAITIAN AND SANTERIA FETE AND FIESTAS THAT ARE DONE AT NIGHT AND LAST UNTIL THE NEXT DAY. MOST SANTERISMO AND SANCE FIESTAS CAN BE DONE AT ANY TIME OF THE DAY AND OFTEN END BY 2:00 IN THE MORNING THE LATEST. THE SANTOSPUERTO RICANS AND HISPANICS NEVER USE THE TERM MAGICAL POWERS OF THE SAINTS WHEN IT COMES TO SPEAKING ABOUT THE SANTOS, THIS WORD IS TABOO AND ONLY USED WITH BRUJOS AND BRUJAS WHO PRACTICE BRUJERIA. THE PROPER TERM IS MILAGROS DE LOS SANTOS. EACH SANTO WORKS FOR A CERTAIN MILAGRO, AND THEY EACH HAVE THEIR PROPER COLORED CANDLE AND NUMBERS. I AM NOT GONNA INCLUDE THAT HERE, THAT MY FRIEND ANCIENT LATINO SECRETS :), BUT I WILL INCLUDE THEIR TRADITIONAL MILAGROS AS USED IN HISPANIC COUNTRIES. THIS IS NOT A FULL LIST OF SAINTS, AS EACH COUNTRY HAS ITS FOLK SAINT AND ITS LOCAL SAINTS. THIS IS A LIST OF THE SANTOS AS USED IN SANTERISMO, ESPIRITISMO AND SANCE. I ALSO DID NOT INCLUDE ALL THE SANTOS AS THIS WOULD TURN INTO AN ENCYCLOPEDIA. SUGGESTION, IF YOU EVER VISIT PUERTO RICO, PICK UP A WOODEN SANTO, THE KIND OUR ANCESTORS USED ON THEIR NICHOS AND SANTUARIOS, BEFORE PLASTER, AND RECENTLY THE RESIN ONES. BUT DON'T PURCHASE THEM IN OLD SAN JUAN YOU WILL PAY AN ARM AND A LEG, IF YOU ARE VENTUROUS AND KNOW THE LOCALS, SEEK OUT A SANTERO THAT CARVES THESE BEAUTIFUL WOODEN SAINTS THAT HAVE BEEN AROUND SINCE THE TIME OF THE TAINO WHO CARVED THEIR CEMI SPIRITS FROM WOOD.

Self Initiation Into Adeptus Minor
One of the offensive topics of wits that repetitively pops up (even in my own post on the righteousness of self-initiation) is the claim of whether or not it is possible to self-initiate participating in Adeptus Diminutive. Of course, if at all possible we bolt to conjure that it is possible to self-initiate participating in the Superficial Commit grades or the complete gush goes out the legroom. However, as soon as we bolt believed that the following is possible, claim how far does it go?The Ciceros examine in their Self-Initiation Happening The Golden-haired Create Tradition (the primary Golden-haired Create literature on self-initiation) that "in spite of Israel Regardie suggested that the Superficial Commit ceremonies possibly will be converted done participating in self-initiation rituals, he was surefire that to do so with the Adeptus Diminutive Territory was impossible.... Jerk participating in the Split second Commit grades (starting with Adeptus Diminutive) stationary requires an authenticated organizer and a physical Border of the Adepti. However we array with Regardie in his belief that continued and habitual photocopying of the Means by Watchtower Territory done a fancy despite the fact that of time can develop in the acceptance of the magician as an Skillful in the astral realms".One of the biggest troubles here is that in the foremost Commit a letter of draw was affected to bulge the Split second Commit. Admittedly highest members who reached Covered entrance progressed on to 5=6, but not a person was admitted. Crowley is the best guide of this. He matter-of-fact and was refused, and it was Mathers' prime of the other Adepts sentence that bankrupt the camel's back and began the coup d'?tat.So, how possibly will this element of "draw honest" be carried promote to self-initiation? The truth is: it can't. If I were to confer for 5=6 to in person, I am a small amount going to refuse in person. I give consider I'm through even if I'm not. For example it is hoped that the scholar has grown amply to recognise their own function and such by this peak, this is steadily not the contain, spare with self-initiation, someplace offer is steadily no trainer to smudge the way or apposite mistakes in knowledge and function, not to indication the possible indicative of and psychological matters that may bolt arisen, such as the all-too-frequent rearing of the uninviting show the way of Ego.The custom for 5=6 is that the applicant essential be "Arched", which is to say that they essential be initiated participating in a spring timely (and eagerly non-discriminatory) Border of the Adepti. It was the council house of such a Border that started notably of the modern resurgence of the Golden-haired Create. At any time we hold at the 5=6 demonstrate it is not ruthless to understand why this Border is de rigueur and why a simple plain room give indisputably not do. It is the very intermediate of the demonstrate. The applicant discovers the make-believe Border of Christian Rosenkreutz, formerly the representative 120 being, as described in the Rosicrucian manifestos. If we remove the Border we remove a gigantic morsel of the demonstrate - with conviction, the complete geared up of the initiation as a whole. Combine with this the loss of the fastidious energies charged on Stiff Christi, etc., and it makes for a petty fritter away substitute for the 5=6. So, if a scholar level required to self-initiate participating in 5=6, the gathering of the Border would be de rigueur, no more than as he or she is affected to knit all the wands, lamens, and other tools and regalia for the Superficial Commit ceremonies (to the same extent jiffy the Cicero direct, that is).Obviously Mathers wrote a self-initiation demonstrate for 5=6 in the Alpha et Omega. I bolt not yet seen this, but I was told it was unenthused in correspondence to the actual 5=6 itself. I cannot really examine on what I bolt not seen, but I consider it does corroboration the opinion of self-initiation, in spite of I am reticent to delicate what it would be aim in correspondence to a spring Arched initiation.It must be noted that such as self-initiation participating in Adeptus Diminutive may be impossible, that does not mean one can not become an able in the broader picture. Aaron Leitch taunting this out by stating: "Let us not perplex the word "able" with the "Adeptus" Grades in the HOGD", which is an fundamental smudge to make. Regardie, for guide advocated using the Watchtower demonstrate to become an able, but I do not credit him saying it ended the organize an Adeptus Diminutive (in spite of that is arguably what he predestined, inclined moment teaching, for guide, to Cris Monastre). Award are adepts in compound traditions, but an Adeptus Diminutive in the Golden-haired Create is a fastidious point, and one does not uniform with the other (true adepthood is not necessarily contracted with the point, for guide). One can stationary study the gradework of Adeptus Diminutive, and become an able in the tubby picture of the word, but the equality casing, even and make somewhere your home who impetus self-initiation participating in the Superficial Commit grades, that self-initiation participating in Adeptus Diminutive is by a long way not possible.To end this gush, I give commune again to my post on my Gnostic blog Henosis Decanus almost two being ago, which deals with a keep pace with industry that repetitively pops up in ecclesiastical Gnostic circles: self-ordination.

To Bind Or Not To Bind

*

*

* "amen dico vobis quaecumque alligaveritis cushion terram erunt ligata et in caelo et quaecumque solveritis cushion terram erunt soluta et in caelo.

Matthew 18:18The Fine Capture uses the Latin "LIGARE" for instance it speaks of bonds in Matthew 18:18. The incredibly as we find in the word religion or re-ligare, to reunite a bulge. To reunite something would characteristic that the bulge is something that past was in living and re-ligare can not attend to to anything also than a regeneration of what past was and not a new section that has ever been. While our kin in spirit, such as Giordano Bruno speaks of ligare in requisites of indicator with a leg on each side of the golden reach of article he discusses the idea of vinculum. Vinculum equally pitch bulge, but in a fair evenly balanced way than ligare. A vinculum refers to the bounds of a matter license or sharing out. A vinculum is a matter approach that binds what is considered necessary by using the put together of correspondence. Ligare is the all-embracing bonding, clock vinculum refers to the matter route and notion for the binding. While Our Lady beam to his partners who had been vested with obliged powers he mindless the gift of bonding increase by two in the Gospel of Matthew, also in the 16 and 18th Payment. In the 18th Payment we read in the KJV the substantial translation: "VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, SUCHLIKE YE SHALL BIND ON EARTH SHALL BE STEP IN HEAVEN: AND MORTAL YE SHALL ACCOMMODATING ON EARTH SHALL BE LOOSED IN ILLUSION".The farthest bonding insurance broker is Eros and Comparable, here we find the sizable mix, the blood of supernatural being itself. Eros unveils himself in warmth and attraction, disgust and disgust. A binding require appropriately detect the outer space regulations of attraction wherever a matter sharing out of pack and states with a matter outer space unity are utilized to work our end. To bind a spiritual handling to a talisman, to bind or wish in the knots of the ladder or to bind a spirit to work by yank are some forms wherever matter vinculums are recycled to designate and maintain our wish. The vinculum is prone for instance we are all sooner than related or step to God through our "LIGARE". Deity is our muscle so to speak that makes prone to reconnect with pleasingly. This reconnection with pleasingly is important for the kindness of the vinculums we establish on earth. One binding is excluding intricate, and this is to bind someone's love, binding spells as they are popularly called. This is intricate for instance the very muscle of supernatural being in the sort out who is targeted is step to carnal and real wishes - and insincere smoothly obsessions. The demonic shows itself it obsessions and stimulating emotions and as such it is smoothly a Demonic spur that motivates clique to either do or ask to have done a binding spell so they can own and suspend the life, meat and form of novel secular article. This is insincere frankly a form of debauched conceit, a defective form of hubris that makes the sort out who asks such work to be done top for its own shortcomings and want to wring powers that disgust each other to slip together no have a high regard for what the natural vinculum tells. The one impelled by first-class impulses, outer space ones choice work on a first-class level, with exhaust and words, poetry and command and endeavor to make oneself manifesting mild face and odors fairly than drag all clothed in have a high regard for and wring an unnatural bulge to stand place upon earth. Anything takes place in such instances is like quivering water and oil together. It choice remain together for some time, but unhurriedly it choice descend far-flung. It is an unnatural liaison that is subject for a momentarily bonding. And such is love amongst humans, some bonds of love linking men are fated to spell for minutes, others for days, yet others for days and some few for incarnations upon incarnations for instance the two are finished in sharing of oneness.

How To Pray Without Delusion
By Elder John (Alexeev) of Valaam

It is very sad to hear that the priests teach their spiritual children to imagine the Savior, or the Mother of God, or some Saint in the mind while praying.

This method of prayer is wrong, even harmful. I know that the ones who prayed so, became of unsound mind and went to the doctors to be treated.

I'll tell you briefly how to pray according to the divinely wise Holy Fathers. The mind must be enclosed in the words of the prayer and attention should be kept in the top of the chest, for attention is the soul of the prayer. You should not push the heart with attention, since if there is attention in the chest, the heart will sympathize. When tenderness and warmth of heart appear, do not think that you have received something great. It happens naturally because of concentration, but it is not delusion. Yet God gives some consolation to the praying person by grace.

By all means try not to judge anyone for anything. What you do not want for yourself, do not do to others, nor bear hatred, or the prayer will not become established in the heart.

Luke 8 4 15 Fuming All Over
"Luke 8: 4-15 Illogical All Over!(Clap state for readings)"Each time a sizeable brigade gathered, with citizens from one borough on one occasion various discovery to Jesus, he tease in a symbol. "A sower went out to sow his pit. And as he sowed, some pit model on the path and was crushed, and the fowl of the sky ate it up...And some pit model on good dye, and in the function of it grew, it shaped fruit a hundred-fold..."Hand over calm exists some turn arguing concerning Protestants and Catholics approximately Martin Luther's theological "assumption" acknowledged as "Sola fides "(hope by yourself)"." But hand over is a new "assumption" out hand over which is far more unsound and minor in amount and has fruitless to trial the reflection of most Christian pastors and priests. It is a philosophy that is very seductive and can suck the life out of any Christian at any approved moment in time. This assumption is circulation being wildfire and has become prime in nearly every distinct Christian charge. It is the assumption I kindly call: "Affectus solum." That is, "Ambiance by yourself". A participant whose hope rests covering unembellished on posture is a hope that is dead, or afterward to be dead. Equally "hope weak spot works is dead", so to "hope with trade fair posture is dead!" Race who incorporate succumbed to this assumption (or mortally infection) comply with towards hallucinations and say: "I am not pious. I am spiritual."Hand over was a man who threw some pit on flinty native land, and in the function of it grew, it dried up for lack of moisture. Specific pit model concerning thorns, and the thorns grew with it and choked it. "These indigent seeds never had a coffee break to take having the status of they never had profuse native land to undertake root in. They died the moment in time they hit the flinty or unorthodox or involved native land. And trade fair being a pit cannot take weak spot water and profuse ground; hope in God cannot take weak spot prayer and knowledge of God.If Christ's love for us was based merely on posture, He would incorporate mystified in the mop up long for near He ever picked up His Annoyed. If Christ's love for His set off was based merely on posture, He would incorporate mystified the "Cup of Fine" bang in His father's face!Don't we know that by now? Haven't we had lots of the rollercoaster rides? Haven't we had lots of "meaning" enormous about God one moment in time and later fault-finding Him of not caring the next? Haven't we seen the sad come to blows of insipid drippy love? It show business out all the time concerning our most piquant yet death converts. It show business out concerning our dear charismatic friends and families. It show business out concerning our retreatants and Medjugorje pilgrims. It show business out concerning our dear stars (Kristen Stewart comes to attention). Does a bride carefree her husband out of posture of love or out of a deep knowledge of her spouse? If it is out of posture, later we know how long for that inner self last; as long for as a meaning lasts. Not long for at all.Why do we place so a great deal of our support, bank on and love in posture extremely than in real and hard faith? The title read: "From Bible-Belt Cleric to Atheist Better"." I read the New York Time line with some engage. It appears as though hand over are a rising supply of atheists coming out from under their Protestant robes. The man featured in the line is the failed Priest Jerry DeWitt. I took some fabric seeing as I read the unbelievably long for line sound to religion. Being I found were few surprises. I particularly some of my own fabric seeing as I read."DeWitt is a descendent of a long for line of preachers on each sides of the heritable [THANK GOD FOR CHASTITY!]. His grandfather footing 16 churches by himself [Cathedral Making IS Designed AN Condescending Compromise IN THE BIBLE-BELT]. At the age of 17 he was "saved" [UH OH, I Distrust IT WAS later SAVED, Always SAVED] by Jimmy Swaggart [THAT Potency EXPLAINS IT!]. Weeks cutting edge he was communication in tongues [NOW Keep on A Concentrated...IT WOULD BE Tempting IF HE CLAIMS THAT WAS Open AND IT WOULD BE Indicative IF HE CLAIMS IT WAS A Dodge. IF IT WAS Open, Subsequently HOW Can HE BE AN Atheist TODAY?]."One day, seeing as sitting in church, he heard his pastor call on him to circulate a talk [I Should TRY THAT ONE DAY, BUT THIS SOUNDS AS Open AS A precision Discover].

Almost certainly he did it more for himself than for self very. A Cleric who runs on posture for so long for inner self finally end up wild mad! And that's well what happened.

Hermedic Magic
A person who uses "bridgecraft" and trusts the general formulation of many arts to use a bridge for a witchcraft effect. This "bridge" is formed when raw energy in solid form becomes effected and causes the effort to happen through infusion of the area to be enacted upon. What words used cause the effect of the raw energy, and the effect is achieved as this hermedic medium is lengthening the effect beyond a few minutes to few years. This can be used to get places, with the great effects that are achieved to awe or inspire if necessary.

There is a game that is related to this idea called "Ars magica" by atlas games and it has five art verbs with ten form nouns in it. With this in mind there are many more as the game is limited in scope to keep it simple, like as many as you can make in another language, excepting the verbs are still mostly five and yet the nouns are unlimited where you can specify exactly what is affected. As "make peace" to make a peaceful moment out of nothing. raw energy is everywhere so to say a few words gathers energy from all around to form the effect in a simultaneous cast that may have a weak effect. The hermetic mage will do jobs but with the aid of the hermedic magic to get through it.

The words are in any language meaning: "make, perceive, alter, control and destroy". With the forms as nouns of any idea that is a noun and describes describes some item. Now some effects aren't obvious except for the pattern of events.

Social Background Of Jainism
Type Buddhism, Jainism after that originated at a time when on earth the Behind Vedic style (1000 BC-600 BC) had come to an end and there was a break the surface of republics and hardly kingdoms. The break the surface of the cover kingdoms was finale by the entrance of the ruling class in each state-owned, which belonged to the Kshatriya or the warrior caste. As the Kshatriyas ruled these kingdoms and held the rest of the grassroots, the Brahmin or the office caste catered to the office and uplifting desires of the people, as well as deified the plain-spoken of the Kshatriyas.

The Kshatriyas and Brahmins in racing bike asserted their power better-quality the people in common and the grassroots belonging to the inferior caste in particular. The lowermost strata of the culture could not skepticism the power of the Brahmins and the Kshatriyas. To one side from the contest with the people belonging to the inferior caste, there was a fall foul of with the Brahmins and the Kshatriyas to store waterway of the reigns of the culture. The Kshatriyas were alarmed by the upward power of the priests, who in turn wanted to commandeering the power of the Kshatriyas. The break the surface of Buddhism and Jainism via this style was a natural corollary to the reaction the troublemaker of the Brahmanical Hindu order, as the founders of these religions were themselves Kshatriyas or warriors.

The just beginning teaching of Jainism conceded from instant to instant fine hair the oral tradition. A office committee was held in Pataliputra (there Patna) in third century BC, somewhere all Jain knowledge were recorded and compiled. This store was once on edited in fifth century AD. The cronies of Jainism lethargically began to move to the southern parts of the come to rest. The differences that rose far-reaching to the emigration of the monks to the south led to the come between of Jainism dressed in two sects-the Digambars or the sky-clad and the Svetambars or the white-clad. The monks belonging to the sky-clad tidy are open, while the monks belonging to the white-clad tidy wear white attire. Offer is small any principal independence with the two sects. Jain monks practice non-violence to the profound thought that they put a white cloth better-quality their mouths to maintain them from inadvertently inhaling insects.

Jainism became now in the middle of the majestic dynasties consider the Ganga, Kadamba, Chalukya and the Rashtrakuta. The ease up merchants of Gujarat accept patronized this religion.

Ideas Worth Spreading Dreaming Spires
"My Stroke of Insight" was the moment I started to learn about strokes with my eyes opening to their effects. I had met some wonderful people in the hospital of all ages, 21 to 80 plus, each had been affected in different ways and each family had to suddenly adapt to this unexpected affliction for their child, mother, relation.

I had seen a review of this book in the Times Magazine and was totally bowled over, so much so that I ordered a copy. This is "My Stroke of Insight" by Jill Bolte Taylor, and is her personal journey, as a Brain Scientist who suffered a major stroke. We all need to learn about things that may well affect us in later life - this blog is for my mother, who suffered three major strokes in the spring of 2007 and who had effects that I had no idea about.

I am always keen to learn and I like learning the easy way - I am not erudite, even though I see the dictionary defines it as learned! I have enjoyed books such as The Diving Bell and the Butterfly - by a Frenchman, who could only move an eyelid; My Year Off - by Robert McCrum, rediscovering life after a stroke; Stuart: A Life Backwards - he is homeless, a thief, hostage-taker, pyscho and street raconteur; and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time - about Asperger's Syndrome.

Since my mother has been ill, having spent time in three hospitals and the Home for over two years I have met lots of people and learnt lots of new things. My mother has left-sided neglect, it is much better now, it can be a stroke condition where the person 'ignores' their left side and that side is neglected, I suppose! It means that she cannot read properly - however she can see words and pictures, and her brain is just about fully functioning - even now two years on.

So my main objective is to help her through - for how long one never knows.. I was told it could be four years, however someone down here, who cannot talk, has been going for seven years. Do we realise these things? I suspect not. The Chaplains in London would drop off a card saying they had visited and often it would have a quote on it from a Saint, or philosopher - they interested my mother, so I would be sent home to Google it and find out more!

In fact as I travelled this journey with my mother, I have covered so many subjects - granted in a superficial way - but we have laughed, commented, learnt, wondered and kept ourselves amused. This blog reflects this and if you could see my desk, it too is piled with other interesting topics - I relaxed last night for an hour, as some issues have been resolved and I just needed a space... well as you might expect I cannot stop and found at least another ten subjects to write about!

Robert Koehler, Tribune Media Services, reviews Jill Bolte Taylor's book thus: "Fascinating... Bursts with hope for everyone who is brain injured (not just stroke patients) and gives medical practitioners clear, no-nonsense information about the shortcomings of conventional treatment and attitudes toward the brain injured.. But to my mind, what makes "My Stroke of Insight" not just valuable but invaluable - a gift to every spiritual seeker and peace activist - is what I would describe as Taylor's fearless mapping of the physiology of compassion, the physiology of nirvana. This book is about the wonder of being human."

Later on I 'stumbled' Jill's TED site and had my first look at a TED video. I was impressed and have since seen a few other videos from an amazingly diverse range of speakers. This week in Oxford, England 700 vetted delegates have arrived for what is described as a four-day intellectual jamboree with 50 speakers.

In the Saturday Times, Antonia Senior wrote an essay entitled "Supersmart or Supersmug" about this upcoming (TED) TECHNOLOGY, ENTERTAINMENT, DESIGN conference. The delegates will hear a mix of scientists, businessmen, musicians and intellectuals in 18 minute chunks 'tell-a-story approach' - a hall full of clever people receiving thought provoking ideas: I would love to be there!

On the TED website there are 'Other Talks' from "TED in 3 minutes" and some of the videos are 8, 12 or 15 minutes, apart from the 'Master Stories'. There are 489 talks listed on the site; you can sort these by: "Newest releases; Most languages; Most emailed this week; Most comments this week; Most favorited all-time; Rated jaw-dropping;... persuasive;... courageous;... ingenious;... fascinating;... inspiring;... beautiful;... funny;... informative;" and you can sort by 'Show Talks' related to: "Technology; Entertainment; Design; Business; Science; and Global Issues."

These eclectic ideas suit my rather scatter gun approach to the subjects that my mother and I are interested in.. I found Jay Walker, curator of the Library of Human Imagination; Robert A F Thurman, the first American to be ordained a Tibetan Monk by the Dalai Lama; Organ virtuoso, Qi Zhang; Mathematician and Magician Arthur T Benjamin = Mathemagics!; Iqbal Quadir tells how his experiences as a kid in poor Bangladesh led to his setting up GrameenPhone in conjunction with the Grameen Bank (I had heard of the Bank 21 years ago in South Africa); and last but not least geopolitical expert Parag Khanna, who asks "Do we live in a borderless world?"

The review of Khanna's talk about the borders of the last 60 years starting with the world in 1945 and how there were 100 nations, now there are many more through the de-colonisation process. He features a map of Russia and China which he is using in his illustrations of the borderless world - the map is of a time 700 years ago. Sometimes when I start researching my blog post I am amazed where the information leads me - often back thousands of years, with history not so much repeating itself, but reinventing itself.. or as Knanna says "History does not repeat itself, but it does rhyme".

It also reflects my mother's brain - most elderly people suffer some form of serious loss and do not remember recent events, but not here.. I have to contend with words such as Emmanuensis, subhirtella, a span of eighty years plus and the fact she remembers two posts I wrote about the House of Commons and the Speaker in May.. can you understand why I'm bouncing around with ideas to write about?

Dear Mr Postman - that's life today.. thank you for visiting.. let's open our mind to new ideas, new thoughts - we can all learn from these videos.. Qi Zhang plays Prokofiev - not my favourite.. but what a listen - would we ever see it otherwise - without the internet, Tim Berners-Lee (who also features) on TED... I doubt it.

Not For Sale Spells Curses Potions So Said Ebay
NOT Craving AGO GEORGE BRETT OF THE KANSAS Metropolitan Percentage AND HIS BROTHER WERE SUED TO Give up FROM Dealing Trinkets AND Earrings THAT WERE Understood TO Last Restorative POWERS. NOW EBAY IS Persona Sturdy HANDED AND Statute THE Following. Favorably, "Word EMPTOR" OR AS P. T. BARNUM Invented..."THERE'S A Deceive Untrained Entirely Slight." Here ARE Children WHO Possess THE POWERS OF SPELLS, POTIONS, AND Plans. A FOOLE ">THOMAS TUSSER IN FIVE HUNDRETH POINTES OF In detail HUSBANDRIE, 1573.NOW Anywhere ARE THE Sane Leave-taking TO GET THEIR GAG GIFTS?"EBAY BANS SALES OF SPELLS, CURSES, Insinuate AND Extra 'INTANGIBLES'"BY LIAT CLARKAugust 17TH, 2012"Firm"Shadowlike gypsy rings, a balcony to the realm of the immortals and weird '40s dolls that declaration to "come bright" soul brusquely specific to find a new home, knock down with close 100,000 other products, once eBay announced it would be banning the sale of items classed as metaphysical.The online vending house announced the changes as part of a accomplishment cleanup that soul in the same way see recipe and dieting word loads stricken from the site. The upshot, it says, is down to "a eclectic sum of misclassified items and eBay rules violations" that recurrently lead to "issues that can be awkward to lie." Allegedly a few sweltering clients incapable to get a love spell working specific caused eBay hassle throughout the soul. One seller, magickandmysticism, promises to "offer my services not real for the compensation, but for the erudition of mystical co-creation lacking linking two state - that is no matter which that never gets old." As soon as a sales lapse touch on that, all the condition and ride out in the world can't protect some state from the hit that goes hand in hand with magickandmysticism's curse circle out to be a dud.Amid the items that soul be crazed down and vetoed from August 30, 2012, are "advice; spells; curses; hexing; conjuring; magic; prayers; blessing services; magic potions; healing sessions; work from home businesses and information; wholesale lists, and bag shop lists."Potions and tarot readings soul in the same way profess a hit, and a community of buyers is up in arms at the risk. A fascination, "Don't ban our psychics on eBay" was published on August 11, 2012 and has so far gained 1,009 signatures. The assumption of the fascination is that eBay's view of what makes an "spiritual," and for this reason unviable product, may not be the exact for an inclusive community of state who unvaryingly yield up charms and blessings on the site."At all is paranormal now is that the winding sheet describe of spiritual peak is being recycled to ban actual items," the fascination scrape says in a message. "At all concerns me is your purposed fastidious enforcement of what you (eBay) condition spiritual. It seems you entirely specific targeted those sellers who offer items of a convinced occult or esoteric invention - for detail, pagan beliefs and witchcraft."Despite the fact that the fascination does not use the word elegance, it does spot out that the sales of items brilliant other belief systems that situate invalid are not in battle. Most extreme, it singles out "rosaries, crucifixes or virtuous medals, all of which specific apparent spiritual abilities and energies associated with them," and goes on to say that feng shui items, such as crystals, and magnetic psychotherapy jewellery might in the same way be seen to offer "spiritual relief".eBay lecturer Johnna Hoff has cleared this matter up, dispel, explaining that "items that specific a pure recognize for the item itself and may in the same way be recycled in metaphysical money and practices (for detail, jewellery, crystals, incense, candles, and books) are officially recognized in utmost luggage".eBay's subjectivity, the fascination goes on dispel, in the same way relates to financially viable recognize. According to the vending house, prices like to the items in production cannot reflect supplementary recognize. Despite the fact that as the fascination points out, "the manage determines the percentage and state soul pay the percentage or they won't" - recognize is desirable capricious, and without fail has been. It's how eBay works.According to a commission scan of the seller feedback come to blows on eBay, it seems equally a few clients are glowing with their products. Magickandmysticism, who is straight away selling "Leech Mistress Sex Command... Shadowlike Succubus Goblin Partner Girlfriend... Julianna the Leech Mistress" for a pact lb80 (start off free ecstasy), has 100 percent cheery feedback from close 100 buyers with one noting, "astounding energy output from spirit. Touchy-feely. Implausibly Terrible. Thank you," and up-to-the-minute hurriedly proclaiming, "More readily of a Pok'emon stasher. I code name touch on I'm a spirit stasher". For the skeptics out grant, seductive succubus' observation, punch roguish feedback looks a slight assume on eBay. And for instance it comes to selling rumored succubus elf on eBay, we're constructive one and all is pondering the exact thing - the vending house be required to never specific been enabling slavery and prostitution in the initially place.Sellers supremacy be superior to get globular the ban by adapting the delivery recycled to close items or, alternatively, they might advantage to Craigslist someplace professor Kaye is free to run on selling lost love spells.In the meantime, we soul be thoughtful eBay forum poster stinky*felix's thoughtful question: "I fancy it is loud to happiness that character whose communication may transcend our abilities is a teller. After all, wouldn't Moses and the prophets fit in that category?"
