Find your personal Jesus, go inward lad.


a message from my spirit guide 

New Testament texts took centuries to write.  They were chosen amid an ongoing conflict between those who believed the orthodox texts represented Jesus' words and deeds, and the Gnostic Christians who believed that the orthodox writings had an inferior understanding of the true knowledge the Christ.

Theodosius
And so here's where the story begins.  Emperor Theodosius in A.D. 381 desired to condemn all versions of pagan and Gnostic belief, and so issued an order that only those bishops who would sincerely confess their belief in the equal divinity of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and condemn all others, would return to their churches.  When this didn't work, Emperor Theodosius turned to brutality and extreme measures to eradicate the heresies of paganism, Gnosticism, and other spiritual beliefs and practices he thought undermined orthodox Christian beliefs.  His representatives traveled through Asia Minor, Egypt, and Syria to destroy temples and disband unorthodox religious groups.  The persecution drove some unorthodox groups underground and obliterated others, but accusations of heresy among groups of Gnostic Christians and pagans persisted.  Simply stated: If one didn't past the Holy Trinity Test, they didn't work or share into any of the community harvest.  Eventually they would be called heretics, witches, and devils.  Some of us hid alone for safety, others formed groups in caves, but most, pretended to believe.   We knew it was a lie.  We told our children the truth and the reason for acting; eventually, however, our grandchildren and great, grandchildren stopped passing down the truth of how the orthodox church stole our truth.   Fortunately, in our hearts we knew the truth.   And today, as the Catholic Priest are exposed for their perverted acts on children, and the Protestant faith are exposed for their hate in hypocrisy, we will find a way to return.  


Find your real Jesus today.  Go inwards, lad, go inwards. 

                                                                                                                              --Dr. T V Boogie

  This day marks the first of the nine days that Odin, the chief Aesir sky god, hung from the World Tree (Yggdrasil) in order to discover the meaning of the runes.  In ancient Rome, the festival of Diana, beloved goddess of the Moon, chastity, and hunting, was celebrated with feasting, mirth, and magic making.

Similarities between Trump and Buddha.



God Said:

Let there be light...Let there be a firmament...Let it divide the waters from the waters...Let the dry land appear... Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life...Let the earth bring forth...the beasts of the earth...Let us make man...

What does it really mean?  Easy: Science.  

If you strip out the poetic language, it is a sequence in which subatomic particles ('light') are followed by gas ('firmament'), followed by liquids ('the waters'), solids ('dry land'), primitive vegetable life ('grass'), primitive marine life ('the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life'), land animals ('the beasts of the earth') and finally anatomically modern humans ('let us make man').  

Looked at it this way, Genesis is consistent with the modern scientific view. 

Now, let's see what the Buddha said about how the universe was created:

Go f*&k yourself (my words not his), for such knowledge is unnecessary in order to achieve the liberation from Death and Rebirth.

Okay, so, sometimes Buddha sounded like Donald Trump when asked a direct question.  

Does this mean, Trump is Buddha and Fox News his Bodhi tree?

Dang, my brain hurts.

So it is a fact that the Earth is shifting.  I first read about it in Gizmodo.  In that article it is stated that "...because planets aren’t perfect spheres, but bumpy, pitted things whose mass is always on the move..." you get the drift.  It also went on to say the two causes are: "... the melting of the Greenland and West Antarctic ice sheets, and changes in the global distribution of water stored on land. Both of these are related to a single underlying phenomenon: climate change.

Okay, that article was written some years ago.  So, I decided to give us a 2016 update as to see where it has shifted and according to Business Insider, not only is it going to get hot as hell everywhere, the North Pole is headed south.  According to that Business Insider article, the North Pole is headed toward London!

Now, before I say something stupid about this, let me tell you that I use Green Mountain energy and drive an environmentally sound car:  a diesel Volkswagen.  I also recycle plastic (sometimes, probably more than most) and walk when I can.  I also take the damn light-rail here in Dallas which is really a bitch because the depots are really, really, hot.   Can you image how much hotter they will be with global warming.


Anyway, what I'm saying is this.  Lets all do a little more.   For one, please bring your fucking own grocery sac.  I mean, not only are they good on the environment and hold a lot more stuff, the business owners are Climate Change Deniers Benefiting Off The Destruction Of Our Planet!

Today's Bad Capitalist profile is one of the plastic bag companies that sued the city of Dallas when it put a tax on the use of plastic bags to encourage people to bring their cloth bags to cut-down on plastic waste.  The parent company is Novolex, and yes, they sued Dallas to stop the eco friendly policy because it hurt their profits.   Look at their website (http://novolex.com/) and you'll never know they were the ones.  They've completely hidden it with a false image of as a Friendly, Earth Loving company.  The first words you'll see on their homepage,  "Sustainability (their words, not mine)." 


http://novolex.com/

Yes, they had their chance to do something about climate change, and instead chose profits.  That's fine, that's not the issue, the issue is now they are stamping "Sustainability" and "Eco Friendly" all over their image to hide their true Gaia Hating actions. 

It's Orwellian, in the same sense that in Orwell's book, 1984, love is hate, and, war is peace, according to Novolex, profits are Eco friendly




Profits Are Not Eco-Friendly.

STOP BUYING THE BULLSHIT PEOPLE. 

Buy a fucking Earth Friendly Bag!

Trump: He's No Jefferson.


 During the election, Jefferson refused to discuss his religious beliefs, leading many people to believe he didn’t have any.  This prompted the Reverend John M. Mason to claim that anyone who voted for Jefferson “would do more to destroy the gospel of Jesus than a whole fraternity of infidels.”  When Jefferson was elected, some believers hid their Bibles so they wouldn’t be seized by the “the satanic Jefferson.”  Actually, Jefferson was religious and did attend church (Episcopal), though he didn’t believe in the divinity of Christ.  “To the genuine precepts of Jesus Himself,” he wrote, “I am a Christian in the only sense in which He wished any one would be; sincerely attached to His doctrines in preference to all others; ascribing to Him every human excellence and believing He never claimed any other.”
History 101, pg 255

 Say nothing of my religion.  It is known to my God and myself alone.  Its evidence before the world is to be sought in my life;  if that has been honest and dutiful to society, the religion which has regulated it cannot be a bad one.

                                  -- Thomas Jefferson.




And today, 42 presidents later:



Sir Donald Trump got 81 percent of the male white Christian vote.  

Why?

Well, just as Trump has been accepted by the wealthy 1% because of his tax-cuts for the wealthy, Trump is loved by the church because he has begun to deliver on his promise to repeal the Johnson Amendment Act which regulates political speech from the pulpit, which, once removed will be the death of the Separation of the Church and State guidelines Jefferson and the other founders fought so hard to have put in our constitution.

The fact that Trump is not a member of any church, doesn't matter.

The fact that Trump lies a lot --
Click here for a list of well-documented Trump lies.
 

The fact that Trump surrounds himself with mobsters, looks up to despots like Putin, and has said on a live tape that he makes advances on woman without their approval...

He's no Jefferson.

And, today boys-and-girls we are going to look at two great Americans from long ago and see what they had to say about this great country we call America.

Only to the white man was nature a “wilderness” and only to him was the land “infested” with “wild” animals and “savage” people.  To us it was tame.  Earth was bountiful and we were surrounded with the blessings of the Great Mystery.  Not until the hairy man from the east came and with brutal frenzy heaped injustices upon us and the families that we loved was it “wild” for us.  When the very animals of the forest began fleeing form his approach, then it was that for us the “Wild West” began. 

              —Chief Luther Standing Bear (1868-1939), Oglala Sioux 

Chief Luther Standing Bear

“God has not been preparing the English speaking and Teutonic peoples for a thousand years for nothing….He has given us the spirit of progress to overwhelm the forces of reaction throughout the earth.  He has made us adept in government that we may administer government among savage and senile peoples….And of all our race He has marked the American people as His chosen nation to finally lead in the redemption of the world.”

Now the choice is up to you to decide who was right, the Native American or Racist Politician.

Cannabis and history.


Lest we forget


Cannabis was first cultivated around 4000 B.C. in China.  Since then, it has been a popular source of fiber.  Everything from rope to clothes has been made from it.  Even the original drafts of the Declaration of Independence were on hemp paper.  But it has also been popular for its medicinal and intoxicating properties.  Queen Victoria used it to relieve her period pains, and from 1842 to 1900, nearly half of all the medicine sold in America contained marijuana.

Cannabis was introduced to the New World by the Spaniards prior to 1545.  The settlers in Jamestown brought it to Virginia in 1611.  It was found to be so useful that in 1762, Virginia awarded bounties to farmers who grew hemp and to manufacturers who converted it into various products.  Not stopping there, Virginia also penalized those who didn’t produce it. 

Just three years after Virginia was handing out its bounties, George Washington was growing cannabis at Mount Vernon, as can be seen by two entries he made in his diary.  For the dates May 12-13, 1765, he wrote, “Sowed Hemp at Muddy hole by Swamp.”  And then on August 7, 1765, he wrote, “—began to seperate (sic) the Male from the Female Hemp at Do—rather too late.”


Recreational use of the drug reached America before 1856, for in that year a series of articles written by Fitz Hugh Ludlow about his marijuana-eating experiences were published in Putnam’s Magazine and then as a book titled The Hasheesh Eater.  Ludlow was a sixteen-year-old in Poughkeepsie, New York, when he began experimenting with various drugs at the local pharmacy, including chloroform, opiates, and stimulants.

By 1883, hashish houses were established among the opium dens in New Orleans, New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, and Chicago.  The following year, hashish candy was being sold in Baltimore. 

The other of our country wasn’t the only president interested in marijuana—Thomas Jefferson also grew it.  And then, of course, there was President Bill Clinton.  Since he claims he tried marijuana without inhaling, it might be assumed that he ate some Alice B. Toklas brownies.  But either way, he definitely knew of the drug’s intoxicating properties.

Esoteric Sunday: Roots of Spiritualism.

Esoteric Sunday


There are people living among us who can see the world of angels as clearly as they can see the rocks and stones and trees that the rest of us see.  These people have many names, some of them rude, but for now, we will call them mystics. 

Sometimes they live and work within organized religion, but more often they live apart.  They tend to be solitary, perhaps lonely figures.  

Zephaniah Eddy was working on the farm one day when he saw his two sons playing with feral children he had never seen before.  When he went after these strange children, they seemed to vanish in mid-air.  The old man hauled the brothers over to the barn and beat them with a rawhide whip; he had  long worried about a history of witchcraft in his wife's family and now wanted to do everything he could to stamp it out.  


But as the boys grew older weird things continued to happen -- slates, tables and inkwells flying around the house, strange pounding noises and disembodied voices.  Spirits appeared, including a creature with white fur that the boys said sniffed at their faces when they were in bed, they grew larger until it turned into a luminous cloud with a human shape. 


Zephaniah grew increasingly alarmed and when the boys fell into trances he would sometimes beat them, even pour boiling water on them or singe them with burning coals -- anything to try to make them snap out of it.  The Eddy brothers left home as soon as they could, but then they were stoned, stabbed, manacled, tortured and even shot at by angry mobs, and they returned home, to the small, basic farm in Vermont, when their father died.  They remained scarred, sullen, suspicious of the world, but news that the farm was infested with spirits began to spread. 
 
Olcott


Henry Steel Olcott was a successful attorney.  He had been a colonel in the Union army, where he had been responsible for investigating fraud and corruption in arsenals and military shipyards.  He was also a prominent Freemason and one of a panel of three men charged with investigating the assassination of Lincoln.  In 1874 he was sent to investigate events at the Eddy's farm and he traveled there, accompanied by an artist called Kappas, whose illustrations he would use in a remarkable book, People from the Other World.

On his first day he attended a séance led by the Eddys at a local cave, Honto's cave.  Beforehand he investigated the location to make sure there were no hidden entrances or passageways.  When the séance started, he was amazed to see a gigantic Native American emerge from the cave.  Then another appeared, silhouetted on the top of the cave, then a squaw.  Afterwards Olcott could find no trace of footprints. 

He was hooked.  He stayed for two and a half months, recording some 400 spiritual manifestations.  During his stay he virtually took the farmhouse apart, plank by plank, to prove to himself that he wasn't being duped by trapdoors or other contrivances. 

Blavatsky
 A few weeks after Olcott's arrival, another visitor came to the farmhouse.  This was Madame de Blavatsky, an eccentric Russian traveler with a well-developed interest in esoteric teachings and a magnetic personality.  When she attended séances, some of the beings manifested by Eddy brothers began to speak and write in Russian.  New spirits manifested themselves before Olcott and the rest of the company, some of whom Madame Blavatsky claimed to have met earlier on her travels, including a Kurdish warrior and the leader of a band of jugglers form North Africa.  

Olcott tried to make sense of the exercises of power he was witnessing and to discern universal principles underlying them:

   What is this insensible something that envelops us like an inner atmosphere, and saturates all whom we meet?  What subtle power made the mere touch of an Apostle's robe efficacious to cure disease, and the laying on of a royal hand effect the same result?  What human lightning darting from Napoleon's eye converted every soldier into a hero as it fell upon him?  What potent spell lurked in the presence of Florence Nightingale, and made the wounded men at Scutari better, if they could barely kiss her shadow as it flitted across their beds?

In 1875  Blavatsky and Olcott co-founded the Theosophical Society, with the aim of promoting a universal brotherhood, regardless of race or creed, based on a free-thinking study of world religions.  In 1887 Madame Blavatsky published Isis Unveiled, a vast compendium of Rosicrucian lore.  She outlined a theology intended to make sense of the explosion of spiritual activity in the second half of the nineteenth century, much of it under the umbrella of Mystic Spiritualism.

Our First Non-Christian President Was...


 President Abraham Lincoln was America’s first non-Christian president.  Not only did he reject Christianity, he once wrote a booklet title Infidelity, by which he meant a lack of faith in God.  William Herndon, Lincoln’s close friend and biographer, wrote that when Lincoln “read his manuscript to Samuel Hill, his employer said to Lincoln:  ‘Lincoln, let me see your manuscript.’  Lincoln handed it to him.  Hill ran it in a tin-plate stove, and so the book went up in flames.  Lincoln in that production attempted to show that the Bible was false: first on the grounds of reason, and, second, because it was self-contradictory; that Jesus was not the son of God any more than any man.”  Later, as President, considerable pressure was placed on him to mention God in his speeches.  This he increasingly did—but he never mentioned Jesus. 

Others have done this, pretended to not be offended by the National Lie that keeps us all on our knees begging for more.  I for one, Obi-Wan Kenobi, look forward to the first president who comes clean with us on his/hers religious belief and we can finally put the lie to rest.  


Of course, telling the American people the truth has never been popular. 

Presidential campaign lying in the United States dates to the earliest days of the republic. When John Adams squared off against Thomas Jefferson in 1800, they waged a slander war by proxy: Adams’ men condemned Jefferson as an atheist (he wasn’t) and Jefferson’s side blasted Adams as a monarchist (he wasn’t). This was only the culmination of a simmering battle in which both sides tested the boundaries of the truth. After a note from Jefferson appeared in print assailing “political heresies” (widely understood to refer to Adams), Jefferson disingenuously professed that he didn’t have his rival in mind. Adams, for his part, disavowed having written a series of published letters lambasting Jefferson, neglecting to add that his son, John Quincy, had written them with his father’s blessing.


 There have been candidates who told the truth.  For one, the socialist candidate in 1920 said only truthful things:

"If you go to the city of Washington, you will find that almost all of those corporation lawyers and cowardly politicians, members of congress, and mis-representatives of the masses claim, in glowing terms, that they have risen from the ranks to places of eminence and distinction. I am very glad that I cannot make that claim for myself. I would be ashamed to admit that I had risen from the ranks. When I rise it will be with the ranks, and not from the ranks."

 “I am opposing a social order in which it is possible for one man who does absolutely nothing that is useful to amass a fortune of hundreds of millions of dollars, while millions of men and women who work all the days of their lives secure barely enough for a wretched existence.”

RIP  Eugene Victor Debs

A centuries-old festival known as Gharnta Karna Day takes place on this date in the ancient kingdom of Napal in the Himalayan Mountains.  The festival celebrates the death of Gharnta Karna, a horrible bloodthirsty Hindu demon who haunts the crossroads and is the sworn enemy of the venerated creator god Vishnu.   

Look for something to happen today from the current incarnation of Karna, that is, Donald Karna.

Disarm Your God and I’ll Disarm Mine. You disarm yours first.




Every national church or religion has established itself by pretending some special mission from God, communicated to certain individuals.  The Jews have their Moses; the Christians their Jesus Christ, their apostates and saints; and the Turks their Mohamed, as if the was to God were not open to every man alike.

Each of these churches show certain books, which they call revelation, or the Word of God.  The Jews say that their Word of God was given by God to Moses; fact to face; the Christians say that their Word of God came by divine inspiration; and the Turks say that their Word of God (the Koran) was brought by an angel from heaven.  Each of those churches accuses the other of unbelief; and for my own part, I disbelieve them all.

Who was the masked-man who wrote these words?  You guessed, the writer who gave us most of the writings for our revolution against England:  Thomas Paine.

That’s right, the America that surrounded Paine at the time, the America on the verge of revolution, was far less hospitable to secularists than it is today.  This makes total sense too since religion was designed to keep people from protesting, from thinking for themselves, from taking responsibility for their actions, and if the church of the day would have had its way, there would have been no American Revolution.  Fortunately, England’s blind-faith was so apparent to the revolutionists, that they refused to follow any church.  Now, they were not atheist, they were deist: they knew there was a higher power,  just not anything any of the churches were pushing.



Funny, but it is still this way today, but somehow, the Churches and their mindless followers are still holding on to their myths,  which in this deist’s mind, is holding us back from becoming a world with no religion.  Notice, I said, No Religion, not, No God.  Relax.  When we all come together giving up our gods, we will come together as one.

I realize, from the writings I receive, that Christians are the most unhappiest about this peaceful thought.  I guess this is because they own most of the world’s resources and so have the most to lose. The other faiths are the same though, and so no one is willing to give up his/hers gods in fear the others won’t, and both know how easy it is to kill for a god.   Killing for ones god is as old as the pains of childbirth.  The Pagans did it, the Jews did it, the Christians, Muslims, Taoist, etc..



So, you see the problem, no one is willing to disarm.

Maybe no one knows how?

It’s easy:

Clear your mind, meditate on love.  Notice the similarities in others as opposed to the differences.  And finally, Impeach Donald Trump.



It’s that simple (chuckle, I really don’t want Trump impeached, I just don't want him anywhere near kids).

Ciao All

The Last King of Rome/The Last Republican President of the USA


Tarquin the last King in Rome

Let’s go back in time boys and girls, way back, back to the last time Trumps spirit might have appeared on our planet.  The time was around 534 years BCE in Ancient Rome when King Tarquin’s misuse of power brought down the monarchy system and gave Rome its first Republic.  You see, King Tarquin already had a reputation of unsavory character when he seized the throne by murdering his predecessor, King Servius Tullius.  As new ruler, King Tarquin, “on day one,” arrested a number of patricians on phony charges so he could take their wealthy estates for himself.  This greediness alienated many in the country, but until his son, Sextus, raped the wife of the noted patriot Lucius Tarquinius Collatinus, no one did anything about it.  However, much as with President Trumps son’s recent admission of dealing with Russians for personal gain has finally gotten even the most stubborn of Republicans to wake up and take note, King Tarquin’s son crime was the proverbial last straw in Rome and Lucius Junius Brutus, the patriot of the day along with other leading nobleman, locked Tarquin and his disturbed children out of the city and dissolved the kingship.

First King Tarquin Now Trump

The Roman fathers then proceeded to create a completely new kind of government, one based on the wishes and votes of the common citizen.

Their Sleazy Sons

So, what’s it mean to you and me, today?   Well, for one, there is hope in the caos and madness the Trump Family has bestowed on our once proud country, and two, the future is certainly bright once we have a modern day Brutus stand up to the madness.  It has happened before.   Historically speaking, we are in good hands.

Coming Soon:  Our Brutus Hero!

Feeling horny today?  You should be, on August 8th in Rome each year, the people celebrated the Eve of the Festival of Venus with songs, poetry, libations, and passionate lovemaking. The goddess of love and beauty was invoked and honored with prayers.  It was also a time when sorceresses performed love magic and divinations were done for romance and marriage. 


In case you forgot:

The Roman Venus

The Roman goddess Venus.
Roman goddess Venus.

The goddess Venus was the Roman equivalent of the Greek Aphrodite, and was the essence of natural beauty.  She was associated with most all things girly, especially when it came to love and romance.  She was even considered the protector of chastity for young women, despite her reputation for having many love affairs.  You probably wouldn't expect powerful male rulers to find a goddess who is busy dealing with lovesick girls to be of much importance.  But she was.  And they did.

You see, in 217 BCE, as the Second Punic War was raging between Carthage and Rome, an oracle predicted that Rome could win, but only if they convinced Venus of Eryx to grant them her allegiance. They promised to build a temple in her honor if she would agree to help them. Apparently, she accepted--the Romans did win, and they eventually fulfilled their promise by building the temple in the middle of Rome.

Genealogy also made Venus important to many Roman rulers.  In Greek and Roman mythology, one of her love interests was the mortal prince Anchises.   From one of their romps came their son Aeneas.  He would go on to lead the survivors of Troy into Italy, guided by the celestial light of Venus.  As the Roman poet Virgil tells it, the heirs of Aeneas were the founders of Rome.  They claimed direct descent from the goddess, which gave them quite a divine status. Among the members of this prestigious family were Julius Caesar and his nephew and adopted son, Augustus.


A Virgil Love Poem:


Quote Left All these souls, after they have passed away a thousand years, are summoned by the divine ones in great array, to the lethean river. . .In this way they become forgetful of the former earthlife, and re-visit the vaulted realms of the world, willing to return again into living bodies.

Plato's Messge to Trump/Trumps DeVos attack on education.


And can there be any greater evil than discord and distraction and plurality where unity ought to reign?  or any greater good than the bond of unity?


There cannot.


And there is unity where there is community of pleasures and pains — where all the citizens are glad or sorry on the same occasions?


No doubt.


Yes; and where there is no common but only private feeling, that disorganizes a state — when you have one-half of the world triumphing and the other sorrowing at the same events happening to the city and the citizens?


Certainly.


Such differences commonly originate in a disagreement about the terms ‘min’ and ‘his’?


Exactly.


And is not that the best ordered state in which the greatest number of persons apply the terms ‘mine’ and ‘not mine’ in the same way to the same thing?


True, very true.


Or that again which most nearly approaches the condition of the individual — as in the body, when but the finger is hurt, the whole frame, drawn toward the soul and forming one realm under the ruling power therein, feels the hurt and sympathizes all together with the part afflicted, and then we say that the man has a pain in his finger; or gain, in any other part, when there is a sensation of pain or pleasure at suffering, or alleviation of suffering, the same expression is used?


“Yes,” he replied, “that is as you say; and I agree with you that in the best ordered state there is the nearest approach to this common feeling which you describe.”


Then when any one of the citizens experiences any good or evil, the whole state will make his case their own, and either rejoice or sorrow with him?


“Yes,” he said, “that will be true in a well ordered state.”

So, the War on Education continues.   It really is a sign of the times when the one thing all parties use to agree on before the Neo-Con/Right Wing Nut/1%/Racist got their way, was: education is important and will set up free!


I guess it was the "free" word that bug these greedy bastards because in their minds, Nothing Should Be Free but Tax Cuts For The Masters.   

Is this why Donald Trump appointed the most unqualified person ever as secretary of education?  Betsy DeVos, a wealthy 1% who thinks public-education should be privatized through the voucher system?


Trump Rubbing Bellybuttons with Devos.



Why is this, really?  What do they have against education for all?  Well, let’s see. 


Bormann With Arms Folded.

Well, there is the fact that the less education one has, the more likely they are to vote for despots.  As the German Evil-Doer, Martin Bormann said in 1942:
 
“Education is dangerous. It is enough if they can count to 100.  Every educated person is a future enemy.  Religion we leave to them as a means of diversion.”

Did I mention DeVos was a devout Christian?

I’m just saying.
