March 22nd, Esoterically Speaking

So it's March 22nd, what a day, Esoterically speaking that is.  Did you know that the body of a 12-year-old boy named William was found in a forest just outside Norwich, England, on this day by a zealous monk named Thomas of Monmouth.  In his epic biography, the Life and Passion of William of Norwich, the monk stated that the child had been sacrificed by Jews in a gruesome ritual mocking the crucifixion of Jesus -- a lie with devastating implications.  Many experts consider the book to be the origin of what historian Alan Dundes called "one of the most bizarre and dangerous legends ever created by the human imagination," the Blood Libel.  This widespread belief that Jews routinely killed Christian children in secret rituals has endured for centuries, influenced anti-Semites from Martin Luther to Adolf Hitler, and caused untold misery to millions of innocent people over the centuries. 
 

Pope Clements V
Not all was bad on this day for in 1312 Pope Clement V ordered the arrest of the Knights Templar for "immorality and heresy."  That's right, his trusted army that helped him kill off other enemies of the church, such as the Cathars just a hundred years earlier for being, well, as I have written before, like Buddhist, had grown too powerful for the Mega Church of the day and so had to be dealt with as all enemies of the Mega church are today, prison and execution.  Yes, those Christian's Knights in Satan's Army who's legacy is still with us in the form of today's banking system, were made to go underground with the rest of us.  Na, nah, na, non, nah!  Of course, they brought that evil

Baphomet with them to stink up the whole place, and so never come over here to the bright side with light.  The esoteric side of the spectrum we stay on here at EsotericDaily.com, so don't worry.
 
Jane Lead
On March 22 in 1677, in London England, Spiritual writer Jane Lead wrote that during the night she had been "cast as into a magical Sleep, where I saw my self carried into a Wilderness."  There she found herself in a peaceful, natural environment.  Before she could enjoy these circumstances, however, a being that she had seen before and two other female entities "did make a kind of Assault upon me; but one for he Females was more fierce, and did give my outward Skin a prick, as with a sharp Needle.  Upon which I called for Angelical aid to succor me, or else too hard they would be.  Whereupon I was parted from them, and saw them in that place no more..." 
 
Lead writes that after this vision, before waking up in bed, she was told that she needn't worry, that it would not happen to her again. 


Finally, on this day in 1923, the world-famous mime named Marcel Marceau was born.  Now there's a man to be taken seriously.
