People haven't always avoided graves and cemeteries. In the ancient world they were monumental and part of the social fabric of life, as well as the religious (though, admittedly, mostly for the royal or the rich). In the nineteenth century, here in America, many were laid out like parks and people would have 'picnics' in them, near their loved ones' last resting places.
This is a…Continue

Once upon a time in the forests of a mountain far away
Grandmother bear lived with wolf her helper.
In a cottage high in the hills they resided and fruits they ate.
Old grandma bear was, with a long walking stick she moved.
Eloi the name was and fire its nature was.
One day she walked outside slowly paced and stared at the rising sun.
“We must go, brother wolf. We must carry a star to the child in the west.”
“There is no time to waste…Continue
Human beings are natural entities, existing in a naturally sexual world (not only did some likely lay with their horses -and so forth- the animals may have been welcoming themselves, simply consider a dog in heat!) this will never and can never be extinguished, then what necessity is a hyper sexualized culture, what are the effects of this?
The obviousness of it is clear, so that the gross has been called subtle -simply by leaving it unspoken or hinted- and the subtle no…Continue
A man rebels against the despot’s power, he has the man’s wife brought before him -along with plentiful witnesses- he then has her casually beaten for a time -only playing at the idea of rape- then he has the man -strong and willful- raped multiple times, making him weak and powerless, before those he himself is meant to protect, creating a multiple failure and hemorrhaging the psyche, control.
One may control through terror and dominance -this is fact and not fancy- this…Continue
Willing and choice are not one, whoever utilized the will, they did not come home from the candy store, their faces ashen and their backs slumped with exhaustion ‘I willed and willed -turning the corner- I found a glorious cul-de-sac, found I had to will some more!
In the statement ‘do as you will, love under will’ any election is secondary -in the act of will- thus this is not the demand for total freedom, but consider the problem of morality.
One may look at…Continue
"O God Of My Heart, In My deeds, In My Words, In My Comings and Goings, In My Dreams, In My Visions, In My Hopes, In My Wishes, In My sleeping, In My Awaking, In my Thoughts, In My heart, In My Spirit and in My Soul May Your Glory Forever Dwell".Continue
I want to tell you the story about the comet of life.
It flew around in space for thousands of years
Passed many suns and many moons
Frozen crust and well heated core.
Warm yes though sadly not warm enough to sustain life.
On one of its travels X passed a system not far away from here.
Civilization lived there that was on the verge of extinction.
Developed they were, well advanced and had technology we onlu dream of

A wandering vagabond stumbled into the village, a young man -barely a child- watched him with curiosity ‘hello there’ the child began, wishing to ask who this stranger was.
One of the elders and a master hunter appeared, cocking an arrow he waved the stranger away, still the man came on, begging for admittance to the village, the two held a short conversation -the man could show nothing of worth or recognition- an arrow was loosed and the vagabond passed ‘better safe than…Continue

Long ago an empire existed that was situated in the middle of the great sea.
Above it two suns were shining. Brothers revolving around one another.
No moon was spinning around and only 7 sisters and brothers it had.
All dancing the tango of the cosmos since the beginning of time.
It was in a system far away yet people lived there just like us.

If the stock market creates surplus by motion, how can this idea -neither good nor evil- be developed to support the global entity, as a literal part of a circulatory system?
Consider that stock market fluctuation might move with seasons -the growth comes- when companies purchase their own available stock -with the previously raised idea of investment- any may invest as a savings, only those the capable company supports gain…Continue

Many may have wondered...what is it exactly that makes one a Rosicrucian? There are certainly more than a few organizations such as AMORC, who have a membership comprised of Rosicrucians...but is it membership alone that would deem one of…Continue
In order to vote in liberty, one must recognize harmonies, if in a collective meditation this also applies, the speaker says something, that is a guide for any who does not know -what to do independently- to follow along with.
If the speaker says an attribute, you feel it is not the only one, or perhaps sufficient or appropriate to yourself, use different words -rather than internalizing a droning repetition- if you disagree then add a constructive criticism, short and in…Continue
Ether as opposed to Omega, as the flowering of the human mind, as one writes they branch out from points of integrity.
There was a man sitting by the fire (is he the survivor of a shipwreck, at a bonfire, sitting at sunset or taking refuge from rain?) from the basic imagery springs the rooted image, it spreads to the degree of formation, yet one need not paint the full landscape, the painter knows to use lines to hint at trees, allowing the perceiver to fill…Continue

I hope all is well with everyone and you had a great weekend - what a great Esoteric Theater broadcast we had yesterday! I'm sorry if anyone couldn't make it, but rest assured it's in the Theater Group as an archive if you'd like to watch/listen.
We really do dislike having to send emails like this and hope someday we can be sending much better news, however the reminder for community donations, as well as some other hopeful methods have not…Continue
Trimming a full beard: forestry creates value and differentiated uses, by limiting the forms available, also by maintaining products with recurring value.
Fur Trade: protection of environmental habitats, stabilization of animal populations -mere replacement of product lost to time- partly directing by introducing new product.
Ivory trade: reverence of the dead -by honoring their remains and family heirlooms- only recognized products gain recurring value, land…Continue
Karma is what one believes they must do, to meet with god in complex unity -as themselves- because they cannot let go, let go of what is good and needed -why do evil people gain?- let go of what is bad in oneself -is repentance any better for pragmatism?- what is it to be poor in spirit, beyond good and evil?
Darma as living one's purpose.

A mosquito is merely an aspect of an interlinking whole -could it be possible to see- one leaving varieties of oils in shallow water, affecting habit and composition by environment, could a resort spring up in a mosquito heavy population (with hundreds of pools filled mixed water, oils and fruit/vegetable essence, these are the feeding grounds) could mosquitos become living acupuncture, deepening the root of interconnection, deepening the complexity by allowing each, they fully express…Continue
The Stone, The Lamas, and Their Country
I'd like to take a moment and note the long history of disputes and contentions that have existed between the Panchen and Dalai Lamas in the past. Particular to my own interests, it is the 9th Panchen Lama that holds the most import; I'll focus on him in this posting.…

For those who do not know the history of the last Panchen Lama and the current holder of the title, it is an absorbing story worth investigating. Here is some news from the Times of India:
