Belief – A Redundant Idea

Updated from June 2016

As we think, so we become

Beliefs are the thoughts and convictions that we generally hold to be true, they are ideas without substance having no actual proof or evidence. Beliefs may contribute to or hinder our development and understanding of the world, and who we are.

People used to believe the earth was flat, but today we know it’s round from testimony and scientific consensus, or you maybe you have flown and seen the curvature of the Earth. The erroneous belief has been replaced by acquired or direct knowledge, therefore we no longer have to believe because we know. But so many were so attached to that particular belief, it took hundreds of years to

The Human Condition

Calling for the transformation of the humanity

Correspondence to The Human Condition

Promotional ideas from WTM have been appearing in my Facebook feed so I spent some time reading and listening to their ideas which I find find noble and liberating. There is no doubt a major transformation is necessary to prevent the total destruction of our species yet our elected leaders continue to play lip service to our troubles while engaging more deeply in games of destruction.

Unfortunately the intellect can only grasp so much and is therefore limited. The human mind is indeed like a computer so badly programmed that it barely functions as it should and instead it’s continually scheming to obtain temporary

Caste and Class

Social divisions throughout history

In looking at the world we have naturalism which sees biology as being the determining factor in life, modern humanism that sees cultural norms as the defining factor which is where we are now, yet this is based on the perception of power and possession of animalism or base survival.

The natural world isn’t fair, just or kind. It’s a place where the strong dominate, exploit, use or even kill the weak because it’s the natural order of life. In the race for survival, the fittest and strongest life-form on Earth are humans. The natural world is not devoid of compassion and kindness, it’s just that the more powerful rule over the weaker and from a

The Demise of Civilisations

Why do civilisations end?

With all its wisdom why was the civilized ancient world not able to withstand or overthrow the invaders?

Wisdom can not save one when times change and the evil attacks and invades. The physical forces who were guided by greed and selfishness destroyed all ancient world slowly and gradually. The fall of ancient world’s last developed times began decaying about 5500 years ago, when Mahabharata war had ended.

The ancient civilized world began its decay and people were misled and they began to fight and lay claims to others properties and this was also coincidental of commencement of Kali Yuga [an epoch of machine] as mentioned in Vedic texts. There upon greed led communities invaded

Eight Steps to Happiness

And a solution to end suffering

Master, what is the secret to happiness?””Not to argue with idiots””Master. I disagree that this can be the secret” “Yes, you are right”

There are many benefits to putting the instructions of Langri Tangpa’s “Eight Verses of Training the Mind” into practice. The practice helps us to eliminate the ignorant mind of self-cherishing and self-grasping, the root of all suffering and problems.

It shows us how to transform adverse conditions into the spiritual path, giving us the opportunity to use our daily problems and issues that would normally be obstacles as our actual daily practice so we can make progress in our spiritual practice.

We live in spiritually degenerate times. Fewer people

Does History Matter?

Why should you care?

To some history matters and to others it doesn’t. For some who are completely content, all that matters is this moment but for those who feel uncertain about the nature and purpose of life, they look to history for clues and reasons for our existence.

In examining our history, the field of archaeology has developed. But this is not an exact science and the results of all our archaeological excavations and research produce results and answers which are suppositions and not facts. Of course many archaeologists and researchers dress up the evidence to fit into their particular theory.

Classical mythology is that of the Christian Bible in which all Christian biased researchers interpret all evidence as

Who Was Abraham?

In his History of the Jews, the Jewish scholar and theologian Flavius Josephus (37 – 100 A.D.), wrote that the Greek philosopher Aristotle had said: “…These Jews are derived from the Indian philosophers; they are named by the Indians Calani.” (Book I:22.)

Clearchus of Soli wrote, “The Jews descend from the philosophers of India. The philosophers are called in India Calanians and in Syria Jews. The name of their capital is very difficult to pronounce. It is called ‘Jerusalem.'”

“Megasthenes, who was sent to India by Seleucus Nicator, about three hundred years before Christ, and whose accounts from new inquiries are every day acquiring additional credit, says that the Jews ‘were an Indian tribe or sect called Kalani…'” (Anacalypsis, by

Girls are Not Sluts

A language correction

Slut is a derogatory term and unhelpful in any society and as the world slides deeper into strife, it’s totally unhelpful and uncalled for and remember one of the key phrases with and religion is ‘judge not so that ye shall not be judged’.

Labels that are applied to anyone are limiting and therefore depressing, and depression is what we need to lift the world out of. But in many societies today woman are expected to dress for a sexual effect and yet if they have sex without someone else’s consent, they are derided.

This is not only unfair, it is also unjust and offensive to all concerned even though the perpetrator may believe they are

Virginity

The true meaning of the word

drawing by Jem Magbanua

The Church would have you believe I was a whore, but I tell you now that the Church is the whore for they would have you believe that woman is tainted and that the sexual passions between a man and a woman are evil. Yet it is here in the magnetics of passion, that the womb of ascension is created. ~ Mary Magdalen ♥

“Ancient moon priestesses were called virgins. ‘Virgin’ meant not married, not belonging to a man – a woman who was ‘one-in-herself’. The very word derives from a Latin root meaning strength, force, skill; and was later applied to men: virle. Ishtar, Diana, Astarte, Isis
