Fiery Thoughts ...

507. Urusvati knows that the idea of intuition is often misinterpreted, or even abused. Even those who accept it do not understand it properly. They often suppose that intuition can be acquired without effort, and simply falls upon them from the sky. They do not think about the vast accumulations intuitive individuals must have and the enormous tensions they must endure.

 

We need not repeat to you about the existence of the subtle links between the worlds. You will often have to remind people about treating intuition with care. It is hard to imagine how few there are in whom this quality is already developed. Even then, for some of them it manifests itself only in certain ways. For example, if someone has premonitions regarding his dear ones, or can foretell physical events, or receive insights about himself, that does not mean that such a person can also intuit other kinds of events. One can expect no more from people than they can give. It is a mistake to ask of people more insights than they are capable of. The sea of subtle vibrations is inexhaustible. It cannot be embraced by one person.

 

It is important to know that the development of intuition requires an understanding of the condition of those around one. Only in a state of mutual caring can the inner voice be made clear. It is possible to develop the inner voice until it becomes continuous, but because of the chaotic vibrations on Earth, We do not advise you to try to overcome the conditions of the dense world to such an extent. Imagine someone who, amidst earthly activities, unceasingly listens to his inner voice. He would become like one who abandons his work in order to listen to the radio! He would perish, without sleep or nourishment.

 

Therefore, let the inner voice ring only when it is struck by a consonant vibration. In this way one will not abandon the earthly path, and will be in contact with the Higher World without disrupting one’s inner equilibrium. Throughout the ages, teachers have advised that the earthly path should be lived in earthly conditions. Only temporarily may one leave one’s earthly tasks, and then only for the purpose of bringing more help to humanity.

 

People should learn to safeguard all the treasures entrusted to them, most especially psychic energy. It must not be thought that because it is the primary energy, it requires no care. Every cosmic substance is in need of harmony. On this is the economy of the Universe built.

 

The Thinker declared, “Safeguard harmony, for it can be broken as easily as the finest vessel.”

Did Joan of Ark see Fairies?-10/17 Beach Combing, Anyone who has ever read a book on Joan of Ark will know that the English-hater was supposed to have had some kind of relations with fairies. But what exactly were those relations? The trial at which Joan battled for her life in 1431 included a long list of charges against the Maid. Some of these charges were based on her scandalous actions since joining war with the Burgundians and their English allies, e.g. her wearing of men’s clothes, a tic that was bound to worry the gender conscious Middle Ages. However, others were based on rumours about Joan’s adolescence. Rather than quote the trial records (though the relevant passages are cut and paste below) Beach has decided to bring together the accusations and then Joan’s rebuttal (at least as recorded by an unsympathetic secretary).
1) Joan claimed that fairies were not evil.
2) Joan had some of her visions of St Margaret and St Catherine near a fairy tree and a fairy fountain, the implication being that they were fairies i.e. demons.
3) Jean danced around said tree and left garlands of flowers there as sacrifices to the fairies.
4) Her godmother was a fairy seer who had traffic with the fairies and who had taught Joan some of her witchcraft. What were Joan’s answers to these charges? As to point (1) Joan herself walked into a simple trap set by the lynch mob of priests and bishops before her, saying she didn’t know whether fairies were evil. True, there was a common European idea that fairies were, like many of us, caught between heaven and hell, an idea that continued into the nineteenth century. But would you really admit this to a panel of clergymen?! Joan had courage (so much courage), but she lacked theological smarts. It is telling that when she was accused of not denying the evil natures of fairies she did not seem to understand the accusation. Elsewhere she says that those who went out on Thursdays to consort with the fairies (what vanished marvellous worlds!) were guilty of witchcraft, but this was left to one side in the digest and summary. ...

Mysterious Crimean Pyramids-10/17, piramidasunca.ba, Written by Press team -- Within many centuries the pyramids were not discivered neither by archeologists, nor geologists or local residents. Certainly, such discovery suggests mystification. But researchers led by Vitaly Gohom consider, that huge constructions remained “invisible” for one simple reason: all Crimean pyramids are completely covered by land. The first pyramid was opened absolutely accidentally. Everything stared when some years ago a group of geologists, led by Candidate of Technical Science,assistant professor Vitaly Anatolevich Gohom, established the presence of thermal waters. And they were also searching for vantage ground for water well drilling near Sevastopol. The absence of pure water is an old trouble of Crimea and this very group have been created for investigation of underground sources of water. By chance, scientific came across super-high-frequency radiation which source was enigmatically localised near the Earth surface. The receiver recorded ultra-high frequency-a field in radius of 100 metres gave a nudge about presence of some mistery object. Have started to dig a hole by hand. ...

Unprecedented exploration of Antikythera wreck yields new treasures-10/19 Ancient Origins, In the first underwater exploration of its kind, a Greek and international team of divers and archaeologists have used a new high-tech exosuit to reach deep waters in which the world-renowned Antikythera wreck has lain for two thousand years. Their investigation proved that remnants of the ships luxury cargo has survived for millennia on the sea floor as new treasures have been retrieved from the depths. According to a media release by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), the rescued antiquities include tableware, ship components, and a giant bronze spear that would have belonged to a life-sized warrior statue. The Antikythera wreck, located off the island of Antikythera in the Aegean Sea, is a famous underwater archaeological site thrown into the spotlight in 1900 when researchers discovered an incredible mechanical device, now known as the Antikythera mechanism. The metallic device consists of at least 30 different types of gears and is so complex that many consider it to be the first human-made analogue computer. After decades of research, scientists were able to determine that it shows the positions of the sun, moon, and planets as they move through the zodiac, predicts solar and lunar eclipses, and even marked key events such as the Pan-Hellenic games. The discovery of this unique form of ancient technology, along with other treasures, including finely carved bronze and marble statues, glassware, jewellery, and coins, led researchers to wonder what else may lie within the shipwreck. ...

Wonder Boys-10/19 New York Review of Books, by Tamsin Shaw;
Divine Fury: A History of Genius by Darrin M. McMahon Basic Books, 312 pp., $29.99. Anyone who frequents research libraries in Europe or North America will know that it is not unusual to encounter in them individuals who appear to be rather introverted and yet sport oddly ostentatious hairstyles, with unkempt shocks of hair sprouting with peculiar abandon from their pallid male scalps. You can still encounter the odd Yeatsian dandy, but the slightly disheveled Einsteinian archetype seems largely to have prevailed in the academy, just as the Beethovenian archetype has long prevailed in the world of music. This phenomenon alone, the slightly embarrassing aping of the superficial attributes of genius, reveals an ersatz quality to the idea of genius we have inherited; even in the most solemn temples to intellectual achievement the notion is awkwardly associated with a good deal that is theatrical, preposterous, ridiculous. Darrin McMahon’s Divine Fury does not shy away from the preposterous and the ridiculous, or from the disturbing and dangerous. Many of us now use the term “genius” as a simple expression of wonder, referring to a person or an achievement that we find inexplicably brilliant. But as McMahon’s rich narrative shows, across its long history the term has accrued connotations that go far beyond this commonsense core, leading us into the realms of superstition, bad science, and subservience to questionable forms of authority. And yet his book ends on an unexpected note of regret that “genius” in the most extravagant sense of the term has given way to more trivial uses, to a culture in which everyone has a genius for something and where even infants might be “baby Einsteins.” The cult of the “great exception,” the unfathomably and inimitably great human being, he tells us, has justifiably waned. Nevertheless, McMahon’s closing words are elegiac, hinting that its loss might somehow diminish us. In his intriguing story not only is the age of genius dead; the seeds of its destruction were sown very early on. ...

Holy Hermes! Mosaic Revealed in Greece's Amphipolis Tomb-10/17 NBC/AP, Archaeologists digging through an ancient tomb in Amphipolis in northern Greece have uncovered a floor mosaic that covers the whole area of a room seen as the antechamber to the main burial site. The mosaic, 3 meters (10 feet) long and 4.5 meters (15 feet) wide, depicts a horseman with a laurel wreath driving a chariot drawn by two horses and preceded by the god Hermes. According to a Culture Ministry announcement on Sunday, Hermes is depicted here as the conductor of souls to the afterlife. The mosaic is made up of pebbles in many colors. A circular area of the mosaic is missing, but authorities say enough fragments have been found to reconstruct a large part. Archaeologists have dated the mosaic to the last quarter of the fourth century B.C., consistent with their belief the grave contains the remains of a contemporary of Alexander the Great — most likely a relative or one of Alexander's generals. ...

Enoch’s Angels-10/21 The Anxious Bench, by Philip Jenkins -- At some point in Jewish history, texts began referring to angels with specific names like Gabriel or Michael, and that trend reflects a basic shift in concepts of the supernatural hierarchy. That shift is significant itself in terms of the history of Western religion, but it particularly matters for anyone interested in early (or medieval) Christianity. One influential witness to angel lore is the Book of Enoch, which in the form we have it is a combination of at least five separate works, dating from different eras. The heaviest concentration of angelic characters comes from the early section of 1 Enoch called the Book of the Watchers, which describes how fallen angels mated with human women, and produced the monstrous Nephilim (The story was recently recycled in the film Noah). This portion certainly predates the late second century BC. It probably dates from the third century, but conceivably might have been written in the fourth. I am here using the 1917 R. H. Charles translation. For a recent scholarly version, see Miryam T. Brand, “1 Enoch,” in Louis H. Feldman, James L. Kugel and Lawrence H. Schiffman, eds., Outside the Bible (Philadelphia: Jewish Publication Society, 2013), vol ii, 1359-1452. Brand, incidentally, points out that the original Genesis text concerning Enoch referred to him in the context of ha-elohim, which today is translated “God.” For a Second Temple reader, though, it implied “angels.” Reading 1 Enoch, we immediately seem to be in a world that is quite recognizable from early Christianity, not least in the searing vision of a Day of Judgment with which the work opens. And it is the Parables of Enoch above all that show the term Son of Man being used in a Messianic sense. Also familiar from early Christian literature is the concept of a holy man – Enoch – reporting on his travels through the supernatural heavenly world. It is in the Book of the Watchers that we encounter several angelic names, grouped in a familiar pattern. We read about the sinful world before the Flood. “And then Michael, Uriel, Raphael, and Gabriel looked down from heaven and saw much blood being shed upon the earth, and all lawlessness being wrought upon the earth” (9.1-3. Brand’s translation gives Michael, Gabriel, Suriel and Uriel). Not only do we find the good angels or archangels here, but they are specifically complaining to God about the havoc being wrought by their evil counterparts, fallen angels like Azazel and Semjaza/Shemihaza. ...

AWAKE – The Life of Yogananda-10/17 Om Times, An Interview with the Directors of AWAKE – The Life of Yogananda Directed by Paola di Florio and Lisa Leeman -- The Life of Yogananda is an unconventional biography about an Indian Swami who brought yoga and meditation to the West in the 1920s. This feature documentary explores the life and teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, who authored the spiritual classic Autobiography of a Yogi, which has sold millions of copies worldwide and is a go-to book for seekers, philosophers and yoga enthusiasts today. It was the only book that Steve Jobs had on his iPad, and he arranged to give away 800 copies of it to the dignitaries who attended his memorial service. It was also a point of entry into Eastern mysticism for George Harrison, Russell Simmons and countless yogis. By personalizing his own quest for enlightenment and sharing his struggles along the path, Yogananda made ancient teachings accessible to a modern audience, attracting many followers and ultimately helping millions of seekers today to turn their attention inwards, bucking the temptations of the material world in pursuit of self-realization. Filmed over three years with the participation of 30 countries around the world, the film examines the world of yoga, modern and ancient, East and West. While archival material from the life of Yogananda (who died in 1952) creates a spine for the narrative, the film stretches the dimensions of a standard biography. Footage includes stylized interviews, metaphoric imagery and recreations, taking us from holy pilgrimages in India to Harvard’s Divinity School and its cutting-edge physics labs, from the Center for Science and Spirituality at the University of Pennsylvania to the Chopra Center in Carlsbad, California. ...

What heaven's really like - by a leading brain surgeon who says he's been there: Read his testimony before you scoff...it might just shake your beliefs-10/18 Daily Mail, By Dr Eben Alexander -- When I was a small boy, I was adopted. I grew up remembering nothing of my birth family and unaware that I had a biological sister, named Betsy. Many years later, I went in search of my biological family, but for Betsy it was too late: she had died. This is the story of how I was reunited with her — in Heaven. Before I start, I should explain that I am a scientist, who has spent a lifetime studying the workings of the brain. My adoptive father was a neurosurgeon and I followed his path, becoming an neurosurgeon myself and an academic who taught brain science at Harvard Medical School. Although nominally a Christian, I was sceptical when patients described spiritual experiences to me. My knowledge of the brain made me quite sure that out-of-body experiences, angelic encounters and the like were hallucinations, brought on when the brain suffered a trauma. And then, in the most dramatic circumstances possible, I discovered proof that I was wrong. Six years ago, I woke up one morning with a searing headache. Within a few hours, I went into a coma: my neocortex, the part of the brain that handles all the thought processes making us human, had shut down completely. At the time, I was working at Lynchburg General Hospital in Virginia, and I was rushed to the emergency room there. The doctors ascertained that I had contracted meningitis — a rare bacterial strain of E coli was in my spinal fluid and eating into my brain like acid. My survival chances were near zero. I was in deep coma, a vegetative state, and all the higher functions of my brain were offline. Scans showed no conscious activity whatever — my brain was not malfunctioning, it was completely unplugged. But my inner self still existed, in defiance of all the known laws of science. For seven days, as I lay in that unresponsive coma, my consciousness went on a voyage through a series of realms, each one more extraordinary than the last — a journey beyond the physical world and one that, until then, I would certainly have dismissed as impossible. For thousands of years, ordinary people as well as shamans and mystics have described brief, wonderful glimpses of ethereal realms. I’m not the first person to have discovered that consciousness exists beyond the body. What is unique in my case is that I am, as far as scientific records show, the only person to have travelled to this heavenly dimension with the cortex in complete shut-down, while under minute observation throughout. There are medical records for every minute of my coma, and none of them show any indication of brain activity. In other words, as far as neuroscience can say, my journey was not something happening inside my head. Plenty of scientists have a lot of difficulty with this statement. My experience undermines their whole belief system. But the one place I have found ready acceptance is in church, where my story often tallies with people’s expectations. ...

Screenwriter of ‘Gone With the Wind’ Reincarnated in the Midwest?-10/19 Epoch Times, By Tara MacIsaac -- When Lee was 2 ½ years old, he started talking about his “other mommy.” When he was 3 ½, he started becoming upset because he couldn’t go to his “other house,” and he needed to get back to work. He would argue that his middle name was Coe, though it wasn’t, and that his birthday was June 26, though it was actually June 21. He said he had a daughter named Jennifer. He developed an obsession with Hollywood, and he said that’s where he lived. His parents realized he may be talking about a past life. They asked him what he did in Hollywood. He said he made movies. They asked if he acted, and he said he didn’t, he wrote movies. They started naming off movies, and about the 5th or 6th movie they named was “Gone With the Wind.” ...

The George Washington Papers at the Library of Congress, 1741-1799 George Washington to George Washington Snyder, October 24, 1798-9/10
The Writings of George Washington from the Original Manuscript Sources, 1745-1799. John C. Fitzpatrick, Editor. Mount Vernon, October 24, 1798.
Revd Sir: I have your favor of the 17th. instant before me; and my only motive to trouble you with the receipt of this letter, is to explain, and correct a mistake which I perceive the hurry in which I am obliged, often, to write letters, have led you into. It was not my intention to doubt that, the Doctrines of the Illuminati, and principles of Jacobinism had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more truly satisfied of this fact than I am. The idea that I meant to convey, was, that I did not believe that the Lodges of Free Masons in this Country had, as Societies, endeavoured to propagate the diabolical tenets of the first, or pernicious principles of the latter (if they are susceptible of separation). That Individuals of them may have done it, or that the founder, or instrument employed to found, the Democratic Societies in the United States, may have had these objects; and actually had a separation of the People from their Government in view, is too evident to be questioned. My occupations are such, that but little leisure is allowed me to read News Papers, or Books of any kind; the reading of letters, and preparing answers, absorb much of my time. With respect, etc.
Editor: I've wrote about the differences in European and American Freemasonry here, (It's in the middle of the page). Perhaps if I have time, I will expound on President Washington's comments.

Ridley Scott, Giannina Facio Acquire Faith-Based ‘Embraced By The Light’-10/22

Masaru Emoto has Passed Away-10/17 Om Times, R.I.P Doctor Emoto -- Dr. Masaru Emoto a renown scientist that had been visually documenting molecular changes in water by means of his photographic techniques, and in doing so, had expanded our concept of Consciousness has passed away this morning in Japan. His beloved wife was with him. Since he became ill in Shanghai, he has received so much love and gratitude from his dear friends of all over the world. He was very encouraged and happy to receive your kind messages with love. His last word was “Arigato”. (“Thank you” in Japanese) We believe his last word was to you, everybody. He was so grateful for you and thanked you all so very much. He used to say, “Life is LOVE which is a gift from God and parents, and DEATH is gratitude for going to a new dimension”. So now he is in another dimension and continues to look over us warmly with love and gratitude. We are going to carry on his mission of spreading the power of “love and gratitude”. Masaru Emoto was born July 22, 1943 and he was a Japanese author and entrepreneur who claimed that human consciousness has an effect on the molecular structure of water. Emoto’s conjecture has evolved over the years. Initially, he believed that water could take on the “resonance” of “energy” which was directed at it and that polluted water could be restored through prayer and positive visualization. In 1986 he established the IHM Corporation in Tokyo. In October of 1992 he received certification from the Open International University as a Doctor of Alternative Medicine. Subsequently he was introduced to the concept of micro cluster water in the US and Magnetic Resonance Analysis technology. The quest thus began to discover the mystery of water. Emoto has stated,
“Water is the mirror that has the ability to show us what we cannot see. It is a blueprint for our reality, which can change with a single, positive thought. All it takes is faith, if you’re open to it.” ...

Water Crystal Healing at Reverse Spins, Review by William C. House-- Two names ring out as giants in the field of sound and music research. They are Hans Jenny and Masaru Emoto. Both used inanimate objects to discover how sound impacts their physical makeup. Hans Jenny used sand and milk. Masaru Emoto uses ice crystals. Few, if any, have equaled Emoto-san's scientific method for showing how rythyms affect water, ice and since we are about 70% water—us. The classical music collected for this book ( on a two CD set) created beautiful ice crystals indicating profund opportunities for healing. Mr. Emoto sees energy as vibrations moving through matter. These frequences are unique to various forms of matter, including organs and diseases. They are called hado which translates as "wave motion" or "vibration." Looking at the pictures of ice crystals while listening to the corresponding music can fascillitate healing by assisting the mind to atune with the vibration. ...

Ornament of the Great Vehicle Sutras: Maitreya's Mahayanasutralamkara with Commentaries-10/19 by Khenpo Shenga and Ju Mipham, Amazon Hardcover – November 11, 2014 -- Amazon description:
This new translation of one of the most important texts of Mahayana Buddhism makes a clear case for why we should strive energetically to achieve the unsurpassable state of enlightenment for the sake of all sentient beings, and having formed that intention, how we should practice the bodhisattva path. A comprehensive description of the bodhisattva's view, meditation, and enlightened activities. Bodhisattvas are beings who, out of vast love for all sentient beings, have dedicated themselves to the task of becoming fully awakened buddhas, capable of helping all beings in innumerable and vast ways to become enlightened themselves. To fully awaken requires great generosity, patience, energy, discipline, concentration, and wisdom, but we all have the potential to develop these qualities since we have the seed of buddhahood. The classic verses of the Ornament of the Great Vehicle Sūtras are accompanied by two renowned Tibetan commentaries, each translated for the first time in a modern language. The commentaries draw on the tremendous richness of the Indo-Tibetan tradition, discussing the message of the verses with lucid engagement.

Reincarnation – The Ghost Inside My Child-10/19 The Wake Up Call, By Rob Portinga -- What if your child remembered a life before they were born? How would you feel if they told you specific and traumatic details of another time and place? Children of all ages who claim they remember previous lives are quite common-and hundreds of these accounts have been scientifically documented, researched and studied, both in the United States and abroad since the 1950s. We were joined today by Sandra Alvarez, the producer for the Lifetime Movie Network series, Ghost Inside My Child. “Ghost Inside My Child” is an LMN series that explores these families’ most guarded secret: their child lived before. The series shares what many feel is inexplicable and confounding. These young children are having very real memories and very real experiences that belong someone else. Also joining us was Jennifer Williams, the mother of one of the children featured in the program. Jennifer’s son Eric, is believed to have been Sidney Coe Howard, who wrote the screenplay for Gone With The Wind and died in 1939 in a farming accident before the film was ever released. Ghost Inside My Child is now looking for more families with true stories to share. If your child has told you details of his or her inexplicable memories of another life, they would like to hear your story. Email mychildstory@yahoo.com with details. And stay tuned for our follow up show on March 15th where we will further explore the topic of reincarnation and past life experiences. You can also find out more on their Facebook page. ...

British family shocked at text from dead grandmother-10/19

Dane Rudhyar and Blavatsky-10/17 Blavatsky News, The Autumn 2014 issue of SPICA, the Postgraduate Journal for Cosmology in Culture from the Sophia Centre for the Study of Cosmology in Culture at the University of Wales, carries “A Critical Biography of Dane Rudhyar” by Sanaa Tanha, which looks at the influences on his multifaceted career as composer, artist, writer, and astrologer:
Antiphony, Dane Rudhyar, 1949 As assumed by his biographers, the theosophical influence on Rudhyar’s astrology cannot be understated, but evidence for a specification has emerged from this paper: he was primarily influenced by Theosophy’s basic tenets as divulged in Blavatsky’s The Secret Doctrine, and had little patience for the later theosophical establishment of dogma. In particular, Rudhyar endorsed, elaborated and perfected Blavatsky’s concept of ‘wheels within wheels’ - of cyclic evolution and the consequent expectation of a ‘New Age’, in an elegant and all-embracing astrological teleology based on the cycle. ...
