Numerology and The New Millennium

Pythagoras is said to have set up schools to study this subject. As a Numerologist I believe that this discipline can be used to analyse important and changing influences that affect us and the world that we live in. It can also be used as an instrument for analysing people’s individual personalities and destinies. Numerology is a positive discipline inasmuch as it supports free will and does not make fatalistic predictions. Instead, it focuses on the prevalent trends in our lives and communicates what actions and attitudes are required in order to achieve happiness and success. We always have a choice. We can choose to adopt the spirit of this advice or we can decide to go our own way. …

The Numerology of Elvis Presley – The King of Rock and Roll

Before Elvis, there was nothing. John Lennon How much greater praise could be given by one music superstar, John Lennon, to another, Elvis Presley? But Beatles icon John Lennon was not the only musician to applaud the King of Rock and Roll. World renowned Twentieth Century American musician, conductor, composer, pianist, and author Leonard Bernstein said this of Presley, Elvis is the greatest cultural force in the Twentieth Century. Could such plaudits be more profound, especially when offered by two esteemed global icons? It can’t get any better than to be known as the “greatest cultural force” in a century or to have someone say that before you there was nothing! Any individual with such laurels dripping from his cape …

I don’t believe in religion but I believe in God!

Imagine for a moment that there is no God! That we are just here. That we come into being and pass away and the rest of the human race after us carries our memories and in some cases our genes. Is that such a bad thing?Do we cease to have meaning? Cease to love one another any less? Cease to struggle? Cease to care? Or do we start to just live moment by moment and understand that our actions, our words, our deeds are of our own making and therefore our responsibility. Be remembered for what you do here! The reward is your life and the world you create, the memories and positve change your life causes.Don’t wait for the …

Indonesian Shamanic Methods of Fasting & Austerities

Fasting and asceticism are essential practices in Javanese Kejawen and shamanism–especially Indonesian shamanism. Most of the unusual and unique powers acquired in Indonesian occultism are dependent upon the mastery of these disciplines with their many forms and variations. Another important factor that must not be overlooked in the acquisition of these occult powers is the knowledge of the correct timing such as the proper month and day which magickal rites and disciplines are to be commenced, and this is intrinsically linked with the Javanese calender; this however, will not be dealt with in this article for it is beyond its scope. We will mainly focus on the many variations of fasting and the austerities carried-out in Javanese mysticism/occultism. Fasting as …

How To Be A Spiritual Atheist

A spiritual atheist? Perhaps it’s a strange concept if you only think spirituality has to mean a belief in a god. Do the two have to be related? Many people think of the historical Buddha as a spiritual person, but most don’t know that he never expressed a belief in a god. He even discouraged his followers from such “speculation,” preferring that they work on their salvation in this world. Computer Spirituality Imagine a computer that has begun to get so complex and powerful that it starts to ask questions “outside the box.” It starts to become conscious. The first thing it would realize is that for all its computing capacity, it is still very limited. The humans who use …

How much of the Bible is literally true?

If you don’t believe the Bible literally, does that mean you must conclude that Christianity is based on biblical myth – literally fiction and stories passed down, generation to generation, from our ancient ancestors? That the only way to read the Bible is to read it metaphorically or metaphysically? Absolutely not. There’s great history recounted in the Bible. But the Bible is more than just history. It is a book of faith written by people who had undergone a transforming spiritual experience or who believed they had “seen” their God at work in their history. By “transforming” I mean an inward turning-around: things/ideas/values that were not important to you now are; those that were of great significance now aren’t. Biblical …

How Can Tai Chi Offer the World a New Generation of Geniuses, and Change the World for Us All?

A few years ago I caught part of a major network news program on genius children and their’s and their parent’s experiences with public schools pressuring them to place these children on Ritalin. Some of the parents being interviewed had found alternative ways to deal with their children’s issues, that didn’t involve years of drug use, such as Ritalin. In this same program, a person from a national organization of American geniuses expressed concern that if Edison or Einstein were in public school today, that they may likely be diagnosed with ADHD, and drugged into “normalcy” so that they could “fit in.” In 1999, the Center for Pediatric Research, at a children’s hospital in Virginia found that 8 to 10% …

Heart

It is the heart that swells you up.It is again the heart that sinks you down. Feelings of elation or depression ,that of joys and sorrows spring out of it. If the heart upbeats at times , it sinks low on other occasions. You are impelled and elated by feelings for the welfare of the nation, for the love of mankind, but often you go down with feelings of hatred, jealousy and revenge. With positive feelings you are apt to rise high but negative emotions hurl you to the ground and you are buried with shame and disgrace.As the thoughts are in the heart ,so is the man . It is the feelings that grow up in the heart that …

Great Shift of Consciousness – The Passion

A great shift is in the making: A time for very deep purification and cleansing from the inner core within ourselves and within the Earth up to the outer manifest reality. How this will all play out is our choice. Many will understand the need for inner and outer focus on unity and love. However, many others will remain under the grip of their programmed old ways and thus experience this world with much fear while focusing on dis-unity. This is a time where our greatest force shall emerge from its hidden inner recesses as we face our greatest challenge: a transformation and trans-evolution of mankind when our thought processes transmute from a harsh concentration on lack toward a gentler …

Glimpses of Esoteric Christianity Part 6

Perfection “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” (Matt 5:48) The Nazarene Master uttered the above verse to the masses, who for centuries have overlooked the significance and importance of the mandate. Even the priesthood do not seem to stress this commandment, teaching instead the erroneous concept of the original sinful nature of man, and his redemption by an external saviour. Supposedly we were born in sin, live in sin, and die in sin; and that there is no way that we will be saved from eternal damnation in hell unless we develop a blind faith in the divinity and the sole sonship of God of a certain individual. This belief contradicts various …

Glimpses of Esoteric Christianity Part 5

The comprehension of Karma as revealed to the masses by Jesus is an improvement of the old interpretation and understanding of the principle of a previous dispensation of “an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth,” as given to the Israelites by Moses. To illustrate this, the law does not cause blindness as a punishment to an individual if he had blinded someone in the past. It does, however, make him aware, in some manner, of the wrongness of his actions–even if it does take blinding him if other means fail to make him realize his error. Should the individual realize his mistake, sincerely repents and compensate, then the lesson would have been learnt; he would be putting …

Glimpses of Esoteric Christianity Part 4

Reincarnation Everything in this universe is in motion. Movement produces change, or transformation. This is an eternal constant, a Law of the Cosmos, and it is immutable. The process of transformation occurs in stages, phases, and cycles. Every unit of life unfolds its consciousness in accord with the Law of Activity and Rest. The cycle of activity begins with birth, youth, maturity; it declines with old age and ends with so-called death, which is the period of Rest. The cycle continues repeatedly until the goal for that life-unit is achieved. Reincarnation is an expression of the Law of Activity and Rest as applied to human evolution. It is what Jewish mystics call “Gilgul,” and was a doctrine taught by the …
