Hypocrisy, Religious Fanaticism & Why We Must Learn The Ways of LOVE….

“We Must Learn The Ways of Love” — Law of One, Ra

 


What’s interesting to me is when a person with some sort of Celebrity status tweets or posts a topic to their fans/followers pertaining to the occult (hidden knowledge) — they are deemed cool and hip and their posts are re-tweeted and shared with the masses, but when a person you/they may know…. and purportedly love… shares something similar, they are labeled poor saps, ignorant, and deemed devil worshipers, backsliders in need of an intervention of sorts.

This type of thinking, in a word: Insane.

This is something I/We/You may never be able to fathom, or maybe We will….. because if we are honest and look back a bit into our past… we may find it was not that long ago when we have felt that very same way.

What’s that saying? Back then we did, but now we don’t…?? (shrugs)

The Eye of Horus (see above) is an ancient Egyptian symbol of protection and good health and is believed to have healing and protective power. It has often been used as a protective amulet. It was also used as a notation of measurement, particularly for measuring the ingredients in medicines and pigments. The symbol was divided into six parts, representing the shattering of Horus´ eye into six pieces. Each piece was associated with one of the six senses and a specific fraction.

What is your Truth? Is it something you have sought after throughout your life? Or has it been a constant companion? Please share with us below in the comments.

Wondering how and why I continue journaling about truth and love despite Google and other Search engines blacklisting my sites???

Because it keeps part of me alive; it keeps me in touch with what is real and true! Documenting my journey helps me heal…and will continue to do so as I move forward into tomorrow.

Peace and Blessings #Namaste #Love

(CBSNews.com) Katy Perry kicked off the American Music Awards Sunday with some serious star power, taking the Nokia Theatre stage in Los Angeles to perform her latest single, “Unconditionally.” Donning a traditional Japanese dress, the pop singer was joined by dancers for the live performance of the latest single off her “Prism” album.

Pitbull then got the fan-voted show under way, by making a joke about picturing the entire audience naked.

“It’s a miracle America that I’m here tonight,” he said before bringing a group of dancers onstage to show off popular dances through the years.

After Pitbull’s monologue, it was time to give out some actual awrds. Taylor Swift graced the stage to announce the first honor of the night: favorite pop/rock male, which went to Justin Timberlake. “These are voted on by the fans – everyone who took to their Twitter…and got busy, this means so much to me, thank you.”

Rihanna swooped up her seventh American Music Award: Favorite soul/R&B female artist. It marked the third time she’s won the AMA in that category. Taylor Swift, donning a short gold dress, received the favorite country album award for her hit album, “Red.” “Thank you, you are everything to me,” she said to fans. “I really appreciate this.”

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis accepted the favorite rap/hip-hop album award via satellite from Miami. Upon receiving the honor, they got serious, talking about racial profiling and citing the Trayvon Martin case.

One Direction scored the favorite pop/rock album for “Take Me Home,” the group’s second album. It was the first time the U.K. boy band was nominated.

Performances were plentiful, with the members of One Direction showing off their vocal chops with a stripped-down performance of “Story of My Life.” Imagine Dragons heated things up with a rendition of the hit “Radioactive.” The night’s host Pitbull and Ke$ha teamed up for a performance of “Timber.” Timberlake hit the stage with an acoustic guitar in hand, introducing his performance by saying, “We’re JT and the Tennessee Kids. This is a song about alcohol.” He then launched into his country-tinged “Drink You Away” song. Florida Georgia Line and Nelly brought some real country with their hit, “Cruise.”

People around the world, and through time, have come up with many a tale to explain the sun’s disappearance.

Viking sky wolves, Korean fire dogs, and African versions of celestial reconciliation—these are only some of the many ways people around the world, and through the ages, have sought to explain solar eclipses.\

People in equatorial Africa will be treated to a rare view of a total solar eclipse this Sunday, November 3. Those living on the eastern North American coast, northern South America, southern Europe, or the Middle East, will get to see a partial solar eclipse.

“If you do a worldwide survey of eclipse lore, the theme that constantly appears, with few exceptions, is it’s always a disruption of the established order,” said E. C. Krupp, director of theGriffith Observatory in Los Angeles, California. That’s true of both solar and lunar eclipses.

“People depend on the sun’s movement,” Krupp said. “[It's] regular, dependable, you can’t tamper with it. And then, all of a sudden, Shakespearean tragedy arrives and time is out of joint. The sun and moon do something that they shouldn’t be doing.”

What that disruption means depends on the culture, and not everyone views an eclipse as a bad thing, said Jarita Holbrook, a cultural astronomer at theUniversity of the Western Cape in Bellville, South Africa.

Some see it as a time of terror, while others look at a solar eclipse as part of the natural order that deserves respect, or as a time of reflection and reconciliation. (Related:“Pictures: Solar Eclipse Creates Ring of Fire.”)

Swallowing Fire

Many cultures explain eclipses, both solar and lunar, as a time when demons or animals consume the sun or the moon, said Krupp.

“The Vikings saw a pair of sky wolves chasing the sun or the moon,” said the Griffith Observatory astronomer. When one of the wolves caught either of the shining orbs, an eclipse would result. (Read “Vikings and Native Americans” in National Geographic magazine.)

“In Vietnam, a frog or a toad [eats] the moon or the sun,” Krupp added, while people of the Kwakiutl tribe on the western coast of Canada believe that the mouth of heaven consumes the sun or the moon during an eclipse.

In fact, the earliest word for eclipse in Chinese, shih, means “to eat,” he said.

Eclipse Wizard

In order to combat this devouring, people in many cultures made noise in order to scare the demon or animal away, said Nancy Maryboy, president of theIndigenous Education Institute on San Juan Island, Washington. She’s currently working with NASA on bringing indigenous astronomy into mainstream awareness.

People banged pots and pans or played on drums to get whatever was swallowing the sun or the moon to go away, she explained.

Krupp orchestrates a modern version of this during lunar eclipses on the front lawn of the Griffith Observatory. He dons a wizard’s outfit and leads the public on a march in front of the observatory while banging pots and pans to chase away whatever’s eating the moon.

“We’re always successful,” Krupp said.

Celestial Larceny

Other myths tell of deception and theft to explain the sun’s disappearance during an eclipse. Korean eclipse mythology involves fire dogs that try to steal the sun or the moon, said Krupp.

On orders from a king, the mythical canines try their best to capture the fiery sun or the ice-cold moon. They always fail, but whenever they bite either orb, an eclipse results.

One of the more colorful stories in Krupp’s opinion involves the Hindudemon Rahu, who disguises himself as a god in order to steal a taste of an elixir that grants immortality. The sun and moon see what Rahu is up to, and they report his crime to the godVishnu.

“Vishnu slices off his head before [the elixr] can slide past his throat,” said Krupp. As a consequence, Rahu’s head turns immortal, but his body dies.

The demon’s head continues to move through the sky, chasing the sun and the moon out of hatred. “Every now and then he catches them and swallows them,” explained Krupp. But since Rahu has no throat, the sun and the moon fall out of the bottom of his head.

Nature and Reconciliation

“My favorite myth is from the Batammaliba people inTogo and Benin“ in Africa, said Holbrook.

In this myth, the sun and the moon are fighting during an eclipse, she said. The people “encourage the sun and the moon to stop fighting.”

“They see it as a time of coming together and resolving old feuds and anger,” Holbrook said. “It’s a myth that has held to this day.”

A Navajo tradition regarding eclipses has also endured into the present day, notes Maryboy.

The Navajo regard the cosmic order of the universe as being all about balance, she said. “Something like an eclipse is just part of nature’s law. You pause to acknowledge that that time is special, [and] you reflect on the cosmic order.”

Maryboy explained that some Navajo still observe traditions associated with an eclipse by staying inside with their family, singing special songs, and refraining from eating, drinking, or sleeping.

You’re not supposed to look at an eclipse either, she added. “They say if you look at the sun during an eclipse, it will affect your eyes later.” A person who looks at the sun goes out of balance with the universe, leading to problems down the road. The same goes for eating and drinking during this time.

Modern Misunderstandings

As director of the Griffith Observatory, Krupp has heard his share of misunderstandings and fears regarding eclipses.

Perhaps one of the more persistent ones, according to Krupp, is that there is a danger to pregnant women and their unborn children during an eclipse.

“It seems irrational,” he said, but they can get dozens of calls asking about it.

Another misconception is that people can’t look at the sun when it’s completely covered during a total eclipse. Both Krupp and Holbrook mention that of course people shouldn’t look directly at the sun. Doing so can cause eye damage. But if the sun is completely covered, it’s ok to look at, said Holbrook. “That’s when you should be out there experiencing it,” she added. (Learn about how to view an eclipse.)

“It’s an amazing experience, even though you know it’s just the moon moving in front of the sun,” Holbrook said. “That’s why there are eclipse chasers.” (Related:“Chasing the Total Solar Eclipse.”)

Eclipses are certainly something Krupp experiences as often as he can. “I’ve gone after 13 total eclipses so far,” he said.

“They’re a chance to see the universe working,” Krupp explained. It’s “the solar system doing its thing right before your eyes, and it’s a deep and personal pleasure.”

BOSTON, MA - OCTOBER 23: Shane Victorino #18 of the Boston Red Sox takes the field for the start of Game One of the 2013 World Series against the St. Louis Cardinals at Fenway Park on October 23, 2013 in Boston, Massachusetts. (Photo by Elsa/Getty Images)

World Series 2013 lineups: Shane Victorino returns, moves down as Red Sox look to clinchShane Victorino is back in the lineup Wednesday night as the Red Sox look to clinch the 2013 World Series.

The Red Sox have Shane Victorino back in the lineup, but batting sixth rather than second as the Red Sox try to clinch the 2013 World Series in Game 6.

Boston Red Sox (3-2)

  1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
  2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
  3. David Ortiz, DH
  4. Mike Napoli, 1B
  5. Jonny Gomes, LF
  6. Shane Victorino, RF
  7. Xander Bogaerts, 3B
  8. Stephen Drew, SS
  9. David Ross, C

Starting Pitcher — John Lackey

St. Louis Cardinals (2-3)

  1. Matt Carpenter, 2B
  2. Carlos Beltran, RF
  3. Matt Holliday, LF
  4. Allen Craig, DH
  5. Yadier Molina, C
  6. Matt Adams, 1B
  7. David Freese, 3B
  8. Jon Jay, CF
  9. Daniel Descalso, SS

Starting Pitcher — Michael Wacha

This is not an optimized lineup.

It’s not an optimized lineup because Jonny Gomes is hitting fifth. It’s not an optimized lineup because Stephen Drew is batting anywhere but ninth and, frankly, at this point it seems foolish to hope he’s going to start hitting like his old self anytime before 2014. It’s not optimized because Xander is so low.

Red Sox fans should care. But frankly we probably shouldn’t care all that much. Not yet. This Red Sox team has been dealing with that for weeks now. Hell, they dealt with a lot worse over the last three games thanks to National League rules depriving them of Mike Napoli.

Granted, this is also one of the harder challenges they’ve faced, but…they did enough last time. It’s easy to forget, given that Game 2 ended with St. Louis two runs up, but two runs from Boston’s offense against Wacha was enough right up until Craig Breslow made a mess of things in the seventh. Bridging the gap between Lackey and Koji is still a problem, but getting to that point, at least, is not so impossible a hurdle as it might seem.

The Jonas Brothers call it quits, for now

Follow us: @eotmonline on Twitter | EOTM.Media on Facebook

Its over for now.

The Jonas Brothers have officially called it quits, the famous boy group is axed.

Weeks after canceling their 19-city tour the trio confirmed to People magazine that they have “unanimously” agreed to call it quits.

“It’s over for now,” Kevin Jonas, 25, told People magazine.

“There is a deep rift within the band,” Jesse Derris, a representative for the Jonas Brothers, told the mag. “There was a big a disagreement over their music direction.”

Initial reports suggested the brothers were fighting, and that Joe Jonas, 24, had an issue with substance abuse — but both claims appear to be false. Instead, the brothers are on good terms, and are working on solo projects.
