Last time I blogged about knitting my own alter cloth. It took me a while to finally find a simple pattern that I may only have to watch a youtube video on one particular stitch. The next step on this journey is to get the yarns I will use for it. This pattern can also be customized to make other things like dish cloths, placemats and even blankets. This could work out well.
I know that we are an earth based and earth conscious people, so if I use wool from…Continue

The Ancient Egyptians believe the human soul has five divisions or components. They named them Ren, Ka, Ib, Ba, and Sheut.
Ren is literally your name. It lives as long as you are remembered, or read about by others, or prayed to as an ancestor.
Ka is the vital essence that makes the difference between the living and the dead. It animates your body keeping your corporeal existence intact.
Ib is literally the heart. It is formed from a single drop of blood from your…Continue
The story of Mayavati and Pradyumna begins when Kama shoots his arrow of love at Shiva in order to make him love Parvati. Shiva had withdrawn into samadhi (a deep meditative trance) after the death of his first wife Sati, but it was necessary that he marry again in order to have a son who would one day save the world from the demon Tarakasura. Shiva was so angry at this attempt to subvert his mind and virtue that he burnt Kama with the fire of his ajna chakra…Continue

Just what kind of a world DO we want? I think most of us really do have an answer to that. The bigger question is how do we achieve it.
New Age people would tell you that the world IS changing - the paradym is shifting away from violence fear and selfishness and toward caring and something that is more on the Soul level. But, like all upheavals - changes for the better are met with resistance from the other perspective; thus the increase in violence and chaos…Continue

A letter from *Mom* and *Dad*
Subject: A letter from *Mom* and *Dad*
To: Our Children of Earth
Re: Idiotic Religious Rivalries
Dear Children (and believe us, that's all of you),
We consider ourselves pretty patient folks. For instance, look at the Grand Canyon. It took millions of years to get it right. And about evolution? Boy, nothing is slower than designing that whole Darwinian thing to take place, cell by cell, and gene by…Continue
This is a collage for Al'lat, the principal goddess of the Kaaba before Muhammad (see my blog post "Kybele, the Kaaba, and Al'lat). This art piece contains two carvings of Al'lat, date clusters, and a watery oasis set against the background of the Tree of Life on the flag of Chuvashia. One may speculate that the black stone (a meteorite) in a setting of silver in the side of the Kaaba is what remains of the goddess worship of Arabia.…Continue
Kybele and Kaaba are cognate words---that is, words that share the same root. But what is Kybele? Kybele is the correct Greek pronunciation for the name that is usually spelled Cybele and pronounced with an “s” sound. Kybebe is another form of the name. The root syllable means “cube”. It is easy to see why the Kaaba is called a cube. Perhaps the goddess Kybele had a cube-shaped temple on Mt. Ida in Phrygia (Turkey), where a black meteorite that was supposed to…Continue
Years ago, a regular client of mine asked for help on behalf of his employee. The employee's house was terribly haunted and his wife had just had a baby. The couple wanted to have their place blessed so it would be a much safer haven for raising their future children.
So while I agreed to help, the moment I walked into their home, the hair on my arms stood up. I had the creepie-crawlies tingling up and down from my scalp to my toes. It was a physical reaction I had never…
The Dark Queen comes in the night to your place of rest. She has her maidens that prepare her way. Once the air is sufficiently fixed, she overwhelms her subject with deep desire.
Who is this Dark Queen that touches our heart? Is she some thoughtform we create ourselves? Maybe her roots run deep into the past. Ancient cultures have recognized her abilities and respected her ways. Is it Nyx, Lilith, Hekate, Kali, Inanna, Tlazolteotl, or some other name? Whatever you wish to call her,…Continue
In another in a series on the ancient life of Babaji, the Mahavatar known to students of the Self-Realization Fellowship, I would like to clarify the meaning of an often-told myth about the creator god Brahma. At first he had five heads, four of which faced outward at the points of the compass; the fifth was in the center and probably functioned as a symbol of transcendence. When Brahma looked at his daughter with lust Shiva punished him by cutting off the…Continue

A frequently told myth about Kama Deva, the Hindu god of love, tells us that he is “Ananga”---limbless---because he shot his arrow of love at Shiva, who had withdrawn into an unceasing meditation after losing his first wife Sita. Ostensibly Kama had acted on behalf of all the gods, who wanted Shiva to marry Parvati in order that he might have a son who would one day save the world. Reacting angrily, Shiva destroyed Kama with a stream of fire from his third eye.…Continue

It is a time of heat or of cold, of eternal summer or winter. It is a time of life or death. Vishnu is breathing life into existente: "Maha-Vishnu breathes out, and the universes come into being for trillions of years. He breathes in and absorbs all the universes and their inhabitants back into His body until His next exhalation in the cycling of creation." http://btg.krishna.com/time-and-again
