As we all know, there are many types of addiction. Not posting as an authority on the subject or as a professional. Simply as a person who's been seen that way at times.
Many of you know that I am disabled. Degenerative disc disease which means it hits the lower back first and slowly takes all the…Continue
Mother.....she takes, she gives, she multiplies as does the universe. For she is such. She is our world and more. She will either decide or dictate what is best for us all, fight until the last breath or readily hand us over to the wolves to see whether we will perish or return leading the pack. The Mother........so well known, but so inexperienced each lifetime over. A nurturing being, and a vicious species. She is all, but in the end she is nothing. As long as the young live on, her snarl…Continue

Mesopotamia (Greek) = between the two rivers (Tigris and Euphrates Rivers)
Mesopotamia is one of the oldest sites that mark the beginning of writing as well as evidence of the beginnings of complex societies.
Women in Mesopotamia
Women had many rights, they could own land own their own business, and make their own…Continue

Some guy in the fake gunfights shot someone with real bullets, and a bystander. Here's what you really need to know:
First, blanks used are black powder, not what is used in real bullets. They give off a lot of black smoke to make it look more real.
Second, That powder is thicker grained and if shot right at someone, causes permanent skin damage. That black powder embeds itself in your skin and you can never get it out.
Third, every gunfighter in Tombstone goes…Continue

Very short post.
If you find mostly trolls on a chat room, come in an hour or two later.
If that doesn't work, try coming in late at night. Trolls usually are too fried to stay up too late.
And ALWAYS tell them to go to hell, then ignore them after. Its the only way to get rid of them.
Simple. Too few people blog here. I want you to get to know me. My name is Luke. I am a student of religion and atheism both. I have degrees in sociology and Psychology along with a healthy dose of Lying. I have no degrees other than the one for basic HTML.
I love the way people interact and communicate. I have a higher IQ than the trolls on chat. I love to give them a hard time.
I am starting to use my name on titles just to differentiate myself from other posters. That way,…Continue

Inspired Ghost Tracking are Paranormal Trackers local to me. They did a program at the library. I guess people saw the word"ghost" and thought it was a kids Halloween program because it was mostly kids. Since the lecture was about a local murder suicide this made the trackers uncomfortable.
A really short post about using candles, crystals and other forms of magical focus.
They are useful. Any learning path starts and unfortunately ends with believing in physical things to either focus, harness or contain magical ideas. The truth is that none of those exist except in the minds of the people that follow those paths.
The truth is that all the energy comes from you. No magic has any start without you. Your will.
People need objects to learn to focus…Continue

All through time people have used candles in ceremonies, rituals,
spells, worship, or to simply light a darkened cave or room. Today all
people from all walks of life use candles. Look at the altar of any
Christian church and you will find candles on and around the altar.
The use of candles in a Christian church originates from Pagan
ceremonies, rituals or spells. Many people will burn a candle because
it is soothing. Below is a table of correspondences for candles…

I have come to know of Lovecraft's work about 5 years now and have read many of His books and listened to the many audio- books handed over to the public domain.
It goes without saying that He was a little bit of an oddball. However He was a very good writer , and was living within His astral nature and of the creative imagination.
As an occultist myself I…

Secrets and LIES! This week, let's take a look at Pagan Ethics. I promise, we'll HARM NONE!.
A good place to start is to examine just what do we mean by Ethics in the first place. When did we start thinking about Ethics? What does it mean for us personally, or as a society, or, really, what does it mean for us a satient beings? Is the consideration Ethics soley a condition of being human?
Here is to you all having a good one again today. Now I have to convience myself to start my own. Easier said then done for some reason. Until our paths cross again. Blessings.

I am deciding to start up a new series on ancient civilizations, so not only is it something you can learn-but also if you have kids they can learn too. The information that I will provide will be at an easy sort of level, (so it won't be written like a novel). Also I have posted this on my Pagans for Archaeology page but I decided that it was better as a blog post. The following information that I have provided is really basic and tends to be around after…Continue

Well here we are to Monday once again. Joy of joys. Now the question is where did that weekend go? And why didn't I do anything constructive with it? No point to fussing about any of it though. With that then let me offer up the good vibes and wish you well for the start of another work week. Until our paths cross again. Blessings.
