talking about evil ... perpetuating human rituals that are perceived as evil fuels it's vitality and reach.
I've posted this graphic a few times ... have you seen it before?

The birth sequence is completely astrological. The star in the east is Sirius, the brightest star in the night sky, which, on December 24th, aligns with the 3 brightest stars in Orion’s Belt. These 3 bright stars are called today what they were called in ancient times: The Three Kings. The Three Kings and the brightest star, Sirius, all point to the place of the sunrise on December 25th. This is why the Three Kings “follow” the star in the east, in order to locate the sunrise — the birth of the sun.

The school was a Christian school, my neighborhood was very islamic, and there was also Jews nearby.
Christians saying Jesus was God, Muslims saying he was only a Prophet and the Jews saying he was neither...
I grew bored of this reoccurring circumstance, it seemed very trivial to me, like kids arguing over stickers.. it made it very easy for me to dismiss it at that point...
I figured they wouldn't know about any of these things had they not been told them or raised to identify themselves with them...Although i do enjoy watching them from my window, placing everything into understanding where the information is presented..
This is what paganism is to me, some kind of natural world where i feel automatically connected to everything, there is this inspiration, words become real in reference to reality, clarity shines through..like you wake up to yourself..
mannikin wrote:Those religions make it very easy to dismiss reality by defaulting to a scripture, rather than a sense of self, the scriptures define words which has no relation to reality, there are jews nearby, close proximity to me, my self where reality becomes a discussion between my essence/survival in relation to the environment, the scriptures certainly blinds them from seeing me in my nature, but they are told something that being a believer is becoming the book, human books are walking, pages are thinking, not thinking, but being thought of in imitation and projection, occupying the mind.
