12:29 pm - The practice of the ancient pagans - Wu Chan Zhong.
lordegrin


Mystics seek the transformation of consciousness by means of a special Meditation.

Before any of the existing religions appeared, people used to know techniques that allowed them to contact spirits and the Beyond for their personal development and to help their kinsfolk. Now, shamanism is considered to be some kind of progenitor religion.

Each nation used to have similar phenomenon in its culture. It was found in Europeans and civilizations of the East, throughout Asia and Africa, in Australoids, Amerinds and Cholos.

Now it seems to be difficult to trace the history of shamanism. But it obviously was the basis of various practices. It was the root of diverse religions.

More than 7000 years ago, long before Buddhism, Christianity and Taoism emerged, ancient folks lived in the territory of Zhong Yuan Valley in China. Different tribes populated the valley and each tribe had its shaman or group of masters practicing their own shamanist style. Slightly different from one another, yet they had much in common.

11:32 pm - need help

zanev
I admit first that I've not contributed much to the group, and for that I apologise. I seek help however, recently things have happened to me that have lead me to believe that I either 1) have a demon in me or 2) I've been cursed. Things leading me to believe this is: fatigue, not being able to remember things short or long term, "blanking out", hurting others/myself, and really odd dreams. I did see a real doctor and everything is fine with me so its not some illness, which is why I'm thinking it's somthing spirtual. If anyone can offer advice, or if anyone has questions that might lead to helping me, please respond.

4:34 am - Blues4Kali- A Cult Classic for the End Times

indiriverflow





What will Winter Solstice bring in
2012?

...an instant of Karma? ...an ethereal spiral dance of the collective soul? ... cosmic judgment leveled against civilization's expanse? ...destruction of the world as we know it? ...a chance for a new start? ...the rise and the revenge of the Goddess? or simply another day in the life of paranoia?
These are the false prophesies that your pastor warned you about!


Reality Exchange Program

"Makes DMT seem like a whip-it."



Crazy Bear said there'd be days like this. As usual, no one believed him. Now, all I want to know is: where IS that lifeboat, and how DO I ditch this ship of fools, without any of these bliss ninnies noticing that I'm already gone?


Captain, my ass. We are equal in this sea of madness.


That iceberg is looking awfully big.



New Age Metaphysical Books

Amana Mission is on a quest to save the world, and the only problem is, she can't remember why she got involved with such an obvious scam in the first place. Jesus saves. Christ. What a loser.


Kali kills first, and recycles later.


Hitchhikers, load up for a ride to the Other Side. You may wish you had gone Greyhound.


"What the...?"

*A cranky band of prankster peace warriors who absolutely cannot resist messing with each other's minds, no matter the cost.

*Cocky alchemy-dabbling quantum surfers, navigating the Ethersphere with hand-held computers, switching timelines to find a better party vibe and swap tips about the best temporary toilets for use as interdimensional portals.

*A burnt-out visionary hippie millionaire on a mission from Gaia to build a better "communitopia" by underwriting a convoy carrying telepathic priestesses.

*A wheelchair-bound mindpilot propelling a crystal-powered Seed Bank toward the post-Apocalyptic Garden, with psychic precision...and a predilection for high-velocity extreme driving.

*Hermaphrodite time-jumper fleeing a fate worse than death.

*Anarchist ghettoes where anything goes-except escape.

*Ancient Principals vying like sweatsoaked carpetbaggers for our loyalty as the Final Vote is tallied.

*Long-haired security patrols collecting a cannabis tribute tax from all pilgrims to the Valley of Fun.

*And an underground meat mafia bringing a black magic revival to a bloodless dreamworld gone bland.


All brought together by a secret psychedelic superdrug that tunes users in to reality through the eyes of another archetypal avatar inhabiting a different state of space and time. Mahayana made easy. Budding Buddha natures are running amuck on a virtual superhighway where all roads lead to the Bo tree and singularity.

Twenty-first century Tantra is about more than sex, drugs, and
rock and roll.Confronting the Karma of every wasted breath is only the first step.

Welcome to the End Times. Kali awaits. She already knows who you are.

Do you?


The 21st century counterculture is even weirder than it appears on the surface. This is not your mommy’s MTV Road Rules. Satire Parody and Humor.


Ride along on this mesmerizing, metaphor-packed bus trip toward ecstasy and enlightenment, as three real-time guides-Amana, Sissy, and Deva, let you in on what they learned when they asked what It was really all about, after all.

Become them for a multilevel metafictional tour of infinity and awaken yourself to the miracle-a-minute magic of mighty Mother Kali!

Sacred Sites Around the World

with Karen Tate
acclaimed author of:
Sacred Places of Goddess:
108 destinations

This visual experience and lecture explores the rich tapestry of Goddess worship from prehistoric cultures to modern academic theories.

1:53 am - Greetings

lukainima
Name:Lukainima (Sumerian for Priest and Mage)
Age: Thousands really (in this life not more than three dozen)
Location: Southern California
Religion: Eclectic Pagan (Panentheist)(Allah,An,Athena,Anubis,...)(Pantheist)(Deist)(Animist)...
Denomination/Sect: Sufi Thelemic Empyreal Olympian Sumerian ...
Conservative/Moderate/Liberal: There is no law beyond "Do what thou wilt"
Introductory Statement:
I have lived on this earth in this incarnation for three dozen years and still am amazed that evil can still reside within humans. Were they not either made of a Divine or by a Divine ... .
Then let loose on the world to dominate and conquer it /or take care of and nurture it.
Some prophets have come their way and for what? Nothing is better. Nothing is the same. Land. Oil. Women. Sex.
Has the west been more advanced than the arab mesopotamian world? Had they been so you know we would not be in this mess. How about the chinese history? Who knows how long that is. Is there a point to the killing? Are you better than your betters and who might they be? Are you leading the life that Divinity wants of you or are you just skipping by without being noticed and frozen in fear about doing anything about it? How come those of us individuals who have some degree of intelligence not light the way for others. There are more prophets than the Prophet Mohammed (peace and blessings be upon him) could count.

I was afraid for many years of being found out and this by the way is my first time talking aobut it in a public forum with most people I do not know. I was not like the others.
I was amazed to see that some people had already written my childhood story out and I did not know I was interviewed. I was alone in my thoughts. Hiding. I felt I did not belong where I was. I arrived to soon on this place. Sometimes I feel I arrived to late especially when I look at the news. I kept getting stuck in such anger towards people and how could they do that to themselves, to their women, children, land, HOW is it possible for them to completely diregard their conscience. Do they not know that we are all family. All of us are related. We are all made of the same Divine stuff. I believe there needs to be more action in favor of freedom from tyranny.

This is enough for now,
Lukainima
I, mySelf, Am
