Converging Paths


It has been played out and now as one who shall speak truth, the converging paths are seeing the truths evident in the fabric of their religion and finding it is not so different from their neighbors, it is the dogmatic fundamentalist within each that calls it blasphemy to unite truth.

“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”

~ Robert Frost (1874-1963)

That road is the one that sees a law of one, that is running parallel to the manipulated dogma of duality, the separateness of all but the fact remains we are all searching for the same things:

The Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw once said, “There is only one religion, though there are a hundred versions of it.” In our pluralistic society an increasing number of people find Shaw´s interpretation of religion appealing. Is it possible that Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, etc. represent differing, yet valid, paths to the same destination? Were this the case, there would be no need to argue about which religion is the “true” religion. Such disputes would be pointless. Perhaps viewing religion in this way would eventually lead to less religious bigotry and greater cooperation among people of differing faiths.

Everything is backward


Quote

“Just look at us. Everything is backwards; everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, universities destroy knowledge, governments destroy freedom, the major media destroy information and religions destroy spirituality.”
— Michael Ellner-
Governments destroy the governed,
banks destroy the money,
 and we destroy ourselves….
Naught may endure but mutability.
-Percy Shelly-I like the construction, not the deconstruction.
Oh well, all things have their time in the sun.we gotta turn this baby around.
Backwards tells a tale of discovery.

“And the white knight is talking backwards and the red queen has lost her head, remember what the door mouse said, feed your head.”

-Jefferson Airplane-

Backmasking (not to be confused with backward masking) is a recording technique in which a sound or message is recorded backward on to a track that is meant to be played forward. Backmasking is a deliberate process, whereas a message found through phonetic reversal may be unintentional.

Backmasking was popularised by The Beatles who used backward instrumentation on their 1966 album Revolver.[1] Artists have since used backmasking for artistic, comedic and satiric effect, on both analogue and digital recordings. The technique has also been used to censor words or phrases for “clean” releases of rap songs.

Backmasking has been a controversial topic in the United States since the 1980s, when allegations from Christian groups of its use for Satanic purposes were made against prominent rock musicians, leading to record-burning protests and proposed anti-backmasking legislation by state and federal governments.[2]

Have we reached the point where the expanding universe turns inward?


As the wave is looking within perhaps the wave is being matched in the macro.

It all had to do with time. “Time can be overcome,” Micrea Eliade wrote. That´s what it´s all about. The great mystery of Eleusis, of the Orphics, of the early christians, of Sarapis, of the Greco-Roman mystery religions, of Hermes Trismegistos, of the Renaissance Hermetic alchemists, of the Rose Cross Brotherhood, of Apollonius of Tyana, of Simon Magus, of Asklepios, of Paracelsus, of Bruno, consists of the abolition of time. The techniques are there. Dante discusses them in the _Comedy_. It has to do with the loss of amnesia; when forgetfulness is lost, true memory spreads out backward and forward, into the past and into the future, and also, oddly, into alternate universes; it is orthogonal as well as linear.

Was Atlas Shrugged a real message??



I read the book many years ago and will say it had a significant impact upon me.  At the time I had no idea this book had the second most impact upon the United States second only to the bible.Then I saw her as a hero.  Today still I see an interesting polarizing figure.  Her story seems almost prophetic.

Consider how they crippled the economy. How the underground bases have been established. How it is all in place for them to just dissapear. Ayn Rand we know was connected. Perhaps we are nearing the time  many shall just be gone.

hmmmmmmm
