Yahweh Returns

secretsoftheserpent

A large group of people were having a party at a large stadium.  It was before a championship soccer match, so they were all having a great time mingling among themselves.  Out of nowhere a man appears with a bellowing voice.  “Excuse me! Excuse me!”,  he says.  Everyone stops and looks at the man.  The place gets really quiet and the man begins to speak.  He says, “I am Yahweh.  You know me as God.  I just thought I would come back to Earth and see how things are going”.  Immediately without hesitation some people crowded around him and start bowing to him.  Yahweh notices that not everyone is bowing down to him so he gets angry and screams, “Bow down to me! All of you!”  So even more run over to him and start bowing down.

Are You Strong Enough for the Goddess?

secretsoftheserpent

This week I have had several people come to me asking questions about religion.   They heard that I was the ‘expert’ on the subject and wanted to talk to me.  I asked, “What do you want to know?”  To which they replied, “Everything!”   What they don’t understand and what a lot of readers that come across this site don’t under stand is, ‘You must make sure you are ready!’

Druidry for the 21st Century: Druidry in the Anthropocene

The Druid's Garden

Druidry is rooted in relationship and connection with the living earth: the physical landscape and all her plants and creatures, the spirits of nature, the allies of hoof and claw, fin and feather. The land and her spirits are our primary allies and energies with which we work as druids. The question I keep coming back to is this: how do I practice a nature-centered path in a time when nature–those of the hooves, fins, feathers, and claws–are going extinct and dying all around me? How do I practice druidry when everything that I hold sacred and love  is under severe threat, and when it is likely that in my lifetime, I will witness severe ecological collapse in multiple ecosystems.  How do I practice druidry with my “eyes open” to all of this, and honor nature in this great extinction event, and still say sane? How do I do this…

Tricksters

secretsoftheserpent

Tricksters  usually have a great degree of intellect and knowledge.  They use their wisdom to play tricks on people and other gods.  They usually disobey rules and most conventional thinking or behavior.  In stories the Tricksters can be a woman, man, god, spirit, goddess or any other type of entity.  What were the ancients trying to tell us with Tricksters?  What do they symbolize?

Mithras

secretsoftheserpent

Many people do not know that there are a few versions of Mithras.  There was Roman, Zoroastrian, Greek, Iranian, Hindu, Persian and Sabean versions of Mithras.  They were all blended together and composed to local ways to become the one that Rome eventually adopted.  Of course Rome added and deleted things to make Mithras their version.  The Mithras cult is very old indeed.  In most to the Mithras reliefs he is slaying a bull.  Most researchers have no idea why he is slaying a bull.  It all has to do with the sun in the age of Taurus.  Slaying the bull meant the sun was about to exit Taurus, so Mithras had slayed the bull.

Lemuria

secretsoftheserpent

When I tell people there was another ancient civilization named Lemuria people usually respond that they never heard of it.  They are even more surprised when I tell them that it sunk below the ocean just like Atlantis.  Lemuria was also known as Mu.  The names mean land of our ancestors, but it is also known in several texts as land of the dragons or serpents, mother land of humanity and cradle of civilization.  Lemuria was another content that was in the Pacific Ocean.

Atlantis

secretsoftheserpent

Atlantis is a myth that most know about.  When people find out that I am an ancient historian one of the first questions they ask me is, “Do you know anything about Atlantis?”  It does not matter of the race, culture or background of that person, they want to know about Atlantis.  What is it about Atlantis that is imbedded in our memory?  I have to be careful about what I tell people because, just like religion, most of what they know is complete wrong.  When one is not ready to hear the truth, they lash out at the messenger.

Styx

secretsoftheserpent

The River Styx gets its name from the Goddess Styx.  She was the Goddess of this river.  In the Greek myths it is said that she sided with Zeus during the Titan War.  Is this river in Greek mythology real?  Many rivers have been named after it, but what is it or where is it?  Herodotus says Styx originated near Feneos.  Herodotus has been accused of making up stories for entertainment, but he maintained he was only reporting what he was told.  One must understand that these myths and texts were written for the initiated.  For those who are not initiated, it is just a wild fanciful story.

Hourglass

secretsoftheserpent

The function of an Hourglass is to mark the passing of time as sand trickles through the narrow waist in the middle of the transparent glass container.  It is a very old Freemasonry symbol.  Many think the Egyptians use a clepsydra or water-clock and it was the predecessor of the hourglass.  I got news for them.  If it’s a Freemason and Alchemical symbol, it was used in ancient Egypt.  After all we get Hour from the name Horus.

Celtic Cross

secretsoftheserpent

The Celtic Cross is a cross contained within a circle.  Very early versions of this cross, found in Ireland and Scotland, do not show the arms protruding beyond the inside of the circle.  The cross is encompassed inside the circle.  In this manner it becomes the world-wide symbol of the Sun Cross.  Christians stole it and made it the Latin Cross.  In its true form, this symbol is world-wide among the ancients.  What were they trying to tell us?
