History

secretsoftheserpent

What is history? It is said to be the records of things that happened. Problem is that history is not as accurate as we would like it to be. We didn’t have an adequate way of keeping records in ancient history. So the first problem we have with history is the material it was written down on. The second problem is the people who recorded history. All ancient history was recorded from either religion or royalty. In these records they always keep themselves in a good light. When a dynasty fell or was over thrown those records were destroyed. When new religions were started the records of the old religions were destroyed. When history is written by privileged or prejudice groups it is never accurate. All of our history is from biased accounts.

Hermetically Sealed

secretsoftheserpent

Thoth, who is Hermes, is the one who gave us the Hermetics.  Check out my post Hermetic Philosophy to understand it.  Thoth was a master architect and is said to have written most if not all the ancient books in Egypt.   We use the term hermetically sealed today without really understanding what it means.  We think its is to just close something and seal it shut.  As you will see its much more.

Rites of the Goddess

secretsoftheserpent

The Sacred Feminine is the mysteries. She is the Great Mother. The mother of the mysteries. Her secrets have been guarded generation after generation. There have been initiations and tests to prove one is worthy to hear her secrets. Humans are born from their mother and leave for a short period of time. In this short period of time, which is this life, one of the things we can hope for is that by some wonderful reality while we are still alive we can die and be born again. When you are born again you are born from the womb of the mysteries of the Sacred Feminine. The Sacred Feminine is forever bearing her children yet forever a virgin.

Cultivating Resilience as a Physical and Spiritual Practice

The Druid's Garden


A lovely stand of staghorn sumac in bloom! Staghorn Sumac: A tree that teaches us about resilience

Resilience is a term I first learned as a permaculture practitioner–resilient ecosystems are those that are able to withstand hardship, recover quickly when faced with difficulty, and had a capacity to endure. In other words, a resilient ecosystem can withstand drought, flooding, or other difficulties by being adaptable, flexible, and having redundancies. Which of course, is so critical in today’s ever-changing world fraught with climate change and instability.  Resilient plants are the often-maligned weeds: those weeds who take every opportunity to grow: who find a crack in the sidewalk and take root, who immediately start to grow after disruption, or who outcompete less resilient plants. They are able to be like weeds or opportunistic species, taking advantage of new opportunities, finding niches, and gracefully adapting to change. Think of the dandelion here, growing up through cracks in the sidewalk.  This same…

Our Minds Limit Science

secretsoftheserpent

Our ego mind is what limits us. We are our own worst enemies. We can’t be wrong. We have to have others think like us. The ego will get itself into trouble constantly. Science is not immune to the ego. In fact science is being run by one of the biggest ego trips ever in history. Until we get science and the human race out of the ego, we will not advance.

Hermetic Philosophy

secretsoftheserpent

The Hermetics come straight out of ancient Egypt and ancient Greece. It’s suppose to have been taught by Thoth himself. I have recommended the book The Kybalion by the Three Initiates, but I thought I would explain the Hermetic Principals in a way everyone could understand. To help you understand Hermetics think of the All as the Force in Star Wars.

Greek Myths

secretsoftheserpent

Mythology is the history of ancient times and it is ancient thought. Myths have a lot of archetypes, but they are based on true experiences. The ancient tales are experiences of ancient history. Some are mental concepts, some are real life experiences, but you must be initiated into wisdom to understand them. I love the myths because it lets me into the minds of the ancient writers.

Embracing the Wilds at Lughnasadh

The Druid's Garden

Wildlife Wildlife

When you think of the term “wild”, what comes to mind? Perhaps wild can be defined by that which is its opposite: civilized, tame, domesticated, and controlled.  Wild, on the other hand, is free, unrestricted, unbounded, and sovereign.  And while I resist binaries, there does seem to be some truth in the difference between that which is wild and that which is tame–a manicured city street vs. an old-growth forest has a world of difference: in the smell, in the biodiversity present, and in the energy of the space.  A wild place is hugely biodiverse and serves the needs of a wide variety of species. A wild space is in a place of ecological balance, where all resources are cycled and used. The human-tamed spaces are most frequently designed for human needs exclusively, and in the modern age, are also prime producers of pollution and waste. There’s, of course…

Wisdom from the Ancients

secretsoftheserpent

The ancients had some of the highest intellectual quality the world has ever seen. The ancient Egyptian, ancient Greece, Mayan, Lemurian, Atlantean and others were some of the most advanced civilizations that ever existed.  The ancients gave us a foundation for all of western world.  Including education, social and political development.  The ancients wanted people to study mathematics, astronomy and music.  These three subjects were considered the tripod of wisdom.  The ancients thought these subjects must be known.

Social Conditioning

secretsoftheserpent

In this post Im going to show you a few things that conditions you.  In the secret society upper echelons they talk about the sleeping masses.  It is where the term ‘wake up’ comes from.  Someone thinks they have it all figured out and they are woke.  Are you woke or did you just move over into another sleeping position?  Everything in this world is to distract you from your potential!  In the last year or so people think the world has gone crazy.  Im going to let you in on a little secret.  The world has always been crazy!  It just took what happened for most others to see it.  Unless we raise our consciousness we will stay crazy.  Seeing what controls you is the only place to start.
