God Admits Stealing Idea For Messiah From Zoroastrianism (theonion.com)

GodAlmighty

THE HEAVENS—Under pressure from scholars, who for centuries have pointed out strong similarities between certain aspects of the two religions, God finally admitted Tuesday that He had stolen the idea for the Messiah from Zoroastrianism and used it as a major feature of the Judeo-Christian tradition. “Look, maybe they came up with the thing about the Messiah being conceived by virgin birth, but c’mon—that’s just one minor detail. I added plenty of new stuff in there,” said God Almighty, Our Lord and Heavenly Father, adding that the concept of Saoshyant, the savior of Zoroastrianism, was “barely fleshed out” and that He had “really put [His] own spin on it and humanized [His] Messiah” by having Jesus Christ physically walk the earth and interact with other people. “I mean, how many ideas are truly original when you think about it? And anyway, I made my guy a carpenter—gave him a nice real-world job. That’s so much more relatable than their mysterious, magical man who lives for decades without eating anything. Okay, okay, I may have also taken the part about him raising the dead and being the judge of all humankind, too, but that’s it. The rest is all me.” God attempted to silence further criticism by announcing that there were some “big surprises” in store for the upcoming Apocalypse, assuring reporters it would be “totally different” than Frashokereti, the Zoroastrian description of the final battle between good and evil.

“The Melchizedek Creed” from Thane’s Find Yourself and Live Lesson #19 – “This is the Day”

“Thou great Eternal, Thou great unbounded whole,
Thy body is the Universe, thy Spirit is its soul; If
thou dost fill immensity, if thou art All-in-All,
Then I’m in Thee and Thou in me, or I’m not here at all.
How can I be outside of Thee, when Thou fillest earth and air?
There surely is no place for me, outside of everywhere,
If Thou art all– if Thou dost fill immensity of space,
Then I’m in Thee and Thou in me, or else I have no place.
And, if l have no place at all, what am I doing here?
Beyond the All, I cannot be, outside of everywhere;
Then, truly in Thyself am I, and Thou must be in me,
or else there is no All-in-All, no Thee, no me, to be.
But, now, I claim thy Spirit free, thy perfect life and Soul,
The very thought of this great truth makes me this moment whole;
This very hour look I deep, and vision high to see,
That Christ within — the perfect Self – art Thou! and I am Thee!”

Book recommendation: “Without the Smell of Fire” by Walter Lanyon

WithoutTheSmellofFire

In his Dedication to this book, Walter Lanyon writes: ” I have called this ‘Without the Smell of Fire’ because I have been so impressed that the time has come for the vast army of Truth Students to advance to that State of expression where the ‘smell of Fire’ of the trials and problems through which they have gone, be gotten rid of.

It is time we laid aside the cocoon of human thought from which we came. The smell of fire of the trials from which we came is absorbed in the glorious Light of Spirit.” (amazon.com)

Book recommendation: “The Christ Within: A Study of the Absolute” by Lillian DeWaters

TheChristWithin

Christian Science axiom dictates that it is faith in God that will heal all physical and mental ills. In The Christ Within, first published in 1925, Lillian De Waters provides a poetic and persuasive argument for the thesis that the power to heal oneself lies within the individual and is a matter sometimes of mental effort and sometimes of spiritual effort. And while “health” generally connotes physical soundness, De Waters addresses a more holistic view, arguing that the way to peace of mind, body, and soul lies through the glorious embrace of Christ. American spiritual thinker LILLIAN DE WATERS (b. 1883) was one of the first students of Christian Science, eventually breaking off on her own to stress the inseparability of Jesus Christ and the primary divine force, thereby falling between Christian Science and Orthodox Christianity. She is also the author of The Hidden Truth and The Great Answer (the Message of Ontology). (Google Books)

Report: Nobody Fucking Cares (theonion.com)

NEW YORK—According to a brief but conclusive report released Monday, nobody fucking cares. “Doesn’t fucking matter,” read the report in part, which went on to inform readers that no one gives two shits, so fuck it. “Seriously. Stop wasting everyone’s goddamn time.” The report further urged those who still hadn’t shut up about it to quit acting like fucking idiots and just give it a rest, for Christ’s sake.

Open call to artists (from Gwyllm Llwydd)

diplomacy

Working Title: “Diplomacy” Gwyllm – 2016

With the beginning of the The Iraq Invasion, the whole anti-war movement collapsed. Since then, the West has become enmeshed
with an unwinnable “Forever War”… at great cost to civilian populations across the world.

As there is no draft, so there is no need to resist it seems. After all, take away all economic opportunities from the working class, but leave the option of education, health care etc. through the military, and shabam! You have all the cannon fodder available. If we think this wasn’t by design, and social engineering, then I feel we are fully immersed in illusion.

I have not been comfortable with the implied complicity of all involved, and especially those who know better. Yes, there is resistance, but we can no longer count on the media, and especially the corporate media to get the story out.

I am calling on artists to illustrate and to start a movement of resistance that might just catch on. The juggernaut of empire and the attending lawlessness has to end somewhere, and let it at least begin with me.
