When Religion Becomes an Excuse to Discriminate

This week the Movement Advancement Project launched an ad campaign with a video that shows a widow being denied a funeral service for her deceased wife. I wish this were a purely hypothetical example of the dangers of so-called religious exemption laws and policies, but it was all too real for Jack Zawadski.
Jack and his late husband, Bob, were partners for over half a century. As Bob’s health deteriorated, Jack’s nephew prearranged funeral services to minimize the stress on Jack. But when the hour of Jack’s heart-wrenching loss arrived, the funeral home refused to take Bob’s body. Upon learning that Bob and Jack were married, objecting funeral home staff told Bob’s nursing home that it went against her beliefs as a Christian.
In another example of devastating discrimination, a faith-based child welfare agency denied a lesbian couple in Texas the opportunity to foster a refugee child, potentially depriving a child of a loving home. Fatma Marouf and Bryn Esplin are an interfaith couple who both teach at Texas A&M University, where Fatma serves as director of the university’s immigration rights clinic. A federally funded refugee program affiliated with the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops invited Fatma to visit and learn about the program’s work with unaccompanied refugee children. Seeing these children in urgent need led the couple to decide to foster one themselves. But early in the application process, to their shock and dismay, they were told they were ineligible because their family structure does not “mirror the Holy Family.”
Some might think Fatma and Bryn’s experience was a fluke. But the sad reality is that anti-LGBT discrimination happens all the time.
Despite marriage equality and other advances in LGBT civil rights, calls for help to Lambda Legal show this discrimination remains widespread. Lambda Legal and Family Equality Council recently reviewed more than 1,000 reports of mistreatment in public accommodations alone, and the results are troubling.
LGBT people in southern states and northern ones, in big cities and small towns, shared stories of humiliation, trauma, and abuse. They described refusals of service in bakeries and hotel lobbies, in doctors’ offices and public transportation. Sometimes the refusals caused disruption and increased costs; sometimes they happened in critical moments when no other options were available.
Often the rejection happened without warning — in an ordinary instant of an average day — blindsiding its targets, who were at a post office, an accountant’s office, or a barber shop. For others, vicious harassment forced them to seek help from law enforcement or to seek new housing. No matter who the target is and no matter the specifics of the refusal, the emotional impact is real and often searing: LGBT people learn to live defensively, always on guard against another humiliating, ostracizing incident.
After experiencing such discrimination, most people who have been targeted will suffer both immediate and lasting harms. As Jack was mourning the loss of his beloved partner of many decades, as Fatma and Bryn were planning their future family together, they were abruptly and completely rejected as equals by people operating a business or social services agency.
As a society, we have learned repeatedly that no one should be turned away from public services just because of who they are. And we have learned that public rejections — from humiliating harassment to outright service denials — inflict lasting damage both to those treated as “less than” and to our fractured society.
It’s bad enough that anti-LGBT discrimination still happens all the time. But with the push for religious exemption laws, policies, and court cases, it threatens to get worse. As Jack’s, Bryn’s, and Fatma’s stories illustrate, our cherished right of religious liberty is being turned into a tool for discrimination. Opponents of equality for LGBT people, women, and vulnerable others are seeking to exempt themselves from rules intended to ensure safety and fairness for everyone. We have seen too much of this before.
Some defenders of religious exemptions point to the Masterpiece Cakeshop case currently before the Supreme Court, arguing that no real harm is being done because it’s “just a cake.” But the commercial bakery that casts itself as a victim because it’s expected to serve all customers equally shows the anti-LGBT prejudice still poisoning our society. Whether cake or lodging or medical care, making any targeted group into pariahs is traumatizing, and deadly serious business.
Opponents of LGBT equality have been preparing for years to deploy religion claims to thwart our progress toward full equality. But in the past year, they have found a powerful new accomplice in the Trump administration. Last month, with the creation of the new Conscience and Religious Freedom unit in the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Civil Rights, the federal government switched focus from protecting patients to prioritizing the “religious or moral” objections of health care workers over medical standards and patients’ needs. We’ve entered an alarming era that’s not just topsy-turvy but dangerous.
The thousands of reports of refusals and harm that LGBT people already have shared with us are real and urgent warnings that we must not allow this to become a new normal.

Angelina Jolie says respect for human rights key to Syria peace

By Charlie Dunmore and Olga Sarrado  |  28 January 2018   |  Français   |  عربي

On visit to Jordan’s Za’atari refugee camp, UNHCR Special Envoy urges international community to find “principled end to this senseless war.”

ZA’ATARI REFUGEE CAMP, Jordan – UNHCR Special Envoy Angelina Jolie said on Sunday that any negotiated solution to Syria’s long-running conflict must respect the human rights and dignity of all Syrians, including millions of refugees living in neighbouring countries.

Almost seven years since the start of the conflict, more than 6 million people remain displaced inside Syria and a further 5.48 million have fled to other countries in the region, creating the biggest refugee crisis since the end of the second world war.
On her fifth visit to Jordan since the beginning of the crisis, Ms. Jolie visited refugee families living in Za’atari camp, the largest refugee settlement in the Middle East and home to more than 80,000 Syrians.
“We should never forget that the war began with demands by Syrians for greater human rights,” she told a news conference at the camp. “Peace in their country has to be built on that.”
“It cannot be built on impunity for the targeting of civilians by all sides of the conflict, the bombing of schools and hospitals, barrel bombs, torture, chemical weapons and rape used as a weapon of war,” she added.
“Please provide the leadership and strength needed to negotiate a principled end to this senseless war.”
“So that is my message to the international community today: yes, of course, please do more to help meet the needs of desperate Syrian families and the countries hosting them. But above all please provide the leadership and strength needed to negotiate a principled end to this senseless war – without sacrificing the dignity and human rights of Syrian families. That is non-negotiable.”
Earlier, the Special Envoy met father-of-six Abu Suhaib, 40, who fled to Jordan from southern Syria’s Dara’a province in 2013. He told her the bloodshed and chaos back home had left him feeling helpless in exile, and said all he wanted was for his family to live in peace.
“All I want is to live with them somewhere they can study, become engineers or doctors, and serve the country that takes them with all honour and loyalty,” he said. “From everything we see, it’s difficult to hope that Syria will go back to the way it was before.”
Accompanying the Special Envoy were two of her daughters – Zahara, 13, and Shiloh, 11 – who met a group of young Syrian girls at a UNHCR-funded community centre in the camp. The girls are all members of an after-school learning initiative, and they described education as their greatest source of hope for the future.
“My daughters Zahara and Shiloh asked to come with me today,” Ms. Jolie said. “They’ve spent time today speaking and playing with children their own age who have been forced from their homes, whose family members have been killed or have disappeared, and who are struggling with trauma and illness, but who at the end of the day are just children, with the same hopes and rights as children in any other nation.”
“UNHCR does not have the funds to provide in full even the most basic necessities for survival for many families.”
After almost seven years of war, most Syrian refugees have exhausted any savings they had, with the majority now living below the poverty line and surviving on less than US$3 per day.
This has resulted in increasing hardship for refugees, the Special Envoy said, leaving many families without sufficient food, increasing numbers of young girls vulnerable to early marriage, and many Syrians facing yet another winter without proper shelter.
“UNHCR does not have the funds to provide in full even the most basic necessities for survival for many families,” Ms. Jolie said. “Last year, the UNHCR response for the Syria crisis was only 50 per cent funded. So far this year, it is only 7 per cent funded.”
“Really, there is nothing more devastating for UNHCR staff than not to be able to give people the help and support they need and deserve.” Quote Of the Year.

In 1964, I was a little girl sitting on the linoleum floor of my mother’s house in Milwaukee watching Anne Bancroft present the Oscar for Best Actor at the 36th Academy Awards. She opened the envelope and said five words that literally made history: “The winner is Sidney Poitier.” Up to the stage came the most elegant man I had ever seen. I remember his tie was white, and of course his skin was black—and I’d never seen a black man being celebrated like that. And I tried have tried many, many, many times to explain what a moment like that means to a little girl, a kid watching from the cheap seats as my mom came through the door bone tired from cleaning other people’s houses. But all I can do is quote and say that the explanation in Sidney’s performance in Lilies of the Field: “Amen, amen, amen, amen.”

In 1982, Sidney received the Cecil B. DeMille award right here at the Golden Globes and it is not lost on me that at this moment, there are some little girls watching as I become the first black woman to be given this same award. It is an honor—it is an honor and it is a privilege to share the evening with all of them and also with the incredible men and women who’ve inspired me, who’ve challenged me, who’ve sustained me and made my journey to this stage possible. Dennis Swanson who took a chance on me for A.M. Chicago. Quincy Jones who saw me on that show and said to Steven Spielberg, “Yes, she is Sophia in The Color Purple.” Gayle, who’s been the definition of what a friend is and Stedman, who’s been my rock. Just a few to name.

I’d like to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, because we all know the press is under siege these days. But we also know that it is the insatiable dedication to uncovering the absolute truth that keeps us from turning a blind eye to corruption and to injustice. To—to tyrants and victims and secrets and lies. I want to say that I value the press more than ever before as we try to navigate these complicated times, which brings me to this: What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have. And I’m especially proud and inspired by all the women who have felt strong enough and empowered enough to speak up and share their personal stories. Each of us in this room are celebrated because of the stories that we tell, and this year, we became the story.

But it’s not just a story affecting the entertainment industry. It’s one that transcends any culture, geography, race, religion, politics, or workplace. So I want tonight to express gratitude to all the women who have endured years of abuse and assault because they, like my mother, had children to feed and bills to pay and dreams to pursue. They’re the women whose names we’ll never know. They are domestic workers and farm workers. They are working in factories and they work in restaurants and they’re in academia and engineering and medicine and science. They’re part of the world of tech and politics and business. They’re our athletes in the Olympics and they’re our soldiers in the military.

And there’s someone else, Recy Taylor, a name I know and I think you should know, too. In 1944, Recy Taylor was a young wife and a mother. She was just walking home from a church service she’d attended in Abbeville, Alabama, when she was abducted by six armed white men, raped, and left blindfolded by the side of the road coming home from church. They threatened to kill her if she ever told anyone, but her story was reported to the NAACP where a young worker by the name of Rosa Parks became the lead investigator on her case and together they sought justice. But justice wasn’t an option in the era of Jim Crow. The men who tried to destroy her were never persecuted. Recy Taylor died 10 days ago, just shy of her 98th birthday. She lived as we all have lived, too many years in a culture broken by brutally powerful men. For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dared to speak their truth to the power of those men. But their time is up. Their time is up.

Their time is up. And I just hope—I just hope that Recy Taylor died knowing that her truth, like the truth of so many other women who were tormented in those years, and even now tormented, goes marching on. It was somewhere in Rosa Parks’s heart almost 11 years later, when she made the decision to stay seated on that bus in Montgomery, and it’s here with every woman who chooses to say, “Me too.” And every man—every man who chooses to listen.

In my career, what I’ve always tried my best to do, whether on television or through film, is to say something about how men and women really behave. To say how we experience shame, how we love and how we rage, how we fail, how we retreat, persevere, and how we overcome. And I’ve interviewed and portrayed people who’ve withstood some of the ugliest things life can throw at you, but the one quality all of them seem to share is an ability to maintain hope for a brighter morning, even during our darkest nights. So I want all the girls watching here and now to know that a new day is on the horizon! And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say “me too” again. Thank you.

"Are you still awake out there?
"Are you sure about that?
"Can you hear me?
"Are you ready to shake up up the world?
"Welcome to the revolution of love. To the rebellion. To our refusal as women to accept this new age of tyranny. Where not just women are in danger but all marginalized people. Where people uniquely different might be considered a crime. It took us this darkness to wake us the fuck up.
"It seems as though we had all slipped into a false sense of comfort. That justice would prevail and that good would win in the end. Well, good did not win this election but good will win in the end. So what today means is that we are far from the end. Today marks the beginning, the beginning of our story. The revolution starts here. The fight for the right to be free, to be who we are, to be equal. Let's march together through this darkness and with each step. Know that we are not afraid. That we are not alone, that we will not back down. That there is power in our unity and that no opposing force stands a chance in the face of true solidarity.
And to our detractors that insist that this March will never add up to anything, fuck you. Fuck you. It is the beginning of much needed change. Change that will require sacrifice, people. Change that will require many of us to make different choices in our lives, but this is the hallmark of revolution. So my question to you today is are you ready? I said, are you ready? Say yes, we are ready. Say, yes we are ready. One more time: you're ready.
"Yes, I'm angry. Yes, I am outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot of blowing up the White House, but I know that this won't change anything. We cannot fall into despair. As the poet, W.H. Auden once wrote on the eve of World War II: We must love one another or die.
"I choose love. Are you with me? Say this with me: We choose love. We choose love. We choose love."
Repito lo que digo en espanol señores y señoras estan despiertos todavia? Estan listos para mover el mundo? Estar seguros? digo no bueno lo que a pasado porque no!

 Yo pensar cosas malas de una vez en cuando pero no las hago cosas malas no se desesperen! pues a si mismito yo digo any who? any how? a la chingada! los  que dicen de que la marcha que no se que? y que no se cuando?

Si! esto me encojonada! Claro que Si! Yo estoy encojonadisima! yo se les digo portesen bien and you know very well! that day it happen como yo dije lo que paso this is not a surprise! Mas bien escojer el amor! We Choose love!

The Sun Worship with Mantras Chanted by Swami Satchidananda

Hear Swami Satchidananda chant the Sanskrit mantras that accompany the 12 poses that compriseSurya Namaskar, the Sun Worship. Italian artist and Integral Yoga teacher, Eloisa Jyoti Scichilone, has created this lovely animation of Swami Satchidananda performing the 12 poses and now with mantras added. The inspiration is Swami Satchidananda's book, Integral Yoga Hatha and the recording "Soorya Namaskar Mantras." Jyoti earlier created a Surya Namaskar gif for download. Eloisa Jyoti Scichilone is the artist behind the drawings in the new Yoga Affirmations Coloring Book that contains Swami Satchidananda's inspirational quotes.

Lord Siva Nataraja: The Esoteric Meaning

On Tuesday, February 13th, Saivites and yogis worldwide celebrate Maha Sivaratri. At Satchidananda Ashram this festival is observed by an all-night celebration that includes pujas, aratis, stories, and sharings about Lord Siva in all of his different forms. In 1991, when the Lord Siva Nataraja shrine was dedicated in Yogaville, Swami Satchidananda gave the following explanation of the esoteric meaning behind Siva's form as Nataraja: 

Siva, the King of Cosmic Dance, dances within a flaming halo symbolizing the Pranava OM. On his right ear is a man's earring and on the left ear is a woman's earring, showing that he is both male and female. The cobras that coil around the hair and body represent the cosmic force of Siva, the Supreme Yogi. His Panchakriya, or five-fold activities, are represented by: o Hand holding drum = evolution through sound
o Hand in Abhaya Mudra = the "fear not" seal for preservation
o Right leg resting on Muyalaka = the subduing of the deluded egoistic soul that has suffered enough and cries for salvation
o Hand pointing to the raised left foot = the grace that saves the soul that cares to come to his feet
o Hand holding fire = ultimate dissolution
      As long as we remain in ignorance, we go through suffering under his foot. Then, when we cry for enlightenment, he says, “Fear not. Come unto my raised foot and you will be saved."

Maha Sivaratri and Yoga
By Tapasyogi Nandhi

For a yogi, Maha Sivaratri is the “Day/Night of Yoga,” the time to transcend, transform, and evolve....Lord Siva is our awake soul, the Spirit that is mentioned in the Bible as the Holy Ghost. By observing Maha Sivaratri and attaining the state of blissful union with Lord Siva, through the night of Maha Sivaratri, the state of Turiya awakens as the experience beyond limits of the mind....The state of Turiya is called the sleepless sleep: a realm beyond the mind that is of intense joy and bliss. The state of Turiya is also attained by each of us when we are in totality of focus, inspiration, excitement, and happiness while doing something that we enjoy—when we do not feel tired, hungry, hot, cold, or sleepy.  MORE

Got to go bye!
And, More later pomise. Sank you very much! 

Satsang by Swami Amar Jyoti
THE PHYSICISTS AND SCIENTISTS of today have described the movement of particles as a dance. What they are trying to discover is the dance of Lord Shiva.
When you dance and sing the name of God, your kundalini* begins to rise, your nervous system gets lighter, your mind gets purified, and humility is the natural outcome. This is the path of devotion--where you lose yourself in singing God's Name. For those who keep to etiquette, their path is self-inquiry, analysis and auto-reflection. There is a third path in the yoga tradition that is still higher than these: go within silently and surrender.
When you are singing and dancing in devotion, you are still going through the senses, though purified. But when you surrender you do not use your senses; you just drop into silence and awakening. None of these paths is inferior; it depends upon your temperament. You will awaken as a fully conscious being, solid as the Himalayas. Storms may come and go but the Himalayas will not move.
When you drop into Silence, you awake as shining Light. Actually you come back to your original Self. And in that Realization you will see how the creation is happening in a dancing form. Where there is no fear, no shyness--there you joyfully merge unto your Lord. We call it ancient, eternal, infinite. There is a stage when you will experience creation as a dance. In spiritual language we call it ecstasy. When ecstasy expresses, it becomes dancing. In its own pristine stage, ecstasy is non-expressive; therefore it does not seem to be dancing. But if you are in ecstasy inside, all the particles within your body-mind complex are actually dancing. That is why you feel ecstasy rising up.
Any movement is not dancing, only when it is rhythmic. When you have imbalance or non-rhythmic movements, when your mind is disturbed or restless, you lose the joy and the dancing. Again when you flow in rhythm with the Lord, you feel joy and ecstasy. When you enter the ocean of awareness you will see that all the particles of creation are dancing a cosmic dance. That is being in tune with the cosmos and surrendered unto the Lord.
What is surrender actually? You are merging into the One Who is pure ecstasy. When you are in this cosmic tune, all the movements in your body-mind complex are in joyful movement. Even if you are sitting perfectly still, the particles and atoms of the universe are coming into you and going out of you incessantly, maintaining the mirage of stability. Your body is changing every second, like a whirlpool in which the water is incessantly flowing in and out. If you could watch those movements, you would see that they are dancing.
The amount of imbalance you experience is proportional to your un-rhythmic movements. To put it differently: to the degree you have truth in you, you are stable; to the degree you have untruth, you are unstable. Whatever is unrhythmic is chaos. And that is where you feel misery, pain, separation, lack of love, lack of satisfaction, lack of union, and all that. You might have experienced sometimes when you have a very good meditation, a tingling begins to rise up within you. You feel light and joyful all of a sudden. Whenever you are in rhythmic flow, your body and mind are in complete harmony and balance and ego dissolves.
         When Lord Shiva dances he brings balance back in the creation. They say the earth shakes when Lord Shiva dances his cosmic dance, Tandava Nritya. Call it mythology, symbolism or realism--it is as real as any other phenomena. When the earth shakes, some die, some howl, some grieve, some faint away, some struggle, some watch what is happening, some sleep, and some go on praying, "God, have mercy upon us."
That is what we call Shiva's dance of destruction: the earth shakes, your body shakes. The transformation power of that struggle is to create balance or rhythm, and when that happens, we regain harmony and peace. The elements that are disturbing or are bringing un-rhythmic energy are purified and transformed in that holocaust. In order for the dance of destruction to subside, they say Lord Shiva's consort, Parvati, goes on praying, "Lord, now be merciful." Lord Shiva's anger, so-called, subsides. He heaves a relieved sigh and that again creates balance.
This holocaust happens when we have not paid heed to God's loving persuasions. We call it a holocaust but it is benevolence, blessings in disguise. It brings you back to the cosmic dance, and when you dance in unison, in oneness, in ecstasy, it is heaven. That is called Golok Dham, the Kingdom of God, the Garden of Eden, life divine. That blissful rhythm will eradicate all disease, all miseries, and all sense of separation.
To get back to that rhythm you have to first drop into silence. Without destroying anything, your being subsides. You relax those un-rhythmic movements so that you emerge in ecstasy. That ecstasy of dance is incessantly going on in your body, mind and life. One could explain it in various ways. Cooking or painting can be done in that rhythmic dance. You can sing in rhythm and flow with it. You can even drive your car from home to office in such a way that your energy flows in a rhythmic way.
Where are you when you are not in tune with this flow? You must be in your ego trip, doing for you. When you dance with the Lord you are in rhythm with the Lord, not with your ego. So this Tandava Nritya dance is God's way to bring us back into balance, individually and globally. Somewhere we have to come to balance, either by the method of destruction or by quietly merging in tune with the Lord.
* Through various practices, including purifications, pranayam, mantra and meditation, the initiated adept gradually raises the "serpent power" of the kundalini from the base
chakra upward until it reaches the crown chakra, the sahasrara "thousand-petalled lotus," resulting in full Enlightenment.
Excerpted from

Gurudeva often spoke of how one day spirituality and science would merge, as scientists and spiritual seekers meet in their quest for what the scientists sometimes call the Unified Field-synonymous with Consciousness, God, Brahman, the Absolute, Eternal, Light, the Divine. Through these Satsangs this ancient wisdom is approachable not only for the scholarly or the adept but for all who come with an open mind and heart. As Gurudeva reveals: "When you will, one-hundred-percent, to know the secret of your own life, you shall arrive at the highest discovery: the Light, the Divine within you. The sages, Enlightened Beings and Prophets are telling us that this is possible for everyone. They show the way because potentially everyone is Divine; everyone is Light. We are made of that Consciousness."

Heels Over Head(stand): A Step-by-Step Tutorial

Ever wanted to get a little topsy-turvy during your Hatha Yoga practice but weren’t sure how? Now’s your chance! Inversions might look daunting, but with thorough instructions, a little practice, and a lot of patience, you’ll be upside down in no time. Below you’ll find the Integral Yoga instructions for Sirshasana, or the Headstand, as given by Swami Satchidananda in the book, Integral Yoga Hatha. Follow along with the step-by-step photos to ensure proper form.
Please take note: you should not attempt this pose if you have high blood pressure, neck or head injury, or osteoporosis.
If you don’t feel ready for Headstand, try a more gentle inversion such as Legs Up Against the Wall, Bridge Pose, or Shoulderstand. Remember to practice under the supervision of a Yoga teacher and make sure that you don’t have any health concerns that may contraindicate the posture.

Technique (Part I)

Stage I: Kneel. Lock the fingers and create an angle on the floor with the forearms by placing them on the floor in front of you. Let the locked fingers serve as the vertex of this angle. The distance between the elbows should be a forearm’s length, thus forming an equilateral triangle.
Stage II: Then place the crown of the head on the floor, close to the locked fingers, so that the locked fingers can support the back of the head.
Stage III: Slowly lift the trunk, bringing it perpendicular to the ground. To do this, you must raise the knees and bring the toes nearer to the face. When you have raised the trunk sufficiently, you will automatically feel that the toes can be lifted slowly off the ground, without any jumping or jerking. Conversely, if the trunk is not lifted sufficiently, and if the toes are jerked up, there is every possibility of your falling backward.

Technique (Part II):

Stage IV: After getting used to the earlier stages of Sirshasana, slowly lift the toes and fold the legs so that the heels come closer to the buttocks, with the soles facing up.
Stage V: Gently lift the thighs, bringing them through a horizontal position.

Stage VI: Slowly straighten the thighs in line with the trunk of the body. Keep the spine erect. Now the knees will be facing up and the legs hanging down behind the thighs.
Stage VII (Final Stage): Make sure of the balance fully before proceeding further. Little by little, unfold the legs upward to form the full pose. The weight of the body should be distributed between the head and forearms initially. Later on, the entire weight should be allowed to fall on the top of the head, with the forearms placed lightly on the floor only to maintain balance.
When coming down, reverse the order—folding the legs first, next bringing the thighs close to the chest, and then placing the knees and toes on the ground. Then, lift the head, take the forearms off the floor, and assume Vajrasana (pelvic pose) to rest awhile and harmonize the blood circulation. Breathe normally throughout the pose.
Caution: Each stage of Sirshasana must be practiced for several days before going on to the next stage, so that the muscles get used to the pose gradually. It is better to start practicing Sirshasana after mastering the other poses. Never try to jerk up the legs in order to assume the pose. If there is any vomiting or nauseous feeling while doing the pose, drink half a cup of milk and begin the practice a half-hour later. Keep the mouth closed. If saliva collects, do not swallow it, but dispose of it after the pose is finished. If you feel like sneezing, coughing, or yawning while in the position, come down immediately, before doing so. Do not practice this pose if there is disturbance in the organs of the head or if headache or fever is present.
Time: Start practice with ten seconds’ duration and gradually increase the time up to ten minutes. After practicing all the poses for a good length of time, those who wish to drop the other poses may do Sirshasana alone for twenty-five to thirty minutes.
Benefits: This pose builds up a healthy brain and tones the entire nervous system. It favorably influences all the endocrine glads, particularly the pineal, pituitary, thyroid, and parathyroids. It aids in the relief of almost all nervous ailments, improves memory power, and is useful in ridding oneself of seminal weaknesses such as premature ejaculation and nocturnal emissions. It helps in the maintaining of celibacy. It helps to relieve nervous and hepatic types of asthma, as well as diseases of the lungs, digestive, and genitourinary system. Uterine and ovarian diseases are relieved. This pose benefits the body overall and helps to relieve many diseases.
If you have an established headstand practice, you may try the variation of Oordhwa Padmasana, or the Upward Lotus pose.
Technique: Assume Sirshasana (headstand). During the final stage, slowly fold the legs downward to form Padmasana (lotus pose). The body should be at complete right angles to the floor, with the lotus stretched upward. Another way of doing Oordhwa Padmasana is to begin by sitting in Padmasana. Place the palms, with fingers outstretched, in front of the corresponding knees, on the floor. Balance on the palms, and slide the knees over the forearms up to the elbows, bringing the head downward, with the lotus stretched up.
Caution: This pose calls for very strong arms and wrists.

How It Works

Rarely have we seen a person failed who has thoroughly follow our path. those who do not recover are people who cannot or will not completely give themselves to this simple program usually men and women who are constitutionally incapable of being honest with themselves.
There are such unfortunates they are not at fault; they seem to have been born that way.  They are naturally incapable of grasping and developing a manner of living which demands rigorous honesty. Their chances are less than average. There are, those, who suffer grave emotional and mental disorders, but many of them recover if they have the capacity to be honest. 

Our stories disclose in a general way what we use to be like, what happened, and what we are now. If you have decided you want what we have and are willing to go to any length to get it. Then you are ready to take certain steps. 
At some of these we balked. We thought, we could find an easier softer way,  but we could not. With all earnestly  at our command. We beg of you to be fearless and thorough from the very start. Some of us have tried to hold on to old ideas but the result was nil until we let go absolutely.
Remember that we deal with alcohol- cunning, baffling and powerful! Without help it is too much for us. But there is One who has all the power - that one is God. May you find him now!

Step One

“We admitted we were powerless over alcohol – that our lives had become unmanageable.”

Who  cares to admit complete defeat? Practically no one, of course. Every natural instinct cries out against the idea of personal powerlessness. It is truly awful to admit that, glass in hand, we have warped our minds into such an obsession for destructive drinking that only an act of Providence can remove it from us.
            No other kind of bankruptcy is like this one. Alcohol, now become the rapacious creditor, bleeds us of all self- sufficiency and all will to resist its demands. Once this stark fact is accepted, our bankruptcy as going human concerns is complete.
            But upon entering A.A We  soon take quite another view of this absolute humiliation. We perceive that only through utter defeat are we able to take our first steps toward liberation and strength. Our admissions of personal powerlessness finally turn out to be firm bedrock upon which happy purposeful lives may be built.
            We know that little good can come to any alcoholic who joins A.A. unless he has firs accepted his devastating weakness and all its consequences. Until he so humbles himself, his sobriety- if any- will be precarious. Of real happiness he will find none at all. Proved beyond doubt by an immense experience, this is one of the facts of A.A life.
The principle that we shall find no enduring strength until we first admit complete defeat is the main taproot from which our whole Society has sprung and flowered.
            When first challenged to admit defeat, most of us revolted. We had approached  A.A. expecting to be taught self -confidence. Then we  had been told that so far as alcohol is concerned, self- confidence was no good whatever, in fact, it was a total liability. Our sponsors declared that we were victims of a mental obsession so subtly powerful that no amount of human willpower could break it. There was,  they said , no such thing as personal conquest of this compulsion by the unaided will. Relentlessly deepening our dilemma, our sponsors pointed out our increasing sensibility to alcohol- an allergy, they called it. The tyrant alcohol wield a double edged sword over us: First we  were smitten by an insane urged that condemned us to go on drinking, and then by an allergy of the that insured we would ultimately destroy ourselves in the process. Few indeed were those, who assailed, had ever won through in single handed combat. It was a statistical that alcoholics almost never recover on their own resources. And this has been true, apparently, ever since man had first crushed grapes.
            In A,A,’s pioneering time, no one but the most desperate cases could swallow and digest this unpalatable truth. Even these “last-gaspers” often had difficulty how hopeless they actually were. But a few did, and when  these laid hold of A.A. principles with a the fervor with which the drowning seize life preservers, they almost invariably got well. That is why the first edition of the book “alcoholics anonymous” published when our membership was small, dealt with low-bottom cases only. Many less desperate alcoholics tried A.A., but did not succeed because they could not make the admission of hopelessness.
            It is tremendous satisfaction to record that in the following years this changed. Alcoholics who still had their health, their families, their jobs, and even two cars in the garage, began to recognize their alcoholism. As this trend grew, they were joined by young people who were scarcely more than potential alcoholics. They were spared that last ten or fifteen years of literal hell the rest of us had gone through. Since Step One require and admission that our lives have become unmanageable, how could people like us these take this step?
            It was obviously necessary to raise the bottom the re of us hit to the point where it could not hit them. By going back in our own drinking stories, we could not show that years before we realized it we were out of control, that our drinking even then was no mere habit, that it was indeed the beginning of a fatal progression. To the doubters we could say, “Perhaps you are not an alcoholic after all. Why don’t you try some more controlled drinking, bearing in mind meanwhile  we have told you about alcoholism?” This attitude brought immediate and practical results. It was then discovered that when one alcoholic had planted in the mind of another the true nature of his malady, that person could never be the same again. Following every spree, he would say to himself, “Maybe those A.A’’s were right…” after a few such experiences, often years before the onset of extreme difficulties, he would return to us convinced.  He had hit bottom as truly as any of us, John Barleycorn himself had become our best advocate.
            Why all this insistence that every A.A. must hit bottom first? The answer is that few people will sincerely try to practice A.A. program unless they had hit bottom. For practicing the A.A. program unless they have hit bottom firs? The answer is that few people will sincerely try to practice the A.A. program unless they have hit bottom. For practicing A.A.’s remaining eleven Steps means the adoption of attitudes and actions that almost no alcoholic who is still drinking can dream of taking. Who wishes to be rigorously honest and tolerant? Who wants to confess his faults to another and make restitution to harm done? Who cares anything about Higher Power, let alone meditation and prayer? Who wants to sacrifice time and energy in trying to carry A.A.’s message to the next sufferer? No,  the average alcoholic, self- centered in the extreme, doesn’t care for this prospect – unless he has to do these things in order to stay alive himself.
            Under the lash of alcoholism, we are driven to A.A., and there we discovered the fatal nature of our situation. Then, and only then, do we become as open minded to conviction and as willing to listen as the dying can be. We stand ready to do anything which will lift the merciless obsession from us.

“Came to believe that a power greater than ourselves will restore us to sanity.”

The moment they read Step 2, most A.A. new comers are confronted with a dilemma, sometimes a serious one. How often do we hear them cry out “Look what you people have done to us! You have convinced us that we are alcoholics and that our lives have become unmanageable. Having reduced us to a state of absolute helplessness, you now declare that none but a Higher Power can remove our obsession. Some of us won’t believe in God,  others can’t and still others who do believe that God exists have no faith He will perform a miracle. Yes, you got us over the barrel, all right – but where do we go from her?’
Let’s look first at the case of the one who says he wont believe- the belligerent one. He is in a state of mind which can be described only as savage. His whole philosophy of life, in which he so gloried, is threatened.  It’s bad enough, he thinks, to admit alcohol has him down for keeps. But now, still smarting from admission, he is faced with something really impossible. How he does cherish the thought that man, risen so majestically from a single cell in the primordial ooze, is the spearhead of evolution and therefore the only god that his universe knows! Must he renounce all this to save himself?
            At this juncture, his A.A. sponsor usually laughs. This the newcomer thinks, is just about the last straw. This is the beginning of the end. And so it is: the beginning of the end of his old life, and the beginning of  his emergence into a new one. His sponsor probably says, “Take it easy, The hoop you have jump through is a lot wider than you think. At least I found it so. So did a friend of mine was one-time vice president of the American Atheist Society, but he through with room to spare.”
                        “Well,” says the newcomer, “I know you’re telling me the truth. It’s no doubt a fact that A.A. is full of people who once believed  as I do. But just how, in these circumstances, does a fellow ‘take it easy”? That’s what I want to know”
                        “That,” agrees the sponsor, “is a very good question indeed. I think I can tell you exactly how to relax. You won’t have to work at it very hard, either. Listen, if you will , to these three statements. First, Alcoholic Anonymous does not demand that you believe in anything. All of its Twelve Steps are but suggestions. Second, to get sober and to stay sober, you don’t have to swallow Step Two right now, Looking back, I find that I took it piecemeal myself.  Third, all you really need is an open mind. Just resign from the debating society and quit bothering yourself with such a deep questions as whether it was the hen or the egg that came first, Again I say, all you need is the open mind.”
                         The sponsor continues “Take for example, my own case. I had a scientific schooling. Naturally I respected, venerated, even worshiped science. As a matter of fat, I still do-all except the worship part. Time after time my instructors held up to me the basic principle of all scientific progress; search and research, again and again, always with an open mind.
            When I first looked at A.A. my first reaction was just like yours. This A.A. business, I thought, is totally unscientific. This I can’t swallow. I simply won’t consider such nonsense.
                       “ Then I woke up. I had to admit that A.A. showed results, prodigious results, I saw that my attitude regarding these had been anything but scientific. It wasn’t A.A that had the closed mind, it was me. The minute I stopped arguing, I could begin to see and feel. Right there, Step Two gently and very gradually began to infiltrate my life. I can’t say upon what occasion or upon what day I came to believe in a Power greater than myself, but I certainly have to belief now. To acquire it, I had only to stop fighting and practice the rest of A.A’s program as enthusiastically as I could.

                        This is only one man’s opinion based on his own experience, of course. I must quickly assure you that A.A.’s tread innumerable paths in their quest for faith. If you don’t care for the one I suggested, you’ll be sure to discover one that suits if only you look and listen. Many a man like you has begun to solve the problem by the method of substitution. You can, if you wish make A.A itself your “higher power.” Here’s a very large group of people who have solved their alcohol problem. In this respect they are certainly a power greater than you, who have not even come close to a solution.  Surely you can have faith in them. Even this minimum faith will be enough. You will find many members who have crossed the threshold just this way. All of them will tell you that, once across, their faith broadened and deepened. Relieve of the alcohol obsession, their lives unaccountably transformed, they came to believe in a higher Power, and most of them began to talk of God”

      Step 3

“ made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood him”

            PRACTICING Step Three is like the opening of a door which to all appearances is still closed and locked. All we need is a key, and it is called willingness. Once unlocked by willingness, the door opens almost of itself, and looking through it, we shall see a pathway beside which is an inscription. It reads: “ This is the way  to a faith that works.” In the first two Steps we were engaged in reflection. We saw that we were powerless over alcohol, but we also perceived that faith of some kind, if only in A.A. itself., is possible to anyone. These conclusion did not require action; they require acceptance.
            Like all the remaining Steps, Step Three calls for affirmative action, for it is only by action that we can cut away the self-will which has always blocked the entry of God- or, if you like, a Higher Power – into our lives. Faith to be sure, is necessary, but faith alone can avail nothing. We can have faith, yet keep Good out of our lives. Therefore our problem now becomes just how and by what specific means shall we be able to let Him in.  Step Three  represents  our first attempt  to do this fact, in the effectiveness of the whole A.A. program will rest upon how well and earnestly we have tried to become to “a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.”
            To every worldly and practical minded beginner. This Step looks hard, even impossible. No matter how much one wishes to try, exactly how can he turn his own will and his own life over to the care of God he thinks there is? Fortunately, we who have tried it, and with equal misgiving, can testify that anyone, anyone, at all can begin to do it. We can further add that a beginning, even the smallest, is all that is needed. Once  we have placed the key of willingness in the lock and have the door ever so slightly open, we find that we can always open it some more. Though self  will slam it shut again, as it frequently  does, it will always respond to the moment we again pick up the key of willingness.
            Maybe this all sounds mysterious and remote, some thing like Einstein theory of relativity or a proposition in nuclear physics. It isn’t all.  Lets look  at how practical it actually is. Every  man and woman who has joined A.A. and intends to stick has, without realizing it, made a beginning on Step Three. Isn’t t true that I n all matters touching upon alcohol, each of them decided to turn  his or her  life over to the care, protection, and guidance of Alcohol Anonymous? Already a willingness has been achieved to cast out one’s own will and one’s own ideas about the alcohol problem in favor of those suggested by A.A. Any willing newcomer feels sure A.A. is the only safe harbor for the foundering vessel has become. Now, if this not turning one’s will and life over to a newfound Providence, then what is it?
            But suppose that instinct still cries out, as certainly will, Yes respecting alcohol, I guess I have to be dependent upon A.A., but in all other matters I must still maintain my independence. Nothing is going to turn me into a nonentity. If I keep on turning my life and my will over to the care  of Something or Somebody else, what will become of me? I’ll look like the hole in the doughnut.” This, of course, is the process by which instinct and logic always seek bolster egotism, and so frustrates spiritual development. The trouble is that this kind of thinking takes no real account of the facts. And the facts seem to be these: The more we become willing to depend upon a higher Power, the more independent we actually are. Therefore dependence, as A.A. practices it, is really a means of gaining trues independence of the spirit.

            Let’s examine for a moment this idea of dependence at the level of everyday living. In this area it is startling to discover how dependent we really are, and how unconscious of that dependence….

God, I offer myself to thee to build with me and to do with me as though wilt. Relieved me of the bondage of self, that I may better do thy will. Take away my difficulties, that victory over them may bear witness to

Those I would help of Thy power, Thy love and Thy way of life.

Angelina Jolie Travels to Jordan with Daughters Shiloh and Zahara to Meet with Syrian Refugees

Angelina Jolie is passing on her passion for humanitarian work to the next generation of her family.
The actress was joined by daughters Zahara, 13, and Shiloh, 11, during a UNHCR trip to the Zataari refugee camp in Jordan on Sunday. There, they met with Syrians who fled the violence of the ongoing civil war in the country, including girls around Jolie’s daughters’ ages who were part of the TIGER (These Inspiring Girls Enjoy Reading) project, which focuses on education and empowerment even in displacement.
The trip was Shiloh’s third visit to a refugee camp and the first for Zahara.
One girl told Jolie and her daughters, “We believe if the adults can make peace now, we young women will build on that peace and help.”
The project, in partnership with International Relief and Development, is designed to fight the epidemic of refugees dropping out of school, with only 20 percent completing a secondary school education. TIGER works with Syrian female coaches to help the girls build confidence.

Girls at the Zataari refugee camp wrote their dreams on small pieces of paper, which they put in balloons and released. One said, “I want to be one of the balloons outside of the box.”
Jolie, 42, spoke to the refugees about how they inspired her and gave her hope.
“After seven years of war, most Syrian refugees have exhausted any savings they had. The vast majority of them already live below the poverty line, on less than three dollars a day. Imagine what that would mean for your family,” she said in a speech. “Here, it means families going without sufficient food; children unable to get medical treatment; young girls vulnerable to early marriage; and many Syrians facing their seventh winter without proper shelter.”
The actress added, “Humanitarian aid is not a long-term solution. And to be clear, no one wants to get off aid relief more than Syrian families.”
Ivor Prickett/UNHCR
“For such an educated, capable people, it is soul-destroying to be made this dependent. So I would urge the Security Council members to come to the region, to visit the camps and the urban refugees, and find a way to finally bring the full weight of the UN and international community to bear to solve this conflict.”
Jolie’s daughters asked to join her on the trip. Their siblings, 9-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox, stayed in France with their big brothers, Maddox, 16, and Pax, 14.They will spend time in Europe together when Jolie, Zahara and Shiloh return from Jordan.

January 31, 2018

Beloved masters, there is a great stirring taking place among the masses — those who, until now, were not ready to listen to the inner nudgings of Spirit or to delve into the mysteries of creation. The frequency patterns of the new Divine Blueprint are beginning to flow into your awareness on the currents of change. We have said that you were very brave to step out of your comfort zone, out of the mass consciousness flow of popular beliefs and into the uncertainty of untried territory. You have been willing to face up to the challenges, and to not be deterred by those who said you were wrong, evil, or called you “wishful-thinkers.” You are proving that what you have accepted as your truth is indeed working, and the validation is concrete and visible for all to see so that there can be no dispute. Fear is the greatest deterrent to change, but you have tamed your fears, and more and more of you are stepping forth into your power.

Each time you visit your Fifth-Dimensional Pyramid of Power/Light, you become more adept at tapping into and using the gifts of Creation. You gradually bring back more and more of the rarified, unmanifested Adamantine Particles of Creator Light to infuse, integrate and share. See these streams of Light spiraling down into the physical realms of expression, as they gradually become tangible and take form under your direction via your visions, dreams and clear intention. Many of you have learned the discipline necessary to hold your visions without wavering, and you are learning that the miracles of manifestation take place one clear thought, one step or action, and one day at a time. There are no shortcuts, beloveds; you must follow the Universal Laws of Manifestation in order to harness the power of Creation.

No matter where you are on the Path of en-Lighten-ment, if you are reading our messages, and you are doing your best to claim your Self-mastery, there is a place for you among the new Legions of Light that are being formed around the world. As you become proficient at accessing the power and majesty of the higher Dimensions, and you begin to get a glimpse of how wondrous the material planes of existence can be, the excitement begins to build. That is what is happening all over the world. It is a very personal experience, for even though you may have much confusion, turmoil and chaos around you, you are learning to stay centered within a hologram of harmonious co-existence and joy. As time goes by, you will find that your center of serenity will extend further and further outward. And as more of you begin to tap into the eternal power of the higher planes of consciousness, it will spread faster and faster. Never doubt, dear ones, it will ultimately encompass the world, for it is an integral part of the future of humanity and the Earth.

One of the major areas of physical interaction that must be explained so that you may come to a greater understanding, is the balance of the male/female energies within each of you. The battle of the sexes began aeons ago, as some of the unique energies of the Lemurian Race and the Atlantean Race began to merge. The Lemurian race was OverLighted by the energy of the beloved Mother Goddess. She focused on the integration of the Love/emotional nature within the physical vessel − along with the desire to create on the physical plane, and to nurture and assist the new Spirits arriving on Earth. Last but not least, was to establish each Soul’s intuitive mind connection with Spirit via the Creative Cord of Life/Light. This was the dominating focus of the Divine Blueprint for humanity at that time. You were like joyous, exuberant, curious children, for this was a grand new experience for all of you.

Midway through the Age of Lemuria, the Golden Age of Atlantis began to emerge, and for this cycle, the dynamic energies of the Father God were the dominant force on Earth. Powerful masculine energies came to the fore, as humanity learned to use their minds to control the energies of the First Ray and to become masters of cocreation on the earthly plane. You added the mental body components as you became more proficient in developing and using your physical senses, as well as your spiritual senses, or what you now call extrasensory perception. As the energies of polarity and duality began to emerge, a division in consciousness also came into play. Some perceived the masculine traits and attributes to be superior, and others favored the gentler feminine virtues. Gradually the battle of the sexes began, and you began to mistrust the opposite sex more and more because of the many painful memories you experienced over your many lifetimes.

Dear hearts, you are a composite of all your vast past experiences and memories. You have had many lifetimes as a female where you were abused or mistreated by men. There have also been many lifetimes in the male body where you suffered the loss of your beloved mate, you were betrayed, or you did not measure up in some way. All those conflicting energies − encoded in Memory Seed Atoms within your auric field, your brain structure and your DNA − will color your outlook on the opposite sex – that is, until you resolve and transmute them.

You eventually separated into two Sub-Rays, one representing our Father God, and the other a representing our Mother God. You have divided and separated into many Facets / Fragments of consciousness since, but you have forever yearned and sought your wholeness or “Holiness.” At the core of your Being, what you are really seeking is the reunification with the other half of your perfect God Spark of Creation that was sent forth into conscious awareness.

How can you accomplish the healing and reunification of these two primary Facets of yourself? First, by developing a balanced sense of Self-worth and Self-love. You will begin to radiate the higher vibratory energy outward from your auric force field, and those with whom you come in contact will respond in kind. Learn to trust yourself and your intuition so that you may trust others. You will never feel alone when you learn that you have a mighty force of angels ever near you: ready to protect, encourage, love, and support you every moment of the day or night. Release the pain of the past by forgiving yourself and all others.

Go into your Sacred Pyramid, and envision all the players in your many dramas of life there with you. Ask that all the imbalanced energies, painful distorted memories, and hurtful interactions be dissolved in the fountain of the wondrous neutralizing Violet Flame of Transformation. Watch as the electrifying waves of Creator Light permeate your Being to its depths, gradually returning you to a perfect balance of godly virtues, both masculine and feminine in nature. Then see all those major players from your past healed and brought into harmony, as well. Watch as they merge and blend with you as you all become a unified, balanced whole. If you do this, the lessons you were to learn from these interactions will be deemed successful. You will change all the probable futures you have created with these past Soul companions, and you will not have to play out the scenarios in the old karmic way of cause and effect interaction.

Are you ready to assume the many cloaks of empowerment and godliness – that of being a nurturing mother and/or a strong father figure, the playful child, a comforting Soul mate, or a faithful friend? Your relationships are changing; your Soul families are growing, and encompassing hundreds, even thousands, instead of focusing only on your physical family, thereby limiting your love to the few.

You are moving toward a higher vibration of love, that which incorporates “Spirit/Soul love” as well as human “heart love.” You will have to confront your fears of intimacy, and open your heart to give and receive the deepest, most profound human love possible. You must open your total Being to love — love from the Creator Source down to the least of God’s creations. How can you begin the process of reunification without love, one for another?

There will still be those who come into your life with whom you do not resonate, and that will be so as long as you are in the physical vessel. If you can maintain an attitude of nonjudgment, and radiate love to the Essence of each person, you will not have to experience a karmic dance or interaction with them. Bless them and allow them to follow their Path, while you follow your own.

It is time for humanity to remove the etheric shields of protection they have placed over their heart/solar plexus centers so that they cannot be hurt or unduly influenced. Removing the protective membrane of Light, which guards your Sacred Heart, will allow the Love/Light of our Father/Mother to flow freely both into and then outward from your Sacred Heart Center.

Dear hearts, there is another important concept that we wish to present to you. In doing so, we know that it will trigger fear and doubt for many of you. If this is the case, we ask you to set the information to the side, and ask that it be validated if it is to be your truth, or if it is too uncomfortable, to just disregard it. There is much information coming forth that will challenge the old concepts and thought forms of the past. Just as children learn the simple basic concepts in their early years, and the lessons and theories become more complex and thought-provoking as they mature – this applies to your spiritual education and growth as well.

We have told you that the Supreme Creator has begun to emanate new rarified Love/Light Essence from the core of Its Being. It contains all the Facets of Creation, which include White Fire Seed Atoms (energy components) of never before experienced new creations. Within the wondrous multiple beams of Creator Light is a black Ray of pure unmanifested potential. The Creator is sending this Ray as a gift to all of you — it contains the stillness of the Great Void. It is accessible to all who are brave enough to tap into it, and to use some of your reserve of Adamantine Particles of Light to help mold and recreate the beauty and majesty of Gaia – your host planet. First came the Void, and then came the Light, and within the Light are all good and wondrous things; however, the Light would not shine so brightly without the darkness.

Many of you fear the darkness and your shadow side, perceiving them as evil. All is a part of the ONE, the Creator. There is nothing to fear. You, as human Beings, have created many things to fear, but that is not the Creator’s doing. Do you fear the great void that is the backdrop for the stars and constellations? Some of you fear the night, yet it is not the darkness that you can lay the blame on, but the hurtful things that humans do under the cover of darkness. We wish to help you to begin to investigate and transmute those old self-limiting concepts so you may broaden your horizons and assume your cloak of Light. With the gift of Light comes a great responsibility — the leadership role that we mentioned earlier.

We ask you to LIVE your lives with a heightened sense of awareness; to FEEL the joy of being connected to All That Is, and then to share the joy with others; to use your WILL power to move swiftly along the path of enlightenment, so as you gain a higher vantage point, you can more easily assist others over the rough spots: to LOVE others with all your heart and Soul, as the Creator loves you; to SPEAK your highest truth with love, compassion, and discernment; to SEE the best in everyone; and to know that we are all a part of the same great I AM.

Precious friends, we began and we will complete this particular Divine Mission together so that you may join us in the next great “Cosmic Adventure” that our Father/Mother God have planned. We will encourage you, stretch your minds, and we will gently nudge you when appropriate, but most of all, we will love you eternally. I AM Archangel Michael.

Recently rediscovered 100-year-old posters showing the struggle for votes for women are going on show for the first time. They pull no punches in their depiction of the strength of feeling among the women who fought for equal rights.

Addressed simply to "the Librarian", a bundle wrapped in plain brown paper was delivered to Cambridge University Library sometime around 1910, and it took over 100 years for the contents of the parcel to be rediscovered, in 2016, preserved in their original wrapping.

Underneath the faded paper was one of the largest surviving collections of suffrage posters from the early 20th Century.

They had been sent by a leading figure of the suffrage movement, Marion Phillips, who became Labour MP for Sunderland in 1929.

It is unclear why Phillips sent the posters.

"They were created to be plastered on walls, torn down by weather or political opponents," says Chris Burgess, exhibitions officer at the library. "So it is highly unusual for this material to be safely stored."

The posters are going on show to mark the centenary of the 1918 Representation of the People Act, which gave the vote to women over the age of 30.

Because of Cambridge's prestigious university, local suffrage posters often featured women in academic dress.

Artists observed that the city's educated women were still grouped - in the eyes of the law - with the likes of convicts and lunatics.

Although Cambridge's women-only colleges such as Girton and Newnham had very active suffrage societies, the university itself was far from progressive.

By the end of the 19th Century, women were allowed to study at the university but were not given full degrees at the end of their studies. When an 1897 vote proposed to change this, there was outrage.

An effigy of a lady cyclist - a symbol of the new woman - was torn down and destroyed to the delight of the jeering crowds of male students.

Posters also tried to appeal to working-class women, such as those working in textile factories or at home as seamstresses.

Some pointed out that these women were not even able to vote on laws that concerned women's regulations and rights.

This meant men were voting on what they believed to be best for women.

Lucy Delap, a historian specialising in this period, says most people in the UK were against women getting the vote.

As a result, "the suffrage movement definitely had to reach out to many women".

"Campaigning went far beyond the simple equality message - to point out how the vote could make a difference in households, at work, on the streets - matters that concerned all women," she says.

Print production was central to the suffrage campaigns.

"People would be cranking out handbills to be distributed the same day through networks of sash-wearing volunteers, or printing posters advertising meetings taking place that same evening," says Ms Delap.

To appeal to the widest audience, Ms Delap says, the suffrage posters took inspiration from the tabloids, using eye-catching headlines, large cartoons and photographs.

And the suffragists were media-savvy political campaigners - reacting to the policies of the day.

In 1909, there was a national outcry when Home Secretary Herbert Gladstone ordered that imprisoned protestors on hunger strike should be force-fed.

John Bull - a fictional figure commonly used to personify the UK, and England in particular - is depicted in the image above.

Without the help of a woman, he is struggling alone with children and housework, visual metaphors for the social problems of the Edwardian era.

This poster suggests if women could vote, then problems including infant mortality, poor schooling and unemployment might more easily be solved for the benefit of everyone.

"Handicapped" was one of the most popular posters of the suffrage campaign, painted by Bloomsbury Group artist Duncan Grant.

It shows a young privileged man being easily propelled forwards by votes, while a woman struggles on choppier waters in a simple row boat.

Mrs Partington was another familiar figure used by the UK press at the time.

She was usually seen trying to stem progress with her mop.

In this case, she is trying to stop the seeming flood of support for women's votes.

The poster below called for support for political organisations - listed on the children's bibs - to be withdrawn until women were able to participate at the ballot box.

Some posters explicitly call for "law-abiding" meetings. Ms Delap says the movement was split over whether more violent action was needed.

"There were militants who were willing to break the law: smashing windows, destroying golf courses, burning buildings," she says.

"There were also non-violent actions that broke the law - refusing to fill in the census, refusing to pay tax without representation - a range of creative tactics.

"But just to stand on a box in the marketplace, as many women did, provoked public fury, peltings with rotten vegetables and even police brutality.

"To be a female suffrage activist of any kind was a militant act."

Om Hear now the hym, of Sri Guru Gita

This sung is sang to Bhagavan Shiva

It's melody is plain and terse;

Sri Guru Paramatma is it's God

Its words of power are "Ham" and Sah";

Sri Guru's Prasada may be won; chant this day this song of love

"Ham and "Sah" are symbols of the Guru's eyes. He is the source of the universe, by his will He appears in living form on earth lifting up the hearts of all

Free of bonds, He is everywhere eternally deathless spirit, God divine 

Everywhere He is manifesting as the world: On His feet one's mind should rest.

I sing this song to win the gift of love, Along with Liberation.

1.Parvathi came to serve her Lord Shiva, seated on a beautiful Mount Kailas; With deep devotion she bowed Her head, In reverent voice she said;

2. I surrender to Thee, O adorable Lord, Supreme teacher of the Universe Eternally pure, O highest God, Please teach me of the Satguru.

3. Shiva spoke to Goddess Parvathi. "Thou art That,' it has been proclaimed; No one's ever asked this boon but Thee, But I'll give it to everyone.

4. I am revealing, O beautiful one The mystery of the universe; God is not different from the Satguru, In Truth they're always One.

5. Penance, vows and sacrifice, Pilgrimages and charity leave the seeker in ignorance, Who knows not the Guru's worth.

6. The Guru is verily consciousness, there is no doubt He is absolute; Thus a wise man who seeks the truth, Will find it in his Satguru.

7.  Because of doubt and ignorance Truth is hidden from the scattered mind; Guru removes it with His light; The Divine Mother is revealed. 

8. When a devotee serves at his masters feet,

 All his sins will be washed away; His peaceful mind will  reflect the Self;  In Love I disclose to Thee.

9.Drink the water from Guru's feet, Take the prasad which He leaves for Thee; Repeat His mantram reverently, Meditate On His form Divine.

Salutations I offer Him.

11. On His form meditate all day; Sing in thy heart his Holy name;

Follow His teachings carefully;

Let the mind ever rest on Him.

12. Supreme knowledge from Guru's lips,

Can be realized through His grace alone;

As a wife keeps His husband there.

Let go of status, success and fame;

In each situation in which you are placed,

Remember the Guru's name.

know the wisdom of the Satguru; 

But serve Him with purest love

His knowledge will bloom in Thee.

15. The syllable "Gu" represents darkness;

The syllable "Ru" stands for radiant light;

There is no doubt Guru is the Lord;

He dispels darkness with His Light.

16. "Gu" is illusory changing world;

That which appears to be real to men "Ru" is the Supreme Consciousness,

Ever free from maya's veil.

17. With unshaking faith the wise men say,

Everything He could possible use,

The aspirant  should offer Him.

Salutation to the Satguru.

Veiled by clouds of ignorance,

Guru makes Him see again.

Thou art my brother, Thou art my friend;

Thou art my knowledge, Though art my wealth;

My light of lights Thou art.

Those who claim to. know Him not;

Nothing else but He exists;

Salutations to the Satguru.

To one with the eye of discrimination;

A blind man's eyes cannot see the sun 

So is His glory hid.

30. To meditate on the Guru's form, is to meditate on the ever pure;

To chant with devotion the Guru's name 

is to chant Lord Chiva's name.

31. A speck  of dust from Master's feet,

Forms a bridge o'er the sea of change;

All our delusions can be undone;

Worship Him in everyone.

Ignoring wealth, His eyes are fixed, 

ever on the final goal.

It showers compassion and grace on all;

Permeated by the bliss of consciousness,

May His glance enlighten me.

34. The word "guru" is the best mantram,

As pure as the gold refined by fire,

Tested fully in reason's flame

Forever protects us from death.

He is within and without as well; 

He resides in the hearts of all.

36. I am stainless and totally pure,

Before the stars and galaxies;

Even before creation of life,

Blissful and imperishable

37. Always remember the Satguru;

Knowledge dawns through His gracious light;

Through the scriptures or inference

Or Through one's experience.

38. O Parvathi, to Thee I speak

This theme on which though should reflect;

Thy heart is pure, Thy mind serene,

So the Truth shall dawn in Thee.

39. The crest-jewel's of all scriptures,

Serve but to decorate the Guru's feet He is the sun with His rays of light,

The two-eyed, two armed Lord of peace;

In the Lotus of the mind He dwells,

Giving fearlessness to everyone

58.  Service To the Guru brings highest joy;

Service to the Guru brings highest joy!

This is the word of Lord Shiva;

This what Lord Shiva says!

59. When one meditates on his Satguru,

Knowledge comes to him naturally;

One becomes aware of his own freedom;

Through the grace of the Satguru.

60. Purify the thoughts within Thy mind;

By following the path which the Guru shows;

Free your mind of all desires;

Get released from the senses grasp.

61. The essence  is the object to know;

What perceives is subjective mind;

Understand the essence of knower and known;

Unlock liberation's door.

62. Amongst the Scripture's weighty words

None is as mighty as the word "Guru"

It's holy power is surpassed by none;

It awakens the highest state.

63. One who serves his Guru faithfully,

Though unaware of scriptures laws, 

He is truly a Sanyasin

Orange robes are not the sign

So the Guru imparts His Truth

Through his Grace we become Aware

of the nameless formless One.

65. Prostrations  to Sat Chid Ananda,

Without distinctions the One Supreme

He abides in his own true self

Ever lasting perfect and whole

66. Beyond the beyond he is the highest One;

Eternal bestower of happiness;

He lives in the center of your heart.

Like a crystal pure and bright

67. The pure mind reflects it's own image,

Like a mirror that is straight and clean;

Consciousness and bliss are our own True Self,

Shinning deep within.

68.Unite with all the universe, 

by knowing that which is the source;

Nothing else can compare to this

Everything else is unreal.

69. After Knowing one's own True Self,

Which is unveiled through the Guru's grace

Attachments and desires fall away

in his own peace men is free.

70. Enjoy everything that comes to you, 

whether is great, small or nothing at all;

Accept it All with a tranquil mind.

Free from anxiety.

71. After Knowing what can be known,

At once-bound soul can become divine;

It does not matter where he may be;

His heart will rest in peace.

72. Now Parvathi, You've been shown the way;

The Guru's words Thou must obey;

Devotion, dedication, and meditation,

lead a man to Salvation.

73. I have revealed the Truth to Thee;

It is contained in this song;

Repeat it daily with reverence

Overcome All worldliness

74. Infinite treasures will be obtained,

Through repeating this song of love;

All obstacles will be overcome;

Deprivations will end for Thee.

75. It helps eradicate all disease

It opens to success and wealth;

All can be captivated by your charm,

if you sing this sacred song.

76. Sing this song with one pointedness,

While seated on a mat of grass,

Or if this is not available a folded blanket is fine.

77. This mantram destroys all our bondages,

And helps one to realize his own true freedom;

Thus one becomes the king of kings,

and verily the light of lights.

78. All virtues manifest in Thee,

Powers of speech will be granted too;

Undesired karmas will be erased;

Thy capacity to serve will grow.

79. Health, thy birthright, will be renewed,

with prosperity, peace and happiness;

sing this song with desireless;

realize that you are free.

80. All benefits from this Guru's Hymn,

No matter what faith, color, caste or creed;

The Truth is the same however told;

Serve the Guru in everyone.

81. Sing this song in a peaceful place,

Free from distracting disturbances,

Where the sea laps against the shore,

Near a river or temple pure

82. Worldly desires will be washed away;

From Maya's traps thou will be freed;

to cut the bonds of birth and death,

Bathe Thyself in this Guru's song.

83. The gods reside where the Guru Lives;

A heaven on earth is manifest;

They are his constant company,

Near his residence they abide.

84. Whether standing, sitting or reclining

Awake, asleep or in a car;

However one may move around,

sing this sacred Guru song

85. Sing this love song reverently,

With sincerity and regularity

All that know thee wilt be blest;

You never need to be reborn.

86. The limited expands to unlimited,

Like the river flows into the sea;

Milk is the same in a jar or cup;

Man and God are Forever One.

87. The wise man knows equanimity,

Unaffected by night or day;

It matter not what work he does,

His mind is always calm.

88. Within himself, he rests in bliss,

The state of supreme Consciousness;

With dedication and devotion too,

He ceaselessly serves the Lord.

89. There is no prayer that can compare,

To the prayer that I give to Thee;

This is true; This is verily true!

There is no higher doctrine known.

90. The Guru is absolute, Supreme God.

The highest penance is faith in Him,

In His teachings and service too;

Guru is the highest Truth.

91. Blessed are all the relatives,

Blessed are the ancestors,

Of one who serves the Satguru;

Such a soul is rare indeed.

92. The Guru is beyond a doubt,

Our body, senses and breath of life:

Our father, mother and loved ones too;

He is our eternal Wealth.

93. When one satisfies the Satguru

All God's grace is easily won;

Scores of lifetimes sacrifice,

Yield their fruits  when He is pleased.

94. Through austerities and disciplines,

One may gain some  strength and power:

But such a one is unfortunate

Who serves not the Satguru.

95. To the Satguru's Lotus feet,

Make Thy purest pilgrimage;

The sacred temples and holy lands,

Are contained in Him.

96. Victory over death is won,

By him who sings this sacred song;

He will accomplish all his works,

Salvation he will attain.

97. Please share this song which I offer Thee,

With those who seek the Eternal Truth,

To those who are pure of heart and mind,

Those who have sincerity.

98. This song of Lord Shiva to Parvathi,

Reminds us where our every thought should be;

I offer this to Thee, O adorable lord,

Thy Grace is my hearts reward;

Thy Presence is my heart's reward.

Om Shaanti, Shaanti, Shaanti

2) I bow down to the Blissful mother of the Universe (Shree Shree Anandamayee); again and yet again do I bow down to her. whose mysterious life (literally the truth about whom) is beyond the comprehension of human beings: and who, though living always without any break in the bliss of Brahman, moves about free, for the good of the downcast, as a veritable mother, full of infinite patience and infinite readiness to pardon transgressions.
3) I bow down to the Blissful Mother of the Universe (Shree Shree Anandamayee) again and yet again do I bow to her, whose mercy is my only hope: who, in her infinite graciousness, manifests herself even in minds prone to evil thoughts and fills them with ecstasy; and utter surrender to whom, together with all near and dear ones, is the only duty of sensible men.

From Whence do you come?

And Where do you go?

The moon has set but the sun has not yet risen.

In the chaos of darkness before the dawn

Seeking the light

I advance

To dispel the dark clouds from my mind

To find a great tree unbowed by the tempest

I emerge from the earth.

Mr. Ikeda says of his children’s stories: “It is my earnest wish that my works not only serve to create in children the awareness that their lives are infinitely precious, but that the stories also act as a springboard to enable them to cultivate ‘wings of courage and hope.’”

Renewal of the Ancestral Word

Principles of Life:

On December 12, 2015, in the eco-village Varsana Jardínes Ecológicos, located on Via Granada, Cundinamarca, we presented the spoken law of the Great Spirit to mankind, in which we announce the rules and regulations of the origin and the way of life. Thus, through this document, we renew the ancient word to fulfill this agreement.
This word was placed on white paper after the Hoska ceremony ended: “word prayer breath of life from the tobacco”. The ceremony took place during the meeting of Indigenous Spiritual Authorities, Kiva Ceremony and Roots of the Earth, who came to South America from the north to fulfill the prophecy of the union of the peoples. This is what dawned:
The ancestral peoples here gathered: Nadda, Panches, Misak, Kogui, Wiwa, Uwa, Yana-cona, Cofan, Embera Chami, Huitoto, Quimbaya, Mhuisqa Chibcha, Wirrarikas, Vaisnava, Maya Chontal, Maya Quinche, Apache, Quechua, and native mestizos, want to announce to all mankind that we all have a common origin and that common origin is the mind: the mind of the Great Spirit, from which everything originates. Thus, it is our duty to place our mind in communion with the source, remembering that we came here to live from and for her.

Today we are reborn in the following nine breaths of life:

1. We recognize our Mother-Father Creators as our Law of Origin, who are manifested and expressed in the natural order and thus we declare ourselves: the United Nations of the Spirit.
2. We propose a way to educate real human beings based on our WAYS OF LIFE.
3. We invite human beings, who have forgotten their ancestral memory, to come and drink from this fountain of ancient wisdom.
4. We believe that all nature (elemental spirits, minerals, animals, plants, forests, rivers, mountains, humans, planets, stars, and the invisible) are not resources. They are our family, and therefore it is essential to live together in harmony.
5. We declare that interculturality and an exchange of knowledge encourages recognition of our common humanity, respect of our differences, and development of common agreements based on the Law of Origin of each of the ancestral peoples.
6. We declare that our spirituality is not a form of exotic religion, but a way of life in agreement with all beings, nature and the Universe.
7. We recognize the divine universal mother in woman, but in her, we do not recognize the model of transient beauty, which originates the idea that we can own and control the world.
8. We are fulfilling the dream of our ancestors. Our ancient peoples have the silence to know how to listen and the word to know how to speak and propose. This is an educational proposal, which is urgent for humanity, which puts the BEING in the center and the coexistence in harmony with all the visible and invisible beings. So, with the foundations of ancient tradition, stands a new old united humanity in the nine corners of the world.
9. We announce our government system to be the COSMOGEOCRACY. The order and the government of the cosmos is linked to the order and government of the Earth, where everything is interconnected; to accomplish this, we must extend, share and prepare the land, so the seed of the human heart germinates and thrives.
This is the unreleased word from the native peoples of the north, east, west and south. A new-old word- order which was asleep; a word – order reborn for humanity in all the directions. This word -order- had to be fulfilled from the beginning of the universe, guided by the elders, the guardians of that knowledge. The word of the breath of life of the sacred tobacco medicine represents this birth, through which the pollen of ancient memory is awakened. This word of the breath that creates the seed pulp that is transformed in all the kingdoms, in all the elemental spirits, humans, planets, stars and the invisible.
Through the word that comes from the heart, each nation surrendered the ideas and beliefs that did not allow them to see clearly. Everyone allowed themselves to give up individually and collectively what dwelt in them as parasites and weevil, everything that obstructed the reconnection with the original conscious. Through the preparation of the amilra (ancestral ceremony performed with tobacco leafs), it purifies everything that prevents us from seeing clearly. The contemporary human being had lost the ambil stick and the ambil (the spirit of the word), so he remained asleep in the flow of illusion in a world of appearances, forgetting the original law that has now been recovered.
We are the announced prophecies of the peoples and nations around the world, in compliance with the birth of a new humanity, a new ancient culture, where every nation is responsible for its natural norms and its law of origin. We must all return to the mind of the great creative spirit and from there multiply this story of origin, and from there announce that there is a path for the human seed that we are, the seed of the Creator from the beginning.
We now return to the path of the natural BEING, considering and respecting that each native nation prepared the path for cultivating the human seed. Today we are restored in the CosmoGeoCracy, so that the human seed germinates and thrives to become Naturagentes, guardians and custodians of life.
The native people propose to follow the steps that the ancient peoples left us. Even before conception, during gestation and in the vital cycle of labor, the being is connected to the natural order; otherwise it is not possible to be human without understanding this order. It is our duty to live in communion and in community, from the mystery of creation. We are all more than what is manifested; this includes all of nature, since there is a higher mind (God), the essence to which we unite to become community. Therefore, we propose an agreement to return to the wisdom of origin that allows us to be one with everything and everyone.
We, the ancient peoples, offer a cultural agreement: the agreement between ancient wisdom of naturalhumanization and the artificial technological world. We intend to generate a synthesis between what was brought in 1492 and what we have had here since the beginning, to generate a new old order, to allow the path of existence. We understand that the modern world has taken life and caught existence, that is why we propose a path that orders existence. In other words for all humans to have the possibility to walk the walk of existence of who we truly are, for we are not the body and yet we are the body. To walk allowing everyone to become explorers of this mystery, returning from the origin to remember who we really are and adjust our lives to allow everyone to exist. This is what we, the ancient peoples, mestizos, white and native-mestizos gather here today propose.
This continent is basically mestizo and we return to our heritage and memory of the native mother and the land (native-mestizo) to generate a synthesis. We DO NOT deny the western world, we propose an agreement: an agreement to return to be Naturagentes.
We declare ourselves to be the communities of the United Nations of the Spirit of the Naturagente.
