The smoking of marijuana initiates many processes in the body, mind and even soul, depending upon the intent with which it is used. In Part 1 many of these were mentioned in passing, and will be explored in some detail in this issue. It is very important for people to understand that marijuana, like other teacher plants, is properly called an “entheogen” or “agent in God’, as a psychoactive substance with spiritual properties. This may surprise most smokers to hear, but it is true nonetheless.… Continue

Few natural food sources have withered as much confusion, controversy and misinformation (and lack of information) as hemp – which is unfortunate, and even ironic, given that it is one of the world’s most perfect foods.
Actually, it goes far beyond food, as this super-plant has also been used for centuries as a wonderful source of fibers for clothing and accessories, soaps and oils, and much more. It's even rumored to be the world's "oldest food" consumed by modern man.
But even… Continue

I freely confess that, until quite recently, I had never heard of Anton LaVey and was only dimly aware of Aleister Crowley. I’m now making good this gap in my knowledge, as I always do in these cases, with some rapid reading, and boy can I rapidly read!
I’ve begun with Crowley, rushing through Roger Hutchison’s biography Aleister Crowley: The Beast Demystified
. Here is one little episode from his early life that caught my attention.… Continue

I’m Cancer, a water sign, so I would have assumed that my elemental would have been a nymph or an ondine, but it’s not, oh, no, it’s not. I seem to be possessed by a spirit of fire, a salamander. I burn up in every sense, intellectually, emotionally and sexually. I simply can’t rest or stay still. There is sometimes water enough to quench the passion, but mostly it just burns free and unrestrained.…

I love being Female
Yes, I do; I always have. There are so many things, so many dimensions to my character, new discoveries I am constantly making. I love to explore my sexuality, to observe the impact it has on people around me. I’m really clever, a little like a spider-queen, and could easily devour any male that ventured on to my web. But for the most part, I don’t, unless the guy is really stupid.
I used to define myself as a… Continue

Friday the Thirteenth brings in its wake some ancient fears and superstitions. Ancient? Well, actually, no, they are not. Would it surprise you to learn that the idea that the combination of this particular day and this particular date is unlucky goes no further back than a hundred years ago? It does, yes, it does.
Friday itself has long been considered to be unlucky, chiefly because it was the day on which Jesus was crucified, and because… Continue

I am a witch because, in the words of the song, a witch is what I am; it is what I was born to be. I am a witch first, and I am a witch last. It has nothing to do with a non-existent goddess and everything to do with me.
Witchcraft is a unique and wonderful art, one in which I truly found myself, truly discovered who I was and what I was meant to be. It is freedom; it is purity; it is power. It is beauty, beauty in life, beauty in nature,… Continue

Persephone, the daughter of Demeter, the Greek goddess of fertility, was obliged to stay in Underworld for part of the year as the wife of the god, Hades, after she ate six pomegranate seeds. To forget her grief, Demeter went into hibernation, bringing on the winter. To aid her sleep she ate poppies. The poppy plant then became one of her symbols, often depicted alongside corn. So, it might be said, winter is a sleep induced by the power of opium.… Continue

Let me tell you a tale of a tail; that of the Lambton Worm, the most famous of all of the English dragons! This monster was to be found close to Lambton Castle in County Durham, in the north of the country.
According to the story the heir of Lambton was out fishing on the River Wear on a Sunday-cursed be he!-, catching a small newt, which he threw into a well. There it grew and grew, becoming too big for its lair in the Worm Well. It took… Continue

I’ve long had a fascination with Manichaeism, in particular, and Gnosticism in general, ever since I read about the Albigensian Crusade against the Cathars, a variation of the two.
Mani, the founder of the religion, grew up in Babylon, then part of the Persian Empire, in the third century AD. He was a member of a Jewish sect known as Elchasaites, also known as the katharei
or the ‘pure ones.’ After a series of divine revelations he… Continue

Hey, don't worry, honey! The lemming-like belief that the world, or human civilization, or whatever, has a definite and precise conclusion has been with us for two thousand years or more. To begin with the focus was on the Second Coming; latterly it’s been on all sorts of New Age speculation, usually based on the Mayan Calendar or Nostradamus or similar rubbish.
I know for a certainty that the world is going to end; our world is going to end. I can’t say when, I can’t say how; but it… Continue

Nietzsche once wrote that philosophy is just another form of auto-biography, or words to that effect. This is also true, I suspect, of literature, though some perhaps more than others. I’m thinking specifically of the work of H. P. Lovecraft, which reveals, intentionally or not, so much about him.
Do you know anything of his life, that strange, horribly claustrophobic existence he led with his aunts and his mother, above all, his mother, in… Continue

I love Pan, the great horned-god; he represents to me the generative force in nature, all that is exciting; all that is enhancing; all that is dangerous!
I remember reading an adaptation of Robert Grave’s The Myths and Legends of Greece and Rome
when I was very young. These stories depicted a fascinating world; a world of flawed but endearing deities, so different from the Christian tradition in which I was growing up. The saddest… Continue

A REBEL REFUSES TO BE ENSLAVED IN ANY WAY -- NOT EVEN BY GOD... by man is out of the question.
Friedrich Nietzsche's statement that, "GOD IS DEAD AND NOW MAN IS ABSOLUTELY FREE," is a statement of a REBELLIOUS soul. His argument is clear. In another place he says that, "Man and God cannot coexist, because God will exist only with God as the creator and man as the created. And we cannot tolerate this indignity, this insult. Hence we… Continue

Well, first of all, on a point of general information, Maniel, the swastika is not universally forbidden or unwelcome; one can find it depicted and used as a sacred symbol right across Asia. Its use in Europe is, however, problematic because of past political associations, and I cannot see the ban in Germany and Austria being lifted any day soon. It is not, incidentally, banned in England. When the Germans tried to introduce a ban throughout the European Union in 2007 the move was opposed both… Continue

Leading and Learning Life
A human being should take an interest in what he is living for.
The biggest problem which can be seen nowadays in the world of human beings, is that most human beings do not try to know why they are living and what they should have to live for in their lives.
We should see this as the result of human beings having abandoned themselves for greed and ignorance for a long time.
Our life and the result of our life that we wish for is being ignored for… Continue

This should probably be taped
to your bathroom mirror
where one could read it every day.
You may not realize it,
but it's 100% true.
1. There are at least two people in this world
that you would die for.
2. At least 15 people in this world
love you in some way.
3. The only reason anyone would ever hate you
is because they want to be just like you.
4. A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone,
even if they don't like… Continue
