Constantine’s Christianity

12 Jun

As  I write this with some trepidation. because the fact is that i was raised in a christian family.
however my parents were very open minded people. very tolerant even after they learned that i was studying the kabbalah  shamanism, and ritual magic.
but  with  my  relations particularly my father’s side being deep in Catholicisim.
i became ostracized.
despite this i still believed in some of the roots of my  families’ religion. i believed that Wisdom in proverbs is the Feminine Divine. she is linked to Mary. and Lilith her daughter to Mary Magdalene.
i believed what is written in psalm 81. that humanity have the potential of being divine. that jesus himself like buddha, lao tzu, moses. and many other spiritual adepts have reach in their practices.
however most of these men are men. there was no claim of them being literally the son of god. like jesus of nazareth.
one night back in 2008 i watched on discovery channel a program entitled the jesus family tomb. in the program the host and author simcha jacobovici claimed he found the  family tomb of jesus christ.
i was glued to the television as a presented his evidence of his claim. so i purchased the book.
and read it. and was amazed.
the question is do i believe it is true?  the truth is it didn’t matter although i felt a panged of regret and sympathy for my  relations who were christian. it answered some of my questions.
there was always discrepencies when i read the new testament quotations of the old testament about jesus being the messiah.
especially where it quotes about messiah being born to a virgin in isaiah7:14 : “look a virgin is with child. and his name is immanuel”.( the word in hebrew  for virgin in this passage is alamah which is use for a young woman who is married. not betulah which is hebrew for virgin ).
i had also learned that originally christianity was essentialy jewish. and was called a jewish sect. that they believed that the messiah (of joseph)  was a man chosen by God as a spiritual leader.
and later was seen as the son of Wisdom Chokmoth the Shekinah the hebrew goddess
so what caused it to changed?
among  scholars the changed occured around the time of the so-called conversion of emperor constantine.
this conversion took place when he supposedly saw a cross in the sky and heard a voice say conquer with this. when he was  fighting a  civil war in 312ce
however the cross he saw wasn’t the traditional  roman instrument of torture and execution.
it was a large P with an X on the bottom of the p.
what as been silently ignored is that traditionally in the greco-roman world is that large case P is the symbol of Pluto the roman god of the underworld whom is refered to as hades in greek mythology.
and it is interesting to note that Constantine didn’t give up his pagan beliefs.
some  of the statues he erected in his reign was pagan. especially that of Apollo. with his features on the god.
in 325ce he created the council of Nicaea to settle a dispute between christian sects. but instead he founded the church of Rome. and created the doctrine that forever created jesus of nazareth as the son of god. the reason he did this was to keep the roman tradition of emperor worship; the emperor as a god as created by Julius Caeaser back in 42 bce. which lead to his death in the ides of march.
it is no surprise since some of those sects believed in Sophia the goddess of wisdom
it is known that the Roman empire was largely a patriarchal society. who focus on the gods like jupiter (zeus) and mars (ares). however the goddess survived. she first survived as Wisdom or the Shekinah in the ancient jewish religion. then as Mary the mother of jesus.
and her daughter Lilith  first as Proserpina in the roman pagan religions; later as Sophia Zoe and as Mary Magdalene.
As for Christianity. after the fall of the roman empire. it became a Power in the western world. ruling over the nations that came out of the roman empire. wars broke out among the  nations, famine, pestilence followed. the time called the dark ages set in. then the burning times.
and unknown among the inquistors the priests who accused people of being in league with Satan. unknown  to them their religion is based on a lie.
people who practice their folk customs of healing and wisdom. their church was hiding a dark secret: their religion was created by an emperor who used a jewish sect’s beliefs to institutionalized and established a foundation for his rule.

mermaids

10 Jun

i was watching on animal planet mermaids: the body found.
they tell the theory of the aquatic ape theory.
i wont go into details about the television program.
as a a student of shamanism. i believe in the existence of mermaids.
but i believe there are two kinds;  if what i seen on animal planet is true. (and it’s possible).
there are the traditional mermaids. we know them as part of the race of spiritual beings called the Fae. in the middle east they are refered to as the Djinn.
these beings existed long before us on the earth..
the other mermaids are a branch of the human race called homo aquaticis meris.
the Fae  befriended them.
this is what i believe.
