Yep i havent been there before but the fact i know its there and that a 1,5m guy put it up all by himself makes it pretty intruiging :) plus its a nice story hehe.

 

I think Leedskalnin's knowledge of nature was far beyond normal people yust because he did not blatantly excepted everything science told him .. he figured it out all by himself with he's many little experiments.

Watched Little Miss Sunshine last night.

 

Excellent movie :D

 

spoiler alert, perhaps old movie now

 

The pageant itself was just great. I too was terrified that everyone would just laugh at her. I'd thought that she might be spectacular but the one doing rolls and flips before her ruled that out.

 

And it turned out she was the best one there after all!!!! Great routine :D laughed almost as much as when the cop pulled over the van when the horn was stuck and found...........porn !!!!!

 

DVD had alternate endings, but glad they picked the one they did. Perfect, the family acting together and riding off into the sunset, still breaking the rules, I cried.

 

But the actual beauty contestants, Ick children looking like women??? Can't even look at them without feeling sick, my face screws up thinking about it. How can people do that?

www.rosicrucian.org/podcast

 

 

The AMORC organization for sure is controversial and I do not agree with all aspects of it, but I consider it to be a valid vehicle of some knowledge not easily available elsewhere.

 

The american lodges have a podcast open to non-members, most of them are recorded during their open salons which they hold regularily at Rosicrucian Park. When you get past the cheesy MC introducing the podcasts some of these really can be of some value. At least they were for me.

 

Only too bad that they are not organized in a more effective way (and they should fire the introducer,

I see a bright future for him in TV infomercials)

 

For those of you interested in the use of sound/vibrations check out the vowel sounds in the great pyramid edition. After the initial visualization exercise there is actual recordings of the traditional rosicrucian vowel sounds intonations in the kings Chamber in the great pyramid.

This passed me by for years. Years of reading Tao books and it just appeared in front of me in a book shop, so now I reveal it to you if it has also passed you by.

 

Hua Hu Ching read here

 

It begins...

 

"I reach the Integral Way of uniting with the great and mysterious Tao.

 

My teachings are simple; if you try to make a religion or science of them, they will elude you. Profound yet plain, they contain the entire truth of the universe.

 

Those who wish to know the whole truth take joy in doing the work and service that comes to them. Having completed it, they take joy in cleansing and feeding themselves. Having cared for others and for themselves, they then turn to the master for instruction.

 

This simple path leads to peace, virtue, and abundance."

 

Enjoy! :D
