Spirituality: Somber Business…

For all those folks out there that reject ‘Organized Religion‘ in favor of ‘Spirituality‘, I gotta ask:  Why is it always Somber business?  I mean, religion-forbid if there’s laughter or silliness.  You people drive me insane with your depressing shit!

Get off your Uppity High-Horse and abandon your delusions already.  You’re just trading terms but you really mean the exact same thing!  You want your ‘Spirituality’ just as organized as Orthodox Religions!  One can express matters of Spirit in many ways, and it still be authentic.  I enjoy laughter, and awe and wonderment can make one smile; it’s not always somber depressing teary-eyed misery.   You can be spiritual while laughing your ass off.

For all you folks that believe in many gods, you don’t think these god-forms have a sense of humor?  Promote laughter?  I bet even Durga and Hecate enjoy a good joke now and again!

I’m guessing it’s a matter of vying for public acceptance, approval and recognition all while living in your proverbial broom-closets!  It’s the 21st century for crying out loud!  You no sooner need state/federal recognition than you do of BIlly Bob down the street.    If you want to hug a tree, hug the damn thing.  If you want to dance around in a circle, do it!  If you want to gather a bunch of people, wear funny costumes and play masters of the universe – go for it!


Do you people ever let-loose while being Spiritual?

Are you Spiritual because you’re living or living to be Spiritual?

Is your Spirituality only in practice when shit happens?

Do you ever just express your absolute joy with being alive and all the awesome stuff we have to enjoy?

Living the code


Each person sets their own code by which they live by.  The trouble usually starts when the rest of the world doesn’t adhere to it.

Living by the code can often be a source of frustration and rebellion.  It may lead one to rebel, for rebellion’s sake.  It’s in the code.  This is when pride becomes counter-productive, but especially if the person that suffers the most is YOU.

You can become an angry and bitter person if you cannot or rather will not accept the nature of our species.

The condition of being human is that we are flawed.  We often have flawed reasoning, logic and the bi-product is irrationality and emotionality.

Living by the code may be the source of your own alienation, alien among the species simply because you view the world from behind Lucifer’s Lens.

“The green reed which bends in the wind is stronger than the mighty oak which breaks in a storm.” – Confucius

Will you become Jaded, or will you bend like the reed?

In order to spiral upward, we must first spiral inward.  Self-reflection is the mirror that we care most to avoid, isn’t it?  

Why is it so difficult to see ourselves for what we are?

Are we ashamed of our condition?  Are we to deny our nature and thus pretend we are not the ravenous creature staring back?

We each have needs, and wants; we are starved for them.  Do we really want the misery of our daily toils?  To be free of our mortal coil?

Then why, I ask...Do we spend so much time seeking it?

Why can’t we see ourselves in the moment, the very instance that we set it in motion and step back to prevent our demise?

Causality, in our complete totality.

Instead we seem to prefer fuel the flame that burns within our very souls charring us to brimstone and ash.  How delicious the taste of iron in our mouths must be!  It must be, instead of the pleasures of the ambrosia meant for gods!

Tell the tall tales of your pain, rather than gazing into the mirror to see the path behind you.  What rolls ahead is certainly within your power; however the Will of the true self is shackled within a dream.

Oh we beautiful dreamers!

Be honest with yourself for once in your miserable lives and admit that it’s easier to imagine it than it is to accomplish it!

The code by which you live is just another rigid dogma to hold in your hand like a rod you stir the embers with.

By rod and by staff, live by it…But don’t presume to think that you are fooling, you are living the Fool.

You want others to adhere to your code,

you need it.

You try to live with honor and the code guides you,

even if it’s into utter oblivion!

You stand at the event horizon,

Living the code.

The Smoking Ring…The Truth about Djinn

THE DJINN… and the Smoking Ring

Jana/JaNaA, (pronounced Yanna) means ‘Hidden Paradise‘, or in some contexts ‘Hidden Fruit‘.  It’s a popular female name, but especially because of the Hebrew context ‘The Lord has been gracious…‘   It’s the root of the term ‘Geenie’, first written in 1001 Arabian Nights.  Otherwise, known as Djin/Jinn.

Ancient oppression and guilt and tantalizer of the imagination!  This hidden genius was thought to stem from themes from Ancient Sumer, where the sky kisses the ocean to bring forth the dominion of the gods.  The mythos cycles of Sumer were changed , corrupted and brought into the dominion of Kings.  This knowledge was thus buried from the common man, and reserved for an elite class of philosophers, poets and rulers (Occultists). This type of esoteric knowledge was brought into the exoteric by giving it ‘spirit’ rather than the essence tapped by elevating levels of awareness and consciousness.  Stories of spirits that roamed the earth were used to keep the people complacent and fearful.

EVIL.  These spirits would corrupt man with knowledge thought to bring him away from the gods, vs. closer to the ascension it would require to empower man with a strong sense of self and connectedness to ALL.

Why are some Djinn Blue?

If you pay attention to common themes, ‘blue’ is used as an indicator for a specific type of knowledge.  The Hindus had Vishnu, the Yezedi  Malek Taus, the beautiful blue peacock angel, and the Romans had Lucifer, the blue star illumination, the goddess Diana was sometimes called ‘Jana’. These are just a few examples, but the theme is similar, fighting the ‘good’ fight illuminated with a blue essence.

By the time this lore is brought into the new religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, it is demonized as an EVIL that man should fear.

Oh the Irony!

The Greeks brought forth the muses by drinking wine, and people in the East by smoke.  Smoking various substances was thought to bring forth the Djinn, and treated as a cultural taboo which later imbued with the knowledge of the Dragon.  This is why the phrase ‘chasing the dragon‘ is used when smoking opiates.  It’s by no coincidence that it correlates to Astronomical events.

Beware of Polaris and the flaming pearl! For if the Dragon eats the pearl, he will have the knowledge!

But most of all… Beware of the Smoking Ring!

Ebay Scam: Finding the Smoking Ring

Don’t be fooled!

Get the facts straight about the Djinn!

Here’s How:

  1. Cut out the striker portion of a matchbox from a box of safety matches. Trim off any paper around the striker.
  2. Fold the striker in half, striker-sides facing each other.
  3. Set the folded striker on top of the running cold water faucet or a refrigerated metal pan.
  4. Use a lighter to set fire to the striker. Ignite both ends. Then run the lighter along the length of the folded striker. It won’t burn to ash, which is fine.
  5. Discard the burned striker.
  6. You will see a brown residue that has been deposited along the top of the faucet or metal pan. Run your fingertip along the residue to pick it up.
  7. Slowly rub your finger and thumb together. If you do this in the dark, your fingers will have a greenish glow. Very, very cool.


  1. Wash your hands after doing this, and try to avoid breathing in the smoke. The trick probably involves white phosphorus, which can be absorbed through your skin and is toxic.
  2. If you don’t have scissors, you can do this trick by tearing off the striker portion of the matchbox with your fingers. It’s just easier to cut out the striker, if you can.
  3. You could use the matches in the matchbox, rather than a lighter, of course.

What You Need

  • matchbox of safety matches
  • cold water faucet or chilled pan
  • scissors
  • lighter
