 Where you a Magdalene too?
picture The heartless of a heartless world
The Magdalene Sisters, written and directed by Peter Mullan
By Joanne Laurier
“Religion is the sign of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world”—Marx

Five years ago in Dublin, Ireland, an order of nuns sold off part of its convent to real estate developers. On that property the remains of 133 women buried in unmarked graves were discovered. It turned out that the women had been incarcerated by the Catholic Church to work as virtual slave laborers in institutions known as Magdalene Asylums.

The asylums were a network of laundries named after Mary Magdalene, who, according to Christian theology, was a prostitute turned devout follower of Christ. The Magdalene Asylums were set up in the 19th century, first as homes to rehabilitate prostitutes and then as industrial orphanages in response to the growth in the number of abandoned children resulting from the devastating Potato Famine of the middle and late 1840s. By the early 20th century, their role was expanded to function as workhouses for women who in a variety of ways had offended the country’s moral code. Run by the Sisters of Mercy in Ireland, the asylums functioned as commercial laundries, financing the order’s operations.

Under pressure from the Church and its archaic mores, families sent daughters who were deemed wayward to the asylums. The girls were brutalized and worked long hours every day but Christmas, for no pay. The choice of work was not accidental. Called “Magdalenes,” or penitents, the inmates were intended to scrub away their sins by scrubbing clean the dirty laundry from orphanages, churches, prisons and local businesses. Many of the women were so broken in spirit and isolated from the outside world that they chose asylum labor over leaving the institutions, some remaining until they died. The Catholic Church in Ireland indentured more than 30,000 women and girls in the Magdalene Asylums. Amazingly, the last one was not closed until 1996.

 Sekhmet and Babalon
picture I love it when my blog comes up in searches like sacred whore scarlet woman that someone was doing in Yahoo the other day! Especially when it gives me tons of references for my own research.

This is from Sekhmet's Own, notes on:
"...the coorespondence between Sekhmet and BABALON (in the Apocalypse of St. John it's Babylon, but for reasons I won't go into right now, I prefer the BABALON spelling).

If you have read that book, then you'll know that John's contact didn't quite have a "Nice" opinion of Her or what she represented. I have my ideas on them, but they are not for this list, at this time at anyrate. The following is an excerpt taken from Robert Master's book:

"There are some important passages dealing with the very great antiquity of Sekhmet in human religions to be found in the monumental work on ancient Egypt written by Gerald Massey, 19th century scholar and trance visionary. Massey identifies Sekhmet as The Great Mother, Mother of Mystery, later denounced in the Book of Revelations as The Great Harlot:

(In Revelation, the mother of mystery is called "Babylon the Great, the mother of harlots and of abominations of the earth," who has the name of mystery written on her forehead (Rev:17:5). But there was an earlier Babylon in Egypt, known to the secret wisdom, which is traditionally identified with the locality of Coptos, nominally the seat of Kep, the Kamite mother of mysteries. The mother of mystery did not originate with the scarlet woman of Babylon (nor as the red hag of the Protestants), although the title of The Great Harlot was applied to her also, who was the mother of harlots and to whom the maiden-tributes were religiously furnished in the city. Hers is a figure of unknown antiquity in the astronomical mythology, which was constellated as the red hippopotamus the preceded The Great Bear. The red hippopotamus (Apt) had already become the scarlet lady in the Ritual. Hence, the Great Mother, as Sekhmet-Bast, who is higher than all the gods, and is the only one who stands above her father, is called The Lady of the Scarlet-Coloured Garment(Rit., ch. 164, Naville). The Kamite Constellation of "the birthplace" may also serve to show why the "great harlot" should have been so badly abused in the Book of Revelation. The creator of the Great Mother was depicted in the sign of the meshen to indicate the place of bringing forth by the cow of heaven whose "thigh" is the emblem of great magical power in the hieroglyphs. The mother of mystery also carries "in her hand a golden cup full of abominations, even the unclean things of her fornications" Gerald Massey, Ancient Egypt. Vol.2, Samuel Weiser, york beach, ME, 1970, p.698. This work was first published in 1907.

Well, there ya have some scholary references to what I was downloaded with at the age of about 9 or 10, but of course, it was in a "different manner".

 Men
picture War of the sexes? Or no real men? A close friend and neighbour showed up on my doorstep last night telling me about her husband who has issues of control over possessions and money. She is doubly more educated but has two very very small children. He holds a 17th century idea of traditional marriage and somehow thinks she should be content with that. He didn't appreciate her not 'being grateful' of their marriage so in the end decided to slam her about -- yes, physically I mean. She had a band-aid on her foot to prove it. Where has my sense of self gone? She mused... and I wonder. I knew about it, as I felt that way after I had my now-two year old. One of my life's work is about healing thru all the elements, through the personal love and pure raw vortex energies that the womb holds... but I digress. Twenty years ago in Glastonbury there was a woman's riot (or so I am told) and a bunch of them started having women's meetings, and then most of them ended up leaving their husbands. From some points of view this wasn't such a good thing in the end. Here we are, more than a generation later, and I see this Amazon energy being held back in several of my peers who have small children. I don't think it's conscious, but there are so many parallel themes about old-world thinkings in Western men about what is failure and success... the Inner Critic that is not one I relate to. For me and many women, Life is a journey, the Great Mystery. I have judgment about the way men are treating women I love. Is this all about Mars? I don't know, but something strange is in the air. Universes seem sliding away and for some reason I feel calm in the storm. I find myself giving advice I feel is 'right' and when I hear myself, I realize I need to take my own. Love is all you need. But true love has to do with courage, wisdom and transparency. Be ye like Children. But not like Angels, as in Philip Pullman's trilogy -- for Angels War. Will Mars walk away quietly or will this balancing of the energies continue to hone us closer and closer to Who We Really Are? Getting back to this Imagineering Concept that Ming and I and our whirling creative shared universes seem to be rethreading, is that we can use any set of philosophies to prove our quantive point. I walk in many worlds and seem to 'see' some basic meanness being justified by men who are not, in fact, being supportive or loving to women who have loved them. This, indeed, feels like war. It doesn't feel like mad insane war. It actually feels like tactical differences. Like, let's make a stand. Lovers unite. The 'spade is spade' story. Don't use flowers and steal the very language you learnt from us, to justify complete cop-outs. One such 'man' used one of the longest compilations of quotes I have ever seen, to try to get to his shared 'audience' with a woman he has very ungracefully broken up with. Why don't we get real here? What -are- we imagining? This is not lunacy, but marsacy. I am sick and disappointed, but again, I have never felt more calm about my own 'truth'. It's not opinion, intuition, instincts, gossip or loose ideas. It's based on experience and in some strange sense, gnosis. This morning I phoned the Somerset police and got the facts about what my local friend should do next time he threatens or hurts her physically. Here we can get practical. With other more insidious abuses, where the split-collective mythos of Her sons whom still wage war on their mothers', projecting her as their lovers they shun and 'divide and conquer'... well, what can I say? I think I've said it.

 The Divine Imagination
picture I used to synchronistically stumble across information from a wide breadth of sources that formed a major hypothesis of mine about this concept, that actually there is no difference between the imagination and visions/ visualisations and The Sight.... however, I have been constant in my resisting of 'cookie-cutter' metaphysical solutions of 'just creating what you want' BS. It is a coolaborative effort. Sophistocated and involving a Dance between all the 'realities' and the players involved... Having said that, I found this come into my in-box today and found it further aid in my quantive labratory:

THE GRAND ILLUSION
By Jon Rappoport
About ten years ago, when I was doing a lot of research on paranormal abilities, I interviewed some test subjects who had shown, in lab studies, a capacity that far exceeded expected averages.

These were people who could influence the distribution of little balls that dropped through a funnel into a case outfitted with pegged compartments where the balls would stop.

These people could receive and interpret messages sent to them from a few miles away.

 Scientific Experts Believe We're in...Fastest Mass Extinction in Earth's History
picture Crisis Poses Major Threat to Human Survival; Public Unaware of Danger.
"Human beings are currently causing the greatest mass extinction of species since the extinction of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. If present trends continue one half of all species on earth will be extinct in 100 years.

A majority of the nation's biologists are convinced that a "mass extinction" of plants and animals is underway that poses a major threat to humans in the next century.

"The speed at which species are being lost is much faster than any we've seen in the past -- including those [extinctions] related to meteor collisions," said Daniel Simberloff, a University of Tennessee ecologist and prominent expert in biological diversity who participated in the museum's survey. [Note: the last mass extinction caused by a meteor collision was that of the dinosaurs, 65 million years ago.]"
The article is a couple years old, but the website is updated currently with countless links and major suggestions for what we can do - basically, spread the word and get involved.

 The death of Dr.David Kelly?
picture How well covered is this huge story about the supposed-suicide of Dr. David Kelly, in the US? So Shakespearian that it makes me shudder...

Here's an interesting bit about mysterious deaths of UK scientists:
"In the 1980’s over two dozen science graduates and experts working for Marconi or Plessey Defence Systems died in mysterious circumstances, most appearing to be ‘suicides.’ The MOD denied these scientists had been involved in classified Star Wars Projects and that the deaths were in any way connected. Judge for yourself..."
So ironic the same week that Blair gets a zillion standing ovations from congress and US 'polls'... he's experiencing the 'biggest political crisis of his career'... !!

See here for more of what the papers say.

 WOMD
picture Cool forward I received yesterday -- and it still works:
"Read this carefully. It's really well done. Try it ASAP, before Google Fixes its site:

1) Go to Google.com

2) type in (but don't hit return): "weapons of mass destruction"

3) Hit the "I'm feeling lucky" button, instead of the normal "Google search"button

4) READ very carefully what appears to be a normal error message

cheers"
