ABOUT THE WORD "GOD." Many years ago, in an effort to make some sense out of religion, I decided to track down the word "God" to its source, to find out what it really meant. I finally tracked it to ancient Kashmir and the Turkic nations of Central Asia. "Khod" or "God" meant "The Vulva." Its connotation was the "Source of All Life." The

Recently, a Mexican man from Michoacan, Mexico, told me that he knew of a small village in his state, where all the inhabitants of the village meet the sun at dawn every day. He said that it is a prosperous, extremely peaceful and friendly place. Gene

Diana, those of us who have discovered that the sun does more than keep us warm and make crops grow are often called "unscientific" and "superstitious." However, the fact that the sun can actually influence and govern human behavior is one hundred percent scientific. When a scientific researcher publishes a hypothesis about some phenomenon he may have experimented with, others

Shirley, I agree with you completely about female energy. Lately, I have been struggling to understand the true meaning of "Mother Goddess," and the true significance of the Virgin Mary. I am friends with a well-known Hindu mystic and devotee to the Mother Goddess, a man named Subash Bose. This man is really unique in my opinion, From the very start of our friendship, he insisted that C

Raja, I really meant to say that the United Nations should demand the "sun medical treatment" of all opposing armies before they start shedding blood. Needless to say, this isn't so. Gene

Dear Raja, as the Turkish author Cetin Goksu said, "We must establish a philosophy based on the essence of the sun." The following is what could happen if the world community embraced such a philosophy: Two nations plan to go to war against each other." Letting the sun be their true leader and guide, the United Nations requires that all armies planning war aginst each other must wa

Diana, since I discovered that I can free myself of negative emotions by watching the sun rise every morning, I'm afraid to miss even one day of not seeing it. Perhaps there is some element in the visible spectrum that influences humans this way. Man has been able to replicate ultra-violet, infra-red, etc. If he could produce the "whatever it is" that renews and strengthens Man's mind a

David, I've discovered that if one will also watch the sun go down about 20 minutes before it sets and 20 minutes afterwards, the effects seem to be enhanced the next day. Gene

Nolondil, when I was shopping around for books about the sun, I came upon one really promising E-Book written by a Turkish engineer. Cetin Goksu, whom I presume is a Sufi. Although I don't speak Turkish, I am fluent in Spanish. A Spanish woman had translated it. The cost was $5.00. However, I had to pay $45.00 to get the funds deposited in his bank account. Mr. Goksu apologized, saying had he kno

Lothario, if the sun is not God, it is most certainly His mouth, which is tantamount to the same thing, for the mouth is part of the whole body. What I like about the one hundred percent reliability of the sun is that it makes religion scientific. Instead of having someone brainwash us with lies about the infinite, we can prove that there is a force that can turn us humans into better persons. No

Kimberly, thanks for your extremely interesting posting. I don't know whether you've ever heard of the 16 century Dominican priest, Giordano Bruno. He was burned alive by the Inquisition for his devotion to the sun and a few other things. However, the Inquisition regretted having killed him the next day. He said that whenever mankind sinks to his lowest ebb, he has no other recourse but to return

Hi, everyone! My name is Gene D. Matlock. Several years ago, I was a regular contributor to GH Website, but I dropped out for a while. However, something powerful has happened in my life, which I want to share with you. Back in 2004, my beloved and excellent second wife of nearly thirty years, Consuelo, a pure-of-heart Mexican country woman, died in agony of a horrible affliction called vasculit

Dear Kimberly, perhaps, if people could see that beliefs are just specters, and not real, mankind would someday find a way to keep them from having such a stranglehold on his soul. I'm confident that if the schools would train people to stack their beliefs on one side of them, and stack truths on the other side, they'd get a better perspective on life. They'd surely see that the stack of beliefs

Janey, it is so difficult to know what truth is! So many horrible things happen on earth, but mankind is still too ignorant to keep them from happening. Until we make education a priority in our lives, there's really not much that we can do. Also, while we must always consider other people's ideas, we must not allow ourselves to be swayed by them either. For example, it seems that many people wa

Joseph, I agree with you in nearly everything that you said. And I am active. But my lifetime hobbies and pastimes, however, have been exactly the topics that frustrate me on these message boards, especially the one about politics and current events - the peculiar way mankind tries to solve his problems by just getting into more trouble. What those people who claim to hate Bush and the United St

Anne-Marie, like you, I, too, hate to be classified. Of course, for our own safety, we do have to classify murderers, thieves, and other such individuals. But other than that necessity, it is tragic to place people in definite slots. Gene

Dear Martin, I know your mind runs in other channels because I've communicated with you over here, on the "human" side. However, if politics and such are your game, let me tell you what I learned about it, just in case you really and honestly think political solutions can ever bring peace and happiness to mankind.

Janey, my wife's cousin Guadalupe Iniguez, who lives on our street, has to drive from here in the California High Desert every morning to her job "down below" in San Bernardino which is thirty plus miles from here. She gets up about 5:00 A.M. and is on her way to San Bernardino by 6:00. Not being educated, she works at an uninspiring dead-end job. After she gets off work, she comes up h

Jameske, this is one of the death traps set by man's curious will to believe, that I never did even consider until you brought it up today. A typical example is religious quotes. I myself do this all the time. Another variation on this same order is famous sayings, such as "Absence makes the heart grow fonder." And then we have another: "When the cat's away, the mice will play.&quo

Hi, Everybody: Since it looks as if I'm reaching the limits of the thread I started about how beliefs and belief systems solidify and enhance the ego, causing it to surround the mind in a self-limiting bird cage, I would like to make some suggestions for diverting the mind from the cares and tragedies of daily living in this topsy-turvy world. I suppose some mystic would encourage us to sit down

Cleo, I forgot to answer your question about my reasons for turning this retirement commmunity into one that admitted children and minorities. I've told this story before on this website, hut I'll tell it again. These reasons are important to me in any order. One, two, three don't tell the real story. 1. I just wanted to make money. 2.

Cleo, my isolation from my children is more or less comon when parents get divorced. The mother always has the greatest influence over the children. Therefore, they resent me for having left her and marrying another woman. Also, the mother, though a Costa Rican, told my children that the reason they were not full-blooded Americans is because I could not get an American woman. Boy, were they surpr

Cleo, I made a blooper. Chen's offer was four or five billion. I forgot to put in the "or." I heard this offer being made personally. One day, Mr. Chen's son drove up to the desert in his Rolls-Royce. He invited the owner of the real estate agency and the sales staff out to lunch. This was the first time in my life that I had ever ridden in a Rolls-Royce. Probably the last. He made tha

Cleo, lets discuss some of the alternatives to President Bush and Tony Blair, both of whom I admire and am not ashamed to admit it. My own family used to be quite rich. We were hated by most of the poor people in town. When we were poor, Mother belonged to a quilting and sewing club. After we got rich, they told her they didn't want her with them any more. Mother was devastated! When the Korean

Hi, Cleo: Cleo, In my opinion, you and I are on nearly the exact wavelength, but with some important variations. You think that there are both good and bad beliefs, and I see all beliefs as bad in the long run. How can we differentiate between good and bad beliefs? For example, I have always been an incurable optimist. One day, my son said to me, "Dad, I've noticed that you are always th

Hoppy, now that we're on the subject of animals, I thought you'd like to know that most of the Southwestern Indian and Mexican words for coyote and buffalo come directly from India. As you know, the coyote holds a high position in Amerindian religions. In his book, "The Religions of the Indians of California," author A. K.

Deano, if I were to have a tonal, I think it would be the coyote. If, as they say, cats have nine lives, coyotes have eighteen. There is nothing man can do to stamp them out, although he can do it with bears, wildcats, pumas, turtles, and others. I just love to watch them roaming free. One time, during dawn, I even saw a group of them playing their own type of soccer. The coyotes were divided int
