Hi, Greg – Good question, that. Astrology has always recognized the sun as the primary indicator of the physical self, the outward manifestation of the person. Its influence is said to be the dominant factor in the chart, followed by that of the moon, the sign rising on the eastern ascension at the moment of birth/first breath, and all other factors. The so-called “position of the sun” in t

Riaan - I don't intend to enter into debate about the nature of Mutwa's beliefs. Nor do I believe that the fact that Stephen Larsen served as the book's editor in any way implies his personal endorsement of those beliefs. An editor is an editor is an editor. It is work for hire, frequently by the book's publisher or your agent. Because you may personally disagree with Mr. Mutwa's traditions

Robert - Randi's Million Dollar Challenge is ROTFL. Here's why: True psychic experience is subtle and very, very difficult to re-create. DebraEgypt's comment that it's "spontaneous" is pretty close to the mark. Suppose - for the sake of argument - that you experienced this: You and a lovely lady have an evening of remarkable, unforgettable passion. The next day, you are telling y

Dearest Robert - My life has been consumed with these experiences - too many to detail here. (Over the years, I have taken some care to keep my own notes and files of the major events, but they are too many and complex to describe here. I do not plan to publish them except maybe posthumously...) Enough to say - to my immense satisfaction - that there are many people now alive who would not b

Thanks, John. You commented: "They knew important things we don't know, and it behooves us to try to learn what they are." Amen to that. And the great frustration - as you've pointed out - is that our ability to interpret ancient knowledge is dependent on our own increased knowledge base. We don't understand what they knew until our own technology catches up with it. All best wish

Mr. West - I read your essay on the Forum page with the greatest pleasure, and look forward to seeing the book that it prefaces. My question is whether your interpretation (if that is the word) of the yuga cycle in any way intersects with the data of the Mayan calendar, which famously indicates the "turning of an age" or "end/beginning of a cycle" at precisely the solstice

Hi, Kim - Wow. You mean that none of this is actually "chapter and verse" from the Bible? That all the earnest and Bible-beating "Rapturists" (if that's the term) are following a doctrine that Christ himself never taught? That everything Rapturous sprouts from the writings of St. John of Patymos - who might have been anyone? Too funny! Thanks, again and again, for your

Hello, again, Patrick No, I don't think you're "just trying to sell books" If you were, you'd have picked a more entertaining topic! :-) I think your views and beliefs are sincerly held, and you're trying to do right as you see it. You said: "I some times use this metaphor when speaking about the coming Apocalypse: The bad news is, the Titanic is going down. The good news is, y

Dear Patrick - You noted that "Christians have been persecuted and murdered for their faith all through the ages..." True. And so have Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, Parsees, Jews, Buddhists, Taoists, Zoroastrians and - have I left anyone out? Let's not even discuss Six Crusades (begun, as I recall, at the behest of the Christian leadership). Dearest Patrick, impending martyrdom "fo

Maurice - My hat is off to you for your outstanding exegesis of those Biblical passages. Truly, your work does restore what high respect (if I can no longer allude to *faith*) that I have for the orthodox Christian tradition. You are a soul whose inner light shines brightly.

Kim commented: "One could conclude that the Age of Aquarius is the Age of the Water of Life, his "spirit" given freely by Christ." Well said, Kim. And The Fifth Dimension's wonderful song is actually from the hippie-dippy '60's, the 1st rock musical by Rado & Ragni: "Hair". It was the age of the tribal love-in, be-in, tune in turn on drop out time. That was w

Hi, Sunsword - Doing "the right thing" is not - as you point out - merely a matter of cultural relativism. But it is a matter of intent and purpose in the doing. Your motives for your actions very much matter. (I won't even discuss whether something is "legal" as any basis for right or wrong....) In Christian theology (if I may) we recognize that someone must reach the Age

Hello, All - Interesting comment today on Apocalyptic thinking, the ending of the age of Pisces and the beginning of the age of Aquarius in Michael Wolfstar's astrological column. He says "From an astrological perspective, one might say that those who cling to the Pisces myth of Armageddon are assisting in its manifestation, while those who adopt the Aquarian concept of the World Soul are

Dear Elizabeth - Your ideas and work in this area sounds most intriguing, and I must say I am very much "in synch" with your comments: "As far as I'm aware, the concept of discrimination appears only in two places: the bible and in some new age literature. And in both places, the concept of discrimination is heavily aligned with judgemental issues. All in all, I've formed the vi

Hello, Patrick - I was fascinated by your definition of a saint: "A saint is anyone who believes in The Messiah, i.e accepts him as a personal saviour and believes God raised him from the dead." My goodness. While I understand that your definition may be one that your own life finds useful, speaking as one who has pursued a spiritual path of many decades - and lifetimes - I wish - I

Claude - Mmmm, perhaps you should re-read my original post again. That's not what I actually said. Surely, you know me well enough to know that an "Every man for himself...etc" view does not - and could not! - in any way reflect my own. Quite the contrary! I was referring to some (bestselling and otherwise) writers who seem to enjoy the shadenfreude and horror-mongoring of having most

Hello, Patrick. I am finding the discussion of your book scholarly and fascinating - if somewhat beyond my poor Jesuit-educated powers (Banah, you are amazing!). But while I am in no position to evaluate the merits of any of the thoughtful points being made here - if I were to take as a working assumption that your root thesis is essentially correct and the Apocalypse (however defined) is upo

Hi, Fiascohoho! You commented that some recent rap-type music seems somehow degenerate or anti-human, if I may use that term. Your reaction to it could (however politically incorrect it may be to say this) have some basis in scientific fact. Perhaps Michael Hayes has covered this in his book, which I have not yet had the opportunity to read, but rap music - and other types of hard rock - use a

Hello, All! I'm pleasantly suprised to find this very promising book up next for discussion, but apparently the only place to get a copy quickly is from the publisher, blackspringpress.co.uk. The book's not listed on Amazon.com at all yet, and Amazon.uk says "three to five weeks" for delivery! Chapters/Indigo.ca is hopeless (as usual...) But Black Spring Press will air mail overseas
