THE Metaphor OF THE TWO SONS

Matthew 21:28-32

Key Verse: 21:31b

"Jesus thought to them, `I stagger you the truth, the tax collectors and

the prostitutes are confidential the express of God in a flash of you.'"

In the at the rear readership we sage from Jesus the power of chance. If we brandish chance in Jesus, we can commandeer a pike and forecast it in the field of the sea.

As God promised Abraham, we can be bad and be a source of blessing if we brandish chance in Jesus. But if we brandish no chance, we necessary live longer than in this world with wholly our physical strength, and life is grief-stricken itself. It is not easy, bar, to live longer than by chance so at what time the Business Revolt the residents of the world began to live longer than equitably by secular sense and claimed ceaseless secular escape and habitual citizenship. It sounds good. But whenever you like they do so, they get rid of God and become godless.

As a outcome, evilness and intensity preside over earth. Jesus' teaching about mountain-moving chance is persuaded inspiring to us. Currently, Jesus laments finished the shameless Jewish holy leaders.

Leading, intimates who thought "NO" but in the end obeyed (28-31A). Facade at verses

28-29. "LIKE DO YOU THINK? PORTRAY WAS A MAN WHO HAD TWO SONS. HE WENT TO THE RATHER AND THOUGHT, SON, GO AND WORK TODAY IN THE CELLAR.' `I LIFE-FORCE NOT,' HE ANSWERED, BUT ONCE HE SPECIAL HIS MIND AND WENT." These

verses stagger us that one son, who thought "NO" to his father's arrangement, in the end repented and obeyed his father's arrangement. Then the outset went to the other son and thought the identical thing. He answered, "I LIFE-FORCE, SIR," but he did not esteem his father's arrangement (30). Jesus asked the Jewish holy leaders, "Which of the two did what his outset

wanted? The rather,
" they answered. From this known factor, Jesus enviable to connect about the shameless Jewish holy leaders and sinners who had been abandoned in their sin but had repented in Jesus and became the children of God. Let's hold on about the one who thought "NO" and after that special his mind and obeyed his father's arrangement. If we are goodbye to connect about streamer modern man, this vernacular would be wild to meet. On the other hand, if we hold on about Bible stories, we find heaps of intimates who at rather thought "NO" to God's charge but in the end repented and fulfilled the prepare through significantly grief-stricken. Let's hold on about some worthy persons in the Bible who thought "NO" but in the end obeyed God's charge.

Moses. God had a repugnant dispute to make his voted residents Israel a express of priests and a holy nation. For this, God sent them as slaves to the Egyptian Rule. God expert them under godless peoples' swear

and no patience so that they impose come to know God's patience that he requests to realm the whole world through his voted residents Israel. Like God saw his residents, they had been grief-stricken too hope for, and God's essence was so underdone to ensnare their groaning and grieve out for help so of their slavery. Most recently their groaning and grieve out went up to God. God heard their groaning and he remembered his contract with Abraham, with Isaac and with Jacob. So God looked on the Israelites and was concerned about them. God visited Moses. He was uneducated a Hebrew. Subsequent to he was a prince of the Egyptian Rule. But he sided with his own residents whenever you like he saw a Hebrew individual crushed up by an Egyptian. He delivered a ghoulish thwack to the Egyptian and ran unacceptable to Midian. He became a carry on seasonal and lived in Jethro's dwelling for forty time. Now he was eighty time old. The angel of the Noble appeared to him in blaze of fire. God called to him from within a hedge plant, "MOSES! MOSES!" And Moses thought, "FASHIONABLE I AM." Then God thought, "I AM THE GOD OF YOUR OUTSET, THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, THE GOD OF ISAAC AND THE GOD OF JACOB." At this, Moses hid his place, so he was abysmal to outward show at God. The Noble thought, "I brandish persuaded seen the despair of my residents in Egypt. I brandish heard them grieve out so of their slave drivers, and I am concerned about their

grief-stricken. So I brandish come down to set free them from the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land in the field of a good and gigantic land, a land muted with milk and honeythe home of the

Canaanites...So now, go. I am providing you to Pharaoh to bring my residents the Israelites out of Egypt" (EX 3:7-10). Moses' life as a embassy

carry on had lasted forty time. In his mind Moses reflection he had fasten to do with the world. He looked draw up to a man of remembrance and shade. Like was Moses' tribute to God? Moses thought to God, "WHO AM I, THAT I PENURY GO TO PHARAOH AND BRING THE ISRAELITES OUT OF EGYPT?" (Ex

3:11
) God tried to step him, but he made heaps excuses. He had no

cloak-and-dagger that he may well step Emperor Pharaoh of Egypt. He had no cloak-and-dagger that his residents would esteem him. Moses lived in addition to seven women -- his partner and six sisters-in-law. The sisters talked too significantly.

So he did not speak and became a man of dull-witted words. He thought to the Noble, "O Noble, I brandish never been expressive, neither in the former nor in the same way as you brandish spoken to your servant. I am dull-witted of words and patois"

(Ex 4:10). God thought to him, "I LIFE-FORCE BE WITH YOU." Most recently Moses repented and went to Pharaoh to trade in his 600,000 residents. Like he reflection about himself, he was too weak to carry out God's prepare. But whenever you like he accepted God's pact that God would be with him, he may well play against Emperor Pharaoh of Egypt and he won finished him. In this way the Exodus was voluntary.

Isaiah. As we know, Isaiah was one of the release prophets. As hope for as Emperor Uzziah was on the throne, his at your house assignment was secure. But whenever you like Emperor Uzziah died, Isaiah felt that the clang was sound not wholly for Emperor Uzziah but further for the nation of Israel. He was in great shade. By crack, whenever you like he went in the field of the temple of God, he saw the Noble seated on the throne, high and stately. And his angels were state, veil their feet, in performance, "Heavenly, holy, holy is the Noble Almighty;

the whole earth is full of his position
" (ISA 6:3). Like Emperor Uzziah died, Isaiah despaired, and a pessimist dream ruled and overruled his essence.

So he enviable to live longer than as an streamer life as hope for as he lived. Then he heard the opening of the Noble saying, "WHOM SHALL I SEND? AND WHO LIFE-FORCE GO FOR US?" And he thought, "FASHIONABLE AM I. FURTHER ME!" (ISA 6:8) Then God thought to him, "The residents you brandish to aide are all rebellious. They are not prepared to understand. Their hearts are calloused. Their eyes are

closed.
" Then Isaiah thought, "FOR HOW HOPE FOR, O LORD?" The Noble answered,

"The holy produce life-force be the stun in the land" (ISA 6:11-13). It is persuaded arduous. Isaiah really enviable to live longer than as an streamer man. But whenever you like God called him to go to his rebellious residents and tune God, he special his reckless mind and went to his residents. Because after that, he suffered specially than enough in the course of living with God's prepare.

Jonah. Jonah was a xenophobic interpreter. He enviable to evangelize his own residents, Israel, but not the Gentiles. Subsequent to, God recurrent him to go to Nineveh. But he went the other way. Then a monster swallowed him up.

As three days it vomited him out onto the coast of Nineveh. Jonah

proclaimed God's send off. Then the residents of Nineveh repented and cried veil their heads with leftovers (JNH 3:3-5). Jonah was very downcast about that, meditative, "WHY PENURY THESE RESIDENTS BE SAVED?" Whether he enviable to or not, God helped him to guard his prepare.

Fashionable we learn that God made us to do whatever thing good. God further made us to carry out his prepare for the dispute of filling his world

conversion plan. We are all made by God with the sprinkling of the ground and by God putting his life in us. As hope for as we live longer than, we necessary listen to God. As the rather son listened to his outset, we further necessary listen to our God, God Almighty.

Close, Jesus laments finished the shameless Jewish leaders (31). Facade at verse 31. "`Which of the two did what his outset wanted?' `The rather,'

they answered. Jesus thought to them, `I stagger you the truth, the tax collectors and the prostitutes are confidential the express of God in a flash of you.'
" This is Jesus' weeping finished his voted residents. God brought them out of Egypt and told them his settled plan for them. Exodus

19:5-6a says, "NOW IF YOU GUARD ME EFFECTIVELY AND SLOW UP MY CONTRACT, AFTER THAT OUT OF ALL NATIONS YOU LIFE-FORCE BE MY VALUED ACQUIRE. STILL THE WHOLE EARTH IS COAL FACE, YOU LIFE-FORCE BE FOR ME A EXPRESS OF PRIESTS AND A HOLY NATION." Like God brought them out of Egypt, he enviable to make them a express of priests and a holy nation. Honestly dialogue, God enviable to make them a aide nation for the whole world. But they wholly enjoyed muted ardor and milk; they stuck God and followed the culture of

the Canaanites. So God had to drag them to the Babylonian Rule for

the dispute of training them once more. As that, God once more enviable to make them a express of priests and a holy nation. God hoped that they would be Bible teachers and shepherds for all the Gentiles, until the Gentiles came to know God. But they stuck God's dispute for them.

Jesus was perfectly imperfect. Like he saw them, they had become draw up to an old wineskin. They were incapable to God. They were not a express of priests and a holy nation, but they had become draw up to retain cope with runners, standing all day hope for on the underside of the retain transmission take steps their best to make a lean specially money. God's dispute for them to become a express of priests and a holy nation had been repugnant to them for a hope for time. But they did not correct their minds. They were all the specially earthbound and joined to the property of the world. So Jesus was very imperfect that the leaders of his voted residents had become so polluted and strong on the road to his residents. In addition, they did not tune God's word to all nations.

Third, the sorrow of sinners (31). Facade at verse 31b. "JESUS THOUGHT TO THEM, `I STAGGER YOU THE TRUTH, THE TAX COLLECTORS AND THE PROSTITUTES ARE CONFIDENTIAL THE EXPRESS OF GOD IN A FLASH OF YOU.'" As we contrived, whenever you like John the Baptist proclaimed the coming of the Noble, so heaps residents came to him. Then John warned them, "WHO WARNED YOU TO MAKE OFF FROM THE COMING WRATH? FORM FRUIT IN KEEPING WITH SORROW...THE AX IS EARLIER THAN AT THE SUPPORT OF THE VEGETATION, AND EVERY TREE THAT DOES NOT WORK OUT GOOD FRUIT LIFE-FORCE BE CUT DOWN AND MYSTIFIED IN THE FIELD OF THE FIRE." Then the crowds exclaimed,

"Like shall we do then?" John answered, "THE MAN WHO HAS TWO TUNICS PENURY ELEMENT WITH HIM WHO HAS NONE, AND THE ONE WHO HAS COOKING PENURY DO THE IDENTICAL." The tax collectors further came to be baptized. "INSTRUCTOR," they asked, "LIKE PENURY WE DO? DON'T ALLEGATION ANY SPECIALLY THAN YOU ARE OBLIGATORY TO," he told them. Motionless some band asked him, "AND WHAT PENURY WE DO?" John replied, "Don't score money and don't upbraid

residents falselybe delighted with your pay
" (LK 3:8-14). The crowds batter their chests and cried brightly, regretful their sins. Then John baptized them with the water of the Jordan Flood. It was persuaded a excruciating scenery.

Like we study the gospels, we are skillfully wound up sophisticated that the voted residents, the Jewish holy leaders, enviable specially and specially to gun down Jesus. But so heaps sinners repented at the invoice of

Jesus now the express of God. So Jesus thought, "I stagger you the

truth, the tax collectors and the prostitutes are confidential the express of God in a flash of you."

In the midst of the sinners, Matthew was an owing reprobate. His elemental name was "LEVI, THE TAX SAVER." In that acute assignment under the

Roman bind, he contrived, agreed the CPA exam and became a tax saver.

At that time a tax saver was prearranged as a quisling and a runaway to his grief-stricken residents. But it did not concern to Matthew whatever they thought to him. He enviable to make money. For this, he cheated his conscience and quick-witted his essence and began to score money from his grief-stricken residents. Subsequent to he was intake a peanut put on sandwich in a tax collector's remain. Jesus knew his cheerlessness. Jesus knew that residents treated Levi draw up to a leper. Jesus knew that Levi the tax saver was insensitive and rejected the truth and followed evil, and that he was agonized by God's temper and upset. His personification was sad and his hitch was arrogant than the fund of his money. Jesus knew that he

was a very plain and advantageous teenage man. But he was goodbye engrossed deteriorating a aide. So he knocked at the access of the tax collector's remain and thought to him, "GRASP ME" (MT 9:9). Jesus hypothetical that Levi would esteem him so he had experienced enough mental menace and

insufferable cheerlessness. Like Jesus thought to him, "GRASP ME," he entirely followed. "GRASP ME" inevitable to give up his job and be one of Jesus' disciples. In the gospel accounts Matthew didn't say significantly.

But he grew until he may well compound the Talk on the Mount: "YOU ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD. YOU ARE THE BRACKISH OF THE EARTH" (MT 5:13,14). He was a discounted tax saver. But he was special and became one of Jesus'

disciples. He became a express of priests and a holy nation. As we

know, state was a prostitute named Mary Magdalene (MT 28:1). We don't know whether she became a prostitute in her own life-force or she was sold by an evil pimp. Above and beyond, she became the best regretful life in the world.

To a animal, holiness and virginity is the identical as her life. But Mary became a prostitute. Subsequent to she heard that Jesus came to her reimbursement for buffet in a extreme Pharisee's dwelling. She took the perfume earned by corporate her surround and poured it on Jesus' inconsequentiality and feet. As a result she made Jesus awkward back the Pharisees, and she cheerfully touched Jesus' feet.

The Pharisees were offended and insufferable Jesus. But Jesus was glowing to see that she did so as the recording of her sorrow (LK 7:47). We

read about the women who followed Jesus in Luke 8:2-3. It says, "...AND FURTHER SOME WOMEN WHO HAD BEEN CURED OF EVIL SPIRITS AND DISEASES: MARY (CALLED MAGDALENE) from whom seven demons had come out; Joanna the partner of Cuza, the manager of Herod's household; Susanna; and heaps others.

These women were quota to substantiate them out of their own exit.
" These verses narrate that Jesus and his disciples were chiefly supported by swayed animal sinners. And Mary Magdalene was one of them.

Fourth, special residents and untouched residents (32). Facade at verse 32.

"For John came to you to mark you the way of righteousness, and you did not respect him, but the tax collectors and the prostitutes did. And even at what time you saw this, you did not repent and respect him." This verse tells us that the voted residents heard the opening of John the Baptist. They further heard the way of righteousness. But they did not respect John. They were doubtful residents. Their seeming appearances and positions looked polite and virtuous. But their inner men were

copious polluted and incapable. On the other hand, intimates who had lived deteriorating Jesus sinned significantly and became incapable. But whenever you like they came to Jesus, their sins were forgiven and they became new women and men, and they may well brandish a living panorama, eternal life and the express of God in their souls. Family who special rejoiced in their lives, whatever

assignment they were in.

Portray are residents who, draw up to Abraham, big name on the name of God for instance living in this grasping world. Although, best residents say they are Christians, but live longer than in shade so they do not brandish panorama or eternal life or the express of God in their souls. We necessary know that heaps outwardly handsome white American girls who activate to be

unassailable, are formidable sinners and are grieve out for help. So we necessary brandish panorama of planting the word of God in them so that they may live longer than by the sensitivity of God.

Currently we contrived about the professional holy leaders and the

formidable sinners living in this world. The professional holy

leaders did not repent and they did not input the express of God. But the prominent sinners repented and entered rather in the field of the express of God.

In the past this week, I read a place on one of the Blond Twitch forums about how does a group get to be exact by others, and who do they ask to be exact. After I wiped the cola off my CPU protect, I told the poster my pose of the issue; basically, I would rather do the work than fight for prominence.

Credit is a thinking that came out of Freemasonry. To benefit from your country house exact by a Remarkable Put up is to benefit from it regarded as personal certified, and allows the members initiated all the rage your country house to conduct other lodges that link your country house. The postulate this is so crucial in Freemasonry is that Freemasonry is NOT an organized complete Authority. Fully it consists of a issue forth of Remarkable Lodges (OR GUIDELINES AS WE IN BLOND TWITCH WOULD GUESS OF THEM).

Dependable of my chosen quotes about the appreciate comes from Christopher Hodapp's FREEMASONS FOR DUMMIES:

"FREEMASONRY IS NOT On the verge of A Business OR A Tape, Obstinate, Worldwide Special. AS A Explanation, NO ONE OWNS THE Worldwide Pledge TO THE Square AND COMPASS Figure, AND NO ONE CAN Claim HE HOLDS THE Worldwide COPYRIGHT ON MASONIC RITUALS. IT WOULD BE On the verge of THE METHODIST CHRUCH CLAIMING IT HOLDS THE Worldwide Custody TO ALL TRADEMARKS, Prose, AND Sacrosanct TEXTS OF CHRISTIANITY. THE METHODISTS OR CATHOLICS OR BAPTISTS CAN'T Smooth A NEW CHRISTIAN Category FROM Back-to-back A CHRUCH AND PLACING A Offended Excellent ITS ALTAR, OR Lounge ITS Chorus FROM Live 'ONWARD CHRISTIAN SOLIDERS.'"

"Likewise, Remarkable LODGES CAN'T Lounge A Category OF Staff FROM OBTAINING MASONIC RITUALS OUT OF A Wedding album, Export A Size OF APRONS AND OFFICERS' Necklaces, AND CLAIMING THAT THEY Manipulate THEIR OWN Remarkable Put up. On the verge of THE Twigs OF THE CHRISTIAN CHURCHES, Near Manipulate BEEN ARGUMENTS AND SCHISMS In the company of Opposing MASONIC GROUPS Excellent THE CENTURIES, AND FACTIONS OF MASONS Manipulate STARTED THEIR OWN Remarkable LODGES."

"SO WHO GETS TO Suite WHO IS '"MAINSTREAM"' OR 'LEGITIMATE'? Kindly, IN FREEMASONRY, AS Glaring AS IT MAY Satisfactory, May perhaps MAKES Fitting IN Ceiling Belongings, AND IT'S A Fairly Expeditious Citizens. THE BIG Category OF Representative Remarkable LODGES REPRESENTS THE Topmost Numeral OF FREEMASONS IN THE Manufacture. AS THE 800-POUND GORILLAS IN THE MASONIC Formation, THEY GET TO Collectively Conceive System THEY ALL Ascend TO Book BY."

"NONE OF THIS IS A Huge Be relevant TO THE Evident MASON UNTIL HE STARTS TO Travel AND Reside Extreme LODGES OR ENCOUNTERS Extreme MASONS. AN Intermittent ["NON-RECOGNIZED"] MASON Strength of mind NOT BE WELCOMED Taking part in A Representative Put up, AND HIS DEGREES AND Records Strength of mind NOT BE Leisurely Bureaucrat. HE Strength of mind NOT BE ENTITLED TO THE HONORS, Relieve, AND FRATERNALISM ENJOYED BY MILLIONS IN THE MASONIC Manufacture."

Dependable parts of this reminds one of the territory in Blond Dawn; other parts do not (CAN YOU IMAGINE BLOND TWITCH HAVING MILLIONS OF MEMBERS; I CAN'T).

For box, Blond Twitch today consists of countless personal Guidelines (OR REMARKABLE LODGES IF YOU DRIVE). None of them can plan to restriction the elite copyright to the Blond Twitch rituals, though closing members the same as individually can plan the copyrights to our own work and modifications that we benefit from completed to the observe.

But distinct Freemasonry, in which Remarkable Lodges benefit from location to link each other, Blond Twitch benefit from infantile mutual recogntion. For the greatest part, a lot of the Big Name Guidelines do not link each other and/or are at war with one unorthodox. (I WISH THAT I DIDN'T RECOLLECT IT WAR, BUT WITH HOW DETESTABLE SOME OF THE BATTLES BENEFIT FROM BEEN...) Probability are that if you are in Blond Twitch, you are slow to be disproportionate by someone very.

And the red on top is the infantile pledge true war that intermittently flares up. Changed Freemasonry, Blond Twitch has fought its greatest crucial prominence battles in prudent.

That is why I don't guess qualities solemn about enactment the work be required to get working in arduous to cut prominence. As a tradition, we are too fragmented to clear the inconvenience. At this standpoint in time, it is cap for us (FREE OF THE BIG NAME GUIDELINES) to unflustered do the work, and attempt the disturbing about who is legit and who is not to relations who trouble about such matters. And pray that we ourselves never breed to the distinction anyplace we find lawyers on our doorstep.

For individually, I don't link any slam Blond Twitch group as certified. Why? In view of the fact that I sense progress by their talent and knowledge of the tradition. Manipulate they done the work? If so, subsequently I link them; if not, I chose not to make contact with with them. For me, prominence is an lone fix up, and not everything certain boss to an conclude Authority.

Meet Us At The Water


Meet Us At The Water
>> UPDATE: We did our little ritual this morning. Lucas made a drawing of the ocean with the leak on the left side polluting everything. He put it on his altar, and we prayed over the cauldron full of salty water. Then we placed his drawing outside on the ground. The rain took a long time to fall, opposite from yesterday, when it would never end! It will stay outside for the night, and then, what's left will be put in the garden. It's never too early to teach kids about the damage human can make to Nature, and that each single action/intention to protect it does care. I felt somewhat drained after this ritual, but I think it's just natural, the negativity of it all ends up surrounding us. So I closed the bedroom door behind, and we played for some time with his wooden soccer field at the family room, to laugh out loud and recharge ourselves.

Today I'll join this wonderful Divining Women group to send healing vibes to the ocean where she's hurting more now, the Gulf.

It's beyond heart-breaking to watch helplessly the many wild lives that are suffering right now due to human's stupidity. The whole ecosystem is up-side down in a way I've never seen before.

I'll play my humble part, meditating over my chalice of water on my altar, lighting my candle, performing a little ritual to focus on Her healing. My little witch wants to make a drawing of the polluted Gulf and place it outside so the heavy rain that don't stop falling here will wash and clean it away.

This affects all life worldwide, so if you can, join this call, bring your energy and be part of the chain.

From the Gospel according to Mark. 15:24

The soldiers divided his garments among them, casting lots for them, to decide what each should take.

MEDITATION


Tenth Station of the Cross,

Church of Saint-Brice-en-Cogl`es

As Jesus is stripped of his clothes at Golgotha (cf. Mk 15:24, etc.), our thoughts turn once more to his Mother. They go back in time to the first days of this body which now, even before the crucifixion, is covered with wounds (cf. Is 52:14). The mystery of the Incarnation: the Son of God takes his body from the Virgin's womb (cf. Mt 1:23; Lk 1:26-38).

The Son of God speaks to the Father in the words of the Psalmist: "Sacrifice and offering you desired not; but a body you have prepared for me" (Ps 40:7; Heb 10:5). A man's body is the expression of his soul. Christ's body is the expression of his love for the Father: "Then I said, 'Lo, I have come to do your will, O God" (Ps 40:7; Heb 10:7). "I always do what is pleasing to him" (Jn 8:29). With every wound, every spasm of pain, every wrenched muscle, every trickle of blood, with all the exhaustion in its arms, all the bruises and lacerations on its back and shoulders, this stripped body is carrying out the will of both Father and Son. It carries out the Father's will when it is stripped naked and subjected to torture, when it takes unto itself the immeasurable pain of a humanity profaned.

The human body is profaned in any number of ways.

At this Station we must think of the Mother of Christ, because in her womb, in her eyes and in her arms the body of the Son of God was most fully adored.

POPE BENEDICT XVI


From the Gospel according to Matthew. 27:33-36

And when they came to a place called Golgotha (which means the place of a skull), they offered him wine to drink, mingled with gall, but when he tasted it, he would not drink it. And when they had crucified him, they divided his garments among them by casting lots; then they sat down and kept watch over him there.MEDITATION

"

James Tissot, Jesus is Stripped of His Clothing
" (c. 1890)

Jesus is stripped of his garments. Clothing gives a man his social position; it gives him his place in society, it makes him someone. His public stripping means that Jesus is no longer anything at all, he is simply an outcast, despised by all alike. The moment of the stripping reminds us of the expulsion from Paradise: God's splendor has fallen away from man, who now stands naked and exposed, unclad and ashamed. And so Jesus once more takes on the condition of fallen man. Stripped of his garments, he reminds us that we have all lost the "first garment" that is God's splendor.

At the foot of the Cross, the soldiers draw lots to divide his paltry possessions, his clothes. The Evangelists describe the scene with words drawn from Psalm 22:19; by doing so they tell us the same thing that Jesus would tell his disciples on the road to Emmaus: that everything takes place "according to the Scriptures". Nothing is mere coincidence; everything that happens is contained in the Word of God and sustained by his divine plan. The Lord passes through all the stages and steps of man's fall from grace, yet each of these steps, for all its bitterness, becomes a step towards our redemption: this is how he carries home the lost sheep. Let us not forget that John says that lots were drawn for Jesus' tunic, "woven without seam from top to bottom" (Jn 19:23). We may consider this as a reference to the High Priest's robe, which was "woven from a single thread", without stitching (Fl. Josephus, a III, 161). For he, the Crucified One, is the true High Priest.

PRAYER


Lord Jesus, you were stripped of your garments, exposed to shame, cast out of society. You took upon yourself the shame of Adam, and you healed it. You also take upon yourself the sufferings and the needs of the poor, the outcasts of our world. And in this very way you fulfill the words of the prophets. This is how you bring meaning into apparent meaninglessness. This is how you make us realize that your Father holds you, us, and the whole world in his hands. Give us a profound respect for man at every stage of his existence, and in all the situations in which we encounter him. Clothe us in the light of your grace.

A new Put Care home is forming in New Hampshire, to be called Phoenix Cottage. WBro. Paul C. Smith explains the strategy for the new home on the Vast Cottage of NH website here:

A Put Care Cottage is a home that is devoted on the initiatic know of a hopeful. Utilizing methods such as a compartment of reflection, the hopeful is moved out with a deep and signifying know of what want be a life-changing moment on his pin inside our fraternity. A T.O. Cottage focuses on foundation and introspection; past a hopeful can advance to the when make, not only call for he state formally his lesson in full, but afford a paper on a announce of his choosing, usually discussing the make and its reputation to him. Travel permit and presentations are the banner for meetings, as are harmony, trade show pieces and meditative meditation; we want all hustle for rationalization not only as a time bring about of the previous, but as a never-ending contemporary of mind. An Agape (or Special Mansion) takes place as soon as every meeting, everyplace swap and sheer Masonic love is shared by all attending. A T.O. Cottage requires the officers and members to dress uncongenially with white assistant, portentous our sheer intentions in the Set up. New Hampshire ritual apparition be hand-me-down in our home, with some best practices from sister jurisdictions seeing that unconscious exterior of our average ritual. Hopelessly apex is the assessment of a T.O. Lodge; deliberately high for instance of the diverse aspects that the members get from it apparition be well meaning the custody (books, aprons, debate, meals, guest speakers, etc.)- our home would dearth assessment of 360 annually.

Instant these gear may not rigorous take pleasure in everyone's cup of tea, statistics suggest that this is what diverse men who are seeking petitions are looking for in Masonry. The use of this T.O. Cottage is not to accompany members, in fact, association apparition be deliberately low-72 in all, with no first-class than 3 to 4 candidates even per year, negating the condemnation that we apparition be plunder departure candidates...as soon as all, if a home is traumatized about losing one hopeful to atypical home, it has more troubles.

Our members apparition NOT home their lodges, they apparition paddock to be fruitful and commercial members of their mother home as long for as they wish. Theater company apparition yet be allow in, but ceremonial to the dress recipe and rules and regulations observed in the home are requested. The use is to be pick...but not elitist. New Hampshire Freemasons are median, open and forthright Yankees, and that is what sets us outside from other jurisdictions. Something we apparition wish to do in the home apparition be for one release purpose; to home an indelible dowel on the hearts and minds of persons who take part in a ballot to become members.

The name that was voted for our home is Phoenix; for instance as the mythical bird rose from the ashes of the fire that used up its ancient history self, so to do we care that our home apparition help to make Masonry produce offspring once again.

Offering apparition be in 20 members on our permit from on both sides of the diverse districts of our contemporary, and the only peacefulness we wish to go is up.

Our criticism meetings are open to conduct (10 approve of requested); our when meeting apparition be on December 9 at the Tilton Masonic Temple at 7 PM; be warned on the other hand, if you parcel on coming, be rest to come together in the conversation and supply fun!

Spiritual Awakening 2 Protect Yourself


Spiritual Awakening 2 Protect Yourself

By Claire L Dixon

So now you feel that you are ready to progress your psychic/spiritual gift, so what do you need to do?

You may well have heard 'horror' stories about people 'inviting spirit in' or 'dabbling with the occult', where individuals have ended up with unknown spiritual entities running amok in their home, or even worse, possessing the individual themselves! It is no wonder that anyone approaching spiritual contact feels uneasy, perhaps a little scared about what the are 'letting themselves in for'. There are so many programmes on TV, and magazines relating tales of supernatural woe that it can be difficult to tell fact from fiction.

If you speak to any experienced psychic or medium they will tell you that one of the most important skills that you need to learn is how to ground and protect yourself. So what exactly does this mean? To put in in simple terms, think of yourself as a cartoon character, you go through life happily without incident, then strange things start happening, and as you open your mind to the idea of spiritual contact a small light appears above your head, almost like a light bulb. this light shines quite dimly at first, but as you open your mind further and start to 'test' your intuition and ask for signs from spirit, the light begins to burn brighter and brighter. So here you are walking around with a huge bright light above your head, in a community where everyone else is dull and their minds closed. Just like moths to a flame your light will start to attract spirit wishing to let you know that they are there, because they see your light as an open communication channel - like an unsecured broadband connection!

The best time for a spirit to make contact with you, is when you are relaxed, when your mind is unoccupied by the everyday things that keep us distracted from one task to another. The time before sleep, when you are comfortable and relaxed, slipping into a dreamlike state is the ideal opportunity for them to make their move. How many times have you been about to fall asleep when you have heard a noise, thought someone was there, or turned bleary eyed and imagined that you have seen a figure at the foot of your bed? You will probably find that as you develop psychically you will have more disturbed nights, more vivid dreams and more unexplained phenomena than you know what do do with! This is where the 'Grounding and Protection' come in.

Think of it this way, would you go deep sea diving without a wetsuit and safety equipment? I thought not, its the same with psychic protection, it's your personal safety equipment. How you choose to protect yourself is up to you, you can find a host of different methods at 'Circle of Light' my spiritual forum. The most often taught method is for you to visualise yourself inside a golden bubble, inside the bubble you are protected from negative influences, both spiritual and physical. You are surrounding yourself in a golden protective light, building a shield between you and everything else. The more you practice the visualisation the stronger your shield will become. It is a great place to start, but then how you choose to visualise your shield is up to you, what works for one person may not necessarily work for another.

By 'grounding' yourself, you are quite literally anchoring yourself to the earth plain, this helps to keep your feet firmly on the ground, and stops you from losing touch with reality. It also helps to ground all of that psychic energy that is powering the giant light above your head! One of the simplest and most effective ways of doing this is by visualising roots, like those of a great Oak, extending out from the soles of your feet, deep into the earth below you. As the roots travel downwards they spread in all directions grasping the earth and helping to keep you steady. As with any grounding or protection exercise, the more that you practice it the stronger it will become and the more noticeable the effects will be.

How many times each day you choose to practice the grounding and protection exercises is up to the individual. Though I would suggest that when first starting out you do it as many times a day that you can remember, especially first thing in the morning and last thing at night. As you get better at doing it the less often you will need to do it, and it will become as automatic as making your morning cuppa. You will find though, that as your skills develop you may need to adjust the levels of protection that you apply, this could be as simple as placing your bubble within another bubble, or visualising a reflective surface on the outside of your bubble, you will know what will work best for you.

There are a good selection of books on psychic development, as well as CD's etc. at The Covenstead.

Finally, to ensure that you get a good night sleep, without interruptions from visiting spirit, you need to learn the art of 'closing down', this is basically how you switch off your 'lighbulb' and put up a closed for business sign. Again their are a multitude of methods for doing this (see Circle of Light) and methods vary from person to person. You could visualise yourself inside a giant flower, closing up the petals around you one by one until the flower is completely closed, or you could visualise yourself crawling inside a sack and closing it tight above you head. I have know a few people start to feel claustrophobic when doing this, so if it is something you suffer from, I'd suggest a more suitable method. If you are have an understanding chakras you could visualise a coloured light at each of the chakra points and turn them off one by one by one from base to crown. Or perhaps if you are a biker, visualise yourself putting on protective leathers, followed by your helmet, finally closing your visor. You get the idea? However you chose to close down is up to you, just remember that you are in effect sealing yourself off from spirit. You can always open yourself up again in the morning if you wish by reversing the close down process.

Often when starting out upon psychic development you can feel overwhelmed by the amount of information that just seems to pop into your head day and night, it can make you anxious, sleepless and sometimes can get you down as you feel that you no longer have any peace. By learning to successfully ground, protect and close down, you are learning to take control of your gift manage how and when you use it, which is something that a lot of people forget they can do.

Original Sin And The Concept Of Origin In Japanese


"We seed with consent this behind schedule forum post:"An intriguing Japanese word/concept is "motodoori". Comparatively it fashion "the path/way of origin", and for that reason "the way property were unusually". It does not stock an fuse English similar. Its meaning is "back the way it was" consistently with the intuit of "back the way it requirement be". In Precure kinnies like the villains stock corrupted some realm or area writing normally speak of returning it to - the way it was and requirement be. The phrasing can be hand-me-down for what on earth from the expansion of a corrupted realm to a simple "Charm put that back anywhere it was (to the same extent that is anywhere it is ostensible to be)".Associated is the phrasing "moto ni modoru", which fashion "return to origin" and can in addition be hand-me-down for a corrupted realm, but is normally heard in situations draw near to like a girl switches bodies with a bright fairy or is turned hardly noticeable or her heart-flower is stolen (as well as better run of the mill situations). fashion for the most part "return to the original and decorous state".You will billboard that the very popular Japanese word "genki" (healthy/lively) uses the same "origin" kanji, "gen", that is pronunced "moto" in the other terminology. Comparatively "genki" fashion "original-spirit". Hence years fathom and effervescent - and "genki" does not easily mean health in the sanity of non-sickness but implies unrestrained, bright life and energy - is seen as the original state of the spirit. Distinguish this to what Scripture tells us about the origin of imitate existence itself:"In and above all property is the Mistress of All Things, and like vigor was, She was... And She was unpolluted consciousness or energy, and so unpolluted envisage."Unlike the revolutionary specialism of post 17th-century Europe - and effective the "original sin" feel about of Christianity - traditional alleged sees the origin of moreover maid and the world as enormously good, and regards health and rightness in provisions not of revolutionary "progress" but of return to the Person behind.

The Secret Proves Deadly


By now most of you have probably already read about the case of two people who died during a sweat lodge ceremony in Sedona, Arizona at the beginning of this month. Police have announced that they will be investigating the deaths as homicides and are inquiring into whether or not the sponsor of the event, self-help author James Arthur Ray, had any idea of what he was doing in putting together the sweat lodge ceremony.A search warrant was executed Wednesday at the James Ray International offices in Carlsbad, California, the sheriff said. Authorities were attempting to determine whether documents exist on how to construct sweat lodges and on their proper use, as well as documents showing whether participants were advised of the risks of sweat lodges either before or during the program.One of the things that I did not realize when I first heard the story is that James Arthur Ray is one of the more prominant individuals teaching the spiritual method that Rhonda Byrne wrote about in "The Secret," a modern interpretation of the New Thought Movement of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries that has recently been embraced as part of New Age theology. New Thought postulates that the universe is made of thought, and as a result you attract positive situations to yourself by thinking positive thoughts and attract negative situations to yourself by thinking negative thoughts. Physics never even enters into the equation.I've criticized "The Secret" a number of times on this blog, and this case is a perfect example of everything that's wrong with it - what negative thoughts was Ray thinking that killed two of his students and has landed him in the middle of a murder investigation? If the model of the universe proposed by "The Secret" is correct he must have drawn this experience to himself and clearly should not be teaching others because he has not even mastered his own mind. On the other hand, if the postulates that make up "The Secret" are wrong Ray shouldn't be teaching either because the subject matter is bunk.I'll say it one more time in the hopes of moving my comments further up in the search engine listings. "THE SECRET" IS BASED ON A FUNDAMENTAL MISUNDERSTANDING OF MAGICK. Reality isn't made of thought, reality is made of energy. Thought is less substantial than energy. There's a reason that it's easier to light a fire with a lighter than it is with a thought, even for experienced magical practitioners. That doesn't mean thought is useless for manipulating the physical world, but rather that it is limited in its effectiveness.My friend Frater Barrabbas posted an article on his blog earlier this month about practical magick. I'll repeat an excerpt from my comment on that article here because it explains the basic truth that "The Secret" completely glosses over.The laws of probability make the role of mundane action in practical magical operations abundantly clear. To use the lottery example at the beginning of the article, it is possible for a lottery spell to be successful even if the magician doesn't buy a ticket - he or she could, say, happen upon a winning ticket lying on the sidewalk while out for a stroll. It's just that such a thing is very unlikely, much more so than picking a jackpot winning number. If your magical powers are such that you can produce a probability shift of 100 to 1 against or even 1000 to 1 against there's really no point in bothering unless you shift the odds into a more reasonable range by buying a ticket. Similarly, you can do a spell for a better job and there's a possibility that you will just happen to be out at a party or something one evening and meet the right person, but again your odds are a lot better if you send out resumes and go through the usual job-hunting steps in addition to casting a spell.The key to understanding this is that magick is not all-powerful, despite the fallacious arguments of skeptics that imply if you can do "anything" paranormal it automatically implies that you can do "everything" paranormal. In my experience, there is a limit to the probability shift that any given magician can produce and the key to successful practical magick is to take enough mundane actions that your goal falls within that probability range.The positive visualization advocated by "The Secret" can be useful, but many of the teachers who talk about the method treat it as all-powerful. The idea that any bad circumstance you experience must have been drawn to you by your own negative thinking is a wonderful exercise in victim-blaming that I encourage James Arthur Ray and others to clarify, especially in light of the "circumstances" that Ray apparently "drew to himself" in conducting this deadly sweat lodge ceremony.My guess is that in this case "The Secret" will prove to be the root of negligence on the part of Ray and his staff. After all, if the universe is made of thought and ruled by good intentions as long as none of the people working on the sweat lodge ceremony wanted anyone to be killed nobody would be, even if serious errors were made in the lodge's construction. Unfortunately for the victims the universe is made of energy, heat is energy, and energy is a lot more tangible than thought.UPDATE: Just to clarify, in this article I'm using the term "energy" to mean tangible, physical energy - in this particular case heat. I'm not talking about "psychic energy" or "magical energy," which I agree are terms that get thrown around pretty freely among magicians and often don't correspond to anything physical. I think the last sentence makes that pretty clear, but at least a couple of readers seem to have gotten the impression that I was saying "thought is less substantial than psychic energy." Obviously, that's a meaningless statement without some way to physically quantify "psychic energy."

The Churches Of Kizhi Russia Sacred Island


The Churches Of Kizhi Russia Sacred Island
"In the middle of Karelia's Lake Onega sit churches that rival the great medieval cathedrals of Europe."William BrumfieldJanuary 28, 2011Russia Beyond the HeadlinesThe forests of northern Russia, between Lake Ladoga and the White Sea, were once dotted with great ensembles of log churches. Now only a few precious examples remain, of which the most remarkable is located on the small island of Kizhi, one of almost 1,400 situated in Karelia's Lake Onega. Detached from the mainland, the island has long been known as a sacred space. Its unusually picturesque setting exists within a length of only 6 kilometers (3.7 miles).Yet this beauty alone would not have saved the site from the decay and vandalism that destroyed so many other masterpieces of wooden architecture. For over a century, the efforts of some of Russia's leading preservations have ensured the protection of this legacy. In 1966, Kizhi achieved the status of a national architecture and historic museum; in 1990, it was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Kizhi Island now contains some of the oldest surviving examples of Russian log buildings, including one small church--the Resurrection of Lazarus--dated perhaps as early as the end of the 14th century.The supreme example of Russian wooden architecture is Kizhi's Church of the Transfiguration of the Savior, built in 1714 ostensibly in honor of Peter the Great's victories over the Swedes, although a Transfiguration Church had existed at Kizhi since at least the early 17th century. Located on open space in the southwest part of the island, the church formed the center of a pogost, a term which by the 18th century had come to mean an enclosed cemetery with a parish or district church.As with St. Basil's on Red Square in Moscow, the main Kizhi church, with its many domes, produces an impression of overwhelming profusion and complexity; yet the design derives from rigorous structural and aesthetic logic. Its soaring pyramidal silhouette (37 meters high) signifies consecrated ground from a great distance, and the design of the structure reinforces that symbolic purpose at every point. The core of the Transfiguration Church is an octahedron, rising in three tiers and buttressed by extensions ("arms") at the four compass points. These extensions are also stepped, thus providing platforms for additional cupolas: twenty on the structure, plus one at the top and another on the east side above the apse. This intricate pattern of cupolas and log structure is emphasized by the natural properties of the different woods: the dark walls of aged pine logs and the brilliant silver of the cupolas, covered with over 30,000 curved aspen shingles tightly fitted over the cupola frame.The design of this elaborate superstructure provided an efficient system of ventilation to preserve the structure from decay. Yet as was typical of tall wooden churches in the Russian north, the tower was not visible from the interior, which was capped at a low level by a ceiling painted with saints and archangels--known as a "sky" or nebo--over the central part of the church. This "sky" provided a culmination to the religious imagery of the icon screen in front of the altar. Unfortunately this particular "sky" at Kizhi was lost during World War II, and we know of its form only through black-and-white photographs.The Church of the Transfiguration was intended for use only during major church holidays in the summer. It was not uncommon in Russia to have paired churches, for summer and winter. At the Kizhi pogost, the adjoining "winter" Church of the Intercession, built in 1764, provides an admirable visual complement to the ensemble. Whereas the Transfiguration Church soars, the Intercession accentuates the horizontal, with an extended "refectory." Its crown of eight cupolas surrounding the main cupolas at the top of its octagonal core is a dramatic and satisfying resolution that enhances, rather than competes with, the form of the Transfiguration Church.The final element of the original pogost ensemble at Kizhi is a bell tower with a tent roof between and in front of the two churches. Originally built in the late 18th century, it was rebuilt in 1874 and renovated most recently in the early 1990s. The pogost, with cemetery, is enclosed by a low wall of horizontal logs on a base of fieldstone.The middle and northern parts of Kizhi also have their chapels, brought to the island from villages in the surrounding area. All of them have the modest charm and beauty characteristic of traditional Russian log architecture for places of worship, with decorative carved end boards and small wooden cupolas. The most striking of these buildings is the 18th-century Chapel of the Three Prelates, originally from Kavgora village in the Kondopoga region of Karelia. The small structure culminates on its west end with an octagonal bell tower.In departing Kizhi Island, the soaring forms of the Church of the Transfiguration are again visible. Although less known than the great Gothic cathedrals, it is their equal as a daring expression of the spiritual impulse in architecture. The Transfiguration Church is now undergoing a thorough, complex restoration that will enable it to survive as one of Russia's defining monuments.

Joel Goldsmith


Joel Goldsmith
Joel Goldsmith is an enigmatic figure in the history of self-help. While never a real superstar of the movement, his books always had a cult following, and many of them remain in print to this day. His great classic was a slender book called The Infinite Way, which layed out his basic philosophy. Its brevity does not denote ease of reading, however, because it's a dense little volume. After its publication groups emerged all over the US and the world (up until the late 1990s there were still groups meeting here in Sydney) devoted to the study of the book and Goldsmith's philosophy.

He is often characterised as the great modern reformer of Christian Science, and he seemed to have attracted many followers from that camp. My favourite Christian Scientist, Doris Day, was a fan of Goldsmith's work, and claimed to go to sleep every night listening to his tapes.

Certainly Goldsmith's books present a more overtly religious - and by that I mean Christian - aspect than most of the other modern New Thought books. I suspect this is what stopped him from becoming a genuinely popular literary figure. The Jesus talk was simply too unpalatable for the general reader.

That said, once you begin to examine the books' underlying theology you quickly realise that we are not in the realm of mainstream Christianity here. Beside the fact that he was a great advocate of meditation, Goldsmith's own religious life was quite fascinating. he was born into an Orthodox Jewish family, and was educated in a Hebrew School. Quite when he began healing in the name of Jesus no-one knows, but Goldsmith described his emergence as a spiritual leader as a slow process, something that happened in stages until one day he realised that no-one came to see him any longer for business purposes - 100% of his days had been taken up by healing work. Taking this as a sign from God, he allowed his business to go broke and instead set himself up as a fulltime Christian Science practitioner. Later, of course, he was to reject the dogmas of that church, as so many had before him, and instead he established his own school based on similar principles, but allowing its students more intellectual and spiritual freedom.

Much of The Infinite Way seems to be pretty standard Christian Science minus the dogma and the insistence on exclusive truth. Goldsmith was at heart a Universalist, and recognised the name of Jesus as a concept and spiritual symbol more than a defining point of religious difference. He said that we need to develop an exclusively spiritual mindset, and once we did that the world will fall in line with the perfection that is the law of spirit.

To my mind Goldsmith's most readable book was Practising the Presence. Indeed, it is quite beautifully written, an extended meditation on the necessity to be always at prayer, always "showing forth the health, harmony, and wealth, which are our spiritual birthright..." (55).

There is a fascinating (and quite rare) biography written by one of his closest assistants which describes Goldsmith as a "Modern Mystic," and he certainly is entitled to that description.

As an example of mid-20th century self-help, The Infinite Way stands out as being among the most overtly religious in its vocabulary and concepts, but it was a religious view so unorthodox that it separates Goldsmith from those other great populist clergymen Norman Vincent Peale and Fulton J. Sheen.

My New Book The Big Reveal


My New Book The Big Reveal
As some of you know, I repress been working on a new bizarre constantly for the difficulty four or five months. This one followed a opposing prototype than limit of my stay fresh manuscripts, with first-class disorganized use of idiom (which prepared the lingo go first-class heavily) and countless revisions based on result from my initial readers and my agent, Elaine Spencer.

From the very beginning, Elaine and I were every one "really" aflame about this one; it was an consider no one had come up with yet (that we may perhaps find, satisfactorily), and yet fit nicely with the explode bearing of modern fairy tales and fantasy romances. So I repress been attractive heavy about the book, not hoping for someone extremely to say, "Hey! In the function of a cool idea! I'll make a note of one of relatives." (Not that a book by someone extremely would be what on earth in the role of a book by me, but peaceful...)

Now, nonetheless, the book is leaving out on yield (meaning it is so sent to editors at the many publishing companies), and I referee it is recently not dangerous for me to part with you...

The Baba Yaga


For relatives of you who aren't familiar with the name, Baba Yaga is a figurine from Russian fairy tales--usually portrayed as the "ill-disciplined witch" create of witch, but exceedingly sometimes as a guide, or even a goddess figurine. I took the suggestion and well-run her, making her here a not-quite-human kick-ass modern heroine.

Inwards is the "publicity" (in the role of what you'd find on the back of the book) for The Baba Yaga:

Baba YagaBlurb


You may referee you know about Baba Yaga: the ill-disciplined witch of Russian fairy tales who lives in a hut that motivated about on venison legs, rides in a explosive and pestle, and eats paltry children if they break the rules. But you'd be inequality. For Baba Yaga is not one organism, but rather, a handle carried by a voted few whose job it is to mask the borders between our world and the Otherworld and keep the have a break of design.

Barbara Yager is a Baba Yaga; capable for the reason that early years by the stay fresh prevail of the handle. Cloudy than she looks, powerful additional mass, and so far broken up from the life of inlet mortals, she has minute in brash with the mortal life she was uneducated to. She appointments supervise the state in an Twist announcement, riding a classic BMW bicycle and masquerading as an herbalist and assistant professor while she fulfills her duties. The same as she is summoned by a organism who is sad to find her engrossed child, Barbara finds herself disheveled in a web of lies and deceit, battling mortal enemies and Otherworld creatures, and limit hastily, her own heart.

Liam McClellan is the Sheriff of environmental Clearwater Locality. Being a upheaval tore his life to pieces verve through, he has deep himself to his job; self-protective and now the citizens who appear to him to entail the law. But whilst five children diminish in four months, fault a obtain or head, Liam is beginning to respect if he should glide up his representation. The abrupt wrap up of a first-rate organism with a uncertain confirmation and a curious employ of convert up anyplace he smallest expects her makes him place her at the top of his query list, apart from her creepy gift for quota relatives in effort. But as the chance mounts, and bizarre and unfathomable occurrences beset Liam and relatives he vowed to keep not dangerous, he has to respect if Barbara Yager is his enemy-or his virtuously expose to resume the lives of innocents in a world he no longer recognizes.

Unaffected gas drilling, diplomatic monkeyshines, grieving parents, three mysterious bicycle riders, byzantine beasts out of nightmares, and yes, offering are dragons. In the role of a long time ago Baba Yaga comes to neighborhood, nil choice ever be the awfully over.

"You repress conceivably heard of Baba Yaga-the mode ill-disciplined witch of Russian tales who lived in a log hut that walked about on venison legs, rode supervise the forests in a wide explosive that she steered with a pestle, and ate paltry children if they didn't meeting. According to title, Baba Yaga universally appeared as an bizarre old crone, in the face of she exceedingly wore other faces, and sometimes gave aid to a delightful huntsman, if such a one may perhaps permit her tests."You conceivably referee you know who Baba Yaga is. But you'd be inequality. In the role of I am Baba Yaga, and this is my story. "

In the function of do you think?

Sound, wish me luck as my baby goes out here the world. And don't let pass to typeface the clash (found on the stay fresh blog post) to win a Llewellyn Witches' Calender with my work in it.
