The Satanic Verses Revisited

Salman Rushdie’s novel “The Satanic Verses” was published in 1988, so it will be unfamiliar to most of my readers. They may recall that the Ayatollah Khomeini issued a fatwa (decree) for Mr. Rushdie’s death because of the book’s alleged blasphemies against Muhammad’s family. But the Satanic verses themselves predate Mr. Rushdie’s work by 14 centuries. They are to be found in the Qur’an in Sura an-Najm 53:19-22.

Was the black stone in the side of the Kaaba ever white?

The black stone in the side of the Kaaba, apparently a meteorite, must be familiar to everyone who has visited the Kaaba online. An image search will also bring up innumerable pictures of pilgrims to Mecca who are kissing the stone while circumambulating the Kaaba. The tradition of kissing the stone is thought to have begun with Muhammad himself. According to a pious legend that is still believed, the stone was once white but became black over time as it…

Further explanation of the nature body connection

It is really hard trying to explain in diagrams, but it's pretty easy to explain in numbers. So first is the seed (zero), then the line (one) Then the two circles (vesica pisces), the four and finally the eight. You can see this system in I-Ching aswell.

Let's look at the making of a human. First you have the head (zero), then the spine (one), the brain (two), shoulders and legs (four) and lastly elbows/hands and knees/feet. Now the cell division during pregnancy. First the female…

Trying to explain the human body/nature connection

I have been thinking a lot how things in life work and I think I can explain some stuff, but it is not easy to understand. So pay close attention.

So, let's start with the beginning. In the beginning there was a seed, that exploded into two. With the explosion two mushroom clouds emerged, the tree of knowledge of good/crown and evil/roots. These two were twisting in opposite directions (yin/yang) and caused the churning of the milk ocean (milky way/universe).

So first the aleph…

A Celebration for Imbolc

We're at the midpoint between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox. Perfectly natural to want to jump up and down and start acting like Spring is Here! Folly, pure folly! Watch out if the weather is fine on Imbolc - you might find yourself shoveling the driveway on Eostara!

But before that, let's take some time to honor the Goddess Brigid, the Triple Goddess of Poetry, Healing and Smithcrafting.And we'll enjoy some Tres Leches cake as well!

Be well.…

Life Changes

Last Tuesday I started my 3rd year of teaching at a community college. This year, I am the only professor teaching Western Civilization I and II. Luckily, there is little interference from administration beyond my class schedule and classroom assignments. (Though I would gladly shoot the bookstore manager who has never yet ordered enough textbooks for all of my students by the first day of classes.)

I try, where possible, to emphasize that Judeo-Christianity is not the *only* viable…

Astral Intoxication. By,- Mike j Hughes

The'' Bath Party''?, from my own research has its origins in Nazi Germany. I am a student of the occult, and I have done my deep research on this subject. The Group of evil men , the ''inner circle'' are the reincarnation of some of the Atlantean Black Magicians. As well we have the incarnation of Members who were Adepts of the ''Good Law''. During the Atlantean War, ...the whole thing { war } came to a stalemate so far as the war on the physical planes were concerned…

The Buddha Instead of Zeus, Maitreya Instead of Apollo

In my sophomore year of high school I responded to the challenge implicit in the words of my history teacher---a Roman Catholic priest of the Oblate Order---when he claimed that Stoicism was not sufficient for humanity because it relied too much upon reason and promised little happiness for the heart . . . I went straight to the library and checked out a copy of the "Meditations" of Marcus Aurelius and began to read it. That was the last time that I even considered Christianity while trying to… Continue

There is a place called The Edge
A place between Comfort and Pain
Maybe it also means being
Comfortably Numb
Like the feeling I get from medicating
By Consuming Cannabis
Absorbing the CBD and THC
One for The Healing
The other for The High

Are you among the Shiny Happy People? Or does the thought make you fear that you could be labled a fuzzy bunny Wiccan? Perhaps you are genuinely happy with your Dark Magicks!


Happiness is amorphous. It's hard to define, and sometimes it's hard to know if we really have it. But when we DO have happiness in our lives it truly is a Shiny thing.


So this week we're going to look at just what is meant by "happines", and we'll look at it from different perspectives -…

Welcome to the bar Randy Jackson's solo debut is bass-infusive & all-inclusive

But, dig this dawg's bass pedigree: Housebroken as a puppy by Chuck Rainey, dressed one of the greats of '70s fusion, unleashed as a first-call session bassist on loads of '80s and '90s radio hits, road-dog with Journey and Mariah Carey. But there's that whole flip side, the unique perspective Jackson has gained as a producer extraordinaire and all round music impresario. If it comes to music, Randy has the insight and experience to navigate the twisting…

Kelipot - The world of shells

Let's talk about shells. We all have shells physical and mentally, although all lies in the mental.

Let's say you want to climb a mountain, what do you do?

Train. Ok now what is training, it's an actual thing, but doing this training is overcoming our mental hindrances of slacking off, or being afraid. Whatever...

So that is when we begin so sit inside a shell. Now what is a shell. First I thought about it like a glass bowl or something hard to get through, but now I…

All Along the Watchtowers

All Along the Watchtowers


We've all done it; we've created Sacred Space by calling the Spirits of the Four Directions. We stand at each direction and draw the appropriate pentagram and we Invoke the Spirits that have the appropriate character.


But where does all that mumbo jumbo come from? Some say Gerald Gardner, which is correct to a point. Others say that Witches have been doing that on their own and in secret, like, forever - which is really not at…

The First one struck me on the chest..over my heart

I took a step back confused, but

My heart kept beating

The Second one struck me in the exact same spot

I felt like I was slammed back into a brick wall, but

My heart kept beating

The Third one sucker punched me directly over my heart

I imagined little cracks appearing all over my heart

As I dropped to one knee, but got back up because

My heart kept beating

The Fourth one's punch felt like a…

Learning Tarot

I picked up a pack of tarot cards months ago and I've done some readings on myself during ritual and it was very interesting but i was refering to the card meanings from information I found online.  Now currently ive become very interested in becoming skilled in tarot.  I've been practising witchcraft for quite some time now and I want to expand my skills starting with the tarot.  I purchased a book by 'Skye Alexander" on learning tarot.  The book is great so far and learning the meanings of…

The Philosopher's Stone

Just what IS the Philosopher's Stone? Where does it come from? Is it even a Stone?

This question has been bothering people for generations. Some people just give up and say it's just a lot of poetic rhetoric. Others say, "No, look! I've done it! I've got it right here!"

Some say it's all Devilry, others say it's all God stuff. Well, you can choose as we try to sort it all out.

Some of the music you'll hear on this weeks show include…

How fast can your heart run from responsibility?

Are you old yet?

How old do you think are you?

I think I turned old after staying to long in my old skin.

I need to shed it and get reborn by the eye of eywa. Trees can't shed their skin, so they grow a new.

The old returns to dust. The New annointed glows in full glory.

Can you get reborn? No. Everyone ages, but we can turn from the old age into a new one.

Fire keeps on burning if you add new fuel. This fuel died, but it gets renewed by keeping it…
