For a long time I have known that you love the truth;
it has been a joy and satisfaction to me that we have found one another in this love for truth

To believe your Spiritual Discipline is superior is Fools Gold. —Tiwaz 20120907-2315 rr17-iaa Transcendental
Every Spiritual Tradition has it’s own Dynamics. What may see UnTrue from our Tradition may have inen Spiritual Integrity in another Tradition that escapes our Knowledge. “One Man’s Poison is another Man’s Food.” “One Man’s Fool is another Man’s Food.” Our Mothers are “Superior” to other Mothers because she gave us Birth. Our Home Team is superior because it is our Home Team.
Silence-To-Be, Enlightenment, Cosmic Consciousness, Dharmakaya, Samadhi, Tao etc. etc etc are separate, relative & can be compared from dæm Æ-Stead POV (immanent state point of view) but from dem E-Stead POV (transcendental state point of view) they can be dim Same and both these POV can be also True at dim Same Time. Dær best Approach is thru Deep Respect that “Dir Impossible is just one Possibility”
TRUTH beyond BUTS
Jonathan Kay: Good riddance to Section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act http://fullcomment.nationalpost.com/2012/06/07/jonathan-kay-good-riddance-to-section-13-of-the-canadian-human-rights-act/
MPs vote to drop some hate-speech sections of Human Rights Act http://www.ottawacitizen.com/news/vote+drop+some+hate+speech+sections+Human+Rights/6740459/story.html
One of d Pillars of Spiritual Disciplines is Truth. If u have Hate-Speech Laws u do not have Freedom of Speech. U do not have Truth!
“The way to keep people obedient is to limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow lively debate within that spectrum.” — Chomsky
“BUT” is d Trojan Horse for imposing THOUGHT CONTROL! Every Criminal Regime has Hate-Speech Legislation based on “Freedom of Speech” — BUT – against Hate Speech. If u can control Citizens Thoughts u can control their Actions no matter if u called it “Democracy”, “Socialism” “Nationalism” or “Christianity”. In Stalinist Russia u had Freedom of Speech! U could perpetuate what ever Lies u wanted about d West – BUT – if u questioned Stalin u where a threat. If u where lucky & not one of d 1010 Million starved, beaten or tortured to death, a Judge would commit u instead to a Mental Institution, where u were Lobotomized with Drugs. Punishing Freedom of Thought was not only true in Stalinist Russia, Nasty Deutschland, Communist China and Medieval Europe during d INQUISITION but it is True Today in d West. D only difference is d Type & Degree of Punishment.
Hate Speech was set up here in Canada because d Criminal Regime could not in d Normal Court System prosecute THOUGHTS that challenged their privileged Position. A Healthy Court Systems is based on Freedom of Speech & d Rule of Law. Law that is fairly n honestly applied to all Citizens no matter what their Class, Race or Religion happens to be. D main Problem for d Criminal Regime is that a Healthy Court System is based on “The Truth and nothing but the Truth”. Since d Regime’s Power is based on Lies & Deception they had Parliament set up a quasi-judicial Body, d “Canadian Human Rights Tribunal” that has ruled “Truth is no defense” . In other Words if u contradict or challenge d THOUGHTS of d Regime, even if your Arguments r SOUND n based on TRUTH u will still be persecuted through prosecution. D TRIBUNAL HAD A 100% CONVICTION RATE!
In order for “Canadian Human Rights Tribunal” to look legitimate & give it a Front of Respectability they would Prosecute a wide Range of “Thought Crimes”, that where popular w a Brain Washed Public. Slowly over d Years, d Tribunal started believing it’s own Propaganda & started prosecuting d Thoughts of d Criminal Regime that had set it up. This is when u started hearing in d MSM cries that d Tribunal was unfair & that it was Time to “drop some hate-speech sections of Human Rights Act”.
“Tell me who I can not criticise n I will tell u where d real Power lies.” –Tiwaz
In other Words, d only reason that this Law, Section 13, has now been repealed is that it was now being used against d Criminal Regime that had originally had it in acted. This Criminal Regime wants to be protected by the Law but they do not want to be bond by the Law. They do not want Citizens to prosecute them as Criminals so they control their Thoughts, thru “HATE CRIMES”.
No Organism, be it a Person or a Culture can Spiritually Evolve based on Lies n Deceptions. In d Body it is called Cancer, in a Culture it’s called Crime. Lies n Deception r Viruses that eat away r ability to make Healthy Decisions. D Antidote is Truth without BUTS.
On a deeper Spiritual Level, no matter what a Person does they will continue to be Sheep because it is not din Content of Thoughts that is din deeper Problem but dan Addiction to Thoughts themselves. Paradoxically only when they can Truly Think from dom Ground dos No-Thought can they fully deprogram themselves. This takes Spiritual Disciplines.
Tide to Question Authorities Censorship
One of d 1st Hate Crime Laws, recorded in History, was in acted by Yahweh against Adam & Eve. YAHWEH OR THE HIGHWAY! Keeping your Sheep stupefied in FEAR from acquiring Knowledge of Good and Evil is important in controlling their THOUGHTS. Most Sheep are terrified of their own Thoughts & are programmed with self-righteous HATE to want to kill anyone they feel have HATE Thoughts against their BELIEVES. They are stupefied with Orwellian DOUBLE THINK or what Today’s Psychologists would call Cognitive Dissonance by being programed to believe they are full of LOVE and Compassion because they serve a higher Purpose. This higher Purpose bestows upon them dum Right to lie, steal, torture, rape & murder People who they feel lie, steal, torture, rape & murder People.
No matter what they do they will continue to be Sheep because it is not din Content of Thoughts that is din Problem but dan Addiction to Thoughts themselves. Paradoxically only when they can Truly Think from dom Ground dos No-Thought can they fully deprogram themselves. This takes Spiritual Disciplines.
Yahweh as Bully http://www.jonathantweet.com/jotreligionyahwe.html
And Yahweh commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat, but of the tree of the knowledge of good and bad, you shall not eat of it, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.
Yahweh is lying.
. . .
And the snake said to the woman, “You shall not surely die: For God knows that in the day you eat of it, then your eyes shall be opened, and you shall be as gods, knowing good and bad.”
And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit, and ate, and gave it also to her husband; and he ate. And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. . .
And Yahweh said, “Behold, the man has become as one of us, to know good and bad: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever.” Therefore Yahweh sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from which he was taken. So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden cherubim, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.
First, Yahweh says that Adam and Eve shouldn’t eat the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Bad. He doesn’t say, “Because I command you not to eat the fruit.” He says, “Because it will kill you the very day that you eat it.” That’s not true, but Yahweh says so because he doesn’t want humans eating the fruit and gaining understanding of good and bad. He doesn’t mind them eating the Tree of Life and living forever, so long as they remain ignorant and thus inferior to him and to the other gods of the heavens.
Then the snake, who’s a clever creature but not Satan, tells Eve the truth about the “poisonous” fruit: it won’t kill you, it will make you wise like Yahweh. She and Adam eat the fruit and they see that the snake is telling the truth.
When Yahweh finds out, he’s angry. Like a dysfunctional parent or pagan deity caught in a lie, he punishes Adam and Eve. Paradoxically and unfairly, he punishes them for what they did before they knew good from evil.
As to the Tree of Life, he removes it from the garden not to punish Adam and Eve but because he’s afraid that if they eat its fruit they’ll become too powerful.
As the idea of God has changed over time, the selfish, deceitful, vengeful actions of Yahweh have become unbelievable. A veil of misinterpretation has been drawn over the story, so that by the time anyone reads Genesis for themselves they’ve already been coached to misunderstand it.
“The more corrupt the state, the more numerous the laws.” — Tacitus rr17_Law
Dur Earth’s Orbit around dum Sun is slightly elliptical. Therefore, dur Distance between dum Earth und dum Sun varies throughout dum Year. At its nearest Point on dum Ellipse that is dun Earth’s Orbit around dum Sun, dur Earth is 91,445,000 miles (147,166,462 km) from dum Sun. Thus Point in dum Earth’s Orbit is known as dum PERIHELION. Dur Perihelion this Year will be at 01:00 January 5 2012 UT Time or 20:00 Toronto Time. This is dun Time dom Xoting celebrates New Years.
“To know that all has failed is the beginning of a new journey. To know that “All that I have achieved is lost” is the beginning of a new search for something that cannot be lost. When one is utterly disillusioned with the world and all its successes, only then one becomes spiritual.” –Osho, rr17uuo

“You could not do better than to go where it is dark, that is, unconsciousness.”
– Meister Eckhart, 14th century rr13iaa
Many of d Asatru n “Pagan” Believes r similar to d Xoting but there is a Fundamental Difference. In d Xoting Yule Tide, d Winter Solstice does not represent Fear, that d Sun will not rise again. D Holy of Holiest of Days does not Center around d Death n Rebirth of d Sun.
Our Sun is just one of countless Suns in this Universe never Mind d Arguments about countless other Suns in other Dimensions n other Paranormal Universes. Our Sun, like our Squirrely Intellect, occults No-Thought. No-Thought is d first Meditative Stage to Xothood (Cosmic Consciousness, Enlightenment, Dharmakaya etc.).
D True Power of d Universe is occulted by our Sun. It is d Darkness that gave our Suns, Planets, Moons etc. etc. etc. LIFE. “Seeing the Light” actually blinds us to a greater Reality.
One of the NDEs reported to Kenneth Ring (1980) was from a roman who said she had been enveloped in “a very peaceful blackness. . . a soft, velvet blackness,” and I know just what she meant-but I feel the need to say something stronger to do justice to my experience. A phrase that has since come to mind occurs in an ancient alchemical text; we now know that alchemy was concerned more with psychological and spiritual changes than chemical ones, and in one old book it is said that there occurs a point in the transformation where the operator “falls into the black sun” and experiences “a palpable absence of light” (an interesting psychological anticipation of “black holes”?). The darkness I experienced was in some extraordinary way radiant, and I cannot help thinking of the poem Night by Henry Vaughan, with its strange line: “There is in God, some say, a deep but dazzling darkness.“
Another man reported to Raymond Moody that he found himself “just floating and tumbling through space,” and then added, “I was so taken up with this void that I just didn’t think of anything else.” The idea that a void could possibly be interesting would have seemed nonsense to me before, but it now makes total sense. In fact, the state I am trying to describe seems to defy all ordinary canons of logic, and my deepest resonance is to Buddha’s classic description of Nirvana, which simply piles one contradiction upon another:
Monks, there exists that condition wherein is neither earth nor water nor fire nor air; wherein is neither the sphere of infinite space nor of infinite consciousness nor of nothingness nor of neither-consciousness-nor-unconsciousness; where there is neither this world nor a world beyond nor both together nor moon-and-sun. Thence, monks, I declare there is no coming to birth; thither is no going; therein is no duration; thence is no falling; there is no arising. It is not something fixed, it moves not on.
(Pali Canon, 1968)
If my POV is from d Earth, from d Squirrely Intellect, from rr13æih, then I will Fear d Darkness n embrace d Light. If I have no POV, if I am grounded in No-Thought, in Darkness, in d Black Sun, in Void, in rr18uoh, then I AM. Winter Solstice represents for d Xoting, d longest Night of d Year, which allows d Spirit of d Universe to impregnate d Earth w XotHood. If we ritually participate in this we leave myself open to be impregnated w d Seed of XotHood. Repeated Yule Rituals, waters d Quickening to our XotHood. –Tiwaz 201012202205 rr05eoh
