There are many reasons why people do and don’t follow the crowd when making decisions. We discuss the scientific data behind the reason for people’s choice.

Mind is a beautiful servant, but a dangerous master.

November 30 2020 at 1:30 am PST is a full Moon in Gemini, and a lunar eclipse at 1:43 am PST. Air sign Gemini rules the 3rd house of communication, ideas, and relatives. Time to express your ideas and communicate your feelings during this full Moon, and during the next two weeks as the full Moon wanes. Topics that were hidden, or it was just not the right time to speak about them, can come to light during this eclipse.
Mercury in perceptive Water sign Scorpio sextiles Jupiter and Saturn in earthy Capricorn. This is favorable for overall planning with clarity of purpose. Timing is good to make practical changes, and to communicate about important matters. People are more tolerant of different viewpoints and have more intellectual curiosity. These Mercury sextiles are also very beneficial for business.
Venus in Scorpio is opposite Uranus in Taurus. Anticipate unexpected surprises in relationships…

passe ce vipulaṃ sukhaṃ,

If by renouncing a lesser happiness
one may realize a greater happiness,
let the wise one renounce the lesser,
having regard for the greater.

Appaṃ vata jīvitaṃ idaṃ!
Oraṃ vassasatāpi miyyati,
yo cepi aticca jīvati,
atha kho so jarasāpi miyyati.
How short this life!
You die this side of a century,
but even if you live past,
you die of old age.
Sutta Nipāta 4.810
Translated from Pāli by Thanissaro Bhikkhu
Known as The Gospel Of The Holy 12 or The Gospel of the Perfect Life, translated from the original Aramaic by Emmanuel Swedenborg, and edited by a Disciple of the Master, this was the book that launched my career into Sacred Mathematics.
This Essene Bible contained some rare drawings of the Magic Squares of 3, 7 and 11.
The “Magic Square Of Eleven Perfected” (M.Sq 11×11) was signed in the Essene Bible with the cryptic words:
“Ecclesiae Militantis Sigillum” which roughly translates as “The Church’s Seal of the Militant” as if it represents a Shield with Celestial Protective Powers or a Sigil of Defense.
Extracted from Lection LXV111, but preserved in its original 1974 presentation to show that nothing has been altered, this Magic Square of 11 x11, as found in the index of the bible illustrates what the Lord in symbol taught to his disciples of the bringing forth of Order out of Disorder, Perfection out of Imperfection, and out of Deficiency Fullness.
The square shown in the bible has some fine print that says:
“33 Summations of 671. Sum Total of Terms, 7,381”
Inside this Essene Square are some highlighted lines. There are 2 crosses, each of 11 cells or numbers that are highlighted, and it shows that the central vertical 7 cells in the middle of the square (viz: 100+49+121+61+1+73+13) plus 2 cells to the right (viz: 111+51) and 2 cells to the left (viz: 11+71) of the central cell which is Number 61, constitute 11 cells in a Christian Cross that also sum to the Constant or Magic Square Sum of 671.
There is also another cross of 11 Cells formed with 7 going horizontally which you can see.

In this gripping lecture Alan Watts points to ego as the illusion, the mask we carry around serving as a layer of protection for our feelings. He also challenges the perceptions and assumptions we hold as pertaining to ourselves, our religious beliefs, and the universe as a whole.
Alan Wilson Watts known commonly as Alan Watts was a British philosopher (1915 – 1973) who popularised Eastern philosophy for a Western audience. Watts became an Episcopal priest in 1945, then left the ministry in 1950 and moved to California, where he joined the faculty of the American Academy of Asian Studies.
Alan Watts’ ideas and philosophy have primarily eastern roots which through his talks and lectures he ever so eloquently presents to a western audience.
In this video Alan Watts talks about the continuous chatter that goes on in our minds. He explains to his audience what all they could experience (or not experience) if they simply stopped talking to themselves.
Alan Watts also explain the real purpose of meditation and the process one can undertake to reach a meditative state.
The outcome will be worth the process. You’re in the middle of your manifestation right now. You know this already so don’t fear the unknown. Trust yourself. Listen to your intuition! You will come out on top! You will be okay. If you only knew where your current situation is taking you, you would be celebrating and saying thank you. Every single thing is working in your favor. Even the things that might disturb your peace is teaching you to come back to your center. All and any changes you’re experiencing is expanding and refining your spirit to trust more, to believe, to let go, to surrender, and also to welcome. You can forget this when you’re in the moment. You can forget that you are living what you thought, felt, and spoke into existence. You might not even realize on a subtle level why things are happening the way they are till you look back and smile to realize you needed that for your evolution. You needed that for your clarity and peace. You needed that to reach new heights. That’s all every situation is. The point is to keep reminding yourself when you are caught up in the midst of things that everything is working out for you. Pay attention to the pattens of your life. Look back to learn and see how the universe brought everything together even if the pieces are still coming together right now. Pay attention to the divine guidance happening in your favor right now. Smile about it and breathe. It’s all okay. Release the need to overthink and overwhelm yourself with worries. It’s all okay. Let this bring you inner peace a clarity right now that creates a positive shift within you. It’s all okay.
Manasā ce pasannena
bhāsati vā karoti vā,
tato naṃ sukhamanveti
Mind precedes all things;
mind is their chief, mind is their maker.
If one speaks or does a deed
with a mind that is pure within,
happiness then follows along
like a never departing shadow.
Gemstones of the Good Dhamma, compiled and translated by Ven. S. Dhammika
Practice being. Practice at odd moments, allowing the self simply to be aware, and resting in that deep peace that is awareness of the Creator. You shall certainly get lost in the sea of confusion again and again. But that too is illusion. Trust that heart within, and as you are given the grace to do so, work with those concepts of being and doing until you begin to have a lucid idea of what it is to be yourself. This is an art of profound moment and we encourage each of you to take it up. In your hopes and in your prayers, surrender all to the Creator and know, in confidence and in quiet, that that which is needed for you to learn and for you to serve will come to you. May you see all things with the eyes of love.

Warm greetings and happy Aloha Tuesday to each of you! Strive to reach the highest. Peace be with you.
Psychometry is one of many forms of scrying – or, in non-psychic terms, a way of seeing something that cannot typically be seen. Psychometry relies on touch and tangible, physical objects.
Psychometry is reading the energy of a physical object. The reading you will usually get will have to do with the object’s history. It might be:
- any of the other senses associated with memories and feeling
The object will have its own history and will also give you an idea of the history of its owner.
How To Do Telekinesis and Move Objects With Your Mind
Telekinesis (TK), also known as Psychokinesis (PK), is the ability to move an object using your mind. This mental power allows you to levitate or move objects at a distance. We see this sort of thing in movies, however, is it something that we as humans can actually do?
“Bad energy” is a universal term to describe situations or people who are not to our liking. We use the term a lot, but do we really understand it?
