In recent months I have seen three women on the streets of Austin wearing full burkas with nothing but their eyes showing. I used to believe the garment was only worn in countries where the Taliban required it, and now this. I don't know if our planet is a eukaryotic cell that is in the process of mitosis and the human race is going to experience a bifurcation process when the split occurs, or if there is only one mother earth for all times, and what we see is all there will ever be. Regardless of which is the reality, something is obvious: Change is coming. It's inevitable. And it's coming fast.
If the eukaryotic cell hypothesis is correct, and this planet is splitting into two, reductum ad absurdum logic leads me to imagine that all women will be wearing burkas on one planet and no burkas will be needed on the other. If the wheel of karma is simply turning, and the increasing number of women wearing burkas on the streets of Austin is an omen of things to come, there will be a whole lot more women wearing burka's all over America in the near future.
I know we have all been taught to celebrate diversity, but this is not a good thing. They circumcise teenage girls against their will without any anesthesia in areas of the world where women are required to be veiled, and teenage boys are more likely to be sodomized, especially those who are exceptionally handsome with relatively effeminate facial features.
Motherhood is the holy matrix. The feminine aspect of humanity is the fiber that holds society together. The mother's womb is what contains the human seed and brings forth new life. My favorite Guru once said that her greatest fear is that she dreads to be like a nun. I now understand completely. Containment of the seed is what insures a balanced and stable society, yet very few people are walking the walk these days. The marriage license was an idea that was conceived to protect women who are naturally hardwired to be faithful and devoted, and preserve the integrity of the matrix.
The healthy masculine understands how the masculine and feminine essences serve one another to create a balanced and stable community. The healthy masculine understands the importance of the mother as the matrix of society and desires to do his part in providing a safe container for the goddess energy. The healthy masculine has liberated himself from the compulsion to keep searching for a sexual relationship that is transcendently more satisfying than the last by his desire to insure the holy matrix is protected and safe. Countries that require women to wear veils claim the law is to protect them. Apparently they don't believe men can be trusted. And now there are veils in Austin.
The healthy masculine understands that a committed partnership based on mutual devotion to God is what makes transcendence possible, brings a relationship into perfect alignment, and creates the possibility of mutual simultaneous sexual pleasure of equal measure that opens the portal to new dimensions in the joyful land. True love, that which understand a relationship can be the vehicle for transformation into new paradigms of reality, and that sex is key to the portal door, are the pioneers who will colonize a new dimension in this new found land of joy.
Pairing is the natural way of the plan that has already been established and laid out for us by the creative urge. We can accept it or reject it. Even triploid lesbian lizards that clone themselves pair up and fertilize their own eggs. They don't have orgies. To think otherwise is to defy the plan of creation that has already been set in motion for this planet. We have two eyes for a reason. They are the windows of the soul. Sex as meditation, is just like any other form of meditation, the more time you spend focusing and concentrating your energy in one place, the deeper it will take you.
Deep and profound intimacy is the prerequisite to transformational sex. An investment of time, devotion, trust, attention and commitment are required. Women fake orgasms because they don't want to hurt men's egos. They fake orgasms because they don't know what an orgasm is and they know that men prize orgasmic women. Real orgasmic capacity will not increase until the truth is told in this regard, the plan of creation is respected, the natural law is understood, and the masculine and feminine essences joyfully fulfill their roles, protectively re-pairing the matrix in service to humanity as a whole.
There are worlds where polyamory is the natural way. The world of the fly is one of them. They have thousands of eyes, lay eggs and make offspring by the millions. Their larva serves as maggots to eat the dead rotting flesh of corpses. Is that the direction we are headed when the wheel turns?
Here is something I found on sacred texts on Pow Wow magic that is supposed to work on worms:
A good Remedy for Worms, to be used for men as well as for Cattle:
Mary, God's Mother, traversed the land,
Holding three worms close in her hand;
One was white, the other was black, the third was red.
This must be repeated three times, at the same time stroking the person or animal with the hand; and at the end of each application strike the back of the person or the animal, to wit: at the first application once, at the second application twice, and at the third application three times; and then set the worms a certain time, but not less than three minutes.
I wonder what it means by set the worms at a certain time? Usually Pow Wow was also linked with herbal treatments, this ritual would be the equivalent of going to the doctors office, seeing the doctor with his stesthscope, and then being given the medicine. Who knows, maybe it was bloodroot.
Unfortunatley they only wrote down the ritual, not the herbs, but what goes on mentallypsychically is at least as important as any physical change.
Which is why I am glad you are here, you have helped me greatly on my journey.
I am glad you are staying on curezone, you have helped many.
I am going to post my favorite mediatation towards the light, I think it's what has really helped me change myself physcially. I had to get rid of the psychic intrustions before I could effectively kill any intruding parasite.
Cultivating a conscious relationship with the source of your being, that which giveth and taketh away the life force energy, is the key to ultimate success in any endeavor that is worth making. Thank you for sharing information about Pow Wow healing. Wish we knew what the herbs were.
There are men like that whether you cover your face or not. People have been in the gutter since the dawn of men, and putting a veil over your eyes isn't going to make you safe. Do you really believe that hiding yourself will change the nature of a man?
The best way to handle the world out there is to become informed, strong, and confident. Personally, if a person wants to speak with me, but doesn't uncover their face to do it, I find it disrespectful to me, and will tell the person so.
You don't need to be an embassador for Islam, or to stick up for all of it in its entirity.
I know it is hard when you come from a different group and people are constantly criticising your faith that you feel the need to defend it. But, there is something deeply wrong with how women are treated in the world, and in Islam the burka is an example of it. The Burka is not empowering or protecting. The Burka is a attempt to squash the feminine energy and to stomp it out. This is just a scam that you have been brainwashed with and you know this deep down.
"Further let me say that women in Islam to not talk to men other than thru business or a medical reason so if anyone told me I will not talk to you unless you uncover, I would turn and not talk. I am doing all this for Allah not for the pleasure of any man."
Just so you know, I am a woman, not a man. That you would choose to remain covered and not speak to me...so be it, I am just saying that to me it is a sign of disrespect. It is sad to me that the result of your meeting this man makes you afraid, instead of angry. And if you wear the veil, and it still happens, perhaps it would just be best for you to stay in your house, hidden away. That way you will be as safe as you can be.
You say we may not understand another person's religion but with knowledge maybe we can be tolerant. In my country, my opinion is that people/government have become over-tolerant to the point where my country's values and morals are being undone by other people's religions/cultures, and are becoming second to them or lost to them. To wear a burka or cover over the face of a woman, in my view, just demeans all the strides that woman have made to gain rights and worth in my society. I believe that my country should change its laws to disallow the wearing of the burka to conform with the morals of our society. Any person that doesn't want to follow that rule can go or stay to where the wearing of the burka is acceptable.
One person says not to be an ambassador for Islam the next expects her to hold up the dignity of women everywhere. Where does Mo123 fit into all of these opinions?
If I am not an ambassador of Christianity then I'm not a Christian.
19Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, 20for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.
I don't hear anyone complaining about Nuns...heck, they may have a gun under all that garb...please give Sara a break, she is the most easy to talk to (about religion) Muslim, I have ever spoken with.
There are many catholic nuns who are wearing shorter skirts and I believe some of them have even gotten rid of the head covering. I suspect it is because they know that hiding women to such a degree is feeding the hunger of the spirit of lust.
"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." Or what religion they practice.
I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.
Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity.
But one hundred years later, the Negro still is not free. One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years later, the Negro is still languished in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land. And so we've come here today to dramatize a shameful condition.
In a sense we've come to our nation's capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the "unalienable Rights" of "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note, insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked "insufficient funds."
But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. And so, we've come to cash this check, a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom and the security of justice.
We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of Now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time to lift our nation from the quicksands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood. Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God's children.
It would be fatal for the nation to overlook the urgency of the moment. This sweltering summer of the Negro's legitimate discontent will not pass until there is an invigorating autumn of freedom and equality. Nineteen sixty-three is not an end, but a beginning. And those who hope that the Negro needed to blow off steam and will now be content will have a rude awakening if the nation returns to business as usual. And there will be neither rest nor tranquility in America until the Negro is granted his citizenship rights. The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nation until the bright day of justice emerges.
But there is something that I must say to my people, who stand on the warm threshold which leads into the palace of justice: In the process of gaining our rightful place, we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again, we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force.
The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to a distrust of all white people, for many of our white brothers, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny. And they have come to realize that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom.
We cannot walk alone.
And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead.
We cannot turn back.
There are those who are asking the devotees of civil rights, "When will you be satisfied?" We can never be satisfied as long as the Negro is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality. We can never be satisfied as long as our bodies, heavy with the fatigue of travel, cannot gain lodging in the motels of the highways and the hotels of the cities. We cannot be satisfied as long as the negro's basic mobility is from a smaller ghetto to a larger one. We can never be satisfied as long as our children are stripped of their self-hood and robbed of their dignity by a sign stating: "For Whites Only." We cannot be satisfied as long as a Negro in Mississippi cannot vote and a Negro in New York believes he has nothing for which to vote. No, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until "justice rolls down like waters, and righteousness like a mighty stream."¹
I am not unmindful that some of you have come here out of great trials and tribulations. Some of you have come fresh from narrow jail cells. And some of you have come from areas where your quest -- quest for freedom left you battered by the storms of persecution and staggered by the winds of police brutality. You have been the veterans of creative suffering. Continue to work with the faith that unearned suffering is redemptive. Go back to Mississippi, go back to Alabama, go back to South Carolina, go back to Georgia, go back to Louisiana, go back to the slums and ghettos of our northern cities, knowing that somehow this situation can and will be changed.
Let us not wallow in the valley of despair, I say to you today, my friends.
And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal."
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
I have a dream today!
I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of "interposition" and "nullification" -- one day right there in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.
I have a dream today!
I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, and every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight; "and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together."²
This is our hope, and this is the faith that I go back to the South with.
With this faith, we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith, we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith, we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.
And this will be the day -- this will be the day when all of God's children will be able to sing with new meaning:
My country 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing.
Land where my fathers died, land of the Pilgrim's pride,
From every mountainside, let freedom ring!
And if America is to be a great nation, this must become true.
And so let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire.
Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York.
Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania.
Let freedom ring from the snow-capped Rockies of Colorado.
Let freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of California.
But not only that:
Let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia.
Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee.
Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi.
From every mountainside, let freedom ring.
And when this happens, when we allow freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual:
I'm sure when you think about it, you don't really want to pass legislation requiring 'politically correct' dress:)
Oh, and I tried to vote no to your post because I disagree, and that got erased, so not everybody agrees with you:)
I bet you didn't think this one completely through.
Why on earth does wearing clothes required by a religious faith undermine women's rights? How about the Hari Krishnas? Or the Mormons? (They have to wear garments, special underwear that for a long time was considered protective of evil.)
Or make the Menonites shave off their beards, or the Amish join the 20th century? Or make the Hassidic jews wear something other than black? Both Menonite women and Amish women wear those wierd little hats because they have to keep their heads covered, because of their religious beliefs, can't have that.
Then we've got the pagans who don't wear anything. And the Catholics, where the Nun's wear habits which were standard women's wear at the time of Christ. And there are people like the Navajo, where traditional women's dress is modeled after what the officers wives wore in the 1880's.
And what are you going to do about drag queens and exotic dancers? They don't wear enough clothing, and it's too sexy, so that could be construed as anti-womens rights.
I could go on forever, I'm just puzzled. I thought that our country was founded so that we could have freedom of religion.
I thought that women's right's meant that we could decide for ourselves what we could do with our lives, including practicing a religion?
I will report there is a bug in the agree/disagree voter dilly on the webmaster.
I have not tinkered with the votes or changed anything. If the two of you will report exactly what happened, it will be easier to find and fix.
Thanks, interesting reading. I have had a horrible time sending American girls to fight in Iraq, I really worry about how they will be treated if they are taken prisoner. I recently had two customers that I've known for years go into the Army after graduating from High School, both a couple of smart, good kids, both girls, but I would rather see them worrying about going to Prom than learning how to drive tanks.
Particularly to fight in the middle east. I gather from these articles that the Burka is specific to Afganistan, it does sound like it would be horrible to be required to wear one. Choosing to do what you want to do as a free citizen is much different than being required to dress a certain way. I don't want us to become what we hate, that's easy to do. All I can say is God Bless the bill of rights.
