Apollo

The Birth and Song of Apollo
Latona our Goddess was swollen heavy with the seed of Heaven. She crossed the Tigris-Euphrates River in the pangs of labour. As she reached the distant shore, Her water broke, causing the first life-giving flood of inundation. Clutching the earth, she cried – and at that cry all worlds were silenced. Latona’s fingers marking the sand, and then arose the Sons of Earth, who danced the dance of sword and shield.
In the course of time, Latona gave birth to the Moon Diana and to the Sun Apollo. They were the Twin Wolves ever by the side of our Mistress of the Night.
The isles of Greece! the isles of Greece!
Where burning Saphho loved and sung,
Where grew the arts of war and peace,
Where Delos rose and Phoebus sprung!
To the light and rays of the Mighty Sun.
Protected by Jupiter and Neptune alike
Bring his son to this Earth to heal Mankind.
The Golden Wolf of The Sun is he,
Sol Invictus, Apollo, Phoebus, Delphinus and Lucifer,
Bringer of Light, healer to all, poet, musican
Apollo is of all
As upon this night of honour to Apollo,
We stand before He, our God, our Sun God
We venerate, honour, work and serve he.
As his rays now again to awaken and to rise,
Let the Sun God Awaken and been so seen by all eyes.
As it is our song to thee Apollo, Phoebus, Sol Invictus, Lucifer
We honour thee.
Hymn to Apollo
How Apollo’s laurel sapling shakes!
How the whole temple shakes! Away, away with the wicked!
It must be Phoebus kicking at the door with his fair foot.
Do you not see? The Delian palm nods gently,
All of a sudden; the swan sings beautifully in the air.
Bolts of the doors thrust yourselves back.
Keys–open the doors! For the god is no longer far away.
So, young men, prepare yourselves for singing and dancing.
Apollo appears not to all, only to the good.
He who sees him is great; who does not is lowly.
We will see you, Worker from Afar, and we will never be lowly.
Let the cithara not be silent.
Nor your step noiseless with Apollo approaching, you children,

Invocation of the Moon

moon

Hail to you oh, Goddess, the Moon, blessed lady, fortunate, cold

and moist, temperate and beautiful. Of all the planets you are the

head and key, your movement is smooth, you have shining light, lady

of happiness and joy, of good words, of good fame, of the power to

bless.

You are the lover of law and ponder the things of the world, and

your thought is subtle. You love joyful singing and enjoy joking and

love, you are the lady of ambassadors and messages and of the

revealing of secrets. You are high and noble, you are nearer to us

than the other planets, you are more powerful than all of them and

bright; you bring good and evil, you connect the planets to one

another, you transfer their light, you control everything through your

goodness.

And everything in the world is adorned by your ornament and

by your judgment all is judged. You begin all things, you are their

end. You above all planets have nobility and honor. And in this way

I call upon you.

I conjure you by [all Buddhas & Bodhisattvas] and by Celan and

Silija’il, who are the angels God has set over you to complete your

effects,

I invoke you by all your names; in Arabic, Camar [Qamar]; in

Latin, Luna; in Persian, Mehe [Mah]; in Greek, Zamahyl [Sam’a’il];

in Indian, Cerim [Suma]; in Roman, Celez [Selene], have mercy on

me and receive my humble petition, fill this talisman with your

power, with your spirit, with your pneuma, look with favor on us,

help us to be successful, and to be happy, healthy and safe. Thanks

be unto you, O Moon!

Sophia (Wisdom) in the Celsus Library in Ephesus

Sophia

By Giordano Bruno 1548-1600

“The divine Sophia have I loved and sought from my youth; I have desired her to be my spouse.  Ever have I loved and her beauteous radiant form.  Ever have I prayed that she might be sent to abide with me, that she might work with me to the end that I might know what I lacked and what in me God would find acceptable.  And since she had ever known and understood, had guided me in all my life’s activity, I am persuaded that even after death she will ever keep me safe, wrapped securely in her watchful constant love.”

 

Sophia; Goddess of Wisdom Bride of God, by Matthews, Caitlin; pg 251

Sublime Generosity, Rumi

 venus

 

I was dead, then alive,

Weeping then laughing.

 

The power of love came into
me,

And I became fierce like a
lion,

Then tender like the evening
star.

 

He said, “You’re not mad
enough.

You don’t belong in this
house.”

 

I went wild and had to be tied
up.

He said, “Still not wild
enough

To stay with us.”

 

I broke through another
layer

Into joyfulness.

 

He said, “It’s not enough

I died.

 

He said, “You’re a clever little
man,

Full of fantasy and
doubting.”

 

I plucked out my feathers and became a
fool.

He said, “Now you’re the candle

For this assembly.”

 

But I’m no candle. Look!

I’m scattered smoke.

 

He said, “You are the sheikh the
guide.”

But I’m not a teacher. I have no
power.

 

He said, “You already have
wings.

I cannot give you wings.

 

But I wanted his wings

I felt like some flightless
chicken.

 

Then new events said to me.

“Don’t move.  A sublime generosity is

Coming toward you.

 

And old love said, “Stay with
me.”

 

I said, “I will.”

 

You are the fountain of the sun’s
light.

I am the willow shadow on the
ground.

You make my raggedness
silky.

 

The soul at dawn is like darkened
water

That slowly begins to say Thank you, Thank you.

 

This is the sunset, again, Venus
gradually

Changes into her moon and then the whole
night sky.

 

This coms of smiling back

At your smile.

 

The chess master say nothing,

Other than moving the silent chess
piece.

 

That I am part of the ploys

Of this games makes me

Amazing happy.

A Rant

It saddens me to see that so many people today are showing the fact they are Alturists, an alturist is a person who as Leo Martello describes in his book How to Prevent Psychic Blackmail a person who puts his own troubles, problems for what is happening to them, responsibilities onto others they do this because they have no Respect for anyone least themselves.  The feel that they do not have to deal with their “Karma” which is a Sanskrit word meaning “action”.  When we speak, when we act, when we as Individuals do anything it is not the responsibility of others to carry that weight, it is our own.  When we do not think of others in this light we show them how little we care for them as their friendship.  To have someone of Value in our lives is to treat them equally and give them what they give to us, value for value there is no room for one person who takes, takes and takes more, and then feels they can put their problems onto another person, that is a Psychic Blackmailer and Leech. 

I saw this the other night on television while watching the VP debate and the VP candidate spoke with a clear mind on how he feels that we Americans and the US are responsible for taking care of the Afgan people, when the VP elect spoke the opposite that it is up to the Afgan people to take care of their own, the later is correct.  When we went over there into Their country, forced our ways, many missionaries go over trying to tell them to convert from their religion to follow that of another, to tell them their traditions and culture need changing that is not our job.  I love the Middle Eastern culture, there is a deep seeded root in their traditions, culture, beliefs and more.  While I do not agree with their treatment of women and how many have basterised their own Quran for those who seek to harm the innocent it does not make them all of evil.  This is an alturists mentality on the part of the VP candidate. 

Another topic I saw the VP candidate mention was that of religion and women rights.  I respect all religions and no one person, or government has the right to tell me what I can and cannot believe, or do with my own body.  If I choose to not have a doctor then I will not, if I want to take birth control it is my right.  Religion and the GOP feels they have the right to tell women what they should and should not do, again this is an Alturists mentality.  No one owns me, I am of a free mind, will and voice as well as a free individual. 

Now, onto the general public and those who think they have a right to take out their problems on the Elderly, Children, Women, and all those who are innocent.  They want to say things about others or speak and say that this is what someone said, well you do not have this right, anyone who does this is a person of NON-Value to me.  When you have no Respect for yourself you will treat others the same, without respect.  To respect another you must first respect yourself for without self love you do not know love at all.  Who has the right to put their problems, guilt, responsibilities on those of others, no one to value a friend is to value a friend as well as those whom you truly care about, to disrespect, spit on them, verbally and emotionally abuse them as well as physically abuse another is that of an Alturist and anyone who is like this is of NON-Value to me.  When you open your mouth and speak saying it is from another, that is Incorrect, it is from your OWN mouth, so it is your OWN words and you, yourself must own up to it there is no other guilt or issue but that of your own.

When we have people of Value in our lives we cherish them, respect them, are happy for them without jealously or envy there is NO room for Ego in a relationship of value.  When we have people in our lives that we value we do for each other as one does for another we place a value on that relationship and that relationship is on equal grounds no one above the other.

When you create your own “Karma”, action, it is yours and yours alone no others.  When you speak it is from your mouth alone not another’s, when you abuse it is your actions not another’s so stop pointing the finger when life and your actions do not suit you, you did it so OWN it.

There is so much envy and jealously today, it is time for Peace and Harmony and for people who are of NON-Value to leave our lives. 

This rant is something that I have needed to get out, I am so sick of those people who cause problems and expect others to clean up the mess, it is time clean up your own mess, so get some toilet paper and wipe your own a   s.

The Divine Sophia, by Giordano Bruno

In the book Sophia; Goddess of Wisdom Bride of God, by Caitlin Matthews she shares a lament or prayer in which Giordano Bruno wrote to Sophia.
“The Divine Sophia have I loved and sought from my youth; I have desired her to be my spouse. Ever have I loved her beauteous, radiant form. Ever have I prayed that she might be sent to abide with me, that she might work with me to the end that I might know what I lacked and what in me God would find acceptable. And since she had ever known and understood, had guided me in all my life’s activity, I am persuaded that even after death she will ever keep me safe, wrapped securely in her watchful, constant love”.
