Legend of the Serpent: The Biggest Religious Cover Up in History … from Rajesh Ganatra

Legend of the Serpent: The Biggest Religious Cover Up in History … from Rajesh Ganatra

The serpent has been portrayed, within the western culture, as profane for many generations because of Christianity. But wouldn’t you know, the amount of wisdom and knowledge hidden behind the serpent it’s “self”, be sacred.


The serpent is depicted in several different ways, but the main format of use inherited represents the Spiritual balance of the Universe. (+) & (-) [positive and negative] or duality. In the flesh, the serpent symbolizes the control of desire or lack thereof. Positive charged control being portrayed with Quetzalcoatl, The Buddha, Shiva or even Moses. Negative charged lack of control, or chaos, is portrayed like Queen Madusa or Tiamat.

In Hinduism, a meditation technique called Kundalini is practiced. This technique balances your Chakras and helps open your 3rd Eye with practice. The person who’s intent is pure control over desires within this 3rd dimension, would be in great hands if this technique is practiced daily. Benefits range from enhanced life force (chi) to self healing awareness from this enhanced life force. As well as Soul rebirth to transformation and immortality, also because of this life force energy. And increased fertility. This technique consist of a style of meditation that pulls energy from Mother Earth through your Root Chakra and up your spine through every Chakra all the way up to your Crown Chakra. You can feel the tether of energy from the ground up with practice.

The energy pattern created by the practice of Kundalini, around the spinal cord, creates the Caduceus or the Staff of Hermes (Hermes also being a profane character to hide wisdom behind and maybe the origin of the profane devise). This portrays balance and control of desire. The Caduceus consists of a Female Serpent (+) and a Male Serpent(-). Each point of connection between the two serpents starting at the tail, represents each Chakra at the point of connection and the eyes of the serpents represent the 3rd Eye Chakra and the balancing of positive and negative energies it takes to open the 3rd Eye. The ball at the top of the staff symbolizes the Crown Chakra that connects us to Divine source. And of course the staff represents our spine. Once the 3rd eye is opened through this practice of Kundalini, flight in between the mortal and divine realms is enabled if mastered, represented by the wings.

This translates even further into the representation of the balance of atomic energy release through natural insemination, becoming your double helix of DNA.

We were created, energetically balanced into this world. Through lack of energy balancing practice, we have become extremely unbalanced.

UNBELIEVABLE AND WRITTEN BY A MUSLIM

UNBELIEVABLE AND WRITTEN BY A MUSLIM
It sure makes interesting reading… particularly coming from a Pakistani official. By: Dr Farrukh Saleem

The writer is the Pakistani Executive Director of the Center for Research and Security Studies, a think tank established in 2007, and an Islamabad-based freelance columnist.
Why are Jews so powerful?

There are only 14 million Jews in the world; seven million in the Americas , five million in Asia, two million in Europe and 100,000 in
Africa. For every single Jew in the world there are
100 Muslims.

Yet, Jews are more than a hundred times more powerful
than all the Muslims put together.
Ever wondered why?

Jesus of Nazareth was Jewish.
Albert Einstein, the most influential scientist of all time and
TIME magazine’s ‘Person of the Century’, was a Jew.

Sigmund Freud, the father of psychoanalysis was a Jew.
So were Karl Marx, Paul Samuelson and Milton Friedman.

Here are a few other Jews whose intellectual output
has enriched the whole humanity:

Benjamin Rubin gave humanity the vaccinating needle.
Jonas Salk developed the first polio vaccine.
Albert Sabin developed the improved live polio vaccine.
Gertrude Elion gave us a leukemia fighting drug.
Baruch Blumberg developed the vaccination for Hepatitis B.

Paul Ehrlich discovered a treatment for syphilis.
Elie Metchnikoff won a Nobel Prize in infectious diseases.
Bernard Katz won a Nobel Prize in neuromuscular transmission.
Andrew Schally won a Nobel in endocrinology.
Aaron Beck founded Cognitive Therapy.

Gregory Pincus developed the first oral contraceptive pill.
George Wald won a Nobel for our understanding of the human eye.
Stanley Cohen won a Nobel in embryology.
Willem Kolff came up with the kidney dialysis machine.

Over the past 105 years, 14 million Jews have won 15-dozen Nobel Prizes while only three Nobel Prizes have been won by 1.4 billion
Muslims (other than Peace Prizes).
Why are Jews so powerful?
Stanley Mezor invented the first micro-processing chip.
Leo Szilard developed the first nuclear chain reactor;
Peter Schultz, optical fibre cable;
Charles Adler, traffic lights;
Benno Strauss, Stainless steel;
Isador Kisee, sound movies;
Emile Berliner, telephone microphone;
Charles Ginsburg, videotape recorder.

Famous financiers in the business world who belong to Jewish faith include
Ralph Lauren (Polo),
Levis Strauss (Levi’s Jeans),
Howard Schultz (Starbuck’s) ,
Sergey Brin (Google),
Michael Dell (Dell Computers),
Larry Ellison (Oracle),
Donna Karan (DKNY),
Irv Robbins (Baskins & Robbins) and
Bill Rosenberg (Dunkin Donuts).

Richard Levin, President of Yale University, is a Jew. So are Henry Kissinger (American secretary of state), Alan Greenspan (Fed chairman under Reagan, Bush, Clinton and Bush), Joseph Lieberman (US Senator), Madeleine Albright (American secretary of state), Casper
Weinberger (American secretary of defense), Maxim Litvinov ( USSR foreign Minister), David Marshal ( Singapore ‘s first chief minister), Issac Isaacs (governor-general of Australia ), Benjamin
Disraeli (British statesman and author), Yevgeny Primakov (Russian PM), Barry Goldwater (US Senator), Jorge Sampaio (president of Portugal ), John Deutsch (CIA director), Herb Gray (Canadian deputy PM), Pierre Mendes (French PM), Michael Howard (British home
secretary), Bruno Kreisky (chancellor of Austria ) and Robert Rubin (American secretary of treasury).

In the media, famous Jews include Wolf Blitzer (CNN), Barbara Walters (ABC News), Eugene Meyer (Washington Post), Henry Grunwald
(editor-in-chief Time), Katherine Graham (publisher of The Washington Post), Joseph Lelyveld (Executive editor, The New York Times), and Max Frankel (New York Times).

The most beneficent philanthropist in the history of the world is George Soros, a Jew, who has so far donated a colossal $4 billion most of which has gone as aid to scientists and universities around the world.

Second to George Soros is Walter Annenberg, another Jew, who has built a hundred libraries by donating an estimated $2 billion.

At the Olympics, Mark Spitz set a record of sorts by winning seven gold medals; Lenny Krayzelburg is a three-time Olympic gold medalist.
Spitz, Krayzelburg and Boris Becker (Tennis) are all Jewish.

Did you know that Harrison Ford, George Burns, Tony Curtis, Charles Bronson, Sandra Bullock, Billy Crystal, Woody Allen, Paul Newman,
Peter Sellers, Dustin Hoffman, Michael Douglas, Ben Kingsley, Kirk Douglas, Goldie Hawn, Cary Grant, William Shatner, Jerry Lewis and
Peter Falk are all Jewish?

As a matter of fact, Hollywood itself was founded by a Jew. Among directors and producers, Steven Spielberg, Mel Brooks, Oliver Stone,
Aaron Spelling ( Beverly Hills 90210), Neil Simon (The Odd Couple), Andrew Vaina (Rambo 1/2/3), Michael Man (Starsky andHutch), Milos
Forman (One flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest), Douglas Fairbanks (The Thief of Baghdad ) and Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters) are all Jewish.

So, why are Jews so powerful?
Answer : EDUCATION
Why are Muslims so powerless?

There are an estimated 1,476,233,470 Muslims on the face of the planet: one billion in Asia, 400 million in Africa, 44 million in Europe and six million in the Americas . Every fifth human being is a Muslim; for every single Hindu there are two Muslims, for every Buddhist there are two Muslims and for every Jew there are one hundred Muslims.

Ever wondered why Muslims are so powerless?
Here is why: There are 57 member-countries of the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC), and all of them put together have around
500 universities; one university for every three million Muslims. The United States has 5,758 universities and India has 8,407.

In 2004, Shanghai Jiao Tong University compiled an ‘Academic Ranking of World Universities’ , and intriguingly, not one university
from Muslim-majority states was in the top-500.

As per data collected by the UNDP, literacy in the Christian world stands at nearly 90 per cent and 15 Christian-majority states have a literacy rate of 100 per cent.

A Muslim-majority state, as a sharp contrast, has an average literacy rate of around 40 per cent and there is no Muslim-majority state with
a literacy rate of 100 per cent.

Some 98 per cent of the ‘literates’ in the Christian world had completed primary school, while less than 50 per cent of the ‘literates’ in the Muslim world did the same.

Around 40 per cent of the ‘literates’ in the Christian world attended university while no more than two per cent of the ‘literates’ in the Muslim world did the same.

Muslim-majority countries have 230 scientists per one million Muslims. The US has 4,000 scientists per million and Japan has 5,000 per million.
In the entire Arab world, the total number of full-time researchers is 35,000 and there are only 50 technicians per one million Arabs. (in the Christian world there are up to 1,000 technicians per one million).

Furthermore, the Muslim world spends 0.2 per cent of its GDP on research and development, while the Christian world spends around five per cent of its GDP.

Conclusion: The Muslim world lacks the capacity to produce knowledge!

Daily newspapers per 1,000 people and number of book titles per million are two indicators of whether knowledge is being diffused in a society.

In Pakistan, there are 23 daily newspapers per 1,000 Pakistanis while the same ratio in Singapore is 360. In the UK , the number of book
titles per million stands at 2,000 while the same in Egypt is 20.

Conclusion: The Muslim world is failing to diffuse knowledge.

Exports of high technology products as a percentage of total exports are an important indicator of knowledge application. Pakistan ‘s export of high technology products as a percentage of total exports stands at one per cent. The same for Saudi Arabia is 0.3 per cent; Kuwait, Morocco, and Algeria are all at 0.3 per cent, while Singapore is at 58 per cent.

Conclusion: The Muslim world is failing to apply knowledge.

Why are Muslims powerless?

…..Because we aren’t producing knowledge,
…..Because we aren’t diffusing knowledge.,
…..Because we aren’t applying knowledge.

And, the future belongs to knowledge-based societies.

Interestingly, the combined annual GDP of 57 OIC-countries is under $2 trillion.
America, just by herself, produces goods and services worth $12 trillion;
China $8 trillion,
Japan $3.8 trillion and
Germany $2.4 trillion (purchasing power parity basis).

Oil rich Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait and Qatar collectively produce goods and services (mostly oil) worth $500 billion;
Spain alone produces goods and services worth over $1 trillion,
Catholic Poland $489 billion and
Buddhist Thailand $545 billion.

….. (Muslim GDP as a percentage of world GDP is fast declining).
So, why are Muslims so powerless?
Answer: Lack of education.

All we do is shout to Allah the whole day !!! and blame everyone else for our multiple failures!!!!!

===============================
Muslims are not happy
They’re not happy in Gaza
They’re not happy in Egypt
They’re not happy in Libya
They’re not happy in Morocco
They’re not happy in Iran
They’re not happy in Iraq
They’re not happy in Yemen
They’re not happy in Afghanistan
They’re not happy in Pakistan
They’re not happy in Syria
They’re not happy in Lebanon
So, where are they happy?
They’re happy in Australia
They’re happy in England
They’re happy in France
They’re happy in Italy
They’re happy in Germany
They’re happy in Sweden
They’re happy in the USA & Canada
They’re happy in Norway
They’re happy in almost every country that is not Islamic!
And who do they blame?
Not Islam…
Not their leadership…
Not themselves…
THEY BLAME THE COUNTRIES THEY ARE HAPPY IN
And they want to change the countries they’re happy in,
to be like the countries they came from,
where they were unhappy.
Try to find logic in that !

Jeff Foxworthy on Muslims:
(Paras note: This is not really Jeff on Muslims… he does Redneck jokes just like this and someones just changed words and copied his style)

1. If You refine heroin for a living, but you have a moral objection to liquor.
You are a Muslim

2. If You own a $3,000 machine gun and $5,000 rocket launcher, but you can’tafford shoes.
You are a Muslim
3. If You have more wives than teeth.
You are a Muslim
4. If You wipe your butt with your bare hand, but consider bacon unclean.

You are a Muslim

5. If You think vests come in two styles: bullet-proof and suicide.
You are a Muslim
6. If You can’t think of anyone you haven’t declared Jihad against.

You are a Muslim
7. If You consider television dangerous, but routinely carry explosives in your clothing.

You are a Muslim
8. If You were amazed to discover that cell phones have uses other than setting off roadside bombs.

You are a Muslim
9. If You have nothing against women and think every man should own at least four.

You are a Muslim
10. If You find this offensive or racist and don’t forward it.
You are a Muslim

You Must Invest in Your Own Education About Money by Jon Giaan … Thanx Nish

You Must Invest in Your Own Education About Money by Jon Giaan … Thanx Nish
Throughout your lifetime, most of you reading this will make in excess of $1 million.

There’s only one problem.

It’s going to take you 20-30 years to achieve it on your current yearly income.

Despite that, it’s still a lot of money.

The bad news is, like most people, you’ll spend it all – and after a lifetime of earnings, you’ll probably end up with nothing.

How is that possible?

Because no one teaches you about money, you probably received no formal education in the most critical subject that your whole life revolves around.

Did you ever attend a class called, Money 101?

Have you ever thought, why isn’t it compulsory to teach children the fundamentals of money?

I mean, so many people talk about how they wish they learnt the secrets of making money at school.

Let me tell you, it’s never going to happen.

Here’s why…

Schools as we know it today were built out of the industrial age’s necessity to create a workforce for the industrial revolution. Henry Ford saw to that, he was one of the visionaries behind the current school system. The whole curriculum that today’s society is built on is designed to turn you into an employee (they’ve done a good job of that, haven’t they?).

Nothing more, nothing less.

There are some folks out there who foolishly believe they can change the school system and introduce more life-skills like
“understanding how money works and operates.”

Forget it.

My suggestion is, put the oxygen mask on yourself first and forget about changing the system.

Let me ask you a question.

How did you learn about money?

Most likely you picked it up a piece here, and a tip there. You absorbed attitudes from your parents, peers and the media.

You proceeded through trial and error and learnt through the school of hard knocks. What you learnt was probably haphazard, mostly wrong and certainly out of context.

The end result usually is overwhelmed by the whole subject of money. Confused and frustrated – you do the unthinkable… and that is you put your financial future in the hands of somebody with a suit who smells good, looks good but has absolutely no idea about making money (financial professionals).

Here’s an example of what I’m talking about – and how ridiculous our system is, and effectively what you’re up against.

Let’s call Person A, Bob.

Now, Bob is a bona-fide millionaire trader. He makes a living out of trading the market every day.

Now you meet Bob at a BBQ and in conversation you find out that he’s a full-time trader. You of course are interested, and you ask Bob for a tip.

Bob casually obliges and says to you that he’s looking at BHP at the moment and he’s going to enter a trade on Monday morning if all the signals are right.

You take that on, because you respect Bob’s history, background and the fact that he’s been making a full-time living trading the market for the last 10 years.

Monday comes around and you take the trade based on Bob’s advice. Now of course Bob never told you to trade the stock, you were just having a conversation. Anyway, after 3 days of being in the trade, you’ve lost 10% of your money and you get out of the trade.

No big deal, not every trade is a winner.

Why am I telling you all this?

Because based on the way our system is currently run – you can actually sue Bob for giving you financial advice without a license. Despite the fact that Bob is a multi-millionaire from trading.

Now consider this, imagine Bob was not a hard-core trader, but a financial planner 6 months out of school. He’s never traded a share before in his life and he gives you the same information.

Let’s assume the same thing happens on the trade and you lose some money. Well guess what, you can’t sue the financial planner because he has a license.

The moral of the story… Results are meaningless when it comes to giving advice. Degrees, diplomas and process are all that matters. It doesn’t make sense, right?

That’s why you can’t franchise your wealth-building to financial planners and accountants. You’ve got to take on the role yourself because at the end of the day it’s your money and no body is going to care about it as much as you.

I know I’m on a rant at the moment, but if I estimate the amount of money that has been lost in the last 12 months by financial planners and institutions – it would be in the billions… and yet nobody has gone to jail and no massive court cases.

The poor little investor at best, gets 5 cents in the dollar (if that) and is scared for life when it comes to investing.

Your money – your responsibility.

Don’t get sucked in to “guaranteed” returns, especially those that promise 5-8% a month.

I’ve heard so many tragic stories of late of people who have poured in hundreds of thousands of dollars into such schemes.

The best insurance you can build against being ripped off is investing in your own education.

Ultimately, this is the highest payoff.

But if you’re going to give money away to a 3rd party, here’s my rule… “Only ever invest what you can afford to lose.”

If that’s $5,000, so be it.

If it’s $25,000 – that’s cool too.

But always know in the back of your mind that investments like this are highly-speculative and risky.

Do yourself a favour and invest in your own education – I’ve been doing it for years and it’s the best return of money that I’ve ever received.

Pimp: The Story of My Life (Audiobook) by Iceberg Slim a.k.a. Robert Beck

Pimp: The Story of My Life (Audiobook) by Iceberg Slim a.k.a. Robert Beck
Robert Beck tells his twisted story of his journey to being a pimp and eventually leaving the game. The slang he uses was so new to me I had no idea what he was going on about until he painted a better picture and still I had difficulty, so the glossary helps a lot. My favourite is scratch which means money.

Summary:
Start with his dad throwing him at the wall when he was just about 2 months. His mother was a loose woman and since they were from the south they were a bit green. I think my post on hip hop history gives a better picture on the north and south issue. Anyway so before he was even 20 he was already a pimp but he wanted to be the best and had to go to be in the right place and learn the right stuff. Prison and the pimp of pimps called Sweet taught him the most. Sweet told him about the unwritten book on pimping that the pimp godfathers ‘wrote’. Lots of bad words, drugs and putting foots in bitches asses. How his moniker changed from Blood (Young Blood) to Iceberg Slim. So many twists and turns and the part where he straightens out a hanger to whip one of his moneymakers even had me winching and twisting in bed.

Apparently a lot of people see this book as the bible on pimping and see Iceberg as the real pimp godfather. Big up Dave Chappelle for the recommendation.
