What makes his art so unique is the way he translates spiritual experience from his subconscious onto canvas through meditation at sunrise. With vibrant hues, Rassouli produces joyful color blends and circular brushwork that create a timeless perspective. He calls his unique painting technique Fusionart.
Fusionart's main theme is cosmic unity. The painting style is derived from mysticism, near-eastern spirituality, and a foundation in European painting technology. Rassouli represents this concept through illumination of the Divine Creative Light coupled with its manifestation reflected on his canvas in the form of feminine power and beauty.
LIGHT is my inspiration. Many mornings, before the dawn, I climb a mountain in the dark to its peak. There, sitting in solitude, I observe sunrise. There is an interconnected serenity that allows all creatures to experience the divine unity. Having felt that creative energy, I rush to my studio, dip my brush into paint and let it move freely on canvas.
Spiritual, abstract, surrealistic paintings and modern metaphysical Arts of Rassouli.
The twenty-five articles published in this book were originally written for Northcliffe Newspapers, Ltd. They first appeared in the "Bristol Evening World" in April and May, 1934. Their claim on the interest of the book-reading public lies in the fact that they fill a gap. Although Psychical Research and Spiritualism has a vast literature no single book has yet presented, in the form of short narratives, the stories of famous mediums of the past and present. I wish to stress that these narratives were written for the general public. It was my purpose to show that there are true stories which vie in fascination with the most popular thrillers. Also that it is time enough to know of the existence of such mysteries and the attempts at their unveiling by men of science.
Many people are familiar with the work of Nandor Fodor through his groundbreaking book "An Encyclopaedia of Psychic Science", published in 1934. This monumental volume established Fodor as an authority on psychic phenomena, but his later works were equally informative and absorbing.
In "These Mysterious People" Fodor presents 25 short, riveting articles covering all the key figures and events in psychical research and the early spiritualist movement.
Übrigens - dieses Buch gibt es seit Juli 2005 auch auf deutsch - leider nicht online, aber im Buchhandel: "Diese Mysteriösen Leute" von Nandor Fodor - BRV Benjawan Reichmann.
Das Buch ist ein echtes Feuerwerk bunter Stories über Menschen und Vorgänge während der "Glanzzeit des Spiritismus" zwischen etwa 1850 und 1940. Hier hat man nicht mit Fantasy, sondern ausschliesslich mit Fakten zu tun, welche damals meist sehr akribisch dokumentiert wurden. Mehr bei Amazon.
Circa 1850. Geheimnisvolle Zeitfenster tun sich auf, lassen die Menschheit über einen Bruchteil ihrer Zeitgeschichte hinweg in diese verborgenste aller Welten, das Jenseits, hineinschauen. Hoch sensitiv veranlagte spiritistische Medien, eben jene mysteriösen Leute, verwirren Forscher mit verblüffend genauen Botschaften längst Verstorbener. Und produzieren derart ungewöhnliche außersinnliche Phänomene, dass selbst hart gesottenen Spiritisten der Atem stockt. Gleichzeitig beginnt ein Kampf um die Glaubwürdigkeit – zwischen Bekehrten und Skeptikern, Spiritisten und Zauberkünstlern, Augenzeugen und Reportern, Laien und Wissenschaftlern. Fodors unglaubliche Fallbeispiele, ergänzt um aktuelle Hintergrundinformationen aus heutiger Sicht, sorgen für ebenso spannende wie informative Unterhaltung über eine ganz und gar mysteriöse Zeitepoche.
I am beginning to see around me evidence that this man's prophecy was correct. Why that would be so is another matter entirely, and one that I cannot address except with specu-lation, but I can say that, if things keep deteriorating at the present rate, there are going to be environmental disasters of unprecedented ferocity in a few years, and I would not be surprised if they weren't upon us right around 2012.
Forensic nurses, regardless of their practice area, will at times come in contact with the same types of deviant behavior. Some of these behaviors may be considered rare or even non-existent. It is to our benefit that we share our investigative experiences with these cases. Vampirism is one such behavior.
There are beliefs and superstitions regarding vampires that date back to medieval Europe. The vampire is thought to be of Slavic origin. They are fictional characters that are believed to be evil spirits that have been refused entry into another world after death because of some unsuitable behavior. They must drink the blood of the living in order to sustain themselves. These mythical characters live in cemeteries and only leave their gravesite at night. They do not have a real identity and therefore do not cast a shadow or a reflection in a mirror.
We have inherited a city full of the dreams, lives and deaths of those who lived here before us, some of whom are still among us. Most go unseen, but some try to contact us, play tricks on us, and in many cases, terrify us.
... Astonished, Kevin Taylor of Rushfield, Potters Bar, had the presence of mind to capture the moment on film before the beast disappeared into the undergrowth. Although at a glance the black shape in the pictures he filmed could be mistaken for a common moggy, Mr Taylor, reckons that it is actually much larger.
The footage shows the creature, possibly the elusive Beast of Brookmans Park, turn and run off in a distinctly cat-like manner.
And to get a greater sense of the animal's size, Mr Taylor measured the grass in the field behind at 25 inches high ...
Der amerikanische Erfolgsautor Dan Brown hat mit seinem Bestseller »Illuminati« eine weltweite Diskussion ausgelöst: Gibt es den ominösen Geheimbund der »Erleuchteten« wirklich? Und strebt er tatsächlich eine neue Weltordnung an? Eine Spurensuche.
Ein guter Ansatz zur (Auf-)Klärung über Verschwörungstheorien - vor allem der Schluss des Artikels. Allerdings haben die "falschen" Illuminaten in Dan Browns Buch nichts mit denen zu tun, die im Artikel beschrieben sind.
“Please don’t think I’m crazy, but…” is how most conversations typically begin around the subject of After Death Communication (ADC). Although I have experienced ADC’s in the form of dreams, I have counseled many people who are looking for permission to share how their deceased loved-one has “visited” them from the other side. Most of the research in this area has been done from a qualitative (e.g., structured interviews) approach (Devers and Robinson, 2002; Guggenheim, 1997; LaGrand, 1997), which is an excellent way for people to begin telling their stories and comparing similar experiences with other bereft people. Yet, are there others ways to statistically measure the frequency and uniqueness of such experiences? In other words, are ADC’s random or purposeful to specific types of populations or bereavement groups?
Most ADC's are subtle, so it is very helpful to know what the different signs are, in order to be able to recognize any sign that you may be receiving. And it is OK to ask for a specific sign in order to be able to recognize the sign as being an ADC when you get it.
Today in the News: One woman said her dead grandmother appears to her in dreams. Another said she's received messages on her answering machine from her dead son. A man said he suspects his late son returned to tuck a penny into a penknife for him to find.
An after-death communication is a spiritual experience that occurs when a person is contacted directly and spontaneously by a family member or friend who has died. During their seven years of research, Bill and Judy Guggenheim collected more than 3,300 firsthand reports from people who believe they have been contacted by a deceased loved one. Their book, Hello From Heaven, documents many such experiences.

Myths of Ancient Greece and Rome also tell us about animal men, and centaurs are the most frequent ones. These are creatures with the human torso transforming into the feet of a horse or some other animal, a bull, a donkey, a sheep and even a goat. The word centaur is a compound of KEN (kenw) meaning "I kill" and TAUROS meaning "bull", and it reveals astronomic knowledge of our ancestors. When the constellation of Sagittarius (Centaurus throwing a spear) appears in the night skies, we can no longer see Taurus, one of the Sun symbols.
The AGHS is a dedicated group, who do not have any preconceived or established beliefs about the paranormal.
We are open-minded about ideas, beliefs and further research and experimentation. Like most ghost groups around the world today, we will always be learning and gathering knowledge as we explore and investigate reported hauntings around Australia. Of course we will be reporting our findings whenever possible so the public can also share in our knowledge on-line.
In AGHS we don’t judge those who believe and who feel that they need to share their experience with us. It is our opinion that further research is needed to allow us to prove beyond doubt whether or not ghosts exist, although many of us have had unexplainable experiences of our own. Most of us still search for the answers to these experiences.
With "The Unexplained" (Amityville Hoax, 3 Men and A Baby Ghost and much more), "Ghost Stories" (From around the world), "Ghostly Photos" (Could there actually be ghosts caught on film? - decide for yourself) and "Urban Legends/Classic Ghost Stories" (Those spooky stories that are told around a campfire).
Knowing the secret behind firewalking can improve your life! Even if you never do it yourself, knowing how it works can bring you better health and increased personal power. Why? Because firewalking demonstrates how your thoughts impact everything else in your life. Thoughts change brain chemistry, and that results in an alteration of body chemistry as well. This is immediately apparent when you entertain a sexual fantasy. Firewalkers are instructed to pay close attention to their thoughts, since those very thoughts are the way in which we create our own realities. Positive thinkers literally live in a different chemical environment than negative thinkers. They impose less stress on their immune systems, and the result of that should be obvious.

This is a comparitive analysis of the nature and purpose of Native North American firewalking and fire handling cultures against the rituals of the Greek firedancing Anastenarides, and contemporary firewalkers of the United States. Ethnographic data on firewalking cultures worldwide, as well as attempts at a scientific explanation, contribute to the understanding of this rite of purification, healing, and passage.
"They believe that the power of Saint Constantine—the religious power—allows them to do it and that that is a miracle," said Loring Danforth, an anthropologist at Bates College in Lewiston, Maine.
The festival is just one of the many events around the world in which people walk across a fire pit without getting burned.
Danforth has extensively studied fire-walking rituals, including the event in northern Greece and the more recently established fire-walking movement in the U.S.
As interest in fire walking has grown, he said, scientists have attempted to demystify the phenomenon and tease apart the allure of the ritual. But no amount of debunking can take away from the empowerment a fire walker can feel, Danforth says.

I think the focal point of mainstream religion has changed - http://www.ebook-search-queen.com/ebook/reli/religion+and+ethics.all.html .That’s part of the “see the world in black and white” that the fundamentalists find so important about their “my way or the highway to hell”. Its far easier to use religion as the label for making oneself feel better or more important than someone else. I don’t murder, so I’m better/God loves me more than…
I have to link to this blog because I think that is so important when it comes to manifestation and getting what you want in life. All the great successful people in the world today did some form of visualization. And a vision board is one of the most powerful manifestation tools to date in my opinion.
Looking so Kumbh Mela of 1895 is wonderful, the power of a faith like that, that can make multitudes upon multitudes of the old and weak and the young and frail enter without hesitation or complaint upon such.
Only a supremely powerful intellect could pierce of veil of hypnotic deception to bring the truth to the teeming masses of smooth-brained mouthbreathers that we all must be. Such courage and mental prowess in the mind of a single person. Thank you so much for attempting to free me of my mental prison of hypnotic malaise. His neck must be substantially stronger than the average “man-on-the-street” to…
