February 1: Imbolc
Imbolc is one of the four principal festivals of the Irish calendar. Originally dedicated to the goddess Brighid, in the Christian period it was adopted as St Brigid's Day. In Scotland the festival is also known as Latha Fhèill Brìghde, in Ireland as Lá Fhéile Bríde, and in Wales as Gwyl Ffraed. Find out more here:
Originally, her festival on February 1 was known as Imbolc or Oimelc, two names which refer to the lactation of the ewes, the flow of milk that heralds the return of the life-giving forces of spring. Later, the Catholic Church replaced this festival with Candlemas Day on February 2, which is dedicated to the Virgin Mary and features candlelight processions. The powerful figure of Brigid the Light-Bringer overlights both pagan and Christian celebrations.
This season belongs to Brigid by Mara Freeman.
Beside it, they put a straight, peeled stick of birch or similar wood to serve as "Brigid’s wand," a symbol of sovereignty or perhaps a phallic symbol. Then they carefully smoothed the ashes of the hearth. The next morning, the women examined the hearth for signs of Brigid’s favor: the imprint of a foot or the wand. If there were no such marks, the family assumed that Brigid had been offended.

How the Moon rules your life by The Independent.
For eons, folklore has blamed the Moon for everything from lunacy to bad luck. And, for the last few centuries, scientists have scoffed. Now, according to new research they're not so sure. The Moon may not be made of cheese, but it seems to influence a lot more down on Earth than we previously thought. According to new research, the Moon affects not only the tides of the oceans but also people, producing a range of symptoms from flare-ups of gout to bladder problems.
The Universe As Magic Roundabout: Part II by Science A Gogo.
If he's correct, then we live in a universe where there is no past or present, and one that is deterministic, even if it is impossible for us to recognize it as such. But there are a number of pressing questions in regard to Lynds' model. How does it fit in with current research that claims that the universe will expand forever? Does Lynds' model imply that the universe somehow "knows" to play events over and over? And will we all have to relive our lives backward?
Iran prepares people for ‘messiah miracles’
Official Iranian radio has completed broadcasting a lengthy series on the imminent appearance of a messianic figure who will defeat Islam's enemies and impose Islamic Shiite rule over the entire world – even speculating on specific dates the so-called "Mahdi" will be revealed. "Be joyous my heart, miracles of the Messiah will soon be here," reads a poem used to conclude the first broadcast. "The scent of breaths of the One we know comes from near. Grieve not of sorrow and melancholy, as assured I was … last night that a Savior will come, it's clear."
Crime and the paranormal Part 1 & Part 2 by Pravda.
It is an open secret in South East Asia, that the Thais and the Javanese (from the island of Java in Indonesia) were the masters in this form of magic. Being so close to Thailand, my new housemate knew about the methods employed by thieves using paranormal means to rob, and more importantly how to neutralise their powers.

Hacker uncovers UFO evidence by The Canadian.
The search for proof of the existence of UFOs landed Gary McKinnon in a world of trouble. After allegedly hacking into NASA websites -- where he says he found images of what looked like extraterrestrial spaceships -- the 40-year-old Briton faces extradition to the United States from his North London home. If convicted, McKinnon could receive a 70-year prison term and up to $2 million in fines. "I knew that governments suppressed antigravity, UFO-related technologies, free energy or what they call zero-point energy. This should not be kept hidden from the public when pensioners can't pay their fuel bills", says McKinnon.

Evidence: The Case for NASA UFOs
This is not just a collection of "flying saucers" caught on tape like so many other films. It's a thorough scientific investigation into the Unidentified Flying Object phenomenon that was broadcast live by NASA. If there is a thriller movie for the intellect, I would say this is it.
In part 1 David Sereda presents the footage with commentary based on correspondences he conducted with top NASA scientists about the possible nature of the objects seen in the film. It shows footage that was coincidently filmed by the cameras that were fixed on the Space Shuttle from several missions during the 1990's so the footage is authentic and difficult to dismiss as fake especially after David Sereda breaks down what makes the footage mind-blowing.
From Earth we see meteorites streak across the sky as they burn up in our atmosphere. But from a vantage point 300 miles above the Earth, what would cause objects to luminously streak across the field of view above the atmosphere? Or, more importantly, streak outward away from the atmosphere? And so Sereda's starting point is simple: How do objects flying outside of the Earth's atmosphere, in the void of space, appear as radiant objects unless they are self-luminescent.
In part 2, Sereda outlines his radical hypothesis as to the nature of these pulsing disc shaped objects. These objects appear, as Sereda explains, to have a mini-black hole at their centers which generate electromagnetic gravity waves that propel them at FTL (faster than light) speeds. Sereda's discussion of quantum mechanics, the physics of black hole gravity and light distortion, and the nature of the electromagnetic spectrum (for starters), sounds revolutionary. It certainly seems like the first credible hypothesis to explain the nature of FTL and presents the most convincing case for the existence of UFOs.
If these images are, in fact, UFOs, then the space around our planet is absolutely rife with pulsing discs, swarming luminous spheres and incredibly fast luminescent objects (and pairs of objects) that flash by in a split second.

The Great Illusion
The search for the answers to life and its laws,
is rooted in everything, since effects have their cause.
It's as easy as saying when words hit a wall,
they come back at the speaker like a red rubber ball.
You can't hide any garbage, or mess up in this dream...
all your actions are viewed from beyond the mainstream.
The ancients all looked for that place ~ Shangri-La,
and reflected in the knowledge of what is known as Karma.
You can study the ancients for all that's concealed,
or you can look toward intentions to have all be revealed.
It's as simple as saying that your thoughts are alive,
they create actions & reactions unseen to the eyes.
It's difficult understanding that life's a charade,
or that fears create reality ...if you're slightly afraid.
A guru can teach you the path that's unsaid,
these words try to show you that it's inside your head.

52 Proven Stress Reducers
6. Practice preventive maintenance. Your car, appliances, home and relationships will be less likely to break down "at the worst possible moment."
7. Be prepared to wait. A paperback book can make a wait in a post office line almost pleasant.
8. Procrastination is stressful. Whatever you want to do tomorrow, do today; whatever you want to do today, do it now.
9. Plan ahead. Don't let the gas tank get below onequarter full, keep a well- stocked "emergency shelf'' of home staples, don't wait until you're down to your last bus token or postage stamp to buy more, etc.
10. Don't put up with something that doesn't work right. If your alarm clock wallet, shoe laces, windshield wipers-whatever-are a constant aggravation, get them fixed or get new ones.
11. Allow 15 minutes of extra time to get to appointments. Plan to arrive at an airport one hour before domestic departures.
12. Eliminate (or restrict) the amount of caffeine in your diet.
13. Always set up contingency plans, "just in case." ("If for some reason either of us is delayed, here's what we'll do..." Or, "If we get split up in the shopping center, here's where we'll meet.")
14. Relax your standards. The world will not end if the grass doesn't get mowed this weekend.
15. Pollyanna-Power! For every one thing that goes wrong, there are probably 10 or 50 or 100 blessings. Count 'em!
16. Ask questions. Taking a few moments to repeat back the directions that someone expects of you, etc., can save hours. (The old "the hurrieder I go, the behinder I get" idea.)
17. Say "No!" Saying no to extra projects, social activities and invitations you know you don't have the time or energy for takes practice, self-respect and a belief that everyone, everyday, needs quiet time to relax and to be alone.

Auf der Suche nach sich selbst verließ der junge Adlige Siddhartha Gautama mit 29 Jahren seine Heimat Nepal und zog in die Welt. Als Wanderasket suchte er mehrere Lehrer auf, die er nach dem Sinn des Lebens fragte. Schließlich erkannte Buddha, wie er sich selbst später nannte, die Erlösung als Ziel des irdischen Leidens. Aus seiner Philosophie wurde eine Weltreligion: der Buddhismus. Mit dem Leben des Buddha und seinen Ideen befasst sich diese BBC-Dokumentation.

Most of the numerologist are using only Pythagorean numerology that is popular especially in the west. But my experience with Indian Numerology in India - the spiritual center of the world - has resulted in using both numerology systems. The systems are totally different, they use totally different numerology vibrations, different numerology calculation methods. And I wonder which system is better, the new one called Pythagorean Numerology or the old one Chaldean Numerology, that is more spiritual.
There is the Universal Consciousness also known as Chaitanya that is often mentioned in Numerology.

Esalen Institute: still mystical after all these years by ContraCostaTimes.
The Esalen Institute on California's rugged Big Sur coast first entered my consciousness as a teenager in the psychedelic '60s. There it flitted for 30-odd years, an enigmatic place cloaked in "alternative" jargon, secretive smiles and suggestions I couldn't quite process. What I heard about Esalen was vague and esoteric, not easily articulated. Over the years, the people I met who'd actually been here -- taken a workshop, soaked in the famous mineral baths -- talked about it with a kind of dreamy reverence that piqued my curiosity even more.
The Universe As Magic Roundabout by Science a GoGo.
Ever feel like you've been there, done that, and that the life you're living seems strangely familiar? Maybe a psychic has told you that you were once a great king or queen, or, at the very least, their eunuch. Perhaps a neurologist has told you that the déjà vu that you're experiencing is just a trick of the mind. But while these explanations may appeal to either the spiritually or scientifically inclined, physicist Peter Lynds argues that there may be a much grander account that explains the repetitiveness of life: a cyclic universe.
Stepping up the search for ET by The Paramus Post.
"I remember just looking and thinking that up there, somewhere around one of those stars, there's another little girl walking on the beach with her dad," Tarter said. How could there not be, when the stars in the sky are as common as the grains of sand beneath her feet? Tarter is now director of research for SETI - the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence. Based in Mountain View in Northern California, SETI is made up of 135 scientists and support staff who have committed their professional lives to searching for signals from extraterrestrials.
What is a Jewish Myth? by The Llewellyn Journal.
Truth is however, that Judaism has always had its own complex, compelling mythos, starting with the Bible and extending up to today. Most Jewish myths, such as are found in the Midrash, are “spiritual” myths that incorporate divine things and supernatural times and events, but Jews also have secular myths; some of the best modern example revolves around the founding of the state of Israel. But I’m getting ahead of myself. Jewish or not, what precisely is a “myth?”
