Dionysus the son of Zeus
Sol Invictus – (The “Unconquered Sun”)
The Puritans who came to America seeking religious freedom, banned Christmas trees because it was common knowledge that it was a blatant pagan practice and the evergreen tree, adorned with ordainment and gold and such were blatant pagan symbols. The Puritans followed the bible’s teachings too:
Thus, is the true reason for the season. The origin of the Christmas Holiday!
Of course… I may be wrong, and this may be the REAL reason for the season:
We checked out Morgan Spurlock’s new movie at Sundance this year. It’s called “The Greatest Movie Ever Sold”. If you want to see audience members laughing out loud and and applauding during a movie documentary I highly recommend it. Outrageously funny, see it in the theater. They finally have released trailers, here is the 1080P one.
Check it out. 1080P
For those self-acclaimed enlightened among you, please join in the non-battle against unwanted things.
We all have some unenlightened friends who often send us an invitation to join a Facebook group to fight against something. So I wanted to make a group I could send them to, to attempt to try to teach how things are truly defeated.
To understand that pushing against unwanted things only creates more of them (war on drugs, terrorism, crime, teen pregnancy, poverty, cancer, anything unwanted, etc.) To teach that emotionalized attention to a subject gives it energy and continues to perpetuate them in our experience. Whatever you resist, persists.
This is not a group who pushes against those pushing against unwanted things; this is more a statement that there are a group of enlighten beings who quietly are making the world better by our attention to wanted things. Peace, Freedom, Abundance, Health, Happiness and Love.
We understand what Jesus taught when he said “Resist not Evil & Turn the other Cheek” meaning don’t give attention to unwanted things, turn away from them.
Next time your friend invites you to join a group “against” something, free free to send them an invite this way.
