APPENDIX (ORIGINAL TRANSLATION OF THE FIRST THREE VERSES OF THE BOOK OF GENESIS, FROM THE PENTATUECH OF THE ESSENE JEWS)

“The spirit of God brought into continuous expression the dual principle of life and death by “containing” it in an infinite array of cosmic manifestations. This creation is a perpetual process by means of which the Cosmic principle is eternally brought into realization. Through this initial manifestation the first nine archetypes of existence came into being. The creation was dual, for in the process of creating the external universe, the Cosmic principle brought Itself into manifestation. The Divine fertilizing agent projected in continuity the dual principle of life and death into the cosmic womb, and started the gestation process which brought forth the spiritual essence of the created universe. The Manifested Cosmic principle was then surrounded by continuous existence. The essence of spirit was fertilized and expressed in universal manifestation through the cosmic copulation between the male and female Cosmic principles. This brought forth the Creation of the Physical Universe in the form of a vast explosion of light”

What you just read, is the original text of Genesis.  What many people do not know, is that the Bible’s version comes from something called the vulgate, and the vulgate comes from the septuagint, the original Greek translation of the book of Genesis.  The septuagint arose, as a result of Ptolemy, one of the rulers of Egypt of Greek descent, the result of Alexander the Great conquering Egypt.  Ptolemy wanted to better understand the Jews living under his juristiction, so he requested that the Essenes, the only group of Jewish scholars who not only spoke/wrote Hebrew, but Greek as well, translate a copy of their holy books for him.  The Essenes being the aesthetics that they were, did not like the idea of a decadent pagan emperor being let in on the innermost secrets of the Hebrew faith, and so they watered down their translation of it.  That is the septuagint, and everything descended from it, including the book of Genesis in the Bible, a watered down version of the Truth.

Dont get me wrong, I am not Bible bashing, nor am I Christianity bashing, quite the contrary, it is out of a deep respect for God and all people of faith that I write what I write, because there is a truth lost in the watering down of Genesis that needs to be understood.  Not only is God male and female, but it is through their cosmic copulation, that all of Creation was brought into existence.

So fast forward to the present.  We are saddled with a Church that not only has a watered down copy of the truth, and a severely edited copy I might add as well, but it is a Church that also demonizes sexuality as well.  Outside of marriage it is a sin, within marriage it is only for procreation, any non-missionary style congress is viewed as an abomination.  But tell me, where is the scriptural basis for these taboos?  Jesus never said anything about it, not that I would trust as the scriptures have severely edited by the Church, neither does the old testament either, with the exception of the story of Onan, the masturbator.  In fact if one reads up on their old testament Bible, and reads the stories of Abraham, indeed taking a wife involved little more than bedding the woman of your choice.  It was a simple natural thing, that once you found the one you liked, you just stayed with them.  No where is there anything about sex is a sin (with the obvious exception of adultery which yes, is wrong).

You may think it kind of odd to bring all this up, but I really think people’s stunted sexuality is one of the biggest problems in society today.  It is an issue near and dear to me right now because I have been  singled out for being a single mother, by the religious wrong in this town, because they view me as sinful.  They’ll never admit it, because we are supposed to live in a country where all faiths and creeds are tolerated and them using their government jobs to enforce a particular ideology would be unconstitutional.  But it is true, not only is their the environmental and social justice work I have done in this town, but there is the other half of my work as a shamanistic/druidic minister.  I dared to walk into their little church club, NAOMI, and asked to be treated as an equal.  We were all fighting on the same side, but it didnt matter, because what I represented would undermine their power as the establishment in this town.  They were afriad of me, and I called them on it, and I angered them by saying that like Jesus I understood persecution, and like Jesus I came to afflict the comfortable, and comfort the afflicted.  Fighting words I know, but I know the truth of the Church, for long before I was a pagan, I was a devout Catholic.

When I say devout, I carried a rosary, prayed everyday, fasted and went to mass daily.  It is very disconcerting to them that one of their most faithful, and some of them do remember me, could go from being a exemplary member of the Church, to what they view as the opposite end of the spectrum, a witch.  But the Church hasnt told you something, and the ministers know it and would love to see me shut up at all costs to keep it hidden.  I was a very devout Christian, and out of that devotion I wanted to better understand my faith, its roots.

Most people know about the inquisition, but what many do not realize is that the Church did heinous acts long before and long after that dark period.  Forcibly converting people from their pagan roots, on pain of death.  Rounding up entire villages, locking them within the city gates and burning it to the ground, women and children  for the crime of “heresy”.  Heresy involving speaking the truth that before the Church, there was another branch of Chrisitianity, the Gnostics.  That maybe Jesus wouldnt like a Church supposedly in his name that spend its time obsessing about money and power, when he had so vehemently spoken out against it during his lifetime.  That maybe the Church being seated in the very town and group of people that crucified him, not the Jews, the Romans, might have been a fundamental and fatal corruption.

But it goes on.  The reason the Church demonizes people like me, a witch is not because I am in league with the devil, I assure you I am not, the devil is a Christian diety conjured up to scare the faithful into submission, just like hell is, and if the demon man with a pitchfork and flames really does exist, why the hell does God in his infinate Love and wisdom allow him to torment us, wouldnt that make God an accessory to his crimes?  Oooh, I know I’m covering all the inflammatory bases today.  No the truth is that evil exists because man creates it with all of his corruption and oppression.  The negative energy collects and becomes concious, and the demons that are born of our true sins do what all demons do, they try to inflict the pain and suffering on others, that was done to them, and created them.  So why does God allow evil in the world, because like any good parent He wont let us get away with our own bologna.  Why should He?  We created it, we learn nothing if He just wipes the slate clean.

The church hates people like me because we really do have a power.  A power that they do not.  There is power in faith, dont get me wrong, but what I represent would undermine all of the Church’s power and influence, and as a result money.  Why?  Because being as devout as I was, (and still am I might add, this is not a case of the best and brightest being corrupted I assure you) God showed me something.  He/She showed me that each and every one of us have the power of God within us, and we can change anything, ANYTHING, if we know the words to speak, and we believe in ourselves and God.  Not exactly the disempowering message of the Church that keeps people cowering in mansions of wood and stone now is it?

No it is the gravest sin of all that black robed priests have hidden the true nature of the Universe, of God and of sex from us for all these years.  The universe reacts to what you believe, theoretical physics has even discovered this.  Literally if you believe something enough, you will it into reality.  The universe is syncronistic, God is speaking to us everyday in the seemingly random coincidences that occur in our everyday life.  They arent random people.  Angels are all around us, balls of light that can only be seen by those whose eyes are not clouded by hate and fear.  beings who can be seen by the pure of heart, and for the record, I see them everyday.

God is a sum total of our energies, and yes the sum is greater than it’s constituent parts.  So like us, God is light, and God is dark.  We get what we give and if you only give bad things, and are consumed by vices, we’ll God is going to give you, what you gave Him.  Sex is empowering.  I have already discussed sexual alchemy in previous posts, but the long and short of it is that there is magic released during the act of love, magic I might add our world is in sore need of.   And do not think I am letting the protestants off the hook either, they preach the same message that sex is a sin, and none of the Christian Churches have the balls to comeoout and say that the wedding at Canaan was indeed Jesus’s wedding, to Mary Magdalene, a priestess in the temple of Isis, and for it she was slandered as a whore.

The church has taught people to supress and stunt our most basic nature, and as a result like anything that is forced into the shadows it becomes demonic, the tormentor.  So what results is that our natural desires come out whether we want them to or not, and you have the rapists and child molesters as a result.  And it is no coincidence that the Church harbors a whole flock of pedophiles.  It is cosmic justice, for what they suppressed, is it cosmic justice for their perversion of the sacred message of Jesus and JHVH, and using it as a tool to gain power and priveledge, and as a result there are more people drawn to the church for status, then there are for faith.

The damage of stunted sexuality goes even deeper though I’m afraid.  For as it becomes demonic and tormenting, people begin to hate themselves.  They begin to hate things that express their sexuality freely, like animals and nature.  And thus the wild things become dangerous things, that need to be conquered and subdued at all cost.  Wild and free things like me too.  Yes, the reason our world is getting trashed, is as simple as we hate ourselves and our sexuality.  The churches sins go very VERY deep.

The Law, is Love.

A few more poignant quotes:

I have examined all the known superstitions of the world, and I do not find in our particular superstition of Christianity one redeeming feature. They are all alike founded on fables and mythology. Millions of innocent men, women and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined and imprisoned. What has been the effect of this coercion? To make one-half the world fools and the other half hypocrites; to support roguery and error all over the earth. (Thomas Jefferson)

The clergy converted the simple teachings of Jesus into an engine for enslaving mankind and adulterated by artificial constructions into a contrivance to filch wealth and power to them-selves. ..these clergy, in fact, constitute the real Anti-Christ. (Thomas Jefferson)

What influence in fact have Christian ecclesiastical establishments had on civil society? In many instances they have been upholding the thrones of political tyranny. In no instance have they been seen as the guardians of the liberties of the people. Rulers who wished to sub-vert the public liberty have found in the clergy convenient auxiliaries. A just government, instituted to secure and perpetuate liberty, does not need the clergy. (President James Madison)
