Elected Leader or Gangster?

Sunday, 02 March 2014  |  Skip Conover
Elected Leader or Gangster?

 

How do you tell the difference between a democratically elected leader, who will work for the best interests of their people, and a gangster, who will jam their ideology down the throats of their people and steal their assets?  You can't tell from an election.  Adolph Hitler was elected by the German people to be Chancellor of Germany, with copious use of jack boots and rifle barrels...

The Devil's Desiderata

Astronomers assumed for years that there were planets similar to earth throughout the universe… planets that could possibly harbor life and even intelligent beings. Now astronomers are regularly finding evidence of planets circling other stars (“exoplanets”). This virtually guarantees what many of us thought; we are not alone. Or does it?

There is a chilling alternative theory, namely that the very...

The political neglect this map represents was depicted in the 1980 movie "Coal Miner's Daughter," which showed the truth of the poor side of American life.

If Tattoos Could Talk: Fangs, Gangs, and the Pangs of Youth

If Tattoos Could Talk: Fangs, Gangs, and the Pangs of Youth

Humans have been tattooing skin, filing teeth, and spiked with ornaments since prehistoric times: sometimes to stand out, sometimes to blend into a group. The 5000+ year old Ice Man (Oetzi) uncovered in the Alps has tattoos that may have telegraphed identity or magical thinking, or worked to relieve, physically or psychosomatically, his local aches and pains. Or all of these.

Today, tattoos have pr...

The Gift of Love

The Gift of Love

Life energy moves through all living things. A seed sprouts, growing and becoming a tree, blossoming and bearing fruit. As long as the tree is healthy and without disease its life energy will follow a path. This is not a scientific declaration, but a poetic one: energy creates transformations in form.

In human terms, we call this energy ‘libido.’ The potential transformations of our energy are shap...

Freedom to Feel

As a young married woman I was utterly captivated by the film, Blume in Love, for reasons I didn’t understand. The same thing had happened three years earlier when I read my all-time favorite book: The Magus, by John Fowles. Why did I find it so incredibly fascinating? Did it have anything in common with Blume in Love, or were these just random coincidences? I didn’t know then. Forty years later, ...

Jung’s First Dream, The Mad God Dionysus and a Madness Sanctuary called Diabasis


With a loud piercing cry, the bare chested Native American warrior hurled his tomahawk at John Weir Perry with full force. John told me that at the last second in the dream, he caught it between both his palms just before it was buried in his heart. “Yes!” cried Jung- “See, your inner wild man is demanding your attention!” That was the memorable response to the 22 year old Perry, who had just brav...

Caryatids and Queens

Femininity is universally associated with beauty, softness, tenderness, receptivity, relationship, and caring. While some equate these qualities with weakness, Spirit Warriors know they make us stronger than we ever imagined possible. Of the many symbols suggesting this kind of strength, none speaks as strongly to me as the caryatid.

THE COST OF RUNNING AWAY FROM PAINS… – ACILARDAN KAÇMANIN BEDELİ…

Instead of facing our reality, and living in it, we create fake lives, and we constantly run away from our pains and fears. The Pandora’s Box, in which we carry round our past, we keep as securely locked as we can, believing that we have destroyed the nightmares inside. Instead, we’ve let them direct us.

By running away from our pains, we’ve let them govern us and we make ourselves their servant. T...
