what the heck is a kalash?

Okay, I was utterly bored out of mind this evening. So, to remedy my boredom, I used the Internet to seek out new and unusual things to share with the cyberspace world.

As traveled via the web, I stumbled upon this stunning photo of an elderly woman and a young girl. At first, I chalked it up to another Viking invasion, but this isn’t the case. They belong to Kalash Tribe located in northwestern Pakistan.

Protected by the Hindu Kush mountain range lives this culture of people Muslims call Kafirs or “infidels”.

Among the region known as Kafiristan lies the town of Brir, considered one of the last remaining settlements of the Kalash — or “wearers of black.” Its inhabitants consider themselves the direct descendants of Alexander the Great. The 3,500 souls are the last enclave of pagan tribes people.

Incredibly, the Kalash have not changed much over the centuries. They make their own wine, elevate animals to religious status and believe in mountaintop fairies. To find out more about the tribe, read more.

Their gods, like those of the ancient Greeks, are split up into male and female deities and they claim they once belonged to highly literate culture until their books were burned by barbarian tribes. Shown in these pictures celebrating their annual Spring festival, the Kalash still maintain a fertility rite where a teenage boy is sent alone into the surrounding woods for a year and when he returns is treated to a feast and the mating rites to as many of the Kalash women he chooses.

My Meeting with the Workman’s Comp People

I had a lovely meeting with the state today because my employer’s checks, etc that Workman’s Comp requested from him hit their office today.

It seems my boss has a little problem. Out of all 5 employees, I’m to only one with a 1099. The others don’t have 1099s or W-2s. They asked me who certain people were, and I told them that they were employees just like me.

So, tomorrow my employer will be hit with 9 citations. Does he knows it’s me? Yes. Do I care? No. Since he retaliated right after he got Workman’s Comp letter and reduced my hours to 12/wk instead of 32/wk and tried to stick me with his share of my taxes, I really detest this man.

Next comes the Oklahoma Tax Commission. They are extremely interested in my 1099s, and the two checks my boss wrote to me to cover his share of Social Security and Medicare. He wrote that on the checks. So, I kindly faxed them over to the OTC.

Then, of course, the IRS will be visiting him next. This won’t be pretty at all!

Here’s the email from my boss that I sent over to Workman’s Comp.  Although the evidence was strong before, I thought this might be the icing on the cake. I’m a very thorough woman, and yes, I trapped him since I emailed him about the schedule and ask him to reply to the email because I didn’t want to bother His Highness at work. This is coming from a man who claims to have no employees and only one independent contractor. This is golden.

Stay tuned for more adventures with the Oklahoma Tax Commission within the next month.

When the IRS is finished with him, I’ll reveal his business. This city is going to be shocked!

Schedule for Week of Feb 2:

Tues Feb 3 Hours 1200 – 1800

Thur Feb 5 1200 – 1800

I’ll work you into more hours for the last part of Feb. Since you stated you were not coming back til you got your taxes cleared up, I didn’t know when you would be back, so I had to hire more part time employees to fill in your gap along with —- and ——. ——is back and —-will be back in about a week, so we now will have 2 Full time and 5 Part time.

I’m glad to hear you are ready to come back.

Be Afraid to Work Contract Labor. Be Very Afraid

Dear Joe Blow:
First of all, I would like to commend the efforts of the Small Business Administration for protecting America’s small businesses men everywhere. Both my father (before his death) and my brother own a small business.
Your headline on your website states that the SBA is “the voice for small business in Federal Government…..” Others, however, should have a voice too.
I have a problem that I am sure is not unique. The small business owner for whom I am employed does not like to follow federal and state regulations. He has been paying me as contract labor for the past 14 months, as well as the other 4 employees. We are all clearly employees. We work in his store, sell his furniture, use his office equipment, work under his supervision, and he pays us by the hour. By the way, my 3949 A to the IRS was mailed out certified today.
My employer does not have Workman’s Compensation on any of us either. I notified Workman’s Comp, and the audit will start soon. Followed by an audit by the Oklahoma Tax Commission, and then, the IRS.
Since he is certain that I am the one who called Workman’s Comp., he has retaliated against me. Three days after he received his compliance letter, he reduced my work hours from 32 hours a week to 12 hours a week. No problem, right? I can get unemployment checks. Wrong. He gave me 1099s, so although I qualify for unemployment, I cannot get it because there is no record of my wages. No problem again, right? I can get a lawyer. Wrong. Because he has under fifteen employees, not only will a lawyer not help, neither will the government agencies that take my tax money.
So please give yourself a pat on the back for giving a voice to small business men while the SBA and lobbyists silenced the voice of small business employees.
However, this business will probably end up to be another one that bites the dust because the SBA has made it so easy for them to hang themselves.
Have a wonderful week,
Jane Doe

How to take care of a dirt bag boss

My boss of 14 months hired me as an independent contract rather than an employee. Why would a boss do this? Well, there are all kinds of perks for the employer, such as not having to pay his/her part of my Social Security, Medicare, and Unemployment. Wow! What a money-saving deal for the employer, but not for the employee.

The employee ends up paying his/her share plus the boss’s share. The IRS has strict guide lines that spell out the differences between the two. So, if you’re curious, go to their website.

Here’s my email to him. The names and places have been omitted to protect the innocent and to avoid a lawsuit from the guilty.

Don’t bother mailing the checks to cover your part of my taxes . I’ll be there Sat. afternoon to get them, as well as my payroll check from last week. By the way, when you went to ——, I worked 47 hours, so I need my time and a half, which would be an additional $105.

Also, you said that your accountant told you that you had to start taking taxes out on me because I had been there a year. Didn’t your accountant explain to you the concept of independent labor? And, why didn’t you offer to pay your share then instead letting me figure it out all by myself? If I were you, I’d fire your accountant for being a retard!!!

Thanks bunches and see ya tomorrow!

The Flower of Life

Introduction

The “Flower of Life” can be found in all major religions of the world.
It contains the patterns of creation as they emerged from the “Great Void”. Everything is made from the Creator’s thought.
After the creation of the Seed of Life the same vortex’s motion was continued, creating the next structure known as the Egg of Life.
This structure forms the basis for music, as the distances between the spheres is identical to the distances between the tones and the half tones in music. It is also identical to the cellular structure of the third embryonic division (The first cell divides into two cells, then to four cells then to eight). Thus this same structure as it is further developed, creates the human body and all of the energy systems including the ones used to create the Merkaba. If we continue creating more and more spheres we will end up with the structure called the Flower of Life.

Egg-of-Life Stages.jpg

The flower of life holds a secret symbol created by drawing 13 circles out of the Flower of Life. By doing this, one can discover the most important and sacred pattern in the universe. This is the source of all that exists; it’s called the Fruit of Life. It contains 13 informational systems. Each one explains another aspect of reality. Thus these systems are able to give us access to everything ranging from the human body to the galaxies. In the first system, for example, it’s possible to create any molecular structure and any living cellular structure that exists in the universe. In short every living creature.

The most common form of the “Flower of Life” is hexagonal pattern (where the center of each circle is on the circumference of six surrounding circles of the same diameter), made up of 19 complete circles and 36 partial circular arcs, enclosed by a large circle.

The “Seed of Life” is formed from seven circles being placed with sixfold symmetry, forming a pattern of circles and lenses, which acts as a basic component of the Flower of Life’s design.

The Temple of Osiris at Abydos, Egypt contains the oldest to date example. it is carved in granite and may possibly represent the Eye of Ra a symbol of the authority of the pharaoh. Other examples can be found in Phoenician, Assyrian, Indian, Asian, Middle Eastern, and medieval art.

Flower-of-Life da-Vinci 02.jpg

Leonardo da Vinci has studied the Flower of Life’s form and its mathematical properties. He has drawn the Flower of Life itself, as well as components therein, such as the Seed of Life. He has drawn geometric figures representing shapes such as the platonic solids, a sphere, a torus, etc., and has also used the golden ratio of phi in his artwork; all of which may be derived from the Flower of Life design.

Where Math, Geometry and Spirituality meets

The flower of life shape contains a secret shape known as the fruit of life that consists of 13 spheres that hold many mathematical and geometrical laws. These laws represent the whole universe. Giving the flower of life to someone is like giving them the whole universe in one jewel.

The Flower of Life can be found in all major religions of the world. In Egypt, the source of all the monotheistic religions, the “Flower of Life”, can be found in the ancient Temple of Abydos. In Israel, it can be found in ancient synagogues in the Galilee and in Mesada.

People reported physical and psychological changes after wearing this pendant – faster heart beats, prophetic dreams, breaking of illusions, seeing the reality as it is and becoming free from long time fears.

The flower of life is one of the strongest sacred geometric shapes!

Sacred Geometry – Flower of Life

By Andrew Monkman

I believe the complete ancient flower of life is an inter-dimensional tool, a portal,
a stargate, a window into what some call the inter space plains. The original flower of life (found on several pillars within “the Osireion” at abydos in Egypt) is incomplete, because it is only the first layer of three (pic1+2).

[FOLcarvedwall.jpg]

2. The Flower of Life set in stone
at the Temple of Osiris at Abydos, Egypt.

The complete flower has the other two layers added, making it three dimensional (pic3). If you relax (sit three feet away from the screen) and let the flower slowly draw your eyes out of focus, the flower will open. Try and not focus on any one point, blankly stare, take the flower in as a whole. You may get a headache and itchy eyes, this will quickly disappear. We do not see with our eyes, we see through our eyes. Let your mind focus, don’t fight it.

What appears is a reptilian entity. This creature is very frightening and fierce looking, but i can assure you it can do you no harm. I know this sounds mad, but it is true and very real. After you get used to interacting with the reptilian, you can move on to the next entity. To interact with the second being you must rotate the flower by 30degrees and repeat the steps.

[folbeijing.jpg] [folbeijing2.jpg]
Flower of Life – Beijing, China

The second being is the Chinese dragon ( the fu dog). This creature is even more frightening than the first, so be prepared. Again, this creature cannot harm you in anyway. Somehow these entities are in suspended animation. They are real but they do not and cannot move. I know within freemasonry, they call the first entity “the khaibit man”. You need to have been initiated into the 10th degree to be aware of the khaibit man. As part of the initiation into the 10th degree, the khaibit man is conjured up in front of you.
I am not a freemason, but my father has been a freemason for over 40 years.
He has been through the 10th degree. When I made this discovery and drew the complete flower, I was living in Edinburgh. I phoned my father who was living at home in Kirkwall on the Orkney isles. When I told my father what I had seen,
he could not believe what I was saying. He told me that the only way I could know what I was telling him was if I had been through the 10th degree.
Obviously I’m not a mason and hadn’t been through the 10th, so from that day on my father has told me everything he knows about freemasonry. He also told me that his granny (my great granny Fox) told him when he was 16 years old, that someday one of his children would discover something that would affect the whole world.
He is now convinced that the complete flower is this discovery.

You may know that the complete flower contains the kabbalah`s tree of life, the fruit, the egg and the seed of life (pic. 4 & 5).

4. The Kabbalah Tree of Life derived from the Flower of Life.


5. The Kabbalah Tree of Life derived from the Flower of Life.

The complete flower also contains the three dimensional metatron cube (pic6), which holds all the Platonic solids (pic7). Not just the building blocks of life, but the building blocks of creation itself.

6. Metatron Cube

7. Platonic Solids

I found this symbol on a knights templar tombstone (pic. 9),  found within the
St Magnus cathedral in Kirkwall, Orkney (pic. 8).

I believe this symbol is a representation of the egg of life (pic.10),which is the second rotation of the first layer of the complete flower of life (pic. 11).

10. The egg of life (left)
11. The second rotation of the first layer of the complete flower of life (right)

I was born and bred and now live back in Kirkwall. At no time did I ever get taught at school, that there was any knights templars who came from or to Orkney.

For whatever reason,  the computer generated flower (pic. 13) does not work for the contemplation. It does contain all Freemasonry’s sacred symbols.

I thought I`d add this picture as you will recognize the pattern (pic14).

14. Pattern of snake’s skin

The complete flower of life does have another use. If you overlay a map (after getting the correct scale) with the complete flower of life, all sacred sites, standing stones etc, will sit at the centre of six points. This picture gives you idea how the grid looks (pic.15).

Tree of Life


Tree of Life

The Tree of Life is one of the most familiar of the Sacred Geometry Symbols. The structure of the Tree of Life is connected to the sacred teachings of the Jewish Kabbalah but can be seen in other traditions such as the ancient Egyptian.

The Tree of Life is explained in Sefer Yetzira (“Book of Creation”). The book explained the creation as a process involving the 10 divine numbers (sefirot) of God the Creator and the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet. The 10 sefirot together with the 22 letters constitute the “32 paths of secret wisdom”.

The Tree of Life is used as a sign of unity and love.

The Tree of Life pendant forms the key to God’s original creation. The pendant fits exactly to the Seed of Life and the Flower of Life.

Eighth wonder of the world?

Eighth wonder of the world? The stunning temples secretly carved out below ground by ‘paranormal’ eccentric

by HAZEL COURTENEY
Last updated at 09:58 22 November 2007

Nestling in the foothills of the Alps in northern Italy, 30 miles from the ancient city of Turin, lies the valley of Valchiusella. Peppered with medieval villages, the hillside scenery is certainly picturesque.

But it is deep underground, buried into the ancient rock, that the region’s greatest wonders are concealed.

Hall of the Earth: An amazing room built on the ‘supernatural’ visions of its creator

Enlarge the image

Here, 100ft down and hidden from public view, lies an astonishing secret – one that has drawn comparisons with the fabled city of Atlantis and has been dubbed ‘the Eighth Wonder of the World’ by the Italian government.

For weaving their way underneath the hillside are nine ornate temples, on five levels, whose scale and opulence take the breath away.

Constructed like a three-dimensional book, narrating the history of humanity, they are linked by hundreds of metres of richly decorated tunnels and occupy almost 300,000 cubic feet – Big Ben is 15,000 cubic feet.

Few have been granted permission to see these marvels.

Indeed, the Italian government was not even aware of their existence until a few years ago.

But the ‘Temples of Damanhur’ are not the great legacy of some long-lost civilisation, they are the work of a 57-year-old former insurance broker from northern Italy who, inspired by a childhood vision, began digging into the rock.

It all began in the early Sixties when Oberto Airaudi was aged ten. From an early age, he claims to have experienced visions of what he believed to be a past life, in which there were amazing temples.

Around these he dreamed there lived a highly evolved community who enjoyed an idyllic existence in which all the people worked for the common good.

More bizarrely still, Oberto appeared to have had a supernatural ability: the gift of “remote viewing” – the ability to travel in his mind’s eye to describe in detail the contents of any building.

“My goal was to recreate the temples from my visions,” he says.

Oberto – who prefers to use the name ‘Falco’ – began by digging a trial hole under his parent’s home to more fully understand the principals of excavation.

But it was only as he began a successful career as an insurance broker that he began to search for his perfect site.

In 1977, he selected a remote hillside where he felt the hard rock would sustain the structures he had in mind.

A house was built on the hillside and Falco moved in with several friends who shared his vision. Using hammers and picks, they began their dig to create the temples of Damanhur – named after the ancient subterranean Egyptian temple meaning City of Light – in August 1978.

As no planning permission had been granted, they decided to share their scheme only with like-minded people.

Volunteers, who flocked from around the world, worked in four-hour shifts for the next 16 years with no formal plans other than Falco’s sketches and visions, funding their scheme by setting up small businesses to serve the local community.

By 1991, several of the nine chambers were almost complete with stunning murals, mosaics, statues, secret doors and stained glass windows. But time was running out on the secret.

The first time the police came it was over alleged tax evasion and still the temples lay undiscovered. But a year later the police swooped on the community demanding: “Show us these temples or we will dynamite the entire hillside.”

Falco and his colleagues duly complied and opened the secret door to reveal what lay beneath.

Three policemen and the public prosecutor hesitantly entered, but as they stooped down to enter the first temple – named the Hall of the Earth – their jaws dropped.

Inside was a circular chamber measuring 8m in diameter.

A central sculpted column, depicting a three dimensional man and woman, supported a ceiling of intricately painted glass.

The astonished group walked on to find sculpted columns covered with gold leaf, more than 8m high.

Stunned by what they had found, the authorities decided to seize the temples on behalf of the government.

“By the time they had seen all of the chambers, we were told to continue with the artwork, but to cease further building, as we had not been granted planning permission,” says Esperide Ananas, who has written a new book called Damanhur, Temples Of Humankind.

Retrospective permission was eventually granted and today the ‘Damanhurians’ even have their own university, schools, organic supermarkets, vineyards, farms, bakeries and award-winning eco homes.

They do not worship a spiritual leader, though their temples have become the focus for group meditation.

‘They are to remind people that we are all capable of much more than we realise and that hidden treasures can be found within every one of us once you know how to access them,’ says Falco.
