Surreal Christology (part 4): The Androgyny | The Blog of Baphomet. Part of what appeals to me about Surrealism both as an artistic school and also as a way of engaging with human experience, is the way in which it seeks to embrace experiences of fluidity and uncertainty. Surrealist art often dives deep into rich realms of the unconscious where attempts at neat categorisation quickly start coming apart at the seams. This is a twilight realm in which polarities such as animal versus human, safety versus threat and male versus female are both challenged and played with.

I have previously written about the way in which Queer theory and experience has provided for me a language for understanding the blurry liminality that I experienced in relation to my sexuality and in my spiritual explorations. Queer theory often provides an irreverent take on the complex interplay between biological sex and the way in which we perform our genders.

Why You Should Learn How to Redeem Lawful Money. By If you knew that you have always had a choice to either endorse the private credit of an International Banking cartel, which would then lead you straight into financial hell, or to elect to turn the fiat currency note into Lawful Money by making a demand to have it redeemed for lawful money… which would you choose to do? This is an excellent starting point. FEDERAL RESERVE NOTES in their default form is an invitation to endorse private credit and slides one down the slippery slope into financial hell.

However, there is always a way to correct a mistake. But, remember, the first time it is a mistake, the second time it is a choice, and the third time its negligence. So choose wisely. America has a history that is not taught which reveals that a Central Bank has always lead the people into disaster. I will be honest here and state for and on the record that Americans are not looking to intelligent for not learning by their example.

Want To Be Successful In Music? Try Thinking Of It Like Your Job | ReverbNation Blog. Having musical talent and intuition is good, but if you really want to succeed in music, you’ll need much more than that. Whether it’s the discipline it takes to spend hours at a time practicing an instrument or the planning and communication skills needed to book shows and pitch new music to press outlets, sheer talent isn’t enough to make it in music––especially in today’s DIY-driven industry. If you want to be successful in music, you might want to try thinking about it like your job.

A job is more serious than a hobby If you want to find any sort of success in music, you’ll have to stop thinking of practicing, playing shows, and writing songs as a hobby. Seeing music as an actual job is a better way to go about it because with a job, the stakes are higher and much more is required of you. People stay in their jobs and do things they don’t always want to do because, well, they have to. When it’s time to spread the word about your music, it’s time to look at Promote It. Jayarava's Raves. Supreme Court states: Felons Do Not Lose Property Right in Owned Firearms — NFA Gun Trust Lawyer Blog — May 18, 2015. We have been telling people for years that a properly drafted gun trust can help protect your firearms in the event that you become a prohibited person in the future.

Today the Supreme Court came to a Unanimous Decisions supporting our view that a trust can be used to hold firearms for a liquidating event or for the future beneficiaries of the trust without being lost. The court held that “while a convicted felon is prohibited from “possessing” firearms pursuant to 18 U.S.C. 922(g), nothing strips the individual of his/her property interest in the firearms and the individual retains “the right merely to sell or otherwise dispose of their firearms,” provided the felon lacks all control over the firearms. Our Gun Trusts already provide for this ability to just this type of purpose. The Court also held that “§ 922(g) does not bar such a transfer unless it would allow the felon to later control the guns, so that he could either use them or direct their use.”

Question: I’ve been reading the biblical story where Miriam speaks ill about her brother Moses, and her punish­ment seems completely dispro­portionate to her “crime.” She is afflicted with leprosy, and sent out of the camp for seven full days. All this for expressing concern about her brother’s marriage? I have always considered Miriam an example of strength and piety. Without her, Moses would never have been born, and surely would not have survived in the Nile. The way I see it, she spoke to Aaron only out of concern for her brother and his wife, Tzipporah.

For this she was punished so harshly? Answer: First, let’s consider what we know about Miriam: As a young girl in Egypt, she midwifed alongside her mother Yocheved. Later, after the Exodus and the splitting of the Red Sea, Miriam led all the women and girls in song and dance. The Talmud teaches that like her two brothers, Miriam died through “the kiss of death” from G‑d. Miriam’s Sin The Great Question Miriam meant well.
