Temples of Angkor Wat: The most Famous and Remarkable of all of Cambodia's Ancient Temples The temples of Angkor display a coherent set of architectural and decorative elements. Most of the temples are based on the concept of the "temple mountain", i.e. the architectural representation of the mythical Mount Meru, center of the world and home of the gods. In some cases, the main temple building is shaped as a pyramid, in other cases the roofs of the temple sanctuaries are designed as multi-leveled, stylized mountains. Many are surrounded by a moat, representing the ocean around Mount Meru. Mythical figures such as Naga, the serpent king, and apsara, celestial dancers, adorn most of the temples, whether dedicated to a Hindu god or Buddhist practice.

Kabbalah - The Hebrew Alphabet "Twenty-two foundation letters: He ordained them, He hewed them, He combined them, He weighed them, He interchanged them. And He created with them the whole creation and everything to be created in the future." Sefer Yetsirah ("Book of Formation") The Western Mystery Tradition combines many strands of thought and symbolism, but the more esoteric aspects of the Judaic traditions are something of a cornerstone. When reading or writing Hebrew, it is important to remember that it is written from right to left. The following table shows the standard form of each of the 22 Hebrew letters in order, along with a guide to their pronunciation, their basic meanings, and their English transliterations.

The Language of Light This page is dedicated to the incredible beauty and lyrical nature of the ‘Language of Light’. This universal language in it’s many forms is known throughout all of God’s creation by all living beings, both physical and non-physical. Although each race or lifeform creates their own unique variation of this language, the highlighted ‘angelic script’ illustrated below is the original language of Creation. It is also known as the Mother Tongue or the Language of the Angels. To continue, the angelic ‘language of light’ began to manifest itself to me upon my awakening. In addition, each of the angelic scripts and interdimensional symbol codes below are ‘living languages’; sending out resonant beneficial frequencies to all who view them. In conclusion, I would also like to say that it is actually more fluid and faster for me to write and draw these languages and symbols than it is to write my primary language of English. Thanks and enjoy, Bryan

Until now, the site has perhaps been best known for the tomb its excavators dubbed "A1K1," an assemblage of 141 cremated individuals, all but two of whom were aristocratic men who likely fell in battle in foreign lands. Excavated between 1992 and 1996, this elaborate rock-cut tomb was brimming with fantastic burial goods that date from the ninth to the seventh century B.C., including bronze vessels, gold and silver jewelry, and military regalia, as literally befits the burial of Homeric war heroes. History and Excavations The site of Eleutherna includes an acropolis, a polis, and a necropolis.

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to the email newsletter to receive exclusive updates that uplift and inspire. Thanks for visiting! It’s incredible to me how mindfulness has changed my life. When we understand on a very real level that everything we focus on we are bringing into our lives, we begin to see that there are fewer and fewer things that really deserve that kind of power. This is incredibly liberating and powerfully creative. As a result of the laser-like focus of mindfulness, I’ve learned the following life-altering things: 1. 2. It’s also a joy now to hear about new things that others are doing, and to be excited for them. 3. In asking myself, over and over, in so many beautifully present moments, “What do I love now? Should I feel guilty that I’m not: training for a marathon, writing the next great novel, learning Chinese and travelling constantly? 4. Now, it’s obvious to me that being a size 0 is not on my priority list, and that’s perfect. 5.
Welcome to The Key of Solomon journal of the golden dawn research center UFO Evidence : Ancient Astronauts - General The sighting of strange objects in the sky may actually predate the emergence of modern man. Perhaps the earliest depiction of cylindrical objects resembling spacecraft, with what might be their extraterrestrial occupants, are those carved on a granite mountain and on rocks on an island in Hunan Province, China. They have been assigned a tentative age of 47,000 years, which puts them within the time-span of Neanderthal man, predating modern Homo sapiens. articles & documents The sighting of strange objects in the sky may actually predate the emergence of modern man.

Kabbalah and Jewish Mysticism When non-Jews ask about Judaism, they commonly ask questions like: Do you believe in heaven and hell? In angels or the devil? What happens to the soul after death? What is the nature of G-d and the universe? The answers to questions like these define most religions; in fact, I have heard some people say that the purpose of religion is to answer these kinds of questions. Mysticism in Judaism Mysticism and mystical experiences have been a part of Judaism since the earliest days. In the middle ages, many of these mystical teachings were committed to writing in books like the Zohar. Like most subjects of Jewish belief, the area of mysticism is wide open to personal interpretation. The mystical school of thought came to be known as Kabbalah, from the Hebrew root Qof-Beit-Lamed, meaning "to receive, to accept." Kabbalah: The Misunderstood Doctrine Kabbalah is one of the most grossly misunderstood parts of Judaism. I do not mean to suggest that magic is not a part of Kabbalah. Suggested Reading
