Freemasonry

Freemasonry
Freemasonry is a fraternal organisation that traces its origins to the local fraternities of stonemasons, which from the end of the fourteenth century regulated the qualifications of masons and their interaction with authorities and clients. The degrees of freemasonry, its gradal system, retain the three grades of medieval craft guilds, those of Apprentice, journeyman or fellow (now called Fellowcraft), and Master Mason. These are the degrees offered by craft, or blue lodge Freemasonry. There are additional degrees, which vary with locality and jurisdiction, and are now administered by different bodies than the craft degrees. The basic, local organisational unit of Freemasonry is the lodge. The lodges are usually supervised and governed at the regional level (usually coterminous with either a state, province, or national border) by a Grand Lodge or Grand Orient.

witch By Doreen Valiente Hear now the words of the witches, The secrets we hid in the night, When dark was our destiny’s pathway, That now we bring forth into the light. Mysterious water and fire, The earth and the wide-ranging air. By hidden quintessence we know them, And will and keep silent and dare. The birth and rebirth of all nature, The passing of winter and spring, We share with the life universal, Rejoice in the magickal ring. Four times in the year the Great Sabbat Returns, And the witches are seen, At Lammas and Candlemass dancing, On May Even and old Hallowe’en. When day-time and night-time are equal, When sun is at greatest and least, The four Lesser Sabbats are summoned, Again witches gather in feast. Thirteen silver moons in a year are, Thirteen is the coven’s array, Thirteen times at esbat make merry, For each golden year and a day. The power was passed down the ages, Each time between woman and man, Each century unto the other, Ere time and the ages began. The Witches' Rune

Templarhistory.com Pablo Picasso Picasso, Henri Matisse and Marcel Duchamp are regarded as the three artists who most defined the revolutionary developments in the plastic arts in the opening decades of the 20th century, responsible for significant developments in painting, sculpture, printmaking and ceramics.[4][5][6][7] Picasso demonstrated extraordinary artistic talent in his early years, painting in a realistic manner through his childhood and adolescence. During the first decade of the 20th century, his style changed as he experimented with different theories, techniques, and ideas. His work is often categorised into periods. While the names of many of his later periods are debated, the most commonly accepted periods in his work are the Blue Period (1901–1904), the Rose Period (1904–1906), the African-influenced Period (1907–1909), Analytic Cubism (1909–1912), and Synthetic Cubism (1912–1919). Early life Pablo Picasso and his sister Lola, c.1889 Picasso showed a passion and a skill for drawing from an early age. Fame

Witchcraft, Wiccan and Pagan Index | Celtic Connection Lucifer:  H.P. Blavatsky's London Magazine "We are about to found a magazine of our own, Lucifer. Don’t allow yourself to be frightened: it is not the devil, into which the Catholics have falsified the name of the Morning Star, sacred to all the ancient world, of the ‘bringer of light,’ Phosphoros, as the Romans often called the Mother of God and Christ. And in St. John’s Revelation does it not say, ‘I, Jesus, the morning star’? I wish people would take this to mind, at least. It is possible that the rebellious angel was called Lucifer before his fall, but after his transformation he must not be called so...."

Braccia: come potenziare la muscolatura in casa con semplici esercizi Posted by By admin at 27 agosto, at 03 : 36 AM Print Questi esercizi permettono di sviluppare i bicipiti con 2 pesi da 3 chili ognuno. Dovremo pero’ lavorare con 2 pesi per volta, sollevandoli insieme, con la stessa mano, realizzando almeno 3 serie con da 10 movimenti. E’ importante lavorare con lentezza poiché dei movimenti troppo veloci potrebbero essere del tutto controproducenti. Ricordiamoci di sederci in posizione comoda, in questo modo faremo lavorare soltanto il bicipite e non sforzeremo il resto della muscolatura. Appoggiando il gomito contro il nostro ginocchio, riusciremo ad eseguire il movimento nel modo corretto. Potremo sedere su uno step o, in alternativa, su un semplice sgabello che possiamo facilmente reperire tra gli arredi di casa nostra.

Wicca for the Beginner First, who we are not: we are not Satanists. We do not worship the devil. In fact, we don’t even have a devil. (see history of witchcraft) Moreover, we are not old crones who ride broomsticks and cast spells on unsuspecting people, perhaps to turn them into toads. We are not all women, though it may be that the majority of witches are women—this from millennium of disempowerment by the male dominated Judeo-Christian tradition. We are not evil. Really, that pretty much describes us: witches are just ordinary people who use the Powers to enjoy a good life. There is no such thing as a black witch, no matter what the color of their skin. Ever mind the Rule of Three Three time what thou givest returns to thee This lesson well, thou must learn, Thee only gets what thou dost earn! Seriously, we are not dour folks. The Ways of Wicca can be divided into two acts: Magic and Devotion. In short, devotion involves a sort of union with the Powers of the Universe. What about Goddesses and Gods? Reni
