I wrote a pretty long post about Symbolism and its Uses which can explain how many of today's symbols thought to be evil actually had positive
"They will say anything to try and prove how an upside-down pentacle is good." Ummm...they were considered good.
quote: Now, the pentagram. Why is it linked so heavily to evil? It has been used by almost every ancient culture. The Mayans used it. It has been used
in India, China, and Egypt. It has been found on cave walls, in Babylonian drawings, and in Hebrew scriptures. Early Christians wore it as an emblem,
maybe to symbolize the 5 wounds of Christ. The Jewish kabalistic tradition uses it. So has the Christians, Freemasons, Wiccians, Pagans, and
yes...Satanists too. All used the pentagram at various times.
BUT, in thousands of years of history...the first connection to evil has only been in the 19th century, well AFTER almost every previous use of it.
I was reading through the thread you started - people swung it off topic as usual. Let's go into some detail together.
Many Mystics or clairvoyants throughout all time have had the ability to see the chakras or sacred disks of other souls. Many Mystics will all agree
that the pentagram is a symbol of black magic or a negative projection of some sort - yet ONLY when inverted. I have studied this for sometime and
besides acting rather comical, I am a little concerned at just how gullible most people are when entering into the occult sciences.
For example: When someone has been cursed by black magician, the actual form or creation of that negative and powerful thought has used a type of
ether form to allow it the strength to go to the other fellow and thus, attach itself to the corresponding chakras of him or her. Now depending what
your culture is, you can see these thoughts appearing from the third eye and leave toward the person who is being attacked - these forms may appear as
a snake, or of a coyote or black cloud depending on your culture religion, etc.
Now, let’s go deeper. I have noticed something common when you actually look upon the person's chakras. Well let’s say that the typical
religious fanatic gives a hateful but less powerful thought for another person of another religion. The image will appear as a blue inverted
pentagram on the victim's chakras. But if it is a black inverted pentagram, then that means that the black magician is trying to kill you. So, not
only is the inverted pentagram itself almost definitively and symbolically evil or a sign of corruption of the Holy Spirit mind but the color itself
also identifies the level of danger etc.
So let’s go back to what you're saying now. Some cultures may harmlessly use the inverted pentagram correct? Heck let's day these people really
never understood that the Tree of Life of Kabala is supposed to always be right-side up. Ok, well fine I'll give them that much. But now we are
also coming into an Age of Aquarius where the actions of many cannot ever be truly understood - so much confusion these days.
So how does one proceed? Well it is my believe that to proceed in this new age we first of all must learn to understand that the intention behind the
action is VERY important. Sometimes the action is wrong but the person has great intent, right? But other times the actions seem harmless but the
intention is dark in nature or opposes love.
Now assuming the intentions behind the action of much we are seeing today with not only the Republicans but many:
Since most Americans are of a Christian tradition of faith, does it not seem rather antagonistic if not downright insulting, that these rulers do not
share the majority's faith and yet will not share with them anything? THEY - OUR ELECTED OFFICALS do this all too often and I think most Christian
people have a right to know, don’t you?
I am not a Buddhist but when I enter the Monastery I will remove my shoes. I also do the same for the Muslims tradition when I enter in tot eh
Mosque. So, how come our Great leaders are immune to offering the people of the America’s the same courtesy for the majority of the Christian
people? Remember, the people of America do not need much else than the honest truth.
Do you have any idea at all?
