The Serpents of Life and Death

The bridge between spirituality and money is happiness. But happiness isn’t obtained without peace and peace is unreachable without balance. The purpose of our existence in a material world as well as the reason for thousands of reincarnations on earth is found within such paradigm. In the materialistic perspective about reality we notice a force confronting the need for equalization of complements in the path for spiritual development. Therefore, in its most metaphysical meaning, we can perceive the concept of balance as referring to the interaction between fire and water, earth and air, yin and yang, strength and weakness, action and inaction, man and woman, conscious and unconscious, and so on. In its pragmatic form, such duality is seen in the divergence between spirituality and money, as these two elements can be acknowledged as the lowest and highest forms of being – mind and matter, but also body and soul. The evaluation of concepts as high and low or good and bad, however, only finds a realization in the human mind, deluded by material operations related to space and time, and unaware of the importance each dualistic meaning has within the eternal cycle of life and death. A person can assume the possibility of life without one of the two poles, but such believe reveals false within the dynamics that affect existence. Inside this truth, those focusing on the first stage manifestations of the Kundalini energy and the ones doing it on the seventh, both struggle throughout life and between themselves, never reaching freedom from reincarnation, even though their spiritual level may seem different. Upon contemplating the depredating act of beings converged to obsessive spiritual studies begging for money on the shores of river Ganges, in the holy and oldest world city - Varanasi, or Sadhus dedicated to the exploration of drugs’ effects in Rishikesh, any clear mind would understand that the word sacrifice has been somehow misunderstood by those whose texts followed clearly indicate the opposite, revealing the need for a balance between spirituality and wealth, and their source as being the same. The Rig Veda, for example, clearly states that “A combination of righteous knowledge and righteous actions help us to earn wealth”. Never were humans intended to prosper in health, intellect and spirit or body, mind and soul, without everything that supports and promotes life, money included. “The only question with wealth is: what do you do with it” (John D. Rockefeller). Wealth has become the main determinant of life on planet earth and a massive karmic challenge that, if surpassed, can lead to prosperity in all realms of existence and ascension, otherwise consume everyone in the fire of desire, self-destroying the mind and mankind, and not only that, as it can lead to the corruption of the spirit in and beyond the afterlife. When the bible refers to “the love of money” as being “the root of all kinds of evil” (Timothy 6:10) is talking about a life dominated by the force of monetary achievements, or the Serpent of Death, an energy leading all current affairs on this planet. This force is not under control and has not been properly assimilated. The study that this book proposes is based on the premise that life depends on the correct balance of forces controlling existence, as within this model, human beings ascend spiritually if they can incorporate financial gaining in life but descend to a lower world if failing to do so. The financial crisis that many nations, once prosperous, face today and many more will in the near future is based on this hidden energy, untamed by any other. The secret here exposed has been so well-hidden for thousands of years that the masses would see its revelation as blasphemy and, nevertheless, it couldn’t be applied by elite secret societies for thousands of years if not true.

The Wisdom of the Serpent

This book traces the images of spiritual initiation in religious rituals and myths of resurrection, poems and epics, cycles of nature, and art and dreaming.

The Wisdom of the Serpent

The tribal initiation of the shaman, the archetype of the serpent, exemplifies the death of the self and a rebirth into transcendent life. This book traces the images of spiritual initiation in religious rituals and myths of resurrection, poems and epics, cycles of nature, and art and dreaming. It dramatizes the metamorphosis from a common experience of death's inevitability into a transcendent freedom beyond individual limitations. "This is a classic work in analytical psychology that offers crucial insights on the meaning of death symbolism (and its inevitably accompanying rebirth and resurrection symbolism) as part of the great theme of initiation, of which [Henderson] is the world's foremost psychological interpreter. This material is really the next step after the hero myth that Joseph Campbell has made so popular, and provides an understanding of how not to use the hero myth in an inflated way as a psychology of mastery, but as an attainment progressively to be died beyond. [Henderson] is helped by the presence of Maud Oakes, who is a trained anthropologist with exquisite taste in her choice of mythic materials and respect for their original contexts."--John Beebe

The Summation of Mankind  from Creation  Life  Death  and Beyond

Through revelation, Christian faith, and visions--the contents of this book was revealed to me. I was able to use the King James version of the Bible and a pictorial Bible dictionary to substantiate the information presented. Remembering, through time, the Bible, which is a book where the holy scriptures are contained, has been transcribed historically by man for centuries; however, this book is not an attempt to interpret the contents of the Bible, for the Bible should never be altered by additions or deletions, the words of God are to remain the same forever. If mankind would allow the spirit of God to enter into their hearts, He will guide them to do His will. Our God is in control of everything in creation and nothing is above or beyond Him.

The Life and Death of Jason  A Poem

This vintage book contains William Morris's 1867 poem, "The Life and Death of Jason: A Poem". It was originally intended as a story to accompany "The Earthly Paradise", a work presented as a poetic collection recounted by Greek travellers who encountered each other whilst seeking out immortality. It is the longest poem on Jason ever written and is the second longest work on the subject after Robert Graves' "Hercules, My Shipmate" (1945). This volume is highly recommended for fans of Morris's work and would make for a worthy addition to any collection. William Morris (1834-1896) was a famous English poet, textile designer, translator, activist, and novelist. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction.

The Serpent s Part

Canada is a country in which the issue of identity has always been a prominent concern, and one that has frequently been explored in the literature of that nation. The theme of identity often merges into that of language, the forging of names and the elaboration of narratives being perceived as means through which identity is constructed in both the private and the public spheres. This study examines the relation between identity and language as this is evidenced in a number of works of Canadian literature, ranging from Susanna Moodie's Roughing It in the Bush to Timothy Findley's Famous Last Words. Particular attention is dedicated to the telling of stories in these books, both as an existential strategy on the part of particular authors or the characters they create, and as an explicitly thematized concern. It is argued that while the works under discussion dramatize the paradoxes and the perils inherent in the endeavour to construct the self by narrative means, they also insist on the primacy of narrative in imparting a coherent pattern to experience, and on the centrality of the role it plays in humanity's quest for meaning.

The Serpent Symbol in the Ancient Near East

The serpent symbol has been a part of western culture since antiquity. Throughout time, it has been misunderstood and misrepresented. The Serpent Symbol in the Ancient Near East is the first comparative study of the origins of the serpent symbol from its first attestations in Dravidian South India through Mesopotamia and the Ancient Near East including, Egypt, Classical Greece, and as far west as ancient Carthage. The role of the serpent as the agent of life, death, and healing is demonstrated in the various cultures both individually and in combination, in order to clearly understand the symbol.
