New Article by José Stevens – The In’s And Out’s Of Bidding For Power

When we go to an equipment auction, a silent auction at a fundraiser, or even to web auction sites such as E-bay, we bid on those products or services that we hope to obtain. If our bid is high enough we get the opportunity to buy what is being sold. If our bid is too low we do not get it but may be able to make a better bid on the next item. The trick to winning is to bid just right, not too little, and not too much. Bidding for power has much in common with this practice.

The 58 Year Total Transformation of Earth: Understanding the New World through the Uranus and Pluto Squares

While this article references some astrological configurations that are playing an important role in our times, this is not an article about astrology. It is an article about the types of changes we might be looking at in the coming year and 57 years hence. The reference to astrology is only a catalyst for entering into a most timely topic, massive and inevitable change in the status quo of this planet on every level, social, political, economic, technological, climactic, international, and spiritual.

Embracing the Unknown

Most of us human beings have had some trepidation of the dark. We come into this world from a timeless place of unconditional love and support and are delivered into a deeply dense environment of uncertainty and the potential for pain and suffering. We no longer have the kind of telepathy that exists in the Spirit world and we no longer have the sense of all knowing that is like clear bright light where there are no secrets, no skepticism, and no doubts. For this reason many children have a fear of the dark and want someone there when they fall asleep or perhaps a light on in the hall just to give them a sense that they can see what is around them….

What and Who is a Virgin: Is it Important?

There are three main themes concerning virginity that have obsessed human beings for millennia. One is whether or not a woman is a virgin when she is ready to marry. The second has to do with the virginity of certain goddesses like Artemis and Mary mother of Jesus, and the other is the whole question of virgin birth of great saints like Osiris, Jesus, and Buddha. In this article we will touch on all three. We will concentrate on virginity as it applies to women even though males can be virgins too. This is because historically the social importance is placed on female virginity and not so much on whether a male is one even though a male may have feelings about whether he is one or not.

Revenge, Sacrifice, and Forgiveness

One of the most deep rooted and ancient tendencies human beings indulge in is the urge to take revenge against those that have caused them pain. This urge has a huge range and includes everything from an automatic reaction to hit back and a conscious premeditated plan of vengeful action. If you look closely at your life you will find incidents when you felt this urge and most likely took action, perhaps when you were a child or even more recently where it snuck up on you. Even older souls will find that the urge to take revenge sneaks up on them such as badmouthing someone who has been hurtful to them.

Freedom, Initiation, and Selflessness

You already know all this. Sometimes you might forget. Here is a reminder. The best part is at the end.

Among nations of the world, more than most, Americans are obsessed with freedom. “I got rights.” “This is a free country.” “Nobody’s going to tell me what I can do or what I can’t do.” “This is my land and I can do with it what I want” etc. Now, freedom is a beautiful and wonderful thing and it is what we all want as human beings. Ultimately it is the optimal state of affairs and most of us would rather live with more freedoms than less. However freedom as it turns out is a very complex issue that the United States Supreme Court is constantly pressed to sort out for the country. The big complication is numbers of people. If you are the only one living for a hundred miles around then obviously you can do pretty much what you want but when you live in a city of millions of people freedom becomes a matter of consensus.

Crucifixion, Resurrection, and Ascension: Three Simple Steps

At first glance this may seem like an intense topic, even religious in nature, but don’t be fooled by appearances. All is not as it seems. There may be something here for everyone of every religion or no religion at all. Like many of my articles this one is designed to raise questions about deeply held beliefs and also to tear down the retaining walls in the mind. A fresh look at something never hurts and in some cases can reveal much greater truths underneath.

Predator or Prey? The Shamanic Understanding of Eating and Digesting Experiences.

For the average person, shamanism has always had some pretty weird notions, even wild and crazy sounding, but upon further investigation these notions usually end up being validated by science. One of the shaman’s more interesting notions is that everything in the universe eats and consumes, and that everything is predator and prey, even aspects of the cosmos that we normally don’t believe are capable of acting this way. Now this perspective may sound somewhat alarming to you or even distasteful but you will see that it is actually a useful metaphor for understanding how to avoid being consumed. Keep in mind however, that shamans are quite serious about their viewpoint that this universe is like a jungle where everything is eating everything else.
