Religion What do you Believe?

Are you aware? Anybody home? Knock knock Do you get it?
If we got to this point, guess not. But I’ll try anyway.
In your opinion, what’s going on? Why we here? Basic question.
With me so far?
Do you have any factual data to support your belief? Evidence
that say a Philadelphia lawyer could not dispute. Are you
convinced it is Jesus. Or positive Allah watches over you. Do
you stand in reverence of Yahweh? Who’s got your back?
What do you believe? Think this is all a process. A mirage? The
Cosmic Wheel.
Are you sure God sits in judgment? Weighs your conduct against a holy bar-code? Cares about your motives and decisions? Do you envision the rapture? Looking forward to it? Believe you will rise into oblivion? A seat reserved at a table with Jesus acting as master of ceremonies?
Why is God stern, why the worship? Is he insecure? The creator of the universe or many universes, what is its home universe where he or she came from. What kind of infancy, home life are we talking about?
Reincarnation, a fun word. Gives the impression of a second chance or many turns at the prize. The wheel, somehow we must get off the wheel of circumstance. What phase are you in? Maybe you have not risen out of the muck enough to see your possibilities.
Just saying.

The Fascinating Ouija Board Part 3

In 1960, Parker Brothers purchased the rights to the magic board from the Fuld Company. The next year Parker Bros. sold over two million units, outselling the popular Monopoly Game. With Race Riots, the Vietnam War and the Summer of Love, the Ouija Board gained notoriety.

Over the years, ever since the board was on the market various stories and claims surfaced. In the 1920’s detectives turned to the Ouija to solve the murder of a well-known gambler in New York city. In Chicago, the following year a woman claimed that spirits advised her to place her dead mom in the living room, before burying her in the back yard. In 1930 two Buffalo women murdered another woman, as a result of suggestions of messages received through the board. In 1958, a Connecticut court chose to not honor a will which instructed the sum of $152,000 to go to John Gale Forbes, who contacted her through the Ouija Board from the other side.
Some eclectic authors claimed they received poetry and prose which they published. One swore her book titled ‘Jap Herron’ came from the famous writer Samuel Clemens.

After the tumultuous sixties ended the Ouija fascination waned. That is until a chilling movie titled ‘The Exorcist’ hit theaters in 1973. That single-handedly altered the way people perceived the board. It transformed the Ouija Board from a non-threatening way to pass the time, to a doorway into the bowels of hell. In the film an eleven-year old girl named Reagan, became possessed by a demonic entity, after playing around with the board by herself.

Almost immediately the Catholic Church and many other Christian institutions labeled the Ouija Board a preferred tool of Satan.

The Fascinating Ouija Board Part 2

The origin of the Ouija Board can be traced to America’s obsession with Spiritualism in the mid-nineteenth century. This is directly linked to Mysticism that blossomed in the Monarchy’s across Europe. Kings, Queens and the nobles buzzing around their courts, went gaga for mediums and Spiritualists. These individuals held the palaces in awe with predictions of the future. They organized seances, where the Prince’s Dukes and Baronesses communicated with dead monarchs.

Over here in America the Fox Sisters, Kate and Margaret evoked an immediate response by holding a demonstration of Spiritual Rapping at the Corinthian Hall in Rochester New York. This occasion would mark the beginning of mediums performing before a paying audience. After that event, news spread around the globe It was possible now, for believers to seek proof of the after-life. Or paranormal proof,(if you will). Christians could go to a Séance on a Friday and attend church on Sunday with no misgivings. Spiritualism, did not clash with Christian dogma.

A sponsor would hold seances at their homes or rent a hall for table turning parties. The participants placed their hands on top of an 18×18 inch table, which sat on a regular size table. In response to a series of questions, the small table would shake and rock, while everyone swore they were not responsible for the movement.
These gatherings gained popularity in the latter part of the 19th century. Men lived into their mid-fifties. Women routinely died from childbirth and wars decimated the male population. Sons never returned from the battlefield and newborn babies perished from disease. So, trying to make contact with spirits during that era was not deemed wrong or dangerous.

When the Kennard Novelty company marketed their mysterious board, they were cashing in on an easier way to contact the other-side. Up until then communication between the two realms involved a tedious process of calling out each letter of the alphabet and interpreting the knocks that followed. This boring regiment took hours to decipher a legible response.

The Kennard Novelty Company quickly became an American success story. The stockholders reaped millions from the new found niche. By 1892 the company went from one factory in Baltimore to two. Another two in New York a couple in Chicago and one in London.

A few years later, an employee and ground floor investor named William Fuld took over the daily running of the company. He was instrumental in enhancing the profit margin by gaining world-wide recognition of the brand. A year later he fell to his death from the roof of a new factory. The roof of a building the Ouija Board instructed him to build.

A hundred and twenty years later the board is still selling well. Even in the age of electronic stimuli, people turn to alternative methods for explanations during troubling times End Part 2

The Fascinating Ouija Board Part One

Let us take a fabled glimpse into the spiritual realm. We’ll travel through time and space. It’s February in the year 1891. The first advertisements regarding a talking board appears in a Pittsburgh newspaper. The tag-line read. A magical toy that could answer questions about past, present and future occurrences. Priced at a mere $1.50 this board game promised hours of family enjoyment and discovery. A pathway between the known and the unknown. Giving common folk access to what lies beyond this material realm.
The product that sold in stores back in 1891, has not changed much in the years between. Originally the board was wooden, the planchette metal. These days the board is cardboard, the planchette is plastic. The same two rows of the alphabet in a semi-circle above the numbers 0-9. Yes and No in the top corners, and Good Bye at the bottom.
As two or more participants sat around the mysterious board, placing their fingertips lightly on the planchette and posing random questions. The triangular device with a window, or portal, seemed to move of its own accord. Spelling out or simply answering the question posed as negative or affirmative.
Just the alleged facts surrounding the patenting and the naming of the Ouija Board is a story in itself. The claims by the inventors were corroborated by the Baltimore Patent Office. So how did the patent clerk determine how this seemingly placid instrument functioned? The plan hatched by a gregarious patent agent amounted to simply withholding his name from Kennard and his associates. Once they arrived he suggested they ask the magic board what his full name was. In short order the name was spelled out. Elijah Bond a partner in the Kennard Novelty Company and his sister in law Helen Peters attended the demonstration. Helen, described by Mr. Bond as ‘a strong medium’ also extracted the name from the board when she asked the board what name they should use, it spelled out OUIJA.

As historians discovered, one of the early investors of the Kennard Novelty Company, also happened to be a Patent Attorney. Yes, good old Elijah Bond practiced law. Some speculated that was how he knew the patent clerk’s identity. Paranormal evidence you might say. End of Part One

Solar Flares

A star is like a parent
It provides guidance and warmth
It holds its’ child captive and relatively safe, but every so often the enthusiasm presses the edges of containment. Its passion exceeds the boundaries.
On Earth we call these jovial eruptions solar flares They are not a product we at present control. Therefore, they pose an unknowable risk like: placing a pile of chips on the roulette felt atop 00 and knowing even unlucky gamblers hit now and then.

So we are gambling, betting against a meteor or asteroid clobbering our fair planet. A star like Alpha Centauri can always supernova what effect would that have on mankind?

Like everything else in this existence the very attributes of our source of life, warmth, light; also can exude death, cold and darkness. The opportunities afforded a species are fleeting and occasional.
Ying and Yang dwell in the heart of a Christian Diplomat, in the mind of a cleric of Islam, on the skin of a rabbi’s face, as well as the expanse of a distant galaxy. These external balance’s, follow no agenda that we can conceive without accepting the on going process without forethought.

The universe is a dangerous neighborhood to hang. Our solar system, no exception. Besides dodging, asteroids, meteors and other cosmic debris. Our beautiful planet must worry about those pesky solar flares. Gaia knows, one band of light photons, mixed with hydrogen can produce a wave that can push the whole process out of sync.

A rogue flare can easily fry the electro-magnetic grid and usher in the dark ages; with a single dose of unheralded radiation. Who knows what area of the planet gets a cosmic tan. It depends on which side shows it’s face when the particles hit. Like a cosmic lottery. Fact is, every facet of existence shares the same chances of success or failure. Eastern or Western Hemisphere. We have a fifty/fifty chance. Good Luck
