Rethinking Circumcision with Maurene White

Today on The Truther Girls, my guest will be Maurene White, a nurse who has been campaigning against circumcision for four decades. Maurene is the founder of farreach.org, and organization that helps to inform people about the risks of circumcision and the benefits of having a foreskin. She also helps adult men learn how to restore their foreskins and has developed an iPhone application called i4skinhealth for this purpose, which you can see and buy here at the Apple Store. 100% of proceeds from sales of the app go to research and education to assuage circumcision harms.

People tend to have strong feelings about circumcision. Some people defend it vehemently on the basis of their religious beliefs, or the beliefs that it provides health or hygiene benefits, while others oppose it just as strongly and say it is no different from female genital cutting. To me, this is a subject on a par with vaccination when it comes to the need for the public’s access to factual information on the risks versus the benefits. Just this week, two babies died as a result of circumcision at the Jewish General Hospital in Montreal, one from hemorrhage and the other from shock. Given that this procedure can sometimes result in such tragic consequences, I hope that my interview with Maurene today will help people make more informed decisions about circumcision, as it concerns their own bodies and those of their children. There is nothing worse than making an uninformed decision and later regretting it, saying “If only I had known!’. Regardless of whether you decide to circumcise or not, I want you to make the best, most informed decision and feel confident about it.

Today, we will be addressing questions such as:
– What are the true risks of medical complications from circumcision?
– Does circumcision traumatize the baby?
– Does it increase his sensitivity to pain in the long term?
– Does circumcision confer hygienic advantages?
– Has circumcision actually been shown to protect against HIV, certain cancers or other diseases?
– Is circumcision sometimes medically necessary, as in the case of phymosis?
– What are the benefits of not being circumcised?
– How can an adult man restore his foreskin?
– How can Jewish parents who do not want to circumcise reconcile this with their religious beliefs?
– How can Jewish parents cope with family pressure to circumcise?

Swami Shivanandra Giri on The Truther Girls

I have had several Christian pastors on my radio show and often refer to the Bible myself, so today for a change I will be talking to Swami Shivanandra Giri about Hinduism. We tend to have the greatest prejudices against the things of which we know the least, so in a spirit of openness to information and a desire to understand the beliefs of those who practice different religions, I am very pleased to welcome Swami to my show today.

Swami Shivanandra Giri is with the Meditative Living show on Blogtalkradio and his website is http://meditativeliving.info. His mission is to share the practices and understandings of the Western Church of Sanatana Dharma, (The Eternal Way). According to Swami, “It is your birthright and purpose in physical existence to come to the direct and conscious experience of our Creator by whatever name or image that is best suited for you. I share with you the Enlightened teachings of my esteemed lineage through teachings of my Guru/Teacher.”

You listen to my live interview with Swami at 3:00 pm EST today on July 28, 2011 at http://americanfreedomradio.com or download the archived show from http://americanfreedomradio.com/TrutherGirls_11 and join in the live chat at http://truthergirls.chatango.com

The Luciferian Order

This was sent to me by youtube user 00roninsamurai00. I am sharing it with you for your information.

The Following is a word-for-word copy of the “Introductory Summary to the Luciferian Order” of Ordo Luciferi. Depending on your access capabilities, you may be able to acquire an official copy. I was unable to find a copy online to which I could send you a link, and it is short, so I’m sending it like this. This document provides valuable insight into the belief system of the Luciferian Illuminati, and the term Illuminati itself (plural for Illuminatus).

Introductory Summary to the Luciferian Order

The Luciferian Order is based on an honor system of the Recognition of Living Intelligence within its members. Wherein the members are solely responsible for the future of an ever evolving, undogmatic Order of Luciferic Light.

The Order recognizes six degrees of Self-Manifestation in the operations of Self-Attainment, the manifestation of the Higher Intelligence/Self. The Incipus (Initiate), the Adeptus (the Skilled), the Magus (Master), Primus (One Source), Animus (Living Force) and the Illuminatus (Illuminated Being). Each member of the Ordo Luciferi begins at the Incipus Degree as an Initiate into the Luciferian Order. Each member evolves from this degree to and through the sequential degrees based on Manifestation of the Self/Higher Intelligence. As one works, and connects to the Source of ones Self, this becomes evident as this Light from within one begins to shine brighter in ones life and work.

This evolving Awareness within each member is thereby recognized by other members of the Order and members thereby recognized to higher degrees of the Luciferian Order. The Luciferian Order is a network of Living Intelligence/Light and as each member comes into the possession of this Light doth the Light of Living Intelligence manifest itself within and without. When and if one acquires the degree of Magus (Master), they come into the possession of officially recognizing members up to the degree of Magus. The Primus, Animus and Illuminatus may recognize members up to their respective degrees in a sequential order.

The communications are designed to provide dialogue and contact with other members of the Order. Unofficial members, Incipus and Adeptus have access to the Luciferian Order e-group. Official members of any degree may participate in any Lodge as long they are accepted by the Sentinel. Only a Magus IIIƤ+ may be the sentinel of a Lodge. Once a member reaches the degree of Magus, they are entitled to create an officially recognized Lodge. A Lodge is a focus group and geographically located place for meetings between its members and members of the Order.

The Magus, Primus, Animus and Illuminatus also have access to the Inner Order group, the Ordo Luciferi. Thus as a Magus does one have access to the Outer Order and the Inner Order of the Luciferian Order. Beyond this is an elect group called the Ordo Illuminatus which only consist of members who have reached the Illuminatus degree. These three groups create the Triad of the Luciferian Order and its communications of Living Intelligence.

Therefore, member contact within the Ordo Luciferi is within the Outer Order, the Inner Order, the Lodges and the Illuminatus Order. Each representing various aspects of Knowledge and Light; and responsibility to the developing evolution of the Luciferian Order as an Organization.

Being that you have come into the possession of this document, you have taken the first step to a unique Luciferian Path of Self Evolution. As an Incipus you stand at the starting point of commencing upon the diverse reality of Higher Intelligence within your own being. You may already be a Magus or greater, some will progress slowly and other more rapidly. However, recognition is earned and not given freely. In order to be recognized your living force must reveal the presence of Higher Knowledge, it must shine through you and your works. Each degree is a degree of Self Attainment, and therefore, the attainment of any degree of Self Mastery will be evident in its members.

Members are encouraged not to ask for recognition. The Luciferian Order is diplomatic in its operations, and it is the beauty of the Order that members of like mind build beneficial relations with other members. Again, the Order serves as a network for Luciferians. Through such beneficial relations does the Light of Knowledge grow to new heights of awareness and influence in the world. So again, do not ask to be recognized, you will be by your conduct and deeds.

By joining the Outer Order you have many options. You may remain an honorary member of the Outer Order, or you may apply for membership and work to ascend through the degrees. By so doing, you gain access to more knowledge within the Order such as, Lodges, Inner Order and Illuminatus Order. What you do is up to you, you will get back what you put into it. You may be assured that the farther you travel, you will come into contact with others who travel and explore the greatest journeys of Living Intelligence.

Hermetic Introduction Pt I: The Key of Gnosis

Hermetic Introduction Pt I: The Key of Gnosis
by John Carnagey

My work serves to be a source of ancient esoteric wisdom and modern quantum sciences. Modern quantum sciences are beginning to validate and prove the truths and understandings of reality that we have been told of before by the Egyptian Mystery Schools and many ancient masters through out known history. That is…

1. That we are all an eternal “light/energy/consciousness/soul”. We are not bodies that have souls, rather we are souls experiencing a ‘body’.

2. That the very source of that soul is in fact The ALL or “God”. “While it is true that The ALL is ALL, it is equally as true that The ALL is within ALL”. “The source, limit, and constitution of all things is God. ” Thus making all life and creation sacred. (“Do unto others as you would have done unto you”)

3. Third, that those souls all being individuated pieces of The ALL, live within its infinitely expanding imagination. The universe is entirely mental in reality, nature, and construct, existing only in the mental perceptions and illusions of the senses presented to that soul. The imagination of god is in fact the dwelling ground/plane of existence that the soul ‘resides’ in, experiencing a ‘separate’ existence from inherent ‘oneness’. God is all, and all is in gods imagination. God is the force (energy) behind all ‘physical’ matter, this force is, primary, eternal, and of real substantiality. Matter is secondary, passing, and based in illusion.

“We live in illusion and the appearance of things. There is a reality, we are that reality, when you understand this you see that you are nothing, and in being nothing you are everything.”

-The Buddha-

“God sleeps in the rocks, stirs in the plants, dreams in the animals, and finaly awakens in man.”

-Famous Vedic Quote-

“Matter is fluid and flows like a stream, constantly changing from one thing to another… Know ye that which is formed is truly formless, having form only to thine eyes.”

-The Emerald Tablets-

“No One of Existing Things doth Perish, but Men in Error Speak of Their Changes as Destructions and as Deaths… The “restoration” of bodies on the earth is thus their composition, whereas their dissolution restores them to those bodies which can never be dissolved, that is to say, which know no death. Privation, thus, of sense is brought about, not loss of bodies. ”

-The Corpus Hermeticum-

Time is the force that allows the oneness of The ALL, to mentally individualize and experience the illusion of separation…

“Know ye, O Thoth, in the beginning there was VOID and nothingness, a timeless, spaceless, nothingness. And into the nothingness came a thought, purposeful, all-prevading, and It filled the VOID… In the beginning, there was eternal thought, and for thought to be eternal, time must exist. So into the all-prevading thought grew the LAW of TIME…

Time changes not, but all things change in time. For time is the force that holds events separate, each in its own proper place. Time is not in motion, but ye move through time as your consciousness moves from one event to another.

Aye, by time yet exist, all in all, an eternal ONE existence. Know ye that even though in the time ye are separate, yet still are ONE, in all times existent…

Within thee is all time and space.”

-The Emerald Tablets-

Thus life in an eternal mental universe consists only of a series of sequential moments. The flow of which man calls ‘time’. In each moment of ‘time’ we have a choice, to live fully engaged in that moment untethered to the past or future, finding true lasting happiness by attuning to the light of self (God) within, or to dwell in the darkness and despair of the ego (devil). The wise find true happiness and bliss from the eternal heaven within, the fool falls to the folly and sorrows of the pursuit of fleeting happiness amongst an ever fading and passing illusion.

“The Kingdom of heaven is within you.”

-Jesus-

“The enlightened man, recognizing that the world is but an illusion, does not act as if it is real, so he escapes the suffering.”

-The Buddha-

“When you realize how perfect everything is you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky”

-The Buddha-
