    The Age of Synthesis of Opposites - The Counter-Revolution #2

    in Spirituality

    We need a whole new scientifically based religious system with designs and parables for the Kali Yuga post-modern age, the old Solar religions of love thy neighbor are becoming meaningless, we need the power of Lucifer & Lilith, of Kybele and Vajrayogini, and other warriors of dark light. We all need to become Kalki, and slay the daemons of the unconscious which lurk at every turn, for now metaphorically, perhaps one day literally, until only the Dharma and its adherants remain.

    This is the path of synthesis. the hegalian dialected reads “synthesis + antithesis = synthesis”. So what does this mean practically? It means that upon reaching the transcendental spheres of awareness, you are the thesis. The antithesis is those around you lost in avidya, ignorance. In order to synthesis these two you must master both the above, and below, and harmonize it in yourself and by your own will. This is the counter-revolution against the new age that must be.

    Caitlin La Boyteaux speaks on Creativity as Food for the Soul

    in Dreams

    The Voice of Change, hosted by Sharon Ann Wikoff, welcomes Caitlin La Boyteaux back to program. Her topic is Creativity as Food for the Soul. Caitlin says, "Sometimes we can't afford a therapist or we can't find an appropriate spiritual teacher. This doesn't mean that we have to wander in the desert! We can create. We can allow ourselves the celebration of our own voice, no matter how small, no matter how seemingly insignificant. The medium can be anything. And there can be more than one. It is a way to channel a divine feeling even if there's no belief in the Divine! Letting the Soul, which most agree exist, have a voice, have some attention! It's an opportunity to acknowledge the soul and express gratitude for your Soul.
    I do this by writing and illustrating a series of books called Donkeyoti as well as singing the Bhajans.
