    Western Religious Ideology Has Evaporated...The Biblical Documents Remain!

    in Spirituality

    This episode of Pneumatikos will explore the importance of studying the living biblical documents and cutting ties with the failed religious ideology of the west.  Be not decieved God is not mocked.  Those who believed that the Son of God could be served without complete loyalty only fooled themselves.  The grammar and syntax of the New Testament documents do not allow such self-serving arrogance.  God so loved the world is the plain reading of the Scripture.  Love one another is the Divine Imperative.

    Whether you can't get out to lodge or you enjoy this type of discussion your lodge doesn't offer- welcome to Masonic Home Companion.  Here is a brain worm- if we are based on great ideas and if we haven't studied those ideas, how then can we pass on that knowledge to someone knocking at the door?  As time has passed, we have been left with the stories and pictures of achievement.   For generations, we have expected those stories are enough to replace the knowledge that inspired greatness.  As if meeting in a hospital makes us doctors. As if visiting a gallery, dressing like an artist, with routine rituals would make us artists.

    If I buy golf clubs, I'm a golfer but not Arnold Palmer. If I buy a boat, I'm a boater but not Joshua Slokum. Doesn't the transformative process of freemasonry have more qualifiers than that?

    Ideas can be neglected but they do not  die.  Such possibility- if we think of it.

    in Religion


    The emphasis on personal development began to arise in the 1960's with the Human Potential Movement that had its roots in existentialism and humanistic psychology.

    Its purpose was to promote the idea that humans can experience an exceptional quality of life filled with happiness, creativity and fulfillment when they strive to reach their potential.

    Abraham Maslow, a humanistic psychologist, put forth the idea that self-actualization (the fulfillment of self through reaching one's potential) is the highest expression of a human's life.

    In his research Maslow found that self-actualized people were those who are creative and spontaneous, possess a good sense of humor and are able to tolerate uncertainty. They have an appreciation for what life has to offer, a deep concern for others and are able to enjoy close, meaningful, personal relationships.

    Conversations with Hülya N. Yılmaz, Ph.D.

    in Education

    Dr. Hülya N. Yilmaz, a Liberal Arts college professor, holds a Ph.D. from The University of Michigan and has a thirty-seven-year long teaching experience in the fields of German, Comparative Literature and Turkish studies – with prominent concentration on advanced-level composition writing within the perimeters of English and German. After her doctoral promotion, she authored Das Ghasel des islamischen Orients in der deutschen Dichtung (The Ghazal of the Islamic Orient in German literature), a research book in German by Peter Lang International Academic Publishers (link below). This scholarly work – on literary reflections of cross-cultural influences between the West and the Islamic East – constituted a groundbreaking study for the time. Her smaller research projects have appeared in various academic journals. Her invited book chapter with her analysis and critique of the political novel by the 2006 recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature – the controversial Turkish novelist Orhan Pamuk – was published by Palgrave Macmillan, one of the most prestigious publishers in the field, under the title, "The Imagined Exile: Orhan Pamuk in His Novel 'Snow'," in Global Perspectives on Orhan Pamuk. Existentialism and Politics. 

    A published writer with membership in the Academy of American Poets, Dr. Yilmaz authored Trance, a collection of poems in English, German and Turkish (inclusive of her English translations of the foreign language poetry) by Inner Child Press, Ltd. (December 12, 2013) – her debut book of non-scholarly content.

    Will and Thunder Welcome: Aries

    in Rock Music

    Aries began in the fall of 2008 when Rob Bradley decided to form a band to revive some of the sounds that music with strong connections to his influences, a band with razor sharp, arena-ready riffs, powerful hard rock/heavy metal vocals, and a solid rhythm to back it up.

    Now, a number of years later, that vision still remains. Rob Bradley still fronts Aries, with Sean Rhodes taking the command of guitar duties, and Andy Ham and Tim Slack completing the rhythm section.

    Aries can be easily identified musically or on the stage; known for their high-energy live performances, as well as by their signature diverse, epic sound, Aries has shared the stage with such legends as Sebastian Bach, The Protomen, Dio Disciples ft. Tim "The Ripper" Owens (Judas Priest, Iced Earth) on vocals, and Symphony X, and have carved a name for themselves in such events as 98 Rock's Noise in the Basement, The Exposed Music Festival, etc.Aries has also been named as 98 Rock/Shockwave Magazine's Band of the Month(December 2012) followed by being named as their Band of the Year(2013). Aries stays busy with a show schedule that has had them perform in Virginia, Connecticut, Illinois, and many other regions of the East Coast.

    Recently winning Shockwave Magazine's Band of the Year award for 2014, "Rise" (the band's latest album) was funded by a legion of dedicated fans through their Kickstarter. With an initial goal of $3,500, the final amount reached nearly $4,000. 

    Rise features a range of lyrical topics written by Rob Bradley. From themes of paranoia (Trial by Fire), vigilantism (Beware the Gun), rebellion (Rise), to existentialism (Cradle to the Grave), this album marries progressive metal and hard rock cleverly.

    The Chauncey Karls Report

    in Politics

    Hosts Jesse and Cody discuss the increasing polarization in the world as it regards American politics and the border crisis, neither Congress nor the Executive Branch able to advance their agendas without an "all or nothing" approach.  The Israel/Palestine conflict is a perfect example: both sides driven by existential forces and passions to defend and fight for their being and their ontology, the only solution coming in the form of strategic dinosaur placement or amusement parks.  This leads to a discussion of American Culture's individualistic "all or nothing" strain, the wish to be accepted and embraced regardless of faults. Finally, women who are against feminism are examined to learn how identity, image and perception influence the polarization process.
