    The New Essenes: Genealogy & Generativity Part I

    in Spirituality

    On your mark, set? Go! We have this great vehicle – the Path of XPR, equipped with SIX Wheels of Power. We checked the pressure of the TWIN Mission last episode, in its connection to Sentience. Now we are checking the Wheel of the TWIN QKode. That’s a major endeavor, as it secures two complimentary possibilities: to no longer be victim of our genealogy, and thus to be able to generate harmony. Join us for more...


    The New Essenes is a gathering of ordinary people practicing deep introspection as a way to solve everyday problems. Our inquiry is based on the idea that language is alive and that the Word is where our Power lives: since speech is an act, communication is not what is said and done, but the result of what is said and done. By joining in and coming back, we increasingly benefit from the distilled essence of an ultimate method of inquiry, based on Sacred Geometry and known as the Path of XPR.


    Our meetings last one-hour & are structured as follows:


    1.       The first 5 minutes: Welcoming, Checking In. taking a moment of silence.


    2.       The next 10 minutes:  Ritual readings.


    3.       The last 45 minutes: Introduction of a topic. Group Sharing & Inquiry, Summary / Ritual Closing.

    The Importance of History in Genealogy Research

    in Entertainment

    Tonights show takes on an important Topic; of the historical backdrop in Genealogy.  Genealogy is a word used to describe a line of descent traced continuously from an ancestor to you. There are direct ancestors and others on the branch who are blood relatives. For me Genealogy is not only locating ancestors but profiling them through the historical context in which they lived. This is important especially with Native and African Ancestors whose history is mirred with movements they had no control over.

    Short & Junk: My Research Process

    in Entertainment

    Arlinya asks: How do you focus your research for stories: Do you layout what you need for plot and hit each high point or do you start with one thing, research everything you can upfront and re-enter research stage later if needed?

    Writing Hitsuzen asks: When you are researching or world-building for a story, how do you determine when you have enough to start writing? I know that there is always going to be something that needs to be looked up or researched in the middle, but how do you know when you’ve got the basics that you need to start? Do you use a list? Is it part of your plotting process or separate? How much if it is character based? And how do you keep from going overboard and world-building into infinity? 



    Please note: Christian Kane Doesn't Work at my Library and it's sad.
