Mary Magdalene – Alchemist and High-Priestess of Hathor

Mary Magdalene

This article refers to the woman thought to be a disciple of Jesus who may also be the one refered to as The Holy Grail or the one who carries the DNA of the Sang Raal.

MARY-MAGDALENE-Alchemist

MARY MAGDALENE- The Alchemist

Mary Magdalene or Mary of Magdala (original Greek Μαρία ἡ Μαγδαληνή)[3] is described, in the New Testament, as one of the most important women in the movement of Jesus throughout his ministry.[4] Also referred to as the Migdal Eder (Tower of the Flock) by Margaret Starbird

The late 20th and early 21st century has enjoyed the restoration of the New Testament icon and most devoted of apostles, Mary Magdalene as the most prominent patron of women’s preaching and ministry. Mary’s new popularity has grown, in part, from the realization that Mary Magdalene undoubtedly suffered from what many now believe to be a great injustice based on historical defamation of character, perpetrated by emotionally unstable church authorities.

Traditionally, Mary Magdalene was falsely identified as a repentant prostitute, and has been incorrectly depicted in classical art as a so-called sinner, often found weeping and wiping the feet of Jesus with her lovely long hair. Read more of this post

“Magnificent at so many levels!” 5 star pioneer ratings!

Focusing on events that lead up to the advent of the Jesus Movement in the Levant,  Hearth’s upcoming historical romance promises to be both highly entertaining and informative. The points of view, although drawn from timelines commonly accepted in orthodox religious circles, present a new and refreshing set of possibilities and hope for a generation born into a world filled with pollution, concerns of human injustice, endangered species and a world on the brink of complete environmental meltdown.

Heart makes the point that History is contrived at best. And Mary Magdalene’s history was not immune to corruption, as it has also been rewritten, time and again, to suit the whims and private agendas of countless despot rulers, both during her lifetime as well as centuries after her tenure in the Levant. Even today authors offer unruly and absurd assumptions concerning her history and person.

Judas Iscariot a Vegetarian? “Eating is a Political Act!”

Was Judas Iscariot a Student of Mary Magdalene? Were they all Vegans?

Was Judas Iscariot a Student of Mary Magdalene? Were they all Vegans?

In honor of  Mary Magdalene and her constituency’s attempt to spread the message of ahimsa, William Hearth has completed a 40 Day vegan juice fast. In preparation for attempting a 120~366 day micro-nutrient and ocean-water fast, Hearth attempts to prove that humans can live lightly on this planet, while remaining healthy and virulent even when they have past the age of 50. William Hearth is on day 42 [Oct 15, 2010] of a VEGAN juice fast (eating only plant-based liquids).

“My Goal you ask? My goal is to help people to understand that environmental activism began over 2,000 years ago, and not during our 20th century generation, as many are inclined to believe,” say William Hearth, author of ORMUS ~ The Secret Alchemy of Mary Magdalene Revealed, “The Jesus Movement, including Mary Magdalene and her constituents’ message, bespoke a world in which the Way of Peace, or ahimsa, would be the norm, rather than the exception. Deforestation began thousands of year ago, with the building of countless fortresses, war-ships, and other tools of war, most of which were used to destroy neighboring cultures and civilizations.”

Hearth goes on to say that, “People consume much more than they actually need and continue to waste resources needlessly on a daily basis, minute by minute.”

“Without a fundamental change in the way we live our lives on a day to day basis, there is little chance of the human race surviving into the 22nd Century, let alone into the year 2050.”

“It has been correctly observed that ‘shopping is a political act” and I would now like to point out that ‘eating is a political act’ in a very real and tangible sense…”

Significant facts were literally written-out of history!

 

Sang Raal Holy Grail Maryam Mary Magdalene

Looks like a lot of historical, academic and speculative research went into the preparation for the book. The ORMUS aspect was intriguing. I was fascinated at the prospect of Mary Magdalene having been an alchemist and high-priestess of the Temple of Hathor.”

“When we, as open-minded, independent thinkers, finally muster the courage to question authority, and act upon that decision, the need to perform alternative research will indubitably arise…”                        ~William Hearth

“We will find ourselves amazed at how certain aspects of history are simply ignored by all mainstream encyclopedias, dictionaries and textbooks; each country, nation-state and its corporatist regime, force-feeding the global population various versions of history as they see fit~ i.e. the version that supports that ruling party’s current private agenda; whereas all the names, places, words and ideas of major significance are being literally written in & out of history on a daily basis.”              ~William Hearth

“We will discover that all ideologies and thought processes other than the homogenized package of “pasteurized” thought, touted by mainstream religion and orthodox academia, has been carefully disposed of.”            ~William Hearth

Vitamin B12 for Vegans Confirmed

Viable Vitamin B12 for Vegans available for centuries as common component of Japanese daily diet ~ Shiitake Mushroom

Consider this: Do mushrooms require B12? Why would mushrooms adsorb and absorb the B12? Is this an accident of Nature;  or ~ is DNA much more intelligent than we realize?


In AUSTRALIA ~ University of Western Sydney completed ground-breaking research on the B12 content of button mushrooms.

In JAPAN ~ According to Dr. Kanichi Mori, Shiitake mushrooms have more vitamin B12 than milk and fish.

Brief:Certain types of Mushrooms are unique in that they contain Vitamin B12, something that vegetables can’t produce at all.  Since B12 is mainly of animal origin, deficiency is commonly associated with vegetarian diets.  Mushrooms were found to contain 0.32-0.65 mg per gram of B12, allowing just 3 g of fresh mushrooms to provide the RDA of this vitamin.  Vegetarians may find this a useful way of getting this important nutrient. ~ more at http://www.polymathium.com ~ This is possibly due to a subtle, potential symbiotic relationship that occurs between the three parties involved… humans, mushrooms, and B12 producing bacterium.

Fasting on Fruit Juice ~ Day 31

I’ve been a vegan-vegetarian for over 40 years and this year I’m performing a juice fast. I’ve been consuming approx. 90% fruit juice and 10% vegetable juice for over 4 weeks now. But I’ve only just begun! I’m aiming for 90~120 days at least.

 

 

~ Polymathius ~ A Compassionate Man of Ahimsa

~ Polymathius ~ A Compassionate Man of Ahimsa

 

Today, (Day 31:) I enter into the 2nd month of fasting on liquids. I am fasting as an act of gratitude; to acknowledge the bounty and blessings that Gaia, our Mother Earth bestows upon us, moment to moment; and to remind others that we all share a common responsibility to give back to our Mother The Earth and our Natural Environment.

 

Sustainability requires more than political activism. Sustainability begins at home and at the office, in our factories and our places of worship.

Day 31: I feel alert and energized. I sleep well and wake up early, refreshed and looking forward to a new day. I’ve been consuming 90% fruit juice and 10% vegetable juice for over 4 weeks now.

Polymathium ~ What is it?

The term Polymathium™ is a word coined* as a compliment to the term polymath.

Wherein polymath is the critical component:
Polymathium is a combination of the words Polymath, Colloquium and Auditorium.

 

~ Polymathius ~ A Compassionate Man of Ahimsa

Polymathium~ a Colloquium for the Polymath in all of us.

The Polymathium…is a place where classically minded people can congregate in cyberspace to discuss the “little things” (as opposed to those”big questions”) that make life worth living… returning to the roots of Philosophy, as it were.A polymath (Greek πολυμαθής, polymathēs, “having learned much”) is a person whose expertise spans a significant number of different subject areas. In less formal terms, a polymath (or polymathic person) may simply be someone who is very knowledgeable. Most ancient scientists were polymaths by today’s standards.

Vegan B12 BioAvailable in Shiitake Mushrooms

More on B12 content in Tempeh, Seaweeds, Organic Produce, and Other Plant Foods, below…

Note* This article is an edit of a very important and comprehensive article found at http://www.veganhealth.org/b12/
http://www.veganhealth.org/b12/plant#mush
shiitake-on-logs

shiitake-on-logs

Summary: No food in Europe or the U.S. other than Japanese Nori, has been tested* for lowering MMA levels (*at the time of publication of this original article). 

Thus, the discussion about whether Western vegans can get B12 from plant foods can, and probably should, end here (until proper research is conducted). Because so many plant foods have failed other tests that do not measure up to the MMA lowering test, and because there are so many false rumors being passed around, the studies of B12 in plant foods are examined in detail below.

The only plant foods which have been tested for B12 activity using the gold standard of lowering MMA levels in humans are dried and raw nori from Japan. Dried nori made MMA status worse, indicating that it can reduce B12 status and can possibly harm people who are B12-deficient. Raw nori kept MMA levels about the same, indicating that it didn’t harm B12 status, but it did not help either.

Of all the foods studied below, only tempeh in Indonesia or Thailand, dulse, Chlorella, raw nori, Aphanizomenon flos-aquae, and coccolithophorid algae warrant much further attention for providing B12. Unless these foods are shown consistently to correct B12 deficiency, vegans should not rely on them as a B12 source.

Introduction

It would be great to find a reliable plant source of B12 for vegans. One might get the opposite impression given my level of critique of some of these studies. My skepticism is only due to the potential harm from relying on a food that contains inactive B12 analogues which can make a B12 deficiency even worse.

Henry Alfred Goolsbee Files Criminal Charges Against New Zealand Police Detective

A Father of three young children resolves to file criminal charges against New Zealand Police Detective and other New Zealand Ministers and Government Ministries Visiting Japanese/American family is made destitute by corrupt New Zealand Police Detective and corrupt Government Agents (corrupt New Zealand Judges complicit in compounding the damages).

A 59 year old author and father of three, Henry Alfred Goolsbee, who was wrongfully imprisoned for over two years, has decided to file criminal claims against a New Zealand Police Detective and several related Ministerial Departments citing charges (including but not limited to) “Perjury,” “Obstruction of Justice,” “Perverting the Course of Justice,” “Preventing the Course of Justice,” “Unlawful Discrimination” and “Obtaining Pecuniary Advantage and Causing Loss by Deceit,” within the New Zealand Government. There are currently several cases filed by Goolsbee which are currently active in the High Courts of New Zealand the name and shame many of the culprits with the New Zealand government.

The US born father has decided to file criminal charges against the police on behalf of his three young children who, at the time of the offending by the Police and Ministries, were ages 10, 12 and14 and he has also filed for damages on behalf of their mother, a Japanese national, all of whom are innocent victims of an ongoing legal fiasco that resulted in Mr Goolsbee being falsely accused, illegally arrested, was denied his right to justice and was wrongfully convicted and imprisoned for two years and three months.

The family was made destitute and made homeless in New Zealand, because the father was unable to make payment to various utilities providers and rental agents as a direct result of the misconduct and criminal behaviour of the police and various Government agencies. Eviction notices were served and their mobile and landline telephones were cut off. When Goolsbee was wrongfully imprisoned he lost over $800,000 worth of remedial soil amendments that were ready to packed and sold into the agricultural arena.

“It’s a miracle that we have survived this long…” says Goolsbee.

“…, if the detective had her way, I would have spent the past one year and eight months in prison whilst awaiting trial for charges that have no merit or basis in reality. I am innocent of the charges and have the evidence to prove it… Fortunately, the Judge disagreed with the Detective’s recommendation to deny bail.”

In fact, in the earlier round of administrative hearings, “…the Judge appears to have decided that the allegations are absurd, and for good reason.”

The elderly gentleman and his family have been unable to access medical services that would ordinarily have been available to them, had they been able to return to Japan, where the father had been a permanent resident for almost twenty years. The mother and children are all very traumatized and are suffering as well, but are not entitled to medical care either, according to the decisions made by the Ministry of Immigration, the Ministry of Social Development and Ministry of Education who refused to allow the children to attend school whilst awaiting trial as potential wiynesses.

“They’re trying to force me to become insolvent and mentally exhausted, so that we can’t afford to tell the world what they’re doing: and so that we can’t afford to hire legal counsel capable of bringing civil and criminal proceedings against the police and the government ministries who are complicit in this abusive process.,” said Goolsbee.

“We need urgently help from organizations like Amnesty International, Change.org and Indiegogo and other such social and political action networks before it’s too late. Who knows how many other innocent people may have been arrested and incarcerated by this same, rogue, police agent and her colleagues at Crown Law? If they’ll do it our family, they’ll do it to others and this simply isn’t acceptable in these days and times. After all, New Zealand is supposed to be a civilized and democratic society.”

“How the New Zealand Government can treat a perfectly innocent father, his wife and young children in this manner, is beyond our comprehension.”

“We thought we were visiting a civilized country; but we don’t know what to think now. We have lost hundreds of thousands of dollars as a direct result of this absurd situation and we now find ourselves on the brink of being homeless in a foreign country. They have caused us to become destitute.”

The police seized all of the family’s digital communication equipment, computers and data-storage devices, as well as all of the father’s ID and bankcards, jewellery and other valuables, just one week prior to the expiration of their visas; and thus the police prevented the father from applying for their visa extensions in a timely manner, despite the fact that he had made extensive and adequate preparations to do so. The mother had to sell the few pieces of jewelry that had handed down to her from her mother. “It’s not very valuable, but they were priceless to me as tokens of remembrance of my mother. They had great sentimental value as I wanted to pass them on to my daughters and grandchildren,” she said.

The mother went on to say that, “We have been uncommonly patient with the due process of law and the Detective in charge. We assumed that the misunderstanding would be cleared up in a matter of days, but the detective in charge has been behaving in a most unprofessional and belligerent manner. We have also been exceedingly patient with the Ministries who are complicit in this negligence, thus causing my family to become destitute.”

Mr. Goolsbee continued, “My wife and children have been gravely traumatized by the events of the past several years, including but not limited to our being forced to live under house-arrest without the right to work and provide for our family. I finally succeeded in convincing the Ministry of Immigration to give me a work permit after five months, but because my visa says that the visa is issued “pending the outcome of judicial proceedings against” me, it is near impossible to find work based on my skill sets. They wouldn’t allow my wife to work at all. Also my passport wasn’t returned to me for over three and a half years.”

“I was held incommunicado in a jail cell for almost a week, was not allowed to call a lawyer, nor to contact the US Embassy, I was not allowed to talk to my wife and children, and I was not allowed to communicate with a religious minster representing the church of my choice.”

“We have all the evidence required to disprove the assumptions made by the police detective; however the detective repeatedly refused to meet with my attorneys for the period leading up to the trial and discuss the matter in a civil and amicable manner. I’d made numerous attempts to talk to her, and two separate attorneys have invited her to review the evidence, all of which proves without doubt my innocence.”

“In fact, if the detective had her way, I would have spent the past 10 months in prison awaiting trial, despite the fact that I am innocent of the charges and have been able to prove my innocence since the very onset of the false accusations and summary arrest, which was based on nothing more than hearsay, utterly erroneous assumptions and false pretexts.”

“The hard-evidence which proves my innocence has been available since day-one of the false arrest.”

“The detective seized my children’s computer, which they use for their schooling and distance learning programs. They seized other computers and equipment which I use to manage my extensive international business interests which are focused on sustainable agriculture and sustainable environments and not-for-profit organizations.”

“To date, we have sustained loss and damages that exceed several hundred thousand dollars, and depending on the extent of the domino effect and the accounting methods employed, it is arguable that damages may exceed several million dollars to date. More importantly, the trauma and emotional damage has been compounded by being denied access to proper medical care for three years and counting.”

“The detective seized all of my identification, including passport, driver’s license, and bank cards, etc. which forced the suspension of all business and creative process. The detective refused to allow the Japanese Embassy to renew my Permanent Residence status and my hard-won status as a Permanent Resident of Japan was lost. This was especially disconcerting as it took many years to establish the status of permanent resident of Japan.”

“The computer equipment and hard drives were withheld for many months, during which time, all of my business interests fell into disarray and ruin. I was not able to finish writing the books that I was working on; and activity which was vital to my family’s fundamental well-being.”

“We were forced to borrow thousands of dollars from our extended family members, which created considerable additional stress for all concerned.”

“We were made destitute and my wife and I still suffering from extreme nervous exhaustion, as we often don’t know how to pay our bills; such as rent, power, telephone, internet, food, clothing, etc. On numerous occasions whilst we were still in New Zealand our service providers found it necessary to send final notices of eviction and termination of services; and our telephones were been shut.” As a direct result of this extensive ongoing damage to our financial balance we were reduced to applying for welfare in New Zealand, Japan and the United States to try to survive during the past six years. Salvation Army saved us in New Zealand by providing us with a residence and food during the period of the trial, and thereafter my wife and children were forced to return to Japan in a destitute circumstance.

“I am making a final effort to make the world aware of what the New Zealand Police force and the associated Ministries and Ministries of New Zealand have done and are continuing to do to us. We are victims of both Human Rights Abuse and Civil Rights Abuse. My children and wife and I were all denied our fundamental right to justice. The New Zealand Police and the (some not all) associated Judges Ministers and Ministries have contravened their own Bill of Rights, their own Criminal Code (particularly Section 116), the United Nations ICCPR (International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights) an have violated our Human Rights both as individuals and as a family.”

Australian Government Analytical Laboratories found appreciable amounts of B12 in mushrooms.

There has long been speculation about whether or not mushrooms provide vitamin B12, a vitamin normally associated with animal foods. In 1987, the Australian Government Analytical Laboratories found appreciable amounts of B12 in mushrooms.

Based on this analysis, the mushroom industry then included B12 as a nutrient in their promotional material and advertising. The B12 level was disputed by some nutrition professionals who believed that only animal sources can provide B12, while others wanted to know whether the B12 claimed to be found was bio-available.

In early 2009, researchers at the University of Western Sydney completed ground-breaking research on the B12 content of button mushrooms. Their detailed experiments on mushrooms of all sizes and stages of growth from around Australia conclusively proved that:

A. Mushrooms do have B12 present. It is on both the surface of the mushroom and in the flesh of the mushroom. The majority of B12 is in the surface of the cup of the mushroom.

B. The B12 present is bio-available, in exactly the same form as B12 in beef liver and fish.

Eagerly Awaited Novel by William Hearth Ponders Secret Alchemy of Mary Magdalene

Tuya, Mary Magdalene, Judas Iscariot, the Ptolemy Families... What really happened: Is there an untold story?

Tuya, Mary Magdalene, Judas Iscariot, the Ptolemy Families… What really happened: Is there an untold story?

Historical romance inferring scandalous romantic links between Mary Magdalene and Judas Iscariot, heralds arrival of Volume II in William Hearth’s series of fearless historical scholarship. Did their lives represent defiance of rabbinical law? What if these well-known historical figures, tempted by fate to become lovers, were actually vegetarians; linked by dietary practice to the religious and cultural traditions proffered by Pythagoras, Buddhism and Ahimsa? Such knowledge would demand from us a more conscientious approach to life. Read now, the insidiously artful “Secret Alchemy of Mary Magdalene Revealed “Part A” and be ready when “Part B” is released this Christmas. Much anticipated “Novel” arrives in spring 2011.

Hearth speculates, “At a time when ancient vegetarian philosophies clashed with the Judaic-temple practice of slaughtering innocent animals for blood sacrifice…” one question in particular begs an answer: “What if these star-crossed lovers, were actually vegetarians? Their Way of Life and dietary practices would have caused them to be labeled as heretics and outcasts throughout Judean society as being Blasphemous… A crime punishable by death,” whereas these days, such knowledge might elicit a more conscious, enlightened Way of Life.

Mary Magdalene's Pink Lotus DAKINI Durga Durgee

Mary Magdalene's Pink Lotus DAKINI Durga Durgee

William Hearth’s most recent book reminds us that we all have the opportunity to reconsider our preconceived notions regarding the historical characters, who all figured so prominently in christian theology; individuals such as Mary Magdalene, Judas Iscariot and Saul (Paul) of Tarsus

William Hearth’s works discuss how “recorded-history” can be, and most often is, written and rewritten, time and again, depending on the prevailing mindset of those in power, during any given period in “realtime-history.”  So-called “politically correct” views are written into, and out of, recorded history on a daily basis… (eg. reference Mary Magdalene’s exoteric and esoteric popularity; past, present and future).

ORMUS ~ The Secret Alchemy of Mary Magdalene Revealed Part [A]
…is more of a macrocosmic view of the “rethink” of the Levantine Jesus Period and the ancient history that leads up to that unique period of history 8,000 B.C. ~ 500A.D. and later the 1400~1500’s. Did women read books in those days: circa 20BC~40AD? Were aristocratic women educated; and in any manner considered to be erudite individuals?

ORMUS ~ The Secret Alchemy of Mary Magdalene Revealed Part [B]
…promises a more intimate look at how Mary Magdalene and her constituency, [including Judas Iscariot (of the Sicarii)] might have lived on a day to day basis… and touches largely upon the Ebionites’ (Ebyonim‘s -> Evyonim) connection with both the Hindu Ahimsa & Buddhist philosophies [of 400B.C. and earlier] as well as the ISIS / Goddess sects (of the Egyptians and Babylonians…) The non-violent lifestyle of vegans and vegetarians would certainly have clashed with the Orthodox Judaic temple practices of offering blood sacrifices (of innocent animals). Hence connections are made [in Part B, primarily (and part A as well)] to ancient and modern concerns of living lightly on the Earth, whilst attempting to maintain good relations with one’s neighbors on all sides.

Part B~ also includes an expose on more specific chemical methods and formulae of acquiring and producing ORMUS according to ancient formulae and techniques.

The Secret Alchemy of Mary Magdalene: The NOVEL
The upcoming NOVEL  (proposed debut late spring of 2011) is an historical romance based on the foundational research accumulated during the production of Parts A & B;

It is a NOVEL
…wherein, the intimate potential and various possibilities that would have been inherent in the lifestyles of individuals such as Mary Magdalene, Judas Iscariot (of the Sicarii) and other Financial Sponsors of the Ebionite Movement are explored in exquisite detail.

Who are the Essenes really; the Ebyonim or Ebionites?

Mary Magdalene & Judas Iscariot's ancient future

Mary Magdalene & Judas Iscariot's Ancient Future: The Many Spiritual Descendants of Mary Magdalene

Who are the Essenes really?
Are they the Ebyonim (Ebionites)?

They certainly would have been trying their best to be of service to the Ebyonim (Ebionites), but they very likely were not “The Ebyonim,” per se.

The immediate following reference and paragraphs are based on the writings of the Roman Pliny the Elder (died c. 79 A.D.) in his Natural History (N’H,V,XV).
However, nany other refrences and hypothesis follow.

Pliny, relates in a few lines that thepossess no money, and had existed for thousands of generations and (quite erroneously) that Essenes do not marry (for in fact they did and do today celebrate life passionately; and as such they happily produced many healthy vegetarian children). Unlike Philo, who did not mention any particular geographical location of the Essenes other than the whole land of Israel, Pliny places them in the Ein Gedi ares, in near proximity to the Dead Sea.

A little later Josephus gave a detailed account of the Essenes in The Jewish War (c. 75 A.D.) with a shorter description in Antiquities of the Jews (c. 94 A.D.) and The Life of Flavius Josephus (c. 97 A.D.). Claiming first hand knowledge, he lists the Essenoi as one of the three sects of Jewish philosophy[6] alongside the Pharisees and the Sadducees. He relates the same information concerning piety, celibacy, the absence of personal property and of money, the belief in communality and commitment to a strict observance of the Sabbath. He further adds that the Essenes ritually immersed in water every morning, ate together after prayer, devoted themselves to charity and benevolence, forbade the expression of anger, studied the books of the elders, preserved secrets, and were very mindful of the names of the angels kept in their sacred writings.

Campaign of terror & character assassination targeted Mary Magdalene & Judas Iscariot “Sicarii”

 

Revisiting the histories of Judas Iscariot and Mary Magdalene

Revisiting the histories of Judas Iscariot and Mary Magdalene. Was Judas Iscariot (Sicarii) framed by Paul (Saul) of Tarsus? Did Paul (Saul) of Tarsus "demonize" Mary Magdalene?

QUESTIONS THAT MERIT INVESTIGATION

Did Mary Magdalene act as wife to the man whom we today incorrectly refer to as Jesus the Christ and was she a mentor to Judas Iscariot (of the Sicarii); Moreover, was Judas Iscariot actually the most devoted, loyal and trusted disciple of Jesus?

Was Mary Magdalene a well-respected leader among the early Jesus movement: Was she THE Migdal-Eder i.e. “Tower of the Flock”? Was she one of THE principal Leaders? If there was no Catholic Church during their lifetime, then why would Mary Magdalene and Judas Iscariot (Sicarii) have been considered heretics and by whom?

Did Judas really betray Jesus and Mary, or did Saul (Paul) of Tarsus and other detractors of Mary Magdalene, frame Judas Iscariot and deceive Peter?

Did Saul (Paul) of Tarsus (and later, his following) wage a campaign of terror and character assassination against Mary Magdalene and Judas Iscariot (Sicarii) and their descendents, Read more of this post
