Articles To Ponder: Robert Anton Wilson’s “What Is Kabbalah?”

“To the Kabbalist, the whole universe is a network of meaningful connections. The seemingly coincidental is as full of meaning as anything else. To begin thinking like a Kabbalist, you must regard everything as being just as important as everything else. All that seems ‘accidental,’ ‘meaningless,’ ‘chaotic,’ ‘weird,’ ‘nonsensical,’ et cetera is as significant as what seems lawful, orderly, and comprehensible.”

Sacred Beauty-Jagua Temp Tattoo Body Art

In your spiritual aesthetic journey, you may have seen people wearing what appears to be henna tattoos that are pure black instead of the typical auburn brown shade. This most likely was done using Jagua fruit extract; Jagua fruit extract is the ONLY thing that can safely produce jet-black mehndi tattoos. Black temporary tattoo products that contain PPD are not safe and should never be used.

The tradition of using Jagua fruit to make beautiful, intricate temp tattoos was invented by the indigenous peoples of South America. It resembles and is applied in a similar way to Mehndi, the henna-based body art of India.

Jagua art lasts for several weeks on the skin. It is considered safe for most people; the only persons who should avoid it are those who have allergies to fruit, especially berries, because those people may experience severe contact dermatitis after application. Everyone who tries it should apply a small test patch somewhere on the arm, to be certain there are no allergies involved.

The Tao Te Ching

One essential piece of reading is The Tao Te Ching. Here is an excerpt;

The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao.
The name that can be named is not the eternal name.
The nameless is the beginning of heaven and Earth.
The named is the mother of the ten thousand things.
Ever desireless, one can see the mystery.
Ever desiring, one sees the manifestations.
These two spring from the same source but differ in name; this appears as darkness.
Darkness within darkness.
The gate to all mystery.

One way to read the Tao Te Ching is to visit https://ttc.tasuki.org/display:Year:1972,1988,1996,2004/section:1
Another way to read it is to purchase a copy of one of the translations..I recommend the older ones because they are more literal and contain less paraphrasing.
