Eleusinian Mysteries

The Rites of Eleusis, or the Eleusinian Mysteries, were the secret rituals of the mystery school of Eleusis and were observed regularly from c. 1600 BCE - 392 CE. Exactly what this mystic ritual was no one knows.

Nobody know what form these rituals took. We do know, though, that those who participated in the mysteries were forever changed for the better and that they no longer feared death.

Who participated in the mysteries were forever changed.

Cicero writes, "Nothing is higher than these mysteries...they have not only shown us how to live joyfully but they have taught us how to die with a better hope"

I couldn't find the articles right now but there was a research done that showed having good sex makes people believe in afterlife and souls.

I'm fairly certain all iniciatic schools with "mysteries" did practice sex magick, which is just a convoluted way of talking about non-lustful, deeply intimate sex.

>>18941878
Maybe sex and drugs, but not sure about sex.

complementing:

At Eleusis they would rest by the well Demeter had sat down by, would fast, and would then drink a barley and mint beverage called Kykeon. It has been suggested that this drink was infused by the psychotropic fungus ergot and this, then, heightened the experience and helped transform the initiate. After drinking the Kykeon the participants entered the Telesterion, an underground `theatre', where the secret ritual took place. Most likely it was a symbolic re-enactment of the `death' and rebirth of Persephone which the initates watched and, perhaps, took some part in. Whatever happened in the Telesterion, those who entered in would come out the next morning radically changed. Virtually every important thinker and writer in antiquity, everyone who was `anyone', was an initiate of the Mysteries.

Don't do that, if you publicly acknowledge the house is haunted you'll have to disclose it to a potential buyer and I imagine that will lower the property value

Light and airflow.

Open the blinds, let the Sun shine in and open the windows, let the Air flow well.

>>18941779
thanks for your concern but the reason i jumped to paranormal is because the house i have is next to a lot of abandoned places and some of them had things like pentagrams and so, it usually turned on the things more than of for example when i lay on the bed preparing to sleep it usually plays with it for a little like turning it on and off for like 5 times then it stops, i jokingly said a time "can you turn it on" while i was trying to look at the time on my phone but was to lazy to pick it up so it turned on after that i said "thank you" and the monitor flicked, i don't really feel it like a evil kind of ghost but it's still pretty spooky.

Lights on, window open, say Psalm 91.

The Good will rush to your aid if you even think of the help and are sincere about it.

Know this though: The fear is their food. They want the fear. That is why they do odd things to creep you out, to make you afraid. Then they siphon off the energy released or something like that.

You must be confident.

Think of this: If there is something bad there, there is something Good somewhere. You just need to call it and it will come. That's why I'm avoiding saying "God". Call upon the GOOD.

They will come.

But you must have fresh air and light, immediately you will sense the difference in the atmosphere there if you add air and light.

Ask yourself: Am I conscious?
You might think that your consciousness is the one who answered, but it is also the one who asked. There is no way to trap it and see what it really is. It is like a dog chasing a hare but when the dog catches it becomes the hare and it starts again.

Is it paranormal do break this loop?
Is it godlike?
Can one achieve this while alive?

Consciousness is the continuous flow between the voice and the listener.

Consciousness is the snake climbing the world tree.

Consciousness is void and matter mixing in space.

Consciousness is 0 and 1.

To break this circle is to break yourself.

Understanding life is a noble goal, but are we really smart enough to do so? You cant explain math to a mouse. If we were able to understand life, i think we would already have done so. At the end of the day, we dont have the mental power to understand it all. That doesnt mean the answers arent there.

You can think of reality as a set of options. Everything you experience can be observed as a set of options for the next thing which is to be observed. The ultimate option then is "what sort of options do you want to have the ability to observe?" On the one hand, being repeatedly offered the same options you don't want to choose can be irritating, even offensive, like a DDOS attack to the senses. On the other hand, the only way to not experience having those options offered to you is to give up the ability to choose them.

This is the paradox of freewill. There is more than one solution. How people solve this paradox determines the configuration of their soul. This is generally speaking what this world is for, at this time. Because life on Earth has been isolated in a spiritual sense, whatever solution people do arrive at in regards to the paradox of freewill is considered to be their authentic choice.

You may call this godlike if you wish. However, this is the time of people learning and discussing publicly ways to both break out of causality, or reestablish it when broken. Far from being an impossible task while alive, it is a trending realization. Indeed, completing a life *without* arriving at a decisive solution to the paradox of freewill is a good way to reincarnate with your memory blank slated on a world like this, where the solution hasn't been predetermined already. Or said another way, worlds like Earth are places where new souls--which have never experienced reincarnation in recent memory--are grown.

Whether you want to believe that continuing one's consciousness beyond the point of organic death is possible or not is a question I will let you decide for yourself.

/x/ I come to you with a message from God. First a little background on myself. I was an atheist from most of my life, 6 to 28 years old, I'm 31 the end of this year. I've had a bit of a rocky life, raped and molested at age 6 and the reason why I abandoned God. Started using drugs hard at age 11. Incarcerated from 14- 18 and homeless off and on from 18 to 25. I should also point out that i have an 8th grade education and an IQ above 140. When i was 28 I decided I would start a religion for profit, after all hope sells. Well I was sitting in my room one night thinking of ways to start my skeem when I came up with a theory I have on mars. Mars is roughly 1/3 smaller than earth and is made of the of the same material and formed around the same time. Mars being 1/3 smaller than earth it's molten iron core cooled 1/3 faster, rendering the planet uninhabitable. I then theorized that the former inhabitants of mars were able to travel space to earth, bringing with them the value of gold and silver. These 2 elements are vital to intergalactic space travel as they would be needed in massive amounts to produce the massive electrical systems needed to travel the stars. It was at this point my life changed, sitting there in my room trying to come up with a religion to scam people out of money, God came to me. Not in a vision or with a voice but a simple tap on my head followed by what I can only discrib as waves through my whole body, or like if buckets of water had been dumped on me. I just knew, God is real, Jesus Christ was the physical manifestation of God on earth. There was something else that came with this knowledge as well, the true meaning of the Holy Trinity, and foresight to the things that are to come. The synagogues of Satan will be formed soon, it'll be formed when the Vatican, the state of Israel, and the Saudi kingdom will come together to form what they will call the Church of God. After the synagogues of Satan is formed the antichrist will reveal himself.

Meanwhile, the four groups, through the divine powers of the Buddha, saw the bodhisattvas filling the empty space of immeasurable hundreds of thousands of millions of billions of lands. Among these bodhisattvas, there were four leaders. The first leader was called Superior Actions, the second leader was called Boundless Actions, the third leader was called Pure Actions, and the fourth leader was called Steadfast Actions. These four bodhisattvas were the foremost teachers and leaders among the assembly. (LS 15: 1.8)

“For those children of the Buddhas
who have been practicing many good karma
and seeking the unsurpassed wisdom,
the Buddha will teach them the pure way. (Lotus Sutra 1: 2.14)
