If only ONE


If ONE ray of sun can inspire the day,
Then the stars itself can set your limits.

If just ONE person can make you feel the world within,
Then every person is also as valuable as a gift.

If in ONE blink the memories are flashed,
Then every dream are worth to be implemented to pile on those memories.

If ONE achieved success can forgive the mistakes and failures,
Then every obstacle is a path itself.

If ONE breath is enough to revive the hopes of living,
Then every moment is worthy to be lived rather than spent.

If ONE step can give giant leap to many,
Than every thought for greatness must be striven for.

Life is not a thing which can be taken for granted. And everything in life is not just an aspect .

But everything seen, dreamed, visualized, lived, spent, felt, many many more, are to be honored and treasured and to be determined on them fore acquiring more of it.

Spear of Destiny & Holy Lance



Hitler's successes as Nazi dictator have given way to a number of occult theories. One of the most common of these is the story of the Spear of Destiny. Also called the Holy Lance, this spear is the name given to the lance that supposedly pierced Jesus's side as he hung on the cross in John's account of his death. Legend has it that whoever possesses the lance will rule the world.

Biblical References

The lance is mentioned only in the Gospel of John (19:31­37) and not in any of the Synoptic Gospels. The gospel states that the Romans planned to break Jesus' legs, a practice known as crurifragium, which was a method of hastening death during a crucifixion. Just before they did so, they realized that Jesus was already dead and that there was no reason to break his legs. To make sure that he was dead, a Roman centurion named in extra-Biblical tradition as Longinus stabbed him in the side.

The phenomenon of blood and water was considered a miracle by Origen (although the water may be explained biologically by the piercing of the pericardial sinus secondary to cardiac tamponade.) Catholics generally choose to employ a more allegorical interpretation: it represents the Church (and more specifically, the sacraments of Baptism and the Eucharist) issuing from the side of Christ, just as Eve was taken from the side of Adam.

One of the earliest mentions of a relic preserved as the Holy Lance is in the account of the pilgrim Antoninus of Piacenza, about 570, who described the holy places of Jerusalem, where he saw in the basilica of Mount Zion "the crown of thorns with which Our Lord was crowned and the lance with which he was struck in the side".

According to the Catholic Encyclopedia, the presence in Jerusalem of this relic is attested half a century earlier by Cassiodorus and was known to Gregory of Tours.

In 615 Jerusalem was captured for the Persian King Khosrau II; according to the Chronicon Paschale, the iron point of the lance, which had been broken off, was given in the same year to Nicetas, who took it to Constantinople and deposited it in the church of Hagia Sophia.

This lance-point, embedded in an icon, was obtained in 1244 from the Latin emperor at Constantinople, Baldwin II, by Louis IX of France, who enshrined it with his relic of the Crown of Thorns in the Sainte Chapelle, Paris. During the French Revolution these relics were removed to the Bibliotheque Nationale and then disappeared.

The name of the soldier who pierced Christ's side is not given in the Gospel of John, but in the oldest known references to the legend, the apocryphal Gospel of Nicodemus appended to late manuscripts of the 4th century Acts of Pilate. The soldier is identified as a Centurion and called Logginus or Longinus (making the spear's "correct" Latin name Lancea Longini).

A form of the name Longinus also occurs on a miniature in the Rabula Gospels (conserved in the Laurentian Library, Florence, which was illuminated by one Rabulas in the year 586. In the miniature, the name LOGINOS is written in Greek characters above the head of the soldier who is thrusting his lance into Christ's side. This is one of the earliest records of the name, if the inscription is not a later addition.

Another "Longinus" is credited with the authorship of the treatise On the Sublime. Roman names held little variety, especially among members of the same family.


Various Relics Claimed to be the Holy Lance

There have been many relics that are claimed to be the Holy Lance, or parts of it.


Vatican Lance

No actual lance is known until the pilgrim Antoninus of Piacenza (AD/Crystalinks/Conspiracies html/speardestiny.html 570), describing the holy places of Jerusalem, says that he saw in the Basilica of Mount Zion "the crown of thorns with which Our Lord was crowned and the lance with which He was struck in the side". A mention of the lance also occurs in the so-called Breviarius at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. The presence in Jerusalem of this important relic is attested by Cassiodorus (c. 485 - c. 585) as well as by Gregory of Tours (c. 538 ­ 594), who had not actually been to Jerusalem.

In 615 Jerusalem and its relics were captured by the Persian forces of King Khosrau II (Chosroes II). According to the Chronicon Paschale, the point of the lance, which had been broken off, was given in the same year to Nicetas, who took it to Constantinople and deposited it in the church of Hagia Sophia, and later to the Church of the Virgin of the Pharos.

This point of the lance, which was now set in an icon, was sold in 1244 by Baldwin II of Constantinople to Louis IX of France, and it was enshrined with the Crown of Thorns in the Sainte Chapelle in Paris. During the French Revolution these relics were removed to the Bibliothèque Nationale but subsequently disappeared. (The present "Crown of Thorns" is a wreath of rushes.)

As for the larger portion of the lance, Arculpus claimed he saw it at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre around 670 in Jerusalem, but there is otherwise no mention of it after the sack in 615. Some claim that the larger relic had been conveyed to Constantinople sometime during the 8th century, possibly at the same time as the Crown of Thorns. At any rate, its presence at Constantinople seems to be clearly attested by various pilgrims, particularly Russians, and, though it was deposited in various churches in succession, it seems possible to trace it and distinguish it from the relic of the point. Sir John Mandeville declared in 1357 that he had seen the blade of the Holy Lance both at Paris and at Constantinople, and that the latter was a much larger relic than the former.

Whatever the Constantinople relic was, it fell into the hands of the Turks, and in 1492, under circumstances minutely described in Pastor's History of the Popes, the Sultan Bayazid II sent it to Innocent VIII to encourage the pope to continue to keep his brother and rival Zizim (Cem) prisoner. At this time great doubts as to its authenticity were felt at Rome, as Johann Burchard records, because of the presence of other rival lances in Paris (the point that had been separated from the lance), Nuremberg (see "Vienna lance" below), and Armenia.

In the mid 1700s Benedict XIV states that he obtained from Paris an exact drawing of the point of the lance, and that in comparing it with the larger relic in St. Peter's he was satisfied that the two had originally formed one blade. This relic has never since left Rome, where it is preserved under the dome of Saint Peter's Basilica, although the Roman Catholic Church makes no claim as to its authenticity.


Echmiadzin Lance

The lance currently in Echmiadzin, Armenia, was discovered during the First Crusade. In 1098 the crusader Peter Bartholomew reported that he had a vision in which St. Andrew told him that the Holy Lance was buried in St. Peter's Cathedral in Antioch

Thule Society


The Thule-Gesellschaft (Thule Society) was founded August 17, 1918, by Rudolf von Sebottendorff. He had been schooled in occultism, Islamic mysticism, alchemy, Rosicrucianism and much else, in Turkey, where he had also been initiated into Freemasonry.

Its original name was Studiengruppe für germanisches Altertum (Study Group for German Antiquity), but it soon started to disseminate anti-republican and anti-Semitic propaganda.

A movement to promote Thulian ideas among industrial workers and to offset Marxism, was formed in August 1918 - the Workers' Political Circle with Thulist Karl Harrer as chairman.

From this came the German Workers' Party in 1919.

A year later this became the NSDAP under the leadership of Adolf Hitler. It had members from the top echelons of the party, including Rudolf Hess and Alfred Rosenberg, though not Adolf Hitler. Serbottendorff stated, "Thule members were the people to whom Hitler first turned and who first allied themselves with Hitler."

The swastika flag adopted by the NSDAP was the brain-child of another Thulist, Dr Krohn.

Its press organ was the Münchener Beobachter (Munich Observer) which later became the Völkischer Beobachter (People's Observer). The Thule Society is known to be closely connected to the Germanenorden secret society.

The Germanenorden was a secret society in Germany early in the 20th century. Formed by several prominent German occultists in 1912, the order, whose symbol was a Swastika had a hierarchical fraternal structure similar to freemasonry. It taught to its initiates nationalist ideologies of nordic race superiority, antisemitism as well as occult, almost magical philosophies. Some say that the Deutsche Arbeiter-Partei (later the Nazi Party) when under the leadership of Adolf Hitler was a political front, and indeed the organisation reflected many ideologies of the party, including the swastika symbol. The Thule Society, another secret society with similar ideologies and symbols was also closely linked to this.

With the victory of the Nazi Party, the occult tradition was carried on in the Third Reich mainly by the SS, who Reichsfuhrer, Himmler, was an avid student of the occult. An SS occult research department, the Ahnernerbe (Ancestral Heritage) was established in 1935 with SS Colonel Wolfram von Sievers at its head. Occult research took SS researchers as far afield as Tibet. Sievers had the Tantrik prayer, the Bardo Thodol, read over his body after his execution at Nuremberg.

National Socialism and the Third Reich represented a major attempt by high esoteric Adepts to re-establish a Culture based on the Laws of Nature, against the entrenched forces of anti-Life. Nothing that ambitious had been tried since the founding of the American Republic by Masonic adepts.

The Thule Society inner circle beliefs ...

    Thule was a legendary island in the far north, similar to Atlantis, supposedly the center of a lost, high-level civilization. But not all secrets of that civilization had been completely wiped out. Those that remained were being guarded by ancient, highly intelligent beings (similar to the "Masters" of Theosophy or the White Brotherhood).

    The truly initiated could establish contact with these beings by means of magic-mystical rituals.

    The "Masters" or "Ancients" allegedly would be able to endow the initiated with supernatural strength and energy.

    With the help of these energies the goal of the initiated was to create a race of Supermen of "Aryan" stock who would exterminate all "inferior" races.

On April 6, 1919, in Bavaria, left wing socialists and anarchists proclaimed the Bavarian Soviet Republic. The brains of the revolution were a group of writers who had little idea of administration. Life in munich grew chaotic. The counter-revolutionary forces, the whites, composed of various groups of decommissioned soldiers known as "Frei Corps", equipped and financed by the mysterious Thule Society, defeated the Bavarian Soviet within a matter of weeks.

Many other decommissioned soldiers waited out the turbulence in barracks, pfc Adolph Hitler among them. After the Bavarian Republic had been defeated by the Whites, in May, Hitler's superiors put him to work in the post revolution investigating commission. His indictments injected ruthless efficiency into the kangaroo courts as he fingered hundreds of noncommissioned officers and enlisted men who had sympathized with the communist and anarchists. He was subsequently sent to attend special anticommunist training courses and seminars at the University which were financed by the Reichswehr administration and by private donors from the Thule Society.

This led to an assignment in the intelligence division of the postwar German army, to infiltrate groups that could organize the working classes while the communists were weak. On a September evening, 1919, Hitler turned up in the Sternecker Beer Hall where members and friends of the budding German Workers Party had gathered. He quietly listened to the presentation by engineer Gottfried Feder, a Thule Society member, who talked about jewish control over lending capital. When one of the other group members called for Bavaria to break away from the rest of Germany, Hitler sprang into action. The astonished audience stood by while his highly aggressive remarks and compelling oratory swept through the room. After Hitler had finished his harangue, party chairman and founder, Anton Drexler, immediately asked him to a meeting of the party's steering committee held a few days later. He was asked to join the committee as its seventh member, responsible for advertising and propaganda.

Back in 1912, several German occultists with radical anti-semitic inclinations decided to form a "magic" lodge, which they named the Order of Teutons. the main founders were Theodor Fritsch, a publisher of an anti-semitic journal; Philipp Stauff, pupil of the racist Guido Von List, and Hermann Pohl, the order's chancellor. (Pohl would drop out three years later to found his own bizarre lodge, the Walvater Teutonic Order of the Holy Grail.) The Order of Teutons was organized along the lines of the Free Masons or the Rosicrucians, having differing degrees of initiation, only persons who could fully document that they were of pure "aryan" ancestry were allowed to join.

In 1915, Pohl was joined by Rudolf Blauer, who held a Turkish passport and practiced sufi meditation. He also dabbled in astrology and was an admirer of Lanz Von Liebenfels and Guido Von List, both pathologically anti-semitic. Blauer went by the name of Rudolf Freiherr Von Seboottendorf. He was very wealthy, although the origin of his fortune is unknown. He became the Grand Master of the Bavarian Order and he founded the Thule Society, with Pohl's approval, in 1918.

After the Bavarian communist revolution of 1918, the Thule Society became a center of the counterrevolutionary subculture. An espionage network and arms caches were organized. The Thule Club rooms became a nest of resistance to the revolution and the Munich Soviet Republic.

Journalist Karl Harrer was given the job of founding a political "w

Dermatography and Medical Palmistry


From years we have been seeing people predicting futures and fortunes from the impressions of the dermis of the palm. What if i say these can be used to predict or even estimate the outcomes of health by those????
Well, anatomically, these palmar impressions are the joining or the union of underlying deep fascia with the superficial fascia (skin). The art of characterization and foretelling the future through the study of the palm, also known as palm reading (palmistry), or chirology (chiromancy or cheiromancy). The practice is found all over the world, with numerous cultural variations.Palms have lines, ridges, and deeper lines (shape of hands) that reflect characteristics of a person. When reading a palm we can identify and diagnose the diseases according to the characters.Palmistry is based upon the interpretation of the general characteristics of one's hands, together with the study of the lines, their patterns and other formations and marks, which appear on the palms and fingers.Although the general nature of one's hands does not change, the lines, patterns and formations do. Palmistry may relate to the physical state, emotional, mental and health condition, tendencies and modes of interaction with others.Palmistry is a marvelous edifice today. It borrows its stones from the ancient civilizations of all lands. Your palm is your personality. Very few people realize that they are carrying around a full-scope map of their character and potentialities. Besides being a fascinating study, palmistry can help in vocational guidance, health and psychological diagnosis, partnership compatibility, etc.
The art and science of hand - reading originated in India. The ancient monuments of India take us back to the prehistoric period of the Aryan civilization. Among the Hindu sages who propagated this art include Garga, Gautama, Bharadwaja, Agastya, Bhrigu, Atri and Kashyapa. It is mentioned in the Puranas that the divine sage, Narada, practised this art. Maharshi Valmiki is reported to have written a book entitled “The Teachings of Valmiki Maharshi on Male Palmistry, comprising 567 stanzas, about 4,000 to 5,000 years ago.From India, the art of hand - reading spread to China, Tibet, Egypt, Persia and to other countries in Europe. Palmistry came to China about 3,000 years before the birth of Christ. It progressed well in Greece where Anaxagoras practiced it. According to Hindu philosophy; a person takes birth according to his / her past actions (karmas). As Human beings differ in shape, features, constitution, etc., so do the lines on the hands so that the redges on the thumb and papillary lines on the fingers and the thumb do not agree with those on any other thumb and fingers even from amongst billon people.
Medical Palmistry in Practice is an excellent guide to diagnosis of different physical and psychological disorders through analysis of nails, fingers, palm and different lines and signs of the hand. The link between palmistry and health is an established fact. The hand is indeed an indicator of health problems. The hand not only provides an early warning for forthcoming diseases, but it also serves as a guide for all physical and mental ailments. It is a work of immense diagnostic value in Medicine, equally important and helpful both for doctors and patients. It provides the useful data for diagnosis of different physical and mental disorders. The data will have a special significance for practitioners and researchers in Medicine. A medical palmist can predict both the existing and advancing health problems, a person is facing or likely to face. Anything beyond normal is abnormal is the logic used after providing a criterion for normal hand.

Pyromania


Pyromania is one of several, in more extreme circumstances can be Impulse Control Disorders. Pyromania is characterized by an impulse to set fires, and involves deliberate and purposeful fire setting with tension or heightened arousal prior to the act and gratification or relief following the act of setting the fire. The fire is not set for monetary gain out of any sense of revenge or anger.

Pyromania is a rare disorder with an incidence of less than one percent in most studies; also, pyromaniacs are a very small proportion of psychiatric hospital admissions. Pyromania can occur in children as young as age three, though such cases are rare. Only a small percentage of children and adolescents arrested for arson are child pyromaniacs. It is normal for some children to go through a stage where they are fascinated by fire. However, once they are taught about that fire is dangerous, this fascination is typically tempered by safety concerns. Some children will still play with fire, infrequently, and this is a frightening prospect for parents, but it does not qualify as a psychiatric disorder.

Pyromania involves planning and is more compulsive than impulsive. Pyromania is not diagnosed unless a patient has deliberately set more than one destructive fire, with no external motive like collecting insurance money or covering up a crime. It is not diagnosed where fire setting is part of another illness like Conduct Disorder in children, or psychotic processes that occur in Schizophrenia or Bipolar Disorder, or if the person sets the fire in response to a delusion or hallucination. Adolescent fire setting is usually associated with Conduct Disorder, ADHD, or Adjustment Disorder. Pyromania occurs more commonly in males, especially those with poor social skills and learning difficulties. Pyromaniacs often have poor learning skills, learning disabilities, or problems dealing with other people or social situations. Most childhood cases of Pyromania do resolve, but untreated adult cases do not.

What are the symptoms?

Deliberate, purposeful fire setting on more than one occasion
A fascination with and attraction to fire, fire alarms, fire paraphernalia
Fire is not set for money, anger, social or political reasons, or to conceal criminal activity
Tension or anxiety prior to the action, followed by relief after the fire is set
Patient likes to watch fires of any kind
Fire setting is not better accounted for by delusion, hallucination, dementia, retardation, substance abuse or other mental disorder like Conduct Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia

How is it diagnosed and treated?

Doctors will rule out other disorders and disease prior to diagnosing Pyromania. Some disorders (Antisocial Personality Disorder, Conduct Disorder, Manic Episodes in Bipolar Disorder, Substance Abuse, Mental Retardation, and Psychosis) can exhibit similar signs.

Doctors will perform a thorough physical and mental health evaluation to rule out other disease, and will look for the following signs:

Patient does not have any other motive or illness that might explain the fire setting
Patient experiences relief from tension after setting fire
Patient has set more than one purposeful fire

Treatment(s) can include:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Self-Help Groups
Psychotherapy
Medication as appropriate to prevent aggressive outbursts and anxiety
