SPECIAL REPORTS

“Christ-Like Nature Within Us All”

“Christ-Like Nature Within Us All”

    “Spiritual union is a state of the soul very clear in my perception, although I may not be able to give you a definite impression of this state. In order to benefit you, it became necessary for me to enter into your state, to have an experimental knowledge, an endurance and suffering of the same state. By this experience I [...]

“VILCABAMBA: Last Stronghold of the Inca”

“VILCABAMBA: Last Stronghold of the Inca”

  The Peruvian jungle holds the ancient city of Vilcabamba, the secret center of Inca resistance, which held out for 40 years against Spanish invaders. The print edition of the January/February 2020 issue of National Geogrpahic History magazine holds an article on the lost city of the Inca, the secret refuge of Vilcabamba: [...]

“The Sun and the World Energy Supply”

“The Sun and the World Energy Supply”

  Image credit: NSO/NSF/AURA   “Every two minutes, the energy reaching the Earth from the Sun is equivalent to the whole annual energy use of humanity. All the energy – the cars, lighting, and air conditioning of the world – in one year is equivalent to two minutes of the Sun.” Sadly, we lack the technology to [...]

“Spirit of Art for a Harmonious World”

“Spirit of Art for a Harmonious World”

    “The voice of our age seems by no means favorable to art, at all events to that kind of art to which my inquiry is directed. The course of events has given a direction to the genius of the time that threatens to remove it continually further from the ideal of art. For art has to leave reality, it has to raise itself boldly [...]

“These Images Show the Sun’s Surface in Greater Detail Than Ever Before”

“These Images Show the Sun’s Surface in Greater Detail Than Ever Before”

  The Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope released the highest resolution observations of the sun’s surface ever taken. These cell-like structures — each about the size of Texas — are the signature of violent motions that transport heat from the inside of the sun to its surface. Video by NSO/NSF/AURACredit   A new telescope [...]

“Wal Thornhill: Velikovsky’s Astrophysics | EU2017”

“Wal Thornhill: Velikovsky’s Astrophysics | EU2017”

    In 1950 Immanuel Velikovsky threw down a gauntlet to astronomers in his sensational best-selling book, Worlds in Collision, where he proposed, on the basis of documentary evidence, that gravitation is an electromagnetic phenomenon. Leading American astronomers were enraged and behaved like medieval priests whose sanctified [...]

“Children of God Awakened by the Sun”

“Children of God Awakened by the Sun”

    “It is troublesome thing to mortify the evil Will of Self; none are willing to do it. We would all gladly be the Children of God, if we might be so with the rough garment of fallen nature about us. But this cannot be. This world passeth away, and the outward life must die; what good can the adoption of the mortal body of [...]

“Why is Sunrise Important you ask?”

“Why is Sunrise Important you ask?”

    Here's one reason... Your #circadianrhythm is set hardest when you see morning light earliest. When you start missing strong early morning light, your body clocks run late which means you can't fall asleep as well or wake up as easy. Essentially your sleep quality and/or time declines. What happens [...]

“Glorious Light of Beauty and Truth”

“Glorious Light of Beauty and Truth”

    “Light reveals the glories of the external world and yet is the most glorious of them all. It gives beauty, reveals beauty and is itself most beautiful. It is the analyzer, the truth-teller and the exposer of shams, for it shows things as they are. Its infinite streams measure off the universe and flow into our telescopes [...]

“Galactic Beams: The Sun & Cosmic Rays; Science & Prophecy”

“Galactic Beams: The Sun & Cosmic Rays; Science & Prophecy”

    Here we are in 2020. Some are embarking on the new decade with optimism, and others with apprehension. This week I have been looking to both science and prophecy for clues as to what we can expect. The key themes that caught my attention were: changes in the Sun and cosmic radiation; Earth changes, including earthquakes [...]
