Deciphering the Golden Flower One Secret at a Time
Often described as a clinical study of Kundalini, as told by Henry Miller, as lived by Holden Caulfield, Deciphering the Golden Flower One Secret at a Time is an interpretive companion piece to The Secret of the Golden Flower, an acknowledged masterpiece of Chinese alchemy that has challenged scholars for centuries. Not even Richard Wilhelm, the translator, or Carl Gustav Jung, the famous psychologist, who wrote the original commentary to The Secret of the Golden Flower, were able to plumb the depths of this method. Now, for the first time ever, a book dares to reveal the secrets of the world's most influential meditation method. The author, JJ Semple shares his many years of first-hand practice with the sacred book's meditation system. One-by-one, he reveals the techniques behind the book's secrets, providing clear instructions on how to use them. This book is an extraordinary statement about the inevitability of karma and the obstacles to self-realization.
Passmore of Blackboy Hill, Bristol
George Passmore Ltd. (Bristol) Article written in the Illustrated Bristol News 1962. BRISTOL IN 1871. A bustling, gaslit city, very much to the fore of the Victorian scene. A city, too, steeped in the traditions of the Merchant Venturers. They had brought fame and wealth and a good deal of fine living. And they brought something else. Opportunity. George Passmore, a young Devonian up from Barnstaple, was quick to see that. He looked about him and took stock of the situation. He thought, no doubt, that fine china and glassware would find a ready market with the gentry. He was more or less right. Now to set about setting himself up. George, then 23, a man who had grown up the hard way, married a pretty girl called Lavinia Alden at St. Mary Redcliffe Church in defiance of advice from his employer, a well known wholesale and retail draper. A coincidence of the marriage was this. The curate who performed the ceremony was a Rev. Arthur Wedgwood. A name, obviously, which had a special significance to George and his young wife when they launched a little crockery shop in a small cottage in Grove Road, Redland, with a capital of only ?20. This was the birth of the old-established firm of china and glass specialists, George Passmore Ltd., who, some ninety years later, are today carrying on the trade from their premises on Blackboy Hill, Bristol. George was to go through some hard times. But he was a resolute man and he knew how to handle them. There were early hardships. Then, the business started to increase. Slowly at first, until, little by little, it gained a deserved reputation. It was established. After the birth of the Passmore’s two eldest children (they had a family of six, incidentally), they moved to the firm’s present premises, then three cottages. These were made into one large shop with a warehouse at the rear and living quarters and more stockrooms above. It was a first-class, cornerpiece site. Attics had to be built onto the premises to accommodate the family. Mrs. Passmore was an industrious woman. She had, remember, a large family to look after. But she managed to help run the shop and make the frequent trip into Bristol to do buying. She was, in fact, a pretty shrewd businesswoman. She had a keen eye for quality. George Passmore could rest assured that no trash got by her. She was equally adept at salesmanship. Generally, she did a great deal to put the shop on a sound basis. On one of their trips into town, however, Mr. and Mis. Passmore met with a serious accident. It happened in Lower Maudlin Street. Their horse must have shied. They were both thrown out of the trap into the road. Into hospital they went. Unfortunately, Mr. Passmore had a permanent limp because of the accident. While they were away someone, of course, had to run the shop. This was ably done by two of their children, Nelsie and George, aged 13 and 14. The two made a splendid job of it. But it was a constant disappointment that neither of Mr. and Mrs. Passmore’s sons went into the business. The eldest, George, Junior, went to America when he was 17 and made good on the New York stock exchange as a stockbroker. Still, the firm was established and gradually the name of Passmore of Bristol became a recognised china and glass agent to all the leading manufacturers in the country. Buying was done in Staffordshire by the travellers. Many became close friends of Mr. and Mrs. Passmore. That reveals part of the success of the business. It was a personal touch. This is still very much maintained today. The firm is rightly proud that it still serves customers who have been going to them for 50 years. Passmore’s have supplied some of the wealthiest families in Bristol. They have exported. Numbered among their customers is, for instance, an American ‘steel man’ who regularly buys from their shop on Blackboy Hill. A letter from him ends in typical fashion: lam very pleased indeed to have once again done business with your firm’. Markets and prices were, of course, very different in those early days. There was a time when Passmore’s did quite a trade in red-ware flower pots. These went to nurseries and gardeners. A load was even shipped to the Scilly Isles. It was hard work for little gain. But it was the way things had to be in the days of penny cups and tumblers. Yes, flower pots.. . They were made locally and ‘hauled’ by horse and cart from St. Phillip’s. This job took half a day. A far cry, certainly, from today’s methods of transport. And what about those penny cups and tumblers. Passmore’s used to buy direct from the Continent. A case of twenty-five good class tumblers could be delivered free to the door at only tenpence a dozen. A comparison indeed . . Goods were fetched and carried in a basket. Then the firm progressed to delivery by horse and cart. It progressed steadily, in fact, until 1911. This was a significant year in the history of the firm. For, its present managing director, Mr. Robert Munden, joined the ent
Sibiu Cathedral (Saint John & Christ)
THE ACTS OF JOHN Saint John the Evagleist is traditionally represented carrying a poisoned chalice and a book – the reason for the book is self-explaining but here is the origin of the reason for the chalice. ACTS OF THE HOLY APOSTLE AND EVANGELIST JOHN THE THEOLOGIAN When Agrippa, whom, on account of his plotting against Peace, they stoned and put to death, was king of the Jews, Vespasian Caesar, coming with a great army, invested Jerusalem; and some prisoners of war he took and slew, others he destroyed by famine in the siege, and most he banished, and at length scattered up and down. And having destroyed the temple, and put the holy vessels on board a ship, he sent them to Rome, to make for himself a temple of peace, and adorned it with the spoils of war. And when Vespasian was dead, his son Domitian, having got possession of the kingdom, along with his other wrongful acts, set himself also to make a persecution against the righteous men. For, having learned that the city was filled with Jews, remembering the orders given by his father about them, he purposed casting them all out of the city of the Romans. And some of the Jews took courage, and gave Domitian a book, in which was written as follows: - O Domitian, Caesar and king of all the world, as many of us as are Jews ask you, as suppliants we beseech of your power not to banish us from your divine and benignant countenance; for we are obedient to you, and the customs, and laws, and practices, and policy, doing wrong in nothing, but being of the same mind with the Romans. But there is a new and strange nation, neither agreeing with other nations nor consenting to the religious observances of the Jews, uncircumcised, inhuman, lawless, subverting whole houses, proclaiming a man as God, all assembling together under a strange name, that of Christian. These men reject God, paying no heed to the Law given by him, and proclaim to be the Son of God a man born of ourselves, Jesus by name, whose parents and brothers and all his family have been connected with the Hebrews; whom on account of his great blasphemy and his wicked fooleries we gave up to the cross. And they add another blasphemous lie to their first one: him that was nailed up and buried, they glorify as having risen from the dead; and, more than this, they falsely assert that he has been taken up by clouds into the heavens. At all this the king, being affected with rage ordered the senate to publish a decree that they should put to death all who confessed themselves to be Christians. Those, then, who were found in the time of his rage, and who reaped the fruit of patience, and were crowned in the triumphant contest against the works of the devil, received the repose of in-corruption. And the fame of the teaching of John was spread abroad in Rome; and it came to the ears of Domitian that there was a certain Hebrew in Ephesus, John by name, who spread a report about the seat of empire of the Romans, saying that it would quickly be rooted out, and that the kingdom of the Romans would be given over to another. And Domitian, troubled by what was said, sent a centurion with soldiers to seize John, and bring him. And having gone to Ephesus, they asked where John lived. And having come up to his gate, they found him standing before the door; and, thinking that he was the porter, they enquired of him where John lived. And he answered and said: I am he. And they, despising his common, and low, and poor appearance, were filled with threats, and said: Tell us the truth. And when he declared again that he was the man they sought, the neighbours moreover bearing witness to it, they said that he was to go with them at once to the king in Rome. And, urging them to take provisions for the journey, he turned and took a few dates, and immediately went forth. And the soldiers, having taken the public conveyances, travelled fast, having seated him in the midst of them. And when they came to the first change, it being the hour of breakfast, they entreated him to be of good courage, and to take bread, and eat with them. And John said: I rejoice in soul indeed, but in the meantime I do not wish to take any food. And they started, and were carried along quickly. And when it was evening they stopped at a certain inn; and as, besides, it was the hour of supper, the centurion and the soldiers being most kindly disposed, entreated John to make use of what was set before them. But he said that he was very tired, and in want of sleep more than any food. And as he did this each day, all the soldiers were struck with amazement, and were afraid in case John should die, and involve them in danger. But the Holy Spirit showed him to them as more cheerful. And on the seventh day, it being the Lord's day, he said to them: Now it is time for me also to partake of food. And having washed his hands and face, he prayed, and brought out the linen cloth, and took one of the dates, and ate it in the sight of a
