Eagerly Awaited Novel by William Hearth Ponders Secret Alchemy of Mary Magdalene

WILLIAM HEARTH’S MUCH ANTICIPATED NOVEL TO DEBUT THIS SPRING (2011)

Historical romance inferring scandalous romantic links between Mary Magdalene and Judas Iscariot, heralds arrival of Volume II in William Hearth’s series of fearless historical scholarship. Did their lives represent defiance of rabbinical law? What if these well-known historical figures, tempted by fate to become lovers, were actually vegetarians; linked by dietary practice to the religious and cultural traditions proffered by Pythagoras, Buddhism and Ahimsa?Such knowledge would demand from us a more conscientious approach to life. Read now, the insidiously artful “Secret Alchemy of Mary Magdalene Revealed “Part A” and be ready when “Part B” is released this Christmas. Much anticipated “Novel” arrives in spring 2011.

Hearth speculates, “At a time when ancient vegetarian philosophies clashed with the Judaic-temple practice of slaughtering innocent animals for blood sacrifice…” one question in particular begs an answer: “What if these star-crossed lovers, were actually vegetarians? Their Way of Life and dietary practices would have caused them to be labeled as heretics and outcasts throughout Judean society as being Blasphemous… A crime punishable by death,” whereas these days, such knowledge might elicit a more conscious, enlightened Way of Life.

Mary Magdalene's Pink Lotus DAKINI Durga Durgee

Mary Magdalene's Pink Lotus DAKINI Durga Durgee

William Hearth’s most recent book reminds us that we all have the opportunity to reconsider our preconceived notions regarding the historical characters, who all figured so prominently in christian theology; individuals such as Mary Magdalene, Judas Iscariot and Saul (Paul) of Tarsus

William Hearth’s works discuss how “recorded-history” can be, and most often is, written and rewritten, time and again, depending on the prevailing mindset of those in power, during any given period in “realtime-history.”  So-called “politically correct” views are written into, and out of, recorded history on a daily basis… (eg. reference Mary Magdalene’s exoteric and esoteric popularity; past, present and future).

ORMUS ~ The Secret Alchemy of Mary Magdalene Revealed Part [A]
…is more of a macrocosmic view of the “rethink” of the Levantine Jesus Period and the ancient history that leads up to that unique period of history 8,000 B.C. ~ 500A.D. and later the 1400~1500’s. Did women read books in those days: circa 20BC~40AD? Were aristocratic women educated; and in any manner considered to be erudite individuals?

ORMUS ~ The Secret Alchemy of Mary Magdalene Revealed Part [B]
…promises a more intimate look at how Mary Magdalene and her constituency, [including Judas Iscariot (of the Sicarii)] might have lived on a day to day basis… and touches largely upon the Ebionites’ (Ebyonim‘s -> Evyonim) connection with both the Hindu Ahimsa & Buddhist philosophies [of 400B.C. and earlier] as well as the ISIS / Goddess sects (of the Egyptians and Babylonians…) The non-violent lifestyle of vegans and vegetarians would certainly have clashed with the Orthodox Judaic temple practices of offering blood sacrifices (of innocent animals). Hence connections are made [in Part B, primarily (and part A as well)] to ancient and modern concerns of living lightly on the Earth, whilst attempting to maintain good relations with one’s neighbors on all sides.

Part B~ also includes an expose on more specific chemical methods and formulae of acquiring and producing ORMUS according to ancient formulae and techniques.

The Secret Alchemy of Mary Magdalene: The NOVEL
The upcoming NOVEL  (proposed debut late spring of 2011) is an historical romance based on the foundational research accumulated during the production of Parts A & B;

It is a NOVEL
…wherein, the intimate potential and various possibilities that would have been inherent in the lifestyles of individuals such as Mary Magdalene, Judas Iscariot (of the Sicarii) and other Financial Sponsors of the Ebionite Movement are explored in exquisite detail.

Who are the Essenes really; the Ebyonim or Ebionites?

Mary Magdalene & Judas Iscariot's ancient future

Mary Magdalene & Judas Iscariot's Ancient Future: The Many Spiritual Descendants of Mary Magdalene

Who are the Essenes really?
Are they the Ebyonim (Ebionites)?

They certainly would have been trying their best to be of service to the Ebyonim (Ebionites), but they very likely were not “The Ebyonim,” per se.

The immediate following reference and paragraphs are based on the writings of the Roman Pliny the Elder (died c. 79 A.D.) in his Natural History (N’H,V,XV).
However, nany other refrences and hypothesis follow.

Pliny, relates in a few lines that thepossess no money, and had existed for thousands of generations and (quite erroneously) that Essenes do not marry (for in fact they did and do today celebrate life passionately; and as such they happily produced many healthy vegetarian children). Unlike Philo, who did not mention any particular geographical location of the Essenes other than the whole land of Israel, Pliny places them in the Ein Gedi ares, in near proximity to the Dead Sea.

A little later Josephus gave a detailed account of the Essenes in The Jewish War (c. 75 A.D.) with a shorter description in Antiquities of the Jews (c. 94 A.D.) and The Life of Flavius Josephus (c. 97 A.D.). Claiming first hand knowledge, he lists the Essenoi as one of the three sects of Jewish philosophy[6] alongside the Pharisees and the Sadducees. He relates the same information concerning piety, celibacy, the absence of personal property and of money, the belief in communality and commitment to a strict observance of the Sabbath. He further adds that the Essenes ritually immersed in water every morning, ate together after prayer, devoted themselves to charity and benevolence, forbade the expression of anger, studied the books of the elders, preserved secrets, and were very mindful of the names of the angels kept in their sacred writings.

Campaign of terror & character assassination targeted Mary Magdalene & Judas Iscariot “Sicarii”

 

Revisiting the histories of Judas Iscariot and Mary Magdalene

Revisiting the histories of Judas Iscariot and Mary Magdalene. Was Judas Iscariot (Sicarii) framed by Paul (Saul) of Tarsus? Did Paul (Saul) of Tarsus "demonize" Mary Magdalene?

QUESTIONS THAT MERIT INVESTIGATION

Did Mary Magdalene act as wife to the man whom we today incorrectly refer to as Jesus the Christ and was she a mentor to Judas Iscariot (of the Sicarii); Moreover, was Judas Iscariot actually the most devoted, loyal and trusted disciple of Jesus?

Was Mary Magdalene a well-respected leader among the early Jesus movement: Was she THE Migdal-Eder i.e. “Tower of the Flock”? Was she one of THE principal Leaders? If there was no Catholic Church during their lifetime, then why would Mary Magdalene and Judas Iscariot (Sicarii) have been considered heretics and by whom?

Did Judas really betray Jesus and Mary, or did Saul (Paul) of Tarsus and other detractors of Mary Magdalene, frame Judas Iscariot and deceive Peter?

Did Saul (Paul) of Tarsus (and later, his following) wage a campaign of terror and character assassination against Mary Magdalene and Judas Iscariot (Sicarii) and their descendents, Read more of this post

“Magnificent at so many levels!” 5 star pioneer ratings!


ORMUS ~ The Secret Alchemy of Mary Magdalene Revealed Part [A] is a collection of excerpts from the foundational research supporting the greatly anticipated novel from newly acclaimed author William Hearth.

Focusing on events that lead up to the advent of the Jesus Movement in the Levant,  Hearth’s upcoming historical romance promises to be both highly entertaining and informative. The points of view, although drawn from timelines commonly accepted in orthodox religious circles, present a new and refreshing set of possibilities and hope for a generation born into a world filled with pollution, concerns of human injustice, endangered species and a world on the brink of complete environmental meltdown.

Heart makes the point that History is contrived at best. And Mary Magdalene’s history was not immune to corruption, as it has also been rewritten, time and again, to suit the whims and private agendas of countless despot rulers, both during her lifetime as well as centuries after her tenure in the Levant. Even today authors offer unruly and absurd assumptions concerning her history and person.

Judas Iscariot a Vegetarian? “Eating is a Political Act!”

In honor of  Mary Magdalene and her constituency’s attempt to spread the message of ahimsa, William Hearth has completed a 40 Day vegan juice fast. In preparation for attempting a 120~366 day micro-nutrient and ocean-water fast, Hearth attempts to prove that humans can live lightly on this planet, while remaining healthy and virulent even when they have past the age of 50. William Hearth is on day 42 [Oct 15, 2010] of a VEGAN juice fast (eating only plant-based liquids).

“My Goal you ask? My goal is to help people to understand that environmental activism began over 2,000 years ago, and not during our 20th century generation, as many are inclined to believe,” say William Hearth, author of ORMUS ~ The Secret Alchemy of Mary Magdalene Revealed, “The Jesus Movement, including Mary Magdalene and her constituents’ message, bespoke a world in which the Way of Peace, or ahimsa, would be the norm, rather than the exception. Deforestation began thousands of year ago, with the building of countless fortresses, war-ships, and other tools of war, most of which were used to destroy neighboring cultures and civilizations.”

Hearth goes on to say that, “People consume much more than they actually need and continue to waste resources needlessly on a daily basis, minute by minute.”

“Without a fundamental change in the way we live our lives on a day to day basis, there is little chance of the human race surviving into the 22nd Century, let alone into the year 2050.”

“It has been correctly observed that ‘shopping is a political act” and I would now like to point out that ‘eating is a political act’ in a very real and tangible sense…”

Significant facts were literally written-out of history!

“When we, as open-minded, independent thinkers, finally muster the courage to question authority, and act upon that decision, the need to perform alternative research will indubitably arise…”                        ~William Hearth

“We will find ourselves amazed at how certain aspects of history are simply ignored by all mainstream encyclopedias, dictionaries and textbooks; each country, nation-state and its corporatist regime, force-feeding the global population various versions of history as they see fit~ i.e. the version that supports that ruling party’s current private agenda; whereas all the names, places, words and ideas of major significance are being literally written in & out of history on a daily basis.”              ~William Hearth

“We will discover that all ideologies and thought processes other than the homogenized package of “pasteurized” thought, touted by mainstream religion and orthodox academia, has been carefully disposed of.”            ~William Hearth

Water Water Everywhere, and not a drop to drink!

Blog Action Day 2010: Water

Right now, almost a billion people on the planet don’t have access to clean, safe drinking water. That’s one in eight of us.

 

Unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation cause 80% of diseases and kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Children are especially vulnerable, as their bodies aren’t strong enough to fight diarrhea, dysentery and other illnesses. The UN predicts that one tenth of the global disease burden can be prevented simply by improving water supply and sanitation.

But, water moves beyond just a human rights issue. It’s an environmental issue, an animal welfare issue, a sustainability issue. Water is a global issue, deserving a global conversation.

  • A Human Right: In July, to address the water crisis, the United Nations declared access to clean water and sanitation a human right over. But we are far from implementing solutions to secure basic access to safe drinking water. More Info »
  • 40 Billion Hours: African women walk over 40 billion hours each year carrying cisterns weighing up to 18 kilograms to gather water, which is usually still not safe to drink. More Info »
  • 38,000 Children a Week: Every week, nearly 38,000 children under the age of 5 die from unsafe drinking water and unhygienic living conditions. More Info »
  • Wars Over Water: Many scholars attribute the conflict in Darfur at least in part to lack of access to water. A report commissioned by the UN found that in the 21st century, water scarcity will become one of the leading causes of conflict in Africa. More Info »
  • Cell Phones vs. Toilets: Today, 2.5 billion people lack access to toilets, but many more have access to a cell phone. More Info »
  • Food Footprint: It takes 24 liters of water to produce one hamburger. That means it would take over 19.9 billion liters of water to make just one hamburger for every person in Europe. More Info »
  • Technology Footprint: The shiny new iPhone in your pocket requires half a liter of water to charge. That may not seem like much, but with over 80 million active iPhones in the world, that’s 40 million liters to charge those alone. More Info »
  • Fashion Footprint: That cotton t-shirt you’re wearing right now took 1,514 liters of water to produce, and your jeans required an extra 6,813 liters. More Info »
  • Bottled Water Footprint: The US, Mexico and China lead the world in bottled water consumption, with people in the US drinking an average of 200 bottles of water per person each year. Over 17 million barrels of oil are needed to manufacture those water bottles, 86 percent of which will never be recycled. More Info »
  • Waste Overflow: Every day, 2 million tons of human waste are disposed of in water sources. This not only negatively impacts the environment but also harms the health of surrounding communities.More Info »
  • Polluted Oceans: Death and disease caused by polluted coastal waters costs the global economy $12.8 billion a year. More Info »
  • Uninhabitable Rivers: Today, 40% of America’s rivers and 46% of America’s lakes are too polluted for fishing, swimming, or aquatic life.More Info »
  • Building Wells: Organizations like Water.org and charity: water are leading the charge in bringing fresh water to communities in the developing world. More Info »
  • Technology for Good: Do you want to measure how much water it took to make your favorite foods? There’s an app for that. More Info »
  • Conservation Starts at Home: The average person uses 465 liters of water per day. Find out how much you use and challenge your readers to do that same. More Info »
  • Keeping Rivers Clean: We can all take small steps to help keep pollution out of our rivers and streams, like correctly disposing of household wastes. More Info »
  • Drop the Bottle: Communities around the world are taking steps to reduce water bottle waste by eliminating bottled water. More Info »
  • Water, Sanitation and Hygiene in Schools: Students in developing countries lose 443 million school days each year due to diseases associated with the lack of water, sanitation and hygiene. Repeated episodes of diarrhea and worm infestations diminish a child’s ability to learn and impair cognitive development. More Info »

 

 

Vitamin B12 for Vegans Confirmed

Viable Vitamin B12 for Vegans available for centuries as common component of Japanese daily diet ~ Shiitake Mushroom

Consider this: Do mushrooms require B12? Why would mushrooms adsorb and absorb the B12? Is this an accident of Nature;  or ~ is DNA much more intelligent than we realize?


In AUSTRALIA ~ University of Western Sydney completed ground-breaking research on the B12 content of button mushrooms.

In JAPAN ~ According to Dr. Kanichi Mori, Shiitake mushrooms have more vitamin B12 than milk and fish.

Brief:Certain types of Mushrooms are unique in that they contain Vitamin B12, something that vegetables can’t produce at all.  Since B12 is mainly of animal origin, deficiency is commonly associated with vegetarian diets.  Mushrooms were found to contain 0.32-0.65 mg per gram of B12, allowing just 3 g of fresh mushrooms to provide the RDA of this vitamin.  Vegetarians may find this a useful way of getting this important nutrient. ~ more at http://www.polymathium.com ~ This is possibly due to a subtle, potential symbiotic relationship that occurs between the three parties involved… humans, mushrooms, and B12 producing bacterium.

Fasting on Fruit Juice ~ Day 31

I’ve been a vegan-vegetarian for over 40 years and this year I’m performing a juice fast. I’ve been consuming approx. 90% fruit juice and 10% vegetable juice for over 4 weeks now. But I’ve only just begun! I’m aiming for 90~120 days at least.

 

 

~ Polymathius ~ A Compassionate Man of Ahimsa

~ Polymathius ~ A Compassionate Man of Ahimsa

 

Today, (Day 31:) I enter into the 2nd month of fasting on liquids. I am fasting as an act of gratitude; to acknowledge the bounty and blessings that Gaia, our Mother Earth bestows upon us, moment to moment; and to remind others that we all share a common responsibility to give back to our Mother The Earth and our Natural Environment.

 

Sustainability requires more than political activism. Sustainability begins at home and at the office, in our factories and our places of worship.

Day 31: I feel alert and energized. I sleep well and wake up early, refreshed and looking forward to a new day. I’ve been consuming 90% fruit juice and 10% vegetable juice for over 4 weeks now.
