Pretty cool!

Yes that was pretty cool, and I'd forgotten all about the Fonz cartoon.

I've never been a massive fan of The Smiths/Morrissey, but I heard this song from his forthcoming album the other day and I think it's got a good message: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1rmAi9XmlIo

Morrissey still around, more to watch. I think my daughters are more into Morrissey but they point me to new stuff that turns out I like it.

Re: Percussive Maintenance

Some old "hippie" stuff that I grew up with, and it turns out it's more lovely with age. Enjoy -



Blue - Choriosum (Joni Mitchell, Arr. Malene Rigtrup) A capella


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_%28J … l_album%29

Blue is the fourth studio album by Canadian singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell. Exploring the various facets of relationships from infatuation on "A Case of You" to insecurity on "This Flight Tonight", the songs feature simple accompaniments on piano, guitar and Appalachian dulcimer. The album peaked at number 3 on the UK Albums Chart and number 15 on the Blllboard 200.

Today, Blue is generally regarded by music critics as one of the greatest albums of all time; Mitchell's songwriting and compositions are frequent areas of praise. In January 2000, The New York Times chose Blue as one of the 25 albums that represented "turning points and pinnacles in 20th-century popular music".[9] In 2012, Blue was rated the 30th best album ever made in Rolling Stone's list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time", the highest entry by a female artist.[10] In July 2017, Blue was chosen by NPR as the greatest album of all time made by a woman.[11]

I found this link posted on Montalk's site and ended up listening to all ten audio books. I like Goddard's take on the Bible - that it's not a literal account of actual historical people and events, but instead is a symbolic guide designed to help humanity achieve its full psychological & spiritual potential. I'm not convinced he was entirely right in that respect, but the way he explained the laws of reality manifestation is amongst the best I've come across so far.

Another link from Montalk.net: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=VC-Oc5x1XK0 - related to the above.

Re: Percussive Maintenance

Last night I picked out a couple of random chapters from 'Your Faith is your Fortune' to read pre bed. They were Chapter 11 CHRISTMAS, and Chapter 12 CRUCIFIXION AND RESURRECTION - both of which I found fascinating.

The more of his work I read the more I think he may have been on the money with his view of what the Bible really is. In his Gnosis series, Montalk wrote a chapter on how gnostic wisdom has been preserved throughout the ages by imbedding it within mythology and folklore, etc., and it could be the case, as Goddard believed, that the Bible is another such example of ancient wisdom being disguised as something else.

I'm not convinced there never was a highly evolved human named Jesus who taught spiritual truths to the world, and works such as The Nag Hammadi material seem to confirm there was.

On the other hand, John Lamb Lash paints quite a different picture of Jesus from the standard portrayal, so I sometimes wonder who, if anyone, really knows the crack.
