Reflections on the Odes of Solomon from our Summer Solstice Ceremony

A painting of King Solomon who the odes are attributed to, but who is very unlikely to be their real author.

Mark and I celebrated the summer solstice yesterday. As we both sat in a circle of trees in the light of the morning sun and did our ceremony, I read a selection of verses from a little known esoteric text called The Odes of Solomon.

There's literally hundreds of instances of people plagiarizing our work and many people using it for their own profit.

Many others have taken his work on astral travel to create astral projection eBooks for sale and paid courses. Mark’s hugely popular courses, which he wrote from bed whilst seriously ill and in pain, were so … [Read more...]

It’s undeniable that we live in a universe of natural laws and of cause and effect. If it wasn’t like this, then how would we learn? But so often, hurting gets into places … [Read more...]
