    Human beings having an absolute free will to choose their moral and spiritual path were taught by Pico della Mirandola. I do not agree with what Pico della Mirandola had taught because human beings do not have absolute free will to choose their moral and spiritual path. Pico della Mirandola once said “therefore, every human being has absolute freedom to choose whatever place in the “great chain of being” he or she may choose.” By saying “great chain of being” Pico della Mirandola is using that to represent the different social classes and where you stand as a human being. There are many reasons why I do not agree with what Pico della Mirandola taught, but at the same time I agree with him in a way. Where your parents are on the “great chain of being” could depend on where you are on the “great chain of being”, at the same time if you want to have a different moral and spiritual path than your parents you can break off from them and pursue whatever moral and spiritual path you want. The placement of your parents on the “great chain of being” could depend on where you are going to be on the “great chain of being”. When you are first born, you have no clue what is going on in the world. You are just a little baby and even when you grow up a little bit, you still are not sure what is going on exactly. When you are young you do not really know what you want your moral and spiritual path to be, this is where your parents come in. As a kid you just go along with your parents moral…

    Gnostic evil and the postmodern In the context of depth psychology, a link between individual experiences, gnosis and the contemporary world becomes self-evident. Therefore, during the course of the twentieth century, numerous movements embrace both esoteric spirituality and everyday encounters in multiple and highly individualised ways, providing a 'creative reinterpretation of traditional esotericism under the impact of modernity' (Hanegraaff 1996, 383). These groups are often embedded in new…

    During my research, it was discovered that the method to deliver hidden messages was not only done by musicians, but writers as well. Some writers were part of an esotericism group, which means these set of people have a special knowledge of coding in their art. Among these esoteric groups of Harlem Renaissance writers, one of the most important of which is James Mercer Langston Hughes. Hughes was American poet, columnist, novelist, playwright, and a social activist. Even more, he was the…

    Baha’u’llah!” has cleansed many a home, and the Protection Prayer revealed by the Bab is quite effective, as is Christ’s “Our Father”.

    Imams, Pir Shahbu’d-din Shah continues are the Manifestation of God. “Thus they, the Saints of God, are the manifest form of God (sūrati zāhirī Khudā).” This belief is not exclusive to the Ismaili Faith. Rather, it is a belief shared by other Muslims of Shī`ī persuasion, apparent from a quote by Imam Ja‘far al-Ṣādiq, cited in The Spirituality of Shī`ī Islam: Belief and Practices, by Mohammad Ali Amir-Moezzi: “By God, we are the Most Beautiful Names of God. No action by a devoted servant is…

    Like many forms of folktales, Fairy tales serve as enduring classics which ubiquitously permeate our culture. “Pans Labyrinth” or “El laberinto del fauno” by Guillermo Del Toro is a profound 2006 cinematic film which idiosyncratically serves as a spiritual successor to the traditional fairy tale genre. A dark and forebodingly twisted fantasy---Pan’s labyrinth is set in a period of history when the fascist Franco regime was in power. The underlying patriarchal society, the prominent illustration…

    comparison to the other three textbooks, barely explains it. This is hard for me to judge. On the one hand, I consider aspect an essential feature of the ancient Greek verb and think that should be taught with the introduction of the verb. On the other hand, I know that when I was a beginning Greek student, I did not pay attention to it. It seems that Hansen & Quinn’s method for teaching Greek is to bombard the students as early and as often as possible with Greek grammar and syntax, yet not…
