To center oneself in 'Bibliomancy' is a good way of showing what an important flux or conduit our soul can be in taking all things into consideration rather than just whatrepparttar eyes or ears perceive, andrepparttar 122207 mind or ego often insist isrepparttar 122208 only reality to recent western theology. 'The Book of Answers' gives a short description ofrepparttar 122209 process we think will be helpful for learning to accept your soul does exist and wisdom doesn't always allow itself to be seen.

"How to Userepparttar 122210 Book of Answers 1. Holdrepparttar 122211 closed book in your hand, on your lap, or on a table. 2. Take 10 or 15 seconds to concentrate on your question. Questions should be phrased closed-end, E.G. 'Isrepparttar 122212 job I'm applying forrepparttar 122213 right one?' or 'Should I travel this weekend?' 3. While visualising or speaking your question (one question at a time). Place one hand palm down onrepparttar 122214 book's front cover and STROKE THE EDGE ofrepparttar 122215 pages, back to front. 4. When you senserepparttar 122216 time is right, openrepparttar 122217 book and there will be your answer. 5. Repeatrepparttar 122218 process for as many questions as you have.” (2)

My recommendation is to ask only important questions and make sure you have no other questions in your mind atrepparttar 122219 time. In beginning to read a book it is good to do this and then record what you read and thought aboutrepparttar 122220 contextual idea expressed. When you have readrepparttar 122221 whole book turn back to what your first question was and see if you foundrepparttar 122222 most important part for yourself at that point in time. This will test your effectiveness in centering yourself as well as attuning withrepparttar 122223 knowledge inrepparttar 122224 books you read.

Many methods of intuitive thought are forms of divination. The common way we judge people by body movement and language has been very popular in sales as long as salesmen or saleswomen have been on this earth. Many top corporations ask astrologers to give their input on important decisions once they've narrowed their choices and contemplated their options. It is never a bad thing to have one's mind open to other possibilities and opportunities. However, over-dependence and reliance on such things will turnrepparttar 122225 process into a fear-driven experience that has no freshness or attunement at all, and may lead to negative self-fulfillment. If you are doing Tarot readings for yourself or any one person it is said every two weeks is enough. Bibliomancy answers are different because Tarot integrates many aspects beyond your primary question.

Leonardo Da Vinci

The best part ofrepparttar whole book for me isrepparttar 122206 bicycle. It has a chain drive mechanism that looks like a 19th century model of something he would have seen inrepparttar 122207 future. His representation is not engineered so perfectly that he would have been able to inspect it however. It had no steering mechanism, for example. On top ofrepparttar 122208 original drawing that was discovered long afterrepparttar 122209 death of all parties is a childish drawing of a penis to look like a cat with legs. Still they don't actually use words to say he was 'gay' and we know he would say something about this if he was alive today. It is a certain thing about propaganda - great people become more manageable after they die - you can 'spin' their image to your hearts desire. Inrepparttar 122210 case of Jesus they make him over every century! I guess allrepparttar 122211 priests abusing children across North America andrepparttar 122212 court awards have made them a little sensitive - can you say risk management? Can you say hypocrites? They still exclude 'gays' from all sorts of things and marriage is just one of them. Maybe this isrepparttar 122213 area 'master' Luca was most instructive to Da Vinci?! It is an area of their expertise but what Da Vinci was able to produce, is not.

"While they recognizerepparttar 122214 unmistakable nature of this machine,repparttar 122215 few scholars who have examinedrepparttar 122216 drawing are decidedly reluctant to admit its antiquity. Sincerepparttar 122217 application ofrepparttar 122218 chain-drive goes back only torepparttar 122219 end ofrepparttar 122220 19th century, they propose a dating ofrepparttar 122221 drawing withinrepparttar 122222 early years ofrepparttar 122223 present century. Such a hypothesis, however, collides with insurmountable difficulties: (1) The page in question remained hidden for almost four centuries, and it is unimaginable that 70 or 80 years ago a boy would have obtained fromrepparttar 122224 directorship ofrepparttar 122225 Biblioteca Ambrosianarepparttar 122226 permission to viewrepparttar 122227 codex, detach one or two ofrepparttar 122228 pages, and then draw upon them and glue them back again. (2) Even in that case, he would have drawn a bicycle of a type then existent, not one of wood with wheelbarrow wheels, {And this imaginary childrepparttar 122229 academics try to say drewrepparttar 122230 cat/penis, would have been a pretty smart kid to knowrepparttar 122231 name of Leonardo's pupil/model/lover. There is a small matter of his signature.} no means of steering, andrepparttar 122232 teeth ofrepparttar 122233 central gear so squared off that they could not be fitted torepparttar 122234 chain. (3) The odd toothed wheels andrepparttar 122235 chain coincide exactly with those drawn by Leonardo in Codex Madrid 1, folio 10 recto. (4) We cannot separaterepparttar 122236 bicycle fromrepparttar 122237 other drawings visible in folios 132 verso and 133 verso ofrepparttar 122238 Codex Atlanticus. Actually they were drawn whenrepparttar 122239 pages were united atrepparttar 122240 two halves of one page. Reuniting them, we see that another hand has drawn, also in pencil and from left to right, two pornographic drawings obviously meant as a joke, over which, onrepparttar 122241 right side, is clearly written 'salaj', that is, Salai,repparttar 122242 name of Leonardo's pupil, model and servant...To become a reality,repparttar 122243 idea requiredrepparttar 122244 final solution of some challenging problems such asrepparttar 122245 matter of steering andrepparttar 122246 adaptation ofrepparttar 122247 large squared off teeth with their jutting comers torepparttar 122248 links ofrepparttar 122249 chain… Salai entered Leonardo's house in 1490, aged 10.” (59)

How did Leonardo draw about half ofrepparttar 122250 design of such as bike? The best answer is that he looked intorepparttar 122251 'Philosopher’s Stone' of his patron/alchemist or he developed one of his own like Nostradamus. It is not an easy thing to do, but I think he could have done it. If he actually traveled through time he would have been able to draw a bike and many other things like his famous helicopter. When looking into a 'Stone' there are many confusing images of possible future and jumbled realities. We know that many withinrepparttar 122252 Catholic Church have studied these things (e.g. Aquinas) and that they know aboutrepparttar 122253 'Stone'. In recent times a Catholic cleric developed a Chronovisor in conjunction with top physicists including Enrico Fermi, according to one report I have seen.

We know they would have been very concerned about Leonardo tellingrepparttar 122254 world about many things he knew. The Gnostics were heretics because they said things like: 'The Original Sin that separates us from God is Ignorance!' Who is passing on whether or not you are a heretic because you believe inrepparttar 122255 possibility of a 'Stone' today? Yes, most of society! Few have any idea of what an alchemist is or what contributions they've made to humanity,repparttar 122256 quantum physicists were called 'atom-mysticists' when they spoke ofrepparttar 122257 things chaos science and alchemy has studied for over 13,000 years. This is why we don't need an Inquisition. Becauserepparttar 122258 media and education system is more effective!

The titles and grandiloquent appointments ofrepparttar 122259 egotistical chest-beating ecclesiasts who follow inrepparttar 122260 footsteps ofrepparttar 122261 money- changers whose tables Jesus over-turned inrepparttar 122262 Roman-backed Temples are so fantastic that any impressionable person can easily think THEY must know! This isrepparttar 122263 technique of 'The BIG lie!' If you make an ass of your true self (the soul) by saying you are 'Holy' and an 'Emperor', it is no matter. Just continue to add allrepparttar 122264 nations and states you have under your control. Say you arerepparttar 122265 sole representative of God on earth, and thatrepparttar 122266 universe revolves around you. It might work as well as saying disease comes from 'sins and demons' and 'women arerepparttar 122267 harbingers of THE Original Sin'. Actually any human is able to know what Jesus called 'the living father within'. Are we really out ofrepparttar 122268 influence ofrepparttar 122269 'Dark Ages'? I'd like to debate that withrepparttar 122270 Pope or some other proselyte.
