The governments ofrepparttar world make their money from our poor health, debt, and struggle to “just get by.” Liberation comes with knowledge.

Now, because ofrepparttar 141910 great demand inrepparttar 141911 desire to live abundantly, some Success

Philosophers and Psychologists have capitalized on this demand. Instead of providing teachings and trainings in Abundance, they now offer books, tapes, lectures, and workshops on .Behavioral Economics. While this subject has helped a few people who are in debt and earn about $100,000 annually, it is not inclusive of everyone. Behavioral

Economics are for people who have a substantial income but can’t seem to manage their money.

Abundance Training is much more empowering. It is about enrichingrepparttar 141912 whole-self.

You are not affected byrepparttar 141913 conditions ofrepparttar 141914 economy or limited because you don’t already earn a 6 figure salary. Your ability to increase your wealth, live in abundance, and have financial freedom is based on your understanding of Universal, Cosmic, and Spiritual Laws that governrepparttar 141915 “flow “of wealth, success, love, devotion, financial freedom, and optimal health. Abundance Training teaches you how to operate in divine flow of this energy.

Wealth, money, success, love, health it is all energy. Once you know how to operate inrepparttar 141916 flow of that energy, you haverepparttar 141917 ability turnrepparttar 141918 unmanifested intorepparttar 141919 manifested. You can access intelligence of substance as it works to bring our true desires to fruition.

Not only wasrepparttar female consortrepparttar 141858 same,repparttar 141859 various nations usedrepparttar 141860 same cult objects,repparttar 141861 same types if incense altars made of stone and clay,repparttar 141862 same bronze and clay censers, cult stands and incense burners,repparttar 141863 same chalices and goblets andrepparttar 141864 same bronze and ivory rods adorned with pomegranates. It was easy to take cult vessels of one deity and place them inrepparttar 141865 service of another one--and this was commonly done. For example, inrepparttar 141866 ninth-century B.C.E., stela erected by Mesha,repparttar 141867 king of Moab, he describes himself asrepparttar 141868 'son of Chemosh,' and tells how he defeatedrepparttar 141869 Israelites (see also 2 Kings 3:4-27). He then brags,'(I) took t(he ves)sels of Yahweh, and I hauled them beforerepparttar 141870 face of Chemosh.'

We sometimes getrepparttar 141871 impression that after Solomon builtrepparttar 141872 Temple in Jerusalem, Yahweh had no other sanctuary in ancient Israel -- but this is notrepparttar 141873 case." (1)

It is possible thatrepparttar 141874 prevalence ofrepparttar 141875 'one god' was actually a one goddess as we see inrepparttar 141876 fact they all worshipped one similarly named(identical really)goddess. The reality as we see it was almostrepparttar 141877 same for Ba'al in this period as well. He goes on to show these multiple and pantheistic practices seem to disappear whenrepparttar 141878 exiles are returned from Persia, so maybe Cyrus and Zoroaster were able to convince them ofrepparttar 141879 error of their ways and we might see what many have pondered in regards torepparttar 141880 magi of Zoroaster being a major influence on Christianity inrepparttar 141881 original foundations and notrepparttar 141882 more ritualistic Moses. At Qumran many scholars noterepparttar 141883 people called themselves 'Covenanters ofrepparttar 141884 Law'. Most of them note this law was Mosaic but my perception is different and I believe it was a syncretism akin to Gnosticism and with many adept understandings such asrepparttar 141885 healing practices ofrepparttar 141886 Therapeutae. Golb makes it clear he is onrepparttar 141887 side ofrepparttar 141888 Qumran library having been a collection of allrepparttar 141889 factions of religion and practices in a large area even beyond Judaea. The Roman practice of destroying all literature and writing new ones around old beliefs which were in line with their approaches wasrepparttar 141890 reason for this, and all tribes, zealots or cults knew it.

The henges ofrepparttar 141891 Emerald Isles which were once wood as some are seeing today, are inrepparttar 141892 Negev and Sinai deserts as well. The 'Bedouin' ('tent dweller') fiction is notrepparttar 141893 root as we showed fromrepparttar 141894 scholars ofrepparttar 141895 excellent book Carthage. The article followingrepparttar 141896 one just quoted from Biblical Archaeology Review says this:

"Take even a one- or two-day trip throughrepparttar 141897 Sinai or Negev deserts and you'll come across scores of them--standing stones erected in a variety of combinations. These stone installations may help us understandrepparttar 141898 very origins of Israelite religion.” (2)

Last yearrepparttar 141899 word about pre-hieroglyphic alphabets inrepparttar 141900 Sahara were accompanied by more onrepparttar 141901 agricultural savannah people who had henges too. This is whererepparttar 141902 Berbers were from andrepparttar 141903 connection if no simple chance occurrence. The article goes on to discuss 'fertility triads' and whenever you see triad or troad (Greek) you are looking atrepparttar 141904 central laws ofrepparttar 141905 philosophic Kelts. These parables of process and moral or spiritual concepts are a wealth of insight to this very day. The Triune Nature of Man that was plagiarized intorepparttar 141906 'Holy Trinity' and raised to a deity took more of man's self awareness and divinity away from humanity than any of us can imagine. A central theme inrepparttar 141907 Dead Sea Scrolls is said to be very Zoroastrian in nature (andrepparttar 141908 Mani attempt to join Christianity and it in one ecumenical religion that Augustine was a promoter of until bought out byrepparttar 141909 Catholics); - it is simply this: 'There are two spirits 'truth and error'. We surely seerepparttar 141910 real original sin ofrepparttar 141911 Gnostics who savedrepparttar 141912 Dag Hammadi Scrolls and gave their lives protectingrepparttar 141913 Library of Alexandria in this. These people who were withrepparttar 141914 Cathars a millennium later say 'The original sin that separates us from God - is IGNORANCE!'

Another culture that really worshipped this goddess at one time isrepparttar 141915 Greek or Hellenic culture of Dionysius and Aphrodite as we see a practice that was at work while Yahweh becamerepparttar 141916 one and sole male god Jehovah and that development was not mentioned in BAR.

"In Cyprus it appears that before marriage all women were formerly obliged by custom to prostitute themselves to strangers atrepparttar 141917 sanctuary ofrepparttar 141918 goddess, whether she went byrepparttar 141919 name of Aphrodite, Astarte, or what not. Similar customs prevailed in many parts of Western Asia.” (3)

Casting aspersions on great thinkers like Augustine is easy and I don't want any readers to think I'm saying these things without basis in fact. We have his own book to work with in that regard. Here is a little from Augustine’s autobiography called Confessions.

"As literature,repparttar 141920 Scriptures compared poorly withrepparttar 141921 polished prose of Cicero and he thought them fit only forrepparttar 141922 simple minded." That was when he was a Manichean before "the mercy of God had saved him from this evil.” (4)
