Happy New Year 2016

Happy New Year, dear friends & followers of my blog! 🙂

It’s been such a busy start and..I feel it’s going to become an energetic and explosive year.  I haven’t checked the transits/ astrology yet (other than knowing that Mercury just started retrograding 2 days ago, and Jupiter starts retrograde tomorrow and will do so till early May’16).

Will do a proper few blogs on astrology / analysis..but here’s to you all feeling bright, and going out into the world and shining like the Stars ..whose dusts we are made of!

There’s plenty of light left in us!!

Bright Stellar Blessings

ArchAngel Cometh..! (Visionary Art)

ArchAngel Cometh!    Here’s a rather quick bit of graphics I did recently.. (bridge, clouds, Temple Pillars)..  I  decided to add an old art work I did (The Angel).    So.. how many of you believe in Archangels? Do you work magically with them.. such as Raphael, Gabriel, Michael or Uriel? They are called upon to protect the elemental quarters in the `Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram (LBRP). Feel free to share…. Bright Blessings – Mani#

Primordial Sleep (visionary art)

We Wiccans and Witches know these words well..  `Sink Down..Sink Down..  Sink Deeper and more Deep, into Eternal and Primordial Sleep..’  I had a thought few hours ago..and was driven to create this ..

Feel free to share, if it brings you peace and inspiration.  🙂

Doctor Who: The Jesus Incident..and other such musings..!

Time Travellers are often seen meddling with every other religious or historical events.. The most famous of all – The Doctor (Doctor Who) has been seen going in and out of so many events..  Not just historical ones..but many world religious myths and related ideas or names have been used in Dictor Who..   and over the years, I have enjoyed spotting them..   But suddenly..  one day..  it’s all too much!

Deva Loka is not a planet where the snake beast Mara lives..  but it is the `heavenly’ place for Hindus, where Devas live.  Christmas is not a backwater planet..  but an actual festive event.  Barcelona …well, that’s a place in Europe..

Ashta Varada..  well, that sounds awfully like a name from a Hindu myth..  and the first name `Ashta’ actually means the number 8..   (as in `Ashta Luxmi’ refers to 8 Goddess Luxmi’s    just as Dasa means number 10..!

And Incarnations..(Avatars)..   Shall we look to the oldest pagan religion of the East..  Hinduism.. and to the forms Lord Vishnu (protector) has taken ..anything from a giant Fish, Turtle, Wild Boar, Human-Lion hybrid Narasimar, Rama, Krishna and Kalki, Mohin (female) and more..? or the 64 incarnations that Lord Shiva took to appear on Earth to test and greet his devotees?   No one ever went 2000 years back..to the small Crypt where a dead man’s body vanished.. through a stone door seal..   He was seen later ..not the same..but his friends recognised him. Sounds familiar?  Am talking about the Jesus Incident!

So..I got to thinking..  about using some of the Christian mythologies (the don’t have mythologies as such do they? They call it Bible Stories..  written records of what really happened..  not myths!)

I got to thinking ..what of the time travelling Doctor Who was there…2,000 years ago..  when all that crucifixion was taking place..?   It just lends itself so easily..  more so than any other myths …a dead boy..   a closed crypt sealed by a stone door..    dead-man coming back to life..  Won;t it make a classic Doctor Who story?

Why have they not written one..then?

Oh wait.. They don’t want to offend the Christians..  Right…I forgot about that.

That’s okay,,,keep plundering other religious stories, names and concepts..   Those people won;t mind..   Go on..  talk about the trans-dimensional mountain that’s lighter than it looks..and floats down to Mohammed..   show the Bodhi tree ..and the transcendental Light Creatures that merged with Buddha..   Why stop at the savages of Mayas and Aztecs, Marco Polo.. Take a pot shot at Mythras while ya at it too..   Roman Cult meetings with blood of freshly killed Bull pouring down the new initiate in an underground chamber..  That’s got high ratings written all over it..

Have I made my point ?  More importantly..  before you send me fan mail ( or hate mail) have you understood the point I am making? 🙂

Best Wishes

ps.    This story starts with The Meddling Monk.. a renegade Time Lord..   And on the planet Jehruz-al-om,  2,000 yrs ago.., a fixed point in time was tampereded with!  And the Universe has been suffering the consequences ever since.. !    Thankfully, another Time Lord (or Lady) is about to visit that planet.. and that will lead to one thing.. the thing that you and I and the rest of history had thought happened in the first place!!   Do you want to know more..?  :-p

Doctor Who – Art of Mani

If all goes well, a portal will open up at 7.50pm (gmt) and swallow the entire..  No..just kidding. Am going to try something a bit clever..   set up a blog and let it be published at a pre-set time..(cos I;ll be in a Cinema watching the big show tonight!!)   So.. this blog should be coming out…at 7.50pm…gmt..when the `Doctor Who: Day of the Doctor’ premiers all over the world..in many countries…in many cinemas..as well as on their television screens (of course!)

Most of this art works are very old..and faded.. I suppose I could enhance it graphically…Maybe another time..But here are the scans of the original..

These were copied covers off those Target Novelisations..  going back to mid-1980’s when I had arrived in UK..

And here are some slightly better quality pencil art.. portraits of the older Doctors..  

And Finally, here’s a concept illustration (A3) called `The Forfeit’  that shows the 6th Doctor with Valyard..   Notice the Hanged-Man tarot card, the fallen chess piece, the 13 on dice and so on..  🙂 

Enjoy
