Diamonds, Holy Roman Antiques – Charlemagne, Good King Wenceslas, Modern Europe

Diamonds, Holy Roman Antiques – Charlemagne, Good King Wenceslas, Modern Europe

Good King Wenceslas was a diamond of a human being indeed, in the short time he enjoyed the throne of Bohemia. He shared his new Christian joy with his people, and his desire to have Bohemia join with the new Holy Roman Empire of Charlemagne and become a part of a renewed, larger border free Europe. This in 912.


However, his mother who was still a pagan was not amused. She saw the pagan ways special to Bohemia for many centuries as having to give in to a larger central government far away near Brussels today- do you hear that irony in the historic wind?- led by the great new convert to Christian beliefs and education, Charlemagne.


Gone would be the local ways and customs and giving in to a central authority was not for our ways. So Wenceslas banished his mother from the kingdom, her allies brought forward his pagan brother Boleslav, by most accounts a violent fool, who began to make impossible demands of new King Wenceslas. He wanted a stone castle on low ground at the confluence of two rivers: even the King lived in a wooden castle in 912.


Soon, most cowardly by Boleslav and his men in front of a church door, Wenceslas was cut dead. The pagans had won, and Bohemia stayed ignorant and outside the civilization that Christian monks brought to all around.


So much so that the beloved grandmother of young Prince Wenceslas, St. Ludmila, who had been strangled by Wenceslas’ own pagan mother, and Wenceslas himself were adored and enshrined in the hearts and souls of the good people of Bohemia. Within a century converts of good King Wenceslas dared to come forth.


Soon the pagans lost control of the ceremonies, and most of all the hearts of the people. Saint Ludmila and her grand son Good King Wenceslas were very good indeed, and when they looked down on the feast of Stephen, every where he looked around the frost was deep and even.


And as empires lift and fade after great men die too soon, the mists of time blended over this first greater out of the dark ages attempts to bring about a border less market free Europe. It has been a way from 912 to today, and there have been some terrible bumps and off ramp crashes, but here we are.


Well done, great visionaries. Burn in Hell, Boleslav. God and St. Peter willing, I hope to see you inside Heaven at Christmas, Wenceslas: can they arrange frost that crunches deep and crisp and even? We will see. But the question what if reamins in front of us so open to vision.


What if Wenceslav had not turned his back on the treacherous brother and his thugs, and believe his hand on the church door would stop them from killing him?


What if Charlemagne had been aware of the treachery in the court of his dear new friend Wenceslas and sent soldiers of Christ to prevent these pagans from allowing Europe to spread east as it has only managed now.


That was 912, and today in 2008 we can say it is a good thing, long overdue, could have saved hundred of millions of lives in wars, but seems to be happening now.A diamond of an idea, so long overdue.

Gnosticweb: Bringing Ancient Gnosis to the Modern World

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 22, 2005

Years ago the disciples were brutally stoned and crucified after trying to spread the teachings of their Master, Jesus. In the 13th Century the Roman Church set out to exterminate the Cathars and Knights Templar in the infamous Holy Inquisition. Yet despite the horrific persecutions that sought to completely wipe the Gnostics off the face of the earth, their teachings survived and today the popularity of Gnosis is now soaring – its international success culminating at the groundbreaking, new website www.gnosticweb.com which went live on the 10th April 2005.

Gnosticweb’s release signals a radical change in the way the ancient Gnostic teachings are now reaching the world, with over 28,000 students having already taken the free courses at the sister site Mysticweb. Gnosticweb, however, is being released as the site for modern Gnosis – presenting the ancient Gnostic teachings, which have long been encoded in the parables and ancient style of the Bible and Nag Hammadi Library, in a modern way. Here at Gnosticweb this information is taught plainly. It is here that esoteric knowledge has gone public.

Celebrities, historians, philosophers, theoligans, anthropologists, the media and the public are starting to talk about Gnosis, with the uncovering of the mysterious new revelations, sayings of Jesus and gospels brought to the world with the discovery of the Nag Hammadi Library, to the recent blockbusters on screen and international bestseller lists. The release of controversial new information on the Gnostics that has been hidden for over 1,500 years, has many re-questioning their spiritual beliefs and long-held views on the life of Jesus, the disciples and groups like the Essenes and Cathars.

Today the spiritual school Gnosticweb and its website, is powered by the internationally renowned spiritual teacher and author Belzebuub whose books and courses that teach Gnosis to the contemporary seeker, have launched Gnosis into the spotlight. 2000 years on Belzebuub is still teaching the often scandalised assertion that all humans beings have the ability to directly experience the divine. And this is why Gnosis, or knowledge, is still alive and fresh as ever. People are continually re-discovering for themselves the Gnosis taught by Jesus and his apostles, once thought to be lost to the pages of history – spread now at Gnosticweb using the technologies of the modern age.

Jason, a Gnosticweb teacher says, “Receiving the information on the courses was like finding an oasis after walking through the desert”.

“People come to the courses from all walks of life,” he continues. “It’s a privilege to pass on this vital information to those who are interested, just like it was given to me. Gnosis is wonderful and I’m glad I can share it with others.”

Gnosticweb is a non-profit organization. For more information on modern Gnosis, our new website and our free courses visit www.gnosticweb.com .
