“And now let us begin this journey, a journey of brotherhood in love, of mutual trust. Let us always pray for one another. Let us pray for the whole world that there might be a great sense of brotherhood.” Pope Francis I
Pope Francis Begins Pontificate
Leading Faithful in Prayer
Vatican City, March 13, 2013
Pope Francis’ first moments as the 267th Successor of St. Peter were characterized by prayer. He arrived to the central balcony of St. Peter’s at 8:22 local time, gazing upon the cheering crowds for two minutes before calling out, “Good evening!”
During his 12 minutes on the balcony, he led the faithful in praying an Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be for Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI.
Before leaving the balcony just after 8:30 local time, he told the faithful he wanted to ask for the intercession of Our Lady.

God is a principle,
not a human law
The message of Jesus is not the Jesuit message of ‘serving the pope’ and his human rules. On the contrary, Jesus explicitly denies people the right to call themselves ‘pope’ ‘rabbi’ or ‘imam’.
No one has the right to hinder people in making contact with all those principles that as a whole can give us an image of God.
“Don’t let anyone call you ‘Rabbi,’ for you have only one teacher, and all of you are equal as brothers and sisters. And don’t address anyone here on earth as ‘Father,’ for only God in heaven is your spiritual Father. And don’t let anyone call you ‘Teacher,’… The greatest among you must be a servant. Those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted. (Matthew 23)
The Father-Mother-Pinciple is an age old principle that is brought to us by Sumerian and Babylonian astrology.
The Bible mentions the Mother-Goddess worship when the hebrew people fell into apostasy. Judges 2:13, “They forsook the LORD, and served Baal and Ashtaroth.” They turned their backs on the true God of heaven to worship Ashtaroth or Ashtoreth which was also called “the queen of heaven.” In Jeremiah 44:17-19. Jeremiah is rebuking them for worshipping her, but they rebelled against his warning…
Baal = Saturn, The Father, ruler of Capricorn
Ashtaroth = The Moon, The Mother, ruler of Cancer
Capricorn and Cancer are the Parental Signs
Everyone’s got parents
Soul Food Astrology
Part of being human is having two people who combined forces to give us birth.
Astrologically, parental qualities are represented by the signs of Cancer and Capricorn. Both Cancer and Capricorn people like to encourage, protect, and conserve the good qualities they find in their children and in people around them.
Cancer represents the archetypal “mother” characteristics of the zodiac. Cancer people are caring, emotional and good listeners. They have a natural ability to provide nurturing attention. They are often able to anticipate other people’s needs, and use this ability to support or manipulate others, depending on their motivations. They often provide an unconditional, altruistic type of love, in which we are loved simply for being who we are.
As the natural opposition to the sign of Cancer, Capricorn represents the archetypal “father” characteristics of the zodiac. Capricorn people like to take charge and give practical advice. They often hold executive positions in business, or have leadership roles in their communities. They are typically loyal, stable and dignified, and have a natural ability to provide rules and guidelines by which others can achieve and grow. They provide a conditional kind of love, in which we are rewarded for what we do.
We can grow (spiritually) by developing the positive qualities of Cancer and Capricorn within ourselves. These qualities may include self-nurturing, self-discipline, ambition, comfort with emotions and a conservational attitude toward things that are worthy of preservation.

Justin Bieber: Let it be
Gylne Tider: Let it be
When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be
A “Let it be” Philosophy
Utilitarianism is mainly characterized by two elements: happiness and consequentialism. Utilitarian happiness is the biggest happiness which (supposetly) every human being looks for. In utilitarianism everything useful to happiness is good.
The criterion of good and evil is balanced between individual’s happiness and the happiness of the community, “each counting in an equal way”.
Utilitarianism joins a very long tradition of thought which goes back, to China, from Mo-Tseu for example, and in Greek philosophy, from, essentially, Aristotle and Epicurus… It seems to take a bigger importance in the 18th and 19th centuries, with the beginning of modern society and the end of the feudalism. …
In 1683, during a meeting between Colbert (1619-1683) and a group of French traders managed by a certain Legendre, who, when Colbert asked the traders what the French State could do to help them, he answered this:
Let it be, such should be the motto of every public power, ever since the world is civilized …
This need of freedom keeps pace with an increasing individualism (Capricorn-Saturn-Father) which cannot exist without a certain altruism (Cancer-Moon-Mother).
