Saturday 1st August 2020: Posted in PT Forum on Discussing the Home Story. Possible astrophysical confirmation of the myth.Discussing The Home Story
Just today found the hard copy of an article pertinent to the Home Story and traced it back to the original internet post from 2003:

Saturday 26th July 2020: Memeing the Three Gorges Dam.
Media across the world are endlessly repeating the name “Three Gorges Dam” as if it were a mantra. But what if it actually is?
For a couple of months now I have had this meme/mantra continually playing in my head, and I have been wondering. “What is there about this name that reminds me of something else?” Each time my rigpa brings up that question, the answer is the same: Tripurasundari. This is one of the many names of the Hindu Goddess whose Gnostic correlate is Isis-Sophia. That is “the Virgin of the World” (an hermetic trope for Sophia the Aeonic Mother), represented in the constellation of the VIRGIN.
Here is an edit of a Wikipedia entry on Tripurasundari:
“Tripurasundari is a Hindu goddess and one of the ten Mahavidyas . She is the Shakti or consort of Sadasiva, the Prakriti to his Purusha. Lalita manifests as Goddess Sati, Parvati, Durga, Mahakali and all their incarnations… Lalita Tripura Sundari Devi is considered to be the most potent incarnation of Adi Parashakti, the supreme creative power in the Universe. She, along with Sadasiva is responsible for the ‘five activities’: creation, protection, destruction, concealment of the world in Maya and final liberation.
“According to Shaktism, Tripura Sundari is the foremost of the Mahavidyas and the highest aspect of the Divine Feminine. The Tripura Upanishad places her as the ultimate Shakti (energy, power) of the universe. She is described as the supreme consciousness who instructs the male deities Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva and others. Tripurasundari is said to sit on Sadasiva’s lap in his form as Kāmeśvara, the ‘Lord of Desire’. Tripura Sundari is also the primary goddess associated with the Shakta Tantric tradition known as Sri Vidya.”
Veterans of my work and Gnostic students will hear quite a few bells ringing as they scan that passage. Planetary Tantra incorporates the ten-goddess format of Sri Vidya mysticism. Those ten powers define the oval of the Shakti Cluster, the app for autogenic practices. Sri Vidya means “auspicious wisdom.”
One of thousands of images of Tripurasundari in popular Hindu art. Note that she rides on a lion. We are currently in the first days of a Bhairavi shift.
Tripurasundari means the beautiful one (sundari) of the three (tri) cities (pura). In the system of Sri Vidya (now integral with PT), the “three cities” is a trope for the three cosmic realms to be mastered by mystic devotion to the Goddess: the realms of desire, form, and formlessness.
Each time I hear “three gorges” I also hear “three gorgeous.” When I see “dam” I see damsel, dame, reverential titles to honor a woman. There is also a trace of damn and damnation; “to damn” meaning “to curse.” Also, the literal sense of dam is of course obstruction. The Three Gorges dam is the largest hydroelectric construction on earth, an obstruction to the flow of the sacred river, the Yangtze. What happens when the dam breaks?
Sundari, “the beautiful one,” is also obstructed on this planet by the largest construction of Archontic deceit: Communism. So, when the dam breaks that thrice-gorgeous beauty will finally be unobstructed. I personally have commanded Bhairavi to take out the Three Gorges Dam. No shame about that, at all.
Veterans of PT follow the practice of celestial observation including the cycles of the moon with an emphasis on two moments each month, the perigee and apogee, when it is closest to the earth and when it is most distant, respectively. I have indicated that in the year 2020 there is an extraordinary sequence of perigee hits in the VIRGIN — nine out of the total of fourteen, to be exact. For example, today (as I was completing Episode 9 of FGS .5) there was a perigee hit in 1 Libra ECL 181 at the crown of the VIRGIN’s head. That exact same hit recurs one month later in the same degree.
One of the ongoing thrills of PT is to anticipate such moments and live through them together, wherever we are in the world, knowing that the celestial code in the constellations presents a read-out of human interactivity with the Aeon Sophia. In this practice, you amplify the action of the earth goddess by the attention that you bring to it.
I am sensing that the meme/mantra of “Three Gorges Dam” may be acting like a signal in the collective psyche so that it produces a release even for those who cannot interpret it as I am doing here. The battle in the world today comes to a final showdown with the covid psy op. Ultimately, it is a battle between Beauty and Ugliness. When the dam breaks, the outpouring of beauty may be like nothing the human species has ever seen before. I am resolved on that outcome.
Tripurasundari is known to the Chinese people as Kuan Yin.

Day 1 of Bhairavi Shift 2020
Monday 20th July 2020: Last day of Idris Shift. Upcoming – two successive Bhairavi shifts, the first (D 1: 21 July) with strong undertow of Tantra Mother. The sunset crescent becomes visible in transit from CRAB into LION.
DWW25 Mistress of Fate: DWW 25 Mistress of Fate
Regarding current events in China, veteran Shaktas and others as well will recall reports from all around the world of strange noises coming out of the sky and land, beginning around 2010. Some were spurious, faked, but others were inexplicable and no doubt genuine. There was a spate of such reports at the launch of the GNE, March 2011. The Nav noted at the time how these sounds resembled the groaning of a vessel in high seas.
Compare those reports with this one: go to minute 6: 56 s.
Decide for yourself what this roar sounds like. Also bear in mind that Bhairavi/LION is the telluric frequency known to roar. That constellation pictured as a lion has been represented in Chinese astrology as a great dragon. A relevant trope would be the “Red Dragon” of the Apocalypse.
So why China, why now?
If the Three Gorges Dam collapses — an action to be commanded, if you know how to do it — 400 million people would be affected and inland China would be turned into a vast ocean. Wuhan would be wiped from the face of the earth.
Also worth noting: predictions in Chinese astrology of the fall of the Empire (currently the CCP, set up by Xenosh in the 1930s).
The Gengzi Cycle is the Chinese way of tracking the Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions which happen every 20 years, but only in the same area of the Zodiac every 60 years. The current conjunction is developing as Jupiter and Saturn hover in the Greater Void. It culminates on December 21, 2020 with exact alignment in 2 Aquarius / ECL 302 at the head of the GOATFISH (MahaKali). The last alignment in that series happened at the kickoff of the 1960s.
The solar eclipse at the solstice June 21 traced a path over the region of China where the most severe flooding is happening.
The power of the Earth Mother determines what happens in China next, above and beyond the battleground of the covid psyop. The eclipse cycle does seem to match up with current events, including the collapse of the CCP. The possibility of China turning into a “great ocean” is extremely high. Finally, note that the lunar eclipse of June 6 marks the date of the release of Episode 1 of the Home Story. The catastrophic flooding in China has proceeded and escalated as JLL has been writing these episodes.
Last but not least, the lunar eclipse of July 5 happened exactly when the moon was conjunct the Star Nunki in the ARCHER — corresponding to the release of Episode 5 of the FGS, the Three-Body Solution” and then Intermission. Way back in the GNE (2011-14), the Nav remarked at the puzzling name given to that star in Babylonian sky lore: “The proclamation of the sea.” (Warning, horrific pop-ups on that site.) In Akkadian, the Yoke of the Sea. In fact, China would not become an ocean as such, it would become a vast inland sea. Nunki marks the vane of the arrow drawn by the ARCHER, hence also the hand that controls the thrust and with the eye determines the sight line to the target. All the signs indicate that China is the target of the monumental rage of Bhairavi, a frequency of Gaia-Sophia.
Why would that be so? Well, for one thing China is the locale of the largest infestation of hive-mind zombies on the planet. Communism is the supreme military and ideological tool of the Archontic virus. Figure it.
Tuesday 14th July 2020: The Constellation of the Stork, talk and text, in Course 2 Sophianic Cosmology, presents the discovery of a new constellation that identifies the exact location of the harbor zone, where Sophia landed in the third galactic arm (Home Story Episode 8, forthcoming).
Since Operation Medusa, it appears that events in the atmosphere may be reflecting the operative meme: the severed head of Medusa. Greek versions of the myth recount how blood spurted in streams from the severed neck and dripped from the head. The illustration of this mythological event might be vividly displayed in a unusual widespread occurrence of sprites, as seen in these links.
Monday 13th July 2020: You will find posts previously in Discussing the Home Story under a new topic, Sophia in Ukraine. In the process of moving or copying the existing posts, their order has been jumbled and some may be missing. If so, it was not intended.
Sunday 12th July 2020: CHINA WATCH. Message from the Maine professor to Staff and Visitors. “Since July sixth…” the clip notes. Note that on July 6 the full moon at 14 Capricorn was aligned to the star Nunki in the ARCHER: Babylonian astronomers called Nunki “the proclamation of the sea.” It was in ancient times and is today the key navigational star in PT. It also indicates the aiming action of the ARCHER. At that time the moon was in the “lunar increment” with Saturn and Jupiter converging in the Greater Void. You may have noticed those planets close to the moon. Veterans of the GNE will know exactly what this all implies.
A month earlier, on June 6, the Home Story was released and the Episodes came out successively after that date. The flooding in China actually began at that moment. It has been raining there for “40 days,” a Biblical trope denoting the Flood myth. There is some parallel in timing between the release of the Home Story and what’s happening in China — or is there? I am looking closely at this possibility of concurrence and intend to comment in due time. It concerns the evidence that Sophia responds to what her witnesses do, and may show that the earth is now ready to direct the full rage of natural forces against the enemies of life. Note that Wuhan is at the epicenter of the floods. If the Three Gorges dam breaks, it could take out 40 million people.
Thursday 9th July 2020: Veterans and newcomers are invited to contribute to the new thread in the PT Forum: Discussing the Home Story. Kindly observe the guidelines set out in the first post (from JLL).
ATTENTION: Episode 7 of FGS 1.5, “Divine Defiance,” going out this evening (Madrid time).

May 2020 School Activity now archived to The Menhir’s curriculum units: The Menhir June 2020
Introduction to The Menhir, Continued:
Notifications sent out via the Mailing List to both Members and Subscribers will also inform you of these ongoing activities. This page mirrors those periodic announcements by email and in some cases alerts you to new content, be it talk or text, that gets omitted from the announcements due to the rapidity and fluidity of John’s ongoing efforts to amplify the curricula, refine and reframe the content, and provide clear and “simplific” direction for your studies.
Announcements at the Menhir consistently track progressing content throughout the School and in 16. Planetary Tantra, free to all. It will also signal content on 18. Breaking Nous, and 17. The Terma and the Terton, available to Members only.
The sacred groves where the Mysteries were originally performed were sanctuaries of natural beauty where rocks and mineral formations were carefully observed. There might be a special rock at the boundary of the sanctuary, as there was a “stepping stone” on Infinity Ridge:
There it was a flat stone (barely visible in this photo) on the left at the base of the wild olive standing offside the welcome grove. When you stepped on it you formally entered the ritual space of the Ridge, then proceeding through the gracious arboreal corridor to the Devi Tree. (Sierra del Hacho, Andalucia. Sierra de Libar to the right, northwest)
In many cases, sacred stone markers were erected in the wild sanctuaries. A single standing stone was called a menhir (Brythonic maen, “stone” and hir, “long”). An arresting geomagnetic marker in the force field of the nemeton, the menhir had acoustic properties as well. Touching it, you could hear differently. Sitting in contact with it would deepen the shaman’s reach into the Nagual. It also served as a geodetic marker for placing the local site in the setting of seasonal cycles, aligned to the solstices and equinoxes, the cross-quarter days, and the rising and setting of prominent stars. Hence, it was a multi-purpose tool of orientation.
It is advisable to check the Menhir for orientation on Nemeta from time to time. Below you will find entries listed in reverse chronological order, most recent at top for easy access. This list will grow and morph in the course of each month. At the completion of each month, the activity recorded will be archived in the curriculum panel: “ARCHIVES”
One final word: I do wish to keep Nemeta supplied with occasional fresh input, additional to what it requires of me to maintain the burgeoning structure, the ongoing organization of the Blocks, editing, revision, etc. But I can only do what I can do, and as it pleases me… Time is at premium for me now and I have undertaken a writing project, the consummation of my life’s work and the closing revelation of my mystic journey.
