Images are vessels. Our Nahua speaking ancestors referred to images of the gods as Ixiptla or Toptli. Ixiptli derives from “skin,” or “rind.” Toptli means “that which covers something.” The gods and their images recognize each other. As like is attracted to like, so the divine forces recognize themselves in their images and fill them with their essence. A statue, a painting, a mask, a dough or amaranth figure, a natural rock formation, or a man dressed as the god, all become receptacles for divine energy, all become Ixitptla, all become god.

Here, an Ixiptla of Cocijo, the Zapotec Teotl of Rain. Because of the intimate relationship between rain and corn, Pitao Cozobi, the Teotl of Maize, appears in his headdress, descending with ears of corn.

Las imágenes son contenedores. Nuestros ancestres ​​que hablan Nahua se refieren a imágenes de los dioses como Ixiptla o Toptli. Ixiptli deriva de “piel” o “corteza”. Toptli significa “aquello que cubre algo”. Los dioses y sus imágenes se reconocen. Como a los semejantes les atraen, las fuerzas divinas se reconocen en sus imágenes y las llenan de su esencia. Una estatua, una pintura, una máscara, una figura de amaranto, una formación de piedra natural o un hombre vestido de dios, todos se convierten en recipientes para la energía divina, todos se convierten en Ixitptla, todos se convierten en dios. Aquí, una Ixiptla de Cocijo, el Teotl Zapoteca de la Lluvia. Debido a la íntima relación entre lluvia y maíz, Pitao Cozobi, el Teotl de Maíz, aparece en su tocado, descendiendo con dos mazorcas de maiz.

So I caught a few minutes of “Mike and Molly” when I was channel surfing. From what I can tell that show suffers from a terrible case of dragging on a joke until it’s not funny anymore. For example, this was an exchange between two police officers:


Officer 1: “Even if the parents are well-meaning, you can’t control what happens with the kid. I’m sure the parents of that guy we arrested today were lovely people who never dreamed that one day their bundle of joy would grow up to rob a liquor store with an ear of corn.”
Officer 2: “He’s real mistake was taking it out of his pocket to fire a warning shot.”


Now that exchange was funny, I actually chuckled. But then it goes on for another couple minutes.


Officer 1: “no, his real mistake was waking up this morning and saying “I’m gonna rob a liquor store with an ear of corn!”
Officer 2: “Yeah. Now banana would make more sense because that’s got a natural pistol grip but an ear of corn? That’s just wasteful.”

And then I think it went on a bit from there. Nothing kills a good joke like dragging it out too long. And I saw several examples of that within about five minutes of watching.
Series Two ~ Lesson Seven

Lesson Seven: Lammas/Lughnassad

Lammas, also known as Lughnassad to some, marks the middle of the summer and the beginning of the harvest season. For those in the Northern hemisphere it is celebrated on the 1st of August, and for those in the Southern hemisphere it is celebrated on the 2nd of February. It is the first of three harvest festivals. During this time the sun’s strength begins to fade, and the plants of Spring begin to wither and drop their fruits and seeds for consumption as well as to ensure future crops.

It is the time when the Sun God, Lugh to the Celts (hence Lughnassad), prepares to make his sacrifice - the bountiful fruits and grains must be harvested for the survival of the people.

Common symbolism is that of rebirth lying beneath the idea of sacrifice. In order to be reborn, the Sun God must first die.

Clay models of pomegranates from the Geometric period in the Archaeological Museum of Brauron.

And a Corinthian plate from the 5th century BCE with an enthroned Demeter (or Persephone) holding a torch, ears of corn and poppy heads. In front of her is an altar on which there is what appears to be a pomegranate. The poppy heads have sometimes also been interpreted as pomegranates. In the National Archaeological Museum at Athens.

Let us rise, and with the shovel that now serves to pile up gold for our masters, let us split their skulls in two, and with the sickle that weakly cuts off ears of corn, let us cut off the heads of the bourgeoisie and the tyrants. And above the smoldering embers of this damned system, let us plant our banner, the banner of the poor, to the cry of Land and Liberty! Let us no longer elevate anyone; let us all rise! Let us no longer hang medals or crosses on the chests of our leaders; if they want to be decorated, let us decorate them with our fists. The hour of justice has arrived, and in place of the ancient cry, the terror of the rich, “Your money or your life!” let us substitute this cry: “Your money and your life!
