religion party

anonymous asked:

Did you know that Alex Hirsch said that the twins don't have an official canon religion,so that the fans can imagine the twins being whatever religion one wants them to be?This means we can imagine the twins praying to God together, going to Mass, recieving the Eucharist, battling demons with Holy Water and celebrating Christian holidays! And 16% of people in Piedmont are Catholic so maybe...OH MY GOD WHAT HAVE I DONE??!!! I think I just stumbled upon an amazing fan-art & headcanon idea!!!!!!

Are you asking me about Pines religion headcanons because it sounds like you are okay here goes:

  • Dipper and Mabel Pines: Father Jewish, mother Christian (unspecified). Because of the whole matrilineal descent thing, they won’t be considered Jewish themselves unless they decide to convert, but they’ve nonetheless received religious instruction from their father and it’s a big part of who they are. They’re still figuring things out. You gotta have holy water.
  • Stan Pines: Agnostic, raised Jewish but non-practicing. Stopped asking questions a long time ago.
  • Ford Pines: Raised Jewish, briefly a Cipher-worshipper, now honestly unsure what he believes. Still looking for the answers.
  • Soos Ramirez: Practicing Catholic raised by devout grandmother, dating another Catholic (Melody), goes to Mass every Sunday. Stan came to his confirmation.
So, how to form a group 101.

First, make a reason why people should be in the group.

Second, make a reason why people ARE NOT ALLOWED in the group.


You can see this everywhere. Religion, political parties, gangs, they all have rules that keep people out to make the people inside feel validated.

Some people lose sight of the first step (bringing people together) and concentrate on the second (keeping people away) because they are stupid, or mean, or have low self-esteem and validate their own existence by being mean to others.

This post was prompted by an acephobic jerk saying that the acrynoym was LGBT and not a letter more. 

What we see here is someone who forgot that the community is built so that if you are not in the conventional orientation and identity that society finds acceptable, you can find people who share your plight and find strength in numbers for emotional and political reasons.

But with acephobic, and transphobic, and biphobic discourse, those people push aside the mission of bringing people together and concentrate on keeping people away. You can always see in their blogs or their rhetoric how much effort they put into keeping “that kind” of people away. 

And when your main objective in life is to keep other kids from playing in the sandbox instead of using said sandbox to play, you need to realise that you’re just a bully.

I'm ayano and it makes me extremely uncomfortable to see people call me "Yandere-chan". That's not my name. I have a name in source it's ayano. Actually speaking of sources, I hate my source, i hate the premise, i hate the execution, I hate the word "yandere" in general. It's ableist and gross. I hate everything about this. Strangely enough though, I don't hate being kin with ayano, it's actually one of my happier cannons. I accidentally killed yamada with a bible because he was sinning

Taber 2, 3, 12, and 15?

Can do!! <3

2. What is a notable quote from this character? Alternatively, what is their favorite quote?

Oh man, okay, one of the very first things Taber ever said in-character was “You may speak” (since Nidoran and I were accidentally talking over each other, downsides of playing on Skype). It came off as condescending and snooty at the time, but that didn’t really fit her; I’ve since figured out that she said it like that because she’s used to being spoken to like that

3. Summarize your character’s backstory with no more than three sentences.

A tiefling child born into a human family is kept inside for being a tiefling, but as she’s technically an heir to the family’s name, she’s taught how to be a noble. Her family goes bankrupt, relatives go missing, and a mysterious figure approaches, demanding Taber pay a debt the family owed him. Her closest friend suggested a plan that would last two years, but try as she might, Taber couldn’t wait that long and cut her way to a freedom she had no idea what to do with.

12. What meme would you use to describe the character?

I??? Don’t know??? I’m not a memer but I’ll ask An Expert (@dracktheluck) and get back to you on that

15. Would this character ever make a deal with a devil or dark spirit?

Taber knows that she exists because someone in her line (she suspects her father) made a deal with a demon. Frankly, for that reason, Taber would rather not

I wanted to know more about the victims of today’s horrifying massacre, and since the media’s information wasn’t quite specific enough, I took to Facebook to look for them.

What I found was this playful, innocent status written by a student of Peshawar’s Army Public school. You can just tell how much these kids loved being at school.

Mubeen Shah, the boy at the end, uploaded his cover photo a while back with this quote: “We are a nation of beauty and great grief. Our smiles are much stronger than your guns.”

Mubeen and his other three friends in this picture were all killed by the Taliban today.

And, as much as I want to, I don’t know how to look at these kids and tell them to “Rest in Peace”

Because how can they “Rest in Peace” when every article covering their massacre is riddled by Islamophobic comments?

How can they “Rest in Peace” when they, the victims, are categorized alongside their oppressors?

You do not have to be any particular religion or political party to mourn alongside Pakistan today. Muslim, Christian, Democrat, Republican: it doesn’t matter.
All you have to be is awake.

Right after magic mushrooms

ASTRAL PROJECTION TECHNIQUES

  • Step 1

  • Step 2
  • Step 3
  • Step 4
  • Step 5
  • Step 7

Relax through breathing. That is, exhale all the air from your lungs until there is none left. THEN exhale a little more. There is always a little more than you think since lung are “inflated” and are usually ¼ to ½ full even before we breathe in. Once all the old air is cleaned from your lungs, inhale deeply and then hold it for ½ the time it took you to breath out. You always want to breathe out twice as long to get the old oxygen poor air out of your lungs. There is a reason for this. The new, fresh oxygen when held for several seconds (as long as you possibly can so that it’s not too uncomfortable) results in a kind of high that is similar biologically to the effect of morphine. However, this process does not result in addiction or the overal devastation that drugs cause. In short, it is an effective way to wind down and achieve a relaxed state.

Approach sleep, but do your best not to fall asleep. Scientists and hypnosis experts refer to this state as the Hypnagogic state. As soon as you notice memories, thoughts, conversations, images, etc that you did not intend to focus on or think of, then you have acheived this state. Relax and proceed to the next step.

Allow your body to continue to relax beyond this point until you start to notice Phosphogenes. Phosphogenes are strange images on the backs of your eyelids. It almost looks like a strange, dimly lit fireworks show on the inside of your lids. Watch them casually until they cease and you start to lose the sensation of your limbs. This sensory numbness marks the beginning of your body’s transference from the physical plane to the planes that surround our world.

Enter a state of Vibration. This is the most important part of the technique, and also the most vague. Many projectors have noted these vibrations at the onset of projection. They can be experienced as a mild tingling, or as is electricity is being shot through the body. It may actually be the astral body trying to leave the physical one. Some techniques for entering into the vibrational state include completing the folloing tasks. Some should be performed before you begin your relation session:

Remove as much stimuli from your body as possible: Jewelry and clothing (especially tight).

Limit light in the room. The less the better, but do not remove all light. You may fall asleep.

Make sure the room is warm enough, but not too warm. If you need a blanket, make sure it is not rough or too heavy.

Make sure you will be alone, free from visitors, roommates and ringing phones.

Lie with your head pointing North and your feet pointing South.

Breath through your nose. This is hard for some, but do your best.

Begin your relaxation session.

Once you have past the point where you can see Phosphogenes, repeat the following words to yourself mentally: “I will see. I will hear. I will feel. I will move. I will remember.” Slowly recite this passage 5 times. Each time you recite this passage to yourself, you should be completing an inhalation and an exhalation.

Finally, we arrive at the difficult part. Imagine the sensation of something vibrating against your feet. Do NOT simply imagine something moving against your feet. If you can’t imagine the sensation of vibration, then find some electrical device such as a massager or other appliance that gives off a vibrating sensation when you touch it. Once you know what to imagine, work hard to imagine that sensation against your feet. Start with your toes and move upward throughout your entire body. Your head and face will be the most difficult. You may not achieve this right away. So be patient. Once you have clearly imagined this sensation, you are ready to move on to the next step.

Mastering the vibrational state means being able to quickly and effortlessly imagining vibrational sensations throughout your entire body at will. Next you should be able to produce a wave effect by beginning the vibration in your feet (and later beginning in your head) and pushing it to the other side of your body. You need to be able to control this without effort. The more you practice, the better you will get.

Next, allow yourself the luxury of imagining that your are projecting astrally. Most people avoid this last crucial step because they think it means they are pretending. It doesn’t. Many hypnotists have managed to control subjects who thought they could not be hypnotised simply by asking the subject to “pretend” to be hypnotised. The hypnotist would simply instruct the person to act as though they were hypnotised by appearing relaxed and following cues the hypnotist gave them. Within minutes, these people who thought they were immune from hypnosis were barking like dogs and dancing around the room…all without realizing they were hypnotised. This phenomenon is well documented and validated by readings of the subjects’ blood pressure, heart rate and brain wave activity. The same principles can be applied to astral projection. Once you are ready and have completed all the above steps, work on imagining that you are traveling. Imagine, moving around the room, around the entire building. Travel beyond the building to other geopgraphic locations. Even envision traveling to other times. Remember, that this is an unfamiliar state for you. Your mind will likely take any evidence (even that which you do not consciously notice) that you are projecting as a warning that it needs to bounce back home in a hurry. Remember how many times you’ve dreamth amazing dreams only to suddenly realize you were dreaming and lose the thread of the dream. This happens because our minds are trying to protect us from stumbling into unfamiliar waters where we may not be able to escape. Give yourself time. You will find yourself escaping from your mortal shell before you know it. That’s when you’ll truly see that the sky is not the limit. It is just the beginning.
