Thanksgiving, a special mindset

Built in the middle ages

This was at the close of another difficult century in Europe. The continent was beginning to re-emerge from losses as a result of the Crusades. By this time all over Western Europe up to Cordoba and beyond, the middle class was now re-establishing itself. Emperors were still licking their wounds, great halls of learning were just beginning to open their doors to pupils. And these were Institutions which would go on to pronounce laws and orders for a rapidly changing European  continent. Indeed this was an age of intellectualism. But the Eastern knowledge, such as Aristotelian and Platonism were now gaining ground, too, as a force for good on the continent. And although the Byzantine empire was weakened, Christianity and Christendom would go on to gain huge followings.

Medieval Europe, Germany

Just a few block away, under the shadow of the castle of a mighty emperor lived a farmer, his wife,  his sons and daughters. They were poor. It’s Thanksgiving and they have just gathered for the Thanksgiving dinner. But earlier  that day, his wife, a hardworking woman and mother of his children, has gone to work to prepare a wild turkey dish, using the family’s favorite spaces like; ground black pepper, rosemary,  dried sage, some garlic powder and much more to bake the turkey. Then the food was ready. The children who were now grinning with anticipation could no longer mask their impatience. Let’s bow in prayer, the poor father finally announced. They were mostly a happy family.

Cordoba, Spain.

Meanwhile, in the nearby Castle, the great Emperor has been pacing up and down through the long corridor. All day the great man has been deep in thought about questions and dangers surrounding his sovereignty. But the Emperor has also forgotten it’s Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving from the Visiblehelpers, on this Christian Holiday.

The Virtue of Jewish Culture

Jewish Women 2


The debate between Nicholas of Autrecourt and his friend, on whether it is possible to ever achieve certain knowledge, is something I have considered. But coming to the defense of an ancient people has never been an easy task, and yet, it’s no heroic task. Still-  I will try. And my apology to historians—for wanting to discuss this humble profession for being the wise fool which can only point fingers at evidence, but never talks.

Looking at the ancient Hebrew culture through the heart, and having had some uncommon acquaintance with the nature of some of their secret writings, It then becomes hard to put down that noble race solely on the basis of past records which suggest that Jewish women were treated more like slaves.  The problem with this idea is that, when it comes to ancient history, nothing can be more unreliable than it, and perhaps this is true because it’s very difficult to try to weave together accurately what has happened many centuries back.  Painting past Jewish societies as full of men who were cruel to women, is indeed very much troublesome.  Perhaps the perception that men had of women in ancient times, could have been something much more patriarchal, or more fatherly, so that at the end of the day,  instead of being something negative, it became for them more of a love affair than of a bunch of wicked men who enjoyed taking swings at their wives.

Only few other nations on the face of the Earth, in those days  that could’ve had a strong enough religious culture just as good as compared to that of the Hebrew culture, — where submission to divine will, ruled the day. For example, Jewish holy men, who were actually Visible Helpers, in the truest sense of the word, could do anything that God asked them to do—no questions asked.Jewish Life

The ancient Greeks knew this, and with all their knowledge, and with all their philosophies, they were still no equal to the mysterious nature of the Hebrews. And by historicizing Greek’s achievements for all it’s worth, will do no better.  Hebrew women were amongst the most submissive of women in those days. And because of this, they were able to bring joy and happiness into their household. And it was there alone that the Lord chose to find a mother for himself. The women of Islam also exemplify this subservient lifestyle, a religion which by the way, is a derivative of both Judaism and Christianity.

Perhaps one might say that religious life in ancient Israel was one dominated by Temple visits and daily religious rites and ceremonies, and all of these were “men only jobs.” Therefore, it was just necessary for the men and not for the women who actually handled the harder tasks, which helped their men stayed focussed, as they performed Temple duties in order to bring God’s blessing to their households. In this sense then, it was bliss—not bondage, for the ancient women of Israel.
