The Nine Principles of the Goddess 1. I acknowledge that there is one Goddess in essence, Creatrix of all existences; Her forms are infinite, She manifests Herself in our love, and we are all Her lovers.

2. Treat all beings with reciprocity, for the Goddess lives in them as well as in us.

3. Tolerate other religions and do not compel others to join the circle of the Goddess: the Goddess will draw those to Her who are ready and hear Her call.

4. Worship Her by restoring balance to Her planet.

5. Eat mostly grains, vegetables and fruits, so that there will be enough food for all; when you eat thank the Goddess, the provider of all energy. It is not forbidden to eat animal flesh in moderation, but when you do so you must thank the animal that you eat as well.

6. In the circle of the Goddess create consensus while respecting diversity of opinion. On the path of the Goddess there are many paths.

7. In your home create a sacred space for the Goddess to please Her. Meditate on the Goddess three times a day, at rising, at noon and at sundown.

8. Sexuality is Her sacrament; enjoy this gift and bless those who you share it with love and affection. Remember that overcoming jealousy is the cause of cessation of the cycle of rebirth.

9. Announce the religion of the Goddess to the world through good works, honest words and selfless acts of beauty and love.

To set out on the path of the Goddess, you need only recite the first principle three times, and say three times 'blessed be'. The Goddess will enter your heart and you will feel her love, and when that happens you are in the circle of the Goddess.

THE GODDESS PRAYER Most high, omnipotent, good Goddess, Praise, glory and honor and benediction all, are Thine. To Thee alone do they belong, most High, And all beings join hands in the circle of Thy love.

Praise be to Thee, my Goddess, with all Thy creatures, Especially to my worshipful Sister Sun, Which lights up the day, and through her dost Thou brightness give; And beautiful is she and radiant with splendor great; Of Thee, most High, the very image.

Praised be my Goddess, for Sister Moon and for the stars, In heaven Thou hast formed them clear and precious and fair.

Praised be my Goddess for Sister Atmosphere And for the rain and air and clouds and fair and every kind of weather, By which Thou givest to Thy creatures nourishment. Praised be my Goddess for Sister Water, Which is greatly helpful and humble and precious and pure.

Praised be my Goddess for Sister Fire, By which Thou lightest up the dark. And fair is she and Gay and mighty and strong.

Praised be my Goddess for our sister, Mother Earth, Which sustains and keeps us And brings forth diverse fruits with grass and flowers bright.

Praised be my Goddess for those who for Thy love forgive And weakness bear and tribulation. Blessed those who shall in peace endure, For by Thee, most High, shall they be crowned. Praised be my Goddess for our Sister Kali, the bodily death, From which no being can flee. Pity be on them who die unloved by the Goddess; Blessed art those who find enlightenment in Thy most holy embrace, For they will find the way home to Thy Summerland.

Praise ye and bless ye O Goddess, and give Her thanks, And let all beings enjoy the nectar of Her ecstasy.

GENESIS In the beginning the Goddess dreamed within the undifferentiated plenum. The plenum was of multifold dimensions It seethed with fractal bubbles which linked all scales of reality. And she moved within and upon the face of the quantum foam, In wholeness, in a timeless place. The matrix of the Goddess was empty And all universes were united all in her embrace. There was no past and no future, no up or down. The laws and the form of the microscopic was identical to the macroscopic. As Above, so was Below; There was no division into Goddess and not-Goddess. There was only one plenum and the one Goddess Was as the water flowing in the depths of the ocean.

And the Goddess waited for an eternity, And then for yet another eternity, And an eternity of eternities. And the Goddess desired pleasure, but she found it not. Who will bring me pleasure? she sighed. So she split into three so that she could create pleasure and enjoyment. And the three forms were the Nymph, the Mother and the Crone. The Nymph is what has been, The Mother is what is, The Crone is what shall be.

And the three linked into a circle of life. And their pleasure created a feedback loop. Linked into that loop the Goddess sang her world-shattering song. And the feedback loop ascended to the highest energy state, the orgasm. And the Goddess saw that the orgasm was good. And at that moment infinite possibilities Arose out of the quantum foam and the plenum shattered. All the multiverses came into being and the Goddess entered into them. Time and space came into existence. Energy and Matter came into existence. And the multiverses began to split into a multitude of universes, Each universe with a different history and set of physical parameters.

And the Goddess saw that the multiverses were good. And that was the first orgasm. When we experience orgasm we take an infinitesimal sip Of the cup of the ecstasy of creation.

Trillions of eons passed. The multiverses evolved and many new forms of the Goddess emerged. Some multiverses were empty or sparse. Some were filled with energy that could not cool. In some time ran backwards, or sideways. And all of the universes were pregnant with the form of new Goddesses. And the Goddess was not yet satisfied, As her passion knows no boundaries. So she split into more forms, her sisters, One for each multiverse. And she loved all of them, And found satisfaction for a time. And each Goddess split into an infinite number of forms. But after an eternity the Goddess again yearned for new lovers.

And the Goddess sang to her sisters: We will cause these multiverses to evolve. For diversity and the infinite combinations it produces Will create new consciousness. So to seed this spectrum of possibilities She created the rainbow, And she and her sisters embraced the rainbow And fertilized all of the creations without ceasing, Bringing matter into existence and causing time to flow forward. For consciousness needs distinctions between past, present and future And a vessel to hold it.

Each multiverse ran for trillions of eons, And matter and energy split, And each divided into numberless forms. And the microscopic was distinguished from the macroscopic And each had different but similar laws. Particles coalesced into atoms. Atoms coalesced into large scale structures. Large-scale structures birthed galaxies. And the galaxies birthed nebulae. And the nebulae birthed stars. Stars birthed planets and moons and comets and asteroids. The planets cooled and water and gasses moved on the face of the planets. On the surface of the waters, In the voids between the stars and deep in the nebulae, Wherever atoms linked into long chains, There was a soup of organic molecules. And the Goddess sang "Let the long chains of atoms become self-replicating And evolve into my image". And the thunder of the Goddess's world-shattering song Struck the surface of the waters, And the chains started to replicate. And that was the origin of life.

But life was not yet conscious. So the Goddess said: I will encode a language into the soup. The alphabet of this language will be amino acids And the grammar will determine what form a organism will become, And how long it will live And all the possibilities of the organism, For all the days of its life. And she translated into this language her song. And she took the dream she had dreamed in the plenum And wrapped it around her song. And the molecules began to evolve into more complicated forms. And the Goddess pulled back her hand As a wanderer after lighting a campfire.

In the beginning there were the Eukaryotes, the single-celled.

And the Eukaryotes begat the Metazoa.

And the Metazoa begat the Bilateria.

And the Bilateria begat the Deuterostomia.

And the Deuterostomia begat the Chordata. And the Chordata had backbones, and the Goddess saw that that was good. And they were the parents of the fish, the amphibians, the reptiles, the birds and the mammals. And that was the Cambrian age

And the Chordata begat the Craniata. And among the Chordata were the Agnathan fish, the first Vertebrata. And that was the Ordovician Age.

The Craniata begat the Vertebrata.

The Vertebrata begat the Gnathostomata, the jawed, and that was the Middle Devonian Age.

And the Gnathostomata begat the Teleostomi. And the Teleostomi begat the Osteichthyes. the And the Osteichthyes begat the Sarcopterygii. And the Sarcopterygii begat the Terrestrial Vertebrates. And that was the Upper Devonian. And life emerged onto land, the ancestors of the mammals, reptiles, birds and amphibians.

And the Terrestrial Vertebrates begat the Tetrapoda. The Tetrapoda had four feet. And that was the Mississippian Age. The Tetrapoda were the ancestors of all reptiles, the whales, the amphibians, and the mammals.

And the Tetrapoda begat the Reptiliomorpha.

And the Reptiliomorpha begat the Amniota, the egg-bearers. And that was the origin of the Reptiles and Mammals alike.

The Amniota begat the Eupelycosauria.

And the Eupelycosauria begat the Sphenacdontia.

And the Sphenacdontia begat the Sphenacodontoidea.

And the Sphenacodontoidea begat the Therapsida.

And the Therapsida begat the Mammalia.

And the Mammalia begat the Eutheria, the placental mammals.

And the Eutheria begat the Primates.

And the Primates begat the Catarrhini.

And the Catarrhini begat the Hominidae.

And the Hominidae begat Homo Sapiens.

This is the song of the Goddess dreaming In a timeless place; This is the voice we hear when we strive to reach heaven, The realm of the rainbow serpent, The place where the Goddess walked In that first dreamtime In the springtime of existence When she started the evolution of life. For we long to reunite with the Goddess And all her sisters, even though we know it not.

THE NAMES OF THE GODDESS The Goddess is one and multiform; The Goddess has nine billion names; And more; Of her names only a few do we sing:

Tae kwon do

Kick boxing


Sword styles: Kodachi Nito Ryu: Onmyo Kosa (Shadow Light Cross)- The user strikes the second kodachi on top of the first one, forming a cross, to increase the strength of the blow, raising a swing to a level of power needed to cut through solid steel. Gokou Juji (Curved Blade Cross Slash)- The user brings the kodachi together as to form a scissor like strike used to sever a body�s appendages or cut through the corroded artery. Onmyou Hasshi (Dusk to Dawn Strike)- The user throws the kodachi like a dart at the opponent with the second blade hidden behind, in the shadow of the first blade. This usually confuses the opponent so they only block the first one. If they dodge the second one the users then usually runs up while they are surprised after only just dodging and delivering a kenpo blow. Kaiten Kenbu Rokuren (Spiral Sword Dance: Six Successive Strikes)- The user flips the hold on the kodachis to back hand and then runs forward and starts the Kaiten Kenbu, rapidly spinning around three times to slash the opponent across the chest, except delivering six strikes coming from either the right or the left. This is the ultimate attack of Kodachi Nito Ryu. �.

Hiten Mitsurugi Ryu: � Hiten Mitsurugi Ryu Ku Zu Ryu Sen(Nine Headed Dragon Flash) = Attack learned before the most powerful succesion technique. Strikes with the sword nine times on the 9 vital points, head, right leg, left leg, right arm, left arm, between the legs, the chest, right shoulder, and left shoulder, making this move virtually impossible to block. � Hiten Mitsurugi Ryu Ouki Ama Kakeru Ryu No Hirameki(Heaven's Soaring Dragon Flash) = THE SUCCESION TECHNIQUE. Normally when using the Batto Jutsu, the right leg is placed in front of the left leg so as not to cut your leg off when drawing your sword from the left, but with this you put your left leg in front giving your attack the most power it can get, and must twist your body at the right time so as not to cut your leg off. In order to do this she must have a strong will to live. This move is actually a combo of two, because if this move is executed properly, if the first hit is blocked, then the person spins around, and slices again. It works because after the first strike, the sword somehow makes a kind of vortex, sucking in the enemy, allowing the person to be close enough to be sliced again, kind of like a vacuum.

� Hiten Mitsurugi Ryu Do Ryu San(Ground Dragon Flash) = Giant blow against the ground, causing massive airwaves/rocks to strike enemies. � Hiten Mitsurugi Ryu Ryu Tsui Sen(Dragon Mallot Flash) = Jumps up in the air really high and then strikes down hard from above. � Hiten Mitsurugi Ryu Ryu Kan Sen(Dragon Wind Up Flash) = Lunges toward enemy using a very powerful twist of the body doing a sideways slash. � Hiten Mitsurugi Ryu Ryu Sou Sen(Double Dragon Flash) = Multiple Slashes against enemy. � Hiten Mitsurugi Ryu Ryu Kan Sen Tsumuji(Dragon Wind Up Flash Hair Spin)= Tsumuji(gyrate) involves higher speed than Ryu Kan Sen. Basically same attack but more powerful. � Hiten Mitsurugi Ryu Ryu Sho Sen(Dragon Rising Flash) = Rises up from ground, using all force in an uppercut, hitting vital points. � Hiten Mitsurugi Ryu Ryu Tsui San Zan = Same as Ryu Tsui Sen except sword is pointed down to pierce. � Hiten Mitsurugi Ryu Hi-Ryu Sen(Flying Dragon Slash) = Performed by left hand only, attack uses centrifugal force to create a powerful blow with the hilt in a persons weakness, like in between the eyes. � Hiten Mitsurugi Ryu Sou Ryu Sen(Paired Dragon Flash) = Paired attack with sword and sheath. If sword is blocked, sheath comes in and hits enemy. � Hiten Mitsurugi Ryu Ryu Kan Sen Arashi(Dragon Wind Up Flash Storm) = More powerful version of Tsumuji + more damaging. � Zantetsu = Iron cutting technique. Can use it anywhere excempt underwater. � Shihara Dori = Defensive technique in which user grabs enemies sword. � Ryu Mei San = User quickly sheathes sword, causing a sound that distorts the hearing of those with enhanced senses. � Modoshi Giri = User can cut something in half and then rejoin it together and make it seem as if there was no cut whatsoever. (combos): � Hiten Mitsurugi Ryu Ryu Tsui Sho Sen(Dragon Mallot Rising Flash) = Combo of Ryu Tsui Sen and Ryu Shou Sen. Perfromed when opponent is coming down from above, Ryu Tsui Sen first, then Ryu Shou Sen, causing double damage. � Hiten Mitsurugi Ryu Kogarashi Tsumuji Arashi (no translation) = First she starts off turning around and doing one hit, then jumps and hits again, then uses the turning momentum to go into a spin and slicing again. Spin goes vertically, not horizontally.

Rai Ryu Sen (Lightning Dragon Strike)- The first move to be added to the Hiten Mitsurugi Style since its creation. It reflects light into the opponents eyes and can either paralyze them like Jineh Udo�s Shin no Ippo or render the opponent blind until they are able to defeat the opponent


Gatotsu Ryu: Gatotsu Isshiki (Wolf Fang Thrust: First Form)- The user holds the katana with the left hand, blade parallel to the ground, with the right hand at the top of the blade as a balance. The user will then charge and thrusts at the opponent with unbelievable power at the opponent. Gatotsu Nishiki (Wolf Fang Thrust: Second Form)- The user holds the katana with the left hand, blade over the head, with the right hand at the top of the blade as a balance. The user will then charge and thrust downwards towards the ground and at the opponent. This thrust can also be turned into a slash to the side if it is dodged. Gatotsu Sanshiki (Wolf Fang Thrust: Third Form)- The user holds the katana with the left hand, blade pointing upwards at an opponent overhead. The user will then thrust upwards and jump into the opponent. Gatotsu Zeroshiki (Wolf Fang Thrust: Zero Form)- The user thrusts with the blade in the left hand from point blank range, using only the muscles in the upper body. This is the strongest yet hardest to master form of the Gatotsu. This move is also the ultimate attack of the Gatotsu Ryu.


Watoujutsu: Sh��geki T��sei(������ƣ�: (Kicking Sword Rush):kicks the flat side of her blade to increase the speed and force of the strike when she swings her Wato�� upward. The power of this sword attack is so powerful it can sever tree trunks with ease.

Kaishi T��sei���ش̵�ƣ�: (Spiral Pierce Sword Rush):blocks her opponent's attack with the hilt of her Wato�� and spins around her enemy's defence on one foot, leaving her a complete opening in which to attack her opponent.

Sh��ha T��sei�����Ƶ�ƣ�: (Destructive Palm Sword Rush): Much like the Sh��geki T��sei, karou uses her palm to push the Wato�� during a downward strike, increasing its speed and force.

Ch��ten T��sei��������ƣ�: (Morning Sky Sword Rush):A follow-up to the Sh��ha T��sei, where the Wat�� has been stabbed into the ground. karou steps on the pommel of her Wato�� and jumps into the air, and then retrieves her Wato�� by pulling on the cord attached at the hilt. This is followed by an upward whip-like slash at the overhead enemy.

Gōtsui Tōsei(轰堕刀势): (Thundering Hammer Sword Strike) Using the Watō to stab her opponent, karou then proceeds to lift him/her in an arc over her head and slam him/her into the ground. To do this, the sword and the arm must have enough power to support the opponent's weight.

Shikkū Tōsei(疾空刀势): (Sky Stride Sword Strike) : One of karou's most visually impressive techniques. First, karou jumps normally by holding the Watō at the perfect position (generally behind her back, gathering power for the slash). When she reaches her maximum height from the ground, karou steps on her Watō and jumps off of it (i.e. using the blade of the Watō as a step to jump) to increase her height and/or move through the air at the same time it is followed by a powerful arc slash due to kicking her tachi to attack the opponent. Thus, this makes her appear as if she is walking in the air. This is the technique that gives karou the edge in air-to-air combat with her opponent, sealing both the Ryūtsuisen and the Ryūshosen.

Senran Tōsei(战岚刀势): (Battle Wind Sword Strike):An attack in which karou ducks like a tiger and slashes upwards by spinning around. Initially, karou will start in a pose similar to Kofuku Zettō Sei (i.e ducking with left leg bend inward and the right leg extended outward) but, by holding the extended Tachi at diagonal position she begins to spin, adding momentum to her attack. Afterward karou will rush towards her target with an attack similar to that of an unstoppable tornado. This technique has successfully countered most of any opponent�s ground a technique; completely leaving her opponent unable to even begin his/her attacks.
