Two paths open up before us. A globalised New World Order A world controlled by increasingly sophisticated technology linking us up to a centralised data base, put in place and validated by an international legal system.
Or one based on a recognition of invisible web of energy that connects all creation
Make no mistake. Although both systems aim for interconnection, one leads to freedom the other to enslavement. The way to tell them apart is to ask a simple question. Which protects the supremacy of the individual spirit to decide what is right ? And which is imposed upon us by an external authority? And most important of all – which path is has a heart beating at it’s centre and which an algorithim ?
We have to sharpen up,because our dreams of a unified world is being hijacked, subverted and fed back to us as the hideous doppelgänger of quasi liberal ideology. . The artificial program of collectivisim is just one such example, but there are others. People will move towards recognition of their common identity in their own time and in their own way-and not be sucked into a social programming agenda designed to rob us of our national identity, our connection to our ancestral roots, and to make us feel like criminals for loving the land that gave us birth. ( Excerpt from main article published in strayngefayce.wordpress.com
I wrote this a few years ago . Thought it would make a good follow up to my Satan post.
This is my personal exploration into why the Christian story continues to exert such a magnetic pull on so many hearts and minds -including my own. Christianity like so many other religions can be sen as nothing more than a myth created by our yearning to bring meaning to an infinitely mysterious universe.
Perhaps there’s no such thing as objective truth and that all so called truths are constructs of our limited minds.But myth contains a kind of mythical truth and this is mine.
The ancient book of the I Ching describes the universe as comprising of two great cosmic forces eternally swirling in at out of existence, each giving way to the other. Another way of imagining this exchange is to imagine two opposing poles which energy flows between like an alternating current.Yet another analogy is of the Universe breathing in and outlike some sentinent being . The Buddha peered into the heart of the continuing flux and saw that nothing is permanent and found enlightenment. This is a beautiful image but for me it is Christ the Redeemer that holds centre stage in my psyche.Then there is the Goddess mythology which is close to my pagan heart, but even the power of the Goddess cannot dim the light of Christ the Redeemer .
One of the features that attracts me to the Christian story is it’s humanity.. The symbolism of Christs birth in a stable surrounded by animals touches our hearts. We connect human to human . The awesome mystery of life recedes and we are comforted..
As a child I was deeply affected by Christs message of love and forgiveness. ( even though I found it impossible to live up to!) “ The greatest law is love” he said. He also told us to refrain from judgement.” He who is without sin cast the first stone ” And importantly to believe in our own power.” The Kingdom of God lies within“. When performing his miracles he assured us we had the same powers inherent within us.” This that I do know you also shall do” For reasons I will give later I believe the meaning of Christs message is only now beginning to be understood.
The glaring fault of Christianity ( as taught by the church)is the absence of the balancing presence of the dark pole of nature. This creates a split between spirit and matter which expresses in so many damaging ways. This being so why haven’t I purged this one sided expression of patriarchy as thoroughly as I have the absurdities of my Catholic childhood? Why does the numinous figure of Christ the Redeemer continue to haunt my imagination?
To be continued ——-
“Leave me out of it!”
I don’t know about anyone else but I’m suffering from a bad case of “Satanic Overload. The current reports all over the internet about child abuse are so grotesque that it seems only one word is appropriate to describe them – Satanic!
But I’m wary of using this name – it has the kind of lip licking salacious glamour so beloved by the tabloid press And not just the tabloids, much of the alternative media seem addicted to this description in their reports of the wide spread child abuse rings “allegedly” used by people of power and privilege.
Obviously it goes without saying that the endemic abuse of children must be exposed and stopped and the perpetrators brought to justice to get the punishment they deserve (Hung drawn and quartered preferably) It’s just that don’t think these aberrations of nature can be accurately described as Satanic. And I’ll tell you why.
I see the Dark and Terrible Satan as a manifestation of the fear of nature that arose after the time of the “Fall” when we stepped out of the dream like participation with the natural world and experienced it for the first time as something separate.. Perhaps this had to happen as we journeyed towards consciousness. I don’t know.
It’s at this stage that the biblical Satan appears (as does the feminine serpent ) but there is no doubt in my mind that these accounts are a distortion of the “real” Satan who I see as an expression of the masculine vitality enlivening the natural world. This is life in all it’s raw power, wild and animalistic, experienced through the senses, unfettered and unrestrained by self consciousness.
The Celtic depiction this energy is the mythical Cerrunus, half man half goat dancing with cloven hooves to the mad sweet music of the elements. He is guided not by thought, but by instinct and a heightened awareness of the language of the earth – her vibrations, her seasons and cycles, her musky scents. To be this close to nature means you cannot step outside her laws. And importantly,you cannot control her.
This is why I say that that Paedophilia is not Satanic. It is a perversion of nature. Animals for example never sexually violate their young. It is a terrible sickness afflicting those who have lost their connection to the earth and to her laws.
I go along with Anton La Vey, author of The Satanic Bible when he says Satan has been cruelly maligned by false and hypercritical Christian morality. I had faint stirrings of Catholic guilt when I first opened this book, not quite knowing what to expect.
I needn’t have worried. La Veys account of the Horned One is melodramatic, overblown and frankly absurd. And very funny. Take this passage for example-spoken by “Satan”- which rants against phony morality: ”I blast out the ghastly contents of hypercritically whited sepulchres and laugh with mirthful wrath!”.As you see understatement is not one of La Veys defining characteristics.
And in the Chapter on Satanic Sex he confounds all expectations by waxing positively moral!: “Satanism does not advocate rape, child molestation, defilement of animals, or the participation by the innocent or naive who could be easily intimidated or misguided in doing something against their wishes”. Got that? Satanism does not advocate child molestation.
In fact La Vey pours scorn on the obsession that modern society has with sex, saying sexual energy is just one expression of our natural vitality – there are others, which if repressed leads to depression and a sense of meaningless (Described so evocatively in TS Eliots ‘The Waste Land’) The other effect of stemmed libidinous energy is that it is forced into unnatural channels.
He’s got a point. And although it doesn’t excuse the powerful people who abuse children, I’d put money on them having gone through a loveless childhood redolent with repressed or perverted libidinous energy. Just look at the Royals or the Bush family for example
On further reading La Vey comes across as a kind of modern urban (megalomaniac) pagan, reacting against the phoney Christian morality that still lingered in the sixties when the Satanic Bible was being written – when the cultural revolution had just begun it’s overturning of the old stultifying order.
The aspect of La Veys world view that I find totally repellent is his sub Nietzschean exaltation of the strong, who he believes are the natural inheritors of the Earth. This of course evolved from Darwins survival of the fittest theory-which eventually was picked up by Hitler. The rest you know.
That being said la Vey does provide an interesting perspective on the duality of our animal/spiritual duality.
La Vey along with Nietzsche and Hitler despised Christianity which he says sucks the vitality out of life. They believed it was inimical to natural biology and responsible for the enfeeblement and oppression of all those affected by it. And when viewed from the perspective of all the indigenous cultures decimated by so called Christianity there’s not much to argue with.
Except – just as the loathsome figure we know and fear today is not the ‘Real’ Satan, so the phoney type of Christianity reviled by La Vey does not represent the ‘Real’ Christ.
Now just for the sake of brevity lets not get bogged down in all those arguments about whether Christ was an historical figure or not, and agree that just like Satan, he is an archetype. No one thinks Satan is a real goat like figure prancing about. Equally it’s not necessary to think of the Christ as someone dressed in white with a halo around his head.
Now this is the point where I have to admit that I don’t feel comfortable with La Veys bombastic Satan. He’s been useful in pointing out the hypocrisy and double standards that’s unfairly relegated him as the source of all evil, and he’s given me a good laugh. But in the end he’s too one sided, self important-and he lacks heart. And I don’t go along with his rejection of the true Christian virtues of love,compassion and humility either
Instead I see Satan and Christ as the two inseperable aspects of our human nature. Satan represents the dynamism of Earth and of the natural world which vivifies our physical beings; and Christ represents our spiritual potential. All Satan and no Christ is not possible at this stage in the growth of human consciousness . And all Christ without Satan is not possible while we remain in physical form. Nature and Spirit. Spirit and Nature. Can’t have one without the other. And it’s time we accepted that fact.
A young friend recently gave me album to listen to with the delightful title “Cradle of Filth”. I found the music unbearable but some of the lyrics were wonderful in an adolescent gothy way. One track ‘The Forest Whispers My Name “depicts the age old conflict between the energies of Christ and of the Natural world.
“The forest beckons with her nocturnal call
To pull me close’mid the baying of wolves
Where the bindings of Christ are down-trodden with scorn
In the dark, odoriferous earth”
But why should it be that a belief in Christ bars us from connecting to “The dark odoriferous ? Earth” Why has this split between nature and spirit occurred.? And-the big question.: Can it be healed? .
I shall be tackling this conundrum in my next post. In the meantime,give the Guy with the Horns.a break! Stop nailing all the man made evils of the world onto him, and admit that life without Satan life would be very insipid affair indeed.
Trump is the creation of the Liberal elite.
There is a scientific law that says: For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
I’m writing this soon after Trump was voted in by millions of America people to be their next President This coming not long after the Brits voted leave the European Union. And now I’ve just this minute heard Italy has also voted to quit the EU
Of course the general consensus among the liberal left is that anyone who voted for Brexit or Trump must be some kind of psychopathic Nazi..
But surely it would be far more useful to ask just why vast numbers of people are rejecting the liberal/left agenda and turning to the right.
How about they are mostly people at the lower end of society who have been rendered redundant and systematically ignored, marginalised, and swept aside by the march of globalisation with it’s army of colonising multinationals?
How about they are sick of not being allowed to question unrestricted immigration when they see how this creates a fearful cheap and disenfranchised work force which pushes them to the bottom of the queue?
How about they feel their culture, traditions and identity are given no respect as they are subsumed into a globalist collective identity? And that even to dare voice their disquiet about this puts them in danger of being prosecuted under one of the draconian pieces of legislation that limits free speech – Europe’s Incitement to Racial Hatred Act and Americas Patriot Act? (To name just two.)
How about they are sickened by the carnage being enacted in the Middle East by wars they did not vote for? Which has created the tragic refugee situation that impacts upon the poorest in our society who are forced to share their limited resources with the overflow of desperate migrants who’ve been bombed out of their homes?
How about the impotant anger they feel when all the above is imposed upon them by the false doctrine of phoney liberalism? Which purports to be advocating a unified planet in which all racial and cultural distinctions are blended into a harmonious global identity? But in fact is fascism cunningly disguised?
How about are rebelling against a social engineering agenda that cynically hijacked the genuine urge for planetary cooperation which arose after the first world war. and subverted that vision into it’s hideous doppelgänger-a centralised collectivist world order where the voice of the individual counts as nothing?
How about they do not want to be ‘harmonised’ into a faceless mass, subject to the authority of one world police force. ‘Defended’ by a one world army. Bled dry by a one world tax system with a one world micro chipped currency. All controlled by a one world government comprising not of our elected representatives but by the international banking cartel whose command of the money supply allows them to shape word events through debt enslavement?
How about they see the absolute farce of environmental laws, purportedly to limit carbon emissions and stem climate change, while the carbon dependent armament and aviation industries are allowed to proliferate without limits.? And the green light given to ground polluting fracking-amongst countless other blatant environmental violations? Not to mention the Secret Space program eating up trillions of our taxes which nobody was consulted over-ditto Weather Modification Technology such as HARP
Then after you have considered all that, then perhaps you can begin to understand the desperation that forced ordinary people to vote for someone as unpalatable as Trump – who promises to reverse the globalist agenda and to give jobs to the American people and not to some foreign faceless cheap work force. Some one who despite his hideous behavioural traits, at least doesn’t speak hypercritical garbage about pretending to save the environment and stopping climate change? The same with Nigel Garage of U Kip in Britain who although not the kind of person I’d hang out with, has behaved with courage by standing up to the dangers of a federalised Europe
The more sinister aspect of this swing away from the Liberal.Left is demonstrated by the disquieting rise of the. Far Right The irony of this is that any group that gathers around an agreed ideology chanting slogans and sporting symbols of their collective identity have forfeited their autonomy and are in just as much danger of being ruled by an external authority as the people they see as being in polar opposition to them.
But as I said at the beginning. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Push people too far one way and this is what you get.
Perhaps as it has been suggested the division of Right and Left and the threat of violent conflict that could be it’s consequence, has been deliberately engineered. As good old David Ike has been saying for years: it’s the tried and tested Problem, Reaction, Solution tactic .
Create the Problem. Wait for the inevitable Reaction. Then having created the right conditions – move in with the Solution. In this case the mobilisation of a globally centralised police force to restore order.
However all the above is not inevitable. Although I do recognise the power of the global elite to impose their programme upon us, I also go along with psychologist Carl Jung who says the invisible forces of the human psyche are the prime creators of our destiny.
Almost magically, these invisible forces rise up bringing with them unexpected developments. Take the internet for example and the emergence of renegades like Julian Assuage, Chelsea Manning and and Edward Snowdon.. Plus the thousands of ordinary people using the net to offer an alternative interpretation to the official line we’re pedalled by mainstream media channels .
In the end I am comforted by humanity’s instinct for truth. And by it’s capacity for compassion-and yes-love. The enormous change in attitudes towards our fellow humans is demonstrated by our growing rejection of war. No longer do we regard people of far-off lands as somehow not capable of suffering as we do. Now when we see a Syrian father weeping in despair as his children cling to him in a leaky boat, we realise that could be any of us.
Finally, some words from my all time hero Carl Gustav Jung, from his book The Undiscovered Self, where he passionately advocates the role of the individual over collectivism
“I am neither spurred on by excessive optimism nor in love with high ideals, but am merely concerned with the fate of the individual human being – that infinitesimal unit on whom the world depends And in whom,if we read the meaning of the Christian message aright,even God seeks his goal.”
A new world is now within our reach, hovering in the ethers of pre-manifestation, created by our our yearnings our visions our prayers our struggling and our suffering.
Or there’s this
Which will you choose?
Although this article is not intended to be an in depth analysis of the tangled web of deceit, double dealings, two faced hypocrisy, Machiavellian machinations and downright evil of the global elite who control our political systems, the surrealistic tragi/comedy of the American elections has pushed my credulity past the critical point.
I’m writing this just before the elections results are announced and although Trump speaks out against Globalisation, I just can’t put my faith in a man of such low moral calibre, who holds women and the feminine principle in general in deep contempt And as for Clinton, well she is a deeply evil person, a murderer a liar and a sexual pervert. So which way it goes I don’t see either of these people contributing to the kind of world I envision.
What interesting times we live in. This is a situation like never before Epic. Legendary. And despite everything I feel great anticipation and optimism for the future. As the saying goes-watch this space and hold onto your hats. It’s going to be an exciting ride!
This is a time of opportunity. Enough of us now are awakening to the tricks played on us to keep us in ignorance so a few super powerful interests can hold onto their privilege and their wealth. The main one being divide and rule. The current hate and fear inducing ploy being Isis, but there have been many many others.
Now that are moving beyond their reach and refusing to fall into their old traps. This has set the usurpers of our planet into a frenzy, causing them to intensify their forces of deception in a desperate bid to deflect us from our course.
But we must not be diverted from our path. A new world is now within our reach, hovering in the ethers of pre-manifestation, created by our our yearnings our visions our prayers our struggling and our suffering
Because they see their power slipping away they have intensified their assault on our minds in a desperate attempt to cloud our judgement. They are masters of deception and the weapons they use are psychological. Their favourite tactic which they’ve refined to a point of sublime cunning, is to hijack our best ideals and twist them so’s they become the opposite of what they seem. This is the danger that confronts us at this time.
Every time the people begin to awake, our controllers resort to these tactics. The first decade of 20th century was a time of enormous creativity. It was a time of awakening. People were pushing against the narrow band of excepted knowledge. The newly discovered world of quantum physics was opening strange and exciting vistas into the world of science. The arts were alive with depictions of life unfettered by obsolete customs, creeds and political thought. It was the time when the common man began asserting his individuality and when women fought for equality
All this was brought to an end by the first world war.
The call to arms effectively reactivated the old conditioning, causing a return to the old values of unquestioning patriotism and mindless obedience to the ruling classes. Countless millions sacrificed their lives for a lie and a fraud.
Twenty years later the same con trick was played, only this one had an added ingredient The world economy was deliberately manipulated causing the great depression which stirred up revolutionary forces – right against left, fascism against communism – as it was meant to. Adolph Hitler was called in as a decoy, presenting the global puppet masters with justification for another period of carnage-whose sole purpose was to protect the interests of the ruling classes and their bankers.
The second world war culminated in the dropping of two hydrogen bombs onto Nagasaki and Hiroshima killing yet more millions of innocent citizens. This act of evil was meant to finally demonstrate the absolute control of the elite.
Then just as it seemed as if the final stage in their plan for world domination was about to succeed – something very strange and wonderful happened
In the sixth decade of the last century the invisible forces of the universe came to our aid, sending an infinitely more powerful cosmic time bomb, whose magnitude created a protective shield to all who recognised its presence. It broke through and shattered the programming which had locked us into illusion. Dormant evolutionary forces were set into motion, awakening us to an awareness of our true destiny.
Since then the world has been undergoing a transformation where distinctions between race, gender and even species are narrowing. People are drawing together in recognition of their common humanity. Along with this is a growing distaste for war and other forms of exploitation
Now Two paths open up before us. A globalised New World Order controlled by increasingly sophisticated technology linking us up to a centralised data base. Put into place and validated by an international legal system. Or one based on a recognition of invisible web of energy that connects all creation
Make no mistake. Although both systems aim for interconnection, one leads to freedom the other to enslavement. The way to tell them apart is to ask a simple question. Which protects the supremacy of the individual spirit to decide what is right. And which is imposed upon us by an external authority? And most important of all – which path has a heart and which does not?
We have to sharpen up,because our dreams of a unified world is being hijacked, subverted and fed back to us as the hideous doppelgänger of quasi liberal ideology. . The artificial program of multiculturalism is just one such example, but there are others. People will move towards recognition of their common identity in their own time and in their own way-and not be sucked into a social programming agenda designed to rob us of our national identity, our connection to our ancestral roots, and to make us feel like criminals for loving the land that gave us birth.
But as the burgeoning alternative media shows – we’ve had enough. We’ve seen through their mind control games and looked deep into our hearts and brought our vision for a united world into focus – and are telling the mind controllers and their quasi liberal NWO fascist agenda to FUCK OFF.
I wrote this when Lou Reed died. I just thought his music expressed shades of light and dark like no one else. In that he was unique.
Lou Reed was cursed by fate to be a catalyst for immense cultural changes.All artists are cursed, but those using the voracious rock world for their message are doubly cursed.Triply cursed were those born into that strange time after the world’s first nuclear explosion which tore apart all life’s certainties as it tore apart the fabric of the planet.
These unfortunate souls were given the task of preparing the coming generations for the profound psycho/ genetic changes that were now necessary for our survival. All change starts in the mind – we dream new realities into manifestation. The artist’s role is to help us dream.Lou Reed was one such; his particular role being to trigger a recognition of the genetic evolution which was to blur the strict division between male and female sexuality – leading us into an androgynous future.He didn’t know that – just as Bob Dylan and all those other legendary rock artists didn’t know the significance of the transformative role they were playing. They were just doing what they had to do according to who they were.
Discoveries in quantum field physics are revealing that biology is not confined by inviolable laws. Nature and human consciousness are intertwined–if we believe that, then we recognise ourselves as co – creators in the unfolding evolution of life .Biological patterns which dictate that sex is strictly for procreation are changing. While of course children will always be welcomed into the world, men and women are recognising that passing on their genes is no longer the entire point of being alive. Sexual energy can be utilised for other creative purposes.
Lou Reed gave a voice to the outsiders who were the forerunners of these changes – – who inhabited the shadowy world of sexual ambiguity, and who paid the price demanded of all agents of transformation.
Let’s get one thing clear; the world that rock stars and wannabes inhabit is a Babylonian pit of flint-hearted hedonistic hell. Where youthful egos and vulnerable sensibilities are sustained only by massive intakes of drugs and alcohol. The body count of those who’ve O.D’d during a narcotic numb-out tells its own story.Never the less this has been the arena for works of transcendent life-changing power. Which have exerted more influence than any other art-form of the modern world
Any artist using the capitalist music business as a vehicle for radical change, will inevitably risk seeing their message subsumed and commoditised, packaged and glamorised to reach the widest possible market. But Lou Reed survived with his integrity intact. His influential band The Velvet Underground sold very few records, which makes their profound influence even more remarkable.
What distinguished The Velvet Underground was it’s pared down musical simplicity, with lyrics that painted a world full of deviance and cruelty as well and tenderness and beauty. It was the shadow side of the love zapped flower-power generation. Lou Reed has been accused of cynically exploiting and glamorising the hidden underbelly of society, with its outcasts, drugs and deviant sexuality
As rock journalist Lester Bangs put it: ‘Lou Reed is a depraved pervert and pathetic death-dwarf living off the dumbbell nihilism of desperate people who don’t even have the energy to commit suicide’. In the same article written in 1975, Bangs revealed that despite his legendary status as hipper than hip social commentator, he remained entrenched in old world values.
Referring to a transsexual companion of Lou Reeds as ‘It’, he went on to describe her as: ‘Beyond bizarre, between light and shade – grotesque. Not only grotesque but abject, like something that might have grovellingly scampered in when someone opened the door.- – utterly strange – – a mother lode of unholy awe’ .The ‘It’ Bangs referred to was Rachel, who served as a creative muse during an important period in Reeds artistic development. Bangs later came to be ashamed of this display of ugly ignorance, but Lou Reed never forgave him.
At age 17 Lou was made by his father, to under go electric shock treatment to cure his homosexual tendencies, an experience he was to describe in ‘Kill all your Sons ‘. Such was the world back then. And in some places still is. Lou Reed was not a tourist in the hinter world of sexual evolution. He was right in the center of it.
While reading up on Lou for this tribute I discovered he was a Piscean. A typical spaced out romantic, searching for transcendence from the mundane plod of everyday life in any way offered. His consumption of drugs was voracious – it’s a wonder his liver lasted as long as it did.However his catalogue of work demonstrates that he was able to summon the discipline and focused will needed to pierce the gravitational force-field dividing the passive dreamer from the doer.
In his song Dirty Boulevard Lou sings of the losers and outcasts who inhabit the dark and hidden corners of American society. And of those of them who dare to dream of escaping to a better world. But we are never told what that better world is.To my mind it is only by answering this question that the contributions of Lou Reed and all the other dreamers, visionaries and arbiters of change will be validated.
