Who am I? Why am I here?
Am I alone?
Existentialism focuses on the thoughts, actions, emotions, and responsibilities of the individual. Existentialists do not have any set dogma as this would be antithetical to the nature of the philosophy, but most would tend away from Communism, fascism, socialism, egalitarianism or any other kind of group-think. They don’t really care what religions, societal norms, government officials, or the masses have to say about a subject as they would rather form their own opinions.
Through their questioning, these free-thinking individuals make waves that ripple outward into space and time. Others read their words, look at their art, and are affected by it. Their way of thinking will inevitably be slightly altered, therefore changing their behavior. An extreme individualist, somewhat ironically, can become a catalyst for large social change.
The problem is what happens when great thought becomes perverted.
Friedrich Nietzsche spoke of the will to power as the driving force behind human action. Others argued that it was the will to live (reproducing and avoiding death) that drove humans, but Nietzsche pointed out that humans and other animals would willingly risk their lives for the chance to gain more power. Others would argue that humans just want to be happy or be united with God, but Nietzsche would insist that the will to power provided a more accurate description of human behavior. I think it could best be described as..
The Will to Expand
The Nazis seized upon this idea of the will to power and applied it to a collective group, resulting in an extremely powerful entity. Although it was officially led by Adolf Hitler, the Nazi state was fueled by the actions of millions of individuals who put their lives and souls into making the state grow. This is because when an individual puts a uniform, he or she feels like a part of something greater. Naturally, any group or individual that does not fit in with the common thought and societal norms would be ostracized and quickly routed out.
This type of organism cannot last long. The entity expands for some time and if it is not defeated from the outside, it is brought down from within. And yet this cancerous being comes back time and again with its many faces..
The arrow is pointing to a fascio, which is simply a bundle of sticks tied together for strength. Interestingly enough, another word for fascio is “fag.” In a fascist system of government, everything and everyone is devoted to the expansion of the state and its power. Although the United States is shrinking from power, this allows for a global fascist system of government to take its place in the world. This is the “New World Order.”
If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face – for ever. – Big Brother, 1984
A New Hope
Things are quickly changing in this world. The old power structures are failing as more and more people wake up to a larger reality. They do not sit back and passively wait for an external savior to come in and set things right, but rather look inside to find their own salvation. They effect the position change they want to see around them.
Nietzsche: I teach you of the overman. Man is something that shall be overcome. What have you done to overcome him? … All beings so far have created something beyond themselves; and do you want to be the ebb of this great flood, and even go back to the beasts rather than overcome man? What is ape to man? A laughing stock or painful embarrassment. And man shall be that to overman: a laughingstock or painful embarrassment. You have made your way from worm to man, and much in you is still worm. Once you were apes, and even now, too, man is more ape than any ape.… The overman is the meaning of the earth.… Man is a rope, tied between beast and overman—a rope over an abyss … what is great in man is that he is a bridge and not an end.
A human being is able to transform into something great if given the proper tools and instruction.
I see, I see
People have two visible eyes. Each one independently registers information concerning the vibrational make-up of the surrounding world. This information is sent from the eyeballs through the brain..
Color information is filtered out and then the 2-dimensional visual information is combined to produce a 3-dimensional mental model. Because this information is constantly streaming through time, the brain must register changes in the environment while attempting to retain consistency.
A person is able to able to remember visual information from the past and imagine future events. These memories, thoughts, and dreams comprise a large part of one’s self. I am the one that has experienced all of these things, right?
A person plays an active role in vision. There is an “I” that lies behind the eyes, telling them where to look and what to look for. This “thing” we associate with ourselves lies beyond these dimensions of space and time. It observes and creates. It feels, desires, and ponders. It wishes to know and understand itself.
The Third Eye
The third eye is a mystical and esoteric concept referring in part to the ajna (brow) chakra in certain Eastern and Western spiritual traditions. It is also spoken of as the gate that leads within to inner realms and spaces of higher consciousness. In New Age spirituality, the third eye may alternately symbolize a state of enlightenment or the evocation of mental images having deeply-personal spiritual or psychological significance. The third eye is often associated with visions, clairvoyance (which includes the ability to observe chakras and auras), precognition, and out-of-body experiences.. (Wikipedia entry)
The pineal gland has long been associated with the third eye. It is located near the very center of the brain, sitting between the two hemispheres. It has a profound effect on our wake/sleep cycle as it produces melatonin when the retina aren’t detecting any light. Descartes called the pineal gland the “seat of the soul” and believed it is what connected the body to the mind. David Wilcock asserts that the pineal gland functions as our own personal stargate, allowing us to move from the dimensions of space-time to time-space. (video)
The Pineal Cone
The pineal gland is given its name due to its apparent resemblance to a pine cone. I personally think that the pine cone is also representative of the feeling of unfolding that is experienced when connected.
(The serpent energy.. or DNA.. rises to the crown chakra)
(Dionysus and his “staff”)
We’ll see a few more examples of the pine cone later, but first let’s discuss the current malfunction of this very important part of the brain..
Unfortunately, most adults have a calcified pineal gland. Being unprotected by the blood-brain barrier, it is left in a precarious position. There is compelling evidence to indicate that the calcification of the pineal gland is due to the unnecessary fluoridation of water. (Fluoride and the Pineal Gland)
Maybe this is why the world seems a whole lot less magical as we grow up. It does not have to be like this. We were not meant to lose inner vision.
Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun..
The lack of balance seen in people today is due to the non-use and destruction of a very important part of the brain. An open third eye serves as a mediator between the different aspects of self and hemispheres of the brain. It allows for and individual to see through the material realm of existence and experience a deep and profound connection with the universe.
The experience of having the chakras awakened and the third eye pried open is very difficult to describe with words. Even the best pictures fail to appropriately describe the connection that one feels when the brain is not at war with itself. There is an overwhelming feeling of love, fearlessness, and expansion to a grander state of being.
We are comprised of material that originated at the beginning of time.. if there ever was such a time. This “stuff” has most recently been part of the amazing ecosystems of this planet, but it is truly star dust. After about seven years of living, the entire human body will actually be made up of completely new stuff – it has been continuously rebuilt, and potentially transformed. (Perhaps this is the reason for the “seven year itch.) We don’t have to order these builders around or ask them to do any of this for us – it just happens. Most biological functions will be taken care of automatically, as long as the body is kept healthy.
All things are made up of the same fundamental energy. One’s body is not only made up of denser stuff, but is also comprised of higher frequency vibrations. When the “light body” is bright and working in harmony with the physical body, amazing things can occur.
There were once many good people that knew the deep secrets of the existence. They engaged in battle against the darker powers of the world, were betrayed, suffered serious defeat, and have remained hidden for a long time. Every once in awhile there is a resurgence of powerful, enlightened beings. They are usually tortured, burned or crucified in some way. This is because people tend to fear what they do not understand and also because these beings threaten the establishment.
You can’t win, Darth. If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.
Christianity teaches us that we should accept the punishments we receive for being great – just like Jesus did. In a way, I think this approach could be very effective, but is obviously not preferable! For the record, I believe that a historical man named Yeshua did actually exist. And although I cannot speak for him, I know I certainly wouldn’t like my name, image, or teachings exploited the way his has been.
This kind of thing is bound to happen. A great person comes into this world and leads an extraordinary life, accomplishing many wonders and touching many people. His life ends and then those around him go on to tell his story and try to relate his teachings. The true history becomes confused, distorted, and outright changed through the many years, many wars, and many translations.
Despite the failings of the churches that sprouted up around him, there remains something very beautiful in the story of Jesus. Especially the part when he topples the money changers’ table and beats them out of the temple..
And I like the part where he tells people that they can do what he does and more. He shows others the path of achieving power through wisdom and knowledge. He hid his true teachings in metaphor because there are the dark forces that want to harness and exploit this power..
Good vs. Evil
Each individual should assess for himself or herself what it means to be moral.
The Stand begins as a virus is released from an underground military base, wiping out almost the entire population of the United States, and presumably the rest of the world. Some humans are resistant to the bio-weapon and form together into loose alliances in the post-apocalyptic environment. The good people are psychically drawn to Denver while the bad people, many of whom are engineers, are led by a demonic character in Arizona. This man, called the Walking Dude, has ascended abilities that allow him to teleport, levitate, and control the minds of his followers. As he levitates off of the ground, he repeats the phrase “I am.”
Hillary Duff, Godsmack, Neil Diamond, Kid Rock, Nas, Beyonce, Pete Townsend, and Earth, Wind and Fire all have songs or albums titled “I am.” What is the reason for this?
The “I AM” Activity began in the 1930s in the United States, but was largely influenced by theosophy. From the Wikipedia entry:
The group teaches that the “Mighty I AM Presence,” is the way in which God exists as each person’s Higher Self, and that a light known as the “Violet Flame” can be generated by the “I AM Presence” to surround each person who calls forth this action or expresses mercy or forgiveness. The group believes that by tapping into these internalized powers in accordance with the teachings of the Ascended Masters, one can use the “Presence” to eliminate evil from the world in favor of justice, and also to minimize personal difficulties in one’s life.
The spiritual goal of the teachings is that, through a process of self-purification, rather than ordinary death the believer would become an Ascended Master when leaving their body. The process of attaining these results includes meditation, affirmations, and “decrees”, to create alignment with the “I AM Presence” and invoke the Violet Flame, resulting in the desired positive changes.
“I AM THAT I AM” is a deeply profound statement and is a translation for the God of the Hebrews YHWH – Yahweh. Let’s hear what the Catholic’s have to say about this in their Catechisms:
In revealing his mysterious name, YHWH (“I AM HE WHO IS”, “I AM WHO AM” or “I AM WHAT I AM”), God says who he is and by what name he is to be called. This divine name is mysterious just as God is mystery. It is at once a name revealed and something like the refusal of a name, and hence it better expresses God as what he is – infinitely above everything that we can understand or say: he is the “hidden God”, his name isineffable, and he is the God who makes himself close to men.
Mutants in the Media
There has been a wealth of movies recently dealing with the governments (ab)use of gifted people. The X-Men series is especially interesting as it features mutants against mutants, the future of robots (Sentinels) being sent to destroy mutants, and shows the politics of how governments try to deal with “the mutant problem.”
In X-Men II, a government agent attempts to use mind control on Professor X to get him to locate and destroy all mutants using Cerebro, a piece of technology that can view the life energies on the planet. In X-Men III, we watch as many exceptional individuals receive a shot to “cure” them of their mutation and make them “normal.” We also see the rise of the incredibly powerful Phoenix, a fiery red-head that has ultimate control over her environment, and who eventually puts a stop to the injections. In X-Men Origins there is a secret government program to capture mutants and combine their powers. In X-Men Alliance (a video game) the mutants choose sides over the new mutant registration legislation and are invaded by body-snatcher nanotechnology (nanites) that fuse with the mutants.
Suspect Zero stars Ben Kingsley (Gandhi) as a psychic employed by the government to catch a serial killer. This psychic was once part of an actual government program to develop remote viewers. Although the story is “fictional,” the program is real. (US Government support for Remote Viewing)
And remote viewing is only part of it..
There is a new movie out called The Men Who Stare at Goats. This is the plot from IMDb: A reporter in Iraq might just have the story of a lifetime when he meets Lyn Cassady, a guy who claims to be a former member of the U.S. Army’s First Earth Battalion, a unit that employs paranormal powers in their missions. In the previews we see Clooney staring intently at a goat until it falls over, presumably dead. My friend just saw this movie and told me that the group of military psychics all have pyramids with all-seeing eyes tattooed on their chests. They also call themselves Jedi.
And just for a moment I would like to speak to the importance of goats in American history..
Baphomet has breasts, an awakened Kundalini running up his spine, a third eye represented by a pentagram, and the flame of consciousness above his head.
I don’t think that many otherwise intelligent people would openly worship the devil, especially if they believed that they would end up in hell for it. I found this interesting interesting interpretation of “goat symbolism” at houseofnames.com: The goat is a symbol of practical wisdom and an emblem of a man who wins victories through diplomatic means, rather than by force. It may also represent one who is willing to work hard for high honors. The goat was associated with Christ, since both were partial to high places and had sharp eyes. A man bearing this symbol was thought to have God on his side. The goat is a symbol that is often found in armory.
Remember how Bush was reading My Pet Goat upside down on the morning of September 11th? Maybe that was a subtle cue for us to consider him an idiot – the opposite of a goat. For anyone unfamiliar with tarot, turning a card upside down changes its polarity.
In Drag Me to Hell, a woman is haunted by a goat demon after an old lady puts a curse on her. This curse is placed because the main character decides to not extend a loan to the lady, causing her to lose her house. The psychological warfare played on this woman by the demon causes her to kill her cat, dig up the bones of the old woman, and do anything possible to avoid being taken to hell. And as she never really seems sincere about becoming a better person, the movie ends (somewhat surprisingly) with her being escorted to the fiery pit. The devil taking down a poor, innocent soul or a wise goat god enacting divine judgment?
Is it possible that we really end up paying for our actions into eternity? If so, who do we turn to for this important information regarding our salvation?
The Catholic Church
Sorry, they’re in on it too. I wonder why they never told me about the importance of the pineal gland, considering they have a massive pine cone sitting right there in the Vatican..
You probably know that the current Pope was a Nazi youth, but did you realize he wears a yamaka?
(Sometimes it flies off. The face of the guy on the right is priceless.)
The yamaka is symbolic protection from possession, which would likely occur through the top of the head. When one awakens a good deal of energy, many entities can feel it and respond to it. Some of these spirits are good, but it seems that many might not have the best of intentions for us.
And when you are “open,” you can still be programmed. The rulers of this world have been perfecting the science of mind control for thousands of years. But for most people it only takes a person in a uniform or “position of power” to cause them to cede the control over their actions (Milgram’s experiment). These controllers know they can get the masses to do whatever they want – chemically, physically, and psychologically.
There is one drug that has long been touted by the anti-establishment crowd as a great way to combat the programming and quickly attain higher states of mind – marijuana. The movie Pineapple Express opens with a scene in black and white, showing the U.S. government experimenting with powerful marijuana in the past. They cut the experiment as marijuana only seems to make the test subjects less respectful of authority.
It also allows helps the “heroes”of the story to make it through an incredibly violent and disturbing ordeal intact..
(see “Reclaiming the Rainbow”)
The word “assassin” actually comes from the Arabic word Hashshashin. These fierce warriors were convinced they were doing the will of God. Therefore they would fight with passion, unafraid of death, confident in their place in the afterlife. They we also reported to have been hash eaters, although many believe this is just slander.
The Crown of Power
This beautiful gift we have been given can be misused..
From Hellboy II: It is said that at the dawn of time, man, beast, and all magical beings lived together under Aeglin, the Father Tree. But man had been created with a hole in his heart, a hole that no possession, power, or knowledge could fill. And in his infinite greed, man dreamed of expanding his dominion over the entire earth. The blood of many an elf, ogre, and goblin was spilled in their war with man, and King Balor, the one-armed king of Elfland, watched the slaughter in dread and despair. But one day, the master of the goblin blacksmiths offered to build the king a golden mechanical army, seventy times seventy soldiers, that would never know hunger, and could not be stopped. Prince Nuada begged his father to agree. “Build me this army,” the king said. And so, a magical crown was forged that would allow those of royal blood to command the Golden Army, if unchallenged.
In times such as these, when there are powerful forces allied against us, we must seek protection.
..Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms..
The armor Paul is speaking about does not seem to be any physical armaments (like those made by Vulcan). This “armor of God” must be something much more profound.
(3-d Star of David – the merkabah)
A being must find balance in this existence in order to survive, expand, and ascend. This is of utmost important in these distressing times, especially with the ever-imminent..
Interchanging mind control,
Come let the revolution take it’s toll,
If you could flick a switch and open your third eye,
You’d see that
We should never be afraid to die.
The people of this world are being pushed toward revolution. Many in the media are currently running program V (for Violence)..
(is that V’s hand or a pine cone?)
After “freeing peoples’ minds” in the Matrix, the Wachowski brothers came out with another movie that was well received. Based on the graphic novel by Alan Moore, the story follows an anarchist hero as he battles against a totalitarian state in Britain’s “future.” The hero of the story is V, a terrorist (voiced by Agent Smith/ Elrond) that blows up government buildings and kills corrupt politicians. But since he is so smart, funny, and convincing you just can’t help but side with him against the assholes that have ruined their country. Eventually, the citizens rise up and take to the streets on November 5th, Guy Fawkes day, and take back their government without weapons or one shot being fired. The reason that they were able to do this without being mowed down by machine gun fire is not because the goons in uniform felt compassion toward the crowds, but because V took out their leader and the soldiers never received an order.
Remember, remember the 5th of November. The Fort Hood shooting took place on November 5th, 2009. The Army major blamed for the shootings, a Muslim psychiatrist, was actually working on a technique for electrically stimulating the brains of soldiers with PTSD so that they could return to the field of battle more quickly. Could something in this Universal Soldier program have gone wrong? There are many questions that should be asked concerning this case, but let’s return to V for the time being..
The tv series V is currently making a big buzz. ABC is re-making the 1983 mini-series, wherein: a race of aliens arrive on Earth in a fleet of 50 huge, saucer-shaped motherships, which hover over major key cities across the world. They reveal themselves on the roof of the United Nations building in New York City, appearing human but requiring special glasses to protect their eyes and having a distinctive resonance to their voices. Referred to as the Visitors, they reach out in friendship, ostensibly seeking the help of humans to obtain chemicals and minerals needed to aid their ailing world. In return, the Visitors promise to share their advanced technology with humanity. The governments of Earth accept the arrangement, and the Visitors, commanded by their leader Jon and his deputy Diana, begin to gain considerable influence with human authorities. (Wikipedia link)
It is revealed that the Visitors are actually reptilian creatures (see “Rise of the Dragon”) disguised as beautiful people. Most people welcome the aliens with open arms because of the gifts they receive, like free healthcare, but a small group of people understand what is going on and form a resistance movement to battle against these evil forces. I’ve heard this story before..
In our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us recognize this common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world. And yet, I ask is not an alien force already among us? Ronald Reagan speaking to the 42nd assembly of the United Nations. (Jake Kotze reveals the symbolic importance of the number 42 in the video Rainbow Star)
This has all been a set up. Everything that has transpired has done so according to my design. Your friends, up there on the sanctuary moon, are walking into a trap, as is your Rebel fleet. (the Emperor)
In Unbreakable, Samuel L. Jackson is a man with a condition that causes him to be very frail, constantly breaking his bones and hurting himself. He believes that there must be someone out there at the other end of the spectrum. In order to find this super man, he stages trains crashes and takes down buildings. Through his terrorist actions, he is able to find the powerful man he is seeking.
By standing up and by opening up, I am revealing myself .
When trying to “vanquish evil”, many good people can lose their souls. In all of the carnage and brutality, they forget what makes life magical and what makes the individual unique.
Take your weapon. Strike me down with all of your hatred and your journey towards the dark side will be complete!
No. I will not become like you..
We have all done harm to other people over the years. I know for damn sure that I have. I apologize to any one that I have hurt. The worst kind of damage we can do to one another is psychological. Guilt, hatred, jealousy, distrust, and fear are very powerful weapons but their use has consequences, many of which are unforeseen.
Forgiveness goes a long way. If people seek my forgiveness, I will give it to them, but the fact of the matter is that they never needed it in the first place. The most important thing is to forgive yourself. Now, we are free..
No matter how bad things get, never give up. Help is always around the corner and comes when needed most.. but don’t count on it!
Do not be afraid even in the darkest of times. The pain we feel in this life is only temporary.
It is hard to say what comes next, but I have a feeling things will work out just fine in the end if I just keep on shining.
