American Gods is a Hugo and Nebula Award-winning novel by Neil Gaiman. The novel is a blend of Americana, fantasy, and various strands of ancient and modern mythology, all centering on a mysterious and taciturn protagonist, Shadow.  AGWiki I haven’t read this yet but here’s the download.  American Gods.  And here’s a blow by blow analysis.  ForgottenGod And here’s the 1st of 12 online readings.  AmericanGods This book is to gothic what “whole lotta love” is to acid rock”
This guy’s got an interesting take on it.  “The mainstream concept of considering religious diversity and its negative effect on mankind as a social enigma, and attempting to find ways of making it work cohesively, has been, and is a total failure. But, the logical approach of attempting to discover the truth behind the phenomenon of multiple gods, and examining alternative explanations for it is ignored. A practical approach is to consider the alternatives and determine the logic of each of the possible reasons for this diversity.” WorldsGods As does the theosophical society.  Theosophy holds that all religions are attempts by the “Spiritual Hierarchy” to help humanity in evolving to greater perfection, and that each religion therefore has a portion of the truth   Theosophy Research ChrystalLinks is an excellent website for exploration in this area.  Have we entered the dawn of the age of aquarius ?  5thDimension This is getting spooky. Shadow appears to be the one I refer to as stranger, and Helga refers to as spectre in atenonol dreams.  This is a triple hit, enough to elevate Schrödinger’s “one mind” from “could be” to “best answer to date” .  Anybody have any thoughts on that?  Weird shit man.  GoogleBooks

“More than a tourist in America, but not a native, Neil Gaiman offers an outside-in and inside-out perspective on the soul and spirituality of the country–our obsessions with money and power, our jumbled religious heritage and its societal outcomes, and the millennial decisions we face about what’s real and what’s not.” –Therese Littleton “Religions are, by definition, metaphors, after all: God is a dream, a hope, a woman, an ironist, a father, a city, a house of many rooms, a watchmaker who left his prize chronometer in the desert, someone who loves you-even, perhaps, against all evidence, a celestial being whose only interest is to make sure your football team, army, business, or marriage thrives, prospers and triumphs over all opposition.  Religions are places to stand and look and act, vantage points from which to view the world.” – American Gods p508

Is this in fact the dawning of the age of aquarius? Monkey see, monkey do? There may well be a “critical mass” required to shift a new behavior from being a fragile personal idiosyncrasy to being a well-established alternative, but creating a new alternative does not automatically displace older alternatives. It just provides more choices. It is possible that the washing alternative established by the monkeys on Koshima Island did create a morphogenetic field that made it easier for monkeys on other islands to “discover” the same technique, but the actual research neither supports nor denies that idea. It remains for other cultural experiments and experiences to illuminate this question.

The 100th monkey phenomenon is supposed to kick in when 1/3 of the population achieves awareness.  There definitely is something to this. The same phenomenon was observed in the Mogabi zoo, where chimps were observed washing cats prior to stuffing them down the garbage disposal, saving on plumbing bills. (Note picture above) The practice has since spread to all zoos. From what I have seen so far,  from the end of the ice age, our connectedness has been systematically destroyed leaving us as mindless robots, swarming in this ant warren of a society we live in.   

“It is not in the nature of man–nor of any living entity–to start out by giving up, by spitting in one’s own face and damning existence; that requires a process of corruption whose rapidity differs from man to man. Some give up at the first touch of pressure; some sell out; some run down by imperceptible degrees and lose their fire, never knowing when or how they lost it. Then all of these vanish in the vast swamp of their elders who tell them persistently that maturity consists of abandoning one’s mind; security, of abandoning one’s values; practicality, of losing self-esteem. Yet a few hold on and move on, knowing that that fire is not to be betrayed, learning how to give it shape, purpose and reality. But whatever their future, at the dawn of their lives, men seek a noble vision of man’s nature and of life’s potential. …” – Ayn Rand

“And then the man who bears the pitcher will walk across an arc of heaven. The sign and signet of the Son of man stands forth in the eastern sky. The wise will then lift up their heads and know that the redemption of the earth is near” – Bible “What lies ahead for Humanity? With all the problems we have, it’s hard to believe our future is bright. Inflation and recession, environmental deterioration, diminishing resources, unrest and oppression in developing countries, and apathy, loneliness and lack of direction in developed ones all combine to severely cloud the horizon…It may seem fantastic, but the signs in the heavens point to an extraordinary renewal in the years just ahead. If we recall some recent trends, this prospect doesn’t seem so outlandish. It wasn’t too long ago that we heard about the dawning of the Age of Aquarius, and about the revival of spirit among the new generation. We can still hear the echoes of John Kennedy’s call to action and see the vision of Martin Luther King’s dream. Before he and his dream were shot down in 1968, he said we as a people “would get to the promised land.” The promise seems empty now, yet the planetary cycles support his prophecy. For what we discover when we examine these cycles is compelling evidence that a renaissance and a golden age is right around the corner.”


But with the we inside of me, I can see man in all his glory and depravity.  The gift has a dark side. Hope and foreboding coexist. Kumbaya Or maybe the age of aquarius will be a self fulfilling prophecy.  Or….. maybe I’m full of shit, I am crazy, don’t you know?   The problem, in my minds, is that neither of these views can be elevated to “best answer to date”.  Dunno. Troubling.

 

I left this for the webmaster at forgotten gods.
Hmmm!
You would be doing a disservice to mankind if you were to reveal the name of the forgotten god. It is the quest, not the arriving that is important. I speak to that obliquely here>  Epiphany Express
it is the grail in percival
I call it the key to ANN.
Learning makes it profound, teaching makes it trite.
The Forgotten God, like the vedic scripts, and the bible, and folklore, myths, legends are not to be taken literally. After all, what’s a meta phor?
The forgotten god is unique to each individual and profound, else it is dogma and trite. that is the whole point.
neil cautioned you on this here> Please don’t reveal the identity of the god/folkloric entity that people always forget,
so let’s keep it our little secret.
Hmmm?

The Age of Aquarius

When the moon is in the seventh house And jupiter aligns with mars The peace will guide the planets and love will steer the stars This is the dawning of the age of aquarius Harmony and understanding Sympathy and trust abounding No more falsehoods or derisions Golden living dreams of visions Mystic crystals revelations And the minds true liberation Aquarius

“The Gaia hypothesis is an ecological hypothesis proposing that the biosphere and the physical components of the Earth (atmosphere, cryosphere, hydrosphere and lithosphere) are closely integrated to form a complex interacting system that maintains the climatic and biogeochemical conditions on Earth in a preferred homeostasis.”– Wikipedia This seems to be very similar to the Aboriginal world view. Ie man is an integral part of the world. Gaia’s Laughter

“Mother Nature can provide man’s needs, but not all man’s wants” – el Loco Gringo

The first council of Nicea AD 325, in an effort to expunge all feminity from christianity replaced father, son and shakinah with father, son and holy ghost. Shakinah was the feminine side of god. Analysis testing of “the last supper” by da Vinci reveals that a female figure was painted over, speculation was that it was Mary Magdelen. Just to Jesus’s right (that’s the guy in the red dress. Below) Also expunged was Book of Mary I and II. The wife’s vow, “to love, honor, and cherish” was replaced with, “to love, honor and obey.” The translation involved in the original ceremony was inaccurate. Thus the western world was left with all power and no finesse.

And then there is Azna. Mother God is the emotion. She can move, nurture, intervene and interfere. The relationship between Azna and earth is especially close. She is the harmonizer, the active helper and keeper of life. Her dominion is all living things on earth, from which the cherished image of Mother Nature was inspired. She’s been called the Lady of Lotus by Buddhists, as well as Ashara, Theodora, Sophie and Isis in faiths and cultures throughout the world for centuries upon centuries. Without the all-knowing, all-perfect intellect of Father God (om), we would be pure emotion. Without Azna, we would be pure intellect.

“A deep reverence for Mother Earth lies at the heart of the beliefs and traditions of the native nations of North America. Whether for inhabitants of lush, fertile lands, arid desert, ocean shores, or the harsh subartic, nature is the peoples’ bountiful provider, and earth the sustainer of life. As seen in the lifeways of ancient hunter-gatherers, trappers, and fishers through centuries of adaptation to new circumstances, homelands, and techniques, a profound respect for earth’s fellow-creatures – both philosophical and practical – permeates Native American society.” – Searching Eagle

I have heard the Aboriginal worldview described as Circular. Circular reasoning is an attempt to support a statement by simply repeating the statement in different or stronger terms. In this fallacy, the reason given is nothing more than a restatement of the conclusion that poses as the reason for the conclusion.I don’t see it that way, I see it as “wheels within wheels” and not even “what goes around comes around” but “what goes around comes around goes around etc”. For instance the Mayan 260 day calendar would seem to make no sense unless one considers that the gestation period is 260 days. Thus if a woman conceived on Tzolkin 10 she could expect the birth on Tzolkin 10, As this was synchronized with the Haab (365 day calendar) no calculation was needed

In keeping with Mr. Ted’s suggestion of using “whorls within whorls” rather than “wheels within wheels” I went looking again for cymatics. Even closer to reality however is “waves within waves”

These are some really cool videos. Highly idealized though. It is amazing what emotions can be evoked with such primitave instuments as the flute, the drum and the Moog synthesizer.

Dark Madonna

For the ordinary people of the Cathar lands, and especially for the women, the Virgin Mary was in fact worshipped and she was (and is) the Dark Madonnas of southern France and northern Spain and she summoned up all the ancient pagan fertility beliefs of the earth they lived upon. This Virgin Mary was the people’s goddess and the irony of the Cathar massacres is that this Dark Mary survived.

Diva – Isn’t this the paradox of any good idea? The Virgin Mary became an institution of power and control, a diva. By the 16th century her cult was out of control, although this may have helped her pull off the destruction of the Turkish navy at Lepanto in 1571.

DancingInTheFlames – An often misunderstood Feminine force is raised to her place of honor This is a profound exploration of the often misunderstood Dark Goddess and her ability to transform all of us. Marion Woodman leads us all in a deeper understanding of the often unseen & unappreciated aspects of the Feminine, so needed for a soulful life. The dedication of this book to Sophia says it all “Integrity in love is the only true guide to the wisdom that leads to freedom”. Thank you Marion and Elinor for being the wise women who lead us all to freedom by giving our souls the rich sustenance of the numinous Feminine goddesses.

 

 

Is this then armagedan II? Another battle in the never ending yin/yang war. The battle between the forces of good, the divine feminine, and the forces of evil the fallen angels of the feminazis?

Consider what religion has done to islam and christianity. Consider what politics has done to democracy. Consider what law has done to justice. Consider “burka Rage” an opening skirmish perhaps? Did the devine feminine attack the suppressed fallen angel? Consider. This is a war that will have no winners. Isn’t it odd how we keep dancing to the same tune, even after the band has stopped playing? ShoppingForBurkas

“I am blessed/cursed with the gift/burden of the we inside of me“. – el Loco Gringo

Is this the angel of death that keeps being alluded to? Is this what brought on the dark ages? Is this the precipice? Is this the abyss? Could be, but there are a lot of candidates. Instead of the road not taken, we keep to the long and winding road. “The moving finger writes, and having writ, moves on” – Omar Khayyam

I don’t have a good feeling about this

 

 

Kwan Yin

Posted in Godesses with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 14, 2010 by ellocogringo

The Big Karuna

Karuna is incompletely translated as compassion. Compassion has overtones of pity, whereas karuna has overtones of oneness, connectedness. A deep love for all beings. kwan yin is one who “hears the cries of the world” More akin to the Greek agape.


Not to be confused with kama (lust) the KamaSutra (collection of such aphorisms in the form of a manual) then is a book on the physical act of love. Not even as noble as “making love” it is concerned only with sensual pleasures associated with sex. On this topic, it is interesting to note that mohammed wanted to translate the kama sutra into Arabic, a 180 degree switch in zeitgeist. I saw temples in India decorated like the one at left. I started counting the different positions and got lost somewhere around 100. Some of the positions looked like they’d hurt.

…………………………………………………………………..

Again I’m not going to wast time talking about quan ying. The thing I like most about her is that there is no right way to spell her name. What I didn’t like was the joss sticks. Almost like pepper spray. This is the temple at Penang, in malaya. It’s near the Genting Highlands where I used to go to play golf. This is a link to the Awana resort.. $70 bucks a night may seem steep but it’s a plush place, golf is free as are the activities. And it’s cool. When ready for bed they’ll come up, fluff the pillow and tuck you in. Kind of an embarassing decadence. Going to Malaya from Singapore is like going to Mexico from the US.

Some bad shit is coming folks.  The exact form is indeterminate.  But something is going to happen. Civilization, as it exists is optimized for maximized profit for the elite (Money Grubbing Scum)  The earth can sustain about 200 million people at the current US life style.  The US can support about 2-3 million at the hunter gatherer level.  I can see no solution that doesn’t involve a population reduction IMMEDIATELY.  Had there been a one child per family policy when I was in high school, we would just now be leveling out at about 4 billion, and perhaps beginning a modest decline.  The video below earth 2100 envisions an ecological disaster which will render civilization destroyed by 2100.  This is mere alarmist propaganda.  Nothing to worry about.  Mankind will be extinct long before then.  Hidden in the overpopulation problem is the problem of optimization.  For several thousand years mankind maintained a sustainable population by practicing crop rotation.  War, famine, disease kept the population down.  Typically there was a town surrounded by farmland.  Food was raised locally and the town provided the industrial base.  Assuming no unforeseen disaster, this town was pretty much self-sustaining.  Crops were rotated to allow the soil to recover.  Cattle shit in the fields returning nitrogen to the soil.  Civilization continued pretty much in this pattern until the 1900’s.  Settlers would establish a town in the center of the best farmland.  Then optimization began in earnest.  With a petroleum fueled economy the suburbs moved onto the best farmland. McMansions on their 1/4 acre estates overran the landscape.  Commutes that were minutes can now be measured in hours.  The local farmers were replaced  with mega-farms which no longer rotate the crops. Cattle are raised in pens in Fort Worth, the grain to feed them in Kansas.  The cattle are shot up with hormones to increase their growth rate which is affecting the population and the environment. Disposing of the cattle shit has become an ecological disaster.  Meanwhile the wheat farms in Kansas have to resort to petroleum based fertilizers and genetically engineered crops to maximize their profit, because they no longer have easy access to cattle shit. The farmland is being laid waste.  The government meanwhile has become a support system for maintaining this maximization of profit, providing the transportation, finance, infrastructure and propaganda necessary no matter what the cost.  It is the system that is the problem.

A failure in any component of this corrupt system will result in a collapse of the whole.  It has become incredibly fragile, a house of cards that can collapse at a moment’s notice.  And it will be swift. A massive rapid kill off of the population.   I see nothing on the horizon that can prevent this.  And it could be anything, any strain on the system will collapse this house of cards.  In high school the population of the earth was 3 billion, now it’s over 6 billion, this cannot happen again.  I have seen the damage that has been done to the ecosystem and it is irreversible.    We have passed the tipping point.  Housewives in el Segundo are recycling, and suburbanites in Des Moines are buying more fuel efficient cars. Diplomats are negotiating carbon credits at the UN.  It doesn’t matter.  There is an unseen negotiator at the table.  Mother Nature, and Mother Nature is a bitch.  She’s going to push the reset button.  You really screwed the pooch on this folks.  It is not the politicians, not the elite, not the nebulous New World Order, it’s not the democrats or the republicans, it’s not the christians or the Moslems or the Hindus.  It’s not an impact by an asteroid or invasion by aliens.  It is not Armageddon or Ragnarök. The problem is YOU.  YOU allowed this to happen.  YOU think that if you’ve got a six pack to suck on while watching the Superbowl everything is OK.  Well, it ain’t.   And you will find out. And it won’t be the hundred year decline envisioned in earth 2100, it will take less than a year.

Watch earth 2100. It’s a 9 part series.  I hope it scares the shit out of you.  You are idiots.  Look what you’ve done.  You have shit in your own nest, even an animal knows not to do that.  Hopefully the collapse will weed you out of the gene pool.

What to do? Dunno

Sajani Shakya – Child Goddess

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

The Kumari, or virgin deity, is a Hindu cult practised in Nepal, and represents the reincarnation of Dea Taleju Bhawani, also known in India as Durga. The Kumari are chosen among the Buddhist children of the Newar Shakya caste, resident in Kathmandu for at least three generations; the cast is the same one to which Buddha belonged. Even if chosen among Buddhists they are equally venerated by Hindus. During her annual feast, Kumari Jiatra, she is permitted to go out in public in a covered carriage.

They are born mortal humans, members of the lower castes, but are then elevated to the realms of the living deities; forced to live in isolation from early childhood, without friends and deprived of an education, on their first menstruation or sign of illness they return human once more, have to drastically adapt themselves to the difficulties of everyday life. They are the Kumari, Hinduism’s living deities, who are now beginning to rebel against the “inhuman superstitions” who in Nepal, are forced to live a lonely single life, deprived of affection in the belief that anyone who marries them will die within a few months.

This post is a placekeeper I use as a memopad to resources. It is not complete, nor will it ever be. As I find interesting stuff in regard to the re-emergence of the devine feminine, I will upload them to divshare and provide downloadable links at the bottom. Isopata is a good place to start.

Comentary I see some really disturbing trends in society. In the ’70’s Feminism was an egalitarian movement. It has turned vicious and society is deteriorating rapidly. Consider Islam, what started as an egalitarian inclusive progressive society has been hijacked by wingnuts and we are left with an oppressive society, psychotic in nature. ApocolypseSoon or ReturnToBalance The choice is yours or you can buy your burkas girls.
Isopata – the seal The double Ax was the symbol of the Snake Priestess. The Snake Priestess of Minoan Crete were the keepers of the Goddess’s Double Ax. The Hall of the Double Ax is one of the most complete Goddess worship sites ever discovered. Thousands of devotees would gather there to do the spiral dance.

AKA Feminine God Mother God, Heavenly Mother, Sophia, Isis, Lakshmi, Tara, Azna, Gaia, Mother Earth, shakinah, mythos and other names are all aspects of the Divine Feminine

Glorification of the divine feminine. Latter-day Saints infer from authoritative sources of scripture and modern prophecy that there is a Heavenly Mother as well as a Heavenly Father. (This supprised even me.) So what does this all mean? If we look at the world through the spirituality tunnel, we perceive the universe. If we were physicists we may call it the space time continuum. If we are oriental, we may call it Tao. If we are religious we may call it GOD (caps, the real GOD). If we are Hindu we see no distinction. But this is just a word, and the word is not the concept. This perception is evaluated by the right mind in a parallel/boolean network as god. (small caps) this perception is interpreted by the left mind as religion. If the child has been imprinted (instilling values) The algorithm of the left mind is imprinted on the right mind resulting in an ideology, usually permanent, The RBF. The right mind has been hijacked.

If we are oriental we may use the tao mobile. So the words we use to describe TAO is entirely dependent on worldview and whether our mind has been hijacked. (you may call it the space/time continuum, nirvana, god, doesn’t matter, these are all words used to describe our perception of tao.

Bastet

Posted in Godesses, Travel with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 27, 2010 by ellocogringo

 


Bast is first and foremost a protectress; specifically of the royal house and the Two Lands. Later she got the life-preserving goddess of joy and protector of women. However, Bast’s original role did not include the “cat as sex symbol” archetype. Worshiped in the Delta city of Bubastis and usually depicted as a cat or in human form with the head of a cat, Bast was seen as a protector of cats and those who cared for them. “Cat as sex symbol” doesn’t do a lot for me. I do however have a keen interest in Bastet, the feline aspect of this particular divinity.

Bastet

Cats were domesticated soon after the agricultural period started. (although from my perspective cats domesticated us). They were really valued by the ancient egyptians. Killing one was a death penalty. There were actually two types of cat. The swamp cat (bastet) and the domestic cat (miu) (pronounced meow). Meow is “people talk” for a cat, by the way. They don’t say meow to each other, they are communicating to people. Hmm! Bastet was viewed as the “eyes of Horus” the egyptian god of flatulence. Cats were revered in Egypt, when the household cat died the members of the family shaved their eyebrows. They were even mumified where people would pay the priests of the temple to mumify a cat. Analysis of these mummies showed that they were “helped in their journey”. So a cat had a pretty good life in Egypt as long as they stayed away from the temples.

This is my interest in the matter. I had one of these things. They’re somewhat bigger than a domestic cat. Their tail is also thick and bony. When agitated, he would flip his tail back and forth and if it hit your shin, it hurt. Most distinct was his head, his nose went from the top of his skull straight to his nose, his head was thin which meant he had to look directly at you giving the appearance of staring. I can see why they were called the “eyes of Horus”. Rather disconcerting. He knew how to open the bathroom door, and when we had guests he would go in and watch. The ladies were quite disturbed. Actually he didn’t care about them peeing, he knew that when they got off the porcelain spring it would have cold water. If he thought about it at all, he probable thought she pee’d clear spring water. Here’s a picture I think shows what I’m talking about. Oddly enough the reason I got him was an idiot in the neighborhood had asked the spca to pick up the stray cats in the neighborhood. the mice population exploded. lucky she didn’t start black death II.

 

While I’m talking about critters, has anybody ever seen a tiger? I don’t mean those wimpy little things you see in the zoo. I mean a TIGER. Living in Singapore you tend to forget that right across jahore bahru is tropical jungle. My wife and I would go into Malaya for the beach. On one of these outings I saw a tiger strolling down the beach, and decided to take a swim. My original plan was to swim to the Philipines, but then I remembered that these waters were notorious for sharks. So, as I wait waist deep, I make a mental note to myself “in the future, if there is one, try to maintain better situational awareness”. For some reason, these things seem bigger when there are no bars between you.

Yet another critter I ran into in Singapore. This is the Singapura, found nowhere else. Called the Singapore love cat because of their affectionate nature. Smaller than a domestic cat they are quite rare outside of Singapore where they are considered a national treasure. Affectionate little beggers. Singapura

 

Blue Russian

Ah here’s a jewel. One spring in NC I was airing out the house, and saw a flash of movement going under my bed. Figuring it was one of my cats I ignored it for awhile. When it didn’t come out I got down on the floor to coax it out. It was a really scrawny cat, weighing less than 3 pounds and filthy. After vacuuming it I found it to be a beautiful cat. Have you ever seen a blue animal? I hadn’t. The picture doesn’t do it justice, it had an irridescent sheen when the light flectorized off it. So I did some research. It looks like a Russian Blue, a favorite of Tzar Nicholas who was the only one allowed to have them. When the Romanov family was executed the cats were killed with them. Bye, Bye rusian blue. BUT! It later turned out that Tzar Nicholas had given 12 of them to the King of Sweden at the time. They’re really quite rare. He had been declawed, and I really didn’t have any use for a cat that couldn’t back off a doberman, so I contacted the blue russian society. They were quite skeptical, they knew where all the blue russians were, don’t you know? I sent them some pictures and they sent someone out to check him out. He was sitting on the hood of my car when she arrived and she ignored me and said “Holy shit, it really is a blue russian”. She scooped it up and I could see I’d have to fight her to get it back. There’s no mistaking it if you’ve ever seen one. They had no idea where it came from. Not bad for something you find under the bed.

Serval

Here’s another odd one. At dusk one day toodling down a country road in NC I saw this animal on the side of the road in much the same posture as the picture. It looked like a dingo, which I had seen in Australia (huge ears, right size). “What in the hell is a dingo doing in NC?” A few days later I had taken one of my cats to the vet and saw a poster offering a $1000 reward for a serval cat. Damn it looked like what I saw. I called her up to tell her about it and a few days these same posters began appearing around the neighborhood. A few days later she called me back to say she got her cat. Someone had seen the poster came home from work and saw it waiting with his cat in the driveway. He opened the garage door, they both went in, and he closed it and called her up. She told me she paid $5000 for it and it could run 50 MPH. it’s like a mini cheetah. Which left me to wonder “why would anyone pay $5000 for a cat, specially one that could run 5o MPH?”

Possum

I lived in the country and occasionally would see this one along with mine at the food bowl. Didn’t seem very friendly though.

The Black Death was one of the deadliest pandemics in human history, peaking in Europe between 1348 and 1350. Cats fell out of grace beginning with pope innocent III. (Pope idiot III) doesn’t he look like a goober? He started the black death.

Nefertiti. A lot of people do not know that sometimes the pharohs were black. There was the lower kingdom which was up on the map, then there was the upper kingdom which was low on the map. Go figure. That’s why I picked the choclate princess above.

 

Azna

Mother God, Heavenly Mother, Sophia, Isis, Lakshmi, Tara, Azna, Gaia, Mother Earth, shakinah, mythos and  other names are all aspects of the Divine Feminine

We must not, however, forget the masculine god Om

“Without the all-knowing, all-perfect intellect of Father god (om), we would be pure emotion. Without Mother god (Azna), we would be pure intellect.”

“Om, therefore, represents both the unmanifest (nirguna) and manifest (saguna) aspects of God. That is why it is called pranava, to mean that it pervades life and runs through our prana or breath”

Hindi Worldview

Mother Azna Ask Azna Om & Azna

I continue to be struck by the non-inconsistencies of the various world views.  These are just various ways we project our dual mind’s interpretations onto the universe.  It’s all the same thing.  Just depends on which tunnel we look through.  If you are aware of the feminine god, by whatever name, you are centered, in the zone, connected.  Else, you’re an idiot

For I am the first and the last

I am the venerated and the despised

I am the prostitute and the saint

I am the wife and the virgin

I am the mother and the daughter

I am the arms of my mother

I am barren and my children are many

I am the married woman and the spinster

I am the woman who gives birth and she who never procreated

I am the consolation for the pain of birth

I am the wife and the husband

And it was my man who created me

I am the mother of my father

I am the sister of my husband

And he is my rejected son

Always respect me

For I am the shameful and the magnificent one.”

”Nag Hammadi codex NHCVI




Isis

She of the throne



AKA Creation, Creatrix of the Nile Flood, Diadem of Life, Divine Mother, Female Principle in Nature, Fresh Tuft, Fructifier, Giver of Life, Goddess of Moisture, Green Goddess, Lady of Green Crops, Mistress of the Earth, She of Green Wings and Crescent Moon, Lotus-bearing   WikiIsis

 

Brief

One of the more popular gods of the Egyptian pantheon.  Her following spread throughout the greco-roman civilization until the clampdown on paganism.  That uncomfortable looking thing on top of her head is the symbol of the throne.  Check out this video Wings of Isis

She is still popular.  I found the shrine on the right on eBay.  It was bid up to $45.

Wonder Woman

Does anyone remember the Wonder Woman series popular in the ’70s with Linda  Carter as the star?  The series was based on Isis.  At well over 6′ she was perfect for the role. That’s all she did however, there wasn’t much demand for someone who dwarfed John Wayne.  Her golden lariat which would force someone to speak the truth is straight out of Isis.  And how about that invisible car.  (this is actually a crystal lexis, every time I tried to put a black background on Wonder Woman’s car it disappeared) There’s a lot of bling available for wonder woman.

Ishtar

Posted in Godesses with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 15, 2010 by ellocogringo

Bigger than the mountains am I,
The Empress of the gods am I
The Queen of heaven am I
The earth’s mistress am I

Babylonian/Assyrian Goddess of love, fertility and war.  Personally I think she’s the same as Isis. The theme of Ishtar is common in bellydancing.  Below is a clip.  bellydance comes in different genres.  The first is gothic, The second is “wings of Ishtar”, and the third is traditional.  Do not pass up this clip, these gals are awesome.

BDSuprstars BellyQueen BDGothic IshtarBellyDancers

I’ve been to the mid east and seen these things.  Mostly tawdry affairs, a bunch of hard legs feeling up the dancers.  The dancers were mostly widows, in islam, if a woman is “soiled” or has no man to take care of her, she must go into prostitution, dancing or starve.  But allah loves them.  In Cairo I went to a couple of hotel and saw a higher quality, mostly Italian and East European.   Still not up to what you see in the west.  The best come from Sao Paulo followed closely  by NY

“A question that sometimes drives me hazy: am I or are the others crazy?” – Big Al Big Al Quotes

WALTER is now ready to address Big Al’s question. Those who follow me will know what when WALTER speaks, walt and el Loco Gringo have reached consensus. The “best answer to date” of the right algorithm has been set on the left algorithm as a shortcut.

Previously I have spoken of idiots and non-idiots. Idiots are simple, they have the Brain Fart, a debilitating mental condition that prevents them from using their whole brain. Idiots are the norm.

Non-idiots is a more complicated topic, or maybe not. They can always be insane, of course. Let’s pull them out of consideration, to be dealt with later. I am uncomfortable with defining something by what it is not. Non-idiots is cumbersome. Centered is better but it has spiritual overtones which may not be necessarily appropriate. In like manner whole brain thinking has sectarian overtones which also may not be necessarily appropriate. Balanced puts the whole discussion inside the skull, also inappropriate. Yoga puts it outside. The same can be said of all the words used to describe this condition, each being only a partial answer, and viewed as a deviation from the norm. Tao is close.

So this is the way the minds are supposed to work, balancing input to achieve optimal execution. It is not the non-idiot who is an aberration, but the idiot. A non-idiot is able to access his essense whatever that may be, unique for each individual. If you deal with life in the spiritual realm, it is being able to access that little bit of God that is within us all. If you deal with life in the secular realm, it is being able to access that little bit of the universe that is within us all. They are, after all, the same thing. So Big Al is normal.

And to Big Al, the others are crazy, you are Normal




Shekinah

Posted in Godesses with tags , , , on June 12, 2010 by ellocogringo

The deposed Christian goddess

“God transcends religion, religion doesn’t transcend God”

Shakinah means “presence of God” and relates to the feminine aspect of the Holy Trinity. It is the energy that sanctifies from within the dimension of matter or the Holy Spirit. Shekinah is the visible manifestation of the divine presence. One place within the Old Testament it appeared as the cloud that followed the children of Isreal in the desert.

Try to maintain temporal awareness. In 325AD at the council of Nicea, Christianity was de-feminized. Constantine viewed the church as a method to unify the Roman Empire by turning the populace into golems. (robots hadn’t been invented yet) Father and mother god (Yahweh and Shekinah) were replaced with Father, son and holy spirit (a neutered Shekinah). Crystal Links Has an excellent discussion on the evolution of Shekinah as a concept, although oddly they stopped right before the Deicide at Nicea. The explanation given is bullshit. The council was convened to de-feminize christianity so as to control the masses. (ensure that the hyper-males received primacy in the poon-tang and banana receiving department) The book of Mary I and II were removed as was the gospel of St Peter. Thus what is described as a mono-theistic religion is in fact a mono-mind religion (shut down the right mind). What do you call that? Devine Gynocide? No, Deicide – The act of killing a god, God had been murdered. And christianity did it.

Here’s some of what they didn’t want you to know.

Shekinah a.k.a. the Hebrew Shachan, Schechinah, Matrona, etc. (“to reside”) – the cabalistic feminine aspect of God, a.k.a. the Holy Bride; the female manifestation of God in man, the divine indwelling (inwohnung).

The Shekinah was said to have appeared to Moses in the burning bush. The Shekinah also descended in the pillar of smoke that guided the Israelites through the desert.

The Shekinah rested on Mount Sinai when the Ten Commandments were given to the children of Israel. Oops! Got a slight problem here, the Israelites didn’t speak english. No wonder they were confused when given the 12 (or 14 or 17, but at least 12) commandments. commandments Hammurabi

The Talmud teaches that the Shekinah is everywhere. The Shekinah Glory Meaning the very presence of God, is obliquely referred to in the bible, often portrayed as a pillar of flame or smoke. Said to be some scary shit. Hmmm! Arc of the covenent I’ve got my own take on this, I think that what is being described is what is known as nirvana, a direct access to the right mind. Here’s a first hand description of the Shekinah Glory Stroke of insight Found here> Chrysalis This will save you years of translating english translations of latin translations of greek translations of hebrew translations of aramaic translations of what’s happening. In case you’re curious, This is what Jesus thought on the topic, Nicea being far in the future. (try to maintain your temporal awareness). I’ve read Mary I and II which show Jesus to be a pain in the ass normal kid. I can picture, “Jesus, get your butt back in the house or I’ll have Joseph beat it when he gets back home. And quit with the miracles, you’re scaring the neighbors. Quit playing with them Philistines” It seems clear that the philistines are todays Palestinians, This definition from the urban dictionary. “You, sir, are a philistine, a member of the “great unwashed” and of a boorish or barbarous nature. Even the visigoths wouldn’t have them over. QED clip here> JC Superstar Entire Jesus Christ Superstar here> JCSS

And, as always the erudite and eloquent omniscient, all seeing, all knowing and ever so humble maharishi emeritus el Loco Gringo has once again tied it all in together. The ANN can. So, in the christian world, Shekinah is the inner child. The right minds perception of the universe (or GOD if you prefer). The Anomie of man is due to her absence (in the west) The “hole in the soul” This is the RBT, the Religious Brain Fart, the inability to spiritualize.

Do not mis-interpret what I am saying as an indictment of christianity. If you are comfortable in using christianity as a neuron trellis to expand your awareness of the universe, feel free to use the word god, it’s the same concept. Just do not allow religion to get between you and God. Remember, there is a little bit of God within you. If you’re going to use this framework, communicate directly. If religion comes into conflict with your awareness of God, go with God. Jesus was a messenger with a vision on knowing God as Einstein was a messenger in knowing the universe. They were both working on the same phenomenon. Just using different words.

This is the error in atheism. Athiesm is, in and of itself, a dogma, a religion if you will. No different than any of the others. There is a GOD but god is inside the skull. If you want to see GOD look out the window. If you want to see god look inside. Athiests confuse religion for god. (if she hasn’t been replaced by religion) She is Tabool

Wicca

Posted in Godesses with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 1, 2010 by ellocogringo


Do what you will, but harm no one


 

 

 

 

Another “Mother Earth” type of belief.  I guess you could call it neo-aboriginal European.  Wicca (pronounced [ˈwɪkə]) is a neopagan, nature-basedreligion.[1] It was popularised in 1954 by Gerald Gardner, a retiredBritish civil servant, who at the time called it a “Witch cult” and “Witchcraft”, and its adherents “the Wica”.[2] “Wicca is the largest of the Neopagan religions. Wiccans have great reverence for the Earth and for their Goddess and her consort, the horned God. Their main rule of behavior is the Wiccan Rede which forbids them from harming people, including themselves, except in some cases of self-defense.“- Wikepedia
“Contrary to what those who choose to persecute or lie about us wish to believe, Wicca is a very peaceful, harmonious and balanced way of thinking and life which promotes oneness with the divine and all which exists. Wicca is a deep appreciation and awe in watching the sunrise or sunset, the forest in the light of a glowing moon, a meadow enchanted by the first light of day.   It is the morning dew on the petals of a beautiful flower, the gentle caress of a warm summer breeze upon your skin, or the warmth of the summer sun on your face.   Wicca is the fall of colorful autumn leaves, and the softness of winter snow.   It is light, and shadow and all that lies in between.  It is the song of the birds and other creatures of the wild.   It is being in the presence of Mother Earths nature and being humbled in reverence.

When we are in the temple of the Lord and Lady, we are not prone to the arrogance of human technology as they touch our souls.   To be a Witch is to be a healer, a teacher, a seeker, a giver, and a protector of all things.   If this path is yours, may you walk it with honor, light and integrity.”- Herne

What Wicca is not

God is dead

god is dead

But not GOD

Religion killed Her

Centering then is the awareness of god, not the bullshit de-feminized god of christianity but the awareness that we are an integral part of the universe.  Whether you call her the big hoochie koochie,  Cosmic standing wave, spacial forcing, divine cosmic awareness, gaia, mother earth, azna doesn’t matter.  Centering is our connectedness with the universe.  Christianity has robbed us of the ability to experience god for ourselves

god has been murdered   Christianity killed her.

Tabooed Nude

Posted in Godesses with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 28, 2009 by ellocogringo


Why is the nude taboo? Return to Feminine God

When Thinking of clothes the first thought that comes to mind is protection against the weather. Well, OK, maybe.

Or maybe it’s because the guys won’t get a lot of work done with naked women running around. That’s better. But maybe it’s to keep the males from seeing the primacy of femaleness.

Don’t really know where I’m going with this. I’ve seen a lot of things that don’t seem to add up. For instance; In Singapore my secretary (Thai) kept doing these aerobic exercises when she wasn’t otherwise busy. When I asked, she responded she couldn’t afford a breast implant “But why? You’re Thai, You’re supposed to be flat cheasted.” (orientals are flat chested unless nursing) But she didn’t want to look like a yokel fresh out of the rice paddies. She was in a western society and the desire to get her bumps pumped had more to do with wanting to appear “civilized” rather than vanity. S’poreBumpPumpers

It’s a big business there. They also sell a lot of silicone brasseries which they call “over the shoulder bolder holsters“. S’pore is also the capital of sex change operations. A male transformed into a female is called a shemale. Believe it or not, these are all men.

There was even a local movie made “Bugis Street”. Prostitutes are called “china girls” and belong to a union PUSSI, Prostitutes United for Sexual Services Inc. This place will definitely scramble your ideas on sex.

In rural areas of Indonesia women typically walk around topless. In fact they are distinctly uncomfortable when required to wear a top. In african muslim areas they will go topless and wear a veil. Even among women the awrah (area between the navel and the knees) must be covered. Weird shit man.
