SHADOWS

god shadow

“The history of mankind seems blanketed in a simultaneous state of amnesia and deja vu. The ruins of ancient civilizations whisper a reminder that we have forgotten everything we knew.

A multitude of gods have shown themselves like shadows in the halls of history. We know not yet, except by our own observation and decision, which of them is real. We are betrayed by those who teach us that we must trust the Wizards of the West. While pretentious politicians defend the castles of the Witch, the media monkeys swarm to spin perverted lies to cover up their covert tricks.

The voiceless bones of wonderful wizards have dissolved to mortal dust once more. Their words have vanished in the smoke of sacred libraries, searing our souls with the stupefying stench of wisdom lost forever in their flames. From day to day the timeworn treadmill of survival forces us to worship at the soulless bankers’ shrine. Gold is still the god of the great and powerful Oz.

The Oz Factors, by Lawrence R. SpencerWe have crash-landed in a twisted alien landscape of pain and mortality, far away from our home Universe. As a race we have amnesia. We are repeatedly bumped on the head by the recurring cataclysmic upheavals of a planet whirling in space like a farmhouse in a tornado.

The future is an extension of the present. We must live our lives in the present in a manner which will create the greatest good for the greatest number of beings in the future. If we are aware of our own past lives, we must also be aware that we are creating our own future by our present actions. We will inherit our own legacy.

As Professor Marvel points out with simple eloquence, “There are no other wizards…”

We are apparently the only wizards there ever were and the only wizards that ever will be. We are each a part of a time track of the past, present and future of our own creation, individually and collectively.

If we let the Wicked Witches run the culture now, they will be in charge of the place when we come back. Just as we are the descendants of past generations, you and I may very well become, through reincarnation, the children of our children–we are the future generations who will inherit the environmental and cultural conditions of the future which we ourselvesSupport independent publishing: Buy this book on Lulu. are creating today.”

FEY: SPIRITS OF THE AIR

Faery Land

“There is a difference between this world and the world of Faery, but it is not immediately perceptible. Everything that is here is there, but the things that are there are better than those that are here. All things that are bright are there brighter. There is more gold in the sun and more silver in the moon of that land. There is more scent in the flowers, more savour in the fruit. There is more comeliness in the men and more tenderness in the women. Everything in Faery is better by this one wonderful degree, and it is by this betterness you will know that you are there if you should ever happen to get there.”
― James StephensIrish Fairy Tales

The word fairy derives from the term fae of medieval Western European (Old French, from Latin fata: Fate) folklore and romance, one famous example being Morgan le Fay (‘Morgan of the Fae’). “Fae-ery” was therefore everything that appertains to the “fae”, and so the land of “fae”, all the “fae”. Finally the word replaced its original and one could speak of “a faery or fairy”, though the word fey is still used as an adjective or to refer to the word fairy as a plural.

In alchemy in particular they were regarded as elementals, such as gnomes and sylphs, as described by Paracelsus. This is uncommon in folklore, but accounts describing the fairies as “spirits of the air” have been found popularly.  Many of the Irish tales of the Tuatha Dé Danann refer to these beings as fairies, though in more ancient times they were regarded as Goddesses and Gods.

When considered as beings that a person might actually encounter, fairies were noted for their mischief and malice. Some pranks ascribed to them, such as tangling the hair of sleepers into “Elf-locks”, stealing small items or leading a traveler astray, are generally harmless. But far more dangerous behaviors were also attributed to fairies. Any form of sudden death might stem from a fairy kidnapping, with the apparent corpse being a wooden stand-in with the appearance of the kidnapped person.

Fairies can be observed when the “third eye” is activated.

 

WHERE DO “GODS” COME FROM?

religious professional
Where do “the gods” come from?  Throughout the history of human civilization on Earth their have existed many thousands of gods.  It can be observed that there are as many “gods” as there are people to “believe” in them.  And, it can be observed that every sentient being is “a god” with the god-like ability of create and perceive their own “universe”.
But, who are the professional creators of “gods”?  Who earns a living by persuading other people to give them money to “intercede” between a “believer” and “the god, or gods” created by a “religious professional”?   Self-appointed and self-anointed priests, ministers, shaman, channelers, seers, sooth-sayers, prophets, druid, flamen, hoodoo, lama, magus, priest-doctor, votary, etc., each share a common “calling”:  to act as a “representative” of “god”.   There have been thousands of organized religious groups in history.  Each of these groups are formed and administered, and profit from the “business” of religion.
More wars have been fought, more lives have been destroyed and more ignorance and superstition have been created, taught and enforced in the name of a “god” than all other sources combined.  Factually, ever war in a religious war.  Every nation fighting in wars is “blessed” by priests, and “protected” by a “god”.  The combatants of many wars (World War 1 and World War II) are “blessed” by the same priests and the same “god”.  Apparently, war is “good business” of “religious professionals” and “gods”.
The traditional duties and practices of the “religious professional” is to CREATE mythology, lies, half-truths, superstition, fear and mystery in order to CONTROL the “believer”.  Without control they cannot pay their bills, feed themselves, buy expensive costumes, build enormously ornate monuments to inspire awe and fear of the “gods” they have created.  Of course all of these activities are smothered in AESTHETICS.  Beauty is the most effect enticement and trap for the “believer”.  Think about out it….  Beautiful music, ceremonies, buildings, symbols, costumes, mythology, illusions, angels, ascended masters, the beautiful “afterlife”, etc., etc….
In the so-called New Age, it is conceived that every individual is an immortal being or  the “a god”.  Therefor, you can form your own organization, be your own priest and “believe” in your self.  You can even start a war and kill other “gods” or “believers” if they don’t “believe” in you!
However, if you want to be a “god” on Earth you will need to write a “religious text” so other people can read it and be indoctrinated “believe” in you, and adopt you as their god.  There are hundreds of “religious texts” written by self-appointed “religious professionals”.  Usually these texts, like the Bible, were written a very long time ago by “anonymous” or unknown authors who the “religious professionals” insist are “the word of Our God, the ONLY god”.  In fact, all gods are the “Only God”, depending on which “religious professional” you consult.
Obviously, this must be very easy to do as so many billions of people want to “believe” in a “god”, but not in themselves as a “god”.  This is very sad.  However, it can be very profitable for self-appointed “religious professional” whose vocation is to convince you that YOU are NOT a “god”.  If you want to “believe” in a “god”, save yourself a lot of time, money and stupidity:  believe in YOURSELF!

RED RISING REVIEW

Republished by Blog Post Promoter

red rising“The Red Rising Trilogy is an epic Macho Cinderella Story. The story and characters are eloquently sculpted from well-weathered egalitarian clichés of Star-Wars-Hunger-Game-Of-Thrones post-apocalyptic-peasant-revolts set in a high-tech ultra-hierarchal-Greco-Roman-space-opera-society.  Brilliant prose, plot twists and legions of antagonists are collectively dedicated to dystopian gore, guts and glory of gold-obsessed class-based blood feuds wherein the purposelessness of human life is to learn to love pain and power.

Predictably, The “Golden Couple” get married and live happily ever after, as most human fantasy stories aspire… getting married, having babies, living in a castle, served and lauded by the peasants is a “happy ending”.

The unwritten story, as usual, is that humans all die, inevitably, with nostalgic finality to seek their reward in “The Veil”.

This trilogy is perfect Hollywood film fodder for servants of money-motivated vested interests of the planetary power elite. The subservient classes: Red, Pinks, Browns etc., will spend their minimum wages in theaters by the shovel full to wallow in the “beautiful dramatic pain” of egalitarian dreams crushed in the subterranean mines of Mars.

Sadly, the genius of Pierce Brown as a masterful wordsmith and epic storyteller is wasted on repeating the same worn out “Hero Epic” story line recycled ad nausea since the days of Homer. Humans live in painful servitude until they die to be rewarded in the “afterlife”.  All in a blink of the eye for the soulless of “gods” who worship power and gold.

Where have all the Immortals gone?  Buried in the gory-damn dust of impossible dreams.
