Are you moving on? Have you gotten past your daily ritualized thought patterns? Have you got past what you think about others, yourself, perhaps even me? If not, why so? What is at the reason as to intangible preconceptions, of mistreating your view of reality? Does having a strong relationship with what is other than yourself play a part still? Or are, contrarily, the bodily pleasures and Laveyan "lustful pursuits" the sole driving factor? Have you questioned core beliefs, if you have any that is. Speaking of the mind, reality and our approval of self affirming ideas too often destructive, what have we come to agree on? This is most important. We all know as well as I know, what many here for instance, do not agree with when it comes to questioning reality and universal constructs, which of course vary fluidly and with a precision well past our human capabilities. To try and understand truth, however we have come to think of it, requires we ALL agree on this premise or foundational agreement, if you'd like, that none of us are the answer to absolute knowledge, or ultimate reality. But we may be the path in which higher states of knowledge are more attainable. Science or no science, this must be soundly understood as a general maxim. This way, no one is essentially over riding or egotistically curtailing what any given one of us may have worked and continue working quite diligently and patiently towards. I believe to have, in a figure of speaking, a religious relationship with Nature - capitalized as I do believe it to be a living entity, a deity of a kind, as any cosmic or physical entity has the potential to become. Now I'm not speaking of any de facto religious belief, not Pantheism nor Syncretism. Either philosophies run counter logical aside from their botttled world views of nature and cosmic reality. That nature, as a living deity, a manifestation of god, is all powerful, all knowing and ever present is simply paganizing, in effect, a traditional Christian doctrine. Though some religious mysticism is of course pagan rooted, as rituals in Catholicism are noted to be in accordance with Mary and repitious mantras, same could be said for Tibetan Buddhism. However, nothing is especially unique about Pantheism. While though somehwhat resonating with it's emphasis on self renewal through cyclical changes of fertility and meditational stillness, a purer approach to living, though still too general. Syncretism fails miserably at ethical rationalism. While this isn't entirely the point of it, the amalgamated applications of Syncretic thought has far reaching spiritual tenets, such as Astro Theology and the Cosmic Christ or in other new age vetting, Christ Consciousness. While not foundationally wrong, it has a style of over conflating profane metaphysical knowlege while attenuating verified astronomic findings amid true and tried hard data. Nothing is absolutely invaluable. In this respect, I feel as if though skeptical inquiries are as fitting and necessary for psychology and psychiatric teachings, as necessary as they are and have been for bogus faith doctrines, many of which are marked by horrific inadequacy and inhumane Biblical literalism. There is no immoderate or moderate with fundamental religious groups, they are right in what they do no matter what.
The big rub, also lies in medicine and it's growing vapidity for understanding inherent value of human nature. Like the military, like religion, like new age groups, it can be effectively garnered as a weapon of mind control or at best a continuance of tabboo contraceptive, when placed in the wrong hands time and time again. We must grow to love rationally, to aid and assist other with fair thinking, but not forget to fight when needed, and when needed, to make it count, to make it worth doing again when necessary and practical for preservation. That we should not ever turn to lethal force is another modus operandi by the current falsehoods of our political masters. We have to each be more self reliant and learn what it really means to be self reliant, a lot champion what they are never willing to back up. To fit in or to be the antagonist, there are cowardly minded dull witted figures from all walks of life. Not to say protests and rioting is the way to go. Those who have any ultimate motive against the establishment are as deluded as those flagrantly promoting anarchism as some such solution in hand.
We see that many pharmacutical corporations and their abiding psychiatric firms are no better than modern henchmen making a living from enslaving healthy minded communities with abbhorent chemical alterations. There is no end to how insanely dehumanizing some of these people continue to be. Now granted there are also growing numbers of nearly incurable addicts and criminally minded dirtbags who have no intention whatsoever of "quitting their dayjob", in other words, of ceasing their drug or abuse related problems. The most ethical way of dealing with such people has to be by strict measures, as I've been in psychiatry offices and see exactly what the procedures generally consist of. There is no questionable behavior to attending AA an NA groups many would go ahead thinking. But is this so? What are the cancerous underpinnings to why people seemingly can never quell their addictions? Once you're on medications, for many people, you loose culpability and only cope with what you believe is the only answer to your drug or aclohol laden lifestyle or once lifestye. When you are successfuly subdued you probably wont mind eating fast food with multiple atrocious effects on your internal and external health. Once you are mindless enough to eat like shit, other manipulations aren't very difficult to instill from higher up authority figures, who aren't having to even try at that point; we no less need such authorities in life for without any opposition there would be no way to reason or way to have an orderly life, we'd all be dead. Though a horribly immoral mistake is being made when normal thinking folks are waking up braindead, talk and act braindead during the day at work, and go to sleep more or less just as braindead. Hard to face, is it? You wouldn't put it that way would you? Well, I don't mind the risking factor, when it could be what in turn helps to save people in the future. Not to fulfill any paranoid cliches such as "but they know I know" or "I know they know that I know". That is why the simplest, by the book solutions are invariable to this day, and implemented tirelessly by those haranguing from seats of power.
The other big rub, however, is that I have a love of psychology and even, to greater or lesser degrees, psychiatry. The admiration I have is as such to where it more often than not undermines either extreme of conservative rallying or conspiracy hack theories that appeal to hyper self conscious and insecure crowds. At one time I had strongly considered to make a living being a life coach, as they are generally called these days. I admire the psychology schools and those daring enough to change minds in these often confabulatory and pop star entrenched media thinking. Much of my background, as dealing in the Satanic climes of discoursing, is very Freudian and Sociologically based, while I personally prefer Jung as richer and more dynamic in his understanding of the manifold projections or archetypes of the primal mind (a many layered mind could be posited, analagous to a multidimensonal universe, I'd like to think) and not because he is honored as a holistic psychiatrist, commonly dealt among natureopathy physicians. The other big rub is that psychology, as a whole, when understood at an inherently beneficial level, an innately creative level, can be effective as any other system of deprogramming. This must be seen as a purely productive trade in that sense, not unevenly ethical or against our greatest potential, as many would cynically imply from the seat of superego steered thinking. The Id being the libido which gives the ego a self assumed identity to rationalize, inference and apply thereunto what befits it's thinking, and the superego being the protective, overly dominant and more perniciously moralizing, when judiciously asserted becomes schizmatic in one's personality. An intellectual and moral tumor if you will. We intellectualize because we are scared not to. We must know on some deeper scope that we are more than dignified animals, that purpose and free will must not be abstained or absolved. For what isn't right in the world and in our very own lives of battling futile odds, we seek reconciliation, a sense of superior belonging.
Lastly, we should, for the sake of one another, despite casms of conflicting opinions, which pass as meaning filled observations, for douchbaggery never goes far without factualizing a mere opinion or observance - no matter the seeming relevance of supra ehthical constructs of cosmic archetypes, overseeing and wanking on us pitiful tight wads, no matter the imperative of moral relativism that many secretly obey, grow up, move on, live to die to
what has claimed you.
There is a lot weighing us down in the modern world today. We forget about the earth, the goddess in and around us all. We forget that she is in us and us in her. We abuse the earth and in turn she permits us to abuse eachother and ourselves. What is the reason behind this? Are natural disasters simply a tear in the heart of mother nature, where in exchange openly wreaking mass chaos and cataclysmic after affects. The earth is a living being, a breathing, feeling soul. Like us, she is imbued with masculine and feminine. Like us, earth has chakras and astral bodies. It has been reputed that the earth has at least three of these bodies sustaining it's permeable energy fields and it's solid internal clockwork. We have been so far adrift from what has been there all this time. Yes, there are geographers and paleontoligists who believe that their evidence is all they need to explain natural phenomena. Though many are still riddled by the their facts not lining up congruently with how certain disruptions occur. The chaotic forces underlying our earth's activity are not entirely understood, not by a long shot, in truth. You see, there are such things as confirmation biases in science, even in the so called hard sciences. If you had put any real time into studying neurochemistry, astronomy, any biological sciences, it'll prove surefire tough to stomach and it wont be opaque as to why you are puzzled. Though many will unflinchinlgy continue to propose they have the facts before any other solution comes in to challenge the secular propositions that withstand the most heat and critisism successfully. Now to step onto the subject of archetypes for a moment, on the topic of guides, spiritual guides. I personally believe in spirit guides, both animal and higher entity/angelic. Though I'm not fancifully recreating what I believe their roles should be. That makes quite a difference in what I have seen or believed to have experienced.
I likewise believe in an astral body, an etheric body, perhaps many, upto seven or more. It's never been illogical to believe in a tutelary spirit, as many great thinkers, inventors and composers, since time immemorial have more or less had a penchant for tapping into the elusive forces behind our often befogged faculties, crudely perceiving of the world's relevance to time, matter, motion, causation and transcendence, give or take. I'm sure many of you hve heard of the recurring universe theories, the eternal or expanding universe models of physics. Some have gone back hundreds of years, a lot has been paletized for the modern minds of those most befit for physical sciences and the upgrades in logical perpetuity. Current time physics, however, must not loose sight of the subtleties that ensheath a lot of the core facts of the universe. The expanding universe purports a theory that could very well prove immortality to be a reachable state of being, an attainable level of consciousness. Through the assemblage of inherent truths and universe tested facts, often seemingly impossible to imagine realities could be at the snap of the wrists. Now it has been said that many great minds, the daring and dissuaded by conventional notions of methodology, have been able to continually tap into these infinitely interspersing layers, but without consciously doing so. In other words, they may have unconsciously accesed unknown intelligence of our galaxies, quite possibly glimpsing undiscovered intelligent cosmic formations.
What many personalities that are rougher and prone to agressive body language follow is their belief in a wrathful and vengeance seeking God, though this isn't always due to a stringent faith based personality. Some have a perpetuated defense complex up at mostly all times, despite irrational fears or legitimate personal concerns. Those, for instance, into daily meditations and yoga are much quieter and calmer in disposition. They would take to a spirit guide and angel visitations, but not in the doom and gloom prophetic sense that often obtrusive religious folks display - and quite unashamedly at times not to mention. Those with a bolstered faith in their one true Lord believe in the archetypal shielding images of guardian angels, whereas those who have an anscestral connection, a bountiful enthusiasm for nature and fertility, do not resonate very well with, dare I say, pallid and loosely fitting depictions of their spiritual protection. For those resonating with animal guides such as Celts and Native Americans are mostly known for, then the heroic angel imagery is more of a bastardization of the profane powers of nature, of the sacred lineage connecting awareness of ancestry to our material senses. There are also psychological reasons behind this. It's fair to assert that most people in a general sense, do not have to rely on spirit guides to go grocery shopping, or for a visit to their local hairdresser. Unless of course, your barber is a total spaz with a pair of shears, by all means pray for your angels to save your sorry ass from permanet scaring. Though I'd personally call a lawyer and milk a lawsuit, but that doesn't matter for this explanation.
On another note dealing with archetypal imprints, it must be understood that there is more than neural and synaptic stimuli that work to arouse our reaction or inaction and behavioral responses. For instance, what we think of as perceiving negative energy might just as well come from subconscious conditioning from our past experiences with fork tongued people and irascible rebel rousers. There are als trigger words that when said have an immediate correlation to our subconscious. You may associate vouerism with an intrinsic aversion, while someone else might have a similar avoidance response to a casual night out on the town, repelled by the conditioning to see normal events as not worth while and banal for their personality type. The "I'm above the crowd" sort of withdrawl. The superego has the largest role or say in such activity from the subconscious to external translations. Those with heavy religious conditioning backgrounds have what could be thought of as integrated abnormality or simply abnormal integration. These are behaviorisms that went on unable to be remitted or toned down, appearing as paranoid to see apparations when in a otherwise normal or routine scenario. The devil in the closet is a subconscious trigger people use to explain what is beyond their physical paramaters of natural logic, as when reliant for extended periods of time on superstitious thinking, this is practically inescapable.
What I'm getting at here, is that you are taken to be more incompetent than you might actually be - you could possess a lot of knowledge and capability for all I know, right? - when you feel that no matter what your darling angels will come to save the day no matter how serious and mortal the danger is. If immanent danger strikes, you should have a clear cut and hands on way of dealing with whatsoever arises, which more than likely requires abandoning magical thinking for however long. Whether or not hand to hand combat is needed or secondary is another matter. To have a definite awareness of that which other people are at best vaguely aware of, does single you out, there's no denying it. Nothing at all to foster worry or guilt over, but to know the obvious little social cues never hurts. Now back to the archetype talk. You shouldn't have to think too long nor too hard about why practicioners of their craft use terminology like Lady Goddess or the Great Mother. They are being said in a reverence and adoration to a supra personal power. Simple enough, but isn't that also a tautology? Even to proclaim Mother Earth as an overseeing divine creation, when you don't need to reinstate the fact that it's clearly female and ever more powerful than mostly anyone single person alive.
Those of us who believe we have had considerable development in countless past incarnations, have a deep seated love but a haunting distrust for mainstream and patriarchal religious institutions. I believe I've had a number of lives before this, but many where on this or a place closely resembling this Earth. I have a lot of material infatuations as much as I do spiritual. There is alot I get caught up and carried away with. I'm pretty certain a few people have had to read my writings on this site and think "If you think you're so special and care not of this community, then why post so many journals, why waste your time on a place you think so little of?" Or something along those lines. Well, firsty I'd rather post my writing here than on facebook or some dulled down hipster hub, not to mention you never know who may come across liking my work and want to know more about me out of genuine curiosity, not egotistical inquiries to get their head above water.
