I generally post things I find interesting or useful from friends and other blogs, but I’ve had a conversation recently in a chat group that I feel addresses something the wider community needs to be aware of.
I do not channel, am not even sure I completely understand channeling. Nor am I privy to insiders, spies, collaborators or other fascinating beings of the inner workings of our power and control based world domination systems.
I’m just a scholar confined primarily to a bed with a head full of stuff and time to think about it, and read more stuff; and a spiritual seeker who has spent a lifetime of work to discover and understand “reality”. (Robert Anton Wilson once said that word should ALWAYS be in quotes and I do believe I agree;-)
What I write comes from a combination of my own connection to my “higher self”, to the awen, Universe, Creator and whatever your favorite label is for spiritual and gut instinct understanding and my own extensive schooling, research, reading and and perception.
I have spent many years working on the ideas presented in Robert Anton Wilson’s Prometheus Rising in order to escape the box society builds us into as we grow up. Like fish and water, most never even become aware that they are in a box.
Worldview creates reality so giving someone else the right to create your reality seems a bit lazy doesn’t it? and dangerous really.
What if someone creates your reality, programs you with the reality as per your society that killing people in another country while in the military is helpful and good. It “protects” those you love.
So you do it.
Then you find out, they were innocent and you were killing them to help some corporations make more money, to help some corrupt folks stay in power, or some other equally ridiculous “reason”.
So how would you feel about that? Perhaps you could ask one of the many many soldiers stuck in mental institutions, or the private hell of ptsd at home after honorably serving their countries in imperialist wars of aggression against the innocent.
I’ve known and loved quite a few of them, and from my observations they did not feel really good about it at all. Most felt so bad about it that they are no longer alive.
As you might guess this influenced my opinion.
With weapons, killing is fairly easy to do-as many Americans are quite happy to tell you. My own grandma sent me an email the other day mocking me and others who believe in nonviolence, and attempting to crow in a humorous fashion about how cool people who carry guns out of fear and shoot people in the street are.
As you can likely tell, I don’t agree. Killing is easy indeed, too easy. But it leaves a scar on the soul of the killer. The blood that won’t wash off, from Macbeth; the beating of the tell tale heart, are not just metaphors for criminal guilt.
They are literary devices to show that scar, that energy and spirit weeping wound in the soul, that no amount of cultural conditioning or bravado can hide or heal.
What has that got to with Drake, you are asking? Quite a bit, but I speak and write like an asperger druid, in lengthy spirals, that if you can follow, may lead you a new understanding, not just a new piece of information. Many can’t or have no interest in following, and that is why this blog is primarily reprints;-)
The location of the conversation about Drake’s post is a chat group based on spiritual growth, co-creating “a world that works for everyone”/fixing what is wrong with our planet, and the theory/process of “ascension”.
Obviously since worldview creates reality, many of us live in quite different worlds from each other even tho we appear to live in the same world.
This conversation as I see it, is about what kind of world you want to live in.
Ascension is a process, said to be related to our crossing the Galactic equator per the Mayan prophecies at the end of this year. It is said to be a physical and spiritual process, but beyond that opinions differ pretty wildly.
Before I started reading some blogs several years ago, I had never heard the word ascension except in the bible, and so had no opinion at all. Now I find it, if nothing else, a handy tool for looking at the changes we need to make as a society, as a planet and as individuals in order to improve our world, fix the things that are wildly wrong, and manage to survive as species.
I don’t like to create a new box to replace the one I escaped and cling tightly to its walls for protection. I am usually pretty comfortable accepting uncertainty. I don’t know for sure what will happen, how it will happen or how long it will take.
I don’t need someone to predict, or reassure me. What I believe is that everything is alive, awake and aware. EVERYTHING.
From the muons that last milliseconds at fermilab, to the Universe itself and everything in between. Humans are no smarter, or better or more special than anything else.
What humans are tho, are creatures that think, speak, write and analyze as well as act. Because those things are part of what humans do and are, many of us feel that we can use these things to improve humanity, ourselves, our lives and our planet instead of destroying it, one another and every living thing we get near.
The trick comes in that there appear to be as many opinions of how to do that as there are humans.
And this, finally, brings us to Drake. Drake, if you haven’t heard of him, is a man who has been making announcements about a formerly secret (but now splattered all over the internet) plan to take out the folks otherwise known as the cabal, the illuminati, the new world order or just the bad guys who have been running our planet thru subterfuge, wealth, corruption and general nastiness. (and shape shifting lizards in some worldviews but I’m not going there;-)
In the world view this plan is part of, the world is a real dog eat dog place. Violence is just a necessary part of life. If bad guys are running the place you have to use their methods(tear down the master’s house using the master’s tools ala Audre Lourde) and bring parts of the military, federal marshals and some militias with guns and arrest them.
Before I get into how my worldview differs I would like to point out that even in the worldview where violence is necessary, announcing your military intentions toward people with superior firepower and control of governing structures is generally NOT considered a great battle tactic.
I assume that the endless rambling in public forums and internet radio shows must be some sort of feint or diversion, unless it is plain old disinformation.
I am treating it as genuine and sincere since I am a big fan of NVC(non violent communication).
Now that you know where I am coming from, and what I am writing about you can decide if you want to move on and read part 2. 😉
