Stream of ConsciousnessTwo…

April 14, 2012

Greetings,

Friday the 13th, terrace, sun-Set (Horus Rises, Set Sets… see? That right there is the whole Osiris, Isis, Horus and Set game, right there…. Game, SET and Match…….)……Hours come from Horus too….I digress…. pandemonium in the background. Some festival is on and it is somehow felt appropriate to blare vulgarity packed songs on poor, ripped or worse, old conical loudspeakers in beseeching/pleasing the gods.

But of course, as soon as I switched on, they turned it wayyyyyyyyy down. Yet, the die was cast, it was Friday the 13th, pivotal date, so much history, so much fear, both rational and other-wise….Knights Templar, Subterfuge, Intrigue, Church Politics, French Nationalism, Secret Socities…. all rolled in to this date….

So here we go, Click on the link below: 40 even minutes again, what do you know…

 StreamofConsciousnesstoo……

Religion has been on my mind…. to get out of it’s loop of programmed sub-missiveness….and more difficult still, a retreat away from images as Deity Incarnate….I have surrounded myself with awesome, deitic art. Larger than life, full colour….. 🙂

Like this Shiv, always in my right eye and the Kali below straight ahead. Snakes everywhere, artistic and other-wise….

Mahakaal

Mahakaal

and peering in from his Right, the triple headed, Tripura Sundari, the beauty of the three worlds, swallowing a serpent, slicing the ego…

Tripura Sundari Kaali

Tripura Sundari Kaali

These are Powerful Symbols. Carry an old resonance.

And yet, they entrap us in a vision of the supreme, rather limiting don’t you think?

It’s a good struggle for me. These kinds of struggles bring growth, depth.

Do let me know?

😉

In truth…

Vivek

    The Gospel of Thomas

    40) Jesus said, “A grapevine has been planted outside of the
    Father, but being unsound, it will be pulled up by its roots and
    destroyed.”

    Vivek, Symbols at this level are the objects themselves in other forms, (not the jargon) avatar. Kali and Shiva are not supreme visions, they are existence and time, beyond which is the begining. Each symbol approached and understood takes us to the level beyond, and then to the point of nothingness, where existence, time, illusion, collapse and recreation are situated. I find this satisfactory in my journey to the essence – you are on this journey too. Go well. Arjun

    Vivek,

    This is a great media for you. I enjoy your voice and your rhythm and manner of speaking. Please keep it up.

    I do enjoy the background din of Bangalore from my suburban D.C. home, but I can see how it might frustrate one’s practice.

    I found myself “singing Indian” to your end-music, and I have no idea what that even means. It felt good, though.

    Very interesting thoughts there about what it really takes to create a nuclear release. Will have to look more deeply into that.

    Re the pervasiveness of Catholicism/Christianity, I recommend looking into the work of comparative mythologist (isn’t that a wonderful profession?!) John Lash, author of “Not in His Image” (http://www.metahistory.org/READING/NIHI.php). His studies of the Nag Hammadi library and Dead Sea scrolls show that the Gnostics were Pagans (not the “early Christians”) whose creation myth and relationship with Nature, and their knowledge of the truth of the Melchizedek sect of which Jesus was a priest, were so threatening to the new Roman religion that they and the whole European Pagan culture had to be destroyed or appropriated. I don’t have the language skills to do the story justice, so I recommend Lash’s site: http://www.metahistory.org. Also check out the experiment being conducted here: http://gaiaspora.org/. That’s Gaia-spora, as in dia-spora. Interesting, ne?

    Are you envisioning some sort of real-time interactive program a la blogtalkradio?

      🙂 Good to know Anastasia, good to know. Bangalore’s din…. I try to think of it like din din din….which makes it all musical!

      And next time, keep your phone handy, record your spontaneous sing-along and send it my way. Will add it to the mix!

      John Lash and I have been in sporadic communication for about a year now and I am on the gaiaspora mailing list. Small world eh? I’m particularly fascinated by his partner Lydia. JLL is an autocrat!!! 🙂 But awesome work, awesome writing….The Gnostic Gospel is still a gospel, which I think is short for GodSpell and now I’m wary of all Gospels. What to do?
      Hmmmm?
