BLOOD, BOND, & SOIL: Responsibilities of Incarnation

“I cannot defend my family, if everybody is my family.  I cannot help my brother, if everybody is my brother.”

  • Justin “Master Chim” Garcia

national-socialist-1

In times past, charity and service first towards one’s family, and then extended outwards to their fellowship/tribe, their community, their folk and their nation, was seen as virtuous and selfless.  Now, it is seen as virtuous for us (particularly those of European descent) to give our energy and resources to peoples that are as far from being like us or connected to us, as possible.  At the same time we are indoctrinated with the belief that if those we are “looking out” for are organically connected to us or anything like us at all, we are practicing selfishness, xenophobia and racism.

This is what happens when we allow virtue to be governed purely by emotion.  Emotions are easily manipulated.

This is what happens when strong societies become weak through degnerate decadence and internal resentments.

When we incarnate, our “mission” is to unlock the full potential of this version of ourselves.  In order to achieve this, we seek to amplify the strengths of both the physical and psychic (mental, emotional, etc.) bodies and the genetic and metagenetic factors unique to us and this incarnation and the land and people that includes within our sphere of influence.

One of these strengths would be the strength gained through being in integrity with ourselves and those we have given some sort of oath of service and alliance with (spoken or unspoken).  Outside of some sort of emotional schism or trauma, we will naturally seek to help those we are personally connected to.

If some sort of trauma has taken place, however, these traumas and the resulting beliefs and habits created, can essentially serve as “light blockers”- things that interfere with the natural expression of Self and soul.  These things that obfuscate, dim, or block the natural expression of light come from a variety of places- family, friends, teachers/education system, the mass media, the mass mind…  They create schisms between and resentment towards family, friends, communities, nations, races (outwardly and inwardly), and even nature itself.

Resentments towards our family, tribe, race, etc. are things that need to be worked through and transmuted for us to be functional, as resentment is psycho-spiritual poison.

We function best when we follow deep nature.  And man’s deep nature is that of a living, breathing, speaking, and miniature sun.  The Self which physically resides in the solar plexus, acts as our internal sun, and is who we truly are.  And like the sun, our light, warmth and heat (of ALL kinds) naturally extends outwards, with the most warmth and light given the closer in proximity it is.

Extending outward from body and Self, we have the outward extending natural feelings of closeness and sense of responsibility of immediate family, tribe, community, nation and/or folk.  This is part of the function of incarnation.  And to be functional, we give of ourselves proportionately according to whom is closest the incarnated sun that each human is.

These people and our relationships with them, become our personal “solar system”, with which we are charged with maintaining and strengthening the bonds within as much as we are capable (and they are willing).

Through right action in our localized spheres, we extend goodness to the entirety of humanity and the Earth.  But when we start deviating from that natural hierarchy of responsibilities, we become dysfunctional in our priorities.  This epidemic of misplaced and dysfunctional altruism coupled with internal resentment of things like family, nation and race (with white people in particular) has become a great bane on western society.

We are giving housing and resources to people coming from other lands, who have no loyalties to us.  Meanwhile there are those in our own community, in our own nation, maybe even in our own family, who are sick, hungry, homeless, and in physical danger.

ww

This is not functional.  This is not virtuous.

Most of us need to be honest with ourselves and admit that we primarily feel compelled to help the unknown and unseen foreigner due to our emotions, rather than due to some “higher calling“.  We see the pictures and videos.  We read the stories.  We respond to them.  We believe them.  And if the story/image is potent enough, we can become traumatized by them (even if we may not realize it).  We get an inevitable emotional reaction because in that moment we are imagining somehow, some way, we are there.  Maybe we even see ourselves as them.

This is the magic of empathy.  This is also the danger of it.

If we don’t know how, or we find ourselves unable to transmute these emotions, we can become stuck in reaction/trauma mind.  Thus any resulting “altruism” becomes tainted by unbalanced, reactionary, selfish and self-seeking motivates.  Immature emotionally and spiritually, the average mainline Christian or the secular “white savior” really just wants to stop the pain these unresolved feelings of empathy creates.  This scramble to soothe the pain, overrides logical processes such as seriously thinking of the long-term effects of what he or she is getting behind, or whether there is a better, more functional outlet for their compassion.

These people are virtuous because they care about someone other than themselves- but I would argue that their compassion, and perhaps more importantly, the energy and resources inspired by that compassion, is quite often misplaced.

This unresolved story-driven emotional empathy can become toxic and lead to toxic emotions like resentment.  Many well-meaning “white allies” of causes/organizations like “Black Lives Matter” often tend to “share in the struggle” with these groups in a mental and emotional sense.  This emotion-driven empathy, more often than not, seems to extend to resentment towards those the “disadvantaged” would say caused them to be so.  This sort of resentment has caused much social conflict and societal damage in the post-WWII western world.

This is why it is important for us to be grounded in function and know and understand our connections of blood, bond and soil.  This way we are not led and bled as individuals and as societies, by the fickle, easily-manipulated, and often quite self-serving pull of the emotions.

We are ALL part of The ONE- but that ONE expresses itself in localized groups and individuations.  We need to work within the framework set for us, rather than do what “makes us feel good” because we can.  Conscious “free will” means that we have the power to choose to go against Natural Law- but that doesn’t mean we should.

Yes, we can and should keep the elevation of ALL of humanity as a focus in our thoughts, deeds, and prayers.  But when we work in the world of time and space, our capabilities are going to inherently be limited.  We can’t help every individual everywhere in a direct manner- and that’s okay, because we don’t need to.  We just need to worry about keeping our side of the street in order and lead humanity by example.

There is a bumper sticker saying that goes “Think globally.  Act Locally“.  As best as my finite mind can comprehend the evolutionary process of the entirety of humanity, I hope to contribute to it in a positive manner.  And the way I primarily work is through service those I am bound to, who in turn, work to those they are bound to, and the love created by that web extends outwards to the entirety of humanity, in one way or another.

Through deeply loving one person, you love all people as that love will inevitably radiate out to all it comes in contact with; unless their hearts are closed to it.

And just because one loves and seeks to take care of their tribe first, this does NOT automatically mean hate or wish to subjugate, oppress, and genocide others.  This is a belief founded on what is just bad history; Marxist Hollywood spectacle history.

I want to see you and yours (whoever that may be), be the greatest and highest potential incarnations of your-Self and your tribe that you all can be.

Honor and serve blood, bond and soil.

THE GAME OF LIFE

“The masses of people are carried along, obedient to environment; the wills and desires of others stronger than themselves; heredity; suggestion; and other outward causes moving them about like pawns on the Chessboard of Life. But the Masters, rising to the plane above, dominate their moods, characters, qualities, and powers, as well as the environment surrounding them, and become Movers instead of pawns. They help to PLAY THE GAME OF LIFE, instead of being played and moved about by other wills and environment. They USE the Principle (of Cause and Effect) instead of being its tools. The Masters obey the Causation of the higher planes, but they help to RULE on their own plane.”

– The Three Hermetic Initiates speaking in “The Kybalion”

Perspective makes reality.

We can choose to see this world as an oppressive prison filled with wickedness and injustice.

We can choose to see life as some cosmic tragedy that has a morose sense of humor and continually beats up on the little guy.

We can choose to see our suffering as punishment for “wrongs” committed.

We can choose to see the universe and our lives as a series of random events that mean nothing.

Or we could choose to see it all as a game- a challenging game; a virtual reality simulation that we have collectively designed for ourselves to serve our own spiritual growth and development. A game we designed in a time and place outside of time and space.

Perhaps all of the obstacles and “villains” of our lives have been strategically placed here for us, by us to aid us in individual and collective growth.

Perhaps our suffering is only the pressure or “resistance” needed to for us to grow stronger.

Perhaps this “video game programmer” resides in a point of consciousness that exists far beyond the illusion that is death and suffering. Perhaps this is the true nature of the “matrix”. Now we won’t win every level or every round of the game right away, we need to develop our skills, which takes practice and it takes time.

But when you’re dealing with the immortal Self,  you are dealing with the “timeless”.

POLARIZED

“It is so easy to ‘pick sides’, to add our voice to one ideology or another, to align ourselves with one worldview or another. But just because it is so easy and comes so naturally to us to do so doesn’t mean we should give in to this baser instinct.

We are continually confronted with the option of choosing words and ideas that are either life-affirming or polarizing. We cannot have it both ways. When we lend our voice to the polarizing influences that are so prevalent we become part of the problem. Choosing to align with Self, which is the very antithesis of polarizing, brings Light into this world. Choose Light Always!”

~Master Matthias

Violent Clashes Erupt at

There has been much talk about how we as Americans, have become a “polarized society”.  And while many will nearsightedly point to the last election and the current president as the progenitor of this, any objective look will see that this issue of a polarized America has been around a while.

But when we are talking about “polarizing” and “picking sides”, I think it is wise for us to take a look at the definition of the word we are using:

polarized; polarizing

transitive verb

1 : to cause to vibrate in a definite pattern

2 : to give physical polarity to

3 : to break up into opposing factions or groupings

  • a campaign that polarized the electorate

4 : concentrate 1

  • recreate a cohesive rock community by polarizing … an amorphous, fragmented audience

Most people tend to use the secondary definition of dividing into ideological camps, when discussing polarity and lamenting its effects.  However, I think the first definition, the scientific one, is really more accurate in describing the reality of the situation- which is to create a specific vibratory pattern by intentionally directing or even restricting light vibrations.

When we use a polarizing filter on a camera, it gives clarity and focus to subjects that would have otherwise been indistinguishable due to the over-saturation of light in the shot- it defines things.

photo-classes21

When we “polarize”, we are focusing our light vibration in a specific direction for a specific purpose, as opposed to leaving it in its resting state- which is essentially practicing a loose form of magick.  We are making defining a perspective- an element of reality.

Now, choosing sides in our current social-media-inspired understanding, typically refers to taking a side on some hot-button socio-political issue, group or event, that when it comes to day-to-day life for most of us, are typically quite inconsequential (or at very least not NEARLY to the degree they are made out to be). But the reason we all seem to care about these issues, is because we see the “other side” to be in some way a threat to us, our loved ones; or our own personal “moral sensibilities” and our abstract concepts of the utopian world.

The problem then becomes our inability to accurately perceive the threat or lack thereof portrayed. Is this something that is staring me in the face right now, threatening those I love, or is this some “threat” that I have no actual connection to other than I read about it somewhere or saw it on TV.  This is the problem of living in the post-WWII artificial media reality.

Most of us are freaking out over the world that is being presented to us, not necessarily the world that IS (which REALLY needs our attention).

Of course, the world that is, also demands we divide into camps- that’s what families are; that’s what tribes are; that’s what communities are. In this respect, we can have the option of not taking sides until we don’t.

When the interests of one “camp” conflict with the “camp” I have pledged an oath of service to and its ability to survive and thrive, then it’s time to take sides. When someone is legitimately threatening the life of a loved one, the time for being impartial is over. It is then time to say:

Yes, you are part of the godhead, just as I am, and due to the responsibilities that I have taken on with this incarnation, I will dutifully send you back to it.

But most of the stuff we are so divided over has little to do with the people and groups we are truly connected to and have any duty of service to at all. Most of the time we’re just fighting other people’s battles and spouting other people’s ideologies.

This isn’t really making things better.

Let’s stop being “sol-diers” for the wars of rival gangs that are not our own.

Let’s get back to reality and the people and things that really matter.

THE “END OF THE INTERNET”

“But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.”

– Gospel of James 1:25

dont-tread-on-net2

I’m going to take a brief step away from my normal spiritual/philosophical/metapolitcal subject matter, and step into the seedy world of D.C. politics.  I found myself feeling almost “obligated” (probably just the pull of the mass mind :p) as a blogger to take a moment to give a little of my perspective on a pretty “hot-button” political issue right now, which has a lot of my fellow bloggers quite concerned (and definitely not without merit).  Obviously what I’m talking about is the repeal of Obama era “Net Neutrality“- i.e. “The End of the Internet“.

Net Neutrality was a political move by the Obama administration several years ago that essentially gave select corporations (Google, Amazon, etc.) power to monopolize the web and censor internet content they didn’t like with government blessings (and if you think the Obama administration or the majority of Dems were ever in favor of an ‘open internet’, you must not have been paying close attention).

Now that Net Neutrality is repealed, the “replacement” proposed looks to essentially give different select corporations (Verizon, Comcast, etc.) the power to monopolize the web and censor internet content they don’t like with government blessings (and if you think the Trump administration or the majority of the GOP were ever in favor of an ‘open internet’, you obviously haven’t been paying close attention).

The more things change… well, you get the point.

No one ever created freedom through legislation and regulation.

Freedom is always created through the mind, heart and will of man being connected, ultimately, to a greater something than himself: be it a family; a tribe; a nation; a code of morals and ethics, a conviction of the indomitable will, or a dream of the boundless imagination.

Freedom comes through the brilliance and perseverance of man.

Some may know that the internet was developed by military industrial complex entities like D.A.R.P.A. and global mega-corporations like IBM (and later Microsoft and Google) who took many of the best and brightest of the relatively young field of computer science to serve its ends.

The internet was always theirs.

But the problem came when the computer and then the internet became available to the civilian consumers for profit by the tech corporations.  As the industry grew and computers became more and more pervasive in running everyday life, a need was created for more and more people.  This gave the middle class and eventually even the “proles”, access to that knowledge.  And through that knowledge they were able to do pretty amazing things.

This became a problem- as is always seems to be the case when an individual or group give people gives certain knowledge to people they wish to subordinate.

With things like digital crypto-currencies, open-source technology, and a growing number of alternative social media platforms, there is no reason an entire alternative web; a real “internet 2” (and perhaps 3, 4, 5, etc.); could not be created.

I’m sure someone or a group of someone’s could be (and maybe are) doing that right now..

Maybe you?

Namaste and WRA-ALDA’s Blessings.

FUNCTIONAL CONSCIOUSNESS

“Jesus said to them, ‘When you make the two into one… and when you make male and female into a single one, so that the male will not be male nor the female be female… then you will enter the kingdom”

  • The Gospel of Thomas, v. 22

The above TED Talk from American neuroanatomist, author, and inspirational public speaker, Jill Bolte Taylor is definitely worth taking 20 minutes out of your day to listen to.  It is a fascinating story that gives a lot of great insights into the workings of human consciousness.  The dichotomy between the left and right brain hemispheres is definitely food for contemplation.

To summarize, Taylor tells the story of how she suffered a stroke, which caused her left brain hemisphere, with its primary function of distinguishing distinguishing the physical individual from his or her surroundings (as well as functions of ordering, discriminating, logic, reason, language, etc., etc.,), to “die“.  In its place, she felt connected to all that is to the point of not being able to tell where her hand ended, and the wall she was leaning against, began.

She eventually realized she was having a stroke and worked for the better part of an hour to dial a phone and get help.  Upon being hospitalized, Taylor ended up having a near-death experience, and came back with a radically changed outlook on life, as most people who go through such experiences tend to experience.

While I found the story she told fascinating and eye-opening (and perhaps the root of my criticism is simply due to the limitations of trying to sum this sort of stuff up in a 20-minute time frame), I could not help but question the moral conclusion she seems to almost preach at the end.

After Taylor tells the story of her stroke and her near-death experience, she speaks to the ability of “anyone” to choose right-brained consciousness over that of left-brained consciousness at “any time”.  She then goes on to make a common value judgement, which paints the “one-with-all” state of consciousness of the right brain as being the superior mode that should be the preference at all times over the left brain that sees us as “separate” entities.

However, if you listen to her story, when she only had access to this consciousness, she couldn’t speak and could barely dial a telephone.  In short, she had next to no ability to actually DO anything in this reality.  She could not function.  

Anyone with experience with psychedelics can relate to this experience as being similar to the peak of a strong trip, where you can do little more than just sit in a heap, barely able to talk or move, but at the same time, feeling in complete “oneness” with everything.

It’s a great experience, but you probably ain’t doin’ much…

The characteristics of the left and the right sides of the brain correlate quite a bit with the “Left Hand” and “Right Hand” paths of esotericism- and this is probably not by accident.  The Right Hand Path focuses on becoming “one” with the Divine; with ALL that is.  Meanwhile the Left Hand Path focuses on the increased development of the individual as a distinct, sovereign being capable of directing their own destiny.

The left and right hemispheres also correlate with the over-arching Feminine and Masculine Principles and polarities.  The characteristics of the right hemisphere are synonymous with the characteristics of Feminine traits like passivity and receptivity, thus creating the “one with all” feeling.  Meanwhile the characteristics of the left hemisphere correspond with the Masculine traits such as the desire to create order and structure out of the “Primordial Chaos“, which is the formless Feminine substance.

We see this primordial truth illustrated in the ancient myths.  Odin and his brothers form the cosmos out of the remains of Ymir, the frost giant.  Giants were understood in the Norse myths to be archetypes of primordial chaos. We also see this concept in the Babylonian creation myth where the god Marduk creates the world from the body of Tiamat, the serpent of the primordial sea of chaos.

The Masculine Principle brings form and order to the chaotic and formless potentiality of the Feminine- the primal matter or “mother”.

It is a mistake to say that we should be choosing one over the other in any absolute terms (typically Right brain/Feminine), as seems to be suggested in so much of New Age philosophy.  I would also argue that much of what is touted as “unity consciousness” is really just polarized right-brain consciousness.

human-brain

There are certainly times where one mode of consciousness is preferable to the other, but to strive to remain in one mode of consciousness because we believe that mode to be the superior one, left or right, I feel is error.  Now don’t get me wrong, as an artist and a creative type, I LOVE right-brain consciousness, but I can’t focus or live functionally in THIS world if I’m always in that mode.

The problem with the left brain and the “ego” isn’t that it seeks to tyrannically separate us from the world; it’s that for most of us, it is completely immature and underdeveloped- just like the right side.  We live in a world of compartmentalization, and the sooner we learn to think in a more “holistic” sense, the better off the world will

What should be our true absolute goal, which is to “marry” the two separate (and often conflicting) hemispheres and the modes of consciousness they receive, so they are in sync with one another, creating a unified mind.  Anyone can begin this process by learning and practicing meditation, through which can be achieved open receptiveness and feelings of being “one with all”; and using it in conjunction with the orderly concentration and focused intent of scientific prayer.

In my practice I typically seek to use meditation first to connect with the Mind of WRA-ALDA, the ALL IN ALL.  Once I have established a clear, strong connection, I move into the creative “action” of prayer and ritual.  And then after completion, I once again move back into mediation.  ‘Rest, action, rest’; or ‘potential, realization, potential’.

Let us each seek to bring our minds into unity and maturity, through establishing a connection with Self and allowing it to move us into our highest potential.  This way we can move towards the true spiritual sovereignty of the Übermensch.

Namaste and WRA-ALDA’s Blessings

UNIVERSAL HUMAN “RIGHTS”

“Human rights and wrongs are not determined by Justice, but by Might.”

  • Ragnar Redbeard

Screen-Shot-2015-10-14-at-09.13.48-e1444811397983

There has been debate for a long time as to what rights people do or do not have. Some debate whether people actually have rights at all.

Do people have the right to bear arms?

What, if any, is the extent of the right of free speech? Is it a right to get an abortion?

Is it a right to be able to obtain goods and services from a private business if said business does not want to associate with you based on your race, religion or lifestyle?

The whole concept of “rights” originated as an essentially western European concept, and really took form during the Enlightenment period of the 18th century (although the Magna Carta, did serve as somewhat of a pretext back in the 13th century). Rights were, for all intents and purposes, a construct to counteract what were becoming viewed as the “non-rights” of monarchy and government.

The most famous institution of this idea is of course, the Bill of Rights, which are the first ten amendments of the United States Constitution. More recently we have had the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights, which serves in essence to affirm that all human beings have a right to the same standard of living and dignity.

In this post-Enlightenment age, we see the idea of “rights” as a matter of fact- but is it?  Do we really have “rights”, or is this indeed a “social construct”? After contemplating upon the Laws of Nature and Creation, I personally came to the conclusion that in truth, we do not have “rights”, as this idea does not seem to exist elsewhere in Nature.

Much of what we have come to see as “rights” are instead a combination of personal responsibilities and “non-rights”. For example, it is our responsibility to speak up for what we see as right and wrong and no one has the right to prevent us from doing so. Another example is that it is our responsibility to protect our privacy and no one has the right to violate that.

Let’s look at the much-maligned “right to bear arms”, which is basic right of self-defense. I don’t have a right to own a gun any more than I have a right to own a car or a computer. However, I do have a responsibility to defend my family and myself. Likewise, no government or individual has any right to keep me from doing so through force, coercion, theft, etc.

The only RIGHT that exists in nature (if you want to call it that) is for a being to make use of what it has to ensure the survival of its lineage.  If you’re in the woods with a bear, you either have the RIGHT to do what you need to do to live, or the bear has the RIGHT to eat you.  Might is THE Right, here.

Let’s think about the natural world for a moment: no animal claims it has the right to defend itself or its offspring, but if it wants to survive and continue the propagation of its species, it better learn do so effectively. Again it is that animal’s responsibility to defend itself by any means it can.

A lion does not see an antelope’s “right to live”, it sees it as food. The antelope doesn’t think, “Hey, this lion is trying to impinge on my rights.” The antelope simply knows he has the responsibility to outrun that lion if he wishes to live.

Similarly the lioness has the responsibility to defend her cubs against a hyena. She doesn’t take the hyena to court. She does whatever she needs to do at that moment to ward off the attack, and then she goes about her business. Likewise, the pride does not go seeking out and eradicating (or even more laughably, attempting to imprison) the hyenas to ensure they don’t attack again.

This applies to humans as well. If a person is causing or attempting to cause harm right then and there, we have the responsibility to defend our family, loved ones, others who may ask for our help in the moment, and ourselves. When the threat is neutralized with the appropriate amount of force in the moment, then we go about our business.

This idea of rights may have been a way to verbalize this concept in a simplified form so that it could be coded into law to “protect” the citizen against overreach of government and “mob” power, however it appears to have transformed into something else.

I have continually stressed that nobody a “right” to force anybody to do anything against his or her will, regardless of whether or not we feel it is the “morally right thing” for them to do, which now brings us into the touchy waters of “civil rights”. This is the idea that “everyone” has the right to be treated “fairly” regardless of ANY qualities that any other individual or group would view as negative or undesirable, and not wish to associate with. This is the idea that everyone is entitled to exactly the same social and economic opportunities as everyone else.

While this utopian idea may tug at the emotional heartstrings and sound like a wonderful thing, it should be understood that this idea of “equality” is completely foreign in Nature. In Nature, it is the strongest, fittest, and most intelligent, that has greatest chances to survive and thrive.

I am not saying that we as humans should behave strictly according to our animal nature. What I am digging at here is how “right” has become code for “entitlement”. In essence it is saying, “I deserve a good life just because I was born, and if I do not have the same social and economic status and opportunity as that person or that group, it is because my ‘rights’ have been violated. It is not due to any fault or error or lack of initiative on my part.”

It is ultimately the responsibility of the individual to learn and grow from his or her own life experiences. If one takes the mantle of perpetual victim-hood, rather than recognizing their contribution to their lot in life and their potential to change it, then they will remain as “victims” to their perception of life.

Human beings are subject to the consequences of their actions in this life and the mindset that precedes it- and ALL the circumstances of our adult lives are first and foremost the direct result of our mindset and to whatever degree we choose to be accountable for it.

Human beings are capable of incredible acts of creativity and resilience, despite the most overwhelming of obstacles. This is a truth that is beyond any setback that can be imagined due to race, sex, religion, orientation, class, physical or even mental capabilities.

There have been great men and women that have risen out of the most abject poverty and oppression. These are ultimately men and women who, at some level, understood and used the Laws of Nature and Creation to their advantage. The Law cares not of your race or your wage. It is not overly complicated or difficult to understand. It just requires your time, patience and willingness to work with it.

scales-of-justice_2946308b

We don’t have to agree with what someone says or does, but it is not our right to silence them (as is being done through “political correctness”) or force them to act against their will just because what they say or do hurts our feelings or offends us. Unless the individual is promoting or perpetrating real physical violence (not just saying “I don’t like them”) on an individual or group, there is no justification for interference in their lives.

Be it “Jim Crow” or “Civil Rights”, the State loves making laws saying what people can and cannot do to the point of absurdity.  This ultimately fosters a sense of dependence on government by whatever class it is “protecting” at the moment.

The State thrives on convincing people they need it to survive.

No matter what your race, ethnicity, religion, gender, or economic status, if you are a fully capable, fully functioning adult, you are capable of manifesting your own freedom in every sense of the word, regardless of where you are.  It is the Law.  You don’t need an impersonal bureaucratic entity to provide for you.

The question is, do you have the courage and perseverance?

And do you have a strong community; a tribe; a fellowship; a band of brothers or sisters to support you on your quest?

Every moment we choose whether or not we are going to approach life from a position of strength or a position of weakness.  When we are connected to Spirit, we are coming from a position of strength.  This strength through Spirit gives us the “might” that allows us to utilize “The Law”, i.e. our “right(s)”.

Our “rights” come from our ability to effectively utilize The Law of Manifestation and work with the Laws of Nature and Creation- to become “masters on the grand chessboard”.  If we can’t manifest what we feel we are “entitled to”, then it isn’t actually our “right” to have it.  In the end, our ability to manifest a good life or a not-so-good life is depends on us, and our understanding of the Laws of Nature and Creation.

We are entitled to nothing in this world except the Light, Life and Love of the Creator.  All other things come to us as the result of the strength of our focus and desire; the strength of our moral character and industriousness; and the strength of our knowledge of and connection to the Laws of Nature and Creation.

Namaste and WRA-ALDA’s Blessings.

Do not question my hallway of great darkness.  Christmas began as a pagan festival.  I am simply returning to its roots.  Some of us have not forgotten how to venerate the Old Gods.”

Now, regardless of the fact that it was not actually her that tweeted that, the false FLOTUS speaks truth in these words.  Indeed, what we have come to know in the West as “Christmas”, with all the characters and symbols associated with it, was a largely European pagan festival that was not all about food, comfort, cheer, and gifts; but was also about the real tenuousness of life and the closeness of death for those in northern Eurasia during the winter months.

This festival was centered around the Solstice and the “Old Gods”.  While the primary figure in the Solstice drama was the Sun, represented among the Proto-Indo-Eurpoeans as the goddess, Sól (and among the later Europeans as Christ Jesus).

However, in addition to the Sun, there were other “actors” in the period of Yule; other forces of Nature and Creation that were central to the lives of the people who embodied this rich tradition.  One of the most famous of these Old Gods happens to be one of the most famous (and in this consumerist culture, probably THE most famous) Christmas character of all- Santa Claus.

When it comes to the origins of the figure known as “Santa Claus”, a lot of people immediately gravitate toward the story of St. Nicholas of Myra.  A somewhat legendary figure, St. Nicholas was reputed to have a “legendary habit” of secret gift-giving.  Nicholas was a said to be a Greek Christian in the Byzantine Empire and during lived in the 4th Century A.D.- three to four centuries before the Muslim conquest of the region.  However, some have argued that St. Nicholas was in fact born of wealthy ethnic Black Anatolian “Muurs.

But the origins of what became Santa Claus are in truth much older than that, and originated in a much colder place.  In many parts of pre-Christian Northern and Central Europe, the Winter Solstice was known as the time when Odin or Wotan- the white-bearded ruler of Asgard, led his hunting party across the sky.  This event was known as “The Wild Hunt”, Odin rode his eight-legged (eight reindeer) steed named Sleipnir, which would leap great distances across the heavens.  During this time, children would leave their boots by the chimney filled with carrots and hay to feed Sleipnir.  In return for their charity, “Odin” would leave the children gifts by their boots.

This night of Odin’s “Wild Hunt” has a counterpart in what is known as Lussinatta, or “The Lussi Night” in Sweden.  This is now celebrated as St. Lucy’s Day and occurs on the 13th of December every year.  However, before the Gregorian Calendar shift, it would have fallen on December 21st– the night of the Winter Solstice.

Some legends suggest that a supernatural female entity was said to ride through the air with her fearsome followers called “Lussiferda” and that it was particularly dangerous to be out on this night.  Misbehaved children had to take special care as Lussi could come down the chimney and take them away, and if certain tasks needed to prepare for Yule were not completed, Lussi would punish the household.

The contrast between Odin who left gifts and Lussi who brought punishment has echoes of the later pair of St. Nicholas/Santa Claus and the Krampus.  Interestingly, some scholars link Krampus, as a member of the fearsome entourage of the ancient Germanic goddess Frau Perchta, who some connect with the ancient Norse goddess, Freya– one of the primary Vanir or old nature gods who some say ruled before the Aesir.

The inclusion of both the fearsome and the festive shows a deep understanding of the dualism inherent in nature that these ancient European peoples possessed- especially during this most perilous time of year.  On the one hand, we have the often harsh and brutal forces of nature during the cold winter months.  And on the other, we have the festive joy that comes from the promise of the return of the Sun.

But if we go even deeper and look at etymology and linguistics, we add another layer of sophistication.  Swedish stems from the Indo-European family of languages, if we sound out the name of Lussi and in particular, her Lussiferda, the name “Lucifer” might perhaps come to mind.  Lucifer, of course, stems from “lux ferre”, which in another Indo-European language, and that is Latin, literally means “light bringing”.

We perhaps see that these ancient Northern Europeans were pointing at how it was the oft-times terrifying darkness that carried the Light that brought life to the world.  This is true not only within Nature, but within the trials and tribulations of our own lives and our own being- the night is darkest before the dawn.  It is the darkness that brings the Light.

We see this deep understanding mirrored in in the Scandinavian Festival of St. Lucy where traditionally a procession is led by a beautiful young lady adorned with a crown or wreath of candles upon her head (although now this is being changed to be morepolitically correct”), bringing the promise of life-giving Light into the darkest night.

The cold and brutal Northern European winter was a time that had the potential to bring starvation and death (and often did).  But with after the passing of the Solstice, the people knew that the days were slowly beginning to grow longer, and the life-giving Sun was growing stronger.

The Norse-Germanic festival of Yule was celebrated from right around the time of the Winter Solstice all the way through the second week in January.  This festival of feasting, drinking and sacrifice was a hallowed tradition among pre-Christian Northern European peoples to whom winter had a special significance that was not held among most others.  Yule was the tradition of a people who were close to the land and intimately tied into the cycles and processes of Nature.

The industrious elves/dwarves, the holly, the mistletoe, and the evergreens that have all become symbols of “Christmas” are all hallmarks of the culture and lore of Northern Europe.  The white of the pure, cleansing snow; the green of the evergreen tree- symbol of the magic of regenerative life; the red of the blood of the sacrifice and the folk; and the gold of the eternal undying Sun; these are the colors that are synonymous with “The Holidays”.

These wonderful things are the heritage of my people, our legacy and our contribution to the spiritual evolution of humanity.  I am not one to cry “cultural appropriation” and do not take offense to others who find truth and power in the folk archetypes of my people.

However, it should also always be understood that the myths and folk archetypes of a people, are inseparable from the history and experience of that people.  These archetypes of the Christmas season are inseparable from the unique folk consciousness and soul of the Indo-Aryan peoples- they are from us, and they are us.

#YOUTOO: There Are No Victims Only Volunteers

“There are no victims, only volunteers.”

  • Robert Anthony

victimd-1440x564_c

Tuhon” Tom Kier, Sayoc Kali (Filipino blade martial art) instructor and Director of Operations for Sayoc Tactical Group– a group that regularly trains police and military; starts off his women’s ‘self-defense’ training by posing the following question to women who have been assaulted in some way (paraphrased):

Was there anything that you could’ve done to prevent the situation; any choice that you could’ve made that would’ve altered the outcome?

If someone says ‘no‘, he asks them to leave…

Someone might read this and think this man is being “a bully” or “misogynistic”, but this would be an assessment based in emotional reaction- something that is the antithesis of the philosophy behind Sayoc.  The reason Tuhon Tom asks these women to leave, is because martial arts is really first and foremost about mindset.  If your mind is not receptive to the concepts and philosophies behind the strategies being taught, then investing in training becomes a waste of everyone’s time.

This same principle applies to every aspect of our lives.

If someone truly believes they could have done NOTHING to alter in any way, a negative situation they encountered as a fully-functioning adult, they already have the mindset of a victim, and that mindset will perpetuate itself until they themselves change it. Learning things like situational awareness and various tactics of violence will be largely ineffectual if someone already has it in their mind that they are a victim- they will simply perpetuate that belief, and they will more than likely lose whatever battle they are in.

But people have a great affinity for being “the victim”, because victims aren’t responsible.  This is a reflection of a greater cultural trend that has developed particularly in the last few decades.

One of the fundamental difference between being an adult and being a child in the is the freedom to make choices and decisions about the direction of our lives.  We are 100% responsible for the decisions we make; what we choose to do and not to do.  Of course, the exception would be young children, as well as a large percentage of who would be classed as mentally handicapped, don’t typically make too many decisions about what is happening in their lives, so the one who would potentially volunteer them for any danger are those who are charged with making their decisions and exercising guardianship over them.

A volunteer is someone who makes choices.  It is ultimately where we choose to set our priorities, that determines how capable and self-reliant we can be.  It is our choice that determines the direction of our lives.

It is my choice to decide that I’m going to learn how to balance my checkbook, do laundry and cook, but then decide not to take the time to bother to learn anything about my car. This means when something happens to my car, and I get stranded, and then perhaps, taken to the cleaners by the mechanics- I volunteered for that to happen. I chose not to learn how my car works, knowing that there was always the potential for the car to break down, because cars break down. I knew that, but I gave that situation away and chose not to be prepared for it.

The same principle can be applied to things like to those fully-functioning, fully-capable adults who society would label “victims” after having been on the receiving end of violence and sexual abuse. If someone takes the time to acquire knowledge of the other things that he/she may face in life (managing a career, paying bills, navigating relationships, etc.), but does not choose to partake in some sort of legitimate violence training or carry a weapon or have some other means of effective counter-violence in the event that someone at some point may try and use violence on them- that person is “giving” that situation away in the event it happens.

If there is one thing that the last few millennia of human history has taught us, it is that violence happens.  But maybe if you just think positive thoughts and just avoid any kind of conflict at all whatsoever- including any situation where your loved ones may need protection; maybe you’ll be able to squeeze under the radar…

If the individual does not make learning situational awareness and tactics of violence a priority, they are volunteering for whatever may happen as a result of that violence because they chose not to be prepared for it.

Of course, the person enacting the violence or rape or any other sort of violation of sovereignty is also 100% responsible for their actions- and the resulting consequences, whatever they may be…

It does not matter if we are talking about the immediate threats like back-alley thugs or the less-tangible kind in the manner of “systemic oppression“, the seeming hopelessness of situations that we find ourselves in can always be alleviated in some way with proper preparation, proper training, and most importantly, the proper mindset.

Oprah Winfrey was a sexually abused black girl of average looks who grew up in the south during the 50s and 60s, and was impregnated at 14.  But because she first and foremost cultivated the right mindset to achieve her goals, she grew to head a media empire and is one of the wealthiest and most influential people in the world.  Whatever your opinion of her, you have to admit that’s pretty impressive.

So what is your excuse for not living up to your highest potential?  What your excuse for being unable to master your reality and shape a life of prosperity and fulfillment?

Not enough time for that I suppose..

Or maybe it’s someone else’s fault  life seems like it’s kickin’ your ass.  Is it the Whites?  Is it the Jews?  Is it the Muslims?  Is it the Leftists?  Is it the Fascists?  Is it men?  Is it women?  Is it your boss?  Is it your ex?  Is it your parents? Is it your partner?

Or maybe it’s you.

Perhaps it is you who are holding yourself back from becoming the highest potential version of you that can exist.  No, it definitely is you.  So for the good of the entire world… STOP DOING THAT!

Now, even having a strong mindset free of victim mentality, understanding how to use the Law, and possessing virtues like self-reliance and perseverance does not always ensure that we are going to “win” every single time.  But as creators in the image of the Creator, we ALWAYS have the power to shape our own personal reality and put it on a path toward strength and growth, if we take the time to listen and learn how.

Namaste and WRA-ALDA’s Blessings

JUST SOMETHING THAT NEEDED TO BE SAID

“To conclude that others were wrong was usually as far as most of us got.  The usual outcome was that people continued to wrong us and we stayed sore… We began to see that the world and its people really dominated us.  In that state, the wrong-doing of others, fancied or real, had the power to actually kill.  How could we escape?”

THE MYTH OF “UNEARNED PRIVILEGE”

“I recognize the manifestation of undeviating Justice in all the circumstances of my life.”

  • Qabbalistic Tarot affirmation

vzxoxrzrdpjn5xu7inrs

Associate Director of the Wellesley College Center for Research on Women (at least she was when she stated the following) referred to privilege, specifically “White male privilege” as “an invisible package of unearned assets..”

The general belief around the “privilege” of critical theory is that a dominant culture existing anywhere is wrong or “unjust” (although this value judgement tends to be selectively applied only to certain groups..). It is the idea that the undeniable fact of reality that the people whose ancestors played the largest role in founding the society they live in will shape that society in their image… is somehow wrong or “unfair”.  But again, it tends to only be seen as unfair when it pertains to the “privilege” of certain groups.

In truth, the whole idea of “unearned privilege” is antithetical to the Principle of Cause and Effect; the Natural Law that states we reap what we sow; the Law that is always in effect.  The only equality that truly exists is through the indiscriminate nature of the Laws of Nature and Creation, and that we all equally exist as part of it.

The people who use other Laws for selfish or tribal reasons at the expense of others, got whatever they got because they “earned” it in one way or another. You may not agree with the way they got it or kept it, but the Law of Manifestation is not a respecter of persons- and it always works.  One can argue if it’s “fair”, but fairness itself is a pretty relative concept;- fair to whom and in what way and what expense?

The billionaires of this world would argue that they deserve what they have because they did what needed to be done to grow their wealth and perhaps more importantly, keep it– and it’s really hard to logically argue with that.

The rain falls on the just and the unjust alike.”

Men we would see as “evil” are ultimately used for the evolution of humanity just as much as the “good ones”.

As an aside, the assumption that the rich (which is yet another relative term) and the “privileged” ALL obtained their wealth through unfair and unscrupulous tactics, and as such do not suffer is error in and of itself.  How can we full-on demonize people who live in a world most of us know next-to-nothing about?  The single mother in the projects on welfare or the working-class family in the depressed former industrial town know nothing of the stressors of the billionaire, and so often tend to project their view of wealth and “justice” onto them.

Even with the kid who seems to grow up with a “silver spoon in their mouth” who never seems to have the worries of us “common folk”, the point can be argued from the esoteric concepts of the direction of Karma and the drive for the Being to spiritually evolve through various “challenges” being present through the birth/death/reincarnation cycles at birth.

There is no punishment.  There are only pressures that are there to serve as potential catalysts and opportunities for spiritual growth and development.

I don’t deny that privilege exists- but I think “unearned” privilege does not. It is by definition incompatible with not only the esoteric understanding that the Laws of the Universe are inherently for the positive evolution of ALL because the Laws are the Active Force of the ALL which IS ALL, but the observable Laws of Nature.

This myth of unearned privilege is ultimately something that is used to remove any and all responsibility from the “underprivileged” or “victims” for their situation, and completely shift the blame 100% upon external factors.

It’s about envy.  It’s about resentment.  It’s about power.

Those who lament the mythical unearned privilege, have fallen victim to slave morality of Nietzsche- the individual who sees their identity as a direct comparison to someone else.  This is not the view one wants to take when working towards spiritual growth and evolution, which requires the master morality- the individual who compares himself to himself; the man who strives to be better than he was the day before.

There are no victims, only volunteers.

But perhaps most importantly, when we are focused on pointing out the “unearned privileges” of others, we are not focused on expressing gratitude for the blessings of our own lives.  The fact that people are devoting their careers to discussing this myth is yet another example of how we as a society are ungrateful for the blessings we have.

So let us be grateful for our blessings, regardless of whatever our current lot in life.  Let us be sure that we are grateful for what we do have and do the work to maintain and build from it, because Nature doesn’t believe in entitlement either…

Namaste and WRA-ALDA’S Blessings.
