Annihilation Theology of the Divine Realtor


"The sin of property, we do disdain
No man has any right to buy and sell the earth for private gain
By theft and murder they took the land
Now everywhere the walls rise up at their command

They make the laws to chain us well
The clergy dazzle us with heaven or they damn us into hell
We will not worship the god they serve
The god of greed who feeds the rich while poor man starve"

- from The World Turned Upside Down/The Diggers Song
[Beautiful version of this song by Dick Gaughan on YouTube HERE]

I don't know where I'm goin with this. Unveiling is accelerating at a nauseating pace. That's also a good thing....we pray that it is.
"In this great future, you can't forget your past", said Ras Bob. He also sang:
"Where did it all begin? When will it end?
Well, it seems like: total destruction the only solution"

You see, so many words, songs, poems, and speeches have been manifested already, maybe all I can do is cut & paste a selection of lyrics, as a way to force out some kind of expression of how the moment appears to me, in a state of 'war in heaven' within myself (and others around me).

My father, a WWI vet, eventually gravitated to rural real estate dealings, attempting to connect good simple steward people to a beautiful place to live on and care-take. He taught me natural meditation, observation, silence, and surveying/mapping. And by the time I was 15, I thought 'private property/property rights' was evil, despicable, insane, and blasphemous. Eventually, I "learned" that I was totally wrong, misguided, and unrealistic. Half the people I know decided that they needed to own land, many of them also inheriting 'property'. I was just never destined to be a 'land owner' (though I surveyed 100s of properties), and would have no interest in becoming one, though I know its the dream of pretty much everyone. Where did it all begin?

Manifest Destiny [Destiny Manifested?], The Holy Land, Dominionism, God-given right, Chosen-ness, Master Races, Speciesism - all these are putrid cancerous growths on the collective suicidal mind of ponerized humanity. The Mother of the Cosmos is about to show all that they OWN NOTHING. The severely underestimated pathocracy created the codes of paramoralisms that provided everyone their excuses. There was a failure to "Teach Your Children Well"....many generations of that....but even the best efforts were swamped by the demonic messages of the perfected orwellian control-system.

Yeah, I mean demonic. Who the hell knows how old the "god of greed" is? One manifestation was introduced a few thousand years ago by the name of Yaldabaoth aka Yahweh/Jehovah. The followers of the Abrahamic religions based on this "demented imposter" seem to be mostly all insane. But their insanity covers a spectrum from 'mildly deluded' to 'psychopathic'. All, however, buy into speciesism and 'owning'-the-Earth as a god-given prerogative. Living things are just 'things', that they imagine they are separate from, to be used or erased, at their will.

One way to understand this twisted phenomenon of a pseudo-deity pretender would be to read the book Not In His Image, by John Lamb Lash. Most important book to be written in centuries. Here's a nice quote:
"The Gnostic master says: ‘So long as the root of wickedness is hidden, it is strong. But when it is recognized, it is dissolved. When it is revealed it perishes… As for ourselves, let us dig down after the root of evil which is within each of us and produces its fruit in our hearts. It masters us. We are its slaves. It takes us captive to make us do what we do not want and what we do want we do not do. It is powerful because we have not recognized it’.”
He also writes: “the root of evil is human error, the mind mistaking itself. To defeat evil, we must unmask it by seeing its origin in the erring operations of our own minds.”
Oh, hmm, ancient writings on 'Revealing' again.
The "Error"! Aha! It would be a good time to discover just what that is.

Well, the Apocalypse is proceeding quite nicely these days, we being able to clearly recognize "what up", who's who, and where the lyin bullshit is comin from. Wonder when the hologram-deities will appear?
Hey, maybe they'll clarify who all holds which TITLES to which piece of real estate! Then we could sort out all these "ancient enmities" and forgo the Sampson Option after all. Yippee! We'd all be free to grab any land, home, orchard, forest in the area to which we are assigned, and proceed to imagine that the current occupants simply don't exist, either as human beings, non-human beings, plant-beings or devas (some 'land without a people'). Gas, murder or starve 'em like is done here in the high desert with the prairie-dogs.
Again from NIHI, Lash: "There is real genius, true manipulative brilliance, in the sado-masochistic mysticism of redeemer ethics. The "gospels" are practically worthless as a guide to personal morality, but they are extremely efficient tools of psychosocial control."

More Lash: "In historical perspective it now appears that salvationist religion is not a religion at all, not in the sense that it genuinely concerns itself with the Divine and responds in a compassionate and insightful way to human spiritual needs.
Rather, it is a political system in religious guise, a system whose fundamental model is domination. ['Annihilation Theology']
....the triumph of salvationist history is not due to some undeniable truth it carries, but rather to its covert delusional power. Wilhelm Reich...revealed how irrational insistence on the redemptive value of suffering ("the emotional plague") leads society head-on into conflict and madness."

Now we have all "rule of law" nation-states (degenerate criminal mafia enterprises) spitting on all laws designed to preserve and protect Life for future generations. And spitting on all normal people of conscience world-wide. "We'll decide how slowly you'll starve, how your children will grow up on toxic dump-sites!" In the movie "Tapioca", and angel says "knock knock", the character says "who's there?", "heaven", "heaven who?", heaven you had enough of this shit yet?"

As words fail I find this on Uruknet:
"A Massacre Is Not A Massacre"
by Ghassan Hage
June 3, 2010

I don't write poems but, in any case, poems are not poems.

Long ago, I was made to understand that Palestine was not Palestine;
I was also informed that Palestinians were not Palestinians;
They also explained to me that ethnic cleansing was not ethnic cleansing.
And when naive old me saw freedom fighters they patiently showed me that they were not freedom fighters, and that resistance was not resistance.
And when, stupidly, I noticed arrogance, oppression and humiliation they benevolently enlightened me so I can see that arrogance was not arrogance, oppression was not oppression, and humiliation was not humiliation.

I saw misery, racism, inhumanity and a concentration camp.
But they told me that they were experts in misery, racism, inhumanity and concentration camps and I have to take their word for it: this was not misery, racism, inhumanity and a concentration camp.
Over the years they've taught me so many things: invasion was not invasion, occupation was not occupation, colonialism was not colonialism and apartheid was not apartheid.

They opened my simple mind to even more complex truths that my poor brain could not on its own compute like: "having nuclear weapons" was not "having nuclear weapons," "not having weapons of mass destruction" was "having weapons of mass destruction."

And, democracy (in the Gaza Strip) was not democracy.
Having second class citizens (in Israel) was democracy.
So you'll excuse me if I am not surprised to learn today that there were more things that I thought were evident that are not: peace activists are not peace activists, piracy is not piracy, the massacre of unarmed people is not the massacre of unarmed people.

I have such a limited brain and my ignorance is unlimited.
And they're so fucking intelligent. Really.

As a ship named the Rachel Corrie MV sails tonight into the darkest of unknowns, I salute the artists Elvis Costello, Gil Scott Heron, Alice Walker (and a steadily growing list). A morally righteous slap in the face to Margaret Atwood, whose works I have previously recommended unfortunately - since her personal life has sold out to vile materialism, while she continues to warn us of the perils of greed.

note: some quotes are from Uri Dowbenko's article in New Dawn mag.

Rachel Corrie Returns
If you once thought
that when you crushed her bones
and stopped her mouth with sand and stone
murder would bring silence,
then think again.

If you once counted
on distance in time and space
to wear away the memory and in its place
leave blank acceptance,
then think again.

If you once believed
that your great lie could hold
back the tide until by virtue of its growing old
it could be taken for the truth,
then think again.

See how proudly she breasts
a merciful sea,
defiant of your tanks and jets and mines,
laden with the best in all of us,
full of love for Palestine. -Richard Jones

"How can you buy or sell the sky, the warmth of the land? The idea is strange to us. If we do not own the freshness of the air and the sparkle of the water, how can you buy them?

Every part of the Earth is sacred to my people. Every shining pine needle, every sandy shore, every mist in the dark woods, every clear and humming insect is holy in the memory and experience of my people. The sap which courses through the trees carries the memory and experience of my people. The sap which courses through the trees carries the memories of the red man.

The white man's dead forget the country of their birth when they go to walk among the stars. Our dead never forget this beautiful Earth, for it is the mother of the red man. We are part of the Earth and it is part of us. The perfumed flowers are our sisters, the deer, the horse, the great eagle, these are our brothers. The rocky crests, the juices in the meadows, the body heat of the pony, and the man, all belong to the same family.

Not In His Image

That is the thing, It is quite hard to do. Something that must happen to one if the desire is to be complete. I write a little, and am wrestling with a poem about it. Our world would benefit greatly from this personal endeavor. I found you through some of the other good people I read and am glad I did.

Hi Bho,

This is my First visit to your blog which I also found by way of the same good people and although I am not a registered blogger I do comment on many blogs. The one I have been part of for the longest time is the Trout Clan Campfire. Another commenter there is a native Cherokee called Montana Freeman. He was so taken with some of my musings and ramblings that he together with some others held a secret ceremony and made lil ol me into an adopted Cherokee. My given name is Spirit Across the Sea and sometimes people refer to me as SATS. I regard this as a very great honour and would really like to live in the traditional ways but as I come older I would find it very difficult to get along without my brick tepee.

All this talk about me, is leading round to my sharing some very wise words by another Native American, Chief White Cloud. Maybe you have heard his Circle of Life before even so it is worth repeating here.

THE CIRCLE OF LIFE

Mankind has a poor understanding of life.

He mistakes knowledge for wisdom.

He tries to unveil the holy secrets of our father, the Great Spirit.

He attempts to impose his laws and ways on Mother Earth.

Even though he, himself, is part of nature,
he chooses to disregard and ignore it for the sake of his own immediate gain.

But the laws of nature are far stronger than those of mankind.

Man must awake at last, and learn to understand how little time there remains
before he will become the cause of his own downfall.

And he has so much to learn.

To learn to see with the heart.

He must learn to respect Mother Earth-She who has given life to everything;
to our brothers and sisters, the animals and plants;
to the rivers, the lakes, the oceans and the winds.

He must realize that this planet does not belong to him,
but that he has to care for and maintain the delicate balance of nature
for the sake of the wellbeing for our children and all future generations.

It is the duty of mankind to preserve the earth and the creation of the Great Spirit.

Mankind being but a grain of sand in the holy circle which encloses all of life

Aho.
