Let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late - some dude wrote that in the 60s.
This is a holy war. This is a jihad. Though we've been in it all our lives, it has taken on a more vicious, all-out, unveiled, in-your-face, boot-on-your-face-forever, total-annihilation, goodness-will-never-exist-again-in-the-universe...explosion of madness, rage, and denial.
We've been feeling for a long time that the outcome is sure, that eventually good will overcome evil, and we've even known about the war's cosmic dimensions. We've all known what time it is most of our lives. Most of our fellow humans have repressed long ago what every souled being knows in their heart - we're here for Satyam Shivam Sundaram; Truth, Consciousness, and Beauty.
But there's Untruth, Sleep-trance, and Horror. How fucked-up is that? That positivity-police/prosperity-ship/create-your-own-reality crap didn't work out too well, how could it? It was coming from the shallows. Don't get caught Dreaming the Dark, boy, you won't get no satisfaction from the nubile new-age yoginis.
As various 'opportunities' have presented themselves, I've had to enter into some pretty dark corners of this earthly experience. Others have found equally horrific arenas, and some much worse. But there was never any doubt that I would have to confront the fears and look straight into what was being, or needing to be, revealed. Besides confronting all the awful truths of the political and cultural destruction going on, many of us were required to witness and emotionally feel the horrendous costs to the natural world and our fellow creatures of Earth.
As a Land Surveyor for many years (until I finally cracked), I was always the last person to see pristine forests and coastlines before the asshole developer's manly men and their equipment moved in. As a wildlife rehab assistant, and later an animal-shelter manager, I was strongly affected by the terrible suffering as well as the stunning wondrous beauty in every one of the beings. I couldn't have experienced one without the other, and that first day on the job was....well, hell on earth, but something made me decide that I had a place there and a service to accomplish. On purely practical terms, I cut the euthanasia rate by 50% in 3 years. I sang to, and communed and prayed with those in my charge every day all day, while I busted my ass making it as proper as possible. Figure I held 2000 of my friends in my arms as they trustingly licked my face and passed over.
To get to the root of my torment, I had to spend years researching the details of genocides and torture and mad-'science', the 1000-year war on healing-knowledge, the many effects of the 'cartesian' degeneracy, the cancer of western 'religion's' hate for all things natural, the industrialization of animal production and crops, and many related areas. I worked with what was then a 'radical' animal-rights community in the 80s, on orders given to me by Shri Hanuman after being made aware of the growing Indian monkey exporting industry.
Part of the research involved viewing many many hours of covertly-shot footage from various ALF groups, of animal ag, research, military, 'fashion', you name it - all gut-wrenching shit. No computers then, and PETA was just gettin' goin'. It had/has always been the hidden underpinning of western 'civilization' - the arena of sadism and sadism-denial-by-proxy. One can't be bought in to the 'benefits' of the perverted Life-hating death-culture of 'consuming' and craving-the-impermanent without shutting down the curiosity of actually knowing what you are 'consuming' - it's real true nature and condition. A blindness and an uncuriosity must be maintained. And the sadists have their walls of secrecy and propaganda of paramoralisms. Throughout history society seems to have always provided a niche for them. Twisted affirmative action to maintain their secure employment. As the perversion leaked out into the collective, we became a society that consumes, and teaches our young to consume, unmitigated horror in the food we eat and the media we watch.
Well, that's all not working out, and not an option any more. The crystal-methodists' Gulf War On The Ocean - Day 37, all remaining indigenous peoples on Earth under siege, mega-dams in China, Monsanto, Chemtrails, 'god-men' perverts, Gaza relief ships facing immanent attack, nukes here nukes there.... And at the same moment another obscure attack on beloved gentle creatures becomes a viral scandal on the internet. Those goddamned animal terrorists done got a bunch of sadistic/psychopathic 'dairy workers' on film doing what many activists and normal humans are saying is the worst shit they've ever seen. Let me tell you, there's a hell of a lot out there that's pretty bad shit. But it kicked my ass, and about 128,000 others in 2 days. Yesterday afternoon had 12,000, this morning 80,000. [3rd day @ 160,000] Hell, it's not even on Rense yet. I don't know how many 100's of comments there are, but most all of them express a combination of extreme shock and murderous rage for retribution. Many are 'volunteering' to carry out extremely creative drawn-out 'justice' on the perps, since it involves only misdemeanor charges.
So this is the time of full exposure / full disclosure. It raises deep questions, critical questions. What does true responsibility mean and entail as we ID more and more of the incurable psychopaths among us, fucking up every aspect of life on the planet. Maybe it's enough to just fully bear witness, but keep our distance. This 3D appearance level of reality is way out of control. Anyone's control. A greater level of awareness is required to see where the real control lies...and to make our choices from a 'choiceless' place. Exposure is what cracks these pieces of shit. They will be without protection. We won't know the 'answer' until we get to whatever that place is, in that moment. There'll be no choice. WE have to deal. And....and, we'll receive our orders and surely get Divine help. But we are definitely seeing an awakening, growing rage exploding out of the deep heart-well of committed peaceful humanists and plain normal people of conscience.
We have wished it could have been otherwise, but:
It seems like....total destruction....the only solution.
I highly DISCOURAGE EVERYONE from watching this. I guarantee you will be sickened in the first 3 SECONDS. Even that much will affect you deeply, and the rest will trigger your deepest murderous rage and emotional disturbance. It's psycho hillbilly rednecks taking their fucked up shit out on cows. Many people said they couldn't watch the whole 4 minutes, but the police were given many hours of video by the group Mercy For Animals. The farm has received massive number of threats, one individual is being held on $100,000 bail. My hope would be: all animals to sanctuaries, and torch the whole place as an example (controlled burn, of course!)....for starters.
Again: NOT RECOMMENDED for viewing. I will link it HERE, for the record.

Below is reprinted the message entitled "A Great Urgency: to all world religious and spiritual leaders" from Chief Arvol Looking Horse, 19th generation Keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe, dated May 12, 2010.
I think he means it's for all of you.
At about the same time I was listening to the great teacher of indigenous wisdom, Martin Prechtel on the radio. Both are reeling, as are many of us, from the continuing "disaster of biblical proportions" ongoing in the Gulf. While the MS&M media claims that 58% of 'murrikans' want to continue on the same old path of "all about self" and plunging the knife ever deeper into the heart of the Mother so to preserve some so-called "way of life", the obvious missing element here is well known and hardly needs to be said: Empathy. Just like Respect, the humans have fled from Empathy faster and faster for last 5000 years.
Prechtel was describing the event as a great "spiritual heart attack". He spoke of the Mayan view of Oil as the "neuron-deity of the memory of what it means to be a living creature". Their view of the Ocean is the Great Mother whose children we all are. They look at the Ocean, but don't Touch Her until they have been through a certain initiation. She is viewed with the highest reverence. The Mayan word is Ya. Ya for the Ocean, and all women have the prefix Ya before their names.
Empathy seems to be the test and the key and the line in the sand for this point in time in our spiritual evolution. I don't know if those who have put off rediscovering their sense of empathy with all beings have any more time left. It's gonna be a hard rain. Martin, as he has been doing for years, advises us to fully feel our grief, both for the creatures our brethren and for the Mother/Grandmother. His teaching is: to "metabolize the grief into beauty, of an active prayer for a time beyond our own, something that makes a human into someone worth descending from, and to become a neighbor to all other creatures and beings in the world." He also emphasizes that "the WAY you do everything absolutely MATTERS". Not "how big" your action is. We must love one another (and ourselves) for our "small greatness".
From Arvol Looking Horse -
Time has come to speak to the hearts of our Nations and their Leaders. I ask you this from the bottom of my heart, to come together from the Spirit of your Nations in prayer.
We, from the heart of Turtle Island, have a great message for the World; we are guided to speak from all the White Animals showing their sacred color, which have been signs for us to pray for the sacred life of all things. As I am sending this message to you, many Animal Nations are being threatened,
those that swim, those that crawl, those that fly, and the plant Nations. Eventually all will be affected by the oil disaster in the Gulf.
The dangers we are faced with at this time are not of spirit. The catastrophe that has happened with the oil spill which looks like the bleeding of Grandmother Earth, is made by human mistakes, mistakes that we cannot afford to continue to make.
I asked, as Spiritual Leaders, that we join together, united in prayer with the whole of our Global Communities. My concern is these serious issues will continue to worsen, as a domino effect that our Ancestors have warned us of in their Prophecies.
I know in my heart there are millions of people that feel our united prayers for the sake of our Grandmother Earth are long overdue. I believe we as Spiritual people must gather ourselves and focus our thoughts and prayers to allow the healing of the many wounds that have been inflicted on the Earth. As we honor the Cycle of Life, let us call for Prayer circles globally to assist in healing Grandmother Earth (our Unc'I Maka).
We ask for prayers that the oil spill, this bleeding, will stop. That the winds stay calm to assist in the work. Pray for the people to be guided in repairing this mistake, and that we may also seek to live in harmony, as we make the choice to change the destructive path we are on.
As we pray, we will fully understand that we are all connected. And that what we create can have lasting effects on all life.
So let us unite spiritually, All Nations, All Faiths, One Prayer. Along with this immediate effort, I also ask to please remember June 21st, World Peace and Prayer Day/Honoring Sacred Sites day. Whether it is a natural site, a temple, a church, a synagogue or just your own sacred space, let us make a prayer for all life, for good decision making by our Nations, for our children¹s future and well-being, and the generations to come.
Onipikte (that we shall live),

One example of the minority is the two Brahmin high priests (mahants) I initially encountered in India, one of whom became my music guru and the other my best ally and confidant and moral-support in my 20s. All they knew of white people was from the colonial experience - demeaning british ignorance and oppression. Neither one ever in the least conveyed any attitude of my so-called "ritual impurity" imposing any limitation on their respect and deep interest in my being and life experience and moral principles. I had absolutely nothing to offer them in any material sense or standing. They gave, and continue to give, unconditionally with humility and joy any and everything they perceive I might need including a lifetime guarantee of a home should I have need. Why? Because they saw I too came to them with respect and humility and with spiritual dis-ease and down a difficult and uncharted road. And they merely responded in like manner and according to their true natures. Maybe they perceived that I carried the potential of some manner of Grace, or maybe their receiving of me was the beginning of the amazing Grace which has been my fortune to have continue throughout the ensuing decades - including the grace that feels 'hard'.
I don't know how far back it was when respect and awe for all of this creation was smacked down. Nor do I understand why the damage wasn't total. There's been plenty of world-wide traumas to affect pretty much every group and culture. I just get the feeling that it has to do with outside interference - whether off-planet or not - of something truly alien to both humanity and this planet. The Sumerian kingship crap written in their records, the tales of that yahweh asshole - they provide clues, but no doubt it goes much much further back, 'sunken continents' and such, and even longer in time. But that's all for the history buffs and archaeologists to sort out. We're at the ultimate crossroads right here and now. Events and conditions are such that things could lead to a best-case scenario of a few future survivors eking out a retro-stone-age existence in an environment like that exquisitely described by Margaret Atwood in her books Oryx And Crake, and the sequel After The Flood. Did we come here for this? To bear witness to the great spoiling because of the refusal and rejection of the concept of Respect?
It is very common to hear now expressed in many quarters the view that Mother Earth would be better off without human presence, and that humans need the rest of nature to exist and survive, but nature and the nations of other beings have no need whatsoever for the humans - to live and enjoy their lives on this beautiful lush amazing planet. But the fact remains that various tribes of humans have existed harmoniously here forever, withstanding the assimilation into the predatory alien ways. And the four-leggeds and the finned and the winged ones have consciously co-operated and even sought-out inter-relating with various humans and clans forever also. There is no shortage of evidence of this. It is, as well, current known scientific knowledge that every atom in the universe is interconnected. The entire creation, from the farthest galaxy to the inner-most sub-atomic particle is a part of one big block of fractally-organized electro-magnetically fueled Life, self-evolving, and in communication with every other 'part'. We know this when we are born. We are receiving 'information' from the farthest reaches of space. The big mystery is how this 'knowing' is allowed by each of us to be suppressed and forgotten. This planet's geo-magnetic core is such that it allows our lifeforms to exist by creating a shield blocking incinerating 'stuff' swirling around 'out there'. This would reasonably mean that we have a relatively unique circumstance being here in our bodies, for which we should be grateful. Maybe Respect manifests out of Gratitude? Furthermore, our brains/nervous-systems are in magnetic resonance with the earth-core-field, as well as being strongly affected by solar-magnetic fluctuations and, probably significantly, electrical energy from all bodies in our local solar system. For more on this, an interesting article is posted on this Humble Blog.
So, our illusion of separateness is just that, a false concept. Not news nor rocket science to anyone with a few functioning synapses. Unfortunately most all of predatory, anti-Life 'science' of the last number of centuries has been increasingly based and focused on this LIE. Wanna know why the 'health/medical' systems are so useless? Research "Claude Bernard". He's the guy who just finally and ultimately codified the Lie-system in regard to 'mechanical' physiological 'science'. Turns out his wife and daughter founded the first animal-protection society ever, in England. Can you guess why? His book is still the standard medical text in universities. He exemplified what's called 'scientific free inquiry', which the so-called scientific establishment has railed incessantly against any restriction of. In 1969 I met a certain realized master, western-university-educated, who abandoned that matrix for the highest yoga practice possible, which resulted in his full remembrance of divinity. He told us that we must, above all, reject and abandon our (western) 'scientific mind'. He also, in '69, said that this vampiracal sucking of the blood of Mother Earth (oil) would lead to our downfall, if not the destruction of the entire planet. I now understand, after 40 years, what it takes to fully free oneself of the 'scientific mind'. I'm not speaking here of Vedic science, nor of true alchemy, nor any of the other ancient wisdom traditions which strived to maintain balance, increase knowledge, uplift mankind, and preserve the creation. We have just seen the logical conclusion of the arrogance of destructive science, based on greed, ignorance, and ego, in the Gulf of Mexico.
As Natural News states, we have a "volcano of oil spewing from the belly of Mother Earth herself." There is talk of setting off a nuclear bomb to 'stop' it. [Now there's brilliance for ya!] The writer goes on to say,"Theoretically, we could be looking at modern man's final act of destruction on planet Earth, because this one oil rig blowout could set in motion a global extinction wave that begins with the oceans and then whiplashes back onto human beings themselves. We cannot live without life in the oceans. Man is arrogant to drill so deeply into the belly of Mother Earth, and through this arrogance, we may have just set in motion events that will ultimately destroy us. In the future, we may in fact talk about life on Earth as 'pre-spill' versus 'post-spill'."
In many circles it's been considered 'uncool' to Care. And, "what can we do about it anyway?" Well, every person who lives their life demonstrating Respect, who, with no matter how small a gesture, uplifts others and celebrates our interconnectedness is "doing something". It's a matter of rejecting and removing ourselves from participating and co-operating with the alien death-forces. Maybe 'they' have instituted a 'test' for us. Maybe it's 'final exam' time. I think we may know soon the answer to that question. Regarding the alien predators among us, both the neighborhood variety and the top-1%-friends-of-dickhead cheney type, as "James" commented on Twelfth Bough blog - "They can't compete in being creative so they become destructive because they can rule that game. They rule by overwhelming the minds of those that are creative in mind and spirit with their insanity. This then gives them a sense (but not the substance) of power. But it is a substitute for real power which is creativity. Any imbecile can destroy. The antidote is to see this insane destruction as deliberate and as the POINT of the behaviour of those in power. Further, the antidote is for ordinary people to fight back against these power mad psychopaths in suits but not with more destruction. Instead, with non co-operation in this demonic plan for our mutual destruction and the social isolation of the psychopathic agents of this destructive plan. Once the 'plan' is seen, is exposed, 'by their fruits you shall know them', it's game over!" I don't think we should dismiss the idea that the Gulf situation was somehow 'on purpose'. The 'subgroup' (or whatever) of our species is desperate for their 'end game', if not to bring on the advent of their demonic 'savior'. They are certainly dismissing all sane (non-corporate) proposals for mitigating the disaster.
Mary Hamer, MD wrote recently in 'The New Human Species', "I withdraw my name from the human race; I withdraw my consent for this human madness of killing....Thank you Jains for your Non-violent philosophy toward all living beings including animals." We can live on this Earth with the rest of the creatures and natural life, even consuming a certain amount in balance, but only if the concept of Respect is REMEMBERED. We can be not ashamed of our 'humanness'. Not much time left to get our shit together, and get CREATIVE, and tune in to the World Tree (similar to 'as in the movie') and get the download for the steps we need to take in the days to come. Those who can: - pull out your biggest monkey wrenches, stand/sit with the indigenous and the forests, blockade the banks and the slaughterhouses, burn the GMO crops, secure the new technologies, dance and ceremony, feed everyone, and expose the pervasive lies....as they said in the 60s, "and kids, remember to smash the State!". We might take as our exemplar the noble Hindu character Hanumanji, quintessence of Respectful right-action in all endeavors and battles. Hell, we might even invoke Him on a regular basis, since he's none other than our very own Self. What could be easier and closer than that?
