Blowing Through The Air

Sri Ramana Maharshi
A couple weeks ago I deleted a main section of my post dealing with a very personal situation. There was a lot of anger and rage expressed in the moment, and I later thought that it wasn't useful under the circumstances to make it so public for various reasons. I've had a lot of time to think about it, and much of the situation remains unchanged, but it has been helpful to take some time to assess all of it in the context of the big picture, both in the larger scheme of things outside as well as within.
The 'situation' is basically that a very close friend and guru-brother has become one of the millions of political prisoners of the empire. In reality, this person has done nothing 'wrong', has committed no offense against anyone (nor threatened), is an upstanding human being and well respected member of the community and master artisan, but has been caught up in one of the various anti-life wars-on-everything perpetrated by the psychopaths wielding their imagined power over all that stands in the way of their deluded agendas. As in many other cases, my friend is being made an example of to terrorize others, and is painted as some kind of threat to 'order' ("lawn-order", as we used to say). There is a total media black-out and a bail many times that of Assange's, as well as all records sealed even to legal representation. This is taking place in one of the most fascist districts in the country. Not a good situation, however this individual is intimately familiar with 'timeless space', possessed of natural spiritual talents unimaginable to the moronically stupid parasitic consciousnesses of his demonic tormentors. Give thanks and praises. Truth will triumph.

However, we all know that there is nothing unusual or unique about this type of occurrence. It's what fascist empires do, only the 'crimes' change over time. But the 'offense' is always: what normal real people normally do to live a normal human life and protect themselves from the predations of power-over control-freaks who worship materiality and ownership of everything "other" and are dedicated to destroying whomever and whatever fails to comply with the 'right' of their 'dominion'. This is going on non-stop everywhere every moment, and has for far too long. It takes place in the military adventures of empires, in 'civilized' societies and cities, in the forests, in corporations' domains, in religious institutions, in 'educational' institutions, in our neighborhoods, and in our homes and families. It's the all-pervading Matrix pushing our tolerance past the breaking point, crescendoing lately with the veil-renting solstice eclipse and the subsequent 'holiday' mass insanity and delusional temporal mind-loop mast-in-the-storm of sentimentality.

About this day: my attitude has long been one of hopeful anticipation toward the final erasure of this diabolical 'holiday' and all that it historically and mythologically entails and represents. I got no use for a 'day' celebrating generosity, peace, saintly awakened human beings, miracles, or whatever, since these things can be celebrated in every living moment. Neither do I need the delusion of an outside savior-son-of-an-off-planet-entity.
To quote Les Visible on this day: "The power latent within every human being is greater than all the darkness that can be arrayed against it. There are people walking the Earth right now who make remarkable changes in the world at every point where they are moving through it and it takes place without anyone seeing it happen."
My final thought on this matter is this: In the book The Golden Thread of Time, by Crichton E.M. Miller, he outlines how the Celtic Cross is the divine instrument which is key to the ancients' knowledge of the many cycles of time, large and small, which illuminate our temporal existence in this world and support our evolution of conscious awareness of the patterns of our awakenings. This instrument/symbol parallels those of the First Nations peoples, who were, naturally, disturbed at the omission of circularity in the symbol displayed by their visitors five centuries ago. The fact that such a key symbol has been altered and re-defined as an instrument of torture meme, to be worn about the necks of millions of the "faithful", is the most telling and ugly description of human degradation and degeneration that has taken place over the last great cycle of the ages. It's long past due for this abomination to be corrected and its memory flushed and composted for a new cultivation of a sane and demon-free age waiting to burst forth from Gaia's soil.

A lot of folks have been increasingly writing about "the coming/ongoing/immanent retributive justice" blowing in the wind (for want of a better term). None can say when, nor clearly identify the agency for this hoped-for manifestation. It remains to be seen. But there's not a one with any Jah-given intuitive sense who does not feel it, like a natural mystic blowin through the air. I don't claim to be able to discern the agency nor the mode or scope of what looms before us, but, in the silence of natural contemplation, voices other than the spinning mind are heard, felt, and understood.
Something is taking place in Taiji, Japan, where the dolphins are being slaughtered every year by the thousands, as exposed in the award-winning film The Cove, and where the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society's 'Cove Guardians' have been bearing witness and documenting the daily events. The Guardians are being increasingly approached by normal Japanese citizens to hear words of support, praise, and honoring appreciation for what they are doing. They are being hailed as heroes and bowed to. The other side of this phenomenon is that people are stating that they themselves are afraid to openly stand up and criticize the killing, though they know it is terribly wrong. They are afraid to publicly question a "cultural practice", as well as an emotional affront to all decency. Sound familiar? I have myself wondered and questioned members of SSCS why it is that THEY seemingly have a policy of not showing EMOTION while confronting and in the presence of the killers whom they pass by daily. I have received no response.

This brings me to the point of this post. We know that psychopaths pride themselves on not feeling human emotions, and despise them as being stupid human weaknesses. I recently finished reading the phenomenal book by Derrick Jensen, A Language Older Than Words. In it is an excruciatingly detailed account of his own abuse at the hands of his father, as well as a detailing of the emotionally dead full history of the 'civilizing' of the 'savages' of the Americas and the land of this hemisphere. The process is identical. He speaks of his own decades-long process of resurrecting his emotional body from the childhood practice of disassociating into a void-place of non-feeling, non-knowing, and non-remembering. Culturally, this is what has taken place in western culture. We all know what the enabling institutions are.
Furthermore, this relates to the "language" in the title. He undertakes an exploration, with the aid of indigenous people, scientists, environmentalists and other associates, into the subject of "interspecies communication", which is the now-forgotten language. The experimental and experiential processes are fascinating, and well worth the read. He visits with the gentleman who, in 1966 as a police lie-detecter specialist, first noticed responses coming from his plants hooked up to electrodes. This person, who sparked the 'secret life of plants' phenomenon, has continued for 40 years to delve deeper into that world, eventually monitoring single-cell creatures and even protein molecules. EVERYTHING responds to EMOTION! That's the undeniable conclusion. Everything in creation. But is has to be raw, SPONTANEOUS emotion. We have all seen, of course, the frozen water crystal experiments documented by the Japanese scientist. So, this is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg (grin). Hell, Jensen himself kept hold on his sanity as a child by talking with the stars, and they responded! Too woo-woo for you? Too bad. It can't be explained. You have to be there. Uh huh..."animism", in this other language.

So, to bring it around to the present moment, it seems that one of the most critical endeavors we need to engage in is the healing of our Jah-given abilities to deeply listen, and express our deepest emotional responses to what is occurring with the destruction of all life, including our own bodies, and to recognize that EVERYTHING is feeling and responding to the ongoing process, including the dying bees, the dying bats, the beaching whales, the plants, the weather systems, the Sun, our ADD children, the insects, the soil, the oceans, and literally everything else. Following Julia Butterfly Hill's blog, I see this young lady who inspired a generation perhaps more than any Earthfirster in our lifetime, berating herself for still collapsing in an "emotional mess" due to her work and bearing witness. This is who we really are, my dear. All Life, itself, will be the agency for the coming changes and transformation.
A last word from Jensen's friend, Jeannette Armstrong: "Attitudes about interspecies communication are THE primary differences between western and indigenous philosophies. Scientists still think that 'listening to the land' is a metaphor. It's not a metaphor. It's how the world is."

Imagine Me Being Done

We've been heretics for 10,000 years. Been tortured, burned, drawn and quartered, racked, starved, imprisoned, beheaded, shot, droned, assassinated and destroyed by every method conceived by the psychopathic molesters of both mankind and our more-than-human sentient being brothers and sisters.

Our crimes have been 'wrong thinking', reading wrong books, illegal gatherings, consuming wrong medicines, disobeying 'authorities', following our conscience and common sense and ethics, obstructing the rape and ecological destruction of Mother Earth, protecting our children from predators, teaching what we know to be true, and anyone with half a brain knows the rest of the whole goddamned story...

We have acted and spoke and written and preserved and sacrificed for thousands of years, yet we are here today watching hundreds of species extincting every day, swaths of millions of acres of the natural world obliterated daily, millions of children unnecessarily starving daily, wars consuming innocents by the millions and resources and energy, watching our beloved, magnificent, creative, brethren and sistren's lives destroyed, communities trashed; and the horrors don't diminish, but increase exponentially.

I've completed what I started out to do here. I wanted to leave a record of who I am for my children, say some things that never got said, get shit off my chest, redeem myself in the eyes of ancestors and preceptors, and say how it looks around here from my eyes and heart.
Disgusted and tormented, I have nothing more to say. 

Possibly I will continue archiving my mridang traditional compositions and improvs. My brother is the one who encouraged me, still encourages me, to do this. And I haven't even got to the 14's and 10's yet on the YouTubes. Time will tell. I'm not, nor have ever been, 'in charge'. 
It's time for other Work. Dominos will be falling.

Prayers, curses, and forbidden emotions

Today (Dec. 5th) is the annual conference in Boston of the International Marine Mammal Trainers Association (IMATA). Never mind the fact that "marine mammal trainers" is a misnomer - people formerly involved in that ugly evil business clarify that it is the marine ones that train the land ones. I hope they are sufficiently, no disastrously, disrupted and mercilessly harassed. Dolphinariums, zoos and such 'animal' entertainments are nothing but hidden extensions of the bloody human anti-Life cult, and are due for total elimination; and their 'entrepreneurs' and sponsors due for life-sentences in cages at the absolute minimum. Having to watch their parents, relatives, and friends slaughtered, made to do tricks in a zoo would be poetic justice, but then we're not supposed to say such things.

Or rather, 'enlightened' individuals should not have these thoughts and emotional charges. Sometimes my attention is confined to the beauty with which I'm surrounded in my immediate environment, and so such feelings stay dormant. But, of course, any slight injustice, stupidity, or cruelty witnessed, overheard or referenced will instantly explode my brain and bring the blood to boiling. Waiting, for a lifetime, I long ago ran out of patience with the human race. My friend can't even watch a movie that depicts crowds of humans, let alone venture into town for more than a thoroughly logistically strategized hit-and-run, especially now with the 24/7 black fridays. Recent trips for art classes in town have made her physically ill. I return to the wildlife rehab volunteer mode of public participation to maintain some skills of co-operative interaction with the segment of humanity that gives a shit - about anything. Of course human stupidity is ever-present there too, in every case.

I can no longer 'care' about 'humanity', or "it's fate". I have no feelings whatsoever toward this abstraction, this conglomerate of incarnated somethings assumed to be a spiritually evolving collective entity inhabiting treasured human bodies. The contemplation of this part of the sentient world, as an abstraction, a supposed whole species somehow thought to be embodying a universally shared unique specialness and potential, brings up only the same emotional energetics that arise when I ponder the existence of a recombinant lab virus from Ft. Detrick, or a dysentery amoeba drifting up into the smog from the open sewers of Pahar Ganj in New Delhi. This 'humanity' is not something consisting of true human beings. Perhaps there was potential for masses of them to become such, over time and numerous incarnations during the last 10 thousand years even, let alone 10 million years. The opportunity was almost universally rejected and declined. Even now, at the culmination of the epoch/Kali Yug/Mayan Long Count, there's not only no interest in waking from slumberous fantasyland, but maximum stridency in lashing out, and projection of delusion, upon even the simplest gesture toward, or word of sanity. Silence has become the only operative option for walking through matrix-land, when that 'going to town' becomes necessary for fulfilling various survival needs.

What I do care about is the one-thousandth of one percent of 'humanity' that might be referred to as 'true humans'. People we encounter who are easily, clearly, recognized as awake; friends known through personal contact and through sharing hearts through these technological means; peoples struggling to maintain their Earth-connected lives and cultures; peoples under siege and resisting the machines of death; people thanklessly serving and caring for the 'least among us' in anonymity; people courageously overcoming fear to commit thought-crimes against the dogmas of demonic States of universal terror and planetary extinction. The young, the innocent, the artists, artisans, musicians, poets, honest fair-traders, educators, prostitutes of mind and body (from fear of bodily harm), activists for Life (not fetus-lovers), natural and energetic healers, nurturers, real philosophers, transition-facilitators, organic gardeners, sustainable-energy inventors, trauma specialists, first-nations defenders, renunciates (tyagis), sadhus, caretakers/protectors of the natural world and wildness, all those walking lightly on the Earth and respecting 'all my relations', the institutionally traumatized - the list is endless, but any of them can be recognized for their true human-ness.

Non-human species, sentient and innocent, constantly have my prayers for fulfillment and liberation. But the human-embodied 'organic portals', mindlessly indulging in and co-operating with pointless death and destruction, brainwashed into moral relativity, at this late 'time' - I cast them out of all consideration. I have no concern for their eventual 'liberation' or 'awakening'. Their chances have come and gone. 'Going along to get along' no longer has any relevance or meaning beyond a pathetic excuse to be pled to the gallows ax-man.
Empires always fall from overreach, but this is a never-before-achieved web of evil enveloping every land and sea from pole to pole, exercising its will over every life-form, not unified but all-encompassing by its various interlocking factions' overwhelming success at spreading the degeneracy of self-hate and hatred of Life throughout the races of men. But this new, almost ungraspable dimension of empire has finally reached and slammed against the walls of its limitations. It won't be long now, but it may seem to be long in coming - the fall.

The big 'Leaks' are one indicator of the qualities of the moment. Another indication and quality is exhibited in the frantic, hysterical reactions to the Leaks and the 'face' of the phenomenon, Assange. It is becoming clear who has what investments in which ideologies, as many web and other media presences whom we have taken as semi-objective are exposing themselves as equally suspect as the dominant death-culture's mouthpieces. I have used computers and the internet for 10 years only, but over that time have come to sort out the various sources of 'info' into categories of trustworthy, suspect, and disinfo. 99%, I now conclude, fall into the latter two columns, most heavily in the last. 'The Leaks' caper has consolidated my conclusions. The 100s of death threats are widely known. Assange and his associates and family members clearly fear for their lives. Draconian suppression of the distribution of info is beyond 1984-ish. The info is obviously not what the controllers want to see being spread and twittered. It's certain that this is just the tip of the proverbial shit-pile. Nevertheless, there is cacophonic howling by 'alternative' media sources using such phrases as "reverse psychology", "Israeli-sourced", "Mossad psy-op", "intel-agency dupe", "NWO agenda", even "gay agenda" [WTF?] and on and on.  Others also include the idea that it is a distraction 'for the sheeple', of little consequence, and will simply 'go away' eventually, if not sooner. Rense, Truthseeker, and that Ouija-board 'scientific' cult SOTT, and others promote this garbage. These and other similar sites have always had their taboo areas, and, as is common, will often flame and pile-on on anyone approaching their security-walls of Xtian, superiority-self-importance and all-knowingness. Fuck them, and give them no quarter. The only trustable truth or sanity out on the web is coming from bloggers like Les, Nina, Su, A.Peasant and a few others and the work of McGowan and a handful of fearless veil-rippers.

My prayers and heartfelt oneness in Love, in a generalized way toward any collectivity, only extends to the non-human world and Mother Earth. I have zero shame for my emotional responses and feelings and attitudes around the seemingly unstoppable horrors. I daily explain to the Japanese embassies that I am finished with expressing my displeasure in reasonable terms. I make it clear that all involved in allowing the slaughters are subject to the full force of holy curses by all powers in and around me and in the name of all saints, holy gurus, all elements and deities, all ancestors, kachinas, and the Almighty Jah, and unnamed others. So be it. I am no saint, but neither am I concerned with my own personal karma. I know all is cool with my gurus and allies and familiars, because they tell me so.
Ok, just in case, I went online and ordered my home self-flagellation starter kit from

In latest update from Cove Guardians you may hear the curses and sobbing emotions from the witnessing videographer. This is what's natural and human under these circumstances. A time will come when certain of these human-imposters will be 'taken out'. By what agency, I don't know. In what numbers, I don't know. I don't know if I'd weep if it reached 99%. Things may accelerate suddenly soon. The astrological aspects are reaching critical explosive configurations historically. There are other influences in play also, so nothing is predictable. I just know "fire is burning". My advice: stay outside of the town limits.

Extinctions, Wildness, and Angels

Artwork by Ron Cobb 1967

News flash: Senator says, "Denizens of darkness are waiting out there in temples around the city to shred this baby to bits."(12/1/2010) No...really, I'm not making this up. You can't make this shit up. Is that interesting apocalypse language or what? We'll come back to this later.

What can one possibly write about the culture-of-extinction/death-cult that hasn't already been covered by millions of words by some of the most eloquent culture-creatives from every corner of the Earth?
"Science-educators" have been publishing articles for at least 40 years on why extinction is of little or no consequence. They cover both non-human species as well as indigenous tribal peoples. The first place I encountered this was in the Smithsonian Journal many years ago. But big-science keeps crankin' out both the articles and the cranks who write them. They're not for academic review, but for public consumption. Maybe you never read these pieces, however they're just another subtle meme spread through the collective by the death-cult to prepare the serfs for planned future shock doctrine events. Nothing to get excited about. It's all just a natural part of life and evolution, you see.

Now we've arrived at the "future". Most didn't see it coming, nor do they see the coming cataclysmic conclusion slated for the final act. There won't even be Smithsonians to house the stuffed remains of the last specimens. Zoos will be emptied of the last-of-their-kind prisoners. A few 'pigoons', GM-hybrid escapees from Monsanto's labs, will scavenge amongst the detritus of lifeless suburbs till they're caught and eaten by the  neo-cannibalist survivors of the earthly endgame. It doesn't look hopeful, but there's always a chance that some of us can, and will, improvise away from the script.

Observing and listening to our non-human brethren and neighbors may give us the clues we need to other ways of being. The reality is that animals are always communicating to us (at least when they're not taking care of personal business). They are doing it almost all the time, and are intensely aware of our presence. However, our disrespect is what makes them bored, and us deaf. Is this what Derrick Jensen meant when he wrote "A Language Older Than Words"? Maybe. The languages of the animal nations were/are understood by our ancestors. As he also notes, animals should/could be our primary teachers. (They have been mine.) But then...we became insane. Afflicted with contagious malignant narcissism. (Narcissism has now been removed from the 'official' catalogue of mental illnesses! How cool is that?) Speaking of narcissism and the "zoo" reference (and Jensen) - his recent book, "Thought to Exist in the Wild" is another thorough analysis of the separation-from-Life roots of human insanity. He writes: "It may be flattering in an infantile sort of way to believe that everything is here to serve you, but in the real world where real creatures exist and real creatures suffer, it's pretty pathetic to pretend nobody matters but you." " fact the central conceit of this whole culture is that all these others have been placed here for us, that they do not have any existence independent of us..." Yeah, I think we all saw that.

As we proceed through the process of objectification to it's logical endpoint of totality, where non-human persons, then elements of the environment, then 'inferior' races, then women...we see it's all actually pornographic, ultimately any other human ceases to exist other than oneself and we can then finally erase the taboo against cannibalism. Which is exactly what we have, both in the highest elite satanic political-corporate circles and in the demonically-ravaged coked-out child-soldier wars in Africa..."shredding" of babies and children by the "denizens of the darkness", as referred to in the quote at the top of this post.  Expect more of this in the ongoing 'unveiling'. (Google "General Butt Naked")

This narcissistic negation of the real existence of 'other' is actually a total inversion, a backward, upside-down abomination and tragic caricature of an infinitely deeper mystical truth. For those who have journeyed in the shamanic realms of 'no-time', 'no-other', and received initiations of 'absolute responsibility for the creation of the universe' (and 'the origin of the universe' is now), and are the ones (in all times, in all places) who bring back the treasure-jewels from the goddesses' underworlds - the revelation-gifts for humanity - our separateness is both an illusion and the path through illusion to the ultimate truth of oneness - with all creation. 'Other' is nothing but part of our own self. Strangely, it can only be reached through everything 'other' - in this world. Every leaf of grass, every dragonfly, every redwood, every bison and dolphin and face of a beloved is a doorway into the divine truth of our (and all beings') simultaneous individuality-and-oneness paradox. These things are not supposed to be talked about, I am aware. But we are in pathless unknown territory now. Things previously un-accessible are no longer outside our grasp. We need to, as well, identify the fake divinity - death. And we need to realize that the innocence our species tortures and destroys in the forms of 'other' non-human individual persons is nothing other than our crucial connection to who and what we essentially are.

We've come a long way from Descartes, baby ("Animal-cries of terror and pain = machine noises"). Or have we? Where's that comet?
There is lately not only a ramped-up ('war on terror') campaign to defend animal 'research', but a ramping up of 'scientific' rhetoric to prove that we all need to eat more 'meat', because 'our ancestors always have' and because veg diet is unhealthy, as well as being a part of the depopulation agenda/plot. It's "scientific", O...K...!!!!???? So, it must be 'truthy', right?
Peter Kingsley has written about our western culture's primary philosophers of the pre-BCE Greek civilization. Two main characters ('gurus' of Plato and Socrates) were Parmenides and Empedocles, actually heirs to the perennial shamanic/mystery traditions, whose words and teachings were turned upside down by those (uninitiated) that followed them. It came to be (mis-)understood that 'reason' and 'logic' were what their gurus taught are the sure paths to knowledge and wisdom. Not.
They, and Empedocles in particular, had some things to say regarding our animal brethren too. "To kill animals and eat their flesh is not just an abomination but 'the greatest abomination of all'".... and "When the soul violates the strict ban on destroying life and eating flesh in Aphrodite's (worldly) charming realm,...this will not be its first fall from grace."
(Referring to the previous 'fall' from Divinity - into the mortal realm.)
"Every single human is an unconscious immortal. But this is the least of it. So are animals and even plants...Immortal life is everywhere, sacred, inextricably entangled..."
I guess we can take this however we wish. After all, truth is only self-discovered. But those are the words of prophets.

Those prophets taught that the path to wisdom and truth - through this reality - is the path of continuous, unbroken awareness and focus on what is right in front of us always. Sounds like Taoism? Tantra? Sufism? Very connected, these lineages.
Tupac Amaru

Watching the film "South of the Border" recently was enlightening on many levels. One was how the majority of the people in South American countries have not been swayed by having 90% of their media being fascistic and moronic. Another was the quote, given by Hugo Chavez, from Tupac Amaru, the Peruvian indigenous leader (non-human, of course) of the rebellion against the Spanish in the 1780's, when being tortured, drawn and quartered, along with his wife and children, exclaimed "I die as one, but I will return as millions!"

Check these three ladies out! One, with a law degree, says she "sold her business, her house, and her car" to campaign full-time for the sharks - THE SHARK ANGELS
