let us prey

I think I need to talk about the "Good Guise" and the "Bad Guise".

To get there though, I need to think about the idea of The Goddess. Joseph Campbell was pretty enamored of The Goddess.  My summation of his conclusions of the esoteric beliefs of various peoples is that the universe is her womb.  She is the everything.  He speaks very highly of her.

Recent posts at The Secret Sun and Gosporn have taken me back to "Crazy Town".  Part of Life is Death, but  how do we usually Celebrate

So I saw The Da Vinci Code.  It was Dan Brown's supposition that The Goddess had been subjugated by "the bad guys".  In his order, the Templars = good, and The Catholic church = bad.  Maybe this was the beginning of my descent into "Crazy Town".  OK, bad and good.  Easy enough, right?  Well, no.  You start poking around and eventually it seems that "the bad guys" are all on the same team.  Who are the bad guys?  The Church?  Illuminati? The Templars? Skull and Bones? Freemasons? Republicans? Democrats? The whole U.S. Government?  Just the FED?  The UN?

And what exactly is the plan of "The bad guys"?  One world government?  Total control? Did you know that Joseph Campbell wanted a one world government as well?  Because, if everyone is part of the in-group, mindless oppression becomes more difficult.

Consider our Capitol:  Washington D.C.--District of Columbia.  
District of Columbia (abbr.: DC or D.C.)
a federal district of the U.S., coextensive with the city of Washington, on the Potomac River with boundaries on the states of Virginia and Maryland.

district |ˈdistrikt|
noun (abbr.: distr.)
an area of a country or city, esp. one regarded as a distinct unit because of a particular characteristic : an elegant shopping district.
a region defined for an administrative purpose : the city school district.
( the District) the District of Columbia; Washington, DC.

Columba |kəˈləmbə| Astronomy
a small and faint southern constellation (the Dove), near Canis Major. It is sometimes said to represent the dove that Noah sent out from the Ark.
[as genitive ] ( Columbae |-bē|) used with a preceding letter or numeral to designate a star in this constellation : the star Beta Columbae.
The Dove in Christianity is the spirit, the soul.  And so, is our National Capitol a distinct region of spirit?

One of the interesting bits I picked up somewhere, probably from The Tarot and the Journey of the Hero is the idea of our world's dualism and our desire to identify with one extreme as "better". Republicans right now are "the bad guise".  However, was that always the case?  Is light "better" than dark? That might be a pretty stupid question to begin with.  I don't know. Our current spilt is seen in Red vs. Blue.  Which one are you?

Notice the V's on Sark?  Do those stand for Venus?  Is The Goddess OK with this warrior culture, or is this part of her subjugation?  Here is some of Sark's dialog.  It is pretty standard "Crazy Town", One World Government, New World Order stuff (and it is the Republicans doing it?):
Sark: [paces back and forth on the deck of his carrier as he addresses his new recruits] Greetings. The Master Control Program has chosen you to serve your system on the Game Grid. Those of you who continue to profess a belief in the Users will receive the standard substandard training that will result in your eventual elmination. Those of you who renounce this superstitious and hysterical belief will be eligible to join the Warrior Elite of the MCP. Each of you will be given an identity disc.
[Displays his own disc to the crowd]
Sark: Whatever you do or whatever you learn will be imprinted on this disc. If you lose your disc or fail to follow commands, you will be subject to immediate de-resolution. That will be all.
Can we fight "the bad guise"?  Sure it seemed that the neo-cons were trying to instigate the fourth reich, but were they really?  I mean, Bush is the devil?  I hear this so often.  He wants souls and feeds upon suffering? So then Obama is obviously one of "the good guise"  The Republicans (all of them?) are the dogs of war, the wolves, but then who do they serve?
G'mork: If you come any closer, I will rip you to shreds.
Atreyu: Who are you?
G'mork: I am G'mork. And you, whoever you are, can have the honor of being my last victim.
Atreyu: I will not die easily. I am a warrior!
G'mork: Ha! Brave warrior, then fight the Nothing.
Atreyu: But I can't! I can't get beyond the boundaries of Fantasia!
[G'mork laughs and Atreyu gets a little angry]
Atreyu: What's so funny about that?
G'mork: Fantasia has no boundaries.
Atreyu: That's not true! You're lying.
G'mork: Foolish boy. Don't you know anything about Fantasia? It's the world of human fantasy. Every part, every creature of it, is a piece of the dreams and hopes of mankind. Therefore, it has no boundaries.
Atreyu: But why is Fantasia dying, then?
G'mork: Because people have begun to lose their hopes and forget their dreams. So the Nothing grows stronger.
Atreyu: What is the Nothing?
G'mork: It's the emptiness that's left. It's like a despair, destroying this world. And I have been trying to help it.
Atreyu: But why?
G'mork: Because people who have no hopes are easy to control; and whoever has the control... has the power!
Atreyu: Who are you, really?
G'mork: I am the servant of the power behind the Nothing. I was sent to kill the only one who could have stopped the Nothing. I lost him in the Swamps of Sadness. His name... was Atreyu.
[the ground shakes again and Atreyu is knocked down. He grabs a knife shaped piece of broken stone and stands up, ready to fight]
Atreyu: If we're about to die anyway, I'd rather die fighting! Come for me, G'mork! *I* am Atreyu!

Control is the big issue.  What is the object of the game?  To be a winner, people must loose, correct?  How can you spot a winner?  We are addicted to form,  to material, to MONEY--To EGO! So part of the "the plan" of the "the bad guise" is to own and control everything, and they, the masons, the illuminati, the cabal of bankers, have been implementing their plan over the course of how many years?  Thousands? Really?!!! But, they have almost absolute control and unlimited power because they own everything, and are the government, and. . .

No.  And here was my "Crazy Town" road block.  Because the conspiracy eventually becomes all encompassing, going back not hundreds, but thousands of years. I have problems swallowing this, and subsequently fearing of their evil designs. Follow though, there are people who want power and will do anything to get it.  And there are some pretty strange things under heaven on earth, but as far as the all-encompassing conspiracy, I can't buy it.  It is almost, like the group of conspiracy believers have taken their faith from an all powerful, vengeful God, and placed it in an all powerful, vengeful conspiracy. But how does one explain strange phenomena?  The synchroncities? Coincidences?  You know all the X-files?  

Either, a). God is a Fucker, or b). the conspiracy does actually have god-like powers to influence and control every aspect of the media but has an unbelievable delay of gratification along with a glacial rate of implementation, or, or what? c).  Aliens.  Do we make the jump to space? No, I can't do it.  The illuminati witches are calling to their Alien overlords to return to earth?  Why did they leave?  Actually a large portion of this post is in response to questions posed at The Secret Sun.  It was the piece of sand in my soft under-meat that I'm trying to deal with:
So ask yourself- why are we bombarded with all of this ancient symbolism all of the time- in films, on TV, in advertising? Why is there this vast network of secret societies that pick and groom the best and the brightest among us to get us all to dance to their tune? What is the New World Order really all about? What's the point of any of it?

Now ask yourself this- what could be that secret that people would be willing to die for? How about this: human beings were engineered somehow through whatever science we are only now beginning to understand, by beings who left the planet and will come back one day to take control once again. And maybe- just maybe- they are still in contact with a few of us and have been working behind the scenes to prepare their return. That sounds a bit more urgent than some spiritual or mystical ruminations, no?

What if all this symbolism we're seeing is all part of some ceremony, some strange ritual meant to summon these beings back to Earth? Or even freakier, what if it's a kind of "Welcome Home" party?

It's hard to believe, it sounds crazy to some people. You don't have to believe it. But what if they do?

It's funny- we accept that baseball players have all sorts of strange, superstitious rituals they perform before a game or before they go to bat. We've got thousands of years of rituals before wars, before a ship is launched or before a new leader is seated. We know that a strange new death cult has appeared among drug runners in Mexico. We have a whole host of religious traditions with billions of adherents in which people beg and cajole gods and angels who travel back and forth from the heavens (read: outer space) and act pretty much the way the gods in the ancient myths of Sumer and Egypt did.

So what's so hard to grasp about politicians in a governmental system created by Freemasons- the spiritual descendants of a priesthood dedicated to bringing the gods back to Earth- doing the same thing? Especially when the stakes are so much higher?

I don't really have an answer to this.  There could very well be aliens.  I can't deny this.  It is a big universe. Why did they leave though?  I just watched Escape to Witch Mountain.  It was about two little kids trying to get back home, to Sirius!  Yes, they were aliens, but they didn't know this until they became old enough to understand their star-map.  Should we read this movie literally, or is it an Eckhat-Tolle-type flowering of consciousness? Could it be both? When will we be old enough to understand our star-map? I don't know if the literal aliens will siriusly arrive in the third act in a crystal ship and take me to the moon. It could happen. We might become bees that are trained to make them honey, but maybe we already are bees making them honey.

This doesn't explain the all-encompassing synchroncity that The Secret Sun mentions prior to his alien theory.  Jung's collective unconscious does a better job of addressing this.  The artists are tapped into the source and bringing our collective dreams to us in film, books, TV, in art, music, etc. 

Sometimes we accuse a person with a negative mental attitude of creating their own darkness. We say that the crisisses in their lives are trying to tell them something; are trying to wake them up.  

But to return to my original focus, who is this Goddess?  If she is the universe, can she be subjugated?  Now we definitely live in a patriarchal society with dominant, male Gods.  That's subjugation, but does she stand for anything? Love? War? Does she have a symbol?

The pentagram has long been associated with the planet Venus, and the worship of the goddess Venus, or her equivalent. It is also associated with the Roman word lucifer, which was a term used for Venus as the Morning Star, associated with the bringer of light and knowledge. It is most likely to have originated from the observations of prehistoric astronomers.[3] When viewed from Earth, successive inferior conjunctions of Venus plot a nearly perfect pentagram shape around the zodiac every eight years.~from wikipedia.

This is a natural symbol, though, right?  The Goddess stuff could be baggage?

I found a fairly interesting piece about "The Pentagram" by Jenifer Emick at about.com. (I have no idea about their illuminati leanings nor the state of their "guise".  My questions isn't with the symbol, but with the idea of the Goddess.  I suppose that I just figured out my question.  Is the Goddess a fucker? Maybe I should rephrase that because of the gender.  Well how about I show you the people who adorn themselves with her symbol?

If you read all of Christopher's post at The Secret Sun, you noticed that he equates the star in the above poster with Sirius.  So, Sirius is bad = war/hate, and The Goddess is good = peace/love?

I don't think so.  The Goddess is the all.  Yin and Yang.  Positive and Negative.  Love and Hate. Peace and War. Is she God and the Devil? Yet we can't understand the totality and must interpret her in opposites because this is our perception of the world, perhaps?

But Jung's collective unconscious isn't a very warm blanket at night.  This is why it is called crazy town.  I found a couple of videos.  I don't normally or necessarily agree with all, part or any of the videos that I embed.  I find them thought provoking and post them.  These are thought provoking to be sure, to be sure, but I don't know what I believe, and that is why I'm always on the lookout for the truth.

Chew of this coincidence before my looney tunes:

Episode # 06-52 / 1516th Show
To Be Aired : Monday 12/25/2006 through Sunday 12/31/2006
"Celebrate New Year's Eve Again With
The New Year's Eve Star"

Horkheimer: Greetings, greetings fellow star gazers. Every year I encourage you to celebrate New Year's Eve the cosmic way because if you happen to go outside at the stroke of midnight every New Year's Eve you will see something very special which I like to call the New Year's Eve star. Let me show you.

O.K. We've got our skies set up for 8 p.m. your local time this Sunday December 31st New Year's Eve facing due south. And first like all good astronomers let's draw an imaginary line from the due south horizon straight up to the zenith point overhead and then down the other side of the sky to the horizon due north. This line is called the meridian and it divides the eastern half of the sky from the western half. Now as our Earth slowly and endlessly rotates from west to east we are treated nightly to the grandest optical illusion in nature that of watching the stars appear to rise in the east, slowly travel across the sky all night long and eventually set in the west. And if you watch the stars every single night you will eventually deduce that the highest point any star reaches above the horizon in its nightly journey is when it is on the meridian.

Now this is very important to telescope users because the higher a sky object is above the horizon the better its telescopic image will be. So several years ago when I was researching which planets would be high up off the horizon for viewing that New Year's Eve I stumbled across something which to me was and still is an amazing coincidence, something which I had never read about in any astronomy book. That coincidence is that no matter where you happen to be on New Year's Eve, Sirius the brightest star we can see will slowly climb up the southeastern sky hour after hour and at midnight will reach its highest point almost on the meridian. Think of it, the brightest star visible from our planet reaches its highest point above the horizon at midnight every New Year's Eve.

How wonderful, how poetic. Almost like a cosmic reminder that this most brilliant of stellar lights is welcoming in and shining on the New Year giving us all hope for a bright new beginning. And even better if you happen to miss it on New Year's Eve because it's too cold or cloudy out, don't fret because Sirius will be in almost the same spot at midnight each night for the first week of the New Year. And think about this as you gaze up at Sirius this New Year's Eve. While our Sun is a million mile wide, relatively cool, yellow star Sirius is a much hotter almost twice as wide white star. And it's very close cosmically speaking, only 8 1/2 light years away which means that when we look at Sirius this New Year's Eve we will actually be seeing the light that left it 8 1/2 years ago in June of 1998. So step outside at midnight this Sunday night and make your New Year's Eve bright with cosmic light. Happy New Year and keep looking up!

Indeed. I find myself returning to your blog again, our paths always seem to cross on this heroes journey.

I had just finished watching Kung Fu Panda before I read your latest post. A very interesting movie. The heroes journey, fate chooses and shapes the path you walk, you have little choice in the matter (you have already made the choice, you just need to know why you made it).

The film is about Lucifer, our fallen star, who wants the Dragon Scroll, so wages a war on Heaven, but is cast down. He is our Ego of course, demanding unlimited power and control, a NWO of terror. Our reluctant hero the Panda is the only one who can stop him. And why is that? He is not the best fighter, he is fat, he gets tired climbing stairs.

But he knows one thing which helps him defeat Lucifer, that there is no "secret recipe", the scroll is blank, there is only the journey and there is only you. It is you against yourself, it is all life ever is, you and your worst fears. The illumanati, NWO etc is US, I, WE, it is all it can ever be because we are all there is and all there will ever be. Our hopes and fears, dreams and nightmares. In 1984, Winston Smith goes into Room 101 (the stargate) and he faces HIS worst fear, Big Brother himself and he loses and gets the bullet in the back of his head.

At the end of the film we get the same scene as in the end of Matrix Revolutions, Neo and Smith in the crater (creator) Smith has his enemy where he wants him and says "everything that has a beginning must have an end, Neo", everything begins and ends with The One. Then in both films we get our dark and light merging, leaving only The One remaining.

Funny that you mention a Jennifer, I read a post on HiddenDakini on that very subject. I left a message stating that Gabriel is the fallen one, he is Lucifer (Ego) and I also link him to Adam. Adam and Eve were one remember? She came from his rib, Gabriel is both Male and Female.

Thanks for taking the time to read it. I think I might have to watch Kung Fu Panda with my children. I've been on a Disney "space" movie phase though and think that I also need to see The Cat from Outer Space.

Obviously our heads are in the same space. I've been listening to Eckhart Tolle A New Earth a little lately. I'm the last person to this, but I'm really enjoying it. I love how the field one uses to get to the center eventually dissolves into the same thing. How do you get to the center? Philosophy? Math? Music? Art? Mythology? Psychology? Religion? Literature? All these paths lead to the same source and eventually become the same path. The specialty losses its meaning and just becomes a search for truth.

Thanks again.

If you are into Disney space movies then I'd recommend watching the first ever Disney feature film, The Black Hole http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0078869/

Why? Because one of the main stars is Robert Forster, who is currently in Heroes as "King" Arthur Petrelli!
