As I sway the bush of fire, the fire slaps me back
January 22nd, 2008 posted by tikgirl under Random Thoughts

In this age of reason, would it be permissible to urinate in your styro coffee cup if you are in a free way and you really need to pee yet there’s not a single visible gas station or public comfort rooms within a mile’s range?
It was said that psilocybic mushrooms (as par to incubus’ psychopsilocybin) connect us to the “overmind”, to the thoughts or ideas that give us new intelligence, new meanings to every day things, and very sophisticated understanding of the things around us. the wonderful mushroom gives us an opportunity to glimpse the real from the unreal, to grasp the unreachable, to get answers from the stars, to bridge the gaps between our consciousness to our subconsciousness.
indeed, the hallucinogenic mushroom has been abloom in the world for over five thousand years ago, back to where Egypt rules the intelligentsia of the world, where they have already acquired the perfection of mummification and the aesthetic and hygienic use of circumcision (and you thought the Jews, did it first. Ha!) and the perfection equation to build the perfect pyramidal buildings. what then? where am i heading?
well, obviously, the paganic Egyptians where the first ones to establish beliefs, knowledge, and obviously, integration. Their belief in the goddess, Isis (or Io, in Greece) and Astura (Ashtir in some), Mother Nature in her full splendor, gives us a hint into the difference that slices the cake between intelligence, advanced technology and free thinking, versus ignorance, backwardness, and dogma.
** **
when i say dogma, what comes into your mind, first?
According to what i’ve read recently, the city of Babylon, where Jezebel, the repulsed queen (whore for the Bible, but we’ll get to that, actually) placed her gypsy temple (well, that’s an understatement) and her paganic festivals and rituals, as well as her “vessels of divination” (the conch shell and the magical stick are appropriate) was crudely killed in an ambush made by a certain man (i already forgot his name, is it Jonas something? enlighten me); she died, or rather killed, by being fed to the dogs. only her hands were salvaged from the reckless imprudence of the bubbling, salivating, smelly dogs of the palace. Not a worthy price to pay after continuing one’s belief in a different environment, eh?
anyway, let me just tell you that Jezebel is a Phoenician. Yep, a pure blooded, gypsy wimsy, pagan Phoenician. her beliefs, or rather, their beliefs are as that of the salutations for Astura, for Mother Nature, for the world, not the people, and for nature, not for the human’s ability to destroy it. they were, shall i say, due to my lack of vast knowledge about them, nature-worshippers. they worship the sun, most especially the moon, the trees, the lakes, rivers, seas, even rocks and butterflies.
everything that is natural, everything about nature, they hold sacred.
now, when Jezebel married king Solomon, she was transported to a place where people worship only one God, although they don’t know what or who it is. the matter of their faith is the only thing that they hold on for, which, may i remind you, may have been undoubtedly be made by any other fellow who wants to give his countrymen something to hope for, just like their Phoenician counterparts. anyway, these people, according to their own beliefs, is that no one should believe in any other God other than their God. whoever digresses from it is insinuated as a heretic, an atheist, a pagan, a non-believer. this transforms as something very objectionable; very objectionable to the elders, and clergymen (assuming that they are implementing their own dogma towards that belief? hmm..).. and Jezebel’s act of building temples and shrines to contact the divine with her Inanimate objects, as well as her colorful and often very expressive (with signs of pornography, mind you. spill the beans time) festivities, this made the drools of those against the Phoenician tradition, the paganic rituals, and made them Oh so against Jezebel that they did what they wanted to do to her.
Execute the little bitch who is trying to poison the dull minds of these poor people. She is a big contender. and she may ruin our most established reli….
Okay, remember what i told you about the difference of intelligence, advanced technology and free thinking against ignorance, backwardness and dogma?
Exhibit A:
Intelligence and Advanced Technology vs. Ignorance and Backwardness

The Pyramids of Gyza, the temples of olmec, the stonehenge, the gangantuan statues of christmas islands and the vast library of Alexandria. the cute, little idea of making the rays of the moon to touch King Tutankhamen’s tomb in a specific time and date. the wondrous old medicinal use of herbs, dating back from five thousands years, in alabaster jars excavated under the land of the Fertile Crescent.
Aren’t these the wonderful, often mysterious, structures that early earthlings like us have made (which could have been waaaay above their time. how they’d managed, science is still wondering).
Palestinian war. The unbearable cruxifictions. Blood and holy wars. Those who were killed in the name of the Crusade. the farmers who were forcefully made to plant this and that but was never theirs. Torching of libraries (remember Nero?). Ceremonial killing of babies (and we thought that cults do that). The horned guy story that gave us the creeps, from television shows, to movies, and nightmares (which was the result of those exhibitions of power by those “higher” than us). Political merging with those high “faith” dealers, which resulted in the eradication of maternal beliefs, and paved the way to paternized belief…
these spooots, where did these came from? whose bloody hands had drawn this remorse over the world? how about the torched, ancient books, those old knowledge? Our society is now the result of the political system that was almost convenient in during those old times of “ruling” through “Divine Providence”.
Intelligence or Ignorance? Which has the advanced technology, which was backward?
Remember that Egyptians are astronomers, they study the heavens for the divine, while some on the same side of their part of the world, has shrugged divinity of the Moon, and followed spoot-knows-who-wrote some totalitarian writings.. they may have even altered these, according to their desires.. for hunger of.. p-o-w-e-r. Okay, I am generalizing.

Exhibit B:
Free Thinking vs. Dogma
Order is what the world needs. if there is order, everybody can live serenely, everybody would be able to live peacefully without the eventual crime or crimes done to them. How harmonious..
But then again, there would be no order if there is no chaos. How would we be able to distinguish ORDER if there is NO chaos? You must simply wonder.
Rules, totalitarianism, and limits surely gave us order. Aye aye, Sir. How did this helped us? it made us become decent civilians, concerned citizens, civilized humans.
Have you ever wondered why we, at the first place, we were given these? of course, for the simple logic of eradicating evil. But how would be we able to define evil?
is it because one killed someone? On what grounds did he killed that someone? Is he that evil?
How evil is evil? is it because a certain act has been condemned to be evil by that big fat book, which is full of ambiguous metaphors?
Let’s put it in this way. Neglect made people steal, kill and be depraved, repressed. Certain dogmas made them feel inferior, as if they believed that their original sin (i didn’t even tasted that apple! wait, is this a sure fire sign that our faith and piety is because of guilt, and not because of true belief?) have already tainted them with the polka-dots of the Seven Deadly Sins.
Guilt is a very big, fat, and juicy word. are we really guilty of things that we do not even know yet? Purification is good, yes.. but purely inhibiting purification of the self, yet making everything around you into the depths of pollution (be it the conscience, the mind,or the environment) is not a good way of purification.
Dogma has made us live in a very crude little world wherein we all have to abide by the rules or else we’ll get spanked by that someone-up-there. Oh yes, it did a lot of goodness for our own. But have we ever considered, my dear lovable reader, that these dogmas could have shaped the violence that our society now has been exhibiting?
As farming and herding is the ultimate lifestyle back then, people work and work and work, from all walks of life, from men to women, from children to ancients, and they have specific tasks in which they have to fulfill in order to make the community thriving. Those were the days were everyone vibrates the working aura; everybody gets what they worked for.
And in these times, festivals such as Saturnalia and Eostre, the winter and summer solstices, were made in favor of Mother Nature, for giving them good harvests, good crops and good herds and stocks.
the festivities are colorful, whimsical but with a bit of ritualistic silence, in order to maintain that certain height of the feast. They give out poetry and candle lightning ceremonies, food, and other good harvests that they had during the past seasons, and offer it to Mother Nature. Sure, people at those times are thankful enough to appreciate Mother Nature, Astura, Io, Isis.
Fasting, long hours on the pillar, and collecting “indulhensiya” from the farmers and others are the rituals of Christianity. And then, a feast would be given, but not before the strenuous sermons (often to make us guiltier even if, for example, we have worked hard and prayed hard, because of our original sin). Often, the rich and the clergymen, as well as those who are in the churches, get richly cooked food and deliciously seasoned birds, while the farmers, the poor ones, may eat what they have; what they only have. And that means, whatever they have planted and harvested, as long as where they planted it is the church’s property, then it is not theirs; and whatever they have grown from it is not theirs; therefore, they can live in eternal poverty and eat gruel or what-not after the fastings and the long hours of praying.
And still, breeding thoughts of inequality would make them feel guilty because they are making such a fuss over the rights of “those hand-picked by the Divine hand” and theirs.
** JEEZ.**
Pagans lived in their belief that is so potent with the heavens, the stars and the divine that they have worked it out harmoniously until Christianity took the serene beliefs and tore apart the shrines and made them believe that there is a God out there that would punish them if they did not submit to He’s power. it could be quickly noted that its a He, meaning the God is not Mother Nautre, but something else..
something else..
So, if it is not Astura, or Mother Nature, who gave us these wonderful waters, these vast lands, these astonishing greens, then who?
What is so “so much” of this one Divine Being that He allegedly made rules for us, on how to behave and what to believe?
There is, yes, a creator, but, unfortunately, there could be creators. The world was created by SomeHand. And so is paganism. And so is Christianity.
If everything is just made, then is it permissible to believe in one’s own vision? If yes, then why is there this “guilt” thing? Is it because it was dictated upon us, since we were wee kids, that we were born sinful, and that the only way to redeem ourselves is to swim with the flow of these rules, of these limits?
And how about Mother Nature? Is she dead? Where is she? Where is our mother wherein in her womb, we all sprung out?
Was she locked up on a cabinet of sorts?
Locked up, i guess. Shall we set her free? She might die from suffocation there.
In due time, when we have the key, or as long as we have devised such an instument to be able to cut through the steel chains of paternized beliefs.
