one’s personal fears, borne of one’s experiences of pain and trauma pervade our perceptions of these helping “psychic spots”; we see aliens, higher entities, & anything “not us” or unfamiliar through the “fog” of our individual vapors of pain.

*One at First Sees a God as a Demon Until One Is ‘Wholly’ Enough to Recognize Him”

With alien abductions, we have a parallel to what Castaneda expressed in his descriptions of the allies who in reality are just forces or “lights” but can be seen as everything from monsters to “leering men.” We also see parallels to John Lilly’s descriptions of the allies that came to him in his experiences.

An important aspect of this, again using the example of Castaneda, is how we manage to distort these encounters. It follows from our fallenness from grace into physical form that whatever we experience will be framed within the parameters of limitations imposed by our separation from the All That Is in this particular set of delusions which we call the biological body of the species human. But we know that our encounter with these foci of consciousness will be further distorted by our cultural apparatus (representing the second separation . . . second fall from spiritual grace).

Thus, not only will they come in some way physical or humanoid or form-like to us, representing that first instance of the fall as depicted in the creation of a physical species constitution. But they will also come colored with our cultural paintbrush … and therefore appear as Mother Mary, space pilots, or Trickster, depending.

*We See Our “Angels” Thru the “Fog” of Our Individual Vapors of Pain.“*

Finally, and extremely importantly, they will be further distorted and clothed by our personal experience in this separated state and, thus, very profoundly by our traumatic experiences here, especially our earliest ones.

What I am saying is that these spiritual foci of consciousness will be further colored by our individual pain. It is in this sense that Castaneda talks about the allies appearing like monsters to one person (in this case, himself) and to another person (la Gorda) as lecherous men who want her as a woman. In other words one’s personal fears, borne of one’s experiences of pain and trauma pervade our perceptions of these helping “psychic spots”; we see them through the “fog” of our individual vapors of pain.

Civilization brings brutal rites, excessive “masculinity”, and fear of the supernatural. Whereas primal folks laugh at the fears of “domesticated” humans and delight in flaunting their customs…

*Civilization Bringing Brutal Rites, Excessive “Masculinity”* … Indeed, Turnbull shows that these differences not only exist but that we see them distinctly in connection to the rites of passage that are undergone respectively in each culture.

The brutal rite of passage in question is called the *nkumbi* and is conducted by the villagers. The Pygmies — the “forest people” — undergo it, at a certain age, in order to gain certain respect and privileges in their dealings with villagers, as they must often have for various reasons. Nonetheless, of their own the Mbuti have no such rite of passage, certainly nothing severe and harsh like that of the villagers.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

On the other hand, Turnbull (1961) describes the villagers’ nkumbi: “The physical ordeals sometimes start out as games but develop into cruel tests of physical endurance. A crouching dance that might be fun for a few minutes becomes agony after half an hour. A mild switching on the underside of the arm with light sticks is of no concern until, after several days, the skin becomes raw. And then the villagers notch the sticks so that they fold over and pinch the skin sharply, often drawing blood. When the boys have become used to being beaten with leafy branches, thorny bushes are substituted.”

*Dominant societies try to instill fear of the supernatural to control their underlings.*

Turnbull also explains the villagers’ beliefs concerning this rite of passage and its effect and purpose: “The villagers believed that the initiate, Pygmy or otherwise, is everlastingly bound thereafter by all the laws of the tribe, sacred and secular. He is put into direct relationship with the supernatural, whose representatives on earth are the villagers themselves. If any Pygmy initiate offends a villager, therefore, he is also offending the supernatural — the ancestors — and will be duly punished by them. The villagers live in such fear of the supernatural, with its power to bring down on an offender the curses of leprosy, yaws, dysentery and other diseases or to cause him to be injured by a falling tree, that they cannot conceive of any initiates daring to offend the ancestors.”

*Primal folks laugh at the fears of “domesticated” humans and delight in flaunting their customs.*

But offend the ancestors they do, these Pygmies, and with apparent relish. They do not share the villagers fearful view of the world. They cannot imagine any good reason to inflict these tortures on each other. They laugh, secretly, behind the villagers’ backs, at them. Turnbull (1961) writes, “Both the boys and their fathers enjoyed the chance to make fun, in a friendly way, of the villagers, but that was not their sole reason for deliberately breaking all the taboos. They behaved as they did because to them the restrictions were not only meaningless but belonged to a hostile world. The villagers hoped that the nkumbi would place the Pygmies directly under the supernatural authority of the village tribal ancestors; the Pygmies naturally took good care that nothing of the sort should happen, proving it to themselves by this conscious flaunting of custom.”

Incidentally, if you think that disparity odd, consider, for a minute, how that is exactly the division of the modern culture war, at its base. We have fearful “villagers” not wanting to offend “ancestors” and customs of old — seeking essentially to return to a mythically construed version of the 1950s in America, for example. And on the other side, we have liberal-minded, often bohemian or hippie sorts, who laugh at such fear, inhibition, and general “up-tightness.”

Similarly, we “hippies,” and just like Turnbull’s Forest People, might undergo the “rites of passage” of the “villagers” — in our case, of the conforming “normals” of Western society — by going to university and getting degrees, for instance. However, we will most assuredly not take the fear and demands of the establishment world seriously. We also will laugh at them, those enmeshed in the Matrix … as we currently roflol at Trump, the current icon of such “villager” fear.

“Raising up walls of possessions, captive planetmates, and conforming underlings — including women and children —and retreating from the more magnificent and magical expanses of self, you sought to make a stand against real life”

Planetmates reveal, “Raising up walls of possessions, captive planetmates, and conforming underlings — including women and children —and retreating from the more magnificent and magical expanses of self, you sought to make a stand against real life”:

poster-lingkunganhidup13 (2)

“…Humans would rather have the “Joneses” be impressed with the amount and quality of their possessions … than to actually be happy.

“Look again at that work you created in the care and feeding of kept planetmates—husbandry: The work has to be done, they need to be fed, or you lose your investment. If you were sick, tired, or simply disinclined, it did not matter and you had to forego an ease and pleasure in your body as you bullied it into submission, just as you do the Earth. You needed to make your body move and work, regardless of how you felt or how you suffered or how much ill health would be incumbent upon such stresses and strains and unhappiness in your physical selves.

“Similarly, at certain times of the year, such as harvest, you worked under extreme pressure. The demands of completing the harvest and storing what was wrought before weather might come in and, again, neutralize all the results of one’s efforts made for very long days of back-breaking work. In these ways, in addition to all the others we have mentioned, you split off from Nature, for your body is Nature, and you operated it in spite of and often in opposition to its cries and screams, its promptings and messages to you. Is it any wonder then that you lost your ability to feel the fainter urges of the “instinct” within your body?

Self-actualization necessarily precedes liberation: In the spiritual literature it is as if the Integral — where one seeks enlightenment — is the only goal in life and one can attain liberation from any of the stages of life, which is not possible.

first there is a mountain, that is the Sensory. Then there is no mountain, that is the Recollective-Analytic. Then there is … this is the Symbolic-Existential. And at this stage of the Integral one has gone beyond even that, and one has merged into Self. And if still alive, one expresses and operates out of that Source. This is the stage of the individuated person, using Jung’s terminology. In the spiritual literature, much more is said about this stage of spiritual evolution than any other, for it is the one wherein one is on the doorstep of the “goal.”

However, that reveals a mistake as well. For although in Hindu culture these stages are reflected as the four stages of a human life, if one looks in the spiritual literature it is as if this is the only stage and one can attain liberation from any of the other stages of life. Whereas that is not the case.

“It is only then, turning downward our eyes in the face of the darkness and the seeming ‘end of times,’ that we can even notice our soul, our emotion, our connection with all and Everything, our true happiness, our actual heart expansion and love.”

Unplugging from the Matrix and Becoming Natural. Chapter 28 of *Prodigal Human: The Descents of Man* by Michael Adzema

The Abyss and the Labyrinth Versus Redemption, Re-membering, Reconnection with Body, Realization of One’s Felicity in Life and One’s Real Self,

“While our human game of total forgetfulness has become an oh-so-serious and inescapable one of ‘dungeons and dragons,’ that of planetmates is relatively pleasant, playful, child-like, and often comical, without the doom and gloom quality of ours.”

“It is only then, turning downward our eyes in the face of the darkness and the seeming ‘end of times,’ that we can even notice our soul, our emotion, our connection with all and Everything, our true happiness, our actual heart expansion and love.”

*Warriors* … When we first began killing our conscience, our empathy — stoically repressing our bodies and its feelings … including any guilt come of the hurting of other beings — we were only then able to kill others…

0044-legiondefygod300full-21

 

Would you say that Western civilization was bought with the “sacrifice” of the lives of indigenous peoples? Same thing. Ask them. Oh, that’s right, you can’t, we killed them. As always, we fail to see this issue clearly when looking only through the lenses of the dominators, the oppressors; we ignore the voices of the oppressed.

*Warriors*

You don’t think that a repression of the body and its passions is a killing of empathy? How do you think they are able to get men to march to the tune of others’ commands and murder upon their direction? Every skein of empathy and compassion must be slain inside soldiers first before they can kill others. Just like when we first began killing planetmates, we were able to murder other humans. When we first began killing our conscience, our empathy — stoically repressing our bodies and its feelings … including any guilt come of the hurting of other beings — we were only then able to kill others.

So, the secret of warriors?

It’s a lie.

There is no secret of warriors.

if we had less of these prenatal feelings of trauma, we would less often create situations that mirrored them. More often, we would create our lives out of our earlier joy grids, arisen out of earlier times in the womb — embryo, cellular, blastocyst, BPM I, ovum…

*Why Know This…In Case You’re Wondering* … The lesson to be taken from all this is not that our early life mirrors our adult, “real” lives. Something more important is being said: Having our lives suffused with these distorted feelings is not necessary, and the perceptions and deductions one makes from them are not instructive. They are wrong interpretations of what is going on. They are “unreal” … when we once again experience them as adults. They are very early components of what becomes, later, our unreal self.

These feelings are rooted in forgotten memories, imprints we carry from early experience, and they are not rooted in actual circumstances. Certainly, we create a reality that matches these feelings, but the feelings are there first. And if we had less of these feelings, we would less often create situations that mirrored them. More often, instead, we would create our lives out of our earlier joy grids — rooted in earlier times in the womb, which were blissful and proximate to Divinity; in our cellular existence, which was at times euphoric; and/or in that state of No-Formity and Divinity before even coming into Form. These joy-prints would be … and can be … our foundation, our template, for living. However, almost invariably we grow our lives and actions out of the soil of our pain grids — the pain templates, if you will — which are created out of these traumatic prenatal experiences
