The Eighteenth Descent — Culture:

The Matrix — “Wrong-Gettedness” and the A-mazing Cultural Maze … Strutting and Fretting, Signifying Nothing

“Such a fury we unleash, so as to create the smoke and mirrors of distraction and to keep us from the otherwise insidious trickling knowing of our horrifying creations and the gnawing abyss of dissatisfaction and unknowing inside us.”

The expulsion from Paradise that came with sedentary ways demanded increasingly complex, however vapid, entrancements — ritual and mores — of culture as compensation, however empty, for the loss.

In becoming increasingly dominating, sycophantic, and emotionless, we created an emptiness within. To compensate, we created outside us in our social environment a maze-like, fantastical panorama — likened most recently to a matrix.

In this chapter I disclose the horror we do not want to know about ourselves and our beliefs.

Wrong-Gettedness … Culture

So the advantage to the survival of the individual newborn — however rooted, as it was, in the twisted motivations of the adults tending to them — of learning to be obsequious, inauthentically pleasing, and repressive of one’s needs and expression became also the backbone of what humans call culture. For the lack of direct inner knowledge — the lack of connection to instinct, for example — that characterizes humans and was increasingly selected for with the predominance of controlling-conforming-appealing-nonexpression traits in humans, led to the ever-expanding overcomplexity of the obvious simplicity of existence. Humankind grew ever more fanciful and unnecessary traits, needs, desires, behaviors, wants, obsessions, compulsions, beliefs, visions, and thoughts — all subsumed under Ego — out of this separation from natural ways, this split from Nature, this estrangement from the Divine, this “expulsion from Paradise.”

On the societal level, the cumulative result, or manifestation, of all individual egos — with all their infinite, however twisted, complexity — is what we term culture. Culture is the human substitute for the instinct we would otherwise have, just as Ego is the substitute for Self — Self meaning identity with Divinity. Being a separation from Divinity and Nature, culture is a separation from Truth as well. The Unapproved and Hidden — the Truth of humans not contained in any culture and whose essence is revealed in this book — is Truth that we do not know … cannot and will not know. Culture is what we erect in its stead: It is the overt representation of wrong-gettedness.

Is Culture Untrue?

“Is culture all untrue?” you are thinking. Well, no. It is true in a limited way. It is true in the same way the world is known to be flat. That is, within certain limitations it has its truth and hence its usefulness. Yet it is set in a context that is not true … not at all. And that context skews the results of all the contents of culture, making them of dubious worth.

At this point you should have a pretty clear understanding of what I mean by that, as I have given many examples. For instance, that life is hard and a struggle is true for virtually all civilized folk of all time. Yet it is given a different light when it is known that it does not have to be, is not in Nature, and was not even for us for most — in fact, for ninety-nine percent — of our existence as a species. That life is a struggle is not true in the larger context of what is possible and natural for humans and what is true for virtually all life of all times, except for humans in the few thousand years of civilization.

Language Helps and Hinders

Similarly, language is an aid in communication, yes. But from the larger perspective of the Unapproved and Hidden, it is a flawed substitute, a symbolic and roundabout way, of conveying messages: Not only does it confuse and obscure as much as it reveals and conveys, but the psychic, direct transmission of information that is its alternate in Nature is far easier and far more accurate.

Not only the mind-sharing of Nature is superior, but human mental confusion keeps us from another of our planetmates’ advantages. For planetmates do not need language for they know more clearly what is going on without it being needed to be communicated. They can pick up instantly from the body language, the scent, and the facial and muscular expressions of others, together with the positioning of every element in any scene, more than could ever be communicated, by one to another, in language about what is going on in that scene.

For one thing planetmates can deduce far more accurately what is going on, since it is not being skewed or spun through the personality or agendas of any other. Added to this, they have far more information being conveyed to their senses, other than what could come from language. We can see this in the way canines are able to discern many thousands of times — up to a million times! some researchers report — more information from scent. Still, that is only one sense of many used by planetmates. We say animals can “smell fear.” That is a trite example of the fact that planetmates are sensing far more of what is going on than humans are and they cannot be dissembled to … unlike humans with their language abilities who are so easily able to be fooled. So what would need to be communicated if it is already known? And known more accurately than one would get it as once removed, communicated to one through another?

Thus, human language is an aid in communication in the smaller context of human relationships and in that of being able to be written down and “stored” for use at a later time and to be disseminated to others, sometimes many others, without direct contact. However it is perhaps not an advantage, more likely it is a hindrance, in relation to the one-on-one communication that is possible otherwise for beings on Earth.

Culture Substitutes Itself for Natural Morality

Another instance: Remember I was saying, using the example of Abraham and Isaac, how if we had not been convinced otherwise by our pedagogy we would naturally see an example in that story of a murder being espoused by a supposed “god” and a sacrifice that would not be one for Abraham, predominantly, but for Isaac, who would lose his life? A grade-schooler hearing this story for the first time does not see in this any kind of interaction with a Divine being, rather one of murdering impulses within a person in a way that later the term psychotic could be applied. That is, until culture comes along to “teach” the child otherwise.

Like planetmates, children have a natural morality — where suffering, pain, and death are bad, and pleasure, freedom, and happiness are good — until forced to think otherwise … until “enculturated.” For, within the domains of culture, no one questions Abraham’s behavior as being holy or righteous; nor the interaction with the “supernatural” as being anything but with a “god.” However, in the larger context of feeling — the natural morality built upon innate empathy, love, and caring — which any planetmate or child would apply here, it is viewed as nothing less than insanity.

Similar things could be said for our understandings of love, our conceptualization of God, our feelings about extending kindness, and what it means to be a good person: All are what we think them to be, but only within a particular context. Beyond that, they are seen to be false, twisted, and corrupted.

The “Good” Person

Let us take one of those and using it as an example make it clearer what I mean. Let us look at what, in the context of culture, we proclaim to be a good person: The “good” people of our cultures put a lot of effort into doing the “right” actions and thinking the “right” thoughts. They engage in endless hours of religious nodding, bowing, and mumbling — what we call ritual and prayer — to “please” these Phantom gods of ours. Very few people would not attribute qualities of “holiness,” goodness, and even saintliness to such people. But are they good?

“Good” people will also work, uncomplainingly, at the tasks assigned to them by controlling others, whether that be higher ups in the society — the Large Accumulators, the Controllers — or in the family, where that role is taken by husband and father in his dealings with his “good” housewife and his “good” and obedient children. Very few people would consider such compliant people to be other than the “salt of the earth,” good housewives, well-behaved boys and girls, “hard-working, god-fearing, real” Americans … Germans … (insert your nationality here).

And Sycophancy, Thought Control, Obedience, and Self-Control

However, from what I have been telling you, it should be clear that the deferential and obedient of us, in the context I am presenting, can be seen as fearful sycophants who are confusing childhood admonitions — backed by terrorizing threats — to “be good little boys and girls and behave” with adult nobility and spirituality. Yet one might ask, what is wrong with that? Are they not “good little male and female adults”?

Well, yes and no. Here is where something is true within a certain limited area, within a narrow context, but is not true when viewed against the totality of Truth. For these people will seek to wrestle with their very thoughts so they will not have “bad” ones. They will repress any urges to complain, in adherence to a cultural value system that embodies obedience and control.

We say that their control of themselves — inside and out — their discipline, their conformity make them wholesome, “holy,” or “good citizens.” But, for starters, how can a person have only good thoughts and not bad ones? In actuality, we have no control over our thoughts at all. We have only some control over our actions; we can act or not act upon our thoughts. Hence anyone telling us they have control over their thoughts is really saying they are liars — to themselves, as well as the rest of the world — about what goes on inside them.

One cannot unthink a thought. What happens is, some thought occurs to us, which we, according to the morals instilled in us, deem “not good.” It has happened, the thought; one cannot unthink it. But these sorts of people will then have a fearfulness, however un-acknowledged and blocked from their awareness, that arises in them directly after that thought. That fearfulness comes from those forces I have been describing: It is a fear about pleasing more powerful others, and it has its roots in childhood, going all the way back to infancy, and even before. It is a fear of being punished or deprived of things for what one simply is … in this case, just having a thought that arises unintended — “naturally.” And one cannot help having this fear of the Other. It might even be said such fear is “natural” for humans, considering what all we have become as a result of our hellish womb experiences, traumatic births, and deprived infancies.

On Sewage and Flowers

So we have a random but natural “bad” thought and an unfortunate but natural fear arising in us. But what does this “holy” and “good” person do? This holy person tries to force the mind to go onto another thought that is not a “bad” one. It is like the first thought, using an analogy, would be “sewage.” The next thought would be “oh, no!” The next thought, the concocted or replacement thought, would then be “flowers.” But here is where the lie is. For the person keeps telling themselves they are thinking “flowers,” however they are lying about the fact that they are really thinking “flowers not sewage,” “flowers not sewage,” “flowers not sewage,” over and over again, trying to push the first thought out of their mind, and along with all that having a feeling of fear and trepidation.

Clearly, this upstanding citizen, this self-sacrificing mensch, this “good” father, this “good” mother, this “holy” thinker, this “positive thinker,” is really not whole or positive at all. This person is a fearful sycophant, acting fearfully out of early experiences which they will never, ever remember, spending so much time thinking, “I will not think sewage, I will think flowers,” that they will never, ever find out what the thought after “sewage” might have been, if they had not fought it so much. And, yes, on its own, it just might have actually been “flowers.” And I can tell you, sooner or later it would have been … and sooner than comes of fighting it.

This person is a narcissist, therefore, caught up in a focus only on themselves and how they might be coming across to others; is a sycophant trying to please imaginary others by conforming their behavior to them; and is a liar, not telling the truth about their experience inside of themselves to either themselves or anyone else. In the next chapter on soul murder, we will look at how this can even extend into sociopathy.

Oh, you think good people and sociopaths are on the opposite ends of a continuum? You have probably also been confused as to how sociopathic killers — the Ted Bundys, Jeffrey Dahmers, John Wayne Gacys, and their ilk — can come across as such well-behaved and “nice” citizens. You probably are not either seeing how some politicians and CEOs are getting their power by seeming to be so upstanding but are at the same time working behind the scenes to take all they can at anyone’s expense and regardless who or how many die of it. More in the next chapter.

For now, the saddest part of all this is that this person, in holding back “sewage,” becomes full of “sewage” … all the while she or he is thinking they smell like and are full of “flowers.” The people around them know they are full of sewage. But those others, being often sycophantic also, are busy telling themselves the swill they see is really flowers.

Here we have an example of how wrong-getted we are able to become and how it spreads. We can see how culture aids and reinforces our wrong-gettedness and separation from the Truth of us. By this I mean that cultural values — concurrent with civilization and not with nomadic and presedentary ones — have become construed along lines to honor and reward the sycophantic, inauthentic, lying, and manipulative; and to punish the noble, authentic, the honest, and the guileless.

“Good People” Games … “Good” Actions and Hypocrisy

However, not just thoughts are controlled by “good” people. The same is true for such a person’s “holy” and “upstanding” acts. Such a person might put out their hand to another, but on some level they are thinking, “I will be nice to you, so that I do not hit you.” Yes, these people are what we call hypocrites.

You might be thinking, they are holy and good people and are not having the thought, “I want to hit you.” Still, this is what happens when the “sewage” gets backed up. A stored-up reservoir of unapproved thoughts ever pushes for release by any means, for attention from consciousness at all costs, even if they have to come out in a distorted form — an impulse/thought to hit another. On the macro scale, this is what we as a species have done in creating and then acting out the Unapproved and Hidden, which belongs to us, collectively. This end result — the Unapproved and Hidden — is the product of the billions of unallowed thoughts, lies, and denials of all the “good” people of our culture.

The example of the hateful urge to hit, rather than lovingly help, is only a crude example, of course. It does have roots deep in our unconscious, though, and extending back thousands of years. We put out our hand to shake another’s, for example. What this is really saying is, “My hand is not a fist. I will not hit you.” “My hand is open to you — in giving and receiving mode, sharing mode — and not in a competitive or aggressive mode.” “In putting out my hand I will connect with you, and not use it to fight you.” Lastly, and most recently, “My hand does not contain a weapon.” Now, why, unless a part of us knows that deep inside we would as soon hit another as anything else, would we go through all this social ritual of hand-shaking and its variants? All of its variants say similar things.

On another note, why, unless a part of us knows deep inside that we are as likely to be attacked by Other as friended by it, do we feel such relief upon the offering of said gestures? This goes to the inherent defensiveness of “normal” and “good” people that other “good” people know they had better appease by offering their hand … for reasons not much different than a primate would offer its behind to an aggressor.

By the way, that unusual defensiveness of humans arises from those early human experiences of feeling attacked by Other through the traumas prenatally and perinatally, which are then reinforced in infancy, childhood, then again in cultural rites of passage. Note that this human defensiveness is unusual in its occurrence, happening much more frequently than in planetmates. For it arises in all social situations, all, even one-on-one interactions and not just in situations of actual potential aggression, as in primates.

In any case, it is that in real life those deeper messages of wanting to hit and fearing one will be hit are inaccessible to us. What we might be aware of that goes on in us — but rarely are — is less obviously hostile. It is more subtle, is most often unconscious, and becomes increasingly more unconscious over time, in the course of one’s life … hence more likely to direct our actions in spite of us. The “negative” thought — “I want to hit you” — might arise in the form of irritation, repulsion, or dislike … or a simmering anger. We can actually feel that, but we will rarely admit those feelings occur in us … forcing ourselves, instead, to “think flowers,” again. You know what I mean.

Meanwhile, the negative thought or feeling, “you are going to attack (are attacking) me!” is not felt either. Rather, it comes out elsewhere, too. It is channeled unconsciously into all kinds of behaviors of introversion as well as defensive communications and passive-aggressive behaviors. Essentially, folks retreat from others and society, holed up in themselves; and/or they get revenge sneakily — without their even being aware they are doing it; and/or they react to all kinds of things said to them, even communications that are quite matter-of-fact or innocuous and perhaps not even pertaining to, let alone directed at them, with responses that are variations of “Well, that doesn’t apply to me! I’ll tell you a thing or two. How dare you say that! Let me explain how you’re wrong. And I’m smart! (You’re not.)” And the like. Check out the tweets of Donald Trump, and you’ll have clarity and even better examples of this.

In any case, such things in people are examples of the kinds of hidden hostility and aggression, and defensiveness, that are buried within “good” people and covered up assiduously by all kinds of cultural means. While you think this is far-fetched, perhaps, think honestly about and explain to me how our kind, at the hands of all our “good” people, have been able to participate in lynch mobs; the rounding up of Jews for genocide at the time of Nazi Germany; the piling up of Jews like firewood to be burned during medieval times with its pogroms; or during The Burning Times, the torture and immolating at the stake of women who had some “free” thoughts — in other words, not controlled and then lied about thoughts, as the “good” people setting fire to them have and do. This unacknowledged and hidden hostility explains all the horrific, yet otherwise unexplainable, actions of “normal” humans including bigotry and racism, child battering and sexual abuse, anti-immigration sentiments, genocides, police brutality and murder of people of color, wife-beating, and …  (insert your “favorite” human abomination here).

So now, are these “holy” and wholesome people, these “good citizens” and “patriots” and “salt of the earth” — who are properly fearful and sycophantic, on the inside as well as the outside — really “good” and “wholly”?

For the more they tell themselves they think and feel one thing while actually thinking and feeling something else the more split down the middle they become. Till after a while, they have no clue who they are. They are liars to themselves and to all the world.

Self-Defeating Beliefs and Defenses

They cannot even become good people over time. Their disease, at all costs, fights against its cure. Indeed, it is like cancer, in that way. For to become a good person, one would have to know where one is being or has been a bad person and then change that. Such a person, however, is ever fighting to convince themselves they are full of “flowers,” so how can they possibly do anything about the “sewage” that is actually in them?

Of such “good” people, the religious of them say that such thoughts about where they are being “bad” in their seemingly “good” actions and thoughts are instances of “doubt” and “lack of faith.” So, rather than inform and do service towards becoming a greater “good,” these inconvenient thoughts are done battle with as being demons, devils, and even the product of a Satan. So, no, in battling ceaselessly against the “bad” within themselves, they cannot actually become good. For they truly do not understand the nature of their bad enough to change it. Battling it, they keep it ever at a distance, giving it a status of devil, demon, Satan, and never acknowledging that these are simply — mostly innocuous and often innocent — parts of oneself that have been made “bad” by culture, then later, oneself.

Purification Rituals

What has been said about the effort to control thoughts — “positive thinking” — can be applied analogously to the many ritualistic behaviors “good” people engage in — secular as well as religious. A part of them knows they have sewage within themselves, so they are led to ever “purify” themselves … and the world by extension.

Yes, they will participate in repetitive confessionals; sacrifices of themselves and others; ritual purifications; self-flagellation; self-destructive behaviors to unconsciously punish themselves; obsessive-compulsive grooming and bathing, maybe even hand-washing; obsessive neatness of person and surroundings; perfectness of dress, outfit, adornment, and perfume; obsessive cleaning of their homes and cars; the persnickety grooming of their lawns, intensive control of all the things and of the nature on their grounds, including the shaping of any foliage there; and the obsessive organizing and cataloging of their items and the recording of their actions and intentions, i.e., obsessive planning. Nothing of their lives can be out of their control lest they be reminded of their “inner sewage” or it be revealed to others. They will be mortified if a spot, a stain, or dirt appears on their clothing, unconsciously feeling they have been “found out.”

“Cleaning Up the Streets”

But yes, they will also see the world through this veil of “sewage” and so direct their efforts in ways to remove the “impurities” of others. Indeed, think again about those atrocities of humans, mentioned above, and you will see that almost always the people perpetrating the acts have rationalized to themselves their actions by claiming they are “cleaning up” or helping to “purify,” or “save,” the world.

If you think this only happened in previous times — Nazi Germany, The Burning Times in the Middle Ages, the times of slavery in America and elsewhere — consider how all of the “good” humans throughout the world today support the efforts to “clean up the streets,” to “keep out the riff raff,” and to “keep out the unwashed” without ever, in any instance, considering the people affected and how their efforts might be burdening and in some cases ending the lives of those poor souls — those ones simply more unlucky than oneself. These efforts are not far removed in quality — if not in quantity — from those of former times to maintain “purity” in the ranks, to suppress “heresy,” to “crack down” on some group or other of society, or to “eliminate” the “undesirables”; and even in current times, the term ethnic cleansing expresses it and demonstrates its ongoingness. Need I mention Donald Trump, his bigoted proposals, and the surprisingly large number of Americans subscribing to them? Probably not. Yet keep in mind from many quarters these sorts of citizens are deemed the “good people” of contemporary society.

Denial Activities — How “Good” People Keep Realization from Happening

Yet these good citizens — as deemed by our cultures — also spend a great amount of time involved with activities of denial: They might spend hours sitting quietly at meaningless church ceremonies … telling themselves it is really “flowers” they are seeing — you catching my drift? Or they might work themselves to death in a job.

They might fill up their time with chores around the house which are for the most part unnecessary and insignificant. Or they might immerse themselves in empty but culturally approved and applaudable activities such as repeating to themselves and others truly insignificant sports statistics; keeping up with the details of current fashion or the latest minutiae of celebrity lore; filling their minds and communications with the intricacies of auto mechanics, vehicle specifics and terminology; or showing they know what is new in financial and corporate trivia. These are all ways they can prove to themselves that they are okay and “regular” people — not the way they thought of themselves in infancy — and that others like and approve of them, not the way they felt others thought about them in infancy.

Whether they are trying to assure themselves they are “a regular guy,” “salt of the earth,” a loving and self-sacrificing mom, a “hard worker,” a patriot, good citizen, or “god-fearing” person, it is all the same: They are trying to beat back that nagging feeling that they are full of “sewage” and trying to keep others from knowing that about them. These cultural activities are the way we lie, essentially.

Pathos and “Civility”

“Good” people are to be pitied for the degree of fear and sycophancy within them; that is true. It is sad how much life they have wasted striving to abide by the unjust dictates of a culture geared to higher ups, only. Yet they are hardly to be thought of as examples of integrity, wholesomeness, wholeness, or saintliness. They only appear that way for being so afraid to be otherwise and for imposing an amount of control upon themselves equal to that fear.

Certainly, whatever wrong they do is not “obvious” wrong, most of the time. They distinguish themselves from out-and-out “bad” people, like criminals. Though, the line between the two is most often blurred and many actions are in fact criminal. They get away with them, however, occurring as they do within the context of an appearance of outward “civility,” which they take great pains to maintain. So compared to criminals, are they “good”? Or are they just better, slicker, in hiding or covering up their “bad”?

Indeed, these good and holy adults are actually pathetic — trying to be “good little boys and girls” in obedience to invisible others. They are narcissistic, being unable, like Abraham, to see the others around them and their needs, and only seeing their own “needs” … their sycophantic, fearful ones. They are liars and hypocrites; and they are anything but wholly or having integrity, they are split and deceptive.

“Good, God-fearing, Law-Abiding, Hard-Working”

Thus, within the definitions of culture, such folks are considered good people. That “good” is often followed by “law-abiding, God-fearing, hard-working” (people). However, along the measure of real Truth, this is only true in relation to other, more obvious, “bad” people. Hence, being a good person often just means being the best possible sycophant. We would be “good little boys and girls” and behave and do whatever we are told (whether it is actually good or bad), as adults, rather than be noble and authentic, and have integrity; real, empathetic love; true giving (without thought of reward); and be truly good adults.

Such “good” people of culture and society have been the good Nazis, in the past. They are the good soldiers mowing down villagers. Which is another great example of how “culture” operates to skew reality so as to cause you to do things you would not do if you were seeing reality directly, not through it. As well, they are the good citizens of society, imposing the most severe penalties upon all who stray over any lines, no matter how inconsequential, simply because people with wealth, and thus power, have drawn those lines. These are our, so-called, “good” people in our societies.

So culture proclaims, and it lies.

What Is Culture?

What is culture, then? Culture is the external manifestation of multitudes of egos; it is the accumulation of their actions. Culture substitutes for the “instinct” — the natural in us we have lost. In inserting itself into all aspects of our lives it pushes away the possibility we will ever feel that instinct arising in us, or find our body and mind becoming whole, natural, healed. Culture provides the opiate for the dis-ease of humanness, as well as it covers up the dis-ease and precludes any cure.

An Amalgamation

Culture is also the amalgamation of all that one has been told is real and true over against what one can see, discern, or would be obvious otherwise. Here’s a good way to see it. You know that in reading this book it has come up against practically everything you believed to be true. Yet if you are honest, you know this makes much more sense, and it probably even corresponds to what you sensed to be true, but could not let yourself believe, let alone assert to others … could not “say out loud.”

It’s simple, culture is that whole, that composite of all that has been put inside you for you to use in your understanding of all outside you, which is in complete contrast to what you are learning in this book or would see on your own without those inserted prejudices. That’s a good way to see it, right at hand. And that is why you have felt so uncomfortable hearing so much of this.

A Matrix

Essentially culture, like I said earlier, is the matrix. For it is all the ways we have been taught to see and interpret things, over against what we would on our own. And remember why and how there is such a disparity. Not only have we been separated from authentic apprehension of reality, but we have been encouraged and reinforced in that by outside interests with intentions to have us see and interpret things along ends to suit themselves … i.e., the wealthy, the elite.

Here is an example of that. Culture tells us the wealthy are wealth creators. If we saw clearly we would see that they are wealth takers, actually. It would be obvious to us, sans “culture,” that it is the small operator who is more motivated to maximize her or his investment and thus create jobs, and “wealth,” not someone who has so much that each dollar created is not seen as another addition in one’s efforts to be wealthy but simply one, along with so many others, which can sit there, for all one cares, and does not need to be reinvested. Culture, also, is what tells Trump supporters that a billionaire like him can be on the side of the “little guy,” and take on “the establishment,” and right the injustices set up by a society favoring the rich. Astonishing, eh? This power of culture?

It is that planetmates do not have culture, by the way, that is another reason they do not need language so much. For what is conveyed through language is filtered through the intentions and agendas of others, the composite of which is slanted, then, away from seeing reality as it is. With no culture, planetmates do not need language as much for they are not seeing reality so unclearly that they would need the communication of language to interpret it.

Furthermore why would any planetmate want the confusion of others’ interpretations about what one is able to see clearly? When that is offered to us humans, we say it is “bullshit,” you see. Yet if we do not see it as nonsense, it still contributes only to our endless confusion about reality and who we are. Theologies relentlessly have engaged in the actions that have caused folks such confusion about their feelings and perceptions, being as how they concoct interpretations that are only consonant within realities that are imaginary, often having psychotic roots. Similarly, endless reams of philosophy have emanated from this pattern of folks — and religions, and culture — telling other folks that what they are seeing and experiencing is other than what it obviously is.

Outside the Matrix –> The Unapproved and Hidden

By contrast to culture is The Unapproved and Hidden, which is the truth of reality outside the matrix. It is the way reality is seen with culture — all that accumulated product of slanted intentions and skewed agendas of others — removed. It is what is left when looking at all those same realities without such agendas or motives of others. Or oneself, for that matter — this is where the pre- and perinatal and infancy pain contributes its part, by the way, in skewing our interpretations and distorting our realities. Planetmates, remember, do not have that, either, further adding to their clarity about the reality they perceive.

So, yes, again, this book is an opening on The Unapproved and Hidden. I understand you do not know how lacking in agenda I am, how I get nothing for doing this, how I am not influenced by anyone higher up, or any of that; though I am unusual in being in a position in which that is all true. You do not know how my deepest rooted yet most accessible motivations are caring and love for others, concern and heartache over the unnecessary and self-imposed suffering I see; and with all that an irrepressible desire to step in, where no one else is doing it and so it is direly needed, and to do and say what only I, of all who I know, can say and do … and only that. You do not know that my only reward, now or expected, is the feeling of knowing I have helped, done the part that only I could do, and the hope it helps relieve someone’s suffering or misery now, in the future, or after I am dead. And that’s all.

You do not know all that about me, but at least notice this: That in contrast to this, to all I am writing, you can discern in what you have been by culture indoctrinated to believe quite a bit of agenda, self-serving beliefs, and “convenient” truths. If you want you can easily see that quality in all those commonly held assumptions — the superiority of man over other planetmates being the deepest but only one of them — that my writing in this book addresses and comes up against, conflicts with. If you cannot discern my lack of guile, at least notice the agendas of those who concocted and orchestrated your beliefs and your actions that came of them. Take at least that, for certain, from your own apprehensions and interpretations of your direct experience here.

Strutting and Fretting

In sum, the Divine is Ultimate Truth. Whereas, culture is the societal embodiment of the separation from the Divine. Hence, culture contains some pretty a-mazing untruths and empty rituals. They are amazing because they are fantastical — colorful psychotic fabrications, if you will. They are a-mazing also because they are manifestations of our confused and twisted consciousness and bring us ever back to the maze — in an endless trudge through labyrinthine passages of a journey that is ultimately futile, guaranteed for failure — which is our life.

Culture Is a Weed Without Roots, the Fury We Create to Block Out Our Emptiness

You see, our gradual changes from natural life involved two things, basically: A growing ability to survive biologically, physically at whatever cost to our happiness, along with a separation from our natural inclinations and felt Divine guidance. And our ever-widening separation from the Divine meant a constant hole in the felt meaning of our existence.

Lacking roots in Nature or the Divine, we were like a weed without roots, growing madly above ground, reaching out vainly in all directions for sustenance because of the lack of direct connection to our deeper truth. This expanding outward desperately in all directions creates our culture — which is the artificial substitute and the dim empty reflection of existence.

Culture — our “matrix” — is the “much ado about nothing” and the “strutting and fretting upon the stages of life” and “sound and fury signifying nothing” of which Shakespeare wrote. Culture is a magnification of our overcomplexity of the obvious simplicity of existence, and it is the overblown array of our defenses to keep at bay our realization, our “enlightenment.” Culture brings meaning to our lives, but it is a false one. It provides us motives, and it supports and sustains our efforts; but they are vain and empty goals and futile and meaningless rituals, only.

So, after the fall into sedentary-agrarian ways which multiplied the branches of culture a-mazingly, providing the opiate for our feelings of loss and the substitute for more natural ways, more of our newborns would live. As I have said, they would be given economic value — as a commodity — within that trance life or matrix we have erected. Our children would be allowed to live, but what was distributed among them was this watered-down offering, of a life drained of meaning and “juice” but mostly lacking the “colors” or “flavors” of experience we enjoyed as humans in Nature and containing instead the apprehension of the outlines of living not the immersion in its profound and lush plenitude.

This tendency for our lives to be bleached of real appreciation yet multiplied maniacally grew steadily over time coinciding with the aforementioned rise in the predominance of the traits of controlling, conforming, sycophantic and desperate striving to please and to be appealing, and nonexpression of needs become repression of personality and cobbling of ability to participate in existence’s Divine creative stream. We built increasingly a false matrix in which to dwell, substituting it for the richness of experience of our Edenal existences.

Ignorance of the Divine Makes for Some Pretty A-Mazing Untruths and Empty Rituals

All in all, driven by this inner abyss of unknowing, our outer behavior expanded in spurious and fanciful activity and productions of all kind. With time, our vapid nature would spin out unnecessary personality traits, hollow and unsatisfiable needs, fetid desires, furious but vain behaviors, insubstantial wants, blind obsessions, uncontrollable compulsions, fantastical beliefs, painfully burning visions, and tortured thoughts … of all kinds and all of it magnified, then multiplied, then repressed and fought, then struggled with … and all this in grandiose dramas that are further multiplied, exaggerated, over-dramatized, and so on round again.

Such an overcomplication of life’s simple existence and beingness we create to keep from knowing the horror of us. Such a fury we unleash, so as to create the smoke and mirrors of distraction and to keep us from the otherwise insidious trickling knowing of our horrifying creations and the gnawing abyss of dissatisfaction and unknowing inside us.

In all of these, we journeyed ever further from our roots in Nature and the Divine and made Edenal existence the most distant memory and the most certain component of everyone’s Unapproved and Hidden.

Inevitably, all these ways came back to oneself. As we faded from natural and felt existence and — driven by pain, fear, and the resulting controlling mania  —  succumbed to ever more entrancing substitutes, we ourselves faded from existence, in a sense. This increasingly ghostly existence amounted to soul murder, then. It is to it, we now turn.

Planetmates Release The Seventeenth Prasad

Big Accumulators deprived others of resources to make them able to be manipulated towards the Accumulators’ ends.

Lion Leads at The 17th PrasadControlling and conforming traits won out, in the struggle for survival, over natural, authentic traits. For Big Accumulators and their conforming allies could combine their power to harness even more excessive resources. Driven by unreal fears of uncertainty and death from deprivation, they went even further to garner power and resources through gobbling up all they could and leaving others in states of severe neglect. Then surrounded by people in severe deprivation, they could call any tune they wished, for those in deprivation would be more amenable to themselves becoming conforming underlings and serving the Big Accumulators ends, thus further increasing their power and excessive accumulation.

Lion is First Consciousness at The 17th Prasad.

"Big Accumulators...saw no end to their desire to drive others into states of deprivation that would make them more amenable to control and to...serving the ends...of their high accumulating overlords."

The Seventeenth Prasad —  Nascent Culture War, 20,000 B.C.

Making matters worse, both conforming behavior and controlling behavior had survival advantages over more natural and authentic behaviors. Not only did Big Accumulators and their conforming underlings have the benefit of access to more of the resources of physical survival, but Big Accumulators, out of that same uncertainty and fear rooted in early birth trauma, would be pushed to deprive others in their sphere of influence of these survival resources.

Big Accumulators could do this because they derived excessive strength and power combining their own power with the power of their conforming underlings.

Big Accumulators would do this because their crazed brains saw no end to their fear of deprivation, got no relief from their blown up fear of uncertainty, hardship, pain, and struggle, and so saw no end to their desire to drive others into states of deprivation that would make them more amenable to control and to also becoming conforming underlings, doing their bidding and serving the ends, not of themselves, but of their high accumulating overlords.

Video Commentary by SillyMickel Adzema

This video is a reading of The Seventeenth Prasad, as received from The Planetmates—what I’m calling “Nascent Culture War, 20,000 B.C.”—with additional explanation, context, and some commentary by SillyMickel Adzema.


The issues highlighted in the commentary concern the way the sedentary lifeway and the possibility of storing and owning more
than one needed led not only to a division among humans into Big Accumulators and Small Accumulators, but also into Controllers, Conformers, and Non-Conformers. The natural alliance between Controllers, i.e., the Big Accumulators, and their conforming sycophantic underlings gave them survival advantages over natural, authentic Non-Conformers. How human’s birth pain and its increased anxiety led to the Controller-Conformer alliance to seek to swallow up or eliminate all Non-Conformers is explained, along with the consequences this has had ever since for societies and the divisions between them and within them.

Paraphrase/ Elaboration of  The Seventeenth Prasad: Nascent Culture War, 20,000 B.C.” — by SillyMickel Adzema

What followed is that there was pressure on Small Accumulators in a number of ways. Remember, Small Accumulators were what you originally were and describes the state in which your kind were happy. So, Small Accumulators were embodiments of the “old ways” … the natural ways. They were “more conservative” in seeking to choose richness of life experience over possession of things. But their numbers became fewer and the old ways increasingly sank into oblivion for these reasons:

The major way Small Accumulators began to disappear is through their accommodation to the power of the Big Accumulators: They covered up their desire for a more authentic and richer life. Small Accumulators by choice became fewer in number as many sought to be Big Accumulators.

But, Small Accumulators we have always with us. That is true. So, outside of those choosing to be Small Accumulators, in awareness of the broader life experience it makes possible, there were and will be always those who, for reasons of fate, Divine intention, inordinate fearfulness, and/or inability to be or “bad luck” in becoming Big Accumulators would be small accumulating not out of choice. These Small Accumulators — who would if they could be Big Accumulators — would be easily swayed to conform to the wishes of the Big Accumulators.

Why is that so? Why would those wishing to themselves dominate and control end up becoming submissive and allowing themselves to be dominated? It sounds contradictory. But, quite simply, in allying with the Big Accumulators, such wannabes of accumulation could maintain the hope — most often illusory — that they could become the same. Like dog planetmates who at times have gathered around the tables of humans, hoping for scraps, such Small-Accumulators-by-fate would be attracted to Large Accumulators. Indeed, a pseudo-religious quality came to be attached to Large Accumulators, by them. It was thought Big Accumulators — in particular, the “strong man” most in control among them — had a sort of power or energy that they contained to a great degree — far more than ordinary humans — which it was possible to feel when in proximity with them. It was even thought that it could “rub off” on others. So this purported power was, essentially then, a symbolic rationalization of this idea of thinking that one could become a Big Accumulator — sooner or later, one way or the other — through proximity to and alliance with Big Accumulators.

That is why such Small Accumulators would submit to the wishes of Big Accumulators. They would become the best and most loyal allies to the ones who had more. In deferring to them … repressing their own individuality in order to do that … they would maintain their hope of satisfying their own greed at some point. This is what is meant by their becoming conformers.  They would alter their behavior in a way to be pleasing to their overlords, and they held little value in having their outer behavior match their inner experience. They would be liars to themselves and the world, narrowing the purview of their life from the richness of experience that is possible to a focus on physical survival alone. Again, early deprivation created excessive fear of being wanting in life, leading to extreme measures. And these included loss of self. These Conformers would become solid, albeit often sycophantic, allies with the Big Accumulators or Controllers.

So there were, and are still among humans, these three styles of being human: Big Accumulators or Controllers; Small Accumulators by choice, keepers of the Old Ways, who might be called Authentic Humans; and these would-be Big Accumulators, these loyal sycophants to the folks who had more, who might be called Conforming Underlings. Notice that the desires and designs of these three groups are split along a particular line. Controllers and Conformers are allied in their aims, and those aims are directly opposed to those of Authentics. So, though Big Accumulators were far smaller in numbers to Small Accumulators, their alliance with Conforming Underlings gave them power far beyond their small numbers. This Controller-Conformer alliance would, nearly everywhere, come to dominate in the struggle for resources over those Small Accumulators who sought to hang onto more natural and authentic behaviors and lives.

This is how they accomplished that: Naturally this alliance would mean their numbers would be greater. But the power that came with control of great resources allowed them also higher degrees of organization. For humans could be organized along lines not to their choosing, rather in accordance with the designs of those at the top through the power of gifts and rewards from the Big Accumulators. You would these days say that rich folks can pay others to do their bidding and work toward their ends and not the ends that people would choose if not coerced and bribed that way. So coercion through distribution of resources by the few allowed greater organization of activities along the lines beneficial to the elite.

But the Controller—Conformer alliance would be even more successful because they would go further than that. Not only could they organize the activities of large numbers of people to benefit the Controllers in the acquisition of greater amounts and storage of resources, thus increasing their power and ability to do that all the more, in vicious cycles of greed and power. Not only would this in itself allow them to rise in dominance over the more natural, individualistic Small Accumulator — the Authentics. But their raging fears of want and deprivation had no bounds; they expanded their control over other humans way beyond what was involved in simply winning out in the resource contest. Their crazed and fearful brains pushed them to seek god-like, total control.

Backing up, remember that the Big Accumulators (the Controllers) shared something with the Conformers — an excessive fear, again from that early birth trauma, of lack of resources and its ultimate consequence, death. The Authentics risked more, in pursuing the ends of the soul, so they either had less fear, for whatever reason, or their desire for a richer experience of life was greater and caused them to take on the burden of that fear. 

But the Controllers and Conformers — fearing death, deprivation, and uncertainty to an extreme degree — would feel that nothing less than the control of all resources and the conformity of all other humans to their will and ends was required. With excessive fear, or diminished appreciation of life in itself, or both, they felt that the only way to find relief from their overpowering anxiety about existence came in attempts to control everything, to control all variables of existence, especially the ones related to accumulation, and all the humans in any way involved with any of this.

So the Controllers and Conformers would not merely seek to gather and accumulate resources, they would seek also to eliminate any competition for these resources, however slight or inconsequential, however small or disorganized that competition might be, in the form of the natural, authentic, but also individualistic Small Accumulator.

They did this in a number of ways, beginning with gathering and hoarding as much of the available resources as they could.

Hoarding in this way would leave the non-conforming Small Accumulator — the Authentic — with less than enough even to survive. So the Controller-Conformers would create scarcity. They created also starvation and death for the Authentic.

Think back, now, scarcity does not exist in Nature. You can see that if you but look. Imagine any natural setting. The only way that you can view that environment as not prodigious with possibilities for sustenance, shelter, or any of the physical needs is if one has narrowed one’s understanding of what satisfies one’s needs. Looking at any environment from the perspective of seeking one or a few items in particular is the only way most environments can be seen to be at all lacking. But expanding one’s understanding of what can be used to satisfy one’s physical needs to what is usable and possible, one cannot help but see Nature as a cornucopia. In your mythologies you display your lost understanding that Nature is really that way, and that you have simply stopped seeing that.

No. What you have dreamed up instead is this idea of scarcity. But scarcity is not a true perception of Nature, it is one that has been perpetrated by humans themselves — in particular, the Controller-Conformer alliance — for their ends alone. How better to persuade authentic Small Accumulators to become Conformers or at least to bend to Controller’s wills than to make it that they have no recourse of resorting to Nature on their own — whether true or not? And, indeed, the Controller-Conformer alliance, in gathering and hoarding resources well beyond any need, they sought to create that scarcity in reality. They would elicit compliance by eliminating alternatives.

This was in many ways the same as the way humans elicited compliance from other planetmates — “domesticating” them — by corralling them and eliminating their possibilities of sustaining themselves except through the controlling humans. The obvious difference is that humans, in general, would not be corralled … well, not in any obvious way. We will leave out for now the creation of urban centers and the enforced dependence of the population on city and village economics for the satisfaction of needs. But, at least ostensibly, authentic small accumulating humans were not corralled. They, at least initially, had freedom of movement, however self-enslaving they were to their domiciles and in their sedentary lifeways. 

But a virtual domestication of humans by the Controller-Conformer alliance could be brought about by limiting resources available to any but them. By creating scarcity in the environment, in general, they could make all humans in that environment dependent on and looking to them who had stored and had gathered those resources.

But they went even further: The Controller-Conformers would employ other stratagems to persuade the non-conforming to become “domesticated” — just like the planetmates humans had corralled. Causing deprivation was the stick, but persuasion to become Conformers and to enjoy the benefits of “social conformity” was the carrot. The values of

 social conformity would be paraded about for all to see. It became ever more important to display such differences in status through ostentatious dress and possessions.

Fancy dress would say two things: For the Conformer, it would say, “I am better than you.” In this way it would reward the conformer for her or his sycophancy by providing its opposite — an ego inflation — in relation to other people. And to the Authentic or the Small Accumulator of any sort it said, “You can have this if you obey.” That is to say, conform and be rewarded. Further, that not only can you increase your possessions by conformity, but also you can increase your status and have other Small Accumulators be sycophantic to you, too.

So, ostentatious dress and elaborate displays of possession and domicile established hierarchies of importance, with each level garnering for its members the psychological satisfaction of being sucked up to from those below, while the members of each level would be led to feel inferior to, jealous of, and so persuaded to emulate and suck up to, those on the level above. 

cf5ce49551bda4acb4cc020f913d6b41

Humiliation, jealousy, dominance, submission, power, obedience were all orchestrated in these games of hierarchy. But the bottom line was that Authentics were pressured both by being starved and beaten into submission with the stick of scarcity and by being persuaded into conformity using the carrot of status, possessions, and the reward of psychological tokens in the new game of one-up-manship.

And if neither worked — the stick of scarcity or the carrot of status and conspicuous consumption — then there was harassment, scapegoating, belittlement, ostracism, and ridicule. 

If conformity could not be persuaded it would be demanded and coerced. Controller-Conformer elites would create and sustain sets of rules to suit their ends, to which at least Small Accumulators must be obedient. Creating law in this way, they created outlaws. Defining criminality, they created criminals. For laws and rules would not be to benefit the greater good of all but simply that of the Controllers. So hardly would such rules sit neatly upon the desires of the members of society themselves, in particular, the Authentics. So the establishment of societal codes was a covert way by which the Controllers could mark the Nonconforming Authentics as criminals. And this was helpful to them for, by rationalizing it as “law enforcement,” it enabled them in the use of physical force, capture, enslavement, physical punishment and torture, and even death.

So the third way Small Accumulators had their numbers come under pressure — outside of desertions to the ranks of Conformers and the persuasive forces of scarcity and reward — was through outright attack and brutality. 

In the last analysis, the Controller-Conformer alliance could eliminate any use of resources by anyone with ends of their own and not of the alliance through torture, imprisonment, and death.

So Controllers and Conformers would have extreme advantages over Non-Conformers and they would dominate in the circles of increasing densities of societies. They would reduce the numbers of any opposing them, that is to say, any with traits or qualities that were not controlling or sycophantic, by persuading them, by killing them, or through the fact that Authentics would move away. Authentics would succumb to the wishes of the Controllers or they would be enslaved and killed, thus dying out, or they would run away to live in groups farther and farther away from the reach of the Controller-Conformer populations.

All in all, over time and in these ways, the old ways that were harmonious with Nature gave way to new ways of dominance, power, sycophancy, repression of personhood and emotion, and enslavement … with much smaller groups of Authentics living either silently or away from the population centers.

Big Accumulators were able to control Small Accumulators because of their ability to gift or reward those who assisted them.

clip_image003Sedentary ways led to the ability to gather and accumulate more, since owning more did not require carrying more. Storage of owned things created more greed and desire for more control, which extended now to even those of your own species. Big Accumulators had more “say” and sway over Small Accumulators; and they were able to control the actions of clip_image006Small Accumulators by using their excess accumulation to gift or reward those whose actions fit with their ends.

Those of you who gathered more or accumulated more, by whatever means, could have more “say” and would have more sway over those who gathered less. Big Accumulators were able to control the actions and behavior of Small Accumulators because of their ability to use their excess accumulation to gift or reward those whose actions fit with their ends.

Video Commentary by SillyMickel Adzema

This video is a reading of The Sixteenth Prasad, as received from The Planetmates—what I’m calling “Accumulating Things, Dominating Others”—with additional explanation, context, and some commentary by SillyMickel Adzema.

The issues highlighted in the commentary concern the ways that our change of lifeways from nomadic to sedentary led to the ability to accumulate more possessions than one would ever need and how this excessive accumulation led naturally to another cancerous branch on the tree of obsessive, fearful control — the branch of controlling, now, even other humans. This control of other humans derived from the ability of those who were Big Accumulators to reward and gift — using their excessive store of things — Smaller Accumulators in exchange for their cooperation. Thus this enabled people to buy off other people for the first time in humans history, but it also led to an increasing diminishment of consciousness of the human species over that which humans had previously. This diminishment of consciousness was tragic and has had dire repercussions extending right up to today, as is being made ever clearer by The Planetmates.

Paraphrase/Elaboration of The Sixteenth Prasad, The Rich Begin Calling the Tune, 25,000 B.C. — by SillyMickel Adzema

Your adoption of a non-nomadic lifestyle had other pernicious consequences. When you became sedentary — staying in one place and growing your food, eventually corralling other planetmates, and so on — you were able, for the first time in your long evolutionary history, to accumulate. This was intertwined with a whole new kind of addictive feeling for you, a concomitant of your controlling mania: a sense of ownership. For the first time, you were really and truly able to possess … to own.

hoardnewspaper

Keep in mind that you in Nature had no need, let alone desire, to own anything. Your environment — forest and seashore, field and streamside, were to you like vast kindly libraries, repositories of all one’s needs. One could attain, with little effort, all one needed. And as easily as it was attained, it was discarded. All things obtained were got from the All and returned to the All; they felt not owned, but more like borrowed.

And there was an unlimited supply of everything … not in every moment, of course, but given time, or potentially. It would sooner or later be provided by Nature, and all that was required was that one get it, that one accept the gift. It did not have to be “worked” for, planned for, traded for, or saved up for. All needs were felt to be satisfied in the normal “play” of life.

Further, there was no end of any other resource, other than food. Tools were fashioned, used, then discarded. They could always be made again. Indeed, why go through the work of carrying them from camp to camp if new ones could be easily made with much less effort than all the carrying would involve. The same was true of shelters. Easily wrought from the surrounding offerings of Nature, they were easily left behind when time to move on.

This feeling of ease of attainment of anything desired affected your relationship to all aspects of your life … to all aspects of your environment … and to each other. We have described in detail how your fear-and-controlling mania led you to seek control of flora and fauna planetmates. Keep in mind that controlling was best attained by ownership. In order to control something, one had best have power over it. And this curious idea of ownership and possession were the elements involved in having supreme power over something — giving you the ability, which later became a “right,” to use and abuse at your whim.

clip_image013Essentially, in your behaviors of ownership, power over, possession, you took an element of life that all planetmates engage in to only a small extent and blew it up and stretched it out, umbrella-like, to cover all aspects of your experience of life.

Let us back up a little to explain that. First, all planetmates have a semblance of ownership: Flora “possess” the nutrients and water they take in from the soil … they “own” them. Fauna planetmates “own” the vegetation they eat, at the very moment of consuming it. The prey that the carnivore planetmates eat are “owned” at the minute they are caught. But keep in mind that once caught, these items spend little time in such a state of possession before they are consumed and that what remains is discarded. Similarly, what one has taken in is returned to Nature in an altered form, after bodies have removed the part to be used for fuel. So, this engagement with the environment is more like borrowing than actually possessing or owning. The biological rhythm, the pulse of life, is all about this taking in and then giving out. There is a balance between the individual and the Other (the outside). One is not depleted at the expense of the other. One is not dominant over or more important that the other. Receiving, giving … birth, death … consuming, defecating … breathing in, breathing out … they are all aspects of the eternal cycle of things that encompasses all Reality.

hoardThis lack of ownership of anything and mere borrowing within the rhythms of greater wholes is true of all planetmates, with a few rare exceptions. And in no instance does any planetmate seek the possession or ownership of anything for long. Even property. For while many planetmates will seek to have control of a specific territory and will even mark it and defend it, that is no different from you in your early foraging lives having domains of influence for each different group of you. But these domains are not possessed or owned, no permanent attachment to them is achieved or, even, wanted. For to possess involves responsibility in maintaining and defending the thing possessed. None of your foraging forebears wanted to enslave themselves to any possessions of land, for it could only happen at the cost of forgoing the enjoyment and experience of ever more new and varied lands, “down the road,” so to speak.

Correspondingly, while there is occasional conflict among planetmates over territories, as there was for your foraging bands of forebears, these conflicts are and were easily resolved and easily walked away from. For with endless supplies of everything, including land, the costs of losing life or incurring injury over defense of anything are simply not worth the prize. Further, one is not “owned by” or “identified with” any particular possessions or ownership. We and your early forebears essentially “owned everything” and yet “owned nothing.” Owning everything meant there was always more of whatever. And owning nothing meant that one’s Ego or identity or status or stature was not involved in the possession or ownership of anything in particular. Hence, in either case, one could move to avoid conflict and, having unlimited choice, simply make other choices in those instances where one’s desires bumped up against any other one’s.

This applied to territories, to food … but, keep in mind, also to others of you. It was of no use to seek to “own” or “possess” another person than it was to do the same for territory or anything else. For it would bring with it an unwanted responsibility and limitation of life experience at the cost of a more precious freedom and the normal expanded possibilities of living. It made no sense to dominate your females, for example. Everyone having self-determination meant everyone had self-responsibility and took care of themselves, primarily. Again, to own anyone or have power over anyone is a lot of extra work, taking away from the pleasurable experience of the variety of life lived unrestrainedly, and is hardly worth the effort, in a world of limitless supply.

But with sedentary living all of that changed. And you became something different from anything we had ever known.

By growing your food and possessing planetmates for your use in a fixed place with a permanent domicile, you were able to store food, but other kinds of “things” as well. This was because when you were nomadic you, naturally, had to carry everything you wanted to “own”; whereas when you “nested” you not only did not have to carry possessions but you were able to create and build storage areas to protect your accumulations. In this way you gathered and stored more than you could ever possibly need.

But it did not end there. For once stored and built up, it would attract others and so require defending in a manner much more determined than any previous defending of territories for foraging rights and the like, because these stores were not easily replaceable. They represented huge investments of time, effort, and resources; they could hardly be stumbled upon “down the road.” Besides, sedentary implies one does not have access to resources potentially all and everywhere but only in one’s immediate and “owned” vicinity. So there is no “down the road” for sedentary.

And with storage, then accumulation, then defense, there followed another development; these things led to another cancerous outgrowth in your increasing addiction to controlling your experiences as opposed to discovering the adventure that divinity would have for your development and furthering on the path back to unity with divinity.

This tragic, life-diminishing spinoff of your ability to gather and accumulate excessive “things” was a desire to control even those of your own species: Your fellow humans became the last targets of your mania for control — added to your desires to control your experiences, the timing of events, your sustenance and food sources … which involved controlling your planetmates of the Flora and Fauna Kingdoms of Consciousness … your lifestyles, that is to say, becoming sedentary, and so on.

dominiongodspositionforyou.crpdYour ego was consolidating its position as the ruler of all and the only real thing in existence. You had removed the life essence from all of Reality, its soul, saw it all as being inanimate and thus diminished, usable for any ends to satisfy the Ego. At this point, you became heady with possessing things, seeing them as defenses against feelings of deprivation … again. And fearfully focused on relief from feelings of want, your controlling mania sought the manipulation of ever more in your environment — now, even this, your fellow humans in your communities. You needed to see them as less animate to do this, so you did. You built up, more and more, this idea that you were the reason for Existence and even your human planetmates were mere props for your existence … to be used however you would wish.

clip_image015So, your unplanetmate-like desire to control expanded your unplanetmate-like greed, and, sadly, you saw that gathering more enabled you to control the actions of those of you who gathered less. It was not long before some of your kind discerned that by gathering and storing excessively — becoming Big Accumulators — they could have more say and more sway over those who were Small Accumulators.

clip_image017Small Accumulators were not necessarily less able to gather more. Keep in mind that gathering more required an obsession and preoccupation with that, thus it required an unremitting focus on what is now called greed, manipulation, and power. So the more congenial and less crazed and obsessed of your kind would not wish this, especially as it required the relinquishing of the other pursuits of life not involving accumulation — for example, the relational, emotional, spiritual, and creative pursuits.

Many — who would choose to accumulate only that which was needed to sustain life and little more, so that time would be available for more fulfilling pursuits — thought the narrowing of focus to simply possessing more a sad diminishment of experience, which it was.

AUTHENTIC-THE

But this choice to use some of one’s time in the pursuit of a fulfilling life, as opposed to just the pursuit of piles of “things,” also left them vulnerable to the Big Accumulators who could tempt and persuade the Small Accumulators to act in concert with them through promises of gifts and rewards, taken from their stores of excessive accumulation.

mansubjugatingbeatingman704art2 (2)The stage was set for Big Accumulators, who had accepted a reduced spiritual and personal richness for a richness of “things,” to overpower and silence the voices of those who refused such a diminished richness of experience and narrowing of their personality — a narrowing of personality that left out the grandeur of existence more for them than for any other “thing” of Consciousness … living or “nonliving” … on this planet.

Planetmates Release The Fifteenth Prasad

Your decisions to separate from Divine Providence and to seek to control your fates created lives of unmitigated suffering.

Credit the Planetmates. They’re kicking our ass into shape, it seems to me. My suggestion, stop trying to figure them out.Dog Lead at the 15th Prasad More will become clear. I’m thinking of the hit TV series, “Lost” and how it was mysterious and incomprehensible until the end. I realize the Prasads are a lot like that. There’s much more coming than anyone realizes, just like in “Lost.” And just like in “Lost,” I think the mind’s going to go crazy trying to figure it out or pigeon-hole it ahead of time. Of what I know of what’s coming, it is different from and unlike anything I have ever read, heard, or known before.

Dog is First Consciousness at The 15th Prasad.

"To us, you were the suffering Planetmate.... In fact, some Planetmates even chose lives as species where they could help and comfort you."

The Fifteenth Prasad – Planetmates’ Compassion, Planetmates’ Pity

Adding to your creation of new diseases for yourself was, of course, the constant ill-at-ease state that characterizes you because of your early trauma. So the result of your decisions to separate from Divine Providence and seek to control your fates was the creation of lives of near unmitigated suffering. To us, you were the suffering Planetmate.

And for a long time, despite your cruel ways to both the Flora and Fauna planetmates compassion, pityEmpires of planetmates, there was more pity and compassion toward you than any other feeling.

In fact, some Planetmates even chose lives as species where they could help and comfort you—your pets and, so called, domesticated animals, being prime examples of that—solely out of pure, simple compassion for the unfortunate lots you had created for yourselves.

Video Commentary by SillyMickel Adzema

This video is a reading of The Fifteenth Prasad, as received from The Planetmates—what I’m calling “Planetmates’ Compassion, Planetmates’ Pity”—with additional explanation, context, and some commentary by SillyMickel Adzema.

The 15th Prasad–“Planetmates’ Compassion, Planetmates’ Pity”–Commentary

The issues highlighted in the commentary concern the surprising compassion that the planetmates relate as being their primary response to our species, even as we capture, enslave, use, and kill them. They express that they feel more pity for us, seeing us as living lives of unmitigated suffering, driven by early pain and crazed, feverish brains…insane, actually, compared to them…and therefore warranting understanding and forgiveness and even support and help. This last they say many of their kind have extended to us by choosing lives as pets or “domesticated animals,” even at the cost of those lives at our hands. This surprising, almost saintly, response to our cruel ways toward them is conveyed, but with little elaboration on my part for how can a human such as I presume to understand such high altruism among those that we denigrate and dismiss with terms such as “beast” and “animal.”

Paraphrase/Elaboration of The Fifteenth Prasad — by SillyMickel Adzema

EdenLostYour tendency to come down with disease and illness was added to the burden you already carried because of your state of ongoing unhappiness carried over from your unnatural beginnings. Thus, you not only created new diseases — by which you would perhaps unconsciously seek to bring to an end your denied state of unmitigated suffering — these diseases were added to your constant uncomfortable, miserable state, poisoned with your early birth and deprivational trauma, as it was. Essentially, then, in acting out your fears in a mania of attempting to control everything around you, you created lives of fundamental suffering. Your attempt to better your fates beyond what had been set for you by Divine Providence, which at one time had you living ebullient lives within the flows of a divinely-ordained Nature, was beginning to have disastrous results in terms of your overall well-being beyond your mere physical survival.

All these things combined, you presented yourselves a sorry figure on Nature’s stage. For these so called “improvements” to your physical circumstances came at great cost. You were able to greatly expand your numbers, but your flourishing was like that of a cancer upon the Earth, for it did not bring with it increased vitality. You grew, yes, but you did not thrive. All your increases of population numbers was paid for with a diminished and watered down existence for those brought into this world.

For your lives were drudgery and work. By the sweat of your brow, you now would sustain your meager physical existence. This was in contrast to your lives in Nature, and ours, wherein our lives spent in sustaining ourselves is part of our play in Nature. We have no distinction of work and play, as you do. For most of your existence, you saw every day as adventure and fun, as well. But you descended from those lives of Pleasure into an ongoing working nightmare.

All in all, in seeking to avoid death at any and all costs to present happiness, you created lives which it was clear indicated that you actually wished for death … that you were seeking it out. You not only killed each other, you not only killed us, it was supremely evident that you wanted to die. So you extended your lives in all these unnatural ways, at the expense of actually wanting to live that existence.

So it is that you introduced tragedy to Nature. To us, you were the suffering planetmate. We watched as you elevated Nature’s game of life and death on high to where your numbers would increase wildly and uncontrollably, then be beaten back in mass outbreaks of disease, wars, or natural calamities — which your ever more concentrated population centers made far more severe than for us or would have been for you previously. You were the planetmate to introduce mass dying, and killing, to Earthly existence.

We saw you huddling together like frightened children in your homes and villages, bowing down to the products of your hands, and cowering before Nature and its ways. Your fear had you invent phantom helpers — gods, deities — that were equal, in stature, to your pain. Obviously they had their roots in your deprivational trauma; they were a manifestation of a denial of the way events had actually occurred to you in infancy, for they held out the promise that such satisfaction would someday come. But they revealed their true origins through the fact that they were often cruel and contrary in their beneficence, just as your caregivers had been experienced as being. Thus your images of God are deformed; true and real Beneficence is filtered through your fear and early pain.

You are unlike us, for we experience a perfect nurturing in our beginnings, under Divine orchestration of biological events, creating a perfect trust in Reality as benevolent, perfect, and generous. Whereas you experience a variable quality of nurturing in your early infancies — always less than perfect and sometimes harsh and cruel — which creates for you a sense of mistrust toward existence and its designs. This inner turmoil resulted — throughout your post-agrarian history — in your projecting that upon the screen of heaven and Nature as ambivalent gods, insensitive and wrathful deities, and perverse and contrary Nature. And the measure of your submission to these forces was equal to the measure of your suffering and pain. Feeling beaten down by the forces outside yourselves, from birth, had you begging, pitifully, from such forces throughout your lives. You sacrificed your nobility of soul upon the altars of unappreciative and vain, capricious and punishing gods.

pepper-spray-cop-17We saw your suffering and pitied you. This was in spite of the cruelty that you perpetrated increasingly upon both the Flora and Fauna Empires of Consciousness — your fellow planetmates. Indeed, rather than anger, your planetmates felt more feelings of pity and compassion toward your species than any other feeling.

Your unhappy lots were of your own choosing, it is true; but we understood your crazed brains could not discern easily the way we could. Indeed, though you acted for all the world as if you were in control and dominant, you appeared to us to be enslaved to drives and passions. Again taking your shortcomings and spinning them as accomplishments, you awarded yourself, out of all Nature, with “free will,” though you were about as free as addicts are in choosing their fix. You lost the sense of having the potential for unlimited variety of experiences of life, as presented through the exigencies of the Divine, which actually gives us the sense of being free. spirit-elizabeth-silkWe saw you as sick or emotionally-intellectually deficient, so we did not judge or condemn your actions.

In fact, in our compassion, many sought increased spiritual redemption through devoting their lives to aiding you, at least in the relief of your suffering; even though at the cost of many a planetmate’s life. Their desire was to alleviate your suffering and even to comfort you. Forgoing exuberant lives of Bliss and Pleasure in Nature, they joined you in your darkened existences. They submitted to your wiles and cruelties. They carried you, pulled your plows and vehicles, were companions to and helped to raise your children. They presented examples to you of nobility and service to others, which you had totally forgotten.

1511001_10201224005268529_6584139_n

peasantplowingbelowcastleSo some planetmates chose lives as species where they would be close to and able to help you — “pets” you would call them or “domesticated animals.” And this was done solely out of pure, simple compassion for the unfortunate lots you had created for yourselves.

We were the actual angels in nature you sought in the heavens. You imagined the actual ideal satisfaction of your needs, their completion, the way they should have been satisfied, and symbolized that as the existence of angels and allies in the heavens, descending to Earth for you. You never noticed that your actual angels were directly before you, in Nature. Though you had waged continuous war on us, we reacted in accordance with the Divine benevolence we knew existed for us. We were your unheralded angels in Nature. We came to you at the cost of our lives and sought to assist and comfort you.

And to that, right now, we are adding that we are seeking to remind you and guide you as well. We would be your psychotherapists, as it were, dispensing the brutal truth and tough love you need right now in order to live. For your addiction can go on no longer.

Rhino is First Consciousness at The Fourteenth Prasad.

When you controlled your diet, you dismissed Divinity's perfect banquet… perfect in the sense of its effects on your primary purposes in being alive, not just existing. It is for this reason that you have myths of very early ancestors living to ages of up to one thousand years. A much longer life was indeed possible, but for reasons that will be clear later, not particularly desirable.

The Fourteenth Prasad – Defying Divine Assistance

Second, Divine Providence is perfect providence, in ways that you cannot see ahead of time. You are not only taught, but your physical needs for food, water, shelter, and so on, are more perfectly provided by Nature in the ways most beneficial to the health of both your minds and bodies.

When you controlled your diet, you dismissed Divinity’s perfect banquet…perfect in the sense of its effects on your primary purposes in being alive, not just existing. It is for this reason that you have myths of very early ancestors living to ages of up to one thousand years.

So, in determining your much less diverse and unhealthy diet, because of your insistence on your own ideas for sustenance over the sustenance perfectly provided by Nature for your nomadic, foraging forebears, you created diseases you never had before.

Video Commentary by SillyMickel Adzema

The video following is a reading of The Fourteenth Prasad, as received from The Planetmates—what I’m calling “Defying Nature’s Perfect Banquet, Creating Diseases”—with additional explanation, context, and some commentary by SillyMickel Adzema.

The issues highlighted in the commentary relate to further separation from Divine Providence through increasing resistance to naturally provided food resources and the establishment of human-created or manipulated food sources with the intent of pleasing the palate and ignorant of nutritional needs, which had previously been provided by Divine Providence through Nature’s ways of sustenance.

Also, it discusses how this led to diseases never before experienced by our species—totally the product of our ego-designed diet. It mentions how myths of humans living inordinately long Smeagollives at one time is a product of the fact that such things were possible—though not necessarily desirable for reasons to be made clear later—during the period when humans diet was still divinely provided through Nature and before human ego wrested this control away and began its own ideas of sustenance, built around the twisted desires of the palate, itself made crazed in being swept up in the attempt to artificially fill emotional shortcomings stemming from humans’ half-born status and resultant crazed, over-amped brain and consciousness.

The 14th Prasad. “The Great Reveal” By The Planetmates “Defying Divinity, Creating Diseases”

Paraphrase/Elaboration of The Fourteenth Prasad — by SillyMickel Adzema

The second major way that Divine Providence serves all planetmates is in its being perfect providence. No one in form is or can be aware of the All, so imperfection is inherent in all beings playing the game of physicality. But we feel the directions from the Divine, the All, as we have been saying. So did you. And in following these Divine directions, without knowing it ahead of time, we discover they are perfect. We find that we are guided, in spite of ourselves, to our highest realizations and fulfillments.

We know this to be true in our bones, so to speak, but our lives continually affirm it back to us, as it once did you. With age and in time, we find that in following the prods and pulls of the exigencies of events — in these frequent “course corrections” provided through the patterns of what you mistakenly consider random and undesirable events — we are navigated successfully, indeed magnificently, through the shoals and channels of life.

edenharmonyadamevecomparehippiepicvandersteenebig

But in your continued separation from Divine Providence through increasing resistance to naturally provided food resources and the establishment of human-created or manipulated food sources with the intent of pleasing the palate and ignorant of nutritional needs, you not only forgo Divine Providence, you defied Divine Assistance. Rebellious as can be, you laid in your plans for providing for yourselves along the lines of greatest control and least variability of routine. And within the parameters of the hugely diminished possibilities that came of that, you sought to satisfy an increasingly crazed and distorted appetite.

By that we mean that in your crazed state of deprivational trauma, rooted in infancy, you developed cravings quite apart from what was actually good for you and was very often self-destructive. Your ego and control addictions thus bore fruit in myriad other addictions of palate and mind. Indeed, though you sought control above everything else, in doing so you became more out of control. Defying Divine Guidance, you were at the mercy of raw appetites and perverted tastes, the end products of early deprivation and pain, as well as being the ways of fleeing in the present from the tense, fearful, and impatient state that would characterize you normally. You would often choose foods that would please the palate and not necessarily nourish you.

marie_antoinette_let_them_eat_cake

We will explain this in more detail: Previously you had a perfect alignment, as we do, between what is desirable and pleasurable and what is most beneficial to your health. But with your increasing split from your own feelings and instincts, your crazed brains sought foods that satisfied imaginary, not real physical, desires. Suffering as you were, more than all others of us, you sought to find in food the comfort and satisfaction you could not get in your early life in the fulfillment of those earliest needs and desires. In particular, as a baby you needed to be fed and there was a gap between your need and your caretaker’s ability or desire to fill it, and so you determined that you would never again feel a lack and sought increasing control of your food acquisition as adults. In those earliest times, along with food, you needed comforting, soothing, care from and bonding with your caretaker as well, and with the gap between that need and your caretakers ability or desire to fill it, you would seek later as adults to use your times of dining as substitutes for those aches of not getting, which you still had with you. You not only have “comfort foods,” consider all of your elaborate rituals of dining and the sociability you design around it — “comfort dining.”

Now, why would you be so much more likely than us to have this problem? Remember that roughly half of your development, especially of your brain, in early life was happening outside of the womb and at the discretion of your fully growns, while we were experiencing that same period of development under the near perfect guidance and precise orchestration of the Divine through the workings of our species’ particular biology. We would experience no gap between need and fulfillment. You, with your unusual beginnings, are the only species that does as a matter of course have that gap and hence that feeling of frustration and craving. Hence, you would be set up to feel deprived during the first year of your life, especially, and then would feel that lack in mitigated form throughout your lives. These differences between us and you would weigh in strongly in your decisions to break with the Divine around food and your receiving satisfactions of your needs. And these compulsion-obsessions of yours would be flavored with your additional desire for comforting and soothing — of which you felt a similar lack at that time. Indeed, because of your carried-over tension and anxiety from those lacks, as adults you could use some comforting and soothing, additionally.

Further, in your former nomadic and foraging ways, you were led, like us, to satisfy your needs through a wide expanse of varieties of nutritional sources. In those times, for you, with this incredible variety of food products — the bounty of magnificent forest and field, shore and stream, you would be drawn to those that you would need or were better for you, health-wise, exceedingly more often than those that would not serve you well. Your appetites and palate coincided with your actual bodily needs, indeed with your actual spiritual needs as well. You, like us, partook of Divine Providence through Nature’s ways of sustenance.

But with your change to sedentary ways, you narrowed your range of foods drastically. In fact, most often you would seek to satisfy yourselves in reliance on as little as one to four foodstuffs, sometimes the majority of your diet would be variations on this one or this handful of ingredients. Of course, you could not hope to satisfy the multitude of bodily needs for vigor and to avoid illness from such a diminished array of sources. You became unhealthy. You lost height and the bodies you created were weaker and more likely to fail. Your mothers would more often die in childbirth and your children would quite a bit more than previously die then or in the first few years of life.

Most importantly, this abnormal control of your diet in defiance of Nature’s designs for you, led to diseases never before experienced by your species — totally the product of your ego-designed diet. Your lives were not just less adventurous, less happy, less satisfying, they were shorter. Your lifestyle might allow you to fend off big predators better, but it left you wide open to malnutrition and the little predators of germs. When you determined your much less diverse and unhealthy diet you created diseases you never had before. Your life expectancy rapidly diminished.

church_sepulcher_cutaways_thumb

Yet before you wrested control of what you would eat, and you let Nature lead you in your diet, your kind lived much longer lives. It is for this reason that you have myths of very early ancestors living to ages of up to one thousand years. In these myths your forebears are depicted as vigorous and tall, long-lived and noble. All of this, generally speaking, was true. Relative to today and prior to your falls into sedentary ways of horticulture and husbandry, you were healthier, more in tune with principled and invisible ways — more “spiritual; more harmonious with Nature’s designs, and you had longer life spans, which could easily, life circumstances allowing, exceed considerably over 100 years, though, for reasons that will be clear later, that might not be particularly desirable.

To sum up, greater health and well-being and living inordinately long lives at one time is a product of the fact that during that period humans’ diet was still divinely provided through Nature, and was occurring in the time prior to when human ego wrested this control away and began its own ideas of sustenance, built around the twisted desires of the palate, itself made crazed in being swept up in the attempt to artificially fill emotional shortcomings stemming from humans’ half-born status and resultant crazed, over-amped brain and consciousness.

All the rest of us planetmates are not only taught and guided toward our ultimate life fulfillment by Divine Providence, as we have said, but even our physical forms are most perfectly sustained in following Divine Providence. Both our existential and physical needs are most perfectly provided by following Divine Providence. Re the physical: physical needs for food, water, shelter, and so on, are more perfectly provided by Nature in ways that are most beneficial to the health of both our minds and bodies. When you separated from the Divine, even defied divine assistance, when you decided it would be you who would control your diet, you dismissed Divinity’s perfect banquet…perfect in the sense of its effects on your primary purposes in being alive, not just existing.

And with this insistence on your own ideas for sustenance over the sustenance perfectly provided by Nature for your nomadic, foraging forebears, you added the suffering of unnecessary physical illnesses and earlier loss of strength and even of physical form itself to your unhappy lot.

The Thirteenth Prasad – Breaking with Divinity

lovebirdsd_bdreamhappinesslovesleep-04285a5dbd7c39953af60c7799a0727e_h_thumbThis drastic switch from nomadic to sedentary life ways was significant for two crucial reasons, each with dire consequences for the long term of all Earth Citizens, including yourself:

The first crucial reason is that the ending of your nomadic life meant a near total break with Divine Providence—whose purposes are twofold:

First and foremost the continued perfect direction and guidance of lives towards the growth and life ways that are optimal to each Earth Citizen, as determined by the Divine, what you call God –

551993_361766577242559_425291641_n2

For by Divine Guidance all Earth Citizens in Nature are led to their ultimate fulfillment and spiritual progress through the exigencies of what you call fate but what is actually the Divine Hand of Guidance and benevolent Teaching. Hereafter, with your crazed, backwards thinking, you would determine your ends, and would resist Divine attempts to assist you.

You saw difficulties, obstacles, even struggles, deprivations, and pain, as to be avoided instead of the blessings of Divinity, who through these means directs, teaches, and guides us in lives to where we end up ever closer and more understanding of our rootedness, rather, identity with the Divine.

Video Commentary by SillyMickel Adzema

What follows is a video of a reading of The Thirteenth Prasad, with commentary, elaboration, and context, by SillyMickel Adzema.

The issues highlighted in the commentary relate to further separation from Divine Providence—a product of our desire to obsessively control—to reframe life as a pursuit of avoidance of exigencies, obstacles, and pain instead of the way seen by Planetmates wherein all these things are embraced as Divine teachings/guidance of a very personal and loving kind.

Image of The 13th Prasad. “The Great Reveal” By The Planetmates: “Resisting, Defying Divine Assistance”

Paraphrase/Elaboration of The Thirteenth Prasad — by SillyMickel Adzema

Foraging fell to hunting; hunting made murder of your own possible; these abilities to determine death along with its illusion of control of life descended to horticulture; horticulture led to “domestication” of “animals” (enslaving of planetmates); and agriculture and animal husbandry required a sedentary mode of living. All of these are falls from the Divine; they are stages of your gradual separation from Divine Providence, but more:

Keep in mind that while they represent decreasing connection with the All That Is, they demonstrate also increasing control of what reality you have left. They are a profile of the ouster of a Benevolent Reality as the “ruler” of lives and the center of Nature, and its replacement with the oafish, savage image of the human.

Life in Nature is about awareness, play, unity, belongingness, and nobility. Its love is quietly confident and blissful, not maudlin and ostentatious, covering up its absence in actuality. It contains the heights of enjoyment while embracing the uncertainty required for that. Its pain and discomfort are essential components of its larger, more encompassing Pleasure and Beauty.

We have been describing your, humans’, increasing straying from that sort of life and the institution, in its stead, of a life reframed as a pursuit of avoidance of exigencies, obstacles, and pain. Whereas planetmates do not seek out hardship … why would we defy Divine Providence in making our lots more painful or difficult? … neither do we overreact to it. For these more bracing aspects of Reality are simply the darker side, we know, of a greater “light.” That is, all experiences not immediately warranting appreciation are the doorways, we know from experience, to greater awareness and bliss, later.

They are not only promises of greater rewards to come, they are the ways we are taught and guided by the Divine. Not only are we taught and guided, but through these exigencies of fate and these variables of experiences we are reconnected with, reassured in, and remembered of that source and of its very personal and loving nature.
Indeed, whereas life is adventurous, playful, and enjoyable for us, its inconveniences, discomforts, and hardships we see as “audiences,” if you will, with our highest and most enlightened self, which we know to be no different from the self of All. You might say that when we perceive that life is not the exuberant flow it is normally and instead presents blocks, bumps, and diverting events, that we are aware that it is a time of “promotion” for us … that we are “being kicked upstairs,” so to speak. It is through the details of the difficulty that we are, as it were, called to the “head office,” that we get to commune with our best friend, the Divine, and that we are instructed for steps to come. We know that when life slams into a wall, it is time to “reframe” or “remap.” And we have no doubt that we will be shown how to do that.

You knew this for most of your existence, too. It is only now, in this five minutes before midnight in the twenty-four hour expanse of your “day” of existence that you even took to horticulture, to expanding your controlling obsession over Flora. Previous to that, though you began separating from Divinity with the birth pain and prematurity that came with bipedalism, which indeed defines you and started your “day,” you sought your assistance from your divine surround. You searched for food in your immediate surroundings — foraging and hunting, as it were — not doubting your success. You reveled in the plenty served up by that Divine. It was your Edenal existence, you lived in Bliss like us. And as soon as events and circumstances changed and became harder, discomforting, you knew it was time to move on.

You saw difficulties as signals to switch to a place of greater ease. You advanced to a place, sure enough, where the circumstances of your existence were easy and festive again. Times were good; you played; you loved. In this way, you were confirmed always that any choppiness in life’s waters were the prelude to even swifter, smoother sailing beyond them. Yes, you knew the light that follows the darkness as surely as you knew the dawn follows the night. You knew the beatific face of pain and the wisdom, guidance, instruction, and elevation as a person and spiritual being that it brought with it. You knew that every hardship was another clue on your way home, back to the full embrace of the Divine … as do we. It could not be more clear to you that difficulties were a preparation, an initiation from the All That Is, setting the stage for your grand Re-Union, and one by one taking you through the doorways that separated you from it … as it is for us.

Your veering off from that knowing in the last few minutes of your “day” of existence is startling. You are like a species that lived one day and in the last five minutes of it contracted a deadly disease. We see this and deem that it might signal your end, your death. But we, as kindly physicians, are here to nurture you through it on the assumption that you are meant to live and be even the better for it. For why would this time of darkness be any different from all those others we experience … all of them opening to a greater light?

You might say that life is Bliss, and that our spiritual path to greater awareness of that Bliss is through pain. We are mightily surprised that so many of you would think the opposite of that, seeing greater spirituality and awareness to be products of being extremely good in not being aware of the seeming negatives of existence and being excellent at keeping all intense feelings and experiences away from you. In this way, you take the worst and most cowardly quality of you, the source of all your grief, and you elevate it to a spiritual principle!

To the contrary, we know that darkness precedes every light. That the journey to greater light or Bliss and Awareness follows a trail where shade and sunlight alternate, where steps to anything further along require “backward” steps to better make the leap ahead, and where going “up” and going “down” are simply aspects of the same expanding “outward.”

We know that your early experience with darkness and pain at birth has caused you to be continually forgetful of the beatific other side of distress, and so to project a greater darkness ahead of you, conducive to dread. Because your beginnings are traumatic and were overwhelming and seemed unending, you are ever fearful that any moment that can reoccur. You lack the nonchalance and simple, undoubting confidence and security we have in the unfolding of events and of the rightness, even kindness of their manner of doing that.

But in all these ways, culminating in this sedentary life, you sought to expend greater effort toward fighting off an imagined darkness, which is impossible to exist the way you think it might, rather than to face the experience in front of you in the present, whether enjoyable or unpleasant. Your sedentary life was the equivalent of building a fortress to keep out those imagined threats. It was not you building up a better life but your retreating into a cave, of sorts, in fleeing from it. It is where, inside, your hurt, angry, defiant self was determined to “make a stand” to fend off the Divine. As we said earlier, your Ego caused you to mis-perceive everything, including your mistaking aid/assistance for attack. The Divine’s attempts to come to your aid and to take you beyond where you are into something always better were seen by you as attacks from Reality Itself. You imagined a devil in the divine countenance, quite the contrast to our perceiving on the opposite side of every face of fiendishness a beatific one.

So essentially, your change from nomadic to sedentary lifeways had two significant effects on your species, each of which have been instrumental in creating the apocalypse emergency facing you and all other Planetmates today. The first effect was that of severing your connection with the Divine, what you call God, to the point of near total separation. As your Michelangelo painted it, you and the Divine touch the end of a fingertip.

This is about right, and quite the fall from grace from what had been and the way it is for ALL other Earth Citizens. Divine Providence serves all Planetmates in two major mays. The first of these is the continued — continued from the womb and birth — the continued perfect direction and guidance of our lives toward the growth and life ways that are the best, as determined by God or the All That Is, for our ultimate fulfillment and spiritual progress. The Divine Hand guides and teaches us along perfect pathways through the exigencies of what you call “fate.” We see difficulties, obstacles, struggles, deprivations, and pain as the teaching tools of the Benevolent Teacher, guiding us toward lives where we end up ever closer and more understanding of our rootedness and, eventually, even identity with God.

Whereas, because of your crazed, backwards thinking and your insistence on trying to control your own destinies — however much more difficult that would be since you resisted and even defied Divine Assistance — you did all in your power to avoid the Divine lessons brought to you through the adventures and exigencies of life — what you call hardships and suffering.
So, your radical separation from the Divine caused you to mistake always the Divine lessons and blessings for evil, for wrongness. In this way you guaranteed your failure in the game of life; as a species your cumulative failures you piled one upon another as if they were progressive achievements, not the increasing web of disaster that is reaching its culmination today.

Planetmates Release The Twelfth Prasad

Cow Leads at The Twelfth PrasadPlanetmates plucked from Nature’s perfect blueprint, set to your ends, driven by your brains crazed from early trauma. Cow is First Consciousness at The Twelfth Prasad.

"[Y]our control of both Flora and Fauna in this way required the most drastic change in your way of life—one that would be the sole root of the apocalypse that we see looming before us all."

The Twelfth Prasad – Husbandry and Sedentary Ways

Incidentally, it was not long after this “conquering” of the Flora Empire that you began to extend your control over some Planetmates in exactly the same way. You captured, enslaved, and set their life cycles to fit yours. The who, what, when, where, and how of their lives were plucked from Nature’s perfect blueprint and set to your ends—the ends driven by your fear, obsession to control, and crazed, backwards, and overstimulated brains, borne of early trauma. No longer content merely to hunt Planetmates who were living their divinely ordained lives in the perfection of Nature, you corralled and kept them for any number of ends that you would choose, including, usually, their being killed and eaten, without having to hunt them first. However, your control of both Flora and Fauna in this way required the most drastic change in your way of life—one that would be the sole root of the apocalypse that we see looming before us all. For horticulture, and to some extent “herding” of planetmates, required the end of your nomadic lifestyles and the establishment of sedentary ones.

Paraphrase/ Summary/ Abstract of “The Twelfth Prasad” — by SillyMickel Adzema

The next step in your increasing drive to control, the next phase of your becoming an abomination in Nature, was, indeed an assault on the dignity of all planetmates. Having taken over the determination of the lifecycles of those of the Flora Empire, it did not take long before you imagined doing the same to beings who were more akin to you. It was no longer enough to hunt planetmates and kill them for food, you had the “bright” idea of owning and growing us, much as you had done with the Earth-bound planetmates, the Flora. Your “conquering” of earth-rooted beings jazzed you up to set off to “conquer” all other beings in view. You began “conquering” your fellow planetmates of the Fauna Kingdom. So, pumped up on the desperate addiction to control and swooning with power, you captured, enslaved, and set the lifecycles of more of us independent Earth Citizens to ends that would suit only yourselves. You had less consideration for us as being independent, free beings than even when you killed us, as previously, in hunting. In your hunting, you had at least a measure of regret in taking our lives, and you felt a certain kinship with us as your prey. You at that point, though differing from how you had been earlier, were still not outside of the ways possible in Nature, for you were doing something no different from what some other planetmates do to each other. For in our contests of predator-prey, planetmates can live separate and free lives, until a showdown that would have one continue on but for another would be a final contest that would have them start over in a new game in some other space and time. And in your hunting, you were acting fully within the rules of these contests as set up by Nature. And until that final contest, both you and we would live separate and respectful lives, noble and free, each of us. We could still consider each other to be kin and children of the same mother, Nature.

249754_3851071792340_601260746_n

Now, however, it was not only our deaths that you determined, you succumbed to the notion that we would feed your addiction to possessing and controlling the factors that influence your life by determining the manner of our entire life as well. That is to say, being unsure of your success in the contests of Nature you decided to cheat, just like you did with Flora. Rather than search us out and engage us, you took from us our freedom. You put us in place and grew us as you would vegetables. And again, it was much more work for you. Just as farming was an oppression to you compared to foraging, so also husbandry and “domestication” of us contributed to lives of labor and sweat, focused solely on your physical needs and forgetting your spirit and soul.

artistcliffjoseph2x1

We sister-and-brother planetmates of yours, your warm-blooded kin as well now, were plucked from lives of adventure and awe and were instead “possessed” in the same manner that you had begun “possessing” the land and the earth-rooted beings you placed upon it. It was the most hurtful affront to our nobility, and the hugest scar on your character … your greatest shame. You kidnapped us. You separated us from Nature’s perfect blueprint. Once captured, we were placed into your service in all ways possible. You determined how, when, and with whom we would mate. Indeed, you decided the who, what, where, when, and how of virtually every aspect of our lives, down to the most trivial. Having lost your connection to Divine Providence and your sense of the God of All — It no longer being visible to you — you set yourselves up on the throne in Nature belonging to It. You deemed yourselves gods and rulers over Nature and all life. But you were ugly deities. Relative to the Divine Perfection that is our birthright and the way of Nature — the source of the apprehension of Reality as Beauty and Life as Bliss — you were clownish and pompous, having no idea of the monstrous, devilish, and hideous persona you were actually presenting. You determined when we would be born. You decided where we would live and the manner of that life. You decided what we would eat throughout our lives. You took the product of our teats from us, which was meant for our offspring. You nurtured or killed our offspring as you wished. You fashioned garments from our fur; you took coats from some of us, shaving it off even as we were alive, and used it for yourself instead. The planetmates you now enslaved were ripped from the perfect design of Nature; they were beaten into alien molds. These schizophrenic designs were the products of preoccupied human minds — themselves the product of early trauma — that were fearful, obsessive about controlling, crazed, backwards thinking, and overstimulated.

480063_250568871718458_887333838_n

You forced some of us to live lives of back-breaking strenuous labor, even making us pull the items you had fashioned to better enslave our sister earth-rooted beings, that is, you enlisted us in your agricultural designs. You used us for transportation, sometimes riding upon us, sometimes requiring we pull the contraptions in which you rode. If we did not submit, we were beaten, tortured, met with deprivation, and often killed, cut up, and cooked for you to devour. We were being seen as “things” to use and adornments to your “glorious” persons. Our lives were orchestrated in manners to enhance, lift up, and facilitate your own. With you at the center and deeming yourselves, now, the only truly “alive” things in the world, our intentions became as meaningless to you as would be the intentions of the stones you would arrange for your shelter, and were just as invisible.

cowscorraled2010__Organic_Milk_and_Happy_Cows__02 (2)

 You put us in what were essentially jails. For some of us, our jails were roomy and included land upon which to roam, though you set the boundaries of them — fencing and corralling us and determining we would never escape. For others of us, you assigned lives of minimal movement, restraining us all about, in place, where you could come regularly to remove things from our bodies that you used or consumed. You forced our bodies together and moved us about, collecting us, “stacking” us, and putting us in piles like we were seashells or stones; you “herded” us. You tied us in place and managed our maneuvering as you wished.

Pharming-Cows-Proteins

You would have us serve up to you our offspring regularly to be put on your dinner tables. These beings of ours were rarely allowed to hatch and become actual fully grown descendants of ours, yet you would prod and poke us to produce more. Death was your punishment for non-compliance. And if these were allowed to live, it would only be until you would take their lives at a later time, at your whim, for some purpose solely your own. So, you captured us planetmates out of our perfect, divinely-ordained lives in Nature; and you kept, grew, raised, trained, ate our offspring, and often killed and ate us eventually, along with other ends of yours that you would dream up for us emanating out of your brains, which were overstimulated and at this point seeing much of the Fully Conscious Universe, Alive Universe around you, save yourselves, as dead. What you relegated to the status of having no awareness, no soul, included, now, all matter, all the Flora Kingdom, all the Fauna Kingdom, and even your own kind who were not like you enough, for example, those from other tribes/cultures, even those that were different in your own tribe/culture. As you will see, even those whose age was different and they were younger, your very own offspring, you put in this category. Infants and children were predominantly seen as things, not fully living or feeling, and as resources to be exploited or discarded at will. In this way, you gave full sway to your desires; and you were able to justify your reckless and insensitive behavior to your conscience — what was left of it. Indeed, as we have been saying about your ego, you turned your crimes into achievements. You deemed your offenses to be duties.    Now, all of this controlling required the final changeover of your lifestyle from nomadic to sedentary. You needed to be in place to grow food, for horticulture, as least for the growing/harvesting season; but you needed to be sedentary the full year round in order to raise Fauna Planetmates, for husbandry, shepherding, and “domestication” of us. Domestication it was, indeed, for you created fixed domiciles for yourself, and you fixed us in place as well, enslaving us along with you. This final phase of your controlling, of your acting out your neonatal pain and infantile deprivation, involving your changing over from nomadic to sedentary lifestyles, would be the one major root cause, in time, of the apocalypse that we see looming before us all today.

The Eleventh Prasad – “Agrarian Revolution”

Once you started hunting planetmates for food and killing your own out of fear of scarcity of resources, the next step towards ever more control of what Nature/the Divine provide naturally was facilitated. In terms of the well-being of planetmates, the planet, and the survival of humans, this was the direst development.

naturecollageMobile-Nature-WallpapersBorne of increasing lack of faith in Divine Providence, you next expressed your impatience with the divine flow by controlling the vegetarian side of your food resources by instigating horticulture. Through horticulture you extended your control—we would say interference—in Nature’s perfect ways by deciding what, when, how, and where to grow the Flora Empire of Earth Citizens. About 25,000 years ago, increasing numbers, though not all, of your kind took over the divine plan for these Earth-rooted beings. You determined their life cycles and fates and set them to your ends, rather than Nature’s ends. You call this “the agrarian revolution.”

The 11th Prasad. “The Great Reveal” By The Planetmates: “The Agrarian Revolution”

Paraphrase/Elaboration of The Eleventh Prasad — by SillyMickel Adzema

Having begun your controlling obsession by killing planetmates and eating them — hunting — you set up the next step in that expansion of fear into the daily activities of your lives. Pushed by the anxiety of an imagined scarcity of resources, you had begun inserting yourselves into the lives of the Fauna Kingdom. But your excessive fear that you might be unable to take care of your needs caused you to begin your mucking with the natural order in the Flora Kingdom, as well.

handsholdingtrees.4x

Having a taste of the unnatural power of control over others — that you experienced in removing the life from other planetmates by hunting and killing them — you began to see a way to feed that addiction — which was powerful in it being a substitute for, because it was reflective of, real life — in your interaction with the earth-rooted beings of Nature. Hunting and killing facilitated your imagining of manipulating the flora around you. Removing this decision from the purview of the Divine, where it belongs, you, yourselves, began determining the life cycles and fates of these beings, deciding when they would be “born,” when they would end their existences, where they would live, who of them would get to be superior in numbers, how they would live, and the manner of their deaths. This determination of the life and death of earth-rooted beings, you call horticulture.

ljglggkhgkgkjg

Horticulture means that you began growing your food — taking the lifecycles of earth-rooted beings and setting them to your ends alone, not Nature’s ends. You had observed some planetmates killing and eating others, and you had begun doing that — hunting. You observed that the offspring of many of the Flora Empire — their fruit and seeds and nuts — would become new beings of the same kind of them, when placed under the ground. You decided to fight back your dread of uncertainty by kidnapping those offspring — those seeds, fruits, and nuts — and putting them to use for you. You took the seeds and fruit and put them in the soil near where you lived. This God-like determination of other lives was the beginning of what you call the agrarian revolution.

sagfagagsagafdThis major incursion of control into the erstwhile harmony of Nature’s domain could not have been more significant for us all, all planetmates; it was the worst development of all. It has had repercussions regarding the well-being and survival of yourselves and all planetmates extending throughout history ever since, and has set up the situation as we have it today. Indeed, its consequences for the planet we share were the most dire of all, as we will demonstrate to you increasingly, as this continues.

brought-us-to-the-point

Remember it was your fear that your resources would not be sufficient to satisfy your needs that caused you to add the task of killing planetmates to your food foraging. Remember that your increasing removal of yourself from your felt experience — your insensitivity — allowed you to do this without conscious psychological upset. You began “toughening” yourselves, making yourselves inured to the consequences of your actions.

This reduced connection to your felt experience allowed you to descend into a further diminution of your experience with the cultivation of plants. For your existence previously had been rather easy. It was Nature that went about automatically, with no effort on your part whatsoever, producing what you would need — food and shelter even — without limit or end. You simply had to discern where Divine Providence was “hiding” its gifts and treasures for you to find.

il_fullxfull.300120001

But your increasing lack of faith in Divine Providence and your increasing insensitivity to the quality of your existence — focusing, because of fear, on the quantity of that existence instead — had you take the magic out of living. Any playful interaction with Nature, as in foraging, all adventure involved in it as well, was put to the side, was considered inferior to the value derived from more certainty in your lives, no matter how hard you had to work to make that happen.

Your impatience was manifesting as well. For, originally, Nature would produce its gifts for you on its timetable; adventure … and surprise … and continual reassurance of the benevolence of the All beyond one’s self … were involved in that. It would have you continually reminded of and reinforced in the knowledge that you were in the hands, always, of a kindly and invisible power that knew all — certainly far more than you did or ever could hope to — and was like a best friend to you.

1011617_10201844379532027_1800299908_n

It was most certainly kind, however tricky. It played with you, just as much as you would in relation to the things in your world. Since everything worked out in the end, far better than if you had planned or decided it, you trusted in its ways and its intentions toward you.

nature_collage_1

But increasingly, for the reasons we have been detailing, you found it impossible to exist in a state of Now that was entrancing, you were living in a planned future, having a conceptual existence rather than an experiential one. The richness of life was increasingly faded from it. And in this faded reality, the present was for you only the precursor to a more desirable future … always off ahead of you … out of immediate reach, but taunting and luring you with the promise of ease of your unbearable feelings of impatience and uncertainty.

9114_3148370008581_1582644380_n

So, in extending conscious control over the timetable of your obtaining food, through the process of horticulture, you could not have all you wanted whenever you wanted, but at least, you told yourself, you could have a pretty good idea of when you would have it … living now more in time rather than in experience … and you could deal with your uncomfortable impatience by giving it a promise of a time and an image of a future where it would be satisfied. This was a step down from full existence as we know it and as you once did, in that when that time of satisfaction would come, it would quickly be over and the impatience and uncertainty would rise up their fearsome forms right away. And somehow you did not learn that or get the lesson from that, but simply substituted another imaginary time of satisfaction off in the future that you could focus on.

At any rate, this development of yours of extending your control over — we would say interference into — Nature’s Flora Kingdom with the institution of horticulture … farming … began in your species about 25,000 years ago. Not many of you engaged in it initially, but more and more did over time. It began to take hold of more of you 10,000 years ago, and became visible as a major aspect of your kind especially 5,000 years ago. Today, there is virtually none of you who live in the old ways, relying on Nature. There is all of you living for some future reward for present expenditure of energy — work — instead of opening such “presents” in the here and now.

600941_421375421295174_503545960_n

Indeed, your tendency to project all happiness into a future time, unattainable in any present, would leave you more and more despairing as you would see the end of your lives ahead of you and with the realization at hand that such a future time would really never come. So it would push you to imagine even a time after death in which you would be able to receive the rewards for all your work in the present.

549540_2230830187071_52049970_n

You would reinforce your inability to live in the present by focusing on a “heaven” after death when you would get the enjoyment of life of which you are depriving yourself while alive and which a part of you knows you are missing.

The Great Reveal from the Planetmates, The Tenth Prasad: Being-Awareness-Bliss and Human’s Descent Into Savagery

beck_nuke

Planetmates Release The Tenth Prasad

You first began your fearful, deluded controlling when you added Planetmate flesh to your former vegetarian diet

Pig was First Consciousness at The Tenth Prasad.

"Your descent into aggression and savagery started here, because when you learned how to kill fellow Planetmates...it was not too long before you began to be able to kill each other."

The Tenth Prasad – Becoming Controlling, Becoming Killers

Rather than the natural state of being, awareness, and bliss, your state of omnipresent fear caused you to be ever more unable to accept the gifts of life and survival on Nature’s terms, which were uncertain, but on the other hand, adventurous and surprising. It is the state we enjoy and find blissful and playful and always interesting. Your fear made you unable to bear the uncertain state. So, being impatient, and therefore unwilling to receive sustenance and nurturing on Nature’s timetable, you first began taking control of when you would be nourished by adding planetmate flesh to your former vegetarian diet.

Your descent into aggression and savagery started here, because when you learned how to kill fellow planetmates, which had not been in your nature prior to the prematurity trauma and your constant adult state of tension, it was not too long before you began to be able to kill each other. Continuing to lose faith in the reality of divine perfection, love, and nurturing, which all other planetmates know without doubt, you thought you needed to compete over resources and sometimes to kill your own to keep from starving, or to keep from being killed. The first was your delusion, the second was your delusion made real among yourselves.

The Tenth Prasad from The Planetmates: Part One – Faith vs. Fear, Playful vs. Predictable

dog-in-daisy-field-paintThe issues highlighted in the commentary relate to that of the blissful existence of the Planetmates based on absolute faith in the goodness of Existence contrasted with the fearful one of humans based on mistrust, and of the adventurous, playful lives of the Planetmates compared to the striving for predictability and certainty of humans.

The Tenth Prasad from The Planetmates: Part Two – Descent Into Savagery Begins

This next video is a continuation of the commentary of The Tenth Prasad, as received from The Planetmates. The issues highlighted in this commentary relate to the descent into savagery that began with the switch from a completely vegetarian diet to one that included planetmate flesh and involved hunting and killing. Very importantly this led to the ability to be able to kill other humans as well. This momentous development—its significance and consequences—is elaborated upon.

Paraphrase/Elaboration of The Tenth Prasad — by SillyMickel Adzema

More and more your lives were a contrast to our own. While you were consumed with fear and because of that seeking to control events, we have a doubtless faith in the rightness of events and a playful attitude toward the unfolding of events. The natural state of all beings and as far as we can tell the nature of Reality Itself, is Being, Awareness, Bliss. That is to say, all Existence is Beingness. It is all conscious. In your terms you might say that all of Reality is one Being or one Life Form. You can think of it that way, if you wish. The point to grasp is that there is no place where consciousness is not. Even that which you think of as the inanimate Universe is life in a form you simply are unable to perceive. It is beingness. What you call things, and physical, are aspects of Being.

But beyond that all of Reality is Aware. That is to say, it is cognizant of Itself as being conscious. It knows it is part of a greater whole and that it exists in relation to various parts, interacting with them. Indeed, there are as many types of awarenesses as there are possibilities for finding whole and integrated patterns, functioning as a unit, in the Universe. There are as many awarenesses as there are complete systems. Put it this way, your Earth is a system. It is aware of Itself as part of It All and in comparison to and interaction with other planets and celestial beings and forces. Viruses and bacteria and cells that exist in your body are Aware. They have the equivalent of lived “lives” and know they are part of a larger whole and they know of their existence at least in relation to beings alike to them — other cells, bacteria, viruses, and things on that level. Your kidneys and other organs are beings in themselves, interacting in awareness with each other; your nations are a consciousness aware of its participation in a whole and interacting with parts like itself. You of course know you are parts of many larger realities — nation, planet, family, city. Each whole pattern is a configuration of Spirit, in some form or other. And these patterns are overlapping, interacting, and infinite in number. There are an infinite number of “stories” therefore … there are as many as there are integrated, whole patterns … of anything … in the Universe, able to act as a unit, thus creating itself, and interact with other units of its kind, which create the boundaries between beings … however temporary and arbitrary. [Footnote 1]

But is there a problem with that? Does that sound hard or difficult for some reason? You see, here you already have your controlling mania seeping in to cloud your perception. For you cannot comprehend such infinite complexity of existence, for you cannot help but feel someone must manage each one of those systems of awareness. You see everything as needing to be put together, made to operate, and requiring control to keep it functioning properly. You do not have a clue that perfect synchronicity and functioning are the fundamental things of Reality and that your controlling or managing of anything is, in fact, like throwing a monkey wrench into these perfect workings, not aiding or assisting them. Reality is not built up from inanimate, separate objects; it is broken down or diminished from Perfection Itself and Totality … of harmony and synchronicity. Which leads to the next quality of Existence.

All beingness existing, all existence being beingness, all beingness being awareness, and all awareness being conscious of its perfect relation to all and everything and the perfection of the It All, the Universe’s nature is perceived by all beings as Beauty, and the Nature of Experience that is the Universe is Bliss. Indeed, this was your birthright as well. In some of your spiritual awarenesses, you are still able to sense and to know of Reality as being this way. But you struggle, for the most part, blind to this sort of Beauty.


Following from that, all Reality being Bliss — and there being no darkness and light to struggle with each other — there are no dire consequences for any action in the Universe. Hence every action, event, and drama of the Universe is play. Indeed, that is the way we view our existences, our lives — as being play and with no dire consequence whichever way it goes. Hence, we can risk more, in this play; we can be full of play … playful. And part of that play — a part that enhances that play — is the uncertainty of life and its unpredictability. We exist in time, which is another way of saying, we have parts of Reality, parts of our play, that we hide from ourselves so that when we come across them they can contribute to our enjoyment. Inherent in unpredictability is surprise — which can be pleasant or unpleasant. But because perfection is the Nature of It All at some level, we know that unpleasant is simply a part of something larger that is a greater pleasant — Indeed the variability, contrast, and unpredictability of life are what create the Beauty, as we are able to see it. All aspects of life, as they unfold, therefore, are conducive to greater and greater wonder and awe. When not caught up in the drama of the play — and its fluctuations of pleasant-unpleasant, light-dark — we live in such awestruck wonder.

However, your state of ominipresent fear caused you to lose faith in the goodness of Nature/ the Divine as it is. You became increasingly fearful of what would happen in any future time and so spent your time seeking to determine that future through fervid controlling activities in the present, which consumed both your consciousness and became your lived Existence. You turned the play and uncertainty of life into drudgery, for uncertainty being a cause for fear and anxiety, you would need to work incessantly in all present time to store up against so as to fend off any imagined unpleasant in future time. Present time was for you anxious — filled as it was for you with incomplete remnants of past early experience which constantly inserted itself into and colored all your experience. So to contemplate uncertainty about the outcome of events, about the future and what it would hold, in addition to that anxiety, was increasingly more than you could bear, or were willing to take on. The anxious backdrop of your lives, carried through life from your beginnings into it, combined with what we consider the spice of unpredictability, which leads to a feeling of adventurous engagement in life for us, was instead for you a reminder of the pain of birth and its overwhelming sensations — too much at once to bear — and the pain of waiting for satisfaction of needs as an infant. You naturally do not want to be reminded of those feelings, so you began the process of separating yourself from your present experience … putting it out of your mind, becoming less than your self. The feeling that resulted from the combination of past pain coming through in the present and present uncertainty is what you call impatience. It is something you do not and did not want to feel, so you would separate from it, splitting your mind, and so would have no or less feeling rather than an unpleasant one. Sometimes you call that feeling of nothing, caused by your separation from the present, boredom. Believe me, it is something we never feel as life to us is always entrancing, adventurous, surprising, and engaging … at any rate, it is always interesting … never boring.

To repeat, life is uncertain because we do not know the future consequences of our present actions, but we see that as part of the joyous adventure, whereas that fact causes you dread. So our natural state is one of being, awareness, and bliss, and our lives are surprising, playful, and always interesting; whereas yours became one of impatience, defiance toward Nature/ the Divine in all its forms, and set toward fighting imaginary threats in a state of fervid, obsessive controlling of things inside and around you. Our blissful existence, based on absolute faith in the goodness of Existence contrasts with your fearful existence based on mistrust. Our adventurous playful lives are starkly different from your lives of constant working to make life predictable and certain, in the future, through controlling-type activities, in the present.

Now, what came with that impatience and the controlling activities was the unwillingness to accept your sustenance and nurturing on Nature’s terms and on Her timetable. This had the most dire consequences. For with this controlling, wrought of fear, came your propensities for killing and the descent into the savage beings which increasingly became the trait that most characterized and defined what is human.

Impatient with the divine timetable for the satisfaction of needs, in particular, hunger, and more cut off from the felt experience of life … becoming more insensitive to it and to the consequences of your actions … allowed you to begin supplementing your mostly vegetarian diets with planetmate flesh. You could observe other beings in Nature killing and eating each other. It was natural that in your first actions emanating from your anxiety about satisfaction of needs, you would begin doing the same. This lifestyle included hunting … and killing.

In your first reactions to your early pain you had ritual, next you would kill.

The basic needs of physical existence, like sustenance, food, we accept as gifts from God; your crazed state caused you to seek to control this aspect of existence, to make it less certain. Your first attempt to do that involved your adding Planetmate flesh to your former, exclusively vegetarian, diet. You had been happy accepting God’s varied and often surprising gifts through foraging, but now you began what you called “hunting,” as well. This began your descent into aggression and savagery.”

Prior to your prematurity trauma it had not been in your nature to kill, let alone eat, flesh that resembled your own — those that you call “animals.” But with your lives of increasing tension and as your continued loss of touch with Real Existence diminished and your lives lived in your substitute world of monochromatic ghostly symbols expanded, you became insensitive enough to the spilling of blood to make life and death decisions over fellow Planetmates. After that, it was not long before you were intruding on God’s domain by making these decisions about each other, as well.

You first began to kill each other out of your fear that there would not be enough sustenance for all — what you call “competition over resources.”
Planetmates know without doubt that they are interwoven with and therefore infinitely loved and sustained by a God who is perfect in His care and nurturing of us in every way, even the tiniest and most insignificant.

d_bbirdcatcatscutefriendship-bfaa427e0efe3de864e63130c3f40e12_h

So your fear of dying through lack of sustenance was your delusion wrought of your crazed, increasingly ghostly existence.

sghsgjhsgjsdjdjd

But as more of you believed it, you created the very real threat of being killed, for that reason, by one of your own kind. So, out of your delusion of scarcity of resources, you created the reality that you would need to kill in order to keep from being killed.

1.  Re: Being/Awareness: from Voices of the First Day, p. 49. “ ‘With your mentality, these tall buildings are the result of the dreams and plans of architects, engineers, and builders. But the Aborigine also sees that the stones and bricks themselves have an inner potential — a dreaming to become a structure.’ As much as the builders dreamed and projected the building, so too did the stones dream and project the minds, hands, and activities of the builders.” (and so on from there) … “Why is it not possible … that the essence of consciousness is within the stone.”
