GENIUS bOARD iNSANITY

mental illness is a serious risk in the genius biz, true…
 
"a comment from Sri Aurobindo, who points out that “the occupational disease of the yogi is insanity,” and that the purpose of yoga is not to feel better and be more flexible, or last longer, or even live longer. Physical yoga is to help one fine tune the body is so that the energy that you are really interested in does not burn you up. In this way of thinking, the physical health part is almost a kind of a secondary interest."http://www.enlightenment.com/blogs/j/jordan/jordan3/archives/2005/01/transcript_from_1.html
 
That’s what makes having a "School" (so important. I’m not just making this up, nor am I putting you on (in any sense). Undoubtedly you’ve all (?!) been "attending class" for more than your brief (current) human chronological life span…re-membering through formal connection and practise can be truly momentous at those times in ones evolutionary process, tho.
 
Just one example of the upcoming generation’s psychick precociousness, in my on-going investigation of this trendy newage phenomenon precociousness, from earlier this week – your giving the "indigo or orange" set of options when referencing my 2nd chakra diagnosis of your constitutional chakra block (or "short-circuit") demonstrates that amply enough -you know your stuff!
 
my first oto (Western Trad.) Initiation activated the chakras corresponding to the colours Indigo (third eye) and orange (navel)* – that’s in the Shaivite system of colour correspondences (I highly recommend the charts which are free and downloadable –
 
 
as for being queer, the bible ‘n’ all that, i’ve got lots to say, but for now i’ll just leave you with this…enjoy! 😉
 
folklore, mythology, cultural studies and related disciplines

"For all the attention on gay and lesbian in the media and the arts – all of which can be broadly construed as modern-day myth-making – whole areas of ‘gender ambiguity’ (such as those linked with the wide spectrum of congenital hermaphroditic conditions that occur in one to five percent of births) are still entirely ‘liminal’ to the modern day ‘cosmology’ of sexuality.

"Although deeply interwoven with modern Western thinking, Christian notions of sin and Freud’s models of human mental processes are both entirely mythical notions. Both are substantial obstacles to understanding sexuality implicit or explicit in non-western myths. Alan Watts was closer to the mark when he noted that:

    "’… mythology is not sexual, but sexuality is mythological, since the union of the sexes prefigures the transcending of duality, of the schism whereby man’s experience is divided into subject and object, self and other. ‘
    (
    Watts 1954: 180fn)
"As an example of what has often been missed, Jonathan Z. Smith’s discussion of Israel and Jerusalem as the centre of the Judaic cosmos observes:
    "’More mysteriously, the land [of Israel] is the center of fertility, because heavenly beings engage in sexual intercourse in it, an intercourse at the heart things which establishes and guarantees the fertility of the world. It may be expressed in some traditions by the belief that on top of the Ark in the Holy of Holies, the cherubim have been engaged in an act of unending intercourse since the beginning of time and if they should ever cease, the cosmos would collapse into chaos, or by the tradition … of YHWH having nightly intercourse with his bride on the ‘couch’ of the site of the Temple in Jerusalem.
    (
    Smith 1978: 115) ‘"

I am back from my sojourn to the Northern SSC (husband in tow, somewhat unexpectedly – but certainly for the best).

Where are my loyal fans? As a paranoid I’m typically becoming convinced that this Blog is censored, as obviously no one is reading it! (one of my all-time heroes, WSB, points out that if you’re not at least a *little bit* paranoid, you’re crazy!)

Ah well pushed for time as usual so this generic note to anyone who cares will have to do this a.m.

Enjoy – and Goddess Bless Yer Mess, Too!

FOR thee Androgynous Angel of Prince George

Guess you’ll be having a weekend off any time. Maybe we’ll chat then. I’m working this weekend but not sure when yet. For now I will share w/you surreptitiously in absentia, some angelic lore…

Here’s my favorite Angel book – or rather, one of the "top three" anyway:

Here’s the other top two, both by the same guy (who I’ve met in person):

And an interview w/said person, P.L. Wilson:

Here’s a short piece by the editor of the above compilation,  Maria Parisen:

A poem about the "necessary angel" by one of my favourite American poets:

And a song I wanted you to hear sometime – for now you can read the words:

FLESH by Jan Johnston – DJ Teisto remix

=========================

 ahhh.. baby, i can hardly recognize myself
mmmmmmmm…. touch me

The light is going blue.
Morning approaches.
The pain´s still here.
I´m empty – empty – empty.

Sounds of the world,
Of laughter and tears.
I´ve nothing left.
I´m empty – empty – empty.

Heaven is forbidden
But I´m going soon
Kiss me one last time
before i take my flesh away
Heaven is forbidden
But I´m going soon
Kiss me one last time
Kiss me one last time

I want wisdom on tap, flowing like water
strange i want that because
I´m empty – empty – empty.

So now eat your words,
I hope you choke.
I feel nothing no more.
I´m empty – empty – empty.

ahhh.. baby, i can hardly recognize myself
mmmmmmmm…. touch me

Heaven is forbidden
But I´m going soon
Kiss me one last time
before i take my flesh away
Heaven is forbidden
But I´m going soon
Kiss me one last time
Kiss me one last time

going off! at the plane-arium

Miracle of miracles and wonder of wonders – K & I actually made it to the Listening Room ’05 event at the Vancouver Planetarium this Saturday (Sept. 10) just passed.

 

While it was a shortish, and smallish event (as "raves" go…), it was definitely "stylin" and a whole lot of fun. The homos were out in droves – once we’d settled ourselves at the top row of seating in a corner by one of the exits, we were quickly surrounded by a half-dozen or more fags. Either there was a whole heap of us present, or they all gravitated to our area of the room for some strange reason.

 

Another of my MSN Messenger buddies also happened to be in attendance; a funny coincidence, really…She is one of maybe 10 or so folks who regularly sign in on my Messenger list. So is the event organizer who turned me on to the Listening Room and ensured that K. and I got a two-for-one deal (as "disabled person and escort")… Funny thing, they’re both "roomies" with other players who made the event go off…and they don’t know each other (but they both know me) – sorta one of those ‘6 degrees of separation’ scenarios….

 

I don’t know who was doing the Live PA @ midnight, but they were KICKIN IT!! I started really tuning in to one musician on stage as he started to evoke ear-splitting screeches from an eldritch-looking piece of equipment about the size and shape of a convection oven – only made of ‘heavy metal’ and all hollowed-out like (no outer case so you could see all the insides of whatever-it-was)…This intsrument and the artists who wove it into their performance caused me to reach a whole new level of altered state – I was totally taken over by the groove and moved my body like I’d never be able to by the force of my own measly ego-will…

 

What fun!

 

At that point I had fully gotten my $20 dollars worth…Saw another good friend there, and departed shortly.

 

K. had enough of a good time that I may be able to get him out to such events with more regularity again now that he remembers how much fun it can be! Thanks shadowcat and Dave for helping provide that experience for my hubby, hey?

 

Ciao for now….

What’s all this “bruthah-man” stuff, anyway – whitey?!

The "official title" of those individuals (such as myself) who have received Initiation into the First Degree (I°) of the Ordo Templi Orientis (OTO – one of those secret societies which rules the world, you know – like the "Kaballistic Jews"), is "Man and Brother" – or "Woman and Sister" as the case may be…

I am not sure what to propose as a suitable title for us "third-gender" types…I suppose that’s arguably what the "inscrutable" 11th Degree is all about…(oops – that’s a secret – shh!).

This (First) Degree "bestows full membership upon the initiate…the spiritual link forged between the initiate and the Order during the ceremony of the First Degree will remain throughout the initiate’s life." For more info on this abstruse topic, please visit the following sites:

Just what is an OBE, anyway?
