Holy Man

IMG source - SublimeMagazine

In every culture there is a religious thread. However this spiritual conception is expressed it acknowledges that finite humanity is incompetent to intellectually encompass the full breadth and depth of reality. Certainly particular individuals fail to grasp their incapacity, from euphoric atheists to infidel-slaughtering acolytes of every religion, but more enlightened majorities of societies humbly note their limitations.

Given this fact, every tradition conceives of a path of righteousness that is not based on understanding, but on karma, grace, or wisdom. Carlos Castaneda wrote that a man of knowledge chooses his folly, presumably to keep it out of the way of pressing affairs, and allowing inspiration to inform his actions.

Whatever our cultural roots, we aspire to such a path, intuited or divinely inspired to progress towards our sacred destiny. Regardless of the dross and chaff others appear to be, each of us seeks to effect life per our conception of perfection, righteousness, or inerrancy. None of us is immune to denial, and all of us lapse into conceit when confronted with hurdles we impede our way with, though not knowing we do.

Joseph Campbell, in 'Transformations of Myth Through Time', discusses the Hero's Journey, the cycle of immaculate heroic sacrifice that is woven into the fabric of every society, and we individually relate per our context to ourselves. We are all the hero of our own story.

Neither do I exclude our fellow species from this heroism, as I have often noted sacrificial purpose in the conduct of their lives, from the undeniable ferocity of mother bears, to the gifting of their very lives to their mates and offspring of many creatures. I have heard convincing exegeses that deny the existence of altruism, yet the reverse is equally true, that every action is utterly selfless and ultimately dedicated to the progress of life.

Every conceptualization of life stems from the creation of the first living thing and proceeds to ourselves via an unbroken living sequence. Death has not intervened between that first corpuscle from which our line began and ourselves. Spore, gamete, and clone have carried that living spark unquenched from the initiation of life, and we shine that light into what comes without interruption.

All life is one continuous tapestry woven of that one original thread. Every warp and weft that has become part of the design, every fringe and border, cascade, or eruption grew from that beginning and extended it, though the designs have terminations. That continuous thread has passed into them, and wherever it continues it has passed through them.

That spiritual path is contained not in any one pattern of the the weave, but necessarily thoughout the textile. You, nor another, can be holy, righteous, or inspired unless all that fabric woven of the same thread is also. No Messiah, All-Father, or Mother of God is discrete from the whole: all life is woven of the same thread and stems from that original creation.

So, when I use the term holy man, I do not conceive of some guy in sandals preaching, but the ultimate destiny of life across the universe, where each of our strivings will inevitably contribute to that expression. My lips are made of mud, and I cannot coin a word for the Omnissiah of which we all are a part. There is no whole without every part, neither has any part relevance except holistically.

Of late I have waxed lamentous, decrying the despolation of men, and the foul feminization eradicating the nobility of their agency. I point to the enemies of freedom that would transform our species into servile drones in outrage at the cannibalization of our very spirit, and despair at the prospect of their victory. But, there can be no defeat.

All of life is effecting it's destiny, and no particle eating another can redirect that purpose of which it is but a part. As momentous as the savage sexual alteration of our species undertaken by psychopaths seems to me, it is as much a part of the tapestry as the seventy thousand sexes that arose in the Cambrian Radiation. Ultimately, the designs but add color and pleasing texture to the whole. They do not change it's purpose.

My aspiration for my people and, indeed, for life itself, is to prevent such dark designs from eventuating. I have conceived of a means to do so, to concatenate means of capturing endocrine disrupting weapons, decentralizing power by dispersing means of production to individuals, and exponentially speed the development of technology that will export life across the scattered stars. But, in truth, whether this design becomes woven into the fabric of reality isn't my geas.

It doesn't matter if I succeed in these developments or not, because life will attain to it's ultimate destiny regardless of what I think, or think I do. The continuous spark will continue. The eternal light will shine eternally. A gestalt I cannot conceive, a whole my perceptions cannot encompass, ineluctably proceeds, as it must.

I have conceived of holy man as the ejaculation of life into the galactic wombs fervidly yearning to conceive, verdant, fecund, as if the universe ovulates anticipating our procreative explosion with insatiable lust. At that scale not even millenia of brutal slavery of humanity, of the savage exploitation and rapine abuse of hyperfeminized slaves, are more than a bit of intricate detail in the overall exquisite tapestry. While I seek a route in mere decades and centuries to that inseminal commencement, when we share our delight a billion aeons ahead, whether decades, millenia, or epochs were incorporated into the tapestry to extend it to that happy day, though that history stygian and impenetrably black, it will but enable the brilliant light of joyous color to shine in contrast.

Succeed or fail, ditch dipped in a pool of sick, or dazzled damsel dallying in delight, what we perceive with the limited processors provided in this preface to the novel tale written by the particles and forces in the vast voids of reality, the days we effect, are but strands woven amongst all the threads making up reality. We cannot even holistically conceive of our own little thread, so cannot grasp how it is twined into the line.

In a sense, this is the meaning of grace and karma, of the sorcerer's impeccability of Don Juan. The ineffable future must spring surprises mortals cannot reckon on the fly, yet the design of the universe will be expressed to bless every fiber in the tapestry. We can't cause it to fail and are necessary bits that must comprise it. What is holy cannot be profaned. Eternity cannot end.

Pain, if I have learned the lessons patiently taught by decades of chronic education, is not suffering. Our immediacy blinds us to eternity, but in the fullness of the plot but layers and enhances the novel tale. What we know today is what we do, but we do not put an end to the ongoing eventuation of existence, and our understanding will fully blossom when the seeds of our blessings are ready to fruit.

We each write feverishly our lines as we develop our plot. Securing the humanity of our behaviour and attaining to the blessings of prosperity that stem from our native freedom are that sacred ritual I see unfolding today. As we step today across the threshold into the unknown future, celebrating a new year and a new decade, I wish for you all to know that certainty of the faithful of paradise.

Your fiber of the cloth is utterly integral, intrinsic to the tale of the tapestry. We cannot conceive of our eventual perspective, but when it is woven in it's entirety, each of us will naturally contribute, and encompass withal the whole. There is only one thread. Life has slavered insatiably since it's inception, barbarians sack civilizations, profanity sacrifices all that is good and holy, but these ephemera are merely embellishments on an inviolable fact.

There is no hope. There is no doubt. There is only the fact, and just because we don't know it doesn't cast any shade on it's certain light. There is only one living thing, one life. We are it.

Happy New Year.

You see how easy it is, for some arse hole to ruin your post? This is what is wrong with this shit hole, happy new yew year, I respect you, come on over to flote. anyone can buy in on here and control the narrative, stinc own the most stake, they are the most abusive users, heads up, you are invited to somewhere more "positive" because you are worth it, happy new year.

LOL I confess I saw the flag pop up while editing and wondered why you would flag me =) I must also note that I do not recall a flag I appreciated flying on one of my posts more.


01.01.2020 01:07

The narcissism it must take to assume one's 2-cent downvote and comment could ruin any post.

01.01.2020 01:49

The narcissism it must take to mistake that for narcissism!
He said see how easy it is, not "I ruined your post". His point is obviously that it's easy for some asshole with a large stake to ruin a post or comment, not that he has done so.
Delicious irony.

Come on over to flote bro, you might just like it, at least you could post there and here, double the exposure, with (on flote) no chance for anyone to take your rewards off you. At least give it a try. Happy new year.

01.01.2020 14:39

I took a look at Flote, and it looks to be a Twitter clone with the integral passionate libertarianism of the early internet. While I could scarcely describe how pleasant that free discourse is, and the nostalgia that nearly overwhelmed me, I seem to be unable to register an account.

My tenuous connection to the internet is increasingly compromised as time goes on. My computer is not long for this world anyway, and my enjoyment of our discourse depends on rebuilding the means that allows my participation, and will shortly transcend it's present discouraging aspect.

I'll try again when circumstances permit.

He can now relish in the blessing of my substantive upvote. Chicklets anyone?

01.01.2020 03:18

Oh wow, you own a dictionary, congratulations. :-)

01.01.2020 10:39

You may note the reaction of the person I wanted to get the attention of, the op.
I only did this to gain his attention, and retracted the minuscule downvote last night.
I wanted to draw his attention to a site where his superb work may gain traction and monetary reward, reward without fear of someone taking it off him up to 7 days later (unlike this shit show).
A site where people, patron style, fund you direct to your wallet with zero % commission to the site.
A site with zero negativity (again unlike here).

Happy new year, all the same.

01.01.2020 14:37

Did you ever stop to think that not everyone shares the same experience as yourself? @valued-customer is vastly under-rewarded for his thought provoking work, but I do not think that he posts with fear of loss in mind. Most people that don't buy votes, don't have the same fear irrational fear of loss, and the subsequent visceral reaction to being downvoted. He never succumbed to the folly of assuming someone is taking from him that which he never owned to begin with.

02.01.2020 07:13

I appreciate your kind thoughts and words. Indeed, I do not post for monetary gain, and do not fear financial loss. I learned a long time ago that if it can be taken from you, it was never really yours to begin with.


10.01.2020 02:27

Indeed. Another thing to note: If you continue to do this to valued-customer's posts, his reputation will be reduced to 0, and his posts will be hidden from view. That's just how the blockchain is set up.

01.01.2020 03:00

You may also note I removed my vote, he was chosen for a reason, now continue arguing with yourself!.

01.01.2020 03:09

You are welcome too.

valued-customer !! You are a philosopher! I can't understand your writing, but I think you are an optimist.

06.01.2020 12:26

I hope you do not consider a philosopher despicable =p. As to optimism, having realized that, like Pascal's Wager, reality allows only one philosophical course of merit: extinction renders every question moot, and only our successful posterity matters.

Therefore I simply search for the necessary route to success, ignoring the consequences of failure. Apparently ignorant, as my Pollyannish fever dreams are further proscribed by new information, I am left observing my views are ever less relevant to the political narrative most of us are riveted to. This suits me fine, as I am ignored generally and criticized relevantly by them competent to improve my understanding.

This is the currency I value, the only reward I seek for my travails, and the only encomium potential of enabling my work to succeed. The development, distribution, and dominance of means of production nominal to the security of individual quality of life, including particularly enabling physical security from threats ranging from gangs of thugs to endocrine disrupting environmental chemical poisoning, is necessary for the survival of humanity and preventing our devolution into infertile servants of a deified royal breeding class that will shortly undertake genocide of all that oppose them. This is why society is being terminally divided politically and inflamed to global war even as the technological power to render war and violence obsolete becomes available.

The security of free and prosperous people capable of providing their own quality of life is the opposite of a hive of drones serving the breeding class, and will render institutions obsolete, along with the aspirations of psychopaths that have nearly completely effected the sterilization of the common man today and feel their deification slipping from their grasp.

Censorship, assassination, and genocide are steps along the path to total subjugation of H. vulgaris being implemented today. I have long felt that the proper course of philosophy is action, and given the necessity of freedom to human happiness, I see no purpose in contemplating failure to succeed to attain every good result prophesied of ancient days.

Wiser men than I have claimed certainty that humanity will accede to the stars, spread their good company across the heavens, and enjoy the blessings civilization promises us all. Until that happy day when we meet among the stars, or whenever and wherever we can enjoy each the good company of the other, I commend you to your best efforts to be well and prosperous.

valued-customer , You are a good philosopher and have many thoughts and intellects. However, I don't understand your writing because English is a poor Korean.
Please understand my lack of ability. I am reading your writing through the translator.

Your noble and superior poetic sentences are difficult for me. However, I know you speak beautiful words to me as a good person.

So, thank you for using me at the English level of American boys!

08.01.2020 15:32

나는 영어가 모국어가 아니었다는 것을 몰랐다. 당신은 매우 친절하며 내 말을 번역하는 데 어려움을 겪게되어 영광입니다.


I think that means:

I was unaware English was not your mother tongue. You are very kind, and honor me to go to the trouble to translate my words.
