May I speak to you as though you are an intelligent human being with a conscientious attention-span?
This movie is an unapologetic parable that attempts to capture the reckless trajectory of our modern culture. All things considered, it’s very well done; great acting, left-handedly humorous and sardonic, a little slow-paced at times which seems intended to stretch the attention-span.
This movie is packed with subtlety and DEFINITELY worthy of a re-watch, and here are a handful of subjective axioms I hope you'll consider as you watch:
Parables play a riddling trick on our physiology; just like life, they poke and hope and tickle at our attention-span. If you watch this movie only to be entertained, then just like life, YOU are the very fool of His story.
The monster in this movie is your receptive earthly flesh, and the beautiful woman plays the role of your eternal soul.
It’s just a movie, right?
Yeah, well, nothing is as it seems when we live in the selfish dream, for the whole of soul includes the sleep of all we choose not to see, and EVERYTHING bears the soulful scent of synchronicity rising from the ashes of all that we take literally.
…a quick clarifying disclaimer: “success” to me is all about SELF realization, and identifying the Universal principles that apply to all of us equally with regard to setting the soul free from the limitations of the dreaming ego. You don't have to agree, I'm only watering a mustard seed.
"Seek ye first the Kingdom and all things will be added unto you"
Beneath the sleeping surface of our modern definitions I awoke in the light of a deeper understanding. There’s truly nothing special about me; see me and you'll see through the wise eyes of your empathy, but if you don’t believe in me you’ll only see what you need to see …THIS is the left hand of Irony.
Make no mistake, we live in the decadent stage of Capitalism, and our ignorance is by far the most lucrative commodity.
Something I've realized as I wake-up and shake-off my sheep's sleep; if I identify as the victim, I blame anything outside my Self, which trains a circuit in my brain to view responsibility as a villain.
Women have always ruled this earth, and little boys have always aspired to grow-up to be exactly what women find attractive. The simple math of biology.
Money is the new God, and women make GREAT consumers once they're trained to worship their vanity and impulsiveness. Division politics, gender warfare, consumer attention-span, indulgence is normal/depression is a disease, instant-gratification media ...the trusty ole machine of ignorance is working overtime to possess the souls of the impressionable.
I assure you that a sincere search for truth will very quickly offend the confidence of every modern woman …and the men who love them.
Despite what you’ve been conditioned to believe, the word “Patriotism” isn’t about loyalty, it’s about “proactive process improvement”. Think about it, any social structure that isn’t built on integrity is destined to fail, so if the society you're born into makes a profitable virtue of its own lack of integrity, isn’t "loyalty" like joining a bunch of Babbling idiots at the top of a crumbling Tower?
Those who know the way don't need a lot of help; those who need a lot of help must pay with what they know, if they are made to pay in some other way, the only one helped is the deceiver.
When love divine is redefined to mean consumption, then shall the moon be called brighter in the true light of day, and the nature of time will come as a mother who feeds on the souls that she spoils.
Water follows the path of least resistance, which is a hint about the way that children learn.
Individually and collectively, the shallow river that we follow will eventually flood into the sea, and only the depth of what we know can rescue our soul from sinking.
“Why does the world need to know what it’s like to crash into the sea” –GREAT question!
The words of the soul go deep, but depth today is a lonely language.
The most ennobling of words are lost like a whisper in a chaos of triviality and ironically trendy semantics.
Ignorance will always try and dictate the conversation, and all it wants to talk about is lower expectation.
Did you know that words are redefined over time? For example, a truer definition of the word "optimism" is, "the ability to view pessimism optimistically", but I bet if you said that to any modern optimist they'd unfriend you with the swift confidence of a socially-validated expert.
Those who profit from weakness have no incentive to work for strength. Are you sure it’s wise to rely on the counsel of your social conditioning?
Rely on the integrity of the wits within you and your wits will grow ever stronger, but if your wits learn only to thrive on a contrived paradigm, then what you MUST outwit is a parasite.
Children are intuition’s witness, and mothers are the empirical evidence of our SHARED receptive nature.
I’m not saying that women are responsible; they’re NOT responsible, they are receptive by nature, and yet women have been the liberated model of responsibility for generations of children, in charge of defining the selection criteria of the entire breeding population, so what I am saying is REALLY LOOK at the world around you through the eyes of your ideals, and search your soul for a deeper definition of the word “responsibility”.
SHE has not the faith to make sacred things sacred, SHE has not the mind to take serious things seriously, SHE has not the heart to love beyond her own desire.
SHE is Legion.
Every effect is born of a cause, and Irony too is kin to nature.
The murdering monsters and the modern mystics both share this same motive in common: they’re haunted by an overwhelming cultural lack of personal accountability.
“Babylon the great, mother of prostitutes and all of earth’s abominations”
Who thrives in a world of cheap plastic? Those who are gifted with the plastic touch, that all that they touch be made cheap.
The human creature grows PHYSICALLY, EMOTIONALLY, and MENTALLY, regardless of gender we are each of us mother to these three, so "Mother" is the nurturing role that belongs to the whole of natural human maturity, it is NOT the insecure fairytale of spoiled narcissists, and we prostitute integrity by adopting the trendy language that ignorantly calls the deception beautiful.
It’s toxic to the mind to believe in someone who isn’t real, and it can take a wasted lifetime of chasing neurotic demons to finally realize that there’s really NO SUCH THING.
Honor, discipline, integrity …only the odd chromosome can lead the stray sheep back home.
What this world needs is responsible daddy's who don't pimp all their energy managing mommy's immaturity.
The responsible father will take his time and first grow wise and then select a bride who is more receptive to Him than she is to modern human nature.
I think even the most childish of humans would have to agree, it's a fortunate soul who is born unto a mature family, and when you make maturity the priority, you find yourself participating in how things are MEANT to be, which is the natural source of harmony and security.
When we take responsibility we are given responsibility over ever greater things, and responsibility is how we truly honor fertile femininity, after all, what does Mother Nature lack but for the sacred seeds of the Father?
“Wealth, comfort, popularity” –sorry to poke holes in your American dream, but these are the materialistic needs of a woman's insecurity, and wise masculinity is lost in the rearview mirror of this perpetually-insecure trajectory.
Truth is enlightened by full sun; we followed our future by moonlight alone and the path has led us to lunacy.
A sensational life is Mother Nature’s abundant gift, but her deception hides in a meaningless death by the hand of cause and effect.
“Forgive them for they know not what they do”
The prize of the wise resides in the light of DOING what is right; those who are most receptive to modern human nature only DO what comes naturally, which is to stake a claim on what is right and shape it as the prize of their vanity.
The woman of Babylon is so much more than just another stupid whore, Arjuna; she is the left hand of receptivity, where she carries the secret map that reveals the movements of your enemy.
The wise serpent glorifies weakness the right way.
You are born with the shield of a conscience and with the mighty sword of your will power. To be good by instruction is still fake plastic servitude, but to be good by choice is the freeing result of an intuitive comprehension of Universal principles.
You are born with a conscience and it knows by instinct that wisdom assuredly is maturity’s natural inheritance.
Virtue, by its obvious nature, is virtuous. Only ignorance requires that a virtue be made of virtue.
To be perfectly clear, that stuff about virtue WAS a verbal spanking; true love does not nurture ignorance, and true compassion does not foster apathy.
LOVE does NOT nurture ignorance *spank*
COMPASSION does NOT foster apathy *spank*
...and yes, all this is an effort to stretch your attention-span.
As every true healer knows, pain is the seed of gratitude, and humility is wisdom lubricant.
The part of you I love is the part of you that knows how to love, so BE understanding in this moment when I don’t apologize for trying to wreck the peace of mind of your duplicity.
YOU ARE A CONSCIOUS MIRACLE!
Like the roots of a strong tree, one necessary half of all enlightened things only grow in the dark.
The sacred gift that the Devil gave is the knowledge of good and evil, without this gift we human animals operate on emotional instinct alone, completely ignorant of how NOT to live.
"Sympathy" is emotional deception; "Empathy" is perceptive integrity ...think about it, you could learn a lot from the Devil if you put yourself in His shoes, rather than reacting defensively or offendedly and being swept away by fear or desire or any other childish emotion with which your sympathy has been trained to eagerly identify.
So how do you kill the Devil? Well, the darkness of who we really are isn’t all that scary when the light of our right mind shines brightly.
All that is natural belongs to Nature; all that is good belongs to God. It's important to respect our host and give the credit to our Maker, otherwise the image we create is just make-up painted on a faker.
Until you purify your receptive side your flesh will never be the virgin bride of the wise Savior of your mind.
It is said that a man is the head of a woman, and the "Truth" of this belongs to all of us equally, but "telling the truth" is an assertive practice, and assertiveness is a masculine quality, so if you have not the courage and integrity to tell the truth of what we lack as a society, then you ARE the prostitute profiting from the weakness of huManity.
It is not wise to capitalize on the ignorance of your own kind.
Are you SURE it’s wise to rely on the counsel of your social conditioning?
We have only to shift our eyes and see wisdom in the inward direction opposite of what's trendy among us.
There once was a time in our legitimate linage when intellection and metaphor comprehension were general conditions of our social character, and there's a legitimate reason that time is known as the Enlightened Era.
EMPATHY is is the key to our true history, and the cure for a meaningful legacy.
We're taught to believe that men aren't nearly as insightful, but what does your intuition tell you?
At a certain spot on the path all the signs are seriously subtle.
Honor thy Mother with the fruit of your receptivity; honor thy Father by choosing wisely what you are receptive to.
Somewhere in the words is a simple philosophy that's free to love ...but don't take my word for it; think for your SELF and set your future free.
There are plenty of cool things about living in the convenient plastic age, but what is the price that we pay?
Whether you're aware of it or not, we all contribute to, and are affected by, collective consciousness. Sorry to break the news to your selfish ego, but it's not about YOU, it's about what WE are becoming.
There’s a HUGE disparity between what’s right and what’s "normal", and that’s because enough generations now have grown-up without a wise example to help them bridge the psychological gap between the conscience inside and the social expectations outside. Discernment, healthy boundaries, intelligent self control, being the boss of impulses and reckless emotions, a comprehensive understanding of the light and dark of human nature …these are the diligent duties of the responsible father.
Wisdom IS integrity, and instruction is the integral duty of the truly wise.
That which is born of ignorance is ignorant; the prodigal victim of an inherited habit of delinquency, and there are PLENTY of delinquents already.
You are so much more than the idiot utility of future weakness.
The facts in the past is where fear grows fat, sucking on the milk of your sentiment and sympathy.
Bravely open the door of true masculinity and step out of your mommy's house and into integrity.
Pick the weeds from your garden, because until you KNOW the right way to love, all that you grow will be served back to you by the left hand of Nature.
The justified victim will ALWAYS need a responsible villain, and the last thing we need is more victims and villains.
Emotion tamed is intuition
The intellect humbled is reason
Reason and intuition together are wisdom
There is no wisdom more profound than innocence comprehended
When mother's so love their children as to make of wisdom a breed-worthy virtue we will once again live in the light, in the meantime, wisdom is the junk-food of those who are what they eat.
Remember the trick that parables play, OH, and that thing about empathy and history?
If you are defensive and offended by the words of wisdom then you TAKE only what is bad from me, and what is good passes through you like junk-food. If you GIVE what is good to the mud at your feet then you are one of the lost offspring of Ham, who TOOK only what was bad from the vast wisdom of his father and GAVE only what was bad to the generations of his children.
Those who are swine have not a hope of the light in their lifetime, and they thrive by consuming pearls as slop, thus they serve to richly fertilize this earth and they serve even the servants by way of an impossibly ignorant example.
It's important to get all the puzzle pieces in their right place, and there's an important reason that Religion and Philosophy are such legitimate pillars of our cultural history ...how many thousands of years worth of human profundity does it take to shake awake a modern age?
If mocking moral institutions is comfortable for you, as is devaluing masculinity, and meaningless sex, and trivial acquaintances, and generally cheapening your conscience and character, then you've no doubt found a confident way to integrate in modern society, and to you I must seem like the dirty damned Devil himself.
Let my words be as food to the hungry.
So am I the Devil's advocate trying to tempt you with a bite out of apathy?
Well, maybe, but the term "free will" implies that you are conscious of a choice, and like a fork-tongued serpent coiled up a metaphoric tree, I'm trying to cut you free of your puppet strings.
I'm not here to tell you that you're wrong, I hope to see how right you can be.
There's a literal UNIVERSE of difference between confidence and conviction, but they appear the same when a mind is trained to worship only what keeps it the same.
“Do not conform to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind”
Just like you, I'm on a journey, and just like you my words are a breadcrumb evidence of the path that I took. I know I'm fumbling my long-winded way through bitterness and hypocrisy, but God, I would LOVE to speak intelligently with conscientious folks who empathize with my motive because a perpetual-growth-perspective is the wedding gift their Mother gave them.
Well, if you made it this far I salute you, and if your wizened mind didn't need the spanking, then I humble myself at the feet of all that your kinship can teach me.
Thanks for letting me practice stirring the soul of conscious human potential.
-Best a luck out there!
