Ganesha Rabbi Ba’al Shivah

Image

That is a picture of Lon Milo Duquette speaking at Clarement University on the topic, “Good and evil, get over it”.  Lon’s favorite Indian Deity is Ganesha.  He loves and collects Ganesha memorabilia.  Lon probably already knows everything I am about to tell you about Ganesha, but it is good writing practice for me.  This also ties in with the last topic I wrote about so it seems pretty auspicious;)

I didn’t like the stories that I found online so I am retelling the story as I remember it and think of it. 

Shiva, who was known to go on long walkabouts being that he was a tzaddick, a wandering, holy man, teacher, came home one day and found a strange boy blocking the door to his bedroom.  The boy barred his entrance, and that incensed Shiva, this was after all his home, he was tired and he wanted to see his wife and relax.  Shiva fights the boy and cuts his head off.  Parvati comes out and is inconsolable, she informs Lord Shiva that it is his own child and she was pregnant with him when he left.  Shiva goes out and cuts the head off the first animal he sees which is an elephant, and he resurrects the child with the head of an elephant.  Thus resurrecting Ganesha.  Ganesha has the body of a Siddha. 

Siddhas were early age wandering adepts that dominated ancient Tamil teaching and philosophy, they were extensively knowledgeable in ScienceTechnologyAstronomyLiteratureFine ArtsMusicDramaDance, and provided solutions to common people in their illness and advice for their future.[1] Some of their ideologies are believed to have originated more than 10,000 years ago during the First Cankam.[2] Shiva is believed to be the earliest Siddha.[3] According to one South-Indian book, the South Indian Siddha were expelled by the Indo-Aryan invaders leaving many of their traditions lost or distorted.[4]

In the Hindu philosophy (of Kashmir Shaivism), siddha refers to a Siddha Guru who can by way of Shaktipat initiate disciples into Yoga. A Siddha, in Tamil Sittar, means “one who is accomplished” and refers to perfected masters who, according to Hindu belief, have transcended the ahamkara (ego or I-maker), have subdued their minds to be subservient to their Awareness, and have transformed their bodies (composed mainly of dense Rajotama gunas) into a different kind of body dominated by sattva. This is usually accomplished only by persistent meditation.

Ganesha is the remover of obstacles, which I suspect is why Lon has an affinity for him, like myself we are constantly rejected and reviled, until recently.  The Siddha’s are the perfected beings.  They are humans with uncanny, supernatural, preternatural insight and abilities.  They have attained enlightenment, they have crossed the abyss.  

Siddhis[note 1] are spiritualmagicalsupranormalparanormal, or supernatural powers acquired through a sadhana (spiritual practices), such as meditation and yoga.[1] People who have attained this state are formally known as siddhas.[2]

Siddhi is a Sanskrit noun which can be translated as “perfection”, “accomplishment”, “attainment”, or “success”.[3] In Tamil the word Siddhar/Chitthar refers to someone who has attained the Siddhic powers & knowledge. Chith is pure consciousness/knowledge in Sanskrit also.~wikipedia

Gurumayi once said that Hebrew and Greek still have the same spiritual vibration that is present in sanskrit, but not modern English.  I respectfully disagree with her, being a linguistic philosopher and a philologist, and a phonologist, I have found that there are words all over the world that have similar sounds and similar meanings.  What makes something sound right to us?  Some kind of pattern in our brain looking for a key to unlock the meaning.  All the words of power are still here just in different forms.  

GANESHA, GNOSIS, GENIUS, GENESIS, GO IN, GYNE. 

The initiate is the one that gets to go in.  Specifically, into the bedroom to have sex with Parvati.  That one is Shiva.  Only Shiva gets to go in.  Iccha shaktir uma kumari, shiva sutra 1:13.  The yogi that yokes himself to Shiva becomes shiva and has the powers of shiva.  I have always thought that the word knight must be related somehow to the word cunt.  The In itiate.  Genesis means going in.  The inbreaths and the outbreaths of Brahma, the first two books of the bible are Genesis and Exodus, the going in and the going out.  Some writing is in spired.

Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.

Ganesha, is Da’ath on the tree of life.  Shiva has 2 sons, skanda the god of war and Ganesha, the scribe.  For this reason Ganesha also takes the place of har poor kraat, the true Horus, the true Hiram, the Hermit.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heru-ra-ha

In late Greek mythology as developed in Ptolemaic AlexandriaHarpocrates (Ancient Greek: Ἁρποκράτης) is the god of silence. Harpocrates was adapted by the Greeks from the Egyptian child god Horus. To the ancient Egyptians, Horus represented the newborn Sun, rising each day at dawn. When the Greeks conquered Egypt under Alexander the Great, they transformed the Egyptian Horus into their Hellenistic god known asHarpocrates, a rendering from Egyptian Har-pa-khered or Heru-pa-khered (meaning “Horus the Child”). ~wikipedia

As I sat in meditation with Gurumayi, and we listened to that melodious Indian instrument, half accordion, half organ, fed by squeezing the breath into the honey like sound of the harmonium, and we chanted her version of the Om namah Shivayah mantra, I recalled my day at the only sanctioned Shinto temple in the United States in Washington.  I realized that what I was witnessing and participating in was an ancient religious right that went all the way back to Atlantis.  The Waking of the Sun ritual.

I recently gave Lon a banner that I have had for years.  That I have always had proudly displayed.  Here is the other one, the sister to the one that Lon now possesses.  He hung his above the door, I hang mine next to the fireplace.  Brahmans are always supposed to have a fire burning in the hearth.  This comes from their ancient hunter gatherer days.  Shiva is the evolution of Rudra, who is the god of fire.  Rudraksha beads are what his mala’s are made out of, which means, eyes of fire, or eyes of Shiva.  Who are modern day Rabbis if they aren’t the meat eaters that were exiled from India with their stinky offerings of burnt flesh to their god?  In China they refer to spirits as “food sniffers” because they don’t have physical bodies, they don’t need to eat the food, they sustain themselves by smelling the food.  The actual food is eaten by the high priests.  Think of the Buddhist priests that beg for food and then offer prayers and healings, and teachings.  

The tribe of Aaron was successful because eating more protein they evolved bigger brains and thought bigger thoughts and dreamed bigger dreams.  The same reason we were constantly exiled, exhaled, is the same reason why we are so successful, our creative intelligence, not something to be ashamed of, something to be proud of.

Hidden Subjects in Action

Image

from the meditaions of Shivastus Solomonicus

Why must we act?  Because we are not in and of ourselves whole.  You have a body that is separate from the world so it appears to be separate from the perspective of the ignorant.      If that is the case sit still without breathing, eating, drinking, talking, looking, masterbating, pooping, and peeing.  Time connects us to the world, the inevitability of time.  The last Titan that eventually eats all of his children, so he wasn’t really killed by the gods of life under Zeus was he?  

We must act, we must inflict ourselves on the world so that we know that we exist.  How else would you know you exist in the world unless you lay hands on it and change it?  Open your mouth and attract attention to yourself?  We are married to the world, we are one with the world.  Your life is a private conversation between you and god that no one else can hear.

Praxis of the Rational.

Image

I_____________________ promise to myself that I will never stop learning or growing being interested, curious, questioning, questing. I will love the real and the true, no matter what it is. I will admit when I am wrong and correct myself happily. Because all knowledge is self knowledge, to have accurate knowledge is to know myself. To reject truth is to hate reality and avoid myself. If I cling to the untrue, the illogical, unreasoned, I hate my true self. If I am not growing and not learning then I am already dead. I will slay that which is deluded in me by learning what is true.I will stay in real-ationship. “Epanasundesi” I realize that the walking on the path is the destination. I will not think about a desired destination. That destination is becoming and I have already arrived. If I realize that I have stepped foot off the path, the praxis of the rational, I will make amends and return to my path that I have set before myself. Not out of guilt or shame but a returning to the analytical, the rational. I will reciprocate good for good. I will not be distracted from those relationships that support me and help me, that create value. I will not take from those relationships and squander resources on relationships that do not pay me back.

I will not engage in strategic behavior to manipulate a desired outcome. I will speak plainly and my words will reflect my accurate thoughts, emotions and actions. I will speak my truth boldly “Parr Hesia” I will remember that there are 3 hidden subjects, my experience of reality, your experience of reality and reality itself. I will not judge tacitly from analogy thinking that I must contend over experiences of reality, I do not choose what is good for others, they do no choose what is good for me. My resources do my will as long as they do not affect the resources of others. Combined resources do combined will, but at the same time remain the property of the persons that earned them.

I will not be tyrannical, arbitrary, or inconsistent. I understand that all valid philosophies pose a meritocracy of some sort so that the individuals can move around freely. I understand that I must remain consistently rational in order to be considered rational. That I must know myself and represent myself accurately. Even when the lights are off and no one is watching I still remain loyal to my own philosophy for myself which I will not conceal from others for the sake of personal gain. I will be known as I am and I will know others accurately as they are. We are equal under reason.

I have taken this burden on myself to make the world a better place, one that I want to live in. I own all wisdom by having the ability to understand it and apply it. All best processes belong to me through this faculty. In order to live in a rational world the people in it have to be rational. I recognize the authority of reason and reason alone. The law was not made by man, but the laws that govern success in relationship are preexisting and immutable. If I want to live in a rational world, I must behave rationally in rational relationship in rational environments.

I am a citizen of the world.
