I WOULD LIKE TO THANK LON MILO DUQUETTE FOR POSING FOR THIS PICTURE AND THE PERMISSION TO USE IT FOR THIS PIECE AND I WOULD LIKE TO THANK LYNN MARIE LE FOR TAKING THE PICTURE AND OBTAININING THE CONSENT.

Since the dawn of mankind there have been 3 different types of major totems for witch doctors, holy men, shamans, and seers.  The lion, the bull and the eagle.  We are here today to talk about the lion especially as a symbol for predatory cats.  People who study the human brain know that there are different types of intelligences.  One of the more common analogies for describing different but highly functional mentalities is the comparison of the fox and the hedge hog.  Richard Feynman was referred to as the fox because his way of understanding things that nobody else could, and wrapping his mind around them.  Einstein was referred to as the hedgehog because of the way he could humbly edit his consideration set and burrow his way towards the answer and ferret it out.  Richard Feynman was the guy that figured out how the space shuttle Columbia blew up and he had to explain it very slowly and deliberately to other people who didn’t believe him and couldn’t understand his brilliance and the fact that he was correct.

Image

The reason that I bring this up is that for shamans being philosophers the way they hold a question in their mind and follow its sent was symbolized by the ancient super-genii as a stalking cat.  A predatory cat stalking it’s prey.  This symbolism was universal and one particular cult is marked by their use of the predatory cat skin.

Priests
Even though priests, it did not mean serving their god would mean just approaching and proclaiming themselves as priests. They washed themselves several times per day to eliminate off all the body hair to be untainted enough to approach the god. Because of being cleansed to approach the god, they did not wear leather sandals or wool clothing, as it was considered unclean. When serving the god Amun, they would wear leopard skin robes.
In many cults, also known as churches, they did not wear a wig as all men and women wore.

In his book The Chicken Kabbalah, Lon mentions having a rabbinical experience in his cat skin skirt demonstrating the continued theme from Egypt into Occult Judaism, but this metaphor goes back even further all the way to India and Shaivism.  If you are familiar with my theory on the Origins of the True Religion, you will see how consistent this theme is and how many questions it answers.

The first task of Hercules whose name itself is a deviation of Horus the sun god, was to kill the Nemean Lion.  Having done so he wore the skin, in a way becoming the sun.  Remember that in astrology, the lion represents the sun.  This is also were the soul enters the zodiac, from the ancient perspective the soul split itself into male and female before incarnating in the zodiac.  The sun and moon are the only two planets that don’t repeat as rulers of two houses (in the original 7 planet horoscope).  The 12 labors of Hercules are the sun moving through each house and understanding the trials in that house as the soul (sol,sun) perfects itself and learns its lessons through struggle, trial and tribulation.  The Rosicrucian initiation process uses Hercules as a model to this day.

Samson, in the Bible is actually Hercules as well who is also shown above killing a lion.  Samson is also named after the sun with a word that derives from Persian.

Shamash (Akkadian Šamaš “Sun”), was a native Mesopotamian deity and the sun god in the AkkadianAssyrian and Babylonian pantheons. Shamash was the god of justice in Babylonia and Assyria, corresponding to Sumerian Utu. Akkadian šamaš is cognate to Syriac ܫܡܫܐ šemšaor šimšu Hebrew שֶׁמֶשׁ šemeš and Arabic شمس šams. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shamash

In Egyptian mythologySeshat (also spelled SafkhetSesatSeshetSesheta, and Seshata) was the Ancient Egyptian goddess of wisdomknowledge, andwriting. She was seen as a scribe and record keeper, and her name means she who scrivens (i.e. she who is the scribe), and is credited with inventing writing. She also became identified as the goddess of architectureastronomyastrologybuildingmathematics, and surveying. These are all professions that relied upon expertise in her skills. She is identified as Safekh-Aubi in some late texts.[6]  ~wikiepdia

In Taoism the Yin and Yang symbols are associated with the tigress and the dragon.  The tigress represents earthly power or success, while the Dragon represents the masculine and heavenly element.  Remember that the symbol for the Ankh is a metaphor for heaven and earth, the male and female symbols juxtaposed, and Thelema, the religion started by Aleister Crowley is the western version of Taoism from an original authentic living guru lineage.  It is the philosophical connection that rationalizes the philosophical systems from all over the world.  In the Osho Zen tarot Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh demonstrates his understanding of the same principle, remember he was also known as the Rock and Roll Guru.

Well I think that is all the dots I am going to connect for you today.  I hope you have enjoyed that little romp through time and across continents and have arrived at a deeper understanding.  Oh yeah, if you want a little more I have included a story that explains how the leopard got its spots from the ancient perspective, not factual but allegorical.

The Lie takes many deceptive forms,
always posing as the Truth. 


But Anubis was able, by means of his keen canine senses, to sniff out Seth in whatever form he takes. 

 

Once, Seth assumed the form of a leopard and blended into the desert sand so well that Horus was unable to spot him from the air as he circled high in the sky upon his falcon wings, using his sharp falcon eyes to scan the Earth.

But Anubis sniffed out Seth and decided to brand him so that everyone would be able to see him. Anubis trotted over to the banks of the Nile and dunked his paws in rich black Nile mud. Then he lept onto the leopard and left indelible muddy paw prints all over Seth’s hide.

That is how the leopard got its spots, according to the Ancient Egyptians.

The highest caste of Egyptian magician/priests wore leopard skins to symbolize the never-ending struggle between the Truth and the Lie. The Lie persists. Seth the Deceiver was not killed by Anubis. But Anubis revealed Seth for the Lie that he is.
And that is why the Priests at the Great Temple of Antinoopolis may have worn leopard skins — to demonstrate that it is possible to see through the Lie to uncover the Truth that lies underneath.

Transgressive Sacrality and the Puritannical Mindset.

CUNT_104e29_335901

Being a westerner you are unaware that you have a western mind.  Human beings have a normative bias.  That means that we think what is normal for us is good, but not just good for us, good for everybody.  You have been given a western mind and you don’t know it, you think that you are your mind.  As such you are unaware that you have an elitist, feminist, liberal bias, that you have been indoctrinated with and exposed to all of your life.  You have been bombarded with images and narrative from that perspective.  Since the Pilgrims landed on Plymouth rock they have been preaching this perspective on life, and that perspective is antithetical to yoga, I will explain why, but first this.  This is what is normal for other. people, enjoy.

What+_fe0adb0824bdfdb631c1e5481d5e8b9b

Yoga is about non duality, it is about not thinking that you are better or superior, it is about seeing everything as onel and being in relationship with reality.  Puritans presuppose their moral authority, they presuppose their right to judge others and to judge what is good for others which is weird, because one of the tenets of this country is to be free from that manner of meddling stupidity.  3rd person parties poking their fat noses into our business and giving us their unsolicited opinions.  Externalizing your issues into the world so that you can get offended, and then you get on your high horse and start pecker slapping people with your judgments.

So here is the thing for all of you pseudo spiritualist fruit balls.  Do you think that you know how a guru or spiritual master should comport himself?  What he should say and not say?  What words he should use?  I call that the Messiah Paradox, if you know what a spiritual master should be doing then you don’t really need a spiritual teacher do you?  Save yourself.

The fact of the matter is that the practice of Transgressive Sacrality was created to cure exactly your psychosis, your feelings that you are better than everybody because you hold your farts in and wash your hands up to your eyebrows before you eat your raw, vegan, organic, kale chips and wash it down with your wheat grass, spirulina, freshly squozen apple drink.  Transgressive sacrality is breaking taboos, as a meditation, offending social norms so that you don’t feel that you are better than everybody else by virtue of your refusing to acknowledge that you are an animal as well, that you shit and piss like everybody else.

Buddhism[edit]

In Buddhism “transcendence”, by definition, belongs to the mortal beings of the formless realms of existence. However, although such beings are at ‘the peak’ of Samsara, Buddhism considers the development of transcendence to be both temporary and a spiritual cul-de-sac, which therefore does not eventuate a permanent cessation of Samsara. This assertion was a primary differentiator from the other Sramana teachers during Gautama Buddha‘s own training and development.[5]

Alternatively, in the various forms of Buddhism — Theravada, Mahayana (especially Pure Land and Zen) and Vajrayana — the notion of transcendence sometimes includes a soteriological application. Except for Pure Land and Vajrayana, the role played by transcendent beings is minimal and at most a temporary expedient. However some Buddhists believe that Nirvana is an eternal, transcendental state beyond name and form, so for these Buddhists, Nirvana is the main concept of transcendence. The more usual interpretation of Nirvana in Buddhism is that it is a cessation – a permanent absence of something (namely suffering), and therefore it is not in any way a state which could be considered transcendent.

Primordial enlightenment and the dharma are sometimes portrayed as transcendent, since they can surpass all samsaric obstructions.

You are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem.  Watch the video below of Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh and his treatise on the word fuck.  A lot of you “spiritualists” know that you are not doing anything wrong because you aren’t doing ANYTHING.  YOU AREN’T SAYING ANYTHING.  YOU ARE BLENDING IN, AND YOU HAVE NO LIGHT TO KICK.  You are what Socrates referred to as “pretenders to wisdom.”  You wouldn’t know the truth if it slapped you in the face with it’s big hairy nuts.  God will not have his will done by cowards and instead of waking people up you are lulling them to sleep.  Your enlightenment isn’t light at all, it is a grey kind of darkness, a cloudy, smoggy, sticky white light.  Concealed, closeted, white washed graves.

Revelation 3

14“To the angel of the church in Laodicea write:

These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation. 15I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! 16So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to vomit you out of my mouth.

Get over yourselves and your stupid judgments, stop trying to do better than real.  Life isn’t all pleasantries and faerie farts, sometimes things suck.  You have to take the good with the bad.  Be content with reality.  You aren’t bringing people to heaven you are making life hell now.

Island of Jewels: Sikala Shiva and Nishkala Shiva

Island of Jewels-The Garden of Eden and the Connection between Judeo Christian, Islam and Hindu Religions

Lynn Marie Katerina: It is exciting to look at this image knowing that that’s me.  Could you please explain the symbolism in this iconographic piece of artwork that you made?

Joxua: Sure.  I first came across this image when I was reading a book on symbolism and mythology in Indian art by Heinrich Zimmer and edited by Joseph Campbell posthumously seeing as how Zimmer never published his work in his lifetime.

This piece basically symbolizes the human mind, conscious, subconscious, unconscious and the human psyche; Id, ego and superego.  Shiva’s consort is perched on top of his prone body which is in Shivasana, the corpse pose which is lying on top of a dead body, which is also Shiva.

This is a metaphor for the alchemical marriage; the Judeo-Christian concept of the Garden of Eden came from this original metaphor.  Shakti’s skirt conceals the connection between the sacred masculine and the sacred feminine.  The secret fact is that they are conjoined mid-coitus just as Samantabhadra, the highest form of Buddha is engaged in sex as he represents creative intelligence.  In order to create you need masculine intelligence and feminine intelligence without balance of yin and yang there is no creation.

Shakti represents the conscious mind, Shiva, the subconscious mind projected on the sub strand of Shiva’s corpse, the unconscious mind.  Transversely, Shiva’s corpse represents super ego or the absence of the presence of self, the Buddhist concept of no-self, or selflessness or non-ego.  Shiva represents ego or the enlightened sense of self, the philosopher king who must be latent in the world of action as he is too wise and too understanding he is barred from acting on the world.  Must submit to the children so that they can learn from their own mistakes and taught by their own actions.  Shakti represents the id, the unenlightened sense of self that becomes aware of itself by playing in the universe as leela, acting on the universe and then observing the karma created.

Nishkala Shiva is the name of Shiva’s corpse.  It represents the moon when it is empty after it wanes and before it has begun to wax.  It is given a value of zero.  It represents the empty space of the universe, the canvas on which we paint ourselves, and the playground in which we grow up.  It is the diamond light, the nothingness out of which everythingness was created by separating emptiness into light and matter.  Light which is matter moving quickly and matter which is light moving slowly creates a spectrum in which we could express ourselves and move closer to the light or the darkness to yangness or yin-ness, consciousness or unconsciousness.

Sakala Shiva is given the value of sixteen, which represents the number of days the moon needs to wax and become full; perfectly reflecting the light of the sun.  He represents a person that has learned everything they can from the realm of human life; a fully accomplished homo sapiens, a wizard king, Zorba the Buddha, to borrow a phrase from Bhagwan Shri Rajneesh.

Lynn Marie Katerina: Wow that is really fascinating.  I am not sure I really understand the connection between Shaivism, Judaism, Christianity and Islam though.  Could you help me connect them a little better?

Joxua: Sure, it’s just that the three major religions all have the Garden of Eden in their mythology and that alchemical marriage icon comes from the Island of Jewels metaphor.  So it deals with proper relationship which is what religion tries to be.  Shiva and Shakti, Jehovah and Schechinah, Jove and Juno, the prime mover unmoved and the agency through which he works his will in the universe through the Holy Spirit.  It is through this meditation that we seek to unveil the proper relationship, equality under reason that shows us how we are connected to each other and the universe.  What is the proper relationship between the waves and the sea and even the vast expanse of outer space?

The Garden of Eden is the island of jewels which is the alchemical marriage, which is the highest form of Buddha, Samatrabadra.  We haven’t mastered the third eye chakra or reached the 6th heaven until both of the people in the relationship understand the uncorrupted form of perfect relationship and only two perfect God-like people could master or contemplate this relationship.  Imagine if you will, a king and queen who have been married for ten thousand years, they conceive each other as one-self.  They cannot and will not leave this old familiar relationship because nobody could replace their mate.  Nobody could understand them as well or bring as much into the relationship without the relationship both of their lives are diminished but at the same time they each have their own consorts and concubines, their interests and hobbies and their pet projects, both of them want the other to be free and happy and nothing can come between them.  The happiness of the other is my happiness and vice versa.  Both parties are freed and supported by the relationship, not punished and hindered.  It is an enriched relationship, the opposite of what people conceive of relationship today.  It is only through this relationship that one can re-enter the Garden of Eden.  You can’t enter alone.  You have to make like a baby and head in, go in, gnosis, genesis, genius, Janus, jinani, gyne, yoni.  Genesis means to go in, exodus means to be expelled.  It was the failure to stay in relationship that caused the fall from grace and the expulsion from the Garden of Eden.  Also of interest, the first thing you do when going into the world is inhale and the last thing you do upon dying is exhale.  It is a form of the in-breaths and out-breaths of Brahma.  The first two books of the Judeo-Christian scriptures also, God breathed into Adam the breath of life.  God inspired Adam so we are in God.  In theos, enthusiasm, enthusiastic, and God is in us.  Inspire, spirit, and prana.

Lynn Marie Katerina: This is excellent and marvelous rundown and interpretation of the history of mankind and the origins of the original sin.  Joxua says it’s like putting humpty dumpty back together again.  The failure in relationship has caused the expulsion in the Garden of Eden.  Mistakes in the past need to be corrected and we all must consider and learn from history and say to ourselves…where did we go wrong and what can we do to do better;  Self introspection and contemplation is needed as opposed to unconsciousness and running on auto pilot.  Joxua speaks about “Epanasundesi “or staying in relationship and that’s an interesting topic.  The past was failure and we must take care to not repeat the mistakes of the past; we must do better this time.  It’s about getting it right this time around.  Thank you Joxua, this contains a lot of wonderful information.

LON MILO DUQUETTE, JAGAD SADGURU

Image

A little about my friend, I read his book a long time ago, I am sure that it influenced me and I am sure that I probably swaggerjack his style.  He writes in plain approachable, irreverent, speech, like the parr hesia of the ancient Greek philosophers.  I was contemplating calling him the F-bomb Guru but I will just think of him as that in my own little mind.

Here is a picture of him with my business partner, Lynn Marie Le.

Strange story, one of my first paintings was of a cabbalist secret, it was of an ahimsa.  I knew when I painted it that I would end up giving it to a rabbi, but I had no idea that rabbi would be one Rabbi Lamed Ben Clifford.

564620_141011412707498_1149441917_n

His writing style gave me permission to be myself.  In a world where people have categories like garbage cans where it can’t be philosophy, and comedy and occult, it has to fit nicely in it’s little box and have all of the corners sanded off so dumb little babies don’t gouge their eyes out on it, he gave me the courage to say, “fuck it!”  I just gotta be me.

untitled

Baba Lon like me was demonized and ostracized because of being not normal.  Maybe a little difficult to understand.  Possessed of a creative intelligence, and an understanding that makes everything pregnant with meaning.  He is a Jnana guru, a yogi of philosophy.  We will leave humility to those who are endowed by god to be humble.  Hoist with his own petard he might be but it is commensurate with his stature.  I will defend his honor as i would my own, perhaps more vigorously so as I am privy to guilty knowledge about my own doings.  I remember Osho, Bhagwan Shri Rajneesh, once said,  “there are two ways people will make you irrelevant, they will crucify you or make you a god.”  I might add, they will turn you into the devil, but I guess that is a kind of god too.

He is part of an authentic Western Guru lineage, in line with Aleister Crowley.  I have felt for a long time that Jesus was trying to bring the guru tradition to the west and that he succeeded, not so much through the Roman Catholic Church but through Mary Magdalene.  After Jesus died she went to France.  9 french men went to the holy land, dug under Solomon’s temple into a secret chamber they knew was there and whatever they came back with made the Church grant them sovereignty over themselves and the sanction of the religious authority.  They started the first knightly order and the Freemasons are of their descendants.   Lon, as part of his heritage, and possibly unbeknownst to him, has knowledge of kundalini yoga, he is a bit of a tantric siddha, and he is also a taoist.  Crowley merged all of these religious concepts in his teachings with kabbalah.

Spoiler alert, I heard this is going to be the cover of his next book.

546173_420031774723901_638129601_n

Let any of his antagonists show that they can shake a spear as well as he.  I heard that he killed two Vatican Assassin Ninja Warlords with a flick of his middle finger.  They were so distraught that he thought poorly of them that they committed suicide, one of the guys chopped off his own head and then his mates.  I heard that he taught Charlie Sheen how to talk awesome.  The most interesting man in the world was modeled after him, and Chuck Norris wears a beard because of him.

Why did the Chicken Qabbalist cross the abyss?  I don’t know where to go from here.  Should I go with the pure rhyme and say, “for a kiss”  or should I say “for a wish”?  Or should I forget about rhyming altogether and say, “to be one with everything”?  I don’t know.  These are the jokes folks!  I will be here until the end.
