From Wikipedia – Kali :
“Kālī (Sanskrit: काळी, IPA: [kɑːliː]), also known as Kālikā (Sanskrit: काळिका), is the Hindu goddess associated with empowerment, shakti. The name Kali comes from kāla, which means black, time, death, lord of death, Shiva. Since Shiva is called Kāla—the eternal time—Kālī, his consort, also means “Time” or “Death” (as in time has come). Hence, Kāli is the Goddess of Time and Change.
Although sometimes presented as dark and violent, her earliest incarnation as a figure of annihilator of evil forces still has some influence. Various Shakta Hindu cosmologies, as well as Shākta Tantric beliefs, worship her as the ultimate reality or Brahman. She is also revered as Bhavatārini (literally “redeemer of the universe”). Comparatively recent devotional movements largely conceive Kāli as a benevolent mother goddess.”
In previous posts, I commented on the phrase ‘Do you believe in The Juggler’ from the Pink Floyd ‘Darkside’ video .
And from Wikipedia – The Magician Tarot card :
“The Magician, The Magus, or The Juggler is the first trump or Major Arcana card in most traditional Tarot decks. It is used in game playing as well as in divination. In divination it is considered by some to succeed The Fool card, often numbered 0.”
And “The Al-Chemical Wedding” or ‘The Al-Chemical Re-action’ .
Last week, I re-read the John Fowles novel “The Magus” by coincidence, synchronicity or whatever . ‘The Magus’ tells the tale of a young Englishman, Nicholas d’Urfe who takes up a job as a schoolmaster on a Greek island, Phraxos where he meets a rich and mysterious character called Conchis .
Conchis embroils Nicholas in ever increasing bizarre ‘masques’, such as a fake Nazi execution and a false ritual involving men and women in strange costumes similar to the Black Mass scene from ‘Eyes Wide Shut’, as well as a the fake suicide of his girlfriend . Click Wikipedia for a fuller review . At the end, it is revealed all the games are intended to give Nicholas a deeper insight into himself and ‘Life’ .
As regular readers will know, I am very suspicious of the veracity of recent news stories such as Boston, Woolwich and the Syrian chemical attack and believe that we may be caught up in a similar sort of game as described in ‘The Magus’, but without the good intention of Conchis . We are manipulated to react in certain ways to these events, so that agendas can be fulfilled .
But ultimately, I think the aim is ‘spiritual’ rather than money and power . Behind all the ‘flickering pixels’ that we see in the media, is a force that is just as strong and inflexible in its spiritual beliefs as the most extreme Christian, Moslem, Jewish, etc fundamentalist, which is endeavouring to bring in not only a change in the way the world is governed but a new spiritual perspective and maybe it’s always been so . It believes in Might is Right, the love of Death, the supremacy of the physical over the spiritual and hatred of true Love .
Some people say to understand the world, you need to ‘Follow the Money’ . I say ‘Follow the God’ ( or Goddess ) .
