In Mimicry of Faust & Rumpelstiltskin [new poem]

Faustian Soul-Selling

Dead-hearted, sex-frustrated human counterfeits
(pretended males whose flabby breasts protrude like
shabby tassels on a stripper’s cheapened tartlet tits,
and female impersonators sporting ersatz ‘beards’)
litter the earth like confetti on a bridegroom’s coffin;
ever willing to lick the boots and arses of the nabobs
who imagine they have power given from above.
Every one of them is whirling in a vortex spun by lies,
rejecting counsel and collaboration of the wise,
and void of any semblance of the truth… or love.

The Nazi Reich was seeded here by such as these;
when almost every one espoused the cause or Read the rest of this entry »

CALLING FOR WISDOM: The Meaning of 666 and the Mark of the Beast

Posted on Updated on

666

In all my spiritual writings, I have sought to show how the primary purpose of this creation is to demonstrate the superiority and omnipotence of God on the one hand, and the foolishness and limitations of His human creatures on the other. Recognising this is what differentiates the disciples of Christ from the typical narcissistic person who scoffs at Him. This little essay about the number 666 and the “mark of the beast” brings that differentiation into even sharper focus. For if you want a symbol of the failed achievements of humanity, it is certainly summed up in the number 666, as we will see. It is well worth going into this in some depth, because even many who are unfamiliar with Christ or the Bible have heard about this number as having something to do with darkness, evil or Satan, through having seen a number of horror movies in which this symbol is liberally used. It has even been suggested recently that the numerology of the Coronavirus adds up to 666! So, in view of the topicality, the question I am seeking to answer here is this: What is the most likely root meaning of this number 666 and the “mark of the beast” that is intimately associated with it”?

THIS TRANSITORY WORLD: A Two-Part Response to Viral Vexation

Part 1: Gilding the Thorns: Making the Best Out of What Seems “Bad”

THIS FIRST PART IS GOING TO BE SOME STREAM OF CONSCIOUSNESS SMUDGINGS about the way my mind is working at the moment regarding things which seem to be going viral. So, if you are interested, please just go with the flow along with me. You are welcome. This first part of the piece is a kind of journey inwards; whereas the second part below will be more of an outward expedition. (Though, in a sense, inwards-outwards — it’s all the same to me! 😉).

I woke up with the title, “Gilding the Thorns”, in my head (as often happens — either that or a single line of a verse or refrain). So that is my starting point in this first part. What will come underneath these words is whatever comes out. Right now, I don’t really know where this will go, apart from wanting to cover any thorns with gold — not because the thorns have no intrinsic value (after all, even with gold they will still prick the skin!), or to deny that thorns exist, but simply because thorns look more lovely when gilded than not gilded.

Creatively, I am on some kind of a full-pelt roll at the moment; which is not surprising during a time of uncertainty and unrest (one could also say dis-ease). This is an immensely positive element if one is wondering about how one will cope with being somewhat socially isolated. Get creative! Frankly, such isolation is normally how I live. It’s always such a relief to get back “home” from the supermarket or wherever! So, I am Read the rest of this entry »

Israel: The Making of a Terrorist Nation-State

BELOW IS A 2009 MAILING that I sent out to my news and views email list (since discontinued) of some 1500 worldwide subscribers. I just rediscovered it on an old external hard drive and reckon it has as much relevance today as it did then. So I publish it here unchanged.

Dear Friends:

Having read my earlier article which overturned the false claim that modern Israel is a land promised by God for Jewish people today, a subscriber asked me recently if Israel therefore has any right to exist as a nation-state. It is high time for a little update on my thoughts about this matter, so this is what I want to address here. (I would respectfully ask that you look at all the weblinks too as they contain much explanatory and supporting information).

Previously, I have taken a kind of semi-neutral stance on this specific subject of a nation’s right to exist, and I haven’t really gone into it in very much detail. One of the reasons for this was because in my original lengthy article about Israel, I was providing specifically a theological examination of the whole aspect of Israel and did not want to allow any Read the rest of this entry »

I am the poem that no one wants to read
the bird-shit on the washing on the line
the friend with whom your parents disagreed
the nips and tucks performed by Frankenstein

I am the wet dream junkie’s wishful thought
the stuff in which no human wants to tread Read the rest of this entry »
