In today's world, we fall to the feet of Pope, Preacher, Guru, Philosophers, Politicians, Kings, Queens, Movie Stars and so on and so on. Ad infinitum! Thus we externalize our Gods and Goddesses. Do we believe in Goddess? Or do we believe in God? What is our theology, our philosophy?
Yet, a Hindu once said, "You ask me what and where is Brahmin? I tell you straight up: Brahmin is never able to be seen because He is the Seer."
Thus in the design of our bodies, our eyes metaphorically cannot see themselves unless they peer into a mirror. What is that mirror if not the world we live in? Interesting coincidence (resonance? Synchronicity?) between the terms "eye" and "I"!
Brahmin is defined as Self while the Judaic-Christian-Muslim God is originally referred to as I AM. And what is Mother Nature if not the essence of the cosmos, i.e., the Self? Doesn't Nature mean Essence as in the line "Meryl Ann Butler's (an editor on Oped) is that of a genius?" (Ok, don't want to leave Rob Kall out of this, nor do I wish to negate Tsara Shelton and Daniel Geery).
Yes, I am begging for a pay raise in this volunteer job!
So, is the craziness of our top-down culture simply ways in which Gods and Goddesses see themselves? Is this simply an experience for us to go through so we can move into Rob Kall's notion of developing a bottom-up power structure?
Psychiatrist Carl Jung speaks to this when he states that the Hebrew God has no sense of Himself. This is why we are here. We are God making sense of His-Her Self.
God's being I AM (Yahweh) means She cannot see Herself. Why? It is because She is what's looking (in the verb sense, eyes are vaginal in that they absorb light in the conception of an image). Thus are we all, trees, birds, bees, oceans, planets and Rob Kall's seeking to know who "I AM!"
