Top-Down To Bottom-Up and Systemic: We Are What We've Been Waiting For!

Bottom-Up and systemic power structures speak to the true power structures on our planet and universe. On earth, it speaks to the meaning of human and non-humans alike in relationship to the whole. Bottom-up/systemic is Nature's process. A lion is only King of the Jungle until a microscopic bug brings him down.

I combine bottom up and systemic viewpoints because all creatures, from the trees, grasses, lowly amoeba and the great queen of the jungle, the lioness, are important players to the ecology of the planet. In the sense that Christ was born, lived and died for the world, then so does the amoeba and lioness.

Thus is your purpose on this planet also. You are here for everything and body.

All potentials lie within you in an unmanifest state. Potentials are akin to eggs in a woman's ovaries. When an external and seminal event occurs, something new arises from within. This Unmanifest within you means no external god creates the universe. Rather, the universe / Nature creates Herself in the same fashion that our bodies form en utero and evolve/devolve as we live our lives on this planet. We develop and devolve via the wisdom of our own bodies. Yes, devolution is the result of Nature's Wisdom. If you are not working for the sake of all, then you simply go extinct. There are no external hands forming and commanding us. Yet, a deeper power than our ego formed us. The ego is simply unable to grasp this power and upon tasting that infinite power externalizes it as an "up there in Heaven" god.

This "King of the Pyramid" is a lie that is several centuries old. There is "no other" operating as King. Power lies within you and the leggy spider walking across the window in front of me.

Spider and human are more verb than noun. The noun, referring to you as a woman or man reveals cosmic process, i.e., the Verb. Indeed, one of the names for God was Spider Grandmother in Native American tribes. Again, this is the web weaving of all of Nature, including our en utero development within our mother's womb. Spider Grandmother weaves us from center to periphery. Is Nature a spider? "No!" The creature we refer to as spider simply mirrors Nature's process.

What we call God is about process and not so much a god having a male penis and / or female vagina. God is more verb than noun. Indeed, the noun (e.g., you and me) expresses the "Verb" which is made flesh." Process becomes product.

This verb function includes our sexuality, which is reflective of cosmic process. Thus the Sun shines his rays upon Mother Earth and a seed becomes a flower. Intercourse is the Way! Denial and shame of sexuality is akin to shoving Nature's face into the dirt. Why would any God make these pleasurable organs and then say, "don't you touch! I'll zap you into Hell." As a Gnostic Christian quirked, "what kind of god is that?" I answer what kind of being are we?

Unfortunately, we have turned the dance of opposites into a war as reflected in the insane notion of the "battle of the sexes." Would you be here without your mothers and fathers desire to unite? Isn't it true their sexual organs are opposites that ultimately reflect a mirror image in the same sense left hand becomes right in your mirror? Instead of battling our opposition, what if we saw ourselves in our opposition? As Jesus Christ put it, "love your enemy as yourself." This is simply Natural Law. If the man were to manifest today, many Christians would be the first ones to hang him on a cross. "Many shall come in my name," the man says. "And I shall not know them." Being sprinkled with water by priest, preacher or guru doesn't cut it. Your mindset and behavior does.
