These are Nietzsche’s three metamorphoses of the spirit; camel, lion, and child.

 

The Camel: Takes the heavy weight of all burdens; the load-bearing spirit.  For all things heavy does the camel kneel down and take upon its back.  The camel asks, “What is the heaviest thing, that I may bear it, and rejoice in my strength”.  There are countless burdens that the camel may bear; the burden of suffering, the pursuit of knowledge and truth, the pursuit of all good things for themselves with no reward or recognition, the willful playing of the “fool” in order to gain wisdom, holding yourself to a higher standard for its own sake, taking on the death of all things you thought you knew, relinquishing all pride and ignorance for the sake of being better off for it,

 

 

dancing star

are we all mad

chaos and illusion

nine-to-five

breaking our necks

to build that pyramid

a great project

for God knows what

God knows why

fed mere scraps

slaves get nothing

the all seeing eye

at the apex

the controllers

the reptilians

the government

the aliens

Area 51

Illuminati

hidden in plain sight

behold, a pale horse

Big Brother

watching us always

our every move

what we do

even in secret

privacy

it has lost meaning

none to be found

this world

has lost meaning

no longer values

exposed

deep secrets

in front of the world

cover up

on display

a web containing

guilty by association

the FBI

the CIA

the narrative

the media

pretty faces

one can laugh

making you believe

lying to your face

advertisements

agendas

dictating always

feeding you

always wanting more

never satisfied

consumers

food for sheep

food for thought

just enough

to keep coming back

the individual

discounted

disenfranchised

one only cares

for profit

corporations

controlling

for-profit

prisons

locking up its citizens

billionares

pushing the agenda

New World Order

poisoning our water

turning frogs gay

that much is true

the machine

the man

the controllers

left and right

liar or outright liar

the puppets

playing their game

the puppet masters

behind the scenes

behind the curtains

that veil of illusion

controlling our thoughts

so that what we think

isn’t even ours

no ownership

no accountability

authority

demanding respect

demanding obedience

giving nothing in return

obey or die

disobey and be free

but you must run always

out of reach

out of touch

you are called crazy

for believing

the unbelievable truth

that we are led

like lambs to slaughter

 

The Other

beware of “those people”

they are dangerous

they are a different breed

they are not like us

lets form a group

lets take a stand

they are taking our land

They do not belong here

I for one see

that they are not like me

I want them out of existence

they are not worthy

of being

of sharing the same Earth

the God that shines on me

also views them as not worthy

my mind separates, categorizes,

and forms distinctions

I don’t know them

yet I’m spinning illusory webs

in their direction

I take that as real

but in all reality

they are just like me

if I took the time

to get to know them

but hold on right there

that takes work

I’m a lazy man

plain as day

for all to see

possibly

even proud of my ignorance

a dangerous game

but why worry

it takes introspection

possibly changing

so why bother

it is much easier

to look at them

as

The Other

 

 

So, first of all, what is a hippy?  Most people have a shallow understanding of the hippie.  All can agree that they are certainly a strange creature; an oddity perhaps.  I will be focusing on their philosophy and values, as I believe this is most important aspect of them; it is the root of their identities.  The hippy “is a member of the counterculture of the 1960s, originally a youth movement that began in the United States during the mid-1960s and spread to other countries around the world.” (“Hippy,” n.d.)

 

Counterculture is wholly anti-establishment.  There was a strong rejection of society, cultural norms, organized religion, and middle-class values.  The hippies sought to create their own culture in droves; it was nothing short of a cultural revolution. 

 

 

What does it mean to be spiritually awake?  First of all, it is a choice; I would say it is an equal choice of both your soul and your conscious decision making.  Red pill or Blue pill?  To wake up is a double-edged sword.  Would you choose to wake up, to see reality as it is, even if it meant seeing the stark truth of life, or even subject yourself to great suffering?  When you wake up you let go.  You let go of everything you think you were, for it is just a story, not your real identity.  Dark night of the soul perhaps.  You start looking at the world through spiritual eyes; you begin to feel things more deeply; everything touches your soul.  You may experience hypersensitivity and deep emotions. 

 

Ubermensch; the pinnacle, the ultimate human being; “Beyond-Man”, “Superman”, “Overman”.   Nietzsche was the one to introduce this concept.  The Ubermensch is the one who is strong enough to master the whole spectrum of human potential.  It is a full human being.  It is the goal of humanity; it is what we are working toward.  Self-mastery is eternal; it applied then, in the whole of the past, and it applies now.  The ability of man to “go beyond”, is a hidden power.  We have evolved from animal to man, and now to beyond-human.  Look at art, and see that we have always had the ability to go beyond.  We are “grasping” (often collectively) that which cannot really be grasped.  Although we cannot speak of the truth or convey it, as it is beyond reason,

 

 

Silence

The way of not speaking

it stands before you plainly

it is begging for your attention

silently of course

It came before, and so must you return

silence in its exacting fullness

all the many mute tongues

of the sages

all who surely know

so wise yet not saying, anything

nothing at all

speaking is one step away, after another

after another

stop right now

and retrace your steps

to find that source

that sacred place

before lips move

where non-utterance is saying

all that needs to be said

come from that place

where all words have their origin

where words will align

with that great wisdom

you will then speak

from the heart and with the soul

empathy,

 

what would you do

if you could do anything

if you could go anywhere

if you could do

whatever you wanted?

where would you go?

how would you spend

your time and money?

who would you see?

what kind of person

would you be?

where would you travel?

what would you see?

if money was no object

where would you be?

would you chill on the beach?

would you sail at sea?

what kind of car would you drive?

what kind of house would you have?

would you be happy?

would it make your life easier?

 

Let go of control.  Control is an illusion.  Completely give it up.  Things will happen to you in this life, loved ones may die, you may fall on hard times, all things that you cannot control.  Letting go is an art form, it is the way of the Buddha.  Letting things carry themselves out in their own time and place is key.  You must master the art of letting go.  Change what you can, and let go of everything else.  Your power comes not from controlling, but from letting go.  Being a “control freak” is a pathological disorder.  Yes, you are the master of your own life, but in order to truly master it, you must let the chips fall where they may.  Thinking that you can serve outcomes to your own needs is an illusion. 

 

What is the nature of the incarnation?  Let’s investigate following the concept of duality of the opposites, and paradox.  The incarnation is most likely a god-child; a couple examples being Horus and Krishna.  He would have equally male and female characteristics.  All-knowing, yet a naive child.  Blissfully unaware, yet knowing all things; very child-like.  He would have no preferences.  He would not be homosexual but He would see the beauty in both male and female persons; and of course the divine nature in all beings.  His incarnation would be a “coming out to play”, and the universe itself would be His playing also; divine play, divine sport, gods at play.  Naive, yet infinite wisdom.  He would have no beliefs, as all enlightened persons have absolutely none.  “The child”, Nietzsche says,
