THE ETERNAL LAWS OF NATURE
Yesterday, today and tomorrow, time remains the same. The laws of nature are eternal. They cannot be jailed, lobbied, contested or changed.
Our current laws of Democracy and ideas of progress are simple human ideas that can be broken by the iron first of nature in an instant. This modern world order is a grain of sand in the ferocious winds of nature and time.
Progress is not a religion nor a death pact. Time is not a line, it is a cycle. Civilizations cycle through phases of strength and decay. Every civilization has its golden age and an age of demise. We do not have a duty to progress, we have a duty to live on this planet in a sane and spiritual way: a way that respects the biological foundations of life on the planet.
ENTER OSIRIS AND ISIS
Much like in the mythological story of Isis and Osiris, we exist in a time ruled by corrupt leaders and decaying morals. Isis was tasked with finding the pieces of Osiris’s body that were strewn across the Earth by his evil brother Set. She searched the Earth for the pieces of this God, pieced them together and thusly they were married. Osiris and Isis became righteous rulers over the land – king and queen – and all would be well with the Earth once again. Osiris was a merciful judge of the dead associated with Kings. As Osiris rose from the dead, kings would inherit eternal life through the process of initiative magic. Osiris was also associated with the cycles of the Earth.
Isis’s name in turn, literally means throne. She was an important representation of the Pharaoh’s power: mother and wife, patron of nature and magic. It is through the myth of Isis and Osiris that the throne of power marries the force of nature in a cycle of life and death.
So what does this Egyptian story have to do with the modern world?
Isis is not only a Goddess, but she is the prophet who brings back the divine authority to save the world. In bringing back this divine authority, she must travel the world in order to piece it together.
And that is what we must do.
THE GODDESS RECLAIMS HER THRONE
In the story of Osiris and Isis, Set destroyed Osiris because he selfishly wanted the throne of power all to himself. In a similar fashion, when Christians took power over Rome in the 4th century, they severed the wisdom of the ancient world into pieces and tried to impose a single minded ideology onto the world. As you know from the history books, this resulted in Dark Age of Ignorance, crusades, inquisitions and witch hunts. (We’re not saying that all Christians are bad, we’re just saying that the version of Christianity that took power had little tolerance for different points of view – even dissenting Christians were killed.)
When the Christians came to power, they attempted to kick the Goddess out of her temple and impose a Male only divinity on the world. Goddesses ruled alongside of Gods in the Ancient World (much like Osiris and Isis), but the Christian God was not interested in a co-pilot.
In ancient times, various Goddesses were tied to ideas about fertility, life and the earth. Even today we instinctively refer to nature as a woman: “mother nature.” Severing mankind from The Feminine Divine has also resulted in a distance between mankind and our connection to nature as a natural life-force. We came to see nature as something that needed to be dominated and destroyed, rather than a mother to respect and love.
Today, we are now living in an environmental disaster where human beings are destroying a majority of the natural life on the planet.
Yet there is hope. Much like when Isis pieced together the old ways and kicked Set out of her throne, the Divine Feminine is making a come back in various ways around the world. People are beginning to doubt the conventional ideas about religion that we’ve followed for the last 2,000 years and are now looking to the ancient ways for guidance. As the Goddess reasserts her spiritual power, we can hopefully find ways to reconnect to the Earth before its too late.
FINDING ANSWERS ACROSS CULTURES AND TIME
If we are to propose an alternative political ideology for the world, we must look at successful empires that endured, empires that existed across the world throughout its history. One empire and people alone do not have the answers for the problems that vex the entire planet. The answer to the puzzle lies strewn across the waters of time, seeped in the wealth of the great civilizations: The Egyptians, The Mesopotamians, The Babylonians, The Greeks, The Romans, The Chinese, The Hindus, The Golden Age of Islam, etc.
These are empires that lasted for centuries. They may have not been perfect. They had their fair share of atrocities: war, slavery, poverty, etc. Yet the atrocities these empires may have committed do not hold a candle to the holocaust of life perpetrated by the modern, Democratic world order: the greatest extinction of human, animal and plant life seen since the dinosaurs were killed 250 million years ago.
WHAT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF A JUST SYSTEM?
NOT TO DESTROY THE BIOLOGICAL FOUNDATIONS OF LIFE FOR PROFIT
There will always be a variety of disputes about what system works best. However, I’m here to argue that the ideal system has a responsibility to not destroy life on the planet in the name of progress. In the 21st century there will be brutal wars over the most basic of resources: clean water, soil and food.
The current system is a brief aberration in time and won’t survive very long. We need to think creatively about alternative systems. In this blog we will look at successful civilizations throughout history and try to emulate their successes once again. We will do not what is ideal, but what is necessary.
