Polygamy Island

Yin and Yang are the primordial opposites.  Out of unity was born diversity.
Polarity arises out of unity.  These poles are positive and negative, light and dark, masculine and feminine.  Right and Left, and even right and wrong arise out of these primordial opposites.
Yin is dark, considered feminine and yielding, night, the moon.  Yang is light, bright, strong fast and masculine.  Yin is the ocean, yang is the thunderbolt.  Within the heart of Yin lies the seed of Yang, and within the heart of Yang lies the seed of Yin.  Within these seeds of Yin and Yang is another set of polarities, primordial opposites.  Within Yin lie the primordial opposites of positive and negative, and within Yang lie the primordial opposites with different names - within Yang, the polarities are labeled "Right and Wrong".

"Right" and "Wrong" are linguistic, left-brained, masculine concepts.  Indeed, conceptualization is a left-brained, masculine attribute.  The feminine perceives in terms of polarities, but not in terms of judgments. Judgment is a yang attribute, a masculine concept.  This is the heart of the mystery between the sexes.
Lets take a thought experiment.  Imagine an Island.  We'll call it Polygamy Island.  Polygamy Island is matriarchal.  Women are in charge.  This makes men insecure.  Men are inherently insecure anyway, because women by nature can last indefinitely in bed, while men by nature last a finite amount of time before needing to recuperate.  In this most important relationship, women demonstrate superiority, which breeds a sense of inferiority in men, who then compensate with demonstrations of domination.  This is the story of human civilization up until now.  Then, after that humiliating experience, men have to watch women reproduce, which is a total mystery.  So men are by nature insecure and threatened in their relationship with women.  All over the world, men demonstrate different techniques by which they attempt to compensate for this insecurity.  WW I and WWII and indeed, WWIII can all be considered World Wars of Aggression, which basically means they were World Wars of Masculine Insecurity.  Our attempt at civilization remains stuck in this quagmire.

So the Land of Damaged Goods, which was a colony developed in order to faciliate healing between the sexes, instituted an experiment. This experiment resulted in Polygamy Island.
On Polygamy Island, women are in charge and men are responsible for putting up with the chaos.  Rather than dominating women and the earth with preemptive aggression which puts feelings of insecurity at bay, men simply tolerate being humiliated, and used up and spit out.  Women cheat and flake out and pretty much do what they want, and a mild, dysfunctional, emotionally guarded anarchy reigns, where fickle women rule and nobody trusts anyone.  Rather than dominating the scene, putting in some rules, maintaining order, demanding monogamy and punishing adultery, men refuse the temptation to dominate and possess women.  Rather, they cultivate an absence of judgment and simply tolerate the abuse.  In the meantime, they get laid now and then, and put up with women lasting indefinitely in bed while they helplessly climax, fatigue, and recuperate.  Women tease them, and go looking elsewhere.

Out in the world, jealousy, insecurity, and a deep rage which hides the hurt of not being good enough has thrown the planet out of balance into a firestorm of impotent desire, but on Polygamy Island, men are encouraged to practice observing all these unpleasant sensations that arise in the body without reacting to them.  Jealousy and insecurity and anger do arise, but the men do not act out these emotions.  They observe them in meditation, and let them go as new sensations arise.  Misbehaving women are allowed to misbehave, without the judgment being applied that they are misbehaving.  And because men are not defensive, but rather open and yielding to the truth of what is, they lose the hardness of yang, and start a little less war, and find a little softness of yin within them, and make a little more peace, which actually looks like making a lot more love.  The worst of them sleep around a lot, and the best of them are brahmachari, and out of this brahmachari, this true renunciation of desire and its fruits, is born real tantra.  From this place of emptiness and goallessness, the paradoxical equanimity which observes impartially both samsara and nirvana, nonattached to both emptiness and form, the non judging mind, which merely is... this paradoxical Way, this Tao, this Dhamma, is the art of balance between opposites, the primodial pair of yin and yang, a deeply paradoxical interweaving of masculine and feminine energies, which is recapitulated in opposing pranic and panic patterns of the pelvic floor.  Equanimity is moola bandha, and so forth.  Meaning vajroli mudra, if you get my meaning.  The cultivation of equanimity is genuinely and profoundly psycho-somatic, meaning it has both psychological and physiological components.  The physiological component of equanimity (uphekkhshanam), a mind free of desire, in men is vajroli mudra, deep in the pelvic floor.  And so through this ego-dissolving process of deep and humiliating surrender, which men have refused to do for thousands of years, the men on Polygamy Island are learning the path of true leadership, which is semen retention and celibacy - brahmachari.

Moola Bandha.

The Buddha once told a rich family that he wouldn't touch her hot daughter with his big toe.  Not that there was anything wrong with her, she was hot and everything, he was just firmly brahmachari, and the loss of his ojas, or bindu, or semen, would affect his concentration.  Nikola Tesla loved the company of women but he, too, was brahmachari, and claimed that not having sex was what made him so brilliant.  He wasn't making it up - brahmachari improves focus.  And one of the beautiful side effects of this willingness to die to the desires of the flesh is that in desiring nothing, we are now safe to approach and damaged women learn to trust us.  And we are now operating not out of lust, which is reptilian, but compassion, which is angelic.

An age of dharma is an age of righteousness, but how does righteous evolve out of unrighteousness?  Judgment and condemnation can never create a world of peace and prosperity.  The divine masculine is required to practice - not judgment - but forgiveness, and compassion.  The divine masculine is required to love what he fears, and love what he hates, and forgive himself for fearing and hating.  And through this act of radical self-acceptance the divine masculine finds balance with the divine feminine, which leads as a natural consequence to a balance between the sexes, a healing between the concept of Father God and the truth of Mother Earth.  Judgment can be defined as a loss of equanimity, and equanimity can be defined as an absence of judgment.

The great secret religious conservatives never want to talk about is that in the end the unrighteous are forgiven.  The wicked are forgiven in the end, and this is the only path which leads to the kingdom of heaven on earth, a world of peace and prosperity.  As long as we do not forgive we cannot atone, which is how polarities find unity, balance, at-one-ment.  This is the great secret of the Freemasonic Bankers:  We'll be forgiven in the end, so milk it for all it's worth...

Because the divine masculine must discern and judge, in order to know the dharma, the divine masculine must also forgive, in order to maintain balance between yin and yang and release judgment.  This is the meaning of Christ's crucifixion.

On Polygamy Island, and everywhere else in the world, as men learn to forgive themselves and forgive women without lusting after them, they find real peace of mind, real equanimity, and maybe even real vajroli mudra, for without judgment there is no goal, which makes us all better lovers.  And in this place of total loss and surrender, the loss of their precious superiority or even necessity, men find real peace and harmony with themselves and so begins an era of healthy relationship with women, and the Great Wars of Insecurity come to an end, and the Golden Age begins.

Damn this is pretty far out there.  hell I might be dead wrong.  shit.

Buddha Dharma

I must first share with you the Dharma, the Sacred Law.  This exact Law was taught by the Buddha over 2500 years ago.

This Law is the Law of Impermanence.

Nothing endures forever. Change is the essential nature of reality.  Change is the only constant.  Stars come and go.  Galaxies arise and pass away.  Planets exist for a brief moment of infinity, and fade back into nothingness. Subatomic particles arise and pass away trillions of times a second.  Empires rise and fall.  Truth itself is not a fixed constant, but an evolving process.  And we are all going to die.

Materialism, then, does not and cannot lead to spiritual fulfillment, for the material world is left behind when we die.

The Lords of Materialism want you to believe otherwise.  America’s popular business mantra is, 'He who dies with the most toys, wins."  The unstated, unconscious goal of materialistic life is to acquire more and more possessions, and to devote all of our resources to taking 'ownership' of more and more of our physical reality, which we then leave behind when we die.  If it sounds like an absurd strategy for happiness, it is.  Its like trying to sunbathe on a submarine.

We loathe impermanence.  We want to keep our youth, we want to keep our lovers, we want to keep our wealth, we want to keep the good things and hang on to the good times in life, but we can’t, because change is inherent in all phenomena.  Ownership is just a way of pretending like we get to keep the things we want.  Possession is a neurotic control trip, which always ends badly.

This leads to the first corollary of the Law of Impermanence - the Law of Imperfection.  Existence isn't perfect.  A moment of it may be, or an evening of it, or possibly even years of it may be perfect, but nothing lasts forever.  And when the good times end, it hurts.  This pain is unavoidable.  We cannot exist in a perfect reality that always changes, for change inevitably leads to loss.  This is not a flaw in existence - it is merely a characteristic of existence which the Dark Lords would keep a secret from you, so they can sell you a pill to make suffering disappear.  Relatives, no such pill will ever be invented.  We cannot avoid the pain of existence - we must learn to embrace it.  Suffering is inevitable, but struggling is totally unnecessary.

The Dark Lords of Materialism, then, attempt to poison our mindstream with the delusion that life is meant to be perfect, and any imperfection is a flaw they can fix - for a fee.  They also choose to poison our mindstream with the delusion that if we can't own it, then it doesn't have value.  And so, the world of nature and living beings is enslaved to the greatest possible extent, and servants of mammon attempt to own all they can, whether it be ancient redwood groves or children or the ancestral land of indigenous people or the genetic makeup of our food, or the money printing process, or sovereign nations...  And what cannot be owned is destroyed, be they whales, or forests, or indigenous culture, or differing opinions, or the ocean, or women's bodies... the Lords of Materialism desire nothing less than complete ownership of life itself, to be hoarded, stored in a vault, controlled, and enslaved forever.

Needless to say, this is not the will of God.  This is in violation of Creator's Sacred Law.  Jesus said, “Do not store for yourselves treasure upon Earth, where moths and rust corrupt and thieves break in and steal.  But store up for yourselves treasure in Heaven, where moths and rust do not corrupt and thieves do not break in and steal.  For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”

The Law of Impermanence tells us that our body is constantly changing, and our thoughts are constantly changing, and that ultimately we will leave our bodies behind, and all our wealth, and all our possessions, and everything we ever thought we 'owned' and even everything we ever thought we ‘were’.  This means that a fulfilling life must have different priorities than those which the Dark Lords would instill in us - he who dies with the most toys didn't spend their time wisely.  The Dark Lords desire to dominate life, while the Dharma guides us to celebrate and serve life. We are not the masters here - we are the servants.

And here we find the second corollary of the Law of Impermanence - the Law of Selflessness.

From a spiritual perspective, the aforementioned military industrial complex manufacturing global war represents our own ego.  The ego desires to control and dominate, as compensation for its inherent inferiority - for the ego is a fictional character.  Conflict is thus a requisite for the survival of the personality, as it were.  As personalities, then, we are choosing familiar, dead-end, ego-reinforcing behavior patterns that deny our deep need to connect, relate, and merge.  Our ego is manufacturing enemies for us to fear, in order for it to survive unscathed.

Relatives, nothing survives unscathed.  Merging with what lies beyond ego demands a personality fluid enough to disintegrate and be reborn.  A personality which cannot let go of its own existence in order to merge and be reborn is trapped in a prison of its own making.  The ego must learn the art of composting itself in the field of itself.  The personality must learn to see the rigid, inner voice of the ego as a prison, and escape it by denying its power and moving out of the head and into the body.  We escape the prison of the inherently selfish ego with egoless, and thus selfless, service.

  Service is the path of transcending the selfish ego.  In order to escape the prison of the mind, we must learn to serve, especially when the ego sees no benefit.  Rational self-interest may make good capitalists, but capitalism makes a world enslaved by mammon.  The Law of Selfless Service requires us to transcend the rational ego by paying homage to the irrational wisdom of the heart.

 According to the Dharma, then, the most fulfilling life is the life spent in service - a life spent in love.  Not attachment, for attachment is the desire for ownership, the desire for permanence.  Love is not attachment - love is letting go.  When we are able to let go of our desire for ownership and control, and let go of our desire for permanence, then we are able to love.  This love manifests as action - a life of love is a life of service.  According to the Dharma, then, he who dies with the most service wins.

We don't take our possessions with us when we die:  The Lords of Materialism desperately need us to ignore this obvious fact.  What we take with us is our karma - our thoughts, our speech, and our actions.  Love manifests in these three realms, as does fear and greed.  A life spent acquiring possessions gives us the heavy karma of fear and greed, which feeds the Dark Lords and gives them tremendous power in this world.   A life spent in service gives us the liberating karma of love and forgiveness, which aligns us with the Dharma and the will of God.  Karma, too, is in the Bible:  “As ye sew, so shall ye reap.”

The reign of the Dark Lords of Materialism is thus fueled by the fear of death.  Servants of mammon fear death, for they are heavily invested in, and thus trapped by, materialism, and are poorly prepared for what lies beyond the material world.

The reign of the Creator and the Sacred Law is fueled by love, and the fearless embrace of change, even the transformation that takes place at death, for the Dharma teaches us that we are ultimately nonphysical beings having a brief physical experience - an experience worth celebrating, but not an experience worth getting attached to.

This, relatives, is the Dharma.  In Pali, the language of the Buddha, "anicca" means impermanence, "dukkha" means imperfection, or suffering, and "anatta" means selflessness, or no-self.  These terms are the bedrock of the Buddha's teaching - the Buddha Dharma.
