Shudder Shudder

Prologue – Nietzsche:

How, if some day or night a demon were to sneak after you into your loneliest loneliness and say to you, ‘This life as you live it and have lived it, you will live once more and innumerable times’…” 1

Enter
Lear:

Lear as Manimal—frail, failing old man, wounded animal, berserker storm-walking archetype—having reached the primal point forming fusion between human pathos and the body’s animal origin and end.  A single sound repeating from the gaping maw: “Howl, howl, howl, howl!” 2

Across

time, across the turgid Atlantic, Ginsberg will take up the cry, as protest against the antiseptic and mutating coffin confinement of capitalistic modernity.

Looking

into the mirror of imagination, or mirror of the demon’s prediction of eternal recurrence, I see the face of a Diaspora Jew, chanting madly as resistance to madness, merging into the face of a fabled, fallen king of mists, in death throes pulled back down again into the crushing blackhole of absurdity and the inhuman menace of time.

Ginsberg: “I

saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked, dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn looking for an angry fix, angelheaded hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection to the starry dynamo in the machinery of night, who poverty and tatters and hollow-eyed and high sat up smoking in the supernatural darkness of cold-water flats across the tops of cities… who bared their brains to Heaven under the El and saw Mohammedan angels staggering

on tenement roofs”…  3

Ahh, Dear Sir, when I share Shudder with a friend, his reply was that the only way to take care of the Earth's manmade and mythical demons is for Christ and His disciples to have Picked up the Sword, and led a growing mob into a murderous rage against the Ruling and cultural foes.
These are the things I proposed to him instead: That even when given a Choice to pick up a Sword He refused to do so, and Taught His disciples to do the same, because Christ is the Sword.

The Cross driven into the Earth is the Sword (Cross) in the Stone (Earth).
Melding and Blending Earth Energies - Magic (UnKnown, but Knowable Science, Alchemical and Particle Wisdoms) with Divine (Heavenly) Cosmological Energies - Magic (UnKnown, but Knowable Science, Alchemical and Particle Wisdoms) to Heal the Earth. To Heal Humankind.

Whether Christ’s Body Transfigured or not - His Ideas and Healing Actions and Words Transfigured, Transformed and Transmutated the World One Human Heart, Mind, Body and Soul at a Time.

Christ’s Ideas and Healing Words and Actions are still Rippling through the Sands and Cosmological and Molecular Strands of Time and Human Energies, Actions and Non-Actions (which are within themselves energetically active whether statically or dynamically so).

Ideas have tremendous Energetic Power and Resonance. Especially Ideas of Creative, Nurturing and Sustaining Illumination, Elucidation and Universal Love.

The Roman 1%ers Saw these Potentialities in Christ’s Ideological Energies and sought to humiliate and kill It by and killing Christ’s Body.

The Jewish 1%ers Saw these Potentialities and sought to humiliate and kill It by killing Christ’s Body.

The Rebels who sought emancipation, fairness, justice and equality from their Oppressive and Abusive Ruling Classes wanted Christ to be their King (with all of the cyclical entrapping dysfunctions that go along with that modality of Thinking), and when Christ refused, were so angered and inflamed over not having their Needs met, and Fears quelled, and Ambitions belayed, that they, too, sought to avenge themselves by seeking to humiliate and kill It by participating in the killing of Christ’s Body.

Christ Saw all of this. He Understood its in’s and out’s, why’s and wherefore’s. And still Chose to Sacrifice His Body in order to Become the Healing Sword (Cross) in the Stone (Earth) of Universal Love and Mental and Spiritual Courage - in order to Transfigure, Transmutate and Transform the World.

The Old Self - the Old World Views must deteriorate and die in order for the New World Views to Live - to Breathe - to Become Nurturing and Sustaining Manna for all of Humankind

Christ overcame His bestial Manimal and Pathos - his lurking demons by refusing to Transfigure, Transform and Transmutate into a Violent, Destructive, Avaricious, Careless, Self-Serving and Murderous Leader of Men and Women - of the World.

The Ideas of Each and Every HumanBeings Divinity, Healthy and Balanced Sense of Self and Others, Self and Other Justice, Self and other Fairness, Self and Other Equality, Self and Other’s Sense of Liberty and Freedom, and Pursuit of Happiness dwelling within, and being expressed every moment from without are Ageless - are Indomitable, and Resonate and Vibrate within every cell of our Beings.

Christ’s Energies challenge all of Us to Learn to Love and Understand One Another, and Learn to Love and Understand Ourselves.

When those Earthly and Divine Cosmological Alchemies and Molecular Activities take shape and density in Place, Space and Time, then the Beast and Pathos within Each and Every One of Us Becomes the Sword in the Stone - the Cross in the Earth - the Healer of the Earth and Humankind.

Thank you for gathering the verses that you did to convey your Ideas, because it led to my friend and I exploring some Ideas of our own that might have otherwise gone unexplored.
