weeeeeeeiiii…. some new postcards fresh off the press! i like tangible things and the smell of newly pressed paper. i know– save the trees right?– but if you think about it maybe the digital age is destroying the environment and our brains much more aye!
Dedication on inside cover of a book I picked up today. Cheese =D
I was looking for another Dandicat and found this one. The dedication belongs to a used copy of Mexico Mystique- The Coming Sixth World of Consciousness. This a moment in synchronicity as I found out the book was a basis for the speculation of the end of the long count calendar of the Maya. Waters indicates a 2011 end to the cycle but still in December. The text breaks down a lot of anthropological speculation and sheds light on the ends and beginnings of previous worlds (Atlantis, Lemuria, etc)
“Man’s evolution thus far had followed the line of descent of spirit into matter. … He had fully developed a physical body from soft androgynous form, with a division of sexes. But he was not wholly corporeal, being receptive to cosmic influences and spiritual guidance. Now he was ready to begin the ascent of spirit out of matter in full self-consciousness.” -page 107 on the Laws of Manu and the Myth of Atlantis
yes, we do conference calls that last until 11pm. occupy wall street, peak oil, monsanto– environmental causes of cancer– you know the usual stuff we have to wrap our heads around and detangle ourselves from.
we are in the midst of history.. making history… and shaping history.
maybe a movement is a lot like falling in love– that moment where you’ve either built a foundation to fall into OR that moment THAT JUST HAPPENS. when you are swept away by the synergy of it all. to sustain a movement is the question and to actually create and vision what happens after the protests is the harder and bigger question. falling in love is falling in love but a relationship is much more than that.
we have double time in the groundwork — our task is to continue toppling imperialism BUT we need to start planning/creating what our relations will look like– that is: our relationship to land, our relationship to money, our relationship to property, our relationship to industry, our relationship to the commons. AND SOME OF THOSE RELATIONSHIPS WE NEED TO START BREAKING UP WITH. that is the first step.
