Lent for the 1st time.

Sometime after lent had commenced I decided that maybe I ought to try it, not that I was aware of when it started exactly, as the local church is somewhat neglected by the church authorities and don’t even have a service every Sunday; but that’s ok, the most important thing is that the church hasn’t been closed and is still standing strong, open at all times, after all these years. (It’s Norman and an absolute beauty).

Lent was interesting as it functions like a habit-breaker, I was not entirely successful but at least I gave it a go and tried my best. The biblical reason for this strange “celebration” is that Jesus was wandering around in the desert for a while and withstood temptation from the Devil 😮

I personally have not reached this section of the Bible as I’m still working my way through the Old Testament; I’ve largely been a protestant-in-name-only, (or secular protestant) my entire life, gradually turning to Christianity over the last few years. So lent was pretty new to me (just like attending Holy Communion), but a valuable lesson nonetheless.

The Church of England is struggling greatly; they don’t have enough funds to look after England’s numerous and beautiful places of worship, and most people who I’ve run into complain about dwindling numbers when it comes to attendance.

It is rather sad since England is an Anglican country and so far I have to say that I’ve really enjoyed whatever services I’ve come to; I also heard complaints about general low attendance over in Norway last time I was there. There also seem to be many women who take it upon themselves to keep the faith alive by becoming priests.

The Old Testament is proving a very interesting read as it illustrates how various tribes interact with one another; how everyone travels to Israel to shower the Jews with gifts and praise when they are strong and under tough leadership, while everyone tries to take advantage, looting and conquering the Jews once they are seen as weak! The work is repetitive, as I’ve also written in the very looooong review that I’m writing about it; it is hard to read due to the fact that it was not written to be a page turner. Names of entire Jewish families are listed over and over and over again, which certainly makes for tiresome reading. I therefore decided to check out “The Lion Encyclopaedia of Jesus.,” just to get a more “in-depth” introduction to Jesus; in comparison to what little I already knew.

If you feel like helping persecuted Christians then please read this: “Persecuted Christians around the World.” If you live in England then maybe this will be of interest: “The Vulnerability of the Poor & Our Shared Cultural Heritage.” Here are some interesting petitions to check out: Petitions To Sign & Share.

Ancient Greek Myths – The Universe, The Gods, And Mortals told by Jean-Pierre Vernant.

Those who’ve experienced the elementary education offered in Southern European countries can consider themselves lucky, as you really get an introduction to the “Western Civilisation” perspective, rather than the post-modern version void of “the classics.” I remember how we had several volumes of history books for each school year, thick books as well, that offered way more than what my peers and relatives were presented with up North. I recall that the Italian public school system was four years ahead the Norwegian one which is quite something to think about. Even though that was the case there was little that was given away when it came to WW2 and these type of things, probably because of Italy’s role, I can only assume.

If you find yourself in a similar situation to mine, there will be a need for a brush up at one point or the other, which is precisely why I decided to check out the Greek Myths once again.

Some of it made me remember, some of it was new. It was an interesting read and a reminder of how people find new ways to express the same ideas and concepts. The idea of a death ray, for example, is nothing new, as “War of The Worlds” echoes the evil Cyclops who can grill you with their eye, the same can be said of Maleficent from  “The Sleeping Beauty” , which brings to mind the story of the Golden Apple, thrown into the midst of a party by a disgruntled entity who was not invited, (indirectly or directly depending on how you want to look at it,) starting or laying the foundation for the Trojan War.

Jean-Pierre Vernant is an extremely gifted writer, the preface was stellar and the main text was impossible to put down. I would highly recommend this work!

It is especially interesting to notice how women are being portrayed. There is this popular myth out there that Christianity was created to oppress women in particular, like a vicious plot, since women were empowered under paganism. However, it certainly doesn’t come across as such, when reading how “sexist” the Greek Myths are/were; with the first woman being practically blamed for everything, much like Eve in Christianity. I have not read the Norse Myths yet, but female characters are apparently severely sidelined with male entities of war taking centre stage. This is of course very interesting when thinking about modern narratives…..I’m assuming that our current age of egalitarianism is unprecedented; at least that is the impression I have as of now; but I might come across something that will change my mind in the future.

Here are some cool quotes from the work; as always: I choose to highlight what I consider to be of interest, it is always best to read the original text in its entirety….

How women are described in Greek Mythology.

“Now, the stories show this Pandora, like her whole genos-the whole “race” of feminine women who descended from her – with a particular characteristic: She is always dissatisfied, demanding, self-indulgent. She is never content with what there is; she wants to be sated, surfeited.”

“…Pandora has a voracious appetite, she never stops eating, she must always be sitting at the table … But any household with a woman in it will develop that insatiable voracious hunger. In this sense the situation is similar to what occurs in beehives …”

“Similarly in the human households, on one hand there are the men, who sweat over the fields, break their backs digging the furrows, tend the grain and then gather it; and on the other hand, inside the houses sit the women who – like the drones –   swallow up the harvest.”

“Not only does she swallow up and exhaust all the resources, but that is precisely a woman’s main reason for seducing a man: What she’s after is the barn … she sings the young bachelor her big seduction aria because she actually has her eye on the grain stores. And every man – like Epimetheus before them, all agog, transfixed by her looks – every man falls captive.”

“Indeed, woman, the wife, is a fire burning up her husband constantly, day after day, desiccating him and making him old before his time.”

“If a man marries, his life will pretty certainly be hell, unless he happens on a very good wife, which is extremely rare. Conjugal life is thus and inferno – misery after misery. On the other hand, if a man does not marry, his life could be a happy one: He would have his fill of everything, he would never lack for anything – but at his death, who will get his accumulated wealth? It will be scattered, into the hands of relatives for whom he has no particular affection. If he marries it is a catastrophe, and if he doesn’t, it’s another kind of catastrophe. Woman is two different things at once: She is the paunch, the belly devouring everything her husband laboriously gathered at the cost of his effort, his toil, his fatigue; but that belly is also the only one that can produce the thing that extends a man’s life – a child.”

The greatest threat to men:

“Throughout the long journey to follow, at every moment, behind all Odysseus’s adventures with his companions, this forgetting – the erasure of any memory of the homeland, any desire to return to it – forgetting is the constant danger, the evil.”

How the mob is described in Greek Mythology.

“Men make too much racket. There is the ethereal, silent realm where the gods withdraw to think and gaze upon one another, and then there are these humans, jumping about and agitating, shouting themselves hoarse with quarreling. So from the gods’ standpoint, a good war every now and then solves the problem: back to peace and quiet.”

“… the gods shift over to men the responsibility for decisions they shy from, the same way they sent them the misfortunes or baleful fates they wanted to avoid for themselves.”

How the Greeks identified gender….

“He sees some fifty girls there; Achilles does not stand out among them. Odysseus opens his sack and displays cloth and needlework, clips and jewels, and forty-nine of the girls crowd around to exclaim over his trinkets. But one of them hangs back, indifferent.

Odysseus then takes out a dagger, and that pretty little girl lunges for it. Outside the walls a battle trumpet blares: panic in the women’s quarters, the forty-nine girls dart away with their bits of frippery, while just one – with a dagger in hand – heads for the marching music.

Odysseus has unmasked Achilles just as Nestor unmasked Odysseus – and Achilles in turn is ready to go to war.”

“Identitarians”  according to the Greeks:

” … Those who embodied the unconditional attachment to the unchanging, who proclaimed the need to preserve traditional values against whatever is other from themselves, against whatever questions them or forces them to see themselves differently – these “identitarians,” the Greek citizens confident of their superiority – are the very ones who topple over into absolute otherness, into horror, into the monstrous.”

Just like the Vikings described men of the East as effeminate, well so did the Greeks.

” … Pentheus harbours the idea that a monarch’s role is to uphold a hierarchical system in which men take their proper place, women stay at home, foreigners are not let in, and Asia – the East – is considered to be populated by effeminate folk in the habit of obeying a tyrant’s orders, whereas Greece is populated by free men.”

How feminists are described in the Greek Myths…

” His mother snatches up her son’s severed head, sticks it on the tip of a thyrsus, and marches about in delight with the thing, which in her delirium she imagines to be the head of a young lion or bull impaled on the end of her pike. … she boasts of having been hunting with the men and like a man, of showing herself to be even better at hunting than they. With that mob of demented, blood-spattered women, Agave goes over to Dionysus, who is still garbed as a priest.”

How Warriors are described by the Greeks:

” Cadmus does as instructed … sows the dragon’s teeth. Hardly has he finished than from each tooth springs up a warrior – already full grown and armed in military gear, with helmet, shield, sword, lance, leg guards, and breastplate. Once up and out of the ground, they eye one another with contempt, snarl, and hurl challenges the way men do who live for slaughter, warfare, and belligerent violence – soldiers through and through. Cadmus understands that they could easily turn on him.”

When offered immortality Odysseus turns it down, since he values his family way more, not even his encounter with Achilles can change his mind:

“Odysseus had visited the land of the dead; there among the spectres he had heard Achilles say how dreadful it is to be dead, how this phantom with no life or consciousness that a person becomes – this nameless shade – is the very worst future a man can imagine. And now, after his long journey and all his ordeals, Calypso offers him the chance to be immortal and to stay forever young, no longer to fear death and old age.”

“What Achilles says in The Odyssey is the opposite of what The Iliad proclaimed: that Achilles had the choice between a short, glorious life and a long life without glory, and he had never hesitated or doubted for a moment: He would choose a glorious life and heroic death in the flower of youth, because the glory of a short life ending in a fine death was worth far more than anything else. Now he says exactly the opposite: Once a man dies, given the choice he would rather be a poor louse-ridden peasant alive in the most benighted backwater of Greece than great Achilles in the world of the dead.”

What Odysseus sees when he visits death:

“They form a vague mass of beings who used to be individual persons but can no longer be distinguished. From that mass swarming past him there rises a terrifying, unidentified sound. They have no name, they do not speak; it is chaotic noise.”

The island of the sun god.

“The place does belong to the sun, that all-seeing eye.”

Sirens at work:

“But meanwhile, even as these beauties are revealing the Truth with a capital T … their island is ringed by a mass of corpses, flesh decomposing in the hot sun on the beach. These are the bodies of all the men who succumbed to the Sirens’ call and died. … What they say to Odysseus is in a sense what will be said of him when he no longer exists, when he will have crossed the frontier between the world of light and that of shadows, …”

The spiritual is real I say, I’ve known it for a while! You don’t need a church to feel God’s presence! Even though I’m not done reading it I’ll insert some cool quotes from The Holy Bible, which is not a read for the faint hearted.

And as the LORD took delight in doing you good and multiplying you, so the LORD will take delight in bringing ruin upon you and destroying you; and you shall be plucked off the land which you are entering to take possession of it.” “In the morning you shall say, ‘Would it were evening!’ and at the evening you shall say, ‘Would it were morning!’ because of the dread which your heart shall fear, and the sights which your eyes shall see.”

If there is among you a poor man, one of your brethren, in any of your towns within your land which the Lord your God gives you, you shall not harden your heart or shut your hand against your poor brother, but you shall open your hand to him, and lend him sufficiently for his need, whatever it may be.”

And if your brother becomes poor, and cannot maintain himself with you, you shall maintain him; as a stranger and a sojourner he shall live with you. Take no interest from him or increase, but fear your God; that your brother may live beside you.”

Know therefore, that the Lord your God is not giving you this good land to posses because of your righteousness; for  you are a stubborn people.”

If any one kills a person, the murderer shall be put to death on the evidence of witnesses; but no person shall be put to death on the testimony of one witness.”

“You shall not make any cuttings in you flesh on account of the dead or tattoo any marks upon you: I am the Lord.”

“All your children will be taught by the Lord, and great will be their peace.” Isaiah 54:13

I’m slightly opposed to selective quoting, and it is of course of importance to point out that there might be several different interpretations of celestial phenomena when looking at various creation myths. The Christian God is described as The God, but this doesn’t nullify the existence of other deities as other gods are mentioned, etc; As a “secular Christian,” even  as an individual who’s always been questioning life, the world, the universe, etc; there is obviously a great deal I do not know, (especially as someone raised in a post-modern West) about our Holy Texts, what came before Christianity (Norwegians were converted by the sword,) and also our founding documents/constitutions in the West, clearly stating and outlining our principles, values and “mission.” It is a good idea to look into these things as a citizen, so as to know what our various Nations and people stand for; if not we will not know what is being transformed and how. We will not know what others fought for, or what they sought to defend.

Then again it can probably be argued that it is all a mirage; but even if that is the case it is our reality.

What a read! 😍😍😍 Check out some of these Hancock quotes: "The eye of Heaven penetrates the darkest chambers of the soul, traces the leading clue through all the labyrinths which your industrious folly has devised; and you, however you may have screened yourselves from human eyes, must be arraigned, must lift your hands, red with the blood of those whose death you have procured, at the tremendous bar of God!" 🗽 "Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed, by the soft arts of luxury and effeminacy, into the pit digged for your destruction." 🗽 "But I thank God that America abounds in men who are superior to all temptation, whom nothing can divert from a steady pursuit of the interest of their country, who are at once its ornament and its safeguard." 🗽 #johnhancock #theconstitution #americanconstitution #usa #theunitedstatesofamerica #America #MAGA #thefoundingfathers #theconstitutionoftheunitedstatesofamerica #eagle #americaneagle #merica #bookstagram #books #reading 🗽

If you feel like writing a letter to persecuted Christians in North Korea, suppressed by the evils of communism you can do so here. I’ve read whatever information that has been sent to me from the “Open Doors” organisation, and it is truly bizarre to read about a leader who places himself as a God above his people. You have to bow down to statues of Kim Il-sung and Kim Jong-il, and make sure that your wall-pictures of these mortal communist men are nice and clean looking. Incredible. If you want to receive information about persecuted Christians such as the ignored Rohingya Christians, sign up for “Open Doors,” it is also possible to help out financially of course.

Here are some intriguing articles to check out:

My last list of Digital Articles to Read – as I’ve moved on to Myths & Theology.

There is always plenty out there to read, whether “acoustic reading” or the more modern sort. There is no doubt in my mind what I prefer.

These type of digital articles that I’m linking to all share that in common that they display the struggles and conflicts of men, and the troubles that we face in our everyday lives around the world. I’ve decided to re-focus on creation myths etc; as I had gathered a nice collection of books, before I got distracted I guess. It takes a very long time to read the Holy Bible for example, especially because I always end up taking notes and googling certain sections to see what interpretations that can be found. I now also have in my hand The Prose Edda from Snorri Sturluson courtesy of my brother. The introduction includes this interesting passage:

I know that I hung, on the wind-swept tree

all nine nights, with spear was I wounded

and given to Odin, myself to me,

on that tree which no one knows

from which roots it grows.

Bread I was not given, no drink from the horn,

downwards I glared; up I pulled the runes,

screaming I took them, from there I fell back again.

It’s all very intriguing. Anyway here is a little reading list of interesting material found within our digital landscape…

After realising that my online reading habits could be tracked by others anyway, and that passwords are futile. I realised that I could might as well share and write about what I was reading. I’ve been pretty open about my negative experiences with tech, little did I know though how easy it is to lose control of gadgets,. I also wonder how you can report this type of incidents as the crime of hacking seems rather murky. It gets so personal when you carry your phone with you everywhere, and whatnot. So it certainly feels intrusive. Yet the side-effects of our digital relationships are nothing short of alarming: Read This.

Interesting; I don’t think I ever saw any warning labels on my Nokia phones when I was little? Thank goodness that I didn’t have any devices for some years, yet we are all exposed to wifi. How healthy is that I wonder? I don’t know if others have noticed but people’s attention span seems to be dead. Cellphone usage is the smoking of our age. Read This.

Not to forget the data-mining/collection happening through friendly, free to join social media sites. Everything from dating sites, blogging sites, games, apps; it can all be used to map and analyse human behaviour and thinking. It is the ultimate spy tool for people who cannot read your mind, but wish they could. It’s a trap; it sucks that it has to be used to promote products and  whatever business one might have. Considering the effects devices have on memories, focus and the cancer risk, in addition to the data-collection, do you really want to spend that much time online? Nope I didn’t think so. Stay off the internet unless you have to be on it for work. 1984

An article  in Norwegian about sexual harassment towards working women. The MeToo Campaign Spreads.

This is an extremely interesting article in Norwegian addressing the issue faced by the Norwegian police as they try to uphold the law of the country in areas heavily populated by immigrant youths, etc; They are worked against by post-modern academics, a lot of them female funny enough, who seem to blame the police for the criminal behaviour of the gangs. This desire to frame the authorities as racist, while portraying the foreign perpetrators as victims, create a hopeless culture, where anarchy is allowed free rein. I also heard not that long ago that the police officially came out and apologised or explained that they had lied about crime statistics. I actually saw the press conference/video of this, but will have to find the link/article a bit later. It is of great interest though. There are people who try to keep  something together that is obviously not meant to be; and as they press on the fragmentation increases. And speaking of which….

….the post-modern social conditioning or narrative is failing among the young. Incredibly enough my sister, who has literally been an almost Anti-Christ-like character at her school due to her questioning of our current politically correct orthodoxies, can now report that nationalism, patriotism and traditionalism is becoming visible among her fellow school pupils, as the current doctrine pushed by post-modern hippie teachers is becoming increasingly rejected as youngsters have had enough. The latest shock statement came from young people stating that if people hate England then they should get the hell out. Really? But I thought self-hate and alternative identity movements was the new way forward? The change has happened relatively quickly too, the young people are turning around. This is actually good news, if you like England and want the country to have a solid future….

I’m starting to feel that my predictions have been too apocalyptic. Only social constructs that align with human nature can function in the long run, unless you are to change human nature, and even if you try there will be those who reject it. Small things can make a thinking soul happy; and the rejection of post-modernism and the death of the delusional ideas preached by its teachers make me fly; just like the face of disbelief of some of those who were reading the results of the Brexit vote. Complete disbelief that the vote had turned out completely different from what they thought.

That is the danger of unbalanced perceptions of reality; shock ensues when election results come in, because people have started to believe a skewed, fake, narrative. And the self-proclaimed keepers of truth are the ones the most shocked as they’ve started to believe their own creation of delusion. I have faith in the future, because of the young, and because the current status quo lacks depth, meaning and strength. It cannot give man, what man needs, and because of this it will not last long. We will return to old truths that have been there since times of old in one way or another.

This is an article in Norwegian about political intolerance in Norway directed towards conservative voters and the hate and ridicule that openly anti-reds have to endure. It is quite an astonishing read and actually resonates with this entry of mine: US Defence Secretary Mattis, President Trump, Feminism, Intolerance & Reading Lists.

Norwegians should be ashamed of themselves since our immigration minister is as strict as she is. Of course the author of this article does not want to acknowledge the cultural risk of taking in people from alien cultures and compares the refugees of today to those from WW2. There are major ethnic differences between Europeans, I think our former conflicts bear witness to that. Why people like this guy would choose to look away from that fact and condemn those who try to protect their national identity and integrity is interesting. That type of belief can only be valid if one believes that our national identities are nothing but divisive illusions, and that our disagreements can be melted away if we awaken to this fact. Different frequencies of traits are deeply embedded within us, unless we are meant to look at visible differences as optical illusions and science regarding genetics as fraudulent lies. Or we can of course look at the body as a prison and look at the soul directly. When broken down to a spiritual level then maybe his theory makes sense; but why would you believe in spirits and souls if you’re an atheist or post-modernist? You will have to acknowledge the spiritual, which many don’t.

Here are some quotes from an interesting article:

“The internal memos also confirm how Monsanto exerted pressure. David Saltmiras, a Monsanto expert at the time, boasted that he had “successfully facilitated numerous third party letters to the editor.” He described his actions as being “in our own best interest” and as “the last rites for Séralini’s few remaining shreds of credibility.

The company hired a team of researchers and lobbying experts hoping to “orchestrate outcry,” and discredit the IARC as an organization with a history of “questionable and politically charged rulings.”

“Monsanto would do everything possible to protect its product, Roundup,” says Daniel Boese of the Avaaz civic organization. The company deceived consumers and influenced expert opinions for years, he explains. According to Boese, Monsanto “destroys scientific safety mechanisms that the public actually relies on,” and its lobbying influence is enormous. For instance, portions of the BfR’s glyphosate report are taken from documents from the Glyphosate Task Force, a Monsanto-led industry association. The BfR rejects the accusation of plagiarism.

In any case, Europe’s farmers would be well advised to consider the fate of Jack McCall, whose widow Teri is one of the plaintiffs in the United States. The California farmer had sprayed Roundup in his orchards for decades, where he was often accompanied by a loyal companion: his dog Duke. Duke died of lymphoma. McCall died of non-Hodgkin lymphoma a few years later.”

Here you can read about a very interesting archaeological find. I’ve highlighted the address to the article at the bottom of the quote:

“Behind the low-key announcement of the find, one can almost sense the mixed feelings of Saudi officials faced with an important discovery for their heritage, which, however, seems to connect the origins of the alphabet used to pen their sacred book to a Christian context, some 150 years before the rise of Islam.
Further consternation may have arisen when realizing that these texts are not only the legacy of a once-numerous Christian community, but are also linked to the story of an ancient Jewish kingdom that once ruled over much of what is today Yemen and Saudi Arabia.

Jews vs. Christians in the desert
While the Koran and later Muslim tradition make no bones about the presence of Jewish and Christian communities across the peninsula in Mohammed’s day, the general picture that is painted of pre-Islamic Arabia is one of chaos and anarchy. The region is described as being dominated by jahilliyah – ignorance – lawlessness, illiteracy and barbaric pagan cults.
The decades immediately before the start of the Islamic calendar (marked by Mohammed’s “hijra” – migration – from Mecca to Medina in 622 CE) were marked by a weakening of societies and centralized states in Europe and the Middle East, partly due to a plague pandemic and the incessant  warfare between the Byzantine and Persian empires.
The bleak representation of pre-Islamic Arabia was less an accurate description, it seems, than a literary metaphor to emphasize the unifying and enlightening power of Mohammed’s message.
Reexamination of works by Muslim and Christian chroniclers in recent years, as well as finds like the one in Saudi Arabia, are producing a much more elaborate picture, leading scholars to rediscover the rich and complex history of the region before the rise of Islam.

Through Christian and Muslim rule, Jews continued to be a strong presence in the Arabian Peninsula. This is clear not only from Mohammed’s (often conflictual) dealings with them, but also from the influence that Judaism had on the new religion’s rituals and prohibitions (daily prayers, circumcision, ritual purity, pilgrimage, charity, ban on images and eating pork).
In Yemen, the heartland of the Himyarites, the Jewish community endured through centuries of persecution, until 1949-1950, when almost all its remaining members – around 50,000 – were airlifted to Israel in Operation Magic Carpet. And while they maintain some unique rituals and traditions, which set them apart from Ashkenazi and Sephardi Jews, no one would doubt that they are indeed, the last, very much Jewish descendants of the lost kingdom of Himyar.”

More about Operation Gladio, I haven’t watched the videos in the link, but I will later. It’s an interesting topic to read about.

There are so many things that divide us; I wonder what could possibly unite all of mankind? Nothing; you would have to create a new man; man as we know him would have to be destroyed. Even within a religious narrative of love there will be outsiders, heretics, enemies and whatnot.

You can never read, think, question, or create enough.
