I’ve been doing this for a while now. It’s called “blogging” and that has many descriptions but for me it means sharing “stuff” with others, and learning from the stuff they share on their own pages. So I maintain a “blog” on which I post personal thoughts, ideas, pictures, stories and sometimes I’ll re-blog someone else’s article because I feel it deserves to get more “publicity” so to speak, or it contains ideas that help us understand ourselves and the world we live in.
I guess that makes me a blogger. So I blog to learn and to share. But I have an agenda here. I’m not looking for “stats” in numbers of “followers” or “likes” – though these indicate that what I am sharing provides some appeal to certain individuals and that’s great, but my long-term purpose in blogging is finding a way to create conversations around the really tough issues, subjects, ideas.
I’m not here to discuss “religion, politics, global warming, misogyny… or anything else” for that matter. Of course these topics will be engaged. News, statistics, opinions, articles and rants will come into play. That’s our background: expressing what we see as “wrong” and talking about solutions to such wrongs, and sometimes even talking about positive developments and how they make us feel good, or make us feel that we are finally accomplishing something “humane” somewhere in the world. There’s an endless game going on and we like to see the “home” team score once in a while, though the home team always remains the underdog.
But for me, that’s just the opening salvo. I don’t want solutions, I want answers. I’ve been building this blog under the title ~burning woman~ which has raised a few eyebrows though for most I suppose it’s just one of those titles people make up to stand out from the crowd.
~burning woman~ is the author of this blog. She is me: the perennially denied, powerless, oppressed member of – get this – 50% of the human population of planet earth. Any normal person would stop in absolute shock right there and think, how is it possible that 50% of the adult population of this world has little or no social power, legal status, physical safety and gets no recognition for playing a role without which society and civilization would not be possible!
This isn’t a feminist blog. I just want to point out that misogyny is one of the few truly great evils that gnaw at the roots of society. Misogyny lies athwart the path of mankind’s evolution and blocks it completely. As long as such an evil is countenanced among “men” that is how long all other evils will continue to plague man and destroy his civilizations, one after the other.
~burning woman~ is a reminder that the greatest pollution on this world is the stench that comes from her permanently burning dying flesh. No part of this world is free of that poison. But she is also a reminder that she is, in herself, very much aware of this terrible condition – and how could she not be? It’s her living flesh that is being burned in the public square for all “male” gawkers to jeer at. The 19 year old Joan of Arc, and millions upon millions of others burned on the altars of the patriarchy and although the methods have slightly changed, the same thing goes on day after day and it’s business as usual.
This blog is meant to expose the great evils that plague the human race of earth and to seek answers by asking the troubling “WHY” question. Why misogyny? Can any sane Earthian give just one good reason why men should hate, fear, oppress, disempower, rape, torture and kill women? And their children? One single good reason that could explain – and justify – it all?
Here’s another great evil, and make no mistake, it’s completely tied to the previous evil: predation. Can anyone give one good reason why earth must exist under such a life-destroying concept? There is no doubt that man is a violent predator and that he revels in this role. We see it in sports, in hunting and fishing, in extraction of natural resources from the planet, in enslaving certain groups and races to serve elites, and certainly in man’s endless and spreading wars. Man is so addicted to being a predator that even knowing he has far surpassed his limits to growth, he continues his business as usual as if nothing mattered but the kill. But in this case, the evil runs even deeper, down into the roots of the planet itself, running amok among all of it’s life-forms.
There are those who believe in karma. In the “Chrisrael” holy book it’s reaping what you sow. Man is so utterly alien and unnatural that even when faced with his own extinction from his predatory mindset, he will not turn. It’s as if he cannot break his programming.
So, this blog is about questioning the programming. It’s about looking over history – official or not; accepted or not; real or fictitious (for who can sort it out and keep a straight face about it?) and looking for answers to the great evils that plague the species and are about to plunge it into quasi-oblivion.
Don’t get me wrong here, I’m not concerned or worried about man’s quasi extinction in the near future – I have been shown this to take place before the next 500 years – that to me isn’t the problem since it is inevitable. My problem is, I’ve begun to develop a sense of empathy and to be an empath on a world driven by fear, hate, predation and misogyny is, put bluntly, unbearable. I “sense” the level of horror, terror, agony; the screams of those now being crushed and the billions about to be crushed, by the man-made engines of destruction. In my heart I join in the screams and want no part of this coming world, and often I want no part of this one, even now.
But if I’m going to remain a part of it for a while yet, I need to engage my mind looking for answers to the “WHY?” question. And I’m hoping to do this on this blog, bit by bit with probably more false leads and wrong tangents that can be imagined. Those answers are well hidden and man’s “masters” fear their discoveries and the development of fail-safe antidotes.
I may have written this before, but it bears repeating, for comparison. I often queried the Teachers about the state of planet earth and the Earthian mindset about the oh, so casual killing if innocents. There is a world they call “Altaria” which by way of avoiding giving it a location they say exists in what they call “the Nexus” – the non-space-place they say, that exists between all universes. Altaria is what some would probably call a fifth dimensional world. El Issa, one of the Teachers, said to me: “If a single child died of preventable causes on our world, the entire world would come to a horrified stand-still and slip into universal mourning. Nothing would happen on the world: no teaching, no business, no sleeping or eating or even talking until as one body the people had worked out the reason for this unthinkable anomaly and resolved it. Now compare that to your world where some 40,000 children and their mothers die of completely preventable causes, i.e., deliberately condemned to death… each and every day. This crime is of such unthinkable proportion that your Earthian mind cannot even engage it. You live within this murderous horror day after day and you believe that by living in denial of it you can give yourself a “normal” life. You cannot, you never will, until you put an end to this. And before you question me on the possible: yes, you can. We know because we had the very same problem and we ended it. We stopped it. That’s what you need to do: you need to stop.”
You know this is the case, but do you know WHY men oppress women? You know this is the case, but do you know WHY predation is a ruling force on your world?
