Apocalypse

Post by Ray W » Mon Jan 10, 2022 2:00 pm

"What man most passionately wants is his living wholeness and his living unison,
not his own isolate salvation of his 'soul.' Man wants his physical fulfillment first
and foremost, since now, once and once only, he is in the flesh and potent. For
man, the vast marvel is to be alive. For man, as for flower and beast and bird,
the supreme triumph is to be most vividly, most perfectly alive. Whatever the
unborn and dead may know, they cannot know the beauty, the marvel of being
alive in the flesh. The dead may look after the afterwards. But the magnificent
here and now of life in the flesh is ours, and ours alone, and ours only for a
time. We ought to dance with rapture that we should be alive and in the flesh,
and part of the living, incarnate cosmos. I am part of the sun as my eye is part
of me. That I am part of the earth my feet know perfectly, and my blood is
part of the sea.
"...what we want is to destroy our false, inorganic connections, especially those
related to money, and re-establish the living organic connections with the cosmos,
the sun and the earth, with mankind and nation and family. Start with the sun,
and the rest will slowly, slowly happen."
--from Apocalypse, by D.H. Lawrence

Mr. Lawrence was a Cosmotheist, as were others, well before Dr. Pierce coined the word.

Thanks for that, Ray.

This part of this poetic quote rings directly true for me and is why Costmotheism rings true for me. It directly backs up my real-world observations in my own life.

I drank and used drugs for many years because I desperately wanted that 'living unison.' I wanted to be one with the Whole so badly and drugs and drinking had - at one time - been my best prospect for experiencing that.

Of course, that belief and lifestyle were false and so had to go.

Now when I actually am carrying out my part in the Self-Created's work, the barrier between the Whole and me dissolves and I experience what I always wanted. Unity!
