One of the greatest compliments, I think, is to be quoted by others. However, it's a pleasure one doesn't easily come by. When was the last time YOU were quoted? At least I can report with a measure of pride that the most recent occasion was when I received a signed copy of Dean Johns's Even Madder About Malaysia (SIRD, 2009) and discovered that he had quoted me on the back cover blurb. It was such a thrill I thought to myself, why wait for others to quote you? Why not quote myself? So here's a random selection of original quotes culled from various emails and essays written over the years, covering a wide range of topics. And, of course, you're quite welcome to quote me anytime you like!

Over the past decades I have learnt to accept occasional bouts of depression and spiritual paralysis as a way of compensating for my arrogant and megalomanic tendencies during periods when I'm functioning at peak. I'm glad to report that in the last 10 years or so I've been able to minimize my downtime to no more than a few minutes - or a few hours under extreme circumstances - whenever that ancient sense of futility rears its world-weary head and threatens to derail me from fulfilling my true destiny and potential – which is to reclaim the throne of my personal Ithaca by drawing the magical bow of Odysseus or the Pendragon’s sword from the stone, thereby restoring the balance and harmony of all worlds.

I define heaven as limitless abundance and infinite possibilities for all beings - which is why I accept all viewpoints and terminologies without feeling the need to intervene or censor.

One-third of humanity constitutes what Drunvalo Melchizedek calls "the moderns" - a mutation of the Adamic human especially in the last 500 years into skin-encapsulated, ego-driven "individuals" with acute cosmological myopia and an insatiable lust for the trappings of material success. These are the anthropocentric apologists and defenders of the status quo, who have internalized Darwinian them-or-us notions of survival, and haven't yet released primordial trauma loops or scarcity conditioning in their genetic encoding. But they'll get "there" - sooner or later. Everyone does, eventually. There are no "losers" in the cosmic dance of eternal transmutation. Each of us is Brahma, Shiva, and Vishnu all rolled into one. And we’re all Buddha and Jesus too.

The Educated Mind is, essentially, a self-exploring alphanumeric symbol processing system - a software program that took on a life of its own, like Pinocchio. How real is it? Real enough, so that a heap of words strung together in sentences, and edited into a book, can shift your entire life around - or at least make you smile, frown, weep, laugh, seethe with rage, whoop with joy, look at everything with new eyes. The Book, indeed, can fuck up an entire species - make people dumber than sheep, mistrust their neighbors, question their own worthiness, discourage them from thinking beyond the confines of dogma, even justify genocide as in pogroms, crusades and jihads.

The REAL action is going on INSIDE of us, on the molecular and genetic levels. The whole story is about bloodlines and how the original divine DNA was literally stolen and mucked around with by a renegade bunch of reptoids with aberrant notions of dominion over other lifeforms. This has led to such a confusion and profusion of genetics coming into the planetary mix, not a single species now has any of its primordial genetics intact.

However, the original Golden Thread Prime Genetic of Immortality is hidden within all the other programs and when you locate it and allow it to reactivate and reinstate itself as sovereign and supreme, as it actually is, since it derives directly from Prime Creator Source, then your multiple selves begin to line up correctly and can be wholly reintegrated on the atomic, molecular, cellular, AND soulular levels - and that's what is meant by the word INTEGRITY.

And only with Molecular Integrity restored can we experience REALITY/ROYALTY beyond the holographic hell loosely called The Matrix. Freedom IS the destination, as Martin Luther King declared, so let freedom ring clear as a bell - but clarity comes from purity of feeling, beyond the distortion of fear and hate programming.

Institutionalized education is definitely among the biggest scams of all - but every state deems it NECESSARY, in fact COMPELS ATTENDANCE by introducing Truancy Acts, thereby coercing all children of a certain age to turn themselves in for social formatting, so they can grow up as Happy Slaves.

A great deal of confusion stems from using the word EGO to define the unique sense of identity we call INDIVIDUALITY. It was fairly inevitable for the Self to experiment with self-fragmentation so that it could explore the myriad possibilities presented by INDIVIDUALIZATION. Up to a certain point, the acute sense of INDIVIDUALITY can pose new problems: alienation, isolation, anomie, which ultimately results in the overly individualistic self becoming carcinogenic (antisocial, vandalistic, competitive, criminal).

However, now that we have nifty new concepts like the Hologram Universe and FRACTALS to play around with, it's possible for us to view self as a perfect microcosm of Self ("My Father and I are One"). This way we can restore the integrity of the EGO's sense of purpose - and its awareness of the Whole, the Original Core Self, so that it consciously and willingly cooperates with Macrocosmic Self as it continues to explore, experiment, and experience the infinite permutations of its Divine Selfhood.

Ego, ergo sum.

May 2011 be immensely fulfilling for all of us!

Humans have become schizoid, developing a reflex to cover up whatever is considered private and magnify everything regarded as public. Morality revolves around sex; politicians must resign the moment they are caught with their pants down. Corrupt and dishonest politicians are tolerated, often get re-elected, and can do just about anything: extort, intimidate, abduct, torture, imprison, murder or drop bombs on crowded cities. - Antares, essay, 2009, adapted

Take sex away from people. Make it forbidden, evil. Limit it to ritualistic breeding. Force it to back up into suppressed sadism. Then hand the people a scapegoat to hate. Let them kill a scapegoat occasionally for cathartic release. The capacity of the human mind for swallowing nonsense and spewing it forth in violent and repressive action has never yet been plumbed. - Robert Heinlein, Revolt in 2100, 1953

That must be the best definition of institutionalised education and explanation of individuality that I've heard.

I can't imagine what makes you the artist and thinker that you are, so I'll just start with familiar territory: books. What do you read, Antares?

@Anon, Crankster & CoyotePrime - Hugs all the way home!

Semuanya OK kot - Always a pleasure to read your comments, bro. Gives me the feeling I'm not the only fool on the hill :-D

Joe (may I assume you're the infamous Mr Blow?) - Thanks for cheering me up. You can't imagine how despondent I felt when I got out of bed and heard the bamboo lorry again and started despising the Orang Asli for allowing themselves to be turned into booze-swilling, quarreling, cat-and-dog-murdering Orcs. But, yes, they are indeed the last of the Mohicans... the rest of our ancestors got corrupted and enslaved many generations ago... and now our descendants are happily shopping and popping pills, sucking each other off on weekends, and posing as trendies who believe it's fashionable not to trust lawyers and politicians (forgetting their own fathers and grandfathers are the ones who made telling lies and distorting reality a respectable tradition).

As for what books I read... perhaps you could obtain a copy of Tanah Tujuh from Silverfishbooks.com. There's a thick bibliography at the back that gives a good idea what sort of material I find of interest :-)

Joe said...

Thanks for the tip :)

I have nothing to do with Mr Blow. Your question makes me want to be infamous now.

How about books you grew up reading? I realise that whatever command of English I have now owes a lot to what I used to read. I wonder what gave you yours.

Joe - Like most kids my age I grew up lapping up every Enid Blyton book I could find in the library, then graduated to Just William books, and later the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew. Enid Blyton inspired me to attempt my first epic-length story. I started typing on a roll of toilet paper - and after I had more than 10 feet of typewritten text on toilet paper, I got frustrated with the process and used it to wipe my 10-year-old arse. Decided I would stick to short poems and essays :-)

Joe said...

LMAO! Now that's a memorable story.

Same, same, same here except Just William. I got quite hooked on Agatha Christie for a period of time. Enid Blyton! I think I'm off on the right foot, then ;)

Joe said...

I forgot to add: I empathise with you about what's happening to the Orang Asli. I feel the same way about Malaysia and my Malaysian life.

Hi Antares

If you are feeling despondent, read this piece from our American friends. It'll get you up and going again!
