3X3's Book Of The Law!

Surrey, BC
Post #: 761
Awens to All:

I wont be able to go to the Sunday Meetup as I have been Invited to an Imbolc Paganistic Ritual to Zoe's Grove. It will be a Ritual that will be Meditating Away all our Griefs.

So since the subject on this Sunday's Meetup at the Pub is on the Subject of Where Our Place Is In This World, I think that my Book Of The Law Essay holds an Answer to that Question.

I originally Wrote it while Camping Out in Pacific Spirit Park in UBC. There is a Spot where someone had been Building a Log Cabin. I Wrote it in order to Help Explain my Feelings on how Humanity had come out of its Natural Balance and is now doing things that are Not Natural. I was trying to Express my Feelings about how Jay Handel, they guy who Killed his Children and Burnt the House in Northern Vancouver Island in 2002, after his Wife had left him.

It originally was called "The Supreme Lifeform", but one of the First People who ever read it suggested that it appeared to be some sort of Manifesto, so I Renamed it "The Supreme Lifeform Manifesto".

I then posted the Essay as "The Supreme Lifeform Manifesto" onto various Message Boards and some People made some Constructive Comments, and I made changes to it. So it started as SLM ver.1.0, and for about 6 years, changed into becoming SLM ver 5.2 or so.

Then I made a Change to myself and started writing under the Name "TheDruid-3X3". And since I had recently read Aliester Crowley's Book Of The Law, I decided to Rename my SLM Essay to "3X3's Book Of The Law". That was because I found Aleister Crowley's Book Of The Law was Very Lacking for any references for having Love for Nature. It was just a big Proclaimation towards his own Divinity, and lacked an Feelings of Pity, Compassion or Misery to the Poor and Downtrodden.

I basically made my Essay into a "Book Of The Law" to Hopefully Replace Aleister Crowley so that my Book Of The Law will maybe someday become within the Hearts and Spirits of all Celtic Pagans, Druids and Buddhists everywhere.

3X3's Book Of The Law:

Part #1: The Origins of Intelligence:

According to Carl Sagan in his Cosmos programs, the Universe started with the Big Bang approximately 15 Billion years ago. According to Wicca Paganistic Cosmology, that was the time that the Great Goddess of the Forces of Nature stirred and split off from herself her physical form and then giving birth to the God. So for billions of years, the Wheel of Time revolves with Mother Nature spinning the Fabric of Time while the God turned the Wheel.

Then about 4.5 Billion years ago, our Solar Systems evolved with all the Planets circulating around Sun. Then on one of the Planets, the Earth, Life stirred and evolved approximately 3.8 Billion years ago. Since that time, all the Creatures, Trees, and Plants lived in a gigantic harmonious struggle for the continuation of life. Sometimes the struggle for life's continuation was beautiful, peaceful, and benign. Sometimes it was cruel, brutal, and heartless. But it was always contained within the guidlines of the changing cycles of life, the seasons, and the stars.

Then the time came, about 10 Thousand Years ago or so, that one of the creatures of the Earth developed intelligence enough to realize that grains could be farmed. And almost simultaneously, the Chinese started farming rice, the American Indians started farming Corn, and the peoples of the Middle East started farming Wheat and Barley.

So after being able to harvest grains and domesticating the local animals in the Fertile Crescent, which is between Southern Turkey, Syria and Northern Iraq, humankind then had very good reliable food sources readily available.

So after having such a good food supply available, instead of always having to hunt down and kill their food as they had as hunter gatherors, the peoples of the Fertile Crescent were able to settle down in one place as they did not have to move around as much anymore.

So with such storable food supplies to last the winters, mankind then had a lot more leisure time to experiment with his environment, working to figure out ways to make life more easier. From that era, they figured out how make cement out of limestone, how to work with fire more efficiently creating iron and metal working and kiln dried pottery, thus the iron age therfore began.

After a period of experimentation, humankind then developed a rudimentary method of communication was created in the Neolithic Fertile Crescent which were mainly used as counting tokens. It is not like it was a new developement as many other lifeforms in the past had developed rudamentary forms of signage such as the bird's calls, singing or colourful plumage which Mother Nature designed in order to help signify things like: "This is mine.", "I wish to find a mate.", or "Come here, there is food here".

But the humans, in their endeavours to find better ways to communicate such necessities of life, developed this new method of communication, such as writing. At the same time, the Sumerians were communicating with their Coniform Writing, and the Chinese had started developing their Kanji Writing. In those three cultures, with the new invention of writing, that peoples were able to organize the first rudementary government structures, document advances in architecture, and started creating and chronicalling developements in the first methods of agroculture. To further show the power of the complex system of communications called Writing, just look at how Humanity has changed since the 14th century when Johannes Gutenburg invented the Moveable Type Printing Press. It was through his invention that technological advances could be chroncalled for future developed by future Scientists and Inventors. Such ability to chronical technological advances allowed them to be improved to the point of our being able to enjoy the standards of living we have today.

At first the Ogham was a "Tree Alphabet" were used to be engraved onto sticks as well as larger standing stones. Archeological findings show them always as landmarks or as burial monuments. The Celts had an Oral Tradition, so Ogham was not used to write stories or history as these were memorized. During this time, Mother Nature was the earliest companion of Primitive Mankind. She provided the bounty by which our distant forbears could shelter and survive. In return for her abundance, people at that time, reverred Nature and the earliest Religions worshipped her.

In time, the signage of the Ogham Scripture evolved to become more and more complex and more and more information could be communicated or recorded for future generations to take advantage of. Then came the day that a group of humans, observed that they had developed advances in technology, better living standards, and even harnessing some of Earths creatures as beasts of burden. The humans (at about a millenium of so just before the Biblical Exodus), seeing that they had seemed to better nature in so many respects, then proclaimed that mankind must have been created in some sort of Godlike Image , and some misguided theological philosopher then wrote it into scripture (ie: Genesis 1: 26 - 31) as such at about 5 to 6 thousand years ago.

Part #2 - Chronical of Humankind's Greatest Sin:

So the ancient Egyptians then proclaimed themselves as such by placing one of their great strong heroes on a throne and proclaimed him Pharoah, the living embodiment of God on Earth.

At this time, when the Egyptians were just starting to build their pyramids and temples, the Northern European Celtic Druids, who had already correctly identified the forces of Mother Nature as the object of veneration. had already built The Stonehenge several thousand years before, upon which, the sacred cycles of all life was worshipped.

In the meantime, the Egyptians were building great massive structures proclaiming each successive Pharoah as created in a Godlike Image. As time went on, the temples depicting human pharoahs as created in a Godlike Image got ever bigger, larger, and grander.

Soon the Egyptian concept of Pharoah being created in a Godlike Image spread to neighboring Middle Eastern Countries, and other races of the human species started proclaiming themselves as created in Godlike Images too. Unfortunately, that only got proclaimed on their own peoples, tribes, or races, and that was when Rascism was First Invented.

Eventually, the Egyptians found that they lacked sufficient manpower and wealth to carry on building their growing megaliths of architectural beauty, so since they concidered Pharoah as created in a Godlike Image, and their Pharoah ordered it to be done so (an order he made to reinforce his own superiority complex), the Egyptians went forth conquering and enslaving other peoples (mainly the Hebrews) of the known world to be made to serve Pharoah in building the massive magaliths of architecture.

Since slightly earlier, the prophet Abraham had proclaimed that all people were created in a Godlike Image, and that God had granted humankind dominion over the Earth (sorry, mankind TOOK dominion over the Earth under the guidlines set out by the Scripture of Genesis 22, no intelligent god worth his weight in wisdom would ever grant any single lifeform of the Earth dominion over the Earth!!!), the Hebrews resented their bondage by the Egyptians. This led to the Biblical Exodus. For that story, just watch the mega movie 10 Commandments with Charleston Heston, of which I have on tape.

It was at about this time in History of Humankind when the Israelites were doing their Biblical Exodus from Egypt that the Great Buddha was Born and after coming to his Enlightenment that he correctly deduced that all Animals, Trees and Plants were just as important as Mankind is and that all Life of the Earth are part of a symbient circle of Life, all being dependent on each other for Survival. The Great Buddha then started walking the Earth of Asia, spreading the word of the Philosophies that came from his achieving his new level of Enlightenment.

After Alexander the Great conquered the Middle East and Asia, he established the Tolomies of Egypt. They ruled in their own right and then smartly created alliances with Rome until Cleopatra in 43 AD. However, the Hebrews resisted the Romans with such ferver using the passive resistance tactics prescribed by Jesus Christ, that the Romans expelled the Hebrews throughout the known world similarily as the British did when they expelled the French Acadians from Canada during the war of 1812.

During the time of the Romans, the Romans, under the leadership of Julius Caesar, came north and conquered Gaul, Carthage, and the British Isles. They imposed their pantheonon on Gods (all depicted in a human image) on the Druids and outlawed the Druids worship of Nature, Earth, and the Cycles of Life. The Druids simply adapted, accepting the new Roman Gods as their own, and carried on worshipping the cycles of life in secret.

Then came the great Middle Eastern Prophet Mohamed, who once again proclaimed that all peoples of Earth are created in a Godlike Image. He preached Peace, Love, and Understanding just as Abraham, and Jesus Christ had. Unfortunately, he named the new Muslim God Allah, and not the God, the Spirit, and the Holy Ghost as the established Christians believed. So that brought about the animosity that led to the Crusades, of which Jesus Christ might have just said if he had been alive, "Leave them at Peace to worship God in their own way, and let us worship God in our own way in Peace". Unfortunately, J.C. was not around to say so. The over xellous Christians then invaded the Middle East and created the inter-racial animosities that have lasted to this day (ie: the WTC attacks).

It was at this point in time, following the Crusades, that the deadly persecutions of the Nature Worshipping Druids and the Wicca Pagans began by the over xellous Catholics. This culminated with the horrible genocidal witch hunts in Salom in the 1600s. This came to an end with the refounding of the signifigance of Stonehenge by John Aubrey during the 1700s.

It was also during this time that the over xellous Catholics went about travelling the Earth and eventually arriving in Asia where they decried Buddhism as Heathenistic and worked to convert the Buddhists to Christianity with the same fervor as they worked to convert the Native Peoples of the American Continents.

Now since the time humanity was proclaimed in a Godlike Image, humanity has been driven to prove it by being bigger, grander, and more important than humanity actually is. that is why certain people who believe in such philosophies demand bigger houses, flashier cars, and nicer clothes. That has been the reasoning for humanity wanting to be superior over our fellow man, other lifeforms, and over Nature itself. In the endeavor of doing such things, we have done terrible things to each other in order to prove it without realizing that creating such Bad Karma always eventually comes back to haunt us. This includes such things as fighting meaningless wars (the aforementioned Crusades), being in total dominance over others (ie: the murderous Jim Jones of Jonestown Ghana), and having the psychotic need of being in total control over everything, including committing abuses on our own Children and such abuses being exasperated by the Written Notion that Fathers and Mothers always being Honored under the 5th Commandment.

It is because of the religious belief that humankind being created in a Godlike Image that has caused the human emotions of Egotism, Vanity, and Greed to be created. If the old prophets Abraham, Jesus Christ, and Mohamed had of had any idea how much death, sufferring, and destruction would be inflicted by humankind onto his fellow man, other lifeforms, and the Earth in their names, they would have kept thier mouths shut, and not ever preached a word to anyone, and would have gone onto other presuites or occupations.

Part #3: The True Supreme Lifeform:

On the 10th of June 2000, I positively identified the Earth's most Supreme Lifeform!!!

I was on a trip to Japan visitting my old roomate. We had met when we were both volunteers for the Vancouver Healing Voices organization that had been formed in order to put on the 50th Anniversary Rememberance Ceremonies for the dropping of the Atomic Bomb on Nagasaki (They did not do Hiroshima, do not ask me why. I was not in charge.) After that, we became roomates for about a year and we even have the same birthdates (2 - June). In 2000, I went to Japan to a 2 week birthday party holiday.

The first week was spent with my old roomate. We basically ate, drink, and partied our heads off. Then I went on a week long Atomic Bomb pilgrimage through Hiroshima and Nagasakis.

I spent one day and night in Hiroshima and then two days and nights in Nagasaki. I saw things in those towns that totally blew my mind (mybe the reason why many of you are already thinking, "this guy has a blown mind").

I found the party atmosphere in Hiroshima to be much better than in Nagasaki, so after two days in Nagasaki, I returned to Hiroshima to party some more. I spent four more days touring, partying, and learning in Hiroshima. I was staying in the Hiroshima Youth Hostel. I made friends there with a Swedish gentleman (I can not remember his name) and a Japanese girl from Kyoto named Kyokosan.

On the 10th of June, our trio went downtown and toured around. It was about 2:00pm or so when we happenned into the Rai Sanyo Shiseki Museum. It is about 100 meters south of the intersection of Rijodori and Hondori Streets, which was the A-Bomb Hypocenter. (the Enola Gays sights were right on target that day). We decided to go inside this museum's compound. It turned out that Rai Sanyo was a famous Samurai whose job was to be a Japanese Philosopher. The Shogun of the time liked his writings, so ordered him to stay in a specially constructed house and write his philosophies. Rai Sanyo was sent to Hiroshima, and was not allowed to leave the house (Rai Sanyo tried escaping a few times, only to be caught and forceably brought back). As a memorial to Rai Sanyosan, the house was declared a national historic landmark to be perserved (and has since been rebuilt).

After looking at that, we went back into the courtyard and found a
Japanese "Kuroganemochi" Tree with a sign next to it. The sign stated that
this Kuroganemochi Tree was in the Atomic Bomb Explosion, and that it was
burnt to a smoldering stump flat to the ground. The sign even invites you to
examine the ground around the new tree's roots for remnants of the old
tree's roots. I did so and there they were. The sign then states that in
the months that followed the A-Bomb dropping, a new tree started sprouting from out of the old original burnt roots, and eventually grew all the way back to full health and vigour without any deformities whatsoever.

As I was having my mind blown by this revealation, I then thought back into
my past of a M*A*S*H episode I saw as a child in 1974 where Hawkeye
and Trapper John were using a fictitional Captain Tuttle to do good
philanthropedical deeds for the local orphanage. In order to confuse Majors
Burns and Houlihan, they had to make up a totally fictitional personnel file
on the fictitional Captain Tuttle. In the scene where Hawkeye and Trapper
John are making the fictitional file, they come to the point where the file
asks for the subject's religion. Hawkeye goes, "Religion, hmmmm. Lets make
him a Druid". Trapper John asks, "A Druid? Whats that?". Hawkeye
responds, "They are tree worshippers. They worship Trees". To which
Trapper John shrugs his shoulders and responds, "OK, make him a Druid".
Then Hawkeye mutters, "A Druid", to himself as he writes it into the file.
As I was marvelling at the Kuroganemochi Tree, that M*A*S*H scene came
back to me, and I started thinking to myself over and over, "Become a Druid,
become a Druid. Yes, become a Druid". And that is why I am here today
writting this essay on this message board. It was actually from that M*A*S*H episode that I first heard the word Druid, although I did run across the word again in my late teens while I was playing the game Dungeons and Dragons.

Later on, when I saw how the Buddhists did not react violently when the Taliban of Afghanistan were blowing up Ancient Buddhistic Temples in their country that I came to realize how Peacefull and Blessed Buddhism is. Never in the Histories of Buddhism that I have ever read have the Buddhists fought a War in the name of their Religion. When faced with an Enemy such as the Taliban, or the Mongul Hordes in the 13th Century, they have always used Passive Resistance, go quietly underground with their beliefs and wait for the Invading Armies to grow Old and pass into History. They then come out of their Monasteries or other hiding places, repair the damage the Enemy did and then go on with their Lives Peacefully and Harmoniously. I have even know them to form alliances with similar Cultures whose belief system are similar to theirs. In Japan, the Buddhists and Japanese Shintoists, although being different Religions, worship together and even help each other doing their Rituals and Holidays together.

That is why I am also a Dedicant of Japanese Buddhism and Japanese Shintoism because I have reverance for their Peaceable Belief Systems.

Now when I was on a posting to a certain Canadian Forces Army Base
(identity classified) in Alberta in the early 1990s, I went to Drumheller's
Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology. It has a lot of paleontological
history chronicalled in it. In it, I observed that whatever caused the
dinosaurs to go extinct (I think it was a huge asteroid hitting the Earth), the
Tree and Plants of the Earth easily survived and grew all the way back after
a few decades.

Also, I saw an archeology show on the Discovery Channel chronicalling
how the growth of life in Ireland and Europe slowed right down form
536 AD to 538 AD (I was not fast enough with a video tape to record the
program, whiz me off!!!). They then did research on why there was such a
slow down in Plant growth. After examining various cultural records from
that time period, it was found that the Chinese had recorded a massive
explosion sound wave coming form the general direction of the South
Pacific, namely the Island of Krakatoa. There are records of a great cloud
of volcanic dust covering the Earth, and no light got through for two years.
So nothing grew, and there were great famines. It was the panic of this
great famine that caused the final collapse of the Roman Empire. Now
before the 1880s, Krakatoa was densely forested without any sign of the
536 AD explosion. Then during the 1880s, it exploded again. Within 50
years, the Krakatoa's island remnants where once again densely reforested.
No matter how massively that island explodes, there are always at least
some seeds that survive to later regrow.

So if Tree and Plants are a lifeform that can easily outsurvive Atomic Bomb
blasts at point blank range, asteroids hitting the Earth killing the dinosaurs,
and Krakatoa exploding, then the Trees and Plants of Earth are easily the
more superior lifeform to humans as well as the other organic lifeforms.
Trees and Plants of Earth have outsurvived humankind by 100s of millions of
years, and will continue to outsurvive us by 100s of millions of years until
the great solar body the Sun either explodes or implodes.

Now it is the Trees and Plants of Earth, by way of their photosynthesis, that
provides us with the oxygen that we need to breath, and if we do not treat
them with more respect, then they will cut us off of our oxygen supply and
we will all die off from asphixiation. Once we have died off, the surviving
Trees and Plants will spread their seeds and grow right back. We have to
stop taking them for granted like the people of Easter Island, and Haiti did,
and now the peoples of South America now are doing.

As a matter of a fact, if Humankind wants to survive the Nucleo Techonological Age that we have created around ourselves, although we all have to change your priorities in Life to Live doing as we Freely Will, Whilst Harming None, we now have to start Serving the Trees and Plants of the Planet Earth before ourselves. We have all served our own Selfish Aims for far too long. It we do not start serving the Trees and Plants with Reverrance and Respect soon, then they will soon stopping providing us with the Food, Atmosphere, and Oxygen that we all need to Live.

So in conclusion, if you want my opinion on what lifeform is created in a
Godlike Image, I would point out that it is the Trees and Plants of Earth,
especially the Hiroshima Survivor Kuroganmochi Tree, which I hold in
absolute veneration.

Awens to All:

I got a round trip Email from Susie asking "I'm a therapist in the process of starting my own counselling practice and am very interested in hearing from people who have left a fundamental religion/faith of some kind, and may have struggled or are still struggling with different parts of that process.

I know for me there have been challenges in a few areas since leaving Christianity (although I wouldn't trade leaving for anything), and I would love to be able to help others through this process."

My BOTL Essay pretty much covers My Path on such things, so it is for Susie's Benefit that I am Bumping this Thread back up.
