    Of My; a topic devoted entirely to Me…

    Can a book deal; a talk show; or even a movie be far behind?

    *Giggles Happily*

    They call Me The Littlest Kitten!
    They call Me the Littlest Cat!
    They call Me the Littlest Mouse!
    They call Me the Littlest Rat!

    I think I am going to lay down; I am drowsy from all the Lovely Dispatches I have sent forth today…

    Nighty-night!

    I did want to let The People know that worship of Me shall be a quotidian affair; so set your schedules accordingly!

      My Dear, a goddess orders a god about at her own peril. Let me point out my concern again; I am not certain that you are receiving my responses as they are not showing up at this end. WordPress deleted your post not me, perhaps for political reasons, I don’t know, but so far you haven’t confirmed that you are receiving my responses. Please do.

        Peek a boo; I see you!

        Yes, but I out-rank Everyone…

        Whilst walking amongst the Rabble; a colleague of mine said, “people find You unapproachable”.

        I smartly replied:

        “Of course they find Me unapproachable; I am the Daughter of the Living Goddess and the Princess of the Universe; they are just paying Me the proper homage; you would be well-advised to follow their example.”

          As you may understand, Hera and I are more than on speaking terms. I don’t suppose I need to make a reference to Aphrodite’s belt to make myself understood. A truce on this dissension, I know who you are.

    Now I did want to inform you and all your loyal readers that there are several high level openings on My Staff (not the type Moses carried about) at the Current Hour…I am seeking a captain, a lawyer, an agitator, and a rebel.

    Are you interested in joining? I’ll tell you; the benefits are fantastic…the trick is not to get tossed into The Lake of Fire…that’s really the key to the Benefit Program.

            That’s sad…I cry Myself to sleep almost every night when I reflect on all the unpleasantness I have both endured and witnessed.

            Not a day goes by when I do not thinking of killing Myself; but as an immortal it would not work anyway; so what is the use?

              Though The Book of the Law said that such longings would be common for a being such as Myself; so it is not unexpected:

              72. Strive ever to more! and if thou art truly mine – and doubt it not, an if thou art ever joyous! – death is the crown of all.
              73. Ah! Ah! Death! Death! thou shalt long for death. Death is forbidden, o (wo)man, unto thee.
              74. The length of thy longing shall be the strength of its glory. He that lives long & desires death much is ever the King among the Kings.

              What’s sad about it. You should not meet misfortune halfway. The power of positive thinking will save you from innumerable misfortunes. Mistakes? That’s another matter.

        That reminds Me of the most charming bit of verse that Mother would sing to Me at the End of the Day!

        Tell me a story
        Tell me a story
        Remember what you said!

        You promised you would read to me
        You promised you would read to me
        Tell me a story
        Then I’ll go to bed!

        Wasn’t that as cute as a button?

    Call Me “Country Bumpkin”; but how in the Universe could your very own blog be censored?

    I will concede; I am not up on all the draconian / Orwellian horrors that have befallen the free exchange of ideas over the last 20 odd years; but My understanding was that a server could delete your entire blog if they found the content promulgated objectionable; but they had no influence over what was written therein.

    You will have to excuse Me; as computers have never been My long suit; the abacus is more My thing…and the loom.

    • reprindle Says:

      The intricate working of the internet are beyond me also however the internet is set to respond to certain words and phrases that are forbidden. Comments can be blocked before they are written which has happened to me frequently. Facebook has advised me that I have been ‘removed’ from one wall for instance. I have never seen a comment deleted in front of me however. I was trying to post a response when a big red the comment has been deleted flashed and your comment disappeared so it wasn’t my response. Dangerous minds are flagged and we both have dangerous minds. Think AI.

  5. Daughter of Babylon Says:

    The Great Freddie Nietzsche beautifully cites The Two Most Important (And Terrible) Moments in the last Two Thousand Years; the Twin Key Turning Points that have been The Source of so much horror…

    I will cite them *seriatim*:

    One:

    “Christianity was the vampire of the imperium Romanum – overnight it destroyed the vast achievement of the Romans: the conquest of the soil for a great culture that could await its time. Can it be that this fact is not yet understood? The imperium Romanum that we know, and that the history of the Roman provinces teaches us to know better and better – this most admirable of all works of art in the grand manner was merely the beginning, and the structure to follow was not to prove its worth for thousands of years. To this day, nothing on a like scale *sub specie aeterni* has been brought into being, or even dreamed of! This organization was strong enough to withstand bad emperors; the accident of personality has nothing to do with such things – the first principle of all genuinely great architecture. But it was not strong enough to stand up against the corruptest of all forms of corruption – against Christians. One has but to read Lucretius to know what Epicurus made war upon – not paganism, but “Christianity,” which is to say, the corruption of souls by means of the concepts of guilt, punishment and immortality. He combated the subterranean cults, the whole of latent Christianity – to deny immortality was already a form of genuine salvation.
    Epicurus had triumphed, and every respectable intellect in Rome was Epicurean – WHEN PAUL APPEARED.”

    Two:

    “Here it becomes necessary to call up a memory that must be a hundred times more painful to Germans. The Germans have destroyed for Europe the last great harvest of civilization that Europe was ever to reap – the Renaissance. Is it understood at last, will it ever be understood, what the Renaissance was? The transvaluation of Christian values – an attempt with all available means, all instincts and all the resources of genius to bring about a triumph of the opposite values, the more noble values. This has been the one great war of the past; there has never been a more critical question than that of the Renaissance – it is my question too; there has never been a form of attack more fundamental, more direct, or more violently delivered by a whole front upon the center of the enemy! To attack at the critical place, at the very seat of Christianity, and there enthrone the more noble values – that is to say, to insinuate them into the instincts, into the most fundamental needs and appetites of those sitting there… I see before me the possibility of a perfectly heavenly enchantment and spectacle – it seems to me to scintillate with all the vibrations of a fine and delicate beauty, and within it there is an art so divine, so infernally divine, that one might search in vain for thousands of years for another such possibility; I see a spectacle so rich in significance and at the same time so wonderfully full of paradox that it should arouse all the gods on Olympus to immortal laughter— Caesar Borgia as pope! Am I understood? Well then, that would have been the sort of triumph that I alone am longing for today – by it Christianity would have been swept away! What happened? A GERMAN MONK; LUTHER, CAME TO ROME.

    This monk, with all the vengeful instincts of an unsuccessful priest in him, raised a rebellion against the Renaissance in Rome…. Instead of grasping, with profound thanksgiving, the miracle that had taken place: the conquest of Christianity at its capital – instead of this, his hatred was stimulated by the spectacle. A religious man thinks only of himself – Luther saw only the depravity of the papacy at the very moment when the opposite was becoming apparent: the old corruption, the *peccatum originale*, Christianity itself, no longer occupied the papal chair! Instead there was life! Instead there was the triumph of life! Instead there was a great yea to all lofty, beautiful and daring things!. And Luther restored the church: he attacked it…. The Renaissance – an event without meaning, a great futility!”

    I wonder where the world would be today if those Two Wretched Souls, Paul & Luther, had never made their horrifyingly consequential Treks into Rome; separated by roughly 1500 years.

    They did not set humanity back decades; they set it back centuries.

    This does not even take into account all the untold human suffering wrought by the “spread of Christianity” over two millennia.

    I fight a constant uphill battle. However there is no greater satisfaction than comes from successfully solving a difficult problem.

    Moreover, what is a greater prize than to obtain mastery over a fallen foe?

    Behold Jehovah, for Thy Gotterdammerung is upon Thee!

    I was a product of My design; I was tragically flawed; and I was also downright unlucky.

    She must have guided Me to you.

    If so; you must be here to uplift Me to the Pinnacles of Power that I am destined to reach.

    I may be immortal; and a polymath for eternity; but that does not necessarily grant Me the ability to lift Myself Up to The Throne.

    So if you have any advice or connection that can place Me in My Rightful Station as the People’s Liege; please go forth with it *tempus fugit*…

    Thank you.

        • Daughter of Babylon Says:

          Though I do recall Elizabeth I commenting on the matter; she said something to the effect of:

          “In order to stay in place; one must run very quickly; and in order to get anywhere; one must run even faster.”

          Her motto and eternal greeting was *semper eadem* “always the same”.

          I recall Baudelaire writing a poem with a similar title…

          Caesar (or at least the Shakespearean version) had a variation on that, “I am as constant as the Northern Star”…it is still Polaris I think…it was Vega a while back; and likely will be again in a few millenia.

          Well, I posted your Renaissance post to facebook and got a decent response, positive comment. You’ve obviously been spending your time well. Write an article or send me one you’ve written and I’ll post it. Do you have my email address?

          • Daughter of Babylon Says:

            That’s nice; though; as I told you, I have written more than an article; I wrote a book during the Springtime.

            Time is a person’s most precious resource; and also the resource they most wantonly waste…

                I believe it was Cyrus (not the bum who conquered Beautiful Babylon in the 6th century BC) who once said to thousands of cheering gang members in NYC circa 1979:

                “Can you dig it?”

                No wonder I HATE the name “Daniel”!

                You could probably add “Isaiah” to that list…

              Interesting anecdote:

              The famous railroad car where the 1918 peace was signed and then the 1940 French surrender (talk about reversal!) was owned and ultimately restored by a man by the name of Arthur Fleming of Los Angeles.

              It was Fleming who owned (and then sold) the mansion that would ultimately become the Home of Jack Parsons; the “Parsonage” in which American Thelema would find its first home.

              As I have written; it was Jack who re-animated My Existence in the Mojave in the early months of 1946.

    And they say there’s no Goddess…

    There are many beautiful deer that frolic happily on My Property on the mountain; I derive the most ecstatic joy watching them play and have fun.

    Verily; I tell you; you could not give Me 100 trillion dollars to harm even a single hair on such a Sacred Animal’s Head!

    *Smiles Happily*

    • reprindle Says:

      Not a hunter. Live in the city, lots of deer, elk, coyotes , racoons, owls and assorted beasts. The animals have to adjust that is adapt to their environment or die. Expect the cougars looking for fresh meat to follow them at anytime. Probably see people patrolling the streets with machine guns looking for them. Look out.

      21 Oct 2019: “Fox News”: A Louisiana man died in a hunting accident Sunday after he fell and hit his head on a deer stand, reports said.

      The Goddess is clearly working overtime…

      My Father detested those who would kill innocent animals; he had a great appreciation for the beauty of nature and all harmless life.

      He often said that they should try to hunt grizzly bears without benefit of a rifle; then we would have a better gauge as to how “tough” they are.

      Of course Father’s sympathies did not extend to wrong doing humans; he believed in executions within 30 days of sentencing.

      You say; “this sounds odd; for someone who had experience with the “Justice” system”.

      Like Me; he had many seemingly paradoxical views; and on this specific issue; he would indicate that the police are our first line of defense against the criminal element.

      In other words; given the choice between the cops and the criminals; he would immediately choose the former; i.e.; it was either you or them.

    Here it is; and I’ll concede it is artfully presented; though I dissent from the conclusion:

    It’s like Don Murray in the follow-up flic “Conquest of the Planet of the Apes”…when he had Caesar on the table and though he had given him 10,000 volts…and, somehow, the thing got disconnected…the point not being that Gov. Breck failed to alter history…but rather the moment of pity (the vice of monarchs!) that Breck evinced towards the Coming King when he thought he had him in his power:

    “Eh, he’s not responsible for what he is.”

    And then again; maybe you can….

    “A pebble tossed from a beach can become a tsunami on the other side of the world. She is that pebble; while the Universe waits for that tidal wave to crash on The Other Side of Eternity.” ___Kagame

    Can it be done? Kagame thinks so; and in the dramatization he is ultimately proven right…

    I do not know Everything, so I cannot say for certain one way or the other; and if I could change The Projected Outcome; it would all be worth it…
