Goddess to the Rescue?
The Kalki Avatar in Sophianic Perspective
Hindu myth, recorded in the Puranas and elsewhere, describes an immense cosmic scenario of the Dreaming God, Vishnu. It is said that Vishnu the Cosmic Dreamer appears on ten occasions in his own dream, which is life as we know it. These are the ten avatars or incarnations of Vishnu.
Vishnu Dreaming beneath the hood of the many-headed Serpent of Eternity, Ananta. Aeons may be regarded as massive torrents of living plasma (Organic Light) capable of observing the cosmic environment. The serpents overlooking the Dreamer may represent the attendance of the entire Pleromic company, witnesses to the dream scenario underway. The eyes of the Ananta snakes are open (observing, witnessing) while Vishnu's are closed (dreaming, emanating).
The mytheme of the dreaming god is a variant of world mythology called oneiric myth, from the Gr oneiros, "dream." Oh-neer-ik. "Dream" is to be understood in this sense, neither as a make-believe alternative to reality, fostering escapism for those who cannot face life as it is, nor as a collectively assumed false notion or narrative (the myth of American dominance, for instance). True myth is neither fantasy nor falsity. When it is genuine, myth presents a testable description of actions and events that transpire beyond the scale of human perception. Practice with myth can expand the scope and depth of perception to encompass what it describes.
In the Gnostic method consistent with the Sophianic vision story, myth is the narrative that engages human awareness with the immense imaginative projections by the Divine -- to the point of interactivity with the very source of life, mind, and matter. Maya is not illusion, as is widely presumed, but the actual materialization of an imagined world, the "Dreaming of Vishnu." In visionary practice with myth, we awaken to reality as lucid dreamers. Doing so, we realize that we are characters living in a real-life 4-D movie sustained by immanent Divinity. In this perspective, human beings are not merely biological creatures produced by a supposed "creator god." We are biological creatures, real-life animals, for sure, and that is no illusion. Additional to that, we are a flesh-and-blood characters acting in a living dream, capable of direct interaction with the source of that dream.
In the particular Gnostic variant of Asian oneiric myth, the cosmic Dreamer of the human world on the planet earth is the Aeon Sophia, and she is herself the immanent Divinity embodied in this planet. She is the source and setting for our life, and her story is the framework for direction, providing a transpersonal aim for each and every single human individual. In the Mysteries the telestai taught the three Ss: source, setting story.
The Sophianic vision story of the Mysteries is a paramount creation myth of unique and exceptional features. It is the sole version of oneiric myth that enables individual members of the imaginatively gifted human species to engage directly with the origin of our species and of the earth itself. Sophianic myth is the only narrative in the entire inventory of world mythology that routes human NLP to the immediate cosmic source of life, mind, and sensation. Sophia, whose name means "Wisdom," is that source. In Gnostic cosmology, a Divinity of the cosmic level of Sophia, originating from the core of the Milky Way galaxy, is called an Aeon, "generator." Her honorific title is the Aeon Sophia. Generically speaking, the wisdom goddess. In familiar terms, PAM, the planetary animal mother. In ritual address, VV, "flirtatious lightning."
Every feature and plot detail of HerStory is vivid, palpable, and veracious, and all of it can be proven by the test of experience, including correlations to hard science -- given that hard science can really say anything correct about the natural world.
Wisdom loves the warrior because it is through the warrior that the Aeon Sophia recovers her original purpose and re-engages the Pleroma, the galactic center from which she emerged. She does so in an intervention scenario of the kind prefigured in the ten avatars of Vishnu. In other words, the Aeon Sophia eventually comes to appear and act in the dream she is dreaming. But due to the particular and anomalous conditions of her cosmological adventure outside the Pleromic core, the opportunity of the wisdom goddess to manifest in her own dream is hampered by special conditions that enmesh her deeply with humanity, her pet species, and bind her into undue preoccupation with the drama of the human world. The precise elucidation of these conditions belongs to the ongoing practice of the GNE, the Gaian Navigation Experiment.
The challenge Sophia faces right now -- namely, to effectuate her awakening in the lucid dream and assume self-navigation by her own power, free of blind capture by the celestial mechanics of the solar system -- can be understood by taking the ten avatars of Vishnu as a prompt, a narrative cue to her situation. She is not Vishnu and no literal equation of cosmic agencies applies here. But something more fascinating is in play. Consider this plot-line:
The Sophianic vision story recounts events in the galactic center (Pleroma) prior to the emergence of humanity on earth, and even prior to the existence of the erath itself. Episode four of the sacred narrative describes how the Aeon Sophia and her consort Thelete (thel-eh-TAY) engineered the human design, the Anthropos. Once the phenome of this seminal plasm was calibrated with specific properties, the entire company of Pleromic Aeons (cosmic gods) projected it outward and embedded it in the nebular cloud M 42, the Orion Nebula. There it nested as a massive mycelium web in the Trapezium, a trapezoidal unit of young stars.
As the Aeons observed, filaments of the mycelium weave of the Anthropic phenome spread out in fine plasma-sheathed tentacles called linga-sharira,"long sheaths." The propagules of genomic potential carried in these plasmic filaments stretched across the galactic arm and germinated in favorable planetary settings, rather in the way a fertilized ovum germinates in the wall of a woman's uterus.
All in all, the Pleromic Aeons including Sophia and her consort Thelete, observed the Anthropic phenome germinate in nine world systems, giving rise to nine distinct planetary experiments with strains of humanity derived from the primary matrix embedded in M42. To their alarm, each of these experiments went badly wrong and ended catastrophically, without allowing the human strain in each case to develop to its full potential as defined by the sevenfold calibration of the human endowment set by Sophia and Thelete.
The Aeon Sophia is a young and prodigious Divinity -- at the time of witnessing these failed experiments, about 14-15 years old in Aeonic terms, compared to the "elder" Aeons who may be imagined as a team of veteran artist-scientists in ripe old age, going on sixty to seventy in human terms. The elder Aeons had seen numerous disastrous planetary scenarios, but Sophia had not seen so many, so far. Moreover, she herself acting in consort with Thelete had designed the Anthropos, so it was her experiments that were crashing. She witnessed these events helplessly, unable to change the course of events: as a young Aeon she was not practiced in the particular mechanism of cosmic order used by Aeons when they wish to intervene in an experiment underway, with the intent to correct it or guide it away from risk toward an optimal performance. Yet she knew of this practice of intervention and perhaps had seen it demonstrated.
As she considered the nine experiments with the Anthropos that went wrong, the Aeon Sophia engaged in an arduous process: she hypothetically inserted herself into each planetary setting and scenario, picturing how she would have set it on the right course, had she actually be able to intervene in medias res. But she was not really able to rescue these experiments due to her immaturity and lack of experience in Aeonic projections, setting up planetary experiments with the germinal plasm of sentient organisms. She could only rehearse the interventions that she wished to have performed in those nine experiments, in order to divert them from a catastrophic ending. These exercises were rehearsals of events in the past that she could not revisit or replay.
Following observation of the nine experiments, however, Sophia began to ponder a tenth propagation of the Anthropos in a planetary laboratory, a scenario that might arise in the future. Doing so, the Aeon applied all her passion (enthemesis) and her divine intention (ennoia) toward a future scenario in which she really could intervene, were the Anthropic experiment to go badly off course as it had done in nine previous instances. The future strain of humanity she pictured in this intervention scenario could be designated Anthropos-10.
Bacteria cultured in a petri dish: analogy to life-forms
The nine hypothetical interventions of the Aeon Sophia are like the nine incarnations of Vishnu in which the Dreaming God manifests in his own dream with a salvific effect. These mythical enactments are merely suggestions of massive events that transpired in the passive imagination of the Aeon Sophia, as she witnessed the disastrous outcomes of nine Anthropic experiments preceding the one currently underway on earth.
Docetic Form: Nirmanakaya
According to Hindu tradition, there is a tenth, future incarnation of Vishnu, called Kalki. This is not a cosmic event in the past, nor is it a hypothetical intervention that Sophia might have performed: it is a momentous happening in the present historical epoch, ongoing in real time. The coming of Kalki is the palpable, terrestrially enacted intervention of the wisdom goddess in life on earth right now.Nor did she anticipate other events that have profoundly impacted her situation, such as the arisal of the Archons and the separation of the sexes. In the current situation, her intervention is complicated by the fact that, when Sophia initially preconceived the intervention scenario, she did not realize that she herself as an Pleromic Aeon would embody the planetary setting where the experiment to be rescued was unfolding. Hence, the intervention to correct the experiment with Anthropos-10 now underway on earth cannot be achieved as she originally envisioned it. For the goddess to come to the rescue of humanity at the last minute, special conditions must be provided, coming in part from humanity itself....
Typical image of Kalki as a warrior mounted on a white horse
The highest challenge of the seer in Gaian Tantra is to read these conditions and prescribe the modifications required for the Aeon Sophia to achieve her original designs and purposes regarding the current experiment.
The seer discovers what common sense would infer: the wisdom goddess has to do "double duty." She must first continue her active immanent dreaming of the earth and all life that unfolds in the biosphere. Otherwise, all life on this planet down to the molecular levels would shrivel and collapse, literally overnight. At the same time, she must effectuate the intervention scenario as a discrete agent able to move and act her own dreaming, lucidly awake. She cannot merely descend from the galactic center in the routine manner of a Pleromic avatar, literally "one who descends." She cannot descend at all, because she is already here. Instead, she has to break out of immersion as a massive planetary body and manifest in the real time presence of a discrete agent, a character acting in that aspect of her Dreaming that interfaces with human history. She, who upholds all creatures, has to appear as some kind of creature, an animal form, or a character resembling a human being -- along the lines of a docetic body, a Nirmanakaya, to apply the Buddhist term. (Docetic is a Gnostic term: from Greek dokein, "to appear.")
Above we noted that Sophia has to do two things at once if she is to intervene in the divine experiment now underway. In the jargon of Gaian ecosorcery, this exceptionally demanding feat of double duty, working back and forth from Tonal to Nagual, is called duplex orchestration. Normally, a nagual who enters the Supernatural returns with magical knowledge and power which he or she then applies to the ordinary world, the Tonal, by a set of occult strategies or symbolic-dramatic enactments called orchestrations of fate. In this process, the sorcerer deploys the imaginative power of the Supernatural in the situations of ordinary life. Usually, orchestration proceeds from the Nagual to the Tonal, directed from the non--ordinary into ordinary life. Thus, the nagual of Gaian sorcery impacts ordinary life with powers and intentions and schemes drawn from the Supernatural, especially from the realm of the cosmic Shakti, the Divine Feminine. Gaian Tantric magic with the Shakti Cluster is a practice of orchestrating fate in this manner.
But a shaman/sorcerer can also perform this impacting tactic in the other direction, taking orchestration from the ordinary into the non-ordinary, from the Tonal into the Nagual. To do both simultaneously is duplex orchestration.
Due to the unanticipated conditions of the Anthropos-10 experiment, for which the Aeon Sophia is herself the setting (planetary habitat), the wisdom goddess must perform a feat of duplex orchestration, working both ways at once. But she cannot do so without a strategic degree of human participation. She can by herself bring the non-ordinary into the ordinary, orchestrating the Nagual into the Tonal. She can pour the beauty and magic of the Shakti Cluster into the atmosphere of the earth and into the collective psyche of humanity, purely by the autonomous force of her will, ennoia. And that is exactly what she is doing as she establishes the initial conditions of correction since March 2011. But she alone cannot bring the ordinary into the non-ordinary, orchestrating the Tonal into the Nagual. For that she needs a strategic degree of human coordination.
Understand this tricky proposition and you realize the dilemma facing the wisdom goddess in the challenge to achieve her pre-envisioned intervention at the precise moment when humanity faces maximum risk of annihilation, wiping itself out.
We are currently facing that exact moment.
The Second Kalki
According to Hindu tradition, Kalki signifies the male warrior aspect of Kali, a female deity who represents the wrath of the Cosmic Shakti or Divine Mother. Interesting concept, here: the male warrior aspect of a female warrior impulse. You may wonder if gender matters at all in such mythic propositions, or how it can signify anything of value to our understanding. May the terton assure you that, yes, it matters supremely.
Recall that human cooperation in Sophia's intervention depends on understanding the specific conditions of that event, seen in the perspective of her original preview in the Pleroma, before the earth existed. Due to the contrast between what she planned to do before the earth arose, and what she has to do now that she herself is embodied in the earth, the original scheme for intervention has to be adapted. How so?
Let's say that originally Sophia envisioned herself in a typical avataric descent as she had perhaps seen demonstrated by elder Pleromic Aeons. She would then take on a docetic form or nirmanakaya body. She would not incarnate through the biological process of reproduction, nor occupy a body that had been born in that manner. Aeons do not incarnate in that manner. In the docetic form, she would intervene in history as a single figure, the female warrior aspect of Kali -- but wait, that would be a woman. Kali is always depicted in female form.
But Kalki is to be understood as male, a figure of the masculine gender of our species. So what's up?
At this point it helps enormously to review the Andromedan version of the Greco-Latin myth of Perseus and Andromeda. In the classical version of that myth, the male warrior Perseus ("the one who destroys") rescues the chained woman, Andromeda. Here, the intervening hero is clearly male, the subject to be rescued, female. But that is a patriarchal spin on the version of the myth preserved for us in the contemplation of our Andromedan doubles, the control group of this, our terrestrial experiment.
In the Andromedan perspective, Perseus becomes Kali the female warrior form of Sophia, while Andromeda becomes humanity itself. This conversion of the classical myth indicates the terms of the original pact Sophia made with that strain of the Anthropos that she had envisioned in an experiment designed by her unilateral dreaming, without a consort. Perseus/Kali is definitely a female agent, according to those original terms. Corrected in the perspective of our Andromedan doubles, this male patriarchal figure turns into the female Kalki.
Who then is the male warrior aspect of Kali? Considering Sophia's need to adapt her intervention to the unanticipated conditions of her planetary embodiment, her rescue scenario requires a second Kali: this is Kalki of the male gender.
To comprehend this startling option, let's allow that the intervention originally presumed by Sophia must now, due to the unanticipated conditions of our experiment, be undertaken in two parts rather than one. Compare the current rescue scenario to that kind of glue that comes in two vials and only works when the chemicals in each vial are combined. The (female) Perseus/Kali agent of intervention can act alone, sure, but it cannot achieve its goal on its own: it requires a counterpart, a male warrior ally. This is the second Kalki. Sophia herself provides the originally intended figure of intervention, the first Kalki, in the form of a Nirmanakaya vehicle. By this strategy she can orchestrate from the Nagual into the Tonal.
But from the Tonal, the world of ordinary humanity, another player must be provided for her.The second Kalki enacts the reversing phase of Sophia's duplex orchestration, directed from Tonal to Nagual.
There is a subtle but all-important shift of strategy entailed here: dreaming from the Pleroma, Sophia pictured herself as Kalki, yes, but as a female-gendered agent of avataric potency. In the actuality of this historical moment, Sophia can manifest as that Kalki of her original dreaming, but to achieve her original aim, she requires the seconding of another power, the male Kalika warrior, the second Kalki. In other words, VV herself is Kali-Kalki of the female gender, seconded and assisted by a Kalika warrior of male gender. The presence and cooperation of the second Kali, embodied in the male warrior, is the unique adaptation that the goddess requires to achieve her intervention.
So who exactly is the second Kali-Kalki, the male warrior aspect of Kali? Be assured that is most certainly is not a single person, a single man living on earth. How do I know that with such certainty? Because the identity of the second Kalki can be derived from the clue contained in the mysterious name, "Andromeda." To the bafflement of scholars and mythologists, this Greek name means "who guards the man, or manhood." The Greek word andros means man, the masculine gender, contrasted to anthropos, humanity, comprizing both genders. The Greek word for woman is gyne.
Now it is extremely odd that Andromeda, the female "victim" to be rescued by Perseus, is called by a name meaning "who guards manhood." In that name looms a huge question: Who guards manhood? Who does guard manhood? What on earth does it mean to guard manhood, anyway?
Consider the granular detail of this myth, with particular attention to the gender-roles (of extreme importance, I must emphasize), and hold closely to the Andromedan version, and the riddle unravels: the female warrior, Kali, intervenes to rescue the one who guards manhood, but to do so she needs the assistance of a male warrior counterpart. Recalling that the one who guards manhood is humanity itself, do you now see the decisive twist in this plot? The decisive feat of strategy?
For humankind to be rescued by Sophia's intervention, Sophia as Kali must pair with a male warrior who is guarded by the very people to be rescued! In some manner, those people in the world today who "guard manhood" allow the male warrior counterpart, the second Kalki, to enact the crucial role of seconding Sophia in her modified rescue scenario. Run this plot in your mind a few times and, if you can get the hang of it, you will glimpse the terms of the fully modified intervention scenario as held in the contemplation of our Andromedan doubles.
Modern portrait of Lakota Warrior (K. Ferguson)
For our cooperation in Sophia's intervention, directing the Tonal into the Nagual, a lot depends on how we understand the identity of Andromeda, "who guards manhood." But wait, Andromeda is humanity itself! Yes, but not exactly. To be more precise, Andromeda is that part of humanity that guards manhood -- in other words, the part that honors honor, that keeps manhood alive, recognizes the true nature of virility and protects it from extinction. Manhood is the seat of honor and honor allows for the noble use of violent force in the cause of life, freedom, and beauty. If manhood is lost, humanity itself is lost from that particular side of our mortal equation, from the side of the male gender.
In the current moment when the coming of Kalki (Goddess to the rescue!) is immanent, the burning question before us is, Who among people living today guards -- preserves, protects, and fosters -- true manhood in the men of this world? It could be said that whoever does so, be it man or woman, belongs to "the Andromeda corps" of the human species. There you stand IF you recognize the honor of manhood, and act to uphold and preserve it. Not all human beings living in the world today belong to this class, the Andromedan corps. But those who do can literally and in a very real, historical sense be rescued by the men whose manhood they recognize and preserve.
In the current global scenario, it is primarily men who are charged with the task to carry out the orders of the globalist predators. If they stand down and refuse to carry out these orders, global catastrophe can be averted, stopped in its tracks. Men who carry out the agenda of the arch-predators act without honor, in a disgusting and dishonoring manner. But if a man chooses to act against orders coming from the authorities who aim to enslave and annihilate the human species, honor is restored. Of course, women in the chain of command directed by globalist psychopaths can also stand down, and some may do so now in a most decisive manner. But actions unertaken by the male archetype of honor (as pictured above) determine the crucial factor in the ultimate showdown.
The Kalika warrior archetype can also be enacted by a woman, and in some decisive instances right now may very well be... But all in all, it is the honor of men that will preponderantly decide the outcome of the present global nightmare. Now ask yourself, Where are the men of honor today? Who are they? And what are they doing to defeat the dishonorable and disgusting actions of the psychotics and psychopaths who have duped humanity into playing out their nightmare? Where are the real men in this world today? Do you know one? Are you one?
The granular detail of the Sophianic intervention narrative, especially the precision of its gender roles, clearly reveals that some people living today must recognize and guard true manhood if they are to be beneficiaries of heroic actions aligned to the wrath of Gaia, enacted by Kali. The Aeon Sophia needs the heroic action of men to achieve her intervention. But men have to be recognized in the enactment of their honor.
Eye of the Bull
To see the heroic in man and restore manhood to its rightful level of efficacy in the world today, is absolutely crucial to the great turnaround that looms before us right now, viewed with an extremely short window of opportunity. Women must come to recognize the heroic in man so that men can reclaim their honor and act in behalf of all humanity. Only with such recognition to guard them, can men succeed in counteracting the globalist psychotics and psychopaths, the intra-species predators who would drag the entire planet to ruin in their nightmare of deceit, division, and domination.
As now, so it was then. In the ancient past, before the rise of theocracy, the main instrument of patriarchal domination, priestesses of the Great Goddess tested men in the rite of sacred mating. The purpose of those erotic rites was to prove the vulnerability and tenderness of the man, especially his capacity for surrender. No man was deemed capable to be king or tribal chieftain who did not demonstrate total surrender to a woman in the throes of sexual pleasure -- no way of faking it!
Traditionally, men carry the responsibility to use violent force to protect life. This responsibility is the criterion of true manhood, by which honor is preserved. But for a man to preserve his honor, he needs the recognition of those whom he serves with honorable actions. In the deplorable situation of our time, members of the military and police forces have been brainwashed into the betrayal of honor in the service of "authorities" such as the federal government. Consequently, they do not protect humanity or their families and loved ones, as they may naively believe, but they protect those who intend harm, destruction, and death to most of the human race. Such is the tragedy of manhood in our time.
Kali is the wrath of the wisdom goddess: she is the first Kalki. The second Kalki is the reborn warrior spirit of humanity, rallied to support the wisdom goddess as she awakens in her own dreaming, so that she can achieve the intervention she predetermined for our current situation, the experiment of Anthropos-10, the tenth strain of human germ plasm in this galaxy.
In the current course of events, the Aeon Sophia remembers in her own way the sacred pact of woman and man commemorated in erotic rituals by her priestesses of old. As she does so, we of the human species face the rare and fleeting opportunity to recover the consecrating power of that pact, in our own way, on our own terms, here and now. And to remake the pact. In the spring of 2012, an omen appears in the evening sky toward the west, the conjunction of venus and jupiter. On march 19, the first anniversay of the ontset of correction, these two bright planets converge closely for all the world to see. High in the west, after sunset.
As the year proceeds, jupiter moves to conjunction with Aldebaran, the star marking the eye of the BULL -- late july into august. The BULL constellation is the supreme display of the erotic power and beauty of the earth goddess. Oddly, the BULL does not and never did represent masculine energy, macho power, or the brutal thrust of procreative loins -- nothing like that. It represents the empowerment of man through the Goddess, and for humankind. Not manpower on its own blind and brutal terms. Consider that distinction with great care, if you will.
Continuing into November, the lunar apogee (currently in the RAM) also reaches the BULL and aligns to Aldebaran. Hence, from March through November 2012, humanity faces the opportunity to enact a mythical ritual of consecration with the aim of recovering the honor of men. The Aeon Sophia herself would experience this event in a correlative phase of her recapitulation: healing the gender rift that she herself caused when she inadvertently sheared the Anthropos template.
Crew notes and talks posted on gaiaspora.org cover these developments in real time. As noted in a recent talk, rescue by the wisdom goddess is not comparable to any other such presumed act of divine intervention, typically found in the salvationist religions. In those scenarios, intervention is scripted from beforehand and carried out by the unfailing omnipotence of a male creator god. It cannot fail, it entirely prevails over all human activity, and it operates exclusively from a superhuman dynamic.
Not so with the intervention of the Aeon Sophia: it requires human participation to succeed, and it may fail, for even the Pleromic Aeons cannot guarantee its outcome.
