I decided that there was no way that I would do another blog on Jesus or his counterpart, Satan. But what I would do is a second part of the blog on “I do believe that Jesus was a Vampire”. That way I cannot be accused of dedicating two whole Blogs to bashing Christians or their belief system. Not that I was bashing them in the last blog. I was simply pointing out some obvious flaws in current Christian belief systems. Don’t worry, my dear and beautiful Christians! You aren’t the only ones that I will do this with. Indeed, over time I have been known to piss almost everyone off because I point out the flaws and inconsistencies in religious dogma All…The…Time. And I also do that with other forms of dogma, because dogma exists in everything from right wing Christianity to Science and also in Shamanism (no, we are not immune to the disease of dogma…a fact that also pisses off some of my shamanic colleagues whenever I point this out to them as well!). The point is that there are times when something stares us right in the face and unless we allow ourselves to actually observe what is going on, we may be completely snowed and end up as hypnotic pawns on someone else’s chess board!
Case in point: A few years ago I was having coffee with my daughter, at Starbucks in the mall. Now this particular Starbucks is across the hall from a London Drugs. There are tables and chairs set up in the hall to provide some seating for the Starbucks customers, if you can stand the cold blasts of arctic air that comes in through the main doors as people come and go.
As I am sitting waiting for our coffee (my daughter, being the dutiful daughter that she is, said that she would bring them when they got made and I could find us a table) I cannot help but notice that there is a huge big screen T.V. outside of London Drugs. It is on so that passers buy can see what a clear picture this screen provides as a sales gimmick that the store has at Christmas time…and pretty much any other time of the year as well but with different displays and, let’s face it, electronics really sell at Christmas. I think that this is because once electric Christmas tree lights were created people got all addicted to anything colourful that flashes brightly. This may be also why some men get addicted to watching strippers with neon pasties twirling around as they perform their “dance”.
Anyway, I was noticing that the program on the big screen was one of an opera performance by Pavarotti and two other tenors. I think that is a thing. I think that they call them the “Three Tenors” or something, but I am not sure because, frankly, I hate Opera music. That, like “Country Music”, is a contradiction in terms. So my daughter sits down and the volume on the T.V. somehow gets turned up. That is when I became very aware that Pavarotti is perhaps the Devil!
As the “music” plays, suddenly all the men who are passing by stop, walk up to the T.V. and just stand there, watching…..aimlessly…..watching…..in total fricken trance. Men from the food court further in the mall started leaving their tables and joining the growing hoard of men gathered around this display of big screen T.V. and male opera music. Some of them brought their small sons with them….kicking and screaming…at least until they heard the singing on the T.V. Suddenly all the boys were also entranced and completely oblivious to anything else existing in the entire world. It reminded me of stories of the pied piper!
I am watching this and thinking, “OMG! WTF is going on here?” My daughter sees my face and asks me “What?” and I say, “Look at what is happening over there…” so she turns and sees it. She turns back to me and says, “What the hell??” I look at her and say, “They are entranced.” It was creepy and we both agreed that it was one of the creepiest things we had seen in a mall since the display of reptiles a few years back. In fact, the reptiles held NOTHING compared to this!
So the song went on for what seemed like about 10 minutes or more. It ended in a huge crescendo and by this time I am really, Really, REALLY wishing I had the remote to shut that crap off. But as soon as it ended the entire group of men (now around 50 or 75 of them) just stood there for a moment, then “came to”, looking at each other like they were in a mixture of “OMG! Was that the most beautiful thing you have ever heard in your entire life?” and “What the hell just happened to the last 10 minutes of my life? I have missing time, man!” They disbanded and wondered off with a glazed look in their eyes and were completely drained in their energy, which I could see because I see energy systems.
This has led me to believe that only something sinister could pull that off and it must be that Pavarotti is the Devil! I was also wondering what subliminal messages were being transmitted and wondered if I should take my daughter out of the mall before the whole band of Merry Men began pillaging the entire mall! I overheard one boy ask his dad, “Daddy, who was that man singing?” and his dad replied with, “That was Pavarotti and his is pretty much a God among Opera singers.” That nailed it. He was now deifying Pavarotti, which I think was the intent of the entire concert! I then knew for sure…..Pavarotti must be the Devil!
Now a lot of people will get all up in arms by what I have just written. Understand that this was indeed a creepy event and that to witness something like that tends to send chills up and down the spine and make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end. Am I supposed to just ignore the event and write it off as “normal” with a mild dose of “interesting”? You know I would never do that. To ignore such an event and go into denial about its weirdness would be against all ingrained habits of a shaman. We are supposed to notice things. When we don’t then we are not staying true to our own consciousness. Denial is nothing more than a really big river in Africa, after all, so when one witnesses something like this it is important to observe. Now the conclusions that I have drawn are, admittedly, somewhat comical and not very likely….I think….or perhaps I am wrong about that. I would need further exploration and analysis of the effect that Pavarotti has had on the male psyche over the many years of his career to be able to definitively say that he is indeed the Devil. But so far my observational analysis has me leaning toward that conclusion. Call me crazy. Many do! But that just might be the determining factor of whether or not we survive the Apocalypse! Those of us who notice things and make mental note and then respond accordingly tend to be the ones who survive such events!
I am sure that all the many Pavarotti fans will think that I have completely lost my marbles. And his family will likely be extremely offended at my humour and my possible conclusions. But I have to say that I have seen NOTHING have an effect on a large group of men like this before, especially when they have no idea who each other is. Yes, sure, if it is at a sports event or something large groups can be moved. But this was in the middle of the mall. Total strangers were completely entranced. They became part of a hive mentality. I am sure that if someone issued the command, “Fire!” they would have all gone to arms and begun firing off guns everywhere. And if someone said, “here, put this bomb on and go stand over there,” they just might have. As long as Pavarotti was singing, they would have done ANYTHING they were told. Now, this is also a clue for wives out there (at least the ones who can stand Opera music). If you want your guy to do ANYTHING you tell him to, just put on Pavarotti. Have it playing in the background. He will become so docile that you will have him eating out of your hand in NO TIME AT ALL. Well, unless he is a man like me, who absolutely hates Opera music. But if he is not, then you have an in. Suggest diamonds. Suggest opulent gifts of any sort. Heck, suggest he cleans all the bathrooms….naked. He will do it! I am sure. You don’t even have to sign your name in the Book of Satan in your own blood. Just put on Pavarotti. Try it. Let me know how it works for you. I am itching to have more case studies so that I can prove my hypothesis that Pavarotti just might be the Devil!
Once again, this blog was designed to slip in some shamanic teachings in the guise of being about something else entirely. What were they? Let’s review:
- Notice things and do not go into denial about them.
- There is a hive mentality that can be accessed through subliminal suggestion.
- Never deify a human being. That is what has led to so many cults in the “religious” world and eventually to so many people who are willing to kill others for those “causes”.
- Things are not always what they seem. Something that looks and sounds beautiful could actually have sinister motives.
- Never be afraid to contemplate some theory that “sounds” crazy, because that is often how we get to the actual truth of the matter.
- Dogma exists EVERYWHERE, so buyer beware!
- Country Music and Opera Music are contradictions in terms. But that is just my never to be so humble opinion on that matter. I thought that I would include it here just to drive that point home, no matter how shamanic or non-shamanic one might find that point.
- Christmas displays with flashing lights are dangerous…on many fronts…even in the form of pasties.
There. You are welcome! LOL
