on Legions of Light / Armies of Darkness
Date: November 19, 1999
Thanks for baring your soul in your magnificent Legions of Light presentation: I love you unconditionally as my true friend and co-worker for the Truth…
There are so many emotions touched upon — executed with piercing pathos — that I, lebeau, can scarcely decide how or where to begin. Let me just say that both The Back Left Corner of Heaven as well as Genetic Legacy left a superior effect on my soul/spirit… Xenophobic was also an extraordinary expression of your poetic use of words.
I was touched by your candidness and believe I have intuited the situation. I have felt the pain of not being able to completely harness that of whom I loved — and it caused me much, much pain… whatever… true growth comes with much pain.
As busy as I am and distracted by some serious stuff, I made it a point to read the whole book. WOW! You set the scene in fine fashion in the last stanza of Journey To The Center: // a battle of old and new realms // with the taste of fresh desires // thought dead so long ago.
I like the way you expressed the feeling to the “Father” in My Assassins: // He who graces // Himself // with my spit // The realization of my obsession // emanates // in unseen freedoms, //
And in Making It: Angels begin to cry // everytime // a friend succeeds – // I die a little // } Apt expression for the Kingdom of Man.
In Revival I loved the depiction of the Vigilante Patriarch: // false God rotting // in the stains // of my enslaved corpse // } Boy – are you ripe for going from death to the Kingdom of Man to the true beauty of the Kingdom of God! Excellent. This process is keenly manifested in the Gospel of Thomas!
In THE CALLING section, I loved both Communion and Confirmation: by describing yourself as // the mere moth // entombed // among catacombs, // To the flame // I plunge, // Phoenix and Mantis, // mating eagles to doves // speaks volumes. I have had an “eagle” synchronicity recently (cr: attached ‘chit-chat II’ with eagle note… I wish you could have been there but I know you and Janet were on a mission).
Plus, the juxtaposition: Caesars, // prostitutes of Yaldobaoth // I am – // honesty, // humanity’s birthright, // the fool // who employed // Lucifer… // } Don’t worry Rick – you woke up; besides, as you said later: you are doomed to perfection.
Your brilliance really comes to the fore with THE HORSEMEN COMETH. I loved just about everything in this section… for example, the whole of Xenophobic is a masterpiece:
// a forbidden planet, // } How apt an expression a la Melville’s ocean ruled by Moby Dick.
// your agendas filling // Mother’s breast // } My mother god damn it!!!
// with snapped bones, // skeletons // of her children // } Magnificent!
// How natural // your grin // upon the infant’s // chain addiction // } Boy, did you nail the imagery here.
// talons of the // global oppression // The gridlock of Marshall Law // } Armies of Darkness… yes, yes, yes – who are about to try to crush me via IRS lien on my salary. 😦
// chain not my vision // not my spirit // } Amen Rick!
Note: I had a synchronicity while reading Sexism on phrase // Eye to eye //; I heard on my audiotape Clannad (of which I had several synchronicities). It was the phrase “close my eyes” [Time 9:06am on Nov. 17th]. Maybe your eyes are now budding to open before they blossom to full gnosis since you need to wring out the necessary fertilizer and wash yourself until you are fully clean… allusion from tractate before “Book of Thomas, the Contender” (cr: p.194 in the Nag Hammadi, “Exegesis of the Soul”). Believe me, I was guided to the page since I only remember the simile — not where it was — guided divinely because this was an important statement in the Nag Hammadi. Meditate on…
I liked the way you referenced Enki and Enlil** in Nationalist as the twins of Arrogance and Chauvinism } These were our parental links?!? No wonder the Kingdom of Man is all screwed up! (**inferred by David Icke as reptiles in The Biggest Secret and therefore criticizes Sitchin for not going far enough.) 😦
Wouldn’t it be interesting if the “Mother” you were linked to is the very insect-like ones alluded to by Karla Turner in Into The Fringe, now looking to overcome the Patriarchy of Reptiles?!? Thought for the day…
So I see your poetry as a reflection of Total Reality, reflected beautifully in My Accusers where:
To my right, // Sitchin… godfather, // } Curious imagery.
// my left, // Sagan… laughingstock, // } Nag Hammadi references… Testimony of Truth… 2nd Treatise of Great Seth.
// in front, // a sea of riots // (Note: Sagan = Nagas; another John the Baptist controlling Jordan flow of knowledge.) Your poetry is sending me to other levels, like The Back Left Corner of Heaven — I loved this poem — yet Death brings New Life. 🙂
Lastly, my other favorite — Genetic Legacy — as part of the whole fittingly called INTO THE FRINGE. The // English Ivy // } spreading like the horn of the Heifer of Ephram… the Manifest Destiny of the Kingdom of Man (cr: the Evolution of Israel by deWelden and ‘chit-chat I’ at MUFON).
// the Mantis, // her seeds laid // in lush pastures // } ready to bud the blossom.
// starborne healers // of biological evolution // } Cool… real cool!
My epilogue to Rick;
Your brilliance as an artist/poet may only be outweighed by a remark from Shakespeare [enlightened Freemason, blue-blooded nobleman of suspicious origin]:
“He loved not wisely but too well…”
In short Rick, hopefully, you have been fully christened into new awareness so now the Butterfly of your Essence will fully emerge — I know you will do it!
Love from your good friend
with a Rebel’s Righteousness,
