My intention with AIDS Shaman 2: Through the Veils is threefold
To encourage more conversation about CONSCIOUSNESS, the thing that we all have in common, the thing that we are – also the thing that the collective belief system of the modern world – science – has so little to say about. Although quantum physics is revealing the same truths proposed by mystics since long ages past, there are some scientists who try to prove consciousness is a by product of the material evolution, ignoring the millennia of research into the deep, true nature of existence by the many proud and profound spiritual traditions of the world.
To expand awareness of the role that same sex erotic love and gender-variance has played in the spiritual life of the species – among shamanic tribal peoples, the ancient pagan faiths of the Middle East and Europe, and also in the sexually repressed father religions too – and so encourage conversation about the roles of queer people in the world today, as we stand up for our rights and grow to discover the power in our queer spirit.
To inspire more communion with the dead, our ancestors (who are so much closer than we think), to celebrate them, and through knowing them finding the strength to release our fears about dying and open to a bigger, brighter understanding of our own being and the joy of being alive.
My hope is to get people thinking, talking and growing.
The mysteries of consciousness are ours to explore:
we are each the inheritors of everything that has gone before.
UPON A TIME
the worlds lived together
was no separation between matter and spirit
talked daily to the dead
the trees, the plants, the animals
remembered to honour the faerie elementals
who kept nature in balance.
was the Roman Emperor, not the Church
eradicated reincarnation from the Christian worldview
priests seized the spiritual power that had long belonged to the
women, transgender and queer peoples,
priests claimed to hold the keys to heaven:
of ecstatic rites that brought people in touch
went to church to hear the preacher
them God could only be known after death
only if they obeyed the Church’s rules in life…
The biggest threat to the military industrial complex
the people remembering that I am another You
You are another Me:
through the lies, all the way to infinity.
we think we know will change –
can live multidimensionally
the dance of synchronicity
the knots and blocks in our souls
the remembrance of ONENESS our greatest goal
again the holy Whole
one of us has a role.
CAME TO US TO BE
END OF DISEASE
GATEWAY TO ETERNITY
is my message and I will say it over and over
IS NO DEATH
IS NO SEPARATION
time has come to break down the old paradigms
defeat the darkness that grips the world
time has come to birth a new humanity
puts love, cooperation and peace at the centre of the play
world is gripped by darkness and fear
the solution to all our woes has always been here
in our hearts.
“The position that gay people take in society, the function we so often choose, is that of mediator between worlds….. In a tribal environment, this means shape shifting into wolves, birds, stones, wind and translating their wisdoms for the benefit of the people of the tribe… in the long patriarchal history that has gradually enveloped the world’s people, the gay function has been to make crossover journeys between gender-worlds, translating, identifying and bringing back the information ……..gay culture is always on the cusp of each intersecting world or way of life, on the path between one world and another.”JUDITH GRAHN
can open the gates to heaven,
part of what gay sex is actually for
the grand scheme of creation –
what we were honoured for
pagan temples around the world,
phallus was the symbol of God,
body was holy in the age of the Goddess –
temple of the spirit divine
the task in the 21st century
is to renew this understanding for this time.
AIDS Shaman Books 1 and 2 are available in print and ebook versions from
hiding in temples, then theatres,
monasteries, molly houses
we knew all along
our time would come again.
In Mesopotamia, in the temples of
the God Enki created the Galla, the
name means penis-anus,
priests made to serve the Great Goddess
of Love and War
In Turkey we were Gallae, serving Great
Mother Cybele for millennia,
spreading into Greece, Rome and around
long haired, bejewelled, loud and
leading ecstatic, raucous celebrations
for hundreds of years:
beloved of the people and feared by the
crushed to extinction by the Christians
in the 4th century –
but the Jewish Kings were at it first –
over 1000 years before…
in Palestine we were Qedesha, Anointed
Ones, and sodomy was our service
in the temples of Asherah, we were
rounded up and massacred.
Muslim leaders did the same, wiping out
goddess worshipping people
and her genderqueer priest/esses as
they spread the
dictatorship of the Father God.
YET HERE’S THE THING…..
A sacred black meteorite was worshipped as Cybele’s symbol in her temple in Anatolia for thousands of years
and was brought to Rome in 200 BCE,
installed with great fanfare in a new temple
as the Magna Mater was welcomed as the official deity of the Roman Empire.
She was served by the genderqueer Gallae priest/esses who spread her worship across the whole Empire, Cybele was loved as the Great Mother from Turkey to Britain, across north Africa as well as southern Europe, and her long-haired, bejewelled, loud and lewd queer priests were loved by the people, feared by the authorities because of the wild, sexual and bloody dionysian-like ritual celebrations they threw.
This Goddess religion was the major rival to Christianity – and the Church adopted a fiercely homophobic attitude to distance itself from the hated pagans. But its priests had to be celibate, because priests were not expected to have partners and children (they’d always been gay), and the Pope adopted and still wears the mitre headdress of the arch-Gallus, the High Priestess of Rome.
When Rome collapsed the Great Mother’s holy stone ‘disappeared’
But a sacred black stone, which “came down from Jannah (Paradise).” (At-Tirmidhi, Sunan, hadith no. 877) was installed by Mohammed at the Kaaba in Mecca not long after, in 605 AD –
this oldest mosque itself was placed on
the site of an ancient pagan temple –
and to this day, Moslems flock to visit
that may well be the meteorite held
sacred to the Mother Goddess for many millennia.
Note too that in India the great god Shiva, who is both male and female, is worshipped as a black phallic rock, the shiva lingam.
