zed shiva iao lingua dei

appearing near you soon

a god of your own understanding

children listen to me

there is god

not a god not the god but god

he is kind enough to appear to you as you may understand him

my god is a he

he has a ravishing female consort

a gorgeous hot mama of cosmic proportions

why the beauty of her ass would stop universes in rotation!

i tell you one kiss from her would enflame eternal bolt uprightness

her exquisite motion her pleasured movements upon us

she comes down from heaven like black cat

she arcs in wonder as you bridge her skies

for an eternity then you fall through her cloud

you drown in all that rain within

high in the highest sky nevertheless you drown

my god is a masculine genius creator

he spits out universes

he fucks only the finest goddess

he shows me films he has made of her in my reverie

that is why my mind is blown

that is why i care only for sex and drugs and rocknroll

within these ecstasies i have found god again and again

fuck you blasphemer ! is anybody bothered to say?

but my stupid hedonistic theistic narcissistic carryon is a hoot

and i’m glad the god of your own understanding got me for the part

i am hamming it up for you now

i am a complex and warped structure

my monstrous superiority complex

my hideous inferiority complex

my self absorption my self loathing

between them have pulled me into this previously unfilled place (oooh er)

a raving compassionate ratbag raggletag rishi frooti

touched by god and goddess

loving and hating them

denying them believing them

my language is masculine and feminine

the two opposites that create unity

why would my god not be a man who loves women?

my god who knocks off little planets like earth

why he needs to relax with some right on pleasure or what?

well my god goes to his consorts place

and shes like getting herself ready ..and you know what i mean

and my god is relishing this because he can

and my god though he loves his consort very much indeed

it would be a joke to conjecture this love that could stop time

yet still he is her master still he is even her lord

though he now will serve her most diligently and ardently

and in becoming her servant he can relish serving his beloved

for this is the sweetest task

and he relinquishes his control and his crown for this time

for though he created all things that are

he did not create her

for she is eternal and  is his equal

but in some matters he must dominate

and in other matters it is her who must decide

he tends towards anger

she ameliorates this with galactic caress

he tends towards pride

but he finds humility in the wonder of her prowess

as i move through time god has hewn me into shape

i stand before you now as a messenger of my god

my god says look what my messenger has created for you 

so you can see he speaks my truth

my god says i have an important message for you :

everythings ok !

    my god exists somewhere in the Beginning
    way beyond this mortal shell of humanity
    and my god sits with other gods infinitely
    like shining starlight cascading and spinning
    into a beautiful bouquet of existence
    my god is both masculine and feminine
    my god is not masculine or feminine
    my god is beautiful, a blessed vision
    my god transcends our conventional wisdoms
    and leads me to brighter paths of understanding
    like when the world is cruel and taking prisoners
    mine floats down and rescues me from the iniquity
    and whispers in my ear to not take things too seriously
    and tells me to live and love unconditionally
    and to surround myself with positive energy
    and to learn from the trials that are presented
    and to remember, most importantly, my own divinity
    my god encourages diversity and abhors bigotry
    my god wants me to grow with courage and spontaneity
    my god is still looking for its own lineage
    my god still can’t quite figure out infinity
    my god has led me to places like the time being
    and other things that lift me from mortal suffering
    my god says this life will continue to be challenging
    until one day when i’ll understand and be more perfected

    Well, it’s different for men. Yes, indeed.

    The GOMU? No, you didn’t ask, but it’s a comment, so comment I shall.

    I cannot possibly understand how any “being” could love me THIS much.

    Enough for me to want to give back, in any way that I can.

    It’s a perfect arrangement.

    Oh, wait – that’s a bit like what you said, is it not??

    Lord (no pun intended), every time that I try to outwit you, SK, I circle back to your truth.

    Best to you and family, luv –

    You may have just started a dialogue that could go anywhere and flame out
    of control…I know you are at the controls. I just hope people out there understand
    that this blog entry of yours is entertainment and not to be taken…LITERALLY !!!

    After reading that ‘anonymous’ comment on your last blog that really went after
    Jesus and and and…honestly, I was surprised that one got thru. I just hope this doesn’t
    get out of control , off page, and become dangerous and hurtful. Because I let 5 totally different people read that comment from ‘anonymous’ on your EASTER BLOG and they each pictured that person with a cache of guns and explosives and ready to ditch the medication and and and …..WOW !!!!

    Unplug…Damage Control…..

    Wow !!!!

        From checking the time stamp of the post and picture, you were up b4 8am, and recently you shared some heavy personal stuff that would keep anyone up all night trying to find some type of answer or solution to the challenges in your life. So , I agree that you do appear tired. Hell, I’m the fuckn KING of insomnia…I don’t even look at clocks or wear a watch anymore because anytime would be a good time to get some sleep. And the comment about getn or being old. I saw you last year and you had more energy in 3 hours than iv seen people dispense in a lifetime. So , old- maybe a little bit , but you have aged gracefully considering everything. I just wish there was something we/I/anyone can do to assist you in this crissis.
        I hope that just ‘knowing’ that we are all here for you can give you the energy and will it takes to endure thru this chapter in your life.

        I am almost finished with Neil Peart’ s book about the roadtrip he began by himself and his motorcycle across Canada, Alaska, and beyond. He began this trip on my birthday , August 20th 1998. This book , written as a journal, was his beginning of the Healing Process after losing both his daughter and wife in 10 months. This is the only book that has made me cry several times because of ….I just really cannot describe it. I know you like Rush as a band and respect 4 decades of friendship and music by those 3 brilliant musicians. But this book is not about music , its about healing and finding the road back to yourself after unspeakable tragedy. I will mail you this book if you like. I think it will help you. It is a must read for anyone who has lost anyone, heck, this book is for everyone. It is inspiring, it is beautiful, it hurts deep inside when you read it, but we all know that Neil came out of his depressive state and Rush continues on. The book is titled ‘ GhostRider- travels on the healing road’ . It took me a very long time to begin reading this book because the day he began his journey , I lost a very close personal friend to alcohol ….I tried my very best I thought to save her. But she was just to far away from me to save and I blame myself everyday for not doing more for her. This will be the 3d time iv read and finished this book.

      BROKEN TOYS AND HEROS | 12 April 2012 at 2:26 pm #

      Hey ‘Anon’…
      I don’t know how long you have been reading SK’s blog(s). I do know that I have been a source, a target, a voice, of controversy…. and also called many names (some ok, some not so good). I do know this….some topics of discussion are openly, amazing to read all the different opinions/ POV of the many wonderful people who make up this community. I remember after one discussion, which became quite polarizing and than the comments turned to hurtful words and downright pure nasty….that Steve took a stance that some topics or subjects may actually be taboo and he was leaning towards treading carefully amongst his followers who are also his peers. Religion, Politics, War , and Race were finding their way into everyday blogs and conversations and some of it was just plainly getting out of control, like tearing open a can to only find worms inside. And for a long time, Steve monitored and probably deleted some comments that may enraged a specific class or group of people. I believe he did the right thing. At the beginning and end of each day, this is HIS website.
      If you are the ‘anonymous’ blogger who wrote that stuff about Jesus at the end of the Easter Wishes from Sunday, I do admire your zeal to openly voice your opinion. But with many ‘anonymous’ people posting as such, only Steve knows if it is really you, the rest of the readers do not. You or they could be anyone for that matter.
      So, its difficult to address you directly because you chose to stay…anonymous.
      But you can address me, because iv been here and will remain here til the last words are typed on this site. A good friend of mine from across the ocean came to my defense on some attacks against me in the past, and because of that, we have become good friends. He is a great musician with an excellent insight on any topic. He implored me to just “let it go and not take it to personal” when some of the madness in the past got simply out of hand. I greatly admire and respect his belief and I told him that I was thankful for his assistance…but I was not going to ‘let it go’ because they were attacking ME and my opinions…and I will not do that for anyone. Once an ‘anonymous’ person attacked Steve and his creditability and this person would pop up here and there just to attack Steve. Well, I had enough (so did many others) , but I can be vile and destructive with words and I tore that fucker apart with all the solid points of why Steve is admired and cared for by his readers, his far away friends. Steve thanked me and also kicked that fucknuckle hard, but he/she was already demoralized. And than I remembered what my new friend said and he was right, hell, he is right. We gather in this community to enjoy this site, the fantastic writings of SK and others (.) and to interact with each other from the four or more corners of this planet.
      If you chose to write about Jesus or Obama or whoever, that is okay with me, now. I guess I was just taken back by the tone of the comment, maybe others were too or have not gone back a day to read it.
      I only hope for you and everyone else to realize that ‘freedom of speech or expression’ does still exist but it has a price – unlike it did in the past , but maybe we should just chose our words more carefully. I just got off the phone with a friend who read what you possibly wrote, and was outraged and their blood was boiling. This friend has devoted their entire life to Jesus and Christianity and was furious , they donate all their free time to help others and encourage open dialogue. I talked them back from the rooftop and just said “At least they were brave enough to write or say something , even if you do not agree , I just wished that they (you) had done it from a different position, a position that would identify who you are instead of remaining behind the curtain or deep in the crowd as just another anonymous ….whoever. And if you would have been a bit more sensitive to the possibility that what you wrote may hurt someone, hurt them greatly as you did my friend, who ended our phone conversation with very negative words about you as a person, I quickly corrected them…reminded them of their faith and that…yes….we are all human ….which makes us all even more amazing.

        chill bro!
        someone’s just figured-out how to press the buttons that provoke you,
        and many others too….
        debate is an important human tool, using it we learn and grow, we get a different ‘take’ on things, another angle to approach issues from.
        faceless, nameless opinions are worthless.
        you can only be a valid part of this process if when you have something contraversial to say you have the guts to reveal yourself….

        this guy just wants to hurt and offend, hit and run style.
        he has nothing of worth to say.
        so don’t listen!
        much love to all,
        it’s gonna be a great day…….

        Hi Dazza. I know Steve doesn’t like us debating with each other, so I’ll try to be brief. I’ve been here for years and remember the all crap that used to go on: the Wag winding Steve up at every turn, Barry the troll with his constant abuse and attempts to stir it by pretending to be other people, etc. Which is one reason why I never return insults or rip the piss or try to piss people off. Andy’s way in these things is the right way, I agree!
        None of this stuff is new though: Albert Schweitzer, the great Christian missionary, believed that Jesus’s teachings were delivered in the expectation that God would intervene in the world within a very short time. And that Jesus thought his sacrifice would be the trigger for God to stop time, hence his despair on the cross when it didn’t happen. ‘Missionary’ can carry dubious connotations these days, but Schweitzer was an anti-colonialist who espoused ‘reverence for life’ and his faith inspired his work taking medicines to Africa, during which he saved literally tens of thousands of lives. But he didn’t ignore the fact that Jesus had been wrong about God’s intervention in the world. Or about returning to instigate the kingdom within the lifetimes of the first generation of his followers.
        As you’d Iexpect, I don’t know anyone of the calibre of Scweitzer but I do know people, like your friend, who say they’re Christians and who actively try to help others and live good lives according to the teachings of Jesus. Unfortunately, I’ve also encountered far more people who claim to be Christians but have no love whatsoever for humanity and hope that Jesus will return with ‘fire from heaven’ to lay waste to us ‘sinners’.
        This disparity has been evident for thousands of years now and is reflected in the clear difference between St. Paul, who stated that all the good works in the world were nothing if you didn’t worship the Risen Christ, and Jesus’s brother, James the Just, who said the opposite: without good works, faith amounts to nothing.
        There’s no getting away from it though: Jesus did compare non-Jews to ‘dogs’. It’s right there in both Mark and Matthew. A Canaanite gentile asked Jesus to exorcise her daughter and he refused because ‘It is not right that the children’s bread should be thrown to the dogs’. There, quite clearly, Jesus stated that his teachings were for the Jews alone, not ‘dogs’ like us. The fact that this line survived into the Christian gospels, despite being totally at odds with the agenda of the early Church (the evangelical early Christian Church, not the Jerusalem Church that was formed by the Jewish followers of Jesus and who didn’t believe that Jesus was divine), suggests to me that it’s an authentic saying.
        In fact, Jesus did heal the woman’s daughter but only after she pleaded that even dogs were allowed scraps from the master’s table – there’s an argument that this is why the line was allowed into the Gospels, as it showed that faith was possible even for non-Jews. But that’s enough, I think: don’t want to hijack this any further.

          Did anyone really READ what I wrote….

          Here , I will explain it again…..

          Anon, Andy : I wrote that I admired Anon’s zeal but just wished that with something that important to write or say …. to come “out of the crowd” and let yourself be known…..I even defended you to a friend I have known all my life who WORKS for and in a church of Christ…. I did that because ….new found friends , such as Andy, some time ago opened my mind to that.

          Read it again please, that’s all I said. I didn’t hash on Anon, I just asked to be gentler with some words, maybe an approach, that’s all. Really….read it again. I am okay. I’m perfectly fine, I’m not provoked, I just applied a subtle opinion about the ‘ comment’ . Was it long, well…yeah…most of my stuff is. I write alot , I have apologized for that in the past. And I will do it again. I’m sorry, I never attacked anyone, and to be honest, I didn’t believe Anon was attacking me.

          Everything is cool…Peace …..I had to stop quite a bunch of friends of mine from jumping onto this website, onto this topic, and create a real firestorm…some may not have listened and their attack on Anon may he very brutal, they do not like that a site like this would openly allow someone to view opinions about Jesus that ‘they’ thought was disrespectful and incorrect. I had to apply what YOU helped ME with Andy, “to just let it go”.


          Please Re-Read the entire exchange…..

Oh forget change rooms. 18 and over allowed in the adult section of course. The old change rooms will become confessionals and of course all will be forgiven. Quite miraculous really.

    And then the dawning truth
    searing the flesh
    clutching the mind
    pushing aside the detritus collected from a world
    as thin as translucent skin.
    Beneath is found the heart
    and the reality that grips the soul
    and won’t let go.
    We turn aside and see what has always been there
    if only we’d looked
    and really seen
    Life beyond
    Love within
    Hope abounding
    The scales fall from our eyes
    And we step into the light.

    hey anon did ya see this :
    not that I expect it to change yer life or anything but just offering another view.

    I don’t take any offense to anything you have said, you are just sharing your view of things and I don’t think you intend any offense either.

    I think you are stuck in taking things in the bible literally which are meant symbolically, often the conundrum is working out what it symbolically means.

    Of course, you can take or leave the idea I’m presenting here, that’s fine.

    I agree though that the real church is probably not the one founded hundreds of years after Jesus died.

    All the best.

    I never thought of god as an old bearded man in the sky worrying about my every move. But I see god around me every day. The seeds that grow into flowers. We exhale carbon, trees drink it in. Watching the birth of my children or any animal for that matter. A thunderstorm. Plants getting drunk on sweet rain. etc We are all so insignificant yet of the highest significance. A small portion of the magnificent life force. Soak it in. Carpe diem my friends.

    Steve, speaking of God, where do you stand on aliens and alien abductions? I’ve been researching this for many years and I’m coming to the conclusion, against every fiber of my being, that yes they are “real” but they ARE NOT extraterrestrial (no ET phone home). They are fallen angels as described in the bible and a tool of Satan to deceive the world. They are more “interdimensional” than physical yet able to come into our physical reality. Based on so many reports by abductees of these entities constantly lying and deceiving, it’s all starting to make sense. The “alien” hybridization program that is apparently going on also relates to the bible’s description of fallen angels mating with human women to produce hybrids. All this media “conditioning” (UFOs/aliens in books, movies, etc.) by arguably the New World Order/Illuminati seems more a great deception of what’s really going on rather than a conditioning process so we won’t be shocked if/when world governments announce that space aliens exist. Any thoughts?

          it was directed at all
          you can do this stuff on social networking
          i respectfully ask everyone to try to keep their comments pertaining to that particular blog
          i invite you all to comment freely
          i value and consider everyones take
          i dont mind negative criticism either …if it is not crude stupid or hateful
          not everyone who reads my blogs wants to hear about the ongoing events in commenters lives
          i think it has drifted off course a bit
          lets stay on track and that track is relevance to what i just wrote
          i am not a moderator i am a poet

            I am guilty of what you are describing….
            I apologize if I disrupted the pathway of this blog, your blog….
            I know for a fact that many of these social networks have large
            flaws in their security system that is very open to hackers and a
            subculture who only want to do harm to others with gossip, constant
            hacking and security/identity issues…..
            I had a friend working IT in a large company – prove that to me.
            He also reviewed your sight and believed it was oddly safe because it
            has a specific audience and a moderator who can control the info
            presented on screen- simply by editing , which….of course …you have done.
            I will curtail my enthusiasm and personal matters, I misread that over a
            pretty extensive period of time, many of us had become a community, a family,
            brought together by a specific cause, a certain person.
            I am sorry , again, I -as Andy said- ….I felt that a human connection was made
            beyond the ‘rules’ of a blog universe such as this one.
            Coldly, it won’t happen again….

            I was wrong to think after a unique period of time, discussions, ridicule, humor , compassionate well wishes, real human emotions-believeable———-
            and the presentation by so many of their lives beyond just replying to the
            poem of the day. Heck, I have learned new languages and dialects and some fascinating history lessons. Maybe you did create a ‘monster’ (but now you can take back complete control of it)……. or just a monster in a specific group of us. Where I come from and was raised, when strangers reach the point with other strangers, over time , to share much more than simplistic, ritual-listic behaviors and anecdotes….and even assign nicknames and share share very personal stuff openly…..
            Its called becoming friends.

        i know daz ‘n davidP have ‘banged-on’ a bit about this but
        without this faceless geezers interjections none of this hassle would occur.

        your’e right sagely one…..this is not a forum.
        it’s your blog.
        AND a community….you created this monster!

    yeah, I banged on a bit to anonymous
    not something I always do
    thanks for the guidelines steve
    of how you want things to run here
    well the god of my understanding
    is beyond sex, beyond gender
    and sent a ray of itself out
    the ray divided
    into positive and negative forces
    from which the neutral force was born
    male, female and christic forces
    this created all the dimensions
    and life erupted into the physical plane
    god then sent parts of himself out, Beings or Monads
    those parts descended down through the dimensions
    leaving parts of themselves behind in each dimension
    what we have in this physical body in this 3 dimensional world
    is an essence, a divine spark of our individual Being
    the process of enlightenment, of the spiritual work
    is to go through that process of creation in reverse
    and rejoin with those spiritual parts, awakening psychic faculties etc
    there is a consequence whether we do and whether we dont
    eventually the wheel of samsara turns
    we get multiple lives to achieve this but they run out
    admittedly a lot of the above is just theory to me
    and not from my direct experience
    but I do feel that essence within (do you sk? i reckon you do)
    and I’ve experienced some mystical things
    I am a work in progress, as we all are
    I think the thing is to make a masterpiece out of your life

    I have to agree with you drawing the line, Steven. No more commenter poetry, listen to my band, lets do an ep, feel my pain, my dad was an alchy, my kid’s crook, hey steve do you like my painting, etc. You should also go back to enforcing one comment per person: it’s your blog dude, it SHOULD be about you.

    Not only do I feel we each have a god of our own understanding, but that we also each have a god of our own creation. We each choose the god we want. Have you ever heard someone say “I believe in god, but don’t agree with anything he/she/it requires?” For some god is the god/gods/goddess/goddesses of whichever organised religion they follow; for others it’s an amalgamation of several gods/goddesses from several religions; for yet others it’s more scientific processes of life. Your god is very reminiscent of those from ancient mythology…and I would be shocked if he wasn’t…you clearly love and have long been drawn to that. Of course you’re going to want a bold, masculine, horn dog of a god!

    I’ve never been able to accept the concept of a god with human attributes. I mean — “worship me or you go to hell” etc, etc. wah wah wah me me me…. What a fucking bitch! I’ll be damned (yeah…I know… lol) if I’m going to worship some petty manipulative narcissistic drama queen. There are enough of those to deal with in real life. I can usually deal with human flaws and weakness in humans, but not in a god. I know it’s not your thing, but I find the idea that we evolved from whatever crawled or slithered out of some mass of ooze pretty elegant. Whereas a god who planned and created this world and all in it feels too much to me as if he is some psychopath playing a cosmic Sims game and we’re all his game pieces, when I think of life arising and developing from an oozing mix of raw materials on it’s own I can’t help thinking this is world is FUCKING AWESOME!!! It doesn’t make it less amazing or awe inspiring to me that no one planned it out — it makes it more so.

    My god tossed the raw ingredients together and continued on somewhere else (creating the beginnings of life somewhere else perhaps…. 😉 ). Everything else is up to us.

    if you want the truth about GOD here it is…

    “GOD is a three letter word”

    what the word implies is however by nature beyond definition.

    discussions about g.o.d. are really comparison shopping.

    How much is yours more like mine?

    Hence the battle of definition,
    and quite the battle it is…

    Despite its prowess, human language is itself a limitation…

    Hence the mind of god can not be spoken or explained in words…

    Just a small catch 22

    we do the best we can do and that’s it… the rest who knows…

    Not me…

    old? tired? whatever!…
    when i first saw that photo my most immediate reaction (yeah that barely formed semi-thought, semi-feeling arising god knows where half a millisecond after the exposure, mocking logic and sometimes even common sense, though it’s sometimes your only chance at glimpsing the innermost truth… ok, i’ll lay down the crack pipe :-P) was —– damn he looks good! — then i read the comments and as i read on the voice faded… oh fuck you all, don’t wanna hear it!!! where’s that pipe again…?
    steeeeeev you magical creature, shine on — keep bringing the holy water to the thirsty ones — for you are one who knows where to find it… and we pay with our undying love — it that’s a fair price…
