Charles Manson Is In The World


8:13

“Charles Manson is in the world.

Charles Manson is in the world.

Charles Manson is in the world.

In spite of what you think.

In spite of what you say.

In spite of what you do.

And in spite of what you pray…” CM

NIKOLAS SCHRECK | “MY SHIFT FROM DARKNESS”

Roosevelt Hotel Lobby

Roosevelt Hotel Lobby

I had the pleasure of officially meeting Nikolas in December of 2012, after maintaining a long distance relationship since our initial meeting on 08.08.08. via telephone communication
(Charles thought he and I should meet, and so he gave me his phone number while I was visiting him in the hole, 2008).
A prior post here-
ATWA– an excerpt about “ATWA” and it’s inception prior to the terms “deep ecology” and “revolutionary environmentalism” (and prior to “Earth First!“), from Nikolas Schreck’s huge contribution debunking the “myth” of Charles Manson, “The Manson File – Myth and Reality of an Outlaw Shaman”– provides much needed insight into one of the many pieces of the whole, that is Charles Manson. Truths that hitherto had been mostly non-existent to not only myself, but to the public at large, Nikolas has illuminated through many years of insight. This work that Nikolas has shared with the world is a clear light- a warm wind which counters the cold winds of this dark age.

I hold the highest Regard and Respect for Nikolas, his teachings, his work, and his spiritual evolution over the years (Zeena’s as well).
I consider him a brother, comrade, and teacher.

And so, For All Beings, I wanted to share “Mehr Licht” (More Light) with a couple excerpts from Nikolas’ latest interview for the occult magazine, “Secret Knowledge”, with Nik’s permission of course.
“MY SHIFT FROM DARKNESS”: AN INTERVIEW WITH NIKOLAS SCHRECK,
BY GUS BRESLAUER
Excerpts used with permission from Nikolas Schreck
“Secret Knowledge” Vol. I

When asked how Nikolas feels “about the Westernization of Buddhism in our modern society”,
he answers, in part-
“…In the largely secular, materialist, individualist, “rationalist” West, Buddhist teachers have to start from scratch, teaching Westerners the ABC’s of what spirituality is, which wastes a lot of time and energy. And in order to appeal to minds programmed to believe that only what can be scientifically proven is valid, much of the magical supernatural aspect of Tantric Buddhism is downplayed in the West. Another thing that bugs me about Western Buddhism is how it caters almost exclusively to the privileged, spoiled and well-educated elite who can afford the time and money required to take a nice little spiritual vacation by attending the teachings held at ornate dharma centers in a comfortable atmosphere of snobbish self-congratulation. I’d like to see a more socially engaged and classless Buddhism made accessible to the street, to the disadvantaged and despised, to prisoners, the homeless, the terminally ill, where the antidote the Dharma offers is desperately needed. There are 84,000 Buddhist teachings for all types of temperament and lifestyle, but it seems to me that sort of approach would be more in keeping with the wild yogic Mahasiddhas who were the founders and masters of Tantric Buddhism in India and Tibet. If Tantric Buddhism in the West really seeks to free all sentient beings from suffering, it has to develop the skillful means to speak to areas of society it currently ignores. Another factor is that this is the Kali Yuga, the cyclical phase of spiritual degeneracy. The Buddha predicted that in the Kali Yuga, the Dharma would become increasingly less comprehensible to humans until it died out altogether for many thousands of years. It may be that the West’s embrace of egoic individualism, hypercapitalist materialism, non-stop digital entertainment via information overload, and atheist reductionism has sped up the Kali Yugic tendencies to such a toxic degree that only a very few can even truly grasp the Buddhist teaching at all, let alone practice it…”

When asked about Nikolas’ spiritual evolution, and whether his political stance has had a similar evolution, Nikolas answers, in part-
“… To the minimal degree that my political stance was ever understood by the public at large, yes, of course, that’s evolved over the years too. I’m still a monarchist who believes rulership must be guided by divine and spiritual authority rather than corporate-sponsored election by a mob or a dictatorship of the proletariat. But I no longer believe any kind of political system can address the deeper spiritual dilemma facing humanity. All efforts should be directed to ultimate liberation by spiritual practice rather than the futile Samsaric ups and downs of politics. What some mistakenly interpret as a mundane and political agenda on my part was actually an intrinsic facet of my spiritual quest in my exploration of how to change human behavior through magic. You mentioned the counterculture and that’s a good key to this quandary. My understanding that a truly comprehensive politics must be informed by a spiritual perspective, and isn’t simply a pragmatic matter of economics and social policy, comes from my upbringing in the late 60s and early 70s counter-culture. Back then, it was a common utopian belief in radical factions that a total revolution on every level was imminent, and that the entire social, spiritual, sexual framework of human existence would be drastically transformed by mass insurrection against the prevailing establishment values. I expected to be on the front lines of that civil war that unfortunately never happened. If you weren’t there, you can’t imagine how intensely this expectation of revolution was in the air. That revolutionary ideal was imbued with the 1960s magical revival and the sudden awareness of mystical experience mass use of psychedelics revealed. The best example of this magical politics was the ritual banishing and exorcism a collective of pacifist radicals performed on the Pentagon in October 1967. When Squeaky Fromme was accused of trying to assassinate President Ford in 1975, I thought, “Oh, good, here’s that revolution I’d been waiting for.” Now, I know you were expecting me to get into Hitler, not hippies, but there’s a strong similarity between the 1960s American counter-culture revolt against “The Establishment”, and the 1930s German counter-culture rebellion against what was called “The System”. They were both concerned with changing humanity at the root, making a new world, a sharp break with politics as usual, and they were both greatly focused on pioneering radical ecology and getting back to nature and the soil. And more importantly, they were both informed by magical, pagan, and spiritual ideals that few other political movements have ever been concerned with. What interested me about the history of the Third Reich wasn’t the political aspects, but the fact that several National Socialist leader’s planned to bring about a new religion in Europe once the war was won. While in Germany to research my first book in 1983, a study of Nazi occultism which I ultimately decided not to publish, I investigated this subject exhaustively…”

“La Hierba Mala No Muere” – Wild Edibles I

Stinging Nettle

WILD EDIBLES
Stinging Nettle, (Urtica dioica) like most wild edibles, is looked upon as an “invasive”, a “weed”, and something to stay away from due to it’s sting. Stinging Nettle is a Naturally available medicinal plant that is a true “super-food”- with the highest plant source of Protein (more than beans) and Iron. Very high in minerals (Calcium, Magnesium, Silicon, Sulphur, Copper, Chromium, Zinc, Cobalt, Potassium and Phosphorus), Chlorophyll, Vitamins (A,C, D, E, and K)… Riboflavin, Thiamine.
Medicinally, the root is good for the prostrate and the seeds are good for urinary tract infections.

Stinging Nettles

Best to harvest before they go into flowering and some say before they get “knee-high”. Harvest by spreading out your cutting in order to let the plant return it’s seed to the soil to continue to propagate. Gloves can be worn to avoid the sting, which actually can benefit arthritis.
You can dry part of your harvest right in the bag, storing it in a dry, warm place. Insert the dried Nettles into capsules or dash onto a dish. You can separate the leaves and cook into dishes that you would normally use greens in- soups, lentils, salads, lasagna, pesto, with eggs…

Milarepa, the great Tibetan Buddhist Saint (Magician, Murderer, Saint), survived off of nettles for many years. His skin took on a green color, as well as his hair. He clothed himself by using the plants fibrous veins.

ATWA Abraxas“In this world, man is Abraxas, who gives birth to and devours his own world.
The star is man’s God and goal.
It is his guiding divinity; in it man finds repose.
To it goes the long journey of the soul after death; in it shine all things which otherwise might keep man from the greater world with the brilliance of a great light.”

ATWAR SIGIL

-BIG SUR DOES NOT EXIST-

“Here the redwood made its last stand.

At dawn its majesty is almost painful to behold. That same prehistoric look. The look of always. Nature smiling at herself in the mirror of eternity….

Were there once two moons? Why not? There are mountains that have lost their scalps, streams that boil under the high snows. Now and then the earth rumbles, to level a city or open a new vein of gold.

At night the boulevard is studded with ruby eyes.

And what is there to match a faun as it leaps the void? Toward eventime, when nothing speaks, when the mysterious hush descends, envelops all, says all.

Hunter, put down your gun! It is not the slain which accuse you, but the silence, the emptiness. You blaspheme.

I see the one who dreamed it all as he rides beneath the stars. Silently he enters the forest. Each twig, each fallen leaf, a world beyond all knowing. Through the ragged foliage the splintered light scatters gems of fancy; huge heads emerge, the remains of stolen giants.

My horse! My land! My kingdom!’ The babble of idiots.

Moving with the night, horse and rider inhale deep draughts of pine, of camphor, of eucalyptus. Peace spreads its naked wings.

Was it ever meant to be otherwise?…

And ever the sea recedes. Moon drag. To the west, new land, new figures of earth. Dreamers, outlaws, forerunners. Advancing toward the other world of long ago and far away, the world of yesterday and tomorrow. The world within the world.

From what realm of light were we shadows who darken the earth spawned?
-Henry Miller- 1957

I was fortunate enough to have an opportunity to travel North on the Hwy.1 to Santa Cruz, through Big Sur, during the Summer Solstice…
able to escape, somewhat, from the confined artificiality of civilization-
realizing, all the more, the heavy reliance of which “modern man” (myself) is so bound- and disconnected…
Such heavy tracks we lay…

-To Nature’s Majesty & The Spirit of the Redwood-
X- Haze

“Today Big Sur is no longer an outpost. The number of sightseers and visitors increases yearly.

…What was inaugurated with virginal modesty threatens to end as a bonanza…

Big Sur may rapidly develop into a suburb (of Monterey), with bus service, barbecue stands, gas stations, chain stores and all the odious claptrap that makes Suburia horrendous.”

-Henry Miller- 1957
Big Sur and the Oranges of Hieronymus Bosch

MOTHER TREE

ATWAR

ATWAR

“Mother Tree knows my feelings for I can feel her branches and I know my own life in and out, around, up and down, through with, and with out.
Yes, Sister Sea feels me as I feel her waves and I hear the cries of the wildlife.
A perfect mother knows I feel the wood being cut and I hurt and die with trees falling.
How much a beast must I be to defeat the beast that destroys my mother?
The North Sea is dying, the icecaps are melting faster than ever.
The Aliken is dying on the rock and I feel it all as my life.
I can’t help it. I was bound to feel it and I feel it all
and she cries out at me
and I love the snake bird trees and wolves
ATWA
but humans bore me and are as aware as a slug
and slow as a snail and under it all.”

Charles Milles Manson
