Dualism & the Cycles of Time

806 words

French translation here

The moral dogma that has infected European Civilization since its beginning is a Judaic DUALISM inherited from Zoroastrianism and brought in by Christianity. Dualism states that there is a battle being fought in both the spiritual and earthly realms (and even within every individual) between two opposites, “good and evil.” Not only has this Dualism subverted our culture, it has turned the individual into a split personality: this is the result of repressing what is considered “evil” about one’s nature by moral and religious dogmas. 

Cycles of Time

Before this Dualism was implanted, pagan societies didn’t label natural forces with such absolute moral attributes. There were creative and destructive forces in Nature, often symbolized as gods. But even the destructive aspects has creative purposes, and were part of a transcendent cosmic unity.

For e.g. in what moral context can we place Indo-Aryan deities such as Shiva and Kali? To the European dualized mind they would be considered “evil” because of their primal destructiveness. But to the Hindus, retaining the ancient Aryan wisdom, they are “beyond good and evil.” They comprise both the creative and destructive aspects of Nature in their various forms and roles. Even their destructive roles are a vital part of a cosmic CYCLIC process of creation-destruction-renewal: Shiva in his Cosmic Dance of Destruction clears the way for another round of history’s endless Cycles.

Ragnarök

The Germanics and Norse, like their Indo-European kinsfolk, also had this cyclic cosmology. The destruction brought by Ragnarok is the prelude to a new earth, new humanity, new heaven & even a new pantheon of gods. The Gods themselves cannot avoid their Fate, for without the destruction by Ragnarok there would be stagnation and decay.

The Dark forces of Loki, Fenrir, Surt, Garm and Iormungandr are Catalysts for Change; thus the Cycle continues: creation-destruction-renewal. This is the inexorable process that can be observed in both History & Nature.

The Persians before Zoroastrianism had a conception of this interplay between the Light & Dark forces which were seen as two aspects of Zervan, Lord of Time. The Light of Ahura Mazda & the Dark of Ahriman were both emanation of Zervan. Zoroastrianism divided these two into moral opposites separated from the Time Lord. It is from here that Judaism & ultimately Christianity got their DUALISM, which has afflicted Europe.

Some of the Gnostic sects rejected Dualism and restored the ancient wisdom in the deity Abraxas, who united all polarities within himself. The psychologist Carl Jung turned to Abraxas when considering the inter-relationship that exists between polarities in Nature.

Individuation

Jung revived the ancient wisdom with modern scientific methods and terms, but drawing from pre- and non-Christian cultures and Medieval Alchemy. He sought to unify the polarities within the individual to create the whole person (called “Individuation”) no longer cut off from his repressed so-called “evil” SHADOW SELF. This “Individuation” of Jungian psychology is also akin to the occultist’s quest for Adeptship.

Jung was concerned with how a neurotic christian civilization could be brought back to the completeness of pagan times. He saw the need to allow the repressed barbarian lurking within modern man to resurface and find a modern expression. Thus his support for National Socialist Germany as an expression of the repressed Shadow Self of the Germans, symbolized as Wotan.

Christianized Neo-Pagans

Judaeo-Christian moral dualism is now so deep-seated within the European psyche that even those pagans who think they are outside the Christian context are as dualized as any Christling.

These “neo-pagans” (sic) have made internationalists & pacifists out of tribal war gods! Where warrior attributes cannot be ignored, they have been transformed into “the way of the peaceful warrior” (puke!). Tyr, Thor & Odin have been castrated. The neo-pagans have simply made the Old Gods reflections of their own dualized, half-selves. They have repressed as “evil” the Dark aspects. These neo-pagans are worse than useless; they are another aspect of the dualism that is driving the European folk to self-destruction.

Even many (most?) of the harder-line “Odinists”, have a cosmology that is essentially Christian. They have dualized the Aesir & the Jotuns into contending moral forces of “good vs. evil” – ODIN (OR BALDER) IS THEIR JESUS. LOKI IS THEIR SATAN. RAGNAROK IS THEIR ARMAGEDDON. The whole significance of Indo-European cyclic cosmology has been rendered null and void.

The pagan heritage has been Dualized . . . Christianized!

There are some pagans, however, who continue to honor the ancient wisdom. They see the cosmos as an interplay of polarities, not as a battlefield of moral dualities. It is this that is the basis of EVOLUTION. Without this catalyst mankind slips back into the nebulous mass from which he evolved. It is just such a degraded state that the religions and moralities of decay are dragging us towards. Let our path be starbound.

Hail Odin! Hail Loki!

    As the author of this piece, perhaps 15 to 20 years ago, might I be the first to say, emphatically, unequivically – WHAT A LOAD OF CRAP!
    I doubt whether there is a single sentence I would any longer endorse.
    There IS a spiritual dichotomy of good and evil going on in the mundane and spiritual realms, and a major target had long been the Church, whether one is a Christian or not, which provided a sound ethical and social basis on which Western Civilization flourished.
    Hail this, Hail that! Jeeze, how embarassing. The only hailing I’d be likely to do now, would be nearer to Hail Mary!

      Kerry,

      Usually we don’t publish criticisms like “What a load of crap!” It is insulting to the author. But since you are the author, I figured we should make an exception.

      Honestly, Kerry, although I think it is far from crap, this would not be one of the first pieces by you I would choose to reprint. But our very generous French translator sent us an original translation. So I figured that if I publish the translation, I should reprint the original.

      Be prepared: he likes your older work, and he has sent us another translation, this one of a piece on “The Metaphysics of War.”
