Love’s triumph is Ascension

Saturday, 30 April 2022 at 10:21

Urizen on Dr John Dunn. William Blake's Urizen casts his net over the dumb masses

Love’s triumph is Ascension

Dr John Dunn 2022.

Religionism masks the truth, be it within a formal religion, or some more sinisterly inculcated system of informal ethics. This is the opening theme of Ascension, the blog most recently placed into the Archive.

The search for truth through the religion of their fathers turns into misplaced loyalty, or even a mind-numbing hobby.

The dumb masses are misled.

The apparently devout and mystical feelings of a modern human being are false, and amount to a false religion.

Satan’s Synagogue was William Blake’s name for the false religion:

Man must and will have some religion; if he has not the religion of Jesus, he will have the religion of Satan, and will erect the Synagogue of Satan.

Blake called it a synagogue because its participants murdered Love, adhering instead pharisaically to a vengeful law:

Urizen called together the Synagogue of Satan in dire Sanhedrin
To judge the Lamb of God to death as a murderer and a robber. (Blake’s Jerusalem)

Only those in whom the Logos lives have the capacity for freedom from this bleak conditioning and ascension above nature and an animal-like existence (in thrall to Ananke).

He that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.’ (1 John 4:16)

For those in whom Love dwelleth, the task of thinking is not to comprehend or intuit the Logos - an empty rhetorical undertaking, conceivable only on the basis of a false understanding of the Logos as an entity wholly apart, as Him ‘up there’, as Urizen.

The way to the Logos does not lie within feeling, but at the source of the thinking by means of which we think.

There must be an awakening to Love, which is the originatory principle, in the beginning, always.

The Synagogue of Satan in dire Sanhedrin judged the Lamb of God to death. Love was murdered and continues to be so, but Love will triumph over evil.

For what is idolatry?

Rejecting evil. For what is idolatry?

Dr John Dunn 2022.

My next blog to be moved into the archive is For what is idolatry?

The extent to which the world has succumbed to idolatry may surprise you. You are almost certainly not aware of it.

To shake free of idolatry is tantamount to being reborn.

Re-birth,whilst made possible by the impulse of the Logos, i.e. the ‘I’s’ encounter with the Logos, demands that a choice be made. ‘To be according to the Logos’ is a‘free act’ and, being free, can be accepted or rejected. The temptation to reject is that of rejecting the light of the Logos and choosing instead to follow the Prince of Darkness, i.e the Prince of the corporeal world, Urizen, making an idol of thought petrified.

The choice of the Prince of Darkness can take many forms as William Blake knew only too well.

Christian religionism for Blake had carried over the worshipping of the demiurge from the followers of Jehovah, which made it, essentially, Devil Worship.

Satan’s Synagogue is William Blake’s name for the false religion that worships the base powers of this world.

Man must and will have some religion; if he has not the religion of Jesus, he will have the religion of Satan, and will erect the Synagogue of Satan.

It is called a synagogue because it murders Love, adhering instead pharisaically to a vengeful law.

Urizen called together the Synagogue of Satan in dire Sanhedrin
To judge the Lamb of God to death as a murderer and a robber. (Blake’s Jerusalem)

Love v Evil

Image of Jesus on Dr John Dunn. One side of the bifurcation

Love v Evil

Dr John Dunn 2022.

I have recently transferred two short blogs to the Archive. I have tried to summarise the case they make, but the best way to find out is to read them yourself. Read them here.

Real bifurcation
Encountered as Love

Feeling, the will and all things mystical must thrown out.

Kabbalah and hermetic-alchemical symbols, yoga, occultism, and magic, these have all been concocted by the ages-old enemy of Love.

Spinoza injected this mysticism into the Enlightenment and infected mainstream thought to this day - materialism being the latest manifestation of mysticism.

The enemy’s goal in the revivification of traditional spiritualism is the impulse to block the living experience of the Logos,thereby inducing the suicide of the self.

The philosophical and political opposition to the enemy’s goal comes from the party of Love, which knows that the ‘I’ must be the centre of dominion and power, which is synonymous with creative power. To be at the centre of creation is to reject the devil worshippers and become one with God.

There you have the only political bifurcation that counts, Good, or Love versus Evil.

Birth of the “I”

Monday, 25 April 2022 at 20:36

The new light on Dr John Dunn. Love points the way to Birth of the “I”

Dr John Dunn 2022.

Read the transferred blog here.

The next blog entry to be transferred into the archive is about revolution,meaning a complete turnaround, a change in thinking and direction.

“Our truly revolutionary act of annihilation will lead to a discovery of the“I” of Dantesque proportions, the discovery of the “I” in the Logos and vice versa.”

We seek (we being the thinking ones) seek the originating principle because it delivers us from evil, from error and from destruction, but we cannot find it as long as we ignore our own “I”, which bears the force of the Logos within it.

Find the “I”, find the Logos. It is the dictum that God is Love that points the way.

Ascension of the light

Sunday, 24 April 2022 at 21:09

Ascension light on Dr John Dunn. Ascension of the light

Dr John Dunn 2022.

There is a universal denial. There is a blocked consciousness of what Nature actually is. Nature has broken free of the originating principle from which it emerged. It now appears to us as a wholly separate entity, with some sort of self-motivated existence.

The blog entitled Ascension that I have just transferred to the archive deals with just these issues.

The truth is that Nature is ‘thought petrified’, that which originates in us, but is lost and reflected back to us as though it were a free-spirited thing apart.

There needs to be the ‘lightning strike’ of realisation focused upon Nature, for, until that strike, light remains solidified in the denying of itself. However, each disintegration of matter is a moment of ascension of the light, rendering the miraculous as an actuality, the beginning and the ascension - always.

New YouTube video

Middle Littleton Tithe Barn on Dr John Dunn. New YouTube video

Dr John Dunn 2022

Another of my motorcycling outings has just been published on YouTube. Click here to see it.

Entitled By Royal Enfield motorcycle to the great tithe barn at Middle Littleton

The video follows my ride down the escarpment of Dover’s Hill near Chipping Campden in the Cotswolds, to the flat plain of the Vale of Evesham below, dropping from 760ft to 190ft in a mile, riding to aptly named Weston Sub-Edge, to pick up Ryknild Street, the straight Roman road, before turning off to visit the great and magnificent tithe barn at Middle Littleton.

And ‘great and magnificent’ is no exaggeration. The medieval building, from the 13th century, is truly a wonder to behold.

Join me on the ride, I would welcome your company.

Destroy nature

Friday, 22 April 2022 at 21:42

On fire on Dr John Dunn. What was the beginning? Destroy nature

Dr John Dunn 2022.

To answer this we must think of the destructive act committed by people who are newly conscious of that which is lost, i.e. the Logos, or the shaping thought-content of nature.

This consciousness empowers the investigator to wilfully break the interminable cycle, thereby radicalising the void and opening the threshold to the light of the Logos, the Christ - certainly not the mystical or gnostic Christ or that of religion, but the cosmic Christ.

This breaking of the interminable cycle of nature, the equilibrium into which we are thrown, is the beginning.

In my own mythological terms, it is the violation of Ananke.

The main point is that we must not think of the beginning as a one-off event, a sort of theological big bang theory.

A beginning with cosmic consequences can happen at any time.

This was the point of the blog essay, Destroy nature, that I recently archived. Read it here.
