JESUS & LENNON: FIRST PHILOSOPHERS

 

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

 

 

Recalling those high school days

So zestful and slim a boy fumes thoughts

Like they were coming out of my cells

 

Immersed my mental body was

In the thought streams

Of Christ and Lennon

One to bridge with the Divine

The other to link with humanity

 

They who thought me sublime imagining

Of love and compassion for all

Creations of the Almighty

Will live forever within me

 

[Philippines, 29 August 2010]

 

 

REFLECTION

 

Jesus Christ and John Lennon were my first philosophers. Jesus I knew only from cathechism as a child, but that was enough to make me his bhaktha or devotee. As the poem says, Jesus was “to bridge the Divine,” as all Christed Ones are to bhakthas and chelas (disciples). In high school did I first had the opportunity to read the Holy Bible when our copy of the scriptures were brought home to us by my Grandpa who visited the Vatican on a European tour. Being among the Chohans of the Great White Brotherhood, his teachings are among those I regard as must-read-and-practice philosophies to become a free person.

 

John Lennon I came to know first as a child too, as vocalist for Beatles. I learned to play the guitar by summer of my Grade 5, and by Grade 6 I was already playing for the school rondalla or ‘string band’. At home I played Beatles songs as some of my favorites. Then came high school years, 71 through 75, when Lennon went solo. His songs were philosophical, and I simply loved them. As the poem says, he was “the other to link with humanity,” meaning a voice of collective conscience. His song Imagine is the most appreciated, and at times I couldn’t avoid shedding tears singing it, as the imageries of the wars in Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and insurgencies in the Philippines screamed the headline news.

 

Lennon was no spiritual master like Jesus, true. He was like any ordinary folk who was asserting his right to make people happy and ring their conscience with messages of love and liberation. But he deserved my respect, and lives forever in me being a part of my formative years.

 

A 3rd philosopher of my adolescent years was Dr. Jose Rizal, national hero of the Philippines. In my previous writings, I regard Rizal as a ‘guru of nationhood’ like Gandhi, who mentored my forefathers to loving the motherland and gelling themselves into a nation. I encountered his novels in 3rd year high school, as a required reading, and the rest was history.

ARROGANCE & HUBRIS WON’T PAY November 19, 2015

ARROGANCE & HUBRIS WON’T PAY

 

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

 

 

The ego surely has every way

To ambush your psyche

Like bandits waiting to waylay thee

It comes with thunderbolts

Of thoughts so dark and gloom

They’d make you depart

From your sublime humanity

 

Such as to make you wallow

In dirty cesspools

Of arrogance and hubris

Large may the pool be

Yet dirty is it as ever

 

Arrogance and hubris won’t ever

Pay enough and won’t reward thee

Save but to sink thee

Deeper in murky waters of evils

Such darkness will come back

Upon thee when most unexpected

Like a boomerang gleefully flying

To return to its own thrower

 

[Philippines, 20 August 2010]

 

 

REFLECTION

 

Arrogance, delusion, pride all go together as evils experienced by the lower self or psyche. You would notice how many are those who claim today to be representatives of the Divine Beings, and by examining the contentions they make—that are ambiguous and deceptive—you know that they are engaging in delusions. And they delude the public with an aura of humility, mind you. Yet they arrogate upon themselves the huge role of Divine representative! What philistine hubris!

 

Such evils could hide themselves from the uninitiated or ignorant, but not from sharp empaths, psychoanalysts and more so from evolved souls. Just by reading through about three hundred (300+) channeling articles writ in 1992-2001, I was able to perceive through dark marshes and saw the arrogance and hubris that went with them. Those channelers, who are actually spiritist mediums that perform necromancy (calling the spirits of dead, animals, negatives astral beings), are psychologically unstable, and to prove my point let them undergo psychiatric test. I can see through them, being an empath who conducted listening & counseling on hundreds of troubled souls.

 

Arrogance, hubris, delusion, pride are all poisons to the soul. Any truly willful seeker should be determined to deprogram them from the psyche. The tools of deprogramming vices are provided by an initiating guru, as I normally do to those I mentor, and should be applied diligently. There can be no excuses for missing out on deprogramming certain vices or evils such as lying, cheating, arrogance, pride, as the failure to take them out will redound to reinforcing veils in the Path.

 

Unable to deprogram vices and take down veils in the Path, Divine Grace can never be fully given by the Almighty, and the advancing seeker will remain dangling in the ‘purgatorial regions’ of existence. Burn down all evils, take down all veils, and Divine Providence will grant nirvana, the 1st phase of true liberation, unto the devotee or seeker or mystic.

TREES’ MEDITATION November 8, 2015

TREES’ MEDITATION

 

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

 

 

Like unto humans and angels

Fairies and devas and all

Trees do have minds that speak

No matter how feeble they may seem

They to have aspirations to climb

The stairways back to God’s domain

Stretching arms upwards

They have always been demonstrative

Of that pure love for Earth

Likewise for God’s created creatures

Of flora they are yet of distinction

For devotionally stretching

Arms and limbs to God

Torn to pieces yet

By stormy winds they weather

Unquestioningly performing duties

With sublime grace

Shall they be rewarded

Be the Heavenly hosts

Someday they too will climb up

The stairways to higher worlds

Never again to be trampled

By predatory species

[Philippines, 11 August 2010]

REFLECTION

It is wonderful to behold the trees reaching their branches outwards to the heavens. Being part of the vegetative domain, trees have a collective soul. Though feeble yet in mind-like qualities, they do have a soul, one soul for a specific species of trees. Being part of the vegetative life, they are testaments to the 2nd Evolutionary Round.

The 2nd Evolutionary Round came right after the 1st Round, the Mineral. The 3rd Evolutionary Round brought about animal life, or Animal-Man if we take it from the vantage point of humans. Humans—or Devic-Man—constitutes the 4th Round of Evolution, to which we belong to and of which we are living manifestations of.

Evolved souls have great love for trees and species of nature, and I guess their unconscious minds tell them so. Most evolved ones are of course the spiritual Masters, from saint through Avatara, whose love for vegetative, animal, and devic species goes beyond showing mutual devotion alone: they do give notes on wisdom and harmony tools to the latter’s souls when opportunities come as Teachers of the Law of One.

Should you wish to know what will happen to trees and the vegetative kingdom, be at peace with their continuing ascent. They will comprise part of the New Earth, and even in the higher dimensions of Earth later they will follow through and be co-balancers of the environment.
