And now she's mad.
As usual, this is not a political post, but rather an attempt to observe how schisms in our Collective Consciousness project outward and appear as synchronous events in our reality.
Previously I discussed actress Paula Patton's role as the archetypal GIRL and the struggle between the divine male and female being played out in her public marital split with husband and singer Robin Thicke.
|Text message from Paula in the opening scene of Thicke's "Get Her Back" video.|
The Get Her Back video is generating a bad rap, but I don't agree with the Illuminati mind control interpretation in this case. As a person who has watched the movie Deja Vu probably 50 or more times, it's clear to me that the video's imagery is meant to be a reflection of that film.
In the movie, Denzel Washington plays Paula's fictional cosmic lover who travels through time, rescues her from a brutal murderer (Destiny/Fate), and ultimately sacrifices his own life to break the glass (of illusion) and save her from drowning in a ferry explosion.
|Paula Patton swimming to safety after Denzel breaks the glass to save her in the movie Deja Vu.|
In the Get Her Back video Thicke recognizes that he is Paula's real life, time-traveling cosmic lover, however in his estimation he has tried but failed to save her this go 'round because he was distracted by the things of the world (of forms). Thus, we see him looking beat up from unsuccessfully fighting the murderer followed by images of a model who strongly resembles Paula drowning.
|At the end of the video, Thicke's text reply to Paula indicates that, like Denzel in Deja Vu, |
despite his many failed attempts he's still going back to try to save her...again.
But currently Robin Thicke has gone from writing one song about getting the GIRL back, to writing a whole album dedicated to her that many critics are calling a pathetically misguided and ultimately narcissistic attempt to reunite with his wife.

"This is an issue with men in general: the misogynistic failure to accept that "other people’s bodies and other people’s love are not something that can be taken nor even something that can be earned" but rather things that "can be given freely, by choice, or not."—The Daily Beast

and her husband Ted as they argue inside their family's tire store in the fictional town of PAULIE.
(Season 2, Ep. 2, "Sleeping Giants", airdate: 6/26/14).
I'm drastically oversimplifying it, but from a universal perspective this illustrates the rift between
Pauline Christianity's doctrine of original sin versus the Gnostic view that
when the "Two become One" they can escape the "Wheel of Fate".
At this point I'm going to conflate the two goddesses Isis and Kali because they're both faces of the same underlying archetypal feminine energy— Isis, the nurturing wife/mother, and Kali, the vengeful wife/mother.
|Isis (left and middle); Kali (right)|
We can see both faces now because we have pierced the veil of Maya (the false duality of object and subject) and are in the process of moving to a higher state.
On the world stage our milestone in consciousness paralleled the crossing over of Maya Angelou, a tremendously powerful woman who was an exemplary manifestation of the "feeling/sensing/aware" part of us.
But moving from duality back into a state of Oneness is a monumentally difficult transition fraught with pitfalls and dangerous distractions.

In order to succeed, form (or matter) must be infused with Spirit. With Spirit we float, we fly. Without it we drown. We fall back to ground like so many empty shells.
On the TV show Game of Thrones, the archetypal mother Catelyn Stark dies in a bloodbath defending her family at the end of Season 3. However, in the book version, she's resurrected as Lady Stoneheart, the immortal mother raining down vengeance on all those who dared hurt her children.
|Catelyn Stark, Lady of Winterfell, with blood on her hands.|
In fact, the entire Game of Thrones story line reads like a lineup of fierce women, from young to old, from mothers of kings to mothers of dragons, who will do anything to save their families trapped in the shadow of the Iron Throne.

(Game of Thrones, Season 4 finale, "The Children", airdate: 6/15/14)
One glance at the daily news is all it takes to chronicle the atrocities being done to children lately from school shootings to mass kidnappings (see the Twilight Language blog post "Suffer the Little Children").
Yet, to the Gnostics "Little children" was simply a coded phrase.
Therefore, the violent projections emerging out of our Collective Consciousness really represent us desperately trying to free and save our "child" selves from the Black Iron Prison.
The question remains then, how does one pacify the vengeful mother goddess Isis-Kali? Well, according to myth only her husband Shiva can calm her.
In Jungian terms I believe this means that the masculine side of our Collective Consciousness must integrate the Anima, the projection of the feminine side, rather than objectifying her and viewing her power as a threat.
So, keep begging Robin Thicke, keep begging. Maybe she'll come around.
|Emily Blunt (as the Divine Warrior Feminine) and Tom Cruise (as the Divine Male) |
combine forces to defeat the wheel of Fate and Time in the movie Edge of Tomorrow.
If you haven't seen it yet, go see it.
By the same token, the feminine aspect of consciousness must integrate her male Animus rather than displaying animosity. There has to be a true recognition of each other's unique yet complimentary strengths and a realization that one CAN NOT exist without the other.
As the late, great Bobby Womack crooned, "If you think you're lonely now, wait until tonight GIRL."
To win, the Two must become One.
He's coming :) ...
I love the part when he says "I'm here about a GIRL." And the soundtrack singing 'it's too late to start over.' yep. It's going down.

It's over . . . or it's never over? The sun rises on the flipside.
Hmmm I would say it's up in the air right now, but He always manages to suck Her back in *rolls eyes* lol. That's crazy how Lana's life always syncs.Delete
I saw this definition of "flipside" on your link:
"Flipside" would also appear on special Target editions of Ultraviolence. The term "flipside" has various meanings, most commonly it's the B-side on a single which a listener would have to "flip" the record over to listen to. In slang usage it can mean "tomorrow". To say "catch someone on the flipside" means to see them later.----
So, in essence, Flipside = Edge of Tomorrow :)))))
Nice vibes Sibyl, as usual. DennisReplyDelete
Thanks for reading, Dennis!Delete
Hi Sibyl, beautiful post. I had to listen to this when I finished reading - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FA5jsa1lR9cReplyDelete
You've got my head turning over wondering (maybe hoping, just to see...) if Paula doesn't return to him, what his next album would be about.
Could make the narrative that he's heading for a dark night of the soul beginning with a crack in his innocence from Blurred Lines, see the third paragraph here - http://tinyurl.com/mukja3a, and Paula representing the false ground beneath his feet falling away, which of course he doesn't want to happen.
Excellent point, Clarence. Although things look dire on the relationship front, this could be a major breakthrough in self-growth for him if he allows it to be. The divine male choosing to die repeatedly until he learns how to save the divine female (and thus the whole world) is a theme in both Deja Vu and Edge of Tomorrow. And in both films all paths where he tries to go it alone fail, until finally he tells her the truth, she learns to trust him, and they face the threat together . Collectively, I hope this is the path We choose this time—truth and wholeness.Delete
Thanks for reading! :)
Beautiful post, Sibyl. Paula is the feminine of Paul. The other aspect of the DF I often consider is simply that she is the subconscious Id aspect, where the male is conscious ego. I often think that Shiva, lying dead yet alive, represents an ego-death experience, where he and Kali are re-united, and she remembers her love for him.ReplyDelete
Curious conjunction here in Washington - Pride Day (Rainbow bridge) is today, and tomorrow, the state marries we "domestic partners" into holy matrimony.
nice manifestation of the 2 becoming 1...Happy Pride Day!Delete
I'm catching up with the blogs...very interesting stuff, thanks! I've added you to my blog-list.ReplyDelete
thanks! i've added you to my blog list, too.Delete
Enjoyed it. Referenced it in my new piece at RDR "Help! ISIS, the Middle East tinderbox and WWIII."ReplyDelete
thanks! I've added Red Dirt to my blog list. In your article it's interesting how you talked about “Kali cultists” who seek to bring violence and death to the one who “wears the ring”. I just saw the movie Maleficent and that's exactly what the whole entire film was about...the Dark Mother turning back into a loving mother figure after sating her bloodthirsty vengeance on the wearer of the iron ring.Delete
