Of Man God(s) & Deities

Yes I know, it has been a while before this DUI posted his own original work. Do you think I just sit around in front of whatever electronic screen just waiting to post rants and raves?. Hello earth to kid, even we deities have lives to lead, or in my case, this gigai has a boring and mundane life to live. Yes yes, I am still stuck on this crappy blue-green mass of rock as I am yet to devise a human-friendly way to get back to my universe. For those of you who are cat curious, no I still haven’t found one, calling out to all Christian Scientists out there to come help a deity. I hope I didn’t sound oxymoronic.

Another year that you’ve all crossed over like chiasmata.. Yaay!. Big feat!. Not that I really care and all being the DUI and all.

I hear that 2016 will be a blank year in history books, not because nothing happened but human idiocy was at its highest level worldwide. Don’t even get me started. But I doubt Clio will care, she will put it down in her scrolls. Speaking of Clio reminds me of Apollo. Apollo reminds me of- no not the bloody United States of A feel free to use any obscenity starting with A- spaceship but rather, the Olympian. Olympian in turn reminds me of Olympus-not the boring movie depicting the bloody US of A- any other obscenity starting with an A will do- falling, the real Olympus: Dwelling of the Gods.

Yes we are going to discuss not in detail but superficially about gods.

Yes I know, I am the DUI and as such I am jealous of my divinity and realm, however, I am but a deity. That means there is that overall God, be it Jehovah, Allah, Krishna, Akal Purakh, Zeus, Jupiter, Amaterasu-ōmikami, whatever you sobriquet your Supreme Being. A deity is like a Count, has power over only his jurisdiction but still pays homage to the Big One. So where am I headed with this post?.

Nowhere really, its just that my gigai has a different religious path. Raised up in a strictly Christian household almost on par as the Puritans’, Mormons, Baptists but neither, a sense of spirituality was inbred in my gigai. I say spirituality and not religion as those two don’t have the same interchangeable meaning.

At times when meditating my gigai would view it’s Supreme Being as a stout old man sitting high in the clouds wearing spectacles and having that harsh patriarchal look. HE had a long white beard and even longer whiter hair on his head. HE didn’t wear a crown but my gigai would feel the power and wisdom emanating from the visualisation of HIM. Usually as soon as HE was visualised my gigai would tremble and complete morbid fear would envelop him. It lasted but a second and my gigai would quickly take a breath and channel its thoughts to other areas. Why am I bringing this up now?.

Well at exactly 25.1.2017 2049hrs this gigai had the unfortunate incident of conjuring up the Supreme Being and hadn’t it been for my-the DUI- pulling him out of that trance, I think I would be posting a different story now..

My question though is this, why has mankind always viewed gods as old men and women?. Look at the depiction of Zeus, Poseidon, Ra, Baal and others not mentioned. All are old aged men-by gods I mean the Head Honcho. Don’t get me wrong I have nothing against grey, white or silver hair but I am yet to see a Supreme Being, being personified as a hale and robust youth, with the wisdom of an old man of course. I mean Divine Beings don’t age physically as humankind does. Besides doesn’t old age always precede death at least from a human standpoint?. I don’t know if I am speaking for all the deities out there but personally I prefer being personified as a young man, because please don’t try to kill me before my time. And if history-one of the 9 muses Clio I think- serves me right, gods are rarely killed instead being locked up in dark spiritless chasms. Where according to legend mankind shall await, Armageddon, Day of Judgement, Ragnarok, The End of the World, Aharit ha-Yamim, et al- eschatology the learned shall quip.

My side?. I am the Deity of the Universe of Infinite though the (I) could be meaning something else. For now let me pen off as I have my own version of Gotterdamurung-the end of the world to prepare back in my universe. And no there shall be no gods battling or judging of humans. My UI is a real life version of the Shangri-La, Paradise, Elysium Fields.

From the DUI, man of the people, peaceful being and jealous deity, stay safe..

Of Money and Relationships

They say money can’t buy you love, nor happiness.. The best it can do is buy you pseudo love and pseudo happiness.. All that is true but also money can make you lose precious gems like nakama..
Well at least in my case..
There was a girl I really liked back and we hit it off on good footing but she left me and though I was given a shoddy reason that couldn’t hold water. The real reason though that I knew, was that she saw I didn’t have the amount of money that she wanted.. Too harsh, eh?.
Okay lemme tone down the story and take a different perspective. Two years back where I was working, one of our usual clients became friends with me. Well I even knew her place and twice she brought me cooked food to enjoy. Other times after closing shop I’d head to her place to deliver her purchases and we’d end up watching a movie and eating before I headed home.. Some of the purchases were either on high discount rates or on credit. She did tale her time to pay them all back though. But what ticked me off was she took something on credit and took over 6 months to pay back. I had to pay the business back with my own cash and follow up on her. Sadly, because of that, I lost her as a friend. Yeah I know don’t mix business and friendship. Also I wasn’t stupid, I knew she wanted us to be friends so that she could benefit but I naïvely thought that she had a good side, well that wasn’t the case. Though I don’t want to judge her and neither should you.
That isn’t an isolated case though, I’ve had quite a few other encounters along the same line. And all didn’t end happily ever after.
Well now you think that I am naïve and maybe it is true, however I prefer nakama over money.. It is the little things in life that are enjoyable and that is what I treasure so if money will cause friction between me and nakama then I’d rather not have money.. I hear some of you say that in case don’t help out with money in the first place- well there are two big hurdles with that.
First, I am naïve and because of that I love helping people out. When someone comes to me for help, I actually I’m very happy. They say that humans need to be loved, but for me in my case, the feeling of being needed supersedes love. I’m not saying that I help to be recognised, on the contrary I prefer doing things incognito. That is so because I am very bad when it comes to handling and receiving praise and gratitude. I’m an introvert hence I’m an objective type of person. Truthfully, most of the time when I help out it isn’t because I care much, only because I can.. Sounds contradictory, right?.
Secondly, I am a very lousy liar especially when asked a direct question. Even if I lie it will be pretty obvious to all and sundry so I can’t lie that I can’t help you.
The lending part isn’t an issue for me, it is the debt recovery part that is. If it is my fellow Martian I can easily, ask for it and in case things get ugly then a few punches will suffice. After that we resume our daily routines. However, if it is one of the Venetian species then that brings myriad of challenges.
When I lend cash to the Venetians I usually write it off as a bad debt for though they always promise to pay it back, they never do. I don’t know whether when they say that they will repay and they don’t, do they think about the effects? For me my trust in then corrodes and I can never lend them money again. Funny enough they never do get back to asking me for help again. Well there are three exceptions to that story.
First, my mother is one of those who love saying they’ll pay me back. However, she never does and yet she still has the audacity to ask me for more and claim she’ll pay it back. Sigh, I hate that cycle but because she is my mother, I never bother thinking about it.
Next is the only Venetian that I know keeps her word. When she asks for cash from me I will actually move heaven and earth to help her. She is trustworthy when it comes to money matters. Incidentally she is a very close friend I made eight years back.
The last exception is another friend I made two to three years back. Well she trusts me a lot though I wonder why. Well my first approach was I had a crush on her, but she had already been taken by someone else so I gave up. However, out of her insight and intuition she kept me close as a friend. She views me as her elder brother always there to help her out. Though I usually act aloof and cold to her she still cherishes me. Anyway she is the only one who is truthful when asking for money, she usually tells me that “I might not be able to pay back any time soon”.. I like her brutal honesty and because of that I will help her out.
Maybe I should just get back to my previous state where I at least could say the truth that I have no money/can’t help out.
Until next time, signing out.
