    Neonspectraltoast, I didn't know you were from Iowa.



    The longest sobriety I have ever had, a year and a half, was at Saint Gregory's retreat, in Iowa. It's where I started long distance running and would run 12 miles straight. It ordinarily was a 90 day program, but they agreed to let me stay there for as long as it took to find responsible living place, as long as I worked as a janitor.

    It took a year and a half.

    It's also where I did much of my volunteer work at nursing homes and humane societies.

    Earlier today at this forum I was sharing Napoleon banners and reading about the all-seeing eyes of Horus and Ra.

    Well, it looks to me like the Iowa flag is a French flag with Hawk, and Horus + Ra were Hawk Deities. I have identified the favorite Kami I pray to as Queen of France and Hawk since 2015.

    Not that it means anything life-changing, but still. I didn't know Iowa is called "Hawk Eye" state. That's totally the nickname I'm giving the Fascist State:

    And today I was studying the all-seeing "Eye of Ra" is actually the bride or female consort of Ra.

    The Eye of Ra or Eye of Re is a being in ancient Egyptian mythology that functions as a feminine counterpart to the sun god Ra and a violent force that subdues his enemies. The Eye is an extension of Ra's power, equated with the disk of the sun, but it also behaves as an independent entity, which can be personified by a wide variety of Egyptian goddesses, including Hathor, Sekhmet, Bastet, Wadjet, and Mut. The Eye goddess acts as mother, sibling, consort, and daughter of the sun god. She is his partner in the creative cycle in which he begets the renewed form of himself that is born at dawn.

    The Eye's violent aspect defends Ra against the agents of disorder that threaten his rule. This dangerous aspect of the Eye goddess is often represented by a lioness or by the uraeus, or cobra, a symbol of protection and royal authority. The Eye of Ra is similar to the Eye of Horus, which belongs to a different god, Horus, but represents many of the same concepts. The disastrous effects when the Eye goddess rampages out of control and the efforts of the gods to return her to a benign state are a prominent motif in Egyptian mythology.

    The Eye of Ra was involved in many areas of ancient Egyptian religion, including in the cults of the many goddesses who are equated with it. Its life-giving power was celebrated in temple rituals, and its dangerous aspect was invoked in the protection of the pharaoh, of sacred places, and of ordinary people and their homes."

    So, this eye goddess is represented as a lioness and is indeed many Goddesses. Earlier I shared this image:

    Mussolini's pet Lion was named "Ras".

    This is the Iowa flag:

    Earlier today I shared this flag of Napoleon and the bird could pass for a hawk, though it's probably an eagle:

    Also,
    I identified Amaterasu, female sun divinity on Japanese flag, as Mussolini's (Ra) closest consort or bride.

    Amaterasu was born from the freshly purified eyeball of another God. That would kind of make her an eye goddess.

    Not that in Shinto Mythology you have to believe any of the tales or that they are without error.

    Shinto is about what you do, not what you believe about a world that cannot be seen.​

      That Iowa flag's motto isn't in jest, either. It's dead serious.

      Texas gets all the hooplah. We're a humble folk, but I dare anyone to come try to fuck with Iowa.
      These people are not fucking around. They're crazy. They don't care if they live or die.

      I'm different, of course, the black sheep. I'm not opposed to shinto, or the world of the dead. I don't pray much, but I agree you aren't mistaken in believing prayers actually are powerful.

      That's the one thing I agree completely with you on. The dead I meditate on aren't anybody but my relatives, though, mostly. And my hero, Kurt Cobain.

        It's a really nice place to live, though. Even though there are great big dummies here, just like everywhere else. We're not a big, happy family by any means, but there are rules.

          I'd totally live there again but my insurance won't pay for it. Definitely not a shortage of corn.

          Also,
          Thanks for reminding me to pray pay homage to and honor Kurt Cobain.
          I used to keep his pic on my wall at my last place and I think I threw it away during the move. If so, that's super bad luck and I regret it. haha!

            It's not for everyone. I've been staring across vast open fields of wheat and corn since the day I was born. Nothing to give me an answer. My older sister tried to get me in "the thick of things," so I've lived in big cities like Chicago and Detroit...but my heart wasn't in it.

            Here you can go get stoned and take some backroad into the middle of nowhere, with no one to bother you. And my favorite part is that it's fucking eerie. You're so lost.

              I loved jogging and seeing nothing but corn fields.

              I like the city too. Iowa was more contemplative and the people weren't as crazy though.

                I wish you could move here, Matt. Make it a goal, I say.

                  You have to be kind of lucky, I guess, but there are no people living on the streets in these small towns. We can't have that for our own pride.

                  Though, allegedly, there is a guy living in the woods here. You can do that, too. And anyone who refuses to feed you will become a pariah.

                  Of course, there is the element of people who think they're "local famous." Mostly wives, though. The guys are just fuck all.

                    I know I'm running on, and hate to be boastful... I'm not a part of the local sports team booster club. But I am proud of these people. Poke fun all you want.

                      Fucking humble. Dunno how it happened, but they are. Polite and courteous. Understanding, even.

                        It's the second coolest place I've lived. If Saint Gregory would take me back and my insurance covered it I'd go.

                        I stay in Twin Cities for sentimental purposes because of all the signs and "Capitol Hill" memorials where over a thousand deceased people are enshrined makes me feel I need to stay here.

                        Partially because I was referring to the main Kami I pray to as "Capitol Hill Queens" before ever knowing there is a place called "Capitol Hill" in the state much less that I would live near it. Also, I was praying to victims of Ted Bundy before knowing that I lived in the city of Ted Bundy's first victim.

                        That and a bunch of other signs keeps me here.

                        But were I to live anywhere else in the United States that I have lived so far, it would be Iowa again. I've lived in Oregon, Montana, Texas, New York, and Florida as well. I like Iowa better.

                        Plus the Hawk and Napoleon are big parts of my Spirituality as well as me calling Denise "Queen of France" and Hawk, before knowing she died "National France day". So, to see the french flag with a Hawk on it right after posting a French flag with a Hawk/eagle on it is a trip.

                        Plus it's the Hawk eye state, and earlier today I prayed that this girl, Junko Furuta of Japan, because of the 44 days of Hell she went through, would be one of the divinities associated with "The Eye of Ra":



                        So, it is like it is confirmation, she is one of the "Hawk Eye" divinities of the male Solar Deity.

                        I'm totally printing out the eye of Ra and enshrining it now and was going to get it tatooed to me a while back and I chose a serpent going in and out of my leg instead. Wish I would have gone with the original choice.

                        But it could be, with my identifying Denise as a Hawk and Queen of France before she died national France day , and Iowa being Hawk Eye state with French flag and Hawk, could be sign she wants me to return to Saint Gregorian retreat.

                        I can't rule out that possibility at all.

                          You belong wherever you are. No place is anywhere except what you make it. And trust me, my aura is a heavy reminder of how lowly Iowans are. These wannabe celebs ain't got nothing on this heart.
