YouTube Video – The 16th Prasad, “Accumulating and Dominating” Of “The Great Reveal”

The 16th
Prasad – “Accumulating ‘Things,’ Dominating Others.” Of "The Great
Reveal" by The Planetmates

Description

This is a reading of The Sixteenth
Prasad, as received from The Planetmates — what I’m calling
"Accumulating ‘Things,’ Dominating
Others"
— with additional explanation,
context, and some commentary by SillyMickel Adzema. The issues highlighted in
the commentary concern the ways that our change of lifeways – from nomadic to
sedentary – led to the ability to accumulate more possessions than one would
ever need and how this excessive accumulation led naturally to another
cancerous branch on the tree of obsessive, fearful control – the branch of
controlling, now, even other humans. This control of other humans derived from
the ability of those who were Big Accumulators to reward and gift – using their
excessive store of “things” — Smaller Accumulators in exchange for their cooperation.
Thus this enabled people to “buy off” other people for the first time in human’s
history, but it also led to an increasing diminishment of consciousness of the
human species over that which human’s had previously. This diminishment of
consciousness was tragic and has had dire repercussions extending right up to
today, as is being made ever clearer by The Planetmates.

The full text of The Sixteenth Prasad, as received from The Planetmates,
reads as follows:

The other dire
consequence of your adoption of sedentary, non-nomadic life ways was the
ability to gather more “things” – not just food but all kinds of “things” – for
you did not have to carry what you owned, like a nomad would. When you ceased
wandering and set up more permanent abodes, you enabled the gathering and
storage of much more than you could possibly need.

“This had effects
on your unplanetmate-like greed and your unplanetmate-like desire to control,
now – sadly, even this – others of your own species.

"Those of you
who gathered more or accumulated more, by whatever means, could have more “say”
and would have more sway over those who gathered less. Big Accumulators were
able to control the actions and behavior of Small Accumulators because of their
ability to use their excess accumulation to gift or reward those whose actions
fit with their ends

Paraphrase/ Elaboration/ Abstract of “The Sixteenth Prasad” — by
SillyMickel Adzema

 

Your adoption of a
non-nomadic lifestyle had other pernicious consequences. When you became
sedentary – staying in one place and growing your food, eventually corralling
other planetmates, and so on – you were able, for the first time in your long
evolutionary history, to accumulate. You were able to store food, but other
kinds of "things" as well. This was because when you were nomadic
you, naturally, had to carry everything you wanted to “own”; whereas when you
“nested” you not only did not have to carry possessions but you were able to
create and build storage areas to protect your accumulations. In this way you
gathered and stored more than you could ever possibly need.

 

But it did not end
there, because this development led to another cancerous outgrowth in your
increasing addiction to controlling your experiences as opposed to discovering
the adventure that divinity would have for your development and furthering on
the path back to unity with divinity. This tragic, life-diminishing spinoff of
your ability to gather and accumulate excessive “things” was a desire to
control even those of your own species: Your fellow humans became the last
targets of your mania for control — added to your desires to control your
experiences, the timing of events, your sustenance and food sources…which
involved controlling your planetmates of the Flora and Fauna Kingdoms of
Consciousness…your lifestyles, i.e., becoming sedentary, and so on.

 

Your unplanetmate-like
desire to control expanded your unplanetmate-like greed, and, sadly, you saw
that gathering more enabled you to control the actions of those of you who
gathered less. It was not long before some of your kind discerned that by gathering
and storing excessively – becoming Big Accumulators – they could have more say
and more sway over those who were Small Accumulators.

 

Small Accumulators
were not necessarily less able to gather more. Keep in mind that gathering more
required an obsession and preoccupation with that, thus it required an
unremitting focus on what is now called greed, manipulation, and power. So the
more congenial and less crazed and obsessed of your kind would not wish this,
especially as it required the relinquishing of the other pursuits of life not
involving accumulation – e.g., the relational, emotional, spiritual, and
creative pursuits. Many — who would choose to accumulate only that which was
needed to sustain life and little more, so that time would be available for
more fulfilling pursuits — thought the narrowing of focus to simply possessing
more a sad diminishment of experience, which it was.

 

But this choice to use
some of one’s time in the pursuit of a fulfilling life, as opposed to just the
pursuit of piles of "things," also left them vulnerable to the Big
Accumulators who could tempt and persuade the Small Accumulators to act in concert
with them through promises of gifts and rewards, taken from their stores of
excessive consumption.

 

The stage was set for
Big Accumulators, who had accepted a reduced spiritual and personal richness
for a richness of “things,” to overpower and silence the voices of those who
refused such a diminished richness of experience and narrowing of their
personality – a narrowing of personality that left out the grandeur of
existence more for them than for any other “thing” of Consciousness – living or
“nonliving” – on this planet.
