First London TV, now this:
From a female screenwriter
I found you on you-tube because I was searching out information on the Tantric principals for a movie I am working on. I really think you are something else and would love to work on a script with you in it. I too believe that the shadow government is ruling the Earth and have a TV pilot I am working on called," New World Anarchist" about this topic!
You are a lovely person so full of life you brought a smile to me face and you are also very intelligent you reminded me of Marilyn Monroe. I would love to correspond with you! When watched you I thought about a variety of potential roles for you and movie ideas the one I like best is a pseudo-comedy about
" a female avatar who comes to Earth to destroy the repressive constrictions of the Patriarchal rule and enlighten the masses to the old ways, where the woman leave their homes and go on sabbatical to learn from you . I have to tell you I love comedy with an intellectual twist."
I do hope you write me,
I am currently working on a script about a dakinni who brings a soul out of purgatory. She uses tantra to help enlighten him. any insight into the tantric principals or rituals would be greatly appreciated.
RASA THE WILD AND WHACKY THING ABOUT THIS LAST PART, IS THAT IT IS ACTUALLY TRUE, I AM AN AVATAR, MOTHER GOD ON EARTH, AND THIS WOMAN OBVIOUSLY PICKED IT UP. I WAS SENT BY GOD TO HELP DESTROY PATRIARCHY AND RESTORE MATRIARCHY. ALL HAIL MOTHER GOD ON EARTH AND IN INFINITY!
WHO WAS MARIJA GIMBUTAS AND WHAT IS HER SIGNIFICANCE?
MARIA GIMBUTAS, ARCHAELOGIST/ SCHOLAR, SINGLE HANDEDLY DUG OUT AND RESEARCHED PROOF CONCERNING ‘OLD EUROPE’ – AND ITS ‘GODS AND GODDESSES’. WITH THE RADICAL THEORY THAT A MOTHER GOD, WOMAN PROGENITOR, WOMAN REGENERATOR, WAS REVERENCED FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS IN EUROPE BEFORE PATRIARCHY.
THEY WANTED US TO BELIEVE THAT THERE NEVER WAS A MATRIARCHY, THERE IS NO PROOF OF IT – THEY TRIED TO ERASE OUR HISTORY! EVEN TODAY, THERE ARE MALE AND FEMALE ACADEMICS WHO INSIST THERE IS NO PROOF OF MATRIARCHY WHEN IT IS THOROUGHLY PROVEN! THE MALES WANT US TO BELIEVE THE ONLY SOCIETY THAT EVER EXISTED IS ONE BASED ON VIOLENCE, AND THAT IS HOW IT MUST BE!
FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS, THE PALEOLITHIC AND NEOLITHIC ERAS WHICH MARIJA STUDIED, THERE WERE NO WEAPONS FORGED AND NO EVIDENCE OF ANY ORGANIZED WARFARE. PEOPLE LIVED IN PEACE – UNDER THE POWER OF A GODDESS/ WOMAN/ MOTHER,FOR A TIME LONGER THAN PATRIARCHY HAS EXISTED! – THE EARTH WAS SACRED, WOMEN WERE RESPECTED; THEY WERE THE UNDISPUTED LEADERS THERE WAS PEACE ON EARTH!
WOMEN INVENTED LANGUAGE, AGRICULTURE, POTTERY, WEAVING, ART, MUSIC, AND ALL THINGS WERE UNDER FEMALE SUPERVISION.
NOW MALES CAME FROM THE RUSSIAN STEPPES, CALLED ‘KURGANS’ AND IN THREE VIOLENT SWEEPS OVER A THOUSAND YEARS, ATTACKED AND RAVAGED OLD EUROPE, BRINGING FALSE GODS ‘IN THE SKY’, A FATHER GOD AND PATRIARCHAL ‘CULTURE OF DEATH.’
WOMEN WOULD SOON BE REDUCED, THROUGH VIOLENCE, INTO SEX AND BREEDING OBJECTS, MALE SLAVES TO PRODUCE PEOPLE FOR EXPLOITATION AND WAR, A PATTERN, A TRAP, TO DESTROY HUMANITY. THIS HAS LEFT THE BLOOD OF UNTOLD MILLIONS OF MEN AND WOMEN (AND ANIMALS) ON THEIR HANDS.
THEY LITERALLY ERASED THE HISTORY OF WOMEN, EXPROPRIATING CREDIT FOR ALL THINGS WOMEN HAD DONE, STEALING THEIR INVENTIONS, THEIR WISDOM, THEIR CIVILIZATION, THEIR RELIGION AND RITUALS, PERVERTING IT, TURNING IT ALL UPSIDE DOWN – ALL THE WHILE KILLING WOMEN, ESPECIALLY THE WISEST ONES – AS THEY WENT ALONG
CIVILIZATION DID NOT START WITH SUMERIA AND EGYPT; THAT IS THE TIME THAT MALES ESTABLISHED THEMSELVES AT THE HEAD OF A CULTURE ALREADY WORKED OUT BY FEMALES OVER MANY THOUSANDS OF YEARS.
