At the end of the day, the ubermensch Charles Manson is locked up in a cage like an animal, and this because he is a sick and demented individual:
Does he know himself? Yes. But what does he do with that knowledge? How does he feel about that knowledge? Evidently, Manson, like so many crazy
unbalanced gnostic "geniuses" before him, such as the Nazi lunatic Karl Maria Wiligut, imperiously believed he could do what he wanted - and by doing
so - would 'teach' mankind immortal truths - just as other chaos worshipers who asininely believe their stupidity and havoc teaches, or at least shows
others they can do what they want and 'never really' be impeded by others: it suits their dimwitted and myopic ethos that only spiritual (i.e.
internal) truth matters, while the realm of appearance - the plane in which he hypnotizes unwitting youths to mutilate and murder - is completely
irrelevant. Whatever. He's in a cage like the animal he is. I'm sure in his mind he thinks hes living out some theosophic gnostic drama, enunciated by
the paradox of an inner freedom and a material arrestment, and I'm sure people like the OP are really impressed by that.
It's sick, and only someone as sick and ill guided as him, someone as mislead by neo-gnostic ramblings could honestly look at this guy and seriously
wonder whether he was merely and superficially 'misunderstood' by a spiritually unawakened public - your so called "mortals" (I can already see from
what spiritual angle you're coming from) when in fact he is a genius! People who don't think very deeply might think that, or be inclined to wonder
whether he was in fact 'enlightened', but I choose to see him in a healthy sense: he was a sick man who consciously and deliberately led innocent
people to kill; he defiled them mentally and emotionally, and he did so because he felt 'compelled' by a higher wisdom. And this 'wisdom' i.e. an
emotion, he could not criticize: to criticize means to 'exercise' moral restraints, which is to acknowledge a power outside ones own self: therefore,
the whimsical command which issues from his own sordid soul, that demands some blood sacrifice, he zealously obeyed. Perhaps even here there is a
deeper theology for what he thinks is happening (It's also clear that roman polansky, who once used anton lavey as an advisor for one of his movies,
was involved with the occult; his wife, sharon tate, was also apparently involved with witchcraft)
Gnostics - the type which loathe the question of right and wrong - are by far the most psychotic human beings that walk our planet. They build an
entire metaphysical doctrine around their very misplaced emotional leanings: Manson wanted to incite a race war between blacks and whites in America.
Did he accomplish that? Do these #heads ever fulfill their retarded fantasies? No - time and again - they all end up the same: either dead - young -
or dead, addicted to some drug, or end up in an insane asylum. These so called "gods" almost always end up pilloried by life itself: and yet none of
them ever figure out that God, or the process of Karma - is censuring their ways: They try to master a force which they are simply too impotent - as
mere human beings - to possess.
I throw in my self with God - with Being; There is no center of gravity, no power more powerful than then being of creation, who is God in the truest
and most Absolute sense: unlike those crude minded ones, I recognize an inherent feebleness in mans constitution, that even if we can retrace back
into a void and find there a ineffable power, I still recognize what logic - empirical fact - beckons man to see: that we aren't gods, but creatures
of a Creator: and instead of rebelling and fighting this Creator, as gnostics are taught, I try to live in tune with the way - the Tao - of creation,
with Gods will: I follow the law of righteousness because it is right, and I cower, indeed, before my conscience which wisely guides me in the right
I'd prefer to live happily, and peacefully, then entertain vain hopes of grandeur.
