For Whom The Bell Tolls [*POEM MEDITATION with video*]

“No man is an Iland, intire of itself; every man is a peece of the Continent, a part of the maine [sea]; if a clod bee washed away by the Sea, Europe is the lesse, as well as if a Promontorie were, as well as if a Mannor of thy friends or if thine own were; Any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in Mankinde;  And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee.”

— John Donne, Meditation XVII, 1623, original spelling.
(source of the title of Ernest Hemingway’s 1940 novel)

  1. “No man is an island, every man is a piece of the whole” — rally cry of the Communists everywhere.

    The attack on the individual never ceases, for the weak need the whole to survive. Just read Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged to understand that all progress is by the individual, the thinker who does not conform to the norm. The individual survives by his strength, not by going along to get along. And now that strategy is a potential death sentence.

    Now the normies face their biggest challenge, shall they stay safely in the herd and get vaxxed, or stand on their principles of self ownership and flee the green pasture of conformity. It is a daunting choice, who has the strength to give up privilege of air travel?

    Which one are you, do you cave under pressure to conform? Do you allow fear to rule your soul? I think this whole vaxx episode is a huge test of your soul. It reeks of divine manipulation of men, the ultimate test by the Lords of chaos. This vaxx thing is a curve ball that is going to fool the masses, and we have projections of a greatly reduced population by the elites. We know their goal, they printed it in stone (Georgiea Guidestones) and they have announced their intentions to use in music, videos, movies, and position papers by the learned men of institutes.

    They want us dead, they have given us a choice. Get vaxxed, take the chip, get the 666 and you can enjoy your life.

    I believe in myself, I believe you can only be free if you hold to the ideal that one must be true to thyself and to hell with what other people want. Other people are misinformed and compromised. Look at the massive illegal drug use, the massive pharma drug use, the massive amount of lying and cheating to survive in an inflated bank note society.

    Humanity is a sea of compromised men. I say do not conform. Never give in to evil.

    The rebel yell of Jack of the Yukon. LOLROFL

    1. Hi Yukon Jack
      The experience of the unity of life should not be confused with the behaviour of sheeple!

      “No man is an island, every man is a piece of the whole” — rally cry of the Communists everywhere.

      The attack on the individual never ceases….. BLAH … BLAH … BLAH …

      No, this beautiful meditation by John Donne with its opening sentence “No man is an island, every man is a piece of the whole”, is most emphatically not about Communism or the promotion of Communism. I doubt that Lasha Darkmoon posted this meditation here in order to promote Communism and the death of individualism. Nor does she expect you to disparage her offering or spit upon it in the way you do by your sneering opening sentence. You are getting too big for your cowboy boots, mister.

        1. The above comment, to which you refer, was not written by Madame Butterfly. It was written by ME, Alice. You get easily confused and are obviously suffering from “brain fog”.

          In any case, thanks for the compliment. I was doing my best to give you “a fairly decent reply”. And I’m glad to see I succeeded. 🙂

      1. @ Yukon Jack

        You write: “They want us dead, they have given us a choice. Get vaxxed, take the chip, get the 666 and you can enjoy your life.”

        This is all very well, but it has nothing whatever to do with John Donne’s inspired meditation which you seek to rubbish with your irrelevant ravings about the Covid vaccine. If you have nothing uplifting or complimentary to say about Donne’s beautiful neditation, you would do well to keep silent and take your braggadocio and masturbatory narcissism elsewhere.

        “I believe in myself,” you brag. “I believe you can only be free if you hold to the ideal that one must be true to thyself and to hell with what other people want. Other people are misinformed and compromised. Look at the massive illegal drug use, the massive pharma drug use, the massive amount of lying and cheating to survive in an inflated bank note society.”

        I feel very sorry for you, your sad little man. This is John Donne’s piece. It is not a forum for you to brag about yourself and tell us what a great nonconformist you are. We don’t want to hear about you or be forced to listen to your masturbatory ravings in praise of yourself. You believe in yourself? Fine! But no one else does. I certainly don’t. You evoke in me nothing but revulsion.

        If you need to keep jerking off in public, Mister, I suggest you get your own website and do it there. After all, that’s all your previous websites were: literary excursions into an onanistic fantasy world. You never grew up, you poor little boy, you were always wanking away in your dark little corner of the universe.

        You are spoiling this website for me because I see you as a source of evil infection. A walking spiritual virus. I wish you would have the decency to make your way to Incogman or some other distasteful little site for rednecks, KKK racists, and semi-morons. You can jerk off there to your heart’s content. The Darkmoon site is too good a site for the likes of you.

        The Darkmoon site, let me remind you, is a cultured site for pro-Christians and devout skeptics in search of God; it is not a masturbatorium for anti-Christian onanists.

        1. @ ADMIN

          (1) Get rid of this creep, Yukon Jack. Or there will be a mass exodus from this website soon. The best will leave, and the worst will remain to keep this compulsive wanker company.

          (2) If he responds to this comment or refers to me in any way, I want you to DELETE HIS COMMENT. AT ONCE! Anything this man says to me, after all, is non-consensual VERBAL RAPE. He is an online rapist, pure and simple, using the Darkmoon site as his rapist military base.

          (3) I repeat: delete his response to me! DELETE IT!!! I don’t wish to read his response and thereby become infected by the spiritual virus he carries with him wherever he goes. The man is a walking, talking TOXIN.

          1. Take a look in the mirror you raving psycopath:

            “Anything this man says to me, after all, is non-consensual VERBAL RAPE.”

            You hypocrite, you accused me of rape in recent previous comments. You machine gun ad hominen attacks because you have nothing between your ears. You have no argument, you have no reasoning ability, you are mad as hell that someone kicked you off your high covid horse.

            You order admin to delete my comments because you can not offer a reasoned defense, so you resort to slander, ad hominen, mud slinging, defamation of character. This reflects heavily on you, not me.

            I bet you proudly walk around wearing a mask virtue signalling to the world what a good compliant sheep you are. You are a very sick individual, hiding behind Christianity when you are obviously a perjorative flinging Jewish woman who can’t stand the idea that your most precious inner beliefs are dead wrong.

            Covid doesn’t exist and if you think it does you are wrong. You never had to wear a mask or get vaxxed. And if you did get vaxxed then good luck because the intention of the elites is to kill the sheeple, and you being the good obedient sheep went right along with their kill agenda, and you blow your top when people like myself expose the agenda and state the truth. Truth is your enemy.

          2. “Get rid of this creep, Yukon Jack. Or there will be a mass exodus from this website soon.”

            WRONG!! RIDICULOUS!!

            Write for yourself, not others.

            I’ll NOT LEAVE because of one commenter!! Even though dozens have tried, ALL have failed to push me away. 💥😜

            1. G’d bless you for your staying power!
              I admire you for your pluck and moral stamina! 🙂

              Me, I would probably have chickened out long ago. I cannot bear too much hatred . . . it saddens me.

    3. YJ –
      In the alternative….
      “No man is an island, every man is a piece of the whole” — rally cry of the CAPITALIST SALESMEN everywhere!!!

      Without others… there are NO BUYERS!! NO SALES!! 💥 😉

  2. Personal experience of the unity of life is a wondrous life changing event.

    Due to possible damage to the brain and concomitant blocking of deeper higher states … I don’t recommend the chemical ticket to experiencing the unity of life. but Alan Watts did recommend psychedelic drugs. A book I highly recommend in which he describes an extended drug trip of his own us this one:

    “1962 — The Joyous Cosmology: Adventures in the Chemistry of Consciousness”

    In searching for it I found this quote that suggests Christianity is obstructive to sensing the unity of life:

    It has perhaps never occurred to Christians that when they design a church on the model of a royal court (basilica) and prescribe church ritual, they are implying that God, like a human monarch, is afraid. This is also implied by flattery in prayers:

    “O Lord our heavenly Father, high and mighty, King of kings, Lord of lords, the only Ruler of princes, who dost from thy throne behold all the dwellers upon earth: most heartily we beseech thee with thy favor to behold….7”

    The Western man who claims consciousness of oneness with God or the universe thus clashes with his society’s concept of religion.

  3. ALICE
    There’s only one reaction to your reaction to YUKON….
    Your words are exactly what one would expect to hear from the typical herd animal…
    You’re proving his point…
    I do think he oversimplified things though…
    We’re all drops of water in the same ocean.. ok…
    And sooner or later We’re all beholden to our neighbor…
    But there are always leaders too…
    Innovaters…
    In a naturally occurring aboriginal tribe they are the ones obviously best suited to the job….
    The fearful thing about communism is the progress, if any, is censored through central headquarters….
    Religions like catholicism and judaism promote that methodology on earth with their almighty god…
    And they’re both fully behind the communist immigrant invasion…

    1. @ Barkingdeer

      I admire your comments and your basic decency. So I would urge you, in your own interests, to steer clear of Yukon Jack. He is bad news. Very bad news. Any site he invades becomes rotten to the core sooner or later and implodes from within. This will happen to Truthseeker and the Darkmoon site if they don’t take steps to evict this Source of Satanic Infection.

      You will suffer spiritual cancer if you associate with this man. He will take you down with him. I know what I am saying. Please be careful not to get too close to this man or to encourage him in any way. If you do, some of his evil karma will rub off onto you and give you a crippling psychomatic illness. So please, I beg you, be very careful and give the man a wide berth.

      Everything Alice says about this wretched man is true, but she doesn’t see the whole picture as I do. He is far worse than anything Alice imagines.

  4. Thanks Everybody and No Offense…
    At this point the management, who should certainly have a clear opinion of Yukon, are not only allowing him to comment, they’re publishing his full-length articles…
    That tells me they’re not real worried about any negative effects…
    They don’t have him pegged for a virus…
    And also that his more vociferous critics should probably get back in their cages and not make demands of censorship on ADMIN… Disagreeable statements don’t rate that…
    This is actually a Free Thought Hall, where adverse opinions are considered valuable…
    When it turns into a party platform of some kind, a lot of us will go elsewhere…
    Rather than try to squash the guy, how about some thoughtful responses to his postulations?
    I do not generally promote YJ’s comments…
    I think he’s often wrong, but he is a good contributor…
    If you’re willing to have controversy…

  5. Admin

    Are you gaslighting me again? When someone makes an over the top unwarranted viscious attack why do you not allow a response from the defendent?

    This site is weird. I had to edit comments on my blogs, any ad hominen or extremely negative response was deleted because it is destructive to any rational discussion.

    This false argument of the protagonist “appeal to authority” needs to be challenged.

    1. @ Yukon Jack

      Ah, so here we have it at last! An outright attack on Admin for “gaslighting” you. Didn’t take you long to show yourself in your true colors, did it?

      Admin actually did you the honour of turning one of your mediocre comments into a feature article, giving you the attention you crave and allowing you to bask in the limelight for a few moments of glory. You should have thanked Admin for this compliment and shown some gratitude.

      Instead, you attack Admin. You accuse Admin of “gaslighting” you! Are you out of your mind? Admin has not addressed a single comment to you on this thread. Other people have attacked you. Not Admin.

      So why are you attacking Admin. you stupid man?

      1. He is attacking Admin because he is mentally deranged. Nothing could be more obvious. Madness seeps from every pore of this loonie latchet. Imagine attacking Admin when Admin has just published an article by him, albeit a crappy article that should have remained a comment.

        1. @ Yukon Jack

          Commenters have attacked you here because you have no idea how to behave. The original article you “wrote” — actually, you didn’t even write it, you copy pasted it! — was about Covid 19. It was NOT about the evils of Christianity. Instead of concentrating on the subject matter, Covid-19 and its bitter legacy, you went off at a tangent and began to rant and rave about Christianity. This you did on a PRO-Christian site well aware of its basic rules.

          # 12. All anti-Christian comments disrespecting the person of Jesus Christ and mocking the New Testament will be regarded as an attack on the cherished values of our Christian ancestors. All such comments will be deleted at once. If you you happen to be a Satanist, pedophile, potential serial killer, or aficionado of sexual perversion in general, please stay away from our site. Find some other online forum that caters to your degenerate tastes and leave us in peace at the Darkmoon site. If this is “censorship”, so be it.

          https://www.darkmoon.me/comment-policy-and-general-guidelines/

          Why did you go out of your way to diss Admin and the other Christians on this website by barging in here and giving us all this anti-Christian HATE SPEECH?

          Admin has been extraordinarily patient with you, Yukon Jack. I think it is time you were exposed as a potentially dangerous sociopath with a serious mental disorder and a possible criminal record. As they say, there’s no smoke without fire. Why would all these different women accuse you of sexual abuse and sexual violence if you were totally innocent? They’d have no motive, would they? They seem to be locals who know you well. They look like whistleblowers to me.

          I don’t think, in any case. that you shouldn’t be allowed to wander all over the internet and spew your venomous God hatred over spiritual sites like Darkmoon and Truthseeker. I think someone ought to write to the editors of all the sites you infest and pass on all this info about you: that you are a highly dangerous sociopath with a suspected police record for sexual violence against women.

          It’s time you were outed and exposed, Yukon Jack. Yes, t’s time someone pulled the rug away from under your feet.

          1. On a spring day in the year 415CE a Pagan noblewoman emerged from the library in Alexandria and called for her chariot.

            Hypatia entered a public square near the Caesarean Church where she was attacked by the Christian mob, and beaten to death. Then the Christian crowd dismembered her body.

            Since that day, the self-righteous Christian mob have run rampage throughout the entire world, slaughtering and stealing as they see fit.

            Yes, it’s about time someone pulled the rug away from under your Christian feet and as the U.S.A has elected itself the home of the self-righteous Christian parasites then so the dice are cast for the destruction of America.

            Tell me something, how lucky do you feel?

  6. The ultimate purpose of the world lies not within the world but in transcendence of the world. Just as you would not be conscious of space if there were no objects in space, the world is needed for God to be realized. You may have heard the Buddhist saying: “If there were no illusion, there would be no enlightenment.” It is through the world and ultimately through you that God can be realized. You are here to enable the divine purpose of the universe to unfold. That is how important you are! Was Jesus the son of God? Yes. But so are you. You just haven’t realized it yet.I believe that Jesus realized his oneness with God and he showed, what he attempted to do was show the way to all of us, how to realize our own onenes with God also, so he’s a precursor.
