How Should I Be? – Advice for the sovereign individual on leadership | Cormac mac Airt

Many people study today’s paradigm in depth and have a good working knowledge of our situational landscape.  However, when we pause to consider solutions we often struggle to articulate what it will take to assemble an alternative course that upholds the moral and reasonable high ground.  If we harken back in time to the Celtic Christian concepts of our Founders, we have only the recollection of their Protestant philosophical roots to draw upon which was sufficient for the tyranny of their time where right and wrong, identity, and purpose was more clear cut.  Today after nearly a century of psychological operations upon the people, the very identity of the People is marred and our course and history is less clear.  Our understanding of the paradigm may be clear but who and what we are on both an individual and collective level is more difficult to grasp.

In this we find it more necessary to delve deeper into our roots for a restoration of that once majestic core identity woven into our human potential.  Thus out of the annals of the most ancient history, come whispers of what the Founders may have at one time known and protected carefully…via a promise of anonymity.   It’s time to remove that anonymity and uncloak what was protected for a new generation in dire need of that small facet of their history.  At this moment the direct provenance is less important to explain than to spend the effort to introduce the content and set the stage for the full restoration of identity.  Through old Laconia, a voice calls you to listen first to the words of the 2nd century Old Irish High King Cormac mac Airt as he spoke to his son Cairbre on the eve of his stepping down from the leadership of Ireland (Eire); his son to step up to that leadership, untried but conscientious of the degree of wisdom he would find needed.  Those words are about leadership and what it takes to be.

In terms of ancient Celtic culture the formulation of Being for the sovereign individual, occurs over many years and with highly detailed training via exposure to knowledge passed down generation after generation.  The words of Cormac comprises not only his own hard earned wisdom over the time of his life, but also that of all leaders and scholars of leadership of every manner and kind who went before him.  This is part of the heritage that was closely guarded by our Founders and in this time of confused identity, is most necessary to resurrect.  The following is but one small excerpt of the advice Cormac gave to his son.  It’s a starting point, not the whole of your inheritance.

QUOTE from the book The Counsels of Cormac: An Ancient Irish Guide to Leadership – A New Translation from the Original Old Irish by Thomas Cleary:

A question, said Cairbre:  How should I be?

That’s easy, said Cormac

Be intelligent to the intelligent, so no one may dupe you by means of intelligence.

Be proud to the proud, so no one may be over you causing you to quiver.

Be humble to the humble, so your will may be done.

Be talkative to the talkative, so you may be respected.

Be silent with the silent when listening to information.

Be hard to the hard, so no one treats you with contempt.

Be soft with the soft, so everyone doesn’t attack.

Cormac also said this: 

One is intelligent until one sells one’s inheritance.

One is foolish until one acquires land.

One is friend until it comes to debt.

One is a judge until it comes to children.

One is slothful until getting married.

One is virile until becoming religious.

One is respected until being defeated.

One is hospitable until refusing.

One is a nomad until homesteading.

One is a servant until one resides in one’s own abode.

One is sound of mind until becoming drunk.

One is sensible until getting enraged.

One is well-behaved until committing sexual misconduct.

One is calm until fostering children.

One is confident until quarreling.

One is free until being denounced.

One is cheerful until misfortune occurs.

One is bold until refused.

One is a pedestrian until one is a charioteer.

All music is noble through the harp.

One who is prosperous is dignified.

One who is wretched is unseemly.

The sweetest sleep is lying together.

The sweetest ale is the first drink.

The sweetest music is music in the dark.

The sweetest person is the worthy one.

A young person who is tractable, humble, obedient, earnest in conscience and confession, will be beloved in youth, esteemed in old age, true in his word, noble in his appearance, high even if lowly, mature though youthful; his destiny with God and humanity will be good.

— This was one small bit of the advice that Cormac gave his son, and it was written down for not only him, but for all people as everyone is sovereign…you were created equal; you are a leader.  Your Being is to be in good standing.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” — The Declaration of Independence.  Jul 4, 2015
Celtic wisdom is most often given in metaphor.  Every piece embodies a subject of knowledge.  It paints a concept landscape.  The book quoted above contains 50 pages of the wisdom of Cormac on leadership.  For the individual serious about reconstructing the character of our heritage, it is this author’s opinion that the content’s of the advice Cormac gave to his son is imperative to learn and understand.  For this reason I strongly recommend the book from which this excerpt comes.  Buy two copies and give one away.   Hard copy can be found on Amazon.com

Excerpt:

Cormac mac Airt (son of Art), also known as Cormac ua Cuinn (grandson of Conn) or Cormac Ulfada (long beard), was, according to medieval Irish legend and historical tradition, a High King of Ireland. He is probably the most famous of the ancient High Kings, and may have been an authentic historical figure, although many legends have attached themselves to him, and his reign is variously dated as early as the 2nd century and as late as the 4th. He is said to have ruled from Tara, the seat of the High Kings of Ireland, for forty years, and under his rule Tara flourished. He was famous for his wise, true, and generous judgments. In the Annals of Clonmacnoise, translated in 1627, he is described as:

“absolutely the best king that ever reigned in Ireland before himself…wise learned, valiant and mild, not given causelessly to be bloody as many of his ancestors were, he reigned majestically and magnificently”.

The hero Fionn mac Cumhaill is supposed to have lived in Cormac’s time, and most of the stories of the Fenian Cycle are set during his reign.

 

Cyrellys:  For the ones who have stayed in this nation to fight the good fight; who have not given up hope. You are in the finest tradition of the ancients who left for you this trail of various bread crumbs to your inheritance; your identity.  It was for you this nation was created, not the statists, corporatists, or Illumines.  You are ROAR.

ROAR: that of an ancient and irrevocable order of things; an undeniable power drawn from the Source.

Labeling Theory of Crime and Impact

By QUINTUS DIAS.  With concern and attention to Harney County Oregon.

The Labeling Theory of Crime and Impact

 

ALIEN TO THE COMMUNITY

 

Avoid being labeled and tagged by the establishment’s MSM as a dangerous alien to the community (Nazi criminal construct). Who does this?

 

  • The courts, the police, moral entrepreneurs, friends, schools and family perceiving you as an alien to the community.
  • The Nazi/Soviet institutions attempted to do this in classifying and categorizing people under the construct of a national security state. Aliens were problematic people and likely enemies of state.

 

  1. If we don’t, then the establishment can basically shove us to the margin with pejorative words, and initiate a long-term criminalization process that may result in your imprisonment or death.

 

TEACHING
III. I used to teach my law and justice students that the establishment has the power to

  • create criminals, deviants, crazies, militants, extremists, radicals, pedophiles, rapists, killers, and other problematic people out of thin
    air by
  • tagging them with long-term denigrating labels (you just read some of them) that serve to discredit you and to marginalize you.

CONSEQUENCES

  • Social groups (the elites and moral entrepreneurs, who perceive you to be a threat may pass criminal legislation-targeting you…THEN
  • organizations (schools, police and the criminal justice system, who are supposed to do something about crime), will jump on you and THEN
  • your friends, parents, and others, who may
    disapprove of your behavior have the latent power to label you as a dangerous social threat based on their reactions to your behavior, words, and attitude.

TAGGING and APPLYING THE LABEL

IV.   Once the label is applied and tagged on to you by the press and becomes common in the public domain, the consequences can be hugely dramatic.  SUCH AS

  • You may be fired by your employer (disruptive or undesirable employee), OR
  • prosecuted (terrorist, sexual deviant, revolutionary), OR
  • jailed, or killed by police (dangerous criminal or radical) without credible evidence to support the charges…KEEP IN MIND-

TERMINAL OUTCOME

  • once you are tagged… the public could care less about you or your fate (good riddance to bad shit!). THIS CAN RESULT IN-

PERVASIVE CRIMINALITY AND SOCIAL CHAOS

V. Those labeled often turn to crime because they have no other
alternative–“they made me a criminal” mindset APPLIES-therefore, I will be the next Bonnie and Clyde and go Clyde or Bonnie one better.

THE CHIEF TAGGERS

VI. The MAIN taggers are: the press, sociologists, psychiatrists, police and judges.  Consequentially, the taggers react to

  • perceived threats caused by a person’s actions, words or general disposition that appears at odds to the norm or to their perception of what the norms should be.
  • There may be no actually criminal offense.  Consider the consequences if the
    press, a psychiatrist, or a girlfriend (husband), a physician, or a judge labels you as a likely sex-offender.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN TAGGED?

VII. What happens when the tag is successfully applied?  Absolute hell!  And that follows you around, especially if it makes the press, or becomes chat on the Internet, or winds up in a file in the police’s criminal intelligence section.

ORIGINS OF LABELING AS CRIME THEORY

VIII. Labeling crime theory became popular during the Civil Rights struggles of the 1960s.  But actually, it goes back a lot further, especially to the

  • intense outlaw period of American history (reconstruction post-civil war: the carpetbagger era, the bank and train robbers, cattle rustlers era to the mobile car bandits of the 1930s).
  • Back then, elites and “Robber Barons” controlled the justice system and the press, as they do now.  Thus, if you refused to sell your land, your business, our your water rights, and sought help from friends or others so dispossessed-
  • The establishment labeled you as BANDITTI-to be killed
    on the spot by putting you on a criminal wanted list as bounty.
  • Once the label was applied and with the innovation and use of the telegraph and telephone [followed on by the computer and the Internet] there was no place you could hide to escape the label.
  • Bounty hunters and professional killers, like the Pinkerton Agency did not care if you were innocent.  They collected fees by either capturing you or killing you
    (wanted: dead or alive).
  • Think the criminal justice system a hugely profitable establishment business.

THE CJ SYSTEM IS A BUSINESS

  1. This is why you see the MSM and establishment officials constantly tagging people they do not like or are afraid of as: militant, deviant, Constitutionalist, sovereign citizen, revolutionary, criminal-minded, extremist, armed, radical, crazy and so on. It fuels the justice system as a vast business enterprise where lawyers, police, technicians, prison wardens, jailers, judges, coroners, funeral homes, and prosecutors can make money.

ISOLATION AND CONTAINMENT

X. Today, labeling agencies and taggers center on isolating you from the mainstream, turning people against you, and prompting you to commit desperate acts just to survive.  If you commit a crime in your survival quest, then they have you and there is no escape!  How do you escape from being tagged as an EX-CON?

AN EXAMPLE

Aamon Bundy is now forever engraved in people’s minds aone or more of the following-

  • Armed Militant
  • Militia member
  • Crazy
  • Social Disruptor
  • Revolutionary
  • Agitator
  • Unsavory (based on views that his friends are unsavory low-life trash).

THE UPSHOT

XI. My sense is that we need to turn around the tag applied to a good and decent man-LaVoy Finicum is now forever labeled as an armed and crazed militant (nobody wants to get shot unless they are crazy, right?).

NOTE: the alternative media also has the power to label and tag AND WE MUST DO THIS because-

 

  • the establishment just killed THE QUINTESSENTIAL AMERICAN COWBOY HERO (The rugged, independent, brave and stoic horseman–the Marlboro Man [forget the cigarettes]), and right before our eyes.

 

  • Always keep this in mind… The establishment’s Illumines always kill you twice.  In the first instance, they kill you physically.  In the second, they kill your reputation.

 

  • We can do the same with the independent media…and must stop playing nice.

 

  • We are in a war and the enemy is shooting and killing us.

Spanish Celts and Amazigh

CALLING THE TRIBES TOGETHER "Sleepers if I bid you rise, would you stand before me and be counted among the strong? From the shadows of time we live once more, that our cauldron may succor a world in need; a world of great potential.  We be of one blood thou and I." ~ The whisper heard between the ancient feminine archetype to its modern counterparts.

Links between Spanish Celts and the Amazighs of North Africa
Dear Sirs,

I have been following your series of articles on Message to Eagle Forum with a great deal of interest, which brings me to the subject at hand.  I was raised in Spain and lived there for many years.

I am of Celtic descent, related to the Campbell and McCloskey Highlander warrior clans of Scotland. While in Spain I lived at times in Galicia.  I became aware of a similarity in customs, dress, and origins of the Galicians to the Gaels in Ireland, and in Scotland.  Many of the Gaels in the UK and in Spanish Galicia appear to be redheads.
However, I am on a quest to know more about the original inhabitants of Spain, Los Berberos or the Amazigh people.  My research indicates that the Berbers of Spain are related to the Amazighs or Berbers of North Africa.  They share similarities of music tradition, instruments, singing styles and physical characteristics.  The Amazighs claim Hannibal as one of their own.  We know that Hannibal and his father, Hamilcar had deep roots in Spain, and that many of his warriors were from Spain.  Moreover, we also know that Hannibal, and the Carthagian warriors were greatly feared by the Romans.  Additionally, the Amazighs hint at some relationship with Atlantis.
There appears to be a credible body of evidence to suggest that the Berber culture of Spain fused with the later arriving Celts and produced a rich and unique new civilization in Spain.  Yet, much of the history of this fusion has been lost.
Today, the Amazighs of North Africa, from Egypt to Morocco are emerging from the shadows of history.  They are reaching across borders in North Africa and across the sea to their relatives in Spain in an apparent quest to become a nation.
Many Spanish researchers and Amazigh scholars have noted the similarities in physical appearance, dress, icons and symbols, and red hair between the Amazighs and the descendants of the Celts in Spain.  Moreover, the Amazighs tattoo their bodies, paint their faces in blue paint, and retain many of the horned helmets and other decorative fixtures found among the ancient Celts of Britain.
Consequently, many are asking if the Celts and the Berbers are the same people.  If they are, then this poses implications of enormous importance.  First, the Amazighs claim they are not Arabs.  Moreover, they claim that Islam was forced upon them.  Third, they also view the Arabs and their functionaries in present day Egypt, Algeria, Tunisia and in Morocco as interlopers, much the same as the white French, English and Spanish colonial overlords in North Africa.  Finally, they are being persecuted and abused in North Africa, and there is a growing irredentist movement among them in North Africa, which may erupt in violence.

We live in a world where the divorce of dreams and their practical implementation is almost complete

I kindle my soul at the forge of the Soul-Smith, spark of life, spark of love, spark of light, companion my quest this day till I come home at twilight.

I am consciously striving each day to improve the circumstances of my world.  It is a walking journey along a route most people drive but do not strive to leave some trace of their passing, not intentionally anyway.  Survival takes up the bulk of everyone’s time.  I am as a land sovereign; an Earth sovereign, constantly considering my relationship to the world and with the world.  It’s not always about kindling a more harmonious relationship between other people and the world.  The manifestation of that relationship allows me to measure all the plans I participate in throughout life…are they on target, realistic, achievable?  Is the music those plans create, reverberating across the plain a geantraigh (joy strain), that leaves the heart of the land and the collective soul of man a little brighter or a little lighter?  Have I unlocked the doors of souls around me and drawn them further toward truth where they may construct their own wisdom?

I am in the place between sun and moon, where the lightning flash strikes ~ Ross Nichols.

All spiritual traditions have their mediators, who “stand between sun and moon”, but the world does not usually know them.  While the work is not secret, it is usually performed behind the scenes.  Great mediators do not produce many manifest works.  Instead their works are like a satellite, which receives signals and transmits them to the world at large.  For most of us the function of mediation is to be in the right time and the right place simultaneously.  The purposes of spirit are not known to us, but we do sometimes have the feeling of being at the place where lightning strikes, the sense that we are called to conduct a feeling or meaning that is greater than our personal comprehension.  It is then that we briefly stand in the shoes of the mediators.  ~  Caitlin Mathews on The Art of Mediation.

My conscious striving as a product of the Soul-Smith entails the bridging of realities for the greater needs of the world and the peoples within it.  If the need is there and I am called, it is less my place to ask why than to apply all my words and movements with intention rather than for effect.  The rest takes care of itself!

Before sleeping hold your inspired plans and visions in your heart as you recite the following prayer.  The goal is to subsequently be attentive in the days that follow to the clues, intuitive inclinations, and relational pathways that open to your dreaming:

Dreams grow holy put in action,
Work grows fair through starry dreaming;
But where each flows on unmingling,
Both are fruitless and in vain.
May the stars within this gleaming, 
Cause my dreams to be unchained.
~  Caitlin Mathews, Celtic Devotional.
I know that every intention produces an effect.  I don’t have to focus on producing an effect, only on properly constructed intention through the energizing grace of spirit.  I believe in the energizing grace of the spirit, thus I am manifest in every step of intention.  The workings of the world are not half as complicated as many people make them out to be.  If you think; if the cogs inside your mind turn with or without grease, then you are participating in that working whether you realize it or not.   This means it is worthwhile to put a small effort into thinking well.

I See Fire Hollowing Souls

oh should my people fold and
surely I’ll do the same
come find in mountain holes we
got too close to the flame
calling out father, oh,
hold fast and we will
watch the flames watch the flames burn over and on
the mountain side
desolation comes upon the sky

and if the night is burning i will cover my eyes
for if the dark returns then my brothers will die
and as the sky is falling down it crashed into this lonely town
and with that shadow on the ground I hear my people screaming out

Manipulation and manufacture of our current events are deeply tied to a subculture that strongly believes the world is over-populated and grown beyond the control of the few who manage the plantation.  Many tools are utilized in culling the herd, including the revolving door of wars, social attrition, political conscription, pitting racial groups against one another, non-lethal weapons applied in obscure lethal ways, lesser known weapons of mass destruction (bio-warfare, socio-political stress, external invasion), and restriction on intellectual acumen via control of academia, media and media tools.

Currently the halls of power are populated with hollow souls producing every effort toward manufacturing a global cataclysm.

What you don’t know CAN kill you.

Fire on the mountain, must find the harp of gold, played to wake the Sleepers, oldest of the old.  In the shadow of America’s founding has lived one of the oldest cultures in the world….the Celtic Mind.  Wake, for you have been called.

It is not enough to listen.  It is not enough to see.  It is only through the hand of action that you can be part of the paradigm sufficiently enough to have a say in the outcome.  There is no surviving this level of tyranny through hiding or silence.

There are those who wished to know at what point prior to the horrors of WWII, Stalin, Mao, and others was the time they could have averted what occurred.

Well this is your time.  Choose wisely.

We be of one blood, thou and I ~ Rudyard Kipling
