I am Rikimaru; I am Shadow

Writer, Poet, Social Commentator



My thoughts and opinions might be regarded as extreme in many cases and I do not intend to apologize about them. However, I have done my best to keep them to myself.

I have not posted in a week and although I have several valid excuses, why this happened, I cannot understand it. I have never been guilty of any severe attachment to physical possessions until recently when I found myself without the aid of some of my acquired technology and what a devastating effect it had on me!

I moaned and mopped endlessly in despair at all things and nothing in particular, evading the gnawing conviction within my spirit that I was now a drone; programmed, directed and guided to feel exactly how I felt at that precise moment: Lost and helpless.

I think back to all that I know to be true and I remember a time to come when people will be asked to receive a mark, a sign of an empire, an age to come to which the world would flock and accept gullibly without question. It is this mark that would set them apart for the battle of the end. It is a mark to dread, to denounce for it portends evil and doom; a mark that sets many against their beginning and leads them to their end.

Alas, I cannot but feel like we all are slowly but surely being conned, duped into the very thing we long to denounce but are helpless against.

We will accept the mark not of force but because we want it, understand it, need it. It will be already around us, everyday, our daily companion. It will be part of us and no matter how much we watch, we will never see it coming.

He will not come with horns or a tail that set him apart and depict his rightful name. No. His apparel will be the cloak of the average man, his words shall be of intellect and his acts shall unite the world to destroy it, for his aim shall be to reign, as it was in the beginning.

I have read of these things and I believe them, but I do not intend to see them.

I believe only in one thing… and it is not he.

Wisdom is needed here. Let the one with understanding solve the meaning of the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. His number is 666. *

    Sounds and feels true already.

    Food for serious thought, thought for so much food.

    Hmm…quite thought provoking. I have on my part always maintained that there is some insidious conspiracy of sorts which is bent on making zombies, technological junkies and helpless addicts of us all thus conditioning us for the grand finale of the revelation of the man of sin and his ensign. Thumbs up man.

    Here’s the thing- have you noticed how everything is slowly being linked/unified? Now all our emails, twitter, facebook, etc are being linked/ We need passwords for everything? We no longer really go to the bank and do over-the-counter transactions but use coded cards? Everything is being coded…with GPS to locate you? What about Google Earth? Even that Facebook location thing?

    My bro, it is inevitable and we have been told/warned. Now…let’s hope the Rapture saves us from the more insidious part of this great trial to come.

      Perfect thought Sifa… It is a deliberate well thought out plan and even the executors have no idea!

      If only the church was that systematic.
