QUIMBANDA - KIMBANDA - MAIORAL & MAYORALS
MAYORAL - ALL ELEMENTAL REALMS/UMBRALS JOINED AND ACTING AS ONE AS ONE INDEPENDENT (INTELLIGENCE & FORCE) WHOSE EXPRESSION & QUALITIES GO BEYOND THIS SPECIES AND ITS SELF-IMPOSED "BELIEF AND LANGUAGE" LIMITATIONS SUCH AS THOSE OF GOOD AND BAD, OF DARKNESS AND LIGHT.
DEFINITIONS OF THIS ELEMENTAL WORLD & TIME-BAND DO HAVE ADEQUATE WORDS TO EXPRESS IN FULL A PAGAN QUIMBANDA-ORIENTED MAIORAL / MAYORAL.
Outside of this "Here and Now", outside of the journeys from cradle to grave, outside the many (Invented-by-this-Species) Belief and Language and their associated (Invented-by-this-Species) Values & Ways of Conduct, outside of this elemental realm, I know that Eternal & Infinite Evolution rules all the Changes which We-All, Everything, All Existence / All Life & All Creation is made of.
When a person finds Quimbanda, it all depends upon that person's own evolutionary place in the scheme of all things, as to how and what that person can take from or give to Quimbanda.
Sometime ago, I had read some of the works of Danilo Coppini, Nicholaj De Mattos Frisvold, Zaydan Alkimin, Carlos Montenegro, Malgorzata Oleszkiewicz-Peralba, Yvonne Daniel, Carlos Evandro Mendonça, Mambo Chita Tann, Peter Grey, Antonio De Bourbon & Galdiano-Montenegro, Aleister Crowley, Gerald B Gardner, Doreen Valiente and others, etc...
It saddens me to see the dear Exu & Pomba-Gira and their many Systems being held hostage, imprisoned to monistic, wilful ignorant and/or intellectually dishonest Christian & Jewish (Abrahamic "Judaic/Christian/Islamic" Mythologies) which are brutal, obsolete, primitive, Patriarchal, anti-Women, anti-GLBT, anti-Freedom, anti-Equal-Rights-For-All, anti-Self-Sufficiency, anti-Academia, anti-Arts, anti-Sciences, anti-Pleasure, anti-Sex and anti-Evolution!
For instance, in Brazil, Pomba-Giras & Exus still peddle the Syncretism-oriented Christian Mythologies, its characters and imagery, from hell to heaven, to other biblical fear-driven rubbish & bullshit!
I had come across dear Exu Pantera, dear Exu Lucifer and the many theatrical, pathetic & fear-driven rubbish added to their descriptions, to their systems and I was saddened by the wilful ignorance, by the wilful intellectual dishonesty of people and souls who refuse to evolve, to grow up and to see beyond the same old rubbish / mythological bullshit invented for their consumption.
I adore my Exus and my Pomba-Giras, I remember, I know and I feel them to be my family, and that includes Exu Pantera & Exu Lucifer, and the Astral Realms / Umbrals are not a playground for Christian, Jewish & Islamic mythologies, their mythological bullshit and the spoiled children who do not wish to grow up!
The Darkness and the Light are contained within each other just alike as Life and Death are contained within each other, Exus and Pomba-Giras entertain the levels of "evolutionary needs" of the people who travel from cradle to grave in these time-bands and elemental worlds such as this Earth, but they do so to those who they choose to assist / help and to evolve along with.
Therefore, it has become quite common for the employment of Christian / Jewish & Islamic mythologies and their characters and motifs.
But no, there is no SATAN, no DEVIL at all except inside of the men-made/invented Mythologies of mainstream Religions.
There are those Exus and Pomba-Giras who see / employ words as Satan & Devil and use them as Titles in order to work with those who subscribe to those types of mythologies.
Exus and Pomba-Giras / Fae in general / Elementals, they may choose to employ Christian / Jewish / Islamic / etc mythological characters names as Titles, as nicknames.
And folks, that it is it!
Nothing more, nothing less!
Amongst the studies of many of Ancient (pre-Christian / pre-Jewish / pre-Islamic) Pagan Goddesses that I work with & that I worship, I've encountered a few dear Goddesses whose names, definitions & attributes were changed / modified in order to be expressed, maligned & vilified as a either a Christian / Jewish demon or satan, or one devil or another and all of that in order to serve, in order to cater to their rubbish patriarchal mythologies & shameful copycats of the spiritual dualism invented by the Persian Zoroaster.
I am a GLBT-Pagan Trans-Priestess of the Pagan Goddess and of the Pagan Horned God, I love Pagan Quimbanda as re-developed without the rubbish / bullshit of Spiritual Dualism and without the wilful intellectual dishonesty, without the wilful ignorance of mainstream religions, without their mythologies and without their belief and language, without their associated values and ways of conduct.
I believe a real Pagan Witch / Sorceress, a real Pagan Occultist, a real Pagan Priestess / Alourixa, she is, she becomes a part of the Family of the Exus & Pomba-Giras / Fae / Elementals. She is / becomes able to be, to know, to see: - "AS is ABOVE, SO is BELOW", the ALL is within us all and WE & EVERYTHING are contained equally within the ALL.
Ergo, all Creation can be found within us, and we can be found within all Creation equally.
The ancient Pagan Goddesses & Gods can found in us all and we can be found in Them equally.
That is my Pagan Quimbanda and I love Quimbanda-Without-Limitations, chiefly without the ones of/from this Species' many stupid inventions and without that sheer fear of eternal and infinite EVOLUTION.
I say, fear not that what you, we all and everything are made of: CHANGE.
And remember, all CHANGE only serve one Master: eternal & infinite EVOLUTION.
Salve Viva All Pomba-Giras & Laroye All Exus!
