  •               with shocking clarity

    I heard my mother’s voice
    pronounce my name. And in an instant I passed

    beyond sorrow and terror, and was carried up
    into the imageless

    bright darkness
    I came from

    and am. Nobody’s
    stronger than forgiveness.

  • I cannot believe this.


    I worked so hard to get over this man and his nonsense. I worked so hard to regain my level of confidence after he broke my heart into quite literally a million pieces just 6 months ago…

    And he shows up at my door last night to tell me he made a mistake and wants me????????? WHY? Does he expect me to forget about all the stress and tears he put me through? Am I supposed to just be like “oh okay! Let’s get back together then!” Like what exactly am I supposed to say at this point???

    I hate that I’m even allowing this to affect me. I hate myself for even considering it. I hate myself for crying when I promised myself I would never allow him or the situation to make me cry again. What do I do now? What do I decide?

  • Forgiveness is all about taking care of you, not the person you need to forgive. It’s about putting your desire to feel good before your desire to be right. It’s about takin responsibility for your own hapiness instead of pretending it’s in somebody else’e hands.

  • Excerpted from “Luther’s Outlaw God, Volume 2: Hidden in the Cross”, pp. 117 – 119;

    “Erasmus thought that, taken in total, church history testified against Luther’s gospel by saying that all the saints that have made up what we call “church” are demonstrably on the side of free will… Erasmus determined that if one took care to look at church history, a saint is simply one who argues for free will, and then follows through that assumption with the living demonstration of its truth by effectively ruling one’s own will. Of course, self-rule is not autonomous for Erasmus. It is helped every step of the way by grace…

    … So God’s revelation in the church is both free will and the law, and these explain what history itself is for. God wants you to know he is law, and you are free will in relation to this law. That is the Great Tradition of the orthodox church in a nutshell and is the glue for Erasmus of the narrative of both church and world.

    … Luther simply blows this up…

    … Church history especially reveals opposition to Christ, and then what Christ does to overcome it… History is the story of saintly opposition to God that does not cease unto death, and the greatest opposition does not come from the basest sinners, but those with the highest intellect and moral virtue…

    For Luther, history is the assault on Christ that does not cease until history itself ends… When history ends, so does the law. That law, from beginning to end, accuses sinners of sins – showing us who they are – but law does not reveal the inner heart or will of God. The laws of history are not a glimpse into the hidden mind of God. God’s ways of hiding and revealing himself take place where and when historians are least able to grasp them. God hides outside of preaching, and reveals himself inside of it… Luther’s saint was no longer measured by the law, but by whether the gospel was preached to him. Neither is history measured by that same law. That reversal of sainthood and history is another instance of Luther’s bomb that blows up free will and the theology of God as the law…”

  • 15x14: Striking A Balance

    This is late. I fell behind. Life happens. I still haven’t watched 15x15. Gah! But now to some thoughts on 15x14…

    I thought this was a great episode the first time I watched it. Then I thought it was a bloody fantastic episode the second time I watched it, and the third time… well, it just gets better and better. I’m thoroughly looking forward to the final six. I hope you are too. 

    I hope you’re as well as you can be and that you’re not living in a stress bubble. They’re the worst. I’d hand you a big old needle if I could. Maybe this meta can be some sort of needle (for popping), because at least I don’t feel the ending of this show is anything we need to stress about. I do believe it’s going to be utterly spectacular. *all the faith*

    So I spent a chunk of lockdown watching this show of ours. I started at 12x19 (that episode still makes me tremble with its sheer brilliance) through to 15x13, and felt an overwhelming satisfaction at the evenness of the storytelling for these last three-ish seasons. 

    A brief breakdown of three years of meta writing would be: Dean has been pushed to face, recognise and dismantle his internalised toxic masculinity traits aka his Shadow (which has been the root of unhealthy coping mechanisms and an inability to put down boundaries, communicate openly and handle his emotions), he’s been pushed to see the strength and power of his feminine traits (his nurturing side, his compassion, his protective nature) through being put in situations where he’s had no choice but to open up to being honest with himself, in turn bringing him on a course to him handling his emotions better, as well as the narrative giving us moments where he’s gotten the chance to acknowledge and embrace his neglected inner child. 

    Yes, Jungian doctrine runs like a river through it, what can I say? I’m a fan.

    With Dean as our protagonist, Sam and Cas are both on mirroring journeys, though Sam is Dean’s mirror opposite and Cas is Dean’s mirror likeness. It doesn’t take away from the individual journeys of Sam and Cas: it’s just that their choices and their progression are not determining the course of the narrative. Rather, their choices and progression work to underline and highlight Dean’s growth. Sam and Cas are main characters, but they’re not driving the core of the plot. 

    Make sense? Cool!

    Especially as this also means that Dean’s progression is pivotal for all three of them to actually reach… well, since it’s a word used twice this season why shouldn’t we just go with it? — completion. 

    Which is why my eyes are happily peeled for Dean having moments that display a deepened sense of self-understanding (like his prayer to Cas, where Dean put words on the anger he’s always feeling and how he doesn’t know why or where it’s coming from) (an enormous step toward actually dealing with that emotion) (as self-deception through denial caused by fear of weakness tied to fear of rejection and fear of failure — that’s a mouthful — has always formed Dean’s biggest internal obstacle) because neither Sam nor Cas should, when we look at the narrative as a whole, be able or allowed to reach full completion (or individuation, to use Jungian terms) without Dean getting there first, or at least being shown to be well on his way to getting there.

    This episode then is more of an epicsode, because, man, do we get to explore balanced!Dean, and it’s all through Jack: the narrative representation of Dean’s inner child.

    Oh, yeah. Way I see it, Jeremy Adams brought us right back to the threads he was pulling on in Scoobynatural. *bless his brain* Only this time he’s pushed it a step further and rather than Dean simply facing his inner child—as (14x16 whoops I mean) 13x16 opened up that can of worms—now, in 15x14, Dean is forced to properly acknowledge and embrace that inner child. I mean. The mind crackles. The feels are cascading like a waterfall over a great cliff. The excitement, people, is real.

    Let’s dig in!

    Sam and Dean

    They were glorious this episode!!

    So Sam ended up tortured a little, but that was because he was shooting first, asking questions second, and sure, Mrs. Butters had gone a bit crazy, but as he learned: it wasn’t her fault. It wasn’t her nature, the crazy had been torture-nurtured into her.

    And Dean was faced with yet one more reminder of how kindness, compassion and protectiveness can go haywire when there’s influence from toxic masculinity (aka Cuthbert Sinclair) pushing someone into a position of mistrust, insecurity and need for control. 

    Let me reiterate the fact that when I’m talking masculine/feminine I’m not tying these concepts to gender, though of course these concepts have been tied to gender traits to the point of brainwashing people into thinking they should dictate what is male and what is female. (mental) Rather I mean all of our internal masculine/feminine traits that need to find balance if we are each to feel happy and content as human beings. 

    It’s Tao, and it’s Jung, and it’s beautiful. Is all I’m saying. 

    Digression.

    My point is that in spite of sorting stuff out in their individual arcs, the brotherly relationship was depicted awesomely this episode, with Dean being 1000% supportive of Sam going to get itches scratched with Eileen, to the point of feeling he would rather just handle the sudden turn of events and this new threat by himself, than disrupt Sam and Eileen’s fun times (and by “fun times” I mean sex), and Sam going along for the joyride of holiday celebrations, home cooked meals and the supportive, warm and caring mother figure that they’re both, again, missing in their lives.

    Sam was submissive this episode, following Dean’s opinions on how to best handle Jack (even with Dean being disastrous in the past when stating what Jack needs) which is somewhat frustrating, because Sam has so much more in him, but he also got to show that humongous heart of his, where he understood the root cause of Mrs. Butters’ behaviour and showed compassion, rather than judgement. His compassion has always been one of his most formidable strengths. 

    And, of course, Sam had to ride sidesaddle this episode because if he was putting up any sort of protest—regarding accepting Mrs. Butters as part of the bunker or how best to deal with Jack— Dean wouldn’t have gone through the push for progression, delivered through the representation of his inner femininity that is Mrs. Butters, but primarily through the representation of (and here we go into the deeper digging) his inner child—Jack.

    Dean and Jack

    You know, end of the episode Dean states what is evident throughout: he’s trying. 

    In the opening scene he asks Sam if Jack’s come out of his room, and then he’s the one who goes and knocks on Jack’s door to warn him about Mrs. Butters, placing trust in Jack that he can handle it and will call them if anything gets weird, and he cajoles Jack to come out with the promise of snickerdoodles. All of this subtly shows us that Dean knows what Jack is suffering, and we can be sure of that because we know he’s been there enough times.

    The guilt, the self-blame, as well as the self-doubt underpinning it all, making it difficult to forgive. 

    Because, thing is, Jack is struggling to forgive himself. To accept that it was an accident. He’s waiting for Dean’s forgiveness to give him a marker for whether it’s okay for him to even begin to forgive himself, which is understandable on all the levels of his character progression, but especially when looking at him as a representative of Dean’s inner child.

    So then, why is Dean acknowledging, embracing and nurturing his inner child important?

    Because, when looking at the narrative from the angle where it’s filled with symbolisism to do with Dean’s internal journey (and by extension the internal journeys of all the characters), then Dean’s progression, and especially lack there of, has been closely tied to the fact that he never got to be a kid. 

    He had to grow up fast, got responsibility put on him that was way out of proportion for a four year old child, had to be a father and a mother to his younger brother, and learned to repress and suppress his childish urges, wants and needs through unhealthy coping mechanisms in order to dress himself in the image of the strongerst person that he’s ever known: his father.

    (which is a misnomer because there was plenty of weakness to John Winchester) (especially how he was a highly emotional man who spent the years after his wife’s death driven by grief, but hammered it into his eldest son that emotions are weaknesses that will get you killed and you should control them to the point of barely being able to recognise them anymore) 

    It’s imperitive for Dean to deal with the neglect he suffered in his childhood, rather than ignore it, if he’s ever going to be able to let those wounds heal over. And letting them heal over is important because pushing down trauma leaves it room to influence our choices and to keep us in old patterns of behaviour. Because self-denial and self-neglect is where our Shadow lives and thrives—our unconscious gaining power over us and dictating our behaviour even as we’re unaware of it.

    Remember how Jack swallowed Michael? Remember how Michael was Dean’s Shadow representative? It’s not by accident that what Dean has left to confront, fully, is self-trust, self-forgiveness and finding his way to real self-love, symbolically given to us in this narrative through his treatment of Jack.

    Because Jack is the final piece of Dean’s internal puzzle: his inner child in need of some real TLC.

    So then, what does Dean need in order to be able to show Jack aka himself some real TLC?
