Titles for Shao'Rahk

Other titles I've come up with for Shao'Rahk, the Aspect/Face of Shao'Kehn that is The Savage One, from the fable "Of That Which Is Savage". This list is not done by far, but there are at least 25 titles here. The ones in bold are my favorites. Ones in italics are my second favorites. Bold AND underline are my favorite favorites.

Titles of Shao'Rahk:

The Putrid One, Queen of Filth, Lady of Vileness, Eater of Feces, The Putrescent One, Drinker of Vomit, The Necrotic One, Patroness of Fungi, Empress of Putrefaction, Mother of Maggots, The Scavenger, Sister of Slime, The Feral One, The Savage Queen, Patroness of Pus, Duchess of Disease, Baroness of Bile, Baroness of Barren-ness, Mistress of Miscarriage, Abottess of Abortion, Mother of Mutation, Eater of Afterbirth, Born Of A Yellow Ocean, The Red Queen, Sacred Murderess, The Butcheress, The Free-est Soul, Harbinger of Happiness, Waif of Waste, Wastrel of Wastefulness, Eater of Sorrow, The Rotten Cunt, The Burning Member, Divine Tapeworm, The Parasite, The Malodorous One, Offalescent Queen, Desecrator of Corpses, The Necrophillic Bitch-Goddess, Eater of the Living, Eater of the Dead, The Unclean One, Insanity's Lover, Drinker of Diarrhea, She Who Consumes Her Own Flesh, The Incestuous Whore, The Virgin Whore, The Destroyer, Eater of Compassion, Devourer of Youth, Bastion of Bulimia, The Infected One, Ingester of Cremains, She Who Orgasms In A Charnel House, She Who Rapes Her Food, Fucker of Beasts, Eater of Reproductive Organs, She Who Masturbates With Severed Fingers, Drinker of Blood, Slurper of Saliva, Feaster on Fetuses, The Fecund One, The Festering One, The Leech Goddess, Out-Stinker of Skunks, Licker of Tumors, Creatress of Cockroaches, The Venomous One, Kin To Conqueror Worms...

That's all the titles I have for Her at the moment. But Her putrescent glory is worthy of so many more.

I should note that Shao-Rahk's role is very complex. My absolute most favorite title of Hers is "The Free-est Soul," because it is SO true. By reveling in filth, vileness, and all the things that would turn most peoples' stomachs (mine included), and by not caring what She does, and by being so wild... She is free. This is because She symbolizes that freedom is a feeling more than an actual thing.

By definition, being un-incarnated is to be unlimited, and one would think that being unlimited would be the free-est kind of freedom. But the irony is that limitations - which are only possible in the realm of the relative (the mortal coil) - can often be what sets our souls free. The cage of flesh and bones does not have to make us feel trapped. Shao'Rahk teaches us that to be free, we need only change our minds. For it is not the body that traps us in our lives, it is our minds. We allow ourselves to be shackled by the restrictions of civilized life.

Don't get me wrong... most of the trappings of civilization tend to allow us reliable food, shelter, socialization, and reproduction... But there is such a thing as too much restriction. There's something to be said for getting in touch with your feral side once in a while. For instance, instead of going through all of your life as though it were a chore, take perverse pleasure in certain activities in the privacy of your home. For example: actually pay attention to the pressure of the buildup of feces in your colon, and then take a deeply gratifying pleasure in straining to get that turd out. After writing that fable in which Shao'Rahk was introduced, I noticed that yes - She's right! Taking a crap CAN be almost as pleasureable as sex at times. And if you have a crappy sex life, like I do, sometimes it can be *better*.

Another thing I like to do to get in touch with my feral side is to be perversely honest with myself, and treat myself to some gratuitous pleasure once in a while. Why, just this morning I discovered that the library was not open yet, and I had a half an hour left before it closed. So I asked myself what I wanted to do in that time. And I replied, "Go home, shit, and masturbate." Which I did.

I have found in my life that getting in touch with my own inner Shao'Rahk - even if only in the privacy of my mind - has made life a lot more bearable. When I get stressed out, I make perverted jokes to myself or have base thoughts or fantasies, and it helps allieviate my stress.

When you get right down to it, everyone - regardless of their beliefs - needs to get in touch with parts of themselves other than their mind. We are more than our mind, more than our body, and more than our soul. Ignoring one or more of these parts of one's self is unhealthy. Even if you don't believe in the soul, it is still undeniable to those who pay attention to such things that once in a while it feels good to just stop thinking, stop doing, and just BE for a while. Empty your head and relax your body and mind. You don't have to believe in the soul to nurture your spirit and be healthy in all ways.

Interesting. But I disagree with parts of that on principle, because while your beliefs seem to be insular/non-insular, mine are insular->anti-insular. What I mean is contained herein:

When you get right down to it, everyone - regardless of their beliefs - needs to get in touch with parts of themselves other than their mind. We are more than our mind, more than our body ...

Agreed.

... and more than our soul.

Disagree.

(Of course, that may simply be because I have a different definition of soul than most people. I find increasingly that I only use certain words because there are no other words that fit.)

All I meant by that comment ("We are more than our mind, more than our body, and more than our soul") is that we cannot live in any of those three exclusively, while mortals. The whole reason we've incarnated is to make use of all three. If you ignore any of the three, you risk becoming unhealthy; you also risk your soul deciding that this life is no longer useful to it, and causing you to die.
That is all I was saying.

Possibly you thought I meant that there was something beyond the soul? I don't know what you meant. But soul and God are pretty close to (if not completely) being the same thing, so I was not implying that.

I think that life is independent to the soul, and the body and mind are but mockeries. I wasn't making a fervent disagreement, simply stating one of principle. Sorry if I offended or was discourteous.

No offense was taken.

Oh dear... I didn't pay enough attention to tone in that last reply, did I? Fiddlesticks.

I think that life is independent to the soul, and the body and mind are but mockeries.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean. Could you explain, please?

Wait... getting a brain-flash. I don't get the "mockeries" part, but yes: life IS independent of the soul. The soul comes from God/dess, as does Life. The soul is part of the All, part of God, and part of Life... but it's like a drop in the ocean. Ultimately its existence or nonexistence does not really effect the whole on a large scale. Important and yet not, all at once.

What I mean is that the soul has it's own life ... life in this world is but a pale mockery. Just as the body, mind and world are but pale mockeries of truer aspects of the self. I don't really care about the nature of the soul beyond that, and what I already know. That's a thing I'll learn when I'm ready - for now I know the soul is the true aspect of the self, and that's what's important to me.

The Mortal Coil may not be as exalted as the Realm of the Absolute, but it has an exalted purpose. One could argue that life in the Realm of the Absolute is no life at all:

* There's little to no seperation between one entity and the next. Therefore, little or no individuality.
* Cannot experience growth.
* Cannot experience anything, really.
* Knowledge is only abstract.
* Wisdom cannot exist without experience, therefore the soul cannot be wise unless it has been to SOME level of the Realm of the Relative.
* Anything worth it is never easy, and everything in the Realm of the Absolute is easy... except for those things that only the Realm of the Relative can deliver, like wisdom, individuality, challenge, and experience.

G, I know more than many people how challenging this universe can be. Take comfort in the fact that Earth is one of the most challenging worlds in the universe; at least it can't get much worse. :-) And hey, you haven't gone insane. You're not a psychotic rampaging serial killer. You have a conscience, you have wisdom, you have understanding... you're doing better than a lot of people. You're mastering the game.

The way I figure, people like you and me don't have much farther to go on this cycle of incarnations. When we get out of it, we can spend some time doing whatever we feel like, either between worlds or retire for a while to a nice easy world.

The point is that yes, this life is challenging. For a reason. But the soul is dedicated. Other worlds are like a game of Hangman or like tag or hide-and-go-seek. This world is like that game mentioned on one episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, where you had to get your brain waves just right to make the bubble turn just one color... took that Trill almost 200 years and she still hadn't mastered it. That's what Earth is like.

It seems to me that you're feeling the same way about life as scwizard was feeling about school.

That's void, then. And I believe void is an unnatural construct, like this False Realm, but worse.

You have a conscience, you have wisdom, you have understanding... you're doing better than a lot of people. You're mastering the game.

I would rather tear the board in half, really. Godhood appeals to me, but not as much as what I've seen.

I'd rather not. Because, honestly, I'd like to return to my Absolute Form, the one I possess in Eden. All I really need to do is figure out what it looks like.

It seems to me that you're feeling the same way about life as scwizard was feeling about school.

Not really. Paul hates the system, and wants to fix it. I hate the system, and know that if I find the real system, this one will cease to exist.

No, the Realm of the Absolute was the First Thing. It was God/dess. It was/is Oneness. It is nothing but energy ("light"). "Void" emplies darkness/entropy. There is no darkness and no entropy in the Realm of the Absolute.

Everyone returns to their Absolute Form when they die. Death is not an end of life, it is just a shedding of this body. The body and mind are tools of the soul. When they are no longer useful, they are discarded.

Oh come on now, you want to fix it to. Even though you've supposedly sworn off trying to.

And actually, the system will continue to exist. It just won't be part of your experience anymore once you "find the real system".

A thing without form is as bad as Nothing, for me. Perhaps you departed from a different realm than I, or the same realm in a different age. My home has *form*.

Of course I want to fix it. But I can't yet, and I'll wait to ... three years, like I said.

Well, it'll cease to exist for *me.*

.... Huh?

The soul is light and energy, but form is an illusion, something people only have on the mortal plane.

Now, things on the Other Side can APPEAR to have a form, but ultimately they do not. Whatever form they have is defined by your consciousness and perspective.

Of course I want to fix it. But I can't yet, and I'll wait to ... three years, like I said.

Why did you initially make that claim? And why are you continuing with it?

I'm not talking about the Other Side. I'm talking about home, where form and substance are synonymous, because rocks are rocks and trees are trees and water is water.

Why did you initially make that claim? And why are you continuing with it?

Because, first, I need to save myself.

Well if you don't mean the Other Side, and you don't mean the Relative Realm, then you must be talking about your subjective world or an in-between realm, because otherwise I have no idea what you mean. There's the Relative Realm, The Other Side, and the in-bewtween Realms. So your Eden must be one of those in-betweens. (Which also includes To One Side realms.)

Because, first, I need to save myself.

Okay. Makes sense.

That's where I can never agree with you. Because the world I percieve is one where things are real and final and made entirely from substance. The True state of reality, one that exists independently of all other things.

Oh, Shao'Rahk.

Taking shits substitutes nicely for the anal sex I want but I have never had.

I'd take more pleasure in life if I wasn't plagued with shame for things that deserve no shame. I may not say with my voice that I think sex is disgusting but I feel it; I hate that I feel that, and it holds me back. Homo sex, hetero sex, girl-girl, guy-guy, urine, BDSM... you name it; if I want it then I find it shameful and punish myself over it.

Naughty boy! The only thing to be ashamed of is shame itself!

Oct. 24th, 2006 07:54 pm (UTC)
The irony is that I'm ashamed of that too!
fayanora
Oct. 26th, 2006 05:50 pm (UTC)
Irony on the rocks with a twist!

Okay, here's an idea... don't just whack off, put fingers up your behind. Or clean carrots. I used to put dead pens up there. Something I do now is in the shower I soap up my finger really good and clean myself out up there.

But if shitting is the only anal action you get, you won't be able to overpower that shame very easily.

And I know you're not a multiple like I am, but surely you can find somewhere within yourself that part of you that takes pure perverted glee in anal activities and get in touch with that part, BECOME that part when you're exploring your bunghole.

Mmhmm I've been thinking of buying a nice candle, wrapping it with seran rap and going at it.

I can't finger myself while I jack. I really need to get myself a vibrator.

I can't finger myself while I jack.

I couldn't at first either. Now I can. It's a little tricky, but it basically involves sitting on my hand.

That was actually a combo of me and Shao'Rahk. Bringing Her whole personality into myself, I'd become just like Her completely - crawling around on my haunches, not speaking, and eating my own shit.
