What is the power of 666? Is it truly the mark of "evil?"
What can we do to nullify it?

666--A Reminder Evil Stalks The
Shadow Of Vigilance
Editor, New York City Combat Correspondent News
GROUND ZER0, New York, N.Y.--July 10,
2003-- Evil still stalks the Shadow of Vigilance, and, perhaps
it is the shadow itself.
All things are composed of good and bad, right and wrong, plus and
minus, for all things are imperfect in their nature, carrying the
flaws of existence.
All things are
composed of good and evil
Matter, all matter, is held
together by the stress and strain of gravity, opposing forces pushing
and pulling, creating tension that keeps things from flying apart,
disintegrating into nothingness.
Good and Evil are as much a part of the tension of existence
as night and day, cold and hot, love and hate.
That's why today, the six-hundred and sixty-sixth day from
Ground Zero, September 11, 2001, is an important time to remind
ourselves the Beast of Terror stalks us in the Shadow of Vigilance.
This is the symbol of "evil," the "mark
of the Devil."
The 666 symbol comes from the Bible, representing the
sign of the antichrist. Rev 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him
that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the
number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
In the last book of the New Testament of the
Bible, Christians are warned that the Beast lurks. It's not
unlike a scary movie where you see the "evil one" killed and sit back
in your seat relaxed that the trauma is all over, only to have the
last scene show the "creature" leaping up out of the water or grave,
still alive, waiting for the next episode.
666 comes from
the Book of Revelations
The biblical beast
described in Revelations has two forms, one designed to make war upon
the saints and rule the earth, and the other to reinforce the power of
the first beast, reminding all that the beast had children, dedicated
to make them live in Fear, Intimidation and Complacency.
Even if one is not a Christian, or opposes
that which exists in the Bible as having any veracity, there can be no
question that "evil" exists in the world in a wide variety of forms.
Equally, no one can question that "good"
exists, just as any sane person cannot deny that life has its "ups"
and "downs," that is a composition of tragedy and triumph.
The stoic may simply sit back and say:
"That's the way it is," giving no tribute to any spiritual force
behind nature's oscillation between the peaks and valleys of human
Hussein reminds us there are those who rise from the bowels of the
earth to rape, pillage and plunder
But even the
most Complacent must admit that forces exist to threaten the safety
and security of the great mass of humanity seeking peace and
prosperity. We have our Hitlers to remind us there are
those who would rise from the bowels of the earth to rape, pillage and
plunder all in its way...... And our Saddam Hussein's.
We also have ourselves to remind us
of the Beast.
Any wise human being has felt the
roiling of the Beast of Terror within at one time or another.
Self-control is about managing the Beast Within.
All human history is woven with
threads of the Beast's presence--the average person fighting the
temptations of "evil" or succumbing to them create the great conflicts
of human thought and history.
Today, the glut of superhero movies ranging
from Spiderman to the recent Hulk movie, reinforce our need to have
champions fight off the forces of 666, those Beasts of Terror that
stalk us all either in fact or fiction.
The 666 of Ground
Zero, is not a day to celebrate the presence of "evil," or to suggest
that the "Beast of Terror" rules the earth.
reminds us Nine Eleven can happen again and again
Today is just another day to remind
ourselves that what happened on September 11, 2001, can happen again
and again and again.
Terrorism cannot be eliminated, it
can only be managed, corralled, guarded so it doesn't escape and run
Complacency allows it to escape.
When we turn our heads, Terrorism appears.
Revelations in the Bible is a warning to all that just when one
thought the water was safe, out pops the next Beast.
|The Book of
Revelations is filled with Beast alerts
Revelations, it wasn't just one Beast that rose up, but two.
They were wounded Beasts, reminding those who thought they had been
killed that wounds do not necessarily mean death.
As a Sentinel of Vigilance, I
am aware that the Beast lives both inside me, and within others.
Some of our Beasts are more boisterous than others. Our
job as human beings is to manage our Fear, Intimidation and
Complacency with Courage, Conviction and Right Actions for the
Children's Children's Children.
This means we must constantly be
Vigilant, always aware the Beast of Terror stalks us, waiting for us
to become Complacent, to weaken our resolve to evolve beyond the base
nature of the Beast.
The Beast of
Terror waits for the Beacon of Vigilance to stop shining as
scratch their heads and can't figure out why their child acts a
certain way, or why there is turmoil in his or her life, need to be
reminded that Vigilance is the reason. When
one slackens the Rope of Vigilance, the Beast of Terror takes control.
Like the message in Revelations, the
Beast of Terror hides in the dark corners of all our souls, waiting
for the Beacon of Vigilance to stop shining, and in the dim, dank
darkness of Complacency, it skulks out and grabs us, feeding us the
sour fruits of pride, envy, anger, gluttony, sloth, lust and greed.
We start to see ourselves as losers, failures, unworthy beings.
underestimate the Beast
The Beast also
raises his head and roars through the mouths of the righteous, those
who protest the acts of Vigilance. America's attack on
Iraq has been under assault by those who would like to see the Beast
Slayer crippled. Despite the fact one of the world's
great despots has been removed, and a signal of Vigilance sent to the
other Beasts, there are those who would like to disarm the Sentinel of
Vigilance, to make America and Britain helpless in any future efforts
to keep the world from being ruled by the Beast.
Ironically, these righteous Beasts have
tried to emboss the symbol 666 on the forehead of President Bush, and
make him the Beast. They would rather have the focus on
turning good into evil than to seek out the destruction of more evil.
The Beast is slick.
I do not underestimate him.
Neither did those who wrote the Bible, or,
for that matter, the Greeks who wrote the tragedies reminding us all
what happens when we turn our backs on "evil," when our pride rises
above our humility.
You can keep the Beast away.
You can keep yourself from having the 666 symbol of Complacency
stamped on your being.
The Shield of Vigilance will protect you.
All you have to do is take the Pledge of
When you do, you'll erase 666.
