  • Angels - Everything2.com
    exile their view of angels were influenced by the Zoroastrians The number of recognised angels increased as they became messengers of Jehovah The Jewish scriptures tell of the angelic war between good and the fallen ones which will be concluded at the world s end This bears a striking resemblance to the apocalyptic Zoroasterian fight between the Lord of Darkness and Light Both Jewish and Christian theologians considered angels a very popular subject to discuss Some famous Christian theologians were Gregory the Great Phil and St Thomas of Aquinas St Thomas of Aquinas was known as the angel doctor In 1259 A D he gave lectures and talks on angels at the Univeristy of Paris The information from these lectures have formed some of the basis for the knowledge of angles for hundreds of years later His angelology consisted of the existence of angels their nature as purely spiritual beings incorporeal substances having minds but no bodies St Aquinas debates and discussions were so popular that they drew forth crowds of people It was a rousing form of acceptable entertainment at the time While Judaism has no fixed ordering of classes of angels Christianity has a specific hierarchy Codified in its classic form in the 5th cent by St Dionysius the Areopagite it is known as The Nine Choirs of Angels There are three ranks or triads very similar to Zoraster s three rankings In descending order the ranks of angels are seraphim cherubim thrones dominations virtues powers principalities archangels and angels Archangel s are the most personified and recognisable of the choirs The lowest choir of angel is where guardian angels are drawn from In Islam the four archangels are Jibrail Mikail Israfil and Izrail the Angel of Death who often act in place of Allah The Kiram al Katibin are the recording angels According to a popular tradition each person has two scribe angels the one on the right side recording good deeds the one on the left taking note of transgressions A lower order of angels is the jinn Today Angels are vestiges of the truly ancient religions that worshipped all aspects of reality as some form of spirit The fact that they appear in some form in nearly all religions points to a common origin some proto religion Even the cult of fertility based around the Mother Goddess is still represented in the heirarchy of angels in the patriarchal religions The archangel Gabriel is often considered to be female credited with the creation of Adam and Eve The Sumerian translation of her name also doubles as the word for rib Hence through translational errors we have the story in Genesis of Eve being created from Adam s rib Angel worship is still popular today but is not limited to the major religions Mysticism tarot and Wicca all have a place for these helpful and powerful spirits of the past www infoplease com ce6 society A0804015 html members aol com Webangelgt tcontent html www feedback nildram co uk richardebbs essays angels htm I like it 1 C essay by iceowl Fri Mar 28 2014 at 15 31 02 This is all real On February 26 2014 I went in for a small 10 minute outpatient surgical procedure Twelve hours later I was in a hospital ER in extraordinary pain I was initially discharged after six hours with the prognosis that I had a large hematoma on my bladder and no explanation of how it came to be there After five days of continuous chills and growing weakness it was revealed to me that I had lost six units of blood due to internal bleeding and it was possible I was still bleeding On the sixth day I wound up back in the ER in horrible pain dehydrated and anemic At that point I learned that my liver pancreas and stomach were completely cut off by coagulating blood in my gut I was admitted to the hospital in a daze and kept on a continuous IV drip I was given no nutrients only hydration and thus was effectively starved for not only my 7 days in the hospital but several days prior In the hospital I drifted in and out of consciousness due mostly to the constant dosing with opiates to reduce my discomfort During this time I was listed as NPO meaning I was allowed nothing by mouth No food No water And I was subjected to a barrage of painful procedures all done with the objective to try to prove that my condition was not caused by a gut full of blood but rather due to some form of tumor or ulcer Being tremendously thirsty utterly unable to slake my thirst by drinking starved and under the heavy influence of dilaudid and with the ever present possibility that my condition was caused by a terminal cancerous condition my mind wandered to ever more negative scenarios At one point I began to realize how I might perish and what death would feel like At that point I began to have panic attacks and I flailed at the tubes in my body in an attempt to escape the confinement the hospital had become It was only after my wife came to spend the night in the room with me that I could get through an entire evening avoiding the entreaties of the beings that I so clearly saw who continuously beckoned me toward what I knew would be my death I now know that all of this medical purgatory was inflicted upon me to provide some cover to the surgeon who had caused the bleeding Thus my 10 minute outpatient procedure became a fight for my life I won If you re the recipient of a miracle who do you thank Do you reach out to your ever present ever existing God who has a hand in the vibration of every molecule every pebble of sand on every planet circling all the stars Is anything that happens in your life large enough to equal earthquakes and tidal waves or the flow of water on Mars Maybe God is as happy about your miracle as you are Perhaps he hasn t lifted a finger since the evening of the sixth day when it was all set in motion Everything from a breeze lifting dried leaves on a playground to the blue giants at the galactic core spinning Is it that Really Isn t it closer It is One hand not so far from your own Isn t it someone you could rise on tip toe to kiss Someone who has pledged to love you and see you through The one who sees the storms and pleads for you to hold on The harsh is coming Hold on The only lamp left when the deluge drowned it all in blue black dark When you saw them go out one by one and there was no hope Time is far too big The warmth of your own life too shallow to hold when the wave breaks It is not a miracle if he who made the oceans divides them It is not a miracle if he who throws stars blows them out in brilliant detonation It is someone smaller than the sky or the sea who deflects the demons It s a someone who parts the sea not a god It s a being who breaths back life where the beam was sputtering Can t you take her hands and pour yourself into her eyes and pray thanks to her with the waning torch in your soul Dear One how do I thank you I am here ankle deep in the sea that almost took me soaked breathing still but for you I feel you I see you everywhere I m not afraid to tell them that you are real and you are mine and some day you have to let me die But not today my guardian Not today Nurses come and go in twelve hour shifts Every half day I have to educate another one who takes my pressure and temp and injects fluids into the tube I am allowed some milligrams of dilaudid every hour It makes me less upset about the pain which never leaves but I am trying to see what it might be like without it Like a gopher poking his head up out of his burrow only to find the entrance to his underground domain is in the middle of traffic on the interstate Maybe he won t get hit when he looks this time Never works I wince You re overdue for pain meds says Mandi with an i like she s in high school Without my glasses she s pink and white and black and I don t care to see her anymore Just a while longer I can t live underground You can t what It s too much work to try to explain that what the drugs do is take me farther from the world of the healthy and push me to inner limits crush me to a point in space from which it would be far too easy to fall off the edge of the world It s why we have these drugs Joe So you don t have to go through it It s why you re in the hospital I ve waited too long My head above ground is too clear and obvious and the next onslaught is coming like a truck I wince when it hits Exhale My breath makes a noise which I realize is my own groaning Ok I say I gasp Go ahead She scans my hospital wrist band with a plastic gun that shoots blue and red lasers Scans a preloaded syringe Busts off the needle and screws the syringe into the outlet on my IV line Slowly presses the plunger I try not to watch We don t like pain here and you need your rest to get well I don t remember her unscrewing the syringe or leaving the room pink and purple nurse Mandi with an i There are volumes I could recite to her as the walls come up around me lifetime of achievement and heartbreak hundreds of story ideas flowing through my mind Bathing in the subtle energies of everyone who suffered in that room and I could tell her about the ghosts The demons everywhere But it s not worth summoning the energy I know won t come Head against the pillow Burrowing underground The door is open and patients luge past on wheeled pallets a holiday parade with a medical theme Their tenders negotiate the hallway traffic becoming horizontal gravity murmuring or speaking in comforting tones to the inert flesh they motivate through the halls Aloft are bags of transparent fluids that fly like flags on tall rods connected to the mummified bodies by a venous system of clear plastic tubing and mechanized delivery devices that beep and blink There is someone there in that flesh I tell myself Each gurney that goes by There is someone there All going for procedures To the O R To x ray To the E R where they have the endoscopes The path to the rest of a life goes through those rooms In the afternoon the visitors come shuffling Shoulders low Scanning the room numbers When they re coming in I see their faces Their conversations are the banal All trying to convince themselves they are not where they are It s ok Of course It s ok He s getting better You ll see Half hour later I see their backs as they leave The ones who are not worried shift their conversations outward Did you check if we have enough milk We should stop at the store on the way back And then there are the ones who are not speaking They hold hands Wrap their arms around each other and refuse to complete their thoughts It doesn t seem there s much Mom told us we should be ready But I didn t think In the night the nurses come to fill vials with blood They wake you from chaotic dreams and pull you back into their living world to fill your lungs with air and remind you all is not well That pain in your gut will now take over You are shackled to the wall by the tube in your throat that demands you ask permission to swallow This is what is The vampire nurse leaves with her vials Stewart asks me if I want more pain meds I know I can sleep without them but I don t want to think of this anymore Yes I say and he scans my wristband and the syringe Breaks off the needle and screws the plastic cylinder into my IV Slowly pushes the plunger You can have this once per hour he says Don t be shy You don t have to lay there and hurt I tell him I m not shy I just wanted to be alive for a while When the time stops I see the same thing whether my eyes are open or closed Tall lights just taller than people Oblong like a folded swiss army pocket knife Glowing gold white I can just about make out some detail in the glare They stand beside each of us waiting Some times there are six or more around me But never less than one I am never alone I want to ask them why they re not helping Why just stand there And I get the answer not as some mysterious telepathic channel but a remembrance of something I always knew but never wanted to admit Because they re wondering what I ll do next The choices always belong to us The hospital has an outdoor courtyard There are two sets of rusting patio furniture that bathe in the sunshine daily My stomach tube comes out my nose The way they have it taped on me makes me look like a distorted Star Warz bar scene character The enigmatic elephant man with thin swinging trunk Another tube comes from where they plunged toward my duodenum from my back in a procedure full of 3D x rays and pain like the end of the universe The tube is full of blood but nothing drains from it that they hoped to drain Now it s just something else that makes me need the meds I unclip the nose tube from the vacuum pump on the wall Wish I could do the same with the IV but if that stops I ll die of thirst So it has to come with me The IV goes into a machine that s latched onto the middle of a seven foot microphone stand like device with wheels At the top of the stand are four metal rods bent into curly ram s horn shapes There are plastic bags filled with clear fluids hanging from the curled rods I know most of these are saline but some have electrolytes and one had been filled with an antibiotic solution and now just hangs there filling space making it look like I m being infused with ever more important fluids I push the microphone stand IV tree in front of me Nobody stops me when I open a door that says ALARMED EMERGENCY ONLY through which I ve seen hospital staff walking for days In the courtyard I park my IV tree and sit in one of the rusted patio chairs It s California springtime Outside the sweet air moves The sun is warm and if I close my eyes the hospital HVAC units sound like surf I imagine seagulls and kids chasing each other through the sand and into the foam from the breakers in the distance Wake up sleeping beauty It s Mandi with an i pulling a double shift I feel her shadow across my face When I open my eyes I have to look nearly into the sun to see her so I squint for a while then just close my eyes again It s time Do you want your pain meds I shake my head I m pretty good on my beach Remember what we talked about You want to stay ahead of the pain with the meds If you go too long the meds may not help you as much I think I m good I say I ll just rest here Ok well if you need anything just come to the desk An image pops into my mind Bright and clear Well there is one thing Do you think I could get a Coke with some ice out here Mandi s energy shifts slightly I can feel it with my eyes closed In fact in my weakened state short six pints of blood and with less oxygen going to my brain I m feeling a lot of things Watching the subtle energy leave marks God is leaving signs everywhere like a trail of breadcrumbs But I don t want to follow Mandi wants to pump in some opiates but doesn t want to hand me a frosty paper cup filled with ice chips and soda Now I know for sure This is the rabbit hole a drug addict s paradise I m not sure you can have the caffeine says Mandi I ll check I say Can t have a soft drink with caffeine but I can have another milligram of morphine times six Time goes by I don t know if she heard me It might be an hour Best not to perturb these people They control everything This is how a patient winds up dead in the middle of the night Lots of air bubbles in the IV line Wrong juice pumped into the veins They don t like the outside because there s too much chaos Too much uncontrollability Leaves
