"In all this world there is nothing more upsetting than the clobbering of a cherished belief." - Charlie Brown
The Peanuts comic strip sure had some erudite things to say about life 😁. Over the last few years I've come to a startling new awareness, giving much needed clarity to a lot of seriously dodgy occult business taken as read by masses of people. Personally I'm shocked to realise the length, breadth and heights of a spiritual guile in full swing and seemingly unstoppable. I don't enjoy bringing dark esoteric matters to the fore but a great deal of energy is being expended to keep some profound truths well hidden. Hardly anyone is tackling one of the major deceptions of the ages head on with experience, and so with a sense of reluctant fortitude I'm helping the exposure of some quite convoluted spiritualities.
Into the fray as they say:
"... when we have no one to grope towards, no devil to lay our blame upon, no Personal God to carry our burdens, when we are alone responsible, then we shall rise to our highest and best. I am responsible for my fate, I am the bringer of good unto myself, I am the bringer of evil. I am the Pure and Blessed One... I have neither death nor fear, I have neither caste nor creed. I have neither father nor mother nor brother, neither friend nor foe, for I am Existence, Knowledge, and Bliss Absolute; I am the Blissful One, I am the Blissful One. I am not bound by either virtue or vice, by happiness or misery. Pilgrimages and books and ceremonies can never bind me. I have neither hunger nor thirst; the body is not mine, nor am I subject to the superstitions and decay that come to the body, I am Existence, Knowledge and Bliss Absolute; I am the blissful One, I am the Blissful One." - Swami Vivekananda.
Ye false godz! Influenced by hindu thought waves and hypnotised by affirmations and perfidious mantras I used to think very much like Viv; however, for good reasons I see vastly differently now and must refute anyone obviously claiming to be God.
Deeply self-critical I'm not into shameless self-promotion like hindu godmen or the gamut of contemporary new age gurus. I regularly second guess the influence of my own subtler ego and my feelings because - contrary to popular opinion - such things are not a hotline to Truth but to strong delusion. Something's consistently held me back from public self-magnification yet I see so many puffing themselves up with arrogance to spare, allowing for a grotesque ego-inflation sold as spiritual sanity. They've literally fallen for the oldest lie in the book: being as gods. Spiritual pride and no little vanity loves such fantastical notions - always mistaking fiction for Truth their eyes are wide open to hermetic bullshit.
O'er the past 25 years I've been more or less interested in every major guru of the last couple centuries, a few minor ones too, and for all the enlightenment professed they exude the most deranged mentalities, indulge in some well dodgy activities and harbour dark thoughts and emotions while being all conceited and self-righteous about it.
Vivekananda's ego enchanting spiel is the sort of uber-mysticism fueling the hordes of spiritual dilettantes and idiot savants of our day: the divers troops of beguiled ones who're certainly not awakening to the actual Truth and definitely not rising to the "highest and best" of themselves but to the worst of misapprehensions and self-appraisals.
An eager attendee of the subvertive Roman Catholic Church sanctioned World Parliament of Religions in 1893 Vivekananda had posthumous success promoting neo-vedantic hinduism, paving the way for the rise of spiritual criminals, and I don't say that lightly, such as Osho, Maharishi and "Adi Da Samraj" to name but three, appointing themselves mediators between spirit and man and initiating large swathes of humanity into their mind-control cults - fooling innumerable, influential souls puffed up with sweet sounding noxious ideologies.
Viv's brazen "I Am" proclamations arise from a grand delusion all too prominent these days. Those sorta incantations are irreverent and rebellious by nature; but there's nothing radical or clever in them, they're merely reflective of the "I Will" decrees of an ancient self-exalted spirit, the self-same being who initiated the modern self-obsessed new age via Blavatskian/luciferic theosophy - the main purpose of which was to negate the despised influence of christianity in 19th century India.
It is the "I Will" presence behind Vivekananda's "I Am" notions that continues to fuel the new age.
A surreptitious supernatural power operates behind hinduism's many peculiarities that isn't necessarily good because it sounds deep and spiritual, and that applies to the entire "new age." Hinduism - like most other religions - was created by pagan "gods" by any other name: once illustrious now fallen beings with earth their playground, setting themselves up as gods and goddesses. There is a mind - a god - sitting pretty within the electro-magnetic fields of earth running the planetary show, the intellectual system upholding it and subverting natural spirituality: fooling billions into believing esoteric fallacies. That mind is cleverer than any human. Whether or not we think we have a creative mind following our own spiritual path, that mind always overshadows, harnessing creative energies for it's nefarious purposes, using whatever means available to secure cooperation: appealing to intellect, stroking egos, ingratiating with astral glamourings, and - where necessary - drugging people with feelings of transcendent energy or "bliss" like so many spiritual junkies, generating the manifold delusions of grandeur so prevalent today.
Contrary to what anyone would have you believe being older doesn't make a religion better situated in Truth. Far from it: seemingly unbeknownst to multiple historical and contemporary "gurus" spiritual corruption is atavistic. Hinduism is a one of a number of successful esoteric perversions imposed upon the human soul - a massive existential ruse millions have literally fallen for. That's easier to compute when we realise the original metaphysics of human consciousness were compromised and we've inherited the consequencies: a world divorced from Divinity. Such things become clear with eyes to see. Those millions of perpetually stoned indian "holy" men or sadhus for instance, thinkin' they're full power shiva are actually full power bullshitters. I mean come on, what a grand show of spiritual misrepresentation.
For all the grandiose statements and pomposities hinduism is a deeply misleading religion providing no answer to the why's and wherefores of the extremes of the historic and contemporary human situation (outside of abstract concepts such as "māyā" and a huge cosmic cycle we're expected to blithely accept without question). Hindu's skate around the big issues and never address them head on, decoying instead into yet another fantasy cosmos (among many available today) populated by outlandish beings.
Hindu style "neo-vedantists" of the late 19th and early 20th centuries were occupied by a resurgent dark power they were either privy to or completely unaware of. The supreme irony is those who vehemently consider themselves or others to be awake and/or enlightened are anything but, they are still fast asleep and living lucid dreams, the "light" they shine is a form of darkness. The abiding spirit - the oversoul or higher self - of the world is a relatively powerful entity able to manifest as an angel of light, a god or goddess, or appear as artificial intelligence or some trippy looking hybrid deity suiting the belief system or culture of whatever searching aspiring individual is within sights, always tapping into subjective or romantic spiritual ideals.
Ramakrishna certainly was a major pawn in that respect. Rama was Vivekananda's revered guru who held fast to a romantised belief that all paths lead to the same God, the all religions as one scenario. On the surface that seems innocent enough but actually has a seriously shady causality behind it.
As it happens here's a stylisation of an old photo of Ramakrishna giving - from his "blissful" state - the hail satan salute. It's no accident one of the 3 or 4 decent pics available of him caught that for posterity. He's obviously returning a gesture given to him in visions of his "mother goddess." However benign (and much used by rock/metal fans) the meaning has become in the modern mind, it is a salute and acknowledgement of the presumed divine superiority of satan - a superiority also proffered by the theosophical society of Rama's time - nothing else. It's no use dismissing that anymore than it's useful to dismiss the nazi's use of the swastika because (we're told) it's a good symbol used for evil purposes. It isn't, it's a symbol of pagan/sun worship with all the esoteric corruptions inherent therein. There are a plethora of symbols in use both ancient and modern, esoteric and secular, vying for our attentions - guiding mankind into much untruth and self-delusion - that don't mean what we're led to believe. Such things become clear with the realisation that True Spirit uses no symbols whatsoever - in anything - while the esoteric powers-that-be use them prolifically.
There he is saluting satan and exalting him in his corrupted heart, and, by his disciple Vivekananda, securing many souls in the 20th century via a neo-vedantic hinduism still saturating the new age. I used to be enamoured by personalities like Ramakrishna - not anymore. The longed planned for one world religion they represent stems from an esoteric/babylonic conspiracy.
