"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 😁.
My whole life has been about the realisation of spirituality, and for a long time I thought I had it all sussed and sorted. I've been as happy and joyous as anyone and could spout reams of love 'n' light poetry and gnostic balladry with the best of 'em. It'd be very polite of me and droll with lots of people vigorously nodding agreement, perhaps some of 'em would send money. However and most incongruently, I've had to renounce all that and must throw an almighty curveball into the collective consciousness.
Over the last couple of years life has changed dramatically like I wouldn't have believed beforehand. In the preceding year I'd come to a startling new awareness and been given much needed clarity about a lot of new age and other seriously dodgy occult vocations taken as read by too many - seemingly - authoritative people. It's a long story but this personal "paradigm shift" was quite the fiery business involving fire, destruction and death.
As an ex-hindu roots new ager I'm shocked at the length, breadth, height and depth of a spiritual guile in full swing, now I'm able to see it. Mankind is supposed to be livin' a time of light, a time of awakening, an age of information and revealing; but au contraire: for all the vain presumptions of awakening and enlightenment mankind currently resides under the deepest, darkest time - of all time.
An ancient mechanism of deception operates at peak efficiency.
I don't enjoy bringing the darkness of spirituality to the fore, I'd rather not be involved as it 'appens, it's all so frickin' freaky out there; but it has to be done and I am involved whether I like it or not. This section, a prologue to the rest of my "blog", get's somewhat to the heart of the sorry matter of mankind and I make no apologies for throwing any staunch secularists or wandering spiritual neophytes in at the deep end. Also, I offer no concessions to those under the influence of a David Icke or Teal Swan with their penchant for a particular kind of irresponsible and quite pretentious faux enlightenment. There are profound matters that need to be addressed and insight proffered that undermine everything the aforementioned represent.
Deeply self-critical I'm not into shameless self-promotion like the gamut of 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 quite grotesque ego-inflation sold as some sorta spiritual sanity. They've literally fallen for the oldest lie in the book: being as gods. Spiritual pride and no little vanity loves fantastical notions, always mistaking fiction for Truth their eyes are wide open to hermetic bullshit.
Hardly anyone is tackling one of the major deceptions of the ages head on with experience. Therefore - with a sense of reluctant fortitude - I'm helping along the exposure of some quite convoluted spiritualities.
Now's the time (to shake things up a bit).
"... 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 a variety of vain affirmations and the odd perfidious mantra I used to think a lot like Viv. However, for very good reasons I see entirely differently. Now I must refute anyone obviously identifying with God, simply because they're wrong. Very wrong, and they're leading a lot of people up the garden path....
O'er the past 25 years I've been interested in every major guru of the passed couple o' centuries - a few minor ones too - and for all the enlightenment professed they exude the most deranged mentalities and indulge in some well dodgy activities, harbouring dark thoughts and emotions aplenty.
Too many run before they can walk.
Vivekananda's ego enchanting spiel is the sort of mega-delusion that continues to infect the hordes of spiritual dilettantes, idiot savants and all round nutcases of our day - those diverse and most vocal troops of purely beguiled ones who only assume they know what spirituality is about, but know nothing outside of the power of suggestion and fanciful daydream. They're certainly not awakening to the truth and definitely not rising to the "highest and best" of themselves but to the worst of self-appraisals and misapprehensions. There's been an extensive and fervent desecration of the sacred, it's degredation from goodness to debased, childish philandering and pretentiousness seems complete. True Spirituality - that noble, sublime attainment - now suffices in tantalizing and ostentatious display.
An active participant of the corrupt Roman Catholic Church sanctioned World Parliament of Religions in 1893 Vivekananda gained posthumous success promoting neo-vedantic hinduism, paving the way for 20th century spiritual criminals such as Osho, Maharishi and "Adi Da Samraj" (to name but three) to rise up and create exclusive, temporal earthly kingdoms on their terms and appoint themselves mediators between spirit and mankind, initiating large swathes of humanity into their mind-control cults and deceiving innumerable souls with sweet sounding though noxious ideologies.
Viv's brazen "I Am" proclamations arise from a delusion all too prominent these days, a particular grand delusion originating in the spiritual. They are irreverent and rebellious by nature yet there's nothing truthful in them, they're reflective of the fatuous "I Will" decrees of an ancient self-exalted being, the self-same being who initiated the self-obsessed new age via Blavatskian/luciferic theosophy and proffered a fresh spin on vedanta: neo vedantism - 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" proclamations that originated and continues to fuel the new age.
For all the earnestness Vivekananda was steeped in a grandiose esoteric deception. 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." I've come to see Hindu style God realisation isn't realising real God at all. Hinduism like most other religions was created by pagan "gods" by any other name - once Divine now fallen beings with earth their playground, setting themselves up as gods and goddesses. There is a mind - a god - sitting pretty within earths electro-magnetic fields, running the planetary show and the intellectual system behind it, subverting the spirituality of man and fooling billions into believing fallacies. That is the presence all hindu godmen are one with and emulating - for they are that. 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 natural creative energies for it's nefarious purposes. With legions of willing or unwitting servants both incarnate and discarnate, the cooperation of mankind is secured by whatever means necessary: appealing to intellect, stroking egos, ingratiating with astral glamourings, and - where necessary - drugging people with feelings of energy or "bliss," hooking them like so many spiritual junkies, causing 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 just as corrupt as the new age systems and teachings of our day, one of a number of successful esoteric perversions imposed upon the human soul for millenniums: a massive spiritual ruse millions have literally fallen for. That's easier to compute when we learn that 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 full power bullshitters. I mean come on, what a grand show of spiritual misrepresentation. They're representative of a spiritual perversion I'll be talking a lot about in this blog. There is a seriousness about life that we are being prevented from realising, the guru who tells you we are not our body/mind are thoughtless indeed, and most injudicious.
For all the spiritual allurement, hinduism is a deeply misleading religion. Rather than providing spiritual honesty it deals in esoteric subversion, it is a "faith" secured in arcane duplicity obscuring Truth from all sides of the human mind. Hinduism provides no answer or solution to the why's and wherefores of the extremes of the historic and contemporary human suffering 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 masses are easily duped, it doesn't take much to delude mankind. The current oversoul or "higher self" of the world is able to manifest as an angel of light, or a god or goddess, or appear as artificial intelligence or some trippy looking hybrid deity suiting the belief system (or culture) of whatever 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 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 (ubiquitous with rock/metal fans) the meaning has become in the modern mind, it is an acknowledgement of and salute to the (presumed) divine superiority of satan, a superiority proffered by the theosophical society of Rama's time. 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 denoting goodness and well being used for evil purposes. It isn't, among other things it's a symbol of sun worship - the worship of nature, of creation - with all the esoteric corruptions inherent therein. It's no accident the darkly overshadowed Nazi party adopted the symbol under the pretence of national pride and unity. The prevalence of the swastika/sun symbol in ancient Hinduism denotes the dark forces behind that religion's inception. 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 via his disciple Vivekananda, securing many souls in the 20th century by 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 stratagem.
The powers of darkness have made an awful conspiracy.
