Part Four: Extreme Religious Right a Form of Control, and its Historic Beginnings. (Updated From 7th October 2015)
I was once asked a question, “Do you believe in Christ?” and I replied “yes,” but I don’t believe in the Catholic Church, his faced appeared perplexed. He looked confused to my approach, and it’s probable that a question would instill him, of how can anyone believe in Christ and not the Church. If one examines the propensity for truth in themselves a thought might formulate in the mind that questions the current notion of the Church Institution, that it’s more corporate than anything else that we might associate it with.
Would Christ himself be an advocate of a corrupt institution? Any religious historian knows the story from the King James Bible, “and Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money-changers, and the seats of them that sold doves.” If he could see current times; Catholic Church amassing billions of dollars, hording and not giving – the corrupt Priests and pedophilias are so rampart it’s become inherent, while the Church goes out of its way to protect this behavior. The Vatican holds a library of hidden history and knowledge, that’s only for the initiated secret group. This knowledge is so profound that it could fix most of the problems that concerns the world today. This is not a sort of manifesto to conspire against all Church institution, that they’re all in on it because the core of Christ must be up held, however it’s surely (or already) infiltrated.
In order to understand why this happening, you must first go beyond your programmed understanding, and instead dive into esotericism and occult knowledge, and also an understanding of the Mystery Schools. In the early settlements of America, Europeans called this country the New World, but secretly they called it the New Atlantis. This country was a formation of a plan backed by the Royals (Windsor), and this Country on the surface was going to be a democratic liberal Country with biblical principles, its true intentions however, is an advantageous social engineering plan – formed by a principle of the ideal man in the perfect utopia. These brave devout pilgrims were actually known as Puritans (or “Separatists,” as they called themselves) were little more than indentured servants to European corporate interests. That took place in corporate colony – not a religious commune. With any so called religious venture lurks behind a rich and powerful […] pulling the strings from the get go. These ideas stem back to the Mystery Schools.
What were the Mystery Schools? (Just small disclaimers not take the information on the beginnings of Thoth or Hermes as fact, but as historical myth) Mystery School teachings are an esoteric spiritual wisdom and philosophy passed down by the initiates through generations. The Mystery School teachings were formed in the age of Atlantis, where they learned all things consciousness – an Atlantis Priest named Thoth went to Egypt and through him and two Nacals help introduced the first Pharaoh; Akhenaten and this Pharaoh was 15-foot-tall and had elongated skull. He abolished all previous believes of God and instilled a one God belief, and used the symbol sun-disk to worship. Akhenaten then developed a new Mystery School, after a while the people revoked and had him killed. During the end of the Egypt Empire Thoth outlined in the emerald tablets that he met a man from Greece named Pythagoras which he taught the sacred geometry to. Thoth lived in Greece as Hermes Trismegistus. To understand Atlantis times, you have to also understand dimensions, frequencies, vibrational grids, vortex’s, alchemy, fallen Angels and sacred geometry (etc.) which all stems from the Mystery School religion, and the average lifespan of an Atlantis being was apparently 900 years.
Throughout the centuries the knowledge of occultism was branched out through secret societies, their intentions were innocent at the time, just had more knowledge than the average person – knowledge stemming back to the Mystery Schools. It is believed that is was the Church that infiltrated these societies to guard knowledge leaking out – through this infiltration these societies were demonized, and are now run by the Church backed by established elites. They have kept the name, but their true intentions are gone, replaced by a new Order (or Empire) to further push their agenda NWO (Globalism) one that is in place today.
Grace Knoche of the Theosophical Society outline in her document titled the ‘Mystery Schools,’ describing the origin and I quote: “Millions upon millions of years ago in the darkness of prehistory, humanity was an infant, a child of Mother Nature, un-awakened, dreamlike, and wrapped in the cloak of mental somnolence. Recognition of egoity slept; instinctual consciousness alone was active. Like a stream of brilliance across the horizon of time, divine beings Manasaputras sons of mind, descended among the sleeping humans, and with the flame of intellectual solar fire lighted the wick of latent mind, and lo! The thinker stirred. Self-consciousness wakened, and man became a dynamo of intellectual and emotional power: capable of love, of hate, of glory, of defeat. Having knowledge, he acquired power; acquiring power, he chose; choosing, he fashioned the fabric of his future; and the perception of this ran like wine through his veins.” (Grace Knoche, n.d)
Grace later explains the Atlantis connection, she says; “time marched on and the race waxed lusty in power, as Lemuria gave birth to Atlantis, the third root-race to the fourth, the fiercest battle was waged: the war between the lords of light and truth and the lords of darkness and ignorance…Thus were established, some threatening to destroy itself through spiritual iniquity, the first Mystery Schools. From these early centres sprang other Mystery Schools in all parts of the Atlantean world. By the time the Atlanteans were in their heyday of material splendor, these schools were working their hardest to stem the increasing tide of sorcery.” (Grace Knoche, n.d)
The basis of the Mystery School is predicated on the doctrine that creative knowledge and intellect was given to man, so man can achieve Godhood and become a divine being, of who were supposed to be. The doctrine is one of the same for the established elites – the exclusive knowledge to achieve immortality and become Gods without the help of the creator God – all a while denying any accountability of sins in trying to achieve this goal. All this can be stretched back to Adam and Eve, when Satan said to Eve “Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as Gods, knowing good and evil.” (Satan to Eve, Genesis 3:4-5, n.d). Satan knowing that eating the fruit of life humankind was subject to death, the line “ye shall not surely die,” a lie hidden in words.
While there exists a collective parallel agenda that can match biblical references in Genesis, it’s still a baseless assumption to believe that the New Age is subjected to same representation – the notion that believing in reincarnation, spiritual evolution is another form of the apple, which I personally don’t believe – while Buddhists convey that reincarnation is something that you must get out of the perpetual cycle, but implying that it’s another form of the apple, when it’s just a mere parallel; by its logic everything after the apple is a sin. It’s a conflict raised by fundamentalism that has some esoteric knowledge. This kind of thinking only reinforces a false Esoteric Agenda; there is a splitting and combing of history with beliefs. The New Age is relatively new and amorphic, but before the New Age label it was known to be various groups that knew occult and esoteric knowledge – in its early days it was free from the established elite, but once infiltrated started to become more agenda driven, hence this propensity for an Esoteric Agenda component that the conspiracy-Christians love to advocate – however, there exists mutual exclusivity. Discerning truth and fiction should be exercised; this was true to early occultist as well.
So here we have Christianity, which works with the political left, which is an offset of Egyptian Beliefs, with the understanding of the Mystery Schools where upon they took over the occult groups, which is now called Mystery Religions. The Vatican has a vast knowledge of ancient text, which is not part of Italy and is controlled by the Jesuits. The Catholic Church is responsible for the New-Testament writings, changing explicit Genesis writing while not entirely dismissing the book of Enoch.
There is a contention where the Christian right is trying to convey that the new age is part of the New Order to be one of the same, there is certain aspect of this that is true; since the founder of Esalen died and the re-interrogation of the Rockefellers as new management to the Esalen Institute – paved the way for the New Age to rise only to become an agenda driven institute. However, that’s not to say purists or followers of the old-New-Age can’t exist – this gives the Christian’s notion as being one of the same as the New Order to be purely base on conjecture because it would mean discerning many books – since the appearance of the Dead Sea Scrolls and Gnostic texts, Christians have not afforded the same contention within themselves. The spiritualist has to fight two fronts to maneuver around – the Christian right and the rationale Atheist. The Spiritualist has to explain why both are part of a deliberate dialectal polarity set in place for them to waste their time on. The Spiritualist is in a way the new Philosopher, and stands outside from these two polarizing beliefs, and here is why?
Both the Christian Right and Atheist, both these institutions have offset followers, such as Christian Science, Agnostics and Humanist, they all have a common ideology, a lack of faith or a blatant denial of God. While also having a myopia to anyone wanting to reach enlightenment or to be awaken, or reaching Christ-consciousness the Christian right will say “Christ” is the son of God, but no one else just him. The New Age describes reaching Christ-consciousness is one of the same as reaching enlightenment or being aware or reaching Satori; while the Atheist disbelief God outright, until explained by science. The Christian right has moral ground to reduce the New Age group because it has no wall to stop any merging infiltration, so this gives the Christian right a way to box in the New age to be corrupted. This is dangerous it gives them a judge like complex, so what you have is an infiltrated Christian right, reducing the New Age to a conspiracy, in which the Christian right is also a part of (which is a total mind twist); it’s a form of deflection while suggesting their truth is absolute.
Eckhart Tolle, in his book ‘A New Earth,’ in the sub-section ‘Truth: Relative or Absolute,’ subheading ‘I am right you are wrong’: outlines that it’s dangerous in personal relationships as well as in interactions between nations, tribes, religions and so on. The history of Christianity is, of course, a prime example of how the belief that you are in sole possession of the truth, that is to say, right, can corrupt your actions and behavior to the point of insanity. For centuries, torturing and burning people alive if their opinion diverged even in the slightest from the Church doctrine or narrow interpretations of the scripture (Truth) was considered right because the victims were “wrong” They were so wrong that they needed to be killed. The truth was considered more important than human life. And what was the truth? A story you had to believe in; which means, a bundle of thoughts. (Eckhart Tolle, n.d)
Eckhart describes The Catholic and the churches correct in identifying relativism that there is no absolute truth to guide human behavior, being one of the evils of our time. Then, stating that “it won’t be found if you look for it in doctrines, ideologies, sets of rules, or stories, and all this is common to the notion of thought.” He says: “Thought can be at best point to the truth, but it is never the truth.” That’s why Buddhists say: “The finger pointing to the moon is not the moon.” He then interprets this through the ego, he explains, you can use them in the service of the ego, or you can use them in the service of Truth. If you believe, only your religion is the Truth, you are using it in the service of the ego, in such a way; religion becomes ideology and creates an illusory sense of superiority as well as division and conflict between people. In the service of the Truth, religious teachings represent a signposts or maps left behind by awakened humans to assist you in spiritual awakening, that is to say, in becoming free of identification with form. (Eckhart Tolle, n.d)
Eckhart further describes truth inwardly, he outlines: and the Truth is inseparable from who you are – yes, you are the Truth. If you look for it elsewhere, you will be deceived every time. The very being that you are is Truth. Jesus tried to convey that when he said “I am the way and the truth and the life.” These words uttered by Jesus are one the most powerful and direct pointers to the Truth, if understood correctly, if misinterpreted, can become a great obstacle. (Eckhart Tolle, n.d)
Kierkegaard a polar opposite to Marxist thinking at the time is a philosopher, who explores Christianity subjectively, is an existentialist, and kind of early Humanist. He however, had no interest in any external institutions like progress or consumer society, and that individualism were being stifled. His views on religious belief, he says: “What is this self of mine, it is the most abstract of all things, and yet at the same time it’s the most concrete. Its freedom, the consciousness of being an individual, which is fundamental in man, is his consciousness of eternity. Christianity is not a doctrine, it is an existence communication, it can only be expounded, when being realized in Men’s Lives.” Which he later expands a more definitive verse; he says “My task is so new that in Christianity’s 1800 years, there is literally not one from whom I can learn, on how it should be done? For all extraordinary men who hither to live, have aimed at spreading Christianity, my task is to put a Halt, to lying diffusion of Christianity, to help shake of a massive nominal Christians. The worst danger for Christianity is not Hersey, heterodoxies, not free thinkers nor pro-vein wordiness, but it’s the kind of orthodoxies, which is hearty twaddle, mediocrity with a dash of sugar, in every way that has come to this that what we all came to know as Christianity, is precisely what Christ came to Abolish.” (Kierkegaard n.d)
This is no more apparent with contemporary America especially in the Bible belt area, there entrenched in this cul-de-sac that it borders in cult like status. Upon this, you will have people like Steve Quale (a fundamentalist Christian), preaching New Age ideologies (but more precisely historical myth) that he obviously adopted from the Mystery School teachings then using that as vehicle of fear to reinforce an Evangelical following. He makes people aware of this, then brainwash them by saying that the teaching of the gospel is the only way. Unknowledgeable Christians fall prey to this, while the New Age only advocates enlightenment within; Quale and his group of followers will use it as means of control, through fear.
Alan Watt’s lecture on ‘Jesus and his religion,’ outlines that Jesus was a human being like Buddha, Shera Krishna, Rana Hamachi and so forth – who in their life had a colossal experience of cosmic-consciousness, and that this can happen to anyone it’s like falling in love and that you don’t have to be part of any religion to experience it, he says: “when it hits you, you know it; sometimes it comes from long practice of meditation and spiritual discipline. Sometimes it comes for no reason you can determine, we say it’s the grace of God. That there comes this overwhelming conviction that you have mistaken your identity – that what I thought was me, was completely superficial, and that I am an expression of X (God) – the name that cannot be named, the name that was Taboo, amongst the Hebrews. There is no longer the separate you, it’s only this happening going on, and if you have the name in the background – this happening is God, or the will of God, or the Doing of God, or if you don’t have that word in your background – you will say it’s the flowing of the Tao, or it’s the Maya of Brahman, Maya meaning the creative illusion, the play.” Having this experience can make people feel genuine amongst others, and be inspired, seeing the divine in people’s eyes. (Alan Watts, n.d)
Alan Watts further elaborates Jesus Cosmic Experience, was not a product of omniscience, Saint Paul’s makes this clear that Jesus renounced his divine powers so as to be man, he says: “Let this mine be a new, which was also in Christ Jesus, who being in the form of God, though not equality with God a thing to be hung to, but humbled himself, and made himself of no reputation and was fashioned as a man and became obedient to death.” Theologians calls this Kenosis, self-emptying, so an omniscience man or omnipotent would not be a man, so an orthodox doctrine of the nature of Christ, that he was both true God and true man, you must say for true God to be united with true man. True God has to make a voluntary renunciation of omniscience, omnipotence, and omnipresence, so therefore if Jesus was to come out and say I am the son of God, that’s like saying I am the boss’s son, or I am the boss. Everyone will view this as Blasphemy or subversion – that is like trying to introduce democracy into the kingdom of heaven, no man has seen God. In Jesus’s esoteric teachings recorded at the synoptic Gospel, he made it clear that he didn’t come right out there and say he was the son of God. Instead, he identified himself with the messiah described in the second part of the prophet Isaiah, “The suffering serpent who was despised and rejected of men,” and this man is the non-political Messiah, it was convenient to make that identification even though it would get him into trouble. However, to his elect disciple as recorded in Saint John, he said “Before Abraham was, I am, I am the way the Truth and the Life, I am the resurrection of Life, I am the living bread that comes down from heaven, I am the father are one, and he who has seen me, has seen the father.” Upon the Jews finding out, put him to death for blasphemy. (Alan Watts, n.d)
This is because it happens to any mystic who’ve had this experience; it happened to a Sufi Mystic in Persia. With this in mind, Christ was pedestalized, so his troublesome experience with cosmic-consciousness would not come and cause a nuisance. Others, who have this experience and expressed it at time when the Church had power, were persecuted. If you pedestalized Jesus, you strangle the Gospel at birth, and it’s been the tradition in the Catholic Church, and Protestant, to pass of an emasculated Gospel. Gospel means good news, what is the good news about Gospel ordinarily handed down? “Because here is the revelation of God in Christ Jesus, and were supposed to follow his life and example, without the unique advantage of being the boss’s son. Now both traditions catholic and Protestant Churches, represent Jesus to us as a freak, born of a virgin, knowing he is the son of God, having the power of miracles, knowing it’s impossible to kill him his going to rise again, and were asked to take up the cross and follow him, when we don’t know that about ourselves at all. So, what happened is this, we are delivered by an impossible Gospel.” However, upon this Christianity institutionalized guilt. (Alan Watts, n.d)
This is the Christianity of most people, now there is a subtler form of Christianity with the Theologians, the Mystics and the Philosophers. However, this is not what gets preached, “What would the real Gospel be”? The real good news is not simply that Jesus of Nazareth was the son of God, but that he was a powerful son of God, who came to open everybody’s eyes – to that fact that you are too. This was said in the 10th chapter of Saint James verse 30, he said “I am the father are one. Many good work I have shown you from the father, and from which of these do you stone me” and they said; “for good work we stone you not, but for Blasphemy for being man, make yourself God” and he replied; “isn’t written in your law, I have said you are Gods, if god called to whom he gave his word, you can’t deny scripture, how can you say I Blaspheme? Because I said I am the son of God,” this isn’t peculiar to Jesus, when he says; ‘I am the way and no man comes to the father,’ but by me, this, I am, this me, is the divine in us. Which in Hebrew is called the Roich Adeni; this is best outlined in the Esoteric Jews, the Cabalist and the Hasidic. The Roich is the breath which God breathed into the nostril of Adam, is different from the soul. The Roich (psyche) is the divine in the creature by virtue of which sons of are, or the nature of God, manifestations of the divine. This discovery is the Gospel, that’s the good news, but has been repressed throughout history in western religion because all western religion has taken the form of celestial monarchies. This therefore discouraged democracy in the kingdom of heaven. (Alan Watts, n.d)
Until the teachings of the German mystics, in the 15th century, there began a movement such as the Anabaptist, The Brothers of The Free Spirit, Levellers, and the Quakers, a spiritual movement that came to this country, and found a Republic. It is from the white racist Christians, that we have the threat of fascism because they have a religion that is Militant; which is not the religion of Jesus, which was the realization of divine son-ship, but the religion about Jesus, which pedestalized him, and says only this man is the divine, and you have better recognize it. Upon this realization they proclaim themselves as the Church militant, onward Christian soldiers march us to war, utterly exclusive, convinced in advance of examining the doctrines of any other religion is the top religion. Not realizing what it does teach would be far more credible if it were truly Catholic, that is to say, re-stated again the truth that has been known from time in memorial. Every religion should be self-critical, otherwise it will degenerate to self-righteous hypocrisy, if then, we can see this that Jesus speaks not from the situation of a historical Deus Machina, of a weird of extraordinary event, but he is voice that joins with other voices that have said in every place and time, “wake up man, wake up.” (Alan Watts, n.d)
To conclude; you only have to go to YouTube and you will see the number of videos depicting the number of Christians still thinking this way, instead of Christian soldiers marching us to war, like Alan watts said, it’s Christian video propaganda spreading backwards ideals, for instance the demonization of yoga, Zen, meditation practices, that’s just one of many other facets that they will drive to people.
