As the world slides closer daily to what the Shivapuri Baba described as a 6,000-year societal catastrophe, it is certainly curious to observe how those who fancy themselves the rulers of mankind continue to attempt to gather all power, authority, and wealth into their hands.
Instead of attempting to devise a rational program to ameliorate the economic and ecological damage that has been perpetrated through financial control of the means of production based on a system of expropriation and usury, the ruling class and its minions in the military-intelligence complex imagine that they can create safe havens for themselves while ignoring the welfare of the masses upon whom they depend for their fabulous levels of income and wealth. Not to mention the forces of nature whose resources they think they own.
It’s as though a tapeworm reasoned to itself, while living in the belly of its host, that if it accelerated the rate at which it sucked the lifeblood from its victim, it would eventually grow large and powerful enough to survive when the victim died.
What a joke.
People with reason increasingly sense that a chain of events this absurd cannot possibly be “real.” And they are right. In fact the world within which the elitist controllers and their hapless victims–the sheeple–reside is real enough, but their perception of it is hopelessly skewed. They all–masters and slaves alike–believe that the more they “get,” the better off they will be, when in reality not one single human being on the planet can “get”–much less keep–anything at all.
Each and every one of us is only a tiny cell in an infinite body of splendor and divinity which is the Universe. The ability to see and sense our place within this infinite body has always been the hallmark of the man or woman of real culture. Not a single one of the present-day controllers falls within this definition and precious few of their victims. Rather all are locked into a world view which in its essence is Satanic–meaning, they live under an illusion. The illusion is that whoever they imagine themselves to be in this particular ephemeral incarnation is real and exists as a part separate from the whole. This false sense of separation can be individual or collective, as in the illusion, for instance, that a person can “get ahead” at the expense of others, or that there is such a thing on earth as a “chosen people.”
So it is time for all who wish to save themselves in any respect from the onrushing collapse to renounce, absolutely and without compromise, every assumption, belief, value, and lie put forth by the entire “official” world of media, education, politics, economics, science, etc., except those things we can verify based on our own common sense and experience.
Face the fact that almost nothing you have heard or learned from any of these sources is true in an absolute sense. Realize that many of the alternative views you have imbibed, say, from your religious training, are almost equally flawed. Discover that only by going deeply within yourself–right now–and starting to listen intently and with humility to whatever particle of God-given conscience you may have access to is there any hope for you or anyone you know and love.
Find that voice within, even if you have to turn off the TV or log off the internet for a while, and go off by yourself and just sit quietly for a few hours. Then make it a habit. You might even pray to God or His angels for guidance. Then wait patiently. Then make a conscious decision to act according to your highest understanding of what is true for you, even if you are somewhat uncertain about it.
This is the only way we will ever learn to do what is right and refrain from doing what is evil. Then it won’t matter what crazy things happen or are done in the world around us. We will eventually make for ourselves an immortal body of truth that can survive anything.
