First off I'm not an intellectual (thank God) or a writer per se, and this blog isn't really a blog: it's an evolving text to be honed and expanded as the inspiration (or inclination) comes. It certainly isn't finished.
What I am is a no nonsense discerner of the human spiritual condition. In that regard I do not seek to gratify or sycophantically oblige anyone. I was over 30 years a new ager and I'm well aware many are extremely sensitive and defensive about their beliefs, so I warn you: my views are rather leftfield and also somewhat controversial - I'm bound to offend. There are many factors telling me this is not a time to bow to political correctness and hold back, I can only hope some of you don't stop up your ears but are open to the Spirit of the letter. If you bear with me I'll make myself very clear and point out the dark origin and intentions of the faux love and light "new" age, offering a straightforward perspective on some vitally important though much maligned Spiritual Truths.
I'm here to resist and admonish the new age tsunami and push back hard with something old yet forever new; something right against the hordes of "cosmic" hauteurs with their manifold - fatuous - parapsychogenic delusions, to help show that humility is the authentic Way of spirit. My intention, if I may be so bold, is to address the runaway spiritual immaturity - even madness - of our times and add some pure Spirit to the metaphysical morass of the past few millennia.
Like many people nowadays and throughout history (to greater or lesser degrees) I've realised I'm an immortal spirit in essence. This isn't mere speculation, nor is it fanciful thinking: it is explicit awareness arising from deep within my being.
Spirit is Forever, no one ceases to exist.
(It is where we exist that is the great matter at hand).
I've been into a variety of spirits and my own spirit most of my life, reaching the Heights and depths of the latter while absorbing the copious lies of the former. In recent years I've come to a more astonishing realisation: there is another Spirit abroad in the world, one that is nothing of me, one Purer and Holier than we can currently comprehend.
The Spirit of Truth.
The wisdom of men and women - those leaning on their own understandings - pale in comparison. I generally don't like making a big deal about spiritual stuff; my previous persona cruised happily along in Brahman, not making much of a fuss - just going with the new age flow.....Yet this particular Spirit is a very big deal and an ongoing surprise; it's given me something to say. It isn't by chance this has happened in these times. At first it became disconcertingly apparent there is a marked human spirit/Spirit distinction, the realisation of which carries enormous ramifications for anyone, especially established new agers - if they are open.
(I use the term new age loosely, in reference to all spiritists, mediums, metaphysicians, esoteric teachers and paradigm shifters).
Multitudes are exalting themselves nowadays (rather stuck up a lot of 'em): thinkin they're somethin, thinkin they've got a handle on spirituality, making careers out of being know it alls; thinkin Spirit is to do with the body/mind and feelings, not something wholly other than. Unlike them I don't presume to embody all knowledge. The sort of spiritual knowledge those people espouse is provenanced in ancient subterfuge. I've come to recognise two extensive sources of spiritual knowledge: one True and Infinite, the other false and finite (merely giving the illusion of infinity).
I have specific insight, an inner cognition I wish to communicate and do not weave elaborate fictions around it - the new age is doing quite enough of that.
I'm living and learning, and - more or less distrustful of contemporary disseminators of "spiritual" channellings, doctrines and esoteric systems for good reason - receiving much needed teaching and guidance from inspired scripture. This isn't idle curiosity, amazingly my understanding has been opened to the Spiritual inspiration behind scripture: written by ones unsullied by our sort of advanced materialism, who laboured for a Greater Reality free of the materially hinged conceits, technological distractions and electromagnetic interferences - basically the holistic bullshit of our modern age.
In short (and to be expounded upon) I'm no longer playing the new age game.
An ambiguous aspect of my internal awareness often estranged me to the "real" world. Commonly feeling alienation from friends and acquaintances, in later years - influenced by hindu thought waves - I came to know it a characteristic of an Avadhuta, which made sense because most human systems and socialities appear absurd, they always have. This personal idiosyncrasy led me through the new age and brahman consciousness. Now my heads been turned and I must curtail the Infinite Absolutes and embrace some cosmic actualities. I'm an intuitive and a sensitive: after 31 years of new age musings, meditations and general messin' about, I proclaim:
Heart Consciousness is the only True Consciousness.
But I'm certainly not talking in "new age" terms here.
We live in a world of extremes; life can be a pain in the ass or a whole lotta fun, and everything in between. This is a realm of deep darkness and also Great Light, but it's the darkness that continues to hold sway over the mainstream.
The way things are, are not the way things were meant to be - or can be. Actually, the way things are is a big joke, and the jokes on us. It would be hilarious if it wasn't so tragic, causing the heartbreak and brutal death of billions of people. New agers are willfully ignorant of the whys, wherefores and consequencies of the enormity of historic and contemporary suffering. The gut wrenching evil and immensity of hurt to both man and beast has fractured the collective spirit, psychically crippling mankind; we're no longer in affinity with the One True Light but are blinkered and selective with our love and empathies. "Oh we shouldn't think about all that" - goes new age reasoning - "it's too negative. Be positive and radiate love and light" as if they're so many awakened spiritual masters 😔 It's in our genes people. Acknowledging civilisations bedrock of suffering allows us to perceive where we really are as opposed to where we like to think we are in make-believe. Mankind is a deeply wounded race numbed to the point of insensibility, living in it's dreambody and prone to fantastical flights of fancy: enabling high susceptibility to multiple incursions from hosts of shiny esoteriic phantasms spreading a great many spiritual lies.
Spirit has been here throughout, serving and ministering against all odds, seeking anyone open to It's Presence and Grace.
So called intellectuals (the worldly wise) scoff at notions of spirit, they often mistake it for religion and generally think it's bullshit, bashing science around our heads as if it proves a point. Well science works for sure, we see that all around us; yet science isn't without it's bullshit, it bullshits us about our true reality - by denying the existence of spirit it is bullshitting the entire world.
I can appreciate the awesome beauty of the scientific universe, but there's something far more profound about a human being than mere physics.
So-called reality is a scam on our souls most folks are in complete denial of. Mainstream science is blind to spirit and blinding the majority along with it. For all the pragmatism and endeavour, science will never provide a complete answer to life, the universe and everything, for spirit cannot be measured, it cannot be contained in a test tube or cultivated in a petrie dish, it isn't observable under a microscope. It will not be discovered via a large hadron collider. The only place spirit can be discerned is within and about us: by fusing the nuclei of our heart and mind with a Greater Heart/Mind - releasing an energy not of death and destruction, but of Life and Creation.
It's in no way wise to put our faith solely in science and psychology for our ultimate progress. As a Spiritual Aspirant I can appreciate the pragmatism of science while realising Spirit works just as well in the world, and more: with our cooperation It can work Miracles.
For thousands of years the earth has been held under a deep spiritual darkness, although it appears light here it is a sham light, the purpose of which is to constantly deceive. Right now the world is dominated by a fallen presence shining a counterfeit light: from the perspective of True Spirit our world is as dark, dank and mixed up an arena as you can get; but HalleluYAH! Praise be:
There is an Omnipotent Totality of Eternal Spirit manifesting as Perfect Being.
That Spirit of Perfect Being doesn't conform to the whims and ways of this world. It doesn't work through the sort of materialistic sciences man is now almost entirely dependent upon. Neither does it manifest through the myriad of self-help gurus and pop psychologists a great many people put so much stock on these days. Nor does It express Itself through sex or body consciousness. It works via a wholly other transcosmic realm of intent and activity.
The Spirit of Perfect Being carries no airs and graces, displaying no arrogance or snobbery. It's prime directive is Love and Service, following cosmic rules and regulations to the letter. In action It is forthright and to the point. Scripture records the activities of Spirit in the affairs of mankind, scribed by those moved by Spiritual Presence, harbouring zero desires for prestige or any fears of losing life, money or livelihood by proclaiming profound truths most people didn't like - or understand.
Only those up their own ass ignore the Paragon Insight of Inspired Scripture.
