"... in all this world there is nothing more upsetting than the clobbering of a cherished belief." - Charlie Brown
I'm known on the internet by the "cosmic" name Da-Renn or even Da-Renn Avadhut but for here I'm prompted to use my given name: a gesture of humility that is both right and good.
I'm not an intellectual (thank God) or a writer per se and this blog isn't really a blog; it's a testimony of sorts, an evolving text to be honed and expanded as I grow in Spirit and the inspiration comes. The core sentiments remain the same but mine is such a transient mind that everytime I look additions or rearrangements need to be made... it certainly isn't finished.
I've never been normal. 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 a refined sensitivity to being alive.
Spirit is forever, no one ceases to exist.
(It is where we exist that is the great matter at hand).
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 bullshit: it bullshits 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. However, there's something far more profound about a human being than physics.
I was over 30 years a new ager: musing, meditating and generally messing about. An ambiguous aspect of awareness often estranged me from the "real" world. Commonly feeling alienated from frends and acquaintances, in later years - strongly influenced by those hindu thought waves - I came to know it characteristic of an Avadhuta, which made sense because most human systems and socialities appear absurd, they always have. This personal idiosyncrasy led me through religions, sub religions and the new age with it's merry assortment of star beings, ascended masters and archangels. I was deep into hinduism for years and for a time experienced Brahman consciousness. Now my heads been wholly turned and I must curtail the Infinite Absolutes to embrace some clear and present actualities.
I'm a no nonsense discerner of the human spiritual condition. I do not seek to gratify or sycophantically oblige anyone. As a lifelong new ager self-righteously walking "my own path" thinkin I had it all sussed and sorted I'm well aware many hundreds of millions are hyper-sensitive and extremely defensive about their beliefs, and so I warn you: my views are rather leftfield and also somewhat controversial, I'm bound to offend. I may upset you. For those who've known me this new insight is as much of a surprise to me as it likely is to you. I don't like hurting feelings but there are many factors telling me this is not a time to hold back because of a reluctance to do so. 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 heritage and intentions of the love & light new age* and reveal - somewhat - the truth about the gamut of ascended masters, archangels/light beings of the new age while offering a straightforward perspective on some much maligned though vitally important spiritual truths.
*I'm speaking primarily for new agers and non-secular folk alike. I use the term new age very loosely in reference to all occultists, spiritists, mediums, metaphysicians, esoteric teachers, shamans, mystical kooks, new earthers and paradigm shifters: basically everyone reading this.
It's obvious the world is operating under an ancient esoteric dupery - a gigantic spiritual fugazi. With all earnestness it's time to resist and admonish the new age tsunami of hooey and push back hard with something old yet forever new, something right against the hordes of "cosmic" hauteurs with their fatuous parapsychogenic delusions. It's time to inform them why they are mistaken, time to help them understand the universe doesn't function on their terms, that it doesn't operate the way they've been led to believe - that we cannot own spirituality.
It's time to realise that as a race we're being deceived wholesale.
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.
I've been into a variety of spirits and my own most of my life: reaching the Heights and depths of the latter while heeding the copious lies of the former. In recent years I've come to an 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 Spirit of Truth is One with Divine Wisdom, the spirit and wisdom of men and women pale in comparison. 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.
In recent years I generally haven't made a big deal about spirituality because such things are matter of fact; my previous persona cruised happily along dipping in and out of Brahman, not making much of a fuss, just going with the new age flow - thinkin it the right way to go. Yet this particular Spirit is a very big deal and an ongoing surprise, bringing manifold earth shaking revelations.
Along with Spirit of Truth there is another spirit hard at work in the world: the spirit of lies. Both are ancient and multifarious in activity but only one is of the Truth. The other is a liar and the father of lies. We fail to recognise the spirit of lies until allied with the Spirit of Truth.
It takes courage and heaps of humility to follow the Spirit of Truth, for it shows startling things about the world, things devastating to our previous ways of thinking and relating psychologically and spiritually. It's become apparent mankind is a deceived race being taken for an almighty ride, and posolutely not in an amusement park; yet multitudes are exalting themselves these days: 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 not something wholly other than. Unlike them I don't arrogantly presume access to all knowledge. The strains of exotic knowledge such sonorous ones espouse are provenanced in ancient subterfuge.
There are but two sources of spiritual knowledge: one True and Infinite, the other false and finite - merely giving the illusion of infinity.
I used to think the new age had things the right way up regarding judeo/christian scripture; but now I see how twisted is it's vision - of pretty much everything. 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 - completely distrustful of contemporary disseminators of "spiritual" doctrines, channelings and esoteric systems - receiving much needed teaching/guidance from inspired scripture. This is no latter-day indoctrination, my understanding has been opened to scripture, a secondary effect of being open to the Presence of Spirit. I'd read it all before but not like I do now, something blocked my understanding, even patience for such things. I now see the twisted metaphysics behind scriptural obfuscation. They are no dead letter: amazingly, with the indwelling Spirit scripture reads as if written today, the ink still wet; providing sound examples to future generations for guidance and edification.
Although much effort has been expended to defame and greatly misrepresent, the scriptures remain absolutely spiritually sound: authored by ones unsullied by our sort of advanced materialism, labouring for a Greater Reality free of the materially hinged conceits, technological distractions and electromagnetic interferences - basically the holistic bullshit of our modern age.
It ain't all love 'n' light down here folks, not the way new agers think anyway. The way things are, are not the way things were meant to be, or will 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 wilfully ignorant of the whys and wherefores of the enormity of historic and contemporary suffering. The gut wrenching wickedness and immensity of hurt to both man and beast has densely fractured the collective human spirit; we're no longer in affinity but blinkered and extremely selective with love and empathy. But all that is looked upon as illusion, for there is no evil they say: "... we shouldn't concern ourselves about such things" - goes fallacious new age reasoning - "they're too negative. Instead be positive and radiate love and light" as if they're so many spiritual masters 😔 There is evil and it's in our genes people. Cognizing modern civilisations bedrock of war, suffering and death allows a clearer perception of where we really are as opposed to where we like to think we are in make-believe (and what extreme make-believe it is, passed off as reality). From the Spiritual perspective mankind is still fast asleep and living a lucid communal dreambody wide open to multiple incursions from hosts of shiny esoteric phantasms spreading a great many esoteric lies.
Reality is a scam on our souls most folks are in complete denial of. Mainstream science is blind to Spirit and blinding billions 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. Spirit 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 discovered is within and about us.
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.
Spirit does not conform to the whims and ways of the world, It does not work through the sort of materialistic sciences mankind is almost entirely dependent upon. Spirit does not manifest through the myriad of self-help gurus and pop psychologists many people put so much stock on these days. Spirit isn't expressed through sex or body consciousness. Spirit isn't revealed through drugs or ingesting psychedelics: Spirit works via a wholly other transcosmic realm of activity to all of that.
Spirit carries no airs and graces, displaying no arrogance or snobbery. Spirit's prime directive is love and service, following cosmic rules and regulations to the letter. In action Spirit is forthright and to the point. Scripture records the activities of Spirit in the affairs of mankind, scribed by those moved by the Presence of Spirit; harbouring zero desires for prestige or any fears of losing their 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.
