The Criminal Duplicity of the Mainstream Journalist

We are faced by a shocking fact these days: the profession of journalism, and I speak of mainstream media journalism, has descended into truly toxic levels of printed and broadcast disinformation. One can now virtually count on the fact that what is being said on any topic of political significance, will be a carefully scripted trotting-out of government and corporate propaganda.

That is not journalism. That is what George Orwell called ‘News Speak’.

It is a dangerous game which these news hacks are playing. They are witnessing one event and describing it as quite another event. Let me amplify this by looking at the stories emanating out of the Middle East.

It must be obvious to most of us by now that Russia, via Putin, is being held responsible for pretty much everything which is no longer working well for Western engineered neoliberal/neocon hegemonic globalism. In fact, the stream of accusations against Putin’s Russia have descended into near or actual farce, due mainly to the fact that they are not backed by any factual evidence. We are all simply supposed to ‘know’ that Mr Evil is at it again and that the West must ready itself to take action against his ‘tyrannical activities’. (more…)

The Politics of Deception

We had better recognize, today rather than tomorrow, that deception, lies and hypocrisy are now endemic in the great majority of political institutions of this planet.

They are so institutionally ingrained within the established patterns of behavior on display in Westminster, Washington and Warsaw – not to mention Brussels, Berlin and Barcelona – that one can hardly fail to reach the conclusion that the ability to lie convincingly has become the key factor in determining personal advancement within the party-political pyramid.

Much of this deceit is jaw droppingly opaque. To the extent that we are told that white is black, war is peace and slavery is freedom. No exaggeration.

It must surely be apparent by now, that trusting a politician to carry out what he/she promised to do if elected, is as naive as expecting a narcissist to survive without a vanity mirror.

We are being treated to an exhibition in the art of guile and deception every time we confront the realities of ‘the democratic process’ which is supposed to be guiding the affairs of state of the Western World. (more…)

Concerning the Integration of Past Experiences

Nothing which becomes manifest ever disappears. It becomes integrated into the great body of ethereal matter we call ‘the collective unconscious.’

If we try to sublimate our painful and less happy experiences, they will simply reappear at our time of passing, and play their role in determining the work still required of us in the next cycle of reincarnation.

But we can lay all before the omnipotent compassion of Source and ask to be aided in our process of psychic and emotional healing. Healing and integration are two indivisible parts of one whole.

Pushing away that which we feel disinclined to face up to, actually makes that thing stronger. (more…)

From the Christian Cross to the Mobile Phone Tower

A Brief History of Mind Control

For a long time now, some force alien to the spiritual and humanistic evolution of humanity has been working hard to subvert, and then reverse, the true awakening of human consciousness.

This force, working with both words and symbols, has effectively side-tracked humanity for its own ends. Erecting countless barriers on the path that leads to conscious awareness.

Quite a feat! Especially when one considers that, somewhere within, all of us are primed to react positively to love, joy, creativity and exploration of the unknown.

Any force or entity intending to squash that lot must surely have access to some pretty advanced insights. Insights into just where to find the potential fissures in our ‘state of wholeness’. And then, to know exactly what to do to ensure that they are prized open and made extremely difficult to close again! (more…)

Immaculate Conception – A Dark Side Deception

…leading to the rise of the Crypto Male

One of the things that might have given sex a bad name here on planet Earth, was the supposed arrival of highly realized beings whose conception (we are informed) did not come about via an act of conjugation between a man and a woman. Nor, one presumes, via an act of in-vitro fertilization.
But by some other means. Something which, as in the case of The Virgin Mary, the bible calls ‘Immaculate Conception’.

Now the word ‘immaculate’ suggests something without a flaw; something pure and perfect. And if the pure and the perfect are directly associated with being ‘sex free’ then – right from the outset – the sexual act is somehow denigrated. Denigrated as being less than pure.

So, does this mean that making progress in spiritual development has been linked, directly or indirectly, with the notion of somehow needing to rise above and beyond the act of sexual union? Beyond the expression of the duality inherent in male and female? In Yin and Yang? And in the process, has duality, as the source of sexual attraction, itself been reduced to that which needs to be ‘overcome’ rather than celebrated? (more…)

The Original Sin – A Myth Whose Time Is Up

Of all the deceptions pulled on humanity over the ages, The Original Sin is probably the most devastating. Yet hugely successful from the perspective of the perpetrators.

Almost everywhere the doctrine of Christianity forged its zealous mission to convert the masses, so the Original Sin accompanied it. Imposing the rationale of guilt on untold millions whose open minds no doubt thought they were receiving a message of emancipation and light.

Not so my friends, you were in fact receiving a message just about as dark as darkness gets!

The extraordinary power of a message, properly formed, packaged and publicized, is something we have all come to learn a lot about in recent decades. ‘The medium is the message’ declared Marshall McLuhan back in 1964. And that edict could easily pass for the moment the first biblical texts let it be known that a man called Adam and a woman called Eve got the whole human race off to a very bad start … from which it appears to have never recovered.

There’s a Seal On The Soul

. . . . . that cannot be removed

None of us who were raised in the orthodox Christian Tradition are likely to remember the moment when the priest placed his index finger on our foreheads and moved it so as to record the shape of the cross on our tiny brows.

Yet this moment becomes a symbolic and strategic ‘freeze frame’ within the wider context of our initiation into the control system called ‘society’.

Some at the receiving end of this ritual have gone on to repeat it with their own children. Holding, or passing to the priest, the little bundle of innocence so that the mark of the cross can be painted onto that beautiful expanse which links the two temples. But there’s one thing one can almost certainly count on, the fact that almost nobody truly understands what they are doing. (more…)

The Appointment With Infinity

Part 2 of ‘The Active Side of Infinity’

The writings of Carlos Castaneda: commentary by Julian Rose

“The practicalities that scientists are interested in are conducive to building more and more machines. They are not geared to reaching the vastness of the universe as a personal, experiential affair.”

“Someday I’ll tell you more about the forces that drive man to act like an ass. Some of us make sense when we talk because we are prepared to use words accurately. But most of us are not prepared to take ourselves seriously as men who are going to die.
Being immortal, we wouldn’t know how to do that. It makes no difference what complex machines scientists can build. The machines can in no way help anyone face the unavoidable appointment: the appointment with infinity.” (more…)

The Active Side of Infinity

Carlos Castaneda and Julian Rose

“Every one of us human beings has two minds. One is totally ours, it is like a faint voice that always brings us order, directness, purpose. The other is a foreign installation. It brings us conflict, self-assertion, doubts, hopelessness: it’s ourselves as the ‘me-me’ centre of the world.”

Thus spoke Carlos Castaneda in ‘The Active Side of infinity’ which is part of the ‘Teachings of Don Juan’ series. And I’m going to give you more excerpts from The Active Side of Infinity. Because I believe that these writings present Shamanic teachings to us in a direct, powerful way – and at a time when we most need them. (more…)

Seizing Control of Our Destinies

In 1381, at a time of great repression for the British agricultural work force, an extraordinary people’s revolutionary named Wat Tyler sprang to his feet and announced “England should be a nation of self governing communities” to which he added “ No lord shall exercise lordship over the people, and, as we are oppressed by so vast a hoard of bishops and clerks, the property of the holy church should be taken and divided.”

His colleague, the priest John Ball, spoke out with equal fervour “The lords’ claims to be more lords than we are rests solely on their power to force us to labour that they may spend.” (more…)
