AN AGE WITHOUT ELDERS

“In modern life, instead of people growing ‘older and wiser,’ people can simply grow older and older. People can live longer and longer without becoming any wiser for it.”

img_8923

Since time immemorial, the elders among a people always held a special place of high esteem.  They were understood to be the members of a society who had spent their lives contributing to and serving their family, their community and their tribe/nation.  These were the men and women who laid the groundwork so the tribe could survive and thrive.

After these men and women were done with their normative duties of raising a family and doing the sorts of work that is required of the able bodied, they did not “retire” away from the life of the community, but on the contrary, they became an even more integral part of it.

These elders became the “wise men/women”, who  served their people by freely offering their wealth of experience and wisdom gained from real experience and hardship.  Hence, they became in many cases, the true leaders of a people- at times even beyond the sovereign, who quite often looked to these sorts of people for guidance.  In other societies, the council of elders essentially WAS the governing body.

The elders of the traditional society had the people’s admiration and respect because they earned it.

This is no longer the way things are.  We no longer have a class of elders who can guide us through their maturity, experience and wisdom.  We have a class of “olders“; a generation whose wisdom and maturity seems almost completely undifferentiated from that of their younger counterparts.

And while this transformation of elders into olders was a process that took multiple generations, and can be seen as intimately tied to industrialization and modernity; the Baby Boomers were the first to fully embody this shift where the post-child-rearing age members of the society went from being a class of wise men and women, to essentially being a class of old children.

Now there has been a surge of vitriol directed at this generation of Western “olders” (i.e. the Baby Boomer generation) in the mainstream/liberal media, scapegoating them as the cause of the rise in Nationalism that seems to threaten the “Liberal World Order“; which was established just after World War II by those in favor of a global capitalist system unconstrained by the boundaries of nation states.

Many pundits have blamed the Baby Boomer generation for the Brexit vote, that caused Britain to “begin processes” to leave the European Union.  In fact, the influence of Baby Boomers on the Brexit vote has caused left-leaning political “scientists” like Heath Pickering to propose giving Baby Boomers less of a vote, under the premise that they will not have to ‘live with the consequences of their political decisions

This idea was quickly picked up by pseudo-journalistic entertainment outfits like VICE, who published an article detailing Pickering’s opinions entitled, “Brexit Proves Baby Boomers Should Get Less of a Vote“.

"BRITISH" PROTESTORS AFTER BREXIT VOTE

But let’s be sure not to be mislead by the deceptive voices of the mainstream/liberal media.  The Baby Boomers that have been used as the scapegoat in the Brexit decision were those that lived primarily in the working class and rural areas of the U.K.- those who lived among the populations who were most detrimentally effected by the E.U.’s economic immigration policies.  They were voting for cultural, economic, and in many cases, literal survival.

These Brexit Boomers came from people who were not able to maintain the disconnected philosophy of  ivory tower liberals and rich-to-upper middle-class urbanites, who themselves, ironically, were culturally and economically sheltered from the consequences of their political decisions.

Here in the U.S., there is also a lot of venom being spewed against the Baby Boomers, essentially blaming them for the election of Trump, with many Baby Boomers themselves, like Bryan Blakely of Colorado, lamenting what they see as the failures of their generation, and even seeking some form of atonement:

We succumbed to the comfortable temptations of self-interest, left politics to others, and were blind to the rise of the ultra-conservative right (funded then, as now, by the Koch brothers and their fellow billionaires). We sat idly by as the affable Ronald Reagan set in motion policies (flattening the income tax, destroying unions, revoking the fairness doctrine) that have led to the destruction of the middle class and the rise of billionaires (who now buy politicians and dominate our politics).

We leave you a world where the two-income family is the inescapable norm, where day care replaces parenting, where it’s harder to buy a home, save for your children’s education, your retirement, or achieve an education without incurring massive debt. And under President Donald Trump, things will only get worse: The rich will get richer — and they will buy more politicians as the middle and lower classes decline in influence and economic standing. 

We let this happen: We ignored the lessons of Vietnam and Watergate. We allowed the lionization of Reagan, we made Trump possible. Many of us are trying to make amends. Help us.

There is much truth to this statement.  The Baby Boomers essentially milked the prosperity created by their parents’ and grandparents’ generation; and gave little in return.  The Neoconservative ideals that came to the forefront in the Regan/Bush administrations, have wreaked havoc on the world and aided in the overall socioeconomic decline of America in particular.

But let’s be clear- the problem with the Baby Boomers came LONG before so many of them “bought in” to the more nakedly capitalist neoliberal/neoconservative ideology.  It wasn’t because they abandoned the idealistic and faithful to the “core values” of the 60s Cultural Revolution, that caused the rise of all these things that so many no lament.

It was because they didn’t abandon these “values”, that ultimately caused the Baby Boomers to be act as a subversive and corrosive force in the West.  It was because of  Neo-Marxist ideals that they saw as virtue; ideals that were pushed on them in their spoiled naivety,  that caused them to become the generation that truly “lost the West” for their children and their descendants.

The internationalist ideals of Marxism were merged with the internationalist ideals of capitalism (not that they were ever TRULY separate), and became what is now known as the “Liberal World Order”.  Since the 1960s, these liberal/Marxist values became absorbed into the consumer capitalist system, culminating with “Social Justice” messaging being used in commercials.

Meanwhile, the “revolutionary” Neo-Marxist Critical Theory that was first disseminated by their college professors, has now become the lens through which college students come to understand the world.  Similarly the “triumphant values” of the various Neo-Marxist-inspired movements of the 1960s have become saturated in the media, helping to create the phenomenon known as “Cultural Marxism“.

The Baby Boomers rebelled against the traditional values of their parents in a way that was unprecedented.  They did not just to “come into their own”, but rather they almost seemed to resent what their ancestors had built for them as being “unfair” towards those their Marxist professors had told them were “oppressed“.

Their worldview existed as a negation of that world that had given birth to them.  They ultimately sought to tear down and invert nearly every single cultural norm and value that existed in the West at that time.  They were the first zealots of the “American Bolshevik Revolution” (a “revolution” being taken up by the Millennials).

The Baby Boomer generation were perhaps the most economically “privileged” generation to ever exist.  However, they shirked the responsibilities and became a generation that completely disregarded their role in carrying forward the material, cultural and spiritual wealth that is the legacy of their ancestors, to their descendants.  Instead, they seemed to chose to primarily “help” themselves, or those that had little-to-no connection to them.

This was largely due to a misguided resentment towards not only their parents’ generation, but Western culture as a whole; which in turn was disseminated to them through the intentionally subversive indoctrination taking pace at universities, as well as the influence of popular cultural figures like Timothy Leary, Alfred Kinsey, and the musicians that came out of Laurel Canyon.

The 1960s and its aftermath saw the concept of freedom turn from something that required self-reliance and responsibility; to what was essentially the ability to “do whatever I want“- without consequence of course.  America essentially went from having a mature, adult conception of freedom, to one that is akin to that of the child who finds his/her parent’s rules “oppressive“.

The Cultural Revolution of the 1960s is was what allowed for the integration and expansion of what has become the ideology of modern corporate globalism– the goal of World War II.  But now this system is falling apart due to its own unsustainable nature- and it is being touted as a travesty by sheltered college students, idealistic liberal grandparents and greedy hedge fund managers- all of whom see ensuring its survival as being one and the same as moral “goodness“.

It should come as no surprise that members of this 60s generation that protested seemingly anything and everything, are now “leading the charge” against President Trump.  Ironically, it was also the Baby Boomers that were the first generation to have television in the home from cradle to grave; the irony coming from the fact that the both the creation of Trump as a media personality and the “outrage” directed against him, is due in LARGE part to what people see and hear on TV- and the fact that they were raised to believe it was true.

This brings us to perhaps what is the most personally troubling aspect of the degeneration of our elders into olders, and that is their actual behavior.

During and after the Trump campaign, I found myself astounded at the generally childish behavior that people my parents’ age and older were displaying on line and in the streets.  I lost a great deal of respect for people that I had once held in fairly high esteem.  It was as if they were simply older, greyer versions of what they had been as kids in the 60s; almost as if their minds had been fossilized.

But this problem goes far beyond Trump hysteria or anything outright political.

We live in an age of the “cool mom” and the “hip dad” archetypes; where adults are more concerned with proving they’re “chill” or “with the times”, rather than actually proving they’re adults.  The result of this is children who don’t actually have parents, and end up being “raised” by other children- either figuratively or literally.

The Baby Boomers legacy is one of tearing down the “outdated” values and norms of Western society, and creating a vacuum; a hollow void that subsequent generations have been aimlessly rushing to fill with endless pleasure and distraction, while having no sense of meaning or purpose outside the shallow and superficial.

This has left a stunted, broken population with skyrocketing rates of suicide, mental illness, and degenerative disease; constantly striving to fill the void left by the destruction of a society rooted in Values beyond that of the material.

Humanism and Marxism’s attempts to secularize the idea of the “ideal human condition” has created only cheap counterfeits and destructive abominations- which are the results of any attempt to divorce the Spiritual dimensions from the affairs of this world, which is what secularization is.

The economic and political destruction overseen by the Baby Boomers as lamented by the left is largely material and ultimately, superficial.  The most serious damage is that done to the very fabric of their societies, due to the moral and spiritual corr of their beliefs and actions.

All that being said, we must be mindful that while it is certainly right to hold accountable and take to task those that are behaving in a way that is truly endangering the survival of the group (even if it is our own family), we must be careful never to slip into resentment- especially not resentment of one’s own family; the closest thing to an extension of one’s self that exists in this world.

That was what got us into this mess in the first place.

We live in an age where our leaders have failed.

We live in the age where those good souls who should have authority hand it to those who simply desire power.

We live in an age where the law no longer represents the authority of Divine Order, but rather serves to uphold the power of mercantilism, usury and materialism.

We live in an age where our governments are no longer legitimate.

We live in an age where it would perhaps serve us best to reside in a world operating in a state of tribal anarchism, rather than to be ruled as slaves to false and decaying institutions.

WHO IS MY “NEIGHBOR”?

“Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.  This is the first great commandment.  And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.”

Matthew 22:37-39

4c8cbfef-3ea3-43e9-a658-25563b47c62d.jpg

The above quote is one of the most oft-quoted verses from the Bible.  I would also argue that it’s one of the most abused, duping millions of good-hearted people into giving time, energy and resources to people on the other side of the world, while many in their own nations are homeless and starving.

In this day and age, the idea of “love thy neighbor as thyself” has been espoused by many to mean that followers of the teachings of the man known as Jesus should be expected to view every human being on Earth as their “neighbors”.   Furthermore, many preach that in this context, these “neighbors” deserve whatever charity we can muster.

But is this really what was being implied in the above passage?

First, let’s look at a basic definition of the word “neighbor”:

  1. Somebody who lives or is located very close by, for example, on the same street or in the same town
  2. A person, place, or thing located next to another or very nearby
  3. A fellow citizen

So for the first two primary definitions, the idea of a “spatial” definition or proximity is given.  A neighbor is understood to be someone who lives near you- not on the other side of the world.

The last definition, a “fellow citizen” expands this concept.  A citizen is a member of an established group of people that have taken up a common agreed upon identity.  While they may be “individuals”, they share a common set of ideals, values, morals and goals that supersede any individual differences they may have among them.  This is group identity.  To be of service to one who shares your overarching group identity is to be of service to yourself as well.

Now, that we’ve established a basic definition, we should take a moment to look at where this commandment has its origins, which was way back in the Old Testament; Leviticus to be precise.  And if you haven’t read Leviticus, it’s a painfully laborious read.  It pretty much entails the Hebrew God, YHVH telling Moses and Aaron what the Israelites should and should not do- and what will happen if they screw up.

Leviticus is where “the Law” is first given to Moses, who in turn gave it to the recently liberated Israelites (which YHVH reminds them of every other breath).  Leviticus is also where we first hear the “love thy neighbor” commandment, when in Leviticus 19:18, YHVH tells Moses, “Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself”.

I placed emphasis on “thy” to highlight the correlation between the understanding of a “neighbor” as someone who was part of the tribe- in this case the united tribe of the Israelites.  They were most certainly not referring to every human being on Earth- be it as it was known then or as it is with our expanded “global awareness”.

Now some argue that this included the “strangers” or “aliens” (depending on what version of the Bible you have) that traveled with the Israelites.  Leviticus 25:35 speaks on charity for these “strangers”:

And if thy brother be waxen poor, and fallen in decay with thee; then thou shalt relieve him: yea though he be a stranger, or a sojourner; that he may live with thee.

Now, that sounds like an obligation to take “strangers” into one’s home (or town, or city, or nation).  But it should be noted that these “strangers” were understood to be people that lived and traveled with the Israelites, which means they were allowed in.

Now, without even going into how “God” proceeds to talk about the proper way of putting such folks into indentured servitude, etc. a few paragraphs down, what really should be understood was YHVH’s expectations of these “strangers”.  This was articulated in Leviticus 18:26 before he started talking about being all nice and stuff:

Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgements, and shall not keep any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you

So as the Israelites migrated out of Egypt, there were others that migrated with them who had either a relationship of partnership/alliance or a relationship of servitude with the tribe.  Regardless of status, YHVH made one thing abundantly clear- everyone under his watch and protection, had to follow his rules.  This included not only the Israelites, but those that traveled with them in any capacity.  Everyone here was bound by the covenant with YHVH- Israelite or not.

This goes back to the definition of “neighbor” we looked at earlier as not only someone who lives in close proximity, but someone who shares a basic code of ethics and a common goal (they were all looking for the “Promised Land”).  It could even be argued that the latter definition is really far more important than the former.

Many people don’t seem to realize that Jesus quoted heavily from the Old Testament, and his “great commandments“, are a reiteration of these Old Testament laws, not a reinterpretation.

In other words, Jesus was not talking about everyone– far from it.  Remember, Jesus said himself:

I was sent only to the lost sheep of the House of Israel.”

It has always been a universal that “birds of a feather flock together”.  I remember canvassing and quickly noting the phenomenon of neighborhoods by and large having a certain group consciousness.  You always had neighborhoods that were more receptive than others.  This wasn’t by coincidence.  This is based on the idea that people when left to their own devices, will choose to live among people that are similar to them ideologically (as well as ethnically).

However, in this troubled time of forced integration, the concept of “neighbor” is being redefined into something it never meant.  While all people share the phenomenon of human consciousness, human experience and the Divine Self, they do not share experience and values.  The idea that there is some universally understood set of moral values that is prevalent among all peoples is complete falsehood.

A “neighbor” is someone who lives in proximity to you that at least on some fundamental level shares a common set of values and identity to you.  It is not someone who simply shares the Earth with you.  Sadly though, in our urbanized, isolated, multicultural world, the neighbor who shares the same apartment complex might be just as distant- just not geographically.  Diversity has ruined much of the cohesion, trust and sense of community that used to exist in these places.

In this age of globalism and mass migration, we are taught that we are “all one”.  I am not going to get into the details of the philosophy behind this, as I have already done so multiple times.  But this imposed perspective of creating a world that is best for corporate globalism, has caused a bit of an obfuscation of the whole notion of “love thy neighbor” among a great many people.

The “global community” or “global village” is a hollow abstraction created by Neoliberal ideologues to justify the endless pillaging of the globe as something that “brings us together“.  This is utter nonsense that far too many people take to be gospel.

Prince Bandar of Saudi Arabia is not my neighbor- and I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t consider me his.

Love your REAL neighbors.

IDEOLOGY

“Everything is ideological.

  • Jonathan Bowden

sutanto_final

(art courtesey https://shutter79studio.wordpress.com/2010/09/27/my-ideology-of-l-a/)

The word “ideology” was originally coined by French enlightenment aristocrat, Antoine Destutt de Tracy, who originally conceived it as “the science of ideas“.

The etymology of the word means a “form” or “pattern” of “logos“.

In modern terminology, ideology refers to “a collection of normative beliefs and values that an individual or group holds for other than purely epistemic reasons.”

In the modern world, any ideology that is not superficial and hyper-malleable is looked upon with suspicion.  When an ideology becomes unmovable by the Corporate State, or does not suit its purposes, it becomes dangerous.

Man is inherently tribal in nature and forms the strongest bonds with others to work for some kind of collective mission that is quite often centered around some form of collective ideology.

Ideology is the ideas and manner of thinking of a group, class or individual. Morality could be seen as ideological. Particularly when said morality is not universal. For example, much of the moral ideology of the West is not shared by much of Eurasia.

As the universe is mental in nature, ideology becomes the way in which consciousness takes form in a collective manner.

It is substance of the ideology and the maturity and moral character of the people that hold it that is the problem with ideology; not that ideology exists in the first place, or even that some appear to conflict.

Problems occur when people of severely conflicting ideologies attempt to/are forced to live among one another, when they probably shouldn’t.

There has not always been this “culture of the masses” that saturates everything, where the need to sway  to go along with certain social-political ideologies. Hence you have a degraded, dumbed-down, hyper-emotional conversation around everything, because of a perceived need to appeal to the lowest common denominator so the masses get on board.

I am certainly all about disregarding any sort of “mass narratives” specifically designed to whip the masses into hysteria. But as ideology is the ideas and manner of thinking of a group, class or individual, I’m not sure having ideology of some kind or another can really be avoided without becoming a total relativist and/or an inactive nihilist (which is also a form of ideology).

Groups of people working together long term are going to form a “group mind” if they are cohesive. This cannot be avoided nor should it. Ideology of some kind or another is what gives the foundation for any spiritual community. So technically, the priesthood has always been rooted in some type of ideology, as the priest needs to serve the community he is in.

Patriotism, Democracy and Social Justice are all ideologies as they all stem from the values and beliefs of particular groups of people.

An ideology seeks to shape the world around it in some way. As the universe is mental in nature, ideology becomes the way in which consciousness takes form in a collective manner and acts upon the world.

But when ideologies are debased and not grounded in Nature and the Divine, they are ultimately erroneous and harmful. Issues can occur due to the substance of the ideology, the maturity and moral character of the people that hold it.

Ideologies can be rigid or flexible; constructive or destructive.

May the ideologies we hold serve the Highest Good of spirit, folk and freedom.

Our folk, along with the people of Finda and Lyda (the Amerasiatic and Negroid races, and their offshoots) are in a continual and cyclical process of unfoldment; of becoming. 

This is also true for us at the level of the individual as well.

However, like the chick in the egg or the caterpillar in the cocoon, we must take care that our process of spiritual becoming is protected- particularly when it is in its infancy; when it is at its most vulnerable to corrupting influences.

Let us nurture and protect the seed of our spiritual becoming so it can blossom into the brilliance of spiritual maturity.

gloablism

In a recent conference entitled “The Art of Happiness and Peace” held in Malmö, Sweden, beloved Tibetan religious leader, the Dalai Lama stated in regards to the current migrant crisis gripping Europe that “Europe belongs to the Europeans,” and that refugees should ultimately return home to “rebuild their own country“.

This is a man who is genuinely regarded as one of the most “spiritually evolved” human beings on the planet ultimately advocating the principles of nationalism.

Let that sink in.

In recent years it would seem that nearly every religious and spiritual leader in the progressive mainstream have held publicly lauded the “virtues” of multiculturalism, whilst simultaneously condemning nationalism as essentially being ‘spiritually backward‘.

Of course, I disagree with that. But apparently so does the Dali Lama… and Ken Wilber.

Long before he introduced me to Ron Paul, Alex Jones and the 9-11 truth movement, my old sensei introduced me to the Integral philosophy of Ken Wilber – a philosophy which takes on the Herculean task of seeking to integrate ALL areas of human knowledge, experience and wisdom.

Some may be familiar with Wilber and may scoff at my devoting an article to his perspective, being that he has very much couched himself with the commercial “New Age” movement, and has been endorsed by Bill Clinton, Al Gore and Deepak Chopra.

And then there was his (and the entire Integral community’s) unfortunate alignment with and defense of Rabbi Marc Gafni, a former Orthodox Rabbi-turned-Integralist who was indicted in Israel for child molestation..

However, like Wilber, I believe in utilizing what’s RIGHT with someone’s philosophy, rather than focus on what’s wrong with it- or them.

In his book, “A Brief History of Everything“- a book that essentially launched the “Integral Movement“, Wilber outlines the core model of Integral Philosophy in which an individual moves up through a scale of what Wiber describes as increasingly deeper, more holistic modes of consciousness. Beginning with the archaic/egocentric mode of consciousness at birth, the individual moves ideally moves up through egocentric, ethnocentric, worldcentric, kosmocentric, and “transpersonal” modes of consciousness as they develop and evolve spiritually- ultimately moving towards greater capacity for love, care and concern for others.

more_perspectives_more_love_chart

Wilber seems to pair each “mode” with the corresponding Chakra color that he feels represents where this consciousness lies in the person, starting with the archaic/egocentric at the Root Chakra, which corresponds with base-level consciousness; all the way to the Crown, which corresponds with the ascendant transpersonal. Every time a new level of consciousness is reached by the individual, they come to what Wilber refers to as a “fulcrum“.

One of these ascending levels of consciousness, as already mentioned, is what Wilber refers to as “worldcentric consciousness“. Here, Wiber describes the transition of an individual from ethnocentric/sociocentric to worldcentric consciousness:

You start out.. in fusion with the conventional roles and rules- you are identified with them, merged with them (and thus utterly at their mercy, a true conformist). Then you begin to differentiate or transcend them, gain some freedom from them, and move to the next higher stage.. whereupon you will sill have to integrate these social roles… But you have in general moved away from, or differentiated from, and exclusive identity with your sociocentric roles, and you particularly begin to scrutinize the rightness or appropriateness of your sociocentric or ethnocentric perspectives, which previously you would not- and could not- even question.

In short, you have gone from sociocentric to worldcentric. Another decline in narcissism. Another decentering, another transcendence. You want to know what is right and fair, not just for your people, but for all peoples. You take a postconventional or global or worldcentric stance. (And just as important, you are getting very close to a genuinely spiritual or transpersonal opening)

But while Wiber does attempt to loosely correlate these scales of ascending forms of consciousness with epochs in mainline linear history (IMO a mistake for multiple reasons), he makes sure to double down when asked (the book is in the form of an interview between Wiber and an unnamed interviewer) about socio-political movements and ideologies like multiculturalism. Wilber makes quite clear what I have been saying for some time, in that the ideals of the “multicults” require a degree of psychospiritual ascendancy and mastery that almost no one on Earth has achieved- and this creates problems:

Multiculturalism does indeed emphasize cultural diversity and universal tolerance. But this fulcrum-5 stance is a very rare and very elite and very difficult accomplishment..

Now you yourself might indeed have evolved from egocentric to ethnocentric to worldcentric perspectives, and so you will easily understand that all individuals are to be accorded equal consideration and equal opportunity, regardless of race, sex, or creed. The problem is, most individuals that you treat with universal coverage do not share your universalism. They are still egocentric or ethnocentric to the core. So you are extending universal consideration to individuals who will absolutely not extend the same courtesy to you…

Multiculturalism does embrace the very noble drive to treat individuals equally and fairly, from a decentered and worldcentric perspective- everybody is equal in that sense- but then it confuses that high stance with the fact that getting to that high stance is a very rare accomplishment. It ignores the getting there, the developmental process that allowed it to embrace universal pluralism in the first place. So it then extends the results of the development to individuals who have not gotten to that stance themselves, and who are therefore willing to take your nice universal pluralistic stance and wipe their shoes all over it.

The statement above was originally published in 1996, but perfectly describes the crisis of migration into the West today, where we see incredibly tribal groups of people from the developing world migrating to the West, en masse, expressing an entitled indifference and even hostility towards the host populations who have been indoctrinated in such a way that their own altruistic nature is taken to the extremes of mental pathology.

Retired California State Long Beach psychology professor, Dr. Kevin MacDonald stated that Europeans; people of Northern and Western European descent specifically, had a tendency towards what is referred to as “pathological altruism”; where the altruistic tendencies in an individual or group is taken to such an extreme that it causes them harm.

Back to Ken Wiber and “A Brief History of Everything“. Wilber goes on to speak about the internal crisis of these “multicults” as he calls them, and the problems caused by attempts to impose this “worldcentric” stance of equality onto others who are not at that point:

Since their official stance is that elitism of any sort is bad, but since their actual self is an elite self, then they must lie about their actual self- they must conceal, distort, deceive…

All this is doing is contributing to the retribalization of America, by encouraging every egocentric and ethnocentric fragmentation and grievance politics, the politics of narcissism.

What Wiber is describing as “worldcentric” consciousness is essentially that which is able to comprehend at a deep level the interconnectedness of life and the fact that we are all creations of the ONE. This is reaching towards what would have been the perspective of a figure like Christ Jesus or perhaps some of the great sages and ascetics that have lived throughout history.

But comparing figures like this to those that are throwing tantrums on college campuses and neurotically screaming in the streets about “racism” and “Nazis” is comparing, to quote Tuhon Tom Kier,apples and a**holes“.

I would argue that many, if not most, of the people who espouse to these ideals publicly are knowingly or unknowingly holding this elite status fraudulently, which is why it comes out distorted.

If this is indeed a spiritual aristocracy, as Wilber is essentially saying it is, then the person who holds this elite status must have the purified vessel to receive it. If they do not, they can only maintain their power through deception and force.

This lack of rightful authority granted through achieving a state of spiritual aristocracy is why the left must shout down and silence ideological opponents. It is why governments and media in the West (especially in Europe) must perpetuate in endless campaigns of obfuscation and deception, while simultaneously passing “hate speech” laws to silence any dissent- all to cover up the glaring reality multiculturalism IS NOT WORKING.

The oligarchs in ever-loosening control of the West know that multiculturalism doesn’t work. There will ALWAYS be a dominant culture in any region. This is why organic traditional culture has been snuffed out and/or demonized from all angles, and replaced by an empty, vapid, materialistic consumer monoculture. The premise of “multiculturalism” that multiple groups of differing ethnicities, values and beliefs can equally share power in a single society is absolute nonsense and has never actually happened anywhere in history.

Multiculturalism is a lie.

Unfortunately, the average true believer on the street fails to realize how disingenuous the whole thing is, blindly parroting slogans and shouting down anyone they perceive to be “racists”, “bigots”, “xenophobes” and “Nazis”- i.e. anyone who disagrees with the religion of multiculturalism.

RefugeesWelcomeElbonita_13

But again, most of these people are not operating from a perspective forged through deep spiritual insight that can only be gained through a life of asceticism, but rather from the messages and beliefs that they came upon through Pavlovian conditioning and media saturation.

This is not the same thing.

Seeing that all humans are conscious expressions of the same Divine Source, having that same Light within, is NOT the same as saying that all humans, “warts and all“, are essentially the same and as such, should all cohabit the same spaces. One must make some serious leaps and bounds of logic to arrive at this conclusion; a conclusion I sadly see rather frequently among well-meaning spiritual seekers.

The true scope of human diversity in the form of the 7+billion people there are on Earth is so vast that the average human mind can’t even begin to perceive without resorting to the use of the most vague and detached sorts of (mis)conceptions and the most superficial and sentimental sorts of caricatures- informed primarily through the lens of corporate-government schooling and Hollywood media as opposed to any genuine spiritual insight or guidance.

This is why the openly-admitted premise for globalization and multiculturalism centers around maintaining and bringing more people into “the global economy“; the Antichrist system that is the true god of this world.

Multiculturalism is not about having a spiritual awareness that recognizes ALL as part of the ONE. It never has been.

Multiculturalism is about building the world of Antichrist.

Period.

Which is why it’s falling apart..

Caring about the world means being practical, taking care of your people and your land first, while keeping a bigger picture in mind.

It’s thinking “globally” while acting locally and tribally/folkishly– and having the ability to understand that these things are NOT contradictory if we have the eyes to see.

THE ALL IN ALL

“WRALDA is all in all, for he is eternal and everlasting.”

  • The Writings of Adelbrost and Appolonia

Blood and soil

WRALDA is THE ALL IN ALL because ALL things that exist are contained within Him.

Rather than being some imaginary man in the clouds, He is the Universe we live in and experience our lives- the totality of existence.

He is the ONE in whom we live and move and have our being.

He is the ONE who sings the world into existence through the vibration of light and sound- the Ground from which all that is known and unknown comes into existence.

He is the LIFE that surrounds and vitalizes us.

But He is also the personal LIGHT that lives within us.

That part of us which can never die.

The Eternal I AM that is the Eternal Light of Creation.

CHARIOT OF THE ETHNOS

 “Good fences make good neighbors.”

  • Folk proverb

britanos

“The Lord said to Joshua, ‘See, I have given Jericho into your hand… You shall march around the city, all the men of war circling the city once.  You shall do so for six days.  Also seven priests shall carry seven trumpets of rams’ horns before the ark; then on the seventh day you shall march around the city seven times, and the priests shall blow the trumpets… and when you hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city will fall down flat, and the people will go up every man straight ahead.”

When I was ordained into the Order several years ago, this passage from the Old Testament; Joshua 6:2-5, was read to me, as “life guidance“.  I have had varied feelings about the Old Testament (and the Bible as a whole) at various times in my life, and I found it considerably more difficult to read and comprehend than the New Testament, so I was somewhat perplexed by this passage.

There has been a complete inability to find any historical remains or evidence of a historical Jericho- so I wouldn’t find any answers there.  An interesting aside is that the name “Jericho” itself means “City of the Moon“, so if there is a historical narrative to this story, it could have to do with the destruction of rival Moon/goddess cults that very well may have existed and had power in ancient Canaan.

Was it something to do with walls or bringing down walls?  Did it have to do with the role of Joshua in the story?  Was it about what the priests did?

In the story of Joshua, the external moral or “exoteric” interpretation typically has to do with obeying God’s directives (Natural Law) and having faith in the ability of God to make the seemingly impossible happen.  Meanwhile the internal spiritual or “esoteric” interpretation tends to be seen as the awakening of the seven psycho-spiritual energy centers (Chakras), and the breaking down the “walls” of the mind/psyche- allowing a full integration of the human Self, and the experience of Christ Consciousness.

Obsessed with wanting to make sure I knew the right answer, I asked a couple of the priests in the Order about this.  To my surprise I was told that it wasn’t really about the story at all, but rather that it had to do with the number seven and Cheth, i.e. “The Chariot“- the seventh card within the Major Arcana of the Tarot.

Cheth is also represented by the sign of Cancer- my birth sign.

And while my association with the Order has become estranged due to my sociopolitical and metapolitical stances, I do still find myself contemplating these experiences surrounding my time with them, my own spiritual journey, and how any of that can be of use to my people and humanity as a whole.

Now, this is not going to be a study on the Tarot or the Book of Joshua for that matter.  Rather I want to look at the meaning of the word “Cheth” itself, and how that meaning relates to the question that I have become obsessed with:

How do we integrate the natural human drive towards tribalism and the need for ethnic identity, with the “worldcentric” perspective that is manifesting as humanity as a whole evolves towards Absolute Spirit, which encompasses, transcends, and ultimately, is, ALL things?’

In other words, how do we as a collective humanity stay rooted and grounded while reaching toward godhood, so we do not spin off into ego, delusion, and ultimately self-destruction?

Because this is what I see when I see well-meaning spiritual seekers and even adepts, who have on some level, this sense of the true interconnectedness of all humans and all things- which IS a reality (despite its misappropriation); and I see these folks putting their energy, focus and even prayers into supporting this Antichrist system of globalism, which seeks ultimately to wrench out the spirit of man and turn him into an automaton.  This, as is see it, is our biggest “global crisis”.   This spiritual crisis this destructive entity known as “modernity” imposed when it sucked out the meaning and life from everything around it.  It effects ALL humans.

So, back to Cheth.  The word “Cheth” comes from the Hebrew word “Heth“, which literally means “enclosure“.  Cheth is also often said to mean “fenced field“.  In the book, “Jewels of the Wise“, a book on the Tarot written by Reverend Mother Helen Blighton, one of the founding figures of the Order, she states:

“A fence is built around a house or field to establish its rightful boundary lines and to permit intensive cultivation therein.  Similarly one builds the atmosphere around his own body as far out as his personal influence extends.  Within any ‘fenced’ area of influence, one plants or builds that which he wishes to produce for the good of himself or others.  Cheth’s work also encloses and protects the walled city behind him- a multiplication of the efforts of the Magician, who built the first house.

All fences are temporary, artificial boundary lines, for land extends undivided beneath them as it always did before they were built, and always will when they are gone.  The very nature of a fence necessitates that one day all must be broken down in order to do away with the false notion of separateness, and so that we may recognize and unite with the One God.  The temporary fence makes possible some specialization, as in gardening, and helps keep out alien influences while the crop is tended and its growth nurtured along.”

On a personal level, Cheth is about keeping out negative and potentially harmful influences that can stunt one’s spiritual growth.  We remove ourselves from those things and people that bring us away from doing the internal work necessary to prepare the vessel for spiritual evolution.

It is quite obvious that worldwide, humanity has A LOT of inner work to do- and there is no way such intensive work can be done en masse.  We need specialization.  We need focus.  This can only be done in an environment free of the excessive conflict, mistrust, isolation and chaos that ultra-diverse cosmopolitan societies foster.

We need to be honest with ourselves that this isn’t working and re-organize.

Due to the worldwide effects of modernity, coupled with the general side-effects of the “devolution” of man down through the denser planes (from which he is now just beginning to ascend), it would seem that what Russian philosopher Alexander Dugin refers to as “the Ethnos” of nearly all peoples has been fragmented and weakened infected with some form or another of “psychic disease” or “psychospiritual sickness“, which infects not only the individual, but also the culture and the society.

The term “Ethnos” stems from Greek meaning a nation, but not in the modern sense of the word, but rather the nation as the ethnic group that shares a common heritage, language, and culture.  It is through the unique constitution of a people in conjunction with their surroundings which is understood by many to form the basis of indigenous spirituality.

DhWMlGVX0AA3Fbc.jpg large

I would interpret the Ethnos as the Folk Soul or Consciousness through which the original organic spiritual transmission for that particular people entered into them and evolved through them.  It is this necessary-by-nature component of human spirituality and human life that has been wrenched out of us at every opportunity by modernity and universalist empire.

It has always been in the interest of Empire to destroy the Ethnos, which was in ancient times, one and the same as their religion.  It was the connection to their ancestors and their unique spiritual transmission as a people.  In other words, the Ethnos could be seen as the “chariot” that carried the Eternal Flame of the Heavenly Soul/Self and imparted its wisdom to a people that existed and functioned here on Earth.

Traditional Indo-European (and perhaps Old European/Fryan) understanding was that there were three parts of the soul: that part which was uniquely derived from the individual; that part which was derived from the Ethnos; and that part which was derived purely of the Divine Logos.

Modern religion and spirituality in the West, both mainstream and “New Age”, COMPLETELY ignores the spiritual component of man relating to the Ethnos, only seeing a dichotomy between the individual ego and the Divine.  The third party of the Ethnos, is typically only referred to in a degraded sense when listing the “illusions” created by our ego that we must overcome in order to attain enlightenment, salvation, etc.

Without spiritual sustenance,and a society and culture rooted in adherence to Laws of Nature and Creation, a person; a people will become sick, and as a result, their cultures and societies will become corrupt and perverse.  The Ethnos, which is the archetypal foundation of “Nationalism”, is a function of Nature- and we ignore it at our own expense.

What is happening now with this age of commercial globalization and the mass migration which tends to be the result, is that we have an intermingling of a wide array of psychic viruses begin brought into a mass society that is designed to feed, rather than fight them.

We see a similar phenomena playing out in the physical world with the spread of various types of exotic diseases into the west- many of which had been eradicated of never seen.  Evidence shows strong correlations to this rise of communicable diseases into the west correlating with the current migrant crisis in Europe as well as with illegal immigration in the U.S.

Nearly all cultures have become sick and diseased with the one-two-punch of descending into the Kali Yuga and being ensnared by modernity.  As a result, the people have become sick as well.  Therefore, this would rightly be more of a time of quarantine; or at least a general “turning inward” of peoples in order to fully integrate themselves as a people into the truth of Spirit and Nature; allowing them to become the most spiritually evolved versions of themselves they can be.

This should happen before any sort of mass integration of humanity occurs.  However, at the present it seems that there is a consorted effort to create a global monosociety that as a whole; as any honest, holistic assessment of the data would confirm; humanity is not ready to live in.  Hence why the “global village” is an oppressive global re-colonization project spearheaded by international finance, rather than the utopian village of human peace and solidarity dreamed of by New Agers and Trotskyites.

gloablism

In The Oera Linda Book, there is a great emphasis put on the importance of societal and cultural morals- and the need to be on guard against potentially corrupting alien influences, which the Fryan law did not allow in any way.  The Folk Mothers knew of the “foul festivals” of the priests and the culture of the “slave peoples”.

The Mothers understood if these ideologies and cultures were allowed to take root in the minds and wombs of the Fryan people, then their freedom would be lost.

And that is what has happened.

While we have seen glimmers of a reemergence of true freedom within our greater folk, with societies such as Ukraine under the Cossacks and America under the Articles of Confederation; we have as a people, allowed ourselves to buy into the idea that freedom is simply satisfying our ego-driven self-interest and our irrational desires.

And now we are told that we need to become “one” will all of the peoples of the world, so that they to may adopt Americanism- the artificial culture of selfishness and desire that seeks to make the entire world like unto it.

This is not freedom.

This is not brotherhood.

This is not functional.

This is not real.

Right now, we need to find some way to contain the diseased cultures of man (including our own), so the mental and ultimately, spiritual sickness created within them as a result of modernity and “The Fall” (the descent of humanity into dense matter), can be healed and the trauma integrated, allowing for a reconnection to our primal Ethnos.

We need to re-group, re-organize, and re-strategize our societies and our cultures in a way that suits who we are and what we are to become at our greatest in WR-ALDA’S Glory.  We will harmonize our culture, our society and our lives according to Truth and the Laws of Nature and Creation; the Laws of WR-ALDA.

The notion that ethnic and tribal identity is part and parcel with hatred, destruction and death is false.  In the last 400 years since what could be seen as the beginnings of modernity and the globalist project, the Earth and all manner of life on it (including ourselves) have experienced man-made destruction and decay on a level hitherto unfathomable in the previous millennia.

We are currently seeing a complete re-terraforming of the Earth into something that will not be fit for anything organic.

And this has all been under the watch of our “enlightened” cosmopolitan merchant elites who through bribe, blackmail, and murder wrested the power of law away from the monarchy, used that power to enslave us, told us we were free because we didn’t have a monarch anymore.

This is the same “enlightened” cosmopolitan elite that later told us that Nationalism, which is about protecting the sovereignty of a people first and foremost; and also relates directly to the autocrat/monarch; is akin to stepping back into the primordial ooze and is ultimately a morally unacceptable stance.

But it does not mean you hate a man when you feed and clothe your family instead of his.  And it does not mean you hate another group by focusing on the health and well-being of your own.

It does not mean you hate the homeless guy on the street because you don’t allow him to come into your home and help himself to whatever he wants, whenever he wants.  It does not mean you hate economic migrants that (understandably) wish to do the same on a large scale.

A solid psychic “container” is necessary for deep psychospiritual work within a group, and a solid container requires trust and a common “mission“, to quote Master Chim.  These commonalities and shared experiences; this fellowship facilitates both healing and growth in the individual and the group.  These are all qualities that atomized, hyper-individualistic, hyper-diverse, cosmopolitan societies of modernity do not and cannot have, thus rendering them relatively incapable of facilitating any sort real meaning or purpose, and thus authentic spiritual growth stymies and falls flat.

In his book “Ethnos and Society“, Alexander Dugin states, as paraphrased by Alexander Markovics, that “Nationalism is herein only a mean to prevent the individualistic society from collapse, until it’s individuals are enlightened enough to leave the nation state behind as the artificial construct it is and integrate all nations into a global civil society.

Such a world was prophesied by Dela Hellenia and recorded in The Oera Linda Book:

But when the (false) priests think that they have entirely extinguished the Light of Frya and Jesus, then shall all classes of men rise up who have quietly preserved the truth among themselves…

Finda’s folk shall contribute their industry to the common good, Lyda’s folk their strength, we our wisdom.  Then the false priests shall shall be swept from the Earth.  WRALDA’S Spirit shall be invoked everywhere and always; the Laws that WRALDA instilled into our consciences in the beginning shall alone be listened to.  There shall be neither masters, nor rulers, nor bosses, except those chosen by the general voice.  Then Frya shall rejoice, and the Earth will only bestow her gifts on those who work.  All this shall begin 4000 years after the submersion of Atland, and 1000 years later there shall exist no longer either priest or oppression.

The fence comes down eventually.  But we need to get to that point first..

Until then, we should be mending those fences, being good to our neighbors, and loving our people.  Let’s get our house in order before we invite company.

In closing, I leave you with a meditation on Cheth, from the book “Tarot Meditations” published by The Science of Man:

Cheth am I, the Fenced Enclosure

Standing as an atmospheric shell

To protect the inner growing Light of Self.

I fend of interference from without

Until Its splendor is full-grown,

Till it bursts forth, removing walls,

And starts to light the Way.

The victory I have won is conquest of the mind,

Which brings all Nature’s Mysteries

To initiates who are able to remain

Perceptive as a chalice to the Will of God.

WR-ALDA’S Blessings unto you and yours.

Christ Jesus said, “Love thy neighbor as thyself”.

We should strive to be kind and helpful to those around us and to those connected to us.  In serving them, we serve our own spiritual growth and evolution.

Service allows us to get out of ourselves- our own selfish desires and unproductive mental chatter; allowing us to reach towards the Higher.

Let us seek opportunities to be of service to those around us in our neighborhood, in our community, and most importantly, to those that are connected to us by blood or bond.

DENMARK!

“In Denmark, there is a very different understanding of what ‘freedom’ means… they have gone a long way to ending the enormous anxieties that comes with economic insecurity.”

– Sen. Bernie Sanders

Denmark has become a talking point on what I would call, “the Fox News Right”, because it has long been touted by the democrats and the general left, as this sort of “socialist paradise”- and that if America would just adopt a similar program, everyone would be happy.

Personally, I have been hearing about this Scandinavian “socialist utopia” since my days of campaigning for universal/single payer healthcare i.e., “Medicare for all” about a decade ago.  And of course, it came to prominence most recently with Bernie Sanders mentioning it during the 2015/2016 Presidential race- and continuing to do so.

So, the pretty Fox News teleprompter reader rattles off some fluff about economics in two vastly different countries, ultimately looking to “convince” the audience that socialism won’t work in America because of these other making the argument almost exclusively about socialism supposedly making people lazy and un-industrious; and hence, why it is bad and why it would be bad for America. Then the Danish politician refutes her very poorly constructed argument, and once again vindicates Danish socialism for starry-eyed Americans that dream of it being implemented here.

The problem is that the REAL reason why Danish “socialism”, or anything of the sort, would not work in America is NEVER addressed.

In a 2006 article out of the Migration Policy Institute (an organization funded by the Carnegie Endowment) entitled, “Denmark: Integrating Immigrants into a Homogeneous Welfare State“, the author states how in Denmark, “the welfare state was designed on the basis of a culturally similar citizenry, and the Danish economy has successfully adapted to a variety of international challenges by taking advantage of institutions built around a powerful sense of civic solidarity.”

Another interesting point comes from a 2017 article out of Business Insider on Danish immigration (Denmark having some of the more strict immigration laws in western Europe), where Danish Finance Minister Kristian Jensen is quoted stating:

Roughly speaking, immigration from western countries helps government finances while immigration from non-westerners imposes costs..

In other words, on average, people who migrate from countries with populations more like them are a boon to their country; while people who migrate from countries with populations less like them, will tend to be more of a drain.

It isn’t rocket science.

But apparently it’s “racist”.

I’ve said this before, and I’ll probably say it again, the real reason this Denmark-style socialism that everyone is praising wouldn’t work in the United States because we are NOT a culturally similar citizenry and we probably have less civic solidarity then we’ve ever had.

volk

Socialism is based on providing for the common good.  The common good is a consensus among a particular group of people in a particular place about what is right and good for their society to survive and thrive.  This ultimately originates with the “ethnos“- the universe of shared meaning that a people has, which is rooted in its language, culture and traditions.

The more you have multiple languages, cultures and traditions within a society- particularly if these languages, cultures and traditions are incompatibly different or even hostile towards one another; the more difficult, if not impossible, it becomes to agree on a common good.  If no one can agree on a common good, you cannot have socialism or any true variant of it.

Period.

What you will have instead is tyranny and empire.

Most people clamoring for this sort of universal socialism here in America tend to come from one of two camps: those who are motivated by envy, resentment and entitlement; and those who are motivated by the genuine, although often emotion-driven, desire to stop human suffering (both that of others and their own).

It is unfortunate that so many people in this country seem to suffer without things like affordable health coverage or what is considered a “living wage“.  However we need to understand that this is the price of living in a society that is centered around self-interest and the satisfaction of desire.

We need to put our good intentions in the right direction.

The truth is nationalistic socialism can and does work.  As a matter of fact, the most dramatic socio-economic success stories come from social nationalist nations like NSDAP Germany or General Park Chung-Hee’s South Korea.

But internationalist socialism; this notion of being entitled to a nation’s benefits regardless of where you’re from or what you’ve actually contributed to that society; does not.

But modernity is all about taking without giving anything back.

Give back.

Give back to your people.  Whoever they may be.

WR-ALDA’S Blessings unto you and yours.
