“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away;”
- The Book of Revelation 21:1
The idea of a future utopian or “Golden Age” is not a new one. It has been around for pretty much all of recorded history and in one way or another informs the doctrine of pretty much every religion. Even in the West during this secular age of humanist materialism, this archetype is very much alive and well in the dreams of those who wish to see all races, colors, and creeds unite in a borderless world without conflict, shouting from the mountaintops the credo: “We are one”.
And, to risk the potential ire of many of my readers, I have to confess that I am not opposed to that. I am not inherently opposed to the idea of a sort of unified super-humanity, where the various races and tribes in their most spiritually evolved state contribute their various gifts, and in essence merge to create one collective being, essentially becoming “one”; even if that means evolving into one homogenous race.
Of course, I should add that I am referring to this happening in a way that is congruent with the Laws of Nature and for the spiritual evolution of mankind. In fact, I personally believe that this is inevitable, as all things return to their root essence eventually.
Most esoteric philosophy understands humanity to have come from a sort of root archetypal “one-ness”, known in Qabbalism as “Adam Kadmon”- the human prototype. Then, according to Theososphy, (which itself draws from much older esoteric traditions), this archetypal humanity divided and evolved into the myriad of sub-races and ethnicities that we know today, as well as many we do not. It was also understood by these esoteric scholars, mystics and clairvoyants that at some point in the distant future, these separated branches of humanity will once again merge into a state of one-ness after its evolution on the plane of Earth is complete.
But this time isn’t now or any time remotely close to it.
Those pushing for mass migration, diversity, multiculturalism, and miscegenation through media, politics, academia and religion are undoubtedly calling upon this incredibly powerful archetype of the future Golden Age of racial unity. However, at this current stage of humanity’s development this is only sowing seeds for great future conflicts- a “Clash of Civilizations”.
With the notable exception of the mainstream cosmopolitan culture that has been ingrained into the societies of Western Europe and the Occident (U.S., Canada, New Zealand, Australia) by its liberal urbanite ruling class; the vast majority of the peoples of the world are still EXTREMELY tribal. Africa still has enormous issues attempting to deal with this fact since they “united” as western-style nation-states and imposed western-style parliamentary governments after World War II. The Middle East is notorious for its tribal wars, particularly among the Sunni and Shi’a branches of Islam. In Latin America we find countless examples of brutal tribal conflicts among the various narco-terrorist organizations that essentially control much of the region.
And while individuals of different races and ethnicities are very much capable of cooperation and harmonious living, it is a basic observable sociological fact that this dynamic changes with the importation of cultural groups en masse. Large groups of culturally alike people will inevitably seek to shape their environment to fit their specific culture. And most cultures are not as egalitarian or eager to accommodate and please “the other” as the liberal White West.
You can have one lion and one lamb lay down peacefully with one another like in an episode of “Unlikely Animal Friends” (one of my favorite TV shows). But if you move a pride of lions in amongst a flock of sheep, the sheep WILL get eaten every time– especially ones that are weak and sickly as is the case with modern Western society.
Of course, not all White Westerners are on board with all this, as evidenced by the backlash coming out of the rural and working-class communities in the last presidential election as well as the surge in ethnically-conscious Identitarianism in Europe. These movements are not head-scratching anomalies as media pundits and “experts” seem to think. Nor is it a “step backward” as so many Baby Boomers and establishment-types are lamenting as their legacy appears to crumble before their very eyes.
No. It is none of that.
What the resurgence of the “tribal” mindset among White Westerners signifies is that the “progress” of the myriad of attempts to impose morality through legislation and indoctrinate the West through operant conditioning via the various media, educational and religious was by and large a castle made of sand. The unified, kum-ba-ya vision of multiculturalism shared by well-meaning liberals and profit-seeking global corporations was an idyllic fantasy that was not grounded in the reality of the world as it is- the reality of the present state of human consciousness.
I think Manly P. Hall put it best when he stated the following in a lecture on the future of humanity:
“In our way of thinking, we are trying to push a way of life that is not mature into tomorrow, so as to make tomorrow the fulfillment of the unfinished experiments of today.”
Perhaps one of greatest errors in all this lies in the fact that the attempt to change the world from as it is, was done almost completely through psychological conditioning and indoctrination. This conditioning was/is imposed by external pressures and for many, the internal voice of neurotic guilt that is often the effect of such conditioning. And even as successful as this technique has been in much of the West, it is not sustainable and as stated earlier, the rest of the world has not gotten on board with this program.
You cannot lift something up to a higher level if you are operating from a lower one.
Even commercial globalization, with its importation and marketing of the superficial monoculture of Hollywood and Madison Avenue have still not managed to get the citizens of the world to drop their more organic cultures altogether and unite over their love of I-phones, fast food, television shows and the global economic system.
In fact, if you listen to talks given on diversity, inclusion and globalization, once you get through the emotion-based marketing pitch, the real bottom line becomes quite obvious. Entrepreneur, TV host and public speaker James Sun put it best in his TED Talk promoting diversity and globalization.
“Marketers want us to be one big group- because it’s cheap.”
Here we find a driver for diversity based in ever-expanding and competing and globalized consumerism- all base level, materialistically-minded incentives. But any honest look at the recklessly-expanding monopolies of globalization shows that it is ultimately an unsustainable system that is equivalent to the snake that devours itself. And while business itself is not inherently bad, when we have come to value material wealth and commerce to such a degree that it becomes the very foundation of our laws and ethics as has happened, we have most certainly strayed long off the path.
The world this is creating is not the “multicultural utopia” of Coke and Nike commercials, but rather a weaponized, Technocratic police state that seeks to “keep the peace” with an iron fist among the various culturally incompatible sects of the population, while the world descends into environmental decay and neo-feudalistic serfdom.
But perhaps this is what we need to wake up.
However, if we choose to see this as a future we’d rather not have for ourselves or our descendants, then perhaps we should consider putting the brakes on all of this and direct our focus on the only thing that really matters- spiritual growth and development, which starts at home.
You cannot genuinely love and accept the other until you genuinely love and accept yourself- ALL OF YOU. What I’m talking about is internal spiritual alignment and syncing with and understanding the Laws of Nature and Creation. This needs to be done individually and culturally.
As I stated earlier, the West and America in particular is culturally sick, and has been for a long time. And to make matters worse, we are inviting incredibly tribal people who are fleeing hardship of one form or another into an increasingly divided house of deracinated lepers. This will do nothing but relieve temporal suffering in exchange for greater suffering in the long term.
We need to heal our culture through creating institutions based in true spiritual development, including the re-institution of psycho-spiritual initiations, REAL education (not schooling), and institutions and economies that work with the Laws of Nature, rather than against them. When this is achieved, then we can discuss “merging” with other cultures if we so choose. But we MUST get our own house in order first.
I believe it will only be when the individual tribes, cultures and races of men are in spiritual alignment with themselves, that any sort of “One World, One Humanity” will be possible without violence and coercion. Or if we have to fight some sort of aliens or something…
Unfortunately, the only way I can see the sort of radical shift in our culture necessary for all this taking place (again, barring invading extraterrestrials) is if we withdraw from the globalized system of usury and mercantilism that underlies every aspect of our lives and dictates the bottom line of nearly every institution in the modern world, rooting out like a cancer- or have it collapse from under us. Either way, this would inevitably create much suffering, but I believe we must think long term here.
The culture of instant gratification has created a desire to be rid of anything that causes us discomfort and pain, be it from our own perceived suffering or someone else’s. But if we truly want to heal the world and bring humanity into a spiritually elevated state, we must bite the bullet and let the discomfort and suffering occur- even if it means people will die. We can’t give what we don’t have, no matter how much we want to.
Evolution is a slow process, but a necessary one. So in closing, I’ll quote Master Po from the old TV show “Kung Fu“:
“Patience grasshopper, patience.”
Namaste and God Bless.
