A war is raging but few people see it – and even fewer admit that it exists at all. This isn’t a new war but as old as time itself. This perma-conflict never ceases. This is a long-standing spiritual battle played out on the inner planes but regularly erupting into the physical world in usually unpredictable ways.
Some are familiar with this eternal scenario in which the forces of light and darkness constantly clash in their bid to evolve or impede the development of the world. Since Atlantean times authoritarian and anti-evolutionary forces in many guises have stalked the earth and engaged in constant war with their opposites. This underground and internecine war has raged for hundreds of millennia unseen by most until it erupts into physical manifestation in some way.
Few would argue that we are crawling through one of the more threatening and sinister underpasses of the Kali Yuga. Humanity has reached one of its big crisis crunch-points. We perceive the problems as environmental, political, social or economic. But these are the symptoms rather than the causes.
The twenty-first century is shaped and disfigured by the ultra-corrupt politics of a previous era – political and economic systems drawn from both the left and the right. These are now coalescing into a poisonous new anti-life force no longer confined to a single part of the political spectrum but infecting it in its entirety.
A new politics of the soul is urgently required – a politics not shackled to a materialistic paradigm but shaped by life in all its visible and invisible dimensions.
Globalisation purports to open up the possibility of an inter-connected and harmonious world but this is created externally and forced on a humanity which increasingly rejects it. Like many grandiose projects globalisation is a spectacular example of how it has produced entirely the opposite – the vile and terrifying spectre of a humanity reduced to mind-controlled, digitised, consumerist, slavish, medicalised, surveilled, trans-humanised homunculi.
I never miss the opportunity to stress how these Dark Forces display perpetual ingenuity by constantly changing their approach and their tactics. Often initially appearing as saviours or innovators, they are often later unmasked as manipulators or mutilators.
Disharmony and discord crackle through the multiple fractures of the earth’s physical frame as well as its supporting subtle vital bodies. Poisonous vapours envelope the earth in the form of physical pollution, electromagnetic and digital suffocation. The planet’s collective emotional and mental bodies are also disfigured by primitive mind-sets of greed, selfishness and wilful ignorance – values which the powers of darkness mercilessly reinforce and employ in order to divide and rule. We should not be naïve about their potency or power, nor should we shrink away from the fact that their existence is very real – and extremely threatening.
Every day I ponder the same question for which I have inadequate knowledge or the wisdom to answer. Despite interlocking catastrophes and conflicts, epidemics of change and the general rape of the planet, are we still locked into some kind of divine grand-plan? Are things working out just the way they were conceived by higher minds? Or have we been savagely whipped off course? Has this sublime blueprint been subverted from its authentic unfoldment by the remorseless intervention of malign forces who implacably oppose its evolutionary intent?
It is easy to see conspiracies operating everywhere on all levels and they are certainly ubiquitous. Some people believe that virtually everything can be described as such. Conspiracy literally means to ‘breathe together’ but has exclusively sinister connotations. Since the fourteenth century the word has been used as a term for those engaged in ‘uniting, agreeing on or plotting’ nefarious activities. By definition conspiracies are never about anything good. But really there is only a single conspiracy worth discussing – the project to divert humanity from its destiny.
The conundrum is whether dark shadowy forces have gained temporary supremacy over their opposites – those tasked with enlightenment and energy to spiritualise the human race. We are told that these Lords of Darkness periodically gain dominance and ascendancy over human affairs but that this is never permanent. Goodness prevails. Let’s hope this is true because it is all too easy to perceive that at the moment at least, these brothers and sisters of ignorance and fear are winning.
There is no doubt that the world is gripped, enthralled and mesmerised by these influences of the shadow tooled up with their arsenals of glamour and personality enhancement via wealth, status and fame. In a world not infected by this kind of self-indulgent madness no one would ever want to attain celebrity status. In our present world it’s many individuals’ only aspiration. Perhaps we need to regard fame as the ultimate personality disorder.
Could it be that the human project itself is being modified, re-shaped or even derailed by the digitised forces of manipulation attempt to trans-humanise, de-individualise and homogenise us into a mongrelised gruel? Or is everything playing out exactly as it should be? Is the conflict generated by this interplay of opposing energies a vital fuel or essential tool for human evolution? Could it even be the case that we should be grateful for the crises, conflicts, problems and general unrest erupting across the globe and the opportunities they afford us to find solutions?
Another strategic weapon of these shadowy forces is to create and enforce a new age of conformity. Unlike previous suppressions of independent thought under various empires and religions, the present purging of alternative notions now has a global reach, permeating into every nook and cranny via the reinforcement of mainstream mass media, global corporations, politicians and other manipulators of human freedom.
For the first time in history we have created a visible mass mind extending across all continents and countries transcending barriers and borders. This mind is shaped both spiritually and criminally. Not only is it leading to dangerous homogenisation and the abolition of individuality, it may pose a threat to the unfolding of the human spirit itself.
