The Cleverest Conspiracy Of All


We live in an age of conspiracies and rumours of conspiracies.  Even those who mock and deny their existence feel the need to talk about them in a disparaging manner.  Governments, corporations and intelligence services all thrive on their production, implementation and cover-up.  Educated populations, now mostly freed from the threats of eternal damnation, loosened with ever increasing leisure, and armoured as never before with access to information, demand ever more sophisticated cover-ups and plausible denials delivered with assurance and aplomb.  Children with considerably more than spare change, we now require sophistry on the level of myth, complete with the the panoply of dramatis personae we have come to expect down through the storytelling ages.

Some ancient battle between darkness and light, truth and deception, seems to be continuously reenacted on the world stage.  It is a drama of operatic dimensions that could easily grow a religion or two about it.  Who will save us from the lying demagogues of democracy, the chorus asks.  Who shall deliver us from the seductive pit of propaganda?  The answer is perhaps obvious: us.  Us and only us.  We the people, who are so much more than concerned citizens, but who have forgotten their divine origins and are dwarfed by those who would manipulate our ignorance into endless dependence.  We need not wait for all the Pinocchios to grow long noses.

All the political shenanigans, all the crafted assassinations, all the bombings with their stage managed radicals, all the wars over natural resources spin doctored into evil dragon slaying, all the drugs so carefully designed, all the spiritual wickedness in high places, it’s merely the play of Maya, illusions prancing their hour upon the stage.  It need not detain us, although it can and does, our fascination with baubles and blood being what it is.  But for those of us on our way to graduation, a not insignificant number I might add, the cleverest conspiracy of all is that of the Higher Self.

The Higher Self conspires, unfortunately with our full cooperation, to denude us of all cosmic consciousness, so that our delivery onto the physical plane through the medium of our mother’s womb is accomplished with such a narrowing of the psyche that the phrase blank slate is the most accurate for our tiny embodiment of life.  So although we are emanations from a virtually omniscient Monad (group soul, Higher Self), by the time we descend through the planes to arrive here almost emptied of our previous divinity, and proceed, through many trials and tribulations, to recover our heritage shorn of the illusions of ego and society, we are essentially starting out once again from the basement of consciousness to explore not only the house above but the many mansions which it magically contains.

And we essay these explorations as dim witted but boisterous children, eager for adventure but easily cowed by frights and cuts.  As personalities we grow with our family and society imposed definitions, all of which are useful within the parameters laid out before us, becoming independent and educated adults.  But as spirits in the material world these definitions become ties which keep us in bondage, too timid to explore the unknown and unseen.  And when, out of frustration or giddiness, we do reach out a seeking beam, they remind us to doubt and distrust, to return to the basement where being rendered stupid with safety is the community standard.

In our ignorance as state sanctioned citizens with rights and responsibilities we often remain, assured that we are contributing in an accountable and civilized manner.  But as citizens thus defined we remain ignorant of our greater selves, our original share of divinity, and we quietly assume our tiny spots in history, the subject of forces beyond our control, when in fact we have picked a life path of challenges suited to our needs, and only appear to be buffeted by the fates of disease, lousy weather and political repression.  Whether we have chosen wisely or been rushed by the prospect of thrills is another matter, but the metaphysical fact is that we have picked and are partaking.

But our ego based illusions about our limited and isolated selves conspire to keep us in our place, while attributes such as gravity and debt assure us we have made the smart choice.  Inside our separated selves, our much valued individuality, we look to sources of power outside us.  Whether natural, as in earthquakes or floods, or man made, such as banking or government, we feel dominated, threatened, conspired against, that there is a hidden order which executes plans in the shadows, regardless of our requirements or well being.  There are hidden orders conspiring contemptuously in the shadows, but they operate at the level of ego and ego gratification, and as such, live in even more illusion than yourself, the seeker and would-be disciple of the mysteries.

The cleverest and most cunning conspiracy of them all is the one you delude yourself with, that we all delude ourselves with: that no matter what your station in life, your race or gender, your degree of freedom or repression, you are in essence an unbounded being of light, a conscious contributing emblem of divinity, who is only pretending to be daft and lost and limited.


Souls Sharing One World

When I invoke the One World concept and point to the millions of souls that share it now, knowingly or otherwise, I am considering the ancient plan for mankind, as it proceeds from the babel of envy, distrust, paranoid suspicions and the itch to conquer, through alliances, trading and recognition of shared interests to the economic parity, free cultural exchange and religious ecumenism that will accompany the realization that the brotherhood of all mankind is not only desirable but inevitable.  Not only that it is an idea whose time has come but one that had been waiting in the wings, ever ready to clamber over the rubble of tribalism, nationalism and ruthless ambition and claim center stage for a planet ready as one consciousness to embrace its galactic neighbours in the ongoing game of ignorance evolving to knowing.

As a student and sometimes graduate of what has been called the Western Esoteric Tradition I have come to this understanding in several past lives, most of which occurred in societies which disapproved of such heretical insights and had to be kept completely secret or passed on to initiates behind locked doors, safe from the prying eyes of the power mongers and their spies.  In this current life, an incarnation of incomparable personal freedoms and open channels of communication, I have repeatedly sought to unlock the doors of esoteric secrets to let in the light of mass  education and individual liberty so that the intellectual analytical mode, so common in our post industrial societies, can be merged with the intuitive knowing esoteric teachings are primed to trigger, producing that synthesis of left and right brain activity which characterizes the individual at one with their inner nature.  Individuals who can look and see without the blinkers or filters societies adopt for self preservation.

That we are beings of equal status, rights and potential beyond the boundaries of ethnicity, class and social status is already obvious to a sizable minority currently incarnate.  But that minority needs to be expanded to greater and greater portions of mankind, especially those locked in the mortal combats typical of those bred by competing religions and rival ideologies. Many souls are unwittingly caught up in such conflicts as their pre-birth choices were based mainly in the karma and love bonds of personal relationships and family, nation states and religions coming second, third or even lower in their calculations.  Such souls can be easily manipulated by the more ambitious souls determined to scratch their way to the top of any power structure for the pleasure of issuing orders and having their minions fight their battles for them.

Such souls are shocked to be railroaded into wars not of their own making and would love to be elevated out of the strife, and if not sacrificed on the altar of ideology wind up as battered refugees using any means possible to reach some measure of peace and freedom.  We see that process, riven with drastic measures and sacrifice, all around.  Such souls, from whatever corner of the planet, are ready to hear such esoteric teachings which transcend the dictates of their religions and perceived place on the planet.

These blogs do not, so far, have a very wide reach, but some of my spirit contact videos do, so I proceed with the trust that one will amplify the other, and, taking their place amongst the many spiritual teachings disseminated on the internet, will join in the gradual uplifting of mankind beyond those boundaries of thought laid down by authorities and into those freedoms of spirit enjoyed by those of us who have made the leap and would love to assist others in doing the same.

We are all eternal spirits renting space in physical bodies inextricably bound to space and time with all their furniture of buildings and societies.  It’s just that some of us quit being renters before others.
