Belief systems interpreted through philosophy:
Religious Institutions and the New Age are just systems:
Evangelical fundamentalist religion (in the physical and online) and the New Age (physical/online) are just systems, a system that we are attuned too. Both are wavering structures in the collective consciousness of the enlightened, but not in the physical economic global model. The New Age is a relatively new phenomenon, came about through the realization of previous belief that Christianism deviated from what Jesus, the Christ, and originally meant to say. The Bible is undoubtedly been tampered with throughout the centuries. It is self-evident that wrong translations appear from those of the Hebrew and Greek translations to anyone looking at the original manuscripts. The Nag-Hammadi library is available, which contains scriptures (e.g. gospel of Thomas) that are older than canonical gospels. The Dead Seas scrolls were greatly down tuned by the Vatican to keep people's ignorant of the early history of Christianity.
The New Age however, has become a system on itself, this fast-growing institution has become franchised, yoga groups have become like fitness groups. While they like to throw the banner of spirituality and oneness they lost the meaning in which there are parts off. They have become a sub-sect of the Empire (NWO/Globalists/internationalism). The New Age and Christian fundamentalist are under the illusion that they are separated from the controlling system. Both groups have become a factory of memes and programmed mind viruses that are polluting social/video-tube channels.
The new age took shape in the 1950s during the UFO-contactee scene, a group of people believing they were in touch with aliens from other planets by way of trance mediums. (I speculate this was a form of implanted mind-hack in which they impose what they wanted to hear, heliocentric and satellization model dominated a false paradigm therefore that particular truth was revealed, now we know such notion is to be empirically false). During the 50s and 60s an apocalypse was believed to occur, and this would usher in the New Age world. In contemporary times Christian fundamentalist has adopted this apocalyptic end, and so both have been guilty of such fear radon mind impressions/viruses. Through the 70s groups of the New Age suggested not to wait for the New Age dawn and people ought to live as it already happened; by living their lives as though the promised Utopia had arrived, and to persuade others to live life through an alternative process opposite to the status quo. No different from fundamentalist Christians pushing the notion of centralized deity “Christ” is the only way to paradise.
As the New Age expanded it adopted avant-garde scientific thinkers, and became a convergence centre of any imaginable thinkers of alternative thought. The original New Age faded, and became about alternative healing, conspiracies, and hollow earth. Theosophical Society contributed to the current status of the New Age, fusing nineteenth-century occultism with today's alternative healing methods and psychological theories does characterize a great deal of the New Age thinking. (See hollow earth; rejected knowledge; Theosophical Society)
Living your life in harmony with one's ideals can sum up what the New Age is, and within this it's hard not sympathize with the New Age, creating a better world through personal examples is inviting, and is made more difficult when one has been spiritually awakened. Upon this the New Age contributed a lot to the world. In modern times the New age has become a hunting ground for paranoid conspiracy theories, foremost pushers are fundamentalist Evangelical Christians, and people who identify with New Age that changed their minds, which begs the question “where they really awake”? And so are proponents of an online mind-viruses/memes, documentaries and propaganda of an Empire (NWO). I believe there are several players of such an empire hence these conflicting conspiracies. The existence of an Empire is not at question, but the system that pushes and confuses a false truth is.
John Michael Greer author of “The Element Encyclopedia of Secret Societies” describes Christianity origins:
It would take a volume larger than this one to describe all the accounts of Christian origins proposed during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Three in particular, however, require some discussion. The first of these emerged from the rebirth of Gnostic spirituality in the nineteenth century following the establishment of the Eglise Gnostique (Gnostic Church) by Jules Doinel in 1828. Doinel’s followers resurrected the old Gnostic teaching that Jesus had actually been a Gnostic but was redefined by the orthodox churches during the suppression of Gnosticism in the third and fourth centuries CE. By the early twentieth century this idea had become widespread, and came to focus on the revision of Jesus’ teaching by the apostle Paul, whose New Testament writings include most of the elements of Christian theology modern people find objectionable, and who many scholars believe played a central role in defining the version of Christian belief that ended up becoming the orthodox version of the faith.
A second theme entered the field of Christian origins via Theosophy’s belief in Masters, advanced spiritual beings that watch over the course of human evolution. Many Theosophists from Christian backgrounds, searching for compromises between their new beliefs and their cultural heritage, came to see Jesus as one of the Masters, the Master of Compassion, whose teachings had been horribly distorted by the Christian churches of later times. By way of Theosophy’s massive influence on the twentieth-century occult community, this set of beliefs became part of a dizzying range of alternative spiritual systems in the twentieth century. See Masters; Theosophical Society. (Greer, M, J n.d)
Origins of Christianity aside, it's the harmful denominations that should get people worried. There is a grey line between Christian fundamentalist and Christian Identity, which Christian fundamentalist is a spawn off. “John Michael Greer,” further elaborates:
A radical racist movement that broke away from American Protestantism in the middle of the twentieth century, Christian Identity recast many of the dualist themes of classical Gnosticism in a violent new vein. With its call for a race war between whites and so-called “mud people,” the Christian Identity movement launched a number of revolutionary secret societies in 1980s America. See dualism; Gnosticism.
The Christian Identity movement emerged out of British Israelitism, an unlikely nineteenthcentury ideology that argued that the British people were actually one of the lost tribes of Israel. The British Israelite movement spread to the United States and Canada in the last decades of the nineteenth century, where it became a fringe preoccupation of a tiny faction of conservative Protestant sects. During the early twentieth century, a handful of churches in California and British Columbia combined this with the pervasive racism and antisemitism of the time, and ended up claiming they were descended from the ancient Israelites, but that modern Jews were not. See Antisemitism. These views found common cause with another fringe movement in American Protestant Christianity, the “two seeds” theology of Baptist theologian Daniel Parker (1781–1844), who argued that humanity was divided into two bloodlines, an evil bloodline descending from Cain, supposedly fathered on Eve by Satan, and a good bloodline descending from Seth, whose father was Adam. This theory became popular in the South after the American Civil War and was put to use by racist ideologues at the turn of the century, who argued that the children of Seth were white while those of Cain were black.
During the 1950s and 1960s, these ideologies flowed together to form the Christian Identity movement. Wesley Swift (1913–70), the leading theoretician of the movement during its formative years, taught that the “Aryan race” (that is, light-skinned people of European ancestry) were the true Israelites and the children of God, while all other races are animals who happen to look human, and Jews are literally the biological descendants of Satan. To Wesley and his followers, a final battle between Aryans and their racial enemies was about to begin, and white people therefore needed to arm and equip themselves for a race war of extermination. This rhetoric moved from theory to practice in 1983 with the founding of the Bruders Schweigen, a racist secret society that attempted to launch a revolution against ZOG, the so-called “Zionist Occupation Government” of the United States. See Bruders Schweigen; Zionist Occupation Government (ZOG).
The complete failure of the Bruders Schweigen project forced Christian Identity groups to reconsider their plans for racial warfare. The spread of racist paganism and neo-Nazi secret societiesin the last decades of the twentieth century also drew many potential recruits away from the Christian Identity movement. It remains a significant force on the extreme right in America, however, and has substantial overlaps with contemporary neo-Nazi groups and surviving branches of the Ku Klux Klan. See Ku Klux Klan; neo-Nazi secret societies. Further reading: Aho 1990, Barkun 1997, Gardell 1994, Goodrick-Clarke 2002. (Greer, M, J n.d)
Christian fundamentalist and the New Age are part of a program that is the system that has many function one of those being is to highlight normality. Why, I chose this two group systems is because of its relevancy towards truth, and whether you adhere to the program or go your own way. Most go with the program of normality; these could be mainstream commerce, media, law, schools, religion and so forth. All these groups preach the normalization of the system and make you think freedom is the structure of that system, when they are just choices of the menu they set upon you (an illusion of freedom).
What stands outside these central system control figures is philosophy (Gnosis), like Kierkegaard who understood the role of Christian Religion and Institutions. Schopenhauer also knew the distinction, and he used philosophy to make sense of its centralising (controlling) contentions. Schopenhauer ascribes to the distinction between philosophical and religious methods and views the world through philosophy with wonder and astonishment of existence. However, it’s the worst aspects of life and existence for people aspires to philosophy. He states:
“But undoubtedly it is the knowledge of death, and there is the consideration of suffering of life that gives the strongest impulse to philosophical reflection and meta-physical explanation of the world, if our life were without end, and free from pain it would possibly not occur to anyone to ask ‘why the world exist’? ‘And why it does so in precisely this way’? But everything would be taken purely as a matter of course.” (Schopenhauer, n.d)
This verse is timeless, considering the insidious nature of any system based control that constrains transcendental knowing. Christianity is heading towards that one centralized Globalized religion, however, only on the surface in my opinion. I believe the spirit has no association with institutions and thrives in the collective psyche and unconscious. Schopenhauer philosophical verse, however, was written before the birth of the New Age, and the New Age adopts a lot of its doctrines from elsewhere, just like the Borg in Star Trek. Christianity has the same structure, but was more pervasive in how it unfolded; millions of lives were lost and affected by this structure. As a result questions were asked, where philosophy would adhere to answer.
While philosophy adopts rationale reflection and argumentative reasoning, and describes religion are for the masses, he says:
“Religions are exclusively for the great majority of people who are not capable of thinking, but only of believing and are susceptible not to arguments, but only to authority.” (Schopenhauer, n.d)
In his view philosophy and religion are different in the way main beliefs are established and justified. Philosophy relies on clear eternal consistent reasoning and to test the truth of its claims. While religion turns to external authority for evidence. Religions attract their believers through signs and miracles not arguments.
“There evidence is external and as such is called revelation which is authenticated by signs and miracles, there arguments are mainly threats of internal and indeed although temporal evils directed against un-believers even against mere doubters.” (Schopenhauer, n.d)
This argument might make more sense to the New Age, as it pertains to magic and the spiritual, while Christianity implores the miracles and rising of Christ as the central figure head, but no one else (not even yourself, just your faith). Christ-consciousness is something only the New Age is about, fundamentalist Christian are betting on the return of Christ, not the Christ returning in our consciousness as a spiritual return of Gnosis.
The New Age Amorphous structure opens the door from other sects, like teachings from theosophy is one example, Christian fundamentalist however, group them into an Aquarius Conspiracy. Martin Euser describes Theosophy:
Theosophy is not about believing anything, but about investigating things (spiritual and psychic) and relating them to each other, trying to get to know one-self better and helping to make this world a better place. A study of religions, philosophies, and science is also encouraged. This is all part of the second and third object of the original theosophical society (the first object being to form a nucleus of human beings which serves as a practical example of harmonious cooperation without any distinction being made regarding sex, race, skin colour, etc.- [my paraphrase]) (Euser, M n.d)
One of the figure heads of the Theosophy group, is Petrovna Blavatsky, she was outspoken in many of her writings. She criticized many people and institutional systems, this includes; Judaeo-Christians, and Darwinist – Haeckel. She would attack through her writings other groups who taught religion/philosophy/science (and their proponents) that prevented the human race to empower itself (like those religions that emphasize human sin and guilt and dependency on others for salvation). She was a proponent of the development of the inner Christ - Krishna – or Buddha – nature, which can be a possibility and goal in the natural order process. The Jesuits in her time plotted against many esoteric organizations. Even at present many people have acknowledge that they take their resort to slander, insinuations, etc.
Schopenhauer realized the different characteristics of such polarizing beliefs system because both are seeking truth in their own way. But, philosophy can’t base their view on any authority such as scriptures and must conform to experience alone. Philosophical must be based on two types of experience be perception of the natural world, and our reflection of ourselves.
“The whole of experience is like a cryptograph, philosophy is like a deciphering of it, on the correctness of this is confirmed by the continuity on connection appear everywhere, if only this whole is grasped the sufficient depths, inner experience is connected to outer, it must it capable of being interpreted explained from itself.” (Schopenhauer, n.d)
Religion has degenerated into fundamentalist of all kinds, while science is rife with savants’ idiots, scientism as a new religion. Older than science – Hermeticism, the middle road to truth, Gnosis, Freemasonry, Rosicrucean orders, several theosophical societies, anthroposophical, etc. can be considered ways to understand life. Unfortunately, dogmatism is strong with many members and leaders in such orders, not to mention the flood of questionable material from the last century in some of these movements. There is also a reluctant approach for people to do research relating to their ideas.
Jordan from spirit-science, is bridging the gap of science and religion while doing good work is bombarded by those systems that want to keep it separated. His works are not all correct and changing paradigms is risky considering the amount of followers they have. The numbers are staggering and tend to be the New Age crowed. The Polar shifting theory he teaches is an example of a false truth and the assumption of revising such theory would be admitting a falsity, this is more difficult for groups outside the science community. The scientific method is about revising any inaccurate tests and measurements, an aspect of science, which is inherently good, and should be adopted by the New Age and Truthers. “Truth as a deciphering mechanism is a work of grace; however, truth as a mechanism of control is a stunted state.”
Bridging the gap of Religion and Science is not as detached as you might think, it was once called Wisdom-Religion. Nowadays it called Theosophy, which philosophy is a driving force off, introduced to us by H.P Blavatsky under the guidance and inspiration of her teachers (the Masters of Wisdom and Compassion).
Plato would say that materialistic science can never arrive at truth because it wholly depends on what our senses tell us about the world. Instead, we should develop our inner sense of understanding to such a degree that we can perceive the causes behind all visible phenomena. Our outer senses are just a help for living on this outer plane of life.
Theosophy brings the gap that's separating science and religion closer, by shining a light on principles of nature which can be identified and measured by many religion and science, if properly investigated. Theosophy's schematic structure incorporates all great religions and grand philosophies (such as from Plato and Pythagoras). The goal of life is answered through religious aspect, why things are as they are? How, nature works can be answered through the scientific aspect. The separation of these three interconnected aspects should not be practiced, as it causes a real loss of understanding. The ethical basis for such a separation for science causes ethical degradation, which the last centuries have done.
Theosophy outlines universal principles, encourage open-mindedness. Recognizing these principles can develop the faculty of understanding, with unselfish service and combined esoteric study. These principles can be found in the literature of many religions, especially the mystical sections, e.g. Sufism, Gnosis, ancient Kabbalah, certain parts of Buddhism, Hinduism, etc. as well in old myths.
An important principal of truth are called “The seven jewels of wisdom” these seven jewels of wisdom implores the practical system of ethics. It involves incorporating the idea of Universal Brotherhood (the essential connectedness of all beings). These jewels can be used to build a system of science, which is based on consciousness as a primary factor. What are the jewels? This is up to you, to research.
