Revelations, Revolutions and Spin

The people who’ve run this world for at least 12,000 years are con artists.

They know what to reveal, when and how. When they get caught at one thing, they divert, obfuscate or find a scapegoat to bear the brunt of punishment for their own psychotic games. They prey upon a humanity with little to no independent imagination left — a humanity happy to outsource their imagination to tell-LIE-vision, movies, commercials, watered down Faery Lore turned into cotton candy, butterfly “fairy tales” and Common Core. Recognizing their own inadequacy to create, they’ve co-opted humanity’s innate creativity and used it for their own nefarious ends. Now that some alternative media icons have busted them, they’ve begun to spin things the other way.

I don’t even know where to begin with this post, because I’m just shaking my head at what passes for “revelations” these days — at what people gobble down because it paints the current “leaders” as the bad guys and reveals the supposed “exact opposite” as the solution. Nevermind that these kinds of revelations trigger revolutions that take us nowhere. Nevermind that the Middle Way offers far more freedom. People continue to outsource the responsibility of freedom in favor of security. When they finally break out of that program, they’re happy to outsource the responsibility of freedom in favor of victim mentality and witch hunts. Nevermind stepping into strength. Nevermind exploring the Mysteries. Alternative media has spoken: “Throw the baby out with the bath water.”

Meanwhile, the real puppeteers continue to pull the strings. They simply sacrifice one round of useful idiots before anointing and animating the next batch. This occurs in politics, in banking and, most importantly for the awakening of humanity, in spirituality. When undeniably caught using esoteric tools to gather influence and rule the world, the best damage control appears to be demonizing any and all esoteric tools and wisdom. Mysteries? All Satanic. Witches? All Satanic. Archons? Annunaki? All powerful, all Satanic. To claim otherwise makes you one of “them.”

Anything they’ve ever mentioned or alluded to, anything at all that might remind someone somewhere of something scary, Shadow or misunderstood? Best to destroy. Nevermind careful definitions of “Satanic,” “reptilian,” “Luciferian” or “serpentine.” Nevermind the deliberate and historically inaccurate conflation of movements, energies or concepts. To hell with subtleties! It’s damage control time. Throw that frickin’ baby out with the bath water, before humanity embraces its own natural power and self-respect.

Grow up, humanity. Satan means “Adversary,” and not everyone who honors the connection with Earth and the Unseen World is your Adversary. On the contrary, many of those who’ve taken the time, energy, effort and Shadow Work to explore and experience the Mysteries are allies. The puppeteers just don’t want you to realize that, because then you’d realize what weak little cons they really are.

Regarding discernment: as a general rule, extremes miss the mark. Fascism or international communism? They both work out to the same totalitarian experience for the average Joe or Jane. Fundamentalist Christianity or Fundamentalist Islam? They both result in killing millions of innocents. It’s not Christianity or Islam: it’s the fundamentalist mentality that causes issues.

We’ve even got Fundamentalist New Ager’s, who represent some of the most deluded bunch around. Unlike the Fundamentalist Christians or Muslims who at least have a tradition to cling to, the strange phenomenon of Fundamentalist New Age-ism hodge-podges together, waters down and even flat out invents “traditions” of “tolerance” and “relativity,” and then lumps anyone who explores and honors the Ancient Mysteries into the black category of Satanist. Ironically, the Fundamentalist New Age crowd who felt so persecuted that they left Christianity or Judaism may be the first the join with Saudi Arabia in persecuting “witches.”

The definition of sin is “to miss the mark,” as in not expressing the fullness of your being. “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.”

“Love one another.”

This is a time for self-assessment, for the dropping of illusions. In the name of “revelations,” be careful what “revolutions” you unwittingly usher in. Theocracy? A One World Religion? Another Inquisition? The answer to the police state is not more totalitarianism from a “different” source. The answer is growing up, knowing yourself, recognizing yourself in others, and honoring the responsibility of freedom.

“Jesus said, ‘If your leaders say to you, ‘Look, the (Father’s) kingdom is in the sky,’ then the birds of the sky will precede you. If they say to you, ‘It is in the sea,’ then the fish will precede you. Rather, the kingdom is within you and it is outside you. When you know yourselves, then you will be known, and you will understand that you are children of the living Father. But if you do not know yourselves, then you live in poverty, and you are the poverty.’” ~ Gnostic Gospel of Thomas

“Know what is in front of your face, and what is hidden from you will be disclosed to you. For there is nothing hidden that will not be revealed. And there is nothing buried that will not be raised.” ~Gnostic Gospel of Thomas

Wake up, humanity! Evolution moves as a spiral, not a circular return to the same old, same old. I offer this from a place of deep love and sorrow at what I see even alternative media presenting as answers, revelations and “solutions.” Pray for courage and discernment.

“Love all, trust a few. Do wrong to none.” ~ William Shakespeare, All’s Well that Ends Well

“Fasten Your Seat Belts” … Reader Views Reviews Schizandra

Schizandra and the Gates of Mu
Laura Bruno
International Renaissance Press (2009)
ISBN 9780615301334

Reviewed by Olivera Baumgartner-Jackson for Reader Views (8/09)

There are books that should come with a warning label. If I think of some of the books I’ve read recently, there was definitely at least one that should have had an “Attention! Might put you to sleep!” sticker. “Handle with care! Incendiary!” would have been the right one for another recently read book. “Schizandra and the Gates of Mu” by Laura Bruno should come with a brightly colored label saying, “Ladies and gentlemen, please fasten your seat belts…”

The story of a 13-year-old named Schizandra starts with a bang. She’s recently orphaned and has to move to Sedona, where her grandmother lives. On a seemingly ordinary school day she faints during a biology class and enters a coma-like state. And so the wild ride begins. While they are trying to take her out of Sedona, it seems that Sedona does not want to let her go. Two helicopters malfunction, and so does an ambulance. It looks as if Schizandra is meant to stay. An incredible cast of wonderfully colorful characters gathers around Schizandra, all trying to help her wake up, since the future of the entire human race depends on that — her grandmother, the midwife; twin maiden aunts, whose chosen profession is reflexology; a handsome, brave and intuitive pilot; a Navajo, speaking of curses; a Japanese-Native American schoolboy. While they are trying to bring her back, Schizandra is in a different world, meeting and encountering some really vibrant creatures — shape-shifting strange frogs, drinking chocolate and munching on cocoa pods; talking crystals; a healer rabbit; a yellow, dancing hummingbird. And there’s talk about all kinds of extraordinary matters — Lemuria, also known as Mu; evolution of human race; people as portals; the true meaning of 2012. The list is never ending…

I’ve enormously enjoyed this book. The characters were unique, quirky and likeable. The dialogue was fresh, fluid and captivating. The storyline was compelling and moved at a fast, yet not frenetic pace. The subjects discussed in the book were diverse, and several made me interested in learning more about them, particularly the “end of the world” according to the Mayan calendar and the true meaning of it.

Mystical, magical and totally enchanting, this story opened up a world that I was not ready to leave behind yet. I am truly looking forward to the sequel, and hoping there will be several of those coming out shortly. I highly recommend “Schizandra and the Gates of Mu” to readers of all ages who are interested in true mysteries, New Age, astrology, fantasy worlds and prophesies, as well as to anybody who simply enjoys a well-written story. Laura Bruno will not disappoint you.
