Here I have been for three months in Portugal. It is a big difference to be back in Europe, for many reasons.
Things are going fast, because time is being accelerated and nothing can stop the emerging of the new paradigm. What has just happened in Tunisia and South Sudan is just the beginning of a wave towards truth and transparency.
Everywhere movements are starting who- in their partial ways- present an alternative philosophy and practise. Some day these groups will get together across borders, religions, languages and races to form a worldwide coalition of goodwill.
The implosion of the present paradigm and of the Anglo-Saxon worldview is patent to all. The future is uncertain and chaos is mounting. We are all undergoing a colective initiation. That means that our most prevalent ways of being, our weaknesses and defects as well as our virtues, are being intensified. So that we really know who we are. At the same time we are being empowered to achieve our dreams and intentions.
The synthesis of the past is proceeding. To see what can be salvaged and transported into the emerging global solidarity and spiritual awakening paradigm.
Exciting times for mankind and for the universe!……
Time cannot be stopped, mainly in the cities. The vortex has begun spinning and everybody will be thrown to their exact physical location and in the end to their corresponding dimension.
The planet’s crisis cannot be solved by the system, by those in the economic and political worlds who have created it. We are literally in the hands of God.
Let each one assume its role and its mission for the battlefield now is Time.
Humanity will be given two options:
The politicians allied with the scientists will offer a new reality, increasingly virtual, where age will be reversed for the rich, to be promised immortality, people will be cloned at wish, disease will be eradicated and humans will live in a biotronic world where all their needs will be satisfied. It will be a world where physical money will be discontinued. A world without suffering and adventure.
Access to nature will be progressively fading and the spirit will be banished as an irrelevant idea.
The spiritual solution. A life of simplicity and contentment for all. Devoid of the materialistic and consumerist drive that has ruled us in this last cycle. The earth being uplifted to another stage of cooperation, love and integration into the sentient cosmos.
An inner acceptance of the will of God, as the creator of our spirits.
A life where we as gods will be creators, conscious creators of our reality. Thus ceasing to be like animals and to have to prostitute ourselves for a salary.
The economic crisis has already become a social and political crisis. It will become a spiritual crisis, a systemic crisis of the prevailing paradigm. People will really have to choose between two ways of living.
A new culture is available for mankind, a way out has been trodden. Soon it will be announced.
The World Crisis of Facts
November 2008 – May 2009
Facts, unlike poetry, are not universal. They are trivia, distractions, lies colored and framed by statistics. Facts, like feces, are the by-products, the visible outburst of subterranean long-term universal processes that flow in a more subtle and real dimension.
Facts, proofs, evidences, like the thoughts and the emotions which they materialize, are but crude attempts to unveil meaning through transient and subjective signs. Yet meaning is a holistic insight, closer to being the sea or even a cloud rather than to being a building.
Facts are stations on a road that only leads to more facts. Even facts that conjoin in clusters in order to get more credibility are always under the threat of new facts. Trying to build theories and systems on the basis of facts is like a child trying to learn and to control the nature of reality by assembling small pieces of wood. Another angle is perceived and the whole edifice collapses.
The methods of (predominantly Anglo-Saxon) science have lead to the present inflation of facts, data, products and financial vehicles. Once you try to get identity through external knowledge, once you try to understand and explain the world in order to control it and exploit a soul-less Nature, once you identify with what you do and have, you need more and more facts to buttress your theories. You have to call the myths and the invisible a lie. You make the material your lord and facts are always there to prove it.
Facts prove and build unreal systems. People who believe in facts in the end will cease to believe in themselves. They will fall prey to the creators of “faits accomplis”, the irrefutable, irreversible and imposed facts. They will worship their own images, the photos that others took of them. They will eat the crumbs of the celebrities and believe in the predictions of advertising, eternally surfing the net of statistical limitation and control.
Facts are the evidence of a culture’s slavery to Time, of a culture addicted to breaking news and television trash that replace people’s creativity and vital participation in democracy. Facts tend to repeat themselves, to echo, to fractalize; you always detect the same type of crimes or diseases, the same cover-ups, the same superficial conclusions, the same replacement by newer facts. All facts point to lack, none to abundance.
Touch an economic or social fact – you will see a hidden bubble rising. Wait until the bubble busts – another fact will erupt. As the generations do not have memory and the old are not heard, the country managers just maintain the “status quo” under the pretense of change and evolution.
The high priests of facts, the pundits of Economism, in their ignorance of the whole, try to manage the flow by adding color and spin, which they call “regulation of the financial agents” or “balancing the sheets” referring to the great unknown in the vaults.
The derivatives of their actions, the facts or symbols of their greed, their lack of historical perspective and competence were an abuse of the future and are a huge wandering cloud of anti matter (between 640 and 800 trillion dollars) inevitably bound to collide with the universal lack they created on this planet.
But the “balancing of the sheets” of the Yin and Yang also goes on other levels: the assets of the banks are inflated by the bankers to get more bonuses, while the statistics of the unemployed are deflated and minimized to defuse social unrest and prevent riots.
And if one wants to go further in the “balancing” you see savers in the East and consumers in the West. The savers finance the consumers. The Communist Party subsidizes the hedonist individualists. The prosperity they refuse their people is a remote sequence of the results of the nineteenth century Western policy of imposing to the last Chinese Emperors the free import of opium to the Chinese people. A policydevised by the British to wisely dispose of the Yellow Peril. Thus history repeats and compensates itself.
Facts, trends and patterns weave their enticing meanings in the tapestries and intricate lattices of the energetic matrix of space and time.
What unites East and West? The materialist god. The tyranny of facts. The addiction to power and greed. The fear of the unknown.
The world cries and babies die. The animals are impatient and threaten rebellion. Anything goes and the world is for grabs.
Who rises to the occasion?
Nov 2008 – Feb 2009
In the Chinese language the word “crisis” translates both as danger and as opportunity. This is clearly the situation the world is facing today.
Americans have the feeling that America is the world and never has that been closer to becoming true.
After eight years of political tension, the world is now focused on a different crisis. After tension there is now a very high worldwide expectation for Obama’s presidency. For the first time in several countries the election campaign was followed daily by national televisions. People understood what was at stake. On one side more of the same, delivered by an old man, who confessed knowing nothing about economics, and on the other side, change and a hope of fairness for all.
Appropriately, the President of Brazil said this in early in February :“The world cannot elect anymore presidents that do not listen to social movements, that do not listen to the people”. And the reach of Obama’s star could also be felt in January in France when the workers striking chanted “Yes we can” down the streets of Paris. Another puzzling effect is that the word O-ba-ma in the Persian language of Iran means “he is with us.”
The challenge that is facing Obama seems to be an economical one, hence his actions to remedy the situation. However with time it is probably going to become a social crisis, which will become a political crisis worldwide and, in the end will reveal itself as a crisis of the model of society we created for this planet, that is, a change of paradigm in civilization. It is obviously too early to address that core point. Policies will have to fail and frustration increase.
The huge cloud of “derivatives,” some $500 trillion, moving in the ethers between Dubai and Tokyo and having very little relation to real assets, cannot be assuaged by a few billion dollars handouts to banks. There was too much greed and lack of competence and foresight to be erased with such short term goodwill.
The crisis is systemic and the solution cannot be found within the system. Part of the crisis of the system is the increasing worldwide disillusion with politicians, economists, managers, and bankers.
Americans have had the tendency to see their leaders in messianic terms. Even though it is premature to say that with certainty, Obama seems to be destined to be the messianic figure by excellence. He is now the rallying point for the aspirations of people of all classes in all continents. He could become “the imam,” the spiritual and political leader.
Even though his arrival to the White House could almost be seen as the opposite. For we finally have a human in that position, a person like us. A being who is compassionate, loving and yet efficient, dedicated to take action to solve problems. A non ideological man who is not just a technocrat, a pragmatic manager. For he is imbued with a vision. He has a dream.
Speaking with a spiritual European astrologer recently about Obama she told me the following:
1. He does not have personal planets in the chart, meaning that he does not come to project his ego but comes in service, guided by a mission. He projects himself in the group, the government, the people, and the nation. He comes for group action.
2. The present polarity with the past is so strong that the situation is irreversible. Americans, which are not used to having to think, are going to have the alternative to think and decide consciously.
3. His project is very luminous; he is a light in the world, a man of good will, transparent.
4. But it is going to be very difficult; he may be a transitional government. Why?
5. Because he has Pluto in Capricorn in the Eight house, of karma and memory. Could it be the weight and memory of the previous regime? He seems to be tied by that. A counterweight. But, fortunately, that Pluto does not have bad aspects. It is rather a stuck energy, dark, heavy, difficult to move.
With time and the worsening of the situation, Obama will start realizing that material solutions cannot solve a crisis that is fundamentally spiritual, that there are too many causes, actors, factors, and vectors involved to be addressed by one-dimensional policies. To be able to comprehend both the multifarious nature of the crisis and the simplicity of its solution, he will have to open himself to guidance. He will have to realize that his intelligence, dedication, honesty and hard work, will not suffice. He will have to find a higher form of inner surrender. He will have to refine his relation with God.
Even though he likes action and problem solving and he is naturally at ease in teamwork, he needs a higher container, to know that he is not alone. He is clearly a person who listens. But more than listening to the people and to his advisers, he needs to open to new revelations. In this time of crisis, they will probably come from uncommon and unexpected sources.
As always in universal human history and as Euripides, a Greek playwright wrote twenty-five centuries ago, “ the expected does not come and for the unexpected a god opens the door.”
As the perfect conciliation between science and religion cannot be found, that door will have to be something never seen before or perhaps something very simple and age-old perfect.
