What is happening in the world? Where are we at in civilization’s progress? What forces are at work behind the scenes?
These are the questions a lot of people are asking, people from different countries with different outlooks, beliefs and ways of life.
There are Socialists and Communists, dismayed at the failure of 20th Century attempts to build a better, fairer society, or at least their part failure and eventual collapse.
There are Spiritualists and New Age people hoping 2012 will bring about a New Era as Spiritual forces from the Light start a project of Enlightenment which will dispatch the Dark forces. Some see this in terms of ending the so-called New World Order, a New Age term for unbridled capitalism or even fascism controlled by secret organizations like the upper echelons of Freemasonry and associated orders like the legendary Illuminati. Conspiracies theories abound, also involving the various secret services (CIA, Mossad, MI5, MI6, etc.), The Mafia and the various secret societies believed to be pulling strings and controlling governments behind the scenes.
There are many who believe alien civilizations, or the Inter-Galactic community, are observing us closely in UFOs, etc. and may be intervening to hasten our progress. Others talk of more sinister intentions, but some of these theories are so way out as to be pure science fiction. However we know for certain UFOs are watching us and and there has been contact with governments because people like Ex-NASA scientist and astronaut who walked on The Moon, Dr Ed Mitchell, have revealed this publicly. The late USAF Major Donald E. Keyhoe also provided much documentary evidence that the US air force knew alien civilizations were observing us as far back as the 1940s, and indeed in 1956 Admiral Hillenkoetter, former CIA Director, admitted as much in a New York newspaper. Dr Allen J. Hynek, director of the USAF’s Project Bluebook investigation into UFOs, was originally a skeptic but also became convinced by the overwhelming evidence, and cooperated with (and appeared in) the film ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’ based on real alien abductions such as that of Betty and Barnie Hill back in 1960.
So what is really going on? As the world lurks from crisis to crisis it appears as if world capitalism is teetering towards total collapse. The most worrying thing is that in the past when this has loomed on the horizon, such as in the Great Depression of the 1930s, they have created a World War to boost the arms industry and provide full employment, getting rid of the ‘surplus population’ at the same time. The forces in control are absolutely ruthless, their only motive is financial profit for themselves at any cost. In the process, even without a World War, the Earth and the environment are being destroyed by pollution in the form of fumes from cars and factories, and radioactive nuclear waste, while the world’s scarce natural resources are fast being depleted. Climate change and global warming is causing huge ‘natural disasters’ which are, in fact, far from natural because our environment is being put out of balance by greedy human forces.
It was a tragedy when various experiments to build a new society ultimately collapsed in the 20th Century. In Britain we had the post-War Labour government’s Welfare State, the setting up of the universal, free National Health Service and the taking into public ownership of many industries and services. All this was later picked apart by successive Labour and Tory governments, most notably the Tory government of Margaret Thatcher, followed by John Major and then Tony Blair’s ‘New Labour’ government which continued these policies, scrapping Labour’s commitment to public ownership and Socialism.
The Soviet Union and the European Socialist countries collapsed in the period 1989-1991, and undoubtedly the corruption inside these countries was largely to blame. One can’t help wondering if secret societies like Freemasonry and allied orders were at work behind the scenes insuring that the ruling Marxist-Leninist Parties were infiltrated by careerists and opportunists to minimize the effect of Socialism, preserve the privileges of the new ruling bureaucratic class, and halt progress towards true Communism. While much was achieved in building a better society the system was badly flawed by corruption and lack of freedom. Economically, probably the most successful, and the model for the future, was former Yugoslavia’s system based on worker/consumer cooperatives and individual public enterprises competing in a friendly Socialist market place, i.e. genuine Market Socialism. Not the re-introduction of capitalism as has occurred in the People’s Republic of China, the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, etc. Meanwhile the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea has adopted a Stalinist monarchial system, with rumors of gross violations of human rights. In such a closed society it is difficult to distinguish fact from propaganda.
As to alien civilizations, they have probably been observing us for thousands of years, but seemed to take a much keener interest after we developed the atomic bomb in the 1940s. This is when the modern UFO era began, and they seem concerned that we don’t take nuclear weapons out into Space and affect other planets, and they are watching to see if we destroy our planet before it is ready to join any inter-glactic community. Certainly a planet with warring nations and weapons of mass destruction, which recently had two World Wars and has continued to have wars, is in no fit state to join such an advanced inter-galactic community.
Spiritual forces are said to be about to embark on a program of Enlightenment to hasten our Spiritual awareness, expose corruption, prove the afterlife and thereby speed our Spiritual and secular development.
The 20th Century experiments with various forms of Socialism proved that any political system can be distorted and used to keep in power a ruling class with wealth and privileges over the rest of society. Playing on the apathy and political immaturity of the masses, it proved very easy for careerists and opportunists to infiltrate the organs of State power, hence the corruption and the ultimate backlash when Socialism was overthrown. That the masses then threw out the Socialist baby with the dirty bathwater of corruption has meant they lost all the achievements of this flawed Socialism such as full employment, good public services, good education and health services, security in old age, and a sense of community and building a new society. In exchange they got, by and large, the same corrupt political leaders and bureaucrats under a new name, and an influx of multi-national firms out to exploit cheap labor. Unemployment came to these countries for the first time, along with insecurity in old age, and all the defects of capitalism. Many have found out that the grass was not so green the other side of the Berlin Wall, and there is Ostalgie or nostalgia for even the flawed societies like that in the old DDR (East Germany). ‘Goodbye Lenin’, a German film about the collapse of the DDR, reflects this nostalgia for the first Socialist State on German soil.
What we should have learnt from the past is that you cannot impose a better society by dictatorial measures, and if you try to do this it will become very difficult for corruption in high places to be defeated short of revolution. Mao and Trotsky recognized this fact with their theories of Cultural and Permanent Revolution, but the former proved to be a nightmare as thuggish Red Guard mobs went on the rampage with huge human rights violations. Trotsky’s theories haven’t been put into practice on a wide scale, but would probably prove just as disastrous. As was Stalinism in all its forms.
The key to human society’s progress is surely Evolution not Revolution. As Tony Benn, the progressive Labour politician, has pointed out. If you allow politicians to represent you and form governments, then you must have a way of voting them out of office. Marxist theory about the masses ruling themselves directly by means of the one-Party Dictatorship of the Proletariat makes it all too easy for opportunists and careerists to gain control, and very difficult to wrest control back from them.
Alien civilizations and Spiritual forces have been unwilling to intervene directly in our affairs, because human free will must be allowed to find its own way. This is the only way we can really progress. We have been sent great Spiritual leaders to set an example how to live, people like the Buddha, Hare Krishna, Jesus Christ, Mahatma Gandhi and many others. Even atheists, agnostics and free thinkers like Bertrand Russell, Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels encouraged us to embark on a better way of living. If Marx’s words were later distorted and used to produce horrors like Stalin’s reign of terror, or that of Pol Pot in Kampuchea/Cambodia, then Jesus Christ’s words were also distorted to produce horrific wars, genocides and torture such as the Crusades and the Inquisition.
However if we remember the maxims of these great teachers and put them into practice, then we are on the right path. Bertrand Russell said ‘remember your humanity and forget the rest’. Marx’s formula for Communism is: ‘from each according to their ability, to each according to their needs’. Jesus told us to ‘love your enemy’.
Spirit and alien civilizations can’t and won’t intervene to change our world directly, but they can show by example. In the late 20th and early 21st Century there have been many revelations about the afterlife, for example. Increasingly the old orthodox religiious ideas of Heaven and Hell, along with atheism, are losing influence as more and more people become aware of the real nature of the afterlife.
The Internet has played a great part in by-passing the censorship of the orthodox scientific community, of organized religion, etc. New progressive science is emerging, such as the Institute of Noetic Sciences, and new scientific theories which encompass the afterlife and the paranormal, such as the Big Breed theory of Ron Pearson (see links on top right of this page for his Big Breed theory, and also links for DianaSpeaks as the late Diana Spencer is part of this new Spiritual Enlightenment, being a wayshower in life and now is continuing to expose corruption and conspiracies thru her voice channel ‘Christian’/Andrew Russell-Davies).
In the coming months and years we are told to expect many new wonders which will show all humanity the true nature of the afterlife, that it is a proven fact, and that if we don’t live decent lives caring for others here and now, then the universal law of cause and effect means we will have to face the karmic consequences of our actions. On the other hand, living better lives with consideration and empathy for others, building a better society in the process, will result in good karma and our Spiritual progress.
As we put war, imperialism and capitalism behind us and build what must be some kind of Socialist or even ultimately a truly self-governing, Stateless communist society without artificial regulators like police, money, armed forces, etc. (though that may always be too utopian for us here on Earth), then alien civilizations may well invite us to join their inter-galactic community and will let us into their great technological secrets, such as the power behind their UFOs and unlimited sources of energy. But we can only make this progress towards a better society once we have achieved Spiritual awareness and progress. When we realize whatever we inflict on others will rebound on ourselves, because ultimately we are all One, then we will become much more considerate of others. This is how Spirit will teach us, not by force, but simply by showing us that when we hurt others we hurt ourselves, when we exploit others we will ultimately feel the consequences.
Without the all-round picture we cannot achieve progress. Orthodox religion with its distorted message could not change human nature, nor could atheistic creeds like Marxism which also became distorted. We must have a true picture of the world and the afterlife as revealed by mediumship, channeling, Instrumental TransCommunication (ITC), and the new science including Quantum Physics.
We will then learn that all matter is a creation of Mind or Thought Energy, and that nothing can exist without Mind. Consciousness is behind everything, whatever name you like to give it – Pearson’s i-ther/intelligent ether, the Great Spirit, God, Allah, the unified conscious energy field, etc. All matter, all material worlds and universes are really virtual realities created by Mind or Consciousness. We are all connected and are all essentially pure energy or Spirit, all part of this intelligent ether or universal consciousness which is the creator of all matter. And the purpose of this creation, of our own Universe and the Spiritual planes closest to our Universe which are composed of different orders of matter is to learn lessons and to progress Spiritually till we need no more physical forms or matter universes, and exist as pure energy or Spirit.
