The beloved ancient Angels of the Biblical past have modernized their vehicles of manifestation in according to the needs of the beliefs of the modern men; today, as we choose an Alfa Romeo or a Mitsubishi instead of a chariot, they adequated their means of transport and descend between the humans on the Flying Saucer, to satisfy the fantasies of those who “belive”!
The web pages, serious, semi- serious and not serious newspapers, televisions claims their arrive before the 2012, someone saying that they’ll “bring us fate”, “New Knowledge”, “Solutions and release for all our problems” or, acordng to the Orwell’s theories “to destroy our civilization”…. there’s enough tuff for everyone’s paranoid need to belive! But… the 2012 is on the doorstep, and they are still late… where they are? Maybe they have to tank up their space vehicle tired from the great galactic distances…. this are the main interests of many of those who affirm to be in some kind of modern “Spiritual Path”- UFO’s, Angels, Ascended Masters, Light Warriors, vampires, fourth, fifths and twentieth dimensions…and so on and so forth…..
Now, I don’t want to discuss questioning the existence or non existence of the UFO’s, neither if paranormal phenomena are real, or if Yeti’s, vampires, fairies and ghosts moves somewhere on this world. It may be possible, until proved otherwise…Moreover, only a little over a century ago, although the beginning of time surrounded by electric and magnetic phenomena, whoever said we’ll comunicate trough some global connecton (internet) with the all world, it would have been interned…. the Inquisitors fires were out of fashion since 200 years.
The fact is that similar topics raise in me a simple but at the same time fundamental question: “Why?”
I would like to understand why so many people have the tendency to belive that the solution of dissolution of all our problems would come for “other worlds”, dimensions or spaces, from someon who’s alien to our reality, while all the pain o this world is done by men “in the flesh” such as we are, and they do this without any external help.
I’ll try to make an example: the Celtics lived in total communion with the Natural environment, whit the stars, the wind, the trees and flowers, with the sounds of nature, the birds. They were aware of being part of the same environment that contained them and there was no reason to conquer or bend nature to their will, because everything was just segment of the same dimension or reality… briefly, they honored the sacredness of the natural principle related to Mother Earth. But, at the same time, according to the historians and anthropologists, they were also fierce warriors, performed many bloodthirsty rituals and had rough social attitudes.
Well, when I point that historical fact, someone comments that I am unfair to “label” the Celts as rude behavior and “savages”, affirming that, on the contrary, they were more sensitive than and able to connect and harmonze themselves with the natural forces. It’s a obre comment, and I agree with this. But the question arises again. We are all informed by the Celtic Music, the Celtic Love for the nature and we label them in these terms. The historical and anthropological sources vanishes against the beauty claimed by the New Age’s romantic morality I detest so much…and this is not development, this is cultivating ignorance, hypnotize ourselves with partial truths that becomes real belives! What value has this in the field of the search for the Truth?
Let me explain a little bit better what I mean say: one thing is living in close contact with nature, which does not mean the lake house, but is related whit the surviving from huntings, faceing ancestral fears, live with wild animals, storms, cold, harsh, mud and humidity; another thing is what we are living right now: an idea of what means living in nature, developing this experience only trough the sort of Disney’s version of nature shown by Discovery Channel and related programs. It’s imposible to know what means to live in direct contact with Nature visiting Zoological and Natural Parks during a piknik.
Willy-nilly, we are products of Rationalistic and Ideological Society, and this has moved us away from a natural harmony we have almost totally lost. We are pragmatic and romantic, and we njoy in sitting comfortably in our armchairs watching the world trough documentaries. That’s what we are! So, we take offence if someone sayis we are Machines? With what right?
I feel that the gooder and sentimental New Age vision, with it’s dreamy and artificial mild “naturalistic” interpretation, has much to do with this cultural heritage. Once again, we are slaves of our illusions: we seek for gold and crystals, Auras and Chakras, Fairies and Karmic Destiny while those who do not care about such topics destroys our beautiful planet and us, not only in an ecological way, but also in the field of our freedom of thought- even our brains are as many unfortunate animals species in extinction.
Briefly, I don’t consider nor give any value to a “spirituality” who makes us uncapable to face the life as it is, recognizing the modern world and its contradictions as field of Work on ourselves. Certainly, some kind of higher worlds exist, but we shouldn’t wait their descent whit idle hands, doing nothing. The Great Masters taught their mysticism to help us in finding ourselves, to make us capable to act in the present moment, not to dream a better future ignoring or rejecting what really happens around us.
Even a New Era is posible, of course, but it would happen alone, without our efforts? I don’t belive this.
