Julian Rose writes about overcoming the alientation and fragmentation in a society where people have forgotten their innate divine nature.
by Julian Rose
The Christ consciousness with which humanity is endowed, and which took physical form in Jesus Christ some 2,000 years ago, is a revolutionary gift. It has the power to transform, to heal and to penetrate the darkness with light. However, it is a gift which still remains largely sealed away from human consciousness, covered over by the cult of consumption and religious orthodoxy
What this great Shamanic prophet of 2,000 years past was able to teach and to demonstrate was that such a state of (higher) consciousness ‘exists’ and has always existed; and that it is freely available to us all, being an incontrovertible part of our very DNA and of every cell and corpuscle of our bodies.
I have chosen to use the expression ‘Christ Consciousness’ not because it is any more significant than other high prophetic teachings, but because a significant portion of Western society’s spiritual inheritance is founded on the words and works of the prophet Jesus Christ. Such teaching has the role of passing-on in the earthly plain of existence that which originates in the great cosmic plain of existence, of which we and our planet are an integral part. However it has seldom succeeded in this role, largely due to the fact that ‘religious orthodoxy’ has contrived to take control of the spiritual realm, claiming unto itself ‘the moral high ground’ and giving itself the authority to censor the revolutionary quality of the original message.
Every culture has its shamans, gurus, saints and spiritual masters. Shiva, Buddha, Krishna, Mohamed and Abraham, to name just a few. All their teachings have a common theme: ‘mankind is created in the image of God’ and the realisation and manifestation of this Godly state is the true goal and purpose of humanity’s existence here on earth. They also all state that love and compassion are central attributes of the human condition.
That is why I started by saying that we are endowed with a revolutionary gift.
But when this Godly gift is disassociated from its human expression and consigned instead to being the sole attribute of our Creator – then the teachings of Jesus Christ and other great prophets, become fundamentally subverted. The revolutionary ‘divine soul seed’ which we are called upon to nurture into its fullness of being is instead carefully sanitized and locked away from the light.
Having so disposed of our birthright, we seem to feel liberated, as though we have rid ourselves of some odious burden. But all we have succeeded in doing is to wrap ourselves in a state of profound self deception and call it ‘freedom’. In denying the divine inheritance - which is encoded in our genes - we effectively shut off the lines of communication with our Creator and set off down the road of genetic deception. Genetic deception, quite literally meaning: ‘an attempt to deceive our genes’.
Within the Divine Creation Plan homo sapiens has been endowed with the ability to decide his own destiny: we have ‘free will’. Thus we humans have evolved into the unique position of being able to reflect on our state of being as well as use our intellectual capacity to reason, compare and take considered action. The fact that we are born in the image of our Creator and yet are endowed with this precious gift of ‘free will’ (having control over our destinies) gives us a very special responsibility. A responsibility to nurture our Godly gift into a proper flowering and to direct the fruits of this flowering into the amelioration of our society and natural environment, so that they come to reflect our state of being. But it is precisely here that we face the greatest challenge and greatest danger.
What happens, if, in utilising this gift of free will, we decide that we prefer not to recognise and honour its source?
What happens if we find that the intellectual power of the mind, stripped of its birthplace in the soul, appears to be an adequate tool for dealing with our worldly concerns?
What happens if we put love and compassion on the back burner, rationalising that they hamper our competitive instincts, material drives and personal ambitions?
The answer can be found by looking around us and into our history. A wilful mind, divorced from its marriage with the compassionate soul, runs amok, bequeathing itself special powers and high degrees of self importance. It becomes interested in splitting the atoms of its origin and unrecallably altering the genetic pool of nature of which it is part.
It starts to proclaim its superiority over all other life forms as well as over fellow humans.
It goes to war and murders with cool impunity. It creates abstract ideas, denatured versions of ‘progress’ and tunnel vision theories and practices. In short, it steers its deluded self into a blind alley from which the only escape is collapse and dissolution.
This seems to be where a significant portion of humanity finds itself today; in an advanced state of alienation and fragmentation. Divided into a thousand parts and no longer able to see the whole or remember its true identity – who we are.
And yet for many, when confronted by the arrival of a newborn baby on our planet, this loss of memory is suddenly reversed. The immediate reaction is to coo at its shining innocence, its wide staring eyes and curious smile. This baby seems to stir our memory - and what we are reminded of is that we are looking at ourselves; witnessing ourselves as an integrated whole - without the fragmentation. We can say of this little being that he or she is indeed an ‘immaculate conception’; born in the image of the Creator. At this unguarded moment we are reminded that our own wholeness and innocence is buried somewhere within and is crying to come out. The little spark of genius that stares us in the face – exudes that same spark which we pushed to one side - because it failed to match the pact we made with the status quo: the pact of mediocrity, conformity and godlessness.
All that is wrong with life today starts here.
In separating ourselves from ourselves we establish a dangerous, abstract and virtual reality world. A world which quickly becomes recognised as ‘the norm’ to be upheld as the politically correct mode of behaviour for ‘civilised society’. In clinical terms, it amounts to a state of paranoid schizophrenia and represents the underlying malaise of modern man and post industrial society in general. In this state of alienation, ‘scientists’ tinker with the building blocks of life and biochemists attempt to re-engineer the plant and animal kingdom, ultimately foisting their deluded experiments on mankind as a whole thereby turning our world into a vast and chaotic laboratory. Politicians look on and applaud. This is, after all ‘scientific advancement’ and therefore not only perfectly acceptable – but desirable. And even when it is considered possible that the motives are more aligned with the lust for profit, power and control, the re-engineering of the sacred seed is still given the go-ahead.
Most important political and corporate decisions are made by those suffering from this psychologically impaired and ‘alienated’ condition. In fact wherever a top-down, corporate led hierarchy holds the reins of power. However, the fact that such hierarchies are allowed to establish such a controlling influence is strong proof of our own complicity and passivity. It is we who give these schizoid individuals such powers, therefore it is we who must be held responsible for the outcome. It is here where one finds the most conspicuous levels of denial; so many amongst us seem determined to avoid recognising their role in delivering the state of play we find around us.
Those wishing to represent their fellow human beings in high office should of course, in a good working democracy, exhibit a fair degree of wisdom and balance. They should act diligently and responsibly in carrying out actions that affect all citizens within their arena. They should know how to balance head and heart, so as not to be arrogant or domineering in their actions. They should be strong in rejecting that which is harmful to people and the environment – and strong in pursuing and promoting that which encourages goodness and diversity. Above all, they should be seen to ‘practice what they preach.’ But as we see, the realities of 21st century society are very different.
Does this description fit any one you know in the world of politics, big business or even in academia?
What has become of responsible leadership in our time?
Why are so many of us willing to turn a blind eye on the abject failings of others and thereby accept the misrule of our Countries and States? And where is the voice of the church in all this?
It appears that those who seek to fill positions in society which give them access to the levers of State can only get these positions by agreeing to sell their souls to a largely unseen and shadowy ruling cabal. It is this cabal which pulls the strings of the puppet politicians and senators whom we elect, and it is this cabal that sets the 'real' agenda: culminating in their dream of a top down, autocratic ‘new world order’.
The conclusion one draws from all this, is that it is the denial of the divine in man which inevitably leads to the corruption and degradation of the human condition – and therefore of society as a whole.
It is within this setting that nature’s seeds are themselves corrupted, as if to symbolise the alienated state of humanity. We see this all too clearly in deteriorating human health, closely aligned with a chemically corrupted and genetically modified food chain. Once vigorous human reproductive energy is becoming devoid of life and is unable to achieve normal patterns of procreation.
When our true reality is denied ‘virtual reality’ replaces it. Virtual reality becomes the new normal, embracing a world of deception, distortion and alienation. The simple practical values of yesteryear are lost to a whole host of up to the minute cyber distractions; just as the good robust foods that once filled our plates are lost to laboratory inspired mixtures of chemical preservatives, colours and altered genes. In the brave new world of mass food production, even nanotech inventions are on the menu; while real foods have to be irradiated (USA) and rendered inert because they might contain living bacteria. Life itself is thus reduced to a sterile, denatured package, offered up for auction in the sanitized isles of hypermarket shopping malls.
So what about us humans?
There are those who foresee gene processing laboratories replacing the mother’s womb. Laboratory colour charts allowing parents to select the colour of the eyes and bioengineering deciding the shape of the mouth and nose; even the desired emotional range could be programmed into the design. Under such a regime ‘eugenics’ would be put right back onto the map of ‘human advancement’. Already male infertility is running high in the United States and growing in Europe. Is it a coincidence that the spread of genetically engineered foods almost exactly matches the rapid rise in human infertility?
While the spark of a higher purpose has briefly illuminated various phases of human evolution, we appear to have failed to nurture this spark into the transformational fire which would bring forth the Godly in us – and keep it there.
And yet, 2,000 years ago, an outstanding prophet helped us to understand that homo sapiens is created in the image of the Supreme Consciousness (God) and that we have the potential to realise and manifest this divinity which lies within every one of our 13 billion cells and which is etched into our very DNA. But we chose to downgrade our divinity and to compromise our greatness, preferring the safety of mediocrity to the risks of genius. What price will we have to pay for such cowardice? What price our Faustian pact with the masters of deception?
A great price.
Yet, because Real Life is a sentient, coherent whole and not the fragmented and insentient state that it appears to be, there is always the potential for a positive resolution, even to the worst crisis. Behind the propaganda fuelled veil of Maya lies an Omnipotent reality which is the source of our divinity and the fecund pool of our creativity. We have only to access this divinity and we will be guided along the path of deeper destiny and beyond the reach of the masters of darkness.
But let ourselves be ruled by the false gods who masquerade as the great and the all knowing – and we will remain locked into a covert pact with the forces of darkness. We will remain slaves to the technocrat financiers, genetic engineers and corporate gangsters, and no sign will there be that we were born in the image of our Creator.
However, should we find the courage to speak out and to challenge these false gods; to challenge those religious proclamations of the church which continue to repress the revolutionary message of the great prophets - then the new dawn will come rushing out to greet us, holding wide its arms in welcoming joy.
Suddenly, as the light pours in, we can see so clearly the falsities that surround us. We can recognise where the truth is spoken and where the words are shrouded in deceit. We can ‘see through’ the gamesmanship of political figureheads, phony academics, and false messiahs. A new world of possibilities emerges in front of our eyes and a new sense of self empowerment rises in our souls. At that moment we can rejoice and set sail on the seas of a higher calling, in the knowledge that the angels are guiding our voyage and that Luciferian guile can no longer win our souls or control our minds.
This time has surely come. A time foretold in testaments of old, through stories of searing light and apocalyptic darkness. Who will now deny that such apocalyptic times are with us? The virus of greed, deceit, ulterior motive and repression has reached epidemic proportions, manifesting as a pandemic on our planet. And no one can stand aside from some level of complicity in the shaping of these events.
Yet 2,000 years ago Jesus proclaimed “The Truth shall set you free”
Now the time has come to act on this proclamation and do away with our complicity with all that drags life down. There is but one overriding necessity at hand: to shake off the chains of illusion and cease to hide from the Truth. Now is the time to move forward and upward and to find the courage to confront and to remove those obstacles that are placed in our path. We each have the joyous task of laying the stepping stones that will reach beyond the Fall. We have this power – and we owe it to our Creator to act on it: for we are offspring of the divine sparks of immaculate conception and not the sterile clones of genetic deception.
