Continuum

I don’t watch current TV shows. I don’t have cable or Netflix or any of that stuff. But I do like older television programs.

I recently re-watched a not so old show called “Continuum” from 2012. The premise is fairly simple: a police officer from the future, known as a “Protector,” accidently gets sent back in time, 65 years, to 2012. All she wants to do is return home to her family. However, future-age terrorists have also come back in time and plan on changing history. If this happens, the world the Protector knew will never exist. She sets out to stop the terrorists.

Why to the terrorists want to change history? Because in the not-too-distant future, corporations take over the Earth and replace all governments. Profit is more important than people. The population is under constant surveillance. The means of production along with every other aspect of life is strictly controlled. The “Corporate Congress” determines what is produced, how it is distributed and who can receive it.

There is no hard currency – everyone has a “life debt” encoded on a “citizen chip” implanted in their bodies. If you are loyal to the State and obey all the rules without question, life is fine. However, those who disobey are dealt with harshly. The worst punishments are meted out to those who are not fiscally responsible. People who are chronically late with payments are stripped of citizenship and turned into mindless slaves, attached to assembly lines and treated like biological machines.

Yes: the future is a Communist State much like modern China. A select few – the members of the Inner Party – have a luxurious lifestyle and are the face of the nation while, literally, hundreds of millions of inhabitants of the land live in abject poverty. The State population is under constant surveillance (made more complete via the technology provided by corporations such as Google, Apple and Microsoft); “Social Credit scores” based on loyalty and obedience determine privileges received; re-education complexes, slave labor camps and organ harvesting facilities abound; State lies and deception are the norm and anyone who disagrees with the Establishment position on anything is persecuted and erased.

When the Protector becomes aware of the true nature of the “ideal society” she came from, she begins to re-think her objectives.

One of the evil corporations featured in the series is a thinly disguised version of Monsanto. In real life, Monsanto was the premier agrochemical and agricultural biotechnology corporation in 2012, but reportedly ceased operation around 2018 after its genetic manipulation and population control processes came to light. Actually, it was taken over by, perhaps, the more evil corporation of Bayer AG – a company with NAZI connections. Bayer and its affiliates control so much of the world’s biotechnology and pharmaceutical operations that it enjoys unlimited State protections and is free to conduct any number of diabolic experiments on humanity.

The creators of “Continuum” were prescient regarding corporate evil.  You have to wonder how this show got on network television in the first place considering the corporate-socialist control of the media. Sadly, the demonically inclined corporations are so secure in their power that they seem to take a perverse pleasure in exposing themselves to the public, knowing there are no consequences. And this statement isn’t even thought of as a conspiracy theory anymore – everyone can see that it is true and the people with the power to do something about it have chosen to side with the bad guys.

So, can we avoid the corporate takeover? I think it is already too late. With a senile, compromised, Communist puppet in the White House and feckless, ineffectual, quisling “leaders” around the world, we really have no line of defence. All we can do, short of the activism portrayed in the series, is personally RESIST it for as long as possible and protect ourselves, spiritually and materially, from succumbing to the evil influence.

Wake up and see what is happening. Wake up anyway you can and look for ways to defend yourself and your loved ones from the dictatorial policies that will soon be put into place. The worldwide pandemic lockdowns are just a taste of what is to come. Wake yourself up and try to wake up everyone else. Maybe, together, we can return some form of personal freedom and integrity to the world.

Will Oil Run Out?

The German chemist Caspar Neumann coined the term “fossil fuel” in 1759, and opened the door for the false belief that petroleum was formed from the remains of dinosaurs. Today, the consensus is that petroleum and natural gas are actually formed from biomass – mostly plankton, decaying marine organisms and single celled bacteria. Petroleum was around for billions of years before the age of dinosaurs and, probably, continues to be formed today.

When oil began to be heavily used, particularly to power automobiles, predictions began to appear that oil supplies would soon be depleted. Every few years some government agency, chemist, geologist, Nobel laureate or other intellectual would conclude that the age of “fossil fuels” was at an end – that within a few decades, there would be no more petroleum. All the predictions have proven to be false as new oil deposits and more efficient techniques for the discovery and uses for oil are continually developed.

Petroleum is abundant on multiple continents. The issue today is that the deposits are difficult to access. But technology continues to make advances in location and extraction processes ensuring a constant supply. The reason so many predictions of depletion have failed to come to pass is that they are mostly based on calculations of known deposits. Its like people looking at a giant apple tree and assuming that once all the apples that have already fallen to ground are collected, there will be no more fruit. They fail to take into account that the tree itself is filled to the top with apples.  

Scientists are mostly atheists and, thus, don’t acknowledge a profound spiritual truth – we live in an abundant Universe, on a planet of abundance.

Once people started looking at the sky with telescopes it did not take them long to start calculating just how many stars there were in the universe. They eventually concluded that there were about 100 billion stars. A big number, but still limited. Then in 1924 with a more advanced telescope, Edwin Hubble came to the astounding conclusion that many of the so-called stars out there were actually entire OTHER galaxies. It soon became apparent that the Universe was far larger than anyone had ever believed possible. Current estimates are of 400 billion stars in our Milky Way galaxy alone, with, perhaps, hundreds of billions of other galaxies filled with billions of stars of their own. There are possibly trillions of stars in the Universe.

The Universe is abundant.

Until recently, people thought the Earth was unique in the Universe. Today, however, we believe that almost all the stars in the Universe have planetary systems of their own. And based on the vast number of stars, there could be billions and billions of Earth-like planets.

The Universe is abundant.

We also used to believe that water and a breathable atmosphere were unique to the Earth. It now appears that some form of air and water and other natural resources exist not just throughout our solar system but throughout the whole Universe. And with so many Earth-like planets out there, the possibility of life – even intelligent life – might also exist on millions of worlds.

The Universe is abundant.

We live on a planet of abundance. Our Earth will continue to supply all the needs of life as long as we manage our resources. While we require them, oil and petroleum products will continue to be found and found in profusion. Oil will not run out. Perhaps, there will come a time when we simply no longer need oil or want to use it – that, however, is a different issue.

A Vow

A Buddha is an individual who has attained full Enlightenment – a person who is fully Awakened. Someone in this state is free of the Wheel of Birth, Death and Re-birth. In other words, a Buddha is able, once and for all, to leave behind the material world and enter Nirvana – the state of ultimate Liberation.

A Bodhisattva is someone who is on the path to Buddhahood. This person has taken a vow to do everything possible to attain the fully Enlightened state. A Bodhisattva lives only to become Awakened no matter how many lifetimes it takes or how difficult the struggle.  

Some Bodhisattvas also make a further vow – a vow that they will refuse to move onto Nirvana, even after becoming fully Awake, until all other sentient beings have entered before them.

Perhaps the most well known such person in the Dalai Lama. The current Dalai Lama (the one in exile) is the 14th incarnation of a Bodhisattva who made this vow hundreds of years ago. He continues to be reborn in the material world to help everyone else become liberated from the Wheel.

Now, I do not claim to be a Buddha. Neither am I a Bodhisattva. However, in this time of Covid, I have taken a similar type of vow.

My vow is this: I will not, willingly, take the Covid vaccine until everyone else who might want it has had the chance to take it before me. I will do all in my power to fulfill this vow. In this way, I will put all my fellow sentient beings ahead of me and assume the least and lowest position in the line. Only after all others have been inoculated will I take the vaccine myself.

It is important to understand that I make this vow in full humility and as a result of my concern for the well being of other people. This vow I take has nothing whatsoever to do with the possibility that the vaccine doesn’t actually work; that it doesn’t actually cure the virus; that it doesn’t actually protect anyone from getting the virus; that, even after taking the vaccine, it is still necessary to wear a mask and practice social distancing; that any resistance to the virus provided by the vaccine is likely only temporary and may require further inoculations in the future; or that, after taking the vaccine, many people display strange allergic reactions to it and some even die as a result.

No. I am not concerned with these trivial issues. My motives are honorable. I will not take the Covid vaccine until everyone else has had the chance to be inoculated and experiences restored good health.

The Beast

With a corrupt, compromised, senile, communist puppet in the White House the Doomsday Clock has moved to five minutes to midnight. More impactful than mere nuclear war, this Doomsday Clock is ticking away the minutes till the rise of Antichrist, the Great Beast.

Its not absolutely clear exactly who or what Antichrist is – it might be an individual, a corporate entity, a political regime or a perverse ideological movement. What is clear is the nature and actions connected to the Beast. The actions of Antichrist seemed like impossibilities when they were first described thousands of years ago, however today they aren’t that fantastical.

The Great Beast will rise out of the abyss and take control of the western world – a greatly expanded Roman Empire. The Beast will demand absolute agreement, allegiance and devotion to its pronouncements and actions. In addition to obedience the Beast will demand LOVE – a sick, twisted, demonic version of love. All people, particularly faithful Christians who disapprove of the Beast will be persecuted and harshly punished.

A second Beast will also arise – this one out the earth. This lesser beast will demand that everyone must worship the Great Beast. The lesser beast will create an image of the Beast and cause it to speak to the world and demand that everyone also worship the Image of the Beast.

George Orwell, in the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, (a novel everyone is encouraged to read) created an interesting version of this scenario. In the book, the western world, known as Oceania, is ruled by someone or something called Big Brother. It isn’t clear if Big Brother is a real, living person or just a projection of ideological will. The Inner Party, the group that controls the population, creates an image of Big Brother that is plastered on posters and billboards and is projected on TV screens in every building and on every street. The image of Big Brother is said to be always watching everyone and the projected image speaks from time to time to all people at once. The Inner Party demands that everyone must listen to and obey the words of Big Brother. But, more than mere obedience, everyone must also LOVE Big Brother. Those who do not are sent to re-education facilities run by “the Ministry of Love” or simply eliminated out right. They are in fact, completely cancelled from all public records and soon from the memories and consciousness of all the people. Terrifying.

One of the ways the Beast will control everyone is through the economy. The Beast will demand that everyone takes on a MARK, a symbol of total obedience to the Beast. Without the Mark of the Beast, no one will be able to buy or sell anything.

Thousands, hundreds or even just a few dozen years ago it wasn’t a stretch for someone to go off and live in the mountains, forests or some desolate location and avoid all government interference. Today, however, its almost impossible to live totally “off-grid.”

In the reign of Antichrist, without the Mark, you will not be able to work for anyone or hire anyone to work for you. You will not be able to own a house or rent an apartment. You won’t be able to travel, not even by public transportation or in a private car. You won’t be able to buy food or even seeds to grow your own food. You will have no insurance, bank accounts, credit cards, electricity, phones, internet, television, radio, newspapers – no means of communication. You will be CANCELLED and anyone who assists you will be a criminal.

Could this really happen, now?

It already does happen to a great extent in countries like communist China where people are given “Social Credit” scores based on their demonstrated allegiance to the Party. A high score means more benefits, a low score could mean being sent to a re-education facility or prison or worse. Population surveillance and control systems are set up by companies like Google, Apple, Twitter and Facebook. How long before these systems are applied in the West? Not long if current Liberal governments have their way.

There’s also the phenomenon of “Cancel Culture” growing in strength. Politicians, media personalities, and celebrities of all kinds are publicly declaring that they have “lists” of people they believe should not be allowed to make a living or live as part of society. How do you get on such a list? Disagree with the social ideology of the list maker. Powerful people and social influencers in fields as diverse as politics, business, entertainment, education and, even, health care are seeking to destroy people’s lives if they don’t align themselves completely with the “correct” ideology – The Beast is alive in these people. And current Liberal governments around the world, empowered by Social-ist Media platforms, are supporting the list makers. There is still some push back and resistance to these lunatic policies – but how much longer can right thinking people withstand the onslaught of the demoniac?

We might not be able to prevent the ultimate rise of Antichrist:  however, we can slow down the pace. We need to stop thinking that what we are dealing with is strictly a material process – it is SPIRITUAL. We must strengthen ourselves spiritually to survive the beastly attacks.

We must pray, meditate and train ourselves to recognize the face and actions of the Beast when it shows itself – and resist.

Fatal Flaw

A fatal or tragic flaw is a personality trait that causes an otherwise heroic or exceptional character to bring about their own downfall. When Donald Trump ran for president in 2016 he clearly revealed one such fatal flaw.

In any normal, fair and honest competition there are winners and losers. A loser reacts to the loss in three primary ways:

1/   Accept the loss and move on – perhaps pledge to try harder and be more prepared for the next time.

2/   Accept the loss and move on but also consider the value of working with the winner for more interesting future experiences.

In the 2016 election, most of the candidates that went up against President Trump, whether Republican, Democrat or Independent, reacted in one of these first two ways. Some just moved on with their lives and pursued other activities and a few chose to genuinely align themselves with President Trump.

However, a few reacted in a third way:

3/   Do not accept the fair loss and, instead, plot and scheme to orchestrate the downfall of the winner.

President Trump’s fatal flaw was that he couldn’t see that some people were not like him and were incapable of just moving on. Some people were disposed to launch treacherous assaults on the winner long after the competition was over.

President Trump is no stranger to losses. He was divorced twice, had many well planned out deals fall through, experienced several bankruptcies and was sued by competitors and others multiple times and lost several of the cases. However, there is no evidence that President Trump held a grudge or sought the destruction of anyone who beat him in an honest, straightforward proceeding. Instead, he just moved on and worked hard at his next project.

When Dr. Ronny Jackson publicly announced the results of President Trump’s physical and psychological examinations, he observed that the President had an interesting characteristic. He said that President Trump “has a very unique ability to just get up in the morning and reset.” He has the ability to leave behind the stress and issues of the previous day and start fresh each morning.

Part of President Trump’s fatal flaw is the belief that everyone is like him in this regard – but they are NOT.

People like Jeb Bush and his family, Mitt Romney, Marco Rubio, John McCain, Paul Ryan, Barrack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Kasich, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Carly Fiorina, Bob Corker, Jeff Flake and many, many others have shown themselves to be petty, willful and vindictive to the extreme.

Aided by members of the Liberal Media, the Liberal Social Media, Liberal entertainers and various other celebrities of all kinds, themselves known to be narcissistic, mentally unstable and immature in their behavior, they have plotted the downfall of the President.

Things might have been different if President Trump had been aware of his fatal flaw and made efforts to overcome it. He could have been more sympathetic towards the childish insecurities that plagued those opposed to him. He could have been more conciliatory, perhaps given them some praise for their efforts, maybe offered them input on his plans – I suppose he could have promised to take them to the circus or given them some candy. I don’t know – whatever. The fact is he failed to deal with the emotional turmoil experienced by the losers and this led them to unite in a cabal bent on his destruction.

As of now, they appear to have been successful. But President Trump has been known to rebound from adversity in the past and may yet do so again.

Selected NOT Elected

A popular myth in American culture is that anyone can become President. No matter what your background or financial status, if you were born in the U.S. you could move into the White House. In fact, this has never been the case.

It is true that a great many Presidents began life in abject poverty – the most famous example of this is Abraham Lincoln. However, the path to the Presidency has always involved getting the assent and approval of the Establishment elite. Popular opinion has always been somewhat irrelevant – to become President of the United States, it is necessary to prove your value to the elite NOT to the people. Propaganda aside, this is the same situation that exists in virtually all other major countries in the world. For example, it is well known that in China, North Korea, Russia, Iran, even Germany, the U.K. and Canada – leaders are Selected not Elected.  But Americans have always taken pride in the conviction that, at least in their country, ANYONE can become President – everyone is equally eligible and the voice of the People is the final arbiter.

In reality, Presidents have to pass a whole series of reliability tests set forth by the Establishment, NOT the People, before they can be acceptable candidates for leadership. They have to rise up through the ranks and make it through the gauntlet of the plutocratic assembly before they are deemed qualified to run for the highest office. Now, to be fair, candidates usually come to the attention of the Establishment by being ELECTED to some, minor, initial position somewhere. And often (though, of course, not always) this minor election is actually legitimate. Once a candidate has been vetted and selected, however, the path to success is cleared.

If we eliminate all the famous generals, Vice-Presidents, Senators, Governors, Congressmen, Mayors and various other forms of approved delegates, we are left with only three of the 45 plus 1 Presidents that went directly from private citizen to the Presidency. As an example of the typical career path, Joe Biden began his political life in 1970 at the age of 27, and has NEVER had another job. Of the three Presidents not previously elected to another office, all three were businessmen, Republicans and each served only one term in office. But of these three, two were initially appointed Cabinet Secretaries in the prior administration before running for President. Howard Taft, President in 1909, was Secretary of War. And, Herbert Hoover, President in 1929, was Secretary of Commerce. That leaves only one person, Donald J. Trump, who seems to have actually fulfilled the myth that anyone could became President. Now, President Trump is wealthy, famous and media savvy which is, clearly, what accounts for his ability to bypass the Establishment selection process. He was able to speak DIRECTLY to the People, unfiltered by convention and won the White House because the People wanted him there, despite the opinion of the Elitist Swamp Goblins.

Could someone with lesser means and abilities ever accomplish this feat?

The events of the 2020 cycle indicate that the Establishment is prepared to do whatever it takes to prevent another unselected outsider from ever becoming President. What outsider would ever want to endure the constant harsh, abusive, rage filled and, even, violent assaults; the slander, liable, calumny and attempts at character assassination; the personal, legal and economic attacks on the man and his family to which President Trump was subjected for over four years?

The entire Establishment Complex, including the Plutocrats with all their financial institutions, commercial and industrial centers, the politicians, other world leaders, the Tech Giants, the mainstream media and globalist propaganda outlets, the entire Social Media network, the Military Industrial complex, the complete entertainment industry, the Education and Health Care unions, and, even, the professional sports world – all have publicly asserted and vowed that they will do all in their power to ensure that there will never be another President Trump. They have staunchly aligned themselves in opposition to free elections.

In other words, unless something drastic happens in the next few years, there will NEVER be another fair election in the United States. All future presidents will be selected and appointed by the Establishment Swamp Goblins, with no regard for the will of the people. The People will be cajoled, manipulated and deceived into accepting the results of the selection process just as they are in authoritarian regimes around the world.

This is one of the greatest losses to human freedom in the past 500 years. The myth that anyone in America can become president will, now, finally be put to rest.

Heaven help us.

Yikes!

“The devil went down to Georgia – he was looking for a soul to steal.”

And he found one – more than one – a whole State. And with the fall of Georgia, the diabolic infection spread faster than the Wuhan Flu, just the way demon worshipper Chuck Schumer foretold.

Schumer proclaimed in the street, “Now we take Georgia and then we change the WORLD.” (His handlers told him to put on his virtue signal mask and then he modified his prophesy – “Now we take Georgia and then we change AMERICA.”)

Thus, it began.

Violence in the Capital building, along with weak, incompetent, cowardly and corrupt politicians and legislators, ushered in a cold, hard suppression of FREEDOM.

Armed with cameras and smiles rioters tour the building looking for selfie locations
Look at that smile – How violent

Demon worshipper Nancy Pelosi, enraged that a mere peasant would dare to be photographed sitting in her chair, demanded BLOOD – particularly the blood of President Trump.

The nerve of this guy

Forget the hundreds of violent BLM, Antifa, Marxist and other left-wing loon led riots in Portland, Oakland, Kenosha, Washington D.C. and other liberal municipalities – those were OK! But now, someone dared to violate Pelosi’s sacred sanctum. Who knows how many blood sacrifices she needed to make to her demon masters to get that office? It doesn’t matter. It was hers, now, and no one was allowed to desecrate her possession.

I suspect that, at some point, Pelosi had a crush on President Trump (who can blame her?) – and you know what they say about a woman scorned.

With a heart full of calamitous intent, she invoked her coven and minions to take action. Demon worshiper Michelle Obama ordered Social-ist Media to ban the President of the United States of America from all platforms and the flying monkey brigade in Silicon Valley, the so-called Tech Giants and Masters of the Universe eagerly did the bidding of their High Priestess of Chaos. The President of the United States of America, universally regarded as the most powerful person on Earth, was banished from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and other viable communication platforms, thus effectively silencing his voice.

Yet, this was not enough to sate the mad, blood lust raging within Pelosi’s entrails. She DEMANDED that the President of the United States of America resign from his position just 2 weeks before his term of office was set to expire. She also has THREATENED the President of the United States of America with a new impeachment order, criminal liability and a declaration of mental incompetence if he does not bow to her Luciferian demands. And many, many of the feckless political toadies that claim membership in the D.C. Satanic grotto, shook in their urine-soaked boots and sided with the infernal demands of their mad ruler.

This, then, is where the world stands. The demonic hoards, bolstered by the Main Stream Media, tech giants, plutocrats and entertainment phonies, have revealed themselves. America is on the verge of collapse. And with a senile, compromised, Communist puppet about to assume the mantel of President, the world, itself, is on the precipice.

The stage is being set for the entrance of Antichrist.

Now, more than ever, it is time to put on the full armor of God – for what we are dealing with is not merely material enemies but spiritual powers and forces. We must prepare to stand against the infernal hosts now preparing for battle.

Wake up! Wake up anyway you can. Wake yourself up and then wake up everyone you know. The great Tribulation might be just around the corner – but there is still time to save ourselves from Perdition’s Flames if we take action.

Armor of God

New Year 2021

Happy New Year!

2021 will be the start of a whole new cycle – yet the troubles of 2020 will not be left behind. More hardships await us. Those who claim rulership of the world are now more confident then ever that pandemics are a workable tool in controlling the masses. They will certainly use this and more offensive methods to achieve their goals in the days to come.

And what, exactly, are their goals?

Surely, not sex, money and earthly power – these they have in abundance.

What can they be after?

Their goals are not merely physical. They are Meta Physical – SPIRITUAL.

In the novel 1984, the hapless protagonist is told that Big Brother, the supreme leader, desires more than mere acceptance of his authority – he wants LOVE. It is not enough to OBEY Big Brother: you must LOVE Big Brother. He demands the love of his victims even as they squirm under his boot.

What kind of “love” is this that our plutocratic, globalist, elitist overlords demand? Certainly not anything like the human love you and I might understand. This is a dark, fearful, sick sort of love only demoniacs can appreciate.

The good news is that the overlords have exposed themselves in 2020 more than ever before. We can be on our guard in 2021 to the tools of propaganda, violence, poverty and pestilence they use to manipulate and squeeze out of their victims the bitter, salty excretions they label “love.”

We can resist. But it won’t be easy and the consequences of our resistance will become more and more extreme. We must stay strong.

Ephesians 6:11 – 18 provides a blueprint for how to remain steadfast against the adversity to come.

11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the high places. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to remain standing. 14 Stand firm then, with the Belt of Truth buckled around your waist, with the Breastplate of Righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the Gospel of Peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the Shield of Faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the Helmet of Salvation and the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. 

Be alert, stay strong and keep the faith.

Wake up! Wake yourself up any way you can. Wake up and then wake up everyone else.

Love and Blessings and all good wishes for Peace Profound in the coming year.

Apollo 11

Today, July 20, 2019, marks the 50th anniversary of the famous moon landing. As far as we know this was the first time that a human set foot on another world. This was the pinnacle of human technological achievement – we did what was once considered impossible – a human was sent to the moon, walked there, and was safely returned to the Earth. Astonishing.

I remember watching this event as a child and thinking that someday I myself might walk on the moon one day, maybe I would live on Mars, maybe ordinary people like me would journey out to the stars themselves. This should have been the beginning of humanity’s epic adventure to colonize the Galaxy – to become a space faring people. Unfortunately, this did not happen. Somehow we all remained Earthbound. And worse, it doesn’t appear as though we’ve accomplished anything of note since then. All our technological developments since 1969 have really been just derivative of that Apollo mission.

We are still plagued with war, pestilence, disease, famine, poverty, crime and inhumane behavior. We are still little better than ape-like savages pelting each other with rocks and clubbing each other with tree branches. We have not evolved or grown at all in the past 50 years. We’re still just monkeys that once flew to the moon. Sure, we have Twitter and Google and an ever growing number of TV channels to keep us amused but, sadly, we have not lived up to our potential.

Maybe the next 50 years will be different. I hope so. However, I doubt that I will ever see the Earth from space. Humans woke up, for a brief moment, and then went back to sleep. Maybe it’s better that way. What could the likes of us bring to the rest of the universe other than the same confusion and frustration that we live with here at home?

Do We Need to “Perfect” the Soul?

In mysticism, there is talk of the Source – the spiritual place from which all Light, Life and Love – all aspects of the universe – emanate. All things that exist, including humans with their notion of a soul, emerged from this primary facet of the world. Eventually all things will return to the Source. The human spirit, in the fullness of time, will also re-unite with Divine Spirit and become one with the Source. The reunion is an inevitable part of the process of Being and there is nothing that individuals really need to do to make it happen. Billions of ages might need to elapse before this reunion with Source is accomplished by all, but it will happen. And in that time humans as we are aware of them today will have long since moved on as a natural consequence of evolution. The Spirit, the Soul, the Divine aspect of Self, however, will continue to be recognizable. This is the piece of the Source that stays pure, despite being covered up with the mantel of materiality.

When someone stumbles upon the spiritual or mystic path, the tiny pure spot within develops a strong yearning and desire to connect again with Source. If this yearning is acknowledged it grows more intense. Then the new mystic will seek ways and means to cultivate this purer Self. It may require experimentation, trial and practice to find the tools and methods of cultivating the pure Self that is most appropriate for the individual. Sometimes the flowering of the soul is instantaneous. Meditation and contemplation seem to be common tools used by everyone on the Path. Other methods are also possible. Eventually, perhaps after many lifetimes, the pure Self within becomes strong enough to dominate the personality. As this continues, the mystic becomes less and less dependent on material things and more and more concerned with becoming one with God, the universe, the Source. At some point, the true Inner Self is able to emerge completely and exist as an individual personality without the need of a material body. This is considered a high level of spiritual perfection.

When we speak of the perfection of the soul, we mean that the soul – our true Inner Self – is strong enough to free itself from the bonds of the flesh and is then able to pursue a more direct path towards union with the Source. Eventually and without any effort, the souls of all beings will attain this perfected state through the long and natural process of evolution. The mystic, however, is eager to quicken this process and passionately strives to bring about the liberation and perfection of the soul as soon as possible. Is it necessary to perfect the soul? No. But to the mystic it is one of the few goals worth pursuing.
