The very thought
We look back on those who peopled the
Earth in the thousands of years before Christianity and believe them
to be stupid savages; yet the understanding of life and creation
among many of their number was more advanced than the modern world
in many ways.
Many of them have an effect similar to acupuncture needles. These great structures, like Stonehenge in England, are said to be the cultish monuments of a backward people, and yet what they put into place is still at work today helping to keep the battered energy grid in some kind of order.
They were excellent channelers because they were not subjected to the tidal wave of abuse, derision, and condemnation from their society when their psychic gifts were activated as children. Their parents did not say ‘Don’t be silly’, when they saw visions of entities on other frequencies or heard their communications; so they did not shut down these channels through fear and confusion.
Naturally they were subjected to manipulation
and I’m sure that some of the standing stones and circles were put
there for negative reasons, too, to disrupt the energy flows or even
to concentrate the energies at certain points to allow the
spacecraft to use the power for their activities. Not every stone
circle is positive, but overall these ancient peoples had some idea
of the Earth as a living, breathing, entity.
Although Julius Caesar’s
attempted invasion was eventually repelled, the Roman Empire
absorbed most of Britain a few years later after the year 43. They
never did succeed in suppressing most of the people of Scotland and
a wall would be built by the Emperor Hadrian to keep them out.
Christianity would later do what the Romans could not do take
control of all Scotland. The rule of the Romans had many benefits.
The country was broken up into the kingdoms of Northumbria, Mercia, Wessex, East Anglia, Essex, Kent and Sussex. They fought over yes, you’ve got it religion. The supporters of the Nicene Creed fought with those who supported the Anus view of Jesus, while the pagans fought with both both of them.
Oswy, the Christian
king of Northumbria, ‘did a Constantine’ in 664, when he called the
two Christian factions together at Whitby; after hearing the
arguments he decided that all England would follow the Pope and the
Nicene Creed. The foundations were now set for the Church to rule
the country. The rule of the Roman emperor had been replaced by the
rule of the Roman pope, so it was throughout the former Roman
Empire. Now the manipulators only had to control the papacy as they
controlled most of the known world.
These stories can still be
found in local folklore today, and because they are taken literally
the originators are looked upon as backward people. When you decode
the symbolism you can see that they were far from backward. They
were merely trying to pass on knowledge in ways that would not get
them executed by those who were backward - the representatives of
the Christian religion.
Groups of weaker people would gathered behind a strong personality (not necessarily an enlightened one by any means), and all who followed him and did whatever he asked were given his protection. The division had arrived between the freeman and the bondsman, those who were no more than slaves. The leaders would become known as the lord or the king and they were considered to be the representatives of God.
The noblemen were the upper classes. Christianity was one of the main instigators and supporters of this system which turned most people into the slaves of the few and it was the. same across Europe. The kings and noblemen took over the land, and they gave great wealth to the Church in their misguided belief, encouraged by the Church, that they were buying a place in heaven.
manor or the monastery was now the authority which the communities
of serfs had to obey. In time Britain was divided into shires ruled
by ealdormen (later known as earls), and under them were the
(later barons). These, along with the most powerful priests, became
the nobility. It is from these beginnings and the creation of slaves
that the class system emerged which is still with us today, with its
landed gentry, nobility, Church and clergy, separated from the mass
of the people by either wealth or privilege, often both.
Wessex became dominant in England when it defeated the Mercians in 825 and King Egbert of Wessex controlled all of England. He was, in effect if not name, the first English king. Ethelwulf followed, and then came Alfred the Great. He was by far the most enlightened ruler of his time encouraging, among other things, the translation of Latin literature into English.
Through it all the Church prospered. Kingdoms and nobles may come and go, but the Church was always there, adding with every dying king and noble to its now breathtaking fortune of land and riches.
Christianity was now in control of
England, and so was the Brotherhood.
The Pope, William, and brotherhood societies plotted the invasion of England and the Papacy supplied the funds. William believed he was doing it for God and he carried the Pope’s banners into battle, just as the pagan armies had carried images of their gods into the fray.
Nothing had changed except the emblem.
defeated the English army and became king. Now the Pope would have a
subservient England along with France and Germany. French became the
language of England and this gradually fused with the various other
languages spoken on the islands, Celtic, Anglo-Saxon, Latin, and
Danish, to create the English tongue we recognize today.
It was he who organized a system of tithes to be paid to the Church by every landowner in the country. Even the poorest were not exempt and they paid up in their ignorance and fear that the priests could consign them to hell forever more. To this day the landowners of England still have to pay this tithe to the Church, even if they think that Christianity is a load of baloney. Opposition in the 1930s would change the nature of the payment, but it is still paid in another way. In 1936 the tithes were replaced by a fixed annual payment to be charged until October 1996.
These fees are to pay for
the three per cent of Government stock handed over to the Church
authorities in exchange for them conceding their right to the
tithes. This means, of course, that we are all paying for the Church
in the costs added by the landowners to the price of their produce.
All this because the priests frightened people through violence or
hell and damnation into handing over their lands during a period of
nearly a thousand years.
I think at least the great majority had good intent, and if they were playing the Brotherhood’s game, it was probably mostly by ignorance, not malice. Roger Bacon, an English Franciscan friar of the 13th century wrote that people should cease to be ruled by dogma and authority and think for themselves.
He had an advanced understanding for his time of science and he was confined by the Church because of his views. Others followed and their numbers grew until it exploded into the period called the Renaissance or ‘new birth’. The key to what followed was the coming of the printing press to Europe. The means to make paper had been discovered by the Chinese, taken on by the Moslems and, though them, reached the Italians.
The idea of printing with movable
type also goes back to China and in the 1470s William Caxton was
setting up his printing press in Westminster and producing the first
book by this method in England. Caxton translated books from French
and Latin into English and the exchange of knowledge began to flow
all over Europe, although the Church would seek to suppress this at
The spread of Greek literature
reached England, France, and Germany. When the Turks took
Constantinople there was an exodus of Greeks to Italy with yet more
books, manuscripts, and knowledge. The works of the Moslem
scientists and the knowledge gathered at the time of the open-minded
rulers in Baghdad found its way to Italy and Europe.
The obvious corruption, vice, and violence of the Church was
reducing its authority and then came the Great Schism when there
were two popes, one ruling from Rome and the other from Avignon.
This came about because the Italian Church believed that only an
Italian should be pope and for thirty-eight years there were two
popes, each with their own army plundering and pillaging wherever
The Church compiled an index on all banned literature which comprised, of course, of everything that challenged its doctrines. The Inquisition increased its work rate. But much as the Roman Church tried to close the door again on knowledge, changes were now inevitable. There had been growing discontent with the excesses of the papacy and the priests. he papacy went to the highest bidder. The post gave the occupant control of incredible wealth and real estate. Kings bowed to the power of Rome and the inquisition secured the submission of the masses. The Church also supported the feudal system of masters and serfs. The reaction against all this had been a long time coming.
The pressure for change had gathered slowly, and then more quickly through these centuries of fear and subservience. The bubonic plague called the Black Death was dramatically to reduce the population of the world, and in Europe alone about a quarter of the population died. I have seen it speculated that the Black Death and other plagues might have been created by a version of extra-terrestrial germ warfare.
Certainly it would seem that bright lights in the sky and foul smelling mists were reported quite often before the plague struck a community. Reports of ‘comets’ at that time could easily have been spacecraft, and historians have written of comets trailing behind them gases that killed trees and the lands fertility.
We now often symbolize death with a picture of a skeleton
holding a scythe; this comes from the numerous reports across Europe
of strange men in black holding ‘scythes’ who appeared in a town or
village before people fell ill with the black death. What were these
‘scythes’? Whatever the cause of the plague, it did have a long term
impact in changing the status quo.
The centuries of blind and
mass obedience to the Church and its masters were being questioned
during this period from the 14th to 17th centuries. Events and the
growth of knowledge was beginning the process of liberation from
Church control, a process that is only reaching fruition today in
what you might call the Spiritual Renaissance or the Light Age.
Wycliffe advocated that the scriptures were the only foundation of religious knowledge and that the pope was not the head of the Church. He dismissed the idea of transubstantiation - the belief that bread and wine can be converted into the body and blood of Christ during the Eucharist ceremony. He had the Bible translated into English and sent out supporters to expound his views.
The priests would later persuade Henry IV to
burning of all heretics, including Wycliffe’s supporters. By then he
had died, but the priests had his bones exhumed from a churchyard in
Lutterworth, Leicestershire, where he had been had been parish
priest. They did not want his skeleton polluting holy ground. The
more Rome sought to deal violently with protesters, the more
protests they had to deal with.
could begin to re-interpret the texts for themselves. The Church
knew the consequences of this and among their desperate efforts to
suppress knowledge of the Bible’s true content was to murder by
burning at the stake, William Tyndale. His heresy had been to begin
to translate the New Testament into English. When people did have
the opportunity to read the Bible there was a desire for a return to
the simplicity of the Scriptures and the Protestant movement began.
This brought about the Reformation when the Protestants broke away
from the Catholic Church.
As he once wrote:
His hatred of reason and opened minded research was equally extreme. In one sermon he said that his followers should throw spit in the face of reason, because she was the Devil’s whore, rotten with the itch of leprosy, and ought to be kept in the toilet. Nice man.
He may have complained about papal and clerical indulgences, but like the other Protestants, he still believed the nonsense which Jerome and others had edited into the Bible and all the other inaccuracies that had been in the texts to start with. Other forms of Protestant interpretation of the Bible followed such as Calvinism, the product of the Frenchmen John Calvin.
He was as much a dictator as Luther and the Popes. Religion - and the Brotherhood -seem to breed such people.
Calvin’s obnoxious creed was to have severe consequences in England and America because it was a major influence on the beliefs of the Puritans, of which more later. Calvin promoted the idea, like Luther, that you could not ensure eternal salvation by the way you lived your life or by ‘good works’.
It could only come by faith in
Jesus as your savior. Even the Roman Catholic Church wasn’t quite
that extreme, but Calvin went even further. He said that whether we
were to be ‘saved’ or not was decided by God before we were born! He
called this idea predestination. The chosen few who were selected by
God for eternal salvation had a duty, he said, to suppress the sin
of the condemned masses. It was, in other words, a license for
This comes from a quote attributed to Jesus in the Bible which was, in fact, an addition by one of the many forgers and relates to a pagan belief:
Over the interpretation of this forgery whole wars were fought. The Protestant Movement came to England in a rather unusual way. Henry VIII wanted a son and heir, but his first wife Catherine of Aragon could only bear him a daughter, Mary.
He decided to divorce her and asked Pope Clement VII to sanction it. He refused. Henry was a committed Catholic and had condemned the Protestants in Europe to such an extent that the Pope had awarded him the title Defender of the Faith which British monarchs still hold to this day.
This is ironic, because today they are Protestant monarchs defending that faith under a title given by a Roman Catholic pope for defending his faith! You’ve got to chuckle, really. Henry was such a defender of the Catholic faith he ordered that all who denied it were to be burned at the stake. But the opposition to his divorce changed all that.
He insisted that his parliament vote into being a Church of
England independent of Rome, and he made himself the head of the
English Church. When that was done the Archbishop of Canterbury,
Thomas Cranmer, sanctioned his divorce from Catherine. Cranmer
replaced Cardinal Wolsey as England’s most influential churchman,
because Wolsey had failed to secure his divorce. He was summoned to
London to be tried for treason, but died on the way at Leicester
When that didn’t work they found some excuse to take them. In their early days, the monasteries had made a positive contribution when compared with the murder and misery in other areas of Christendom, but now they were just as bad. Henry had long coveted their wealth and he took his opportunity to abolish them and take their possessions.
He was so short of money that he had to sell
much of the land he acquired and this was the start of the period of
the country squire and gentry. These were the wealthy men who bought
the massive estates once owned, or rather stolen, by the Church, and
they built upon them their manor houses that have become such a part
of the English countryside.
Only Jane Seymour bore him a son, who’ became Edward VI at the age of only nine when Henry died in 1547. Edward was king in name only with the Protestant Duke of Somerset the real power behind the throne. Edward himself died at 15 and he was succeeded by Mary, Henry’s daughter by Catherine of Aragon. She was a staunch Roman Catholic and she began a bloody purge against Protestants which was so savage she was given the name ‘Bloody Mary’.
Edward had been persuaded by the Duke of Somerset to leave the throne to Henry’s great grand-daughter, Lady Jane Grey, who was a Protestant supporter, but Mary had her executed and took the throne. Mary married Philip of Spain who wished to have a peaceful relationship with England, so that his ships could pass along the English Channel without hindrance.
The Pope again became head of the Church of England. But another about-turn was imminent. With Mary’s death came Elizabeth I, the daughter of Anne Boleyn, and she became queen at the age of 25. Her mother had been a Protestant and she accepted that faith.
The Roman Catholic Church opposed her
succession because, it said, she was an illegitimate child with her
father’s divorce from Catherine of Aragon not recognized by the
Pope. She ignored them and restored the Protestant Church of England
with herself as its Supreme Head. A bloody purge was launched
against Catholics. The Queen ordered the torture and death of so
many Irish Catholics they gave her the title ‘Bloody Elizabeth’.
All but a handful of wars have been caused by religion or the perceived superiority of the ancestral line of one group or nation’s physical bodies, when in truth they are just temporary vehicles for our consciousness to experience this level. But let us take another angle on the events that followed the Reformation.
I mentioned earlier that the
Brotherhood had a long term aim of using religion for its own ends
and then moving on to the next stage, to replace religion, which
largely abused the knowledge of the spirit, with a godless science
which convinced the mass of the people that the spirit did not even
exist. Part of this plan was to dismantle the power of the Roman
Catholic Church and create more factions within the Christian
religion. Even if they did not actually start the Reformation - and
I believe they did - they certainly took advantage of it.
Both were classic secret societies in the manner I have outlined, and they began covertly to introduce a number of religious movements around Europe. One was called the Friends of God led by Rulman Merswin, a rich banker, who was conned by the Brotherhood into believing he had been chosen by God to preach his message because the Pope could no longer be trusted to it. What’s more God would soon punish humanity for its sin, he was told.
The End Of The World and the Day of Judgment is
another Brotherhood theme. The Friends of God was a mind control
cult that accepted only total obedience from its followers. It
gained many supporters who were fed up with the corruption in the
Roman Catholic Church, and eventually Merswin had a ‘revelation’
that he should hand over his religion lock, stock, and barrel to
another branch of the Brotherhood,
probably linked to freemasonry, called the Order of St John.
He was close to many members of the Illuminati and the Rosicrucians, and they would have been using him, with or without his knowledge, to break the overwhelming power of the Roman Catholic Church. The Vatican was, itself, a Brotherhood tool, but none is allowed to get too powerful, and all are expendable when the time is right.
These two Christian creeds of Protestant and Catholic were now to be used, as we have already seen, to stimulate enormous conflict. But it is important to emphasize that the Brotherhood was not in total control of all events. I am sure they have had some monumental failures in their time, as people have not reacted in the way they expected, or some of their number did not do as they were told once they realized what the game plan was. I have no doubt that some of their wars have not had the outcome they always hoped for.
I feel, too, that there have been many periods when the volunteer consciousness has infiltrated these movements and tried to undermine and change them from within and I believe that behind the scenes this was happening during the time of Sir Francis Bacon who became the highest executive of the Rosicrucian Order in England. It was during his lifetime in the early 1 600s that the teachings of the order began to include some references to the need for personal spiritual salvation by taking control of our own thinking and actions, and some of these are still reflected in that order.
The fact that someone in history was a
member of a secret society tells us nothing. It is the agenda they
were working to that matters, and it wasn’t always negative; far
from it. What I am sure about, however, is that from the Reformation
onwards, the Brotherhood takeover by the Luciferic consciousness was
virtually complete, and its power to manipulate events was seen to
reach new heights.
I list some of them here and it is worth reading them carefully because all would-be Anglican clergy still have to swear their agreement with every word that follows before they are accepted into the priesthood:
This is the faith that to this day is taught by law in the schools
of Britain and other countries and is given guaranteed, no
questions-asked, air-time by the BBC which claims to be an
independent organization. It is an outrage. If it wasn’t so tragic
it would make a comedy series.
Pius V was the man who was burning, hanging and beheading the religious reformers in Italy. Philip was further motivated in his duty by the terrible atrocities committed against the Catholics of England and Ireland. He believed that such atrocities should only be committed against Protestants. But his Armada was defeated in the English Channel and the power of Rome and Spain was dimmed. The foothold the Protestant Faith had won in Europe was secured.
If the Spanish had conquered
England the whole Protestant movement might have collapsed. When
Elizabeth died in 1603, England and Scotland united under one
monarch. They had been in conflict over thousands of years, but now
James Vi of Scotland became James I of England, too. The Kingdom was
united - on paper at least.
I feel that at this
time there was a secret society operating within a secret society
and that when in the end the Brotherhood realized what was going on
the Bacons and others were stopped by a campaign of covert killings
and trumped up charges that saw Francis sent to jail. When you look
at the life of Sir Francis Bacon nothing is quite what it seems to
be on the surface. Every effort to raise the human condition and its
understanding of life was viciously opposed by the Church,
Protestant and Catholic, and so many suffered all over the world for
seeking and exchanging knowledge.
This confirmed the findings of Nicolaus Copernicus, a Polish scientist who had died in 1543. Copernicus had continued the work begun nearly 2,000 years earlier by Pythagoras and others. Copernicus had been pilloried by the Church for his ‘heresy’ and his work suppressed. Almost a century later the same was to happen to Galileo. It could well be that he was a reincarnation of Copernicus.
Galileo was tried for heresy in 1632 by the Inquisition for writing a book supporting the Copernicus theory. A document was falsified by the Church to back up the case against him. He was found guilty of ‘holding and teaching the Copernicus doctrine’ (i.e. saying the Earth goes around the Sun and is not the centre of the Universe). Galileo escaped the most extreme methods of the Inquisition, but he was placed under house arrest for the last eight years of his life.
You can see how
dogmatic religion has held back human evolution and understanding.
It was only in this decade that the Roman Catholic Church officially
admitted that Galileo was right!! It is interesting to note that
some of his fiercest critics were other academics and scientists who
realized the consequences of his findings for their power and
influence. The same attitude is still prevalent today.
Nostradamus, who lived in Southern France, is the most famous of them. I feel he was predicting what would happen if humanity continued on the path it had embarked upon. By tuning your consciousness to those vibrations of thought energy that retain Creation’s eternal memory, you can ‘see’ the past with your psychic vision or channel information about it. You can experience something of a past life or see a past event. In the same way you can ‘see’ the future. I believe that consciousness is constantly projecting forward how things will be on the basis of what has happened (the past) and what is happening (the present).
From these sources, the collective consciousness projects forward what will happen if those same trends continue. So the future exists as the past exists in thought energy that is outside of our version and understanding of space and time. When people tune to that vibration, they are accessing information about the projected future, not necessarily the future as it will be.
I believe this was the information that Nostradamus was tuning to for his famous predictions and he was also accessing knowledge of the plan for the transformation of human consciousness in the time we are living in now as we progress into the Photon Beam.
Obviously, the closer the event is to the present
the more likely it is to happen as projected. But the further into
the future you go, the more time there is for humans to change and
therefore to change the future. It is a commentary on the scale of
humanity’s imprisonment of thought that the outcome is unfolding
very much along the lines that Nostradamus predicted, but it doesn’t
have to. We can change it.
People didn’t want to have all that gold and silver lying around waiting to be stolen, so it became the custom to deposit these metals with those who had strong rooms where it would be safe. Many of these strong rooms were owned by goldsmiths. The goldsmith would give receipts to the customer for the value of the deposit and when these were returned they would hand back that amount of precious metals.
The customers began to use these receipts as forms of exchange because they were more convenient than moving the metals around and the goldsmiths, and other strong room owners realized that only a small number of these receipts were returned to them at any one time by people coming to collect their metals deposits. So why could they not issue receipts to people who didn’t actually own any of the metals and then charge them interest for the privilege? What a great idea.
You could lend money on metal owned by
someone else and charge a fee for doing it! The receipt (money) was
worthless if all the owners of your metal deposits wanted them
returned at the same time, but as this never happened you were
laughing, unless you issued far too many notes.
Type in a few figures on a computer screen, move that number to a
person’s account on another part of the computer programme, and from
that moment you can start charging that person interest on money
that isn’t yours, and doesn’t physically exist. More than that, if a
person falls behind in the interest payments on money you don’t own
and doesn’t exist, you can take their home and possessions that do
exist, and even have them sent to prison.
It is utterly insane for banks under no government control to be given this power to create money out of nothing, but the Brotherhood societies, at the highest level in this case, brought this into being and manipulate entire nations and continents with it day after day. It has also allowed more wars to be fought and prolonged, because instead of being limited to the assets a country owned, the bankers could now issue pieces of paper to keep the conflict going.
Then, after the war, the governments were even further in debt and their people would have to suffer more hardships if their country was going to pay back the banks for the money that did not exist. Now wars not only became wonderful tools of control for the Brotherhood, they were fantastic ways to increase their wealth.
They couldn’t lose. They would lend invented money to both sides, charge them interest on it, and then lend them more invented money to rebuild the countries that had been devastated by those wars. And we, men and women of the world, continue to put up with it!
The first major bank of this kind was the
Bank of Amsterdam set
up in the early 1600s and it immediately began to lend to the Dutch
government to finance more wars. The Bank of England followed in
1694 and became the model for all the others.
It would still take many centuries to arrive and the
Church would battle to prevent it, but the cracks had appeared in
their wall of suppression and the flood was sure to follow.
The Americas evolved with the thousands of tribes which developed with their diverse cultures and beliefs. As in the rest of world, some would grow and conquer others to create empires. One of these was the Aztecs in what we call Mexico. They were advanced in that they built fantastic pyramids and cities, as did many peoples of the Americas, but at the same time they slaughtered untold thousands in sacrifices to their gods at the whim of the priests.
You can see how civilizations
across the world were being affected by some global consciousness or
the same extra-terrestrial races that encouraged them to believe the
of Atlantis, Sumer, Babylon and Egypt apply equally to the Americas.
The Maya pyramids were faced with limestone as was the Great Pyramid at Giza, and the beliefs in mummifying bodies and the nature of life after death were similar. I think there is an excellent chance that the same ET races were responsible for developing both civilizations in their early days.
But the Mayan civilization lasted for thousands of years and we should not fall into the trap of thinking it was always the same. Some Mayans apparently practiced human sacrifice, but this was not general. These things change. What is termed the Classic Mayan period is reckoned to have been from about 435 to 830AD, when their culture seems to have stopped quite abruptly.
The Maya settled on the land now known as Guatemala and north to Yucatan and in that classic period they devised a measurement of time very different to our own today. It related to natural energy cycles and they devised a mathematical system of numbers and symbols to work out the cycles and translate them into a form of language. The Maya, some of whom were from highly evolved Volunteer consciousness, left records of their calendar and mathematical system.
They believed that the Earth began a new cycle of evolution in 3113Bc and that this would be completed in 2012. This would link in very well with what I am saying about the Photon Beam and the many prophecies through the ages of great change at this time. Numbers and symbols can be found on the ruins and artifacts of many ancient civilizations.
As we are now beginning to understand again,
everything is an energy, numbers and symbols included. Numbers and
symbols represent certain energy vibrations and the Mayan system was
a mathematical code for energies and their cycles.
At their peak the Incas controlled an area of 2,000 miles by
200, and they became motivated by power, wealth, and expansion as
the original understanding was lost. The choice of location for
these volunteer incarnations was linked to the points on the energy
grid which needed to be worked on. The region that includes Lake
Titicaca, Sun Island, Cusco, Machu Picchu, and the Sacred Valley of
the Incas, is one of the most powerful on the planet.
Firstly information and inspiration could be
brought down to this level. This showed itself in those who
challenged the bigotry of religion and authority and advanced human
understanding through philosophy and scientific discovery. Secondly,
they were open channels to ground powerful energies and pass them
into the grid.
Obviously, they would not have understood exactly what they were doing within the confines of the physical form, but the connection with the higher self was strong enough for them to do what was necessary on the physical level. They passed on their understanding in legends and stories which contained many truths portrayed symbolically and many myths, too, I’m sure.
More than anything they had a respect for the Earth and the rest of
Creation, which led them to take from nature only what they believed
they needed. Every civilization has its ‘classic’ periods as with
the Maya when the volunteer consciousness was there in numbers for a
specific time and task, and so it was with the Native American
tribes through the centuries.
The Indian tribes fought each other as inherited distrust and hatred spanned the generations and being a brave warrior was the way male status was often measured. It was usually the elders who had seen the consequences of this through their lives who argued against such conflict.
Part of a famous speech by Chief Seattle of the Dwamish Indians highlighted this. As a young man he was renowned as a courageous warrior and leader. But in his late fifties or early sixties when the white settlers had taken over the United States he is reported to have said:
This is an important point. We should not feel guilty about what we have done or believed in the past. When we are born into a culture of whatever kind it may be, we become subject to its conditioning. When our consciousness looks out through the eyes of the physical form as a child it is bound to be affected fundamentally by what it sees and is told.
If the young braves were judged by their courage as warriors and their fighting abilities, most children would take on those same values. A child does not come out of the womb and say I want to be a vegetarian. He or she will eat meat if that is what the family puts on the plate. No matter how evolved the consciousness, it takes time to break through the illusions, indoctrinations, and inherited ‘values’ of this physical world.
But there comes a point when you have seen enough for the excuse of indoctrination to be no longer valid. That is when we face the choice of following our instincts or taking the apparently easy route of least resistance and continue to follow the indoctrination.
Age and experience can,
as with Chief Seattle, bring wisdom and understanding. But as we
also see in millions of others the years can increase the power of
that indoctrination. Witness the attitudes of many older people
today for evidence of that.
travels of Marco Polo and others had revealed the existence of the
East and Columbus believed that if he sailed West he would sail
around the world to reach India and Asia. He planned his epic
journey, but could find no enthusiasm or financial support from his
own people. The Kings of Portugal and Spain also turned him down,
and in Spain the Church told him his ideas were impossible because
they were contrary to Scripture. Henry VII of England also said no.
Columbus became governor of the lands he found. Not only did he take
them from the native population, he introduced slavery and treated
the people with the sort of Christian goodwill that is so widely
documented in this book. Columbus was a devout Christian, always
saying prayers, and his brutality against the natives had the full
support of the priests who had travelled with him. Christianity
which had spread its darkness across the ‘old’ world had now reached
In 1519, Magellan, another native of Portugal, led an attempt to sail around the World. He died on the journey, but others completed the circumnavigation, so proving that the planet was indeed a sphere. These journeys and others increased the knowledge of geography and horizons were widened in all directions. Over the next four centuries the powerful countries of Europe would battle for the ownership of distant lands throughout Africa, Asia and the Americas.
It was the greatest act of piracy and robbery the world has ever
seen. The British, Dutch, French, Belgians, Spanish, Portuguese, and
others plundered the planet imposing their culture and religion on
the native peoples, mostly killing or banishing into slavery all who
resisted. Australia and New Zealand were found and ‘Christianized’.
The beliefs surrounding him are yet more compelling evidence of a common source connecting the Middle East and the Americas. He was said to have been born to a virgin, Chimalman, who was told by a heavenly messenger that she would conceive a son without sexual intercourse. Quetzalcohatl was also said to have been tempted by the devil, to have fasted for forty days and to have been crucified.
But Montezuma’s people were soon to realize that Cortez was no second coming of this god. Once he saw the wealth and magnificence of the culture, he set about killing thousands to force upon them Spanish rule and Christianity. Among their conquests were the lands of the Maya which had continued to be populated by those who came after the Classic Mayan period.
Accept gentle Jesus as your savior or we slaughter you, was the basic message of the invading Europeans. One Spanish historian of the time estimated that twelve million natives of South America alone were killed after the Europeans landed and an even greater number became slaves. It was claimed with pride that Great Britain owned so many countries that the Sun never set on the British Empire.
This glorious empire was, like all of its kind, a
means to exploit and dominate for reasons of riches, resources, and
trade. I would not suggest that everything the Europeans did in
these countries was negative and without merit, but the motivation
and imposition behind these conquests was appalling. The
consequences of this occupation are still being unraveled.
Your God was always on your side and whatever you did you did for him.
As long as you had been baptized and believed in St Paul’s saviour-god called Jesus Christ you were guaranteed a place in heaven no matter what you did.
Indeed it is even in the Articles of Faith of the Church of England to this day that good deeds are not the way to salvation.
Add to that the condemnation of heathens in the Bible and the belief that all non-Christians, even non-believers in your faction of Christianity, were heathens and you can see how these native peoples had no chance of humane treatment from the great majority of invaders.
As one of the Psalms says:
We are highlighting in this chapter the development of the Americas and particularly North America which was to become in the form of the United States the most powerful nation on the planet. The Spanish and Portuguese plundered most of South America, where they destroyed the native culture and beliefs and introduced Christianity in the form of Roman Catholicism, that dark creed which still enslaves the minds of millions on that continent through fear and guilt.
North America became largely the property of the English and French although Pope Alexander VI had ‘given’ the whole of the Americas to Spain and Portugal, especially Spain (He was a Spaniard). Four years after Columbus discovered the West Indies, two Venetians based in Bristol, England, sailed with the backing of Henry VII for North America. They were John and Sebastian Cabot, father and son, and they followed the route taken by earlier explorers like the Vikings who had landed in the New York area five hundred years before.
They called it Vinland.
His ambition was to convert the native tribes to Roman Catholicism and expand the fur trade, which involved the native peoples giving him furs in exchange for guns and booze.
intervention started wars between the tribes and caused great
disruption. But he did not convert them to Christianity, not least
because the Catholics and Protestants in his midst spend most of
their time fighting each other. Other Christian missionaries who
tried to force their religion upon the Indians were killed by the
very guns that had been traded for the furs.
Under James I, who followed Elizabeth, Puritans and Presbyterians were persecuted because James was a staunch Anglican. He also ordered a gruesome purge against ‘witches’ (mediums) and his treatment of Roman Catholics was so terrible, two of their number, Guy Fawkes and Robert Catesby, organized the failed Gunpowder Plot of 1605 to assassinate him.
It was James I who took part of Northern Ireland from the Catholics and encouraged it to be settled by England and Scottish Protestants. This set in motion the centuries of hatred and conflict between the two Christian fractions that created a sort of religious apartheid that still continues.
Britain under James I was not a good place to be unless you were an Anglican, and the exodus to America grew. Many Puritans settled in a place they called New England where they matched the violence and intolerance shown to them in Europe with their own treatment of the Indians and others who did not share their misguided Faith. In Virginia, tobacco was the currency and people were fined 50lbs of tobacco for not attending church, 2000lbs for not having their child baptized, and 5,000lbs for entertaining a Quaker.
Death is no cure for ignorance and neither is a journey across the Atlantic. This led William Penn, a compassionate Quaker, to found Pennsylvania in 1682, on land given to him by Charles II in exchange for the money lent to him by Penn’s father. He opened his lands to Quakers and all persecuted Nonconformists, and he made friends with the Indians.
showed how they could live together to their mutual benefit. The
Indians also gave a piece of land to Roger Williams who founded the
State of Rhode Island as a haven of peace and religious tolerance.
Mostly, however, the North American settlers treated the Indians and
people of differing beliefs as heathen with no dignity or rights
Brotherhood-style secret societies with the familiar initiations and methods were already at work in the Americas before the European invasion, but after that their numbers simply exploded and they were extremely involved in the events before the American War of Independence. Freemasonry abounded and George Washington was a freemason, initiated into the Craft at the age of twenty in 1752.
As an officer in the colonial army, he is believed by some historians to have ordered the killing of French troops in the Ohio Valley when there was no military justification, let alone a moral one. This created more conflict between the British and French which flared in Europe as the bitter and bloody Seven Years War. This claimed around a million military and civilian casualties and left both countries with enormous debts to the money inventors, the banking elite controlled by the Brotherhood.
There was also the cost of keeping an army in America. All this led the British to levy higher taxation on her people, and duties on goods in the American colonies, to service the debt, and hence you had the disputes that fuelled the War of Independence. The resistance in the colonies was so fierce that the British withdrew the new duties, except for those on tea. The colonists were by now whipped up by the Freemason lodges masquerading as revolutionary groups.
Members of the St Andrews
Lodge in Boston dressed up as Indians and threw tea into the harbor
in protest at the duty and no matter what the British had done, it
was too late. The Brotherhood wanted independence for America for
longer term motives and that was the way it was going to be. It is
pretty clear that the Freemasons had been working to stir up
revolution against the British for at least ten years before the war
Masons like Washington and Franklin had the symbol of the All Seeing Eye sewn onto their sheepskin Masonic aprons. This was without question a Brotherhood revolution. Independence was declared in 1776, although the war went on for some years after that, until the decisive Battle of Yorktown in 1781 settled the issue of who would rule the country. The Americans were supported with arms and resources by the French after one of the revolutionaries, the freemason, Benjamin Franklin, persuaded them to help.
The French were looking for some revenge for
their defeats by the British and even if they were not the
Brotherhood network in France would have made sure help was
forthcoming. Franklin secured the services in France of the German
freemason Baron von Steuben who had served in the army of Frederick
the Great of Prussia and he was to play a major part in turning the
American army into a fighting force. With victory secured the
Declaration of Independence severed ties with Britain.
This refers to the Brotherhood’s ‘Great work of ages’ and it is expressed today as The New World Order. This part of Barton’s design is included in the United States Great Seal today, and on the dollar bill. The phoenix, another Egyptian Brotherhood symbol was also on the original seal before it was later replaced by the Eagle.
American Freemasonry broke away from its ‘Mother Lodge’ in England after independence and it adopted the English York Rite of Freemasonry with its ten degrees of initiation and most significantly, the Scottish Rite, with its thirty-three degrees. The Scottish rite in particular has had a fundamental influence on American politics, economics, and foreign policy from that time on.
The Brotherhood controls the American banks and the Federal Reserve, their version of the bank of England, which creates money out of nothing and plays the tune to which the elected politicians have to dance. That is not to say that all the revolutionaries were involved in skullduggery and wished to bring about this abuse of freedom or that the desire for revolution was wrong. Why should one country own another in that way?
Most if not
all the revolutionaries would have believed they were doing the
right thing for the right reasons, but who was controlling their
thinking from the perspective of another agenda? It is not always
the event itself that is wrong, but the hidden agenda behind it.
Thomas Paine was born the son of a Norfolk
Quaker in 1736. His outspoken support of the oppressed in England
and his opposition to religion made him highly unpopular with the
authorities and he went to America to support the people in their
dispute with the British Parliament and King George III. He fought
on the American side and published a pamphlet called ‘Common Sense’
which called for complete independence for the colonies and not some
diluted compromise that would still leave them under British rule.
Another pamphlet, ‘The Crisis’, motivated the people to go on when
the situation looked bleak. His words were widely read and they are
credited with having a significant impact on the course of the War.
He wrote The Rights of Man in 1791 which exposed the corruption and nonsense of Church, monarch, and state, while setting out an alternative society based on democracy, educ4ion and equal rights for all. This was the time after the French Revolution when the British gentry were terrified of a people’s rebellion. A writ was issued for his arrest, but his work circulated rapidly among the poor who at last had someone speaking for them.
Anyone found publishing or possessing The Rights of Man was jailed or banished and effigies of Paine with a rope around his neck were carried through the streets by those whose power he threatened. He was a man ahead of his time, but such men are vital to light the fuse which later explodes into fundamental change. Paine escaped to France where he was elected to the new French Assembly. He was appointed to the committee putting together a new French Constitution and he argued that there should be no bloodshed or reprisals against the monarchy and aristocracy. He wanted to destroy the institutions of repression, not kill the people in them.
When he voted against the killing of King Louis XVI he was arrested and sentenced to death.
Here we are again with one tyranny and rule by fear replacing another. George Washington was asked for help, but refused and it took the efforts of others to win his release a year later. During his captivity he wrote his book, The Age of Reason, which dismantled the preposterous claims of Christianity which he said were not the work of God, but of stupid men.
His book said of the Bible:
Thomas Paine was a great, great, man. ‘The world is my country and to do good is my religion’, he once said, and the only trinity he had any time for was Truth, Liberty, and Justice.
There have been few more decent, loving, brave, and wise people on this planet. Yet history has largely forgotten him because no juvenile religion was set up in his name. In Christendom you could call for political liberty if it suited the people, but not for religious liberty.
When Paine returned to America after the publication of the book he was shunned by those he had helped to free. In some areas it was even dangerous for him to walk down the street. But then he was used to religious opposition in America, because in earlier times they had opposed his opposition to slavery.
The United States was built on the backs of black slaves from Africa. Slavery had been part of human life through most of history and some of the Popes were the biggest slave owners of their day. The idea of the chosen ones having God’s permission to own the heathens was a constant justification.
In the Bible we read:
That is from Leviticus, and these are the words of St Paul:
The Christian creed had no problem with slavery. It was God’s will. Hundreds of thousands of native Africans were captured by the slave ships of Britain, America, and elsewhere and taken to the New World to be sold to the highest bidder.
The hymn writer, John Newton, was the master on a slave ship and from his pen came How sweet the name of Jesus sounds in a believer’s ear. Opponents to this stunning inhumanity called slavery were hung, shot, and burned alive by the slave owning mobs and sermons were made in support of both slavery and the violence against protesters. It was a major offence to teach a slave to read, and there were discussions on whether it was best to work a slave to death or use them more sparingly so they would last longer. (The same debate went on in relation to the Jews in Nazi Germany).
The law allowed slaves to be flogged to death and
shot if they refused to accept the flogging. Their tongues and eyes
were cut out on many occasions and they were branded if they tried
to escape. The British were at the heart of this trade and many
British companies grew wealthy on it. The British built forts off
the African Coast to protect the slave traffic and they gave grants
of free land in the West Indies on condition that at least four
negro slaves were kept for every hundred acres.
He became a martyr remembered by the famous
song in which ‘his soul goes marching on’. William Lloyd Garrison
published The Liberator which highlighted the treatment of the
slaves and was sent to prison for his opinions, but it roused yet
more to the cause. Harriet Beecher Stowe wrote her book, Uncle Tom’s
Cabin, published in 1852, telling the stories she had heard from the
slaves who had escaped. The Pope ordered the book to be banned and
the clergy condemned its publication.
Lincoln, whose desire for the end of slavery was not as fierce as some, offered to allow it to continue if the South would return, but they didn’t trust him. The Civil War ensued, but contrary to what is widely believed it was not about the plight of slaves, but the unity of the country. It was like most conflicts, justified by a contradiction. Lincoln and his supporters went to war to preserve the union under the banner of freedom.
But while the behavior of
the Southern States was appalling to the slaves, they had every
right under the Constitution to withdraw from the union. Lincoln and
the North fought to deny them that right. The emancipation of slaves
was a by-product of the war, not the motivation behind it. Slavery
continued in the North until the war was over, and legislation to
free Southern slaves during the war was enacted only because it was
claimed that the Southerners were no longer United States citizens,
and therefore had lost their rights to own slaves as those in the
North continued to do. The war was about the withdrawal from the
Union by the Southern States, caused by disagreements over slavery.
It was not about slavery as such.
The United States was now a nation, as
were Germany and Italy in the wake of their civil wars which
happened in this same period. The USA would produce great inventors
and many skilled in trade and business as they exploited and
directed the Industrial Revolution to become the world’s most
White men did indeed speak with forked tongue when they made their promises to the Indians which were never kept. The story of the genocide of the native Americans by the settlers from Europe is one of the most atrocious episodes in the long and sorry tale of man’s inhumanity to man. The reality of these events is only now beginning to be told in films like ‘Dances With Wolves’ and the truth is breaking through the Hollywood and government propaganda of most of this century which portrayed the Indians as savages and the God-fearing settlers as the agents of freedom and civilization.
In Australia and the
other countries where the invading Christians occupied native lands
by force and brutality the truth of these times is being more widely
Just to complicate matters there was also an individual tribe in the group also called the Blackfoot. I travelled through an area known as the Porcupine Hills, south of Calgary near the Old Man River and I have rarely been moved by a place anywhere in the world. My spirit just sang with joy.
I would later discover that Eagle Tail was one of those who signed the land treaty with the white settlers which put the Indian tribes onto reservations and he had chosen an area around the Porcupine Hills and the Old Man River. He loved the area and felt it was the best place for his people to settle. I talk more of these experiences in Truth Vibrations and In The Light Of Experience.
Two years after that trip to Canada, I was walking through Oxford with Yeva looking for the Pitt Rivers Museum which has a section dedicated to Indian history. We were given the wrong directions to the Museum and we were lost. As we walked I told her about Sitting on an Eagle Tail and how I felt that was a previous incarnation. At that moment we passed a pub called ‘The Eagle and the Child’.
looked up at the pub sign hanging from the wall. There before me was
a picture of an eagle with a little child sitting on its tail! I
have had scores of ‘coincidences’ happen to me since my awakening
became conscious in 1990, but that was a real stunner.
I read a book about the life of the Blackfoot Chief, Crowfoot, which also spanned the lifetime of Eagle Tail. It was sobering to see that when they were born the Indian way of life had remained virtually unchanged for thousands of years; by the time they died in the latter part of the last century, their tribes were dependent on hand-outs from the white settlers. Their lands had been taken and their independence was gone. These proud people were lining up on their little reservations to be given their rations.
The Christian missionaries had arrived seeking to impose
their creed upon the Indian people. The ‘God-fearers’ were rampant
and some of the most tragic and pathetic pictures I have seen are of
Indian people, Bibles in hand and assembled in their Sunday best,
waiting to be indoctrinated and mind-controlled in the mission
churches built on their reservations. Nearly fifteen hundred years
after the nonsense of Nicaea, it was now spreading its arrogance and
mind control across North America which, until then, had somehow
managed to survive very nicely without it.
The Luciferic consciousness was now unleashing everything it could muster before the time of the Great Cleansing which was fast approaching.
Much of the human race was easy prey, and it was
rapidly discovering the means to destroy itself and the planet, too.
