S.O.S. (Save Our Souls) New Age has arrived


J.M.J. + O.B.T. + M.G.R.*

IT TOOK TWO GENERATIONS, 40 YEARS

Since 2004 I have been engaged in research that seems to indicate that where America is right now is no accident. Yes, we have now traveled through the crossroads. Yes, we have CHOSEN CHANGE as our god and deposed the Judeo-Christian God and life. We are now swimming in shark infested waters. But who sees it? Who really cares?

POINT 1:

Marilyn Ferguson "god mother" of the New Age Movement is now dead at age 70 (Oct 19). She wrote The Aquarian Conspiracy (1980) the gospel of the New Age that describes a "leaderless movement" with the potential to trigger a global paradigm shift. I read it cover to cover. It is shocking how little we see of the real battlefield for hearts and minds. Thus we were prepped for a leader who would rise like the sun over America.

More recently she penned Aquarius Now (2005) the book of New Age Revelation that talks to an impending messianic coming of age.

The following quote from Aquarius Now has a very Obamaian ring to it, no?

"When asked for his most important discovery, a famous corporate trainer said, "I finally realized that people learn from only one thing: experience. And most people aren't very good at it." Beyond a certain point all education is self-education. New learning comes slowly unless we choose it. A self-defined challenge is an irresistible teacher. In encompassing the simple secrets of the visionary life, radical common sense may be the long-sought Grail, a powerful vessel in which we might shape ourselves and be shaped."

As if expecting this troubling development, the Vatican released a key document in 2003. It reveals the extent of the New Age infiltration in the Church and in society.

Jesus Christ: The Bearer of the Water of Life (http://www.vatican.va/roman_curia/pontifical_councils/interelg/documents/rc_pc_interelg_doc_20030203_new-age_en.html) should be required reading by every Catholic. More importantly it should be the source of ongoing intelligent discussion. It is that important, for we are literally swimming in the toxic waters of New Age thought and practice without knowing it. We are slowly being poisoned to the Truth. Once we are so weakened, we might fail to recognize Jesus when he does come to visit us. We may not recognize the life saver of the TRUTH thrown our way to save us.

Why Now?

Jesus Christ: The Bearer of the Water of Life opens with the words:

"The beginning of the Third Millennium comes not only two thousand years after the birth of Christ, but also at a time when astrologers believe that the Age of Pisces – known to them as the Christian age – is drawing to a close. These reflections are about the New Age, which takes its name from the imminent astrological Age of Aquarius. The New Age is one of many explanations of the significance of this moment in history which are bombarding contemporary (particularly western) culture, and it is hard to see clearly what is a"nd what is not consistent with the Christian message. So this seems to be the right moment to offer a Christian assessment of New Age thinking and the New Age movement as a whole."

POINT 2:

Obama's grandmother, Madelyn Durham is now dead at age 85 (Nov 3) A feminist before her time, the six-day a week bridge playing "tutu," was described as a "drill sergeant" at the Bank of Hawaii. She raised Barry with a calculating eye towards opportunity and advancement. Her "influence on his manner and the way he viewed the world was substantial."

God rest both of their souls.

POINT 3:

Oprah Winfrey, their heir apparent, is on the rise and her New Age following is supersubstantial. Her influence on TV-laced America is now legendary. What Martha Stewart has done through feng-shui marketing of her "it's a good thing" worldview—injecting it intervenously into America's home and family life, Oprah has preached from her throne to seal the deal.


Feeling has now trumped reason.
The Queen now rules the chessboard.
"Feminize and conquer is her mantra."


YES, IT TOOK TWO GENERATIONS, 40 YEARS


Yes, the HAIR worldview of 1968 is here to stay in 2008.

The lyrics of the haunting pipe dream, Aquarius / Let The Sunshine In (The Flesh Failures) might as well replace the Star Spangled Banner as the new National Anthem.

Aquarius / Let The Sunshine In (The Flesh Failures)


When the moon is in the seventh house
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars

This the dawning of the Age of Aquarius
The Age of Aquarius

Aquarius
Aquarius

Harmony and understanding
Sympathy and trust abounding
No more falsehoods or derisions
Golden living dreams of visions
Mystic crystals revelations
And the mind's true liberation

Act One of the Broadway Musical HAIR, that spawned the song Aquarius is telling:

(from the Wikipedia article, HAIR)

The tribe recites a list of pharmaceuticals, legal and illegal ("Hashish"). Woof, a gentle soul, extols several sexual practices ("Sodomy") and says, "I grow things." He loves plants, his family and the audience, telling the audience, "We are all one." Hud, a militant African-American, is carried in upside down on a pole. He declares himself "president of the United States of love" ("Colored Spade")

A black on a pole, upside down...seems like an anti-Christ figure to me, much like the peace sign which conveniently looks like an upside down priest's vestment. And his Love? No sir, it is lust impure and simple.

CONCLUSION:

When he wrote this telling article in Feburary 2008, Michael Beran couldn't forsee the economic fear/blame factor that would play out to crystalize the Messianic support that carried Obama to victory. Curious how sudden this wave hit America's shores, and sooo timely.

NATIONAL REVIEW Online

Obama’s Messianic Politics
Why his healer-redeemer rhetoric has a limited appeal.
by Michael Knox Beran

It is too soon to tell whether Senator Obama’s magic is beginning to fail him. But his recent defeats in Ohio and Texas point to difficulties he confronts when trying to sell his brand of healer-redeemer politics to large swaths of the electorate.

Why the catchwords of his redemption rhetoric — “journey,” “real change,” “that’s what hope is, imagining”— have mesmerized certain slices of the demographic pie is puzzling to those who lack the proper mental receptors for whatever psychic gamma waves he emits. But take a step back, and the nature of Senator Obama’s appeal becomes a little clearer. I imagine an anthropologist, centuries hence, sifting through the ruins of our civilization and concluding something like this: “The rise of the cult of Obama, a young lawmaker from one of his people’s middle-western metropolises, suggests parallels with the earlier progress of the Egyptian cult of Osiris and the Greco-Phrygian worship of Adonis-Attis, in which civilizations which had lost their original spiritual inspirations sought rejuvenation in the figure of a beautiful young man who promised to redeem a barren time. The Obama cult was especially popular among those citizens who, in the scribal forms of the day, checked the box designated ‘some college’ in their communications with the central authority . . .”

One of the tests of a leader is whether he has a capacity to mobilize his people’s myths. Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr., and Ronald Reagan all reworked Biblical parables of healing and redemption in their rhetoric. Obama’s ability to work successfully in this vein is evidence of his uncommon political skills. But in revising the politics of redemption he’s both made it less Biblical and focused it more relentlessly than his predecessors on the radiance of a particular kind of shamanistic magic (his own). The Obama millennium is more New Age than New Testament, more rock concert than “Rock of Ages.”

The difficulty with his I-am-the-Adonis-who-changes-winter-into-spring version of the redemption myth is that it resonates most strongly with a relatively small group of voters — prosperous, college-educated Democrats who are less likely than their poorer, less-educated partisans to have faith in the West’s traditional healer-redeemer figure (Jesus), or so church-attendance rates suggest. In a blue state like Connecticut, income and church attendance are negatively correlated; in blue-land, it is the poorer folk who are more likely to be conventionally pious. They aren’t looking for a messiah; they’ve already found one in church.

The rich, churchless, blue-state elites, by contrast, are hungry for the kind of secular nirvana Obama is serving up. Obama-mania is a political expression of the same impulse that underlies a broader movement, among the educated rich, towards a post-Christian spirituality, evident in such fetishes as yoga, feng-shui, investment-banker Buddhism, and tennis-set Sufism — the small-is-beautiful and green-is-good crazes.

Obama’s defeats in Texas and Ohio suggest that he has yet to find a way to extend his niche appeal to a larger electorate, one that is indifferent to the charms of the renewal rites in The Golden Bough and T. S. Eliot’s “The Waste Land.” The larger electorate looks forward to celebrating its renewal rites, not at the Democratic convention in Denver, but in church at Easter.

If Obama is to win in states where he can’t count on his spiritually blue base (or a no-less-sympathetic black base) to turn the tide, he needs to persuade the larger electorate that his messianic rhetoric is backed by policies that will deliver the epochal change he promises.

It won’t be easy. American healer-redeemer figures — Jefferson and Lincoln, for example, as well as Reagan and King — have typically connected their messianic rhetoric to policies that in some way promise to enlarge the sphere of freedom. There is little in Obama’s policies to suggest that expanding citizens’ liberty of action is one of his priorities.

He can, it is true, take some comfort in the example of Franklin Roosevelt, the healer-redeemer who laid the foundation of the welfare state. But although his orthodox liberalism is faithful to FDR’s vision, Obama has been reluctant, to date, to make the case for old-style New Deal liberalism. The promise to deliver a souped-up welfare state would undercut his promise to deliver “change we can believe in.”What’s more, the FDR precedent highlights one of Obama’s vulnerabilities where the larger electorate is concerned. Obama may be Franklin’s heir in domestic policy, but his approach to foreign affairs is very different. FDR recognized the global threat to liberty in his time and acted to meet it. His generation of Americans, he told the Democratic Convention in 1936, had a “rendezvous with destiny,” a mission “to save a great and precious form of government for ourselves and for the world,” an obligation to “fight for freedom . . . in the midst of dictatorships.”Obama is much more cavalier about today’s threats to freedom; he appears closer to the Neville Chamberlain school of foreign policy than the Roosevelt-Churchill one.

A potent myth-maker, Obama is also a limited one. His New Age shamanism tells us less about where the country needs to go than about the spiritual emptiness of those among our elites who have been so quick to anoint him a new, secular messiah. The irony is that these same elites have used a draconian reading of the First Amendment to relegate the oldest and richest traditions of our spiritual culture to an obscure corner of the public square, a kind of refuse bin for slightly disreputable hand-me-downs from our benighted ancestors.

They now look to the new swami to effect the miraculous regeneration of a spiritual waste land their own policies have helped to create.

Please remember this next time you hear the Al Gore mantra "global warming, " or Oprah's "we must save our planet." "Gaia" is supposed to pass way and it will so only when Almighty God says so.

We were put here to save our human soul and help others to do the same, saving Mother Earth is not a priority. Yes we are to be good stewards of God's temporal gifts but not at the expense of our eternal spiritual inheritance.

The carbon tax is the ultimate deceit that will try to force us to worship at the foot of the master of the world.

We must be prepared for it!
