Brown’s book details his psychic conversations with aliens, and repeats allegations similar to those made by Dames, Ingo Swann, Joe McMoneagle, and others. Among them:
Martians live among us, and seek our help to return home. They live in South America and under the mountain Santa Fe Baldy
Brown psychically contacted Jesus, Guru Dev, and Buddha
The idea for the Star Trek TV series was inspired by aliens to get humanity accustomed to the idea of working with alien races in a Federation.
Specific plot elements of the Star Trek: Next Generation series were suggested to someone on the show via an implanted telepathy device.
Many of Dames’ claims concerning the Martians are presented here, but Brown implies that this is the first time any of this has been revealed to the remote viewers, even though the sessions took place in 1994 and Dames made similar claims as early as 1993.
Brown founded the Farsight Institute in 1995. The Institute teaches a Scientific Remote Viewing course called “Farsight Voyager”, which costs around $3,000.00.
“Unfortunately, I [Ed Dames] was Courtney’s trainer, but I had to have my name expunged from the book because Prof. Brown went beyond the pale of our tried and tested techniques, into the world of channeling.”
However, Brown claims that his trainer (Dames) personally monitored and directed his viewing sessions, included those that were involved with “channeling”.
Cosmic Explorers – Different Reptilian Factions on Earth
Souls exist in subspace, that vast domain diversely referred to by mystics and theologians as the etheric realm, heaven, or the afterlife. P. 4
The subspace mind, the intelligence of the soul, perceives and processes information differently from the physical mind. All evidence suggests that the subspace mind is omnipresent across space and time. P. 9
Any person of average or better intelligence apparently can be trained to remote view with considerable accuracy. P. 19
All this implies that remote viewing is a skill that takes considerable practice. A person does not learn the procedures and instantly perceive accurately across time and space. Rather, accuracy increases with practice. Just as all artists must practice regularly in order to perfect their skills, remote viewers need to view often in order to maintain and improve their skills. P. 77
Returning to their former genes was never an option for the Greys. They held a deep fear of their past. If their former genetics led them to an existence in which they selfishly destroyed their own planet, what guarantee could be made that they would not do so again? The Greys wanted a different route to the future, a route that required outside help.Apparently after serving the Galactic Federation as members in good standing for a long time, the Greys applied for permission to travel to Earth and obtain human genetic material to create a new race for their souls to inhabit. My data suggest that they have carefully followed a policy of asking permission of human souls before physical birth with regard to their participation in the Grey’s genetic activities. P. 99-100
Based on the previous chapters on the Reptilian ET species, the following are apparently the case:
the Reptilian ET species exists
it is currently involved in a significant military confrontation with another group, possibly the Greys
Earth and humans have been indirectly caught up in this military confrontation
the Reptilians have at least one underground facility on Earth in which both they and a Reptilian/human hybrid species work together
the Reptilians have some future plan for Earth and humans, although we do not yet know any specifics for this plan. P. 125
The Reptilians are apparently highly interested in maintaining the secrecy of their operations. They are now totally aware that we are capable of remote viewing their facilities and their activities, and they are adapting their behavior in a defensive fashion. Apparently they can do little but stand still when we remote view them. P. 129
My interpretation of these data now lead me to suspect that group G2 is a renegade Reptilian faction. This group is qualitatively different from the remainder of Reptilian society.
. . . I suspect it is this group that is at war at the current time, not the entirety of Reptilian society.
. . . If my interpretation of these data are correct, then we truly have a significant problem. If the larger Reptilian society itself cannot control this group, then how are we to control them?
. . . Based on my observations to date, we will need outside help. Unless further data suggest another course of action, I see no alternative to this. As relative newcomers in these galactic woods, we cannot, we must not, act alone. P. 143
There seems to be a presidential address in progress. (Which president is making the address is unclear.) There is an announcement about new friends, but this announcement contains deception… The session data suggest that the president has been tricked, and that there is a Reptilian influence associated with his behavior. Essentially, he is denying that something exists. P. 178-179
[Regarding the Martians]
Once they arrive here, they need a place to stay, a facility for their Earth-based operations. Early remote-viewing results suggest that there is such a modern Martian facility in the United States located in the state of New Mexico underneath the mountain Santa Fe Baldy Remote viewers have targeted this facility many times, virtually always with the same results. I have personally grown to accept these results as basically accurate. One day, hopefully soon, we will all know the truth about these matters. P. 181
In my interpretation of these data, it appears that the agenda of the Reptilian extraterrestrials is to use the genetic stock of humanity to create a new race that is partially human and partially Reptilian. P. 200
Recall that a great deal of remote-viewing data indicate that there is a complete continuum of realities and timelines, all of which equally exist. This is one of the reasons why it has historically been so difficult to remote view the future in particular. Many futures are nearly equally probable, and subtle and momentary considerations of a viewer’s subspace personality can send a session off in any of these future directions The possibilities are endless, and almost any scenario can be found in some future trajectory. For this reason, when we cue the future, it is necessary to state explicitly which timeline we want to be on in the session. P. 201
[Regarding the current time line]
The data in the current session contain no elements that suggest that the environmental devastation on Earth is caused by anyone other than ourselves. Moreover, nowhere in these data are there the concepts of human rights abuses, incarceration, or authoritarian rule. These are just humans struggling as best they can. They are angry at their predecessors for making selfish decisions that destroyed much of their world. P. 216
The Reptilian mentality perceives humans as things to understand with buttons to push and knobs to twist. I perceive no sense that the Reptilians want to interact with us as equals. They want to understand us and to gain from us. But they do not seem concerned about our desire to determine our own fate, and to choose with whom we wish to interact.
…I detect absolutely no sense of coercion, or any desire to force anything, from the consciousness of the Greys. Their open intellects are indeed childlike. But there is a deep maturity in their way of thinking that both respects our differentness and celebrates our common existence. P. 222
From the perspective of the Galactic Federation, it is the right of a species to learn from its own mistakes, however severe these mistakes may be, as long as the species does not deprive another species of its own freedom to do likewise. The Federation does not want a universe of species that act like dogs on a leash. My observations indicate that the Galactic Federation embraces a philosophy that values the freedom of all species to achieve a unique destiny, to mature in their own ways through God’s school of the living experience. P. 234
As a species, we are going to make a crucial decision in the near future. Our decision may be to accept the responsibility of our own destiny, which may include inflicting horrible environmental abuses to our world as we fight to understand ourselves and our true potential. Alternatively, we may abandon the difficult commitment to forge a future for ourselves that contributes meaning to a struggling universe, and instead choose a path that continues the pathology of controlling our masses with secrecy and manipulation.
Have you noticed this deterioration of morality in our TV Series? Well I surely have…
NEWS BRIEF: “Sex rules on today’s single-minded sitcoms”, The Providence Journal Bulletin, Tuesday, January 28, 1997, p. G-1. “It’s an early January evening in 1967, and with the dinner dishes cleared, the nuclear family settles in around the Magnavox black-and-white. Samantha seethes at Endora for turning Darrin into a donkey on the night before and important presentation. Sister Bertrill, the Flying Nun, has got herself in trouble again, trying to raise money for the orphanage. The Riddler is leading Batman and Robin on a wild-goose chase — wham! — through the sewers of Gotham City.”
“Flash forward 30 years, to an early January evening in 1997. The Domino’s pizza boxes are in the trash and what’s left of the nuclear family clicks on the 27-inch Sony and hunkers down for some prime-time tube. On The Nanny, Fran, in a skintight mini, teases her handsome boss with not-so-veiled allusions to her sex life. On Men Behaving Badly, Jamie runs out of coffee filters and uses his underwear to make coffee for a woman he is trying to pick up. On The Jamie Foxx Show, the comedian jumps out of a cake half-nude, Chippendale’s style. A promo for Spin City promises that Michael J. Fox’s character will be impotent with his live-in girlfriend.”
What a major difference between the scene in paragraphs 1- 1967, and 2- 1997, above! Let us quickly examine the differences between these two scenes:
Para 1 — Family depicted is intact
Para 2 — Family is broken, probably either divorced or living outside of marriage
Para 1 — Someone, probably Mother, fixed dinner for her family
Para 2 — No dinner fixed; rather, pizza was ordered in
Para 1 — Technology is old Magnavox black-and-white TV very small screen
Para 2 — Technology is new color Sony, with 25″ screen
Para 1 — Scenes of shows depict comedy, concern for the less fortunate, and innocent cops and robbers, where no blood flows, and hardly anone ever gets killed
Para 2 — Scenes of shows depict sex, sex, and more sex
Before we go on with this article, let us review some basic facts, quoting from two Bibles. First, I will quote from Anton Lavey’s Satanic Bible, and then I shall quote from God’s Holy Bible. After I am finished, you can get a more clear idea where we are headed as a nation, and what the outcome can be expected to be.
In Seminar 1, “America’s Leadership of the New World Order”, when I boldly state that the majority of Americans are “practicing Satanists”, I get laughter bordering on anger. But, when I quote the Satanic Bible as to what Satanic values really are, the laughter and the anger dies immediately, as my listeners suddenly realize that Americans have subscribed to the values of Satanism in their daily lives. The majority of our citizenry has begun practicing Satanism in their daily lives, without realizing what they have done. Certainly, they do not congregate in midnight ceremonies in weird costumes, saying chants and sacrificing animals and people; yet, they have begun to practice Satanism daily, in their lives. Satan rules their hearts, their attitudes, and their core value systems.
According to the Satanic Bible, what are the core, basic values of Satanism?
What are the predominate values of Satanism?
Satanism urgesindulgence in each of the following areas: [Page 46]
1) Personal selfishness, i.e., greed and pride.
6) Sloth, i.e., laziness.
Please take a few moments to contemplate these Satanic values, and compare them with the ‘normal’ people in your life. Then, keep these Satanic values in your mind when your read your daily newspaper. Do you not see that most of our news, most of our crime, and most of our troubles stem from ‘normal’ citizens “indulging” in these Satanic values? I see major amounts of crime stemming from the practicing of Satanic Values #1, #2, #3, and #4, don’t you? Whether you are talking about crimes such as murder, stealing, domestic violence, drugs, alcohol, child abuse, or whether you are talking about sexually transmitted diseases and the enormous social consequences of them, you see that they are created by ‘normal’ citizens subscribing to Satanic Values 1-4.
If Satanic Value #5 were not such a problem, we would not have so many grossly overweight people in our society that diet fads are quite the current rage. We would not have so much emphasis upon working out, keeping trim, and living ‘forever’, either.
And, do you not see our National and State Welfare Programs in Value #6?
Now, please understand this principle: The Antichrist is going to dramatically espouse exactly these attitudes and values. Therefore, the ‘normal’ citizens who comprise American society are going to have to be changed to embrace these values in their every- day lives. So, when Antichrist arises, these people will think his values to be ‘normal’, because they are exactly what their personal values are!! Are we at this point yet? If we are, then it is just one more sign that the appearance of Antichrist is very close. Remember, these changes in basic individual values must have occurred silently, almost invisibly, so its victims do not know that they have been victimized; rather, they will defend these values as being ‘normal’, and they will not feel that they are living in sin. As one author put it, “This cultural change is all the more sinister, because it is invisible to those who already become captive to its lie….They don’t even realize the lights are out.” [Charles Colson, “AgainstThe Night: Living In The New Dark Ages,” Servant Publications, Ann Arbor, Michigan, 1989, p. 98.]
To understand how thoroughly we have come to this point in America today, we need to continue on with our newspaper article.
“By all measures, the television sitcom has changed radically in 30 years. Some people moan over the demise of the Golden Era, saying there is too little original humor. [Author’s note: notice that the complaint here is not over the morality of the sitcom, but that they contain “too little original humor”]. Others counter that series such as Seinfeld and The Larry Sanders Show (and Cheers a few years back) represents a hybrid form that meshes intelligent comedy with keen social observation [Author’s note: is that what these sex filled sitcoms are, “keen social observation”?]”
“But, there’s one thing that virtually anyone who watches television comedies these days will agree on: sex is everywhere.” My, oh my, this does sound like Satanic values
#1 and #2! Everyone who watches these sitcoms regularly, obviously because they like them, is practicing Satanism! I didn’t say it; the Satanic Bible said it. Folks, it is time to wake up from your spiritual stupor to understand the desperate times in which we live! Our society is very, very close to the point where we can accept the values of Antichrist. And, when you join this to the many other things happening in our society as well, such as the increase in killing at both ends of the age spectrum, you should easily be able to see that Antichrist is very close!
Now, back to our article.
“A study released in December by Children Now and the Kaiser Family Foundation two public policy groups, found that three out of every four shows in the ‘family hour’ — 8 to 9 p.m. — now contain sexually related talk or behavior, a fourfold increase since 1976.” This statistic is frankly unbelievable: 3 out of every 4 programs [75%] are written with sexual talk and/or sexual behavior. Christian parents, do you realize that at the same time you are trying to train your children in Godly, Christian values, TV shows are teaching them the Satanic values? Do you realize why the Bible is full of warnings to completely separate yourself from fleshly temptations? It is because our corrupt fleshly nature is naturally drawn to these sins and finds it easier and ‘more natural’ to follow them rather than God’s spiritual standards; as a result, children, who are struggling with so many issues of life when they are in their preteen and teenage years, will probably select the sinful values if they are bombarded constantly with sexual stimuli!!! Parents, it is time to either turn off your TV except for news and sports, or throw it out altogether. I did throw my TV out during my kid’s teen years, and my family prospered emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
But, now back to our lead news story. Now, we hear from New Age Norman Lear, as he tries to define this debate still further. “‘The biggest problem with how much sex there is on TV now isn’t whether it’s offensive,’ says Norman Lear, one of the people who broke television’s sexual taboos in the 1970’s to raise social consciousness. ‘It’s just that most of the sex on TV today isn’t funny. It’s stupid and boring.'”
What a statement! First, Lear tries to sidestep the issue of Christian morality being offended here — in fact, he tacitly acknowledges that it is, but he is just saying it doesn’t matter if it is — by saying that the problem with all this sex today is that it isn’t funny; it is “stupid” and “boring”. What Lear is saying is that, if the sexual content in sitcoms today were funny, and not stupid, and not boring, it would be ok!! And, notice the admission by the writers of this newspaper article, above, when they state that the reason Lear broke TV’s sexual taboos in the 1970’s with his shows was to “raise social consciousness”!! This is the first time I have ever seen anyone admit the TV industry writes their material from a social agenda, with the bias toward changing American’s attitudes and values away from our traditional Christian values, and toward the New Age/New World Order values!! What a great admission by the author of this article!
Now, this article gets into some specifics that will shock you to your core if you are a Christian. “From the so-called quality sitcoms (Mad About You and 3rd Rock FromThe Sun) to more downscale versions of the genre (Martin, and Married … With Children) a majority of story lines in prime time revolve around the character’s sexual gratification — or lack of it.” How many of these shows are you watching? One of the greatest problem in our society today is the many Christians who regularly enjoy watching these type of shows. Are you one of them?
“In the last several decades, television’s depiction of life has taken a 180-degree turn toward the purient, but virtually no one — including the writers and producers responsible for today’s shows — says that all this sex makes sitcoms inherently funnier.” Well, that admission is interesting! Why include sex in virtually all the sitcoms, by the truckload, if they do not make the show more funny? No answer is really given; rather, the focus of this debate is subtly changed, to whether such sexual content is handled ‘properly’.
“Like many sitcom writers, [Larry] Charles makes a distinction between good sex and bad sex on television. The sex on NBC’s Seinfeld, for example, is handled with great sophistication, he says. Even the famous episode in which the four main characters compete to see who can refrain longest from masturbating … was executed with remarkable subtlety. ‘Most importantly’, he [Charles] says, ‘it was very, very funny’.”
How outrageous! How morally bankrupt! No Christian can ever justify making masturbation the subject of a TV show. In my research into this New World Order, I became aware of the importance of Pornography to the advancement of the coming kingdom of Antichrist [New World Order]. Why is this the case? Because pornography interferes with the development of Christian virtue and values in the life of a young, developing male teen or preteenager. And, pornography is addictive, so it leads to deeper levels of pornography, especially into perversions of all sorts; and it leads to immoral behavior. In fact, the deeper pornography can and does lead to criminal behavior in too many instances in our society today, leading to too many cases of murder and child abuse and spousal abuse, to name just a few of the consequences. Further, my research revealed that the #1 aim of pornographers is to cause the male participant to masterbate! Since masterbation is such an integral part of pornography, we can appreciate how vile of a practice it can become, and we can further understand how vile it is for a TV sitcom to make it their main subject for this particular episode. How many young men, reacting to this particular sitcom in the manner prescribed by the Six Step Attitudinal Change Plan, [NEWS1006 and Radio Transcripts CE1002 and CE1007], walked away from watching this show with the distinct feeling that masturbation was not wrong? Their attitudes would have been changed just a little, would they not?
“… On Fox’s Married … With Children, which began as a cleverly bawdy parody of the saccharine family sitcoms of the 1950’s but has become, in the many critic’s opinions, an over-the-top parody of itself. ‘We don’t have any sort of deep philosophical reason for joking about sex,’ says Ron Leavitt, the creator of the show. ‘Our intention was just to subvert the genre of squeaky-clean family entertainment.'” Again, what a terrific, eye-opening admission of the hidden agenda behind today’s TV shows. At the time of writing the show, of creating it, the writers and producers wanted to “subvert” the normal family values. How much more clear can it get, my friends?
“After 10 seasons … even the character’s outrageousness has become predictable. The few jokes that don’t refer to the sexual habits of the characters (a sexually frustrated mother, a prematurely ejaculating father, a slutty daughter, a sleazy son) revolve around their bad personal hygiene.” Is this the picture of the ‘normal’ family today? The mother is sexually frustrated because the father prematurely ejaculates, the daughter is “slutty” which means she has sex with just about anyone, and the son is “sleazy” which means the same thing. What a difference from the “Leave It To Beaver” and “Father Knows Best” depictions of the ‘typical’ family in the 1950’s. Oh, how far we have fallen!
To absoutely understand what kind of nation the TV industry knows we have become, listen to the creator of the sitcom, on Fox’s, Ned and Stacey. Michael Weithorn, “says it is business realities that force writers these days to mine the mother lode of sexual humor. ‘The networks are aiming their programming at people between the ages of 18 and 49, and sometime 18 and 34’, he says, ‘The style of humor is aimed at them. That’s what it takes sometimes to make them laugh.'” Do you realize what Weithorn has just told us? He has just told us that the very sophisticated analysis by TV networks has realized that their primary viewing audience — between the ages of 18 and 49 — wants this sexually explicit type show. Americans want it, and by golly, in this free market economy, what the customer wants, the customer gets! The point is simply that these TV sitcoms, full of sex, accurately reflects the type of individuals America now has as its citizens. In my business dealings, I became aware, a long time ago, of the very high level of sexual thought in most people’s minds, both male and female. Oh, how far we have fallen!
Now, let us spend a few moments at the end of this article to examine this deplorable situation from a Biblical perspective. We are training our children and young adults to pursue a life filled with sexual immorality, a sin the Bible calls Adultery. Quoting from the Holman Bible Dictionary, “ADULTERY is the act of unfaithfulness in marriage that occurs when one of the marriage partners voluntarily engages in sexual intercourse with a person of the opposite sex other than the marriage partner.” The key words in this definition is “in marriage”. God designed sex to occur only within His Plan for marriage, i.e., one husband and one wife. This prohibits sex between a man and a woman that are not married, as well as homosexual and lesbian “sex”.
“Old Testament Israel’s covenant law prohibited adultery (Ex. 20:14) and thereby made faithfulness to the marriage relationship central in the divine will for human relationships. Many Old Testament regulations deal with adultery as the adulterous man’s offense against the husband of the adulterous wife. Yet both the adulterous man and woman were viewed as guilty, and the punishment of death was prescribed for both (Lev. 20:10). The severity of the punishment indicates the serious consequences adultery has for the divine-human relationship (Ps. 51:4) as well as for marriage, family, and community relationships.” [Holman Bible Dictionary]
Did you understand this last sentence? The reason God views activity of sex outside of marriage is that our human marriage is a type, or a picture, of the Divine Will of the relationship between God and man! When a person is sexually unfaithful to his or her spouse, they have violated God’s Divine Marriage between Himself and mankind. This is why David prayed the way he did after Samuel confronted him over his adulterous relationship with Bathsheeba. “Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy loving kindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me. Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.” (Psalm 51:1-4)
Verse 4 is the key to our understanding here. Even though King David had taken Bathsheeba away from her rightful husband, destroying their marriage, and even though he had ordered her husband to be deliberately exposed in battle so he would be killed, David correctly understood that his sin was against God. “Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight.”
In the New Testament we see this marriage relationship between God and man even more clearly when Jesus Messiah marries the Christian Church, and calls her His “Bride” (Revelation 19:7-9).
Since Adultery between husband and wife is a violation of the spiritual marriage God has established between Himself and mankind, we can expect very severe consequences for committing this sin, can we not? Indeed, we can. God proclaimed the death penalty for anyone, man or woman, caught in the act of Adultery, as we shared with you, above.
But, allow me to ask a theoretical question. Since a nation is simply a collection of individual people sharing common language, common land, and common laws, how does God react when a certain such collection of people — Americans, for example — continually commit the sin of Adultery on a daily basis? Further, America is committing the sin of also teaching its young to commit Adultery, thereby dooming their souls to Hell. The Bible is full of warnings of this type of sin. In Romans 1:32, God warns that people who know what is wrong, but do it anyway, and then who teach others to commit this sin, are in for very special judgment.
So, how does God deal with a nation whose citizens are daily sinning greatly, in this case, the sin of Adultery? The answer is simple, but profound.
Collective private morality quickly becomes the national morality in God’s eyes.
Therefore, when the leaders of a particular nation, such as America today, refuse to carry out God’s decree for punishment for severe sins, God then punishes the entire nation as He would the individual. In the case of Adultery, where the punishment is physical death, God would, in time, physically execute the entire nation.
In the Old Testament, we see several city or national executions at the hand of God. The episode of the Flood in Genesis 6:1-9:19 is the first time God executed whole nations of people, in this case the entire world, as punishment for sin. Even though God had not yet codified His commandments, nevertheless, they were well known through His verbal instructions.
Then, in the instance of Sodom and Gomorrah, God executed two major cities because of their sexual sin Most of us think of the sin of homosexuality as the primary reason for God’s physical destruction of these two cities, but, as the Holman Bible Dictionary so eloquently states, “The unnatural lusts of the men of Sodom (Gen. 19:4-8; Jude 7) have given us the modern term sodomy, but the city was guilty of a full spectrum of sins including pride, oppression of the poor, haughtiness, and ‘abominable things’ (Ezek. 16:49-50). Together, Sodom and Gomorrah provided a point of comparison for the sinfulness of Israel and other nations (Deut. 32:32; Isa. 1:10; Jer. 23:14). The memory of their destruction provided a picture of God’s judgment (Isa. 13:19; Jer. 49:18; Matt. 10:14-15; 11:23-24) and made them an example to be avoided (Deut. 29:23-25; 2 Pet. 2:6). ”
There is a particular segment to this story of Sodom and Gomorrah that most Bible scholars, preachers, and teachers have never addressed. I would like to share it with you, because it is devastatingly true in America today.
The entire society of Sodom must have been supportive of homosexual activity. Schools, churches, courts, social organizations of all types, had to have been supportive.
They had to have taught that it is normal sexual activity.
Why do I say this? Because of the Biblical account, Genesis 19:2-4. God’s holy angels [who had taken the form of human men] sent to rescue Lot and his family before God destroyed the cities, spent the evening in Lot’s house, where he fixed them dinner. In verse 4, we see quite a spectacle develop. The homosexual men of every part of the city, both young and old, surrounded the house to demand that the male guests in Lot’s house come outside. Why did they want these disguised angels to come outside? So they could have sex with them. Now, wait a minute! The homosexual men outside Lot’s house intended to have group sex with these ‘men’ in PUBLIC! In public! In America today, we still have laws that make it illegal for anyone to have sex outside, in public. Many, many public rest stops along our highways have been closed because homosexual men were meeting there and having sex there. We have laws that would have made these men of Sodom fearful of having sex IN PUBLIC.
Therefore, because these men showed no fear of being arrested, we can only conclude that, prior to this event, the laws of Sodom had to have been changed, allowing public sex, laws which bestowed a mantle of societal approval upon public sex!!
Such was the condition of Sodom and Gomorrah when God destroyed them physically, a national execution. Jesus said that, at the Time of the Great Tribulation, societies would exhibit the same behavior as the people in Sodom exhibited before God destroyed them. Read Luke 17:28-30.
Does this mean that America, and the other nations of the world will soon change their laws to decriminalize homosexuality, thus possibly allowing public sex acts? I believe this is only the logical conclusion to the process we are seeing today, where governmental acceptance of homosexuality is growing by leaps and bounds. Today, President Clinton has forbidden the military services from discharging anyone for homosexual orientation. Public schools are now teaching its students to be accepting of those who are homosexual, and we get this same message in all our media. Even the Boy Scouts of America has come under fire for not allowing anyone who is homosexual to be a scoutmaster.
Soon, probably after the Rapture of the Church, American laws will be changed, probably to allow public sex, not just of homosexuals but also of heterosexuals. We see a foretaste of this today, when participants in Gay Pride parades simulate sexual acts as the floats are going down the streets.
And, when America finally accepts public sex, we can look back at the work TV and movies have done to prepare the way for this change to occur. TV and movies prepared people’s minds and hearts for this ultimate change.
Parents, you need to seize control of your TV set, even if such action creates a major fight with your children. We are in the era of the End Times, where spiritual warfare is prophesied to be the heaviest. Soon, very soon, you will be standing before Jesus Christ on Rewards Day to give an account of your life. When Jesus starts reviewing the way you raised your children, are you going to be able to hear Jesus compliment you on fighting the good fight to raise your children in the “Fear and Admonition of the Lord?” We will not be held accountable for the way in which our children turned out, spiritually, but we will be held responsible for the way in which we fought the spiritual battle involved in raising them.
Parents, TURN YOUR TV OFF. OR, THROW IT OUT!
The time of the end is approaching quickly, and we see many signs of the condition of society of which the Bible prophesied that would exist at this time. This assault on the morality of our citizens is only one of these prophesied events. Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.

If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there.

Have you ever wondered the power of your thoughts? I think that saying “The World Is Your Apple” is quite true and you can manifest things in to your life if you just put your mind into it. This wonderful quote is from one of my all time favorite movies called Ghostbusters where Dr. Wenkman says this:
“For whatever reasons, Ray, call it . . . fate, call it luck, call it karma. I believe everything happens for a reason. I believe that we were destined to get thrown out of this dump.”
And here’s little article about karma:
Reactions to past thoughts and actions become our fate, destiny, and karma. An individual’s fate is simply the rebounding effects of previous choices remembered by its soul. The reason the effects of these previous choices often seem unfair to the conscious mind is because the personality doesn’t see beyond its own life for sources of current conditions.
As companions of God, we are free to live and choose and grow almost as we desire, but not without being subject to the Universal, Spiritual law. Through meeting our thoughts, actions, and words we learn to discern wisdom from folly, lasting strength from weakness, and true life from illusion. In turn we become more able to fulfill our ultimate purpose for existing: to be a companion to the Universal Creator. The law is actually a magnificent tool for perfect learning. It is completely impersonal everyone experiences it equally and for the purpose of enlightenment.
The law of karma is not some fierce god in the sky keeping track of everything so that it can zap people when they least expect it. Most karmic reactions, in fact, come from the individual’s own deep memory of what it has done.
Karma has been described as memory. Karma is memory coming to consciousness again. What has occurred in the past is recalled and has an effect on the present. Now, the recollection may not surface to the conscious level; the personality may have no awareness of the memory, in fact. Yet, it exists at the deeper, soul level. Nevertheless, the soul sees through the same eyes as the personality and is reminded of its past use of free will and consciousness. Naturally, some of these memories will be compatible with the Universal Mind and some will not. Memory is an important concept in understanding how the law of karma works.
As a soul draws closer to the Universal Mind, it becomes aware that some of its memories are not compatible with the Creator, and since its ultimate purpose for being is companionship with the Creator, it seeks out opportunities to resolve these incompatible memories.
Suppose a soul criticizes another soul among its peers and behind its back. As it becomes more aware of its true nature, it will recall this wrong and, because of its incompatibility with the Creator, will seek to correct it. Now, the resolution could take many forms. The soul might seek out an opportunity to work closely with the injured soul as a supporter, assistant, publicist, agent, or the like. Or perhaps it would seek to re-create the original scene putting itself in a position to criticize the other soul again in front of the same peers. The test would be to see if the soul would choose not to criticize this time, even if it meant a certain loss of position for itself. Throughout all this the soul grows wiser and more compatible with the Creator.
If, however, a soul has gotten so far away from its true nature that it has no conscience, then the law of karma can become a formidable obstacle to any further free-will action. Such a soul becomes surrounded by its karma; everywhere it turns, it meets the terrible effects of its previous action and thoughts. Yet, even a soul who has gotten in this pathetic situation can return to perfection because there is no total condemnation from the Creator or the law. If the soul turns away from its self-centeredness and begins acting, reacting, thinking, and speaking like a companion to the Universe, then the law is just as perfect as it is with error; and the reactions begin to build and establish a new destiny for that soul.
Karma is memory. As one recalls or relives situations, one meets self again, and a new decision point, or crossroads, is presented to the soul. In life, “good” would be equated with compatible, harmonious actions and thoughts which consider the needs and desires of others, along with self’s needs and desires. “Evil” would be equated with actions and thoughts that are motivated by a self-orientation that pays little or no attention to the needs and desires of others and the Whole. Metaphysically speaking, good results in oneness, and evil results in a sense of separation. Decisions in one’s life could be approached by evaluating which choices promote greater oneness and which promote separation.
One must meet every bit of one’s karma. However, there is a way that it can be modified, softened, even ameliorated. If a soul, knowing another soul has wronged it, forgives that soul and holds no lingering resentment perhaps has even forgotten the wrong in the depths of its forgiveness and understanding then it begins to take hold of the power of forgiveness. The more it forgives, the more it perceives and understands forgiveness. Then, when it approaches the Universal Consciousness and realizes it possesses memories that are incompatible with It, forgiveness is much more viable, removing the barrier of separation. The law is so precise (what one gives one receives; no exceptions) that if one begins having mercy on and forgiveness of others, one begins to receive mercy and forgiveness upon oneself. Unless, of course, one refuses to forgive oneself.
All of one’s karma has to be met. And yet, no soul is given more than it can bear to carry this is the paradoxical blessing hidden in the limitations of time and space. A soul is given the time it needs to turn away from its selfish ways and, like the prodigal son, return home to a feast of joy and welcome from our Creator. Reincarnation is not a way to avoid judgment and responsibility; it is a way to allow the soul enough time to correct its mistakes and develop itself.
Man’s life! On what or on whom does it depend? Why do some become emperors or regimental commanders, while others are obliged to fend for scraps at garbage dumps? One opinion holds that each person’s fate is pre-determined from birth. That would make man nothing more than an insignificant cog in some mechanised system, and not the highly organised creation of God.
According to a different opinion, Man (1) is a self-sufficient creation, including, without exception, all the diverse energies of the vast Universe. But there is in Man an energy peculiar to him alone. It is known as tbe energy of thought. Once Man realises just what kind of energy is in his possession and learns to exploit it to the full, then he will be a ruler of the whole Universe.
Which of these two mutually exclusive definitions of Man is true? Perhaps the following ancient parable -you could call it an anecdote -will help us arrive at the answer.
A man fed up with his life ran out into the woods at the edge of town, threw up his hands, clenched his fists and railed at God:
“I can’t go on with my life. Your earthly household is filled with nothing but injustice and chaos. Some people go gallivanting ’round town in expensive cars and dine in fine restaurants, while others fend for scraps at garbage dumps. Me, for instance – why; I ain’t got enough money to buy me a new pair of shoes. If You, God, are just – that is, if You exist at all – then make my lottery ticket hit the jackpot.”
At that moment the clouds parted in the heavens, a warm sunbeam caressed the complainant’s face and a calm, clear voice sounded from above:
“Do not worry; My son. I am prepared to fulfil your request”
The man was overjoyed. He walked along the street with a smile on his face, happily peering into shop windows and imagining what kind of goods his lottery winnings might buy. A year passed. The man won nothing. He concluded God had let him down. Now the man, who by this time was really fed up, went back to the same place in the woods where he had heard God’s promise and cried:
“You didn’t keep your promise to me, God. You let me down. I’ve been waiting for a whole year now. I’ve been dremning about the things I’ll buy with the money I win. But a whole year’s gone by; and I ain’t got no winnings yet.”
“Oh, My dear son,” came the sad response from the heavens.”You wanted to win a lot of money in the lottery. So why over the whole year did you not buy a single lottery ticket?”
This little parable or anecdote has been making the rounds lately. People tend to laugh at the loser.”How come he didn’t catch on that for his dream to come true he first had to buy at least one lottery ticket?” they ask. “But this chap didn’t even take the most obvious first step!” It’s not the parable itself that’s important here, or whether this situation ever actually happened. What is important is how people relate to the chain of events recounted in this story.
The fact that people laugh at the unfortunate dimwit tells us that they intuitively, perhaps subconsciously, realise that their own future life depends not on some kinf of Higher Power or Divine Design, but on themselves too.
And now everybody can try and analyse their own life situations. Have they done everything they possibly can on their own to make their dream come true? I dare say, and not without some justification, that any dream – even one that seems to be unreal and utterly fantasaical – will come true if only the individual wanting it to come true takes simple and consistent actions toward his goal. This statement could be illustrated with a whole range of examples. Here is one of them.
A Bride for an English Lord
One day at a small local market in the city of Vladimir I happened to witness an incident between a young salesgirl and an inebriated male customer. The girl was selling cigarettes. She was evidently new on the job and hadn’t yet boned up very well on her merchandise. She was getting the brand-names of the cigarettes mixed up and took a long time to wait on each customer. A small queue had formed – about three people. The last person in line, a drunken male, shouted out to the salesgirl:
“Hey, can’t you move a little faster, birdbrain!”
The girl’s cheeks blushed bright red. Several passers-by stopped to stare at the hapless girl. The drunk continued shouting out his unflattering remarks. He wanted to buy two packs of Primas, but when his turn came, the girl refused to serve him. Flushed with embarrassment and clearly having a hard time holding back her tears, she declared to the customer:
“You are being insulting, and I refuse to serve you.”
At first the man was dumbfounded at this unexpected turn of events. Then he faced the growing crowd of gawkers and launched into an even more insulting tirade:
“Will you just look at this stupid jackass?! If you got yourself a husband, he’d complain in no uncertain terms if you hobbled about the kitchen like a lame hen!”
“I wouldn’t let even my husband insult me like that,” the girl replied.
“Who d’you think you are, anyway? Nothing but a stubborn jackass!” the inebriated man went on, shouting even louder and more irritatingly. “She won’t let her husband – Maybe you’re planning on marrying some English lord?”
“Maybe a lord, that’s my business,” replied the girl tersely and turned away. The situation was heating up. Neither side was willing to give in. A sizeable crowd of market regulars had gathered to watch things unfold. Onlookers began scoffing at the young salesgirl’s declared intention to marry an English lord. Another girl came over from the next stall and stood beside her friend. She just stood there, without saying a word. They stood there silently; two young girls who looked to be just out of high school. The crowd that had gathered were now talking amongst themselves about the girls’ insolent and haughty behaviour.
Most of the snide remarks were about the girl’s pie-in-the-sky hopes of marrying a lord, along with her over-estimation of her attributes and opportunities. The dilemma was solved by a young man, the owner of the market stalls. When he first approached, he demanded in rather severe tones that the girl sell the cigarettes to the customer. However, after hearing her refusal, he quickly hit upon a solution satisfactory to all. Reaching into his pocket he pulled out a fifty-rouble note and addressed the girl:
“Madam, if you would be so kind, and if it is not too much trouble, please sell me two packages of Primas.”
“Of course,” responded the girl, handing him the cigarettes. The young man in turn passed the cigarettes to the male customer. The conflict was over and the crowd dispersed. This story has a sequel a quite unexpected one at that. Each time I went by the market thereafter, I couldn’t help paying attention to these two young salesgirls. They worked just as deftly as their senior fellow-workers, but at the same time significantly distinguished themselves from them. They were slender of figure, modestly but neatly dressed, makeup not overdone, and their movements were far more elegant than the others’. The girls continued working at the market for almost a year and then both disappeared at the same time.
It was about six months later, in the summertime, at the same market, that I noticed an elegant young woman walking beside the fruit stalls. She stood out from the crowd by her proud bearing and fashionable expensive attire. This striking young woman was accompanied by a dapper-looking gentleman carrying a basket filled with a variety of appetizing fruits.
It dawned on me that this young woman who was attracting all sorts of attention from the men around – as well as (no doubt) jealous glances from the women was none other than the friend of the cigarette salesgirl. I went over and explained to the young couple especially to the lady’s concerned companion the reason for my curiosity. Finally the woman recognised me. We sat down at a table in an open-air cafe and Natasha (as she was called) recounted to me the events that had taken place over the past year and a half. Her story went as follows:
The day when Katya had that incident with the customer in front of all the regulars we decided to quit our jobs so people wouldn’t laugh at us. You remember how Katya said back then that she was going to marry an English lord. And people laughed at her. We realised they would go on laughing and pointing fingers at us. But we didn’t manage to find work anywhere else. You see, we’d just finished high school, and didn’t make it when we applied to college. Well, all right, I got average marks, but I Katya was a real brain. She passed her exams with flying colours, but still didn’t get in. They’d cut back on the number of free college places, and she didn’t have the money to pay for her education – her mum makes a pittance, and there’s no dad. So we ended up taking sales jobs at the market, since they wouldn’t hire us anywhere else. We began working and swotting [studying hard] to sit the next year’s college exams. But a week after the incident at the market Katya all of a sudden turns to me and says:
“I’ve got to prepare myself to be worthy of being the wife of an English lord. D’you want to train along with me?”
I thought she was joking, but she was dead serious. Even back at school Katya had always been pretty obsessive about whatever she put her mind to. She went to the library and found the syllabus of a seminary (2) for young ladies, which she adapted to modern times. And we started training like crazy according to Katya’s syllabus. We did dancing and aerobics, we studied English and English history, along with the rules of etiquette and good manners. We watched political discussions on TV so we could hold conversation with intelligent people. Even while we were at work in our stall we tried to behave as though we were at a high-society gathering, so that our manners would acquire a natural feel. We earned money, but didn’t spend it on ourselves. We didn’t even buy makeup, so we could save. We were saving so we could have fancy outfits custom made, as well as for a trip to England.
Katya said, you see, that English lords would never come round a small market like this in Vladimir, which meant we had to go to England. Our chances would be far greater there. So we went to England with a tourist group. The two weeks there simply flew by. Of course, you understand, there were no English lords to greet us or take us around. And I really had no expectations for myself – I was just doing this to keep Katya company. But she actually had hopes. Once she gets something into her head, that’s it. She never stopped looking every Englishman in the face, searching for her intended. We even went to a dance club a couple of times, but nobody asked us to dance, not even once.
It was the day of our departure, and we were on our way out to the motor coach from our hotel, and Katya still kept looking around, ever hopeful. We stopped right on the hotel steps, when Katya suddenly puts her bag down, looks off to one side and says: “Here he comes!”
I look, and lo and behold, walking along the sidewalk toward us is a young man, minding his own business and paying no attention to us. Just as I expected, he came right up to where we were standing, but didn’t even glance at Katya and walked right by. And then all of a sudden Katya – coo, blow me away! – calls out to him.
The young man turns to look at us. Katya goes up to him slowly but confidently and says to him in English: “My name is Katya. I am from Russia. Now I am leaving to go to airport on a bus with my tour-group. I have approached you … I have feeling that I can make you a very good wife. I do not yet love you, but I shall be able to love you, and you will love me. We shall have good children together. A little boy and a little girl. We shall be happy together. And now, if you wish, you can accompany me to say good-bye at airport”
The young man just stood there staring intently at Katya without saying a word. He was dumbfounded, no doubt from the shock. Then he said he had an important business meeting, wished her bon voyage and walked off.
The whole way to the airport Katya sat staring out the window. We didn’t say a word to each other. Both Katya and I felt awkward in front of all the tourists who saw the scene in front of the hotel. I could literally feel my skin tingling at all those people making fun of Katya and accusing her. But when we arrived at the airport and were getting off the coach, right there was none other than this same young Englishlnan, greeting Katya with a huge bouquet of flowers in his hand. She put her bag down no, she simply let it fall to the pavement. She didn’t take the bouquet, but buried her head in his chest and began crying. He dropped the bouquet, and the flowers scattered all over. I helped the other tourists gather them up, while they just stood there. And the Englishman was stroking Katya’s head. And as though there were nobody else around, he kept telling her what a fool he was for almost letting fate slip through his fingers, how if he didn’t catch up with her, he would suffer for it his whole life, and kept on thanking Katya for finding him. Meanwhile, as it turned out, the plane’s departure was delayed. I shan’t tell you how, but I was the one who managed to delay it.
Her Englishman turned out to be from a family of British diplomats and he himself was about to be posted to some embassy. As soon as we got back to Russia, he started ringing up Katya every day. They’d talk for hours. Katya’s now in England, and pregnant. I think they really do love each other. And now I believe in love at first sight.
When Natasha finished telling me her amazing story, she gave a smile to her companion sitting beside her. I asked whether they had known each other long. And the young man answered:
“You see, I was in the same tourist group. When the Englishman’s flowers got strewn all over, Natasha started picking them up, and I began helping her. Now I carry her fruit basket for her. Who are we, compared to English lords?!”
Natasha lovingly placed her hand on her companion’s shoulder and said with a smile: “And just who are they compared to you ~ our Russian men?!”
Then the happy girl turned to me and said:”Andrei and I got married a month ago. And here we are, come to see my parents.”
After hearing the story of these girls, a lot of people might think: well, they were just lucky. Not a typical situation. But if I dare say it, the situation in this case was absolutely typical and entirely normal. More than that, I would affirm that other girls could predict a similar destiny for themselves if they are prepared to follow the pattern set by Katya and Natasha. Of course there may be certain differences – names, the type of suitor, and the time-frame involved – but a similar situation happening with others is already a predetermined fact. Predetermined by whom? By the girls themselves, their way of thinking and the consistent steps they take toward their goal. Think about it. Katya had a dream, or a goal: to marry an Englishman. What prompted this dream is unimportant. She was probably turned off by the atmosphere of the market, the drunken customers and how rude they were, or maybe the shameful taunts of the customer in question.
In any case, a dream was born. What of it? What young girl doesn’t dream of a prince driving a white Mercedes, and yet still ends up marrying a typical loser? In the vast majority of cases their dreams do not come true. I concede that, of course, but the reason they don’t come true is simply that their actions, or more precisely, their inaction in respect to their dream is like the anecdote about the lottery ticket when someone dreams about winning big at the lottery and even asks God for help, but doesn’t take the first elementary step of buying a single ticket. The girls began taking action, and a consistent pattern was realised: dream – thought – action. Try removing just one of these elements from the chain, and the girls’ fate would have turned out completely differently.
You Create Your Own Destiny
Man’s destiny! Many are wont to think that Man’s fate is decided by someone up there. But this ‘someone’ simply makes available to every Man the most powerful energy in the Universe – an energy capable of not only shaping its holder’s destiny; but of creating whole new galaxies. This energy is called human tbought.
It is not enough just to know that this is so. One must become consciously aware of this phenomenon – one must feel it.
How completely we are able to become aware of it, to feel and understand it, determines the degree to which the secrets of this vast Universe of ours unfold before us, the degree to which we perceive how its wonders – or, more precisely; its natural phenomena – work.
It is only the conscious awareness and acceptance of the energy of thought that will allow us to make our lives and the lives of our loved ones truly happy. And yet it is precisely a happy life that is predestined for Man on the Earth. And so we are obliged to persuade ourselves of the indisputability of the following conclusions:
First: Man is a thinking being
Second: tbe power of the energy of tbought bas no equal in tbe Universe: everytbing we see, including ourselves, is created by tbe energy of thougbt. We can name off millions of objects from a primitive hammer to a space ship, yet the appearance of each one of these is preceded by thought.
We can name off millions of objects from a primitive hammer to a space ship, yet the appearance of each one of these is preceded by thought.
Our imagination builds a material object in space unseen to our eyes. Just because we don’t yet glimpse its materialisation doesn’t mean that the object doesn’t exist. It is already constructed in mental space, and this is more significant than its subsequent materialisation.
A space ship is constructed by the thought of one or more people. We still don’t see it, we can’t touch it, yet at the same time it exists! It exists in a dimension invisible to us, but later it materialises, taking on a form we can see with our ordinary sight.
Which is more important in the construction of a space details according to the blueprints presented to him, or the thought of the designer and builder? Of course the physical labour on any project is absolutely necessary; but nothing can displace the primacy of tbougbt.
A real space ship can suffer a catastrophic accident, caused not by some kind of defective part, but always by an inadequately developed thought. In ordinary parlance it is known as tbougbtlessness.
Thought is capable of foreseeing any kind of accident. In thought there are no unforeseen situations. Yet all sorts of accidents and irregularities do happen. Why? Because of haste in turning the project into material reality; not allowing it to be sufficiently thought through.
Anyone who thinks this through on their own can come to the same indisputable conclusion: all objects that have ever been manufactured on the Earth are materialised thoughts.
Now it is vitally necessary to realise that absolutely all life situations, including life itself, are formed first of all in thought.
The world of living Nature which we see, including Man himself, was originally formed by God’s thought.
Just like God, Man is capable of forming with his thought not only new objects but his own life situations as well.
If your thought is insufficiently developed, or prevented by some cause from freely making use of its inherent energy and speed capabilities, your life situations will be influenced by somebody else’s thoughts – possibly the thoughts of your family, acquaintances, or society in general.
But note that even in this case your life situations are determined afore time by human thought. And you have only yourselves to blame if you have choked and imprisoned your own thinking, thereby subjecting yourselves to the will of another person’s thoughts, meaning that your successes or failures in life are already dependent on this other person or persons.
You may be persuaded of what I have just said through a variety of examples in life. Think what a Man does before becoming a famous performing artist? First of all he dreams about it, naturally, then thinks up a plan of how to attain his dream, and then steps into action. takes part in amateur productions, studies at an appropriate school, and then takes a job in the theatre, film studio or symphony orchestra.
Some people may protest and say that while everybody dreams of becoming the most famous performing artist, only a few actually achieve this, while others are obliged to look for work in another field that has nothing to do with a career in the arts. Besides the dream, one needs talent too. Yes, of course, that is true. But talent is also a product of the power of thought.
What about physical and natural gifts? They are significant, of course. But, then again, human thought is not so stupid as to inspire a legless person to enroll in a ballet school.
How can it be, the reader may wonder: if everything, even one’s profession and well-being, depended on one’s own thoughts, then surely everybody would be rich and famous, and there wouldn’t be any people eking out a pitiful existence, rummaging through garbage dumps in search of something to eat?
Well, now, let’s head off to a garbage dump, in the literal sense of the word.
I did this in the following manner. I let some stubble grow on my face, rumpled my hair and borrowed some old work clothes from a painter friend. Then I took a plastic bag and a stick and walked up to a garbage dumpster. I rummaged about with a stick in garbage and came up with several empty bottles, which I put into the plastic bag, before proceeding to the dumpster at a neighbouring building. My efforts were rewarded. I had been at the second dumpster no more than ten minutes – fifteen tops – when I was virtually set upon by a man wielding a metal rod in his hands.
“Keep your paws off what doesn’t belong to you,” he said in a tone that brooked no contradiction.
“You’re saying that this is your territory?” I asked calmly; taking a few steps back from the dumpster, at the same time handing him my plastic bag with the bottles.
“Whose else would it be?” the man replied, already sounding less aggressive than before. He took my bag and began raking through the contents of the garbage dump, paying no attention to me.
“Maybe you could show me where there’s some freebies around?” I enquired, adding: “I’ll make it worth your while.”
“White,” responded the unofficial owner of the dumpster.
I went to the store and picked up a bottle of ‘white’ vodka (3) along with a few snacks. Over drinks we got to know each other, and Pavel shared with me a lot of the tricks of his trade, and believe me, there were quite a few.
You have to know, for example, what days especially to guard against ‘transients’ like me invading and pinching one’s ‘property’. Especially after holidays, when a lot of bottles get tossed out. It is also important to know which refuse materials contain base metals, and how to collect them – some dealers pay more for glass containers and base metals. And to know what to do with discarded clothing that’s still fit to wear.
I attempted to change the subject.
While Pavel was capable of expressing his opinions on politics and the government, he did so with considerably less interest. He had a one-track mind everything revolved
around the dumpsters. As a final conclusive test I suggested the following to him:
“You know, Pavel, there’s a chap building a house not too far away who’s looking for a security guard over the winter, as well as to help in the construction, for which he’s willing to pay extra. And supply groceries to boot. Every week his driver brings potatoes, onions and cereal. You’re a decent fellow – he’ll hire you. If you like, we can go have a word with him.”
After a few drinks, as might be expected, we had become friends. Which made the sudden sharp shift in his mood all the more unexpected. First he spent about thirty seconds in intensive thought. Then after staring at me another thirty seconds in a kind of standoffish silence, he finally came out with what was on his mind:
“You think I’ve been drinkin’ and not realised what’s going on? What’s all this business, creep, about me being hired as a guard, just so’s you can take over my dumpsters?”
He didn’t even ask what kind ofwage a security guard might earn, or what kind of accommodations might be included, or what kind of work, specifically; he might have to do for the extra pay. His thought was completely concentrated on his dumpsters, working out the best way to take care of them and protect them from competitors.
So it turns out that this Man predetermined the course of his thought deciding the questions of his existence on the basis of garbage dumpsters – and then followed the direction of his thought.
One could cite quite a number of other examples confirming the indisputability of the fact that the creation of all material objects, life situations and social phenomena is preceded by the energy of thought.
One Man can influence another through his own thoughts. This is attested in ancient tales and parables. Here is what Anastasia’s grandfather had to say about the energy of human thought.
A Goddess of a Wife
“Yes, Vladimir, Man’s thought has access to energy unsurpassed. Many of the creations of this energy are either dismissed as magic or counted as miracles and ascribed to a higher power.
“Take, for example, the ‘miracle icons.’ Why would they suddenly become miraculous? Why would a piece of wooden board with a hand-painted image on it all of a sudden have the power to work miracles? It happens when iconographers imbue their work with a sufficient amount of their own mental energy. Those who look at the icon then add their own energy. People talk about a ‘prayed-over icon’ – in other words, an icon imbued with a goodly amount of the energy of human thoughts
“It used to be that iconographers knew about the properties of this great energy. Before approaching a particular work, they fasted to cleanse their body of impurities, at the
same time intensifying their thought. Then they entered into a state of detachment, focusing their energy on a single task – the painting of the icon. When it was completely finished, they spent another long period contemplating what they had done. And miracles were sometimes the result.”People sometimes see unusual phenomena, or various kinds of angels. But note that people invariably see only what they are thinking about. They invariably see only the images they believe in.
“Christians, for exalnple, can see only their own saints. Moslems see only theirs. That is because they are beholding the projections of their own or the general collective thought.
“Back only fifteen hundred years ago there were people who understood the power and properties of the energy of human thought. There are parables about this. Would you
like to hear one?”
“Yes, I would.”
“I shall translate it from its ancient tongue into contemporary language, and change the setting to modern terms to make it more understandable. But tell me first, how does a
man who has been married to a woman for a long time behave. What does he do when he comes home?”
“Well, a lot of husbands, as long as they don’t habitually reach for the bottle, will sit down in front of the television set and either read a paper or watch TV They might take out the garbage, if their wife asks them to.”
”And what about the women?”
“There’s no question about that – they get supper ready in the kitchen, and afterward wash the dishes.”
“Fine. That will help me translate the ancient parable into modern terms.”
Once upon a time there lived an ordinary husband and wife. The wife’s name was Elena, her husband was Ivan. Every day the husband “would come home from work, sit down in his favourite chair by the television set and begin reading the newspaper. His wife Elena would get supper ready. As she gave Ivan his supper she would nag him that he never did anything useful around the place, and was not earning enough money. Ivan got irritated by his wife’s nagging.
But instead of giving her some kind of gruff response, he simply thought to himself: She herself ‘s a dirty slut, and she’s telling me what to do. But when we got married, sbe was so totally different ~ she was beautiful, she was tender.
One day when this nagging wife demanded Ivan take out the garbage, he reluctantly tore himself away from the TV and headed outdoors with the dustbin. Upon returning, he stopped in the doorway and turned to God in his thought:
“O, Lord! O, Lord! Just look at how lousy my life’s turned out! Do I really have to while away all my remaining years with such a nagging and ugly wife? This isn’t life, it’s sheer torture!”
And then all of a sudden Ivan heard the quiet voice of God:
“My son, I could help alleviate your troubles, I could give you a splendid goddess of a wife, only if your neighbours noticed a sudden change in your life, they might become greatly astonished. Let us work this way: I shall change your wife just a little at a time. I shall imbue her with the spirit of a goddess and improve her outward appearance. Only you must remember that if you want to live with a goddess, you have to make your own life worthy of a goddess.”
“Thank you, O Lord! Any man would be happy to change his life for the sake of a goddess. But tell me: when will You start making changes in my wife?”
“I shall begin a few little changes right away. And minute by minute I shall be changing her for the better.”
Ivan went back into his home, sat down in his chair, picked up the paper and turned the television back on. Only he did not feel like reading, or watching any TV films. He could not wait to peek and see whether his wife had started changing – even just a little.
He got up and opened the kitchen door. Leaning against the door-post, he began watching his wife intently. She was standing with her back to him, washing the supper dishes. All at once Elena felt herself being watched and turned toward the doorway. Their eyes met. Ivan looked at his wife and thought: No, I don’t see any changes going on in my wife. Seeing the unusual attention her husband was paying her and not being able to figure it out, Elena all at once straightened her hair, and a rosy blush came over her cheeks as she asked:
“What is it, Ivan? Why are you looking at me so intently?”
The husband could not think of what to say. Embarrassed, he blurted out:
“Well, maybe … the dishes … maybe I could help you wash them? I was just thinking about it, for some reason.”
“The dishes? You help me?” the wife echoed in surprise, taking off her much-soiled apron. “Well, you see, I’ve already done them.” Wow! She’s changing right before my eyes! Ivan thought. Look how much prettier she’s become all of a sudden!
And then he started drying the dishes.
The next day after work Ivan couldn’t wait to get home.
He couldn’t wait to see how his nagging wife was little by little being transformed into a goddess. Hasn’t she got a lot of goddess in her already? But I haven’t changed even a little bit myself, as usual In any case, I should buy her some flowers, so I won’t fall flat on my face before a goddess!
Upon opening the door to his home, Ivan stood entranced in amazement. There before him stood Elena in her party dress, the same one he had bought her last year. She was
sporting a neat hairdo, complete with a bright ribbon. was dumbfounded. With some awkwardness he offered the flowers to Elena, not being able to take his eyes off her. She accepted the flowers and gave a little gasp. She lowered her eyelids and a rosy blush filled her cheeks. Oh, what marvellous eyelids goddesses have! What meekness they express! What extraordinary inner beauty, and outward looks!
And Ivan gasped in turn, upon seeing the table set with their fancy china and two candles burning on the table, along with two wine-glasses and the food with its divinely tempting aromas.
He sat down to the table, and Elena his wife sat down opposite him. But then suddenly she jumped up and said:
“I’m so sorry, I forgot to turn the TV on for you. But here, I’ve got today’s paper for you.”
“Never mind the TV; and I don’t really feel like reading the paper either – they all keep saying the same thing,” Ivan responded with sincerity. “I’d rather you tell me what you’d like to do tomorrow, Saturday.”
Completely overwhelmed, Elena asked in amazement:
“What would you like to do?”
“Well, I happened to pick us up a couple of theatre tickets today. Anyway; tomorrow afternoon, I thought you might like to do a bit of shopping. Since we’re going to the theatre, I thought we’d drop into a store first and buy you a dress suitable for the occasion.”
Ivan just caught himself in time from blurting out his cherished secret: a dress suitable for a goddess. Embarrassed, he looked at her again and gave another gasp. A goddess was indeed sitting at the table before him. Her face was beaming with joy; and her eyes were sparkling. Her restrained smile was just slightly inquisitive.
O Lord, how marvellous goddesses are after all! But if she keeps on getting better day by day, can I become worthy of this goddess? Ivan mused. All of a sudden, a thought struck him like lightning: I’ve got to do it! I’ve got to do it while this goddess is here with me. I’ve got to ask her, plead with her to bear my child. A child which will come from me and from this most marvellous goddess!
”A penny for your thoughts, Ivan! Could that be excitement I see in your face?” Elena asked her husband.
He sat there excitedly, not sure how to talk about so precious a thing. This was no piece of cake asking a goddess to bear a child! This was not a gift God had promised him. He did not know how to tell her about his wish. Fumbling with a corner of the tablecloth, Ivan got up from the table and pleaded, blushing:
“I don’t know… Do you think… But I… wanted to say …for a long time now …I want to have a child with you my beautiful goddess!”
Whereupon she, Elena, came over to Ivan, her husband. From her love-filled eyes a tear of joy rolled down her rosy cheek. She placed her hand on Ivan’s shoulder, and her breath flared in a warm flush. What a night that was! What a morning! And oh, what a day it is! How marvellous it is to live with a goddess! thought Ivan, as he bundled up his second grandson for an outdoor stroll.
“What did you understand from this parable, Vladimir?”
“I understood all of it. God didn’t actually help Ivan. All he did was listen to God’s voice. Ivan made his own wife a goddess through his thought.”
“Of course, you are right: Ivan created his own happiness with his thought. He made his wife a goddess and changed himself. But God did help Ivan.”
“Back when God gave everything to each of us, when He was contemplating the creation of Man. And explaining everything to the first Man he created. Do you remember God’s words from the book Co-creation (4)? He said: ”’My son, you are infinite, you are eternal, within you are your dreams of creation.”
“These words, Vladimir, are still true today. Every Man has within himself creative dreams. The question is only: in which direction are they aimed? And how powerful is the thought, including its energy, in His sons and daughters living on the Earth today?”
If you have read Tolkien’s Lord Of The Rings saga, this article would be very interesting to read:
J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings is one of the most enchanting and successful tales of all time. First issued in the 1950s, this famous trilogy could just as well have emanated from the Dark Ages or medieval times, for it has all the qualities and attributes of the most ancient Grail and Ring traditions. This was made possible by the fact that Tolkien (an Oxford professor of Anglo-Saxon and English language) had the legendary wealth of ages at his fingertips and moulded his story accordingly.
In considering the history of the Ring Quest, its parallel association with the Quest for the Holy Grail becomes increasingly apparent, as do the origins of fairies, elves, pixies, sprites, gnomes and goblins. Ring lore is also deeply rooted in many of the best loved nursery tales, and provides the essential facts behind numerous time-honored characters of popular legend.
Grail stories are generally associated with Arthurian knights roaming the Wasteland in search of the sacred relic. But the genre also embodies many other questing tales, incorporating such characters as Cinderella, Robin Hood, Sleeping Beauty and Count Dracula. Each account holds its own separate mystery and fascination, but it is not generally understood that they all stem from a common historical base which is rooted in the ancient culture of the Ring Lords.
Even though some of the themes have their origins in very old lore, the majority of these tales were newly slanted from the Dark Ages onwards, when the Church set its sights against the Ring tradition. This was especially the case from medieval times when the persecution of heretics was in full swing, leading to the brutal Inquisitions which began in the 13th century.
From around 4000 BC, the Ring was a primary device ofthe Anunnaki overlords, who were recorded as having been responsible for the establishment of municipal government and kingly practice in ancient Mesopotamia. In view of this, it is of particular relevance that, in 1967, when Professor Tolkien was asked about the Middle-earth environment of The Lord of the Rings, he wrote that he perceived its setting to be about 4000 BC.
In this respect, the root of Tolkien’s popular tale was extracted directly from Saxon folklore and was not actually new in concept. Indeed, the early Saxon god Wotan (the equivalent of the Sumerian Lord, Anu) was said to have ruled the Nine Worlds of the Rings – having the ninth Ring (the One Ring) to govern eight others.
The contested ownership of the One Ring, as related in The Lord of the Rings, is little different to the enduring quest for the Holy Grail; they are both quests for the maintenance of sovereignty. But, in both fact and fiction, the Ring and the Grail are each seen to be misappropriated by those who perceive them as weapons of power.
As the generations passed from ancient Mesopotamian and Egyptian times, the ideal of dynastic kingship spread through the Mediterranean lands into the Balkans, the Black Sea regions and Europe. But, in the course of this, the crucial essence of the old wisdom was lost and this gave rise to dynasties that were not of the original kingly race. Instead, many were unrelated warrior chiefs who gained their thrones by might of the sword.
The sacred culture of the ancients was, nevertheless, retained in the Messianic line of King David of Judah (around 1008 BC), whose significance was in his pharaonic heritage, not in his generally portrayed descent from Abraham and the Shemite strain. It was because of this particular inheritance that David’s son, Solomon the Wise, was enabled to create his Egyptian-style Temple project in Jerusalem.
This led to a Holy Land revival of the pharaonic and one-time Mesopotamian Rosi-crucis movement at a time when Egypt was beset by foreign influences, first from Libya, Nubia and Kush, and then from further afield. Resultantly, the traditional marriage arrangements of the pharaohs and princesses gave way to diplomatic alliances.
The Rosi-crucis (whose supporters were called Rosicrucians) is often misidentified as if it referred to a Rosy (or Red) Cross – but in fact the term has a rather different origin. It stems from the old Greek ’rosi’, meaning ’dew’, and from ’crucis’ meaning ’fire-cup’ (as in the word ’crucible’). Hence, the Rosi-crucis was the dew-cup of fire – or fiery cup of the waters.
In symbolic form, the Rosi-crucis was the original and longest standing mark of sovereignty – and this is where the secondary Rosy Cross definition comes into play, for this insignia was indeed a red cross within a ring. The early Bible writers condemned this royal device as being the Mark of Cain.
This same emblem was deemed to be symbolic of the Holy Grail, whose representative form as the Dew-cup (or Chalice) emanated directly from the Sumerian word ’gra-al’. This defined the ’nectar of supreme excellence’ – the prestigious legacy of the Anunnaki queen Nin-kharsag, great mother of the kingly bloodline.
Originally, and for the longest time, the Ring was a symbol of perpetually divine justice, which was measured by the Rod. In ancient depictions various Sumerian overlords, kings and queens are individually portrayed holding the Rod and Ring devices – characters such as Marduk and Lilith, Shamesh, Ur-Nammu, Ashur, Samael and others from the 3rd and 2nd millenniums BC. In some instances the Rod is clearly marked in calculable units (like a modern ruler). In Babylonia it was referred to as the Rule – and the one who held the Rule was the designated ‘ruler’: which is from where the governmental term derives.
In time, rather than holding the golden rings, the sovereigns began to place them on their heads where, from a general course of ornate embellishment through the ages, they ultimately became crowns, while the Rod (or Rule) evolved into the royal scepter. In the course of this, the Rosi-crucis emblem of the cross and circle also became a solid object – a cross surmounted on a sphere – to become the Orb of sovereign regalia.
In all the Grail romances, and in the tales of the Ring, the message is relentlessly clear: in the wrong hands, both the Ring and the Grail can bring disaster. The power of the Ring has to be withstood, otherwise it will enslave its master, whereas the Grail will retaliate with a vengeance if misused. Either way, the moral is the same in that, ultimately, power is self-destructive when achieved through selling one’s soul. Consequently, the Ring can be a halo or a crown, but it can equally become a noose.
There is, however, an essential difference between Tolkien’s ’One Ring’, which is portrayed as dark and divisive, and the Golden Ring of Grail romance, which is a ring of love and enlightenment. The latter (the ring with which Arthur made his vow to Guinevere) was further symbolized by the iron-clad ring of knights who sat at the Round Table – a Ring that was broken (leading the land into chaos and waste) when Guinevere was unfaithful to Arthur with Lancelot.
Prior to the year 751, kings of the Grail succession were priests in their own right; they were priest-kings, known as Fisher Kings. But, when their rights to priesthood were undermined by the Church, the legacy was forsaken in all but the Gaelic realms.
Before this, the representative substances of priest-kingship were Gold (for nobility), Frankincense (for priesthood) and Myrrh (for knowledge). These were the very substances presented to Jesus by the Magi in the New Testament, thereby positively identifying him as a dynastic priest-king of the Grail bloodline. The significance of this Magian presentation has been lost however, within a contrived fable of humble birth in a stable, which is not mentioned in any original Gospel.
Yet, for some obscure reason, the Grail symbolism was retained by the Church in its Eucharist – the Communion sacrament, wherein the wine (figuratively the Gra-al blood of Christ) is drunk from the sacred chalice of the Rosi-crucis. In this regard, the true symbolism of the ancient custom, which began in Anunnaki times, has been strategically veiled, while both Grail lore and Ring lore are denounced by the Church as unofficial heresies.
As confirmed in historical records, the disputes between the descendant Grail family and the Church establishment prevailed for centuries because of their conflict of interests. From the 1st century, Imperial Rome had decreed that the Messianic heirs should be hunted down and put to the sword. Then, once the Roman Church was formally operative from the 4th century, the sacred dynasty was forever damned by the bishops.
It was this formal damnation which led to such events as the Albigensian Crusade in 1209 and the subsequent Catholic Inquisitions, for these brutal assaults by the papal machine were specifically directed against the upholders and champions of the original concept of Grail kingship, as against the style of pseudo-monarchy which had been implemented by the Bishops of Rome. In practical terms, Church kingship has prevailed from the 8th century and has continued, through the ages, to the present day. But the fact is that, under strict terms of sovereign practice, all such monarchies and their affiliated governments have been invalid.
Church kingship is precisely that with which we have become so familiar. It applies to all monarchs who achieve their regnal positions by way of Church coronation by the Pope or other Christian leader (in Britain, by the Archbishop of Canterbury). In terms of true kingship, there was no necessity for coronation because kingly and queenly inheritance were always regarded as being ’in the blood’ – to be precise, in the DNA of the Gra-al.
In order to understand the legacy of the Ring, we must look at how Church kingship was made possible in the first place by way of a document called the Donation of Constantine – a document which led to just about every social injustice that has since been experienced in the Christian world. All monarchical and governmental practice has, for centuries, been based upon the initial precept of this charter but, in reality, its dogmatic precept is wholly invalid.
When the Donation of Constantine made its first appearance in the middle 8th century it was alleged to have been written by Emperor Constantine some 400 years earlier, although strangely never produced in the interim. It was even dated and carried his supposed signature. What the document proclaimed was that the Emperor’s appointed Pope was Christ’s elected representative on Earth, with the power to ’create’ kings as his subordinates since his palace ranked above all the palaces in the world!
The provisions of the Donation were put into operation by the Vatican in 751, whereupon the Merovingian Fisher Kings of the Grail bloodline in Gaul were deposed and a whole new dynasty was supplemented by way of a family of hitherto mayors. They were dubbed Carolingians and their only king of any significance was the legendary Charlemagne. By way of this strategy, the whole nature of monarchy changed from being an office of community guardianship to one of absolute rule and, by virtue of this monumental change, the long-standing Grail Code of princely service was forsaken as European kings became servants of the Church instead of being servants of the people.
The fact is, however, that over 500 years ago in the Renaissance era, proof emerged that the Donation was an outright forgery. Its New Testament references relate to the Latin Vulgate Bible – an edition translated and compiled by St. Jerome, who was not born until AD 340, some 26 years after Constantine supposedly signed the document! Apart from that, the language of the Donation, with its numerous anachronisms, is that of the 8th century and bears no relation to the writing style of Constantine’s day. It is known today as “the most famous forgery in the world“, but despite this, the Donation’s overwhelming dictate, which cemented the Pope as the supreme spiritual and temporal head of Christendom, has prevailed regardless.
Prior to the Grail’s formal subjugation by the Church Inquisition in the Middle Ages, the victimized heterodox Christians (or ’heretics’ as they were called) included the Cathars – the Pure Ones of the Languedoc region in the South of France. The Cathars were fully conversant with the Ring Lord culture and, in accordance with tradition, referred to the Messianic bloodline as the Elven race, venerating them as the Shining Ones. This is of course wholly indicative of the very same style afforded to the ancient Anunnaki – the great sons of Lord Anu, also called the Anna-nagge: the Shining Ones.
In the language of old Provence, a female elf was an ’albi’, and Albi was the name given to the main Cathar centre in Languedoc. This was in deference to the matrilinear heritage of the Grail dynasty, for the Cathars were supporters of the original Albi-gens: the Elven bloodline which had descended through the Grail queens of yore such as Nin-kharsag, Eresh-kigal, Lilith, Miriam, Bathsheba and Mary Magdalene. It was for this very reason that, when Simon de Montfort and the armies of Pope Innocent III descended upon the Languedoc region in 1209, it was called the Albigensian Crusade.
Through some thirty-five years, tens of thousands of innocent people were slaughtered in this savage campaign, all because the inhabitants of the region were upholders of the original concept of Grail kingship, as against the inappropriate style of monarchy which had been established by the papal machine and its fabricated document of charter.
The concept of calling the princely race of the Grail the Shining Ones, while also defining them as Elves, dates well back into ancient Bible times and can be traced into Mesopotamia (modern Iraq) and Canaan (Palestine). The ancient word ’El’, which was used to identify a god or lofty-one (as in El Elyon and El Shaddai) actually meant Shining in old Mesopotamian Sumer. To the north in Babylonia, the derivative ’Ellu’ meant Shining One, as did ’Ilu’ in Akkad. Subsequently, the word spread across Europe to become ’Ellyl’ in Wales, ’Aillil’ in Ireland, and ’Elf’ in Saxony and England.
The plural of El was Elohim, the very word used in old Bible texts to denote the gods, but strategically mistranslated to conform to the Judaeo-Christian’One God’ image. Interestingly, in Gaelic Cornwall, South West England, the word ’el’ was the equivalent of the Anglo-Saxon ’engel’ and the old French ’angele’ which, in English, became ’angel’.
There exists in Iran (ancient Persia) and the Canary Islands a large plant called the Dragontree. This plant is of the lily variety, and its resin is known as dragon’s blood. The red extract was used as a ceremonial dye in the East, where it was referred to as ’lac’, whose derivative ’lac’ or ’lake’ pigment is found today in the artists’ paint colour Scarlet Lake.
Dragonswere very important to the descendant Shining Ones, who were anointed upon their kingly installation with the fatty oil of the sacred dragon – essentially a large four-legged monitor native to the Euphrates valley. In Mesopotamia, this creature was called the Mûs-hûs, and in Egypt his equivalent was the Messeh. On anointing, the kings were reckoned to gain the prowess of the sacred beast, becoming Messehs in their own right – and it is from this that the Hebrew term Messiah (meaning Anointed One) derived. Jesus was in no way unique in this regard – all the successive kings of the early Albigensian line were Messiahs.
By virtue of the Dragontree, it is easy to recognize why the blood of the dragon was always associated with the essence of the lily – and indeed why the Grail queens of yore were often given applicable names such as Lily, Lilith, Luluwa, Lilutu and Lillet. It is, in fact from the very tradition of the ’lac’ pigment that the family name of du Lac became prominent in Arthurian lore – as for example the Burgundian dynasty of Queen Viviane du Lac, mother of Lancelot du Lac. This was translated into English to become Lancelot of the Lake, but its more correct representation was Lancelot of the dragon blood.
Alongside this, the Grail dynasty was also variantly styled the House del Acqs, meaning ’of the waters’, from which came the queenly tradition of the Ladies of the Lake. The Rosi-crucis (or Dew-cup) – the emblem of the Holy Grail – was itself identified with the Messianic blood held within the sacred chalice of the maternal womb. It can, accordingly, be seen that the styles of du Lac and del Acqs are entirely synonymous, as are the historical traditions of the Dragon and the Grail. These conjoined traditions are especially significant in the story of the ’blood and water’ which flowed from Jesus’s side at the Crucifixion – being emblematic of the fact that he (Jesus) was truly a kingly dynast of the Shining Ones (Anunnaki).
The concept of fairies (the fair folk) was born directly from Dragon and Ring Lord cultures, being a derivative of the Greek ’phare’, meaning ’great house’. (it is from this that the word ’pharaoh’ also derives). In the Gaelic world, certain royal families (especially those of the Pendragons) were said to carry the fairy blood – that is to say, the fate or destiny of the Grail bloodline and of humankind at large – while the Elf-maidens of the Albi-gens were the designated guardians of the earth, starlight and forest. It is for these reasons that fairies and elves have so often been portrayed as shoemakers and lamplighters, for the fairy cobblers made the shoes which measured the steps of life, while the Shining Ones of the elven race were there to light the way.
In national terms, although fairies present a widespread image, they are particularly associated with Ireland, where they are epitomized by the ancient people of the Tuatha Dé Danann. This formidable king tribe was, nevertheless, mythologized by the Christian monks, who rewrote the majority of Irish history to suit their own Church’s vested interest in Eire. From a base of the monastic texts (which arose onwards from medieval times) it is generally stated that these people were the supernatural tribe of the agricultural goddess Danaë of Argos, or perhaps of the Aegean Mother-goddess Danu. But their true name, rendered in its older form, was Tuadhe d’Anu – and as such, they were the people (or tribe) of Anu, the great sky god of the Anunnaki.
Onwards from the year 751, the Church sought all possible measures to diminish the status of any royal strain emanating from the original Ring Lords so that the fraudulent Donation of Constantine could be brought into play. Henceforth, only the subjugative Church could determine who was and was not a king, while the elves and fairies of the Albi-gens were maneuvered from the forefront of history into a realm of apparent fantasy and legend.
In this regard, it is significant that the Elves in Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings are quite unlike the cute little characters of many fairy tales; they are actually larger and more powerful than average mortals. They are also endowed with greater powers of wisdom; they ride magical horses and closely resemble the ancient king tribe of the Tuadhe d’Anu. Settling in Ireland from about 800 BC, the Tuadhe d’Anu hailed from the Central European lands of Scythia, the Black Sea kingdoms which stretched from the Carpathian mountains and Transylvanian Alps, across to the Russian River Don. They were strictly known as the Royal Scyths and their classification as fates or fairies occurred because they were masters of a transcendent intellect called the Sidhé, which was known to the druids as the Web of the Wise.
As the Church rose to power following the 8th-century implementation of the Donation of Constantine, so the ’underground stream’, which supported the true Albi-gens, found strategic methods of preserving the old culture of the royal bloodline. In the course of this, and based upon a traditional principle of folklore and legend, the fairy tale concept was born – stories which were not unlike many of the parables inherent in the New Testament Gospels. They were likewise contrived ’for those with ears to hear’, while others among the uninitiated would perceive them simply as fanciful children’s entertainment.
A key focal message built into these fairy tales was an understanding of the importance of perpetuating the family line of the Sangréal (Blood Royal), regardless of the power of the bishops and the Church’s puppet kings. The whole scenario was presented, time after time, as if it were a struggling nightmare, wherein the female (the Elf-maiden who carried the essential mitochondrial DNA) was out of reach of the Grail prince, so that his torturous quest to find her was akin to the quest for the Holy Grail itself.
Consequently, many of the tales which emanated from this base were stories of lost brides and usurped kingship, based upon the Church’s subjugation of the Grail bloodline. The fairy tale ideal was essentially geared to relate the truth of these persecutions. They were allegorical accounts of the predicament of the Messianic family – the Ring Lords of the Sangréal, whose fairies and elves (having been maneuvered from the mortal plane of orthodoxy and status quo) were confined to a seemingly Otherworld existence. They emerged as tales of valiant princes who were turned into frogs; of Swan knights who roamed the Wasteland and of Grail princesses locked in towers, or put to sleep for hundreds of years. In the course of their persecution, the Elf-maidens were pricked with bodkins, fed with poisoned apples, subjected to spells or condemned to servitude, while their champions swam great lakes, battled through thickets and scaled mighty towers to secure and protect the matrilinear heritage of the Albi-gens.
These romantic legends include such well-known stories as the Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Snow White and Rapunzel. In all cases, the underlying theme is the same, with the princess kept (through drugging, imprisonment or some form of restraint) out of reach of the prince, who has to find her and release her in order to preserve the dynasty and perpetuate the line.
It was during the period of France’s Carolingian dynasty (the dynasty of Emperor Charlemagne), which began in 751, that the seeds of most of these popular stories were planted, and it is because of the inherent truths which lie behind the stories that we find them so naturally appealing. Some academics argue that fairy tales survive and thrive because they are often based upon a ’rags-to-riches’ doctrine, but this is not the case. They survive because deep within the Western psyche is an inherent, inbred awareness that the Grail (symbolized by the Lost Bride) has to be found if the Wasteland is to return to fertility.
The Rapunzel story relates that, in order to function as an effective seer, Rapunzel was confined to a tower by an enchantress as a measure of protection against the world at large – in essence to preserve her maidenly virtue and the supernatural power related to that virtue. Hence, as in all similar stories, although the lost bride has been confined (whether by fair means or foul), she always emerges in a fit mental and physical state for the Grail prince.
Another important facet of the desired virginal portrayal, as evident in the tale of Rapunzel, is the allegorical symbolism of long hair. Rapunzel’s golden locks are presented as being plaited into a lengthy braid which the prince used to scale the tower. Before eventually being freed, however, Rapunzel’s hair was cut off by the enchantress, thereby implying the release of the maiden’s chastity to the wilderness. The importance of very long hair was that it afforded an appropriate veil of modesty even when in a naked state. Although perhaps physically or metaphorically divested of clothes (as symbolized by the willing or compulsory subordination to another), the Elf-maiden with tresses was never vulnerable; her dignity was always preserved and neither her body nor soul was ever bared until the appropriate time.
The oldest complete version of the Ring Cycle comes from the Norse mythology of the Volsunga Saga. This was described by the English poet and designer William Morris as “the great story of the North which should be to all our race what the tale of Troy was to the Greeks”. Compiled from more than forty separate legends, the 13th-century Icelandic tale relates to the god Odin, to the kingdom of the Nine Worlds and to a dark forest called Mirkwood – a name later repeated by Tolkien in The Lord of the Rings.
It also tells of how Prince Sigmund of the Volsung dynasty is the only warrior able to pull the great sword of Odin from a tree in which the god had driven it to its hilt – as replicated in the Arthurian story of the sword and the stone. Additionally, we learn of the Water-dwarf Andarvi, whose magical One Ring of red-gold could weave great wealth and power for its master – precisely as depicted in all related Ring legends.
Contemporary with the Volsunga Saga was a very similar tale which appeared in and around Burgundy in the 1200s: a Middle High German epic called The Nibelungenlied. In this account, which follows a similar path, the hero is called Siegfried and the tale is given a knightly gloss of the Gothic era, while unfortunately losing some of the pagan enchantment of the Northern legend. No musical composer has done so much to preserve the legacy of Ring lore as Richard Wagner, whose renowned opera, The Ring of the Nibelung, was largely drawn from the Burgundian folklore of The Nibelungenlied and, to some extent, from the Volsunga Saga.
Over the years, many people have likened Tolkien’s wizard, Gandalf, to Merlin of the Arthurian tales. At the same time, Tolkien’s Aragorn has been likened to King Arthur but, as Tolkien himself pointed out (in a letter written in 1967), there was really a closer similarity between Aragorn and the historical Charlemagne. The challenge which faced Charlemagne in the 9th century (having been charged by the Pope to establish a viable Empire from various disunited kingdoms) was not unlike that which confronted Aragorn, who reunited the divided kingdoms of Middle-earth in The Lord of the Rings. But there was a marked difference in practice, for Aragorn was far more like Arthur in having an advisory wizard, whereas Charlemagne did not because the Church would not consent to royal counsellors outside its own appointees.
Aragorn’s was, therefore, more of a Gaelic-style environment, with his enemy being the evil Sauron of Mordor. Charlemagne, on the other hand, was supposedly a champion of the Roman Church whose adversaries were the supporters of the unlawfully ousted Merovingian establishment – an establishment to which Aragorn would personally have been well suited. The difficulty one has in understanding Charlemagne is that, for all the apparent Carolingian attachment to the Vatican, he does not seem to have been wholly committed to the Roman ideal and clearly inherited a strong contrary legacy from his mother, who was a daughter of the Merovingian Princess Blanche Fleur.
Undeterred by the Donation of Constantine, which had enabled his father, King Pepin, to usurp the Merovingian throne, Charlemagne retained advocates of both the Grail Church and the Roman Church at his Court. He was not even too keen on the idea of becoming Holy Roman Emperor but, on Christmas Day in the year 800, while in the Roman Basilica of St. Peter’s in the company of several bishops, Pope Leo III crept up behind him and placed the Imperial crown on his head without warning!
Traditionally, the Albi-gens (Elven bloodline) has been identified with water – a concept that can be traced back some five millennia to Tiâmatthe Dragon Queen. Her Akkadian name actually means ’salt waters’ and had its equivalent in the Hebrew ’tehôm’ (or ’tehômot’ in the plural), as used in Old Testament references to ’the deep’.
The name Mary, which is associated with the Messianic line (as in the Blessed Mary, Mary Magdalen, etc.), was itself linked to the sea (as in the French: ’mer’, and its Latin equivalent) – also with water in general. It is an English form, based upon a Greek variant of the Hebrew Miriam along with the Egyptian Mery, meaning ’beloved’ (as in Merytaten: Beloved of Aten). For this reason, in some conventual orders, the nuns still use the titular style of Mary in front of their baptismal given names: Sister Mary Louise, Sister Mary Theresa and the like.
Alongside the Mary Magdalene movement in 1st-century Provence was that of her colleague Mary Jacob. She was the New Testament wife of Cleopas (as given in the Gospel of John) who had accompanied the Magdalene to Gaul in AD 44, as detailed in The Acts of Magdalene in the Vatican Archives. St. Mary Jacob was a Nazarene priestess, who became better known in Europe as Mary the Gypsy or Mary the Egyptian (from which the word ’gypsy’ derived). In England her cult was widespread in medieval times and her Oath of Wedlock was referred to as the Merrie – from which the verb ’to marry’ derives, as does the tag applied to Merrie Englande. Often depicted with a fish-tail, Mary the Gypsy was an original ’merrie-maid’ (a mermaid), and she was given the attributive name Marina in the Middle Ages. She is portrayed as such alongside Mary Magdalene in a window at the Church of St. Marie in Paris, and her memory is preserved in Maid Marian and the Merrie Men of the Robin Hood legends.
In ancient Egypt it was common practice for the pharaohs to marry their sisters in order to progress their kingship through the female line. These wives were often the pharaohs’ half-sisters, born of their mothers by different fathers, for it was the mitochondrial DNAof the matrilinear succession that was important to the dynasties. (Although mitochondria is inherited from mothers by both sons and daughters, it is only passed on by the daughters, since this DNA resides within the female egg cells.)
It can be seen from plotted genealogical charts of the era that, although Egypt had many successive kingly dynasties, these houses were only renamed and renumbered when a pharaoh died without a male heir. The important thing was that his queen had a female heiress, and it was upon that daughter’s marriage into another male line that a new dynasty began. Many pharaohs had a number of strategically chosen wives and often married into the various strains of the original royal blood of Mesopotamia from which the early pharaonic dynasties were themselves descended. In such cases, the crown princes would marry the daughters of their fathers’ second or junior queens, thereby perpetuating an apparent patrilinear descent, but in fact heightening the female blood of their line in favour of successive generations.
The story of matrilinear royal descent traces back thousands of years to the very dawn of recorded time when the great Anunnaki Lord of the Sky wasAnu. He is documented on clay tablets and cylinder seals from the 3rd millennium BC, discovered in the Sumerian delta eden of the Persian Gulf. His queenly consorts were his sisters: Antu, Lady of the Sky, and Ki, the Earth Mother.
Anu had two sons: Enlil (whose mother was Ki) and Enki (whose mother was Antu). Enki had two wives, one of whom was his half-sister Nîn-khursag, the Lady of Life. By the same token, Enlil similarly had two wives, including Nîn-khursag who was, therefore, consort to each of her brothers. This deiform family had descended from the great Mother Goddess Tiâmat – described in the Enûma elish (the original Creation account which preceded the writing of the Old Testament’s book of Genesis by more than 2000 years) as ’She who bore them all’.
The rule of kingly descent through the senior female line appears to have been established from the outset when a dispute over entitlement arose between the brothers Enki and Enlil. The Anunnaki overlords were said to have governed by way of a Grand Assembly of councillors who sat at Nippur. They consisted of eight members (seven males and a female), who held the Rings of divine justice, along with their president, Anu, who held the One Ring to bind them all. This conforms precisely with the Nine Kingdoms of the Volsunga Saga, which cites Odin as the ultimate presidential Ring Lord. As the original god-kings of Mesopotamia, this Assembly was said to have introduced kingly practice which, according to the Sumerian King List (dating from before 2000 BC) was ’lowered from heaven’.
The Anunnaki fraternal dispute arose when Anuresigned his presidency of the Grand Assembly, at which point his elder son Enlil became the apparent candidate. His brother Enki challenged this on the basis that, although he was younger than Enlil, he was the senior son and royal successor because his mother, Antu, was Anu’s senior sister, whereas Enlil’s mother, Ki, was Antu’s junior. Therefore, claimed Enki,
“I am the great brother of the gods. I am he who has been born as the first son of the divine Anu”.
As such, it was his mother Antu who held the primary office of queenship, and among her variously recorded titles, the later Kassite Kings of Mesopotamia (from around 1750 BC) called her the Lady of the Fire-stone, granting her the name Barat-Anna. This derived from the Kassite royal stem BRT (rather like the modrn HRH) and from the Akkadian An-na (meaning Fire-stone). Barat-Anna (Barati to the Phoenicians) was the Great Mother of the Air and Sea, the Goddess of Light and Fire who was later identified with Diana of the Nine Fires. Her symbol was the Rosi-crucis (the Cup of the waters) – a cross within a circle which, as we have seen, was the original emblem of the Grail bloodline from the 4th millennium BC. On early Phoenician coins, it is significant that Barat-Anna is portrayed sitting on the sea-shore with the Rosi-crucis emblem beneath her chair. This very same image was transported by the Kassites into the Gaelic realms of Europe and, eventually, found its way onto the coins of Britain, where Barat-Anna was redefined as Britannia and given a torch to signify her fire-alchemy status.
From the 17th century, when Frances la belle Stuart (the daughter of Lord Blantyre) modelled for the updated Britannia image used on British pennies until recent times, the Rosi-crucis emblem was enlarged and adapted to become the Union Jack shield, but it remained a rounded device. Also, the torch of fire was replaced by a lighthouse and Britannia was given a trident but, in all other respects, this supposed unique symbol of Britain’s tribal goddess is not British at all; it is ancient Phoenician.
The Kassites of Mesopotamia, who venerated the goddess Barat-Anna, were kin to a line descended from the biblical Esau. The book of Genesis explains that Esau had a number of wives, one being a princess of the old line called Bashemath, by whom he had two prominent grandsons: Nahath, Lord of Edom, and Shammah-si, also Lord of Edom. Despite their listing in the Bible (only to be sidestepped in favour of pursuing a junior course from Esau’s brother Jacob), the powerful Lords of Edom are still given an amount of temporary prominence, being cited as ’The kings that reigned in the land of Edom before there reigned any king over the children of Israel’ .
Not only did the family of Esau inherit Edom, but they became Kings of Assyria and Lords of the Babylonian Sea Land from around 1780 BC. Later successors of the line were the Hyksos Kings of Egypt: the shepherd-guardians who reigned in the Nile Delta simultaneously with the 17th pharaonic dynasty of Thebes. During that same era, from about 1750 BC, their cousin line of Kassites governed Greater Mesopotamia, bringing a return to law and order after some 200 years of turmoil since the departure of the Anunnaki overlords. Subsequently, from around 1600 BC, they ruled more specifically in Babylonia and Sumer for another 500 years.
What emerges from these coextensive tribal histories is that there were common Sumerian roots in Anunnaki times between the Kassites and the biblical family of Esau who, as Genesis explains, descended from the patriarchs of Ur. Their mutual interest in horse-drawn vehicles is also significant since it pulls the families back beyond Sumerian times to the Kurgan race of Scythia and the Russian steppe-lands who originated the concept.
In recent times there have been some astonishing discoveries in this regard – discoveries which prove that Sumerian was not the first written language as is commonly portrayed, and that the Sumerian culture (generally held to be the earliest cradle of civilization) had an older origin of its own. Indeed, the Ring Lord culture and the notion of earthly kingship did not begin in ancient Sumer; it began long before in the Balkans, specifically in Transylvania and the Carpathian regions.
Since these discoveries are especially relevant to the fairy lore of the druidic Sidhé, we shall consider them at a more appropriate later stage of our investigation. Meanwhile, in preparation for this, we should continue our journey with the Kassites. These people gained their name from the word Kassi, which meant ’Place of Wood’ – the place in question being a sacred royal mound dwelling, variantly called a Caddi. By virtue of this, the Kassites were designated Wood Lords.
In the 12th century, Melusine’s descendant, Robert de Vere, 3rd Earl of Oxford and legal pretender to the Earldom of Huntingdon, was appointed as King Richard I’s Steward of the forest lands of Fitzooth. As Lord of the Greenwood and titular Herne of the Wild Hunt, he was a popular people’s champion of the Sidhé heritage – as a result of which he was outlawed for taking up arms against King John. It was he who, subsequently styled Robin Fitzooth, became a prototype for the popular tales of Robin Hood.
Of all the monarchs who ever sat upon the Throne of England, the Tudor Queen, Elizabeth I, was by far the most in tune with ancient cultures and wood lore. She was even called the ’Fairie Queen’ and, before being formally crowned, she was installed by the people as their Queen of the Greenwood. This was an ancient ritual of theShining Ones – the elven race of the Albi gens. The ceremony was conducted in the mist of early dawn in the depths of Windsor Forest and, to facilitate the installation, the customary Robin Hood legacy of the House of Vere was brought into play.
At that time the Queen’s Lord Chamberlain was Edward de Vere of Loxley, 17th Earl of Oxford, and it was his office to invest Elizabeth by first deposing the Caille Daouine. This was the traditional King of the Forest (whose name had given rise to Scotland’s Pictish realm of Caledonia) – the mighty Stag of the Seven Tines, upon whose back Lord Vere rode into the ceremonial clearing.
Edward de Vere of Oxford was a friend and student of the Rosicrucian alchemist and Secret Service operative, John Dee, and he worked closely with the statesman and philosopher, Francis Bacon (later Viscount St Albans). Between them (along with others) they comprised the Royal Court Syndicate, which was responsible for providing much of the material for the works of their playwright colleague, William Shakespeare.
As mentioned in connection with Melusine, fountains, springs and water in general were always associated with the Ring Lord female line. This stems from the very earliest times of the Anunnaki, whose founding mother (as explained in ancient Mesopotamian literature) was Tiâmatthe sea-dragon. In later times these queens were commonly represented as mermaids (mere maids), and were often called Ladies of the Lake. This was a style granted to Mary Magdalene when she had settled in Provence from AD 44.
While the male descendants of her and Jesus became the noted Fisher Kings in Gaul, the female line retained its Dragon Queen status, in a quite separate dynasty, as the matriarchal Queens of Avallon in Burgundy. They were known as the House del Acqs (the House of the Waters) and among their number was the great 6th-century Queen Viviane, revered as the Lady of the Lake in Arthurian romance. This heritage was so important to the Celtic Church that, when King Kenneth MacAlpin united the Scots and Picts in 844, his extant installation document made special mention of his descent from the Queens of Avallon.
The true significance of King Arthur was his immediate joint descent in both the male and female lines of the Albi gens. His father was King Aedàn of Dalriada, the Pendragon of Britain in the year 559 – a descendant of the Wood Lord, Beli Mawr. His mother was Ygerna del Acqs, the daughter of Queen Viviane, whose grandson (by Ygerna’s sister, Viviane II) was the legendary Lancelot del Acqs. Ygerna (sometimes called Igraine in the Grail tradition) was the High Queen of the Celtic kingdoms and her daughter, Morgaine (by her first husband, Gwyr Llew of Carlisle), was High Priestess of the Sisters of Avallon.
There have, over the years, been any number of speculations concerning the historical Arthur, but these are mainly fronted by tourist establishments endeavouring to claim the Arthurian heritage for their particular parts of England or Wales. The fact is, however, that (in line with the traditional accounts) there was only ever one High King of Britain called Arthur. There was only ever one Arthur born as the son of a Pendragon. There was only ever one Arthur whose mother was Igraine of Avallon and whose grandmother was the recognized Lady of the Lake. There as only ever one Arthur with a son named Modred, and there was only ever one Arthur with a sister called Morgaine (or Morganna as some of the stories refer to her). In this regard, the old annals of Scotland and Ireland, along with the records of the Celtic Church, are unanimous in identifying Arthur mac Aedàn of Dalriada. He was invested as Sovereign Commander and High King in the year 575 by the druid, Merlin Emrys, and his primary seat was at Carlisle in the north of England, from where he controlled the military defence of the English-Scottish Border country.
Reverting, once more, to the Raths (or royal mound dwellings), we should perhaps consider the fact that, as mentioned, these Portals to the Netherworld were called Tepes – for this was the very style afforded to one of the most enigmatic of all Gothic figures – Count Dracula. Historically, and quite outside the Christian propagandist mythology which surrounds the vampire character of Bram Stoker’s famous novel, Dracula was Prince Vlad III of Wallachia, who is often referred to as Vlad Tepes.
Since the word ’Tepes’ relates to wooden poles, it is often thought that Vlad’s descriptive nickname relates to his individual method of executing enemies of the State by impaling them upon wooden stakes. Hence, Vlad Tepes is sometimes said to mean Vlad the Impaler. This, however, is completely untrue. He was called ’Tepes’ (as were many other druidic elders before him) because, within the ancient Ring Lord culture of the Sidhé, he was an appointed Creachaire Portal Guardian.
Vlad Tepes, a 15th-century Prince in Romania, founded the capital city of Bucharest. His popularized name, Dracula, means, ’Son of Dracul’, and Dracul (or Dragon) was a style by which his father was known within the Grail fraternity of the Ordo Draconis (The Imperial Court of the Dragon) from 1431. During this past century, ever since the 1897 novel, Dracula, was published, Vlad has become an archetype of the Church-promoted Gothic tradition. However, the establishment’s real fear of Dracula was not his harsh treatment of enemies, as is so often cited, nor that he was a blood-sucking vampire in the Stoker tradition. What they feared was his in-depth knowledge of alchemy and the fact that he was truly an operative Oupire – a venerated Overlord of the Rath – a Portal Guardian in the ancient Yulannu manner of the Ring Lords.
Those of you who have read Bloodline of the Holy Grail, or maybe even Genesis of the Grail Kings, will be familiar with the terracotta portrayal of the Sumerian goddess, Lilith (below image), from around 2000 BC. In this depiction (as in those of other Anunnaki hierarchy) Lilith is seen to be holding the Rod and Ring of Divinely Measured Justice. The Rod was actually an instrument of measure – and in some portrayals it is very clearly marked in calculable units (like a modern ruler). By Babylonian times, it was referred to as the Rule, and the one who held the Rule was the ’Ruler’ – which is from where our governmental term derives.
The Ring (as mentioned at the beginning of this talk) was a symbol of wholeness, unity and eternity. It represented a continuance of divine justice – a justice that was measured by the Rod (or Rule). Hence, the Ring was the ultimate insignia of the Anunnaki overlords – the enigmatic Oupires who were responsible for the establishment of municipal government and kingly practice – for they were the progenitors of civilization from about 4000 BC.
In view of this, it is of particular interest to note that Tolkien answered (when asked about his book’s Middle Earth environment) that he perceived its setting to relate to somewhere around 4000 BC.
“The cauldron has always been boiling”, he said, “We simply add new ingredients to the soup”.
In this respect, his popular tale, although enthralling, was not actually new in concept. From the earliest of European times, the Saxon god, Wotan (or Odin – the equivalent of the Sumerian Anu), was said to have ruled the world with eight rings – having one more, the ninth ring (the One Ring), to govern the others.
During the medieval days of the Church’s persecution of heretics and, indeed, through the Middle Ages and beyond, all manner of Grail-related subject matter fell prey to the wrath of the bishops and friars. Unsuspecting victims were accused of any number of apparently unsavoury practices, and any association with the Ring culture was proscribed. Indeed, when Joan of Arc was accused of witchcraft, one of the charges laid against her by the bishops was that she used magical rings for enchantment and curative purposes. As a result, she was burnt at the stake in 1431. But recently, in 1920, the Church reconsidered her case and she was pardoned and canonized!
As detailed in Bloodline of the Holy Grail, not only were proscriptions levelled against the Prophesies of Merlin – with a good deal of other literature confined to the supposedly ’lost’ coffers of the Dark Ages – but pictorial art also came under close scrutiny and many new rules were made. One of these was that the Virgin Mary must only be portrayed wearing blue and white (just as she is commonly depicted today). The reason for this was that other colours, especially the red of the cardinals, might have implied that she held some form of ecclesiastical office within a Church that afforded no clerical status to women.
What is not so commonly known is that the Church’s regulations also applied to music – in particular ancient music which could be traced to cultures other than that of Rome, Greece or Lydia. It is by virtue of these implemented regulations that so many of today’s reference books determine that, for the most part, music evolved either from Greece, or from various parts of the Roman Empire.
It is precisely the same with the English language, which is largely, but quite erroneously, said to derive from Greek or Latin. To cement this notion very firmly into our culture, we are taught from the classical literature of Homer and Virgil – but what is always forgotten is that both the Greek and Roman languages themselves evolved from other, far older, sources. Much of the language of Europe, including the English language, can be traced back into Phoenicia, Syria, Egypt, India and Mesopotamia – with many of the word stems being thousands of years old.
In the world of music, we have the very same scenario and, by virtue of discoveries made in the past few decades, there is no doubt that structured and sequenced music played a major role way back in the days of the Babylonian kingdoms and beyond. Silver pipes, bells and drums, along with beautifully ornamented harps and lyres, have all been unearthed in ancient Sumer from graves dating back five or six thousand years, and it is known that lutes were also used.
Buried along with kings and queens of the Dragon succession, these finely produced instruments were clearly ceremonial, and would appear to have been used in ancient Star Fire and Fire-stone rituals described in Genesis of the Grail Kings. The Fire-stone ritual (the ritual of the goddess Antu – or Barat An-na) was largely a levitation ceremony conducted with the monatomic, superconductive element of the Highward Fire-stone (the White Powder of Gold).
Even in modern times, music has been used to perform levitational feats – notably in Tibet, where prohibitively large stone blocks have been lifted and positioned high in the mountains by using anti-gravitational sound frequencies. The ritual involves 19 musicians and, behind them, 200 monks, radiating outwards in lines (in groups of five) at 5-degree intervals facing towards a mountain cave.
The musicians use 13 barrel-drums of variant sizes (weighing up to 150 kilograms apiece) – suspended from wooden frames and directed towards a bowl-shaped cavity in which the required boulder is placed, between the musicians and the cave. Also, there are six long trumpets positioned at intervals between the drummers. On command, the trumpets and drums begin, with the monks at the rear providing a baffle whilst chanting. The time-span before levitation of the stone occurs is four minutes and, in this manner, stones have been lifted some 400 meters to be lowered into their necessary mountain temple positions.
Having made an intensive study of the intricacies of this ancient procedure, Adrian Wagner has recreated a musical enactment in The Phoenix and the Fire-stone track of the Genesis of the Grail Kings album – strategically breaking the sequence with a Golden Mean partition and concluding immediately before the four-minute deadline. Locked within this are frequencies that are so low as to be inaudible to conscious awareness, but which resonate directly with the frequency of the pineal gland. This, as many of you will know, is the gland responsible for heightened states of awareness and perception.
Also included within the Genesis album are aspects of musical harmonics which were banned by the Vatican in the Middle Ages, subsequent to their use by the Knights Templars and Cistercian monks in the construction of their Magdalene-dedicated Notre Dame cathedrals, which are noted for their architectural defiance of gravitational theory. The Knights of this particular branch of the Templars (constituted by King Baldwin of Jerusalem in 1118) were called The Guardian Princes of the Royal Secret.
One of these musical sequences is the most famous of all – a Tritone dubbed by the Church as the ’Devil’s Interval’. This is a direct extraction from the discovered harmonic scales of ancient Mesopotamian deities, which include the Enki Scale, Enlil Scale, Anu Scale, Marduk Scale, Kingu Scale, Inanna Scale and others.
No composer has done so much to preserve the legacy of Ring lore as Adrian’s great-great-grandfather, Richard Wagner. His renowned 16-hour, 4-part Nibelungen Ring Cycle (The Rhinegold, The Valkyrie, Siegfried and Gotterdamerung – The Twilight of the Gods) was largely drawn from Burgundian folklore, and to some extent from the very old Norse mythology of the Volsunga Saga.
The Ring’s ultimately key character is the warrior Siegfried who, while under the spell of a potion, betrays the woman he loves – a goddess turned mortal called Brunhilde – who then masterminds his death. Subsequently, however, she realizes her error and throws herself upon Siegfried’s funeral pyre to be with him in eternity. The magical Ring that Siegfried gave to Brunhilde is retrieved from the ashes by the Rhinemaidens – the rightful water guardians of the gold. And, by virtue of this, along with Brunhilde’s self-sacrifice, a hitherto curse (placed upon the Ring by Alberic the Nibelung, Dwarf-lord of the Underworld) is lifted.
The Ring had originally been stolen from the Rhinemaidens by the Nibelung, who lost it to Brunhilde’s father, the sky-god Wotan. Then Siegfried had won it by killing a dragon. But, upon the final cleansing of the Ring by the Rhinemaidens, Wotan perishes, together with his dream kingdom of Valhalla. With the Ring now back in its rightful hands, the world is redeemed and the Cycle is complete.
And so, once again the traditional Ring lore is apparent – just as in Tolkien and the Grail stories, for the Ring is finally seen to destroy those who hold it without the right of affinity. The golden Ring itself (forged from the enchanted flat-stone of the Rhinegold) had the power to afford its master the lordship of all the world, but only at the cost of forsaking love and selling his soul to the Ring’s awesome power. In terms of the straightforward Messianic line of King David and Jesus, the most powerful of the Ring Lords was King Solomon who, in the traditional Judaic writings of the Talmud, was said to be the mightiest magician of his age. His great wisdom and considered judgment as a sorcerer-king were directly attributed to his ownership of an enchanted ring, and the legend of King Solomon’s Ring was clearly a major inspiration for Tolkien.
In the same manner as Solomon, Tolkien’s Ring Lord, Sauron, used his One Ring to command all the demons of the earth. Solomon used the demons to build a Temple of Jerusalem, whilst Sauron used them to build the Tower of Mordor. The rings were also similar (as is usual in the tradition) in that each had the power to corrupt and destroy its master. Solomon’s ring achieves his downfall through the agency of the demon Asmodaeus, whereas Sauron is, in effect, his own destructive demon.
Along with the rings, there are also story similarities concerning the possession of light-radiating jewels, with Solomon’s being the Schamir and the Elf-king Thingol’s being the Silmaril – each of which is said to be an heirloom of the respective King’s race.
By virtue of such Jewish writings, the Dominican wrath of the Spanish Inquisition (from about 1480) was largely directed against the Jews – especially those connected with Kabbalistic studies – and it was really as a direct result of this persecution that the witch-hunts began.
Prior to that, the Roman Inquisition had been more concerned with heterodox Christians: those heretics who were Christians of one sort or another (Arians, Nestorians, Nazarenes, or whatever), but were not members of the Roman Church and whose culture revolved, to some extent, around traditions of magic and alchemy that were outside Church control. But, here were the Jews putting forward their own versions of the old lore – particularly those in the Narbonne region of the Spanish Marches, where the House of David had once been given privileged rights of princely independence by Emperor Charlemagne. It was recognized, therefore, that the net should be cast over a wider arena, so as to take account of those of completely different persuasions. It was no longer a matter of the Church simply endeavouring to clean up the Christian house. What of the Jews? What of the Muslims? What of the pagans in general?
And so, from the late 15th century, the Inquisition began a thorough process of ’ethnic cleansing’. No one who was other than a full-blooded and obvious Catholic was safe. But, there had to be some new form of classification to pull all the prey into the ever expanding net. The Grand Inquisitor at the time was the brutal Tomâs de Torquemada, senior confessor to Ferdinand II and Queen Isabella of Spain. Under his direction the answer was found and, very soon, the friars had set their sights upon what it called ’the most diabolical heathens who ever conspired to overthrow the Roman Church’.
In 1484, two Dominicans, Heinrich Kramer and James Sprenger, published a book called The Hammer of Witches. This evil but imaginative work gave full details of what was perceived to be the hideous new threat posed by all the practitioners of satanic magic. The book was so persuasive that, two years later, Pope Innocent VIII issued an official Bull to authorize the suppression of this blasphemous sect. Up to that point, the cult known as ’witchcraft’ (to the extent that it existed at all) had not really constituted a threat to anyone. It rested mainly in the continuation of pagan ritual and fertility rites by the peasant classes.
In real terms, it was little more than the vestige of a primeval belief in the divine power of natural forces, focused above all on Pan, the mischievous Arcadian god of the shepherds. Pan was traditionally portrayed with the legs, ears and horns of a goat, but the creative Dominicans had other ideas about the pipe-playing Horned One, and they blackened his image so that he was seen to correspond to the very Devil himself. However, since the Inquisitors were all men, it was determined that witchcraft must be a form of depravity linked to the insatiable wantonness of women!
The problem was that nobody really knew who these presumed witches were – and so a series of ludicrously tragic trials and tests was devised to root them out. In the midst of all of this, the harsh Puritan sect became politically allied to the Roman strategy, implementing their own witch-hunts in England and, later, in America. Over a period of some 250 years, more than a million innocent men, women and children were murdered by the delegated authority of the witch-finders.
It was against the backdrop of this religious fanaticism and persecution that the Renaissance movement was born – an era of rebirth and resurrection facilitated by an environment of democratic free-thinking. This era (with its height in the early 1500s) was the age when Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael and Michelangelo developed the harmony of classical art to its highest form. And it was the age in which the excitement of pagan-orientated scholarship re-emerged in a burst of colour to cross new frontiers of science, architecture and design.
During the course of this, in 1614 and 15, two tracts known as the Rosicrucian Manifestos emerged from Germany. These were immediately followed by an associated romance called The Chemical Wedding, written by the Lutheran pastor Johann Valentin Andreae. The publications announced a new age of enlightenment and Hermetic liberation in which certain universal secrets would be unlocked and made known.
In view of the advent of Britain’s scientific Royal Society and the inspired work of Isaac Newton, Robert Boyle, Robert Hooke, Edmund Halley, Christopher Wren and others a few decades later, the prophecies were correct enough but, at the time, they were veiled in allegory and appeared to convey an even more pertinent message. The writings centered upon the travels and learning of a mysterious character named Christian Rosenkreutz – a Brother of the Rosy Cross. His name was plainly designed to have Rosicrucian significance, and he was depicted wearing the apparel of the Knights Templars.
The action of The Chemical Wedding takes place in the magical Castle of the Bride and Bridegroom – a palace filled with lion effigies, where the courtiers are students of Plato. In a setting worthy of any Grail romance, the Virgin Lamplighter arranges for all present to be weighed on the scales, while a clock tells the motions of the heavens and the Golden Fleece is presented to the guests. Music from strings and trumpets is played throughout, and all is cloaked in an atmosphere of chivalry, while knights in Holy Orders preside.
Beneath the castle stands a mysterious sepulchre bearing strange inscriptions, and outside in the harbour lie twelve ships of the Golden Stone flying their individual flags of the Zodiac. Amid this curious reception, a fantasy play is conducted to tell the compelling story of an unnamed princess who, cast ashore in a wooden chest, is discovered by a prince, whom she marries, thereby causing a usurped royal heritage to be restored.
This is another Lost Bride fairy story of the type we have already seen. But, when combined with the two earlier publications, The Chemical Wedding’s Grail significance was blatantly obvious, and the Church wasted no time in bringing the full weight of its condemnation against the Rosicrucian movement.
Having considered the historical fairies, pixies and elves, we can now take a look at some others of the so-called Shining Ones: the sprites, goblins and gnomes.
The definition ’sprite’ means no more nor less than a ’spirit person’ – one of the transcendental realm of the Sidhé. The original Sprites were the ancient Scythian ghost warriors, who painted their bodies grey-blue to look like corpses when they entered the battlefield.
In Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the character, Puck, is described as a ’sprite’ and, in traditional English wood lore, Puck is identified with a certain Robin Goodfellow, who was said to be a ’goblin’. His father was Herne the Hunter. Hence, Oberon and Herne are one and the same. The name, Oberon (a variant of Albrey the Elf-king, as we have seen) is itself a derivative of the Scythian Oupire (meaning ’over’) and Ron (meaning ’reign’). Oberon, therefore, means ’Over Reign’ – which is the same as High King or Pendragon.
The description of ’goblin’ stems immediately from the Germanic word, ’kobelin’ – and the ’kobelins’ were said to be mine-workers or those who worked underground. In the context of the Ring culture, goblins were, in essence, attendants of the Oupire Portal Guardians of the Rath – the mound dwellings of the Tepes gateways to the ancestral Netherworld – and they were just as human as the Oupires themselves.
Gnomes, like goblins, were said to be the guardians of the underground treasures – which is why the word is today associated with banking, as in the Gnomes of Zurich. The word root is in the Greek equivalent of gno, from which we get gnosis and gnoble (noble). The gnomes were, therefore, once again, of the noble race and were referred to as the Wise Ones. Their job was indeed one of guardianship: they were guardians of the gnosis (the knowledge) and of the sacred bloodline of the Albi gens. It is by way of the noble (or gnomic) distinction that the fairy race in general was referred to as the ’gentry’ – particularly the druidic caste of the Pict-sidhé (the pixies) who were the ultimate custodians of law and culture. Their female counterparts were the Behn-sidhé (the Banshee), which, in old Irish, simply means ’wise women’.
In life, when presented with a seemingly unsurmountable problem, one can either submit to the stress and pressure that it causes or, alternatively, one can mentally diminish the problem. That does not mean that it goes away, but it can appear less harassing and more controllable. Well, that was precisely what the Church did with the Dragon succession: the Ring Lords of the Albi gens – the sacred Bloodline of the Holy Grail.
By way of redefining all the original names: fairies, elves, pixies, gnomes, goblins, sprites or whatever, they diminished the problem by miniaturizing the nominal significance. In so doing, the transcendental race of the Sidhé were portrayed as minute little figures and were moved into the realm of mythology. The fraudulent Donation of Constantine was then brought into play and, henceforth, only the Church could determine who was and was not a king!
If this strategy did not work sufficiently on its own, as was indeed the case in the Renaissance (a period of a more general awareness and enlightenment), then Par t-2 of the plan was brought into operation. This was more specifically targeted at the key members of the Messianic strain – the ultimate Dragon succession of the Albi gens: the dynastic kings and queens of the Sangréal and their senior Oupires. These people were real, and everyone knew that – so they could not be confined to the superficial realm of fantasy. They could, however, be portrayed as if (being of the Dragon blood) they were of a weird, half-human strain, beyond the Christian pale. At best, they were perhaps mermaids and, at worst, they were vampires but, either way, they were the evil shapeshifting emissaries of Satan! The fact that anyone believed such nonsense is difficult to comprehend in these more level-headed times. However, the myth is still operative and, to some extent, it is still working with a vengeance. It is even working on some whose apparent mission in life is to expose such propagandist dogma, but who (by way if its own cleverly contrived strategy) have actually fallen prey to it. In this regard, at this very moment, there are some well-known, supposedly intelligent folk, who should know better, claiming that the British Royal Family, along with myself and others, are really hideous reptiles from another planet!
One of the most surprising things about the Scythian Ring Lords is that their preserved remains from thousands of years ago (discovered even as far north as Siberia) show their bodies substantially tattooed with ring-tailed lemurs. Lemurs, we are led to believe, are native to (and pretty much restricted to) Madagascar and the Comoros Islands off Mozambique – but here they are, where we are told they never were, in Northern Europe and the Black Sea regions!
It has long been known that there was once a continent, inhabited by a great king-tribe, which was noted for its lemurs. Hence, it has been dubbed ’Lemuria’ – setting a good many enthusiasts searching for its sunken whereabouts beneath the Atlantic, Pacific or Indian Oceans, as if it were the Lost City of Atlantis. Maybe such a concealed territory does exist. However, the fact is that (by whatever name it was once known) the mightiest Lemurian land tract was never lost. It was the great mainland continent which still exists today – stretching across eastern Europe through the one-time USSR.
This was the original realm of the great Ring Lords – tracing back to about 40,000 BC – the homeland of the Oupires of the Pict-sidhé. It was the land of the mighty Warlords of the Dragon before they migrated and battled their way southwards in the ever cooling climate of the last Ice Age. Undoubtedly, the environment was once very warm there, as is proved by the fact that the lemurs travelled about as far south as they could possibly go by land before Madagascar and the Comoros broke away from the southern African mainland.
What did these early God-kings look like? Well, they are now thoroughly identifiable from their preserved remains, which have been excavated at various sites from as far afield as Transylvania and Tibet. With their light-brown to red hair and pale eyes, the leather-clad men stood at least 6ft 6ins and upwards, while even the women were over 6ft tall. Undoubtedly, these forebears of the Gaelic and Celtic High-kings were among the most awesome warriors of all history.
Of particular interest is the fact that the Anunnaki gods were as much a part of the Sidhé culture as they were of the Mesopotamian tradition. It was not for no reason that the settlement of Anu was hundreds of miles north of Sumer on the Caspian Sea. It was not for no reason that the ancient centre of Scythopolis (Sidhé-opolis), which the Syrians called Beth-Shean (the House of Power), was 800 miles away in Galilee.
Indeed, It is now suspected that the Ubaid culture of southern Mesopotamia – the culture which introduced municipal structure from about 5000 BC – was actually the ’Uper-ad’ culture: that of the Scythian Overlords – the Upers (or Oupires). It is also reckoned that the subsequent culture of the region, phonetically called ’Sumerian’ (pronounced Shumerian), was actually Sidhé-murian (Shee-murian). In fact, the case for this is now considerable, since the early Ring Lords of Scythia (the Tuatha Dé Danann king-tribe) were actually called the Sumaire. And in the language of old Ireland – to where many of the caste migrated – the word sumaire meant ’dragon’.
So, why have we not learned about these people in our histories? The answer is straightforward. They were, in practice, the real Elves and Fairies of our heritage, but their story was quashed from the earliest days of Roman suppression and subjugation – as the diminution of their figures caused a parallel diminution of their history.
The fact is, however, that for all we have been told about our cultural identity being from the classical scholarship of Greece, or from the imperial majesty of Rome, these things are entirely untrue. Such establishments appeared very late in the day.
The true sovereign heritage of our culture – the culture from which derived all the so-called myth and legend which sits so comfortably within our race memory (no matter what the Church and academics might say in their attempts to sway us) – comes from one place alone. It comes from a place and time that might just as well be called Middle Earth as by any other name. It comes from the long distant Realm of the Ring Lords.
