All Saints' Day.


A saint is wholly good.

A saint returns good for evil.

A saint forgives others, even those who are evil.

A saint is patient.

A saint does not anger easily.

A saint endures suffering without complaint.

A saint returns love for hatred.

A saint loves the unlovable.

A saint loves his enemies.


We should all aspire to become saints.

Making the Hole Bigger.


The world is in darkness.

But God has made a hole in the serpent of cloud.

This involves seeing the darkness itself - the lies and malice that has been spread by rock bands and superstars for fifty years and more.

The Truth is that since the 1960s rock bands have been selling Satanism to an unsuspecting audience, poisoning them and sabotaging their spiritual quest.

It is no coincidence that hardly any trace of 1960s idealism remains.
Peace and love is long dead and all we have now is money and sex.

But, far from being accidental or historical, this has been done deliberately.

It is called death.
And it is caused by sex and drugs and rock and roll.

They turn musclemen into monsters and sexual predators.

They turn gays and hippies into promiscuous drug addicts.

They turn women into man-hating hypocrites and shopping addicts.

It's little wonder that we are all divorced.

And they pass it off as a joke.

Hell forever - very funny.

Pure evil - hilarious.

The devil = the joker.

(He is a ringmaster and a criminal, a liar and a cheat, a torturer and a villain.)

But there is no devil in reality, only God's Love.

Once we realize that we are being deceived and cursed we can begin to find our way out of the shroud of darkness which covers the world.

This means making the hole bigger by spreading the news about Satanism in the world and the benevolent nature of God's Love.

All of this has created a massive surplus of good karma.

So do not be afraid.

God is waiting for you.

Call on God.

And He will deliver you.

The Prophecy.


When it comes to the Age of Aquarius there is no prophecy other than the attributes of Aquarius itself.

There is no promised Messiah or individual as was seen with Jesus, the Piscean Messiah.  His story was prophesied in the Hebrew scriptures.

But Aquarius is different.
We should not project our expectation that the fate of Jesus will repeat itself.
Nor should we look to the Book of Revelation which prophesied the fall of Rome and the end of the ancient world and the establishment of Christendom.

What happens now may be quite different.

There are no prophecies about the Age of Aquarius other than the astrological attributes of Aquarius itself.

And what are these attributes?

Aquarius governs:  gay and lesbian people, equality, humanitarianism, altruism, liberalism, liberty, fraternity, universal brotherhood, humanism, charity, activism, sympathy, freedom, telepathy, clairvoyance and clairaudience, technology, electricity, the internet, and democracy.....

It also governs groups.
So the Aquarian messiah may not be an individual at all, it may be a group of souls, or even an idea.

Aquarius* is also ruled by Saturn (ancient ruler) so there may be aspects that relate to the social structure of our societies worldwide.

The left and right political aspects of parliament are also indicated.

This is all we have to go on.

But I think we can see what it is not.
It is not the power of plutocracy - rule of the rich - or inequality in the form of economic or social elites.  It is not dark or sinister.
It is not conventional or orthodox or conservative.

It is individual.
And it has a soft heart from which flows love that is unconditional to all humanity, all wildlife, and to the earth itself.

*The modern ruler of Aquairius is Uranus (described above).

The Blame.


Do you blame gays for AIDS?

Do you blame hippies for the recession?

Do you blame the Church for social prudery?

Do you blame God for human suffering?


We all play the blame game.


But Jesus taught forgiveness:

Forgiveness breaks the cycle of hatred.

Forgiveness wipes out the debt.

Forgiveness sets us free.

Flower Child.


We are used to seeing saints depicted with halos around their heads.

But a saint should be depicted with a delicate pink flower blossoming in  his heart.

This represents the gentle love and kindness that a saint shows towards others.

It is beautiful and friendly.
Not in any way threatening.

More in keeping with a flower child than a moral doyen.

Light.


Once we have escaped the black magic of the shadows we can move towards the light.

God is the white light, the source of all goodness and love.

We can contact Him through study, prayer, and contemplation.....

God is reliable.
He is trustworthy and helpful.

The things of God are:
light, white, flowers, doves, beauty, tears, compassion, charity, forgiveness, wisdom, breath, lambs, sheep, hearts, heaven.....

Meditate on these things and you will draw closer to God.

Pray to God and He will answer you.

Shadows.


From the shadows evil manipulates everything - attacking the holy, distracting the good, feeding evil, creating darkness, opposing the light.....

They whitewash evil and vilify good.

Darkness hides them.

They are famous people - rock stars and actors, writers and directors, sports men and women.....

The things to look out for are:
flames, darkness, black, evil, violence, death, the sign of the devil, tongues, horns, profanity, blasphemy, negations, emptiness, 666, the beast, 13, hell.....

This is Satanic magic and it works on the unconscious.

So unplug your earphones and switch off the T.V..

And together we will save the world.

The Social Environment.


Some of it is hostility in the environment.

Some of it is fear.

Some of it is projected guilt.

Some of it is prejudice and stereotyping.

Some of it is behavioral clashes (transgression).

Some of it is generational conflict.

Some of it is hidden evil.


These are the negative influences in our social environment.


But there is also:

Benevolence.

Help.

Charity.

Blessings.

And Love.

Truth.


Contrary to popular belief I do not think that the post-crucifixion interpretations of Peter and Paul represent Truth with a capital T.

The Truth resides in the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth.
The teachings of open-hearted love, forgiveness, and mercy; of goodness, and justice.....

Jesus was crucified and the light went out of the world.

We were left with a lesser understanding.

Although the disciples may have experienced the Holy Spirit after Jesus' resurrection this was never enough to attain the Truths of the original vision - the revelations given to Jesus - the anointed, the chosen one.

So I do not follow the theologies that derive from Peter and Paul.

I follow the teachings of their master Jesus of Nazareth.

Concessions.


If we enthrone the heart above all other things we will automatically make concessions according to understanding.

This means not rigidly applying the rules.

To make rules and enforce them with rewards and punishments is Legalism.

And it was this Legalism that Jesus criticized in the Pharisees and Sadducees.

But what is our law if we don't apply the rules?

Our law is Love.

And Love is its own reward.

Aquarius.


The foam on the waves of the sea

is said to have come

from the severed genitals of the Sky God Uranus,

who was castrated by his son Saturn.

It gave birth to Aphrodite (Venus)

the goddess of beauty and love.


In the Age of Aquarius

this myth will be reversed.

Venus and Saturn

will combine

to make Uranus

whole and fertile once again.

Gross Hypocrisy.


Despite the decline of religious based morality the stigma associated with sexual indiscretion is as bad as it ever was.

This is because of feminism.

Women use the accusation of sexual indiscretion as a weapon against men.

This can be clearly seen in the lives of several leading sportsmen who have had affairs or have had sex with young women.

The cry is how unfair it is to his wife or the young women involved.

Feminists are also against pornography because it involves the sexual exploitation of women and therefore represents men's power over women.

And all this at the same time as women's use of male strippers and toy boys.

It is gross hypocrisy and should be recognized as such.

Getting Your Hands Dirty.


We cannot just live in an ivory tower feeling pure and clean and judging others.

We have to get our hands dirty.

We cannot be afraid of immorality or corruption.

We have to meet people where they live.

And not judge them for what we think are their sins.

But to love them.

And to show them mercy and compassion.

To be agents of God's infinite forgiveness.

We must never forget that we are dealing with human beings no matter how low we might think they have sunk.

And it is not for us to clean them up or to impose our moral assumptions.

But to show them love and compassion for their suffering.

To bless them.

And to pray to God for their ultimate benefit.

AIDS.


AIDS has made the fear of sexual immorality, particularly in relation to homosexual acts, ten times worse than it was.

The Church, and society in general, are so afraid that God has punished homosexuality that they have become moral hypocrites and violent opponents.

But this is just the modern equivalent of stoning.

Jesus refused to condemn the woman caught in adultery.
He said, "'Let anyone among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.'"  John 8:7b (NRSV)

So it is time we realized what we are doing.

And refuse to punish homosexual acts.

Manipulation.


The evil forces in our world will use fear in the Churches to attack any challenges to their power.

If, for example, you might claim that homosexuals go to heaven, they will use the moral condemnation in the Churches to punish you and then tell you God will send you to hell.

This is a tactic which intensifies the fear in the Churches and moves us farther away from a solution.

The actual problem is fear of God.

The scriptures say to love God and love your neighbor.

So overcome your fear and love God with all your heart.

Moralizing.


When it comes to sex and homosexuality the oldest generations still moralize out of fear.

They still have a strong image of God as a moral arbiter.

And their fear makes them violent.
They punish sex out of fear.

Fear of hell and damnation.

A fear that was drummed into them as children.

This is not God's doing.
But it happens in the Church.

This is the source of the violence experienced by Jesus in the temple.

Jesus told the parable of the wicked tenants who beat and killed God's messengers.  This was their fear acting.
They were so afraid of God and damnation that they crucified Jesus in order to maintain their position of privilege and their righteousness before God.
Because if they lost their position they thought that they would lose their blessing, their grace under God.

Their fear made them test Jesus.
And eventually their fear made them kill Jesus.

So, rather than attacking them or threatening them - which will trigger their fears - we should be comforting them and helping them to see that if you engage in sex or homosexual activity you will not lose God's blessing.

This also applies to their good works.

Their fear makes them defend their good works even when they have been shown to be harmful to others.

This is fear of losing God's blessing which would mean hell forever.

So, despite what they might say, unconsciously they are ruled by their fears.

Pray for them to overcome their fears and open their hearts.

Karma.


The hippies and the generations that follow have been cursed, sabotaged, and led astray by their rock stars, celebrities, and sporting heroes.

Their influence has resulted in untold suffering in the form of drug addiction, divorce, depression, guilt, and suicide.

The suffering that we have experienced far outweighs any evil we may have done.

This creates a huge karmic surplus which is enough to save even the most depraved and wicked souls.

It is enough in fact to save even those who caused the suffering itself.

These people turned against God and Jesus because their priests and ministers told them (incorrectly) that God was a severe moral arbiter and judge, especially in matters of sex, and homosexuality in particular.

So they went to the opposition - the devil - believing that he would grant them sex, fame, and fortune in return for their souls and the dirty deeds which they believe to be his work in the world.

But there is no devil in reality, only God's Love.

So far from getting us into hell as they assumed they have guaranteed our entry into heaven.

And there is such a gigantic surplus of good karma that they can even enter heaven themselves.

God forgives our debts and transgressions.

He does not punish us for our sins.

So share your good karma with others.

And help create heaven on earth.

The News.


When I was growing up in the 1960s journalism was held in some esteem by the public as an honorable profession.

Now it is in the gutter.

Thanks to an ex-patriot Australian the world's media is a nightmare of cheap sex, propaganda, and corruption.

Add to this the covert Satanic influences in music, movies, and literature, plus the brutal philosophy in sports, and you have a recipe for disaster.

And a disaster it is.

No one can challenge the plutocrats who rule our world.

Reactionary violence explodes around the globe.

At home we are poisoned and controlled.

Ideals are ridiculed.

We are constantly distracted.

And nothing ever changes.

"Why?  Why?  Why?" I hear you ask.
As if to mimic the very news that controls us.

Because we are deceived.

Evil diverts and distracts us.
It corrupts and controls us.
It tempts and betrays us.

And still we watch and listen to it.

Turn it off.

Throw it away.

It is worthless garbage that infects and destroys us.

Turn to God in study and prayer.

And He will deliver you from evil.

O.K.?


So who made devil worship O.K.?

Why do girls and boys wear devil horns and think it's cool?

Why do they make the sign of the devil?

It's associated with extreme pleasure-seeking and having a good time.

This seems O.K.
But devil worship?

Why would they think that is O.K.?

They have been fooled and brainwashed to such an extent that they don't really know what they're doing.

They think its joke.

But its not.

It's not an alternative religion either.

The covert Satanism in rock music and entertainment does untold damage.

It poisons you and leads you astray.

It has even spread to literature and sports, movies and T.V..

Why is everything going up in flames?

You have been cursed and sabotaged.
In the hope that you will go to hell.

But there is no hell in reality.

God does not punish us.

But the damage remains.

We suffer.

So do not say that the devil is O.K..

What the devil stands for is not O.K..

It is darkness and evil and suffering.

And it should be avoided at all costs.

The Water Carrier.

Everyone is looking for the Water Carrier.

But no one seems to know what or who it is.

Jesus quoted the scriptures, "'"Out of the believer's heart shall flow rivers of living water."'"  John 7:38b (NRSV)

What is this living water?

Love.
Unconditional Love.

Our heart is the jar (Egyptian hieroglyph) and our love is the water.

So we are Water Carriers if we open our hearts and love without fear.

Others.


Many religious leaders emphasize serving others as an important principle of their respective religions.

While it is true that thinking of others is an integral part of spiritual development it can seem onerous if we embrace this practice as a moral obligation.

A better way to approach this is through love.

Love of others automatically brings unselfishness and circumvents any bitterness or resentment that can accrue when we feel we are obliged to serve others.

So, rather than embracing unselfishness as a mental principle, we can open our hearts and experience the joy of Love.

Cursed.


The diabolical influences which come from our popular culture - the backwards curses of Satanic magic - tempt and betray us daily.

The evil machinations of those who worship He Who Deceives the Whole World lead us to the very gates of hell.

But there is no devil in reality.
No hell to go to.

God is the only supernatural being.
And He does not punish us.
So there can be no hell.

But the damage remains.
The effects of drugs, divorce, hatred, and suicide.....

We are poisoned and cursed.

And we don't even know it.

Unplug your earphones.
Turn off your videos.

And begin to live at last.

Subtle.

"Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made."  Genesis 3:1a (KJB)*

We are subject to subtle influences working through the collective unconscious and in the spirit and psychic realms.

These evil influences affect the way we think, feel, and act.

To be unaware of them is to be controlled by them.

They make you follow, buy, and watch.

They make you bad.

They make you sin and transgress.

They make you fxxk.

They make you sado-masochistic.

They make you suffer

They distract you and poison you.

Pray to God to deliver you.

Quality of Life.


Our world is ruled by corporate plutocrats whose inhuman philosophy oppresses everyone.

God is about quality of life.
The life that comes from the heart.

So we do not seek to depose or destroy our corporate masters but to touch their hearts.  And by touching their hearts to change their philosophy.
To move them from the inhuman to the human.

For these men and women are driven by fear.
Fear of poverty, fear of loss, fear of failure, fear of justice.....

If they had a seed of faith they could change from profit to providing, from domination to service.....

But they say, "God has forsaken the earth."
And everyone suffers.

Pray that they open their hearts to their workers and employees and treat the more like sons and daughters.

Only then will the world be saved.

The Salvation of the World.


What is it that drives the money-making machines of the world?

Contrary to popular belief I believe that it is fear.

Fear of failure, which is fear of poverty.

They have no faith that God will provide.

They are driven like demons and sacrifice any humanity they may have had in the process.

They make money but lose their souls.

So any approach which triggers their fears will make matters worse.
They will resort to violence and coercion.

But how can we address such entrenched fears, fears that have petrified into the conventions of business and a culture of greed.

The only real answer is faith.

Pray for them to overcome their fears and open their hearts.

Then salvation will truly come to the world.

Omnipotent.


In a recent article a Progressive Christian preacher asked:

What if God is not omnipotent?

Whether God is omnipotent or not He will not force anyone to do His will.
Participation is voluntary.

"The word of our Lord came to Zechariah, saying: Thus says the Lord of hosts: Render true judgements, show kindness and mercy to one another; do not oppress the widow, the orphan, the alien, or the poor; and do not devise evil in your hearts against one another.  But they refused to listen, and turned a stubborn shoulder, and stopped their ears in order not to hear.  They made their hearts adamant in order not to hear the law and the words that the Lord of hosts had sent by his spirit through the former prophets."  Zechariah 7:8-12a (NRSV)

So if God prompts us to do something but we don't want to do it there is nothing He can do.

So much of what is taught in church goes in one ear and out the other and, even if we proclaim something with our lips, if we will not listen there is nothing God can do.

God does not punish us.

"'And this is the judgement, that the light has come into the world, and people loved darkness rather than the light because their deeds were evil.'"  John 3:19 (NRSV)

Side-Effects.


Religion as we know it - exoteric religion - is a collection of principles which accrue upon spiritual development.

But these principles, which can be adopted mentally, are not the heart of spirituality.  The heart of spirituality is unconditional love.

Love alone leads us to union with God.

The rest: goodness, compassion, forgiveness, mercy, morality, honesty, truthfulness, moderation, charity generosity.....are all side-effects.

It is when side-effects are adopted as absolutes that religion hardens into bigotry and prejudice, driven by fear.
Morality is not an absolute.
Morality is a side-effect.

St. Paul said, "but if I have no love, I am nothing."  Corinthians 13:2d (GNB)

"There is no fear in love; perfect love drives out all fear."  1 John 4:18a (GNB)

Tears For Willy Loman.


The inhuman brutality of our corporate culture,
a culture which reduces human beings to work units
and makes workers expendable in the pursuit of greater and greater profits,
a culture which has created the greatest disparity between rich and poor in human history is tearing our world apart.

But no one can do anything because all are controlled by the media which the corporate plutocrats own and use to further their interests.

Nothing will happen until workers are so stressed and disturbed that they begin to die.

And even then will there be tears for Willy Loman?

Priests.


Jesus was right when he said about you, "'Truly I tell you, the tax-collectors and the prostitutes are going into the kingdom of God ahead of you.'"  Matthew 21:31b (NRSV)

The tax-collectors and the prostitutes were the most despised members of the Jewish community.

And the same is true today: gays and porn stars will enter the kingdom of God before the religious authorities because the gays and porn stars will listen to God's message of unconditional love and forgiveness and the religious authorities will not.

They still cling out of fear to the theology of legalism - rules and regulations enforced by rewards and punishments, heaven and hell - which they try to force onto everyone else.

It is my prayer that they overcome their fears and terrors and enter into the sanctuary of love which is the giving of a loving heart.

Consensus.


Among Progressive Christians there is general consensus on many issues:

1.  The Bible is a collection of human records of men's and women's experiences of God.  It is not the literal word of God and much of it is poetry and metaphor.

2.  The story of Adam and Eve is a myth which was created to answer questions about human existence.

3.  The angry God of the Old Testament is a primitive conception of God which projects attributes of worldly authority figures onto God.

4.  The Virgin Birth is a myth which was invented to emphasize the importance of Jesus.  Many ancient figures had miraculous birth stories.

5.  Jesus was a human being.
He was not God incarnate.

6.  Many of the miracle stories are metaphorical tales created to show the divinity of Jesus.

7.  Jesus teachings about love and forgiveness are the core of his message.

8.  The Resurrection was a spiritual resurrection not a physical resuscitation.

9.  Jesus is not returning to judge humanity.
We are not in the End Times.

10.  God does not punish us.
Therefore there can be no hell.

11.  God does not reject gay people.
He accepts us as we are.

Restored.


"Was not your sister Sodom a byword in your mouth in the day of your pride"  Ezekiel 16:56 (NRSV)

"I will restore their fortunes, the fortunes of Sodom and her daughters and the fortunes of Samaria and her daughters, and I will restore your fortunes along with theirs"  Ezekiel 16:53 (NRSV)

God rebukes Israel for her contempt of Sodom - her scorn of homosexuality.
And He vows to restore their fortunes.

What's more He vows to restore Sodom before Israel!

This is perhaps closer to our modern attitude towards homosexuality than the much quoted line in Leviticus.

Israel is rebuked for her superiority, her prejudice, and her scapegoating of a social minority.

Modern Christians would do well to read this passage in the Bible.....

God defends homosexuals and restores their fortunes.

Body, Mind, and Spirit.


One of the reasons that modern Satanism has been so successful is because it guarantees sexual gratification.

The Church, on the other hand, virtually denies sexual gratification.

The Church bases this teaching on the writings of St. Paul.

St. Paul was originally a member of an extremely strict sect of Pharisees who denied sex altogether (he was not married).

He wrote, "Who will rescue me from this body of death?"  Romans 7:24b (NRSV) and, "To set the mind on the flesh is death, but ot set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace."  Romans 8:6 (NRSV)

He also wrote, "so that through death he might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil."  Hebrews 2:14b (NRSV)

So it is clear that these beliefs are based on the writings of St. Paul.

You will not find these claims in Jesus' teachings.

Jesus made no mention of any conflict between Spirit and flesh.

In fact he was known for eating with prostitutes and sinners.

Speaking of the Pharisees he said, "'Truly I tell you, the tax-collectors and the prostitutes are going into the kingdom of God ahead of you.'" Matthew 21:31b (NRSV)

So we are justified in challenging this doctrine which gives so much power to the devil.

Better to integrate body, mind, and spirit into a blessed whole - a sacred trinity of Life, Light, and Love.

The Closet.


The psychology of the closet is extremely complex.

The gay man in the closet, often a member of the clergy, will hide his true identity. He may even be unaware of his sexuality altogether.

So he will not do what he says.

He may espouse homophobic opinions or theological positions while at the same time entertaining homoerotic fantasies.

Needless to say this is extremely difficult to deal with.
It may lead to abusive or even criminal behavior.

This is because his erotic nature is so strong that he cannot control it and at the same time he is racked with guilt and fear because he believes it is evil.

Even if we can convince him that there is nothing wrong with his desires he may still be afraid of losing his job.

He will not come out.

Jesus said,  "'For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will save it.'"  Luke 9: 24 (NRSV)

Pro-Bodybuilders.


Incredible as it may seem professional bodybuilders and supermodels are involved in modern Satanism.

The rock stars in the elite have convinced them that Satan can give them what they want - fame and fortune and the perfection of their art.

Because they believe that the body is governed by death, which is in the power of the devil, they believe that the devil can help them develop their bodies.

In this regard they resemble sports men and women who use devil magic in their sports.

This can be seen in videos - they wear their caps backwards, they use Satanic rock music, they use images of death and hell.....

So do not be fooled by slick marketing and glamorous campaigns these people are in the grip of evil and desire your death and damnation.
