Why Yoga is Not for Christians Part 1

 

Foreword

The commencement of this document came from the persistent questioning from my 8 year old daughter about two questions.

Two questions I dearly wish to answer for her.

This is an answer to her second but least important question on what is wrong with doing yoga.

An answer that continued to expand like an unfolding DNA sequence or a compressed file decompressing. The scope, duration and intensity continued to increase.

With uttermost certainty I have not fully fleshed out the whole subject matter on this. You could go into greater and greater depth by picking just one word, quote, subject, technique, individual and on and on.

I hope to at least have covered what is necessary as Christians to comprehend this matter and to be cautious in knowing the “deep things of Satan” whilst still being fully appraised of his devices.

The other question of my daughter, of course more pertinent being “How do I know Jesus is real?”

One that has factual answers but equally requires a revelation from God Himself to have spiritual eyes and ears opened.

I can address the first with teaching and instruction but the second requires prayer and a diligent searching on her part of which I can only encourage, and in the end depends upon the calling of God Himself.

So may this take you places that you have not understood before. May it expose how the culture is indoctrinating us and our children into gradually accepting the “new religion” which is really the oldest religion of rebellious mankind.

Indoctrinating us through our eyes, through our ears, in our daily thoughts through our language, the words we now use, the meanings we attribute to them, and I’m speaking about the pulpits let alone the media, the thought police has become ourselves.

This is frightfully in line with what was written in 1956 by Edward Hunter in his book “Brainwashing: The Story of the men who defied it”.

This book delved into the Strategies used in Soviet brainwashing and the experiences of prisoners in Communist Countries in how to survive these Strategies.

“Even when he stands by himself, the truly indoctrinated communist must be part of the collective. He must be incapable of hearing opposing ideas and facts, no matter how convincing or how forcibly they bombard his senses. A trustworthy communist must react in an automatic manner without any force being applied.” Edward Hunter, Brainwashing: The story of the men who defied it (Pyramid Books, 1956), 201.

If you find yourself defensive about this topic and find your mind shutting down to retain your pet ideas and beliefs remember the above quote, and remember

If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” John 8:36

The word for free means you are not a slave. Do not be a slave also then in your mind.

The word for indeed means of a truth.

You are not a slave any longer to believe a lie. Come to the apprehension and the liberty found in Christ know the truth and the truth will make you free.

Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; 32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:31-32

May the Lord Bless you and shine His face upon you.

 


 

The Introduction of Yoga into the West

Much of the introduction of Yoga into the West has been quite ironically based upon the actual initial inverse of this now current trend. That is the introduction of Western Ideas and Christianity into the East.

It is hard to tell the outcome if India had been left untouched, but speculation aside, when the Christian Missionaries entered India en masse they introduced ideas and ways of thinking which indelibly altered the religious and national direction.

What was completely a religion that was indifferent to assisting the destitute, the weak, the hungry, the sick, poor and naked, (based upon the belief that to intervene in the outworking of the persons karma would only be a postponement till the next life at best and prevent the evolution of the soul at worst), began (though in a limited manner) to adopt the missionary ideals of caring for the sick, hungry, brought in by the Christian Missionaries, both Catholic and Protestant.

The same applied in the matter of evangelism. Something that Hinduism originally did not participate in any great or grand manner.

It was the introduction of the idea of evangelizing, proselyting, that religious thinkers in the East began to adopt the same manners and customs.
One of the great tools of evangelisation being Yoga.
(This also does not bring into focus the upheaval and changes brought about by the violent conquest of Islam and prior to that, Alexander the Great’s incursions into and influence upon India.)

Yoga being introduced by a number of individuals over the years, I wish to only mention some of the main players briefly.image

Hindu Indian Monk, Swami Vivekanda who attended the first Parliament of world religions in 1893 was spokesman for Vedanta and founded the Vedanta Society of America in 1894.

He stated

The time has come for the Hinduism of the Rishis to become dynamic. Shall we stand by whilst alien hands attempt to destroy the fortress of the Ancient Faith?…shall we remain passive or shall we become aggressive, as in the days of old, preaching unto the nations the glory of the Dharma?…In order to rise again, India must be strong and united, and must focus all its living forces. To bring this about is the meaning of my sannyasa!” Hinduism invades America by Wendell Thomas pg 62-74

Later this work was continued by Swami Prabhavanandaimage

image… one of the pioneer swamis sent to America by the direct disciples of Ramakrishna to build on the work started by Swami Vivekananda at the turn of the century.” http://vedanta.org/about-the-vedanta-society/swami-prabhavananda/

 

Another Guru, B.K.S Iyengar (also known as Guruji) redeveloped Hatha yoga into a usable and more friendly yoga for the West in the late 1960’s and 70’s. Popularising it for all walks of life, aged, injured, inexperienced, and experienced by introduction of props to assist in maintaining and achieving correct posture and avoiding injury.

image

The clear fact that injuries caused by yoga are rarely, if ever, discussed but rather swept under the carpet by vested interests, these will be discussed later on. Such revelations though at least have come from Yoga practitioners themselves.

Iyengar published 14 books. “Light on Yoga” being the first in 1966 now in 18 languages. He also taught Aldous Huxley and numerous individuals.

His official website claims

image

He gets students to perform and break barriers. He brings about an automatic transformation in the mind and habits of people. He is the only person to teach the highest aspects of yoga – Atma Darshan through asanas.” http://www.bksiyengar.com/modules/Guruji/guru.htm

 

I thought it was only physical exercise? “… an automatic transformation in the mind and habits” is more than just physical exercise.

For those who wish to argue against this line of thinking keep reading this document as it will clear up any misconceptions that you can separate the physical benefits from the spiritual effects.

Others have come of which one of the most successful has been Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in the 1960’s.

His influence over the last 50 years has been considerable to say the least.

1967 Maharishi Mahesh Yogi with BeatlesIn the late 1960s and early 1970s, the Maharishi achieved fame as the guru to The Beatles and other celebrities. He started the TM-Sidhi programme, in the late 1970s that claimed to offer practitioners the ability to levitate and to create world peace.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maharishi_Mahesh_Yogi

The following statistics give us an idea what just this one man achieved.

  • 40,000 TM teachers trained
  • 5,000,000 taught TM
  • 1000’s of teaching centres
  • 100’s collages and universities in countries like India, Canada, US, UK, Switzerland.
  • Charities
  • For profit businesses in health and nutrition and organic farms.
  • Worth billions

In a message titled “The dangers of Yoga” Dr Ron Carlson states that in his study of Transcendental Meditation, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi was commissioned by his Master Swami Brahmananda Saraswati (Guru Dev – meaning personified deity or divine teacher) to make a simple form of Yoga and Hinduism and take it to the world.

Another words Hindu evangelism.

Helena_Petrovna_Blavatsky4The introduction of Eastern and Hindu thought has also come through Western Occultists yet were also inspirations to many leaders in the East.

Most importantly through Madam Blavatsky, in the late 1800’s, who travelled India to learn of the knowledge of the East and created the Theosophical Society.

One little known influence was upon Mahatma Gandhi is seen in his diary entry for January 30 1928

Mahatma Gandhi with Annie Besant at Madras 1921

 

“I have come to the conclusion that Theosophy is Hinduism in theory, and that Hinduism is Theosophy in practice.” Harijan Journal of Mahatma Gandhi

Gandhi himself was a member of the Theosophical lodge in London.

 

 

Ida CraddockIra Craddock founder of the Church of Yoga in Chicago 1899, committed suicide in 1902 after receiving instruction from her spirit guide as an answer to her 9 year court case over censorship of her writings. She claims in her book Heavenly Bridegrooms that she was married to this spirit / angel.

She said an outside intelligence was telling her what to write.

It’s name was called Soph. Incredibly significant if you compare that with the modern Emergent Church Movement of the 21st Century. 

Ira boasted that Genesis 6 was a good thing, and that was what was happening to her which states

Genesis 6:1-5 

“And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,  2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.  3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.  4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.  5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.”

(I am not going to enter the debate as to whether or not that passage actually means that.)

Aleister Crowley (whom we will speak of shortly) spoke well of Ira Craddock and her works stating in his publication “The Equinox”, the official organ of the OTO Ordo Templi Orientis that Heavenly Bridegrooms was

“… one of the most remarkable human documents ever produced, and it should certainly find a regular publisher in book form. The authoress of the MS. claims that she was the wife of an angel. She expounds at the greatest length the philosophy connected with this thesis. Her learning is enormous….This book is of incalculable value to every student of occult matters. No Magick library is complete without it.” The Equinox Vol. V No. 4 Sex and Religion

This is not the first Yoga practitioner who has contacted spirits and committed suicide as we will see later.

Aldous Huxley, another influential Westerner, from 1939 till his death in 1963, was heavily involved with the Vedanta Society of Southern California, lectured at the temple, wrote the introduction to the “Bhagavad Gita: The Song of God” translated by Swami Pradhavanada and contributed 48 articles to the magazine “Vedanta and the West.”, and was on the editorial board for the magazine between 1951 – 1962. Source:http://www.gurusfeet.com/guru/aldous-huxley

Swami Prabhavananda, Aldous Huxley and Christopher Isherwood

Above: Swami Prabhavananda, Aldous Huxley and Christopher Isherwood

Aldous Huxley worked with Timothy Leary in experimenting with hallucinogens and worked to break down the social taboos which assisted in the outbreak of the beginning of free love and the drug abuse of the 1960’s.

Timothy Leary himself sought to bring about the vision of the following man who was greatly influential in introducing teachings of the East which manifested as Western Occultism.

Timothy Leary himself stated in an interview on PBS

“I’ve been an admirer of Aleister Crowley and I’m carrying on much of the work that he started over 100 years ago.”

Timothy Leary in his own words on PBS.

imageThe “the wickedest man in the world” (according to his mother), Aleister Crowley founder of the OTO (Ordo Templi Orientis) one wicked organisation of which many well known personalities are a part, eg: Paris Geldoff, Kayne West, Beyonce and Jay Z, and founder of the Gay Movement in the 1960’s, Harry Hay just to name a few.

He writes in the OTO’s official organ

The letters OTO mean Ordo Templi Orientis but they also have secret meaning for initiates.

The aims of the OTO can only be understood fully by it’s highest initiates; but it may be said openly that it teaches Hermetic Science or Occult Knowledge, the Pure and Holy Magick of Light, the Secrets of Mystic attainment, Yoga of all forms, Gnana Yoga, Raja Yoga, Bhakta Yoga, and Hatha Yoga and all other branches of the secret Wisdom of the Ancients.

In its bosom repose the Great Mysteries. Its brain has resolved all the problems of philosophy and life. It possesses the secret of the Stone of the Wise, of the Elixir of Immortality, and of the Universal Medicine. Moreover it possesses a Secret capable of realising the world-old-dream, of the Brotherhood of Man.

This was written when it was completely unacceptable in society. We can see though that this has come to be mainstream via clever social manipulation and indoctrination, via the media, music, movies and TV, and education, especially the “brotherhood of man” in

  1. the push to unite all things including religions into Oneness.
  2. The current movement of the brotherhood in the Middle East and the associations of the term with Freemasonry.
  3. The Motto of the French Revolution :Liberty, Egalite, Fraternity / Brotherhood. The implications of which cannot be fully fleshed out here in relation to Prophecy.1

It is clear from “The Equinox” that Yoga is Occult Knowledge and or Hermetic Science, which is

… science falsely so called”. 1 Timothy 6:20. aka gnw/sij gnosis knowledge or science, yeudw,numoj psudeonumos, falsely named. Note “The Equinox” stated

… Yoga of all forms…”.

Hermetic Science derives from Hermes Trismegistus (meaning thrice blessed) who wrote a number of books and or preserved a number of works which were lost in the great fire in the Alexandrian Library.

Hermes is depicted as holding an emerald upon which all Egyptian philosophy is written.

For example two works in the Hermetica are “The Emerald Tablets” and “The Book of Thoth”. (For those who have not read my blog on Avicci feel free to examine that as it mentions this this.)

Quoting well known 33 degree Freemason and American Civil War General Albert Pike

The Hermetic Art is therefore, at the same time a religion, a philosophy, and a natural science. As a religion, it is that of the Ancient Magi and the Initiates of all ages; as a philosophy, we may find its principles in the school of Alexandria and the theories of Pythagoras; as a science, we must inquire for its processes of Paracelsus, Nicholas Flamel, 2 and Raymond Lulle.” Morals and Dogma.

Simply then, do you think Christian’s should be participating in Hermetic Arts, or Sciences?

I think the answer to that is a resounding no!

We have been led to believe Hinduism is disjointed and chaotic but in 1966 at the First World Hindu Conference, a stratagem was drawn up by top Hindu leaders up to convert the world.  This does not discount the efforts that had been made by others in the past but this commenced a more determined and increased effort in evangelisation in the west.

It was clear from Mahatma Gandhi in his Diary entries that he was not satisfied with the direction the Theosophical society was taking at the time stating

“There are many admirable works in Theosophical literature, which one may read with the greatest profit; but it appears to me that too much stress has been laid upon mental and intellectual studies: upon argument, upon the development of occult powers, and that the central idea of theosophy, the brotherhood of mankind and the moral growth of man has been lost sight of in these.”  Harijan Journal of Mahatma Gandhi

Gandhi has the same ambition as “the wickedest man in the world”.

It certainly appears Hinduism has taken upon itself the need to evangelise the West itself and not leave it to Western Occultism itself. I quote from the the Vishva Hindu Parishad who launched a Missionary initiative at Allahabad India to show they are in fact organized.

In 1979 at the second world congress of Hinduism attended by 60000 delegates from around the world it was announced

“Our mission in the West has been crowned with fantastic success. Hinduism is becoming the dominant world religion, and the end of Christianity has come near.”

Also in 1981 at a Transcendental Meditation Conference in India a TM spokesman stated

The entire mission of TM is to counter the ever spreading demon of Christianity.”

This of course wouldn’t be apostate Christianity.
If we go back to the late 19th Century and look again at Swami Vivekananda who we have already met at the Parliament of World Religion, he stated the objective was to re-catalyse

“… society compounded of Western Science, Socialism and Indian Spirituality”.

This all reveals that a concerted effort in evangelism of the west has taken place not just to find new converts, but is especially antagonistic toward Christianity and in particular the exclusivity of Jesus Christ. If you have read my blog on The Generation Gap, you will see symmetry in the efforts of seemingly disparate groups to establish the same thing.

It is then worth while asking yourself how you can practise Yoga as a Christian, have you just been duped by a slick evangelistic tool? Keep reading to find out.

What is deeply concerning is that over time we have now the rapid rise of the same attitude towards “Christianity” coming from supposed “Christians” promoting similar avenues to spiritual enlightenment and have stated the very same anti Christian sentiments.

For example, we hear this from Erwin McManus author of the “Christian” book “The Barbarian Way” stating in an interview

“My goal is to destroy Christianity as a world religion and be a re-catalyst for the movement of Jesus Christ… Some people are upset with me because it sounds like I’m anti-Christian. I think they might be right.” http://www.christianexaminer.com/Articles/Articles%20Mar05/Art_Mar05_09.html

His book is endorsed by Rick Warren.

It is wise then to see these “Christian” leaders in this light as possible evangelists for another Jesus and another Gospel, working hand in hand with other religions to overthrow the Kingdom of God and to establish a centralised global united religious kingdom founded upon common spiritual denominators be it intentionally or not.

I can personally understand where McManus is coming from in that when I left a church many years ago, I was deeply affected by the experience and found myself questioning everything including my faith and whether I even had any left. Unlike McManus though, I was not satisfied until I found my faith established on the Word of God and facts not feelings and opinions.

To say you wish to destroy Christianity is the talking of a fool who does not know the difference between feelings and reality. His anger and Ephesians 4:26-27  

“Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:  27 Neither give place to the devil. “

He has truly given place to the devil. A door I literally came to in my mind, opened, and perceiving what lay beyond refused to enter further.

Some say “Christian” means little Christ. I should be far from that honour I think.

But believers in Christ were first called Christians in the book of Acts at Antioch (Acts 11:26)  as an insult, and in the tradition of the Hebrew people down through the ages, is an example of embracing what was meant as an insult or joke and turning it round to mean something completely different.

As scripture states Jesus despised the shame of the cross.  He looked down on it,  he did not esteem it, it was meaningless to the greater good it would achieve.

I for a time also developed ideas that could maintain my faith in Christ and express my dissatisfaction with Church and Christians. I created a personal term “Christianarchy” back in early 1990 to mean the individual believers in Christ as the invisible church operating under the direction of the Holy Spirit, appearing as elements operating chaotically to outward observers but all working towards a common goal in Christ (spiritual unity though unified action) which would come together at the end but without scheming and planning.

This was in hindsight a support mechanism and defence to retain my faith and distance myself from the hypocrisy and wickedness I could see in the Church till my strength grew to resist lies and falsehood from the church, and be set straight myself and from my own hypocrisy.

Equally the word “Church” is artificial but many use it who do understand this fact because many more do not understand it’s false use and background of the word. So the term is used to avoid confusion.

Proto-Reformer and Bible Translator John Wycliff understood Church meaning “circle” (being contrary to ecclesia aka congregation) invoking pagan tradition and not Biblical authority, and endemic down through the centuries in the Christian Believers who “trust in princes” (Psalm 118:9) linking church with the secular authority. The Reformers made this fatal mistake and now we see how both the original “falling away” of the early church into Roman Catholicism is happening again on a global scale, where the adoption of alternative religious practices like yoga is a symptom.

 

Defining Yoga

image

Oxen Yoked together with a Yoke.

Yoga is a Sanskrit word meaning to yoke as in to yoke or unite with god/God.

I obtained a definition from http://www.thefreedictionary.com/yoga

“yo·ga

n.

1. also Yoga A Hindu discipline aimed at training the consciousness for a state of perfect spiritual insight and tranquillity.

2. A system of exercises practiced as part of this discipline to promote control of the body and mind.

yoga [ˈjəʊgə]

n (often capital)

1. (Philosophy) (Non-Christian Religions / Hinduism) a Hindu system of philosophy aiming at the mystical union of the self with the Supreme Being in a state of complete awareness and tranquillity through certain physical and mental exercises

2. (Philosophy) any method by which such awareness and tranquillity are attained, esp a course of related exercises and postures designed to promote physical and spiritual wellbeing See Astanga yoga, hatha yoga, power yoga, raja yoga, Sivananda yoga

[from Sanskrit: a yoking, union, from yunakti he yokes]”

God though is an artificial concept injected into Yoga to placate the theists of the time in Hinduism, as Hinduism is fundamentally an Humanistic religion.

The object of the Yoga system by inserting the conception of a personal God into the Skhya is merely to satisfy the theists, and to facilitate the propagation of the theory of the universe expounded in the Saòkhya. The idea of God, far from being organically interwoven in the Yoga system, is only loosely inserted. In the Yoga sutras the passages that treat of God stand disconnected, and are, indeed, in direct contradiction to the contents and aim of the system.” Encyclopaedia of Religion and Ethics Volume 12 pg 831

Yet even then in Hindu philosophy God is not as we define him.

In India and Eastern Beliefs, God is an impersonal whole of which everything is a part of that whole. Oddly enough it is emptiness, void, darkness. Everything is a part of God and is god. This is called Pantheism and Panentheism.

(Everything is god and god in is everything respectively.)

Hinduism which is Indian Philosophy (Yoga is 1 of 6 schools of Indian philosophy) teaches that the physical world is an illusion (maya), that the only reality is impersonal nothingness.

These six schools which accept the Vedas are grouped into 3 sets of two orthodox schools

“ I Nyaya Vaiseshika

II Sankhya Yoga

III Mimamas Vedanta 

Sankhya, mentioned in the Bhagavad Gita, teaches that there is only “matter (prakrti) and souls (purusha)…two elements completely independent of each other.” Prakrti, as all material existence, is “Under the influence of purusha” where “the cosmos evolves, and the annals of the world are the history of this evolution. An important aspect of Sankhya is its theory of evolution through… three forces, known as gunas… usually translated ‘qualities’.” These three forces interact resulting in the universe pulsating called “kalpas lasting about 42,000 million years… of growth, followed by collapse.”pg 176, 178-179 The Spirit of Hinduism by David Burnett.

The Sankhya school of thought was an atheistic Hindu Philosophy and was later absorbed into the Yogic School. Thus yogic thought has to have accommodated an atheistic viewpoint into it’s thinking.

It seems to hold an amazing similarity found in the current climate in today’s church which does not hold “solely” to the Bible but to mystical spiritual experiences of “God” through practicing spiritual disciplines that elicit an experience.

This makes sense then that as we approach the time of the end that such thinking from such diverse Religions as Christianity and Hinduism should be finding common ground as a catalyst for religious unity in the future.

It also solves the dead end road of materialistic evolution and finally places man as god since God has been removed or demoted at the beginning of this process in the mid 1800’s throughout the Western Nations. An end which some have clearly understood from the outset of this, thus far, 200 year journey (and longer).

In Hinduism it is said the reason there is suffering and specifically, you have suffering, is because you think you are a personal being.

You must get rid of personality, get rid of thinking, feeling and senses in order to transcend to the state of reality which is impersonal nothingness.

Thus in India they developed techniques to achieve this state, of which one was called Yoga which was systematized in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali in around 200BC.

It was designed to break down the mind and personality and to transcend.

These were ascetic practices, thus you will find similar objectives in all asceticism. Catholic Monks practised asceticism as much as Muslim ascetic’s, or Hindu’s. It would be better classified as Mysticism, which is flooding the Church at every level and every denomination today.

The purpose of yoga is stated to be, in Sanskrit, citta-vṛtti-nirodhaḥ (the cessation of the transformation of awareness). The elimination of the thought processes, mind and personality for transcendence.

It is about killing the body, not physical fitness.

In general terms it is to escape the wheel of samsara, to escape the cycle of reincarnation.

Yoga is an 8 fold process 3 called Asanda Yoga which has two phases called Hatha Yoga and Raja Yoga.

Dr Ron Carlson describes the 8 fold process like this

Hatha Yoga are the first five outer stages, certain disciplines, body postures and exercises called asanas, breathing exercises called praynamas. All external

Fifth Stage Prathahari being the desensitizing of the senses and the tearing down of the personality.

Once these have been accomplished, this prepares you for Raja Yoga and the three stages. Internal stages are of focusing the mind on mantra (word or sound) or yantra (a geometric symbol).

You do this to achieve the final state of sumati kyalomocsha which is total absorption into nothingness. Aka Hindu reality. Like a drop of water falling into the ocean and merging in the One and thus you loose yourself and find peace.”

This is where we find the current trend in Politics, Religion, Finance, Law, etc running at breakneck speed to merge into One. World Government, Global Currency, Global Bank, One Religion,  World Court, World Police, etc.

If you examine society over the last 150 years you will see we have all be undergoing a similar social program that parallels the 8 fold process.

This is how Hinduism and Socialism both find common ground in that the objective of both systems is the elimination of the individual and becoming One with the Collective.

It is also the lack of distinction between God and self that lends itself to a perfect adaptation with Humanism.

There are a number of different yoga’s as listed below

Yoga: Exercises (physical, mental or spiritual) based on Eastern metaphysical assumptions designed to aid in enlightenment or self-realization. Goals sometimes include altered states of consciousness or uniting the practitioner with the impersonal pantheistic God. Types of Yoga include: Karma Yoga (spiritual union through correct conduct), Bhakti Yoga (spiritual union through devotion to a Guru), Juana Yoga (spiritual union through hidden knowledge), Raja Yoga (spiritual union through mental control), Hatha Yoga (spiritual union through body control/meditation), Kundalini Yoga (spiritual union through focusing inner energy) and Tantra Yoga 4 (spiritual union through sexual practices). Yoga philosophy is based on the concept of reincarnation and is drawn from the Upanishads and other Hindu scriptures. http://www.sullivan-county.com/id3/expositer.htm#Y

Most Christians will try to argue that their yoga is just physical. Well it is clear from here and through the rest of this document, that it is Hatha Yoga Christians are generally talking about and will assist you in taking at least one step in your involvement with the occult since it is “… spiritual union through body control.” It is not about health.

That in itself should suffice but in all truth when you are deep in something it can take quite a significant amount of leverage to bring someone out of the quicksands of deception.

But let me bring this home leaving you without excuse by quoting from a well known occultist, Alice Bailey who writes concerning the 7 Rays, speaking about the 4h Ray

 

IV Conflict

Birth of Horus

Intensity of Struggle

Hatha Yoga, the most dangerous method of psychic growth.

Saturn Green

pg 86 Esoteric Psychology – A Treatise on the Seven Rays Volume 1 by Alice Bailey

This is just doing the exercises as many say thinking they have cleverly disarmed any argument. There is no argument, you do not know what you are doing.

Time to seriously consider what you are doing.

 

The Asanas and Sequencing

As you have probably picked up already, An Asana is the term used for the differing Yoga postures. Sequencing is also part of this in that it is the series of Asanas to be performed one after the other.

In fact many yoga practitioners know this. But why is sequencing important?

Firstly on a physical level a series of yoga asanas or positions are sequenced together on the basis of efficiency of movement, moving from one position to a logically similar but different position and so on so to create a fluid movement in the yogic routine and avoid a disjointed, stop start type of routine which would occur with diverse yoga asanas say moving from lotus, to standing on your head to cobra. That is not good sequencing.

But is it only about the physical flow of movement?

Unfortunately my explanation is merely a Western way of looking at sequencing so now let me put that in the correct light.

Let’s examine some Sequences.

For example:

Surya Namaskar  (Sun Salutation)

where you can blend different Asanas together like the following:

Tadasana (Mountain Pose)
Urdhva Hastasana (Upward Salute)
Uttanasana (Standing Forward Bend)
Lunge
Plank Pose
Chaturanga Dandasana (Four-Limbed Staff Pose.)
Urdhva Mukha Svanasana (Upward-Facing Dog Pose
Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downwards-facing Dog Pose)
Lunge
Uttanasana (Standing Forward Bend)
Urdhva Hastasana (Upward Salute)
Tadasana (Mountain Pose)

The Above Sequence is the Sun Salutation of which we are informed

The Salutation is meant to greet the sun and used as a way to worship the Hindu Sun god Surya who is the symbol of health and immortal life. The 12 distinct poses of the Sun Salutation each have their own mantra and the series is meant to celebrate the sun and the sun god.” http://www.livestrong.com/article/395082-spiritual-meanings-of-yoga-postures/

Thus the Sun Salutation would be better called Surya Salutation as that is the name of the Sun god5

“The Sanskrit word namaskar stems from namas, which means “to bow to” or “to adore.” “ http://www.yogajournal.com/practice/928

Surya Namaskar then is Sun adoration or simply Sun Worship.

You cannot explain away your ability to bow to the sun in adoration and not find yourself in conflict with Exodus 20:3-5

Thou shalt have no other gods before me. 4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: 5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;”

It is clear that the Sun salutation sequence is a bowing down to the Sun god Surya and each Asana also has a Mantra as well.

There is no excuse for this. Do you want blessing or curse on you and your children?

That is just one Sequence.

Now I know for sure some will be saying “well I won’t perform that one”. Instead of accepting the Word of God as a sharp double edged sword of God and a quick blow to your flesh, would you would prefer the death of a thousand paper cuts then continue to read.

Below is an example of some Asanas and some Sequencing.

There are hundreds of different poses and different types of yoga, starting from types that appear harmless and merely for “physical exercise” all the way to dark and macabre yoga called Tantra which is a whole incorporation of dark Hindu arts. (In actuality Tantra is Hinduism’s “Black Magic” (left hand path) whilst the other yoga’s are “white magic”(right hand path). What’s you poison?)

I quote the following from a site following the left hand path,

“We are practising yoga and meditation from the Indian Vamachara Tantra. It belongs to the left hand path. We are practising physical yoga techniques through asanas where we in different movements and positions learn how to control latent inner forces.

Unlike ordinary yoga and meditation we are not striving to reach the illumination called Samadhi where the adept becomes “one with God” when the Kundalini melts together with the energy zone Sahasrara above the head. We are using a rare and dark system in which the kundalini reaches beyond Sahasrara. This does not lead to Samadhi but to Kaivalya where the adept becomes like a god. We are working with a number of hidden chakras besides the energy zones that are more commonly used in Yoga and meditation.” http://web.archive.org/web/20120217162758/http://www.dragonrouge.net/english/general.htm

Are your trying to become one with God (Samadhi) or become a god yourself (Kaivalya)? Answer that Christian.
I hope your answer is neither!

Interestingly it appears the Western for of Yoga is more of the left hand path leading to all becoming god’s.
This makes sense concerning the direction our society is heading.

There are numerous ways of sequencing depending on the yoga practitioner.

But as we will discover nothing is as it “appears” because in the west we are not told the whole truth about what yoga does and the stages one passes through, because they need us to participate in the wider social process of “change” (See my blog on the Generation Gap.)

It is these methods which are to bring the practitioner of yoga into a oneness unity with the Universe.

imageimageThis is where the New Age idea of Oneness comes in and that we are one and many and why in the movie the Matrix for example Neo is called The One. Many other movies do the same.

This idea is being heavily promoted now in new Bible translations, like Eugene Petersons The Message where Jesus is called “The One”.

It is a practice that comes from Hinduism as foundational and branches into other Hindu based Eastern Religions like Buddhism etc, and is specifically tailored for spiritual experience.

Regardless of what anyone tells you, the very leaders of Hinduism make it very clear what Yoga is about.

Yogi Baba Prem who is a Vedavisharada trained in the traditional gurukural system and has authored several books and has had numerous articles published states this about Yoga

Modern day scholars from India frequently present the attitude of “let them have yoga, [the West] … the reality is that yoga is a part of Hinduism. Allowing one part to be taken from Hinduism opens a door for the distortion of the teachings. We must remember that the roots to modern day yoga comes from Vedic Yoga. The same Vedic Yoga that is the authority of Hinduism.

Scholars at universities should take the stand that yoga is part of Hinduism, though one is required to be a Hindu to practice yoga.

One does need to be Hindu to practice yoga, but it is clear from historical evidence that Yoga comes from Hinduism.

In an article dated January/February/March, 2006 in an article titled “Yoga renamed is still Hindu” by Subhas R. Tiwari in Hinduism Today states

“The simple, immutable fact is that yoga originated from the Vedic or Hindu culture. Its techniques were not adopted by Hinduism, but originated from it.” These facts need to be unequivocally stated in light of some of the things being written to the contrary by yoga teachers. The effort to separate yoga from Hinduism must be challenged because it runs counter to the fundamental principles upon which yoga itself is premised, the yamas (restraints) and niyamas (observances). These ethical tenets and religious practices are the first two limbs of the eight-limbed ashtanga yoga system which also includes asana (postures), pranayama (breath control), pratyahara (sense withdrawal), dharana (concentration), dhyana (meditation) and samadhi (contemplation/Self Realization). Efforts to separate yoga from its spiritual centre reveal ignorance of the goal of yoga.”

 

patanjali 8 limbs of yoga

Above: Explaining the 8 Limbs of Yoga . Picture from: http://www.yogaholistic.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/patanjali.jpg

Subhas R Tiwari is a professor at the Hindu University of America. He is a graduate of the Bihar Yoga Bharati University with a master’s degree in yoga philosophy.

He goes on saying

This 5,000-year-old system is perhaps the best known, most accessible and cost effective health and beauty program around. Yoga is also much more, as it was intended by the Vedic seers as an instrument which can lead one to apprehend the Absolute, Ultimate Reality, called the Brahman Reality, or God.” http://web.archive.org/web/20090109020103/http://www.hinduismtoday.com/archives/2006/1-3/09_opinion.shtml

Maria Montenegro, a teacher of Yoga for 8 years says regarding the asanas (positions)

The positions honour various Hindu deities” You hold positions for spiritual purposes.”11’00” Interview of Maria Montenegro by Fran Sankey – Should Christians do yoga

I quote from her website

“Hatha yoga uses various postures called asanas. Many asanas are based on postures that honour Hindu deities who manifest themselves in forms such as the sun, the tiger, the tree, the snake, etc.” http://www.christiananswersforthenewage.org/Articles_Yoga.html

Remembering how we heard that “Hatha Yoga [was] (spiritual union through body control)”, this is reinforced by J Gordon Melton

“Hatha yoga can be thought of as the means of attaining union through developing control of the physical body.” J. Gordon Melton, New Age Encyclopedia, p. 207.

So why do they say this?

Well Hatha is made up of two words “ha” meaning moon and “tha” meaning sun. So we are dealing with Sun and Moon worship.

Hatha Yoga means more than mere physical exercise or postures.

“In Sanskrit, the moon is known as “Ha” and the sun is “Tha” – thus Hatha. Hatha Yoga refers to the practice of bringing harmony to the two main energies in the human body – the energy of the moon and the energy of the sun. The third main energy channel is called “shushumna” – which relates to the central nervous system. Our consciousness continuously flows through this central spinal channel.” The meaning of Hatha Yoga by Paramhans Swami Maheshwarananda (Swamiji). http://www.yogaindailylife.org/knowledge/yoga-philosophy/the-meaning-of-hatha-yoga

This concept is practiced in rapid breathing exercises by blocking the left nostril breathing in through the right nostril and then blocking the right nostril and breathing out as it is surmised the energy of the sun runs through the energy lines of the body to the right nostril and the energy of the moon runs through alternate lines of energy to the left nostril.
It is a shame that those who suffer allergies are restricted in their spiritual development. 

Richard Hittleman author of “Yoga: The 8 steps to Health and Peace” and early pioneer on Hatha Yoga writes about taking his program to

“… prepare the physical and subtle bodies for the esoteric objectives of Hatha Yoga.” pg 110

His “program” is for the unfit, non dextrous Westerner who has gown up sitting on chairs, been transported everywhere and not conditioned to perform most of the asanas unlike those who have been conditioned to sitting on the ground, legs crossed etc even as adults.

When he says “esoteric objectives” he is talking about the inner or spiritual aspects of the practise for the practitioner. Thus by performing his “prepatory” exercises, you have been readied for receiving the spiritual aspects of the exercise.
This is called conditioning.

The claim is that Hatha Yoga is just physical exercise is delusional.

Maria Montenegro on her website also quotes Richard Hittleman who again put the mantra “it’s just physical exercise” of Hatha Yoga to bed yet again as Yoga Journal informs us,

Richard Hittleman, who had a television show on yoga, stated that as yoga students practiced the physical positions, they would eventually be ready to investigate the spiritual component which is “the entire essence of the subject” (Yoga Journal, May/June 1993, p. 68).” http://www.christiananswersforthenewage.org/Articles_Yoga.html

Yoga is not a technique for relaxation or fitness. It is an ancient religious technique designed for spiritual reasons. Spiritual reasons that have serious consequences.

You may obtain relaxation and fitness as a secondary by product but it is not the primary objective. We just mentioned the primary objective as religious and spiritual. And any benefit you obtain will certainly be offset by the spiritual component as you will shortly see.

 

Let me conclude this section on the following note as it leads into the next section very well.

The current climate which is all about relaxation, stress reduction supported by educational institutions for kids and adults. Workplaces “caring” for their staff are all promoting a concept to help transition the west into synthesis with the east.

Consider the following from well published and followed, witch, Starhawk, who states

“to open up the starlight consciousness . . . to make contact with the Divine within. The beginner must develop four basic abilities: relaxation, concentration, visualization, and projection. Relaxation is important because any form of tension blocks energy.” pg 62 The spiral dance by Starhawk

Why do you think everything is about “relaxation”, “health”, “fitness”, “food”. Just consider the TV shows over the last 5 years and see how they push this agenda. (See my blog on The Color RunTM

Our society has been sped up to generate stress, our food, water and air have been polluted on purpose to change human beings.

Consider the words of Jesuit Teilhard de Chardin (one of those involved in the Piltdown Man hoax)

“In 1946, Teilhard de Chardin foresaw the technology of the 21st Century, including genetic engineering and nanotechnology. He said that “the release of nuclear energy, overwhelmingly and intoxicating though it was,” was “simply the first act, even a mere prelude” in “a series of fantastic events” which would lead us to such feats as ‘…vitalisation of matter by the creation of super-molecules. The re-modelling of the human organism by means of hormones. Control of heredity and sex by the manipulation of genes and chromosomes… The arousing and harnessing of the unfathomable intellectual and effective powers still latent in the human mass… Is not every kind of effect produced by a suitable arrangement of matter? And have we not reason to hope in the end we shall be able to arrange every kind of matter, following the results we have obtained in the nuclear field?'” Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, “Some reflections on the Spiritual Repercussions of the Atom Bomb,” in the Future of Man pg 144 excepted from False Dawn by Lee Penn pg 349.

This sentence I emboldened because it is something we know for sure that is in our foods today and is changing boys into girls, visa versa, and maturing girls at younger ages.

Create the need to de-stress by offering relaxation the occult way and you open up to contact the “Divine within”. But promote it as a healthy lifestyle.

 

 

Kundalini

The purpose of Yoga is, through physical and mental exercises, to encourage and promote spiritual energy to move you through different stages of growth, physically (disabling or tuning out the 5 senses) psychologically (in changing your mind) and spiritually (unity with the ALL) whilst also being a matter of something not just theoretical or physical benefit but also something you experience spiritually.

This energy goes by various terms but one is Kundalini, which can be awakened by various asanas. For example:

“Kundalini uses headstand poses to awake and uncoil the serpent energy in the base of the spine, bringing it to the crown of the head.”
http://www.livestrong.com/article/395082-spiritual-meanings-of-yoga-postures/

Kundalini, we are told by occult authority, Hans-Ulrich Rieker, is

“… the mainstay of ALL yoga practices.” pg 101 The Yoga of Light: Hatha Yoga Pradipika

Notice that. He was unreserved about this. All yoga practices including Hatha Yoga.

This energy is worth considering in the light of

Luke 10:18

I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.”

and

2 Corinthians 11:14-15

14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.”

Notice Light and Lightning are both forms of energy.

This process by which this occurs I will explain.

This Kundalini Force rises up through what are called Chakras which are spiritual energy centres which number 7 all the way to the top of the head. The term Chakra means wheel.

Quoting a good explanation from a website that promotes yoga,

imageThe Kundalini, which is to nourish the tree of life within us, is coiled up like a serpent and therefore it has been called, ‘The Serpent Power’. It has been described in great detail in the Upanishads. Kundalini Yoga is supposed to be supreme in all the Yogas. Guru Vashistha asserted that Kundalini is the seat of absolute knowledge. The awareness of the presence of this primordial energy Kundalini within the human body was considered by the sages and saints to be the highest knowledge. The Kundalini and Chakras have been vividly described in Vedic and Tantric texts.” http://www.sol.com.au/kor/14_02.htm

The Upanishads, Vedas and Tantric texts are some of a number of different Hindu holy scriptures.

Another website with a positive attitude about yoga says

“Eliade talks about Tapas (heat or ardor) through which the acetic becomes clairvoyant and even incarnates the Gods; for when the small self is transcended we see with the Eye of the Universe. Eliade tells us that Kundalini moves in the central channel of the spine (susumna) by the force aroused by the mind, the prana is drawn upward through the susumna as a needle draws a thread. Kundalini is awakened by yoga positions and breath withholding until the prana becomes absorbed in the Void (Sunya); that is in mahasukha, the Great Bliss which destroys all sins.http://biologyofkundalini.com/article.php?story=Prana

This “Great Bliss” contradicts John the Baptist speaking of Jesus in John 1:29

Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.”

Note that 1 John 2:22 states

” Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.”

To deny is the Greek word avrne,omai (arneomai) meaning “contradict”.

Does Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God take away sin or does being absorbed in the void, the Great Bliss destroy all sins?

Someone is lying. Guess who?

All cultures world wide worship the serpent. There is only one text that warns us about the serpent the Word of God, the Bible.
Let’s first understand some basic things the Bible has to say about this before we go further.

Genesis 3:1-7

imageNow the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. 4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. 6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. 7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

So it was the Serpent who deceived Eve.

imageThe process by which Yoga operates is through the operation of something called Kundalini which is represented as a coiled SERPENT at the base of your spine. Kundalini meaning coiled.

imageimage

Kundalini is described in the Yoga Kundalini Upanishad 1:82 as a coiled snake.

The objective of the Yogic exercises is to encourage this serpent to uncoil and rise up imagethrough spine.

“Certain postures, such as the lotus position, are taken to activate the psychic energy centres. And specific breathing exercises are practiced to infuse the soul with cosmic energy floating in the air.” Concise Dictionary of the Occult and New Age by Debra Lardie pg 289

imageNow this Kundalini is fanned into flame by something called Prana which is also called Life Force or Breath (which is in all things aka Star Wars for example. The conditioning of the people has been on going for many decades.).

This then is akin to fire and oxygen, thus generating heat where you are the fuel.

As you may have noticed in the first posting https://theunfathomablemindofgod.wordpress.com/2013/10/ I mentioned this heat as subject to the laws of entropy and thermodynamics and is not the way to eternal life. It is a false fire and not of the Holy Spirit as He is depicted in Acts 2:3 also as fire.

The best lie always parallels the truth.

So Kundalini can also be depicted as a flame not just as serpent.

It is also called :

Chi – China

Qi – Korea

Ki – Japan

Mana – Polynesia

(This is why role playing games and in some computer games, magic characters have to rebuild their Mana to fire again or to cast another spell. This has mentally prepared the masses of young people back in the 1980’s and 1990’s. It’s called conditioning. Understand Mana has no relation to the Mana the Israelites ate for 40 years in the wilderness after leaving Egypt.)

Understand many of these game makers are fully aware of what they are promoting whilst saying at the same time (it’s just a game). For example examine Steve Jackson’s Game “Illuminati” and the uncanny prediction to the last “coincidental” 20 years of “terrorist attacks” and Government activity.

Thus the phrase “may the force be with you” from Star Wars is used in witchcraft.

We probably shouldn’t be using it. Even in jest. Things are far more serious than we would like to admit.

The Bible says in Daniel 11:35-38

35 And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed. 36 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done. 37 Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. 38 But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.

There is debate over what this refers. Some consider it fulfilled in Antiochus Epiphanies.

Others think this is speaking of a coming future event.

Yet that all aside, the question is, is God a force like electricity or is He a person?

This is an important issue.

Jehovah’s Witnesses consider the Holy Spirit a force too.

If he is not a person then He is impersonal and does not care for you, but since God is a person He cares for us and died for us.

In Genesis, Man was created in “the image of God”. Are we a force or do we have personality / soul?

Let’s examine Daniel 8:23-27 on this matter where we are told of one who shall understand dark sentences and make craft to prosper.

23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. 24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. 25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand. 26 And the vision of the evening and the morning which was told is true: wherefore shut thou up the vision; for it shall be for many days. 27 And I Daniel fainted, and was sick certain days; afterward I rose up, and did the king’s business; and I was astonished at the vision, but none understood it.”

What sort of dark sentences? Perl then cast off?

What sort of crafts? Sewing and knitting?

The answer to that is clearly incantations, spells and mantras. Which is the dark sentences of witchcraft.

Kundalini is also viewed in some circles as a dragon.

“The Red Dragon is a mythological entity which exists in all times and cultures. The Dragon can be viewed as a winged serpent. From the perspective of the history of religions the serpent is a symbol of the earth and the underworld. The eagle (and birds in general) are symbols of the heavens. The dragon is a unity of these two fundamental principles. The Dragon is a picture of the Hermetic principle “That which is below is like that which is above and that which is above is like that which is below”. In China the dragon is a symbol of Tao, that which is beyond all terms and all polarities (Yin and Yang) but also is the force behind all. The Dragon represents the unknown and the hidden energy in man and in nature. The word dragon comes from the Greek verb derkein which means “to see”. The Dragon is the principle of clear seeing: the ability to see things in a new light as they really are, beyond all illusions. For this reason the dragon has great wisdom and power in the myths. The wisdom of the dragon is symbolized by the treasure it guards or the pearl that the dragon carries in his mouth. To find this wisdom and knowledge man must search in his/her inner aspects and in the unknown. In Yoga the dragon is called the Kundalini, the force that is hidden inside man. The Draconian path strives to make this unconscious force and knowledge conscious. “A picture says more than a thousand words” and the symbol of the dragon and the myths about it carries information about how the unconscious can become conscious and how man can evolve http://web.archive.org/web/20120217162758/http://www.dragonrouge.net/english/general.htm

The Red Dragon is also spoken about in the scriptures in Revelation 12:3

“And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.”

This is not the only reference to the Dragon, and it specifically comes up repeatedly in The Book of Revelation as an enemy of Gods people.

Revelation 13:4-9  

“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?  5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.  6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.  7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.  8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.  9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.”

A nice contrast at the end of vs 9 “If any man have an ear, let him hear” whilst dragon means “to see”. We find currently the philosophy of Socrates and Karl Marx “if you don’t see it it does not exist” dominating our world, but it is interesting that in Romans 10:17  we read

“So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”

It brings more relevance to the Apostle Paul’s words in 2 Corinthians 5:6-8 

“Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:  7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight🙂  8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.”

It then shows clearly who are Christ’s and who are not for those who live by sight and followers of the Dragon but in John 10:27 Jesus tells us

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me”

This same site discussing the Red Dragon goes on to explain on which path they travel with their yoga stating

We are practising yoga and meditation from the Indian Vamachara Tantra. It belongs to the left hand path. We are practising physical yoga techniques through asanas where we in different movements and positions learn how to control latent inner forces. We are also using a certain form of Rune yoga where the forces of the runes are used.
The goal with our yoga and meditation is to awake the latent inner force that is called Kundalini in the Tantra. Unlike ordinary yoga and meditation we are not striving to reach the illumination called Samadhi where the adept becomes “one with God” when the Kundalini melts together with the energy zone Sahasrara above the head. We are using a rare and dark system in which the kundalini reaches beyond Sahasrara. This does not lead to Samadhi but to Kaivalya where the adept becomes like a god. We are working with a number of hidden chakras besides the energy zones that are more commonly used in Yoga and meditation.” http://web.archive.org/web/20120217162758/http://www.dragonrouge.net/english/general.htm

Understand that they are comparing the yoga path they are on with the “usual” right hand path” or white witchcraft or the “good” way, which is the path promoted in the west. 
Within the occult there are only 3 ways, the right hand path, the left hand path or the middle way. Which ever “way” you take it is opposed to the way of Jesus Christ.

2 Kings 22:2  states

“And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, and walked in all the way of David his father, and turned not aside to the right hand or to the left.”

Whilst Matthew 7:13-14  states

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:  Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”

The broad way is the middle way, a way that can incorporate many ways, it is inclusive.
The way of Jesus Christ is the Narrow Way. It is exclusive and is the little considered one way, a way that many try to claim is the middle way. Be not deceived, it most certainly is not.

 

 

The Hindu Legend of Patanjali and the Biblical Lucifer / Tyrus

As Previously mentioned Patanjali systematized the Yoga Sutras in around 200BC.

I wish to examine the legends behind this individual which is veiled in mystery.

There are claims of their being even 3 Patanjali’s in History and that the systematising of the Yoga Sutras have been a collaboration of different men who have placed these under the auspices of the original Patanjali. Not an uncommon practise in the past. Yet there seems to be considerable evidence that there was a primary Patanjali who at least commenced the process of systematisation.

None the less, the details of the history are quite irrelevant as they only deal with speculation and conjecture. The issue here is what the story’s tell us about Patanjali as they present themselves as very curious indeed.

Let’s look at (Guruji’s) Iyengar’s Invocation to Patanjali

Let us bow before the noblest of sages Patanjali, who gave yoga for serenity and sanctity of mind, grammar for clarity and purity of speech and medicine for perfection of health. Let us prostrate before Patanjali, an incarnation of Adisesa, whose upper body has a human form, whose arms hold a conch and a disc, and who is crowned by a thousand-headed cobra.” http://www.bksiyengar.com/modules/IYoga/sage.htm

Adisesa is called “Lord of Serpents” explained by Sri Sri

Patanjali

 

“Vishnu was lying on the bed of snakes — the serpent Adishésha with a 1,000 heads. When the Rishis approached Him, He gave them Adishésha (the symbol of awareness), who took birth in the world as Maharishi Patanjali.” http://www.artofliving.org/in-en/patanjali-yogasutra

 

Hence Patanjali came to this earth to give this knowledge of yoga which came to be known as the Yoga Sutras.

More of the story speaks of Gonika, who thinks her earthly life was at its end, had searched for a worthy son to whom she could transmit her knowledge. But she had found no one. When her penance (tapas) come to an end, she looked to the Sun God and prayed to Him to fulfil her desire. She took a handful of water, as a final oblation to Him, closed her eyes and meditated on the Sun. She opened her eyes and looked at her palms as she was about to offer the water. There she saw a tiny snake moving in her palms who took on human form. This tiny human male prostrated to yogini Gonika and asked her to accept him as her son. Thus, she named him Patanjali. ( Pata means fallen or falling and Anjali means palms folded in prayer).

This idea of the snake is most interesting for in Indian Culture and Hinduism the snakes are called Nagas. Their association with darkness is very appropriate whilst they also possessed “treasure” and were the keeper of the books of mystic knowledge.

Statue of Buddah in Laos“The snakes are the sons of Kadru, or of Surasa, one of the divine mothers. It has been related above (under ‘sungod’) that Garuda is their enemy and devours them, whence it has been concluded that the Nagas represent darkness which is dispelled by the sun. But there is another aspect of the Nagas which was more important for the imagination
of the people; they were probably regarded as guarding or possessing treasures, and assuming the shape of snakes.” Encyclopaedia of Religion and Ethics Volume 2 pg 809.

Thus Gonika’s hands were in a prayerful gesture (anjali) and he had fallen (pat) from heaven. http://www.iyengaryoga.in/life_patanjali.htm

This is how Sage Patanjali is said to have come into this mortal world. http://www.bksiyengar.com/modules/IYoga/legend.htm

It is quite apt that what appeared was a “tiny snake” which became human in form offered mankind wisdom and knowledge by enticing them to eat of the “Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil” Genesis 3 and in Revelation 12:7-9 we see him cast out of heaven

“And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,  8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.  9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”

We are also warned Satan can transform himself into an angel of light. 2 Corinthians 11:14.

Equally the story displays elements parallel to the Christian Scriptures in that this Patanjali fell (pat) from heaven.

A serpent that fell from heaven sounds like Lucifer who fell from heaven.

In another legend

… he was the son of Angiras, one of the ten sons of Brahma, the Creator; and of Sati, the consort of Siva. If so, this would make him not only the grandson of the Creator of the universe, but also the brother of Brhaspati, god of wisdom and eloquence and chief offerer of sacrifices.” http://www.kofibusia.com/patanjali/patanjali.php A biography of Śri Patañjali by Kofi Busia

Brhaspati (The Personification of the Planet Jupiter)“Brhaspati was seen as the personification of the planet Jupiter and thus as one of ten sons equates with the ancient pagan idea of there being ten planets. This also works into Greek Mythology with Zeus who holds the lightening bolt or also see in Norse Mythology as Thors Hammer. The naming of the seven days of the week also attests to an unexpected consistency in that our Thursday derived from the Scandinavian Thor’s Day is called in Sanskrit Brhaspati.” Encyclopaedia of Religion and Ethics Volume 3 pg 111.

The image of lightening in Zeus’s hand is quite apt when considered with the description of Satan “falling as lightening” Luke 10:18.

Again we see some similar characteristics with Lucifer / Satan who is said to have been the chief offerer of the sacrifice of praise (Jeremiah 33:11, Hosea 14:2, Hebrews 13:15) in heaven prior to be falling from heaven.

It is stated in Isaiah 14:11-12

Lucifer falling from Heaven

 

 

“Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee. 12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!”

 

 

Notice that Lucifer had “viols” instruments, similar to Patanjali with the conch, as explained further

One of the uplifted hands holds sankha, the conch that embodies the energy of sound. It both calls students to practice and announces the imminent ending of the world as they have so far known it.4 A biography of Śri Patañjali by Kofi Busiahttp://www.kofibusia.com/patanjali/patanjali.php

Uplifted hands is a symbol of praise and the conch embodies “the energy of sound”.

Such sound as a precursor to the end of the world as one famous occultist writes

“Great Forces are awaiting the hour when They can function as the Liberators and the Deliverers of mankind. But the door to Their entrance must be opened by humanity itself and it will be opened by a united act of the will, expressed through some formula of words and expressed in sound.” The Externalisation of the Hierarchy by Alice Bailey pg 173

Again quoting scripture this time from Ezekiel 28:12-16 again examine the symmetry

“Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. 13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. 14 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. 15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. 16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.”

Here we have Tyrus used as another name for Lucifer. If you look at the meaning of the Hebrew behind this it is found there are two key aspects that stand out being “adversary” and “bringing in besides or in addition to what is or has been brought in.” So Tyrus / Lucifer was bringing in something foreign and polluting the worship it appears. Namely Iniquity was found in him that is uniquely within compared to without.

Just as in one of the legends Patanjali was “brother of Brhaspati, god of wisdom” so to Tyrus is “full of wisdom” it also states a few verses later in Ezekiel 28:17

“Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.”

Patanjali and Lucifer / Tyrus / Satan / are both depicted with ability for sound, fell from heaven, and represented as a serpent, and transform into another appearance. 

I do not wish to go further into this as this suffices. It is equally difficult to establish further connections without wading too deep into Hindu mythology but what I have presented here I hope establishes a clear division from the teaching in Hinduism and Christianity. one venerates the serpent (nagas), the other loathes the serpent.

Consider Amos 3:3

“Can two walk together, except they be agreed?”

It has become perfectly clear that in our Modern eclectic society, the adaptation of portions of religious and cultural fashions and values have been transplanted into our own syncretistic culture. A “mixed drink” or “marrying and giving in marriage” as the Old and New Testament put it.

We are clearly living in the midst of, and under the influence of Babylon.
Thus I wish to look at a recent successful transplant in the ongoing process of generating a New World Culture, and a New World Religion / Spirituality.
A humanistic syncretistic spirituality, one that operates only on what we have in common.

I will not be entering into the issues dealing with complaints that have been made regarding claims of money given to charities and charities not receiving anything or receiving little for their effort in volunteering for this “for profit” event. There are plenty of websites that have covered that topic well enough.


The Color Run

The Color RunTM was founded in April 2011 by Travis Snyder who is CEO of The Color Run, LLC (Limited Liability Company). It is the largest running event in the world.

“… he has developed and directed it’s successful growth from a start up to 170 annual events and over 2 million participants in countries throughout North and South America, United Kingdom, Europe, South Africa, UAE, Australia, and Asia.”  http://www.linkedin.com/in/travislymansnyder

Don’t get me wrong. This is good business, and kudos for finding a way to turn running into a profit. That isn’t the problem  in and of itself though it can be a catalyst to other problems that can be compounded by the drive for profit.

On this line of thought we see as a means to increase the worth of this event, The Color RunTM partnered with IMG to bolster the brand profile and it’s profits,

“IMG Worldwide, the global sports, fashion and media company, and The Color Run, LLC, a unique 5K paint race event series, today officially announced a multi-year partnership agreement for the expansion of The Color Run into dozens of countries across Europe and Asia. Utilizing IMG’s worldwide network of offices and personnel, this move will fast track The Color Run globally.”“When the Color Run catches on in the UK, like it has in Australia, there will be no telling just how far we can take this,” said London-based IMG Endurance Managing Director, James Robinson. “We are thrilled to be working with Travis and his team on this exciting endeavor that is sure to become a worldwide phenomenon.”  Feb 26, 2013 http://img.com/news/news/2013/february/img-worldwide-and-the-color-runtm-sign-multi-year-.aspx

Senior Vice President of IMG Action Sports, James Leitz. expressed grand intentions regarding The Color RunTM

“It is our intention to take this excitement and unique business opportunity to countries around the world.”  Feb 26, 2013 http://img.com/news/news/2013/february/img-worldwide-and-the-color-runtm-sign-multi-year-.aspx

What they have successfully exported is a well marketed  feel good event. They are selling an experience. In a Capitalist society that is not illegal, it’s good business.

But, wherever there is big money, it is virtually impossible to stop the juggernaut which it backs.
No moral, no ethic, no virtue or commandment, can put a stop to the positive spin, public relations and reality control that lies behind a money driven venture.
Capitalism and Socialism have yoked up to create a devilish future of manipulation and control whilst still spinning a tidy sum at the end.

Jesus said in 1 Timothy 6:10 that

“The love of money is the root of all evil”1

and so it should be expected that money is driving this marketing of the New World Order, which is being marketed through positive experiential community events, lEarthHour2012ike Earth Hour, Clean Up Australia Day, March for Reconciliation and so on. We can now include The Color RunTM in that list of social indoctrination events, which participants ironically, willingly pay for.clean-up-australia-day

One of the key methods of effecting “positive” change in the world is through the health and fitness industry. (You could say an industry of “doing” if you have read my blog on the Generation Gap.)
The one key aspect we see in the introduction of health and fitness is that in most instances the health and fitness guru’s refer us to Eastern and New Age Practices like, Yoga, Meditation (not Biblical Meditation which means “to think upon”), Reiki, Acupuncture etc.

This has also found strong impetus now in the Church in the 21st Century.
It has been a slow moving and creeping cancer in the Church during the 20th Century, but it appears we have passed a turning point, a critical mass, and now the introduction of Mystical Experiences through techniques such as Centring Prayer, Labyrinths, “Christian” Yoga, Meditation, and a rush for the works of the Mystics over the last few thousand years in both Christian and non-Christian circles.

Another example is Rick Warren, a huge influence who has also pushed this same agenda in his “Daniel Health Plan”.

This need for the developing health and fitness industry (an industry never needed in the history of mankind till the last 40 years) has been engineered to generate a tension between the educated behaviour of individuals whose inability for self control and lack of general health and well being clashes with the desire to be able to do more and feel better.

My Grandparents did not have the issue of being unfit. (My Grandfather trained hard into his 80’s and as the doctors would state “He has a body of a 50 year old”.)
People in third world countries do not have the problem of being unfit (not that they are not unwell or suffer other issues).
Again as I mention always, this engineering of change has been drawn from the critical font of changing habits.

First and foremost was changing a God fearing generally healthy society in both physical, mental, emotional and spiritual matters.
This is done by impinging upon one or two of the above, you can automatically impinge upon a third and a fourth.
”As Above So Below, So Below As Above” as the occult maxim goes.

The one we should look at here, remaining relevant, is the physical.

Huge food corporations have spent millions in research to discover ways of effecting and changing the physical body.

‘There are , in fact, human groups that differ biologically and physically, and they can be ‘converted’ only by first transforming them within the human plane. I believe such a convergence to be possible.” Teilhard Letters from a Traveller pg 216 December 19, 1935.

Converted to what? He is referring to the fact that in his opinion some races cannot be “redeemed” or “saved” without first changing their physical characteristics and gene structure.

How these can be “converted” is explained by this same guy who was also involved in the Piltdown Man hoax

“With our knowledge of hormones we appear to be on the eve of having a hand in the development of our bodies and even of our brains. With the discovery of genes it appears that we shall soon be able to control the mechanism of organic heredity … Thought might artificially perfect the thinking instrument itself ; life might rebound forward under the collective effect of its reflection. The dream upon which human research obscurely feeds is fundamentally that of mastering, beyond all atomic or molecular affinities, the ultimate energy of which all other energies are merely servants ; and thus, by grasping the very mainspring of evolution, seizing the tiller of the world.

I salute those who have the courage to admit that their hopes extend that far ; they are at the pinnacle of mankind ; and I would say to them that there is less difference than people think between research and adoration. But there is one point that I would like them to note, one that will lead us gradually to a more complete form of conquest and adoration. However far science pushes its discovery of the ‘essential fire ” and however capable it becomes someday of remodelling and perfecting the human element, it will always find itself in the end facing the same problem —how to give to each and every element its final value by grouping them in the unity of an organised whole.” pg 250 The Phenomenon of Man Book Four Survival by Teilhard De Chardin.

Hormones have been shown to be a major causative factor in premature maturing of girls and also contributes to the bulking up of the body like an over inflated beach ball (polymers also contribute to the same by preventing the cells to shed water.) This sounds so like the obesity problem we currently have, is it possible that it is not just idleness and overeating that is the cause?

Lord Bertrand Russell also expressed similar sentiments stating

“Diet, injections, and injunctions will combine, from a very early age, to produce the sort of character and the sort of beliefs that the authorities consider desirable, and any serious criticism of the powers that be will become psychologically impossible. Even if all are miserable, all will believe themselves happy, because the government will tell them that they are so.” Russell, Bertrand. The Impact of Science on Society. 1951.

Diet and Injections to produce “character”, “beliefs” and stifle “criticism”? Surely Food, Water and vaccines, don’t do that? Do they?

A former scientist for Frito Lay states that they reduced

“… the ideal snack to a mathematical equation of taste and convenience – “P = A1T + A2C + A3U – B1$ -B2H – B3Q,” with the P standing for Purchase and the allure of fat and salt easily overcoming the H, or the public’s health concerns.” Salt, Sugar, Fat: How The Food Industry Hooked Us by Michael Moss http://www.occidentaldissent.com/2013/03/05/health-and-fitness-series-how-food-corporations-manipulate-your-diet/

Not only that but the very structure of molecules become essential in this “phood”TM

“… one of the most compelling and unsettling, aspects of the role of salt, sugar and fat in processed foods is the way the industry, in an effort to boost their power, has sought to alter their physical shape and structure. Scientists at Nestle are currently fiddling with the distribution and shape of fat globules to affect their absorption rate…” Salt, Sugar, Fat: How The Food Industry Hooked Us by Michael Moss http://www.occidentaldissent.com/2013/03/05/health-and-fitness-series-how-food-corporations-manipulate-your-diet/

What is essential is the polymerisation of many foods. That is they are plasticised.
In the US it common practice to put polymer beads into the last feed of the cattle so that the muscle fibres retain water and thus the animal weighs in heavier than it normally would, and in turn brings a better price.
Yet we eat that meat, and also eat many foods that have been plasticised, packed in plastic, so the leeching of polymers enter the food.
We also microwave food in plastic that enhances the leeching of polymer into food, whilst killing everything in it in the process. (A simple experiment to see this is make some packet jelly in a glass bowl and in a plastic bowl. The first few mm of the plastic bowl jelly is rubbery.)

If adding polymer to animal feed makes them heavier and bulk up retaining fluid why would this not be the case in people. Well it is, and this is merely one example of hundreds that effect our health and are allowed to effect our health by the powers that be, because of the love of augury1.

It is not that they don’t know, they do know, and turn a blind eye be it for money, power, and most importantly engineering a crisis which will require their help in the future.
(Generating dependency on Governance, bureaucracy and legislation.)

The same application must be applied in the Genetic Modification of foods. In discussion of this we read of studies that show that DNA from what we eat does get into our blood stream.

“Our bloodstream is considered to be an environment well separated from the outside world and the digestive tract. According to the standard paradigm large macromolecules consumed with food cannot pass directly to the circulatory system. During digestion proteins and DNA are thought to be degraded into small constituents, amino acids and nucleic acids, respectively, and then absorbed by a complex active process and distributed to various parts of the body through the circulation system. Here, based on the analysis of over 1000 human samples from four independent studies, we report evidence that meal-derived DNA fragments which are large enough to carry complete genes can avoid degradation and through an unknown mechanism enter the human circulation system. In one of the blood samples the relative concentration of plant DNA is higher than the human DNA. The plant DNA concentration shows a surprisingly precise log-normal distribution in the plasma samples while non-plasma (cord blood) control sample was found to be free of plant DNA.” http://www.collective-evolution.com/2014/01/09/confirmed-dna-from-genetically-modified-crops-can-be-transfered-to-humans-who-eat-them-2/ also
http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0069805

how bt corn is madeIt has also been shown that toxins Genetically engineered into crops, for example Bt toxin has been found in human blood, and that is bad news as it kills red blood cells. (red blood cells are critical for the transportation of oxygen throughout the body just as one critical factor.)
What is worse is that Professor Emeritus of Genetics at the University of Western Ontario Joe Cummins has also shown that Bt toxin damages the Ileum.

Ileum: Final and longest segment of the small intestine. It is specifically responsible for the absorption of vitamin B12 and the reabsorption of conjugated bile salts . The ileum is about 4 m (13 feet) in length and extends from the jejunum (the middle section of the small intestine) to the ileocecal valve, which empties into the colon (large intestine). http://www.i-sis.org.uk/Bt-toxin.php

What impact will it have to not absorb Vitamin B12 and loss of red blood cells? This is very serious, yet it is not without objective, and is but 2 issues in a plethora of health concerns over all food, water and air.

Australian Researcher Judy Carman, PhD was published in the peer reviewed journal Organic Systems after studying GMO feeds for pigs. An animal that has a very similar digestive system as we do.

We are told that pigs fed with GM feed had uteri 25% heavier than non-GM fed pigs continuing to tell us

“GM-fed pigs had a higher rate of severe stomach inflammation with a rate of 32% of GM-fed pigs compared to 12% of non-GM-fed pigs (p=0.004). The severe stomach inflammation was worse in GM-fed males compared to non-GM fed males by a factor of 4.0 (p=0.041), and GM-fed females compared to non-GM fed females by a factor of 2.2 (p=0.034).” http://www.organic-systems.org/journal/81/8106.pdf

Whilst the article goes on to discuss DNA vaccines and raises some serious concerns it mentions

“The bacterial genes used in constructing GM crops have a property that impacts on the immune system over and above the ability to produce antibodies.” http://www.organic-systems.org/journal/81/8106.pdf

This seriously has implications like with e-coli which is used as a critical component in recombination (joining) of of different genes. (This should make you remember the e-coli outbreak in Europe blamed on sewage yet the little known fact was these crops were also Genetically Modified.)

Australian Soil biologist Dr Christine Jones in a speech to 75 farmers explained serious problems with modern commercial farming. As reported in the Cairns News

“A totally attentive audience was told soil nutrients were so low in many commercial cropping and grazing areas that consumers would need to eat twice as much red meat and three times more fruit to gain the same nutrients of 50 years ago.” http://cairnsnews.wordpress.com/2014/04/07/soil-experts-warn-conventional-farming-is-on-borrowed-time/

Again we see another possible explanation to obesity and need to “overeat” which well may not be the case at all.

In December 2004 Donald Davis and researchers from the University of Texas at Austin’s Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition that they found by assessing 43 fruit and vegetables between 1950 and 1999 declines in protein, calcium, phosphorus, iron, riboflavin (vitamin B2) and vitamin C.

“A Kushi Institute analysis of nutrient data from 1975 to 1997 found that average calcium levels in 12 fresh vegetables dropped 27 percent; iron levels 37 percent; vitamin A levels 21 percent, and vitamin C levels 30 percent. A similar study of British nutrient data from 1930 to 1980, published in the British Food Journal,found that in 20 vegetables the average calcium content had declined 19 percent; iron 22 percent; and potassium 14 percent. Yet another study concluded that one would have to eat eight oranges today to derive the same amount of Vitamin A as our grandparents would have gotten from one.” http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/soil-depletion-and-nutrition-loss/

If you have a decline in nutrition in what you eat what do you think happens. People eat more food, and in turn double the food content twice or thrice the calorie intake for less nutritional benefit and thus presto an obesity issue. (So what is the real cost of food?)
(The decline in nutrition is two fold in cause, both the depletion of soils and breeding for productivity and size have outgrown the genes for nutrition, and the time normally in the natural light. It appears that like with everything you don’t get nothing for free, there is always a trade off and maybe we need to realise that we cannot improve on a balanced set of scales. What we had 60 years ago is as large and nutritious as we can get.)It is such health “crisis’s” that now have the people calling out for help. And Government smiles saying “we are there to help.” The solution always hooks you into the system in one way or another.

We run to the government “make it not so”. We pop our synthetic petrochemical vitamins and minerals from the pharmaceuticals only emptying our pockets and making things worse, and as we get sicker we seek remedy with vaccines and medicines also from the pharmaceuticals, which enslave us even further, killing off our immune system and potentially altering DNA even further.

Enter the health, fitness and food guru’s who tell us the secret “wisdom” which was common to our Grandparents and even parents.

It is clear upon examining the United Nations policies on Healthy Cities, Healthy People, Healthy Minds, etc, that there is a pre designed crisis and solution in operation here.

The key aspect mentioned by the “change” proponents down through the last century is to “change habits”. You will come across their quotes in other posts I have made in the past.

Consider Marilyn Ferguson in her 1980’s book The Aquarian Conspiracy,

“The hope for real social transformation need not rest on circumstantial evidence. One major arena, health care, has already begun to experience wrenching change. The impending transformation of medicine is a window to the transformation of all our institutions….
The search for self becomes a search for health, for wholeness….
For many Aquarian Conspirators, an involvement in health care was a major stimulus to transformation.” – Marilyn Ferguson, The Aquarian Conspiracy, 1980.

You don’t search for health and wholeness if you are not sick.
Such habits that were once healthy, have been overcome. For example, back in the 1950’s it was normal behaviour to go to a store with a bag and come back with your shopping without the excess packaging seen today.

Another habit was recycling. Why was this removed only to be reintroduced later?

The old way of doing it was without an ideology behind it.
By removing it they were able to reintroduce it with ideology attached. (Again consider Earth Hour and Clean Up Australia Day, people did try to conserve energy and people did take their rubbish with them. People complain about Christians being preachy, yet fail to recognise these socialised activities preach just the same if not more pervasively.)

Thus by creating a health “crisis”, “sickness” and “obesity”, it has enabled health to be reintroduced now with ideological New World Order social indoctrination baggage.

“But no spiritual aim or energy will ever succeed, or even deserve to succeed, unless it proves able to spread and to keep spreading a fifth column.” pg 146 – 147 Teilhard Letters to Two Friends August 3 1940

If it is spiritual truth, why does it require a fifth column and the cover of secrecy and conspiracy?

If you are unaware of the term “fifth column” it is a term of intrigue and conspiracy where a foreign power positions people in a country who keep crying a mantra, repeating defeatist slogans to discourage the people and even turn them to ideas and ideals that favour the enemy. (Have you noticed any fifth columns in the West. If not you need to read more old books, and see the great spiritual optometrist.)
This has happened in the church with the Word of God just the same.

If you have read my blog on The Generation Gap you may remember head of the British Tavistock Clinic, Brigadier General Rees speaking in 1940 to the National Council on Mental Hygiene called for attendees to be “fifth columnists” and stating that the two most difficult professions to attack would be Law and Medicine.

“Similarly we have made a useful attack upon a number of professions. The two easiest of them naturally are the teaching profession and the Church: the two most difficult are law and medicine. If we are to infiltrate the professional and social activities of other people I think we must imitate the Totalitarians and organize some kind of fifth column activity! Let us all, therefore, very secretly be “fifth columnists” Mental Health October 1940 Vol 1 No 4 pg 103 – 106, Strategic planning for mental health by Col J R Rees

As we can see significant in roads have been made into medicine and law.

In what many term “The Cookbook on Humans”, “Human Relations in Curriculum Change” a damning first hand account of how we have been manipulated from cradle to grave.

We find written in Chapter 10 “Utilization of Dissatisfaction” an open declaration of this very fact

“Men do not change their social arrangements so long as they are perfectly satisfied with them. Dissatisfaction with existing conditions seems to be a prerequisite for intentional change… At various times and in relation to various problems different individuals and groups may be arranged on a scale stretching all the way from a tendency to be controlled by tradition, habit, inertia, social pressure, fear of and hostility to innovation to a tendency to become bored and discontented with the old and curious about innovation… In the case of the more apathetic persona, much new information and many new experiences will be necessary if they are to become actively dissatisfied. It will be a matter largely of converting a vague sense of discomfort and unrest into strong convictions that certain specific ills should be attacked… “Every man has his interests, at those points his attention can be enlisted”… Various means may be employed to carry on the study here advocated as a basis for planning experiences that will awaken and mobilize individuals.” pg 59-63 Human Relations in Curriculum Change (From Alice Miel, Changing the Curriculum, App1eton-Century-Crofts, Inc., 1946, pp. 40-47)

Will planned experiences like The Color RunTM awake and mobilize individuals? And in what direction? What dissatisfactions does it resolve?

One heading in this chapter reads “Methods of Arousing Dissatisfaction”.
Now maybe you can understand just a little why everything is run so badly and why, in relation to this matter, our health is deteriorating so rapidly and so widely and why food and water and even air are central to it.
Crisis and Dissatisfaction are tools in the arsenal of social change and this is a means of changing you.

These are the same methods used in Advertising. To create a need and generate discontent.
We are no longer viewed as God’s special creation but rather a resource that is only worth anything if it can be changed and manipulated into any form required by the authorities for an end product or outcome.

1 Timothy 6:5-8 speaks explicitly against the creation of discontent saying,

“Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.  6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.  7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.  8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.”

The Greek for “content” is avrke,w arkeo. meaning satisfaction2 as opposed famously in the lyrics of the Rolling Stones “I can’t get no satisfaction” or as the active form avrkei/ , sufficiency constituting “my grace is sufficient for you” 2 Corinthians 12:9.
Multiples of generations through the 20th and 21st century have been educated in pursing the things that do not provide satisfaction, all with intent and purpose. All by design.
Capitalism is the celebration of covetousness.

But why encourage dissatisfaction?

Because avrke,w arkeo delineates towards this understanding that,

“to be possessed of unfailing strength; to be strong, to suffice, to be enough (as against any danger; hence, to defend, ward off…” Thayers Greek Lexicon.

We have been deceived into abdicating the ideal of sufficiency of Christ in all things. In our food, jobs, marriage, children, wealth, possessions, and too many numerous items to list here.
If we would be stable, at peace with what we have been given by God, understanding that we have what we have by His hand and not by our own hand, we would fetter ourselves to our responsibilities and encourage our wives or husbands, and teach our children and establish a defence for our homes and minds and faith merely by being satisfied.

Satisfaction – A defence against adultery.
Satisfaction – A defence against idolatry.
Satisfaction – A defence against debt.
Satisfaction – A defence against envy, jealousy, hatred, murder, theft, unthankfulness and you can complete the list yourself.

It is our abdication of satisfaction that has enabled all manner of temptations to come to us all and destroy our homes, lives, churches and nations. Satisfaction is key in rebuilding a defensive wall.

Thus another way to understand the methods of Arousing Dissatisfaction is that they are methods of getting you to drop your guard, lower your defences.
Cultural Marxism is about creating a culture of pessimism.

Simplicity in Christ is STRENGTH in WEAKNESS as 2 Corinthians 12:9-10  informs us

“And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.  10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.”

These methods of dissatisfaction have been used to entice women out of the home from raising and teaching the children, telling women “your a slave to your husband, you need a career.” resulting in the pursuit of possessions, wealth over and above what a modest family needs. With many Christian’s forgetting Hebrews 13:4-6

“Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.   Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.  6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.”

Many other means and ways have been utilised like the ideal of keeping up with the “Jones’”, or the exploitation of “charity” as a sedative to ones wealth burdened conscience.

So then using this angle we can notice the angle taken here

“Through the partnership [between the Color RunTM and Global Poverty Project], Color Runners can register on GPP’s Global Citizen platform where they earn points for taking online actions and use those points for a chance to win tickets to concerts in the area, including the 2013 Global Citizen Festival headlined by Stevie Wonder, Kings of Leon, Alicia Keys and John Mayer in Central Park, NYC.” Sunshine Sachs press release http://www.buffalo.com/sports/blog/heres-why-i-avoid-the-color-run-opinion/51062

Notice the adoption of a simple activity such as running and how ideological Globalist baggage is attached and made easy to swallow by enticing the wants of the individual.
The New World Order is being marketed, and everyone is buying.

Yet the Color RunTM also goes further than just a socio-political engineering mechanism in the big machine. It appears it has a grander purpose in connecting spirituality to it.

Consider the statement by Travis Snyder Founder and CEO of the Color Run who states

“It was clear from the beginning that The Color Run had hidden magic,” said The Color Run Founder and CEO Travis Snyder newsle.com/person/travissnyder/18909139

Another inference to spirituality comes from Travis Snyder and Color RunTM organisers who say in their media release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – August 7, 2013

The Color Run™ debuts in London
The “Happiest 5k on the Planet” plans for thousands this month…

The Color Run is all about having fun and healthy living, while giving back to local charities,” said Travis Snyder, founder of The Color Run. “The event brings the community together and creates energy so positive it’s contagious. Our mantra is ‘Be Happy. Be Healthy. Be You’.http://blogs.canoe.ca/keepingfit/tag/health/page/3/

Notice they provide the pre-constructed design to cultural pessimism which was created.

“Happy” is a catch cry of the Hare Krishna’s. Founder of the Hare Krishna’s A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada wrote a book “Chant and Be Happy”.

Chant and be Happy“Gauranga is a term popularized by the Hare Krishna movement in the 1970s. It is derived from Sanskrit gaurāṅga (Devanagari गौराङ्ग) “having a white or yellowish body“, a bahuvrihi compound from gaurawhite, yellowish, reddish” and aṅga “limb, member; the body.

Gaurāṅga is a name of Krishna in Puranic literature, and in Gaudiya Vaishnavism in particular a name of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu (considered an incarnation of Krishna.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gauranga

The Bible does not speak about happiness but rather joy. A very different thing.

It is also clear from this that the emphasis is upon the 3 “Be’s”. This is very critical if you read my blog on The Generation Gap which goes into this.
This is veiled spirituality that is given away by the eastern term Mantra.
If you read my up and coming Blog on Yoga coming soon you will also see that Hinduism has had a clear planned objective to destroy Christianity and evangelise the West for the last 130 years.

I say this because of the continued connections between spirituality and The Color RunTM will be come ever more clear especially where they admit to being influenced by a Hindu Festival called Holi.

Let’s look at this Hindu festival which we will bring us back to The Color RunTM.

HOLIKA

In India and other large populations of Hindus around the world, a festival is celebrated called Holika. This festival occurs based upon the full moon in the month of March. In fact it seems incredibly similar to that other celebration called Easter and the colourful eggs that can be traditional in some cultures, the Easter Bonnet or the new clothes.

Wheel of the Year

In fact it is completely related to the whole pagan structure of what is called the Wheel of the Year or the Wheel of Fire where Easter, Christmas, Halloween, St Valentines Day, etc are celebrated.

As Wikipedia says on this

“The festival signifies the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, end of winter, and for many a festive day to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive, and repair ruptured relationships.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holi

Here again we see the same celebration of Easter, or as outlined in a my blog regarding “Sticking out the Tongue” on Maori tradition of Hine-takurua.

The National Geographic states the same

“Today, Holi is seen as a bridge between social gaps within Hindu culture. Men and women celebrate together, rich and poor throw colors at each other, and the young splatter the old.

It’s not uncommon for pictures of ministers and government officials celebrating the holiday to surface.

“Holi is meant to bring people together in joyful celebration,” Shah said. “Its playful nature tends to loosen some barriers in society.”  Published April 1, 2013 http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2013/04/pictures/130401-india-holi-krishna-vishnu-holiday-religion-culture/

Loosening barriers in society is not always a good thing. In our current climate we have barriers being loosed in the arena of sexuality and sexual “orientation”.
The Color RunTM subtly reinforcing this changing cultural milieu being used as means to loosen barriers between morals and religions.

In fact this sounds very similar to the Roman Festival of the Saturnalia and where the lord of misrule would replace the ruler for 7 days within the Barbaric tradition of the Franks.
As we can see here standard manners of respect are torn down in “fun” and “jest”.

Rainbow Flag

The usage of the colours of the rainbow in recent times has become the flag for Gay Pride (Homosexuality). Thus this “colourful” event could be easily taken as a spiritual or social agreement with what lies behind that modern usage of that symbol , whilst being promoted as “family friendly” because “family” can be interpreted so many different ways today.
Regardless of this we will discover the importance of the modern usurpation of the “colours of the rainbow” soon enough.

In The Color RunTM 4 colours are thrown Pink, Orange, Blue and Yellow.

The meaning of these colours may have no significance to us Westerners but at the very least in Hindu culture they can mean very different things, and as such you could be participating in at least a spiritual initiation or baptism in colour (a serious issue you will discover at the end of this article on which I elaborate in great detail) or action that can begin you on a path you never intended to walk on.

Frog in PotThis immersion may appear innocent on the surface, but the bathing needs be in warmth first before you are made to revel in the harsh flames of the lusts of the eternal souls of the damned.

Secondly as the National Geographic mentioned, the Hindu Festival of Holi bridges barriers and central to it is the “throwing of colours”.

Well this second fact become pertinent in the scheme of things taking place in the world right now.

Holika Dahan / Holi being called the Festival of Colours is not just a throwing of colours at each other and having a “good time”! If it was then there really would be no problem. The issue though for a Christian is that it is not that clear cut.

In the typical fashion of the shallow Westerner you are lead to believe that is what Holi is about, and expected to believe what you are told and leave it at that. Yet the answer is a clear NO. Like most things in mans culture it is rarely the first appearance that gives us the right understanding.

You may be asking that just because there is a similarity regarding the throwing of colours in both events that doesn’t mean they are celebrating Holi.

Don’t be misled

“The Holi rituals and customs outside South Asia also vary with local adaptations.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holi

Again as I have said in other places, the whole means of deception is to break down a belief system into it’s smallest component parts so the belief system from which they derived are not recognised, with the view to reincorporating them at some future time.

This is what has occurred with evolution, which is a component part of Hindu Cosmology for example. Other examples of belief systems being broken down to enable them to be swallowed more easily is witchcraft, and the breaking of it into small component parts like, astrology, scrying, clairvoyance, necromancy, psychic healing, telepathy, astral travel, auras, colour therapy, etc.

Though you may not buy in to most of those, there is a good chance you will buy into one finding a niche inside you that you find attractive or apparently “scientific”.

Now Holika or Holi is the name of a demoness that was killed. This is what the festival celebrates. Yet is far more involved than that.

This year, 2014, the festival occurred on the 17th March.

“The Holi festival commemorates the victory of good over evil, brought about by the burning and destruction of the demoness named Holika. This was enabled through unwavering devotion to the Hindu god of preservation, Lord Vishnu.” http://goindia.about.com/od/festivalsevents/p/Holi.htm

Holi then is not just about celebrating the triumph over some demoness, but celebrating and praising another god called Vishnu who triumphed over the demoness.
Something the Bible is very clear about in the First Commandment in Exodus 20:3

“Thou shalt have no other gods before me.”

This “before me” of course means “before my face”.

This North Indian Dravidian Festival of Holi is called Shimga in Southern India and the parallels with the Saturnalia or Christmas is remarkable.

On the night before Holika they have a Holika Bon Fire,

“…the primary intention of which is apparently by a sort of sympathetic magic to ensure a due supply of sunshine for the crops (Frazer, GB2 iii. 313 ff.)” pg 19 Encyclopaedia of Religion and Ethics Volume 5

This is not unlike the Saturnalia of Rome and what Israel celebrated under the names of Baal and the Grove (The Ashteroth).
The worship around Christmas and Easter is all about food and good harvest instead of trusting upon God for our needs.

Other celebrations during Holi are where a  “pit is dug” with “a wooden stake thrust into it, and lighted” food eaten that night is “bread”, “rice”, “cock” with some “thrown into the fire” combined with “drinking and dancing till dawn”. Some clans celebrate it with small variations. The “Kuman… clan erects a tree covered with rags” close to the tree a fire is litMadonna Burning Cross and the tree burned. There is a “contest between clans” to get a “shred of cloth from the tree of another clan.”

“When the tree is consumed the people leap over the ashes,… two phallic figures are constructed. One, made of wood, is preserved from year to year; the other, of bricks, after the fire is lighted is broken to pieces with blows of shoes and bludgeons. The wooden figure is placed beside the wedding couch as a fertility charm (NINQ iii. 92 f.). A similar rite is the Khatarhuva of Kumaun, when a fire of dry grass and weeds is burned round a pole. Obscene songs are sung, and the purport of one is that the cattle are now safe from demons (ib. iii. 135).”

Among the Dravidian Biyars, again, a stake of the sacred cotton tree is driven into the ground, and a time is fixed for the Burning
of the Old Year. The fire is lit by the village baiga, and the people after parching ears of barley at it eat them. They sprinkle the ashes about, and with them mark their foreheads (Crooke, Tribes and Castes, ii. 137). An important part of these rites is the leaping over the fire and the driving of the cattle through it… (GB2 iii. 312)” pg 19 Encyclopaedia of Religion and Ethics Volume 5

Not unlike Roman Catholicism and marking the forehead with a cross on Ash Wednesday.

Ash Wednesday Mark Forehead

This is in complete alignment with the traditions of the Saturnalia and the European traditions of the barbarian hordes.

Also the “wooden figure placed beside the couch” also smacks of kissing under the mistletoe.

Burning the tree is the same practice founded by the Assyrians and the modern display by the Ku Klux Klan of burning a cross, or the “leaping” tradition of leaping over the Bon Fire which is an etymologically variant form of the Baal Fire.

One such recent event ended tragically yet not completely out of tradition as sacrifice was not unusual at these events.
http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/man-dies-leaping-bonfire-burning-man-stye-festival-utah-desert-article-1.1865848

Another example of which there are copious is tradition of driving cattle through the fire, as found in Germany where we are told that

Bon Fire“Down at least to the middle of the nineteenth century the midsummer fires used to blaze all over Upper Bavaria. They were kindled especially on the mountains, but also far and wide in the lowlands, and we are told that in the darkness and stillness of night the moving groups, lit up by the flickering glow of the flames, presented an impressive spectacle. Cattle were driven through the fire to cure the sick animals and to guard such as were sound against plague and harm of every kind throughout the year.” Chapter 5 The Midsummer Fires, The Golden Bough by Sir James George Frazer

This is a practice found right across the world

“… instances from antiquity are corroborated by modern practices as found among savages and even civilized peoples, and are illustrated also by the usage of European rustics in leaping over fires as a ceremony.” pg 30 Encyclopaedia of Religion and Ethics Volume 6

Scripture is very emphatic regarding this practise stating in  Leviticus 18:21

“And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD.”

And though this “passing through the fire” infers sacrificing in fire, this indelibly altered to less destructive forms but remained no less linked to Sun worship.

It is mentioned numerous times including Deuteronomy 18:10-12  where it is associated with other practises and is called an “abomination” in the following

“There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,  11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.  12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.”

It is found that even though all rituals are not practised on the same day in all cultures and religions, it is found that you will find virtually all practices throughout the year are found at some other time in the year in other cultures and religions because they all derive from the same source.

“In the same way the rites of the Holi festival are accompanied by indecency of word and gesture, the singing of ribald songs, and the flinging of filth or coloured water on passers-by. Such orgies are commonly associated with the rites of the spring festival or the garnering of the crops.” (Frazer, GB2 iii. 118 f., 138). pg 20 Encyclopaedia of Religion and Ethics Volume 5.

The indecency is not from times passed either.
This warning for travellers is made clear for women in particular

“Holi Safety Information:

Single women should avoid going out alone in public places during Holi, as inebriated young Indian males often pose a safety threat. These males, who have consumed excessive amounts of bhang and other intoxicants, will inappropriately touch women and make a nuisance of themselves. They are usually in groups and can be very aggressive. Incidents of rape also do occur, which makes it important to take proper care during Holi.

If you plan on going out into the streets on Holi, do so early in the morning. Be back in your hotel by midday before the men get too inebriated.” http://goindia.about.com/od/festivalsevents/p/Holi.htm

Bhang is a paste made from Cannabis.
A nice holi time not unlike the Christmas Business party. Deck the Halls with bows of Holi, oops holly.
This is also like the traditions of the Christmas festival a little over 150 years ago.

In the tradition of the Wassailing bowl, in the US, rabble rousers paid “sincere devotion to merry Bacchus” pg 50. Also called Mummers or … would aggressively storm into houses, perform for the owners subjecting the women and children to ribald song and language and demand a gift. pg 51-53 as detailed well by The Battle for Christmas by Stephen Nissenbaum also explaining that

”By 1820 Christmas misrule had become such an acute social threat that respectable New Yorkers could no longer ignore it or take it lightly… In 1828 there occurred an extensive and especially violent callithumpian parade… the band pelted the tavern with lime… marched to Broadway… then to a black neighbourhood stopping at a church… ‘demolished all the windows, broke the doors… seats’ and beat with sticks and ropes the African – American congregants who were holding a watch service, next the band headed to the city’s main commercial district, where they smashed crates and barrels and looted…”pg 54 The Battle for Christmas by Stephen Nissenbaum

The commentary goes on but you get the picture.

We are told further about the slaves that

“It seems clear that the constant drinking and dancing – it often lasted through the night – led to intensified sexual activity.“More than one visitor explicitly described the slave Christmas as a modern version of the old Roman Saturnalia. John Pierpont [of Boston] noted that it ‘might more than compare with the bacchanal feats and amusements of antiquity’”  “All society seems resolved into chaos”pg 267
“Christmas misrule entailed more than leisure and “liberty”. It also meant a symbolic turning of the tables between masters and slaves.” pg 270 The Battle for Christmas by Stephen Nissenbaum

This was how Christmas was celebrated in Europe, England and around the world. Of course today it has undergone a “cleansing” to make it acceptable not unlike the cleansing of Holika of certain characteristics to make Westerners swallow it. It has only been a recent development where Christmas has become accepted and celebrated in the US and other protestant countries.
We also see the contrast of turning the tables and breaking down of barriers in the way Christmas was celebrated in the Holika festival.

Again “the customs of the people are vain” Jeremiah 10:3 and we find them duplicated globally at different times and formats but the basis of their origin is the same.

Now the colours used in the Holika Festival are not without purpose or meaning either. It is not just for being “colourful”.

“For the Hindu, colors play a very important role in the religion and culture and have a very deep significance, transcending purely decorative values. Hindu artists use color on the deities and their dresses signifying their qualities. Proper use of colors creates an environment, which should keep a person cheerful.” http://hinduism.about.com/b/a/2004_03_20.htm

It is specifically about the Hindu deities themselves which the colours are in reference to in Indian Culture.

“The practice of throwing color on other people’s faces comes from Krishna, who was thought traditionally to have been jealous when he was young of Radha’s fair complexion. He put color on Radha’s face out of mischief, and this tradition has been practiced ever since.” http://www.examiner.com/article/holi-the-hindu-festival-of-colors

Blue Krishna

Writer Nadya Agrawal of an article “Dye-ing Culture: Color Run, White Washing Holi Since 2012” claims that The Color Run has co-opted Holi. http://www.browngirlmagazine.com/2013/04/color-run-controversy/

She is absolutely correct but the co-opting of Holi by The Color RunTM is not a secret by a long shot.

There are similarities between The Color RunTM and the Holi Festival

Here we read an excerpt from The Color RunTM website

“How strict is the “white clothing dress code” for the start of the event?

We will have white clothing police inspectors located throughout the event. You will be arrested and put in The Color Run™ jail if more than 11.8% of your person is a hue other than white.

Were you kidding about the question above?

Yes we were. As long as runners wear shirts that are mostly white, you are totally good. They can include team logos and any other image you see fit. To the point… It is really just more fun to “Color Run” starting in white and ending well…. COLOURIFFIC!” http://thecolorrun.com.au/faq/

How much of a joke is left for speculation when we find the same expectations as in the Holika Festival. Again The Color Run makes wearing white the one important factor.

“We call The Color Run the ‘happiest 5K on the planet’ because our events bring together friends and family in a unique, healthy, and fun environment,” said Travis Snyder, founder of The Color Run. “Our only rules are that people wear white and prepare to be covered in color at the finish!”  http://metamorfit.org/?tag=/clearwater

A parallel festival called “Holi One” (clearly a play on Holy One) states

“What should I wear to the festival?

You will not leave the festival looking the same as you arrived. Festival goers should wear white and leave colourful! Hats and sunscreen are advised for protection from the sun as the event is completely outdoors. Comfortable shoes/sandals and clothes you don’t mind getting full of colourful powder are recommended. Safety goggles/glasses can also be worn to protect the eyes, especially for people who wear contact lenses. “  http://www.holione.com/en/events/brisbane.html

Holi One Festival Sydney Australia

Here the similarity is quite in your face. The importance of participants who “should” or “mostly” wear white for the purpose of coming out with “colourful powder” or  looking “Colouriffic”.

Well what becomes interesting in all this is upon examining the Hindu usage of white, the meaning begins to make sense when we discover that

“… brides often wear white in the West to symbolize purity, but in India, Hindu widows wear the color to represent mourning.” http://people.opposingviews.com/colors-hinduism-religion-4709.html

Another informative site on Hinduism tells us the same but with some more pertinent detail

“White is a mixture of seven different colours hence it symbolizes a little bit of the quality of each. It represents purity, cleanliness, peace and knowledge. The goddess of knowledge, Saraswati is always shown as wearing a white dress, sitting on a white lotus. The Brahmin is associated with white. Hindu religious leaders cover themselves with white ashes to represent their spiritual rebirth. White is also the colour of mourning. The other prominent deities would also have a touch of white on their dress.” http://www.sanskritimagazine.com/indian-religions/hinduism/meaning-of-different-colours-in-hinduism/

(White is not a mixture of 7 different colours! Different colours can be separated from light by a prism and refocused back as light through another prism but 7 different colours mixed together do not produce white instead they produce black. It shows that regardless of mans efforts they cannot return to white or light. This can only be an act of God.)

The Pirate FairyThe Disney movie “The Pirate Fairy” gives good indication regarding colours and qualities in the use and generation of pixie dust and its relation to seasonal variations and certainly teaches children this.

Blue Pixie Dust can generate other variations.

Orange pixie dust makes one have the talent for bending light.
Purple Pixie dust makes one have the talent for controlling the wind.
Pink Pixie Dust makes on have the talent for growing plants.
Blue controls water, White make one a fast flyer,  other colours make one an animal fairy and a tinker.

This whole Color RunTM event is promoted as “the happiest 5k on the planet”.
It starts with the Hindu colour used for mourning, and ends with vibrant colourful meaning of the proverbial elusive idea of happiness.
What is more is that it represents spiritual rebirth being covered in white, whilst after getting (baptised) in 4 colours, you come out with only a little bit of white showing just like “… other prominent deities… ”. Is that what is meant by the The Color Run’sTM joke “You will be arrested and put in The Color Run™ jail if more than 11.8% of your person is a hue other than white.”

They seem determined that you start mostly in white and end with only a little bit of white.

Am I going to far?

Considering there is a spiritual connection to this Hindu “festival of colours” we should most certainly take seriously the implications of “what if this is the case?”. The evidence does suggest something more than meets the eye.

The colours chosen being Pink, Yellow, Orange and Blue signify different “qualities” as previously emphasised in a previous quote from a site on Hinduism, a most interesting use of the term for colours also used by Sanskritimagazine.com, as this is the same term used by Occultist Alice Bailey

“One of the things which we shall seek to do in our studies together is to grasp the relation of the world of meaning to the world of expression; we shall attempt to study the technique whereby this world of quality (which expresses itself through the world of meaning) can be entered and understood by the integrated consciousness of the intelligent human being.” pg 15 Education in the New Age by Alice Bailey

So if these colours represent “qualities” then this Color RunTM is a Biji, Bija or Thoughtform through which the coming New Order can pour in it’s “world of meaning”.

Alice Bailey explains more in another of her books claiming

“… we are dealing with life-expression, through the medium of matter-form… Many these days like to talk and think in terms of that One Life, but it remains but speech and thought [not doing aka requiring a “Purpose Driven Life”] …. Life cannot be expressed in words nor can its realised perfection. The process of “becoming,” which leads to “being,” is a cosmic event, involving all forms, and no son of God lies separated from that mutable process as yet.” pg 14 Esoteric Psychology A Treatise on the Seven Rays Vol 1 by Alice Bailey

Another words if you choose to separate from their socialised activities that lead you into “becoming”, the New Age will consider you to not be a son of God. This will eventually chalk you up for “retirement” from this world and from your “form” aka body as mentioned by Barbara Marx Hubbard writing from her spirit guides,

“We come to bring death to those who are unable to know God… The riders of the pale horse are about to pass among you. Grim reapers, they will separate the wheat from the chaff. This is the most painful period in the history of humanity.’ pg 321 False Dawn from pg 60-61 Barbara Marx Hubbard Co-Creation: An Evolutionary Interpretation of the New Testament

Jesus is the preacher of separation saying in John 14:6

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

Jesus the Christ / Messiah is exclusive not inclusive, that is separate and the word Holy also means separate. So inclusiveness is code for unholy.

Alice Bailey expresses the following regarding this

“… those who embody the spirit of exclusiveness and separateness will stand automatically and equally revealed and all men will know them for what they are… To hate, to be separate, and to be exclusive will come to be regarded as the only sin, for it will be recognised that all the sins—as listed and now regarded as wrong—only stem from hate or from its product, the anti-social consciousness. Hate and its dependent consequences are the true sin against the Holy Ghost  pg 48 – 49 The Reappearance of the Christ by Alice Bailey

Alice Bailey here tries to equate, separateness and exclusivity as what is commonly termed “the unpardonable sin” found in Matthew 12:31

“Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.”

Yet ironically their hatred of those “recognised” as exclusive and separate is in perfect harmony with their ideals and values. Death to the Holy Ones.

The kingdom of antichrist must try every ploy to get you involved in the process of initiation.

Yet Alice Bailey doesn’t know the Holy Spirit from her sacral chakra, since the passage clearly shows that this sin is one that involves attributing the works and deeds of the Holy Spirit to the Lord of the Dung Hill (Beelzebub aka Satan).

She continues elsewhere

“… this sense of separateness, this emphasis upon personal and individual good, which is of the nature of sin. Love [eros or philos not agape] is unity, at-one-ment and synthesis. Separateness is hatred, aloneness and division.” pg 104 From Bethlehem to Calvery by Alice Bailey,

As you can now envisage, hate crime will eventually incorporate not accepting that which your conscience says is wrong. It will incorporate not being involved in community and social activity that you see as wrong.

As John 16:2-3 warns us so aptly

“They shall put you out of the synagogues [churches, places of worship etc]: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.  3 And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.”

What has gone before will happen again.

This “inclusiveness” and “social-consciousness” (which is what my Blog on the Generation Gap deals with) is what Alice Bailey calls “right human relations”.

Let me quote from David Spangler who puts this into devilish perspective.

David Spangler’s website states that he has worked since 1965

“… clairvoyantly with a group of non-physical beings from the inner world of spirits”. http://www.davidspangler.com/

David Spangler is on the Board of Directors of Planetary Citizens, United Nations and has authored numerous New Age books. One book “The Birth of a New Age” written in 1977 calls for a “… Luciferic Initiation in the New Age.” where no one will be able to enter the New Age without it.

He repeats such sentiments in his book Reflections On Christ

“Lucifer comes to give us the final … Luciferic initiation … that many people now and in the days ahead, will be facing—for it is an initiation into the New Age. … No one will enter the New World Order unless he or she will make a pledge to worship Lucifer. No one will enter the New Age unless he will take a Luciferian initiation.”

He also states

“Lucifer works within each of us to bring us to wholeness, and as we move into a New Age… each of us in some way is brought to that point which I term the Luciferic Initiation, the particular doorway through which the individual must pass if he is to come fully into the presence of his light and wholeness. Lucifer prepares man in all his ways for the experience of Christhood… The light that reveals to us the presence of the Christ… comes from Lucifer. He is the light-giver, he is aptly named the Morning Star because it is his light that heralds for man the dawn of a great consciousness… He stands… as the Great Initiator, the one who hands the soul over to the Christ.”

Not unlike Alice Bailey again stating

“I shall use the word quality as expressive of the second aspect, the Son of God, the cosmic Christ incarnate in form—a form [or thought-form] brought into being by the relation of spirit and matter. This interplay produces that psychological Entity which we call the Christ. This cosmic Christ…  This psychological Entity can bring into functioning activity a quality within all human forms…” pg 15 Esoteric Psychology A Treatise on the Seven Rays Vol 1 by Alice Bailey

The Word of God says something you should pay special attention to in 2 Corinthians 11:14-15

“And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.”

And also warns us in 2 Corinthians 11:3-4

“But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.  4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.”

As Alice Bailey was speaking of earlier, Spirit (another spirit) and matter interact through the faculty of mind or thought. She is speaking of here that the usage of “quality” is a vehicle to introduce the expression not just of the Son of God (another Jesus) but all “hu-manity” into becoming collectively and or individually Sons of God (another gospel). This is the same as David Spangler speaking of how “Lucifer prepares man in all his ways for the experience of Christhood”. This is the same language.

Now speaking of this light and the associated colours we are told

“These rays are in constant movement and circulation, and demonstrate an activity which is progressive and cyclic and evidences increasing momentum. They are dominant at one time and quiescent at another, and according to the particular ray which is making its presence felt at any particular time, so will be the quality of the civilisation, the type of forms which will make their appearance in the kingdoms of nature, and the consequent stage of awareness (the state of consciousness) of the human beings who are carried into form life in that particular era.
These embodied lives (again in all four kingdoms) will be responsive to the peculiar vibration, quality, colouring and nature of the ray in question. The ray in manifestation will affect potently the three bodies which constitute the personality of man, and the influence of the ray will produce changes in the mind content and the emotional nature of the man and determine the calibre of the physical body.” pg 8-9 Esoteric Psychology A Treatise on the Seven Rays Vol 1

“… the endless diversity of forms hides a subjective synthesis. Man can therefore eventually see, expressing itself through all forms in all kingdoms, a universal septenate, and when this happens, he is then entering into the world of subjective unity, and can proceed on his way consciously towards the
One
.” pg 21  Esoteric Psychology A Treatise on the Seven Rays Vol 1

The four kingdoms she speaks of are

Humanity 4th Kingdom 5th Ray Concrete Knowledge
Animal 3rd Kingdom 6th Ray Devotion upwards or forwards
Vegetable 2nd Kingdom 4th Ray Harmony and Beauty
Mineral 1st Kingdom 7th Ray Organisation and Ritual

pg 68 Esoteric Psychology A Treatise on the Seven Rays Vol 1

This I believe is why there is such a plethora of usage of 4 colours in critical logos and such, it is referencing these 4 kingdoms.

This is mind blowingly deceptive. I wish you to prayerfully to consider the following (because we are dealing with a devil speaking through this woman Alice Bailey) and many others,

“This, on a tiny scale, is true of the centres in the etheric body of the disciple; they too evidence the same dual activity, once the Path of Discipleship is trodden and the Path of Initiation is entered. The zodiacal wheel is itself essentially a cosmic centre; it is a twelve-petalled lotus, but it is a twelve petalled lotus within the thousand-petalled lotus of an unknown cosmic Entity, the One referred to in my earlier books as the ONE ABOUT WHOM NAUGHT MAY BE SAID. [Anyone versed in Harry Potter would immediately recognise J. K. Rowlings rendition as ”He who must not be named” also see Acts 17:23]
The multiplicity of zodiacal influences have eventually a dual effect: one upon Shamballa (the planetary head centre) and the other upon the Hierarchy (the planetary heart centre); the effect is also felt in the head centre and the heart centre of every initiate. This final dual activity is registered by the initiate of the highest degrees when he undergoes the eighth and ninth initiations; the other seven initiations are governed by the seven rays.

You have, therefore:

Initiation 1. Birth
Sacral centre 7th Ray Physical plane
Beginnings Relationship Sex Magic
Initiation 2. Baptism
Solar Plexus centre, 6th Ray, Astral Plane
Dedication, Glamour, Devotion
Initiation 3. Transfiguration
Ajna centre, 5th Ray, Mental Plane
Integration, Direction, Science
Initiation 4. Renuncication
Heart centre, 4th Ray, Buddhic Plane
Crucifixion, Sacrifice, Harmony
Initiation 5. Revelation
Base of Spine, 1st Ray, Atmic Plane
Emergence, Will, Purpose
Initiation 6. Decision
Throat Centre, 3rd Ray. Monadic Plane
Fixation, Intelligent Co-operation, Creativity
Initiation 7. Resurrection
Head Centre 2nd Ray, Logoic Plane
The Eternal Pilgrim, Love-Wisdom, Attraction
Initiation 8. Transition
Hierarchy, 4 Minor Rays [4,5,6,7], Planetary
Choice, Consciousness, Sensitivity
Initiation 9. Refusal
Shamballa, Three Major Rays [1,2,3], Systemic
Seven Paths, Being, Existence

It will not be possible for you to comprehend the synthesis which governs the four final initiations, and for these experiences we have as yet no adequate language. All that is possible is to indicate certain spiritual trends and tendencies and—as this section is written primarily for those who have taken or who are preparing to take one or other of the initiations—I can only hope that some meaning will be conveyed to those persons who are ready.” pg 177 – 178, The Rays and Initiations – A treatise on the Seven Rays Volume 5 by Alice Bailey

Initiation is of the greatest import here in this matter as both Bailey and Spangler have shown.

The colours of these rays are described below by Alice Bailey stating

“Every unit of the human race is on some one of the seven rays; therefore some one colour predominates, and some one tone sounds forth; infinite are the gradations and many the shades of colour and tone. Each ray has its subsidiary rays which it dominates, acting as the synthetic ray. These seven rays are linked with the colours of the spectrum. There are the rays of red, blue, yellow, orange, green and violet. There is the ray that synthesises them all, that of indigo. There are the three major rays—red, blue and yellow—and the four subsidiary colours…[aka: orange, green, violet, indigo]” pg 71 Esoteric Psychology A Treatise on the Seven Rays Vol 1

The major rays are

1st Ray – Red (Pink comes under the domination of Red but is synthetic as my understanding goes.  But as Alice Bailey explained “It will not be possible for you to comprehend the synthesis which governs the four final initiations”, at least not at the time of her writing at the least. The 1st Ray comes as the 5th Initiation, but interestingly also comes under Purpose, this will make incredible fearful sense once I have altered a letter I wrote to a Church Minister into a blog on Rick Warren and His Purpose Driven Life, as you will see what he is doing and who is working for.)

Notice in the following that colour and tone do go together

“If the amplitude of the sine waves decreases with a curve of about -6 dB per octave when their frequencies rise, the noise sounds much warmer. This is called pink noise.” http://www.samplecraze.com/tutorials/noise-synthesis-white-brown-pink-etc

2nd Ray – Blue (Colour used in Color RunTM)
3rd Ray – Yellow (Colour used n Color RunTM)

The Subsidiary Rays are:

4th Ray – Orange (Colour used in Color RunTM)
5th Ray – Green
6th Ray – Violet

The Synthetic Ray:

7th Ray – Indigo

We can see this self same pattern in a number of arenas as shown below.

imageWindows Logo possesses the 3 Primary rays of Alice Bailey and the 5th Ray (Green). It is also called the Philosophers Square (See my upcoming blog on Bill Gates, Windows and Mysticism) in which, when you remove the appropriate sides becomes what is called the 8th sign of the Philosophers Square. Better known as a swastika. Also I have noticed that they have used a male female principle in the symbol as a cross. The straight vertical line (male) and the wavy wiggly horizontal
line (female).

imageThus now speaking about wiggly, I regretfully mention the long time popular Australian and Internationally successful kids group, The Wiggles, which have the 3 primary rays and the 7th synthesising ray. Interestingly they also have a green dot on the “i” (5th Ray). Dots are also symbolic of male aspect. For example a circle with a dot in it represents the generative principle ie: reproduction. The “l” is wiggly and is the 6th Ray thus this should represent the female.
I have not seen anything on the net regarding this which is surprising. I read an interview with Greg, the Yellow Wiggle about his illness, and he was wearing a jewel encrusted “shin” v round his neck. In this article it was clear he was involved in the Talmud and or Kabbalah.

Of course it would be said the colours are used because kids love colours. Maybe, but remember the words of Alice Bailey I emboldened only a few quotes back regarding “subjective unity”. All these things are subjective. That is how deception operates under the cloud of darkness.

Opal CardWe can also notice the lotus like interleaving of subsidiary colours between the 4 main colours used in Transport NSW Opal Card.

Is there nothing that is not touched by this spiritual corruption? It appears not, as the word of God puts it in 1 John 5:19

“And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.”

George Lucas creator of the Star Wars Saga explains the purpose of his movies.

“… I see Star Wars as taking all of the issues that religion represents and distil them down into a more modern and more easily accessible construct…I put the force into the movies in order to try to awaken a certain kind of spirituality in young people…. I’m telling an old myth in a new way. That’s how you pass down the meat and potatoes of your society to the next generation.” The Mythology of Star Wars

So what does George Lucas have to say about colour?

“Interviewer Bill Moyers – You use colour to suggest some of this philosophy
George Lucus – I use colour a lot in my films I’m very conscious of the design of my films.” – Documentary – The mythology of Star Wars.

Colour may just be pretty to us, but to both the God and Occultists, colour has definite meaning and language. Both though do not infer the same meanings and thus I have not attempted to impose a Biblical interpretation on the occult colours because this would misconstrue their meaning.

What is critical to understand (as I can sympathise with how complex and almost incomprehensible the occult concepts are – that is because all Paganism / Occultism is convoluted like mixing oil and water. It only is semi comprehensible using one philosophy “all is relative” which is madness) is that these initiations planned for are specifically not INDIVIDUAL initiations. Alice Bailey specifies these initiations are SOCIAL or GROUP initiations.

“The concept which has to supersede the one at present extant is that of group initiation, and not that of the initiation of an individual aspirant. In the past, and in order to get the idea of initiation into the minds of the people, the Hierarchy chose the mode (now obsolete) of holding out the prospect of initiation before the earnest disciple; upon this they placed an early emphasis of its peculiarity, its rewarding nature, its ritual and ceremonies, and its place in the scale of evolution. Since the fact of initiation had been grasped by many and achieved by some, it has become possible today to reveal what has always been implied, that initiation is a group event.”

This is why the Church has also adopted group conversions in it’s missionary endeavours. Some other spirit is steering the ship. Pastors roll that one around your head a while, what Piper are you following?

This is why so many Masonic Lodges are closing their doors, being demolished and erecting generic structures for rent and profit. Individualistic initiation is out and mass group initiation is in.

Initiation is going global. Maybe now this might be a catalyst to reconsider that TV, novel, music, computer game and see them as group events?
I hope you are getting the picture. Initiation is has gone public.

If you are getting a handle of what I am showing you here this should be deeply effecting you and will be deeply concerning, especially if you have read my other blogs on this site, as everything relates to everything else, and thus what I hope to place on my site is a growing picture of the whole system and structure of the Psychology of Satan which I also hope I am interspersing for now, refutations from the unfathomable mind of God.

I will be providing greater focus on the mind blowing impossibilities in the Word of God in time, to show God is logical and sane, and Satan is confused and has multiple personality disorder.

As Alice (who seems to be in wonderland) Bailey says “initiation is a group event”. If you do anything the next 6 months, hold that before your eyes and observe this fact being carried out daily before you.

This makes events like the Color RunTM , most likely an event of social initiation and as you will see Baptism is incredibly central to this event. I will discuss that shortly. It is the most damning of evidence.

While working on this, I wrote an email to the organisers of the event in Wollongong, New South Wales, Australia, asking if there was any reason why the event did not coincide with the Hindu festival Holika?

There was no response, NOTHING, silence.
This was my email

To the organisers of the color run

I am surprised that the event in Wollongong was not in sync with a popular Hindu festival called Holi which is on the 1st march or thereabouts as an opportunity to show tolerance and diversity as there is a Hindu temple nearby in Helensburgh.

I would have thought it more appropriate to run the event around that time period or was that calendar slot not available this year?

thanks

Nathan

Hmm maybe a little to upfront.

None the less, no response and yet their website admits to the influence of Holika and as you will see parrots a synonymous festival called Holi One.

Holi One Festival Brisbane Australia

Consider this from Holi One’s FAQ page

“Is the HOLI ONE Colour Festival associated with the original Indian Holi fest?

The HOLI ONE Colour Festival is inspired by the original Indian Holi fest, but is not associated with or related to that festival. It is important to note that the HOLI ONE Colour Festival is not a religious festival or event. It does not aim to promote any religious aspects or groups. Instead the festival is about promoting the ideas of togetherness and the colour of everyday life during a day of fun and exhilaration.”

It is not religious? According to what you have just been shown can this possibly be true?
Why do some atheists complain of Christmas and or Easter at schools or community activity celebrating because it is religious, and how is this any different?
Note well that it did not say “does not aim to promote spiritual ideas.”

These types like to sneak their ideas in through the back door either by direct lies or indirect misdirection.

One prime example is a recent purchase my son made from a school book fair. Books obtained and sold by the school.

This book was one of the many poor excuses for a book since it was called Gems, Treasure Excavation Kit. The only reading was the information booklet.
It was rated “Ages 8+”

I was unaware of the purchase and saw him digging in this hard plaster asking to find out what he was digging getting the reply “gems”.
Picking up the box it looked innocent enough but knowing what I know as soon as I heard gems I became suspect and justifiably so.
One comment on the inside of the box told me my suspicions were correct stating

“Make your own healing gemstone necklace! Balance your body energy everyday! learn about every Gemstone’s healing properties with the Booklet included.” Inside Box flap.

Then I examined the information booklet and it got worse stating

“Most Gemstones are healing stones which interact with our own human aura. Each stone has its own frequency and will affect your aura differently. The following is a list that shows the effects that they have on the body and spirit, according to the teachings of Chakra Healing.” pg 1

Describing one Gemstone it states

“Dumortierite is excellent for opening up communication with your Angels and Spirit Guides.” pg 7 Gems Treasure Excavation Kit Information Guide.

In comes deception through the back door as usual.

There is no difference between this and the subject at hand. You cannot separate the one from the other.

The Holi One festival tries to keep an arms distance from the Hindu Festival. That is a completely ludicrous prospect, yet they have the audacity to try.

The lack of discernment and equally the lack of respect for other religions is shown by the latest servings by Hillsong as we can see in the picture below. Even the guy on the right seems to have a Bindu or some mark on his forehead. Clearly lacking in understanding of what they are representing.

Hillsong United Coloured like Holi

Yet someone does have an understanding or they wouldn’t be doing what they are doing by mistake. Again let’s observe this promotional picture (which is teaching something) in contrast with more words from Alice Bailey.

“The Christian church in its many branches can serve as a St. John the Baptist, as a voice crying in the wilderness, and as a nucleus through which world illumination may be accomplished. I indicate the hope. I do not assert a fact. Its work is intended to be the holding of a broad platform. The church must show a wide tolerance, and teach no revolutionary doctrines or cling to any reactionary ideas. The church as a teaching factor should take the great basic doctrines and (shattering the old forms in which they are expressed and held [the gospel]) show their true and inner spiritual significance [esoteric hidden occult meaning]. The prime work of the church is to teach, and teach ceaselessly, preserving the outer appearance in order to reach the many who are accustomed to church usages. [Intentional deception through a lack of knowledge] Teachers must be trained; Bible knowledge must be spread; the sacraments must be mystically interpreted, and the power of the church to heal must be demonstrated.” pg 271 The Externalization of the Hierarchy.

Notice that the church has been bought off. Infiltrated with leaders whose loyalties lie elsewhere other than in Jesus Christ, instead in “another” Jesus.
Hillsong is “teaching” for “world illumination”. Just examine Brian Houston’s recent comments this year (2014) on Islam,

“Do you know – take it all the way back into the Old Testament and the Muslim and you, we actually serve the same God. Allah to a Muslim, to us Abba Father God.” Brian Houston SERMON: Living for the Master Well http://hillsongchurchwatch.com/2014/03/17/brian-houston-the-muslim-and-you-we-actually-serve-the-same-god/

You can also watch him say it

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=frnSIOhlobQ

(Hillsong has complained that the posting of this video infringes copyright. Yeah right)

You can listen to the audio here

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzDfhVEuiro

Brian Houston, he is fulfilling the words of Alice Bailey.

But this is always the way with an apostate eclectic Christianity that finds a whoring far more advantageous then taking up ones cross. Clearly Hillsong has completely misunderstood Christ’s words regarding dye-ing / dying daily.
Jesus wasn’t meaning to colour yourself literally.

There are a number of Hindu’s though who have expressed unease with the West’s adoption of Indian/Hindu Traditions. I have certainly found this in a blog I have almost completed in Yoga but certainly this extends to other traditions like Holi.

Understandably irked by The Color RunTM, Nadya Agrawal writes

“And at Holi, we don’t simply throw colors in each other’s faces—it’s a place to play with people you love and revel in the vibrancy of spring.  One of our favorite and most colorful holidays is being, pun intended, white-washed.  And it’s like we’ve been completely eradicated from this event as nowhere on the Color Run™ website is there mention of India, Holi, Krishna, or even spring” http://www.browngirlmagazine.com/2013/04/color-run-controversy.

Well it appears there does appear a reference to Holi though “The Color RunTM” does try to keep some distance in the following statement from their FAQ page dated 30th March 2014 (this information was first posted on the site from around 24 April 2013.)

“What is the inspiration behind The Color Run™?
The Color Run 5k is the first paint race of its kind and was inspired by several awesome events, including Disney’s World of Color, Paint Parties, Mud Runs, and Festivals throughout the world such as Holi.  We wanted to create a less stressful and untimed running environment that is more about health and happiness!” http://web.archive.org/web/20140330053800/http://www2.thecolorrun.com/faqs/

Curiously enough as of 27th April 2014 this FAQ page has been removed from their site. If you wish to see it you can go to  http://web.archive.org/web/20140427193112/http://thecolorrun.com/faqs/

The colour run faq removed

Though it seems to have been moved to a new location https://thecolorrun.com/faq/

So both the Holi festival and The Color RunTM use the same language citing the Hindu Holi Festival as “Inspiration” for their event.

Would you listen to music inspired by Aleister Crowley? Would you watch a movie influenced by Gnosticism? Would you read a book influenced by Madam Blavatsky. Would vote for people who have committed treason and keep silent about other acts committed by others?.

In all truth, you probably do all four unknowingly, and thus it is no surprise you would not find any problem with The Color RunTM having an influence from Hinduism as you do so unknowingly, thus I am trying to inform you3.

Surely any half witted individual could see that you cannot have a directly named Holi One festival and claim to only be inspired by that Festival. Both these event organisers, The Color RunTM and Holi One have carefully worded it to not offend those more sensitive to the facts, and at the same time be inclusive by not ostracising the large ground swell of alternative people out there.

Surely practitioners of Transcendental Mediation who bow down and offer food to Hindu gods to receive their mantra, also justify doing so in the same manner as these two events.
Many people go through the TM initiation process uncomfortable with it. But when interviewed they justify their actions by saying they paid good money upfront and they wouldn’t get a refund.
This is the way Maharishi Mahesh Yogi operated and The Color RunTM also operates in the same manner.

Once you have registered you cannot unregister and get a refund.

This is the way the serpent Satan operates, and it is no anomaly that this tactic may just be akin to Satan and Eve’s discussion in the Garden, because

“70 percent of Color Run participants are women ages 18 to 40, officials say.” http://articles.baltimoresun.com/2013-05-09/entertainment/bs-ae-color-run-20130509_1_runner-national-harbor-5k-race/2

This is a humanistic “spiritual” experience you are paying for. Take this accurate comment

“It was awesome,” says Kate Cwiek, a public relations and marketing manager for the Pride of Baltimore who took part in one of two D.C. Color Runs last year. “You’ve got the endorphins going from running. You’ve got the visual stimulation from all the colors. It was the ultimate feel-good experience.” http://articles.baltimoresun.com/2013-05-09/entertainment/bs-ae-color-run-20130509_1_runner-national-harbor-5k-race

In the same article sports psychiatrist David McDuff states

“It does give you a lift, when you run surrounded by others.”

This is about the emancipation or liberation of feel good drugs that the body naturally releases. It is these very addictive habitual drugs, that are being promoted within the community. “Natural” drug addiction (any behaviour that emancipates the dopamine) is acceptable and encouraged in our society.
But any form of drug use precludes one to being more susceptible to manipulation and control. (Aldoux Huxley’s control through pleasure “SOMA”, see his novel brave New World.)

It was this same dose of “pick me up” that I found was driving a Pentecostal Church I attended 20 years ago. The explosion of community activities that people can be involved in week to week is comparative to the explosion of events that people could be involved in at a Church. Morning and Evening “sermons” that were merely motivational messages but nothing of substance, Band practice, Mens and Womens meetings, Youth Meetings, Older Youth Meetings, New Christian Meetings, Concerts, and external events by other churches, on and on.

This is the same method of distraction from what you are going through and forcing change to take place but not change that God brings, this change is artificial and contrived still leaving the individual in their sins.

As Human Relations in Curriculum Change recommends the use of

“… dissatisfaction should not be regarded merely as a factor operating to furnish initial motivation. It should be utilized at all stages of the process to keep crystallization from setting in. Groups should be encouraged to make use of valuable solutions to problems only so long as they serve a useful purpose.” Human Relations in Curriculum Change (pages 58-59, 62-63

You have to keep the people moving, keep them busy, and when the process starts you can’t slow down, in fact to avoid crystallisation (people solidifying in the way they believe or think or behave) it must keep accelerating, endlessly, to produce Karl Marx’s “perpetual revolution”.

That is another purpose of all these social events.

The key point here is this goes right to the heart of initiation of which we can now see such an event like The Color RunTM could very well be an initiation ceremony. That is the foundation upon which the evidence points to this as a social group initiation event.

BAPTISM

Now the key aspect that I really wanted to get to is the issue of Baptism.
Baptism is commonly misunderstood as meaning immersion in water. This though was the Baptism one went through if converting to the faith of Old Testament Israel (I deliberately avoid using Judaism because they are not the same faith.)

The Greek word for Baptise is bapti,zw baptizo.

Which is from ba,ptw Bapto meaning

I. trans. to dip in water, Lat. immergere, Od., Plat.:-of slaughter, evn sfagai/si ba,yasa xi,foj Aesch.; e;bayaj e;gcoj Soph.; fa,sganon ei;sw sarko.j e;bayen Eur.

2. to dip in poison, ivou,j( citw/na Soph.

3. to dip in dye, to dye, Hdt., Aesch.:-Comic, ba,ptein tina. ba,mma Sardianiko,n to dye one in the [red] dye of Sardis, i.e. give him a bloody coxcomb, Ar.

4. to draw water by dipping a vessel, Theocr.; ba,yasa a`lo,j (sc. to. teu/coj) having dipped it so as to draw water from the sea, Eur.

II. intr., nau/j e;bayen the ship dipped, sank, Id.
Liddell-Scott Lexicon

We also go further into the Greek root of Bapto and look at baf we find

bafh
Jgs 5:30; Sir 31:26
dip, dipping (of red-hot iron) Sir 31:26; dye (resulting from soaking clothes in a solution impregnated with a dye) Jgs 5:30
LEH Lexicon

Contrary to popular belief and the misconception is huge, Baptism is not immersion in water, per se. That is the convert baptism to the Old Testament faith.

Jesus stated to the disciples in Matthew 20:22

“But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, We are able.”

Jesus was not asking the disciples if they could be dipped in water. Quite a silly question if that was the case.
He was asking if they would be able to under go the death He is to undergo. A Blood Baptism. Or partaker of a slaughter. To drink of a cup was an idiom meaning to undergo a death (aka poison cup.)

Notice Definition 3 states “to dye in the dye of Sardis

The throwing of the dye as per Holi and the Color RunTM has clear definition as a Baptism from the word of God itself.

But there is more.

When God told Noah in Genesis 6:14

“Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.”

“… to pitch the ark inside and out…”, the Hebrew word used here for pitch was rp;K’ Kaphar.

This is directly related to the idea in Baptizo.

“1) to cover, purge, make an atonement, make reconciliation, cover over with pitch 1a) (Qal) to coat or cover, to smear with pitch.” Bible Works 7

Also shown in

1023.0 rp;k’ (kapar) I, make an atonement, make reconciliation, purge

1024.0 rp;K’ (kapar) II, cover over with pitch. This denominative verb is used only in Gen 6:14 in the waterproofing of the ark. The cognate word is used in the Babylonian flood story.

(1024a) rp,Ko (kœper) II, pitch. A noun, from which the above verb was doubtless derived. Pitch, bitumen, asphalt was used in early antiquity as an adhesive to hold inlays into statues. It was a logical material for caulking the ark as specified both in the Bible and the Babylonian flood story. R.L.H. TWOT Lexicon

The pitch was made from a tree resin that which had a reddish tinge to it.

What is important is that the covering in a dye is for the purpose of appeasement, and atonement for sin.

Firstly what is being appeased and what is atonement being made for? We find that Krishna himself was smeared with colours.

The scriptures states in Isaiah 30:1

Woe to the rebellious children, saith the LORD, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin:”

The Color RunTM is a covering “not of my spirit” but is the coming together of “community” in “harmony” through what they have in “common”.
What do we have in common? 1 John 2:16 tells us that it is

“… all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”

As the word of God says in Proverbs 11:21

“Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished: but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered.”

hand join in hand

I myself will not be coloured with their dye or pitched inside (indoctrination) and outside (behaviours) nor initiated and baptised (coloured with a dye linked to the Holi Festival).

Can I strongly suggest you learn to practise resisting the evil and embracing the good (that which is godly, not what man considers good.)
Only God can help you do that, it not of ourselves or by our strength for Ephesians 2:8 tells us

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:  Not of works, lest any man should boast.  For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”

Be comforted that God saved us and is conforming us into the likeness of His Son to do His works and not the works of this world or our own works.

God has saved us not so we can sit on our blessed behind and entertain ourselves in the Western Culture of decadence and luxury.

Jesus Christ saved you (if you are saved) to do good works WHICH God prepared before hand. This of course is predestination. God is doing a good work in you if you are His and you will not be allowed to bumble along, keep your sin and expect God to wink at it. If you do not obey, God will teach you to obey, this may take pain, tribulation and trials, but you will mature and love the discipline of God, because you will suddenly see glimpses of how you hate your sin and how God hates it. Remember though good works do not save but are only the result of salvation.

If this is not happening, you need to get on your knees and be scared that God is not working in your life.

The church has not been given a commission to work with “community” but to preach the gospel to it and be separate from it. The separateness Alice Bailey’s spirit guide said was the only Sin and one the State will one day punish us for.

So the ark was pitched inside and out with pitch (a red coloured resin, aka the blood of Christ), so it could stay above the raging waters.
Equally we must be pitched inside and out in Christ’s blood so we can stay above the raging waters of the people, nations and tongues (communities of humanity) in the tumultuous times coming.
We need to be salt and light.

Jesus is our ark and this maybe coming to culmination very soon.

May we be wise and understand the situation as this. Though we are speaking about the throwing of colours, this is very misleading for it is not that simple as you can now see.

The entire festival of Holika is already celebrated in one way or another throughout the year in some shape and form though a part of it be found in Ash Wednesday, Easter, Christmas, Valentines Day, Halloween and so on the whole world operates on the same traditions derived from Babel and are vanity.

An issue I will address as soon as possible.

You better be sure to ask yourself this question “Are you really sure you know what this is all about and what is really going on?”

Our bodies need to have a certain level of fitness. Without it we find our mental faculties and emotions deteriorate along with our body, and in turn this can debilitate us in doing the Will of the Father in Heaven.
So we need to discern, what is only physical fitness, what is over abundance of fitness and when it is coming with social, group spiritual initiation and social indoctrination.

We are a dying people who have been conned in abandoning the Word of God with claims it is out dated. We can see as we go deeper into the rabbit hole that it in fact speaks with precision addressing our failings as though man had not changed. That’s is because mankind has not.

Isaiah 46:9-10 helps us understand why the scriptures speak as though they were written today saying

“Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,  10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure”

We are in most difficult and confusing times. I hope God uses my voice to provide direction, understanding and sanity in the midst of many disorienting voices. I hope my words are light and life and do not contradict the Word of Christ.

Don’t be a convert baptised and dyed into a New World Faith and if you are, make the changes God expects of you. Repent and Believe.

NOTES

1
1 Timothy 6:9-11

“But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.  10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.  11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.”

There has been a rising criticism of this passage due to a clear misunderstanding and lack of knowledge regarding it.

The Greek word for “love of money” is one word filarguri,a philarguria which means avarice but it is made up of two distinct Greek words fi,loj philos being friend, wishing one well and a;rguroj arguros being silver thus the love of shining.

This love of shining is what all men love. Be it money, riches, power, prestige, honour, awards, etc. The footpath of stars in Hollywood is an example of this. It does not have to strictly be money, since it also infers covetousness, though Capitalism has made shining / money / economy the one and only goal of life and the nation. (Not that I support Communism in any way.)
