To uncover and to reveal... to lift the veils... these are the more accurate definitions of Apocalypse than the common denominator of flaming furnaces; four horsemen riding, nuclear bombs dropping and that Hollywood thing that tends to mess with our perception.
This is one of the biggest problems about comprehension; what do these terms and labels mean? Think about “Revelations” and you get the image of fiery angels pouring metaphorical white phosphorus from the heavens. Think about the word ‘revelation’ and it is a different thing. You need to keep this in mind when you seek to identify meaning. Things are not what they seem and neither are we.
In The New Testament there is a curious line which has been presented many different ways and which, strangely enough... is now being rewritten and in some cases transformed beyond recognition which speaks directly to the point of the statement itself; “Even the Devil is turned into an angel of light at the given moment, be not deceived.”
Let your mind turn that statement around. All kinds of things might ‘reveal’ themselves to sincere and penetrating inquiry. Sometimes, some people don’t publish my work because they think I’m working some kind of a God angle or because it doesn’t fit into their comprehensive schematic of what’s what.
I like to think that I’m as much of a scientist as I am a mystic and I guess that makes me a metaphysician, although it doesn’t mean I’m any good at it. Life is the stage where that will get demonstrated so let’s just leave it at that. That will also be a revelation for anyone who may be interested and certainly for me. I just think it’s important to keep in mind that there are things we can see and things that we can’t see. There are terms that are used and the terms do not always state what wound up in the common parlance if... you catch my drift.
Whether or not what religion tells us is true, is not germane to the point of this piece. The fact is that religion and those who manipulate it have a definite effect upon the world in which we live. That’s a given. So it would make sense to explore the way religion interprets the proclamations given by the ones upon which the religion is based.
This same thing applies to politics. This same thing applies to anything. What is the thing saying about itself and what are the people representing it saying about it and what is the actual meaning of the terms being used?
There is no one who can say that they know what composes the unknown. That is why it is called the unknown. It could be that there is a conscious force that rules the universe. It is a given that there are any number of conscious forms running around in the world we live in who are controlling or trying to control the world we live in. We’ve got all kinds of hierarchies here in the visible realm. I hate to throw a Mobius strip at you but wouldn’t you think that what you can’t see also operates according to the same thing?
The Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus is a short, precise and mysterious aggregation of words that implies just this. I’ll throw out one of the main lines again which is, “As above, so below, for the performance of the miracles of the one thing.”
It really does come down to how you define something whether or not you can achieve agreement. Hard, cold physics already proves what I call God. It doesn’t define or explain it and I’m told that’s not possible anyway but... it does say something is there. So... there is something that even hard core atheists can agree with and let’s just leave it at that.
I’m not an evangelist. I don’t have a collection plate. I don’t have a building with symbols and signs and I don’t have a ceremonial outfit and a funny hat. I’m just wanting to lay something out for you and hope it makes you think. I personally find religions are often the enemy of what I call God. I also think they are a veil. This brings us back to the Apocalypse thing and the meaning of terms... the lifting of veils... to uncover... to reveal...
There’s a lot of information out there. A lot of that information is a fabrication for the purpose of profit and deception. There are prophecies and portents and all kinds of things being bandied about. You are hearing the direst things and, it is true, there is evidence that indicates these possibilities as possibilities.
No one knows what’s coming. All of these ancient predictions and everything dancing around and pointing in whatever directions are just ideas and projections. Because life is cyclical it is possible to predict that certain things will repeat but nobody knows how that is going to happen so let’s leave that be too.
Okay... here’s the thing. It is glaringly evident that big changes are in the wings. Well... maybe it’s not glaringly evident to a lot of people because that’s just not interesting to them. They’re fully occupied and in pursuit of the object of their attention. They want to have this and they want to do that and everything else is either a help or a hindrance.
Materialism is a veil. One could say that it is the biggest veil in operation. It makes us forget who we are. We lose perspective and we identify with what’s outside of us and lose contact with what is inside of us. That’s a recipe for disaster. That’s where most of the world is at the moment and that is why what is happening is happening. It’s all about too many people wanting to have as much as they can get and some portion of people wanting to control all of it. This upsets balance.
When balance goes missing then natural forces come into play to adjust that balance and you get an apocalypse. Even if there were no divine force you would get an apocalypse and that’s the key issue. When the possession and application of technology exceeds the level of our humanity then we wind up doing destructive things because we neglected our inner growth in the pursuit of personal comfort and the desire for acquisition.
Some of the veils are coming off of the ancient lies and we are being compelled to witness the result of our belief in them. These veils are going to come off in a much bigger way as we move along and then everyone is going to stand in judgment of themselves. You don’t even need a God to come out of the sky on a fiery chariot and have him throw thunderbolts at you. The situation itself is prepared to do that.
Everyone is going to have the opportunity to decide what they hold valuable. If you can’t afford to lose something you don’t need then you’ll be riding after it when it goes. Everyone should take the opportunity to consider what is important to them and clarify this in their hearts and minds.
There can be no doubt that the shit is hitting the fan. Some things are more lasting than other things. My personal preference is to hold to what is enduring. What you will make of this is a matter for you to decide and the time will come when you will have to do so. No one can resist change. No one can resist being changed according to what they think and say and do. Your world cannot resist being changed by what you think and say and do. It’s right there in front of you.
