This is a well done film which covers the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, that Saudi journalist who was assassinated at the Saudi consulate in Turkey on Oct. 2, 2018.
The Dissident, 2.33GB, released January 24, 2020 (Sundance), contains subtitles.
Hope has two beautiful daughters, anger and courage.
Anger at the way things are, and courage to see that they don't remain the way they are.
This is the farewell address of Dwight D. Eisenhower,
the 34th President of the United States and predecessor to John F. Kennedy.
Please listen to the words of this wise and honorable man. They have relevance
to the above video.
This film delves into the assassination of John F.
Kennedy in November of 1963. Details are presented which, again,
have relevance to the above video. The impact of this assassination
is still being felt today! It, and subsequent assassinations (Bobby, Martin and others),
charted the path that the remainder of the 20th century would follow in global affairs.
It is still in control today only because we wear blinders, prefer NOT to see,
thereby showing that we lack courage! If you never saw it, a must watch.
If it has been awhile then refresh your memory. I recommend Shadow World, and the Eisenhower clip, first.
The impact of this film will then be greater. This IS NOT just an American issue!
It affects all of us.
NOTE: Sep 6th, 2020. Watched the CNN rebroadcast of GPS Fareed Zakaria - Trump's Conspiracy Theories, or download Conspiracy, 187 MB. I believe it first aired on July 26th, 2020. The program raises many good points which MUST be considered BUT he/they (CNN) cannot lump ALL such ideas, concepts, considerations, under the same heading! This leads to avoidance therefore ignorance, not an intelligent consideration of the points presented! The JFK film raises a number of issues which any intelligent AND objective individual can't help but notice. Just because an idea doesn't "fit in" does not invalidate it! CNN is being a bit naive when it comes to the JFK situation. I challenge them to thoroughly look into it!
"In 2020, dozens of Al Jazeera journalists had their phones hacked by 'Pegasus', one of the most advanced spyware systems in the world. How does it work, who is using it, and who are its victims?"
The Social Dilemma, 1.87GB, explores the rise of social media and the
damage it has caused to society, focusing on its exploitation of its users for financial gain through surveillance capitalism and data
mining, how its design is meant to nurture an addiction, its use in politics, its effect on mental health (including the mental health of
adolescents and rising teen suicide rates), and its role in spreading conspiracy theories such as Pizzagate and aiding groups such
We live, unfortunately, in a time where spirituality has been equated with
passivity. This is a very dangerous thing, because it's a propaganda or
indoctrination that's designed to create people who are spiritually oriented
and very nice, but very passive and ineffectual. And in that passivity, the
rabid dogs can have full sway.
NOTE: Nov 2nd, 2020. First saw the Sirius documentary years ago, rewatched it a few days ago. Just watched Unacknowledged for the first time. To those individuals and organizations at the core of what this film is about I say the following. 1st). Your existence doesn't surprise me. 2nd). These visitors are here because they were asked by, or offered their assistance to, those responsible for our humanities education, evolution. You have complicated, resisted, their efforts. You've done NOTHING to be of help. 3rd). You need to do your homework relative to our Planetary Hierarchy! You've done a good job of remaining hidden for a few decades, they've been doing this for thousands of years! 4th). They're aware of each of you, whether an individual or corporation. Records have been kept. Karmic judgements can not be avoided, debts must be paid, but they can be tempered if crimes are acknowledged and restitution made. 5th). You could be of significant help in redirecting human activities along lines more in agreement with Hierarchical plans. Instead of this continual destruction of our world you could help to build a remarkably beautiful one! The same expertise will be needed just channeled along more productive lines.

There is no scientific and hitherto unknown mode of solving racial problems. It is finally a question of right thinking, decent behavior, and simple kindness. The question will not be solved by inter-marriage or by isolating groups for occupation of special areas, or by any man-made ideas of superiority or inferiority. Right human relations will come by a mutual recognition of mistakes, by sorrow for wrong action in the past, and by restitution, if possible. It will come when nations can be educated to appreciate the good qualities of other nations and to comprehend the part they play in the whole picture. It will be developed when the sense of racial superiority is killed; when racial differences and racial quarrels are relegated to the unholy past and only a future of cooperation and of understanding is actively developed; it will make its presence felt when the living standards of right relation (sought by the enlightened people of every race) become the habitual attitude of the masses and when it is regarded as contrary to the best interests of any nation to spread those ideas which tend to erect racial or national barriers, arouse hatreds or foster differences and separation.
The Externalisation of the Hierarchy (1957) by Alice Bailey, p. 195. See The Negro Problem.
The Dark Brothers are--remember this always--brothers, erring and misguided yet still sons of the one Father though straying far, very far, into the land of distances. The way back for them will be long, but the mercy of evolution inevitably forces them back along the path of return in cycles far ahead. Anyone who overexalts the concrete mind (lower mind) and permits it continuously to shut out the higher, is in danger of straying on the left-hand path. Many so stray... but come back, and then in the future avoid like errors in the same way as a child once burnt avoids the fire. It is the man who persists in spite of warning and of pain who eventually becomes a brother of darkness. Mightily fights the Ego (Soul, higher mind) at first to prevent the Personality so developing, but the deficiencies of the causal body (a body containing our acquired positive attributes, found on higher mental levels, closely associated with the Soul) (for forget not that our vices are but our virtues misused) result in a lop-sided causal body, over-developed in some direction and full of great gulfs and gaps where virtues should be.
The dark brother recognizes no unity with his species, only seeing in them people to be exploited for the furtherance of his own ends. This then, on a small scale, is the mark of those who are being used by them wittingly or unwittingly. They respect no person, they regard all men as fair prey, they use everyone to get their own way enforced, and by fair means or foul they seek to break down all opposition and for the personal self acquire that which they desire.
The dark brother considers not what suffering he may
cause; he cares not what agony of mind he brings upon an opponent; he
persists in his intention and desists not from the hurt of any man, woman or
child, provided that in the process his own ends are furthered. Expect
absolutely no mercy from those opposing the Brotherhood of Light.
In this message I would like to consider with you
primarily the Festival of the Christ held at the time of the Full Moon of June, and the
work of the Christ as He prepares Himself for the fulfillment of His true mission on Earth.
The Christian Church has so distorted that mission and ruthlessly perverted the intention
for which He originally manifested that a consideration of that mission is deeply needed
and should be revolutionary in its effects. Starting with St. Paul, the theologians interpreted
His words in such a manner that they served to bridge the gap between the spiritual future
of the world and the Jewish dispensation which should have been passing out. So effective
has been their work that the teachings of the loving, simple Son of God have been largely
ignored; the failure of Christianity can be traced to its Jewish background (emphasized by
St. Paul), which made it full of propaganda instead of loving action, which taught the blood
sacrifice instead of loving service, and which emphasized the existence of a wrathful God,
needing to be placated by death, and which embodied the threats of the Old Testament
Jehovah in the Christian teaching of hell fire.
An international system of education, developed in joint conference by broadminded teachers and educational authorities in every country, is today a crying need and would provide a major asset in preserving world peace. Steps towards this are already being taken and today groups of educators are getting together and discussing the formation of a better system which will guarantee that the children of the different nations (beginning with the millions of children now demanding education) will be taught truth, without bias or prejudice. World democracy will take form when men everywhere are regarded in reality as equal; when boys and girls are taught that it does not matter whether a man is an Asiatic, an American, a European, British, a Jew or a Gentile but only that each has an historical background and history which enables him to contribute something to the good of the whole, and that the major requirement is an attitude of goodwill and a constant effort to foster right human relations. World Unity will be a fact when the children of the world are taught that religious differences are largely a matter of birth; that if a man is born in Italy, the probability is that he will be a Roman Catholic; if he is born a Jew, he will follow the Jewish teaching; if born in Asia, he may be a Mohammedan, a Buddhist, or belong to one of the Hindu sects; if born in other countries, he may be a Protestant and so on. He will learn that the religious differences are largely the result of man made quarrels over human interpretations of truth. Thus gradually, our quarrels and differences will be offset and the idea of the One Humanity will take their place.
Education in the New Age (1954) by Alice Bailey, pp. 87-8.
3. Those who are the true priests. They are priests by spiritual calling and not by choice. It is the misunderstanding of the province and duties of a priest which has led all the Churches (in the East and in the West) to their disastrous authoritarian position. The love of God, and the true spiritual incentive which recognizes God immanent in all nature and peculiarly expressing that divinity in man, is lacking in the bulk of the priesthood in all the world religions. Love is not the guide, the indicator and the interpreter. Hence the dogmatism of the theologian, his ridiculous and profound assurances of correct interpretation, and his oft-times cruelty, cloaked by his claim of right principles and good intentions. But the true priest exists and is found in all religions. He is the friend and the brother of all and, because he loves deeply, wisdom is his and (if he is of a mental type and training) his intuition is awakened and revelation is his reward. Ponder on this. The true priest is rare and is not found only in the so-called "holy orders".
Glamour: A World Problem by Alice Bailey, pp. 137-8.
Why this triumph of the Christ consciousness must always be spoken of in terms of religion, of church-going and of orthodox belief is one of the incredible triumphs of the forces of evil. To be a citizen of the Kingdom of God does not mean that one must necessarily be a member of some one of the orthodox churches. The divine Christ in the human heart can be expressed in many different departments of human living--in politics, in the arts, in economic expression and in true social living, in science and in religion. It might be wise here to remember that the only time it is recorded that Christ (as an adult) visited the Temple of the Jews, He created a disturbance!
Reappearance of the Christ by Alice Bailey, p. 52.
The day is dawning when all religions will be regarded as emanating from one great spiritual source; all will be seen as unitedly providing the one root out of which the universal world religion will inevitably emerge. Then there will be neither Christian nor heathen, neither Jew nor Gentile, but simply one great body of believers, gathered out of all the current religions. They will accept the same truth, not as theological concepts but as essential to spiritual living; they will stand together on the same platform of brotherhood and of human relations; they will recognize divine sonship and will seek unitedly to cooperate with the divine Plan, as it is revealed to them by the spiritual leaders of the race, and as it indicates to them the next step to be taken on the Path of Approach to God. Such a world religion is no idle dream but something which is definitely forming today.
Problems of Humanity (1947) by Alice Bailey, p. 140. This book has much to contribute towards developing proper human relations.
Within the human family, the various cleavages of which man is so distressingly aware will be bridged and ended when the mind is trained to control and to dominate within the realm of the personality and is correctly used as an analytical, integrating factor instead of as a critical, discriminating, separative factor.
Esoteric Psychology--Vol. II by Alice Bailey, p. 416.
It is useful to bear in mind that some nations are negative and feminine and others are masculine and positive. India, France, the United States of America, Russia and Brazil are all feminine and constitute the nurturing mother aspect. They are feminine in their psychology--intuitive, mystical, alluring, beautiful, fond of display and color, and with the faults also of the feminine aspect, such as over emphasis upon the material aspects of life, upon pageantry, upon possession and upon money or its equivalent as a symbol of the form side of existence. They mother and nurture civilization and ideas.
China, Germany, Great Britain and Italy are masculine and positive; they are mental, political, governing, standardizing, group-conscious, occult by inclination, aggressive, full of grandeur, interest in law and in laying the emphasis upon race and empire. But they are more inclusive and think in wider terms than the feminine aspects of divine manifestation.
The Destiny of the Nations by Alice Bailey, pp. 55-6, released in 1949.
Three great countries hold the destiny of humanity in their hands at this time: The United States of America, Great Britain and Russia. Great fusing, racial experiments are going on in all these lands; the rule of the people is being developed in all of them, though it is as yet in an embryonic state. In Russia it is being retarded by a dictatorship which will shortly end; in the States by corrupt politics, and in Great Britain by ancient imperialistic tendencies. But democratic principles are being developed, if not controlling; religious unity is being established though it is not yet functioning, and all three countries are learning very rapidly, though the United States at present is learning the most slowly.
The Destiny of the Nations, p. 101.
The few elevated minds who interrogate nature instead of prescribing laws for her guidance; who do not limit her possibilities by the imperfections of their own powers; and who only disbelieve because they do not know, we would remind of that apothegm of Narada, the ancient Hindu philosopher:
Never utter these words: I do not know this therefore it is false.
One must study to know, know to understand, understand to judge.
Isis Unveiled, 6th Ed., Vol. I, p. 628
The Purpose of God (to use a familiar phrase) is that which implements the Plan. . . . This Plan, in time and space, is not in any way concerned with individual man or with the life of any microcosmic entity in any of the kingdoms of nature, but with the wholes, the cycles of time, with those vast plans of livingness which man calls history, with nations and races, with world religions and great political ideologies and with social organisations which produce permanent changes in types, constitutions, planetary areas and cyclic manifestations.
The Rays and the Initiations by Alice Bailey, p. 307.
. . . Palestine should no longer be called the Holy Land; its sacred places are only the passing relics of three dead and gone religions. The spirit has gone out of the old faiths and the true spiritual light is transferring itself into a new form which will manifest on earth eventually as the new world religion. To this form all that is true and right and good in the old forms will contribute, for the forces of right will withdraw that good, and incorporate it in the new form. Judaism is old, obsolete and separative and has no true message for the spiritually-minded which cannot be better given by the newer faiths; the Moslem faith has served its purpose and all true Moslems await the coming of the Imam Mahdi* who will lead them to light and to spiritual victory; the Christian faith also has served its purpose; its Founder seeks to bring a new Gospel and a new message that will enlighten all men everywhere. Therefore, Jerusalem stands for nothing of importance today, except for that which has passed away and should pass away. The "Holy Land" is no longer holy, but is desecrated by selfish interests, and by a basically separative and conquering nation.
The Rays and the Initiations, p. 754.
*Also known as Lord Maitreya, the Christ, Shri Krishna and the Bodhisattva.
I told you before that accidents to individuals are the result, usually, of an explosion of force and that these explosions are caused by the hatreds and the unkind thoughts and the critical words of those involved in the accident. The world situation today is not caused by the ambitions of any one person or race, or by the materialism, aggression and pride of any particular nation. It is not basically the result of the wrong economic conditions existing in the world at this time. It is caused entirely by the widespread hatred in the world--hatred of people and of races, hatred of individuals and of those in power, or of influence, and hatred of ideas and of religious beliefs. Fundamentally, it is caused by the separative attitudes of all peoples and races who, down the centuries and also today, have hated each other and loved themselves. It is caused by people in every country, who have sought to cast the blame for conditions on everyone except themselves, and who have diligently sought for scapegoats whereby they may feel personal immunity for their share in the wrong thinking, the wrong speaking and the wrong doing.
The Externalisation of the Hierarchy by Alice Bailey, pp. 62-3.
Today, as a result of a spiritual awakening which dates from 1625 A.D., and which laid the emphasis upon a wider, general education and upon a revolt from the imposition of clerical authority, the radiation from the world of souls has greatly intensified and the Kingdom of God is becoming a corporate part of the outer world expression, and this for the first time in the long, long history of humanity.
The effect of this radiation or magnetic aura is now so extensive that we need no longer talk in terms of bringing in the kingdom or of its manifestation on Earth. It is already manifesting, and its aura is co-mingled with the mental, astral and etheric auras of mankind. Recognition only is required, but (and this is a factor to be noted) recognition is being withheld until the kingdom of souls can be safeguarded from the narrow claims of any church, religion or organization; many will claim (as they have ever done) that admittance into the Kingdom of God is to be found through their particular separative group. The Kingdom of God is not Christian, or Buddhist, or to be found focussed in any world religion or esoteric organisation. It is simply and solely what it claims to be: a vast and integrated group of soul-infused persons, radiating love and spiritual intention, motivated by goodwill, and rooted in the human kingdom, as the kingdom of men is rooted in and is a break-away from the animal kingdom.
Discipleship in the New Age, Vol. II, by Alice Bailey, pp. 407-8.
Today, in the world, another great moment of crisis has arrived. I refer not to the present world condition, but to the state of the human consciousness. Mind has arrived at a functioning power, personalities are coordinated. The three aspects of man are being blended; another formation or precipitation from the Hierarchy of adepts has become possible. On the physical plane, without any exoteric organisation, ceremonials, or outer form, there is integrating--silently, steadily and powerfully--a group of men and women who will supersede eventually the previous hierarchical effort. They will supersede all churches, all groups, and all organisations and will eventually constitute that oligarchy of elect souls who will govern and guide the world.
They are being gathered out of every nation, but are
gathered and chosen, not by the watching Hierarchy or by any Master, but by
the power of their response to the spiritual opportunity, tide and note. They
are emerging out of every group and church and party, and will therefore be
truly representative. This they do, not from the pull of their own ambition
and prideful schemes, but through the very selflessness of their service.
They are finding their way to the top in every department of human knowledge,
not because of the clamor they make about their own ideas, discoveries and
theories, but because they are so inclusive in their outlook and so wide in
their interpretation of truth that they see the hand of God in all
happenings, His imprint upon all forms and His note sounding forth through
every channel of communication between the subjective reality and the
objective outer form. They are of all races; they speak all languages; they
embrace all religions, all sciences and all philosophies. Their
characteristics are synthesis, inclusiveness, intellectuality and fine mental
development. They own to no creed, save the creed of Brotherhood, based on
the one Life. They recognise no authority, save that of their own souls, and
no Master save the group they seek to serve, and humanity whom they deeply
love. They have no barriers set up around themselves, but are governed by a
wide tolerance, and a sane mentality and sense of proportion. They look with
open eyes upon the world of men and recognise those whom they can lift and to
whom they can stand as the Great Ones stand,--lifting, teaching and helping.
They recognise their peers and equals, and know each other when they meet and
stand shoulder to shoulder with their fellow workers in the work of salvaging
humanity. It does not matter if their terminologies differ, their
interpretations of symbols and scriptures vary, or their words are few or
many. They see their group members in all fields--political, scientific,
religious, and economic--and give to them the sign of recognition and the
hand of a brother. They recognise likewise Those who have passed ahead of
them upon the ladder of evolution and hail Them Teacher, and seek to learn
from Them that which They are so eager to impart.
Fanaticism in religion, fanaticism in science, or fanaticism in any other question becomes a hobby, and cannot but blind our senses. It will ever be useless to argue with a fanatic. And here we cannot help admiring once more the profound knowledge of human nature which dictated to Mr. Sergeant Cox the following words, delivered in the same address as before alluded to: "There is no more fatal fallacy than that the truth will prevail by its own force, that it has only to be seen to be embraced. In fact the desire for the actual truth exists in very few minds, and the capacity to discern it in fewer still. When men say that they are seeking the truth, they mean that they are looking for evidence to support some prejudice or prepossession. Their beliefs are moulded to their wishes. They see all, and more than all, that seems to tell for that which they desire; they are blind as bats to whatever tells against them. The scientists are no more exempt from this common failing than are others."
Isis Unveiled, 6th Ed., Vol. I, p. 615
A wave of unrest seems to be passing over the world. Uneasiness prevails on every side. We walk gingerly as though on the edge of a precipice. Discontent is spreading everywhere. . . . . . . . What is the meaning of the general restlessness? What are its causes? Is the world growing old and effete? Is the human race worn out? Is this generation incapable of the great achievements of the past? Does its materialism clog its powers and prevent its progress? Is the world going wrong for want of an ideal? A people which does not believe in its lofty mission will never accomplish it. Science has made gigantic strides in our days; but have its discoveries added much to the sum of human happiness? It has contributed to our material comfort in various ways, but it has not done much for the federation of the world. The great growth of luxury is not a good, but an evil, if it rob us of our belief in our great destiny and if it weaken our endeavour. If the time is out of joint, is it not possible that worship of wealth is responsible for it? He who makes haste to be rich shall not be innocent. Ours is emphatically the age in which men make haste to be rich, without much regard to the means.Galignani's Messenger
Keely and His Discoveries by Mrs. Bloomfield Moore, 1893, page 332
And now we will try to give a clear insight into one of the chief objects of this work. What we desire to prove is, that underlying every ancient popular religion was the same ancient wisdom-doctrine, one and identical, professed and practiced by the initiates of every country, who alone were aware of its existence and importance. To ascertain its origin, and the precise age in which it was matured, is now beyond human possibility. A single glance, however, is enough to assure one that it could not have attained the marvellous perfection in which we find it pictured to us in the relics of the various esoteric systems, except after a succession of ages. A philosophy so profound, a moral code so ennobling, and practical results so conclusive and so uniformly demonstrable is not the growth of a generation, or even a single epoch. Fact must have been piled upon fact, deduction upon deduction, science have begotten science, and myriads of the brightest human intellects have reflected upon the laws of nature, before this ancient doctrine had taken concrete shape. The proofs of this identity of fundamental doctrine in the old religions are found in the prevalence of a system of initiation; in the secret sacerdotal castes who had the guardianship of mystical words of power, and a public display of a phenomenal control over natural forces, indicating association with preterhuman beings. Every approach to the Mysteries of all these nations was guarded with the same jealous care, and in all, the penalty of death was inflicted upon initiates of any degree who divulged the secrets entrusted to them. We have seen that such was the case in the Eleusinian and Bacchic Mysteries, among the Chaldean Magi, and the Egyptian hierophants; while with the Hindus, from whom they were all derived, the same rule has prevailed from time immemorial. We are left in no doubt upon this point; for the Agrushada Parikshai says explicitly, Every initiate, to whatever degree he may belong, who reveals the great sacred formula, must be put to death,
Isis Unveiled, 6th Ed., Vol. 2, pp. 98 & 99
True philosophy and divine truth are convertible terms. A religion which dreads the light cannot be a religion based on either truth or philosophyhence, it must be false. The ancient Mysteries were mysteries to the profane only, whom the hierophant never sought nor would accept as proselyte; to the initiates the Mysteries became explained as soon as the final veil was withdrawn. No mind like that of Pythagoras or Plato would have contented itself with an unfathomable and incomprehensible mystery, like that of the Christian dogma. There can be but one truth, for two small truths on the same subject can but constitute one great error. Among thousands of exoteric or popular conflicting religions which have been propagated since the days when the first men were enabled to interchange their ideas, not a nation, not a people, nor the most abject tribe, but after their own fashion has believed in an Unseen God, the First Cause of unerring and immutable laws, and in the immortality of our spirit. No creed, no false philosophy, no religious exaggerations, could ever destroy that feeling. It must, therefore, be based upon an absolute truth. On the other hand, every one of the numberless religions and religious sects views the Deity after its own fashion; and, fathering on the unknown its own speculations, it enforces these purely human outgrowths of overheated imagination on the ignorant masses, and calls them revelation. As the dogmas of every religion and sect often differ radically, they cannot be true. And if untrue, what are they?
