reality" with its fable convenues and fata morganas. External
reality is a necessary maya from which the complex soul and
densified bodies were brought down through the Fall of Man to the
Christ Event. Now, since the last third of the 19th century we live
bearing the fruit of the fourth cultural epoch which has also laid
the foundation for the first ever experience of the I Am in this
lifetime. We say I Am as self-recognition for the first time ever,
and this experience only stands to grow in maturity as the Conscious
Ego begins even now to transform the soul members to their higher
It is important to understand that Michael, prior to becoming the
Spirit Regent in 1879, fought a battle in heaven against the dragon
beings from 1841 to 1879, and defeated them. So, from 1879 until
1918 Ahrimanic spirits fell to earth along with Michael's return.
World War I has everything to do with the influence of these fallen
spirits of darkness. Thus, Michael's return to earth is also
accompanied by these "beasts" from out of the heavenly world.
Michael's defeat of the dragon forces these spirits down to earth
where they wreak havoc on the soul and spirit of mankind, but the
path of freedom demands that we defeat them through our efforts
right here in the physical world.
I am not so much solidly anchored in this physical reality but
rather conscientiously cognizant of the demands of our age to defeat
the beast through spiritual activity. Remember, our freedom is owed
to the likes of Lucifer and Ahriman, and now since the last third of
the 19th century, the Asuras as well. The double-edged sword now
issues out of our own mouths. The choice is now made ours.

Every so often, the moon gives an objective proof of this. It is
called a lunar eclipse.
