Re: Back Home
- The idea that Michael wisdom and inspiring human intelligence is
everywhere, also reveals amazing insights from Parables, fairy
tales, Soloviev, Orwell, Twain, films...massive clear cut
ideological insights that support Spiritual Science rain on us in
We can learn from such wonders as "King Lear" and the "Wizard of
OZ", when the great Wizard is revealed, as just a flim flam man, and
Lear comes down to the sheath and shell of the ego, after he strips
himself and deconstructs his entire Kingdom to see if his intellect
can truly understand Love, Lear appears as a partially doddering
fool. These are wonderful symptoms, studies, insights, all created
by humans, and if we know how to look into these things using the
lens of Spiritual Science, you gain real courage as well as humor.
Learn how to look, study and see with your minds eye and heart how
Intelligence is the realm of Michael and how wonderful are Humans to
experience and tell the tale of Beings, Beings hidden in our own

Such things happen, like "The Green Snake and Beautiful Lily" and

THE WILES OF WIZARDS!
"In the story "The Wizard of Oz" by L. Frank Baum, the Wizard,
actually a carnival side show performer from the American midwest,
builds a hideous mask of paper-mache and sets it on fire, then uses
the burning apparition to scare Dorothy Gale into agreeing to attack
the Wicked Witch of the West.
Now attacking witches is a tricky business. There is a good reason
that the wizard himself, being just a carnival performer from the
midwest, does not want to do it. Witches, after all, have air
superiority. Dorothy Gale has had the good common sense to avoid
combat with witches. So the Wizard resorts to trickery to fool
Dorothy into thinking that she has no choice but to do what the
Wizard asks. The Wizard concocts a monster that appears when needed
to terrify Dorothy into attacking the Witch. In the process, Dorothy
and her companions are nearly killed. But for the sake of the
requisite happy ending (this is a children's story, after all) and
the eventual MGM musical, they survive, only to learn that the
Wizard's burning head was a fake, and nothing to be afraid of in the
America is living that story right now. A huckster from the midwest
has conned his way into being ruler of the land, and for his own
reasons came into office wanting to wage war on a variety of
targets, most of which had a great deal of oil sitting on top of
them. But of course the huckster does not wish to risk his own life
(or that of his family and friends). And the people of the land,
like Dorothy Gale, see no reason to go wandering off, in this case
east rather than west, to confront an enemy of unknown lethality in
a war based on dubious motives.
So, the huckster makes up a paper-mache monster and shows it to the
terrified audience amid a display of smoke and flame called 9-11.
The manufactured monster's name is "Osama bin Laden", trained and
funded by the CIA during the Afghanistan wars.
So Americans, scared by the paper-mache and fire monster, are scared
into marching off to war. Because this is NOT a children's book and
there is no planned MGM musical, many of those who marched off to
battle are not marching back home; roughly 1200 as of this writing.
Americans have taken a closer look at the huckster who sent their
loved ones off to die. They have looked past the smoke and mirrors
of the wizards deceptions and seen the truth. They have seen that
there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq for them to be
afraid of. Americans have seen that Iraq was not supporting Osama,
nor was Iraq connected to the smoke and fire display that terrified
Americans into supporting a war none of them really wanted.
Americans have peeked behind the curtain to see the huckster from
the midwest pulling his levers and pushing his buttons to animate
his mechanical monsters, to scare the people into going off and
fighting those targets the huckster dare not confront himself.
And here we are, with America ready to throw the huckster out, and
sure enough, with a press of a button and a throw of the lever, the
manufactured monster appears right on cue to scare the people into
doing what the huckster wants, which is to not fire his lying ass
over all the kids who died in a war based on lies and deceptions.
So, we come down to the real question here. Are you a child that can
be scared into doing what you are told without question? Or are you
an adult, ready to peek behind the curtain at the machinery with
which the huckster from the midwest, marveling and yet shamed at how
easy you were fooled before?
Will you be fooled and made a fool of yet again? Or are you ready to
live without being controlled by manufactured monsters?"

"We shall best understand this if we consider the following: Man has
at the present time an ego, an astral body, an etheric body, and a
physical body. How does further development come to pass? Through
working continually upon himself.
"Today the ego of man is still in many respects powerless to affect
the other principles of his being, he is in many ways unable to
control his passions, but is therefore ruled by them, that is, by
his astral body. There is a great difference between human beings in
this respect. Compare a savage who eats his fellow men with a
European and then think of a high idealist such as Schiller or
Francis of Assisi. You see here an advancing development which
consists in man learning more and more to control his astral body by
his ego. A time will come when the ego will do this completely; it
will irradiate the astral body completely. Man will then have formed
a higher principle, this principle we call Manas, or Spirit-Self. It
is nothing but the astral body, which has been transformed by the
"When we observe a man of the present day clairvoyantly we see that
his astral body really consists of two parts, namely, the part that
is already under the control of the ego and the part he is not yet
able to control. This latter is still filled with lower forces and
impulses, and when the ego drives these out all kinds of powers are
added to the astral body.
"In order that the astral body should not be destroyed by the lower
forces it must always be permeated and suffused by higher beings who
control it in the same way that man will control it in the future
when he has attained the goal of his evolution. The beings whose
task it is to control that part of the astral body which is still
uncontrolled by man are one stage higher than he is, they are the
Angels, or Spirits of Twilight. In fact one such Spirit watches over
every human being, and this Spirit has power over the astral body;
it is therefore no childish idea, but profound wisdom, to speak of
guardian angels. These guardian angels have a great duty to perform.
"Let us consider the course of a human life in its entirety. We know
that it passes through many incarnations. At a given time at a
certain point in earthly evolution man began to live as a soul, as
an ego, in his first incarnation on earth. He then died, there was
an interval, then a new incarnation, and so it has gone on from
incarnation to incarnation; and these will only come to an end at a
far-off period of human evolution. Man will then have passed through
all his incarnations, and he will also have attained power to
control his astral body perfectly. This can not be done till he has
passed through all his incarnations, at least not in normal
"Now, an Angel accompanies the inmost part of man's being and guides
him from incarnation to incarnation, so that he may truly fulfil his
mission on earth. It is, in fact, as if the human being had been
able, since the beginning of his life on earth, to look up to an
exalted Spirit who was his prototype, who could completely control
his astral body, and who said to him Thou must be like unto me when
in future thou passest out of this earthly evolution." It is the
task of Angels to guide the incarnations of men' and whether we say
that he looks up to his higher self, whom he must come to resemble
more and more, or that he looks up to his Angel as his great
pattern, it is exactly the same in a spiritual sense.
"As man works further upon himself he will transform the etheric
body into Buddhi, or Life Spirit; one day he will do this
consciously, even now he is working on it unconsciously. So even
higher Spiritual Beings have to work today in all human etheric
bodies; this is the task of the Fire Spirits.
"Now, human etheric bodies arc not individually so different as are
human astral bodies. Every man has his own particular virtue or
vice, but in things connected with the etheric body there is a
certain similarity this can be seen in the qualities peculiar to a
race or nation. Because of this we see that each individual human
being does not have an Archangel in connection with his etheric
body, but that whole nations and races are guided by higher or lower
Spirits of Fire. The peoples and races of the earth are indeed
guided as a whole by Archangels.
"Here our view expands to something which to many persons is
entirely abstract, but for those who are able to see into the
Spiritual world it is entirely concrete. If anyone today mentions a
national spirit, or a national-soul, this is considered an
abstraction. It is not so to the occult observer. To him the whole
nation is as if embedded in Spiritual substance and this Spiritual
substance is the body of a Fire-Spirit. From hoary antiquity until
now our evolution has been led and guided from people to people,
from race to race, by the Spirits of Fire, whose bodies are the
souls of nations, and whose mission it is to guide the course of
human evolution through the various races of the earth."
Human forms are interesting standard issue as Star forces walking
around on two legs, but with highly unique nuances or no nuances at
all. We compared France and Joan of Arc to Mao. But when we look at
individuals who tap the Archangel forces, Martin Luther King Jr.
took hold as did Gandhi and as human beings, there is a teaching
delivered to Christianize and uplift new forces into the education
of the total race, and folk, with emphasis on the new mission of the
Risen Etheric Christ Being.
Civil Rights was not on the agenda of the Chinese under Mao.
Undifferentiated etheic forces in the general race, would have and
have come in conflict with incarnated astral differences. These
individuals faced imprisionment, Nelson Mandela for instance,
torture, death, as Joan of Arc did, and all in the model of the
service of the higher developing faculties of the I AM. Germany
bought the leadership of Hitler for a time and beings gathered, from
darker retarded regions to prop up this human personality, Hitler.
Again we see the Peoples Republic of China and Mao doing the same
type of limb, etheric goose step, that Germany was doing, massive
mind F--king. This will force went up into the brain, so that being
different from the rest of the tidal etheric and physical body
politic and will was seen as criminal. America is moving in a
J.Edgar Hooverian, Patriot Act, Ashcroft twilight zone to nab the
patriotism, the mind numbed will of America in order to create a
schism that individual thinking I AM's and human community and
Steiner's understanding how thinking and idealism is all drawn from
the powerful world of thought and the Michael School, creates
individual who draw from the same spiritual world, now sits on a
knife edge of a vote.
The Atlantean aspect was immitation, yawning, was one of Steiner's
examples, as infectious yawning and working, as in The Peoples
Projects, limbs moving in ATlantean unity, or emotions pulling
together for some abstract communist patriotism, is no different
than abstract Nazi nationalism or abstract U.S. flag waving. The
difference in the west is that nuanced astral bodies were free to
make lots of choice, ridiculous choices between Paper and Plastic
and I think George Carlin gives a clear understanding of the kind of
astral, controlled choices we in the west are being dealt. Watered
down, beaten down Liberalism by Righ Wing talk show hosts, all
little tin Hitlers. What do you think the American term Ditto Head
means? It means the Peoples Republic of China and a retarded
spiritual Archangel fight against growing out of the ancient
Egyptian two dimensional beingness.
But massive team spirit, unity of etheric movement, bypassing
discerning and individualized I AM's were part of Mao's Little Red
Book. The Chinese Bible for behavior experimentation and
modification in mass Archangelic group numbing. But the idea
remains, why did this mass of human forms and etheric bodies
gravitate to behave in such an imposed, mirrored, Atlantean unity.
Well it is easier to go along with an overwhelming crowd than defy
it for the sake of defending the astral unique gifts we carry.
Integrating these unique capacities in the whole has been partly the
cause of Civil Rights and Geneva Convention advancements.
But taking into consideration Retarded ARchai and Archangel
activity, such as that Retarded aspect of an ancient Egyptian
ARchangel in the U.S., acting today, and retarded beings focused out
of Mao or Hitler, we understand that along with the developing I AM,
humanity is embedded in Beings and we ain't even close to mature or
wise enough to take up the symptomology studies of the various
beings or even the deconstruction of the psychological body and
shell that is the vehicle of the I AM. ONly Spiritual Science and a
few rare psychological models, that still separate the psyche of man
from nature or the cosmos as serving a model that serves a mirage of
what science thinks the human being is, these rare models still
betray man and exchange a mirage and a lie for how the human spirit
exists in this world.
