- Throughout the millennia many impulses have gone from
the Masters of Compassion to humanity.
One of the effects of such an impulse is the formation
of groups of people who want to put the call for
liberation into practice. People realise that the
individual is not strong enough to break the seven
chains that tie us to the world of Lucimort, and they
form groups to achieve liberation in united striving.
If such a group is successful, its members will leave
earth fairly quickly and the group will become part of
the Brotherhood of Compassion. Being successful means
being able to give up the Self of matter for the SELF
of the Spirit.
However not every group is successful in that sense.
Put symbolically, Voldemort's spies are able to enter
the ranks of a group and gradually take it over and
change its aims. In other words, the self of matter,
the ego, Peter Pettigrew, begins to interfere. What
was initially a pure group aimed at liberation from
the fallen universe gradually degenerates from an
earth-leaving group into an earth-seeking group. The
reason is that the members have not understood what is
required or have not been willing to sacrifice the
mortal self for the liberation of the original Divine
Human Being dormant in the heart, in Lily.
Of course there is only one Truth. That is, that this
universe is not divine but is a degenerated part of
the Divine Universe. Tao is not in this universe, for
this is ruled by Voldemort. Just as Voldemort
personifies the higher self in the microcosm, so does
he do this in the earth-cosmos.
The Teachings of Liberation contain the Truth, but in
a very symbolic form, and in a veiled way. Hence when
a group bends its aims from liberation to servitude to
Lucifer, it needs to make just a few slight
adjustments to the Teachings of Liberation. One of
these is to interpret the Teachings Literally. As I
said in my Christmas message, the real aim of the
reports in the New Testament of the birth of Jesus
refer to the birth of a new soul when a person goes
the Path of Liberation. But when people's minds are
fixed on the idea that this is a historical event that
happened once and once only, and that Jesus came
literally to take away the sins of the world, so all
you have to do is accept Jesus as your saviour and
Bob's your uncle, it would never occur to them in a
million years that Jesus' birth should take place
inside them personally.
In addition to taking the Teachings of Liberation
literally, a few minor adjustments have to be made to
the texts of available scriptures. That was very easy
in the early days of Christianity because manuscripts
were written by hand, and so were fairly rare. It was
easy to exterminate manuscripts which spoke of
Liberation in very express ways, and adopt more veiled
scriptures as "canon". A few words were changed here
and there, an emphasis added occasionally, a too
explicit passage removed, and we have a Holy Book
that's ready for use as a means of propagation of the
new faith. What started of as a means of Liberation
ended up as means of imprisonment. And so the group
grew from a handful to many millions.
Of course not everybody agreed with the interpretation
of the new group, which called itself the one and only
universal Church. But we have ways of making people
see our point of view, don't we? It's amazing how
people are ready to see a different point of view when
they're on a stake in the fire. And let's not put the
fire out when they've confessed the error of their
views. Let it burn out their sins and they'll go
straight to heaven.
Of course we have to have a special department in our
Ministry to guard the faith and eradicate heresy.
Let's call it the Inquisition with the High Inquisitor
This is what I believe Jo is saying with the character
of Dolores Umbridge. Hogwarts symbolises a School of
Liberation. The Magic World symbolises the spiritual
world as a whole, and the Ministry for Magic
symbolises the Hierarchies which control the world
from the astral plane. What started out as a group
with Liberating ideals ended up using the Spanish
Inquisition. Notice how Dolores is a Spanish name? And
how it means, "pain"?
