and the New Dark Age
Peter: There is nothing new under the sun in terms of humans
becoming free of their instinctual behaviour patterns. We are still driven by fear and aggression, nurture and desire. The imposition of morals
and ethics – backed up by strict laws, police and armies – generally keeps a lid on it all and the whole system runs remarkably well, apart
from the various outbreaks of war, terrorism, murder, rapes, etc.
Many humans, however, are moved, for whatever reasons, to seek a freedom from this
‘normal’ world of fear and aggression, and many seek a solution to the Human Condition such that the human species, as a whole, could live
in peace on this planet. Unfortunately the search for freedom is based on the Ancient Wisdom of Gods, spirits, other-worlds, future lives, etc.
It is based firmly on that mother of all beliefs that ‘you can’t change human nature’. Seeing that we can do nothing about the ‘real’
world the only thing available – up until now – has been to escape into an imaginary world, created and sustained by belief – a
All things metaphysical are fashionable at present as we enter the ‘New Dark Age’
that is dominated by sacred, spiritual and other-worldly concepts. Ancient healings and esoteric medicines, divinations and prophecies,
energies and auras, folk tales and legends, gurus and shamans, fairies and goddesses, sacred sites and cosmic planes, chakras and levels of
consciousness, telepathy and spiritualism, visions and entities, ESP and UFO’s, somas and souls, mysticism and meditation, rituals and rites,
reincarnations and past lives, karmas and dharmas, devils and demons … they all testify to the vast extent of metaphysical beliefs. When one
really investigates one finds that everyone believes in the metaphysical – without the hope of a ‘something’ else, ‘someone else’
or ‘somewhere’ else the suffering of humanity would be unbearable.
The spiritual search is a vain attempt to seek ‘union’ with this purity and
perfection by ‘feeling’ connected, feeling Goodness, God, Love or whatever – the best on offer to date. The major and ultimately
disastrous flaw is that ‘when really cranked up’ these feelings lead to Union, Oneness, God-Realization, etc. and yet another Saviour or
Guru is realized to form yet another Religion to cause yet more wars ... The mere pumping up of good feelings leads to narcissism in the
extreme as the core of the problem, the instinctual passions, lies forever untouched.
There is now available a third alternative. The actual physical universe, being infinite – having
no outside to it – and eternal – having no beginning or end – is pure and perfect. There seems an innate sense of this purity and
perfection, but it is normally inaccessible to us humans, as we are born with an instinctual separate sense of ‘self’ with its accompanying
instincts and are further imbued with a social identity. This very ‘self’, the who I ‘think’ I am and the who I ‘feel’ I am keeps
me forever separate and alien from the actual world. Most humans have experienced this purity and perfection at some stage in their life in
what is called a PCE or pure consciousness experience. It is now possible, with diligence and persistence, to become free from the Human
Condition of malice and sorrow and experience this pristine magnificence 24 hrs. a day, every day.
