The Ascendancy of Psychotic Knowledge (cont.)
energetic battery of yogic Realization that once powered human
history, the energy of Spirit supplied by the masters of meditation,
has indeed gone dead, all over the world. This has been a long
process, involving the suppression of monasteries, the destruction of
the world’s indigenous cultures and their yogic/shamanic
lineages, and the materialistic indoctrination of society, turning
people against their spiritual leaders, as the Chinese are now doing
in Tibet, having destroyed its monastic culture. Only a few sparks of
Real spiritual power can be felt anywhere. But those embers of the
sacred flame can still be fanned into a fire that will renew human
existence for another cycle of cosmic time, at an even higher level
of consciousness than in the past cycle, if we are willing to perform
the great work of becoming adept yogis.
attempt at demythologizing religion, which can be seen in such
contemporary cultural artifacts as the Zeitgeist films, falsely
proclaims that the great avatars of the past were mere
representations of the Sun, and that the world’s mythologies
were only descriptions of astronomical events. Such a view contains
the half-truth of its recognition of the amazingly profound
astronomical knowledge of the ancient world, but fails to recognize
that astronomical data, and indeed the Sun itself, was used only as a
representation of the Supreme Real. Those who have had near-death
experiences and those who have entered higher forms of Samadhi, and
even some who have had nonordinary tryptamine experiences, can
testify that the light of our physical sun pales in comparison to the
supernal light of the Supreme Sun of Transcendent Consciousness!
the signifier can no longer be trusted as expressing Truth, we must
return to the gold standard of Silence. Only the utter mental silence
of authentic inner peace that radiates the ineffable but irresistible
divine energy can be effective as an organizing principle for new
communities. Knowledge of the mechanics of the ego and its deceptive
cognitive malfunctioning is important, but that knowledge can only be
trusted when it is taught by those who have achieved genuine
transcendence of the ego and freedom from its drives and pathologies.
Words are cheap, but silence is golden. The byproducts of inner
silence include humility, compassion, virtue, detachment, and
luminous fullness. These byproducts also cannot be counterfeited.
Their appearance in a community today is extremely rare, and any
community that can operate with all its members resonating at such a
frequency of conscious harmony will astound any visitor.
