I had forgotten that particular quote. But, if anyone is in any doubt of how close to the bone this is ... have a look on the Wikipedia article discussion because the BKs are going to eradicate all mention of channelling and possession if they can.
"So what if the source was a channel? They are only teaching people the truth, their identity as souls rather than bodies."
BTW, what is different from channeling than me writing? Am I representing myself, or is some enlightened crystalline cotton-candy energy channeling through me? Many bags of potato chips have channelled me, focusing my entire being into the rapid devastating destruction of potatos fried in oil. My Father sometimes starts at the shrill and extreme libertarian spirits that manage to channel their nonsense through my diverted senses.
"Craziness is just logical thinking followed to extremes" someone said, or I made up just now (this morning actually), so I channeled that.
The problem with wise sayings is that wisdom seems incapable of bringing power to heel in the statistical aggregate that is human society. The young hotheads disregard the cautionary words of the elderly and the battlescarred. The elephant seals that fight and mate in Santa Cruz, California don't eat while they are visiting. The guys have to fight for territory, coming too early in the season and you can get a spot, but you'll be exhausted of strength to fight, depleted in their own supplies of fat.
Conflict among humans.
I am just gushing out what should be a second article, not having finished the first. But this war thing. I spent two days convincing a friend of mine of my view of the ineluctable power escalation of the military industrial complex. I converted him completely. According to him, the idea that finally tipped him was that the people controlling government, their wealth and power is continuing to increase, so that they have wound everything up to their advantage, all the levers of power are in their hands. Why would they walk away?
Is there any sign that they would want to voluntarily relinquish what they have so devoted themselves to acquire? Wealth and power flows to them in war. War is the massive unlimited exploitation of resources. It is like a fire. The power and wealth that accrues through war is an impossibly seductive trigger to individuals who have devoted their entire lives to building privilege and power.
The original Crusades are considered triumphs of stupidity. But the equation is the same, war for fame, money, land, resources, power.
War, to me is chemical (and nuclear!) energies channeling themselves through humankind. We are pathetic Matrix nervous systems that instinctually bond to tools, to knowlege, to craft. Giving our all to produce the fossil-fuel nuke conflagration that, appears to have increased the surface temperature of the Atlantic ocean, having doubled the average annual Atlantic hurricane and tropical storm counts over the past 100 years.
The person who "channeled" the bridge in Michigan obviously failed to do so. Belonging to companies, we channel corporate entities of dubious motivations. So many willing workers at Monsanto, where the possibilities of DNA manipulation (both recombinant and by controlling agribusiness seed stocks) not only the actual achievements but also the ability of future promise to attract bigger and bigger and bigger money.
Yet none of those commercializing it and probably no one in the entire company understands the implications of the novelty. Novelty means uncertainty. Yet the arrogance is driven by promise. And we are subjected to the arrogance of the drug companies, the ag companies, virtually everyone until there is a tragedy and a scandal, a temporary watchfulness before another cycle of "stupidity".
The problem with all the political commentators who deride stupidity and duplicity of the opposing side, it is not about being stupid. Everything is based on opportunity, resources, domination, just like the elephant seals fighting on the beach. Fighting for what matters more than anything else, or anyone else in the world.
Government exists to put an acceptable face on the unacceptable, the preordained outcome presented as choice.
Government is channeled by the energy that wants to rupture through its activation limits, discharging itself into chemical relaxation, completely careless of its target, whether a bulldozer crushing a person in a home or a cluster "bomblet" awaiting a moment of acceleration to explosively lash out shrapnel. Somehow the "energy" has channeled people into creating and using these ruthless weapons.
Coming back to our once Beloved Baba and now sex-anorexic Lehkraj Kirplani's wiki article topic of possession and spirits, I once opposed the emphasis on channeling in the first paragraph on that article. I have since come further.
Offering a person to be elite, and promising that God will take responsibility for him or her is not a healthy basis for spirituality. Even soul consciousness is only a healthy basis for spirituality according to the people who believe in it. All this stuff is typical of apparent spirits that acquire shamanistic authority as arbiters of truth and wisdom.
Wooh, that some pretty weird sh&t I've been channeling. 8)
