Easter

4 April 2021

I have never written on this subject before, as I am not religiously trained. But the data and attention on this subject kept piling up, to the point where I feel that I should write about it.

Tradition

Easter celebrates the last day in a series of events related in various biblical stories. It is connected with the Jewish tradition of Passover, as these events are said to have occurred during the Jewish Passover.

Passover celebrates part of the Exodus story, which includes the parting of the Red Sea and other miraculous occurrences.

On the day we celebrate as Easter it is said that Jesus arose from death. This includes his ascent into Heaven.

As most are probably aware, Jesus had been killed by the Romans as a favor to various Jewish leaders who felt threatened by his activities. Tradition holds that he was nailed to a cross, where he died with the assistance of a Roman soldier who cut him with a lance.

It is a very emotional story, and full of the gruesomeness that we associate with the life and politics of those times. It is the foundational story on which Christianity as a redemptive faith is based.

Recent mentions – Dave Rubin

Dave Rubin is a conservative-leaning liberal from New York who currently lives in Los Angeles and has made a name for himself doing political commentary and interviews mostly as video podcasts.

In recognition of Easter, Dave invited a local Rabbi and a local Priest to come on the show and talk about these religious traditions in particular and also the larger problems that religion faces in the form of secular opposition such as that embodied in the “public health” mandates which closed many churches for an extended period of time.

Their discussion centered on the secular attack on religion and their attempts to maintain a balance in their congregations between the desire for a spiritual connection and concerns for personal and public health and safety. I have dealt with these issues elsewhere on this blog.

There is wide agreement among conservatives and religious people that the church closures violated the First Amendment and were unwarranted in the face of all evidence and rationality. I agree with this view.

Discussions with Christian believers

I often walk down to Old Sacramento on Saturdays, and there I meet people who wish to talk with passers by about Christianity. I have come to be well-acquainted George, his wife, and their beautiful black Lab. Yesterday I was met by Robert and his brother and we had a long discussion about faith and eternity.

Christians are sold on the idea that they visit Earth only once, where they are normally presented with numerous opportunities to follow The Lord. I told him of my understanding that people return to Earth numerous times. As this truth is blocked using various memory loss technologies, most consider it only a belief. This includes most Christians. I of course disagree with this and feel that the evidence for this truth is powerful enough to make it a basic fact of life.

The story of the crucifixion and resurrection is very important to Christians. Because of the numerous written accounts, they are convinced that these events actually did occur more or less as related in the Bible, and that we should assign to these events the significance that Jesus asked us to assign to them. I disagree with this, but not strenuously. It is a story that seems to have done some good over the centuries, and one I would not wish to pull out from underneath the people of Earth, like some old dirty rug, without a better story that might serve a similar purpose.

Without the technology of Confession as practiced in Scientology, our trespasses against societal agreements, as well as our own sense of personal integrity, can weigh heavily upon us. And this can be compounded by similar unresolved actions in our more distant past (past lives). This sense of guilt (that we are all “sinners”) can then be used by the unscrupulous to lead us to do things that further weaken our position in life. Christian teaching is one attempt to unburden us from this guilt so that we may live a free and proud life, even though we know we have done wrong. I don’t see this approach as very effective. I think Scientology works much better.

Christianity is influenced by Buddhist teachings on the subject of right action. Compassion and charity are seen as essential parts of life for believers. This opens the door, however, to tolerating wrong action in others. This is an essential paradox of human life that each belief system handles in its own way. Even the Scientology ethics methods, which includes the assignment of conditions and so forth, are not always easy to follow or obvious in their application.

Data obtained from Remote Viewing

Courtney Brown (Farsight Institute) and his remote viewers have addressed some of the incidents connected with Easter and the Exodus and have uncovered data which I consider significant.

For the full story, you can check out their older projects and trailers for their newer projects on YouTube.

But in a nutshell, when it comes to the Crucifixion, it appears that what is reported in the Bible is not totally accurate.

Jesus, it appears, had “heavenly” (ET) assistance and was working on a plan for Earth that his people hoped would be successful. They wanted to install a newer religious institution to replace the ones in that area (Judaism? Or was the Roman system more likely the target?) and this would require some major miraculous events that would get everyone fired up. All the Disciples were apparently in on the fibs surrounding the crucifixion and resurrection. It was the job of Judas to find someone who looked like Jesus who could be presented to the Romans for them to execute. A local religious fanatic was chosen (we have had problems with religious fanatics ever since!) and it was he who was killed by the Romans. Judas had to be accused of betraying Christ in order for the story to work, which apparently he gladly agreed to. The real Christ meanwhile retreated to a somewhat remote location, and over the next few days, the rest of the story, with some ET assistance apparently, was carried out. I’m not sure Jesus was literally pulled up into a space ship, but that is what the findings imply. All the Disciples then agreed to go out and promulgate the story as it exists in the Bible today. A small fib, they figured, was justified to forward their cause and claim the final “miracle” of Jesus’ life.

Courtney’s viewers later did projects on the parting of the Red Sea and on Moses. It seems these were also ET-assisted events. The bottom line is that ETs were significantly involved in the development of the Judeo-Christian stories as told in the Old and New Testaments. This is supported by Hubbard’s findings that religious belief was an important part of the control mechanisms put in place in other civilizations preceding those of Earth. If anything, they play a more important role out there, as we on Earth are the outcasts, less willing to accept these teachings and stories.

Conflicts of interest

This section is not meant to address the issues mentioned above.

But what I have written certainly paints a picture of confusion for all of us living here. And it does not solve through simple disbelief.

And so it goes with my attempts to find friendship.

Who is most likely to pursue a relationship with me? Someone who sees me as relatively safe, kind, and tolerant, and who needs that because of previous experiences. So, who has reached for me the hardest? Two woman who are overweight and emotionally compromised.

They have both had children with husbands who eventually left them. Why those separations or divorces occurred is lost in the mists of time. But what happened subsequently was similar for both women. They fell in love with men with major emotional and health problems. In one case, this eventually led to an eviction and subsequent homelessness for over a year. In the other case, the man died one night of complications from a recent illness, even as she struggled to revive him.

Both of these women desperately want and need a stable partner, but are very unlikely to find him because they themselves are in such bad shape. I am sure this is the sad story of many women – and men – as they lived through the hopefulness of youth only to find their training and personality failing them as they grew older.

What am I to do with such people? I am no messiah! And there is no system currently present that is fully equipped to help these women live out the later years of their lives with some dignity and happiness. The “mental health” system has totally failed us. It is based on a “psychology” more perverse than any religious story ever written, resulting in practices that could easily be seen as the work of the Devil himself.

The more society believes in this secular form of “redemption,” the more it caves in on itself. I have referred both these women to Scientology. But one is a TV addict and barely literate. And the other has been thoroughly seduced by the new secular “religion” that involves psychology, molecular biology, genetics and drugs. If either of them pulls through into a better place, it will truly be a miracle.

And so goes the planet…
