The"Individual human being"Is a dwarfed, misshapen wretch blind to the immensity of his true spiritual nature


"Prophecy is often based on resonances: the spirit of a bygone era never really disappears, it just remains inchoate, settling down into the subtextual quantum level of indeterminate, nonlocal, atemporal potentiality, until the cavity of Space/Time once again conforms to the frequency of its vibration. We have already seen how the prophets whose visions touched upon the Millennial destiny of the Holy See — Daniel, Malachy, Dante — each lived in a era which resonates apocalyptically with our own: the dissolute decadence of ancient Babylon, the violent factionalism of the 12th Century Papacy, and the civil chaos of 13th Century Florence. And so, we should not be surprised to find that the prophet whose visions were perhaps best"Attuned"to the fate of the Church in the late 20th Century was a man who lived through the Spanish Inquisition and was a contemporary of the Jesuits' founder Ignatius Loyola — Dr. Michel de Nostredame.

The Prophecies of Nostradamus

Along with the one thousand Quatrains, Nostradamus' Centuries also contain two sections of prose — the Preface, which is addressed to his son Caesar, and the Epistle to King Henry II of France. Not coincidentally, both of these segments focus significantly on the historical period of the 18th Century Enlightenment and the great French Revolution. In his Preface, Nostradamus explains to his son that he had originally intended to keep his prophecies a total secret out of well-founded fear of persecution by the Church and its Inquisition, whose leaders would likely find the foreshadowed changes"so little in accord with what they would like to hear."He goes on to say that he was only moved to set down his visions, albeit in very cryptic verses, because he felt compelled to reveal what he foresaw as the"Collective Advent."

What did Dr. Michel mean by the"Collective Advent"? Some interpreters have seen this phrase as referring to the political supremacy of the"vulgar"classes and thus have sought to apply it to the French and/or the Russian revolutions. This thesis gets some support from a subsequent passage of the Preface, which clearly identifies the period of the Enlightenment as the beginning of a great transitional phase ultimately leading to a new Golden Age. And, in one of only a dozen references to precise dates in the Centuries, the Epistle predicts a fierce persecution of the Church in the year 1792"Which they will believe will mark a renewal of time."As it turns out, this is among the handful of Nostradamus' Prophecies the fulfillment of which is absolutely irrefutable, since the year 1792 was the beginning of the intensely anti-clerical Reign of Terror, and was the very year designated as Year One of the French revolutionary calendar.

Without doubt, the period of the French Revolution represents one of the three great crises in the history of the sovereign Papacy — with the other two being the Protestant Reformation and our own era. In 1773, Pope Clement XIV, bending to the pressure of Spain and France, demobilized the shock troops of the Inquisition with his decree suppressing the Jesuit order. Soon after issuing his edict, Clement would be poisoned and would die precisely as had been predicted by an Italian soothsayer named Bernardino Baruzzi. So much had the Church's iron grip weakened by this time that the end of the Papacy was being openly prophesied, and these predictions seemed to be confirmed when, in 1809, Napoleon Bonaparte stripped Pope Pius VII of his temporal sovereignty and had him taken prisoner. For this reason, many of Nostradamus' commentators have equated Napoleon with the"second Antichrist"Who would, according to the Epistle, "persecute the Church and its true Vicar."And, indeed, in view of the three historical crises of the Papacy — the Reformation, the French Revolution, and the end of the current Millennium — it is quite logical to assign one of the Prophet's three Antichrist's to each era.

Like most of Nostradamus' images, however, the"Collective Advent" has a dialectical meaning, i.e. simultaneously invoking opposing qualities. In one sense, the phrase does relate to the various political movements — of which French Jacobinism was the prototype — which have sought to forcibly unify humanity within the structure of the modern Nation-State. Viewed from this perspective, the final collapse of this"Vulgar"Advent was unequivocally foreshadowed in the Epistle, where it marks a key watershed in the unfolding of apocalyptic events at the end of this, the Seventh Millennium:

.".. thereafter extreme changes, reversals in realms and mighty earthquakes, along with a teeming new Babylon, miserable daughter enlarged by the abomination of the first Holocaust, which will last for only 73 years and 7 months" ( 25)

It is nothing less than astounding that the foregoing passage not only gives an apt description of the Soviet Union — the"new Babylon", quintessential historical incarnation of the"Vulgar Advent", whose empire was expanded by the Second World War and Nazi Holocaust — but it goes on to predict, with virtual pinpoint accuracy, the actual time span from the founding of the Bolshevik State in 1917 to the formal dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991! Nonetheless, one cannot truly understand the prophecies of Nostradamus by taking account of only the darker side of his dialectical imagery. It is just this type of one-dimensional interpretation which over the years has unjustly cloaked the prophet's message in the somber mantle of"gloom and doom", when the fact of the matter is that he actually foretold not the"End of the World", but a tumultuous transition to a new"Golden Age." Understandably, many of the institutions of the world as we know it will be radically transformed or totally swept away in this tidal wave of change, and the dislocations brought on by the precipitous collapse of these institutions will surely be a cause of temporary suffering for many. But the end-result envisioned by Nostradamus is entirely consistent with the visions of Daniel and Revelation: i.e., the"Apocalypse"Is destined to accomplish the"cleansing"of consciousness which will uncover the spiritual universe in the fullness of its infinite splendor.

Taken in its supernal rather than historical vein, then, the "Collective Advent"Is exactly what the words imply — the Advent of the God-Man in the form of a transfigured human race, its ageless dream of transcendent unity finally fulfilled in the attainment of Collective Mind, Body and Spirit. Looking back at Nostradamus' references to the 18th Century as the onset of this Great Transition, moreover, we should recall that this same period produced not only the Enlightenment, with its deification of Reason, but also the visionary poetry of William Blake, who saw"Jesus"As the metaphysical Body of a spiritually-integrated Divine Humanity. The"Collective Advent", therefore, is the New Jerusalem, the Millennial city of Blake's poetry, an ecstatic realm which has always been within and all around us, but has remained inaccessible to a false consciousness which arbitrarily partitions the mental and physical worlds and atomizes the organic Oneness of mankind.

What, then, are we to make of a"spiritual"doctrine which teaches the"sanctity of the individual human being"? In truth, the "Individual human being"Is a dwarfed, misshapen wretch, who was torn from the Body of the God-Man when humanity fell from Grace — blind to the immensity of his true spiritual nature, an impotent thing at the mercy of the lifeless mechanical universe which his dissociated consciousness has conjured up! Even a superficial understanding of the prophets would suffice to warn that the fragmented"Individual"Identity which keeps Man in exile from his Higher Self will be the very dross to be consumed in the"refiner's fire"of the coming transformation."

Apokalypso: The Fall Of The Papacy


"What is this that I am, I do not know."Man is a riddle to himself; he is a mystery he cannot decipher. Man is an"I am," he is a spark of being, he is real, but he does not know who he is because the very faculty he is endowed with, the very power he has, his mind, is what reveals to him that he is and conceals from him who he is. It is by his mind that Man wanders about; it is by his mind that Man recognizes his human condition and that he is free because he knows that he is; but that very mind is for him a burden, almost a prison in which he is secluded. He cannot fly beyond, because it is his own mind that makes the space available and sets the limits to his own incursion into reality; the mind is the organ he has in order to discover reality and even to be real. This is the first distich. Man is because he thinks, and he is because he thinks to be. No pretension is possible here. Thinking and being are not identical, but they are so intrinsically correlated that in Man there is not the one without the other. Man cannot escape the"space"of his own consciousness or transcend the"time"of his own being."

Professor R. Panikkar, The Vedic Experience


"If you strive to find the Self by using your mind, you will strive and strive in vain, because the mind cannot give you the Truth; a lie cannot give you truth. A lie can only entangle you in a web of deceit. But if you sensitize yourself, awaken your true, fine, beautiful qualities that all of you have, then you become a channel, a chalice in which your effulgent being will begin to shine. You will first think that a light is shining within you. You will seek to find that light. You will seek to hold it as you cherish and hold a beautiful gem. You will later find that the light that you found within you is in every pore, every cell of your body. You will later find that that light permeates every atom of the universe. You will later find that you are that light and what it permeates is the unreal illusion created by the mind."

Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami, September 1997


"collective unconscious: term introduced by psychiatrist Carl Jung to represent a form of the unconscious (that part of the mind containing memories and impulses of which the individual is not aware) common to mankind as a whole and originating in the inherited structure of the brain. It is distinct from the personal unconscious, which arises from the experience of the individual. According to Jung, the collective unconscious contains archetypes, or universal primordial images and ideas."

Britannica Online, 1994-1998 Encyclopaedia Britannica, Inc.


"I am born at this Time where I have to do this job of telling you that you must get your transformation. This is a very difficult job from all others. At the time of the Devi when She came, She had to kill the raksasas (demons). The raksasas were separate and human beings were separate. So She could protect the human beings.

But today the raksasas have entered into the heads of human beings. It's a very difficult job to tell them that the raksasas have now gone into your head... . The freedom given to human beings at the time of Adam and Eve has deteriorated into this kind of humanity today.

And, when it comes to such a stage, then only a person becomes aware of himself that there is something wrong. What am I going to give my children? What am I doing? Where am I? And when such a question comes to mind that is the time where Mahalakshmi starts showing Her Light to you, that you have to seek the Truth. And when that seeking of Truth comes in, as William Blake has said, that men of God will seek the Truth and they will really become men of God. A special category of seekers will be born at this Time, and they will make others men of God.

So Sahaja Yoga is being built slowly in an evolutionary process through many sages, scientists and seers — and through many incarnations. And it's all within ourselves. The whole world is within ourselves. All these great things are also within us.

The human being is not an ignoble being. He is the epitome of all evolution. He is not a person to be degraded. Only thing is his ignorance. In ignorance a rope seems a snake. Unless there is light you cannot see the rope. So I would not call anybody guilty, whatsoever. Whatever a person has done, he can get his transformation because his Spirit is still there — shining! It's just clouded with many things. And if somebody can by any chance move those clouds the sun, that is the Spirit, will shine forth ...

So the happening is of the breakthrough of human awareness into a New Dimension, about which Jung has written, that is, Collective Consciousness which has to be actualization and becoming, and not just talking. They become real brothers and sisters in the sense they become part and parcel of the Whole ... that human beings will know that they are in the Kingdom of God."

THE APOCALYPSE OF THE SPIRIT-PARACLETE
The fulfillment of the promised divine eschatological instruction
“The original meaning of the word ‘apocalypse’, derived from the Greek apokalypsis, is in fact not the cataclysmic end of the world, but an ‘unveiling’, or ‘revelation’, a means whereby one gains insight into the present.” (Kovacs, 2013, 2) An apocalypse (Greek: apokalypsis meaning “an uncovering”) is in religious contexts knowledge or revelation, a disclosure of something hidden, “a vision of heavenly secrets that can make sense of earthly realities.” (Ehrman 2014, 59)
Shri Mataji
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi (1923-2011) was Christian by birth, Hindu by marriage, and Paraclete by duty.
“The Paraclete will come (15:26; 16:7, 8, 13) as Jesus has come into the world (5:43; 16:28; 18:37)... The Paraclete will take the things of Christ (the things that are mine, ek tou emou) and declare them (16:14-15). Bishop Fison describes the humility of the Spirit, 'The true Holy Spirit of God does not advertise Herself: She effaces Herself and advertises Jesus.' ...
It is by the outgoing activity of the Spirit that the divine life communicates itself in and to the creation. The Spirit is God-in-relations. The Paraclete is the divine self-expression which will be and abide with you, and be in you (14:16-17). The Spirit's work is described in terms of utterance: teach you, didasko (14:26), remind you, hypomimnesko (14:26), testify, martyro (15:26), prove wrong, elencho (16:8), guide into truth, hodego (16:13), speak, laleo (16:13, twice), declare, anangello (16:13, 14, 15). The johannine terms describe verbal actions which intend a response in others who will receive (lambano), see (theoreo), or know (ginosko) the Spirit. Such speech-terms link the Spirit with the divine Word. The Spirit's initiatives imply God's personal engagement with humanity. The Spirit comes to be with others; the teaching Spirit implies a community of learners; forgetful persons need a prompter to remind them; one testifies expecting heed to be paid; one speaks and declares in order to be heard. The articulate Spirit is the correlative of the listening, Spirit-informed community.
The final Paraclete passage closes with a threefold repetition of the verb she will declare (anangello), 16:13-15. The Spirit will declare the things that are to come (v.13), and she will declare what is Christ's (vv. 14, 15). The things of Christ are a message that must be heralded...
The intention of the Spirit of truth is the restoration of an alienated, deceived humanity... The teaching role of the Paraclete tends to be remembered as a major emphasis of the Farewell Discourses, yet only 14:26 says She will teach you all things. (Teaching is, however, implied when 16:13-15 says that the Spirit will guide you into all truth, and will speak and declare.) Franz Mussner remarks that the word used in 14:26, didaskein, "means literally 'teach, instruct,' but in John it nearly always means to reveal.” (Stevick 2011, 292-7)

“This utopian hope, even when modestly expressed, links Jesus and the prophets to a much wider history of human longing.”
Harvey Cox, The Future of Faith

“Because of the presence of the Paraclete in the life of the believer, the blessings of the end-times—the eschaton—are already present.”
Robert Kysar, John

“They are going, by the Holy Spirit's power, to be part of the greatest miracle of all, bringing men to salvation.”
R. Picirilli, The Randall House Bible Commentary

“The Kingdom of God stands as a comprehensive term for all that the messianic salvation included... is something to be sought here and now (Mt. 6:33) and to be received as children receive a gift (Mk. 10:15 = Lk. 18:16-17).”
G. Ladd, A Theology of the New Testament


“But today is the day I declare that I am the one who has to save the humanity. I declare I am the one who is Adishakti, who is the Mother of all the Mothers, who is the Primordial Mother, the Shakti, the desire of God, who has incarnated on this Earth to give its meaning to itself; to this creation, to human beings and I am sure through My Love and patience and My powers I am going to achieve it.

I was the one who was born again and again. But now in my complete form and complete powers I have come on this Earth not only for salvation of human beings, not only for their emancipation, but for granting them the Kingdom of Heaven, the joy, the bliss that your Father wants to bestow upon you.”

“The main thing that one has to understand is that the time has come for you to get all that is promised in the scriptures, not only in the Bible but all all the scriptures of the world. The time has come today that you have to become a Christian, a Brahmin, a Pir, through your Kundalini awakening only. There is no other way. And that your Last Judgment is also now.”

“You see, the Holy Ghost is the Mother. When they say about the Holy Ghost, She is the Mother... Now, the principle of Mother is in every, every scripture — has to be there.

“The Kundalini is your own mother; your individual mother. And She has tape-recorded all your past and your aspirations. Everything! And She rises because She wants to give you your second birth. But She is your individual mother. You don't share Her with anybody else. Yours is a different, somebody else's is different because the tape-recording is different. We say She is the reflection of the Adi Shakti who is called as Holy Ghost in the Bible.”

Press Conference July 08 1999—London, UK

The Great Goddess is both wholly transcendent and fully immanent: beyond space and time, she is yet embodied within all existent beings; without form as pure, infinite consciousness (cit) ... She is the universal, cosmic energy known as Sakti, and the psychophysical, guiding force designated as the Kundalini (Serpent Power) resident within each individual. She is eternal, without origin or birth, yet she is born in this world in age after age, to support those who seek her assistance. Precisely to provide comfort and guidance to her devotees, she presents herself in the Devi Gita to reveal the truths leading both to worldly happiness and to the supreme spiritual goals: dwelling in her Jeweled Island and mergence into her own perfect being.” (Brown, 1998, 2)
