So it is like he is pushing his religion onto the UFO phenomena.
Yes he did start out in Bahai. But he has also talked about people being "screwed up by conventional religiosity".
The concept of "One"-ness is more important here than any religious dogma IMO. Essentially, all matter, energy, space, time, life, and
consciousness, are all One - are all totally interconnected, are all different facets and manifestations of the One being (God), the One Mind.
And, according to Greer, this is not just a mystical or spiritual concept, but something that also has a scientific basis where you can eventually
work out the physics of it and actually develop technologies that make use of that Oneness. So eventually, Science and Spirituality will merge and
there will be no need for "religion" at all! Because that Oneness or "cosmic consciousness" is something that everyone will be able to experience
and know for themselves....
In that video I gave the title of abover he is saying that when he was younger he was meditating 6 to 8 hours a day.............? OMG
And says he levitated 3 feet and moved some few yards. Are we supposed to BELIEVE this cause he says it? Are we that gullible? And how do these
statments affect other stuff he claims?
Well, again, that's something that's been reported for thousands of years, not just the current era - but of course most people don't have 6-8
hours a day to spend on meditating in order to do it!
Should we believe it just because he says it? No. And actually, I wish he would keep quiet about things like that, even if it did really happen to
him, because there are much larger and more urgent issues that people should be focusing on, like NWO and the suppression of technology, and the
weaponization of space and wilful targeting of ET spacecrafts, etc. And talking about levitating is only going to turn people off, at least for
Thing is with this stuff, if your honest, you can feel a need to WANT to believe. You are aware what a pile of sh-- everything is, and need HOPE. SO
it is easy to be seduced by unsubstantiated BS.
You are right in that the world desperately needs some hope right about now!
And that is something I like about Greer. While many others are preaching the xenophobic and militaristic scenario of the "evil aliens" out to get
us, Greer is the one guy talking about a peaceful and positive future for Earth, in harmony with the ETs and the rest of the galaxy, and how we can
Of course, you can spin such a thing as Greer "seducing" gullible people who "want to believe and need hope". And indeed there are those on here
who like to portray him as a Cult leader and so on. But, by those criteria, ANY great teacher/leader who inspires and teaches a message of hope could
be considered a Cult leader!
