Where to begin?
Delving into a subject that stirs intense emotion and creates, in some believers, unswerving loyalty is a dangerous thing, especially when personal
knowledge of the subject is deliberately limited. So, is it wise, or even correct, for me to question the subject matter in the title of this post,
considering that I have openly declared my “ignorance”? That would depend on why I am doing it.
Without a complete understanding of its ethos, can I legitimately criticise this emerging belief system simply because its adherents continue to ply
us with page after page of unfounded, unverifiable data, that, or the inter-linked stories that abound on the web that seemingly support a
self-replicating mythology, or even the vociferous and constant defence of this “religion” by its acolytes? Most would say no, and rightly so,
because to successfully evaluate any religiously orientated meme, in theory one has to appreciate its inner message to fashion a valid judgment. Even
if the subject is uncomfortable, or clashes with personal beliefs, an understanding is necessary.
But what if the “word” this Space Brotherhood professes, for want of a better title, is simply a rehash of older, far more ingrained teachings
brought up to date, having been polished and reshaped for a spiritually barren and dispossessed modern world? And if that original message, in all its
many, contradictory forms, continues to divide us on a global scale, what hope a new version that is even more extreme in its provenance?
This is my problem with all channelled “entities”, and their associated organisations.
If we entertain for the briefest moment that there is even the smallest grain of truth behind all the tales of Lightworkers/Lightwarriors/Ashtar
Command etc., then I am truly terrified. To me, these attempts at proclaiming message of intergalactic love and peace fall so far short of success
that they may as well not have bothered. And the reason behind this is that they certainly do not seem to have originated from beings that have
attained higher levels of consciousness.
On reading websites that promote these communications, and I’ve read many, all I hear is the calculated rhetoric of control together with blatant
attempts at counteracting and distracting from their lack of content by using a continuing theme that runs through virtually all of these channelled
commandments; distrust. Deny the negative nay-sayers, ignore criticism, listen to the words from above.
Only we can save you.
Only our message is right.
Any other is from the dark side, from the ones who would enslave.
Odd, isn’t it, that this form of communication in itself is a manner of enslavement. It’s projected, verbal OCD. Ignore it, and something awful
will befall you. Time and again, these “messages” from various Light-Beings simply convey the continuing need for obedience, or suffer the
consequences. “Trust in us,” they say, “and we shall come to save you.”
Grand prophecies come and go with absolutely no sign of fulfilment, yet there is no backlash, just devoted fawning over the resulting limp excuses of
miraculously changed time-lines and the true power of faith in those who have the biggest star-ships.
What clashes nauseatingly with this parade of hollow assurances is the underlying topic of the spreading of love. This is cynicism in the extreme, as
in itself this pursuit is a fundamental objective of all humans, though not always undertaken for the right reasons. At the behest of remote,
space-faring gods it just smacks of desperation, repetition and unoriginality. This is where the channelled messages fall down, because I believe they
come not from superior, alien intellects, but from domineering human ones.
Even the most ignorant amongst us can concede, no matter how reluctantly, that simple respect and support for our fellow beings is paramount for our
survival. Love already exists in abundance on this planet, even if it is sometimes misdirected. Often we misspell it as greed. But what we forget is
that love can be seen in every humanitarian action, and there are billions happening every day, in every rebellious soul that stands up against
tyranny, even if they are alone, in every thought and action of every normal, decent human being, irrelevant of their creed or skin colour.
We are built to love. So why and teach us something that we already know?
What should we be hearing for this sceptic, and many others, to take notice? That is not for me to say, as to do so would be crossing a line. But to
narrow it down, I will say that I need to hear a message that transcends the normality of existence. Words are powerful things. Considering these
Space Brothers are supposedly advanced in ways that we would consider approaching the divine, their grasp of the spoken word is sorely lacking. This
cannot be ignored.
Why can they not proclaim something that appeals to all intellects, something that crosses the confused boundaries of language and differing faiths to
draw us together as a single, cohesive species; a spoken rosetta stone? Why? Because everything we read from them is a result of the educational
system the respective channellers went through. If you ain’t smart, you don’t write smart. Creative and prolific they may be, but innovative they
ain’t. And it shows.
Now, I await the expected backlash from the faithful. I questioned at the beginning of this post if I have the right to express my difficulty with
this subject, even though I haven’t bothered to delve any deeper than just below the surface of their credo. There is a reason why I can answer that
in the affirmative:
There is nothing else to see and this is why I question.
