First off, Usko, it takes a lot of courage to write a post like this.. so I salute you!
However personally I'm somewhat on the same page as Rosinitiate on this one.
I had a really unpleasant encounter with John Lash, and in fact personally disagree
with 90% of anything he writes or communicates. His personality makes mine look
"cuddly" in comparison, once you get to know him. But that's just my impression.
I suppose I've posted more on this subject, in my own manner, than most people
on ATS, though I've not used the classic terms much.
This is in fact a very difficult subject..it deeply involves issues such as 'good and evil'
and 'free will', which to me at least, are not at all like the stereotypical and wishful
thinking versions that most people use.
I myself find the 'shared responsibility model' quite useful. Yes, 'Archons' exist and
they deeply influence humans.. but humans deeply influence 'Archons' as well..
the two seem joined at the hip. And no matter what 'Archonic' influence exists,
at least for me, I've had tremendous 'apparent' free will to not be influenced, for
great periods of time.. although there have been times that I've been deceived.
I myself have had contact with what would be called 'Archonic entities', literally my
entire life. I loathe them, and they fear me. I find them to be at the root of all
religion and mysticism.. and as you've said yourself, shamans are particularly
familiar with them.
Yes, we seem to be awash in a sea of Archons, and the human tendencies of a broad
swath of humanity are quite repugnant all on their own. It would be VERY easy to
assume that Earth is Hell itself. I nearly cannot argue with this assessment.
However I've always had close contact with what would be called by humans "a very
powerful good" as well... but this force has been even more enigmatic and puzzling
than this sea of 'evil'.
There is a reason that people have been confused about such issues for endless
ages of time. Everyone wants to explain it all in a few paragraphs, so that their
weary hearts and minds can know rest in 'truth'. But I'm afraid that it's not our lot
in life to understand such things very well yet. It may take a million years before
we figure this stuff out properly.. and science would be deeply involved, which it
currently is not.
I for one, find the 'stock' Gnostic / Sophia material to be 3/4 an invention of the
'Archons' and their brethren, the human imagination.
Now, I too came to ATS because I had NEVER 'believed in UFOs' and then saw one
up close in my face. In fact I learned quite a lot from this fellow here on ATS who
quite dislikes me, "The Gut". His brilliant research and the works of John Keel and
Jacques Vallee and others showed me pieces of the big picture that i had been
missing...how strange and wonderful that topics revolving around 'UFOs', 'abductions'
and 'cattle mutilations' were in fact big clues to purely 'spiritual events' with a little
military collusion thrown in. Also John Keel's comments about Men in Black -- priceless.
I guess I'd just like to close this response, with the observation that there is a mountain
of understanding that we are missing, and that ANY source (including me) which thinks
it can explain the whole phenomenon AT THIS TIME should be taken with a grain of
salt. This 'issue' is one of the make or break issues for the entire human race; it's
going to take a while, and our best collective research and work.. or perhaps 'this issue'
will bury us.. and that's why there is this 'great silence' in the universe.. perhaps 'this issue'
is the gating issue for ALL organic species.. perhaps this is why we are 'all alone'... we are
smothered by this energetic blanket of deception, that we in part have created.
