In her book, High Strangeness, Laura Knight-Jadcyk prefaces Gurdjieff's famous tale about the Evil Magician as a syllogism for spiritual hypnotism under the Alpha-Draconian overlords. In this particularly dark and at times bleak book, the author has given a realistic appraisal of both present-day spirituality and the war against humanity's spiritual Ascension. Were it not for the recent positive news by the likes of Alex Collier and Tolec, there would be little to aspire a spiritual warrior toward continuing the process of grounding the cosmic energies which are inducing the shift from 3-D to 4-D life.
As Voltaire once remarked, 'Humanly speaking, let us define truth, while waiting for a better definition, as a statement of facts as they are.' It behooves any spiritual worker to accept the truth that 'bringing in the light' and the accessory use of candles, crystals and mantras are ineffective at dealing with the realities of the dark energies of the universe. Rather than looking up for Ascension, it would be better to look in, and face the daily challenges head-on if we wish to anchor ourselves in present reality rather than being hypnotised by some far-off spiritual goal. Denying that there is a dark side, not only in ourselves but in the universe reflected outside ourselves, only serves to enhances the negative aspect of the universe and empower the forces that wish to subvert our ascension into dominance. Denial only leads to subservience to the pre-existing rule by Alpha-Draconianism, militarism, tyranny and slavery.
As Knight-Jadcyk remarks in her book, 'The ability to deny is an amazing human phenomenon... a product of sheer complexity of our emotional, linguistic, moral and intellectual lives.'
The Evil Magician:
A very rich magician had a great many sheep. But at the same time, this magician was very mean. He did not want to hire shepherds, nor did he want to erect a fence about the pasture where his sheep were grazing. The sheep consequently often wandered into the forest, fell into ravines, and so on, and above all they ran way, for they knew that the magician wanted their flesh and skins and this they did not like.
At last the magician found a remedy. He hypnotised his sheep and suggested to them first of all that they were immortal and that no harm was being done to them when they were skinned. On the contrary, it would be very good for them and even pleasant. Secondly, he suggested that the magician was a good master who loved his flock so much that he was ready to do anything in the world for them. In the third place, he suggested to them that if anything at all were going to happen to them that it was not going to happen just then, at any rate not that day, and therefore they had no need to think about it. Further, the magician suggested to his sheep that they were not sheep at all; to some of them he suggested that they were lions, to others that they were eagles, to others that they were men, and to others that they were magicians.
After this all his cares and worries about the sheep came to an end. They never ran away again but quietly awaited the time when the magician would require their flesh and skins.
Alex Collier gives us hope in this midst of these uncharted and worrying times, this darkness that pre-empts the dawning of Ascension. In this present time, when the virtuous soul is nearly always harassed or tormented for speaking up against tyranny, the dream or drama ends with the virtuous achieving victory. The final battle is not with those things outside of ourselves, but with the reluctant shadows of fear, lack of self-love and ignorance.
