What George Orwell had so acutely observed seventy years ago, escapes this current administration and for the most part the European community. Young people want adventure and a cause. Here in the US we are complacent and we have lack of spirituality and grit. Of course you will argue with me that, “oh, but we are spiritual, we meditate, we pray”, after all there are so many venues, churches, meditation groups etc to confuse the youth who has some “itch to be scratched” . So why is that we have our youth joining a death cult, based on erroneous and evil interpretation of Islam? Why the youth wants socialism in America, akin to EU style welfare state, in their acts they yearn the opposite. Basic human nature is to get involved with something bigger than ourselves, something spiritual and Historic, impacting our social and spiritual maladies as society. The EU is just as rotten than beltway of Washington, DC.
There is no easy answer but this should be a warning to the establishment, things are brewing in the air and sooner or later change is coming! Times are no different today that they were before 1848 Imperial Europe where the French revolution triggered fear and apprehension all across the continent of Europe. Here is what Orwell wrote about Hitler;
“Hitler has grasped the falsity of the hedonistic attitude to life. Nearly all western thought since the last war, certainly all “progressive” thought, has assumed tacitly that human beings desire nothing beyond ease, security, and avoidance of pain. In such a view of life there is no room, for instance, for patriotism and the military virtues. The Socialist who finds his children playing with soldiers is usually upset, but he is never able to think of a substitute for the tin soldiers; tin pacifists somehow won’t do. Hitler, because in his own joyless mind he feels it with exceptional strength, knows that human beings don’t only want comfort, safety, short working-hours, hygiene, birth-control and, in general, common sense; they also, at least intermittently, want struggle and self-sacrifice, not to mention drums, flag and loyalty-parades…. Whereas Socialism, and even capitalism in a grudging way, have said to people “I offer you a good time,” Hitler has said to them “I offer you struggle, danger and death,” and as a result a whole nation flings itself at his feet.
My fear (and sadly prediction) is that ISIL came and it will be gone, but as ISIL took the baton from Al Qaeda, there is something will replace ISIL as ideology. Less murderous perhaps, less dogmatic of Sharia. Our ways are of the dinosaurs, we do not have capitalism anymore nor democracy. Furthermore, we also have lost our soul.Share on Facebook

There is a link between super sensitivity/spirituality and bipolar and /schizophrenia in the context of hearing voices/seeing things and elevated importance(delusional thinking) or being persecuted. Past life memories or acknowledgment is not specifically mental illness clue unless it accompanies much of the above (feeling persecuted, elevated importance, hearing voices and seeing things such as aura etc).
Two years ago I was told I was bipolar II (or Cyclothymia) and I indeed had some delusional experiences when I “found out” about my possible past life as Austin Spare. I will not specifically get into details but I will say my delusional thinking was rather oblique and mild compared to some. This however does not invalidate the realness and factual nature of reincarnation and the existence of some mental illness among its midst.
I think what is considered to be “real” and not is often determined by idiots and charlatans. I dislike the word mental illness even as I have to accept that is unfortunately all too real. I am not taking any medication. now (only occasional sleeping pills) and I am often ostracized and criticized for this by my peers who are brainwashed by the medical establishment doing the bidding of big pharma. Having said this, I know from going to a support group that some of us need the medication just to survive and function daily.
After, my spiritual teacher and I have parted ways I have decided to study Hermetic philosophy and naturally what followed was hermetic magic. It was a great eye opener to me but it lead me to assume some false assumptions.Share on Facebook
After being diagnosed I have stopped writing here and I was now afraid of my spiritual side because, now it equated to me delusional thinking and inflated ego, both tell-tales of bipolar mania.
