Al

Doesn't sound like good news. Officially what is the Vatican trying to do to stop or prevent this?

I'm not privy to that, Al!

Interesting. Just found your blog so I'm not really familiar with your writing or your book. However, you probably already know about Ignacius of LOyola? The Jesuit founder became an expert on mind control as a result of his leg injury.

A lot of spiritual exercises seem to border on mysticism.

Jonathan said,
"As a young man Pope John Paul II had made spiritual exercises devised by Rudolf Steiner. I intend nothing but good by saying that, and I'm certain that nothing but good came of it."

Hmmmmmm. Doesn't surprise me, but wondered if you have more info that would prove that?

The sources avaliable tell us that Woijtyla was part of a theatral group whose leader was involved in Steiner's work. As such he adviced his followers to study Steiner's John Gospel lectures.
many years after, few years befor passing, John Paul II was seen often with the "Tarot's Meditation book in his hand. This book was from a Valentin Tomberg, a baltic philospher and esotericist who, before becoming an hermeticist-catholic, wrote several essays of Anthroposophical contents.

Mitteleuropeo,

I enjoyed your post but find myself in disagreement on sme aspects. I feel you are still far off on the anti-christ in my opinion. The cardinal is not creative enough to aspire to false prophet. Its important to remember that clergy are not leaders. They are followers of self-interest. If confronted with leadership, they would wilt. They are likely to be obsolete in the next decade.

Additionally, tarot teachings in the hand of a Pope should not come as a surprise. Tarot cards are closer in origin of purpose than today's current version of cards. Know that all cards have purpose. I have a little blip on it in my upcoming book. Essentially today's version of cards has the ace of ascension starting the purposeful numbers of 1-9. Jack, queen and king are oppressors who can change destiny. Ten is false hope and not a real number in numerology. As your cards play out in poker or any other game, they weave messages of spirit that aren't any different than ouija, marrakech, or tarot. (This info. is trademarked but you may quote me.)

P.S. Jonathan Black, I loved your book

Yes, the antichrist is among us. He was born on April 20, 1970, helped into incarnation by the so-called "religious offering" performed 9 months previously (July 20, 1969 ) on the moon by Aldrin, a freemason. This ceremony is mentioned in his autobiography and there's more about this Osiris/Isis/Horus ceremony in chapter 5 of "Dark Mission" by Hoagland.

Maryanne, if you want evidence of this great and holy man's well-developed interest in Rudolf Steiner, consider that his first book was published with an intro by a leading Anthroposophist. Later editions dropped it, I believe, but i'd like to think he himself never denied Steiner and that this was his publisher's decision.

Mitteleuropeo - many thanks for your post. I'm very glad to hear the information about JP II and Tomberg. Of course there's some dispute as to how much Tomberg was influenced by Steiner but no-one disputes there was an influence. Tomber's book is a wonderful treasury of Chrisitan esoteric lore, and I heartily recommend it.

Thanks very much for that, Ivan. I'm not sure if the clergy will become obsolete in the near future, but I certainly agree that there is a great spiritual hunger, a hunger for personal religious experience - and may people are not turning to the Church to find it.

Exotissima! I've replied to your post at the top.

I don't quite know how to reach Mark Booth and can only hope that you read this. I bought The Secret History back in September 2010 and I'm just about to finish my third reading of it. As I've written elsewhere, when a book answers questions you have not yet asked then it requires serious consideration. I love the book, it has opened up so much for me and through it I met Lorna Byrne albeit briefly and at a book signing. Anyhow, on page 569 you write about 'Schools of management that pretend they work for the benefit of employees, but which are really only designed to try and persuade us to give over every last drop off individual inner life.' You are right on the money here! And I am one of the working class dupes who bought into it and got done over into the 'bargain'! Anything you want to know about this kind of scam then I'm your man. Thanks again for the Secret History, Every time I open it, it gives me fresh eyes.
