I was reading an interesting article today about an unseen war that is going on between the forces of Light and Darkness. For some might seem unrealistic or some kind of a conspiracy theory but if we reflect on our history as humans we will see that this war is going on for a long time.
Since the old times, many people have been persecuted for their believes and practices, anything that was not coming from the mainstream religion was called cult and heresy and was ostracised and persecuted as well. For a long time small esoteric/spiritual groups were operating in secrecy because of fear. It is sad to realize that the main stream religions (which talk about love and forgiveness) killed so many millions of people in the name of the “right doctrine” i.e. crusades, burning people and villages and so on and the some are still killing people even today in the name of God or Allah. Today there is still modern day indirect persecution of small spiritual groups, called cults. Yes, I agree that there are dangerous groups and people out there but not all are!! Yet the persecution is still going on stopping small sincere groups from teaching people simple and useful things like how to live in the present moment, how to study our dreams, how to come out of our body, how to meditate and relax, how to establish a connection with God and how to deal with our problems and difficulties.
Today they are blocking our freedoms and we do nothing :(. Did you know that the Open Rights Group reported that they have already blocked websites and organizations promoting “esoteric practices” directly or indirectly from some phones? https://wiki.openrightsgroup.org/wiki/Orange_Safeguard.
There is also an announcement that they will block pornographic material from the internet, in the UK, but they do not mention that along with this material (which I agree that we need to block) they are blocking other categories as well, one being “esoteric practices” (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/07/29/uk-internet-filter-block-more-than-porn_n_3670771.html ).
It really makes me wonder: Why are they censoring small groups and esoteric information like this? As I mentioned, I understand that a few groups have been fake and dangerous but not all are and some are practical and honest and really helpful. If we think about it, Jesus the time he was teaching, he was not part of the mainstream Jewish faith, he brought to the world a new, more practical and loving teaching and was called a heretic. And look how this beautiful divine teaching was spread in to the world…and look how it has been unfortunately used by some people to harm and to gain power and money…
It really makes me wonder, who is to decide to block me and you from finding sincere spiritual/esoteric groups and practical information and why? Meditating, concentrating, improving myself, having my own direct esoteric experiences is my freedom, my choice but it stops being one once they block me from finding it.
Where is the free will and my freedom in this? Avatars like Jesus, Mohamed and Buddha talked about free will and freedom and embraced it. Who is trying to do the opposite here? Who is behind all this? Am I really free in the society I am living in? Do I have a choice? Or am I just one pon, thinking I am free?
If they censor spiritual groups in the UK, I think there is a big chance it can spread all over the globe. It seems to me that there is an agenda and I hope I am wrong. It is frightening and I just hope they change their mind. I just hope it never happens for our sake.
