Can't Wipe Me Out? Then Go For The Next Best Thing,...

You've gotta love Helena "Big Eyes" Blavatsky, The Mother of NewAge, if only for nothing other than how fucking all-around batty she was. On the other hand, you can reasonably also hate her guts for all the trouble she started amongst the pea-brained. What do I mean? Let's turn to Wikipedia's "Aryan Race" page and find her writings that got the Nazis all KILL! KILL! KILL!:
"Esoteric history teaches that idols and their worship died out with the Fourth Race, until the survivors of the hybrid races of the latter (Chinamen, African Negroes, c.) gradually brought the worship back. The Vedas countenance no idols; all the modern Hindu writings do". 
"The intellectual difference between the Aryan and other civilized nations and such savages as the South Sea Islanders, is inexplicable on any other grounds. No amount of culture, nor generations of training amid civilization, could raise such human specimens as the Bushmen, the Veddhas of Ceylon, and some African tribes, to the same intellectual level as the Aryans, the Semites, and the Turanians so called. The 'sacred spark' is missing in them and it is they who are the only inferior races on the globe, now happily -- owing to the wise adjustment of nature which ever works in that direction -- fast dying out. Verily mankind is 'of one blood,' but not of the same essence. We are the hot-house, artificially quickened plants in nature, having in us a spark, which in them is latent". 
According to Blavatsky, "the MONADS of the lowest specimens of humanity (the "narrow-brained" savage South-Sea Islander, the African, the Australian) had no Karma to work out when first born as men, as their more favoured brethren in intelligence had". She also prophecies of the destruction of the racial "failures of nature" as the future "higher race" ascends: 
"Thus will mankind, race after race, perform its appointed cycle-pilgrimage. Climates will, and have already begun, to change, each tropical year after the other dropping one sub-race, but only to beget another higher race on the ascending cycle; while a series of other less favoured groups -- the failures of nature -- will, like some individual men, vanish from the human family without even leaving a trace behind".

Got that? Genocide AND the "science" of climate change, all in one paragraph! Who'da thunk it? This NewAge is really something to behold (And why isn't Blavatsky's name ever brought up in "global warming" discussions?) Needless to say, if she was the Mother of NewAge, "Dad" - in the form of Adolf Let's-speed-up-that-lesser-races-vanishing-act Hitler - was going to be a hoot!

And, in case you thought this "thinking" died out with Blavatsky and old bullet-to-the-head, let me remind you of this exchange with the current holder of the Mother of NewAge title, Louise "Skull Face" Hay, publisher of the inspirationally NewAge "Hay House" books:
When I asked her if, since people’s thoughts are responsible for their conditions, victims of genocide might be to blame for their own deaths, she said: “I probably wouldn’t say it to them. That’s not what I’m after.” 
I pressed harder: Did she believe they are to blame? “Yes,...” 
So, I asked, with a situation like the Holocaust, the victims might have been an unfortunate group of souls who deserved what they got because of their behavior in past lives? “Yes,..."
I swear, finding sickness in the NewAge movement is like shooting fish in a barrel. (And I still find it bizarre that, after she said that, there's still no condemnation or outcry - times don't change that much, do they?) BTW, as I read further down that Wikipedia "Aryan Race" page, I found this revealing line:
Samael Aun Weor published a book in 1967 retitled in 2008 The Doomed Aryan Race in which he asserted that the Aryan "Root Race" is doomed to be destroyed by hydrogen bombs unless the people of the Aryan race learn tantric yoga.

So, NewAge racial theory not only explains past genocide, but familiar scenes of today:

Good God, Hippies - "save" yourselves,…


  1. Thought I'd share these because 1) they're so goofy and creepy at the same time that you just have to laugh; 2) it is on topic (and gives an insight into my own insights into Ann Romney: there's a lot of batshit crazy in the horse world, it's only a matter of varying degrees...maybe it's an Aryan thing, LOL!); 3) yes, sadly animals and humans suffer, die, or at least are screwed completely almost on a daily basis due to magickal thinking and failure to face reality:

    Martita Goshen, Interpretive Dancer - on Barbaro*:

    "Barbaro was in many dimensions," she says. "He looked at the whole picture. That's why he had that stumble at the Derby. He was ahead of the moment. The Zen of that. That's dancing. For the rest of my life, I'll be working to move with that innocence." Many years ago on a voyage off the coast of San Diego, she came face to face with the eye of a whale. She saw all of humanity in that eye, the rise and fall of civilizations, love, hate, power, glory, ugliness, beauty, lies, truth. This realization has taken her all over the planet, trying to help save the creatures she holds dear by raising environmental awareness. ... "[Barbaro] a great messenger," she said. "He's the greatest dancer I've seen since Baryshnikov or Nureyev."

    "I was just as terrified when I met Barbaro as when I met the Dalai Lama," she says.

    Yoga for horses baby...

  2. Here's another (from a blog site a friend has or had, during the height of the Friends of Barbaro craze, which is still in existence):

    You people are SICK. For God so love the world, he gave us BARBARO, who died for our sins. I'm an FOB and proud of it. I love BARBARO and the CANDLE SITE where he is appreciated. He has more candles than those dead HATIANS. That PROVES BARBARO is loved more than people.
    Light a candle instead of bashing ALEX BROWN, GREG J and all of Saint BARBARO's followers.
    DEAR BARBARO died 3 years ago, pray for him and light a candle instead of hating.

    My friend was making fun of people who are treating a dead race horse (still to this day it appears) as some sort of ascended being.
    ...and let me tell you, these folks are no joking matter; they have stalked and threatened people for "blasphemy", started horse rescues (always with accompanying pleas for donations) that wound up with animals dying of neglect, tried to ruin people's careers, left spouses and children for "the cause", been conned/cheated/swindled to the point of bankruptcy due to their beliefs.

    All for a decent, not great, just decent racehorse who, sad though it was, broke down some years back and had to be euthanized....
    Welcome to the batshit crazy fringe of my world -- enjoy.

  3. Yikes!

    That's some serious crazy right there!
