The Kali-Yuga ends


Some posit that Adolf Hitler took the form of an avatar of Kalki. The “annihilator of ignorance,” Kalki essentially raises flags in history for observers to see where humanity went off track. By waging destructive war with industrial weapons and committing genocide, they argue, Hitler showed us the raw core of modernity: ugliness and destruction.

While such comparisons may be off the mark, the meaning of someone’s actions can be greater than they understand them to be at the time. We say more than we intend. Our acts reveal what we are reacting to and the paradoxes of our age that remain inscrutable to us. The same can be said of the Allies. They certainly didn’t have sweetness and light in their hearts, and yet they may have been unknowingly serving a higher purpose.

Consider that the 20th century was marked by a fundamental clash that would define it. This clash brought into conflict those trying to hold on to the tiny fossilized fragments of past truths and those less spiritually developed but more in tune with new conditions. While the ancient past was a more spiritually developed age (but one of lower consciousness) the newer age possessed no such wisdom and yet provided great pragmatism in how it responded to present — and not eternal — conditions.

In the end knowledge in its essence cannot be destroyed, but it often must be torn down in its external manifestation to grow again from scratch in a new form. The grandparent must age and die for the infant to be born and flourish. Otherwise we would be doomed to stasis.

We stand on the edge of a great awakening. Take away easy prosperity, have a little more visible mortality and destroy the moral prestige of liberal democracy and political correctness: people start to think when that happens. They can no longer rely on these ideologies as reflecting practicality, but see the new age as now being as out-of-touch as Hitler was. Where Hitler was trying to restore the past with modern methods, we are now trying to perpetuate the post-modern era with modern methods that were more appropriate in 1789.

Unpacking this requires we look at the difference between form and spirit, much like the split between avatar and essence. The old traditions were eternally true in their original spirit but in their form were not suited to the ultimate destiny of the world. The light had gone out of them many centuries previously, and you simply had to see a winter before the spring. Their form and spirit had become confused, and people like Hitler were trying to make a static form out of an un-static spirit, and the result was disaster.

How else could you have seen a revival of civilization in regions that had gone dark and its introduction into areas that had never been civilized? Without a loss of nerve by the English, I don’t see how India could have begun to flourish (again). And because the mass of people are how they are, the only way to do it was for them to believe something that was false but served the purpose of providence, such as political correctness and liberal modernity. A dead zone needed to be created, much as a forest fire turns once-great trees into decay to nourish the next generation.

A return never happens. Even the fascists and national socialists did not attempt this and they were highly modern. Hitler notably pioneered equality of opportunity more than England or the USA in the 1920s and 30s. After death, renewal occurs, breathing new life into culture and institutions by taking the best from the past. This does not happen through mimickry, where wholesale imitation of spirit results in an inferior form that makes a mockery of its intent.

We see this unfolding already before our eyes currently. The Kali Yuga — the age of death and deceit comparable to the Norse ragnarok — is already over, and we are already in a transitional period. If you wonder why so much confusion afflicts us, look to this transition. The past served horror and death as a means of exiting a world where eternal truths no longer had relevance, and now in the ashes of the ruin and the toxic rain, we are the seedlings that rise toward the sun.

    I enjoyed reading this essay.

    “A dead zone needed to be created, much as a forest fire turns once-great trees into decay to nourish the next generation.”

    Trouble is (or maybe troublesome only to some parties), normal people find it impossible to forget that those trees were deliberately lit with a match by mentally ill pyromaniacs rather than burning down through forces of nature/hand of God (take your pick).

    “Their form and spirit had become confused, and people like Hitler were trying to make a static form out of an un-static spirit, and the result was disaster.”

    Allrighty, what’s your recipe? Facts and details, please. You can have an all-out, megadestructive Final War and guess what, we are still going to be the same flawed humans.

    Regarding “we are the seedlings that rise toward the sun” – who is “we”? Those of us who survive the final conflagration?

    How many times have you not heard praise of ‘civilization’ and the ‘civilized’ man? These city-builders and city-dwellers are universally praised as the most advanced of men. But are they? But were they really?

    The civilization we have in Europe today too was built by ‘mongrels’.
    First of all, take a look at cities today: who are drawn to them? Where do you find the most mongrels? Exactly: you find them almost exclusively in the cities.
    The natural habitat of the racially pure individual on the other hand is the pristine nature.
    Civilizations are horribly self-destructive: with time they all eventually fall.

      I’m curious, How is it that you define a “mongrel”?

      I’d like to know. The current available definition goes something like this:

      1. A dog with no definable breed or category

      2. A person with mixed inheritance

      I guess, in both cases, (“dog breed” being swapped with some “human label”) I can humbly, yet confidently, concle that I am a mongrel.
      Are you?

      Are you not an individual?
      Or are you simply a carbon copy, an imitation, a replication, simple-minded, easily defined, and entirely understandable?

      Complexity can be just as beautiful as simplicity, although they also can both be equally as frightening.

      I, myself, prefer to remain undefined.

      I am also curious about just what kind of “racial purity” you speak of,?
      What exactly do you mean by this? Exactly how “pure” is any race?

      What exactly is so wrong with human civilization? Truly? Civilizations have been destroyed, for sure, yet new and better ones were built to replace them. How “civilization” leads to illness or poor health, well I understand the theory, but the uncivilized are actually the most mentally ill and socially inept among us. They are not actual “illnesses” except when compared to the society and civilization in which they belong to. The most successful survival of an individual requires it’s adaptation to it’s environment. To be mal-adaptive to human civilization and advancements, regardless of your personal opinions about them, is to become a “weak link”.

      Do you even know why we have civilization?

      Our earliest version, a Primitive man, was certainly “racially pure”. He lived alone, uncivilized, self-sustained, drama free, wandering within an untouched, vast, magnificently beautiful wilderness, at one with all of nature.

      Is that what you are imagining we truly “are” at heart? The original conditions and state of mankind being more conducive for our survival? It’s a nice fairytale, I know.

      It gives us some appealing idea of simplicity, a real fantasy illusion of an almost desireable regression of human evolution, especially after spending a few weeks in the Bronx, or after a day or two in Detroit. But, this is lacking a broad grasp of the human condition, and incorrect in the basic assumptions of this uncivilized primitive human world.

      In the Animal world, primitive Man was not a predator. He was a mid-scale omnivorous, non-agressive, mammal, with no evolved biological weaponry or physical defense mechanism. Nothing for his protection from others, much larger, faster, physically capable, and hungry predator mammals.

      The initial conditions for the first homosapien were largely unfavorable for his survival. This one readon why civilizations began to form. The continuing human growth, progress, and innovation and our simultaneously diminishing “racial purity” over time and generations, also go hand and hand.

      It was absolutly necessary to continue to increase our intelligence.

      Is this not plain to see for everyone else?

    The Antichrist shows his ugly face in the poles of both the capitalist “free” “West” vs. the communists, and in the present gloming conflict between anti-traditional wahbite “muhammedansim” vs. the “humanitarian” surveilance monster of the “West.”

    Antichrist perverts and feigns to be the authentic, and Hitlers revival of ancient Germanic ideals was also such a perversion. It would be more apropriate to call Tolkien a restorer of the germanic past, but of course he was not the Mahdi or Kalki.

    The real restorer, the Mahdi, the white rider Kalki, will likely be a spiritual figure like the beloved Prophet.

    No one knows how and when the final cataclysm will arrive. But the signs of the ancient prophecies are today very present.

    The prophecy of the popes ends with this current pope Bergoglio, ” and the dreadful judge shall judge the people.”
